About Patricio

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and myself live in a single- family house with our very friendly 3 year old German Shepherd girl. We have a large securely fenced yard for your dog to enjoy.

Your pet can choose to sleep either on a comfy dog bed or on the couch. However, if they prefer to sleep outside, we can accommodate that as well.

Our daily routines vary between, playing at the nearby Kennedy Grove Recreational Area, hiking along the El Sobrante Ridge, going to the Pinole Dog Park or simply walking around our neighborhood.

We know how it feels to go on vacation and worry about were to leave our dog. Rest assured that we will take great care of your pet so please don't worry and enjoy your vacation !!!

Thank you again Patricio for taking care of Fons. It was great to see his pictures. He loves being at your place!
Thank you Patricio & Ina for taking good care of Fons! He loves coming to your place!!!
Pat was great! We had a meet and greet before Shadow's first stay and his dog Laika is a real sweetie. While I was away, he shared adorable photos of her, as well as of her and Laika getting along. Pat was also incredibly accommodating for drop off and pick up times, since our work schedules weren't perfectly compatible. I will definitely look to Pat in the future when I am traveling and Shadow needs a home away from home!
Fons loves to go to Patricio and his family!
This was our first time leaving our dog with a dog sitter. Patricio provided safe and clean environment. He also sent us pictures and video update of our dog playing with his dog Laika. Our dog Sasha had a great time. We'll be back again!!
Patricio was very welcoming and a pleasure to have watch over our fur-children for a week! He took a lot of time to spend with them each day and ensured our high energy aussie got the exercise he needed while our older aussie was well rested. We would gladly have Patricio watch our dogs any time and his dog got along w/ ours very well! Thank you again!!!
Bug had a lovely time, and Patricio is kind and patient with my little old dog.
Patricio is kind and accommodating. My dog had a lovely time.
Patricio is a very kind gentle accommodating host! My little dog was fine.
I think Riley may have had more fun on his vacation than we did. He wasn't sure he wanted to leave when my husband picked him up. He came home happy and relaxed and we will definitely use Pat again.
Thanks again for taking such good care of Fons. He loves coming to your place!!! Ione & Ben
Thank you for taking care of Fons & the great pictures! We can see he enjoys staying at your place. Sorry we picked him up so late in the evening. See you soon!
Patricio and his pups are AMAZING! I'll definitely book him again ??
Patricio, Thanks again for taking good care of Fons. He loves coming to your place! We loved the pictures you send us. Ione & Ben
We have not left our dog with anyone in over 5 years. Ninja, our Boarder Collie is very sensitive, and I was worried how she would do. Pat sent us pictures both days, she looked happy, and relaxed. We were really appreciative how caring both Pat, and his wife Ina were. So nice to find someone we feel we can trust, and our dog seems to enjoy being with...can't say thank you enough

Fons had another great time at Patricio's place! We also got a lot of pictures. You could tell Fons was relaxed and enjoying his stay. 10/10
Fons had such a fun time at Patricio's place!
Fons, our golden retriever, loves going to Patricio!!!
Excellent, as always.
We have great respect for Patricio and his wife. They are wonderful people, and we would recommend them highly.
We think Trevor was well taken care of with Patricio. Evidently he even slept with them on their bed when he was feeling lonely! He came back calm and tired -- a good sign.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Fons, our Golden Retriever!!!
And it's was so nice of you to send us pictures while he was at your place.
We'll definitely contact you for a next time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Ginger had great time staying with Patricio again. He and his wife took great care of her and she was happy, relaxed and tired once we got her home. Looking forward to her next stay there!
Patricio had a super fast response time and was willing to work around my inconvenient drop-off/pick-up times. He sent me pictures throughout the week so I could maintain some peace of mind on my trip. His dog bonded well with mine!
We highly recommend Patricio! He took great care of our sensitive dog, Ginger. He sent us a lot of photos and she looked very happy and relaxed. She got to have a lot of playtime with his sweet dog, Laika. He was very communicative and accommodating. When we picked up Ginger, she was happy and tired, so we could tell she had a lot of fun. We will definitely book another stay for Ginger.
Patricio has a lovely place with a great yard and a gentle dog already in residence. I loved the photo I received, and Bug had a wonderful time!
We feel so fortunate to have found Patricio. He contacted us early to view his home and to socialize Xev with his German Shepherd. During her stay, he uploaded photos and provided status updates. We never had to worry about her or wonder about her experience. Patricio provided a stable and loving environment. When we returned to pick her up, she didn't want to leave. We will continue to use Patricio for future visits.
5 stars! Patricio was very kind and accommodating. Our Doxie got along great with his pup and came home tired and happy! We'll be booking with them again in the future for sure.
We were most pleased with Petey's meet and greet with Patricio and Ina,and their lovely dog Laika.
We booked an overnight with them and Petey became fast friends with them and their beautiful girl dog Laika.
They have a lovely yard to play in,toys,water bowls,and a large generous sofa for Laika and her dog companions to sleep or rest on.
Their love of dogs is apparent,as was their care of our dog Petey.
They welcomed his playful nature and balanced it with their wisdom in directing and engaging his energies,with guidance,and Laika was a gentle balance for our playful Petey's youthful nature.
We look forward to Petey's next dog vacay with Patricio,his wife Ina,and their lovely dog Laika.
Patricio, his wife and their German Shepherd,Leika were very good hosts to our 3 year old Rottweiler and our 7 year old beagle. They both have a lot of energy and were taken on outings and/or walks daily. He also has a nice backyard where they played. Our beagle made instant friends with Leika. We have a dogsitter who usually stays with the dogs at our home. This was the first time we had them stay elsewhere and were a little nervous about how they would adjust. Patricio sent pictures every day, and judging by the first photo he sent, they settled in immediately. We will definitely book with him again.
Patricio is great! He and his wife were very accommodating and friendly to my older labrador. We look forward to reserving time with them again!
Excellent in every way! Host is great about making the arrangements, communicating, sending photos of my dog, plus my dog loves being at his house and playing with his dog.
Bella has found her home away from home with Patricio. It is a joy to leave her where she will be happy, well cared for, exercised, and with compatible dogs to play with.
Patricio was a wonderful, wonderful sitter for my 1 yr old pup! He is very experienced, attentive, and very flexible with your schedule if needed. He even dropped off my dog at my house without me asking... He is really a considerate and kind person to do business with. My puppy was happy and very very calm after staying with him. Thanks Patricio! :)
Bella loves to play with Patricio;s dog, and to be a guest there. There is a very nice fenced back yard, and good caregivers. Could not be better. Plus, Patricio is generous with sending photos!
If I could sum up my experience in one word .... it would be "AWESOME". Patricio was wonderful and my best pal Cooper came home very happy and was obviously very well cared for. Patricio was incredibly easy to deal with and very responsive - not to mention very, very nice. I could not more highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking about using DogVacay!! Thanks Patricio...
Our experience leaving our dog Charlie with Patricio (and Laika!) was truly amazing. Charlie stayed over for 10 nights (we ended up getting delayed on our return flight, and booked an extra night with Patricio last-minute -- he was incredibly accommodating!). We received pictures of Charlie daily, as well as updates on how he was doing, and Patricio was very responsive via email. Charlie and Laika got along extremely well from their first meeting (and it didn't hurt that they look and act like twins!); Laika is a sweet girl who made Charlie feel more than comfortable during his stay. We will definitely be bringing Charlie over to play with his "twin" many more times. WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!!!
This was absolutely great for my dog.
My dog had a glorious time at Patricio's house, being loved and cared for, and playing with his wonderful dog, Laika. He sent me photo updates, so I was happy to see that my dog was thoroughly enjoying herself. I hope I can go away again so Bella can have another visit there.
Luna's stay with Patricio was so wonderful that we decided she should stay another night. She is a rescue dog who is sometimes very shy when she first meets you. She immediately loved Patricio and soon became good friends with his girl Laika, a 2 year old Geman Shepherd, who has taken Luna under her wing. Patricio has kept us updated on the fun activities by sending us emails with photos and also a video on my cellphone. We are delighted to say the least.
