About Bruce

32 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog lover who watches several neighbors' dogs, some in their homes and some in my home - usually when they are out of town or when they are remodeling their homes etc.. Many of these families have known me for 35 - 40 years. They can all provide references for me. ( Some have known me since I was a young teenager and now I'm an old 58 year old !! )

My motto is that "We Take The Boredom Out Of Boarding". I usually walk each dog several times and play with them throughout the day until they are tired. Never a dull moment.

I am not bragging - but some of these "references" will tell you that when they bring their dog to me, it jumps out of the car and runs to my front door happily and that when they used to take them to a regular kennel, their dogs would not be happy ( like many dogs act when they go to the vet. ).

I have several bedrooms (5) and during the periods I'm out jogging or gone to the grocery store, I like to separate the dogs usually in kennel/crates or each in a bedroom etc.. It is for their safety. The good thing is, the bedrooms have old carpet that needs replaced, so if any dogs have an accident or chew - it will not hurt the flooring ! No matter how good all of our dogs are, there is always one troublemaker in the crowd, that's why I separate them. Better safe than sorry.

The day usually starts with breakfast (half of their day's feeding) and a walk around 8:00 a.m. - another walk around 1:00 p.m. - another walk around 4:30 p.m. - dinner at 6:00 p.m. (the rest of their daily feeding) and another walk at 7:00 p.m. - and a short outing before bed around 11:00 p.m.

We now offer to everyone - Uncle Bruce's "Double Dog Discount" :
whenever you leave two dogs at the same time, the second dog stays at half price ! ! ! $30.00/day for both dogs ! - (( With Minimum 3 Day Stay )) -

This was our first experience with leaving our dog with a DogVacay host, and it was definitely a great experience. It was very reassuring to know Bruce enjoyed caring for dogs so much. And he definitely went above and beyond to entice our picky eater to eat his dinner!

He was very good and gave me updates all the time. He was available when I needed him on short notice and late at night as well. Would highly recommend. He really cares about your dogs.
Bruce did an excellent job taking care of our dog! He was so knowledgeable about how to to introduce her to each of the dogs that he was taking care of. He creates packs to ensure that the dogs all get along. He gave her LOTS of exercise. I will definitely use Bruce again.
