About Adam

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
********* ABOUT ME *********
I've been hosting dogs through DogVacay for a few years now and am having a blast doing it! 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.


After working as a DogVacay host for several years now, I’ve noticed some patterns that have required me to implement some stricter policies covering certain areas. A $25 refundable deposit will be added to a ‘custom quote’ when confirming reservations for all new guests. The deposit will be refunded via PayPal after your vacay UNLESS one of the following policies is breached:

• 3PM CHECKOUT TIME - It has become necessary to declare a specific cut-off time to discourage folks from picking up very late at night to avoid being charged for another day.

• INADEQUATE FOOD/SUPPLIES PROVIDED - I encourage all guests to bring extra food, medicine, or any consumables your dog may require. If it becomes necessary for me to go out and purchase additional food or essential supplies during the vacay, your deposit will be withheld, regardless of the cost of said items.

• INDOOR ACCIDENTS - Dogs in a new/strange environment can be prone to 'accidents', whether from anxiety or simply because they have been removed from their regular routine. An accident or two is no big deal; this is intended to cover expenses resulting from dogs who are not housebroken, and will choose to urinate in the house, in spite of unrestricted access to the outside area. Dogs that use 'wee-wee' pads, diapers, or any methods other than going outside are not considered housebroken.

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!
My pet was recovering a surgery when I dropper her at Adam's place. Adam was the perfect person to care for her. She came home so much stronger and revitalized. We are so grateful!!
