How do I describe Liz and Steve??? Uhhh... PERFECT in EVERY way!! They are the most wonderful people and treated Barney with as much love as we would. We would continue to uses them if we hadn't moved away...Barney was right at home at their house and quite honestly, was sad when he had to leave! We miss them with all of our hearts!

An extra special day for Charley, added after the reservation was already set . . . Liz and Steve were so wonderful to add a day with little notice. They are so great about doing everything possible to help meet Charley's needs and ours as well. Thank you both so much for all you do for Charley and for us!! Deborah K.

Our Thanksgiving trip to visit family was truly a Blessing because along with us enjoying family, our Charley was enjoying his extended family with Liz and Steve, Peanut and Lucy. Thank you Liz and Steve for your devotion to our Charley and for the love and care you give him each time he is with you and your family.

Thank you again for such wonderful care for our Charley. . . . We would absolutely be lost without you. Deborah K.
Our boxer, Barney, was treated like one of the family while staying with Liz and Steve. As this was his first stay there, Liz reassured me not to worry about a thing when I dropped him off. Barney was already hard at play in the backyard with resident dogs Lucy and Peanut before I could leave. I don't think he even knew I was gone. Liz sent me adorable photos and texts all weekend to let me know what a great time Barney was having with them. I feel so lucky to have found such a great home for Barney when we have to travel. I am sure our boy will be excited the next time he goes back!

Once again The Duke had a fabulous time with Lucy, Peanut, Liz and Steve. Thanks to all of you so so much!!!!
Charley had the privilege of staying with Liz and Steve again in October and he loved every minute of it and we were able to relax and take care of family without worrying about our beloved fella. Liz and Steve always go out of their way to make sure that Charley is happy, relaxed and well cared for so that we can be all of those things too. They are also very good with his arthritis medication so he can continue to move around and play with Lucy and Peanut. Thank you so much, We would be absolutely lost without you-all!!! Deborah K.

As always, we felt Biskit received the best care ever. Thanks again for the photos and caring for our dog as if it was yours.
This was our dogs second visit with Liz and Steve. We were on vacation that week and I believe he had a better time than we did. I got pics of him chasing lizards, lounging on the first step of the pool and just living it up in general. I consider their house as my dogs home away from home. Will be back again soon.

Thanks so much for the pictures and updates you text throughout Biskit's visit. We always feel she is in the best hands.
Biskit always enjoys her stay. She does seem confused when we show up to get her. She's excited to see us, but looks like she may want to stay.
AGAIN, AMAZING! Thank you so much for everything you do for our wonderful Charley. He just loves spending time with Liz, Steve, Lucy and Peanut!
And, they take such good care of our older guy!! So far and above what anyone would expect. We would be absolutely lost without you-all! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

Liz and Steve are such wonderful people and they are so good to our boxer, Charley. Charley is an older guy and they go so far out of their way to make sure he has every need met and to be certain that he is healthy and happy. Charley has stayed with them several times now and I wouldn't want him to go anywhere else and I know Charley feels the same way. Charley loves Liz and Steve and their dogs, Lucy and Pnut! Thank you so much for taking such amazing care of Charley when we are away.

Liz and Steve have a beautiful backyard, with a high fence and separate fenced pool. My dogs had room to roam safely. They own two friendly, welcoming dogs. Our dogs were very comfortable and spoiled from the first day. Liz gave several updates and pictures throughout the week, letting us know how the dogs were doing. They gave them lots of snuggles and spoiled both my girls with affection. Liz was specific to ask questions about their schedule and any special request or needs. They made us feel welcome on arrival. Their home is very clean and inviting for the dogs. My dogs left happy to see us, of course; but I could tell they were relaxed and comfortable while mom and dad were away. I would highly recommend Liz and Steve, and absolutely use them again if any future plans took us back to Orlando.

Charley loved staying with you both again and he asked me to say Hello for him to Lucy and Peanut.
When Charley is with Liz and Steve, he is so well cared for and so happy that we don't worry about him at all. He is an older guy and they are great about making sure he gets his meds and just the right amount of exercise and rest and lots of love.

Thank you both so much for the amazing care for our beloved Charley and the peace of mind for us while we are away. Charley hopes to see you soon, so do we!

Charley enjoyed every minute with Liz, Steve, Lucy and Peanut! He has a big smile in every picture Liz sends while we're away. It's wonderful for us to know Charley is so happy. We can relax and know he is in good, caring hands. Thanks Liz and Steve for another carefree time away. Debbie K.

Thanks Liz and Steve. We are able to relax when Charley is with you. We know he is safe, loved and happy. What a blessing to have you be there for our Charley. Thanks for everything. D.Kirkwood
Charley had a wonderful time AGAIN . . . Thank you for taking such good care of our sweet older guy!! D.Kirkwood
We received great updates and pictures on our babies at least twice a day during their stay. Our two dogs were so mellow when we picked them up, we couldn't believe it! They didn't want to come home. We hope to board with Liz again.
Liz and Steve are the best! "The Duke" had a super time with Lucy and Peanut. Liz was great about sending pictures and text updates which made us feel good about leaving him with them. We will definitely be reserving time for Duke to stay with them in the future:)

Liz and Steve were awesome with my dog! Tucker is a very energetic dog and they were very welcoming and loving to him starting the day we met! I loved the daily pictures I received from them showing how much fun my dog was having. I could tell that he was relaxed there and was enjoying himself. I will take my dog back to them when I go out of town again :)

I have a 9 year old English bulldog that I am very attached to. When my wife and I decided to go to Europe for a month my only hesitation was how to make sure that Ike, my dog, would be cared for as I care for him - with the basics plus love, affection and attention.

I found Liz and Steve on Dogvacay.com and noticed that they were close by and seemed nice. Ike and I went to meet them and their two dogs and I felt immediately better about leaving Ike with them.

I dropped him off the morning before we left and he never looked back to me. The rest was history. Liz sent me many texts and emails with comments and pictures. They were great and made any doubts I ever had vanish.

When we returned late last night, I sent a text to them and asked if would be too late to come pick Ike up. They responded "no problem" so we went to get him. He was great. No trauma, healthy and happy.

I have no hesitation in recommending these folks for anyone who needs a place to board their dog. Steve and Liz will be Ike's home away from home every time I leave town for a few day or even longer.

This was Rascal's second visit with Liz and Steve. She made him feel right at home by feeding him his supper and then letting him sit on the sofa with her. She sent photos during his stay that showed him calmly enjoying himself in the back yard which is great as he is an older dog. She also sent a picture with his tail blurry from wagging as he played with her dog. I would definately book with Liz and Steve again.

Liz and Steve are such wonderful caretakers for our older Boxer that we have come to think of them as extended family and Charley, our Boxer simply thinks of them as family!

Charley recently stayed with them again and when we arrived at their home to drop him off he was so excited to see them. We received pictures and text messages about Charley while we were away and Charley loves the human connection there and the time he spends with their family dogs who are so friendly and playful.

Liz and Steve genuinely care about the dogs that they take care of while people are away. They have given us a complete feeling of confidence to travel away from Charley and know he is not only safe but also very happy while we are away.

Thanks Liz and Steve for the peace of mind for us and the joy for Charley when we travel.

Liz, Steve, Lucy, and Peanut are absolutely the best! We are very protective of our 1 1/2 year old beagle Ridley, but Liz and Steve made us feel totally comfortable leaving him with them for our trip. We received several pictures per day letting us know what Ridley was up to (he made himself at home right away), and they were very flexible with our drop off/pick up schedule as well. Their big back yard is fully fenced and 100% secure, and Lucy and Peanut have the sweetest personalities and are very friendly to visitors! Ridley was excited to see us when we picked him up, but he seemed a little sad to be leaving his new friends! We will definitely be letting him stay with them for our future trips :)

Liz and Steve were great! She shared photos of my dog with their dogs while i was on vacation in Orlando. Their home is beautiful and still very dog friendly with a beautiful fully fenced back yard. My dog is a 12 year old bassett and he fit right in with their dogs who seemed very friendly but laid back too. And they are very convenient to I-4. I would definately use them again.

Liz recently took care of my 2 year old Boxer mix for 7 days while I was away on vacation. Dexter has separation anxiety and he usually gets extremely stressed out when I leave him. I know that Liz and her husband took incredible care of him because when I arrived to pick him up at the end of the week he was more relaxed and happy than he has been any other time I've left him somewhere! The backyard was so great for the dogs to run around and play. In every picture that Liz sent while I was away it was clear that Dexter was having the time of his life. Liz is definitely my go to person for dog care from here on out!

Liz & Steve were great hosts to Christopher! They were loving and available to us when we were in a pinch. At our meet & greet, it was clear that Christopher would be spending the next couple of days in a loving environment with new friends. Thank you Liz & Steve. I hope that next time he stays with you he works up the courage to go swimming!

Liz and Steve were great caretakers of our mini-dachshund, Inga. We were in Orlando for the week and we used their service three different times. They were flexible when our schedule changed on short notice. They are conveniently located close to I-4 in Winter Park. Our Inga was in good hands with Liz and Steve. Thanks so much for giving us peace of mind while we had fun in Orlando!

We feel blessed to have had Liz, and Steve watch our Puppy while on vacation. Their dedication, and overwhelming show of affection towards our puppy was amazing. We wouldn't think of leaving him with anyone else. They are worth their weight in GOLD doggy biscuits. Great Job. We HIGHLY recommend them!!!!!

Liz and Steve were very professional friendly and so easy going. Honestly after meeting with them we knew we could leave sky and not have to worry about anything. The big back yard and pool was great for sky to play in and the dog friendly environment felt spa like. We're definitely taking sky back to stay!

Charley had a wonderful time! Play Time was great and taking a nap in the sun has always been one of his favorite things to do but best of all was the affection he received while he was with Liz and her family!! He quickly became part of their family and felt right at home which guaranteed us a wonderful time on our time away. Thanks so much Liz!! Deb K.

Steve and Liz were fantastic hosts from the very moment we met. My pup Tip was welcomed into their home as if he was one of their own. Their pups Peanut and Lucy were so friendly and seemed happy to have a playmate for the week. Steve and Liz were both very attentive to the things that I felt were important for Tip's care and kept me updated throughout his entire stay. They were extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times which were paramount in my situation. Tip seemed to have a blast and I know he would love to visit again. I felt thoroughly comfortable leaving my boy under their supervision and would be blessed to have him stay with them again in the future. .

Liz and Steve took very good care of our baby, Bella. I enjoyed the messages and pictures that were sent. We will definitely use them again when we go out of town. :)
What a great relief to be able to leave my doggie Spike with such great hosts like Liz & Steve. At our meet and greet, I immediately felt at ease with their assurance that Spike would be well taken care of. Their home is very dog friendly - I even received pictures of Spike having a ball with their dog Lucy. I have found my go to place for my future dog boarding needs!

I'm very particular about my Cato's wellbeing especially when I have to leave him overnight, but upon our first meet and greet I immediately felt comfortable leaving him in Liz and Steve's care. The most friendly and compassionate people you will meet. They are extremely flexible with time schedules and getting back to me right away with any questions I might have. Their place is well suited for all your dogs needs, big yard and a pool! I wish I could stay :) Plus great friends to play with. Lucy and Peanut are wonderful companions for any dog. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a secure and loving place to leave their pet!

Reservation was an easy and smooth transaction. Liz was very accommodating.
Bingo had such a great time with Lucy and Peanut and "Auntie Liz and Uncle Steve". He just loves his time with them! Thank you for taking such great care of my sweet boy. Rose
We are so happy Kia could stay at Liz' place for two days. Huge garden, pool and awesome playing buddies. Liz and Steve were very friendly and you could tell they are great dog lovers. We did a rather last minute like booking around Thanksgiving and this was absolutly no problem. The place is easy to reach and the neighborhood is perfect for walks.

It was great. Just like last time.
We were so thankful to find a "home" away from home for Biskit. It was so thoughtful of them to keep in touch with a us and even texted us a picture of Biskit. We did a meet and greet first, so felt good about it already, but was nice to see we were right since this was the first visit.
When we went to pick her up, I could tell she had a great time and will miss leaving such a fun place. The good news is she will be back for Thanksgiving.

Liz was amazing! I had forgotten Bingo's food in my rush to get out the door and she just went above and beyond in taking care of him for me anyway! Thank you SOOOOOOO much!!! Rose & Bingo
Bingo said he had a fabulous time!
Bingo had a fabulous time! Soooo happy to have found them for Bingo's time away from home. Simply a great experience for us both!
Liz and Steve were fantastic! Their yard is doggy heaven with plenty of room to run and play. Our two dogs loved having new playmates. We felt very comfortable leaving our pups with them, which gave us peace of mind on our trip out of town. I would definately reccommend using them and will do so ourselves again on any future needs.

Thanks Liz and Steve!!!
