About Rob

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Me, my wife Becky, and son Josh love dogs. We have a nice sized, secure, fenced in back yard for the dogs to play. We also enjoy taking walks with our guest pups every day.

My wife is home most of the time during the week. While I work full time, I am able to work from home once a week. The entire family is around on weekends. So you can rest assured that someone will be home with your dog almost all of the time during their stay.

We felt very comfortable sending Daisy on vacay with Rob. Especially the meet and greet visit before the actual vacay made us and Daisy feel comfortable.
Rob kept us informed about how Daisy was doing several times during our week long vacation.
The best part was that Daisy had friends to play with during her stay and was free to roam around the house.
Rob and Becky were wonderful hosts and caretakers to our 2 pups between the holidays while we visited family out of town! They accommodated Sargeant Pepper and Penny Lane on short notice, were flexible when we requested time changes and were reasonably priced. (Boarding multiple pups can get really expensive!) Most important, our pups came home happy. I am sure we will be using Rob and Becky's services again, and would recommend them to others.
Thanks and Happy New Year!
Rob and Becky are just great taking care of Sissy. They are very loving and caring and extremely helpful. When my husband had to go to hospital at the last minute they agreed to take care of her.. Rob keeps us up to date by texting us. They are great! Thanks Rob and Becky. Queta
Thank you Rob and Becky for you constant care and love to Lexus and Bentley. We were able to enjoy our 1st Year anniversary trip thanks to you both knowing they are well taken care of!
First time boarding our dog here and it was great!!
We booked a 9 night stay for our dog while we were overseas. Unfortunately, our dog has a recurring ear issue. Rob was very attentive to our dog's needs and wrote to us concerned about her comfort. Our dog was welcome on their couch. We knew she was in good hands.
This was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't happier. We never left our dog with anyone but family. Rob was is a professional and made us feel at ease. He gave us updates via text and photos. Thanks Rob
All went smoothly when I left my Australian shepherd, Riley, with Rob for several days--and he was kind enough to send me updates on how my boy was doing.
Winslow had a great time with Rob and his wife. I really appreciated the emails and photos that Rob sent to update me throughout the week. This was the longest stretch that I had left Win and I was a little anxious, but Rob helped to ease my fears when we had the meet and greet prior to booking. I would definitely bring Winslow back for another stay!
Once again Millie seemed happy and healthy and Rob and family were very accommodating when our flight was delayed and we got in late to pick Millie up. Thanks Rob!!
Rob and his family made Hudson and Cody feel right at home! They had complete freedom which is what we give them at home. Rob updated us with pictures and texts daily. It was nice to see them lounging on the sofa and running in the yard. Highly recommended!!
Great experience!! This was our dog's first stay with anyone on DogVacay, and we are very happy with our experience. Rob was very accommodating, it was easy to schedule a Meet & Greet, and the overall experience was truly 5 Star. We would highly recommend for a stay - great people!! thanks again!
As usual Rob and his family treated our dog like she was part of their family. She had a wonderful vacation while we had a wonderful vacation. They are a great family and a great host for our dog. They make everything so simple without any stress for our family and our dog.

Thanks again!!!!
We had a great first time experience with Rob and his family. They were very accommodating with our older dog. We received text updates and pictures, which were appreciated. Our dog was very well taken care of and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Thank you!
My dog had such a great time! Came home very tired.
I didn't want to put our dogs in a kennel and I was nervous leaving our dogs with a pet-sitter; we always left them with family in the past. Rob and Becky were very nice and accommodating. It is clear that they love dogs! Both dogs seemed very comfortable and made themselves right at home! I also loved that Rob took the time to send us daily updates and photos.
Rob and his family are awesome. They treated my dog like she was part of their family. Couldn't ask for any better service. See you soon. Ed
Leaving my two pups with Rob and Becky brings such a comfort in knowing they will be treated well and included as a member of the family. I highly recommend Rob E.!
Needless to say, it was difficult for me to leave my dog Nero behind for a week while our family vacationed out of the country. It was very warming to receive daily emails from Rob with updates of Nero's status which put my mind at ease and allowed me to relax and enjoy my vacation with very little worry about his well being. I would not think twice about leaving my dog with Rob and highly recommend him to anyone requiring a caring temporary home for their four legged family member.
We were so happy with the care our pug Ellie received from Rob & his family! Our 2 little girls loved seeing pictures & updates of Ellie during her stay. We highly recommend Rob & the care he provided for our dog!
As always, Rob and Becky were great hosts. We always know Winston is in good hands, and that he will be cared for as if he were in his own home. Also, thanks for the pictures of Win with his Vacay pals! Thanks again!
They were an excellent host for our pup. They were even able to accommodate him for an extra night when our flight got delayed last minute.
Great and loving environment!
Rob did a great job. He sent us pics and updates along the way. Would definitely use again
Rob and his wife and son were fantastic! My husband and I were afraid to leave our rescue dog with strangers at first, but once we received updates from Rob on how our dog was doing, it put our minds at ease. Frankie was well taken care of and seemed very happy when we picked him up. We will use Rob's services again for sure!
Can't thank these 2 wonderful people enough. They opened their home and their hearts to my 4 legged children.
Millie is very much on the nervous side but I think we have found home away from home for her with Rob and his family. Thank you!
Everything from our searching for a sitter for our Winston, the reservation system, and all of our contacts with Rob and his family was wonderful. We appreciated the care Win received and the updates he sent us while we were away.

We will certainly use Rob again!

It was great all around.
Rob & Becky were great with Rosie, our 14 year old Yorkie! He sent us texts while we were on our vacation, reassuring us that Rosie was doing fine! They were very accommodating about drop off & pick up times, too! It was refreshing to know that Rosie was well-taken care of while we were gone! We would definitely use them again! :)
Rob and Becky accommodated us last minute and we are grateful! The dogs really seem to enjoy staying there. They are so easy to work with. Glad to have them available for our kids!!
Rob and Becky took great care of Lexus and Bentley while they were there. We were getting married and had no worries. Rob and Becky even helped us by bringing them to the wedding so we could take some pictures with them!
Rob and his family are great. He understands the importance of having a "meet and greet" and in our case (our dog gets very anxious in new settings) he even proposed to have a second one. You could tell he is very experienced and he just wanted to make sure our dog was comfortable. When the day to drop our dog came, he was still a little bit uneasy but Rob took all the time in the world to make him (and us!) feel the stay was possible. We traveled abroad, so when the texts were not going through, he immediately started sending us emails so we would not miss the updates he regularly sends. All I have to say is: by the end of his stay, our dog Chorizo was sleeping on their bed just as he does at home. That's how good Rob and his family are. Don't look for any other sitter, this is your dog's home away from home! We can't thank them enough.
No worries, I know my dog is in good hands and she loves going! Sandy
Our dog had a great time at Rob's home. She was treated like one of the family. Thank you for taking such good care of our little Dolce! I would not hesitate to reserve Rob for vacation or day care.
My dog had a great stay with Rob and Becky. He always enjoys playing with the other dogs. Rocky is always well taken care of and comes home happy!
Teddy had a terrific time on his dog vacay with Rob and his family. He had so much fun playing with the other dogs and I think he got even more attention than he does at home!! It's comforting to know he has a great family to stay with when his is away!!
Pretzel seems to have had a perfect vacation, as did we! We did not worry about how she was doing, as Rob sent emails as well as texts to let us know frequently! Will definitely recommend Rob & his family to anyone looking for great pet care!
Rob and Becky are awesome. We have two big dogs and they were able to make them feel right at home while we were away... in fact, according to the pictures they sent us, our dogs made themselves right at home!
My dog Maiya has stayed with Rob and Becky many times now and her most recent stay was for 2 weeks, which is the longest I have left her. Every time she is there, I know she is well taken care of and having fun and I never have to worry. She starts getting excited right when we pull up their driveway and she realizes where she is. Rob always keeps me updated on how things are going by sending pictures and texts. I would highly recommend. Thanks for making Maiya feel right at home and taking such good care of her!
Rob is easy to deal with when scheduling. My dog loves going and has stayed at least a dozen times and all is great always.
Reggie had an awesome time with Rob and his family. Rob took the time to acclimate Reggie to the new surroundings and other dogs. He made me feel at ease and texted me each day. We will definitely book again!
This weekend was Bruce Lee's first visit. He apparently had a wonderful time. He is looking forward to his next stay.
My dog Coco's stay with Rob and his family was wonderful. It was our first time going away for a week after getting our new dog. Rob made us feel very comfortable leaving Coco. While we were away, we received pictures throughout the week of Coco. That was very thoughtful and put us at ease while we were gone. Thank you for a great stay!
Rob and Becky were wonderful and kept us informed on how our girls were getting along on the extended stay. It was comforting to know that Daisy and Molly were in good hands. Thanks to both of you!
Wonderful experience! Rob and family were so easy to communicate with, quick to respond, and flexible with scheduling. We received picture and text updates during his stay and felt completely comfortable leaving him in their care. It is evident that they really love the animals and treat their guests as part of the family. We would highly recommend!
Very nice family. They quickly respond. I would not hesitate.
Lester had a wonderful time & Rob & his wonderful wife were very accommodating & took excellent care of Lester. I highly recommend them!
Rob and Becy were great would definitely use them again. I received daily emails from Rob. Kelly just made her self at home when I dropped her off. Rob and his family treated Kelly as if she was theirs. This was the first vacation I didn't have to worry beceasue I know Kelly was in good hands.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay and leaving our two dogs with anyone in six years. We put our dogs in a kennel last year, and will never do it again. Because of the bad experience we had with leaving our dogs in a kennel, we were afraid to leave them again. Rob and Becky made us feel so comfortable leaving our dogs with them. Rob sent me texts and pictures the whole time we were away, it was so comforting to us! Rob and Becky are wonderful people and really understand dogs and what they need. If you are afraid leaving your beloved dogs, don't be afraid leaving them with Rob and Becky! We highly recommend Rob and Becky to everyone, and we rate them a 5 for Pawsome!!
Becky, Rob and son were so welcoming and went out of their way to learn about Daisy and Molly, their personalities and habits. We already have another stay planned in the few months. Thanks so much!
Our dogs are so happy and content with Rob and his family! We went away on a 8 day trip and didn't worry about them once. Both dogs require medication Rob administered and they looked great upon return! They are quite a handful but rob and family are always up for the tasks! You can feel confident in booking with them!!!!!!
This was Jackson and Leonidas 2nd visit this summer. They stayed for 4 days and came home well exersized. They LOVE spending time with Rob and his family. Thank you for taking such good care of my boys. Will be visiting again soon
Thanks Rob, Becky, and Josh for taking care of Lex and Ben while we are on our Disneymoon for the week! It really put me in a peace of mind knowing you guys are taking care of them. I think Lexus really enjoyed herself! She is so tired when she got home that she is just sleeping it off. You would think she is the one that was in Orlando walking around for a week! Thanks again so much!!!
My two pups spent 6 days with Rob and his family and they loved it. I never worry while I am away when they are there because Rob and his family take great care of the boys.He sends me photo messages and updates throughout the week. I came home to happy excersized puppies. Thank you so much Rob and see you in a few weeks.
We have been using Rob for over a year and my 15 year old dog loves going and it is great not to worry about her care when I travel. We also had my son's dog for 7 months and left the 5 year old there a couple of times and he loved it.
Our dog Woodrow is still a puppy and requires a lot of work. Rob and his family were very friendly and were able to accommodate all of our requests. Woodrow received a lot of attention and we would be comfortable leaving him there again. They are true Dog People.
This is the second stay at Rob's home for my little one, Miracle. Because he is such shy dog, it takes him a while to warm up to new environments and for that reason, I am a little apprehensive about leaving him in the care of others, because he becomes home sick and won't eat or socialize; however, I've become quite comfortable when he's in Rob's and Becky's hands because I know he will get the additional attention needed to help him adjust to his new environment until my return. Thanks again guys for your time, attention and patience in handling Mr. Miracle.
This was Jake's 3rd stay with Rob, Becky and Josh. They are as always awesome with him and us. Jake comes home happy and tired. You can tell from the moment you meet Rob and his family they are wonderful people that truly love dogs. They take such great care of the dogs and treat them as one of the family. I would and do highly recommend Rob to everyone I know that has a dog and is looking for a place to take them while vacationing. There is no better feeling than knowing your pet is in a warm loving environment while you are away.
Thank you rob and josh for taking such awesome care of our boys! Didn't worry about them once when we were gone for 6 days!! Got pics and they were clearly in heaven....they look forward to lounging with you again. Thanks!
Rob was so kind to our dog Tanner who is a 9 year old cockapoo and has had trouble getting along with other dogs due to being attacked by another dog a few years ago. Rob made sure Tanner felt at home and had his own space from any other dog guest in their home. Rob even let Tanner sleep with him at night.
My husband and I were coming home in a snow storm and Rob and his son Josh adjusted their schedule to allow us to pick Tanner up earlier so we could be off the roads during the worst part of the storm.
I would highly recommend Rob and his family as wonderful caretakers for any pet.
Once again Darwin had a great time with Rob and his family. I definitely will continue to use this host and recommend them to others.
Sissy's stay with Rob, Becky and Josh was great, both the Thanksgiving and Christmas ones. She loves staying there and seems to feel at home with them. Becky says that in the mornings she goes into their bedroom and jumps on Rob, which is what she does here at home. Rob keeps us posted on how she is and sends pictures and over the Christmas holiday went to get her allergy pills at CVS as hers had fallen in the car. I would recommend him implicitly. Thanks Rob and family.

Kaiser had a wonderful time on his vacation with Rob and Becky. This was his second visit and he enjoyed the time with their dog as well as one other guest. They are wonderful hosts, the regular text messages and photos really make me feel comfortable while I am away. When I return Kaiser is happy to see me, playful and well adjusted, such a difference from the kennel experience. Thanks again Rob and Becky!
Stuart came home happy and relaxed after his dogvacay with Rob and Becky.Rob was very accommodating with my last minute changes in plans. He sent frequent updates and photos of Stuart.Was very prompt in replying to my messages.
Rob and his family were an ideal dog vacation for Darwin! Rob had sent continuous updates, including pics of Darwin's stay. I felt comfortable that Darwin was in safe and reliable hands. This is a host that I will use repeatedly and have already recommended to others. Thank you so much Rob, Becky, and Josh!
Rufus loves to stay at the Canine's Chalet! These folks are great with all kinds of dogs. They are patient and caring and I would not think of leaving my dog with anyone else. In fact, he would probably like to stay with Rob & Becky all the time if he could. They watched him during a 3 month out of town job awhile back and I did not worry for a minute about him, because I knew he was with his "foster family." Could not recommend highly enough!
Rob, Becky, and Josh took such great care of Lexus and Ben. We got daily updates on how there were doing and knew things were going well when Ben ate that first night. They even had Lexus sleeping in bed with Josh because she sleeps with us at night. I think if Lexus had a choice, she would have wanted to stay longer! Thank you Rob, Becky, and Josh for easing my mind so we can now travel more!!
Rob,his wife, and son were very accomodating for my fiance, myself, and Rocky! We went away for six nights and booke dthe reservation about a week before hand. We arranged a meet and greet with their dog and another they were watching which made us feel great meeting them before hand and having Rocky roam the area. When we dropped him off they allowed us to bring anything we wanted Rocky to have. While on our vacation Rob sent us pictures and updates via text message which was great, as we knew he was having a blast and was most of all with a safe and very caring family while we were away. We will certainly book with Rob again in the future!
Rob and his family were a perfect match for our Rocky! He got plenty of attention and even slept in bed with Rob's son, Josh. Rob sent me pictures and updates, so that I was able to completely relax on my vacation without worrying about my fur baby. I would recommend this family to anyone that loves their dog, like it's their own child!
Rob, Becky and Josh took care of Sissy twice this month, and, of course, it was as good as always. Thanks to you three and see you soon.
This is the second time we left Chloe with Rob & Family. They are great with our special needs dog. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dog vacation, they are great people. Charlie & Jane
Rob and his family are great people and they took good care of my dog while I was away. They sent me updates and pictures to let me know everything was going great. She had so much fun playing with other dogs there and she took a long nap when she got home! We have already booked Rob twice and I'm sure we will be again the future. It is so nice to know that I don't have to worry when my dog is there!
Rob and Becky took good care of Sissy, gave her her medications and let us know how she was doing with a picture and email. As a matter of fact, Sissy will be going back for another stay this Saturday. Q.J.
As always Jesse and Shelby had such a good time, came home happy and tired. Rob and Becky take such good care of them. Thanks guys
Kaiser had a wonderful time on vacation. Their home is very nice and well adapted for four legged family members with area rugs and beautiful fenced in back yard. On our first meeting the back yard with the lovely gardens provided lots of sniffing opportunities. He enjoyed having some other dogs for company.
Rob made sure he asked questions to find out what Kaiser liked and didn't like so his vacation would be easy. I liked the daily text message and photo. Kaiser came home happy, healthy and a little tired.
We were gone for 10 days on family vacation- never worried about our 2 dogs once. Always got great pics of them and knew they were in good hands. Both required meds at the time and everything was given as needed and they were much improved upon our return. Thanks Rob and family!
Shelby and Jesse had a great time, They love going there. They take wonderful care of them. Thanks so much
Jackson and Leonidas had a wonderful time with Rob and his family. He treated the pups like his own and sent me tons of picture and text updates on how they were doing. The pups came home well exersized and happy. I felt very comfortable knowing that my babies were happy and with a loving family. They will be spending a week with Rob and his family again soon.
Thank you so much!
As always Jake came home tired and happy,
Rob, Becky and Josh are awesome, they cared for Jake and their other guests wonderfully all the while their poor Michaela was in the hospital. Thankfully she made a turn for the better by the time we got back (we will keep praying for her full recovery). It is such a good feeling leaving Jake in such caring hands. Wish we found you all sooner!
Thank you
Shelby and Jesse had a great time, They were exercised and get treated very well. Thanks Rob and Becky.
Bailey loves it here. he gets very excited when we pull up to the house. The family is attentive and bailey gets many chances to play. He even went into the family pool. Communication with the family is awesome.
He is amazing :)
Rob and his family couldn't have been better pet sitters. We have a special needs puggle, needs medication, they took great care of Chloe. She was well taken care of, we highly recommend Rob. We were very happy with his services. We have told several people about DogVacay. Thanks Rob, Becky, and Josh.
Charlie, Jane and Chloe
As usual, Bailey was excited to be at Rob's house. He met new friends and revisited with old friends. He returned home in good spirits. During his stay Rob emailed us pictures of bailey enjoying himself and gave us information about his stay while we were gone.
As always, Casey's stay with Rob, Becky and Josh was great. It's his favorite home away from home.
Rob and his family provided a caring and safe home for my dog while we were out of town. We met Rob a couple weeks prior to our booking and when our dog came back for her stay she was so excited to be back.
We were sent text updates and pictures throughout her stay. We were very happy to hear that she was doing great and having a fun time.
I would definitely recommend Rob and will be using his services again.
Rob and his family were great. The took my dogs for a walk and played with them- got pics and never worried about them. Thanks a ton!
This sweet family treated my doggie like a family member, which is what we were looking for.
This was our first time leaving Haley with Rob and Becky. She was well taken care of and we received daily pictures and updates which was very reassuring! It is obvious how much they love dogs and their home is very dog friendly. Haley is already booked for her June vacation! Thanks for all the love and attention you gave to Haley!
Rob and his family are wonderful! We are very particular with who we leave Sammie with, actually Rob's family is the first family outside of my own that he has been with. I would highly recommend them, they took such good care of Sammie and sent us pictures while we were on vacation. Rob E. and his family are now Sammie's foster family.
Rob and Becky took great care of our dogs on short notice when we were faced with a family emergency.
Sissy's stay with Rob and family was great. They took her for walks, gave her the medicine and vitamins and she seemed very happy. She bonded with Josh, Rob's son, and would lay down by him.
I would definitely recommend Rob and also would leave Sissy with him again.
a perfect family environment. kokoa was well taken care of just like he is at home. their pet mecaela was a great companion who's company he enjoyed. had quick response and update from Rob n pictures for us to see how happy and comfortable he was. It just made our vacation stress free knowing that kokoa was with a great fun loving n caring family.
I couldn't ask for a better host for Casey. Rob, Becky and Josh take wonderful care of our dog. This is our second time letting them watch Casey and being gone 10 days without worrying was a tremendous relief.
Sunshine was well taken care of and I really appreciated the daily updates and photos!
Rob, Becky and Josh are great! Jake came home happy and well. They were so accommodating to us with our ever changing drop off and pick up times. The daily updates are very reassuring. What a great feeling to be able to go away and know that Jake is being cared for like we were leaving him with a family member. Can't thank you all enough.
I am so happy with our experience with Rob, Becky and Josh. Casey was a very happy dog when we picked him up. I have already booked another stay with them and they will become Casey's second family.
Rob, Becky and Josh took wonderful care of our two dogs. Our dogs were relaxed and happy when we picked them up - always a good sign. I would highly recommend Rob and Becky.
Our babies had a wonderful time, when we picked them up they were happy, and you could see that they really enjoyed their stay, Shelby even kissed Becky goodbye. Would most def use again . Pics and texts were sent daily.,
Buddy had a great time with Rob and his family. He is looking forward for his next visit
Rob and Becky are very kind people and they care about the dogs who you leave in there care. I had a great experience with them and I would highly recommend them. I will use them again for my dog when needed without hesitation. They also have a very sweet dog who is friendly.
My wife and I were very satisfied with the care we received for our dog Lady. Rob and his family are friendly, professional, and seem to really like caring for dogs. Our flight was delayed, and Rob was very flexible and patient in meeting our scheduling needs. This is a quality, convenient option for dog care for folks in both PA and NJ in the Delaware Valley.
Schuyler had a fabulous time-she was on her own vacation, maybe better than mine because she had a driver to drop her off, doggie companions, a garden to explore and two wonderful people who clearly cared for her.
Rob and Becky sent pictures almost every night of Schuyler's antics which sent me into gales of laugher and importantly, made me feel very reassured about her stay
I am so happy that I met Rob, Becky and their family including their dog, Mishala. I'll definitely be back!! Thanks, guys!!!
Rob and Becky took wonderful care of my three dogs. They walked them, played with them, and even let two of them sleep in bed with them. Rob sent text messages with pictures of the pooches while I was away, which was very reassuring. I recommend him very highly. You can be certain that your dog will be lovingly and responsibly cared for.
Rob and his family are exceptional pet sitters--we could not have asked for a better home of loving dog owners to care for our two fur babies while we were away. They gave regular updates on how things were going and even sent daily pics of our dogs to us. We appreciate the special care they gave to Taco and Zoe, and especially the quick and positive communication they gave us throughout the DogVacay. We give them the highest recommendation to anyone and plan on asking them to pet sit for us in future!
