35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
"I don't trust people who don't like dogs,
but i do trust dogs when they don't like people"

Fees for daycare:
Full day (up to 12 hours) $33
Half Day (up to 7 hours) $25

If I am unavailable to take care of your pup, please feel free to contact Veronica at:

Monika is AMAZING! Her and her family treat my dog Cooper like he is their own pup. I could ask for someone better to care for Cooper while I'm away.
Monika was great - welcoming and Boris felt right at home! So glad to have found her.
This was the first time we have used DogVacay. Monika took our Golden in for five nights. We were a bit concerned if our three year old would accept Monika's dog. Turned out to be absolutely no problem. Monika was great and our pup got so much attention that she seems lost without the company off other dogs.

A real great experience.
Monika is an excellent host. She took good care of our pup and sent me pictures so I would know how he was doing. I have had little Heming staying with her whenever I travel.
We just love Monika and so does our dog Sonny. Every time we leave him with Monika, our minds are totally at ease. He's always happy to go and spend time with Bluebell!
Monika is amazing with my dogs. They loved their mini-vacay and were loved and walked and entertained the whole time. I was able to keep up with what they were doing as well so I was not a worried mom:). Thank you Monika! I hope to be back soon.
Heming enjoyed his stay with Monika and Bluebell (the house dog). Monika texted me pictures so I wouldn't worry and tried her best to accommodate our schedule. We plan to use this sitter again.
Monika is awesome and Papaya had so much fun with Bluebell and Monika. She took such great care of our little pup and Papaya came home to us a tired, happily satisfied dog. We were kept at ease with constant updates from Monika. We loved her photos of Papaya on the walks and also videos of Papaya playing with all the other dogs! Highly recommend Monika to anyone!
Monika is a great host. We feel confident that our Husky will be cared for while we are out of the area.
Lady spent her first Christmas and New Years away from us but Monika and her family made her feel right at home!
This was a very long vacation for Lady and Monika and her family made sure she had a great time!!!
Lady had an awesome time!
Monika was SUPERB!!!!! She went above & beyond with caring for our "BIG B"!!!

Our Old English Sheepdog, Bentley, is a loving pooch, but he is very needy & requires lots & lots of attention, as well as dealing with issues related to his meals & the upkeep of his enormous amount of HAIR!!!!

Monika handled all of these issues & then some with a wonderful attitude & a great sense of humor!!!! She truly cared about our Bentley & showed it with all the effort that she put into caring for our big guy!!!!

We have no hesitation about wanting to have Monika be our Dog Vacay sitter,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,she is a gem/a jewel!!! AND.....Bentley loves her!!!!!

GRAZIE & MERCI to Monika ^& her family!!!!
Rocky loves Monika! She always takes special care of him.
Monika rocks! She is such a dog mama, so attuned to our dog's needs and so caring. She kept us updated while we were in China with pictures and text messages. We have plans to use her again
Monika and her family were AMAZING! We left our dog Enzo with them for a week and he had a blast. They treated him like he was theirs and sent daily pictures and updates of his day. He received multiple walks a day and tons of play time with their family dog. I have never felt more comfortable leaving Enzo while we're away which is why we will definitely be using Monika again anytime we travel. Seriously, I cannot say enough good things about our experience!
Once again, Monika is the best sitter. Always updating me on how GInger was doing and sending pics of her playing. My mind was at ease knowing Ginger was in such loving hands.
My dog was nervous about being away from us and being around two other dogs. Monika let her sleep next to her bed. She also put extra care to make sure she would eat.
Our dog LOVES Monika and we do too! She is the perfect person to watch our dog when we go away! Highly recommended:)
Monika is so sweet and took great care of Ginger! Monika walked Ginger and her dog 3x a day and texted me photos throughout the weekend. My mind was at ease knowing Ginger was in such a loving home. Thank you Monika!:-)
This is our 2nd time boarding with Monika & her dog, Bluebell. We've been so happy both times she's watched Sammie for us. Sammie becomes part of the family! Monika is so friendly, flexible and sweet with dogs & people alike :) She's our go-to for Sammie from here on out!
This was my first experience with Dog Vacay. Monika was wonderful and we will definitely be reserving a spot with her again! She was so thoughtful! She knew I was a little nervous leaving our furry family member and sent me daily photos and videos. I could tell Max was having a great time!
I cannot say enough about Monika! I was in a last minute bind to find a dog sitter and she was literally a life saver. Not only was she available, but she was so good to my frenchie! Monika really is a dog lover and treated my pup like he was her own. I am already booking my next appointment with her. She is literally AMAZING!!! Love love love Monika!!!
Five Stars!! I would recommend Monika to anyone looking for a place to board their pup. Monika was great- she is a natural with dogs, sent me updates everyday and overall very attentive to make sure my dog had a great stay. And did I mention how flexible she was on pick up and drop of times! Since my dog is high energy, it was so nice to pick him up and have him all tuckered out after all the walks and play time with her dog BlueBell. I used to work in the animal industry and have always been very selective on where I board my dog. This was my first time using Dog Vacay and Monika made it such a wonderful and seamless experience. I was not worried one bit and truly trust her watching my dog. I plan on using Monika for my next vacation!
Your doggy will feel right at home! Monika is a great at communication - i.e. texted photos and videos of how our Max was during his stay. She is also super flexible and caring, which made me and our dog very confortable from our first visit. Max had lots of long walks and playtime. We will definitely use Monika again, and highly reccomend her!
Monika and her family took wonderful care of Nellie. I received updates and photos of Nellie playing with their dog, Bluebell. I think Nellie has a new best friend! It was a very positive experience for us. Monika is an amazing host.
I can't say enough about Monika and her family. Incredible hosts for my lil buddy. They have a beautiful family, amazing house, a yard, and a huge park across the street for the dogs to play. Monika was a life saver for me coming thru at the last minute to watch my dog for an impromptu trip last minute to Europe. It gave me peace of mind to know that my dog was in great hands. I will definitely be using Monika and her services again. Strong recommendation. 5 out of 5 stars!
