About Monie

44 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At Keepers Place dog owners never worry or feel guilty about leaving their pet in our home, because dogs have as much fun on vacation at Keepers Place as their owners do on theirs.

Keepers Place is located in East Orlando (near UCF) on 8 acres along the Big Econlockhatchee River.

Our home is extremely pet friendly and a great place for relaxation after a day of play. We have plenty of room for running, playing, or just sitting in the shade watching the horses and chickens. On warm days we have a great time swimming in the pool.

At Keepers Place you will find that your dog actually becomes part of our family and will be eager to come back for another vacation.

Your pet will be well cared for by 2 very experienced responsible adults. We both have been working with dogs for over 20 years, operating a grooming/boarding/training facility and training service dogs for people with disabilities.

We also offer spa services at Keepers Place. While your pet is here on vacation you can have them groomed or bathed by Sandy a certified groomer of over 20 years.

At Keepers Place we have used our vast knowledge and experience to create a wonderful fun environment for dogs and have been told by many owners that their dogs have more fun here than at home.

Dexter had a wonderful time just like before. He mopes around the house after he gets home because he misses them so.
Monie & Sandy are fantastic! Our dog, Meredith, was so well taken care of, I don't think she missed us a bit! There is plenty of room to run and explore, and swimming too! Monie sent us photos of our dog during her stay, so we were assured she was happy and healthy. An extra plus is their location close to Orlando International (MCO). Highly recommended!!

Mobile and Sandy were AMAZING with our 2 year old lab, Jack. When we arrived she met Jack and showed us around. While on vacation, they sent photos daily and kept us updated. Jack was very happy and comfortable when we picked him up and he's been exhausted from all the playing he did on the farm! This is definitely Jack's new home while we are gone!

Once again, Abbie LOVED her stay her Monie and Sandy. Monie is wonderful at staying in touch after drop off. Abbie was a bit nervous about her stay, as she hasn't been boarded in a few months. But Monie assured me that she would be fine and texted me after I left to let me know that Abbie was enjoying her play time with her new friends. Leaving my pup with Monie and Sandy definitely gives me peace of mind when I'm on vacation! Another plus is how tired Abbie is after her own vacation so we can nap and relax at home together! Thanks again Monie!

Our boxer, Ruby always has a blast whenever staying with Monie! We love that she has ample play room and running space on Monie's property. We also appreciate how Monie keeps us updated with photos and messages about Ruby throughout her stay. We will definitely be bringing Ruby to see Monie again real soon! Thank you, Monie for always giving our dog the best care!

With much gratitude, Dianna and Robert Hostetler

Wonderful
Thank you again for a wonderful stay for Addi and Kobi. I appreciate your flexibility during a stressful move. Knowing that the dogs were safe, loved, and cared for was a big comfort for me. And having them clean and coiffed when I picked them up was, as always, an added benefit.
Read More...
Abbie had a wonderful time with Monie and Sandy! Monie made sure that Abbie was comfortable around the other dogs and sent daily pictures so I could rest easy on vacation and know that my pup was having a wonderful time! Definitely recommend them and I will for sure be using them again soon!

The BEST! They loved Dexter and he loved them. Super knowledgeable ladies that truly have a passion for critters. We will be back again for sure.
The dogs always have a great time with Monie and Sandy! We never have to worry about them being there. They are great!
Our golden retriever, Bella, loves to visit Monie and Sandy. She gets so excited when we arrive and can hardly to see and play with her BFF's at Camp Keepersplace
As always Remy came home looking great. I think she really enjoys her stay at Monie and Sandys Thank you for taking such good care of her
Lucca had a blast playing with her friends at Keeper's Place. It only adds to our vacation knowing she's happy and well taken care of! Thanks, Monie and Sandy!
Awesome as always!!
Monie & Sandy do a Wonderful job of taking care of Oliver when we're out of town !!! Already booking Oliver's time with them for the rest of the year. Thank You Monie & Sandy
Paco enjoyed himself immensely as always.
We can't thank Monie and Sandie enough! Our Baxter has a great time, you can tell by how excited he is when we drive up to the farm! It makes going away so much easier not to have to worry about our 4 legged family member. Highly recommend Monie and Sandy!!!

My dog was so happy! I know because she did not want to come home! She is looking all over the house for her dog friends she met! Thanks for the pictures. It shows how much fun our dog had at we like to call "camp"!
Always an amazing experience. Roxy comes home happy and exhausted every time!! Monie is the most patient and calm animal lover I have had the privelige to meet. Roxy can't wait to go back for another vacation.
Our dog loves staying with Monie and Sandy because they provide lots of fun activities and plenty of room for him to run! I always feel that our dog is well taken care of and I trust Monie and Sandy's years of canine experience. It's a great place!
Monie and Sandy took care of our furry babies like they were their own. We received updates and photos the whole two weeks we were on vacation and were able to enjoy ourselves and not worry about how they were doing. As always, thank you so much Miss Monie and Miss Sandy!

Always feel great leaving Maddy with Monie and Sandy. She loves going there.
As always, we had a wonderful experience boarding our dog Pippin With Monie & Sandy. We can't express enough how much we appreciate the excellent care & service that they offer. Pippin always comes home well exercised, tired and happy. I love that he gets a vacation too.

Monie and Sandy B are wonderful dogsitters. I wouldn't think of leaving my Paco anywhere else! They are truly devoted to providing the best care when "mom and dad" are away.
Monie and Sandy treat Mr Magoo like their own. I always rest easy knowing they are taking care of him while I am away. I have been using them for several years now and can't imagine what I'd do without them!!!!!!!!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Monie and Sandy! Baxter has a second home out on the farm with them, and he loves it! He yelps with excitement when he goes there and then again when he comes home. Such a happy pup after a stay with them!!
I cannot express to you how grateful my wife and I are to Monie and Sandy for being available to take care of our sweet guy if we need it. We are so glad to have found them! It continues to be an ongoing process to get our shy guy used to being away from home, but they have been kind, open and lovingly patient with him as he grows and stretches his boundaries. The peace of mind that comes with knowing he is in (and will be in) such loving, knowledgeable and capable care is priceless! Thank you so much, Monie and Sandy!

Seems about time to write ANOTHER AWESOME review because Ima stays at Monie & Sandy's almost as much as she does at home, I can't write every time or I would write each week. We are so thankful for the wonderful care and attention given to our crazy Aussie on each visit. We are very blessed to have someone to care for our girl. It's like leaving her with family each time, you couldn't ask for more.

Murphy had fun as always and has been a tired pup since he got home. He needs a vacation from his vacation! hahah
Great place for Remy to vacation while we are on vacation. Highly recommend to anyone anxious about leaving their pooch! So glad we found you Thanks Monie.
What a great experience!! Monie and Sandy welcomed Roxy with open arms. They took the time to show me around and made both myself and my dog comfortable. I received photos everyday ( most of them a blur because Roxy was running and playing non stop). I was a little worried that Roxy would not want to come home with us. She was happy and exhausted when we picked her up. We can't wait for Roxy to go back again...

As always, Molly had a great time at Monie and Sandy's house. She came home happy and exhausted from playing with all her friends!
Love, Love, Love Monie and Sandy!! Baxter always comes home tired from a fun time playing! Thank you for loving our baby as much as we do!
Monnie's is the only place that I feel comfortable leavng my best friend at! Monnie and Sandy are wonderful to Paco .
Monie & Sandy always take wonderful care of our pup. We are so thankful.
Our 1 year old Golden, Lucca had a blast. It sure is nice knowing she's well taken care of when we have to leave her. Monie and Sandy have been watching our dogs for 20 years and we've always been very satisfied. It's like summer camp for dogs.
As always, Monie and Sandy took incredible care of our furry children! Thank you both so much!
Monie and Sandy are always amazing - our dogs love staying with them! I would trust them with their lives!
Monie and Sandy are the best. Murphy is a "frequent flyer" at their house and he LOVES every minute. We love it too cause we know he's happy and we don't worry about him one bit because we know he's in good hands.
We are lucky to have such great host to our family dog. Thank you Monie and Sandy we are happy to have found you!
Murphy always has such a great time with his friends. Thank you Monie and Sandy!
Monie is always the greatest!
Matilda had such a lovely weekend. I am so happy that I found you to take of my puppy while I am away. We look forward to many more visits and stays with you. Thank you so much for being so amazing and loving.
Bailey had a great time with Sandy and Monie, as always!! Thank you so much for taking such great care of our girl! We can't wait to see you again soon! Hal, Diane and Bailey
Thanks again Monie and Sandy, Your the best I always know Oliver is in caring & loving hands. Your both a blessing
Thank you for making it so easy to extend the time we needed to leave Maddy. I have such peace of mind when I know she's in your capable hands. Love getting updated texts and pictures as always.
Thanks Monie and Sandy for such a great place for our Maddy.
Out pup Pippin gets a wonderful vacation every time we take him to Monie & Sandy. They take wonderful care of him and he comes home well excercised & happy. We couldn't ask for more & will continue to use their services.
Another successful stay for Lieben! She loves Monie and Sandy!
SERIOUSLY! Cannot say enough good things about Monie and Sandy. As usual, Liebs was well taken care of and would have been happy to stay longer!
We love knowing that Baxter is being well cared for by Monie and Sandy! Just picked him up this morning from a long weekend away and he is sound asleep on the couch from exhaustion! So happy that he has friends to play with at Monie and Sandy's! Thanks for loving him the way we do!

Monie has made our dog family. And Sandy treated Mick to a great grooming.
My 2 dogs love staying at Monie's place because it is like a home away from home. As soon as we turn the corner to enter her property, they start to get excited. She treats them like one of her own. I highly recommend Monie for your pets vacation.
We've trusted our dog to Monie several times and we continue to be extremely pleased with the experience. Our dog, Charley Blue, loves to hop out of the car to greet Monie and happily goes inside with her. His demeanor seems to say, "I'm fine! I love coming to camp. Don't worry, I'll be just fine."

We enjoy the photos that Monie emails to us.

I recommend Monie heartily!

What happens when your air conditioning suddenly quits on a Sunday morning in August in Central Florida? If you have dogs and are lucky enough to have Monie to take care of them on such short notice, things feel a lot cooler! Addi and Kobi had a good visit while the human family packed off to a hotel. Thank you for accommodating them in this emergency situation. Knowing they were at their "second home" made the situation much less stressful for us.

We know when we go out of town we can trust Monie with our dog and not have to worry. We are lucky to have her and our dog loves going there. She sent us picture updates durning our dogs stay which brightened our days. Monie is great and we recommend her for your pet!
Read More...
Murphy had such a great time as always with Monie and he got all clean and spiffy by Sandy. Happy happy happy!
Miss Monie took excellent care of our pups, as usual! Thank you Monie!
Mick loves Monie, so visiting is like being at home with extra companion dogs. We have recommended Monie to neighbors and would be greatly disappointed if Mick could not stay with her.
Baxter was with Monie for 2 weeks and had a great experience! He is worn out today from all the fun he had the past 2 weeks. Love the picture updates Monie sends and she is great about replying to our messages when we check in on him! Would recommend Monie to anyone that needs someone to love their dog when the humans are away!

My chocolate lab, Brodie, always has a blast when he stays with Monie. She takes very good care of him, has a lot of one on one time, and respects the needs/wishes/habits of each dog as described by their owners. Monie is flexible with my schedule in terms of pick up/drop off times, which is great.

If your dog is your best friend and you want to leave them with someone who will take good care, consider Monie!

I never worry when Maddy is with Monie. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our girl!!
Love Monie ! Thanks for the picture of Oliver while he was staying with you. Puts our mind at ease knowing he's being taken care of like a member of the family.
Molly's stay with Monie and Sandy and her fellow four legged guests was wonderful as always. She came home happy and exhausted!
I have never taken our dog out of the house when we have gone on a trip; always had a house and dog sitter come in. When I first met Monie I knew at that moment he would be very well taken care of. I will be bringing Oliver back for another stay.
Monie is Wonderful !!!!!!!!
Thank You

Liebs was brilliantly exhausted when I picked her up from Monie and Sandy. I went on a quick weekend away with the family and I am blessed to have people I can trust will treat her like family! :-)
Seriously taking my pup here! She is always exhausted and has a TON of fun. I keep referring them to all of my friends!
This was the longest time we left our pup with Monie and he had a great time! Whenever we were missing him a picture would appear from Monie and we were reassured he was fine. Thanks for taking such great care of Baxter!
.....I'm pretty sure my pup would have never come home! She had SO much fun and was completely exhausted when I picked her up on her last day! Hard to do since she is a Weimaraner! Her stay was filled with love and attention and I can tell anyone reading this you will NOT be disappointed! Definitely recommend them!

Our golden retriever loves going to Monie's Camp Keepersplace. It is so reassuring to know "our girl" is having fun, receiving tender loving care, and plenty of exercise when we are out of town. I know she loves it there as she can hardly wait to get out of the car when we drop her off and when we pick her up will be very quiet for about 24 hours!! Thank you Monie!

Bailey always has a great time at camp! She loves to run and this is a great place for her to do it. Monies takes excellent care of her every time she's there.
We appreciate the love and great care Bailey gets when she's there. We're able to leave her and never worry for a minute about whether she's ok or not.
My favorite part is that she never has to go into a crate or cage.
We'll take Bailey there from now on. God bless you, Monie, for your love and care for Bailey.

Another wonderful experience! My dogs always have a great time at Monie's and we always look forward to the daily pictures and text updates, and it makes the time that they're away from us seem shorter. I wouldn't take them anyplace else!
It is such a relief to find as place for Baxter to go and have fun when his people family get to go do the same! We feel confident that he is safe and well cared for, especially with Monies background. She always greets us with a smile and Baxter is excited to see her! Thanks Monie for giving us a peace of mind when we travel that Baxter is getting the attention he deserves!

What a great experience with Monie. We felt such peace knowing Ima was with a safe, responsible, knowledgeable and dog loving person. This was our first time leaving her like this and I couldn't believe how immediately comfortable it was to hand some the lead and know it was an excellent decision. Ima will be.back!

As always, Molly's experience with Monie was great. She came home happy and tired. I also appreciate the time Monie took to let my two young grandsons see the baby chicks and feed apples to the horses, they loved their little adventure!
As per usual Monie took excellent care of our furry children! It's such a blessing to not have to worry about them! We love her and so do our pups! Thank you Monie!!!
Maci had a great visit for the 7 days I boarded her with Monie. She enjoyed the freedom of the country setting and the exposure to the animals she was in contact with...chickens, horses and one of the three dogs she especially bonded with...she wasn't in a hurry to leave when I picked her up!!

As always, Jack had a wonderful time with Monie and friends:) He was spoiled and Monie updated us with pictures throughout the week. We feel so comfortable leaving our 4 legged baby with her!
We are so lucky to have found Monie! She's the best and our dog, Murphy, LOVES to go stay with her and her doggie friends. I love that he gets to play the whole time he's there and has tons of fun. I don't feel bad to have to leave him and I can enjoy my vacations and times away because I don't worry about him at all. I know he's in great hands. And Monie texts me pictures to show what a great time he's having and he really looks like he's smiling which makes me smile too. If you need a trusted person to watch your fur-baby... Monie is perfect. And don't forget Sandy -- she's a GREAT groomer. We use her even when Murphy doesn't stay! I've sent a few friends over to Monie and they are happy too.

My chocolate lab, Brodie, loves,staying with Monie! It is clear that she really loves dogs. I like that she lives on a large lot with space for the dogs to run and play, that she swims with them in the pool, and that she offers them the option to sleep at night the same way they sleep at home (on the bed, in a crate, or neither).
Read More...
As always - Molly had a great time and came home tuckered out from all her fun!
As always, Monie's place is amazing! We all LOVE her!
Keepers place is amazing!!

After a couple of visits before Willow's stay, I realized that this would be like a fun, camp vacation with loads of space for her to run, play and socialize. It was also clear to me that she would be in excellent hands and that Monie works hard to keep the furbabies comfortable, safe and protected.

During her stay Willow required unexpected, extra nurturing and care (this was due to a preexisting, recurrent issue and had nothing to do with her being boarded) and Monie rose to the challenge. I truly appreciated her prompt communication and the extra TLC that she gave to my puppy. I would not hesitate to leave my dog in her care again. I highly recommend Keepersplace for your boarding needs.

Another great stay with Monie! I'm always comfortable leaving my dogs with her and Sandy - they are well taken care of, get lots of playtime, and make new friends. I love getting updates and pictures. So happy that we've found such a wonderful place!

Monie was the perfect host for Elvis and me. I was reassured and updated daily with pictures of Elvis's stay. This put my mind at ease and allowed a relaxing and restorative vacay for me as well. Monie was very professional and personable, Elvis and I will definitely be back!!

Our girl, Bailey, has a great time out there everytime she goes out to Camp Keepers Place. Thank you, Monie, for taking such good care of Bailey.
I felt so comfortable leaving our dog with Monie. She seems to be "a natural" with dogs, and took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all my questions. She has plenty of space for him to run, explore, and play. I think our dog had a better vacation than we did!
Read More...
Molly had a great time and came home looking healthy and happy!
Monies took great care of my two goldendoodles while we were away. She really knows a lot about dogs and I never worried for a minute while on vacation. I would definitely use her again!
Monie is wonderfully attentive and willing to work with the dogs she cares for. I greatly appreciate her care with our overgrown puppy.
From our first communication and through the entire process Monie was awesome.
We wanted to board our two boxers somewhere they could be active and have fun for the 10 days we were out of town.
Monie has a great property with plenty of room for our dogs to run and play. She kept us updated with pictures and messages the entire time.
It was obvious right from the start that she really cares about the animals and that was a important to us.
We have definitely found our dogs' new home away from home!

Barney had more exercise in one day with Monie and friends than he gets in a week. Best dog care ever.
Thank you for coming to our rescue when John had to go out of town suddenly (and I already was!). I knew the dogs would be well looked after---and they were!---no matter how hurriedly I dropped them off.
YES MONIE B WAS GREAT MY DOG HAD A GREAT TIME . I WOULD RECOMMEND MONIES PLACE ANY TIME LOTS OF RUNNING ROOM AND PLAY FRIENDS THANK YOU MONIE B
This was the longest I've ever left any of my dogs EVER! Thank goodness they were with Monie and Sandy and I didn't have to worry about them. I'm sure I missed them more than they missed me.

My dogs are on a home cooked diet consisting of chopped meat and vegetables. I brought over enough for the 1st week I was gone and Monie and Sandy shopped and made the food for the next two weeks. This goes above and beyond what I would expect from a DogVacay host and it was greatly appreciated.

As always I appreciated the updates and pictures Monie sent. And Sandy did a wonderful job of bathing, grooming and fluffing the dogs so they looked spectacular when we picked them up.

I've left my dogs here numerous times and will continue to do so. I'm so relieved and happy to have a safe, loving place for them to stay when I travel.

GREATEST PLACE TO TAKE YOUR DOG!!!! We took our Shorthaired Pointer, Barney, to a Greet and Meet, and then a day stay a few days later. I think Barney thought he was in Dog Heaven. Fenced acres to run free and explore. Monie is a wonderful dog person and has vast experience with all breeds of dogs. You can immediately see your dog will get all the exercise needed and more and is in loving care. Best ever we have seen for dog care. Monie will be our ONLY dog care giver....

We LOVE Monie B. and Sandy :-)
Monie was a wonderful host to my dog Titus. She keeps you updated on their stay! He had a great time and it was great knowing he was having just as much fun on his vacation as I was missing him! Highly reccomended!
We are new to the Orlando area and this was our first time leaving our golden retriever with Monie. It was a wonderful experience for us and Bella. Monie texted us daily photos and it was reassuring to see the fun she was having and the excellent care Bella was receiving. Monie provides large, safe areas for the dogs to run and play. I knew Bella was in good and loving hands and would recommend Monie very highly! When we have future travel plans, we will very definitely be asking Monie to care for our golden. We could travel and not be at all concerned about her care or safety!!

We are new to DogVacay and Monie, and I am very satisfied with our two bookings so far! She is flexible regarding drop-off and pick-up times, which is a huge help since sometimes the unexpected happens. Monie is also very good at communicating which is reassuring to me - seeing a photo of our dog during his stay, reconfirming pick-up times, etc. And she clearly loves what she does!
Read More...
Monie is absolutely wonderful! There's no place that we'd rather leave our dogs than with her...we enjoy receiving the daily pictures and texts, which helps us with some of the 'guilt' of leaving them behind when we go on vacation! We are very comfortable leaving our dogs with Monie and would highly recommend her!

From arranging a meet and greet to dropping off my puppy and picking her up from her stay, Monie was amazing! She showed me around her property and explained how everything would be during my puppy's stay in detail. I could immediately sense her love for dogs from the moment mine jumped out of my car. She took to Riley immediately and vice versa. Of course I was a little nervous leaving Riley because she would be around new people and dogs in a new environment, but Monie put all my fears at ease. From a couple hours after she was dropped off thorughout my entire vacation Monie sent me pictures and updates on my Riley. It really helped me to relax knowing my puppy was having a blast as well. When I picked up my dog I could tell how comfortable she had become over the week. She didn't want to leave! The best part is that she has been sleeping non stop for the past day because she was so worn out from all the activity she had! I will definitely be leaving Riley with Monie again when I'm away!
Read More...
This was my first experience with DogVacay and I was totally pleased. Firstly, the host profiles helped me to narrow my selection to one that I thought best suited my lab. Secondly, the booking process was easy. And best of all, Monie was a great find - she is definitely a "dog person", is good about communicating, and her home and property offer a nice setting for my lab to get exercise.
Read More...
I always feel comfortable when I leave my dog with Monie. I know he will be well taken care of and have a great time playing with the other dogs there. Getting updates and pictures during his stay is great. I feel lucky to have found such a great place for him while I'm away.

Toby loves going on vacation. I can tell by his behavior that he is well taken care of. Normally he will give me the sad eyes and not want me to leave, but at Monie's he is happy and excited to be there and I can tell he feels at home.
Thank you for taking such good care of Addi and her new brother, Kobi. They were well taken care of-even Kobi's ear and eye infections were administered to. I always appreciate your willingness to do extra things for my dogs. And Sandy had Kobi looking and smelling great after his bath. Thanks again!

Monie is super friendly and amazing with dogs! Our Ezreal was a little skittish around other dogs and she made him feel right at home and at ease and he had a great time socializing with everyone! We will definitely want to book with her again when we need to go out of town!
Read More...
Monie is wonderful!! Our Hugo had the greatest time and was happy, healthy, and wonderfully worn out from all the playing when we picked him up! The picture updates were also wonderful and kept our minds at ease. We highly recommend Monie for your dog's Vacay!

Monie is amazing! She has taken such great care of my boy. Her home is truly a vacation home and I can tell that Toby loves being there. I feel comfort when I go out of town knowing that she is taking the best possible care of him.
This was our first time using her services and I must say it exceeded our expectations. We are new to the area and do not have know a lot of people, so to have someone we know we can trust and our puppy likes is very comforting. Our puppy had such a great time with Moni and we think grew up a little too & learned a lot with her on his stay because he is even more well behaved. I am sure he had fun too because it took two days for him to get his energy back and tiring out our puppy is not easy!!!! Thank you soooo much Moni for taking care of our little guy and we look forward to using your services again in the future!
Read More...
Monie is kind, personable, and over all wonderful. Our rambunctious pup, Pippin, spent an activity filled week with her. He returned home happy and obviously well cared for. We will most certainly be using Monie's service again.
PAWESOME! Camelot just loves to be able to roam around free - enjoys to cool off at her pool. He can't wait to go back! absolutely great!
Mick was a relatively new addition to our household, so I talked to multiple people who are DogVacay hosts. Monie immediately made me feel comfortable and showed her willingness to work with Mick during his stay with her. Periodically, she sent me pictures and reassurances that Mick was doing well with both her dogs and her visitors. We do not travel often, but when we do, we will be asking Monie to care for Mick again.

Set up a meet and greet with Monie at Keeper's Place and you will walk away assured that your dog will have an invigorating and playful experience. Darla came home happy, ready to play and nap, and smelling great (thanks to Sandy's grooming!) - but I'd definitely recommend a bath for your pup; a good time doesn't mean a clean time, right? I know that when I leave Darla with Monie, she's in the best of hands.

Monie's is the best place we've ever found to leave our dog Maddy. I can't even begin to thank her for taking care of Maddy while we were on vacation. Highly recommended!!
Have you ever sent your children away to camp. They come home and tell you what a great time they had and all the friends they made.

Some how sending Daisy (our yellow lab) to be with Monie she comes home and tells us how much fun she had. She tells us about the games she played, the friends she made, how awesome the councilors were and that she can't wait to go back!

She is so happy and we just LOVE Monie!!!

Thank you for taking care of our little girl!

So nice not having to worry about our pups and they LOVE Miss Monie!
Amazing! Our dogs LOVE going to Miss Monie's!!!
Murphy LOVED his time with Monie. She certainly kept him busy with lots of playing and love. He had a great time with some of his doggy friends too. Monie is very welcoming, personable, and helpful. She makes sure to do things at her home similar to your home so there's not too much change to their normal routine. She sent me pictures and text messaged me to let me know how Murphy was doing -- a white dog who LOVES mud is quite entertaining for all. We were gone 10 days -- we knew he was in good hands, so we enjoyed our vacation even more. We will definitely use Monie again in the future. I've already recommended her to all my friends.

My dog had a blast! Thank you Monie for taking excellent care of Preston. We were updated with photos and text messages during his stay. we sure did appreciate that.
Monie is so great with Baku and I can tell she really loves taking care of dogs. I am really happy I found her. Baku gets tones of exercise and swims all day long. Monie always updates us on Baku by sending picture messages and texts. It's a great home away from home for Baku.

Luna had a fun-filled week of doggy summer camp with Ms. Monie. She ran, swam, played, romped, and rolled to her heart's content. When we picked her up, she was so happy, healthy and clean! Love it!
Monie has the PERFECT set up and experience for this! She is absolutely amazing and my dogs LOVED being there! They've found their second home!
Daisy could not have had a better vacation! Being on such a great property where a lab can just play was perfect. Because dogs are so carefully selected Daisy made new friends.

Most of all she (we) made a new friend in Monie! She sent fun and funny pictures and kept us updated. Her care and love for the dogs and what she does makes the difference.

We are planning our next trip and there is no place she would rather stay!

Thank You!

Monie is wonderful with our 2 boxers. They love going to visit!! I would highly recommend her!
Colby & Cheddar had a great time at Camp Keepersplace. They both came home completely exhausted from playing outside. Monie knows a lot about dogs and I felt very comfortable leaving my two doodles with her.
This is my third time having Monie watch my Golden Retriever. I feel very comfortable leaving Rusty with Monie, knowing he is well cared for and gets plenty of exercise. I also had Rusty groomed while he was there, and Sandy did a great job. Thanks!
This was a fabulous experience for our furry family member. Monie B is wonderful and very knowledgeable. We believe our dog had a fantastic vacation of her own at Monie's property. Thank you!
Thank you for, again, taking such good care of our little girl. We appreciated the texts (with great pics!) you sent during the days we were gone. I know Addi is always in good hands when she is with you.
So far so good. Elvis looks very happy with monie and is staying a few more weeks. Great place
Axel had a fabulous time with Monie. The whole process was so comfortable and seemed like a home away from home for Axel. We are excited to do it again!
Absolutely the best experience ever for our dogs. We never leave without them because we don't want to kennel our dogs. We had a bad in home pet sitting experience many years ago.

We felt comfortable from the very first meet and greet! Our dogs were so happy! We are sure they can't wait to go back!

Monie truly understands both dogs and their owners. No doubt whatsoever! And they were beautifully groomed when we picked them up. Such a great experience allowed us to truly enjoy our time away.

We have never felt more comfortable with anyone with our dogs. Our dogs really miss her! They can't wait for us to go away agan!

We were nervous to leave our goldendoodle puppy for the first time, but Monie really treats every dog like they are hers. She follows schedules and keeps rules just like in your home. Jack had a great stay and we will definitely call her again.
Addi had another great stay. And thanks for providing the bath. Addi smelled a whole lot better coming home than she did when I dropped her off!
When my pups can't go with us, I have peace of mind when they are with Monie.
Addi and our foster dog, Panda, had a great visit. They seemed happy and I know they were well cared for. I loved the Valentine's day bandanas they were wearing when I picked them up. Addi will be returning for sure and I shared Camp Keepersplace with Panda's new family.

This is the third time we have boarded Charlie (our standard poodle) with Monie, and it was another five-star experience. Monie is a loving, kind-hearted woman who takes great care of Charlie. He romps on her fenced ranch, plays with her dog, and gets lots of loving attention. We are very pleased!!

Our dogs had wonderful 5 night stay with Monie. We usually leave our dogs with family but in this case everyone was traveling. I came across DogVacay.com and read lots of reviews, and decided to contact Monie. She got back to me right away and suggested a meet and greet for our dogs with hers. Needless to say, when we left that meeting we knew without a doubt that we wanted to leave Cooper and Zoe with her while we were gone, and that not only would they be well taken care of, they would have a great time while they were there. We left on our trip without any of the feelings of remorse we would have had if we had to board them in a kennel. The pictures we received while we were gone showed us we were right..in fact, we don't think they missed us at all!! Monie even set up a lamp for Zoe as we explained that she did not like to sleep in the dark! We will definitely contact Monie in the future as the need arises and highly recommend her home when your pets need a vacation of their own!

I just picked up my standard poodle today after an 18 night stay with Monie. She had taken excellent care of him. She communicated frequently about his stay and handled all our special requests. Charley found a doggy pal to play with and loads of ways to expend his energy. We will definitely reserve boarding for our pet with Monie for our next vacation.

Couldn't be better... unless Monie lived next door to us. But if she did, Sully would never want to stay with us.
Wonderful! I will use Monie again and happily recommend her to others.
Monie watched my Golden Retriever, Rusty, for 12 days while I was away. She sent me email updates of how he was doing and included pics of the dogs swimming and having a great time. My vet has been telling me for a year that Rusty needs to lose weight and exercise more; well, this was just what he needed. When I picked up Rusty, I noticed he had lost weight from all of the swimming and playing with the other dogs. I'm very pleased with the time and effort Monie put towards taking care of my dog. I will definitely take Rusty over to Monie's for future DogVacay's. Definitely recommend!

This was my first time using DogVacay. Monie was so patient with me and really made me comfortable in leaving my little Ginger with her. Ginger had a wonderful time during her stay. I will definitely ask Monie to care for my dog again when I go out of town.

Sully was clean, well-fed, well-exercised and happy when we picked him up. Monie sent pics and reports as we requested. A perfect host. Will use her again for sure.
