About Douglas

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We own a Shiba Inu, as well as two cats, two caged birds and pond fish. Although we bred birds and dogs in the past, our "pack" now includes both fostered and adopted homeless dogs and cats. I have been grooming dogs since my teenage years. Bathing and all breed grooming are available. In addition, we have been hosting dogs for the past 12 years. We also have cats and birds that we visit when the owners are away. Cynthia is an Emergency Room Nurse working 3 days a week, and has experience in administering injections and/or medications to dogs, cats and exotics. She expertly handles birds and reptiles.

Our yard is very safe. It is completely fenced and our dog and guests enjoy swimming in our inground pool during the summer months. In the winter it is secured with a safety cover.
Our house is on the water, and guest dogs are always invited to go on boat rides with us if they like. If they show fear, none of us go. They are never left alone! Our customers say that they never feel guilty about leaving their pet with us. They know that their dog is also on vacation at our home. They all report that the dogs become happy and excited when they pull up in front. As for feeding, we make our own dog food in a crock pot with lamb and vegetables because our Shiba Inu is allergic to chicken, potato, barley, rice, turkey and fish among other things. Some of our customers like their pets to have our homemade food; some have provided their own dog food.We are happy to feed as our customers require. Potty accidents happen, and we are not upset by this. Our entire home will be open to your pet. You can relax knowing that your pet will be loved and cared for like our own. Our pets have no jealousy or aggression issues towards dogs that stay with us. So we are sure that your fur baby will be happy and excited to come here the next time they visit!

Doug and Cindy take good care of my Pup.
Buca Loves going on Vacay! Doug & Cindy take great care of our girl! We never have to worry when she is with them. It is so hard to leave our pets but they make it very easy. They send pictures that make you smile & laugh.... thanks Doug & Cindy.
Our dogs felt truly at home with Doug and Cynthia! We loved getting pictures and updates from them every day and when we came to pick up our pups after 10 days away, it seemed like they didn't even want to leave! Trixie and Booker have stayed here for the day before but never overnight and after the experience we had they will DEFINITELY be back.

Doug and his wife were extremely professional and responded very quickly to my inquiry.

Doug immediately invited me into his home to see the space my dog would have to explore and walk around in. I received several picture updates letting me know how my little one was doing. I could not be any more pleased with the service received.

As always, they were great.
Douglas and his wife are awesome with my three dogs, I don't leave them with anyone until I found them, my husband had surgery and D outlaws was nice enough to drop my dog off for me !❤️
Douglas and his wife are awesome with my three dogs, highly recommend them!
Douglas and his wife r fabulous with my three dogs, so happy I found them!
Doug and Cyndy are passionate about pets . Very dependable , respond promptly to questions , follow instructions . Did a great job .
Bunny had a good vacation. We returned to find her happy and healthy, and would not hesitate to leave her with Doug in the future.
Doug called Molly his pal and based on the comfort which appeared to be present when I picked her up, it seems so. I would not hesitate to ask Doug to sit Molly again. Thanks
Doug was great! I had a wedding and had to drop my 8 month old golden doodle Reilly off early in the day and it was no problem. I was emailed pictures of Reilly while he was playing with the other dogs which was awesome. Also you can't beat the price. I felt completely comfortable with Dougs care and will definitely use him in the future.

Our Lab Layla had a great stay with Doug. We will certainly use Doug again.
Hari seemed very happy and comfortable at Douglas's home. We were sent pictures throughout the day. We would definitely send him back there.
Douglas walked Rhea, our five month old golden lab mix, this week and we could not have been happier with the experience. He helped me navigate the dog Vacay site and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. When walking Rhea he would send regular photo updates and messages. Thank you Douglas!

Maddie enjoyed her stay! She was exhausted from all the play time! It was comforting that Doug kept in touch with us so we knew how maddie was doing. We received pictures as well as the written updates. Maddie will be visiting again our next vacation! Thanks Doug!

Doug and Cindy are real dog lovers! They seemed to really enjoy taking care of our Lilly. And we felt good about leaving her with them. We will definitely bring her back next time we go away.
We could tell from the minute we met Doug and Cindy that our puppy was going to be in great hands!
Buca loved her Vacay and so did we! Doug sent us pics of Buca doing all the things that Buca loves to do! we always felt that Doug was perfect for Buca!! See you soon! thank you again for taking such good care our baby.
Not only do Doug and Cyndy have a perfect pet haven, inside and out, but lots of love and personal attention they give to each pet, whether it's for daycare or overnight! They also do a fabulous job of sending pictures and updates of your pet. It is nice to see that if I can't be with my guy, he's in awesome hands. I know Brody felt right at home since he crawled into bed to sleep for the night with Doug and Cyndy! Trust your gut and trust your reviews...this is the absolute best of the best! As well, they are very accommodating and understanding pet care providers.

Where to begin...the communication between Doug, his wife and I was above average. They got back to me within the same day and with prompt replies. They are far from irresponsible dog boarders! They made sure that in case of an emergency my dog would have the proper care she needed (although there were no emergencies of any sort). They were very welcoming and hospitable while I waited for check in for my hotel. Layla swam in their pool and really enjoyed playing with the other dogs during her stay there. They kept me updated with videos and photos during her stay and offered me to stop by at any time to check in on her. When I picked her up she was ready on time and she looked relaxed and refreshed. I highly recommend their services to everyone and have even recommended them to my friends since her return. They are definitely one of a kind, a diamond in the rough.

Great experience!
We have been using Doug and Cindy to watch our lab for almost a year now and I couldn't ask for better people to care for my fur baby then them. He gets excited to go he knows when he sees me packing his stuff he going to see his pals and waits by the door for me and when we pull up to the house I don't even need to put his leash on I open the door and he runs straight for the door and waits for someone to open the door. I am very happy with them.

Doug and his wife were incredible with my dogs during their stay. I loved the daily pictures. I highly recommend them. This will be my first choice for our fur babies the next time we go away. Thank you for loving them like we do! Jackie
Charlie loves staying with Doug and Cindy - every morning i drop him off for daycare, he is eager to enter and has a great day. When Charlie gets home he is tired, relaxed, and content. You can trust that your pup will be in great hands!
Not enough words to thank Douglas for taking care of Buddy during one week. Doug was very accommodating and easy going. We received daily pictures, it looked like Buddy was having a great time and this gave us peace of mind during our vacation. The overall experience was excellent. We will ask Doug again for help next time we travel.

Tucker was well cared for.
I was nervous, I never leave my dog with no one or kennel. I look on Google found the Web site, saw the experience, photos and talk to Dough and wife. I feel more confidence to leave Copper with then. Coppet felt like home. I received 2 or 3 photos per day. I will use Doug Vacancy again, give me trust.
Thanks for everything.

I think they were great. When I got home my dogs were very happy.
After my "meet & greet " I felt confident in Doug's
ability ... My reservation was with how my girls would react to a new walker ....
My concerns were resolved after Doug sent to pictures as soon as he got the leashes on .. So I knew my girls warmed up and were in good hands !

We left our dogs with Doug for 11 days while we went to Italy. I never left them for that long before and was very concerned. Doug sent us pictures every day and I was so relieved to see that they were happy and well taken care of. I will definitely use Doug again!

Doug and Cyn took great care of Tucker. He hated to leave them.
I would highly recommend Douglas to anyone who, like myself, may be nervous to board their pet. Douglas is caring animal lover who understands that my dog is part of the family. The daily pictures I received showing BooBoo happy and relaxed really put my mind at ease to enjoy my vacation without worry.

The idea of leaving my sweet little maltipoo Lucy during my first vacation since I got her filled me with guilt and anxiety. But getting to know Doug and Cyndy changed all of that. It was such a relief to see how much they were dog lovers and devoted to caring for their own dogs and would extend that way of being to those pups entrusted into their care. I was surprised at how quickly Lucy became relaxed in their home at the Meet and Greet and was confident (but still honestly a little anxious) it would all work out when I dropped her off for her week of dog vacay. My daily update of pics allowed me to see her settling in and enjoying herself, really becoming a temporary member of the family. As a result, my anxiety had disappeared and I was free to focus on my vacation. I could never thank them enough for the nurturing they gave my little fur baby. Without a doubt they will be my first choice for care for my next vacation. (In fact, I'll be booking them before I even book the trip!) Just knowing I was leaving her in a place of love was key to the peace of mind that allowed me to relax during my time away. It was priceless and precious.

I highly recommend Doug to anyone looking for a reliable and caring dog sitter. Doug has taken care of my dog, Angelina, on several occasions and will be my go to dog sitter for the future.
Doug was fantastic. We could not have been happier. He treated Sallie as good as we do. Will will definitely be using Doug again
Eli stayed with Douglas during his first ever stay away from mom and dad. Douglas and his wife made Eli feel at home. They also constantly updated us with how he was doing which was such a relief! Eli even made new friends. We were so happy with how wonderfully they took care of our precious puppy. I would totally recommend anyone who is going away even for a weekend to stay with Douglas & his wife!

What a great expierence!! We received pictures daily of Bailey and even a video on her on her vacay. It was so comforting knowing that our dog was in such great hands while we were away. She was so well taken care of and loved while we were gone!! I know where our dog will be staying when we go away in the future!! Thank you so much Doug!!

Coppers stay at the Jaynes was just great. He tends to be a very nervous dog who gets streesed easily with changes to his routine. We have tried a few overnight places before but his stay here was by far the best. Doug sent pictures and updates a few times a day. It made us comfortable to know that Copper looked so happy. I will definitely be rebooking with them when we go away again. They are both nice, honest and down to earth animal loving people. So happy to have found them.

Doug and Cindy were excellent! They took terrific care of our dog Buster. They treated him like family. Doug was always sending us pictures of Buster throughout our trip which really put our minds at ease and allowed us to relax and have a great vacation.

Doug and Cindy were wonderful. They took great care of our dog, Darcy. I loved the pictures that Doug sent each day Darcy was in their care. I will definitely request their services again.
We had our 6 months old puppy stay with Doug during the winter break for 5 days. He had a great time. Doug kept us informed with frequent photos of our puppy which eased our "separation" anxiety. We are certain to be back again.
Our little Bichon, Jenna, was very comfortable on her "vacay". Normally she is timid with other dogs but she settled right in. While we were away Doug texted us really cute pictures showing what Jenna was doing. It was a great relief to leave our dog with such caring hosts.

I want to thank Douglas J for taking such great care of Cactus. Cactus was well cared for and loved tremendously during his stay. I couldn't have asked for nicer people to look after my precious boy while I was in Europe. Thank you so much
We are so grateful to Doug for the wonderful care he gave dash . We were able to travel to Florida for a family reunion without any worries. He sent many pictures of dash "relaxing and having fun"that set our minds at ease. We would definitely use Doug again! Rose and john

I'm fairly new to the shore area and was in need of pet sitter that would watch my dog at their house. There were several to choose from and I'm so happy I chose Doug. Doug and his wife were so accommodating and took such good care of my dog. I so glad I found them and I would highly recommend them.

Douglas & Cynthia were very caring with my beagle. They had no problem with his special diet and medication and sent me frequent pictures and notes to keep me up to speed on his first vacation. Will definitely be going back to them when its time for his next adventure.
