Definitely five star worthy! Lovely couple, obviously passionate about dogs. Left my baby with them for 3 days, got so many texts, pictures, and updates. I've never seen my girl so worn out from all the walking and playing she did all weekend with all the other dogs. I was afraid she wouldn't want to come home. I will definitely be booking with Maria and Alvaro again. ?? Thank you both!
We have never been away from our girls because we just never felt comfortable and I am forever in Maria and Alvaro's debt as we now will be able to travel to see our families.. they were amazing and gave me such a sense of peace knowing my girls were in great care.
This was my first time using petvacay and it was super easy and convenient! Maria and Alvaro were fantastic! Their home was extremely welcoming, clean and they sent me updates several times a day. Great experience!
Maria was very good with my dogs. She kept them busy and always let me know how they were doing. Will use again and highly recommend Maria.
Maria and Alvaro did an amazing job looking after my 2 dogs (a pitbull and a pug) they had less than 24 hrs notice but they assured me they would take great care of my dogs and they did very loving and caring people. Also, throughout the day they send me pictures and videos reassuring my husband and I that everything was ok. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend there services
Maria and Alvaro were wonderful hosts to Panzer! The communication was thorough throughout the entire process from booking to picking up my boy. The daily pics and video kept my mind at ease knowing Panzer was having fun and being well taken care of! Thank you!
Alvaro is excellent with dogs, he really understand them and the dogs understand him. My doberman had an amazing time with him and the other dogs. He took her out daily to the park and always sent me pics and videos. I will definitely use them again.
Alvaro was a wonderful, strong presence who knew how to keep my spoiled-rotten Chucky (and a few other big dogs) in line, and sent me constant video and photo updates of the fun he was having while I was away. I'd recommend and will use Maria and Alvaro's services again.
Maria y Alvaro were awesome with Ranger!! We dropped him off early and they welcomed him with open arms from the very start. They sent us pics and videos multiple times throughout the day and even gave us some tips for Ranger!! We will definitely use them again when we go On vacay or even if we want to leave for a weekend. I was nervous at first but they calmed my fears and left a long lasting impression on myself and Ranger!!
AMAZING! Words cant explain how good I feel about leaving my baby boy with them! They really go above and beyond for your baby!!! I recommend them 1000%. Alvaro specializes with pit bulls and big dogs and he's great with them and they love him back for that.
We were so lucky and blessed to find Maria and Alvaro. They took care of our dogs during 12 days! we missed them a lot but these guys were so kind that they send us daily reports and fun stories of their adventures. Having someone giving so much love to your pets instead of having them sitting and bored on a cold kenel or pets hotel room is priceless, we will be forever grateful with Alvaro and Maria. We for sure board our dogs with them again.

We did not leave enough food for the last couple of days, they did not mind of giving them of their own dog food, of course first asking if we agreed.

Next day of pick up, we were the ones sending pictures since they missed them :)

We highly recommend Maria and Alvaro, they do not limit their service to pet sitting but also work on their behavior. e.g. "Soja" our youngest (2.5 years old), came home as a new dog, thanks to Alvaro spending a lot of time getting her to a balanced state.

Thank you!

Chicho, Soja, Nino, Alex and Baby Julian.
excelent ..........
Very friendly and responsive. Would highly recommend and use again
Maria was very nice and very concerned about the well being of my dog Shadow. I love that they are also dog parents and that they live near a dog park so I know my dog got a lot of social time with other dogs, which I really support as dogs are pack animals and they need to be with other dogs. I definitely will ask them to take care of my dog again in the future.
What a blessing finding Maria and her husband Alvaro we were nervous about leaving our pitbull because we knew he is kind off nasty around other dogs but Alvaro assured us he could break him of his bad habit and he did. While we were away they sent us pictures of our dog Tank sharing his doggie bed sound asleep with another dog. Alvaro gave us some pointers on how to control Tank. The only drawback was Tank looked depressed when we got home he misses his new friends. We will for sure use them again and again.
Maria responded quickly and kept me updated daily. My dog loved her and was well taken care of
I was very happy with the care, and connection that Maria gave me during my dog stay. I was initially nervous because I saw a large pit-bull and several other dogs, however she updated me frequently with pictures that put me right at ease. I would definitely use her in the future.
Maria and Alvaro were very attentive and caring when it came to dogsitting! They often sent pics and video of my dog lounging in the house, on walks, or at the dog park. They took good care of my dog for about a week with no problems. They do love dogs!
Maria shows a lot of attention to Zuley. Sends me pics and videos of Zuley walking! Will try to use Maria everytime.
Maria is wonderful! Peeve (my dog) has never been sociable with other people or dogs, I was afraid to leave him with someone who has other dogs - so we set up a Meet and Greet and Peeve instantly connected with her and her other dogs. I was sent amazing pictures and videos throughout the 6 night stay and was very satisfied with how happy Peeve was during MY vacation hahaha. I will definitely recommend her as she is my point of contact for all my future vacations!!! A+++
Fantastic!!!!! Maria took great care of my dog. Thunder can be a little nervous and has always come back a little bit thinner from any boarding situation, but this time she came back happy and well fed:) I got tons of pictures and she looked like she had a great time!
Maria was great with our dog! She was very responsive from the beginning and kept us updated with pictures and text messages throughout the day. I could tell that our dog was being well taken care of and having fun. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter!
Maria was super responsive and very attentive with my dog. I really felt that she took care of him as if he were one of her own. She frequently sent pictures of him during his stay with her and I could see that he was having a blast. He actually came home exhausted from so much fun. Very satisfied.
she is lovely with my bbs
Maria was very nice with my bbs.., Kayla & Lucky were happy to be there with her... I will repeat the reservation if I need it
Truly grateful that Maria was so willing for an extremely early am drop off. Maria was very understanding when other told me no. Maria tool great care of Kobe (dog). She sent pics almost on an hourly bases.. speaks both spanish and English which is convenient. . Will definitely use maria again!!
Maria muchas gracias!
I am so grateful that I found Maria on dogvacay. The attention that she gave Max was absolutely amazing. We left him with her for 5 days and she sent me pictures and updates everyday. She walked him and took him to the doggy parks. Max was in heaven with all the love and attention that he got from Maria. Thank you Maria you are truly amazing!!
Maria provided us with the best care possible. She took him on long walks, and sent us pictures and updates.
