Imagine a scenario where you have moved to a new area less than a month ago, don't know anybody, and have an urgent family emergency several states away (not driving distance), and have two special needs doggies (one is insulin dependent/needs injectable medications AND he is blind, the other is a handful with the amount of attention he wants). That,my canine loving friends, was the situation I was in one afternoon/late evening. Ms Brenda was very prompt in communication and welcoming to help out in the pickle I was in. Of course, it came with significant Mommy anxiety as I have never used a service like this before, but Ms Brenda and her daughter Kayla were very welcoming that when we got there my doggies went straight in like we had known her for years! During their stay she promptly communicated and sent pics to reassure me. This was very anxiety-relieving. And when I picked them up they were visibly happy and well cared for. I will certainly use her again when I go out of town.

Wonderful my dog had a great time
Brenda and her family are great with animals. I was very happy with her care for Bella, who has anxiety issues. Bella seemed very happy when we picked her up. I would definitely recommend her!
My dogs seem to love it there. This time when I went to pick them up they were glad to see me, then went back to playing and didn't seem ready to leave.
This is the first time Brenda watched our dog while we went on vacation. We had originally scheduled a reservation at the canine country club, however after reading their reviews, we found Brenda on dogvacay. Brenda allowed us to come over to her home for a visit prior to leaving for our vacation to see how our dog, waffles, socialized with her family and dogs. Brenda sent us pictures of our dog while we were on vacation. We definitely recommend Brenda.

We love Brenda and her family and so does Buck! We've used her services on several occasions and she takes great care of him and we never have to worry about him while we're gone. Our Bucky can be a handful - he's a 3 yr old, 100 lb choc lab with a lot of energy who we know can be annoying sometimes! But she and her family seem to really like him and he likes going there too! So glad I found her and she's always willing to take Buck!

This was our first time leaving our Madi with a sitter so to say we were nervous is an understatement. But Brenda and her family put our worries at ease. Brenda was always fast to respond with updates and when we picked Madi up she seemed happy and well taken care of. Will def. use Brenda again. Thank you.

Brenda did a great job in keeping sasha
We were very pleased with how good of care the dogs got. Brenda sent us a message as to how the dogs were doing. We wouldn't hesitate to have them stay there again.
Took my parents 9 yr old Blue Heeler, BooBoo, to Brenda for a extended weekend trip. My parents don't travel often so they were a bit worried about how the dog would acclimate with another family. Their worries were put to rest and they had nothing to worry about with Brenda. Brenda did an excellent job caring for BooBoo, was quick to respond and update us on how BooBoo was doing during her stay, and when we picked her back up, she was happy and healthy.

The first time we went on a trip, and had to leave our dog behind, we dropped him and his bed off at canine country club. When we picked him up, we found out he had shredded his bed. Obviously a stressful time for our boy.
Thankfully we discovered dogvacay. This was our first time using this service, and after meeting with Brenda I was confident that my dogs would get plenty of TLC. Brenda kept us up to date with texts, which made it much more relaxing on our vacation; knowing my dogs were not stressed out, but were happy in a caring home environment.
When I picked up my dogs they were happy and content. They did not bolt to me anxious to leave, but were happily exploring and playing.

I highly recommend Brenda and DogVacay, and I will definitely leave my dogs in there care again.

Brenda sent frequent (text) updates, and my dogs came home happy and tired. When our flight home was delayed, Brenda kept them for an extra night so we wouldn't have to pick them up at midnight. Overall positive experience, recommended!
Brenda cared tenderly for my critter while I was out of town. Kept great contact with me every day!
She took very good care of my dogs. She's very professional and there's always someone there with the animals.
Brenda was great with the dogs. It was great that our dogs had other dogs to play with and were taken care of while being there. We will use her again when we go to Albuquerque!
Brenda is great with communication and is flexible with drop off times. Our pups love going to Brenda's. They have lots of room to play and feel welcome. We will definitely use Brenda again.
Great meet and greet, and the doglets enjoyed the dogvacay. I will definitely use Brenda and her family again!
Excellent hostess and pet people. I would highly recommend them to you as someone to care for your animals.
Brenda and family are excellent. Our furry children love going over to their house to play.
Frank had an amazing stay!! And ate wonderful!! We will definitely be coming back
