About Dan

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

I have always been around dogs from childhood on. I grew up in a dog friendly household. My sister is an ace vet. and I've learned a lot from her over the years.

I have done a lot of pet and house sitting recently and have been thanked for keeping a clean house as well as attentive pet care.

I also have a strong background in plant care and don't mind keeping an eye on your house plants and outdoor garden - in fact I enjoy it!

I am self-employed and work on the computer a lot, so I can keep myself occupied if your pet is napping. And if your beloved animal is not a napper, I have plenty of energy to give your pet a lot of walks and runs. I'm an active person myself and frequently go on adventures both near and afar and welcome canine companionship.

I have a 4 PM or later drop off (4-7 PM) and a 10 AM or earlier pick up (8-10 AM), or else doggy day care ($29) applies for one or both respective start/end days. If you need a drop off before 8 AM or a pick up later than 7 PM, I request that you just leave your dog for an additional night of boarding. In a complete and total bind, I will allow pick ups past 7 PM but it is $15 for every 0-59 minutes after 7 PM.

Dan always does a great job with my two pups. They run straight to his door whenever they are getting dropped off ready to have some fun.
bella was very happy with her week at dan's he arranged his schedule to accomodate a tight period of ours we would certainly reccomend dan esp for an older dog
Dan was absolutely awesome, he was great with izzy, I got updates n pictures and my boy really seemed happy when I picked him up so I know he was having a good time with Dan. Would totally recommend, and return.
Dan provided my energetic Cockapoo with nature walks, time in the garden and a gentle approach that he warmed up to immediately. My dog is a rescue dog with a history of fear of men. Dans manner instantly put my little guy at ease. A plus was Dans' son who provided energetic play and love.
Dan did daycare with my 11 month Standard Po who is not yet neutered. I was easily able to drop off and pick up as scheduled. "Klausey" got along with Dan's dog and son, had a few walks, and best of all, came home and slept. Dan snapped some pics of the day's activities and sent them so I could see my guy was happy and well. Positive experience...I will reserve with Dan again.
Dan was awesome, attentive, send me pictures each night he visited. He also was able to accommodate my last minute booking with a meet and greet!! Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
My dog Tibs enjoyed his stay with Dan. I got photo updates!
My dog was happy to return to see Dan, and Dan was helpful and accommodating. I would definitely use him again.
We had an urgent and last minute request. We had never used DogVacay or any dog sitter for that matter. Dan was Wonderful. He put our worries at ease with frequent pictures and updates about our sweet puppy! He was flexible with times, he gave our puppy all his medications he needed. We came home to happy dog and and a nice clean home. Thanks Dan!
Dan was so great! I would highly recommend him. He was very responsive, took great care of our dog Oz, and sent photo updates each day from their adventures around town.
Dan was super flexible and picked up our request very last minute. Even though our plans were a bit hectic, he was very easy going and happy to accommodate.

I loved the update we got from him while he was taking care of the pets which really put our minds at ease. We came home to happy pets - Thanks Dan!
Sandy had a great time and Dan was very helpful and flexible. So nice to know Sandy has a great place to stay when we are in PDX!
Dan always takes great care of our dogs!
Dan is just blocks away, and Chance always has a great time there. Dan's dog is a sweet older lady, who seems to get along great with Chance, and we have gotten some amazing photos of Chance from his stays with Dan.
Dan did a great job with our two dogs. We needed a sitter last minute on a holiday weekend. Dan was friendly, flexible, and communicated smoothly. We highly recommend him.
Bolt is a very friendly dog, but strong, exuberant and a bit of a handful. Dan took him on short notice, he had a nice place with a fenced yard, and Bolt came back happy.
Dan's right in our neighborhood and has a sweet older dog that seems to get along well with ours -- we also really appreciate his flexibility with a last-minute request.
Dan did a good job working with our dog's exercise requirements (he had surgery and had specific instructions for how much / what kind of exercise he could have) while dogsitting. It's great to have someone in the neighborhood that can watch our dog every once in a while!
Cindy Lou loved her time with Dan so much so, I had to put her on the leash to get her to come home with me! Dan was very responsive during the setup of the stay and provided text and photo updates throughout the whole stay. He took Lou on many fun adventures, rain and shine, we'll for sure call Dan again.
