Carlos was great friendly kind to me my dog was happy to see pictures a couple times a day of what they dogs were up to and the family i was visiting loved them as well Liked the special touch of a icture of my dog on a Thanksgiving day card
I am so happy with Carlos and Claudia's services. Ginger loves going to their house and meeting and playing with new friends. Since she is still a puppy, she is full of energy and loves to run around all day with her friends so that she comes home happy and tired. Her socialization skills have greatly improved and she can't wait to jump out of the car to spend the day at their house. I am so happy I found Carlos and Claudia and I am sure we will be visiting them for a very long time!

Our dog was well cared for and so happy! I was kept updated and received pictures and video everyday. Carlos was so accommodating when our planned stay had to be extended due to a death in the family. I definitely recommend and will be using them again!

Athena had a great time with Carlos and his family. We received pictures and videos of Athena playing and enjoying a lot. She is exhausted today, but 100% happy. We will definitely use Carlos's services again.
We left Gypsy with Carlos for four days and the experience was worry free! Carlos let Gypsy come see the place & meet other dogs he was watching prior to her stay to make sure she was comfortable. He has a really nice play area for the dogs out back . It made our vacation that much better to know that Gypsy was in Carlos's hands. We got text and picture updates which were awesome. Gypsy looked so happy & made other "doggy friends". Highly recommended!!

Carlos was great and my dog had a great time. I even had to make a couple of last minute time changes and Carlos was very accommodating.
Carlos and Claudia were absolutely wonderful! They sent pictures and video of my sweet fur babies everyday which made me very comfortable. His establishment is very clean and organized for the dogs staying overnight. I would highly recommend bringing your pet here with the comfort and confidence that they are in good hands. When time for pick up my babies were ready smelling fresh and looking fabulous in their bandanas. Thank you over a million times Carlos & Claudia! :)))

Great experience! Carlos and Claudia kept us posted all the time with great pictures and videos. Our dogs really enjoyed their stay! They are staying again for Thanksgiving :)
We have used Carlos five times now to watch Cosmo when we are traveling out of town and it is perfect every time. Very flexible on drop off/pick up times, keeps us updated with pictures and videos throughout the visit and Cosmo comes home exhausted and happy from playing with so many other dogs all weekend. Would definitely recommend Carlos for anyone needing boarding services in the Ft. Lauderdale area and we will continue to utilize him for our pet sitting needs!

Carlos and Claudia was great dog sitters for my shiba, Riggs. Carlos kept me informed everyday on how my pupp was doing. And he also included pics and videos which gave me great relief while we were away. They also had spa treatment with additional cost of course but they did a great job on Riggs. He looked great and he was a happy puppy when we saw him. I definitely will come back and use Carlos again!

Ultimate experience. My pup had lots of fun. Carlos kept us updated with daily pics. Him and his wife are the nicest people. This place shot up to my #1 spot for dog boarding.
New to Florida I hadn't established a dog sitter yet so I was a little nervous to leave my dog for the weekend. Carlos helped me out with a last minute request for weekend boarding. He was very responsive before and during my dog's stay. I felt at ease during the Meet & Greet and when I dropped her off the morning of. Throughout her stay I got pictures and videos daily of my dog exploring the large backyard. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing doggy daycare, pet sitting or grooming. Carlos does it all! Thank you for putting my mind at ease and having an enjoyable experience for my dog.

Carlos respomded inmediately to our need for a caring, secure and well maintained boarding service for our PeeWee. Puntual and reliable, keep us informed via pictures and timely texts. Moreover, he provided us with additional grooming services at very competitive fee. Complete service, we will use their services again and recommend for others to try them, won't be disappointed.

This was the best experience we had with Carlos and his wife! From communication before, during and at pickup.. they kept our little puppy engaged and happy paying around with the other pups.. HIGHLY recommend them for your puppy sitting.. OH.. THEY ALSO DO GROOMING!! :D..

Carlos and Claudia are awesome! Kind hearted and knowledgeable about dogs and how to make them comfortable and happy. Most of all they are patient and accommodating. It was hard picking the right place to take our puppy Copper, who is new to our home and still adjusting, they made it an easy and good choice for us. Will definitely use their services again

Carlos was very friendly and took great care of our dog.
We feel so fortunate to have found Carlos and his family. We were out of town for 5 days (most we've ever left our pup without them being with family) and felt so comfortable. We received pictures throughout the entire day and they were always playing! When she left, she was groomed by his wife who did a fantastic job. He never took longer than 10 minutes to respond to a message. About to book our next stay there for our girl. If you're looking for someone who treats your pups like their own and genuinely cares about them, do yourself a favor and book Carlos!

We were very lucky to have found Carlos to take care of our 14 year old Dachsund and 3 year old Black Lab mix. As soon as we met him and saw his place we were impressed and at ease. He did a great job with them for the week we were on a cruise - his daily updates of photos and videos let us know that they were in very good hands. I can highly recommend Carlos and plan on using him again in the future.

I couldn't be happier with the way Butch was treated while he vacationed with Carlos and his family. Both Carlos and Claudia are very loving toward the animals who stay with them. I was relaxed and comfortable my whole vacation knowing that Butch was being well cared for. Everyday Carlos sent me pictures of Butch out playing with his new friends, or playing in the water (his favorite!), and I could tell he was a happy boy. I am already booking for Christmas to make sure that Butch will be safe while I am on my trip.

We are repeat customers. Seeing all the dogs during drop off an pick up makes me feel at ease knowing so many pet parents trust Carlos and his wife.
Carlos was a great host. I was constantly updated with pictures and info on my dog so it never seemed to be far away.
I also used their grooming services since Carlos' wife is a groomer and I have to say I am really pleased.
I will for sure bring my dog next time.
Thanks Carlos for all your good work!

We interviewed multiple people and Carlos was our favorite! We received so many awesome pictures every single day our 2 dogs. We will be using Carlos every time we vacation!
Carlos was a great host and he took great care of our hyper pup Mia. He sent us pictures and videos every day and at the end of her stay when she came home she was super relaxed and happy. I would definitely book with him again. I highly recommend!
Carlos and his wife were great with our dogs! I always get so nervous leaving them somewhere new but, Carlos did a great job of reassuring me by sending me lots of pictures and videos! He was very responsive in communication and I would definitely leave our babies there again for them to watch! Thank you!

So glad we booked with Carlos! Very professional -he always responded quickly to my questions. No issues what so ever and would gladly book again! I loved seeing photos daily -great way to reassure us that things were going well! Worth every penny for piece of mind ! Thanks again !

Pika Brew's experience at Carlos' was wonderful!

Carlos communicated with my husband and I throughout the whole stay and sent lots of pictures! We felt so happy and comfortable having her stay there!
Pika Brew can't wait to go back!

Carlos was excellent. He kept me updated with pictures and videos of my dog. His place was setup nicely to keep my dog safe and comfortable.
This was our first time ever leaving our (almost) 7 year old dog with anyone that was not an "everyday" family member, and from the start Carlos and his family were very reassuring. They gave us a walk through of the animal's areas, which was very well done, and explained their system. This is their Full Time job. They kept a constant communication with us on the status of our dog, which was very comforting, and BONUS! they are groomers as well, so for a small additional fee you can have your pup pampered while he/she is there too! I get my dog groomed regularly, and have never seen as good of a job as I did when I picked my dog up. She almost didn't want to come home, she was having so much fun! We have already made plans for her to stay with Carlos and his family again, this time with our friend's dogs too!

Carlos and his wife are absolutely the best! I was very nervous about leaving Gizmo. It was his first time ever being away from me for more than a day! Carlos sent me pictures at least twice a day! Gizmo seems like he had a great adventure. I will definitely use this couple again...they love dogs!!

Carlos is definitely as good as it gets. Him and his wife are amazing with the dogs. We definitely will be using him again. A++++
Carlos is the best! He sent me numerous pictures every day. He has a great set up for dogs in his backyard. I will definitely be using him again.
Carlos and his wife are purrfectly pawsome!!! They took great care of my 2 canine babies and sent me awesome pictures of my babies having fun! I am so happy that we found these wonderful sitters/puppy caretakers. We will definitely use there services again. Including their excellent grooming services. My babies looked and smelled great!

We could not be happier with Carlos and his wife! This isn't something they do on the side, this is what they do and they do it very well! The entire property is set up for dogs.... the back yard is very well groomed with rock paths, "human" furniture that is only for dog use and a small dog bone shaped dipping pool. The inside is spotless .. how they do it with so many dogs I do not know, but the dogs enjoy a/c on hot days and comfortable sleeping rooms with beds and blankets. AND!! They are professional dog groomers and good ones! All my dogs received a spa day Friday and they came home looking so handsome and pretty. When I found Carlos and his wife it was like finding Nirvana! My Hope loves it so much she jumps out of the car on her home and runs for the gate. She goes to doggie daycare weekly. Our other (2) dogs go for grooming and overnights when we travel. They are very affordable too -- not just the dog sitting but also the grooming. They are an amazing, dog loving couple and I would recommend them to anyone! We can't say enough!

Carlos did such a good job taking care of my two dogs. He kept us updated with pictures and we were happy to see the dogs having such a good time. I will recommend him to anyone who wants their dogs in good hands.
I'll definitely leave our dog with Carlos again. He sent us pictures every day! Thank you!!!
We are happy to report that our dog Finn had the best time with hosts Carlos and Claudia.

We received daily text updates from Carlos (along with amusing comments!), pictures and a video of Finn happily romping around the generous indoor and outdoor spaces with his new buddies Taffy, Achilles, Batman and others.

It is such a relief to be able to leave town for vacation for over a week and know your pal is having as good (or better) time as you are.

Thanks Carlos and Claudia for taking such great care of Finn. We look forward to bringing him by again in the future.

Carlos is a super host. He accommodated my changing schedule with patience, met me with a smile for drop-off and treated my dog like his own. Frequent photo and video updates were excellent and at the end of the stay my dog returned just like his normal happy self. Highly recommended.

Carlos and his family did such a wonderful job watching over my dog. I am very protective of her and was nervous leaving her for the weekend, but Carlos did a fabulous job. HIs yard has plenty of room for dogs to run around, and the best part - they have a dogbone-shaped swimming pool for the pups! He kept me constantly updated through the time I was gone by sending me pictures, which really put my fears to ease. I appreciate everything that he did and would recommend anyone looking for an overnight pet sitter to book with him. Thanks again Carlos!!!!!!

Carlos and Claudia took excellent care of our two huskies! They are clearly dedicated to their business and they are organized and professional...but most importantly, they made me feel comfortable and confident with leaving my dogs with them. It is clear that they know the ins and outs of taking care of various breeds in order to keep them happy and safe! Their home and yard are set up perfectly for doggy guests, and they even have a system of gates in place for safety. Carlos sent lots of pictures and videos each day. I would definitely re-book with them and I recommend them to anyone needing a dog sitter!

I was looking for a sitter not a boarder for my dog and I found that with Carlos and his wife. They have really dedicated themselves to being full-time caregivers and even made their home a dog friendly environment. Definitely will be a repeat guest.
Carlos was outstanding. I left my 9 year old male boxer with him for about 10 days. I would get daily photos to see how my dog was doing. As a frequent traveler, it is important that I find a place to leave my dog where he is at peace and enjoys his stay. Carlos provided an incredible environment where all dogs are frequently interacting in a playful manner. He also does not use cages which is fantastic as opposed to the typical kennel. I will be using Carlos with every trip from here on out.

Carlos and Claudia were everything I was looking for - dog lovers who would take care of my pup the same way (or even better) than I would. Lola, my 7mo old Golden Retriever, stayed with Carlos and Claudia for 2 days and 1 night. Throughout that time they made sure to keep me updated with pictures and videos on how and what Lola was doing. She arrived home very happy and so did I. We'll be back!

Carlos and Claudia are amazing. I cannot imagine taking my fur baby to a typical kennel after our experience here. Their house is dedicated to giving their dogs the best time possible. Their backyard is a puppy paradise with more than enough activities to keep the doggies entertained. This really is something you need to see to believe. The dogs are not crated, which I love, but they do have gates/fences to separate larger dog areas from the smaller ones. I also love that they limit the number of dogs they will watch at a time so that they are able to give their guests plenty of attention. Carlos and Claudia have a true passion for dogs. This is hard to find and is very comforting when leaving such a valued family member in a new place. Finally, Carlos updated us multiple times a day on our pup's activities via pictures and video. We will definitely be booking with this couple again!!!

Carlos did an excellent job! I've never boarded my dog before so I was very nervous how he would do. But he did great! He even made some friends! We will definitely be back!
Carlos and Claudia were amazing! They took care of my 2 dogs- 10yr old Puggle and 3 1/2 yr old beagle - for 5 days like they were their own!
My puppies were so happy and well taken care of!
I didn't worry about a thing while they were there .
i will definitely take my dogs back again !!
Read More...
I don't have anything negative to say and my babies seemed to enjoy their stay so i would use them again thank you
It is so hard to find a safe, comfortable place to leave a pet you love while you are away, so I am so very grateful to have found Carlos & Claudia. They run their dog care service with the efficiency of a business but the care and comfort of family.

I picked my happy pug up CLEAN and WELL taken care of. I expected safe and comfortable boarding but what I received was so much more!!!

I can't thank them enough. :)

Cosmo is very skittish around new people, but with a household of dogs this was a perfect location to leave him. Having plenty of dogs to play with Cosmo was at ease and looked like he enjoyed his stay here. Carlos was very flexible with meet and greet times as well as drop off and pick up allowing my brother to come grab him at a convenient time for us. Carlos sent us pictures all day and night while we were away which really made it easier for us knowing he was safe and having a good time with the other dogs in his secure and locked backyard. I will definitely use their services again and recommend them to anyone needing somewhere for their dogs to stay while vacationing!

Our Ace stayed with Claudia and Carlos for two weeks. It was the first time we've ever used DogVacay and our experience was better than we expected! We received tons of photos and videos from Carlos (and we could tell Ace had a blast playing with other dogs or running around their spacious backyard). On the last day Ace was fully groomed by Claudia - extra cost but totally worth it. They also took him to the vet because he bit a frog - luckily not a poisonous one, but we were extremely pleased and grateful for their quick reaction and for making sure Ace was ok. Overall Carlos and Claudia are experienced and responsible hosts, easy to communicate with and very friendly!
Read More...
Amazing amazing people!! My fur baby had a wonderful and fun time and I will most definitely be using Carlos's services again in the near future !
This is the first time we've used DogVacay and our dog Lincoln was taken care of as if he were part of the family. Carlos and his wife have a house just for the dogs and you can tell they love what they do. All the dogs seem happy and well taken care of. Carlos sent me daily pictures of Lincoln making new friends and playing outside. I also chose the option for Lincoln to have a bath and when we picked him up, he was smelling fresh and clean! I would highly recommend Carlos to my friends and family!
Read More...
Definitely it was a pleasure leaving Mia with Carlos and his family. He kept me posted in everything that Mia was doing and how well she behaved with the other dogs that were boarding at the same time. What I love the most was seing Mia running around as she was at home. Thank you Carlos for allowing me to have a great vacation without worring about Mia.....

Carlos was very responsive to any questions and he posted pic and videos to me every day and sometimes even twice a day. My Bella was healthy and happy upon pick-up. I would definitely use Carlos again and would absolutely recommend him.
Carlos and Claudia were excellent! I was very nervous to leave my dogs for the first time while I went out of town. They were very attentive to both me and my pups. Carlos sent plenty of pictures of the pups playing and also sent some videos. This made my vacation so much more enjoyable knowing they were being cared for in such a special way. They were exhausted from all the fun they had! Thank you so much Carlos and Claudia, we'll definitely be back!

Words cannot describe how happy I am to have found you guys! the way Troy came back home was amazing! he was EXHAUSTED, which it means that he didn't stop playing the entire time he was there. The updates with pictures was amazing, videos, communication is perfect. the response to your concerns is almost instantly. The love that Carlos and Claudia demonstrated towards Troy was as if Troy was theirs. I have nothing else to say then just Thank You for all you did for my little boy. I have found his second home for sure.
Read More...
Stop! Look no further! You have just found the best dog sitter in the South Florida area!

Our dog Troy has been used to staying with DogVacay hosts since he was just about 4 months old. We have tried several hosts out; all were good but not comparable to this one. :)

Our experience was phenomenal. We left Troy for just around 12 days and everyday we received several pictures and a few videos showing how much fun he was having. I knew he would be in good hands.

Furthermore, what you see in pictures is what you get. This home is made for dogs to enjoy and without a doubt they will come home happy and exhausted. They even have a doggy pool if your pup enjoys playing in the water!

Also, the setup of the home is quite safe for your pet. There are gates everywhere so no need to worry about any unforeseen incidents of them escaping or running out.

So look no further and give these wonderful hosts a try! :) We will definitely be repeat guests.

I'm so glad that I found the best dogcare! Carlos and Claudia are very friendly and took a great care of my dog Bella. They send me pictures of Bella's activities throughout the day and she had great time with her new fur friends! I recommend to family and friends to take their dogs to Acuarela dog house & hotel!

Very satisfied with the service. I needed to go away for the weekend and was looking for a safe and affordable stay for my pet. I'm glad I found the right place. Carlos and their hostess pet "Bruno" gave us a warm welcoming and a tour. Every day I received pictures and videos of my Tobi enjoying and playing with her new friends, it was wonderful! Claudia's grooming services were excellent too, when I picked up Tobi she looked great! I will definitely recommend Acuarela Dog House to my family and friends. Thank you guys!!

CARLOS AND FAMILY ARE GREAT DOGGIE HOSTS. OUR DAISY HAD SUCH A GOOD TIME SHE DIDN'T WANT TO COME HOME. BRUNO THE CANINE HOST WAS GRACIOUS AND HELPED DAISY GET ACCUSTOMED TO HER NEW ENVIRONMENT AND OTHER DOGGIE GUESTS. CARLOS HAS A WAY OF GETTING PICTURES OF MY DOG THAT I COULD NEVER GET. SHE ALWAYS TURNS AWAY FROM ME. I COULD TELL SHE WAS WELLED CARED FOR AND SHE HAD A GREAT TIME MAKING FRIENDS. SHE NEEDS A FEW DAYS TO RECOVER FROM ALL THE FUN. THEY ALSO DIDN'T FATTEN HER UP LIKE MY USUAL PRO BONO DOG SITTERS, LOL.

Amazing services!! Carlos was great!! Always sending updates and pictures of my dog. Great space for my dog to stay and play. Would recommend his services to anyone!!! Will definitely use again next time!!
My dog Charlie stayed with Carlos and Claudia for a week, and in the beginning I was nervous about leaving him behind as he's never been boarded before and he has a bit of separation anxiety... However from the first day that I dropped Charlie off, I felt like he was in the best possible care... Carlos sent me numerous pictures and videos everyday. Charlie was definitely having a great time and I was completely at ease that Charlie was in great hands! Carlos's home is literally set up for dogs, and has a great backyard with a doggie pool. They also never cage the dogs in kennels which was a really big deal for me. I highly recommend them, especially for the price, you get really great dog people loving your fur baby to pieces. Charlie has been home for 2 days and is STILL sleeping off all the fun he had !

Amazing place so friendly and loving
WOW!!! It was my first time going away and leaving my 4 months Yorkie... and I was very nervous about it. I have to say that Acuarela Dog House with Carlos catched my attention, and it was the best thing that happened. There is no way in the world that I can describe how confident and calm Carlos made me feel about leaving my puppy with them.

We went first for a meet and greet. The house is extremely clean and organized. They have a very nice backyard equipped with everything for your dog to have a great time. The house dog (Bruno) is very friendly. My puppy felt like home right away. Once I left, I received communications, pictures and videos as often as I asked for to see how my baby was doing. I must say, my puppy looked soooo happy in the videos and pictures that I was afraid he didn't wanted to come with me at the end of my trip LOL.

When I picked him up he was so happy, clean and good looking I was so pleased I left him with Carlos. It was definitely a home away from home.

I loveee it! my dog was happy all the time, they take care of him like they own... send me pictures everyday! I highly recommend!
This was the first time we left Fink anywhere, and it was an amazing experience! From the beginning, we knew our boy was going to be in good hands, Everyone was super friendly, the house was super clean and very well arranged for dogs; that definitely gave us peace of mind.
We loved the daily updates with all the pictures, and we know Fink had a really good time.
We will definitely go back to them when we need someone to watch our boy.
Thank you Carlos and Claudia for the love and care you gave our boy!

The is the BEST dog day care, boarding establishment/hotel that I have ever visited in Fort Lauderdale. Carlos and his family are warm, friendly and immediately made me and my husband comfortable in boarding my dog Eli for several days. Their home and yard are set up like a beautiful dog hotel; they even have a dog pool. Carlos sent pictures every day. Carlos and his family are true dog lovers and treated my dog Eli like family. When I picked up Eli, he was clean and smelled wonderful; I just wanted to continue to hold him all day. When I need someone to watch Eli, Carlos will be the first person I contact.

Amazing place to leave your dog or cat. Carlos and his wife are ssupr professionals and have so much love for animals. The place is very clean, safe and filled with lots of things for your pet to play with. I have an English Bulldog, and they really took amazing care of him. Definitely using them again.port

It is very clear that this family is serious about dog care and they have their entire house setup for the dogs and their backyard as well! We dropped off our dog and she immediately began exploring and having fun with the family beagel. They kept us up to date with lots of photos and she had lots of fun with the dogs and they even have their own pen to provide her. We also used their grooming service for a dog bath and it worked well! Definitely recommend as its like a vacation for your dog.

Absolutely Amazing! Already recommended to friends and family. Very clean and safe enviornment! Gentle and patient interactions dogs. Look forward to using services in the near future.
Both Carlos and Claudia were awesome to our dog Luther! I felt completely comfortable after our meet and greet to let our large dog stay with these VERY experienced pet lovers for a week. They sent me updates daily with photos of how Luther was doing, and I could tell when I picked him up at the end of our trip that he had a wonderful stay. Carlos and Claudia were accommodating to all of our requests and had even offered to drop Luther off. I couldn't of asked for better pet sitters, and this was my first experience ever on dogvacay.
