About Matt

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
The Pampered Pooch: where the dogs come first. My wife and I have two sweet dogs Pearl and Boomer. I worked at Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption where we were blessed to get both of our dogs from. However now, I'm caring for pets full time, whether that's boarding, daycare, or walks. Having this great schedule allows ample time for our dogs and yours whether it be walks, playing with toys, or just having someone there with them.

Our dogs: Boomer is 2 years old and 14 lbs of furry fury that loves to run and play with other dogs, while Pearl is 12 years old and prefers to relax. Whatever your dogs temperament, if they love to play all day or are more laid back, they will feel at home in our home with a similar companion to socialize with.

Special Rates:

Larger dogs (50+ lbs) or Puppies less than 1 year: $45 boarding per night. We'll only take one dog per night if they're larger or non-house trained.

2nd/Additional dogs: $25 boarding per night.

Matt did a great job taking care of our three dogs. He sent updates and pictures throughout the week, and when we came home, the pups seemed happy and relaxed. I would definitely work with him again.
Matt is very friendly and was flexible with us even accommodating us at the last minute. This is the second time we left Finn with Matt and both times he has come back looking like he had a fun and non - stressful time. He loves Matt's dogs especially Boomer and we really appreciated all of the updates and pics we received from him while we were away. Thanks Matt! He is definitely a go to sitter for us!
I held off on a review until I had a chance to use Matt a second time. We have a very shy Doberman (even though she is a giant), Matt and his wife take such good care of her. I honestly think she had a better vacation than we did.
Matt helped me out in a pinch by letting Jack out multiple times during the day at my apartment. Good to have a reliable resource like Matt in the area.
Great with my pups. Second time for them watching the two of mine and they are absolutely great.
Matt and Tess are on fire! They are truly amazing. They watched my 8 month old boarder collie for 3 1/2 days. She enjoyed her stay and her new little friends. I highly recommend the Pampered Pooch!
Matt was great with my fur baby.
Matt and Tess are awesome! They have watched Charlie several times now. I always feel so comfortable when we drop Charlie off because I know he's in good hands. The last time we dropped Charlie off he jumped out of the car practically into Matt's arms!
Matt and Tess were wonderful! Felt really comfortable leaving my dog with them they are really sweet. While I was on my trip they sent updates and photos which really made me feel at ease since it was my first time leaving my two pups. Would definatly use them again!
Matt and Tess are fantastic dog sitters! We have left our two dogs with them multiple times, and we always have a stress-free time away from our dogs. Matt sends photos and updates daily, and our dogs feel at home with him and Tess(and their two dogs!) Matt is very flexible and easy to coordinate with as well. Would highly recommend Matt! We are so glad to have found them.
Our Shihtzu was well taken care of. Our dog is afraid of everything and she seemed to fit right in. Matt sent us pictures during the weekend and we were more than satisfied with their care. We highly recommend their pet sitting services.
Bingo and Max had not been left before so I was a bit nervous but they did great with Matt and Tess. They took GREAT care of them and made them feel at home away from home. We will be taking them back this weekend when we have another trip planned.
Matt and his wife were great with Sophie! They made her feel right at home, and they were great about sending pictures. I would highly recommend them to anyone!
Our Yorkie, Jax had a great stay with Matt and Tess! They were very accommodating and great about sending pictures will we were away. Jax would be happy to go back next time we are travelling!
Matt and Tess were incredibly warm and welcoming to me and my fur baby, Bella. After a recent bad experience with a large dog, I was looking for a home with primarily small dogs who would be a good fit for my dog.

I struck gold! Pearl and Boomer were a great fit for Bella and I think Bella may have found a boyfriend in Boomer. Matt sent updates and photos everyday so I knew Bella was in great care and having fun.

I highly recommend Matt and Tess and thank them for opening their home to Bella. It was a great experience.
Matt and Tess took great care of our 3 4-legged children! Matt even took time to send daily photos while we were traveling. This was above and beyond! We look forward to another vacation and no worries!
I cannot recommend Matt and Tess highly enough – they are fantastic. My dog is a member of my family and I always worry about her safety and wellbeing when I travel.

Before traveling to Europe, I discovered Dogvacay and Matt and Tess. I met Matt and Tess, and their two dogs, and felt at ease with their care and love of dogs. Matt sent daily text notes with pictures and even did a few Facetime video chats with my dog having a great time. I had a more enjoyable vacation knowing my dog was in the best of care.

I only worry, that next time, my dog might want to stay with Matt and Tess longer.

I am happy to provide any references.

Thanks again for taking such good care of London.
