About Matthew

11 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a college student living at home. I have a great deal of availability. I also have the support of my mother, Nancy, my father, Tony, and my sister, Michelle, who are dog lovers as well. We have helped to take care of dogs in our neighborhood. Before our dog passed away, if we did not take him with us on vacation, we found someone to care for him in our home. I know how important it is to be able to leave home and know that your beloved pet is cared for. I charge $35 per night for big dogs and $25/night for smaller dogs. For multiple dogs, I charge full price on the first and half off of the rest. I can only take care of 1 large/x-large dog OR 2 small dogs at a time. For puppies I charge $30 per night.

Matthew and his family treated Hiccup like family.When I came to pick him up, he was on the couch lounging Thank you for opening you house to Hiccup.
Mathew seems to love having my dog around. She always looks good and happy with him. The pictures and text were nice to see her doing her thing at his house.
Matthew and family did a wonderful job watching my dog. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Matthew was always quick with responses to any questions I had. We have used Matthew multiple times and will continue.
Wanted to leave earlier than expected on our vacation. Matthew was available on a short notice. Really helped out for a first time vacay user. Thanks.
Matthew was great! He was able to watch our hounds with some last minute changes to our schedule. He sent us regular photo updates of the dogs throughout the week long vacay. We knew our dogs were being cared for and would leave them with Matthew again in a heartbeat.
Great sitter!
Always a great experience!
Matt treated my dog with love and kindness and even spoiled my Pug. I will definitely use him again.
Wonderful experience. DC was happy to see but was reluctant to leave. Must have had a swell time. I had to use my keywords to get her out of the house. "Wanna go for a ride?" She a sucker for a car ride. She obviously got the the attention and play time she craves. She a people dog and the family seemed enjoy her stay. Couldn't be better than that.

no issues
Wallace had a whole family of humans watching over him and I know he loved that. I really felt like I was leaving him in excellent hands and I know he enjoyed his experience.
Matthew and family did a wonderful job with Miss Annie. She is all poodle and therefore has separation anxiety and is very high spirited... after a day or so she settled down (as much as she can) and when we picked her up she was much more relaxed than if we boarded her at our vet or PetSmart where there are many dogs. They sent us pictures everyday with a report and that helped a lot. We will definitely be using Matthew again!
Great experience!
Matthew is a reliable, punctual, and responsive young man who took great care of our pooch. He provided regular text updates, with attached jpg pictures of our dog. This gave us great peace of mind while we were away. He was very flexible about our drop-off & pick-up arrangements. We unreservedly recommend him. Dogvacay is a great service and Matthew is a top-notch caregiver!
As always Feebee was well taken care of. This is a great family and we are very grateful for the wonderful service they provide. Thank you for taking such good car of our girl! Robert and Darla
Matthew was great! He and his family are very nice, very kind people. They were very thoughtful about Frankie's needs and schedule. And Matthew was so flexible when our schedule changed at the last minute, too. His home and yard were so inviting that Frankie couldn't wait to get inside and explore. It was so nice to know that Matthew was going to be home with Frankie most of the time. Frankie loved his DogVacay. We will definitely use Matthew again. We feel lucky to have found him!
Matthew was great! He was attentive to detail. He was good to our dogs. He was patient with the parents of the dogs, too. Thank you, Matthew
Another great visit for my doggies! Matthew and his entire family do an awesome job caring for my furry friends!
Again wonderful temporary foster parents while we were out of town! Feebee was happy to see us but also very relaxed. Matthew sent us pics while we were gone and she just looked so at home. We cannot say how much we appreciate Matthew and his family for taking such good care of our Feebee when we have to be away. It is just so comforting to know we don't have to worry about her at all !
Thanks again for taking such great care of her.
Feebs Mom and Dad
As always Feebs was well taken care of on her stay with Matthew and family. I never worry about her while she is there and it is so great to have peace of mind when we need a sitter.
Matthew and his family took great care of our little dogs, Sparky and Lucy. They played in the backyard with them a lot, which is just great. I felt very comfortable with this family caring for our fur babies.
Again Matthew and his family were awesome, Feebee was happy and relaxed when we picked her up. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a sitter.
Always a great experience!
Matthew took exceptional care of my dog. I am able to go on vacation and know that he is in great hands.
Matthew and his family were awesome, Feebee had never been left with anyone before so I was really nervous leaving her for so long with someone she had only met once....I was expecting her to be so excited to see us when we picked her up and instead she just kinda looked at me and said " oh Mom and Dad are back, darn I was having a great time" bummer I have to go home! She was so relaxed and content ! I would highly recommend Matthew and he is my first choice anytime I need a sitter in the future.
Feebees Mom
This was the second time that Matthew watched my dogs. It was another great experience!
Matthew took really good care of Yoshi while I was on vacation.
Great experience! Would definitely recommend.
Great location easy to find and very affordable.
Matthew was very patient and flexible with schedules, which I appreciated. His rates were lower than most.
Jazzy warmed right up to Matthew and his family. They were calm and easygoing. Their home was clean and they had a fenced back yard for bathroom breaks. Jazzy was the only animal at their house for the three nights of boarding. Matthew sent me an update during the weekend so I knew how things were going. She was comfortable and happy when I picked her up. I'd use Matthew again next time I need boarding.
The dogs seemed well cared for. We had no concerns.
Great experience. Matthew and his family are great people and were awesome with Charlie. I recommend him highly and am thankful that he was able to take my reservation last minute.
I was caught in a bind and it was last minute but Matthew was great. He was very prompt to respond to my messages and took great care of Maker. Thanks again and would definitely use again in the future.
Our dog seemed to enjoy her stay. She was happy and healthy when we picked her up from Matthew.
Matthew P did a great job again with Z. I know he is in good hands when he is with Matthew P and his family!!
Matthew P was AWESOME!!! I was nervous to leave my dog with anyone because he has separation anxiety and is very needy. Matthew was very attentive and understanding to his needs. I checked in on Zuko a couple times and was always given good feedback. Matthew even sent a couple pictures of him and family members giving my sweet boy attention. I look forward to traveling again with the peace of mind Zuko is in good hands!
