About Tom

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are Allie and Tom. We are new to DogVacay, but not new taking care of pets. We have had pets all our lives and love them. We live in Akron, in the Chapel Hill area and have two dogs of our own. We love to spoil them with attention and love. We have had pets all of our lives growing up and as adults.
We have a fenced in back yard that is kept locked. The dogs have free range of the house and the yard when they want to play outside, weather permitting. We promise to take care of your loved one as one of our own and make every effort to make them feel at home.
You can feel confident that your dog will receive the attention, love, safety and security they need, so you can have peace of mind.
We look forward to hearing from you and would love an opportunity to take care your loved one(s).

Tom and Ally took great care of our anxious little puggle. She was recently rescued from a puppy mill and is quite a handful. Tom and Ally were super laid back about her quirks. They even sent me a video of her playing with the other dogs. Great experience!
This was our first experience with DogVacay and my two had a great time. I was anxious to leave them because our oldest usually whines and we recently adopted our youngest so we had no idea how he would act. Tom & Allie sent updates reassuring me they were fine and settling in at their house. I was able to relax knowing they were doing well.
Tom and Allie are amazing. They loved on my sweet old man doggy while I was away, gave him his medication, and sent us lots of wonderful updates and photos. I've never had a trip away in which I worried less. I highly recommend these fantastic dog loving people of you ever need to travel without your pups. 10 out of 10 experience for us.
A wonderful experience all round. Allie and Tom were perfect hosts. Terrific communications, very flexible and provided several daily updates and photos about how our boy was doing. We will definitely reserve again the next time we're in town.
When I had our meet-n-greet, Allie allowed
Cindy to make her acquaintance in her own time.
Cindy seemed to be very happy when I returned from my trip. She did not seem in a great hurry to leave. Allie was kind enough to brush off any behaviors that my spoiled little princess had. Allie even gave her a bath for me. When I left Cindy, Allie slowly reintroduced her two dogs with great success. I would use this sitter again without hesitation. In fact, I am considering using her for some occasional play dates for Cindy.
This is our second experience with Tom and Allie. They are great hosts! They will sent me posts about our dog so that we knew how he was doing everyday.
Our dog had a great time at daycare with Tom and Allie. She played hard(and even better) slept well later that night! Small groups are easier to handle and way more fun for the dogs. I will be a repeat customer here for sure. Thanks!
Tom and Allie took great care of my dog Izzie! They kept in contact, and sent a video and picture! We will definitely use them for future needs!!!
Tom and Allie were wonderful hosts to our dog Ellie. From the initial contact to the very end when we picked her up, they were quick to respond to all of our messages and they accommodated all of our needs, including a very early drop-off time. We particularly liked how both of them got to know Ellie at the "Meet and Greet" which made our drop-off for her 4 day stay go smoothly. She typically whines and cries when she is dropped off, but she did not do that with Tom and Allie. We also appreciated the daily pictures and updates which helped ease our minds that Ellie was doing well. Ellie is a young pup with lots of energy, but she also loves to sit in laps. At Tom and Allie's, she was able to run and play with their 2 dogs and then follow it up with a healthy dose of lap cuddling. They took great care of her, and I would definitely use them again in the future!
Tom and Allie treated Nala like their own pet. I was nervous at first because Nala is 13 and has not stayed with many people. Tom held her, cuddled her and spoiled like his own 2 dogs. :) I would recommend their care to others.
Tom and Allie were fantastic hosts for Smokey. They kept me updated daily, with photos and reports. I would recommend Tom and Allie. I am very happy with them, and my Dogvacay experience and would use them again.
Tom and Ally were very caring and loving to our son, he was exhausted, but very happy and we could tell he was loved the entire time, the daily updates and pictures were a plus,I will definitely use them again.
I would highly recommend having Tom and Allie take care of your dog while you are away. They are very experienced in taking care of all kinds of dogs and will love and care for your pet as if it is their own. When we went to pick up our Greyhound, Annie, she was happy and content. I will definitely have them take care of her again. Thanks Tom and Allie!
Tom & Allie were great with my girl. She had a great time & they sent me lots of pictures throughout her stay. This was our first experience with DogVacay & our first experience with Tom & Allie. They were accommodating to our last minute needs & changes. I would recommend DogVacay & Tom & Allie to anyone.

Thank so much!
Tom was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. He kept me updated on how she was doing by sending pictures.
This was our first time using dog vacay and it was fantastic! We were looking last minute and Tom was very flexible and sent us updates over the stay. Highly recommended! Thanks again!
Katie's stay with Tom & Allie was wonderful. I think she got a lot of special attention. I appreciated the daily updates and pictures. I wouldn't hesitate and booking another doggie vacation with them!!
This was my 1st DogVacay experience & I am so pleased with Tom! He took awesome care of my furbaby, sent me several updates & answered right away. They are so nice & made me feel comfortable with her visit, even though I made last minute plans. Highly recommend Tom!!
Our pup Ted clearly had a great time at TLC with Tom! He slept for 2 days when we brought him home he must've been wiped out from all the play time. Got plenty of picture updates which always make me comfortable that he's getting attention. Will definitely rebook in the future!
We had never left our 2 beagles with anyone before and were very anxious about doing so. Tom and Allie were great hosts, providing us with daily updates and pictures, which helped us feel at ease while on our trip. We could tell that the beagles appeared at ease too and were in good hands. We will definitely use their services in the future.
Tom and Allie are such nice people! They made sure my two senior dogs were eating and taking their pills, even sacrificing a hotdog or two from their cookout to make it happen. My anxious old girl was relaxed enough to eat and sleep well. They weren't intimidated by big bouncy Buster, my third dog. I got some nice picture updates showing my gang making themselves right at home. Thanks, Tom and Allie! I would highly recommend these folks to care for your pets!
Took such good care of my two Frenchie babies!
Ours was a last minute request for a quick overnight and Allie and Tom were very accommodating. Spanky had a great time playing in their fenced yard with the other dogs. He was tired and happy when we picked him up! We would definitely use them again.
I found Tom and Allie while looking for a dog sitter. When I met with them I felt very comfortable and I knew they love animals and will take good care of my dog. They live in a house located in a quiet street behind Chapel Hill mall - convenient to get to and their yard is fenced so the dogs can play outside. I received several updates with pictures during the day they watched my dog. Both are very caring and friendly and I am planning to use their services again and will definitely recommend them to anyone who needs a reliable dog sitter.
They took very good care of Hercules ... He came back happy and healthy ....
No issues whatsoever with my pup's vacay with Thomas. He was easy to get in touch with and very accommodating to my changing schedule. My dog seemed to have a great time with his other pets and great fenced in yard, and I even received numerous pictures and updates throughout my dog's vacation with Thomas. It was great! Will definitely book again with Thomas. Thank you!
