About David

We are a young, professional couple that truly loves animals (as well as classical music, world cinema, and ethnic cuisine)... We have a wonderful, beautiful dog that sincerely loves everybody & everything... We are attentive, nurturing, reasonable, dependable, and accommodating... We live near the water, a park, and a dog-run... We go for walks at least four times per day, for at least thirty minutes each... One of us works from home, so at least one of us will always be home to make sure that your pup is happy... Our apartment is very clean, tidy, and safe... We never leave anything out, wires are always hidden, power-outlets are always covered, laundry is always done, dishes are always washed, and the trash is always taken-out... Your pup will always be welcome to play and/or sleep wherever they want, whenever they want... Our dog's bed is washed regularly & ready to share, as is his crate, and so are all of his toys -- plus we also have three large dog-friendly couches!

David was an awesome sitter for my Great Dane! When my dog chewed up his bed David made sure the mess was cleaned up before I got home. Not only did he take phenomenal care of my dog I really appreciated how he watched after my apartment. Would definitely recommend, he's great!

David is great and I received daily updates and photos during my 9-day vacation. One of my Frenchies does not like other dogs and the other has anxiety issues so both of them require extra care and attention, which David provided. We also met Jost during a meet-and-greet and he was so calm and sweet.

David was an absolute pleasure and our dog loved getting to spend time with him. I highly recommend both David and DogVacay as it was the best experience we've had or could have asked for as it relates to taking care of our big boy. Our dog is extremely large and has specific needs all of which David was not only familiar with but more than able to handle. I can't say enough about how great our experience was and how we look forward to working with David again!

David was WONDERFUL! We contacted David a week prior to our travels in high need of a dog sitter. Our dog, Rocky, is an older Pit Bull who requires lots of love, attention, and medical care. We felt extremely comfortable leaving David to watch over him and even more so with our daily text updates and pictures. We have already requested future bookings with David and look forward to traveling without concern or fear about our dogs care.

David did a fantastic job in-home sitting our pitbull Maggie! Maggie's the sweetest dog in the world, but has the energy of a nuclear power plant, and, unfortunately, isn't good with other dogs, so experienced, safe handling is an absolute must in a sitter for us. David handled her deftly, and kept her absolutely tuckered out from walks and play. I think she had a blast having him stay over. We also received multiple pics per day, and at the times we requested. We'll definitely be using David again!

David is great and Astro even got a playmate, Jost, too!
David is awesome! He took good care of my puppy and update me constantly. If I have to go away again, he will be my first choice again definitely!
I had my 2 dogs and 1 cat stay with David at his home for two weeks. Boy, did they have a blast! David really went out of his way to take care of our boys, and made them really feel at home. He would keep us updated on how they were doing, really assuring us they were in the best of care at all times, even sending us pics/videos of their shenanigans! Nothing but kudos and praises for David, Kevin, and furry friend Jost. Thanks guys!

David is great, he's very attentive and will send constant updates. He even gave Chandler a new toy to play with! I'll definitely trust him with my dog any time.
David is the best! So accommodating even in last minute holiday situations! He sends a large number of photos and videos while you are away. Top Notch communicator and easily the best service I have received in NYC. I highly recommend.
David is awesome!!! He takes excellent care of my dog while I am at work and away on business or personal trips. My dog loves him, his family and his dog (I think she prefers to be at his house!). David keeps me updated with pictures and texts and stories while I am away, and I think he truly cares for my dog as he would his own. My dog has had some special medical needs, and he takes amazing care of her and has even taken her to the vet in my absence. He is truly caring, reliable, responsive and takes his responsibilities as my dog's (temporary) guardian very seriously. One couldn't ask for a better pet sitter - we have had an EXCELLENT experience working with David!

David is awesome. Our 80lbs chocolate lab Sam stays with him whenever we are away overnight. David is very responsive and flexible. He takes excellent care of Sam - takes him out for long walks, and play time outside, gives him medicine when Sam is sick, cleans out his ears, etc. Sam loves it at David's place, he is usually a bit depressed when he gets back home (and we are quite nice people). I can highly recommend David!!!

David has watched Baci on a number of different occasions. Working with David was great - he sent pictures and communicated, was flexible when my flight was pushed back a day, and helped accommodate transportation to and from his place with my greyhound, Baci. I know Baci had a great stay at David's because he wouldn't stop howling after David dropped him off. :)

David was AMAZING with my dog, Jackson. On our 6-day trip, David sent pictures every day with updates. I could tell that Jackson was happy after his vacay with David. Also, David has been very flexible and trustworthy! As an apprehensive dog parent, I absolutely recommend David to anyone.

David was amazing!!! Sansa was so happy to see him again. Will definitely see him again
David is great and so flexible. My dog loves staying over and has the best time. Thank you!!
David was great as usual - sent us updates and photos/video of our dog so we had plenty of peace of mind while we were away. My favorite: a video of David's dog Jost and our dog lying with their arms around each other just chewing on each other's faces. Would recommend David & Jost to anyone!

David was absolutely amazing! He took my two dogs and treated them like royalty (which is how most dogs are treated by their owner). My dogs loved him so much they were unfazed that I had to leave them. David surpasses 5 stars and is off the charts with a sky full of stars. He exercised the dogs, and gave them unconditional love. He even helped me with one of my dogs that is a yippy to reduce the yipping! LOL It worked with my crazy schedule and when my flight was delayed he made me relax knowing it wasn't a problem. If you need a dog sitter David is your guy!

Thanks so much David! I look forward to future dates when you I can count on you to keep my dogs safe and LOVED!

David exceeded my expectations in every way. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He went beyond satisfying my dog's basic needs and genuinely cared for him as if he was his own dog. He even gave me a harness and sent me some links for dog bowls for Rufus.
David is my go-to guy from now on!!
I am moving to West New York NJ but will still use David's services (in Nov 2015 if he is available). Thanks so much David.

Love Davis , so does Moops. My life is so much easier with him around. He is always accommodative and provides funny picture updates whenever I am away. Highly recommended!
David was fantastic! Excellent communication and was meticulous in caring for my bulldog's daily grooming requirements. Loved all the pics he took :)
David was really great and responsive on very short notice when our original dog sitting plans fell through. We received daily, thoughtful updates and pictures and it looked like Hogan was having a blast! Would definitely, highly recommend David (and his dog Jost, who was a very friendly host :) )

David was a fantastic host for Scout. He sent plenty of pictures (plus a video!) and was really responsive. Scout had an ear infection and he great administering her medication. David's dog, Jost is a sweetheart and Scout got along with him very well. He was very accommodating with pickup/drop off. We absolutely recommend David (and Jost!)

Pretty sure Craysie Gracie fell in love with Jost. She was glad to see me when I picked her up, of course, but she howled like I've never heard her howl when I separated them! So glad she had a good time with Jost and David and came home thoroughly tuckered out!

David is wonderful! He took care of our dear Maíz for a week, while we were visiting family in New York. He was nice, reliable, responsible, and accommodating. He sent us pics of Maíz and she clearly had a great time with him and his doggy. We totally recommend him!

I never have to worry a single second when my precious Lulu is with David. I know she is in very safe hands.
David was great! Super responsive and flexible. His dog Jost is adorable and super friendly. He sent lots of pictures and updates about our dog "Chicken" and she was able to take naps at his sofa, made new friends at their close by dog park. Great home feeling stay for your furry friend. :)

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My dog loved him! That says a lot because my dog was a very badly abused rescue. Kind and flexible. His pictures were very, very sweetful.
David was absolutely fantastic! He sent wonderful pictures and was very flexible. My dog had a wonderful time. :)
David was a super dog-sitter for Cody! I got pictures everyday and updates on what he was doing. This was the first time I left Cody with someone, and it was so comforting to know that he was in such good hands. I'm happy to have found someone so dependable to take care of Cody when I'm away.

David was willing to take us last minute. I could right away see that he know his way with dogs. I got daily pictures , and my dog came back very happy . Thank you David for taking good care of Rocco !
David was available on very short notice for our two babies (one large and one small). It's clear from their moods that they were well taken care of. I would definitely recommend David for one or more dogs.
I had an amazing last minute experience with David and his pup Jost! They responded within an hour, were happy to come over to meet and greet and their dog is very friendly and Beownie fell in love with him immidiatelly!
I got photo updates and communication was excellent. Great host! Highly recommended! Thank you David.

Needed an extra day and David was able to accommodate me! Awesome!!!
David was awesome! My girl came back tired and happy! I will be using him again. Got some great pictures of her time there!
I was very happy to find david on very short notice to take care of my babies. They were both in great spirits when I picked them up which is clear evidence they were well taken care of.
We boarded our 75 lb dog-Max, with David for 2 weeks during the Christmas 2013. We were very nervous about leaving Max for this long a period, especially during winter and he has never been away from us for more than 4 hrs. But, David was really great about taking care of Max and of course, his dog Jost was very friendly and welcoming towards Max. David sent us regular text messages and pictures of Max and Jost cuddling and playing and it gave us such peace of mind especially when we were so far away in India. By day 2, we were completely relieved of all the anxiety we had and were confident that we left Max in amazing company. David was responsive to all our questions and concerns before and during the boarding and he was also flexible with the pick-up and drop-off times. Max had such a good time with Jost that he cried so much when we went to pick him up. We will definitely go back to David with absolutely no concerns and we highly recommend him. Thanks for a great Christmas David and Jost!

I can only say thank you and Jess is saying woof-woof! Having Jess looked after at David's place was stress-free. David agreed to meet us at the dog park with his boxer mix Jost before we asked him to look after Jess so we would get to know them. During our trip, David made sure to send us pictures of her and her new best friend every day. Although Jess cannot talk, I could definitely tell she had the time of her life. Her buddy is very well behaved and I had a very positive impression. Perfect holiday spot for our Jessie:-)

David was great! He even sent me some pics of Logan ad his pup (Jost) lounging around. If you are looking for someone to take good care of your dog while you are gone, David is #1!!! Thanks again David!
David and Jolt are very nice hosts to our puppy. They are gentle and friendly. My puppy enjoyed his stay. David took several pictures and sent to us, which is very nice to us because it shows how my puppy enjoyed the stay.
David was wonderful with our two teacup pups. He was accommodating to my last minute request to house our dogs for 2 nights, and very responsive via email with the questions I had. He was communicative throughout the entire time with them and sent pictures, texted updates and made himself available for any concerns. He has a very well-behaved dog too, who became fast friends with my dogs, especially my yorkie Sasha, and I know she was sad to part ways and say goodbye to a new friend. David took the dogs out on walks and was a sensitive, intuitive host - a true dog lover. Overall, this was a great experience, from the arranging of the stay, pickup/drop off, communication while watching the dogs. I would definitely book with him again and I highly recommend him. Thank you for a great experience!!
