About Megan & Joshua

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have always had a dog since we have been a family. Our first dog, Buddy, lived a long and happy life of 15 years. There are 4 humans in our household over the age of 16, that are all capable and partaking in caring for canines, so your pup will rarely be left alone. We even have a leash-free zone not far from our home. Our current dog (the blue-eyed husky mix in the pictures) is 7 years old, and is very active and social. She welcomes canine visitors and houseguests. She is especially fond of Huskies, Labs, and Shih Tzus. She loves to go for runs and walks, and we offer the same if you have an active canine.

In 2014, we also adopted a Toy Yorkie, named Marley, who loves everyone and every dog (though he may need to sniff you and give a little bark at first). He is especially fond of big dogs. We sometimes may need to limit the bookings, based on the number of pups and their personalities, for the safety and comfort of the dogs, as that is our main priority.

WE DO OUR BEST TO WELCOME ANY FURRY FRIEND, BIG OR SMALL, we have fun watching them all :)

I'm so glad to have found Megan to look after my fur baby. She just loves her! and she took real good care of my little Bella.
She is very trustworthy and I won't just trust anyone to leave me fur baby with.
Repeat customer for as long as she'll have our Bella :)

This was our dog's first experience with DogVacay and Megan and Josh. He adjusted very quickly to his new environment and had a blast playing fetch! We loved the photos of the pooches dressed up in Christmas gear. So adorable! Our dog was well taken care of, and came home very happy. Highly recommend Megan and Josh for this service!

Thanks - Layla had fun in the snow!
Pepe loves his 'vacays' with Megan & Joshua and parents! Thank you for taking such good care of him!
Villa des Chiens is the best!! My dogs are happy and relaxed there and the family always takes great care of my "kids". I'm so happy I found a place and people that I feel comfortable leaving Ollie and Hondo with.
Thanks again for taking great care of Buddy!
Another great stay!
Another great stay for Buddy! I love that they send me an email to keep me posted on his visit!
They were good and still took Shadow even though he was sprayed by a skunk the night before!!!!:( They were great at sending me emails and pictures to keep me informed of how things were going.
Megan, Josh and family are terrific pet hosts. Ollie is excited to be there when he see's their house. My newer dog Hondo, is a little skiddish but she bonded really well with Megan.
I would highly recommend them as sitters. They are flexible, caring and provide a great environment and lots of exercise to the pooches.

We have never left our dog with anyone other than family until now. This spring/summer we have left her with Megan and Joshua three times and each time she has enjoyed it. She can be a little anxious - especially around fireworks but she seems really comfortable staying with Megan and Joshua. Thank you!

They are a wonderful host family who took great care of Buddy and put me at ease! I look forward to reserving with them again soon!
Nice hosts.
This was my second time leaving Ava with Megan and Joshua and as always she had a great time. This was a longer stay and Meagan and Josh were quick to reply to my messages and also provided updates. Happy to trust Ava's care to this family in the future and highly recommended. Thanks Mega, Josh and fam! h

I left my Standard Poodle, Duncan, with Megan and Joshua for the first time this weekend and they were great!

Duncan is a high energy dog and hasn't had an overnight with another family since we got him at a year old just over a year ago. Megan kept him busy by taking him for a run one day and to an off leash park the next, and that was on top of him playing with the other dogs that were at their home for the weekend. Megan also took the time to send me an note to let me know he how he was doing being that this was the first time he'd stayed with them.

You can tell this family has a true love for dogs and they let Duncan be part of their pack. I will definitely be contacting them the next time I'm looking for a dog sitter.

Megan and her family were great with Zac. When we got him back he was extremely happy and looked well taken care of.

They were also very responsive to our late request and were still able to accommodate us in such a short time.

I hope they continue their great work in loving and caring for our pets.

Thank you again for sharing your love and care with our Zac.

This was our 2nd time leaving Myja behind with Megan and here wonderful family. We love that Myja is taken in and becomes apart of theirs. We will continue to have Megan and her family watch Myja whenever we go away as we know she is well taken care of and do not have to stress in any way over her well being. I can't thank them enough for that feeling. I am always recommending Dog Vacay now to friends with pets.

Amazing! This was the first time leaving our furball and being away. Megan and her family were great! We met at a local dog park where Myja and their four legged companions hit it off perfectly. This made it way more comforting for me to leave her behind. I was nervous to drop her off however excited as well. My biggest fear was that she can be a big suck and glue herself to you. We got back and went to pick her up it was like telling a child it was time to leave the park. She came out to see us with her tail wagging then turned around and went back to play. It took us a couple minutes to convince her it was time to leave. I highly recommend Megan and her family.

Thank you Joshua and family for taking such good care of Belle during her 4 weeks stay. You were responsive and very professional to deal with and we feel very comfortable with leaving Belle with you in the future. I can really see the whole family is in this business together. Keep up the good work. We will be back.

Great stay!
Layla seems to have had a great stay and she will be looking forward to coming back!
Thank you Megan and Joshua for taking good care of Goldie when we were away. She returned to us better behaved than when we dropped her off!! We will definitely use you again. Sharon
We were very happy leaving our little Apollo with Megan. From first contact with Megan, I was content with our choice. It was convenient that she is not too far from our home.

When we had the meet and greet, it looked like Apollo would fit right in. He was a little nervous at first, but then he warmed up real quickly.

When we dropped him off, he seemed to be okay, it was difficult for us to leave him, but we felt confident about our decision.

While on vacation, we got updates on how Apollo was doing, along w some pictures, which was really nice, because we really missed him. He seemed to be having a good time, and fit in well with the resident dogs, and other doggie guests.

Our little Apollo loves to cuddle, and Megan was able to have some cuddle time with him, which made us feel really good. We really wanted him to feel at home, and I believe that, he felt that way.

Megan was very accommodating, when we picked up Apollo a little later then expected (we got to our car at the airport, and our battery was dead, so we have to wait for roadside assistance, about 30 min).

We would definitely leave Apollo w Megan and Joshua again.

Thank you to Megan and your family and Have a Merry Christmas :)

Nukka absolutely loves Megan and Joshua's It's her home away from home. She is always excited to be dropped off and calm and stress-free when I pick her up. I work shift work and live an extremely busy life! M&J are always accommodating to my crazy schedule. I couldn't do it without them!

Joshua and the entire family have been so wonderful in watching our Yorkie, Harley and Aussie, Sadie, several times this summer/fall. Our Sadie is full of energy and she always come back exhausted and happy. Harley is in heaven since he gets to play with Marley and other smaller guests. Both dogs seem to be very attached to Terry (dad) so we get a bit jealous of that. :) Harley and sadie are looking forward to their next stay with you.

Megan, Joshua and family are fantastic dog hosts! My dog, Ollie has stayed with them on two occasions for several days.
They are communicative and flexible regarding pick up and drop off times. The second time Ollie was so excited to go he even recognized the house!!
I would highly recommend having your pet stay with them!!

Megan and Joshua accepted Coco with open arms, warm heart and plenty of patience. Their house is dog friendly and it is obvious that the whole family has love and passion for their "job" :-) Simply put - they trust their knowledge, experience, instincts and authority and that inevitably and directly affects dogs in a positive way. We felt this right away at our Meet-n-Greet date, so we felt quite comfortable leaving Coco behind. Coco loved having a company of their own dogs and others while in their care. His daily routine was followed and he was quite happy there. He did bark a lot still while with them (and I thank them for tolerating it), but I noticed a much positive change in his behavior when greeting guests at the door. He calmed down at our house a lot and even likes car rides now, which is amazing. Obviously they are to thank for that. Family is very flexible with drop off and pick up times and the whole experience was stress free for us all, Coco included. We shall definitely recommend their services to others and will not hesitate to leave Coco in their care again. Thank you all, Dog Vacay and Megan and Joshua with their family for making this possible and our vacation a true joy for the first time in a long time. Cheers!

We were very initially apprehensive with leaving Duke our 1.5 yr old energetic and playful male Doberman Pinscher. This was the first time we have had to leave Duke with someone due to a day log wedding and did not want him to be at home alone with Raja, our 10 yr old male German Shepherd. We were pleasantly surprised and extremely happy to find out that Due really enjoyed his day with them behaved himself and was very well looked after. Next on the agenda is to keep Duke with them overnight when the next opportunity arises.

Ginger seemed to really enjoy her week. I got lots of updates from Megan about Ginger's stay, including an email with some photos of Ginger enjoying her time there. I loved that they took her to the off-leash park for hikes, and that Ginger was allowed to sleep wherever she was most comfortable (which was on her own bed in Megan's room...lucky Megan got lots of kisses every morning!). Would definitely use again!

Megan & Joshua, and the entire family! Did an amazing job taking care of Bentley. After our initial meet and greet I knew Bentley would be loved and cared for just like he is at home.

They welcomed him with open arms and treated him very well. He was happy when I picked him up and slept the entire ride home...and all night!

Very organized and very trustworthy. I can't thank you all enough!

Goldie returned to us happy, clean and contented! We are sure she enjoyed playing with the other dogs and we appreciated receiving photos and emails while we were away. Thanks Megan and Joshua, we would definitely use you again!
Another great stay for Chloe with some really great hosts. As like before, they were great to work with and truly love the dogs. Can I give more than 5paws?
Megan and her father are extremely nice people and I quickly realized how much control they have of the dogs they were sitting. Simply having a yard and walking dogs is not enough, you have to be an Alpha in order to have harmony in a house full of animals, and that is what they both have. The day I need someone to look after the dogs, Megan and her father are the first people that I will contact.

Megan was super flexible when it came to the drop-off /pick-up times for my dog. While my dog was in her care, she not only took her on LONG walks to tire her out, but Megan kept in contact with me and gave me updates on the stay -- this was REALLY nice as it helped me 'cope' with being away from my dog for a couple days.

Besides this, I very much enjoyed having Megan, a very independent young woman, take care of my dog, and I feel everyone should give her the same opportunity - she deserves it - and so does your dog!

My dog had a great stay and I enjoyed hearing about it when I picked him up!
My Chloe stays with Megan & her family weekly. I'm a very overprotective doggy mommy & this is one place I truly never have to worry about her care. When I pick Chloe up she's tired from playing all day & a very happy girl.

Megan's entire family are great people and you can tell they love their furry guests :) thanks for providing a consistently positive experience !!

Wonderful experience. My insatiable lab was so tired, he slept the entire trip from Toronto to MN.
Megan & Joshua were wonderful with Abby! The whole family took her in and treated her like their own. She will definitely be visiting them again. Su
Megan and her family were awesome ! We left our dog Zoey with them for a week, and would not hesitate to have her go back. They were a friendly and caring family, and Zoey was well taken care of. After our meet-n-greet we felt that Megan was a great choice, as Zoey got to spend a week in a loving family atmosphere with other dogs to play with. I will definitely recommend them to my friends. Thanks Megan !

Tucker slept for 2 days straight after he got home...great job!
Our puppy returned from her stay at Megan's over the weekend completely exhausted. Megan lives on a quaint Mississauga street in a lovely home.

Everyone I have met in Megan's house seemed to be genuine dog lovers and experienced handlers.

We would (will) definately use Megan again.

Once again a great visit for wrigley. Thanks Megan and family!
Megan and her family rocks! Nukka stays with them on almost a weekly basis and loves her time there. She is so much more relaxed when we pick her up than when we take her to the kennel overnight. We highly recommend Megan!!!
I was very happy with Sherman's stay with Megan.
She kept me up to date with info and pictures. It was obvious that he was having a very good time.
And, they were very accommodating of my dropoff and pickup schedules.
Thanks again.

I have a 14 pound, 7 year old Maltese mix named Buddy who is a very anxious dog so I needed to find the perfect people to leave him with while I went away. We had a Meet N Greet ahead of time in their clean, lovely home, which went very well so they could get to know Buddy and I could get to know them. Buddy was anxious when I was leaving him, however, I knew he would be in the great hands of not only Megan but also her entire Family. Megan sent me an update and picture as to how Buddy was doing which was nice for my peace of mind. They have a beautiful dog who is so gentle and easy going that I know was a great companion for Buddy. Buddy was allowed the same habits that he has at home like being able to be up on the couch cuddling with the Family and he slept on the bed which I know made him feel loved and comfortable. When I picked him up he was obviously excited to see me but was not anxious and looked like he had a good time and also so clean since Megan went out of her way to give Buddy a bath before I picked him up since she said his paws were dirty from being outside like all dogs and being white. I was very impressed by that extra bit of attention that was given to him. Having back problems it saved me from having to get his paws cleaned up when I got him home. I will be taking Buddy back to this great Family for an extended stay of a few weeks or even a month or more during my upcoming spinal surgery in a few months knowing that he was taken care of and loved as much as he is at home where it is only him and I. I thoroughly recommend Megan if you need a great place to leave your "Baby" where you know he/she will be in very capable/loving hands. Thanks so much Megan and Family!!!!

Megan and family were absolutely great! Aubrey was a happy dog when we came to pick him up. He wasn't stressed like he would have been at a kennel! I think he really missed Sapphire and his other new friends when he came home. Would definitely go with Megan again. Thanks Megan and family! Btw, loved the email updates!,

Megan and the rest of the team were amazing at taking care of Chloe. We got updates, photos and quick replies to both emails and text messages. This was such a relief for us to know that Chloe was in good hands and having a good time. I feel that staying in Megan's care was great choice for Chloe since she got a home to stay in with a loving family to watch over her. What more could I ask for. She got to stay and play with Sapphire; a vacation of her own. In a word, excellence. Thanks again Megan for going the extra mile of setting up a meet-n-greet within my schedule. Again, thanks. Five stars all the way. I will recommend Megan and her family to everyone and will use her again to watch Chloe in future when I am going away.

One more time. Megan and family you are wonderful hosts and loving family. Ellie was soo happy after return. Thank you soo much.
just outstanding.. our Ellie loves her second home.
The entire Camp Canine clan is amazing! We recently left our two pups with them for a week while we were away on our destination wedding trip. I was extremely nervous to leave my dogs with someone other than my family but Megan and her entire family are fantastic! I received updates on a regular basis as well as photos so I could see how well they were doing. It really kept my mind at ease knowing that two very important members of our family were also having a fun time! They were well exercised and all of the instructions I left were followed! I would not hesitate to recommend Camp Canine to anyone who needs a dog sitter and I will definitely be bringing my dogs back if we ever go on another trip!

My dog Arthur had a wonderful stay with this family. They were very friendly, welcoming, and reliable. Their house was clean, and our dog was exercised and relaxed when we picked him up!
They even sent photos which was fun and gave us peace of mind that our dog was having a good time! I would highly recommend Camp Canine!

We're very open to meeting prior to our dogs stay and accommodated her exercise requirements with lots of play and a run. Was nice to receive a note during the stay just to let us know everything was good. Will be back!
Very accommodating, great set up, would definitely use their service again.
Megan is absolutely amazing and we would definitely recommend her to everyone. Myja took well to Megan and the other dogs. Megan sent us pictures to let us know how Myja was doing. We did not worry about her at all. We will definitely be going to Megan whenever Myja needs a vacation. Thanks for the excellent care of our furbaby

Both our Dogs Charlie and Max stayed with Meghan and her family for 1 week. When we picked them up, we were greeted with 2 very happy dogs. We heard very happy reports on their behaviours, and they described our dogs like we would. It was very nice to know that they were well taken care of. Thanks sooo much. Mel Mike and the boys

This is was my first time ever leaving my dog with someone while I was away and I was panicking at first. I can honestly say I couldn't have picked a better place for my ultra hyper 1 year old lab to stay. I was worried about my dog being two hard to handle for the host and being destructive due to lack of exercise.

We brought our dog to the meet and greet with Megan and her family, right away we were at ease by speaking with them. They are extremely friendly family and gave us a great vibe about Stella(my dog) staying with them and their dog Saphire. They are true dog people that understood my concerns.

Megan kept in contact, updating us while we were on vacation about how our dog was doing the entire time which kept my worries away (until we had a mishap with both our phones, which is no fault of hers), she was very prompt and I knew my dog was getting lots of exercise and socialization. The day I picked up my dog she looked happy, bathed, and in a healthy and happy state. Megan and her family had accommodated us on our drop off and pick up times which was fantastic. Great service!

My dog is my best friend and I am glad I chose this host to look after her. Anyone who wants their dog to be treated well while they are away and need a peace of mind should choose this host. I hadn't gone on vacation for over a year because I was always worried about who I would leave my dog with and how she would be taken care of, now I know a place where I can. Thank you Megan, we are totally leaving Stella with you again!

Megan and her parents are absolutely wonderful..their dog gets along with everybody nicely. Didn't have any problems at all, great communication as well. This is the first time our dog actually looks forward to staying at someone's house!
Was skeptical about leaving my dog, Saber with a stranger for 1 week. But after meeting with Megan and the family, I knew she would be in the best of care. They are avid dog lovers who treated Saber as if she was one of their own. It was peace of mind for 1 week. Would recommend Megan to anyone who needs a dog sitter, and definitely will be contacting Megan again if I'm going away!
