About Tony

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Do you want to leave your dog in a safe and loving environment? Let him/her hang out with Diamond the lovable Yorkie for a fun filled day with plenty of toys in a 20' x 24' yard in which to play.

Although we have a large yard for your pet to roam, we like to go on long walks around the neighborhood or nearby park. So in the fall/winter months we encourage you to bring a sweater so they can hang out outdoors.

We'll be sending you daily still and video updates of your pets activities; and we'll keep them nourished with filtered water, fresh food & snacks. Go on your trip knowing that your pet is being treated with the love and care they're used to receiving at home.

Tony is great! He is so flexible and really keeps you informed about your baby when you are gone. I had daily pictures and videos. I will definitely be going back to him again!
Tony was great, he took time to get to know our dog and to tell us about himself before we left Lexi with him. His house is spacious and there is a good sized backyard with lots of nice soft grass, completely fenced in, perfect for dogs. He sent lots of pictures of Lexi sunning herself, she looked very relaxed and happy.

Marvin always has a great time at Uncle Tony's! He loves playing with all the toys and running in the backyard. We bring home a happy & sleepy doggy after a great vacay. Thanks, Tony!
Lilly loved her vacay. I felt extremely safe with her there. Tony is very understanding and will keep you up to date with videos and pictures
Tony was very nice and flexible with regards to meeting me and accommodating my schedule. He also did a good job of keeping us informed with picture and video updates. However, the reason that I am giving three stars is that Tony over fed our dogs. We have them on a specific diet and provided pre-packaged doses of food to be given in morning and afternoon. Even though our dogs were with Tony for only a couple of days when we picked them up they were noticing heavier/more plump than when we dropped hem off. I know Tony was only trying to do what he thought was best and feed the dogs when he thought they were hungry but at the same time we had given specific instructions regarding feeding. I would probably use Tony again, I would just make sure to reiterate the food dosage.

Tony is the best. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. It was our first time using Dogvacay and Tony left our minds at ease with pictures and videos each day of our dogs visit. His back yard is perfect for a getaway for the city dogs too! Highly recommend

This was our first time using dogvacay. We did a meet n greet with Tony B and decided he would be great to leave our Max with. Tony B made us feel very comfortable. Soon after us dropping Max off he sent us video of Max playing in the yard. We received plenty of pics and short videos of Max and felt assured Max was doing just fine. We got a kick out of the video of Max using the doggie door to come in and out of the yard. Max seemed happy and comfortable when we picked him up. I would definitely recommend Tony B to anyone and look forward to Max spending time with him and Diamond again.

Tony (and Diamond) were great to Stanley. The daily pics and videos were a great way to know that my dog received great care while I was away.
Tony was great that he took my puppy during a holiday weekend and that he was flexible with what time we picked him up. The only thing I was unhappy with was that he sent me absolutely no pictures and only 1 video each day, AND the videos made me unhappy. The video the first day showed my dog wanting to go on someone's lap but she refused and wouldn't even pet him (which made me sad to watch), and the video the second day was a long one looking for my dog because he didn't know where he was and he finally found him at the very end of the video. My dog was in the video for 1 second at the end of a long 3 minute video (which also made me unhappy to watch). I was so upset about it that I even asked Tony to send me a video that my dog was actually in, which he did. Besides that complaint, I was happy I chose Tony over a kennel and felt comfortable having my dog stay with Tony.

Tony sent us lots of videos of Marvin during his stay. Marvin loved hanging out with Diamond, running in the back yard and playing with all the toys. Tony gave us a nice and totally unexpected gift for booking with him. We'll definitely bring Marvin back again. Thanks, Tony!

Kaya had a difficult adjustment period but by the time I picked her up she and Tony were fast friends.
Tony is a great host! Very business-like and thorough while also loving dogs. Great with photos and updates!
Tony was great with Cassie. Highly recommended.
Photos and updates sent frequently, pet was happy and well cared for. Very satisfied!
Tony B was EXCELLENT and I would STRONGLY recommend Tony to anyone!!!!

Our dog, Obi is extremely spoiled and he suffers from separation anxiety. Tony was extremely patient with Obi throughout his period of adjustment. Also, because Tony took the time to send pictures and daily reports on Obi's progress, it only reassured me that Obi was being well cared for. I really appreciated and looked forward to receiving the pictures of Obi; it gave me a peace of mind knowing Tony was giving Obi LOTS of love and attention during his stay.

Also, Toni's price was very reasonable.

I just want to say thanks Tony for putting up with our VERY spoiled dog, Obi!!

Good accommodation. Friendly, knowledgeable host. Good communication with us while we were away.
Tony is a very good, friendly and responsible host. He sent daily pictures and videos of my pup. Even though I didn't get to set a meet-and-greet session, my experience was delightful. My pup will definitely host with him again. Thank you Tony!
Tony was a great host for Penny, reliable and responsive, sending frequent photo and video updates. He's got so much space in that yard, and there are always other dogs around to play with, so Penny had a great time. We had to have two different people do drop-off and pick-up, and Tony was very flexible in making this work with everyone's schedule.

He's a great host, we definitely recommend.

I've had my dog for only about 3 months, and I was worried how Kuma would do. Tony patiently dealt with Kuma's anxiety issues, and even though Kuma had some accidents and was a night owl, Tony didn't make it a big deal--Tony has 'well, he's still a puppy and he's away from home, things happen' attitude. Tony also sent me daily pictures and videos, which relieved my anxiety :)
Tony offered a comfortable temporary home for Kuma, and I'll definitely ask Tony to look after Kuma again!

Tony was wonderful with Rozie Pozie, he would update me almost everyday about how Rozie was doing and he would send photos and videos to my phone and/or email. I definitely felt at ease with Rozie spending a week with Tony and if ever I need to get someone to watch Rozie I would make sure it was Tony. He was wonderful and for the money I paid it was well worth it, so I give him an A+++. AWESOME!!!

I give Tony a five star. He treated my dog with love and patient. I trust my dog in his care.
Tony always corresponds and kept me up dated The reservation went well.
Tony made me feel at ease while I was away from my Angel by sending me e-mail updates with videos. Trust me, that really helped me as I have never been away from my dog for more than a day. He treated my dog with care and for that reason I will always use his services to care for my princess.

Wasn't fully pleased
Tony was excellent! You can tell right away that he is a dog-lover and that your dog will have a safe and loving vacation. His place is clean and very safe for dogs to run-around in and play...especially in the nice sized back yard! Even though I was only gone for less than a week, I was kept in constant contact with Mila via the super-cute videos and pics Tony would send me. Mila was clearly enjoying her vacation!!! I would definitely recommend Tony's services without hesitation!

Tony is an amazing caretaker. He sent us lots of pictures, videos, and e-cards while we were away. Mo seemed to have a great time. Rest assured that your pup will be well taken care of by Tony.
