About Angela and Mike

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

Please read all the information listed below, it will hopefully provide information that is needed to help you decide if our home is the best choice for your fur child.

Mike and I are doggy parents to a 10 year old, 80 lbs. Labrador/Border Collie, Bonnie. Macy, our sweet dog went to Heaven on 11.29.16. We have a medium sized fenced in back yard.

Mike and I both work Monday through Friday, we will be gone from the house 7:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. M-Thurs. and 7:30 a.m.-noon on Fridays. Mike comes home during lunch to let the dogs out for a potty break. We allow the dogs to roam the house unless you tell us to crate them or put them in a separate room from our dogs

Mike and I do what we can to assist the dogs in experiencing the least amount of stress as possible. For example, if your dog(s) sleeps in the bed, they will sleep in our bed or if the dog(s) is/are scared of thunderstorms, we will arrange our schedules as much as we can to stay home with them during storms. Mike and I will not yell at or spank animals, we find no benefits in doing so, to us, doing such actions do more harm than good.

Both Mike and I are Pet CPR/First Aid Certified. I also have a certificate in Animal Psychology.

Mike and I will host two dogs in addition to Bonnie. We do this in order to reduce the dogs' stress levels and to limit the likelihood of doggy disagreements of occurring.

We do require doing a meet and greet before accepting reservations as this will be an opportunity to determine if the dogs get along and to allow your dog(s) to get comfortable with us.

Per Dogvacay guidelines, the fee, $26, is for a 24 hour period, Mike and I will allow an additional 6 hours for you to pick up your sweet dog. For example, if you book for one day and you drop your fur child off at Friday at 9 a.m., we ask that you pick him/her up Saturday by 3 p.m.

Thank you!

Buddy has stayed with Mike and Angela many times. As excited as we are to go on our trips, Buddy is just as excited to visit Mike and Angela! He comes home happy and tired, and we get pictures and updates nearly every day. We are grateful to have them!

This was my first Dogvacay. I'm a foreigner here. I was used to let my dog stay at animal hospital for a couple of days in my country. But here I couldn't find any hoteling services so I decided to use dogvacay. Frankly speaking I was worried because this trip was the longest and I was not sure who my dog sitters are.

However I was silly. Angela did a great job with my little dog. I was informed with her status and sent great photos almost everyday. My dog fell in love with Angela and had a wonderful vacation too. I have another trip in August and of course my choice is Angela. Thank you so much. This will be a beautiful memory of my days in US.

Our 2 yellow labs thoroughly enjoyed their stay with Angela and Mike, and their 2 dogs Bonnie and Macy. Initial trepidation re our first dog vacay was put completely to rest by all the great reviews, our pre meet at their home where the dogs all got to sniff each other out w no issues at all, and especially by Angela's thoughtful and frequently sent texts and pics of our dogs at play and rest while we were away. Angela was most welcoming with all our dog beds, and water, food bowls, and even dog med instructions and she and Mike carried it off with no difficulty. And it was Christmas weekend for them! Thank you both so very much!!

I was impressed how Mike and Angela took care to make Stella feel comfortable her first days of a week stay. Enjoyed the updates and pics. Will definitely return.
Angela and Mike are simply wonderful. We met with them a few weeks before leaving our dog to make sure it was a right fit and right away I knew teddy would be comfortable. To say Teddy was spoiled is an understatement, he played hard with his new best friends, snuggled, and played more. They put me at ease by sending lots of pictures and texts giving me updates. We will use Angela and Mike for as long as they are willing to watch Teddy! I finally found someone who cares for their's and other's dogs like I do!

Angela and Mike are great! Our dog has had two visits and she is usually a bit timid and the second time she stayed she had her tail wagging and excited to be there! I would definitely recommend them.
Angela and Mike were awesome. They were flexible with our pick up and drop off times, and kept us informed throughout the weekend. You know they love your dog when you pick him up and they say "We already discussed that if you never came back, we would keep Radar. He's such an awesome dog."

Mike and Angela made Stella feel right at home and Stella was very happy to have the opportunity to play with their dog, Bonnie. I would definitely take Stellla back.
They were so sweet and sent many picture updates of our pup! We will definitely be going back to them for future stays.
I was a little nervous about leaving my fur babies alone over night (especially after a bad kennel experience), but I could not be happier with the experience that I had with Angela and Mike. They did absolutely everything to ensure that my fur babies were happy and comfortable and that I could enjoy my weekend away with no worries at all.

I did a meet and greet first, and could tell as soon as I met them that they absolutely loved dogs. I felt 100% confident leaving my fur babies with them. They sent regular updates and pictures of my boys playing and lounging - I could really tell that they were enjoying themselves and felt very comfortable in their home.

Angela and Mike were also very accommodating with scheduling drop-off and pick-up times, even when we had to postpone pick up by a few hours. I am so excited to finally have a safe and fun haven for my fur babies. I will definitely be using Angela and Mike in the future - our boys love them!

We are so grateful that our 1st experience with DogVacay was with Angela. It was perfect. Forest loved it. We could tell they enjoyed having him. Thank you! We look forward to bringing him back again.
Angela did a great job with Lucy and I was very satisfied with this experience. It's always hard to leave Lucy with someone new, but it worked out fine. Angela sent pictures every day so I could see that Lucy was doing fine.
Angela and Mike were so easy to work with and we appreciated them tremendously. It's a huge relief to know your pet is in someone's home and being taken care of. We loved the daily photos!
Angela and Mike have been absolutely wonderful! This is our second time having them dog sit our year and a half old Great Dane. Owning a Great Dane has several unique responsibilities attached. Angela and Mike are willing to accept these responsibilities and help accommodate our unusual requests. They even take pictures and text throughout his stay to let me know how and what he is doing. I would highly recommend them as dog sitters and would ask them to dog sit for me again in the future!

Angela is a very easy going and excellent care taker of dogs. We have what can be considered a "difficult" dog at 1 year of age. It is difficult to find someone to care for him as he is a Great Dane however she welcomed him with open arms. She and Mike also had very well behaved dogs that were very considerate considering Chandler's large and intimidating size. She updated us with photos and I know that Chandler was very well taken care of at this home. He probably had as good as of a vacation as we had.

My brother and I left our dogs with Angela over the July 4th weekend. Even after a few minutes of a meet and greet before hand, I knew this would work out. She loves dogs as much as I do, it was comforting to know that. She texted with us throughout the weekend and sent picture updates on how my dog was doing. I will definitely keep her in mind the next time I need a dog sitter. A+

Angela and Mike are the best out there. We did a quick meet and greet for not only the dogs, but for us as well. It is such a great feeling knowing that they are being taken care of the whole time and not in a kennel. It was during the 4th of July weekend. Their own dog as well as ours were not enjoying the loud noises of the fireworks and they decided to stay at home to comfort them instead of the plans they had. We were constantly updated with reports and pictures of how they were doing with everything from walks and how they were getting along. At some point I thought they wouldn't want to leave and come home! I will definitely use them again whenever we are out of town. Thanks to both Angela and Mike!!

My dog, Sullivan, had a great stay with Angela, her husband, and their two dogs. I received pictures of him playing in the back yard, and he came home a very happy puppy. Thank you!
Angela was wonderful! We have a two-year old pup who is sweet as can be, but also pretty hyper. I was nervous about just leaving Maggie with someone she didn't know, but Angela graciously offered to let Maggie hang out with her and her two dogs (who are both older, but were so good to Maggie!) for a few hours one evening for a play date.

The play date must have been fun, because when we went back to drop Maggie off for her overnight stay, Maggie was so excited to see Angela--she could barely wait to get out of the car.

We had someone else pick Maggie up (which potentially could have been complicated), and it went smoothly. Angela was easy to communicate with and was really great about sending updates. Thank you so much Angela--I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation knowing Maggie was in good hands. We will definitely be using Angela again.

Angela is one of the sweetest persons I have ever met. It was an A+ experience for us. Would not hesitate to arrange another stay when needed. Kay Singleton
Angela was the perfect host. My wife and really had a great experience and will certainly use her again. Our dog Alpha, seemed to enjoy himself. (judging by photos she sent me during his stay and his happy behavior afterwards). Thank you Angela for your kindness to our pet.

Angela is awesome! I think our dog misses her now. I better start planning another vacation....for both of us!
Angela and Mike did a great job watching my dog over the weekend. The normal things you hope for -- good communication, flexible pickup/dropoff, a safe environment, and friendliness -- were there in abundance.

But here is why you should use them.

Things are always a bit unpredictable when bringing a dog into a new environment and meeting new faces. But on the second day when our dogs' personalities clashed, Angela and Mike responded in the best way possible. They first took care of the situation and resolved the problem. They kept me informed, but didn't make too big of a deal about it. Most of all they adapted, adjusting their routines over the weekend so that the two dogs could live in relative harmony.

Over the weekend I felt confident that my dog was safe and in good hands. And if you can trust people when things are less then perfect, you can definitely trust them when things go more smoothly, which I am sure is the norm with Angela and Mike. They are a sweet couple with a sweet dog, and you can tell it is a loving home. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
