My name is Yongle. I am living in one of the dog-friendly high rise buildings in river north. I am currently studying at Loyola University Chicago for my bachelor's degree.

Yongle is great. He is very accommodating. He has watched our dog Baba many times now and she is always happy to be with Yongle.
Herbie had a wonderful time with Yongle, we got regular updates on how he was doing.
Yongle is great! Im almost afraid to praise him too much because I want him available when I need him next :). He was constantly sending texts and photos of our dog (as we asked him to do). He administered meds every morning as we asked him. Our dog had such a great time with him, I almost feel like he was bummed to come home. He really put our mind at ease during our travel as we were travelling with our newborn for the first time. He is really a great caretaker and a great person! Thanks Yongle!!
Yongle was super kind and took great care of Cuba. He texted me pictures everyday, took her for walks, and Cuba certainly liked him. I really recommend him.
My dog Sadie had A BLAST with Yongle and his dog. I picked her up expecting her to be all excited like when I come home at night but I could tell she was a little sad to leave her new friends! Yongle was extremely responsive, sent lots of pictures and treated my girl like his own! I would highly recommend!
Yongle is great! We totally trust him with our dog, and we truly value his genuine kindness, flexibility and professionalism.
This was our first time using DogVacay and our experience with Yongle was great! He was incredibly responsive from the beginning when we set up the meet and greet until the time we picked up Simon. During the vacay, Yongle sent many updates, including photos, which made us feel very at ease! Simon came home happy and exhausted! I would definitely recommend Yongle and we will be repeat customers!
Yongle was very responsive everytime I contacted him and my dog Charlie had a great time on his vacay!
Yongie did an outstanding job taking care of my dog. My pup came home clean, energized and very happy. I could tell by his temperament that he had an amazing time. I also received daily pictures and updates that ultimately gave me a peace of mind.

He is a true dog lover. 5 Stars! Highly recommend.
This was Percy's first stay using Dog Vacay and he had a great time with Yongle's Miniature Schnauzer. He's a little cautious in new situations but Yongle made us feel at ease about leaving him over night. Yongle replied promptly and was easy to set up a Meet & Greet.
Yongle was so accommodating with our last minute request, and really great with our baby! Upon meeting him, it was obvious he's a dog lover and that's a big deal to us. He was very responsive and easy to communicate with and Rory came home happy and relaxed. We are very grateful to have found him. Thanks Yongle!
Yongle was great! My dog Oscar had an amazing time. It was a luxurious vacation for him staying a great spot in Streeterville. He was very well taken care of.
I wasn't sure of the pickup time and Yongle was very patient and accommodating. He's also really good with Jax so we'll definitely contact him again.
The stay seemed to go wel!
Youngle is an amazing doggy host. He took care of our sweet Tiffany twice and every time he treated her as his own puppy.
Yongle was great. He took care of Chia as his own. He constantly communicated with us (me and my wife) and sent us pictures and videos. We really recomend him, he loves dogs and knows how important they are for you. He was responsible with all her needs, highly trustworth!
This was the first experience with DogVacay and we were impressed! The whole process from selecting a host, to paying for the service, to our initial visit with our host Yongle was excellent along with very comforting! The value received from having "our precious Lab" loved and cared for 24/7 was well worth the reasonable cost of this service! Prior to finding this service, we actually paid more for 3 visits/30 minutes a day .....with nearly any except use or bonding time so the decision to use DogVacay was a complete win -win situation for our lab and for us while we were on vacation. Our host Yongle sent a number of pictures of our lab Desi throughout our vacation and assured us she was having a good time! We will definitely request Yongle to care for Desi for our next vacation. Thank you!!!

This is Pepe's second stay with Yongle, he did a great job again taking care of my dog while I was out of town. Thanks Yongle!
Yongle was a kind and nice person. My dog seemed to have lots of fun during his stay with him. The only hiccup was he got sick from bacterial infection towards the end of his stay.
Yongle did a fine job caring for my dog, Pepper. She trained him very quickly to give into her begging and gained a few pounds! ;-) He was very accommodating and caring. I will use his services again.
Yongle was great! He accommodated our early drop off time and sent us tons of photos of Emma! We knew she was in good hands with him and will absolutely use Yongle again the next time we travel.
Yongle was a great host. I had to find a dog sitter at the last minute and he agreed to pick Jax up that same evening. Jax had a great time and I could tell by all the pics Yongle sent that he spent a lot of time at the dog park and hanging out with Yongle's dogs. I would definitely let Jax stay with Yongle again.
Yongle was absolutely a terrific pet host and took great care of Summer during his first Dog Vacay stay in Chicago! He was SUPER accommodating and flexible to my schedules! As a professional photographer, he sent me a bunch of nice pictures and made me feel relieved. I’m sure he is the best host I’ve ever known.
I'm so happy with Yongle, he is just amazing. He went out of his way to accommodate my situation, including a last-minute emergency trip I had to make with few minutes advance notice, with the best attitude. He also sent me updates with pictures of my dog Pepe while I was away, gave him special food (because he is not a good eater) and toys. I turned to DogVacay for a more home-like environment and I believe my dog truly felt like home playing with his dogs at his place and at the park near his house.Thanks again Yongle!
