About Melissa and Taylor

**We will be taking a brief break from hosting dogs in our home as we welcome our first (two-legged!) family member in mid-September. We look forward to starting up again soon!**

We live in a single-family home in a neighborhood near East Falls Church, with plenty of dog parks and walking/running trails nearby. We have a fully-fenced yard for playtime, and will make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise and attention. My husband and I understand the deep bond between man and his best friend, and will strive to fulfill that void for your dog while you are away. We are happy to e-mail photos/videos of your dog at play so you can check in while you are busy.

Melissa and Taylor took great care of our lab, Jake. They took him for a run, and sent a photo of him worn out! He loved the exercise and the attention they paid to him. Thank you for taking such good care of our boy!
Melissa and Taylor were great! This was my first time boarding with DogVacay and I was a little bit hesitant, but after a meet and greet with Melissa and Taylor, I knew my dogs would be in good hands. They didn't take any other dogs while they cared for mine, so that the dogs would have their full attention. That was nice! And plus they had a huge backyard for the dogs to run around in! I'd recommend this couple to anyone!
As always, Melissa and Taylor provide excellent dog-sitting to our Bernie! Looking forward to working with them again in the future :)
Melissa and Taylor were great and worked with us to make Jacob's stay easy and stress free. We were scheduled to drop him off on inclement weather day and they were very flexible in his arrival time so we could avoid the bad weather. They sent us pics of him while we were gone and were very patient with this pet parent.
Jacob was so happy while he was there that we are planning on using Melissa and Taylor for future dog vacays.
Melissa and Taylor were so friendly and easy to work with. They went above and beyond by sending us pictures of our dog while we were out of town. Thank you guys for giving me invaluable peace of mind!
Melissa and Taylor were exceedingly gracious and accommodating. They took care of our dog as if she were a part of their family. They even gave her a bath! I think she is hoping we'll take another trip soon so she can go back again.
We can't say enough about Melissa and Taylor and the care they provided to our dogs. Great communication with us before, during and after the stay - especially the pictures with accompanying doggie thoughts! Had us LOL. They have a terrific home with lots of space, and a great fenced yard. They treated our finicky eater with extra special love. Our dogs came home calm and happy! Looking forward to the next visit.
Cupcake had a great stay with Melissa and Taylor. They were very relaxed and accommodating and gave Cupcake a lot of playtime and affection. I would definitely use them again.
They were great with my pup. Sorry I forgot to review them!
We needed an additional day of hosting...and Melissa and Taylor graciously accommodated us. Phillip & Jane
Let's just say I was worried that Gucci wouldn't want to come home after the daily walks and fun she had with Melissa and Taylor.

It was easy for us to tell that she was treated great and even got a bath.

Thanks guys for treating Gucci like your own doggie.

Melissa and Taylor were wonderful. They took great care of our little dog, took her for many walks and outings to the dog park, and they sent us updates with photos to see how happy she was. They are super-nice, very easygoing. Would absolutely recommend them and have them care for our dog again. Great experience!
Melissa and Taylor were amazing hosts for Gunnar while I was out of town for the weekend. They were very flexible with the drop-off time and my trip actually ended a day earlier than anticipated and they allowed me to pick up Gunnar at 10:30 PM the night I got home because they knew how excited I was to get him back home after being away for a few days. Gunnar looked very happy when I picked him up and he was certainly a tired guy when I got him home which tells me that he really enjoyed running around in their big fenced in backyard. I certainly would recommend Melissa and Taylor and I am already checking my work travel schedule and trying to book them as early as possible for my future trips.
Melissa and Taylor were great dog sitters. They have a great backyard for our (city) dog to enjoy while we are away.
Melissa and Taylor took great care of Hudson during our long weekend away.
I would consider myself more than compulsive when it comes to my dogs. They are energetic with very particular diets. Melissa & Taylor are so accommodating to any of my requests and love my pups as if they were their own. As long as I'm in the area, they are my go to dog sitters. I never worry about their safety while I'm away.
AO had a great visit with Melissa and Taylor. They have a great home with a fenced in yard for him to sniff around at his leisure. AO also is on meds that he takes 3 times a day, and they kept up with all of them very well. She even sent me a few pictures of his visit. Thanks so much!
Melissa and Taylor did a great job with Louie! I will use them again!
Melissa and Taylor are fantastic dog sitters! They sent us messages and pictures of London every day while we were gone. They have a great fenced-in backyard for your pup to run around in. They also took him to the local dog park and long walks so he came back exhausted and happy!
I just picked up my Baylee after spending 4 nights with Melissa and Taylor, and they took awesome care of him! Baylee is almost 11 and a dachshund so he's prone to back problems, and I can tell they 'babied' him, which he loves. He looks healthy and not stressed out, which he's the total opposite if he ever has to stay in a kennel. I will definitely let Baylee stay with Melissa and Taylor in the future!
Rolfie was very happy at staying with Melissa and Taylor. They brought him to the park and cleaned him real good after he got himself all muddied up. They were a good match for each other. Thanks again!
Melissa and Taylor were flexible, loving, and attentive to our pup, Morty. We were so lucky that they were available for a meet-and-greet and watch him for five days with such short notice, and could not be happier that Morty was with such kind people. Highly recommend!
Melissa and Taylor were great caretakers for our dog, Jake, who seemed quite happy to stay with them for two weeks. I really appreciated the emailed photos of Jake playing with his toys, romping in the yard, and visiting a pumpkin patch. When we picked him up, it was clear that he had been well-tended to. He showed none of the "stressed-out" signs (e.g, fatigue, hoarse bark, etc.) that I've observed after open kennel boarding. I'm grateful to have had a guilt-free vacation, thanks to Melissa and Taylor.
Melissa and Taylor did a wonderful job looking after our Marty. The picture they sent us while we were away was soooo him - in a sunny spot sprawled out in the grass looking very pleased with himself. He is an exuberant boy who loves to chase the tennis ball, and both of them were happy to oblige, all the way up until it was time to pick him up. After the initial excitement of seeing us again, he conked out in the car and again when we got home. A tired dog is definitely a happy dog. Thank you!
Melissa and Taylor took excellent care of our dog. They sent updates and pictures, making us feel very comfortable while we were away. Our dog was so happy & well exercised. I'm sure she can't wait to see them again!
Melissa and Taylor did a great job taking care of our dog. They even were willing to go the extra mile to keep his allergies under control with medicine and supervision. I would definitely recommend them!
Melissa and Taylor were great. We had an unwelcome "airline experience" trying to get home, and they were both quick to respond to my chaotic emails reporting on flight delays, and very accommodating of the changing schedule. Stormy barked at us when we went to pick her up as if she were at home -- I think she would just as happily have stayed there! And the pictures they sent while we were gone were greatly appreciated. Highly recommend them.
Melissa and Taylor exceeded my expectations! I received text and picture
updates almost everyday I was away. They included her in a variety of
activities, including a mini-expedition to a local dog friendly winery! I
really couldn't be happier because my girl came home exhausted from her own
dog vacay! I have already booked them for my next trip out of town...
