OMG!!! I love this service! Such a relief after I found someone like Misty to take care our baby, he's wonderful and professional! Buddy love it!! We can give him 10+stars !!! Great job!
Cooper came home happy and tired. We will be using them again!
Sammy had so much fun with Shawn! I would highly recommend their services! Thank you for taking great care of my baby boy ! See you soon Carla
Shawn and Misty took great care of our pup! We were nervous to leave her for over a week at age 7 months, but they sent regular photo and video updates to reassure us that she was safe and happy. They are also very responsive to messages. Will use them as hosts again!

Wonderful
Trixie had a blast at Shawn and Misty's house! She seemed very comfortable at their home during our meet and greet and judging by the great pictures Shawn sent us during her visit she thoroughly enjoyed herself. As teachers trying to prepare for the new school year we also appreciated her being tired out from her busy day and sleeping the evening away. Trixie will absolutely be back again at Shawn and Mistys'!

Our two dogs had a wonderful stay with Shawn and Misty. We received photos every day and had peace of mind knowing our fur babies were safe and comfortable. Shawn answered my emails and texts right away. I wouldn't hesitate to leave our pups with them again!

Tango had a fantastic time with Shawn and Misty while we were gone! They made the entire process, from first inquiry, to visit, to actual stay, smooth and easy for us. This was the first time we'd left our dog since we adopted him 1.5 years ago so we were slightly, lol, okay, REALLY nervous about leaving him. Shawn was incredibly patient as I walked him through my front and back typed sheet of likes/dislikes, etc. I sincerely appreciated him letting me go through it item by item even though they've done this many times before! We left feeling good because I'd covered everything.

While we were gone, we received regular updates, including pictures, of how Tango was doing in their home. That made it easy to relax knowing he was just fine. The pick up was also as smooth as the rest of the process! When we arrived, Shawn had everything neatly packaged up for him so it was quick and easy! I must admit that Tango seemed a little depressed after being home! I think he had so much fun he was a little disappointed we came back. ;) He's back to himself now but I have no doubt he'd be eager to go back. Thank you Shawn for taking such great care of Tango!!

We just got Mali 3 weeks ago and she is just a puppy. We were not expecting to leave her so soon but we had to go out of town for our grandsons christening. Shawn and Misti were great. From the first meeting that I had with Shawn, I felt comfortable leaving Mali with them. Received pictures and updates and I knew she was in good hands. I will definitely use them again when we go out of town. Thank you for taking such good care of our fur baby. Ann Marie & Peter.

We are so lucky to have found Misty and Shawn to look after Hamish for us. Its great to have a welcoming place for him to stay when we travel so much. He always is so excited to go stay with them, can't say enough about them - amazing :)
Shawn and Misty were the perfect hosts! My pup had a blast on his vacation.
We are thrilled with Misty P!! They sent us lots of pics and updates. The hosts catered to our little dog's quirks (we all know know the little pups have them!). Most importantly, our dog took a real shine to them and the loving home environment they provide. We wholeheartedly recommend them and are already anticipating using them again.

What a wonderful experience! I am so glad to have found Shawn. He went out of his way to make sure Princess was well cared for and to provide us peace of mind that she was safe and happy. He provided daily pictures and communication via text and responded within minutes to any questions I had. He was very accommodating with last minute changes to drop off and pick up times. I was hesitant to leave Princess with another dog that was boarding, but Shawn did a great job of introducing them slowly so she wasn't overwhelmed, and that I was at ease leaving her. I highly recommend this sitter!

We researched quite a bit before choosing our host (one of our dogs is blind & takes daily meds so we wanted to be comfortable & confident with who would be caring for them). After meeting Shawn, we knew our pack would be in good hands. We received several updates and photos throughout the week and it was clear our pups had a great time on Vacay. We have already recommended him to our friends and would definitely use him again.

Shawn is wonderful!! My dog is a high energy pup and a lot of sitters have issues because she doesn't just chill during the day. She wants to play fetch and run. Shawn kept her busy and eased my fears with constant photos. So, if you have a crazy dog like me, look no farther than Shawn and Misty! They're amazing!!!!

VERY happy to have found Misty and Shawn for our little girl Zoe! Was very nice to see how well cared for and happy she was in pictures and when we picked her up. Thanks!!
My dog, Rocky, had a great vacation! I received pictures everyday with updates on sleeping, playing and eating. He loved playing with Misty's dog, Lyla. When we wanted to go to downtown Disney one more time, they accommodated us by being flexible with times for pickup. Would have him stay there again.
Thanks guys!

In March, I had to take a last minute trip and Misty (and her awesome roommate) took care of my little fur babies. They had a great place for the dogs with an amazing backyard. They also kept me informed on how they were doing and sent pictures. I would highly recommend!

My Buddy was safe and happy with Shawn & Misty which eased my mind. I was was kept informed with details, pictures and videos. I highly recommend them and will use them for my next DogVacay!
Our digs loved staying here. Next time we are in the area, they will definately stay here!!!
Spike enjoyed his daycare visit and can't wait to go back. We were so thrilled with Spike's care and loved getting pictures of him having fun.
5 stars are really not enough stars for Misty and Shawn! I only met Shawn as Misty was at work when we dropped off and picked up MacGregor. Shawn made us feel at ease from the moment we stepped in the door! I was very hesitant to leave MacGregor anywhere as he gets very anxious when we are not around. Shawn sent lots of pictures and updates and we could see that MacGregor was doing just fine! I truly enjoyed my vacation because I didn't have to worry about MacGregor. I am definitely going to use them again! They also have a great fenced backyard!

So we were so worried to leave our fur baby with a couple that we barely knew but went with past reviews and comments. Needless to say, Simba was incredibly taken care of! Misty and Shawn sent us day to day pics of him and what he was doing that day! They welcomed him into their own as if he was one of theirs! We have already booked 2 more reservations! We highly recommend them to everyone! Thanks so much, see you in July! Sue & Ryan Burr

I have a wheaten terrier who is lovely, gentle and good fun, but scared of everything and everyone apart from us, I needed to find a good alternate to boarding kennels, as she was so unhappy there.
Shawn went out of his way to make her feel at home, and sent constant pictures and updates during her stay to reassure me
I was 100% happy with the whole experience and cannot thank them enough

Our experience with Misty and Shawn was absolutely outstanding. Eddie, our Yorkie is eight months old and has never been away from home. When my wife and I decided to take a Disney Cruise with other family members we had to find a temporary home for Ed. As possible solutions, we visited a couple local kennels and quickly determined we could not let our boy in one of those concentration camps. He a member of our family for pete's sake and seriously would you drop mom off there? So we searched the Internet and found Vacay and quickly narrowed our search to the home of Misty, Shawn and Layla, their personal K9 family member, who I candidly believe Eddie became very attached to. We stopped by to visit Misty and Shawn a week prior to our sailing date as we were not interested in any last minute surprises, and left feeling very comfortable. When we dropped Ed off the morning of our cruise, everything went like clockwork. We were all greeted with warmth and friendliness, we brought along all Ed's gear, food, bed, toys, harness list of commands he understood ect. emergency contact numbers and so on. We were provided with frequent pictures of Ed's activities and conduct whIle away which was very comforting. Ed had a wonderful experience, met some new k9 pals and Mary and I had a stress free vacation as well. We will personally use this sitter again, we have already recommended them to friends!!!

Our pup Ollie had a fantastic weekend getaway with Misty and Lila! We loved that Misty sent cute pictures and videos of the puppies playing, so we knew that he was happy. When we picked him up, he didn't want to leave! He is usually nervous about being left, so that says a lot. Thank you so much!

Second stay and very pleased. Gus always has a good time. Would definitely leave him with Misty and Shawn again.
Sophie had a great time. She came home happy and tired. The pictures sent were a great relief. I will use Misty and Shawn again.
Mason had a wonderful time I would highly recommend their services. I will certainly be booking again.
Gus was very well taken care of. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing he was happy and not stuck in a kennel all day. We'll definitely be taking Gus back to stay with Misty.
Awesome experience! Thank you so much for taking great care of Titan for us :D
This being our first time, with the boys staying in unfamiliar territory, I was a little concerned. However, they took to Shawn and Lyla quickly, making it much easier for me to leave. They both slept on the way home, which has never happened before, so I think they had a really good day.

We have an overnight stay planned soon and today's stay eases my mind.

Thank you Misty, Shawn, and Lyla!

Misty, Shawn and their fury little girl Lyla, took care of our Berlin like he was their own. When we picked up Berlin he was happy and acted as if he was not away from home. Highly recommend Misty and Shawn. This will definitely be a home away from home.

Our pup had a wonderful time! They took great care of him and made him feel right at home! We are repeat customers now, knowing he will be safe and happy while we are out of town.
Really nice experience. Would definitely use them again! Thank you!!!
Great experience, very easy to work with. I really appreciate the care they give my dog Joey. R
I was a bit nervous leaving our dog with someone for the very first time while we went on vacation. Shawn relieved my concerns the same evening I dropped Seina off. Shawn messaged to tell me she had calmed significantly after I left. They provided amazing care for our 13 year old baby who had an unfortunate past of abuse and neglect that has left her especially fearful & scared of men in particular. We appreciated that Shawn made the extra effort to get to know her!
I received photo and video updates during Seina's eight day stay as well as personal messages that let me know how she was doing. One of the pictures even captured her smiling!
I would most definitely leave Seina with Shawn, Misty and their dog Layla again.

Misty was great! Bolt ran right in and made himself at home. She sent pictures every day showing what he was up to which is a wonderful touch. She treated him like part of the family. We will definitely recommend and use Misty again!
As most first timers, I was a bit nervous leaving my dog with someone while I went on vacation. Misty and Shawn eased my concerns right from the start. They provided amazing service and care for my rambunctious pup. I received photo and video updates during his stay as well as personal messages that let me know how he was doing. They were very flexible with pick up and drop off times. My dog no doubt had an excellent time with Misty, Shawn, and their dog Layla. I will definitely be using their services again in the future.

We had our little english cocker spaniel Chelsea looked after by Misty and when I picked her up she was happy. She was also happy when she came back home with us, which means that she has been looked after well. Thank you Misty and shawn for giving me back a happy puppy.

The best! No one takes better care of our dog than Matt and Misty. Thank you.
Hamish had an amazing weekend as always. Misty always looks after him so well, he didn't want to get into the car and go home!!! Thanks as always!!!
Hamish had a wonderful first stay with Misty, he was treated as part of the family. We will have no hesitation in having him stay with Misty again. It's so nice to find somebody who we can trust completely with our crazy puppy! We received regular updates and photos which was a lovely touch. Thanks so much!!!

It was wonderful as usual!

Max was anxious to get out of the car: that is always a good sign he is happy to be there!

Misty always sends pictures of Max, showing him in various "happy and active stages."

I am always confident and content when Max is in their home. I can really enjoy myself, and NOT feel guilty, because Max is on vacation too!!

Misty and Sean were great! It was our first time leaving our dogs with anyone other than family so we were a bit worried. Misty did an amazing job of sending texts and photos so we could see they were doing just fine. She really put us at ease. They were happy and excited when we picked them up. We will definitely leave them with her anytime we need someone to care for them again.

This was the first time I've ever used anything like this and it was a very pleasant experience for me and my pet. Sophie my one year old Havanese was treated as part of Misty and Matts family. She had literally never been around other dogs and was a bit afraid in the beginning but by day two she was running around and playing. I really appreciated that they kept me updated with text, photos and video on how Sophie was doing in those 4 days. I will be reserving them again and I highly recommend them to anyone who lives their pup :)

Max had another great visit! Thank you so much!
Max had an awesome day! While we had some fun at Disney, he was making new friends and playing. Thank you so much for taking great care of him and answering all our questions prior to his visit!
So nice and flexible. Great experience!
Matthew and Misty were extremely accommodating to my dog Sparky from the very beginning. During his stay with them, I received frequent updates and they answered any question that I had. Thanks to them I was virtually worry-free during my trip.
Outstanding "care giver" she is much, much more than a sitter! She and her husband really "care, love and nurture" your pet. I always feel very comfortable and confident that my Max will be treated as one of the family!
Matthew and Mindy were very good to deal with. Flexible in our arrival and pick-up times. Did a great job with our dog. Highly recommended.
This was our Westie's second stay with Matthew and Misty, and it was an extended one for five weeks! Our Westie loves staying and playing with Clyde, Lyla, and the family, and we rested peacefully knowing she was loved and cared for like family. Our Westie returned to us happy and well adjusted with no unusual behaviors. This is a great second home for our Westie, and we so appreciate everything Matthew and Misty do to love our Westie in our absence.

Our communication with Matthew began more than two months prior to our reservation. Since we were travelling to FL and unable to do a meet and greet prior to booking, we appreciated Matthew's attentiveness to our questions and concerns. Upon arrival at their home, Matthew's wife put us immediately at ease by allowing us to meet their two dogs, to see the accommodations and fenced backyard, and by listening carefully as we reviewed our written instructions for Misty's care. We were completely at peace when we left their home and were delighted to receive regular text updates and photos throughout the week. Upon retrieval at the end of the week, all of Misty's belongings were packed and ready to go, and Misty easily settled back in to our care. Matthew and his wife are clearly experienced dog lovers and caregivers. We would definitely utilize their services again.

Matt was great as usual. He and Misty are always happy to keep Fuego and he always come home happy, safe and sound.
It was fabulous AS USUAL!! :-))

Matthew and Misty's home is my dog's SECOND home!!

He is loved and well cared for there. He always returns home clean and happy!!

They send pictures and updates which greatly warm my heart.

I feel TOTAL confidence and trust when Max is "boarding" at their home.

A GREAT RELIEF off my mind, especially with such an extended stay! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! :-))

Buster had a great time this week! The house is perfect, and a beautiful fenced in backyard. They are caring owners, and the resident dogs are calm and sweet. We plan on having Buster vacay again with them very soon.
Another fabulous stay for my dog Max with Matthew and his lovely wife!!

Max loves being there, and I have great comfort knowing he is being so lovingly cared for along with their dogs.

I really appreciate Matt & Misty sending updates and photos of Max during his stay! They make my heart sing! I share with my fellow travelers and it spreads the word of your agency!!

We will definitely use Matt again.
Second year we left Buddy with Matthew and his wife while we were on vacation. Buddy can be a little hard to handle but everything went well.

They sent us pictures of Buddy while we were gone which makes us feel more comfortable that Buddy is ok.

Looking forward to our next vacation and Buddy will be staying there.

Very nice people with nice dogs who got along great with my Charly !! He was so happy with them he did not even miss me !! Thanks again for taking care of my baby
Gretchen ran right to him and never looked back, we knew if she was comfortable then we would not have to worry. She did well and did not seem like she wanted to come home. We recommend that you try Matt !!
Our 8-month old puppy Cookie had a wonderful time with Matthew and Misty! She was comfortable from the moment we arrived, and was happy and healthy when we picked her up. We especially enjoyed the pictures and updates Matthew texted over the weekend. We are all looking forward to another Dog Vacay again soon!

Matthew and his wife Misty were wonderful hosts! I made a very last minute booking and they were so accommodating. As soon as I met them I was very comfortable with leaving my dog with them and he seemed to have had a great time. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitley be calling them again next time i'm in the Dr. Philips area.

Loved having King stay with Matthew and Misty while we vacationed in Disney! They sent pics and kept me updated which put my mind at ease. Would recommend them 100%!!
I enjoyed the flexibility and convenience, and of course the care, of having our 10 week old puppy be cared for by Matthew over the weekend.
Great puppy host! Matt worked with us on short notice and was really great. Our two dogs had a blast, much much much better than traditional boarding. Our one normally nervous dog seemed comfortable and happy when we picked them up, playing with toys and laying on the couch. DO IT.

Matthew and Misty were great!!! Very friendly and sent a photo of Jax having fun while on vacay. We will definitely have Jax stay with them again.
Cosmo had a blast and was exhausted when he got home from playing with Layla all the time. Thank you Matthew and Missy!! Nancy
Matthew's home is Max's "second" home!

My dog, LOVES his home and his dogs!

It is a joy to return from a trip and find my pet has been given much love and care!!

He does NOT want to leave! He wants to keep playing with their dogs. He is always clean and happy. I am so content when he is there!

Matt and his wife are VERY CARING people!!

Thank you much.....

We couldn’t have asked for a better first experience for Jessie with DogVacay. When we entered into Matthew and Misty’s home, Jessie was quite comfortable with her surroundings. I mentioned to Misty I would love to see Jessie with the other dogs so we went outside to meet them. Jessie was happy and appeared to be at home. We were excited for her to be left in their care and with the other dogs. A couple days later we received a picture of Jessie along with a text. The text said Jessie was having a good time and doing well! When visiting Orlando in the future, we would hope to be able to use Matthew and Misty.

It was great! I forwarded Max's information before our arrival.

Matt and his wife both had read and understood Max's history, habits and my concerns.

They sent pictures and updates. Max had fun with their dogs.

Max was in great shape and disposition when I returned. Great couple and home. Will use again!

Cosmo did awesome and was exhausted when he got home. Thank you Matt & Missy!!!
They took such good care of our dog Buddy we were worried he would not want to come home. We definitely would use them again. So much better than having your dog in a cage for four days. Thanks again Matthew.
We felt very comfortable leaving our dog, Cookie, with Matthew. He was very attentive to the special needs that she required with her facial paralysis. His home was very dog friendly and setup so that we did not have to worry about her causing any trouble. We also were grateful for the updates and pictures we got while she was there. Thank you so much for taking care of our girl, she had a great time!

Cosmo had a great time with Matthew and the gang!! Thank you for an awesome experience! :)
Max was his same old self when we picked him up. Seemed to have a good time. I was more concerned for Mathew because Max is a very active dog and always wants to play.
Everything was great. We will definitely use Matthew again.
