About Tracy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have two dogs of our own so we understand what it is like to leave them behind. We want you to relax and know that while you are away your babies are being very well taken care of. We have a very pet friendly, comfortable, loving and safe house for them to feel right at home while you are gone. We have a large fenced in yard so they can have plenty of space to run around and get exercise.

*******We offer several Discounts*******

**We offer a discount of $5 per day off any stay of 8 days or more.

**Multi-dog discount if you have more than one dog the rate for the second and third dogs are only $15/per night.

*********************************************

We would love to schedule a meet and greet so you can see your pets new playmates and where they will be staying.

We also understand that you will not always be able to do a meet and greet first so just let us know. We are very flexible.

We promise your dogs will get pampered while you are away. We look forward to speaking with you soon and taking care of your pets.

It was difficult to leave my dogs, Maggie and Pete, for 4 days. However I was confident in my choice of Tracy to stay with them in my home. I was not disappointed. While away I received daily text updates and even pictures.

Tracy loves dogs and it shows. He is confident with their care so I could be confident in him - and enjoy my time away.

Maggie, Pete and I say "Thank you, Tracy. See you next time!".

What a wonderful experience! My dogs are constant companions and I've never traveled without them before, so when I had to Tracy and Mike were who I chose to care for JD and Frannie.
They are obviously "dog people" and understanding of dog people needs, keeping me up to date on how the dogs were and sending photos.
And most importantly, JD and Frannie were happy and cared for.
Thanks Tracy and Mike!!

This was our first experience using Dog Vaca. We are both exceptionally pleased with Tracy and Mike's excellent attention to our elderly dog. Because of what they observed and shared with us, she is getting the medical attention we (so sadly) had over looked. Many, many thanks to these kind, responsible gentlemen.

Tracy and Mike made us feel very comfortable with leaving our girls at their house. We could tell they were very experienced with dogs sitting. Our girls can be quite the handful as there are three of them and one is deaf and vision impaired, but all was well! We really appreciated the frequent pupdates on them.

We had a very nice meet-and-greet with Tracy, Mike, and their two dogs! My dog is generally scared of dogs her size, but she seemed to warm up to them quickly. When I came to pick her up, the three of them were out in the yard! My dog was exhausted after her vacation, which is always a good sign. I'm definitely going to rebook for my future trips!

The puppies had such a great time. I hope to become a regular!
My dog Tanner has stayed twice and both times he seems to be really relaxed with Tracey and Mike. I like the personal attention he receives vs. when I board him at lodging businesses where there are so many dogs. Dropping off and picking up is so easy to arrange and I love that they are close to my house.

Tracy & Mike are absolutely, positively the best! I believe Tyson has officially made their home as his second home. He is so comfortable and relaxed with Tracy & Mike. It puts a smile on both of our faces. :-) You're wonderful!!!
Tracy & Mike, you have made Tyson and I feel right at home; like family. We are truly blessed! When I'm away I get great joy in sharing the pictures you send of Tyson having fun or just "chillin" as he snoozes in the afternoon. :-) Thanks much for everything!

Tracy & Mike were absolutely, positively THE BEST! They made me and "my baby", Tyson, feel just like family. Tyson was well taken care of and daily pictures were fantastic. I could tell he was having tons of fun under their care.
I would highly recommend Tracy & Mike to any and everyone in need of this wonderful service. I no longer worry about leaving "my baby". :-)
A very BIG THANK YOU to Tracy & Mike!!!

This was a new experience for our 14-yr old bischon AND she certainly enjoyed it much more than a typical kennel experience.

Mike and Tracy made her feel right at home (you know, all spoiled pet owners like us allow their dogs both on the furniture and to sleep on the beds).

Best were the photos updating her stay. We even inquired if she was eating (normally, Cali goes on a hunger strike until we return) and got a quick response that she sure was!

We recommend Mike and Tracy highly...just don't make them so popular that we cant get booked again when we take off next time!

Tracy & Mike were great! They answered all of my questions prior to the visit and Nala enjoyed her visit. I recommend them and will be contacting them for future visits. Thanks guys!
Mike and Tracy are wonderful caregivers and have a very nice home with a fenced yard. They had absolutely no reservations about caring for our 13-year old Mini Schnauzer that was diagnosed with cancer and requires extra care and daily medication. We received daily pictures of her time with them, which really gave us peace of mind. We would definitely request Mike and Tracy again!

Tracy and Mike have been great with our two dogs Laila and Kacper. I feel at ease knowing they aren't locked away in a kennel for days at a time, and that they are well looked after. The daily updates and pictures are absolutely wonderful, and while I hate being away from my pups, I am happy that when I have to they are in a nice, loving home!

I couldn't be happier with the care Tracy and Mike provided for Maya. I received pictures each day along with notes about how she was doing. This was our first time using Tracy and Mike and it won't be our last. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Have been taking my two dogs to Mike and Tracy for quite some time and multiple visits...and just have to say how happy I have been with them...They have been so accommodating ..when I had a family emergency and had to find someone short notice it was no problem...my dogs are always so relaxed when I pick them up...just would say...anyone who needs a sitter...would highly recommend them to anyone!

Tracy sent us a picture of Cash and he looked quite fine & happy. All went well & we would ask him to take care of him again ( if he'll have us, LOL). Thanks Tracy!
We are so glad to have found Dog Vacay. For less than the cost of a cold, tiny cage at a kennel, Rusty gets real care in a real home. She was terrified at the kennel, but she excitedly runs up the steps at Mike & Tracy's to visit her human and animal friends!

This review is too long in coming. Tracy and Mike did a wonderful job with my dogs, especially considering that one is blind and the other on medication. Their home was spotless as was their large fenced-in yard. There were other dogs there, and Mike and Tracy did a great job introducing them to each other, so there were no dog-to-dog issues. My Stella and Benne were happy to see me, but obviously well cared for. The best thing about taking them to Tracy's and Mike's is that the dogs were treated as they are in my own home: free to wander the home and hop up on the couch. I know I'll call Mike and Tracy if I ever need to leave my pups behind. Thank you both.

Tracy and Mike were excellent with my pups when I went out of town. I got daily photo updates that really, really put me at ease -- I am neurotic when it comes to my dogs and was incredibly stressed about leaving them, but they were in great hands! I will definitely, definitely use Tracy and Mike again the next time I go out of town!

Tracy and Mike are just wonderful sitters.I was a little sad that I was leaving my girls for nine days, but when we took the girls to meet for the first time,it was greate! The girls got to meet tracy and mike. When we put all the dogs together,they got along from the start.I know they loved to take care of dogs they are caring ,and understood ,how I felt leaving my girls.When we left ,all my concerns melted away. THANKS TRACY AND MIKE

Tracy & Mike took great care of our dogs while we were out of town. They have a very nice home with two dogs of their own, so we were happy to have other dog lovers watching our pups. They were very courteous, kind, and they sent us pictures of our dogs every day. I highly recommend them!

Tracy and Mike were wonderful! They were so friendly and took excellent care of our dogs. I got multiple updates a day, which really put me at ease. I would recommend them to anyone that is looking for a safe place to leave their beloved furkids. My dogs had huge smiles on their faces when we came to get them!

Tracy and Mike were great with Tobey. We met them in advance and made us feel very comfortable leaving Tobey with him. No problems or issues and we didn't have to worry all weekend long!
Mike was a fantastic dog host! He kept us updated with text messages and pictures and was very attentive to our dog (who freaks out with 4th of July fireworks). I felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Mike, and I strongly recommend him. Overall, a great Dogvacay!

I couldn't be happier with the entire experience! Tracy and Mike were just so wonderful to work with. I cannot say enough good things about them. I needed to find someone last minute and so thankful I found them and that they were able to accommodate me. I had no reservations at all and both my dogs seemed to feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door. It is so reassuring knowing your pets are in a loving and caring environment. It gave me such peace of mind. I highly recommend Tracy and Mike and will be certain to use them again for future DogVacays!!

Mike & Tracy are always a pleasure to work with and our puppy really seems to enjoy her visits with them. They're our go-to dogsitters in Fort Wayne.
We were worried about our dog while trying to plan a little elopment getaway but I'm glad we found Mike and Tracy. They were very kind and accommodating despite our short notice. Stewie acted like he wanted to stay and play with his new friends! That was very important to me and a huge relief. Thank you!

Loved this experience! I was really timid at first but after a friend recommended these guys I thought I'd give them a try. Lily was so comfortable immediately after taking her in and was a very happy girl when I picked her up. They accommodated my situation by keeping her an extra night. I will be using them again and again with no worries .

Tracy and Mike are AWESOME!!! They treated my Cindy like the princess she is. They sent me daily pictures of her playing and cuddling. I will definitely use them again. She had a good time at their house. I recommend them highly!!! Cindy will be vacationing with Tracy and Mike again.

Excellence! Mike and Tracy helped me out in a quick and easy way, my furry boy loves his stay and I cannot recommend them high enough!!!
Tracey and Mike were great! My husband and I left for a week vacation and we entrusted our 1 year old puppy to them. They did not let us down. They were kind and caring. Their house was so clean! They sent me daily updates with pictures! I cannot recommend them enough!!!! They are just great and awesome people.

It was my first time leaving both dogs and for five days was a little traumatic for me but I got pictures regularly and both seemed to have done absolutely fine..will be coming back with them!
These two were amazing with our dog, Bean. She is a nervous puppy but they made her feel comfortable and treated her like family. We even got texts with photo updates on her and a genuine experience all together. I would highly recommend their services to anyone who needs a dog sitter!

Tracy and Mike graciously worked around our schedule though we actually booked later in the week. They have a fenced in yard which was great for the dogs. We also kept in touch during our trip with notes and pictures. It was great. We really felt good about the whole experience since we usually take the dogs to a kennel.

From the moment we walked in for our meet-and-greet I knew we made a great choice. Tracy answered all of my questions and he has two amazing dogs. I was comforted by seeing how happy his dogs were and how he jumped right in and welcomed our schnauzer, Gus.

We left Gus for a weekend and when we picked up him up he had the biggest smile! He loved playing with Mo Mo and Harley so much when we got him home he literally crashed. Tracy was very receptive and kept us updated with our fur-baby by sending photos and periodic heads-up messages. Gus did get sick, but we appreciated he offered full detail without hesitation.

Gus was spoiled by two loving individuals that we would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a fun, warm, welcoming environment. We will definitely be telling our friends about them!!

Excellent communication before arrival date. Daily updates with photos while we were gone. Lots of patience with my crazy puppy! Highly recommended:)
I am so very grateful that we found Tracy and Mike! I needed a last minute sitter for our dog Captain America (my 4 year old son's dog) and did not get to schedule a meet and greet first, so I was nervous having to leave our dog with someone we hadn't met. After meeting them at drop off I no longer had any worries. They are so welcoming and their dogs are very friendly as well. They kept us updated on our dog and my son was thrilled to get to see pictures of Captain America having fun and being well taken care of (even a bit spoiled). This is the first time that I have used DogVacay and was unsure about the whole process, Tracy was very quick to respond and guide me thru the reservation process. I feel very fortunate to have found them and would highly recommend them if you are looking for a caring sitter for your dog! We will defiantly be requesting more dog sitting services with them! Thank you both so very much!!

Tracey and Mike are definitely dog lovers! Abbie had fun with their Hartley ! I I felt very comfortable leaving Abbie with them. Would not hesitate to use them again.
Tracey did a great job watching Rocky! We left him with Tracey for 10 days and they kept us updated the whole time with pictures and messages of how Rocky was doing! They were very friendly and opened their home to us like it was our own! We flew in a little late and they still let us come get Rocky! I would use them again and highly recommend them!

Tracy was awesome with our dogs. We were really worried about leaving them, but felt much better after meeting him. The dogs seemed happy and healthy when we picked them up. We would use Tracy again! Thanks again!
We had a very good meet and greet with Tracy. Our dog got along great with his dogs, and he was very at home when we dropped him off and when we picked him up. Thank you Tracy, Greg and Rhonda Cox
