About Edward

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a semi retired, TV cameraman. I have always loved animals since I was a kid and have a special love for dogs. I have been taking care of dogs in my home for neighbors, family, friends and clients from DogVacay.

I enjoy walking and playing with dogs.
I give all dogs plenty of TLC. Doggies are allowed in the house and are free to go outside into the yard. Dogs are kept in the house at night. I am very safety and security minded so your pooch is safe and secure all the time. There is a 24 hr Vet wright down the street if needed.

I have a medium size 4 bedroom, 2 story home with a medium size, safe and gated yard, enough room for playing and running around. Walks are included with visits.

Ed was great with our dog Felix. He sent us updates and pictures throughout our trip. He was completely flexible with pick up and drop off times and was very welcoming and loving to Felix. We will definitely take him back in our next trip.
We have a surrender that has serious anxiety issues and I was very worried to leave him for a 7 day trip. Upon looking through tons of sitter profiles and their reviews I decided to try Ed. My deciding factor was that Ed does not have pets of his own and he sits up to 2 pets at a time leaving him free to actually take care of my dog. Others, have kids, several pets of their own and they sit up to 3-4 pets at a time, to me that sounds way too hectic.
Ed is very nice, easy to talk to and I love that he wanted to meet Teddy prior to our trip. Teddy warmed up to him right away. Ed allowed teddy to roam around the house and sleep on his bed which teddy loves. His house is very welcoming, clean and in a nice neighborhood for dog walking.
During our trip Ed texted pictures and updates which I looked forward to because I missed my dog.
When we brought teddy home, we were all stunned because Teddy missed Ed. We couldn't believe it. He usually cuddles up with us to watch tv but he wouldn't. He sat by the door for 2 days looking for Ed.
Finding Ed was a huge score for us. He's very nice, loves dogs and is very flexible with his schedule.
My fiance and I went away to get married. Everyone that could have watched our dogs was going to be at the wedding. We had never used a service like this before. Ed was extremely flexible and quick to respond to messages. He was loving with the dogs and you could tell he was a dog person. He sent us pictures throughout their stay and the dogs seemed just as happy and energetic when we picked them up as they did when we dropped them off. I recommend Ed and this site and will definitely look into using them again in the future.
Great first experience for daycare :)
Edward was very sweet to Sandy. Nice and friendly environment!
Outstanding !!!
Ed was a nice guy and we were very happy with the care he provided our older dog. He was very accommodating to all our requests.
Ed was a GREAT host. My dog "Bucky" really took well to him, and when I picked him up, Bucky looked, and was in great spirits.
The house environment and yard was very nice for a dog stay.
I will definitely use Ed again, and highly recommend him to anyone else. Thank you again Ed.
We were very happy using DogVacay. Ed did a great job and our dog Cassie enjoyed her stay. He also updated us through text with an occassional picture of Cassie letting us know she was doing well. We would be happy to use him again.
This was a last minute reservation and Edward was extremely understanding and accommodating. Our pet Sophie was comfortable with Edward right away. I stayed for about 30 minutes and I felt comfortable leaving her with Edward for the weekend. A good sized yard for her to enjoy. He was very loving with her.
This was my first experience with Dog Vacay, and Ed was great! He watched our Dalmatian, Lilly, for 5 days while we were out of town. He provided me updates by text, showing photos of Lilly so we knew she was still ok. He even took a great photo of her and framed it for us. Overall, I would highly recommend Ed!

We have a 3 yr old Boxer who is shy & knows a good person when she meets somebody. We had a meet & greet with Ed, who was very friendly and understanding of Lily's special needs. Lily the moment she meet Ed was waging her tail. I felt very comfortable leaving my baby with Ed. We were gone 7 days, Lily had a better vacation than we had. She was very well taken care of. Ed let Lily sleep with him at night. (Which Lily does with me), he gave her Medicine as we described. When we arrived to pick her up she acted liked she wanted to stay. Ed has a very friendly house for dogs. You can tell that Ed really loves dogs. When we picked up Lily, Ed had two 8 x 10 pictures in frames of Lily to give us. Which we have hung in my office. My next vacation Ed will be the Man I call. I can't thank him enough for what wonderful, loving care he gave my Lily. I know Ed was also very fond of Lily himself.
Edward took such great care of Sammy. He made Sammy feel right at home by letting him on the bed and couch! It was so nice to know Sammy was in good hands while we were away. I will call Edward again when we need him. Thanks Edward!
We didn't know what to expect, having never used DogVacay before, but we were pleasantly surprised by the experience. Edward S had a great setup for Rex, allowing him easy access to the outdoors. Rex looked amazing and happy when we picked him up. It was obvious Edward S had given him a lot of love, attention and care. Also, Edward S was always available when we checked in to see how Rex was doing. He and Rex became great pals, and I'm sure
Edward was sorry to see him go. This was so much better than placing Rex in a kennel. We feel very fortunate to have found this service!
We left our two dogs (large lab and small chi mix) with Edward for a 3-day weekend. My dogs have never stayed away from home before. They either go with us or stay at home with a neighbor. So I was very anxious to leave them. When we met Edward it was evident right away that he is a dog lover. He took such great care of them. He sent us pictures and let us know how they were doing each day. When we picked them up I think we were happier to see them than they were to see us!
Ed did an excellent job! He was very nice and flexible with our schedule. We had to drop him off 3 hours early and picked him up much sooner then expected and neither were a problem. My little dog is a handful and if he could handle my dog there should be no problems with others. My dog had a smile on his face coming out the door. Definitely recommend!
