About Bruce

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi I'm Bruce and I, like you, treat my dogs like family.
When you board your dogs with us, that's exactly how they will be treated. Plenty of exercise and playing are a daily standard here, no cages or kennels.
Special needs are welcome.
We love dogs!

On short notice, this was out first experience with DogVacay. The reservation process was smooth and easy. Bruce M. was a pleasure to work with and paid special attention to our 17 year old terrier. He kept in touch while we were out of town. His paid special attention to our 17 year old terrier. He kept in touch while we were out of town. His home is set up to accommodate dogs and was close to our home. We will certainly use Bruce again. Thanks Bruce!

Bruce is, in a word, Miraculous. Our dogs are odd, and truly, that's being overly kind. Our 11-year-old Angus is so eccentric, he makes the late Howard Hughes seem completely average. Despite their weirdness, Bruce took in our fur babies, and they Howard Hughes seem completely average. Despite their weirdness, Bruce took in our fur babies, and they assimilated quickly into his own little pack. Bruce sent pictures and videos every day, and quickly answered all our (unnecessary) texts to check on the pups.

This is only the second time we've been away from Angus and Cara in 11 and 9 years, respectively; the first time we boarded them at the vet and it was a disaster. This time, they were in an amazing, dog-friendly, beautiful home, with loving people and dogs, and we could not dream up a more perfect experience.

Were it possible, we'd give Bruce 10 stars, he's very calm, soft-spoken, easy-going, and it's obvious that every dog who meets him adores him. The same is true for people; Bruce will instantly put you at ease, and you can tell that he is going to love your babies like his own while they're with him. His wife is also a dog person, and our little Angus took to her quickly, because he's a Mama's Boy.

We will definitely be asking Bruce to care for our babies again, now that we know it's possible to go on vacation and have a surrogate Dad and Mom to care for them in a real nice home setting. Thanks Bruce and Melanie!
