Violet had a wonderful stay, as always. Julie always sends wonderful updates and was so caring when Violet had a little tummy trouble - checking in and offering to go out of her way to help make sure she was ok.
Julie and Kevin are so wonderful with Violet and she loves being with them and with Turkey! She always has an amazing stay!
Violet always has the best time with Julie, Kevin and Turkey - and they take amazing care of her!
As always, Violet had a great visit and came home happy, healthy and pooped out from so much fun!
Violet always has a wonderful time with Julie, Kevin and Turkey!
I can't say enough positive things about our experience with Julie, Kevin and Turkey. From a very prompt response to my first email, to meet-and-greet follow-up, thorough attention to Paris' personality and needs, flexibility with our drop-off and pick-up times and then many delightful updates during our long weekend away we could not have asked for a better experience or felt like our special friend was in better hands. Having never left Paris with anyone in her short time in NYC it made for a relaxing peace-of-mind time away. Thank you, we are already planning our next trip!
AMAZING!! Kevin and Julie were quick to respond, accommodating and sent regular updates!
Needed my dog to be walked once during the day. Julie came to meet me and my dog prior and that was very beneficial. My dog was very well taken care of and I received daily updates with photos. Highly recommended.
My dog is very shy and fearful but she did great with Kevin and Julie. They know and love dogs and took great care of her. Even though they were on vacation when I was setting up my appointment they always got back to me immediately - great communication and were very prompt for our meet up, etc. They give you great peace of mind when you are away from your dog.
Julie, Kevin, and Turkey kept Rosie way more than occupied. They were kind enough to help us out on short notice, picked Rosie up, dropped her off, took her out for runs and to the dog park for hours on end, and sent us videos and texts the entire time so we knew that she was okay.

We were lucky to find them. Thanks all!
Julie and Kevin were wonderful. Bella seemed to really enjoy her time in the Poconos with them from all of the photos and videos they sent. While we were away, we probably got more updates from them about our dog than we did from our nanny about our child! They were really sweet and it was great that Bella had Turkey to romp around with as well. Thank you Julie and Kevin! Looking forward to the next time! xx
Another great visit!
Violet loves her visits with Julie, Kevin and Turkey - and they take such good care of her when I'm away.
As always, Julie, Kevin and Turkey were wonderful hosts for Violet!
Kevin and Julie were just terrific - they were incredibly patient and supportive of Violet who was a bit nervous at the beginning of her stay. They sent me lots of great updates and pictures which were reassuring and allowed me not to miss my pup as much as I would have otherwise! And Turkey was very generous in sharing toys! I would definitely recommend them - they clearly know dogs!
Turkey, Kevin and Julie are awesome and Yuki loves the trip to stay with them

Thank you for another wonderful stay for our little Chewie! Kevin and Julie are amazing hosts!
Julie and Kevin were absolutely amazing with our little Chewie. We got regular updates and she came home a very happy dog! Thank you again and you will definitely be seeing Chewie again soon.
Julie & Kevin were amazing! Communicated through out our pup's stay with emails, photos, videos, and texts. Our pup got a ton of exercise and was cared for with love. Couldn't ask for more!
Kevin and Julie and Turkey were wonderful. Patient and positive, inquisitive and genuine, they provided the ultimate peace of mind. Bo was happy and healthy -- I can honestly say they made the experience of being without my pup incredibly comforting. Thanks y'all.
Julie and Kevin were such great weekend hosts. They are true dog lovers. They have a lovely home. Turkey is a very friendly dog. They instantly took my baby to the park for some fun as soon as he arrived. I received email updates and photos all weekend and my dog looked like he was in heaven. Julie and Kevin are the 1st couple I'll approach the next time we need to find a loving environment to leave my baby.
Kevin and Julie were amazing. Their place is very welcoming, their immediate attention to our dog made us feel very good when we left. While we were only gone for 24 hours, we received 3 emails with pictures/movies that comforted us. Next time we are in NYC, we will be seeing if Kevin and Julie are available.

As usual Kevin & Julie were amazing with Blue and as always I felt not only confident in leaving her with them for a long weekend but happy knowing how much fun and love she'd get while she was with them. Thanks!
When we dropped Penny off for her third visit with Kevin, Julie, and Turkey she pulled us right up to their door, her tail wagging the whole time. As soon as the door opened she couldn't wait to play with Turkey and his toys.

We feel like we're leaving her with family and are assured of that when we get pics and videos of her multiple times a day running around with Turkey and getting love from Kevin and Julie (she has a crush on Kevin).

When we picked her last night, as usual she whined the whole way home because of how much she missed them. We couldn't recommend them enough for small dogs!
I truly can't say enough about how wonderful an experience we had with Kevin & Julie!!!! From the very beginning of the process they were super responsive, generous with their time in coming to meet me and my dog Blue, amazing with sending pictures and updates every day....the list goes on. I had absolutely no worries in being away for a week knowing that Blue was in extremely good hands and having incredible adventures with Turkey. As a first time user to Dogvacay I feel extremely lucky to have found such a wonderful family and thankful that I now know just who to reach out to when Blue needs a loving family to be with her when we're away. Thank you Kevin & Julie & Turkey!
Our Miniature Dachshund, Penny, had a great time with Kevin, Julie, and Turkey. We had a perfect experience from start to finish. They updated us daily with awesome pictures and videos from their weekend in the Poconos. We would definitely recommend them!
Daisy had a great weekend. She didn't miss a beat while we were gone and so happy with Kevin, Julie and Turkey. Not sure she even knew we left town. They were flexible with drop off and pick! Julie sent us photos and really detailed updates.
Turkey is an easy going and adorable guy. I would recommend them!
Kevin and Julie were fantastic--so communicative, caring and flexible. We got lots of movies and photos of our pup having the best weekend ever, and Myles came home happy and tired. Our dog can't wait until we have to go out of town again!
Kevin And Julie were amazing hosts and were so attentive to Bruno. Would recommend to anyone using this site!
Julie, Kevin and Turkey helped us feel at ease for our first long trip away from our pup, Olive. They sent us frequent written updates and photos of all the fun Olive was having. We really felt like they made her part of the family for the short time we were away. They are very experienced dog parents and even helped our pup through a sour stomach by feeding her chicken and rice.

Julie and Kevin were extra accommodating when our flight home came in late.

All in all great Dog Vacay experience! Highly recommend them.
Kevin and his family were absolutely phenomenal hosts. They were very accommodating with drop-off and pick-up (we were even able to extend our vacation!). They sent regular updates via text and email, with fantastic photos and videos. Most importantly, they took wonderful care of our boxer: taking him to the lake, to the dog runs, bathing him, etc; all with much love and attention. This was our first week-long vacation without our pup, and are very grateful for the care that Kevin, Julie and Turkey provided.
