Andrea and Marc welcomed our fur baby into their home with such warm and open arms. Thanks to them we were able to rest easy in leaving 5mthnold Cody with them for the week, allowing us to enjoy a vacatiom together in the sun. Regular photos and updates through the week, and the best care we could have asked for! We returned to one extremely happy, content, and tired puppy who enjoyed his walks and play filled week extremely.
We can't thank you enough!
Andrea and Marc were fantastic. My dog was so well taken care of. She had a little nerves but they made sure she felt right at home. She's already going back in a couple weeks!
We had our pooch enjoy a day with Andrea and Marc in preparation for an upcoming longer stay. Lyric was well looked after and quite pooped from walkies and play time with one of the other borders. It's very good knowing she will do well during a longer stay and enjoy her time and daily outings. The photo updates are extra special. Thank you Andrea and Marc for taking such good care of our girl.
Andrea and Marc are only the second sitters I have met through DogVacay and the only ones I have used for an overnight stay, and if they are the last, I would be quite happy... because Thör won the jackpot when we found Andrea and Marc. No need to keep looking - he had so much fun he slept for a whole day, pretty much with a smile on his face. Happily, I slept for most of the nights that he was gone, also with a smile on my face, because I wasn't worried. Andrea sent pics and updates, and I could tell when I arrived that these were dog people. They knew what they were doing and their own pets were family bit also had clear boundaries. Thör would be in a safe place, with safe people and with safe resident pets. - and I could relax.

Andrea was great about responding to messages quickly, and being flexible while we worked out options to fit in a meet and greet into same weekend as he was to be boarded.

I don't normally really make New Year's resolutions, but I have one for 2017... regular sleepovers for Thör in the country with Andrea and Marc so that I can have a weekend away from my 70 lb Velcro shadow every now and then.

(Now I need to find a spot like that little piece of doggy heaven for me!)
Andrea and Marc are great! We really appreciated the care and patience they had with Chester and Minnie. We had a great time away and the dogs had a good time too! We haven't been on a trip in years so this was a big deal. We hope to take more holidays and book with Andrea and Marc!
We had a great experience with Andrea and Marc! You can see their genuine love for dogs, and our dog, Beau, came home a relaxed, unstressed puppy. We look forward to booking with them again. Thanks Andrea and Marc!
Andrea did a stellar job of looking after our rather large, biggest baby ever puppy. We loved the photos and updates while we were away too. It was such a relief to not have to worry about him the whole time we were away. Thanks Andrea for taking such great care of our sweet boy!
Max was super happy when we picked him up. Lots of pictures to show he was having fun. Will certainly book again!
We had to book an extra couple of days and everything went smooth. Awesome place for Luna.
We are very happy to have found such a great place for Luna. Andrea and Marc are natural dog lovers and welcomed her as one of their own. Communication was also fantastic, with constant updates with photos of Luna. Since she has allergies during this time of the year, they took great care of her. Thank you again A+M!
Fantastic experience. We got pics of Kipper during her stay and knew she was doing well and was happy. Kipper came back well-adjusted and calm. Will definitely re-book with Andrea again!
Andrea and Marc went above and beyond, looking after my very anxious dog for 10 days.
Our 3 year old black lab, Molly, had her first daytime stay with Andrea and Mark and had a very positive experience. They are clearly knowledgable, caring dog people. We appreciate the large country property and the skill with which they manage the dogs. We have booked a longer stay soon and are very comfortable about leaving her again.
Our dog Shelby enjoyed her time with Andrea and Mark. Upon meeting them, we knew Shelby would enjoy your vacation....so much so that she slept the whole way home! Fresh air, dogs to play with and acres to run :)
Murphy had an absolutely amazing time, he loved being at Andrea and Marc's so much that he tried to jump out of the jeep to see Marc again as we were leaving!
Our dog Pip had an excellent stay with Andrea. Andrea is a wonderful dog-sitter and ensures that the dogs feel at home. She is obviously a dog lover. We would not hesitate to book with Andrea again. Shelley
They were amazing! The dogs had a great time. Would not hesitate to use them again!
Zeus loves his stays with Andrea and Marc. When we went last weekend, we drove past the driveway. Zeus went bananas in the back seat. When we turned around he settled down a little and then when we pulled into the driveway he sat quietly wagging his tail with a big smile on his face! Obviously very upset when he thought we were going past! He runs to their door and can't wait to see them!
Bandit and Jynxie had an amazing first stay back in May. I had never used a sitter but my hubby was away on an army tour and I was sent way up north last minute. Both she and Marc did everything they could to work with my schedule and theirs for a quick meet and greet. While I was away I got pictures and updates regularly. One of the pups was under the weather but they handled everything so well! So much so that I've dropped the pups off a second time and will continue to as long as they'll have my boys. They are so well taken care of they almost don't want to come home!!
The wee pup didn't want to get in the car to come home ! An excellent experience .
We were very impressed with Marc and Andrea. I am so thankful that we could leave Sheena with them and not have to put her in a kennel. I will definitely go back again when the occasion arises. Sheena had lots of fields to roam in. Thanks again Marc and Andrea.
From the initial meet and greet, we knew that Andrea and Marc would take excellent care of Astro. Their knowledge and love of dogs is evident. Further, Andrea always responds to our messages quickly and is very accommodating. So far, Astro has stayed twice with them and their pack. On his second stay, he was so happy to get there that we believe he must have remembered from his first stay with them! We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting the best for their dog while they are on their own vaycay!
Zeus had a great time! They are kind caring people! I would leave Zeus with them any time. Thank you so much!
We love dropping Parker off with Andrea and Mark and their animal family. She's excited to be there and exhausted when she gets home. It's so nice to know Parker is so well cared for when we're away.
Andrea is just awesome...Phoebe seems so happy there!!
Another holiday for Parker with Andrea and it was great! Well cared for, happy and tired from all the exercise and play.
Andrea was great with Phoebe when I dropped her off..being a very anxious little dog it was nice that she opens her home and you are left feeling at ease that your pet is not stuck in a crate for 80 percent of the stay. She emailed pics and is very good to return calls and texts. The website is also great with communicating back and forth. She has a great property for the animals to run around..very safe and spacious. I would definitely recommend her to others. Jennifer Chenier
This is our second vacay with Andrea. Our dog was thrilled to go back. 'Spoiled rotten', 'pampered' and 'home away from home' are the words that come to mind. You can tell the hosts love all furry friends. We will be back!
A fantastic experience for Parker, she was well looked after and accepted into the pack. We'll definitely be back.
Once again I'm so impressed with the quality of care that Dog Vacay offers. This time I was on my way to Mexico for a week and was so happy to have Andrea and her pack take in Buttons. She had the added bonus of Dog-First Aid and CPR. Her pack is excellently behaved and Buttons fit in immediately. You can tell that she really cares and even helps out her local community rescues. Received regular photo updates and messages. Easy drop-off and pick-up.
