Lucy had a great time staying with Stacey while we were away for a few days. It eases my mind to know how well our pup is treated in her home away from home. ♡ see you again soon.
Awesome! Stacey was a great option for us. She went above and beyond our expectations. After accepting a meet and greet request, we knew we found the right person to watch our dog. She even reached out and thanked us for being prompt to our meeting. Stacey was polite, inviting and great with the animals. Her house and yard were clean. She took the time to explain to us what was expected of her as a host and noted that we were not obligated to select her, if she was not the right choice for us. During the vacay, we received daily photos and updates that we deemed satisfactory. Overall, our experience was positive. Our dog was excited and happy upon pickup with all of her belongings ready to go. We would highly recommend Stacey as a host and look forward to future stays knowing our dog will be in good hands.

Great job! Sandy really had fun!
Sandy had a wonderful time once again!
Never can say enough good things about Stacey and the care she gives our dog Buddy. We always know he gets the best care and is safe with her. Thanks for being there for our pup.
We love Stacey!!! She's so caring, she went out of her way to help us! Our Gracie was so loved and so very well taken care of! We will definitely use Stacy is our number one dog sitter
Stacey is a very kind person. Blu is always excited when we leave him there. I strongly recommend Stacey!
Scout LOVES staying at Stacey's place! She enjoys playing with Hurley and Stacey and her husband always take great care of her. Stacey even had a fun pool set up in the backyard this visit so the dogs could play and keep cool. Stacey is so thoughtful and has even given us extra special treats after Scout stayed for a longer visit. She's our first place to check out anytime we need to board our fur baby!

Our dog, Sandy, had a wonderful time with Stacey this past week. She was well cared for, provided interesting experiences and stimulation. Sandy had just as much fun on vacation as we had! We definitely recommend Stacey to take care of your dog while you are away.

My buddy Riley has stayed with Stacey several times now, and he's been well cared for there. When I drive up to Stacey's house, Riley is eager to run to the front door to see his friends.

Stacey keeps me in the loop through texted photos during my dog's stay. I am very comfortable leaving my dog there.

Stacey is very loving with our dogs. She takes good care of them. She is very accommodating with us and gives us updates with pictures. We are lucky to have found her.
Stacey is great!! This was his 2nd visit and he felt right at home.. Enjoyed playing with the other dogs.. :)
Stacey has taken care of our dog Buddy several times. She is amazing. She cares for Buddy like he is her own. Can't thank her enough for being available when we've needed her and being such a great dog sitter. Probably should also thank her husband too cause we think he helps out a lot too.

Just like last time, Stacey and her husband Derek took great care of my dog, Sadie! I know that when I leave her with them that's she safe and sound and having a great time playing with their dog Hurley!
Second time Stacey has taken care of our husky Bubba. She was very understanding was able accommodate our needs by allowing us to bring him in last minute. He's is very high energy and requires a lot of attention. I know he received plenty of attention and playtime w/ Hurley because Bubba slept as soon as I brought him home. I would definately recommend Stacey.

Stacey was great! Douglas was well cared for and had a great time! We will definitely use Stacey again in the future.
Stacey and her husband were Great!! They took Bob under their wing and treated him like their own.. I appreciate it and Thank You!! :) francie
Stacey was amazing! I received pictures of Faelan everyday and an update on how she was doing. When I went to pick Faelan up, she was having such a good time that she wanted to stay. Stacey also made adorable home-made treats for Faelan to take home.
Great experience! It gave me a piece of mind to know that while i was enjoying my vacation, our dog also had a blast during his vacation with Hurley! Stacey sent picture updates every day, so I didn't have worry about a thing. Our husky spent lots of time outside, running around in the fenced-in yard, which is his favorite activity. Next time we go out of town, there is no doubt Volk is getting another play date with Hurley :)

Stacey was absolutely wonderful. We were first time doggy Vacay users and she made us feel at ease leaving our dog in her care. She gave daily updates and sent pictures and even sent her home with special treats. I would love to have our dog stay with Stacey again in the future.

Stacey is amazing. Very caring and organized.
No doubt would highly recommend Stacey. After having many disappointing experiences at doggy daycare dealing with overcrowding we decided to give doggy vacay a try. We will never look back. Stacey was absolutely fabulous with our husky Bubba. He received plenty of play time with her pups and attention. She was great about sending us plenty of pictures and a video. We were not worried one bit, while we were away. You can tell she takes a lot of pride in what she does. She even took the time to spoil our pup and sent him home with some sweet gourmet goodies. Our dog loved being with Stacey and Hurley so much he literally cried because did not want to leave needless, to say we definitely will be coming back.

Stacey was awesome! I could tell that Blu was happy and well taken care of. I strongly recommend her.
The process was easy. And I was happy to get a reservation with Stacey. Stacey sent pictures of my dog having a fun time with her new furry friends. I knew she was having a wonderful time.
Stacey is an awesome pet sitter! My Siberian Husky had a great time playing non stop with their Husky. She provided a safe and dog friendly environment that left me immediately feeling like I had nothing to worry about while I was gone. She was part of the family instead of being locked in at a traditional boarding kennel. She even provided some gourmet doggie treats for Sadie as a going away present when I picked her up! I will definitely be using Stacey again next time I need a sitter! I'm so glad I found Dogvacay.com!

This was a great experience. Staccey sent pictures of my dog having such a great time. My dog loved playing with the other dogs. She looked so happy in her dogvacay environment. I'll definitely send my dog here again!
Stacey communicated promptly and clearly. She was able to accommodate my puppy on short notice, and was a pleasure to work with. She sent photos, showing how nice a time my puppy was having at her place. Overall, my puppy was well looked after, and I felt secure. Stacey was looking after some big dogs, but my puppy got over his temporary fear, and enjoyed the company. I recommend Stacey, and I'm glad to have found someone who I trust with my little one.

Stacey was great with our husky Luna. We received constant updates including pictures. I would recommend her services to everyone.
I cannot express how thankful we are to have found Stacey (and Hurley). As a new dog Mommy I was very reluctant to even attend a family vacation we had planned for over a year. Lucy-our 12 wk old Golden Retriever puppy had just got the hang of potty and crate training and we didnt want all the hard work to go to waste. After calling dozens of places I was in tears not knowing what to do. I couldnt even think to leave our new "baby" in a kennel.
I came across DogVacay and couldn't believe they had such a thing. After reading reviews of many hosts Stacey seemed like the perfect fit. After talking with her she was actually excited to have Lucy for a few days and jumped right on board with following her scedule and training. She allowed me to bring anything Lucy needed to be comfortable.

As soon as we dropped Lucy off we knew she was in great hands. She jumped right in and started playing. Hurley was so sweet and gentle with her and Stacey was a natural dog mommy ;)
From start to finish Lucy had a great week! Stacey was great at sending pictures and giving updates.

We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing Lucy was happy at her new vacation home in "Paradise".

Thank You Stacey!!! We will be back again! XO

Stacey made the whole experience so easy and stress-free! After our initial meet and greet, I knew Lola would have a blast with Hurley and Stacey. It's never easy leaving our baby, but with daily photo updates and Stacey's obvious love of dogs, the experience was great for both me and Lola!

Lola will definitely be missing Hurley and all the attention, we will be back soon!

Once again our dog Sandy had a great time at Stacey's Paradise Island. She is very caring and conscientious with our dog and is a pleasure to work with. We enjoyed receiving the text messages and pictures while we vacationed so we could have the peace of mind that our pet was well cared for. We definitely would recommend Stacey to anyone who needs a pet sitter!

Cannot imagine a better place to leave our dog Buddy. Daily pictures and updates from Stacey. We love her and the care she gives our dog.
We had our dog, Frodo, stay with Stacey for 15 days. This was our first time away from him, so naturally we were very nervous. But it turned out to be one of the best parts about our vacation! We literally did not worry about him one bit (just missed him a whole heck of a lot). We got pictures every day of him and his new friends playing and hanging out. We were so happy to know that he was having his own little vacation while we had ours. And Stacey even gave us the cutest little treat box when we picked Frodo up!

This really is the best place for your dog, and for you to have a worry-free vacation!

Stacey was absolutely awesome! We left our dog with her for a total of 10 days and from the many pictures Stacey sent each day, it looked like he loved every minute of it! When we picked him up he seemed very well cared for (and slightly sad to leave all of his new friends)! I will most definitely be contacting Stacey the next time we leave town again. I feel very safe leaving our dog with her!

Stacey was absolutely amazing with my dog Chester. I was very nervous about finding him a place to stay where he would feel comfortable, while I was on vacation. My biggest concern was finding someone who could care for my dog as much I do. Stacey was the right person for this. She wanted everything to be the same routines that I had set for Chester. She was attentive to him and sent me updates daily. Also when I picked Chester up Stacey had farewell doggie treats for him. Stacey is a dedicated dog caregiver and I will definitely be using her again.

EXCELLENT!!! Stacey did a fantastic job with our golden Lily. She sent pictures and updates each day. From the moment we met Stacey and her husband we knew Lily would be well taken care of. We will DEFINITELY use Stacey again!!
First, I have to say that I really hate to leave Toby, my white Golden Retriever, when we go out of town for EVEN a long weekend. I made an appointment for a "meet & greet" about 2 days before I had to leave him - that's how much I procrastinate when we leave... It's awful, I know, but Stacey was so awesome & understanding of my feelings that I felt at home immediately AND so did Toby! Stacey & her own dog, Hurley, put my mind to rest & made me feel so comfortable, it was unbelievable! When I returned 2 days later to drop off Toby & all his "stuff", he was running all over the back seat from window to window! He was so excited to see Stacey & Hurley again, he jumped out of my Jeep & made fast tracks to Stacey's front door! He literally left me in his dust! Stacey texted me 2 or 3 pictures a day so I could see how much fun he was having & she bought him "Frosty Paws" which he loves (btw, the first time he's ever had!). She even bought a baby pool that he could play in & cool off - he LOVES the water! When I came to pick him up a week later, he was happy to see me, but didn't want to leave! I would not hesitate for even a second to take Toby back to Stacey's for a "Dog Vacay"!! In fact, I would highly recommend Stacey to family, friends & anyone who has a pet to leave behind while they are out of town!

Thank you Stacey...you are AWESOME!!!

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Stacey and her taking care of our dog Buddy. We received daily pictures of Buddy playing and/or just relaxing with her dog Hurley. We will definitely use her service again. It is very reassuring to know we have someone like Stacey to leave our dog with when we want to go out of town for a few days.

From the moment we met Stacey, we we're thoroughly pleased with her organization and love of dogs. Our golden retriever Sandy had the best time while we were away on an extended vacation. The pictures and texts she sent were wonderful and we could tell that she really cared for our dog. We were very comfortable leaving Sandy, knowing that she would be in excellent hands while we were away. Our family looks forward to engaging Stacey again via DogVacay when we need a pet sitter. Sandy loved playing with her husky Hurley and came home very tired - which is a great time in Sandy's book! We definitely recommend Stacey as a pet sitter.

Stacey watched our husky Zoey for 10 days and I couldn't have felt more at ease while away on vacation. She communicated / responded well and in a timely manner. Each day I received pictures that showed me that my dog was enjoying herself while playing with Stacey's husky Hurley, as well as other pets staying at 'Paradise Island'. A few pics I received were of Zoey sleeping in Stacey's bed making herself right at home! She has a great sized fenced in yard which offered plenty of room for playtime and exercise for my energetic pup. Our dogs made out to be little buddies and I know Zoey would love to see more of Hurley. Overall, it was a great experience and I will not hesitate to use Stacey as a pet sitter the next time we leave town! Also, Zoey thoroughly enjoyed the baked treats she got as a parting gift!

Stacey was amazing! We were sort of nervous about leaving Bailey behind while we went out of town, but Stacey really made us feel at ease. Everyday she sent pics of Bailey and updates on how she was doing. I loved that Stacey has a large fenced in back yard and a husky of her own- bailey got so much exercise and play time! We will definitely be using Stacey the next time we go out of town!

Great first dogvacy.com experience for Charlie and I! Stacey agreed to a meet and greet before I left so we could make sure we were all comfortable. While I was gone I got text and picture updates as to how Charlie was doing- she treated him as one of her own, even letting him sleep in her and her husbands bed. Stacey and her husband were very accommodating, helpful and friendly- and Charlie was exhausted when he got home. Stacey is highly recommended and we plan on using Stacey's pet sitting services again!

I set up a meet and greet and after talking to stacey on the phone felt like it was a great fit. Although, I was extremely nervous about leaving Lulah, our older shy dog at a place with another dog. I didn't want her to feel bombarded. However after we left Stacey sent us photos of Lulah and Hurley hanging in the living room together. It was really nice. I enjoyed my vacation and didn't worry nearly as much as when I have left in the past. It was great and Stacey is very sweet and great at communicating.

Stacy is a very caring and nice person and she definitely took good care of Jasper. Her house is clean and neat and definitely no dog smell when I first stepped into her house. She txt me each day with Jasper picture and told me how Jasper did at her house. Very happy with her service.

Stacey was great!! My dog Jack LOVED her. She took great care of him and she was very easy to work with. She was very accommodating of my schedule and sent me pictures of my baby every day to let me know he was OK! Definitely a relief while going on vacation knowing he was in good hands. I will definitely be using her again and recommending her to everyone I know.

Stacey was excellent and a great dog sitter for Roxy. She was very welcoming and sent me photos/videos with updates regarding Roxy. She has a large fenced in back yard and Roxy got plenty of exercise and playtime with other dogs. Despite the fact that my dog is a little timid with strangers/other homes, Stacey was great with making Roxy feel right at home! Stacey was kind enough to even offer to take care of Roxy for an extra day (free of charge!) when my travel plans got delayed due to poor weather. Additionally, when I came and picked Roxy up, Stacey even bought my dog some treats as a going away present! I would definitely recommend Stacey to anyone who needs a dog sitter.

Stacey was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a more warm and caring person to watch my boys while we were away for the holidays.

Both Stacey and her husband spent a lot of time with us for our "interview", making sure that our boys felt at ease in her home (which is very tidy!). She sent us updates and photos every day, at the same time (consistency was fantastic!), and all the photos showed happy, healthy pups having a great time.

I definitely would recommend Stacey as a fantastic, responsible, and dedicated dog caregiver, and am certain our boys will "vacation" there again in the future! Thanks Stacey!

Stacey was a wonderful host for my pups. They came home happy, health and tired from all the activity and fun they had. Professional and caring, we will definitely book a stay for our dogs with Stacey again.
Stacey provided a great experience for our dogs and was very professional in her approach. She worked with us on arrival and departure times, paid attention to each dog's peculiarities, and sent pics of their experience throughout. We will go back.
