Azizah was a great host for our hound mix Maisie! She was flexible with pick-up and drop-off and kept us updated while we were away. We would definitely let Maisie stay with Azizah again!
We're now a three-time repeater and we hope she is always available because she's such a good, responsible dog sitter!
We're going to continue booking with Azizah because she's awesome- responsive, sends texts with pictures, and our dog loves spending time with her!
Super friendly. Rufus LOVED her. Was great at sending us updates. We'll definitely be using her again.
Azizah was amazing. Pepper -- a normally high stressed dog-- was cool as a cucumber when we saw her this morning after being away for the weekend. Will be booking again-- great, fast communication and we had total confidence in Azizah!!
Azizah was awesome!!! She took such great care of our dog, Newman. I highly recommend her!
Azizah was awesome! She was very responsive from my first message to her, and very helpful seeing as this was my first DogVacay experience. She was super prompt which was very important seeing as it was my wedding day. Azizah was very calm and collected even though she walked into a room of me in my wedding dress and a lot of crazy people running around! She even stayed late as we were running late coming back from the wedding. She was great and Caesar was super happy when we got back! THANK YOU AZIZAH!

Aziza was wonderful! Calypso had a wonderful vacay, and we loved getting the updates and photos. The worst part was the traffic getting to her and that's certainly not her fault. Calypso would love another vacay with Aziza and is looking forward to seeing her again soon!

Azizah was a wonderful host to our dog Lyla--sent daily picture updates and was incredibly responsive. We returned to a very happy pup! We would definitely work with Azizah again in the future.
Azizah was very prepared and professional throughout our interactions, and it seems like my dog had a great time with her while I was gone. She was also very accommodating when I was late for pickup.
Azizah watched our dog for two weekends in a row, and Mabel couldn't wait to go back the second time! We got plenty of photo updates and Mabel was extremely content.
Azizah was great! She sent me an update and picture every day. I would definitely go back to her again.
Azizah is great ! Really all can say. Drove to her place dropped off Marvin, Azizah sent photos periodically, which was nice. Coordinating our time wasn't an issues and Marvin didn't think so either.

My dog is unaffected and that's what I wanted. We love Azizah. Have your dog stay with her.

Azizah was great as usual!
Azizah was great, as always! Eddie looks forward to staying with her again!
She was great as usual!
Azizah took good care of Caelo. I loved getting the photo updates of her stay!
My 18-lb cat Pasta stayed with Azizah for 4 weeks. When we got there, she was watching a hyper small dog that Pasta was not fond of, so he started hissing and chasing after the poor dog. Needless to say, I was worried. However, it turns out Azizah is something of a cat AND dog whisperer - by the time we came to pick him up, he barely said hello and ran to hide so we wouldn't take him away. He seemed really at home at Azizah's. She is calm, friendly, sent regular updates and genuinely seems to enjoy pet-sitting both dogs and cats - and they her. We'll be back!

Azizah was great! Very quick to respond and very helpful. Hershey and I were coming into Boston for a night. I was wanting to be a tourist. I knew Hershey would be happier with someone than in a hotel. Azizah was hosting another dog tucker and they got a long great. This was my first dogvacay and I will continue to use it when needed. Thank you for taking care of my baby!!!

We were so comfortable leaving our dog Tucker with Azizah during our wedding and honeymoon. It was our first time leaving him for such an extended period (10 days), but we felt completely at ease with Azizah taking care of him. I brought Tucker to meet with her prior to booking and she was very sweet and had another dog there that she was watching at the time. During our trip she sent daily updates with pics and was always very friendly and professional. She was also very accessible with the drop off and pick up of Tucker. For our next trip we will definitely book her again!

Azizah took excellent care of our Lhasa Apso. She sent us nightly pictures of her out for walks in the park. She kept us updated on how she was adjusting to her new environment. I would highly recommend Azizah to take care of your pet.
Azizah was a fantastic DogVacay host. She was very thorough and asked a lot of questions about my dog Eddie prior to his visit. During his visit, she sent us daily text and photo updates on Eddie's activities. These updates put us at ease while we were away and indicated to us that Eddie was having a great time while we were gone. I highly recommend Azizah to anyone looking for a host for their dog and hopefully she is available again next time Eddie needs a place to stay!

My dog Mia had another great time with Azizah. I can tell because when I dropped her off she was happy to see Azizah, and she was relaxed and happy when I picked her up.
Azizah is the best! My Dog Mia loves her!!!! :)
With many positive reviews and a meet and greet that didn't disappoint, Azizah is truly what DogVacay is meant to embody. Sure, we missed our dog Isabelle while we were out of town for a couple of days, but we knew she was in good, caring hands at all times. Azizah texted us a picture and update every day without fail and was always responsive to the random question/text on how things were going. Our dog is a companion animal who is prone to anxiety and just moved to Boston not two weeks ago... and she wasn't phased by her stay with Azizah one bit. No illnesses, no anxiety panics... nothing. We will certainly hope to utilize Azizah's customer-friendly services again should we need them in the future and highly recommend her to anyone needing a reliable dog-sitter. Thank you so much for taking such good care of our dog!

Azizah is the absolute best! My boyfriend and I were gone for a week and requested Azizah to watch him semi-last minute. She was so accomodating and welcoming to our little pup from the moment we met her. Azizah sent us photos everyday and an update on how they spent the day and what activities Huey was enjoying. Knowing our pup was in such good hands allowed us to fully enjoy our time away which is priceless for us! Thank you so much Azizah - Huey is excited to spend time with you again!

We were so happy to meet Azizah and have her care for our 'senior' dog Lucy! When she first met Lucy, she cuddled her and knew exactly how to show Lucy she was in good hands. She sent us daily (or more) photos and administered medicine to her without a problem. Lucy never appeared to miss us!
It was a great relaxing experience for us. We highly recommend Azizah!
Many thanks. We look forward to having her help us again!

Azizah was AMAZING. She offered to take Gyoza the night before I was scheduled to drop him off so she could get in some extra bonding time with him, free of charge! She sent great daily updates with pictures (including the sweetest Valentine's day note from him :)) and was incredibly flexible with his pick-ip time as I returned to an ice-encased car. I would highly recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future! Thanks, Azizah! :)

Azizah is a Godsend to me and my dog Mia. I feel 100% at peace when drop her off. Mia was a shelter dog, and although I'll never know her past, it has lead to her taking a long time to get to know & feel comfortable around people. Azizah has such a kind & gentle way about her, that it sped up the process of Mia warming up to her. I can tell that Mia is at ease around Azizah, and that she is well cared for when I come to pick her up. I am very very happy with Dog Vacay, as I don't know if I would have found such a wonderful person to care for Mia without it.

We were staying in Boston for the night for a NYE party and Azizah was wonderful and took such good care of our pup! We would recommend her to anyone :0)
Azizah was awesome with Oliver! I got picture updates daily and Oliver looked like he loved his 7 day stay there! Azizah's place is very spacious and perfect for animals. Having Azizah as a new option when I travel is going to make my life so much easier! Thanks so much!

I left Lucy with much trepidation. She was well cared for and loved by Aziza, and I have already planned for a future visit .Aziza's daily photos and messages were a great comfort, and left me feeling quite relaxed.
Great as usual!
I cannot say enough about Azizah! She took care of Chemsy as if it was her own dog. She took time to understand her personality and made sure to keep in touch with me and send me pictures daily. I was so happy to know that she was in good hands!
2nd time our dog has stayed with azizah. She is very responsible and responsive, even proactively sending us pics of our pup while we are out of town. Would definitely recommend!
Azizah was a wonderful host for our little guy. She immediately connected with him, cleverly distracting him while we snuck out so as to prevent any distress on his part. When we came back from our trip, it was clear he had become attached to her as well. We loved the daily text message and pics; Azizah made sure to let us know of his activities and how he was doing. Also, Azizah was very flexible in terms of her timing and really great about having him for two trips in a row within about a week and a half, which was really kind of her. She is very responsive, which adds both convenience and peace of mind. Plus she is so clearly a kind person who sincerely enjoys dogs - we felt really comfortable leaving him with her and will certainly do so again the next time we need a sitter!

Azizah was wonderful with my dog Toby, an English Cocker Spaniel rescue with a history of neglect. He's not good with other dogs, and Azizah was very responsive to his needs. He was so happy and healthy when we picked him up, and he settled right back into his old routine when we got home. I think he was very happy with his stay. I loved that Azizah sent pictures of him nearly every day.

I can't speak highly enough about Azizah - she is the perfect match for my shy dog, who can sometimes have a fear-aggressive reaction to new people. Azizah's calm & gentle presence put my dog at ease, and when I left for their trial run overnight, I had a very good feeling that Mia was in good hands. When I picked Mia up the next afternoon, she seemed happy & relaxed, and I could tell she was very much at home with Azizah. I feel very comfortable leaving Mia with her on my nect vacation.

Azizah was absolutely great with our pit mix, Stella.she was very flexible, responsive and also sent us pics while we were away. Would definitely recommend!
Azizah was awesome! Super accommodating on timing, and seemed to really love our pup. We were so happy to have found her.
Azizah was such an awesome host for our dog, Otto. We received a text and photo every day while we were away. I was very nervous to leave him for a week, but all of my nerves were calmed when I saw how warm and welcoming Azizah was with him. I highly recommend any pet owner to trust and be thrilled to leave their pooch with her :)

Azizah was awesome! She took great care of our dog, who is blind, needs meds & extra help navigating. Azizah sent updates with pictures, which was fun to receive. I did not worry at all!
Azizah was a just awesome! She always responded to all my textmessages and sent us daily photos of Lola. I couldn't be happier with her services. Thanks for beeing such a great host for our pup!
I think I was certainly a pain as a dog owner being overly concerned with my somewhat spoiled beagle.
I had written a bunch directives and went on and on in person about nuances of Holly's (my beagle) needs wants and behavior.

Azizah was just so very nice. She obviously was understanding of me and seemed to take in everything so as to care for Holly the way I had hoped. Holly also quickly felt at ease by Azizah and her natural way with dogs.

She texted some pictures and little updates which i was so glad to receive. Holly was happy to see us when we did pick her up but I don't think she wanted to leave Azizah. We could not have had Holly stay with a better and more thoughtful dog sitter .... Thanks Azizah!
