Since we adopted our Bella we have always done traditional overnight kennels but lately we have been feeling extremely guilty leaving her overnight so we decided to give Dog Vacay a try - WOW is all we have to say!! Rolf and Jennifer were INCREDIBLE!! First of all, they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Second of all, they LOVE dogs! Our poor Bella had an upset stomach when we did our "Meet and Greet" and they completely understood and were prepared to take care of her if she still felt sick the next day. (Thank goodness Bella felt fine the next day though!) We felt right at ease leaving her for the short weekend and the picture and video updates Rolf sent were so wonderful!! She was very loved for the weekend and we cannot recommend Rolf and Jennifer enough!! Thank you so much for taking care of Bella and we will be repeat customers for sure! For the first time we didn't feel guilty leaving Bella for the weekend. Thank you so much!!

Excellent and professional. Pictures, updates, and awesome communication. So glad we found them so we can feel comfortable traveling in the future.
We were thrilled to have our dog stay in a family home while we were away. We've had bad experiences boarding our dog in the past. It was very stressful for her as they didn't allow her to have anything soft, her bed, her teddy bear etc due to choking hazards. That meant our dog was in a room, on the floor from 7pm when the doggie daycare closed until 7am the next morning. Rolf and Jennifer took excellent care of our dog and texted us pics throughout the day. The photos showed our dog looking so happy and so content and obviously well cared for. This was in stark contrast to the photos and phone calls sent by the doggie daycare/ boarding facility. Our dog was stressed, sick and miserable. We will never board her again. Only Dog Vacay for our sweet girl. If you can get a reservation for your dog to stay with Rolf and Jennifer, do it!

Live here in Lombard and have had Rolf and Jennifer care for my dog a few times and feel so comfortable leaving my precious puppy in their care. They are the best!!
Rolf and Jennifer were fantastic! Bolt was extremely well taken care of; it was evident from all the texts, pictures and frequent communication that they loved having him there! I would highly recommend Rolf and Jennifer to care for your dog!
Rolf and Jennifer are fabulous! They always take exceptional care of my dog, Leo. Rolf and Jennifer always keep Leo excersized and entertained while I'm away; everything from truck rides to playing in the pool! I also love the periodic text updates with pictures of Leo having fun. He definitely gets the 5-star resort experience with them. So much so, that I sometimes feel badly when I have to pick him up and take him home. Ha! After seeing the condition (mentally and physically) that Leo was in after I had him stay at a typical dog boarding place a couple years ago, it is such a blessing to have found Rolf and Jennifer. They have truly made mine and Leo's lives so much easier.

Flynn had a wonderful time with Jennifer and Rolf. They treated him like a part of their family and he felt very comfortable with them. It was comforting to receive daily pictures and updates of how he was doing. We had a good laugh from the silly pictures they sent. He seemed bored when we brought him home; I think he had more fun with them then he does at home. We will definately be using Jennifer and Rolf in the future.

Rolf and Jennifer were great hosts for my dog Max. He was well cared for and seemed very content in all the pictures that were sent to me. They obviously love dogs! I would use them again in a heartbeat!
We were absolutely thrilled with the experience Chief had with Rolf and Jennifer. Not only was their home, pool, yard awesome - their genuine care for our dog was heartwarming. It was truly a vacation for our 'just turned one year old' golden retriever but also a valuable training experience for swimming and socializing with others. The pictures/texts and even video updates kept us smiling all day and we were able to share them with our adult kids. We want to go away again just so Chief can enjoy the company of such wonderful dog lovers. Rolf and Jennifer even gave us some tips to work with our dog. They are worth every penny and more. I'd give them more stars if I could!

Rolf and Jennifer, were the best. Last minute reservation, couldn't have asked for better. They really came through for Danjy and I when needed for family illness. Thank you × a million. Lisa Overman
FANTASTIC!!!! Our girls told us they had a great time swimming, going on walks, exploring their new surroundings and giving lots of hugs and kisses.
Rolf and Jennifer opened their home and their hearts to our girls and I know we will send them back when we all need another vacation!

Rolf and Jennifer took absolutely wonderful care of our dog Lola while we were away. Lola had never been boarded before so we felt more comfortable with her being somewhere that gave her lots of love and attention and that is exactly what we found! We truly enjoyed receiving the daily updates Rolf and Jennifer sent and looking at photos capturing her enjoying her stay and afternoons in the pool! Lola loves other dogs so it was fantastic that they invited the neighbor dog over for a little play time! I can't say enough wonderful things and truly appreciate how well they cared for our dog. We will definitely be booking again with them and I know Lola will be excited to return!

Our usual place was completely booked for the weekend of our son's wedding and even though Rolf and Jennifer were not looking for any more visitors that weekend, they were nice enough to appreciate the BIND that we were in and opened their home up to our two girls, Izzy and Binks!!!!!

Not only did they save us that weekend by taking them in, but we could truly enjoy ourselves knowing they they were in such good hands!

They sent us updates several times a day on how they were doing and even included pictures!!

Their love, compassion and concern for animals is very obvious. We would HIGHLY recommend them.

As always, Cassidy had a great stay with Rolf and Jennifer. She loves them and loves staying there. In fact, when my sister came to pick her up, she didn't want to leave! Thanks for always taking such good care of her, we never worry when she is with you!

Rolf and Jennifer were great with Hopper. They took him on walks, brushed, and helped him with the stairs. They were also able to do an extra day for us. Will most definitely will use their services again.
Rolf and Jen are true dog lovers. They took such great personal care of Chaser, and carried him up the stairs when he couldn't walk them. Great people, beautiful place for pups to play, and incredibly caring. Thank you guys!
Thank you for a great vacation for our Rosie! Great pics and updates! So awesome to have her snuggled up with you, joining you for family get together and giving her a great Christmas while we were away. Thank you so much!!! Marie
I am so thankful to Jennifer and Rolf for taking such good care of my two dogs while I was away for 6 days. This was the first time I left my animals with someone other than a family member. My dogs were exercised, fed, comforted and made to feel like they were in as close to their real home as possible. When I picked up my two dogs they were happy, relaxed and well cared for. This experience was everything and more than I had hoped for. Thank you again Jennifer and Rolf.

Rolf and Jennifer have done it again. Benson came home from their house mad at us for taking her away from her new favorite people. They are so wonderful and she is always worn out when she comes home. I used to feel terrible leaving Benson with any sitters but with Rolf and Jennifer I couldn't be happier with them. At our latest drop off Benson attacked Uncle Rolf with so many face kisses he almost fell over. Benson also helped Aunt Jenn fold laundry so hopefully she starts helping me at home. If I could give 100 stars I would but I can only give 5. Thanks again!!!!

Wonderful as always! Cassidy had a fun weekend of swimming and walks. Thanks for the cute pictures too. I'm sure Cassidy is looking forward to her next visit.
Scout did great with Rolf and Jennifer. She loves playing and lounging and their yard is perfect for all of those things!
Rolf and Jennifer took such good care of Cassidy! She absolutely loves going there. We really feel like this is a vacation for Cassidy too. She runs into their house upon arriving.. As if she is saying.. "Yea, I'm here!"

This time she did have a little bit of a tummy bug, but they took good care of her, made her rice and chicken and she was back to normal in a day or two.

Thanks so much for opening up your home to our pooch! It's wonderful to go on vacation and not have to worry.

Raven had a great time. She tends to get nervous in new surroundings, especially on the 4th of July with the fireworks in the area. Rolf and Jennifer did their best to keep her calm and limit her exposure to the noise. Based on the pictures and updates, she did better than expected. Thank you so much!

Rolf and Jen were such sweet, nice hosts for our black lab, Wally. He's an older pup and generally likes to sleep/snuggle all day, and they were definitely able to accommodate and even spoil him a bit! They sent us pictures of him all weekend, just to let us know how he was doing and show us that he was in good spirits. It was truly a vacation for Wally, and I would not hesitate to call them up again!

We love bringing our dog Abby to Rolf and Jennifer's every time we go on vacation - Abby just loves them!! They send the most amazing updates with beautiful pics and video clips of our dog having the time of her life. I cannot say enough great things about them - they are fantastic and Abby is so excited to stay with them - can't wait to see them again soon!! Thank you again Rolf and Jennifer!!! :)

I am almost tempted to leave a horrible review because I don't want anyone else to discover how wonderful Rolf and Jennifer are. They sent us pictures and email updates several times each day we were gone and Benson got to go swimming, help garden, watch tv, and even sleep on the bed. When we brought her home last night she seemed to be very disappointed that they weren't around. She got home and was so tired from having fun all weekend that she ate a little food and got right up on the couch to sleep. We will definitely be using their services again and couldn't have been more pleased with the experience.

We had never left our dogs off anywhere that wasn't with family and friends but Rolf and Jennifer made the whole experience wonderful! They were easy to communicate with, loved receiving the picture updates of the dog, and felt like they were in a really warm - caring house. Would def. use again if we ever needed. A big thank you!

Once again Rolf and Jennifer took excellent care of my dog. I don't feel guilty leaving her with them, as I know that they will treat her like their own dog. I would highly recommend them to other dog lovers looking for a safe and loving place to leave their dog!

My dogs just LOVE staying here!!! My favorite thing is the email updates with picture attached. Definitely makes the going away easier for me.
Rolf and Jennifer are the absolute best caregivers ever! Our dog Abby was just there for a week and I cannot say enough how wonderful her stay was. They kept me updated every day with the best pictures I've ever received - Abby lounging on the raft, swimming with them, wearing a lei, oh they were just too cute! Abby was so happy with them we knew she wouldn't want to come home! They have a lovely home and set-up for dogs. We are so thankful to have found them. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Rolf and Jennifer for the excellent stay! :)

As always, Rolf and Jennifer went above and beyond to care for our dogs while we were away.
Thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of Cassidy! Rolf and Jennifer are the best, easy going, great people who really just love dogs.

This is Cassidy's third time with them and she is so excited each time we bring her there. I really think she considers this her home away from home.

She really loves that she can swim in the pool and Rolf sent some great pictures during the week. We would all look forward to the updates and seeing what a good time Cassidy was having.

I never worried once while we were gone. I know Cassidy is looking forward to staying with you again soon! Thanks so much!

Rolf and Jennifer were amazing with our dog Winston. We had complete confidence that they would take great care of him and they totally did--exceeded expectations! Winston was happy, we had peace of mind on our trip, it could have worked out better. We will definitely ask Jennifer and Rolf to watch Winston the next time we take a vacation.

Rolf and Jennifer were great hosts to my dog. They really treated her as if she was their own dog, and sent me daily emails and pictures. My dog had so much fun playing with them, that she came home, just laid down on the floor and slept as she had spent the day outside with them. There was no coming home from the kennel 'anxiety' or even that drop off look of where are you leaving me. I will certaintly use Rolf and Jennifer again, in short they are awesome hosts!

Even though our dog Cassidy was only with Rolf and Jennifer for one day, she was happy and relaxed when we picked her up. They took great care of her and I know she will be happy to go back for the week we have scheduled this spring. Thank you for the walks, tummy rubs and general spoiling that she is used to!

I had another great visit with Rolf and Jennifer. They kept taking my picture and letting me drive around in the big truck with them. I can hardly wait for my folks to go away again so I can come back here. Lucy
Thanks Jennifer and Rolf for taking such great care of our fur babies! We loved getting an email update with photos of our pups having a great time! There are a lot of great choices for pet care in our area, but we knew right after the meet and great the Jennifer and Rolf were amazing dog lovers and our pups would be in great hands. We appreciate all the special attention and care you gave Annie and Oakley while they stayed with you. I know they are looking forward to their next vacation with you both! Thanks again!! :)

I don't think our dog wanted to leave......Rolf and Jennifer are great!!! They sent updates with pictures attached that just made our day!! We even printed a couple of them out so we could carry them with us, especially the one of Freckles standing on a raft looking like she's ready to surf. It made our vacation much more enjoyable knowing she was safe and having a great time.

Rolf and Jen are the best option for my dogs. The dogs absolutely love going there and forget about me right awayl when they get there. It's a perfect environment for happy dogs.
Rolf and Jennifer were excellent hosts to our 2 dogs. They made the entire process very easy. They took amazing care of our dogs, probably better than we do ourselves! They communicated with us throughout our vacation, which put me at ease, as I knew the dogs were being treated royally. My only concern was that I wasn't sure if my dogs would want to come back home with me. :) I would highly recommend them as hosts and would not hesitate to bring my dogs back to them in the future.

This was the first time I have used the service but was very pleased with the whole process. Rolf and Jennifer were as affable as could be and Lucy and I took to them right away. No doubt Lucy had a great vacation as evidenced by pictures of her in the pool and so all bodes well for future visits.

This was the first time we were away from Freckles and felt very comfortable leaving her with Rolf & Jennifer. Their response time was quick and sent updates regarding her stay. I think she had a better time than we did :- )
Rolf and Jen are the best hosts that ever happened to my dogs. My dogs have now stayed with them 4 times and feel like they are part of the family. They have a great space for the dogs, a beautiful home and yard, and best of all for my dogs, a pool for summer fun. Rolf and Jen are true dog lovers, very caring and knowledgeable. They send me pictures and daily updates, as well as a full report when I return. They are so attentive to both dogs, understand the different personalities, and have definitely become the first place I go to when I need dog care. I could not be happier that I found them!

Our dog Zoey had a wonderful time with Jennifer E. She warmed up quickly to the environment change and was treated like a queen. She was the only pet in the home and couldn't get enough of the nonstop attention and love she received. We are lucky to have found Jennifer E!
