About Beverley and Chip

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are part of the original group of DogVacay hosts that started with the company in 2012. We are at home during the day and we have all the available hours in a day to care for your fur kids. A large fenced yard of nearly an acre that is perfect for a dog vacation.

We structure our time around the pups each day and pup parents are so appreciative, we have over 60 repeat customers.

We will not accept aggressive dogs or dogs that show any tendencies towards bad behavior with other dogs.

We are ideally situated, three miles from Old Town Alexandria, six miles from Mt. Vernon and 10 miles from Washington DC.

We adore dogs and feel special that we are able to look after and love them while their parents are away.The pups have the run of the house, we are tenants.

We try to limit our guests to four per day. We are particular with the breeds that we pair with other breeds and try to limit our intake of large dogs to one per visit. We will inform guests at the time of booking what other dogs we will be hosting with their pet so that they feel comfortable with the guest list.

During warmer weather they are free to roam inside and out and they love our routine and space. They sleep in human beds with us, if allowed. We never crate dogs and will only do so if requested by the owners.

Rates and Times:

Pick up and drop off is 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.

If a canine guest is dropped off before 10:00 AM and picked up after 3:00 pm, we give you four hours at no charge as a late check out. After 3 PM we will charge our daily boarding rate of $25 for that day.

Major holidays and the three days immediately before and after the holiday will be billed at a rate of $50 per day.

Puppies under two years of age and elderly dogs might have higher rates and will be taken under consideration.

Please include your drop off and pick up times in your booking request and check with us for availability even if our calendar is marked full.

We have a general pet questionnaire and a policy form which we will e mail to you that should be brought back when you drop off your dog.

We would love to meet you!

As always, Bev and Chip gave our boys an amazing stay. Aside from having a perfect home for hosting our pups, they are terrific people. You can't do better!
They were great! Rusty really seemed to enjoy staying with them. Definitely recommend!
My fur-kid Derby enjoyed another (2-nights) stay with Bev and Chip. He loves playing in the big backyard, and socializing with their poodles Xolani, Arabia and other guest dogs. As always, he looked very happy and relaxed in Bev's photo updates. Bev and Chip are extraordinary Dog Vacay hosts. Derby loves all the pampering he receives and I found a small bag of treats in Derby's bag, once we arrived home. Finally, I can leave Derby and feel assured he will be happy and safe.

We just moved back to the DC area and were so excited to book a Dog Vacay with Beverly and Chip once again! Our dog was glad to be back, too. He definitely remembered his old friends.
Beverley and Chip couldn't have been better hosts for our dog. They have a beautiful yard/home and are dedicated dog lovers which is apparent from the moment you meet them. Our dog, despite being a 60 lb pitbull, can be very nervous and timid when we aren't around him - Beverly and Chip couldn't have been sweeter - they were patient with him and tailored their approach to make him feel comfortable, as well as sent us an email with pictures so we knew how he was doing. We were so happy to know our dog was with someone who cared about him and would love to use them again in the future!

Absolutely wonderful!!!! Great people, treated our dog like a queen. Loved the emails and picture updates. Never worried once about her the whole time we were gone. Highly recommend!
This is George's home away from home. He loves being with Bev and Chip and their two dogs. He loves their hospitality and their great backyard. He is treated well there and we look forward to bringing him back another time.
Thank you!!
We were out of the country for an extended period of time, but we never worried for one second! Bev and Chip take wonderful care of our pup!
A quick trip, but always great to know that our baby is being well taken care of!
Fabulous!
Always perfect!!!
Bev and Chip were excellent caretakers for our two dogs. Traveling out of the U.S., we loved receiving daily pictures and email updates on the dogs. They played in the yard with other dogs, played in the hose, played fetch with balls, and had nice rest and relax time! The hot weather of July is a challenge to keep dogs cool, yet exercised. We will absolutely be using them in the future! Thank you Bev & Chip for sharing your heart and home.

Beverley and Chip were amazing! They sent daily updates and pictures of Buzz who seemed to be having a better vacation then we were. Beverley and Chip even sent Buzz home with a card and jerky to remember them by. We will definitely be sending Buzz to stay with Bev and Chip again in the future!

Let us count the ways we love Bev and Chip! Our pup had the most amazing doggie vacay!! Bev and Chip truly love the dogs and provide them with safety, love and wonderful companionship while you are away. Past boarding experiences left our pup depressed, but this was a complete 180 and our pup was happy, content and tired from all the games of fetch upon pickup! It was the best feeling! We cant wait to stay again!! Thanks Bev and Chip!

I could not have been happier with how Bee's stay went with Bev and Chip! I fully trusted her being there, and knew she was in great hands. Bev sent pictures and updates daily, and it was so great to see how much fun Bee was having! I loved seeing her with her "pack" and knowing that she was also spending her time with other dogs and having a great time. Bev and Chip really are the best. Nicest people and take such great care of the dogs. I will definitely use again and again!

Bev & Chip are fabulous! My dog loves being here so much. He doesn't look back when I drop him off and sometimes I think he does not want to leave. I travel a lot so it is great piece of mind to know he is well taken care of and loved when he stays with Bev & Chip. Thank you! Teri

I cannot say enough good things about Bev and Chip. My dog Molson can be quite a handful to deal with. Bev and Chip went above and beyond to meet all of her needs. I would without a doubt recommend them.
Bev and Chip always do an amazing job, and this stay was no exception. We had to be out of the country for 10 days, and it was such a stress relief to know that he was well cared for. As always, we received frequent (and often funny) updates. Highly recommended.

Molly had another wonderful time staying at your home. Thanks again Bev and Chip for welcoming her and taking good care of her. We never have to worry whenever Molly stayed with you. See you soon. Smile
Thanks Bev and Chip for taking care of our two dogs. They always have a good time with you. Thanks again.
Bev and Chip are the most caring and kind people I know. They make Yoda feel right at home, and he loves being there!
Thank God for Bev and Chip, they allow owners of dogs to travel and feel comfortable about leaving their beloved dog. Bev sent me an email and photo everyday with fun facts about our Rudy. We feel Rudy was well taken care of and would not hesitate in traveling again as long as there is Bev and Chip.
They also have a great fenced yard.

Bev and Chip are excellent dog care hosts. Yoda loves to go there because he has fun with their dogs, and he is allowed to feel at home inside and out. I don't know what I would do without them.
Bev and Chip are simply amazing hosts. Not only is their home perfect for dogs with a huge fenced in yard and lots of toys to play with, but they genuinely love and care for all of their pet guests. Our pups paw at the car window as soon as we get to their street knowing what a great time they're going to have. Sometimes I wonder if they like their time at Bev and Chip's better than home!

Furthermore, Bev and Chip are great people, and I enjoy our little chats each time I come to their place. They are very flexible as well, and have accommodated us on both last minute trips (as this one was), and for travel delays.

Overall, you won't find better hosts. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Bev and Chip are the biggest dog lovers! They have a great fenced yard and play wwit the dogs. They sleep with the dogs too! Bella was definitely worn out when I picked her up. out
I left my dog Shandy with Bev and Chip for a 2nd play date so that she could get used to them and their dogs before I left her for a few days. She had a very good time and went home happy! She threw a fit when I left her, but was happy and having fun within a short time of me leaving.

Bev and Chip were wonderful hosts to my nervous little dog. This was the first time leaving her with them overnight, and I was most impressed that they got her to behave well enough that she was invited to come back. My dog had a good time while at Bev and Chip's and was calm and happy when I came to pick her up. My dog will be going back to visit them soon!

We took a family vacation to Disney and were gone for over a week with no worries because our Daisy was enjoying her vacation with Auntie Bev, Chip, Xolani and Arabia! . Would never want to leave her with anyone else.
Once again the perfect getaway for our dog child. It is so heartwarming to see her just be excited when we pull up at Bev and Chip's house. What could be better praise from a pup?
Once again Pippin had an awesome visit with Auntie Bev and Uncle Chip and all his doggie friends. He LOVES his vacations here. He doesn't want to stay anywhere else! And he never wants to leave! He's been visiting for four years now - Thank you Bev and Chip for being such wonderful care givers! See you again soon - Love, Pippin and and the whole family!

Dear Bev and Chip,

Thanks for taking care of our lovely Lois & Tinley during their stay with you.

As usual you were amazing and I'm sure the dogs enjoyed it very much. Your daily email updates with pictures were appreciated.

We can't thank you enough and the four paws babies sends their love.

Moby just loves spending Christmas with Bev and Chip. He gets spoiled rotten, gets special treats, and gets with picture taken with Bev's Christmas decorations. I can't imagine a better place to board my dog, or more loving and attentive dog sitters to heave him with. Five stars all around!

Our pugs had another wonderful stay with Bev and Chip! We wouldn't take them anywhere else. The boys are happy (and so are we!) that they get the same love, snuggles, and attention from Bev and Chip that they get from us at home. As always, we highly recommend this host!!!

Bev and Chip were excellent hosts to my poodle Derby this Thanksgiving. He stayed 2-nights, played and socialized with other pups, ate turkey for dinner, and posed for photos. Derby loves being pampered, and he gets to run and play in their big backyard. Bev and Chip always take good care of Derby. He comes home happy, and ready for his nap.

Another amazing stay! Our little pup stayed with bev and chip for two whole weeks. They sent videos or picture updates every day and I felt like our guy was well taken care of. Thanks for such a long and great stay!!
Rufus had a wonderful time with Beverley and Chip and the other dogs. He loves to run and play, and they have the perfect backyard for that. And I loved the fact that Bev sent me updates with photos or videos while Rufus was staying with them.
I think that Penny had the best time ever these last 4 days with Beverly and Chip. They never let me down when they take care of her. I never worry and they take some awesome pictures so I always know what she is up to. Thank you, once again, Beverly and Chip!

Maggie loves staying with Bev, Chip and the poodles. They have a huge back yard for the pups to play. They are fantastic hosts and provide daily photos and email updates. They are very highly recommended.
When we are able to give enough notice to get Chewy to Bev and Chip we are very happy knowing that Chewy is with them.
Bev and Chip are extremely nice people and the ultimate dog lovers. This is the second time my three dogs stayed with them. As soon as we got off the car to drop them off, my dogs ran to meet Bev and Chip at their doorsteps. That's how much they enjoy being with them and their own two little friendly poodles! One of my dogs needs medication twice a day, and Bev always keeps track of the meds, the different foods, and the different needs of each of my dogs. We get great pictures every day, which we very much appreciate. We are very happy to have found them and we will continue to bring our pets to their house when we travel. Thanks, Bev and Chip!

As always Bev and Chip provided wonderful care for our 2 dogs. It seems every time they host them something comes up with our trip! This time our flight was rescheduled for a later time but they were flexible and understanding. Our boys seem to love being there and it truly is a vacation for them with their big yard and lots of attention!

Bev and Chip are the best...hands down!
My Chihuahua, Zeus, has spent numerous stays (vacays) and enjoyed each and every one. This most recent stay was no different.
Recently, I adopted a second Chihuahua, Miles, and this was his first stay. Like Zeus, he enjoyed his stay - especially playing in their large yard with the other dogs
. Also, like Zeus, he almost didn't want to leave.
Bev and Chip are so caring and devoted to the care of pets. Like me, one should never have concerns or worries leaving pets in their care. Their daily updates with pics or video only make me think of two things: 1) comfort in knowing they are cared for; and 2) allowing me to relax and be at ease.
Lastly, Zeus has recently been prescribed numerous medications for serious health conditions associated with his age. Bev and Chip kept him on track with his required dosage regimen...even with other dogs visiting Zeus' personalized care never missed a beat.
Bev and Chip are the only ones I trust to care for my Chihuahuas. Thank you both so very much!

Aunty Bev and Uncle Chip took excellent care of my poodle Derby, during his first (6-nights) extended stay apart from me. I loved receiving the daily updates, and Derby appeared very happy in all the photos. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing he was safe.

Bev and Chip have a loving, welcoming dog home and I highly recommend them as dog sitters to anyone who is considering.

Murphy got to sleep in bed with a human, just like he does at home, got lots of play in their spacious back yard and was even sent home with a bully stick to chew on from Bev. They are warm and loving people, and your dog(s) will be very happy with them.

Bev and Chip are the best! Carmelo had a wonderful stay over the Labor Day weekend, I think he probably felt he was the one on the holiday getaway. Bev sent photos everyday and Carmelo definitely looked like he was having a good time. Bev is so sweet, She left a small bag of biscuits in his bag to take home. Bev and Chip are our primary host anytime we need a sitter for our pup. They always make Carmelo feel special when he is with them.

I am so grateful to have been referred to Beverly & Chip!! They take wonderful care of my dog Baxter and give me peace of mind when I travel. I love getting the video clips of him playing and pictures of how he is doing. He loves being in their home because someone is there almost all the time, they have a huge fenced in yard where he can run to his heart's content, he gets to sleep on their bed and Bev makes him special dog food from scratch -- a doggie heaven :) Thank you Bev & Chip for everything!!

As always, George was treated with tender loving care by Bev and Chip. We feel completely confident that we can leave him in such good care.
Bev and Chip are the best. We had a canceled flight and they were able and happy to accommodate Bitsy with an extended stay. Bev is also helping us later this month with a long stay and special arrangements for our little one. They are becoming like family. Bitsy loves being over there and gets all excited when we approach their home. Thanks a million for being such wonderful hosts for our dog. There aren't enough stars to show how great you really are!

My two dogs had another great stay with Bev, Chip, and the poodles. Bev and Chip are so sweet and their house is perfect for dogs! They have a huge fenced in yard for them to play and my dogs are always returned to me worn out and happy :). I have one dog who is very nervous around new people, but when I drop them off they both run to the yard to play like they belong there. It's truly a vacation for the pups and hard to get them to come home with me. lol. I will definitely continue booking with Bev and Chip in the future. They make my vacations stress free knowing my pups are in good hands.

Another fantastic stay! Thanks Bev and Chip!
This is a little late but Olive enjoyed her time with Beverley and Chip. It made our vacation more relaxing knowing she was in good hands.
Julian had another great stay with Bev and Chip. He enjoys running around the big backyard with the poodles and his new friends. We always enjoy the pics and updates Bev sends. Thanks again and we look forward to the next visit.
Bev and Chip have an unbelievably magic touch with dogs! They sat my aging chocolate lab, and my equally aging Yorkie, for several days recently. And, while our lab is a layback sweetie, the Yorkie is -- maybe like all Yorkies?-- a bit of a bossy, picky prickler at times who usually just ignores other dogs and sometimes people. Yet when I returned to pick them up, not only was my lab as happy as can be there with Bev and Chip, which I expected, but so, too, was my very particular Yorkie!

Thank you again and again, Bev and Chip! You are wonderful -- and truly a treasure to know.

Liz, in Alexandria

Beverly and Chip were great. They are very accommodating and their place is awesome. I was sort of jealous that the dogs had such a big yard and comfortable place to stay while I was away at a hotel for business. I certainly appreciated the e-mail communication with pictures of the boys each day. The pictures captured what the dogs would normally be doing if they were home with me. This was my first time ever using DogVacay. Beverly and Chip set a very high bar. I certainly would like to have the boys stay there regularly when I have to travel.

Another wonderful visit with Bev and Chip and their fun furry friends. We leave our maltipoo Pippin with Bev and Chip multiple times a year and he LOVES his visits with them and their pooches. Its Pippin's vacation time too!! Thanks so much again! See you soon!

My poodle-mix (Derby) loves staying with Bev and Chip. He gets to play with other dogs and run in their big backyard. This was Derby's second play-date, and he ate his food today, which he never does when I leave him at home or Doggy Day Camp.
I think the fact that Bev and Chip have so many repeat houseguests speaks volumes as to how they are viewed by their customers. Wouldn't leave our Daisy with anyone else!
I am so thankful I found Bev and Chip, they are wonderful, my Rudy loves going to their house. Thèy have a great fenced yard with trees and plenty of toys and treats. I would highly recommend them Evelyn Hambleton
Bev, Chip and their pups were excellent hosts as always. They provided daily email updates with pictures showing Maggie enjoying her vacay (I don't how they get the pups to pose for the wonderful pictures). It's always comforting to know that's she's well taken care of at their home

5 Stars as always! We have left our Wheaten Terrier with Bev and Chip countless times and the experience is always perfect. Kirby can't wait for his next visit!
Another 5-star stay for our pup! Bev and Chip never disappoint. The constant updates and pictures keep us at ease while we are away. Thanks!
Our dog, Jack had a wonderful stay at Bev and Chip's. He was at ease while there and so were we that he was in such good hands. They have a great yard for paying ball and this made our dog so happy. Loved the updates and pictures "Aunt Bev" emailed to us". We'll be back!

My MinPin Moby and I are always thrilled when he can have a vacay at Bev and Chip's house. They spoil him rotten, and he can play all he wants in the back yard with the poodles. Bev takes excellent care of him, and is as mindful of his well-being as I am. I couldn't be happier with them and we look forward to Moby's next visit!

Carmelo had another wonderful Vacay stay this 4th of July weekend with Bev and Chip. The best part of his stay is that he gets to play and learn from their poodles. Bev is so wonderful she makes sure to send us photos and videos daily. We feel so confident that he is being well taken care of and guilt-free because we can see that he is having a wonderful time too.
I am so happy we have Bev and Chip as our regular Vacay host. They truly show how much they love our pup. We love the videos and photos of Carmelo in the garden. We recommend them and will choose them as our host again in the future.

Another wonderful stay with Bev and Chip. We wouldn’t board anywhere else.
And another 5 star stay.
Another 5 star stay.
We’ve boarded with Bev and Chip several times over the past two years. Sam always has a great time and is tried for days afterward. We wouldn’t board anywhere else.
Molly had an awesome time staying with Bev and Chip. We can tell that she didn't want to leave when we came to pick her up. Thank you so much for hosting Molly. We would highly recommend Bev and Chip to all our families and friends. It was so comforting to receive daily update and pics of Molly during her entire stay. She stayed with them for 12 days which was the longest that she has ever been away from us. Bev and Chip are wonderful and caring couple and you know that your pup will be spoiled. Smile --Doris T.

My dog is hyper, kind of unstable, and anxious in any new situation. After meeting Bev and Chip, they thought she would be OK with them so we tried a 4 hour “play date”. After a little greeting hiccup with some of the other dogs, my dog had a great time. She rarely smiles, but she smiled all the way home, and promptly had a nice long nap and then a good night sleep. I will be dropping her off for more play dates soon, and eventually try an overnight.

Chip and the pups were on their own this visit. We came back to a very cheerful dog of our own, who has gone from being shy and fearful to playful and well adjusted thsnks to her doggie vacays here. My heart was joyful when I saw her playing tug with Zolani and running around as a happy dog guest in the ample, shady back yard. Beverly was even so kind as to follow up with me after an initial travel proposal and kept better track of my travel plans than I'd managed do myself. My husband and I are so glad to be able to travel with no worries about our dog-child.

Beverly and Chip are by far the best dog sitters I have ever used! My little dog acts as if she is in "dog heaven" whenever she stays with them. In fact, I always like to make sure that they are available before I make plans to be away.
Olive always enjoys her visits and this was no exception. She came home happy and perhaps a bit spoiled from a nice fenced yard to run around in all weekend.
Beverly and Chip are fantastic hosts. They truly care about their visiting dogs. Our high energy hunting dog needs to run and their large fenced backyard was the perfect place for her to play. Beverly emailed me photos, which helped me know that our girl was in a happy place. Thank you Bev and Chip!! You are awesome!

Bev and Chip took fantastic care of our pup! I am a nervous pup mom and Bev put me at ease from our first meeting. She delivered pictures or movies of the pups playing every single day without fail. My pup has a tendency for cherry eye and sometimes needs his eye massaged. It happened with bev and she administered the massage and made the pup happy and healthy. And then it turned out in my crazy packing frenzy that I didn't include enough food for the 10 day stay; bev handled it and I didn't have to worry. I really felt like I could trust bev and chip to keep my little guy safe and give him his own play-filled vacation while we were on vacation. Awesome. Fantastic. Wonderful. Thank you!!!

Another fabulous stay!! This was the longest time we had spent away from our pup, and we didn't worry for a single minute. Bev and Chip sent us updates and photos everyday so we knew Brunello was being well taken care of. When we picked him up and got him home, he was exhausted as we were! He had clearly played and played in the giant garden the entire time we were away. Thanks again for another wonderful visit!

Bev and Chip are very caring and wonderful people! This time I left my three dogs with them, and they were absolutely happy and well taken care of. They are our top choice when we have to travel. Thank you so much, Bev and Chip!!
Bev and Chip have have been our host for a couple of years for our beloved Lucky who passed on in November. Now, we have a new puppy and we were so happy he was able to stay with Bev and Chip last weekend. Carmelo is only 4 months old with lots of energy, so we were not sure if he would be a bit much. But that did not seem to matter to Bev and Chip. Carmelo had the time of his life....we know he enjoyed staying with the poodles, Bev and Chip as much as our beloved Lucky did. Carmelo also made friends with George. We are thankful for the photos and videos of Carmelo during his stay.

George had a wonderful vacation and looks terrific. Thanks, Bev and Chip for making him feel like one of the family.
We had Bitsy for 3 back to back weekends at our dear sitters' Bev & Chip. Thank you so much for the loving care you give. Nothing like peace of mind while we were away. We appreciate all that you do!
Bev and Chip have taken such good care of our Wheaten Terrier so many times and our latest visit was no exception. We left Kirby with Bev and Chip for a whole week - and they were so flexible to let us drop him off early and pick him up late. Bev sends daily pictures which gives us the peace of mind we need when we are away from our boy. They are such amazing caretakers and we are so glad to have them. We don't know what we would do without Bev and Chip, who give our dog as much love as we would give him.

My pup Elsa had a great time at Bev and Chip's and was obviously very well cared for. As a fearful dog who had only stayed away from us one other time, it was great to know that she settled in nicely, enjoying the hospitality of her human and canine hosts (the cutests poodles around! - great hosts in and of themselves). We will definitely be booking again, and look forward to more vacations with peace of mind. Thanks, Bev and Chip!

Bev did an excellent job with taking care of my anxious little dog who doesn't like to leave home. I highly recommend Bev for the care that my dog received. - overall exprience 5 paws!
Bev and Chip are terrific, kind people. I am thankful that they will watch Yoda, and Yoda loves them.
As always, Olive seemed to have a wonderful visit! We appreciate that they keep her allergies in mind and send regular updates.
AMAZING! Gunner is so well taken care of and although happy to see us when we pick him up, you can tell he has been treated like one of the family while on DogVacay with Bev and Chip! We also appreciate so much the pictures and updates sent while we are gone. I won't leave Gunner with ANYONE else. Would give them 10 stars if I could!

Beverley and Chip were great hosts for Yoshi, he really enjoyed running around outside in their big backyard. They were very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times, and Beverley kept me continuously updated on the stay and sent pictures every day. Thanks again!

Rufus had a wonderful time running around that big yard with the other dogs. He loved it, and I was relaxed while away knowing that Bev and Chip were taking good care of him.
My dog was the first guest at Bev and Chip's dog hotel and has now boarded many times. I was particularly looking for a home where the humans were not gone all day as I am retired and my dog is used to having someone around. Perfect fit! Bev sends e-mail or text updates daily with lots of cute pictures
Read More...
Another wonderful experience! This was a last minute reservation due to a death in the family. As always, Bev and Chip were so accommodating and put my mind at ease at a very difficult time. Thanks so much for taking great care of our boy while we were away! You always give us peace of mind knowing he is in good hands each and every time he is with you!

Alfie is so grateful for the big yard. He runs around all day!
PAwesome!
Alfie didn't want to leave!
Alfie has been staying with Bev and Chip for nearly 3 years now. It's been far and away the best experience, they have a large fenced in garden where alfie runs around all day. Bev gives us regular updates including photos so we know he is being taken care of. Really we have had no issues and will continue taking alfie here, he really does love it!

Penny's stay was fantastic. She is totally spoiled from all the attention she gets from Bev and Chip. I would never leave her anywhere but with them! I also think she was a bit depressed when we got home and misses them already.
We were so thankful to have found Bev and Chip. The pups loved hanging out with Bev and the other boarders, as well as the two poodles and we've already got a week scheduled for them to go back later this month while we're on vacation. thank you so much Bev and Chip!

I'm always glad when Bev and Chip can take care of my dogs, Mine had an excellent stay there this week, and loved being able to wander the big back yard off-leash. Rumor has it he even got to sleep in a prime spot in the big bed at night! I love getting Bev's updates and photos, and know that my dog is in the best of hands. We'll be back!

Our dog Julian had another great time at Bev and Chip's dog resort. Judging from the updates Bev sent, which we appreciate, and with the good weather, our pup looked pretty tired after playing in the big backyard all day with his buddies. Bev and Chip are great hosts and our dog is right at home with them.

Bev and Chip have, once again, been there for us when we needed help. Bev is so very caring and accommodating. Yoda loves their home and yard, and Chip, too. Our thanks and appreciation are with them.
Bev and Chip are truly amazing hosts. They could not be more accommodating, and you can tell that they really love dogs. They have an amazing yard for the dogs to run around, and make sure to love our dogs as much as we love them at home. We love the pictures they send us while we're away, and the pups love the treats they come home with. We can't say enough good things about Bev and Chip as hosts.

Beverley and Chip made the process easy. We were first-timers and Beverley had us come over to look at the place our dogs would be staying in advance to make sure it was to our liking. They have a huge back yard for the dogs to play.

When it was time to drop the dogs off for their "vacay", Chip was having some medical issues and we wouldn't have blamed Beverley and Chip for cancelling the reservation. However, they love dogs (and have two of their own) and decided to keep the reservation, for which we were very appreciative.

When the dogs were dropped off to Beverley and Chip, they made it very simple and quick even though one of our dogs is taking several medications. We received pictures and updates everyday about how our dogs were doing, which takes away the stress of worrying about your dogs being in an unfamiliar place. Overall, they were excellent! We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to use DogVacay.

How honored I am to be the 150th review! “Camp Bev & Chip” is Ramona’s home away from home and I’m not sure which home she prefers! As soon as we get close to the house she starts crying and just can’t wait to see Auntie Bev. She stayed nine nights this time and, clearly, had a great time. She is a sweet (although worrisome) dog and they know just how to handle her. She looked great from all the one-on-one attention lavished on her and probably did not miss me at all. I had no worries knowing she was in such great hands. Without question, the best dog care around.

Fabulous as always. Thank you for being such a great host, even when the conditions are not the most ideal. All the best!
Beverly was very kind to me and I my dog Tequila I highly recommend her! my dog came back home super happy I am very pleased with her services.
This was my third time taking a dog to stay with Bev and Chip, but the first for my dog Moby, a 9-year-old Min-Pin. Bev and Chip were great about introducing him into their pack, and making sure that he was as comfortable as possible for a somewhat fearful dog. From the pictures Bev sent, he appeared to be having a great time and got along well with all the other dogs in residence. I know he was spoiled rotten and given lots of cuddles and treats. Bev and Chip took such good care of him, and we will definitely be coming back!

We simply cannot sing Bev and Chip's praises highly enough. Our canine companion, Brodie, has been staying with them for the last 3 years and they truly treat him like family. We moved away from DC this past year and we still make the 200+ mile trip back just so that he can stay with them. They are THAT good. Bev and Chip, thank you so much for all that you do for our dear Brodie! He had yet another amazing vacay!

Once again, Maggie stay at Bev and Chip's during the holidays was a breeze and made it very easy for us to enjoy our out of town visit. Pictures and videos were sent daily and it felt like she was having such a great time. I can tell Maggie's looking forward to seeing them and the poodles again and again.
Read More...
As usual, a great stay with Bev and Chip! Wouldn't leave my Daisy with anyone else.
Our dog Julian had a great time with Bev, Chip, and the poodles. He feels right at home there and is treated as part of their family. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing our boy was in good hands. We always enjoy and appreciate the daily updates and pics.
Read More...
Lois & Tinley had a great time as usual at Bev and Chip's. Thanks for the daily updates received. They always look sad when they arrive home.
Bev and Chip took care of our dog Shadow for the entire Thanksgiving week. They sent either photos, updates, or video daily. It was great to see our dog having such a great time. I would recommend Bev and Chip to anyone looking for a place to not only watch your dog but to include it in their family. They also have a huge back yard which the dogs could run and play for hours. Once again thank you for all the love you shared with our dog.
Thanks,
Joe T.

Our Wheaten Terrier is a regular with Bev and Chip, and they always give him first class treatment. It is so wonderful to know that our boy is given such care when we are away. We can't recommend Bev and Chip highly enough.
We are so grateful to have Bev and Chip as our Dog vacay hosts. Lucky has stayed with them numerous of occasions and received much love and care. This time, Lucky was under much medication and not eating very well. Bev tried everything to help Lucky increase his appetite and make him feel better. We can't say enough about the special care Bev and Chip always give to Lucky. We feel very confident that Lucky is in the best hands when he is with them. They are the best!

Rufus had a wonderful time staying with Beverley and Chip. He loved being able to run around their very large yard with the other dogs in residence. He was a very happy pup!
Bev, Chip and the poodles couldn't have been better hosts. I really appreciated the daily emails with photos and vid clips they sent. Maggie really loves staying with them and enjoys running around their big back yard with the other pups.
Another great stay for our beagle Bitsy... she sunbathed in the big back yard that she doesn't get access to at home. Bev is so good with her, snuggles and cuddles galore. She's looking forward to her extended stay in November. Thanks again for the care!
Read More...
Thanks Bev & Chip for hosting Lois & Tinley so we could be able to enjoy our nephews wedding without worrying about them. As usual, Lois didn't want to leave because you spoil her so much. Thanks again for being an awesome host.
As usual both Lois & Tinley had a great time. Thank you being an awesome host!
Definitely top drawer! Bev and Chip know all there is to know about dog care and caring for dogs. It’s like sending your pup to camp: there’s big back yard, doggy company and lots of squirrels to patrol. When I picked up Ramona to go home I’m not sure that she really wanted to leave. I’ve already scheduled a return visit and am sure Ramona will be seeing Bev and Chip again and again.
Read More...
Our dog Julian had another great time playing with some new and old friends. He loves running around in the back yard and is in great hands with Bev and Chip who are super hosts. We always look forward to the updates and can rest easy knowing our dog is safe and happy. We also appreciate Bev and Chip's flexibility in taking us at the last minute.

Our little beagle loved being at the ranch, especially running with the other dogs in the big, open yard. She got lots of snuggles and love from Bev and Chip. We received updates, pictures and videos. So grateful to have peace of mind while we were away. Thanks a bunch!

We have been taking our dog to Bev and Chip for 2 years now. Bev and Chip take such good care of him. They always send us pictures and videos of of the dogs playing and they have so much fun together! He is best friends with Bev and Chip's dog Xolani and Arabia. We feel 100% comfortable when we drop off our dog that he gets treated like royalty at their house. We are so grateful for Bev and Chip and couldn't ask for a better family to look after our little one :)
Read More...
George had a wonderful time with his pals. I felt completely comfortable leaving George for a week, knowing he would be well taken care of and thought of as one of the family.
Another fantastic visit! Bev and Chip always make our dog feel like he's part of their family--we never worry for one second while we are away.
This was the first time we left our pups with anyone other than family, so I was a little apprehensive -- but I didn't need to be, because Bev and Chip treated my little chihuahuas like they were their own. They are showered with love and affection from the second they arrive until the second they leave, and every evening I received an email with a picture and report on how much fun they had that day. I wouldn't hesitate to send Sheldon and Penny on vacation to Bev and Chip's house again, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a wonderful, trusted place to leave their fur babies.

Thanks for allowing Chewy the extra day during the busy holiday weekend. Chewy seems so happy to see you and misses you after he comes home. Thanks again Bev and Chip!
Once again an awesome visit for Pippin! He stayed a whole month with his four legged friends and loved it! Thanks Bev and Chip for a worry free vacation for us and little Pippin! Hope to visit again soon!
As always, we're thrilled with Olive's stay with Beverly and Chip! She seems to enjoy her time there and we can relax when we are out of town knowing she is staying active and in safe hands.
This host is clearly in love with dogs. They are very doting. Chip gets up at 4:00 in the morning and lets the dogs out. They let the pups sleep with them and the dogs can roam freely in and out of their home. They send cute messages and pics while you're away. I would HIGHLY recommend Chip and Beverly to watch your dog!
Read More...
I can't say enough good things about Bev and Chip. They are wonderful people and really care about the dog they board. They are extremely attentive!
Once again, Chewy couldn't wait to get out of the car once we pulled into Beverly and Chip's driveway! He loves being there. Thank you again for taking such great care of him and making him feel special! See you at the end of August!

THANKS.
Sunny and Rob Katz

Another great stay with Bev and Chip! Sam had a great time.
I want to thank Bev and Chip for having taken such wonderful care of our beloved dog Maggie recently. We were unable to take her on vacation this year -- the first time that has happened in her 11-year life .... But when we returned, it was pretty obvious she had thoroughly enjoyed her own vacation with Bev and Chip. We hope not to have to leave her behind on future outings, but if we did, we would hope she could stay again with them -- they are just amazing! Thank you, you two! -- Liz
Read More...
Thanks Bev and Chip for looking after our dogs, Lois & Tinley. As always, they both had a wonderful time despite Lois's accident. They were both so excited to arrive and Lois didn't want to leave. That's because of all the TLC she gets as well as being spoilt.

Again thank you. Linda & Marty

Zeus enjoyed another fantastic mini-vacay with Bev, Chip, their poodles, and other canine guests. For me...beyond expectations...worry free and I thoroughly enjoyed the personalized daily updates with pictures. Bev and Chip are now my "sole source" when I need someone to care for my Zeus.

Another great experience for Penny and for me! Bev and Chip are the best! Penny loved the special treat we found in her bag and finished it off almost instantly. I don't think I will ever find any place better for Penny to "vacation."
We can always relax when we go out of town knowing Olive is good hands. It's great to come home and pick up a happy, healthy dog.
Beverley was amazing! She clearly has a lot of experience with dogs. She had several dogs at the time but knew how to help the pack accept my dog, and within an hour they were all chasing each other around the yard happily.

She send pictures and video and lots of updates on how my dog was doing, which I really appreciated!

My dog was exhausted when I picked her up and very happy.

Beverley has a huge yard for dogs to run in and cozy couches and beds for dogs to curl up in, and gives them plenty of love. It truly seems like dog heaven!
Read More...
Bev and Chip are the best! This was the longest time we spent away without Daisy, and being out of the country, I knew our communication would be limited. But...as long as she was with them, I didn't worry. We totally trust them with our Daisy.
Words can not express how grateful I am to have found Bev & Chip. They are extremely loving, patient and knowledgeable caregivers. I received daily email updates about the dogs and was always able to reach them for any reason.

They have a large beautiful backyard (where the pups loving playing) and a wonderful home where they happily share with their visiting pups.

I know my two dogs look forward to future vacations with Bev & Chip. Thank you so much!

Bev provided exceptional care as usual, and Yoda had a lot of fun!
Bev and Chip have taken wonderful care of our beloved Wheaten Terrier many, many times and they do an absolutely fantastic job. In addition to providing our dog wonderful care, they are very communicative and routinely send us pictures and updates about what is going on at the dog ranch. Our dog always hates to leave! We know that our dog is in wonderful hands when we leave him with Bev and Chip. We don't know what we would do without them!
Read More...
Second time, just as great as first. Bailey was bouncing out of her skin when we pulled up and she saw where we were :)
Awesome experience! Bailey had a blast. Got updates and pictures daily.
This was Chewy's second visit with Bev and Chip. Picked him up yesterday and today he is still holding on to the little squeaky toy Bev and Chip gave to him. Even though he was very excited to see me and my husband, I think he really misses Bev and Chip's pack of fun! I am very happy that we found Bev and Chip through Dog Vacay. They are very caring and close to home.
Read More...
I know that Penny enjoyed her stay with Bev and Chip once again. My trip away was full of hard work this time and I was relieved not to have to worry at all about her. This is like a second home for her. Thank you, Bev and Chip, for all the special care you always give her.
Read More...
I am so grateful to Beverly and Chip for all they do for our family! Our dog has a fantastic time and comes home wonderfully tired and content whenever he has stayed with them. Beverly and Chip go above and beyond when it comes to hosting pets, making it an extremely pleasant experience for everyone.
Read More...
Bev and Chip are great hosts and we always enjoy the email updates and pictures of our dog while we are away. Our dog Julian enjoyed the spring weather playing in the yard with the poodles and his new dog friends.
Bev and Chip are amazing. Our dog Gunner, a Cavachon, has visited several times and has been well taken care of each and every time. The pictures and notes they send are awesome and makes you feel like your dog is having a vacation too!
Thank you so much for taking in Brodie on such short notice! As always, he had a wonderful stay with you (which is a feat given the constant rain!). We certainly will be back again (even after our move!). Thank you so much again!
Bev and Chip were amazing! Gizmo had the best time playing with all the dogs. The updates we received while we were gone gave me great peace of mind. I could not be happier with our experience with them. Gizmo will definitely be going back to stay with Bev and Chip during all our trips.
Read More...
Bev and Chip were wonderful! The boys loved them and they loved the boys. They have a great backyard with plenty of room to run around that our dogs LOVED. They are very responsive and seem to truly care for the dogs. We felt very comfortable leaving our pups with them and will definitely be back!

Penny definitely loved the reunion. She was sad and whimpering as we drove away.
Awesome experience. Bev and Chip are the best. Would have no issue the next time we visit Alexandria. Very close to Old Town. If you ever need a boarding , this is the place !!!!
Beverley and Chip were fantastic. As soon as we came to visit them for our meet and greet, I knew our pup was in good hands. You can tell that they really enjoy spending time with their dog guests and I was very confident our dog was being well taken care of while we were away. He came home exhausted from so much fun time--highly recommend them!

Oscar loved his stay with Bev and Chip and the poodles. I was so worried about leaving him, but Bev and Chip sent daily pictures and updates, and knowing that he was bonding with his new buddies and learning new games (tug-of-war!) meant I could stop worrying about how he handled the separation. Really the only problem was that he spent the two days following my return sulking, which I attribute to him having had so much fun he was sad to be parted from his new friends.
Read More...
This was the first time our girls stayed overnight anywhere without us and we were very apprehensive...but Beverly and Chip were so good with them and before long our dogs were playing and enjoying their big fenced yard. It is so nice to know we can now enjoy a vacation and our girls will be having fun and well cared for too! Thanks again Bev & Chip!

We would give Bev and Chip ten stars if we could. This was Wilson's second visit and he was jumping with joy when we arrived. Bev and Chip are a special couple, with great warmth and a sense of humor. With impending snow the night before we were to drop off Wilson, Bev and Chip offered to take him the night before planned. Wilson adores them like family and so do we. Oh and they sent us daily updates with a photograph of Wilson and a note.
Read More...
Julian had a great time playing with Arabia and Xolani. He loves running around in the yard and the weather was great this past weekend. He certainly was good and tired when he got home. As always, Bev and Chip kept us updated with pictures and how his day went.
We know he is in good hands with Bev and Chip when we go out of town.

It was so nice pulling into Beverly and Chips driveway for a "meet and greet" and having Beverly come out to car and playing with Chewy right away! He took to her really fast. Beverly sent a photo with updates every day. Chewy seemed to feel right at home only with four paw friends to play with. Beverly takes her animal care seriously, requesting a few forms to be filled out about Chewy. I personally liked this. She has the information she needs for the proper care of your pet.

I truly hope that we are able to have Beverly and Chip care for Chewy in the future. We feel very relaxed knowing that Chewy is happy and in good hands!!
Read More...
What can we say...another great stay with Bev and Chip! We never worry when Daisy is in their care. So happy we found them.
Bev and Chip were such great caretakers because little Maggie was sick and they took care of her like their own. They provided daily updates, including pictures and videos. Thanks to their nurturing, it saved the Christmas vacation. Bev and Chip are highly recommended.

We couldn't be more pleased with Olive's stay with Bev and Chip! She came home in fantastic condition and obviously enjoyed her time with them. We really appreciate the updates and that they open their home for the holidays.
This is the 4th time our dog, Brodie, has stayed with Bev and Chip. We will never have him stay with anyone else! They are the absolute best. They treat Brodie like he is their own and he is always excited to go back. Thank you again, Bev and Chip!
Truman had a great time. Beverly and Chip were really nice and treated Truman as one of their own. Their large backyard is great for running around and playing. I would definitely use them again.
Bev and Chip are kind and accommodating caregivers, and we are thankful that we have such trustworthy people to take of Yoda.
This was our first time traveling since we adopted our little Chihuahua. She is a senior rescue dog on heart medication. Bev and Chip were the most wonderful caring hosts. We got a picture every day during our trip, and our pet got her medication twice a day. When we picked her up, she was happy and relaxed. We could not be happier! And we are certain that we will be leaving our pet with them again in the future.

Bev and Chip were fantastic with our 1 year old Brittany, Dover, who can be difficult with high energy, high attention requirements, and jumping. Bev made sure to ask how we handle Dover's behavior and was very encouraging. They sent us daily emails to let us know how Dover was doing, and it was clear he was treated like a family member. Bev and Chip are a lovely couple with a beautiful home and lot of experience. You can't go wrong booking a vacay with them.
Read More...
Our dog, Julian, had a great time with Xolani and Arabia. He made some new friends with Daisy and Zeus and enjoyed running around in the yard. As always, he was in great hands with Bev and Chip who take great care of our dog and even got him to eat which is not always easy. He likes that food by the way so hopefully that will continue. We also enjoy the updates and pictures sent daily.
Read More...
Zeus once again stayed with Bev, Chip, Xolani and Arabia so I could attend an out of state wedding. As usual, he was right at home. In addition to Bev and Chip's poodles, Zeus was able to interact with Wilson, Julian, and Daisy. This was a great opportunity for Zeus to play and make new friends. He had a wonderful time! I highly recommend Bev and Chip.

Once again Zeus had a wonderful time staying with Bev, Chip, Xolani and Arabia. The daily contact and pictures allowed me to enjoy my five day vacation. Zeus was completely at ease and comfortable with his surroundings...as if he was at home. Thank you again for taking such great care of my Zeus!

Another great stay for Daisy with Bev, Chip, Arabia, and Xolani. Love the photo updates. Can't stress enough how comfortable we feel leaving Daisy in their care. See you in a few weeks!

Bev and Chip are incredible. Our dog Wilson had a blast staying with them. They treated him like their own dog - he slept at the foot of their bed, had a plethora of toys, and had full access to their house. A few days before I dropped Wilson off at Bev and Chip's I found a hot spot. I got him to the vet immediately and he was put on anti-biotics (so not contagious). He needed 2-3 pills a day and when I emailed Bev with this news - she was so kind and told me not to worry, she was happy to give him the pills. Wilson is under 2 years and is 70 pounds, he is pretty active and needs a lot of activity. Between the huge yard, playing with Bev and Chip, their dogs and a second visiting dog, Wilson just had the time of his life. Also Bev sent us daily updates about Wilson - sometimes even two. The emails and photos were very sweet and a highlight while I was traveling for work. I've already told all my neighbors about Bev and Chip, they are simply the best.

So thankful to have found Bev and Chip. They took care of Maggie for 12 days and were kind enough to send daily emails with pictures and videos of her playing with the 2 poodles. I could tell she having fun and enjoying her vacation. I highly recommend them and will definitely have them care for Maggie in the future.

This was Lucky's third time staying with Bev and Chip, and he had a wonderful time. We feel so at peace when on vacation knowing that our furry baby is in excellent hands. Thanks!
Thank you Bev for rescuing Lois & Tinley for the day. I was afraid that they would be traumatized with the roofers.
This was Ivan's first time staying at Bev and Chip's home and he seemed to have a lot of fun! It certainly was good knowing he was well taken care of and we can leave him again without worry. Thanks!!
We boarded our dog, Sam, with Bev and Chip for a week. They went to great lengths to make Sam feel comfortable in their home. Sam lounged on their couch, played in their yard and slept in their bed, just like home. Sam had some separation anxiety and refused eat for the first 3 days. Bev and Chip showed genuine concern and offered to feed him more tasty canned food. That worked and Sam loved his new meals. During Sam’s stay they sent daily emails with updates and photos. I researched boarding options all over the area from Annapolis to Fredericksburg and found Bev and Chip’s house to be the best option. They offer personal attention, excellent communication, and their house and huge backyard are ideal for boarding. Sam will be boarding with them again!

As usual, they were wonderful caregivers, and Yoda enjoyed his stay.
Thanks Bev and Chip! Lois & Tinley had a swell time at your home. They seemed a bit sad once we got home as they didn't have any friends to play with.
Bev and Chip were FANTASTIC! They took care of our 2 pugs - Max and Teddy while we attended an out of town wedding. From the minute I arrived at their house for our first meet and greet I knew it would be the perfect place for my boys. This was my first experience with DogVacay and I was really impressed! I think it's great that someone is always home with them, they can run free around the fenced in backyard, and last but not least the boys could snuggle in bed with them (the pugs' favorite thing to do!) I would recommend Bev and Chip to anyone. They are such great hosts and I will not hesitate to leave Max and Teddy with them in the future.

Our golden retriever, Chloe, had a wonderful stay with Bev and Chip while we were away for the week! It was such a great experience for us that we're already planning her next stay at their home. :O) Trust me...your dog will love it at Bev and Chip's house!

Bev and Chip really do a fantastic job looking after Alfie. We joke that whilst we are on vacation, so is he. With a large, fenced in yard, he is able to play outside all day with other dogs. Bev gives us regular, thoughtful updates, including photos and videos. It's clear they have a passion for dogs, this is more than just a business, it's a passion. We try to use them every time, I advice you book up well in advance!

Again Bev and Chip has done an outstanding job in sitting with our big baby Noah, this was his second 2 week visit this year, we will be returning. Chip and Bev are the reason for our future returns. Love all the special attention Noah received, he was comfortable in their home, the pictures and videos of him running through their garden with the other dogs was another plus along with Bev's daily narrative of each event. Noah knows their home and is at the door before we are. We love our big baby and want only the best for him, we feel he get that plus on his vacay while in Bev and Chip's care. Thanks for all the love our big baby received while we were away on our vacation. We knew our pup was happy.

As usual, Kirby's stay with Bev and Chip was wonderful. He now thinks of their house as his second home. Bev does such a great job of keeping us in the loop regarding how Kirby is doing, including sending numerous texts, videos and pictures. We would be lost without such a wonderful place for our dog to stay when we leave town. Highly recommended!

Bev and Chip took good care of Ralphie, my cockapoo. Along with their own poodle and a couple of other doggie clients, Ralphie was part of a happy "pack" during my absence. They have a wonderful large enclosed yard for the dogs to run and play. Bev and Chip were also kind to send daily updates and photos of my little pooch. Much appreciated!

Julian had a great time with Beverley and Chip and the poodles. He enjoyed playing in the yard with the other dogs and feels right at home.

We have been able to enjoy Beverly and Chip's doggy hospitality a few times now with only good things to say. Hudson, our mix Chow/Lab enjoys his visits. We will no doubt be bringing Hudson to Bev and Chip in the future and I can only recommend them.
Beverley and Chip are very friendly and accommodating. They did whatever they could to make our dog Yoda feel at home. We forgot Yoda's food, and they said they would feed him their dogs's food. Yoda loved running and playing in their extra-large back yard, too. We certainly recommend them to others who are seeking quality dog care.

Olive enjoyed her time at Bev and Chip's again, perhaps a little too much this time. When she wasn't feeling well afterwards, they were great about checking up on her to make sure she was alright. It's nice that she can stay with folks who are attentive and caring.

Chip and Beverly were wonder dog sitters for our geriatric Dalmatian, Tucker. They were very accommodating when it came to scheduling a time for a meet 'n greet as well as for scheduling pick up / drop off times. They and their resident pups were very friendly and welcoming. During Tucker's stay with them, they sent a few pictures a day that showed us how much fun our dog was having. Also, they were able to easily accommodate our dog's special needs, including medications and some mobility issues. We will definitely ask Chip and Beverly to watch Tucker again in the future.

Beverly and Chip were wonderful hosts! My puppy loved playing in their big backyard with the other dogs. He sure is tuckered out now! It was so nice to know that our dog was being well card for while we were away.
Bev and Chip were fantastic hosts. They were very easy to communicate with, and replied to all of my inquiries quickly. They have a great yard for the dogs to play, and their poodles were so sweet and fun! Throughout the stay, they emailed daily with a brief update and pictures. They were very understanding and accommodating when my travel plans were slightly disrupted. Will definitly chose them for future stays!

- Awesome hosts - Close location - Other playmates - HUGE Yard - Lots of love Our dogs already miss them.
Bev and Chip, it is a great feeling of relief when we can leave Lucky in your trusted hands. We love your email updates and photos of Lucky having fun with the poodles and other dog boarders. We can't think of leaving him with anyone but you guys. Thanks so much for taking good care of him, I know he especially loves running after the poodles and being outside without a leash.
You guys are the best!
Thanks much!

Zeus enjoyed another pawsome vacay with Bev and Chip! He's already looking forward to his next dog vacay with them!! Knowing he was in such wonderful hands allowed me to enjoy my vacation. Thanks Bev and Chip!!
Awesome visit as always. Love the pictures and notes! Pippin loves his vacations with you and the poodles! Many thanks Bev & Chip - Kim
Bev and Chip are the best! They take great care of my little girl and her special needs. And I love the pictures and emails that Bev sends to let me know why she's doing.
Bev and Chip have been the most wonderful hosts for our beloved Kirby. Kirby has stayed with them many time and will continue to do so. His most recent stay was while we were overseas for more than a week. Bev and Chip sent us frequent updates and pictures of the goings-on at the house, which gave us peace of mind while we were far away that he was having a wonderful time. We cannot recommend Bev and Chip more highly!

Daisy had another great visit with Bev and Chip, but seemed most excited to see Xolani and Arabia!! We always feel so comfortable leaving Daisy in their care.
Bev and Chip provided outstanding care for my shelties. They truly care for the animals and want them to have a good time during their stay there. I would without hesitation recommend them to any one who has pets and cares for them. Nicolas
Once again, Penny had a wonderful experience with Beverley and Chip. Although she was happy to see me, she whimpered a bit as I drove away. I can't think of anyone else I would want as my dog's caretaker when I am away. Thanks again, Bev and Chip!

Bev and Chip were great! They sent me pictures daily to show me how much my dog was enjoying their spacious and well-manicured backyard. They also sent emails periodically to provide updates on what my pup was up to each day. Totally gave me peace of mind while I was traveling and I can't wait to use them again!

Outstanding host, both Bev and husband Chip. Our Noah was there for just under 2 weeks, this was the first time we had been away from him for this length of time, so we were a bit concerned. After our meet and greet, we were completely won over. They gave our big baby complete run of the house, sent pictures and emails daily, called when there was a concern about his eating, he had the company of their two lovely poodles. Additional plus.. awesome fenced in back yard and garden for him to play in. We will be returning. We highly recommend them both~

This was Lucky's first time staying with anyone other than a family member, and our experience was Pawsome! Lucky is usually a very shy dog and it takes him a while to warm up to strangers, however, he connected immediately with Aunt Bev, Uncle Chip and their poodles. It was also very comforting to receive emails with photos of Lucky having fun. We think Lucky had more fun than we did. LoL We recommend Bev and Chip highly, and we hope they can accommodate Lucky again in the near future. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

Wonderful as always. Lots of picture sent to keep me relaxed on my vacation! A special place!
Another excellent stay with Aunty Bev and Uncle Chip! Pippin said he had a wonderful time!!!! Kim
Bev and Chip have become Sadies home away from home and I wouldnt feel comfortable leaving her with anyone else but them. Bev, Chip, and their sweet pups, Arabia and Zolani are the perfect hosts and playmates!!!!
Awesome is the only word to describe our experience. Bev and Chip are awesome and Gunner enjoyed his visit with their dogs. The pictures they sent during our vacation meant so much. Thanks and we will definitely use Bev and Chip again in the future.
Every time I travel, I try to take my dog Zeus with me. When that was not possible, I have previously left him with friends/family or boarded him. None of these previous alternatives come close to the experience had with Bev and Chip. In summary, I have never been more comfortable with piece of mind than the recent experience of leaving Zeus in their care. What makes this experience so special and comforting include: an initial meet and greet, daily contact via email and text to include pictures of Zeus enjoying his doggy vacay in Bev and Chip's home...all presented from Zeus' perspective - which gave it both a personal and comforting tone. This allowed me to relax and enjoy my cousin's wedding. When I went to pick up Zeus, although he was happy to see me, I am not convinced he wanted to leave Bev, Chip, and his two new poodle buddies. This will always be my first option - underscore, always - when leaving Zeus behind on future trips. Bev and Chip, I can't thank you enough for taking such great care of my little Chihuahua, Zeus.

We are incredibly happy with our Olive's stay with Beverley and Chip. We loved getting updates on her stay and she seemed to really enjoy her time there. They were also very understanding when our return trip turned into a bit of a mess. We will definitely be leaving Olive with them again.

As usual, I was extremely happy with Penny's experience with Beverley and Chip. She is always so happy to stay with them and I am sure she misses them when I take her home.She has boarded at many different places but this is the best one!
Whether you live 5 miles or 25 miles from Bev and chip, make them your first choice in dog sitting. No one takes better care than they do of your pet and always make you feel welcome..stress free pet sitting, updates and full attention to your dogs needs is their priority. You don't regret it, they are TOP QUALITY CARE!

Bev and Chip made us feel so comfortable leaving Maddie in their care while we were on vacation. This was the first time we left Maddie instead of having her travel with us, and Bev and Chip were not only incredibly professional but extremely caring and loving people with Maddie, which put us at ease. They took Maddie right into the poodle pack and treated her like family. We are so grateful to them for taking such great care of our pooch!

Beverley and Chip took excellent care of my babies!
It was the first time for boarding our Hudson so we were a little anxious about it. But Beverly, Chip and their 2 Poodles were the perfect hosts. Hudson was happy and had a great time with the poodles and will surely be back again.
Thanks for a wonderful weekend, Lois & Tinley had fun.
Lexie has stayed with Beverly and Chip several times and it is always great
Gracie seemed to have a wonderful time staying with Bev and Chip and their pups. Bev and Chip were great about accommodating her medications and her tendencies to pee a lot, which I greatly appreciated. I particularly enjoyed receiving texts and photos from Bev showing me how Gracie was doing. I would definitely like for Gracie to to return for another visit, and recommend Bev and Chip highly!

Bev and Chip are wonderful hosts and I will definitely call on them in the future. Bev did a great job of sending daily updates with photos. Rocky had so much fun playing with their two dogs, Arabia and Zolani, that he wasn't too keen to say goodbye. He is already looking forward to his next visit!

As always, Bev and chip took great care of Tito. He loves being with their family and looks forward to going back to see them. The daily picture and text updates have you focused on your vacation and not on worry. They are THE BEST dog sitters ever.
Bev and Chip took absolutely wonderful care of our dog, Cooper. They were so sweet and welcoming, and I could tell Cooper would be treated as part of their family (they even let him sleep in bed with them!). Bev and Chip have 2 of their own dogs who are so friendly and make GREAT playmates. Their large back yard was such a treat for Cooper - he loved it! I was initially nervous about having to leave Cooper with people I didn't know, but Bev immediately put me at ease because it was obvious how much care she'd give to Cooper. I'm so grateful to them for keeping him safe and happy. We will definitely return!

This is our second time leaving our dog with Bev and Chip and we will never leave him with anyone else. Thank you so much for all that you do, Bev and Chip!
Thank you Bev & Chip for your outstanding service for our dogs while we were away for Thanksgiving. It feels good to know that there are great people like yourselves who go the extra mile to take care of the dogs. You're compassion with our dog was incredible and we really appreciate it very much.

I know Lois & Tinley will be happy to stay with you when we plan our next trip/weekend getaway.

Thank you.

This was our first experience with Chip and Bev and we can honestly say it will not be the last. Because Daisy is a puppy mill rescue it was very important to us to place her with someone that would not crate her. After our initial meet and greet, we felt totally comfortable leaving her in their care. We really appreciated the daily updates and photos we received from Bev. We were able to relax while we were on vacation knowing that Daisy was safe and on vacation also! We may even have to schedule regular play dates with Xolani and Arabia. I would absolutely recommend Chip and Bev to anyone who loves their pet!

We could not have asked for anything more. It was great to know that Bailey was confortable and at home with Bev and Chip. Their Text messages and Emials with pictures was a nice touch and made us feel good that Bailey was in good hands. Highly recommend their sevice and have already made my next reservation for Bailey to stay with Bev and Chip.

sorry for the late review, I had tried twice and it didnt post!
I can not say enough wonderful things about this family! I was very impressed with the entire experience, the close proximity to where I live and the wonderful dogs they have. Not only did Tito have NO issues when he returned home except being wore out from play time, I think he wanted to go back! Tito usually has stomach issues when he returns but they obviously treated him properly with treats and food...such a relief!! Tito and I are both looking forward to his next trip over to Bev's house...I wouldn't think twice about it. Bev runs this service like a true professional.
Thank you!!

We were very happy with the love and care that our dog received from Bev and Chip. They kept us updated every day with a text and pictures which made our vacation more worry free. We knew that our dog was in good hands and he felt right at home on his doggy vacay. We would not hesitate to have our dog stay with Bev and Chip again.

This was Sadies 2nd stay with Bev and Chip and I once again dont have enough words to say how wonderful they are... Their home is becoming her home away from home and I couldnt be more pleased with the care and love she receives while we're away!!
Beverly was amazing - I almost hesitate to write this review in case it makes her even busier. Her home is set on a hill with a really lush back yard, perfect for hounding. She was great with dogs, sent us a text with a photo, and even set out his tapestry on the couch for him to sit on! We really appreciated her ability to take him in the last minute and her flexibility with drop off and pick up.

Beverley and Chip were wonderful to Bodhi and Bodhi made buddies with their poodles too. I was able to relax on my trip, knowing that Bodhi was in great hands. I really appreciated the text updates and pictures of Bodhi that Bev sent to me every day. I highly recommend Beverley and Chip and will definitely use their services again!

I was gone for almost two weeks and felt very happy that Lexie was in great hands. Bev kept me informed with texts, e-mails and pictures which were a lot of trouble as I was out of the country. Lexie has had some eating issues and Bev went out of her way to entice her with all variety of combinations and goodies. They are great

This was our dog's second stay with Bev and Chip, and we were extremely pleased with the care they gave him. In particular, our dog needed medication during his stay, and Bev and Chip did a great job of giving the medication and keeping us informed about his medical status. Our dog had a wonderful time and came home happy and healthy. We definitely will be coming back to Bev and Chip for all of our dog-sitting needs!

Bev and Chip were wonderful hosts for George. He became part of their family and was totally comfortable there. We left for a two-week trip and felt so at ease knowing George was in such good care. I would definitely send George back again.
As usual, Penny loved staying with Beverley and Chip. Their own 2 little poodles are also "other dog" friendly and always engage with her. Sad to say, she almost looks "down" when I take her home. It is really good to know that I can always count on them to care for her when I am away.

They are golden. My dog is having some eating issues and Bev kept me completely up to date. My only problem is they are getting too popular - Thanksgiving is sold out!!
Bayleigh had a great time. She loved playing with the other dogs in the big back yard. Very nice people, would use again.
Bev and Chip were really good with my "baby", a 7y old Jack Russell, who is a bit of a barker. They made Spike feel at home and Chip even helped him getting better with his barking. He might have gotten a better vacation than I did.
I will certainly leave Spike with them again when needed.

Reese is skittish with new people, but I had no doubt she would be comfortable with Beverley & Chip in no time - and she was. She was even able to talk them in to letting her sleep in the people bed! Reese had an absolute blast playing with the other dogs and I know she'd love to go there again. I was given updates daily and got a picture or two as well. I look forward to boarding my dog with them again.

We are so glad to have found Bev and Chip to take care of our beloved dog, Kirby. They have a great house with a big backyard for dogs who need plenty of exercise. They are very warm and caring, and have been extremely responsive and flexible. They clearly care very much about the dogs they are hosting. We received frequent updates while we were away (including pictures!), and Kirby appeared very happy and well cared-for when we picked him up after a 3-day getaway. It is so important for us to know that our boy is happy, healthy and safe when we are away, and we definitely would not trust just anyone with our dog. We will be using Bev and Chip again, and we would highly recommend them to anyone.

Above and beyond is an understatement when describing the care that Bev and Chip provided our dog, Brodie. From our very first meet and greet, they made us all feel right at home. Not only are they responsive and professional, but they clearly love dogs and treat their guests with the same love, affection, and devotion they give to their own "kids", Xolani and Arabia. We received mutliple messages/pictures with updates. Brodie was clearly in his element in their large backyard and playing with the other pups. It is so wonderful to see people who truly love what they do. We feel so fortunate to have found Bev and Chip and they have completely diminished any anxiety about having to go out of town without Brodie in the future because we know we can leave him in their capable hands!

Thank you again, Bev and Chip!

Bev and Chip were great hosts for my dog's eight night visit. I received multiple texts and emails with pics and messages about how much fun my dog was having. They were very accommodating with my schedule and have a large back yard which my dog thoroughly enjoyed. I had no worries for my dogs safety or happiness while I was out of town

Bev and Chip were very responsive and attentive to our dog's needs. He got along very well with their dogs and their space is terrific for a dog: a nice fenced-in backyard for dogs to run and around in and play.
This home away from home is awesome. It is like a mini vacation home for your four legged friends. Bev and Chip really care for your pup like it is their own. They are very responsible dog owners, and they send daily updates with pictures. We left our pup for nine days and he loved his stay! Highly recommended!

We left our 10 month old mixed breed Sadie with Chip and Bev for 5 days last month.. Cannot say enough good things about them or the experience for both Sadie and us.. We received daily text and pictures of Sadie playing with their 2 sweet pups which was a highlight especially for our kids.. HUGE, safe backyard with lots of room to run and play.. They treated her as one of their own and we know Sadie looks forward to spending time at their home again...We will definitely be repeat customers!

Sadie loved staying with Bev and Chip. Their house is well suited for a canine vacation. The fenced in yard is a dog's paradise. Sadie loved Bev's and Chip's two poodles and I could tell that they had become fast friends by the end of her visit. I would highly recommend Bev and Chip as hosts for your dog - you can tell from the minute you meet them that they love dogs and they are very conscientious people. I felt perfectly comfortable leaving Sadie. I was afraid she wouldn't want to leave Auntie Bev's house! Overall, this was a great experience start to finish and I am so thankful that I have found a second home for my dog.

Sami was such a happy pup after her stay with Bev and Chip. Bev really goes the extra mile making the whole experience better than I could have hoped for. I would absolutely send Sami to them again.
This was my second experience with Beverley and Chip and I was very pleased. They are so good to my dog that she seems unhappy when we leave!
I was so happy that our dogs bonded so well with Beverley and her family from the moment we did the home visit. Both Lois & Tinley were very happy and I look forward to future stays for them with Bev. Thank you so much Bev.
It was an overall great experience! I could tell when I arrived to pick up my dog that she loved being there. I will definitely request her services again.
