**UPDATE: we are now the proud owners of an RV! It is big and cozy and so much fun to go places in, even in the rain and cold... Is your pup a leisurely RV type? Most dogs are, they've all have had a grand time at the beach or mountains.. There's plenty of room to bring them all along!
Our family consists of James, Tina, Honey Girl, Buckets, and Catass. Tina works from home and is home almost all of the time. James, is my partner for life, is sweet, gentle, smart, and helpful to all of us.. Never have seen a dog that didn't just melt and fall in love with James, he's one of those special people. Dogs know.
James is the early bird and Tina is the night owl, so we are able to accommodate the pups feeding and potty schedule easily.
Our chihuahuas absolutely love each other, they are both very well behaved, in my opinion, perfect angels from heaven.
Honey Girl will give a very typical chihuahua greeting by barking for the first little bit. She sometimes barks while showing other dogs her things. She always warms up. She's as smart as a whip and knows all the rules around the house and helps keep everyone in line. Bucket is a ray of sunshine and will be delighted to meet you. We mostly do DogVacay for him, it's his favorite.
The cat keeps his own schedule, he spends most of his time outside or sleeping.. He is not a sporty kind of cat, he does not run, low risk of chasing. He has been great about teaching dogs how to respect the feline tribe. He's extremely patient and not skiddish in the least. He may think he's part canine.
We love all dogs, we enjoy to have small dogs, and senior citizen dogs over here. We are definitely "TEAM SMALL DOG" over here...
Please let us know any questions or concerns you might have, we would be happy to discuss. We always prefer to do a "meet n greet" prior to your stay. We are very flexible for scheduling a "meet and greet" and for pick-ups and drop-offs. (The chihuahuas and I are not much for mornings, but can do it if necessary)
Thank you kindly for considering us.

Thank you a million times over to Tina and her pack (including Honeygirl and Bucket) for taking such good care of my boys. Like many other first-time users of Dog Vacay, I was anxious about leaving my dogs with a stranger, but the meet-and-greet was a perfect way to get a feel for the environment and people your dogs will be around. I think it's an essential part of the process. Right away I knew that my dogs would be safe with Tina and James and it was confirmed when they let me know they had a strict on-leash policy. An example of how Tina is always thinking about what will make the dogs happy: my little guy is afraid to walk on hardwood/linoleum, so Tina made a path through the house with area rugs so he could be with the pack. Above and beyond. Thanks so much!
Bandit and Jenna love their vacation with Tina!
Tina is providing excellent daycare for my pug, Roshi. He gets along great with her dogs and feels welcome in her home. I would absolutely recommend Tina as a trustworthy, reliable, and very responsible Dogvacay hostess. I really appreciate the care she gives Roshi while I'm at work, which allows me to have peace of mind.

Kindest thanks!
Paula and Roshi
Tina was fabulous. Amazing experience.
I just left my little doxen Marty for almost two weeks with these guys. I get pretty anxious about leaving Marty behind because, let's be honest, he is my child. Tina was so accommodating and let him cuddle in her bed, and on the couches whenever he pleased. She put my mind at ease by texting me pictures of him everyday. Marty is pretty spoiled at my house, and I know that he was spoiled with love and treats and other doggie kisses when he was with them! I could tell when I went to pick him up that he really felt at home. He just went and laid down in his bed after saying hi to me :) I would trust her with my dog any and every day!
Tina obviously took great care of Stubbs. We appreciated her communication and flexibility with pick up and drop off times. Thanks so much!!!
Iggy had a great stay with Tina and her kids. I wouldn't hesitate to have him visit again.
Our two small beagles had their first stay with Tina and it lasted two weeks. Such a long stay in a strange house could be stressful, but they came home happy and tired! It appeared from their pictures, Tina's recap and their reaction that they we happy campers. We felt very comfortable with Tina's home and her love for doggies is obvious. We'll go to Tina straight away the next time we need our beagles watched.

Thank you Tina!!!!!!!
You guys were great! I think he was sad to leave his friends. Cecil had a blast & thank you so much for photo updates. He will definitely be back next time I'm out of town.
Hands down, this was the best dog sitting experience we have ever had. Tina & James are so sweet. They sent us pics of our little ones daily. It was so nice to be away and not have to worry. Thank you!
Dogs were there 2-1/2 days and had fun with Tina's 2 dogs and 1 cat. She is great and dogs had a great time. Of course they were happy to see us when we returned. I give her five stars!
Tina was super awesome to work with and our dogs loved their stay. Leaving our pups with someone we trust and know will care for them like we would, makes Dog Vacay a must for dog owners.

Thank you Tina for a great experience. We look forward to working with you in the future!
Really great home for a small dog like mine. Tina is calm and her little dogs are entertaining. Excellent experience.
Juniper and Sheldon were in wonderful hands; Tina kept us updated with lots of pictures and seemed to really enjoy taking care of them. We will definitely come back. Thank you for giving my wife and I a much needed vacay :)
Tina, James, Honey Girl, and Bucket were the best hosts I could have hoped for for my dog. This was the first time I had left my dog with anyone other than friends and family. If your dog likes a home filled with lots of love and affection, this is the place. My dog came home happy and content despite me leaving him for nine days. My dog now has a new home when I'm away from home.
After interviewing quite a few providers from this website, we chose Tina for a week long stay. Our dog walked into her house and immediately made himself at home. Tina kept us updated with photos and did a great job monitoring his activity level (he was recovering from knee surgery.) Our dog had a great time and I didn't seem to want to leave his new friends (both two legged and four.) I highly recommend her for smaller and/or older dogs.
My dog Gunther, a welsh springer spaniel, had a fantastic stay with Tina and her two chihuahuas. Tina was flexible about drop off and pick up timing. Also she is home most of the day so Gunther got plenty of attention. Highly recommended.
