3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” ~Roger A. Caras.

Two couples living in spacious apartment in Richmond . Been a dog owner for many years. People usually asks us why we do this business. To be honest, it is because we have passion of taking care of dogs (We just love them a lot! THEY ADD HAPPINESS IN OUR LIVES!)

We have a morkie, a half Maltese half Yorkie dog. She is loving, caring and playful and would like to welcome and make friends with your dogs! She loves to share her toys, her treats, her home and of course family to every dog that comes in our place. Come book with us! We will ensure that your dog/ dogs are given a wonderful vacation and a place just like home. **We also use dog vacay for our own travel needs; therefore, we know what owners expect.

Halson and Kristel are excellent host, my dog lovessss their belly rub. Definitely recommend for all of my friends! I have already made reservations for my upcoming two vacations with them!
I was anxious at first because it was my first time leaving my puppy but Halson and his girlfriend made the process a lot easier. He sends daily updates of pictures and videos with descriptions of what my puppy was up to. I was rest assured that my dog was well taken cared of in a loving home while I was away. Halson also responds very quickly. I would definitely recommend him and his girlfriend.
This was my first time using DogVacay. I gotta say, I never felt this comfortable leaving my dog with anyone. Halson sent us pics and video updates daily. My dog had lots of fun on his own vacation. I highly recommend Halson if you are looking for a place your dog will be loved and have lots of fun. My dog will definitely be returning for another great vacay.
Miko my beloved poodle had a fun vacay ! Halson and his pooch Gucci were warm loving host and provided us lots daily updates of photos and videos ??miko was happy and even chubbier after the 3 days vacay. He will definitely be staying with them again!
Halson and his girlfriend are very nice and kind , such a dog lovers!!
When I picked my dogs up, I could notice that how they stayed well.
One of my dog was sick, Halson went to Vet and took really good care of her.
They posted pictures & videos so I could see how they were doing. Thank you so much guys, I'd like to ask you again!!
Our senior dog is deaf, blind and has anxiety separation. This poses a challenge for any sitter, especially when the dog has not experienced the family away for a week. Communicating to reassure her and feel at home was so difficult but Halson heroically faced and overcame our dog's special needs and comforts.

We were so touched at what lengths he went through to do this. He slept on the floor to help her through her first night. He stayed up with her when she couldn't sleep. He took her on extra walks. He took her to the vet and had her medical needs met. ***This is especially reassuring knowing he recognized and acted responsibly with every need our dog had.***. He kept contact with us about her progress. This made it possible for us to enjoy our time away.

Our dog is our baby, even as a senior. He has earned our trust and admiration. I fully recommend Halson.
Our dogs had a great time staying with Halson and his gf at their place. They were reponsible and kind to our dogs. We met with them a couple of weeks prior to ensure our dogs would get along and we also coordinated a short visit to play with our dogs at their apt prior to their long 3 week stay. We appreciated the effort to ensure their compatibility with our dogs. Drop off and pick up was easy in Richmond and they were very accommodating. Our plane got delayed coming home and they were understanding with the delayed pickup. They sent us daily photo and video updates of the dogs during their play time and walks and they got tons of attention. They were also very considerate and asked us before feeding our dogs any treats. The dogs seemed happy and clean when they came home. We would be happy for our dogs to stay with them again!
For anyone who is a little "dog crazy" about their furry family member, I would absolutely recommend Halson and Kristel as care givers...

It was the first time I have left my baby girl in the care of someone I didn't know. I was quite nervous at first to do so but they sent me ample photos and videos that assured me that my little one was in the very best of hands. They were compassionate to my hesitation and were more than re-assuring.

They have LOADS of chew toys... and a beautiful loving docile baby girl of their own.

The "girls" cuddled together, slept together, played together and had an absolutely wonderful time. I'm so grateful that I could relax and focus on other things without having to worry in the least about the care my little one was receiving.

I would absolutely recommend their service without any hesitation and if a situation arises again where I need care for my pet, I would feel extremely comfortable leaving her with them.
Halson was great! This was the first time using DogVacay - what a treat getting photos of happy dogs while you are away.
And there is no better judge of the experience than the dogs themselves. They were happy and in great moods when I picked them up.
Well done Halson, thank you for the care you took!
Although our plans changed at the last minute and we ended up not boarding great, fast, communication nonetheless. Will use again if the opportunity arises.
Bowie stayed here for a couple of nights and seemed really happy with his stay. Halson was very accommodating and knew what he was doing. Bowie behaved very badly on his first night, but Halson was able to handle him, and was able to get him to behave for the rest of the days. Bowie was extremely hyper when I left him at Halson's but when I went to pick him up, he was a lot more docile and obedient. I highly recommend Halson.
I am Very happy with my dog vacay sitter.
It is my first time using this service and I will definitely use it next time with Halcon when I visit here and I need a dog sitter.
Very conscientious and sent pictures and video daily. Took great care of my dog and made sure she was happy and healthy.
