About Dane

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Dane and I am an animal lover! My house and heart have always been open to many animals through the years, I am a very experienced walker and sitter here in the Houston area for over 3 years now. I love all breeds and types of personalities of pups I care for. I have a large house with plenty of pet friendly areas inside and out that your little or big ones can come play, have fun, relax, and just be one of the crew having a great time with me.

About this sitter:
I have always been a animal lover =) Ever since I was little and we had our first pup Mitsy a Rat/Fox Terrier mix I understood the bonds and friendships made with animals. As our animal kingdom grew in the house getting all types of animals, fish, lizards, cats, rats, ferrets, and even a horse for a short while...I learned from being around so many amazing animals how special and awesome caring for them can be.

Dane did a good job, bella seemed happy when I picked her up. He updated me once a day on how bella was doing through picture.
Horrible experience. This was my first time using this website because my lab is only 4mths old. I had a impromptu business trip pop up and needed extra help. I dropped Palmer off in the morning before my flight, and did not hear from Dane for nearly 11hrs. After SEVERAL attempts throughout the day with phone calls, emails, social media direct messages, I resorted to calling Dog Vacay to get their assistance in reaching him. After he returned my call (11+hrs later) he informs me he had not received my email (sent the night before) regarding instructions for Palmer. WHAT?!....So instead of trying to reach out to me to let me know he had not received an email, he guessed the amount to feed him, and assumed how many times to let him out. Along with several other things on the instructional list.

Palmer did not spend one night here, because I had my girlfriend drive from out of town to pick him up.

If you care about your pet, do not use Dane.
Unfortunately, I am very dissatisfied with our recent visit. First, I was a little nervous at the fact that Dane never initiating sending us messages about the dogs. We were the ones asking him how they are doing and if they are adjusting well. I would have liked more update with them. Second, I had specifically asked Dane NOT to walk our dogs cause I didn't want them outside and I know they aren't great walkers. However, he sent us one set of pictures and they were ONLY of them on a leash walking out in some field. We received no pictures of them playing, eating, sleeping, or having fun. Third, when our friend picked up our dogs (she also had Dane dogsit her dog at the same time), she was told that he wouldn't be home until 5:30 pm. When she arrived right before 6 to pick up all three dogs, Dane told her that if she had some a few more minutes later, we would have had to keep them there overnight for an extra night. Not very accommodating. All of our dogs were very hesitant of staying at Dane's place when we tried to leave, which we have never seen them do before. Lastly, when I got my dogs back, I discovered that they BOTH had fleas. I suspect they caught something while he was walking them in the fields. We have used dogvacay before with other sitters and have never an issue with anyone else. I'm sad to have to write this type of review (as I have never done so for anyone before), but I feel that based on our experience, this is a sitter that I will never use again.
