Great as always!
Our dog is so happy when she sees them!
Great vacay experience! Siena had a blast :-)
Donald and Susanne are the very best dog watchers I could have ever dreamed up! In addition to being available pretty last minute, they kept my dog active and happy all weekend and even texted me photo highlights throughout the weekend. This was my first time using the site and they put me instantly at ease. Can't recommend someone more!
Great first dog vacay experience! It was only a short visit for our pup but will definitely like to book a longer stay next time! Donald & Susanne were very flexible with our schedule and very responsive!
Donald and Susan could not have been more lovely; they took such wonderful care of our big dog who can be a bit shy. She happily ignored us and settled right in as soon as we walked in their door. Donald sent pictures from daily hikes which put us right at ease. They were super accommodating with our late flight pickup. Wonderful people- thank you both!
Since signing up with Dogvacy I haven't used anyone but Donald and Susanne. They're fantastic and I'm relieved I found them.

They take exceptional care of my dog Murphy and I don't worry about him while I'm out of town because I know he's in good hands.

Donald and Susanne are very communicative and send daily updates with photos. They're also quick to respond if you reach out to them.

I can't say enough nice things. I highly recommend them.
Great hosts
My dog loves them
So happy to have found them!
Great hosts!
Thank you!
I'm always a little nervous leaving my dog with someone new but Donald and Suzanne really put my mind at ease. They sent photos and updates throughout the weekend, my dog Piper couldn't have looked happier!
Not only that, they were available to watch her at the very last minute. I highly recommend Donald and Suzanne and will definitely be using them again!
Donald and Susanne took a very last minute reservation to watch my little old pug over the weekend. They could not have been sweeter or more accommodating. My pug had a great time sunbathing in their backyard. They even offered to take my pug for a hike up to griffith but sadly my old pug wouldn't be able to make it up especially with the heat. I would highly recommend leaving your pup with this wonderful couple. I plan to use them the next time I go out of town.
Donald & Susanne were totally awesome with my boston/pug mix Georgie, who stayed with them an entire week while I was on vacation. I am super nervous about anyone taking care of my dog (I am a freak!) but Donald and Susanne were so great with him. Not only did they make sure to be extra careful that Georgie did not escape (his mission in life is to escape and eat), they gave him twice daily medicine with no problem at all. They also sent me funny video updates via text, which I loved. They are very chill and very nice. As a plus, they have an awesome pad, including a backyard for the dogs to lounge in. Highly recommended. And again, I repeat, I am pretty nervous/uptight about boarding my dog.
Donald and Susanne took great care of my dog Rumble. I had to leave town on very short notice and Donald replied quickly and was happy to accommodate my schedule. They sent me pictures of their daily hikes and hang outs around the house which was so nice to see. They are very warm and friendly, a pleasure to communicate with, and really love dogs! Rumble is waiting for me to leave town again so he can stay with Donald and Susanne. Thanks so much again!
Donald and Susanne were great pet sitters. They hiked with him and their dogs.He came home happy and tired (in a good way!) I will definitely use them again>
Great experience. I'd stay with them myself.
Donald and Susanne are very caring, friendly and responsible hosts, and my nervous dogs felt instantly comfortable with them, which was a huge relief. They have a cute house with a sunny backyard area which dogs have easy access to. They live in a very nice, quiet neighborhood. They take your pups for daily walks in Griffith Park, send photos daily, and both my dogs got along very well with their sweet pup, Doug. A much more calm, intimate environment then Wagville. They were very flexible and accommodating with drop off/pick up times. I feel very comfortable giving them a enthusiastic recommendation!
This is the third time I've had Donald and Susanne watch my dog Murphy and they are the BEST hosts! I feel so relaxed when he's at their house, which is such a big relief. I will always use them whenever they're available. They take amazing care of Murphy and I love not worrying about him while I'm away.
They were great!
This is the second time I've had Donald & Susanne watch my dog Murphy and they're amazing. They send updates with pictures and they're quick to respond to you. I don't worry about anything while he's with them. They're such a blessing!
This was my first Dog vacation experience and all was awesome and super easy to coordinate!! Donald and Susanne took care of my boy, sent updates and pics.... Wasn't worried in the least!! Thanks again and thanks from Nikko ;)
Once again (third time) Donald & Sussane were amazing! They make the process so easy and I was able to relax on vacation while they sent me photos of my pup. Thanks again Donald & Sussane!
Donald and Susanne are wonderful. My lab is very happy in their home and very well cared for. They are an absolute pleasure to work with and I can enjoy my travels knowing my beloved lab is very well cared for. I would recommend them without hesitation.
This was the second time I left Steel with Donald and Sussane. This time it was for 12 days! They are really awesome and sent me pictures of Steel again. Steel tends to runaway and they do a great job of preventing that! Thank you!!!
Donald and Susanne were amazing hosts and I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome! I've never used a pet sitter before so I was nervous about leaving Murphy with someone he didn't know, but it was such a positive experience.

I'm relieved to have found Donald and Susanne. They sent me photos of Murphy every day and gave me updates as often as I wanted. They're were great at communicating and making me feel at ease about the situation while I was out of town.

They were so sweet and took good care of my dog. I will absolutely use them again.
Second time back for the gang - and the hosts took wonderful care of them! Would absolutely recommend them again, and in fact, will book with them for future out of town excursions.
This was our first time using Dog vacay and we were nervous about it at first because my dog tends to run away but Donald & Sussane were awesome! They took great care of Steel and took him on regular walks.They sent me photos of Steel everyday! They took Steel over Thanksgiving and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
I can't say enough good things about Donald & Susanne! My dog has stayed with them a couple times now and she always has a great time. Donald & Susanne send me daily updates which is a great peace of mind when i'm out of town and I also really enjoy seeing the photos of my dog hiking with them in Griffith Park or having fun with their resident dog, Doug. They were also very accommodating when I needed to make a reservation with them on short notice. I would recommend Donald & Susanne to anyone!
Donald & Susanne were such awesome hosts! They took great care my rambunctious puppy Charlie over the weekend! They even went on multiple hikes and we received daily pictures and updates. Charlie had lotsa fun and was exhausted when we brought him home! That said, a tired dog is a happy dog!
Lots of love and belly rubs for Topanga during her stay! Thanks for taking care of our little girl :)
This was Topanga's first stay with Donald & Susanne and it was great! They sent pictures of her on walks and getting belly rubs, both of which she loves! We've already made another reservation :)
Donald and Susanne were great! They were very accommodating for our "orthopedically challenged" dog, taking him for shorter walks than they would normally take their own dog, and they were comfortable with giving Otis his pills at mealtime. Their house is casual and dog friendly. When we picked Otis and brought him home, he was very tiered - always a good sign!
Great hosts for our dogs. We only used them for an evening we were at a concert and were worried about fireworks scaring our Schnauzer. They were very accomodating and flexible with pickup/dropoff, and sent us a picture of the pups from a big walk they went on. Really wonderful people.
I contacted Donald and Susanne with a last minute request, and they graciously fit us into their schedule! I was able to bring my beasts, 2 pits, for a meet & greet after getting a very quick response thru Dogvacay, and they took them in that day. I was a little nervous about leaving my crew with unfamiliar hosts, but they were very accommodating, easy, kind, and mellow, that I knew they would be well taken care of.

One of my dogs is very high energy, stressed and anxious at times, but they were able to care for her without any issues. Their house, with a secure yard and lots of space, is perfect for hosting dogs. I received updates, including a pic of a happy pack hiking Griffith Park, and knew I had made the right choice in selecting Donald and Susanne to care for my beasts! I will definitely book with them again!
