It is us again. Amy and David and family are still providing the same great care. Our Joe always returns to us in great shape. He may have more fun on his vacation than we do. See our prior comments. I think you will find they say it all. Susan and Lee And Joe .

David and Amy continue to be such great hosts to our dog. I never worry for a second she isn't getting the best TLC while I'm away!

Amy and David exceeded our expectations! They took wonderful care of your dogs and made them feel like they were part of the family. They sent daily photos and videos which totally put our mind at ease. For the first time ever we knew we could relax and enjoy our vacation knowing the dogs were in good hands. We felt very blessed to have found Amy and David ( and family) to take care of our dogs.

I can't say enough great things about David & Amy! Our guys were in such great hands while we were on vacation. We received several pictures along with our daily update. The pups looked like they were having so much fun that my husband didn't think they'd want to come home with us. David, Amy and family really went out of their way to make sure they were taken cafe of - even so far as to build an outdoor amp for our old guy who has trouble with stairs. We will definitely be calling on them again!

We just had our "trial run" one night stay with David and Amy and the pups came home exhausted. David and Amy went out of their way to make sure that our boys were comfortable and safe. The boys are heading back over in a few days for their week long stay. We'll be able to relax on vacation knowing that they are in good hands!

Dave & Amy's family was very accommodating with our families schedule. Had an opportunity for our dog, Draco, to meet their family and another client. Will use Dave & Amy in the future.
This was the first time we decided to use Dog Vacay instead of a kennel for Bella. I was hoping she would be in a loving environment, have fun, and enjoy her time while we were away instead of being cooped up in a kennel. We had such a GREAT experience and felt completely comfortable and confident when we met David and Amy ahead of time, that they would take great care of our special furry family member. They took extra care with her and sent pictures and video of how much fun Bella was having. Bella seemed to settle right in with them. We will definitely use them again!!!

Dave and Amy and their entire family were great! They made sure that Lily, our Cockapoo, was a right fit for their family and other booked dog before accepting our reservation. Daily updates and pictures each day were great to know that all was well. I will definitely be booking with Dave and Amy again.

Hi!
My name is Beautiful Joe -after the story book. I am a rescue dog, and I now have a great forever home, but I have something more! I have a second home also with a second mom and dad and two great buddies, Daniel and Brooke. I was just on just on vacation with my second family for four weeks, and I had a wonderful time. They are really good to me and give me bunches of love and attention. When I first arrive for my visits, I scratch at the door to get in to see them. (That makes my mom and dad feel really good.) They also really like it that they get updates about me and pictures of me and my buddies. I am so glad they found my second home for me. OK, I confess Mom and Dad
helped me write this, but I sniffed it really well and it is every bit true. I promise that any pup who visits Amy and Dave and family will be one happy pup.

Truly wonderful experience! Our Coco was so happy staying with Amy & David and family. Knowing that our dog was in such great care, we enjoyed our own vacation all the more. Thank you for Dogvacay for finding us such professional and caring petsitting! Will definitely use this sitter again. Excellent !

Great stay for our greyhound! Amy and David are so caring and thoughtful. They rally go the extra mile for the pet and the parents :) we will definitely be utilizing their services in the very near future.
We were so happy with Amy and David! (Daniel too! ) I felt very comfortable from the initial meeting and we loved the photos they sent us every day so we could see our fur babies and know they were ok while we were away! The dogs did great! A special shout out to Daniel (Amy & David's son) who really paid extra attention to the dogs and seemed to love on them just like we do! A home away from home for Kirby, Cuervo and Corona! Thank you once again Amy, David and Daniel!

Amy and David are hands down the best dog babysitters I've every worked with. They were in touch with me every day during my trip, often sending me pictures. They accommodated all of Benny's needs, doing their best to recreate his normal routine - including letting him sit on their couch! Their young son became best friends with Benny, and played with him all the time. They lovingly put up with Benny's constant requests to go in and out - and in and out - into their fabulous, big back yard. And they even arranged a couple of play dates with the neighbors dog! Five big stars for Amy and David!!

Amy and family were great as always. joe loves them and was obviously well cared for and cared about. when you leave your beloved pet with them you can leave your worries behind. Susan M.
our Joe's last 2 visits with Amy, David and family were great as always. we could not say enough good things about them. I am not sure their care and attention could be surpassed by anyone. sometimes I am not sure he wants to come home. We feel very fortunate to have found them. as soon as I finish this I am booking a new reservation.

Amy, David, and their entire family were amazing hosts for our dog bubba! We were very worried about leaving our dog alone for an extended time and thought he would get sad- they made him feel totally at home. They took him for walks, played ball with him, let him sleep in their daughters bedroom, and gave him a ton of attention throughout the day. They have a wonderful fenced in backyard that bubba was able to spend hours exploring.
Not only that, Amy sent us daily updates with pictures and videos so we would see exactly how our pup was doing. We really appreciated that, as it made us feel more relief.
We definitely would recommend Amy and David to anyone looking for a home away from home for their dog.

Amy and Dave came through like champs when I needed a place for Cowboy to stay when I had to leave my apartment because of flooding. The "pet-friendly" hotel I booked and paid for in advance didn't actually accept pets, so I was in a real jam. Thank God for people like Amy and Dave who didn't hesitate to help out, even with a last minute request! They're the best and I am so glad I got to know them through DogVacay.

Amy and David were terrific!! It was our first time using dog vacay or perfect strangers for that matter to watch our dog. Our dog (a German short hair pointer) is full of energy, pure muscle akin to a steam train on leash and is fetch / ball / pine cone obsessed. Needless to say we're very careful who we have watch her. We received multiple updates a day both video and photos. Our dog was loved on, snuggled, spoilt with so much attention and was walked daily too. Couldn't have asked for a better first experience using Amy and David and their family! highly recommend. :)

Pawsome is the best word for Amy and David's care of our beloved Beautiful Joe. Prior to our leaving Joe, Amy asked good and careful questions so that Joe would not only have good care, but the care he is accustomed to. Texts, videos and pictures arrived every day,to let us see l how happy our Joe was.

Amy made a point of letting us know thatJoe fit in well with the family, and that they valued having him there.

When Joe is with Amy, we do not worry about him.

Can anything more important be said?

This was the second time our Lexi stayed with Amy & David. I can't say enough about the hospitality they showed our 12-year old baby! They kept in touch with us on a daily basis during her weeklong stay. It was so obvious that they treated her as their own. We are so appreciative of the loving care they provided her. It was great to be away and know that she was in the very best hands! We will definitely use them in the future!

That was a wonderful time for our dog Cosmo. He had a great time with Amy und David. We will miss u guys so much. You took the best care of Cosmo. Thank you for everything. Best regards Jennifer, Christoph and Cosmo:)
Amy & David and their delightful family were wonderful hosts for our Bella for 10 days while we went on a European vacation. We never had a worry, as it was very evident from the start that Bella would be loved there.
Amy sent daily updates and pictures, and we always knew Bella was having a great stay.
This is a family that loves dogs, and will take wonderful care of yours.
We highly recommend them!

Amy and David are the best hosts ever! They are super kind and caring to Noelle and always send lots of updates. This family is the absolute best and takes wonderful care of our dog every time! I would highly recommend them.
Domino is repeat customer with Amy and David. Amy and David treat Domino like a member of their family. He loves it at their house! Amy does such a good job of giving us updates and letting us know how Domino is doing. Domino loves this family!...and we do too. I can not recommend them enough! They are wonderful!

Amy David Brook and Daniel were great! They took the best care of our two labs! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our babies we spoiled with love and attention. We wouldn't leave them with any other family!
This was Inda's third time staying a full week with Amy and her family. As always, Inda had a great time running around in their big backyard and receiving all the cuddles and kisses she could ever hope for. It's a huge relief to know my dog is having as much of a good time as I am on vacation!

Domino is a repeat guest at Amy and Dave's house. They are the best! They are so accommodating and treat Domino as a family Member. I never have to worry when Domino is with their family. They are wonderful. ....and so appreciated.
Once again, Amy and her family took great care of my 2y lab. They really go above and beyond to make sure your pet is cared for. I know my dog is already looking forward to her next stay in 6 weeks!
It was a great time for our dog Cosmo:) See u the next time. Thank you! Best regards Jenny, Christoph & Cosmo
Beautiful Joe is an affection- needy rescue dog, who lives for approval and love. From the first meet and greet Amy showed that she has great knowledge of dogs, and wants any dog they keep to be cared for to perfection, and loved - and our Joe was. She kept us informed of Joe's doings with email and sweet pictures, and let us know he fit into their family well. That was a blessing to us, because we want everyone involved in Joe's care to cherish him. Amy took a very thorough history, asked tons of questions, and let us know that Joe would be a priority while he was there. We were very very satisfied with Amy and David's care of our Beautiful Joe.

Bella had an amazing time with Amy and her family we could tell by every picture and video they sent us! They have an amazing response rate and I don't think we could have picked anyone better! Definitely would recommend them!
Our dog Cosmo had a amazing time by Amy and David. It was great. The care for Cosmo was very lovely. Cosmo was a part from their family and this is fantastic:) See you the next time:) Best regards Jennifer & Cosmo
Leaving our dog with Amy & David was a no-brainer after reading all the reviews and speaking with Amy on the phone. If my dog could speak, I'm certain he'd tell me he had a great vacation as well! I received videos and pictures a couple times each day which allowed me to relax while away. Our dog is such a huge part of our family, it was important to place him somewhere we knew he'd get the same amount of attention and love. We would definitely use them again!

You could not find better "vacation parents" for your dog than Amy and David. We usually have a neighbor or family member watch our 75 lb. Olde English Bulldogge, so I was hoping for the best and ended up with a family I will consider friends forever. Amy texted me videos and pictures with notes twice a day, every day! Everyone in the family participates in the care of the visiting dog. Amy and David plus their children were all playmates for my Barney. They even bought my dog a bone and some treats after checking with me to be sure it was OK. In every picture or video, I could see that my dog was having a great time - getting exercise, having snuggle time, and lots and lots of playtime in their big backyard. This family is every dog owners dream of in-home care. I have to admit that my dog is spoiled and I expect a lot of anyone that comes in contact with him and I couldn't be happier with the experience we had. He was treated with kindness by the entire family and that's what is most important. I will leave Barney with Amy and David any time, without any reservations, and know he will get the care, love, and attention I want for him when we are away. I wish I could rate this experience higher than a 5 star. I love this family!

Amy and her family were wonderful to our dog during her week-long stay and we won't hesitate to use them again if the same situation arises. Due to unusual circumstances, we were in need of somewhere for Piper to stay that was at our vacation destination. When I first contacted Amy, she was understanding of the situation. She was willing to chat on the phone and communicate through email so that we could get to know each other, our families and our dog to make sure that we would be a good fit for one another. Luckily for us, Piper was a good fit for them and they were a good fit for us! Amy was diligent about keeping things 'as close to normal' as possible for Piper. She was kept to the same schedule, her expectations were the same as at home (no begging, etc) so that her transition when she arrived home was smooth sailing.
We got daily updates so there was never a question about how Piper was doing without us.
Thank you so much, Amy and family for taking such good care of our 4-legged baby!! We are all very grateful!
Dog Vacay is the absolute best!!

Sadie and Henry had another great visit with Amy and David and their kids. I feel confident that they are getting lots of attention when they go to their house. This is their second visit and I know we will be calling them soon for another visit. Amy does a great job on keeping you informed how the dogs are doing throughout their visit.

Amy and David were great hosts to our dog. They treated her as if she was their dog. The correspondence by email, photos and videos kept us fully in the loop as to what was happening every day. Both of their children were great to our dog and kept her constant company. We highly recommend Amy and David to anyone looking for a great home for their pet.

Amy, Dave and their family feel like my own family after so many great visits Cowboy has had in their home while I am traveling for work. Unfortunately, right before this trip, Cowboy had some kind of allergic reaction and was prescribed liquid Benadryl by the vet. I was afraid it might be a problem because he hated taking it, but Amy and Dave were gracious and gave Cowboy special care. They were as considerate and thoughtful as always, sending daily messages, pictures and videos. It was comforting not to have to worry about Cowboy and to know he was with a family who loves him as much as I do!

First and foremost thanks to Amy and David for taking great care of my Boxer. They were incredibly accommodating to what my pet was already used to, including eating and sleeping habits, which allows for a much easier transition to a new environment. They sent plenty of updates and pictures while I was gone so I could be sure that all was going well. I highly recommend Amy and David the next time your pet needs a dog vacation.

Amy, David and family are great hosts! They took good care of Noelle and made sure she got lots of love and attention.
Noelle got lots of exercise, play with the other dog staying with them and plenty of care from everyone in this family.
I would highly recommend them for a future stay!

Amy, David and family are great hosts! They took good care of Noelle and made sure she got lots of love and attention.
Amy is very good about sending lots of updates and pictures so we were always reassured that our dog was having a great time.
This was her first time staying with another dog and Amy went the extra mile to make sure both dogs were comfortable together and getting along well right off the bat.
I would highly recommend them for future dog stays, and Noelle looks forward to staying with them again!

I contacted Amy after a high recommendation and she and her family really took care of my Sofie making her feel comforttAble within minutes.

Belle had a great time! Amy and David were great, caring hosts! They kept me updated with photos and texts! Belle can't wait to visit again! The family's love of animals will make your dog feel at home!
My 13 month old lab (Inda) had a wonderful time at Amy and David's house. Not only did she get Amy's full attention, but she also received love from her husband and their two wonderful kids. I received daily updates on how my dog was doing, and was able to more fully enjoy my vacation knowing that my dog was having fun too! I know Inda had a blast running around in their spacious backyard, getting lots of play time as well as just relaxing in their nice house. When I came back from vacation to pick up my dog, I was greeted by a happy healthy dog, who promptly fell asleep on the way home! Whenever I am able to take a vacation again, Amy and David will be my first choice for Inda. This was my first time using dogvacay, and I was very impressed with the professionalism of Amy and her knowledge about dogs and dog behavior. Thanks again!!

Leaving our babies with Amy and David was a great experience. I was very nervous at first but Amy was great about sending me pictures and videos and putting me at ease. Henry our Golden just had ACL surgery 7 weeks prior to our vacation and they made sure he did not over do it and he was in great shape when we returned. I would not hesitate to leave them with Amy and David again and plan to. Their kids were also great with the dogs and I know they had fun because when we got them home they slept most of the first day which is always a good sign. I feel Amy and David treated our dogs like their own and I look forward to a long relationship with Amy and David.

I was so thankful for the good relationship my dog and I have developed with Amy & David's whole family, especially when I had to call at the last minute for an unexpected trip out of state for work. When I drive up to their house, Cowboy doesn't hesitate to run up to the door as if we were home. I think the biggest measure of what a good job Amy & Dave do is that there is no disruption of our daily routine after a trip, as there was in the past when Cowboy was upset when I had to leave for a trip. I can't recommend this family enough and they will alway be my first choice to call when I travel!

I am very happy with Belle's stay with Amy, David and Family! Belle couldn't have received more love and attention! Amy sent daily updates, photos and videos. They even made her a pull toy as an Easter present!
Amy was also understanding toward some of my circumstances and made drop off and pick up less stressful. I really appreciate that!
I would highly recommend their services, the whole family truly will give your pet at home away from home!
Belle looks forward to her next stay!!

I can not recommend Amy & David enough. Really. Amy did an awesome job of keeping us informed on how our dog was doing. She and her family showered him with with love and affection. I was really worried about leaving my dog during our family vacation, but Amy's updates and her communication put me at ease. My dog was loved...so much. And he was treated as part of the family. This experience was so wonderful! Truly. I highly recommend Amy and David. Thank you so much for taking such great care of our Domino.

Our dog had a great stay with this loving family and they sent plenty of pictures and updates showing how well everyone was getting along. Definitely will have her stay with them again!
Amy & David's family were amazing! I think our pups enjoyed staying with them more than they do when they stay with family. This is our first time using Dog Vacay and from the first message to picking up our pups, Amy & David have been incredibly helpful and answered any questions we have had. I didn't have a single worry while my two were in their care and we received several updates with pictures showing my two really happy and content. They are nice and extremely loving and showed our pups the love and caring that we had hoped for, my two were spoiled with plenty of attention and affection; we will definitely continue to work with this family as much as we can. Amy, David, and family-thank you again for making our first experience better than we ever expected.

Fantastic communication throughout my dog's stay! They really made me feel like family or close friends were watching my Daisy, which was great. We had a family emergency, and they came through in a pinch.

Thanks again! I highly recommend Amy and David!

Everything worked out perfectly! Amy & David and family were wonderful caregivers for our dog, providing the home-away-from-home setting that we had hoped for. All went according to plan, from the Meet & Greet, to drop-off and pick-up, with photos and texts through-out, our minds were put at ease because we knew Riesie was in a loving, safe environment. We highly recommend Amy & David and look forward to our next opportunity to send Riesie on her doggie-vacay!

Amy and David were a pleasure to work with, and sent us pictures and updates daily while we were on vacation. we honestly could not have asked for a better family to take care of our dog in our absence. I would highly recommend Amy and David to anyone looking to board their dog. Next time we go away we would definitely go to them before anyone or anyplace else.

Leaving my chihuahua with Amy and David is like leaving my best friend in the care of my family. It's a real blessing to have connected with such great people and I'm very thankful for the peace of mind that comes from knowing my little dog is in good hands when I am traveling for work. Highly recommended!

The Mastro fam took wonderful care of our little buddy. They were personable, reliable, and I could tell how much they cared about my pup. I will definitely request them again!
Amy and David and their entire family were wonderful! This was an awesome experience for our family as well! Amy and David and their children even made a play toy for our puppy! They went above and beyond to make sure that our puppy had a happy place to stay in our absence! We absolutely would return!

This was my first time with DogVacay and I happened to connect with a first time host family. It was a match made in heaven and I couldn't be more pleased with the experience. Amy, Dave and their children welcomed my dog as a member of the family and made the time of separation much easier for me to bear. Their home is spacious and immaculate, plus their huge fenced-in backyard is like a dream Puppy Playland. It was a great experience and I highly recommend my new friends to whoever needs a good, reliable and trustworthy host family to take care of their pet.
