About Patrick & Christine

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your pup will be part of the family when staying with us! He or she will enjoy the company of our friendly Catahoula Leopard Dog, Lucy, and one of the resident humans will monitor them, day or night. Doggy guests will be able to take advantage of the many dog parks nearby (one is on-site) and long walks in neighborhood (or just lounging with us in the living room).

A typical day at the Southwest Dog Hotel includes walks or trips to the park each morning and before bed, and a longer walk after dinner around 6pm. Let us know if your pup has any special needs or you have any requests, we're happy to accommodate!

Looking forward to seeing you at the Southwest Dog Hotel!

Patrick and Christine were great. I had to travel last minute and they were both willing to take care of Draco for the day. 100% recommended. Thanks for looking after Draco.
Bowser loved his NYE staycation with Patrick and Christine. They were super easy to work with and kept me updating with pics during his stay.
My two small dogs have been fortunate enough to spend many vacations with Patrick and Christine and their sweet hound dog Lucy. Their thoughtfulness have made it possible for me to travel abroad extensively without worrying about the well being of my little companions. Thanks to all three Curtins!
My dog had a great visit with Patrick and Christine. They were both very welcoming and even let my dog sleep on their bed :)
Patrick and Christine are great! Sunday had a great time!
Patrick, Christine and their dog Lucy took care of our four year old frenchie Bow Wow during our two-week trip. We receive updates and pictures from time to time. Their apartment complex has a nice compact doggy park where our active pup can release his energy by playing with Lucy. If Bow wow could talk, we'd definitely think he enjoyed his stay. Thank you, Patrick, Christine and Lucy.
Patrick was very responsive, flexible and sent photos. He was very proud of their setup and ability to give Atticus a nice stay. I recommend!!!
Patrick and Christine were wonderful hosts for my dog Gator! This was my first time using DogVacay and Patrick and Christine made it so easy. Also, when bad weather hit and our flight got cancelled, they made it really easy to add on an extra night. I would highly recommend them and will be using them again!
Patrick and Christine took great care of our puppy Rory. They were very easy to communicate with before and during our trip. It is great that they have a little dog park right in their building. We would certainly use them again.
Frida always enjoys her visits with Patrick, Christine, and Lucy!!
Patrick & Christine were awesome. They took great care of our pup, communicated frequently, sent photos, were flexible, and all around amazing. Would definitely recommend them!
Our dog had a great time staying with Patrick and Christine!
Patrick and Christine were great! My husband handled pickup and drop off - I was told the dogs did want to leave Patrick and Christine's house to come home! It makes me happy that they felt comfortable there. Thanks Patrick and Christine!
Great as always. Whiskey always loves visiting Patrick and Christine!
Patrick and Christine took great care of Barley while she was with them. They were very responsive and flexible with my drop-off/pick-up time. Best of all, Barley came home completely exhausted from a weekend of play with the other dogs. I will definitely use them in the future.
Huxley came home happy and exhausted from playing with Lucy all week! Thank you so much!
Many thanks to Christine, Patrick and Lucy for again, taking such good care of Sierra.
Quick response to my request and easy to communicate with throughout my dog's stay. We also got delayed by some heavy holiday traffic and they were very understanding.
Oliver seemed to have fun at Patrick's house and they have a dog park in the building which is great!
Professional, accommodating, and convenient!
Patrick and Christine handled our dog who has some anxiety issues very well, which we really appreciate. When we picked him up he was happy and healthy which is all anyone can ask for. We would gladly let Enzo stay there again and are thankful for their patience with him.
Great overall experience! Got updates and the hosts were very responsive. And it was great to know our pup Whiskey was able to have a playpal with Lucy. Will absoutely book with them again in the future.
I was able to take an extended trip to Central Asia because Patrick and Christine cared for my two little dogs while I was away. They sent thoughtful photos when possible (I was in Central Asia with poor internet) and my pups had a great time hanging out with their dog. I returned to two very healthy, happy little dogs, thanks to Pat and Christine.
Sierra was returned healthy and happy. The doggy pictures, while we were gone definitely reassured me of the great care she was receiving. It was apparent that Sierra enjoyed her time with Lucy, Patrick and Christine. We intend to use them for future vacations, when Sierra is unable to join us.
Scout loves staying with Patrick and Christine! She's stayed with them twice now and she comes home like she's had a better vacation than ME! Would highly recommend them. They are the best- and they always send me the funniest photos of her too. Thank you both for taking care of my baby!!
Patrick and Christine took great care of my boy. He loved playing with Lucy and the other dogs in the on-site dog park. A very dog-friendly home!
Thank you so much Patrick for caring for Girmit over the past 4 days and sending us updates and pics!
Teddy had a great time. It was helpful for our shy rescue pup to be in a home with another dog. Patrick and Christine were helpful with updates on how Teddy was doing. This was our first time leaving our dog and they took great care of him. Thanks!
Patrick and Christine graciously kept my dogs an extra night beyond their reservation when my return flight was delayed by many hours.
Patrick and Christine took excellent care of my 2 small dogs and readily agreed to an unplanned extra night and day when my plane was grounded by mechanical problems on the homeward leg. It was wonderful to know my dogs were safe and cared for while I fumed at the airport in Chicago!
Sorry it took so long to post a review, but Missy had a great time. Patrick kept in touch throughout Missy's stay and was flexible with pick-up and drop-off times.
I highly recommend Patrick and Christine! They took great care of my beagle mix Frida, whom I recently adopted and I'm still getting to know. They kept me updated with cute photos of her playing with their awesome dog Lucy! Frida came home relaxed and happy, and I think she had as great a vacation as I did!
Very easy to schedule with and our dog, Bruce, seemed like he had a great time. Will book with them again soon.
Oatie seemed to have a good time at Patrick and Christine's place. He played a lot with Lucy. When we picked him up he seemed happy and relaxed.
They were very flexible, and even sent me a picture of Niko having fun at their house. Niko was obviously quite happy and enjoyed having a dog to hang with while I was away.
We were very grateful to be able to book with Patrick and Christine the day before our trip. Patrick was very courteous, professional and accommodating. Thank you for the great care! We'd definitely use them again.
Although I only requested a daycare visit, Patrick cheerfully provided an advance meet and greet for me and our dogs, which I appreciated. He took fine care of my two little dogs and I would be delighted to have them visit again!
Scout stayed with Patrick and Christine this past weekend, and I couldn't be happier they were able to keep her. The photo updates were great- I could tell Scout was relaxed and made herself right at home.

When I dropped Scout off on Thursday morning, I let Patrick know we were going to be driving from Nashville to DC (an exhausting 11-hour car trip), and I wasn't sure what time we'd be home. I asked if he wouldn't mind dropping Scout off at our place on Sunday afternoon, since we only live about a 10 minute walk away, and he said he was happy to do so. I was so appreciative of him agreeing to do that for us, because the last thing I wanted to do was to keep them waiting on a Sunday night.

When we got home, Scout was very happy to see us, but she was extremely calm and seemed rested. This was such a relief for me because whenever I take her to places like PetSmart to board overnight, she comes home agitated and downright exhausted, which stresses me out and makes me feel guilty for leaving her. Not the case this weekend- I can tell that Patrick and Christine took great care of Scout while I was gone, giving her plenty of attention and playtime, just like she has at home.

I cannot thank Patrick, Christine and Lucy enough for their hospitality for Scout while we were out of town. I hope Scout can come back soon!
Patrick and Christine are great! They took excellent care of my puppy and he returned in great health and happy spirits. Their home is perfect for this kind of thing, they have a dog park on the premises. Also, they kept in contact with me while I was away sending me frequent pictures and updates! I am grateful to have found them through dogvacay they go above and beyond! I would use their services again. I enthusiastically recommend them to everyone!
Layla took to Patrick very well, and she is usually skittish around men. She seemed to feel at ease when I dropped her off. When I picked her up she was in good spirits for an old girl.
We had adopted our dog, Atlas, only three weeks before having to leave him for a two-week trip overseas. In fact, Atlas didn't even know his name yet! Patrick was great and took it all in stride and made us feel like Atlas was in good hands. He is very responsible and has a natural sense for dogs.

Atlas and Patrick's dog, Lucy, immediately hit it off and started playing the moment they met. Lucy is a very sweet dog. It was fun receiving photos of the two of them playing while we were away.

The apartment building where they live is extremely dog friendly and even has an enclosed mini dog park on premises!

I'm sure Atlas was bummed to leave his fun DogVacay life when we returned. I recommend Patrick and will definitely contact him again.
