About Ashley

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**If our calender shows us as booked on the days you need, please feel free to inquire, sometimes the calendar is inaccurate and many times we can make an exception**

Young professional couple and dog lovers here for your dog. We have an extremely friendly 3 year cat named Whiskey and a 2 year old french bulldog named Cosmo. We will treat your pets like a member of our own family.

Ashley is an entrepreneur/attorney who works from home and Alex will be working from home almost everyday on his dissertation. We are available for overnight boarding during the week and over the weekend, as well as daycare. We are also available to overnight sit in your home as our schedule permits. We don't usually leave our pets alone for more than 4 hours at a time (we may step out to run errands occasionally).

We live in Baltimore City, Maryland in a two story townhouse with lots of grass and a park nearby. We are located in Jonestown, near Little Italy, Harbor East, Fells Point, and Downtown. We look forward to spoiling your dog with lots of walks and playtime. We are health conscious and only provide the best reverse osmosis (fluoride free) water and grass fed grain free dog treats.

We prefer your dog to have his own crate to bring over. We have had several dogs come over without crates on vacay and it made it very difficult for us to separate dogs if they need a time out or some personal space to rest. Also, crates serve as a familiar den for your dog if they are used to them. We do not crate the dogs at any other time and they are free to roam around our house and make themselves comfortable. If your dog is not used to a crate/does not have one, we are happy to discuss with you the best way to separate him if he should need a time out.

We prefer that your dog is cat friendly or does not mind being around a cat. If you are not sure, we are happy to accommodate your situation and keep them separated as our house is large enough to do so. Our cat Whiskey is friendly with dogs, but she mainly keeps to herself unless she feels playful.

Our 13lb frenchie Cosmo loves playing with dogs of all sizes and having new friends over!


Ashley, Alex, Whiskey and Cosmo

**We are also available to watch your cat or other small animal. Contact us for more information.**

Very friendly, Rio was very happy to spend time with them.
Ashley was a wonderful host. She provided constant updates on Sherlock throughout his stay. She also managed to be patient with a 70 lb dog who thinks he is a lap dog. Sherlock will be seeing you regularly! Thank you.
We left our dogs with them for four nights, and one of them was having an allergic reaction to a new flea medication that got worse while we were gone. Ashley took great care of him and kept us updated the whole time! They also sent us pictures of walks every day. When we got home the dogs were in a great mood, and seemed far less stressed than they usually are when we have to kennel them for multiple nights. Would recommend her and Alex to anyone.

My wife and I were having trouble finding someone to watch our dog last minute and they were available with one day notice. Very friendly and helpful people, and very accessible off of 83!
Ashely and her husband were great with both communication and helping our shy Great Dane puppy settle in!
Katie's fourth (at least) stay with Ashley and Alex when my wife and I were heading up to New York for the weekend. Katie always has a great time there, and when we opened the car door she bolted straight into their house, didn't even say goodbye (or give us the sad I-can't-believe-you-are-abandoning-me-face)!

This was Katie's third stay (I think) with Ashley and Alex (who, full disclosure, is a colleague of mine). Great to have reliable people that we trust with the apple of our eye. This time we had an early flight to catch, they made no complaint about us dropping Katie off before sunrise. Thanks again.

Alex and Ashley were wonderful with Ranger. He is 4 months old and this was his first time away from home. He is a very curious pup and they handled that very well. They kept in touch with me during his stay and sent pictures of Rangers walk! One thing to note, Ranger did get diarrhea when he got home and didn't eat much but that went away in a few days. It was more than likely stress from being away for the first time. I messaged Alex concerned asking if Ranger may have eaten anything and he replied immediately with a thorough breakdown of their entire day which was much appreciated! Again, I think Ranger was just overwhelmed and stressed in the new environment since he is so young. Thank you to Alex and Ashley!

Crazy awesome couple! They treated my dog just like I would, kept me up-to-date on what was going on and even sent a super cute pic. I highly recommend them.
They were very accommodating as we were in an area that we were not familiar so they picked up pup for us. They were on time for pick up and drop off would definitely use them again when we are in town
I have been using Cosmo, Ashley, and Alex for a couple weeks now as an alternative to crating my 6 month old puppy, Sookie, when I work long hours. Both Sookie and I have loved the arrangement - and it has really helped out in Sookie's training. Sookie is very excited to go see Cosno when I work - and waits by the door while I get ready. But my appreciation for Cosmo's Corner grew ten fold this past Friday. I had a conference Thursday and Friday, so Sookie had a sleepover at Cosmo's (the first night away from mama). When I was one my way to pick her up Friday - about 5 minutes from Cosmo's, someone hit my car and caused a pretty bad accident. Ashley and Alex were a relief for me - agreed to keep her until I was able to get her...the last minute extra night was a blessing as I was pretty beat up, and the only reason I got her the next day was because I missed her. I cannot tell you enough how important Cosmo, Ashely, and Alex have become to me and Sookie.

I left my little girl Zoe with Ashley and Alex while I took a cruise. I was very concerned because I knew that I would not be able to communicate on a regular basis. I was also concerned because I am retired and never leave me little girl for more than an hour or two. I explained my concerns to Ashley and she totally put me at ease. She was very compassionate and kind. I knew everything would be okay. While I was away, Alex sent me pictures of Zoe and that really made my day.

I would highly recommend Ashley R. and actually plan to use her for doggie daycare as well as long term care in the future.

Ashley was very accommodating of our short notice booking and took wonderful care of Bayley! He was so happy and we couldn't ask for more!
Ashley was extremely responsive in all of our communications, from meet-n-greet to drop-off to pick-up (and everything in between). During the meet-n-greet, she walked us through her usual routine for walking the dogs. We like the fact that her and Alex are home to actually watch our dog when we leave him there. Ashley kept us up-to-date with pictures and texts throughout our dog's stay. After his visit, our dog was completely spent and went to sleep a couple of hours earlier than normal. Highly recommend and would not hesitate have Ashley host again!

Ashley and Alex were amazing with Rio! They knew exactly how to care for him. I was concerned he would be overwhelmed and frightened but he loves them and can't wait to go back!
Great. Always very flexible with drop off and pick up times
Wilson loves going to Cosmo's for vacay! It's so nice to go away and to not have to worry about our pup, he's in such good hands with Ashley and Alex :)
Great communication, friendly people. Made our nervous pup as comfortable as possible. Flexible and accommodating. I'd recommend Ashley for your Baltimore vacay!
Another great vacay with Ashley and Alex, the best hosts ever! :)
Pax loves his time at Ashley's house!
Vince enjoyed his time at Cosmo's Corner. Ashley & Alex were attentive and responsive. When my flight home was delayed they were gracious and accomodating.
Ashley is great! She made sure our dog felt at home and comfortable. She's an older dog who gets a bit anxious when she's not home or with her family. Despite that, our dog loves going over and staying with Ashley, who make her feel safe and sound! She keeps us up to date with adorable photos and tells us everything we need to know. She also is flexible with the times and needs of our pup--highly recommend her always!!

Good stay. Good communication.
Excellent sitters! They can take anyone's needs and not only meet them, but exceed them. I know I have a particularly needy dog, but they are so accommodating and give each dog exactly what they need. They are the best!!!
Second stay with Ashley and Alex, another great experience, thanks again!
They were very thorough in finding out about my dogs' needs and personalities, and very patient with the dogs' early problems in adjusting. My dogs were with Ashley for three weeks, a very long time, and they returned obviously happy and well taken care of.

My Misty felt right at home when she first walked in the door we had visited other sitters Misty would not walk to them she was not comfortable at all but she was very comfortable with Ashley and Alex . I will definitely be using them again thank you so much for taking care of my baby while I was out of town.

I highly recommend Ashley. My dog experienced severe separation anxiety and she took excellent care of him and kept me updated with his stay. I trust her completely to keep my dog safe and well cared for while I am away.
It was a quick stay, but Lucy had a blast! We would definitely go back! Ashley responded super quickly every time we messaged, and pickup/drop off was simple.
Great Experience!
Ashley is absolutely amazing! Not only was she very polite and punctual for our schedule dog walking, she was patient and took the time to calm my pups down before they went on their walk! She provided photos of my pups and was very detailed in her handling of my sometimes skittish pups! I would highly recommend her for dog walks and dog boarding!

This was a great experience. Ashley provided pictures throughout the day to keep me updated on how our dog was doing. Aside from how well Ashley and Alex doing taking care of our dog, I think one of the best aspects is that though they live in the city, they live just off some main roads so it is easy to find and stopping by to pick up/drop off your pet (even at 5pm on Monday) is really easy..

Ashley was great! Really flexible with the drop-off and pickup times when stuff got switched around and great about making sure Boris would be a good fit. Thanks so much Ashley!
Thank you, for taking such great care of Wilson! Thanks for all the updates and check-ins. Cosmo's is a wonderful home away from home for Wilson :)
Ashley and Alex are amazing dog sitters! We never worry when our little man is in their care! They send pictures and updates regularly. Highly recommend them!
Great vacay, as always!! Ashley and Alex are so flexible and our pup always comes home a happy little man :)
Very accommodating,caring and just overall great with our dogs.
I had to go out of town and my puppy, Moose couldn't join me. This was his first time away for more than a day. Ashley and Alex were very kind and asked a lot of questions. Moose had a great time on his vacation! I'm so relieved!
Taxi had a great time with Ashley and Cosmo! She did not want to leave when it was time to pick her up and go home. Ashley was very thorough and responsive during the booking process and on the day of the vacay. We will definitely start taking Taxi to Ashley's for day care on a regular basis!

My dog Kira always enjoys her stay at Ashley's. She gets to play with other dogs and their cat when's she's over there . They also help out with keeping our dog on track with her training. They even look in on our cat when we are out of town for more than a couple days. We tried other hosts and daycares before but we are sticking with Ashley.

These guys are great - I would definitely recommend them. We met beforehand so I felt totally comfortable leaving my pup with them and they sent lots of photos and updates while I was gone.
Ashley and Alex are great hosts! We were very comfortable leaving Zoe with them! We will definitely be their repeat customers!
Booking with Ashley and Alex was very easy. I had some concerns about my dog because she's a bit high energy and overly social. Alex took the time to talk with me beforehand and agreed that Elma would fit in ok. I know she can be a lot to handle but they worked with her on setting boundaries and helping her (hopefully) learn how to be a nice guest. Thank you!

Diddles loves her vacays at Cosmo's Corner. She's a regular there now and has so many new doggie friends. Ashley and Alex are great - they make pickup and drop off so easy! They send daily photos of Diddles with her new friends and always seem to be making her feel comfortable whether they're snuggling with her or she's just snoozing in a doggie bed. They have plenty of doggie beds and toys for their vacationing dogs. They feed her her special food and I don't have to worry that she's lovely. I couldn't be happier with Cosmo's Corner and hope Ashley and Alex never leave! It's really the perfect place for my dog

Hands down, BEST DOG SITTERS EVER! Will absolutely take my dogs to Ashley and Alex again.
They always treat my dog she is part of the family. An absolute wonderful experience each and everytime.
They watched my 11 week old puppy while I worked. They sent me photos of her during the day and allowed her to safely interact with some of their dogs. Izzy seemed happy upon pick up.
I couldn't be Amy happier with our dog sitting experience! A perfect match for our dogs. Very highly recommend!
I can't say enough about Ashley and Alex. So easy to communicate with through our entire trip. One of our dogs gets major anxiety and was having major tummy issues because of it. Ashley kept me very up to date with her condition, fed her well with chicken and rice, and since that still didn't help, even took her to the vet for us. During all of this she didn't make us feel like she was put out or anything and they dealt with A LOT!! Our dogs left just as happy as ever.

Stella had a great day with Ashley and Alex!
Ashley and Alex are so wonderful! They are very responsive and accommodating. We left our dog, Stella, with them for a week and received picture updates throughout the week. It's comforting knowing that they care as much for Stella as we do, and that Stella has other dogs to play with while we are away. Ashley and Alex run a very smooth operation!

Amazing!
Ashley and Alex are excellent communicators and very responsive. Very happy with our first visit- will use again
Ashley was amazing! My dog (Proton) set off on a marking mission in their house and they were incredibly understanding and fitted him with a belly band after running it by me. I got lots of updates when I was gone and feel really comfortable leaving him with them again! Awesome awesome host!

Pepper had a great time playing with other dogs and Ashley and Alex were really understanding and responsive to our texts and requests for photos. These two are very knowledgeable and accommodating.
Ashley is great. They take such great care of my dog and are very in-tune with taking care of the dogs that they board.
Ashley and Alex have been wonderful! When making reservations, they usually get back to us in a matter of minutes. Our dog is a bit picky about where she stays and who she gets along with, but always loves staying with them, and seems to get along with their very friendly dog and cat. We've done both daycare and overnight, and our dog always comes home tired and happy. We will never go back to the large, warehouse-style doggy daycare!

I reached out to Ashley and Alex at the last minute, and pretty early in the morning, to see if they could take care of my dog when a family emergency arose. They responded within minutes and I could not have been more satisfied with how they took care of Katie. Very personal, but also very professional, and I loved the pictures and updates they sent me. Thanks so much, would definitely recommend and would definitely use again.
Read More...
Absolutely the best!!! Ashley and Alex are so considerate and loving of my two babies. Sending me updates throughout the day and photos which is very important to me. This is the first time that I've had no worries When dropping off my dogs with people other than my parents. Just driving pass their use on our outings gets my dogs tails wagging. Their second home for sure...THANKS SOOOOOO MUCH??????

Alex and Ashley are great! I am a PA and my schedule at the hospital sometimes changes unexpectedly; Alex and Ashley have been so flexible and my mind is always at ease with Letty stays with them.
Could not be happier with Ashley and Alex and could not be more confident that Oakley is in good hands during his stay. Oakley really has adapted to Ashley and Alex, I believe they are true dog people and have a great set-up for dogs staying with them. They are easy to reach and flexible, communicate very well.
Read More...
Alex and Ashley are so great and make the dogsitting experience easy! They were very prompt to reply to our request and took excellent care of our dog Stella, sending photos of her to us throughout the day. We highly recommend them and will definitely be using their service again soon.

I'm so happy I found Ashley and Alex on Dog Vacay - they took excellent care of my kitties while I was out of the country and sent updates through the app that I could see when I was able to connect to the internet. I was completely out of touch, which can be nerve racking! But I had no worries and knew that my kitties were being well taken care of!
Read More...
Bo was well taken care of. I recommend using Ashley.
Ashley & Alex were absolutely professional and a pleasure to work with. I got daily photos of maggie mae and they were both flexible and responsive. Highly recommend.
Our hound baby Lola gets to play at Alex and Ashley's house twice a week and she absolutely loves it! She is excited to see me when I pick her up... but only for a second...because she want to go back in and continue to play with her new friends! I highly recommend Cosmo's Corner. Ashley is extremely knowledgable about dogs and she gives great suggestions and answers all of our puppy related questions. Your pup will love Cosmo's Corner!

Once again Ashley and Alex come through for my anxious pup! I'm no longer worried about leaving her now that I know she can stay with them. They treat her like their own, and I get an update and picture every day I'm away. Thanks guys!
Great experience again, thanks for the short notice care!
Ashley and Alex were amazing! Lola's first time away from home went very smoothly and we even went home with some valuable recommendations. We are looking forward to having Lola stay with Ashley and Alex again whenever we are out of town or will be away from home for an extended period of time.

Zoe had a great time with Ashley over the summer!
Ashley was great! Really flexible and overall awesome to work with. She sent daily texts with pics and updates of Chatham. Will definitely recommend!
Highly recommended by Wilson and his humans :)
We never have to worry about our pup when he's with Ashley and Alex!
Awesome vacay experience!
Our trip had to be extended and Ashley and Alex were so willing and able to look after Wilson for the extra days we needed. It was nice not having to stress out about who would look after our pup, while also having to stress out about changing travel plans.
Read More...
I am very satisfied with my experience! I booked them last minute before the blizzard and they were VERY accommodating. They kept me up to date with my puppies behaviors and moods. I got frequent pics and videos. They are ver knowledgable on animal safety and behaviors. I felt very comfortable leaving my puppy here. They additionally were willing to keep him longer than planned.
Read More...
I used the daycare services and I had a great experience! I appreciated that the staff kept me updated and even sent me a picture of my puppy (KJ) to assure me that he was in good hands... I will be definitely be sending KJ back!
Ashley and Alex were great with Cro Mag. We really hate leaving our sweet girl for any period of time especially with someone we do not know. Ashley and Alex met up with us prior to the Vacay dates and we felt great after meeting them. We usually take her on trips with us but couldn't this holiday. Ashley and Alex know dogs and do slow introductions and accommodate to all temperaments. Naturally we were still nervous leaving her but they updated us with photos and kept us informed on how she was doing frequently. I highly recommend them to watch your family member as well!
Read More...
Ashley was great! This was my first experience with dog vacay and it was super easy. They sent text updates which was great and were very easy to schedule with. I felt like my dog was well taken care of for the weekend!
Nelson had a great time at Ashley and Alex's house! They provided updates throughout the night which made us feel very comfortable. I highly recommend Ashley and Alex for your dogs vacation!
As a new puppy mom, I was extremely nervous leaving Stella alone for a whole week! Ashley made it very calming both before and during our trip. She was easy to communicate with and would send me daily updates on how Stella was doing. It was very reassuring knowing that she was flexible and experienced to provide the best care for Stella while we were away. Would definitely contact again for another vacation and highly recommend to anyone looking for a dog sitter!

Ashley and Alex were such gracious and flexible hosts! I needed my dog to stay for five days over Christmas, and this reservation was made very last-minute. Ashley responded to my inquiry almost immediately, and was on the phone with me a few minutes after that!

From the get-go, I knew that my dog would be in good hands when I was the one answering questions about how she behaves on her own, with other dogs, and away from me. My pup is a bit awkward, so she definitely benefited from all of the TLC they provided while she was at "camp" for the first time.

I loved that they thought to text me photos throughout her stay, and couldn't be happier with the care she received.

I don't travel frequently, and can usually manage to have someone look after her in her own space -- but I will DEFINITELY re-book with Ashley if I ever need to "board" her again.
Read More...
Great couple to choose to watch your dog. Gave updates while away and treated my dog superbly. I would highly recommend them to anyone
As always Ashley & Alex (and pup Cosmo), are nothing but a joy to interact with! They are flexible, kind, dependable, and nothing but loving to my pup Jackson. When I ask Jackson "wanna go to daycare?", he becomes beyond excited, running laps around the house and looking towards the front door. I guess he enjoys his time there?! I couldn't ask for a better and more involved couple to care for my boy when I'm out of town. Thank you!

They are so awesome. They were able to dog siy Biggs last minute while I take my cruise. They gave me daily updates and are super friendly. I'm almost positive this will be my babys home away from home.
Ashley and Alex are so dependable and always graciously accommodates our needs. Will definitely continue to avail of their services. Our furry child is well taken cared of.
This was our first time leaving Buster and we were so glad we found Ashley and Alex. They were quick to respond to my reservation questions. They were friendly, knowledgeable about my dog breed and described what Buster's weekend was going to look like. Drop off and pick up was very convenient. We will definitely be using them again!

This was Tucker's 2nd stay and he was in great hands! Ashley sent me daily pictures and updates. I was also pleased that my pup was supervised around the clock. She also gave him supervised socialization with a couple of pups, which he really needed. I was very thankful for her and Alex's hospitality while we were on vacation .

I can't say enough good things about Ashley and Alex! We are new puppy parents, so leaving our little Georgie (English bulldog) in someone else's hands was nerve-wracking-- especially because we are so strict and consistent on behaviors and potty training. I showed up for our first reservation (a bundle of nerves) with a 4-page guide and a tote bag full of stuff...for my 5lb puppy. Georgie climbed into Ashley's arms and fell asleep, and I got to enjoy my day worry-free! Not only do they love and care for our little girl, but they also maintain her training regimen, teach me something new every time I see them, and give Georgie valuable social time with their little cutie Cosmo. They are always flexible with making reservations and Alex even unloads Georgie's crate from my car when I arrive. We are so lucky to have them in our lives!

Our pup loved her time with Ashley!
My dog loves it here! The picture updates were great and they were available last minute! Will definitely use them again and again for my pooch home away from home!
Ashley was great. We received photos and information about Hudson via our cell phone. Good job Ashley!
Ashley and Alex are fantastic, really love dogs, send us pictures of our dog every day, and, I could go on and on....
First time ever using DogVacay and I was so happy with this experience. Ashley sent me updates and pictures the whole time we were gone, which I was very happy with. Since she is home most of the day, I know that Muffin got more company and walks than she usually does at home! The price was right and I would definitely book with Ashley again.

Ashley was flexible and more than accommodating with drop off and pick up, Gia was in great hands1
Like so many other dog parents, our dog Layla is our world, so we are very picky about who she stays with when we are out of town. Ashley and Alex were wonderful with Layla! She came home absolutely exhausted from her DogVacay with them. Ashley and Alex were very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, sent us plenty of updates and pictures over the weekend, and were very responsive and professional. They were dog-sitting a couple other dogs over the weekend, so Layla had plenty of pups to hang out and play with. I would definitely recommend them and I'm sure Layla will be back for a DogVacay stay in the future!

Ashley and Alex have been great. My puppy is still young and learning and their patience has been beyond wonderful. She will be back!
Used Ashley & Alex many times and have always been happy & so has our Snickers
Beezie has been a repeat visitor at Ashley's. She is very good at sending updates and ensuring us that our dog is doing well and in safe and capable hands. Highly recommended and will continue to use her in the future.
Excellent communication and updates on how my puppy was doing while I was away. Thanks!
Ashley and Alex are AWESOME! My husband and I feel so happy knowing he's with great people and furry friends that give him plenty of love and attention :)
Ashley and her partner are very easygoing and pleasant to deal with and were able to accommodate my late notice request with no issues. They are very loving with my pug Koko.
Quick reply and very professional. She took great care of my dog while I was away. Will use again. Thanks!
Wilson had another great vacay at Cosmo's Corner! Very happy repeat client :)
Our dog Zaeber had a blast his second time staying with Ashely, Alex and Cosmo. They are wonderful and they are fantastic with our dog. We receive pictures and updates everyday and I feel so comfortable and don't feel bad for leaving him anymore.
Wilson gets so excited for his vacays at Cosmo's Corner! Ashley and Alex are awesome, flexible and just great people all around! Great experience, yet again!
Wonderful second vacay at Cosmo's Corner! Our pup looked happy and comfortable the whole time. He really responds well to Ashley and Alex being around and available throughout the day. Very very happy to have found Ashley, Alex, Cosmo and Whiskey :)
Another great stay with Ashley and Alex!! My dog has anxiety issues and is on medication. I have no worries when she stays with these folks. They take great care of her and actually seem to enjoy her company, which is nice. Thanks, Ashley and Alex!!

Sophie has stayed with Ashley and Alex 4 times and she has always had a good time. Ashley responds quickly to any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend them as pet sitters. Sophie is a puppy and that is no issue for them.
Ashley was great! She sent me pics and updates throughout the stay. Thank you for taking care of Sherlock!
This was Acer's first time away from us, and he struggled. Ashley and Alex were extremely patient with us and kept us informed as he gradually relaxed a bit. My granddaughter calls them the dog whisperers. They clearly understood his anxiety and initial acting out and were consistently kind and understanding. They went above and beyond to help Acer deal with his separation anxiety, despite his initial aggressiveness. We can't thank them enough!

Ashley and Alex are great with "Stoney". He is always excited to see them. I highly recommend them!
Did a really good job with and it looked like he was having a good time with the many visual updates that were sent.
Simply put, just awesome. I can't thank them enough for the care they provided Robby. Sending daily updates with pictures.... it really made things easier for us. I'm glad I found them and they will be my go to everytime from here on out. You guys rock!!

Ashley and Alex have done a great job every time Snickers stays at their house. They text photos of him, are very accommodating about drop off and pick up times. We will continue to use them when we go out of town.
Ashley and Alex are wonderful dog sitters. They kept me abreast on the daily status of our dog. Communication is great! Will certainly use their services again!
Ashley and Alex were kind enough to take my dog Lola on short notice. We were scheduled for vacation and Lola had a very bad hot spot making it difficult for her to come with us. They took good care of her and her hot spot. Thank you both!!!!!
Ashley and Alex were FANTASTIC hosts to our dog, Wilson! They took him in and cared for him like he was one of their own. We received numerous pictures and updates on how Wilson was doing. We loved it! He looked happy and comfortable the enitre vacay. They really understood his needs. We could not be more thrilled to have found such great people to look after our little man! Highly recommended!!

This was our first time using this website and we were very satisfied. Ashley did an amazing job with our dogs. They both had fun and received walks everyday. She sent us updates and pictures everyday we were gone. We will differently use her again.
Ashley and her husband were great. Just perfect from start to finish. Maple seemed very happy.
They were wonderful! Ashley sent photos throughout the day to keep my in the loop on Rosie's adventures (and naps!). She was a happy camper when I picked her up. It was really wonderful.
Ashley and Alex were amazing. I will definitely work with them again in the future.
Ashley and Alex were GREAT!! They updated us daily with pictures of our pup. We would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be using them again when we are in the area!!
Jelly Bean's visit with Ashley and Alex, Cosmo and Whiskey was wonderful! Jelly Bean took to them immediately. We received beautiful picture updates during her stay. The drop off and pick up were seamless. Jelly Bean had such a good time that she wanted to stay a little longer rather than come home with us!
Thank you Ashley and Alex for taking Jelly Bean on short notice, and loving her like your own! We plan to use your services again on future vacations!

Ashley and Alex are the absolute best! My boyfriend Steve and I just adopted a dog a few months ago, and were very nervous leaving our dog Mochi behind on vacation. Ashley and Alex were available for a meet and greet, which I highly recommend! They scheduled with us very promptly from the website, and then we texted to coordinate a day. The meet and greet was perfect - we met their dog Cosmo and took a quick walk around the block to talk about Mochi and let the dogs get acquainted. After that, we set up a drop off/pick up time and I scheduled via the Dog Vacay website. Ashley sent us pictures and videos every day while we were on vacation! Mochi loved it there and had a great time with his new friend Cosmo! Will definitely go back to them if we go out of town again!

Ashley was great...needed her last minute and she accommodated my little guy....I felt so relived when I dropped him off...she even sent me videos (which were hilarious by the way) and kept me updated on how he was doing. I was worried because he was not housebroken at the time. She was so good with him!

Ashley and her boyfriend were great!!! She is so friendly and responds very quickly. She is also very flexible; we had to extend our dogs stay on short notice. We loved the daily updates that included pictures and videos. She is also very observant and took notice when my dogs allergies were acting up and gave him medicine when needed. We will definitely be using her services again :-)

Ashley and her boyfriend were great. This was the first time I used this site, and my girlfriend and I were incredibly at ease dropping our boys off. You can tell this couple has a genuine appreciation and care for dogs, and seemed so excited to meet my schnauzer and pug. We were gone for about 24 hours and Ashley texted pictures and updates of the boys. We will definitely be requesting to leave the boys here again across the summer!

Felt very comfortable leaving my lab with Ashley and Alex. From the beginning, they were responsive and easy to work with and continued to send me pictures and updates with how my dog was doing during his stay.
"Stoney" loves going to Ashley and Alex's house. They do an excellent job with our dog and I would highly recommend them to anyone! What a great find that they are!
I was immediately drawn to Ashley and Alex because between the two, they are home for most of the day. I am as well, so I knew that Tuck would be on a similar schedule that he normally is on. He had a blast- he's been sleeping for the last 24 hours after all the excitement he had! Ashley texted me pictures and videos my entire trip, and I knew Tuck was probably having more fun at their house than he does at home! Looking forward to booking with them again soon!

Ashley and Alex were great! Not only were they really skilled at dealing with my admittedly anxious dog, but they were actually excited to have her and seemed to really enjoy spending time with her. I got tons of pictures and videos while on my trip, as well as texts prior to the trip telling me how much they were looking forward to having her. It really eased my mind since Olive isn't used to being watched by strangers.

They were easy going about some of Olive's issues. She immediately had an accident on the floor when she arrived, and they acted like they weren't phased one bit.

They were also really flexible about drop off and pick up, working with me minute to minute when my travel plans got messed up returning home.

I recommend them wholeheartedly, and will definitely bring Olive to them again if they (and Cosmo!) will have her. :)

Alex and Ashley were wonderful with Oliver and I could tell from all of the updates that he was very comfortable and happy! They were incredibly flexible and helpful when our flight was extremely delayed and we had to pick him up late. We got daily pictures and updates for Oliver and they clearly love dogs and make them feel at ease. We are SO thankful that Oliver has a great place to go on vacation!

Highly recommend! Ashley and Alex were gracious hosts, totally normal and nice people, and great with our pup, Ellie. They were flexible and understanding. Ellie seemed to really enjoy hanging out with their pets. And we would definitely make more reservations of the opportunity arises :)

Tucker is new to our home and at only 15 weeks we were really hesitant about leaving him while on vacation. However, after Meeting Ashley we immediately felt comfortable. She was always available to address any concerns or annoying questions we had. She also assured me that she would keep our pup separate from the other dogs since he has not socialized with many dogs yet. We took Tucker over to briefly visit before leaving him and he immediately took to Ashley and her husband as well as the other pets. During his stay, They gated him off using a baby gate so that he still had interaction with the other dogs which he actually loved. During Tucker's stay with Ashley and Alex, we received around the clock pictures and updates. We were very pleased to know that they treated our pup with as much love and care as their own pets. In addition, Ashley and Alex kept up with our normal feeding, sleep and rewarding routine that we use at home. I was so thankful that my dog was in excellent care with Ashley and Alex. My husband and I will definitely use them again for our next vacation.

5 stars - It worked out great and the dogs seemed to be relaxed when I arrived. Good communication.
Our 5 lb Morkie is very skittish and scared of other dogs and new situations. Ashley and Alex helped make him feel more comfortable, as well as put us at ease so we could enjoy our vacation. They were also very flexible with the pick-up time which we appreciate. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of Pickle!

Ashley and Alex were great hosts to Zara! They took phenomenal care of her for over a week, with text updates everyday. Zara seemed very happy when I picked her up and almost mad to have left! I definitely recommend this host to anyone looking for a great loving environment for their pets.

My boyfriend and I usually don't like leaving our dogs when we go out of town because they get homesick very easily but Ashley and Alex kept us up to date on everything. They were sending us pictures, letting us know if they were on their best behavior (or not), or if they were not eating their meals. Our hearts were at eased every time we got an update from them, which allowed is to have fun on our trip. Our dogs looked like they were happy and having fun at their home which made us happy knowing they're okay. Thank you Ashley and Alex or understanding the mindset of a dog-parent!

Ashley and Alex were awesome! No problem with the last minute booking I tossed their way. As soon as I met them I knew my bud was in loving hands! The updates and pics were great! When I picked my bud up I could tell he was absolutely smitten with both of them! Looking forward to my next trip knowing he's going to be in great hands! We all love our dogs, and it sucks to leave them, but with Ashley and Alex you can rest assured that your little buddy is in the best hands you could ever hope for! Thanks again guys!

Ashley and her husband were wonderful hosts for our Polu. They sent multiple pictures and videos daily to make us feel very comfortable that Polu was safe. Him and their dog Cosmo got a long just fine, even trading beds! They were very accommodating of Polu as he tried to steal away Cosmo's toys. They seemed to keep Polu very happy and even washed his favorite hoody for him. They were very flexible with pickup and dropoff and Polu seemed to have a great stay with them. We would not hesitate to use them again. We look forward to seeing them soon to pick up Polu's favorite hoodie he left behind.

Kirk had a lot of fun during his stay and Ashley kept me updated with many great pictures. We'd definitely recommend them to others!
Ashley and Alex are extremely professional and friendly. I've left Bolt with them twice now and he's had a great time each time. I get updates from Ashley every few hours with picture of all the great fun Bolt is having. I can tell that they have a passion for the pets they take care of. I am so glad I've found them! I feel so much less guilt leaving Bolt behind when I know he's with them having a great Ashley, Alex and Cosmo!

Ashley was very accommodating and made me feel very comfortable leaving Bagel with her and Alex. She sent photos of Bagel snuggling them and I felt like he was really getting a lot of attention. It was my first time using DogVacay and I will definitely be using it again.

Great hosts and very caring. Kept us updated with pictures and progress reports.
Ashley and Alex were wonderful hosts, yet again! They treated Hamish like one of their own and sent along picture updates! We couldn't be happier.
Ashley & her significant other were awesome caretakers of our 8 yr-old Pointer Mix during my family's 7-day trip to Mexico. It was our first time needing a dog sitter since moving to Baltimore, and we decided to try Dog Vacay as an alternative to kennels. Ashley was extremely flexible, allowing us to drop off our dog at 5 am on a Saturday to catch an early flight and pick out little guy up at 7pm on the following Friday night. Best of all, she emailed or texted me photos each day to alleviate some of our anxiety about our dog being someplace new. Our dog seemed very happy when we picked him up, and we can't thank Ashley enough!!

We were so pleased with our dog's stay and will certainly book a reservation soon.
Ashley was excellent! She sent lots of updates and photos, and was very flexible when our flight got delayed returning to Baltimore. Would definitely recommend!
Awesome host! My husband and I needed a place for our pup for two weeks while we had our first baby and welcomed her home. Ashley and Alex ensured George was safe, happy and healthy to say the very least! I had multiple updates daily including pictures of all the things they were doing together! He came home and looked like he had a great time! I'd recommend Ashley and Alex to anyone!!!

Snickers loves staying with Ashley and Alex. He does not usually get along with other dogs, but he and cosmo seemed to get along fine. We have called on Ashley and Alex for a spur of the moment stay and they were more than accommodating.
Ashley and her husband were great! They accepted our reservation very quickly when we needed a last minute dog sitter! Our dog was immediately happy to play with their dogs and they made us feel at ease with leaving him. Ashley provided regular updates and they treated our dog as one of their own. They were very flexible with pick up times.

Ashley and Alex went out of their way to make our large pup feel at home, including spend time with him one-on-one and hand feeding when he decided to go on a (brief) hunger strike! They also took him to see some historical Baltimore monuments (i.e., flag museum) and provided some adorable photographs. They were so friendly and accommodating; next time we're out of town, we'll happily call them again!

Alex and Ashley were very accommodating so we were able to drop Snickers off and pick him up when it was convenient for us. They were very considerate at gradually introducing their dog to Snickers as they knew Snickers was a little on the nervous side. We have already requested they keep Snickers another time.
