Our dog Abby had a great time at Jim's. It was comforting for her having friendly dogs as company during her stay. We will be calling Jim again when the need arises.
This was the first time our dog Cassie who is 16 years old stayed with a stranger all day and overnight. She did very well and we texted several times to see how she was doing. Jim always got back to us and told us how she was. He loves dog sitting and we will definitely use his service again when we need it.
Jim was very patient and caring towards my high energy pup. It was our first time leaving our pup overnight and we were anxious but Jim put our mind at ease by giving us constant updates and sending pictures.
Very easy to make reservation. Easy to find location. But most of all, very good care of our precious one! We will go back.
Great experience. Jim was a great sitter.
It was our first time using Dog Vacancy and we were very insecure about leave our dog. But, It was a great experience. Jim was a great sitter.
Jim was awesome and our fur babies definitely enjoyed their stay with him. We got frequent updates with adorable pictures. He was always quick to respond and allowed us to pick up and drop-off at a time convenient to us. Will definitely use Jim again!
We had a last minute event. Him was very helpfull. He kept our fur baby so we could go. He genuinely cares for all dogs.
Jim is the first dog sitter with whom I have left my baby. I usually have a family member go to my house and feed him and then leave. My baby was so much happier and healthier staying at Jim's because it was like he was at home, but only better because he made new friends to play with.
always is comforting to know we can leave scout with jim and chuck and he will be welcomed in like family.
Overall, everything was fine. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because it would have been nice to have had updates on my pet sent since this was the first time I had used this service. I did email Jim and he did respond back quickly. Other than that everything seemed fine.
Jim is great to work with. He takes a lot of the stress out of finding a place for your pets to be taken care of while you are away. It is easy to see how much he loves and wants them to have a comfortable, happy time away from home. We have brought our dogs to see him twice now and I could tell they were excited to be back when I dropped them.
Jim was great. My dogs can be a handful. One is scared of men and the other is an escape artist, who I expected to be missing when I came home from our vacation, but Jim took great care of them and was very understanding about our unexpected delay in returning. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs someone to care for their dog(s).
I felt comfortable leaving Pepper with Jim. He was obviously a dog lover and I knew she would be well cared for. Jim was always responsive to my texts about her progress. I would use him again.
Both Chilly and Ellie Belle are excited to visit Jim and stay with him while we're out of town. They love being in a real home with someone who genuinely wants to take care of them. We also look forward to getting pictures of our pups while we're away!
Ellie Belle loves staying with Jim and his dogs!
Jim is so great with my Ellie Belle! She loves being in a real home while I'm away.
Jim is a great host. Teddy and Truman love staying with him and his dogs! My pups always come back very happy. Jim is very responsive, great about sending me pictures and updates so I can see how the babies are doing. Highly recommend.
Jim is so great with our dogs! They always look forward to going to his house for a vacay. Thank you, Jim!
Truman and Tedfy had a blast with Jim, and I was extra pleased - he was extremely responsive and reported to me how they were doing every day, including sending me picture updates. I would definitely book again
Winston always has a great time at Jim's. He treats him as if he were his own. Winston has fun playing with Jim's two dogs, and they all get along fine. Winston looks forward to his stays with Jim.
Jim is just great with Winston. Winston can't wait to get to Muddy Paws. He knows the road and he gets really excited when we arrive. He can't wait to get inside and play with Peanut and Chuck, his canine pals. Winston is becoming a regular customer and plans to visit more often.
This was the first time that I have left my boy with Jim and he was so well looked after. Jim sent me multiple photo's over the weekend and lots of updates. I felt so much better being away knowing that my boy was in a loving home. Jim is now my go to for dog sitting when I travel, and actually my boy is staying with him for a couple of weeks very soon. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending Jim to anyone.
Winston had a great time and got along well at Muddy Paws and with the owner's two boxers. Winston took to Dave right away which is great because Winston is a little cautious with men. Will go back soon! Deb Stark
David and Jim are great hosts! They do a wonderful job with my babies!
Its always a pleasure leaving my dog scout with jim and the gang at muddy paws! Hes welcomed and cared for just as much as he is at home. He even set up a small pool for my water loving dog to play in!
Im very pleased with scouts stay with jim, chuck, and peanut. I have a very hyper, overactive lab and jim was patient with him and kept him entertained. I felt skeptic about leaving him in a regular boarding home. This was a perfect environment for my baby and I will recommend muddy paws to all my friends and family! Again i appreciate them taking my scout into there home and carring for him.
Everything was great, we are planning on leaving Chino again with David and Jim,
The stay was short and sweet .Trip didn't seem to be in any rush to leave there when I picked her up. Of course she got to sleep with David, & his boxers Chuck & Peanut, instead of a crate so what's not to like ? Now guess where she sleeps ! It is so nice to know where I can leave her if something comes up. She had never been away from me before.
I liked the "home" setting for my older dog. David is clearly a "dog lover." He is very attentive to the details in caring for your dog while you are away!
David and Jim were awesome with my babies! The pics I received were great and gave me a sense that my dogs were happy and having a great time! I will definitely use Muddy Paws again!
Eleanor had a wonderful time with David. I didn't worry one bit that she was in a loving home the whole time I was away. I received photos every other day and other updates as needed. I'll definitely have her stay here again!
David takes good care of the dogs in his care
I had a great experience with Muddy Paws. My dog was well cared for and they were very helpful taking my dog over a holiday. Thank you!!
Muddy Paws, took Prancer in on very notice short. Their service is greatly appreciated. Chuck and Peanut greeted like an friend.
This was a great experience for our beautiful dog "Prancer," and for us. The initial "interview" was great, and our canines connected well. We had a sense of security that all would be well in our absence, and it was. We did receive update-photos as promised, and were reassured that our baby was in good hands. When we returned to claim her, she was in great spirits and looked great. Probably best of all, she was not exhausted for the next couple of days, like she is when we board her in a kennel. Thanks!
My husband and I went on vacation for a week and were really worried about our new puppy being on his own. We were so surprised when we received almost daily picture updates while we were on vacation! It was also really wonderful to be able to see our dog stay at someone's home, be given lots of attention, and look like he had a ton of fun when we picked him up! We look forward to having our dog stay with David again!!!
Finally, a little family getaway after a busy school year and start to the summer, but what to do with our loveable boy, Max? Unfortunately the hotel only allows pets up to 25lbs; talk about discrimination. But that's a topic for another day. We live far away from family, so that wasn't really an option. I started reviewing some places for pet boarding, but I didn't really want to pay someone to keep my 50lb pet locked up all day with only 30 minutes of attention. Then finally after clicking link after link I ran across dogvacay. I saw the profile for David and thought, wow, this would be perfect for my Max. He would get plenty of attention and friends to play with. I will say I was a little nervous at the thought of leaving him with strangers, but as soon as we met them I knew Max was in perfect hands. He was so well taken care of and was completely wiped out when we picked him up. They even sent a picture of Max to us while we were laying on beach. I will definitely use their service again! Thank you again for taking care of our boy!
