About Monica

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am the mommy of 2 loving doggies, Bandit and Stella! Bandit is a schnauzer and Stella is a beagle. We live in Boca Raton and would love to take care of your doggies at my place with a fenced in back and front yard. I give them so much attention and love! I play with them all the time. This is my primary business so I am always at home! We play fetch the doggie toys, frisbees if they like that, cuddle and relax at home. We have a lot of grass area in our back/front yard so they can run around a lot and I am always watching them and with them. I am a dog lover of all breeds and sizes, grew up with doggies my whole life.

Why I love dog sitting

I have been a dog lover since I was born! Since I was little I was raised with dogs and have an immense love for them. I always wanted to be a vet! I have been a vet assistant in the past, and volunteered in animal shelters, and given charity to animal rescues. I have fostered as well in the past. I have grown up with beagles, German shepherds, collies, chihuahuas, schnauzers, malteses, and mixed terriers! My pups are my family and I will treat your pups like a part of mine. This is my dream job, to take care of them. They are all a bundle of joy!

About my yard

Completely Fenced in backyard and front yard with lots of room to run around and play. Lots of dog toys, especially with our monthly Barkbox!

Where they will sleep
Your pups can choose where they can sleep. Either on our bed, or the couch or doggie bed.

I send pics and messages throughout the day!

At feeding times, they will be separated and I wait with them so they can eat comfortably.

I can also bathe them if you would like, brush their hair and clean their eye boogies or ears.

They will be pampered!

My dog was soooo loved with Monica and her family. Monica was very accommodating, professional, responded quickly to my questions, made me feel good with all the photo updates, and she is pretty close to my own home. I travel often for work, so I am putting her on speed dial :) I'm glad she likes Byron.
Our dogs Charlie and Rocky really enjoyed their Vacay with Monica. She kept us posted with Pics and texts regarding their progress. We picked up our cuties on a Sunday and both were fine and happy to see us. Rocky is a senior dog, and has special needs and Monica took care of him perfectly. She has a nice and safely protected back yard, with great lighting for night. We will definately have our dogs on a Vacay with Monica soon !
Monica is an angel her and so does my god diamond ..
We set up a meet and greet, her family and their dogs were great. Luna didn't want to get back in the car to go home !!Monica sent pics throughout the stay assuring me that the dogs were having a great time together. She has a great fenced in yard, so the dogs played until they wore themselves out. It's hard to find someone comfortable with bigger dogs. I'm glad she DogVacay sitter, she is really great !!
Monica is AMAZING! We were driving in from out of town and Monica let us do a late-evening drop off. (That was the first thing we loved about her!) Over the next few days, Monica sent tons of updates and photos of my 9-year-old dog, being doted on and smiling broadly. I can't tell you how much peace of mind it gave me to know that my dog was being taken care of so well and having a wonderful time. The *only* thing that gave me pause was when I picked up my dog and - no kidding - she looked back and forth between Monica and me before "finally" deciding that she would come home with me. Thank you, Monica!
I am very happy, Golda was very happy many thank to care our dog
What a wonderful experience!! Gracie was happy and well cared for, and I loved the pictures that I received of her while she was with Monica. Also, super at responding quickly to texts, email. Would definitely use again.
Monica did a great job of taking care of our pup, he was well cared for while we were away! I look forward to using her again.
My wife and I own a very high energy and large (65 lbs.) Aussiedoodl. This was her third vacay with Monica and I could not recommend her higher! While we were out of the country, Monica kept us updated through the app with pictures of our puppy playing with her family and other furry guests everyday. Will definitely be using her for future stays! e
Monica is so wonderful! She was very flexible with dates and times. She has great fenced front and back yards for the dogs. She also let them sleep in bed with her so they felt right at home!! Will definately use her again!
Monica was really amazing throughout our entire experience. She was very easy to communicate with and had a great attitude. She had several dogs at the house and all seemed happy and that they were enjoying their stay and she was very calm. Bella seemed to have a great time. I will definitely have Bella stay with Monica again in the future!
Monica is an excellent pup-sitter. She deserves 10 stars, but there are only 5 available. This was our first time using the site and we left our 12 pound, 10 year old pup with her for 6 days. She sent daily photos with comments, letting us know our little guy was occupied and comfortable. We are definitely going to ask for her help in the future. Monica is very friendly and responsive. Thank you so much Monica!
Monica and her family were great with my dog and I am completely satisfied and recommend her 100%. My dog was very happy in the pictures she always updated me with. If your doggy needs a vacay, you can count on Monica!
I will start by saying that it is always concerning as a pet owner to leave your pet with others...the bottom line is that you never feel like someone else will treat your pet like you do. But with that said I have to admit that leaving my pug with Monica was one of the best decisions I could make for my loveable pug.

I happen to have a pet who always tells me a story when I pick him up from boarding (non-verbal of course) but I can always tell if:

1. He was treated well
2. He was loved or shown attention

I have to say that after leaving him with Monica for boarding he was inundated with both of those things. She is GENUINELY a great pet caregiver and I feel fortunate to have found her.

I wouldn't think twice about leaving my pet (Cezar) with her anytime and neither should you! Thanks Monica for making this easy. :)
Monica was positively fantastic!! She went the extra mile (literally) and picked up my dog as I had a very early plane to catch. She send pictures and comments every day. I highly recommend her as s loving dog sitter.
Took great care of our pup for the night. Jengo Fett had so much fun she was tuckered out for the rest of the day when we picked her up. We truly appreciate your help. Thank you.
I have used the same sitter for years, so changing was a little scary. I felt immediately comfortable with Monica. She has a large fenced in grass back yard as well as a fenced in front yard. The dogs play in the back when Monica goes out with them, but the front yard fence gives an extra measure of security. The grass in the back yard is in excellent condition with plenty of space to run.

My dog is very timid and within hours of leaving her, I was receiving pictures of her sitting happily in Monica's lap and playing with her beagle and schnauzer. Even better I got pictures of Daisy sitting next to her kids giving them kisses and hanging out. I was especially pleased with this as I chose Monica because she has children. I have a baby niece in the family, and I wanted Daisy to spend quality time with children. She slept with Monica at night.

I was gone for a week and got pictures and updates daily, sometimes twice a day. Daisy romped and ran and tugged and pulled toys with Monica's dogs. She spent a lot of time giving Monica kisses and surveying her adopted kingdom. This I know because I got pictures! She even got included in the Easter egg hunt...a big deal for a Jewish dog.

Monica takes good care of her dogs as evidenced by their teeth cleaning appointments that she and I discussed. Her dogs are also kept current on heart worm and flea/tick meds as this is important to me since Daisy is. I feel like I have a new friend in addition to a dog sitter.
Monica was outstanding with my nine week old puppy Winston ! She even shared photos of him with me while I was out for the evening ! I would definitely recommend her and will use her again
Monica and her family are absolutely wonderful!!! They provide a lovely dog friendly and dog safe home environment, and seem to truly love dogs. She was in constant contact, and sent numerous photos each day, which I appreciated very much! I saw that my girl looked relaxed and happy, which allowed me to truly enjoy my vacation. Overall, this was a great experience, and I also appreciate the Monica's flexibility as we needed to drop our girl off early and pick her up late.
