About Madhu

We are a pet loving family. My husband and I have been dog lovers forever. We were both raised with dogs, and have been dog owners for the last 6 years. Our 14 year old daughter also loves dogs as much as we do. We have a 5 year old Shih -Tzu. Her name is Bonnie, who is very sweet and loving. She is friendly with people and other dogs. There are not enough words to describe how much love I have for this little fur ball. The first time when i had to leave her behind I cried like a baby. I know how worried i was. It was very stressful for both of us. So i know how u feel when u have to leave your fur babies behind .And i know how good it feels when u know they are well taken care of ,happy and safe .I can assure you your pet will be treated no different than our own while you are away.I will follow exactly the same routine, they are used to at their own home. If needed I can get up at night for bathroom breaks.

I will keep you updated daily on how your pet is doing by sending pictures and texts of all the fun they are having.

Our backyard is fenced and fairly large . Guests will receive plenty of supervised outdoor playtime to keep them happy and active .you can have the peace of mind knowing that your pet will have the freedom to run around and play with our dog Bonnie and my family.

This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and I was a little worried about leaving my dog. Madhu was wonderful! She sent pictures and updates during our vacation which made me feel at ease. My dog was well taken care of. I would highly recommend Madhu.
Madhu was amazing! She sent me regular pictures and updates, and really put me at ease with leaving Coco with her for the first time!
My little Sandy was treated wonderfully! She returned home with an even gentler spirit then when she was dropped off. I feel extremely confident recommending Madhu!Bonnie is a beautiful sweetie too! Sandy will be excited when she visits again!
Madhu kept me updated daily with messages and/or pics. This eased my concerns with leaving Gracie. Madhu showed a genuine concern for the pets in her care. I would choose her again!
Madhu was incredible! She took wonderful care of my sweet pup while I was away and sent me multiple updates. She was also very flexible as I was out of the country and travel plans got a little crazy. We will definitely be using her again. :)
Madhu was awesome!! She definitely is an animal lover and made me feel very comfortable leaving my pup with her!! I would absolutely recommend her and will use her services again!!
The best place for my dog! She has receved lot of love from this caring family. Madhu has done a fantastic job.
I was very pleased with Madhu. I knew right away my dogs would be in good care. She sent me photos all the time. Her house was very nice, big and very clean. I definitely will use her again!!!
Madhu was the best host on DogVacay I have ever had. She and her family treated my 3 dogs with so much love and care. She sent videos and photos daily. My dogs had so much fun with her little Bonnie and was given plenty of play time in the grass as well as cuddle time on the couch. My dogs would want nothing more but to be able to be hosted by Madhu again. Thank you Madhu for a lovely experience.
First off, let us start by saying that Madhu and her family are wonderful!

We had a great time with them! Madhu was very nice to us and we loved her daughter. Bonnie, their shih tzu, was fun to play with, too!

Madhu took pictures of us in the morning and afternoon to send to our family. She also let them know that we were very good and what activities we were doing. We slept very well in our bed we brought from home.

Overall, staying with Madhu was like staying with family. We hope we get to visit her again soon because she was such an awesome host.

We highly recommend Madhu!

Madhu is awesome!!
Madhu is awesome. She truly cares for each dog she keeps. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with her. He gets very spoiled! You will not regret trusting her with your baby!
It was my first time leaving Brutus, but Madhu and her wonderful family made me feel very much at ease. Brutus instantly fell for Madhu and started playing immediately with her sweet dog, Bonnie. They have a beautiful home that is very pet friendly and a huge back yard for lots of running!

While I was away, I received texts and pictures each day with a status report. I missed my flight back to Houston, and Brutus ended up staying an extra night. Madhu was very understanding and accommodating.

Brutus will definitely be staying with Madhu again :)
This was our 2nd time using Madhu and she is an outstanding host. She treats our Scottie Bonnie like one of her "kids"! We were very pleased that she sent texts and pictures almost daily, it set our mind at ease that our baby girl was in good care! Thanks!
Our pups love going to Madhu's, she takes such good care of them, which gives a great peace of mind!
I'm very pleased with the care Tula received from Madhu and her family. She sent me several pictures, I did not worry at all. Thanks for taking good care of my dear Tula! :)
Excellent!!! Madhu was so great! Our Scotty stayed with Madhu and got a little tummy sick during the night, and Madhu stayed up with her, and even "cooked" her chicken and rice the next day for her upset stomach! Above and Beyond! Thanks Madhu
My pups love going to Madhu's. She always takes great care of them. I feel comfortable leaving them with her and have no worries.
Madhu was wonderful with my Merle. She treated him like one of her own. She was great about sending me updates & pictures. I did not worry at all. I can not say enough great things about her!
Madhu graciously boarded my dog, Jesse, with less than 24 hour notice. Jesse is a very active 6 month old Jack Russell/ Chihuahua mixed breed puppy. Madhu welcomed Jesse with warmth and was very attentive to his needs. Both Jesse and I felt like he was in a safe place with a very good caregiver. I would definitely recommend Madhu as a sitter and trust Jesse in her care again.
Thank you Madhu! Madhu and her family made Goldie's stay a wonderful experience. Madhu sent us pictures daily that made our trip so much more easier. As first time dog owners we were so worried about boarding Goldie, and it was so relaxing, not having to worry about Goldie. We will definitely leave Goldie with Madhu again!
Madhu and her family have taken care of Gretta several times, but this is the 1st time for a week. As usual they did a great job, Gretta loves being there.She is sad when she has to leave. Anytime we go any where we will call Madhu. Thanks for taking such good care of our baby.
We were very pleased with the care our 4 month old Shih Tzu puppies received from Madhu! We could tell after our home visit with Madhu that she would take very good care of them and we were able to go on our vacation without any worries.
She sent us several pictures and videos of them playing, which we really enjoyed getting and it confirmed our initial feelings.
Thank you Madhu.... We will use you again!!
I went to visit friends in Houston with my
Baby Biscuit. The family wanted to take kids to Great Wolf Lodge in Dallas, and I was mortified at the thought of considering going with them, and having to leave him. I have never boarded Biscuit, and he has 1 babysitter, which is family ! I started looking at dog vacay & stressed for a week about this, making myself sick !!! I had noticed a few things with Madhu, but her baby having the same car seat as I do, really caught my attention. I want the best for my baby, and a nice car seat with a seatbelt is extremely important. I went to meet her, and her Love for animals showed immediately. Her home is Beautiful, and so clean. Biscuit ran in, went straight to toy box, and started squeeking toys, then proceeded to jump on couch as he does at home, and I knew he would be ok, and safe, and Loved ! Madhu & her husband & daughter went above & beyond what I could have ever expected !!! I received pictures & updates during his stay, and she was always immediate to reply, if I texted her. I am so Grateful for her Love & Kindness to Biscuit & to me & would tell anyone who is considering her, to not look any further, and pray she is not booked, and can babysit for you !!! i hand feed Biscuit & she did the same + so, so, so much more, and I am Extremely Thankful that God led me to her ! I would use her again, if, and when I visit. I truly can not express my gratitude, or give her a Review that is deserving enough for how wonderful she is !!!!!!!
Love, Linda & Biscuit
Madhu and her sweet daughter kept my very anxious maltipoo while we were out of town for Thanksgiving and he had a blast! She sent me pictures everyday and updates on how he was doing. He usually comes home after boarding barely eating and sleeping a lot but this time he has been completely normal. I am totally amazed! I will definitely be using Madhu from here on!
Madu was awesome!! This was the first time ever using this site and I love it!! She was very nice and Pollo took to her and her daughter quick. With the updates and pictures I could feel at ease knowing he was fine. Thanks Madu
Madhu was a great host. She posts pictures of your dog daily.
If you choose to send Madhu a text or an email to inquire about your "little one", she responds in a reasonable amount of time :-)
It appears she tries to schedule dogs that she thinks will get along. Like a match making thing. LOL
If that makes sense.
Environment is very inviting and nuturing. Yard is large enough for animals to have playtime. And neighborhood has sidewalks for those dog walks. Sometimes sidewalks are important to some dog owners For me it is not.
Overall, Madhu strives to do her best (and then some) when watching your dog. Hey, that is enough for me.
I would recommend her to others.
I give her a rating of 10 (plus)..
I left my dog Millie overnight with Madhu for the first time. I was a little anxious as this was the only time she had been to her home since the MeetNGreet. But Madhu was very good about reassuring me about Millie and sent me a picture and update on her and responded to my text messages very promptly. She seems very warm and caring and Millie took a liking to her instantly. Her home is clean and inviting and Millie looked very comfortable. Her daughter also played affectionately with Millie. We will definitely be back.
This was our first time using DogVacay and using Madhu as our sitter, and we are extremely pleased. Madhu was absolutely amazing with our three dogs.
Madhu's home is very open, clean and with a good size yard which makes it perfect for small dogs. (She has one small dog Bonnie.) She pays close attention to any special requests regarding feeding times, walks, special needs which will make your pet feel as comfortable as possible. Madhu is also very flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, which makes life a lot easier when traveling.
Receiving daily updates and pictures are very comforting as well. Thanks again Madhu!!
We were leaving our little rescue for the very first time. Madhu was so incredibly warm, friendly and made us feel confident in putting our fur baby in her care. When we met for the first time, it was evident her love for dogs and her home was clean and inviting. While we were gone, Madhu kept us up to date with daily texts and pictures of how our baby was doing. She followed our baby's schedule and even let her sleep with her. We were so worried about how our baby would do but Madhu has the "magic touch." Our baby did extremely well in Madhu's care and surprised us all. When we picked our baby up, she was so happy!! If we go away again, I will DEFINITELY use Madhu!! She was beyond excellent!!! Absolutely LOVE her!!!
WONDERFUL FAMILY for our dogs.

Madhu sent pictures everyday to show my dogs at play. Big, nice grassy backyard for the pups and very clean home.

My dogs are sad coming home because they had such a great time at Madhu's house playing with her dog Bonnie and being loved by her husband and daughter.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her and will definitely use her service in the future for my 3 dogs.
Madhu & her family are great, Gretta loves them, they take such great care of her. She is so tired from playing so much. Gretta looks forward to the next time she gets to play.
Madhu and her family took great care of our little girl, it is such a relief to know she is in good hands. I'm so excited to have someone I can count on. Thank U so much . We will definitely set up another play time.
