Simon came home happy. Carlos picked him up and brought him home again, which was very convenient for us.
I think the most important take away for me about Carlos was his flexibility and accommodating approach. Over the two days that he took care of my puppy August (one of which days he was technically listed as booked but he took him anyway) my schedule was changing by the minute and he did his best to see to it that I got my money's worth for sure. All of the qualities that I look for in last minute dog care.
Would recommend. Kept my dog over Christmas weekend. Carlos was friendly and sent photos. She came home happy. Will return.
I had to find a sitter at the last minute. I was not impressed.
While reviewing possible hosts, we found Carlos. He was highly rated with several repeat guests, so we gave him a shot. What a mistake.
We initially made the reservation from Wednesday night until Sunday afternoon, Carlos attempted to pick up the dog on Tuesday night, which was strange and didn’t give a great feeling but we worked it out so I was able to drop the dog off on Wednesday at noon. I wanted to know where my dog was staying, which I think any owner would want.
When I arrived (30 miles from my house) he was running late due to a doctor’s appointment. When he finally showed up about 20 minutes late he took my dog inside and said everything would be fine. He was in a hurry, did not try to put my mind at ease. I did not get to see inside, but there was a lot of barking coming from his house which again made uneasy. I managed to ask if he would send me daily updates and pictures when I was there and he was happy to oblige.
I dropped my dog off on Wednesday afternoon, I did not hear anything from Carlos until Thursday night at 10:30 at night (3 hours after I initiated a conversation with him to ask how she was doing). He said she was doing fine, and gave no other update or pictures. The next time I heard from Carlos, I messaged him on Saturday afternoon, and his response was “she is fine, she is sleeping”. There is more to this story, but I am limited on characters. Never again.
Asher had a great time and came home tired ??. Carlos was great, and he even came and picked up Asher in the morning.
Lucy had a great time at Carlos' home. There were several other dogs there, which is something that Lucy enjoys. At home, Lucy is an only dog, so this was a true vacay for her. Carlos doesn't send tons of pictures throughout the weekend, but this isn't something I'm looking for. If you message him, he responds quickly. He's also flexible about drop-off and pickup, which is nice with DC traffic! We will certainly try to book with Carlos in the future.
Our dog seems to be having a great time in Doggy Daycare with Carlos. He looks forward to seeing Carlos in the morning and comes back very happy in the evening. We have decided to use daycare with Carlos twice a week for our dog.
Echo was very happy to go back to Carlos and had a great stay. he came back happy and healthy. we will certainly use Carlos' services again.
Poor choice at time of need. Incessant barking but other dogs were not seen anywhere. Neither wasCarlos who claimed his brother would care for our pups.
Carlos is very friendly and accomodating both for my Dog and me. He is extremely friendly and a great person to work with. We always think of Carlos whenever we have to find a place for our dog.
Echo had a great stay at Carlos'! He came back happy and looking great. It looks like he made quite a few friends! Carlos sent us regular photo updates, all communication was straightforward and easy. Thank you, Carlos, for taking great care of our dog!
Our puppy Winnie had a great stay! This was our first time using Carlos, but not our last! He was wonderful, sent us pictures everyday, and obviously gave Winnie tons of attention as she was actually sad to go home! We would highly recommend him!!
My puppy seems to enjoy her daycare stay.
I brought my pom to Carlos who gave a great first impression. He was very catering to the needs of my fur baby and treated him as if he were his own! Carlos was was quick to respond with any concerns/questions and even sent updates with pics. I strongly recommend Carlos!
Carlos was fantastic and very responsible. He checked in on my three pups twice over the weekend. I received photos and messages and would not hesitate to book with him again.
This was our first time leaving Kaycee for more than a day with anyone except neighbors or family checking in on her at our home. To say the least we were nervous for her and our 3 boys cried at the idea that something might happen while we were away. I couldn't be happier with how Carlos treated our girl and the bonus was having Addie and Tito as new friends! Carlos was amazingly accommodating and was so easy to communicate with. The pictures he sent me of Kaycee running with Tito and Addie in the backyard put our minds at ease! Thank you for everything Carlos!
Carlos was there when I needed someone on a holiday weekend which was beginning to feel like a losing battle. He gave me a reasonable rate.

I liked that he had his own fenced hard and two of his own dogs for my puppy to socialize with.

There was also someone home during the day. He sent my dog home smelling great.

I recommend him. I got regular photos as well.
Carlos was great. Sent pics every couple days. Dogs came back clean which I was worried about and they seemed to have enjoyed their time there. Now its time to catch up on some zzzzz's for them.
Great stay as usual! Thank you Carlos!
Carlos was a wonderful host to Rocky!
This was our first time leaving our German Shepherd for so long (1 week) and also our first time using DogVacay. We were concerned about the length of his stay, as well as it not being an easy breed to handle and deal with. However, it was a wonderful experience! Carlos was extremely kind to Rocky. He has a very nice, quaint house with a large back yard. Rocky and Carlos' dogs got along well, and he had a fun time running and playing with them. Carlos eased a lot of our fears/reservations by sending us daily photos and videos of Rocky having a great time. All in all, 5 star experience. Very highly recommended!
Carlos is great with dogs and is a very nice person. We are confident that Dusty is well taken care of while we are way. Very happy with Carlos!
My dog stayed with Carlos for 2 nights. Carlos clearly loves dogs, seemed very nice and was very accommodating about when I should pick up my dog. I gave him 4 out of 5 stars because my dog's stay was very short. I would definitely let my dog stay with Carlos again so I have the chance to award him 5 stars.
Carlos was wonderful and we could not be more relieved to have left our pup with such a caring host! Carlos was quick to communicate and very nice to welcome our 6 month old lab, Sven, into his home on short notice. Sven had such a terrific time and Carlos was so thoughtful to send us many pictures and videos of Sven's stay, while my husband and I were away. We had a long drive, and it helped that Sven came home happy and tired from playing with Tito and Addie. Thank you so much, Carlos!
Very happy with Carlos!
Great stay and nice haircut. Thank you, Carlos!
Sox loves being with Carlos and his pups and I always feel so comfortable leaving her with him. The photos he sends during her stay are wonderful.
Great as usual! Thanks, Carlos.
Carlos has a great house for my older dog who often has musculoskeletal problems; there are very few stairs for her to navigate, and he has a nice fenced in back yard.

She has visited Carlos three times and she always comes home happy and healthy.
Left my 3-legged son, Luke, with Carlos for 24 hrs. Dropped off in the evening and pick him up the following evening. Carlos did a great job taking care of Luke. Received a couple of photos the next day as well, which provided me some reassurance all was well. Very convenient location in Rockville, MD and will definitely use Carlos again.
Karbo played with other dogs about 16 hours of each day, so when I picked him up he was even leaner with more muscle mass than two weeks earlier. There is a lot of love for dogs, so I would recommend Carlos to anyone.
Sox loves being with Carlos and his pups. She comes home happy and tired. I have complete peace of mind while I'm away because I know how well she's being cared for.
Great as usual!
Sox loved being with Carlos and his pups. She was loved and treated like a member of his family. Carlos is a great dog host and a wonderful person.
As always Carlos did an excellent job !
Again very happy with Carlos! Great host! Great Birthday party for Dusty and a lot of pictures! Thank you very much Carlos! Veronika.
Our dog, Carli, spent her first Dog Vacay with Carlos. It was wonderful to receive photos regularly of her while we were away. Carlos' calm demeanor reassured us that Carli was in good hands. We appreciated the opportunity for Carli to spend time with other friendly dogs. We will definitely bring Carli back to Carlos' in the future.
Carlos took amazing care of Mackenzie! She takes alot of medication with her meals and he never batted an eyelash!! Our stay was a very last minute arrangement and I felt supported and informed the whole time I was gone. He sent loads of pictures and even a lovely Thank you note for having Mackenzie stay with him. I will definitely send Mackenzie back to visit with Carlos and his darling dogs!
Carlos was very sweet with our little chihuahua. Our little guy was very nervous being dropped off for the first time, but I think they did a great job taking care of him.
Carlos was amazing ! Not only he was a great host but he was very personal with us. He really understands the love that one can have for a dog and he definitely make sure your dog keeps receiving that love when you are away.

I can't thank Carlos enough for making our time away for our dog worry-free.
Carlos is not only great with dogs, he's a warm, compassionate person. I love the pictures and videos he sent showing me how wonderfully my dog Sox fit into his household. Sox is definitely happy, relaxed and part of his pack.
Carlos and the other dogs were excellent hosts. I received pictures each day (made me sad I wasn't there, of course), and Karbo (my oversized lab, built like a Rottweiler) fit right in. When I came to pick him up all the little dogs swarmed all over him as if to say, "Why go, we were having so much fun?"

Carlos was a terrific handler, and I could tell Karbo was treated like family. Thanks!!
Another great stay and lovely haircut for Dusty. Thanks Carlos!
As always very happy with Carlos! Dusty can't wait to see his friends.
Carlos is an amazing host! He was also incredibly wonderful and flexible with his availability when we had to go out of town urgently on a family matter. He always sends us pictures and videos of our baby. We always feel safe leaving Dallas in his care, and we know that he always has a great time and feels at home with Carlos. We would recommend Carlos 100% to any one looking for a dog sitter. I know Dallas can't wait until the next time he stays with Carlos, Addie, and Tito.
Once again was very pleased with care Carlos took of Dusty while I was away. Our dog is happy and relaxed and misses his furry friends. Thanks Carlos!
Carlos was great with our dogs! I felt so comfortable knowing they were being well taken care of. Carlos was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. He also sent me pictures and videos while we were gone which was wonderful!

We will definitely be using Carlos again!
We are very happy with our dog's stay with Carlos. The best host ever! Dusty misses his new friends and will be back soon.
She seems to have had a good time. She was exhausted when she came home, so I'm thinking she played hard every day. It was especially nice to receive candies and thank you note from Carlos. He called to see how Lexie was since he wasn't there when we picked her up.
Carlos has a great set up. His home is very clean and well organized including a separate and cozy room for dogs. He has a nice sized yard and he takes the dogs for walks several times during the day. He was very accommodating especially regarding drop off and pick up times. He also offered to drive my dog home when I returned. He was responsive to my texts and sent lots of pics. He has 2 cute schnauzers, Addie and Tito.
Carlos has a calm and easy demeanor with dogs. It is apparent his dogs Tito and Addie are extremely well cared for. My Augie liked him immediately. Carlos and his family provide a very dog friendly environment complete with fenced yard and someone always in the house with the dogs. He sends daily photo updates and answered my neurotic texts the first day. I felt very confident Augie had lots of attention. When he was dropped at our house after a four day stay he was clearly very fond of his new human. We will be making a reservation for him to stay with Carlos in May. Strongly recommend!!!
Carlos is our neighbor, and we've been able to see firsthand how much they care about their dogs. In addition, our dog, Sienna, enjoys playing with their dogs and has been welcomed at their house.

So when it came time for us to find someone to care for Sienna when we were out of town, it was a no brainer. We had great peace-of-mind, and they sent us many updates and pictures to show what a good time Sienna was having.

We arrived later than expected from our trip, and Carlos was very accomodating to our schedule.

We will be using him again when Sienna needs her own Vacay.
Carlos was a great host again for my dog. I know my dog is in great hands. Thanks, Carlos!
Carlos did an excellent job and his house was a great environment for Hally & Shelby. He took pictures for me throughout the week and I know they had a great time getting walks, attention and having a yard and other dogs to play with. When I picked them up they were clean, happy and relaxed :)

I will definitely be booking with Carlos next time I'm out of town.
Carlos was great. He was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. He kept us updated with pics and videos. Our dog was happy when we picked her up. We will definitely use Carlos' service again.
We highly recommend Carlos as a DogVacay host! Carlos was amazing with Dallas, he sent us pictures and videos every day. We could definitely tell Dallas was having a wonderful time not only with Carlos but his two dogs Tito and Addie. Next time we are out of town and we can't take Dallas with us we will not hesitate to leave him under Carlos' care again. In fact, Dallas had such a great time that after he came home we could tell he missed playing with Tito and Addie, and that is even more evidence that Dallas had a wonderful time and was well taken care of :)
Carlos not only treats dogs he cares for like his own, he treats them like family.
Carlos was a great host for my minature poodle---a last minute reservation at that. The meet and greet put us both at ease. There was a very large back yard for the dogs to explore and no crating at night (a must for our dog). An unexpected surprise was that Carlos picked my dog up from my house which saved me a trip while preparing for my trip. He sent pictures several times during the stay which was much appreciated by me and my family. When we returned, Carlos brought my dog back to my home sice he was going to be in the area---another unexpected bonus. A great experience and one we will repeat when needed.
Carlos was very helpful in accommodating our last minute booking. Marley and Zoey came back happy and healthy. Thanks Carlos!
It was the second stay of our Sky with Carlos. He provided an excellent service as usual. He sent us pictures of Sky stay almost every day. He is very nice and gentle in dealing with dogs. We certainly recommend Carlos for everybody.
Excellent visit! Lily had a great time!
We were extremely satisfied with Carlos sitting our Sky during our travel to Europe for more than three weeks. He was instrumental in providing us with daily updates and very frequent photos. We believe that our Sky felt there as at home. Carlos even provided Sky regularly with medication to heal her injured paw. We certainly recommend Carlos to other dog owners and we will use him in future when a need for care of Sky arise.

Carlos and his family were wonderful hosts to my mini-Schnauzer Lily. She had a grand time hanging out with the other Schnauzers, and Carlos linked me into the fun with daily updates and pictures. Lily is heading back again this week for another vacay!
