About Sonya

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Please read my Animals Paradise description below before booking for a reservation request. My pickup policy is by 12pm (Noon), if after it would be considered a daycare rate.

Family-oriented living out in the country. With over 17 years of experience with animals of all ages and sizes, including specializing in rescuing and rehabilitated animals.

I am able to administer any medication needed for your pet(s), along with knowledge in Animal First Aid. I am a RVT soon Veterinarian.

With over 50 acres of forest and grass, it's a haven for all animals. I own 4 cats and over dozens of chickens. All of my animals are capable of handling themselves while your pet(s) are here on vacation.

Plenty of space to run around.
Your pet stays at a real home and not in a kennel.

We provide personal, loving care to each pet. They're in a stress-free and healthy environment.

With 24/7 supervision provided by High-Tech security cameras situated all over my property, including inside my home. My boyfriend also does extra surveillance while I'm away during the day. He knows who comes in and who gets picked up. There's nothing wrong with added security and safety for your pet(s). I am fully bonded and insured!

There is a fence around my property. It's a chain-linked fence. I never had one single dog go through it as I'm always with them or someone who is helping me (while I'm away seeing my clients) are with them. We do not go into the woods unless they're on leash. The fence is hard to see as most of it is hidden from all trees and scrubs. All dogs stay close to the house and never close to the fence.

Prices for other pet(s) in your household that are needed for pet sitting while you're away. The price below are the cost for boarding and daycare services.
Cats - $25.00 per pet
Rabbits/other rodents - $20.00 per pet

P.S. I send updates and photos via Dogvacay App and not via text message.

Please Note for Pet Owners:
If you pick your pet(s) up after 12pm, you will be charged the daycare rate for that day. *Only for picking up your pet*

Thank you,

Sonya was great with responding to messages quite quickly and did a great job with sending me update photo's of my boys!
When I went to pick them up they seemed to be completely exhausted, which I took as a good sign.
Will definitely use her services again.
Sonya was outstanding! Sonya stayed overnight at our house with Bueller! She went above and beyond to ensure Bueller was comfortable in our own home. Sonya sent pics to me during our vacation so that we knew he was healthy and happy. I highly recommend using Sonya for you pet sitting needs. We will definitely use her for now on when we travel. Thank you, Sonya! I never once worried about Bueller. Vacay is a great on-line company to find caring, reliable and loving animal sitters.
We usually have our Wheaton, Lucy, stay with good friends when we go on holidays, however, that is now longer possible. I was so happy to find Sonya, who treated our dog as if it was her own. Lucy is a little shy at first and Sonya seemed to know exactly how to get her to come around. The daily pictures of her running in the snow and making new friends (human and animal) made me feel very happy that she was having a holiday of her own. I would definitely book with Sonya again ( and in fact, I am doing that right after posting this review)
Sonya provided our German Short Hair Pointer, "Roxxi", a great Christmas holiday. We met Sonya at her place ahead of the week long dog vacay so we could see where Roxxi would be staying and how she got along with Sonya. While away, Sonya was great to send pics of Roxxi everyday. We would definitely recommend Sonya .
Sonya has been the best with Czer. She is extremely kind and accommodating with drop off pick up times. Czer is so comfortable and happy when he is there it's a great peace of mind for me. He has tons of exercise and a lot of TLC. I would recommend Sonya to anyone who would like a caring sitter, great place for your pet who is loved and cared for like their own.
Sonya responded quickly to our request. We only met Sonya when we picked up our dog, her mother was there to receive Molly. We were met at the door both times, but not invited in. Sonya sent two pictures during our two night vacation. Molly was not stressed when we picked her up. Both Sonya and her mother were friendly.
Sonya is amazing. From the first time my pups met her they were completely comfortable with her. the property is huge and there is watering holes and ponds for the dogs to drink and swim. The dogs roam free in her home she treats them like they are her own. Sonya I cannot express how greatful I am for dog sitters like you who care about your guests. My boys will be back again. Heck they barked at me when I pulled up they had made them selves so at home. Lol
Any anxiety I had leaving Chloe for a few days was quickly relieved once I met Sonja. Flexible with drop off and pick up times which was great for my work
Chloe is an energetic year ol lab who has lots of energy and Sonja and her family were great.
My pup came home a very happy girl.
Will definetly take her there again.
Everything was excellent. We could not be happier!
Sonya was very accommodating to our needs. She allowed for us to drop Hershey off earlier than the scheduled time. Her place was very nice and open and large space for the dog to be. It was a quick and easy drop and a quick and easy pick up. Payment was very reasonable.

Sonya made sure to send us photos of hershey and a comment on how he was doing every day that we were away on our mini vacation.

All in all we were very happy with the service Sonya provided.
Sonya was excellent. Her place and yard are spacious and Kasha seemed very happy with the wide open spaces. I received lots of photo's daily. I will definetly use her again!
Toby seemed fine after this first visit outside of this home. I would have liked more detailed responses (on texts) when I asked how Toby was doing.
I was disconcerted by the condition of the house. I was concerned that Toby would ingest the objects that were lying on the floor.
I did appreciate Sonya's flexibility in extending Toby's stay.
Sonya was the perfect sitter for our girl Jetta.
Sonya and her family were wonderful. She suggested meeting beforehand which made us very comfortable, and sent daily picture updates while we were away. Hershey was so excited to explore the property that he didn't even notice when we left (a first for our little guy).
I would highly recommend Sonya for your doggie daycare needs. She was very calm with my hyper pup and was able to deal with her unpredictability with other dogs very well. Ruby loved Sonya's big property and seemed very relaxed and happy when we came to pick her up.
We were very pleased with our experience with DogVacay. It was a last minute reservation requested for the next day & it was all done on line. We were very greatful to have someone come in to babysit in iur hime so that the dogs had little stress. When you live in a new city & have no family near by or know not many people it is of comfort to know I can have my fur babies taken care of even without much notice. Sonya was very courteous & kind.
There are no words that can express how thankful I am for finding Sonya. When the people that offered to take care of my 135lb furry baby backed out I thought I was not only going to have to cancel my trip but lose all the money. I was on the verge of giving up but then I found DogVacay. I came across Sonya, her reviews and credentials drew me to contact her and I am glad I did. She was truly God's sent. From the meet&greet to the time of pick u everything was simply great. She kept me updated and sent me videos of how much he was enjoying his stay.

Sonya thank you for taking such great care of Iago. You gave me the peace of mind I needed in order to enjoy my vacation. I will definitely come and see you again!

All the best,

Our golden retriever Chevy stayed with Sonya for two weeks and seemed to have a wonderful time. Frequent photos/videos of him playing with humans/animals alike. He slept for two days straight once he got home - I think he was tired from the playing/swimming :) The day after getting home he hovered by the van and jumped in as if to say "I want to go back to Sonya's...". Would book again!
Sonya is very very good, i would recommend her to anyone. There is big properity for dogs ro run around. Also i really liked how she sends updates throughout the day with dog picture. Awesome . Thank you Sonya, i will bring my dog to you again .
Wonderfully large area! Our dog gets anxious in kennels and She came home from Sonia's without problem, seemed very well taken care of.
Sonya is a very friendly and kind person. My Czer took to her right away and he made new friends to run and play with. Sonya's place offers the commodities you would like to have for yoru dog. Big house for the dogs to roam free and make themselves at home. The big property boasts plenty of ground green space and woods for the dogs to play, run and explore. Sonya kept me up to date and sent me pictures/videos. I had peace of mind being away and it warmed y heart to see Czer having such fun and being cared for by Sonya. He was tuckered out once he got home. I would recommend Sonya's care and place for anyone looking for a loving,caring home and plenty for yuor dog to do.
Thank you Sonya, I will be back.
Sonya was very accommodating as we needed to add a night stay before our trip and our flight back home was delayed almost 8 hours! She was very easygoing with these unexpected changes and we know that Kai loved her affection and large backyard to run and explore! This was our first time leaving our puppy Kai so we were VERY anxious as he is only 10 weeks! Sonya sent pictures daily and even a little videoclip! Thanks again for caring for our Kai!
Ginger had a great time while staying with Sonya. He seemed very happy and content. Sonya is a caring dog sitter who took a really good care of him and kept us updated by sending photos and answering our questions. We highly recommend Sonya and will definitely use her services in near future. Thanks Sonya!
Sonya was awesome ! From start to finish she was easy to communicate with and very friendly. Her property is excellent with tonnes of space for her four legged guests to roam and explore. Milo stayed with her for 10 days and she sent through daily photos of him. He looked so at home and comfortable with her as soon as we left him and was the same on our return. Would definitely use again. Big thanks to Sonya !!!!
I actually think my dog is depressed to be home! Inka had a wonderful time in Sonya's care. It is hard to believe that she has made friends with a cat while on vaycay. A huge delay flying home meant an extended stay but Sonya was very understanding at our late pick-up. She administered her meds., no problem. The biggest indicator is that this is the first time, that we were away, that our dog did not come home with her usual 'stress cough'. Highly recommend this lovely family and home.
Murphy had a wonderful time with Sonya! Her home is on a wonderful country property, so Murphy had plenty of excercise during his stay, he even made a friend while he was there! We will definitely call Sonya again.
Sonya was amazing! She kept us updated with photos of our dog and made our overall first experience with doggie sitting seamless!
Sonya was a great dog caretaker for our beagle mix, Chooch! We got lots of great photo updates, and he was happy and content when we fetched him home. We'll definitely have Chooch holiday with Sonya again!
Thanks Sonja, Monty seemed to enjoy his time with you, will bring him back again.
Sonya was a great dog sitter Kodi came home happy and tired She is a very kind person and her love of animals shows Kodi will return again for another doggy bacau Thanks so much Sonya
Sonya did a great job caring for our dog and bunny! We enjoyed receiving the photos. We would hire her again and recommend her to anyone looking for a caring pet sitter!
Sonya was a delight to work with. She would reply promptly to any questions and was extremely helpful. This was my pup's first time boarding away from family and Sonya made it a great experience. I loved the photo updates! They helped me feel confident in my pup's care and helped me feel at ease.

Thank you Sonya for the excellent care of our little girl!
We have 2 Keeshonds that are very active ,high energy dogs . They loved it there .Huge back yard to run around . So glad we found Sonya . So much better than placing them in a kennel locked up in a crate for a week . Will definately bring them back .
Brodie had a great vacation with Sonya. He is an older dog with some health problems and needs some extra support and TLC. She was very accommodating. We would love to send him back another time.
It was Murphy's first stay with Sonya.She was very friendly and had an amazing property for an active, large dog to play without restrictions.
Sonya was great! She was willing to do a last minute request and my dog was the only one there. He got plenty of undivided attention!
They did a great job.
Our 4 year old lab had a wonderful vacation with Sonya. Location and undivided attention cannot be beat. Sonya was professional and understanding of my needs given we had never had Zoey cared for by anyone other than us. Zoey slept for a day when she came home. I wouldn't hesitate to send Zoey and our new puppy to Sonya's in the future. If you are looking for personal attention and an environment that allows for one on one attention then please book with Sonya.
Sonya was absolutely amazing! I have an elder dog (14 years old) that needs medication administered and needs lots of care and attention. I was hesitat to leave him but he was very well taken care of. When we picked him up he was full of energy and extremely happy. I wouldn't trust anyone else but Sonya with my baby. Thank you Sonya for all your kind help!
Sonja is incredible! She is always available for us and it's obvious she loves our dogs :) they are happy to see her and often come home tired - her large property is like a doggie haven! Great person and excellent care! We love you Sonja!
Sonya was very quick to respond to our request and really flexible to our schedule. Her home is in the country on a big property so our Jenny was able to run and play frisbee. She was tuckered out when we picked her up, which is always a good sign of a great vacay!
