Our dog Blue and our whole family had a great experience with Paul. I would definitely use him again without hesitation. I have already recommended him to other friends. We trust him completely.
We booked a last minute reservation and Paul was quick to accommodate. The location was beautiful and its obvious Paul is very experienced with dogs. Our dog came home happy and showed no signs of stress. All around good experience and we would definitely recommend his service and will be using him again.

Paul was great. He was great with the dogs, very nice, easy going, polite.
Paul took great care of our dog, Ben. Ben is shy but he warned right up to Paul. Paul sent us pictures and updates, and even picked up and dropped off. We highly recommend him!
Paul was easy to work with regarding pick up and drop off. He is a very pleasant person and his dog Mayse was a perfect match for our Ruby. (both female Labs) She was in good hands for an overnight stay.
They sent me pictures every day and my pup came home content, happy, and relaxed. Will definitely use again!
Paul is a great guy and an extremely competent dog handler. From start to finish, it was a pleasant experience working with him. He offers personalized boarding at his place, yet was also willing and enthusiastic about coming to our place. He was flexible, communicative and personable along with being a professional dog trainer, which our two boys Jake and Max benefited greatly from.
He went over and above in working with a particular medical condition with daily treating and even offering advice. We were very pleased, will work with Paul again and highly recommend him.

Paul was wonderful with our 5-month old lab puppy. The set-up at his place is a dog wonderland, and Paul is a remarkable dog handler. I highly recommend Paul and will make reservations with him in the future. Cheers!
Paul was great. My dog wasn't feeling well and it was nice to know she was in good hands while we were gone! Thanks Paul! Hopefully next time she can go swimming with you!
Paul was awesome!!! We left Sully with him for 4 days, and Paul was great about sending photos, videos, along with updates. Sully had a great time, and everything went perfectly.
Paul M was my first DogVacay sitter and I selected him because his site welcomed older dogs, and after a meet and greet, I really liked his very dog-friendly indoor and outdoor house situation, which had few (maybe none!) steps or stairs, since my girl, Roo, is 11 1/2 and has arthritis in her back legs, although still loves walks and play. After using the same dog sitter for years, who could no longer board dogs, I was hesitant to leave her with a stranger, but right away Paul sent photos and comments that showed Roo looking totally comfortable and hanging out with other dog guests, so that eased any discomfort I had. I was away 2 weeks, and when I returned Roo was happy and in great spirits, so I felt she'd been well taken care of. Paul seems definitely canine savvy, so I think he provides a good dog vacay experience.

Our experience with Paul was excellent. Our dog, Bunny, spent the day at his house while we were out wine tasting in Sonoma. She was well taken care of and the house had lots of room for her to run around. The house is on the bay so she was able to get into the water and play. Paul even sent us photos during the day so we could see what she was up to. It was great. I had never used DogVacay before so the photos were reassuring. I can highly recommend Paul!
