ABOUT US:
Our home will offer your dog lots of attention and playtime. We have four young boys mixed with a whole lot of activity at the house. Your dogs will be active and exhausted throughout the day. We also have a Chesapeake Bay Retriever that gets along with all dogs; she will help acclimate your dog to our home. We have a FULL fenced in yard with plenty of room to run. We ask that your dog is KID & DOG friendly as typically it's busy here. We will respect and follow your dog's routine and care. If you create, we will create. If they are not allowed on a couch, we will do what you do & so on. Dogs will sleep anywhere as the beds are always full!!! Typically dogs will have free roam of our home and be treated like our dog. All dogs settle right on in after and hour or so and fit right on in with the family. Pictures will typically be sent throughout the day to cell or webpage. We want your experience to be relaxing too! Your dog will be exhausted by the end of each day and never know you left.
We prefer your pets spayed & neutered but is not a must. Unfortunately we do not accept any Pitbull, Pit mix. Your dog MUST BE HOUSE BROKEN. Puppies are exceptions but extra fee per night will be discussed at meet & greet. Included with this I will work with training and reinforcing commands with the puppies. With that stated, accidents do occur with younger and non spayed dogs more often than expected. It is an unfortunate part of the business but with a high volume of dogs and scents, an expensive domino effects can take place. This is why they may be declined or an extra fee may be required.

PICK UP & DROP OFF:
Please be mindful of pick & drop off times, visit charge is for a roughly a 24 hour period. A custom quote with be sent if the pick up and drop off times are longer than normal. Early drop off / later pick up following day. A CUSTOM QUOTE will be send if need be. We are flexible but unfortunately we need to address this issue as the site only recognizes an evening stay.

YOUR PETS:
Please share with us all concerns or issues that your dog may have during our meet and greet sessions. It is not fair to us finding out new information while you are dropping off your dog, ESPECIALLY bowel or bladder problems.

TRAINING:
I would be happy to work with your dog including puppy training and any issues that may need improvement or areas that you may not be able to correct. I can work with most issues, barking, walking, jumping, basic discipline, basic commands, socializing and a few other things. Typically in 3-5 sessions (1-2 hours) you will have enough assistance and information to work with you dog and continue to improve to make a better dog. YOUR help is necessary for the progress training and a key to the success. There are no guarantees but improvement will be noticed. Referrals can be given upon request. Also, I am willing to come to you and train in your environment.

Thank you for checking us out, we won't disappoint !

Very happy with the services provided by Steve & Kristal. Moe was well cared for and came home a happy dog. They have a nice fenced in yard and he had full rights to the entire house. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend.
This was the first time that our dog, Chooch, was left with any one other than family. He is a 12 lb Havanese. I think Mother was more anxious than dog. We had a great "Meet and Greet" and he didn't seem anxious when we dropped him off. When we picked up Chooch you could tell that he had a wonderful experience. The best compliment I can give is "Happy Dog - Happy Mom". I would highly recommend Steve and Kristal.

He had a terrific play weekend with you and your other super friendly doggie friends !!! We would 10 star you to all of our friends and family !!! Thanks to kind animal loving people like you, we can comfortably plan our next trip with no worries!

Lefty had a wonderful time at Steve and Kristal's!! He came home happy and VERY tired!! I could tell from all of the pictures that he was so comfortable there and loved playing with all of the other sweet dogs. We will be back! On a side note, I would like to personally thank Steve and Kristal for being so accommodating and flexible! Great people!!

Another great visit! By now, our dog Rosa knows Steve and Kristal well and was excited to be back for yet another visit. Such a relief to have this option!
Dogs loved being there, and I got regular photo updates. There were no issues and I would use them again.
Steve and Kristal are very accommodating and flexible. I have used them a couple of times this past summer and they were very easy to deal with. The most recent stay they were not even available and they were more than accommodating in opening their schedule so our boy had a place to stay. They send pictures often and our dog really seems to enjoy himself there. They have a nice clean home and spacious yard for the pups to play in. When you find great dog sitters such as Steve and Kristal-you don't give anyone else even a thought when going out of town. They are literally the best!

Steve, Kristal and their boys were great! This was our first time leaving our 3 golden retrievers in the care of someone other than family or friends. Our youngest one had lots of fun playing with the other dogs in their care. He actually slept in the first morning after we picked them up. The older two were content to just lay around and watch the sites, nap or receive pets. The pictures they sent us during the boys stay were awesome. We always looked forward to new ones. We would definitely use them again to watch our fur babies.

Cobbler had a wonderful vacation with Steve, Kristal, and their family. He settled right in, snuggling with everyone, and loved exploring the big yard! We enjoyed receiving updates and pictures of his stay. It was comforting knowing that he felt at home and that he loved being "part of the family".

Crosby had the best time at Steve and Kristal's. I was very worried as our dog has never stayed elsewhere and has never been created. A kennel was not an option. Our dog was right at home with an active family with kids just like ours. They cared for our dog as if it was their own and adjusted to our dog's temperament when I cautioned she preferred women over men. Kristal had a shadow for a dog all week! Crosby had plenty of room to run in the fenced yard. Regular communications and photos allowed us to enjoy our vacation. We will def be back.

Ben loves staying with Steve and Kristal. In the past, he had been so anxious going to a kennel. He accommodates well to the just like home atmosphere. Kristal sends us frequent updates and pictures so we can relax knowing he is well cared for!
Our dog had a great time and Steve and Kristal were great. Ben can't wait to go back!
Steve and Kristal were great! They were so kind in sending lots of pictures. We feel so confident with them and think that with their patience, we came home to a better behaved dog! I highly recommend them!
We could not be more happy with the care that our dog received while staying with Steve and Kristal. The updates and pictures of Lev we received during the week made being away from him a lot easier. We will definitely be bringing our dog to them again in the future and have recommended Steve and Kristal to others.

We had a wonderful experience with Steve and Kristal. Our 10yo dog Ronin stayed with them for 2 weeks and from the moment he arrived they were so attentive and caring. Steve is a great leader of the pack and Kristal kept us constantly informed of his holiday with lots of pictures. Ronin had a wonderful time, met lots of new fur friends, and was so relaxed when we arrived to pick him up. He was exhausted for the next 3 days, sleeping constantly, after all the fun he had. I would recommend Steve and Kristal to anyone and will be using their services again in a few short weeks. Thanks guys!

Kristal and Steve are the best! Daisy always has a great time and comes home tired but very happy! I love the pictures that are sent showing me how well she is doing. I don't worry about Daisy when I drop her off and can enjoy my time away from her.

Our dog had a great experience staying here. Friendly place lots of pictures
Our beagle, Daisy, stayed with Steve and Kristal for the day. She appeared to be very relaxed and comfortable there (if the photos they sent of her sleeping contented on the sofa are any indication), and they were flexible with pick-up and drop-off times which made our day easier as well. We would definitely book with them in the future.

Kristal and Steve were great! They worked with me for timing to drop off and pick up. They treated my dog like he was their own and they sent me pics of him throughout the day so that I could see he was comfortable and relaxed! When I picked Buster up, Buster was whining because he wanted to go outside and play with the kids and other dog. Usually when I've left my dog at other places, he's pulling me to get out. I truly feel like I left my dog with family instead of at a place where employees come and go. I will ABSOLUTELY use Kristal and Steve again to take care of my dog! Thank you so much!!!

First time we left our dog for a whole week but our energetic dog came home happy and tired. Lots of interaction, photos and playtime. We are so happy with Krystal and Steve and look forward to many more playdates!
Steve and Kristal you are the best of the best. Getting the updates and pictures of Ziva running and playing made my vacation so much more enjoyable knowing she was in good hands. Thank you .
Steve and Kristal provided excellent care for our Labrador retriever in a family environment. Our dog was there for 11 days and we received pictures and updates. They have a large yard and she was exercised well. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing she was comfortable and happy with another young active family. We will definitely have Steve and Kristal care for her again!

Dear Krystal and Steve,
Tuki came home a happy camper...and tired.
She showed no signs of the usual separation anxiety. We were reassured that she was in a good, no, great place by all the photos. Thank you and we look forward to another great experience soon.

Great experience! We didn't like the idea of our dog Rosa being miserable in a kennel while we were away, and thought we'd give Steve & Kristal a try. So glad we did! We dropped our dog Rosa off and within a minute she was busy chasing a bee in their fenced-in backyard. When we picked her up, she was her normal happy self--unlike when we tried a doggie daycare for a few hours and she came back a little shell shocked. Steve and Kristal sent photos of Rosa playing during her stay, which was fun and helped to reassure us that all was well. Overall, we felt like as though she received care that was loving and responsible--which allowed us to have a worry free mini-vacation. We think Rosa did too.

Our dog's stay with at Steve & Kristal's went very well. Drop off and pick up was smooth. Steve and Kristal sent us updates and pictures on an almost daily basis and were very easy to deal with. They offered him a safe and friendly place to stay and whole process was easy. We would board our dog with them again.

It was our first time using dogvacay and we will use it again. Steve and Kristal were so wonderful to our baby girl -- Stella. She was well taken care of. Kristal kept us updated with great pictures of Stella during her stay. We knew that their place was perfect for our baby girl because Stella walked in without shaking and without saying goodbye to us. She came back to us all nice and clean and well rested :) We plan to use Steve and Kristal again for our future vacations. They made our vacation relaxing and enjoyable. We didn't have to worry about Stella once. Steve and Kristal made all of us worry free. I'm going to recommend them to all of our friends. Thank you for a great first time experience with dogvacay

Steve and Kristal were wonderful dog sitters! They were sweet and affectionate with Callie and gave her lots of playtime. Steve has a great understanding of dogs and what makes them tick. There were other dogs there throughout the 4 days Callie spent with them but since she is very socialized with other dogs, it was not a problem. We will definitely call on them again when we have need and would highly recommend them to others.

Our dog (4 year old lab) enjoyed her time with Steve and Kristal and their family. They took really good care of her, giving her time to play and a comfortable place to rest. And lots of love. We are happy that we found a great place for our dog to stay when we are not home to be with her.

Steve and Kristal are great and so flexible with drop off and pick up times. Sophie gets so excited to visit. AND When I picked Sophie up Kristal had a wonderful tin of homemade chocolate covered pretzels for me!! They were yummy!! We will be back again soon for daycare.

Steve & Kristal were great Bam-Bam was happy when we dropped him off and picked him up. Was a great experience. Glad to know we didn't have to worry about our dog for the night. We will use Steve & Kristal again and highly recommend them for you.
We just picked Chloe up from her first stay with Steve, Kristal and the boys. Our experience with Steve and Kristal was awesome! From the meet and greet, to the drop off to the pick up. Kristal sent pics and updates each day. I know Chloe was in great hands. She came home exhausted after all the fun in her first Blizzard!! We definitely found our go to dog sitters! Thanks guys!

We took Roxy, our 4 month old puppy, to Steve and Kristal's house this past Saturday. I was a little nervous leaving her behind because it was the 1st time she'd be without us since we adopted her. However, once we showed up and met them, we knew she'd be in good hands. Throughout the day, they sent 2 text messages to let us know she was settling in nicely. When we brought her home, she was exhausted from playing all day. She has another visit with them this weekend! We're happy we found them! Thank you, Steve and Kristal (and Sadie and kids!)! We'll see you this weekend :)

We had to leave our new pet for the first time with a sitter for a long stay, and were very stressed about it. We are so glad that we found Steve and Kristal. They are awesome and our vacation was really peaceful knowing that our dog was in great hands. Our family looked forward to receiving updates and we did get prompt updates, from Kristal, every day with pictures of our dog. Thanks Steve and Kristal for taking care of Ace and we will happily leave him with you any time we have to be away!

Penny seemed to love staying here once again! She has slept all day since coming home. We got great photo updates throughout the week.
Steve and Kristal are the best! Once again my pooch was made to feel so welcome in their home! He enjoyed his time there as seen by all the cute photos the hosts sent me! When I go out of town, I feel my dog is staying with loving, caring pet owners and their boys really enjoy my dog too. It's a vacation for my pet. Highly recommended these hosts!

Henry's first dogvacay with Steve and Kristal K was great. They were kind and positive and very helpful getting him acclimated. They sent pictures to let us know all was well.
We just picked Maisy up after a week long vacation with Steve & Kristal. She had a blast!!
Kristal is amazing sending daily photos and messages about the dog's day. It's so nice that our dog gets to interact with other dogs and Steve & Kristal's boys--something she never gets to do at our empty house!
Thanks again for the best care!

Once again, Molly had a fantastic time with Steve & Kristal! She seems to love playing with the other dogs and all of the attention and love she gets from their family. We received pictures and updates all throughout her stay, which always puts at ease and let's us relax knowing she's in good hands. We also love knowing she is getting lots of outdoor time in the backyard. We definitely recommend Steve & Kristal!

Alby had a wonderful time visiting with Steve and Kristal. I loved getting updates and seeing what a great time he was having with Sadie and the other pups. He was pooped when he came home Sunday! Thanks to you both!
I can' t say enough positive things. Krystal sent pictures and updates a number of times and Pepper was really at home the the family. Wonderful.
My dog stayed with Steve and Kristal for four days. I always felt my dog was in good hands and with a nice family who cared about him. They sent me pictures twice to assure me he was a happy camper. Very nice couple who I would highly recommend! Already made reservations to have my pooch is stay with them in a few months.

As always, Herbie loved his day at DogVacay! He is so happy when he gets there, he immediately runs to the front door, and then out to play in the back yard! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
Steve, Kristal and family were wonderful with my 10yr. old lab Casey. They took great care of her and kept me updated with pictures and notes the whole time I was away. She even ate good for them which surprised me! Thanks for taking such good care of me Casey!!

Scout is now happily napping after a fun stay with her friends. She's always happy to see Steve and Kristal and (thankfully) always happy to have us pick her up. I think she likes coming home so that she can rest up after her fun days of playing. :)

Steve and Kristal were great hosts! Penny seemed like she had a great time running around in their backyard and playing with other dogs. I got daily picture updates which I loved and I felt like Penny was well taken care of. Thanks guys!
Steve and Kristal were great. I received regular updates and Bettis was very content at their home. He usually doesn't eat in a strange environment but ate every meal for them so I know he was feeling comfortable and happy! He got a lot if exercise and play time, too!

Our rescue dog had a great week with Kristal and Steve! I knew she was in great hands and appreciated all of the photos they sent all week! I highly recommend Kristal and Steve, they are awesome.
This was our 1st time having our dogs stay with Steve & Kristal. I loved the regular updates and pictures of the dogs at play during their stay. It was very comforting to see that they were being well looked after.
Maisy had a blast as always!
Herbie had a great time as usual! Steve and Kristal do a great job with the dogs, and it feels really good to have found such good people to take care of Herbie!
My dog Rigby had a great time with Steve & Kristal and the boys! She came home happy and exhausted! Thanks for taking good care of her and for keeping me updated on how she was doing.
Our little guy Mason stayed with Kristal, Steve, and their kids in August of 2014 while my husband and I were busy getting married :) It was our first time using dogvacay and Kristal and Steve made us feel very comfortable during our meet and greet and we knew that we didn't have to worry about Mason during such an important time in our lives. He had such a blast that he even made an appearance in their pictures! Would highly recommend Steve & Kristal.

Scout came home from her vacation exhausted but happy. I'm quite sure she gets more exercise with the other dogs at Steve & Kristal's than she does at home. She loves sleeping with the boys and running around with the dogs.

Thanks a bunch for the daily pictures!

Once again, Molly had a wonderful stay at Steve & Kristal's! We are truly able to enjoy our vacation knowing she is in good hands, and we love receiving photo updates throughout her stay!
Fez had the best time! Kristal, Steve, and their boys took fantastic care of him. We felt very comfortable from the start with them. We loved getting regular updates with pictures of all the fun he was having. It's the perfect place to leave you pets and we will be using them again for sure! Thanks guys!

Maverick loves Kristal, Steve and boys- He is certainly right at home there. He gets lots of attention and love while we are away. They are the best! Thanks K Family!
We were confident that are dogs were doing fine thanks to the many photos that Steve and Kristal sent. When we picked the dogs up they had obviously been well treated. We would definitely use them again
As always Herbie had a great time playing with some other dog "vacationers", and came home tired and happy! Thank you, Steve and Kristal, for taking good care of him!
Steve & Kristal are amazing! Maisy had an awesome time and didn't want to come home. I loved getting daily pictures of Maisy and updates. We can't wait to use Steve & Kristal again...thanks so much!
Herbie seems to have had a great time as usual! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
Maverick loved his time with Steve and Kristal and family - He had so much fun every day that I think he didn't miss us to much. We loved the pictures and update we got each day.
Herbie seemed to have had a good time as always, and he will be going back again for another stay very soon!
Steve, Kristal and the boys are the best! They love Tobias and he loves going to visit.
Our dog had a great dog vacay, making new friends and finding cozy spots to hang out in Steve and Kristal's house. Steve and Kristal sent some pictures of her in action and hanging out and they brought big smiles to our faces knowing our dog was happy and being well cared for while you're away. She was completely content and adjusted when we picked her up from a 4 day stay, went home and back to her normal routine. They were super responsive from the start and flexible to arrange the meet up and drop-off and pick-up times. We have visits #2 and #3 already booked!

This was Dakota's second visit with Steve and Kristal. He loves it there, I know he's well taken care of. I have absolutely no reservations bringing Dakota to stay with Kristal, Steve and their gang. Thanks much!
I had to go overseas for a business trip and I left Rex with Steve & Kristal. They were wonderful with Rex. They are dog lovers and understand dogs. Rex had lots of fun staying there. He came home happy and exhausted. They are highly recommended. I will definitely be boarding Rex with them again.

Steve & Kristal are FANTASTIC!!! I was worried because I had to call them last minute but they took Tobias with no problem. Great relief for me. Tobias loves it there and is always excited to go. He loves their boys. It's his home away from home and we couldn't be more grateful to have found such a wonderful family!

I feel totally comfortable leaving Sophie with Steve and Kristal and their 4 boys. She gets lots of love and attention, gets tired out playing with their dog Sadie and even gets to sleep in Steve and Kristal's bed. What more could I ask for? They are great hosts and I would highly recommend them.

Herbie got very excited as soon as we mentioned going to visit with Joey and Sadie, and he ran straight out to the backyard, when we got there. He did not even seem to care that we left! He loves going there, and we are thrilled to have found such a great place to leave him.

I'm so happy to have found Steve & Kristal. This was Nila's 3rd time staying with them and when I pulled up to the house to drop her off, she got all excited and ran happily to Kristal to say hello. I hate leaving my baby girl when I go on vacation, but knowing that she is in a happy loving home makes it easier. Kristal sends me great pictures of Nila playing and relaxing, and I can tell that my dog is enjoying her time away from home. Really a fantastic home away from home for my puppy love.

Steve and Kristal were great with Willow. This was our first time using Dog Vacay, but they eased any concerns immediately. Of course being dog lovers, we missed our puppy... but they sent photos of Willow hanging out at their home, which did our hearts good also. I highly recommend this family, and if we need to find a host home again, they'll be the first ones we contact. Thank you, Steve, Kristal and family! (including their dog!)

Dempsey came home very worn out. Steve and Kristal were super nice and sent a lot of pictures, which we appreciated! We will definitely be boarding Dempsey with them again in the future!
Like many, we consider our dog [Jack] a dearly beloved member of our family, which is why it was always so difficult and worrisome for us to leave him out of our care for more than a day or two at a time. While we were very happy with our doggy day care, we knew it wouldn't be in Jack's best interest to spend more than a full day there. After meeting several different people on dogvacay.com, we were becoming somewhat discouraged, until we were fortunate enough to meet the Kowalczyk family! I clearly recall going to our car after our initial meeting and saying "that family is incredible...I'm so glad we don't have to look for anybody else!" Steve and Kristal are absolutely wonderful people and their boys all love dogs, one more than the next. We know Jack loves spending time with their family and we are now able to go away and be completely at peace with Jack's well-being. If you're looking for a family who will love your dog as their own while you're away from home and unable to do so yourself, we whole-heartedly recommend the Kowalczyk's!

We couldn't have been more at ease leaving Molly with Kristal and Steve. Kristal really treated Molly as if she were one of her own! Molly enjoyed having a large, fenced in yard to play in and all of the cuddling and affection she received. Kristal was very flexible with our schedule which made it even easier on us. She even sent us the most adorable pictures throughout the weekend, which we loved receiving. We would definitely recommend Kristal and Steve to anyone!!!

As usual, Tobias came home happy and exhausted....He is so happy to spend time with Steve, Kristal and the boys.
Kristal, Steve, and their children were all very sweet with my 8 yr old doberman. When I picked her up she didn't want to leave she just kept walking around getting a different family member to pet her.
I will happily trust them to care for my dog next time I'm out of town. Thank you!

Herbie seems to love his DogVacay stays with Steve and Kristal. We are thrilled to have found such a good place, and am looking forward to let Herbie spend a lot of time with them.
I just wanted to say what a pleasant experience it was with Steve, Kristal and the kids watching Chewiee for us. The pictures they sent daily were a wonderful help to us as we really hated to leave him behind.

I would definitely recommend this family and will use them again!

Thank you K family!

Steve, Kristal and their boys kept our Cockapoo puppy, Rosie, for a week this summer and she had a blast! We received lots of updates and photos of Rosie cuddled up on the couch with one of the kids or playing in the backyard with Steve and Kristal's dog. We were so happy with the quality of care and affection shown to Rosie by Steve, Kristal and their family. In fact, we are going away again soon and Steven and Kristal's page was the first I checked for availability! I highly recommend this family for your furry family member!

We asked Steve and Kristal to take care of our dog for three days. Both of them are absolutely masters of taking care of dogs. My dog is shy, and they know how to help my dog be familiar with their house and other dogs they were taking care of. We received my dog's pictures and messages to tell how my dog was doing every day. We had no worries about our dog during our vacation. I feel very lucky that I found them to take care of my dog. I will ask them for my future vacation and I will also recommend them to my friends. Thank you very much Steve, Kristal, your dog, and your boys. You guys are the best!

Steve and Krystal were very accommodating and real dog people. They made Cooper feel right at home. Kristal kept us informed and sent us nightly photos - we could see that he was loved by the whole family!
Steve and Kristal were perfect hosts for my Doberman, Petey! I was a little worried about how my senior dog would do in an unfamiliar house, but they made him feel right at home with lots of attention, interaction, and affection. He got hours of playtime every day, and he was tired and happy when I picked him up.

Kristal was wonderful with her communication, and sent tons of pictures of him having fun during the week. I think we found Petey's home away from home during the times we can't be with him!

Thanks again, guys!

Tobias had an awesome time with Steve, Kristal, their kids, and Sadie. We got pics almost every day and it was much more relaxing for us to know he was having fun and being so well cared for. It was a great experience for us all and we will be calling on them again when we have to travel. Many Thanks!

We had a great experience with Steve, Kristal and their family. We know that Moe was snuggled and given attention all week and that made it easier for us to go and enjoy our vacation. Thanks!
Steve and Kristal are AMAZING!!! I was able to book a reservation on super short notice, they were very flexible and accommodating when it came to drop off and pick up time, and my pup had the best weekend ever with their dog Sadie, their four young boys, and their big fenced in yard. Kristal took my dog for nice long walks in addition to letting her run out back which was great! They also sent pictures of my dog throughout the weekend. I thought that was so nice and it also put my mind at ease that my pup was having an amazing time. I am so fortunate to have found Steve and Kristal and look forward to having a great relationship in the future. I would highly recommend Steve and Kristal!

Steve and Kristal were awesome hosts!

Sophie loved Steve and Kristal's fenced in yard to play in. She had four boys to give her all the love and attention she could handle, and a big friendly dog to pal around with.

Steve sent me an update on Sophie to let me know that she found a bed and curled up with one of the boys at bedtime.
