William is kind and accommodating and his jack russel is adorable. The home is warm and inviting and there is a yard in back. Thank you for taking such good care of my girl! (5 stars when the back fence is fully repaired.)
Very friendly and a great place for our pup to have a bit of freedom, especially outside with access to a fenced in backyard.
Salami had a great time! Our plan to find him a home away from home when we travel seems to be working great. He also made some new friends which is fantastic. Super care. Highly recommend.
We went away for the weekend and left our 25 pound corgi/jack russell mix with Bill and it worked out great. By the time we got to the hotel the first night Bill had sent us a picture of our dog Loki hanging out and kept sending us pictures throughout the trip. Loki looked happy and relaxed when we picked her up. I would definitely feel comfortable with taking her back and recommending Bill to other folks.
Bill was better than I could have asked for! Our pup Pearl can tend to be a little anxious, and he went out of his way to make her feel at home. Pictures and updates sent daily helped us feel more at ease too!

Our trip ended up running a bit longer than we expected, and Bill was extra flexible in accommodating us and allowing Pearl to stay an extra night at the last minute.

She had a ball running around Bill's large, fenced in backyard and playing with Hunter and all her new friends!

It's comforting to know that we have someone local trustworthy that cares about our pup! We will definitely be using him again!!
William went above what he had to help me and I am so very thankful. and Boots was very well taken care of
Our experience with William (and Hunter) was great! Our pup had a great time playing ball in the back yard and came home tired. :-) William texted us pictures/videos throughout the day and evening, which really helped make us feel at ease. Yes, I would recommend William!
Raven and Shadow had fun with Hunter at Bill & Sara's home! The puppies felt right at home with their hosts. We will definitely use them again the next time we are in Portland! Thank you!!
William was a great host. Enjoyed the picture updates and Zeus was super happy to stay. Thank you!
William was a great host. My dog Bosco was right at home from the get go. It made saying goodbye so much easier.
William was very attentive to Bosco's needs and asked lots of questions. He sent daily updates with multiple pictures. I was able to relax knowing my dog was doing well.
Bosco did well with Williams friendly dog. The fenced in yard was a big plus. Bosco will definitely stay again.
Our goal when searching for a dog sitter was to find a place that would be comfortable and a home away from home for our pup.

We found exactly that in Bill and Sara. Salami had a great time and made quite the friend in Hunter. We were given daily updates on Salami and his activities giving us the ability to relax and enjoy our time as well.

Can't thank you both enough for welcoming Salami into your home and giving him such good care.

Thank you.
Our extra large Mastiff puppy had a great time with Bill and Sara. She felt comfortable in their home right from the meet and greet. She had a great time with lots of love and attention. She is a big girl that is a bit quirky but they welcomed her (even though Bill's couch real estate was greatly downsized by her presence) into their home. We did grow concerned once we viewed the photos that she was having such a great time that she wouldn't want to come home when we returned from our trip.

All the other Vacay dogs we encountered at their home during drop off and pick up were also tail wagging happy. It was great to find out that not only local dog parents but out of town vacationers were also choosing to Bill and Sara as their caregivers.
Wonderful experience and have already rebooked with them for Thanksgiving. Very flexible and welcoming.
