Michael & Colleen were fantastic, great group of folks!
My dog seemed like he had a very happy, comfy and great time with him. Michael knows how to take good care about dogs. Michael responded very quickly to my request of when I would like him to watch my dog. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who is looking for someone to watch their dog(s). He gives them all the love and attention you would if they were home. I know I will be using him again if the need arises. Every dog will be happy with him. Thank you again

Michael was very kind to my dog Max, who can be quite anxious. I know he had a good time playing there, and was well taken care of.
Michael and his family were great hosts! They took great care of my Labrador and enjoyed his company as well. I would absolutely recommend them and will use their services again!
Michael made everything so easy and our dog Spoetzl had such a great time this weekend! Michael is very friendly and Spoetzl loved him and his family. He was exhausted when we brought him home! I am so glad I now have a go-to dog watcher when we need to go out of town!

Wow! We usually leave our beloved Dachshund Yorkie (Dorkie), Tootsie Roll, with family when we go out of town. We would never dream of boarding Tootsie! We care so much about Tootsie that we drive 2 hours from home to ensure she is able to enjoy the comforts of family while we are away. After all, she’s a member of our family (a diva at that). However, during our recent planned vacation, our family members were not available to keep Tootsie. We reluctantly searched the internet for alternative boarding options with a focus on individuals offering boarding out of their homes. Luckily, we found Dog Vacay!

There is a trail in our neighborhood where many people walk their dogs. The search in our zip code returned a number of hosts, including a family who live just blocks away. Serendipitously, we recognized a familiar Chihuahua Dachshund (Chiweenie), named Sandy, from walks in the park!

Although we had only met Sandy and her family one or two times in the park, Sandy is unforgettable because she is adorable! We also remembered Sandy because Michael and his family were so friendly when Tootsie ran up to meet Sandy while on a walk.

Before Tootsie’s 4 day stay, we brought her over for a visit with Sandy at her home. We couldn’t have hand picked a better family! Their house is fabulous AND they have a doggie door with a fenced back yard. (This is a plus because Tootsie likes to go outside and roam). Also, they have 2 great kids who are very friendly and sweet to Tootsie.

Not only did we feel at ease about Tootsie’s care while we were away, we felt like she got her own vacation with a caring family and a new friend. We received daily texts of Tootsie playing and enjoying her favorite spot in a lap! We knew Tootsie was absolutely overjoyed because her tail was wagging so fast in one photo that it was a blur!

We highly recommend this family to care for your endeared pet while away. We were so pleased that we will continue to seek accommodations with this host family instead of driving to our own family homes. (Sorry, Mom!).

Thank you so much Michael and family!

Sincerely,
The Allen Family

Michael and his family were able to watch my little Carter for me on a last minutes notice, and on the 4th of July holiday, when all the kennels were booked up!

I had actually left my dog with a friend, but it didn't work out because my dog cried all night because he has a bit of separation anxiety being away from me.

The situation with my friend was't going to work out, and Michael and his family were available to rescue me from this unfortunate situation.

Other than getting me out of a really tight spot, they gave my little baby the utmost of care. They sent me daily texts with pictures and updates on how Carter was doing. My dog loves human attention, and I think he got a great fill of it while I was gone. When I picked him up, he was very happy to see me, but he gave me a look and attitude that indicated to me he had a ton of fun!

I'd definitely enlist the dog-sitting services of Michael again! Major kudos to them!
