About Philip

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I adopted our wonderful dog, Gunter, 3 years ago from a rescue. He loves to play with all dogs both big and small and would welcome your dog with open paws :)

Gunter enjoys walks along the lakewalk, which is only a few blocks from our house. He also relishes romping along the beaches where he can find sticks, swim, and sniff to his heart's content. In the evening, he finds that curling up in bed with us for a good belly rub is the best way to end his day.

Your dog would be provided the same luxuries in order to ensure their stay with us would be pawsome!

We both work during the week, but are typically available all weekend long.

Barclay emerged from his doggie vacay happy and well cared for. Philip kept us updated with e-mails and photos.
I had problems booking, but once I had help with customer service it went smoothly. Phillip and his wife Julie were wonderful. They were very helpful and easy to work with.i loved the fact they went for walks daily. I will use them again.
Philip & Julie (and Gunter!) were fantastic. They were flexible in meeting our schedule requests.
Nutmeg had a great time -- no reluctance at all on her part to stay & play -- which means she felt right at home! Will definitely ask them to provide day care again whenever we are in Duluth.
We were staying the day in Duluth and needed place for our Lulu and Bosco to chill while we did the tourist tour of Duluth. Phillip was great and very accommodating and took great care of our two pups for us.
This was our first time boarding Rosie and everything went smoothly. Philip and Julie have a calm energy and their dog Gunter is sweet. Plan to use them again in the future.
Excellent care and service! Flexible with our pick-up time and so nice! Their own German shepherd is well-trained, and I had no worries leaving my 6-pound dog with them.
We took a last minute trip and Philip was great! Worked with our crazy schedule and our dog Lola must have enjoyed all the play time with Gunter as she slept the whole ride back home. Would recommend and would definitely rebook the next time we are in the area!
Philip and Julie were wonderful to work with. Our dog Ellie enjoyed her stay there and we would definitely book with them again!
Philip was great. We needed weird times and there was even a power outage and he still took Ringo! It was fantastic!
Very flexible and did great with Rascal!
Philip and Julie were awesome! They respond very quickly to any questions and they took awesome care of Burn-E! We are looking forward to the next time we visit Duluth because we know Burn will have a excellent place to stay.
Sparky always has fun with Philip and Julie and Gunter. Thanks for another great stay!
Philip was an excellent host for our 6mo Shiloh Shepherd female. He was very reachable, very flexible, and very tolerant of such a young guest! This was my first time using DogVacay, and I'm so fortunate that Philip was gracious enough to fill me in on so many details before and after her overnight stay with him.
I have never left Waylon with people I didn't know, so I was a little anxious. I shouldn't have been. He had a blast with them. He was well taken care of. I would use them again!
Philip was very concerned and helpful. Understood our difficulty. I would recommend him to everybody. Bob
Philip was great to work with and very accommodating! Bear had some anxiety issues being away from us but they made him feel at home!
Very nice people, Bessie said they were wonderful.
Phil was very responsive and flexible with our needs. We appreciated the extra love he gave our pup during her stay.
Beau had a great day with Philip and Julie. He will be very happy to come and see you on our next trip to Duluth. Thanks for making Beau's day so special.
Excellent care. Kept us informed daily. Their dog was a plus as a companion for Speedo. Nice to know Speedo has a home away from home when we need to be out of town! I been telling my all friends with dogs who are looking for this kind of quality care.
On short notice Phillip helped us out with our puppy Bear! It was nice to leave Bear in a family home and able to pick him up later in the evening. Phillip's dog was very approachable for our puppy and when we picked up Bear later that evening they were pals. We were very satisfied with the website for Dog Vacay, and very satisfied with our host; Phillip.
Appreciated the fact that Philip was flexible with drop off and pick up times for me and Izzy. Posted a photo for me to see that Izzy was doing fine at their home. Izzy enjoyed her time there and now wants to walk by their house and visit!
Thank you so very much! My furbaby Zeus had a great time! Philip helped me relax on our vacation, he gave us updates and sent pictures of Zeus. Zeus absolutely loved it there. He was well taken care of. I will always ask Philip first to watch Zeus if we go on vacation again.
Philip was an exceptional host. He answered an unusual request - for only several hours of care - while we were traveling away from home. It worked out beautifully; our pups had a fantastic time!
