About Peggy

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
In our home the fur kids have never been referred to as our pets, or that they are just dogs. Each one we've had & currently have are family, which opened our hearts to a lot of caring emotions loaded with love, comfort, fun moments & protection because we truly want them to have a happy life.
My husband & I have been married for 23 years & during that time we have had three dogs, all Labradors/Lab Mix. Taylor & Chloe were our first fur kids who are frolicking at the Rainbow Bridge since Feb 2012 & Jan 2013.
Our girls were puppies when they came into our lives & both had a great life here at our home till the ages of 14 (Taylor) & 13 1/2 (Chloe) before it was time to say our painful goodbye's. There's a picture of them up next to our house pictures.
Grace is our current fur child, she's so smart & a sweet loving girl. It's easy to provide affection, love & playtime everyday. She was 3 months old when we met & instantly melted our hearts. Without any hesitation we said well cutie let's get you home!
Her Birthday is in July -
(2016 - 4 years)

Becoming a Host with DogVacay.com & enjoying the opportunity to give more of my affection & great caring nature to other dogs was the best decision. I've provided care to many different breeds both big & small.

I've been a host since March of 2013 & during that time, I've had the pleasure of getting to know some great pet parents & their 4-legged fur kids. The friendships that I've gained with both the parents & the pets is so rewarding in many ways & I'm proud of the trust I've built with people & their fur kids.
My day's are full of happy smiles, playtime, brief photography sessions, wagging tails & an abundance of kisses.
I truly love the service that I provide & your dog will definitely let you know that statement is true. On their second & future trips here the excitement of coming down the street I live on & how they run up to my door is only a couple ways they'll let you know.
Thanks to all my fur friends for telling your parents how happy you are here. It means SO much to me.
Woof!

Grace is always excited to see who's arriving to spend time with us. She likes to look out the window & barks when I tell her they'll be here soon.
Guest dogs are allowed up on the living room furniture because we want them to feel comfortable & allow them to be near us when we are relaxing. We just toss a blanket on the couch to help protect the fabric & all is good. They are even welcome on my bed too, as long as Grace has her spot ... we can make room. Some guests prefer to sleep in their own dog bed in the bedroom, that's ok too.
Toys are around, but feel free to bring your dog's favorite when you come to visit, as well as their food ..(special treats) .. instructions,bed, blanket/crate. Whatever comforts they have in your home can be met when they are with me with things they are familiar with.

Our home has a good sized enclosed backyard for security, potty breaks & playtimes. I like keeping it picked up during the day, stepping in a pile is no fun when the dogs are running & focused on playing. A treat jar sits on the kitchen counter & in the living room. It's funny how they always know where the snacks are. During the summertime, we bring out the kiddie pool so that the 4-legged friends can splash & cool off. They always love to try to retrieve a floating toy in the water.

** Dog's can sense if someone is nice & I am one of those someone's

My Elke stayed with Peggy for the first time last week. I had brought her over a couple weeks earlier for a meet and greet to make sure Elke would be a good fit. Peggy asked all the right questions and had answers for mine. When the time came for Elke to stay with Peggy, she seemed to make herself right at home. I know this because Peggy sent me many photos and updates and even a video of the two of them howling together. I would bring Elke back to Peggy's house in a heartbeat!

Peggy and her husband Bob baby-sat our 20 months old Beagle while we were out of town for a week in August 2016. Since Lucy had never been separated from us, we were full of concern and doubt about the prospect of leaving her in a boarding situation. Our misgivings however quickly melted away when we met Peggy and Bob at their house. Peggy's affection for the dogs is genuine: she never use the word "dog" when talking about them. To her, they all are her babies!! She has a nice house with nice clean deck and well-maintained enclosed backyard for the dogs to play and to rest. We were updated about our baby every day along with photos. For Peggy, doggy care is not a job; it's a passion!!

Thank you Peggy (Bob & Gracie) for taking care of our Mimzie as your own! It was for just one night this time, but it's comforting to know that she settles in so easily with you when we drop her off with you. And she gets to meet other dogs, which for her can be a challenge! Yet you make it work for all of them, because each dog in your care matters the same!! You're amazing!
Thank you again - and we'll see you soon!!

I recently moved from Seattle and needed a new day care as well as an overnight option on occasions.
In the past, I have had good experiences with my other DogVacay sitters, so when looking for someone new I choose Peggy. I emailed her and received a response in minutes; I took my dog Teddy, a 10-year-old goldendoodle to a meet and greet at Peggy's home. We were welcomed into her home, and immediately felt how truly she loves and cares about dogs.
Their home and yard are impeccably maintained; I can rest assured Teddy's in very kind and capable hands!

She is awasome we love it thanks.
Thanks so much for been so caring and awasome person my little one is so fortune to have you as he nanny. So happy with your service thanks.
Peggy was fantastic! Our puppy Jack felt safe and at home for almost the a whole week we were away. She was very good about evaluating not just our dog but the other dogs that would be or were already booked at her place, making sure everyone would get a long. We definitely recommend and will use her again!

Kona's stay with Peggy was beyond perfect. Kona was treated like a member of their family! I received updates and pictures of Kona throughout the visit. So comforting to see Kona enjoying his stay. When we picked up Kona, Peggy invited us in to her home to discuss Kona's visit. Peggy sat on the floor with Kona on her lap (he is 70 pounds) and I could see how much Kona loved Peggy. We feel so fortunate to have met Peggy, Bob and Gracie!

Peggy and Bob were great! Loved communicating while we were gone and getting pics of Our baby! Peggy is easy to work with and truly cares for her fur guests! Our pup is going back soon!
Where do you begin when reviewing someone that allowed you to go and enjoy your own vacation by daily assuring you of your dog's (child's) well-being and them being loved on in your absence?! Because that's exactly what she did for us daily with texts and pictures that she sent. We have never left our Mimzie with anyone except close friends when traveling, and had never traveled for this length of time before. But this time we needed to locate someone for her to board with, and we were scared to death. But upon meeting Peggy and her husband Bob (and their beautiful dog Gracie), we knew instantly our Mimzie would be well loved and taken care of. We will travel again, and can't imagine leaving her with anyone but these wonderful people. And we're looking forward to having them over to our home soon as well, as these are people you meet and want to hang onto as friends! Thank you Peggy, Bob & Gracie!!

We were so nervous to leave our dog but not anymore, we are so happy to have found someone to take care of our beloved furry baby just as we would. Peggy's house is impeccable and full of love!
Peggy and Bob are so wonderful! They took excellent care of my Bailee, and she had a blast with Gracie! We are excited to schedule a next daycare and overnight service.
I cannot say enough to Honor Peggys impeccable , conscientious, heartfelt care of my dear Romeo. One hundred percent dog lover, her house is immaculate and caters to every need and comfort of her adored critters. Her couches are covered with clean blankets so that every dog can find comfort to snuggle on the couch with the family or lay down on the dog beds provided . One can see clearly that Peggy and her husband love to be surrounded by dogs by observing the tummy rubs, attention and caresses they give that absolutely no dog can
resist ; the proof shown by the many happy tails one notices on a simple visit to their house. She and her husband are the warmest, caring, dog loving people I know with their adorable dog Gracie who is gracious with sharing her home.
Not to mention that Peggy cares for your dog twenty-four seven but she is also incredibly responsible tending to every dogs particular needs and will keep you posted by email, photos and text and even phone calls to update your dogs' well being and fun filled day. The backyard is clean and very dog friendly. Peggy will throw balls, plays with the dogs and brings them for walks on a leash. Fresh clean water is provided in different areas of the house and also outdoors and Peggy keeps a detailed record of what each dogs' dietary/ health needs are. Needless to say, I feel 100 percent Confident about my Romeos well-being and safety. My peace of mind and heart Thank God that I found Peggy. She is my saving Grace !

Peggy, Bob and Gracie are all amazing! Our little Zoe had such a blast hanging out with them for the day!
After the meet and greet, I want to vacay with Bob, Peggy and Gracie! I wonder if they have a human rate. They were very accommodating for my last minute request. I had a stressful work trip but knowing that Princess was in a loving, safe, fun home, made it a great trip.

I received daily updates and everyone I worked with wanted to see what Princess was up to next. I was afraid Princess took up residency with them but she decided to come home with me after all. Thanks so much for giving Princess a home while I was away. Love Love Love Peggy!!!

Peggy watched our girls (a 5-ish month old shar pei mix and a 10-ish year old shih tzu) for the day. She made us feel secure leaving our babies with her. And Peggy was kind enough to send me pictures of the girls playing and having a grand time. It is such a comfort and a relief that we have someone we trust to watch our furry babies.
Peggy (and Gracie) are simply amazing!!!!!

Peggy and Bob were able to watch our three dogs for us while our family took a vacation to Mexico for 5 days. Peggy sent us pictures and playful updates the entire time which was great because our 5 year old daughter had a really tough time saying goodbye to them when we left for vacation. We knew Peggy would take great care of the dogs and our daughter's face lit up when we showed her the photos. She and Bob were really accommodating as we were unable to make our first flight back from San Diego so we ended up picking up our dogs at 11:30 at night. We really appreciate the care they took of our dogs and would absolutely recommend them to anyone in need of a dog sitter! Thanks again Peggy and Bob.

Peggy is the best! The home is the perfect vacation spot for our dogs. Our girls loved the day they stayed and had fun playing with Peggy's dog Gracie. This is the perfect DogVacay!
Sorry for the late review! As always Peggy is our number 1! Always helpful with our last minute plans and more than welcoming to our fur baby!! We needed peace of mind while we were out of the house all day so we knew our little guy would be pleased to spend his day being cuddled and loved here!! 5 stars!

Ben had a great time staying with Peggy and her pup Gracie! He spent about a day and a half there, got lots of attention and play time. Peggy was a great host and texted me pictures and updates every couple hours! I highly recommend her and would love to send Ben back next time my wife and I go out of town.

I brought my Sofie to Peggy to spend a day to get reacquainted in preparation for an upcoming longer stay as she hadn't watched her for quite some time. It was her suggestion and a brilliant idea as it put both Sofie and I more at ease for my upcoming 4 day trip. She is always thinking of ways to make the experience as stress free as possible for both the dog and the doggie mom. Thank you!

Once again, Peggy provided a loving, calm and happy place for my little Sofie to stay while I was away for 4 days. Knowing that my slightly neurotic dog is safe and so well cared for, puts me at ease and able to relax into my vacation. I love getting an update and picture each day. Peggy exudes a true love for our furry friends and they know it! Thanks again.

Peggy was a wonderful "mom" to our dog, Marley. Marley was happy from the moment he walked into her home and met her other dog, Grace. Peggy posted daily pictures of him at play, sleeping, eating and going on walks. He was expertly cared for. Peggy is very kind and helpful and we felt very secure knowing that she was looking after him. Her home and outside yard are immaculate and we will definitely use her again!! FIVE PLUS STARS for Peggy T!!!

I am super picky when choosing someone to watch my baby, Archie. Peggy was absolutely great the from the first meet and greet. Archie just spent his first day care with Peggy and her family - she sent pictures and updates throughout the day. Thank you Peggy for providing a safe and fun environment for my little prince.

Peggy and Bob are truly dog people. Kassie Mae loves to come visit Gracie for a sleep over. She jumps from the car when we open the door and runs to the porch trying to get in. I guess that just about says it all.
Can't imagine leaving her with anyone else as long as Peggy continues watching our four legged friends.

Thabk you Peggy for caring!
Peggy takes such good care of my dog when he visits. We were so lucky to find Peggy on Dogvacay. She is simply the best!
Always happy tails!
Peggy took such great care of our old dog Bella. I loved all the updates and was worry free. I knew she was being well taken care of throughout our whole trip. She really makes your pet feel at home and so does her sweet host dog Gracie.
As usual, Fritzi and Ollie received excellent care from Peggy. They get a lot of play time with her dog, Grace, and Peggy and Bob give them lots of love and attention too :)
Peggy,Bob and Gracie were awesome Taki get care of our little guy overnight. My Puppy always has the best time with them and is always happy to see them. He gets so excited when we tell him he is going to see Gracie! I wouldn't recommend anyone else to watch your furbaby. This is the best care you will find!

We couldn't be happier or more thankful that we found Peggy. She was flexible and accommodating and connected right away with our 17 year old dog that has some special needs. She truly loves and understands dogs, and it is obvious that she loves taking care of them. Her home is the perfect set up with a nice, clean, grassy fenced yard. Also cozy inside for naps and playtime indoors. We received regular text messages with photos updating us on his activities -- very comforting when we were 800 miles away knowing he was safe and well cared for. For this first vacay, the whole process was seamless, from meet & greet to drop off and pick up. We feel confident that Max received the best care and attention and we will not hesitate to book another visit next time we have the opportunity. Thank you Peggy!

Peggy was great! She did an outstanding job with my two girls. Her care for them was personal and loving. Within 15 minutes of dropping them off, she texted me with an update. It made me feel so good about leaving them in her care! Peggy continued to text me daily with updates, including photos. I loved it! I was able to relax knowing Josie and Emily were being loved and taken such good care of. This was our first time using Peggy, and her husband Bob, and I would have no hesitation using her again. She was an absolute delight to work with and she took outstanding care of my dogs.

We have a three member pack of little senior dogs and Peggy was wonderful with them! She understood their doggy demands and made sure that the girls were happy. She even kept a worried Mommy from panicking when one of them had tummy trouble. We were kept informed of how they were doing frequently so we could enjoy our stay away. Peggy and Bob will be our primary hosts from now on.

Peggy, Bob and Gracie took care of my little boy while my husband had surgery. They are so wonderful and caring I never had to worry if Puppy was being taken care of. They truly are a blessing to our family and provide us with peace of mind when we need it most. If you are looking a a loving dependable family to watch your fur-baby you absolutely will not find anyone better!

Thank you so much for caring for my doggie. Your flexibility with schedule is very much appreciated. Happy tails!
Another awesome day at Peggy's for Fritzi and Ollie they love it there. It had been a few weeks and they missed her! They're always happy to go there. Thanks again!
Napoleon could not run to Peggy's door any faster! Upon pulling up to the house he knew he had a fun little overnight stay ahead! It was a stormy night but I knew Nap was in safe hands and that he was having a fun time with Grace and a couple other pups. Our little guy has been tired ever since coming home and I know that's a good sign that he had a FABULOUS time with Peggy and Bob! We will only trust this wonderful and caring family with our fur baby.

Having Peggy look after your dog is a true blessing, she is fabulous. Peggy makes connections with each one. She plays, engages, and cares for all of visiting fur friends. I am so grateful to have found Peggy! Best ever!!
Very lucky to have Peggy & Bob look after my dog. I can always tell my dog was happy with his visit.
Fantastic visit at Peggy's place, my dog was very happy.
My Puppy always loves staying with Peggy, Bob and Gracie! This time he spent 3 nights with them as I was out of state on business. I got pictures and updates daily. It was awesome seeing puppy having fun and being very relaxed with them. Peggy had no problem giving him his medicine and letting him follow her around like a little shadow. Peggy loves all her pups and you can tell she loves what she does. She is the only one I trust to take care of my little guy when I cant. We are already planning another sleep over real soon while puppy's daddy is in the hospital. Peggy is such a peace of mind for me and my family to know our little guy is well taken care of by someone who loves him as much as we do. If you are looking for overnight care or just day care you can't go wrong here. She is the BEST and I promise you will NOT find anyone better! Do your self a favor and schedule a meet and greet, not only will you find someone who will take outstanding care of your fur-baby but you will make a new, sincere friend in the process. I can't recommend her enough!

Peggy sent me updates and pictures of my little guy through out the day and all I seen were big happy puppy smiles! You will not be disappointed! She is the only person I trust will my puppy and I recommend her to any puppy parent looking for outstanding care for their fur-babies!

Peggy had our dog ( furry baby) Maui for 2 weeks while we were on vacation. This was our first time been separated. We received an update and picture about our dog everyday, which made us feel at ease. We made a great decision by choosing Peggy to be our dog sitter. We feel good knowing that we have found someone that will take care of our pet as we would.

This was Fritzi and Ollie's second stay with Peggy. Once again, Peggy, Bob, and Grace were excellent hosts. I really love the fact that our dogs get a lot of attention, love, and play time at Peggy's. They also get 24/7 supervision, which is great because it's what they're used to at home with us. And they get to socialize with other dogs because Grace is there and Peggy is usually dog-sitting other dogs at the same time. Fritzi and Ollie love going to Peggy's. It's so much better leaving our pups with Peggy than boarding them at a kennel. We will definitely be using her services again!

Our fur baby, Rocky, has been staying with Peggy during our vacations and weekend trips since November 2013 and we just LOVE her. Rocky is always so excited to go spend time with her, her husband, and Grace. Also, when you choose Peggy you are getting a friend as well as a dog sitter. Seriously, she has a heart of gold. :)

Peggy, Bob, and Grace are excellent hosts! Peggy is very patient and understanding of different dog behaviors. We have a German Shepherd Dog and a Golden Retriever. At our meet and greet, Fritzi, our leash reactive GSD, was being her typical self and barking at Grace. I know Fritzi looks intimidating when barking but Peggy remained calm and invited us in. Once Fritzi was off her leash, Peggy was able to see that she is not aggressive and she and Grace got along just fine. Ollie, being a typical Golden Retriever, also got along with Grace and loved getting attention from Peggy and Bob. We really appreciated all of the updates and pictures that Peggy sent us. Our dogs were getting lots of love and attention and were well taken care of. Peggy was also very accommodating of our daily routine and went above and beyond to help us maintain it. She and Bob were very helpful with the coordination of getting our huge crates to their house. Peggy, Bob, and Grace were awesome and I will definitely be trusting my dogs with them again. Fritzi & Ollie can't wait to go back!

Peggy has been great helping our dog Maui getting to know her before our DogVacay. He came home happy & tired after the daycare. I can go on my vacation knowing that my dog is very comfortable at Peggy's house.
Peggy and her husband took amazing care of our Aniak! Since it was so hot outside, Peggy even went out and bought a kiddie pool so the dogs could cool themselves. She goes above and beyond! Thanks again, Peggy.
Leaving Napoleon with Peggy and Bob is like leaving him with family. This is the sweetest family, Grace included! Adorable updates wash away any fear that my pup is missing me at all. The attention and care the dogs receive here is unmatched anywhere else, words can not describe how happy my pup and I are that we have found Peggy and Bob!

This was Enzo's 3rd time vacationing with Peggy and surely the most challenging of his stays being over the 4th of July Weekend. Peggy was so patient and comforting to our boy who extremely afraid of fireworks. This stay as well as in past visits, Peggy has administered medications as prescribed, groomed, doted on, played with and welcomed Enzo right up on her bed at bed time. Enzo tells us how much fun he has with Peggy when he runs to her front door and is ready for his Vacay!
I know Enzo will be happy to see Peggy again for a 4 day weekend while we head over to Leavenworth.
Lastly, I must compliment Peggy for keeping us informed with updates and with some of the best pictures we have of our boy.
I highly recommend Peggy, trust her completely and would be lost without her!

Napoleon had a paw-some time! Pool time and play time with Grace and Enzo made for a fabulous Friday. As always, Peggy kept me well informed with fun photos and I knew Napoleon was in the best care possible. We look forward to many more fun overnight stays in the future!

Absolutely wonderful! I was provided updates with pictures during the day and I could tell my dog was very happy. Having Peggy take care of your dog when your out of town is the best sense of security, she has an incredible connection to animals. Happy tails wagging.

A wonderful visit for the day. My dog was kept cool during the hot weather and had lots of fun. He was happy to play with Gracie and friends. Thank you for taking such good care of him.
Peggy was AWESOME!!

She truly loves and cares for your furr-family member like they are one of hers. Harley had such a wonderful time playing and being loved, she missed all the fun when we returned home.

Thanks Peggy for such awesome and loving care for our Harley!

Five stars!! Peggy is the best. I will book again and recommend Peggy and Bob to sit your dog
As always Napoleon had a fabulous time! He was able to interact with other sweet dogs under the care and supervision of Peggy. Daily photo updates and little notes about his time create a sense of comfort for me, always knowing he is happy and healthy! Napoleon looks forward to his next overnight stay.

Peggy was fantastic! Lacie had a wonderful time and adjusted to her new surroundings and temporary parents and step sister Grace. I was sent numerous photos of updated activities that Lacie was enjoying along with very humorous comments via my dog-hter. I will definitely be using Peggy's services again very soon. Lacie says woof woof (thank you) to Peggy for her great hospitality.

My dog enjoys being at Peggy's with the other dogs so much, that she reminds me it's time to go after breakfast. She gets really excited when she goes to daycare or overnights at Peggy's.
Peggy did a great job of taking care of our dog for the week we were on vacation. She worked very hard to make sure our dog was welcome and comfortable. We also appreciated receiving pictures and updates while we were on vacation. Peggy has a natural ability to bond with pets, which was reassuring for us. We highly recommend Peggy. She is outstanding!

Every dog smiles at Peggy's!
fur-tastic!
Napoleon, yet again, was so loved and cared for that I knew he was happy and healthy during his stay! Despite my dog's little quirks, Peggy seems to love and understand his needs and attends to them all. I hate leaving my pup but when it's necessary this is the only person I trust!

My dog stands up in the back seat when we get within a couple of blocks of Peggy's house. She can't wait to get there to play, lie in the sun and be with the other dogs.
Amber spends more time with Peggy than she does with me during the week, so it is truly her home away from home and she loves it!

Paw-perfect!
As always, a terrific experience for us as well as our little Kassie Mae. Thanks Peggy.
If you could bundle love and sell it, It would be Peggy's Doggie vacay.
Bitchin' dog party of 4 female dogs this week! Amber loved it!
I needed to book late notice and Peggy was more than accommodating and helpful! Napoleon always gets excited the moment we pull up to the house and is sad when he leaves. I know that Napoleon is in the BEST hands at Peggy's! We already have several bookings ready in the future and I wouldn't want to send Napoleon anywhere else. Wonderful!!!

Happy dog!
Always amazing!
Peggy was very understanding of my last minute daycare request and was extremely accommodating. She made sure all the dogs were having fun and I picked up one happy dog after long day of work. My dog loved his visit, thank you Peggy!
My dog rates Peggy with the highest regard! She loves to go to her daycare with Peggy and is always delighted to spend the night. Peggy's care is by far the best!
It's always such a relief knowing that Peggy is available for us when we plan our vacations. Our miniature schnauzer, Chloe, loves Peggy and she feels so comfortable in her beautiful home. Peggy makes Chloe feel like part of the family. This visit I made the mistake of not packing enough food. No worries ... Peggy took care of it! She's an excellent pet sitter, a devoted dog owner, and if you choose Peggy, you'll never look for another pet sitter again! Thank you Peggy for all of your TLC!

Perfect as usual. Happy dog, extremely well cared for during his visit! Thank you
Doggy day was great, happy tails on pickup!
Fabulous fun visit at Peggy's!
4 Paws Up and tail waggin!
This was the first time my dog had an emergency experience when I was traveling. Apparently, the abscess know I was out of town. Peggy was on top of the situtation and went above & beyond the call of duty to care for my dog. Peggy communicated all the details as we put a plan together to get him into the Vet's office for a surgical procedure. She was attentive to his every need and drove him into our Vet's office for his surgical procedure. And to top it off, she coordinated picking him up, started his medications and closely monitored his condition. When I arrived to pick him up I was given a complete progress report update with necessary medications. I highly recommend Peggy, absolutely the best!

It is the best feeling when your able to have your dog cared for by people like Peggy & Bob. They are amazing, warm, and caring. When we pull up to the house, my dog is excited to be there. And when I return, he is a happy and I can tell he had a fun visit.

Peggy is vigilant and covers every detail of care for her guest dogs. I always feel lucky that I found her!
Peggy is the real deal! She is genuinely interested in every dog regardless of size, age, or need. She caters to them and plays with them . Her home is immaculate. I think she is an earth angel for dogs.
I could never leave my dog at a kennel after having her spoiled by Peggy!
Peggy always goes above and beyond for her furry guests. Your dog's tail will be wagging! I guarantee it!
It is reassuring to know that I can take a break and go somewhere with confidence knowing my dog is sincerely welcomed each time I leave her with Peggy, Bob and Grace! It gives me tremendous peace of mind.
My dog literally dances when she knows it is time to see Peggy, Bob, and Grace! She loves them and so do I!
Super!
I am so grateful to connect with Peggy thru Dogvacay service. My dog is in wonderful care when he visits. He treated like family, incredible host family.
Everyday is a dog party at Peggy's! My dog never wants to go home and always looks forward to going to see Peggy!
Peggy and Bob were very flexible with our unexpected opportunity to travel this winter. 10 days. They are such wonderful people and provide a loving home for our Lola when we need to leave her. We had no worries, and know that Lola was in good hands. Thank you Peggy, Bob and Grace!

Absolutely the best!
Always a pleasure!
Kassie Mae strains at the end of leash to get to the door when we arrive. We are very comfortable that she's taken care of like she was with us, although she can't be. Happy and excited to see us when we arrive but still likes to play with Gracie and the others, one last time before heading home. Can't imagine leaving her anywhere else.
Thanks Peggy.

Wow! There are not enough nice things to say about staying with Peggy. The home is comfortable and safe and Peggy is extremely attentive to all of the dogs needs. Our little Napoleon had a fabulous time with the other larger dogs and did not want to leave. I will continue to send Napoleon here as long as there is room!

Fabulous service, my dog had a wonderful visit.
Peggy is an absolute delight, we are blessed to have her caring for our pet.
We had a very positive experience with Peggy. Our Lola suffers from severe separation anxiety and has a few annoying quirks. Peggy and her husband were very gracious. We received daily updates with some great photos. We just plain did not worry. Lola was happy and calm when we picked her up a few days later.

Peggy welcomed us back. And so we shalk!

Peggy, Bob and Grace are the best! Chloe feels right at home with this wonderful family, and likes to snuggle with Bob on the couch in the evenings, just like she does with her own dad at home. They are so attentive, and we love the photos and notes they send to us while we are away, just to give us peace of mind knowing that Chloe is also having a fun vacation. Grace is a terrific "dog host!" Thanks for being Chloe's "home away from home."

Peggy is a dog Angel! She protects them, guides them and makes them very happy! Merry Christmas to Peggy, Bob and Grace!
Peggy, Bob, and Grace all have a unique gift-they open their hearts, welcome their guest dogs and treat them like family. Having that type of security when you leave your four-paw buddy overnight is priceless. My dog had s blast at his dogVacay and I enjoyed knowing the fact he was with such a gracious family! Thank you.

Thank you Peggy, for the updates during my dog's mini dogVacay. If your dog has any special needs or areas to be alert to, Peggy pays particular attention and will clearly communicate necessary details. Your dog is in great care with Peggy.
Peggy's attitude and interactions with your pet will make it absolutely clear to you why they call this site "dog vacay." When I explained to her that our dog has no teeth, I knew it would be a good experience when her first question was "Oh, what can I give her for treats then?" Sure enough, a few days before we left (which was over a month after our initial meet and greet) Peggy still remembered about the treats and texted me to tell me that she had already purchased the canned pumpkin we suggested. At that moment I realized our dog was going to be more spoiled on vacation than we would. Throughout the trip Peggy texted pictures, updates, and even made us a hilarious gif of our dog with a voice over updating us in first person from the dog's point of view about her stay. She was also completely friendly and flexible about drop off and pick up times, which is so important when traveling. I can't say enough good things about our experience with Peggy. She is a wonderful host and you won't worry about your dog for a second.

My GSP gets excited to visit Peggy's place, tail was wagging as I dropped him off and tail wagging on return. I could tell my dog had a great time, he was happy and calm. Happy tails!
Outstanding customer service, Peggy texted photos and updates on my dogs overnight visit. I appreciate the details so much. My dog had an absolute blast visiting Peggy's place. Resident fur paw friend Grace, was so sweet to welcome my dog into their family. Five star service, thank you, highly recommend.

10 to the 10th power for stars!
I feel SO lucky to have found Peggy (and Bob) to care for my Sofie while I was out of town. Sofie can be very shy and need a lot of time to warm up to people. I was worried that her nervousness might be a challenge for them, but they were awesome! I got great texts and pics each day showing me that she was doing well. They had great patience with her. Because I could tell she was in good hands, I was able to really relax while on vacation! Priceless!

What a delight, to find a person like Peggy to care for my four fur paw best friend. After a meet-and-greet we knew we found a gem, we are so fortunate to find Peggy. The way Peggy interacts with dogs is amazing, she connects with them individually. Thank you Peggy for caring so deeply! Highly recommend!

My wife and I am retired from the health care fields and we have Dexter our dog who is our friend and companion for the past four years. We have never left him with anyone other than family. At the request of our family we looked into DogVacay. We found Peggy through this site. We had visited two other hosts and Dexter was not too happy with the initial visits. When we visited Peggy we were pleased with the surroundings, the cleanliness of the house, the clean water for the pets and overall happy disposition of the pets visiting her.We have had Dexter stay with her on several occasions lasting a few days to several weeks. She has updated us about Dexter when we are away with pictures and emails.We have found her very professional, polite and has taken very good care of Dexter. Dexter has grown quite found of Peggy and looks forward to seeing her when he knows we are going to be gone for a few days. He has been well cared for, well fed and clean when we have brought him home. We will definitely leave him with Peggy again and recommend her without reservation. I rate Peggy very highly and she has been outstanding.

Our first day away from Kassie Mae at her 6 month mark. We found with Peggy and her husband to be a loving couple to watch our puppy. Kassie warmed to them from the first meet and greet, and as we dropped her off she adjusted to their Gracie as well the other guests in no time at all. Kassie is a bit pampered and she chose not to sleep in her kennel this night but found a great resting place between Peggy and her husband.
We recomend her/them highly.
Peggy will be our little girls home away from home whenever we need to leave town.

Always 5 stars!
I wish I could have a vacay as good as the one my dog gets with Peggy!
Amber is always happy with Peggy, Bob , Grace and other guest dogs!
Gotta love the Peggy and her dog parties!
We love Peggy, Bob and Grace!
Peggy LOVES dogs! She warmly invites them into her home and embraces each dog's unique personality. Our dog, Ani, stayed for 10 days with Peggy and her husband, and it was clear from the start that Peggy was going out of her way to make sure Ani was comfortable. She got lots of individual affection, socialization with a couple other dogs including Peggy's own Grace, and security while she was there. We are incredibly thankful for Peggy and how she cared for our dog. We'll definitely ask Peggy to watch Ani again.

Pawsome as usual!
I drive an hour out of my way every morning to bring my dog to Peggy. Yes, it is worth it!
Jubilee enjoyed her visit with Peggy and her other dogs.
Peggy and Bob are the best!! We are so thankful to have found Peggy. She is like a second mommy to the boys. They just love her.
Peggy and Bob are the best!
We were so happy to find Peggy through a friend of ours and now we know we'll have someone to depend on when we travel. She was very conscientious about our dogs care and we felt very comfortable leaving her in Peggy's care.
Dearest Peggy, Bob and Grace. We love you. We left our little Yorkie sweetheart, Lucy, with you for over 2 weeks ! Every day you sent me a picture and little "journal" of Lucy's day. Each night we looked at the cute picture and little story and it made separation so much easier to bear. She got to meet new doggie friends, take walks, cuddle with you ....and she and Grace were just so cute together! You treated our baby just as though she was your own treasure. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ! Terry, Chyrl and Lucy

Milo always loves going to Peggy's and it's great for my wife and myself because we don't have to worry about our dog at all he's at home with Peggy
2nd time leaving our dog with Peggy, and am very happy. Our dog loves it there, she gets lots of love and play time. Peggy and her husband Bob are wonderful people.
Peggy is the best! Her caring is unsurpassed. Eddie could not be in better hands. He is excited & happy when he sees your driveway. Thanks for all you do.
I realize this is a bit late for our review, however we want share just how wonderful, caring, and willing to go the "extra several miles" Peggy is. Our wonderful dog ended up getting sick while we were gone, we were called immediately. Peggy took our Milo to the vet, gave him medicine and even bought over the counter medicine to make sure he was taken care of. I can't imagine having our dog stay anywhere else. Peggy is truly the best we love her as does our dog!

When we met Peggy, we knew we had an auntie for our boys. Ajax and Pluto feel totally at home with Peggy and her family. You can tell by the five star tail wag when they show up at her door.
Peggy is very accommodating and willing robe flexible with my needs and Amber's needs. She even allows Amber to bring her oversize golden retriever stuffed toy that looks like a real dog along for daycare and overnight stays. It's almost like getting a two for one LOL!

5 stars plus!
Left our pooch Abi with Peggy T and I am beyond thrilled with how well it went. We were extremely nervous because our dog is very timid around new people and larger dogs. Peggy, her husband Bob, and their dog Grace were calm, patient, and welcoming to us and our dog. It didn't take long for them all to become best buds. Peggy was great with updates and photos of the dogs playing together, or sitting on her lap, or taking naps which put us at ease knowing it was going so well. She even let our dog sleep in bed with her! A true dog lover and a great person. We came back from our 3 day trip feeling like we had new friends. We will 100% be using Peggy for all of our future dog sitting needs.

Peggy is truly the best dog sitter I could ask for. I've started referring to her as his adopted grandma. I know that whenever I leave Rocky with her he will be safe, happy, and spoiled. I've stopped worrying about him completely which is a tough feat for me. If you need someone kind, knowledgable and caring to watch your pup Peggy is the one for you.

No matter where I go, or what I have to do, I can rest assured that Peggy is taking great care of my dog. She is very conscientious and I just love the photos she sends.
Excellent!
Happy!
Super!
Peggy is an outstanding host & she took great care of our shy dog Eddie - thanks
Paws up!
Thumbs up!
Nobody does it better!
Awesome!
Pawsome!
Always a 5 star experience!
Whenever we go on vacation or take a weekend away we always leave Rocky with Peggy. I am so glad we found such a wonderful, kind, and gentle host. I never worry about Rocky when he is with Peggy. She gives him the love and attention he needs and handles his high energy well. He is always happy when I drop him off and pick him up. Peggy is very good about sending updates and pictures. I don't think I could leave our little buddy with anyone else. Rocky has adopted Peggy as his second grandma. ;)

Super! What a difference in attitude my dog has after being at Peggy's. She is a happy girl!
Peggy T. (Paws Are The Best, Lakewood) was simply fantastic! This was our first time using this service, and we met with several prospective sitters. However, when we met Peggy and her husband, we knew that they would be perfect for our miniature schnauzer, Chloe. Peggy is a dog lover, and she puts that love and enthusiasm into all of the pets who are lucky to spend time with her. Chloe can be tricky, as she's a picky eater. Peggy knew just how to give her the right attention and direction to ensure that Chloe was well cared for. Peggy and her husband welcomed Chloe when she wanted to sit beside them in the evenings and snuggle. Chloe got some amazing TLC, and we saw that with the daily updates from Peggy. Grace (Peggy's resident fur baby) got along great with Chloe. Peggy's home is very warm and inviting, and her fenced back yard is a perfect play place. The area surrounding her home is very safe, as she lives at the end of a cul-de-sac, so there is not much traffic. We will definitely use Peggy again when we need either daycare or overnight pet sitting. Thanks Peggy!

Amber was happy top see me when I picked her up, but she is also happy when I bring her to Peggy!
If I could afford it, I would board my dog with Peggy every day that I work. My dog comes home happy and rested. I don't have to worry about her aging bladder when she goes to doggy daycare. Peggy is the best!
I always feel confident leaving my beloved dog with Peggy.
Awesome as always!! Rufus loves it there.
This was my dog's first overnight with Peggy. My dog was happy to see me when I picked her up, but I know that she felt relaxed and safe with Peggy. She ate all her food, and slept by the bed at night, which indicates that the dog is not stressed out. I like knowing that Peggy is going to give my dog the attention she needs and the reassurance I need to leave her.

Believe me, you can trust your precious friend with Peggy and her husband. What lovely people ! My little Lucy weights 4 1/2 pounds.....how cute that she and Gracie (see her pics on Peggy's profile) loved each other ! This was a fantasic experience for Lucy. She hasn't been around other dogs. Peggy sent me pictures and texts every day ! I was able to spend the much needed time away I needed with my sweetheart....and not stress over Lucy. Peggy has a beautiful home and a warm and loving personality. Her husband is just as delightful. Thank you so very much Peggy ! Love and kisses from Lucy and Chyrl :)

Peggy is very conscientious about meeting Amber's needs. My dog is a senior and is very attached to me, but she ran right up to Peggy's door today on her second day care visit. Peggy sends me updates on Amber while I'm at work, that is very reassuring. I am so happy that I found a loving dog-centered home for my dog while I am away. We are going to do our first overnight with Peggy thus weekend while I entertain guests and I'm sure my dog will be loved.

Peggy is one of a kind dog sitter. I am very picky about the care of my dog. BUDDY is a friendly dog but he has never treated another woman like his second mom. Thats Peggy for you. Im actually having anxiety myself since my job required us to relocate...im dreading having to interview and compare the candidates to the wonderful experience she gave me. She is therapeutic, gives medicines, updates with pics, and as well behaved friendly dogs. Buddy even bounded with her husband. WE WILL MISS YOU AND WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU. XOXOX

Rufus had a wonderful overnighter! He was so happy to see Peggy, her family and the two puppies. He loves his visits!!
Rufus had a great first day with Peggy and her two dogs. He was comfortable and happy. It was nice to get a photo and text during the day. Even though My dog is older, I know he had fun playing with her younger dogs-- I've never seen him quite this tired! Looking forward to his next visit.

Peggy is wonderful. She has a kind gentle soul and her love for dogs is more than obvious. I have no worries when I leave my dog Rocky with her. I would recommend her to anyone.
Peggy is great
Peggy has become a great fit for my dog. Her homephome gives Buddy the outlet to excercise, socialize, and maintain his regular routine and source of love. Peggys willingness to accomodate Buddys unique anxiety needs in the beginning of his stay allowed him to transition to her home and family when he is away from me. This meant a lot to me and showed me that she indeed is special herself. Now Buddy runs to her when he see her and doenst have time to worry about me leaving. I am for ever thankful to God that we found such a special reliable nanny. (And nobody else can have her because she's all mine ;)

Our dog is very attached to us and has had his best friend move and his big brother has gone to heaven. He goes everywhere with my husband. His first visit with Peggy was great and when he went back the next week he walked right in with Peggy. She really cares about what she does and understands that our dog is really our last "kid" at home and making him feel at home in her home is wonderful!

It was great knowing that Peggy was taking good care of our dog Nestle her dogs got along great with nestle and we enjoyed the picture updates we received we would definetly take her to her again
Once again, we found Peggy to be the best sitter we could ask for. Our little dog, Sparky, always enjoys his visits. Even though Peggy as to larger dogs, they are great playmates for the smaller Sparky and he loves to have time with his "friends". Thanks Peggy for taking such good care of our pet so that we can enjoy our time away. :}

Peggy is the BEST!!!! We never worry if our little dog is getting great care and plenty of attention. We are so glad we found Dogvacay and SUPER glad they have Peggy as one of their hosts. Thanks for everything you do Peggy!
I would recommend Peggy to anyone. Her house is welcoming and her two dogs are well trained, loved and living the life. My dog, Bane the Doberman, truly enjoyed his stay. I do not like leaving him but I knew he was being well cared for. Peggy sent me many daily pictures of my puppy to easy my aching heart. When I picked him up he was excited to see me but I can tell he did not want to leave his new friends.

Peggy accommodates each and every dog to make them feel at home. She keeps order in her house and in a confident handler. I am taking my dog back to Peggy's in two weeks for a two week stay. During Bane's visit he actually thought he was on his own vacation.

I feel safe knowing he is happy and welcomed as part of the family. One of my favorite things is that her house is amazingly clean and doggy safe.

Thank you so much Peggy, see you soon.

Im so glad I discovered Peggy through DogVacay! Peggy cared for our dogs Dodger and Barrika for the last 2 weeks. I was concerned before I left, because I had never left the dogs for that long. Peggy was very open and reassuring and a real pleasure to work with from the start. She let me stop by twice with my dogs before our trip so I could feel comfortable about the set up with her dogs. ( Her dogs, Tank and Grace, are very sweet) I picked up the dogs today, and they are healthy and happy! Its like they truly had a vacation of their own!
I highly recommend Peggy as a host.
Thank you Peggy!

This was the BEST way to leave Sparky while we went on vacation. To know that he was being loved, as well as taken care of. Peggy was GREAT!!! The meet and greet was a wonderful time as well as the time Sparky spend with her. We will do this again for sure!
