My Cavalier King Charles, Jack, had a wonderful stay with Dale, Gaylord and their sweet pup Sophie. They were very attentive to and considerate of Jack's normal routine and made every effort to make him feel at home in his new surroundings. I am a bit of a worrier so I loved the frequent up dates and videos which confirmed that my Jack was in good hands. Jack's vacay was only three days, but I would not hesitate to have him stay with Sophie and family for several weeks or more.
Sophie B's is the perfect venue if you want a pampering experience for your pooch. Dale and Sophie greeted Gidget and allowed her to warm up on her own time. Dale kept "mom" and "dad" up to date with adorable videos and photos throughout the stay. Great experience. We will be back!
We couldn't have been happier with our experience with Sophie's doggie vacay. Our Baxter is an old soulful Boston Terrier and the amount of love and attention that Sophie's parents gave our dog was just over the top. We received so many videos and pictures that we felt he was right there with us. We can't thank them enough for this experience. These folks are like family.
As always, Dale and Gaylord took excellent care of our pup, Lucy :)! I love getting all the photos and videos everyday. It makes me feel so much better to see how much Lucy is enjoying herself. In addition, they were very flexible to accommodate our ever changing schedule. I highly recommend letting your companion stay at Sophie's Place!
We needed someone to watch our Toy Poodle, CeCe, while we went out to dinner and a play. Leaving her with Dale, Sophie’s mom, was the perfect solution. Dale was kind and gave CeCe plently of attention. She was very flexible on our drop-off and pick-up time. She also made sure CeCe was comfortable in her new surroundings before we left. Plus, Dale sent a bunch of pictures letting us know that CeCe was having a great time. We would not hesitate leaving CeCe with Dale and Sophie again.
Gemma had a great time. I know she was well cared for. Dale was very sensitive to Gemma getting acclimated for her stay. I enjoyed my visit to the Cape knowing Gemma had a happy, safe place to hang out!
Sophie and her family (Dale and Gaylord) took very good care of our two little dogs. We knew right away that they loved dogs and took time to get to know us and our dogs. It gave us a real sense of comfort since we were far from home. They were gentle in getting to to know our dogs and accepting of their personalities. They had a fenced outside yard and allowed the dogs to share their home as well. We got lots of pictures and updates while we were out and about. We would recommend Sophie, Dale and Gaylord!
Sophie B was an unusally attentive and caring host for our 15 year old Rat Terrier. She sent multiple updates and photos in Higgins' three day stay. I recommend her with no reservation.
I feel like I hit the jack pot with Dale and Gaylord. I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my dog, Roscoe. It was so nice to know that he was in good hands while we were on vacation. Dale sent me videos and photos all day, which was really comforting. I will definitely be sending Roscoe back.
Bandit had the best time at Sophie's place! They took such good care of him! I got update pictures and videos very often, I wasn't even worried about him at all! Thanks for everything friends!

Our Tiko is one happy pup after his stay!
He loved Sophie and Dale,
who couldn't have been more accommodating!
They send pictures/updates and u can download WhatsApp to get videos too!

!!!Thank You So Much!!!
This was a great spot for our dog. He got the exercise, love, and attention that we had hoped would be the case. The hosts are very kind, and the house and yard are set up perfectly for a dog to have plenty of space. We will definitely use them again!
Dale and her husband were kind and attentive hosts to our dog over the Fourth of July weekend. They were very communicative about how our dog was doing and very flexible about the dropoff and pickup.
Chewie had a wonderful time with Sophie & her Mom & Dad,
Noelle spent 1 week with Sophie and Dale and Gaylord and had a great time. She was very comfortable with them and got all the snuggle time she needed. We will certainly bring her back again the next time we travel North. Dale is a caring provider and truly loves what she does for the dogs in her care. We would recommend her to anyone with a small dog(s) used to lots of attention.
I highly recommend Sophie's Place for doggy overnights and daycare! Dale, Gaylord, and their dog Sophie were incredibly caring and attentive hosts :). I had never left my dog with a sitter before and it was very comforting to receive so many photos and videos every day! They were also incredibly accommodating with our specific needs. Thank you :)!
Modo had a lovely play date with Sophie yesterday, he came home a very happy and contented dog. Thank you Dale for being so flexible. Kathy
Great experience as always. Thank you Dale for taking care of Modo. He enjoyed his playdate with Sophie today. Thank you for being so flexible too. Kathy
once again a wonderful home for our cavalier to hang out. Dale Gaylord and Sophie are the perfect hosts. We will always return. They only take small dogs and that is perfect for our 16lb King Charles. Thank you
Kassie had a wonderful time our cavalier. Dale was wonderful in sending us updates pictures and even videos. We felt so comfortable leaving her there that we booked again.
My dog had a terrific stay! They took great care of him and sent me lots of photo updates.
As always Sophie and Dale were wonderful hosts ! My dogs didn't want to leave!
Once again, Wally had an amazing few days with Sophie and her family! Such a loving and caring place for our little guy - his fourth time with them, and it won't be the last. Thanks again!
Peppermint had another great stay at the Sophie's. He seemed relaxed and at home when he was picked up the next day. He loves the dehydrated Grass Fed Pet Treats the host mom makes more than any other treats that he gets. I'm sure when we run out of them, he will demand ordering some more!
This was one of the nicest dogvacay experience we've ever had! The hosts, Dale and Gaylord and their pup Sophie are all very welcoming and sweet. The place is like the garden of Eden! And Dale makes these incredible dog treats with organic ingredients that my dogs absolutely love. I'll be ordering more as they ask for them all day long. I wish they were in my hometown because I'd use them all the time, but we were traveling out to the cape and had to drop them for a couple of days. The dogs were happy and relaxed when we came back. The hosts are retired and very flexible with drop off and pick ups. Highly recommended!!
Our dog had the best time at Sophie's Place. It's always great to know that he is so well taken care of by Dale and Gaylord. Thank you!
Ella had a great day with Sophie and her pal Gaylord! Worry free for me while I was at working a long day! Love the text messages, pictures and video's too! Thanks Sophie and Dale!
Once again, Cosmo and Stella had a fabulous time with Dale Gaylord and Sophie. They love it there. The pictures and videos are wonderful !
Scruffy had the best time with his new friends Sophie, Dale & Gaylord. He is my baby and I felt so comfortable leaving him with them. Dale was so sweet and sent me videos and texts all weekend. My husband and I are so excited we found them as we just moved here to Massachusetts.
Our little pomeranian Zoe had a wonderful time staying with Sophie (the resident pup), Dale, and Gaylord. While we were away, Dale even sent us daily photos to keep us updated on Zoe's activities!

Would definitely recommend Sophie's Place in Cape Cod!!
Sophie & Dale recently took care of our dog for four days. it was so great to receive the text & video updates, we felt totally comfortable that he was happy and very well taken care of, giving us great piece of mind. We will continue to use to use Sophie's in the future and highly recommend it to others.
Ella enjoyed her first visit with Sophie very much! Sophie's house is very pet friend and Dale her owner is a very knowledgable pet owner.

Ella especially liked relaxing in the house and playing in the fun play yard. She came home happy and sleepy after a very fun day!

Looking forward to our next Vacay with Sophie and Dale!
Dale is an awesome host!!! Sophie is the sweetest dog ever, she kept us updated with pictures and messages. Totally recommended!
Once again, Dale Sophie and Gaylord were wonderful hosts for my 2 dogs. Dale sent many photos, videos and updates. It really made my trip that much better knowing my dogs were well taken care of and loved like their own. Thank you! Thank you!
Once again, Sophie and her family were super hosts to our Wally. So accommodating and caring - we can't thank them enough for the peace of mind we have when leaving our dog with them. THANK YOU!
Just picked up Modo from Sophie's Place and he had a fun overnight stay playing their dog. I think he had a great time and I will certainly use her again. I felt he was right at home and probably did not even miss me. Kathy T
This was our second visit with Dale and Sophie. My 2 dogs Cosmo and Stella were so excited to go back. Tails were wagging as soon as we got there. Dale is so great about sending messages and pictures ~ which helps when we were missing them. Thanks to Dale, Sophie and Gaylord for opening their home and welcoming our babies !!
My dog has a 'home away' from home at Sophies place! I have peace of mind knowing my dog Chop is content and safe . He wags his tail as we make out way up the drive-way! So blessed to have Sophies place. Suzanne
This was a first time for us using DogVacay and we were going to be out of the country for 2 1/2 weeks.
Nervous? Not after our meet and greet with Auntie Dale who makes it just fun to be part of her family. Our two dogs, Jameson and Scout, were treated like her own precious Sophie and they were both healthy and happy upon our return. Dale's emails and videos of the dogs were a blast for us to see, offering us joy and laughs. We truly did not worry for one minute which is priceless. The absolute best day care kennel could never compete with being in a loving home where they get individualized attention and loving. We would use her again in a heartbeat. Jamie and Scout send their love and appreciation, and do do we!
Cosmo and Stella stayed with Sophie for 4 days and it was a great experience for all of us - all around !
Dale was absolutely great ! She sent photos and videos of my 2 dogs playing with Sophie. It made our trip that much more enjoyable knowing our babies were well taken care of, loved and were playing with Sophie! It was obvious they had a great time.
We have already booked our next stayover for the dogs!!! We highly recommend Dale and Sophie !
Dale took great care of Seamus while we were away for the night! During the day, she took him to her daughter's birthday party where Seamus was surrounded by a lot of people and got to spend hours swimming in the pool! We was so tired from his big day out that he slept like a log and was well rested when we picked him up the next morning! Though we were only away from Seamus for less than 24 hours, he had a fantastic time and didn't have time to miss mom and dad with all the excitement of his big day at Sophie's Place!
Yogi has stayed with Sophie a number of times this summer and all have been great. They play great together and have become best friends. We especially enjoy the videos of the two dogs playing together that Dale sends us during his visits. Anyone should feel their dog will be happy,safe, and well taken care of when they are at Sophie's place.
This was Buttons first time at Sophie's and boy did he have a great time. Pictures and videos sent to us during his stay were great! Buttons can't wait to go back!
Sophie's was wonderful for Murphy! Dale is exceptional and stayed in contact with us via telephone, e-mail and texts. Murphy is much more relaxed around others now and as owners, we were comforted by the updates of photos, videos and texts. We were also happy with Dale's dedication to ensuring Murphy was happy.

Thank you and we could not be more happy with Sophie's!
I have two beautiful toy girl Yorkshire 7 months old sisters that been together since birth. They are my babies, I was in a tough situation my son was getting married that weekend at the Cape and the sitter we had arranged to watch them had a family health issue come up and couldn't care for them. Sophie opened her house up for them even though Sophie only takes one house guest a night she made an exception for my girls. Them being so small and so young Sophie MOM helped us out. My girls had a wonderful time. I got up to date pictures and videos of how they were doing. They were happy and very comfortable being there. Sophie Mommy Dale and Daddy were great host for my girls. I would defiantly have them watch my girls again. Thank You so much for carrying for my girls. I had enough to things to prepare for and knowing they were being cared for so wonderful made it easy to focus on the wedding. If there was more stars to rate you I would. 5 just isn't enough !! Thank You so much.
We left our dog at Sophie's place for a day this past weekend and it was great. The owners were very pleasant and took the time to get to know Sammy and make him comfortable before we left. We received many texts and photo's throughout the day showing Sammy having a great time. Will definitely use Sophie's Place again.
Sophie Place is a beautiful and well maintained property. Dale is both knowledgeable and friendly. She is loving and attentive to all visiting dogs. My dog is both excited upon arrival and content leaving. I feel so at ease knowing my dog Choppy is well provided for and loved there. What a gem for your furry friend on Cape Cod!
Our dog, Rugby, had a fantastic time with Sophie. We got tons of photo updates and we know he was spoiled with attention and special treats. We would definitely use Sophie and Dale as hosts again!
Another great visit for yogi. We especially enjoy the VIDEOS Dale sends showing the dogs playing together and having fun!
Dale and Sophie are great hostesses! Dale made everything so easy and thought of everything to make Rosie's stay comfortable for her. Rosie felt right at home and it was fun to see photos of her in texts Dale sent to me throughout Rosie's stay. I was able to relax and have fun knowing that Rosie was so well cared for!
What a lovely stay our dog Libby had at Sophie's Place! The owner Dale was so attentive and loving with our dog. Receiving picture updates was such a treat. Knowing Libby was having such a great time was so comforting. Sophie made for a great playmate! Libby came home to us well loved, refreshed and relaxed. I'm not sure who had the better vacation, us or her! Thank you so much Dale, Gaylord and Sophie for the comfort of home and the 1st class service!
Another spectacular vacay experience ! our dog had three fun days and nights with Sophie and Dale kept us informed throughout by sending us cute photos. This was his fourth stay at Sophie's and we highly recommend leaving your dog with such a great caretaker.
Another great stay at Sophie's Place...Thank you Dale, Gaylord and of course Sophie too!
I think Izzy was upset she had to go home... They where very caring, kept me updated all the time and clearly love dogs... definitely recommended. Thanks very much!
Dale was a wonderfully caring and caring host for my old basset. While I was on a 2 week vacation, my dog had a dental emergency, and Dale took care of my dog as if she were her own; special treats for her because my dog was being a finicky eater.Dale clearly loves dogs and treats them as family.
This was McDuff's' second visit to Sophie B's qnd both tails were wagging profusely when they met again! Mac scooted in without missing a beat as though he lived there! Only one quick look goodbye and then it was off playing with Sophie B. Dale again treated McDuff like he was her own qnd Gaylord her husband was delighted to have another Westie in the house and sleeping in their bed! Sophie B's place is beautiful, well groomed, and very dog-friendly. McDuff had the run of the house and could plop down anywhere. Dale was meticulous about his feeding, playing, and all-around care. Her doggie karma, knowledge, and concern is first-class and we highly recommend her! FIVE STARS!!!
As soon as we pulled into the driveway for our second visit to Sophie's Place, Yogi got very excited and couldn't wait to go inside. He had another great time playing with Sophie, and came home happy and exhausted. Dale and Gaylord do a great job taking care of Yogi and sending us pictures and updates. It's a great feeling to be able to leave Yogi at a place we know he will be well taken care of and happy.

Sophie B was an A+ super find! McDuff and Sophie where like two peas in a pod -- or more like two Westies in a whirlwind! Sophie's home is warm and cozy and the grounds are a park-like wonderland. Dale and Gaylord were always attentive to our Westie McDuff, sent pictures daily to assure us that he adjusted quickly -- the one asleep on his back with four paws in the air and another with his favorite toy in his mouth made that obvious -- and they even gave him his own spot in the family bedroom! Thank you so much Dale and Gaylord, and we HIGHLY recommend Sophie B. to all dog-lovers!
Our dog Yogi had a great stay with Sophie. It was so wonderful to be able to be completely relaxed while we were away as we knew he was so well cared for. Dale is such a great host and we appreciated all the text and photo updates. We will for sure be having Yogi visit Sophie and Dale again! Thank you!!
Cali and Sophie had a blast during their weekend. Dale took great care of Cali and was sad to leave.
We left our little Owen with Sophie's Choice for 3 days, and he along with us couldn't have been happier. I was totally put at ease knowing he'd be cared for & loved as he was their own.. I know Owen can't wait to go back to play with Sophie next time we have to go away.. Thank you Dale & Sophie's Choice!!
Another GREAT stay for our pooch with Sophie and her loving family. Not sure who had a better week at the Cape - us or our dog. Thanks again!!
My 3 year old mini-poodle enjoyed staying at the Sophie's very much. He received a VIP treatment from start to finish, lots of TLC and freedom in a safe environment. He and Sophie hit it off wonderfully and just from looking at the photos I could tell he was feeling totally at home, relaxed and content. The host mom was very helpful in every way, making my trip continuation easy and worry free. I will definitely use her again.
Another great stay ! So nice to have peace of mind when leaving my baby when we can't take her with us.
Sophie and her parents were wonderful! We received pictures and updates of our dog and Sophie each day. Our dog came home exhausted and happy - what more could we want!! Highly recommended!!! Safe, clean, loving environment.
Sophie and family welcomed my dog with open arms. Even though my dog tends to be unsure towards new people by the time I picked her up she was giving kisses to her host family. Excellent care all around !!! Picture updates were a plus as well.
