About Tera & Josh

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let's face it - leaving our pets in the care of others can be stressful and full of anxiety. It can also be stressful on our pets as well. This is why we promise to provide your pet a safe and secure environment that is filled with care, love, and fun. Your pet will be loved and cared for as if he or she was our own.

From walks and stuffed kongs to exploring the secure fully-fenced backyard, your dog will feel right at home in our house. Whether your dog would prefer to sleep on our bed, on the couch, on a dog bed - we are open to what will make your dog the most comfortable. For those super intelligent dogs, we also have some fun smart dog toys to keep them busy - these are also great for pups and highly energetic dogs as mental stimulation is important to them. During your pet's stay with us, we will provide updates and photos to you so that you can keep updated on what your pet did each day.

Our family consists of 2 adults and 1 child. Our son has been raised in animal rescue and is used to dogs and cats coming and going as we foster animals, transport them, etc. We have 2 senior dogs and 2 senior cats (all between the ages of 15-17) and we do have a means of separating them from your pet if needed and/or preferred.

We have volunteered in animal rescue for many years and have experience with all ages and breeds. We have typically adopted seniors and special needs pets, so we have a lot of experience with that group. Having adopted many seniors and special needs pets, we have also worked with a variety of medical issues (dementia, incontinence, back issues, surgery recovery, allergies, eye issues, you name it!). I currently work from home and have plenty of time to spend with furry companions during the day.

We want you to feel 100% confident in your decision to leave your pets with us. Please stop by for a meet and greet as we'd love to get to know you and your furry companion(s)! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough good things about Tera & Josh. They were great with my Buddy and they sent pictures, videos, and updates that showed how much fun my dog was having! I would not hesitate to use them again and I highly recommend them.

Tera and Josh were just perfect with taking care of Ian while I attended a conference in Lincoln.

I stopped by on Sunday afternoon so they could meet Ian and Ian could meet them - then dropped Ian off on Monday Morning and picked him back up Monday evening - same schedule for Tuesday

Tera and Josh were perfect - their house is is about a 20 minute drive to downtown Lincoln

Tera and Josh were amazing! This was the first time my dog was left with someone that wasn't family or a friend. Not only did they make my dog feel comfortable but me as well. I received updates daily including pictures and videos. I would highly recommend them!

I can't say enough about how wonderful they were. Not only did I receive daily updates, when my airline delayed me massively, they were willing to keep another day taking some of the stress off me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
My dog and I absolutely LOVE Tera and Josh! They do a fantastic job of keeping my very active border collie entertained. And she always comes home tired (which is a good thing)! I love that she does not have to be in a kennel and gets lots of human attention!!!

Excellent
Love the pictures
They were detailed and prompt with communication. We had never used a service like this before but they were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We got pictures and daily updates during our vacation. Our dogs loved them and we will definitely be using them again!

Marlow has been going to Tera and Josh's weekly for doggie daycare and it has been the best experience for Marlow! Tera and Josh keep her active all day, either playing with other dogs, going on walks, or by giving lots of belly rubs. Tera and Josh are true dog lovers, and treat their doggie guests like their own. Every day Marlow is at daycare, I get updates with pictures with a run down of the fun they had that day. I would recommend them to anyone and I don't think you could find a better place to leave your pups.

Tera & Josh are awesome!! Leaving my fur baby is never easy and this was our first time using Dog Vacay, so I was a little nervous! Every other review is spot on! The daily pictures and updates helped to put our minds at ease & allowed us to have a good time knowing she was in such great hands! We will definitely be booking again!

Mya and I love Tera!! :-) I just love the pictures and messages on how Mya is doing throughout the day! Makes my day so much better knowing she's doing good.
We seldom leave our pups as I just worry too much..we heard about dog vaca and Tera from our sons gf who's co-worker leaves his pup with Tera and Josh..we booked a date for our pup, Tucker and honestly couldn't have had a better experience!! From booking to pick up was amazingly smooth...Tera even took time out of her busy day to send pics and updates of Tucker and sent even more pics after we had picked him up....Tucker had a great time and we had a relaxing day and VERY tired boy at the end of the day...Tera and Josh are PAWSOME and our fur babies will definitely be visiting again!!

Barry loves spending time with Tera and Josh. I've been bringing him for daycare once a week while I'm at work, and it's a struggle for me to convince him to leave when I arrive to pick him up! I'm pretty picky about who I select to care for my pup, but I have no reservations whatsoever about leaving him in their capable hands.

They really give him everything you could hope for--plenty of exercise and mental stimulation, tons of cuddles and belly rubs, a great deal of attention, opportunities to play with other dogs, and even leashed trips outside consistent with our housebreaking routine at home. I would gladly recommend them to anyone in need of daycare or boarding.

Tera and Josh did the most amazing job watching Lincoln. Lincoln is about as high energy as they come and they showed him nothing but love and LOTS of attention. They walked or ran with Lincoln over 23 miles in one weekend! They also have an awesome backyard for the dogs to play in. Tera sends the most amazing updates everyday. They have years of experience working with foster dogs and dogs of their own. They introduced Lincoln to smart toys which he absolutely loves and it really has helped with his energy. I can't recommend Tera and Josh enough! Lincoln can't wait for his next visit at their doggy paradise.

We couldn't be more pleased with our boxer's stay with Tera. He has separation anxiety, and because he does, so do I! Tera understood and did everything to help him de-stress. Lots of affection and exercise as well as other dogs to play with made him a very happy and tired boy. As for me, her frequent updates along with pictures enabled me to relax and enjoy the weekend! By his second and third visits, he was leaping out of the car to get inside! If there were more stars I'd give more.

Our fur baby Aspen LOVED her stay at Tera's! So much that we have already booked her next visit. Tera and her husband are very professional and send updates everyday. I am so glad I found someone I trust to care for our dog. She is the best!
Willow and Raven's stay with Tera was exceptional. This is the 1st time we have used this service and it will be the only service we EVER use. The Girls had a fantastic time, we were a bit concerned while away if they would want to go home with us, they did but I believe the girls won't mind having a vacation with Tera when we travel again. I can not say enough about how pleased we are with the care the girls received while in Tera and her family's care. If anyone is questioning the service provided my husband and I give it 5 STARS.....Walks, play time, treats, and love are all included with Tera!!!

Tera and Josh were great. Shilo can be a handful, but she came home happy! Other dogs to play with and they even took her for a walk. I will definitely book with Tera again!
After many years of not feeling comfortable leaving my 15 year old dog anywhere .... We decided to take a look. I found Tera and her husband within minutes of looking on the Dogvacay. They had all the right background - Older dogs, big yard and most of all kind hearts.

After our first meeting all my fears melted away. I knew I could trust them and I knew they would love my girls like we do!

We were gone 3 days and the stay was beyond perfect! The texting updates had me laughing out loud but most of all I could clearly see that my dogs were happy.

This experience couldn't have been more perfect. Tera and her husband are angels and took such great care of my pets - even fork feeding one of them! To top it off .... My son didn't want to leave their house! They are the perfect family to care for my dogs! They went above and beyond to win the trust and love from my whole family!

Tera and her husband were FANTASTIC!! I got the cutest little update every morning with tons of pictures and cute little captions to go with each one, which made me feel so much better when I was gone! I can't thank them enough for welcoming Olive in as their own and can't wait for our next trip back!

I cannot give high enough praise to Tera and her family for watching our two dogs for a week. It was so nice to know our dogs were being cared for by Tera as if they were her own. She let our senior dog sleep with her, since that's what he was used to, and she helped us continue to work on potty training the puppy.We received daily pictures and updates written from the dog's point of view! So cute!! There a minor health issue that came up, and Tera was so thorough! She definitely put our minds at ease. Not only will we call Tera again, but I'll recommend her to anyone I know. I can't thank her enough for making our vacation a huge success because we weren't worried about our dogs! Absolutely the best care!!

Tera gave so much personal attention to our big high-energy dog -- walks, indoor playtime, outdoor playtime, special toys for mental training. And also snuggle time. It was like the best summer camp ever -- for dogs.

We were gone over the 4th of July when neighbors put out lots of big fireworks on the streets. It's a hard time for our dog even at home. Tera and family gave our dog extra exercise in the morning and daytime and a safe, quiet place to be in the evening when the explosions were the worst.

Every day, Tera shared long letters and photos of our dog's activities and joyful times. It was such a blessing to see our dog with a big, big smile on her face - even though we were far away.

I would most highly recommend Tera and family for any size dog. They are gifted caregivers who love each dog for its own personality and being. Thank you!

We absolutely loved Tera and Josh. They were amazing with our dogs, and their daily updates with pictures were hilarious! She captured the essence of my goofball pups. Really made me feel like my pups were at home with them and getting so much more attention than they would in a kennel. My dogs were happy and not stressed at all when I picked them up and normally they would be after being kenneled for a week. They were very knowledgeable and comfortable handling my 70-80lb dogs and I will go back every time I leave town!

Tera ia awesome! We LOVED the daily updates & pictures with humorous stories from our dogs' perspective. We thought that was great! She asked questions about everything, which we liked and we were soooooo comfortable with leaving our girls with her. We also like that she has experience with Shiba's and that she is home pretty much the entire time so they don't have to be in a cage, like a kennel. We knew our dogs were going to be well taken care of by the love they show for their pets.
