About Darin

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Caring owner of two Shelties, as well as a loving husband, Step-father and Grandfather.

My wife and I moved to the area from Illinois to be active grandparents and change our lives. Our vision, prior to moving, included me being at home and pursuing dog-care. I'm happy to say this vision has come to fruition, and there isn't anything else I'd rather do than take care of your precious family members while you're away.

Rest assured that your pup(s) will be in a kind and peaceful, uncaged environment. It's just the two of us (along with our dogs, Andy & Riley) in a 1850 sq ft home, with the entire first floor available for your pets comfort. Our fenced in back yard is spacious and well maintained. Plenty of room for running and playing. Andy and Riley LOVE playmates, and are very even-tempered dogs. All that the four of us ask is that your pet(s) be good natured, and house trained.

We require a "meet-n-greet", so our pups can mingle a bit to be sure we have a good match. We have a park a few blocks from our house to accommodate the meeting. This is where I'll be walking the dogs daily, so you can get a look at the area at the same time. If all goes well, we'll go back to our home and bring your pup(s) inside, making sure we're all comfortable before agreeing on the stay.

If the vibes are good, then all you have to do is look forward to the daily updates (with pics) I'll be sending your way, of your happy pup(s) while you're away.


I truly look forward to meeting you, and Riley & Andy's future playmates!

We left our dog, Lexi, with Darin for the fifth time. Why? Well, it's because Darin is awesome. We used to actually cancel trips because we didn't have anyone who could take care of Lexi while we were away. Then, I found DogVacay, and subsequently have anyone who could take care of Lexi while we were away. Then, I found DogVacay, and subsequently Darin. Every single one of his reviews was 5 out of 5 and, I wholeheartedly agree. I don't worry about Lexi at all while we're gone. I know she's getting everything she needs and, I believe she's actually enjoying herself too. Darin sends texts, pictures and, even an occasional video. Darin gives us peace of mind and, that is VERY important when you're leaving a valued family member in someone else's care.
