Brian and Yui are just really NICE people. They did a great job with my mischievous black lab this past weekend and watched him for 3 days and 2 nights!! They also sent me pictures and videos of him every day we were gone. Highly recommend them.
Can't say enough great things about Yui and Brian. They really care about your pet. We got daily pictures and updates on our dog, Boo! Will definetly use them again, many times.
Brian and Yui are a super nice couple and took great care of our pups, Cole & Bella, over the Thanksgiving holiday. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in search of a great home away from home for their babies!
Brian & Yui helped me while I was unable to take care of my dog by being flexible to MY schedule and loving my dog!
Excellent service.!
The dogs were happy and well taken care of. I felt very comfortable leaving them in Brian and Yui's care.
Brian & Yui were awesome!
We felt very comfortable leaving our Saydee.
Yui sent us photos regularly and let us know
how our baby girl was doing throughout her stay.
I highly suggest you giving them a try!
We will deffinitely be back!
thanks again!
Robyn & Ken
Very happy with Brian & Yui and the care they gave my Holly. They kept me in the know with pictures and video and our dog did not seem upset with us when we returned. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
Brian and Yui were excellent!! Millie was
Extremely happy when we dropped her off and when we picked her up! They sent multiple pictures during her night stay. Felt completely comfortable leaving her and will definitely use them
Again!! Thanks so much!!!!
Yui H is great!! Our dog Riley loved her. Riley was very scared and nervous to stay with someone other than her family. She has never been away from us. Yui H made her feel like one of her family with special treats and walks. We loved the daily photos of Riley that you sent. Thank you so much!!! Would definitely recommend you to anyone!!
Roxy absolutely loved her visit here! Will definitely use Brian and Yui again! Roxy was at ease and had such a great time.
This is by FAR the best boarder for my dog that I have ever used. From the minute I met Brian and Yui they gave off the vibe that they love dogs, they do and it shows. I got multiple emails of pictures and videos of Skipper at the park, playing with Yui, playing with their dogs, chasing balls and generally have a great time. It eased my mind knowing that Skipper was having fun. When we picked him up, he fell asleep within 4 minutes of getting in the car. He was worn out playing. I highly recommend using this couple. I know that this is where Skipper will be going from now on.
The best! Love Brian and Yui!
Awesome as always! We love Brian and Yui and so does our dog Buddy. He had so much fun.
Wonderful experience! I will definitely be bringing my Annabelle back :)
My dogs had a blast ♡♡ They took them to dog park which my dog loves. My dogs seem really comfortable and enjoy. They didnt seem nervous without me at all
Always 5 stars! If we could give 10, we would. Once again, we had a family emergency and needed to have both boys in care. Thank goodness for Brian and Yui having an open calendar for the few days we needed. There is never a worry when the boys stay there. They get so much love and attention and really enjoy Mango and Zara, too.
Thanks for another wonderful stay!
Brian and Yui were able to accommodate us last minute. They sent us pictures, which made leaving him not so bad. Hans absolutely loved Brian (Yui was out of town). We will definitely use them again!
As always, Brian and Yui are the best with taking care of Tucker! Additionally, Tucker's BFF's are their doggies Zara and Mango!
Everything went great loved the day to day pictures
Brian and Yui! Fantastic as always. Buddy loves them and so do we! Thanks!
Just Great...Saki had a blast...So glad we found Brian and Yui...Really Appreciate the awesome care of our Saki...
As always, Buddy was very happy staying with Brian. Yui was not there for these few days but they are both wonderful with him and he goes there happily and we rest easy knowing he is in good hands. He even made a new doggie friend!
I would rate an overall 5 if it could go higher I would. We were very pleased. Really love the concern they have for our pet. Loved getting the pictures and updates. Was great to see the concern for his well being and the care for his needs. Saki seemed to really enjoy his stay.
Brian and Yui made me feel welcome the first time I met them. I liked receiving daily updates with pictures and videos of my dogs. I was very pleased with our first experience with DogVacay and will use Brian and Yui again.
Once again, our boys had a wonderful stay with Brian & Yui and Mango & Zara, along with various other doggie visitors. A family medical emergency resulted in us requesting an extended stay which, thankfully, fit into their schedule. Brian and Yui go over the top and out of their way to make our guys' stay so easy. They are our go-to sitters always! We love them like family!
I can not say enough great things about Brian & Yui. I experienced an untimely death of my brother at the 4th of July weekend. Even though they were booked, they made room for my Lucky dog in a moments notice. This is the 3rd doggie vacay Lucky has had with their family. Lucky loves Zara and Mango and also gets along really well with any of the other dogs they might be watching at the time. When we arrived at Brian & Yui's home to drop Lucky off for the week he immediately started wagging his tail. If you read my previous review you will see that my baby had severe anxiety issues about being away from his mommy...not anymore :) They have also helped me with different dog foods to give to my picky dog food eater. I love the great pics, videos and comical texts that will make you laugh and smile even through the hardest times. Lucky will always stay with his 2nd set of parents anytime we are away.
Bailey had such a wonderful stay with Brian and Yui! We loved seeing all the pictures and videos. It was apparent that she was treated quite well during her week long stay! We were extremely pleased with our first experience with DogVacay. We would highly recommend Brain and Yui for your pet's stay5
Yui is always accommodating and always has activities for our dog. We have no worries at all when we drop Holly of at Yui's.
Kira had a great time with Brian & Yui!!! They sent pictures and videos of her everyday! It really made being away from her easier. I will be using them again and again! Thank you Brian & Yui for taking such good care of her!
They are awesome -- Buddy loves them and so do we. We would use them every day for a "play date" if we could afford it! Thanks!
Our Ruby had a wonderful time with Brian and Yui! We got twice daily updates with pictures and videos and we could see that she was having a lot of fun on walks, in the dog park and at their home.
Ruby clearly got the attention, companionship and structure that she is used to, and she had a smooth transition back to being home. Thanks!!
Brian and Yui are the best! Our dog, Buddy, just stayed with them while we went to our son's wedding in St. Petersburg, FL.

We didn't have to worry one second! We received daily updates, pictures, videos, and the nicest notes to let us know how he was doing. It was obvious he was having a fantastic time -- I was worried that he wouldn't want to come home with us! Thank you, Brian and Yui! - The Pachecos
Always a five star experience for our boys with Brian, Yui, Mango and Zara! This was a longer than normal time away for me and there were never any worries about the love and care Scooter and Berkeley received. The updates, photos and videos are so welcome and we love that they get visits to the dog park. Yui's homemade doggie meatballs are a huge hit, too!
We are thrilled that we found Brian and Yui!!
Brian and Yui were so nice and took extra special care of our Dog. Yui makes homemade doggie meatballs, took all the dogs to the bark park and updated us three times a day. I had no worries while out of state.
Can't say enough. They sent us videos and photos of our two knuckleheads. They were very accommodating because we had travel issues.
Seamus had a mini vacation from Sissy, because Sissy had another buddy to play with. It was a Win... all the way around. Will be making reservations again soon.....Loved finding out that a good friend also uses them. And the liver treats, well I didn't eat them but they loved them.
Kona had a great stay with Yui and Brian. Yui was really laid back and didn't seem to have any reservations about hosting our 75 lb German Shepherd without a meet and greet. We even got photo and video updates with a takeaway photo print! We would definitely have Kona stay again!
Brian & Yui are wonderful hosts for a doggie vacay.
They took my Lucky dog, who we adopted and has separation anxiety about being away from his mommy. This was the first time he has been away from me since we got him a year ago. I received several updates, photos and videos of him enjoying his stay. This took away all my fears of leaving him for the first time. When I arrived to pick him up I could tell how he had bonded especially with Yui. I am already booking a 5 day 4 night stay in a few weeks so Mommy can have a vacation as well. I can rest assure that Lucky will be in good hands and treated with love, respect and spoiling (sharing their bed, eating special food, walks on the trail, etc..) I highly recommend Brian, Yui, Zara and Mango to make your pet feel at home.
I had such a great experience with Brian & Yui. I have two dogs and one of them is extremely anxious when he is in new situations and with new people. It's been almost impossible for me to board him in a kennel or even have pet sitters come into my home. We did a meet and greet and although my dog was anxious, the home environment was so welcoming and Brian was so good with him that I felt comfortable setting up a time to leave my dogs overnight with them. When I showed showed up to drop them off, Yui was there and my anxious dog took to her right away, which made me feel great. My other dog loved them both instantly. While I was gone, they sent me texts with photos and videos of my dogs. The overall experience exceeded my expectations and is like leaving your dogs with trusted family members instead of a kennel. I highly recommend Brian and Yui. I will be using them again!!!
Carter stayed with Brian while I was visiting family over the Thanksgiving holidays. I felt very at ease leaving him in his care because he seemed very attentive, knowledgeable, and understanding of making sure Carter felt safe and secure while I was away. Though Carter was very happy to see me return, I could tell he had a blast playing with the other dogs.
We were lucky that Brian, Yui and gang were available at a moments notice (emergency). Tucker (as always) loves staying here. We're always very happy knowing Tucker is well taken care of when we're gone.
Tucker LOVES Brian, Yui, Mango and's always a "dogvacay" when he stays with them! We take Tucker to them whenever we're out of town and if they're available too.
From the moment I met Brian at our meet and greet, I knew Dash and Gracie would be in good hands. He and Yui are extremely friendly and I felt really comfortable leaving my fur babies.
Everyday I recieved video and picture updates, twice a day, and messages letting me know how things were going. The dogs were walked, taken to the park, given special treats, and treated like they were their own!
I believe they truly love animals, otherwise they wouldn't have allowed my babies to sleep in bed with them! I can't thank them enough and will definetly use their services again.

Tucker LOVES staying with Brian, Yui, Mango and Farah. They're great with taking care of Tucker. So great that he doesn't want to leave. Thank you!
Thank you so much! My fur babies loved their stay. I enjoyed the daily videos and pictures updating me on their activities. I will definitely bring my babies back for another vacay.
We couldn't be happier with job Brian & Yui taking care of Rosie. We would and have recommended to other dog lovers Thanks very much
This was Selena's 2nd stay with Brian and Yui. They were outstanding. They sent me updated pictures and videos. My little diva Selena had a wonderful time with them including Zara and Mango. I highly recommended them. They are the best host ever.
Brian and Yui and their extended dog family and friends were excellent hosts. Our dog Misty is an only-dog and hasn't been exposed to other dogs for long periods of time. Because of that, along with her being in a new place and being (seemingly) deserted by us, we were pretty nervous about leaving her with anyone. Brian and Yui put our fears to rest during a Meet & Greet, and we left town feeling very comfortable with our decision. We knew that not only would she be safe, healthy and supervised, but she would also be loved and cared for--certainly not lonely!

Still, every so often on our trip, we'd start feeling a little guilty. Then we'd get a video of Misty running around in the dog park or stretched out on the sofa with the littler dogs cuddled around her.

It is very apparent that Brian and Yui are committed to their roles as canine caretakers. We couldn't be happier with their care of our dog. So glad they're affiliated with DogVacay or we would never have found them!
The Roys
Brian and Yui are great! Bailey is nervous around new friends and in new places, and Brian took the time to slowly introduce her and make sure she was comfortable. Pictures and video updates eased my worry while being away, and Bailey absolutely loves the delicious homemade treats that were sent home with her! Would definitely recommend.
Our boys had another wonderful fun-filled stay with Brian, Yui, Mango, and Zara. The photo and video updates are a fun link between our guys and us. Brian and Yui will love your dogs as much as you do and the care and attention is obvious. We even went home with a bag of Yui's homemade treats!
There is no doubt they are our go-to sitters!
Our puppy is a little hesitant and shy at first, regardless the hosts being very welcoming and friendly. Our puppy is quite energetic and considerably large, but without a doubt, she was in good hands. Brian and Yui overall were excellent hosts and I would recommend their services.
Our boys had another wonderful stay with Brian, Yui, Mango, and Zara! I really enjoy the daily updates and photos and always have a good laugh over the antics of all the four-legged kids!
Brian has gone well beyond the expected care by making comfortable accommodations for our Berkeley who now has to be very careful with jumping and stairs.
Thank you SO much, Brian and Yui, for the loving care you give our babies!
Seamus was a happy little boy. He was his same old self when we picked him up. That is a good sign. He wasn't nervous like he has been in the past, or depressed. We will use Brian and Yui again. The fact that they treated him like one of his own.....makes a world of difference.
This was Lindsey and Ellie's second stay. They were happy puppies when we picked them up. We also received updated photos while we were gone. Brian and Yui are the BEST!!!!
Rosie is a dog that requires a great deal of exercise. Yui and Brian did wonderful job with this.
Rosie really enjoys her visits to their home. We would recommend Brian and Yui to any dog owner,
We are very pleased with how they handle Rosie.

Bill & Eileen
Have used Brian & Yui before and I will continue to do so. They are outstanding.
What a fabulous couple of weeks away...for all of us! The humans had no worries about the care our babies were getting and our babies had a more than wonderful stay with Brian, Yui, Mango, and Zara! The dogs' daily medical and supplement needs were met along with walks in the park across the street and visits to the nearby dog park. We received a constant stream of photos and videos that made us so happy that our guys were well taken care of, and several that were just laugh out loud funny! We have no doubt that we will be using Brian and Yui again! Thanks so much!!
Wish we could give more than 5 stars! Our babies had a meet & greet with Brian and Yui on Monday and a test overnight on Thursday. Clearly, they had a blast because we are home now and they are exhausted from having so much fun. They got along well with Mango and Zara, who are so friendly and we are happy the girls didn't mind boys in their home! We highly recommend Brian and Yui...the guys got so much love and attention and were treated just like members of their home.
No question we will use them again. In fact we are checking our calendar now to set up the next visit. Thank you so much Brian, Yui, Mango, & Zara!
Lindsey and Ellie had a great time with Brian and Yui. We loved getting email photo updates on how much fun they were having. It is great having peace of mind that our furbabies are well cared for while we are away. Thanks so much!
Our third stay with Brian and Yui was great! When go to their door and tails start wagging I know they enjoy being there. They will come and stay again!
They are great!! They took care of our Leo like he was their own. They updated us with pictures and videos. We definitely will use them again. If you want your dog to have a great time you will use Brian and Yui.
I am very pleased with how Brian and Yui did with my dog Sasha. They sent pictures, videos and updates on how she was doing every day. From those she seemed very content and happy. They did a great job. She stayed over the Christmas break and they gave her some yummy treats for Christmas and helped her open the stocking I had left for her as well. They took her on walks in the park that she just loved. I highly recommend them.
This was the first time we've used 'dogvacay' and the first time we've ever left our 1 year old pup with anyone, so we were a bit apprehensive. As far as the 'dogvacay' service, it's excellent.

Brian & Yui are the best sitter's we could of hoped for. Our pup is a small 8 pounder and he felt right at home with Brian & Yui's small doggies. We were gone for about ten days and regularly got updates from Brian & Yui (email's, pictures and text messages) which gave us the reassurance that our pup was in good hands. I would highly recommend Brian & Yui and I will definitely use them again. Thanks Brian & Yui.
There the BEST ! They took such good care of Ryder and Beanie. They felt right at home the minute we arrived. I will use them again. They REALLY take care of your pet as if it were there own. RD
Brian and Yui did an excellent job keeping my sweet Diva Yorkie, Selena, whom was only 5 months old and just 2 lbs. They socialized her with her two dogs, and now Selena has two new BFFs (Mango & Zara). They even took daily pics and sent them to me so I could see how she was doing. I highly recommend them and plan to use them in the future.
They took wonderful care of my two dogs. We left with homemade treats. I will leave them there again
The ONLY problem you may have leaving your dog with this couple is it may not want to come home!!! Wonderful home; wonderful pets of their own; and amazing care of your animal! This is the first vacation I have ever had that I literally did not worry about my dog even once (and that says a lot for the protective dog owner that I am)... When you first meet the host couple, you will feel a sincerity that makes you comfortable to leave your dog in their care. And many email pictures & movies to show how well your dog did without you....
Brian and his wife were great with our puppy Blitzen. We had to set up daycare on short notice, and they responded very quickly and got it set up for us. They have two dogs and one of them got along with Blitzen right away. Their other dog was slow to warm up to Blitzen, but in the end, they all got along well. I would recommend them to anyone looking for someone to take care of their dog.
