Such an easy experience, a warm welcoming environment for our little pooch. I would highly recommend Patricia to anyone with a small dog, who needs a sitter. Their home is nice and clean and the dogs have ample space to run and play. Our dog had such a great time and will be back soon!
Patricia did an amazing job. Wilson loved his time there. She sent text messages daily with video clips, pictures and updates on how he was doing. I will definitely use her again in the future.
Our little Jake loves spending time at the Lovenburg home! Thank you so much!
This was our 2nd time with Patricia and her husband. We absolutely adored them. They truly treat your pet as their own. We are pretty particular about what food to feed our dog, and I did a ton of research and polled every dog owner I know before settling on a brand. We were very pleased to see that Patricia feeds her dogs the same brand. Her own dogs are lovely and ours has a great time playing with hers. We've just booked them for a 3rd time for an upcoming trip. I tried to book her for our most recently passed vacation, but she is popular and does book up quick. I'd recommend you book as soon as your plans are confirmed.
Patricia and her husband were AMAZING! Our puppy is pretty timid and needs a little extra TLC when we are away--and the Lovenburgs gave her just that! I received videos every day of how she was doing and sweet texts from Patricia. In all of the videos, all of the dogs looked so happy to be there! It was so nice to know that our baby was having so much fun and was so comfortable that she wouldn't miss us too much!
I've used other sitters and have not been as impressed with any of them as I have with Patricia and her husband. They are warm and inviting and their home is perfect for small dogs! I'm so glad we've found them because now there is no one else I'd rather have our puppy stay with while we're away!
Patricia was just wonderful. A loving caregiver to our little dog. I highly recommend her to anyone. So attentive and caring. Thank you!
My dog had the most wonderful vacation with Patricia, they were the perfect hosts to my little dog! My dog got plenty of attention, and most importantly a lot of love and exercise! If you have a small dog, look no further than Patricia: she is the best!
My dog had a wonderful stay. Patricia had a nice clean house and was very caring of the animals. She kept me updated with video and pictures. I would definitely have my dog stay again!
I brought my 1year old mini Shih Tzu for a play day and Patricia and Terry made me feel quite comfortable as I was shown around. They took to Laurie (my sweet pea) and Laurie took to them immediately. They even sent videos to prove how much she didn't miss me - lol! A very nice home and yard filled with good vibes... I highly recommend this couple. -Dorothy S.
We met with Patricia and her husband ahead of time, we took our little ones Izzy and Pebbles to meet them too. We wanted to see how out fur babies would react to them. Our minds were at ease as our babies checked out everything, and instantly approved of where they would be staying. Pat sent us a video everyday to show us how the girls were doing. They looked very comfortable, Pebbles took over Pat's warming blanket, and Izzy looked like she was in charge. They came home happy, and resumed their stress free lives....I would highly recommend Pat to those with little ones, we now refer to her as the Fairydogmother. Thank you, thank you, thank you....Pat and Linda Willick.
Sometimes you don't want to share a really good thing because everyone else will want it too. One's afraid that the good thing will become exhausted from over use by others. However, I'm going to be selfless and tell all of you that Patty is the best. From the moment I met Patty, I knew she was compassionate and conscientious about her work. She is organized and immediately responsive to any questions by email, telephone or in person. My dog was happy when we picked her up but not her usual excited to see us after we had been gone for a while. We'll get over it . Our trip away was so enhanced by the confidence we felt having Patty & her husband,Terry, taking care of our dog. Thank you Patty & Terry.
Patricia and her husband took wonderful care of our dog while we were away on vacation. They sent videos everyday so our kids could see how much fun the dog was having. We couldn't have been happier with this experience! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter.
A+++ as always.
We were totally pleased with Patricia and Terry Lovenburg. We loved the videos that Patricia sent us of Mandy playing hard in the back yard with her other companions. It was clear to us that Mandy had a great time and was well cared for. We will definitely take Mandy there again.
Very happy first time for us hopefully next time in town we will visit patty and terry thanks again for all your help and love Shirley Dan and bear ❤️
Patricia was just fabulous! We received daily video's of our little minature schnauzer Rommy playing and having a great time. My husband and I both sgree that our next out of town trip we will stay with Patricia and Rommy can travel out of town.
Never have to worry about our little girl.
A++ as always
Patricia and her husband, Terry, are amazing with my puppy! They are patient, kind and loving. They take excellent care of the dogs in their care. They have a beautiful yard with a large lawn where my little girl loves to play. They have a doggie door so the dogs can go inside the house too. Patricia sends me adorable videos of my puppy playing which is so thoughtful! When making a reservation, Patricia replies very quickly. Their dogs Willie and Ebony are very sweet little dogs. I am so happy I found Patricia on Dog Vacay. I know that when I drop my little girl off she is going to be well cared for and have a fun day! My little girl loves going to their house! I highly recommend Patricia.
Patty and Terry were terrific. They were loving and kind to our little guy and sent pictures and videos daily. Would highly recommend them and will definitely use them again! Thanks for a great experience.
Finally a vacation without worrying about our dogs. Patricia sent us updates daily and we could tell they were well taken care of. Videos helped see how well they got along with other dogs. We have already requested another reservation. Have finally found our dogs only boarder.
Our favorite dog sitters in town!
We left Sadie for the first time with Patricia. I was sure she would be in good hands even at our Meet and Greet. Patricia is a kind and caring person. She sent pictures and videos showing Sadie having a great time and learning how to use the doggy door. I'm so relieved to find someone while we're away where I don't have to worry.
Toby had a great stay with Patricia. She was so sweet and sent me videos of him playing and having fun. Thank you!
Patricia and Terry are great hosts. Our dog has some separation anxiety and they were very understanding, kind and caring.
They sent a video everyday so that I could see how happy she was.
I would not hesitate to book with them again.
I highly recommend this host home for you small dog.
Thank you so much for taking such great care of my senior dog Oscar I know he really got attached to you guys and your other little dogs he had a really fun time having other little guys to play with. You will definitely be our first choice to have care for Oscar when we can't take him with us. Thank you again for the great comforting care.
Patricia and Terry were referred to us by a friend and I can say that they're the best. We set up a meet and greet first before we left our puppy for 3 nights and I knew right then and there that Phoebe will be in a good and loving care. Their house and backyard is very clean and big that pets are free to run around without straying. Pat is very welcoming and accommodating and has genuine concern for dogs. While we were away, Pat will send us a video of Phoebe everyday and that made our vacation worry-free knowing that she's in good hands. When we came back to pick her up, Phoebe looked healthy and well taken care of. We're so happy that we found a great pet sitter close to our home and we will definitely leave our Phoebe with them again. Thanks, Patricia and Terry!
Jake always has such a wonderful time at the Lovenburg home!
We left our Maltese with Patty. We appreciated receiving daily photos and videos. Patty has a very dog friendly home and took our puppy on daily walks. It was nice to know that our dog was not left alone and was being cared for while we were away.
Patricia was fantastic with our 2 mini schnauzers. She provided regular walks/exercise and sent us text updates including videos of our happy boys on a daily basis. When we picked up the boys they were happy and healthy. Would definitely use Patricia's services again, and highly recommend her!!
Kobe's experienced at Pat/ Terry is really good. He's very happy and well taken care of. We will surely back to their care nxt time!
Our little Jake loves going over to the Lovenburg's home for doggy day care!
We love bringing our little dog to the Lovenburg's home! They are both very sweet and loving dog sitters....we highly recommend them!
We couldn’t be happier. This was a long time to be away from our little girl but Patricia and Terry sent us a video every day. We knew she was in great hands. We were worried she wouldn’t want to leave she was having so much fun. That's the way pet sitter stays should be. :-)
Our dog had a wonderful overnight stay with Patricia and Terry. We were very pleased.
Charlie had a great stay with Patricia and Terry. They were very nice and attentive. They also sent videos every day which helped ease my mind. I would definitely recommend them!
Patricia was great with my dog. She was attentive and caring. I also loved receiving texts throughout the day to know my dog was having a good time. I also appreciated Patricia's quick responsiveness to my last second request for daycare. She even made time to have a quick meet and greet before, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend Patricia.
If your fur baby deserves to be pampered and treated like a member of the family, look no further! From the first moment we met with the Lovenburgs, any hesitation or doubt about leaving our little doggy immediately left ... you couldn't find a more ideal "home away from home" for your pet. We were appreciative of daily videos and updates, and were able to enjoy our vacation without doubt or concern. The only worry we had is that our girl would not want to leave her wonderful caretakers and their sweet doggies!
Patty and Terry couldn't be more perfect hosts. They have a lovely (and dog friendly) home and truly love their dogs and treated ours as one of their own. My whole family eagerly awaited each video (not just photos). Our dog clearly was loved, had plenty of attention, and was having a blast. Upon returning from our trip, we immediately booked them again for our next trip.
Patricia and Terry are very caring dog lovers and incredible dog sitters! Plus they have a beautiful yard for the dogs to run around and explore. My little Jake had a great time there and we'll definitely be contacting them again for another doggy daycare reservation.
Wonderful caring folks!! We will definitely be bringing are dog back.
Pat and Terry are the best dog sitter. It's our first time to leave our dog Gucci so we really made sure she's in good hands. Luckily when we had the meet and greet with Terry and Pat, we saw the affection Gucci has for them and vice versa. They have 2 small dogs which made a perfect playmate for Gucci. We also like the idea that they let the dogs roam around and play a lot in their beautiful backyard. Pat sent us videos of Gucci everyday. We will surely bring back Gucci to this couple the next time we go out of town.
My dog Kat had a great time at Lovenburg. Patricia sent updates regularly. When it came time to pick Kat up, she seemed to not want to leave. I've already asked them to watch Kat again while I'm out of town.
We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that our two small dogs, Teddy and Benny were in great care of Patricia and her husband. Daily videos of our babies playing in backyard, resting and having a great time were so appreciated. We strongly recommend Patricia for anyone who need a pet sitter. We will definitely be using Patricia for future care of our pets while we are out of town. Thank you, Patricia!!
Patricia and her husband took our dog on at least one walk per day sent us daily photos. They had a nice landscaped back yard where he could run and play. They definitely deserve a 5 rating!
We'll start by saying our 2-year old Honeybun has never been on a "dog vacay". eShe's used to being with my retired husband 24/7 sinceadopting her in February; so we were a bit apprehensive how she'd do with strangers and/or other dogs. . We're so glad we fally the Loven on Dog Vacay! rgs! Having a meet and greet was invaluable in easing our fears. The Lovenbuare were so frienTheir eing home is perfectly for sharing with dogs. Having a large, fully-enclosed backyard to keep even our not-so-obedient and little 10-pounder safe was assuring. Getting photos sent to us while away was great. Upon our return, wee learned Honeybun is an "alpha" even in a new home, but the Lovenburgs knew how to direct her. Their dogs even taught Honeybun how to use a doggy-door!If they are available, I would use them every tim Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!e! t up.
