About A

Introducing Sarah and Ellie: Two dog lovers ready to love and care for your pup while you’re gone.

We have a fenced in back yard for your pup, so there's plenty of space to run and play. We're also a short drive from the dog park, and love taking pups there for playing and exercise.

We have no problem taking your dog on walks or, if your pup is more active, runs (Sarah is a runner). We also have access to a bike leash, so we can bike with your dog if they are really energetic and like to get those extra long runs.

We are both previous and current dog owners. We have experience with dogs of all sizes, ages and energy levels. We also have experience in the bathing, medical, or dietary needs of many pups.

We've been dog sitting for our friends for years. We would love to add your furry family member to the list of dogs we love to love!

References available upon request.
24/7 care available on weekends only - we both work 1st shift during the week.

Please note: If you book more than one dog at a time with us, there is an available $5 off for each additional dog. For example, if you are looking to book two dogs with us, it would cost $45 instead of $50. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

Reese stayed with Ellie, Sarah, Stanley and Lawrence for 10 days. He enjoyed himself while he was pampered and treated to a birthday party for Lawrence. We received several pictures of Reese and Stanley and Lawrence that we enjoyed in Myrtle Beech. Reese is well taken care of and always enjoys his visit. We are always very pleased with the care he receives. They are the best!
Pepper once again was totally spoiled and loved her stay with Ellie and Sarah! Stanley and Lawrence love having Pepper too and they have so much fun together! I never hesitate using this Host for my dag care needs! She gets pampered and spoiled just like at home!!
Ellie, Sarah, Stanley and Lawrence always makes Reese's visits to Grand Rapids is a wonderful time, and this visit was was no exception. Some day I need to go back and have Ellie train me the proper way to Reese on the leash. We have had three class trainings and Reese still walks me rather than us walking together.

Once our children moved out of state we were worried about finding a loving place to care for Reese in our absence. Finding Ellie, Sarah, Stanley and Lawrence, to care for Reese when we have events that he cannot go to, has been a fantastic find and has worked better than we could have imagined.
Still Penny's favorite place to vacation.
Ellie and Sarah are awesome! This was our first time leaving Remy at someone else's house, and I was admittedly nervous. We scheduled a "meet and greet", and knew right away that they would take good care of our dog. We fell in love with their dogs, Stanley and Larry. Ellie and Sarah humored me throughout our vacation by responding to my texts and sending me pictures. They treated Remy like a member of their family. We will continue to use them as his dog sitter as long as they'll have us. We were extremely impressed.
Penny had developed a leg injury right before going to Sarah & Ellie's. They were excellent about keeping her comfortable and keeping us in the loop. They always care for Penny as their own.
Pepper always loves going to stay with Sarah, Ellie, and Stanley! She is pampered and spoiled the entire time. I have been using this Host for about 9 months and hope to continue for many years!!
Another great stay for Penny!
This was our first time leaving our puppy at someone else's house. Unfortunately, it didn't go quite as planned because our puppy had a little (okay a lot) of trouble transitioning into being at someone else's house. However, Ellie and Sarah were very reassuring, even when thinks were going wrong! Their main goal was to be sure our puppy was in good hands, and that we could enjoy our vacation and not worry about him while we were gone. They kept us updated with photos and sent him home nice and tired out! Ellie and Sarah go out of their way for your dog, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Ellie and Sarah did such an awesome job watching my dog, Bubba, for several days! They were so sweet and flexible. Bubba had an amazing time and was so worn out from playtime with all of his friends. He even cried as we drove away (lol-he's quite dramatic). They treated Bubba like he was one of their own. We were very pleased and will definitely be returning :)!
Ellie and Sarah were the best dog sitters we could ask for. We were so nervous about leaving our puppy for the first time (and for ten days!), but she did so well in the care of Ellie, Sarah, and their puppy Stanley. All became great friends, and we received fun photo updates daily. You can definitely trust your dogs to these pros!
Once again, Sarah and Ellie were fantastic. I have found the perfect place to leave Pepper when I am away for a day or a week. She gets spoiled and gets lots of love and attention. Highly recommend them for your puppy needs!
Reese has been a guest at Sara & Ellie's for three different stays this spring. They have always treated him as if he had royal blood running thru his veins. He gets so excited when we tell him he staying with them & when we arrive at their home he can't wait to get inside.
They take Reese for walks, visits the dog park and how he has a playmate, Stanley, their new adorable puppy. Reese loves staying with Sara, Ellie & Stanley so much he doesn't even walk us to the door when we leave. I think he gets better care with them than he did when our children cared for home when we traveled.
Sarah & Ellie took wonderful care of Reese. Prior to this stay Reese had always been taken care of by family members but they have moved out of state and we needed a new plan. We started with a meet and greet couple of weeks ago. After this meeting I was very comfortable with leaving Reese with Sarah & Ellie. During the stay they sent pictures so we could see that he was settling in. We will be using their service again. I could not have imagined Reese getting better care anywhere.
Once again Pepper had a wonderful time with Sarah!! I love being able to leave town knowing that my pet is well cared for and getting lots of love!
After an unfavorable experience with a prior Host, I was extremely happy that I gave DogVacay a 2nd chance! Pepper's stay with Sarah was wonderful. Sarah worked well with my schedule for drop off and pick up, and I will absolutely use Sarah again for future needs. I was provided with updates and pictures during the stay and this Host was very easy to get ahold of and returning my calls. WONDERFUL experience!!!!!
