Hi! My name is Rob and I love working with dogs! Dogs have always been an important part of my life. I have studied with CATCH Dog Training Academy and have volunteered at dog rescues.

I live in a pet-friendly, 3 level home, with my wife, Michelle, dog, Dexter, 2 cats, Petey and Frank, and a few reptiles in tanks. My house has a fenced-in/locked backyard. There are sidewalks throughout the neighborhood for walks, and we are just a few blocks from the Cliveden Historical Site/Park. I have 3 large dog crates and the ability to separate dogs or block off rooms/areas of the house, if necessary. My 2 cats have their own room, and are not allowed free-roam downstairs when guests are here. I permit pets on my furniture if given your permission.

Dexter is a high-energy, EXTREMELY friendly young guy, who gets very excited about meeting new dogs and humans.
Dexter is trained to sit, stay, lay down, stand, give paw, and high five. He is a very affectionate and loyal dog.

A typical day with Dexter begins with breakfast and a walk, then plenty of indoor/outdoor playtime with toys and tug of war. Everyone is taken outside for potty breaks every 1-1.5 hrs.
We have plenty of places for napping. After dinner, it's back out for another walk. By 8 pm we head downstairs to watch TV and snuggle until bedtime.

We offer, with your permission, homemade peanut butter and banana "Wookiee Cookies", frozen fruit/berry and yogurt treats, and peanut butter oat treats. We also have an assortment of toys, including Kong tug toys, ropes, bones, and tennis balls.
I encourage all guests to bring any of their favorite toys, bed, blanket and/or pillow. These items help relieve any separation anxiety that may occur. I also ask that guests bring their own food/water bowls, as this will make your pup more comfortable eating in a new place.

Thank you for your interest in Rob's Doggie B&B. I look forward to caring for your pup while you're away.

I am also available for one on one training and structured walking classes. Please contact me with any training needs you may have, I'd be happy to help!

Rob is amazing! His attentiveness and knowledge to and of dogs is so refreshing. It's great to see that he goes the extra steps to make sure all dogs are vaccinated, safe, loved and get along with each other. Wrigley (my black lab) had an amazing time and made some new puppy friends along the way. Definitely would recommend!

It was our first time EVER boarding our dog and I could not have asked for a more perfect experience! The meet and greet before hand made both my husband and I reassured that Emma would get along great with not only Dexter (the residing dog) but with Rob too! Immediately after meeting them we could tell that Dexter is definitely a dog's dog... he loves to play and showed Emma around the house while we sat with Rob who is absolutely committed to making sure your pup is well taken care of.

We got plenty of updates during her stay and when she came home she was actually bummed to be away. Don't get me wrong she was excited to see us but she was sad she didn't get to play with Rob and Dexter and all her other new dog friends. We actually went out to Petco after we picked her up from Rob's and picked out some treats and a new toy identical to the one she played with at Rob's house (a tug of war toy) and as she was moping on the couch we opened up and she perked up IMMEDIATELY prancing around with it and getting us to play with it.

We just got her home and we already have a second booking with Rob's Doggie B&B in a week and I know Emma is going to be so excited to go back! We HIGHLY recommend Rob and his little family :)

This was our first time using DogVacay and we had a great experience with Rob! Due to a last minute change, we needed someone to watch our dog Levon for 6 days while we went out of state. Rob could not have been more accommodating with the last-minute request. We met for a meet-and-greet within a few days and it really gave us some peace of mind. Levon got along great with Dexter and Rob gave us a thorough tour of his house and answered all the questions we had. You can tell Rob really loves dogs and cares about what he does. Throughout Levon's stay, we were sent a ton of video and photo updates which we really appreciated! We will absolutely reach out to Rob again to watch Levon. I know Levon can't wait to get back with his buddies!

This was my first Dog Vacay experience, and Rob was fantastic. My dog Tanner couldn't wait to go play with the other dogs, and Rob was professional all the way. I feel better knowing that my pup has a home-away-from-home if our family needs to travel. Thanks, Rob!

Rob was such a huge help taking my small, senior dog over the Thanksgiving holiday. He was attentive to all of her needs, and I felt more than confident leaving my pup in the care of someone who loves dogs so clearly and completely. When I was faced with car trouble and potentially another night away from home, Rob offered to take care of my dog for another night. He seriously went above and beyond, and I'm so grateful for him!

If I could give Rob 10 stars I would. He was absolutely fantastic! We left our high energy dog with him for a day and a half and Rob sent us 18 photos and 2 videos! This really made me and my wife feel like Rob really cared about us and our pup.


I can't say enough about how great Rob was. Very professional and obviously cares deeply about caring for dogs. I will recommend him to all my dogs owning friends and will gladly use him again.

After a weekend stay and soon after a 12 day stay with Rob, Keaton is hooked! He loves to come over and play with Dexter and others. This level of socialization and group play has been fantastic for Keaton. He has learned to customize his play to fit his playmate, whether it's Dexter or puppies.

Fred was adopted from animal control just 4 weeks ago, and we were worried about his ability to get along with other dogs. As we walked Fred, we noticed how excited he was to see other dogs. Rob was so helpful and knowledgable. He helped us understand the way our dog reacted, which was very positive, with the other dogs at Rob's.. Fred was missing dog company, and after his stay he was happy and confident. The movies were lovely. I highly recommend Rob's Doggie B and B.

Rob was very friendly and easy to work with. He took great care of our dog while we traveled.
Rob is very detailed and really spent time making Zoey comfortable when we arrived. Also, he is very flexible - we were running very late and he was fine with our last minute reservation for an extra night. He is very tuned in to the animals and the pictures he sent let us know that Zoey was having a fine time. She came home clean and tired so we know she had lots of fun.

Rob was great. It was Harper's first time staying with him, but he was very thorough and accommodating! Will definitely be back!
Best Doggie Daycare! Rob is an incredible dog sitter for my 2 puppies. They receive plenty of love & attention in his care on top of the essential socialization they need during these formative months. He walks and feeds them, cleans their ears (even bathed them!), and they have plenty of playtime and nap time along with his dog and the other pups there at a given time. My girls enjoy being there (My puppies are so happy & satisfied when I pick them up each day) and it feels like I'm dropping them off with family. It's invaluable to find people who provide great service, who work with you, are professional plus flexible, and who love your pups as you do. I'm so happy I found the best dog sitter!

We are repeat guests at Rob's- we were thinking of a day out in the country to enjoy the autumn and of course the big question "What do we do with the dog?"-- Rob does day sitting as well as overnights! What a wonderful perk to having such a great sitter for our dog. Love Rob, his wife and his resident play pal- Dexter! Our dog literally jumps out of the car and knows exactly which house is "his."

Rob and his wife are outstanding hosts. We love getting pictures and updates. We are repeat guests and can't rave enough about our experiences with Rob and his wonderful care of dog.
Another amazing stay. Having a fantastic, reliable, trusted dog sitter has given our family great flexibility for mini breaks and long days.
Rob and his wife are amazing hosts. We made our first booking with them earlier this year. Their resident dog Dexter is fun and our fellow loves having a companion dog for his visits. Five stars all the way.
Rob is amazing host! My dog adores his resident pup; Dexter too. Highly reccomend.
Rob was fantastic with our dog Gracie. You can tell from the moment you meet him that his is an absolute dog lover and makes you feel immediately that your dog is in safe hands. Gracie had an amazing time with Dexter and all their friends and came home to sleep for two days straight. We will be back Rob!

This has been by far the best doggie vacay my dog, Rio, has ever had! The host, Rob, was amazing and spent a lot of quality time with Rio. Rio also got to meet other friendly/playful dogs during his stay. The host sent me a lot of videos and pictures and Rio looked very happy in all of them. Rio cannot wait to go back and see Rob, his dog, Dexter, and the other friends Rio made during his vacay.

My Milo is a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix, 23 lbs, but don't EVER tell him he's little. He can totally run with the big boys (and has beat Rob's dog in tug of war at least once, HAH!) - but his inner Chihuahua comes out sometimes and he also needs to sit on top of a human and get some lovin'. Rob's place offers the opportunity for Milo to get exercise, play/run with the big boys, and get that 'top of human' lovin' he needs sometimes. I trust Rob, and know he has Milo's best interests in mind. Awesome awesome, host.

We left our two dogs, Lucy and Francis, with Rob for two weeks while we got married and went on our honeymoon. We were nervous because Francis had never been left before and were nervous because he had a fear of other dogs from having a bad experience at the dog park.

However, Rob knew exactly how to handle our two and within a day, Francis had come out of his shell and was playing with the other dogs - we couldn't believe it! Rob sent us tons of photos and videos of Lucy and Francis and by the end of their stay, Francis was best friends with Rob's dog Dexter.

Rob is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and we are pretty sure our dogs like being at Rob's more than they like living with us. We already have their next stay booked.

Rob took such great care of our dog Chubbs over the weekend! We had an overall fantastic experience with him. Very friendly and professional/organized and his love for dogs was very clear. He sent us lots of pictures and videos of Chubbs having a great time. We will definitely be reaching out to Rob again in the future and we highly recommend him!

We had a fantastic experience with Rob, end to end. Rob was friendly, knew what he was doing, our dog loved him from the first 'meet and greet'. He delivered on everything he told us- our dog had lots of walks, lots of TLC and lots of company and supervision. Rob sent us pics and videos throughout and we felt connected with the whole experience. So happy we chose Rob to care for our dog.

I've used Rob on a number of occasions just this summer. He is extremely reliable and attentive to my dog. He is also very thorough, which I truly appreciate. I would definitely recommend Rob to other dog owners.
Rob was really organized and friendly. Our dog was really happy! Lots of photos and videos to show for it! Plus, a special treat to take home. Thanks Rob!
I would give Rob ten stars, if I could! Cody had a wonderful experience. Rob is caring and responsible and, most importantly, absolutely loves dogs! We loved the twice-a-day updates of photos and videos that showed Cody having a really good time with the other pups. Cody is almost two years old and came home tired and happy - just as he should. Thanks, Rob, for taking such good care of our doggie!

Rob is AWESOME! I needed a safe and fun place for my guy for about four days and Rob went above and beyond to make sure that Pluto had a great stay. Rob also made sure to send me plenty of videos and photos to keep me up to date, so I was well-assured that Pluto was having a great time. I would DEFINITELY recommend Rob to others and will be using his services again in the future.

I could not be more pleased! My doggie Lucy was definitely nervous but Rob was amazing with her. We got regular updates on how she was doing (and when I say regular I mean multiple times per day with a written update, pics and even videos!!) I felt incredibly comfortable with the situation and would recommend Rob in a heartbeat. Truly a great experience.

Rob was a great pet sitter. He was sensitive to my dog's personality, and my dog had a great stay. Rob is a good dog trainer, and so was able to manage the various personalities in his care. I would recommend Rob as a caring and loving host for your pet.

I can't say thanks enough to Rob. He is absolutely wonderful. He took excellent care of Hanna and keep me posted with tons of pictures and video. I highly recommend him...and I will keep booking him anytime I am out of time. 5 stars are really deserved. Giuliana

Great experience with Rob's Doggie B&B. Love the updates, pictures and videos of my puppy while I was away on vacation. I would highly recommend Rob's Doggie B&B. I will definitely be using Rob's services in the near future.
We cannot rave enough about Rob and his care of our dog. He kept us informed and sent notes and pictures many times each day. His home is very pet friendly and the resident dog Dexter is a charmer! Our dog was walked each day and allowed lots of outside time- Rob is committed to his passion of becoming a dog trainer and handles dogs extremely well. We were so comfortable and assured that our dog was in great hands during his stay with Rob. Highly recommend!

I knew that Riley had a great time at Rob's Doggie B&B through all the updates and pictures Rob sent to me while I was away. The excellent communication and knowing that my dog was safe and having fun with his new friends was one less thing to worry about while traveling.

Rob is very thorough during the meet and greet and makes himself available to answer any questions. His house is clean and his dog, Dexter, is super friendly and playful.

I fully intend to be a repeat customer.

This was our first time leaving our baby girl Pearl and the experience was great! Rob and his wife Melissa took such amazing care of Pearl. They followed her feeding schedule to a tee and she clearly had so much fun playing with Dexter.
They also stuck with our method of puppy training which made it so much easier. At our meet and greet Rob took the time to understand Pearls personality, her training, her feeding, and her likes and dislikes. All very important when leaving your precious fur baby.
While in Robs care we got updates and pictures and were confident she was having a great time. Upon pick up Rob had all her stuff organized and ready to go, Pearl was eager to give hugs and kisses which tells us a lot about Rob. It was obviously a great experience all around. Rob is genuine in his love and care of dogs and we will definitely be using him again in the future!
Thanks Rob, Melissa, & Dexter for sharing ur home and your hearts!

Rob did a fantastic job in making sure Alex was taken care of. He provided me a daily report of how Alex was doing along with pictures to assure that he was in good hands. My husband and I was so glad we came across his profile as our previous sitter fell through at the last minute. We had to go out of town for business and needed a sitter fast. We got the chance to meet Rob and Dexter (his dog). The moment we met, we knew we found a winner. Needless to say, Rob will be Alex's sitter from this day on.

After recently moving to PA my husband and I found ourselves in a pinch last weekend trying to find a person to watch our two dogs Abby and Cooper. The meet and greet went very well with Rob and he was able to accommodate our needs last minute. He kept us updated regularly and sent lots of pictures which helped us feel good knowing our dogs were well taken care of while we were away. Rob will now be our "go to" in the future for our dogs lodging, and I can feel confident knowing they will get plenty of exercise and love!
