About Brian & Vickie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
T-Bone's Travel Resort is a comfortable safe home for your pets to enjoy while you are away.

We have over 20 years’ experience of watching pets and have been dog owners all our lives. I am a doctoral student and I teach on-line classes, which is ideal to accommodate most requests, as my schedule is flexible.

We approach home dog boarding a little differently than traditional boarding facilities (e.g. Veterinary Clinic, kennel). Instead of using dog kennels, your pet is free to enjoy our home and interact with our dogs and family for the entire stay. We find caring for pets in our home a perfect solution for people who want to board their dogs but prefer a home environment where their dog(s) will feel secure and comfortable.

We have 4 wonderful small dogs who love having friends over. We will treat your pet like part of the family, giving them the attention and love they deserve.

We accept small and medium size dogs in our home. We do consider larger dogs; however, we normally care for large dogs (>40 pounds) in their owner’s home.

Let us know your pet's needs and we will be happy to accommodate your request.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you and your dog(s).

**Note: Discounts available for 2 or more dogs and extended stays.

Our Scotty Freya loved her weeks stay with Brian and Vickie. Vickie sent us pictures every day and she always looked so happy and playful. She seemed to love playing with Scruffy and the other little dogs. Having her with Vickie made us feel so much more comfortable about leaving her for a whole week. I truly think she enjoyed her little vacation at Vickie and Brian's as much as we enjoyed our time in St. Kitts!

she is very friendly dog ​​Rocky was my son during the day and she kept me imformando by text message like this rocky it took beautiful photos thank you very much.
This was the first time we used Vicki and Brian for our 2 Doodles. They were wonderful with our Girls and we will definitely be using them anytime we go out of town again. Thanks for giving us the ability to travel and still feel guilt free for leaving our girls home in such good hands!! ❤️❤️

Thank you Brian & Vickie for taking such good care of our Rocco. And great communication with us. He loves his new cut!
They are amazing. My dogs love going on vacation to their house. They are really kind, friendly and caring. I recommend them 100%. They are the best hosts my babies have ever had. Well done guys.
Vickie provided our dog with a great experience. She gave our girl lots of love and affection. Kept up with her daily walking routine and meds. We really appreciated that Vickie kept us posted with regular text messages and pictures. We will always come back to Vickie whenever we go out of town.

Brian and Vickie (B&V) are two fantastic individuals with a genuine love for dogs. They accepted our pups, Burfee and Kaju, with open arms and treated them like family. We first left them for a night's stay as a test run before booking for a couple of weeks in June. Vickie regularly sent us updates with pictures of Burfee and Kaju. We could tell that both Burfee and Kaju enjoyed their stay from the fact that both lay down asking for a belly rub from Vickie as we were chatting with them when we came to pick them up. Our pups have definitely found a second home where they will be loved and treated like a family member just like in our home. I highly recommend B&V for your pets boarding needs. Bonus - B&V are fun to talk to and very self-aware about the world and other matters under the sun. We were pleasantly surprised when we found a 'Thank You' greeting card with a photo print out of our dogs along with their dogs taken on one of their daily walks. You can't beat that, can you? Thanks B&V for a wonderful experience. We'll be back soon...

Molly always has a good time with Vicki. Vicki is quick to respond to any texts.
Wonderful caretaker, will definitely use again!!!
I recently moved to Tampa and this was my first time using a pet sitting service -- and it was great! Vickie came over a few days beforehand to meet the dogs and from the beginning, I knew she would be a trustworthy person to take care of my pups! I was out of town for 3 days and 2 nights, during which Vickie took GREAT care of my two dogs!

My dogs are generally easy going - they just need someone to be around to give them treats and pets - so I wasn't too worried...but I've never left them with strangers before so I was nervous! Vickie's kind and genuine personality put me at ease the minute I met her.

I plan to have her watch my dogs in the future and would most certainly recommend her to anyone! From the daily updates (complete with adorable photos of my pups) to the sweet thank you card she left me, she was the best!

Very satisfied, will definitely use again.
Took my puppy in short notice. Vicky was very easy to communicate with and set drop off and pick up time with. Sent me pictures of my puppy. Even let her sleep in bed with her. Puppies aren't always easiest to take care of but she took care of my lil bundle of energy very well.

Vickie was great! I had a last minute need for someone to stay with my 2 dogs and she answered my cry for help and came to meet me and get instructions right away. The dogs took to her right away and I felt okay for the first time since finding out I needed someone. When I got home everything looked good and she even made our bed for us! The dogs were happy. I would definitely use her again if I need to have someone stay.

It was the first time I left my 2 puppies. Brian & Vickie invited us for a meet and greet before we can make a decision. We automatically feel confident when we met both of them. You can tell they are fog lovers and we knew our puppies will be well taken care of. Vickie sent me a mini report everyday along with pictures which I think is very nice. I will definitely have them to take care of our dogs when needed. Actually, we already schedule another stay with them.

Vickie was superb. She was attentive to my special pet as if it were her own. She dumped the litter daily and the floor around was swept clean. She checked the auto feeder and refreshed the water daily. She even had to dispose of a dead frog in the bowl. She is a God send and I will use her again. I feel extremely blessed with her accommodating my schedule and doing a pre-meeting interview per se. You can trust her in the house and noting was disturbed. She gave updates and took photos to assure me that my special baby was being taken cared of each and every day. She's the best!!

The experience was wonderful for Zoey. Vickie sent me updates and pics everyday.

I had only had Zoey 3 weeks before having to leave town and I was concerned about her adapting to new situation with a sitter. She was 4 month old rescue dog who was housed in shelter in GA and then rescued by Tampa SPCA and then to me. Zoey fit right in with Brian and Vickie's dog kids and didn't miss a beat. Brian and Vickie have a great home for dogs and provide great care.

So kind and caring. Perfect place to leave our elder loved one.
Brian and Vickie were both very warm and loving towards our Pup Pebbles and we felt very comfortable with them and their pups. Pebbles have stayed with them twice now and we will be using them again in the future!
This was a wonderful experience for us and our 2 dogs. Brian and Vickie are true dog lovers and our dogs had a great time playing with their dogs. Their yard, pool area and doggie door made for a wonderful environment. We will use them every time we go away if we can!

Vickie is a kind and gentle person who loves dogs. She is very sensitive to the needs of aging Kayla.
We just moved to the Tampa area a few weeks ago and had to find a really good home right away for our precious Pebbles since we were going on a 10 day vacation. We were very lucky to find Brian and Vickie and felt really good when they gave Pebbles a warm welcome during our meet-n-greet. They are very nice couple, very accommodating and you can just tell that they love dogs. They provided updates and sent us pictures too. We will definitely use Brian and Vickie again and we strongly recommended them to anyone needing a nice place for a doggie vacay!!!

Wonderful caring environment for our aging Kayla. Great experience for all of us.
Brian and Vickie are wonderful hosts! I almost hated to take Bella away. She had such a good time with their little dogs!
Vickie and Brian were wonderful. Maxwell appeared to have enjoyed himself. He came back less stressed than he was when he was boarded. Vickie and Brian were friendly and flexible, when I had a mini emergency.
Thank you both for taking care of my baby boy.

I picked up my dogs yesterday and they seemed like they had a great time! One of my dogs didn't even greet me when I picked them up, he just kept playing when I walked in the door lol. It's so nice to find a place where I know my dogs are treated like part of a family instead of locked in a crate all day like at a boarding facility. Oh and Vicke even worked with me on the price since i have two dogs so it was way cheaper than a boarding facility. I felt comfortable on my vacation and wasn't worried about my dogs so I would definitely use them again on my next vacation. Thank you guys again :)

I think Bruiser enjoyed his vacation immensely! Being an only dog, he loved playing with his 2 new little furry friends. He was all played out when we got him home. It was obvious the moment we arrived at their home that Vickie and Brian were animal lovers.
Bruiser has had a sensitive digestive tract after visits with other sitters and kennels in SC, but he arrived home healthy.
Thank you, Vickie and Brian

They were great! They were nice enough to accomodate Nugs on short notice and updated me with pictures throughout my weekend away. Nugs loved being around other dogs and they had the patience to deal with my hyper puppy. Will definitely use them again.
