About Adam

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
********* ABOUT ME *********
I've been hosting dogs through DogVacay for a few years now and it has been a tremendously rewarding experience. It has been a wonderful way for me to get some quality canine companionship during this brief period in my life when I have no pets of my own. Your furry children will be very comfortable in my North Tempe town-house, located in a quiet and safe community near Papago Park. It is a very convenient location, close to Sky Harbor Airport, Downtown Tempe, and Old Town Scottsdale. Many of my guests pick their dogs up on the way home from the airport, which is no more than 15 minutes away.

I work from my home office during the week, so your pooch will never be lonely. While I’ve had dogs and cats my entire life, I do not have any pets of my own right now (or roommates) - so your special children will get 100% of my attention! I have yet to have a guest that didn’t bond to me almost immediately…it’s like they can sense that I am an easy source of belly rubs and treats!

My experience hosting with DogVacay has been tremendous fun; I’ve had a blast with ALL of my guests! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have about my home, experience, or schedule.

Take your next vacation with peace of mind; knowing your pooch is safe, happy, and getting plenty of attention and playtime! Check out some video clips of happy guests at



• Visits to the dog-park and/or off-leash exercise
• Neighborhood walks – as many as required
• Rawhide chews & Milk-Bones (if allowed)
• Plenty of affection, attention, and playtime
• Basic obedience practice if desired/necessary (heel, sit/stay, etc.)
• Continue existing medical treatment and/or preventative care such as:
- Oral medications, injections,
- Ear/eye drops
- Coat/teeth brushing, ear cleaning

Please note: the activities above are tailored to fit each guest’s personality, breed, and limitations. For example, if you’re dog doesn’t like the dog park, there are private fenced-in areas nearby where we can go instead.



—> Please Note: Discount may not applied automatically, and may require a ‘custom quote’. Mention the qualifying coupon code with your reservation request. Additional fees for optional services or special accommodations are calculated for your review before finalizing your booking so there won’t be any surprises at the end of your stay.


I am very comfortable caring for those pups with ‘special needs’, and fancy myself a bit of an amateur trainer as well. Does your dog walk you instead of the other way around? I can help! I have experience caring for dogs with all kinds of medical conditions and behavioral problems, and am comfortable administering oral and/or injectable medications. I had a diabetic/handicapped cat for over 10 years, a Golden Retriever with a thyroid condition, a Labrador with terrible allergies, and more.

Over the years I’ve gained quite a lot of experience with what it takes to care for sick or disabled animals, and have been an active volunteer with several rescue organizations around the valley. Those experiences have provided opportunities to work with a variety of breeds and personalities, giving me the utmost confidence in my ability to make your fur babies comfortable and happy regardless of their circumstances.


• I am no longer hosting guests who are not housebroken. This is not meant to discourage owners with dogs that have an occasional random accident or incontinence due to old age or illness. This is meant to exclude dogs that require wee-wee pads or diapers, or just have not been taught to do their business outdoors.

• PLEASE BRING EXTRA FOOD when you drop-off your dog! It is always better to have more than enough in case plans change; enough for 2-3 extra days is ideal.

• 6PM CHECKOUT TIME - If you need to pickup your dog(s) after 6PM, I ask that your reservation includes that night. Drop-off anytime.

Adam was such a great host! My pup Sage had the best time with him while I was gone for almost a week. She got so much playtime there that she didn't want to leave! My baby got sick not even a week before I had to leave town but Adam took the best care of her and made sure she got all her meds and special diet and nursed her back to health. I will definitely be using Adam again for all my dog sitting needs in the future!
This was our first time leaving our dog with someone we don't really know, and it went great! Adam was awesome and sent us a ton of pictures and videos of our dog playing and having a good time. He came home exhausted and happy! We will 100% be using Adam, any time we go out of town!!
Adam was fantastic with Elly! He went above and beyond a normal sitter. I told him she has trouble walking on a leash, and he took Elly for so many walks to start teaching her. When I picked her up, he coached me a little. Adam even recommended the best collar for her and a great training book. Elly loved him, and she was so sad to leave! I will definitely be booking with Adam again!
