My dog had a great time.
Dogs always do well at Nader's house. He send pictures daily. Normally the Dogs are outside playing. Nader always asks us what he can do to keep our dogs happy. He is one of our top picks.
Nader was wonderful! He agreed to watch my little guy, Oliver, even though it was last minute. Oliver loved it at his house, and he loved Nader's little dog too. They were like buddies while I was out of town. Nader sent me pictures every day or so, and I could see Oliver was having a great time there.

We had problems with our returning flight and basically had to drive home from Georgia, so we arrived over a day late. Nader either didn't mind, or he was just very accommodating because he acted like it wasn't a problem.

Thanks Nader!

Biscuit loves it over there!!!
Biscuit had a great time! Nader does a wonderful time taking care of him.
Will definitely use him again! He's is super responsive and easy to get in touch with. He has a really good backyard and he is very attentive to my dog. I felt relived because I knew she was in good hands!
Ginger loves to go to Nader's house. We are thankful we have his care for her.
Ginger loves to go to Nader's house! She runs right in and doesn't even look back. We are thankful he is our regular go to person!
I cant say enough good things about how well my dog was cared for by Ted. Never have I left Leo with anyone besides a family member and I was quite worried to leave him in a strange place.Regardless, I could not have been more satisfied or happy with the level of love and care my Leo received. Ted was in constant contact with me and I knew Leo was in good hands. He made Leo and myself feel completely at home and I was able to have a vacation and not worry one bit about my dog. I highly recommend this sitter!!!

Paisley's stay with Ted was wonderful. He kept me up-to-date with a lot of pics and videos. She enjoyed her stay and I can't thank him enough for watching her because of the last-minute request. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Nader was wonderful to work with and our dog Ginger felt right at home. I appreciate Nader being very responsive and welcoming Ginger into his home. He texted photos and had a wonderful dog of his own for Ginger to hang out with. Ginger loved the back yard too. We will definitely use Nader again!

We feel very comfortable leaving Theodore with Nader. Excellent host.
Toby is always calm and happy when he returns from a visit. The pictures are reassuring.
Muffin likes him and he says he likes her. She sits near him or on him and they watch television together. I especially like the fact that he has a fenced in back yard as she is accustomed to running around the country and getting a lot of exercise.
Once again we were able to travel without worrying about our little girl. Sasha was excited when we dropped her off and ran right up to his door...wagging her tail. We received pictures every day of Sasha playing and having fun. She was in great shape when we picked her up after a week: clean and happy!

Another great vacation for Murphy!
Our dog appeared to have a good time. We appreciated the daily photos/videos. She slept all the way home which told us she must have played hard in Nader's fenced in back yard.
Always a happy dog when he visits Nader
Munich had a great time! We will for sure us Nader again!
Nadar is a caring dog lover - my puppies couldn't have happier!
Very accommodating. Help carry in the kennels. Sent pictures daily. Dogs enjoyed it. From the pictures we were worried that the dogs would not want to come home.
Toby is always calm and happy when I pick him up. We're very pleased with the his second home, as is he.
My experience with Nader watching my pup Neko was absolutely wonderful. My dog is used to having one to five people home at a time. So I wanted to make sure I chose a dog sitter that would be able to provide the necessary attention.
While I was visiting St. Louis for 4 days, Nader sent me tons of photos to show me how Neko was doing, and it made my vacation so much more pleasant to know that my pup was in good hands. I couldn't ask for a better sitter!

As in the past, Sasha had a wonderful time with Nader!!!! We find that our knowing that Sasha is in excellent hands enhances our holidays, especially since we receive pictures of "our little girl" having fun at DogVacay!!! We feel so fortunate to have found him.

My daughter took our dog and picked him up after a week. Nader posted several lovely photos which told the story. He was safe, well fed and thoroughly enjoyed himself.

Nader was very flexible shifting communication from us to our daughter. We are grateful.

Our daughter reports, he had a good time.

As before, a wonderful experience for Sasha!!! Ted is THE BEST! I would never have dreamed I could leave Sasha with anyone but family; Ted has changed my mind!!!
Sasha is a five-year-old Havanese and had never stayed with anyone but family until this trip. We were thrilled with our host and his treatment of Sasha. She was a very happy girl with him. He sent us several pictures of her each day we were gone. I very highly recommend Nader H as a host. We will always request him for Sasha. He is a wonderful host and his home and fenced-in yard are perfect for our pooch!

Casper had a great time! He was was given lots of love and attention! We were sent pictures on a daily basis. Casper loved roaming in the backyard and playing with the other dogs. He was very happy.
I always hated to put my dogs in the kennel. They didn't cope well. But Toby seems just as happy to stay with Nader H as with us. It's also reassuring to receive pictures of Toby lounging at his second home.
Our Boston Terrier Biscuit had a blast at Nader's house! We received constant updates plus pictures and videos of Biscuit playing. We would absolutely take Biscuit there again!
Excellent host. Awesome as usual. They are the best.
Gizzy has a great experience and was well taken care of . Nader also helped give Gizzy his medication and kept us updated with many photos each day. This is the second time I have used Nader and it has been a great experience. Thank you.
Nader was an excellent host and he was flexible working with us for later than normal pick up time. Gizzy enjoyed the stay. thank you.
Our dog Julian had a great stay with Ted and Nader. They are excellent hosts and we enjoyed the daily pics and videos of the dogs playing in the yard. It made us feel at ease knowing our dog was in good hands so we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation. Julian enjoyed his new friend Poodie and we highly recommend Ted and Nader to anyone needing to board their dog.

We couldn't be happier with Toby's experience. Since it was our first experience with DogVacay, it was reassuring to have the pictures showing him settling in. It's nice to know that Toby enjoyed his vacation as much as we enjoyed ours.
I'm sure our dog, Leia, was well taken care of. The host, Ted, obviously loves dogs and only takes the little ones. Leia was comfortable with the other dogs right away.

We will be leaving Leia with Ted whenever the need arises and recommend Ted to friends.

We would highly recommend this host. This was the first time that Oscar (10 months old) has ever been away from us and although we were nervous when dropping him off it was obvious that he felt totally at home and he was ready to get in some serious play time with Poodie. Ted sent us lots of pictures & videos which showed us how much fun Oscar was having running & playing outside. We are so thankful that we found a place we feel totally comfortable leaving our little guy.

Murphy had another excellent visit with Ted (Nader)! He is exhausted. As with our last trip, Murphy came back safe and sound. Loved getting the multiple daily texts and pictures. Plan to book again soon. Ted definitely knows what he's doing!
By boarding our dog with them, we couldn't have done any better. Duke needed regular medication - they took care of him perfectly. This was a long vacation, and at the end Duke came home very healthy, happy and a sweeter dog than I recalled dropping off! So, I would recommend them highly.

Ted (Nader) took excellent care of Murphy. He came back in excellent shape and was exhausted from all of the walks and playing. We received tons of photos from Murphy's vacation and he seemed happy in all of them. We definitely plan to book with Nader again! We're so happy to have another great Dog Vacay experience!

They did a great job, as usual!
As usual, Ted and Nader took great care of my pooch. They're my first choice always!
Minnie loves to stay with Nader. He always send lots of pics and videos of how much fun she is having.
Nader and Ted were extremely caring. They were aware that Duke had a health issue. During the stay they handled it with care and were patient and kind enough to hear me and talk to me about it. I can't recommend them enough.
Thank you Ted and Nader for being such wonderful caregivers to my pup Obi!!! You guys are the BEST!!
I loved getting daily pictures of him having a great time at your lovely house !!! I am really extremely picky where I put him and who cares for him. I am very at ease with these two and their cutie pup Pootie. Obi has a wonderful time playing outside with Pootie, sunning himself on the deck as well as chilling on the couch, that he did not even really want to leave, he was so content. I can't recommend these guys enough and I wish I could rate them higher than a 5!!! They have been so flexible and caring. Your dog will be very safe and well cared for!!! I will be using them again in the future and recommend them to all of my friends and family!

Baxter seemed extremely happy and almost ready to stay with Ted (Nadar) instead of coming home with us. This was much different than when I had left him at in a kennel on New Year's Eve. The kennel experience was awful, he was in extreme distress after just one night in the kennel, whimpering and carrying on for almost an hour after I picked him up. Baxter was with Ted (Nadar) for 12 days and seemed very relaxed when we picked him up. He even hid behind the couch when we suggested leaving and going home. I believe he received lots of loving personal one on one time at Ted's. I'll certainly leave him there again!!!

I really love my two dogs and they are an important part of my life. Due to medical reasons the couple who I had used for dog care in the past was no longer available. The thought of leaving my two small dogs at a boarding kennel for nine days (even the nicer ones that offer free run day care) left me with a pit in my stomach. I began my search to find a new dog sitter. My dogs and I went on three interviews with potential sitters that I found on Craigslist. For various reasons I did not feel warm and fuzzy about leaving my dogs at any of the three locations. I was prepared to cancel my Hawaiian vacation, then I came across the Dogvacy website. Thank goodness I found Dogvacay, but even more importantly that's were I found Nader. I studied all of the potential host profiles in my area and determined that I wanted to set up a meet-n-greet with Nader. I knew immediately when I met Nader at his front door that he would be the person and that this would be the location to whom I would entrust my cherished dogs. He invited us into a home environment that was spacious, comfortable, clean, had a resident pet for a playmate and the added bonus of a lovely fenced in backyard. I knew my dogs would feel at home here and would have ample outdoor play time in a safe secure environment. I WAS SOLD. Even though I knew I had found the perfect match for me and my dogs, I still find it a bit difficult to leave them. Nader reassures me that they would be in capable, competent hands. During the time of our meet-n-greet I got to witness him with another one of his guest dogs and he was amazing, loving and kind. Day of departure I dropped my dogs off at Nader's and within the hour he had sent me a text and pictures that helped to reassure me that they had settled in nicely and were romping around with the resident dog and the other visitor. After I received that text I was able to leave on my vacation without a second thought about the well being of my dogs. Everyday while I was on vacation I received updates, text, pictures and videos of the dogs and they appeared to be on a vacation of their own. A heartfelt thank you to Nader. I would definitely use this host for any future dog sitter needs.

Minnie had a great time!! I appreciated all the pics and video updates
As usual, Ted and Nader took great care of my dog. Poodie (host dog) has helped my skittish dog become more social, and Zoe immediately engages her when she arrives. I'll never board with anyone else!
Theodore loves to visit and stay, this is his second home.
Ted is awesome! Great communication. Cali has a great time when she's there and comes home pooped out. Will continue to send her to daycare. :-)
Nader was great. He took wonderful care of my doggies. I received lots of pictures showing the fun they were having. When I got them back they were happy and tired (from all the running they got to do in his yard).

I would definately suggest that anyone looking for someone to watch their dogs to use him. We definately will be in the future.

Nader once again did an excellent job taking care of my dog. He sent me pics every day..even some videos of the dogs playing.
Ted took wonderful care of Roxy. He sent us pics and even video via text, to reassure us through out Roxy's stay. We were able to enjoy our mini vacation knowing that Roxy was having so much fun running around Ted and Naders back yard,and playing with their dogs. It is so nice to know that we now have a reliable care giver we can turn too, when we go away and can't take Roxy with us. Ted definitely gets five stars from us!

Nader took great care of my baby, as usual, and his dog Pootie made Zoe feel right at home. I wouldn't think of boarding her with anyone else!
He's the best - I'll never board my dog with anyone else!
Have no hesitation leaving your dog with Nader! His calm energy and love for dogs was evident immediately. Our dog who is a rescue and is very wary of most people was easily won over.
Photo updates were so appreciated and we actually felt our dog may not want to leave, she looked so happy and content.
We are so happy we found someone like this to leave our dog with and will definitely be using him in the future!

Heartfelt thanks to Ted and Nader for being outstanding hosts for my mini Labradoodle, Charming's stay! He had a great time & your communication every day via text was an "above & beyond" the call of duty gesture to ensure my peace of mind -- thank you!

Best,

Kelly

Boomer had an awesome time!! He came home absolutely pooped. Nader sent lots of pictures and videos of boomer while I was gone, easing any apprehension I had. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
Nader is the best host to our Theodore.
Our pups had a great time! We had to attend a wedding in the area, and had our dogs with us from out of town, and Nader and Poodie watched our Riley and Bailey for some doggy day care. The pictures we got were awesome, all playing together, and even them going on a walk. We felt very comfortable with everything and they were extremely friendly! The dogs were absolutely exhausted and passed out in the back seat for our 8 hour drive home. Would definitely recommend!

Sorry for the delay in answering . I would highly recommend dogvac to anyone. It has been a great experience for me and my pet and will continue to use. Could not ask for better care!!!! Thank you.
Oh my God ... was this a gift! Ted and Nader were absolutely amazing with our dogs! I was so fearful of leaving them somewhere during my daughters wedding but the minute they got there, they jumped right in and accepted Ted as if they knew him ... and my two doggies really don't like anybody!

The house was immaculate and beautiful. The back yard was awesome and safe. Plenty of room to run and play. A beautiful environment ... I almost wanted to stay myself:)

We got pictures texted to us, we got texts with updates, and we really were able to relax and enjoy the wedding.

My dogs stayed with them for two days and two nights and I was completely at ease. I never thought I could drop my dogs off with anyone and actually be comfortable and not worried about it.

We will use them again for sure ... since we travel to Virginia a lot. I would suggest their services to anyone. I really do mean it when I say relax ... your dog(s) will be fine. They'll watch TV, run and play, and sleep like babies.

Thanks you guys!!!!

Thank you Ted.
Great second home for our Boston.
Nader H was a great host to our Boston Terrier.
This was a last minute reservation. Nader was very accomidating. Thanks!
Nader took great care of my baby - I can't recommend him highly enough!
Nader and his adorable dog Pootie took great care of my doggie. My dog tends to be skittish, so I was thrilled to receive daily videos showing her playing joyfully with Pootie. Nader shampooed and brushed her out regularly over her six week stay, and sent me regular updates to ease my mind. Being in the middle of a family crisis at the time, I really needed to know that my dog was in excellent hands, and that she was. I can't recommend Nader highly enough, and fully intend to book with him again in the near future!

I am so happy to have found Nader on DogVacay.com. He is extremely responsive to emails and texts. The meet-and-greet put everyone at ease...Lacey and Lily were "at home" immediately. Nader sent pictures and videos each day we were gone, which made us appreciate the fun our pups were having with him and the resident (very sweet and calm) poodle. The fenced backyard is perfect for dog play.

I can't recommend Nader enough!

Nadar was awesome! He is a great guy with the perfect dog loving home! Super flexible with drop off and pick up times, tons and tons of pictures and videos everyday to show us (especially our two little boys) how happy Sparky was on her doggy vacay. She came home happy and one tired little pup from all the fun she had.

I would absolutely recommend to anyone in need of someone to watch their dog!

Aly stayed for a week with Nader and had a great vacation playing with her little dog friends. Nader sent pictures regularly which were the highlight of my day. I don't know who had a better time, Aly or my family. Nader is very professional and I highly recommend him to everyone who loves their dog.

Nader did a great job with my puppy - he was very patient with her high energy. His fenced-in backyard is a big plus. I initially was very nervous about leaving her with anyone, but I felt good about this experience and would recommend him to others. He sent lots of pictures too!

Aly went to Nader's today for daycare in preparation for her week long stay next week. She is an active little dog and if being very tired is an indication of an active and fun-filled day then she had a ball! I know she will be happy to go back to play and make new friends. I am very comfortable leaving her with Nader and know she will be treated very well.

Thank you for taking such good care of our "four-legged children"!
Minnie had a great time at Nader's house. I was so excited to receive so many pics of her enjoying herself and playing. We will definitely use his services in the near future!
This was my first experience with leaving my dog with anyone overnight and after our meet and greet, I felt very comfortable that she would be in good hands. Nader was very quick to answer any concerns I had and accommodating. Was nice to receive daily photos/updates to set my mind at ease.

Highly recommend Nader to anyone!

Nader was very nice and helpful. His immediate responses for Meet & Greet and the reservation was appreciated. I felt my dog was a great fit and would use Nader again. He also sent me daily pictures!
I'm sure Coco enjoyed his stay! He enjoyed staying in a loving home, rather than a kennel! I enjoyed getting regular photos of him! Thanks for taking great care of him! Will be back again when we need care for Coco! Thanks!
We were very pleased with Nader's flexibility. He picked up our dog with a request to watch her for 2 weeks at the very last minute. Nader was very responsive, flexible and accommodating. It would have been great to have daily photo updates, but other than that everything was great. Our dog seemed very happy at his place. We will definitely use Nader's services again!

Thank you, Ted. You did a great job. Amber and Evie returned to us happy and healthy. You gave them a home away from home. We would use him again.
Nice and friendly environment. I was looking for a last minute option for my greyhound and with a great response time and flexibility I was able to do a meet-n-greet within a day. Knowing that the host was home all the time to show love and attention was a huge relief. My dog rarely eats when he isn't comfortable and he finished his dinner there so that says enough for me!
