About Vincent

24 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I love pups of all types!

My home is located in Denver's Arts District on Santa Fe, and provide in-home boarding, grooming, bathing, training and pick-up and drop off in the downtown area.

I aim to accommodate the needs of my clients and their pets, and I come highly recommended with references from former guests in our community. Moreover, your pup will rarely be left home alone, as I work around dogs all day at Denver's Premier Dog Shop - Woof in Boots. Because of my flexibility, my clients can always choose between interacting with other pups or having them stay in my home during the day. Some dogs may be unable to join me, such as pups who have not yet had their vaccines or who are ill.

For higher energy pets, I am happy to offer long distance walks, runs or hikes, and use commands that your pet is comfortable to hearing. If you need something special for your pup, just ask me!

I look forward to meeting you and your faithful companion, and providing your pup with lots and lots of love, attention and belly rubs while you're away from home.

Vincent was a great sitter. Took excellent care of my dog and was easy to communicate with. Will definitely use Vincent next time I have to leave town.
It was a great experience
Vincent worked out well as we needed someone to watch our dog while we spent the day in the city.
Vincent was great! I was originally traveling without my husband but last minute he decided to come with me on my trip. We needed a dog sitter in a hurry. Vincent was happy to accommodate us and we had our meet and greet the same day I contacted him. George loved staying with him! I got picture updates and he even got to tag along to work with Vincent. He's been asleep for 8 hours resting up from all the fun he had. My dog has severe allergies (grass) and requires medication, etc. which Vincent had no problem doing on schedule! Last time we left our dog with someone it was a nightmare experience (not through Dog Vacay) so we are happy to have found Vincent on this site. Thanks, Vincent! George will be back again.
Vincent was flexible and has a welcoming home. He was great about sending us pictures while we were away, too, which gave us peace of mind. Definitely recommend!
I usually don't write reviews. However, Vincent was amazing with my guy. My dog can be snarky with other dogs depending on their energy level. Which makes it hard to find someone who is comfortable with this to watch him. I was so excited when I met Vincent and he not only was comfortable with this but understood my guys behavior ! It was also nice to see that my own dog was able to get along with his.

He is now my go to dog sitter for when I have to leave town.
Vincent was a very good dog watcher while I was gone for a week. My 6 month year old isn't fully house broken but that was okay. When I returned she seemed happy, actually tired from playing with the other dogs which is great, and she seemed to have been well taken care of.
Vincent kept Ollie while we celebrated our granddaughters' birthdays. He was flexible with drop off and pick up times and is also very likeable.
I'm so glad Banner stayed with Vincent while we were on vacation! Vincent was very prompt at replying to messages, which I really appreciated. He is also very knowledgeable when it comes to pet care. Banner unfortunately developed an eye infection during his stay. Not only did Vincent let us know, but he ended up taking Banner to the vet to get him checked out and for some medication. I would definitely recommend Vincent to anyone, and won't hesitate to have Banner stay with him in the future!
Vincent took great care of my three dogs over the Labor Day holiday. They got to go to doggie day care each day which was a great bonus. He sent some great photos while I was away.

All three were worn out and happy when I picked them up. Vincent was also great when I was later than expected picking them up, which was very much appreciated.
As always, Vincent does an excellent job taking care of our dogs. He makes sure they have a good environment, play time, walks, love and attention.
Vincent provides a wonderful environment for pets. He is attentive, caring and responsible. I would highly recommend him!
Vincent was amazing with our two dogs. Sasha is 14 years old and Bella is 1 1/2 years, so they run the gamut with energy. He was so good with them! With Sasha being a senior, she has specific dietary needs/restrictions and can seem a little high maintenance. He had no issues or complaints about keeping her within her diet. I don't know that my dogs wanted to leave when I was ready to pick them up!
Vincent was great and very responsive! I had a very short notice to travel for work and Vincent was very accommodating with my time and schedules. My little guy slept for good 16hours when we got home! Will definitely use Vincent again in future.
Some serious pick-up problems, but after that everything was great. Couldn't have been better. Cool guy. Cool house. Tired, happy dog when I got home.
Cream of the crop. Here's a professional who is good at his craft and he loves what he does. One of the most reviewed and highest rated persons on the site, and there is a reason why. He is the best. Thank You Vincent
As always it's a pleasure to have my dogs stay with Vincent.
Vincent was quick to respond to the petsitting request and made everything very easy! Sent messages to let me know my pups were doing great while I was away. And it was wonderful to know they could play with the pack of dogs at Woof in Boots while he was at work. All in all a wonderful experience.
Vincent is awesome. He has a wonderful house, and owns a dog day care across the street. Our dogs are excited to be dropped with him. We cannot imagine a better caretaker for our German Shephards when we are away. Thanks.
Vincent was great! I was able to drop off and pick up my puppy with no issues and when I got him back he was exhausted yet happy. He got to play with other dogs for two days straight and seemed to have really liked being there. I don't live in Denver but if I'm ever back and need a pet sitter I would definitely come back to Vincent. The best part is that Vincent lives across the street from his business "Woof in Boots" and him and his employees were very helpful. I know that my puppy was in good, professional hands and was never just left alone. Thanks Vincent, Woof in Boots employees and of course Dog Vacay!
This is the second time we left our labradoodle Roger with Vincent. He always come home exhausted, so I know he is getting plenty of attention and exercise with Vincent. I like that Vincent sends us pictures and updates on how Roger is doing. I will definitely use Vincent everytime we go on vacation!
This was my first experience using the website and also a dog sitter. I had a bit of anxiety leaving my Shiba Inu, Momo, for the first time but Vincent was very accessible and professional which alleviated my worries. He has a very cute setup at home and a big bonus was that Momo could hang out at his doggy day care, Woof in Boots, during the day. I also liked that Vincent has a Shiba Inu so he understands their unique personalities. I would definitely use his services again!
Vincent was very friendly and welcoming. He took great care of our needy Basset Hound. We will definitely leave him again
Vincent saved our night!

I needed a responsible person to watch my 8lb pup for a few hours late night and last minute.

What I got was a pro who makes his living caring for animals.

Vincent responded within minutes to the request and went out of his way to make handing the pooch over to him easy for us.

Next time we have to check out the store Woof in boots!
I was very pleased with my entire experience with Vincent and his team. He was incredibly accommodating and flexible with my schedule. I loved that my dogs were able to stay in someone's home and get plenty of attention! I will use them for all my trips in the future!
As always the pups have a great time when staying with Vincent :)
My husband and I travel almost every single weekend, so finding Vincent was a huge relief! Vincent is very flexible with drop off and pick up times, which is really helpful given our chaotic schedules. Lelah has stayed with Vincent about 4-5 times so far, and each time she comes home tired and happy. Plus, he's working on opening a rooftop doggy playpark!

Vincent was awesome as always! Very responsive and our little furry girl came home happy!
Vincent was fantastic! Very flexible with our schedules for meet ups and drop offs. We dropped the pups off at his shop across the way and he was very timely about letting us know when he was home and how they were doing etc. We loved getting a couple of photos after the first day, they got some great playtime in his yard and got along great with his other dogs. They must've played HARD because they slept for 15 hours straight once we got home! We are very happy with our experience and will definitely book with Vincent again! 5 stars, we would recommend him to anyone :)

Second time I've had my pups stay with Vincent, they both loved it and it gave me peace of mind while traveling!
Vincent was a great host for Pearl and me. Pearl had a good time with Vincent and his dogs and it was great for me knowing I didn't have to worry about her like I normally do when I go out of town. I will definitely try to get Vincent to keep her again the next time I go out of town.
This is the second time I have left Marshall with Vincent and have been very pleased. I picked him up this afternoon and he has done nothing but sleep since - which is normally a good indicator that he has had a good time with Vincent's own pups. Will definitely use again. Thanks Vincent. Dan
A+. Thanks Vincent!
Vincent did a great job again with Seamus! Highly recommend him!
Vincent was an excellent host for Codah while I was traveling. She definitely enjoyed her stay and was utterly exhausted by the time we got home. I will absolutely have Vincent watch her again the next time I travel :)
My wife and I needed a last minute sitter for Sheba for a few days and Vincent was there for us! Vincent sent updates and photos of Sheba during her stay. When I picked up Sheba she looked very happy with Vincent and the care he provided. I am happy to have found Vincent and would both use him again and recommend him to anyone.
Vincent is great, and so easy to work with! Highly recommend him!
Once again Vincent did a great job with Seamus! I definitely will use him again.
Vincent and Kim were great!!! They were super responsive while I was gone, providing updates and a picture throughout the weekend! Boston had a great time meeting new friends, we will definitely be back! Highly recommended!
I have never left my dogs with a sitter before, but Vincent was great. The dogs had a great time & came home tired & happy. I will definitely use Vincent again.
Good stay. Thanks Vincent
Vincent was great, Lucy had a great time staying with he and his family. It was a safe fenced in environment and lots of supervision and care.
Great experience, and was very accommodating. Would repeat.
Took great care of my dog and kept him nice and happy!
I debated on writing this because I'm not typically the type of person to give a bad review, but I feel like in this case I should. Who knows if it will even be seen by anyone before it gets deleted, but whatever.
Vincent was really nice when we met and he was nice enough to text me back whenever I'd check in on my two dogs, but when I picked them up and something seemed off, he wouldn't respond. My dog was not himself when we got him home and it turned out he got kennel cough. I text Vincent to see if anything happened or if he noticed anything strange, but NO RESPONSE. I was very worried about my dog and it makes me so upset that he wouldn't get back to me about it.
I'm pretty sure my dogs were staying at his boarding business instead of his house. I didn't mind them going to day care every once in awhile to socialize with other dogs, but the whole reason we used Dogvacy.com was to avoid having them boarded. So that is very frustrating, especially since we paid a ton of money to have them stay with Vincent, not at his boarding place.
I will say that his groomer, Rebecca, is awesome and did a great job. She was very good with the boys.
I guess it's partially my fault for not seeing the signs or for pushing the subject that we DID NOT want them boarded, but I figured that was a given since we booked for HIM through dogvacay and did not book through Woof in Boots to have them boarded. It's just really frustrating to pay so much money and put your trust into someone, thinking they will take care of your babies, and they don't. We are very very disappointed.
Vincent was great. He took the time to make sure he knew all of the appropriate details for my dog Marshall as well as his usual habits. It was evident that Vincent really love dog's and enjoys their company. Marshall came back home extremely tired - which generally means he had a great time. Will definitely use again
I believe Vincent supplied "Addy" with a wonderful experience while I had to be out of the city. Her housing was extremely dog friendly, she had to receive medication for the first few days and she came home beautifully groomed, well, and happy. I do believe she has been a little lonely for the good time she had on her vacation! Thank you so much to Vincent and his family for giving me peace of mind. I could contact Vincent at any time and he texted back with photos and kind words. Hoping Addy can return in the future.
Vincent was the best. Plain and simple. Our initial meet and greet was easy and comfortable, we immediately felt at ease with leaving our pup with Vincent for a long weekend. When we returned from our trip our flight was delayed and we were not able to pick up from Vincent until about 10:40PM, nearly two hours later than we were originally supposed to. Vincent could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Highly recommended and we will definitely be booking with Vincent again!
Vincent takes great care of Griffin while we are traveling. I will definitely be using him again in the future!
Vincent was great! Super knowledgable and very hospitable to both my girlfriend and I and our puppy. We'll definitely be using him in the future. Would highly recommend!
Vincent did a great job with my dog Seamus, he had a great time! Will definitely use him again.
Vince's place is great - nice yard and friendly people - my dog wasn't ready to leave!
Vincent was great! Sally seemed like she had a great time while staying at his place! Thank you for being awesome and taking care of my pup, Vincent!
Vincent was great and very responsive! Really friendly guy and super easy to coordinate drop off and pick up!
Ozzie had a great time staying at Woof in Boots for 2.5 weeks. He made friends and was well cared for. Thank you, see you next time!!!
My husband and I very much appreciated that Vincent was willing to watch our dog on such short notice so that we could have some time to ourselves. When we picked Sven up, he was fresh and clean!
Rex came home tired and happy from his weekend with Vincent! Would definitely use this host again.
My dog Tuck had a wonderful stay with Vincent. I was very nervous to leave him and he made me feel much better. When I picked Tuck up he was very happy and tired from a fun weekend! I would happily leave Tuck with Vincent again! :)
Vincent is great. I have used him several times in the past few months. He is always very accommodating with my travel schedule, and takes great care if my dog. My dog always comes home happy and gets excited everytime we pull up to Vincent's place. I highly reccomendation him!
I wanted to find a place that Luba would feel comfortable at simply because she can be a bit skittish around people she doesn't know. When I found Vincent I knew this is where I wanted her to stay. Vincent didn't rush Luba, he knew how to welcome her in a experienced and professional way. Vincent has a dog and two cats (Luba has never seen a cat so this was a new experience for her, and she did really well with it), and he also has a boarding and grooming facility that he owns across the street.
I couldn't have asked for a better place, I am so happy that I found Vincent and I would definitely recommend his services!!
I really question where my dog was while staying with Vince since I was charged both through DogVacay and through his grooming and boarding shop. The charges from the shop were eventually taken care of but only after calling him several days in a row. I have not and will not use Vince again.
Vincent was such a fantastic host for my puppy Ollie! He sent me great pictures and text updates on Ollie's progress, was really flexible with my schedule, and totally understood Ollie's unique needs as a puppy. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a host!
My puppy, Archie, had a great time staying with Vincent while we went to dinner. Great service. I would recommend Vincent.
Our dog Blake absolutely loved his stay with Vincent! Vincent was so thoughtful and sent us pictures of Blake during his stay. Overall, I would definitely recommend Vincent to all of my friends!
Vincent has looked after our two dogs twice now and both times he has done a fantastic job. His attention to detail and personable nature leaves us without any worries when we drop off our dogs. Our reservations are handled quickly and we haven't had any problems at all when picking up the dogs. Vincent is our go-to dog sitter! Highly Recommended.
Can't say enough good things about Vincent, Luna and Mozzie love their time spent with him and his family!

Our one dog Luna had some stomach issues and Vincent took care of everything. I really appreciate that he keeps my wife and I updated and sends photos as well.

Will definitely use again!

What can I say that hasn't already been said in the other reviews? This was our first time using DogVacay for our two dogs Mozzie and Luna and it was an excellent experience. Vincent is truly a quintessential "dog person" and I had zero qualms about leaving our two little ones with him.

Great home, great caretaker and he even sent us photos to update us on Mozzie and Luna.

We also had Vincent groom them and I can say it was the best groom either of our dogs have had to date, I can't believe how soft they are now.

We will DEFINITELY be using Vincent again in the future!

It was great
Vincent was absolutely great! I was somewhat nervous for the well being of my pup initially since I have never boarded or kenneled him, but Vincent made me feel so comfortable and at ease with the process. I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat, I loved the fact he wasn't stuck in a kennel all day and that he was able to interact with other dogs and have a doggie vacation while I was away. The whole entire process was so quick and Vincent was so easy to work with, and I could genuinely tell he cares and has a passion for dogs. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone to take great care of your pup.
Vincent was great. He took our last minute reservation and saved us. Our puppy had a great time. We are very appreciative of the care and attention Vincent gave Nanuk. We would definitely use Vincent again!
Vincent and his family were very accomadating during the holiday season. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my baby. She had a great time!!
Koda really enjoys staying with Vincent! With a dog shop right next stoor, my pup is always with someone and is able to play with other dogs when not in Vincen'ts home. He's always tired out when I pick him up, so I know he gets a lot of activity here!
Vincent was wonderful! He was extremely accommodating to having our 4 month old puppy stay last minute for Thanksgiving! We felt very comfortable leaving her there, and Vincent sent us picture updates anytime we asked! We've already confirmed our puppy staying with Vincent for a few days over Christmas! So happy we found someone that we trust to take care of her! Thanks Vincent!
Vincent made my first experience with Dogvacay an enjoyable one-- from the meet-n-greet to seeing Jax the day I returned from the holiday weekend. His concierge service is definitely a differentiator when it comes to other hosts which I took advantage of. Jax was completely wiped out after playing at dog daycare all day while I received daily updates and pictures. Vincent is a very accomodating host and I will definitely use him again in the future. Vincent comes highly recommended-- you won't feel bad about being gone away from your pet for a few days, as he is in good hands.
Vincent knows what it takes to make your puppy happy and to make sure you feel good about leaving your four-legged family member behind during the holidays. Awesome experience, highly recommend!!
Vincent was awesome. Responded almost immediately to my reservation and made arrangements for a meet n greet. He was able to watch my 12 week old puppy for the weekend. Puppys can be a handful and Vincent took care of him wonderfully. I was returned a very happy dog. He is a great option for someone needing a dog sitter. I would definitely use him again!
The dogs had a great time with Vincent, when they came home they were both wiped out! His house is great, with a big backyard and his dog business is right across the street if needed. Vincent was great to us as well, we were running late coming back into town and he was understanding and allowed us to come later to pick the dogs up. The dogs cannot wait to go back and play again soon!
Everything about the experience of meeting Vincent and introducing Dolly to a new environment was excellent. His home and outside area were immaculate and it was nice knowing he could take Dolly to work with him - across the street to his doggie day care company! Any dog owner should feel comfortable leaving their pet in his care.
I picked up Zeus on Tuesday and he looked wonderful. From what I could see, he had a great time and enjoyed all the dogs around him. I would definitely recommend Vincent to take care of my dog again.
Vincent was great. He was able to take Gatsby on short notice and even picked her up and dropped her off. I will definitely use him again knowing my dog is in good hands.
Vincent is an excellent host: easy to work with and considerate. Highly Recommend.
This was a horrible experience. Vincent promised 24/7 supervision, which was the main reason I chose him. My number one concern was that my dog not be left alone during a storm because of severe storm anxiety, which I made clear, in writing and in conversations, multiple times. I left my dog in his care for ten days, and heard from Vincent only once, early on, that all was fine. When I went to pick my dog up, however, I discovered he had been left alone three days earlier during a storm and as a result tried to escape from a chicken wire dog run in the back. When I picked up my dog he had a 4 inch wound on his front leg, had ripped out two back claws completely, and his front dew claw was bent at a right angle. He also lost ten pounds. He had on a makeshift cone of shame and not only had I not been contacted about any of this, but he had also not been taken to a vet. When I took him myself to a vet the next day, they said he was demonstrating the same sort of signs they saw from dogs that had been alone on the streets for several days. My hope is that DogVacay will break all ties with this host.
Meg had a great time with Vincent and was all worn out from playing when she got home. Thanks for taking such good care of her!
Vincent helped me out in a pinch. From the moment I met him and toured his home and business, I knew my dog would be in good hands. During the week I was gone, Vincent kept in touch via text, including photos. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my dog was in such good hands and being cared for in such a nice and caring way. I definitely recommend Vincent - you won't be disappointed!
Drop off was easy, and Vincent returned our pups to our house. The pups seemed like they had a great time and have been tired for days after a week of playing.
Vincent watched my 2 English Bulldogs while we were away and everything was great! They were able to be in doggy daycare at Woof in Boots during the day and stay with Vincent at night. Every time i called they gave me updates and were very personable which I appreciate when people have my pups. I would recommend Vincent and his shop any day. Thanks much!
Vincent was great!! Easy to get in touch with, the location was easy to get to and my dog was happy as a clam when I picked him up.
Vincent was great! He has such a great set up. Our dog Archie was able to romp around with other dogs all day at Vincent's doggie day care (which sometimes included a trip to the dog park!), and then settle in with Vincent at home at night. I could tell Archie was in good hands. Vincent was very flexible with pick up and drop off times, too. Highly recommend!
We had a great experience with Vincent! He was very responsive from the meet-n-greet and for all subsequent communications including while we were gone - providing status updates about how our dog Cody was doing. We will definitely use him in the future.
We left our six-month old pup, Amelia, with Vincent for four days while we went skiing and were very pleased!

We had looked into boarding options and I did like the social aspect of it but came to DogVacay because having a younger dog means she still requires a bit more one-on-one attention and still needs to go out during the night, which certain boarding places can't always accommodate. Vincent was basically the best of both worlds! He also owns a pet shop that does boarding, grooming, day care, etc. So Amelia got to go with him to the pet shop and socialize and play her little heart out during the day and then stayed with Vincent at his home at night so he could provide her with that little extra attention we were looking for! It was perfect!

I was little hesitant leaving Amelia with someone we did not know for the first time, but my anxiety quickly subsided. Vincent sent pictures of Amelia and updates on how things were going throughout the weekend, which I loved!

Vincent was also extremely accommodating with our schedule. He was totally fine with our last minute reservation and he did not charge us extra even though we were going to be picking her up a couple hours into what would have technically been the fifth day. We both travel for work and, although we try to avoid overlapping trips as much as possible, I feel much better now knowing we have someone like Vincent to leave Amelia with when we are out of town!
Vincent was amazing. He was able to accommodate a very last minute request and took care of my pup like he was his own. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
Very good care, plus was able to bath and do a trim for me while I was out of town. My pooch was definitely tired after playing with lots of other dogs while I was away, so its always good to have him socialize with others. Would recommend for anyone looking for a professional.
Vincent was very responsive and accommodating in making a last minute reservation as well as in arranging pick-up and drop-off. Would recommend!
I had a great experience with Vincent. I needed to find a sitter at the last minute and he worked with my schedule to set up a meeting. He was also very accomodating on drop off/pick up times. I appreciated his straight forward answers to what the stay would be like and his willingness to work with my expectations. My dog was comfortable with him right away. He was even able to send me a photo -quite a feat with my dog! I would definitely recommend him!
Vincent did a great job with Buddy. Buddy is shy with most adults at first but he took to Vincent right away. He also came home tuckered out and slept like a baby. Just the way I like him. I will definitely have Vincent watch Buddy again.
Vincent was great with my pups! He walked them daily while I was out of town and my roommate said they always seemed happy and tired when he got home. He is a really nice, trustworthy guy with tons of experience. I will definitely use his services again!
