About Nelson & Sandra

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a large home, with a spacious fenced in backyard, it also includes a doggy door for easy and independent access. Plenty of play room for the pups! We have two wonderful dogs ourselves, Luna and Kobe, who always enjoy having friends over.

We are fortunate to have two private dog parks in our community residance where we take the dogs to play daily!

Morning and afternoon snacks are provided (Ex: Apples, carrots, bananas, or peanut butter kongs). For the hot summers we have pool parties on the patio. Evening walks are included daily, and Thursday and Sunday are planned trips to the doggy park - Mango (unless specified otherwise).

Phenomenal vet located less than a mile from the house in case of any emergencies. We can dispense medication if needed.

This family is amazing,they took very good care of my baby
After reading many reviews on the DogVacay website we chose Nelson and Sandra. We have a rescue dog who can be skittish and not always the nicest to other dogs. We had a meet and greet with Nelson and his 2 dogs at the dog park near their home. Nelson displayed a good knowledge of dog behavior and worked well with our dog. I set up several play dates before boarding her with them to get her used to the surroundings. She has stayed overnight several times now and we will continue you to use them for all our boarding needs. They treat our dog very well and send picture updates while we are away. I would recommend them.
Nelson is so nice and good to Peanut!
Nelson & Sandra took great care of our baby. It was so nice to know he was being taken care of so well while we were away. We really appreciated all of the pictures we got and the ease of pick up/drop off. We will definitely leave Zeus with Nelson & Sandra again if the need arises.
I had a family emergency that took me out of town. Nelson and Sandra agreed to watch Tasha at the last minute. I can't say thank you enough for their flexibility. They make your dog feel like part of the family and daily visits to the dog park makes Nelson and Sandra exceptional and the best Dog Vacay experience. Again, thank you so much. By the way, I'm a repeat customer and will be back.
Mellow loved his long stay at Nelson & Sandra's! I had never been away from my dog this long but the way he was having fun I was so happy. Also, I received pics and videos regularly. They are awesome pet lovers and will be definitely using their service in the future. :)
My Labradoodle Marley stayed 4 days and 3 nights with Nelson and Sandra. He had the opportunity to go to the dog park and play, play, play. He is only used to short walks with me around the neighborhood so he came home exhausted but really happy. Sandra sent pictures the whole time so I got to see firsthand how much Marley was enjoying himself and being social as he is an "only" dog. Thank you Sandra and Nelson for taking such good care of my Marley.
Maddy appeared to have a great time and came back exhausted! We received daily photos to let us know how well she was doing which was nice since this was our first time boarding with a family instead of our vet! I would definitely recommend for families who don't want their dog in a cage for long periods of time!
Henry had such a great time here and was well taken care of! I will definitely use Nelson and Sandra again if going out of town :):
I have used Nelson and Sandra twice to take care of my dog Parker. They took great care of Parker. They sent plenty of photos of Parker so we knew that he was being well taken care of. Also it was no problem to have Parker climb on furniture or sleep with Nelson. Whenever we go away we will definately have Parker stay with Nelson and Sandra again.
For first time clients, we are really pleased on how Nelson took care of our Nymeria. She came home tired and happy. Highly recommended A+++
Sandra and Nelson were awesome, they took good care of Max and will defiantly use them again.
Blue loved his stay....loved it so much he ran opposite of me walking through the door. Nelson and Sandra are amazing and you can tell that they love dogs just as much as you do. I will definitely be using them again....and very soon. Highly recommend!!!!
Had to go out of town for 2 days. Frank had a great time with Nelson and Sandra. I don't like leaving Frank behind but feel much better about it now. We got photo updates and everything. They respond to messages in less than a minute! Very responsible pet care-givers. Will use them again.
I did not meet Sandra, last minute reservation and my son dropped Zeke off. But he said they were very nice. He stayed 2 nights and I received pictures. I will definitely use again
A very reasonable fee
Nelson and Sandra did an outstanding job and would recommend to anyone. Always very quick response time with communication and sent daily picture update shows of Mylee while we were away. Met with with Nelson for a pre-stay meeting in their neighborhoods dog park for our pup to interact with their dogs to make sure they were a fit. Very accommodating to requests about bringing our crate for the stay. We will definitely use them for doggie daycare and vacations in the future.
My dog was very calm and happy we she returned home.
Nelson was amazing with Coco and he took great care of her. She is young and very active. He ensured Coco had multiple walks a day and lots of playtime. He even helped Coco to socialize with other dogs.

Coco returned as a much better behaved dog. THANK YOU!

Sandra noted a possible concern for Coco's physical health and I was able to address it immediately. It is much
appreciated that they took such interest in her.

I most definitely will use them in the future.
Payton had a wonderful time. He was exhausted when he came home. I received photos of Payton everyday while I was out of town. He looked like he was able to make his doggie self right at home. Payton usually sleeps on the bed with me and he was able to sleep on the bed with Nelson and Sandra. All and all I would definitely bring Payton back to stay.
Roxy had a great time! Came home happy and worn out from playing all weekend. SUCCESS.
Always a great pick! Work well with our drop off and pickup needs. Also gave Ace a birthday cake treat since we couldn't be there and sent a nice video! Very awesome!
I was very pleased with Sandra and Nelson with Tasha's stay. They made her feel right at home and I love the bonus of going to the dog park. I don't think Tasha wanted to come home. They were very quick responding to text messages and I felt very comfortable leaving her with them. I will definitely use Sandra and Nelson again. I highly recommend them. Thank you for making the parents feel comfortable as well
It is great to have found these guys! Took a reservation for my dog last minute, and took great care of her. She played, played, and played some more. She came home more spoiled and tired than when she left....awesome job done!
Great job. Would recommend.
They are awesome! Nelson & Sandra were super accomdating - and really took great care of our dogs! Would use them again in a heartbeat! Thanks for doing such a wonderful job!!!!
Very easy and quick communication, they have everything my dog needs... I will highly recommend The X-ray touches like pics throughout the day was helpful and had me happy his whole stay
Great hosts! Would totally recommend!
James always loves staying with Scott & Sandra! We love using them and would recommend them to everyone!
Scott and Sandra were awesome to my pup Daisy May when she had stay a whole week. The big backyard was awesome and Daisy learned how to use a doggie door which is just hysterical to me (we are apartment folk) I would definitely recommend them! I had no worries and the sharing of photos was wonderful!
Scott and Sandra did an awesome job taking care of our Dudley. They met the needs of our senior dog and they were always able to answer our questions very quickly. We loved the pictures they sent and we would definitely use them again.
Scott and Sandra (and their dogs) are awesome! My husband and I have not had a vacation since 2011 because we were reluctant to board our dogs after having had a couple of bad experiences. We are so relieved that we now have someone we can trust to take care of them. They responded to messages quickly and sent us photos of our dogs several times during their stay. We are very pleased.
We left our dog with Scott and Sandra and they took wonderful care of him. They tried taking pictures for us but he doesn't like getting his picture taken. This is a wonderful way to take a trip and not completely worry about your dog. Thank you Scott and Sandra.
I was a little nervous at first, this was my first time using DogVacay, but Sandra and Scott were both so nice. They definitely put my mind to rest. They sent me photos throughout the day of how my Caesar was doing!! It was a great experience. I got to go to work without keeping my puppy pinned up all day and he got to socialize with their other amazing pouches and had blast running around. I'm 100% using them again!! You should too.
We did not meet Scott but Sandra was very friendly and caring. As she promised, she sent some photos of our dog while we were on our trip and that added to our reassurance. Our dog was not accustomed to being with other dogs, but he seemed to adapt well while in their home. We were totally satisfied with their care and expect to call on them again when necessary.
Scott & Sandra were amazing hosts to our boxer pup, James. James vacationed at their home with our friends pups; Bella and Moogie. They all had such a great time and came back very exhausted form all the playing and running around they did. It was nice to not have to worry about the safety and happiness of our fur baby while we were away for the weekend. Scott & Sandra sent us picture updates of James having lots of fun and we were never concerned with his well being. We would definitely use Scott & Sandra again in the future and would recommend them to anyone!
True dog lovers! I feel at ease when I leave my boys with Scott and Sandra. Very well taken care of! They get more exercise and attention with them than they do me sorry to say. I can tell the difference when they come home form Scott and Sandra's versus a Kennel. There's a drastic difference. NEVER kennel your dog(s)
Our 2 dogs had a great stay with Scott & Sandra. They loved the big, fenced yard and having access to the doggie door. They were allowed to lounge on the couches and even on their bed, just like they do at home. They went on walks, took trips to the doggie park, and had healthy snacks. Scott and Sandra sent plenty of photos and texts each day to let us know how our dogs were. We really enjoyed that!! We had never left our dogs for this long (9 days), but it was clear they had a great time!! Sandra even texted after our vacation to see how the dogs were doing. We will use Scott and Sandra again. Thanks for loving our doggies!
Benito was so happy in all the photos sent by Sandra. All the things she shared too was in his nature making me even less worried. With my permission they got him to try apples/carrots they feed their dogs as treats. He was so worn out from playing with their dogs he napped all day I picked him up. He will be going back for snuggles with them! Two paws up for Sandra, Scott, & their dogs looking after my Benny so well!
My lab/hound mix stayed with Sandra and Scott for over a week. They sent me daily pictures and kept me updated on how he was doing which I really appreciated. He spent his days playing with their other two dogs, playing fetch in the backyard, eating yummy healthy snacks, sleeping like a king on their comfy beds, trips to the dog park, and getting lots of love and affection. He looked very happy in all the pictures and was very comfortable in their home. It seems as if he was on vacation too! I will definitely use Sandra and Scott for any of my future vacations and even day care for my long work days.
Olive seemed to have a great time with her new pup friends, she came back home & slept for hours. We already have another slumber party schedule for our Olive.
Scott and Sandra took excellent care of our two corgis. They came home happy and tuckered out from playing. They sent us pictures during their visit to let us know the pups were doing well. They were extremely accomodating allowing us to drop our dogs off early in the morning so that we could make a day trip to Disney. We will definitely book with them again!
