About Ashley and Gibson

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
HELLO! We realize finding someone you can trust with your dog while you're away is important. We aim to treat every dog as if it were our own, while respecting any special needs or requests. Having boarded over 50 different dogs, with 27 repeat guests since 2013, we've done it all. We also were chosen by DogVacay as a top host and to be a community mentor to new members of the DV community. Please keep reading below to find out more!

Check out our instagram @howliday_inn_brooklyn

In addition to a minimum of 3 walks per day, your dog will receive plenty of playtime and love. We allow all guest pups free roam of the apartment and in bed with us to sleep. Guests are also welcome to bring any personal items along but we have plenty of toys, organic treats, extra bowls, and dog beds to share! We kindly ask that all our doggie guests be fully housebroken and neutered/spayed. Daily photo and video updates will be sent—we promise you plenty! :)

We live in a 1 bedroom/1 bath 500 sq. ft. walk-up apartment with a huge outdoor private terrace on the 2nd floor. Our apartment is clean, smoke-free, and easily accessible from multiple subway lines. We own a car, in case of emergencies, or if you need to have your dog picked up and/or dropped off (within ~2 miles, fees apply).

Mo is our adopted deaf Maltese, sweet as can be. He gets overexcited when initially meeting other dogs but otherwise very chill. Kobi, originally our foster Yorkie, is shy and submissive but not afraid to ask for belly rubs and give kisses. They are never crated and have free range of the entire apartment. They have co-existed with dogs of all sizes and personalities very well but do prefer lower energy dogs. On rare occasion, they both will find dogs they like to play with but normally prefer to play alone or cuddle up to a human. Both dogs are update-to-date with vaccinations, paperwork can be provided upon request.

Ashley is a graphic designer and Gibson is the owner/chef of a sandwich shop in Boerum Hill! Ashley works traditional 9-5 hours but is home on nights and weekends. Gibson works less than 10 minutes away from home and is available in the afternoons so your pup is never left alone for more than a couple hours. We always try to be as flexible as possible to meet your arrangement needs.

We require a meet and greet with all new clients that way both parties, including the dogs, can meet prior. They are hosted at our apartment that way you can see where your pup would be staying. To schedule one, click the "Request Free Meet-n-Greet" link below our profile photo!

A surcharge of $10/night will be added during major holiday weekends. 2017 holiday rates apply to the following dates: Jan 13-17, Feb 17-21, May 25-31, June 30-July 5, Aug 31-Sept 5, Nov 22-27, Dec 22-Jan 2

Ashley and Gibson were wonderful hosts to Jax and sent me regular updates throughout the day. Knowing Jax was comfortable and well taken care of is important to me and Ashley and Gibson clearly met the mark. I knew Jax had fun when he tried to pull me back to their place after we took a short walk! :)
Yet another fantastic boarding experience with Ashley and Gibson! Layla has enjoyed more than 20 stays with them, Kobi and Mo thus far, and is always excited to go back (at pick-up, she runs into their arms and doesn't even look back!). We are so thankful for Ashley and Gibson, who continue to be very reliable, responsible, flexible and loving hosts, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to other dog owners.
Ashley and Gibson did a great job taking care of our very shy dog Bori for a week. They updated us with emails and photos regularly so we felt like our dog was being very well taken care of. Thank you!
Ashley and Gibson were awesome dog sitters. They sent us multiple updates every day, and we never had to worry about Biggie. We'Il defintely be giving them a call next time we need a sitter.
First time using Dog Vacay and Ashley and Gibson were awesome! They sent us multiple updates per day of our Boston Terrier Rufus. Both pictures and videos. It was very clear that he was well taken care of and based on how long he slept once we got back, he had plenty of play time. We wanted to leave him with people who had their own dogs. When we met Ashley, Gibson and their dogs before confining the stay, it was clear how good they are with dogs. Will definitely be repeat customers if we need to board Rufus again!
Our dog Pixel had such a wonderful time at Ashley and Gibson's!!!
Going away on vacation was always put on the back burner because leaving our dog with someone was something stressful to think about. I'm so glad we found Ashley and Gibson! I think Pixel had a better vacation than we did! She had a great time meeting new doggy friends, playing with toys that Ashley and Gibson provided, and soaking in the sun on their big deck. It didn't take much time for Pixel to ease right into their "pack".
Getting photo and video updates really put our mind at ease and allowed us to enjoy our vacation. You can tell that Ashley and Gibson are really great with dogs, and overall just very nice, genuine people. Our only fear was that Pixel wouldn't want to come home with us when we got back!
Don't hesitate about leaving your dog with Ashley and Gibson, your pet will be in very good hands!!!

As many dog owners are, I'm always nervous about leaving my pup under someone else's care... What if they don't walk her enough? What if they don't follow the meal schedule I requested? What if my pup were to get in a fight with another dog and get injured while I'm away? All of these concerns dissipated when I saw not only how well Ashley and Gibson's own dogs were cared for, but also how well they cared for Jamie. The daily photo and video updates kept me reassured throughout my week and a half absence.

I will undoubtably use Ashley and Gibson again, and would recommend them to anyone else without hesitation.
I had reservations about leaving Harry and Frank with complete strangers, after a bad situation with, However, Ashley reassured me straight away not only about the care she would give my dogs, but also about the expertise by which she knows dogs, especially little dogs. Harry and Frank were clearly looked after attentively and with love, and they were surrounded by lots of little mates, the likes of which actually made them a bit more sociable. Ashley not only sent us loads of daily updates (images and videos, both of which were documents and works of art -- Ashley has a real talent), but she also responded promptly to my queries, such as, "oh, I forgot about this", or "oh, Frank is like this, and I forgot to tell you" with grace and aplomb. I'm not actually sure that my boys wanted to come home! I never want to go away again without them, but if so, I'll be sure to contact Ashley and Gibson again.
We were first time users of dogvacay and were very lucky to find Ashley and Gibson. Our dog, Oscar, is a rescue and can be quite nervous but Ashley & Gibson were great with him and he was acclimated in no time. They sent daily updates, pictures and videos so we felt quite at ease knowing Oscar was in great hands. I'm not sure Oscar wanted to come home! I would strongly recommend Ashley and Gibson to anyone looking to leave their pup in a loving secure home.
Ashley & Gibson were wonderful. My pup is a senior and can be a hand full but they both were so great about her restrictions and to her in general. I got photos and videos from the moment I walked out their door from drop off to right before pick up.
Sofie had such an amazing time with Ashley and Gibson. I think it was like being in camp for her. She even played with Ashley & Gibson's dog Mo and that is not like her at all The videos, the photos, the communication were all top notch. Already to book her for our next occasion. Thanks so much@!!
Nothing short of fabulous. They love dogs, are above and beyond organized, and alleviate the concerns of over-protective pet owners such as myself. The very second I started missing my pup during my vacation, another picture or video was sent to me reminding me he was in great hands. In addition to the personal attention they gave my little one, their private terrace and their own friendly, and playful dogs made my dog's stay even better. Highly recommend.
Ashley and Gibson are great! Friendly, outgoing and clearly love animals. My dogs had a great stay with them and we loved the adorable photos and videos that were shared with us while we were on vacation. Great communication and lovely people! My dogs were very loved and happy!
Ashley and Gibson are the best! My dogs love them and are always excited to see Mo and Koby.
Ashley and Gibson were wonderful! Our dog Buster looked like he was having so much fun in the videos and photos sent during his stay. A positive experience all around!
My dog Mardi has stayed with Ashley and Gibson twice now (first for a long weekend and then for about a week). Without a doubt, I couldn't have hoped for better hosts! Ashley sent us photos and videos everyday while we were away and it was a relief to see how happy Mardi was. It was also comforting to know that they let Mardi sleep in their bed everynight. Mardi obviously also had a great time with Mo and Kobi. The second time we dropped her off, Mardi was so excited to see them again that she didn't even mind that we left! I would definitely have Mardi stay with Ashley and Gibson again!
We've tried many Dogvacay hosts and no one comes close to Ashley and Gibson. They're a superteam! Ashley is super organized and reliable, from the initial meet up to sending us videos and photos multiple times a day. Our Yorkie Pomeranian Rigby loved Gibson, and it brightened our day to see photos of Rigby snuggling up to them and getting along really well with their dogs.
We could tell Rigby got personalized attention, and they definitely went above and beyond. We had a worry-free 2-week vacation knowing Rigby was also having a great time!
Thank you so much guys!!
Ashley and Gibson were excellent hosts to my pup, Rex. They were great about sending pictures and videos and made sure he had a great time. I highly recommend them.
Thanks again to Ashley and Gibson for another fantastic stay! Their new private terrace is a huge bonus, and Layla thoroughly enjoyed playing fetch and being outdoors in the sun. We know she's in perfectly good hands with them and never have to worry - she'll be back!
Had a great first experience with Dog Vacay thanks to Ashley and Gibson. Was sent lots of pictures and videos to put my mind at ease while I was away. Would definitely recommend them and I'll be using them again.
Ashley and Gibson were great & treated Bailey really well. She had a great time judging by all her pictures of her stay there. I would highly recommend them & hope to book a stay again there next time.
Ashley and Gibson are wonderful and took such good care of our Biscoff! They also sent daily updates with photos and videos that we enjoyed seeing, and we could tell he felt right at home with them and their two sweet dogs (and even got to play in the snow on their terrace, which he loves!). They were also flexible with drop off and pick up times. We highly recommend and will definitely book with them again!
Ashley and Gibson are incredibly thoughtful and caring hosts who do an amazing job of sending pictures and videos. Your pet will be safe hands with them.
Ashley and Gibson are absolutely incredible hosts! I have never felt more securely about my dog than when he spent some time at Ashley and Gibson's very kind and welcoming home. We got pictures and/or videos every day and Rex loved playing with their two sweet dogs. I definitely will be using them again and highly recommend them.
Ashley and Gibson were very accommodating with my pup and I would be happy to use them again. I felt very comfortable with their care.
Ashley and Gibson are amazing hosts! I was able to book with them on short notice before leaving for home for the holidays, and over the duration of my trip, they sent me consistent updates (pictures/videos) of Snickers. Worry-free and extremely accommodating :) Would recommend to anyone who wants their pet in a safe, fun environment. They are now my #1 option for a pet-sitter!
Bentley's time with Ashley and Gibson was amazing - so amazing, in fact, that Bentley didn't want to leave when we picked him up. He even slept in their bed both nights!

We dropped Bentley off on Friday, and before we even got to the airport a few hours later, Ashley sent us two videos of Bentley playing with her dogs. She kept the updates coming the whole weekend, and it made being away from my baby MUCH easier. :)

We highly recommend Ashley and Gibson - Bentley will definitely be back to stay with them!
Layla enjoyed another fantastic stay with Ashley and Gibson! Ashley does it all - she picked Layla up right on schedule, cared for Layla and four other little dogs, and sent us multiple photos and videos of Layla's stay while we were away. Great sitters and highly recommended!
Ashley and Gibson are fantastic! They kept us updated with lots of pictures and video and I would definitely recommend and book with them again!
Ashley & Gibson were wonderful hosts to Rasta. I really had peace of mind knowing she was in a quiet home with other dogs instead of a noisy daycare. They are very personable hosts and are so wonderful about sending pics and videos... I will definitely use their services again!
Ashley and Gibson were amazing petsitters- this was our first time using DogVacay and we are so glad to have found them! They picked up and dropped off Layla from our apt at a nominal fee, and were always prompt and on time. While we were away, Ashley sent us daily photo and video updates of Layla. Layla was certainly very loved and well taken care of on her vacay. We trust Ashley and Gibson to be reliable and responsible petsitters, and would not hesitate to use them again!
Ashley and Gibson were great dog sitters, giving my dog lots of love and care and continuously sending pictures and videos, proving that he was having a grand time playing with their dogs. I picked up my dog later than expected and they were very flexible and understanding. I'm sure my dog would be more than happy to go back to their home!
Ashley and Gibson were amazing! This was our third time leaving bobo and kissy with them and I'm 100% positive that they were in good hands!! Will strongly recommend Ashley and Gibson and will continue to send my pups over in the future!!
This was my frist time leaving Coco with someone other than my mom for an extended period of time and Ashley and Gibson could not make me feel any more comfortable. Drop off and pick up times were flexible. When I dropped her off, we stayed for a bit to ask them questions. They sent me pictures and videos (not all day but enough to let me know that Coco was doing fine) which was great. The two resident dogs are very friendly and Coco got along with them just fine. I will definitely be using them again if I need to leave Coco with someone!
Second time leaving bobo & kissy here with Ashley & Gibson! They were wonderful!!! They are our go-to hosts now for all our future vacation plans.
This was my second time leaving Mohawk with Ashley and Gibson. Again, they were fantastic, were able to work with me on a short notice and picked him up. Mohawk always looks happy in all the videos and pictures that they send regularly. They are my top choice anytime I need to travel.
Ashley and Gibson are amazing host!! Ashley sent me photos and videos of Rody playing with all of his new friends and I can definitely tell he had a great time! They are also flexible and accommodating to my schedule in terms of drop off and pick up! I will definitely send Rody to stay with them the next time I'm away!
Ashley and Gibson are great!! They took care of my 2 malteses for 10 days when my husband and I traveled abroad. Ashley sent us daily updates and I can tell that my pups were having a great time playing with Ashley's dogs. I also meticulously wrote a 2-page instructions but Ashley was really nice and understanding and strictly followed it! My dogs were super happy and clean when we picked them up. We are highly satisfied and will surely go back to Ashley and Gibson again next time!
they were awesome to our taffy, daily videos/pics were great. we can tell they care and know a lot about dogs. having other dogs definitely made our taffy adjust easily.would certainly recommend them and their doggies.
Ashley and Gibson were awesome!! They were quick in responding to questions that I had. They sent us multiple videos and pictures throughout the day of our little Rocky which helped us put our minds at ease since this was our first time boarding him. I loved the fact that I knew Rocky wouldn't be locked up in a cage at night like the kennels and would be allowed to sleep anywhere. Their place was also clean and very welcoming. Your pet will get lots of hugs and loving with these two wonderful people!! We definitely recommend them!!
Ashley and Gibson took great care of our two dogs over Thanksgiving! Ashley was so responsive in setting up the reservation. She was also very understanding about any concerns we had and our dogs' needs. We got adorable picture updates, and it looked like our little terriers were having a great time. We would definitely use Ashley and Gibson again in the future and would encourage anyone looking for a great, attentive sitter to do the same!
Wonderful experience with Ashley. She has been an incredibly thoughtful caretaker of my special dog. Keeping me informed daily with photo and video updates. I will continue to use her for future trips and I travel often. I couldnt be more please and I highly recommend her.
My inaugural experience with Dog Vacay surpassed my expectations thanks to Ashley! My dog has been known to get separation anxiety but he displayed none of that behavior because he was having too much fun. I wouldn't hesitate to put Howie's care in their capable hands (and paws) again. Very nice and caring dog owners.
FANTASTIC hosts! This was our first time using DogVacay, so we were a bit nervous about the whole process.

We couldn't be happier with how Ashley and Gibson took care of our dogs. Both of our dogs have some special needs, and they were in great hands.

Daily updates.. photos, videos... I think Ashley and Gibson were taking care of *our* separation anxiety as much as the doggies! =)

Very VERY happy with the whole experience. Highly recommended, and can't wait to use them for our next vacation.

Thanks so much!

Ashley was an amazing petsitter! This was my first time using DogVacay and naturally, I was very nervous but she was so great and easy to work with.

I was going on vacation for 5 days and needed someone to watch my crazy, energetic (but sweet) beagle, Pepper. During our meet and greet, I provided Ashley a list of "Pepper basics" and instructions. We talked through them including a list of Pepper's nuances (i.e. pulls on the leash, loves to eat toilet paper, nose to the ground) and since she has 2 dogs of her own, she was pretty familiar with a lot of the items on my list. I told her about my concerns and she was very understanding.

One of the most notable things about Ashley is that she's extremely communicative. The days leading up to my vacation, she would follow up to see what time I would drop Pepper off and that I was all set with the reservation. During my vacation, I would receive 2-3+ updates on Pepper via email including photos and short videos. I was so relieved to hear (and see) how well Pepper was doing and that Ashley wasn't having any trouble at all. Another great thing about Ashley is how flexible she is. She is very accommodating to dates/times and really worked well with my schedule (including the flight delay back).

In short, YES, I would recommend her to my friends and fellow DogVacay users and YES, I would use her again in the future. Her overnight rate is beyond reasonable and most of all, Pepper had a great time! I'm so glad to have found Ashley.
My dog Colby stayed with Ashley and Gibson Labor Day weekend 2013. I was a little nervous because it was my first time using dog vacay and because he was diagnosed last December with Cushings and has some ongoing medical issues as a result. Ashley and Gibson could not have been more on top of everything and sweet and responsible. They were amazing. Before I even got home from dropping him off, I had a text video of Colby eating his breakfast. Ashley sent pics and videos - not constantly but just enough so I could rest assure all weekend while away that all was ok. I could tell in the pics that Colby felt at home and was comfortable and being well cared for. When I picked him up, he was happy to see me but I don't think he was so eager to leave! At any rate, Ashley and Gibson loved and cared for my dog as if he was their own and took such good care of him. Next time I need a place to bring him for a few days, no question, I'm hitting them up. Thanks you guys!!
We left Phoebe with Ashley and her boyfriend for a couple of days and we couldn't ask for a better place for my baby. Ashley was so loving and sent us many pictures and videos. :) Phoebe had so much fun with her dogs (they're adorable btw) and the daily walks. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my girl. :) Phoebe says "hi".
Ashley was amazing and Kacie had a great time as usual! Ashley's home is always neat and the dogs are relaxed. Kacie walks right in and makes herself at home. She got cuddled and walked an extra time and best of all I don't worry when she's there.
Ashley was wonderful, her dogs are adorable and very sweet and my pup immediately took to her. She was willing to work with my schedule, she was super nice and accommodating and the best part, she sent plenty of pictures and videos to put my mind at ease. Mohawk was very happy with her. I absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to treat their dog as her own.
Ashley and her boyfriend were so friendly and accommodating! Their apartment is lovely and in a very convenient location, close to the subway. They sent photos and videos of my dog each day. I will definitely use them again!
We had a great experience with Ashley. She kept both Kacie (my dog) and me happy.

Kacie -- by giving her attention, play time with her well-behaved dogs, and even an enrichment puzzle toy to keep her busy, and me by keeping me in the loop as to how she was doing during her stay and following her walking and feeding instructions without issue.

We'll definitely be back!
Ashley and Gibson were amazing hosts and sent us plenty of pictures and videos of Bailey during his stay. They have 3 other dogs as well so Bailey had 24/7 playtime.

Bailey is now exhausted from playing with them and their other doggies for 4 straight days. Success! :P

We will definitely use them again in the future. Highly recommend, even for people in the city (conveniently 1 stop into Queens, right out of the Queensboro station)
