About Nate & Ray

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Friendly fun house. We have 3 loving super friendly dogs who love other dogs. With our daily dog park trips, they love playing with others. All have free roaming of the house with access to outside with our doggie door which allows them to our pool and fenced in yard. We also allow them on the couch and bed! We love walks, runs, and swims! Your dog is treated as one of ours and is given so much love and attention. SO much love they will be looking to come back soon!!!
Worried bout cat? Don't be. He thinks he's a dog and only likes dogs :-)

Gladly watch any other animals too such as guineas and hamsters. Let us know :-)

Over Night Boarding:
Check-Out Time is 3 PM. After 3:00PM a $20 Half Day / Day Care charge may apply for each dog. Please be considerate. An overnight boarding is an overnight stay.

No drop offs/pick ups on Friday and Monday mornings. Pick up/drop off on Friday is after 4pm. Monday pick up/drop off is after 500pm

If your dog will be staying overnight, we recommend that you bring them for a visit prior to boarding, so they can be familiar with the setting.
Please no aggressive dogs or untrained dogs or dogs unfamiliar playing with other dogs. They may be better off at a kennel or another setting. This is a free range of house and outside to have fun with other dogs. :-)

They took excellent care of my dog. They sent me pictures everyday which was wonderful that I got to see her and not have to worry about how she was doing. She ate turkey on Thanksgiving and made a lot of new friends during her stay. It was also very comforting to know that she would be snuggling under the covers like she does at home. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be using their services again.

Nate & Ray are absolutely amazing! My pup stayed with them for thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. She went on a walk, swam, and she even had a little turkey treat! How do I know all of this? They sent me tons of pictures and videos documenting the entire day. I will definitely be sending my pup to hang with Nate and Ray more often.

First off I know everyone says this but I don't not trust my dog with ANYONE, including family. We researched and visited with nate and Ray prior to Lola's visit and it was an immediate connection. Nate and Ray and their son are now a part of our family. They updated me constantly with her emotional state as well as pictures and videos. These guys truly love animals and it shows. Lola had a rough time adjusting as did I. She is my emotional.support animal and had never been away from me. She had some aseperation anxiety and the guys updated me throughout. By the time we picked her up she was herself strutting around like she was home. I am so blessed to have found them.

Bud, our skittish Weimaraner, did great on his first 3-day stay over with Nate & Ray. It looked like he settled right in with their dogs. We got lots of photos of him in every corner and bed of their house as well as in the dog park. Thanks so much for having him. We'll definitely book our next dog vacation with you.

Thrilled with the experience! Would definitely recommend these 2, they're great! I loved getting videos and picture updates throughout the stay! Can't wait to book with Nate and Ray again.
Nate & Ray were fantastic! Milo seemed to have a good time and he was well cared for. Drop off and pick up were a breeze, and all the pictures they sent were great. It was nice to see the daily updates.

I highly recommend Nate & Ray, and I'm booking my next stay with them for next month.

This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was awesome. Nate and Ray were super nice and took great care of our two dogs. They sent frequent videos and photos showing our dogs playing with theirs, at the dog park and cuddling on the couch. It was so nice to know our dogs were safe and happy. Would definitely book with them again and would highly recommend them. Thanks Nate and Ray!!

Nate and Ray are great. The girls always have a good time.
Nate and Ray were excellent with the girls. They always have a good time when staying with Nate and Ray.
Nate and Ray were MORE than accommodating to my 2 dogs: swimming, two dog parks, cuddling, comfy dog beds, etc... They also sent photos and videos regularly so I could see how much fun they were having and that they were safe. I would definitely use them again.

Nate and Ray are amazing with dogs! Jesse had a blast!!!
Nate & Ray M are the best. They've looked after my dogs twice: once when I was away for about 10 days (and kept changing my plans, which didn't bother Nate & Ray M in the least -- they couldn't have been more accommodating), and once when I unexpectedly had to be in the hospital for an unknown number of days.

I contacted Nate & Ray M from the emergency room, and they went to my house and picked up my dogs - just like that. They even sent me photos of my dogs in their car while they were driving dogs to their second home, which is where Nate & Ray M live.

My dogs have more fun with Nate & Ray M than they do with me. And that's not just an educated guess; my dogs told me.

If you have a dog or dogs, and they need a second home, they've got one with Nate & Ray M.

Nate and Ray were great! I needed a last minute pet sitter and they were so accommodating. My dog Belle is a little timid meeting new people, so I was anxious about leaving her with a sitter. But within a couple of hours I was getting pictures and videos of Belle playing and having a great time. Thank you, Nate and Ray!

Nate and ray were by far, the best dog sitters we have ever had...my dog came home smiling and happy..thanks guys
This was second time they watched my dog, she was excited when we turned down street, and immediately felt comfortable in home. They are extremely caring, and my dog was loved as I would highly recommend
They were awesome. My pup loved staying with them. We will definitely use them again in the future.
All I can say is wonderful!!! My dogs seemed extremely happy with their stay....they went to the dog park and met lots of new friends! They even sent the most adorable pictures!! Would highly recommend!! Abbey and Sierra say HI! $
Absolute Best. Our girls loved their vacay and we loved all the updates! Nate and Ray were very responsive with messages and proactive with keeping us updated. We flew out of town for several days and had no doubt in our minds that our girls were well-taken care of. They have an awesome backyard with ample space for the dogs to chill out and/or run around. We're pretty sure our girls despised us for taking them home! It was very comforting knowing that our girls were in great hands with their wonderful family. Without question, we will definitely be booking with them for future travels.

How high of a score am I allowed to give these guys?  

Whatever that value is, then Nate and Ray should be given a score that exceeds that highest amount!

While personally experiencing some extremely intense circumstances in my own life, Nate and Ray have been taking care of "my poochies."

As they have done so, I have been completely able, both, mentally, and, emotionally, to release the care of my babies to them, knowing that the care they were giving (and, still are giving) my babies, was so thorough, so loving, and, so complete, that the well being of my puppies was one area of my life, about which, I had absolutely no need for concern. 

And, that has meant the world, to me!

The "ying and the yang," of how "tuned in" Nate and Ray have been, to both of my babies' personalities and needs, (AS WELL AS MY OWN!!) has been absolutely stunning to me!

Dudes, gentlemen (ie, Nate, and, Ray), From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, both!!

Fun time was had by both Spuds and Millie @ Nate and Rays. The house and the surrounding grounds are very clean, you wouldn't even know that there were dogs all around.
Nate and Ray were absolutely great. Pictures every day, always had the dogs up to some activity. Great pack of dogs and environment. I could tell my dog had a blast, she was exhausted for a whole day after I picked her up. I can't wait to have them watch her again.

Glad I choose you guys for Boom. Now I know that he enjoys to swim. I would recommend them to anyone.
Nate and Ray were fantastic. They sent me pictures and updates on my dogs each day. I like that my dogs got to wander in and out of the house thru the dog door. I liked that they had dog beds to sleep in. My pets were treated with affection and could have attention when they wanted or needed it. I will use this service again with Nate and Ray.

Nate & Ray are absolutely AWESOME!! This was my baby Bella's very first Daycare experience & she had the best time!! From her first ever dog park visit to her first ever pool swim!! They sent me plenty of pictures throughout the day so I could see how much FUN, FUN, FUN she was having!! I WILL be booking more Daycare days in the future & I also plan on Boarding Bella with them for an up coming trip I have planned. Thanks for making my baby Bella feel at HOME & LOVED while away from her home Nate & Ray, you guys & your fur babies ROCK!! Angie B

Nate and Ray were awesome. Very warm, caring and accommodating. I have already recommended them to my friends for future doggy care. They even sent me pictures of my dog while I was gone. They went above and beyond expectations
I can't express how happy I was with Nate and Ray. They sent me pictures every day and I could see that my dog (Tyson) was having a wonderful time!!! I think Tyson was actually a little sad when I picked him up. They went to a dog park every day and he had a great time!! I will absolutely take him there every time I need to be away. I'm sure Tyson can't wait!

Nate & Ray did a great job with my dog. They took her in on a short notice, sent plenty of picture updates, and allowed her to have plenty of play sessions with the other dogs throughout the day. They were very professional and experienced as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area.

Nate and Ray were awesome, really sweet, polite and welcoming to both us and our pups. Their dogs are friendly, sweet and as welcoming as Nate and Ray are. It was our first time leaving our pups with anyone other than my mom. We couldn't have been happier with choosing Nate and Ray. They sent us many pictures which kept us smiling throughout our vacation And Our pups looked like they were having so much fun! From swimming to trips to the dog park, they were loving it! We definitely plan on using them for any vacation we plan going forward. I think Luna and Lyla want us to consider their doggy day care! Thank you Nate and Ray! ????

Absolutely wonderful hosts! I have never felt so at ease leaving our dog while we're away. The house is immaculate, the pets are friendly, and Nate and Ray are exceptionally caring towards our four-legged family member. It's obvious that Stitch loves staying at their house since he can barely wait to jump out of the car when we pull into their driveway. It gives us such peace of mind knowing that he is well cared for and loved.

I was very worried for Shinobi because i had never left her with anyone other than well recognized friends and family, but with Nate amd Ray and their warm welcoming home, i left confident that she would be taken cared of, the daily pictures put my mind at ease, she was happy and healthy when i got her back, i highly recommend their services.

Nate & Ray put my mind at ease when I left Tomás and Spock with them. Everyday we looked forward to see their pics. Our pet's increased involvement in the daily activities and with Nate and Ray's pets made us truly happy. They were cared for and surrounded by a great group of pets. Having pets all my life, seeing Nate & Ray interact and comfort my boys showed me how intuitive, learned and how much they love pets. I highly, highly recommend them as pet sitters. Johan and I are forever grateful and will definitely contact them if our babes need sitters. I wish Nate & Ray the very best in life. I have them both in the highest regards.

Our girl, Domino (18 lbs Jack Russell) had the most incredible stay with Nate and Ray!!! My husband and I loved them!! Easy access off the hwy and super easy to work with..We would have them babysit again in the future again and again!!!
Nate and Ray once again went above and beyond all of our expectations! - they cared for our dear Woofy for the second time and she was incredibly happy from the moment we arrived at their home until being picked up. These guys are amazing and truly caring!!! :-)

They are the best!!! Refreshing, great sense of humor, immaculate home, wide open hearts for the love of rescues, animals, n people. After our meet and greet, I knew they were the 'ones' who would take the very best care of Dougall n Polly. What more could you ask for?

They were wonderful hosts. Molly had a great time and they took really good care of her. I couldn't be happier with their service and the way they treated my dog. I cannot recommend them enough. They even got her a little Christmas present :) Thank you for taking such a good care of my little girl!

Great experience from start to finish. I almost thought my dog wouldn't of want to come back home. Nate and Ray were a wonderful bunch very informative and took lots of pictures. Even at the end of gambit stay he got a little doggy stocking with toys a treats. Will definitely be staying again.

Great from start to finish. We have never had anyone except family take care of our dog Chloe but now that we are new to the area we gave DogVacay a try. I would recommend Nate and Ray 100%. During the time Chloe was with Nate and Ray we received updates and plenty of pictures. She was well taken care of.

Our 2 dogs had a great time at Nate & Ray's last weekend. We sincerely appreciated receiving all the great photos of them swimming, running, playing at the dog park, taking walks and just lounging. It is a huge relief to know the dogs are so well cared for when we travel. Thanks.

Our 2 dogs, an old hound and a young blue healer had a fabulous time with Nate & Ray. The dogs, of course, are an excellent judge of character and they both immediately accepted Nate & Ray as old friends. Ray sent adorable pictures of our dogs during the stay that showed my dogs swimming, playing, going to the park and snuggling at the end of the day. Nate & Ray were very conscientious, asking lot of questions about the dogs' needs and wants and then gave us a recap to make sure everything was right. Our blue healer actually ate while on his dog Vacay, which never happens. We will definitely book with Nate & Ray the next time we have to leave our dogs behind.

Best petsitter ever!! They make your pet's vacation better than yours! Nate & Ray treated our pet as their own. They spend so much time caring for and entertaining the pets, I can't imagine a better place. They are wonderful!
These guys are great - our dog always comes home happy after spending a couple of days with them. This is the second time she has stayed there and loved both trips. She's a high energy puppy and she came home nice and tired out from playing with all their dogs for the weekend.

Our experience with Nate and Ray exceded the great expectations we had already after checking their profile. These guys are amazing! - extremely caring, and dedicated to animals. We would not trust our beloved Woofy to anyone else :-)
Great as always thank you!
Nate and Ray were great with our Springer Spaniel, Chloe. We were able to schedule a meet and greet and once Chloe went to the spacious backyard, she was more comfortable. Although we could no see emails while we were away, it was definitely very nice to see tons of pictures of Chloe once we arrived from vacation. We definitely recommend Nate and Ray and will repeat if need be.

Nate and Ray have a beautiful, welcoming home. They took great care of Madeleine, kept me updated and posted lots of pictures. Excellent sitters!
We were glad to have Nate and Ray watch Karma on her vacation. They're dog lovers with a great place to care for our dog. We enjoyed getting photo updates of her stay and trips to the dog park.
These guys were terrific! Clean, loving home with other dogs for mine to play with. They even took her to the park and it smells like they gave her a bath. They sent me loads of pictures to ease my mind. Highly recommend!
Olyve is my sweet yellow lab of a certain age. She loves people and other dogs - and besides eating, she loves swimming. She had all of this at Nate's and Ray's lovely home. Nate and Ray are wonderful hosts: professional, responsible, compassionate. They posted beautiful photos of Olyve every day, and they were extremely responsive to my daily phone calls. The bottom line: Olyve LOVED it (she's still talking about her stay with them!!) Truly, a home away from home. I couldn't feel more secure knowing that Olyve was in such good care. With much confidence, I highly recommend Nate and Ray. They are PAWSOME!!

Nate And Ray were awesome.... Both Millie and Spuds had a good time and got much-needed socialization with NEW dogs. They have a clean home and yard which is something that was important to me. You can tell immediately that the dogs felt comfortable around them. Receiving photos of the dogs while we were away was an added bonus, allowing us to relax. I would definitely use them again. Good people, sweet house dogs and they did everything they said they would.

I can't say enough about Nate and Ray. Simply put AMAZING sitters!!! They were very loving with Karma and she seemed to have a blast. I got multiple picture updates daily and they treated her like one of their own. They went swimming with her and she had many friends to play with during her stay. I highly recommend Nate and Ray to anyone. I have found my go to sitters while I'm away. Thank you both for loving my baby they way I would!!!

Our puppy had a great time staying over the weekend and came back nice and exhausted, in a good way. Would recommend and use Nate and Ray again to watch her.
These guys are awesome. I only had a couple hours of notice and they accepted. Dobby had a great time playing and running with Orion. They are clean and responsible, nice house for the 'kids' to run around. Now I know where to leave Dobby next time :)

Our dog Lola had a fantastic time staying with Nate. They have 4 very friendly dogs, a swimming pool and plenty of area for the dogs to run and get tired. They are very attentive and sent many pictures of her having a great time. We are very pleased with the overall experience and will definitely consider them in the future.
