Susanna was wonderful with our 9 year old labradoodle. Our dog had been staying the same place when we traveled since he was a puppy so we were nervous trying something new. We needn't have worried. Susanna and her family were so accommodating, arranging a meet and greet and an overnight before our trip so we could make sure everything was a good fit and everyone was comfortable. That gave us great peace of mind that he would be in good hands when we left for a week. While we were away we got a photo of Our dog and a little update. It was clear that he was very happy and well cared for. I highly recommend Susanna based on our excellent experience.
It was our first time to use DogVacay, so we really wanted a good experience. Well, what we got was an EXCELLENT (yes, Pawsome) experience! Susanna and her sweet family were so kind and accommodating; from our Meet-N-Greet, to drop off and pick up. Communication couldn't have been better. She kept us updated with pictures and texts. Ollie seemed genuinely happy (and thinner!) after his stay. This is a safe, caring house in which to board your valued pup. I can't say enough!
Can't say enough nice things, communication was impeccable, she was super flexible about drop-off/pick-up times (which was a huge help since I had to travel last minute), plenty of updates during my dog's stay. When boarding her, my dog would be a nervous and physical wreck for a week afterward, she was as bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as ever picking her up from Susanna's. Can't recommend her enough.
Susanna was wonderful. Communication was easy and quick, she was super accommodating allowing us to come for a meet and greet early to ensure a good fit. She sent photos and updates of our pup and made us all feel at ease.
This was our first time using DogVacay and also leaving our 8-month old puppy for the weekend. I was pretty nervous since she has a lot of puppy energy, and also just being in a new home environment. Susanna was absolutely great and made us feel very at ease! We did a meet and greet before the stay and our dog and Ruger played really well together. I appreciate all the photos and updates from Susanna when I had questions. Also, she was extremely flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, since we had to catch a flight out of town. I really appreciate everything that Susanna did to make Millie’s stay wonderful and like a vacation! I definitely recommend and would also book again!
We had never boarded our 5 yr old Dane before and were a little apprehensive, especially since he has not been around other dogs overnight. But he had a wonderful time for 6 days, so much so that he was pouty having to be home with just us. We loved getting daily update and pictures texted to us and he looked so happy. We are really grateful to Susanna and co for the wonderful care and reassurances they gave all of us. We would definitely use them again when we go out of town!
Susanna and Kyle were absolutely awesome. I needed a next day reservation for 3 nights and they immediately responded and were able to accommodate my best bud Lou. They sent me daily photos and updates, and my dog really enjoyed hanging out with their beloved Bruce. And after all that wonderful service, they even refused to accept a tip. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them regularly.
Well...we found our new go-to dog sitters. Thank you!
Our older dog loved staying with Susanna. He's a little guy but had fun with Susanna's bigger dog and seems to have even more confidence at the dog park now.
Susanna and Kyle were excellent hosts for Katana. They were comfortable taking our energetic puppy for a last minute reservation. Susanna sent photos and updates daily so we knew Katana was ok. Their dog, Ruges, was a ready playmate for Katana, and the dogs kept busy playing and wrestling the whole week. Katana seemed very happy and comfortable in their home when I picked her up, and is tired from all that playing. I think she is going to miss her buddy Ruges! We will definitely use them again!
Susanna and Kyle were excellent hosts! They were flexible in their drop off/pick up times to accommodate with my flight times. I was nervous to leave my dogs over the holidays, but they sent me daily pictures and kept me updated on how they were doing. Will book again.
Susanna and Kyle were just terrific ... Warm, calm, and so wonderful with our Jack Russell who has very limited social skills!
Susanna and her husband took good care of my dog and were very responsive to my questions/notes while I was out of town. They were also flexible with watching the dog an extra day when I needed to extend my trip. Thanks for taking care of the wild child.
A very kind couple that took good care of Yogi while I was away. Would book again.
I can't say enough good things about Susanna! She took exceptional care of my pup, Bowie. Her dog, Ruger, is such a sweetheart and after an initial meeting, him and Bowie became fast doggie buddies. Susanna was also quick to notice when my dog was feeling a little bit under the weather and took extra steps to make sure he was ok and help his bellyache. That was much appreciated! Susanna was a most excellent host!
Susanna and her husband Kyle were wonderful. They were very accommodating, patient, knowledgable, and gracious. I hope to use them again. Brooklyn came home tired and happy after playing hard with their dog all weekend.
Susanna and her husband Kyle were great with my dog, who can sometimes be a handful. They got in touch with me right away when there was a question about feeding and portion size, which I appreciated. I highly recommend them and plan to use them again for my next trip. Thanks again Susanna and Kyle!
We had a great experience with Susanna and her "crew". I was expecting my dog to be all excited to see me when I picked her up but she was so tired she could hardly move. Apparently Arya and their dog played nonstop! Communication was great... our dog was a new puppy and I was worried about her not being housebroken yet. Susanna took it all in stride. It was my first experience with dogvacay and I will surely being using them again!
