If you decide to leave your dog with us, it will receive the maximum care, love, comfort and fun! We live in a nice downstairs apartment with a big pawtastic patio in a very nice dog friendly community with lots of gardens. Each Vacay day for your dog includes 3 walks around our neighborhood plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home.

We are also able to supervise your dogs 24x7 and provide transportation to a vet in case of a pup-mergency. We also offer: Pick up/Drop off - Bathing - Additional walks - Care for elderly or disabled dogs

Your dogs will be in safe and loving hands since dog sitting is not a job for us, it's a passion!

Love,
Shady & Carolin :)

Shady and Carolin were wonderful. Our dog was very comfortable & happy both dropping him off and picking him up. We will definitely contact Shady & Carolin for our next trip!
Shady & Carolin were fantastic Dogsitter's. My dog was happy and comfortable when I dropped him up. I appreciate all the pictures they sent and I will be using them again in the future.
Excellent service! Loved the photo updates.
Shady and Carolin were very nice to schedule a meet and greet prior to her babysitting reservation. It was nice to meet them and see them interact with Kuma. They did send pics of Kuma making herself at home while we were away. She must've had a lot of fun! She's been exhausted since she's been back. We are looking forward to another getaway knowing she will be taken well care of!

Thank you!!
Janie, Mike & Kuma

I appreciated Shady and Carolyn's welcoming personalities and knew Remy was well taken care of. They sent plenty of picture updates to make sure I knew how he enjoyed his time with them. Would happily book again.
Great stay for Milie..very nice couple and I'll be using them again, thanks!
Shady and Caroline were awesome. It was an excellent experience for my puppy since he got to play with their own puppy. Overall, they were very good hosts and we will be leaving our puppy with them in the future.
Shady and Carolin are a very nice couple. They were great with my Domino and Lola. They sent pictures everyday, and made me feel at ease. I will definitely use them again!
I am so happy Shady was available to take care of Whiskey, my Maltese, while my family and I attended a very important party. Whiskey spent the whole night at Shady’s place and it seems to me he had a great experience.

One of the things I was looking for is for the sitter to have a clean area inside the home because my wife spends a great deal of her time making sure Whiskey is clean and his hair is combed. Well we found that with Shady… So cool.

Shady and Caroline is a young couple who I can tell love dogs. They made Whiskey feel at home so he immediately started to mark his territory, sorry about that Caroline. Next time I need DogVacay I will definitely be looking into booking with Shady. :-)

I was able to go visit Shady before my actual day of leaving. Both his wife and him were very friendly. I told them of a couple of issues my dog had and they had no problem. I was sent photos daily and appreciated it. I would highly recommend them and will use them in the future.

This was the first time leaving our little stella, so we were a little nervous. But Shady and his wife both were very kind and stayed in contact with me through out my vacation. They sent photos to us daily and our kids loved seeing them. Knowing that she was with loving people and getting so much attention was so wonderful! Gave us such a peace to know that we have someone in the future we can trust with our furbaby:)

This is my first time leave my dog Johnny with anyone. He has never even stayed in a doggy hotel. Shady and Carolin kept me up to date with him. They sent me many photos daily and when I got there he was so comfortable with his surroundings. Johnny has anxiety with other dogs but when I got there you wouldn't even think he had any issues. They let him sleep with them in the bed and catered to him non stop. I will not go to anyone else they are so attentive! Deffinitely going back!

Our 2nd time leaving Molly with Shady and Carolin, Molly's tail began wagging as we approached the door. She was happy to see them! It was a comfort to us knowing that she had a good experience the first time and she was happy to see them again. Even though this visit was only overnight, they still sent a couple pics during the day so we knew our girl was in good hands. It is also nice that she gets to socialize with other doggies since she is our only doggie at home. On another note, Shady and Carolin have been very accommodating and flexible, which is a huge help when you have to be somewhere at a certain time. Thank you!

Shady and Carolin were wonderful pet sitters. This was the first time leaving our puppy with anyone for 7 days and we were a little scared. Shady send pictures everyday showing me that I had nothing to worry about. Khaleesi had fun playing with other puppies there as well. We had a great time in our vacation because we knew our Khaleesi was in great hands!

Dog was melancholy upon pick-up. the owner was very accommodating and receptive. we overcame some traffic issues and I was pleased.
Thank you so much for taking care of our Angel for the last 3 days! :) We contacted Shady a couple days before the reservation and they were happy to watch her for us. They sent pictures everyday like they said they would. I do recommend them! Thanks again!!

This was our 1st time leaving our girl Molly and it went GREAT! Of course, we were nervous at first, but we did a Meet and Greet with Shady and Carolin and felt at ease. We loved that they both got on the floor with Molly to pet and hug her and get to know her. They answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable. While we were gone (3 nights) they sent pics of our girl each day and kept in communication with us. That helps a lot when you miss your fur-baby! We will definitely use Shady and Carolin again!!!

I would believe that any dog owner wishes their pup to be well cares for, pampered, and exercised in the event of his/her absence. Shady and Carolin went above and beyond to take care of my Pomeranian and border collie--to the extent that they cooked a home remedy to help the stomach of the border collie during bouts of diahrrea. They were communicative and very easy to book with and did a great job. Their price is fair and are the sweetest couple one can meet. I would have no qualms rebooking with them!

Our dog is part of our family and our little guy was treated like a family member with these two! We got updates often and our dog looked happy and content. When we picked up our boy, he was his happy self. We feel at ease knowing we can travel and our dog will be safe and well cared for.

Our dogs were in great hands with these two. Our dogs are usually very shy with meeting new people, but took to Shady and Carolin quickly. They sent us pictures and updates regularly. It's a good feeling to know that while on vacation, your furry family members are making new friends and are being taken care of. We highly recommend these two! Our pooches will visit again!

Excellent all around! My pup was so happy when I went to pick her up that I feared she would disappointed when she got home to just me and my partner. I love that they kept me updated throughout the stay with messages and pictures. Would definitely book with Shady again!

Shady and Caroline are very nice. I was skeptic about leaving my five month old Bichon Frise with sitters for the first time. But they provided updated pics to put me at ease while I was away for two nights. They respond quickly to my messages also. My pup looked exactly the same when I dropped him off. Thanks Shady and Caroline for taking care of Charlie. Will see you again.

Shady and Carolin kept us updated with our dog. They also sent us pics throughout her stay which we looked forward to at the end of our day while on our trip. They accommodated our last minute boarding request and was flexible with the drop off and pick up times.

Shady is such a attentive, loving and caring host. I left my pup for five days. Each day I received a picture of my baby enjoying his stay. As we were leaving my dog started whining once Shady and his wife were out of his sight. They treated my pup very well and as if he were their own. I would definitely recommend and use them again. You can tell he is a true dog lover.

I cannot thank Shady and Carolin enough! I just moved to California from Texas and did not have enough time to browse different boarding places before I went out of town again for the weekend. Carolin accepted my last minute, same day request. I was thrilled to receive several photo updates while I was away. When I came to the door to pick Misty up, she greeted me with lots of energy and a smile! And it absolutely warmed my heart to know they loved my little one like one of their own. I will definitely use Shady and Carolin any time I need someone to take care of Misty because I know she is in good hands! :)

Daisy loved her time with Shady, we were very pleased with her stay at Shady's. Great job !
Another great stay!
Do not leave your dog here. I had to text to ask about my puppy, didn't get two pictures a day as promised. Asked what happened to my puppy cause he was crying when I would touch his tail and back and did not get an honest answer. I now have my puppy in the vets care for a possible fractured back. My puppy had a complete bill of health a week and a half from his vet prior. They will not be honest or take responsibility.

They were great. Super friendly and attentive to the dogs. We have to completely different dogs one is a puppy with high energy and the other is a 4 year old with a more laid back mentality. and both dogs seemed to love them when we came to pick them up. Although we were unable to receive photo updates the dogs were in great condition and comfortable enough to eat all there food and even made a new friend on there stay with another vacationing dog. We will definitely be using them again.

P.S. This stay was all on short notice on the holiday weekend after someone else cancelled.

Shady is very professional. My puppy really had a great time. Strongly recommend.
We left our special girls with Shady & Carolin for 2 weeks while we were on vacation. It was the longest time we have ever left our dogs. I was very nervous, as one of my Cavaliers suffers from Syringomyelia and requires multiple medications throughout the day. Shady & Carolin never hesitated on accepting the responsibility of caring for her. From the moment I met them, I felt a sigh of relief, knowing they would take good care of our dogs. They sent pictures throughout our vacation, and kept me up to date on their stay. It was wonderful to pick up our dogs, and to see them wag their tails when Shady & Carolin talked to them, was an added bonus. We are planning several trips, and they will stay with Shady & Carolin! Thank you both for taking such good care of them!!

We are very thankful to Shady and Caroline for taking care of our dogs and sending us pictures daily of the 2 of them. We would definately use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Thanks again Shady and Caroline
for all that you did

Shady and Caroline were excellent care givers to our dog Korra. Korra can sometimes have separation anxiety from us and we have seen that she can sometimes comes back from a trip to the sitter as an emotional mess. This was not the case with Shady and Caroline. Korra was well cared for at all times and we were sent pictures and updates so that we could know she was doing well! I would definitely recommend Shady and Caroline. They really care about animals and did a great job for us!

Buddy had a great trip. Shady and Caroline were so sweet and accommodating for our last minute reservation. Caroline was so affectionate with Buddy, I can tell she loves animals. I received photos while we were gone and when I picked up Buddy, he was happy and in great spirits. I feel comfortable knowing that I've found a second home for Buddy when we have to go out of town.
