About Nirina And Mauricio

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Cuddles Paw Resort where your dog can relax and play! Our home includes a huge backyard for exercise and playtime and we have tons of space for downtime and relaxation. We also provide dog walking and in home visits! We have years of experience walking dogs and are comfortabke walking more than one dog at a time. We love taking them to nearby dog parks and keeping you updated with live map details of each walk! We provide a loving home for your pet (everyone here is a dog lover). We welcome all dogs, breeds, sizes,ages and we like to keep a maximum of 3 in our household. Excluding our dog Milou. If you feel uncomfortable with a certain breed or are afraid of other dogs being with your pup we can definitely accomodate that! Just let us know in advance :) so we can mark ourselves as unavailable on our calendar. We just want to make sure that you and your pup are comfortable.

We also have toys, beds, food bowls so I recommend packing light!

Schedule/About us
Nirina works 30 hours a week as a behavior therapist for individuals with autism, and currently pursuing a graduate degree in ABA and is home for parts of the day.
I am available thoughout the day so there is 24/7 supervision. We have been dog vacay host for over a year now and LOVE it!! I am a dog owner of 14 years, and worked at as a day care attendent at a boarding facility for 2 years so I have tons of experience with dogs. We try our best to make our doggy guests happy/comfortable as possible, so if your dog experiences any anxiety or need any special medication please let us know!
We are also a crate free enviornment unless you guys require a crate for your pup. But dogs are constantly let out to pee/poop every 2-4 hours!

Meet Milou
Milou is a shichi(chihuahua mix shih tzu) senior dog who is 14 years old. He loves to sleep and chill most of the day. He is usually in our room, and loves to play with dogs who have a similar temperment. He especially loves his senior friends as they cuddle and sleep throughout the day! So far Milou hasn't had any problems with any of the dogs that we had. He loves the company!

Mauricio was great and they have a nice fenced in backyard which my dog enjoyed. I got daily photos or videos with updates about how she was doing. They were quick to respond and very accommodating. My dog seemed to have a great time and was happy during her stay. Thanks!
Another great stay for Max and Charlie. Thanks Mauricio and Nirina for taking good care of them and the pictures during their stay. They always come home happy!
Great vacay! Got pictures every day, and they had a beautiful back yard for my pup to run and play in. Definitely will re-book!
Easy to work with and our dog was well cared for!!
First time using DogVacay and we left our fur baby for 10 days with Mauricio and Nirina and were so pleased. They sent regular updates with photos or video and genuinely enjoyed her company. Our dog had a playmate so she wasn't lonely and Mauricio and Nirina were so accommodating of our being nervous dog parents-they covered our pup with her favorite blanket, gave her the treat she loves and ensured us she was happy and well. Would use again for sure! Laura and Ken, Alexandria, VA
Mauricio and Nirina were great with our dog Lucky. Lucky had fun with them and enjoyed their company. I will definitely contact them again in the future.
3rd or 4th boarding for Jack, will continue!!!
We've had a wonderful expierience with Mauricio and Nirina! They are very sweet, professional and flexible young people!
Nikki was very happy with them and made many new friends. We got updates and pictures almost on daily basis while on summer vacation.
We will definitely use their service in the future!
I cant say enough about Mauricio & Nirina's quality of care for my dog Ginger...They made us both feel immediately welcome and at ease...Mauricio and Nirina were great hosts!...Ginger truly enjoyed herself, had fun and got along so well with her fellow pets playing in the backyard...Thanks Mauricio & Nirina!
My Silas had a great time here. Sweet family, plenty of pics and videos of him having a blast, and great outdoor space for free run. We will definitely be a repeat client here!
This was my third visit, and Mauricio & Nirina have gone out of their way to accommodate my need to acclimate my dog and my daughter's dog (litter mates) to their dogvacay surroundings before a long stay later this month. I appreciate their feedback, and willingness to work with us on dates and times. My 4 yr. old dog is not used to being left much, and I'm really happy I have time to get her used to the whole idea. Thanks Mauricio.
Our Harley had a great vacay with Mauricio and Nirina. They sent pictures and updates every day. Harley came home super tired so that's how I know she had a great time =). You can't go wrong with this family. They took very good care of her and loved on her just like we would. Thanks again Mauricio and Nirina!!!
Mauricio & Nirina are wonderful dog hosts! Our little guy loves going to their house and always has a good time. Thay also take good care of the dog's family, sending daily photos or videos. We will definitely use them again!
I hadn't been expecting too much since Watson (my dog) is notoriously shy and anxious around new people/stuff. However, he warmed up well in a few short days to Nirina & Mauricio! Their own pups definitely helped calm Watson's nerves and it was the first time after a boarding that he didn't want to leave when it was time to go! Highly recommend since their schedule allows for a good deal of flexibility even with their work.
Nirina and Mauricio did a fantastic job taking care of Meeka for a long weekend. They were very flexible with pick-up and drop-off and we greatly appreciated the many photo and video updates we received during Meeka's stay. She came home tired and happy and we could tell she had a great time! I would absolutely love to have her stay with them again!
Thanks to Nirina and Mauricio for taking care of my bud. He was so calm and happy when we got him back. He was there for nine days. I got updates and pics from our host more than we expected. Thanks again I was very happy with our host.
Very accommodating. Our dogs loved it. They were treated like family members.
Nirina and Mauricio are awesome pet caretakers. Buddy got to play in their yard and with their dogs. I will be booking with them again.
Awesome sitters! They are always my first choice! They take awesome care of my boxers Duke and Zeus!
They took phenomenal care of my puppy, sent lots of pictures and videos during his stay and it was obvious to me that he was comfortable with this family. I will use them again.
Nirina and Mauricio are the best! Our Corgi Kirby loves going to their house - he's even sad when he leaves at the end of the day! We highly recommend Nirina and Mauricio and we've used their services many times.
Riley had an awesome time! I would really recommend having them watch your dog. :)
Sadie Rae loved her stay. Mauricio and Nirina were great hosts and sent many photos so "Mommy" could rest assured Sadie Rae was being well cared for and enjoying her vacation.
Nirina and Mauricio were amazing! They took great care of Quincy and always had someone (or some dog) around to keep him company. We got him back happy and healthy (and quite tired from all the running around)!
Truly a vacation experience for our Shih Tzu who spent a week with Nirina and Mauricio. Regular updates were reassuring and entertaining. She clearly had fun during her stay and remained stress-free.
Nirana and Mauricio took care our puppy Coco in short notice, and they are very flexible. Coco had a good time t there care. Thank you!
Great experience! Made arrangements on short notice, sent photos and Kirby seems to have loved it.
Made reservation couple days before Jack's stay, Nirina & Mauricio reply messages promptly. Smooth drop off and pick up set up, Jack seems happy for his stay, will definitely repeat. Thank you Nirina and Mauricio :)
Mauricio and Nirina were very nice and flexible. Sadie had a blast running around and playing with other dogs.
Our dog, Nellie, had a great time with Nirina and Mauricio! We never met Nirina, but Mauricio was very friendly and welcoming to our pup. We were given the impression that Nellie was genuinely welcomed into the family. We didn't get quite as many pictures/updates as it seems that the other reviewers did, but we would certainly be willing to have Nellie stay with them again. Thanks Nirina/Mauricio!
Nirina and Mauricio were very flexible with Flash and I! I have somewhat strict instructions for my boy and they were gracious to follow them. Flash and I really appreciate it! Each time he stayed, he seemed very comfortable entering their home and I also like that he could avoid stairs. We like flat surfaces at this age :) Flash would be happy to come over again when he needs a home away from home.
Nirina and Mauricio were great with our 4.5 month old puppy! It was our first time leaving him with anyone but Nirina sent us at least one picture daily and communicated with us regularly during our trip. I would certainly recommend them to others and plan to use them when we are away next time!
I was very comfortable leaving my dog with Nirina & Mauricio. She is a bit skittish with new people but warmed up to them quickly. I loved the pictures and video they sent. My dog was very calm and happy when I picked her up. I feel very fortunate to have found Nirina & Mauricio. And I will absolutely leave my dog with them when I go away again.
Nirina and Mauricio took excellent care of my shy, senior girl Rumor. She feels most comfortable in a quiet environment and they went out of their way to make sure she was enjoying her vacation. I got pictures, videos, and updates and I think Rumor had a wonderful time! She was calm and happy when I picked her up, and I will definitely bring her back when it's time for her next vacation. Thank you!!
Winston had a wonderful time with Nirina and Mauricio! They did a great job of sending us updates and photos every day. They were also very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. We will definitely use them again!
Nirina and Mauricio were wonderful. Sending us adorable photos or video daily of Harley was such a great bonus. He seemed so happy and relaxed. We are very pleased with their kindness and love toward our doggy. As sad as we are to leave him again in a couple weeks, we feel comforted knowing he will be in a loving home with Nirina and Mauricio and their puppy companions.
Great experience -- took good care of our doggie and very nice and easy all around.
Nirina and her entire family was wonderful and accommodating with Bear! I also received daily pictures and video updates of my dog while I was away. I will definitely use her again next time.
Excellent choice! Nirina and Mauricio were great dog sitters! They kept us informed through messages, pictures and videos. Our dog had a great time with them and the other dogs. I would choose them again in the future!
Such a great job! They kept me informed and sent pictures of my dog. Will use them again.
Nirina and Mauricio were awesome hosts for my little guys! Miko and Russell came home absolutely exhausted from all the playtime. The pictures they sent were adorable and I could tell they were getting lots of love!
Friendly family with a nice spacious back yard. I felt comfortable leaving my dog there and they even sent me a video during of my dog during my trip.
They were great. Very accommodating and made things easy for me. They have a nice big yard that I know my pups had a blast playing around. They came back to me happy and healthy. Will use them again. They sent me a few pictures, but I would've loved more, only because I'm super obsessed with my dog.
Nirina and her family took excellent care of our dog while we were away for 10 days. They were very attentive to him and sent me pictures throughout the week. He seemed happy when we picked him up. I will definitely use their service again!
We were very pleased with Nirinia and her care of Bella. Bella came back to us after a week away and seemed as refreshed and lively as if she had been on vacation herself!
We were looking for someone close with reasonable price and we met Nirina & Mauricio A. We felt so good about our decision and it allowed us to have a great time on vacation for almost 3 weeks. They sent us videos and pictures of Skipper having fun with his new vacation family and friends. When we got home, Skipper was happy as usual and had no issues. It was like we never sent him. He had as good a vacation as we did! We will definitely send Skipper to Nirina & Mauricio again.
Nirina was a great host to our dog, Max. She sent updates and pictures throughout our time away. She was also willing to feed our dog a special diet, which was a huge help. She definitely knew how to care for dogs and I felt comfortable leaving Max with her. We will definitely use her again!
Duke and Zeus really had a great time with Nirina! They were both well taken care of and were exhausted when I picked them up! Excellent service and we will continue to use Nirina!
