Jen was awesome. She provided regular updates and put our minds at ease by making our Nellie feel at home. She will be our go-to for boarding in the future.

Our dog loves Cliff and Milo. She is always so excited when we arrive at their home. That sure makes it easier to leave her, and we love the photos and videos Cliff sends us of her.

I had a fabulous time staying with Patty and her family! Doggie Vacation Time is the best. I can’t wait to go back again. And my mom was so happy I had such a great time while she was out of town on a work trip. ♥️ Bailey Sue 🐶🐾 (and her dog mom Beth 👩🏼‍💻)

Jessica was amazing and took great care if our Sumo while we were on vacation. She was a great communicator and sent us updates everyday. It really made our vacation better because we knew Sumo was being well taken care of back home. I will for sure use her service again in the future!

Jack and Anna were a great fit for Ollie and they seemed to get along great! They were detailed oriented with his schedule and patient with him when he didn't want to sleep in his playpen. We will definitely book again.

I’m extremely pleased with the care provided by Megan when she took care of my 2 dogs for 6 days/5 nights while I was out of state on vacation. I had never left them that long with anyone before, and one of mine (Callie) is very attached to me and has some separation anxiety. But my fears were put to rest by Megan’s kind and reassuring manner when we first met and even more so when she sent me updates and several pictures every day to let me know how my pups were doing. She let me know my 2 pups were getting along well with her 2 little dogs, and the pictures reinforced they were making themselves at home. I really appreciated that she has a large fenced in yard for the dogs since mine are used to that. I will definitely use Megan again and am so relieved to know I can leave my dogs with her and they will be well cared for. She is awesome! I highly recommend her.

Sam was amazing with Lucy. Lucy has anxiety issues when she is left with others. We met Sam and her dog Buddy prior. Lucy and Buddy hit it off immediately. Buddy is a very sweet dog. Sam and Lucy got a long during the visit and Lucy was not showing any issues being around them. The weekend Lucy stayed with Sam went awesome. Lucy was spoiled and never had one issue. Sam was great sending pictures and emails with what Lucy was doing. I will use Sam again in a heartbeat. I never worried about Lucy all weekend so that gave me a chance to enjoy my weekend away.

Sammy was wonderful with my girl Lola! She got the kiddie pool out for the pups and Lola had a blast! She also loved Sammy’s dogs and got along well with them. I had no concerns at all with Lola being there as I can tell just how much she really truly loves all dogs. She even made sure Lola was clean and dry once I picked her up after her overnight stay.

I recently hired Maria to watch my dog Jax while I was out of town for 4 days for spring break with my family. Not only she did take care of my pup, but she also sent daily updates with pictures, which gave me peace of mind. Maria's genuine love for animals shines through in her work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of a pet sitter.

My dogs were happy and exhausted when I picked them up from a two-night weekend stay at Lucia's. Lucia sent me a photo each day to let me know my two fur babies were doing well and I had no worries at all while I, too, enjoyed my weekend. Would recommend Lucia. Definitely worth the drive.

Couldn't ask for a better house to leave my girl at. She had a blast with Juno (the house pup) and the constant updates gave us peace of mind. Thank you Brianna. We will definitely leave our girl with you any time we need to.
