About Brian

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have always loved dogs and have had them in my life for over 20 years.  About a year ago I adopted my latest dog, Penny, from my local animal shelter.  She likes other dogs and enjoys having a friend around to play with. Recently I adopted Emma a 12 week old puppy and the newest addition to my family she is a very sweet and loving puppy that doesn't let you have a minute once she wants your attention.

I'm home more than I'm gone so I have lots of time to devote to caring for, playing with and spoiling your dog(s).  I volunteer at my local animal shelter a couple of times a week helping to care for dogs and cats alike. 

For Penny and Emma's safety, only dog friendly dogs with up-to-date vaccines will be accepted.

Penny, Emma and I are in somerset n.j conveniently located off Easton Avenue (exit 10 off 287) and have a single family home with a medium yard for necessary walks.  We also have access to a large fenced area for off-lead playtime. 

Call today to schedule a meet and greet with us so you're ready for your next trip!

Bryan was very nice to cutie. She really had a good time during the stay. Bryan sent pictures from daily and kept us updated.
Brian, Penny, and Emma were AWESOME!!! They took very good care of our Knuckles for 10 days!! Brian was great. He sent me daily texts, pics, and updates. I'm really happy that Brian knows how to handle a bigger and very active dog like our Knuckles. He even gave Knuckles a bath and washed her bed before she went home. I can tell Knuckles had such a great time wit Brian, Penny, and Emma because when Knuckles came home she was EXHAUSTED. We definitely will have Knuckles stay with Brian again. THANKS BRIAN, PENNY, and EMMA :) !!!!
My dog Moose loved his 1st sleep over . Looks like he had fun because he was very tired when came home . Thank you Sheetal
Very good service
Brian was absolutely terrific with my dog! His home is perfectly set up to welcome dogs! He sent great pictures and was very accommodating with the drop off and pick up! I highly recommend Brain and will be scheduling another DogVacay very soon!
Brian was exactly what I needed in a host: he has no problem handling an 75lb dog; he kept me updated on my dog's health and mood; he got my dog exercise; he was easy to get in touch with. I was very much at ease with Brian's dog-sitting, which allowed me to enjoy my vacation, and I would recommend him to others.
I was skeptical initially leaving my dog with Brian because I had a bad experience using DogVacay before because of inexperience sitter. As soon as I saw Brian, I had the confidence that he is the man who can handle and take care of my boy, he was a great host and sent me pictures. Brian knows how to handle the situation and work up my boy. I would use him again and again for all my future needs :) Thanks again Brian for all your help..
Sasha will definitely be staying here again. She loves playing with other dogs and has a lot of energy, so playing all day with Penny and Emma was perfect. Brian did a great job, and Sasha came home smiling and ready for a long nap!
Our pup, Cairo, had a great time at Brian's. We were so happy to find someone caring to watch our puppy on short notice. Would definitely utilize Brian's services again if needed. Thanks Brian!
Brian was a wonderful host! My pup, Romeo, had a wonderful time. I would definitely book with Brian again seeing as he was very helpful answering any questions I had. Brian also took the time to get Romeo acquainted with his own dogs and another guest that was staying at the same time he was. I booked last minute and Brian was quick to response and so accommodating. Thank you so much!
Due to massive snow, I had to change my travel plans, and Brian was able to accommodate at every turn. Jaida has now had several stays at Brian's house with Penny and Emma, and she always comes home happy and worn out!! I can't recommend him enough!
Brian took care of my beagle-shepherd mix over Christmas and was a great host!
Brian is great. Very sweet with Jaida, and great at communicating with me.
Gracie loves going to Brian's house to hang out with Penny and Emma. I have needed Brian's services for several weekends in a row because of wedding season and he has happily taken my pup in. She comes home completely exhausted and sleeps for a good 2 days after spending the weekend at Brians!
Sunday always comes home exhausted from Brian/Penny's house. She loves the playtime and attention. This is the second time Brian has hosted her and I will continue to use him.
I was only slightly concerned leaving my dog with Brian because I had not used DogVacay before. Brian was a great host and sent me pictures with updates each day. When I dropped my dog off at first she wasn't getting along too well with the other dogs but when I picked her up they were the best of pals. Showing that Brian knows how to allow the dogs to interact and relax. I think we will have to set up play another play date if only so my dog can visit her new friends. :) Thanks again Brian.
