About Me

Here at Sit and Stay, we love dogs so much, our son wants to be one! We are capable of taking care of all dogs, big and small! We live in a cozy house with a large backyard just minutes away from the airport. Our backyard is always in use- sun, rain, or snow- we play outside with our pet guests multiple times a day. We work with you to make sure your pet is comfortable. We have room for crates and room for them to lie on our laps. A wonderful walking trail is just down the street and we visit it often.

From experience, we understand how much traditional boarding can be- this is why we chose to offer care in our home. You pay less and get more- more flexibility with drop offs/pick-ups, more one on one care with your pet, and more money in your pocket.

We even offer bathing services- for an extra $10-15 (depending on the size) we will send your pup home shampooed, conditioned, and smelling like a rose! We use the Furminator brush to help make a dent in ridding the under coat fluff that can cause tumble weeds of dog hair around your house.

Luckily, my husband and I have schedules that allow someone to be home all day, so your pup won't be stuck in a crate.
We have one Labrador and two children. All are great with the guest dogs!

Below are some reviews of Patrice F from real dog owners who have used their services on!

Average Rating:
  • Patrice was amazing! I received frequent photos of my dog while I was away and she also kept me posted on how my dog was doing. My golden retriever seemed to have a blast playing with Patrice's kids and also her dog. I will definitely use Patrice in the future!

  • ...again Piper came home a happy pup! Patrice wore her out and sent her with a to-go treat. So very satisfied and glad I found such a great, reliable, trusting dog sitter :)

  • I don't know what I would do without Patrice. I am so fortunate to have someone care so well for Molly. Very accommodating and they treat my little girl like family!!

  • Patrice and her family always come through for me! This trip was a scheduled trip that got extended, followed by a death which forced me to extend Molly's stay yet again! They take care of my baby like she is family! I am blessed to have them!

  • Another enjoyable stay with Patrice for Bucky & Lucy. Thanks Patrice!

  • I absolutely love Patrice! Bella gets so excited when I pull into her driveway and then whines when I come to pick her up. Highly recommended her to anyone I know! :)

  • Patrice is the best!! She treated Ciera like she was her own. I would recommend Patrice to anyone who needs a sitter for their pet.

  • This is the second time our "boys" stayed with Patrice and her family. They always have a blast, come home exhausted and I love how Patrice sends us texts/photos to show how the dogs are doing. If you're even considering booking with Patrice - don't wait any longer! She's the BEST!

  • Patrice and her family treat my Molly like one of their own. Molly got sick while I was away. They took her to the vet, cared for her and gave her love and care until I returned. I travel for my job and I live with such peace knowing that I have a place my dog is so well cared for. I found a gold mine!!

  • When picking Zoey up from Patrice home I could tell that it wasn't like just having someone watch our little girl. Zoey was a very happy dog. She just had a great vacation. I would not hesitate to take her back to Sit & Stay again. We are telling all our friends how great the experience was.

  • This is the first time we have used DogVacay & Patrice. We have a 1 year old chocolate lab who stayed with Patrice for 2 weeks. We did a meet and greet with Patrice first, and knew it would be a great fit. She went above and beyond to provide wonderful care for our dog. She showed us around her home and explained her daily routine with the dogs. During our dog's stay, they went on walks, played, and had a ton of fun. Patrice sent pictures and updates during her stay. I felt very comfortable knowing our dog was in great care. We will be using Patrice again in the future and would highly recommend her.

  • Patrice is THE best sitter! My dog goes crazy with excitement when we get to her neighborhood. I have pure peace of mind when my doggie is with her. I'm so glad that we met Patrice. The ZERO worry is priceless!

  • Patrice was very accommodating! We added an extra day to our trip at the last minute and she had no problem with it! She sent us pictures of our dog to update us everyday! Our dog was so wiped out from all the fun he slept the entire day we got him back! Thanks Patrice!

  • Patrice was excellent! Our dog was well taken care of while we were away. She would text us periodic updates and pictures to let us know how our dog was doing. I will be using Patrice again next time we leave town and would highly recommend her!

  • Patrice welcomed my 4 month old rambunctious puppy into her home for a week and was wonderful with her! I was able to meet Patrice and her dog prior to my trip to see how our dogs got along, which they did wonderfully. She has a very sweet, laid back lab who played so well with my puppy. Not only was I able to go on a relaxed vacation knowing my puppy was being well cared for, but my puppy had a vacation of her own with a large fenced in back yard and many other dogs to play with! Would DEFINITELY recommend.

  • I travel extensively for my job. Sit and Stay is Molly's home away from home. They do a great job and are very flexible to work with me around my chaotic schedule. Molly loves to play in the yard and it has been great for her to get acquainted with other animals and children. I would be lost without Patrice and her family!

  • Dottie didn't even look back at me. She just laid down at Patrice's feet, tail wagging. During her stay, I got a pic of Dottie rolling in the yard on email. And she loves the "cookies" Patrice sends home with her.

  • We always feel that our dogs are in good hands when they stay with Patrice. The drive is a little long but we feel that it is well worth the trip!

  • Patrice is great! From the first time we met her, we knew we were lucky to have found her. She did a great job with Gonzo and returned him to us full, healthy, and happy. She kept us up to date and really got to know our puppy like he was one of her own. We think she is the best! We will be back the next time we need to leave and can't take Gonzo with us. I can't recommend someone higher--she treated Gonzo like her own and gave him the best. No doubt she will do the same for you.

  • I was a very nervous "mom" leaving Dottie for the first time with Dog Vacay -- especially because of the toddlers in the house and Dottie's never having been around kids before. Apparently everyone did great. Dottie followed the kids around because they dropped food! She was happy and waggy tailed when I picked her up and Patrice sent her out the door with homemade dog treats. We have booked with Patrice for another overnight Dog Vacay. Judi

  • One of the best choice i made for my pup YODA-PATRICE!! we left him for a play date with patrice just to see how he socialises as have to go on a vacation this month end for a week,so we just wanted him to get used to patrice.. he absolutely loves her,her kids,her dog(oteo),and the cat. she even made tiny teeny custom sized homemade treats for him!!! ABSOLUTELY AND ABSOLUTELY recommend her..! one BIG worry now i dont have is leaving yoda when we have to go out of town!

  • I was super nervous about having just anyone watch over my dogs. But we needed someone to babysit our girls for the day of our wedding. We booked a meet and greet with Patrice the week before our big day. We were able to tour her home, hang out in the back yard while watching our dogs interact with her dog and the dogs she was babysitting. And Patrice seemed like a great person. After that visit we decided to book her. I received a couple photos during the day of their stay. It was a relief to see that they were doing ok. Later that evening when we went to pick our girls up. She told us they did great. We got a letter to that she sent along with a homemade treat for each of our dogs. After reading the letter about how the day went for Maisy & Saidie. I knew then I would fully trust Patrice to care for my girls if I ever needed a babysitter & if I can ever bare to part with them again. :)

  • Patrice has been the best boarder I have ever used! Her rates are very fair and she always takes great care of my dog. PB always come back worn out and looking like she had a great time. Cant say enough about her flexibility for pickups and dropoffs too.

  • I was a little anxious to leave my 6 month chocolate lab for a weekend, but Patrice made it easy. She was very well organized and flexible when scheduling the meet and greet as well as the drop-off and pick-up times...which made it very convenient to take Bentley with me on my way to and from the airport. She sent pictures throughout the weekend, and Bentley came home exhausted from a fun filled weekend. I know I trusted all of the other reviews when I chose Patrice as a hostess, so I just wanted to reiterate what many others have already said.

  • Patrice is an excellent host. She welcomed our senior greyhound into her home and treated her as one of the family. We received updates and pictures during our time away and that was very much appreciated. We felt that our girl Rose had found her perfect home away from home! If you have an older dog that you care very much for -- then Patice is more than capable of providing the special care that you are looking for. Many thanks Patrice!

  • I was not worried at all about my dog's stay with Patrice. Will use her again in the future.

  • Patrice and her family make my dog a part of thier family. I travel a lot for my job and Molly stays with them every time I leave town.

  • Patrice is awesome! Right before our vacation, we found out our dog had an ear infection. We asked Patrice if she would feel comfortable administering the medicine and she said "no problem". We got frequent picture updates and never worried for a second because we knew our dog was in good hands. We will definitely be calling Patrice the next time we go out of town!

  • I travel for a living and am gone a portion of every week. Patrice and her family have been wonderful to take care of Molly. She is very comfortable there and that makes me feel really good about leaving her there.

  • Patrice was wonderful with our dogs! Very understanding to what they needed to make them feel at home while they were there for 2 days. She even took them for a walk which they love! They seemed to enjoy themselves. She even baked some fresh dog biscuits to bring home with them! We will definitely be using her again in the future.

  • Great family. They love my girl. I feel totally comfortable leaving Molly

  • Always accommodating!! Loves my dog! Sends me pics and updates throughout the stay! Highly recommend!

  • We boarded our dog Max with Patrice and her family for three days and two nights in early June 2013. I would not hesitate to book another stay with this family. Patrice treated Max like he was a member of their family. He had homemade dog treats, and got to play with other pets in their fenced back yard. I also asked Patrice to give Max a bath before we picked him up. He looked great! This is excellent care at a very reasonable price.

  • Excellent service as usual! Ginger was clean, fed and very happy when she was picked up! I cant say enough about the level of personal care Ginger receives while with Patrice and her family! Patrice sent her home with homemade treats!

  • Patrice was great. We had a last minute need when we came across this site. Patrice had such positive reviews and she lived up to each and every one. It was reassuring to know our pups were in a home rather than a kennel, stuck in a crate etc. Patrice was patient with me as I can be a nervous owner and gave me an update on things whenever I sent her an email. When we went to pick our pups up she let us know that she felt a couple of bumps on Frisky (which we knew were there) but that just reassured us that she was looking out while sitting. We would definitely recommend and use again.

  • Patrice went out of her way to accommodate. I don't know what goes on when the parents leave, but my doggie goes CRAZY when we reach Patrice's place!!! That is a really good feeling!

  • She was excellent! kept the dogs busy playing and really entertained my dogs. I have one big Husky and a mixed lab. I can not say enough good things about the excellent and fantastic care my dogs got-they did not want to go home. I rate her five star and will take them again. The dogs loved every minute of their stay- it wasn't long enough. They cried when they got home because they played and had so much fun. John & Kathy E

  • Patrice was awesome. She is kind and in tune. After the meet and greet I knew my dog would be safe with her!! She sent a picture while my dog was with her and kept me informed without too much interruption. I soo thankful to have met Patrice! I don't know how we would've done it without her. Hopefully there's room in the inn, because we'll definitely go with Patrice again!

  • This was our second stay with Patrice and yet again she was truly amazing! Our dog felt even more at ease the second time around so you know he had only good memories of the first visit. The picture updates were once again very appreciated, showing him having an absolute blast. She truly welcomes your dog into her home as if it were part of her family. She even sent us home with a little report of his stay which makes us laugh and described him perfectly like he is at home.

  • My english bulldog fell in love with Patrice! Patrice was extremely caring, very flexible with drop off and pick up, attentive to not only my requests but my dog's needs! She gave timely responses to all of my questions. She even baked treats for Ginger! She sent pictures daily of Ginger, which I have yet to ever receive from other boarding places! My husband and i were so impressed that we both have decided to leave Ginger with Patrice every time we go out of town!

  • Patrice was amazing! She was very accommodating. She answered all of my questions prior to the reservation promptly and was very flexible with pick up and drop off. She was always easy to contact when needed. She sent me updates throughout his stay, which was very reassuring and my dog was having a blast!!! She even sent him home with homemade treats. She has a household full of dog lovers and I know my dog felt right at home. Would definitely use her again!!!

  • I definitely had my share of concern about taking Roscoe to someone's home to take care of him versus boarding. However, my experience has alleviated that concern completely. Patrice was very quick to respond to my reservation notice. She is very nice and pleasant. Her home is nice and clean with a big backyard for the dogs to play in. I had a great experience leaving Roscoe with Patrice. The times to pick him up were flexible and she also sent a letter home that was very detailed in Roscoe's activities and behavior. I will definitely use Patrice again with no hesitation.

  • I had to leave town on a very short notice. The person who normally house-sits for me was unavailable. I took a chance on booking with Patrice and was nervous about the process. Once there, I was completely pleased. Her home was clean. She was very interested in Molly (my dog). By the time I left, Molly was already smelling around the house. I was able to keep in touch via text messages while away. Patrice even sent me a picture of Molly during the stay. It was awesome. When I returned, Molly was very glad to see me. She was clean, very calm and I will definitely use Patrice again in the future.

  • Patrice was AMAZING!! Very easy to work with and treated my dogs as they were her own. Having two large breed dogs (lab and lab/dane mix) it isn't always easy finding someone to watch them together but Patrice was more than willing to welcome them into her home. She told me that her dogs are part of the family and I feel that mine were part of her family for the duration of their stay as well. I would, without hesitation, recommend Patrice for anyone looking for a loving home for their dogs while they are out of town.

  • I cannot say enough about how wonderful my experience with Patrice and her family. From our meet-and-greet to my dogs' stay we had an amazing experience. My dogs were very comfortable and got along wonderfully with Patrice and her family. Typically I take my dogs to Kennelwood, but I wanted to try something new, they always come home from the kennel so exhausted, like they haven't slept for days. When I picked up my dogs from Patrice, they were happy to see us, and when we got home they were so relaxed and ate normally. Patrice sent us texts and photos frequently, which I loved, and even sent us home with a little report! Don't think twice about using Patrice, it will be the best decision for you and your dogs that you will ever make!

  • Best dog boarder around town. She is very friendly and honest. Our dog bella loved it, she actually walked in our house and went to bed and fell asleep. Will definitely be using her again when we go out of town again!

  • Very caring. Took good care of our pet as if it was theirs. Also handled unusual requests with enthusiasm. Will we use her again? Without any hesitation.

  • Patrice was able to accommodate a stay at the last minute and also was flexible with the pickup time. She has a nice backyard for the dogs to play in and she took great care of the dogs. I even got a detailed letter of the dogs daily activities and experiences. I would recommend her as long as your dog does ok with small children. My dogs jumped on her little kids and I felt bad about that but she had the situation under control. Thank you to her and her family!
