Ann was fantastic. Really glad she had Finley over to meet her dog, Lucy, and to get acquainted to the house and yard. Finley seemed sad to leave when I picked her up. I'd recommend Ann and Lucy to anyone!
Ann S was the best. She is super accommodating has a fantastic back yard - great for dogs to run around a play. Every time I go, I know my dog is in great hands and always comes home exhausted. MUCH better than sending a dog to a kennel. Thanks Ann for everything!
Cal loves going to Ann's house and is always happy to play with Lucy.
Awesome! Bubba had the best vacation ever and he even made new friends. He can't wait to go back. So fun!
He had a great time with other dogs during Thanksgiving.
My dog had a great time there with other dogs.
My 12 year old dog somehow escaped from Ann's backyard on Christmas Day and was missing for 12 hours before being found due to the online networking that Dog Vacay implemented. Oddly, my dog was found about 2 miles away from Ann's house scratching on the door of a pet boarding facility. I had used Ann twice before and was very happy but would not recommend this host after this frightening experience.
Ann is the best I have had when it comes to dog boarding. I was scrambling to find a place for Maebree over Christmas weekend, and Ann came to the rescue. More importantly, I knew Maebree would be in good hands as soon as I met her. On top of all this, my flight back to Dallas got cancelled, and Ann was super accommodating/understanding. The best part - she didn't even charge me for the extra night!

Ann also sent an update with a picture of Maebree on Christmas Day. If you're looking for someone to take care of your pup, look no further.
The start of this reservation was a delight with a meet and greet to find out if he would be a fit to stay there and it went great. I am guessing his stay there was okay because he was pooped when he got home but when I went to pick him up I rang and rang the door bell to find no one wanted to answer the door. I called Ann to find out what was going on but she didn't answer the call. Soon as I hung up her son came out with my dog with a different harness on because he had chewed through his which means it was left on him unattended in a kennel. I have never heard of any one leaving that on while kenneling a dog but if someone was home why was he kenneled?!? Not sure but this made me a bit concern to say the least!
Ann and her family are tremendous and take such good care of Rancher!
Anne is wonderful and our dog Bongo just loves her! She is so great with him. It is the only place other than home that he has ever stayed. She sends updates and pictures that we love to see. I would recommend her to anyone!
It seems Oreo had a great good time and made some friends there! Even it's rainy day they had tons of play!
At first, I was a little nervous with leaving my puppy at someone's home but I am not anymore. Ann and her family were amazing and it seems like my baby had a great time because as soon as we go in the car he went to sleep…which rarely happens. Ann kept me updated with photos/text messages and also agreed to keep him one more night. This was a great experience and Ann will be my go too sitter from this day forward.

I will be booking again soon!!! Thanks Ann and Family.
Ann was easy to work with and great with taking Lavender into her home. Would board with her again.
Ann's place is nice. My pup seems to enjoy it a lot over there. Much better than leaving him at some vet kennel. Would recommend.
Cooper arrived happy and tired :) thanks Ann and family for the support
Thanks for the love to Tutti and Cooper
Ann is always a pleasure and my dog always has a great time!
Ann is great. She is very personable and is so comfortable with my dog. There is always someone home so I felt safe knowing my dog was well taken care of. My pup is now snoring away at home after her dog vacation :)
Rancher loves the big yard and Ann always takes good care of him! Thanks!!
Great environment for the dogs. Rancher had a great time and will be back!
We always know that our baby's will be well take care.. Thanks Ann and family
Ann and family, thanks for play with my lovely ones Regards, sparks family
Ann and her family were very caring for my 2 senior goldens (ages 12.5 and 11). They sent photos and responded to each of my texts quickly. They even accommodated my oldest dog's need for help getting up from the floor. I would definitely book with them again.
Definitely a better experience than the boarding facilities we've used in the past. I would highly recommend using a pet sitter through Dog Vacay. It's the closest thing to a home away from home. Ann kept me posted with updates and made me feel better about boarding my fur babies again.
Ann took Exceptional care of Goldie. Ann is very knowledgeable about pet care inasmuch as she has been a pet owner herself. Her home is very welcoming with a huge yard for dogs to play in.
I'm sure I will be re-scheduling again with Ann in the future.
Thanks Ann and Family; my hairy babies came back happy and tired
Thank you so much for taking such great care of Roscoe & Tobie! We are very greatful!
I was worried because I never had my baby watched by others before, but seven had a great time! I will use Ann and the boys again. Thank you!
Ann was great! She has a great back yard and was able to handle my energy filled heeler mix!
My lovely ones they know the way to Ann's home... And they just start to been so emotional and as soon they saw Ann or the family they jump of happiness .. Thanks for All Sparks Family
Max loves staying at Ann's house! We really appreciate her services!
Great environment. My pet seems to have a lot of fun at Ann's home.
Ann and her kids are great. Their house is located in a beautiful part of North Dallas with a perfectly massive backyard for dogs to play. She has always been accommodating even on short notice and updates us with pictures via text of the dogs having a good time. I recommend her to all.
This was the first time I used a non-commercial dog boarding. Ann was very flexible with our timings. We found the place to be a clean, doggie friendly environment. Our dogs were very much themselves after we picked them up. They were exhausted and tired for a day, but that's expected in any facility where these guys get to play with each other all day long. Slightly more pricey than some other options here on dogvacay, but I feel still worth it.
Cooper arrived super happy; As always Thanks Ann and family
Ann was great! My dog had a good "vaca"! Because it was his first time, she sent me a text and pictures which made me feel good that he was getting along and having fun.
It was great thanks Ann.
Another AMAZING stay with Ann! Ann is seriously our life-saver. Lucy hops right out of the car when we pull in the drive way and makes herself right at home! If you want to have full confidence that your dog is safe and happy, take them to Ann!
They are always well take care and with love. Thanks Ann and Family
I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful care you took of Bailey while we were away. Knowing that our dog was so well cared for each and every day allowed us to really relax and not worry about her while we were on vacation. Thanks a million!
They always arrived happy and tired at home. Thanks Ann and family
Daisy and Mary Belle had a great stay at Ann's house while we were out of town!
I would not recommend this provider. She is very slow to return calls, if at all. She apparently works full time and leaves her teenage son to do the dog boarding work. On the bright side, my dogs were in good spirits when I picked them up, although one was filthy from mud in the back yard due to several days of rain and should not have been let out into the mud.
Our dog has stayed with Ann a few times and we have always been pleased!
Ann always does a great job with Bullet. Her and her family are great.
My lovely Cooper as always was happy and well take care. Thanks Ann and Family
Ann and her family are amazing! Like many others my dog is my baby and i felt so comfortable the moment I walked in for our meet and greet:). The huge back yard is a plus and I loved getting updates and pictures while we were away. Right when we brought Conrad home he flopped on the floor and went to sleep, so we know he had a great time playing/staying at Ann's! I couldn't take him anywhere else now, thanks again ann!
This was a very positive experience for both us and our dog. In the meet and greet, Ann was wonderful about explaining everything and making sure it was a good fit. It was nice getting a photo during our vacation to see that our dog was happy also!
We have been been with Ann since 1 year ago,
My dogs had a very good care and I got them back happy and in great shape. The host were flexible and supportive regarding the logistics.
Ann is so wonderful!! Our 6 month old golden just loves going over there. I never have to worry about safety, boredom, or not enough attention for Lucy. Ann is always sending pictures and keeping me updated. I'm so happy we found a second home for Lucy!!!
Ann and her kids were very polite and ready to accommodate my spoiled princess, Happy. They're yard is amazing, and if you have a dog that needs to run free this is a great place for them. They seem to have a good system for handling dogs of various sizes and temperaments. We will be back!
This was my second booking with Ann and just like the first time, it went great. My dogs absolutely love staying here. My 2 year old loves the big backyard and my senior dog, who's 12, gets tons of love and attention.

In fact they love Ann and her wonderful family so much I almost feel bad taking them home!!
My 2 dogs just have fun with Ann and here family
Great yard for the dogs to run. Ann was very responsive and we are very pleased with the overall experience. Would highly recommend.
As always, Ann was easy to work with and Rufus came home tired and happy!
Ann is an Exceptional sitter! Ann provides Great care for Goldie. Goldie and Ann's dog, Samson get along Very Well and I would recommend Ann to sit your dog.
Thank you for another great stay, Ann!
Such a relief to know my "kiddos" are in good hands while I'm gone. They had such a good time playing with the other dogs and running around Ann's huge backyard, when I brought them home, they literally slept for two days! Probably dreaming about their next visit to Ann's house. : )
Ann is awesome!! She took care of my 3-legged dog, Gulli, and he loved it!
Rufus had another great stay with Ann! She is always easy to work with and flexible in scheduling.
Ann is an absolute Awesome sitter! She cared for Goldie as if she were her own pet. I am on line now to book another stay with Ann.
Ann and her family are great with the pups that stay there! Snickers had a great time! Definitely will be coming back to Ann for the next trip!!
Ann was awesome and very easy going. We originally had just one of our dogs staying with her but at the last minute had to add our other one. She'll try to work with you if she can. We have a 3-legged dog and she was very understanding that he needs to take a break every once in a while from the other dogs. Both of our dogs had a great stay and we will definitely be using Ann again in the future. :)
Ann and here child's: have the touch to make the stay happy, relax and fun for my dogs. Thanks Ann and childs
With Ann and here family, Copper and Tutti just have fun, love and very good take care. Thanks Ann & childs.
Another great experience with Ann and her family of hosts. Bullet enjoys himself every time he is there.
Thank you for another great stay, Ann!
As usual, the boarding was a stress free experience. Ann is a great host with just the right amount of attention to her guests.
The advantage with Ann and here family is the flexibility of schedule :)
DJ Boogie had a super time at Ann's house (again). She came home tired and happy. What more could I ask for! Def. will use Ann again.
My lovely dogs are always happy when we arrive to Ann`s house and return well take care and tired ;) (for all the play and fun they had ). Thanks Ann and family
Ann was amazing. Took our Hounds on short notice and has a beautiful home with an incredible backyard that our dogs absolutely loved. I was nervous about using DogVacay with our dog Huck because he is a very nervous guy, but he had an incredible stay at Ann's house. Ann texted us occasional pictures and updates while we were gone and she is just wonderful.
Our two small dogs - Rocky and Mo stayed with Ann and her family for 12 days and they did great! Ann is super easy to work with to schedule drop off and pickup and we appreciated hearing from her on how they were doing while we were out of the country. They loved playing in her backyard and with some other visiting dogs. We will definitely be booking with Ann again!
Awesome first experience with Ann.
My two lovely family members (golden and daschund) stayed for 10 nights with Ann and her family. They just love them and we know that it is like home. Ann reponds to your requests right away and is always flexible and kind ( our plane was delayed more than 4 hours) and patient.

Thanks Ann and Family; Rob and Heidi Sparks
Ann is such a great host! We have taken Jay to stay with her 3 times and we are always pleased! She has always been flexible with us and Jay is always a happy pup after he has had a weekend at her home! We will definitely continue to use her services!
We have a hyper border collie and he had so much fun at their house with their big back yard, I don't think he missed us at all. The whole family has an intuition about dogs and dog packs, they even taught me something :) We hope to have our dog, Jude, go there whenever we leave town!
Macie really enjoyed it at Ann's house. She sent me updates via text/pictures while I was away which put my mind at ease since she is an older dog. Will definitely use Ann again in the future.
Ann did great with Bullet. Thanks for taking care of him.
My 2 dogs enjoyed the weekend with Ann and her family.
For using DogVacay for the first time, Ann made it very easy. She is easy to work with and very accommodating. Cuddles loved the large yard and we loved the picture updates! Thank you Ann!
Another great stay for our dog Max!
My 2 dogs (Golden and Dachshund) were super happy with Ann and her family, Tutti (Dachshund) run away with one of her child to be pet as soon is inside her home, Cooper loves the big space that she have at home and the interaction with the other dogs.
She allow you to bring the dogs beds, blanket and food plate.

thanks Ann :) Sparks Family
As always, Ann was very accommodating! Our travel plans changed, getting us to Dallas later than planned and Ann was very understanding.
Our dogs loved their stay! We went on vacation for 5 days and we're worry free knowing our dogs were in good care. From the first meet to the time we were away. Ann was great and sent us photos of the pups. They really enjoyed the big back yard with all the room to play! We will definitely be using Ann again!
Ann; just love to spoild our dogs (golden retriever and mix dachshund) and play with them. Thanks for been with them. Sparks Family
Ann and her children take care and play a lot with Copper and Tutti. Our canines came home happy and tired :)
Another great stay with Ann!
My puppies love Ann and her family. It's nice to have piece of mind when leaving our babies. I feel very comfortable leaving them with Ann. Big Back yard is a bonus!
Ann, was very responsable in order to take care of my 2 dogs Copper (Golden Retriever) and Tutti (Dashund); She answer to the email right away if you need information about them.
My lovely dogs were happy to see us when we pick up them but the big difference, they seem to be really relax and not so excited and that give us peace.

Thanks Ann ;)
This was the second time we have left Riley with Ann and she was great! I loved the picture updates while we were away, letting us see how much fun Riley was having. We will definitely be using her again!
Ann and her kids are amazing...we felt so comfortable leaving Maggie with them. There's a big, sunny backyard for lots of play, and Ann texted us pics every day. So nice to be able to enjoy our time away knowing Maggie was in such good hands!
Great first experience with both DogVacay and Ann. Bucky is a little high maintenance, but Ann was very understanding and gave me updates throughout his entire stay.
Love Ann and her family. Took Sampson over for a meet and great to begin with and he felt right at home. Her home is very inviting and dog friendly. Great Backyard space for him to play. He took right to her and her family. I felt very secure and with leaving him there. She provided pics of him throughout his stay which was great! I am very protective and had never left Sampson anywhere before but I would definitely recommend her and will be using her again. Thanks Ann!
Ann was a fantastic host for my puppy Bailey who has anxiety issues. She was easy to contact and very flexible on pickup and drop off times. I also loved receiving picture updates on how my Bailey was doing during her stay. She looked like she was right at home!

Thank you Ann for taking such great care of my dog!
Very simple process. Left my dog there and picked him up just as planned. Ann was accommodating to my relatively late pickup.
Ann is great. Just great! Our dogs couldn't wait to get out of the car once we pulled up. We enjoyed the text updates and pictures. It kept us at ease! She is flexible and easy to coordinate with, which made it much easier leaving them for the weekend.
Ann was great. She made us feel very comfortable talking care of Bullet. She went out of her way to make Bullet feel welcomed. Definitely recommend her to others.
Ann is a great host. I love receiving picture updates on how my Kona is doing. He always looks happy and you can tell he is a part of the family. Its very comforting to know that I don't have to worry about Kona when I leave him with Ann! I highly recommend her!
Ann is great to work with! She is flexible about pick-up and drop-off times, always sends updates while we're away, and Charlie has a great time running around the big back yard and playing with the other dogs. We definitely recommend Ann!
Ann is easy to work with and, as an experienced dog owner, is confident with all aspects of dealing with multiple animals at her home. She is also flexible about pick-up/drop-off and has two grown children at home who also pitch in.
Rufus had another great stay with Ann! We received picture updates everyday, putting us at ease while we were away. Thank you again, Ann!
Ann has been amazing! She is extremely flexible and very helpful. Titan loves going there and playing out in the yard. I wouldn't take him anywhere else!
We were very happy with our dogs stay with Ann.Two of our 3 dogs have medical issues and were taken care of in an excellent manner. We will definitely using Ann again for our dogs' boarding.
We always hate to leave Rufus but Ann put us at ease. She sent photos and kept us updated while we were out of town, reassuring us that Rufus was well taken care of. We definitely recommend Ann!
Ann is a fantastic host! Very responsive and flexible. We had a quick meet & greet Thursday with her & her dog Samson, me & my dog Cobra, plus another dog she was boarding. Everyone got along great and before we made our reservation, she reminded me about a first-timer's discount! We dropped Cobra off Friday evening and Ann texted us a picture of Cobra playing by 10am Saturday. When we picked her up Sunday, she was well-exercised and went straight to sleep when we got home, making it easy to unpack. We'll definitely use Ann and Dog Vacay again, and recommend to our friends. I'm making another reservation now!
Max seemed to have a nice time! Thanks!
From the day of our "Meet & Greet" I knew that Ann would be a Great Host for Goldie...and I was Right!
Ann sent me pictures during Goldie's stay and I could tell that Goldie felt right at home.
I will Most Definitely be using Dog Vacay and Ann on my next trip out of town.
Thank You, Ann!
Ann was very helpful and took care of Nooki very well. She kept us posted on how Nooki was doing. She has a good size yard and she is friendly with dogs. She offered to get the crate for me from car when I had a backache. I would definitely recommend her.
I've left Kiska and Roxie with Ann twice, and both times I had a good experience. My dogs seem to like it there. She has two older kids who seem to be dog lovers too. Big yard. I would, and have recommended Dog Vacay
Ann was great! She was extremely accommodating to my extra hours and made me feel very comfortable about leaving my puppy with her all day. Thank you so much for an easy great stay! We will be using Ann again soon!
Ann was the sweetest the entire weekend! She sent me updates and pictures of Jay while he was staying with her and it made me feel like he was in great hands! I will definitely be calling her again next time I am in need of a sitter! I could tell Jay had a great time too. Thanks, Ann!
Ann is once again great! Our dogs got so excited when we pulled up to her street for their second 'dogvaycay' at her home! We appreciate her so much for allowing Roscoe & Tobie to be a part of her family for the weekend! We definitely enjoy the text message updates & pictures of them playing & chasing squirrels. Thanks again, Aubrey
My dogs loved their stay & Ann was super gracious and very knowledgeable about dogs. I will definitely use her services again and would recommend her services.
I believe Tucker had an excellent time with Ann. The pictures we received were great. Thanks!
Ann S. saves the day! We needed a last minute booking and Ann was flexible! She is easy to talk to and I know she has a love for animals. It isn't easy leaving for me to leave the dogs behind, but Ann made me feel very comfortable and I knew I could trust her. I had no doubt that our dogs were in good hands. She made them a part of her family for the long weekend. She texted me pictures of them throughout their stay which reassured me they were happy and doing well! I will be booking with Ann again! Thanks again!
