Kathy is the greatest! She is easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. She allowed me a meeting prior to the vacay stay and it was very apparent that she knows and loves animals! She allowed me to have a worry free vacation and my spoiled Yorkie is a handful. She kept in touch by text and pics which was a nice touch. She has a great background and can juggle several dogs effortlessly.

Kathy is wonderful to work with. Ellie and Ginger were happy pups during the entire stay. Kathy sent loads of photos and messages to keep us up to date. Booking was easy. We love Kathy and Dogvacay! Beth and Bill
Kathy is amazing and took great care of our pups. She was very flexible with pickup/dropoff and I love the fact that she has a veterinary background. I highly recommend her if you are flying in/out of Savannah or live in the Rincon area!
Kathy did a great job! My puppy looked so happy when I picked him up.
My wife and I could not be happier. Kathy does more than provide a place for pups to stay. She provides a home away from home. This was our first time using dogvacay, Kathy was responsive and open to questions and requests. Kathy is easy going and very reassuring. When we got our dogs back we could tell they were happy and well cared for. We will definitely be back! Amazing! Thanks Kathy.

Titus had a great time playing with Kathy's dogs. She was great in keeping me informed while he was away with pictures and a video. I will definitely use her services again in the future.
We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We've used kennels in the past which never met expectations so when I heard about DogVacay we gave it a shot. Kathy was AWESOME! Best of all, our dog enjoyed it as well. I know this because Kathy sent pics and vids everyday. It was great! We will certainly request Kathy again in the future.

Kathy was simply amazing! She kept our 9 week old Dalmatian for a night while we were vacationing in Savannah and I couldn't have felt more at ease! Her positive energy was contagious and my little Ljubav felt right at home. Her dogs are adorable and friendly, we fell in love with Murphy??! If you're in the area and looking to give your dog a vacation, I wouldn't hesitate to book with Kathy!

We loved Kathy, our pup loved Kathy! I actually got to go on vacation and didn't worry one bit about the care of our Monster. Kathy knows her dogs. She sent us photos of Monster so that made me rest at ease. Just perfect.
This was the first time my boys stayed with Kathy and I was concerned because of the fragile nature of my oldest dog. But Kathy welcomed us into to her home for a site visit and after spending some time talking with her, I was assured that this was going to be a safe and happy place for them. They stayed with her for more than two weeks while I travelled and I received updates of their stay. When I picked them up they were happy to see me but seem to have truly acclimated themselves to living with Kathy. My youngest is looking forward to a play date.

Kathy watched our babies while on vacation and I will never use anyone else. I was so worried about my babies staying with someone, but no more. If you want to go on vacation and have a great time knowing your babies will be taken care of, call Kathy!! She was loving, caring and also communicated by sending us awesome pictures of our babies during our vacation. No need to worry or be concerned about anything! Whether it's a day away or a week, your babies will be in EXCELLENT care with Kathy and her husband. She welcomes them like they are her own, and I think Bo and Daisy love her more than us now! That's how much they was loved and taken care of while we was gone. Also her home is spotless and beautiful!! Don't use anyone else- use Kathy as your dogvacay! You will be glad you did! O.H.

This was our first time using dogvacay and I'm glad we did. Kathy made our experience great. I was nervous at first but she's gained my trust now. Kathy is a sweet person who loves dogs. We were looking for a dog sitter at the last minute and she was kind enough to open her home to my puppy Bella. She sent us some pictures through out her stay and was really flexible with our schedule. Bella was able to make new friends and the best thing about this is that she didn't have to stay couped up in a kennel all day. This will be Bella's home away from home!

Kathy was just wonderful with Gilbert. He really stresses out when he dosent have attention but he did just great with all Kathy's attention. He normally is not ever alone,my mom is 90 and stays with him.He usually doesn't eat when I go out of town,but he was eating for her. Her boxer was awesome. Gilbert is usually aggressive towards large dogs, but with Murphy being so calm, they got along just fine. I loved the way she was so careful about putting up dogs before opening the door(Gilbert likes to escape) and I felt so 'at ease' with him being there. of course, she sent me pics which was nice.I took his pillow and she said he didn't need it cause he slept on hers lol I think he actually missed her and her crew after he got settled at home. I would def recommend her to anyone and will use her again. Nice neighborhood and house and yard clean and neat. I have already recommended dogvacay and Kathy to a couple of friends . The price is awesome also. My mom and I felt very happy to leave Gilbert(my yorkie terrier,mostly a terrier,) with her. thanks for your awesome service.

This was a great Stay. Easy to schedule, easy to pick up and drop off. She was very willing to work around my schedule even though it was a holiday. LOVED her.
Kathy is the best dog sitter I've ever had the pleasure to work with.
She was kind and caring to my dog and kept me posted through photos throughout the stay.

She is certainly a dog lover and makes sure her visitors are comfy and cared for.

Thank you Kathy! You're the best!

What a great experience...Kathy is wonderful, as are her pets...she was a great caregiver to our "baby" and sent us photos and updates often. We were comfortable knowing she was safe and cared for by a kind and sincere caregiver. We recommend Kathy very highly.

Lucy had a great time. It's the only time she has been away from us, she is now more cofidant around other dogs.
Great experience! Would use again! Thanks for your flexibility.
Kathy was great with our 3 furbabies. We aren't able to kennel one of our pups, as she makes herself sick. So we need to ensure they are with someone who treats them like they are treated at home, as part of a family. Kathy did just that, and we will definitely use Kathy again when we go out of town and need a furbaby sitter.

Kathy was absolutely wonderful!! She was so extremely welcoming towards us and our dog and made me feel so comfortable leaving my dog Bae in her care. I LOVED how she understood our nervous/anxious dog and was so patient with him and knew how to make him feel comfortable. My dog and I really enjoyed our time with her and will be back to visit real soon. Thank you again for the amazing experience! You truly are a wonderful host!

Kathy always does an outstanding job of babysitting my baby, Robert Lee! She is very loving, and caring to my boy, and I can always rest and enjoy myself when I am on vacation. I will continue to use Kathy's service's as long as she is available, and I would recommend her to anyone needing a trusted, and reliable dogsitter.

Kathy was prompt in responding and very accommodating with drop off/ pick up times. I would probably cancel a trip if I were not able to leave my little guy with Kathy and her family. I might accuse her of spoiling Walt if he weren't already spoiled when I drop him off! He loves to spend time with Murphy and Claire..

Kathy was a wonderful host for our little man. She sent regular pictures so we could keep up with what he was doing. He had a great time. I would definitely recommend Kathy as a host.
This was my first experience with DogVaCay and Kathy. Let me start by saying I don't leave my Jesse with anyone except my sister because he's my heart! But he has a few quirks that require extra attention:) he's also not very sociable because he's not around others often. Well he did great with Kathy and she was awesome with him!! He got along with her animals great and I could tell he felt comfortable. Her home was clean but very doggy friendly. I would recommend her to anyone!! Thanks again Kathy
Xoxo,
Mom and Jesse

My 1 yo rat terrier, Oliver, had the time of his life with Kathy. I was nervous as I have never left him for more than a few days before (he was with Kathy 11 days) but she made me feel at ease by providing text and picture updates daily. In fact, I think Oliver was sad to come home! I 100% recommend and will definitely use Kathy again!

Everything went very smoothly from the meet and greet through our fur babies vacay with Kathy and her sweet pack. Kathy is very warm and knowledgeable, and Jinx and Jasper seemed to really enjoy their stay. We certainly would recommend Kathy and will be using her in the future.

Once again, Kathy did not disappoint in providing the best of care for our family pet, Rapunzel when we left town for an overnight stay. Kathy is so loving towards Rapunzel...she even allows our pooch to share her bed during overnight stays! I am confident in the care that Rapunzel receives when she is being boarded at Kathy's. Kathy has been a Godsend for this pet-loving family!

This was my first time using a Dog Vacay provider and I'm so happy that Kathy's home was the host home for our dog, Rapunzel. Knowing we were going to be away for more than 5days made me determined to leave our pet with someone that would make her feel as safe and comfortable as possible. Kathy and her family pets did all of that and more! I was so pleased with her professional expertise of animals, as well as her loving and nurturing demeanor when we first met. Her dogs were especially gentle with Rapuzel. I knew immediately Rapunzel would be just fine with Kathy. She kept me updated on Rapuzel's activities with pictures and texts. Before I dropped my pet off to Kathy, I couldn't find Rapuzel's regular brand of dog food at the store. Kathy told me not to worry, that she would make sure Rapuzel received the right food during her stay. That was what sold me on Kathy's authenticity. Will use her again and again. Thanks, Kathy!!!

Only praises for Kathy and how well Bailey did with a new situation
Bailey is a shelter rescue who does not trust people. Kathy did a tremendous job socializing her and sent pictures of Bailey with her dogs and sitting in her husband's lap. What progress!
Kiki had a wonderful stay with Kathy, her husband and her 2 dogs. She was well taken care of, just like Kathy's own dog. Her house is spotless clean and no worries. We were able to enjoy our vacation while Kiki stayed with her. We strongly recommend and will definitely return if we visit Savannah again.

Bailey is a rescue dog and does not take well to strangers. Because of her bad experience at a shelter I didn't want to leave her at a kennel. Kathy had Bailey 4 paws up getting a belly rub within a few minutes. Bailey did not mix readily with Kathy's dogs but she had her own guest bedroom with her own pillow from home, a fenced in yard and never missed a meal. While at the shelter she had stopped eating, not a problem at Kathy's. Already planning vacay #2.

Kathy is amazing! Never had a moment's worry and felt like my pup Gizmo was staying with family. Highly recommend Kathy to any dog owner!
Boarding with Kathy insures a carefree vacation. I had no doubts that my little guy was getting the best of care. My only concern was that he might not want to leave his new friends Claire and Murphy and a fenced yard to run freely!
Kathy was flexible with us regarding drop off and pick up. This was a huge help since we were from out of town. Dixie was immediately comfortable when we dropped her off and seemed the same when we picked her up,

Knowing she was well taken care of was a great peace of mind for our family!
