About Ed and Noreen

53 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are located within 10 minutes of Walt Disney World resort in a first floor pet friendly gated condo . There are multiple landscaped dog run areas , the A/C is kept at 74 degrees all summer long ! I am home all day and my husband is a retired police officer with years of canine experience .
With 4 children plus extras we had multiple rescued dogs always in our home -Rottweiler ,German Shepherd, Poodle , Boston Terrier , Schnauzer , Chihuahua ( yes , every size !) -and those whose ancestry would always be a mystery ! Every one was a rescue or in need -and we could not give a count of those who fostered on their way to a great home .Our children are grown and our last senior dog passed away 3 years ago . A vacation visit is ideal for us -and we would love to make it ideal for your "best friend "!
I prefer to keep guests from only one family at a time so that your pet has constant quality care. I am at home 24/7 during any booking and would be pleased to answer any questions.Thanks for considering our home !
( custom rate adjustments for repeat friends , multiple dogs , shorter theme park days , etc!)

Noreen and Ed treated our dogs like their own. We are excited to use them again. A lot of picture updates and great communication.
Noreen was fantastic, our boys loved her & nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely ask her to look after our dogs again!
We were thrilled with the care given to our little guy Walter. We knew from the very first meet and greet that we could trust Noreen and Ed to keep him safe and happy. We were right as Noreen made him some special food to care for his upset tummy! When we picked up Walt he was happy and content but for a day or so missed all the attention he had been given! Also he is now loving walks again! Thank you Noreen and Ed for taking such good care of him.

Noreen is one of the sweetest people I have met to care for Mystique.
I don't want anyone else but her to watch my fur child in the future. Mystique came back exhausted which helped us out as we were exhausted from being at the park all day. noreen took her with her on her car drives and errands which was great.
My favorite part though was mystique came back smelling like their home - cinnamony pumpkiny spicy warm fall smell. .
Mystique was happy to go back the next day which is how I'm assured she was great with her.
I was sent so many photos and noreen was so prompt with her replies which was great. And her timings were so flexible that I could enjoy the day at the park without worrying.
Thank you for taking such good care of mystique.

I almost don't want to share how amazing Ed and noreen are!
They are a rare gem that make sure that your fur baby is taken care of everything minute of the day!
We enjoy the photo and video updates and how special they make us and banfi feel!

Noreen was fantastic in so many ways. I had a last minute need for dog care while on vacation in Orlando. She went out of her way to accommodate our needs in terms of hours, arrival times, etc... She has a lovely and welcoming home and really makes the dogs feel comfortable in her presence. In addition, she's got a wealth of knowledge re the amusement parks and gave us all sorts of very helpful insider tips on how to make the most of our trip. I'd happily use her services again!

Noreen made our visit to Orlando so much more pleasurable knowing our big dog was well taken care of. She is without a doubt a wonderful asset to all of us pet owners.
Noreen and Ed are awesome!!!! They watched our little lady while we went on vacation and made it so enjoyable! Pics every day and constant love.
Miss Noreen is a very gracious host, so happy I found her. She explained everything when we dropped off our dogs, and asked for details about them like eating and sleeping habits, toys, preferences.Our 2 dogs looked very comfortable and happy with her, i'm sure they loved the long walks several times a day. I really appreciate the pictures the she sent, kept me at ease while vacationing in Disney. She is highly recommended and will contact her again when we go back to the Orlando area.

Zhivou stayed with Ed and Noreen for almost four days in July. They provided a loving, clean, organized and pretty home for him. They were very attentive to his needs and kept us appraised of any changes in his behavior, moods, frisky attitude and sent many pictures of him enjoying the outdoors, his sleeping quarters and pictures of him hanging out with the other dog in the home and with other family members. A very loving environment and lovely people. Zhivou seemed to be a little stressed out being out of everyday surroundings and his natural habitat, but Ed and Noreen handled his fears accordingly. I highly reccommend ED and Noreen to take care of your fur babies.

Ed and Noreen were awesome with our dog Boss. This was first time my wife and I tried leaving Boss with someone other than family. Ed and Noreen were great at warming us up with this change. They sent frequent photos and gave constant reassurance to us. Boss loved it and he felt right at home. We WILL use Ed and Noreen again and will definitely recommend dog vacay to others. Thanks Ed and Noreen!

Noreen and Ed have taken care of our fur baby girl, Godiva several times now and they have been so wonderful caring for her in their home just like she was their very own. They sent pictures to keep me updated on how she was doing and all the fun things that she does with them, especially playing with their adorable grandchildren too.

I highly recommended this sweet couple! I know if Godiva could speak she would say that "she absolutely loves to go on her DogVacay's at Aunt Noreen's and Uncle Ed's house!"

I am so happy I found DogVacay, Noreen and Ed! I chose them based on their close proximity and their great reviews. After meeting them, I felt completely at ease with leaving my Charlotte with them.
Their love of dogs is very evident. I really appreciated the extra care and attention they gave her during a thunderstorm since she is terrified of them. I highly recommend them.

We could not be happier with noreen and Ed. Our Kali is older and a little fragile, so we are always concerned about her well-being. They took excellent care of her and she came home very happy. We would highly recommend them to watch your pets. We are so happy that Kali is staying with them for 10 days in August when we go away.

Noreen and Ed were AWESOME! My little Sprocket was given so much attention and love. I got multiple picture updates every day and he definitely looked like he wasn't missing his Mommy & Daddy. I will definitely be reserving time for him to stay with Noreen and Ed again. It was comforting to see and know that he was in good hands and that he was happy. :)

Noreen and Ed were very nice! Tank loved his stay and we were very pleased with the care he received. We got lots of updates and pictures and were very happy to find a nice place for him to stay while visiting Orlando!
Noreen is AWESOME!! We left our two dogs with Noreen for 3 nights. She is so kind, warm and wonderfully accommodating. Noreen texted us pictures at least 3 times each day with updates. My little 7 month old puppy was sad when we left him; but Noreen was very loving and compassionate and made both our dogs feel welcome. Noreen made it very easy! I would DEFINITELY recommend Noreen; and if I am ever in the area again, I will definitely have my dogs stay with her! Thank you Noreen for taking such great care of our dogs CC and Louis!

I couldn't be more please and full of gratitude than I am for the way Noreen and Ed cared for my precious dog Solomon!! It was my first time entrusting him with someone he didn't already previously know, and he warmed up to them immediately. I could tell right away that Noreen had a true love for animals and would care for my boy as her own, and she did just that!!

Let me just start with AWESOME! From the very first conversation on the Dogvaca website to today, two days after we have already claimed our baby back.... Noreen and Ed have blessed our family. Our trip to FL was to celebrate our daughters wedding and leaving our 12 year old golden retriever behind in MD was not an option so we booked our first dogvaca experience with Ed & Noreen. The community they live in is safe and clean which made me feel good. Sandy was loved on and massaged often, she ate well, and smiled for pics if she wasn't already sleeping on the couch. Noreen sent me several pics of my very happy girl.
We will be visiting our family in FL a few times a year and I do plan on having Sandy visit here again. Thank you Ed & Noreen for caring for her as if she was your own. You have blessed our pack.

Noreen and family took excellent care of Willie -- sending me pictures and texts/emails. Will definitely use them again.
Noreen watched our dog, Cody, for the first time. He gets a little nervous when he is not at home but he was completely at ease at Noreen's house. She took him on walks, gave him scratches, and he ate it up! He was a very happy boy when we picked him up.

Thanks for a great day, Noreen.

I cannot begin to express how overjoyed my family and I are to have found Noreen and Ed!! Leaving our dog, Susie, is something we rarely do and always produces so much anxiety. But all of that melted away in our first conversation and continued that way through our whole trip. We received multiple picture updates with notes every day we were gone - and they became a family highlight of the trip to see what Susie had been up to. It was very obvious from beginning to end how much love and care they give to the animals in their care. We feel so blessed to have found them - and we know it will make future trips less anxious knowing Susie is in such good hands. Highly highly recommend!

Ed and Noreen are absolutely fabulous! They really care about their doggy guests and treat them like royalty! They sent pictures to us on an ongoing basis to let us know how Mojo was doing - which was great. I would highly recommend Ed and Noreen to anyone seeking a kind and nurturing place to stay! Thanks Ed and Noreen!!!

Noreen and Ed were a wonderful fit for our old Rudy. They were flexible and understanding. They seemed to appreciate our dog's quirks and love him just the way he was. We'll be back! We're so glad we found them!
Noreen is a wonderful host...very perceptive to the needs of my Yorkie Sabrina....we felt very comfortable while we were away and loved the pictures and updates as well! We will definitely be using them again!
I have used Dogvacay numerous times, and Noreen has been the best host I've ever encountered- she is the sweetest and most accommodating! I will definitely be using her again. :)
Cooper and Zoe are both senior dogs so we are always a bit apprehensive when leaving them! However, we felt very relaxed and knew they were in good hands. Noreen sent multiple photos daily and we could see they were being loved on and well taken care of! We will definitely be contacting Ed and Noreen again when our future travel needs require dog care! Thanks so much Ed and Noreen, we really appreciate all you did for our babies!

Noreen and Ed are simply the best at making our little Mia feel loved and cared for. They always send photos and updates putting us at ease about leaving her. Mia is always happy to see them and makes herself right at home. We can't say enough about how wonderful they are!

Excellent sitter. Very flexible, sent lots of photos to us and was very thorough to make sure she knew our pets meal times, what they liked, etc. before we left.
This was a great vacay for Casper. And Mom and Dad got plenty of pictures and updates. Casper was warmly welcomed and treated like part of the family. It was a great experience all around.
As usual, Ed & Noreen bestowed lots of love and affection on Taka during his week-long stay. He was happy & healthy when I arrived to pick him up. Noreen posted lots of pictures for us even though we couldn't access them throughout the week. But we did get them once we got home. Ed & Noreen are without a doubt THE BEST EVER!!!!

As always, our baby, Kashi could not have been in better hands. Ed and Noreen are two very special people. Kashi gets so much attention when he stays with them I think he hates to come home. We never have to worry about Kashi when we leave him with them.

Ed and Noreen are wonderful hosts to Sweet Pea! I feel very comfortable having her stay with them. She has an extremely submissive personality around other dogs, so knowing she's the only one at their home is very comforting to both Sweet Pea and me. Knowing she's not stressing out being around other dogs means I can enjoy my time away from her (not stressing out, myself). I feel Sweet Pea considers Ed and Noreen an extension of family; she gets excited when she sees them. You won't go wrong w/these two caring for your baby (or babies) when you can't.

Simply wonderful as always.
Ellie had a great time with Noreen. Thanks so much.
Noreen and Ed were wonderful hosts for my two minature Goldendoodles. I feel they were very well cared for and loved during the stay. Noreen was great and sent us pictures every day and kept us informed on how my fur babies were doing. If we are in the Orlando area again and in need of host I would hope that Ed and Noreen would be available. Thank you so much Noreen and Ed for making us feel so comfortable and for taking good care of our babies!

Ed and Noreen are amazing caregivers for our little yorkie, Mia! They treat her like one of the family and it gives us peace of mind knowing she is being loved and cared for! They are awesome!!!
Once again Taka has enjoyed a wonderful vacay with his friends Ed & Noreen. He loved the many walks every day as well as all the loving, belly-rubbing attention he gets from them. Ed & Noreen do a marvelouse job of caring for Taka and we love the many photos Noreen sends us to make sure we see how content he is.

Ed and Noreen were great with Harley! This is the second time we left him during our stay in Orlando. Harley was extremely happy and Ed and Noreen took great pleasure in making sure my dog wasn't homesick during his stay with them. The periodic updates of Harley while we were in the theme parks is a great plus. During this period we felt that Harley was in great place, and continued well taken care of.

Noreen and Ed were incredible. Zoe was with them over the Labor Day weekend and they took awesome care of her. They took the extra time to hand feed her. (She has major separation anxiety and stops eating.) Zoe was given extra love and attention to make her feel comfortable. I was sent pictures and I could tell she was happy. I'm thrilled to have found Noreen and Ed. I'm hoping they'll be available whenever I need them again. Thank you Noreen and Ed.

As we have come to realize, Ed & Noreen always do an excellent job caring for Taka in our absence. He is welcomed into the family and treated with tons of love by Ed, Noreen, and all the grand kids. We get lots of pictures, usually with Taka getting belly rubs. Ed & Noreen are THE BEST!!!
Read More...
This was the second time Ed and Noreen watched our standard poodle, Kashi. Kashi has so much fun with Ed and Noreen I think he is sad to come home.
We are so thankful to find such a perfect family for our dog to vacation with. The greatest thing is that Kashi is calm on the ride home. This was never the case when we use to board him. Thanks so much.

Noreen and Ed are wonderful, our dogs love going there, and always happy and not stressed when we pick them up, unlike when we have boarded them at dog kennels, in the past. They send us lots of pics during the stay, and reports on how they are doing. We love this service and will be booking again soon.

Noreen was wonderful with our dogs, she walked them regularly, they had lots of playtime, and they were part of her family during their Vacay. They were very happy and stress free when we picked them up, so we know they were well cared for. We plan to book them in again.

As always, Ed & Noreen welcomed Taka into their home with open arms, lots of love & attention, and most of all warm belly rubs. They took excellent care of Taka while we were away. Even the grandchildren love Taka and care for him as though he was their own. It's very comforting for us when travelling to know Taka is in a warm, loving, kind environment where we know he will be treated properly and cared for correctly. We have the utmost confidence in Ed & Noreen and they have never ever disappointed us. Best of all is that Taka loves them as much as they do him.

It was a wonderful experience. The dogs were well taken care of and the hosts were lovely. They went above and beyond what we expected even bathing the dogs before we picked them up. They sent pictures and updates several times a day so that we could see how well they were doing. We will use them again when the need arises.

We were very pleased with the care Molly received with Ed and Noreen. They picked up right away that she was a bit of a princess and treated her as such.

We got pictures every day(more than one) and were very comfortable that she had settled in.

My only fear was that she was treated so well she may not want to come home.

If given the opportunity we would leave her with Ed and Noreen in a moment.

As usual, Taka's stay with Ed & Noreen was fantastic. He loves being with them and they truly love having him there. He gets lots of walks and playtime and enough loves to fill a shopping cart.
Wow is the only word I can express. This mama was a little worried about leaving her baby girl after meeting Noreen I was so relieved. Lilly had a wonderful time and is looking forward to her next visit.
Ed and Noreen took great care of Quorra throughout the weekend. They gave her plenty of walks, played with her, and spent a lot of time with her. We could tell she was well taken care of because of all of the picture updates. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a reliable dog sitter! They were fantastic!

Ed and Noreen are absolutely wonderful people who truly care about the 'guests' they host. This was our first time leaving our Harley and we were at ease immediately upon meeting Noreen. The daily pictures and updates on their adventures not only made us smile but truly allowed us to enjoy our vacation knowing Harley was in fantastic hands. Thanks Ed and Noreen! When travel takes us back to Orlando, we will definitely reserve a room for Harley in the loving home of Ed and Noreen.

We can't say thanks enough to Ed and Noreen. For the first time our dogs actually had a vacation and the pictures were awesome. We would totally recommend them. Next time we are in the area we will definitely be giving them our dogs.
wow words can not express my gratitude. ill admit I hate having to be away from my girl but after meeting her host I was completely at ease .Ed and Noreen made sure I got plenty of pictures and let me know what she had done for the day. Lilly can't wait for next years vacation. This is such a wonderful family.

I boarded Lilly with Ed and Noreen for about a week and I'm so glad I did. Lilly loved it there! Noreen sent me pics throughout the week of Lilly loving life. I have Lilly on a "strict" diet, all natural food, no human food, no icky stuff. So I was worried about that at first but Noreen was very good and understanding and told me she never gave the dogs anything their owner didn't bring. If I had to board Lilly in that area again, I would 120% use Noreen and Ed again :)

Ed and Noreen took excellent care of our dog. We could tell how content he was when we picked him up. I think he was sad to leave them to come home with us. We are so thankful we found such a great vacation home for him to stay when we go on our vacation.

Can't thank Ed and Noreen enough! Took great care of lady and sent plenty of picture updates. Thank you so much!
We could not have been happier with Noreen and Ed's services! Noreen was so flexible, attentive, kind, warm hearted, I could go on and on. We were nervous about leaving our puppy Bella alone with someone, but boy did she have fun! We absolutely loved all of the photo updates (we got some really amazing pictures thanks to Noreen), and we felt so at ease as a result! Our baby Bella came home exhausted and visibly happy with her time with them. Thank you again and again! We highly recommend them and look forward to using them again in the future!

Ed and Noreen are fantastic dog sitters. I plan to use them again!
Our large Airedale, Olive, had such a terrific time with Ed & Noreen. Snuggled, hugged, belly-rubbed, scratched, brushed, bathed, fussed over, rough-housed with, walked, run, sat by, pampered, sweet-talked, celebrated and enjoyed - Olive never had a moment where she wasn't cared for and loved with excellent style! Bonus: so many photos were taken that she poses like a diva for the camera now. I'm sure Olive will be begging us to take another trip soon, so that she can spend more time playing hard with Ed and afterward have Noreen pet, pat and scratch her until she falls asleep.

Taka's vacation with Ed & Noreen was as we expected - WONDERFUL!! They are fantastic people and their love for Taka is evident the moment they see him. Taka has done a great job of training their grandson on the art of "belly rubs" and they both seem to enjoy the experience - as evidenced by the great photos Ed & Noreen post on DogVacay for us to view. We couldn't ask for better sitters for Taka. We look forward to our next Vacay with Ed & Noreen.

Wonderful pet loving people. Highly recommend them.
Ed & Noreen are absolutely fantastic!!! We couldn't be happier with the care they provided for Taka during a recent vacation. During a "Meet & Greet" it became apparent they were real dog lovers and that Taka would be in good hands with them whle we were gone. He quickly became like another member of their family and he even trained their grandson to give belly rubs. The pictures they posted were a blessing and assured us that Taka was doing well. We've already booked another stay for Taka with Ed & Noreen. Pawsatively wonderful!!!

I am extremely satisfied and highly recommend this wonderful pet sitting service! Noreen and Ed were fabulous with my two doggies and treated them like their own for twelve days. Communication was excellent, and I really appreciated the fast response time to my questions before the booking. I also enjoyed the photos sent to me during the "vacay" as well. I especially appreciated the fact that they provided my dogs with a real, loving home enviornment and even allowed my babies to sleep on the bed with them. It doesn't get any better than this! Oh, but wait, it does! They gave my precious pups a bath before I picked them up! This mama was thrilled! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much, Noreen and Ed! A+++++

Fantastic! We would highly recommend Ed & Noreen. We were very worried about leaving our dog Lola for the week as she is one of the family. The daily updates (as many as three a day) were perfect at reassuring us that Lola was being well looked after whilst we were on vacation. We returned home rested and to a very happy dog!
Thank you very much Ed and Noreen we will definitely be using your services again in the future.

You will not have to worry about your pets if you leave them in Noreen & Ed's care! My Bichons already love her, and you can tell that they dog-sit because they truly love dogs! I love the fact that Noreen sends me pics throughout the day to let me know what they are up to. I am so blessed to have found them and now we are able to explore Florida as much as we like without having to worry about our "kids". I wouldn't consider bringing them to anyone else in the future. They are wonderful, caring people and I am so glad that we found them here on DogVacay!

I had never left my Yorkie, Gracie with anyone other than famly, however since I was traveling out of state for a family reunion, I was in need of a pet sitter. I was extremely nervous about leaving her, but within minutes after meeting Noreen my anxiety was gone. Noreen immedately put my worries to rest and I left with reassurance that Gracie was in good hands. Noreen provided daily updates and pictures and thanks to her I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation. Thanks so much, you are the best!!

This best doggie care facility around! Ed and Noreen go out of their way to make your furry friends happy. They are especially devoted and caring. I think my dogs would like to go back just to visit them again, especially Luci! It was like going to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Noreen treated my dog Siren like one of the family. (Even letting her sleep on the human bed, which Si loved.) Noreen took Si on plenty of walks and sent me wonderful pictures of all the attention she got. (Mostly being her lazy self laying around getting petted.) Siren had a great time and Noreen gave us lots of updates throughout her visit. I highly recommend Ed & Noreen for your dogs vacay. You and your dog will be pleased.

My puppy loved Noreen and Ed and Melrose loved her too! I needed a last minitue reservation and she was prompt and available. My girl is shy around strangers and she settled after a little bit and enjoyed her stay. Ed and Noreen are long time dog lovers with years of amazing experience. I would highly recommend them. Thank you so much!!!

Ed and Noreen were great! Harley loved his stay and we were very pleased with the care he received. We got lots of updates and were very happy to find a nice place for our dog to stay!
I felt like I found my soul sister!
I spent over an hour with Noreen when I dropped Ted E off. We had so much in common and I felt very at ease leaving my little guy in their care. They live in a beautiful gated community with lots of places to go for walks. Unfortunately, about 4 hours later, Ted E didn't quite feel the same way. He was just too sad without his mommy. Ted E is a rescue that I adopted 6 months ago. Evidently, he has some separation anxiety that we need to work on. He is fine when left in our home, but was not happy in an unfamiliar place. He was not enjoying the hotel, and that is why I turned to dogvacay.
I am so thankful to Ed and Noreen for taking such good care of Ted E, so I was able to enjoy dinner with my family while they were visiting from NJ. We will work on Ted E's anxiety and hope to visit with Ed and Noreen the next time we are over in Orlando.
