About Ashley

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our name: A Dog's Utopia means our home, property, and personal care-giving is more of a "philosophy" of care for your dog while they Vacay. The philosophy of care-giving continues as I work around the yard, walk, feed, or play with your dog, and integrate your dog into the pack order of an already existing pack. Care-giving equals "Utopia" because our hands on support of your dog's stay is optimal for a low price, so the "Utopian" appreciation is yours, too!

I think exercising with your pup sets me apart from a boarding facility, other than NOT using cages to board your dog. I EXERCISE YOUR DOG, ALONE AND WITH MY PACK! So, free walks! No fees to walk your dog(s)!

Acres and acres to walk and allow free (if able) and long-leash running for your dog - it is the best! Road walks are also loads of fun!

I treat your dog like my own, though I could never replace YOU! I'm with your dog at all times to sit on their bed with them or the floor, to play ball, frisbee, etc.

On a different note, I'm fully capable to provide medication to dogs. I have been trained by working at Pet Health Center Small Animal Hospital as a technician.

I'm a former employee of the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center and honorably discharged from 12+ years in the Air National Guard and Reserves. This information may be especially important for some dog owners to know. It may show that I'm intelligent and have solid judgement. On the other hand, my hobbies include: walking dogs, learning more about their behavior, hiking, journaling, canoeing, and listening to audio books.

I hope this information allows for you to know me better. Hopefully, you will envision me as being kind, just, and sensitive to your dog's needs, because I am :). Integrating my educational background in psychology allows me to use my skills to understand dog behavior, use positive reward-based training, and easily learn their likes or dislikes. I'm a former dog trainer at Nashville Dog Training Club, so this experience helps me to understand your dog's behavior much more quick, as well.

*Please have your pet on a preventative flea/tick control product before boarding with me.

*Also, I will need a photo of your dog's annual vaccination records.

*On the last scheduled Vacay day, please plan to pick-up your dog before 6pm. If you're unable to pick-up before 6pm, then you might be charged a late fee.

Ashley takes time to engage the dogs she's sitting in all types of activities...walking, playing, doing puzzles (yes, puzzles!). The dogs love her and she lives and keeps them in an extremely safe and secure environment. Also, the dogs that she keeps have the chance to play with other dogs. Since Ashley is a dog trainer, she also knows how to socialize the dogs with one anther. We love Ashley!

Our pups LOOOVE A Dog's Utopia!! They are treated like family and we never worry for their safety or well-being while we are on vacation. Such a blessing!!
Great teacher for both my dog and me.
We love being able to leave Olive at an awesome place where both the people and dogs are so wonderful. We got the best pictures with fun captions from our last trip that I laughed out loud and knew that Olive was having a great time! She gets so excited every time she gets to go to her Dogvacay place with Ashley!!

Charlie loved Ashley. We took her for daycare and in day 2 she couldn't get out of the car fast enough and was ready to play! Thank you Ashley you saved us this week!
Almost couldn't get the pups to leave they love it so much!! Thank you, thank you!!!
Nobody we would trust more with our precious babies!
Always a good time at A Dog's Utopia! Our pups are head over paws for Ashley and Jenny!!
So grateful for A Dog's Utopia! Our pups are safe and we'll care for. We don't even worry a tiny bit while we are away!
I can't say enough good things about A Dog's Utopia! So wonderful to have a place where our pups are treated like family.
Another successful stay at the happiest place on earth! Our pups loooove a Dog's Utopia!
Ashley was very kind and accommodating. Our dog had a great time! Plenty of room for dogs to run and play!
Ashley did a wonderful job with Anakin and he LOVED his time with her!!!
We knew he was being cared for in the same way we would, he was a member of her family and was being loved on while we were gone.
Highly recommended and she will be seeing more of him again soon!!!

Awesomeness! My two doodles had a great time and we were provided with many photo updates. Her dogs are great and played very well with our girls... they were wiped out after their stay. Definitely going back! Thank you Ashley!
Truly a dog's utopia! Ashley goes above and beyond with her guests! We were totally at ease knowing our pup was getting top notch care while we were away! The updates and pictures were so much fun to receive! My only worry was bringing our pup home...I was afraid she'd be bored and depressed after her stay with Ashley! Definitely use them again!

Excellent! First Class. Ashley is the very best! It's like taking your child to the camp of their dreams. They learn new things, make friends with other dogs are nurtured and cared for like mom does (or dad) and they come home so excited they can't wait to go back! The care they receive when with Ashley second to none. Now I can leave town and never worry! The pictures are always well thought out and great care taken when sending them to us. I cannot imagine taking my dogs to anyone else. The care, knowledge and expertise given is far greater than ever expected.

These sitters were excellent with our dog. They went above and beyond to work with her while they had her. Great updates while we were away. We would gladly use them again.
Ashley and Jenny always take care of our pups as if they were their own! I can't even express how grateful we are to have such an amazing place to take our babies when we can't take them with us on vacation!
Lefty loves going to stay with Ashley!! Thank you for taking such good care of her!
Cooper LOVES going to Ashley's house! I travel a ton and I always know that Cooper is in great care and is having such a fun time. I don't worry about him at all and love getting all the updates from the farm!
Will definitely go back and rebook my pups for future dog vacays. I'm 100% sure Jake and Jillie enjoyed their stay!
Amazing stay for my Lily! I can say enough wonderful things about Ashley & A Dog's Utopia! Very capable and friendly hosts, amazing home and land for my Lily to play on. 5 stars just isn't enough stars!
Zeus had a great dogvacay with Ashley and Jenny. I was updated with pictures and messages several times a day. All questions I had were answered within minutes. I couldn't have asked for any more peace of mind to know our sweet boy was having a great time and was being loved on just like he was their own.

Dog daycare with a personal touch. They truly care for your pet like it was their own.
Ashley was a great host to my little dog. I was receiving pictures all the time and knew my dog was being well taken care of. She kept me informed of everything going on - from breakfast to bedtime. I would highly recommend her Vacay for anyone looking to leave their most treasured pet.

This was my first time leaving my Duff and I couldn't be happier with Ashley and Jenny. They really took the time to get to know Duff and make sure his stay was easy and fun....!!! Already booked another stay... These gals are awesome ..!..
Booley and Murphy always love going to the "dog farm" as our son calls it! :) Ashley and Jenny are two of our favorite people and it's so nice to have a place to take the pups when they can't come with us on vacation. You couldn't find two more loving, caring folks to take care of your precious pups!
Read More...
As usual, Booley and Murphy had a wonderful time!! And bonus: they were returned to us smelling better than when we dropped them off!! :) We are just so thrilled to have found Ashley and Jenny at A Dog's Utopia!! It's so wonderful to leave our beloved pups in such capable and caring hands. These ladies are quickly becoming family! :)

Excellent!
Ashley took great care of Maya. Loved the daily pics! I could tell Maya had fun because she came home and was exhausted. She slept for several hours!
Hudson had another wonderful stay with Ashley! It's hard to be away from my sweet pup, but I always know my fur baby is receiving excellent care in Ashley's home! I can tell from the pictures that he is comfortable in his surroundings, gets plenty of exercise and is content. I couldn't ask for anything more! Thank you for the wonderful care that you extend to sweet Hudson!

We were so happy to find Ashley! She was close, had a clean, comfortable environment for the pets.
Our "Sonny" is a curious, energetic, intelligent Parson's Russell and he was very happy and relaxed. We were also comfortable with Ashley, and very confident in her ability to take care of our baby boy. We will be back.

Another awesome stay at A Dog's Utopia. I can't imagine anywhere or anyone else I would rather look after Olive!
We are new to the area and have two fur babies...and we needed a place for them to feel at home and loved when we travel...well this is the place for that. Ashley and Jennifer are such wonderful people they really took great care of our fur babies. Georgia and axel came home and they were soooo happy!!!. They are life savers in our eyes and we thank them for a great weekend!!!!!!!

Paisley had another wonderful stay with Ashley! I love knowing that Paisley is having her own little vacation here whenever I am traveling thanks to Ashley's great care!
Ashley and Jen did a wonderful job with Libby, and also with introducing her to the other dogs and activities, like working on the farm and walking with the "pack". I really appreciated the photos that Ashley sent every day and feel like Libby was very well taken care of and had great time! Ashley is our number one go-to person for kenneling Libby from now on. Thank you!! Debbie and Gary

I love Ashley and Jenny! So do my boys Beau and Trigg. These ladies have always gone out of their way to take care of my dogs when I'm away. Detailed care isn't something you get even at a vets office! We are so very thankful to know them.
Once again, Booley had a wonderful time at the "dog farm" as we like to call it! :) We just love, love, love Ashley and Jenny! We are so happy to have found a wonderful place for our pups to go where they are not only well cared for, but are also entertained, mentally stimulated, trained, and loved on like crazy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Another wonderful vacay at A Dog's Utopia!! Murphy and Booley had such a great time. We are so grateful to have a place that loves on our pups just as much as we do (if not more)!! Thank you, thank you!!
Great stay for Bella
A Dog's Utopia is THE best place to board
our pups hands down! Our 6-month-old Great Pyrenees and 2-year-old Cavalier King Charles were in hog heaven! Ashley and Jenny not only had the dogs exercising physically, they exercised their minds daily, too, with games and training. These two ladies are precious and loved on our dogs just as much as we do at home. What a relief to have a safe and fun place to take our pups when we go out of town. And the icing on the cake is that A Dog's Utopia is competitively priced, super professional, and they are light years better than any of the more expensive boarding facilities nearby. I hope they liked us, too, because we are going to be forever customers! :)

Another great stay! They really focus on the well being of the dog and provide lots of activities. Olive was tracked running with Flash at 15 mph! I could tell from the pictures that she had a great time!
Ashley is simply the best! Her concern for our dog (it was our first time using DogVacay) allowed us to enjoy our time away with absolutely no worries. She updated us with pictures and notes about Lulu and could be reached at all times if I needed to check in. I had my reservations about using someone I didn't know but after I met Ashley and Jenny I knew our dog was in good hands. Lulu throughly loved her time away and stayed more active than she ever has before. I loved that she didn't have to sleep in a kennel and was treated as if she were their own. From now on, I won't use anyone else and will recommend these two to anyone who asks! Simply the best ever.

Another great stay for Bella!
Olive's first experience with Ashley and A Dog's Utopia was wonderful! She was exercised every day which is very important for an active coon hound :-). She loved her walks and playing with the other dogs...we especially enjoyed all of the photos and felt that Olive was having as much, if not more fun, than we were having on vacation! Have made future reservations for more stays already.

Once again a great stay! Ashley takes such good care of your pets!
Awesome as always! They stayed while we had movers and packers at the house. The saddest part of our move was that this was their last trip to see their friends at A Dogs Utopia. Sasha, Doc and Yoohoo are going to miss their trips to the "farm".
Ashley was awesome and the home is beautiful! The back deck and the fenced in yard were perfect for the small dogs. Loved the daily picture updates. Thank you for making our first dogvacay amazing!
This was my first experience with dog vacay and it was great! Ashley and Jennie are wonderful and they are great with the dogs! Every day I was so excited to see my pictures of my sweet Bella! They even sent me the pictures of the walks they went on and how far they walked! I will defiantly be taking Bella back for more visits! Thanks for taking good care of my furry family member!

Extremely satisfied. I have a trip out of the country scheduled at the end of the year. I'm so glad to have found Ashley knowing my Molly could not have better care or more attention.
I am a repeat customer for at least a year now. As always, Ashley takes great care of my two dogs and provides a clean, spacious and secure environment for them. I really appreciate all the attention and exercise she gives them. Couldn't ask for more!!! Thank you!!!

We have used Ashley and Dog Utopia on several different occasions as we like to travel. It has been an awesome experience for us, as well as our dog. We know we can leave him with her and not have to worry about anything. Capone loves his vacays as much, if not more than we do. Ashley has worked with him on his training and helped him take big steps in the obedience area. She even came to support Capone and I at one of his obedience trainings. He graduated Level One Obedience and now begins Level Two in order to earn his Canine Good Citizen title! We love the updates that we get through the app. It is a good feeling when you are away from home and can look and see that your dog is having fun and being well taken care of, and being spoiled!

As usual Cooper had the BEST time! I travel frequently and never hesitate to leave Cooper with Ashley whether it is for a weekend or for several weeks. I get multiple updates throughout his stay about all of the adventures that Cooper gets to do. He makes friends with the other dogs and animals, gets to run through the fields, and is a pampered pup! Sometimes I think he may not want to come home with me because his stay is so awesome at A Dog's Utopia! I will always book Cooper's vacations with Ashley!

Ashley treated our "babies" like they were at a resort. Their stay was great as always. Thanks again Ashley.
Awesome as always! Loved seeing the daily pictures of their adventures!
My dogs were so happy with Ashley and Jennie! The hosts were fantastic about keeping me updated on the boys and sending pics. I couldnt thank them enough for taking such good care of my sweet dogs. I will definitely take them back to stay with Ashley.

Previously, our babies - Jake, Rocky and Morgan have had to stay at a kennel when our family went out of town. We were not very happy about them staying in a concrete room there, although they received good care, it seemed like such a "sterile" environment. Between the old kennel and Ashley's - no comparison! Ashley treated them like they were her own. I could really tell that our babies enjoyed everything, especially the walks. Getting the constant updates and photos was great. I am so happy that I found Ashley and DogVacay.

Perfectly happy and clean, exercised pups! Love Ashley!!!!!
Ashley took wonderful care of our senior, blind, and insulin-dependent Bug. I was concerned about leaving Bug anywhere but found A Dog's Utopia and it sounded perfect. Ashleye took extra time to ensure Bug was comfortable in a new&d unfamiliar place,helping her map the house and yard and even sleeping on the couch with Bug on the floor next to her. I received lots of updates every day -and am confident that itis one of the best places to take a loved furbaby for their vacay. Bug even got a bath!

I am a repeat user of Ashley. We have left Mayor with her several times. I have never had any worries leaving my big lab with her. she keeps me updated with pictures and texts on what is going on with him. she cares for him, like he's her own. I like the GPS that shows how and where Mayor goes on his walks with Ashley and the "boys". I love the idea that he is not cooped up in a kennel and only walked to relieve himself. He gets lots of activity here and lots of good, hands-on loving, and wonderful care. Ashley gets a A++, in my opinion. Wish there were "Ashleys", everywhere we roam!!

Ashley was wonderful and I was so happy to know that my dog Paisley was in good hands while I was vacationing- her care for Paisley really allowed me to relax and enjoy the trip. Ashley sent over 100 photos while I was gone and I even received videos of Paisley. Our drop off and pick ups were seamless, which I appreciated. Paisley went on countless adventures on Ashley's extensive land and met all sorts of farm and wild animals she does not normally get to experience with city living. It was almost as if Paisley was on her own little vacation while I went on mine, and I don't think you could hope for anything more in a place to board your dog! I would use Ashley again without hesitation.

This was our dogs second stay with Ashley and once again they loved it! Ashley takes them on long walks which even our little dachsunds love because they get to ride in a cart pulled by other dogs when they get tired! Talk about spoiled! Our German Shepard came home so tired that we found her on the bed, spread eagled on her back! That was one happy dog! We used Ashley's driving services this time to bring them back home which helped tremendously. All the dogs came home bathed, trimmed and happy.
Read More...
Ashley was wonderful again, as I knew she would be. This is the second time we've booked "A Dog's Utopia" and we couldn't be more pleased. Ashley bathed Scout and trimmed her. Scout has hip problems and requires her wheels when she walks. Ashley put in her in a cart and let the other dogs pull her so Scout could be included on a longer walk. Ashley cares for Scout as if she were her own. I can't recommend Ashley enough. We will definitely book her again.
Read More...
Awesome,as usual, both dogs returned tired, happy, fed and bathed!
Ashley always goes the extra mile for all of her loved dogs. She is kind and considerate and always puts the dogs best interest first. We hope to always have Ashley for our pups second home.

She's the best. Never worry when I have to leave. My dogs love her.

Another wonderful stay with Ashley Bell!! Thanks so much for taking wonderful care of Hudson!
Ashley is absolutely amazing.
As always..... The best care ever!
??No. 1
Two paws up! ??
Outstanding
Ashley was fabulous! We have a corgi and she has hip problems. She needs wheels for her back legs so my husband and I really wanted to find someone who could give her attention all day. A friend recommended Ashley. Ashley is very caring and thorough. Before I booked, we talked at length on the phone about Scout's needs. Ashley was extremely attentive. She posted pictures and videos regularly. My husband and I loved receiving updates! We had total peace of mind, knowing our precious Scout was receiving excellent care. We will definitely use Ashley again!!

We are so happy we chose Ashley to take care of our Moose. She genuinely cared for the animals she was responsible for. Moose had a great time and we loved getting picture updates of his time spent with her. We highly recommend Ashley if you want responsible caregiver for your fur-babies! A+ from us!

Beyond all expectations! I'm that crazy dog person that knows no one could possibly love, exercise and care for my dog nearly as good....but I've found my match and then some. Toby was delivered back to us happy, healthy, bathed, tail wagging and if I'm to be honest, stayed next to Ashley and wanted to leave with her!
We received a ton of loving, active moments via 150 pics of Toby enjoying parks, rivers, fields, play time, both solo and with other dogs, and sleep time...not to mention doggie IQ, one on one time, with finding treats :)
We are so grateful to know Ashley and more than highly recommend her. She offers a kind, loving, routined environment that's both safe and nurturing. She was also kind enough to both pick up and drop Toby off to us...he was definitely spoiled rotten!
Read More...
Our dogs had a great vacation with Ashley! She was more than accommodating with scheduling our meet and greet time as well as drop off and pick up. She treated the dogs like her own and sent pics throughout the day to show us what our pups had been up to. I enjoyed my vacation so much more knowing that the pups were more than well taken care of and being loved on. They probably got more attention from Ashley than they do at home!

We will definitely use Ashley again!

Ashley is an amazing dog sitter!!! My dog, Borris, stayed with her several times and he loved it!!! She treated him like one of her own - walking him, bringing him to dog parks, making special food for him, buying him toys, and bathing him. She always sent photo updates and kept me in the loop with how he was feeling... He's very old. I've lived in several cities and tested several dog sitting places. Ashley is by far mine, and Borris's, favorite!!! She makes it convenient for you, if you live near by, and will pick up your dog. I recommend her 110%!!!
Read More...
I was so worried, our plans had changed and we needed to leave a day early for Tennessee; but what about my dog? I hesitantly sent a text to Ashley to see if it would be possible to bring Mayor a day early, due to a change in plans. She was so accommodating, and graciously worked with our plan change. I could relax knowing that my baby boy was in Ashley's care. He soaks up the exercise, interaction, and loving attention that he gets there.

Something new that she has added, that I enjoy, a GPS map sent to you, of the walks that your pet takes with Ashley and her fur babies. I have posted the pictures, that Ashley has sent me of Mayor, on my FB page and have had several inquiries about her. I recommend her to anyone traveling in the area. As I have said before, she IS the best!

Jaeger had another wonderful stay with Ashley and her crew of animals. I never have to worry at all about his well being when with her. She keeps him busy all day long. Jaeger loves to run and he has plenty of room to do just that at Ashley's place. Runs, long walks, swimming in the river, lots of other animals to play with, what dog wouldn't love that!
Ashley cares for you dog as her own. Pampers them and sees to their individual needs. I don't know how she does all she does.
Thanks Ashley, we really appreciate your dedication and loving work.

My second time using Ashley. She is the best dog sitter there is. I have absolutely no worries when I'm gone. I trust her whole heartedly. My dogs get exercise and interaction with other dogs. She seems to have a good feel for understanding their needs.

I can't express enough how amazing it was leaving my little guy with Ashley. You couldn't ask for a better caregiver for your fur baby. She stayed in contact with me during his entire stay. There was never a time that she didn't respond immediately to any questions that I had. She even offered to meet me if it would make it easier for my travels. As I stated, I can't even express how wonderful the experience was. She will be the ONLY person that I will ever consider to watch my Edgar Man!! :))

Ashley, Mayor definitely had a LARGE time, while in your care. He slept all the way back to Mississippi, except for his potty breaks/stretches! (It made for a great trip home). If you will keep our spoiled baby, again, you will be my permanent sitter, each time we are in your area! Ashley is exactly what I was looking for in a sitter for Mayor. Thank you so much for including him in your daily routine.
Ashley responded so quickly to all my inquiries and I was delighted to receive pictures of Mayor throughout the day.
To sum this up, Ashley, YOU ARE THE BEST! Mayor and I thank you."

Ashly was the best dogsitter ever. I'm hoping they will want to come back home with me. They were excersied and played with other dogs, even covered in flower petals at the end of a big day. The pics that were sent all day made me feel confident that they had a great time. Ashly is a pro. Will always use her.

Finding Ashley to care for our sweet Hudson was a true gift! She provided excellent care and attention to his needs, provided lots of opportunities for exercise and plenty of love. Hudson is a little shy and a bit worried at times and Ashley was able to draw him into the pack - we appreciated all the pictures and could tell he became very comfortable with her - Ashley must be a "dog whisperer!"
Read More...
This was our second time using Ashley, that's why we came back! Ashley is awesome. She has a real love for animals. Jaeger, our German short hair pointer just loves her and her other animals. Jaeger feels at home with her. He loves all the space to run and frolic. Ashley truly gives your dog a "five star" experience.
We received daily photos and updates on Jaeger's days with her. I am not sure he really wanted to come home, he had it made with her.
Besides her talent for animals, she is truly a sweet person and it shows in everything she does. She's a keeper! We will be back again and again. Thanks Ashley!!!

Ashley and A Dog's Utopia is so awesome! My dog Cooper stayed for over 11 days and I was so relieved to know he was in such good hands. I got photo updates several times a day of Cooper's adventures. He was a well pampered and happy pup! I've already booked Cooper's stay for the next three trips coming up! Thanks Ashley!

Great experience!!! This was the second time boarding my dog with Ashley. Beautifully maintained and secure area for your dog inside and out. Great care and attention given for the needs/concerns of your pet. So happy to be able to leave my dog with Ashley knowing he's in a safe and caring environment with loads of attention!!! Highly recommend!!! A+ Thank you!

I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD ABOUT ASHLEY, BANCHE LOVES HER, SHE HAS BEEN SUCH A GREAT POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON HIM, HIS SEPERATION ANXIETY GREATLY IMPROVED AND HE GETS ALONG WELL WITH OTHER DOGS NOW.SHE SEND ME PICS AND VIDEOS DURING THE DAY SO I AM WELL INFORMED OF WHAT BANCHE IS DOING. SHE IS PASSIONATE AND LOVING, SHE HAS MADE ME FEEL LIKE BANCHE WAS ONE OF HER OWN. I TRUST HER COMPLETELY WITH MY LITTLE GUY, I ONLY WISH THEIR WERE MANY MANY MORE LIKE HER. BANCHE AND I LOVE HER, I WILL NOT HESITATE TO CALL ON HER AGAIN.

Ashley was a fabulous pet sitter. We had a great beach vacation and didn't worry at all about the care of our pets. She is very nice and so trustworthy. We will definitely call on her the next time we need pet care.We will also refer her to many family and friends.

ASHLEY IS SO AWESOME, SHE HAS TAKEN MY LITTLE BOT AND MADE HIM SO HAPPY. SHE HAS GIVEN ME SO MANY POINTERS ON THINGS I CAN DO . I SO COMPLETELY TRUST HER, AND BANCHE LOVES HER.
We could not be happier with Ashley's service. She took care of our dogs for several days, took pictures each time she visited so I could see them. Played fetch with our dogs and loved on them. They were very happy, ate good and slept good while we were gone. We will use Ashley at dogvacay.com everytime we go out of town. Thanks so much.

Borris stay was awesome! Thank you for picking him up!
My dog stayed with Ashley over the holiday weekend and I truly think he was sad to leave. He had so much fun playing on the ranch with the other dogs. She spoiled him!!!:-) Ashley was so wonderful to work with as well! She drove out of her way to pick him up an hour away, gave him his medicine when needed, sent updates/photos, and gave him a bath before he left.
I'm looking into scheduling his next stay. Totally worth it! I felt 110% comfortable that my boy was in the best hands.
Thanks Ashley!

This was Sadie's first daycare experience with Ashley and her dogs. I've boarded multiple nights before with her, but this was just for the day and it turned out well. I received texts/pictures while I was at work and it made me feel good that I dropped her off to play with the other dogs. I really think Sadie is doing better socializing with other dogs the more she goes to Ashley's house. In fact, during her daycare Ashley taught Sadie how to shake! I was so excited because my two boys will love that!

A report card is always given to us when we arrive to pick up Sadie and that let's us know the details of her stay. We love it. The report reveals how Sadie's overall well-being was during her stay. I just don't know how words can express my contentment with Sadie staying with Ashley. A+ REVIEW from ME!!!

Ashley is the BEST host! This is our second time we've asked Ashley to watch Sadie because she is soooo excited to see Ashley when we pull up. Sadie knows how to "shake" now! Unbelievable.

I like how Ashley responds to every text with either a response or a picture. We feel so comfortable leaving our little Sadie with her because we know she'll be taken care of and Ashley's with her at all times.

This time Sadie was taking a vitamin to help her joints because she has a limp. She received all of her vitamins while we were gone and we know Ashley monitored her activity level accordingly due to her inability to run too much.

I would recommend Ashley's Dogvacay services to anyone!

Ashley was a terrific host. She is passionate about dogs, all animals I suppose. I really felt like Jaeger was getting the best of all worlds. The companionship of other dogs, the attention from Ashley and the ability to be outdoors to run and play.
Jaeger unfortunately had a run-in with a water moccasin before we brought him to Ashley. He was taking 2 meds for it. Ashley had no problem giving him his daily meds and watching the wound for us. She was very attentive to him and was updating us regularly as to his condition and his activities under her care. Thank you Ashley!!!

Ashley was an amazing host! I felt completely comfortable leaving Sadie at her home with her dogs. Ashley took Sadie on multiple walks and cut her nails for me. Sadie looked happy in all of her pictures and Ashley provided me with a complete report card with the details of her stay! I plan to use Ashley's services again next time I go on vacation!

I had to wait a grand total of 2 1/2 minutes before Ashley respond. I could not have asked for quicker responses!! We also cannot be more pleased with her services. It was amazing piece of mind seeing our dogs playing and relaxing while we were on vacation ourselves.
