Mason LOVES to visit Steve and Tricia - they treat him like part of the family!
Steve & Tricia treated our dogs like their own. Our dogs were relaxed and happy when we picked them up. Thanks a million Steve & Tricia!
Tricia and Steve are wonderful, they treat all their Fur guests with so much love and care, just like their own babies. Thank you so much for awesome care of my 2 girls.
Wish I could give them 10 stars!!! Steve and Tricia are true animal lovers and the way they cared for our babies showed that love. We couldn't be happier. From the moment we met them at our initial meeting, our dogs fell in love with them. I felt completely secure in knowing that our precious babies were getting the best care. We received daily pictures and updates which was awesome - I was a little worried they wouldn't want to come back home!!!! We would highly recommend them, and would definitely use them again. Such a great feeling to know they in loving hands AND having fun. Thanks a million Steve and Tricia - your the best!!

We were worried trying someone new, but with the pictures Steve & Tricia sent, all of our phone calls, we quickly knew, our three furkids were well taken care of. Will definitely use their services again. Highly recommended.
Amazing! My Koda is always happy to go visit Steve and Tricia!!!
+This was our first visit with Steve and Tricia and it was awesome. They are so sweet and are die hard dog lovers. Aja seemed so happy and at home at their house. I loved the daily updates we received. I never worried about her one bit. We have upcoming travel plans and our little Aja will be back with Steve and Tricia for sure It was an excellent experience .

This was the first time Jax has been away from us. It made it a lot easier for us receiving daily photos of Jax. Steve and Tricia were very accomadating for pickup and drop off times. Jax came back worn out from playing and was super happy! Wouldn't take him anywhere else besides Steve and Tricia!

I would give them 10 stars!!!!!
Tricia and Steve are the best! Murphy came home happy and calm.We will never have to take our dog to a kennel again.thank you sue & tom
I have left my boys with Tricia and Steve many times since we first met. They always take wonderful care of my dogs. Rex and Lucky love to spend time with Belle and Liberty, explore the back yard for lizards or chill out on the recliner with Steve. I know that my boys are happy and well cared when they are with Steve and Tricia

AMAZING Experience! Steve and Tricia took my Koda into their home and made him feel just like he was at home. I received a picture each day. He has stayed at other locations before and has never come home in such good spirits! He is so happy and it is obvious that he was very well taken care! Cannot recommend them enough! We will be using them again!

Great experience as usual. This is my dogs 3rd visit with Steve and Tricia and they seem to like it more and more. Very nice people and the communication is great. They send me pictures throughout the visit so I can see that the dogs are doing well. Much appreciated.

Thanks

I left my 2 boys with Steve and Tricia over the Memorial Day weekend and they were wonderful! they were extremely accommodating with the drop off and pick up times I requested, sent great pics and updates thru out the entire weekend, my boys got to sleep wherever they wanted in the house, and got lots and lots of attention and play and snuggle time. when I picked them up Monday night, we got home and they were passed out within an hour and these 2 never tire out so that says a lot! I'm so thankful to have found these awesome people!! will definitely be leaving my boys with them again and in fact already have them reserved for another long weekend next month. so very, very pleased with the way they treated my boys.

Steve & Tricia took great care of our pup, Zoey! They spoiled her just enough, while still respecting our rules when requested. I really appreciated the fact that someone was home at all times, minus one hour each day. They provided us with a minimum of one photo daily and a quick check in. We felt very comfortable on our vacation knowing that our girl was in such good hands.

My boys seemed to have a good time while staying with Steve and Tricia. They bonded well, and Charlie claimed Steve as his human. I enjoyed the pictures showing me what the boys were doing. We'll book again...the boys were in good hands!!
Steve and Tricia treated my kids (dogs) has if they where their own. I have a specials needs dog that needs special attention because of the medication that she has to take. Steve and Tricia was so gracious that I felt so confident and secure to leave my kids (dogs) with them for the second time, and will continue to use them in the future.

They are excellent. I bring my German Shepherd over to their house every time I need a sitter. She is well taken care of and safe. I feel very comfortable with Steve and Tricia.
Steve and Tricia watched over our little 4 month old puppy, Jasmine while we were in Texas for the weekend. We were so nervous about leaving her because she had never been away from us before. Steve and Tricia sent us plenty of updates and photos. We were able to relax and enjoy our trip knowing she was well taken care of. Jasmine also enjoyed being around the resident dogs, Liberty and Bell! We will definitely use Steve and Tricia again! Thank you !!

Steve & Tricia are awesome people. They are very friendly. They sent pictures while we were away. Made us miss Riley even more! Riley made himself at home and enjoyed his stay. We will be using Steve and Tricia again in the future. No comparison to the other boarding kennels we have used in the past.

Steve and Tricia were wonderful. They had to care for an almost 11 year old and an 1 1/2 which is a wide range. The 1 1/2 needed to have medicine each morning after breakfast and Steve and Tricia made sure that Leo had his medicine each day.

Steve and Tricia sent pictures often that allowed me to see that Leo and Rosie were comfortable and well cared for. Those photos were great.

I would have my Leo and Rosie spend more vacay time with Steve and Tricia any time I go out of town.

We feel very confident leaving Ginger with Steve and Trisha. They treat her with loving care and send us the cutest pictures.
We absolutely adore Tricia and Steve! And I'm pretty Diesel might love them more than us now haha... They were such a delight from the meet-and-greet, in which we spent over an hour there with them. After having a nightmare of an experience the last time someone watched our dog, it was a breath of fresh air to meet two caring people who actually take the time and care to update you during your dogs entire vacay. With pictures of Diesel and the two lab brothers he spent the weekend with there, I felt secure that my dog was being cared for in a loving home. I will definitely be calling them again for our next trip. And I've already recommended them to friends. Thank you Tricia and Steve! Diesel was pooped for the next three days!

We have two very spoiled labs who demand a lot of attention. They are certainly a handful and Steve and Tricia handle the challenge with ease, treating them as their own. It is truly a vacation for the dogs too!! We can relax and not worry while we are out of town.

They were excellent and Ginger had a wonderful time. Sent us pictures and we knew she was in good hands.
Steve and Tricia took excellent care of Jordan for an entire week. This was her second time staying over, she knew right where the toys were and made herself at home in just a few minutes. Jordan got all her pills and meals prepared just like she was at home, and loved to go for walks and lay in her new found spots in the yard. Steve sent photos and updates on a regular basis. Steve and Tricia are very understanding and accommodating to the pet and the owners needs and provide a very low stress environment. I think Jordan really enjoyed her visit with them.

Steve and Tricia take care of my boys frequently and they are always pawsome! Lucky is quite anxious dog and he sometimes gets upset when I leave him with sitters, but never with Steve and Tricia. My dogs love to play with Belle and Liberty and their vacay is happy and stress free.

Thank you Steve & Tricia for taking care of Willie You made our vacation so much better for knowing he was in good hands. We received pictures & messages everyday and always a quick respond from you. You are a welcoming host and made Willie feel comfortable in your home. We feel like we have know you both for ever. We highly recommend you!!!!!! Thanks again.

Amazing job taking care of our chocolate lab izzy. Very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. She had room to run outside in a fenced in yard and was taken on several walks. Highly recommended!
These folks are the best... They truly love what they do and they are also great people to talk with. My dog not only enjoyed the meet and greet with Steve and Tricia, she also enjoyed her stay there. When I went to pick her up, she was happy, exited, tail wagging..etc. not only because I came back, but also because of the time she spent there. I already booked them for my trip in Sept!!!

Steve & Tricia came as a recommendation. They were very timely in their responses to my questions/concerns and we set up a meet & greet. I felt very comfortable leaving Sunny in their care. They sent me pictures of her throughout the week and contacted me when Sunny was having an issue with her ear, and Tricia even gave her a bath. Steve & Tricia definitely treated Sunny as if she were their own. I will definitely be using them again.

Another great visit for Daisy at her friends' house. Steve, Tricia, Liberty & Belle always welcome Daisy with open arms (& paws!). There is no one else we trust to watch her. We are so thankful for them!!
We are new to the area and wanted to take a little vacation. We just happen to run across the Dog Vacay site while searching for boarding places for our 3 pups. We decided to search the Dog Vacay site to see what it was all about. We found a few hosts in our area and read the reviews. We decided to check out Steve & Tricia's. I emailed them (through the Dog Vacay site), set up a meet & greet and was amazed at the response time. Within a few minutes we had set up a time (that same afternoon) for us to visit. All this was done on such a short notice we were unsure how it would all work out. Anyway, we took the pups over to meet Steve, Tricia, Mom, Liberty and Belle. Everyone was so very nice and accommodating. They really made us feel at home. You could tell the pups felt the same way! We ended up going on our vacation 2 days later and were very pleased to have our pups stay with Steve & Tricia. They kept in touch with us for the couple of days we were gone sending text messages and pictures. Everything was so, so simple using Dog Vacay! We were truely amazed! We would highly recommend Steve & Tricia and will definitely use them again! Thanks again Steve, Tricia, Mom, Liberty and Belle for taking such good care of our pups!!!!

As always Steve and Tricia were great. After a Vacay with them my boys come home very relaxed. My dogs are usually quite anxious around other dogs, especially Lucky, but obviously they play well with Liberty and Bella. I like a lot the fact that Steve and Tricia do not host too many dogs at the same time. Wonderful experience as always, thank you guys !!!

I hope Happi wasnt toooooo much trouble...I met with Steve & Tricia ahead of time and felt very comfortable with them and their two bassett's ....I would not hesitate to recommend them and use them again....tciper
Tricia and Steve and THE BEST Dog-sitters ever...at least that is what Andre and Amadeus have to say. They are a couple of rather large and somewhat messy guests who demand a lot of attention. Trisha and Steve treated our dogs as if they were their own – like children. We know our dogs can be a handful, but Trisha and Steve acted like it was nothing to tend to their needs and clean up after them. In addition, Liberty and Belle, their adorable furry hosts were just as hospitable in allowing our dogs to takeover everything from the water bowl to the couch!

Thank you again to our wonderful and caring hosts! We hope you will have us back.

Steve and Tricia are awesome! They are such nice people and are true animal lovers, and took such good care of our girl. It was so nice to be able to leave her without worrying about how she was doing.

Their two basset hounds are just adorable, and are such sweet friendly girls who were happy to share their home and their mom & dad with our dog. It was quite apparent when we went to pick our girl up that she was feeling very comfortable and 'at home'. It was the first time we have ever picked her up from anywhere that she was not jumping at the door to go home.

I would highly recommend them as a pet sitter!

As always a great time with Steve and Tricia for the boys... We never worry about our furbabies when we send them on their own personal vacation at Steve and Tricia.... The boys love it there and love Liberty and Belle..... You guys are the best and we are blessed that we found you... Dan, Christiane, Capper and Wotan

Our two yellow Labs just had their second stay at Tricia and Steve's (actually I think the house belongs to their basset hounds ; ) which is a great indication of Tricia and Steve's love of all dogs.
Our Tess & Jenny stayed with them over Christmas break. We are recent transplants to Florida and were thrilled to have found them. They spoil our dogs as much as they spoil their own and send pictures to us during the dogs stay to prove it.
I contacted them on short notice for our girls last stay and their response was "great, no problem!"
Tess and Jenny feel right at home and we don't worry about the care they will receive while we're away. Tricia and Steve are careful to get all details on what your dogs needs and routines are and will carry them out.
We recommend that if you're researching people to care for your dog that you arrange a meet and greet with this dog loving couple!

Our dog's second stay with Steve and Tricia. He was happy the entire time and I think Boo Boo was a bit sad to leave. It is such a great piece of mind to know you dog will be left in such great hands.
As always...Boo Boo loves his adopted Florida family.
We couldn't be more pleased with the care our border collie received! As Abigail is almost ten years old and had been cared for by only one other couple down here, we were apprehensive on how she would be. Tricia and Steve alleviated my concerns! They treated her like their own! Even sending us a picture of them playing frisbee with her! I was more concerned she wouldn't want to come home. For those of you who are looking for a caring couple to watch your canine "family" member, stop here!

This visit was the second time my Wife and I have used them to take care of our dogs. We have been extremely happy with their care and professionalism. They have been very accommodating and we can tell they truly love animals. We will definitely be making all our dog-sitting reservations through Steve & Tricia.

All I can say was I have never left my dog with anyone.
After several meet and greet meetings I had a great a feeling about Steve and Tricia.
Boo Boo had a great time...they sent me pics to let me know everything is ok and when all was said and done I would go back without ANY hesitation.
Actually, thank goodness there are people like them to take care of our four legged friends while we are gone.
Boo Boo was in love with them when he left.
Thanks Steve and Tricia...Thanks a ton.

Words can not express how happy not only myself ,but my buddy.. Yankee was !!!! I received pics and texts a couple of times daily. My dog is like my child and I just found his aunt and uncle who he enjoys visiting and I can trust him with.
I had to leave my boys with Tricia and Steve for eight days, I was anxious because Lucky needed to take medications three times a day. Steve and Tricia were wonderful as well as their two bassets, who are very friendly. Rex and Lucky obviously had a great time. Every thing was taken care of - medications, play time, sleep ..I received frequent updates and photos.When I came back my babies were calm and happy , Steve even gave them a bath the last day, which was amazing. I would greatly recommend Tricia, Steve, Liberty and Belle, thank you very much guys!!!

The boys are back from another fantastic Doggy Vacay with Steve and Tricia, and are so tired from all the excitement. There is no one better to leave your furbabies with than Steve and Tricia. Its going to take a week for them to get back into the swing of things, because of all the excitement of hanging out with Steve, Tricia, Liberty and Belle. Thanks again guys and look forward to seeing you guys again in the future. Capper&Wotan

If you want your pet to be shown love and well taken care of.I strongly recommend Steve And Tricia.Second time we left our Sammy with them.Very EZ to relax while you are away .Knowing that he was being well taken care of.Thank you again. Maggie & Joe

Trish and Steve were Fantastic with our dog. He looked so Great when we picked him up. Trish and Steve really went the extra mile to make our 2 sons feel better about leaving Romeo with them. While we were away, Trish sent a couple of photos of Romeo playing, which was not requested, but she stated, " I know this will make your boys happy." WOW is all I can say about them taking a extra effort like that to reassure my 2 small boys that their dog is ok.
Then they were very flexible with drop off and pick up time, as we had delays in both, but they were very accomadating.
Can't wait to use Trish and Steve again.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!!

Steve and Tricia were great, again! We cannot thank them enough!
There are not enough good things that I can say about Steve & Tricia. We just got back from a short trip away, leaving our 10 month old energetic puppy for the first time. We were so nervous about leaving her until we met Steve & Tricia. All of our worries subsided when we met them, knowing she'd be in great hands. While we were away, they sent us pictures of Daisy having a great time with them and their dogs. If they can handle Daisy with all of her energy, they can handle any dog! :) Again, we are so happy with our experience and will most definitely be using Steve & Tricia again in the future. I cannot thank them enough for taking such good care of our baby!

First I must say I was a little apprehensive using DogVacay. Having said that I am so glad we did! We were visiting the area and had never left our little Cavalier overnight. Upon meeting both Steve & Tricia we were quickly put to ease. They give so much love & attention to our little girl! I have saved my review to the end of our vacation so I may share that every time we left her in their care she was taken care of so well I could not imagine leaving her with anyone else. I am sure there are very competent day cares in the area, but I still feel the best care is a home environment. We were in the area for 2 months and Steve & Tricia were always & generously available! I highly recommend them as you can trust them to take exceptional care of your furry family member. We will be visiting the area again next year and will most definitely be scheduling all of Sophie's visits with them! I know she will be so excited to see them. Thank-you so much Steve & Tricia!

THERE GREAT
My 4 and 1/2 year old Gizmo, a Chihuahua, had NEVER been away from me, in his 5 years of life, NOT even for an evening.....Gizzi gave new definition to "separation anxiety". I HAD to go to Colorado for my son's wedding, and Steve and Tricia, were BEYOND A PERFECT FIT!! From the day 'we' went to our meet and greet I knew I would be able to enjoy my son's wedding without worrying about Gizmo. I not only was able to relax and enjoy my trip, but several times a day, they sent messages and pictures, and it ALWAYS assured me, that Gizzi was really fine! I will NEVER leave him with ANYONE but this lovely, loving couple! Gizmo came home happy and healthy, and we are both DELIGHTED!

Our dogs had a wonderful time at Steve and Tricia's house. Steve and Tricia are two of the nicest people we have ever met and they truly care about our dogs. Their dogs Liberty and Bell became buddies with our puppy (12 weeks old) and our older dog Deuce found another lifetime friend to play fetch for hours at a time, until Steve's arm falls off anyway. Steve and Tricia sent us texts with cute pics of the dogs playing and updates on how they were doing several times while we were out of town. We even received a text the day after we picked them up asking how they were doing, which was really sweet. We definitely will use them again whenever the dogs need a vacay :).

Many thanks you's to Steve and Tricia for having Penny and Luna in their home. It was truly a vacation for Penny and Luna and they were so happy at their house with the their adorable Bassett Hounds, Liberty and Bell. They have a beautiful fenced yard and the dogs got more than enough exercise everyday under Steve's watchful eye. Penny could not wait for Tricia to pick her up in her arms and Luna, although too big to be a lap dog, managed to sit on Steve's lap. Steve and Tricia are wonderful pet parents and treated my dogs like their own. I no longer have to worry about Penny and Luna and what I will do with them if I have to go away, even for a day or two. Thank you so much Steve and Tricia.

Thank you so much for making Buzz feel at home
Steve & Tricia are the best and really know what it is to be doggie parents. Capper was on his own Basset vacation, not only with Steve & Tricia, but also Belle, Liberty and CB. He was so wore out from his vacation he had to take a long nap and get back to his normal life. We will be using Steve & Tricia for our future doggie baby sitters. No more kennels for Capper.
