About Leonardo

We are a young married couple with 2 boys that live in our cozy house close to Joe Pool Lake. Both of us grew up with dogs, cats, ducks, roosters, hamsters and a ferret. Therefore, we really love animals, big and small and hope to pass this passion for animals to our children. We have had dealt with different attitudes in dogs and therefore understand that every dog is different and needs attention in its own way.

We will take care of your dog according to your standards and instructions, including lots of love at no extra charge! Additionally, we are very active people and we exercise almost daily. That means your dog will have plenty of work-out and play time; including trips to a big park 2 blocks from our house. Alternatively, Joe Pool Lake is only 1 mile from our house, so if you want we can also arrange for trips to the lake.

Toby had a great time with Leonardo, Amparo, their kids and Blu. They graciously included him on their family hikes which I'm sure he loved. They responded quickly when I wanted to check on Toby and they also sent pics from time to time which was nice. This couple is also very accommodating when it came to drop off and pickup times which I truly appreciated. I can't thank them enough for caring for Toby while I was out of town.

Leonardo and his family did a fantastic job with our dogs on very short notice. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were very accommodating to us! If we swing back through the area and require some dog-sitting, we will surely use Leo again!
Joe had such a great time with Leonardo's dog and his two adorable kids. He sent me pictures throughout each day and I could see my pup having a great time. I give him my highest recommendation!!!
My dog enjoys coming to his home. It's his home away from home.
Leonardo and his family treated my dog Princess as part of his family taking her to events, hiking, and out on walks. He sent me daily pictures and updates. She was having as much fun on vacation as we were. I will definitely take her back.
This will be the second year we use Leonardo. They're great with dogs, their adorable little boy (3) now, loves walking her. We get multiple daily texts from Leonardo or his wife. Wouldn't want anyone else!
Just want to Thank Leonardo and his wonderful Family for taking great care of Zeus my best buddy!! Would recommend them to anyone - Thank You Again -
Leonardo and his family were great with my dog Chewy. They are the cutest family and provide excellent and prompt service. Will definitely be using them again.
Leonardo and Amparo were absolutely fabulous hosts for Prince, our Great Dane. This was our first time using a sitting service and my husband and I were nervous; however we knew the moment we met this adorable couple and their children at the meet-and-greet visit that they would be awesome sitters. It's so evident that they love animals and Prince sensed that immediately. We received daily updates and photos while we were away, which we so appreciated. I would not hesitate to leave Prince with Leonardo and his family in the future. They are great hosts.

I was bumped on my first initial flight, I was suppose to arrived Sunday instead of Monday. Thank you Leonardo and family for understanding.
My dog Shelton was in the best of care ,with Leonardo and his family. Wonderful couple who I will highly recommend to anyone. From a scale from one to ten it would be a ten.
Leonardo and Amparo were great. They kept me informed and sent lost of pictures. I was worried because my dog is very large (Great Dane) and he tends to be a hand full but he did great. My other dog Riley became best friends with their son. I definitely would book with them again!

Leonardo and Amparo were absolutely excellent with my dog. He got sick and they took him to the vet and got his meds for him. I loved receiving the daily pics and notes. He was very comfortable there and enjoyed playing with Elysio (sp?)? I will definitely use them again!!!!!

Leonardo was awesome! He was very accommodating and flexible when it came time to drop Suko off and pick him up. While I was gone, I received pictures of Suko from Leonardo every day, and I can tell he had a blast with their two adorable sons! Would definitely recommend Leonardo to anyone looking for a dog sitter; you can tell he enjoys doing this and sincerely cares for the dogs!

I will continue working with Leonardo, him and his family treat my dog extremely good. Great experience!! Thanks Leonardo.
PERFECT! Very accommodating with my last minute travel. Texted pictures were great. Will be back.
Leonardo and his wife Amparo were wonderful with our dogs! Their child was also awesome with the dogs! They are a friendly family and were sweet to our dogs! We set up a meet and greet before to make sure our dogs would act okay with a child and it went great! Their son knew to be gentle with dogs and friendly! Leonardo sent us multiple picture updates with our dogs and them playing and being walked! It was a great experience and we definitely use them again! Also they are flexible with times which helped us out greatly!

We were a little apprehensive at first with this program but it was GREAT with Leanardo and his family. I would highly recommend this family if you are looking for someone to watch your pet for a few days! We will certainly reach out to this family in the future if we ever need someone to watch our dog for a few days!

We were hesitant about leaving our 3 babies with total strangers for 5 nights. Leonardo was fantastic and quickly put our fears at ease. They have a wonderful home to keep the dogs and a great backyard for them to romp around in. So much better than a sterile confined kennel. He sent pics and texts every evening to keep us updated. We felt very comfortable leaving our dogs with him and would surely use him again. He works very well with dogs and people.

Our dogs had a great time with them for the weekend. They sent us pictures and updates throughout their stay. It is so nice knowing that our dogs are being taken care of and loved on while we are gone. They got to go on walks every day and they transitioned very smoothly into their home away from home. They are wonderful people and I highly recommend them to anyone that wants their dog to be cared for with the same attention and love that they get at home.

Talk about a real vacation without the stress of worrying about whether or not your furry kids are being taking care of like you do everyday! We have three wiener dogs with three very different personalities. Our rescue wiener, Verne, is a bit hesitant towards new people but Leonardo instantly took Verne from my hands and explained that from him showing his compassion towards Verne, Verne would feel comfortable. That is awesome and not only worked, but I had (as the primary dog everyday person), the best guilty free dog vacation ever! Leonardo and Amparo sent us pics and text everyday and added touches of our pups personality traits that one wouldn't know like, a regular dog "resort", unless you truly cared for our dogs. After day 3 of our 7 day vacation, and this is hard for me to admit, I forgot I had dogs! Haha!!!! That is saying something!

We could not have chosen a better family for our Foxie! We received daily updates with pictures and stories that warmed our hearts because we knew she was also enjoying 'her' vacation. The entire family treated her with love. One of the special treats she loves is oatmeal and it happened to be her morning snack.

Foxie had their home pets she could play with, but her favorite playmate was their little 2 year old son; who ... is the real star of this family for us! Why, because this little boy was able to take our dog and walk her 'painlessly', as opposed to how we both suffered when I took her out. They truly enjoyed their walks together and now so do Foxie and I.
What a BLESSING!

We thought it would be a great idea if we had Leonardo give her a much needed haircut and the result is Amazing! We have the most adorable little dog that was lost is unruly hair.

Now we have a beautifully-styled little dog that is also well trained in walking etiquette ... by the most adorable 2-year old little boy who loved our Foxie.

The Leonardo family is definitively a family who loves dogs and I highly recommend them if you truly want to give your loving dog an enjoyable and safe vacay!

My two dogs had a great time on their vacay with Leonardo and his family!! I got text and picture updates of their adventures and will definitely be using them again in the future.
Great hosts! Awesome to deal with. Compassionate and understanding. I didn't get the feeling that they were just "boarding" my furbabies. They were invested in their comfort and happiness. Can't thank them enough for the love and care they provided during a difficult time.

I highly recommend Leonardo E. My dogs were well-cared for and came home happy. I had to extend the reservation and they were very accommodating. Very nice couple. I would not hesitate to use them again (and no doubt will as I travel quite frequently). Oh! Bonus point: They send you pictures of your dog(s) during their stay so you don't worry about how they are faring.

I had friends planning to dogsit while I was out of the country, and they had to cancel at the last minute. I was on the internet looking for a kennel and ran across Dogvacay and saw Leonardo just a few miles from my house. He had good reviews, so I reached out to ask him some questions. He responded that night by email and called me early the next morning. I got a good vibe from him and booked the stay. I took my two dogs over that evening. He and his family were ready for our arrival. They had their own dogs crated, and got to know my dogs, then slowly eased their own into the mix. It was a calm transition with a very easy demeanor and steady hand. I felt comfortable my dogs were in good hands. I arrived back in the country a few hours later than I was supposed to, and it was no problem. When I retrieved my dogs I could tell that they were very comfortable and right at home and clearly had been treated very well. Easy all the way around and couldn't ask for a better dogsitter. This is a quality family, and very good with dogs. The dogs were much happier than if they had been put in a kennel. I recommend Leonardo and will definitely use them again.

Diesel had an awesome time with Leonardo and his family! He was taken in with care and was loved on often. He even got a chance to get in the pool :) ! Thank you again Leonardo!
I left Maya at the last minute with these guys and felt very comfortable with it as soon as I walked in their home. They sent daily pics and updates, and I felt like Maya was well cared for. I picked her up happy and tired! Will leave her here again.
Our experience with Leonardo was everything we hoped for and more. He and his wife Amparo were very courteous, caring, quick to respond, and accommodating. Their son was adorable, and their two dogs were perfect, compatible hosts also. One of our dogs is epileptic and needs daily oral medications. In addition, she travels with a vial and needle for an injection if she goes into a seizure. She did have a seizure and they handled it amazingly. We will definitely use them again, and highly recommend them also. Thank you!

Leonardo and his family took great care of my two energetic dogs. Karmin and Marshall had a blast playing with their dogs. Leonardo sent picture updates periodically to show that my babies were adjusting perfectly. I will definitely recommend Leonardo to others.

This was our first time using dogvacay. Leonardo and his family were great with our very friendly but hyper border collie/retriever mix. We actually have a tough time finding friends to dog sit for us because of her energy level so dogvacay was a good choice for us and Leonardo's home was a good fit.

Nice people. They take care of my dog good. I will recommend them for everyone.
Leonardo and Amparo were amazing and very accommodating with my 2 dogs. Picture and text updates were sent daily. Highly recommended and I would definitely contact Leonardo & Amparo for future vacation endeavors.
Leonardo and Amparo were able to assist us in caring for our chocolate lab puppy. They responded immediately with any questions we had.

Ranger had a great time. We received daily pictures and text updates. We would definitely recommend and also use them again.

Thanks :)

I was hesitant at first since this was a last minute and my first time using this service, but I was very pleased.
Mel seem more calm and relaxed as if he had a vacation too!
Leonardo has a very warm, gentle, & peaceful spirit that enables his dogs and mine to co-exist together happily. Thanks Leonardo!

Our friend had to back out of watching our hound, so we needed a last minute solution. I was worried about leaving my 'boy'. I did not want to settle for a kennel. I had never used DogVacy before, but when I saw Luvy Doggy Home’s profile on DogVacy, it seemed like a perfect fit. We arranged for a ‘meet-n- greet’, and they responded within a couple hours! After our visit, my first impression was confirmed: ‘Yup! Perfect fit!’ While we were away, Amparo and Leo sent us regular updates with pictures of Hoyt having a blast. Hoyt bonded so well with their son; we were not sure if he would want to come home!
Bottom line: It was so comforting to know that Hoyt was getting the personal attention he would never get in a kennel; as a result, we could enjoy our vacation. I know Hoyt will be visiting Luvy Doggy Home again. I highly recommend you consider them (and Dog Vacay) for your four legged family member too!

I have a very playful boxer. Leonardo and his family took great care of him. I will definitely recommend Leonardo to others.
So great! Leonardo and his family were wonderful with our pups. We had to book last minute and they took both of our dogs on within an hour of sending the first message. Amazing and highly recommended!!
I would like to say a big thank you to Leonardo and his wife for taking care of my dog, Marley. I needed someone last minute and he was available for me! He took great pics of Marley playing with his dogs and going out for a walk. They only said great things about my dog and how he was very loving and enjoyed going outside to play. I HIGHLY recommend Leonardo to anyone!!

I went with my husband on a 19 days trip to Brazil, and 3 months prior to the trip we were searching for pet sitting, and boarding services for our 3 years old dog (Rocky). After a lot of search, e-mails, and interviews with some pet sitters and boarding services people, we decided make reservation with Leonardo & Amparo.

All the time during our trip we were receiving updates about Rocky. Our first contact was throughout Skype (voice/video), so we could see live how comfortable and well adapted Rocky was with Leo's family/home. Besides using Skype (voice/video), every other day we were receiving e-mails with pictures of Rocky: playing around the house with Leo's kid; enjoying his new toys we asked Leo to buy; and enjoying the weekend at Cedar Hill Park with Leo's family.

Back to US we went directly from the airport to Leo`s home get our boy, and we were very happy to see Rocky exactly in the same way we left him.

We are very satisfied with Leonardo & Amparo boarding services, and we highly recommend them.
