About Philip

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Large fenced yard with beautiful stone deck for your dog to relax outside. Yard is well cared for and if your dog likes to play ball so do I.
Our home is set up indoors with couches and doggie beds for your dog to enjoy our company and relax. I am a single dad with grown children that love pets and we make sure your dog is well cared for and having a great time.

Your additional dogs will be $10 off per night (2nd dog is $40 per night, your 3rd dog will be $30 per night).

Your dog (s) will free in the yard as often as they want but in addition will be walked a few miles per day if they are physically capable. They will get plenty of attention and company.

I offer care in your home thru visits for dogs that live near East Northport, This is great for dogs that prefer their home, short range periods of care, geriatric or prefer strictly being alone, I also care for Parrots, Reptiles, Cats, Tropical Fish and Small Various Pets. It is a flat fee of $25 per visit no matter how many pets.

We text pictures to you directly so you see how happy your dog is.
We aim to make this service as convenient and flexible for you as possible. We have experience, lots of love to give and you will really like the care we provide. We do not own a dog (we prefer caring for dogs through out the year) so when possible, we will accept and provide care for dogs that prefer to not to be with other dogs.

We try to book the minimum guests, or often just your dog (s) if possible to provide the best home away from home, so we recommend booking well in advance. The cost includes everything [walks, a great yard, affection, free roaming the house and love]

Booking well in advance right after a meet and greet is the best approach. To keep guests to a minimum we get booked up quickly which can affect our ranking in the search. Our guests are worth it since we do provide the best and safest care so your dog has a vacation too.

Thank you

Phil was great with our four dogs while we were away on a long weekend. He was patient with their individual quirks, sent pictures often, and coordinated visits with my adult daughter. We will definitely be using is services again and highly recommend him!
This was my first time using DogVacay it was a very good experience. Philip was very good and took great care of my two dogs . And I liked the pictures he sent me everyday.
Phil is the best! My dog had such a great time at his place, I almost felt guilty taking him home. Phil knows dogs & safety is his first priority. He sent photos & videos daily so I could see first hand how much fun Sal was having. I highly recommend Phil and would absolutely send my dogs to him in the future. Thanks Phil!!!
Another great stay with Phil. I love the pics we great everyday!
I couldn't be happier with the whole experience. Phil was so accommodating and friendly, and it was clear he both loved and understood dogs from the moment we met. The daily pics I received while on vacation were always a highlight of the day for my daughter (and me).

I was comfortable that my dog was being well cared for, and am happy to know that I can call Phil the next time I need a sitter, and I won't hesitate to do so.
In the past, I had always left Bailey with family, so I was a bit apprehensive leaving her for 17 days. Phil put me at ease right away. We received daily pictures with updates and Bailey always looked very content.
Philip was awesome! He welcomed my large dog into his home and took the time to get to know him before I dropped him off. During the days he watched my dog, he sent me daily photos and videos, so I could see how much fun my pup was having with his new doggy friends. I could tell that my dog was happy and relaxed, both when I dropped him off and picked him up. He has a large yard where the dogs can run around and inside, the dogs can hang on the couch (just like at home:). I would recommend him to any dog owner.
Our dog is geriatric and Phil was wonderful with her, she went to him with a swollen leg and when we picked her up her leg was so much better. Phil got her to move around and get rid of the edema that was there. My husband and I nickname him the fountain of youth. We feel very comfortable having Phil take care of our dog. This is the first time we used an Internet reccomendation and we are pleasantly surprised. I reccomend Phil with 5 stars and would use him again in the future
What a great experience! Phil is very knowledgable about dog behavior and understands a dog's needs. He has a great system set up to handle all types of dogs and evalutes each dog's behavior and temperment I had never left my dog with anyone else except for a good friend. When she stayed with a friend my dog NEVER slept even though she ran around all day with her two dogs. Her separation anxiety was terrible. I honestly thought that leaving her with Phil would be fine as after meeting him I knew he could handle the situation. However, I didn't think she would sleep or be very happy. Not only did she sleep she came home happy. Phil's daughter helps out and it is nice to have the extra attention. My dog even slept in her bed one night! He sent texts and pictures a few times a day-perfect for easing my anxiety about her well being. ! If my dog can have a successful stay so can yours. Phil is highly recommended!!
