About Matthew

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are animal lovers currently without any 4-legged residents. Both retired, in between our travels we're looking forward to hosting some canine friends. Our home is pet friendly with full access to an enclosed back yard. We currently volunteer at pet rescue centers, and occasionally foster for Westside German Sheppard Rescue.

We are a single household provider. We only take dogs from one household/family at a time.

Matthew and his wife are both retired dog lovers. They also have already been fostering pups for quite some time now. They have a lot experience, time to spend, and love to give to any pups on vacay with them! They have a great outdoor space and a doggy door for smaller pups to have outside access as well!
Roxy had a great time!
Matthew and Donna, once again, were awesome! Rocky loves going over there. They take excellent care of him, even now, when he's got a (temporary, but) ridiculous medicine regimen to keep track of! They always keep us updated, and Rocky always returns happy and loved! Thanks again Matt and Donna!
Donna, Matthew, and Ash were great hosts for my 60 pound pitbull, Baron. He loved the attention he received and quickly made the house his own. Baron has pretty bad fear/leash aggression towards other dogs and Matthew and Donna were able to control him. I received plenty of updates and would love to have Donna and Matthew host Baron again!
We cannot rave enough about our experience here. Bringing our dogs here felt like bringing them to stay at our aunt and uncle's house - Matt and Donna loved them like they are family!
We have 2 big dogs that aren't always the easiest (they are strong, have some leash aggression, steal food from countertops, and one of them loves to dig holes and needs medication every evening). But for the 9 days our pups spent here, they received amazing care. We received pictures every couple of days that made it clear our dogs have practically forgotten about us! They even slept in the bed with Matt and Donna (after they ok'd that with us), which is no small feat with two 70lb dogs! When they came home, it was clear they were being fed well and receiving multiple walks a day.
It is such a relief to know that there is someone nearby who will take care of your dogs as well as you do when you need to leave town. Thank you Matt and Donna!
Matt and Donna took really good care of my dog Bernie! They are very friendly and have a GREAT space for Bernie to play and relax. I ended up having some changes in my plans and they were very quick to respond to my communication. And I loved all the pictures they sent. :) Bernie would like to go back and stay again soon!
My dog had a great stay! Matthew and his wife are very loving and took great care of my dog! They have a lovely backyard and Hank definitely enjoyed himself!
Could not have asked for nicer people to care and love on my dog.Would recommend them to anyone.
Overall great and easy experience. Cared and loved all over my dog.Will definitely use them again.
I definitely would rate Matt and Donna as seriously loving dog people.They were very caring for my dog summer, and they were very accommodating to me who changed plans on them many times. Summer will be visiting them again.
Loved Matthew and Donna, would have my pup stay with them again in heartbeat! Very caring and responsible people.
Our favorite DogVacay host yet! This was for an additional day to accommodate our late pick-up time. See my previous review for full details. Thanks!!
Exceptional dogvacay hosts. We are so lucky to have found them to care for our dogs while we were out of town. Not only did they provide a safe, comfortable environment, but they also checked in with us daily (pictures included), and went above and beyond to care for our dog's swollen paw. They feel like family!
My boys Chauncey and Lucky had a wonderful vacay at Mathew and Donna's house. Both Mathew and Donna are dog lovers and it shows. We even got some really cute pictures sent to us showing a couple of very happy dogs.
Matt and Donna were great! We were comfortable leaving our 3 dogs in their care and the dogs were happy to be there. We never worried.....
Some things we loved:
They sent us daily photo updates
The dogs slept in bed with them!!
accommodating on short notice
Understand the needs of each dog
Super loving towards the pups

We highly recommend and will book again!
Matthew and Donna were great sitters! They took great care of Rocky, sent lots of photos where Rocky looked like he was having a ball! They looked after him just like we would!
Matt and Donna were amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better situation for Molly. They truly took in and cared for Molly like she was their own and it seemed as though Molly accepted them as her second family by the end of her stay. They took Molly out for multiple walks a day and let her run around in their fenced in back yard and gave us daily updates on how she was doing. We really hope we'll never have to leave Molly with any one other than Matt and Donna!
Matt & Donna were great. They have a lovely home and enclosed yard perfect for any dog. I was not able to pick up my dog as scheduled, and Matt & Donna were very accommodating to keep him an extra night. I received various photos of my guy while I was away and am convinced he had a great stay. Donna even made him an amazing breakfast when his kibble ran out. Thanks Matt & Donna - Chance will definitely be staying with you again.
