Patricia took excellent care of our beloved Coco while the whole family went back east for a family memorial service. Knowing Coco was happy and safe took a great deal of stress off of us all. We loved getting picture updates of Coco's own vacation adventure!

Our dog Sadie stayed at Patricia's in May for several nights. We were impressed with Patricia's organization and professionalism. She is a true dog lover. All of the other dogs seemed friendly and Sadie was happy and exhausted when we picked her up! We would definitely use Patricia in the future.

Patricia is wonderful! Our dog Ty loves visiting her and always comes home happy. She is great at communicating, really loves the dogs like her own and is always organized upon drop off and pick-up. We are definitely repeat customers.
Patricia has a great set up for the dogs and instantly I felt comfortable with the controls she has in place to ensure all dogs are properly protected and cared for. My dogs had a great stay... At least that's what their smiling faces said when I picked them up. Patricia made sure they were safe, comfortable, and well cared for. I highly recommend her services when you need a place for your dogs to stay.

Our labradoodle just loves going to Patricia's. When we are traveling we always try to get a reservation here.
Patricia is excellent in communication. So glad to have a safe, nurturing place to leave my pup!
Perfect place for my shy but sweet little Chihuahua! Patricia won her over!
Patricia understands dogs, and their owners. It is such a pleasure to know my dog will have fun and be safe in her care. She is a treasure.
Wonderful place for your pup! Perfect set up! Thank you, Patricia!
Terrific!
Patricia was well organized, explained things well, and very good with dogs!!!
Patricia is just amazing with our little baby. Martini is a very shy dog and we would never leave her anywhere else. Patricia would send updates and reassured us while we were away and as a nervous pet mom I really appreciated that. I trust Patricia with martini and I wouldn't consider using anyone else. We plan our vacations around her availability and so thankful we found her!!

Patricia was fatastic! She made me feel very welcome with my 2 little ones. She was very detail, that made me feel very comfortable. I will always hire her to watch my dogs. Very trusting!! Maria
We are so lucky to have found Patricia! One of our dogs is 16 and boarding is really tough on him. He is so calm when we pick him up. Our kids love getting the photos while we are away as well. It always makes their day! Patricia has been so flexible with us and we have done short stays as well as long stays. It is so nice to not have to worry about them while we are away!

Patricia was great! She sent us updates every day that included pics of our dogs having fun and spending time outside. Our dogs were happy to see us when we returned, but we could tell that they also had a good time and were well taken care of by Patricia. We will definitely have Patricia take care of our dogs again!!!!

Great experience with Patricia! Our puppy was taken good care of. Will not hesitated to leave our puppy with Patricia again.
Tucker enjoyed his stay at Patricia's based on all the photos we received from her during our vacation. I always know that Tucker is taken good care of and has lots of fun when he stays with Patricia.
Patricia sent me daily reports and pictures of Lexi during her stay. She called me immediately when Lexi had a seizure. We arranged for my daughter to pick Lexi up and take her to the emergency vet. She was very upset by what had happened, but handled the situation very well. I am deeply sorry that she had to deal with this.

My little Yorkie and I both love Patricia! She is organized, loving and responsible. My little one has spent several days with Patricia, as well as just gone for daycare. She can't wait to get out of the car so she can run up to the front door and see her friends. :)

I would definitely recommend her, and will use her again myself.

Rowdy has stayed with Patricia and her dogs before. As with previous visits, he was a happy dog during the visit. Each time when we pick him up he is happy and wants to come home, but is not traumatized. Patricia watches her visitors closely and we will be back, since she is a great sitter

As always, Cooper had a wonderful time at Patricia's - he really does enjoy his sleep-away camp! And I really appreciate how Patricia always works with my schedule!
I completely trust Patricia, and feel that my dog is in great hands when she is with her.
Patricia is an amazing host! She knows all about taking care of dogs and have a complete set up that allows all of the dogs to be comfortable and enjoy the stay with her! She is amazing in every way. While Bucci (my small beagle) stayed with Patricia, she sent me updates with a daily note with how he was doing and pictures. She have a great place and I can tell my dog was very welcomed and happy with Patricia, during the meet and greet, stay and after pick up. I will definitely recommend her. On top of the love and care she have for every single dog she also have excellent professional skills as well as certificates.
Five stars are not enough to express how much I am pleased with Patricia care and services, definitely 10 stars!
Thank you Patricia for all and Thank you Dogvacay for keeping us linked.

Tessa had 2 wonderful extended stays with Patricia this summer, and it was a great experience for all. The photo updates were adorable, and she came home happy and healthy! We are so grateful to have Patricia nearby.
Patricia is wonderful! I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with her. I get frequent updates and I also like the fact that she has her own dogs and sometimes other dogs. I know my dog will get attention and is able to mingle with other dogs. An A+ adventure.

This was the second time Rowdy stayed with Pat and we could not be more pleased. During his visit we received pictures which clearly showed he had met new doggie friends and was having a good time. Pat is easy to work with and she knows he "stuff". We will certainly use Pat's services again and again.

Patricia G was very accommodating to me and my very nervous Havanese. She was extremely kind and patient. I would love to use her services again in the future. Many thanks!! Kat Murphy & Tippy
This was our first time leaving our dog with Patricia. It was a vary favorable experience and we would readily use her services again as any need arises. She was confident, friendly and helpful and was also flexible in helping us when we had a need for coverage that extended well beyond our original arrangement. Thank you Patricia for your help!

thanks for taking care of Portia. We missed her but knew she was in good hands.
Parker had another great stay at Patricia's. She takes great care that all the dogs are compatible and enjoy their stay. Thank you again Patricia from Parker and I.
This was Charlie's first Dogie Vacay experience with Patricia and friends- he seems to have enjoyed himself very much and looks forward to the next vacation!
Patricia is a wonderful host who truly cares for her guests! Tessa will be spending many days and nights with her this summer and we are so grateful to have this option while we travel. She has a great time playing in the beautiful outdoor space with the other dogs.

This was the second time that our bassett hound Tator, has been to Pat's house. He felt at home right away. It's been about a year and a half since he's been back but that didn't stop him from getting acclimated right away with his surroundings.

Pat sent us Tator's pictures. This is a bonus for us. It assured us while we're away that he's in good hands together with our love bird, Isis.

Will use Pat's service again if we need to.

Thank you, Pat.

Sasha always enjoys her time with Patricia and her other guests
Patricia has a wonderful yard for the dogs, kept us updated with many photos. We appreciate her care and felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her.
Nugget stayed with Patricia again over spring break! He had a wonderful time as usual! We feel so fortunate that we found a place Nugget can call his home away from home! Thank you Patricia!!!
Our Wheaten Terrier had a fun stay at Patricia's! She has a great setup for the dogs with a nice grassy area for play and a a patio area for hanging out when it gets hot. She uses a thoughtful meet and greet to make sure that new dogs will fit in the household. It's great to get her e-mail's with pictures while you are are traveling.

What a relief to have found someone like Patricia to take care of my Parker boy when I am away from home. Her home is now his "home away from home". ♥ She kept me updated on how he was doing -- including some great photos showing him enjoying her nice backyard with his new playmates. We will definitely be returning! Thanks Patricia!!

Teddy loves going to Patricia's house! He has so much fun with the other dogs. Although he is happy to see us when we pick him up, he is also conflicted because he wants to stay with her. We can go away and not worry about how he is doing or feeling.
Tucker has the best time when he goes to Patricia''s house! As soon as he sees the house, he runs right in to play with all of the other dogs and doesn't even say goodbye to me! He comes back healthy and tired from all of his fun.
Patricia is wonderful and was very good with our little cockapoo. She sent us an update with several photos to let us know how Maile was doing. Maile is normally nervous with other dogs but Patricia made her feel comfortable and at home.
I recently moved to the area and was looking for place for my dog Zeus to stay. I checked out many location and was lucky to find Patricia. She took such good care of Zeus during my absences. She get's 5 stars all the way!
Patricia was so great with my little dog Zeus. She sent me pictures every day and he had such a fun time playing with the other dogs. I totally recommend her to anyone. I know my dog was well taken care while I was gone. Thank you! Laura
Axel and Willie always seem anxious to go to Patricia's. They are relaxed and tired when they come home.
Sasha always has fun
always a fun time socializing with other doggies
This is the first time we have used Patricia at Dogvacay and it certainly won't be the last! We did a meet and greet with Patricia and our dog which went well. Patricia even agreed to let us come a second time to firm up the relationship. Patricia was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. She emailed and sent pictures while we were away letting us know how Payton was doing. The first night Payton was a little uneasy and Patricia got up with him and gave extra care to him which I really appreciated! We will be seeing each other again for sure!!!

Patricia was great. We did a very thorough meet and greet and were very impressed with her home and the facilities for the dogs. While we were gone we got numerous updates and pictures on how the dogs were doing. Patricia's home is close to us and very convenient. I now feel that I have found someone where the dogs can stay whenever we take a vacation.

Sasha was happy that I came to get her but I think she was torn because she had so much fun with the other doggies! She always comes home clean which is a real plus.
Patricia was an amazing host. She sent me pictures every day of our beloved puppy, Teddy , playing with her dogs. She handled giving him medicine and made us feel so at ease. Teddy loved his stay at her house.
Patricia did a great job with my boys. They came home relaxed and happy.
Sasha had fun with the other dogs and Patricia. Always a good experience.
Sasha was happy staying over with Patricia and her furry friends.
We were very nervous leaving our baby with somebody as she's very shy and nervous around other dogs but Patricia made us feel so comfortable and able to go on our vacation not worrying about martini. We enjoyed the updates and pictures and were so thankful to have martini taken care of. We will definitely be rebooking with Patricia soon.

Patricia was such a great host for my little guy Comet over the holidays. This was his second time visiting her home. She kept me updated frequently with adorable pictures and took great care of Comet. I am very comfortable with Patricia and her nice home. I would definitely recommend her for dog sitting!

Sasha had a very Merry Christmas at Patricia's house. She wags her tail when Patricia comes to greet her and we can go away knowing that she's in good hands.
Excellent experience from beginning to end! Even received an e-mail with photos of my pup playing with new friends. Thanks, Patricia, for providing excellent care.
This was our 2nd DogVacay experience with Patricia and once again, we couldn't be happier! When we picked them up, Patricia handed over our doggie belongings and in our bag, she had included a lovely holiday card and a box of holiday decorated dog treats...very sweet! We wouldn't think about using anybody else to watch our sweet little girls.

Sasha walks briskly into the house with Pat when we arrive and has a good time with the other dogs. We feel very relaxed when she is there and don't worry a bit !!
As always, Cooper had a wonderful stay at Patricia's. He always gets so excited when he arrives and has tons of fun playing with Patricia's dogs (especially Mei Mei).
This was Sasha's first visit with Patricia.

She is not only a warm and friendly person but it is obvious that she is very professional and enjoys having doggie guests at her home. She has a very special incite to the doggies' personalities which is fun to watch.

I found her home and yard immaculate with no pet odors which is very pleasant to experience.

We will definitely bring Sasha to her in the future.

My first time leaving my 2 girls (poodle mix and yorkie) with Patricia -- I couldn't be happier! Patricia is incredibly attentive and was very loving to my dogs. When I arrived to pick them up, they were happy to see me; but, honestly, I think they would have been just as happy to have stayed another day with Patricia :) I was very pleased to receive incredibly detailed "doggie" reports from her (with a bunch of photos) every day. The photos alone showed my pooches were having a great time with Patricia. We're already booked for upcoming dates. So say the least, we're very very happy to have found Patricia and will absolutely continue to book with her.

Patricia treats Fritz like a member of her family. I never have to worry about him and she keeps me updated with pictures. On my recent trip I had to visit my daughter who was ill. When I left Fritz with Patricia I knew he was in good hands. Thank you Patricia for always taking such good care of Fritz!

Patricia was absolutely wonderful with my little girl, Babe. I was away for an extended trip and was quite nervous about leaving her for so long as she tends to have a bit of separation anxiety. Patricia's relaxed and easy manner really put both Babe and I at ease. Plus, we were able to visit Patricia's home ahead of time and to make sure it was a good fit.

Throughout my 3 week trip, Patricia provided almost daily updates with pictures! It was always a treat to open my email and see a note from Patricia and a picture of Babe.

I will definitely call Patricia again when Babe needs another DogVacay!

This was Teddy's first time being away from home, but Patricia did a great job of making him feel comfortable in her home. She also sent us lots of pictures of Teddy playing and having a good time.
Another AMAZING stay with Patricia! She is the kindest and most loving lady. Bear LOVED his stay! I also want to thank her for her understanding when our schedule changed! We are so lucky to have found her! GREAT GREAT GREAT!
Patricia (and her two wonderful pups) is an amazing host! From the moment my dog, Harvey, stepped through the threshold of her clean, cozy environment Patricia was very professional, friendly and loving toward Harvey. Her back yard/park area was a pleasure for Harvey, who visited her for over a week and was very happy his entire stay.

Another fabulous stay for our labradoodle
Our beagle mix Jaxx absolutely LOVES going to stay with Patricia! He is so excited to get there and always exhausted when he gets home, which is great for us. We love that Patricia treats him like her own and is pretty flexible with us. Can't say enough good things about Patricia!

Lulu, our 18month labradoodle had the best 10 days. Patricia allowed her to play with her own dogs and the others who were staying with her, she had enough space to run and play with all of her newly made friends and seems to have loved every minute. Patricia sent us pictures of Lulu and her friends while we were away and kept us informed of the fun she was having.

Patricia is very flexible with dates and very accommodating to any particular needs. We have now used her twice and have a third time booked in August and would highly recommend her.

Rowdy visited Pat over a long 4th of July weekend. Without hesitation his visit with Pat was the best decision we have made. Pat understands dogs and their needs. Although Rowdy was happy to come home, he had a great time. He did not show and stress or trauma. The pictures Pat sent with notes help us easy our tension about his visit. They showed that he was having a great visit. We will call Pat again for future visits.

Patricia is Wonderful! She is so kind and knowledgable! We know our fur kids are in great hands with Patricia! She has a lovely home and beautiful yard for exploring with a nice big lawn to run around in! In addition, she was flexible and able to keep our "kids" when our plane was delayed for our return flight. Excellent highly recommend!

Another fabulous stay for our Izzy. Patricia has watched our labradoodle numerous times and everytime its been great.
Another great vacay for Henry! We highly recommend Patricia. She's the best! Elizabeth E.
Cooper had a great time at Patricia's. He played with friends and discovered that he does like sleeping in a crate (didn't know that!). It helped me to know he was safe and cared for.
We have been leaving our dog Sasha with Patricia for over a year and it is always a wonderful experience. Patricia sends us pictures with notes during our time away so we never feel too far from home. We feel blessed to have found someone who takes such wonderful care of our dog!

What a wonderful experience! It was so nice to leave my dogs with Patricia, rather than leaving them in a kennel. I will definitely be using Patricia again in the future!
Cooper had a wonderful stay with Patricia. He enjoyed playing outside with the other dogs, and hunkering down inside when it got hot outside. Patricia was great in sending daily photos and notes about Cooper's activities while I was gone. I looked forward to those daily emails. Patricia was very flexible in setting up the drop off and pick-up times, and works to make sure that all her boarders get along.

Nugget had a lovely time at Patricia's! It was so wonderful to receive pictures of Nugget while we were on vacation. I am so glad we found Patricia and Nugget will definitely be visiting again!
This was Lu's first time staying with Patricia. Lu is an older dog, so I was concerned about her interactions with other dogs. She did really well! Patricia has two friendly doggies who seem very comfortable with other dogs. Lu seemed to get along with everyone. I think Patricia's is a very comfortable environment. I was totally happy with having Lu stay with her and D.D and MeiMei. And I really appreciated the pictures of Lu enjoying her vacation from us!

Another fabulous stay for our dog at Patricia's.
We have an older dachshund who has not spent a lot of time away from home. The kids are out of the house now and I needed to find a nice place for our dog, as I travel a lot for my job. Patricia is the perfect dog sitter...she has a wonderful backyard, takes time to play with our dog, he is content and not stressed out from being in an environment where there are lots of animals and has to sleep in a cage....I recommend her HIGHLY!

My dog enjoyed her stay with Patricia!
This was Keiki's second time at Patricia's home. I love taking her there. The house has a large grass yard, for Keiki to run and play with Patricia's two dogs. Patricia was very accommodating, when we had a change in plans at the last minute. Looking forward to Keiki spending more time with her friends - in the near future.

My dog is well taken care of by Patricia. She comes home tired! I get pictures and an update which is much appreciated. I feel very comfortable leaving her there.
Patricia was a wonderful. We had a good meet and greet experience and my labradoodle was happy at pick-up. House was clean and organized and property good for dogs. Patricia is kind and organized woman with an obvious love of dogs. Will definitely use again.

This was our first time using this site and program. It was so easy and Patricia was awesome! Roxy loved being there and the seeing the updates of her playing with other dogs was great to see. We will be sending Roxy to Patricia's whenever we go out of town.

Cooper loves going over to Patricia's - it's like a sleepover for dogs. And as the owner, I really appreciate Patricia's flexibility and concern for my pet. She keeps me up to date as to his activities and understands the nature of travel when I'm out of town. I really appreciate what she does!

Starbuck, our 11 year old Std. Poodle, had a wonderful time! It was like going to Doggie day camp. Patricia was very accommodating and attentive to his needs. She also sent up pictures that were entertaining as well as giving up peace of mind.
She is the best. Can't say enought about her.
We all love her and don't know what we would do without her.
She is fabulous! We love her and best of all Caly loves her. She turned around to go back when we picked her up
Patricia is an absolute gem! Bennie loves his time spent with Patricia and her well mannered and playful pups. Patricia is very responsible, caring and goes the extra mile to make sure Bennie has a comfortable stay.
My nine year old labradoodle was so well cared for in such a lovely and loving environment. Patricia's own dogs are friendly and sociable. The house and yard are perfect and Patricia is super. I plan on having my dog come back soon!

We are so excited to have found Patricia as a resource to watch our beloved beagle mix. He has such a great time there and Patricia takes great care of him!
Patricia is the best. We cannot say enought about her. She loves our dog and sends us emails with pictures while we are gone. We are going on a three week vacation in March and she will be taking care of Caly. We will leave without a worry because we know how well she will be taken care of.

Tobey had an amazing time at Patricia's home with her other guests and her own two dogs, DeeDee and MeiMei. Patricia is a very thorough and considerate dog sitter, preferring to meet and greet with the owner and the dog ahead of time. We enjoyed chatting during the initial visit while the dogs all ran around her back yard that we ended up staying for quite some time!

Tobey is a special needs dog who was very well taken care of. I could tell he had a blast as Patricia sent frequent photos and updates.

I look forward to the next vacation or work trip when I could leave Tobey with Patricia, DeeDee and MeiMei.

We are SO HAPPY to have found Patricia! We have never left our little baby boy overnight. Patricia understood our worries and set us at ease. She emailed us photos while we were gone and gave us detailed updates. She took care of Bear's special diet and potty needs. Bear was so happy the whole time and LOVED every minute of it. Thank you so much Patricia!! Bear will be visiting again very soon! I highly recommend Patricia to anyone! You are a true dog lover and we thank you for your kindness.

We used Patricia for the first time last weekend and were very happy with the daily updates and pictures of Tucker's experience at her home! Patricia has a great big back and side yards where tucker played for hours with her dogs and another boarder. Tucker was pooped when he came home which means that he got his needed exercise! We will definitely send Tucker back to Patricia's next time we go away.

Great doggie day care and overnight care in a very convenient location.
Teddy spent New Year's Eve at Patricia's home while we went out and played. He was so excited when he got to her front door and heard her cute dogs barking, I thought he would break down the door to get in! He loves his visits at Patricia's house, and we love knowing that he is safe and VERY happy!

Patricia was terrific! Our original plans for our dog fell through; we were desperate to find a doggy sitter at the last minute. Patricia was able to take our reservation and was an absolutely great dog sitter. We hope to be able to book Patricia again as our doggy sitter.

My dogs were comfortable there from the first time we stopped by to meet Patricia and see her home. She has good indoor space for dogs to spread out and a great yard for them to run around in and explore. She also sent pictures of them and a note to let me know how they were doing. I'll use her anytime I need a safe and fun place for my dogs when we're away.

My little Princes Mimi had another great visit with Patricia! 4 paws up! I always feel at ease when Princes Mimi stays with Patricia.
This was our first time to use the services of Pat.

We are glad we found her. Our bassett hound, Tator and our love bird, Isis, found a "home away from home" for about 7 days.

We found it very helpful and very reassuring when she sent us photos and updates of how our two pets were doing under her care. It relieved us of our own anxieties.

This is just the start of our future relationship with Pat. :-)

We don't have any second thoughts of recommending her to dog parents searching for a host.

If only Tator and Isis could talk, I am sure they will both agree with us. :-)

Patricia was great! She took wonderful care of my Curly. I enjoyed this first experience and highly recommend her. She is also flexible and kind. The home is clean and spacious with a large yard where the dogs run and play. The pictures and updates were wonderful. I was able to relax knowing that Curly was well taken care of. I will definitely leave him with her in the future. Thank you Patricia.

Cooper had a wonderful time with Patricia and her two dogs. It was as close to being at home for him as possible and I appreciated Patricia's flexibility! He will definitely be back for another visit.
Patricia is a wonderful pet sitter! Every time I have left Fritz - I never had to worry about him. Thank you Patricia for taking such good care of him. I am so glad that Fritz has another place to call "home".

My husband and I have a "Special Needs" pooch, and Patricia, did everything we requested of her. She is very professional and organized, and on "Meet and Greets", she is sensitive to the clients coming to meet her, and introduces the dogs slowly, and with consideration.

Patricia's furry kids, are adorable !!! They are both beautiful, and well cared for, and that was a comfort to us.

She is warm, personable, sensitive, organized, responsible, and conscientious. She sends pictures, and notes, which we appreciated as well.

She has a lovely home, and yards, so your pets will have a wonderful home environment, which is what we were also looking for. She cares and understands the needs of the canine species, in general, and it feels reassuring to know that.

I would definitely refer animal lovers in search of a caring pet care provider to Patricia. She will do her best to reassure safety, and good care, so you can enjoy your vacation time, and know your furball is in good hands.

I use Patricia for doggie day care. My dog has a great time in her lovely yard chasing squirrels and playing with her dogs. Very convenient location next to 24 and near BART for commuting to work. Highly recommended.
My English Bulldog, Tuffy, is my constant companion. Dog Vacay hosts help me keep her happy on travel days that require me to attend to business matters. Recently, Tuffy spent a day in the company of Patricia in Lafayette, CA. Tuffy was completely relaxed in her care. Patricia offers a warm and loving home for any animal who just wants to be loved. I recommend her highly, and hope to leave Tuffy in her care when I am in the area next spring.

Patricia is a blessing to us. We found her several months ago and now use her consistently when we are out of town. When we pull off the free, our dog barks until we let her out at Patricia's house. We go away knowing that our beloved, Caly is in a loving environment.

Thank you, Patricia

Patricia made it possible for my husband and I to travel without us worrying about our Ginger. Patricia is extremely professional and asks the necessary question to make sure your pet has a satisfactory and cozy stay with her. She periodically sent us photo updates which really made our day, and from the photos we could tell our girl was happy spending time at Patricia’s. There is no other person I would rather have than Patricia to take care of my dog, she was great! We are so glad and releived we found her!

During our Meet-and-Greet, Patricia took great care in keeping the dogs separate in order to have my pup acclimate to the new environment. She started to introduce the other dogs slowly as to not overwhelm my dog! She really does know what she is doing and I love that her house and yard are large enough for all of the dogs to play in. She also takes great care in ensuring that the dogs are in a safe area, even when she has to leave to run an errand. I would not hesitate to leave my dog with her, again!

Patricia was great with Comet. She kept me informed about him and posted pictures. She has a nice home and yard for the dogs to play. I would highly recommend her and use her again to board Comet. Thanks!!
We feel blessed to have found Patricia! We have never left our two mini dachshunds with anyone overnight and were so worried how they would be. Patricia understood our anxieties and set us at ease. She emailed us pics while we were gone and gave us updates. They seemed to have had a great time and our shy one even seemed more open and happy (tail wagging non stop even out in busy public streets where normally she was a little scared). Thank you so much Patricia!! We will definitely be letting our babies come visit again.

Sasha just came back from another wonderful visit with Patricia. Patricia provides quality care and Sasha always comes home happy and well cared for.
Patricia is, in my opinion, the best doggy sitter I have ever had for MacDougal. I appreciated the pictures and little anecdotes from her during my trip and I never worried about my little guy.

MacDougal was a happy boy staying with her and her two doggies. We will definitely use her again.

My little Princess Mimi had another "Pawsome" stay with Patricia and her two dogs! Mimi always gets excited when gets to Patricia's house. I have peace of mind on my trip knowing that my little girl is happy & having fun with Patricia.
Henry had so much fun that we need to find another reason to have him stay with Patricia sooner rather than later. Thanks!
My little Princess Mimi had a PAWSOME time
at Patricia's house! She is loved and cared for
by Patricia. When she got out of my car and
saw she was at Patricia,s house Mimi got
excited and ran to her door. She loves being
with Patricia's two dogs not to mention helping
to keep Patricia company during the day.
I call Patricia Princess Mimi's" Fairy Dog Mother"1

Keiki is a young dog with lots of energy. Patricia has 2 dogs that Keiki could run and play with. Good match. Patricia loves dogs and it shows. We were very happy with the care that was given to Keiki. Would have no problem at all, leaving her with Patricia for another doggie vacation.

I found Patricia to be such a find! She made me feel comfortable from the start,. She asked good questions about my dog Truffles, making me sense that she truly cared.
Her home was perfect for my dog, especially since she has dogs and there were others spending the night.
I will definitely use Patricia again!

My two dogs just spent the weekend with Patricia and they absolutely loved her and her two dogs. I felt very confident about leaving them with her and I really appreciated that she took the time to meet us before their stay so that we could get to know each other. Patricia's yard is beautiful and the it is the perfect spot for all the dogs to play together. I will definitely book with her again and I know that my dogs couldn't have been happier!

Fritz had a great time! Patricia is a very caring person and I felt so relaxed leaving Fritz with her.
I was able to enjoy the trip knowing that he was being taking care of and treated like a member of the family. Her yard is wonderful and Fritz really enjoyed being with the other dogs. I would highly recommend Patricia and I am looking forward to scheduling another "vacation" for Fritz.

Patricia was wonderful with my daughter's young, very active dog. Ripley was happy in the nice grassy yard playing fetch with Patricia and running around with her two great dogs. I loved having the dog in good hands while I was at work and my daughter was on vacation. I would definitely recommend Patricia to anyone who wants daycare or overnights for their dog. She's organized and businesslike and has the perfect house and yard.

Teddy loves to stay at Patricia's house. Her dog MeiMei and Teddy are perfectly matched and they play all the time. Patricia is great at sending pictures and e-mails to let me know how it's going. When I pick him up he's not sure whether he wants to go home or stay there. The whole situation takes a huge load off of my mind.

So far MacDougal has only stayed with Patricia and her dogs twice for day visits only. It was very telling when we arrived for the second visit, MacDougal was very excited to go into her house.
I feel I can trust her and will definitely use her for overnight boarding when the need arises.

Patricia is wonderful! Our dog was so happy playing with Patricia's dogs and we loved getting email and photo updates. The yard is a great space for dogs and we felt confident our dog was safe, happy and entertained while she was there. Highly recommend!

She is fabulous, we would not use anyone else. We have already recommended dogvacay on several occasions.
Patricia is very easy to deal with. She is flexible and conscientious. Her home is nice and comfortable, with a very nice yard. I felt very comfortable leaving my 2 dogs with her and will definitely use her again.
Oliver had a great time and I had peace of mind. Patricia was fabulous! Puppy came home happy and tuckered out from his 7 day play date. Thanks Patricia!
This was Sasha's second time with Patricia and we couldn't be happier with the care and attention she received. Sasha is an "only child" so she really enjoys getting to play with Patricia's two wonderful dogs.
I was very pleased with my experience at Patricia's. She made sure that I was comfortable with leaving my little Princess with her and her 2 dogs. We had a Meet & Greet first and then was able to see her house, yard and to meet her two pooches.
This was our first experience with DogVacay and we couldn't have been happier. Patricia was completely reliable and very conscientious, so we were able to enjoy our vacation without having to worry about our pets. We will certainly use her again in the future.
