My dog loved being with Emily. I would definitely use her again next time I go out of town. Thank You !!!
Emily and her husband were wonderful to work with, and they took good care of my girl. She came back happy and exhausted. I will definitely book again.
Bo was extremely happy, clean and had a very good interaction with Emily, her husband and dogs. Yes, a repeat visit is in the future.
McGuffey had a wonderful time staying w/Emily! Collies can be a sensitive breed and Emily made him feel relaxed and right at home. Her pups proved to be excellent hosts too and played happily w/McGuffey during his visit. Thank you Emily!
When we picked Jake up, it was obvious that he was well cared for and had a great time playing with Emily's dogs. I will definitely be calling her again.
Meeting Emily was wonderful!
Both Emily and her husband, as well as their two smaller dogs, seemed to be kind, gentle and got along with our dog Joey perfectly.
After our trip, Joey seemed as happy as ever!
Thank you Emily :D
I will definitely contact you again next time we go away!
We are new to the area, and were first-time DogVacay clients. Emily and her pack are so very friendly and welcoming!

As soon as we arrived, we were immediately at ease with how happy and healthy Emily's own dogs are, and our little dog quickly joined-in the fun.

We are very pleased at how much better DogVacay arrangements are than traditional kennel/boarding facilities, and Emily will be at the top of our list for future vacation dog care.
Emily and her husband were great with Louie! I was nervous about having to board him for several days, but he had a great time with their two dogs and was well taken care of. They will be my first choice when seeking a place for Louie in the future and they even asked to watch him again :)
Zelda always has a blast at the Waggin Retreat! Emily and her husband are extremely nice and accommodating! Guinness and Jameson are very cute and nice enough to share their fenced in back yard with vacationers!
Emily was great and her 2 dogs are really friendly. She always responded quickly and sent picture updates. My dog had a great time. I would definitely use Emily again.
Emily was awesome and charley had a great stay with her and her two dogs. She was so great to send me photos to show how charley was doing and that he was comfortable. I could tell he thoroughly enjoyed his stay because when I picked him up he was tired from all the fun playtime he had. I would definitely use Emily to watch charley again in the future.
I'm not usually one to write reviews, but we picked up our 16 month old dog from Emily today and were thrilled with how things went! During the four night stay, we got two pictures to show how Ellie was doing, and it was easy to see Emily had made her feel at home when we went to pick her up. Ellie relaxed on the couch while we talked and treated Emily and her husband like friends! We definitely know who to call when looking for someone to care for Ellie in the future!
Emily and her Husband were great. Their two dogs were friendly and welcomed my pup right in. They kept us updated while we were away and informed on when we could pick our dog up. Super friendly and a nice home. Definitely felt comfortable leaving Nugget with them.
Emily was so easy to work with! I would definitely use her in the future. She has two little pups of her own that we were excited to see. Our dogs always like meeting new friends so we were happy to know that they had companions to play with. This certainly helped take their minds off of us being away and our minds off of them forming any sort of separation anxiety.
It's nice to know that we have the comfort of someone else's home to leave our dogs in while we are on vacation. This is definitely a better alternative to the conventional kennel!!
Emily and her husband were so sweet and really great with my pup! This was my first time letting anyone else watch my sweet boy, especially someone from a website but it was definitely worth it. I could tell my baby loved staying with them.
This is the second time I've used Emily and couldn't be more happy. Panda was so excited to see her friends. Emily is excellent and even feeds panda her special diet. I feel completely comfortable leaving her knowing she is in good hands.
Emily is fantastic. This was the first time ever leaving my rescue and I was almost about to drive 12 hours to drop her off with my parents. As soon as we had the meet and greet I knew she would do just fine. Guinness and Jameson are very cute and friendly and my normally shy dog made herself right at home. Both Emily and her husband are very understanding and accommodating for you and your dog. Definitely recommend!
Emily was super easy to work with and my pup was worn out after his visit! :)
Emily was just as wonderful as last time! Jax was so excited when I dropped him off that he didn't even notice when I left. In fact, he almost looked disappointed to leave!
Emily was absolutely fantastic! Initially I was nervous about having someone other than family watching my little guy since I've never went through this website before but Emily put me at ease with daily updates/photos. She even watched Jax an extra 3 days when my flight was cancelled due to the weather. She was absolutely great to work with and I know Jax had a great time because he looked a little disappointed to be going home-he had too much fun with her pups! I would highly recommend going with Emily. I think she did a better job than any sitter I've ever had. I've already decided to book his next stay with her!
Addy had a great time hanging with Emily!!
Emily and her husband took such good care of our dog KC. He came home happy, healthy and with a new bandana Emily sewed for him. I highly recommend them and will definitely use them again.
We felt that our dogs were truly welcomed by Emily and her hubby. Emily treated our dogs like her own. I am so thankful to have found such a great place for our dogs to vacay!
Great Experience. Emily was great and I highly recommend her. She went above and beyond my expectations. This was the first time I have used the site and would recommend to anybody!
Emily was so great and welcoming to Panda. Panda had a great time playing in the backyard and going for walks with her 2 new buddies. I received lots of awesome pictures while I was away. I didn't have to worry about anything. I will definitely use Emily again and highly recommend her.
Emily was absolutely amazing and Hudson more than enjoyed himself. He had so much fun playing with Guinness and Jameson and I knew that he was in good hands. Emily sent me several pictures through out the day of Hudson running around in the fenced in back yard and lounging in the living room. I’ll defiantly be bringing him back then next time I go away.
