About Carlos

Hello!
We are Carlos and Angela, we've been in Chicago for some months now and had the great experience of taking care of many wonderful 4 legged friends both through DogVacay and even before knowing about this nice community, we've really enjoyed spending time with them.

--------------- Our Background ----------------------------
We've been volunteers at an animal care foundation back home called ''El Paraiso de la Mascota", helping animals in need. Foundations in Colombia are far away from the government supported (or partly supported) concept of most foundations in the U.S, so it really is something you really have to get your hands on if truly want to help.

We both have always had dogs at our families' homes for over 16 years so we can say we grew up with them as siblings. We currently have 4 dogs living back at home with my parents, 3 of them rescued from streets.

------------------- Our pledge -------------------------------

- Since both of us study most of the time from home, we'll stay with your little kids at least 95% of the time.

- Half the Income for the service of dog boarding will go to the foundation El Paraiso de la Mascota in Colombia at the end of the summer. =)
------------------------------------------------------------
Spending time with animals really bring us huge joy, we just don't conceive life without a Dog as travel companion.

**** Hope to see your pups soon. =) ****

This was Carly's second Vacay with Carlos and Angie. She loves them! And I think the feeling is mutual. They sent pictures and updates to let me know how things were going. I felt very relaxed knowing Carly was in such good hands!
This was our first time using Dogvacay and booking Carlos to watch our dog. If you are in a similar situation, don't hesitate! We would HIGHLY recommend using this process and booking Carlos and Angie as dog sitters. They treated our dog as if he was their own. Our dog does not have the easiest temperament, but Carols and Angie obviously put in the time and energy to figure him out. In no time, our dog was part their pack, cuddling up with Angie in bed and even venturing into the water at the beach with Carlos (something we doesn't even do with us!). They were also attentive to our questions, quick in responding to our requests and made sure we knew how our dog was doing during our 8-day trip by providing photos and videos. Dogvacay offers a simple process to sign up and communicate with your dog sitter. We will definitely use this process and book Carlos and Angie for any future dog sitting needs.

We were thrilled to have our 13-year-old golden retriever staying with Carols and Angela. They were exceptionally attentive to her needs. We received lots of pictures and updates on how she was doing during our trip. It was such a great feeling to know that our beloved pet was with such wonderful people. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who wants the best possible care for their dog. Thanks, Carlos & Angela, for treating Hayley with love and affection.

Carlos was amazing with our old pug and even sent us text pictures of his adventures during the stay. It was a million times better than leaving him at a dog hotel for the night... We really felt like Benny was happy and received great care. We will definitely be using Carlos' services again and would recommend him to others without a doubt!

Carlos was great! We loved getting pictures of our pup, and Guinness returned happy. I would gladly reach out to Carlos next time we leave town.
Carlos and Angie took great care of my pup while I was away for a week. It was obvious from the first moment they met Molly that they were caring people who loved dogs. They sent me lots of photos while I was away and even took Molly to the Wilson dog beach, which is a short walk from where they live. I would definitely use them again.

We recently moved to Chicago from Virginia and were lucky enough to find Carlos and Angie to watch our dog Chief last Friday and Saturday. Chief is an extremely anxious little guy and Carlos and Angie did a fantastic job making him feel comfortable and part of their family while he was there. In fact, I think that Chief may have had more fun hanging out at daycare than he does at home!

Carlos and Angie were extremely flexible and the multiple texts with pictures / updates made us feel comfortable. Thanks again!

Carlos took my dog in on last minute notice and was so accommodating. He looked after my dog's special needs and he came back to me happy.
They took excellent care of my dog and sent me pictures of him on a daily basis along with updates on how he was doing. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and would have my dog stay with them again.
Fantastic hosts who went out of their way to accommodate our doggies. They got them special treats, gave them lots of attention, took them out on walks in parks and by the lake, and kept us updated with frequent pictures. Would highly recommend and plan to use again.

I was in need of a sitter for two weeks, as I was having a knee replacement. Needless to say, I was quite nervous about sending my dog to stay with strangers for such a long time. After I met with Carlos and Angela, I felt they would treat my baby like she was their own. I needed her to be the only dog, and they agreed to that. I was so happy to receive daily updates and photos from them. Carly seemed to be having a good time, and I knew they were really caring for her. We picked her up today and she is calm and happy and doing great. I would strongly recommend Carlos and Angela and will definitely use them again!

I can say that they are a pretty cool couple who really like and have knowledge about dogs, I reserved a walk and my dog was perfect and happy afterwards. Without doubts ill let Carlos take care of my dog again. hardly recommend them, just really nice and trustful service. I'm so exited because it was hard for me to find somebody who will take my dog on walks or even for the weekend but now this "angels" will be the ones!!!

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT. I definitely recommend Carlos.
If I could give them 10 stars, I would!!!! Carlos and Angie saved the day!! I needed to find someone to walk my dog last minute since I found out the day before that I needed to make a day trip to Bloomington, IL and wouldn't be back in time to take Marley out for a walk. He's a big american bulldog but he would not have been able to hold it that long. I emailed Carlos and Angie and they responded right away. They even custom quoted me for them to walk Marley! It was great and refreshing to be able to get someone on such short notice. I will definitely be using them again!!

This was my first time using Dogvacay.com and Carlos' services. I was going on a weeklong trip and had never had a stranger watch my dog Mushu before so needless to say, I was a little skeptical about the whole situation at first. When first meeting Carlos and Angie I knew instantly they were dog people and had experience with large dogs. They both have flexible schedules and assured me Mushu would be getting plenty of attention during her stay with them-which she did! Carlos and Angie sent me tons of pictures throughout Mushu's stay with them and even updated me on what activities they had been up to as well! Mushu truly had a dog vacay and going foreword I will always look to Carlos and Angie's services first!

My puppy did great and happy as usual when I got home. There is no way she could have held it all day without a walk during the day. Great Service!
