About Amit and DD

My wife and I have freed our days for doggy-fun !

We are both very experienced with dog-caring, as we have 2 of our own, and have operated a Dog-Home-Stay from 2009 until moving to California in 2012.

Your dog will get to have fun with the pack, go on long walks and receive all the love and attention he needs!

With good friends to play with, No leashes or crates/kennels, total freedom to roam = THIS is doggy heaven !

Our Full-Day-Service includes going on long walks, getting a chance to explore the magical forests and beaches around us; playtime with the pack - socializing at it's best; and lots of human attention that every doggy needs!

We send video-updates to your cellphone throughout the day - so you are always in the loop :)

We only ask that, Please - no aggressive dogs. Thank you :)

Hope to see you soon,
Amit & DD

Amit & DD were fantastic w/ our dogs. Our little one is nervous and fearful and was able to relax and enjoy the friendly environment at Amit & DD's home. They were very accommodating letting our kids visit w/ the dogs frequently during our time in So. Lake Tahoe. We HIGHLY recommend them.

Amit was such a great host for our 2 year old pup, Zoe. When I was skiing on the slopes, Amit sent me photos and video updates of the hikes he would take Zoe on throughout Lake Tahoe. My dog probably had a better weekend than I did! Amit was extremely responsive and communicative, and lived a few blocks down from the hotel we stayed in. It was such a great situation, and he was such an amazing host for our pup!

Amit and DD provided the best experience I've ever had with taking my pup to doggie daycare. I would drop her off every morning and pick her up every evening, and she was always excited to go, and exhausted when it was time to leave, but I could see how happy she was. It is clear that these two love dogs, large, small, and every dog in between. I got frequent text messages with pictures of my little Posey cuddling up with them in the evenings, playing with them and other dogs on her daily adventures (and I do mean adventures....they took her to a hike with a waterfall, the beach, trails, each day something new) but also allowed plenty of rest time. The care and attention was absolutely top notch. I wish they lived in my city...I'd take my pup regularly. If you have any worries about trusting your four legged friend with these two, please don't. I admit I have high expectations, but Amit and DD far exceeded them

I can't see going to Tahoe and not connecting with Amit and DD to take care of our dog. They came to meet him and collect him at our convenience. They gave him the active day that a young Vizsla needs (and sent pictures/videos to keep me updated). They provide a great service to those of us who love to travel with our pups, but also want to take the day to do non-dog friendly activities.

Our experience with Amit, and DD, was one that was all about putting all their efforts into putting the owners at ease, and caring for the pets as if they were their own.

Due to starting out late, and traffic, we were late getting up to Amit's and DD's house. I was nervous that they would be very upset with us, but if they were, they didn't show it . They couldn't of been more warmer towards us. They gave us better directions, than what we initially had to start with, and Amit met us out on the street so we would see
him. They were so kind and understanding, besides warm and friendly. They listened to our directions for our "lil" guy, and never once made us feel as though we were asking too much of them.

Both Amit and DD smiled a lot, and just exuded genuine warmth, maturity, and love for animals in general. Our pet is a "special needs" pooch, and they went the extra mile for us, to make him comfortable, and a part of their family.

The following day, they sent us pictures and a couple darling videos, which really helped put us at ease, but honestly, I didn't worry about our "pooch", because my husband and I, just felt so good about both of them as pet care providers. They are both very intelligent, and have a lot of good common sense, which is what I look for when I am interviewing a pet care provider.

D D, had everything packed very neat and organized, when we came back to pick up our "lil" guy, and she gave us an overview of how are "lil" guy did, while we were away. She gave examples, and gave much detail, which I like to have.

They also have two wonderful dogs of their own, and they are well cared for. I just love these two, and hope they will help us out again , when we get another chance to go to Lake Tahoe. I would definitely recommend them to friends, and family.

Warm regards, to Amit and DD, as well as our thanks and appreciation, for being the people they are.

First off, I've got a highly energetic black Lab. Think Energizer Bunny on crack and that's my dog in a nut shell. That said, I've had Amit and DD watch my dog, Dakota, twice already and each time they've manage to tire her out... so much so that she was completely wiped... even to the next day. Amit and DD were extremely accommodating in terms of pickup and drop off locations and times. I was really impressed with the periodic text messages and videos of my girl having a great time. This helped put my mind at east. You really can't go wrong with this awesome couple. I will definitely call Amit and DD again the next time I'm in Tahoe and so should you.

Amit and DD are wonderful people and even better dog-sitters. Our dog loves them and I never worry when she is in their care. If you are looking for flexible, kind, and trustworthy people to watch your dog DD and Amit are the best you'll find in Tahoe.

Amit and DD were great. We were skiing in Tahoe and needed a fun place for Ferrah to go during the day. We had a meet and greet on Sat. afternoon and Amit met us at the gondola on Sunday. Ferrah spent the day running and playing and we got to enjoy ourself on the mountain with peace of mind. Ferrah was tuckered out when we got home, just like us. During the day they sent of videos of what Ferrah was up to, and upon return home they even sent us gorgeous photos of her day with them.

Amit and DD were very flexible and friendly! We love that they sent pictures and videos throughout our dog's stay with them. Highly recommended!
Our dog, Dillon, had a wonderful vacation with Amit & DD. They took him for a long hike everyday and cuddled with him at night. They sent us pictures and videos daily so we could see how Dillon was doing. Amit & DD are warm, caring dog lovers - you couldn't ask for a nicer place for your dog to stay. They are the best!

We've never wanted to board our dogs in a kennel so when we came across dogvacay.com and specifically Amit and DD we couldn't have been happier. We did a meet and greet a week before our vacation and knew right away it was perfect. We left our two goldens with them for 5 days and had no worries. They sent 2-3 videos a day showing the dogs having a blast. We would definitely recommend Amit and DD to care for your pet and will use them again in November, March, and no telling in between. They are fantastic!

I have a great experience with Amit and DD. They are truly dog lovers. I brought Roxy my 2 years old Blk Lab over for a day visit while I was doing the Tour De Tahoe ride. Throughout the day, they sent me pics and video clips of Roxy. Roxy was so tire that night and slept through the night. I will definitely bring her back in the winter time during my ski trip.

I found dogvacay.com by accident, right when I was trying to figure out what we were going to do with our dog-child during a wedding in Tahoe. I didn't even know home-stay existed! I was so excited because leaving her a the hotel, or at a kennel, was just not an option. Amit & DD were able to accommodate our doggy, were very responsive with questions, and I could just tell from their picture and profile that they were wonderful people. When I dropped off Gracie (our dog-child Chihuahua) for her visit, I wasn't even worried about her, since I knew she'd be in good hands. During her visit we were sent videos of her adventures, which made the whole experience even better! They also took lots of great pictures, and sent them to us afterwards. We will definitely be back to have our pup visit this couple, and their happy dog home!

Amit & DD were experienced and wonderful hosts. Like many others who have posted here, our dog came home tired and seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed his time at "summer camp." The photo and video updates were appreciated. I highly recommend Amit & DD.

This was our first dogvacay experience and it was fantastic! We loved the daily pictures and videos Amit and DD sent. They're super friendly and our pup loved the big yard. It's been two days my dog is still tired! =) We'll definitely book with them again next time we're in Tahoe.

Amit and DD have a very dog-friendly house and yard with lots of room to play and lots of dog beds and sofas. We took the dogs away from them for a few hours mid-stay (so they could be in our wedding) and when we brought them back, they were really excited to be there! I had been worried they would be stressed out since I've never left them anywhere before, but they seem to have loved it!

And Amit and DD were very accommodating with pick-ups and drop-offs. We will definitely use them again.

Our experience at Amit & DD's was perfect! They live in a great location in South Lake Tahoe; sent us phone pictures of our dog interacting & playing; took our dog on hikes with their dogs; & even worked with us & their schedules to let us take our dog each day for some additional hikes with us. I highly recommend them.

This was our dog's first time being away from us, so we were both a bit worried. When we arrived at Amit and DD's, I realized we had absolutely nothing to be concerned about. Amit and DD were absolutely wonderful! They welcomed us and Kelso in to their home and made sure he was comfortable before we left.

They were so easy to work with and gave us regular photo updates during Kelso's stay (so nice!). Amit and DD's other pooches are absolute dolls and got along great with our little guy.

We cannot wait for our next trip to Tahoe, us for the gambling and Kelso to see his new friends!

Amit and DD are great - very friendly and welcoming and our shy (and sometimes snappy) cocker Marley loved her time there. She went on a long walk by the lake, and was really tired by the time we went to get her. This was great as we wanted Marley to have a little vacation too while in Tahoe, rather than stay in the cabin while we skied. Amit also gave us some great advice on how to stop her protectiveness, which was really helpful.

Also, a really nice touch was they sent us a video of her during the day to show how she was doing, which was really nice.

They have 2 beautiful big gentle dogs who were so clam, even when my snappy miss was being grouchy when she first arrived.

All in all a great experience and I will definitely go back again next time I am in the area.

Thanks Amit and DD!

Miaka had such a great time he is passed out on the way home. Loved the videos Amit sent showing our boy enjoying his stay! For a pet friendly homey experience, we would recommend Amit and DD.
Burdell had a fantastic time with Amit and DD. She was so tired from playing when we picked her up she was asleep 5 minutes into our drive home. The videos and pictures were great. They let us enjoy our vacation knowing Burdell was happy and well taken care of. We will definitely leave her with Amit and DD next time we travel.

This was our first time leaving our 4-legged kid with a complete stranger. Amit and DD reassured us that he would be well taken care of. The daily video updates and pictures were excellent in putting me at ease. Coby was well taken care of and we would not hesitate in using their pet-sitting home again for our precious Coby.

Amit and DD were fantastic, they loved hanging out with my dog and sent me regular picture/video updates proving she was having a great time! I will definitely be sending my pup back next time we are in Tahoe!
They were in a word, AMAZING! Amit was wonderful with our dogs, and made our day worry-free! He would send us pictures and videos throughout the day to keep us updated! A great experience with great dog-lovers!

Emailed at 9PM night before, got confirmation soon after. Dropped of Lucky at 8AM and picked up a very tired dog at 6PM. Amit removed all concerns during the day with short videos of our dog playing with her new best friends. Perfect location and friendly service.
