About Natalie

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Natalie. I have been a dog lover my whole life and have had dogs as members of my family for over 13 years. Currently I share my home with one dog, a Miniature Schnauzer named Rhino who is a puppy mill survivor. He and I welcome foster dogs into our home regularly and love dog visits and sleepovers with DogVacay friends.

I mainly work from home so I will be with your dog the majority (if not the whole) day. On weekends I can accommodate your needs and can stay home the majority of the day to help your dog feel happy.

I live in Linden, NJ in a quiet, residential neighborhood. I am within a 15 minute drive of two dog parks (but would never take your dog there without permission). Also, we routinely go on a minimum of three daily walks for at least 20 minutes at a time.

Also, I have had dogs with medical needs for many years and can administer any oral or topical medications that your pet may need. I will also ensure that your dog sticks to her or his diet to allay any possible stomach issues. The food you provide will be kept in a dry, temperature-controlled location and proper portions will be given.

As well, you are free to bring over any special creature comforts, such as toys or a dog bed. Whatever your pup needs to feel relaxed and happy!

Natalie, took care of my 5 month old pup on late notice. Extremely, responsive to any questions I had prior to sitting and provided updates during the week. Pup had a terrific time and I would recommend to anyone. Seth
Natalie never lets us down. We were taking a long weekend vacay and the pups were totally happy with her and Rhino. She sent us pics every day via text. It was wonderful.
Natalie took wonderful care of our little girl Ella. She kept us well updated on all the fun she was having with frequent messages and pictures. Ella got along great with her as well as the other dogs in the home while she was there. I Would definitely recommend her and we look forward to another visit soon! Thanks!
Natalie was awesome. We were in a pinch and needed a sitter last minute. She was so accommodating and so friendly. Since it was our first time with her, she made sure we spent some time together and our dogs spent some time together. I got great pictures all weekend and feel so guilty that my dog took over her bed :) Can't wait to have Peter visit her and her dog again.
This is the first time using dogvacay and of course I was a little bit nervous at first. I contacted Natalie to schedule a meet and greet and she responded within 10 mins. From the first conversation she was very nice and walk me through the whole process. I met with her and explained what I was looking for and explained to her that my dog can be very hyper and needs plenty of exercise. Gwenavere stayed with Natalie for two days and when she returned home she was so calm and relax. I can tell she had fun playing and got plenty of exercise. She even kept me updated with plenty of pictures. I will be booking with Natalie in the near future.

Thank you!
Very good with my boys. sent pictures everyday. I would highly recommend her.
Natalie is perfect. We arranged a meet & greet to allow the dogs to get to know each other, talked through the details. She was so very accommodating, letting us drop them off early, sent photos throughout the day and the pups had a great time. Her pup is a playful little darling that got along great it's mine. I'm sure they loved the company! We'll definitely be using her as our regular sitter.
Wow!! What an amazing job Natalie did with my Boston terrier Tiki. I was continually updated on how she was feeling and what she was up to via pictures and messages. During her stay Tiki was given lots of love and care. Natalie followed all my specific care and feeding instructions. Without hesitation, I will use Natalie's services again. It feels great to be able to go away and feel that my Tiki baby is in good hands. Thanks again Natalie! Tiki thanks you too :)
Natalie was a great host for my dog Flurry. She took Flurry on several walks each day and sent us amazing photos as well. She kept us informed on how he was doing while we were on vacation. I definitely recommend Natalie as a host!
