Derrick was a wonderful host to our newly adopted Boxer. We needed to do a quick overnight to see family and were concerned that Apollo would have some separation anxiety since she has bounced around a bit in the past six months. That was not the case. No issues at all. It was easy to book with Derrick. He was responsive and easy to communicate with via the DogVacay app. We will use Derrick again.

Thank you, Derrick!
We left our two dogs with Derrick for a week and both of them seemed to have a great time. It was our first time leaving the Chihuahua mix, but Derrick took extra good care of him and we didn't have to worry about a thing. He even took them to the dog park and gave them baths so they came home smelling fresh and we couldn't be happier.
Derrick was super friendly and did a great job with our dog. He made our dog part of his family.
Did a great job with Sarah, will recommend him to anyone.
We tried taking our dog camping, and it didn't work out. So I was in a real pinch looking for someone to board our pup, Daisy, at the last minute for our second night out at Lake Georgetown. She's a rescue, so I didn't want to put her in a kennel-type situation, and Derrick came to our rescue through Dog Vacay! He was great with her, and very enthusiastic about spending lots of time playing with Daisy and walking her. He is a very nice guy and his home is in a nice neighborhood with lots of space, including a large fenced yard. When I picked Daisy up, she was really happy, a sign that she had a really good time and was well cared for. I won't hesitate to book Derrick again next time we're in Georgetown, and definitely recommend him to others.
