About David

***I also do cat boarding/visits, please inquire for more information!***

Have to leave town for a few days and can't find a sitter or place to board? Look no further as I offer both boarding and sitting services. If you choose to board in my home, all pups will have a safe and fun environment to relax and play. There will be plenty of toys to chew and 4 different futon/sofas to sleep on!

I have a 7 year mixed pup (adopted from a humane society) that loves other dogs and will surely keep your pooch busy.

Additionally, if your puppy is cat friendly, I have three cool cats (two strays and an adoptee from the LASPCA) that will cuddle with your pup. Otherwise, I can keep them separated

I have an enclosed, medium-sized backyard for your puppy to roam around if he/she chooses. Rest assured, your pup WILL NEVER be left in the backyard unsupervised. Furthermore, I live less than a mile from the Mississippi River Trail (near Algiers Point), where I will take your dog on walks.

On to my experience:
I worked for two years as an Adoption Counselor back in California at the East Bay SPCA and about a year at a boarding facility in NOLA (Canine Connection); I am more than competent with administering medications/shots, interpreting behavior, handling, and taking care of pups of all ages/sizes/breeds.

Just like my puppy, your pup is special and will be treated like family by my wife and I. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions/comments/concerns. Thanks!

Another great stay for Jake! We feel like he is with family with David and Sunny.
David was very sweet and attentive to Pierre, and sent me plenty of photos while I was on the road!
David was very accommodating on short notice. We were nervous leaving Louis with new people but David sent pictures and messages on Louis's progress so it worked out well.
Once again david is the man! He was able to take my dog the same day my flight was leaving! He set plenty of pictures and my dog had lots of friends to play with. This guy should get your business if you are ever in need of a sitter!
We have used David twice now, and our dog loves spending time at his house! Would highly recommend :-D
As usual, I am a very satisfied customer. David has sent me some of the best ever pictures I have of my dog. He's totally happy on dog vacay. He gets lots of play time.
Very friendly and accommodating on a short notice booking I had to make. Great communication with daily pictures, could easily tell that my pooches were getting exercise and walked daily. Will likely use him again!
Our dog LOVES spending time at David's! Thank you for another wonderful stay!
Great Vacay for all again! We had no worries knowing that Jake was in great hands with David and Sunny.
David Nguyen was, as usual, a friendly, caring, and communicative host to my dog! I really appreciate the daily photo updates.
David did great! He sent me pictures every day of my dog playing with the other dogs and she looked very happy. I will definately be using him again next time i leave town!
Hi guys! I just realized that I had reviewed this but somehow I must not have sent it properly - many apologies!!

David is a fantastic caretaker for your pet - We have one child and our dog Vito so we are super concerned when we leave him with sitters - We always take him wherever we go and get a sitter in the city we visit - that way he is close by - if you live or visit the beautiful city of New Orleans - book David!!
David Nguyen was a wonderful dog host, as usual. Eliot's always so happy after he's been there. David sent pictures every day. I recommend him highly.
We're repeat guests with David - he's great!!
David was great! He was so easy to work with when we had to adjust pick up or drop off times. He sent us cute pictures each day so we could see that our furry children were having fun! We will without a doubt take them back to David when we return to New Orleans.
David and his wife, Sunny, did a great job with our little dog. Our dog was recovering from a broken leg and required special attention to keep his activity level low. This was handled well.
David was great! He was very flexible with drop off and pick up. Bella had a great time and was exhausted when she came home. David sent us photo and video updates to let us know all was well. I would definitely use David again.
David and Sunnie and their resident doggie, Chibi were so welcoming to our dog, Loki. Loki is a very playful dude and Chibi was able to play with him and wear him out so much that he voluntarily got in his own kennel, a rare occurrence!

David was very accommodating with drop/off pick up times. He also sent tons of photo and video updates, which let us know Loki was well taken care of. Their house has a dog friendly playroom room where the dogs can wrestle and rest. Loki spent time in the yard and went on walks too!

Thanks again for taking such good care of him. I know he would love to see Chibi again. He has been tired all day! :)

I would recommend David and Sunnie without reservation.
Excellent experience! I didn't worry about my dog at all, partly because David's house had such a welcoming feel and partly because he sent me several photos every day of my dog being walked and hanging out with other doggy pals. Highly recommended!
David was amazing! He is easy going on drop off and pick up times. We arranged a meeting before the reservation and that made me me so much more comfortable. He sent daily updates with photos and even a video. When we arrived to pick her up, my pup seemed to not want to leave, which is a great sign! We'll definitely be a repeat customer!!
David is wonderful with animals. I just got my dog home and he's sulking because he wants to go back and have more fun! Eliot is a big, bouncy boy (60-pound pit mix), and David really kept up with him. Great job.
David answered my last minute request quickly and helped me out of a jam. Shep had a great time and was well taken care of. I highly recommend him!
David and Sunnie were wonderful hosts to my little dog, Ryan! Their home is located on the Westbank and there seems to be plenty of space and a large yard.

Ryan stayed for 3 days and every day they sent me a pic of Ryan and a little update how he was doing (which every animal-parent loves to get!) and assured me that he was behaving.

I will definitely use them again!
David watched my dog Coetzee for two weeks while I was away in Boston, what was supposed to be a one week trip. David was extremely understanding about my having to extend my stay (both times). He took several pictures of Coetzee and sent them to me while I away, it was fun to see what he was up to. By the looks of it he had a great time. I should mention also that Coetzee seemed much calmer when I returned than he does after a stay at the kennel. Will definitely be dealing with David in the future. Thank you!
Once again Jake had a wonderful time with David, Sunnie and Chibi. Jake was so excited when I drove up to their house to drop him off. They made him very comfortable and we were so relaxed on our trip knowing that he was in good hands. They kept us updated with pictures and videos of their walks and play time. Thank you again for being such great hosts!
I will definitely leave my dog with David again. Based on the many wonderful pictures and videos he sent, she seemed to have had a wonderful time. David was very prompt in responding, and very flexible, working around my schedule.
David and Sunny helped make our vacation even more enjoyable. We knew Jake was in a safe and caring home during his stay. We loved receiving pictures and updates on Jake's vacation playing with Chibi. He came home happy and lovable just as we left him.
David took care of our two dogs for a week. They both can handful at times, but he did an excellent job! One of our dogs, Shadow, has diabetes. David was very comfortable with insulin shots and measuring blood sugar. He sent us updates every day with photos and videos. Both dogs had a great time at David's house! I definitely recommend him as a sitter.
David is a pro. My dog George has been enjoying his time with David. David always gives me updates and is always on time. I can't recommend David enough! Thanks man!
David was easy to make arrangements with, and kept in touch with us during our dog's stay with texts and pictures. That really eased our minds, and told us her vacation was as fun as ours! We were glad she was given plenty of walks and playtime. A great experience!
