About Brian

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a family of animal lovers that would love to help take care of your pet when needed. Your pet would receive lots of love when in our care.
We have our own home with lots of space for pets. If they prefer inside, that is fine. If they need outside time we can offer plenty of outside time as well.
Pets will spend there days going of walks/trips to parks, etc. We can cater our activities based on the nature of the pet. If they just need a lap, we can offer that too. We will hold the same rules here that they would have at home.
Let your pet spend their vacation with a loving family that will treat them well!

Brian and his family were super accomodating for our drop-off and pick-up times. Our puppy came home happy and healthy! Very positive first experience with this site!
Although we initially had difficulty getting ahold of Brian right before our DogVacay date, he came through! His house was tidy, dog barriers were in place as needed, and best of all he sent us a video text of our dog playing with one of his dogs within 30 minutes of our leaving. He sent an update text the following day which was so appreciated. Thank you, Brian!
We feel very lucky we found Brian. He's quick to respond to messages I've sent and very accommodating to our schedule. He's been a great help with our new puppy.
Jack had a wonderful time at Brian's house - other dogs and kids to play with. Plus I was able to do a last minute extension on having Jack stay there due to a surgery I had. Thanks Brian!!!
Scout's stay with Brian was great. He came through when we needed him last minute and took good care of Scout. He must have played a lot because the whole ride home he slept when he is usually bouncing back and forth between windows. Thank you!
Sir Isaac seemed to enjoy his stay with Brian. He sleep for two fays so he must have played hard. brian seemed very friendly and did send me messages on how Isaac was doing. he never gave me a tour of where the Isaac stayed. i semed to be very clean and neat.
Brian was very flexible with our arrival and pick-up times, which changed as we got nearer to our departure. Molly was immediately comfortable with the setting. We received a note from Brian saying that Molly was doing well. Everything went smoothly and for Molly's first time with a "stranger", she did extremely well. Thanks - Brian
Brain did a fantastic job with our dogs. They were very content we fore sure book with Brian again
I had a good experience with Brian. He answers email and texts in a prompt manner. I even got daily updates when I was on vacation, which was awesome. His home and family are quite lovely. This was my first time with using Dog Vacay and I think it is a great service. When I dropped Jade off there were many other dogs at the home. This would not be a good fit for a dog that doesn't get along well with other dogs.
Overall Brian provided a good, but not great experience. He was accommodating of our last minute scheduling and flexible when we needed to change the drop off day. He worked with the fact that my little guys have potty training issues. He sent a couple of photos when I asked for them.

What I would have liked to have seen was a tour of his home/where the dogs would be sleeping, etc. We met ahead of time, but no such tour offered.

Moreover, although polite, Brian seemed a little business-like (?). Meaning I love my dogs to death, and would have liked to have seen a little love toward my dogs from Brian. Cute anecdotes, texts regarding how awesome my pups are (lol) …. something/anything would have been nice.
This was my first time using this service vs a kennel. I was very satisfied. My dog is 18mo GSD and loves the personal touch and being around people. I would definitely would do it again.
They have a pretty large place to let Bayli run and play. Brian is nice and responsible, which is the most important.
We were very pleased with the care Brian gave our dog Slider. Slider was in excellent physical shape and has shown no behavior changes since we picked him up, which gives us confidence that he enjoyed his stay. Brian sent us a daily text with a picture letting us know that Slider was doing well, and returned the leftover food and treats we had provided, so we knew he was getting the right amount to eat. Brian's house is in a nice location out in the country with plenty of room for dogs to exercise.
We have two rescue Huskies. One has food aggression and some aggression if approached quickly, all stemming from her previous life. We asked Brian for a meet and greet prior to explain her issues and how we handle her. With her issues we have to rely on family as kennels will not take her. After meeting them and us, he agreed to watch them!
With her issues, and Wolfs issues of constant play when around other dogs, we chose in our home daycare.
Brian did a wonderful job for the 9 days of our vacation. We not only trusted him with our "children" we trusted him with our home!
We will definitely use him again!
Chloe enjoyed her stay with Brian. She needed special care with meds and salve on her paw and this was taken care of. She seemed very happy when I picked her up. It was a great atmosphere and I felt good about leaving her there. Thanks, Brian!
Dogs returned in one piece. He stayed in contact the whole time. Seemed like they had a lot of freedom while they were there. What more could you ask?
Bailey and Cali had a great stay with Brian and his family!! Smooth and easy with great communication through texts/pics...thank you! They came home tired and happy. We'll definitely be back!!
We were very pleased with Brian and his family! Our dogs are usually by our side all the time and never needed daycare. Thank you!
Our dog seemed very comfortable with them. They were very kind and flexible in their schedule. We will use them again.
Brian was an awesome choice for our dog! He treated him great, walked him routinely, provided updates when desired and made it a point to be sure that our dog was comfortable in his new environment for the weekend that he was there. He was flexible, responsive, very easy to get a hold of and overall extremely friendly, reliable and nice. I would recommend him highly and we will definitely be reaching back out to Brian in the future!
