Our 6yo beagle, Daisy, had a successful weekend stay with Jan and her family. They were willing to uphold our rules about staying off the furniture, which was nice. We will be using them again!
Our Douglas and Timbre were very comfortable, It was as if they never left home.
Baxter came back from Jan and Mike's happy and tired! We felt very comfortable leaving him for a week with them. We will definitely being using them the next time we go away.
Jan and Mike took excellent care of Iris! She came home (besides the car ride) extremely relaxed. This is a big deal because Iris is a rescue and, although she loves everyone, tends to be nervous and hyper. I have noticed her change month by month since I've had her, getting more comfortable, but it worries me to go away without her. I can tell the week she spent with Jan, Mike, and their family was great for her. I really appreciate it!
Cody had a wonderful stay, was beautifully and attentively taken care of, and, when leaving, went up to Jan as if to say thank you! He looked relaxed and happy.
We were very happy with our DogVacay host family. Jan and Mike took good care of our two dogs Sam and Ollie. We were a little worried about Sam and his inability to get around very well. Both dogs came home relaxed and non-stressed. We would certainly recommend them to anyone in need of a sitter.
My fur babies thoroughly enjoyed their stay. They seemed relaxed and happy when I picked them up. I received pictures and updates everyday. Would highly recommend.
This is the first time my dogs, ages 10 and 13, have been taken care of by someone outside the family. I was afraid they would have separation anxiety, but both dogs did very well without me! Jan and Mike took excellent care of them, and made them part of the family. I would be happy to bring them there again.
Maggie had a great time! We will absolutely use them again!
This was a wonderful place for our dog, a two year old German shepherd. She simply became a member of Jan's family for a week. When I picked her up, she wasn't anxious or down at all - glad to see me, but relaxed and happy. We would send Peppa back in a heartbeat. Thanks!!
It was Jaxsons first visit. He was tired out, so he must have had a great time playing with Schultz! Loved getting an update and picture all 3 days. Thanks Jan and Mike.
Bruno had a most excellent time at Jan and Mike's house. They took wonderful care of him. Even getting him medicine from our vet for digestive issues right after we left. We were gone overseas for two whole weeks and never felt worried about our dog. They kept us informed with emails and amused with photos. When we came to pick up Bruno he looked torn between wanting to come home and staying there.
Savannah always makes herself right at home with Mike and Jan! I don't worry about a thing when she's there!
Our Bruno was well taken care of at Mike and Jen's. We loved getting updates and pictures of our dog. We are making plans to have them watch Bruno again in the upcoming summer.
I was totally comfortable leaving Shelby with Mike and Jan, and they kept me updated with pictures. Looked like she had a good time. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Mike and Jan took great care of my Andy. They were very friendly and very accepting and I felt very comfortable leaving him in their care. This was the first time I left him with someone else to care for him. I felt much more comfortable than I would have at a pet kennel. They sent me pictures each day with funny captions that let me know how much fun Andy was having, especially with their dog, Schultz.
We love Mike and his family! Pepper came home totally relaxed and seemed like she had a great time. Wonderful house with a nice large backyard! We will def use them again!
Very nice folks who were kind enough to take in my (active) Australian shepherd at the last minute. Riley seemed happy and well-cared-for. Would have liked some pix.
Mike and his family did a great job taking care of our dog. She loved playing with Schultz in their great back yard. Highly recommended!
Our dog Savannah fit right in with Mike and his family! She got along great with their dog Schultz, he made her feel right at home. I felt very comfortable leaving her there for 8 days! They took great care of her and she loved sniffing and roaming around the back yard! I definitely will be booking with them again on our next vacation! Also loved the pics they sent of Savannah making herself at home there!
He had a great time. We would recommend.
Murphie stayed with Mike while we were out of town and apparently he made himself right at home, I was told that he jumped in the bed with Mike and slept on the couch when he got tired of playing with Schultzie. This is a great place to leave your dog, we will definitely be back.
Mike and family continue to display great patience and care with Samantha. We're hoping her time with Schultz will bring her out of her shell a little more and looks like Schultz is making some progress with her as she followed him around a little more this visit.

It's just great to know we can leave her with a family that understands and cares for her; and Schultz seems happy to let her have her space as well. Helps us to relax when we're away knowing she is in good hands.
Mike and his family were fantastic with our Jack Russell Sasha! I looked forward to each of their updates and pictures they emailed us while we were away. Sasha came home very happy and tired and we will definitely use them again in the future. I highly recommend them to anyone!
Mike was very sensitive to our dog's very shy nature and helped to ease her into their surroundings. Schultz is great - he's quite active but not aggressive or pushy with Samantha which allowed her to take her time to figure him out and get to know him and his family at her own comfort level.

We were very comfortable leaving Samantha with Mike and family and look forward to having her stay with them when we go on vacation in a couple of weeks.
Bella had an amazing time at Chateau Shultz and was very well taken care of. I can tell she was treated like family and Chateau Shultz will be her default dogvacay spot.
Mike and his family were great hosts for our dog, Gary. He had so much fun being able to play with Schultz every day. It was comforting to know he was in good hands while we were away. Thanks again!
Bear had a great Vacay! He came home relaxed and tired for days. I felt much better knowing that he was with a family and getting playtime with a dog friend.
Once again, Buster had a great vacation! This is Buster's "home away from home" ! Thanks Mike and Family!
Riley just spent a FANTASTIC week at Chateau Schultz. Mike went all out to make Riley feel like part of the family. She had nonstop fun with her new buddy Schultz and LOTS of attention from the whole family!
I can tell she misses Chateau Schultz. We will go back to visit soon. I would definitely leave Riley with Mike again. Great experience and I would highly recommend this host.
Buster spent an awesome weekend with his doggie host Schulze! He came home happy and tired! Buster was made to feel so welcome, he felt comfortable enough to jump up and sit on Mike's lap and even jump into bed (Buster is 90 lbs)! Thank you Mike, Schulze and family!
