About Liz & Robert

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Robert and Liz having been living with dogs and cats since they were born! Liz is a graduate student with a very flexible schedule and plenty of time for walks, trips to the park, and especially cuddling! Robert works at UNC, but loves having dogs to play with and take on hikes at night and during the weekends. While we don't currently have a pet of our own, we love all animals and will treat yours as if they were ours!

We love dogs of all ages, shapes, and sizes, and make sure they get plenty of playtime both indoors and out. Our house has no rules, unless you want there to be. For us, nothing is off limits to your best friend, but we understand and will abide if you prefer things such as no time on the furniture!

We love providing photos and videos of your pets and will send them to you as frequently as you would like; we like to send at least one update a day.

We happily cater to any dietary and medical needs, and have experience with dogs of all ages and needs from a hyper puppy to a sleepy senior dog.

***Note: We love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! Rate is $20/night. We're happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you’re away or have them come stay with us. We are also open to watching birds, hamsters, etc.

We just want to help you take care of your furry friend when you are away or need some extra help. Keeping you and yours happy is what makes us happy!

***We do take last minute bookings if we are available, but ONLY for returning clients. We require meet n greets with new clients so MUST be able to have enough time between request and the start of the reservation to arrange a meeting. Thank you!

Liz was great! She was super responsive, flexible with timing and sent updates throughout the day. I can tell Rufus had a fun time with her and was well cared for. I highly recommend!
Liz was great! She was super responsive, flexible with timing and sent updates throughout the day. I can tell Max had a fun time with her and was well cared for. I highly recommend!
Liz & Robert were great! I felt completely confident with their ability to care for my dog and the pictures they sent looked like Rufus felt right at home. I was a little worried he wouldn't want to leave. Thanks Liz & Robert!
My active cattle dog was in no hurry to leave. He was clearly having fun.
Liz and Robert were great! We met with them ahead of time to make sure everyone would get along. They were very flexible with drop off and pick up times and even texted us updates of our little girl Cece while we were gone. We wil definitely use them again!
This was our first time with Liz and Robert, having been recommended to them by some friends. They are very friendly, and convenient to our home. They were also very flexible on drop-off and pick-up times. Our puppy (Olivia, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, about 17 months old) seemed to have had a good time and looked to have been well cared-for.
Our dog had no complaints! We received photos and were pleased that they occasionally included another dog for the walking. We were pleased that they came a day or 2 ahead to meet our dog and be familiar with the surroundings. There was a little disappointment that we did not know that we were outside the service area until too late and were charged an additional $10.00. Perhaps would consider that in the future before booking.
Robert and Liz are the best . They came and stayed with our 2 labs and gave them a weekend of TLC and fun. They managed to keep their cool through an almost day long power outage caused by Hurricane Mathew. Our dogs love them and so do we!
We left our fourteen year old maltipoo, Cleo, with Liz and Robert while we attended a UNC football game. Their home is very close to the campus so it could not have been more convenient. Dropoff was easy.

Cleo mainly likes to snooze. Robert said he let her snuggle in a chair beside him for much of the time so I know she was very content. Two other dogs were boarded but I think Cleo mostly ignored them.
This is the first time I've used Dog Vacay, and Liz and Robert were out of this world. My seven month old puppy was going to be away from people she knew for the first time, and they handled everything so well and with smiles. I even received picture updates from them to see that my Eva was getting some nice rest. I've already booked my next reservation with them, and will definitely continue to do so from here on out!
Mila had a great time. This was the first time we left her alone and with Liz and Robert we are sure to do it again. They sent us pictures and understood how important was for us to know about how Mila was doing.
I would give Liz and Robert more stars if they were available! We have 3 dogs that were cared for so beautifully. Our family was able to enjoy our vacation without worrying. It was so nice to get daily pictures of them and email updates. This is a terrific service and Liz and Robert are the best! The dogs and I would love to have them anytime we go away.
Louie stays with Liz and Robert for daycare frequently and he has the best time. He loves people (and other dogs) so I feel so comfortable knowing he's got nice humans to cuddle with as opposed to a commercial daycare.
We had a great experience with Liz and Robert! Our dog loved them, and felt very comfortable in their home. Liz and Robert offered a meet-and-greet in their space before our dog vacay was even booked so he could meet them and get used to them and their space, which was really helpful for our dog, and for us too, to feel comfortable with new pet sitters. Liz and Robert are very professional (and nice!), and all went very smoothly. And of course, we loved the regular photos and updates while were were away. We have already booked another dog vacay with them, and are excited to use them again in the future!
Liz and Robert provide such a friendly and loving home for our senior citizen doggie. She needed a daily pill while at their house and they got her to take it no problem. We are so thankful to have connected with them!
Liz and Robert took great care of Waffles! They sent a picture update each day which helped us to know that he was in good hands. We will be using them again later this summer!
Violet had a great time, and we loved the text message pics throughout the day!
Liz and Robert were kind and attentive, caring and accommodating. They took wonderful care of our little rascal and sent several photo updates to reassure us that she was doing well. They were also extremely patient and accommodating as our pick up and drop off times shifted. I would feel very comfortable leaving our dog with them again, and I highly recommend them!
Liz and Robert are the best. I was a nervous wreck about leaving Lila for two weeks. First they came for a "getting to know you visit" so we could see if it was a good match. Lila was cleverly suspicious but they were both engaging and respectful of her reticence.They are bright, grounded, calm, and sensible, which was everything I needed to drag myself out of the house on departure day. They sent pictures and reports and we never had one moment of worry during our trip. When we returned Lila was at ease and with no sign of that post trip doggie bitterness that requires us to wait days for canine forgiveness. I am completely delighted and I might even look forward to my next trip!
Liz and Robert were great with communication, took excellent care of our pup, and were flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. Made our wedding weekend truly worry-free.
Liz and Robert were great. Super flexible, sent lots of pictures while I was away and they are clearly "dog people." Two paws up!
Liz and Robert K were great sitters. Cooper had a blast and we appreciated that he was getting some attention. I would definitely call them again.
Luca had a great day visit with Liz and he is excited he will be returning next week for an overnight stay.
Rocky had a great stay with Liz and Robert! They gave him lots of love, made sure he got enough exercise and even took him on a hike one day. He was happy to see us when we picked him up but sad to leave his new friends.
Liz and Robert kept us posted with daily (sometimes twice or three times daily) pictures and took great care of our pup. Would definitely use them again!
Our 12+ year old golden had a GREAT stay with Liz and Robert! They gave him lots of attention and care. We're not positive he wanted to leave when we picked him up - we will definitely be booking a stay when we are out of town again.
Liz and Robert did an amazing job with Beanie! I would not hesitate to book them again.
We feel so fortunate to have found Liz and Robert! With a temporary move to Chapel Hill and a house full of animals, we have needed a lot of help keeping them cared for and happy while we are at work or away. Liz and Robert have been so flexible---afternoon walks, overnight visits at our home---it is hard to believe they have other clients! But, that is just a testament to their flexibility and conscientious, caring level of service. We will definitely continue to use Liz and Robert and are so happy we found them (probably not as happy as our pups and cat!).
Liz & Robert did a *great* job with Shadow. They sent pictures every day, even a video. We will definitely have them watch our boy again in the future. Thanks!
Liz and Robert were wonderful. They accommodated my last minute request and went out of their way to make sure my little one was happy and safe. I would recommend them and will use them again!
Awesome! They clearly love dogs and took great care of mine. He was happy and healthy when he came back. Would definitely book with them again!
Ruby was lucky enough to get to play with another pup for her daycare and she got her exercise for sure! Liz and Robert are super sweet and were very gentle with my precious cargo. Highly recommend!
Liz & Robert are exceptional DogVacay hosts! They are responsive, flexible, and friendly. They treat Pippi well with lots of walks, play time, and trips to the dog park. I get pictures at least once a day; she always looks like she is enjoying herself. This was our second reservation with Liz & Robert, and we will continue to use them as our DogVacay host of choice!
Liz and Robert are AMAZING! They took just great care of our puggle, Trane. He got tons of extra snuggles and plenty of outdoor time. They also made sure to keep us informed with daily photos. Trane was excited to see us when we picked him up, but I know he had a wonderful time with Liz and Robert. We will definitely be using them again!
Liz and Robert were incredibly invested in quality care for my pup. I loved the text photos they sent throughout the weekend. When I picked him up, it was clear that he felt at home there, and was really happy! It made me feel good about leaving him with someone. Highly recommend these two!
Our puppy always comes home tired! Liz and Robert are fantastic communicators and have been extremely accommodating with our schedules and requests for Izzy. They have been wonderful!
Liz and Robert were lovely hosts for our pup! I love that they don't have a dog themselves because she doesn't always love other dogs and it meant she got way more attention. They were very responsive about her quirks and particularities (elderly dog only likes to eat her food prepared a certain way and is not great with steps/stairs) and great at sending us updates during our trip, as well as communicating for the meet & greet and to schedule the visit. They also checked in on our kitties for the two full days that we were gone, which helped us with peace of mind. I would definitely send our doggie on vacay with them again!
Great experience and they send photo updates which is wonderful!
Liz took excellent care of our dog. She sent pics during our dog's stay. We will definitely choose her again for our dog's care.
Great hosts. Readily available for Meet and Greet the day following initial request. Immediately opened their home to my energetic puppy without concern. I loved the daily pictures/ updates... definitely put me at ease to know he was being well taken care of. Gunner was tired the day I picked him up, so he must have been kept good and busy. Thank you!
Liz and Robert were great! They've watched my cats twice now, once at their place, and once at my own place. Both times were wonderful, and I was sent a lot of photo and video updates, and was able to relax and enjoy my time away knowing they were well taken care of. So helpful and nice, will definitely be keeping them in mind for any future trips!
They were wonderful!
Liz and Robert were the perfect dog sitters! They were available to do a meet-and-greet on short notice before booking, and they made the drop-off and pick-up process quick and easy! We also appreciated getting updates while we were away so we knew everything was going well. Chip's looking forward to staying with you again!
