About Alyssa

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I`m Alyssa and I would love to look after your fur babies!

A little bit about myself, I just moved to Virginia from Saratoga Springs NY with my husband who is in his 3rd year serving in the US Navy. We have only lived here for about 1 year but i have to say I dont think i ever want to leave! We have three furbabies at home currently one is named Hershey- A 2 year old Black Lab he was supposed to be a short term foster but we couldn't let him go. our other furbaby is named Charlie, he is a 11 year old beagle who we just adopted on 10/4/2016 to help Hershey cope with the loss of Nessarose, our 7 month old beagle who lost her battle with liver failure on October 3rd 2016 and Faith who we adopted from the Peninsula SPCA in January 2017

Our house has two floors and the dogs have free range of every room in the house as well as full access to our couch and bed. we have a nice sized back yard however it is not fenced in, we have our dogs out on either leashes or their leads if they are outside and for safety they are never left out alone or without multiple bowls of water!

We recently renovated our spare bedroom from a simple storage space to a puppies only play room and bedroom. On rainy days your pups can play to there hearts content inside and by bed time they will have a safe space to relax that they can call there own in there home away from home

We are also recently bought a hard plastic kiddie pool for our pups to help keep them cool during these 90+ degree summer days.

We have our dogs on a pretty set schedule so if you have yours on one as well just let me know and I will follow yours strictly!
As a safety precaution all of the dogs that stay with me will be issued a dogvacay dogtag to wear while they are here. In the highly unlikely event that they run away while in my care each tag has my contact information as well as my husband's and the dogvacay insurance company. We have not had a runner yet and I don't plan on ever having one but it's better safe than sorry!!!

Along with being a furmom/housewife, i work part time at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. working for dogvacay is also my part time job and i love every minute of it. From meeting new dogs on a daily basis to my puppies getting to be more social I have never had a bad day or bad dog, its true that when you do a job you love you never work a day in your life,if you book with me i will promise to put your Pets first just as if they were mine.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page and i hope to get to know you and your babies real soon!


PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT I TYPICALLY ONLY CARE FOR ONE GUEST FAMILY AT A TIME TO INSURE SAFETY AMONG MY GUEST

Alyssa was a great dog sitter for my Jiminy. She was very understanding and patient of his issues and provided excellent care. We will definitely be using her services again!
Alyssa is amazing and incredibly sensitive to my dogs' needs. One is shy, and the other is very outgoing, and she was so great with both. She sent pictures all day which quelled my anxiety about leaving them somewhere new. She didn't even bat an eye at having to give my little guy medication. We will definitely be using her in the future! She is a lifesaver!

My boys were well taken care of. Alyssa is home all the time and provides continuous care. I received several pics and a video of my dogs which I very much enjoyed and appreciated. The only down side is the place seemed a little dirty but they have several pets of there own. She also offered for me to bring my dogs by prior to the start date to be sure they will get along with there dogs. She is very nice and I would recommend her to watch your dogs.
