About David

Howdy,

I am a professional developer living and working in Mountain View. I grew up around dogs and all kinds of animals from rabbits to alpacas. These days, although I don't currently have any pets myself, I enjoy playing with the dogs of my friends and relatives. Also, my office is very dog friendly; more than ten percent of my company brings their dogs to work on a regular basis. I enjoy dogsitting for my colleagues whenever they need help.

My girlfriend, with whom I live, has raised 5 dogs since she was young. I find her special affinity with animals to be one of her most endearing qualities. We live near several parks next to downtown Mountain View and we are well equipped to handle dogs of all varieties, sizes, and personalities.

I am also getting involved with an exciting new volunteer startup called Walkzee that matches walkers with shelters. The dogs wear 'adopt me' vests and the experience helps the animals both in the short (the walk itself) and in the long term (potential adoption).

We currently have no pets of our own (other than our finicky bonsai trees) so you can rest assures that your special canines will have our undivided attention. We do plan to adopt a dog of our own in the future; perhaps sometime early next year.

We live near downtown Mountain View and we often go on walks to our quaint downtown and to our many local parks. Our neighborhood is quiet and very dog friendly. We are close to the Mountain View Caltrain station with easy access to 101, 85, and central expressway.

For more active dogs, we enjoy playing fetch and frisbee, but we are also happy to relax at home with older dogs while we listen to music and have fun inside. All breeds and sizes are welcome, for a walk, for the day, or while you are away on vacation.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry friends!

David was excellent!

He made every effort to come pick up keys as well as drop them off after his visit with our cat. While we were gone, kitty was well fed and watered and the litter box and surrounding floor were kept clean. David was extremely responsive and absolutely uncomplicated to work with.

I'd absolutely recommend him to anyone!

My puppy had a nice stay at David and Manow's place. He enjoyed his puppy massages from Manow :) They are very easy to work with and are very flexible with drop off and pick up times. I also get regular photo updates which puts a smile on my face whenever I get them.

Our 8 week old golden retriever puppy had a great time at David's. She will most definitely be returning!
David and Manow took wonderful care of our dog, who definitely enjoyed his stay. Beyond providing a useful service, they clearly enjoy spending time with animals, and their kindness shines through. Very flexible about drop off and pick up, and periodic photos showed a relaxed and happy dog. Highly recommended!

I used David and Manow for a day of doggy care and found a happy doggy when I stopped in to pick up my Tessa.

Little Tessa got the full VIP treatment since she was the only dog. Absolutely worth booking the couple again the next time Tessa some caring for the day or an overnight stay.

Dave and Manow were great hosts! They are always super quick to respond to all of our messages. They were flexible in setting up a good time for us to all meet and answered all of our questions.

Our dogs stayed with them for the day and we received lots of pictures throughout to let us know the dogs were having a great time. One of our dogs rarely eats the first day he’s with someone new as he gets nervous, but when I picked them up at the end of the day, they had finished all of their food – definitely a sign that the dogs were super comfortable there. We’ll definitely use Dave and Manow again!

David and Manow were fantastic! They took great care of our Golden Retriever and he even cried he was so happy to see them the second time they arrived! I would highly recommend!! :)
David and Manow were very accommodating with the scheduling, provided pictures during our dog's stay, and were consummate dogsitters. Our dog came back happy and tuckered out. Thanks!!
Dave and Manow were wonderful! They treated Kip like he was their own beloved dog. Very grateful for such great sitters!
David was an excellent host to my dog Baxter. He was so accommodating when we had to change plans. He sent us photos and texts as to how Bax was enjoying his stay. I would highly recommend David and I think Baxter is looking forward to his next stay in Mountain View with David & his wife.

Our dog had a great stay, and I appreciated David's responsive communication!
David and his girlfriend were awesome! They doted on my dog, took him to the park for exercise and play, and sent me really cute photos of him for daily update. My dog came home smelling good and happy. Highly recommend!
Great host for our two dogs! They walked them regularly and sent us regular updates on them while we were away.
Took wonderful care of our new puppy, made the experience very easy, would definitely recommend!
This review is long overdue! David and his girlfriend are the most kind and caring couple for our 3 yr old pup. He has stayed with them several times since November '15 and it has been a very happy experience for owner and pup!! From the moment our pup met David, we knew that it was a match! I think that David was surprised that our pup was so happy to meet him at our meet n greet. Our pup always came home happy and clean. Thank you David.

David took great care of our foster dog, Fella, while we attended a day long event. David was great with our shy little foster pup and is knowledgeable about dogs. We did a meet and greet a few days prior and obviously Fella was relaxed and happy there which is saying a lot for a little dog who is a little slower to warm up to men. He got to go for a walk and got some good play time in. When we came to pick Fella up, he was lounging comfortably and looked very happy. Frankly, he didn't seem in a hurry to leave. Highly recommend!
