I hardly ever write reviews but I had to take the time to write this one! I was very anxious to board my 11 month old Wheaten terrier while we were on vacation during the week of Thanksgiving. I was so lucky to come across this site and Peter and Diana! I had a wonderful meet and greet with them at their lovely home and their dogs. But I was still anxious - I read the reviews over and over to calm my nerves from having to part with her for so many days. But once I dropped her off an received all the great updates and pictures, I started to relax and knew I made a great decision. If you are anxious like I was, please do not worry and book your stay immediately. You will not regret it. I will never leave my baby anywhere else from now on...

We needed a dog sitter on short notice. They came to our aid and we had no worries since Maggie loves to go to their house. It is great knowing she is happy when we are not with her.
Diana and Peter took really great care of Teddy. We got tons of pictures and videos and constant update. He really enjoyed all the attention and being able to play with their dogs and in their backyard. They went above and beyond and dropped off his crate to our home afterwards. We'll be using them again for our next trip. Thanks!!

My little pup LOVES her visits! It's an all-day play date, with lots of love and attention. Thank you for treating Charlie as your own!
Our experience was above expectation. We found Peter & Diana when a last minute business trip came up & our usual sitter was not available. We read their reviews & saw how many repeat bookings they had & were very impressed. We contacted them to schedule a meet & greet before booking. We were impressed with their welcoming, the property, their dogs, their interaction with our dog & their policies for activities with the dogs they watch. We worried that we had a chocolate lab that needed a lot of attention but they assured us that their puppies too are a high energy breed that that also requires the attention & activity; their reviews also confirmed that many high energy breeds have been taken care of there & come home tired out. We decided to book with them after the meet & greet. The day we dropped Bella off, my fiancé didn't even make it home before our first update came through. Bella was doing great & had made new friends. The updates continued to come through throughout our vacation. It is a day later of u being home & Bella is still resting hard after her vacation! We can't thank Peter & Diana enough for caring for our baby!

Absolutely 5 STARS!!!! Dyana & Peter were just what we were looking for in providing our dog, Stanley, a comfortable and loving place to stay when we needed to be away. Coming from out of state and not knowing the area, we had no choice but to board Stanley at a few kennels before finding Dyana & Peter. Never having stayed at a kennel, Stanley did not do well and was extremely stressed after his stays. We were devastated, and did not know what to do until we came across DogVacay & found Dyana & Peter. They treat Stanley as if he were their own dog with lots of love, play (they have a big fenced in yard for lots of play time too), and attention. There is no doubt they are big time dog lovers!!! They were also excellent in providing texts and pics and videos throughout Stanley's stay. I have no doubt Stanley is taken care of extremely well when staying with Dyana & Peter. I didn't worry for one second while Stanley boarded with them for three nights. It was such a relief!!! Thank you so much Dyana & Peter!! You have made one aspect of our move a lot less stressful! And I'm sure Stanley can't wait to stay with you again and again and again!!!!

Couldn't ask for better care!! Don't even hesitate a second for your dog...
Peter and Diana are the very best. Our puppy Remy simply LOVES spending time with them and their wonderful dogs Bolt and Blaze. We'd highly recommend them to anyone and will certainly return whenever we need boarding/daycare services!
My Leonberger had the best time with Peter and his family. Their two dogs were wonderful, fun loving and playful and welcomed my dog into the pack without issue. Their yard is completely fenced and has a cleared space as well as a wooded area so the dogs could run freely and have fun. When I picked my dog up after a week's stay, I could tell by her disposition that she was well loved and cared for while she was there. I would not hesitate to leave my dog with them and will bring her back for a playdate.

Dyana and Peter are the best! They truly went above and beyond for my two dogs and treated them like their own pets. While away we received multiple pictures, videos, and updates which made us feel reassured our fur-babies were safe and having a blast. Their large backyard will guarantee one happy and tired puppy! We highly recommend the care and love Dyana and Pete provide.

We own a German Shorthair Pointer who requires a lot of outdoor stimulation and exercise. We did a meet and greet with Peter and Diane and were very pleased with the accommodations they offer. Within 2 minutes our boy was swimming in their pool! We were very happy to see the owners having two Vizsla dogs who have the same energy level as our boy! They have a huge back yard with grass and woods

We arranged for our dog to stay with Peter and Diane for one week and were very pleased. They sent us pictures and video, morning, noon and night, every day until we arrived to pick him up. We can say with certainty that we will have our boy stay with Peter and Diane again and highly recommend you utilizing their service for your pet. Your pet will get the attention he/she needs without the stress of a kennel. We are very happy! Thank you and will look forward to having Mack visit again.

Be well,

Mark and family.

We have had the most wonderful experiences with Peter and his family. They are so accommodating and loving with our dog. She is always super happy and exhausted after her visits there!! Highly recommend!
Peter & Diana ARE AMAZING! I trust them wholeheartedly with our Goldendoodle's care and well being. They are the warmest and friendliness family people who will just love and care for your dog as you would yourself. Their home is beautiful and your fur baby will love the exercise they will get from their enormous fully fenced in property. I wouldwholeheartedlydrecommend them ( and I am not eaiest to please)

This was our first time using DogVacay and we were thrilled with our experience! Diana and Peter were gracious about meeting us beforehand and a brief trial to ensure Louie and their great dogs would be comfortable.

Louie was lovingly welcomed into their family for 10 days. We received daily texts and photos of Louie with their family and playing with other dogs and it gave us continual peace of mind about his care and well-being during our vacation.

He clearly became part of their family from hanging out under their desks and on the couch/bed, pool time, playing with their kids and dogs Bolt and Blaze, and other visiting DogVacay dogs -- he had lots of attention, love and cuddles!

They have a large, beautiful property with a pool open to dogs, and lots of grass and woods to explore.

We're already planning future vacations for Louie to go back!

Fantastic stay
Our dog had the most wonderful time with Peter!! They were very accommodating when our dropoff time changed. Diana and Peter were so thoughtful and sent me updates and photos of Pixie several times a day! She was completely exhausted the next day! would highly recommend using Peter to anyone on the area!

It was my first time leaving my dog with anyone. I didn't have a chance to meet them beforehand. Well, I couldn't have had a better experience. I was met outside when I arrived. And I felt at ease instantly. I received pictures throughout the day of my baby girl having a wonderful time. I was so happy. She was exhausted when I picked her up. She was even tired the next day. She definitely got her share of exercise.
I've already booked her stay for another day next week. And am planning for an extended stay in the very near future.
I'm so happy that I've found a family that truly loves dogs and will care for my dear girl when I'm away.
I can't say enough.

We are so happy to have found this family who took such great care of our lab this past week while we were at the beach. I'm always anxious to leave her (as we're rarely on vacation without her), but after her first dogvacay here, I will definitely be booking with them again next time we need a sitter! It is hard to find someone who understand the needs of a high energy dog and our very active and playful lab was very well taken care of! I really appreciated all the texts and videos throughout the day and the love and attention Callie received. The frequent communication and photos helped put my mind at ease and enjoy our vacation knowing Callie was in good hands with a dog loving family. Callie had her own vacation, spending her days swimming in the pool and getting spoiled on the furniture after an active day with all her new friends! The resident dogs were great companions for our lab and seemed to help her with the separation anxiety from us! Thank you for taking such good care of our Callie-we are very picky when it comes to dog sitters and could not have been happier.

Our goofy labs Sonny and Brooklyn loved being with Peter and Diana. It's a terrific safe, clean and large area for the dogs. We are so happy to have found them. We will be going to Italy for 2 weeks and September and now, after finding Peter and his family, we will be able to enjoy the vacation knowing that our pups will be happy and loved! We would recommend them over and over. Just a terrific experience! Thank you!

Riley had a great day with your family. Thank you so much for taking such great care of him and keeping in touch with us.
Our 12 year old Choc. Lab had a great stay with Peter & his family. They sent my nervous wife pictures every day & she even attended a party. Highly recommended
Peter and his family took amazing care of our Boston Terrier, Roxie, while we were at a nearby wedding. They checked in several times a day with photos and updates -- to be honest, we weren't sure Roxie would want to come home after the blast she had! I'd definitely recommend Peter to any dog owner.

Awesome stay for our Pippi! She was pampered, loved, and very well cared for. We would highly recommend these friendly, helpful pet sitters.
Our dog had SUCH a great time. He was treated as if he was part of their family. It was our first time having to leave him with someone we didn't know, and it was such a positive experience! We were all so happy.
Our little frenchie was warmly welcomed into Peter S.' home. It was great to have a park-like property to run around and have fun in with her 2 new playmates!
Peter and Diana are the BEST! They took care of our 4 month old puppy Remy so dearly and sincerely and treated her as a part of their family. Playing with Blaze and Bolt all day for several days was such a great learning experience for Remy's socialization and we can't thank the family enough. We'll definitely return to them in future!

This was a wonderful stay! Peter and Deana have a great yard and their dogs played so well with my Cooper. I will absolutely use them again! I received pictures and updates. Home away from home. You guts are great :)
Thank you Peter and Dyana for taking such good care of Shelby. You really made her part of the family and showed her lots of love. Shelby had a ball with the dogs! Highly recommend :)
Peter and Diana did a fantastic job of taking care of my Gigi! We have left her in their care twice and I can not say enough good things about them. They send us updates every day with pictures and videos and give her plenty of exercise and cuddle time. Needless to say, by the end of her stay, Gigi doesn't want to leave and comes home depressed - that says it all! I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Last minute notice. Again took terrific care of Coco!
Peter and Diana were great while my dog was there. We had a wonderful meet and greet, their place was very clean and well suited for dogs who like to run in the backyard. During my dog's stay, they texted me pictures all throughout the days. I am already booking again!

I could not be happier. Our Ruby had a great weekend with Peter and Diana. They treated her like one of the family. Ruby loved Bolt and Blaze. When we picked her up, the dogs looked like they were all in the same litter. It was such a relief knowing that not only was Ruby taken care of, but her unique vizsla traits were loved.

Peter and Diana did a fantastic job taking care of our high energy Vizsla. Lola had an amazing time, and got along very well with Bolt and Blaze. The huge yard is perfect for dogs to run and play, and the house is very dog friendly as well. Peter and Diana are caring, friendly, and provided lots of updates. Highly recommend!

I left my 3 year old shih poo,Coco, with Peter and his family. They have a lovely home with a huge backyard. They are extremely nice people and took amazing care of him. Coco is timid and had no problem with both their dogs. I was amazed at all the updates I received and could really tell that they treated my pup like their own. Super experience and I would highly recommend based on my experience! Coco came home happy and playful and tired.

Maya and Ollie had a great time with Peter and Diana and their family! They have 2 active dogs of their own so they really understand how to handle a medium to larger dog that requires attention. The dogs all had a great time playing together in their giant fenced yard and all the humans gave my pups tons of love. I felt they were safe and well cared for and definitely recommend Peter and family. They also sent pictures every day which makes us crazy dog people feel better when away from our dogs!

Peter and Diana were awesome. Our dog loves to run and cuddle - they aced it all. Riley loved to run with their dogs. He was torn to leave. Now we have to do day care too :) thanks you guys Sue and Andy
Sammi had a large backyard and wonderful canine friends. I think she would rather have stayed with her new friends. She really did great.
I will like to thank Peter and Diana for the excellent job they did taking care Maya this week. Diana use to txt me every day to give me update of Maya. Thank You again....... Delgado Families
Cooper thoroughly enjoyed his visit with Peter and Deanna and Blaze and Bolt! The dogs kept him so well exercised! They were terrific hosts and sent me lots of photos and kept me updated on what Cooper was up to. His favorite spot was the carpet by their kitchen sink...warm and cozy. He definitely made himself right at home. Peter and Deanna were very professional and knowledgable about having dogs in their home and clearly gave Cooper lots of attention. Their property is just perfect for an active dog like Cooper. He came home relaxed, happy and refreshed. I would gladly use them again!

Peter and family bailed me out again, last minute, and Andre reaped the benefits. Regular pictures, commentary and videos helped keep my mind at ease duration nag this vacation. They live 30 miles from me and there are more than a dozen other spots I could take Andre. They were so good to him and welcomed him into their home and routine, the 30 minute drive is secondary to how great they are with me and Andre. Cannot say enough good things about how well they communicate and care for my pup!

Peter, Bolt and Blaze were gracious, last minute Thanksgiving hosts for Andre. Pinched for time, they immediately accepted my request and allowed me to spend some time with them when Andre and I arrived. Texts, pictures and videos were regular and plenty as all the pups played, ate, ran and jockeyed for prime resting real estate. They treated Andre as well, and likely better, as I do! So relieved and thankful for their care, attention and sharing their dog friendly home with Andre. Will 100% book again!

Finn had another fun-filled weekend! Thanks for taking such good care of him.
Diana and Peter took wonderful care of our dog, Finn. You can tell that they really enjoy hosting and having your dog play with theirs. The house and backyard are super dog-friendly and Finn had a wonderful time being able to run around freely. Blaze and Bolt were great companions for our high energy dog. Diana and Peter were also very accommodating with the drop-off and pickup. We wouldn't hesitate to leave Finn with them again. Thanks for a great stay!

My 2 dogs had a fabulous weekend, I'm pretty sure they didn't want to leave their vacay to come home! I was new to the site and in a last min jam- thanks to Peter and his wife the planning couldn't have been simpler!
The Sterns insured that Red was totally taken care of. Their two dogs, Blaze and Bolt, were great companions for Red. I received text and photos to keep me at ease. Their property is well equipped to handle any dog. I will definitely use them in the future.

Peter & Diana are amazing people. We are so grateful that we found them. They take better care of our dog than we do!
I could not be more grateful to have found such an amazing place for my pup Sampson to vacation while I was away on mine! The home, the family (furry ones too), the environment, the yard...on and on were perfect. I had never left my babe for more than a couple days so I was super anxious about two weeks. That anxiety was eased as Diana and Peter sent me frequent updates and photos of the canine kids, and were ALWAYS super responsive. Sampson definitely loved his time with his new buds Blaze and Bolt and he will no doubt be back soon!
In conclusion, Diana and Peter are rockstars!

Words can't describe how grateful and lucky we were to have Diana and Peter take care of our boy during our last vacation. They were very quick replying to all my messages, arranging meet n greet, and working with our vacation schedule for drop off and pickup. We received tons of pictures, videos, emails keeping us posted on how our boy was doing, which was a big relief in knowing he was loved and well taking care. Their kids were also amazing with him and I am sure our boy is looking forward to our next vacation and stay with Blaze n Bolt.

Awesome host family! Our dog had such a wonderful experience with Peter and his family that I am just so grateful! They cared for our dog, Chase, better than we do - and I'm not kidding. So much love, attention, treats, even a homemade Sunday night dinner....I was really afraid he wouldn't want to come home. Chase is a very active Vizsla and I was worried that not every family could 'handle' him. Peter has 2 wonderful Vizslas at home and knew just what he was getting. They have a beautiful big back yard and the dogs played together and had a wonderful time burning off all of that energy. They kept us updated daily with photos and videos of the dogs playing and family time cuddling with Chase on the couch. I really can't say enough about what a terrific experience it was.

Mason loved his stay, as always! Thank you, Mason's Mommy
Discovering Peter and Diana along with the DogVacay sight was like a gift. Peter responded to my very last minute inquiry promptly and professionally. We arranged for a meet and greet and the physical and emotional environment was exactly what we were looking for in a happy , home away from home for Bella, our very active vizsla. Our expectations were not just met - they were exceeded. Along with the nicest, warmest, most caring couple you could ever possibly meet ( and their wonderful pup Blaze) we most valued the enormous, safe backyard with plenty of space and freedom for our dog roam outdoors. Additionally, Bella was walked and played with regularly. She was made to feel like part of a family. Indoor living conditions were immaculate and cozy. Peter and Diana are great communicators and kept our minds at ease by posting frequent pics and videos of our dogs at play and rest and sending us informative texts. I recommend this couple highly if your dog needs a surrogate home while you are away.
