I know they say nothing in life is perfect however, Gilda and Lydia are THE PERFECT DOG SITTER EVER!!! Used dog vacay for the first time and I'm so happy and lucky to have found them. I have a blue French bulldog and I was worried about leaving my dog at someone's house while I went away for school work. I am very picky when it comes to everything, location, security, kindness,loving , Caring, someone I could trust with a dog like mine. I was looking for someone that would show the attention I give my baby while I was away. Well this is for sure the perfect, the most best dog sitter for our fluffy friends. They are both so kind and sweet from the start. After I drop mooshi off, I received a picture of him with her dog getting perfectly along. Then I got pictures and videos of him playing through out the day without me even having to ask, it was great seeing them. I even got one at night after he played all day. The coolest thing I noticed is that mooshi got back extra gooshy, more loving so cuddly. Nothing compared to D.O.G.S Miami where he had stayed before. I will definitely be needing them again, I stopped looking for dog sitter after I found them, we found new friends:)
I must say that bringing my girls to vacation at Gilda & Lydia's was the best thing I could have done. Not only could I enjoy my vacation knowing that they were taken great care, but it put my mind at ease knowing they were enjoying and having fun while being professionally taken care of and supervised. G&L are wonderful people, they have a beautiful pet friendly home where the dogs can run free both indoors& out and really showed love to my girls. I would recommend them highly and now look forward to my next trip knowing I have a safe great place to leave my dogs when I'm gone.
We love love love Gilda & Lydia! Can never say enough great things about them! We know Onyx is in amazing hands when he is with them. It is such a weight off the shoulders to feel confident in those we allow our baby to stay with. We highly recommend!
Gilda and Lydia are great! Very responsive and accommodating. Henry loves staying there and comes home tired but happy.
Georgia had a wonderful stay with Gilda and Lydia. From the moment I met them I was put at ease -- they have a lovely yard and a house with all of the comforts a pup needs. Communication was great -- complete with photos. And it was a great relief knowing that Georgia was cared for while I was away -- and now knowing this I can take my business trips with a sense of calm. She misses her new humans a doggie friends already!
Much thanks to Gilda and Lydia! There is no doubt I will use them again and recommend them highly!!
I was so hesitant to leave my 5 month old puppy with someone I didn't know until I went for a visit. As soon as I walked in to Gilda and Lydia's home I was certain Suede would be in good hands. Their home is clean and warm and Suede immediately loved Gilda and Lydia. They have a secure backyard that even I want to play in.

I got pictures and I could see my pup was having a ball. I even got a picture of him sleeping on Gilda's lap. Suede has found his home away from home.

Thank you Gilda and Lydia for loving my boy so much
Thanks Gilda and Lydia for taking such good care of Brian. He loves coming to your home and comes back happy and frankly, I think he doesn't miss me when he's at your place! Love the photos you send and I can see that he is happy and well taken care of.
Very nice couple that actually love dogs. They are also extremely kind and accommodating. Thank you!
Thankful for Gilda and Lydia who always show Onyx so much love and attention. He adores them and gets pumped up when we mention he is going to their house. They always take great care of him. :)
my dog loves his tias, gilda and lydia. always comes home happy and healthy!
Great stay for Onyx, as always with Gilda and Lydia! They are just simply amazing!! Can't say enough great things about these ladies. So passionate about dogs and their love for them is just undeniable. Very blessed to have them to watch over our boy while we are traveling.
This was our longest trip away from our boy. We missed him so much, however, Gilda and Lydia kept us updated with photos and videos. They are so attentive and sweet. It helped knowing he was well taken care of which allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding and honeymoon. :). Couldn't have found a better home for Onyx to stay while we are out of town. So blessed to have found these ladies. :)
Gilda and Lydia are AMAZING!!! They are the only ones we will allow our boy to stay with because we know that he is in great hands. They are so caring and sweet and send continuous updates, photos and videos. Highly recommended. :)
We are very lucky to have found Gilda and Lydia! Their home is very dog friendly ,calm and overall great atmosphere. You can tell they really care about every dog they take in and they treat them like they are their own. They are absolutely wonderful ladies with good hearts and love what they do ! I felt very comfortable leaving our 10yr old baby with them . I am a complete worrier and I didn't worry about him while he was there. That's how comfortable and confident I felt with them !
We hope for all his future boardings with these ladies!
Thank you for taking such good care of my dog Brian. He comes back to us happy and in good spirits. I know he likes coming to your home because as soon as we get there, he jumps out of the car and runs up to your house.
I am Gilda's and Lydia's greatest fan. My dog has a pre-existing condition and while I was away he required a doctor's attention. Gilda spent all day taking Sila to see various specialists to make sure he was ok. Thank you!!!!
I love the photos they send me of my dog Brian. He is always so happy to go there and he comes back healthy and happy! Thanks for taking such good care of my boy
I cannot praise Gilda & Lydia enough! They are truly some of the most caring, passionate and sincere people I have come across since moving to Miami this year.

In July, I had to travel to Asia for a month and needed to board my 3 year old French bulldog. I was very worried about finding a right place for my pet, not only because I was leaving for a long time but also because my dog was recovering from a severe injury. At the time, he was taking 3 different kinds of medications through out the day. On top of this, my dog tends to lose 10 pounds whenever I board. After researching various options around Miami, I came across Dog Vacay. Although very skeptical at first, after reading great reviews I decided to set up a greet & meet session. When I met Gilda & Lydia immediately I knew this was the right home for my dog.

My dog and I are extremely lucky to have found Gilda & Lydia. I will continue to use their services for years to come!!

My dog is actually pretty depressed since leaving their place!
Always a good stay with Lydia and Gilda. They love my dog as much as I do. They gave him all his meds and took care of him when he had a seizure in the middle of the night. I feel safe leaving my furry baby with them.
Gilda and Lydia are the absolute best! Tyrone loves staying with them because he always has such a fantastic time. I know they treat him as though he were their own and there's always other furry friends for him to play with when he's there! I would definitely recommend them :)
Gilda and Lydia are the absolute best. I am completely at ease leaving my loving yet anxious dog with them. :) They are extremely reliable, patient and caring pet sitters. I literally couldn't dream up anyone better!
If you're looking for a dog sitter that will treat your pups as if they were their own you will find that in Gilda and Lydia. I left my two pups with them for 8 nights. It was the first time I had left them with strangers and I was nervous. I was very verbal about this right from the beginning. From the moment I walked in to our meet and greet I was immediately flooded with happy and loving vibes. Their home is warm, inviting, and perfectly set up to board pups. They have a fenced in back yard and give all the pups hours of playtime outside. They take the time to sit and learn about both you and your pup(s). They sent me pictures and updates daily and showed me how comfortable my pups were and how much fun they were having. Gilda and Lydia don't just love what they do they have a passion for it and it is apparent from the moment you meet them. They exceeded my expectations in every way and I will definitely utilize them in the future without hesitation. As a side note, I was away because I was getting married across the country, in California. The morning of my wedding I woke up to the sweetest email, from my pups, wishing us an amazing wedding day and said we were the best parents. It was such an amazing gesture that only a sitter who loves what they do and knows how hard it is for someone to be away from their pups for so long would even think of doing. I HIGHLY recommend Gilda & Lydia for your boarding needs.
gilda and lydia are fantastic. my little guy loves them!
Onyx always enjoys his stay with Gilda and Lydia!! Every time we pull up to their house, he immediately gets excited and once we let him out of the car, he runs to their front door. He feels at home and enjoys being there. So glad to have found them.
Gilda and Lydia are absolutely amazing!! I feel confident knowing that our boy is safe and in good hands. They send picture updates and you can tell that they truly adore dogs. Great people, beautiful fenced in yard for the dogs to run free. Highly recommended!!
Gilda and Lydia always take such great care of our dog Lillie. Lillie comes home with a smile on her face and a waggle in her tail.
This was Lexi's second time staying with Gilda and Lydia and both times were wonderful!They took great care of my baby and were amazing to deal with. This time around they went out of their way to help me out some daytime care for Lexi and i cant thank them enough! Hopefully Lexi can come visit again on my next trip away!
Gilda and Lydia were wonderful hosts for our 75 pound puppy, who enjoyed their 24/7 care and attention. A great home away from home for our pet; we had no worries about her being safe and in good hands.
As always Lexi had a wonderful time with Gilda and Lydia!!! I feel very comfortable leaving my little one with them, they are awesome!!! They are very professional and you can feel their love for our little ones!!! Thank you again!! See you next time!
I met with Gilda and Lydia before the stay and they were very nice and open with their home. They showed me their spacious backyard and we discussed that Maya needs 3+ walks and is very shy and distant with new people. In previous places Maya would lose weight, become lethargic, and become stressed out with bouts of stomach disorders and diarrhea. Gilda and Lydia walked Maya, made sure she would eat, hugged and kissed her, and sent daily pictures. When I picked up Maya, she was fine..she wasn't dehydrated, sick, stressed out or overly thin. She was her sweet self just as I left her. I am very happy and will continue to use Gilda and Lydia. Thank you!!! :-))
Thanks one more time Gilda and Lydia! We feel very comfortable leaving our little one with you. You guys are the best!!!
Our baby spent her first night with Gilda and Lydia and everything worked out great. She even slept in bed with them which she doesn't do at home. I also got regular updates on how she was doing. We will definetely go back again!
Gilda and Lydia are the best. What you see is what you get. We went to a meet and greet with blackie. They have a lovely house in a very nice part of miami. We spent time getting to know each other. Both love the pets. I picked up blackie today after his first and know that they took good care of him. They are very organized and super delightful to work with. I highly recommend them. I will use them again
Gilda and Lydia are wonderful!! They have a beautiful home with a beautiful yard!! My pups had a great time. I will use them again when I am out of town. Thanks!
I have nothing but great things to say about our Lucy's stay with Gilda and Lydia. They treated her like their own and from the pictures they sent me via txt we could see Lucy was having a great time and made lots of new canine friends. There is lots of love and caring in their house which reflects in all the happy doggy smiles . Lucy will be staying there again the next time we go away.... for sure.
Our pets have visited aunties Gilda and Lydia several times. Each time they go, they recognize the house and they are happy to stay there. We, in turn, can enjoy our holidays knowing that they take care of our pets!
Gilda & Lydia were very accommodating from the very beginning. They are very professional, responsible and caring dog sitters.
We left both our dogs with them during Christmas break, and they took very good care of our Beagle Maya, who needs to be medicated twice a day for her thyroid problems.
Lydia is a nurse, and she is a sweetheart. The dogs kept her company on her bday, which happens to be on Xmas eve...:))
We definitely recommend them as a home away from home for pets.
lydia and gilda are fantastic dog sitters. my dog is always fine and happy when i return.
Gilda & Lydia gave Christopher a loving home, a great pack to play with and the care & attention he needs and loves. He had a blast! We could tell from the pictures they would send. We feel that Christopher has a second home at Gilda & Lydia's, and that's a great feeling to have, especially when you travel as much as we do. We even left his bowl there knowing he'd be back!
i feel very comfortable going away and leaving my little love with gilda and lydia. i never worry when he is in their care.
Our entire experience with Gilda and Lydia was outstanding! They were both pleasant and professional. We had special needs for our boy and they went out of their way to be accommodating! Their pictures and postings while we traveled made us feel confident that he was happy and well cared for. Their home was warm and inviting and well set up to accommodate pets. We have not stopped talking about this wonderful experience, would use these lovely women again and highly recommend DogVacay as a result
Thank you for taking such a good care of my dog Brian! I really appreciated the pictures too. He came back healthy and very happy. So glad I was introduced to you both. Your home and back yard was doggy heaven, I am sure.
Gilda and Lydia are fantastic! They are super nice and love dogs. They watched our two shih tzus for two nights and both pups were happy and well taken care of. They sent us a photo of the little guys while we were gone which was great! Drop off and pick up was easy and Gilda and Lydia were very accommodating. We would ask them to watch our dogs in the future without hesitation.
Have you ever walked into someone's home and immediately felt the positive energy? That is exactly what happens the moment you step into Gilda & Lydia's lovely home. As soon as I walked in I could sense the calmness and love - I felt like I was visiting with longtime friends.

I travel almost every week, so finding a place that I knew Luca would be cared for and loved was very important. I have found that with Gilda & Lydia. I knew I made the right choice when dropping Luca off the following week and he bolted out of the car and went straight to the front door; he never looked back.

Gilda & Lydia send pictures and updates daily.
gilda and lydia are the best! my dog comes back happy and healthy and fed and walked and loved. love the doggie connection!
Lydia & Gilda are the BEST!

Throughout our stay away from our two little girls we were updated with pictures of them lounging and playing. Its a huge weight lifted off your shoulders knowing your 4 legged friends are being cared for with open arms. They never accept more dogs than they can handle.
To find Gilda and Lydia was a real blessing, Lupita is a little spoiled and after staying with Gilda and Lydia she loves them, since we got in contact we got answers to our questions right a way, they have the best attitude for this service and you can tell they take care of their guests for the love and passions for animals than for anything else. They send us pictures and videos every day which made us feel very comfortable and gave the peace we needed to enjoy our vacations, to feed Lupita becomes a mission sometimes but they managed to feed her all the time and interacting with other dogs got her to feel like she was having a little vacation of her own and also Gilda and Lydia's house meets the perfect conditions for your special one to have a great time.

Gilda and Lydia are two very kind and affectionate ladies with the best energy you can feel it right when you meet them, for us Gilda and Lydia are the best hosts in Miami.

We will always be grateful with them and we definitely recommend them for anyone wanting to have their special one taken care of with a 5 treatment, they will be in the best hands.
Thank you again to Gilda & Lydia for making us feel at ease while traveling without Csilla. It is such a comforting feeling to know your dog is in great hands and is being not only well taken care of, but treated as if she was one of the family. I am sure she is missing all the extra attention already. You both were so wonderful in posting up pictures to DogVacay when you heard that my cell phone dropped and broke - which allowed me to see photos of Csilla enjoying herself and playing. She is already wondering when she will get to see you again! KUDOS for such a great team of caregivers! Thanks again, Jamie and Denis
Gilda and Lydia were wonderful hosts for our little Tyrone! They sent pictures and updates daily and treated him like family. He had the best time playing with the other friends that they were taking care of - thanks again ladies. He misses you already :)
Gilda and Lydia are AMAZING!!! Very professional and loving. We are truly blessed to have found such great sitters for our boy. We highly recommend these ladies if you want top of the line care for your pet. Words cannot express the gratitude. :)
We were so lucky to find Gilda and Lydia for Lucy, our Basset Hound - Truly a 'home away from home' experience. Lucy instantly made new friends not only with Gilda and Lydia, but the other 2 dogs also in their care. We couldn't be happier to have found such a great place for her to stay... Such caring ladies, thanks so much!
Great experience. Gilda and Lydia have the perfect house for dog visitors. There is a huge Florida room, bright and cheerful with water bowls and dog toys around. The living room is big and dog are welcome to sleep in their own beds in the pet sitter's bedroom.

We got email photos, videos and updates daily. It made us feel super relaxed on our vacay.

The girls work from home and one is always there.

Ted is a senior dog and required eyedrops twice a day. It was not a problem. One was a nurse. They understood he couldn't see far. They sent videos of Ted playing. They were understanding of his needs and threw the ball very close to him so he could see.

Perfectly clean surroundings, a lovely landscaped fenced in yard...dogs were never left unattended.

It is the first time we have left Ted and the thought made me sick of leaving him for 10 days. After the first night he was perfectly adjusted.

And the best part was that when we saw him today, I went to his rug and he was fast asleep. I kissed him, he woke up looked at me and went right to Gilda. It made me feel good that this old dog found love and companionship.

We are now home, he is fast asleep in our bed.

I think these girls are perfect for pet-sitting. The whole setup was perfect.

Trust me, you will have a good time on your trip but your pet will have a better time.

Ready to make a reservation for Ted for November!

5 Star Dog Lovers...Gilda and Lydia. The way to go.

DogVacay is the best. I never would have known!

Xoxoxo, Ted AKA Chucky!

Lydia and Gilda are warm, caring, and loving caregivers. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with them. I got a picture and update every day, and they always got back to me very quickly if I had any concerns or questions. Their home is clean and inviting, and their love of animals is evident. I would not hesitate to recommend them wholeheartedly.
We are so so happy with the love and care provided by Gilda & Lydia! Our little one had a great time and she came home very happy. THANK YOU SO MUCH GILDA AND LYDIA for all your love and for keeping us posted with nice pictures and comments ; o)
Gilda and Lydia are 2 special ladies. They were able to detect my Luna is suffering from separation anxiety and Luna will start treatment asap! They are understanding, loving and caring for the dogs and us, the owners! Lydia and Gilda sent me pics of Luna stay and were absolutely great! Highly recommend!
Our dogs had so much fun!!!! We couldn't have picked better "aunties" to watch our puppies.

Gilda and Lydia were very patient and loving with our young puppies and older dog. They made sure to constantly send us photos of our dogs hanging out on the deck and going for walks.

Their home is very charming and perfect for dogs!

Our doggies can't wait until we go on vacation again to go stay with Gilda & Lydia. We will most certainly use their services again!
Gilda & Lyida are so awesome, friendly and caring. Csilla, our Hungarian Vizsla had a fantastic Memorial Day Weekend and appears to have adopted them as her new family! In the past we have boarded Csilla at a dog kennel near by, but she always came home from their feeling stressed, her coat would be dry and we truly felt that she was not getting the best care that she could have received. Enter Gilda & Lydia an Dog Vacay and what a tremendous gift. We were anxious about leaving her for the first time, but it only took a few minutes and while in route to our mini vacation, I was already receiving great pictures of Csilla showing me that she was already at home in their backyard and soon after, made herself at home on the couch! I felt relieved and knowing that she was in such good hands allowed my Husband and I to really enjoy our weekend. We are already booking Csilla in for another stay in the Fall. THANK YOU Gilda and Lydia - Csilla misses you already, Sincerely Jamie & Denis
A true loving warm home.
My expectations were by far exceeded!!!

Come from abroad and always travel with my pet. This was the first time I had to leave my Max with somebody and was frightened but, after the interview, felt very confident and knew that was the place to leave him.

Gilda and Lydia were not only hosts, they took Max as if it was their own pet! He felt at home, was pampered, had lots of affection, shared their home and now he misses them.

Gilda and Lydia are very respectful, warm hearted, educated and lovely people to deal with. Constantly they were sending photos and kept me informed about Max doings.

No doubt that I will recommend them and if needed will leave my Max, again and again, with them.
Gilda and Lydia were great! We are all a bit nervous leaving our pets, especially for the first time, for others to care for. I received pictures and updates of my 2 dogs. Gilda and Lydia made us feel secured that Daisy and Jojo were in good hands and they were. I look forward to using their services in the future. I strongly recommend their services when leaving your loved dogs for boarding, they would be in great hands and will feel just like if they were home! They are 5 stars pawsome!!! :)
We were very happy when we met Lydia and Gilda, they are wonderful, very kind people and we knew that Lexi was going to be in good hands.Thank you both so much for taking such good care of our little baby. See you again soon!
My overall experience with Gilda and Lydia was terrific. They asked and took notes about his normal routine, and what he is allowed to do at my house; also, they were concerned about any food allergies or medical problem. They are really nice persons and excellent dog sitters. Gilda and Lydia sent me pictures and updates. We'll be happy to see them again.
Our experience with Gilda and Lydia has once again been no less than amazing. We had a death in the family and had to head home as soon as possible. They did whatever was necessary to meet our needs and help us out. They have become Aunties to our dogs. They sent pictures and texts to assure us that the doggies were fine, which gave us peace of mind. I can write on and on about how great they are with the dogs and treat them as if they are their own, but seeing how our dogs love them speaks volumes. When we are there, the dogs go to them for love just as much as us. To see our dogs love them and jump up to ask for lovin' from them proves what our instincts were telling us. If you need to leave your canine family for whatever reason.....Gilda and Lydia are the BEST surrogate parents that you and your pets could ask for in your absence. Great energy, great vibes, great ladies and lots of love to give!
Gilda and Lydia were perfect dog vacay parents. They asked all the right questions upfront and they took the time to answer all my questions.

I felt so comfortable leaving our pup with them. Gilda and Lydia sent lots of pictures and updates which we received later due to our lack of internet on vacation but there was no doubt in my mind that they were taking good care of him.

Our pup came back in good spirits and well fed.

Thanks Gilda and Lydia! Highly recommend to anyone :)
Thank you Gilda and Lydia for looking after our little girl Cocoa. She had such a wonderful time that we think she missed her little vacation. Hope to see you two again. - John & Ashley
My 2 puppies love staying at Gilda and Lydia's! This have stayed with them twice and I will definitely call them again. They are very sweet and caring with the puppies. They have sent pictures and news about the puppies everyday. We'll be happy to see them again!!
My puppies went back to Gilda & Lydia's house. They were happy to see them again and to stay at their home. They are very nice and warm with the pets and very responsible. They take care of them as if they were theirs!!! What I also like is that they give you news and send pictures without asking!!! I really think they are the best!!!!
Gilda & Lydia are really very nice persons and excellent pet sitters. My 2 puppies loved their stay at their home! Gilda & Lydia took after my pets as if they were theirs!! They sent pictures and news everyday and I felt very comfortable during my days away. My puppies really had a great vacation with their new aunties! I definitely recommend them and will ask fore their help during my next trips!!!
Being new to the area, we didn't even know that so many "in house" boardings were available. Something just told us that Gilda and Lydia were the ones. We were so right. From the moment we met them, their compassion and big hearts were obvious. They took extensive notes about the different personalities of our dogs, who likes what, who makes strange noises, how they act when given a treat, etc. They were also concerned about any food allergies, even though neither dog has any, we were impressed with their thoroughness. They asked what our dogs were allowed to do at our home and did not want to allow anything that was not within our normal routine. Teddy and Lily were with them for 11 days which is a long time and for dogs who have not really been boarded before, we were a little anxious. After our "meet and greet", it was obvious that we did not have a thing to worry about. They kept telling us to go and enjoy our trip home with family. Pictures and texts were sent to let us know that they were adjusting well. The dogs always looked calm and happy. It was during the Christmas/New Year holiday season and our dogs became a part of their lives and celebrations. There is a calmness that they give you, knowing that they will take care of your babies as well as you do. The same feeling you get when you find a great daycare for your child. You just KNOW that you have found the right place. We truly feel as though the dogs became a part of their family. On pick up day, they were happy to see us but just as happy to run back to them as well. We would highly recommend them to anyone who wants their dogs to feel loved like they are with you. We would love to continue to have them be a part of our dogs lives. These two ladies have a lot of love to give and accepted our dogs into their hearts. We could not have asked for more. They get more than 5 stars….they get 100x that!!
Gilda and Lydia were very flexible and accommodating for us. They took very good care of our dog and it was not a problem when we were late picking her up due to transportation issues. I highly recommend them.
Our overall experience with Gilda and Lydia was great. Both took the time to get to know Raz and to make sure we felt comfortable leaving him with them. My daughter enjoyed recieving photograph updates on him and seeing what he was doing. We will definately be using Gilda and Lydia in the future for Raz's vacations!
Pepper's stay with Gilda & Lydia was awesome. We couldn't have had anyone better watch her over Thanksgiving. She didn't want to leave when we picked her up. We wish we could bring Gilda and Lydia to Denver so we could use them every time we need someone to keep Pepper.
Gilda and Lydia were incredible with Pepper. They adopted her like she was one of the family. Pepper was so happy there she didn't want to come home. Can't wait to use them again.
