About Sonny

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When your dog stays with us, your fur-baby gets to be a part of our home. We do not “Kennel” board so your puppy is free to roam our 3-bedroom home and to walk with us in parks that are just a block away!

Your dog’s experience is tailored to their needs, treated as if they were one of our very own pets. We are also very careful not to “over book” in order to make sure each dog get top quality care when they are staying with us.

Just like one of the family or a very special guest!

Sonny is great! Dependable, responsive, nice and caring. We have taken our dear Maíz there a couple of times and it all goes very well. We rely on them for future Dogvacays!
Michelle and Sonny took great care of our 12 year old beagle in our home. This was the first time we've had anyone outside of immediate family take care of her, so I was a bit unsure, but after five days she was healthy and happy, they gave her her medications and everything. The daily photos were nice to get, made us feel better. Our home also was in the exact same condition as when we left it, too, so that was very nice. Great people, we'll for sure be hiring them again to look after our old pup.

Sonny really helped me out of a bind. I had a dog sitter cancel on short notice and he was happy to accept my pup. They took great care of Akvon and sent me a bunch of updates while he was there.
Sonny and his wife were amazing with our high maintenance pups! Even our dog that shys away from people loved them! Our flight was delayed and they were so laid back about the whole pick up time changes.
Sonny & Michelle took good care of our girl Molly! It was our first time leaving her and we were so nervous - they helped make us feel comfortable with a meet and greet prior to booking, and kept us up to date about how she was doing with them. They were always available to answer our texts when we checked in on her. We'll certainly book with them again and would recommend them to others!

Sonny and Michelle are awesome! Took amazing care of our dog! Great service ! Thank you again guys!!
Seamless service. Very friendly people that gave me a peace of mind while I was away from my pooch.
Picture updates were great. We can tell our pooch had a great time. We will definitely leave Hachi with Sonny again!
Thank you Sonny!
Kane had a great time vacationing with Sonny and friends. We know how much of a handful he can be at times, but we felt really good about leaving Kane with Sonny and felt confident that Sonny would handle him with the perfect balance of discipline and TLC. We also appreciated the occasional check-in and picture while we were away!

Sonny and his wife were great doggy hosts! They were very accommodating with our last minute booking. We enjoyed the picture and text updates as well. Definitely would leave the dogs with them again.
Lots of updates and Pepper seemed in good hands, also dogs are never left alone. Will use again if out of town.
Sonny & Michelle have no lack of good reviews, but here's another one. They willingly took care of our (very large) Great Dane, who seems to have had a great time with them. They are very experienced with dogs, are pleasant to deal with, and fair in their pricing. Highly recommended!

We had our dog Shaggy stay at Sonny's for a few days late March. Shaggy had a great stay and made lots of new friends. Sonny provides a safe and comfortable environment, and seemed to connect well with Shaggy. We highly recommend Sonny and would not hesitate to send Shaggy over for a few days again!

Sonny was wonderful with our 3 month old German Shepherd Puppy. It was difficult to find someone to stay at our home over the holidays, but Sonny was able to make it work. Sonny stayed at our house for 4 nights to take care of our puppy. Sonny was great about communication and stayed in contact with us while we were away to let us know how our puppy was doing. When we got home from our trip our puppy was happy and healthy, with no new bad habits. Our house was left in the exact same condition we left it in. I would very highly recommend Sonny to care for your puppy while you are away. We were extremely happy with the service.

Ender was very happy upon coming home from his vacation. This was his first vacation so he took a day or two to readjust, but he seemed more confident and even learned to play with some of his puzzle toys he'd been too nervous to use before.

Pickup and dropoff services were prompt and convenient. Sonny and Michelle were very kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend them to ours friends!

Sonny C. was great! He was professional, reliable, friendly, and courteous. He sent us just the right amount of updates and pics while we were away. Our lab, Duke, came home tired out and happy! We will definitely be using Sonny as our go-to dog sitter for our next trip. We're so glad that we found him!
