Anthony took great care of my little one, updating me daily with pictures, and flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. I would recommend Anthony.
Anthony seems like a good guy who genuinely cares for animals. The house was a little cluttered which wasn't great for my dog that eats everything, but otherwise good.
We selected Anthony for our first experience with dogvacay, and couldn't have been happier.

I met with Anthony about a week before we booked, and it was clear that he was a dog person, as the dogs that were with him at the time seemed happy and comfortable.

Anthony was very accommodating with our request to drop off before 8:00 am, and was flexible upon pickup as well. Our dog was a little timid when arriving, but seemed to have perked up and made some new friends pretty quickly. Anthony sent pictures multiple times, which showed our pup having lots of fun, and made our time away more enjoyable.

We'll definitely use Anthony again when we're looking for a sitter.

Anthony was such a wonderful caretaker, it is difficult for me to find words-- but I'll try. He was kind, flexible, and extremely communicative. He clearly has sooo much experience with animals. When I dropped off my pup, Edie, he took time to let her explore, and get to know the other pets. He sent me photos of her running around the yard, jumping, and playing with the other dogs and snuggling. I could tell she was having a great time. It turned out that Edie wasn't doing well with Anthony's cats, so he was so kind and patient, letting her get used to them, recognizing that she was curious not vicious (even though I can imagine that her barking was annoying). By the end of the stay, he sent me a picture of her sleeping right next to one of the cats! In addition to all of this great stuff, Anthony was also so wonderful that he let Edie stay a couple of extra days (at the LAST MINUTE). I would gladly leave Edie with Anthony any time, and recommend him to all.

Anythony was great! He came and picked Leopold up and dropped him back off. He sent tons of pictures of my dog running around and having fun, it was great to have regular updates. My dog is a lot to handle! He has tons of energy and is always on the move. I feel that Anthony gave Leopold lots of love and attention.

Anthony took great care of my dog and sent me pictures throughout the weekend to show how well he was doing. Would definitely recommend Antbony.
Was very accommodating last minute!
Anthony watched our Bubbley boy for a whole week while we were out of town and I knew he was in good hands. Bubbley always comes home worn out from Anthony's as he always has a number of other dogs to play with. Anthony was very helpful with dropping out pup back off which helped a lot after a busy week away! We will definitly be using Anthony's services again :) thanks Anthony!

Anthony is truly one of a kind, and is by far the best pup caretaker and host I have ever encountered. He graciously took on my rescue mutt, Norman, last minute; my dog isn't the easiest, she's timid, but non-aggressive, with strangers and with new dogs. Anthony not only kept her safe and happy, but his wisdom and finesse with dogs led her to actually interact happily with other animals, and he sent plenty of photos! She clearly felt happy and safe with him. I've never seen her happier in the company of other dogs (all the while he was very cautious and careful, which I appreciated). He kept close contact with me and was beyond generous in the pick up time. Don't look elsewhere! Anthony is truly the best experience for me and my dog.

I've booked with Anthony several times. He has been a great host for my special girl, Maggie. Maggie was abused before we rescued each other. Anthony has been nothing but kind and sweet to my Maggie. I will always try Anthony first when booking on DogVacay.

Anthony took great care of Dez who proved to be a not so easy guest. But, Anthony dealt with every issue and in the end, Dez had a great stay.
Anthony was very accomidating to my dog on the holiday weekend. He asked a ton of questions beforehand to make sure it would be a good fit for everyone. Anthony sent lots of picture updates to let me know my dog was doing great.
Ruby had a terrific stay with Anthony. He is very responsive throughout the booking process and sent me pictures during the stay to set my mind at ease. Anthony went above and beyond calming Ruby when the 4th of July fireworks spooked her. Thanks again! This was our 2nd time using Anthony and already have another visit booked.

Anthony was super-friendly and treated my dog with the utmost love and care. My little Molly is a little bit of a princess and can be challenging at times, but Anthony took it in stride!
Anthony was a great host. Sent us regular updates with plenty of pictures and the dogs always were having a good time. They got plenty of attention from both Anthony and other dogs. I would recommend Anthony.
Anthony was great with our anxious pup and made him feel right at home. We loved getting frequent photo updates and appreciated his flexibility with drop-off and pick-up times. It was a fun surprise to find special treats in Buddy's bag after we picked him up!

Anthony is really a great host, very reliable and responsible person. During the period my dog Mina visited, he always kept updating her situation every day. Mina also made new friends with his friendly pets! Moreover, after I got my dog back to home, I then found out the small gifts/treats in my dog's cage! He is absolutely wonderful host. Highly recommended.

Anthony was very memorable to Randy. When Randy saw Anthony again he was howling and being Mr. Jumpy pup and giving him kisses! It amazes me how comfortable Randy was with Anthony. Anthony is truly genuine and caring and definitely we'll be seeing him soon again! Thank you!

Cody had a wonderful stay with Anthony
Anthony was amazing with Cuervo, as usual. He sent me pictures of them in the park, sleeping, playing with other dogs! Plus, he gave Cuervo some nice treats and presents when he dropped him off! I totally recommend him!
Anthony was amazing! Our sitter cancelled on us at the last minute, and Anthony came to the rescue. Our dog stayed with him for 10 days, and seemed to have a great time. Anthony provided a ton of updates and pictures, which was reassuring since our dog had not been there before and since we were away for so long. He even sent some doggie treats with our pup at the end of the stay. We will definitely be repeat customers!

Levi's stay with Anthony was wonderful. Anthony texted photos of both their many walks and Levi and 'friends' at Anthony's home. He is an enthusiastic dog lover and accommodated my picking up Levi well after midnite when my train was delayed. He even sent me home with a bag full of doggie treats and toys as a gift!

Dora seems to enjoy her stay with Anthony. Lots of toys and cats to play with. Thank you Anthony
Anthony was absolutely amazing! This was our first time using DogVacay and I was definitely a skeptic, but my husband and I had just moved to the area and were at a loss at what to do with our fur babies. Everything was very easy and natural and Anthony was great, we'll be using him again!

We couldn't be more grateful to have found Anthony. He clearly loves dogs and has a gift with them. We appreciated the photo updates while we were gone, and our dog came home happy, calm, and exhausted after her time with him. Finding Anthony was such a relief -- we will no longer worry about leaving our dog when we are away!

Nikko had a great stay with Anthony. I would recommend anyone to use Anthony, in great faith, that your pet would be cared like his own.
This was my first DogVacay experience, and I was so lucky to find Anthony. He was cheerful, friendly, and accommodating as my booking was pretty last minute, and I had travel problems and had to kind of punt the pickup. And he put up with my Junie with that same cheerfulness, and emailed me pictures of her stay with him.
I would recommend Anthony to anyone looking for a pet sitter without hesitation.

I was able to enjoy my weekend away because I knew Maggie, my dog, was in such good hands.
Our 13-year-old husky, Jersey, had a great time with Anthony! He was wonderful at being mindful of her needs as an older dog and administering her arthritis medicine. We received photo updates to keep us posted on how Jersey was doing. He was also very flexible on pick up and drop off times, which was a huge help.

Anthony took well care of Gunner when he stayed with him over the weekend. Gunner came back home happy and tired. I would recommend Anthony to anyone thinking of going away.
Anthony was very responsive and super accommodating, even shifting his schedule for our preferred pick up time. I would highly recommend!
Anthony is the best! He loves taking care of dogs and it shows. Fenway and Brady are very happy with Anthony and I can travel carefree. Highly recommend!
Anthony has watched my dog, Inu, numerous times, and he's FANTASTIC!!! Anthony is so caring and sweet with Inu. I love getting emails and pictures from Anthony while I'm away full of details from all the fun walks and adventures he takes Inu on. My dog can be a little difficult sometimes, and Anthony is the ultimate dog lover - always understanding, loving, and patient with Inu. Anthony is also the best with being flexible with our schedule and pick up/drop off times. After Inu's most recent stay, I don't think my dog wanted to come home because he had the best time with Anthony!! I don't think anyone could leave their pets in better, more caring hands!

I can't come up with enough kind words to say about Anthony. Anthony took care of our two mini poodles and he was AMAZING. We felt so comfortable with him and the dogs did great. I hate leaving my pups but this was easy as I knew they were being loved like we love them. Such a great experience and Anthony will be our forever sitter.

Anthony was an amazing host for Wilber! He picked him up and dropped him off, since he knew we didn't own a car. He sent us lots of pictures, and ensured us Wilber was in good hands. He responds very quickly, and has wonderful customer service. We will definitely use him again!

Anthony was the first one I found here, but I am lucky that he is definitely the best one! He really knows how to deal with dogs, and he is very reliable and responsible. I received many updates and pictures during the period. I can tell from the pictures that my baby really enjoyed a great "vacation"! I will definitely book reservations again in the future. Love the experience!

Anthony took good care of my precious pup, and I'm particularly grateful for his flexibility with my crazy travel schedule. Thanks, Anthony!
Again Anthony ROCKS as a petsitter! My dogs were loved and cared for. Daisy's behavioral issues were not a problem due to Anthony's amazing intuition and dedication. I was at peace knowing they were getting attention and love.
I needed to book a last minute stay for my dog Charlie due to a family matter out-of-state. Anthony replied within an hour of my reaching out and agreed on a brief meet and greet/pickup for a few hours later the same day. This was my first DogVacay experience and despite my trepidation, knew that my dog was in good hands after meeting with Anthony. Charlie stayed with him for 3 days and during that time, Anthony communicated via text, as was my preference. The proactive updates during Charlie's stay was reassuring and he was very responsive to any queries I had. After Charlie's stay, Anthony worked seamlessly with me to coordinate a late night drop-off to a friend's. I also received pictures of Charlie being introduced to Anthony's cats, an opportunity that he's not had before. Overall, a very positive experience and more than fair price for the level of attention my dog requires. Will use in the future for planned stays and recommend to friends. Thanks Anthony!

Anthony was kind and attentive with my dogs! He seemed to know exactly what to do and handled Calvin and Daisy with confidence, love, and thoughtfulness. My dogs warmed up to him immediately.
We are so lucky to have found Anthony. He is organized, professional, kind and patient. Its people like Anthony that make the world go round. Scout absolutely adored him and we feel the same.
I found Anthony with just a few days before leaving for Christmas Holiday! He responded within a few minutes, which I really appreciate. He took really good care of my Cuervo and even put up with all his "accidents" with love! What I liked the most about Anthony is that I could see he was really loving being with Cuervo; it's not just a job but he loves doing it and that gave me great confidence.

Best Dog sitting experience ever!!! Not only was Anthony a doll with Charlie, our dog; but he took us to the airport AND picked us up for a nominal fee.

Definitely recommend!!! Will use again.
