About Gwenn & Jeff

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a dog-loving family-Mom, Dad & 11 year old daughter. Mom & Dad grew up with dogs & have many years of experience.

Let's discuss in advance any medications we need to administer. We have plenty of experience with pills, topical medications, eye & ear drops & injections if needed. Many senior guests stay here & we are happy to work with their issues-loss of sight, hearing, mobility, incontinence. We have also had a guest dog with Megaesophagus who uses a Bailey chair for feeding. ***We care for Cats in your home.

****A note about the calendar: Even though we may show as "booked" on our calendar for the dates you need, please inquire anyway. It might just be that dogs are leaving that day & we may be able to still accommodate you-please check with us.

As this was our first visit with Gwenn & Jeff they readily agreed to do a meet and greet a few days prior to our one day sitting. We were totally satisfied with the attentiveness and the care provided and will be booking them for future engagements. Just referred one of our friends to them as well.

As always, Gwenn and Jeff took excellent care of Lola and Charlie. They treated them with a lot of love and kindness.
Gwenn & Jeff C were amazing! We knew to expect that our dog would be well cared for - due to all the great reviews we read. But, they truly do go above and beyond. We received 17 photos and many messages of our pup during the 3 days, so we were well assured that everything was wonderful. Our dog also bonded with their daughter, so it was very much a loving family experience for him. We simply could not imagine a better place for him when we can't have him with us.

I recently moved to the area and one of my neighbors had recommended Gwenn and Jeff to watch my dog when I went out of town. I couldn't have been happier with the whole experience!! I've used other people on Dogvacay but hands down Gwenn created the best experience I've ever had! She knows how to introduce dogs into her home so they feel comfortable, she sends updates and photos while you're gone and even sent me a thank you note. Gwenn has raised the bar for me to have anyone else watch my dog!! Thank you so much!

Abby had another great Vacay with Gwenn, Jeff, Amber and Goldie! It's always nice to know that Abby is safe and happy when we are away.
Another great visit! Maggie changed up her "usual" routine at Gwen's house, but they adapted and made sure she was comfortable as always.
This family took very good care of our furry family member - Maggie. We would definitely place her with them in the future. She had a great time during her vacation at their home.
Great experience for our 10 year old Golden Retriever Maddie! Gwenn sent plenty of pictures and updates while our time away on a cruise. She felt right at home which was a comfort to us. Gwenn administered her medicine and vitamin daily and also taught her to walk with a harness. We will definitely be using their service again! Thank you so much ??

We absolutely loved the care Gwenn and Jeff provided for our golden retriever. The frequent updates and pictures that we received from them showed that our dog was having a blast with there dog Goldie. The updates also made us feel at ease so we could enjoy our Vacation knowing that our dog was in good care. We highly recommend them and will be back.

Another great visit with our 3 year old Yellow Lab and 9 month old Maltipoo. They're the best. Jason & Debra A
My 2 dogs stayed with Gwenn & Jeff for 2 days when we traveled from Florida's east coast to Ft Myers to escape hurricane Matthew! We were very fortunate to find them at the last minute and I couldn't have been more pleased with their care of my girls. They were happy and well cared for and were welcomed in Gwenn's daughter's bed for the night - a real treat! Gwenn sent several pictures throughout the day so I could see them, as is customary with Dog Vacay hosts, so I was totally at ease with them being with Gwenn. When we picked them up, they greeted us as if we'd only left them for an hour, no big deal, so I know they were not stressed at all. It was an excellent experience!

Jo just loves going to "Doggie Camp"! As soon as she arrives, she jumps into Gwenn's arms
Our second Dog Vacay experience with Gwenn & Jeff! 5 day stay for our Lexie and Max. These folks are the best, and never a worry!!
Several photos, and updates were sent daily, showing our dogs having a blast while on vacation!
It was very obvious Max and Lexie got plenty of play time with a couple other Dog Vacay dogs, because they slept for a day or two after getting back home!

Thanks again Gwenn, Jeff and Amber for taking great care of Bosco and Bode! It is so nice to have a place for them to go for a weekend and not worry. They were happy and very tired when we picked them up. Thanks!! Chelle
I recently took my cockapoo Reagan to Gwenn and Jeff. I dropped her off and she ran inside! No looking back! She was so happy to be there! Gwenn and Jeff and their sweet daughter always take excellent care of Reagan! She loves spending time there and they always do a wonderful job. They do a great job of communicating with us and always send great pictures! I recommend them highly.

Perfect place for our puppy to stay. The interaction with other dogs was very beneficial to our Cockapoo. The Cohen family treated Jo as their own.
We couldn't have asked for a better place for our 8 month old Cockapoo Josephine (Jo) to stay for 16 days. We received daily messages and pictures. We could see she was having a blast at her "summer camp". :)
We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing she was being taken great care of!

This was Gracie's longest stay with Gwenn, Jeff, and Amber. She did great and had a variety of playmates during the stay. The daily updates and pictures really help. We are always confident that Gracie is in good hands and getting plenty of attention while we are away.

Another great stay for the dogs at Gwen and Jeff's! We love getting the updates and pictures and it is nice to go away and not have to worry about them. Thanks again to Amber for letting them sleep on your bed. We will be back again! Chelle
Gwen was very nice and made us feel comfortable leaving our sweet Griffey with her and her family.
This is the second time visiting with Gwenn and family but the first time the dogs have spent the night at someones house. The dogs were lucky enough to sleep with their daughter in her bed. I was told that they did good and were happy and very tired when I picked them up. I appreciate the pictures and updates during the day. We will definitely be back again!!

Thank you Gwenn and family!!

This was our first time using a private pet sitter for our dog Coolie. (He is a 65lb 7year old Boxer) We usually board him at a large commercial facility, but they had no availability on short notice. Gwenn was awesome in caring for Coolie. We received updates and pictures of Coolie every day throughout his stay at her house. I loved the fact that Coolie was in a private setting with only a few other dogs. He was not stuck in a cage and had free range of her house, just as he has at his own home. Staying with Gwenn was a lot less noisy than the typical kennel and less stressful for the both of us. Gwenn was very responsive to all questions both before and after Coolies stay. Overall a great experience for the both of us and was worth the extra money as compared to our usual boarding facility. I will use Gwenn again in the future.

Best Pet Sitters Ever!!! Gwenn & Jeff went above and beyond in taking care of our every need with our two dogs, even bringing them home close to our arrival time & settled them in!! We have a 10 year old Bichon and 12 week old new Morkie puppy. Our 3lb "Ace" required a lot of work as a new pup and Gwenn welcomed our little boy with open arms and reassured us daily with great pictures and progress reports. Our dogs were very happy, they ate, made friends, went on walks and knew they were loved! We highly trust & recommend Gwenn and Jeff and their daughter who gave us complete peace of mind when leaving our Pups! ❤️

This was the first time we had ever used a dog sitter and definitely chose the perfect family. They were very kind and loving to our babies, Lola and Charlie, during there 4 night 5 day stay. Now we can take trips and know our babies are happy. We wouldn't consider leaving them anywhere else. Appreciated the updates and pictures.
Thank you. Bob and Shirley Rentz

Our two girls had a great stay. They played alot and when they got home they slept for 2 days they had so much fun. Thanks Gwen and Jeff for taking such good care of the girls and for sending us pictures during their stay. See you again soon!
Sunny had another awesome weekend visit. Came home exhausted after all the fun with the other dogs. Got a note or picture every 2-3 hours. Thanks again. Jason & Debra
Our dogs get so excited to go spend with the day with Gwen and her family! They feel just like they're at home getting to relax. They love getting to meet lots of different dogs at their home.
Very patient and kind. One of our pups was a rescue and he did great with these guys ...
I can't say enough good things about Gwenn, Jeff and Amber. They are the best. My Morgan loves being there and I receive lots of pictures and messages from Gwenn showing how much he loves being there and how much love he receives from them. He and Goldie are great friends , as well as he and Amber. They all spoil him.
So blessed to have them for my Morgie.

I was very impressed with these dogsitters!
Everytime we are out out town, this is our baby's home away from home. He loves it there. I think he is in depression for a day or so when he is back home because he misses of all the love & attention he gets from this family.
Another fantastic stay with Gwenn and Jeff! My dog feels right at home there and they take such great care of him. I love getting pictures and see him having fun and looking good! I'm sure he can't wait for another stay!! Will definitely use them again!

Gwenn and Jeff do such am outstanding job caring for your dog and making him / her feel apart of their family. They constantly communicate to you how your dog is doing during the day which is wonderful!
First time to use Dog Vacay and first time for our dog to ever be away from us!! Glenn and her family were amazing-wouldn't hesitate to use her again and again! She spoiled our Bodie like he was her own, sent tons of pics and updates and made him feel quite at home from what I could tell from the pics. I only worried a bit about our dog cuz it was his first time away from us but within the first couple hours she sent me pics and update and I never worried again for the 3 days we were gone- except that maybe Bodie wouldn't want to come home!
Pick Gwenn and her family to care for your pets if you want to feel secure in knowing your pet is treated like one of their own!

Gwenn and Jeff were AMAZING with Jackson! We loved getting frequent updates. Jackson has special needs and I was so comfortable leaving him for a weekend with Gwenn and Jeff! Will definitely use them again and again!
A very loving and caring pet friendly home who took excellent care of our Cavalier, Dexter. Will use them again without hesitation. Great experience!
I recently sent my Cockapoo to Gwenn and Jeff's and as always it was an excellent experience ! My dog always enjoys staying with them and is treated like part of the family! She even gets to sleep in their daughters bed! They sent adorable pictures of her which I always appreciate. I would highly recommend Gwenn and Jeff! They are great!

I can't say enough about this family. Not only did we have zero reservations about leaving our puppy with them, but Gwenn also sent daily photos and messages about her well-being. They are so patient and kind and we really appreciate it! Thank you and would recommend to anyone!

My girls love staying there all day and getting tons of cuddle time.
Noelle & Grace greatly enjoyed their time at your house. They looked very comfy. I really appreciated the pictures and updates throughout the day. Can't wait for Noelle and Grace to visit you all again.
Gwenn & Jeff have been a life line for my family.
Within a few weeks of our first stay Gwenn and Jeff took our boys in again. To our surprise the boys were so excited to be at Gwenn & Jeff's again. We now reference their home as our home away from home. It is wonderful to know we are leaving the boys with someone who truly cares about them.

Abby always enjoys herself when she is with Gwenn, Jeff and Amber. It is comforting to know how well they take care of her.
Gwenn and Jeff are absolutely fantastic! They are so great about communicating to you how your dog is doing. They send numerous pictures showing you how are your dog is doing during the day. They truly care about your pet and treat them as if they are their own. Great people and great service. They are pawtastic!

Gwenn and her family were awesome. We. Would definitely recommend. Look forward to using her again.
As always Gwenn and Jeff did a wonderful job taking care of my Cockapoo Reagan. I really appreciate how they communicate with me with messages and pictures. My dog is always happy to go to their home. They treat here like part of the family and take excellent care of her! I would highly recommend them!

Thanks so much to Jeff Gwenn and Amber Cohen for taking such good care of our labradoodle Sydney. She was there acting like a puppy for a week. Syd is 12 1/2 years old. She was treated like a princess and didn't seem in a hurry to leave.
Excellent pet care for our girl.

Abby had another enjoyable stay with Gwenn, Jeff and Amber!
We were thrilled to find Gwenn and Jeff to watch Indy for a couple of nights. As she is a special needs dog and this would be her first time away from home without us, we were a bit hesitant. Not to worry! They were great. At our meet and greet Indy felt right at home and while we were away we received many updates and pictures. She had a great time and we had peace of mind. We will definitely use them again!!

Our dogs enjoyed their stay and were not stressed out in the least being in an unfamiliar environment. They were obviously treated with care and made to feel at home. I would not hesitate leaving them in the care of Gwenn and Jeff the next time we are in need of a home for our pups.

This is the first time we have taken the dogs to someones house to be watched. Gwen gave us updates on how it was going and when we picked them up they were happy and very tired.
We were very comfortable leaving the dogs with Gwen and family and will be bringing them back soon!

If you are looking for a perfect place to leave your dog for a day, look no further. Our dog, Sandy, had another super day at the Cohen household. She absolutely loves going there for a day of fun. This time she did not have to share Goldie with any other dogs and it sounds like they were two girl friends enjoying play time followed by rest and then more play. The pics sent to us throughout the day tell the story and are always appreciated. We never once worry if things are going well, we simply know Sandy is in the care of a wonderful, dog loving family. We head north for the summer soon and will miss them! Thank you all!

This was Maggie's second time staying with Gwenn and Jeff and she was so excited when we arrived to drop her off! Again, a super smooth experience and Maggie had a blast! Absolutely no worries with Maggie in their care and we can't wait to let Maggie visit again :)

Gwenn and Jeff are amazing. We've never boarded our dog before because we thought we wouldn't ever be able to find a place that cares for our dog as much as we do. We are so glad we found Gwenn and Jeff!! Our 1 year old Lab, Maggie, had an absolute blast with them and we never worried about how the stay was going. Maggie had a couple unique behaviors to get over while we were away and Gwenn handled it with extreme professionalism and helped Maggie over come her odd behavior. We received numerous updates and photos that only put us more at ease. They opened up their home to us and Maggie and we have certainly found our "go to" boarder! Maggie got to play and socialize with other dogs the entire time and had a ball!

A++++!!

Thank you Gwenn, Jeff, Amber and Goldie!! Sandy received excellent care from all four of you! As always she had a great, fun day and has slept most of today, no doubt having really, good dreams remembering her time with you. Thanks a million!
Gracie had another good stay with Gwenn, Jeff, and Amber. We are very confident and comfortable knowing Gracie is getting great care and lots of attention. The convenience to drop off and pick up Gracie to best meet our schedule is another plus.
Gwenn & Jeff were perfect! They were structured, but soooo caring. We needed dog sitting for the weekend at the last minute and we could not have been happier. There is no doubt that we will use their service again:)
As always Gwenn kept me up to date with Maggie's stay with messages and photos. They know what she likes and makes sure she gets what she needs. She even gets to sleep in bed, just like at home. Thanks for another great stay!
My Morgan and I are so happy to have Gwenn, Jeff, Amber and Goldie for our Dog Vacay place. I know he is receiving excellent care and is treated like one of the family. I highly recommend Gwenn and Jeff.
The Cohen's love doggies. They are calm, they speak kindly to their canine guests, and our dog, Salty, has responded in kind. He trusts them, is happy to see them when he arrives, and the pictures of him interacting with Gwenn and Jeff, Amber and her dog, Goldie, and this last time the Cohen's pet fish is all that a dog-owner can hope for when leaving a beloved pet in another's hands. We are so grateful to know that when Salty is with the Cohen's he is just as safe and happy as he is at home.

Jacks stay with Gwenn & Jeff was awesome... Jack was made to feel right at home! He loved his stay and felt safe and well taken care of!! He even got to sleep with their little girl!!! I'm glad to have found a place to leave Jack when needed.. And to be worry free!!!

Gwenn and her family are true dog lovers and wonderful hosts. Our Misty Mae Westie spent three separate days with them while we toured around, and each time she returned tired, happy, and loved. We especially appreciated their regular updates and photos and the daily brushing given Misty. Gwenn is prompt and clear in her communications and trustworthy. We will remember Gwenn and her family for future visits to the Fort Myers area. Thank you, Gwenn!

Our pup Vada had another successful stay with Gwenn, Jeff and Amber. We received several pix and videos during her short two day stay. Your pooch will be happy to stay with this dog loving family.
We have never left Ruggles at a kennel or anyone we didn't know before and were a bit nervous leaving him . He had the best time ever. Gwenn and Jeff sent pictures and updates at least once a day. They treated him like one of their family. I would recommend them to anyone and would leave him with them again

Gwenn, Jeff and Amber are wonderful! Abby, our 'sensitive' Beagle, is well cared for and becomes part of their family when we are away. I would highly recommend Gwenn, Jeff and Amber to anyone looking for a secure, warm and happy home for their dog while on vacation!

Another great visit for our fur-baby! She is pampered there as much as she is at home. Thanks!
Gwenn and Jeff are just incredible!! We foster for a pug rescue and used Gwenn and Jeff with a few of our special needs pugs for day care and they were just so happy to be there--it really was like a second home for them. It can be so hard to leave your pups behind but receiving pictures, updates, and just knowing that they are being loved in a wonderful home is just such a blessing. Thank you, Gwenn and Jeff!!!

We were very pleased leaving our dog, Caroline, with Gwenn and her daughter, Amber. We did not meet Jeff. We received pictures each day and even a video of her having fun! We certainly will use them again when we have the need.
We were vary pleased to find Gwenn, Jeff & Amber to care for our over 11 y.o. English bulldog Sarge. The best choice ever!! You can see a difference when people just do their job or when they truly love animals. They treated Sarge like he was their own, When we picked Sarge up, he looked happy and healthy. Our dog is happy - we are happy! Gwenn sent daily updates and numerous pictures of Sarge, Whole family were involved in process of taking care of Sarge. They worth every penny. It was the best experience with dog sitter. We will absolutely be using this wonderful family again to watch Sarge next time we will go out of town and would highly recommend to anyone. With all our appreciation, Jay & Inna

WOW!! We were able to have a relaxed vacation due to the daily communications and pictures from Gwenn. We saw our dog having fun, relaxing and overall looking VERY happy all the time. I was assured she was eating well and even told where she was sleeping at night. Since our Grace is 15 and altho' in good health, you never know what may happen. I provided Gwenn with an authorization letter indicating my wishes for all fates that may befall Grace (along with payment info if needed) and I knew that Gwenn understood completely and would carry our my wishes. Gwenn "gets it"; gets how pet parents feel about their animals as weird as we may get. Gwenn's daughter was Grace's best buddy and you can see in the pictures I received the loving look on her face while interacting with Grace. You just know that she also loves animals. If we have to go away again I would not use anyone else to board Grace but Gwenn and her family. You know, silly pet parent, I would change my vacation dates if Gwenn was not available!! I feel totally confident in recommending Gwenn to care for your "baby." Thank you Gwenn and family!!

Conway had another great stay with Gwen and Jeff and as always was tired and happy when we picked her up.
Gwenn met us and Vada, our 11 week old puppy, a few days prior to her overnight stay. Gwen is extremely friendly and hospitable. Vada had the opportunity to meet at least 4 other friendly canines and seemed to enjoy her stay. We received several photos over her two day stay and a video. Vada is returning next week for another 2 days, because we trust Gwenn to take good care of her and keep us informed.

Conway had another great stay with Jeff and Gwen, this time for 5 nights and once again Conway ended up happy and tired when I picked her up. We will definitely be using Gwen and Jeff again for future stays.
Gwenn and Jeff always do a great job looking after my Cockapoo Reagan! They always send cute pictures and let me know how Reagan is doing! They treat her like one of the family! I would highly recommend Gwenn and Jeff! They are great! Thank you ! Dot
Gwenn and Jeff, and even their daughter Amber were super hosts for Toby.

This was our first visit to the area and after trying to contact several sitters we found them. Best choice ever! Gwenn sent several pics by text and Toby always looked very happy! They are our best Dogvacay experience yet,

As always, I was kept in touch by numerous videos of Morgan and knew he was happy, well cared for and having a great time. He actually hesitated about leaving Gwenn when I picked him up. He is so at home there and Goldie and Amber are his best friends.

We left our "girl", Grace with Gwenn (and Jeff and their lovely daughter) for an overnight meet and greet prior to leaving Grace for a week later this month. The experience was worth every penny as I am 100% confident that Grace will be happy and very well cared for when we are away on vacation. Accommodations were made for Grace's age and activity level. Gwenn's house is perfect for dogs..tile floors! What made me feel great was that Grace ate her dinner for Gwenn...something she does not usually do the first day or even two when I have left her before. We have not had Grace "boarded" in the last 13 years (she is 15!!) because of prior adverse experiences but I am, as I said, 100% sure that we chose the perfect place for Grace's vacay at Gwenn's house.

Our pups love spending time with Jeff, Gwenn & Amber!
Our dog, Sandy, had the pleasure of a second day of play with Gwen, Jeff, Amber and Goldie. It was wonderful to know such good people were caring for our girl. I have no worries when we are on a day trip, I know she is in good hands as well as having a super fun day with her friends. Receiving texts from Gwen during the day is so helpful and appreciated. We are so incredibly fortunate to have met this wonderful family! Thank you Gwen and all!!

We left our two dogs with Miss Gwenn for a week and they came home happy and exhausted! She was wonderful about giving us daily updates and sending us lots of pictures. I really think they had more fun over there than they ever do at home! We will absolutely be using her again the next time we go out of town and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!!! Thank you Miss Gwenn and family!

I am thrilled with Gwen and Jeff and of course, Amber! They made Jack so happy on this first stay with them, he warmed to them within a day, and was so relaxed and happy when I picked him up. They treated him just like he was their own, sent me photos every day and updates of Jack's escapades. He got to sleep with Amber, which was great because he sleeps with me every night so he was very happy with that arrangement, and he really loves kids. Ours are grown so this was a special treat for him. Gwen even teared up when she said goodbye to Jack. It was much more than I hoped for. I will feel very comfortable now taking trips, which is making my husband very happy, knowing Jack will be well cared for and most of all, happy while I am gone. Nothing makes me happier than when my Jack is happy!

We were more than pleased with Jacks stay at Gwen and Jeff's. The videos, pictures and updates during his stay were thoughtful and reassuring that he was being well taken care of. We will not hesitate at all to have Jack stay with them next year! Thanks so much! Julie, Gary & Jack

We are so pleased to find Gwen, Jeff, Amber and Goldie to care for our dog, Sandy!! Our dog is a rescue with issues, lots of fears. The whole family took special care and steps to alleviate her fears and she had a wonderful time. She even took a walk with Jeff and that is "double huge" because she is afraid of both men and walks!! Honestly, we have never had a good experience with non-family taking care of her, this was a great day for our family!! The photos we received helped us relax and enjoy our time away. Thanks a million!! We will definitely be back!

Gwenn and the Dog Vacay process could not have been easier or better. We have a nine year old dog who has always stayed at one or two homes of friends or the person who trained him. This is first time we took him with us on an extended trip. We have a 3 day side trip during the time and Dog Vacay was perfect

Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter take wonderful care of our dog. When we leave town we can relax knowing that our dog is in good hands. We only have their family watch our dog and they are always willing to watch her on short notice.
This was Conway's 2 nd stay and she had a great time as usual. Gwen and Jeff are excellent about handling the dogs. Conway loves staying there and playing w Goldie! She'll be back!
I can NOT say enough pawsitive words about Gwenn + Jeff! The daily updates were beyond fantastic, she treated Bella as if she were part of her own family and was respectful of Bella's special needs and diet. If my dog ever disappears (god willing I hope not) I know she has trekked back to Gwenn's house!!

As much as I do not like to leave my Charlie behind, with Gwenn and Jeff Cohen taking such wonderful care of him while I am away, this is the only way to go! They love having Charlie stay with them and Charlie loves them too. It's a win win combination for all of us!

Gwenn and Jeff were simply amazing. I made a very last minute reservation (less than 24 hours heads up) and they were quick to respond and were able to accommodate the timeline that I needed. When I dropped my pup (read 70lb lab) off, I instantly could tell that they were very good with dogs. Throughout the day she sent me pictures to keep me updated with how he was doing. At the end of the day when I picked him up, I could tell that she spent time with my dog because she noticed many of his personality traits and he was so happy! Without question I would take my pup back to them and would recommend anyone to them without reservation. Easily a 10/10

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

It is always a bit nerve racking to leave your "child" with someone new, but from my first conversations with Gwenn, I could tell this was the right choice.

We loved the updates and photos we got throughout our dog's stay... it sure made our vacation a lot more relaxing knowing that he was in such great hands and having such a fun time with his new dog (and human) friends!

I can't thank Gwenn and her family enough. They have a beautiful home with lots of space for the doggies to rest, play, and even swim!

I know how difficult it can be to leave your pup, and also how stressful it can be to choose the right option for dog's care. If you are looking for a caring & warm family that loves dogs as much as you do - you've found the right place :) I really can't recommend them enough.

My heartfelt thanks to Gwenn, Jeff, Amber, and Goldie! We hope to be in the area again next year, and we definitely know where Mojo wants to stay!

Gwenn and Jeff, their beautiful daughter, Amber, their happy puppy, Goldie, and even their guest hound, Mojo, all pitched in to take in our Salty when I was rushed to the hospital where I spent 4 days of treatment. This during the time of holiday season plans and business. They came to our rescue happily and I showed the pictures they sent me of the doggies and Amber to my doctors, nurses, etc. I am home and feeling better and am so grateful to the Cohens.

I recently took my cockapoo Reagan to stay with Gwenn and Jeff for the Thanksgiving holiday. Reagan always has a wonderful experience with them and their sweet daughter. Reagan is treated like one of the family and always enjoys her stay with them! They always communicate well and send pictures during her stay! I would highly recommend them and am thankful we have such a great family taking care of our dog! Sincerely Dot F.

Our Lab, Sunny, had another excellent visit over the Thanksgiving Holiday. She was even given a "Special Dinner" with the other guests. Sunny hated leaving on Sunday.
Gwenn & Jeff are the very best we moved here 6 weeks ago and feel very lucky to have found this family to watch our mocha they did a great job and we are sure mocha cant wait until her next visit
Our 4-year-old Australian Labradoodle, Saltalamacchia ("Salty") acclimated to the Cohens and their home with two brief and happy visits--an overnight and a double overnight--was ready for his nine-night stay while his human Mom and Dad cut loose in Cancun. During those days we received countless photos--one more adorable than the next--and news accounts of what life was like for him with the Cohen's daughter, Amber, who rose to the position of alpha dog almost immediately, and with Goldie, her one-year-old goldendoodle. as well with various doggie guests who joined the party. There is room for all of them, mostly in the hearts of the Cohens, but also in their spacious home and beautiful yard.
It is a huge relief to my husband and me, and to our families back in CT, that Salty was a well-behaved pooch and so happy to be with such a large tribe of friendly, loving people and dogs. This from an only child (dog)!
When we drove off this morning, Salty watched Gwenn over his shoulder until she had disappeared into the house. He wanted to take all the Cohens home with him.
Salty will be back with his second family in January while we have a one-week CT visit and it is such a relief to know that he'll be in good and kind hands.

Another amazing stay for our Daisy! She loves it. She gets so excited when we pull in the driveway. It's easy to relax on vacation knowing your dog is well taken care of and spoiled!!
Jeff and Gwenn are the best. My Morgan had tummy issues and Gwenn immediately knew what to do. Can say enough good things about them and highly recommend them to all who want a loving sitter. Karen
Gwen and Jeff are the very best doggie hosts! I very rarely leave my goldendoodle with anyone and I feel comfortable while I am away that Meggie is in good hands. Thank you guys for going above and beyond and allowing me peace of mind while I am away. You guys are the best!!!!
Read More...
As usual, Jeff and Gwenn went above and beyond with Morgan. Sent lots of sweet pictures and when Morgan developed a little tummy issue, Gwenn knew exactly what to do to make him feel better.
I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a loving sitter for their dog.

They were great! We came to fort Myers for our anniversary with our dog and needed a sitter last minute for our dinner. They were there for us, kept us updated while at dinner and my baby came back healthy and happy...slept the whole car ride home from having so much fun!
Read More...
Great stay with Gwenn and Jeff. First time using DogVacay. The whole process was very easy. Gracie was very comfortable - she got along with the other dogs, ate and slept well. Will definitely use Gwenn and Jeff again.
Salty thoroughly enjoyed his second acclimation visit with the Cohens. We will take our vacation next week knowing he is in capable and loving hands. The photos Gwenn and Jeff sent of Salty making himself right at home were adorable--making friends with Goldie the Cohens' golden doodle, checking out Daisy his fellow visitor, sprawled across Jeff's lap and snoozing with Amber and her impressive collection of dollies.
Read More...
We used Gwenn & Jeff again for an 1 day overnight event and again, 5 stars. Our yellow lab got so much exercise with Goldie, their golden doodle, that she put herself to be in her crate at 10:00 pm. Fun times always on Vacay! Jason
Another great stay for Daisy!
Happy happy happy!
All the Cohens--Gwenn, Jeff, Amber and Goldie--were perfect hosts for Salty, our 4-year-old Labradoodle, who had never had a sleepover at a stranger's house before. They followed his regimen precisely, and Amber was happy to give Salty his bedtime carrot (he needs you to hold one end). He came home happy and tired out. We are acclimating him to the week in November when we will take a vacation to Mexico, so now that he's graduated with flying colors from his one overnight, next week he'll do two, and the next week move in with the Cohen's for a week. Will keep you posted.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful care that Abby received while staying with Gwenn, Jeff and Amber. This experience far exceeded my expectations - the pictures and messages were great. They let me know that Abby was safe, secure and HAPPY! I felt that Abby was welcomed, not just into their home, but into their amazing family.

Lucky my 14 year old multi-poo, was well cared for and enjoyed his stay!
Gwenn & Jeff are great!! Lucky is very well taken care of in their home. They even go the extra mile by putting his nose cream on to keep it from drying out, and keeping his eyes free from those dastardly bugars! Lucky is a 14 year old multi-poo. I highly recommend Gwenn & Jeff for your pets sitter needs!
Read More...
Another great stay! Maggie is so comfortable there she got back in bed with Amber to snuggle after we dropped her off early Saturday morning!
Gwenn and Jeff are excellent dog sitters for our 12 yr labradoodle Sydney. She's treated like a princess. She is on a few meds and they're always given on time. Syd jumps happily out of our car and races to their home. We feel so lucky to have them for our pet sitters. We would very highly recommend them for your pets, too. We've used them for almost 18 mos and will continue with pleasure.

This is the second time our babies have stayed with them. We love the fact that they are loved & treated Oscar and Dennis like family. I would go nowhere else.
Gwenn and Jeff do a wonderful job taking care of my 8 year old cockapoo! She is always happy to go to their home and it is always an excellent experience! I would highly recommend them for anyone in the Ft. Myers area! Sincerely, Dot F.
Great stay once again! Gwenn always keeps us informed of how our dog is doing, and we love the picture updates.
It is so nice to have my Charlie back at home with me again. I understand why Gwenn, Jeff and Amber were sad yesterday. Charlie is a lover and no problem to have around. I am so happy to have found Gwenn and Jeff! Amber is just another wonderful plus! Charlie loved sleeping with Amber each night. Now if I have to leave on an emergency trip up North, Charlie will again be in loving hands!
Thank you, once again Gwenn, Jeff and Amber!
You get a 5+++++ rating. If I'm not mistaken I think that makes the rating a 10!

Could not have picked a better Doggie Vacay home for my Charlie to stay at! Gween, Jegg and Amber have opened their arms and hearts to Charlie. I had great peace of mind knowing he was in their care while I was in the hospital. Charlie will again be staying with them when I can not take him with me.
Love you Guys!

Great hosts every time I use them which is a lot!
So nice to leave my sweet Goldendoodle Meggie with Gwen and Jeff. I didn't worry all day long and was able to enjoy myself. I enjoy that they have a sweet 10 year old daughter because Meggie loves kids. When I picked her up she was happy and calm not trying to run to the car to get away. I really appreciate their personal care and warmth. Meggie has tummy issues and they were great about her feeding instructions. I have used them before and would use them again!!!!

I couldn't be more pleased with Jeff and Gwenn taking care of Morgan. He is treated like one of the family and they send an abundance of messages and photos every day.
If you want to have a stress free experience while you and your dog have a vacation, book with Jeff and Gwenn.
Love, love, love them. And so does Morgan.

Another excellent stay. Highly recommended. There were 2 other labs that our Yellow Lab became best friends with. 5 Stars. Jason
Our Sunny stayed for over a week. We got daily updates with photos. She's now very comfortable and looks forward to every visit with Jeff and Gwenn.
Thanks again for another successful vacay!
Our pups are always happy to stay at their home away from home!
Conway had a great time with Gwenn and Jeff! She loved playing with Goldie and the other dogs and she got a swimming lesson from Jeff which was great. She greeted me tired and happy from her stay which is exactly the way it should be. It was great to get the daily pictures and updates on her progress. We would definitely use Gwenn and Jeff again for taking care of Conway.

We had never left our Max & Lexie for any period of time, but we are exited to find Gwenn & Jeff, along with daughter Amber ! As soon as we arrived to drop the dogs off, we were comforted by the attention, and caring given by Gwenn, and Jeff. Max & Lexie had a 3 day stay with them, and sent us many photos while we were away, along with notes updating us on their daily activities, i.e. swimming in their pool, playing with toys, etc.
We cannot say enough how impressed we are with the entire experience, and being fairly new to the Ft. Myers area, we are elated to find Jeff & Gwenn for our future dog vacations !!!! Thanks a million, and we will surely be repeat visitors !! All the Best, Keith, Barb, Max & Lexie

Another great stay! Love all the updates, thank you!!
Jeff and Gwenn were wonderful hosts to our labradoodle Sydney. They treat her like family and give her such loving care. Sydney needs medication and has even had a needed trip to our vet. No problem for them. They took her and got any new meds needed. We feel so safe leaving our dog with them. She was there off and on for a solid month. You will be very pleased letting your dog stay there. Sydney is always so happy to see them
and goes right in the door without us. Five star treatment for our dog.

Always a positive experience for our pups!
Gwen & Jeff kindly took Buddy into their home at the last minute when we had to leave the state for a family funeral. It's such a relief to know that he is so well cared for any time we're away!
We are so glad we found Gwenn & Jeff. Our dogs loved being there.. We have a 14 year old & 12 year old Shih-tzu. Gwenn sent us pictures & updates regularly. My dogs had access to their furniture so it was just like home. When i picked them up, one of my dogs started to go back to the house instead of coming in the car. That tells us how much they loved it. booking them again very soon.
Thanks Gwenn & Jeff.

Gwenn & Jeff were really great! My 14 yr old Lucky was in very good hands. Gwenn even put Luckys nose cream on his dry little nose. He vacayed, for 10 days, and I was sent progress pics and notes everyday. I was able to enjoy my vacay knowing he was being well cared for.

Beau received excellent care and we appreciated the daily photos.
Loved the text messages and photos from Gwenn & Jeff. Our dog, Rex Anne, returned home healthy and happy.
Gwenn, Jeff & Amber are the best!
Another vacay for Gizmo was so successful. He does not want to leave all his friends at Gwen and Jeff's. It makes me feel wonderful that they treat him as one of their own pets.
Another perfect stay. Wouldn't leave Daisy anywhere else!!
They are the best. Daisy loves going there, and I know she is being loved and well taken care of.
Another excellent stay!
I just picked up Finnigan after a three night stay! My experience from the meet and greet to the pick up day was great! Gwenn is super attentive and thorough. I did not get the pleasure of meeting Jeff. I received several photos throughout Finn's vacay. Finn loves to swim...it's great that they allow their guests to swim! I would definately bring my pooch to the Cohen's again! Thank you Cohen family!
Read More...
Another great stay! I can't recommend Gwenn and Jeff enough for peace of mind when you are on vacation.
Happy hounds at this house!
We used Gwenn and Jeff for the second time for a 5 day stay. Our 2 year old yellow lab was a little anxious the first night but Gwenn kept us informed every 2-3 hours until she calmed down. By day 2, she was having a ball with the other dogs and fit right in. We received 2-3 e-mails a day with photos and updates. This is BY far a much better experience for your dog versus a kennel who wouldn't say a thing and most likely wouldn't even know. We're using them again for 8 days next week. It's like day camp, swim camp, and club med -all rolled into one.
Highly recommended again. 5 stars !!
Read More...
Gwenn and her family were great! Gwenn sent updates and pictures the whole time we were gone. In 12 years we had never left our dog with anyone but family, but she seemed to settle in there just like at home. She even got to snuggle in bed at night - which I would never expect. She was spoiled as much there as she is at home. We will definitely be using them again.
Read More...
My dog Gizmo was treated like a personal pet. Jeff and Gwenn took him into their house and he became their pet. He loved sleeping in Amber's bed, playing with their dog, watching Jeff cook, giving Gwenn kisses, and swimming in the pool. I could not have asked for a better experience. When I return usually, Gizmo is very excited to see me, but this time he acted like he was glad I was there but also disappointed to be going home. The daily photos also showed me that he was being loved. He will be coming back in a few weeks for another visit!

Another great stay for our two dogs. Recommended
Happy repeat customer!
We have a few events this summer and it is nice to have quality care.
Just day care this day. Although our boys don’t mind a day with Gwenn and Jeff.
Our two dogs had another great stay with Gwenn and Jeff. The daily photo updates keep them close while we are away. It is always clear they both have a good time.
Gwen&Jeff are exceptional people that took such exceptional care of our dog Teddy! They sent us daily updates and pictures too! I highly recommend them for everyone who needs petcare.
Always a great experience!
Our Hans and Ru had a great time and were well taken care of. They will visit again!
Our dogs favorite home away from home!
Jeff and Gwenn (and Amber) were absolutely wonderful. Our dog is pretty shy and they did a fantastic job making sure he was comfortable during his entire stay. It was great to see the photo updates each day and see how he was doing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a caring home away from home for their pet!

My dog Reagan had a wonderful stay with Gwenn and Jeff! They are such nice people and my dog loved staying with them. They do an excellent job and I have recommended them to several of my friends. I had to extend Reagan's visit and they were flexible which really helped me out! Looking forward to using them in the future!

I can't describe our peace of mind knowing that Buddy was comfortable and excited to return to your home! Thank you for making him and us happy!
They did a wonderful job including giving Sydney her meds every day . She feels right ar home when She is at their home ....
Hans and Ru had another great vacay with Gwenn and Jeff. They came home happy and playful as usual. I know they are in good hands, so I don't worry about them anymore which makes our vacay even better. We will of course, use them again.
Very happy repeat customers. Thanks Jeff & Gwenn!
Visit was great !
Wow! Sugar had a terrific time at Gwenn & Jeff's! Her daycare couldn't have been better - we highly recommend a dogvacay with this family - super family & great treatment of our spoiled rotten pup!
Fabulous hosts every time!
Getting the Woof!Woof! photos while we are away is such a kick...seeing our dog, other dogs and the family all looking totally like they belong together. I can go away and know that all is well. Plus, our dog is a bit on the high maintenance side, being older and needing certain medications in a certain way. I feel 100%confident that all is taken care of properly. Thank you so much!

Highly recommended!
Excellente!
The stay by Sydney was great . She loves to go see her friends . We love the pics.
Buddy suffers from separation anxiety, so it's always a challenge to leave him. Gwenn and her family made us feel comfortable and confident in leaving Bud in their care. He was relaxed and happy in the photos we received. We are so grateful we were able to relax & enjoy our vacation knowing he was doing well!

Always a great experience!
Howie and Lulu had a great stay at Gwenn and Jeff's! Gwenn was very patient and kind with our shy babies. The dogs took to them quickly and seemed to feel right at home. I loved getting the picture updates! It definitely set my mind at ease. I will definitely use them again when we need a home away from home for Howie and Lulu!

We are becoming regulars here, and it's because we know our dog us happy and loved.
We love how our dog feels so at home
Another wonderful stay for our dog
We could not be more pleased with Gwenn and Jeff! We specifically chose them based on their experience and enthusiasm with the dogs. Our pooches came home pooped and happy! Loved the pictures they sent while we were away. It really captures what the little guys are up to!!

Great as usual ....
Daisy had a great weekend! Not sure what we would do without you guys! Thanks for making sure Daisy is so well taken care of!
Daisy had another wonderful stay! She loves it so much and we know she's in great hands!
Our Shelby had another great vacay with Gwenn, Jeff and Amber. She was very content and relaxed and is getting so much better at being around other dogs and people, thanks to the special attention and encouragement she gets when she stays here. We look forward to the wonderful updates we get a couple of times a day, complete with photos. Having the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our dog is happy and well taken care of allows us to totally enjoy our vacation, with no worries. This family is absolutely wonderful -- trustworthy, compassionate, great to work with, and they just plain love dogs. They are our #1 choice for pet care, and we wholeheartedly recommend them!

Once again our dog Roxy had a great time at Gwenn and Jeffs! She has a special personality and we don't feel comfortable leaving her with many people but we are always at ease leaving her with Gwenn and Jeff! We can't wait to use them again in the future!
Read More...
Once again an awesome experience for both owner and pet. Thank you Gwenn, Jeff and family!!
Our pups highly recommend Gwenn, Jeff & Amber and they stay with them on a regular basis.
We couldn't be happier to have found Gwenn and Jeff. We loved all the pictures and messages during his stay and know he was in great hands there. At the meet and greet Morgan was unsure about making friends with Goldie but turns out they became great friends. His appetite was great during his stay where as on other places he wouldn't eat his meals.
We will definitely use Gwenn and Jeff again and tell all our friends and family about them and Dog Vacay.

Thanks for another successful doggie vacay!
Even though we were far away, the daily photo updates made us feel as though we were next door. This is a very loving, caring family who was sensitive to our dog's needs and dietary quirks. We felt completely comfortable leaving our four legged child with them.

Our pups love to stay with Jeff, Gwenn & Amber!
Very happy repeat customer!
Qualified and loving hosts!
The highest compliment I can give a pet sitter is to watch my dog first enter a new environment and immediately walk to another room like she knows the place already. I can leave feeling she's feeling comfortable in a good place. That's what happened today on our first visit to Gwenn and Jeff's place. And when we came to pick her up, she was excited to see us but not trying to get out of the door as if she couldn't wait to escape. This has happened before, but not here. We'll be back in a week!

The stay was great as usual ! Sydney jumps out of the car and runs to Gween . A good sign to indicate how much they love taking care of our pets ! Mike & Peggy
This was our first time using DogVacay, and we were very satisfied. Jeff and Gwenn were very personable, and helped us feel comfortable leaving our dog behind so we could enjoy an all day tour. We would definitely use Jeff and Gwenn again!
Our eight year-old lab, Josie, had a wonderful stay with Gwenn and Jeff. From the moment we made our reservation to when we picked her up after a five day stay, they communicated well with us, were truly interested in Josie, and were extremely good caregivers for our dog. Josie became a bit ill during her stay and they were wonderful at connecting us with a good vet, as we were traveling outside our local vet's area. We highly recommend this Dog Vacay host!

My dog Reagan had another great stay with Gwenn and Jeff! Really enjoyed the updates and pictures! They do a wonderful job and will use them again when we travel!
The stay was great as usual . We will use them again as Sydney seems to be very happy with her Stay .
Our pups love to spend time with Jeff, Gwenn & Amber!
Gwenn and Jeff were absolutely wonderful with our two dogs. They were able to accommodate us very short notice and sent us pictures of our babies throughout the stay! We felt so comfortable leaving our dogs with them and will definitely do it again in the future!

Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter Amber were wonderful sitters! They gave Bela a TLC experience, and even spoiled her a bit. The pictures Gwenn sent of Bela with her and her daughter allowed us to relax and know she was being well cared for. We also appreciated that Jeff walked Bela. We wish we could take these sitters back with us to Ohio!
Thanks again, Gwenn and Jeff!

Everyone in the entire family made Ginger (our 9 year old Golden Retriever) feel like she was their own. She could not have gotten any more love or better care if she had been with us at home. Ginger has several special needs. She is insulin dependent diabetic and must eat a specific times and receive an insulin shot immediately following food. She is part of an FDA study to prevent blindness in diabetic dogs and must have eye drops 3 times a day. Everyone in the family was part of making sure Ginger got the best care possible. We loved all the pictures they sent us each day to keep us updated on how Ginger was doing. We cannot thank them enough for all they did to make Ginger part of their family.

Was a little worried about leaving Nikki because she has never been away from us, but Gwenn and Amanda made us feel very comfortable about leaving her. The picture she sent that night showed Nikki very happy, I was afraid she would not want to come home. Thank you Gween & Jeff.

This was the first time we had ever left Penny over night somewhere, and it was amazing. I was never worried and loved all the pics Gwenn and Jeff sent, especially the ones of our pup cuddling their daughter Amber! So precious. They take the best care of our dog and I would never go anywhere else. Its nice knowing someone is loving for our dog the same way we do.

Lacie recently had a six day vacation with Gwenn and Jeff while we went north to visit family. The pictures we received every day showed that Lacie was having a good time with the other "guests". We enjoyed the pictures that Gwenn sent each day and shared them with the family.

DogVacay is a much better alternative to a kennel or dog sitter, especially if your dog likes to socialize. I could tell from the pictures that Lacie was having a good time interacting with the other dogs.

One last thing. Unlike a kennel where you have to pick up your dog during business hours, Gwenn was happy to have us pick up Lacie after our flight arrived, even though it was fairly late.

Lacie is looking forward to her next "vacation".

Gwenn went out of her way to make My Goldendoodle, Murphy, feel special....even going as far as singing "Happy Birthday" to him on his special day, and ........even sewing up his favorite stuffed animal, after he tore the insides out of it!!!!!!
It is bad enough to have your loved pup away from you....but it makes it so much better, to know that he is being lovingly taken care of in your absence...

This was the first time that Lacie, our 5 year old Border Collie, stayed with a non-family member. She is very friendly with people but we did not know how she would react to spending the night with someone new. The smile on her face in the photo Gwenn sent us said it all. She was having a great time!

She will soon be returning to Gwenn & Jeff's for a longer stay while we visit family in NJ. We have no doubt that Lacie will be well taken care of and will enjoy her stay.

Fabulous!
Fabulous, as always!
There is no one else we would leave Daisy with for a week other than Gwen and Jeff. She was absolutely spoiled and I could relax and enjoy our vacation because I knew she was so well taken care of!! Thanks again!!
They are the most outstanding, kind and generous family. They give Ginger as much love and attention as we do. We are so lucky to have found such wonderful people.
Our Schnauzer boys had another great stay with Gwenn and Jeff. The daily photo updates were so cute and it was clear they were both having a good time. We will of course, use them again!
Due to a flight delay, I had to ask Gwenn and Jeff last minute to keep our dog for another day. It was so great to not be stressed about where our baby was going to be. The picture updates are amazing, it made my vacation so much easier!
Jeff and Gwenn were amazing, again! Our puppy cries when she leaves her house, that must mean something :) wouldn't take her to any other dog sitter. No one will compare to Gwenn and Jeff and their daughter.
We have found our forever dog-sitters! As the parents of a clingy, nervous dog, we found Gwenn and Jeff C to be a blessing beyond words. They took care of our large Shepherd-Lab mix Shelby for 2 days and nights while we celebrated our son's wedding and also very graciously took HIS 2 dogs last minute when the previous arrangement for their care fell through. Shelby had been boarded only one other time in the 3 years we've had her, and although she was safe and well cared for, she had a hard time adjusting and seemed so sad. At our meet-and-greet with Gwenn and Jeff, we knew right away they were going to do whatever it took for Shelby to be comfortable and happy in their home, and that was absolutely the case. We received multiple email updates regularly throughout Shelby's stay, complete with photos and descriptions of activities. We were amazed and so happy to see how comfortable she was in Gwenn and Jeff's home. She was exploring, eating, socializing, and even made a new dog friend! We felt free to enjoy ourselves without worrying about Shelby, and that was priceless to us! We wholeheartedly recommend Gwenn and Jeff (and their sweet daughter)! They are loving, fun, capable, and caring, and we are so thankful to have found them! We will gladly make the 75-minute drive to their home any time.

Always great Hosts! Jewel loves coming to visit you. She really likes your daughter, and enjoys playing with her. Thanks again
Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter are so amazing! Our dog loves spending the day there and is exhausted when she gets home. It's nice to know that she is in good hands. :) Highly recommend!
Excellent Hosts. Jewel is happy and so are we, John and Suzanne
The visit was fantastic . The family treated Sydney like it was their dog . Will happily use again . The pictures provided during the stay was a bonus ! Mike & Peggy
Gwenn and Jeff were great. Our two Schnauzer boys seemed very happy and comfortable at their house. We also received lots of photos and updates of our boys which put us at ease. We will definitely use them again.
We could not be happier with the care Ginger got with Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter. The minute you meet them you know they are loving, caring people. Our Ginger is an insulin dependent diabetic and needs additional specal care and Gwenn and Jeff kept up with all her medications. We can't thank them enough for all they did.

You know your dogs are happy when you pull up to Jeff & Gwenn's house and they're squalling with excitement & they can't wait to get out of the car! Thanks again for providing a safe & happy 2nd home for our furries!
Rocco fell in love with Gwenn, the first time he met her! Gwenn and Jeff sent pictures and emailed updates daily, which made me more at ease!
Wonderful as always!
Gwen and Jeff and daughter Amber were great with our dogs. They had a great day and got to play with Amber and Jeff. I would strongly recommend them. If we are ever back this way, will be leaving them with them again.
Our dog, Maggie was well-cared for by Gwenn & Jeff during her stay at their house. They kept us well-informed of Maggie's stay by sending daily email updates with notes and videos through the Dog.Vacay Website. They responded promptly to any requests or additional care Maggie needed.
We definitely will consider requesting their services if needed in the future.

Another successful stay, thanks to Jeff, Gwenn & Amber!
Our golden, Kali, had a great time. We would definitely do this again. Can't wait till our next trip. Thanks!
Another wonderful stay. She gets taken for long walks, swims in the pool. And always comes back clean! Plus Daisy loves going!!! They are wonderful!!
Another wonderful stay for Daisy!!
Absolutely outstanding! Our Daisy just loves it here! We can relax and have a good vacation knowing our Daisy is in such good hands! We love the daily pictures!!
Gwenn , Jeff and their sweet daughter did a wonderful job pet sitting our 7 year old cockapoo! We could tell right away that they loved dogs! They have a lovely home with a big backyard and pool ! My dog was very happy when I picked her up. They were very warm and friendly and you could tell they loved having my dog at their home. They sent pictures of Reagan several times during her stay which was really thoughtful. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will happily use them again!

A very special thank you to Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter Amber who showed my two little girls lots of love. It was their first visit for two overnight stays. Gwenn was flexible with drop off times and just easy to work with. I lived the pics sent throughout the days and notes of their stay. Look forward to having them care for my girls every time I go away on business and vacations.

It's so nice to have a great weekend away & know our babies are well taken care of!
Our little Morkie, Molly had a wonderful time with Gwen, Jeff & Amber. She had fun with the other dogs and was taken very good care of. I trust them completely. We also received pictures which was very reassuring. We will definitely use them again?

Jeff, Gwenn & Amber were awesome as usual! Our dogs couldn't wait to get out of the car when we arrived. They always enjoy their stay and we love knowing they're well taken care of while we're away!
Our 1 year old yellow lab spent her first time away with Gwenn, Jeff, and their daughter, Amber, for an 8 day DogVacay. Our Sunny absolutely loved it. They were so kind and treated our dog like one of the family. Swims in their beautiful pool, long walks , and even a few visits to a nearby dog park. We received daily updates with photos which were precious. It's like a Club Med for dogs. A few other dogs visited which made for some great playtime for our Sunny. We give them the highest recommendation possible. We can't wait, expecially Sunny, for our next DogVacay! Jason & Debra A.

Gween and Jeff were great once again. Our dog has the best time at their place.
Great experience. Wonderful family. Peace of mind knowing my babies were in a home with people instead of a cage.
Gwenn and Jeff were great. They are very accommodating. Bo fits in great.
Gwenn, Jeff and their daughter were all that we could have hoped for to take care of our dogs. We received pictures and messages daily which was comforting. They were very careful to follow our list of instructions and even gave allergy medication to our dog Lucy. Their sweet daughter even helped put prescription powder on on Lucy's paws as directed.

We highly recommend Gwenn and her family to take care of your pets, and we will certainly ask them to take care of ours again!

My babies both came home happy and healthy. The daily pictures were wonderful. Such a fabulous family.
We were so lucky to have S'mores stay with this amazing family! My four children were excited to receive email updates and pictures showing our happy puppy. Gwenn and Jeff were flexible as our plans adjusted. They provided the love and care that we wanted for our dog. We have already booked our next vacation with them!!

Gwenn and Jeff were wonderful hosts to our dogs Rudy and Luke. This was the first time Rudy had ever been away from us and suffered from separation anxiety the first several days away from us. Gwenn did a great job of keeping us informed of his health issues and worked extra hard closely monitoring his food intake and making him feel more comfortable. We very much appreciated that extra effort and felt they were both in good hands.

Based on the pictures we received, Rudy and Luke had adapted to their new "Vacation" home and had a lot of fun playing with them and their daughter Amber! They also made friends with the two other dogs that had been staying with them.

We would definitely use Gwenn and Jeff again the next time we need to go out of town and would highly recommend them as a host family!

Jeff and Gwenn are awesome!
Our dogs had a blast here! They let our lab swim in their beautiful pool as much as he wanted (which was pretty much the whole time) and our cocker spaniel enjoyed all of the attention from this wonderful family! The picture updates were icing on the cake!

Thank you Gwenn and Jeff! My dogs had a wonderful time in their home! I knew from the time I left them in their care until the time I picked them up that they were fine and happy! Their daily emails and photos always assured me of this. I would recommend them to anyone who loves and cares about their dogs!

Gwenn and Jeff were great. Our dog Bo had a blast. He went on long walks, swimming, and the dog park. They gave us many updated messages and pics everyday. Highly recommend them.
Once again this was a great experience and our dog Riley had the best pet vacay ever!! Thanks so much.
Gwenn and Jeff were amazing hosts for my pomeranian, Lucy. They were very thorough in learning and understanding about our regular routines and were super flexible in terms of scheduling...their pick-up and drop-off service is awesome! Lucy even had a bum leg that I was nervous about and they were great with catering to that...sending updates about it and making sure to keep her quiet. Overall, very caring and trustworthy...HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thank you Gwenn and Jeff!

This was the first time I have tried this and it by far exceeded my expectations. This family truly cared for our dog as a member of their own family. I received great photos and updates that helped me enjoy my time away. I will definitely be bringing Riley here again. Thanks so much!!
