About Alma

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***I offer custom quotes and discounts for new clients, so please don't hesitate to ask me how to save some money!***

My name is Alma and I've been caring for dogs all of my life. I've grown up with family dogs and I rescued my very own dog, a Chihuahua, in December of 2014. My Chihuahua has the pleasure of doing a lot with me - hiking, beach trips, airplane trips, etc.

I live in a great area with a lot of outside room to play and walk. The home is pet friendly for small and large dogs and cats, as my Chihuahua gets along with all other animals small and large.

On a typical day, me and your pet will enjoy play time, treat time and they will receive lots of love.

Alma has looked after both of my dogs, one large, the other smaller and she did a great job. She kept me updated while I was out of town and even sent pictures. Best sitter I've ever had.

Alma often takes care of my dogs and cat when I go out of town. She enjoys playtime with them as much as they enjoy it. She can be depended on to come by as often as agreed on to let them outside and feed them. You can tell how much Alma enjoys animals by how excited they get when they see her.

I would highly recommend Alma, my pups just loved her. She stayed at our house and handled the dogs as if they were her own. She kept me up to date and I am planning on using Alma for all my Doggy Vacay's. Great Job Alma 6 stars!!
This was our first time leaving our puppy so we were a little nervous, but Alma was definitely the right choice! She took great care of our pup, and sent us lots of updates with pictures and videos! I'm glad that we found Alma, and we will definitely use her in the future!
Alma is simply the best! This was our first time to use this service and we could not be happier with the turn out. Alma was always available for updates on how my sweet pup was doing and she really took the time to play with him and make him feel special. I could tell when we left Alma's house, my pup was a little sad to go! Thank you Alma for all that you did! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Alma was great! Such good care of my pups, really thorough and conscientious. She sent lots of photos and updates of them playing, eating, and napping. I am glad (and lucky) to have found such a wonderful pet sitter!
Alma was the perfect person for Lily & me. My first time leaving my dog for a vacation and after leaving her there over Christmas, I knew I made a great choice. Don't hesitate to use her....she's a wonderful, caring pet person!
Alma was wonderful! We had a wedding in Lexington and Alma was 20 minutes from our destination. Her experience was evident from our first conversation. When we arrived, she came out to greet us and introduced her other guests. The pups sniffed each other and then we walked them into her home. Pete took a look around and then flopped down with a toy. He barely knew we left! Alma sent pics throughout Pete's stay. It was evident he felt at home and was having a good time at the park. We'd highly recommend Alma to care for your pup!
Alma was a great host, my dog Henry had a relaxing stay while we were out of town. He seemed very comfortable with her and her dog, and she was kind enough to send daily updates without me having to ask. I will definitely be reaching out to Alma again next time we head out of town!
Alma was so wonderful with Rose. This was our first experience leaving our dog, and she could not have been in better care. When we leave Rose again it is our hope that Alma will be available.
Alma was an incredible host! She watched my dog, Jax, at the last minute as I had to attend to out-of-state work. She was great in terms of providing many daily updates and pictures as to how Jax was doing. During Jax's stay, Alma took him for many walks each day and also took him to a dog park; she ensured that Jax felt right at home, was happy, and received plenty of exercise. Alma is friendly, accommodating and a rockstar sitter. I highly recommend her and her services and look forward to booking through her in the future!
We needed to find someone to watch our teacup chihuahua last minute and Alma was perfect! She replied quickly, even though I made the request late at night, and was willing to have our dog dropped off early the next morning. She did a wonderful job and even sent us pictures and videos while we were away. I felt very confident leaving our little puppy with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs someone in the Winston-Salem area.
Dog Vacay and Alma are a life saver. She took great care of our two older labs even texted pics and updated us while we were away. Provided a home environment for them. Very satisfied with this service, highly recommend and will use again.
Alma did a great job with Sophie and I would highly recommend her to any other DogVacay-ers out there! She was flexible and worked around our drop-off and pickup times. She also provided regular updates throughout the weekend, including pictures and videos. Those really helped us feel at ease knowing our pup was doing well and settling in.
My dog always stayed at my father's house when I had to leave out of town but my dad past away so he lost his buddy and my dog of 10 years old has never stayed in a kennel overnight so I was not sure how he would handle being left in a kennel. Alma took great care of my dog allowing him to stay in her home like he was visiting a friend. She let me know how he was doing during the course of his stay so I did not worry.
Alma is very personable, took great care of my dogs, and was even able to juggle some last minute chaos that fumbled my trip a little! We'll be using her from now on.
Alma is a life saver! We are from out of town but had a medical emergency that required us to be at the local hospital, and we wanted our dogs close. After booking last minute, Alma messaged me immediately to answer all my questions. I dropped off my two large dogs the next day and she invited me to stay for a bit to make sure they were settled in. Each day, she took them for several walks, bike rides, or to the park to make sure they burned off energy. She also sent pictures and updates everyday and let me visit them whenever I had the chance. Will definitely be booking with her again!
