We were very pleased with our pups stay with Teri! She sent us photos and gave us updates through out his stay.
I am glad we found Teri in the Laguna Vista area. We packed our dog'ss bag and instructions at drop off with a in person explanation. It was that simple. I was pleased when I was allowed to check in with Teri everyday to see how our dog was doing.
We were very happy with the care of our little pup, and she is a major handful! Will definitely book again! Thanks for all the updates!
Isaac loved Teri! I have never had such a good care taker for my dog. For once I feel like I can leave town and not have to worry. Teri updated me with pictures daily. Isaac was spoiled and I think he misses Teri more than he missed us while we was away!
We had to find a setter at the last minute and Terri was able to take care of Bella for us. Terri and her husband were great and sent us several photos of our baby while we were gone. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Teri was awesome! She is a sweetheart to say the least. Her home is beautiful and it was as if our little Oscar never left the house! Teri treated him as if he was her own. Teri sent us multiple pictures and text his entire stay! It was as if we had known her before! We wouldn't hesitate to leave Oscar in her care again and would refer her services. Thank you Teri for taking care of Oscat and giving us a piece of mind so that we could enjoy our family vacation!!

Teri has taken care of Prancer several times. We received pictures of Prancer during her stays. She comes home tired from activities but not stressed out.
Maggie's stay with Terri was great. They made her feel at home right away. They treated her like their own. She sent pictures to us and updates. I would highly recommend their home. We will sure use them next time we visit Padre Island.
we could not have had a better person to watch sam. we left him with complete strangers 1400 miles from home . they were so nice and happy to have sam. we were so pleased we wanted to give them a tip and they refused. if ever in south padre again would not think twice about leaving sam. thank you very much, gary from minnesota.
Teri and Percy are wonderful people. They took Cuddy in like he was their own. I highly recommend the!
We were pleased with the accommodation. Our dog was happy. Will stay again. Thanks.
Teri was just the nicest! I knew right away that our pups were in good hands and had no reservations about leaving them with her. She is highly responsive and also sent us updates over our long weekend. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to a friend and would certainly return to her.
This is the second time I left my dog with Teri. Upon drop off, my dog was immediately comfortable in her home and happy to see her again. He greeted her warmly. It is a relief to me to have a place I can take him without concern.
Teri was great with Rowdy including sending updates and photos.
Teri was great. I would definitely have her look after my dog again.
What a wonderful host! Teri and her family are so warm and I knew my dog was in great hands while my family was on vacation on south padre island.
She has a beautiful dog friendly home, in a great neighborhood and knows the area well, even volunteering some much appreciated restaurant recommendations.
Loved getting pics of my dog in great company with his fast friend, Gigolo, Teri's weenie dog.
Terri is awesome! She welcomed our dogs into her lovely home as if they were own. She sent many pictures and updates during their stay. She is very quick to respond to any requests or inquires. She was extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend Terri to anyone who is as picky as I am when it comes to "boarding" their loved ones. I look forward to booking another stay with her soon.
Terry did a great job taking care of our babies the weekend of our wedding!

When we found out our hotel wasn't pet friendly we were a little concerned because nobody other than family had ever taken care of our two chihuahuas, but Terry did a great job! We were able to relax knowing our dogs were in good hands when we dropped them off at Terry's house. It was also nice to receive photos of them looking comfortable on the couch!
Teri treated our Lily as if she was her own. I am always wary of leaving my little girl (Especially for a whole week), but we had such a great experience that we will not hesitate to leave her with Teri again. I highly recommend!
If you are ever going to South Padre Island and do not care to leave your dog behind, Teri is your answer. They live super close and convenient to your island activities in a very nice and well kept place. I really enjoyed and appreciated all the AM message updates, afternoon swim sessions and lounging in the AC pictures. You will not be disappointed. I rested comfortably knowing that our pet Dex was well cared for. We will be back if the need arises. Thank you Teri. I'll let y'all know when we are out in AC so you can come babysit. ;-)
Teri was excellent from the word Go . From her Extremely fast response to request ... to my dog Bella's stay .. Couldn't have asked for a better experience I have the pickiest dog in the world and I'm not sure she was ready to leave Teri's home
Would def use her again

When we got home from vacation, Sweet P had a smile on her face! We cannot express how pleased we are with the care and love shown to Sweet P. From the first time we walked in their hpuse, Sweet P felt at home. Great experience for all of us..not worrying about our animals made our trip so much more enjoyable.
Penny had a great visit with Teri! We got pictures throughout her stay and she was happy as can be when I picked her up. Thanks for accommodating us last minute!
I feel so fortunate to have found Teri through "DogVacay". She and her family were the perfect host for our dog while we were on vacation. The post and pictures I received helped me to rest assured that my dog was receiving the love, care, and attention he receives at home.
Thanks so much for the great care he received. We will definitely use this host to care for our dog in the future as well as recommend Teri to others.
Teri and her husband were fantastic with our dog. We went on our dream trip to Hawaii. Our dog Isaac has never been left with someone he did not know. After meeting Teri in her home and introducing Isaac to her home and her dog, I was greatly relieved. Isaac had excellent care while we were gone. The pictures and notes she sent me were wonderful and very comforting. Isaac had a great time with them. I would not hesitate to have Teri take care of him again.
