I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

I have owned and loved dogs since childhood and cared for a variety of breeds over the years. From loving and loyal Pitbulls to sassy German Short-haired Pointers, there isn't a breed of dog I haven't loved!

I enjoy active dogs as well as lap dogs alike, they are all wonderful and special companions who need love and fun while you're away.

Dog Boarding in Orange County

The OC is one of the most iconic destinations anywhere in California, not to mention the entire United States! And if you visit this beautiful part of the world with your pooch in tow, there’s no shortage of wonderful dog-friendly experiences just waiting to be explored.

Orange County also boasts a wide range of paw-some animal rescue groups that are always looking out for the needs of unwanted, abandoned, abused, and neglected animals in the area.

Orange County Humane Society (OCHS) is a perfect example. Founded in 1949, OCHS has provided shelter and care to hundreds of thousands of animals in need, helping them get back on their feet and find permanent homes. With a mission to protect abused, unwanted, neglected, and under-appreciated animals, OCHS plans to keep pursuing this mission until stray and sick animals no longer roam the streets.

The Pet Adoption Center of Orange County is another of the region’s dedicated animal advocates. With a mission to help adoptable pets find loving people and the resources they need to be a family for life, the Center accepts pets from local animal control agencies and animal welfare organizations. Those pets are housed in a modern, comfortable, adoption-guaranteed facility in Lake Forest, where they receive much-needed care and shelter before being paired with loving owners.

These are just two of the animal rescue and welfare organizations serving Orange County. There are many, many other wonderful groups which we simply don’t have the space to mention here, but all of them do amazing work for the animals and all are worthy of recognition.
