About Craig

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a active and fit mid 50's male with a 16 year old daughter that adores dogs. I have been a dog owner for 30 years and we are looking to provide good care of your pet until we are ready for a new family member.

I am a home owner with a nice secured yard in a very quite and safe neighborhood with a good sized park right across the street and a huge (11 square kilometers-second largest urban park in Canada) space within walking distance and numerous off leash areas. Your companion would be treated as a family pet in our home and we want your pet to be happy and comfortable. We will provide your dog with the same care and attention as they get at home and we will follow your instructions on how you want your pet cared for carefully.

Our home is 2200 square feet and I have a good sized secured back yard if your dog is use to having a yard. We will provide your pet with walks or exercise at least three times a day even in inclement weather if so desired. We are use to all the maybe not so great joys of having a furry companion in our home (excess fur, free face washes and such) and even if your dog has some not so great habits with a heads up from you we are more than willing to host your companion.

Special request that you or your dog require are no problem and we would love to have your furry companion at our home.

My dog has a few challenges - Craig was able to manage her just fine! I was very grateful.
I really don't like giving bad reviews, but I really did not have a great experience. I think that communication was the greatest problem. I admit that at one point I missed a call from Craig as I'm staying in someone else's house, but I received no updates for the dogs until I requested one, mid stay. I also received no messages via e-mail. When I went to pick up the dogs, at the arranged time, there was no one at home and the dogs were going crazy because they could see us waiting at the door. When Craig finally arrived, none of the dog's things were packed up, the dog bag holder that I asked not be taken off the leash had a piece missing and one of my dog's paws was bleeding. Later, I also discovered that one of the dog's tags was missing. When I called, Craig explained that it had broken off during one of the walks. I think that I was faced with too many things all at once, so although each thing is small, they added up to a larger feeling of disappointment. The dog's paw is fine now and they are happy to be home.
Craig and his daughter were wonderful and our pup tucker had a great time with them. They live right across the street from a park which was an added bonus. He only got to stay the one night but looks forward to a longer stay in the future. Craig was super flexible and easy to deal with. Would definitely recommend!
I could tell my Emma had a great time with Craig, when I picked her up, she was leaning out of my arms to give him goodbye kisses! She got a good long walk, too, and slept like a little log!
Craig really saved us last minute by watching our dogs. Our one dog is quite anxious when we are away but Craig was amazing with them. He sent me photos of the pups while we were away and always text when I was missing the pups. I would highly recommend Craig and we will definitely be reserving with him again! Thanks again Craig!
I was drawn to Craig's bio and he certainly lived up to my high expectations.

From our meet + greet through to the end of my boys' 6 night stay, Craig was professional, responsible and clearly a dog lover.

My dogs were very well taken care of, had a wonderful time (they were in no hurry to leave) and I will definitely be contacting Craig the next time I need need dog sitter. I recommend him with complete confidence.
This was the first time I had used dogvacay, l usually take my dog to a boarding kennel. I could not be more happy with the excellent care my dog received with Craig. He was so kind and caring with her. She had lots of walks and fun. He kept me updated with texts, photos and even videos of her having the best time. I was a little worried that she would not want to come home with me, as she was enjoying her stay so much. Cannot thank him enough. Highly recommend Craig and will certainly be calling on him again.
Jerry was ill when we left him with Craig. He was very well taken care of with medications and all. he was a much happier pup when we picked him up. Craig took him for lots of walks
Took my Doberman to Sam and Craig for 1week. We had never taken him to a sitter before so we're a little nervous. They did a great job, our baby was super happy there and came back exhausted from his many walks and fun over there. Would definitely take him back!
I was thrilled to find such a loving and caring home for Annie to stay and a place where she was treated like one of the family. Craig made sure she got lots of exercise, and felt safe and secure. Annie is normally afraid of most men but she warmed up to him and they quickly became friends. Annie is a anxious dog and doesn't normally relax in unknown environments, I knew this was the place for her when she laid down on the floor within 10 minutes of arriving... Thanks Craig and family for making me feel at ease and Annie thanks you for making her feel at home... We will definitely rebook another home stay.
