About Roland

*please follow Cori on instagram!*
instagram.com/coridacorgi/

*Free Dog bathing with each overnight stay*

I'm a paramedic and I enjoy helping people in their time of need, the feeling is mutual when it comes to dogs too.

6 years ago I brought home Cori as a puppy and he's been the best companion anyone can wish for. We then found a Yorkie alone on the streets and unable to find her owner we adopted and named her Mini. Answering an online ad, a family didn't have time for their Corgi and was looking to give her away and we answered the ad brought home Nabi. The three of them get daily walks in the neighborhood and every few days we bring them to the large park nearby to meet other dogs and get their muscles worked on. Any dog staying over with these three will get plenty of exercise from playing with each other!

Be assured that your dog won't be alone at all during any point of the day or night most of the time. Besides the company of my three dogs, someone will usually be home. I work the overnight while my wife works during the day so there will be human interaction all the time. We also have an abundance of toys, doggy beds, and doggy treats to please any dog. I also own a doggy treadmill, perfect for those days when it's just too nasty to be outside.

My dogs know an assortment of tricks such as paw, sit, stay, high five, bye bye, roll over, and my favorite one of all "BANG BANG", my version of playing dead.

If needed, I can help with your dog's behavior problem or to learn a new trick, no dog is ever too old or young to learn something new, its all about persistence and patience.

Meet and greets with the dogs are highly recommended as to see how the dogs interact and any questions or concerns can be easily answered.

We do have a few rules for the home:

*We ask that all dogs be housebroken to avoid any unnecessary accidents. More frequent walks can be accommodated if needed.
*All dogs MUST be comfortable with the handling of their paws, we wipe our dog's paws before they enter the home in order to maintain a clean home.

Roland is great! I feel completely confident leaving my dog in his care, and have done so on several occasions. He is always super responsive via text/ phone, and sends pictures daily of my dog having fun with other doggies while I'm away. Highly recommended!

Chris is now a repeat visitor! He has visited twice, on his second trip he was jumping at the window excited to go back. He realized where he was a few blocks away. He gets many walks per day, has other pups to visit. We are VERY happy with Roland!
My dog tends to get anxious when I leave him anywhere new. He has had one sitter since he was a little pup. After visiting Roland, he felt right at home. He had the other little pups to hang out with, and he was able to stay entertained the entire time. I received great photos of my little guy enjoying himself. I was VERY happy with Roland. He responded fast and was able to deal with Chris. We will be repeat visitors!

Roland is great! He was honest and my Honey girl had a great time. Although my hours were a bit crazy for daycare he was very understanding.
Our dog Rocky had great time. Roland promptly responded to our questions, and sent us bunch of great photos of Rocky and other dogs. We are very happy with the experience and will use Roland every time we need help with Rocky.
I went away for Xmas of 2015 for 10 days and Roland took care of my dog really well. It was my first time to use Dog Vacay. I studied all the reviews and dog sitter before I chose Roland and I was so happy with my choice.
Daily update of the photo made me feel at ease. She was smiling every photo!
I had a horrible experience in a dog boarding place prior to this. I felt so bad when I went to pick her up. On the other hand, when Roland brought her back she was very happy to see me but not that extremely crazy happy and I knew she really had a great time with Roland. I am definitely booking them for my next trip.

I recently left my little furbaby with Roland for a week, and couldn't be more pleased! I have used his services in the past and as always, he has shown himself to be professional in all his dealings with me, and most importantly to be a caring and dedicated caregiver for my little Havanese lovebug!
My doggie loves going to Roland's as she is happy interacting with his pack and always comes back to me well taken care of and in great spirits! I have come to rely on Roland as my absolute go to sitter, and am thrilled to be able to wholeheartedly recommend him to others! Thanks Roland and Maria.

Roland was absolutely perfect! My dog is shy and timid. So I was a little nervous at the beginning about having her stay with a dogsitter. But Roland and his doggies made Leia extremely comfortable. I actually think it helped my dog build overall confidence now. Roland was also very flexible in pick up and drop off times. Will highly recommend

Roland is an awesome pup host!
Another awesome vacay for Charlie B with Roland - he's so great about sending pics and keeping me informed when I'm away - he even gave my pup a bath!!
Our dog loves staying with Roland! She has a fun time with Roland, Maria and their dogs. It makes me feel much better that she doesn't have to sit at home alone the days I'm out, but gets to socialize and be active. He and his wive Maria take such good care of Daisy, plus they send us cute pictures to see what she's been up to during the day.

Roland was great! He was very easy to talk to and asked appropriate questions about Coda in order to better understand her needs.

He sent pictures almost every day and gave me updates on how she was doing.

Coda was clean and happy when I picked her up, they had given her a bath!

I would have Roland sit Coda again and would recommend him to others.

Roland is awesome and took excellent care of our dog. He was very responsive over text and would update us frequently.
Roland treated Charlie Brown as if she was his own pup. She actually got a little sick and had to go to the vet -- and he felt so bad about her having to stay in a cage, that he took her home with him to care for her. He shared pics and videos through the week and Charlie had so much fun with his pups and other boarders. I will definitely request Roland again and recommend him to friends.

We have been using Roland's daycare services for our dog Daisy while we're at work and it has been an absolute pleasure. Roland is very responsive and does a great job keeping us updated with how Daisy is doing via texts and pictures. We are also happy that while Roland is caring for her, she gets to hang out with his 3 dogs to help keep her company. She's always really happy to see him and his wife when they pick her up so we know she's enjoying her stay. We couldn't recommend him enough!

jackie had a wonderful time with roland and his dogs! we got photos and jackie made some friends- in fact he did not want to stay home, he wanted to go back to roland's house!
Roland and Maria were great. They sent cute pictures of my dog to let me know how he was doing. It was so nice to still feel connected, even though I was far away. Thanks a bunch!
Roland was excellent. He sent us pictures of Dexter the entire time we were away. We really felt like Dexter was being well cared for. I would definitely leave Dexter with Roland again, and I'd recommend him to any of my friends looking for a dog sitter.

the best dog sitter ever! Roland is very knowledge, friendly, accommodating, and was very patient with dogs. My dog Ruby use to always bark whenever a dog walked past by. She use to pull me towards them! After just a few visits she barely barks at any dog! I also receive picture/text messages from him so I know that Rubys doing just fine without me.Book him you won't regret it !

Best dog sitter ever! I knew from the first meet and greet he would be the perfect dog sitter for my dog. He's very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and was patient with my dog Ruby. She no longer barks at dogs like she use too during my walks with her! I also recieve picture/text messages every visit so that I know Ruby is doing just fine. I no longer feel bad leaving Ruby for hours at my house which is just a great weight lifted off my shoulders! :) Book him you won't regret it !

They took good care of my puppy and have a genuine love for dogs. Would trust them with my little one again.
Great as always! Always my first choice when I need a dog sitter!
This reservation is our second DogVacay reservation with Roland and Maria this year and I felt very much at ease leaving my dog for 6 nights with them. The daily photo updates were helpful. Emma did not experience separation anxiety and she ate all her food which tells me she was very comfortable and very well taken care of during her stay. Roland and Maria were extremely accommodating with the pick up and drop off which I truly appreciate. Emma came back to us very happy and healthy as before. I can't thank them enough for all the love and attention they gave our little girl! Thank you!

Roland and Maria watched our dog for one week and we were very happy with their care! Our dog is very anxious, but Roland and Maria were both very patient and understanding with him. They did everything they could to make sure he was comfortable. Roland and Maria sent regular text updates and pictures so that we were kept in the loop about how our dog was doing. I would definitely recommend them and would certainly book them again!

From the moment I met Roland and Maria, I knew they were the ones I should leave my dog with. They are extremely friendly and caring but most of all warm. Roland sent me numerous pictures during my vacation (4-5 at a time) which I really appreciated. He did exactly what I asked even towards the end. My dog gets car sick so i have to give him medication. I had a bad flight so I wasn't thinking straight but he texted me and asked how much medication to give. My dog came home happy and even more loving than before! He also understood my dog's nervous personality and did things to make him more comfortable. Not many people will take the time to do that or be honest about it. Do your dog a favor and leave him here, your dog will love you for it!

Our dog had a great time with Roland and his dogs. Roland was keeping in touch with us daily, and sent us number of great pictures of our dog playing and enjoying his stay. I would highly recommend Roland's sitter services, and I'm glad that we found place for our dog to stay when we are away.

Roland was a great host; very accommodating and took great care of Buster. He sent updates and photos of Buster to make sure we knew he was getting cared for. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great and easy going host.
This was our first experience leaving our little dog with a sitter for the first time, and Roland made the experience entirely enjoyable and worry-free. After our initial greet with Roland, we were confident we were leaving our dog in trusted care, and we were definitely right! Roland did a wonderful job taking care of her, giving us periodic picture updates where we got to see all her new doggy friends. Roland is very professional, friendly and knowledgeable, giving us some very useful tips after we picked her up. We highly recommend him!

Roland takes great care of the dogs. Highly recommended.
Wish that I could rate it 10 stars! My dog had a more-than-amazing time at Roland's. He made a to. Of new friends. Bet he can't wait to be back next time.
This was a great weekend dog vacay for my dog Emma! They picked up Emma from our place and Roland sent us updates every day. My dog normally experiences separation anxiety but surprisingly with Roland, she did not refuse food and she was happy and comfortable during her stay. Roland and Maria did a great job of making her feel at ease. This was an excellent experience for Emma and I highly recommend them for anyone looking for proper attention for their dog. They put us at great ease being far away. They provided a warm, inviting, caring, positive, safe and healthy place for our Emma. I can't thank them enough.

Our go to dog sitter!!
Awesome as always!
Roland was very prompt in his responses online and gave us regular updates on our dog throughout the entire weekend. He even gave our dog a bath! We needed him to drop off our dog at home before we arrived home from our trip, and he was very accommodating with our request. My husband and I will certainly use his services again.

Roland is very professional and extremely nice. Our husky was actually crying the car after we picked her up because she didn't want to go. Definitely would recommend Roland to anyone!
My first experience with Dogvacay.com has been amazing! Roland C is a caring, knowledgeable, accomodating, professional and responsive host! My 6 month old puppy was hosted by him, and I can honestly say that the level of care he displayed was superb! highly recommend him, and will certainly plan on using DogVacay's services again in the future. Thanks guys, you made our vacation seamless, even during these crazy winter storms!

Marie and Roland are incredible! During Butters 2 day stay with him, I received regular updates with photos of my baby. They have dogs of their own and it made me feel so much better about leaving Butters..they made sure he always had company. I would definitely recommend Marie and Roland!

Roland was absolutely amazing with Rex! We ended up scrambling to find a dog sitter last minute because another sitter cancelled on us. We were so fortunate to have came across Roland on Dog Vacay! He took such great care of Rex and sent us texts and pictures to let us know that Rex was doing fine with him. Roland also has dogs of his own who were so welcoming towards Rex. I would highly recomment Roland to others, and we will definitely be using him again when we are in need of a dog sitter.

Roland and Maria were amazing with my Gizmo! I always miss her when I travel, but Roland was great about sending me pictures everyday. They were also very flexible about taking her even though it was during the holidays. Gizmo had an entire week playing non-stop with her new friends and I know she wants to go back for more!

So glad we were able to find Roland to watch our pups on Christmas Day! He was extremely patient with them as they got used to their new surroundings and from all the photos he shared with us, it looks like they had a blast playing with all the toys, cuddling on the couch, and snoozing in the doggie beds. Absolutely 5-stars!

My second time using Roland and Maria and they were great once again. Mochi came back home and slept through the whole night and didn't even wake me up at 6 a.m. to feed him like he usually does. They took him to events throughout the weekend and they provide lots of pictures. Would definitely use them again! Highly recommended. He came back smelling great too after his bath.

Roland and Maria were great. they were able to accommodate our crazy but friendly lab over the extended holiday. We had a meet and greet where our dogs were able to get aquatinted. They sent pics of our pet to let us know he was doing good and gave him a good cleaning during his stay.

Roland and Maria were awesome with my dog, i received a lot of updates through out the day. I would definitely leave my dog again with them in the future!
Pin pon's vacay with Roland and his wife was a great idea, they took our pup to a Halloween doggie party even dressed her with a shark custom..so cut!!..sent lots of pictures and lots of updates we are very happy and we would chooses Roland for next time.

Rocco had a great time and was very well cared for. He got plenty of walks and was immediately at ease with Roland.....excellent and trustworthy dogsitter!!
Great dog care as always!
Today is our dog second time staying with Roland and Maria, and of course is as good as the first time. Not only walked her they also took her to the dog park and Petco with their pack. What I like about Roland and Maria they are always so patient and have positive energy. Everytime our dog has an issue while she's there, they took care of it professionally. Definitely going back there again!!!

What genuinely positive thing can I not say about Roland and his wife Maria! We were on our way to them when we got into and accident. He came out to us right away and not only picked up Bailey our pup but also took us to the wedding we were in NYC to photograph. He constantly updated us with pictures and asked for our well being. I dont think I could even consider not using Roland for any puppy vacay in new york we will need in the future. Just too amazing to stay away!

Thank you!!!

Roland was great with Mochi. He took him to the park and also his favorite store Petco. They sent lots of pictures and when he got home Sunday Mochi was so exhausted he went straight to sleep until morning. Would definitely use him again!
I just picked up my baby Pebbles who had the opportunity to stay with Roland and his wife for the weekend. I found them after a frantic search because my original sitter bailed on me last minute. After searching several profiles, I stumbled upon Roland's, and read each and every review he had, which by the way were all great reviews. I decided that he would be the best option for Pebbles, and boy was I right! I was very nervous at first and Roland agreed to do a last minute meet and greet so that we could get to know each other. After our initial meeting, I felt more comfortable with leaving Pebbles with them. They were so reassuring and not only that, seemed great with dogs. Roland was kind enough to pick up Pebbles from my apartment, and even offered to have Pebbles groomed. They did a wonderful job with the cut I specified that I wanted. Not only that, he gave me daily updates on how she was doing and sent me pictures to show how good of a time Pebbles was having, which made me more at ease. I really appreciate everything that they did to accommodate me in my time of need. They are awesome!! I will definitely use them if I need them in the future. Awesome couple for awesome dogs like my baby Pebbles. I wouldn't trust her with anybody else. :)

Roland and Maria were amazing! They constantly updated us with pictures and texts of our puppy Cody. The pictures always showed Cody to be enjoying himself with the company of other dogs at their home and the dog park. We were a little bit scared since it was our first time leaving Cody but he seemed right at home. They also made sure to ask questions about Cody's needs to make sure he was doing well. They took great care of Cody and I would definitely use their service again and recommend those in need of a doggy daycare.

Roland was an excellent host!! I was in town for a wedding and my dog sitter fell through so last minute I contacted him through dog vacay. He was flexible on our meeting and times and was inquisitive as to my personal preferences for maintaining my pet, I could tell he was concerned with details and very careful and considerate.
During her stay he kept me up to date with her activities and was even nice enough to send picture messages of my very satisfied puppy.
I could tell he is a dog lover and would highly recommend him as your dog host!

RIO WAS VERY HAPPY WITH ROLAND, HE WAS WELL TAKEN CARE OF & I RECEIVED PICTURES OF RIO OFTEN. THANKS ROLAND
Roland and his wife are STILL amazing! So accommodating and helpful, and my dog loves them.
This is our first time to send our 6 years old Siberian Husky to dog sitter, after went through several options, we decided to choose Roland. We did the right thing. Even though it's last minute reservation, Roland took Sandy in. Sandy had some issues when she's there, but Roland and Maria stayed cool and professional and took care of everything. One more thing, Sandy goes home clean!!!! Roland and Maria are highly recommended!!

Mole's stay with Roland and Maria was good. They always kept me up-to-date with how he's doing and what he's doing, which puts my mind at ease while I'm at work. Thanks, guys!
Roland and his wife were WONDERFUL hosts to my dog, Freckles. Although she is an intense and energetic German Shorthaired Pointer, they took her in and treated her kindly and lovingly. I received updates and reassurances that all was well every few days. She was very sad to leave! I will definitely be utilizing their services again!

Roland and Marie are amazing. We left our 2.5 year old bulldog with them for 5 nights and the results were incredible. Our dog is arrived to them very excited, but also very anxious. I got daily updates from Roland about his progress that truly helped ease my mind. Roland made a decision to bring our dog to a social gathering and took time to provide a detailed email about the day. The gathering provided our dog an atmosphere to play and release some energy and anxiousness. It also allowed him to bond more closely with Roland. In the days that followed, he was more relaxed and at ease. Roland handled it all expertly and he was kind and attentive. Our dog is a family member to us - knowing that he was in great care meant everything. Further, Marie was an expert at capturing him in photos. It's no easy task as he hardly sits still and has an aversion to cameras. But we loved seeing him in the pictures they shared!

We're so grateful and look forward to working with Roland and Marie again!

There is no one I trust more with my dog than Roland and Marie. I know when I'm on vacation my dog will be in the best hands and I'll never have to worry. Roland comes with my highest recxomendation. Thanks again!!
Roland and his wife cared my dog for a week. I got photos (1-3 pictures daily). my dog had fun with his dogs too.
Roland was fantastic! He and his wife were super sweet and understanding when it came to Creams needs and went above and beyond to make sure he was happy and doing well. They even sent text updates and pictures of Cream throughout the stay to see how he was doing. And being an older dog with weaker knees, they definitely catered to helping him go easy on his knees. And their dogs were absolute sweethearts as well and perfect playmates. I would highly highly recommend Roland and would book him again for Cream in a heartbeat!

Roland watched our foster bulldog Chopper for the day. He was great! Updates and pictures were sent throughout the day, and I always had a feel for how our pup was faring. I'll definitely be booking with him again.
my planned-first-without my lab Dragon trip was last Christmas, but at last minutes, on our way to drop off Dragon, i had to cancel Dragon's reservation with Roland because a unexpected car accident happened. Roland was nice with my very last minutes changes and sent me full refund. For this spring trip, I made the second reservation with him without searching around because the trust I already have had with Roland. Roland accommodated his time very well; i was late for dropping off and late for picking up Dragon again. Roland and his lovely wife were patiently waiting for us. During our trip, I believe Roland made his effort helping Dragon to adjust quicker and had tried his best to make Dragon comfortable during her stays, asking questions about Dragon to make sure take care of her appropriately, sending me photos to help me guilty least:)...I can't say how satisfied Dragon was since she couldn't talk, but I know I will still leave my daughter Dragon with him if I need to.
Great thanks to you two, Roland and Maria.

we were very pleased with Roland. Indi was well taken care of. A nice bath. frequent updates. would love to go back.
Roland was a great host to our dog Princess. He took care of all her needs and provided us with updates. For any future dog sitting needs my first choice will be Roland. Anyone that needs peace of mind when traveling and leaving your dog Roland will provide that to you....

Thank you again Roland!

Roland and his wonderful wife Marie are as good as it gets when it comes to dog sitters. I was going on my honeymoon for two weeks and knew that Roland and his wife were the two people most capable of watching my dog Lily. Not only was I constantly updated with emails and the best pictures of Lily, they also were able to teach my dog some new tricks and provide her with behavioral training that has already made a big difference since we've gotten home. I would recommend Roland to anyone in need of a reliable dog sitter they can trust. You will never have to worry about your dog when they are being taken care of by Roland. He's truly the best (and Marie too!)

Roland and his wife were amazing! They really cared about my two dogs, who have never stood outside our home aside from a regular boarding place. My dogs are not very social dogs and do not know any tricks as well. Roland took special care of them, taught them to sit and really treated them as his own. I received pictures and updates through out their time with them. I felt that my dogs were safe and well taken care of. I would definitely leave my "babies" with him again!

Excellent. The dogs were very happy with Roland and were returned cleaned and brushed. Highly recommended!
This was the first time I have ever trusted anyone to take care of our precious Bentley and I have no regrets, With Roland I was able to feel happy that our puppy was being taken care of. He will send me pictures, updates, videos of our dog. I knew he was being cared for just like if he was one of his own. Bentley was happy and that made us happy. I will highly recommend Roland and will continue to use him for many more vacations to come. Once again Thank you Roland & Maria for all of your wonderful advise and outstanding care for Little Bentley.

Roland was pretty good with Vader! My almost 2 year old pup is full of energy and always needs a playtime & I feel that Roland was able to provide that & much more. Would book with him again! :)
Roland and Maria were excellent hosts. They sent me many adorable pictures and were so nice. They communicated with me regularly and quickly, and were flexible and understanding about my schedule. They have dogs of their own, so I was very comfortable knowing that my dogs had playmates during the day. Also, they live in a nice neighborhood that is good for walks. Great people, highly recommend!

FulĂ´ had a great time staying with Roland and Maria! She was just off a plane, moving from Brazil and a bit stressed with the trip, and they were very patient in making her feel comfortable for her weekend in NYC. She adapted really fast at their place and I didn't have to worry about her, since they sent me pictures and kept me updated on how she was doing. Recommended!

Roland was a great host. I needed somebody to take care of Bowser at the last minute and Roland was both quick in responding and very accommodating to my requests. I got a sense through his questions, that he really cared about providing the dogs with a comfortable stay by adjusting to the dog's daily habits.

He lives in a relatively quiet neighborhood in Queens, with lots of grass and trees near his house (relatively speaking... this is still NY), which is a plus for Bowser because he can only go to the bathroom on grass. Roland was also taking care of a couple of other dogs at the time, so Bowser had a lot of friends to play with. I got a text update with pictures about 1-2 times a day.

Overall a great experience, and would both use his services again and recommend him to others.

Thanks Roland.

Ronald and his wife were great!!! They were very patient with my 5 month old beagle. Will definitely leave my puppy with Ronald again.
Roland and his wife took great care of our dog Albie while we were away! They kept us up to date on how Albie was doing with pictures of him at the dog park and playing with their four dogs as well as emails that eased our mind. We looked forward to every email we got!

Albie is a puppy and Roland was happy to help us continue our training, even trying out a new kind of harness for walking. Albie came home fresh out of the bath and totally exhausted from all the fun he had. We would definitely leave our buddy with Roland again, he left a happy pup!

I was extremely pleased with how well Roland cared for my 10 year old dog Chazz,being that he is allergic to wet dog food,which Roland had to cook chicken,peas and carrots daily for him.He had to give him medication for his hypothyroidism twice a day.He is unable to jump or down off of anything,and able to do stairs.Due to short legs,and a bad back left leg.I thought it would have had difficult to find someone to deal with all of Chazz problems.But finding Roland was a blessing.He made me feel comfortable with him caring for Chazz,while I was away for 9 days on my cruise,I didn't worry at all. I will be using Roland again and again that is for sure.And I received many photos of Chazz stay.Thanks again Roland.

Another great stay with Roland and Maria! Chomsky is always happy to see them and that definitely gives me peace of mind when I travel. And after an overnight stay he gets a good bath and looks better than when I dropped him off :D This is Chomsky's home away from home, for sure. Thanks again guys!

As always, a great experience with Roland and his wife. They go far and beyond to make sure our dog has a great time, and the most important thing is they constantly are keeping us updated on how our dog is doing. We've also gotten some of the cutest pictures of our dog from Roland. He comes with my highest recommendation for those who are in need of an experienced and caring dog sitter. 5 stars!

Yesterday was the first time leaving my dog with a complete stranger, but I have to say I'm very pleased with Roland's work. My dog was very happy, safe and is already missing him new friends (Roland's dogs). I really liked the text and picture updates, i received through the day, made me feel glad that he was in good hands.I will definitely trust him to take care of my doggy again. Thank you so much Roland and to your wife.

Roland recently cared for our dog, Argo. From the time I first contacted Roland, he proved himself the ultimate professional. He promptly returned my phone calls and was very diligent in arranging to meet Argo and understand what his needs were. During the time he cared for Argo, Roland texted us and sent pictures. It was obvious that Argo was not only safe and well cared for but had a super time. Argo and my family give Roland 5 paws. Going away on vacation is so much easier now that our family has found such a great dog sitter. Thanks Roland.

Great as always ! Very flexible and Charlie loves them ;)
Roland and Maria recently boarded my dog for the first time. I wanted to get away for the weekend and needed someone reliable to take care of Emma, my chihuahua. Roland was very accommodating with drop off/pick up times. Very friendly text updates. My dog felt comfortable with their pets especially Mini. Their apartment is clean, dog-safe, and well maintained. They made sure that Emma felt comfortable especially the first day apart from me and from the text photo updates, I could tell that my dog felt safe. Their dogs were such great company for her. I felt so happy and relaxed during my trip knowing Emma was in good hands. Roland and Maria are reliable and genuinely caring pet-sitters! Emma misses her new friends already. Thank you both for giving me some much needed peace of mind this weekend!

Thanks so much for taking care of Chomsky! My husband and I had to go out of town and we have never left him anywhere and certainly did not want to leave him in a kennel. I am so happy I came across your profile, it was a lifesaver:) I love that I got pics of him throughout his stay. It made me feel better knowing he was having fun. I couldn't be happier with the care he received. Chomsky came back home a happy puppy indeed. Thanks!!!!

Roland and Maria couldnt have been better hosts for my dog Clarence. The delivered as promised and the previous reviewers were spot-on. My dog does not take to change very well but couldnt have been happier with his stay and came home in better spirits then when he left. If your not sure about who to use on this website, look no further..... 10 out of 10.

Roland was fantastic! We had a meet-n-greet which was great because I could explain all of my dog's "quirks" to him. I'm very particular about who takes care of my dog and Roland certainly made the cut. He was super responsive, sent us photos, and was very understanding when our trip was cut short for weather reasons. We will definitely be contacting Roland again for future dog-sitting needs.

My dog Lily had the greatest time with Roland and his awesome dog Cori the Corgi!! I would recommend Roland to anyone looking for a responsible dog sitter. I was constantly updated throughout the weekend on Lily's progress, I even got some amazing pictures of Lily and Roland's dog!! Roland and his fiance are compassionate dog lovers who anyone can trust leaving their dog with. 5 stars!! I'll be using Roland anytime my pup needs a vacation!!

Fantastic hosts! Our Charlie seemed to have enjoyed himself. Especially liked and appreciated the included bath. Definitely will book again :)
Excellent host! Very flexible and accommodating.
I don't know if it's because of his profession or because of his big heart or both, but Roland and his girlfriend, Maria, are one of the best people out there to take care of your pet.

They always found a way to contact me and sent me pictures of Chocolat on a daily basis while he was with them.

Whenever there was a problem or they ran into an issue, they let me know and gave me detailed explanations of what was going on and what they were doing to handle it.

I'm so glad Chocolat stayed with them because I don't think anyone else would have been able to take care of him so well and professionally.

Roland and Maria, I don't know them personally, but from my experience, they are honestly the kindest, most genuine, and loving people out their. They are a beautiful couple inside and out and I super thank them for all their help and patience.

Roland and his fiance Maria were great hosts! They were quick to respond, very accommodating and kept me well informed about my dog's stay by sending me pics and texts. I could tell my dog had a great time at their house and with their two dogs. I highly recommend them.
