I can't say enough great things about our experience with Alyssa! Although we were only out of town for one day we had several updates, pictures and videos of how they were doing. I'm sure they had the best time because when we got home they were wore out from playing so much. We will most definitely be using your services again. THANK YOU so much Alyssa for taking such great care of our fur ...

This was the first time I have ever “boarded” my dog and I was concerned because I have heard terrible stories. If she could talk, I think she would say she had a great time. Alyssa and her family were wonderful. She sent me several pictures each day and let me know how things were going. It really wasn’t like boarding, it was a doggy vacation. I will definitely use Alyssa again and have ...

When Alyssa watches your pet

I have a big fenced in yard the dogs can play and run around in. There are also a lot of toys to play with inside and outside. I have a big fan outside on the deck for when it is hot outside when they want to play outside, I also have a kiddie pool the dogs like to play in. Myself and my kids love to play with the dogs, take them on walks and just have fun! Your dog will have its own vacation while you are away :)
