Judy was quick to respond, friendly, and has a lot of experience with taking care of dogs. She sent me photo and video updates during the stay, letting me know how Sophie was doing. I'd highly recommend her!
The pups are always happy to be dropped off with Judy. When we pick them up they look healthy and happy from all the play
Watson just loves going to see Judy and friends at 'the beach' :)
Judy is great with dogs. Lucky always has a good time. I know he is in good hands when he is with her.
Judy was great! I received numerous photo updates while Sam was with her. I will definitely send Sam on vacay here again!
We had to leave our 4 month old puppy for the day and were able to have her stay with Judy and Hunter. We got several photos and a video of her playing and having a great time. I know she was much happier there with the other dogs than she would have been home in a crate. She played and napped and was well taken care of! Thanks Judy!
grizzly was very tired when he returned from ms judy house. so i would guess he played and played. thanks for having him as your guest
Excellent care. Couldn't have been happier with Judy & Hunter!!
I would like to start by saying that Judy and Hunter are excellent. Max (our 6 year old lab) stayed with them for 2 weeks and they took great care of him. He received his food and medication on schedule. Judy sent us regular updates and pictures of him. When Max was a little under the weather, she kept us informed and assured us that if it got worse she would take him to the vet herself. Overall, Max had plenty of outdoor time and also some dog buddies to hang out with. We are very happy about how they took care of Max and would definitely consider them on our next vacay.
Judy's house was excellent! My little pup came home happy. Judy was very accommodating and was able to accept my reservation at the very last minute. We will continue to use Judy as long as she will have us!
Very pleased with the service. Judy and her husband were very nice and their place is truly a pet resort. If we are returning to Atlanta, we will call Judy!
Judy was absolutely wonderful! Our dog stayed with her for a long weekend and came home exhausted from all the fun she had! We received many pictures each day and felt better knowing she was having a wonderful time. We will definitely be using Judy again!
Judy just took care of my 8 wk old puppy and my recently adopted 2 yr old poodle for five days. The experience was outstanding from the minute I first met Judy to picking the dogs up. Judy kept me well informed with lots of pictures and messages. My dogs were clearly loved and cared for as if they were Judy's own dogs.
This is an excellent facility and I will be using it often.
Judy was awesome in every way!! From being patient in planning my dog, Pixie's, last minute stay, keeping me updated while we were away with lots of pictures of Pixie having the time of her life, to being flexible in my pick up time. Pixie had a blast while she was there and made a ton of new friends for fun in the sun and snuggle buddies for when they were ready for a nap. She was right at home and exactly what we wanted - somewhere cozy and where she would be loved and have fun and thats what we got and more!!! We will be back not only for vacation but day-cations as well :) thank you Judy!!!!!!
I had a 3-week out-of-country vacation planned, and really worried about what the best option would be for Watson. He fit right in at Judy's, making friends with her own dogs and the other visiting pack members. The backyard is an oasis of fun and frolic for the dogs, and Watson can curl up at night with his friends on the couch - just like he's at home. I think he had so much fun, coming home was a bit of a let-down for him!
Our pup Fitz had a blast with Judy and the other dogs on vaycay! We will definitely be repeat guests!
Absolutely love Paws In The Sand! They take such wonderful care of our pup and he has a blast while he's there! Judy is always quick to respond and sends great picture updates. We will go nowhere else!
We couldn't be more pleased with Judy and how well she took care of our pup. This was our first time using Judy and we will certainly use her again!
Our dog Jethro had so much fun staying with Judy & her much so that he didn't want to leave! We loved getting the daily emails with updates & pics...thank you so much! We will definitely be contacting you for future stays
Ella's stay with Judy was the best! I wasn't sure she'd come home with us. With a huge yard to play in with her friends and curling up on the couch with her head in Hunter's lap, she was as happy as could be. Judy sent me great photos every day. We know she is well taken care of and feel very comfortable with her staying there. Many thanks!
My husband and I have a 1 year old puppy named Charlie. During the day, we let him run around the backyard and play in our screened in porch attached to our master suite. There have been instances since becoming pet parents in May, where we had to leave Charlie while travelling. Our first choice was always petsmart...but later we found that the price was very expensive for minimal services; Charlie would need to stay in a kennel because he was not neutered.

Charlie stayed at a pet sitter's house for 2 was a little better because the sitter had a backyard, but Charlie spent most of his time in a corner that was closed off (creating a semi-dog cage/ kennel environment ). We were not satisfied.

We are thankful we found Judy on dogvacay!! Charlie was truly having a blast while there for 4 days. Judy shared awesome pics of Charlie making new friends, playing and sleeping like a king! Judy and her husband Hunter ensure the dogs All day long! It's obvious because your dog is fully exhausted from an incredible day of fun-filled activities. Hunter is great with dogs and was able to help train Charlie in just 4 days!! He made us more confident dog parents as he shared some knowledge about Charlie and how well he did during his vacation stay.

Judy /Hunter's set-up allows the other dogs to roam freely through their large backyard (pool and beach sand) to the first level of the house all day long! Charlie immediately made himself at home!
My two dogs stayed with Judy and Hunter for a week and they didnt want to come home! They loved their stay there and we were pleased the updates they sent us daily. I will definitely let my puppies stay there any time and not have a worry about it.

Judy provides an excellent environment for her own dogs and for our dog, Anabel. Annie was worn out by playing so much over the weekend! Judy is a very pleasant and competent person when dealing with humans, also!!
Always have good things to say about Judy and Hunter. It's pretty much the only place We feel comfortable leaving our girls. We always recommend them to our friends and family
Anlsey had such a wonderful time during her stay with Judy. This was our first time using DogVacay and we will definitely be using Judy again in the future. Judy and her husband were so considerate in making drop off and pick up work with our fluid schedule. After speaking with Judy and her husband it was obvious their vast knowledge and love for all dogs.We received updates and pictures daily during her stay. Judy's home is the perfect place for any pup to have an amazing time. Ansley was exhausted when we picked her up. It was such a benefit knowing that Ansley was receiving personal attention, and not just another dog at a large boarding facility. We highly recommend using Judy!!
Once again, Bevo had a wonderful time at "Paws in the Sand." We always enjoy being greeted by a pack of smiling dogs when we pick up Bevo from his Dog Vacay. He'll be back at Judy's when its time for another Vacay.
Judy and her husband did a great job with my boxer! They sent great pictures and he really had a great time. Very nice setup for dogs to play. I would definitely recommend their sevices.
Reese had a wonderful time during her week, sitting in the pool and running around with the rest of the pack. She had to think about whether or not she wanted to go home after all her fun.
Reese loves her time with Judy and Hunter. She always has a wonderful time.
I left my two dogs with them for 2 weeks while traveling in Europe. They sent pictures of both dogs showing all the fun they were having every couple of days. Both Judy and Hunter are very professional and caring for dogs. I would use them again without even looking else where.
Judy and her husband were awesome! We will definitely be back again!
So far all is great. But only been out of the country 2 days. From the pictures both my dogs have found a new home. May not want to come back home with me.
Cappy had a great time. Thanks!
Judy and Hunter took GREAT care of our baby! ;) Samson came home happy, healthy, and more obedient than when we dropped him off. We HIGHLY recommend Judy and Hunter.
Judy provided us and our Holly a great experience. We never enjoy boarding our dog as that usually means she's in a crate for the entire day but with Judy it was like she was right at home. She was able to roam around and enjoy the big back yard whenever she wanted. Judy also sent us pics and updates while we were gone giving us some peace of mind. Holly had so much fun she is still exhausted a day later. Definitely will be going back again.
They kept us informed by pictures and email. I think our English Setter did well. I think the sitter we had was very attentive.
Judy & her husband are a dynamic dual with providing all aspects needed for dogs daily: exercise, boundaries, and love. Their back yard is both spacious and perfect match for my lab mix to sniff and run. They have 2 friendly well kept labs that got along well with my dog. Judy had her hands full with my pup as he was on meds during his stay but Judy followed my feeding instructions and meds. My dog was a little more anxious than normal at first but I could tell that he was given routine and lots of exercise because he slept on the way home. He was excited to return the next morning so I will be glad to see Judy again!
As before, Judy was fantastic with Bella. Thanks!
Judy was excellent with Bella. Her yard is an excellent place for dogs to run around and play together. She introduced her dogs and any guests one at a time so as not to scare Bella as Bella was a bit anxious when we first arrived. Judy sent pictures that evening of what Bella was up to and was quick to respond to messages regarding how Bella was doing. Will definitely use her again!
Judy and Hunter were excellent hosts for our 2 large pups. They were very accommodating and sent us regular updates! Our dogs really enjoyed the house and love they received. We definitely plan on returning for future visits.
Judy and Hunter did a wonderful job taking care of our dogs Chloe and Chelsea. They were extremely flexible with our travel schedule and our pups came home happy, and tired! We are so happy we found Hunter and Judy as this is a fabulous solution for when we travel. They sent daily pictures/videos and updates which assured us that our girls were happy. We can't thank you enough!
Judy and her husband Hunter were great! You can tell they really love dogs... theirs and yours! They are very flexible with the pick-up/dropoff times and Judy sent photos of my dog each day.
we had a great vacation and so did Forrest. he played with their dogs, slept with them and was exhausted when he got home. their home and yard,pool, volleyball court full of dog toys was perfect for our pup. they sent us emails with pix every day.wonderful
We couldn't have asked for a better sitter! Judy was flexible and welcomed our puppy into her home. We will definitely use her again.
