About Francesca

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Francesca! I'm home-full time and able to provide your dog lots of attention. I am a mother of two boys, Ian and Will, who are 17 and 12 years old, respectively. We are all big dog lovers and are excited to welcome your dog into our home. We also have a 8 year old Australian Shepherd named Bleu. We live in a 3 bedroom home with a 3/4 acre backyard. We have a doggie door, so the dogs can go out when they need to. Due to the drought, we have stopped watering the grass, but it is still a great place for doggies to play! We have a 6 foot wooden fence to keep the dogs safe. We live in a rural area so there are plenty of places to explore. We have had lots of experience sitting dogs of all sizes. I always hated leaving my pets and would constantly worry when I went on trips. At least with kids you can tell them you will be back! I am so glad that I can help you out and ease your worry while you're away!

My dog, Duchess, stayed for two days and two nights with Francesca and her two sons. She communicated well with me and sent me some pictures as well as text to let me know how Duchess was doing while I was away.
I would have no hesitation to have Duchess stay with her and her family in the future.

This was Toby's first experience with Dog Vacay, and it was great! Francesca was incredibly quick to reply to my initial contact and answered all of my anxious-dog-parent questions almost immediately. Her lovely, polite sons met me when I dropped Toby off, and did a great job introducing him to their sweet dog Bleu (my guy is sometimes nervous about meeting other dogs). They made me feel confident about leaving my pup there and told me all about how good their mom is with dogs. I received several updates (and a really gorgeous photo that's now my Dog Vacay profile pic!) over the next day and a half, and picked up a happy Toby at the end. They handled his separation anxiety really gently, and weren't upset when he made a mess in the house out of nervousness. We will definitely be back! Thank you, Francesca, Ian and Will!

Our two pups loved their stay. From the introduction through their final day stay was spectacular.
Our host was absolutely caring and kept us fully informed with photos through out the stay and showed us the fun they were having.
Simply fantastic...

Biscuit was well loved and came home happy. We'll definitely use Francesca again.
Helped us out with a last minute booking and was very responsive with respect to questions and status update requests regarding Dali's care.
My wife and I had a last minute schedule change and needed someone to watch our boy. Francesca bailed us out big time and took great care of Axle for us!
Francesca had great communication with us as we were out of town. Elliot seemed to have a fun and safe time!!! Will be booking again. :)

Francesca was terrific! I felt very confident that my girl was well taken care of.
Francesca took care for my two dogs for two nights. She was kind and gentle with my dogs and sends me updated text and my babies' photos. I highly recommend her services.
Francesca was a great host to my dog Ginger. She sent me photos during his stay and was always quick to respond to my messages.
Francesca was great with Sadie! I never worried about her once. I got a picture and/or an update every day. I could tell that she got lots of love while I was away and had a blast playing with the other dogs.
This is our first time and we are very satisfied with the care of our Lexi received.
Our dog lovebirds staying with Francesca and he was very comfortable She was a good communicator and made us feel comfortable leaving our dog with her for a few nights.
My dogs loved the big backyard and playing with the resident dog. Will book again!
Francesca took very good care of our rescue mutt, Kita. She sensed that our dog has separation anxiety and kept her feeling safe and secure at all times. We received regular photo updates and texts - very reassuring to us. The booking process was easy - she responded to our text and emails quickly. Francesca is knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors and she gave us some practical advice on how to deal with Kita's separation anxiety. We would go back to her again. Thank you!
