Our two golden doodles loved their long weekend stay with Matt and Cooper (Matt’s adorable and gentle dog). Matt sent me lots of updates and pictures throughout their stay. We’ve already booked our next stay with Matt and Cooper and I’m just so glad to have a reliable and caring home for my dogs.

Gisell was great! She kept constant communication and updated with photos. She was very flexible and sweet. When I picked up my dog he looked at me like I was a stranger so I know he was comfortable. He was even whining because he wanted to stay. He came back full of energy like he always is. If he’s happy I’m happy. I’ll definitely be using her again.

I could not be more impressed with Cyndi! My dog Finley absolutely loved her, we got so many pictures, I did not worry about him for a single moment. We have a long stay coming up next week, and doing a “trial night” was exactly what I needed to calm my nerves!

Amy was fantastic for our dog Daisy during a 1 week trip we took in April 2023. Her communication before and during the stay were excellent, and Amy kept our dog on schedule for the variety of medicines that she needed (during meals and at other points throughout the day). That gave us the peace of mind to focus on enjoying our trip without worrying about the safety or comfort of our family dog. Thank you Amy!
