About betsy

We love dogs! I believe exercise is the key to a happy "guest" dog and I can guarantee that your dog will be very happy and content here. We will become his "home away from home!" We are located in a remote, woodsy larea,. I offer leash walks daily through the path in the woods to the meadow and creek below the house. We also have constant adult companionship/supervision whenever "guest" dogs are here, and we never leave them alone.. We give long periods of loving, playing, cuddling times, too, with all our "guest" dogs. We only take 3 "guests" maximum so your dog is assured complete attention. All our "guest" dogs love it here and are always happy to come back! Their owners are fully satisfied and happy, too. I hope we can meet you and your dog soon.

Betsy and her husband were the most fantastic of sitters!
Their home is well set up and they are obviously very experienced and caring- even going so far as having temporary collar ids for the dogs they sit!

I would absolutely to recommend them and hope to use them again.

Betsy and Dan took excellent care of my two dogs. This is the first time I left them alone for an entire week and I was a bit worried. Betsy sent me an email and a picture the first night and it really put my mind at ease. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that our dogs were in great care! I highly recommend Betsy and Dan! Thank you again.

We were very happy with our experience with Betsy and will definitely use her again. Betsy sent us pictures of our dogs while we were away and we could tell that they were very relaxed and comfortable with her. She also made us feel very comfortable with her caring attitude and we were able to enjoy our time away with no worries. Betsy had many favorable reviews, which was the reason I chose her and I didn't go wrong with that decision. I highly recommend her to take care of your 4 legged family members!

Chester's stay with Betsy and Dan was very successful. This was the first time he was away from us overnight, but Betsy made us feel comfortable leaving him. She was very clear on what we could expect as well as her expectations from us. He was cared for as if he was their own. I will recommend them to anyone who needs an overnight sitter. Thanks so much for taking such good care of our fur-baby.

I don't even know where to begin.....Betsy is the "best" dog sitter ever!!!!! We had never left our fur baby with anyone other than our own family; however, they have all moved out of state. We were headed out west for over a week and were literally panicking....until we met Betsy! We conversed a number of times at the beginning and then did our meet n greet. It was a "no-brainer!" We knew in our hearts, she was the one. Well, she didn't disappoint us one bit. She went over and beyond all our expectations! She updated us every other day with very detailed emails and pictures of our fur baby. We never once worried about our Chase. We will forever be using Betsy in the future!!!! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, Betsy, you are the best!

This was the first time we left our babies with someone other than family and I can say without hesitation that this was the best decision we have made.
Betsy and Dan were wonderful with our dogs and our dogs were very happy with them. They treated them as if they were their own pets. They sent us pictures of them during their activities which mad us see that our babies were really happy.
I will definitely use Betsy again.

Tetley & Tiddly Bit love to visit and stay at Betsy's.
If you want your beloved doggie to have an enjoyable "vacation" while you are away on business or pleasure, then look no further than Betsy and Dan's dog friendly home and property! We have used them for several years and have been 100% satisfied every time! It is a great comfort to us to know that our "baby girll" is well cared for while we are away. Additionally, we love the photos and email updates!

Betsy,

Thank you so much for your contribution to our wonderful vacation by taking care of our little Emma. Emma enjoys the time she spends with you and loves the care and affection you and Dan shower upon her. We love the knowledge that she could not be in better hands, and we enjoy the pictures and email stories you provide keeping us in touch with how Emma is doing. There are no words to adequately thank you for your care and dedication, it simply means the world to us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!

All the best,
Kate

Betsy did a great job taking care of both my dogs. She kept us updated with emails and pictures, so we could see how much fun they were having!

The dogs returned home happy and tired - just like we did! They got lots of attention, exercise and TLC!

Betsy and Dan took such good care of our Catcher. They truly are the sweetest people. Betsy kept us updated with emails and pictures which we always looked forward to getting. We felt at peace on our trip knowing that Catcher was in such good hands.

Our Rudy had a great time with Betsy! She provided a very tranquil and nurturing environment for 1-1/2 year old puppy! He had plenty of outdoor fun and found his favorite chair to sleep in. Rudy has never been very comfortable with men, but Dan tried very hard to break the ice and made great progress!! Our experience with Betsy and Dan was wonderful and we take great comfort in knowing that Rudy will be safe, nurtured, and happy with them on our next vacation!

We LOVE Betsy!!! Our dog Colgate had a terrible experience at a traditional Kennel so we tried Betsy a few years ago and have only used her since. She takes amazing care of our "little girl" and we totally trust her which makes our vacation as relaxing as possible. Colgate is happy there and is never scared or apprehensive when we drop her off. Betsy sends emails and photos while we are gone which are so awesome and really help when we start missing our 4 legged family member. :) They exercise the dogs every day and take them on long walks in the woods. It's like a vacation for our dog. I can't recommend her enough. She is awesome awesome awesome!!!!

This was our first time using Besty and we couldn't be happier. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that our dog was in great hands. It is obvious that Betsy and her husband enjoy taking care of dogs and have a wealth of experience. I highly recommend Betsy to someone looking for loving care of their dog(s) in a home environment.

We used to board our dog at a general dog boarding place when we went on vacation, but I would worry about her and not be able to enjoy our vacation. Our dog will be going to Betsy's house again when we go on our next vacation! So thrilled we found her!

We could not have been happier with Betsy and Dan. It was our 30th anniversary and we had never left our 2 Boxers with anyone other than our children. Since our children were coming on this trip with us, I had to find someone I trusted. I love that we were able to go and meet Betsy and Dan with the dogs well before our vacation to see how they interacted with our dogs. During our Jamaica trip, we got updates every other day with pictures. It put us at ease knowing they were adjusting well and enjoying their "vacation" as well. I highly recommend Betsy and Dan and will definitely use them again. Now to get my husband to plan our next trip!!!!

This is my second stay with Betsy G. This time, Hobbes was getting over some unresolved medical issues. She took such good care of him!!! The pictures she sends reflect her care and affection for our elderly little guy. He's happy and snoozy and snuggly when I pick him up.

What a wonderful experience for us and both of our dachshunds'. Our dogs received all of the comforts and caring of being at home and we had the peace of mind that they were safe and happy. We had taken our 2 dogs to visit and check out the home prior to leaving them there and they immediately made themselves at home and were in no hurry to leave when the visit was over. While on their doggy vacay they received individual attention, made friends with the other dogs that were staying the weekend and were genuinely part of the family. We have already booked their next stay with Betsy and are looking forward to our trip knowing that Tetley and Tiddly Bit are not only safe and well looked after but will enjoy themselves. Thank you Betsy for taking care of our little ones with such love.

This was the first time we used DogVacay and our experience exceeded our expectations. We appreciated receiving emails and pictures of our dog throughout her stay. When we returned home she was happy and we would definitely do this again.
Our dog Roland has stayed with Betsy several times now and I have always had a fantastic experience. I know Roland is in good hands when he stays with them. I highly recommend - 5 star rating!!
Penny had the most fabulous time at Betsy's home over the Memorial Day weekend. She made new doggie friends and enjoyed walks with Betsy and the pack. Penny has a lot of energy which might deter other dog sitters but Betsy managed her just fine. Penny is looking forward to her next stay in August and I can go on vacation knowing she will be well taken care of.

Betsy was great! She was caring and kept us updated with how Jewel was doing with pictures and emails, so we knew our baby was taken care of well. Jewel came home tired from all the play time she received. Looking forward to using her again!
Betsy and Dan are the best doggy hosts ever! I may just book Opie so she can run and play with other dogs! They understand dogs completely and make the environment perfect for all sizes and types of dogs. Thanks again, Sara
We love having Betsy take care of Lucky when we are away! She takes such great care of her and there is no doubt that Lucky loves her sleep overs. I can leave Lucky knowing that she is in the most awesome care.
Our dog had a great time. She's signed up for next month too. They took good care of our girl.
Betsy was awesome!!! We took our first vacation as dog-owners last week (our pup, Champ, is 11 mos old and we are 1st time dog owners). We didn't know what to expect in regards to a dog sitter (how to find one, fair price, what kind of care to expect, etc), so I toured kennels and did some online research. A couple of kennels came highly recommended from friends, neighbors, and my vet, but I didn't like the fact that Champ would be alone in his crate overnight. I wanted a little more one-on-one for Champ. I was also concerned about kennel cough and the chaos of a full kennel... and how he would react to his surroundings (Champ was rescued at 3 months old, so I was afraid a kennel surrounding would frighten him or feel too much like the shelter.

After extensive research, I decided DogVacay (and sitting at the caretaker's home) would be the way to go. I narrowed down my selection to Betsy for 3 top reasons:
1. Someone is home 24/7.
2. She had over 100 positive reviews.
3. She had over 60 repeat customers.

I KNOW I made the right choice for our puppy care. Betsy and her husband provided excellent care for Champ. We received an email at least every other day with pictures and a little update on how he was doing, the (doggie) friends he made at her home, the adventures/walks he went on, etc. We looked forward to our "Champ emails" and loved hearing about his adventures. A+++ for Betsy!!

Betsy is wonderful! It was our first time with her and will certainly not be our last. She made our dog feel so loved and cared for and we were able to enjoy our vacation for 8 nights!
Betsy was great, very prompt in response. Meet and greet friendly and informative for both client and host.. Competent Lucille seemed happy and relaxed both when we dropped her off and picked her up. We have booked again
Betsy always takes great care of Louie, sends lots of pictures and keeps him under close supervision.
Betsy was a great hostess to my quirky 13 year old Cavalier. She responded quickly to my questions, and seemed wholly dedicated to his overall well-being. Loved those pictures!!
I can not say enough good about my experience with Betsy and her husband. They are no doubt dog lovers! They seemed to enjoy having my dog stay with them as much as my dog enjoyed being with them. They sent the cutest pics of my dog having a great time and I know she had a great time because she slept for 2 days when she came home. I would recommend Betsy 100%!

Betsy and Dan provided Sam, our 14 year old Springer Spaniel, with a loving environment. Sam enjoyed our meet and greet and Betsy and Dan made me very comfortable leaving Sam for a stay. Their compassion for the dogs in their care was very obvious. They sometimes keep a few dogs at a time and were very careful to get to know Sam and with matching Sam with a new friend for his weekend stay.

There was great communication before and during Sam's visit. It was a short weekend trip and Betsy sent me photos that made me smile while I was missing Sam. The home is on a very peaceful dead end street and has a really large deck for the dogs to go out on when they aren't playing or going for a long walk.

Sam did not seem to miss a beat not being at home. I think he had fun and felt right at home. Many, many thanks Betsy and Dan !!

We will diffidently utilized Betsy and Dan for pet setting services again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend them to others looking for a great place for their pets to stay.

Betsy and Dan are wonderful! Our dog, Catcher, was so well taken care of. We always have a hard time leaving Catcher but Betsy kept us updated with how he was doing and pictures of him with his new friends. They truly love dogs and are such kind people.

Zeke had another awesome stay with Betsy & Dan! They are both great.. I feel so good about leaving him in their care. I get nice updates with pictures of Zeke playing with the other guests. They are wonderful dog sitters.. I would highly recommend them.

It was great leaving my dog for the weekend at Betsy & Dan's home! Scotch had a great time with the other dogs and loved the walks with Betsy to the creek. Overall I would definitely would recommend Betsy to anyone wanting to leave their pet in her care!

5 stars are not enough! Betsy and Dan were wonderful. This was the first time my dog stayed with them and from the minute I dropped him off he was happy to go. Betsy sent me great pictures and updates almost every day. When I picked he up he didn't seem all that excited to see me. I can't say enough good things about the care that Bruno received with with Betsy and Dan!

Betsy & Dan are the best! Sampson & Emmi enjoyed their stay with them and we were able to go away with peace of mind knowing they were in very loving (and dog savvy) hands. Loved the daily updates and pictures we received, too! We recommend Betsy & Dan highly and wouldn't hesitate to enlist their dog sitting services again!

Another wonderful experience for our pups, Betsy and Dan take such good care of them and also of us by sending gorgeous photos throughout our whole time away. Couldn't be happier having found them !!! Lois
Bubs had a great time with Betsy and Dan. He enjoyed his frequent walks. The picture Betsy sent of him with another furry guest belted and seated in the back seat all excited to go to the park was so cute. It is such a relief to know he has lots of experienced TLC while I'm away. Can't say enough good things about his and my experience with them.

Extremely happy with Betsy! Both "Keever" and I loved them. Truly a dog lover. Betsy sent great pictures of Keever enjoying his stay. I can recommend Betsy without any reservations. Thank you Betsy!
Once again Brodie was given the best care by Betsy and Dan. He is an older dog and they make sure he is comfortable during his stay with them. They were very accommodating to us also when we increased the boarding time shortly before we left on vacation. As always, the pictures and updates let us know that he was happy being a part of their family. Thank you again Betsy and Dan!

Betsy and Dan are awesome people. They have a special connection with dogs that is very special. It makes it much easier to leave our dog knowing he will have excellent care and have playmates as well.
Thank you so much Betsy and Dan.

Our experience with Betsy and Dan was truly wonderful from start to finish.
From the informative meet n greet to our pups first stay this weekend.
Betsy and Dan manage to combine a great knowledge of dogs and "pack" life, along with sensitivity and compassion for us humans that were leaving their pups in unfamiliar surroundings and feeling kind of sad and anxious.
We received fabulous photos that showed Archie & Kenzie having a brilliant time on the trail and in the creek, and sitting, evidently stress free, on a chair in the living room.
On picking them up today they were relaxed and happy, no signs of stress or anxiety, just very tired from their fun filled weekend.
I am thrilled to have come across DogVacay and then found Betsy and Dan !
Thank you !!

Betsy and Dan are the nicest and most likeable folks, both to other people and to dogs! Our Remi has stayed with them several times, and has been treated very, very well with regular walks in the nearby woods with splashes in the creek, good pack leadership and management, and even a trip to an outdoor concert this time around! We know, because Betsy keeps us updated with great pics while we were gone. Remi loves them, and with good reason--they are fantastic! We will definitely continue to use them in the future, and we recommend you do, too!

Great experience with Betsy for our Molly. We received updates and pictures and knew that Molly was happy and well loved. We will definitely reserve again!! Thank you for everything.
I have written multiple reviews so will be brief here. Betsy and Dan provide the ideal home away from home for pets of anxious owners. They were very busy the week we inquired about but they made accommodations to help us. They took great care of our golden retriever and we had an amazing trip all through Europe. We wouldn't want Roxy anywhere else! Thanks, Betsy and Dan!!

Betsy and Dan were wonderful hosts as always. They made sure Brodie was comfortable and provided excellent care and updates. Thank you again!
Fabulous stay as always! Opie is a new doggie at Betsy's house! She enjoys the other dogs and loves being "in charge" . I love Betsy's pictures and commentaries!
My dogs love staying with Betsy! We get photo updates every few days and best of all they come home exhausted! Thanks again!
We recently had our two dogs spend a week with Betsy and her husband. They have never been boarded and we wanted them to be in an "at home" atmosphere. WOW - did we hit the jackpot! We could not have been happier with our arrangements. They were treated and cared for just as if we were with them. Although our dogs were happy to see us, I don't think they were in any hurry to leave! We also received regular updates with many pictures every other day. We will absolutely use Betsy and Dan when we need a pet sitter - can't say enough about this couple - Many, many thanks!!

Betsy and Dan are awesome people. They truly have a connection with dogs. The atmosphere in their home is peaceful which of course the dogs taps into making their visit very enjoyable. Our dog Bentley was making his first visit. He was very mopey when he got home. From the pictures they posted he was very happy and wanted to go back.
I can't say enough about our experience with Betsy and Dan-wonderful people

Betsy and her husband are wonderful! This is Duke's second visit, and he has grown to love these people as his own. Their kindness and caring, and willingness to go the extra mile is such a part of who they are.
Duke gets nervous, and at times will have an upset tummy, Betsy's husband was kind enough to take good care of him and make him rice. How wonderful is that?! It's so assuring to know that when we have to go away, Duke has a home away from home to go to. Thank you, both! Peggy

Betsy and Dan are the best. By looking at the pictures Betsy sent me Charley had a great time. He will be going on vacation there again. Great people.
Betsy and Dan were wonderful with our boys while we were away. We got updates on them with pics!! I think they had just as much fun as we did!! Never boarding our dogs at a kennel again!!
As always, Betsy and Dan took good care of Opie! Her emails and pictures were stupendous and so funny. I know Opie had a ball and was well cared for. I am so glad I found Betsy on Dog Vacay.
Betsy did a fantastic job! This was the first time we did not use a kennel and will be using this service and Betsy moving forward. Betsy kept us informed by sending us pictures and quick updates every few days which was above and beyond what we expected. We knew our family member / dog was in very good hands and did not have to worry throughout our vacation.

Betsy and her husband are wonderful! Duke was well cared for and loved his time with his "pack" while we were away. Betsy knew that I was concerned to leave him in a new environment, so she sent me several emails while we were away, assuring me that Duke was having a wonderful time and was settling into his "home away from home". I will use her again, and would highly recommend her to my friends.

I'd recommend Betsy to anyone--she's attentive, kind, and she handles dogs in an equally loving and professional manner! My Remi had a BLAST, as always. It's absolutely priceless to be able to leave Remi without a smidge of concern when we go out of town. We'll be back, and we recommend you try Betsy out, too!

Betsy and Dan are fantastic! They took great care of our super energetic puppy Maggie for a week while we were on vacation. I think Maggie is still sad she's not at their house! And Betsy kept us updated with lots of pictures.
awesome....as usual. :)
Super wonderful as usual. Maija
Our dogs love going here, in fact our beagle doesn't want to leave. Great place. They take really good care of our boys
Betsy and Dan have transformed our family vacations into worry-free getaways!!! Our golden, Roxy, completely loves her "vacation" in their home with the rest of the pack that are guests there. How do we know? First, because every couple of days we receive pictures of the adventures she experiences while she's there. This time there was even a field trip to a water preserve! But mostly because when we return home Roxy runs out of the house and does a quick "halt" when she realizes our arrival means it's time to go home. The only drawback of Betsy and Dan's service is that our feelings are hurt when Roxy makes it so obvious she'd rather stay on her vacation with her new pack than come home to our "boring" house! :)

Betsy and Dan are awesome! I feel so comfortable leaving Zeke with them. Betsy sends great updates and pictures during his stay. Zeke is excited to go to their house, and nice and tired when he comes home:) I highly recommend!
I can't say enough good things about Betsy and Dan. Bear had a wonderful stay with them. They took him for long walks and field trips. He was a very happy boy and this was his home away from home!
Betsy and Dan are fantastic dog sitters! Our dog came home happy and well-walked. Betsy emailed updates with pictures. It was great knowing that Albus was being taken care of so well while we were away!
Betsy and Dan are the best! I don't want to say too much because everyone will want to go to them and there will be no room at the inn! Maija
Lulu just returned from a fun stay with Betsy! This is our second experience with DogVacay hosts and we were not disappointed. I feel so much better being away knowing that our dog is not in a crate all day. Betsy met with Lulu and me beforehand and explained everything we needed to know. While Lulu was staying with Betsy, she sent many pictures showing our dog very happy and active - going on long walks and playing with other dogs. I would highly recommend her as a host.

as usual, my dog had a great time.
A great experience all around! I was completely comfortable leaving my dog, Dakota, in Betsy's very capable hands. I was very happy with how everything was handled and the care given to Dakota. Today, I came home with a happy pup, not a depressed one! Thanks, Betsy! You are awesome!!!

We've boarded our 3 year old golden retriever in a private home before and felt good about the experience but our "Roxy's" stay with Betsy took it to a whole other level. The planning communication gave us a lot of confidence about the quality of care and Betsy sent us emails and pictures nearly every day showing that Roxy was having as great a vacation as we were! It was so terrific to see our active golden playing in the snow with her new friends from the pack. What blew us away was that even after outdoor play every day, the pictures always showed her brushed and well-groomed,
Betsy and Dan, thank you for taking such good care of Roxy during our Thanksgiving holiday. My next email is to reserve her spot with you for our vacation in February!

Betsy and Dan are fantastic hosts. Our dog loves them and we are so grateful for their services. Maria, West Chester
BEST DOG SITTER EVER!!!!!
Another wonderful visit for Opie! We call it camp when she goes to Betsy 's home. Opie gets to do adventures in the woods, play with the other dogs, and snuggle with Her hosts. Since Opie lives alone with me, she rarely gets to play with her friends so this is such a treat for her and for me ! My vacations are so much more relaxing since I know Opie is loved and cared for at Betsy's.

Thank you for being so wonderful to Opie!

Betsy and Dan are the best! Another great stay with them.
Betsy and Dan always take excellent care of Brodie. The emails and pictures let us know how he enjoys his stay with them. Thank you again!
We found ourselves in an unusual situation (non-dog-owners sitting the dog of a hospitalized friend) and, when we needed boarding services in our turn, became first-time DogVacay clients. Betsy G. was very understanding and helpful; after initial contact through the website, she was able to explain the process and reassure us in a lengthy phone conversation. Her location, suburb-tending-to-rural and near a river, is excellent for dog exercise. (We also lucked out that she's only a few streets away from us.)

Betsy and Dan made me feel so at ease while I was away. The email updates and the great pics of my Henry happily playing with the other dogs was greatly appreciated. I will definitely be bringing Henry back soon!
Always the best, never any complaints!!!
Betsy and Dan,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Emma loves to come to your place and we feel very secure in the knowledge that she is being cared for in a loving way. Emma enjoys meeting the other dogs, the terrific walks you provide, and the special care and attention you give to her. We absolutely love receiving your notes and all the pictures while we are away, they certainly put our mind at ease and bring many smiles to our faces. Thank you for providing the BEST all around experience for both Emma and for us!

Betsy and Dan are awesome hosts!!
Betsy took excellent care of our dog Riley. The pictures of Riley along the way really helped us see Riley was in good hands and treated like "one of Betsy's family" which was a great feeling. This also relaxed my wife and I,so we could enjoy our vacation. Thank you Betsy, we highly recommend your services!

It is such a relief to know Rocco is in such good hands. We received several photo updates and can easily see how much Rocco loves being with Betsy and Dan.
All good!!
Betsy and her husband are very knowledgeable and accommodating. Rocco took right away to their company and we felt assured that he was in good hands. Maria Z
As always, Betsy was a fabulous host for Opie!

I believe Opie loves being the pack leader, even with the bigger dogs. And she gets to lead the pack on their walks in the woods. It is a beautiful setting for doggie "camp" and Opie can't wait to go back.

Thank you, Betsy!

Always the best, love the pictures provided with updates. Will continue to use forever!!
What a wonderful experience my dogs had at Betsy's house. I have never felt more comfortable leaving my babies with anyone. Betsy and Dan were just wonderful with them. I received detailed emails with pictures to keep me posted on their activities which put me at ease while I was away. They even went to the creek for a swim which they don't ever get a chance to do at home!!

This was my first time using Doggie Vacay and it definitely will not be my last!!! What a positive experience it was. My dogs actually were missing Betsy and Dan and their new friend Boggs when they got home.

My little dog had a great time with Betsy. She was very caring in her attention to him and his anxiety around new dogs. He is much more confident when approached by new dogs. He was one happy and tired little Shih Tzu when I picked him up after 10 days. Loved the photos and emails she sent during his stay. I have no concerns about leaving him with her in the future and I am sure he would be happy to see her again. I wasn't so sure he wanted to leave all the fun to come home.

My Beanie had a great time at Betsy's! Betsy was great at keeping me updated on Beanie's stay. Betsy and her husband are great at making sure the dogs get plenty of exercise and attention. I have already recommended Betsy to others!
Couldn't have been better, loved the pictures and email showing the doggie adventures for the weekend. Will definitely use whenever we need a Home away from Home for our Remi!!!
I never worry when Dan & Betsy have our Rocky. He loves being with them and feels right at home there. They treat him as he is their own, and we love that. We enjoy the pictures they send to us also. Thanks again Dan & Betsy...for keeping our little guy safe and happy!!

Betsy, you are the best! Can't thank you enough for the care you provided while we were away. We'll be back!
Buster really enjoys his time with Betsy, Dan, and the other dogs...he always comes home tired!
Betsy was fantastic, I got great pictures of our dog running and playing in the back yard. Seems like she was spoiled while she was there. I would recommend Betsy and I would be happy to have my dog stay with her again.
I can't say enough about how wonderful Betsy and her husband were with my pug, Opie. AT our "meet and greet", I knew these were Real Dog people! Love at first Bark! Opie loved being with the other dogs and adjusted well in a short period of time. Betsy's emails and pictures showed what a great time all the dogs were having-walking running, playing and Sleeping! I looked forward to her emails and felt so blessed that Opie was so well taken care of. It is the first time I have been relaxed on vacation while leaving her with someone. Really.
I may have to go away sooner, so Opie can go to "Camp" again!

Thank you Betsy!

Betsy and Dan are truly amazing! Our dog previously had bloat surgery and is pretty high maintenance now as a result. Nevertheless, Betsy and Dan are very conscientious of her dietary needs and go well out of their way to make sure she is taken care of and comfortable while away from home! We couldn't ask for a better sitter!

Betsy and Dan are the best! I would not place my little girl with anyone else. They truly love the pets they care for. Getting pictures and updates really eases your mind about how they are doing. Thanks again!!
First time stay for our Roxy with Betsy and worked out great. Betsy treated Roxy as her own and welcomed into her family. Regular emails and pictures keep us up to date and helped us relax on our vacation. Highly recommend Betsy and will have Roxy stay with her again!

As always, Betsy and Dan took great care of our Lacy while we were away. My wife and I both commented that we feel very comfortable and secure leaving Lacy in their hands. While we were away they sent us periodic emails with pictures and gave us an update on how Lacy was doing on her "vacation" with them.
Thanks again Betsy and Dan. You are the best!

Definitely an excellent overall experience for our Newfies. We were lucky enough to make a last minute reservation with her due to some problems with another host and it could not have been better. The perfect host and environment for dogs like ours.... even the perfect playmates.... Hopefully this was just the beginning of an ongoing relationship. Thanks for taking such good care of Colores and Polo

This has been the best experience for both our little dog and for us. Gunny had such a good time and Betsy sent pictures of him to us while we were on vacation. We could see how much he enjoyed their company and the other dogs. It made our vacation all the more enjoyable because I could see how well adjusted he was in their home! They are truly caring people who have an unequaled way of making a warm, inviting environment for the dogs they host. Very pleased and will definitely use them again!

A great host. Our fog is always happy to go there and hang out with his friends. Highly recommended.
Once again, another excellent stay for Rocco with Betsy and Dan. Absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much for taking such excellent care of Emma!She always enjoys her visits with you. Your emails and pictures always make us feel so comfortable and at ease while we are away. There is absolutely nothing better than leaving for vacation with the secure feeling and knowledge that your beloved pet is in the most loving and capable hands. Betsy and Dan, you are truly the best! Thanks again for all you do for Emma and for us. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!.

Our dog Sandy loves to stay with Betsy and Dan! She seems to have a great time with the other dogs (as evidenced by all the pictures they email to us) and she is exhausted when she comes home from all the play time and walks. We feel very comfortable leaving our dog with them and we're very happy to have found them!

Wonderful as always! Betsy sent wonderful pictures and updates that truly showed my dogs on vacation. An unexpected snowstorm kept us from arriving at our scheduled pick up time. Betsy was incredibly generous and understanding, allowing me to pick up the following morning.
Thanks again Betsy! See you soon!

Betsy and Dan have the best set up! It's a doggie paradise. They are one of the reasons we decided to be a host. I refer many people to them! The certainly provide the "vacay" part of a stay!
Our Rocky loves to go see Dan & Betsy. He's on one big vacation too! He loves his walks & playtime with all the other doggies. I feel so comfortable leaving him with them as he comes home happy & healthy....and we love the updates of pictures & messages we receive while away. It sure is comforting knowing he is in good care. Thanks a bunch!

We left Tuna (our 8 year old dachshund) for 18 days. We received lots of emails and pictures from their day to day activities. We felt great seeing how Tuna was runnig and playing with her new friends. We are sure she had a great time and wouldn't hesitate about leaving her under Betsy's care again. It was a fantastic experience!

Betsy is amazing! She kept us informed while we were away and sent us pictures of our little ones running around. We could tell how happy the dogs were and knew they were taken care of. Highly recommended. Think of Betsy as the home away from home for the little ones :)

My furry kids love going to Betsy's house, and I love knowing that they are well cared for.
Buster had tons of fun at Betsy's. The outdoor deck is a nice space for the dogs to hang out and play, and she takes them for regular walks.
Betsy and her husband took awesome care of our pup, who came back happy and tired! Definitely recommend. Thanks so much!
Thank you very much for making our trip even more memorable for us and a special one for little Emma! Betsy and Dan could not have been more loving and wonderful to our special needs little girl while we were away. Between the pictures and the emails that they sent to us we were completely at ease knowing that Emma was in good hands and enjoying herself as much as we were on our trip. I highly recommend Betsy and Dan to anyone who loves their pup and while away wants them to be taken care of with the utmost care and affecton. Thank you so much for doing just that for Emma!

Great people. I think my dog is disappointed when she has to come back home.
My furry kids had a great time with Betsy. There were a couple of other big dogs like them, so they were worn out when they came home. She sent pictures and let me know how everything was going during their stay. I'm so glad to have found her!
I am always pleased with the care my dog receives when he stays with Betsy and Dan. I have a dog with special needs which are taken care of per instruction. Betsy and Dan have a safe and stimulating environment so my dog enjoys his stays with them.
Betsy and Dan took excellent care of Brodie as always!
Betsy and Dan are wonderful dog people! I trust them implicitly with our precious Lab and this is our second long term stay with them. Could go on and on, but you get the idea! Maija R
Ellie had the best time ever staying with Betsy! I truly believe she would rather live there with all the friends she made throughout the week. She came home completely exhausted and a week later is just getting all her energy back.
Betsy emailed us 4 different times with pictures and kept us at ease so we could enjoy our honeymoon knowing Ellie was in wonderful hands!

Suzy-Q my sweet, loveable, pampered, 15 year old dog had a great vacation with Betsy. She enjoyed her break from mom and the new surroundings gave her new life. She had a great time with other dogs but was still happy to return to her more sedate life. She has never been boarded before in her 15 years and I know a kennel would have not been satisfactory for her. I wish there were more DogVacay sites across the country. There were none in the area where I live in Lillian, AL (near Pensacola, FL). so I consider my self lucky to have found someone to care for Suzy-Q while traveling back east.

Rex had an amazing time on his vacation! We were also able to enjoy our vacation because we knew he was in good hands. Betsy is amazing and provided updates and pictures during his stay.
Betsy and Dan did a wonderful job taking care of our dog JB. As a recently adopted shelter dog, it took JB a couple days to adjust but Betsy and Dan were very patient with him and were able to gain his trust. From the pictures Betsy sent, it was obvious JB had lots of fun during his week-long stay - plenty of walks and playing in the water. We highly recommend Betsy and Dan!

Again, Betsy and Dan made our Rocky feel right at home. He always has a good time with them, and comes home a very happy little guy. They treat him like he's their own....we were a little disappointed when he didn't even run and greet us when we arrived to pick him up...that's how "at home" Rocky feels staying with them. They are the best petsitters we've ever had!

This was Lacy's second visit to Betsy and Dan's home. We had arranged for them to host Lacy while we were on our honeymoon, which was 9 nights. From the photos we received it looked like our Lacy was having fun at summer camp with several other dogs in Betsy and Dan's care. We have complete confidence in the love and care Betsy and Dan provide to Lacy. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND them and will use them again in the future. Thanks again Betsy and Dan for taking great care of Lacy!

I was impressed when I first did the meet/greet and even more so now that my dog stayed with them for over two weeks. They are warm, caring people and give wonderful updates with photos. We'll keep going there as long as they'll have us!
I don't worry anymore about leaving our Rocky to go away. He loves his "home away from home" with Dan & Betsy. He also enjoys playtime with the other doggies! Thanks again Dan & Betsy for the wonderful care of our little boy!!
As usual, Betsy took excellent care of Brodie!
Wonderful B&B for our two dogs...setting is like being in a tree house and the dogs are as welcome as their owners. Thank you for your hospitality.
This is the third time our dogs have enjoyed staying with Betsy and Dan. We have a large, rambunctious, energetic 7 month old pup and a small, cuddly dog.
Betsy and Dan lavish them with the individual attention that each of them crave. They have a great time and we never worry about leaving them. We enjoy receiving emails with the pictures of our precious pups having a great time on their romps in the woods and playing with other "campers." We plan on using Betsy and Dan every time we travel.

Can't thank Betsy and Dan enough for our "Rocky's" 1st experience with them. They treated him like he was their own, and he was so at home with them. Betsy sent us pictures and emailed us showing him playing with the other doggies and just having a great time.
Having a prior bad experience with Rocky in a kennel, he will never be going back to one!! Rocky will definitely be going back to Betsy & Dan's. I feel so thankful I found dog vacay and "Betsy & Dan"! PS. When we arrived home to pick Rocky up, I wasn't sure he wanted to go home!!?? That's how "at home" he was at Betsy & Dan's!
Thank you again Betsy & Dan.....

We were simply delighted with everything about Betsy and her husband. She took such wonderful care of Kelcey, our rottweiler, and graciously sent us photo updates while we were away. Kelcey was in vert good hands; she took long walks, played in a creek, and became buddies with another guest dog. Betsy's home is perfectly set up to accommodate dogs who are vacationing; I just can't say enough about how happy we are with our experience with Dog Vacay and Betsy! I would take Kelcey back in a heartbeat and intend to do just that!

Can't recommend Betsy and Dan enough. They took excellent care of our pup...sent us pics each day and were very communicative. We will certainly be using them again in the future!
Betsy and her husband were great with our girl Misty. I could tell that Misty felt comfortable with them and at their home immediately. It was wonderful to get picture of Misty while we were away with updates on how things were going. I highly recommend Betsy for your dog watching needs!

What a wonderful, organized and fun host! Betsy kept us updated with emails and pictures during Molly's stay. It was reassuring knowing Molly was having a great vacation too! We would definitely use Betsy again and have no problem recommending her to anyone.

It was nice to leave our dog at a cozy home where we knew she would get plenty of attention and get to play with other dogs! We felt much more comfortable and relaxed knowing that she was in good hands! It was also reassuring when we got the email updates with pictures and could see that she was doing well!

This was our first time leaving Lacy with a host. We were concerned because she has been with us for only two months, having just adopted this six year Westie from a breeder.
We could not have asked for a better host! Betsy and Dan welcomed our Lacy into their and made us feel very comfortable. There is no doubt in our mind we made a great decision choosing Betsy and Dan. They love and care for dogs and it shows. Spend a few minutes chatting with them and you'll realize the passion they have for dogs. We highly recommend them! Lacy will be staying with Betsy and Dan in the future. Thanks Betsy and Dan for caring for our Lacy!

Betsy provided excellent care for our dog while we were on vacation. She provided updates and pictures of Brodie while we were gone. Thank you Betsy!
What a find! The best dog care ever. What a loving place. I think my dog wants Betsy and husband to have joint custody Making reservations now for summer.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about our dogsitting experience with Betsy. She and her husband treated Foxie like family and sent us updates with pictures throughout her time there so we knew she was well cared for and happy (giving us peace of mind while we were away!). They really got to know her in a short time and learned her likes/dislikes. She was never in a crate or even left alone, she went on plenty of walks and played a ton of fetch (her favorite)- better treatment than when she's home with us! I would highly recommend Betsy if you want personalized, loving care for your dog.

We LOVE Betsy and Dan! They take such amazing care of our "puppy". We are so happy that our dog has a home away from home!!! We have used them a couple of times so far and both times I know our Saint is treated like family. She wags her tail when she sees Betsy. She has a great time playing with other the dogs. Betsy sends alot of updates and pictures too during their stay.

Betsy and Dan are the perfect people to care for anyone's dog. They went beyond caring for my dog and made sure all his special needs were taken care of. My dog was happy and safe with them.
Indy came home happy. This is the first time that he came home happy with no sign of stress. Thank you, Betsy
Betsy and Dan supplied a loving safe environment for my 12 yr old dalmation. He obtained an issue with his eye just before his stay and they were great about caring for him. They followed his treatment plan and when I returned his eye had improved. The photos they sent while away helped me relax. Thank You

What an excellent place and wonderful people to take care of your dog! I know my dog was well loved and exercised, and we will be back!
I can't say enough about Betsy, she is loving, fun and warm to all the dogs....even cranky ones are happy around Betsy! We are so thankful for finally finding someone that we can leave "our girls" with that we can trust and know that "the girls" will have just as much fun as us!

I have a very exuberant Golden with some anxiety issues. I checked out a few different homes but as soon as I met Betsy and her husband I knew they were the best fit for Ollie. They both had plenty of experience with dogs and handled his fear of thunderstorms really well. They were also home 24/7 which was very important to me. During his stay, I received photos and emails and I loved that they took him for daily walks down to a creek by their home. I think Ollie was sad to leave!
