About Seth

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***We ONLY dogsit HYPOALLERGENIC dogs.*** See below for a list of common hypoallergenic dogs.

***I work from home most days of the week. I may go into the office once or twice per week, so if your dog will be staying with us for a longer period of time he/she must be able to go 8 hours without being taken out***

My wife and I have been taking care of dogs most of our lives and we are passionate dog lovers who will stop anyone to say hi to their dog!

I grew up with dogs and have been in the dog sitting business for more than 10 years. I also volunteer for Lucky Dogs Animal Rescue by performing home visits to make sure an adopter's home is appropriate for a new dog.

I have been exposed to all breeds and personalities, including special needs, most medical, and nearly all behavioral issues.

We care for dogs as if they are our own. We go on long walks around the neighborhood. Your dog(s) can sleep anywhere except in our bed.

In terms of overnight accommodations, we live in a 2,200 sq foot home on a quiet dead-end street and we accept dogs that are less than 80 lbs.

There is a huge park near our house and so your dog(s) will get a lot of exercise and playtime.

Most common hypoallergenic dogs:
*Bichon Frise
*Coton de Tulear
*Most Terriers
*Shih Tzu

Please visit the American Kennel Club website for a more complete listing of hypoallergenic dogs.

Seth was SUPER flexible and very responsive to my emails/texts. Highly Recommend! Stella
Seth is fantastic! Very knowledgeable and kind. My dog sometimes has issues with men, but with Seth it was like they were best friends! I also had some issues with my apartment and Seth was very helpful. The best part is that Seth just genuinely loves dogs and will make you feel very comfortable leaving your pup for a few days. I will be absolutely using him again! Thanks again Seth!
Seth was fantastic -- I highly recommend!
Great experience with a relatively short-notice request (4 days). He took great care of my dog and communicated regularly with me.
Seth is really good about responding to DogVacay requests and texts, so I often rely on him for last minute visits. I appreciate that he lets me know ASAP if he's available. He's one of the first dog walkers I call when I need one because he's responsible and my dogs are always happy when he's been over.
Seth was a fantastic host! He was soooo accommodating to my crazy schedule with a pleasant personality. He kept me updated with pictures and texts and even found another sitter for me when I realized I wouldn't be able to pick my dog up at the time we originally agreed upon. I would definitely recommend Seth and would use him again in a heartbeat.
Seth and his wife were great dog sitters for my yorkie Grizz. This was my first time leaving Grizz with someone I didn't know but Seth was great during our meet and greet asking a lot of questions about Grizz and his habits. By the time I left the meet and greet, I was super comfortable with leaving Grizz. During Grizz's stay, Seth sent me pictures of Grizz which was nice. Seth and his wife were flexible with me picking up Grizz (I was traveling out of the country and had a late returning flight so they let Grizz stay an extra night). I would definitely use Seth and his wife again.
Seth and Marnina stepped in after our dog did not get along well with a dominant dog at another host's home. We are grateful that they did (and that DogVacay helped to arrange his move to their care). They were fantastic with Harry, helped him calm down and get back to a normal routine, while being sure that he was really OK and with nothing more serious going on. Seth really kept us updated on his wellbeing and happiness and was very flexible and helpful in arranging the pick up and drop off. There is no question that our dog will be staying with them again!
Seth and Marnina were amazing-- Seth was very communicative, and we got pictures and updates of our pup every day! They made sure that their place would be comfortable for our dog, and he looked so happy and calm when we came to get him!
Seth recently took care of my 4 year old poodle/bischon mix, Rooney, while I spent the day visiting with friends in Silver Spring. He did a fantastic job! Right from the moment he and Rooney met I knew everything would go great, because Seth got down and approached him at his level, rather than reaching down at him (which for most dogs who come from a shelter is aggressive and scary). Rooney was immediately comfortable. Seth fed him, played with him, took him on two walks, and texted me a picture halfway through the day to let me know what a great time Rooney was having. Next time I am back in Silver Spring, I will definitely use him again! And I would heartily recommend his services to others!
Seth and his fiance were fantastic to work with. This was our first time using the dog vacay service and we're delighted to say we would use this couple again and again! They asked all the right questions + plenty we didn't think about. They made sure he was comfortable and well-adjusted, asked for vet info, how he interacts with others, and how he likes to sleep!

They also kept us in the loop all weekend and were very responsive via text if we just wanted to see what they were up to. We got a ton of cute pics over the weekend we were gone. The area has plenty of other pups to play with and they seemed to have kept him busy - he slept all day when we got him back! They're also totally flexible which is nice when you're away and can be delayed on a flight or because of traffic. Definitely recommend.
Seth and Marnina are laid back, super friendly, and definitely "dog people." They were also really flexible about scheduling: I had a last minute change of plans, and Marnina happily adjusted her schedule to accommodate. I highly recommend them and will absolutely be counting on them to watch my dogs in the future.
Seth and his fiance took great care of our dog and kept us updated with photos throughout our trip. We'll definitely be using their services again.
Kobe had a blast and Seth gave lots of updates on how he was doing! Will definitely recommend!!
Seth did such a great job taking care of my baby. I know I will use him as long as he's in the area. He was so great about asking appropriate questions to better understand my dog and was so flexible with drop off and pick up times!!!
Seth was really great with a last minute reservation. He kept me updated on Lila's stay with texts which definitely made me worry less. He even remembered to ask for her vet info. Overall Lila and I were very pleased with her stay with Seth and his fiancé.
