Every single time our dog visits Harold's is a wonderful experience for Biscuit and for us. We feel totally confident that she is safe and happy and enjoying herself.
Wonderful care - and we greatly appreciate willing to fit us in last minute!!! Thank you so much. We highly recommend. : )
We are running out of great things to say about Harold and Ruffus. Our dog Biscuit loves being with them and we are so happy for Biscuit to be there. You won't go wrong with putting your trust in them.
Absolutely the best. Toby was joyful when I fetched him. ,Harold,C (plus Carol and the amazing Rufus, his new buddy) gave him wonderful care and attention for which I am most grateful--even indulging his proclivity to nap on a bed! Susan B
I've always had trouble boarding Molly anywhere because she has lost weight from refusing to eat, she would come home anxious and stressed out, and she would often come home sick. Her visits with Harold have been completely different. Molly comes home happy, healthy and stress free. She seems to really enjoy her visits. It's great to have a place where I know she is well cared for so I don't have to worry while I'm away.
Our dog Biscuit had a great experience. She was so relaxed and happy when we picked her up, and she was having so much fun playing with Harold's dog Rufus, that she did not want to leave.
I hate to be moving soon. I don't know if I'll ever find another helper like Harold. His whole family took our Copper in. Through Copper, Harold learned how Boston Terriers "tunnel," and he took it right in stride. Copper kept anyone who wanted warm at night!
Harold is always great to Bruno. He and Rufus play like crazy every time he comes over. Harold's pics of the dogs are great! A very good caregiver for my pup!
Copper had a very Merry Christmas with his host family. I am uncomfortable leaving him anywhere else. There was fun inside and out, and Copper loves his host family.
We are aways reassured to leave our dog with Harold and his family. We love the pictures he emails to us and the interest he takes in our little guy.
Harold is a very caring dog owner and treated Cowboy as if he was his own. Harold's home is also well suited for my dog, with an enclosed backyard and no stairs to climb. Cowboy enjoyed his stay and would love to stay again.
We had another great experience with Harold! This time for 12 days. We can tell Chase enjoyed his time with Harold, Rufus and family. Rufus is such a great dog and playmate. Thank you!!
Many thanks to Harold and his family for having our dog be part of their family while we were away. With our young active dog and it being her first time away from home, I wasn't sure what to expect. But Harold's calm demeanor and great home made all the difference. Thanks again !
Harold and family really pampered our dog, and they helped him to feel safe. I am very confident in leaving "my boy" there. There really are some very very good people in the world.
Harold and Family took great care of our Copper in a friendly loving home. I would recommend Harold to anyone seeking a safe refuge for his/her dog. I'll be calling him again! Now I feel free to travel a bit. I've never trusted Copper with anyone else before. Copper played frisbee, went on walks, socialized with his dog, Rufus and even did "homework" with their daughter.
Boston had another wonderful stay with Harold and his family, including Rufus. It is such a great feeling to be able to leave our lovely dog in the hands of a loving and caring family, knowing that he will be comfortable and well cared for. We are so grateful for that. Thank you Harold.
Harold and Rufus were excellent hosts for Elmer. Harold was great to take us last minute when our usual sitter wasn't available. He quickly responded, set up a meet up - where Elmer (our dog) was able to check out his home, great fenced in backyard and meet Rufus (Harold's sweet dog). Elmer had a great weekend, Harold sent lots of pictures and kept me updated. I would highly recommend him as a great host!
Harold did a wonderful job taking care of Lucy and we really appreciated his flexibility with our last minute booking and early drop off time. Rufus is a great, friendly dog and he and Lucy got along very well. Harold sent frequent updates and photos and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for dog care in the area!!
We had an awesome experience with Harold. He was very professional, kind and an obvious dog lover. We felt very comfortable leaving Chase at his home which is a perfect environment if you want your dog to have the comforts of a house. They have a fenced in yard and a well maintained home. Chase got along well with their dog, Rufus. Rufus is very well behaved and so cute. Chase came home exhausted and happy. Harold shared a photo to make us feel even more comfortable while being away and even took Chase and Rufus for a walk on the beach.
When I picked up Grizzly after his stay with Harold, he looked as if he had come from a spa. Do they have doggy spas? If so, Harold could run one. Harold gave Griz a thorough brushing and he looked a little less shaggy and a lot shinier. He was relaxed and fabulous -- ready for a photo shoot. (Note to self: Must buy one of those Furminators!) Harold has a fenced yard, a great companion pet in Rufus and a lot of love for animals. Attentive, unflappable and caring. Highly recommend!
Blackjack had great stay at harold h's house!! This was our first time using dogvacay and we couldn't be more pleased.

Harold asked all the right questions which really helped me feel more comfortable leaving Blackjack. We were going to a wedding in a neighboring town and traffic in route made us more rushed than I would have liked. Harold was helpful and his place looked so welcoming and well cared for.

His dog Rufus was a sweetie and tolerated my little guy very well. Harold sent us a picture of the dogs hanging out together to let let know all was well.
This was the second time that Harold took care of our dog. We couldn't be happier with the experiences. Boston was warmly welcomed and well taken care of. A big back yard to play in and Harold's dog Rufus for company - what more could a dog want? We think Boston is lonely being back with us. Also, Harold was quick to respond to us at all times and was extremely flexible. We will definitely use Harold again and would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a great place to leave their dog while they vacation in Rhode Island or Connecticut.
