Our puppy Echo had a really fun time spending a week here. I could tell. He was very excited to see us when we picked him up but he still wanted hugs and cuddles from Mackenzie and her family before we left. We will definitely have Echo stay there again when we have to take a long trip!

My dog had a great time and was well taken care of.
Lola loved her time with Mackenzie and all her new dog friends. She passed out shortly after getting home and we had to drag her out of bed to go to the bathroom before we went to bed. She slept past 7AM which is unheard of and I think she is now has a puppy hangover from all the playing! Thank you so much for taking such good care of her. We will definitely be back!

Mackenzie was a great host. This was my 7 month old puppies first stay away from home. She did great. She made friends with all the other dogs . Mackenzie sent me texts on her progress ane even pictures of Hannahs first time in the snow! I would highly recommend her.

Thank you Mackenzie for a wonderful experience with our 14 week old GSD Trinity!!! As you could tell, we were not looking forward to leaving her. You put us at ease and gave us thoughtful updates complete with pictures. My wife was so happy, she even hugged you when we arrived to pick her up. Thanks again and we will definitely call you again the next time we are in the area!!!!

Mackenzie was awesome. This is the first time we left our boys in 11 years. She responded back with texts about the boys along with pics during our absence. Gave medications and shots to our one dog with medical issues. We will definitely be using her again! The pups had a great vacation and so did we. Thanks again Mackenzie!

Left my dog Bell with MacKenzie for 2 nights. First time leaving her with someone other than my mother so I was a little worried.
When I picked her up she seemed to have a great time...apparently she made friends with a German Shepard that was there. She slept the whole day pretty much, so thinking she had plenty of play time.
Highly recommend MacKenzie, her and Ruben were great...definitely will use her again when needed.

Mackenzie treats our boys like they are her own. They have a great time when they stay with her. They come home rested and happy. We receive updates on how they are doing and can tell they are getting lots of love while we are away.
Mackenzie was a kind and caring person. My dog wasn't used to being around other dogs and she sat by him and kept him company. He seemed happy when I picked him up. I will use her again when the need arises
Our dog's overnight stay at Mackenzie's house was wonderful. Even on a busy Labor Day weekend the atmosphere was so pleasant and friendly. Willow is sometimes shy and intimidated by other dogs, but here she was obviously relaxed and comfortable. Mackenzie's care made all the difference. I could see that she relates to each dog on a personal level which makes them feel at home.

Montana and Abby stayed for about a week and had no issue there. It was like a doggy vacation for them! Best part was they didn't need to be kenneled. They were happy healthy pups when we picked them up. The facility with all the dogs rekind me of Cesar Millan. Will bring them again!!!!

Mackenzie is not only accommodating to our pick up/drop off times, but she cares for our boys and always sends messages to let us know things are well. The communication is unsolicited but so appreciated. She is our dedicated contact when it comes to our boys. My husband says her new place is amazing and perfect for running/playing in a safe space. Thank you for everything!

Mackenzie was a great host - she seems very experienced with a wide array of dog personalities and sizes, etc, and our pup came home happy and tired. She also didn't hesitate to keep our husky for an extra night when we had air travel delays. Thanks, Mackenzie! We'll be sure to book another dogvacay with you again!

This was the first time I've had to leave my dogs with a sitter. MacKenzie was so wonderful, and my dogs were spoiled by her. She even sent me pictures and she kept me posted on how my dogs were doing.The place was neat and clean and I loved how she had made little bins for my dogs belongings to go in. Definitely will use her again!!

I could tell right when I pulled up to drop Akimbo off with Mackenzie that he was going to have a lot of fun during his stay. He loves being outside and Mackenzie has a very big fenced in area for the dogs to run. It was great that Akimbo was able to play with other dogs during his time as well, he loves other dogs. Would highly recommend Mackenzie and would use her again.

Kept in touch with me the whole time I was away and sent me pictures of my dogs while they were there.
Mackenzie has a wonderful facility! There is a very large fenced in area with a lot of fun things for the dogs to do. Mackenzie responded quickly to my texts and even sent me a pic of Cooper in the kiddie (doggie) pool. I will definitely take Cooper again!

Labatt loved her stay and we felt good leaving her with Mackenzie! If we are ever in the area again and need a sitter, we absolutely would leave her with Mackenzie again.
We have been bringing our dog Cooper to Mackenzie for almost 3 years now. He always loves being dropped off and never wants to leave! We love her new location; there is room for Cooper to run around and always other dogs to play with. We would recommend Mackenzie to anyone!

This was our best "kennel" experience ever. Mackenzie's place is cage free, so it's not your traditional kennel. Snoopy's experience was great. Mackenzie sent us a few photos while we were away, so we could see that he was loving his visit there. Treated like a king, I don't think he minded being away from his family! Another benefit was that he could run as often as he wanted, we did not have to pay extra for additional play time. Lastly, he didn't come home smelling like a kennel after spending almost a week there. I would highly recommend her and will not hesitate to use her in the future. Booking online was simple.

Very friendly. I actually had to come and pick my dog up the same night, I was sick and was leaving the area early. Mackenzie stayed up until I was about to get there to get my dog. I was very happy that she was willing to do that for me. If I'm ever in the area again and need a sitter my dog will be going there.

It's a funny things these reviews...they really do make a decision easier to make when they're good ones. Mackenzie's reviews were good and great ones and here's another one to add to the barrel.

I had never had a "sitter" watch our dog that I didn't know. But, we were spending a week in Sylvan Beach and our normal sitter (our relatives) were out of town, as well. So, we wanted our dog close enough to where we were so in case anything happened, we would be there in an instant. Fortunately, I found Mackenzie who was just 5 minutes up the road which was terrific.

Our youngest, who is 19, is really the dog's owner. The dog lives and breaths for those moments with him. So, we were nervous that he wouldn't adapt. But, he did and Mackenzie sent us pictures showing how much fun he was having. She even reached out to us to give us updates. She put our minds at ease and we were able to enjoy our vacation knowing he was being cared for like he was.

Yes, I would highly recommend Mackenzie as a "dog sitter". I couldn't do what she does-juggling different dogs but we were there and saw that she was able to handle them and bring a new one into the fold effortlessly.

Thank you, Mackenzie. We all appreciated it and Trevor, especially did.

I had an emergency situation that required me to leave the same day the reservation was made.

Mackenzie was quick to get back to me and very understanding. She makes sure to keep my wife and I up to date on the status of our dog during regular intervals.

I love her new facility too! Don't take your dog anywhere else.

Great our go to sitter.
Mackinze always does a great job with my dog! She has the perfect facility for watching dogs, Raylan always comes home happy, and tired from playing!
I have no qualms about dropping Leopold off at Mackenzie's when he can't go along with us! She is very accommodating and Leo seems to enjoy his stay there.
Ben's stay at Mackenzie's place was great for both him and us. We don't love the idea of having to leave him, but with Mackenzie, it's more like he's going on a sleep-over at a friend's house.

Regular text messages with photos showed him having a great time with the other dogs in a safe but roomy and free location.

100% recommend Mackenzie and will be going back for sure.

Dixie had a good time with Mackenzie and her doggie wards for 10 days. I was concerned since I just rescued Dixie the month before. No need to worry. Dixie was happy when I picked her up and she will be staying with Mackenzie again. Wonderful service!!!

Excellent communication and took great care of the dogs! Highly recommended!
Our dog, Jetta was very well taken care of by Mackenzie. She knew that we were a little worried, it was the first time leaving Jetta any where and Mackenzie made us feel at ease. She even sent me a picture the first morning and we could see that Jetta was very happy there. I will definitely ask Mackenzie to dog sit again. Thank You so much for taking such good care of our dog.

Mackenzie has done a great job with Penny every time she's had her. Penny always gets very excited as soon as I pull up to the driveway (she knows she's in for a fun time!). She's always got plenty of other pups to play with and I get regular updates and pictures. Highly recommended!

Scout just got back from his 3rd time visiting w/ Mackenzie and I think he had a great time. I loved having the opportunity to watch him interact with and socialize with other dogs. I know that Scout loves having the ability to run freely in the extremely large fenced in yard and I'm relieved knowing that he isn't locked in a small kennel by himself. I enjoy hearing about who he chose to buddy up with for his visit too. Last visit it was a beagle and this time it was a pug. I find it amusing that he chooses to pal around with dogs that are a third his size but he lives w/ two cats so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Mackenzie was totally awesome. More importantly, Blazer came home completely stress FREE. Typically when we board him he comes home wired and stressed to the max, but not with Mackenzie. Blazer got lots of exercise, socialization, and to be frank - spoiled, just like we do.

We will use Mackenzie as long as she will have us!!

Mackenzie was awesome. She sent pictures and updates. I will definitely be using her the next time I go away.
Packer always has the best time at Mackenzie's. He can't wait to get out of the car and go play with his friends when we pull in the parking lot. He was so exhausted from playing this weekend that he went right up to bed today when we got home. Out like a light.

This review is really for three "vacations" my beagle George has had with Mackenzie the last two months - a couple of weekends and one 5-day stretch. Both George and I have been very happy and, I have been so relieved about traveling and not having to worry about him. It has been wonderful to know that he hasn't been cooped up in a kennel all day and night. He's come home each time so much more relaxed than when he was at the kennels -- slept some extra after all that "socializing" with the other dogs at Mackenzie's but did not practically pass out for a several days like he would after the kennels. I'm so happy to have found Mackenzie. I'd recommend her highly.

This was the first time we were apart from our dog for so long (over a month) and I am not sure if I can adequately express in words how thankful and happy we are that we left him with Mackenzie! She is such a kind and warm person who genuinely cared for our Santino as if he were her own dog.

At Mackenzie's Santino was enjoying a sunny, spacious and safely fenced-in yard to run around, and lots of good company (both Mackenzie is home most of the time, and there were other friendly dogs there to play with). It was like sending him to an awesome dog camp, but with lots of individual attention and care. Throughout our trip Mackenzie sent us thoughtful updates and lovely photos. These allowed us to truly enjoy our vacation, as we could rest assured that our little man was happy and so well taken care of! We saw in the pictures he was so content and happy - it was clear that he is having the best time! So much so that after we picked him up, I wondered if he would want to come back with us :)

Talking to Mackenzie felt like talking to a friend who is truly concerned for the well being of our dog, just like she would be for her own. I knew without a doubt that Santino is not only safe and happy, but that he was even pampered and getting all the personal attention and human bonding he needs. Your dog will love Mackenzie, I have no doubt and you will have all the peace of mind you need knowing he/she is in the best possible place while you are away!

MacKenzie was great! Sent us a pick of our pup Nash to let us know he was having a good time. And boy did he have fun. He's ben sleeping since we picked him up :)
Mackenzie kept in touch the 2 weeks that she had Molly. She sent photos every time I got dogsick. She was efficient, happy, and Molly absolutely loved her. My dog ran to me clean and happy...but turned around and wanted to say goodbye. That about says it all. Will absolutely use her again. This was my best dog care experience ever.
Read More...
The dogs had a blast.
I was very happy with Mackenzie. I could tell that she loves animals and took very good care of Molly. If I am in that area again and in need of a place for Molly to stay I will definitely leave her with Mackenzie.
I am a repeat customer with Mackenzie's and will be for as long as I have a dog. We can no longer say her name in front Shelby because he goes crazy wanting to get to the car and then whines and sings all the way there. Shelby never exits the car until I'm out of the front seat and open the back door for him. When we get to Mackenzie's however, his training goes out the window! He climbs over the back seat, over me, out the door and runs to the gate and waits for Mackenzie. If he's that happy to be there, obviously this is the place I want to take him.

Mackenzie was awesome for our dog while we were away for our wedding weekend! We picked up a tired and happy pup after her 3 day stay. There was a great fenced in area for the dogs to run around and play and there were always multiple dogs under her care every time we were there- all having a great time! I even got a picture sent to my phone on our wedding day so my doggy was one less thing to stress about!

Zimmer loves to visit Mackenzie! It's almost like he didn't even miss me. The peace of mind knowing your pet is safe and happy is priceless.
Mackenzie is a wonderful person and clearly an animal lover. This was hands down the best dog sitter experience for us to-date. We could tell our 2 yorkies had an absolute blast on her farm. They were happy and exhausted when we brought them home!
Our experience was awesome! We were happy that our dog had a fenced yard to run in and was able to have the opportunity to play with other dogs his size. We will definitely use Mackenzie again when the need arises.
Mackenzie is the best ! Packer loves loves loves going to spend his vacations with her and her pack. We were gone for two full weeks, and she sent me pictures of him relaxing and playing and feeling right at home. when we picked him up he was having a great time playing with the other dogs and was completely exhausted when we got him home. He was so happy and it is comforting to know he's in such good caring hands.

My two goldendoodles get very excited when they see Mackenzie. I take that as a strong sign try enjoy their time there.
Zimmer loves his stay with Mackenzie!
McKenzie continues to provide our dogs with the utmost professional care. They love being there and that gives us a great sense of security. Plan to continue to use McKenzie as long as she'll have us.
Mackenzie was great, and the dogs came back happy and tired.
Simply the best! Great facility out in the country. If's almost like "pet heaven". I truly felt how much Mackenzie cared about my dog, in addition to her own dogs and horses. I don't think one could find a better place (and person) to watch over their beloved pets. Would definitely use Mackenzie again. Thanks again Mackenzie.

Mackenzie was ridiculously awesome! We and our pups loved their stay. And she was able to take us with very short notice. Highly recommended.
Awesome!!
Mackenzie was really wonderful and reassuring. We got to introduce our dogs to her's at the meet and greet, and then once we booked, she was really flexible on drop-off and pick-up times. Our dog came home totally exhausted which was awesome!
Mackenzie is the best ! Packer always loves going to have a fun weekend with his buddies. When we get there he runs right in, anxious to play with his friends. And when we pick him up he's so tired from his fun filled visit. Thank you Mackenzie !
Once again Nala had a really good time with Mackenzie....and the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and make new friends....
Once again, my crazy little guy had a blast!! Loves going to mackenzies, he plays sleeps and eats with the big boys!! I know he is in good hands when going here. :)
She loves dogs. My dog had a great experience stay with her.
Mackenzie is great! The place is great! My Tod likes there ! That says it all ! Thanks Adam
Mackenzie is fantastic ! I feel so comfortable leaving my 4 legged little man with her. He is always happy to go there and runs right up to the house when we bring him and can't wait to get in to play with everyone. It's a comforting feeling!
This was not our first trip to MacKenzie's, and it won't be our last. She is so good with the animals. I can't imagine taking him anywhere else. Shelby actually starts singing/talking as soon as we turn down her street. And then he races from the car without looking back:( Heartbreaking as it may be, it's very reassuring that he wants to be there!
Thank you so much!

Mackenzie took excellent care of our 3 boys! They were spoiled as if they were her own. We received updates and photos of the boys while traveling. It was so good to know they were happy and well cared for. I am already looking to schedule our next trip!

Mackenzie is a great doggie sitter and I feel totally at ease leaving my senior dog with her.
Packer's vacation at Mackenzie's was wonderful. This was his first week long stay and he made a great new friend with a baby goat. He was happy when I went to pick him up and seemed to really be enjoying his time there. Mackenzie is great and I feel very comfortable leaving my little furbaby with her.

Thanks MacKenzie. Nala had a blast. She was happy when I picked her up and looked like she enjoyed her stay with you and your wonderful dogs. Hope to do this again...
Amazing as always. Mackinzie is the best!
I will be picking up my guy Tod a couple of days late and Mackkenzie was very accommodating.
Mackenzie also called me a after a few days to give me an update . She said that Tod was getting along very well and having a great time.
So far so good I will be picking up Tod on Monday afternoon and will provide another review at that time

Thanks
Adam

Packer had a blast at his vacation with Mackenzie and her family. He obviously plays the entire time because he is just exhausted the next day. Thank you Mackenzie for making my fur baby feel at home.
I went away Presidents' Day weekend. Mackenzie ended up taking my dog to the veterinarian for emergency care. The roads were terrible getting home from out of town. I appreciate all she has done for me and my dog.
Packer had a great time at Mackenzie's. He must've played hard because he's very tired today. He was very happy and excited to play with new friends.
Mackenzie was amazing. She called, texted and even sent me pictures of my dog while I was away. This was the first time I have ever left him with someone and I really was anxious about leaving him. Mackenzie calmed my fears by keeping me informed from day one. Thank you Mackenzie, Lincoln was his usual self upon return which truly says a lot about the quality of care given to him. We will definitely be calling you again and this time without anxiety. So happy we found you.:)

Zimmer's stay was fantastic again! He loves Mackinzie and has a new friend named Cash. It's so nice to travel knowing that your pup is being cared for so well. Thank you Mackinzie!
Mackenzie was great!!!! This was the first time we ever left Cooper with someone that isn't family. We felt very much at ease right from the beginning at the met and greet. She kept in touch with updates over the two weeks we were gone. I would and have recommended Mackenzie to other dog owners.

Doogie had a wonderful time playing and running with the other pups. Mackenzie has a beautiful safe farm for them to play and took great care of our Doogie. We recommend her care 100%.
Another great time for my dog! I can be sure she is safe so I can enjoy my time. Such a great feeling. Highly recommend Mackenzie to everyone!
I'm so grateful for the great care provided by Mackenzie! As an independent contractor who works out of state for extended periods of time it's so important that I find reliable, trustworthy loving care for my Lucky Boy. Lucky spent the whole summer with Mackenzie and she provided all one would expect and more. I so appreciated her kindly patience with his 'naughtiness' during the initial adjustment phase. He loved her and adjusted very well in is 'home away from home' and had a truly wonderful summer! High recommendations with much thanks!

HIGHLY recommend Mackenzie. She calmed my fears and made Scotchie feel right at home with her and her family. She is an awesome sitter!!!
Once again a perfect stay for Zimmer! I love the relaxed feeling we get knowing that while we are away he's in great hands.
Very friendly and great with our dog would highly recommend and will defiantly book with her again next time we go on vacation.
Just like last time, everything was great. My dog Leia loved it there and we felt great knowing we left her in very capable hands. Thanks Again for Everything!! Highly recommended!
MacKenzie was awesome! Shelby is a 2 year old high energy, Lab pit mix. Knowing he was in the home of a dog lover, on a farm with room to run, was such a relief for me! You know the story....one bad experience at a kennel and now I'm the one that gets crazy anxious about leaving my dog anywhere (Really!!!) and MacKenzie had me at ease the first time we met. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her and I'll won't use anyone else. Thanks you so much!

Mackenzie was very friendly an welcomed Armani w open arms. She kept me updated w Armani an sent me a picture as well. My dog will def be going back. I loved that there r no crates an plenty of play time.
Mackenzie was great with my two dogs Lucy, and Charlie! It was a relief to know they would not be stuck in a kennel while I was gone and I received pictures and updates through out the week. I will definitely have my dogs stay with Mackenzie again!
McKenzie was wonderful with my dog Leia! I was really happy with everything! She e-mailed me updates of how my dog was doing while I was away and sent pictures as well. My dog actually bonded with some baby goats that were born while she was being boarded and seemed to have the time of her life. Thanks very much McKenzie! We will definitely be back the next time we are traveling and can't take the pup.

This was Zimmers third stay with Mackenzie and again it was fabulous! I know he is happy there. I feel very content leaving him with her.
Mackenzie is wonderful and she has sweet personality. Initially, I was afraid to leave my dog with her because she doesn't have a fenced yard. After I saw her property it calmed my fears. She has two fenced areas on her property, like a dog park. She has 2 horses and a bunch of goats. She's also small organic farmer. Her home is clean, neat and organized. Mackenzie knew I was fearful of leaving my dog with a "stranger". She sent me pictures of my dog having fun to quell my anxiety. Thank You

We have a VERY energetic 7 month old German Short Haired Pointer (hunting dog) and often have difficulty finding a place to keep him. He is raw energy that often needs a little more patience, strict redirection and tons of exercise. Mackenzie's home was a good fit for him and he came back happy and healthy. The pictures made me feel more confident and comfortable whilst on vacation. Thanks SO much Mackenzie M & Co! :) Highly recommend this home, worth the extra drive from Syracuse!!!!

This was out first attempt at leaving our dogs with someone other than family. We could not have been happier. The dogs seemed to enjoy themselves (Mackenzie sent us pix) and we felt very comfortable about their care. We had a minor medical issue with one of the dogs and Mackenzie handled it very professionally and responsibly. We will definitely want our dogs to stay here again.

This was Zimmers second stay with Makinzie and he loved it! It was a long stay as well, 9 days. We are so very pleased with Makinzie and thankful that we found her.
To sum it up Wonderful Experience! I actually think my dog is missing her. I contacted Makinzie while we were away and she immediatley responded assuring me Zimmer was doing fine. It made my time away so much more enjoyable knowing Zimmer was with such a pet loving person.

Mackinzie was fantastic with the pups. For a border collie and a corgi, thats no small effort. Plenty of photos while we were away on our trip, and we came home to find them happy and zonked. Can't recommend her highly enough. Absolutely our go-to from now on.
