About Em

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! Thank you for your interest in having us care for your pet.

My family and I live in beautiful Park City, Utah. We are proud pet parents of two guinea pigs, a cat, and a Wheaten Terrier-Poodle (Woodle) rescue dog named “Miso”. Miso loves other dogs and is everyone's best friend at the dog park!

We have a large, dog-friendly, two story home with plenty of space and a covered deck. Dogs are allowed on beds and couches, if you wish. (We will adhere to your rules, to keep your dog’s routine as normal as possible.) We occasionally take care of friends' and neighbors' animals while they are at work or on vacation, so we are experienced care takers. Our house is next to the Park City Canyons Ski Resort, the Waldorf Hotel, and a short ten minute walk from the expansive Willow Creek Dog Park, where we take Miso several times a day. Park City has a plethora of hiking trails, cross country ski trails, and several dog parks, so if your dog loves to walk or run, we’d love to take him out for some doggy fun. My husband works from home and my nine year old daughter, Bella, is homeschooled, so there is always somebody at our house to care for your pet. Bella has been taught to respect all creatures and has been “trained” to work and play with many types of animals. I am a part-time teacher by day and I go home in the afternoon, so I am also available to care for your furry (or not-so-furry) friend. I have loved and cared for animals of all kinds for over 30 years and I have been an animal rescue volunteer for over 10 years. We are able to care for your pet in our home or yours and are flexible and open to special requests. If your pet has issues with children or other dogs, we are able to accommodate but we ask that you let us know in advance. If necessary, the two stories of our house can easily be separated. Our desire is to keep your pet safe, comfortable and happy while you are away or vacationing in Park City. We understand that leaving your furry friend with a sitter can be stressful, so we are happy to send you frequent updates and pictures, to ease your mind.

Please note that we are in high demand over the holidays, as Park City is a resort town. Stays that include any of the following dates may be priced at my holiday rates. Dates include, but are not limited to:

-January 16-20, Martin Luther King Weekend,
-January 21-February 3, Sundance Film Festival
-February 13-17, Valentine's Day and President's Day
-April 3-April 6, Easter,
-May 22-May 26, Memorial Weekend,
-July 3-July 6, Independence Weekend,
-September 4-7, Labor Day
-November 25-30, Thanksgiving
-December 18-January 3, Christmas & New Years

Please feel free to contact us with any questions. All situations are different, so times and rates may be negotiable. We look forward to meeting and loving your furry friends!

Em was wonderful! Very easy and convenient location for drop off and pick up, and Boomer had so much fun while he was there (I could tell because he was so tired he slept like a baby for a full day after I picked him up!) Overall a really great experience-- I would definitely leave Boomer with Em again next time I come to Park City!
Em and her daughter Bella were the absolute greatest! She sent photos of my little pup (it was his first time away from us) often, and consistently made sure that I knew he was in good, loving hands. I would book her again in a heartbeat.
Our family had such a great experience with Em watching our little Diego. I would rate 10 stars if I could!

While on vacation in Park City for Christmas/New Year's week, we luckily found Em who took such great care of our 9 month old puppy. We felt so good (and not worried while skiing :) after meeting Em for the first time and leaving him for the day.

He got so much exercise! Each day, Em took him hiking and to play with other dogs at the best dog park I've ever seen. Diego got along great with the other host dogs, as well as her dogs, who are so sweet!

Em's such a nice person and is great with dogs. After meeting her, I felt that she takes her business very seriously and is a responsible professional. Our pup was so happy to see her each time we dropped him off! We were also impressed to know that Em uses a GPS collar and seat belts for doggies when out and about. I only wish we lived closer to each other so we could drop Diego with Em for daycare more!

This is our first experience with Dog Vacay, and we couldn't be happier with Em. Having someone take such great care of our little man, made our vacation perfect. Thank you Em!
Em saved our vacation! We brought our two dogs to Park City but it was our puppy's first trip. Our puppy did not do well in the hotel with all the noises so we found Em and she watched them during the days so we could ski. She took the dogs to the park for hours at a time and sent pictures of them playing. We had them stay overnight at her house and we got very tired but very happy pups back the next day! Em is very nurturing and a true dog lover. They love her and we will definitely ask Em to watch them next time we are in Park City!

Thanks, Em!
Em.was fantastic and so nice. We left a harness at her house and she even came to meet me and return it! Great house, cute neighborhood and a good family.
Em is so great with our dog Ollie. She made us feel so comfortable with leaving him in her care. It was just for a night but she made sure to send us plenty of photos and updates on how our pup was doing. We will have no issues using her in the future.
Em and her family did a wonderful job caring for our dog Angel. She was treated like one of the family and received quite a bit of love and attention. We loved the photos and updates we received on her daily adventures. We would highly recommend her for pet care, and would definitely trust her with our Angel in the future. Thank you so much!!!
Em and her family were wonderful dog sitters. I requested a stay last minute when I had a change of plans and Em responded immediately and was thankfully able to accommodate for Blitz. She is very friendly and you can tell she really loves animals. I felt very comfortable leaving my pup with her, and I really appreciated all the cute pictures I received through Blitz's stay, assuring me everything was going well. I would highly recommend!
I thought em did amazing and I would recommend her to anyone. She knows what she's doing and I totally trust her. From the moment we stepped in her home you could tell you can trust her with your pup. Or with anything for that matter. Thank you em for watching her for us. We will come back.
Em was awesome. I loved the photos and very professional.
Em and her family did great! I didn't receive any photos today, but I did yesterday. They forgot some of my dog's things but were quick to respond when I brought it to their attention.
Em and her family family did a very good job taking care of my pup. It was his first time away from family so he was sad. but they made sure he got opportunities to be happy. I know they took him to the dog park, she sent photos.
I am happy and I would not hesitate to use Em and her family again.
We were so lucky to have found Em and her family. We came to Park City to oversee the construction of our house, and wanted to visit the National Parks while we were here. Our yellow lab was welcomed with open arms and lots of affection. We were worried about leaving our pup for a week, but Em sent us pics everyday of Hadley playing with other dogs, swimming at the dog park, and getting hugs from Em's daughter. We have found a wonderful friend; and are thrilled that when we return to Park City, we will have a place for our girl when we have to be away. Em is the best! We can recommend her with great enthusiasm.
My pooch was well taken care of by super friendly people. What more could I ask for?
Our dog, Bear, had the time of his life! Each day was filled with hours of fun activities with other dogs and puppies. Em did an amazing job of keeping Bear entertained and updated us with pictures every night on how he was doing. We would recommend Em to anyone looking for an experienced and caring person to look after their dog. We will definitely return back and have Bear stay again!
Em is a gem! She knows dogs! She was a terrific sitter for my 2 puppies. I am thrilled that I found her! Thanks Em for everything!
Em was the absolute best! My two boys, Bear and Beau had the greatest time and were so loved! I felt so comfortable knowing they were so happy. I received photo updates every day of them hiking and playing at the dog park, and I'm pretty sure they hated to leave. I recommend Em so highly, she will exceed any expectations you have!
Em was absolutely wonderful to work with and took great care of our dog. She sent us photos of him and gave great updates. Would definitely book with Em again.
Em,thank you so much for loving my dogs, taking them on hikes, sending pictures, when we picked them up,they were totally wore out from all the fun!!!!@and clean,thanks for the baths, i wish i would of found you earlier in the week,would definitely take them to you
I can not say it enough. I am extremely grateful to Em for watching my fur best pal while I was away. I am not local to PC and was completely weary of leaving my baby at a local kennel. I was so ecstatic to find Em and that she had the space for my boy. She was extremely professional and caring with my daily updates along with pics of what fun my little guy was getting into. I will leave him again, if I ever have to leave PC again for an extended period of time. Duke got to sleep on a bed like he's used to and run and play daily. She also took him on some family field trips with them! Duke had a blast and I couldn't be happier with her care.Thank you so very much Em for loving my Duke and giving me peace of mind while I was miles away.
Em was quick & consistent with her communication, kept us abreast of the stay while we were on vacation with messages and pictures, and a true professional while being warm & caring.
Em was great - our dog, Splinter had a fantastic time, we would definitely have him come visit again!!
My two dogs had a great time with Em. She took them hiking and to the dog park! Em has a gentle and kind way with dogs. Mine took to her right away! Thanks Em!
I highly recommend this dog sitter! She was prompt with her responses and I received pictures and feedback during the time she was sitting my dog. I will definitely use her again.
Jax had a great time when he stayed with Em. Will definitely use her again next time I leave town.
Sawyer was treated like the little prince by Em and Bella! I think Bella found a new bestie- It appeared the days were eventful and alot of playtime for an only dog- it waa the best. Sawyer met a cat racoons, other dogs, things he SO needed to experience with Em's wonderful caution & safety of course. But as an only dog, Sawyer desperately needed socialization and the attention he is used to. This family did all and above! Sawyer will only be staying with Em and family, considering they can fit him in. :-) To be out of the country and emjoy my vacation with no worry about my lil boy was a true vacay. Thank you for the text updates and pics of Sawyer and his exoeriences, I loved seeing him at the dinner table.:-) too cute
Thank you. You were (are) an angel- really.

I am SO glad that I found Em to take care of Maybel. It was my first time leaving her with a non-family member, and in an unfamiliar city, so I was nervous. Em was over-the-top attentive to Maybel's happiness and safety, and worked with her on her separation anxiety. I received photo updates throughout the stay that provided me with so much piece of mind. Maybel had a blast playing with Em's dog Miso. Em took them on hikes, gave them the run of the home, and even let Maybel sleep in the bed.
They sent us home with a bully stick and a happy pup. I really can't recommend Em enough Thank you!!
What a relief to find Em! I felt completely confident leaving my dog in her care. Very sweet, understanding of different dogs, and flexible. Will definitely keep her mind the next visit to park city
We are so grateful we found Em to watch our little Shih Tzu puppy, Izzi, while we were out of town! It was our first time being away from Izzi, and I was so impressed at the tender care Em and her family gave our pup. It was especially sweet how the whole family got involved in Izzi's care. We received frequent photos of her playing with Em's dog and going on hikes with family members. Izzi was even freshly bathed this morning when we picked her up. Puppies take a little extra love and care, and Em definitely delivered! :)
