About Matthew

I grew up around all types of animals my entire life. I prefer dogs as I have 2 of my own. Your pup can join our pack to follow in the fun and play we all enjoy. I have been working with animals for most of my life. I have assisted along side a couple vet techs and a mobile vet prior to moving to NC in 2008.

Your pet will feel right at home. None of my clients are kenneled or crated unless it's requested by the owner. Your pet will enjoy full free run of my large fenced in yard and house. I live in a quiet development where dog walks/runs are calm and therapeutic.

My wife is an avid animal lover and treats all animals as if they were hers. My two boys enjoy playing with all animals and treat them with the utmost care.

Don't send your furry child to a kennel locked up when they can come and join our pack.

I like to meet all dogs prior to their stay.
If you are booking for a vacation and see I'm not available on the calendar, please contact me to check if I have room. My wife works from home so your pup will have round the clock supervision.

What a great experience. I'm kinda protective of my fur-baby, so when my boarding plans fell through at the last moment I had no choice but to reluctantly looked for options. I'm so glad that I found DogVacay...and more specifically, Matt and his family! He sent pictures, he answered my myriad of questions and he put my mind at ease. I highly recommend this host!
Jagger's daycare visit with Matt & his family went great! Jagger has totally accepted them as his home-away-from-home. The opportunity for him to be around children and also other dogs has provided him with socialization he doesn't get otherwise and it has been really good for him. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased. Matt and Laura are terrific!
For Chloe's second stay and a longer visit than than the first...I couldn't be more thrilled because I know she has found her 2nd home!

Matthews usual attentiveness and pack leader mentality keeps Chloe physically and mentally.

Matt is always making sure to keep me visually connected with daily emails & pictures of her of my fav things!

I'm sure Chloe can't wait for her next visit with Matt & his family. Can't thank him enough for making Chloe a part of his pack!
Where do I begin? Being an overly protective mom of a spoiled, three and a half year old Pitbull, I've never been away from for more than a few hours, to say I was a bit apprehensive about leaving Chloe under somebody else's care, was an understatement. Not too mention, very few people truly understand this breed.

After speaking to my friend, who runs her own DogVacay in Canada, she held my hand as we began to search for a place that not only would give me peace of mind but also be enjoyable for Chloe. I sent my first email and was a bit taken aback when I was told "pitbulls" were not accepted.

Then I found Matthew.

I knew it was kismet when I saw he was only 15 mibs. from my home. Knew it was destiny when Matt called me, immediately, telling me about his own Pit.

Not only did he put me at immediate ease but answered my barrage of questions like Cesar at a press conference.

Our meet & greet was scheduled! Now I really became nervous. How would Chloe behave? How would I behave? What if he didn't like us? All senseless questions when we first met Matthew.

Ci liked him immediately, good sign. Chloe liked him immediately. ..great sign.

As you can see, this could quickly become a novel, so, I will get to the point. your dogs here! There is not one negative comment I can give you about Matthew and his beautiful family.

Stay tuned, as future visits will ensue.
I would recomend this family to anyone in need of a place to board their dog. I just picked up my pup today and she had so much fun that she didn't want to leave! Matthew also sent me several updates including even a video of my dog playing which is above and beyond what a lot of other people would do. He and his wife were both very knowledgable about dogs and seemed very passionate about taking care of my Ellie, she will definitely be visiting them again in the future whenever I need a sitter. I can't say enough great things about this family!
