About Megan

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I own a home in Mint Hill, NC, on the eastern side of Charlotte. Our dogs are treated like the family members they are and they are very social and incredibly used to new dogs coming and going. Our dogs enjoy the luxury of sleeping on our couch and on the many dog beds we have throughout the house, but we are happy to enforce a no furniture rule for your dog if that is your rule at home. We have a large yard with a 6ft tall fence so your dog would have plenty of room to run and play.

Our dogs are very good at matching the energy level of the visiting dog and they are very respectful of other dogs' personal space while they are in our home. If your dog is playful they are happy to engage in a good wrestling match, but if your dog prefers to just relax on the couch he or she will not be disturbed.

We have fostered nearly 400 dogs for various rescues in the past; both male and female, large and small, newborn to senior. We have handled many different personalities and quirks and we are very comfortable giving medications or anything else needed for a dog while in our care. We are also happy to take multiple dogs if you have more than one furry family member that needs a place to stay.

We try to match sleeping arrangements as close to what the dog is used to at home as possible. If the dog is used to sleeping in the bedroom, they are welcome to stay in our room with us. If the guest dog is used to sleeping in a crate, we have many crates and dog beds of all sizes that they are welcome to use while they are here. We are fine with small breed dogs used to sleeping in the bed joining us in ours.

We are currently able to watch dogs under 40lbs.

Pick up and drop off times during the week are 4:30-9pm. Weekends and school holidays are flexible (my husband is a teacher and is off for school holidays).

I love taking photos of the dogs, so I am more than happy to send regular photo and video updates at your request.

Please let me know if you have any questions about our home and what you can expect if you leave your dog in our care.

Great experience, from the prompt response at the very beginning to the fun texts and pictures to the very end. My dog was better adjusted after any boarding he ever had.
I am delayed in posting this, but I cannot say enough positive things about Megan and Benjamin! They were fabulous hosts for my baby boy Fenway and it was clear he had a wonderful time! They sent me a ton of pictures and constantly kept me informed on how he was doing. They truly treated him like family! We will definitely be booking with them again!

Milo had a blast while at Megan's! He enjoyed running and playing with her dogs in the backyard. She and her husband were so nice to him. He was sad to leave, so I know he will return.
Our dog Cora loved staying with Megan while we were at the beach for the week. She ate well and played with the other dogs. Megan sent lots of pictures and updates throughout the week and had no problem accommodating our travel schedule with drop off and pick up times. Cora wanted to get out into the garage to get into the car the next morning after she came home. We think she was missing Megan! We highly recommend Megan. Cora was obviously well taken care of and happy during her stay.

Wow! This was the first time we had ever left our 2 babies with anyone. I have to say, I was nervous at first. Meagan and her husband were awesome. I even received pictures every night to ease my mind. I'm definitely coming back! Paw friends for life!!

Megan and her husband were so great with my dog. They have a very large fenced in yard for the dogs to run around in. They sent me daily photo/video updates. They made my very skiddish dog feel right at home! We will definitely use them the next time we are in Charlotte.

Megan and her husband were absolutely AMAZING with our puppy, Buttercup. When we first arrived, they introduced their dogs to Buttercup one at a time so they could get well acquainted. She fit right in. While we were gone, they took pictures and sent us updates at least once a day. They even sent us beautiful high definition pictures of Buttercup - she looked like a model pup! I highly recommend Megan, and we will definitely use her again if we need a pupsitter in the near future.

Megan and her husband Benjamin are awesome!!!!!!! We were visiting from out of town and needed help with our sweet Millie, and they were able to help us with short notice. I wished we lived closer so Millie could stay more often. If you live in the Charlotte area or are visiting, I highly recommend this sweet family!!!!!!

Megan and Benjamin were great, they will definitely be our go to choice when we need someone to take care our little girl! Our 18 month old collie mix has some behavioral anxiety problems when meeting new people, she can act very aggressive especially towards men.

Benjamin was there to greet us when we dropped her off and he was very calm and patient with her and made her feel very at ease. He clearly knew how to handle a dog with anxiety issues and he even sat down on the driveway before I brought her over to make sure he wasn't too initimidating. To my surprise she had no issues meeting Benjamin and didn't seem nervous at all, which is extremely rare for her first introduction. 5 minutes after we left he sent us a picture of Cashew glady accepting belly rubs on the couch and playing with his shepherd mix and I immediately felt great about leaving her with Benjamin and Megan for a few nights.

Throughout her stay Megan and Benjamin sent pictures and videos of Cashew playing with their friendly dogs and playing in the yard, she looked like she was happier than ever.

Dropping off Cashew is always a stressful ordeal for us because of her aggression when meeting new people, but Megan and Benjamin made it as easy as possible and I felt like Cashew was happy as can be when we picked her up.

Absolutely faultless. My pup was extremely happy and the daily photo updates were great. I would highly recommend and will definitely be using Megan again! Thanks for taking such care of Beasley
From the moment Bella ( our quite quirky Yorkie mix with a torn acl)and I met Megan and Ben, I knew she was going to be very comfortable in their home. Bella was immediately relaxed and happy to be there and she connected right away with Ben and Megan. There is no doubt that they will do anything to make your dog feel at home. While we were gone, Megan sent me pictures and updates. I was totally relaxed while I was gone. When I went to pick her up, she was happy to see me but not rushing to leave at all. My husband and I are thrilled that we have found a great place for her to go to when we travel. It will be her second home.

Megan was very friendly and caring. I could tell she would be good with my dogs.
My stay with Megan was Fun! I got to meet new playmates and explore the backyard. This was my first visit and Megan took pictures so Suzanne could know all was ok. My stay was great!
Awesome
Super super awesome! my dogs are in love with them. I feel so comfortable and safe leaving my dogs with Megan she is super friendly and warm. Always a pleasure to see her!
This was the first time that I used Dogvacay. Megan and Ben took great care of Mugsy. I got updates and pictures while I was away so that I knew he was okay. I would definitely leave Mugsy with them again.
Megan and Ben are awesome! This being my first time using dogvacay. They are patient with the parents and enjoy your fur baby just the same! My Zoey gained some manners and enjoyed herself. The communicate and send wonderful pictures. If I get a chance I will use them again.

Really easy to work with and our dog was super happy at their house with lots of playmates. Thank you and sorry for such a late review.??
Megan and Ben are the best Pet Vacay hosts. We are repeat customers. Not only were Megan and Ben thrilled to host our dog Baley for a second visit, but they also gladly agreed to host our 3 month old puppy, Guinness. Baley and Guinness had a great visit and were well cared for. We will definitely use Megan and Ben again.

Megan was able to take Bella for an overnight with short notice. I had a wonderful birthday thanks to Megan and Benjamin!!!
Great experience, pictures and updates whenever needed, no complaints. Would use again. .
loving, caring and great!
Bella just came home from her "Other Home", as we have now decided to call Megan's house. She loved being with the other dogs and gets lots of socialization Megan and Ben are AWESOME and you need to contact them if you want to leave your pet where you can have peace of mind. Great home!!!

On this stay with Megan, Bella had a great time running with the other dogs in their fenced in yard. She was really tired but happy to see us when we picked her up. Megan sent some pictures of her receiving lots of loving care, as usual, and also a video of Megan teaching her to sit and go down :) We have booked her this weekend for another FUN stay that includes Halloween night.

great and loving.
Our Engish Setter puppy Bella just spent 2 nights with Megan and is now resting from her fun with them. In spite of the torrential rain, Megan kept her busy inside with play. We received several updates and 2 pictures that made us smile. We are so glad that we found Megan and Bella would agree if she could talk:). Thanks, Megan and Ben !!! Marta

Bob and I feel so blessed that we have found Megan and Benjamin to board our puppy!! They provided the kind of boarding that I have wanted with other dogs but just recently found online. They are warm, friendly, responsible, and love dogs. Our puppy is only 4 months and Bella LOVED being there. They sent us pictures and we could see how much fun she was having. She ran until she had to take a breath and then started all over. I highly recommend them and will use them in October for another couple of weekends:)

Megan and Ben are fabulous Dog Vacay hosts. They have an extensive knowledge of dog behavior. My dog Baley was right at home as soon as she arrived at Megan's house. Megan kept me informed with text messages, pictures and even a video. It is obvious that Baley had a fantastic time. We will not hesitate to book with Megan and Ben again.

Megan and her husband and doggies are awesome hosts! They have a great yard and house and are very welcoming.
hey have kept Avery 2x and he has had a blast with them. Megan is very attentive and made sure that Avery stuck with in his routine and worked with him to build his foundation with manners.
Avery liked being there so much that the 2nd time he stayed he ran right up to the door and couldn't wait to go inside. We definitely recommend them having your pup stay with Megan.

Thank you!! Great hosts, my puppy was super happy! Very accommodating and sent me amazing pictures
great pet parents! they are so welcoming and supplied a ton of photos that made me so happy to see that my pups were safe and happy. I loved that they kept me informed of their condition and how they were getting along with their roommates. I will only use Megan from now on. Such a wonderful experience! So happy I found them on DogVacay this stay is so much better then a regular dog kennel!!! its less stressful and more cozy for dogs to adapt to when doggie parents are away on vacation. so pawsome!!!

It was our first time leaving Sandy and Oliver at Megan's. Both Megan and Ben were wonderful. They kept us posted on Sandy and Oliver every day, took them for walks and made sure that they were comfortable. We are very happy with all the care they took. Our dogs came back home happy.

Leaving my dog with Megan was a great experience! Left her for an overnight trip, and came back to a thoroughly played, fed and exhausted puppy. This is definitely my go-to option on DogVacay now. Thanks!
Megan and Ben were great! They have a genuine love for animals and have four dogs of their own. While I was on vacation I knew the dogs were in good hands and they sent pictures every day! Next time I go on vacation I will be hitting them up again... They are awesome!

Megan was very helpful about last minute arrangements and was very friendly to my dog. I would definitely ask her to watch him again.
This couple is absolutely amazing ! we are so happy to work with Ben and Magen and looking forward to our next vecations now that we can leave our puppy and knowing he is getting the best care !! Thank you !
Megan and Ben are wonderful. They welcomed Avery into their home and made sure he had a good, safe time. They also reinforced the rules we have for him to further his crate and manners training. Megan also sent plenty of pics so we could see that he was having a good time. He really enjoyed playing with their awesome dogs and we appreciated his being well socialized. Thanks so much Megan and Ben!!!

Megan and Ben were great with all three of our dogs. She sent us daily pictures of them and kept us updated on their activities. When we got them home, they were exhausted from all of the outdoor time they had during their stay. We will absolutely have them stay with Megan the next time we are out of town.

Megan and Benjamin are amazing. Captain had a wonderful time and we couldn't be happier. They truly love dogs and have a perfect dog setup. Backyard is a dog haven.
Maizey is typically aggressive with other dogs but Megan and Ben were able to socialize her with their dogs so she was able to play nicely with them. I couldn't believe it! I loved the regular updates, including pictures, that Megan sent and was 100% confident she was being well taken care of. Thank you Megan and Ben!

We love Megan (and Ben). They have watched Parker for over 3 years (and were his Foster parents before we adopted him). It is so comforting to know that our dog will be loved on as much as he would be if he were home. She sends pictures and videos of Parker having fun too. I highly recommend them to anyone! Knowing that Parker is in good hands, in a loving home, and not in a kennel, makes our vacation so much more enjoyable. They have a great big fenced in back yard too

This was an EXCELLENT experience! Megan was a class act. Her and her husband are animal lovers, which was perfect for my dog. I have a Siberian Husky and she interacted very well with their dogs. They have a HUGE back yard with a double fence, which was perfect to make sure my Husky could not escape. They were very responsible, loving and kind. I got updates on my phone with videos and texts. I would gladly take my dog to them any time and feel 100% comfortable. Great experience and thank you!

Fantastic!!! I was so comfortable leaving our 2 dogs with Megan and Ben. They are great people and from the first second I met them, I could tell they would love my dogs like their own. Our plans changed 3 or 4 times during our whole engagement with Megan and Ben, and they were flexible and accommodating. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
