We are dog lovers who recently lost our dog and want to watch dogs to fill that void. We are the "go to" dog sitters for our neighbors and friends. We almost always have someone at home. Our house is in a nice residential neighborhood with open spaces for exercising a dog on their leash, We have a good sized fenced in our back yard and many dog toys and balls for playtime. We also have experience in the care and feeding of cats!

My two Golden Retrivers were very happy and loved playing outside in the back yard at Steve and Kitty's home. Steve sent me pictures of my dogs snuggling on the couch and following Steve around like a shadow which tells me how much they enjoyed their visit! Highly recommend Steve and Kitty and will definitely book them again!

My girls love Steve! Tilly can be reserved with men....and she ended up in his lap for cuddles. Steve has a calm and quiet demeanor that my girls instantly felt comfortable with.
Our dog was treated like a prince at Steve's - just like home, lounging on couches and sunning in huge flat backyard (also great for running and sniffing), daily walks, and lots of love. A few treats, too!
So happy to have found Steve on this site. Couldn't have asked for a better place to host our three high energy dog friends. I had a little anxiety as one of the three has some social hesitations, but the ease of meeting Steve and his family left us entirely confident that our dogs would be happy, safe and well cared for! Their yard and home offer and great amount of play space and their natural ease and good energy around the dogs put our three right in to their comfort zone. Thank you so much for having them. Will certainly look you up again if the opportunity arises and highly recommend you to all dog owners!

I feel very comfortable leaving my dog Molly, an almost 12 year old mini schnauzer, with Steve and Kitty. I can tell Molly is very comfortable there because when she comes home she is her normal self (not exhausted from lack of rest). They have a nice yard and allow Molly to hang out on whatever sofa she prefers.

What a great experience. Our dogs were very happy with their stay and when we picked them up! Steve and his wife were great to deal with and we felt treated our dogs as if they were their own. The daily texts and photos kept us up to speed and were humorous. Our pets are important to us and we will be back again! Great Job!

We were very comfortable leaving our two dogs with Steve and his wife. Steve was very good about sending daily pictures and updates on the dogs. They were well taken care of as they paid a lot of attention to each of their needs.
We would absolutely use Steve again!

We had frequent photos and communication during the stay. She was very well taken care of and we could tell she was enjoying herself while we were away. Thanks to our hosts!!!!
I can't even begin to describe how happy and content my baby girl was when I picked her up from Steve and Kitty's house. Their house is very dog friendly, as is their backyard. Unfortunately, my dog can be a little bugger when it comes to other dogs and can get pretty aggressive with her 'fence fighting'. We were concerned this would be a problem, so they only allowed her in the backyard when they were able to be out there with her. This also alleviated my concerns that she might feel abandoned by me, and jump the fence. He also took her for a walk as I was leaving, so she wouldn't panic when I left. All in all, I was very happy, and will definitely be leaving her with them again!

Our two dogs had a great time with Steve and Kitty. Cheech and Daisy were treated like family and especially enjoyed playing in their huge yard. I would highly recommend Steve and Kitty and our family plans on using them again.
Stephen and Kitty are fantastic, obviously dog-lovers. We felt comfortable with them right away and knew that our dog would be in good hands. Stephen sent pics and updates each day. At the last minute we discovered that we needed an additional night and morning. Stephen was great about offering a very gracious and workable solution.

We couldn't ask for a better experience for our dog Max. Stephen provides a very caring atmosphere and goes out of his way to ensure Max's well being.
The trail walks and outdoor activities were greatly appreciated. Max loves Stephen and his family and can't wait to return!

This was our first time using DogVacay, and we had a great experience! Steve and Kitty are very nice, easy-going people, and they have a wonderful house and fenced yard (dogs are free to roam anywhere in the house and back yard, which our dog appreciated!) It is obvious they love dogs; we felt very comfortable leaving our dear Lily with them overnight. Steve texted several photos of Lily enjoying the grassy yard, and out on a walk in the open space. We can whole-heartedly recommend Steve and Kitty, and look forward to having Lily stay with them again!

Stephen & his wife, Kitty were AWESOME!!! I have never been so un-stressed about where my dog was while I was gone as during his time with them! The daily updates and pictures were great -- really helped us see he was having a good time. They did everything they could to put us at ease & it helped us to have an even more wonderful vacation. Really nice people and I HIGHLY recommend and will definitely use again.

Chip had a wonderful stay with Steve and Kitty! I was relieved to know we could go on vacation and he was happy going on his!
This is my first experience with Dogvacay, and I would recommend the service to anyone!
We were traveling internationally, and I felt so comfortable with my dogs' hosts.

Steve, and his wife Kitty are warm, and friendly people. They were very easy to talk with, and always communicated in a timely manner.

I was relieved to hear that they didn't mind our dogs being on their furniture, they are true dog people. They had provided beds, and toys for the dogs.
The backyard was made for dogs, the fence has an extra wire fence, so that your dog can't jump out. This made me feel really secure because Sammy loves to chase squirrels! They also live right next to a park, and took the dogs on walks.

They sent daily updates of our two dogs. I really enjoyed seeing that our dogs were a part of their lives. My father-in-law even started asking to see their daily pictures. I was always reassured that the dogs were having a great time through the pictures. It almost looked like Sammy, and Riley were their dogs! (note: Steve knows how to use Whatsapp, for any other travelers!)

They were able to give them their medication, and on time which is a huge plus!

On our way home, they let us pick up our pups later in the evening (even after being delayed on our last flight). They also sent us home with dog bones!

We were temporarily in the area, but if we were to be in the Denver area again... we would seek them out to watch our pups! I would recommend Steve, and Kitty to anyone!
