About Brett

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a beautiful property and I am the happiest when I am watching my pups and their friends run and play, you know just being dogs. We have 5000 square feet of grass and covered outdoor area complete with cooling mist and ceiling fans. They can also hang out inside in the ac and take a nap. If they don't stay here Ill pick them up for a walk or a trip to your local dog park. I will treat your pup like one of my own. I will happily take care of any special diets or medications they may need. I love all breeds just as long as dog friendly.

We went on vacations for 2 weeks and Brett and his wife took such good care of our dog Blue. We got updates and pictures while away. We will use Brett services again next time we need a dog sitter as we are more than happy and pleased .
Great dog sitter my dog enjoyed it and Brett is super nice!
The dog house was amazing for our Draco!!! He has come back very well behaved and way more social which was way more than we asked for with Brett. He sent pictures regularly and stayed in communication with us throughout his stay at the dog house. We were moving into a new house and our closing date change 4 or 5 times. Brett was helpful in extending Draco's stay 2 times. We will keep the dog house in mind for the future as Brett was great with Draco and shows a genuine love for the dogs he pet sits...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Life saver! We had to take our Maltese Toby with us on a trip, and the hotel we stayed was not pet friendly. Made the reservation on last minute with DogVacay and requested their assistance to keep him overnight. Brett immediately responded to my request and sent me his information so that I would call him and schedule bringing Toby over. He invited us in to check out how Toby would be in great hands over his stay. Lots of happy dogs welcomed us in as well as his wife. We were happy to have had the opportunity of leaving Toby in great pet inviroment to be taken care of. Thank you so much Brett!!!

Brett was pleasant from the moment we first spoke on the phone. He even sent me pictures of my pup while I was away, when I sent him a message to see how she was doing. All in all it was a wonderful experience. The only negative was that she developed some kind of rash all over her abdomen. There were other dogs so naturally there was a risk of her contracting something. I don't blame Brett for that. He was awesome & I highly recommend. Thanks for everything! :)

Brett was very accommodating with our last minute reservation. Good and fast communication. Clean location. Brett kept us updated with pictures and messages daily. Chowder was happy and tired when he came home. Thank you Brett!
Brett & his wife were very nice. Brandi was initially nervous but seemed to settle in well. It would have been helpful to know that someone in the household smoked. That wasn't a huge issue for us but it might be for some. We didn't see anyone smoking, but she did smell like cigarettes when we picked her up.

The only problem we had was that Brandi came back with a cough, which lasted for a couple of weeks. It did clear up without a vet visit though.

A Pawsome experience from beginning to end!
Brett and his wife offer knowledge, experience, and love for dogs. They took care of our dog Bella and her two four months old puppies for three days while we went on vacation. Brett always answered my messages in a timely and professional matter. Our dogs are back home content and unstressed.
Thank you!!!

Brett and his wife are very friendly and work very well with my hectic schedule. They are open for early drop off and late pick ups. My dog has separation anxiety and thunder issues. They happily stay by my dogs side through out the whole storm. They are a perfect fit for me and my Buddy.

Friendly, clean, safe
We were in town filming for our documentary and quickly found out we needed a place for our boy Lucky dog to stay. It was so hot and miserable out and we knew it had to be a special place. Lucky is a rescue and had never been kenneled. He can also be very needy and loves to stay close to us. He literally follows us everywhere. We were nervous about leaving him with just anyone.

When we read Brett's profile and saw his reviews, we decided to send him a message to find out the specifics of his lodging.

Brett called me within 5 minutes of sending the message. He was very detailed in the questions he asked. That was a clue to us that he was very knowledgable and cared tremendously for dogs. We immediately booked with him.

When we got to his house, he met us outside and took Lucky for a walk with one of his dogs. Brett knew exactly what he was doing.

While he was walking Lucky, his wife Adriana came out and introduced herself. She brought us into the house and gave us a tour. We met her other dogs as well as other dogs who were on "Dog Vacay" with them. Their house was very clean and accommodating for all the dogs.

Brett sent pictures and updates daily. He was very responsive and available. He even said thank you to us for allowing him to take care of him.

When we picked up Lucky, he was so happy and for the past few days since we picked him up, he has been relaxed and content.

We plan on visiting South Florida often for filming and friends. We feel confident and grateful for having met Brett and Adriana. Lucky will definitely be visiting "The Dog House" again!

We had a wonderful experience with Brett and his sweet wife. We felt that our dog , Lucky had a wonderful experience and I have already recommended Brett to several of my friends. We had a worry free vacation knowing our dog was in good hands.
Brett was wonderful. Our dog is difficult to work with yet Brett was very understanding and willing to help us on shot notice. We will be using him agian.
As soon as we met Brett we could tell that he was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about dogs. This is a house where dogs are welcome and part of the family. Our pup acclimated to the environment very quickly and most importantly, he returned to us with the same happy personality and intact confidence. We won't hesitate to use Brett's services again.

I want to give 10 STARS!!!! HIRE HIM!!!

I would recommend Brett to ANYONE who will listen! They are the BEST!!!!

Brett's house is truly DOG PARADISE!!!!!

I'm one of those pet parents that wants the ABSOLUTE best for my little girl. I didn't want her in a crate or cage.

I found Dog Vacay on line after the Vet's office said that she would indeed be in a cage for more than 12 hours a day - she usually stays with my best friend - but she too was going to be on vacation. We were going to be away for 10 days!

Brett invited Pepper Mint and me to his home to introduce his family beforehand. We met the entire crew, ALL the dogs and his adorable wife Adrianna and their son Christian.

I STILL don't know how they keep the house so clean - I need THAT secret :-)

This is DEFINITELY Pepper Mint's new vacation home WHENEVER we have to go out of town. Like this coming weekend!

Gigi had an amazing weekend and Brett and Adriana's place. When we picked her up she was having fun with other dogs and looked like she had a great time. She was "spoiled" to the max. Definitely, Gigi found in Brett's and Adriana's house, her second home.

My dog loved this place!! I highly recommend.
Brett and his son Chris took very good care of Sadie, would definitely use him again when in the area! A big kudos as we left Sadie's training collar and remote which they mailed off right away and I got it 2 days later.
Brett and his wife are so amazing. This was the first time leaving our 6 month old pup and we were very hesitant. After reading Brett's reviews, we decided it was a perfect fit. He has a very large backyard, equipped with sofas for the dogs and a small overground pool for them as well. They responded very quickly to all our messages and were quick to send pictures while we were away. We will definitely be using them again!! Thank you!!

Very flexible with pick-up and drop-off times.
Brett and his wife were absolutely awesome! I felt confident that Franklin was in good hands. He's had some aggressiveness issues and Brett knew just how to handle him. I would highly recommend Brett and if he lived closer to me, I would use him all the time! I can't even put into words how happy I was with Franklin's care. Brett is definitely a dog guy, he speaks their language!

Brett was awesome, he was very knowledgeable about dogs and attentive. I felt very comfortable leaving my precious Diva. She responded very well to him. His wife is great, overall they too great care of my big bear.
I can't begin to express the amount of gratitude that I have for Brett and his wife Adriana. They are amazing, loving, caring animal lovers and treated my baby like their own! With area to roam and take naps my baby Gladys very much enjoyed her stay. Brett has an amazing dog sense and is truly gifted with pets. The other dogs there are friendly and welcoming.This is a place you can trust to leave your pet and know they are welcome as family. Brett is my go to guy whenever I have vacation or anything else. Thank you!

After our regular dog-sitter wasn't able to take care of Marvel we were very happy to find Brett and his wife, they are a wonderful people that will take care of your dog like he is their own. They offer last minute booking and flexible hours for drop off and pick up, which worked out great in our situation. Brett sent us photo updates on how Marvel was doing, and seeing him having fun made us feel better about leaving him with a new people. We are happy to have found them. Definitely will stay with them again.

Olive had a great stay! Brett was great about sending pics of Olive having fun and relaxing. It definitely put me at ease and made me feel less guilty for having to leave her behind.
Brett has his own dogs as well so Olive had lots of friends to run around with in the fenced-in backyard that overlooks a lake.
Brett and his wife are definite dog lovers! Thanks guys for taking good care of our pup!!

Brett was an awesome choice to watch our pup while we were out of town. He had plenty of space for our dog to play and even sent us photos periodically to show how our dog was doing.

Galen looked great and was super happy when we picked him up.

We will definitely have Brett as our first choice for next time! Thanks, Brett! :)

Brett was absolutely wonderful. We always worry about leaving our two PWD's with a stranger but both dogs took to Brett immediately. He has a perfect yard for them to play in, he had other well mannered dogs to play with and Brett himself took the time to pet and talk with our girls. I can always tell if the girls like their host and they certainly liked Brett. We will use him again for sure.

Brett was available last minute and was very flexible in length of stay, pick up, and drop off times. Peggy stayed for two weeks. She's a shy and quiet dog, very sensitive. I picked her up and she quickly settled back into her routine as though she had been very happy during her stay. He gave her a fresh bath for pick up. I was very glad to leave Peggy with him.

Brett was great!! Big open yard for the dogs to play in. Very knowledgable and great with my dog. I will definitely be using him again!
I had a last minute overnight trip and didn't want to board the the vet's office. Came across Dog Vacay and Brett's profile. I chose him because of the pics and my dog had indoor/outdoor options. Brett responded immediately to my request and was available for any questions. He took a video of Georgie playing with the other dogs. I would definitely suggest using his service to anyone needing a home away from home for your pet.
Thanks again Brett.

Brett and his wife were great! They have a big home with a big yard. We left our two small dogs with them for the day. Their dogs were super friendly. And Brett posted pictures letting us know that they were being loved. I'd definitely go with Brett again!
