About Hector

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our kids love puppies. While we are not allowed to own a pup, we are able to care for yours as we have done for friends, neighbors and DogVacay members.

We don't have the largest home but we promise it is cozy, happy and loving for your little one.

Our children are calm and loving towards animals. We prefer puppies on the smaller side who can appreciate a fun day of playing, resting and a good movie with popcorn and puppy treats :)

We have lots of open area around the neighborhood for your pup to take walks and play in a safe backyard.

STEER CLEAR!!

SO disappointed w/ this Dogvacay host. Meet-&-greet with Hector went okay, but I was still hesitant to leave her with someone new -- especially someone with only 4 reviews, all from the same person -- but I was in a $ bind.

DROP-OFF / PICK-UP
At both agreed upon drop-off and pickup dates/times, I couldn't reach Hector right away. I texted to say I was on my way, then called but it went straight to voicemail. At drop off, he said he had run to the post office. At pickup, I had to wait for an answer to my texts. Both times I waited in my car for 15+ minutes for him to arrive.

NO UPDATES
As with all hosts, I asked that photo updates be kept to 1 per day but only received 1 during my entire 4 day trip.

LACK OF CARE
At pick-up, my dog was lethargic -- not at all her normal self -- and her gait was strange. She later woke us up and when we checked on her, we saw that her rump at the base of her tail was raw & bleeding. A 1:00AM pet hospital visit and $300 later, I was livid.

Called the host the next day & he said, "Well, she was chewing there the day you dropped her off." NO, SHE WAS NOT. "I'm not saying it's your fault..." YES, YOU ARE. "Well, I thought she was just hot -- that she was sweating." DOGS. DON'T. SWEAT.

Lack of knowledge about dogs, he didn't contact me to let me know there was an issue. I'd have been better off paying for my normal (more expensive) sitter. This cost more & at least she would've called at the 1st sign of trouble

Another great vacay for Lily! Hector and his kids give Lily so much love, it's like she's royalty when she visits. Hector continues to send updates throughout the weekend even after many visits, he and his family is great!
Another awesome stay at Hector's. Lilly always comes back happy. His kids even bathed her last time! I always know she's in good hands, getting lots of puppy love from his kids when she stays with Hector and his family. Thank you so much!
Lily loves staying with Hector and his kids. We always feel she is so well taken care of and loved while we are away!
Lily loved her stay with Hector and his two lovely kids. Their place was clean and Hector sent us pictures of lily being loved and played with. He also accepted the reservation on very short notice, which we really appreciated. We'll definitely use Hector and his great family again!
