About Alaina

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Alaina and I adore dogs and would love to care of your pups while you are away. I offer drop-in care as well as overnight stays in your home.

I have experience with a wide variety of breeds, ages, levels of energy, and special needs, meds and diets.

I am more than willing to send photo updates each day showing your pup is in good hands (:

Please mention the dates of your vacation as well as roughly what time you need my arrival and departure in any meet and greet requests.

Thanks!

We have a pretty low maintanence dog, but were happy with Alaina taking care of her. She was recommended by a friend of ours, and we would definitely use her again. We came home to a happy pup, and that's the most important thing.
Alaina did a great job taking care of my 10 year old dachshund. She was prompt, courteous, and very responsive. I received a daily update or two with pictures and videos which I really appreciated, being nervous as the first time dogvacay user and a crazy dog parent =). She has my best recommendations.

We would suggest using Alaina, our dogs are very happy when she is there!
Alaina did a wonderful job watching my 3 dogs while I was away. She is very responsible and caring.
Our Pitbull is very attached to us. Alaina was excellent with him. He was cool calm and collected when we got home. Its obvious that Alaina really loves dogs and was very professional and thrilled to take care of our big lug.
Alaina also was really conscientious about keeping us updated and making us feel at ease.
Excellent service and thrilled to find Alaina on DogVacay!

We recently took an extended vacation and had Alaina sit for our pups in our home while we were away. Alaina was genuinely excited to care for them, and I was relieved to know they were in such good hands. She did a good job of communicating and giving us updates. It was nice to have her stay in our home since one of our dogs is just a year old. They seemed to really enjoy her company so I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to her again!

We recently moved to this area and were in need of someone to watch our 2 dogs in our new house. Alaina saved the day. She was responsible, catered to all of our "special needs", stayed in contact while we were gone, and took excellent care of our pets and home. We will definitely call her first whenever we leave the area.

We have two American Eskimos, the rescue can be a real handful (separation anxiety, potential aggressive behavior.) So we needed someone confident with dogs who could handle Ziva. Alaina was exactly the dog sitter we needed! After our meet and greet we knew we found someone who would kindly watch our dogs, and keep Ziva out of trouble. Alaina communicated with us while we were on our trip, sending updates and pictures of our happy pups. We could tell she kept them well stimulated and entertained when we got home due to their happy/calm energy levels. We would definitely recommend Alaina for in home sitting as we will be calling her next time we have a trip!

I had a very positive experience with Alaina. From the start, she was very communicative about her availability and was able to meet my needs despite her busy schedule. She came out for a pre-visit, arrived on time and established an instant rapport with my dog and two cats. I intend to book Alaina in the future.

Alaina was our third host/experience through DogVacay and the first that we had overnight in our own home. She was great. Bruno, our 2 year old rescue, has pretty bad separation anxiety, so we were a bit anxious and excited (at the same time) to see how he behaved with someone in his space. Alaina said he did great! But, I am sure it had a lot to do w/ the patience and attention to detail that Alaina brought to the task. She sent us a couple updates and a video of Bruno hanging out in the backyard. When we returned, he seemed totally happy and calm; like we never left.

This was the second time that Alaina watched our pups. They are two active pit mixes, so a lot of muscle to walk around! Everything has gone over well both times and she even sent us a pictures to show our little loves snuggling up, which made us happy. I have no doubt we will reach out to her again in the future.

Alaina is a great find for in home sitting. She was flexible in setting up a meet and greet, during which my dog was very excited to meet her and frolic around her yard. During the sitting itself all arrangements were handled and I felt at ease knowing my dog was well cared for while I was out of town.

Alaina took amazing care of Emma! She kept in constant touch with us and we could tell that Emma had an amazing time. Alaina was also great about giving Emma her allergy meds. Highly recommended!
We felt great trust with Alaina! She took great care of our dog and scheduling was easy and seamless. She was available semi last minute and was friendly upon meeting.
Alaina was great! She was flexible about drop off and pick up times and answered calls/texts within a few minutes. I don't think my dog wanted to leave! I will definitely be asking her to watch my dog in the future.
Alaina was great with our puppy Chocolate, we had a number of activities Halloween weekend with our son and a family member who had volunteered to stay with him cancelled last minute, and we literally learned about DogVacay the day before! Alaina quickly responded within an hour, and we set up a time to bring him over the next day. She has a nice fenced in yard and was also watching an older dog which was great for our little guy to get some socialization. She sent a few photos that night to keep us connected. When it came to pick up she was flexible with the timing and she was outside hanging out with both dogs when we arrived. We will definitely consider Alaina again in the future!
