About Cathy, Jamie and Laura

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Paw-sibly this will be your pooch's favorite vacation destination to date! We are a mother/daughter duo with love to spare. Our home is extremely pet-friendly with a spacious side yard and backyard. If your dog is the swimming type, we will swim with them in our backyard as well! We have two dogs of our own who just love new friends. We also have an indoor/outdoor cat that is extremely friendly and keeps to herself.
We have owned/watched dogs of all sizes and temperaments and are prepared for anything that is coming our way! If your dog has any special needs, we are more than willing to communicate and take care of those needs.
In a typical day, your pups will be treated to walks in the neighborhood, food, fun and family time. We will try to accommodate a routine as close to what your pups are accustomed to in order to make them feel right at home! As an added bonus, we are happy to send pictures and updates of your dogs while we watch them as well!

Excellent communication and care!
Thanks for taking good care of our little guy. We were so happy to see him again and his little wagging tail. He obviously had a good time in your home and was looked after well with all the cuddles, play time and treats that he's so accustomed to at home. We'd definitely recommend you and would come back again.

We feel so comfortable leaving our puppy with Cathy and Laura. They have always taken such good care of our dogs. Highly recommend!
Cathy, Laura, and family were great! We felt that our two dogs were in good hands while we were away. Our little rescue, who doesn't like strangers, warmed up to everyone right away, and our puppy had lots of company and friends to play with it. A good weekend was had by all! Cathy & Laura were also flexible with pick up and drop off times, which was helpful. We will definitely use this host again.

Cathy and Fred were awesome!!! My little guy was well looked after and came home happy; I couldn't ask for more!
Awesome care. My dog was so happy! They took excellent care of our lab!
Cathy & Laura are the only ones I want to keep my baby. They make him part of their family. They also have lots of room for him, other dogs for him to play with, & they let him sleep in their room so he doesn't get homesick! He LOVES to stay with them!

Cathy and Laura took great care of Eli! Highly recommended!
They were the best dog boarders ever. Such a nice family with a beautiful house. Definitely the best on this whole website. Loving, caring, and sent us pictures throughout. Highly recommend them.
Excellent experience. Our dogs have never been away from home before so we were unsure how they would respond. Cathy, her family and their pets were very welcoming so we knew our dogs were in good hands. We will definitely contact them in the future.

Great communication and care! Would definitely book with them again.
Bronson had so much fun here! Cathy was also great when it came to pickup time and flexibility!
Leaving Mack with Cathy & Laura is like having him home with me. He is part of their family when he's there. I never have to worry about his care while I'm gone. They are wonderful!
they were amazing and Bronson had a great time!
Midge LOVES going to Cathy's! This was her second stay and she will definitely be back the next time we need to leave our baby. Cathy sent a picture of our girl snoozing away, comfy in her bed. But she definitely didn't snooze the whole time- I checked her activity tracker and she got tons of exercise. We've left her at a kennel before with vet onsite, and she came back with kennel-cough plus she seemed distraught. I don't feel guilty at all leaving her with Cathy because I know she's sleeping inside and gets to be with humans (her favorite!).

Cathy and Fred were great with my large lab/pitt mix! They have plenty of space for him to run around, and a friendly lab who loves to play and swim. Though my dog didn't go in the pool, he loved running around it while theirs jumped in.
Cathy and Fred were extremely flexible with my last minute arrangements.

Laura, Cathy, & the whole family are wonderful with my dog. Mack LOVES to stay there, & he is a nervous dog with separation anxiety. The only place he will stay apart from me is with Laura & Cathy. I can't tell you how highly I recommend them!
Fantastic Experience. As a first time DogVacay user, I was nervous. Cathy and Fred were so friendly, and accommodating. I'm sure I sounded like a crazy lady with all of my "she doesn't like, and will do" information.

We got updates during our time away and Abby was happy, and best of all tired, when we picked her up.

We would let Abby stay with them anytime. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience.

Cathy & Laura (& their whole family) were wonderful with my dog. I had just moved to LA & had to be out of the country for 3 weeks. I was so relieved that I didn't have to worry about Mack's care while I was gone; they made him part of their family. I wouldn't leave him anywhere else!

Laura and Cathy are wonderful and caring. They took such good care of our puppy! She got to go on hikes, swim and play with other dogs. Couldn't be happier about her care!
Our dog, Gidget, loved her stay! She is crazy about swimming and was able to swim with the other dogs during her stay. I would definitely recommend Cathy & Laura to anyone considering using them!
Laura and Cathy were wonderful. My reservation was made on short notice while they were out of the country. They were prompt in returning all correspondence.

They took excellent care of our dog, and I would not hesitate asking them to care for her again in the future. :)

I had a great experience with Cathy and will continue to use her when I go out of town. She was very flexible when I asked her to watch my dog an extra night and kept me updated on how her stay was going!
Our Francis is in such great hands with Cathy and Laura! We know she is well looked after when we are away and in the pictures they send, we can tell she's smiling.
Laura, Cathy, and the whole family are great! We've had our puppies stay with them a couple of times while we have left town, their own dogs are adorable and their backyard is really nice for any visitor. We are so happy to have found them!
Francis had a great time, and we loved the experience with Laura and Cathy - Francis came back having been well loved in their household!
Laura, Cathy, and company are AMAZING! We couldn't ask for a better family to take in our boy. If it was an option, we would easily give them 6 stars. You can't go wrong with this family!
Fabulous family and host. Molly loves coming here and they are our first choice for hosts whenever we travel. Easy to communicate and flexible, great folks!
Fred and Cathy was a complete pleasure to work with. Both were extremely kind and accommodating! Rudy came back home happy and thats all we can ask for! This is a home filled with love. Do not hesitate in trusting your loved ones with such wonderful people.

Really wonderful hosts. While all the hosts send you a pix of your dogs - this has been the only one where I can tell my dog is in heaven. Our dog is an older one and you can tell she feels it's warm and homey, we will keep coming back.
I couldn't ask for better! My dogs were very happy!! They sent me photos and were very accommodating! Really nice people who I look forward to working with again!! Thank you for providing a safe, warm, happy place for my dogs!!! Butters & Lolli miss you already!

Thank you so much, Cathy, for loving our dog Dexter and accepting him into your family for the weekend!
While he is loveable, he can be hyper and a handful. I felt so at peace leaving Dexter with Cathy. She sent texts and pictures to let us know Dexter was having a great time with their sweet pooches, Lucy and Coco. He came home completely exhausted and happy. I know he'll miss his new pals. Well definitely ask for Cathy to board Dexter again! Thank you!

Cathy, Fred, and family were amazing! You can truly tell their love for animals and see their experience with all sizes and breeds. Thanks guys for taking care of our big boy. I HIGHLY recommend them!
Cathy and Fred are amazing and are genuinely some of the nicest people I have ever met! It is such a relief to know that Oscar is in good hands while we are away. It really felt like they took Oscar in as their own, they even let him sleep at the bottom of their bed, like he does at home. This was our first time using Cathy and our first time using DogVacay and I couldn't be happier.

Laura and Cathy were very caring hosts for my special needs dog. They said they have seen it all and have cared for sick dogs before. They were willing to cook a special diet for my dog, change diapers, and administer medicine. They never once made me feel that these extras were a burden and only told me what a wonderful dog she was. They also sent me regular text messages and pictures. I highly recommend them!

Laura and Cathy (and their family) were terrific. Molly was very happy, she got along fine with their little dogs - and even though she hates cats - she didn't seem to have a problem with their very mellow one. We would definitely want to have her there again.
