About Mike and Wendy

We are back! We took a year off to let our new dog, Betty White settle in to her home. She is a 1.5 year old Lab/Pointer mix, very sweet, playful, and high energy! If your dog likes to play, Betty is sure to tire them out! (But she's also good at picking up cues when dogs don't want to play and does well with those dogs too.)

We are dog lovers who know firsthand how important it is to leave your pet family members in the hands of people you trust. We love making dogs of all shapes and sizes happy puppies, and will give your furry family member a temporary home to help you have a stress free trip. We text photos and updates so you can see firsthand your pooch's vacation.

We have lots of experience with dogs of many breeds and ages (particularly elderly dogs), and a nice yard to hang out in - with occasional visits from friendly neighbor pups. We're happy to play fetch, hang out on the couch, or take your pooch on adventures in the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains. Guest pups are supervised in our secure yard and welcomed inside at all times.

We know routine makes for a happy puppy. You let us know the kind of exercise and schedule you keep with your pooch, and we'll make it happen! We have a pretty active lifestyle, so hikes, runs, walks, dog parks, any and all of it is available! But we also like to take it easy and chill with older puppies.

We have flexible schedules to accommodate all needs. Mike is a writer who is usually home and walks Betty at least twice a day.

As we have both small dog and child neighbors, dog guests must be kid- and other dog-friendly. We require a meet-and-greet before booking.

Our experience was just wonderful, from scheduling a visit to picking up our dog at the end of a full week's stay. Mike sent photos regularly, and I could tell our dog was being very well cared for. A kind and loving animal host!
Mike and Wendy made both of our dogs feel so at home. They sent pictures and kept us updated with how each of them were doing. It gave us such comfort that they were in such good care.
This was a great place for my golden retriever. Mike was careful to ask about her likes and dislikes, her daily schedule, and her regular behaviors so as to be alert to her needs, and to try to make things as easy as possible for her in unfamiliar surroundings away from her "mom". She received lots of cuddle time, which I'm sure was very reassuring, and came home tired and relaxed. This stay was a trial to see how well she did there, as she'd never been boarded in the 5 years since I adopted her. I am happy to say that I will be very comfortable making future reservations with them.
Coco did fine at Mike & Wendys. They sent me pictures along with updates on how Coco was doing during her stay, which is something I really appreciated. They were also very accommodating in taking her for me for daycare, even tho I only gave short notice on my request. :)
Mike was great! He took Blue, our 5 year old Husky mix last minute. Blue is a big boy, 80 lbs and has long white hair. He immediately liked Betty, but maybe a little too much, because he ended up hurting his leg during one of their chases. Mike was great about asking if he should take Blue to the vet, and then filled us in on what happened at the appointment. He would text pictures and notes about how Blue was doing, so we were able to enjoy our vacation worry-free. We would definitely use Mike again. Note: Wendy was on vacation too.
Sophie had a blast with Mike and Wendy and their extended dog family (none of their own but lots in their circle of friends or play dates). We never had a moment of worry especially as they sent us lots of puppy picture texts of Sophie playing sleeping and smiling. I highly recommend this host but we want first dibs!!
I had a great experience with Mike and Wendy. They are both very caring, friendly, and took great care of Ovidio. They wer attentive to his needs and tried to replicate his normal schedule as closely as possibe. They kept me posted with his pictures. I am going to leave Ovidio with them for two weeks, when we leave on vacation.
This was our first time using dogvacay. We were more than thrilled! Mike and Wendy were fantastic! They asked specific questions about our pup Shiner, to make sure his stay was fun and safe. They text us pictures of him throughout the day, so we always knew how he was doing. After a long day of love and fun, he slept like a baby. Mike and Wendy are hardcore dog lovers. They have a medium size backyard that is perfect for dogs. Shiner was playing in the yard with dog toys before we even left him! I would highly recommend Mike and Wendy for your dog watching needs!
Mike and Wendy, who took our 9 month old lab last minute, are warm, kind-hearted people and very nice for humans to interact with. As for our dog, they exercised her, played with her, set up a baby pool for her to splash in, had doggie playmates over, and she came home calm and happy. I'm know our dog, who is still a rambunctious teenager, was annoying at times, and Mike and Wendy were nothing but sweet about her. My husband thought our dog seemed a little depressed about being home! Highly recommended. I hope they will take her/us again in the future!
From the meet-and-greet, Mike and Wendy put my mind at ease about leaving our dog with someone we didn't know. Their yard was a good size with double gates, which made it secure, and our dog had inside and outside privileges which made it even more desirable. Even though it was a short stay, they were kind enough to send images of our dog making himself at home in their house. Highly recommended!
Mike and Wendy were fantastic, we could not be happier! They clearly love animals and our dogs Otis and Ginger where in love with them. We had a bit of a health scare with Otis which we noticed when we were just about to leave, and they ended up taking him to our vet just to be sure (it was an infection and he's fine). They went above and beyond and made sure that we came home to a clean house and happy pets. Thank you Mike and Wendy!!
Mike and Wendy were fantastic. Our puppy Clayton just loved them. In fact, I was pretty sure he did not want to come back home.

They took great care of him, kept him active, and gave him a ton of love.

They continued to update us by sending us pictures of what they were doing and the fun Clayton was haivng.

I would definitely use Mike and Wendy again in the future.
