Judy and her family have watched our pup a few times now. Our pup is always excited to go to Judy's and is well taken care of during his stay. Judy is easy to get a hold of and responds quickly to inquiries (before/during/after our pups stay).
Judy and her family were very accommodating and our pup, Koda, seemed to really enjoy his stay. We received photos of Koda during his vacay and I am sure he really enjoyed the large backyard he was able to run around in.
Judy and family were great, as always.
Working with her to arrange drop off and pick up was easy and my little one's stay with her went well. I assume she had fun and got lots of exercise because she went directly to bed when we got home.
Judy not only took excellent care of my pups, she pointed us to the best and most convenient place to stay...only a few minutes from her and the wedding reception venue. She was absolutely wonderful and calmed my concerns about the whole weekend.
Soooo happy to have found Judy and her family! They were loving and attentive to my dog Buddy and never neglected to keep us in the loop. Buddy came home after 2 weeks! happy and healthy!
Fern had a wonderful time with Judy and her family. She got lots of play time with other pups which has really improved her social skills with other dogs.
What impressed me the most about having Fern stay with Judy is that it is not just Judy. Her entire wonderful family participated in the care of our Fern.
It was very evident by Fern's behavior around them, that she sees them as part of her pack/family.
Thank you, Judy.
This was our dog Jeepers's second extended dog vacation with Judy and her family. This time Jeepers stay was for 2 weeks. Even though that is a long time to be away from our little guy I felt so at ease and had no qualms leaving him in Judy's care. I am so thrilled to have found someone who I feels cares for the dogs like they are their own. felt so spoiled but thrilled getting the daily photo updates of what Jeepers was up to every day. 100% would use Judy again and I'm sure Jeepers would be happy to go back! Thanks Judy!!
Judy and her family are FANTASTIC.
I am very cautious and a bit nervous about leaving Lycisca with other people, but she was very happy and I felt that she was kept very safe and taken care of by the Byer's.

She found a new friend with Judy's husband who she could curl up on the sofa with and get plenty of belly rubs. They treated her like a valued guest, which is what you want when you leave someone as precious as your dog with others.

I have always avoided travel by air since I will not subject Lycisca to flying, but now I know that I can go on vacations via air and that she will be taken care of and that I will receive daily updates and pictures of my girl.
Judy is wonderful. My dog always has a wonderful time when she stays there. So much so that she doesn't even get too excited when I come to pick her up. It's always nice to know she's well taken care of and Judy also sends me pictures and updates while I'm away.
My husband and I were searching for a house and needed a place for our dog to stay while we were out and about all day. It is always hard to leave her but we all felt welcomed and at ease as soon as we walked in the door. She immediately started playing with the other dogs. We knew she would have a blast. It helped to get pictures every day and see how happy she was. She slept for two days after we picked her up! We will definitely use Judy again.
What a positive experience! Judy and her family are so warm and easy going. This was our first foray into the world of DogVacay. Judy quickly accepted a "Meet and Greet," and upon meeting her and her son, we instantly felt a sense of ease with the idea of our dog Cheyenne staying with them. Cheyenne is timid and although not aggressive, can feel like a handful. We liked that there were other dogs there and that someone was around much of the time. Cheyenne has come home more relaxed than before we took her. It was obviously a great experience for her. We're all happy :).
Judy kept me well informed with texts and pictures of my dog Max during his stay at her house. I was able to enjoy my trip knowing Max was in good hands.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay. Judy did everything she said she would. The pictures and texts we received were reassuring. We would be happy to use Judy again.
Judy was quick to respond when I contacted her to set up my initial meet and greet. I knew she was the perfect place for my fur babies. She has a big fenced in back yard and a nice large house for them to roam. She took great care of my two small poodles. I received updated pictures every day and knew they were getting great care. I would highly recommend Judy and definitely plan to use her again!
Judy was fabulous! Emily was stressed out when we boarded her at a kennel last month. We were lucky to find Judy. She sent us pictures of Emily throughout her stay. Emily had a great time. Will definitely reserve a spot again!
I think my 2 dogs had a wonderful time. They were tired when they got home - tired pups are happy pups!
I recently boarded two dogs with Judy Byer. She sent great photos and short messages each day. When I picked up the dogs they were not particularly anxious to leave her house. I take that to mean they were well-cared for and content with her and in no hurry to go home.

If I need to board them again I would definitely choose Judy Byer as my sitter.
Judy was great!
Judy, her husband and kids made my dog feel right at home on very short notice. I would definitely use her again.
Judy and Ari took great care of Teddy while we were out of town. I was nervous and they texted me every day to tell me how he was doing. I felt that she took care of him as if he were her own dog. Teddy had lots of fun with the other dogs and came home pooped. Will definitely use Judy again!
Sia had a wonderful time with Judy and her family.
Judy took fantastic care of Duke while I was in the process of moving to a new place and made sure he had attention the whole time. Can definitely say I would recommend her to anyone and will use her again in the future!
Bella had a great time
This was the second "doggie vacation" that my 2 Golden Retrievers spent with Judy B and her family. My pups love it there-they make themselves at home, Judy and her family really treat Bella and Jagger as if they are members of their family. As a bonus, my 2 made a new BFF w/another Bella boarding with them. Judy sent daily pics of the dogs playing, eating and relaxing. No worries at all. Perfect "vacation" for my pups and for me!
It was a great stay for Red. We would use Judy again in a heartbeat.
My 2 kids (Golden Retrievers Bella and Jagger) had their first vacation with Judy and her family last week. I knew from my prior meet and greet that I was totally comfortable leaving them in her care and when drop off time arrived both Bella and Jagger ran right into her home and didn't look back, which made me feel wonderful about going on my trip. The dogs enjoyed Judy's other family members (human) as well as the other dogs who were boarding with her as well. Her yard is huge and safely fenced in. I love that the "guests" enjoy the run of their huge house but are kept extra safe and watched. They were treated like family members (AKA:spoiled like in my home)and Judy took the time to send adorable photos daily of them.
I've already booked them for 3 more stays and am so thrilled that I can now schedule short and long trips to visit family out of town without worrying about Bella and Jagger being stressed or missing me.
A DogVacay at Judy house is like taking your kids to stay with family. Thank you Judy (and family) for taking as good care of my canine kids as I do.
Judy and her family were great hosts for Pippa. They have a big backyard perfect for chasing tennis balls and squirrels. I felt very confident that we were leaving our very active dog in good hands.
Sent us plenty of pictures and Red seemed happy!
Judy and her family take excellent care of my dog Sammy while I'm out of town. She's flexible with drop-off and arrival times. She is also very responsive in her communication. I highly recommend!
Judy was excellent. She sent me photos and videos of Heisenberg everyday. Heisenberg loved it there - chasing other dogs and playing with them in the backyard. I would definitely use Judy's services again in the future.
Great stay! Finn loves to stay with Judy!
The girls had a great time at Judy's and are going back next week!
Judy always takes great care of Monty! Monty has stayed with Judy a number of times over the last year and we have been very happy with the care he receives.
Once again, Yoda had a great time with Judy B and her family. He gets excited when we pull up to her house and it looks like he plays well with the other dogs. I appreciate the daily photos and messages and the quick response when setting up pick-up and drop-off times. They have hosted Yoda many times and hopefully will be able to do so again.
Judy and her entire family were great. They kept our dog Chloe during a very long vacation that we took and Chloe came back to us very healthy and happy. Judy is very good about sending regular updates on how our dog was doing, and she is very accommodating on drop off and pick up times. I strongly recommend her.
Judy was very accommodating, and my dog Buster seemed to happy when I picked him up. I will definitely use her in the future.
My dog butterball had a great time under Judy and her family care when we had a vacation. Especially we felt happier when receiving daily photo of butterball from her son Ari because we missed our dog very much. We will ask them to take care of butterball again for next time.
I believe they did a good job though they forgot to give Red his pill for his hips. It is not a crucial pill for him to take. Judy's son was watching 7 dogs with a friend and I think that is too many. Red came back fine though and I think enjoyed himself.
My dog seemed very happy and well taken care of. Will use Judy and Ari's services again!
Judy was great! Our two dogs were well-cared for, happy, and pooped when we picked them up. I would definitely recommend her.
We are so happy we discovered the Byers Dog Hostel on our very first try with DogVacay. Our golden immediately nuzzled up to Judy, sensing a warm, nurturing fellow dog mom. The entire family was very sensitive to Bella's needs, particularly because she tends to have some anxiety issues. The best testimonial to how happily she adapted to the Byers is that when arriving for our second Vacay, Bella CHARGED up to their front door, anxious to start her vacation and enjoy their large backyard and other charming doggie guests. Judy has been very flexible regarding drop off and pick up times, even accommodating a last minute Vacay extension. The daily videos/photos went a long way toward putting our minds at ease and trusting that Bella was in good hands. We will DEFINITELY be visiting the Byers again!

Our family has felt extremely lucky to have discovered the Byer family on our first shot with DogVacay. Our Bella immefiately nuzzled up to Judy, clearly sensing that she is a warm, nurturing fellow dog mom. The Byers are all very attentive and sensitive to our dog's needs, physical and emotional, as our Golden has some issues with anxiety and change. She clearly adapted very nicely because on our last (and second) visit, Bella charged up to the front door, anxious to begin her vacation! Both times she enjoyed the Byers' large backyard and several other, charming doggie boarders. We received daily videos and/or photos and text updates that went a long way to putting our minds at ease and trusting that Bella was in good hands. Additionally, Judy was very flexible regarding drop off and pick up times, even accommodating a last minute Vacay extension. We will DEFINITELY be visiting the Byers Dog Hostel again!
Another great visit at Camp Judy! Since Bella has been sleeping since she got home I am assuming she had a fabulous time. So lucky to have Judy and her family around to look after her.
Judy and her family took great care of my English bulldog, Rocco. He seemed quite happy there and I got a picture of him every day, including shots of him exploring their backyard and napping on his bed. I'm delighted to have a great sitter so close to home and I think Rocco will be spending more quality time there since I often travel for two weeks at a time for work.
Fantastic experience - Jusy and her family are terrific!!!
We are always comfortable leaving our Remy with Judy and her family. They are clearly concerned with his health and happiness and do a wonderful job. He is always excited to arrive at their house! For us, communication is very important. Judy never fails to send us picture updates and we know that she would always communicate with us effectively in an emergency situation. Thank you for taking care of our boy!
I don't think I will be using this host again. My dog seemed fine when I picked him up, but this host was not completely honest with me. I was suppose to receive text messages with pictures of my dog for each day that he stayed with the family (minus the Sabbath). I did get the messages as promised, but two of them were identical pictures used separately for a Monday and a Wednesday. Another picture and message indicated that my dog was going to go outside in the afternoon, but the door in background indicated that it was in the evening. I don't really care about receiving these updates each day. I don't need to know every move my dog takes, but I resent being sent text messages that aren't true. When I came to the house the dog was outside alone, something the host indicated would not happen. His nose was scratched up and he had been separated from another dog that was staying there. It left a bad feeling with me.
Another happy stay with Judy's family! Liam's tail was wagging as soon as we stepped out of the car at Judy's house. Always a good sign when your pooch is excited about his "vacay"!
Judy was great! I felt very comfortable leaving Lucy there and she was obviously happy and well-cared for when I picked her up. Many thanks!
Judy and her family were a great match for our pooch. He was comfortable and well-cared-for, and Judy communicated with us daily. We were 100% satisfied with the care Liam received during our vacation and will definitely book future stays with this great DogVacay family!
Just got Finn home from a wonderful weekend with Judy. He had a great time and is sleeping it off as I write this. I just love getting the pictures every day to see what he is doing.
After our normal dog sitter was booked up for the weekend we found Judy B on DogVacay. My dog and I went to meet her on a Wednesday and found her to be very friendly, professional and a great fit for us. She and her whole family are there to help and take care of the dogs. My dog came back happy and tired (which is good!).

Now I have two normal dog sitters to choose from and am very happy!
Another great time for Bella at Judy's. This time her son Max was on duty while Judy was away and he did great. Happy to know another Byer provides a great time and service. Will be back again as usual.
Shelby came back so happy and well exercised, Judy and family are just phenomenal! Thank you!
As always, George had a blast at Judy's!
Judy and her family were phenomenal in taking care of our sweet wheatens. I was very nervous having never left them with anyone other than family, and Judy was so wonderful that I felt completely confident that Winnie and Winston were in fantastic hands. They updated us daily with pictures of our pups, and the dogs were so happy to run and play all day in their big backyard. They were also so accommodating in when we dropped off and pick up the pups.

We will certainly have Judy and her family host our fur babies again! We highly recommend them to anyone!
We've used Judy and her family on more than one occasion because my dog loves it there. She's a quirky Chocolate lab mix, and Judy's family always makes us feel confident that Phoenix will be fine, and she always is! We know she gets plenty of walks and attention. They are also very communicative with anything that is going on. Highly recommended!
Judy and her family were wonderful. This was our first time away from our rescued lab mix, Daisy. We only have had her for 8 months so we wanted someone who would make Daisy feel comfortable while we were gone for a week. Judy went out of her way to make sure Daisy was well cared for! They sent photos every day and provided updates on how she did on her walks when she met other dogs. Judy's whole family was lovely and they clearly enjoyed being with Daisy and know a lot about dog behavior! I would not hesitate to bring Daisy here and would highly recommend them!
Mila had a wonderful time staying with the Byer family! They were so accommodating and Mila loved them. They have a wonderful backyard for playtime and Mila slept on the big chair with all of her doggie friends. I will definitely bring Mila back to stay with you all again whenever I go out of town and need a place for her to go. Thanks a ton!! She is one happy dog :)
Bella spent another wonderful Passover with Judy and her family. Everything was great as usual. Love having Judy around the corner to take such good care of our Bella.
Judy and her whole family were wonderfully attentive to my pup. I love that her kids would let Suzi sleep with them and shower her with love. I would definitely recommend Judy to other families.
Booker came home happy and tired. I know he loves having a yard to enjoy. And I'm never concerned that he's not getting attention - it seems that Judy and her family really enjoy Booker! Just two days back and I'm already scheduling his next visit!
What a wonderful family! Maggie thoroughly enjoyed her stay at theByers, and we will use them in the future. This is been an excellent introduction to dogVacay for us, we are very satisfied.
Over a snowy long weekend, our Sunny was kept warm and cozy. She was close to Judy mostly hanging out under the table while Judy worked. The family took good care to provide walks and some play time with the other visiting dogs. Since Sunny is a big sweetheart, she even got to snuggle on the bed at night. We enjoyed the pictures sent as well.
Trey had a great time, he got to play with other doggies and we got daily updates on how he was doing. He was a little nervous at first but it seems he got into his routine playing with other dogs and sleeping with the family. He was happy to see us when he got home but not overly excited which means he had a good time. We'll definitely be using Judy and family again for Trey's doggie vacation.
We have used Judy and her family several times and they are always wonderful to deal with. Judy is very accommodating and responsive and my dog, Minnie, returns happy and healthy. Do not hesitate to trust them with your pet. Jamie W.
Judy and her family are wonderful pet sitters. We get pictures every day and our dog is always so happy. This is a great vacay for your dog.
Finn had a great time at Judy's! The daily pictures were a great way to check on him and the notes let us know how things were going. They were super flexible about changes in pick-up due to weather. Will be sure to book here again.
Very helpful and accommodating. Pete seemed to have had a great time. Thanks!
Judy is great, as always!
As always, these folks were amazing hosts. Louis had developed an issue with his paw that required antibiotics, which we only got from the vet the day before we left town. They managed everything perfectly and didn't complain about the extra work. We paid them extra anyway, as it was the right thing to do, but they were great. My only complaint is that I worry that Louis may like them better than us!!
Yoda always has such a good time with Judy, her family, and the other dog guests. He's stayed there several times. He gets very excited when we pull up to her driveway and runs straight to her door. I love the daily pictures and communication while we're gone. What a great host!!!
Judy was great. She sent daily pics of our dog and he seemed happy to be there. We appreciated that she was flexible with pickup/drop off times. We would definitely let him stay again.
Booker came home happy and tired - to us a successful stay! We enjoyed getting photos of him throughout the week and were especially pleased when Judy let us know they were enjoying having him there. I'm looking forward to the next time he will be able to stay with them.
Another successful visit with Judy. Love that she is around the corner from us and really seems to care about Bella. Bella was spoiled this go around with no other canine friends and all of Judy's loving. We're thankful to have Judy and her family look after Bella while we're gone and no worries on our end.
Another wonderful stay with Judy and her family! :)
We loved the daily updates and the photos we received about Toki's stay. Toki had a great time and the photos showed that she had a pleasant stay.
Judy and her family took such good care of my hyper big boy, Jake! This was my first time away from Jake for a long period of time and thanks to her communication, it helped me feel at ease knowing that he was in her care.
Judy and her family are great. Louis loves going there. It's the only time we question whether he loves us, cause I think he loves Judy's family more.
This was Minnie's 3rd stay with Judy and her family. It is so nice to be able to get away and enjoy ourselves, knowing that Minnie is happy and well cared for. Judy is very communicative and accommodating. We highly recommend her.
This was our first time using the Byer Family for our dog Jeepers. We were nervous about leaving him but upon meeting Judy and her sons at the meet/greet I felt very at ease with the prospect of their sitting him. I had the immediate impression that they really wanted to do a good job and they cared about the dogs. Jeepers at pick up seemed happy and was having a great time with the other dog they were sitting, He clearly loved being able to frolic in their large fenced backyard. During this particular week her sons provided most of his care and they were great. We loved that they sent a captioned picture everyday of Jeepers doing different things. I would not hesitate to have them watch Jeepers again.
My dog Boo had a great vacation at Judy's house. After I met Judy and her two sons (who are also taking care of dogs), I was confident leaving Boo with them. Very nice family. Large backyard with trees and grass to run and play. I am sure Boo had a two-weeks blast playing with his dog-friends.
One especially nice detail - Boo has food allergies and can eat only certain brand of dog-food. By mistake, I brought a few cans less than he needed for two weeks, so Ari went to the store and found that same brand that Boo can eat. That is what called caring!
My very energetic dog came home and slept like a log for the whole day. I hope he didn't exhaust his hosts as well, and they will accept him again next time :).
Judy and her family were wonderful! They treated our very energetic pup Ranger as if he were their own, and sent us text updates (and photos!). Ranger immediately felt comfortable in the house and with the other dogs that were staying. Overall, a great experience for us and for Ranger!
Judy and her sons were all wonderful, and my dog came back very tired out and happy. I know he had a great time getting to play with other dogs all weekend. Would definitely leave him with Judy again!
Judy is great.
Once again Judy and her family provided a warm and friendly place for our Skiddles. She sent us pictures and was so easy to work with that we were again grateful to have found her!
Judy and her family were wonderful with George. They sent pictures often and were welcoming and warm with him from the first moment. Thank you!
Overall a wonderful experience with Judy B & her family! the Byer's took our dog into their home for the first time on short notice, which was very helpful b/c we had an unexpected trip arise.

Our dog was well cared for and Judy sent photos each day.

Our dog returned home happy, healthy, & tired!
Our dog stayed with Judy and her family and her other dog guests for over a week. He had a great time. This is the third time we've left our dear doggy with her, and every time has been great, especially the daily pictures and little notes that she sent.
We were so lucky to find Judy to watch our dog Minnie at the last minute. I contacted Judy the day before we needed to leave town, met her that evening for a "meet and greet," and dropped Minnie off the next morning. She was kind, flexible and responsive and as the other reviewers mentioned, she provided a picture and great communication about how Minnie was doing while we were gone. Minnie came back happy and healthy and we would not hesitate to use her again. Thanks Judy!
Judy and her family took care of my black lab, Max this weekend and she is amazing!! She is so great in scheduling and working with my flight schedule for this trip. She sent me photos and updates and made sure Max had been walked before I picked him up. Judy is super awesome and judging by Max already snoozing, he had a real dog vacation, too. T
another great stay for max at Judy's
Judy is the best! When we pull up to drop off our black lab Norie, she paws at the door - she can't wait to spend another vacation at the Byer home with Judy and other dog vacationers
Great, loving experience for our dog, with other friendly canine friends and a wonderful host family. Repeat customer who keeps coming back!
My dog had another great stay with Judy and her family. She is very accommodating and flexible with drop off and pick up time. My dog loves to go there. Whenever I put a leash on her, she thinks that’s where she is going. She’s always happy staying there. Judy sends me text message with her picture everyday with an update on how she’s doing. Great communication! We’ll be back soon!
Pepper had another great visit at Camp Byer! Judy was great about sending pictures and texts to keep my husband and I informed. Pepper came home happy and exhausted from playing with her friends. Thanks again!
Judy and her family were incredibly accommodating and were great about making arrangements when two other hosts fell through.
She sent pictures and notes everyday letting us know how our boys were doing. We were happy to see they were adjusting well! She did a great job making them feel at home.
Our beagle is very timid and had made a lot of progress before we left so I was worried that we might lose some of the progress by leaving him with people he did not know but it ended up being the opposite. He came back and was a little more assertive and social than when we left him! I think he really benefited from the attention Judy and her family were able to provide.
Max has stayed with Judy quite a few times. Her care is impeccable, we received daily pictures and updates about him, and both Max and I were very happy with the experiences. Thank you.
Judy is great. She took lots of pictures of Gadget and sent me a nice stream of updates.
Bella had a great stay with Judy. We were so thrilled to find another dogvacay sitter right near our house. Judy was great about texts, pictures and flexibility which was much appreciated. Bella had a great time and is quite pooped. Highly recommend.
Our dog went to "Camp Judy" for the weekend and will definitely be returning. A caring family that provides a home away from home.
We left our dog for a week at the Byer Family Dog Hostel and it worked out great ! Judy sent us a text message and picture each day to keep us updated. Our dog, Mike, needs a lot of attention and her family did a wonderful job !
Yoda has stayed with Judy and her family before. He again had a wonderful two-night sleepover. Judy and her family are great with dogs and sensitive to their individual differences. Yoda is an "only dog," and seemed to enjoy spending time with two very friendly dog pals. Finally, the daily pictures and texts were great.
As always, Louis LOVED his time with Judy and her family. When we dropped him off he started whining in the car, and we were worried that he might be unhappy about being left, but when he got out of the car he pulled hard on his leash to get to the front door. He couldn't wait to get inside. They treat Louis like one of their own, and he can sense it. Our only concern is that Louis may like them better than us, but we are OK playing second fiddle to this very nice family.
Judy and her family was great with my dog. They have a fenced in yard but still walked him each day which was really nice. I also loved getting the emails and pictures of him each day. He came home in good spirits and I will definitely use their family again.
Judy and her family (once again) showered Suzi with love and attention. It really enables us to enjoy our vacation when we know that Suzi is in such good hands. Their big fenced-in back yard is also a plus as she has a great place to run and exercise when she's not out for a walk. All in all, the Buyer family is very attentive and takes great care of our dog. I would highly recommend them for any dog-sitting needs.
Judy is a wonderful host. She was the only one willing to host a Saint Bernard while others turned down my request due to her size. Judy and her family took really good care of Cloey. She communicates with me everyday by sending me a text with picture letting me know how Cloey was doing. I'm very impressed and will definitely use her again in the near future.
Brady had a wonderful stay again! Judy and her family really love dogs and know them well. Brady did not even look at us when we left, he was having so much fun running around in the backyard with his new friends!
Our dog seemed to right at home at Judy's, from the minute we first walked in the door. Judy was great and helped us out at the last minute and sent us updates and photos every day of Rahma, a nice touch that we appreciated greatly. Thank you to your whole family.
Judy and her family are an excellent option for leaving your dog for an overnight stay or an extended vacation. They are terrific communicators and really make us feel comfortable when we leave Buster with them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Yoda had a great time with Judy and her family. He got to spend time with other dogs and it looks like he made some new friends. Judy was terrific regarding communication and I love her photos and emails sent daily.
Judy was wonderful. She really wants to help out pet owners and their dogs. She is a lovely person to work with. I felt very comfortable leaving my baby with her because it's a family atmosphere, dogs can play in the house and yard, and she even lets the dogs sleep on the bed :) She sent photo updates and was really so accommodating throughout the process. Thanks, Judy!
Judy was amazing. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable with leaving our 6 month old pup Orion. It was our first time leaving him and we were so nervous. Her daily emails and photo updates helped immensely and we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing Orion was in good hands. He was on medication at the time as well and she was wonderful with giving him his meds and monitoring him (again keeping us informed)! Her children are all wonderful and helpful. I would definitely trust Judy and her family with my dog again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home away from home for their dogs!
Judy took great care of our dogs who returned happy and healthy. Thanks Judy!
Judy and her family took great care of my dog. They seemed to be able to handle my dogs excessive energy. I liked that Judy would keep me updated and send me pictures and it seemed like they had a great time. It was nice to board my dog with some one who seemed genuinely enthusiastic about him and I will definitely be using them again.
Judy and her family were so welcoming and warm when we dropped Pepper off Friday night. They were watching two other dogs during Pepper's stay, which was perfect as she loves to play with other pups! We could tell when we picked her up the next day that she had a great time - she was exhausted! Thank you Judy!
EXCELLENT in all respects!
Issy couldn't have been happier. Neither could I.
Another great stay with this family! Judy was flexible and worked with me on drop off and pick up times and HollyDog was so happy and relaxed. Thank you to this wonderful family for making my dog feel like she was at home.
Judy was great! I received a picture every night (minus holidays) to ensure that Goldie was having a great time!
Wonderful family home! Responsive, accommodating, and friendly hosts. Loving and caring -- thank you!
Judy was great with our dog, she sent pictures and treated her like she was family. Very happy and plan to have her watch our dog again.
Judy and her family took wonderful care of Barley - she came home happy and exhausted after a week in their home. Judy was also very flexible with pick-up/drop-off times, which I really appreciated.
Judy and her big, happy family were very hospitable to Suzi. She provided lots of exercise and TLC for her and we were thrilled to hear how well she was doing each day. Judy was fantastic.
We had such an amazing experience with Judy and her family! Our first interaction was a meet-and-greet and we could tell that our dog Mango was immediately comfortable with the home and family and that they were all dog lovers. Our planned trip then got cancelled and Judy didn't give us any problems with canceling our reservation with her. Fast forward a couple of months and unexpectedly I go into labor early and it was a holiday weekend with all our friends out of town and we were at a lost with what to do with Mango. Within a couple of hours we were able to reach Judy and she was able to accept Mango that night and we were off to the hospital! She was very flexible and was able to even keep our dog an extra day while we were in the hospital. Mango had a great time there and we will be recommending Judy to all our friends and hope that Mango can stay with them again soon.
Judy and her family are great!! The second time we left Iris, she jumped out of the car and ran right into Judy's house, nothing could have made us feel more comfortable. The backyard is fenced in and Iris always comes back to us happy and tired. Both times we have been late to pick Iris up and Judy was so nice about it. We can not be thanful enough for the care they provide. We highly recomend Judy to anyone looking for a dog sitter!
Judy and her family took really good care of Brady. Judy sent photos and an update every day, which helped us feel more comfortable about being out of the country without him! I would certainly send Brady there again!
Judy is Wonderful!
Judy and her family were wonderful hosts for our dog. When I picked up our cocker spaniel Arthur after two weeks, I could tell by the way he played with Judy and ran around her house that he had felt truly at home. Judy and her family were very responsive and sent daily pictures of/updates on our pet. I feel confident Arthur was in good hands, and look forward to his next doggie vacation with Judy. Thank you!
Judy is awesome! Alex can be a ball of energy, Judy was very patient and kind. She treated Alex like he was her own. THANK YOU JUDY!!
Judy and family were great. They took care of my babies. Thank you....
Judy and family was great. Arlo couldn't stop talking about them when he got home.
Judy took wonderful care of Molly and sent me pictures every day! She really bonded with Judy's oldest son and clearly felt safe and loved. I would not hesitate to leave Molly with Judy and her family again.
Judy and her family welcomed our dog for his first stay away from our family. We were apprehensive but Judy put us at ease. She sent daily snapshots and vignettes. Charlie was in great shape when we picked him up. Thanks to Judy and her whole family for their love and affection for our dog. We'll be back!
