About Aaron

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello...
My name is Aaron. My wife Jessica and I are the happy owners of two wonderful Norwich Terriers. Our cute little furbabies names are Nole and Chelsea and they are wonderful little companions. They are very loving and playful and enjoy the company of other dogs. I very much love dog sitting as I have always been a dog lover and have had dogs since childhood. They have always been part of our family and still are to this day. Dogs are very loving and very much appreciate us, so they deserve our love and affection in return. I’m here to give that love back to the dogs.

My wife and I live in a home in Sunrise with a nice spacious area for the pups to roam around the house. I also have a fully fenced in backyard that would be the perfect place for your little ones to play. The backyard has a nice patio and grass throughout and really a great place for your pup to run around or just hang out with Nole and Chelsea. We do live in a nice, quiet neighborhood, so we do like to take all the dogs on a couple of walks a day.

I do work from home, so I have a lot of flexibility of being with your furbabies for much of the day. I can assure you they will get the love and attention they deserve and we will make their time away from you so enjoyable. We will love and care for your dogs as if they were our own, they will become part of our family. We will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable leaving your furbabies with us

I do send daily updates and photos, so you will be know how your furry one is doing and show you the great time they are having. Your dog will get a lot of access to the backyard, so they will get plenty of potty breaks and tons of playtime with my pups and will probably be all tuckered out by the end of the day. I’m pretty flexible with their sleeping arrangements. I would want to talk with you and see what you normally do, so we can accommodate your pup, so they get a good night sleep.

I am very flexible with drop off and pick up times and want to make sure that is as stress-free as possible for you and your little furry one. Just let me know your schedule and we will definitely be able to work something out.

My rate is $28/night for dogs over 1 year of age.
And $30/night for puppies under 1 year of age because they require a lot more time and attention.
My holiday rate is $32/night. Not all days during a holiday stay will necessarily be charged at $32/night.

What I would be interested to know about your dog--
--We only board small to medium breed dogs about 45 lbs. or less…
--Is your dog friendly with other dogs and people?
--Does your dog have a special diet or any health conditions?
--Is your dog potty trained?
--What type of flea preventative do you use?
--Is your dog up to date on vaccines?

Whatever information you can provide to me will make sure your little furbabies will have the best time possible.

I am very responsible and I hope you will feel comfortable having your furbabies come to their home away from home. Please contact me if I can be of service.
Thanks,
Aaron

We were very happy and the dogs too. I like that Aaron communicated with us very well and was always quick to respond to messages.
Like many others, this was Tori's first time being away from the family but Aaron did everything possible to ensure she was comfortable with the environment, and the other dogs. We were scared of leaving her in another home because she's only five months old, but a few hours after we dropped her off...we already got some pictures of her settling in just fine. Aaron sent several pictures every day we were gone, giving us a sense of comfort knowing that she was having fun on her little doggie vacay. His house was very safe and secured and I didn't have to worry about my little pup teething on something she wasn't supposed to. Tori seemed very happy when we came to pick her up, it was like she didn't even realize we were gone! I really appreciate Aaron for taking on our active puppy! Thanks for everything! He's great!

Aaron is a real pet lover! It was the first time I dropped off my little Maltese for a vacation at someone's house! Aaron made me feel comfortable and updated me with texts and lots of pictures during my dog's stay. He sent me a picture of my puppy sleeping on his bed right next to Aaron's bedside, lots of pictures of him playing with the other dogs and even a video of my puppy watching the dog show and trying to get the ones on tv! Aaron was very attentive to details and even carried puppy diapers as my dog unfortunately tried to mark his territory around his house. I am very thankful for all Aaron did for our little boy and glad we were able to have a nice trip without feeling guilty we left the dog behind. I will sure recommend him!

Wonderfull experience with a very kind and attentive family. They love animals and it shows with daily textes and Picture of your doggie having a great vacay. Highly recommended and your pet will love you for it.
This was my first experience using a dog sitter and Aaroon was great. He answered all my text messages, he sent me pictures and videos. No doubt that I will be using Aaron again to take care of my dog. His house is very nice & clean and the fenced backyard is big enough for the dogs. I definitely recommend Aaron 100 %.

As always, Aaron is the perfect furry sitter. Marley loves going there and comes home happy. He takes great care of all his furry children.
I'm a repeat customer of Aaron. I would not trust my dog to anyone else if I need to go out if town.
I needed someone to watch my Sancho and after the great experience I had last time. I knew exactly who would care for him like I would. Aaron is the best
This was my first time using a dig sitter. Aaron was great. He put my mind at ease and sent updates pictures and even video!! I will definitely be using Aaron again to watch my Sancho
He is really nice and his dogs are friendly too. Wonderful stay at home. My dog likes stay his house.
Aaron is a really good dog's fried. Elsa loved to stay with him. He takes care about several small dogs and the dogs have a big space to play on his backyard. Highly recommended !!!
Thank you Aaron! He took wonderful care and attention to our dog. He has a pleasant calm personality that our dog needed. It was the perfect solution for when you have to be away; a home away from home! He had a sensible set up in his home that was clean, and a nice grassy fenced in yard to have the dogs socialize. Our pup came home tired and happy:)

Bella was well cared for and loved. We do not go away often and Aaron made sure Bella was happy and secure. She had a hard time the first night and Aaron gave her a lot of love and was able to relax and enjoy her stay. I would definitely use Aaron again.

Met. And exceeded our expectations. Made our dogs part of his family.
Aaron was a fantastic find.My dog is my precious companion and it's hard to leave her, but I felt completely at ease with her "vacay" with Aaron. He has a great setup for doggie care and a backyard made for their playtime. This is my first vacay experience and I've already booked with Aaron for my next trip. I'm so glad I found him and I know Marley is too. Loved the pictures while we were gone.

Very friendly and great with his guests. Will definitely request again!
outstanding - very easy to work with, professional, reliable. Has experience watching different breeds and is highly responsive. We are very glad that we booked with Aaron, will definitely use him again and would highly recommend him.
My dog felt like home with Aaron.
Aaron was absolutely wonderful! I was nervous finding someone to leave Toby with for 2 weeks but from the moment Toby and I first met him, I knew we found the right sitter. Aaron has a very nice size backyard and the inside of his house is set up very safely. The dogs have the run of the house and furniture.
The thing I was most impressed with was how well Aaron stayed in contact with me. I received multiple pictures and videos DAILY of Toby. From running around with the other dogs to sleeping in Aaron's bed. It was obvious how comfortable and at home Toby felt. It made my vacation that much more enjoyable. I will definitely be using Aaron again and highly recommend him!

We are so glad we found Aaron! Our maltipoo, Betsey, loves him and we know she is in good hands with him! We won't use any other sitters as long as he's available. We were worried to leave her with someone the first time because she can be very needy and emotional but he gave her lots of attention and we know she had a good time. Aaron was very nice to let us do a meet and greet first. He answered all our questions and it was good to see how Betsey would do in the new environment with other dogs. We liked that he uses gates to close off an area for the new dog to get used to the other dogs and sniff each other out. I know it's hard to leave your dog with someone but we trust Aaron 100%! Thanks, Aaron! Betsey is looking forward to her next vacay!

Everything with Aaron was perfect! I highly recommend his services . He really likes pets and take care as if they were his own. Next trip I definitely call him again.
Excellent! Aaron was extremelly patient, he sent me a lot of pictures and understood Fabian's (mine actually) anxiety. Those who own an Italian Greyhound know what I mean. Thanks Aaron for the special care.
This was my first time using DogVacay. Aaron was responsive and courteous since the initial contact. He helped me through the process of "meet and greet" and booking. During my dog's stay, he sent pictures to make me at ease. when my returning flight was delayed, Aaron was very flexible and accommodating. I would definitely rebook with him in the future.

This was our first experience with dog vacay and we were very satisfied with Aaron. We had a good feeling to leave our dog with Aaron and his wife. He kept us updated every day and also sent us pictures. We will definitely book him again!
Sandy had a great stay with Aaron and we had peace of mind while we were away that she was in good care. Aaron was very accommodating with organising a meet and greet before the booking, with our pick-up and drop-off times, and we stayed in contact and received pictures of Sandy each day during the vacay. Sandy is not used to staying away from home and Aaron spent time with us to learn about her and her habits and made sure she was comfortable and happy in her new environment. Thank you, Aaron!

Aaron keep us updated with picture every single day, couple of times a day. Thank you Aaron and wife deff Niky is coming back to you. You're a person we can trust will love our Niky while we out.

I can tell Foxy had a blast with Aaron and the other dogs. She slept the entire car ride home! :)
Aaron was great with sending me updates and pics on how Foxy's days went. His house is very clean and doesn't have that "pet stench" that most places have (a big plus in my book). I'll definitely use Aaron as my pet sitter again!

My dog koko spent a week with Aaron. This was her first time to be away from home and I had my concerns leaving her but I did my homework and did several meet and greets and I can happily say, Aaron was by far the best choice. So if anyone out there is looking for a pet-sitter, I have already done the work...just choose Aaron. Believe me, I am the epitome of a dog mom and I would only choose the best care for my dog. Also, I am a clean freak and the first thing I noticed about his place is that it was immaculately clean and neat. All the dogs there were playful and clean and just looked comfortable. He kept me informed everyday, took lots of pics of my little one and made sure I was not to worry. I had a flight that came in late at night and he was very accommodating when I asked to pick her up that night. I will for sure choose Aaron again if the need ever arises and would recommend him with 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! Thank you Aaron for taking such good care of my baby. It was one less thing I had to worry about and I really appreciate it. Hugs & kisses from koko :)

Aaron was absolutely great!

He kept us informed all days, shared pictures and we could tell that he understood how our dog behaves and likes to spend the day.

Upon return, we've noticed that our dog was happy, healthy and enjoyed her stay as much as possible, although being away from us for a fairly good amount of time.

I definitely recommend him and would certainly book another stay with Aaron as we need, and he's available.

Two thumbs up!

Aaron was a great fit for my dog and family. This was my first experience leaving my dog with anyone Aaron put my worries to rest. He sent picture and videos, that my kids loved receiving! Kenzie had so much fun playing with other dogs her size. I don't think she wanted to leave :)

Aaron was. Excellent from start to finish, he honored our drop off and pickup time with no issues, and he kept us informed with pictures and ipdates on tabia's stay. And i can tell she loved his company. I will definitely book future stays here,there were no worries at all leaving my little diva there.

Aaron was an awesome host. He took great care of my little Italian Greyhound and sent me frequent updates. My dog had other dogs his size to play with and it was comforting to know that Aaron is there most of the time since he works from home. Overall, I was very satisfied.

Great person, great service, great house. If you want to leave your dog some where, this is the place.
Second time leaving our dog, a Bichon Frise, with Aaron for a weekend while we traveled out of town. Once again, we were highly satisfied with the care of our dog. We have grown so confident with Aaron, that we are now requesting him to care for our dog one more time - a third time - for the long Memorial Day weekend. We strongly recommend Aaron to anyone!

Where do I even begin... Aron surpassed my DogVacay expectations. This being my first DogVacay experience, I was extremely hesitant to leave my Candy in the arms of an unknown petsitter but last minute pet sitting arrangements changed and this became the only option that wouldn't be so drastic for my pets well being as she has never been alone or in an overnight boarding facility.

Aron kept me constantly updated with pictures, videos, and messages putting my mind at ease that this was, in fact, the best choice while we were away. I was a bit concern about her being around so many dogs at a time, but Aron was able to give each dog the proper attention and care. I was even shocked how well she adapted to other dogs and socialized as she has never really been around other dogs before. When I came to pick her up, she was excited to see me and yet sad to leave her new friends that I may have to consider now dropping her off at dog daycare once a week to have her socialize and play with her new friends.

If you're a DogVacay first timer, Aron is the best choice, in my opinion, to put your mind at ease and pick up your dog as happy as if they would be in your own home.

Aaron was great, looks like Zoe had a great time. Good communication and more than daily updates. Definitely would use him again!
I needed someone to watch my little Sancho on short notice. Aaron accepted my reservation request as was available when I needed to drop him off. Not only did he send me frequent updates but also lots of pictures to keep my mind at ease while i was away. Sancho had a great time. And Aaron was wonderful! I will without a doubt be using Aaron again for the next time I go out of town. And I have already recommended him to a friend of mine to use in the future.

Rocky was so happy with Aaron and friends. He had a great time!
Aaron's is by far the best vacation for our Jax when we are unable to take him with us on ours. Jax is always exhausted from playing and having fun when I pick him up! Aaron always sends great videos and pictures. There's no doubt that the fur babies get THE best care with Aaron!!

This was the first time our dog Mozart stayed overnight with Aaron and his dogs, and my dog seemed very happy! Aaron took care of our dog as if it was his own, and he also kept us informed with daily emails and photos. We were very pleased with the care of our dog. I strongly recommend.

I cannot thank Aaron enough, or recommend him more whole heartedly. We have 3 small dogs that all have their "issues" - one's 20 years old and blind, another diabetic, and the third a skiddish young dog from rescue. Aaron was super accommodating with the schedule. He worked hard to make them all feel comfortable and attend to their individual needs. Sent us pictures and updates throughout their stay. He even went the extra mile to cook the dogs chicken to mix with their dog food when we had car trouble on the way back into town, and arrived later than planned. We'll definitely ask Aaron to care for our pups on future visits. Thanks again!!!!

Great dog sitter, kept in touch with us throughout our miniature schnauzer stayed with him, 100% recommended!!
Aaron was FANTASTIC! We were leaving town unexpectedly, and Aaron was extremely accommodating on very little notice - made time for a meet-and-greet same day, and then hosted our Wrigley the following morning. She is 16 months old, extremely shy and timid, and yet she warmed up to Aaron within the first hour - I know because he sent me lots of photos, including several of her cuddling up to him. We will absolutely ask Aaron to host her again when we need to be out of town. In fact, she seemed so happy there, I may request occasional doggie daycare during long work days just so she can visit!

Aaron is the best dogsitter! Very flexible with drop off and pick up times. Keeps a paper on all details and emergency info. I received the cutest pics everyday. My two little Havanese looked so happy and calm. My only fear was that they wouldn't want to come back home after being pampered so well!

Aaron and his place was just perfect for my Rusty. All the little dogs were good to him gave him company and i think he actually enjoyed his stay! Rusty is 16, blind and deaf with not much energy but he seemed well taken care of and happy when i picked him up after 3 days. Thank you Aaron!
i have alreafy recommended Aaron to a friend in Ft Lauderdale

Aroson's care was more than I expected!!! I had family from Japan for one week, and I brought my dogs to his house for couple days since we went to Orlando and one of my family member(2 years old) was not comfortable with dogs, so since Arson was taking care of my dogs really good, I asked him for them to stay extra nights. Aroson always informed me how dogs are doing etc... so I was so comfortable my dogs were with Aroson. His house was very clean and dogs can be inside and outside, and they seemed so relaxed.... I will ask him again when I need someone to look after my dogs next time.

Aaron was great!!... He kept us informed, and even shared photos with us. Bolo came home very happy. Will definitely use his services again!!!
Aaron provided daycare for Kira for a couple a weeks while I was getting construction done at my house. Aaron is great with Kira. She absolutely loves her time at his house. He takes her for walks and plays with her. She has other dogs to run around with. He sends great pics. She comes home tuckered out which says a lot for her as she has quite a bit of energy and gets anxiety when she is in a new environment. She gets very excited in the morning when she sees that leash. I can go on vacation with no worries that she is in good hands. I would highly recommend him and will continue to use him as needed.
