About Patrick

Of all the creatures on this earth, dogs have to be #1 on my list! Born and raised on a farm in central Missouri, I helped breed, raise, train, and care for hunting dogs. As a graduate of Animal Behavior College, I am also a certified trainer. I also commercially manufacture my own brand of hot sauce called Happy Dogs Hot Sauce. Yep, you guessed it, I LOVE DOGS!!
Seven years in the military, 25 years with mass transit in St Louis, (now retired from), musician, entrepreneur and avid dog lover, your pet WILL receive the best possible care. Large house, separate sleeping areas if needed, huge back yard, walks twice daily, (weather permitting) and play time with the ever so gentle Bardot, (the good looking one in the picture), my lovely wife, and myself. I am around most of the time, and if your pet likes rides, he/she can go with me (if you allow). I am a runner, and can run your dog also, at your request. Five minutes from the airport, 5 minutes to the closest vet, 10 minutes to the best 24/7 animal emergency room in the area. I look forward to caring for your dog/dogs!!! Please note, if you're picking up your pet after 5pm you WILL pay for an extra days stay. There is also an up charge for Holidays two days before to two days after of 50 percent. Late evening pickups WILL be charged for an extra day, in the amount of 25.00 per dog.

Patrick took my dog and took care of him while he was recuperating from an injury. His care was very appreciated.
Patrick was a great host to my Great Pyrenees! He was caring and took wonderful care of him. My dog had some skin issues that he cared for also! A great fenced yard plus he loves dogs! I will book another Dogvacay when we have a vacation!!!! Thank you again to Patrick and his wife!

Awesome, professional, and Waylon (my pup) had a blast!
Patrick took excellent care of Huckleberry! He was very accommodating about drop off and pick up times and sent pics of Huck playing in a kiddie pool. My pup had a had a great time and I was able to travel without worrying. Thanks Patrick!
Patrick is awesome, he is caring about my Maya .He is knowledgeable of Dog Behaviors and uses that to the benefits of Dogs and the proper caring. Thanks Patrick!
Patrick is a kind soul who took very good care of my dog who showed no anxiety about being left and must have immediately sensed he was in good hands.
Is the first time Maya goes and she was happy and at ease in Patrick House!
Molly and Bea had a great time with Patrick! I was so happy to leave them knowing they loved it there. They were both royally spoiled. Bea especially loved running around the large back yard with her new boxer buddy.
Always good!
Patrick was great. Obviously loves Dogs. Plenty of room for dogs to play. There were a couple of other dogs there while Wallace was staying and they all were having a great time. Will definately use again.
Our pet had a great time with Patrick. She is a large Alaskan Malamute and is a 18 month old puppy. We had a chance to meet Patrick ahead and get acquainted. He took very good care of her and sent us pictures and comments everyday. The kids were very happy and we were much satisfied to have left our pet under good hands. He has a nice backyard and 3 other pets, so it was a perfect group size. We'll certainly recommend and will also leverage his services in future.

It's difficult to find a good sitter...so thank God I found Patrick. My normally shy girl seemed to take an instant liking to him and his massive companion, Bardot. He's a great canine caretaker and he seems to know what a dog needs to be happy. He sent updates, pictures, and generally just made me feel like she was safe, happy, and well cared for. Top marks.

I was down in Texas two weeks ago and setup a Dog Vacay instead of my normal of putting her in the local kennel and couldn't be more pleased with the care that Raisin got while staying with Patrick. I think she got more personal care there and will use him again. Thank you Patrick.

Patrick and Rocky got along well immediately at their first meeting. Rocky had awesome accommodations (big backyard to run in and big couch to sleep on) and Patrick was willing to work with my unknown schedule--no confirmed pick up day and time since I did not know how many days I would be hospitalized after my surgery. Patrick was very understanding of my situation and I had no qualms leaving Rocky in his care then or in the future.

Patrick is always a great host! He has watched my boyfriend's Boxer multiple times along with my Jack Russell Terrier. He knows how to take care of the dog's individual needs, whether it's keeping certain dogs separate from each other, down to what are good toys for each dog and leashes that may help make walks easier. There is also a huge backyard for the dogs to roam around and have fun in. I definitely recommend Patrick!

He is great! Took great care of our dog and you can tell he really enjoys what he does. Wouldn't hesitate to have him take care of her again.
My 8 year old Bichon, Toby, felt right at home in Patrick's large, pet friendly home and enjoyed exploring Patrick's huge back yard. Patrick really understands dog behavior and is a kind and patient pet host. He responded to all inquiries promptly and made this a very positive experience for both Toby and me.

I travel a lot because of my work and I can do it only because I found the best person to take care of Sebas while i´m away.

I know he is very well taken care as if it´s stay with myself since everytime I drop him off, he is happy moving his tail because he will get to play with Bardot (Patrick´s dog).

Mya had a great time. I would recommend Pat for a great sitter.
Patrick as always taking very good care of Sebastian.
I appreciate Patrick for taking the time to spend time with my dog.
As always, Patrick and his wife treat Sebas like one of the family. Happy to find them!.
I´m very pleased with the way Patrick took care of Sebas.

I was out of town for 2 weeks and I was concerned that he will not be stressed. Patrick kept me updated with pictures and when I came back to pick up Sebas I notice he was very relaxed in a way it can only be if he had enough sleep and exercise.
I definitely recommend Patrick.

I have nothing but great things to say about the dog vacay experience with Pat G. First of all, the reservation was during the holidays when i thought it might have been too late to find an available reservation. Not only was Pat very accomidating to my timing, but also his price is one of the best around. He saved me well over $100 over the course of the stay.

My first impression when I arrived at Pat's house was his very large yard. I have used boarding locations that I found keep my pup in an aproximately 4ftx6ftx3ft cage most of the time. To know that Jack had an enormous yard to spread his legs made me feel very reassured. Additionaly, Pat watched multiple dogs, so I knew that Jack would have another dog to play with (and play he did).

Pat was also very familiar with dog habits and training. Jack had a bad habit of pulling while on walks and Pat suggested a lead face harness and I agreed. The harness is gentle and doesnt have that intimidating stigma that a muzzle may have. Better yet, no more pulling! Now my girlfriend can walk him without seperating her shoulder!

Near the end of the reservation, I had asked to schedule an additional day for sake of convenience. Pat didnt need to oblige, but again he was very accomodating and kindly did me the favor.

I have so much to be thankful for how the experience went, so I am probably missing something....but what I do know, I will definetly be reserving another stay for Jack with Pat. In fact, I will be doing that right now!

Patrick was very very nice, and patient. I had to drop her off on Christmas day, but he didn't mind at all. My puppy is not exactly the kind of "sit still" type, not easy to deal with, and I'm sure she caused troubles along the way, but he took great care of her, sent me pictures, kept me in the loop of how she was doing during the stay. Apparently she had a holiday play time with other dogs at his house. It was great to have Patrick watch over my pup, highly recommend, if you want to give you baby a sweet home for vacation!

Turbo and Havok had a wonderful time vacationing wit Patrick. He took them on daily walks and played ball and frisbee with them in his huge back yard. Patrick sent daily photo updates while we were gone so we would know our boys were doing fine. He also worked on basic training skills as well. When we go out of town again, we will definently try and use Patrick again.
