About Aaron

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Give your dog a vacation while you're on vacation with a stay in our home in Concord, CA, with our dog, Puckett. Our dog is small, and enjoys having other dogs take their vacations at his house.

I'm a freelance writer working from home, so I'm home all day to take care of your dog. I have years of experience taking care of friends' dogs for free, and will treat your dog as my own during its vacation.

Your dog will enjoy walks and lots of play time with our dog and family. We have a large back yard for your dog to play in. We also live near a dog park at Newhall Community Park if your dog needs extra exercise.

Your dog will be the only guest dog in our home during its stay. We only take in 1 dog guest at a time, and it must get along with our dog.

Crates are required for all dogs to sleep in at night. Please bring a crate for your dog to sleep in so it can have a comfortable spot to sleep at night and not roam our house and possibly chew our belongings or pee on the floor. Dogs will not sleep on our bed or in our bedrooms. They will sleep in their crate in the downstairs living room. If your dog has massive separation anxiety issues, please look elsewhere.

Also bring whatever your dog needs to be comfortable, including its bed, toys, treats and anything else.

We have a child in our home and therefore we don't accept aggressive breeds, and we don't accept medium or large dogs. We also don't accept dogs that bite or are aggressive toward our child or dog.

Drop off times can be between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., though exceptions can be made. Pickup times should be 24 hours after drop off, but no later than 8 p.m. I allow up to 4 hours extra in the pickup time, but anything beyond that will require a $30 late fee for pickup.

If you have any questions, or would like to meet, please send me a query.

As a reminder of DogVacay's policy, all payments must be made through DogVacay. I cannot accept cash. Payment through DogVacay allows your dog to be insured through its stay, along with having 24/7 access to its support team.

Note: at this time, I only offer sitting for dogs; I don’t currently accept cats. Thank you!

Aaron took great care of my Chloe and sent me photo and/or video of her every day. It was nice to find a homey setting for her where she got a lot of attention and a compatible dog in Aaron's dog Puckett.
Coby seemed to be well taken care of...would use them again.
Aaron and his family took great care of my dog and kept me up to date by posting pics frequently. It gave me great peace of mind and I really appreciated it. This was my first time using dogvacay.com and I will be booking with Aaron again!
