About Daniel

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pet friendly family who loves pets. I have a small dog "Eli" who loves to play and interact and we have two cats "Megan" and "Ernie" ( No claws ), I'm conveniently located close to both St. Louis counties and St. Charles counties off I-270 / I-70, just minutes from the airport. I have a 23 year old step-son who's autistic and loves to socialize and play with other animals. We have a fenced in back yard, never a cage and lots of Love to provide.

I was lucky to be raised in a household full of dogs as my grandmother raised, showed and was a breeder of show dogs her whole life, so I was exposed to animals since infancy. My love for animals continued as I volunteered for the Shamrock Pet Foundations, a no kill pet rescue in Louisville Kentucky, also fostering cats and dogs from the surrounding area.

Know your animal will be loved and cared for as if you were doing it yourself, and since I can provide 24/7 care, you can rest assured knowing your animal will be cared for, loved on, played with, and cuddled whenever he or she feels like it.

If you have any questions please send me a message!

Thanks Daniel

PAWsitively wonderful.
Dog EXPERT!! My boys did not socialized often with other dogs. Bengie was attacked by a Pit Bull and was afraid of large dogs. Daniel's knowledge of dogs helped my Boys become very social with other dogs and Bengie was playing with a large dog.(we didn't he would ever go near a large dog again) We were sent pictures daily. He even sent a small video showing how well they were doing. JoJo seemed sad he was leaving. I've never felt so comfortable leaving my most prized possessions in Daniels hands!! My boys took to Daniel like they had known him forever. I feel more comfortable leaving my boys with Daniel than my own family. It was truly a vacation tor them also!! We did a couple of "meet and greets" before Daniel and had a couple more scheduled but after, but after meeting, Daniel we knew this was the perfect place!! and canceled the rest. Daniel was the BEST!!! I give Daniel my HIGHEST RECCOMENDATION and will be making reservations with him again!!!!! Thank you Daniel for taking such wonderful care of my babies!!!

I really like going to Daniel's house. I have so much fun when I am there. His homemade treats are yummy too. Signed, HENRY
This was an awesome experience for me and Lil Buddy. Lil Buddy fit right in and has a new family in St Louis. Convenient, honest, easy, trusting just a great experiecne
We've used Daniel several times - from just overnight to a 10-day trip. He's awesome and our dog always enjoys his stay! Daniel has patience with our nervous pup, sends us photos while we're away and is very accommodating with our fluctuating schedule. Highly recommend!
Daniel was great! He is easy to get in touch with and so good with our puppy! We will definitely use Daniel again!
Daniel has watched our two fur babies twice now and has done a great job. We have no worries when he's watching them because we know they will have fun playing with the other dogs. We've had bad experiences using pet resorts in the past, and are so thankful that we found Daniel! We will be sure to book again for the next vacation!
Daniel did a great job watching our dog. He is very responsive and accommodating. He is a great host who I have no reservations recommending to anyone needing a pet sitter.
I'm so happy we found Daniel! We always used hotel like boarding for our girls. It was super stressful for us and even more for them. Taking them along with did not work as well. They would cry out loud if left alone in our room. Since we have Daniel to take care of them, we are enjoying our trips knowing that they are having a great time. When we get to Daniel's house they run to his legs. What a nice thing to see. Usually our dogs are super people shy ( especially the youngest one, Bella). She just runs to him and sit on his spot on his sofa... According to Daniel, they share it...
Love it!!
Daniel has watch our dogs on three separate occasions. At our 1st meet and greet it became apparent to me that he has a real love of animals. I know they are in good hands with him.
Daniel was a great caretaker of our 6-month old puppy. He seems knowledgeable about dogs and comfortable taking care of them. We would use him again.
As usual Maxie had a fantastic time at Daniel's and had fun with the dogs that were there. We have found a home away from home for her.
Daniel was extremely attentive to my senior dog, Rudi, who has some special needs. I would recommend him and will be using him again!
Daniel has a special love for dogs and responds promptly to requests. He's cared for my pooch many times and she's always excited to see him. It's great knowing she's in good hands!
Pearl loves when she goes over Daniel house. she even knows what days she is supposed to go. He is very flexible and I enjoy working with him as well.
Daniel did a wonderful job as usual. Antonio seems to return home years younger.
Daniel has been a pleasure and our three dogs don't even look back when they run in the door at his place. Daniel is very accommodating.
Daniel was fantastic!!! Antonio requires special care as he has severe food allergies and is almost 11 years old. Daniel provided him with home made treats and several friendly poodles to play with allowing him to return home with the friskiness of a dog half his age. My wife and I will definitely make Daniel our first choice for Antonio in the future!!!
My dog, Max, a chihuahua mix had a great time. Daniel let Max be Max. They played and had a great time. Max is exhausted. What is a better indication of a doggy play date that went well than a pooped pup at the end of the day? Would recommend Daniel! Max will be back.
Daniel did a great job for our little Yorkies. We would recommend him as a great vacay home.
Daniel was awesome! He is super nice and easy going; I felt comfortable from the moment I met with him. My dog was happy and exhausted when I picked him up. Daniel sent pictures and updates even though it was for one night! I will definitely be using him next time! Thank you so much!
Was thrilled about Links stay with Daniel and his family. Daniel made leaving my dog as easy as possible and was super flexible with dropping off picking up and whatever else Link needed. Will book with him again anytime I need a dog sitter
My pup Choco had a great time at Daniel's place, and was totally worn out when got home! Daniel was super nice and patient to me as well, I missed my Choco during my trip, picturesthat he sent me made me felt so happy! Thanks for all his help, I will definitely book with Daniel again!
We had a great experience with Daniel! From the first meeting, you could tell he loves dogs. He took great care of our Dixie and sent picture updates regularly. Pickup and drop off times were flexible and a breeze. It was a pleasure to leave our girl with someone so easy-going and kind.
Daniel was great with Chance. Helped him through a rough patch during the fireworks, as Chance is super skiddish around loud noises. Very thoughtful about our wishes concerning him. Will definitely use him again.
Barkley's stay with Daniel S was PAWSOME! I love the fact that Daniel, in an effort to maintain Barkley's routine, ask questions. Additionally, he periodically sent pictures and a video to mark Barkley's stay. He provided a warm and friendly environment. Not only do I recommend Daniel as an ideal host, I will definitely book with him again.
Daniel was an absolute pleasure to work with from our first visit for a meet an greet to when we picked Lily up after her 1 week stay. Daniel is a true animal lover and it shows in everything he does. He provided us with updates and pictures on a regular basis which was very comforting during our travels. We have already booked again for an upcoming trip and we know Lily will be in great hands and is looking forward to visiting again. We would highly recommend Daniel for any of your pet sitting needs.

Thanks again Daniel and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Jeff, Tammy & Lily:)
Daniel was a delight. We have a skittish rescue and a young puppy that is still learning. Daniel was able to win over our skittish dog in no time. And was so patient with our puppy who is still in training. This allowed us a sense of ease leaving our dogs with someone we knew was going to treat them as we do ourselves. He sent lots of great pictures and updates. Daniel was very flexible and accommodating. He will definitely be our first choice when we have to leave them again
Daniel did a great job with my girl, Lilah!! She visited Daniel and his pup Eli for day camp, and had a great time. Daniel sent me a few pictures so I could see my puppy was having fun, and then when I got her home she's just been "dog-tired" from all the walks and play time. I appreciate how flexible Daniel is, so I know that Lilah is taken care of when I have to work long hours. Daniel is clearly a dog lover, and we're so happy to have found him!
