My dog Gunnar had so much with her other dogs. She wears polite and when I told her he had to be dropped off at 5 am she was perfectly okay with it. She sent me pictures and videos throughout the day too! I will most definitely be using her again.
This was the first time I've ever had to use a doggy vacation/sitter so I was very apprehensive, scared. My "little" girl is my baby so I don't trust her with anyone. Plus most people are not comfortable having to babysit an 8 month old, 110 lb Great Dane! Emily knocked it out of the park!!! From the second we walked in, she just took Remmy's leash and helped get her used to her surroundings. After we left, she slowly introduced her to the other resident pups and soon, they were all running and playing together!!! She was fantastic about sending me updates, pictures, videos, text messages! She knew I was worried and I didn't want to bother her 24/7 but she in turn kept me up to date without me having to feel guilty. I will use Emily for our next Dogvacay this month and from here on out! They had tons of room to run, play and interaction, lots of attention, free run of the house and she's on a completely NOT busy road what so ever!!! Thank you Emily for taking such wonderful care of my little girl! Your dedication to these dogs show in the happiness of our babies!

I've been taking Sofie to Emily's house, once a week for the last few months, to get her used to being somewhere else besides her own house. My wife and I finally went on a trip and boarded Sofie for four nights. Quite frankly, we were nervous because Sofie has never done well outside the house. The day after picking up Sofie, she was acting like a happy puppy. She was playing, growling, and having fun. I won't ever hesitate leaving Sofie at Emily's house when we need to go out of town. I highly recommend her for a day or a week. Doesn't matter. My dog really likes being there and I like them.

As usual, Bo came back happy and tired. Emily does a great job and Bo looks forward to going to visit.
Emily answered all of our questions before booking and reassured us that our pet would be safe. Willing to accept a last minute booking and sent us photo updates to ease our minds.
Awesome last minute host. Mickey had a blast and came home exhausted :) I could tell he played the whole time! Thanks so much
Emily was terrific with Rocky and quickly helped us understand the DogVacay process before booking. Thanks again!
Emily and her husband greeted me at 0630. I'm sure I'm killing their sleep routine. My dog Sofie stresses over change, and therefore, I stressed too. Emily kept me posted during the day on Sofie's status and sent pictures. I'm taking Sofie back again this week! Thanks.

I had to cancel my reservation last minute due to logistics on my end. However, Emily was a great communicator, was prompt in responding to any inquiries I had and well as being super helpful in suggesting area accommodations for me while I was in town.Thanks!

Great as usual. Bo came back tired and happy and we really appreciate the photos. Even though we have moved to another state, we still try to book with Emily whenever possible. Great boarding place for your pet.
Emily was fabulous. She added pictures and was very accommodating with our schedule. We had a very unpredictable schedule. She had a lot of area for my baby to run and play. Saw my baby feel just like home. Thank you Emily very much!!!!
Emily is great! I never worry about my two pups, even though one is a senior and requires special care. She always sends me photos so I can see how their doing. And she's great about last minute reservations and cancelations.
Little Molly was taken care of so well that she wanted to stay. I cannot say enough good things about Emily. I especially like the emailed photos showing Molly playing with other fur persons. On my next business trip out of town, I will definately drop my baby girl and not worry a bit. Thank you Emily very much.

Emily is a wonderful care giver to my Bandito. She is responsible and quick to get back to me on short notice. thank goodness!
I was very pleased with Emily. She provided pictures of Bugsy while we were away and I could see Bugsy was totally at home with her. Thank You!
I am very pleased all around. Emily was very accommodating; especially with it being the holidays and short term notice. I was not worried about Hank for the duration of his stay thanks to the picture updates everyday. I am grateful that he was able to interact with other dogs and comforted by their accommodations. I think this is a great value for the money, and much much better than any kennel. We will definitely take advantage of her services in the future!

Emily was great and very accommodating to my delayed flight and late pickup. My dog seemed to be quite content and the daily photos were reassuring! I'd definitely recommend.
Thanks for grooming Molly - she's an awful hairy beast. She looked nice when we picked her up. Again I apologize for being late picking them up and not calling. I'm terrible with technology. They will be there again to visit again! Thanks!
This is the second time Hashi has stayed with Emily and he is thoroughly happy to stay at this home away from home. Emily sent so many photos to us throughout the days and we were completely assured that Hashi was in safe hands. Being Dogvacay hosts ourselves, we absolutely recommend Emily and her family to care for a fur child.

As usual, Bo loves going to see Emily and the other dogs at Pointer Palance. Emily is always very prompt about responding to any inquiries and is very flexible - even with short notice. I trust her completely with our German Shorthair and knows he will always have a great time and come happy and tired. It's definetly worth the drive!!

I have left my review several times before but I cant stress enough how fortunate I feel to have found someone like Emily. Bella Lu knows when I start getting her stuff together that she is going to Emilys and gets so excited. To all who love their pets you know how important it is to not worry about them when you are away.

Bandito practically pulls Emily's husband in the house by his leash he gets SO excited tto be there. Emily takes great care &; gives much lI've to my pup. I highly recommend her.
Pictures of Twiggy playing with and cuddling her new doggy friends greeted us every day during our long vacation. I have no doubt that she was having as much fun as we did. Very thankful to have found this site and connect with Emily.
I just saw the pictures you posted. It looks like they did really well. Duke and your shorthair make quite a handsome pair and it was good that Molly got a little bed time. Thank you so much. It was 300% better than leaving them at a kennel. We definitely would recommend you !

I feel very fortunate to have found Emily. I was very hesitant on getting another dog since our passion of riding motorcycles would take us away on road trips. Upon deciding to adopt a dog I tried several different boarding places but was not happy with the service. I know that sometimes there is no other option but once I found Emily I have been very pleased. I am able to go away and know Bella is taken care of and has fun at the same time. Of course I think of Bella often when we are gone but the daily pictures we receive put a smile on my face and I don’t worry about things.

I am super impressed with how Emily handled our pup while we were out of town. Audi is a border collie and not usually comfortable with other dogs, and has separation anxiety.

Emily sent us pictures and updates daily, and I could tell right away that he was doing great with her. She handled his anxiety issues and he got along fine with the other borders.

I want to thank her for being such a wonderful dog sitter, who obviously cares very much for her clients and their babies. I would definitely use her again, and highly recommend her.

Thanks for making our trip so much easier!

Bo always has a great time at Emily's. Pictures of him show him lounging around, playing, and just having a good time. We will continue taking Bo to Emily's Pointer Palace for as long as we can.
We boarded Bo over the 4th of July with Emily and he seems to have a great time! Emily sent us pictures showing what a good time Bo was having, and she was very good with him and his fear of fireworks. Bo loves going to her house and playing with the other dogs. I would recommend Emily to anyone. We can now travel and leave Bo for a few days without having to worry about how stressed he will be when we pick him up. We will continue leaving Bo for both daycare and boarding with Emily. We can't say enough what a great place it is to leave your dog.

Thanks for everything you do for Bo, Emily.
We are so happy we found Emily. She's been very helpful with Bo and from the pictures she's sent us we can see what a good time Bo has at her house. Bo has a lot of separation anxiety issues as he'd been ignored and neglected the first two years of his life. Emily is willing to work with us on helping Bo feel safe and relaxed when away from home. I highly recommend Emily and Dog Vacay.

Emily is great. She loves dogs and takes great care of Bo. Her house is extremely dog friendly and we enjoy getting pictures of Bo throughout the day doing fun things. In some of the pictures we've noticed he's doing just what he does at home - lying on the couch, looking outside, going in the doggie pool. Emily's dogs are very friendly and well mannered and Bo gets along well with them. Emily is also very flexible about pick-up and drop off times, which is much appreciated. We will continue to take Bo for daycare and boarding to Emily, knowing he'll be well taken care of, safe, and come back home exhausted from playing all day. We recommend Emily to everyone!

We are now repeat customers of Emily's. We were in need of short notice, short term stay and Emily was very accommodating. From her response time, availability and care of Rascal we have been very satisfied.
After I had a meet and greet with Emily at the Pueblo West Dog Park, I knew she would be great with my Maggie Mae! Our first day care day went great. The house and location are optimal. First, the house is a true house for dogs, they are allowed on the couches and it is so welcoming. I love the dog nose prints on the windows! My Maggie Mae loves to look out! The location of the home is wonderful because there is very low traffic and a lot of open space. The back yard is well fenced and it has a pool where Maggie Mae had a great splash session. But none of this would matter if the hosts (human and doggies) were not so nice and caring. The second time we took Maggie Mae for daycare she ran up to them and could not wait to go in and play. This made me so happy! We are now planning two longer vacations and Maggie Mae will be staying overnight. I know she will be well taken care of. I very much appreciate all the pictures Emily sends. Seeing Maggie Mae playing, watching TV, splashing in the pool, looking out the window and laying around lets me know she is a happy puppy! I also appreciate Emily's great response time in all our communications. I feel so lucky we have found Emily and her pack!

Have been using Emily for several weeks now. I appreciate the opportunity to have other pets introduced to Bella in a home setting. Bella goes crazy on me when she knows she is going to visit. This will certainly make vacation times and motorcycle weekends much more enjoyable. Oh and the pictures during the day always make me smile. Thank you Emily and DogVacay.

Left Bella Lu for the first time overnight since we rescued her. No problems. I saw her playing with one of the other dogs when we arrived to pick her up. Three months ago after we adopted her, she would not have been trusting enough to play with another dog. Emilys Pointer Palace has been very good for her.

Our second visit and I have more reservations in place. Things are going great.
I have left Bella Lu at a boarding facility before and was not impressed with the attention or lack of attention. We adopted Bella at the end of the year and she was very scared and did not trust people or other animals. We have been working with her and she has come so far that I didnt want to leave her where she might revert back to some of her fears. When I picked her up she was so excited and I could tell she had a good time. Of course all the picture sent during the day made my day a lot better too. It was good to see her having fun.

Rascal seemed to have a wonderful time with his new pack family. We had easy access to correspond with Emily and received many photos of him doing all the things that he would not get to do if he were staying in the standard boarding facility. He had furry friends to play with, human friends who played with him, a yard to run in. He was made to feel like one of their family.
This was the first time I tried this program and I would not hesitate to have Rascal stay with Emily again. He stayed with her for 21 days. This program allows pet owners to enjoy their time away and not worry about whether their pet is okay. Thank you for everything.

Everything went great!
Excellent Hosts! I received pictures with Benny in it to show me how well he was doing. Emily was extremely friendly and I felt great leaving my pet with them. I would recommend them and will be using them again!
