About Rocky

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Petey's Fur Kids Boarding! I am excited to join DogVacay and be your fur baby's sitter and home away from home.

My wife and I are in our late 50's, retired and love dogs and all animals. We are both very active, I am an avid marathon runner and my wife is a Zumba fanatic, so we spend a few hours of our day on our hobbies, but the rest of our time is at home and we are happy to share it with your little loved ones. They can expect lots of attention, play time and walks in our quiet neighborhood. We have been dog owners our whole lives and have cared for dogs of all sizes from Yorkshire Terriers to German Shepards. Since we are retired, my wife and I spend about 2 months of the year traveling abroad, which is why we regrettably do not have a dog of our own now. We believe dogs are our best friends; they give to us so much, so in return they deserve to be surrounded by love and care 24/7. We have a safe home and a large yard that your dog is free to roam around in. Depending on your dog's needs, we can make arrangements accordingly. We understand how important your dog is to you, so we will do our very best to make sure they're well taken care of, happy and treated like they're a part of our family. Our 15 years-old cat live in garage and they won't come inside so your pet won't meet or see my cat at all.

Feel free to message if you have any questions!

Rocky was great with my two small dogs who have never stayed with anyone but family before. I was a little nervous leaving them but got updates from Rocky with photos a few times a day and saw how happy and well taken care of my dogs were. They adjusted fast to their new environment and I think they may have liked staying at Rockys home better than mine! Needless to say I will be using Rocky again in the future! He was also very accommodating with our late flight and let us pick our dogs up that night.
Sesame had a great time under the care of Rocky. He suffered some minor skin allergy before the stay. Rocky did everything we asked for and when we picked Sesame up, his allergy was gone. Rocky would also send us lots of photos and videos everyday, and seeing Sesame was doing very well was a great relief for me and my wife.
This was my first time using DogVacay and I have to say Rocky blew it out of the park for me! He was amazing and I know Peanut had a fantastic time!
This was also my first time leaving my puppy behind and it was for a month so I was nervous and upset about leaving him for so long. Rocky however, was very understanding and flexible. He made me feel very comfortable leaving Peanut and took Peanut in like he was one of his own! He answered any and all questions I had prior to and during Peanut's stay within 30 minutes of my sending it.

I appreciated the meet and greet prior to the boarding reservation. It allowed Peanut and Rocky to meet (at his home) and see if they would be a good fit for one another.

While I was away, he sent multiple pictures/videos of Peanut everyday and gave me regular updates on how he was doing. Big ups for this!

Overall, I think that Peanut and I both had an extremely positive experience with Rocky. Safe to say, I will definitely be requesting Rocku again in the future! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!
Our Jack Russel Terrier (Darshan) stayed almost a whole month with Rocky and his wife. By the photos and videos they sent me every day, I can tell he was VERY well cared for. He got to spend time outside everyday in the pleasant backyard, and lounge inside on a people bed with other four-legged friends. He was covered up on cold nights (just like we do). He got to play ball and tug-of-war with his human companions. When I picked him up, he looked happy and healthy. I liked knowing that he had people and other dogs to spend time with during our absence. When Darshan's food ran out, Rocky emailed me to inform me and kindly consented to buy more and have me pay him back on pick up.

Rocky and his wife are the BEST!! My dog Pilly spend a wonderful time in their home. Rocky sent me pictures and keep me updates of Pilly almost everyday. I am very lucky to find them taking care of Pilly.
Latte and Pudding had a great time with Rocky. Rocky sent me pictures and videos every day! My pups had a good run in Rocky's beautiful and spacious backyard everyday. I highly recommend Rocky. Five stars!
Rocky is very responsible and flexible. I received photo update everyday. He is also very flexible about drop off/pick up time. I'll definitely use his service again!
Rocky and his family were a great fit for our dog Muffin. There's always anxiety when leaving your precious dog with someone new. We were encouraged by the positive reviews and large number of repeat customers for Rocky, and we understand all the positive reviews after Muffin's 11-day stay.

Rocky sent multiple pictures (and even some videos) daily and let us know how Muffin was doing. After a couple of days of seeing Muffin look relaxed and happy, we totally relaxed ourselves and could enjoy our vacation not worrying about how he was doing,

He was able to play with other dogs while there, and came back to us relaxed and happy.

We now feel free to vacation at will knowing that we have a safe place to bring our dog. Thanks Rocky and family!
Highly Recommend for your pet!! Rocky took excellent care of both of my old dogs. He sent pictures with a note of how they were doing everyday and he was very accommodating to our needs. I will definitely book with him again. :)
From the perspective of our two furbabies (Kiva + Nikki), Rocky has excellent "presence". The dogs took an immediate liking to him, and did not feel uneasy under his care! :-)

Nikki (as a shy dog) can feel especially nervous with strangers, but I am surprised by how joyful and relaxed her eyes were in every photo! She won't give you that expression, just because you want it! Ha. I could tell that she was very well taken care of, and her body language communicated relaxation when I picked her up.

Kiva, comparatively, is a more social dog, yet he is known to have separation anxiety. I was worried that this Pomeranian could be troublesome to the Rocky family, ...but no such thing happened. He was surprisingly well-behaved and I'm sure that wasn't due to mere blind luck. He sometimes caused a barking ruckus at the groomer's! Gah.

So we thank you, the Rocky family. :-) Kiva and Nikki enjoyed their vacation!

There is no doubt that I will use this service again, instead of the vet's. (Nothing wrong with the latter, but it makes us feel MUCH better when the dogs see the host's place as a vacation home, instead of a "time-out".

Both dogs LOVED the individual attention they received from the Rocky family. This process has been worth it to us. :-)

We will be back!
We are so THRILLED with Rocky's service, that we'd recommend him to friends and family. For our 1st time using DogVacay, Rocky is a 5-star host who easily exceeds expectations.


Five days before a week-long fumigation and deep cleaning, my family and I were in an absolute disarray.

Instead of feeling rushed, Rock responded with kindness and understanding. He immediately took note of our stressful situation, and on his own initiative, he did whatever was necessary to work around our ever-changing schedule. Sometimes, this meant changing schedules at the last minute (we warned ahead of time that our days were unpredictable).

"Don't worry, we'll handle this." - Rocky

Music to my ears.

Amazing. For the customer service aspect, he deserves more than 5 stars! :-)
Rocky was an absolutely fantastic host! Coordinating drop-off and pick-up was easy. Rocky and I reviewed my pug's daily routine and after that I left him for a two week trip. Rocky sent daily updates of how my dog was doing, often with pictures of him playing, going out for a walk, or cuddling. He also messaged me with permission and questions on how to give him a bath. I swear that when I came to pick up my dog, he would have rather stayed with Rocky for more time! Rocky and his family are excellent hosts - I'd highly recommend him.
I had a great experience leaving my Shih Tzu with Rocky family during the Thanksgiving holiday. He sent several pictures and status messages, making us very comfortable and let us enjoying our trip.

Chico came back home very relaxed and happy, so I am definitely sure that Rocky becomes his official "second home". Glad to count on him, whenever we need!
Was great with our Fergie. Kept us up to date the entire time we were away. Will use again soon
I liked all the pictures I received while my dog was with Rocky. I would book my pet with him again.
Best Doggie Vacay ever!
I have two small Chihuahua's that Rocky and his family took care of over Thanksgiving weekend.
Rocky kept me informed that my puppies were OK he continued to send me pictures which was so fun to get while on vacation.
I am very appreciative to Rocky and his family of such loving care they gave to my dogs during their stay ❤️
Why would I look anywhere else?

It was a good experience.
Tiger had a fantastic day at Rocky's place. He was exhausted when got home. Rocky kept us posted by emailing us pictures. We feel so lucky to have found someone who would take care of Tiger like we do. Thank you Rocky! Highly recommended!!
Rocky was simply awesome! I needed help with our Luy at the last minute, and Rocky was immediately responsive and available for our dates. He allowed us late drop off and pick up (after 9pm) which was really useful given our airline flight schedule. In addition, once with Luy, Rocky sent the cutest pictures (and videos) of Luy throughout his 6 night stay, allowing me and my family to laugh and thoroughly long for our little guy. It was great! We would definitely have Luy stay with Rocky again, and we so appreciate his taking care of our little guy. Thank you, Rocky!
Rocky and his wife treat our dog peach very nice , keep 3 time per day to update her information . Peach is having fun and making new friends during her stay there. I am surprise peach and her bowls Even more cleaner than they are dropped off. Really considering couples ! I will definitely go with them for next time
My 2 dogs stayed with Rocky and his wife for a week, and it was just perfect! I got daily pictures and videos of their activities, which reassured me while I was traveling abroad. You can tell they are very good with dogs and have a great experience. They played, went hiking and seemed to have an overall great time. Just like a doggie Club Med! I even had the surprise that they made a new friend, although one of my dogs can be picky - to say the least :) This really proves to me how good they are with taking care of dogs. I would recommend Rocky to anyone, without hesitating. This couple is great! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you so much for being such great doggie hosts!
I feel very fortunate to have found Rocky and his wife. I was out of the country for 7+ days and it was extremely difficult to leave my 2 dogs behind.

Rocky did a great job making my dogs feel welcomed and getting them settled in. My Shiba Inu is not the easiest dog to care for and Rocky was able to without issue. In addition, Rocky is great with communicating and gave me updates through out the entire stay.

I will definitely bring my dogs back in the future!
My dog George enjoyed his day. I got frequent updates and had peace of mind. Thanks Rocky!
Rocky was a great host. We will definitely be bringing our shipoo Burbur back to him when we are in need of a host again.

When Burbur came back to us she was clean (as we left her) and acting herself. During her stay we got multiple updates about her per day. The updates (and pictures) confirmed that she was comfortable and behaving as she would at home.
Rocky and his wife were very warm and welcoming. We made the reservation for our dog, Fin, at the last minute, and were very glad to find Rocky available.

We were gone 2 nights, and Rocky did a very good job keeping in touch with us, and making us feel secure in knowing she was doing okay.

Although Fin seemed to have an upset stomach while she was there (she's a bit of a nervous dog in new situations/places), Rocky kept us in the loop and asked if there was anything else he could do to help her feel better. It was very kind. He even sent a follow up email a few days after we picked her up, to make sure she was feeling better!

Rocky was easy to communicate with, and flexible with pick up and drop off.
Very friendly! My 8 year old dachshund stayed with them for 4 days, and he's not exactly the type that get along with other dogs. But Rocky made it work! He was able to socialize my dog with other dog that was staying, and was given 2 to 3 email update with pictures about how he's doing. Very professional, nice roomy place for the dogs to stay. Will recommend to anyone :)
Pet Day Care Service

It was my first time using this website and I didn't know what to expect, but Rocky was very helpful and guided me through the process. He asked me a day ahead to confirm my drop off and pick up time. I believe the schedule for him is very flexible, I drop off fairly early in the morning and they were all prepared waiting for my pet to arrive. During the day, they periodically sent me pictures of my pet to keep me updated and my pet seems to be enjoying. I was a bit spectacle about this at first, but Rocky made me very safe and I would definitely recommend Rocky!
Rocky responded right away to our request and took our puppy Luna at the last minute. He was easy to communicate with and Luna stayed happily. I got many picture during the day and Luna was happy when we picked her up. Thanks so much Rocky!
We had such an incredible experience with Rocky and his wife! They had a warm, comfortable, clean, safe, and welcoming environment for our pup that included lots of space inside and outside for him to enjoy. One of the best things, though, was that Rocky was constantly in contact with us during our dog's stay, sending us emails with lots of photos to let us know how our pup was doing, what he was up to, and to reassure us that everything was ok. This was a HUGE relief because we knew our dog was happy and taken care of while we were away.
Our experience with Dog Vacay and Rocky was exactly what we needed. We wanted a home where our dog would be not just taken care of but loved as well. We booked just days in advance and Rocky was flexible with pick up/drop off times. We will definitely book with Rocky again and 100% recommend him to other pet parents!
Rocky and his wife were so quick to respond to my request, for which I was so thankful, being new to the area. They sent regular updates through pictures, which I really appreciated! Sugar cane back rested and calm. That's when I know that he received great care. Thanks, Rocky!
Rocky and his wife were great with our dog, Belle. The emails and pictures were very much appreciated during our time away. As hard as it was to leave our fur-baby, it is so comforting to know she was well-cared for while we were gone.
We've boarded our 2 little pooches in a number of boarding kennels around the Bay area and have also used a few petsitters while we have needed to go away. In each instance there have been pitfalls, not always big or major pitfalls, but enough to take the edge of the lovely feeling of a weekend away or holiday or complicate the night away through work commitments. We can honestly say that Rocky and his wife provided our beloved Max and Polly with care and attention we could have only dreamed about. We were so thrilled to receive the emails through the day with pics of Max and Polly's going about their day and actually found ourselves checking our phones over and over in anticipation of new photo's (so much better than a grainy web cam image where you can't even see your pet). Rocky and his wife have a genuine love for the pets they look after, you can just see it in the way they care for them. Our two looked so settled and happy when I went to collect them that I actually wondered at one point if they were going to come home with me. Thanks so much, we'll definitely be getting in touch when we go away again... no more kennels for us from now on!
Rocky took great care of Sheepie for a month while I was out of the country. He made sure to send pictures of my dog everyday, which was a great relief to me because I'm a very anxious dog-parent. Rocky was very accommodating to our needs, and frequently played with Sheepie even though he has a lot of energy! Rocky, in my opinion, is the best person you can book with.
Rocky was amazing! He takes such good care of our dog, and we received daily updates with photos. Rocky is now our go-to whenever we're on vacation.
Rocky was fantastic and took great care of Truffles. He sent me updates and pictures of Truffles multiple times everyday. He was prompt on all his replies and was super accommodating. They have a great backyard where Truffles enjoyed playing, along with daily walks.
Rocky did good care for both of my dogs. He took photo three times a day and dogs like him. Thank you for watching the dogs while we are away. It’s a comfort knowing that they will be looked after.
This was my first time utilizing DogVacay and I must admit, it was the best experience my dog and I ever had! Rocky was extremely nice and keep me informed, with pictures and videos. I looked forward to the many pictures and videos he sent, multiple times a day! I regret having to leave my dog, but with leaving her with Rocky, I don't feel as guilty, anymore. I will definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone! Rocky ROCKS!!!!
Rocky sent a lot of pictures of our pug, Bijou to reassure us she was well-taken care of. The care was well worth the price.
Caesar seemed very well cared for during his recent visit with Rocky. Good communication with Rocky re: later pick up due to delayed meeting, he was very accommodating. Very nice back yard for playtime! I'd ask Rocky again to care for Caesar again in a heartbeat.
Had a very good experience with Rocky taking care of our dog while we were on vacation. Nice house with large backyard for dog to play. Rocky always response to any questions very quickly. Sent multiple pictures of our dog during our vacation so we know our dog is in good hand. Highly recommend.
Great services. It was my first time, and I was hesitated at the beginning. But after talking to Rocky, and saw he handled my two dogs, it clears my doubts. Rocky is very good with dogs and he is very plexible. I got updated photos of the dogs everyday with a note about their being. Will come back again. Thank you.
Highly Recommend for your pet companion!
Rocky, opened his home for our Chocolate and must say!! it was a pleasure dealing with Rocky and knowing Chocolate was in a safe environment. He kept us updated with his progress on his stay and with daily pictures of his daily outings. I would definitely be using Rocky in our future vacations and will highly recommend him. Thank you Rocky for the ease of booking the reservation and opening your home to our love one.

Perez Family
My pup's daycare days at Rocky's have been fun for her and comforting for me. Rocky updates me throughout the day and is very flexible with scheduling. I appreciate his gentle care for my pup and will continue to reserve with him!
Rocky was Awesome!! I will definitely book with him again! He was very accommodating to everything Ella needed.
Rocky was great with our dog Kiki, and she can be an anxious little princess. He sent pictures every day and was flexible in allowing her to stay one more night if needed (we were on a road trip and not sure if we'd make it back on time). I would recommend Rocky to anyone looking for a dog sitter! Thank you, Rocky!
My dog had a great stay with Rocky! He was very accommodating to take care of my 6 month old puppy for 2 weeks. He sent me updates every day and took very good care of him. I couldn't pick him up until late the night we returned home and then our plane was delayed by nearly an hour, but he was very flexible and gracious. I would definitely have Rocky watch my dog again!
Rocky provided pictures of our little Holly. He got her to go outside and she even made a friend. I was comfortable to know she was in good hands. I will definitely use Rocky again.
Rocky did a wonderful job taking care of my two dogs while I was away. He sent me pictures of them everyday! He was very accommodating for drop-off and pick-up times and was very responsive to me for the entire duration of my dogs' stay at his home.

I recommend Rocky and I will definitely trust Rocky with my dogs for my next vacation.
Rocky and his wife, Sharon, are simply the best. Since this is the first time we had to put our dog, Coco, in the doggy boarding and in such a long period, total 18 days, we weren't sure how it would turn out. Rocky put our worries at ease by sending us daily photos and videos to show how happy Coco was. She was truly pampered - they let her sleep in their bed, lounge on their sofas. They also bathed her after the temperature got too high. I can't thank them enough and would definitely use them again.
We would love to leave our Tofu in the future also, Rocky did exceptional job keeping up posted how's our Tofu was doing every day !!
Rocky took great care of Sealy. He provided updates and photos. He was patient with me when I got stuck on work call and had to drop off a little later. Sealy is excited to come back next week for a longer stay.
Rocky was great!!! He constantly kept us updated by sending us photos and videos of Lulu. Our dog was well loved and taken care of, and we'll definitely use Rocky next time we go on vacation.
I was already on vacation when I had to find a new place for Sully to stay. I had left him with friends and they ended up not being able to keep him the whole time. I quickly got online to look for other accomodations and found DocVacay. Rocky and his wife were kind enough to accept Sully at the last minute.
They have been the best. They sent updates all the time to let me know how Sully was doing there, sent me videos and photos. They played with him and took him for walks. They treated Sully with all the love and care that I would have, even letting him sleep on the sofa!

I'm so happy with Rocky and his wife and would recommend anyone to leave their dog with them with full confidence that he/she will be treated lovingly and get the best care away from you!

Thanks Rocky!

PS I tried to leave 5 stars but the interface would not keep the setting.
Rocky was amazing! He took excellent care of our little Pomeranian. He sent daily pictures with summaries of how she was doing day and night. Really made our vacation much more relaxing to know she was being taken care of so well. Definitely recommend and will book again with him.

Rocky and his wife did an outstanding job with taco. It was my very first time boarding my pet and I was extremely nervous. But Rocky did everything and more on Taco's vacation. He even helped taco make friends which I thought was impossible (taco isn't friendly with other dogs) and also sent me pictures throughout the day! Rocky let taco sleep in his bed and gave him a lot of attention. I'm very satisfied with the love, attention, and care, Rocky and his wife gave to taco!!!
I'm so happy I chose Rocky and Sharon to care for my beloved Mochi. They seem like genuinely nice people who love animals. They sent videos and photos of her eating and playing, and that made me feel very secure.
Rocky and his wife were wonderful with my pets. They watched them for a full weekend and accommodated my early flight time to drop off my pets. Rocky sent me lots of videos and pictures of my dogs running and playing. It was their first time being boarded and I think my little dogs had a great time :)
Great and friendly sitter! My Kiki loved staying with Rocky and his wife. So glad they were able to take Kiki in last minute and even taught her some new tricks!!
Thanks Rocky's quick response and arrangement to my request. I was so happy to know they had a Yorkie before, since I have a Yorkie too.
Big big thanks to Rocky! Without them, I won't be able to focus on my work while I was away from the little ones. I'll definitely come back to them again.
Rocky and his wife are wonderful!!! We could not have asked for better sitters for our Daisy. They responded quickly to our meet and greet request and clearly took very good care of our pup while we were away!!! I could tell she was happy in the pictures and updates they sent us of her running, hiking, and enjoying the park. We look forward to using them again the next time we have to leave her behind!! Highly recommended!
Mia had the best time at Rocky's! Rocky and his family took such great care of her that we weren't sure she wanted to leave. From time spent in the park to just lounging in the backyard sun, I'd say any dog would enjoy a stay at Rocky's. We're so grateful to have found such a caring home for Mia while we traveled and I'd definitely book again with Rocky!
Rocky was fantastic! I had a last minute reservation and he and his wife were very accommodating. I had had a bad experience with a previous host so I was wary but Rocky made sure that my puppy was able to have a safe environment. He took him out for walks and sent frequent picture updates which helped me not to worry. His house and yard were very clean. I would definitely book again with him if I'm in the area!
