Home Dog Boarding, Pet Sitting, Dog Walking – East Bay Area
Having a dog is like having your own personal happiness machine. They care about your health and push you to get exercise. Dogs feel your pain, give everlasting loyalty, and teach us the most important lessons in life. All they ask in return is love.
If you are a pet owner who lives in Walnut Creek, Danville, Concord, or any other surrounding East Bay city, we can probably help you out. We love pets and realize that life isn’t the same without them. Dog Godfather doesn’t just provide pet care services. We are dedicated to making pets as happy and healthy as possible, and part of doing that is making your job as a pet parent a lot easier.
“Attentive, Dog-Loving People”This was our first time trying this, but we wanted to give it a try because our dog has had a few bad experiences at previous kennels (he is very picky about where he uses the bathroom and tends to be picked on by larger dogs). It was such a relief to leave him with two dog-loving people like Jason and Mona! Our dog, Howie, has a very good judge of character and he immediately loved them. Both Mona and Jason sent me numerous pictures of Howie having fun, cuddling with them, and being goofy while I was away, which made me laugh and relieved my anxiety about leaving him for so long. An added bonus was that they had another little dog they were sitting for, so Howie had a play mate. Jason and Mona are attentive, dog-loving people, and I definitely will be using their services again.
This time Tango ( 3-y yorkie) stayed with Jason for 20 days. Over this time we were constantly in touch with messaging and multiple pictures of our dog. Tango was taken for a long walks that he likes, his picky eating habits were accommodated (Jason went above and beyond with this) , he even got a bath. We will definitely going to use Jason’s services going forward to host our dog.
“I feel so lucky to have found him.”Jason is *so* wonderful. I was moving, and found a dog that I couldn’t keep with my small dogs. I asked Jason to board the dog while I looked for a home for her. He was very kind and conscientious and went way above and beyond in re-homing her for me. Jason made a video of her and posted it in several places online, contacted a client of his with a big Twitter following, and did everything he could think of. It finally worked and the dog now has a home with a nice family. Jason made sure that the adopters were who they said they were. I can’t say enough good things about Jason. He clearly has a heart of gold! And he really knows animals. I feel so lucky to have found him.
“We feel 100% confident that our pup is happy, healthy, safe and comfortable while in Jason’s care.”My wife and I travel often and are so happy to have found Jason and The Dog Godfather! We feel 100% confident that our pup is happy, healthy, safe and comfortable while in Jason’s care. We have never felt good about leaving our little buddy at a kennel and certainly love the alternative The Dog Godfather provides. We have left our dog with The Dog God Father probably a dozen times. The Iron Horse Trail runs right next to Jason’s place, which is awesome for long walks, so we know he gets good activity. Our pup tends to not eat very well when we leave and Jason finds a way to make sure he gets food (by feeding him chicken.) We actually think our dog knows this and so he doesn’t eat on purpose now when at The DGF just so he can get some chicken! Rates are fair, and Jason is always open, honest, and communicative with us. We love getting pictures of our pup texted to us while we are out of town. I highly recommend The Dog Godfather to anyone!
Jason was awesome. He was super helpful with a last minute work trip, and thankfully he was available to watch Dasha for me. I felt very comfortable leaving her there. He made it very easy to manage the process as well. I was very excited to hear from him on how she was doing, especially since she is a new dog for me and not fully trained.
Jason recently watched our 4 year old wheaten terrier. We needed someone in a pinch over fourth of July weekend and he was so accommodating and easy to work with! Oliver is a handful when we’re gone (nervous, doesn’t eat, general anxiety) but Jason handled it so well and communicated with me every step of the way while we were gone. This is the first time we’ve used the in-home option and we’re happy we did. We felt better knowing Oliver was in his own environment and Jason would come by 3 times per day. I highly recommend him! Thanks Dog Godfather!
I was nervous about leaving my cat, Figaro, during an extended trip, due to some previous health concerns. Jason made the process so easy and reassuring. He checked on him daily and provided attention and play. He listened to what Figaro needed during my absence. Jason kept in touch with me via emails on how things were going and asked any needed questions regarding potential health concerns. I will definitely be using Jason again for my little guy. In addition, Jason did a great job keeping an eye on my apartment while I was away. He even vacuumed, because too much litter had tracked on the carpet!! Thanks Jason!
Our dog, Wilbur, loves doggie daycare with Jason. Jason and Mona have been providing excellent care for Wilbur for the last 6 months. Not only is Wilbur cared for in the comfort of a home environment, he also enjoys walks and playing with other dogs. Additionally, Jason is always quick with communication about availability, check-ins and accommodating to our schedule. Wilbur gets excited for daycare. It has made going to work so much easier!! If you are looking for personal attention and excellent care, choose the Dog Godfather for your dog!
“I’m so glad we found the Dog Godfather!”Jason takes our two dogs on regular walks, and we have noticed such a difference! When I come home from work, the dogs are happy and calm. It’s really improved the quality of their day to day life, I’m so glad we found the Dog Godfather!
Jason did a fabulous job with our new dog Pip for both a weekend and a whole week this summer. He took him to an off leash park for the very first time, sent cute pictures and texts, and even worked on some of his social issues with the other dogs there. Jason is confident and unswayed by our nervousness that Pip would be noisy or snippy with other dogs. He reported by text that Pip was being a “perfect gentleman” leaving us to peaceably enjoy our vacation without worries. Highly recommend Dog Godfather!
