Molson had a great stay with Jonathon! Communication was good and we received picture updates during the week. He had a field trip to the dog park. Most importantly, Molson seemed happy and healthy when we picked him up!
Absolutely wonderful experience. I had to make a last minute booking and Jonathan was very flexible to accommodate my booking and the meet and greet request. Very friendly and dog loving family, who took care of our puppy as their own. I received regular updates and pictures of Raja who had an awesome time with the family and their super friendly dog - Dexter. Highly recommended

Jonathan and his family were wonderful with our Casey. She had a mini vacation full of love, walks, and dog parks while we were away! I knew she had a great, fun-filled time when she came home and napped all afternoon! :) Thank you for putting our mind at ease when leaving our fur baby! We'll see you again soon!

Our 11 month old puppy (toy golden doodle) enjoyed staying with Jon's family. they sent us a couple of pictures everyday while we were gone. They took him to the park (thank you!) had him to play with other dogs. Very satisfied service.
The entire process with Jonathan from the initial contact to the meet and greet to the actual pet sitting was exceptionally good. My pet (a 9 year old Shih Tzu) was taken care of by an extremely pet friendly family. I will be using Jonathan again for further pet sitting and/or overnight stays.

Jonathan was a lifesaver! I thought I had arrangements for my dog with another sitter and due to a misunderstanding...I didn't, which I found out a few hours before I was to drop her off. I got back on DogVacay and found Jonathan who agreed to take her that evening! My dog fit in with their family and dog just fine and I will use him again.

Lucy had another awesome stay. Thanks to all the family Lucy feels at home. This is a place with lots of love for their guests!
Jonathan and his family welcomed our Jessie into their home and embraced her as one of their own. Maybe even a little more spoiled than at home...

Loved receiving pictures of her making herself right at home and enjoying her visit. Made me (Mom) feel comfortable about leaving her. They are a great dog family!

Nice people. Great experience. Jonathan and family took good care of Bailey. They even took her to my vet when she developed a cyst / infection in her paw. I will definitely use them again.
Jonathan and his family were terrific! The pictures we received of our two dogs made us feel so good because we could see how happy they were. This family is warm and caring and we highly recommend them, so do our dogs!
Jonathan and family were great host to our dogs. Jonathan made everything simple, which is exactly what you want when going out of town. I highly recommend their services.
Hudson had a wonderful stay. Jonathan and his family were so friendly. They took him to the park and sent pictures to update us. We would definitely like for Hudson to visit them again.
Lucy's favorite family!!
Koda loved her stay with the Bensons and we loved knowing she was taking long walks, playing fetch at the park, and getting snuggles and love while we were gone!! Seeing her having fun in the daily photos, helped us enjoy our vacation by reassuring us that she was enjoying hers!! We will most definitely book again!

Lucy had a blast as usual!! I fear one day when I come to pick her up she may hide under the bed when she sees me!! She loves this family!!
Our dog, Ace, absolutely loves going to Johnathan's house. We get pictures of him daily and he gets many trips to the dog park. We find great comfort knowing is so well taken care of while we are away.
Lucy loves this family. I have no worries knowing Lucy is being treated like family when she stays at the Bensons!!
Mika was so happy with Jonathan's sweet family! I am so relived that I found them. They treated her as family and took her to dog parks all weekend, and it looks like she really had the best time. I am so thankful for all the pics they sent me, it was really fun to know that my dog was having a great time while I was gone. Oh, and their dog is the sweetest... (-:

Lucy loves Dex and his family!! She always has a great vacay and sleeps for at least a day when she gets home!!
Fantastic, my dog was happy and came home very well adjusted, no anxiety. The pictures I received daily were awesome. Great place and family to leave you dog with if you ever have to be away. Thanks for taking care of young dog.
Jonathan and his family are wonderful hosts. We know our pup is lovingly cared for while we are out of town. Definitely recommend this host.
Jonathan and his family were wonderful to our sweet Tango and loved him like he was their own. He even had an upset stomach while at their home and they took such amazing care of him while we were away. They send daily updates and photos. We will definitely use Jonathan again.

Enzo stayed with Jonathan and family during the Labor Day weekend from Friday morning to Monday morning .

The moment we stepped in I knew Enzo was comfortable with the family and Dex. His separation anxiety was not too terrible when we were leaving which was a great relief.

Jonathan took Enzo to walks every day and to dog park. I also received daily pictures and updates, without me asking, which was wonderful.

On the day of Enzo's pickup he seemed a little dull and we attributed it to just being in a new place. After we got home we noticed he was acting withdrawn and up on checking saw 2 bite marks : one on the left ear and another on the eye.

In Jonathan's dense the bite marks were not in Sunday's pictures , so our guess was something happened Sunday night or early Monday morning.

We texted Jonathan about the issue and he called us immediately to apologize and was genuinely concerned over this incident.

Apart for this unfortunate incident we would've rated Enzo's stay as 5 star.

Enzo however took a couple of days to heal and is back to his active self again.

Dog Vacay team was also very prompt in giving us a call to check on Enzo.

I have mixed feelings about letting Enzo stay with the host again.

Jonathan & family are great sitters! Both our dogs love theme and their home!
Love this family!! They take great care of my Lucy.
I'm pretty sure if Lucy could talk she would say she wants to live with Jonathan and his family. She had a blast as usual!!
They were very helpful and accommodating in coordinating drop off and pick up! I picked up a happy, tired dog who I know was loved on and well taken care of!
I couldn't have been more satisfied. Jonathan was a great guy and really seemed to care about my dogs needs. I'd consider both of my dogs high maintenance and he was more than willing to accommodate. This was the first time my wife and I have been comfortable leaving our dogs with anyone. We will definitely use Jonathan in the future. He kept us updated and even sent pics which was nice. I have a hyper over socialized 90lb Old English Bulldog and a lazy 50lb English Bulldog which required daily eye drops. Our fur-babies mean the world to us and I knew they were in great hands. Jonathan was willing to take them to the dog park if we had wanted. His house was very nice and dog friendly. His kids even seemed passionate about taking care of the dogs. Just a perfect fit for us in every way. Thank you for everything Jonathan. I didn't worry for 1 second while they were with you and that meant the world to us while on a honeymoon.

My dog was very excited when we arrived at Jonathan's which confirmed for me how much she enjoyed her first stay with them. They are kind and hospitable to both me and my dog.
Lucy had a great time with Dex and his family!! I am able to enjoy my time away with peace of mind knowing Lucy will be spoiled while I'm away. I will definitely use the Benson family in the future.
Once again Rascal had a great time at Jonathan's. They took him to the dog park and sent a lot of pictures which I love because I know Rascal is having a great time!!
Rascal had a great time with the host family and they made him feel very comfortable. We are using them again next weekend!
Johnathan and his family took great care our dog Buddy, he seemed really happy in all the photos they sent us. They kept us updated and we will definitely keep Buddy with them next time we go on vacation.
We had a meet and greet with Jonathan and Dexter prior to Gracie's overnight stay. Everything went well and his two daughters gave Gracie lots of hugs. She had a good overnight, visited the dog park and pictures were sent to us to keep us updated which we enjoyed. She was in good hands and we would schedule other stays in the future.

This was my first time using Dog Vacay and I will definitely use Jonathan again! My dog was cared for and loved on as I had hoped.
Jonathan and his family are the best. If you have to leave your dog this is the way to go. This was our second time leaving Sam with Jonathan and we will definitely use them again.
I needed a sitter at the last minute for my dog. Jonathan and his family took him in and they were awesome! They took him to the dog park and sent me many pictures during his stay. I was so relieved and my dog seemed to have a great time! If the need arises again i won't hesitate to call the service for Jonathan again!

Awesome. Jonathon sent daily pics of my dogs. My pup had so much fun with their pup. Going to use them again next week.
Jonathan and his family were fabulous. We have 2 large dogs. They were willing and able to take care of them for a full week. They were very accommodating and established pick up and drop off times that were convenient for us. Our dogs are used to going to the park every day. Jonathan and family made sure our girls got dog park time every day, weather permitting. We were even sent pictures each day of them at the park playing and having fun. We will definitely hire the 'B's' again.
The Dogvacay concierge was also very friendly and professional, when I called to advise that we cut our vacation one day shorter than originally scheduled. They willingly refunded one day of our stay.

Lucy had a blast as usual!! She LOVES Dex and his family. She is tired and very sleepy when she gets home from all the playing!!
Jonathan and his family have taken wonderful care of our Cooper once again. Everything went smoothly, and daily pictures and updates made it easy to keep up with our "baby."
Lucy had a blast. Dex was a perfect host/playmate for her. She has lots of energy and was able to let it out with this family. They loved her and spoiled her and I can honestly say Lucy was not ready to go home. Lucy wants to go back ASAP!!
Jonathan and family treated our dog like their own. They took her to the dog park many times and sent pictures of her throughout her weeklong visit. We felt so comfortable knowing Belle was having a great time while we were gone.
Cinnabon had a great time with Jonathan and his sweet family including Dexter! They even let Cinnabon sleep with them the first night! I'm sure he thought, "Wow! What an awesome vacation!!"
My experience goes way beyond "poor" more like animal cruelty. Hired Jonathan to let my dogs out at noon and feed them around 5-5:30 p.m.. My roommate came home early to find that that Jonathan had not feed my dogs (this was at 8:30 at night). Once I contacted him (left a message) he shows up at my home at 9 o'clock at night to feed my dogs. My dogs had no water and no food for more than 9 hours. To me...this is animal cruelty! After leaving this feedback, I am cancelling my subscription to this website because they have decided to allow Jonathan to keep mistreating animals. I thoughts he took good care of my dogs back in November; however, after this incident...not sure he did? Oh, by the way, my dogs are age 14 and 18 year old.

I was so lucky to have found Jonathan and his family. It was much easier to travel knowing that my dog would be with such a wonderful dog loving family!

Dexter is a great host dog and he and Oliver got along great for the weekend! I received regular updates and pictures of Oliver which was nice while I was away and missed him. I highly recommend this awesome family!

Jonathan and his family were wonderful with our Sam. I highly recommend and will definitely use them again. Vacations are much better when you know your pet is well cared for.
I was so fortunate to have found Jonathan! My boys were so well taken care of and that was such a relief. Highly recommend!!
Awesome! Samantha loved their dog Dexter and had a great time playing with him. She also managed to cajole her way into their daughter's beds, which really made her feel at home. This is a very nice family who will love your dog like their own. Couldn't be happier! Thanks!

Louie had a great time at Jonathan's house and I think he got more love and care than he gets at home! Trip to a dog park, pictures of his happy faceā€¦it went just great. And Dexter is a great host too! Available for play if Louie so desired. :)

Definitely recommend highly and will use again soon. Thank you Jonathan, Ashley, your lovely girls and most of all Dexter for sharing your awesome family with Louie.

Jonathan was a Fantastic Host! Our boys were well taken care of. They were taken to the dog park twice. Jonathan sent us periodic check ups with pictures. They had so much fun they just came home and laid by the fire. We will definitely use Jonathan again.

So, so happy with the whole family, they took great care of my "baby" and kept me updated via e-mails and daily pictures. Will definitely have my dog stay there again!
We left our 2 dogs for 8 days with Jonathan and his family, and I think our dogs had more fun on vacation than we did. We received lots of pictures of the dogs having fun at home, and the dog park, and we knew they were in good hands. It's such a relief to find a good home for the dogs while we are away, and would recommend Jonathan everytime.

Jonathan and his family were excellent with my dog. My dog was happy, clean and non stressed when we picked him up. Jonathan also answered our text messages and sent us pictures of our dog while we were away. We will definitely use Jonathan again.
