Great experience. Mack was well taken care of and had a great time.
Robert took great care of Ace. He gave frequent updates and was very easy to contact. I would definitely book with him again!
Bear loves staying with Robert
Robert is great!
Seems like a nice host. Too bad he was taking care of aggressive dogs, but everything was blamed on my dog because she's a pitbull puppy. I was told to find another host that same day, while I was half way out of state, and was very pushy about it. Too much prejudice on this site against pitbulls. She's never been aggressive towards other dogs and people, and it's not the first time someone has taken care of her. Never again.

Robert was fabulous??
Mr. Robert was a wonderful host to my puppy Maurley! He accepted her with open arms and took good care of her while I had to work! I know for a fact she had a good time because she was completely worn out when she made It home. Mr. Robert was also very understanding of me getting off late, even though I felt terrible. But he never complained and always displayed a wonderful attitude! Maurley will definitely be visiting again!

Robert W is great! We'll hire again.
Great guy! Very very accommodating! Will hire again
Robert is the best. He is the most reliable and responsible person I've encountered in a long time. He is also very accommodating. He even postponed his own dog's surgery to make sure he was available for me. My first impression was that I could trust him, and he proved me absolutely right! Robert takes great care of my baby and he walks him frequently. I give Robert 10 stars!

Robert is fantastic. We always leave Chandler with him when we are out of town. He is accommodating, extremely nice, and always keeps up updated about how our dog is doing. Our dog gets excited just seeing us pack and drive towards his place. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs a place to leave their dogs.

Robert has been great! He is flexible in times for drop-offs and pick-ups having a large dog (and a small one) it's sometimes difficult to find someone who is willing to take both. The dogs are always excited to go there and are very relaxed when I pick them up.

Robert was great to communicate with and I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with him. Will use him again.
Our dog Champ enjoyed his stay with Robert. Robert sent us multiple photos of the visit and made us feel comfortable leaving Champ. We would definitely use Robert again.
Robert is awesome!. Starts the morning with pictures of Kenzie and her pals. Kenzie really enjoys her time with Robert and I'm extremely satisfied with the level of care and attention he pays to my pet.
As a new pet owner, trying to find the right sitter was a but intimidating. So what a pleasant surprise it was when I found Robert. Our initial meet and greet gave me insight as to what type of sitter he would be. He answered every question I had thoroughly and with patience. My Kenzie felt immediately at ease in his home. I'm proud to say we found our guy.

Robert is a great host! He sends lots of pictures, so you can always be sure your pet is having a good time, and he responds to messages almost instantly. My dog is always excited to go and sad to leave. I leave my dog with him every time I am out of town.

Robert was great. Very attentive and also took our dog to the vet when he got an infection. I would recommend him to others.
As always, kids had a great time with Robert & familiar guests. Pay attention, unlike me, his address has changed. Thank you Robert!!
Dogs had a very Happy Thanksgiving Week with Robert
Wonderful host. We met ahead of time and discussed any concerns and introduce our dogs. He kept me updated with daily photos and updates. Lincoln was happy when I came home, and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again next time I have to go out of town.
Our two girls spent 3 months with Robert over the summer. They had a great time and returned to us clean and happy.
Our two girls stayed with Robert during our holiday trip and had a great time. Planning to do it again this year!
Robert took great care of my kids! Kyla & Puff both had tails a wagging once they realized whose house we were at!! They slept great lastnight. Thanks again Robert!!
Great as always!
Chandler clearly enjoyed her stay at Robert's house. She is still sleeping from all the playtime.
Our dogs love being with Robert. I do wish he had contacted us about the behavior of one of our dogs before the end of their stay. That way, we could have talked through the dog's issue and hopefully solved the problem right away. I think he was trying to be positive that it would "go away," but that approach is not useful for me or my dogs.
I would totally recommend Robert ... just communicate your needs and all will go well.

Excellent Experience!

This was my first time leaving my pup with a sitter. Robert was very informative and easy to work with. He accommodated my last minute travel plans, which was a big deal for me. I would call Robert again in the future if a need came up, and I would highly recommend Robert to anyone who is searching for a caring host for their pup.

Thanks!

Robert took great care of my dogs who are 6 and 1-1/2. My dogs fit in well with the household and his 6-year-old Tuffy.
It was nice to get photos while we were away of our dogs playing or resting. I also knew I could call him if we had questions. I texted him once or twice to see how things were going, especially the 1st and 2nd day when meal time and bed time can be a problem in a new place.
It was nice to be able to relax on MY vacation knowing that my dogs were well taken care of. I would recommend Robert to anyone looking for a caring pet sitter.

Milou got the best of care. Robert sent updates and quick to answer emails. Highly recommended!
Robert was very professional and communication was perfect! I usually worry too much, but I had confidence that Robert would take great care of Paisley. When I picked her up, I could tell she must have had a blast playing with everyone. She slept the entire 3 hour trip home! I would recommend him immediately and will definitely contact him If I need a sitter in the Dallas area again! Thank you Robert!

This was the second time I left my labrador with Robert on very short notice for a week. Once again, he took very great care of him with updates and photos sent throughout the trip and it was obvious my dog not only had a good time, but got plenty of exercise.

Robert was awesome! Absolutely no problems booking or picking up and Tesla said she had a great time! Highly recommend.
Robert provided daily updates, made my dog feel completely at home, and was extremely professional. Highly recommend and will be booking again!
My dogs stayed with Robert and Tuffy again. This time I had a third addition to the family and he was happy to take her as well. The two that had previously stayed there drug me to the door with excitement. They knew where they were and couldn't wait to get in. They seem to really enjoy their stay with Robert and Tuffy. I love having this personal service and the peace of mind that my precious family members are safe and happy. Thanks for another great stay!

Robert is very professional and accommodating. He loves dogs and treats them well. I appreciated the photo updates. Very clean and nice home with great enclosed yard for dogs entertainment. Tuffy got along great with Joey. I'm sure he will be missing him!

Our two small dogs stayed with Robert for 90 days over the summer. We received updates/photos regularly, they were groomed, and given their monthly revolution. They are home now and they are happy and healthy. They had a great experience and so did we!

Our dog recently stayed with Robert for 8 days. He was great about giving us brief updates and sending photos of her. We didn't end up Skypeing (didn't set it up on our end) but he seemed really open to it. Robert's home is very clean and his yard is fenced in. Our dog seemed very content when we got her back (this has not always been the case in the past). Robert was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, which was really helpful. We would not hesitate to use Robert again!

I was leaving the state for a week and had my plans fall through for boarding just before midnight the night before leaving. After a quick Google search, I found this website and messaged Robert based on his other reviews. Within 15 minutes I had a response and had everything figured out without interfering with my trip plans early the next day. Robert was very professional, accomodating, and quick to respond anytime I messaged him while on vacation. He also sent daily updates and photos. I had my flight get cancelled and was able to text him and delay my dog's stay without any concern.

This is the first review I've left for any product or service and I would recommend Robert to anyone of my friends; your dog will be in good care and get plenty of exercise and socialized too.

Dog info: 65lb lab, 10months old - first time to be away from me.

Milou was well taken care of by Robert. He sent daily updates which gave me a peace of mind knowing that my boy is just fine. His place is spotless and that is a very good environment for humans and dogs alike. Thank you for a job well done!
Robert and Tuffy were the perfect hosts for our dogs!
1. He sent adorable photos daily.
2. We were able to Skype anytime.
3. He let them sleep where they were most comfortable which happend to be right next to his bed!
4. His home was impeccably clean.
5. You can tell that Robert loves dogs and Tuffy is very welcoming to his guests.
6. They had daily exercise in the large back yard.
7. Robert gave them pillows and covered them up with their blankets when they took naps in the sunroom.
8. He is home with them the entire time!
9. I could tell that my dogs felt right at home with Robert.
10. My dogs have come home happy and healthy without a scratch on them!

I could not ask for a better experience!!!!! Thanks again Robert and Tuffy for being the best hosts and welcoming my babies into your home offering exceptional care and love!!!! See you next time:)

I bring my 1 year old Terrier/Lab mix, Tally, to hang with Robert and Tuffy while I work long shifts at the hospital. The peace of mind that I have knowing she is in great hands and having fun while Dad's at work is priceless. She loves to romp with Robert's dog, Tuffy, who is an adorable Schnauzer and my girl always comes home tired and ready for bed. Robert is kind and professional, responds promptly and loves dogs. The environment is charming and spacious and dog friendly. I recommend Robert highly for those looking for a solution to boarding at a kennel.

Our dog, Rahzi Rae, a 1 1/2 year old Vizsla recently spent a wonderful 2 days with Robert while Mom and Dad played in Dallas. Robert loves dogs and he took very good care of her. We would definitely have Rahzi stay with him the next time we are in Dallas. Robert is conveniently located to downtown so it made it very easy for us to drop her off and pick her up with no extra driving. Rahzi loves Robert and we are happy that Robert now loves Rahzi!
Thumbs up for Robert and Dogvacay.

I had such a positive experience leaving my dogs with Robert and I'm looking forward to another "vacay" soon. Bella and Bouncer felt right at home from the moment we stepped into the house for the meet-n-greet and it was obvious how much Robert cares about dogs - I'm not so sure mine were ready to come home. Robert went above and beyond in being flexible with his schedule - at the last minute I needed to drop my dogs off a day early and he was gracious and accommodating. He did a great job of following instructions for feeding and medications and I can honestly say I did not worry about my dogs while I was gone. One of the main reasons I chose Robert was because of Tuffy - Bella needed someone to tumble with and Tuffy fit the bill. Overall it was a great experience and I'm looking forward to the next time. Thank you Robert!

Robert was a great host! Griffon stayed there for 5 days and given how tired he was when I picked him up he had a great time playing with Tuffy. Robert was very accommodating with scheduling drop-offs and pick-ups and was great giving Griffon the medicine he needed. I would definitely recommend him.

Excellent experience! Robert is super attentive, we could follow the day to day of fun for our pet through Skype. For us it was very convenient and we enjoy our quiet holiday. And for our pet was like he was on vacation.
The experience was super positive! We indicate Robert for sure!
And still in other trips we will contact him again.

Robert was a wonderful host for my mini Aussie, Scooter. He is a very caring person. His dog, Tuffy, was a great playmate for Scooter. My dog had to have drops in his eyes twice a day. Robert had no problem taking care of this issue. His home is very clean and he has a large fenced in yard. I will definitely use Robert again!

Great experience! This was my first time using Dog Vacay and Robert exceeded my expectations. He was very friendly, always quick to answer any time I contacted him and you can tell he really enjoys taking care of dogs. His house seemed very secure with plenty of space for play- also it is conveniently located in central Dallas. I recommend Robert and would definitely have Sissy stay with him again.

Robert is awesome! He loves dogs and was very sweet to our little dog. She had a great time at his house and, for the first time in a long time, she came home from a stay in a happy and energetic mood! Our dog is normally pretty shy, but she loved staying with Robert and his dog, Tuffy. Robert is home with the dogs a lot, so they get a lot of attention from him and each other. I felt so good about our dog's stay with Robert and definitely hope he can watch her again.
