About Uy

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been around dogs all my life. I raised my two Pomeranians, Rocky and Teddy, since they were puppies so I am very experienced in that department. While they may be a little vocal at first, they settle in quickly and are compatible with all dogs that they have met.

My house has plenty of space for the dogs to run around and play, both inside and out. Inside, I have sectioned off areas for dogs to play and relax. I will only crate when the owner directs me to. Outside, I have a great fenced-in yard that the dogs can run around in safely.

I have been on DogVacay since near the beginning and have hosted many stays. My many great reviews reflect that I always treat visiting dogs as if they were my own.

While my calendar is pretty accurate in terms of availability, please do check with me first before making any reservations or even Meet-n-Greets. Sometimes I have pending bookings that are not reflected on the calendar.

Since I board both male and female dogs, I cannot board ones that are not neutered or spayed.

You will find me very easy going, flexible, and trustworthy. I look forward to meeting you and your pups!

FYI, my name is pronounced WE :)

Two significant qualities that I found incredibly valuable and the reasons why I will be a repeat customer include: 1) Uy's prompt response to questions, requests, concerns via dogvacay or phone or text messaging with regard to scheduling, inquiring the status of my dog's welfare, or requesting photos. He is so prompt it's as if I am right in his home. 2) His laid-back yet conscientious approach to caring for my dog. My dog had a poop-incident--to no fault of his own--and I didn't have time to clean up the mess as I was on my way to Uy's house. I explained to Uy. He made no disapproving facial expression. Instead he calmly stated, "No problem, let's wash him off in the backyard," to which he did. My dog was not only clean but Uy was also not upset. He helped me clean him up with being agitated. Super thumps up to him. Thanks Uy. You are the best!

Our dog Thunder loves going to Uy house. He takes great care of Thunder.
Great as always!
It was awesome! From the moment Murphy our daschund met him we were both glad we met him. I was at complete ease leaving him and will use Uy again!
Another wonderful connection with Uy and once again very happy dogs. They love visiting him and it pleases me he is so kind and loving with them.
It was great. Took great care of Taz, gave him all his meds and kept us informed with pics and videos. Would def recommend and use again
Chepito had a wonderful time staying with Uy who has a large backyard and two very friendly dogs of his own. We actually extended our vacation a day and Uy was very responsive as we coordinated. We'll definitely bring Chepito hack next time we are out of town. Thanks Uy!

Uy was great and Lola had a wonderful time!
This was our 7 month old puppy, Dewey's, first time away from home and we were very nervous about how he would do! But Uy put all of our fears to rest, he is the greatest! Dewey had the best time with Uy and his "pack", and he was happy and healthy when we picked him up. Uy responded quickly and with photos while we were away and missed our puppy. I'm sure that Dewey is looking forward to his next stay with Uy! :)

Another great experience with Uy! Annie comes home happy and I am grateful.
This is the third time we have had Uy board our dogs. Uy is very fair with his pricing, flexible when it comes to pickup and drop off, and quickly responds to messages. He has a nice sized home and yard that my two Peiby's seem to love. He will definitely be my first choice for future boarding needs.

Uy was great! He sent a photo to me for Enzo's weekend stay and Enzo came home totally exhausted. He must have had a lot of fun with all the other dogs!
We were very happy with Uy. Our dog came back happy and healthy and we loved getting the photo updates. We will definitely use Uy again in the future.
Our dogs' stay with Uy was our first experience with DogVacay (after 10 years of boarding elsewhere), and I admit to having qualms about how our dogs would adjust to the change. Our "meet & greet" with Uy immediately put all worries to rest! He has a kind & gentle manner and a genuine love for dogs that our pets immediately sensed. His spacious back yard and indoor set-up ensure that visiting pets have plenty of play-time are feel safe & well-cared for. Our dogs clearly enjoyed their stay & we definitely plan to return!

Uy has cared for our dog Hunter twice now. Whether it was a short or long visit, he took great care of Hunter. Uy is clearly a competent, kind, and calm dog lover. As long as Uy is in business we will continue to have him take care Hunter. Thank you Uy!!!!

Uy was awesome! I know Shing had a great time while we were away since Uy sent us adorable pics of our pup playing outside and living the good life. Thank you!
So glad I found Huy..My dogs thoroughy enjoyed their stay. Huy sent pics of my babies at play often and was so gracious in acommodating me when I needed to extend their stay at the last minute. Will be using Huy again and again..
Great job with an energetic young dog! We will definitely be using Uy again!
Uly is awesome. Bells loves going there. Uly is very flexible and accommodating.
Lucas loved his weekend full of friends and fun. It was our first Dogvacay and will certainly use Uy again.
Uy was very prompt in communicating with me to set up the reservation, and coordination drop off and pick up times. Beau got to play with other small dogs and greet some large dogs, and he was very happy when I picked him up! I would definately board with Uy again!

Our dogs are always happy when they come home from Uy's.
Our poodle always does well staying with Uy.
Uy was responsive and helpful. Took great care of our young puppy. Will definitely be asking him to look after her again.
We and our pups love Uy! I think they wish we had a nice yard like he does. We will definitely use him again in the future.
Our dog Thunder had a great time at UY house. It was great to get pictures and a video of Thunder while we were away.
I received great updates on my pets' stay with Uy. He always kept me up to date on their stay and provided me with pics. I would have no hesitation dropping the "kids" off with their new friends anytime! Great job!
Awesome host. I dropped my pet early in the morning and picked her up late at night, and the host was very accommodating.
Went excellent for my girl Maddie. Thank you Uy.
While my Annie was staying with Uy, I was asked by my firm to extend my trip an extra night. I contacted Uy who was happy to keep her another night to accommodate my need. He is always quick to respond to requests and I have absolute confidence in his care of Annie. I'm grateful to have him and DogVacay to turn to.

I called Uy last minute to care for Annie. As before, he was quick to respond to my request and when I dropped Annie off she was excited to be back! I have a very high level of confidence that Annie is well cared for while with Uy.
Uy was very responsive and friendly. We did a meet and greet before Annie's visit and I felt very comfortable leaving Annie in his care. She had a great time and I would both highly recommend Uy and would definitely use him in the future. Excellent!!
Happy pups going and content and sad to leave. Thanks again Uy !! The best.
Each time the dogs' excitement build farther and father from Uy's house. They KNOW where they are going and barely wait until the shut the car engine of ot run out of the car to his great back yard. They are very happy as am I.

All very very nice. The dogs do see the visit as a vacation and Uy is very flexible and thoughtful.
We have been using petvacay for a long time and love it! We have a regular petvacay sitter whom we love but she was not available so we contacted Uy. First, he is very responsive, quick and flexible in terms of all communications and visits. It is quickly apparent that Uy is extremely comfortable and caring. Our dogs (one of whom is usually very fearful) felt instantly at ease, responding to Uy's easy-going and calm demeanor. Uy has a wonderful, pet-friendly set-up in his home and a fabulous, fenced-in back yard, which our dogs loved so much! In fact, our girls had so much fun that it was sometimes difficult getting them to come inside! LOL!!! Uy provided exceptional care and communication, and our dogs remained safe and extremely happy. We highly recommend this sitter and will definitely use him again! Great job, Uy, and thank you!!!

My dog had a great one night stay at Uy's home. I even got a cute picture! We are booking Uy in the near future.
Uy was great to work with and our dogs love his yard. We will be using him again next weekend while we are away for a wedding.
Scout and Harper had another great stay. Thanks, Uy!
Both my two year old Pomeranians were happy and healthy when I picked them up. Uy kept me updated on their stay with great pictures and videos.
Uy was pleasant and very accommodating for our drop-off and pick-up times, was willing to follow our dog's schedule for feeding and treats, and had a convenient fenced-in area outside. Callie did well while she was staying with Uy and had the company of his own dogs during the day when he was at work. Her treat jar was left behind at Uy's when we picked Callie up, and he was very kind to mail it to us, since we live in another state and were in the DC area visiting family (one of whom is allergic to dogs). We recommend Uy highly.

A great experience for dog and owner alike. Uy was friendly, accommodating, and responded quickly. His space is clean with tons of safe space for animals to frollick or lounge!
excellent as always !!
My dogs had a great time staying with Uy! They felt well cared for and comfortable. We will def be back!
We had to book last minute but Uy was very accommodating and also flexible with pickup time. Even though Charlotte's stay was short, we received videos throughout her stay! We will definitely be back- Thank you so much.
Uy was amazing. We had to extend our stay and he was incredibly accommodating. I would definitely recommend him. Our dog had so much fun.
Thanks, Uy, for hosting Molly once again. It was good to know she was in such good hands. See you again in the future.
fantastic again. The dogs love visiting !!
Joon had a blast. She's been sleeping non-stop the past two days. Uy sent great photo updates and was quick to respond to any questions. Would keep Joon with him again, no questions.
Uy was flexible regarding schedule and easy to work with. He cared well for my dog Pluto and we would definitely look to Uy first next time we need to find a place for Pluto to stay.
Friendly very helpful glad he could take W and drop her off (can't drive -- surgery). I think she was disappointed to leave!
Uy is a sweet guy who takes very great care of any dog. My wheaten terrier is not the easiest of puppies to deal with but I'm glad Uy still managed. My pup came back happy and healthy as she was going in to stay with him. He is very trustworthy and I will continue to return my lovely pup!
Thank you Uy!

Uy has been Maggie's home-away-from-home for more than a year now, and we couldn't be happier!
My dogs get so excited and happy when the realize we are going to Uy's house. They are well taking care of and loved and my mind is fully at ease when visiting Uy. Thank you.
Excellent extended stay this time, as usual. Great video and photo updates. Thanks Uy and see you next time!
This was the first time wevhad Sunny with Cathy for a few days. She kep us informed and sent pictures of Sunny getting along with her dogs. Overall, she was excellent.
great, as always!
My experience with Uy was great! He is very responsive and accommodating. His video and photo updates let us know our dog was having a great time running around and playing with the other dogs in his big backyard. I would recommend Uy to a friend and will definitely be bringing my dog back to stay with him in the future!

Zephyr spent 24 hours at Uy and had fun playing with the other dogs. All went very well, Uy is quite experienced with dogs and was very accomodating.
Red came back very tired which is good. He was as happy as could be the next day which was great. Usually it takes him a few days to adjust again but he was his old self in no time. Uy is so popular we were unable to book for the next few times we needed dog vacay. Hopefully we will get to use him again.

Thank you so much! Despite a relatively long stay, and Bam's special needs/requirements, Uy obviously made Bam comfortable and happy. Thanks again. Hiromi
I'd give Uy 6 stars if it were an option. He was totally accommodating, caring, and responsive in boarding our two dogs. I was especially concerned about the younger one who is not well socialized. He made excellent progress with her, kept me informed, and replied promptly whenever I contacted him to find out how they were doing. A superlative host that we'll use again without a moment's thought.

Uy was great--he accepted Callie, our foxhound rescue, without a meet and greet and on fairly short notice. His home is easy to get to--not far off of the DC beltway. He obviously loves dogs, has a fenced yard for them to play in and even has various dog beds in his living room. He inadvertently forgot to give us Callie's treat jar on the day we picked her up, and he was kind enough to mail it to us back in Ohio! We not only recommend him but hope we can have him host Callie again when we are visiting our family members in the DC area. :)

Uy was great. He was accessible and my dogs came home super tired from playing in his big back yard. I will definitely use Uy next time we need dog sitting.
As usual Uy did a great job - this time administering 2 different kinds of medication and dealing w/a cone collar! We all love Uy!
Excellent. My dogs get so excited when the see us getting closer to his house. They enjoy the visit and behave better for him than for me. So grateful and appreciative
Uy is a great guy. He seems to do a great job!
Uy was great again. He sent us an adorable picture on one day and a heartwarming video of our pup playing with another dog on the other day. He was also flexible with pick-up times. We'll use him again!
I have been leaving my little boy with Uy for 2 years now everytime I am about to go on vacation no matter if its last minute or planned in advance he is always avaliable to help out and take care of my baby. I am so so happy to finally find a person who I can trust to leave my dog with. Uy is a very nice and generous person and my dog loves him, everytime I go pick up my dog I can see and feel he had a good time with Uy. I definitely recommend him to whoever wants to leave their little ones. Thank you Uy for all your help

Another great stay for Jordan at Uy's. Uy was very patient and flexible when our flight home was delayed; it was so nice to not have to worry at all about how he was doing!
Another excellent stay with Uy - Kylie always enjoys going there. We have booked our next stay already!
Uy is great.
Our labradoodle Juno had a great time playing with the other dogs in Uy's care this weekend. Uy sent pictures and videos to show us her playing in his yard. I like that Uy comes home in the middle of the workday to check on the dogs and he also allowed a late pickup when our flight was delayed.
Read More...
Uy was terrific. He took great care of Jordan, and Jordan clearly loved the spacious backyard and having several "friends" to play with. We already have another reservation for Jordan to stay with him soon.
Uy was great and sent us a video and a picture while we were gone. My dog looked so happy in the video, I know I don't have to worry when he's there.
Uy was super flexible with drop off and pick up. Love that he's got a yard. Our dog came home very tired.
Awesome, as usual!
Another great stay with Uy! He is flexible and professional - we had an emergency and had to pick up our dog a few hours late. Really appreciate his excellent service.
Uy was incredibly accommodating in Sobe's first stay . Made me feel good knowing my baby is in great care. Uy sent me text and photo update. Truly appreciated!
Uy is fabulous and is so understanding about my dysfunctional dog. I have a dog that is very nervous and scared and Uy is so gentle and makes him feel safe and secure. I count my lucky stars that Uy continues to be host on DogVacay. Thanks Uy!!!
Our dog had a great time with the other dogs there!! We also loved getting pictures of him.
Great host!
Excellent stay as always
Uy did a great job taking care of Paulie during my trip. Never a worry.
Uy is simply awesome. Emergency situation, stuck at Chicago airport for 2 days - Uy provided quick reassurance that our pup would be taken care of. Another great stay!
Excellent service! Have recommended Uy to friends with dogs!
Thunder seemed to be very happy with his stay at Uy house.
Uy sent us pictures and video of Thunder. When we sent a message to Uy about Thunder he got right back to us. It was nice to see the pictures and video of Thunder playing with the other dog's Uy was watching. He seemed to get along with the other dogs. If we need another Dogvacay we will use Uy.

Uy was a great host to Bella. Great set up and no worries on our part. Will definitely be back.
We had a great experience with him. We will come back again.
Highly pleased and a wonderful person. All worked out well. My dogs seemed very happy -- I sure was.
Uy is so great! He treats my dog like he would one of his own, Mako gets great care and loves to play with the other dogs there as well. Uy gives the dogs free rein over most of his house and has a great backyard. He is so flexible about drop offs and pick ups, he even dropped Mako off once to make it easier for me. I can't say enough good things about Uy except that I need to make sure there is always enough room for Mako. I don't usually write reviews but this is really well deserved.

Yu is a great dog sitter and we picked Luke up safe and sound. Yu sent me a video of him playing in the yard with another dog and that made us feel comforted knowing he was ok. When we picked him up Yu told me that Luke was a great house guest and is welcome back any time. Also, another dog had peed and chewed on Luke's dog bed and Yu washed and repaired it. He offered to help buy a new one if the repair wasn't satisfactory but it was fine and we wouldn't expect him to do that - dogs will be dogs. We really appreciate knowing we have a safe and secure place to leave Luke when we go out of town.

Uy was great! He has a wonderful set up for multiple dogs and was understanding about our guy's shyness with new dogs. He was very flexible about drop off and pick up times and sent us a video to update us. Oliver came home happy and tired. We were very happy with Oliver's stay and will take him to Uy again!

Uy is fabulous. He's incredibly friendly & flexible--a big plus for busy lives!--and my Goldendoodle pup loves staying there and having the chance to play with doggy pals in his big back yard.
Uy was fantastic and Challa enjoyed herself. Uy's home is set up well do dog stays and he was easy and low drama to deal with!! Thanks Uy
Uy is a great host... highly recommended
Uy is flexible, even when you're in a bind!, and my dog Maggie has a great time playing with other pups in the backyard. So comforting knowing she's in great care!
Uy was a great host. My Wheaten Terrier "Paulie" seemed very comfortable there
Excellent, very trustworthy.
Uy was so great - we have boarded our dog with him several times, but we needed a last minute wknd stay for our pup, and he quickly accommodated us, even extending the stay to the next morning for a pro-rated rate. Fabulous!
Our beagle mix spent 5-days with Uy and he seemed to enjoy it! Uy has a nice backyard and was taking care of a few other dogs at the time as well (it was the holidays after all). Uy was always easily available by text and sent pictures of our little one throughout the week. Will definitely be having our pup stay with Uy again!

This was the first time I have left my dog. I have to say Ginger was very happy as viewed by the pics I received while away on vacation. This eased my anxiety and made me realize how much fun Ginger was having playing with other dogs. I am very attached to my pup but after this vacation I wouldn't hesitate to leave her with Uy.

Grimbal came home to me happy and healthy. He obviously enjoyed his time with Uy!
Uy is great, as always.
I am always so grateful that I can leave my dog with Uy and know he will be safe and happy. Buddy's tail starts wagging the second we arrive and he realizes that he gets to hang out with all his friends, and he's always pooped from all the fun when we get home (which is nice since I'm often pooped from my own travels). Uy is the best - I can't speak highly enough of him!

Flexible, great communications, and Bo seemed to love it.

Uy took great care of both of my dogs. He sent some pictures and always very quick to respond to my emails checking-in. I will definitely board with him again!
Uy was great! Jack seemed eager to go, and happy when I picked him up.
Uy is in a new home, with a wonderful fenced back yard, but still with his same easygoing, helpful, and caring manner. Same two dogs of his own, and still Harry's favorite host!
Excellent as usual - efficient drop off, pick up and he was flexible with us at the last minute, including when we needed to extend the stay. Definitely would book again!
Uy is great! He has a nice big yard and his pups are so cute! Thanks, Uy!
Such a wonderful experience! Uy is great! We'll definitely be back soon.
This was our first stay with Uy and he took good care of our Dobby. She looked really happy when I picked her up. Thanks so much for a great stay!
No issues! Uy was professional, attentive and stayed in constant communication. Hope to use again!
Uy is an extremely responsible young man who is great with pets. He did a great job taking care of my dog and cat!
Jack had another great stay with Uy! He was tired and happy when we picked him up, and I knew he was in great hands. Uy made it extremely convenient for us to drop off and pick up - we really appreciated it!
I feel comfortable leaving my dog with Uy. His house has a nice fenced-in backyard where my dog can run around. I also like the regular photos that I receive via e-mail.
Our first time leaving our pup with Uy was a great experience! Uy is so nice and obviously cares for his own dogs (and visiting dogs) very much. We will definitely use Uy again. Thanks, Uy! :)
Uy was a consummate pet host. He took care of our two dogs. I was most concerned about our younger one as it was her first time away from home. Uy was very reassuring, attentive, considerate and responsive to our concerns, keeping in touch with us and sending a photo, and they both did just fine. I have no hesitation leaving our dogs with him again and recommending Uy to other potential Dog Vaycay clients.

Uy was excellent - very accommodating and helped me get through my initial hesitation about using this service for the first time. I needed a place just for one night, and Uy took in my labradoodle with open arms. I highly recommend Uy.
Uy has been super dependable and reliable. We can always count on him to take good care of our dog, Fritz.
Our first experience with Uy was great - he took excellent care of Jack, who was recovering from surgery and needed an extra watchful eye. Highly recommend!
Uy was recommended to me by my neighbor who spoke very highly of Uy. After having met him, I felt comfortable enough to leave my dog for an extended weekend. Uy was very responsive to my e-mails and questions. Pleasantly, Uy sent pictures which was very comforting to me.

Our dog Nate loves going to stay with Uy! And I find Uy very conscientious, accommodating, and easy to coordinate with.
As always, Owen had a wonderful time at Uy's house. Thanks for another great visit!
Another excellent stay. Uy is very conscientious, responsible and responsive. Will definitely be booking again and recommend him all the time!
Zuri is now a frequent flier at Uy's place. This time, his parents mostly took care of her, and from the pictures we got, she seemed to be quite relaxed :) They were great about keeping her an extra day when our flight home got cancelled. I'm delighted to find out that they are now DogVacay hosts themselves, as Uy is moving a bit further away from us. Now I have two reliable and caring places to take Zuri to when we go away!
Read More...
Buddy had a BLAST and the pictures from Uy put a smile on my face every time (yes, he sent multiple photos!). It's so great to have a reliable place to take my dog where I know he'll be loved and taken care of the way that I would.
George seemed to have a great time! We really appreciated all the pictures and updates on George while we were gone.
Uy is our number 1 host - our family dog Shooly has stayed with him several times over the past year and has always been well cared for, loved and looked after. She's always returned in good health and perky.
Uy was always very flexible with us, accommodating last-minute changes with a smile and attentive to Shooly's needs.
He seems to truly love his dog-guests and we know we'll use his services again whenever needed.

Thanks Uy!

Uy took excellent care of our border collie, Fritz. He was responsive and flexible in setting up a meet & greet with us, and in all communications. Fritz seemed peaceful and in good spirits after his stay. We highly recommend Uy!
Jackson had a blast! He came home happy and tired :). We will definitely be using Uy again! Great experience!
Albi had lots of fun with other dog friends-- I could tell because she slept nonstop when I brought her home!
Zuri had another good visit at Uy's -- short but sweet! We appreciate that Uy sends pictures of her, even for a short stay. We know that she is well taken care of with him. His flexibility in terms of drop off and pick up is also very much appreciated.

Uy is such an awesome host: Athena loves going there, and actually runs in when Uy opens the door! He always sends picture updates, and is really flexible with pick up and drop off. I recommend him to all my friends with dogs, because it's such a fun experience for Athena, and so nice for me to she is in good hands.

Hy, Is the best. He took care of me last minute. He brought Baby Girl out to the car when we came to pick her up. >
2nd time booking with Uy - our dog came back exhausted and happy! Very pleased with Uy's flexibility, quick communication and attention to detail - he was able to work with us as we came back a day early and obtained us a refund from DogVacay for the unused day! Would definitely book again.

Uy responded to our reservation request within 24 hours as promised and was flexible with drop off and pick up. Uy emailed us pictures of our dog while gone and our dog seemed happy with her stay.
Uy is outstanding! Our pup, Lox stayed with him for four days. After meeting we could tell that he really enjoys what he does and loves dogs.

The set up in his home is wonderful and as dog parents with a severe case of separation anxiety, we really appreciated the text and photo updates from Uy throughout Lox's dog vacay :)

Uy is very professional and made our difficult decision to leave Terry over the Holidays easier. He responded rapidly and send pictures of Terry. Definitely left on vacation feeling that dear Terry was in good and competent hands !
Excellent experience.
Uy was a great host. We were first time Dog Vacay users. He was professional and personable and clearly was comfortable around multiple dogs at a time. We did a meet and greet prior which was helpful. Our dog looked tired and happy upon her return and we liked the photo updates throughout our vacation - we knew she was having a great time! Would not hesitate to use him again.

Great experience!! I had to leave my shee-poo Baby Girl with short notice. Uy was very flexible and came highly recommended from friends of my brother who have used Uy. I would recommend Uy for anyone needing his services. I would and will be using him again. Happy Pet Owner.

Uy was a great host. We had a smooth drop off and pick up for our two pups! We received great pictures of them and updates. They were exhausted from playing with the other dogs, which means they are happy. Thanks Uy!
As always, Uy did an amazing job taking care of our GSD while we were out of town for a long weekend. Thank you Uy!
Once again Uy has been wonderful. I hesitate to recommend him because I am afraid he will be too popular. :) He is wonderful with my dog who suffers from anxiety and even sent me a video of him playing with another dog. Something I never thought I would see.

Our dogs are very comfortable with Uy! We feel at ease when we are away....Thanks!
Uy is super good! Very quick to reply to texts and emails, and he sends you little updates with pics of your pups while you're away! Dogs have lots of room to play and run around. We feel very comfortable having our pups staying with him while we're away :)

We had an excellent experience each time Uy cared for our 2 small dogs. He is responsible, caring and accommodating. Our dogs were well taken care of, had a great time and we had no worries when they were in Uy's care.
Just like last time, Buddy had a blast staying with Uy! I am already planning to book with Uy again and I continue to recommend him to my friends in the area.
Excellent experience. Molly had great time and so did we as we had nothing to worry about with her being in such good hands. Easy to set up and Uy is a great communicater. Get ready, Uy, she's coming again!!!
Uy did an amazing job taking care of our German Shepherd, while we were out of town for a long weekend. He is a very experienced dog owner that I would trust with any breed of dog (large or small). He has my highest possible recommendation, and I will definitely bring our dog back to see him the next time we are heading out of town.

Our standard poodle, Meeka, had such an amazing time this past weekend at Uy's that when we picked her up she was so exhausted she slept straight through to the next morning!! She obviously had a great time, enjoyed playing with Uy's dogs, and was well tended to.

Uy was very good about sending daily updates and pictures so we knew how things were going, which I loved.

We will definitely be using Uy again, this was a seamless and awesome experience. Looking forward to next time.

Uy was super flexible and accommodating for our Shooly. We got stuck on the road from NYC to DC over the storm, and were forced to spend another night on the road. We knew she was in good hands at Uy's. Thanks!
This was our second time leaving our dog with Uy, and our dog's excitement level as we were dropping her off indicated she had a great time the first visit playing with other dogs. Uy is friendly and very responsive. We just booked our third visit with him.

Uy is a cool dude.
My two Ridgebacks stayed with Uy over the holidays. Uy was great - very responsive, and he sent me great pictures of my pups while I was away. The dogs seemed happy and well-cared for when I picked them up. Host was very flexible regarding timing for drop-off and pick-up, which was great. I would definitely recommend.

Uy is great. Very responsive and super flexible. He took great care of my dog while I was away on vacation. My flight back to DC was postponed a day due to inclement weather and Uy had no issues with the last minute need to board my dog another day.
Uy sent pictures and kept me informed periodically throughout the week on how things were going. My dog seemed very well taken care of while I was away. I definitely recommend Uy.

Uy took great care of our shepherd, Mingo. It was the first time that we spent a night away from our pup. We felt very comfortable leaving Mingo with Uy! Thank you!
Excellent experience a worry free vacation for dusty !
Uy was very responsive when we were away - answered wuestions promptly. Chesterseemed very happy and well cared for when we picked him up. This was our first Dogvacay experience and it was great!
Our two dogs just had another great stay with Uy. They came home happy and contented, which is very comforting.
Uy has watched our dog Ollie several times. He is very professional and responsive and cares about his charges. He sends us photos of Ollie and contacts us with any questions or concerns. He is responsible and loves dogs. We definitely feel comfortable leaving Ollie with him.

Uy has done a wonderful job! Chi-Chi had a happy and healthy vacay. Glad we connected with Uy, and will vacay again!
Bo (our Choc Lab) had a great time and Uy was very flexible and accommodating. Bo will certainly stay with him again.
Coco had a wonderful time! Thank you Uy :)
Uy is great and I have a very shy and anti-social dog. When I came to pick him up and saw him playing with the other dogs was just plain remarkable. Thanks Uy-you are a true pack leader.
Very responsive, frequent updates. Riley loves it there! :)
Uy was very accommodating, and sweet to Coco.
We are very happy to have found Uy. Sheldon and Brian just turned 1 years old and it is always hard to leave them, but we have piece of mind when we leave them with Uy. They really enjoy the new friends they make when they are there and come home tuckered out from all the fun! We are very happy with the care they receive from Uy!

Thanks for a great service Uy! will definitely use your services again.
We had our wedding in China and boarded our black lab Amina for the first time! Uy was very responsive to our emails/calls/texts. Amina seemed to have a wonderful stay at his house for 2+ weeks. Uy's parents seemed really nice as well!!

Will definitely have Amina stay with Uy again :)

Uy was very professional, helpful and very nice the dogs seemed very relaxed when they got home. He is the best sitter I have had in a long time. Highly recommend!
So thankful to have found Uy! It was nice to know that Indigo was so well taken care of while I was away! I highly recommend him.
My dog had a wonderful month-long Vacay with Uy, his family, and his doggie friends. Uy sent me lots of photo updates and I could tell that Buddy was having a TON of fun! This was the longest that I had ever had to leave Buddy, and it was such a relief to know that he was well taken care of and loved while I was gone. I would definitely use Uy again, and I've already recommended him to several friends!

Uy was wonderful! He took great care of our Aussie, Foster, while we were away for our wedding weekend. What peace of mind knowing our pup was in such great hands!
Once again, we were very confident leaving our two dogs with Uy for an extended stay. We received regular photo and written updates that gave us peace of mind, especially since we were a long way from home.
Zuri has stayed with Uy twice now: for 2 weeks earlier in the summer and more recently just for an overnight. Both times, she seems to have been well taken care of and comfortable. She enjoys playing with Uy's dogs and the other 'guests.' We got photo updates during her longer visit and were reassured that she was being taken out regularly for walks. Overall, we have appreciated Uy's flexible attitude and the additional help and attention from his parents. We've already booked Uy again for later this summer, so are clearly satisfied customers!

Uy is a wonderful host. He responds quickly and was great with our dog. Highly recommend!
Owen had fun with Uy. He is always happy there!
I felt my two dogs were in very capable, caring hands when I left them with Uy, and I was not disappointed. He kept me posted on how my more apprehensive dog was adapting to his surroundings, which was really nice. My dogs will be going back to Uy for an extended stay later this summer.

Uy is great. He took very good care of Chester. He kept in close contact with me and handled a little issue Chester had very well. Will definitely use his services again!
We had such a great experience boarding Lola with Uy! Lola isn't the easiest dog, and she takes some time to warm up. Uy totally understood, took great care of her, and sent us pictures so that we knew she was okay. He was even flexible and kept her for an extra night when our travel plans got complicated. I would definitely recommend him.

As always Uy was super and even has my super shy dog coming out of his crate to play with the other dogs. Unbelievable!
Wonderful social experience '!
Owen had a great time and was happy with Uy and the other doggies. We will have Owen stay with Uy again soon.
Uy is fantastic. My dog is extremely shy and scared of people and other dogs. Uy was very understanding and patient with him and after I saw the way he interacted with my dog I knew he was going to be great. I received pictures and texts while I was on my vacation and was so relieved to know that my dog was in a safe place with someone who genuinely cared. I plan to use Uy for all my trips.

The last time we went on vacation we left our dog Mango at a boarding facility for two weeks. She was anxious when she got there and when we picked her up you could tell that she couldn't wait to get out of there as well. The following weeks she was acting differently around other dogs from before. After that experience we were hesitant to put her back in boarding.

Thank goodness we found DogVacay and most importantly Uy! At our Meet and Greet, Mango was relaxed and when we picked her up after her stay she was happy as can be. Uy would also send us pics throughout her stay which was very much appreciated. We would definitely use Dog Vacay and Uy again and again!

this was the first time I boarded Dusty with Uy. I am grateful for his calm demeanor that helps Dusty settle in immediately among his pack. She is a little insecure but she got to relax in a warm homey enviroment. Thanks Uy !
Uy was fantastic all around. Easy to communicate with and great about working with my schedule. I wouldn't hesitate to board my dog with him again and would recommend him to others.
a pleasure, as always
Porter had an excellent stay! Uy was very flexible with drop-off/pick-up times and even sent a picture of Porter during his stay. Overall, a wonderful experience!
another great visit.
Uy is great, I would recommend him to anyone. I suspect Gadget had more fun staying with him than she does with me when my kids aren't around.
superb experience, yet again
It was the first time we had to find a place for our skittish little rescue doggie to stay during our absence. We could not be happier about how well it all went. We started with a meet and greet and the hosts' dog and ours got acquainted. The actual stay was without any problems and Nelson came home happy and healthy. During his stay we even received photo updates which made us very happy.
We can only recommend Uy!

lovely guy. great host. superb experience in every way.
"Pawsome" home stay for Bocca, my 6-year-old, highly energetic Cockapoo. Uy was very responsive in letting me know how Bocca was doing, and from what I could tell created a great environment for all four-legged guests at his house.
Sophie and Scooter enjoy their time with Uy so much. He always takes great care and time with them and sends wonderful pictures during their stay. Thank you for being a great care giver whenever I need you.
Uy took excellent care of my dog India, and was kind enough to send several photo updates. I would undoubtedly have him care for my dog in the future.
Uy was amazing. Uy took care of my 10 year old english bulldog for 2 weeks...and during the 2 weeks I was at ease knowing that she was in great hands. He would send me picks every couple of days of her having a nice time! My husband and I were worried that she would not want to come home with us after her vacay with Uy :).

Thanks again for taking care of my dog!!

Uy did an amazing job taking care of my baby! A+!!!
Uy was great with our greyhound, Miranda. She stayed with Uy for a week when we were out of the country. He was very supportive to the special needs of our 13-year old "pup." We will certainly use him again the next time we go out of town!
Uy was a great host! He took care of my baby and I'm very happy with his service. As a fellow DogVacay host he's great!
My dog, Sunshine, had a pleasant experience while staying with Uy. I like the fact that Uy himself has pets so he's aware of the amount of love i have for my baby and it allowed for Sunshine to have constant play buddies. Uy was even courteous enough to provide pictures of Sunshine while we were away which wasn't expected but truly appreciated. I hope Uy is available the next time my wife and i need to take a vacation as he will be our first option.

Uy was a great host. My dog had lots of room to run around and seemed to enjoy her stay. I liked getting pictures of her while I was away.
Uy is very responsiveness and accommodating. His two dogs are very sweet and friendly as well. Very nice neighborhood. Will definitely use his services again!
Uy was very flexible! It was great knowing Bella was well cared for! Thanks Uy!
I am so fortunate to have found Uy. After losing my sitter to pregnancy and relocation, I've been pretty desperate to find someone who treated my two little ones as well as she did. An emergency over the weekend prompted my search on the site and i was fortunate to find Uy. As my doggies are the most friendly pair, they were welcomed by Uy's little ones and Uy's sister with open arms. The photos during my trip gave me the comfort to know that I'd left them with a caring individual. When I picked them up, they both appeared to have certainly enjoyed themselves. I look forward to the next time they can visit and spend time with Uy. Thank you for the care and willingness to host Scooter and Sophie with such last minute notice.

Uy is always quick to respond, extremely accommodating and really great with Maestro. I highly recommend his services.
Freddy had a great time with Uy and his pets. He seemed happy to be one more in the pack. I would recommend leaving your loved one under his care as both you and your pet can have peace mind while you travel.
Uy was great again! Maestro loves going over to play with the other pups in the yard. Uy's dad is also great with Maestro and spends a lot of time with the dogs. Really glad to have found such an amazing place for Maestro to stay while I'm traveling!

Uy is great! This was my first time leaving my pup with him and it was for a long trip (to shanghai for almost 3 weeks), he arranged a meetup so I could see his home and allow Maestro to meet his dogs. He has a huge yard and a large home for the dogs to play. He was incredibly accommodating to my schedule, and my desires for the care of my dog. When I came home my dog was happy, healthy, and the same weight I left him at (may not sound like a big deal, but it's a big indicator for me that he is well fed, well exercised...and being kept away from the other dog's food). I'll be using Uy again soon, and often!

Uy was great. There were some huge storms in the DC area during our dog's stay that knocked down trees and knocked out power. He regularly kept me informed and worked with my schedule as our flight had to be cancelled. With all the crazyness, I knew that our pup was is good hands. i highly recommend!
