About Adam

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a graduate student at Northwestern University with a love for all dogs. I adopted my dog, Dakota 4 years ago and have been dogsitting through DogVacay for 2 years. I'm happy to accommodate breeds from large to small. My apartment is a large one bedroom so there is no shortage of space and your dog can expect lots of affection and play time :)

Dakota, is a total sweet heart. She's not territorial or aggressive at all and is largely indifferent to other dogs. We've never met a dog on a meet-and-greet nor had a doggie guest that she hasn't gotten along with.

I do live alone so it's worth mentioning that my normal M-F routine is a short walk in the morning (8am-ish), then I am usually at work from 9-5. In the evenings, I like to take a long walk after work, and a short walk before bed. I'm very close to the lakefront so Dakota and I go for a walk on the beach/park almost every evening.

My schedule is enough to keep my husky happy but I know that some dogs might need more supervision during the days so let me know if this is the case for your dog. My work is flexible so I can work from home if need be but might ask for a slightly higher rate if you require it.

I have had to do a lot of traveling over the past 2 months. I have had Adam take care of my dog Zero three times, and each time has been excellent. Zero returns to me a happy dog. Adam also sends updates and pictures periodically, which I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend him.

Adam was great with Tuff! He was flexible and kept us in the loop the whole time. We really appreciated his help and would recommend him to anyone we know!
Adam is great!
This was our second time leaving Mira with Adam, and again the experience was terrific. Adam and his dog Dakota are great hosts and always take wonderful care of Mira. Don't hesitate to book with him!
Adam was super helpful and flexible. We felt very comfortable leaving Wistu with him. He kept us posted about how Wistu was doing.We will definitely leave our dog with Adam again!
Adam was so awesome taking care of Koji. I appreciate him taking Koji for long walks and keeping him safe and rested. Dakota was a doll and Koji and her really liked each other. I would definitely recommend Adam to everybody. Koji and I think we found the best dogsitter. Thanks Adam!

The most important aspect is to know that when our doggy comes home, he can go back to being himself as fast as possible. When we've left our doggy with various other hosts, our dog would be dehydrated, anxious and it would take him several days to go back to his normal state, however, this is NOT the case when we leave our doggy with Adam & Dakota. They are a wonderful team and always treat our doggy like a part of their family! Adam communicates well via text & email and sends picture updates as well as any other relevant information. We love this amazing host and the care & affection that he demonstrates towards our doggy - he has truly become a part of our family!

Adam took great care of our greyhound, and his dog is extremely calm and friendly--- they got along very well. We'll definitely be getting in touch with Adam again next time we're going out of town.
Adam kept our brittany spaniel mix, Mira, for over a week while we traveled abroad. It was so difficult to leave her, but Adam's good nature and obvious care for the pets he hosts put us at ease. We were also glad that Mira would have a dog-friend in Adam's very mellow Husky, Dakota. Adam sent regular updates and pictures by e-mail while we were away to keep us posted on how Mira was doing, and this was very reassuring. In short, Adam was a terrific pet-sitter and we won't hesitate to leave Mira with him again should the need arise.

Adam is AMAZING. Extremely collaborative and friendly and in our case was even able to deal with some special needs our pup had because he was experiencing some spine issues.
I have worked with Adam a number of times. Sadie always comes home happy!
As always, Adam is simply the best. Payson loves staying with him and his pup Dakota. Thank you for caring so much about the dogs you board!
Adam is always fabulous! Other hosts might have poor attitudes or may not be willing to do anything that they normally do not do for their own dogs (like going for a walk longer than 10 minutes)....not Adam, he is open to our suggestions when it comes to caring for our doggy and sends us daily updates with how the day is going and what our doggy is up to or if there are any concerning aspects. We highly recommend this sincere and professional host!

Adam and Dakota were wonderful sitters for our Golden Retriever, Chloe. Adam made sure to send us pictures daily, and it was great seeing her have so much fun with them. From romping at the dog beach to relaxing on their sofa, they made Chloe feel right at home. I don't think she wanted to leave, and was depressed for the first few days from missing her new friends. Would highly recommend them for caring for your dog, and would use them again in the future!

Adam & Dakota were great! Our doggy did not come home all exhausted after being in an uncomfortable environment or harassed by a larger dog. Our doggy appeared relaxed and most importantly, acted like his usual self! Thanks to Adam & Dakota for doing an excellent job taking care of our canine. Definitely recommend this host to anyone who is looking for a save environment, sweet co-host - husky Dakota, and a trustworthy person to work with.

Always wonderful. This is at least my 5th or so time having Adam watch Payson and he always does a fantastic job.
We are returning customers because we really like Adam & his lovable husky, Dakota. He takes good care of our doggy and what is especially noticeable, is that our doggy did not come home bleeding or anxious because he wasn't attacked by the owner's dog. Owner's dog is much larger, but our little doggy does not find her threatening and that is absolutely wonderful! Adam takes and sends you fun pictures and communicates well with the owners!

Adam & Dakota have earned a five star review! Adam was very sincere and welcomed our questions and care taking specifications for our doggy! Even though Dakota, the husky, is much bigger, she was a gracious hostess and did not try to start a fight, did not try to eat our doggy and did not show any aggression that dogs typically display when another dog is introduced to the home of the host. We were apprehensive at first about Dakota's size, but Adam has a beautiful relationship with her and she listens to him. We definitely recommend Adan & Dakota as your future hosts! If you're looking for someone who sincerely cares about your doggy while in his care, a pleasant person to build a professional relationship with, someone who will text you with pics of your dog while you're away, someone who will take your doggy on a decent walk, then you must contact Adam right away and schedule a meet-n-greet with him! Not only will you not regret it, but you will actually feel confident and safe to leave your dog with Adam and Dakota!

Repeat customer. Adam does a great job!
I left Sadie with Adam over the weekend. Adam was easy to work with. Quick to respond and flexible for drop-off/pick-up times. Sadie came home very happy!

I would recommend Adam to any dog owners out there and will work with him again if schedules permit.
