About Ilke

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a small family. Me, my wife and our puppy live very close to an amazing park. I am available most of the time. I love being outside and I enjoy my time so much when I am with animals. I take my puppy out three times a day and we have so much fun playing with other dogs and experiencing new adventures. We would like meet new friends.

This host lives in a small apartment and not a townhouse like he has listed on his profile, so there is no yard like a townhouse would have.

On the first day he had our dog off the leash in an unenclosed park (not allowed according to DogVacay guidelines) and then left him at his rental apartment unsupervised to go shopping (he listed 24/7 supervision on his profile). My dog experienced separation anxiety and pooped and peed on the floor. Instead of recognizing this state of distress dogs can have while being alone in a completely new environment (there are articles on recognizing and dealing with separation anxiety on DogVacay), this host panicked and told us to return home early from our trip. He blamed us and said our dog must not be house trained. Our dog is house trained and has never displayed this behavior before. He was supposed to call the helpline before asking us to return home, but didn't.

When we returned to pick up our dog, Ilke's partner was furious and said we should be ashamed for leaving our un-house trained dog with them. I calmly explained what separation anxiety was and that he had no control over it. We felt bad that our dog had made a mess, but her out of control anger and leaving him alone had contributed to this behavior in our dog. Our dog was shaking and meek when we got him back, and I felt terrible for leaving him there with these people.

I do have to mention DogVacay customer service was great afterwards.
