About Ray

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If the thought of leaving your best friend in a kennel while you vacation, have a movie or game day/night out is enough to make you cancel your plans, welcome! You're our kind of people! We strive to make our home the next best thing to being home for your dog....., and most importantly, lots of love and attention

We are extremely flexible and accommodating with drop off and pick up times. If you already know your travel times, let us know and we can work out a plan for drop off and pick up that makes everyone happy, no stress required!

A short day or an extended stay is a social event in our home! Your dog will enjoy an incredible time with their new friends!

While we let the dogs be dogs, we keep very aware of their behaviours and watch for any changes. It is never a good to let a dog regress or learn a new habit so it is also a top priority to continue to provide a consistent routine and enforce the rules and commands that they follow at home. Please be sure and list commands that are used at home on the Host Info Sheet.

Here are some typical questions we get during the meet and greets, so I've put them here for reference.

Dogs are more than welcome to swim. We will provide all safety gear. No dogs for any reason for any amount of time are ever left alone in the back yard.

All fertilizers, potted plants, flowers, soil and mulch used on the property are certified Pet Safe.

What to bring at drop off:

A completed Host Info Sheet . I will keep it in a file for them for future stays and can update it as necessary.. As booking is confirmed, I will send a link to the DogVacay PDF to complete.

Food and treats

Medicine in original containers with dispensing instructions.

Although your dog will never be left alone in the home or outdoors, please only bring chew toys like antlers or kongs, basically anything that would be safe to give unsupervised.


Not necessary to bring:

Bowls (ours are sanitized stainless steel). Please only bring a bowl if you have a special needs requirement.

Bedding - We offer every dog an orthopedic Kuranda Bed, for their comfort during their stay.

Rawhide (choking risk).

Small stuffed animals or toys can destroy.

Although we take steps that are overly cautious for biting pest and keeping all surfaces and beds sanitized, please be sure your dog is using a topical or pill form of flea,tick and mosquito defense. If you've requested and/or allowed walks we use a very wide human and dog trail down a green belt that is far from all major roads, but is just a house away from my back door. Most of the dogs in my care are plenty worn out with all the fun here, but we are always happy to take yours for a nice, safe walk when requested by you.

I love having Ray dogsit and take care of my dogs when I travel for work and vacations. I would never trust a boarding facility to care for my dogs so Ray has taken care of my dogs when I need him. He's always available, even on short notice and he truly loves my dogs as if they are his own. My dogs look forward to their staycations with Ray and I will never use another dog sitter. He knows and doesn't mind all of their quirks.

Ray is a great dog sitter. He really showed great concern and care for my dog and was very descriptive in his communications of my dog's experience while I was away. By far, he has been the best pet sitter I’ve had. I would really like to keep using him from here on out as my primary pet sitter. My dog really liked him and he took such good care. It was a great experience and I knew upon meeting him, my dog was in excellent hands. I am truly a satisfied and happy client!

Leo had such a great time with Ray and the other dogs! If was my first experience with DogVacay and it couldn't have been better. At a meet and greet, Leo and I met Ray, his son and his dog guests. Ray and his son did a great job introducing Leo to greet, Leo and I met Ray, his son and his dog guests. Ray and his son did a great job introducing Leo to the other dogs and helping them all get comfortable with each other. I could tell they knew how to handle the dogs, and things seemed very calm and controlled. It made me feel comfortable leaving Leo. Also, the pictures, updates and videos Ray sent during his stay kept us laughing. It was very nice and comforting to have regular updates on Leo and his activities. Ray was awesome! We will use him again when we need a caretaker for Leo.

Fantastic. Ray and Alex took really great care of our pup, giving us great updates and pics when we were traveling out of town, and even sending him home with some treats. We are very happy to have found them. One of the best dog sitters we have home with some treats. We are very happy to have found them. One of the best dog sitters we have tried on dogvacay.
