About Duane and Tammy

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Greetings dog lovers. My wife, Tammy and I share our home with our 3 year old rescued Shepherd mix dog, Grace. Grace gets along well with other dogs and Tammy stays at home, so they will be there to take care of and play with your dog.

We like to go on long walks for exercise so we can offer plenty of walks, play time, and lots of attention. In addition we have a large open house, Florida room, deck, and fenced in backyard. A caring dog friendly home away from home.

Our dog, like so many others we have cared for, is a rescue dog and we believe in giving back to help the care of dogs in need. $5 from every 5 night stay will be donated to Last Chance Rescue, Howell, MI. In addition, we support iheartdogs.com in their effort to provide meals to sheltered dogs.

We are happy to do meet and greets to answer any questions you may have. Proof of rabies shot is required. We recognize how important it is to you, your dog, and to us to feel comfortable and secure knowing you've chosen a safe, clean, fun, and interactive environment.

We look forward to getting to know you and your family pet. We will treat your dog like part of our family.

My 10 year old sweet submissive dog just had her first experience staying in a home with other dogs. Not a situation that my dog can navigate easily. Tammy was exceptionally attentive, caring, and loving with her, making it as positive an experience as possible. In a home obviously well kept, Tammy has great instincts about dogs. She's very organized and experienced taking care of a range of dogs, making things go smoothly for owners and guests. Duane was walking all the dogs when I arrived so I didn't meet him. I have a reservation to board my dog again over Christmas and feel very confident that it will be another positive experience for both me and my dog. She's in great hands!

The next time I travel, I will take my puppy back to their loving home.
This was our first day care stay and it went very well. Tammy and Duane were there to help us out on a last minute need. Thank you!
I am very pleased with the care that Duane and Tammy provide to my huskies. She texts me and sends me pictures everyday. My dogs had fun during their stay and they played with their dog Grace. I will definitely board my dogs with them again. They are very pleasant.

Very pleased with the service and care Tammy and Duane provided. I plan to use them again in the future.
We found Tammy to be a very attentive, caring pet sitter. She sent us plenty of updates, including texts and photos. She always responded quickly to my questions. We will definitely be using her again in the future.
They did an exceptional job!!!! We were very pleased with the care they gave Nebos. We enjoyed the pics they sent to our phone and they treated Nebos like he was their own. Great Job and we will recommend them to our friends!!!
My dog Stella came in healthy, happy and with two good eyes. She left with bruises, stitches and missing her left eye. The owners dog Cassie did this to her. Just pray it doesn't happen to anyone else's fur baby. Should rate 0
I cannot commend, nor thank, Duane and Tammy, enough!!! I think they treated my precious Nina even better than we could and we spoil her rotten. Plus, they kept me abreast of her "vacay" with lots of really awesome "play-by-play" shots. The peace of mind they provided me was priceless.

Nina, a spunky and bossy, nine year old, chocolate MinPin was diagnosed with PRA nearly two years ago and is now completely blind. Because of this, I can no longer do traditional boarding. It's too traumatic being blind and not knowing where all those barking dogs are. Therefore, it has been a challenge to travel.

I was nervous that Nina's special needs and spoiled nature would overwhelm most people, but Duane and Tammy were up for the challenge. Duane and Tammy are so kind, patient, calm and collected...perfect characteristics to make Nina (and myself) relax and enjoy because she feels safe and secure! Nina is a spoiled little cuddler who always sleeps with me. When I picked Nina up from her stay, Tammy mentioned Nina burrowing between her and Duane at bedtime. It touched my heart that Duane and Tammy shared their bed with Nina each night.

Duane and Tammy, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

They took great care of our dog during his day care stay. Will definitely use them again!
Tammy and Duane were great! Their dog Grace is a sweetheart and our little guy came home happy and sleepy. We will definitely be back.
Duane and Tammy were great! My dog, Maluskha, can be sensitive and quirky. I felt comfortable leaving her with Tammy and Duane and their sweet dog, Grace, who is a lot like my dog:) They are aware of dogs different personalities, and have plans in place if there are multiple dogs in the house that may not get along. I appreciated the update messages and pics. I would recommend them and plan to use them again. Thanks for taking good care of Miss Malushka!:)

Duane and Tammy were super hosts to Ruby! They kept us updated with pictures and stories of her playing with the other dogs, and Ruby was happy and exhausted when she got home! Thanks again for taking care of our girl!
Tammy was amazing and having our puppy around other dogs was great for his training. Blue stayed the weekend with Tammy and it was clear he was well cared for and spoiled!
Duane and Tammy are the sweetest couple and their dog Grace is so precious and friendly. Truly you are in good hands if you want your dog to be treated like family.
Tammy and Duane were great. Our dog Simba came back happy and tired. Will surely use again.
We left our very LARGE retriever Jake with Duane and Tammy for a week, his first stay away from us. I was extremely nervous, but Tammy was so kind and so good with Jake. She was nice enough to text updates and pictures, and Jake seemed to be right at home. While he was excited to see us when we returned, I think he missed his new friends the next few days!

I would not hesitate to leave Jake with Tammy and Duane again.

Duane and Tammy are a very sweet and gentle couple. My Yorkie responded so well with them in such a short time which is very unusual for my dog. Even their dog Grace was so easily acceptable....and that's a very big deal. My husband and I are going on a weeks vacation soon and we will definitely be booking with them.

Great people, great house dog, and a very dog friendly setup. Their house is well prepared for dogs, with dedicated rooms and a fenced in yard that is clutter free. Duane and Tammy are very responsive both to the dogs needs and to any communication via the app or phone. My dog returned a happy and exhausted camper!

We were very happy with the entire experience of leaving our dog Kirby with Duane and Tammy. Tammy was a great communicator both before and during Kirby's stay. We will definitely use Duane and Tammy again!
Just picked up a calm happy dog. Thank you for the excellent care of our older dog, Finni.
Great Job! Very Kind. Very Flexible.
Cooper and Tanner had a great time with Tammy and Duane. In fact, Tanner was so tired from all the running around and playing with other dogs that he came home and slept the rest of the day. I know they were loved on and much happier running around Tammy and Duane's fenced-in backyard with other dogs than they would have been at a kennel. I also appreciate the fact that Duane kept us updated on how they were doing with pictures texted to our cell phones.

My dogs felt very comfortable at Duane and Tammy's place. They were extremely flexible in the drop-off and pick-up times which we really appreciated. They seemed to get my dogs' different personalities almost immediately which made the boarding experience very reassuring.

Tammy and Duane , were awesome! This was our rescue labs' first time away from us. We were very concerned about her because she has severe separation anxiety! They did everything to make her comfortable and happy and that made us happy too ! Tammy sent update pictures throughout the week and that showed us how great she was doing. We could relax and enjoy our vacation . I will definitely want to book her with them again !

Tammy was fantastic! She took great care of my dog for two nights as I was traveling through the state of Michigan back to my home in California . She sent me updated text and pictures/video. I would absolutely recommend her and use her again in the future !

Clean, orderly house, and Tammy is kind and compassionate. We felt very comfortable leaving Snappy and will use them again.
No problems took very good care of my Max.
Our Aussie Labradoodle stayed with Duane and Tammy for 11 days while we traveled and our dog had a wonderful experience.
Multiple daily walks around the neighborhood; plenty of playtime with their own dog, Gracie, with whom she shared the ball with and ran around the yard. Beautiful fenced in back yard which is an added bonus since our dog loves to run and be energetic. Also, during our dogs stay, other pets were hosted and all got along very well! Highly recommend Duane and Tammy as hosts if you are in the need. We will be sure to use them again in the future!!

Tammy & Duane were awesome. We received periodic pics and Cooper was spoiled in a good way and seemed very content. This is so much better than any kennel. I definitely recommend them.
This was the first time we had ever used DogVacay and are quite pleased with the results. Tammy and Duane took very good care of our dog, Dakota, while we were away - We enjoyed the updates and photos of Dakota they sent via text messages. We felt at peace while we were on vacation knowing that our precious Dakota was in good hands. We highly recommend Tammy and Duane and definitely will use them again. Thank you so much !!!
