About Missy

We loooooove dogs!
Since Mom came to live with us (you could knock her over with a feather!) we are now having to limit the size of our doggy-guests to the itty-bitties...maybe 15 lbs tops.
I wish we could care for your big pups, too. We reeeeally miss our big-dog buddies, but it just isn't possible right now. :(
Having owned, cared for, and truly loved, dogs for most of my life, I find it to be my absolute fact, I just can't imagine not having dogs in my life!
We live in the 'burbs', in a simple home with Allure Wood (vinyl) floors for easy cleaning of those 'accidents' that our furry friends may have ('cept for carpet on the steps, for the dogs!).
Our home is on a quiet cul-de-sac, and has a generous, fully fenced-in backyard and woods beyond (perfect for walks, for the 'off road' dog!).
A large, fenced 'chicken-land' at the back of our yard is a great source of fresh eggs (and entertainment) for us and our own 2 fur-babies, Sunny and Shady. All of our visiting dog-nitaries really seem to like watching the chickens too...dreaming of dinner, maybe...?
Within a 5 minute drive, there is a nice dog park, which we frequent with our dogs, and sometimes with visiting dogs, if they enjoy the parks (and if doggy-ma and doggy-pa approve)!
We look forward to meeting you and your dogs, and I promise you, we will love and care for them as if they were our own!
We now offer a multi-dog discount rate, and will send a custom quote in response to a reservation inquiry.
Note that although we have included many pics with lots of great dogs (some are our new DogVacay friends, and some are our own sweet babies who have gone to the rainbow bridge). We currently have just two of our own, Sunny and Shady. :)

What a fantastic place for our pup! I couldn't have asked for better. Since I was so nervous about boarding our dog for the first time, we went for an extended meet 'n greet, leaving our pup for a day for the daycare rate. She simply had a blast. Within a few minutes our pup was running laps around the great backyard that Missy has, and when we picked her up after a few hours, she was the most tired I have ever seen her! So thankful we found Missy!
Missy and her husband Steve are wonderful doggie hosts that I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to board their pup. I was very nervous since we had never left our dog anywhere before, and Missy was very reassuring. She was flexible with the meet and greet, and seeing how comfortable our Lucy was with Sunny and Shady put my mind at ease. While on vacation I received numerous photo and email updates, all letting me know that Lucy was having a great time on her own vacation while I was enjoying mine. Lucy came back exhausted and happy. I couldn't have asked for more, and we will definitely be using Missy's place again!
Missy was very reassuring, I was nervous about leaving our dog. Missy was very flexible with our meet n greet. She was vey patient with me and Ginger our dog. When we finally left for vacation she sent me pictures, showing how Ginger was getting along in her new environment and with her new friends. When we got back to our dog she was very well adjusted and not nervous at all. I know Ginger had a Great time on her Doggy Vacay.
Our experience with Missy was great! From the meet-and-greet, til we had to pick Bella back up, it all went well. It was our first time to have to leave Bella and I just felt so much better leaving her with someone I knew would take care of her. We had picture updates while we were away and that was helpful also. We will definitely use Missy again when needed.
Our experience with Missy was wonderful! Our sweet Audrey had a blast with them playing and exploring. Missy and her husband Steve truly have a gift with dogs. We would recommend her to anyone and will be using them again!
Missy did it again! My dogs had another great time with our favorite host! As per usual, Missy, her husband, and their four legged kids not only provided a warm and inviting environment, but they quickly put both of our pups at ease. We never worry when the dogs are with Missy, and will continue to use her every time we go on our on vacations. I would highly recommend her services to anyone in the Cincinnati area.
Thanks Missy, I'm sure Beemer enjoyed his week at your place. I'm so glad he gets along with your pups, I'm sure has a blast!
I thought Missy and Steve took great care of Molly while we took a 3 night trip. It was our first time to have Molly do a dog "vacay" and she was fine and in good hands. I am sure we will use their services again. Mike W.
You can tell Missy is a dog lover. My pup enjoyed his time over there, and had plenty of opportunities to play and release his energy, unlike if I have to kennel him. Thanks Missy, you'll be hearing from us again soon.
Missy, Steve and their furry crew were wonderful hosts for our two pups. Great people, who truly care for dogs like they are their own. I was able to e-mail back and forth with Missy while on vacation including picture updates. Not only were they great about hosting and making sure the dogs were relaxed and comfortable in their home, but they also made sure our house rules were still enforced. Both of our dogs came back tired, well-mannered, and best of all even more socialized then before. Misty went one step further after our stay and provided information to help with one of our dogs tummy ache from his current food. It was comforting to know that someone was caring for my dog just like I would have. Definitely would recommend and you will not find a price close for the valuable services given.
Our dog had a wonderful stay with Missy and her family! Missy is a super-sweet person and I could tell as soon as I met her that she is also a dog-lover! Was so nice to go on a worry-free vacation knowing that our pup was being well taken care of.
