What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

"When I first researched places for my dog, I was skeptical because she was recently operated on and I had special needs to be followed. I discussed my needs with Marilyn and she suggested my host Melissa. I went for a meet and greet and knew, from the moment I met her that she would be great for my dog. This was a new experience for me and I was not very trusting, but Melissa made me feel comfortable. She asked many questions and she was willing and compassionate to my needs. When I was away, Melissa emailed me pictures of Bailey and updates of her stay with Melissa and that made me feel at ease and relaxed knowing she was in capable and loving hands. When I picked her up, she was happy and content and I knew my dog was comfortable and well cared for. This experience was absolutely positive I would recommend your services to anyone with a pet. Thanks for a job well done and in your screening methods to insure our pets are left with very competent pet loving people like Melissa. Thank you for making our experience a very positive one and we would now feel free to leave our Bailey with you in the future.

"This was the first time we used Buddy's. It was a last minute thing, because our previous plans for Sugar fell through, and you were very helpful. Sugar moved right in with Fran, as if she had known her all her life. I really felt Sugar was loved by Fran and her family, and couldn't have found a more perfect host family for our precious baby. To have Sugar housed in a kennel would have cost us about the same amount, and Sugar would have probably been left alone in a kennel over night. It put my heart at ease knowing that Sugar was welcomed as part of a family. Thank you so much for providing this service."

"Erin and Randy were fabulous! They took great care of Ollie, exercised him a lot, took photos of his stay with them. They were responsive to our requests and wanted to make as comfortable a stay as possible for Ollie. We will use them again."

New Milford NJ

"I am so thankful for this service. I could tell from the "meet and greet "that Melissa and her family were going to be wonderful with Doli and give her lots of attention. We had left her at a kennel one time and she came home depressed for a few days. When we picked Doli up from Melissa, she was her normal, happy self. I could tell that she was comfortable staying there and I am sure they took great care of her. We will definitely use this service again."

Gillete NJ

"Since this was our first time using Buddy's Sleepovers, we were concerned how this would work out, but our premeeting indicated to us that it would be a great way to leave them with someone else while we were in a "no dog" place. Expect us to do it next year."

Audobon NJ

I just wanted to drop you a few lines to tell you how happy I am with your service. My husband and I were out of the country for more than two weeks recently and retained your service to find a foster family to care for our dog, Buddha. You matched Buddha with Kathy J. of Laurence Harbor. Well, when we returned from our travels and picked Buddha up from Kathy's home, he was clean, bright-eyed and wagging his tail like he was having the best time. Kathy and Buddha really bonded. She even shed tears when I had to bring him home. We fully endorse your service and will contact you whenever we're in need of a loving person or family to temporarily board our precious pooch. Kathy is a lovely, caring and generous woman. She complimented my dog perfectly and they fell in love. She made her home like a second 'home' for him. Buddha was very comfortable in her environment. (Your service is much better than a pet hotel.) Kathy said buddha was well behaved and not only was he a good companion, he was also a good guard dog. We have been telling all of our friends with pets to contact Buddy's Sleepovers whenever they are in need of pet boarding
