About Daniel

Want your dog to get plenty of exercise, attention and playtime? As our reviews show, we love having dogs to visit and make sure they get all three!

We live with our dog Beta in the dog-friendly Lower East Side. We all enjoy being outdoors and are lucky enough to live close to the East River park. My wife works from home so our visitors get lots of attention. And every weekend includes a visit to one of the local dog runs makes sure they get lots of playtime.

I have cared for dogs professionally before, have had 3 of my own. We're happy looking after young puppies to grumpy seniors - we love dogs! However, large, playful dogs & puppies can intimidate our pup a bit, so we can only look after dogs 30lbs or less.

We usually start off the day with a 6am walk, followed by a 7:30am 4mi run along the East River, or an hour in Tompkins Park at the dog run. If we go out, the dogs come out (weather/task permitting). The dog are walked again around 5:30, and again at 9:30, usually for 20-30 minutes.

Beta is a gentleman - very hospitable and calm with other dogs, even nippy puppies.

As always Jenny & Daniel are amazing hosts! They sent me frequent photos of Clifford & their dog Beta which I enjoyed seeing while on vacation. I always know Clifford is in good hands with them!!
Clifford had the best time (once again) with Daniel & Jenny. Despite the cold weather, Daniel & Jenny made sure Clifford stayed warm and had fun with Beta. They even let Clifford borrow a sweater to keep extra warm. When Clifford returned, he was sad because Beta was no longer around to play!!

Once again, Jenny and Dan were amazing. They treated Clifford like he was their own, even giving him turkey on Thanksgiving. Additionally, they were extremely accommodating with drop off and pick up. Clifford can't wait to come back!
We can't thank Jen, Dan, and Beta enough for making our little Oscar feel right at home. We got so many pictures of him going on walks, napping, and snuggled up in both their laps. We all know our own dog's individual quirks, but I love when someone gets Oscar's and they definitely did. Oscar had a great time and we did too knowing our pup was in such great hands.

Jen and Daniel were amazing with Lodie. We received constant pictures of lodie on walks, playing, and snoozing. He was taken very well care of and he was certainly sad to leave. Highly recommended.
Boo had a terrific visit with Dan, Jenny and Betta. Lots oc communication and great pics!
Daniel and his wife were great. We had a nice meeting beforehand to make sure his dog and Steve got along and we were updated with pictures the entire weekend. Steven was happy and well cared for.
Jenny & Daniel were just the best. This was my first experience with DogVacay.com, and I will definitely be coming back. Leaving your dog with somebody new can always be a little scary, but Jenny & Daniel truly made this a breeze! They met me near my apartment with their dog Beta, and we had about a 15-20 minute meet & greet. Throughout the time I was gone, they both texted me and emailed me amazing pictures of all the fun Clifford was having. At the end of my trip, they were extremely flexible with when/where I picked Clifford up. I can't wait to use them again!

Daniel and Jen take such great care of Daisy Duke! She loves to run and play with their dog Beta. She always comes home relaxed and refreshed from her dog vacay.
What can I say? I have never seen Teddy so excited to see Dan or Beta before! They certainly have left an impression on him, and I can;t think of a better host to trust with your dog than with Dan or Jenny! Lovely, lovely people...
Cannot say enough about Jenny and Dan watching our 6-month old puppy - everything was fabulous. This was a very last minute reservation due to plans with another sitter falling through, so we were on the verge of cancelling a trip. Dan and Jenny were super flexible in meeting with us and their pup to make sure everyone was comfortable, and literally took him the next morning. They sent us videos, texts, and pictures for the entirety of the trip and we came home to a happy and tired out pup. This was our first time leaving our puppy and what started as a very stressful situation ended up working out great for us AND our dog. Wonderful people and great sitters!

We could not be happier with the service Dan and Jenny provided in watching our dog for 8 nights. This was our first extended time away from ou dog and they both put as at ease from the very start. They provided daily updates and photos showing how much fun our dog was having (I think our pooch might have gotten more attention from them than she does from us on a normal work week!). Also, their dog Beta was very well behaved and seemed to get along great with ours. We plan on using them again for future dog-watching needs and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Dan & Jen are amazing "foster parents". I really can't write enough good things about them. They were very welcoming and open during the meet n' great and kept me updated on Pippa's progress all week with e-mails and tons of pictures (which I really appreciated). I felt totally at ease leaving my pup with them and their sweet dog, Beta. Pippa had such a great time that she was barely excited to see me when I came to pick her up!

They are true dog lovers :)

Dan, Jenny and their Dog Beta could not have been better hosts for my dog Dottie. They kept me updated with each day's activities through email and sent fabulous photos and videos of Dottie's stay with them. My dog is generally reticent, when I leave her with others. It made me feel really good to see her playing fetch or lounging on their couch. Dottie would not do either thing unless she was feeling really comfortable. Also, Jen and Dan were very accommodating to my drop-off and pick-up schedule. I was away attending to family matters and Dottie had a real vacation! We'll be back.

I had a great first experience with DogVacay, thanks to Daniel and Jen. They were accommodating from start to finish, and I appreciated that they cared about making sure that my dog Wellie had a great, fun-filled weekend. They sent daily emails with many pictures of Wellie, and their dog Beta is super cute and was clearly a great playmate. All around, I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog in Dan and Jen's care and would do it again in the future. -Lauren

I am almost afraid to write this positive review for fear that everyone will want to use these guys to care for their furry little friend and then no more time for us and our puppy. ;)

To be fair, it is important to let anyone who reads know that Jenny and Dan were beyond tremendous and gracious and just simply amazing.

Teddy got to go on long walks, have playtime with their amazing dog Beta, and more than that we receive Youtube videos & photos throughout the day to ease our minds and keep us updated.

I think our puppy is a better man because of them!

Dan and Jenny were amazing hosts for Bailey! They took him out for daily walks/runs, and also had Beta as a great playmate. I would definitely recommend them for any puppies or energetic dogs that really enjoy lots of fun and activities!
Dan and Jenny were very helpful, accommodative and took great care of my two girls!! Every day I received a status email telling me how they were doing and I was even provided pictures! I would highly recommend using their services...your pup will have a GREAT time!
