About Mary & Ashley

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and thank you for considering us to care for your much loved pup. Please read below before making a reservation.

Our Dog Gorgeous Resort is quaint and inviting. While you are away, your dog’s vacation will be a home setting. All our guest dogs will receive lots of love and playtime while staying with us. Our resident dogs, Aya and Ru are great activity coordinators. Giving the right amount of play, chase, tug-o-war, keep-away, hillside safaris, relaxing, and sleeping in the sun. Whatever your dog desires. They have full access to the house and a large back yard with a hill to run up and down.

We love and welcome all dog breeds. We welcome our new guest dogs to first meet and greet with Aya and Ru, our resident gentle giants.

Please note a meet and greet is available by scheduled appointments only.
We usually meet at the Historic Town Center Park in San Juan Capistrano.

A tour of the house can be the same day if copies of current vaccinations are available prior to the meeting. Otherwise, a tour of the house is by next available appointment and not on the day of drop offs.

Maintaining a safe, relaxing, and stress-free environment for all of our guest pups is our priority. We do not leave our guest dogs unattended while they are in our care. A minimum of 3 nights is required. All vaccination records must be verified prior to confirming reservation.

Special attention is needed for dogs with extra hormones resulting in high temperament and behaviors (extra cleanup from excessive marking, destructive behavior, conflicts with other guests, etc.) Please be aware that additional fees might be required after your instant booking confirmation reservation is finalized with DogVacay.

First time I was able to relax on my vacation. Mary and Ashley communicated and connected with my dog beautifully and met all his needs. Very happy and positive home and I picked up my very happy and content dog.
Two thumbs up for Mary and Ashley!!! We are very protective our our fur baby and have never had him boarded as we have taken him on all our vacation or left him with grandma. Unfortunately, this trip we could not take him along. Mary and Ashley, along with their fur babies and doggie guests, took excellent care of Koda. We got daily pictures of him in various activities, which our kids loved seeing. He looked very content and happy. After being home for a short time, he whined a bit from missing his new friends. We are happy to know that we now have a place to take our baby for the next vacation. We highly recommend them.
Our dog Tucker stayed with Mary and Ashley for four days this past week. It was our first time ever boarding him and he's almost 12 years old.

Not only were they professional from first contact, they were also like family. Their dogs are their children and yours will be too, in the most loving of ways. Their two dogs can be very intimidating upon first sight, yet they're so sweet and incredibly well trained that there was no hesitation at all after being around them for a few minutes. They're just giant, lovable puppies.

An added bonus was Mary texted pictures a few times a day of Tucker's activities. They were so beautiful she should really be a professional photographer!

Give them a try, you'll be so glad you did.
Mary and Ashley at Dog Gorgeous were amazing hosts to our 6 month old French Bulldog Frankie! We always felt Frankie was in good hands and they cared form him like one of their own. We received pics throughout Frankie's 4-night stay while we were gone which gave us piece of mind that he was in good hands.
Mary and Ashley - and their dogs - provided a loving, warm and caring home for our dog. We enjoyed receiving the daily updates and pictures! We will definitely have our dog stay with them in the future!!
We needed someone in a nearby location to watch our 10-month old chocolate lab while we group camped at San Onofre. Mary and Ashley were available and we are so glad that they were!

Bodie gets along with everybody, but you rarely know what to expect in these situations. They made him feel welcome and a special part of their family for a few days. The host dogs are super sweet and playful.

A major plus was the smart phone "postcards" that we received throughout his stay.

If we travel back into the area, we will certainly be in touch again...
Ashley, Mary and their to awesome dogs Ru and Aya are fantastic hosts. My two dogs Blake and Cali had a sleep over and the time of their life. They are very caring and really went out of their way to make sure my babies were happy. I received several texts with pictures showing me the great time my dogs were having. It was a fantastic feeling knowing my pets were being taken care of and loved. Ru and Aya are so gentle and cute. I am sure my dogs can not wait to visit again! Thank you so much for making me feel so confident in knowing that Blake and Cali were in great hands!

We gets lots of pics and he comes home pooped because he had so much fun with the house and other guest dog/s!! Perfect dog vacay for our pup!
Fantastic all the way around! Communication and photos were provided throughout the stay. Coordinating drop off and pick up was easy. We were given full confidence from start to finish and we will be back. Thanks Mary and Ashley!
Mary and Ashley took excellent care of our dog Kingston for the two days we were gone. Throughout our trip we got pictures of him having fun, eating, playing, running in their backyard, and enjoying the company of the other dogs in their care. When we picked him up I felt like he was more well behaved than when we dropped him off. They definitely loved him well, and I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to call them again for boarding or training services..
Our Australian Shepherd was in good hands. We enjoyed a lots of updates and pictures sent by Mary. Thanks and see you again PG
Another great stay with Mary and her pups! She is fantastic with sending photos, caring and I trust her 100% that my dog is safe and in good hands!
Mary was awesome with our pup. We received many pictures and updates. Our pup had a ton of fun with her dogs. We'd recommend her and are looking forward to our next DogVacay w/ Mary.
Mary was amazing! This was our first time using dogvacay- needless to say, our pup had a blast. She sent daily pictures and it made me feel so at ease knowing that our dog was playing with his new friends and had less anxiety than staying at a larger boarding facility. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Mary!!
