What real parents are saying

"House of Dogs is the greatest! We moved here from Los Angeles about a year and a half ago and were lucky enough to find House of Dogs through a recommendation and we are so grateful. Having boarded our two dogs there on six occasions, I can say with certainty that Kevin (the owner) is so kind, gentle and attentive to our dogs (and, to us!!). He is always sending updates and pictures of our dogs and in his hands we know they are well taken care of. Highly recommend!"

"Kevin was amazing! His home is nice and his way with our Allie was calming and reassuring. She has anxiety when we leave her so it was also nice to have a safe environment. He took such good care of her and sent us pictures every day which made us crazy dog owners so happy!!! Thanks so much for letting us have a relaxing vacay Kevin! We knew that Allie was well taken care of."

"We just picked up Maui from her stay with Kevin and she is very happy and well-cared for. Kevin was conscientious, loving and a great care-giver to our Maui. We received several pictures and updates of Maui during our vacation. It was comforting to know Maui was in good hands."

"I've known Kevin and his family for over 6 years! My 1 year old pup has stayed with him on multiple occasions and I'm confident he is in good hands when he's with him. They are responsible, dependable, flexible, and most of all patient (my dog can be a bit of a handful with other people). I get pictures throughout the day when he's with him. I will always be using him for my doggie daycare and boarding needs!."

"Kevin, is an exceptional kind hearted human being who truly adores your family member while in his care. He was careful to ensure that he followed our pet’s feeding and walking routines which is very important given they are puppies and follow a strict dietary and walking schedule. We loved his funny videos of the dogs playing and eating and have already booked future stays. Our bulldogs Louis and Sunny are looking forward to their next visit. Kevin, you are the best!"

"As a fairly new dog owner, I was so nervous to leave my mini aussie Banksy a little longer than I ever have before. But Kevin & House of Dogs made me feel like I was leaving him with my own family. I love the daily updates of Banksy playing in the big backyard and getting his socialization on with other dogs. He came home super exhausted which is how I know he definitely had a blast! Can't wait to use House of Dogs the next time I am out of town!"

"My pomeranian Tatertot is a regular of House of Dogs and I am proud to say so. He enjoys his stay each time whether it be for a weekend or a few weeks. How Tot reacts to whenever he sees Kevin; I know Tot is getting all the love and comfort he needs."

"We absolutely adore Kevin at House of Dogs! We've been using his services for a couple of years now and my dog still jumps with excitement at the sight of him. Kevin is great with communication and always sends timely updates with photos or videos and they always show my dog happy and active. My dog tends to be very hyper and easily excited and Kevin is so patient and loving with him. He's a large dog, so someone with the amount of patience as him is hard to find. I can always count on my dog to return home happy and exhausted from lots of play and exercise!"

Kevin is the greatest! He watched our rowdy, fun-loving Old English Sheepdog Eli for over a week and Eli was legitimately sad to leave. Eli needs a lot of exercise and was able to run around all day in the basement and backyard (he is still recovering and is going on day two of sleeping all day). Eli can be pretty finicky with his food / other dogs/ walking on a leash, but Kevin did wonderfully with him. We are excited to find someone we can trust and definitely plan on booking with Kevin in the future!
