About Kevin

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Though I currently have no pets of my own (...due to needing to travel for work on occasion), I've grown up with dogs or cared for them my entire life -- two back at home in Texas (the black & white photo) and have pet sit for numerous friend's dogs (...all the other photos).

I work from home which allows me to take care of dogs on weekdays and weekends and am happy to accept last-minute reservations. I'm also flexible with pick-up and drop-off times.

I have a house with a yard in a nice neighborhood and can walk the dogs several times a day as needed. When I have pet sit in the past, I usually take the dogs on walks along the East Foothills here in North San Jose (or up the hills if a dog is fit enough). There are also several nearby parks and grassy areas as well.

The house is about 10-15 minutes from San Jose International Airport and CalTrans San Jose Station so very easy for drop-off and pick-up of your pup if traveling.

Thanks and Happy DogVacay-ing!

I had to go out of town for the first time since I adopted Bailey and Tucker 4 years ago and I didn’t know how they would do being away from home and their owner. I looked at many Dog Vacay possibilities and ended up choosing Kevin and am so very happy I did.

Kevin took as much time as I needed at the meet and greet to answer any questions and make sure Bailey and Tucker were comfortable with the environment. He texted me when Bailey’s breathing seemed a little off (normal for her). He also sent a few pictures of T&B on a walk, which I enjoyed.

To my surprise I felt totally comfortable with leaving B&T in Kevin’s care. I thought I would worry for my entire trip. There was no worrying at all. From the moment I dropped them off, to the pick-up, I was comfortable in knowing my furry family members were comfortable and well cared for.

Kevin is fantastic. I recently left him with my two very active springer spaniels for almost two weeks. Kevin took great care of them with lots of walks, attention and play. He allowed me to enjoy my vacation without worry, and sent me brief periodic updates just to let me know all was well. I would definitely recommend Kevin for anyone seeking a responsible, gentle, and friendly caretaker for their dog.

Kevin was lovely from the moment we met him. Very calm, friendly, and completely understanding of our dog's quirks and nuances. Our dog is pretty active and will play fetch for hours...Kevin ran with him and played fetch for literally an hour straight. We picked up our dog and he was happy and pooped. We'll definitely contact Kevin for any sitting needs in the future!!

Right away from the meet and greet, Kevin was friendly and knowledgeable about dogs which made me feel comfortable that my dog Kodee would be well cared for. Kodee came home tired from being exercised and very relaxed. What more could you ask for? We would recommend Kevin to anyone on Dogvacay and will use him again. Thanks Kevin!

We've got 2 rescue pups, both of which have their quirks, but our little guy tends to be more anxious and skittish... about ALL sorts of stuff. So, typically when we leave our pups with sitters or kenneling facilities, which we don't do often, the pups usually come back frightened or with a whole new set of bad habits. That was absolutely NOT the case with their stay at Kevin's. Even though it poured the entire weekend and they weren't able to go on any exhausting trail runs, both dogs came back to us tired, happy and incredibly relaxed. Kevin kept them entertained and especially gave our baby boy a lot of extra love and cuddles, which we could really see in the following days. It was like he was a whole new dog.

Kevin, we can't thank you enough for the updates, pictures and extra care with our two crazy little pups. M&N can't wait for their next visit!!
