About Derek

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
5 minutes from downtown Cincy! We have a large fully fenced-in backyard for the animals to run & play, and a spacious comfy house to hangout and chill! We have 10+ family members that live in a 5 mile radius, so only if an emergency were to occur, we have plenty of people to help out.

My house has a lot of space, and a large fenced in yard for Dogs to freely run around. We live in a small city that is safe and very convenient to almost everything in the Greater Cincinnati area! The house is comfortable, and we even have a gated front porch for the dogs to enjoy.

My sister lives with me and we have two dogs of our own. We have a 4 yr old border collie mix in the house, and a 17 yr old poodle/shizu mix, that I have had since I was in 3rd grade!

I work 9-5pm M-F, but I work 8 minutes from home, and routinely stop home at lunch to let the dogs out. My sister works 2 days a week and the other 5 days, she is home all day with the dogs, taking them to the park, on hikes, on walks, etc.

We enjoy dogs and will provide them with a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable stay.

We have a dog gate and a dog crate, if requested.

Another great stay, thanks Derek!
I signed up for the first time just two nights before Christmas and had a flight the following afternoon. I requested Derek at 10pm and he promptly replied within 15 min and took my 1 year old shar pei for 3 nights and four days over Christmas.
Derek was great with Kiwi! She stayed with Derek for two nights and Kiwi loved the attention from two dogs and two humans. Derek sent me multiple pictures each day and was very accessible throughout the whole process. Next time we're in the Cincinnati area, we'll definitely book with Derek again!
Another great stay with Derek!
Another great stay with Derek!
I felt very comfortable leaving my pup with Derek. He's on-the-ball, kind, professional, and clearly loves dogs.
I needed to find a good and reliable pet boarding host for my dog, and in short order. Derek was prompt with his responses and was easy to work with, from the initial info exchange, the daily informative pet updates, to the flexible pick up and drop off arrangements. My dog got along well with Bo and Sadie, and had an enjoyable stay. I felt comfortable the whole time and had a great customer experience.
Derek watched my dog over the holidays, so it's great that he was willing to watch him during a busy time for everyone. He is very quick to respond to messages and requests (usually 5-10 minute response time). One of my favorite things was that he sent me pictures of my dog every day so I knew that he was comfortable and enjoying himself. He even took him on walks! His house is nice and roomy with a nice fenced-in backyard. He has two dogs himself, both of which are friendly and got along with my dog (and my dog typically doesn't care for other dogs). All in all, I was very satisfied. Would repeat and would recommend.
Derek was great! He was very flexible when we needed to extend Nellie's stay with him for an extra day on Christmas. He was easy to communicate with and sent updates of how she was doing. We will definitely use him again! Nellie came home tired and happy!
Derek was great for my dog!! He was awesome and accommodating at setting up drop off and pick up. He made me feel comfortable with Jax being there, sending pictures and keeping me updated on my pup. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dog sitter!
Derek was amazing!!! My babies are big and they're cuddle bunnies and he let them sleep in bed with him. I also got the cutest photo updates every day. I will definitely use him again!
Another great stay with Derek. Thanks again!
This was our second time leaving our baby at Derek's house, and it won't be the last time! Lola came home so tired and slept for days! Thanks, Derek!
Derek has a warm and dog-friendly home. He kept our Lola overnight in his home. Lola came home tired and happy! Derek was very responsive and flexible on short notice! Lola seemed right at home when we dropped her off for her stay. We will be back!
Derek was great! He took great care of my sweet girl! I would let him keep her in a heart beat! Awesome guy! Very trustworthy!!
I was really happy with my pets 5 day stay with Derek.this was the 1st time bluemoon and I had ever been apart so I was a bit stressed from the beginning but after meeting Derek I was able to relax and I knew things were going to go was nice to see his nice sized back yard and his own 2 dogs it was easy to see he was going to have a great time.when I picked bluemoon up he was indeed playing and happy. I will not have a second thought when it comes to leaving bluemoon with Derek again and I recommend anybody to leave their pets at Derek's home.
Derek had a clean home and nice yard for watching my pup. His dogs were both friendly and got along great with mine. Pickup and drop-off went very smoothly and we had frequent communication throughout the stay. I would definitely use Derek again.
Cutter looked like he had a lot of fun during his stay with Derek. We would definitely recommend using Derek's services for anyone looking for a dog sitter in the area :)
