About Traci

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
A Bed and Barkfest CAGE FREE, SMOKE FREE "JUST LIKE HOME" vacation for your doggie!
**************************************
I provide loving care for your dog while you are vacationing, Perhaps you just want a safe and happy place to bring your dog for the day to play and relax while you are away.

My home is a really great place for small to medium doggies who are a little TIMID, OR SKITTISH or they've just had really BAD EXPERIENCES staying overnight in other places. I have many EXCELLENT references and repeat clients.

I will walk your dog on grass or shaded trails several times a day, brush them, provide wonderful aromatherapy pet massage with essential oils (Peace and Calming or Lavender Oils are the doggies favorite, and I only use high quality medical grade oils that are safe for dogs)play indoor frisbee and ball time with them and I offer them lots of love.

I will follow your specific instructions for their care so your doggy can count on his or her normal routine. I allow them to roam free in my home and I have wonderful walking trails and a grassy area for them to play as well as a fenced in small back yard where they can go potty or watch the birds in the trees.

I promise your pup will be very well cared for and I offer a wonderful alternative to kennels where your dog may have to stay in a cage for up to 20 hours per day. Your dogs will be very relaxed and happy upon your arrival to pick them up and take them home.

I love rescue dogs and take care to give them very special and quiet attention, if that is what they desire. Also: I usually only take small dogs (under 30 lbs) however I do make an exception if your larger dog is well behaved, enjoys the company of small dogs. I also have a home based group travel business, so I will be with them most of the time throughout their day. They are seldom left alone.

I take the pups to Acacia Park in the mornings, close to my home a few times a week (with owners permission) so they can burn off some steam and chase the ball!

Your dog will be free to roam around my house like they would in your home. They can sleep with me or on their doggy bed or in their crate, Their choice!

Please email me with your inquiries. I offer a complimentary Meet and Greet half hour consultation so you and your pets will feel comfortable with their environment prior to coming to stay with me.

I have fantastic references from long term regular clients so please feel free to contact me and I will happily share their contact information with you.

I look forward to meeting you and your pup very soon!

A great stay for our dog,Sam! Sam is an elderly dog with arthritis, so we needed a place where he could move around and get some exercise. Traci provided this for him and her other pets, and Sam was returned to us happy and as fit as he can be. In addition, we always knew how he was doing by her daily messages to us. We thank Traci for her tender loving care with Sam and we are glad we found her.

Traci was very nice. I could tell she took good care of Lola. I would not hesitate to let her stay there again. Her house was clean and smelled very so good. I appreciated the daily updates and photos she sent us!
Traci was great with Dempsey and with us :-) She kept us updated with several updates and pics every day. And Dempsey enjoyed his visit, having fun with her other Dogvacay visitors and enjoying movie night on the couch!
This was our second booking with Traci and even though it was just for one night, our minds were put at rest knowing our pup was in safe hands!
We are very particular about who watches our little baby. Being new to Las Vegas, we were nervous about leaving our pup behind while we went off on vacation.

The meet-and-greet with Traci went a long way toward allaying our fears. She has a clean, lovely home. She had other client dogs present, but they were small dogs like our Pomeranian. We explained our concerns about our dog's interaction with the others- she had surgery as a puppy and has pins in her neck, and we fear she is too fragile for rough play with high-spirited dogs- and Traci assured us she would keep her separated from the other dogs. Our dog has other peculiarities, and Traci took note in order to make her feel at home. All in all, we felt pretty good about entrusting Traci with our dog.

While on vacation we received, at a minimum, updates twice a day. Always text updates, accompanied by photos. We could see all the way from Maui that our dog was in good, loving hands. This is probably what we appreciated most about Traci; she understood our concerns and went way above and beyond to make us comfortable leaving our dog behind.

Until recently, going out of town without our dog meant a four hour drive so that our daughter could babysit for us. While she is always willing to help us out, it was supremely inconvenient and limiting as far as planning trips. We feel really fortunate to have found Traci and we will definitely be calling on her again.

Traci is very caring and professional!. It's the first time experience of my dog for daycare. I was very worried since my dog was very shy and unsocial. However, my concern was gone within very first few hours of the first day. My dog was really enjoying and happy at the place with Traci and he even made good friends. I highly recommend her and you won't regret. I am so glad that I found her!

Traci was great. This was my first time to leave my dog with her. She text me several times during the day to keep me updated. She took the anxiety way about leaving my dog. Will use her often and would highly recommend her. David
Traci was friendly and loving with Tofu. We will most definitely use her again!
Traci took excellent care of our Pom Charlie. He was not stressed at all staying and very comfortable staying with her. I like that she sent us pictures of Charlie every day. I highly recommend her!!
Traci was an absolute star when she looked after our dog Winston. We were really nervous about leaving him and she completely put our minds at rest. She sent us photos every day while we were away and was really flexible with the pick up time when my flight was delayed. Will definitely rebook if we ever go away again!

Traci was awesome. Gen, a rescue, was very nervous at first and Traci helped in getting Gen to calm down. She took her on walks and spent time with her and that night, Gen slept the entire night.

I would gladly use Traci again. She is just what I'm looking for when I have to leave a member of the family!

This was our second stay with Traci. Every thing went well. She had a few other small dogs staying at the same time so she had us text 5 min before arriving so she could put them "away" to avoid craziness at the front door when we arrived.
She pays attention to instructions about when to feed and give vitamins, etc. I also brought along a page listing our daily routine, which I have done with other sitters. I can't expect someone to remember a bunch of details I rattle off.
Traci text me pictures and notes each day, which is so nice.
We will be back again!

Teddy had the best time ever with Traci! She took him on multiple walks each day, he was brushed to perfection, and felt right at home with her! I would highly recommend Traci to anyone in need of a loving pet sitter :)
I feel so lucky to have found Traci.. She is truly a dog lover. My dog took to her immediately. I have never boarded my dog before and had all kinds of fears about her flipping out, but she did great! It feels so good to have someone I can trust taking care of my baby. I highly recommend her and will be using her again in a few weeks.

Traci is very good with pets, professional, and loving, caring. Love to see her again
Traci Z. truly has been an "Angel in Disguise" for both me and my silver mini-schnauzer, Daisy. Traci is a professional woman whose kindness and genuine care shines through.

Leaving my elderly - 14 y/o - Daisy behind when I travel has always been a stressfull event. Habitually, the 1st 2-3 days in a new environment without me, Daisy will find a corner to curl up in and begins her "doggie hunger strike". These nervous reactions have decreased in time & severity while in Traci's care.

Without getting into all the patience shown & personal attention given by Traci, rather, I'd like to offer the following list of "surprise" (totally unexpected) services that she provided during Daisy's stay at Traci's warm, clean and inviting home:

» Daisy's choice...sleep on Traci's bed or in her own dog bed in Traci's bedroom.
» Daisy got to try Staci's freshly-baked doggie bicuits
» Every item that could be washed (blankets, toels, etc.) was washed, dried, and folded.
» GREAT Morning Routine: allows doggies (one @ a time) to the outside patio (where she enjoys her morning java). This way, each dog is able to eat their own food in peace opposed to a doggie buffet.
» Traci spends floor-time playing with her 4-legged visitors
» Daisy was sparkling clean, freshly scented and fluffy soft when I picked her up!

In a nutshell.....Traci has earned the "Angel in Disguise" award in the category of - Loving Care 4 Pets!

Traci was such an awesome host for our Henrie. She treated him with such personal care just for him. He got spoiled with much love and attention for her. Henrie was really comfortable with her and enjoyed his stay when usually he experiences more separation anxiety. She was great with giving us updates and sending us pictures. We would definitely use Traci again! Awesome host!

We have never used a service like this and have nothing but positive things to say about Traci Z. She treated our dog like it was her own. We received daily pics and updates about how he was doing. We are grateful for her care and will use her over and over again. We would highly recommend Traci to care for your dog.

Traci was an awesome host to our Meadow. From the moment we dropped her off, we knew our little one would be in good hands. Daily updates and photos set our mind at ease. Whenever we go away and need a place for our pup to go to, this is definitely the place.

This was my first time using dog vacay, and I am so glad I had Traci! My puppy is only 4 months old, and Traci was so kind about making sure she (and I to be honest) didn't get separation anxiety. Loved the picture and text updates. Also was extremely thankful to have someone so attentive to a puppies needs and be so understanding to my little Izzy still being inconsistent when it comes to being completely house trained. Definitely plan on using Traci again, she is a great find here on dogvacay!

Traci was amazing with my baby.
This was my first time using DogVacay but I had no hesitation in booking with her because of all the amazing reviews.
She always sent me photos of what my dog was doing throughout the day. Even gave my dog a massage and she smelled so good after. I would recommend most certainly recommend Traci!

From the time of our meet and greet I just knew we made the right choice for our Rudy. He loved Traci and felt at home. There was no hesitation when we dropped him off for his DogVacay. Traci kept us up to date with his activities throughout the day and sent us pics. I was anxious because our flight was delayed in returning home but Traci was gracious and put me at ease. Thank you so much Traci for loving our Rudy while we were gone!!

Traci was very professional and friendly. She sent me photos of Oreo everyday and always provided me with updates. We could tell our Oreo had a great stay. She even washed Oreo's blanket and her leash. What a pleasant surprise! We will definitely go back to her next time.

Traci is amazing! My dog loves going to her house and does not want to leave . He has so much fun with the other dogs and really enjoys when Traci brushes him. He is also tired when I pick him up from the walks and excitement he has at her house. She is also so sweet and truly loves animals

At first I thought it was a perfect fit, I simply asked about a pickup time because our flight was getting in close to 8 pm. and what I got was a lecture on how I don't value her business. Of course I did or I wouldn't have reached out to her to begin with, I didn't like being lectured or talked down to, that is far from professional. She is not a humble human being and we our better off to find this out now. Someone who dog sits for a living shouldn't have such an attitude. After all we our the consumer!

Traci is absolutely amazing!! We have had her care for our dog several times now, and each time is wonderful. Our elderly dog loves staying with her and is spoiled the entire time we are gone. (She even pouts when we return to our home for a day or two because she had so much fun with Traci!) Traci sends us pictures and updates regularly, and is very flexible to meet our needs. We wouldn't choose anyone else to watch our little old lady! :)

We've used DogVacay before ... multiple times. I'm confident that Traci would rank in the top percentile in the world, and most parents don't have child care as good as the care that our dog, Maverick, received during his stay. She followed our instructions to the letter, and she sent photos and progress reports so we were able to feel great about our decision to use Traci. When we returned, Maverick's belongings were assembled and clean. Maverick was clean, and he smelled great. I don't think he wanted to leave, and we assured him that he could return in the future. She takes only small dogs, and she has special time for each of them. My wife and I recommend her in the most magnificent way. She is great ... actually, beyond great. By the way, Traci's son is an accomplished cellist, who does dog concerts when he's home. Unbelievable!!!

This is the second time we have used Traci's service. We are very pleased with everything Traci offers. I wanted to give my dog a little break from the mundane routine at home, as well as us a break. We were doing some spring cleaning, and wanted to be able to move around our condo without our little guy getting in the way and feeling ignored and scared. So off to Traci's house we went for a slumber party. Even though there were thunderstorms that evening, we felt confident our furry baby was safe and comforted. He had a grand time with the other two doggies that were in Traci's care! When we picked him up and brought him home he looked happy and tired! Perfect combination for our Jack Russell!
We are looking forward to his upcoming stay in August. I know he will be well taken care of.
Thanks again Traci! :)

Five Stars, FANTASTIC! I never worry about Panda when she is with Traci Z! She keeps me updated while I am away. Panda comes home contented and Happy!!Nancy
It is stressful trying to find someone to watch your furry friends. My boyfriend and I were going to go out of town for the weekend and I was worried about leaving our dog in boarding. I stumbled upon this website DogVacay and started looking at pet sitters in my local area. I looked at a few profiles. Traci sounded amazing. I loved that she only took up to 3 dogs at a time and only up to 30 pounds. This sounded perfect as I have a Parson Jack Russell Terrier who is 21 pounds. So I set up a time to meet, on short notice. My dog can be a bit of a spaz and he doesn't let anyone touch or pet him. He also is a bit quirky. I was amazed when we went over to Traci's that he let her pet him! He sat down by her and she touched and pet him. He was investigating the house and being inquisitive. Traci took him for a walk and we separated. Traci kept in excellent contact with me the entire time. The first few hours were the hardest for him, most likely experiencing separation anxiety. Traci text me saying he was barking but she gave him a lavender oil massage and he calmed right down. She also text me letting me know that he was getting along famously with the two other dogs that she was sitting. She had my dog outside playing with the hose water. It rained and he was jumping around trying to catch the raindrops. He loves the water. I was really happy that he was playing and having fun. I love that Traci takes the dogs for walks and the lavender oil sounds like a miracle! She puts it on their paws at night and it calms them down and helps them sleep through the night. When my boyfriend and I picked up Charlie, he looked great and happy. I feel very comfortable with Traci and plan to leave Charlie in her care in the future. Thank you so much for taking such great care of my furry best friend! I even think Charlie is looking forward to having a doggie vacay.

Traci is outstanding! Our pup, Judi, had a ball! Four weeks out of knee surgery, we were super hesitant to leave her, but due to circumstances we had to make arrangements. Traci treated her like a queen. From medications to lavender brushings Judi clearly didn't want to come home :). Traci sent pictures and communicated through calls and text. We feel so incredibly fortunate to have Traci as Judi's new caregiver! Judi loves Traci, and so do we!!!

My lovely Pop Corn had a wonderful time at Traci's place. Pop corn suffers from separation anxiety & wont eat while we r away but Traci managed to find a way to feed her, took her for lots of walks, gave her a bath along with an oil massage :)

Traci kept me updated of pop corn's activities by sending me sms & pics of Pop corn playing with another puppy / pop corn relaxing which made me really happy knowing that my dog is well taken care of, safe, pampered & happy :)

Traci's boarding place is very welcoming, providing excellent care, therefore, I highly recommend sending your dear dog to Traci's boarding place where excellent service is guaranteed.

This is our first time sending out dogs to a dog sitter and we were very worried about leaving them with a new person. After the initial greet and meet, we had a good feeling about Traci, as she has a very warm, caring personality and seemed to really enjoy the company of dogs.

Traci was wonderful with our 3 rescue dogs, each with their own very distinct personalities. We received many updates and photos during the two weeks the dogs were with her. Traci is very observant and was able to identify the causing issue when our puppy acted up. She promptly notified us and provided details for us to let her know how to handle the situation. She did everything she can to make sure that the dogs are happy and healthy.

We are happy that we've found Traci. Now we can have peace of mind when we are on vacation and know that the dogs are well taken care of.

Traci was amazing! I've never left my girls anywhere before and was a bit nervous about it.
She did everything she said she would; walk them, bathe them, baked treats for them and most of all, she sent me many pictures and texts of how my girls were doing that have me a great peace of mind. I would totally reach out to Traci if had to leave town again.

Thank you!!

Traci was easy to get a hold of and prompt with her response from when we first contacted her. This was our first time leaving our dogs with a stranger but we felt at ease as well as the dogs during our meet and greet and got great feedback from her references. The dogs seemed to enjoy themselves and got plenty of walks and treats during their stay. She also sent pictures and updates daily. We will definitely use her again.

Traci is as good as they get. She took wonderful care of Charmin and kept us informed of their activities along the way. We got to enjoy our trip and Charmin enjoyed her new experience. I will definitely call Trace next time we need a stay-cation for Charmin in the Las Vegas area. This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't be happier. It is a wonderful service.

We were so thrilled to find a Home away from home for our Pooches!
I only wish that I could give 6 STARS! After spending time with Traci we were surprised that our dog even wanted to come home. After reading her reviews and a quick phone call, we decided to leave our dog with her while we were away. We found that not only did our dog receive the excellent care that we expected, in fact Traci by far exceeded our expectations. Do not hesitate to choose Traci for your dogs stay- click the "make reservation" button already!

Traci was awesome from the start! I am someone that has been on multiple Meet & Greets and is very particular about who I let my fur baby, Nala, stay with. After getting to know her during the Meet & Greet, I could tell that she genuinely cared about the furry friends that she watches and wasn't only in it for the money. Traci just proved that the "good feeling" I had about her was a reality after watching Nala for the first time. I loved the updates that she sent and the fact that I knew Nala was in a nice home rather than locked up in a kennel like at a regular pet hotel. Nala enjoyed the yummy treats and walks too! Traci is wonderful and I would highly recommend her!

Traci provided amazing love and lodging for our rambunctious Bichon Frise! She was walked and brushed and fed gourmet home made treats while there. I really appreciated the daily updates online from Traci letting me know how my Panda Bear was doing in her new environment. I would recommend her to anyone with a pampered pet! In fact, we look forward to using her services again in the future!

Traci cared for our dog Mickey over the Thanksgiving weekend. The walks , pampering and updates were much appreciated. Highly recommended!
My husband and I recently moved to Las Vegas and were in need of a dog sitter for our 1-year-old mini daschund, Roxy. We travel quite a bit, so we were looking for someone nice, dependable and trustworthy. As soon as we met Traci, we knew she was the one! She made us feel very welcome in her home when we did our first meet-and-greet and answered any concerns that we might have about leaving Roxy. I was also very impressed with how perfectly clean her home was despite being a dog sitter! And it smelled nice, too!

We left Roxy with her for five days while we were out of town. Throughout each day, Traci sent us photos of Roxy playing, enjoying her walk and relaxing. We knew she was in good hands. When we returned, I stopped by Traci's to pick up Roxy, and Roxy seemed very happy. We've left her at other places before and upon our return to get her she's was a nervous wreck.

Another added bonus was that Traci washed Roxy's bed and blanket for us, so Roxy and her belongings came back smelling like roses. I know Roxy enjoyed her time very much at Traci's, and we look forward to leaving her again with Traci.

Thanks Traci!
