About Dennis

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I own our home and have large yard in sunny Corte Madera, about 15 miles north of San Francisco. I previously owned a veterinary hospital and pet boarding facility, so working with dogs is a life long passion of mine. There will be daily walks, and lots of love in this house. Senior pets are welcome!!! I've had San Francisco (city) customers before, but mainly Marin County residents. Our three year old Border Collie, Scout, is an excellent host.

I also specialize in providing home care services for Senior dogs. My experience at the veterinary hospital has prepared me for understanding the needs of the owner and animal, and I have a special place in my heart for aged animals.

Dennis took great care of Maisy during our two week trip over the holidays. He sent us updates every few days. It was really nice to know that she was having a great time with the other dogs in his care!
My pup was well taken care of, and very happy at pick up!! Thanks Dennis!!
Wonderful people, would definitely drop Sam off with Dennis and his wife again!
Dennis was a fantastic host for our dog. Our dog is an amazing escape artist and he even did some work to escape-proof the fence in order to watch our dog. We're repeat customers!
As always, great.
As always, great.
My old dog ~ 14 yrs old ~ loved Dennis and his wife. They have a wonderful, large, outside porch that my dog enjoyed the majority of the time. He was very happy when I picked him up. He enjoyed their backyard as well. Very great place and Dennis and his wife are wonderful! I will be back.
Dennis is great! Made sure my doggies were well cared for while we were away.
Dennis' place was the perfect spot for our 10 year old Scooter to spend a few days while I was in the hospital. Plenty of play space, other older dogs to bond with and lots of personal attention. We would definitely board Scooter here again.
My first time using DogVacay and my experience could not have been better. Dennis is reliable, gentle and caring. Our dog Wolfie had a wonderful time.
My 15 yr old dog loves to go to Dennis' house! In fact, when I picked him up after his latest stay he said hello to me and then turned around and followed Dennis into the other room
Dennis was a wonderful pet sitter. This was the first time we had left our almost 6 month old puppy so we wanted to find an alternative to the dog boarding facilities that can house 80+ dogs during busy times. Dennis has his own dog and he was sitting for one other dog so our puppy had dogs to play with which we really liked. He came home tired but very happy. We will definitely have Dennis watch our lab again when we go away. We've already referred him to several friends!
Pepper had a great time with Dennis and has come back a happy dog!
Dennis was very responsive and caring for our pup! It looked like our cockapoo had a terrific time when we picked him up.
Dennis and his family are great - Peso loves every stay he has with them :)
Dennis was once again a superb host. Trigo is an older dog and we are always confident that Dennis is providing the best possible care and vigilance. Thanks Dennis!
Our dog Jasmine had a great time with Dennis. He sent us some pictures of her during her stay, she was having a lovely time! I would definitely leave her with him again.
simply great
We were at ease leaving Teddy with Dennis. Dennis has a nice fenced yard, and porch area. They also took Teddy on hikes. Dennis sent us a couple of pictures of Teddy while we were away, and we were relieved to know that he was getting so much love and attention while we were away.
Dennis, his lovely wife, and their resident border collie are all wonderful hosts. My young Golden Retriever is always happy to go play with his friends at what has become his home away from home.
Another fun stay for Coco with Dennis and Scout! I don't worry at all about Coco when she's with Dennis. She loves it there, loves spending the day with Scout, and comes home healthy and happy. Couldn't be happier.
Great as always.
This 11 day stay was the longest we have left our dog with anyone. Our trust in Dennis was completely validated when we came to pick up our very happy dog.
Dennis was great, very easy-going. Our dog was so excited to be there, he didn't even "say goodbye" and I liked that there was another friendly dog there to keep him company. We told our son that he was on a week-long "play date."
Great experience, will definitely book again!
Dennis was quick to respond, provided updates and Trigo enjoyed his stay! Thanks Dennis.
Holly had a great stay and came home tired (which was nice after the hours of traveling home). Thanks Dennis!
I have been leaving my 4 month old puppy with Dennis and Scout for daycare while I'm at work. She just loves it there, and is so happy to go, and so tired when she comes home. Dennis is a kind, skilled dog handler, and Scout is the "Camp Counselor" of dogs. Just a great place for my Izzy:)
Dogs are tired and happy -- a great combo to come home to, believe me. The photo which Dennis sent me was very cute -- the two of them snuggling together on a chair. The almost never snuggle together at home. Glad that Dennis provided a nice, fun place for them to vaycay.
Dennis is wonderful. I received daily updates and pictures and felt connected throughout Dixie's Vacay. It's obvious to humans and dogs alike that Dennis is a dog lover and considerate care-giver. A+
This was our second stay with Dennis and everything went great. We could tell our dog enjoyed her first stay as she was beyond excited to return to Dennis' house for the second visit. I appreciate the daily updates about how Harper is doing and can tell Dennis really enjoys taking great care of the dogs.
Coco spent over a week with Dennis and had a wonderful time. Dennis sent frequent updates as well as an adorable video which really reassured me that she was happy and well. I couldn't be happier with this experience. Thanks Dennis!
Dennis and his family are terrific! They took care of my rambunctious 1.5 year old pup Henry over the Christmas holiday and treated him like one of the family. He had a great time playing with the other dogs and seemed to really enjoy his "vacation" at Dennis's house. Highly recommend!
Dennis was terrific. We met up with him and his dog before booking Peso in Just to make sure we felt comfortable.

Peso stayed for 5 nights over the Christmas period and Dennis provided both video and photos of what he was doing.

Will definitely use him again!
As always, very accommodating and a great place for our dog's stay.
As always, home away from home for our dog.
Dennis took extraordinary care of our Australian Shepherd/Border Collie 6-year old and provided an ideal environment! Our dog, Leo, had stitches in his paw at the time; and Dennis was super conscientious about changing the bandage and monitoring his progress. Dennis is an inherent 'dog person', who deeply understands dogs and knows how to communicate with them in different circumstances. I can't recommend Dennis highly enough! Leo got the right amount of exercise, mental stimulation, affection and care! The experience for Leo and our family was terrific!
Dennis and his wife have a lovely home, enclosed yard, and delightful host dog. Coco had a great time with them and Dennis was responsive, easy to work with, and sweet with Coco.
Very comfortable home for our dog (and for our kids when they visited!). A great, personal home away from home.
