We have used DogVacay before when we lived in California and had a wonderful lady that we used to leave Ruby with, so obviously when we had a family emergency overseas this was the first place to come. We were very anxious, as starting over finding a new person to leave Ruby with at such short notice filled us with dread. But Romy was the first sitter we had a meet and greet with and it was like all the stars aligned for us. She was just lovely, her little Maxi was so laid back and calm like Ruby and her apartment was very much like my late mother-in-laws (where Ruby would stay before she passed) and so it seemed very familiar to her. Ruby was just so relaxed off the bat and got along with Maxi just fine. Romy was very hospitable, friendly, and listened to our concerns. She answered all of our questions and put us at ease. We booked with her knowing Ruby would be comfortable and well looked after. While we were there, we had to ask if we could extend our booking to the 2nd February and she agreed no problem, so we went off to the UK with peace of mind. Romy sent us photos and videos everyday of Ruby and Maxi relaxing together, out on walks and sleeping on Romy's bed. It was absolutely wonderful. When we got home, Ruby was happy, healthy and well taken care of. We couldn't of asked for anything more from a sitter and should we need to go away again, Romy will be our first call. Thank you so much!!
My little dog, had a super time, with the best care. She slept on the bed, watched movies on the coach, had the best time ever!!!!
We absolutely LOVED Romy!!! We were new to the area, and were nervous to put our pup in a kennel. We found Romy on DogVacay and couldn't be happier with the experience! We got daily picture text messages of our sweet girl letting us know she was happy, and enjoying herself. We highly recommend Romy, and will be booking with her again on our next vacation!
we were on a road trip and had to stop in biloxi for the night. we could not take our dog with us to the hotel so we searched on dog vacay and found Romy. She was very accomodating of our schedule and our dog was happy and well cared for. Definitely recommend her!
Romy took good care of Charlie Brown. She sent pix and updates. He enjoyed sitting on her balcony.
Romy was great! She was a wonderful host for my miniature poodle. They went on walks, which he loves. She sent pictures of him enjoying his day. He was very comfortable with Romy. We both recommend her!
This was a great experience, first time to use a pet sitter . Romy was very professional and did her best to help us out on short notice. She was very genuine about wanting the best for our dog. Her place was like a home and not just a kennel with cages lined up. Will absolutely consider her on our next coast trip
I would not hesitate to recommend Romy for all of your doggie care needs! Romy's daily updates, pictures and videos, left us at ease. She was able to accommodate a special feeding schedule and plenty of playtime. Romy is truly the best!
I would highly recommend Romy! I don't like leaving my dog with anyone but I did leave him with Romy for a week and she took such good care of him. I enjoyed my vacation so much more because I was not worried about my dog while I was gone. She sent emails, pictures, and videos of him daily. She even carried him to a doggy park while he stayed with her! I will 100 percent definitely use her again.
Romy kept my little dog for one night and everything went smoothly. I could tell she has a lot of experience with dogs. She sent texted me pics of him on walks and in her home, which I appreciated. I will use her dog sitting services in the future.
Great experience. It was my first time leaving my dog with anyone and Rony made it so easy for me. She sent me pictures to keep me updated. Highly recommend.
This was the first time we have used an on line service and were thrilled with the experience. Romy welcomed Cooper into her home and he immediately felt at home. Three days of love and care showed when we picked him up. He was not anxious and didn't seem in a hurry to leave. Romy sent action photos each day and that made me feel even better. I highly recommend Romy if you are in the area and we will certainly use her again.
Romy is wonderful!!! She takes great care of our dog and sends pics everyday. No worries at all while we were away.
Romy was great with Mollie. She sent us daily updates and photos and it was obvious Mollie was very comfortable with her. Very loving, would highly recommend.
At first I had a hard time leaving my puppy behind for a week, which was the longest I ever did, but Romy made sure to reassure me of his safety and well-being on a regular basis. She kept me informed of his everyday activities by sending me pics and notes daily. She is a true animal lover and I will definitely recommend.
Romy had our miniature poodle, Lady, for two weeks while we went to Europe. We went to Romy's apartment and talked with her before we would even consider booking the trip. We missed Lady, but were comfortable knowing she was with Romy. The daily pictures she sent helped also. We picked Lady up this morning and she was in great shape.

Romy has boarded our pug previously and always does a superb job!. We highly recommend her services.
Romy was Wonderful! She sent pictures to me everyday of my doggie Zoe and assured me how happy Zoe was. Romy took wonderful care of Zoe and I could see how happy and comfortable Zoe was by the pictures. I will definitely book with Romy again for any upcoming trips.
Romy was awesome!!! She sent us pics every day and kept is updated. So thankful for her!!
Romy did a fine job with our two Havanese 4 yr old brothers. She gave them their medication as it was ordered, and our boys seemed happy there.
I can't say enough positive things about Romy!!! We're new to Florida and my puppies are my life, they've never stayed with anyone outside of the family and Romy felt like family to me instantly!

I was so nervous leaving them for the weekend for the first time and Romy set my nerves at ease immediately! Littlefoot and Mila felt at home with her and her baby Maxi within a minute!

I would recommend Romy to anyone!!! I wouldn't hesitate to ask her again!!!

Thank you Romy!!!
Romy took care of our Coton de Tulear for four days while we were out of town and she was Wonderful! She sent us pictures everyday of our baby and she took Excellent care of her. Zoe was happy in every picture and adjusted very well. I can't say enough good things about Romy! We will definitely leave Zoe with Romy again when we travel.
Romy is so sweet and takes excellent care of your pup ! We just relocated and are so excited to have an excellent sitter.
Romy provides an excellent service. She walked my dog several times a day and ensured that she had enough food to eat. She sent pictures of my dog and text messages to me daily. She loves animals and treated my dog like her own. I highly recommend Romy for overnight and daily daycare.
Very nice host, flexible and sent updates. Would recommend!
A+++++++ Romy was the best and helped me out in a jam.
My dog had a great time! Recommended!
Our dog stayed with Romy for a week. It was a great experience, Romy sent us updates everyday with photos and videos, so we didn't have any reason to worry. Our dogie had a great time and was very well taken care of, including everyday eye cleaning, hair brushing and making pony tails! I am very happy with the services Romy provided and next time we go on vacation- I will definitely come back to her:-)
Leaving a beloved pet with an unknown sitter was a bit scary. After doing as much due diligence as well as meeting Romy in person before scheduling Bodi for several nights at her home, we fortunately made a very wise selection. Romy is a dog lover and wonderful person highly capable and well qualified to care and interact with your beloved pet. She kept us updated with pictures and Email correspondence. We will certainly utilize her service again. Many thanks to you Romy.
Romy was great with our 14 yr old boy. She sent us daily pictures and updates so we know he was well cared for .
Romy and Maxie were wonderful hosts to Rusty! He enjoyed his visit and would have no problem having him stay there in the future.

Our meet and greet was extremely comfortable which made our decision an easy one.Romy took very good care of him and was a pleasure to work with.
Do not hesitate to have her look after your baby!!!
Romy was absolutely wonderful with my Pug Vegas. She loves dogs and has a sweet dog herself, Maxi. She texted me regularly with updates. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Vegas with her again!
Went to meet Romy a few weeks before our planned DogVacay with her, taking care of our Bichon, Buzzee Boy. She was fantastic! She kept us updated almost daily with emails and photos. Romy LOVES dogs and has a cute little dog of her own; Maxi, who Buzzee got along with just fine. I highly recommend Romy and will utilize her again for future DogVacay's.
My dog seemed genuinely happy to be with Romy in her apartment and Romy get us up to date while we were away. Fluffyna is a small Maltese which likes to be around people and Romy's care was right for her. Our experience was excellent.
Our dog stay with Romy during our out of state trip. We are very happy with our choice of Romy and our baby seemed very happy during her stay. Romy sent us pictures and updates on how our baby was doing. Romy is very easy to talk to and very accommodating.

We will continue to leave our baby with Romy when we have a need.

Highly recommended!!!!
This was Ruca's 3rd stay with Romy. We feel she is well cared for and very comfortable with Romy and Maxi. She keep us informed on a daily basis with text messages & pictures. It is a very comforting and reassuring feeling that a beloved pooch is in a caring home when we can't that here with us.
We will definitely reach out to Romy again when we need a dog sitter.
Romy was excellent. Kept us informed regarding Lily's progress and adjustment including video and photos. There could not have been a better person to leave our Lily with. A perfect selection.
Once again Fred had a great time at Romy's. Seeing the pictures taken I can tell he is having fun. He makes himself at home.
We felt comfortable leaving our precious Ruca with Romy. It was nice getting a picture and a cute reassuring note everyday while we were away. It was clear that Ruca felt at home with Romy & Maxi.
very pleased with my first experience with this site and with this sitter. professional, reliable and trustworthy. will use again
This was the first time I used DogVacay and I think I chose the best dog sitter on the site. My dog absolutely loved Romy and came home happy and tired. I will certainly leave my dog with Romy again. He will have his vacation and I will have mine.
casey had a wonderful time and the care that romy gives is excellent casey looked very happy and very calm even when I picked up. It was a great experience and would do it again.
I was so nervous to leave my dogs with anyone other than family but when my whole family had to go to an out of state wedding I had no choice but to look for outside help. Thank God I found Romy G on Dog Vacay. She treated my dogs like they were her own. They had total run on the house and even slept with her. She sent me photos and updates every day. It was such a pleasure knowing such a kind person was caring for my babies.

I highly recommend her. Thank you Romy for making it possible for me and my family to go away and enjoy ourselves and know the dogs were being loved and cared for. You are providing a wonderful service. ❤️
Romy G is terrific. Romy has cared for my "Teddy" 3 times while I am away traveling. Totally reliable and responsible, Romy sends me photos and text messages just about everyday letting me know how my "Teddy" is doing.

When I return to pick up my little guy, he is always happy and totally well adjusted.

I highly recommend Romy G :-)
I really recommend Romy for pet boarding. Excellent experience. Very nice person and easygoing.
could not have been better- A++
My dachshund, Lawrence, had a great time with Romy. I would definitely use her again if I needed someone to watch him. She is quick to respond to you if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks again Romy! :)
Mela's stay with Romy was very nice. Romy kept me up to date with pictures and little texts. Mela is home now and is happy and clean. Thank you Romy for taking good care of her.
Romy is the absolute best! Our puppy adores her and always seems happy! Would recommend her to anyone!
Romy is a fantastic person to leave your pet with. She is professional, responsive, and an extremely loving person. She cares deeply about the dogs in her care. I cannot thank Romy enough for taking care of Riley!
We found dog vacay online and decided to give it a try, out of the few people i contacted Romy responded right away, she was super friendly and loved animals. She has her pup maxi who is very friendly with other animals as well, loved how she only sits a dog at a time so no one is being left out. Her home was very cozy and clean. I felt really comfortable at the very beginning talking with her.. my baby boy came home so happy and tuckered out.. Romy sent many photos and texts while out of the country but i came home to a phone full of messages. I would seriously recommend Romy to all my friends and family. And would definitely be using her again in the future.. Thank you so much Romy.. your a blessing..
I was totally pleased with my host, Romy, and the exerience with DogVacay. We travel frequently and usually bring our 1-year old pup with us. We needed a dog-sitter and hadn't planned ahead, and I found DogVacay online. Out of several people I contacted initially, Romy responded right away and was available. She lived nearby and had an adorable sweet dog for my Rosie to play with. Romy is a dog lover, her apartment was very clean/neat and Rosie was well cared for. I am excited about this service and would definitely recommend Romy!
Romy and her pup Maxi took great care of my little one. Romy texted daily with photos and notes about how he was doing.
