About Wil

34 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there, my name is Wil.

I am a 34-year old living in Englewood, CO. I offer day and night supervised care of your dog(s). I work from home so everyone gets lots of love and attention.

I have a large, safe, and completely fenced in backyard for the dogs to play, stretch, and do their business.

I prefer mild mannered and friendly dogs, energy is OK, aggressiveness, dominance, or destructiveness is not.

Your pet must be good with other dogs and be 110% housebroken.

All areas of my home are open to your pet including couches and beds.

I would like a meet and greet with all owners and dogs (if possible).

Please bring your dog's bed, leash, toys, treats, food, and bowls, anything to make them feel at home and comfortable.

Please provide instructions for food, bathroom, and general care.

We look forward to meeting you.

Wil, Wrigley, and Riley.

FAQ:

Q - Do you offer a discount for two dogs?
A - Yes, I will offer a 20% discount for new guests only.

Q - When can I drop off and pickup?
A - After 5am and before 12 midnight.

Wil was very welcoming to our dog and to us. Our dog had a wonderful time playing with Wil's dogs, who are both very friendly dogs. Since our dog is now an only dog, he doubly appreciates the chance to stay with other dogs at a happy home with a fenced yard.

Wil was very gracious and my dog had a great stay.
Wil was great!! Perfect set-up and very attentive to the pups! They came home happy and healthy. We look forward to staying with him again in the future as he made everything really easy!
Very pleased with Dog Vacay. This was then first time we tried the service. Will was great to work with. We received pictures and videos each day we were gone, it was reassuring that our kids were were well taken care of. Drop off, Pick up and payment was very easy and simple. I would definitely recommend Will and Dog Vacay to watch your fur babies.

This was my first experience using a dog-sitter and I could not have asked for a better one with Wil. He has two dogs that are around my dogs age and I can tell they played the whole time. I have never seen my dog so tired and worn out. Will sent me pictures/videos of my dog playing/eating/sleeping to assure me of his well-being while I was gone. Wil really went the extra mile. I will certainly call on Wil again to watch my dog.

Will is an amazing host!! He has such a kind heart for doggies!! He has taken care of our dogs for about 3 years off and on and we have always been very happy. Also, our dogs are always calm and happy when we pick them up! He sends pics too!
Our little dog Chester had a great time! He was well taken care of and we could see he was having a great time from the photos and videos Will sent us numerous times a day. I have full confidence of great care shown our little guy and would not hesitate to highly recommend Will! Amy K

Wil and his dogs are great! Video/picture updates were a plus. Great setup in the house/backyard for a doggie vacation.
Wil watched our dog for 4 night. He sent us many videos during that time of the dogs playing and having a good time! It was a great stay for our little guy because he got lots of doggy socialization and was able to burn his puppy energy. We would use Wil again!

Wil's pet demeanor and set up for dog boarding were 5-STAR. Captain loved it and we were instantly comfortable with Wil. Highly recommend.
Our dog is a "people person" and leaving him at even the fanciest of kennels left him strung out and frazzled for days because for him it was solitary confinement. We tried Dogvacay/Wil because it is a home environment and we thought that might be better. Wil sent us daily videos of our dog happily playing in the yard with other dogs or just sleeping at his feet while he worked. The ability to go wherever he was comfortable, whether the outdoor fenced backyard or indoors, and get human/dog interaction when he wanted it is key for our dog being happy. We picked him up from an 8 day stay with Wil and he is happy and normal. That was such a huge relief for us. We will definitely be sending our dog to Wil again. Thanks for the communication and updates Wil!

Wil was very accommodating and gave us a walk through of his house and all the things that the dogs did while they stayed with him. He left his dogs meet mine, as well as a couple that he babysat for on a regular basis. He was very professional, and seems to really love dogs. He sent videos throughout the vacation, which was completely reassuring to me. I would recommend Will to anyone who needs a good pupsitter.

Will was very friendly and very easy to work with and our dogs (a Golden and a Husky mix) at pick-up seemed happy and well-cared for. June 2016
Wil was great with my yellow lab, both on her care, and last minute accommodations. Both times I picked her up a very happy girl!
We were very pleased with the care that Wil provided our dog Lucky. Wil was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. We would not hesitate to leave our pet with Wil if we visit Denver again.
Really easy experience! Harper was in heaven playing with other dogs all day and I felt great that she was in a home and not in a kennel.I could text Wil any time to check in, and loved getting photos sent to me. Would highly recommend!
This was my first experience boarding my dog. I wanted a home rather than a kennel. Wil took excellent care of my Golden Retriever. He sent photos daily of him playing with Wil's dogs. His home is clean and yard is fenced. I will definitely bring him back again and highly recommend him.

Our dog, Barkley, has stayed with Wil quite a few times & we have NEVER been disappointed. Wil takes great care of our boy & he also sends us videos/pictures to let us know how things are going. We ALWAYS know Barkley is in good hands when he's with Wil! Thanks for another great week!

Will does an awesome job with my dog. I love that he's works from home because my pet is always used to being around someone she is never left alone . and I also thank Will for doing such an awesome job with her because she is a deaf pup so we must always be aware that she doesn't get loose because if she does you cannot call her back.if Will is in your neighborhood or even if he's maybe a little out of your neighborhood he's worth the drive he takes great care of all the dogs. And best of all he's always sending photo or video updates !!!

Our dogs have never spent even one night
away from at least one of us, so you can
imagine how close we are. Wil made all of
us feel right at home from the first minute.
Our dogs were on his furniture looking out the
window upon our return. We would highly
recommend Wil to anyone.

Great experience! Jake was super happy as we were able to gather from the daily videos Wil sent us. We got to see Jake play, eat and sleep comfortably. Wil has a great set up for the dogs and seems to have a genuine love for all of them. We could enjoy our vacation knowing Jake was having his own little vacay. Thank you, Wil! Jake will be back!

My dog loves to go visit Wil--she has such a great time there with his two wonderful labs. His home is very dog friendly, organized and very clean. He is a very kind and gentle dog owner--and treats all of his "guests" with respect. He gets our vote!
Murphy stayed with Wil and his two pups for an entire week while I was back East for work. The picture and video updates were great and I could tell he had a great time during his stay!
Porter had a great time with Wil and his dogs! Would definitely recommend Wil and will book him again when we need to board Porter.
Wil was a great host for my Bentley. I got tons of photo and video updates of the great time he was having. I will definitely use Wil again for future dogvacays. I think Bentley had a blast playing with the hosts, both people and canines :-) Thanks for taking such good care of my boy!

Wil R. was great! He took Toby on a last minute reservation and Toby, who is a little apprehensive of new people, warmed up to Wil right away. We received fun video updates and text reassuring us that Toby was in great hands. All the dogs got along great, without a lot of barking (not sure how Wil did that!) and made for a less anxious drop off for our dog.
Thanks Wil!

Wil was great with my boy Wilson. I really enjoyed the pictures and videos I received during his stay. I would definitely recommend Wil!
We had an absolutely great experience with Wil! It's apparent he knows what he's doing and he took great care of our pup. He was very flexible and sent lots of pictures/videos of our dog having a blast!
Not only did my wife and I love the service and care for our beloved Stella, Stella did too! It was so nice to go away knowing our dog would be cared for at the same level as she is when she is with us. The daily videos and pictures were such a delight and nice touch. We picked Stella up as happy and as healthy as she was when we left. Wil was courteous, professional and a general joy to work with. We will be back soon, and Stella can't wait!

My wife and I are both very reluctant to let anyone else look after our girls. They love to bolt and in an the mountains where we live, they can survive that from time to time, but the idea of it happening in the city is terrifying. Wil was great and has a great, secure yard that reassured us. Our girls came home happy and exhausted from all the playtime. I couldn't be happier with the experience.

Wil was awesome! He accepted our request to have both of our dogs at his house within 12 hours of dropping them off. He sent several pictures of them having fun, and enjoying their stay. He responds quickly, and took great care of Maggie and Riley while they were with him. His home is clean and is perfect for pups. I will definitely contact him again if I need someone to watch my dogs in a pinch! Thanks, Wil!

Very easy. Wil was friendly and sent me a video of my pup happily playing with other pups to put me at ease.
Will is a great dog sitter! He always finds a way to accommodate our schedule and we appreciate that. Our dog Dixie is well taken care of while at his home and we highly recommend him and his services.
We Book w Will fairly often. Always, our dogs are as happy-maybe happier- then when they are at home!!!
Our 1st time with DogVacay and we were very pleased. Wil and his pups took great care of our dog.
Buddy, the beagle really loved his stay with Will R. He gets to play and sleep and eat, 3 things he really cares about. Will has lots of special spots for his dog friends and he takes great care of them. I get lots of pictures, letting me know that Buddy is just fine. Thanks Wil

Scout had a great stay with Wil and his two very friendly labs this past weekend. Wil was a gracious host for our pup and sent lots of pictures and videos. We will for sure be going to Wil when we need future care for Scout!
Wil was great! He sent many pictures of Franklin throughout the weekend, and he always looked like he was having a great time! We will definitely ask Wil to watch our puppy again!
Will was great! Riley and Wrigley added to the fun! Thanks, Luna
Wil was awesome!! My puppy was not behaving very well and he handled it wonderfully, making my vacation enjoyable knowing he was in good hands.
Wil has kept our pooches several times now and he is awesome! Besides he has two adorable doggies!
Our English bulldog always loves his stays with Wil! The big backyard is awesome and we love that Wil often has other dogs for him to play with. Wil even lets Stan sleep in bed with him just like he does at home. And, he is flexible with us for drop off and pick up when we are traveling and not sure of exact arrival times. Stan loves going to Wil's so much that he recognizes when we pull up to his house and starts jumping around with excitement!

Pacer loves it over there, safe and happy home
Thanks for taking such great care of our dog, Barkley! He didn't want to leave! Wil did an amazing job helping our dog stay comfortable, safe, and entertained! I highly recommend Wil and Kobe, your dog will be in good hands!
Wil is awesome! Otto and Ruby love being with and Colby!
Wil & Kobe, Thanks for a fun time! See you again soon, Luna
Wil and his pup, Kobe, are awesome hosts! Our bulldog, Stan, loves going to stay with them! The big back yard is great and I love that Wil sends lots of photos and videos so we can see how much fun he is having. Stan feels right at home at Wil's since he is not afraid to let the dogs roam the house and even sleep in his bed with him like he does with us! Plus, Wil is super flexible and has let us book in short notice before - a great host!

2nd time our dogs have stayed with Wil and they always have a great vacay! Wil is the best Dogsitter we have found, no question. Thanks Wil!
Wil did an outstanding job of taking care of our old golden retriever. This was the best boarding experience that we have ever had. We hope that he keeps doing dog vacay for a long long time.
Thanks Wil & Kobe! Love hanging with both of you. I always feel so welcome in your home! See you again, Luna
Wil is wonderful, Otto & Ruby loved being with him. We will have to have him dog sit again! I loved the pictures he sent while we were gone! Thanks WIL!!!
Wil helped us out with a last minute doggy vacay for our Chocolate Lab. Everything went great! Wil kept us updated with pictures while we were away. She came home exhausted!! Would definitely recommend!
Good home, I'm a repeat customer and hope I don't have to take my boy anywhere else.
Dear all pet owners new to Dog Vacay,
We have a 3.5 yr old Golden that always had friends and neighbors to take care of her when we leave town. Unfortunately, all failed at the last minute prior to our departure. I simply contacted Wil ( after hours of research ) to request a meet and greet a day before. He and Kobe met us with open arms at a moments notice. Finnigan and Kobe ran outside in the most well groomed backyard romping around. Two peas in a pod! Kobe is a Love Bug. We didn't stay long, as after talking with Wil , we knew right away that Finn would be in a home away from home with love. We brought her back the next day for drop off and she ran into their home right away.I never worried about Finn while away. She came home pooped and sad missing Kobe and Wil of course . I rarely write reviews , although I was blind in this endeavour and want to guide others in this difficult decision to a wonderful dog vacation. Tim , Jill and Finnigan

Hi Wil, Had a great time hanging at your home with Kobe! Thanks for taking such great care of me. I'll see you again soon! Paws, Luna
We dropped our dogs off for the weekend and felt they we were in good hands with Will. They had plenty of room to play and we liked getting photos throughout the weekend. We will use Will in the future.
Wil is a great host and his dog, Kobe is a wonderful companion. Our dog was sad to leave. Would definitely recommend him to others.
Very relieved to find a great place to take my pup when I'm away. Wil took great care of her and kept me updated with pics.
What a great experience! Wil was great with our dog, Barkley! Barkley loved spending time with Wil and his wonderful yellow lab. We will definitely use him again!
Dear Wil, Thank you for taking such good care of me! I enjoyed playing with new friends and Kobe. My parents loved all the pictures you sent of me while they were out of town. Look forward to hanging out with you again! Paws, Luna
Jackson had a great time. Lots of friends to play with.
Wil took Tulo in with a few days notice and was outstanding. He even sent me pictures to help me know that the pup was doing well a few times during the weekend. Thanks and I will go to Wil again no doubt.
Our Lab, Jackson, clearly enjoys his stays with Wil and his other doggie companions.
Wil was so very nice and welcoming. His dog Kobe also was just as welcoming.
We have been searching for a new dogsitter for quite a while. We finally found Wil, and couldn't be happier! Our dogs (two) just finished a 3-night stay with Wil and we received pictures and updates throughout our trip, and could tell our pups had a great time. We can't wait to call Wil back for our next trip! -Eric

Best dog day care person you could ask for. Gives them a good home and lets them lots of outside time, highly recommend wil
Lucy was a happy dog which made us happy "parents"!
Will is wonderful with the dogs, seems to genuinely care about them. I think Maggie was a bit sad to have lost her new 4 legged buddy too.
Wil is not only extremely nice and welcoming, he was wonderful with our pup! She came home happy and worn out! Wil was very flexible with our pick up and drop off time! He sent us picture updates, to let us know our dog was having a great time! We would definitely ask Wil to watch our girl again!

Amazing intelligent, kind hearted gentleman.
My dogs have always come back to me from all other sitters stressed out and/ or sick .. But when i picked them up from Wil they were well adjusted, happy, well fed and extremely well taken care of. I am really lucky to have found Wil.

I was very satisfied with the care and attention that Wil provided for my dog for a week. She had a sweet backyard for outdoor time and a cozy inside home with Wil's gentle Labrador for a companion.
Wil is a great dog-sitter! We had to make a last minute reservation with him because our former dog-sitter canceled on us. Wil responded quickly to our reservation request and made us feel confident in leaving our dog with him. Our dog usually doesn't eat because he's nervous when we're out of town. With Wil our dog felt right at home, which was apparent from the adorable photos we received, and ate his normal rations of food. We will definitely be booking with Wil again. He is kind, his dog is very sweet and his home is perfect for making another dog feel welcome. We highly recommend him as a dog sitter.

This was my first time leaving Nick with a stranger or any type of boarding service. Wil eased any concerns I had. He is very friendly, thorough and accommodating. He sent me text pictures of my dog through out the stay so I knew he was okay. It is a relief knowing I have found someone to take such good care of my dog.
