About stephen

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I lost my best friend of 13 years on April 8th, 2017, Yuki.
I thought that would result in me not taking dogs anymore, but my 5 years of hosting dogs is even more important to me now.

I know that it is sometimes hard to find someone to sit your dog, so I figure I should offer to help out. Last minute situations are fine, if I am available. My house has completely enclosed back yard to hang out and comfortable couches [unless that is a no-no for your dog]. I know when I was away I didn't want to have to worry about my dog; you don't have to worry about yours.

I do not take Pit Bulls or Pit Bull Mix dogs. Prefer 3 day stay, but often take for longer or shorter. While I send regular updates, I don't send daily updates/photos.

I charge for the day you drop off and the day you pick up. I don't bill by hours you are here.

This includes the twice daily walks to the park, feedings, scratching and petting on the couch and sleeping on my bed if they desire. Happy to give medications.

I don't reserve your dates on the calendar until you have reserved with credit card at DogVacacy to insure first committed, first served. Suggest reservation ahead, as my calendar fills quickly and I don't take lots of dogs. This is especially true around holidays. Despite DV's policies, I only take two dogs at a time to insure plenty of individual care and attention for you pet. So my calendar may look open when it is not.

Must do a Meet/Greet before bookings.

Stephen was very accommodating and his dog Yuki was incredibly gentle and welcoming with Boody. My pup was very active when I was gone and Stephen kept her happy and kept me updated with pics. Would love to book with him again :)
My tiny chihuahua was very happy when we picked her up.
Stephen is great! He kept us up to date with our dog and sent us pictures. When we picked up our dog, we can tell that he was happy with Stephen. We will definitely use his service again.
