Dan and Mark were great hosts for Polly. Very accommodating with drop off and pick up times and took great care of her for the weekend. Highly recommended!
I can't say enough great things about Max's recent stay with Dan and Mark. It was clear from the many photo and video updates they sent me that Max was having a ball. He got to play with other dogs and came back to me mellow, relaxed and happy. It's such a comfort to know that your fur baby is being cared for with such love. Thanks again Dan and Mark.
Dan was an awesome dog-sitter! Dan took care of our doggy (Terry) for several nights while we were out of town. Terry was happy, well-fed, and full of life and excitement when we picked him up. It was also great receiving the updates (pictures and videos) of Terry during our trip. We recommend anyone who is looking for a caring dog-sitter to check out Dan. We will definitely rely on Dan in the future. Thanks again Dan!
Dan and Mark are amazing hosts and Nollie just fits right in every time. Super accommodating and I couldn't recommend them highly enough! Daily videos of Nollie playing let me know he's very well looked after. Thanks again guys, appreciate the love and care you show to Nollie!!
I left my dog with Dan for the first time recently and I was extremely happy with the experience. I was away for one week and Dan sent me videos and pictures of her at least twice a day, keeping me updated on how she was doing. She seemed to settle in quickly, he took her on many walks, and gave her lots of attention. When I got home Molly was happy and I could tell she had been well looked after. Dan is very reliable and responsible, which allowed me to relax and know that my dog was in good hands while I was away. Thank you Dan!
Dan is really patient and careful guy! My wife and I were impressed! It was the first time when we leave our dog, and my wife worried a lot, but Dan was on the ball! We highly recommend Dan as a sitter.
Our dog, Molly, recently spent one week with Dan. Molly had a wonderful time and she considers Dan her new best friend! Dan and Mark took such good care of Molly. Our family enjoyed receiving daily videos and snap shots of Molly on her outings. We would definitely refer Dan to our family and friends. We would have no reservations in sending Molly to Dan and Mark again. Thanks so much for taking such wonderful care of Molly!!

Halle had a fabulous stay! Thank you Dan
Highly recommended host! Nollie had an awesome time and I can just imagine he was in doggy heaven with all the toys and affection he got over the weekend. Super easy to arrange pick up and drop off times too. Thanks again and hopefully will have the opportunity to re book some time soon :)
Great interaction, it was a short over night stay. He got a couple walks and was a happy camper. If we are in the area and need somewhere for our dog to stay we woul definitely return!
Dan was amazing - flexible and professional. We will book with him again!
Dan was great. Very responsive, accommodating and communicative while we were away (lots of vids and pics). Would highly recommend him to others.
I have a nervous dog, despite this she settled in very well and was well taken care of. I would definitely leave her again
This was a really positive experience for me. My booking with Dan was last minute, as my previous plans fell through. He was extremely accommodating of irregular drop off and pick up times, necessitated by my travel schedule. He was flexible and communicative about the booking process as well as my dog's stay. Dan sent me at least once daily videos of my dog's stay, as well as text updates. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan for this service, and will use him again.
These guys really came threw under VERY short notice. Our 2 little pups came back fitter than ever!! Thanks again guys! R&H.
Awesome. Recommended highly!!! Great people great dog lovers!
My husband and I are from Toronto, and we went to Vancouver for a couple of days with our pooch. We needed someone to watch Oreo for one day while we explore the city. I chose Mark/Dan because of all the positive reviews they have on their profile, and am glad I did! I really appreciated and enjoyed the status and photo updates that Mark sent us every few hours. Oreo was pooped by end of day so he must have had a super fun time walking/running/playing around. Mark was really easy to deal with and great with dogs, I really have no complaints. Will definitely bring Oreo back with him if we're ever back in the area. Thanks Mark!
Thanks so much, Dan & Mark for taking care of Freddie. I got a very happy, relaxed, sleepy dog back after you'd had him for the night. 100% recommended.
Had a great overnight stay!
Tired out and happy as usual :)
Gronk had so much fun at Dan's! He got plenty of playtime in and was tuckered out (in a good way) when I brought him home. Dan even managed to get him to do his "business" outside, which we've had troubles with so far since training him on a pee pad.

It's not easy dealing with a puppy all day but Dan must have lots of patience—he did an excellent job :) I will definitely be booking again!
Another great stay for Logan! He seems to feel completely at home with Dan and his dog, appreciate being able to travel without worrying!
I was very skeptical about dogvacay website when trying to find a sitter for my dog during the move to Vancouver. I'm glad that I had an opportunity to meet and greet this guy in such short notice; not only to find out he is very professional, friendly, caring and welcoming, but also they'll put me at ease and leave me nothing to worry about for stressful week ahead. Nikita was well-taken care of, this guy help my dog to adjust with Vancouver city and develop her new walking routine which I greatly appreciated it. She definitely loves to be around Dan and Mark, to the point where Nikita has surprisingly walked me back to their place and waited at the front door. Highly recommended and of course it was great knowing you guys. ;)
Logan enjoyed another great stay with Dan and I appreciate his flexibility with regard to drop off and pick up, he is extremely accommodating. Also enjoyed the frequent updates and photos. Thanks again!
It was clear when I picked up Abby that she had had a great time with Dan. Dan took care of Abby's every need so that she came back well-exercised, happy, and content.
SO happy with the love and care Dan + Mark + Nuvuk gave to my dog while I was away for 1 week!! i would definitely recommend them to people and will use them again! Thanks guys!!!
Our Bernese Mountain Dog stayed with Dan for almost a week and it was a great experience! We believe he got excellent care and returned home happy and healthy. We appreciate the time Dan took to find about about Logan's needs and we knew that Logan felt really at home with Dan as soon as they met. I highly recommend this caregiver!
Dan was awesome! Lola had great time. I loved that he sent pics of her enjoying her days. I would definitely book with Dan again.
Thank you so much for watching little Mounty again! We notice that she comes back with even more 'manners' after she's been with you all, and certainly comes back tired after all the playing and walks. We can't thank you enough for your wonderful care!
Guaiguai has spent almost 10 days with Dan and Guaiguai is very happy. Dan has shown his great attention and passion to Guaiguai. He even comes back from his work to look after Guaiguai every noon time. We received Guaiguai's photo everyday. Thanks Dan, we will like to have Guaiguai staying with you again at our next trip.
We were so happy with the excellent care that they provided for Mounty!! We could tell she had a great time with them, and came home tired and happy. We really look forward to having her stay again in the near future!
