About Sarah And Max

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Sarah and Max offer a highly supervised environment, loving care, sensitivity to particular needs, knowledgable experience, and many walks tailored to your dog's needs (long/short/vigorous/leisurely as needed). Our normal walks include a one-mile morning walk, short mid-day walks, and one-mile evening walk. This is variable based on dog needs. We are highly attentive to creating an individualized experience for each pup, and we also LOVE sending photo updates (we know you miss your pup's sweet face and we completely understand)! Between our two schedules someone is usually always home!

About Us (by Sarah):
I absolutely love animals and have been caring for dogs my entire life.
Growing up with a veterinarian father, I have cared for many family dogs, foster dogs, and other pets (cats, pigs, ducks, goats, iguanas, sugar gliders, chameleons, geckos, exotic fish, etc.) throughout the years. Growing up I spent many summers walking, feeding, and caring for dogs, cats, and exotic animals in the kennels of my father's animal hospital. My experience with dogs is expansive including a wide-range of breeds (beagles, rottweillers, labs, bull dogs, pugs, irish wolfhounds, shelties, jack russel terriers, lhasa apso, dalmations, lovely mutts, and many more!), ages, behavior tendencies, and medical needs.
My husband, Max, is a 5-star dog-lover, who works at a 5-star hotel in Center City in the evenings. Growing up in South Carolina he was a primary care giver for his family's beagles and labradors. He has high energy, a natural canine intuition, and is great at ensuring that our guests get all of the attention and exercise they need! We ventured into this business to satiate my urge to get a second dog, until I graduate, to keep Attie company, and it is going so great so far!

Sarah is currently a graduate student. For the most part she works from home for a nonprofit organization, but does work a few morning shifts/week at a restaurant around the corner. Max mostly works week-day evenings and Sunday morning.

**Between September and May, we will have additional increased availability, as Sarah's time spent at home studying/researching will increase during school.

About our dog:
Our golden retriever mix, Attie, is very friendly and loves the opportunity to make more doggie friends. She is a very laid-back, almost 6 year old, spayed golden retriever mix with up to date vaccinations. She has a very gentle/neutral demeanor and gets along with pretty much every dog we have encountered. She is great at reading other dog's cues and is great with dogs who are playful, or dogs who are not interested in playing but want to peacefully coexist.

About our care and apartment:
We make certain to specifically follow each owner's care and training procedures. We always feed in separate rooms to absolutely eliminate any possibility of food-agression or stress. We do not feed guest dogs unapproved food/treats. We absolutely never let guest dogs off-leash.

Our apartment has two bedrooms, wood and tile floors, and a fenced-in-roof-deck. We live near the Philadelphia Art Museum and Fairmount park and love taking long strolls around these nice areas. There is also an empty field across the street from our house which is like an unofficial neighborhood dog park which is great for quick walks in extreme weather, or for quick night-time walks. We have a car and can provide transportation in if pickup/drop-off is needed or in case of medical emergency.

For the sake of our dog, guest dogs, and our home environment, all guests must be non-aggressive and friendly with other dogs, house-trained, and have up to date vaccinations, heart worm, and flea medication.

Hudson had a great time with Sarah! He was very comfortable with her right from the start and got a long great with Attie, Sarah's dog. Sarah accepted Hudson into her home last minute which really saved me. She was responsive and available, sending pictures and letting me know how Hudson was doing. I would definitely choose to have Sarah baby sit again in the future:) Thank you so much!
Sarah and Max took great care of Pepe and were flexible with pick up/drop off times. Thanks guys! :)
Sarah and Max were great! They sent us a few photos each day and were flexible with our pick up/drop off times. We'd definitely go to them for our next trip.
We were in town for sightseeing and had two previous DogVacay sitters lined up which ended up not working out. Sarah and Max were wonderful to work with and took our two dogs practically at the last minute. They were very accommodating with pickup and drop off times. We met them first in their place so we could see where they lived and slowly introduced their dog and another dog they were boarding to our two dogs. It went well. They took our dogs to the park for walks and sent pictures and texts to let us know everything was going well. This allowed us to experience Philadelphia without worrying about our dogs being alone. We would recommend Sarah and Max and if we were to find ourselves in the area again we would be happy to use them for our dogs.
Sarah, Max and their sweet dog Attie took great care of our chocolate lab, Nigel. We got great photo and video updates during our trip and Nigel came home tired and happy. We strongly recommend Sarah and Max!
Sarah and Max and Attie were great. While this was our first stay through DogVacay, they made us really comfortable with the process and assured of their ability to keep Roger happy and safe. Their home seemed like a great dog-friendly place, and my dog was excited that there was a host dog there to keep him company. Sarah also sent us pictures of Roger and their dog Attie to keep us updated on how everyone was doing. They went on several walks I could tell Roger had a great time. I would love to send him back to Sarah and Max next time we are out of town!
Sarah and Max were great! They handled our hyper pup Rita so well that after a weekend of playing at their house she had to come home and sleep it off for an entire day. We will definitely we using them again!
Amazing sitter ! Dewy came home very happy.
Sarah and Max babysat our 1 yr old pug, Yoshi, for 4 nights while we were on vacation. They were awesome! Originally, we asked them to watch him for 3 nights, but decided to drop him off the night before our flight so we did not have to rush in the morning. They were very accommodating. I loved getting the daily updates with pictures. They have a dog, Attie, which was great because Yoshi loves playing with other dogs. I will definitely call them again if needed and highly recommend!
Sarah and Max were the perfect sitters for our beagle/bulldog mix! Communication was always prompt and friendly, and Jasper came home happy and exhausted from a busy few days. Thanks SO much again and we'll definitely reach out for future trips :)
Sarah and Max (and Attie) did a great job with my dog Benya. They were flexible, attentive and gave Benya great care for a week. Especially appreciate the good (long) walks and various outings. They were responsive - providing updates and pictures to let me know she was doing well. Thank you.
Great hosts! Thanks for everything.
Very responsive and interactive. They sent photos every day and seem to really enjoy having Quincy at their home. I will definitely use them again??
Very prompt and responsive to any communication, before and during the day care; shared pictures and updates throughout. Our dog was very happy (and knocked out) after the day there!
Sarah and Max were perfect hosts! I dropped my pug off for the first time for a 4 night stay and I got pictures everyday and could tell my dog was loving it there! They were incredibly nice, replied to our reservation request immediately and we're excited to use them again in the future!
Five stars!. Ruby has stayed with Sarah and Max on two occasions thus far. Both experiences have been fantastic. Sarah and Max were flexible with drop of/pick up times and sent multiple updates with photos throughout the week! Ruby came home happy and well rested! I recommend Sarah and Max as hosts for any dog!
Sarah and Max were amazing hosts yet again for our beagles! They are so accommodating and the pups keep coming home tired out and super happy. Looking forward to their next visit!
Sarah and Max are amazing! They were able to accommodate us with very short notice and were super flexible and gracious with our scheduling constraints. Our pups had an awesome time with them and we got tons of photo updates throughout the day! We felt totally comfortable with them and their sweet dog, Attie, and are looking forward to booking again soon. Can't recommend these two enough!
