About Steven and Nikki

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog will love his stay with our lively family of three dogs, one teen and two adults. We will give your furry friend a vacation of their own. They will have lots of love and attention. Our family dogs are big at near a hundred pounds. Loki is a Black Lab and Leo is a rescue but we think he is a Golden Retriever mix. Selene is our newest furry family member and is about one year old. She is a foster failure from the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society whom I still foster through. Loki, Leo and Selene are friendly, lovable, and enjoy the companionship of other dogs. Our home is better suited for medium to large dogs. The entire back yard is surrounded by a five foot wooden fence. We treat our guests as part of the family, and yours will be no exception.

PLEASE NOTE: THE DAILY RATE IS FOR A 24 HOUR PERIOD. THE 24 HOURS BEGINS WITH THE TIME OF SCHEDULED DROP OFF. CARE THAT IS PROVIDED BEYOND THE 24 HOURS INCLUDED IN YOUR DAILY FEE WILL INCUR A CHARGE FOR AN ADDITIONAL DAY OF CARE. WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CHARGE FOR HALF DAY CARE WHEN A FULL DAY OF CARE IS NOT NEEDED FOR EITHER THE PICK UP OR DROP OFF DAY. WE DO USE DOGVACAY'S GUIDELINES IN OUR RESERVATIONS PROCESS. The drop off and pick times available are between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM on your scheduled days of care.

All dogs must also be current on vaccinations and be neutered/spayed.

RETURNING GUESTS SHOULD CALL OR EMAIL ABOUT OUR AVAILABILITY AS OUR CALENDAR MAY SHOW US AS UNAVAILABLE WHEN WE ARE JUST TRYING TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF DOGS THAT WE ENJOY AT ONE TIME. THANK YOU!

There are few people that really understand the Great Pyrenees breed, and Steven and Nikki are one of those rare exceptions. I trust them with my resident babes and foster Pyrs.

They know how to make the necessary comforts available to my gentle giants so that boarding is actually a joyful experience.

Nikki and Steven were very sweet to our pup Hopper!! Thank you very much for taking him on short notice also!
Steve and Nikki went all the way to accommodate my timid dog.
Steven and Nikki are such amazing dog sitters! Oreo had the BEST time- I think he wanted to stay longer. I couldn't possibly recommend them enough. Definitely doggie paradise.
Great experience
Always know my dog is in great care with them.
Nikki was fantastic. My 8 month old Frenchie likes to be around people all the time including sleeping at bedtime so a doggy hotel with a room or kennel by himself was out of the question...so having him stay with Nikki was a far better option. Nikki was great in having Sebastian meet her dogs prior to his stay to make sure it was a good fit...very impressive. Sebastian seemed happy to play with the other dogs and Nikki was very good about updating me via text and sending pics. I would use her again in a heartbeat. She is a true animal lover.

Nikki and Steven are absolutely amazing. Our dog Buddy has separation anxiety but as soon as we pull up to their house he goes crazy he can't wait to go inside to see them and play. We get picture updates throughout the day which helps us know he's happy. We are so happy we have found them I truly recommend them.

Smokie had a great time at Nikki and Steven's house! He played so much with the other dogs that he came back and slept all day! Extra bonus:) We would definitely recommend them to pet sit anyone's dog.
Our two pups had a great time! They played with other friends and came home happy. We felt our pups were safe and well cared for. Thanks Steven & Nikki!
My dog was well taken care of great experience.
Nikki and Steve were so great with Jackson. It started with the meet and greet, where Nikki introduced her three dogs one at a time to my somewhat shy Doodle. While he was there, they communicated with me when he had a seizure, Nikki spoke with a resource at Dog Vacay for guidance about how best to help him. Once we all knew he was fine, she reassured me he was welcome to stay and they watched him very closely. Even with some unexpected family issues of their own I felt they had our dog's best interest and health in mind. I would definitely recommend.

We are so happy to have found Steve and Nikki. Our Fargo has fun when we leave him and we pick up a happy (and tired) dog. He has made dog friends, experienced being part of a dog pack, and gets looked after day and night. It has been such a relief for us to have found such a dog paradise called vacation instead of boarding. Our dog has separation anxiety. A cage, loneliness and feeling abandoned would just not work for us. Now we know our fur-baby is having as much fun as we are, when we leave him with them.

Joey had a great time!
Awesome
This was our dog Bonnie Blues first stay away from us in almost 5 years. She'll be 5. We searched in a radius of 200 miles before deciding we would take her here.
We loved the homey and loving atmosphere. Both Steven and Nikki were genuine, sincere, animal lovers. Bonnie liked them right away. Their own pets greeted Bonnie and I never felt that they were a threat to her.
We weren't a bit apprehensive in living her. While we were gone Nikki sent us a picture to our phone of Bonnie Blue lying on the couch being the "Queen".
Not fancy but, FANTASTIC!!!
Thanks so much.

Every time Rocket visits he is in seventh heaven and comes home worn out and VERY pleased with himself!!
Joey had a great time! Thank you!
As always, awesome!
This was our first time leaving Leah behind but we felt very good leaving her with Steven & Nikki. Starting with the meet and greet, we saw that Leah was very comfortable there! It's obvious that Steven and Nikki love dogs and make them feel at home. Thanks, you guys, for taking care of our girl! See you next time!

Another great time for Joey. He met new friends!
Joey loved staying with you!
Zeke has a wonderful vacation with Nikki, Steven and their kids. They were the only ones that would consider taking a 4 month old pup when we looked a few months ago. Now at 7 months, Zeke is a little less cute but definitely a puppy. They were fabulous with him and helped limit his activity since he had a sore leg. We loved our daily pictures. We can't recommend Nikki and Steven enough. Thank you!

Another great stay for our dog Jake with Steven and Nikki! He has so much fun playing with their dogs Leo and Loki. He will be looking forward to his next stay and we know he will be well taken care of.
Steve and Nikki are great! They are very accommodating hosts who obviously care about what they do. They appreciate owners who check in on their pets and will even text/email you pics of your fur-baby during their stay!
Steven and Nikki were great and our ginormous dog Kaylee had a wonderful time playing-till-they-drop with their dog Leo. Nikki sent wonderful photos that clearly showed Kaylee wasn't upset at all being apart from us. Already planning a repeat visit!
This was the first time we've left Izzy. Steven & Nikki are great! I was very nervous leaving my baby because we've experienced a lot of loss over the last year. Nikki reassured me and sent me pictures each day with quick updates on how Izzy was doing. I think Izzy had as much fun on her doggie vaca as we did. We will definitely use Steven & Nikki again!

When I first met Steven and Nikki I knew they were the ones to leave my canine family member (Jake)with. Very friendly people who love dogs and treat them like their own family. Their two dogs and Jake immediately played together with no problems.
After Jake's stay over he has come home very tired from playing the whole time he was there. It's like having another day to ourselves!
We will definitely leave him with them again knowing he will be well taken care of.

Simply the best!! They love my dog and he loves them
Once again, Daisy came home happy. healthy and relaxed. Thank you soooooooooo much!
Steve and Nikki were the best choice for my black lab Russ. They already have two labs that were perfect for keeping Russ occupied while I was away. And Steve and Nikki updated me with pictures just to let me know Russ was doing alright. I'll definitely plan on booking with them again.

This was a fantastic vacation for our dog--he had so much fun playing and was taken care of so well! Thank you so much!
This is the place where "Dogs Rule". The entire family is so kind and nice, that includes the dogs Loki and Leo. Emma had a blast on her first weekend without us. Nikki sent pictures for me so I could see how much fun she was having. I am so grateful to Steve and Nikki, it's so nice to have a place for our dog to stay so close to our home where we know she is in good hands!!!!!

I love this place and so does Emma

Digger seemed to enjoy his stay with Steve and Nikki very much. I appreciated their attention to his nutritional needs and their concerns about his elderly physical constraints. But the best part was the canine companionship he had while he was there. If bassets could smile, it would be from ear to very long ear!

Steve and Nikki are my go to people when I can't have my Ben dog join me. He was so tired when he got home because he had so much fun!
Steve & Nikki did an outstanding job with Sophie, they are definitely our GO TO sitter at dogvacay place from here on, I'm so grateful I found such a wonderful loving family to care for our dog while we were gone, what a great thing to have this kind of piece of mind.

Tank is one of the family and that is exactly how Nikki and Steven treat their dogs and their guests. Tank had a great time playing with all of them and was well cared for. Nikki and Steven accomodated our crate, which is quite large as he is 180 pounds. He obsviously had a great time and was well cared for. I think he was a little sad to leave as it truly was a vacation for him as well. I will definately be back!

Great care and love for my dog. They treated him just like he was one of theirs. My dog "George" is not alaways a sucess with other dogs in the house. Not this time. George took to their two dogs within 10 seconds of arrival. He was able to relax and have a good time. Nikki kept us up to date with pictures and texts of his stay. When our trip was extended out a extra day Nikki and Steven were able to take care of George and make arrangements to pick up the next day. I feel great about using them again.

From the get aquainted session to dropping my Ben off I felt comfortable with Steve and Nikki, and also Loki and Leo their dogs. He had a weekend in "doggy heaven". He was so tired when I brought him home, he hardly moved. I would recommend them to anybody, and I would bring Ben back without a second thought.

Our dog gives the best testimonial of all! Every time we take him to stay with Steven and Nikki, as soon as we make the turn that takes us to their house he stands up in the back seat and begins to wag his tail and look out the car windows with excitement. By two blocks away, he's whining and quivering with happy anticipation, and he tries to be the first out of the car when we pull up to their house. When we pick him up at the end of his stay, he's happy, calm, acting entirely at home, and obviously satisfied with his experience. We are very grateful to have found Steven and Nikki to provide a "home away from home" for our dog.

Steven and Nikki offer very attentive, loving dog care! Our dog starts wagging his tail as soon as he sees where we're driving, and he's eager to hop out of the car to start his play day with their 2 dogs. I feel he's safe and well looked-after, and he shows me I'm right by his complete happiness after his visit. Steven and Nikki were also very accommodating when our schedule changed a bit, and that was a great help to us. I highly recommend this family for dog care. 5 STARS FOR SURE!
