We have raised and loved animals all of our lives. We own a very special Ole English Sheep dog that loves everyone including dog and cats. We own a photography and music business in Roswell. Our pet guests are treated as family and are treated like royalty. We have a beautiful fenced in back yard and also a special dog run and dog hotel in our back yard. We are in a very beautiful neighborhood that is safe and secure. Each night, we walk our dogs during sunset in order to get them good exercise and visual stimulation.

Very friendly family. Their older son was with my 2 dogs all day. I would definitely use them again.
Must admit that I was a bit hesitant at first due to having a rescue and leaving it alone with a total stranger. That being said, I was completely wrong. He was happy and I was kept informed on how he was doing. I felt that he was cared for the whole time and even had more energy when I took him home. I will use the service again but only if I can use Ed and Kathy.

Kathy was amazing! Dogs came back super happy and sleepy from all the fun! Would definitely book with them again
Our dogs had a great time, and came home ready for a nap! We are happy with the experience, and would definitely consider boarding them with Ed and Kathy again!
Ed and Kathy were super polite and really patient with my dog. He was a little anxious about me leaving. They made me feel comfortable leaving him.
Ringo had a great time. There was no problem when we dropped him off and we were able to pick him up right on time. He was happy and looked good when he came home.
Ed and Kathy were wonderful! They were so helpful when we needed care for our puppy last minute. We would use them again if we ever venture to Roswell. Your dogs will feel right at home here.
Great people! Took good care of our puppy while we did tourist stuff!!
Great service! Loved receiving updates telling me how my dog was doing!
Ed and Kathy were great!
Piper has only stayed with family until this time. I was very reluctant about her staying with someone she didn't know as we had just lost our other corgi and Piper has exhibited some nervousness around other dogs. We went to meet Kathy and Ed and Piper seemed to take right to them. She was not sure about PJ but after a few minutes she even seemed fine with him.
Fast forward to the next Saturday. We had to leave town by 8:30 and Kathy said no problem so we took Piper over to get settled in. The night before we had gone to Petco to get treats and toys for her and PJ and she went in and jumped up on the couch and acted like she was the queen of the castle. During the week I called and Kathy said they had even kept a couple of other dogs and Piper did great with them. I would recommend Kathy and Ed to anyone as they were awesome with Piper. She even slept in their room in her kennel. Piper was very happy to see us when we got back but I could tell she had been very happy with them also! It isn't often that you find someone that you trust with your furry baby but I am so glad we found Kathy and Ed!

Ed and Kathy were fabulous. Our pups loved them immediately and the were very well taken care of. I would recommended them to anyone who needed their pups cared for. We will definitely use them again.
Ed and Kathy were great! My 2 dogs seemed to have a great time and came definitely came back tired from all the fun they had in their yard and with their own dog. They were also extremely accommodating with our schedule. Would definitely recommend.

They are wonderful and I am pretty sure Izzy loved it. Will definitely use again if she needs a sitter.
Ed and Kathy are wonderful! Both of our dogs love to visit and have a great time. It is so nice to have a place to leave your dog where you know they are loved and cared for as you would at home. Thanks so much, it is truly appreciated!
Pratt loved it! They worked so well with my husband's work schedule, and we're looking forward to being able to have Pratt stay with them when we go back to Roswell.
They love my pup. He is so happy to go visit!
Ed and Kathy treated Jazz like Royalty, although my dog, at times, was less than deserving. We were away for 4 days, 3 nights and our past experiences with kenneling didnt go well as our pup wouldnt eat/drink and "mourned". Jazz traveled with them to their studio during the work day and slept with them at night. (We brought her bed as she does sleep on it beside our bed). However, we were advised she wouldn't quit whining until they allowed her at the foot of their bed. That, to me, is above and beyond what I expected, but shows the lengths of love and caring Ed & Kathy will go to in order to provide and care for your pawed family member. Jazz came home in good spirits, apparently well fed and nourished and was as energetic as ever.(That was not the case with kenneling). I am grateful Ed & Kathy are available in this area and were willing to show grace to my less than perfect pup. I am so grateful! Hats off to Ed & Kathy!

Ed & Kathy and their dog PJ are awesome! Little Tilly is easily frightened but she took to all them right away. She was so happy that I'm not sure she wanted to come home.
Our dogs love to go to Ed and Kathy's house. We always feel at ease when we know how well they are being cared for!!
It was so nice to know that we were leaving our dogs with such a wonderful family.
Super accommodating. Great service,
Ed and Kathy are amazing! And their big sheep dog is so friendly and well behaved, it was wonderful! They also took the booking at the last minute! Same day! Their photography studio is also just amazing, and beautiful!

We were traveling from Phoenix, to Roswell and back, and they helped us find the dog park and took Lakoda on a mile long walk to be sure he would be well exercised, he actually slept for about 5 hours in the car!

We would have had a horrible time doing this without their help, they are just so friendly and kind! They really made this trip wonderful!

Ed and Kathy started the reservation with one dog and ended up keeping two -- without a moment of hesistation. My 11 yr old dog has not seen the inside of a kennel since she was adopted at 1 yr old. My Mom's 2 yr old recent rescue is scared of everything. So we were really thankful to find an in home pet sitter in our area. Ed, Kathy and PJ made both girls feel at home and loved. They both seem to be missing their morning game of tag with PJ -- even tho he is probably 4 times their size. Will definitely call them again if the need arises. Thanks so very much to the Dog Vacay site and Ed & Kathy!

I knew immediately when I met Ed and Kathy that Zoe would be well cared for. She became a part of their family, at home and work, and their dog PJ is sweet and gentle. A great experience and a relief to know that their service is available.

Thanks Very Much,
Jim Childress

It was our first time using this service and I was nervous up until the moment I met Kathy. Her calm assurance left me at ease. Ed left us with the same feeling and I think in the end I was more concerned with our dog Henry behaving than any questions about Kathy and Ed. Robert picked Henry up on his own 4 hours later and had a chance to speak to them both for a little longer. A wonderful couple. We would recommend them to anyone who needs a pet sitter. I was able to really enjoy our visit to the museums in town knowing Henry was in good hands.
Many thanks again to them both.
Heidi and Robert
