About Annie

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
An Active Host Since 2011. Minutes from the Airport and Downtown! As always a Bubble Bath included with every Vacay! Note: *Please check with me personally on availability as I am officially booked more times than not but have been doing what I love to do and managing a pack most life and will accommodate if at all possible!* Also note: *smoking permitted outside my home, 'though this does not indicate the quality of care provided.*
Hi, I'm Annie! I have been involved continuously in animal rescue/fostering/giving forever homes for, well gosh, most my life, not for pay, I am a seasonal Tax Examiner with the Internal Revenue Service but this is my passion and I love doing what I'm doing so much, that I might not go back! :) 24/7 supervision and love! A puppy? A high energy pup? A special needs pup? No problem! If your pup is game, walks daily to Mueller, Lady Bird Lake or Barton Springs and if your pup is really adventurous, my favorite watering hole is Pale Face, along with other puppy playmates to explore, on-leash of course..:) If you prefer a more laid-back Vacay, a huge back yard perfect for off-leash exploration fun in the sun, kiddie pool provided of course..:) and relaxation in the shade in a privacy fenced, safe and secure environment. Perhaps they prefer the company of humans and lots of snuggle time, I can certainly accommodate..:) and yes, they usually do end up in bed with us..;) matter of fact, it usually ends up a big ol' slumber party! :) Never kennel myself but if you prefer or if you feel is needed as security blanket for your pup, please feel free to bring along but have never found necessary..:)

Kind of an old hippy and tree hugger I suppose, lots of peace, love and understanding here..:) I do enjoy spending time with the pups outdoors, weather and your pup's preferences permitting, BBQ often and a fire pit out back, which we have the tendency to curl up around..:) and do on occasion burn incense or have a cigarette on my patio after a fun filled day so if sensitive to smoke, please make me aware and can certainly refrain from and accommodate and your pup will certainly come home freshly bathed after all the puppy play! :) Oh, and yes indeed, I do have Pitties but no bullies here! :) Please be current on preventative to ensure a wonderful Vacay for all and I can certainly assist here as well..:)
Outstanding references from South Congress Veterinary Clinic, Emancipet, and Animal Trustees of Austin.

Annie was fantastic! She was so great about keeping me updated on Murphy. She was quick to respond to messages (even on Xmas day) and was super flexible. She posted adorable pictures of my pup and even gave him a bath right before I picked him up. This was my first time using dog vacay and my first time leaving my pup and I was very impressed and would absolutely use the service and definitely Annie again.

My dog came home happy and healthy. Annie was super friendly and communicated clearly and frequently despite being super busy with the holidays.
My pup came home tired and happy as always! We love Annie!
As always thank you so much for taking care of Maui. She had a wonderful time by all the photos I got from you.
Worf loved staying with Annie, and we loved it, too - she was very flexible, and sent lots of picture of all the fun he was having.
Annie's house was a perfect place for our Sandy, a 10 year old Golden. Sandy's doesn't like leaving home (where she has free reign), but Annie's made her feel at home. This was her first visit with Annie. We're thinking that after a few more stays, she'll feel like this is just another one of her homes!

We had a great experience with Annie. She was very patient when responding to my numerous emails. She went the extra mile to help our anxious dog adjust to a new environment. She also sent emails about or dog and loads of pictures. Plus, we picked up a freshly bathed dog!

It is a dog world with Annie. I would take my little one to here any day.
Our pup has stayed with Annie 3 times now, and she has been treated wonderfully every time. Annie truly cares for the dogs that stay with her and treats them as part of her family. She is always responsive about sending pictures and letting us know how Kaleia is when we're away. Annie has also always been available during the agreed upon pick up and drop off times, even accommodating changes to our schedule on short notice. Kaleia is always bathed when we pick her up, and seems very happy. We'll definitely use Annie for any future sitting needs.

Annie is so amazing with my dog. He is always so happy and rested when he is returned to me. I think he may enjoy having other dogs around to humor him. My buddy also comes back smelling amazingly and I've actually bought the spray Annie uses as I loved it so much. She has catered to my random pick up and drop off times and has been nothing but kind and helpful during my frantic departures and arrivals. I'm so very happy with her services and will continue to use her.

Yet another great experience! Thank you so very much for dealing with my crazy and ever-changing schedule. Life would be a lot harder without your help.
Let me be the first to say how amazing Annie is. As i'm sure she is TOO nice to say, my pup is probably the most needy of pups she has to watch. I have a bulldog who is very allergy prone which causes all sorts of medical necessities. In the past, I have turned down business trips due to not being comfortable leaving my pup with anyone else's care. Since i have found Annie I have probably used her 4 times in the past 3 months alone. I am at ease knowing my little girl is with Annie and knowing she is getting amazing care. Between the picture update and the flexibility of drop off/pick ups ( I got sick on the pick up day and Annie watched my pup for an extra night for FREE just so I could get some rest). Annie goes above and beyond and her care for the dog's she watches is amazing. Highly Reccomend

Thanks for another great job taking care of Ishmael and Heidi! They always get excited when we get to your house for their stay.
Annie has taken care of Lexie on many occasions over the past year and a half since moving to Austin. I now live a bit farther from her and have a roommate that's able to help with pet care so I haven't really needed a petsitter. However, Annie reached out on several occasions just to see about setting up a playdate because she and her daughter missed Lexie - that's what I love about Annie. You really feel like your pet is with someone who cares about them as much as you do and isn't just doing this for the money. Fortunately, there were a couple of days when my roommate and I were both traveling so we were able to revisit Annie. Even though it had been a few months, Lexie totally remembered her and could hardly contain her excitement when we arrived at the house...she has a bit of separation anxiety, but is always fine when I leave her with Annie. She came home freshly bathed and in great shape as always.
I definitely recommend Annie as someone who will take good care of your dog, and be super flexible and supportive of your needs and schedule as well.

Contact made to dog vacay
I'm not the type of person to bad mouth other people, and I like to give them a benefit of doubt. However, when I picked up my dog from the host, I found fleas on him and a part of his fur cut off on the tail. I contacted her and she said she does not know anything about it and I found it very odd. The house was a smoking environment as well. Other than that, my dog looked ok.

We had a totally fine experience with Annie! She provided a few pictures while we were away and our pup got a bath before she came home- which we really appreciated. Thanks, Annie!!
Annie was great with our pups. She sent emails and pictures daily and always responded timely. They came home all bathed and pretty exhausted which to me is a good indicative of a fun time. Would definitely use her again.
Annie was wonderful! She was very communicative and clearly loves what she does. My little man had a great time and already can't wait to have another vacay with her!
Annie is extremely nice and took great care of my pup! My 1.5 year old lab loves to run around and play with other dogs so Annie's fenced in yard was great. Annie watched my dog for 4 nights while I was out of the country on vacation and she put me at ease by sending multiple picture updates. She was also very accommodating when my flight was delayed and she had to watch my dog longer than originally planned. I highly recommend Annie!!

Annie had lots of room for my pup to play, he had a great time.
Fantastic experience with Annie! She took great care of my dog and he came home super happy. I will defineatley use her services again.
Annie is fantastic! Super reliable, uber dog-lover, even gave my lil nug a bath before I picked him up. Absolutely would have my pup take a vacay here again, five thumbs up!
Annie hosted my 11yr old Husky for the first time I ever left her with someone other than family. Thankfully she is a full on dog-lover and very attentive to them, you know your pet is in good hands. Thanks Annie.
Annie was great - extremely flexible with drop-off and pick-up, even on short notice, and while our plans were changing. Sent lots of pics too!
Annie was great! She was super flexible with the drop off and pick up... and even gave my pup a bath! To top it all off she sent daily pictures so I could still see my dog when I was gone. I would definitely recommend Annie to any dog owner.
Thank you
Annie, thanks for taking awesome care of Maui once again, making sure she took her meds and bringing her back to me ... thank you
Annie was great and my dog, Otis, had a great time. She sent lots of pictures and updates and gave Otis a bath. I would definitely use Annie again!
Annie took care of Lexie for two weeks while I was traveling. It can be hard to leave a pet for so long but I knew she was in great hands with Annie. I got lots of communication and pictures. Annie even celebrated Lexie's birthday. Annie loves the dogs she cares for and treats them like her own.

Annie is simply the best. I had accidentally reserved the wrong weekend with her and she still accepted by buddy last minute. He also returned smelling even better than he normally does and I didn't think that was possible. I have been using Annie for years and will continue to do so.

My dog Zoe was happy, tired out, and freshly bathed when she came home. From the pictures Annie sent, it looked like she had fun with other dogs Annie had at her house. We would use Annie's services again, thank you Annie.
Annie is the the greatest! She is a very loving and warm person and goes the extra mile to make your dog feel loved and welcomed in her home. I was worried about going on vacation and leaving my 2 pups, but Annie set my mind at ease. She sent me pictures every 2 days of my pups, and sent me several texts on how they were doing. The pictures Annie sent were so cute and my pups looked so happy and relaxed. I plan on taking a few more trips this year, and the only person I will leave my pups with will be Annie. Annie we just love you and thank you for everything your number 1 in our book!

Annie was fabulous with Mowgli once again. She is super flexible with her pick up and drop offs. I was able to drop him off later at night so I got to spend a little more time with him:) then with all the inclement weather my flight was delayed 10 hours. Annie remained in contact with me and allowed me to still get him super late at night. I got tons of pictures and he came home fresh and clean along with a clean dog bed. Definitely the best!!
Read More...
Annie was amazing yet again! She provides so much love to my pup and he loves playing in her yard and with the other dogs. We will definitely be back!
Annie was great! Took Luna in on short notice and let her stay the night so we could enjoy a night out. Gave us regular updates so we could make sure our pup was doing great, and was very communicative throughout the process. Would definitely not hesitate to use her services again!

Our yorkie, Kaleia, had a great time with Annie! She was very caring and super responsive to any requests for updates and pictures. Annie made us feel completely comfortable leaving our pup, who seemed to have a blast. We'll definitely use Annie again for future trips.

Great sitter. Took our last minute reservation and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times and gave dog a bath before pick-up. We'll definitely use her again. Location was also pretty convenient to the airport.
Annie was great
It is clear that Annie loves dogs! She showed Foxy a lot of love, and also was very consistent sending photos.
Annie was a great sitter, I was worried because Maggie is a handful, but she had no problems and sent me photo updates through out her stay!
As always this was a great experience for Maui. Thanks Ann
Annie was awesome with Mowgli! I got very detailed updates and great pictures. She treated him as her own pup and it made me feel much better leaving him with her. He even came home bathed which made me so happy because it was one less thing I had to do after traveling. I have used Annie before and will definitely again!

Annie and her daughter have been wonderful to my timid little Chuweenie Dani (who was a rescue) - she has also been helpful to socialize her with both other dogs and humans. See sends me pictures on how she is doing and Dani always smells so nice and is so soft when I get her back. She is my official babysitter. Always know that my dog is safe and in good hands when I am out of town.

Annie is great. She is flexible and always takes good care of my dog. She sends pictures regularly, and responds to requests/communication in a timely manner. I feel good with Annie taking care of my dog when I am a away.
She was great! She made sure the other dogs got along with my pup first and made her feel at home when we were away. I could tell she was taken care of which makes me feel great. I loved the pics of her walking around in a sweater. Too cute! Annie went the extra mile and provided my baby with some topical spray because she was a little itchy and it worked! Thanks Annie! :)
Read More...
My dog loves Annie! She was very kind and sent photo updates with my dog grinning from ear to ear. She has a nice backyard and offers a house full of love. We will definitely be regulars!
We've been using Annie for about 2 years now and she's awesome! Our dog recently spent 2 weeks with her, the longest he's been away from us, and we didn't have to worry about him at all. She and her daughter treat him like their own, and not just like a client. Big yard and other doggy friends are a bonus too!

This past trip was cut short due to personal reasons and Annie was super accommodating about the change.
She has become someone I rely on, especially for last-minute trips or returns and I always know Hailey will have an amazing time while I'm away.

Plus she sends pictures frequently so I can always see how the visit is going.

She also is great about following up after the visit--which I find is above and beyond what other sitters do. She is very responsive and easy to get a hold of. :)

Annie is the absolute best host Hailey has had (and we jumped around for awhile). She is attentive and caring and extremely flexible. She is the only sitter I ever consider leaving Hailey with for long periods of time, which I do over Christmas break and other holidays.

Hailey has always had a skin condition and Annie accommodates to her every need and also advises me on how to continue the care at home. You can tell she really cares about the animals she sits for. Also she works with my personal schedule so whether I have to drop off/pick up my pet early in the morning or late at night, she is always willing to help me figure it out. She understands that emergencies come up and is super accommodating.

Hailey is always sad to leave Annie, and so excited when we get to her door. Best of all, she bathes Hailey after the visit so she is fresh and clean to bring home!
Read More...
Another great stay with Annie! I had a long work day out of town. Annie was great and flexible as always with my 6 am drop-off and a late evening pick-up. Lexie had fun as always and came home pooped from her fun day. I love that when we arrive, Lexie goes sprinting in and is so excited to be there. It feels good knowing that she's in good hands.

The level of stars for this review continue to decline as the days go on and I keep finding fleas on my dog. My dog has been on a topical flea preventative since the day I got her 2 years ago and has never had an issue until this stay. My dog is black and white so seeing black bugs crawl through her white coat is very hard to miss, in fact, I noticed 5 minutes into the car ride after I picked her up WHILE I was driving. That's how obvious they were. When I asked Annie about this she stated that she did she her itching quite a bit but she was hoping the bath on the last day would help and that she could have used a topical on her to get rid of the fleas but she does not like to do that without the owners permission. Here's a wild idea, how about you ask or inform me of the issue in the daily updates I got. By the time I got Bailey home and was able to examine her it was obvious how bitten up she was. The other issue that I had, which is just as serious but slightly less annoying than fleas, Annie contacted me on the day before I was to pick Bailey up saying that she had a slight cut on her foot that she keeps licking. A "slight cut" is an understatement. There is a deep cut through the entirety of the padding of her paw that could only have been caused by something sharp such as broken glass. I am so disappointed to have to write such a bad review because I really was hopeful I had found someone to watch Bailey since I leave town frequently to visit home.

Annie was amazing with our 3 month old puppy, she went above and beyond to make sure our pup was having a good time. She was also flexible with the pick up and drop off. We will definitely book with her again for our next trip.
Thank you!
Thanks Annie for taking such a good care of Maui for the past 5 weeks while I was away abroad during the holidays. Thanks for the photos and updates on her status :)
Annie as always was awesome taking care of Maui while I was away for work for a couple weeks.
Annie was great! She was flexible with drop off and pick up times. She knew it was Hank's first vacay and made sure I knew he was okay. She sent photos throughout his stay and he seemed to pick up some good habits from the other dogs. I was grateful he was able to have social time and be taken care of by someone who obviously loves dogs. Thanks Annie!

Annie was great! She was quick to respond, kept me updated, and was really flexible with my changing pickup/drop off times. She accommodated me last minute during the busy holiday season and took great care of my dog. I will definitely be using her again! My pup loved her!

Annie watched our dog over the holidays and we were so grateful! She sent tons of photo updates and was flexible with pickup/drop off times. Bonus - our dog was exhausted when he got home from so much play.
Annie was great! Although I never met her since my roommate did the drop-off and pick-up during the time we were both away, Annie was easy to communicate with and sent updates and pictures of Toffee having a great time.
Annie was very accommodating regarding our schedule and was super sweet to Harley! He was happy and healthy when picked up! Annie is obviously a dog lover!
Annie is the best! Not only is she professional and courteous during the reservation process, she is also very laid back and awesome with dogs. Our 3 year old lab had a blast - I know because she sent us photos of his vacay every day. Such a great experience for our four-legged guy. I would not hesitate to employ her services again. Thanks, Annie!

We have been going to Annie for the past 2 1/2 years. We recently adopted a new puppy that has some medical needs and puppy energy. I couldn't be happier with her willingness to attend to all his needs as well as accommodate the two of them. Annie = miracle worker.
Read More...
Annie took care of Lexie while I was out of the country over Thanksgiving. As always, I got lots of pictures (including one of Lexie in a thanksgiving costume!) and could see that she was having lots of fun with the other pups. As a single dog, I love that she gets to play while at Annie's. Annie also kept her late into the evening which gave me time to catch up on sleep and run a few errands. And of course Lexie came home freshly bathed which is always nice. Thanks so much Annie!
Read More...
I am continued to be amazed at the quality and care Annie provides. The pictures she sends are fantastic and really calms my anxiety about leaving my best buddy. She really goes above and beyond.
Annie is great and took wonderful care of my energetic Aussie, Cash, over Thanksgiving. She has a big backyard that all of the dogs can play in all day long, and it seems like they have the run of the house, as well. I got lots of picture and text updates throughout the 5 days I was gone, which was really nice. Cash was freshly bathed when I picked him up and still smells great!

My only caveat, which Annie herself pointed out to me, is that her house was pretty busy over the holiday with 9 dogs when I dropped him off. Cash is used to playing with lots of dogs in the park for an hour or two at a time, but he apparently got a little overwhelmed and anxious at times being surrounded by such a big pack 24/7. So just know that Annie is great and will take good care of your dog, but that there will likely be lots of other dogs around.

The stay at Annie's went great as always! I've had to extend my work trip, but I'm confident the next week with her will go just as well as the first.
Sometimes I feel like Annie takes better care of my dog than I do and I start feeling guilty. She gives so much love, attention, and a great bath. She even sends the most adorable pictures that make me feel so much better when I am away.
We were really nervous about leaving our beloved babies behind for a week because we've had bad experiences in the past and one of our dogs is a senior dog, she's deaf and starting to go blind, with separation anxiety issues. And the other dog is a rescue with extreme people fear issues. Plus a cat.

Annie was wonderfully reassuring from the beginning. She called us an hour after we'd dropped off the "kids" to let us know how they were settling in, and sent us photos of them which helped us enjoy our time away knowing someone was there almost 24x7 with them. Which was the main reason we opted not to go with the having someone just come to our house to check in on them every now and then that other sitters provide.

She was able to get our shy dog to come out of her shell a bit and wasn't overwhelmed by our senior dog's issues, and handled our spazzy kitten's lunacy like a pro.

We will definitely leave our babies with Annie the next time we go out of town. Very happy with her. She clearly loves animals as much as we do.

Annie is great! Had to go out of town last minute, and were so glad to know we had Annie to rely on! Caesar has stayed with her several times. Thanks Annie!!
Bo always loves going to Annies. He is very well taken care of. He loves them.
My pup Elphie couldn't have loved her stay with Annie more. Annie was very accommodating with my schedule of getting Elphie over for her stay. I received some adorable photo updates throughout. Elphie had the very best time and she's all set for a second visit!

We had a great stay with Annie! Due to the recent weather issues in Austin, both my departure and return were delayed. Annie was super flexible about adjusting times for drop-off and pick-up. She sent pictures as always (including one that had all the dogs cuddled together on the bed...they are clearly allowed to make themselves at home while at Annie's!), and when we came home, I even found a couple of giant milk bones inside the bag of treats that I had sent with Lexie which was an unexpected surprise for us! Annie is always super generous and Lexie always enjoys her vacations at Annie's house!

Annie did a great job! Lola was safe, happy, fed, and loved. We received pics every other day. Thank you very much.
She was awesome!! Took great care of my baby!!! Thank you Annie! You were terrific!
Another great stay with Annie!
Annie was great! She worked with us on times for drop off and pick up and was very flexible. She is very enthusiastic about what she does and seems to know exactly what she is doing. Will definitely go back!
Annie was great about communication, sending pictures, and letting me know how my little one was doing especially with me being gone for a week.
Completely Pawsome! Annie took care of our Chloe and Blossom while my wife and I were getting married. We loved how she adapted to their personalities too! Blossom enjoyed her company being her shadow and Chloe just loves to play ball outside. Thank you Annie so much for taking care of our furballs and giving us the peace of mind we needed on our special day!

I had to schedule a last minute trip out of town and requested a stay with Annie a on the day of the trip. She was able to accommodate me on short notice, caught that I booked the wrong dates and called Dog Vacay to correct it, and tried to refund me a day because I dropped off my dog pretty late in the evening. In short, she is extremely flexible, and clearly sees this as more than a job...she loves the dogs that stay with her and is genuinely concerned about their well-being. She also sends adorable pictures. She's always my first stop when I need a petsitter! I highly recommend her.
Read More...
Our pup had another great stay with Annie. Not sure how much more I can say that i haven't already in my previous reviews.
Annie is really great with dogs, and I really appreciate that she is always willing to accommodate last minute bookings! Or when my flight back to Austin changed and I had to stay an extra day, it was super easy to book an extra day and stop worrying :) Thank you for everything!

Annie was wonderful!!! She took good care of Florence. She even smelled wonderful when I picked her up!! I'm defiantly going to use Annie again :-)
We had a wedding in Austin so brought our babies to stay close by with Annie. We were able to enjoy our time knowing they were being taken care of. She kept us updated about how things were great on her end soon after we dropped them off to bedtime. Zoey is an adorable wiggle butt and I'm so glad they all got along. Our babies were completely pooped out on the drive home so I know they had tons of fun! Greyson, Thor and Wilson say thank you for the treats, Annie!

Yet again, I am so impressed with Annie's services. I swear my dog comes back happier every single time. He also comes back smelling better than when I leave him.
Annie was so wonderful with our dog, Mila. We just had moved to Austin and had to travel just a few days after getting into the city. I was so worried about leaving Mila after putting her through so many changes but Annie really help put my mind at ease. She was very accommodating with our drop off/pick up and even sent a ton of pictures! Mila had such a great time that we already booked another stay with Annie for the next time we go out of town. Thanks Annie!

Once again Annie is a champion. She always sends pictures of how spoiled our dog is during his stay. It brings a lot of smiles to our faces when we are away. She is so flexible that it is amazing. Can't say enough wonderful things about her.
I've used Annie for the last year and a half and she never ceases to amaze me. she even went the extra mile of checking on my other animals at my home and noticing an unlocked door. I will never use any other pet sitter as Annie clearly goes above and beyond.

We love leaving our dog Margaret with Annie when we go out of town. Margaret really enjoys staying there, and Annie takes great care of her and even gives her a bath! Also, Annie is just so flexible with our schedules. If something (flight or otherwise) changes last minute, Annie works with us to coordinate changes in pick up and drop off times. She makes our lives less stressful!
Read More...
Annie was great! She made my girlfriend and I feel extremely comfortable, and safe. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking dog sitter!! A++
Annie once again was awesome. Puck has the best time when we go away because he gets to go to Annie's house. She always sends pictures and he is bathed and looking dapper every time we pick him up.
This was our first time with Annie and we are so happy we found her! She was very easy to schedule with and very good at communicating with me via emails. She also sent cute pics of our Indy while we were on vacation so that we could see how he was doing. Annie made us feel very at ease leaving our little guy with her and we are sure to schedule with her for our next vacation.

Thanks so much Annie for another great time Maui had there :)
We had a great experience as usual. Annie is so caring and flexible, which allows me to focus on other things while I'm away from home.
My Lacy loves her dog vacations when I am away for work. Lacy stays for long periods of time usually (approx. a week), and I love seeing photos of her getaways.
Only place I leave my pup now, I'm even bringing him back this weekend! Annie is really flexible with drop offs and pick ups, so I'm able to leave him with her when I go out of town, or just know I'll be busy during the weekend. She even gives him a bath every time! Couldn't recommend Annie more, she and her daughter are wonderful!

Annie was amazing. Both of our girls had a great time playing with Annie's dogs and Annie sent us lots of photos and text updates. Our girls didnt want to leave! It was nice knowing that they were safe with Annie because both of our dogs have high anxiety and neither one of them were stressed when we picked them up. We will certianly call on Annie next time we need a dog sitter in Austin!

As always Annie was the best :) Maui is always at home with Annie and always so happy and excited to be there. Thanks Annie
Annie was an AWESOME host! I can't wait to take Buck back for another vacay!
Annie is the most accommodating host there is, she literally saved me when my flight was cancelled causing my dog to need to stay boarded an extra night. She is my go-to in Austin and makes my living here (and having family out of state) possible. I don't know if I'll ever let anyone else pet sit my dog...ever.

Lexie had another great stay with Annie. As always, I received pictures and Annie was super flexible around pick up and drop off times. Annie really loves the dogs that stay with her and goes out of her way to make sure they are comfortable. We'll be back!

Always amazing! Annie is incredibly accommodating, and Bernie always comes home soooo tired that I get additional relaxation time. Easy 5 stars!
I would trust no one else with my dog. My dog is an old, anxious man with some arthritis. Annie made sure my dog was always in a quiet and comfortable spot and she constantly updated me with pictures and words regarding my best buddy and how he was feeling. This is my fourth time using her and my dog always comes home happy and smelling amazing.

Annie has been very accommodating on such short notice. Not only is she very responsive but she takes great care of the pups. So happy I found Annie, and I am sure you'll feel the same.
I have a 7 year old male chihuahua, who is leary of strangers to say the least. Annie, made him feel very comfortable, and sent pictures daily of him which definitely eased my concerns. She was awesome, and highly recommend her.
Annie hosted Tucows for a month-long stay. She was willing to work with me to give me a good price and even split the cost across two spans (hence the two reviews) to accommodate my needs.
Annie did a great job on a month-long stay with my pup Tucows while I was out of town on vacation. She sent me pictures regularly and I'm sure Tucows misses her new friends immensely already!
Annie is awesome and majorly accommodating. She loves our dogs and they always come home happy.
I am a repeat customer with Annie and every single stay has been great! She takes great care of Hailey and is super flexible about drop-off and pick-up. AND She gives your pooch a bath! That's great!

Definitely will continue using her for as long as I am in Austin

Never any worries when Bo is with Annie. He loves her and her daughter. He is very well taken care of.
Annie's simply the best in Austin!
Bo always has a great time! I never worry when he is with Annie and Josephine.
Annie is the best! Such a nice soul...your dog will be in good hands.
Annie was wonderful as always! She gave Lexie a bath before sending her home, and was super flexible about the pick-up time. I always know that Lexie is in great hands with Annie (and her daughter, and Zoe!) We'll definitely be back!
Annie, thank you so much for the awesome time you took to take of Maui so well. I'm glad she had a great time with you as always. Thanks for keeping eye on her shoulder and making sure she was not being too hyper :) until next time !
As usual Annie was AWESOME!!! My dog loved his stay with her. I always feel comfortable leaving my dog with Annie, because I know that he will be well taken care of!!
Once again Puck had a fabulous time. Annie sent us pictures even though it was only a two day stay. He got to play and had so much attention I'm not sure he wanted to come home. It rained while we were away so she even gave him a bath on pickup morning. Annie puts everything into her work and it shows.

Annie is absolutely amazing. This is my 4th or 5th time boarding my pup, and I can't emphasize how fantastic she is. She is an accommodating miracle worker!
My pup has definitely enjoyed the stay. She mades lots of friends and got plenty of playtime. I loved seeing my baby's picture while I was on vacation. Annie sent us loads of them. I will definitely recommend her to others.
Annie was very accommodating to our pup that got nervous during some fireworks. We will continue to leave our dogs with her as they are always well taken care of at her house.
Another great stay with Annie! As always, the dogs came home happy and healthy. Annie is always very flexible about drop off and pick up times.
Lexie had another great stay with Annie! I can tell she had fun and played a ton because she's been sleeping since we got home! We'll be back!
I was initially nervous about having our boys stay with Annie and her daughter since both are extremely spoiled and neither of them have ever spent any considerable time away from us (and one can be rather temperamental); but once I met her I knew it would all be ok! She was so reassuring and calm, and the boys immediately began exploring her yard and barely realized I was leaving.

After a bit of acclimating time, it was like "Doggie Camp" for them; and based on the pictures I received throughout their stay (they were there for several days) they had a ball!

Annie is very patient and accommodating, both with high maintenance owners and high maintenance "kids"; and she goes above and beyond in making sure they're comfortable during their stay!

I'm so happy to know we've got somewhere I can trust for future visits (provided she's got room)...she books up fast, especially around the holidays, for good reason!
Read More...
We had a great stay with Annie! Her house has a fantastic fenced in yard for the dogs to play and Lexie was welcomed as one of the family. Annie also sent lots of pictures of Lexie's stay. Thank you, we'll be back!
Annie is amazing and we felt so comfortable leaving Puck with her. We just got him and he was with us for a week. She pampered our puppy and made him feel so comfortable. We received updates and pictures from her throughout our vacation. We didn't have to think about how our pup was being cared for because we knew it was top notch. Thank you Annie. You are wonderful.
Read More...
Love it when Annie takes care of our Bo. He loves all the attention he gets. He comes home happy!
Annie was great!!! My dog, Bijoux realy enjoyed his stay. I felt really comfortable leaving him with her. All of my worries about whether or not he would be well taken care of vanished the moment I met Annie. I will be leaving him with her every time I need to leave town for a few days.
Read More...
Annie is AMAZING! She's very responsive and sends photos letting me know that Hailey was having a great stay. Her place is great, with a huge yard and other friendly dogs to play with. She's a great host and I'm pretty sure Hailey was kinda sad to come home since she had to leave all her new friends! That just speaks to how great of a sitter she is.
Read More...
Another great stay with Annie! Titan absolutely loves staying there. Annie was so great. We had a very long flight delay on the day we were to pick him up. Annie reassured us it would be no problem, and she let us pick him up very late. We got great photo updates that put us at ease. Thank you for being so flexible and understanding Annie! Highly recommend her, and will definitely be using her again.... And again... And again :)

Annie was wonderful! She was friendly and extremely accommodating. I ended up needing her to care for my dog even longer, and she was so helpful and understanding of my situation. USE HER. She's great and she washed Buster before I picked him up.
My Manchester Terrier mix is quite high strung and nervous. She travels with her therapy dog (my lab mix). Together they were quite happy with Annie and her pups. Annie was very accommodating of all suggestions I had for helping the terrier be comfortable. She allowed her time with the pack and alone (it was a long stay). The terrier chose pack time and I could tell from the pics she was very relaxed and at home in no time at all. When I went to pick them up, my two dogs were very bonded with Annie's pups and in very good spirits and health. Annie took great care of them kept me updated with pics and messages - very comforting to me while I was gone for 12 days! We will definitely be returning!
Read More...
Annie was great! Very easy to work with and communicate with, and sent tons of updates and photos. She clearly loves dogs, and our pups seemed like they had a blast and were given tons of attention while they were there. We highly recommend Annie as a Dogvacay host!
Read More...
Annie was super sweet and very accommodating. She was easy to work with and gave me frequent updates on the pups while I was away. Thanks Annie!
Our little pup had a great time on her return trip to Annie. This trip was longer than we've ever left her (8 days) and everything went great! Got pics from Annie every day while we were gone and she was completely worn out from all the fun she had when we picked her up. Another successful trip with Annie and will be back again soon. Thanks!
Read More...
Annie was wonderful and she sent super cute pictures of my pups! Karmin and Marshall had a blast at her place. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my babies in her care.
Annie took such good care of our girl. After a week away, we came home to a clean and happy dog. Throughout the week we got pictures of our girl sleeping with Annie and playing and having fun with the other pups that were at Annie's. Thank you so much Annie for making our dog feel at home in your home and for taking such good care of her.

Zeus had a great time w/ Annie and her pups. He has been there twice now and comes home happy and tired from playing so much. Your dog will have a blast with her.
Another great stay with Annie!
This is my third time having my dog stay at Annie's. She never ceases to amaze me with her care. This time she returned my dog with additional food and a delicious bone. He always comes back smelling great and she even brushed him. My only complaint is that my dog seemed almost too happy. At least happier than I have seen him in awhile which makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong. I would highly recommend Annie to everyone.
Read More...
Awesome stay withAnnie. She's great at communication, sending pics and was accommodating to my big dog. He had a great 2 weeks with her.
Annie always takes good care of Toussaint. He gets quality play time with other dogs and she sends lots of pictures. He loves it there!
Annie was awesome! I was leaving down pretty early on Thursday morning, so Annie offered to have Atticus come over on Wednesday night at no charge so that I wouldn't have to rush to the airport. I dropped him off and she introduced him first to her own dog. They ran around the yard some and she assured me that she'd introduce him to other dogs slowly so that he'd have time to warm up. Annie has a great big yard with a kiddy pool and sprinklers for the pups to play in.

Atticus has been a little sick, so his dietary needs were pretty specific. Annie gave him every dose of his medicine and Atticus was happy and healthy when I picked him up. She even gave him a bath, which is nothing short of a miracle since my guy is afraid of water!

This was the first time I had ever left Bernie in the care of someone else, and it was for 10 long days, I WAS TERRIFIED. Annie from the very beginning was exceptional and willing to do anything and everything she could to make me feel comfortable (which she did!) I received a ton of pictures during his stay, and received Bernie back freshly bathed and smelling the best he has ever smelled in his life. His fur was also baby-butt soft and to top everything off, Bernie slept from the minute we got back until the next morning! Annie also accommodated my drop off and pick up times - which were pretty up in the air until the last minute. I will absolutely use Annie again, and recommend her to everyone I know!
Read More...
Annie was great! This was our first time to use someone other than family/friends so naturally we were a bit nervous. Annie calmed any nervousness right away. Our pup had a fantastic time. We got multiple updates & pictures from Annie over the weekend. Annie was flexible with timing & it was great to know that our pup was cared for & looked after 24/7. We have already booked our next dog vacay with Annie.
Read More...
Another great stay with Annie. Thank you for taking care of my pug!
Annie and her daughter took great care of my dog. She was very loved. Thank you so much!
Annie was an even better host than we could've imagined. She took care of our dog like one of her own, and he didn't want to leave! We are definitely using her again next time we go out of town. I would recommend Annie to any dog owner, especially those anxious about leaving their pet for the first time.
Read More...
We are new to Austin and are so glad that we found Annie for our dogs! She responds very quickly to all questions and is very flexible and willing to work with you. She made it so easy for us! Dropped Zeus off for the weekend and I got a phone call shortly after letting me know how he settled in and that all was well. Later that night I received a bunch of pictures of him and the other dogs playing, that really helps put your mind at ease. She kept us posted throughout the time that we were away and sent a lot of pictures. I cannot say enough good things about Annie, I would highly recommend her! When we picked up Zeus, he was clean, smelled good and was happy and worn out, I would say that he had a lot of fun and we will be using her again next time we need a dog sitter!
Read More...
Maui had a great time with Annie and her family. There were tons of photo updates that Annie txted me to see how Maui was doing :) thank you so much for providing Maui with a temp home for the time I was away Annie. Definitely be back.
Bonnie had another successful vacay with Annie! I was only gone overnight but got a ton of pics (which I always appreciate!) and my pup was worn out from playing with the other dogs in the huge backyard and in a good mood when I picked her up. Annie genuinely loves dogs and is my go-to sitter for my Aussie everytime I go out of town. Thanks again!
Read More...
Annie is the best! Our pooch always has a great time.
As always the dogs had a great weekend at Annie's. We ran a few hours late picking the dogs up and when I tried to offer Annie some extra cash due to the inconvenience she refused. How nice is that! It's so nice to have a safe, convenient option for dog sitting. Thanks, Annie!
Read More...
Our dog stayed with Annie for a week. She is an Aussie mix and very attached to us. However, Annie made her feel completely comfortable. She had such a good time and so much fun with the other dogs... I think she wanted to stay with Annie instead of coming home.
Read More...
Great experience!! Dogs were happy and tired :)
We always leave Bori with Annie whenever we are out of town. This time, we're away for four long months. It is difficult to entrust someone to look after your furry family member for such an extended period of time, but we couldn't be any more at ease leaving Bori under Annie's care. She cares for him like her own; she even surprised him with a birthday party for his first birthday! He has a big yard for him to run around freely and friends to keep him happy. She also sends pictures of him everyday, and gets back to us with any questions/concerns within a few hours despite the time difference (we're in a different continent). Altough we miss him terribly, we feel secure knowing that we couldn't have left him with anyone better!

I dropped both my dog and a friend's dog to stay with Annie over the Memorial Day weekend. When I first dropped them off they were nervous wrecks and I was dubious that they would gel but Annie reassured me and called me twice that night to let me know they were both doing fine.

After a glitch in communication the following day/evening Annie was communicative and reassuring and I was able to enjoy one of my rare opportunities to get out of town. When I picked the dogs up on Monday they were happy and tired.

What it took me about a week to notice was that my very vocal (i.e. whiny) dog was suddenly able to tolerate NOT being the center of attention and was suddenly a lot more quiet around the house. This was a wonderful bonus.

Annie is not running a princess, chi-chi, fussy butt dog daycare, but I genuinely believe she gives love and attention to all the mutts in her care and anyone that can manage to get my dog to stop "talking" ALL THE TIME is a genius. Thanks, Annie!
Read More...
Princess absolutely enjoyed her time with Annie! This was our first time leaving Princess with someone besides family so we were a little uneasy at first but Annie provided us an update within 30 minutes of us dropping her off and we were immediately put at ease. We will definitely be using her in the future.

I recently went out of town for a week, the longest I've ever left my dog, Stormy. This was also her first time staying with Annie, so naturally I was a little nervous! Annie made me feel completely at ease when I dropped Stormy off, she brought out another dog to play with Stormy in her huge back yard, and within 5 minutes I could tell Stormy was going to have a blast! Throughout my vacation, she sent me plenty of pictures of Stormy to update me, and called me because Stormy wasn't eating so she wanted to see if there was anything special she could buy for her to eat. I really appreciated this as it showed she really cared for Stormy! Stormy came home in great shape, I could tell she had a ton of fun at Annie's because she slept for almost three days straight! Stormy will definitely be having many vacays here in the future!
Read More...
We loved Annie! We were nervous leaving our pup Geeburt but Annie made us feel very comfortable right from the start. She was awesome about updating and sent adorable pictures of her and all the dogs having a blast. You can tell this is her passion and Geeburt came home tired, happy, and relaxed! We will definitely be back... Thanks!
Read More...
Another great stay with Annie! We love knowing that in an emergency or last minute situation we have somewhere safe for Titan to go. When he is with her and her daughter our minds are at ease. We know she takes great care of our special guy. Thank you so much Annie!!!

We were very nervous leaving our fur child for the first time. We chose Annie because of her great reviews. Our dog has separation anxiety and is unable to be crated or left without supervision. Annie was very understanding and her schedule worked great with our needs. She updated us with pictures putting our worries to rest. She was extremely fast to respond on such late notice. Our boy came back very tired from all the fun. We will definitely use services again and would highly recommend her to our friends and family. Thank you Annie!!!
Read More...
Annie cared for my two dogs for a full day while we had our house cleaned. Quick response to schedule the doggie daycare and as always the dogs come home looking happy and exhausted from playing. We will certainly use Annie's services again in the future.

Annie was nice, but seemed a bit in over her head with the amount of dogs she was caring for when mine stayed with her. My pup also came home smelling strongly of cigarettes and we had to throw his bedding away that was left with him because of the smoke smell. Besides that, things went fine with my dog's stay.
Read More...
Annie was amazing! Although I had planned to drop off at her house, Annie offered to come to me because I was running behind on plans for my vacation. She even dropped of my pup at the end of the trip because I was sick. Annie sent amazing pictures each day and kept me completely informed about my dog. He was returned bathed with some doggy treats which was an added bonus. I am so impressed.
Read More...
Our pups had a great extended stay at Annie's over winter break! They come home happy, healthy, and tired.
Annie was fabulous!! It was Bella's first time staying there, and Bella can tend to be a little shy at first. She settled right in and played with the other dogs and got along with Annie immediately. Annie is awesome about updates for the pups! Bella loved her stay and I will definitely be bringing her back!
Read More...
Our dog had a great time during 3 and a 1/2 days long stay and we've received plenty of photos while away for a weekend, which was very important because t was our first experience leaving her.
Gaspar had a great time. I can tell because he is sleeping soundly right now and it is only 5:30pm! Annie loves dogs and she took time to sent me great photos of Gaspar playing with his new friends! Thank you Annie!
Annie and her daughter took great care of my pug. Annie sent lots of photos of him, and he was obviously very loved. Thank you so much!
I am so grateful Annie is able to help me out last minute. I know my Bo is in good hands and wouldn't trust him with anyone else.
Bo is always so happy with Annie. He makes himself right at home like he is a part of their family!!
Annie is a sweetheart and devoted 100% of her time to my babies. I took both my chihuahuas to Annie for a 6 night visit while we traveled and they had a wonderful time. She called me with pleasant updates a couple of times and emailed me some really cute pictures of the 2 of them enjoying themselves and playing with the other visiting and resident dogs. Her daughter also made sure she left room in her comfy bed for my boys to share with her. If my boys could talk I'm sure they'd say "thanks Annie"!.
Read More...
Annie is now our go-to sitter for Bori whenever we are out of town. She is always accommodating even for last-minute reservations. Annie is so fond of and kind to all animals (even the ones that aren't under her care), which is what I love the most about her!
Read More...
Annie was very friendly upon booking. Taking care of dogs is her passion and she has a quick response time. The host sent daily photographs and updates on her stay. Our pup looked like she had a fun time.

It is not disclosed on her profile that it is a smoking household. We found out when we picked up our pup for a visit mid-week. Our pup smelled strong like cigarettes in the car on the way home, as did her plastic food container. I reviewed the stay so that other smoke-sensitive folks know up front.

Prince had a good time with Annie!
My dog had a great time and was well taken care of...another wonderful experience!
AMAZING, Let me tell you she took care of Diesel like he was her own. She sent pictures and called everyday for an update. He seemed to like it he wanted to go back as he wouldn't get out of the car when we got home. He some how got a wound at my house and I didn't notice it but Annie did. She also took care of it and cleaned it out. I am very happy to say Diesel will be staying with Annie again. She is AWESOME...
Read More...
Annie is the best! Our pooch is a rescue and doesn't do well in crates/cages. It's such a relief to know she can snuggle up with Annie's daughter at night. She always comes back happy and exhausted. She sends pictures every day. Can't say enough good things about Annie!
Read More...
Once again I wasn't worried at all about my Bo. We only trust Annie to take good care of him while we are away. I am afraid he won't want to come home one day ha ha. He is very well taken care of while we are gone. Her daughter is amazing as well. I know they love Bo as much as we do.
Read More...
We left Bori with Annie while we were away for a month during the winter. It wasn't easy for us as he was still a puppy, was timid toward other dogs, and had never been away from us before. But Annie couldn't have been more reassuring and reliable. She sent us photos of Bori every other day for the whole month that we were away and kept us updated on how he was doing. It was very heart touching to see how fond she had grown of Bori, and how playful and active he had become while he was with Annie. I loved that she had a yard where he can run around on his own. All in all, it was a great time for Bori and my family. Couldn't have been better!
Read More...
Annie was great! She answered my request really fast and was really flexible with pick up and drop off time, which is great because I'm always late. Most importantly my dog loved her and came home clean and exhausted. I would definitely recommend her.

Chance was exhausted after having so much fun with Annie! He definitely enjoyed his time, thank you!
Always love leaving Bo with Annie, no worries because he is well taken care of!! They are always willing to help me out. Bo loves them.
Annie was very responsible, responsive and flexible with pick up times! She also provided lots of pictures from the visit! Will definitely use her for pet sitting in the future!
We had lots of holiday guests so Buster and Aggie stayed at Annie's house for 3 weeks. My dogs hate fireworks and thunder and Annie was very accomodating in making sure thunder shirt was on and dogs weren't too scared on new years. It makes me feel better about leaving them when I know they are being well taken care of!
Read More...
Our pups had another great stay with Annie. They came home happy and tired. I really appreciated all the pictures she sent throughout the vacay and how easy she was to coordinate drop off and pick up times.
Annie was incredibly accommodating for our puppy. I was worried about leaving such a young dog for the amount of time we did, but she did a great job and he's home happy. Thank you, Annie!
Our second stay with Annie and the doggies came back happy, healthy and very tired! They always have a great time with her!
Once again, Annie took excellent care of our dog! She sent photos updates regularly to reassure us he was having a great time. He even got a bath before returning home. We definitely recommend her.
From the beginning Annie was accessible and accommodating. She clearly loves animals and works to make your pup's stay wonderful. She also sends tons of photos which is awesome and reassuring if you are leaving your pups for an extended time. We hope to use her boarding services more in the future =)

Annie was great with Charlie --- he came home tired (from all his play with her pups) and I felt great while he was away bc Annie sent so many pictures!
Annie is very friendly and very flexible with the drop off and pick up times. I received many photo updates, which was very appreciated. My dog was clean, healthy and happy when I got her back. Annie seemed to genuinely care about my dog's anxiety and well-being...(my anxiety too)
Read More...
Annie was very accommodating to both us and our pup (Allie), and the Allie came home extra happy and tired. Annie is now our go-to dog-sitter!
Annie was a wonderful host to my puppy Calee on my short week vacation! She was very flexible with my drop off, and even offered to have Calee spend the night before, at no extra charge, because my flight the next morning was very early. When Calee saw her yard and the puppy she is fostering, Zoe, she went crazy and was running around having so much fun. I can only imagine that was how the whole week went. I very much appreciated all the pictures during the vacation, Calee looked very content! Calee came back very tired and happy. I would recommend Annie to my friends. Thanks Annie for loving my pup!
Read More...
Our dogs had a great first time stay with Annie. She was friendly and fast in getting back to us, flexible with our drop off and pick up times, and close to the airport. Most importantly, our dogs came home happy and tired!
Just left my pup with Annie for 2 weeks (the longest I've left her) and it went better than I could have ever expected. Annie provided photos everyday and the pictures alone showed what a great time she had. It is clear that my dog got constant interaction with people and dogs while she was there. There are plenty of boarding places that offer "VIP" service, but at the end of the day, you want somebody who actually cares about your dogs well-being. I would definitely leave my dog with Annie again and would feel like I was leaving her with a friend. Strongly recommend.
Read More...
Our dogs had a wonderful stay with Annie and her family. Annie is friendly, caring, and flexible. She took great care of our two babies while we were away. She made them feel at home from the moment they arrived. I would definitely recommend her to people. Looking forward to many more doggy vacay's.
Read More...
As always, Annie provided great care for our dog, Blue. She was flexible with our schedule, and she and her daughter managed our dog's quirks like pros. We always feel confident that when we leave him with Annie, he'll come home happy and healthy. Thanks for another great stay!
Read More...
Annie is wonderful! She responded very quickly to us and was very accommodating about scheduling a meet and greet. Our dog Stella loved her and her dogs. She was very caring and attentive...even giving us info and advice about how to help an itchy ear problem our dog has. She is very knowledgeable and has an obvious love and passion for animals. I was very nervous to leave my dog with a new person...but she did everything to make us feel comfortable; from the pre meet and greet (on short notice too!) and emailed us updates and pictures. I would recommend her to ANYONE! SHE IS GREAT :)

I left my 6 month old aussie puppy with Annie for 8 nights and could not have had a better experience! I got lots of pictures and updates and was able to enjoy my vacation and not worry about my baby! She had a big yard to run in and lots of doggie playmates! Annie was very accommodating when i had to pick my dog up a day late because i had a late flight. I will definitely use her services again! Thanks Annie!
Read More...
We will definitely be returning! Annie welcomed our pooch into her home with open arms. She was very flexible with our departure/arrival schedule and sent plenty of photo updates of our dog. She was even kind enough to give him a bath prior to our return. She comes highly recommended.

Annie seems to really enjoy and care about the dogs she boards. She was very communicative with pictures and messages while I was away. The accommodations are modest but there is plenty of room to run around and play which is what matters to my dog and me. My dog came back happy and clean. Her fees are very reasonable which I really appreciated as I was gone for 3 weeks. I do plan on leaving my dog with her in the future.
Read More...
Great experience!!! So appreciative to know my dog was so well taken care of!!
Annie was a wonderful caregiver for our 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels for 5 days! We have never left our pups with anyone other than family before but Annie treats them like family. We were sent pictures and updates the entire time and they even came home washed! Annie and her daughter interact with the dogs, socialize them and ensure they are well taken care of. We would absolutely use her again. I am certain they probably had more fun with her than they do with us!
Read More...
Very kind and welcoming
Sweet Pea had a great time!!!! Thank you!!!
Another perfect stay!
Another great experience for both my dogs and myself with Annie! We boarded our two pups overnight and most of Sunday while we were out of town. While I was nervous at first leaving my little baby girl Alice with pretty much anyone but me, I came back at the end of the weekend to find her just as happy and healthy as can be! Annie also sent lots of pics of them, many with both Bailey and Alice wearing big smiles on their faces :) She was also very helpful and patient with us getting back later than expected to pick them back up, and let me know right away when Bailey's harness had been chewed on by one of the dogs (although I'm sure Bailey helped chew it up herself too!). It's not easy to find someone who takes as good of care of my pups as I would, but Annie always goes above and beyond to make the experience the best for everyone!

My husband and I boarded our 1 1/2 yr old German Shepherd mix, Bailey "Bear" for a few nights while we were out of town visiting family, and were a little unsure and nervous about putting her in a boarding facility or kennel type place seeing as how she had never been away from us overnight and I've heard of wayyy to many bad experiences in those places. We figured having someone keep her in their home would be a much better and more personal option. Of course, any worries I had about leaving her were swept away by Annie and her very dog-friendly and loving home! When I dropped Bailey off, she started playing right away with another dog being boarded there long-term, and seemed completely at ease when I left! Annie also sent plenty of pics and answered any questions I was having right away! Upon picking Bailey up, while she was really happy to see us again, she was sooo exhausted and looked like she had such a great time and non-stop play! We will be boarding her again this coming weekend, along with my baby girl Alice, an older rat terrier that has some anxiety issues because we feel so comfortable with how great she will take care of them! :D There's nothing better than knowing that when we take a trip and have a relaxing vacay, that our pups will be having the same experience, and I feel that this is what they get with Annie and her daughter!

Annie did an awesome job as always! Our pup always loves staying with her, and she was super flexible with drop-off times, which I appreciate. She is the best!
Absolutely wonderful! Annie and her daughter took wonderful care of my dog. I received constant updates and pictures, and she was a very happy pup. Thanks again and we will definitely use again!
The bottom line: my puppy came home healthy and happy after a 10 day stay with Annie. I really appreciate Annie has given my puppy a bath before he came home, he smells great and is super clean. Annie is also very flexible about dropping off and picking up arrangement, which is very convenient for a busy mother of a toddler.

What a great experience! Annie is kind, loving and knowledgable about her four-legged friends and kept us in touch through many photos during our puppy's stay. From the beginning we had excellent communication with her, and she was kind enough to share tips with us when we left.
We highly recommend her!

Annie and her daughter clearly love dogs and sent many photo updates over our 12 day trip! She offers very flexible pick up and drop off, communicates great, and is open to accommodating our pets little quirks. Highly recommend! Thanks!
Annie and her daughter were great with my boston terrier puppy (Bodie)! He was with them for almost 10 days and I don't think he missed me at all!! Bodie was happy in all of the pics I received during his stay. Annie was great and VERY flexible about drop off and pick up times! She does not have the most luxurious house on her street, but her caring manor and genuine love for dogs means that I will use her next time I need a pet sitter!

Annie took great care of our two little dogs. They got lots of attention and were very happy and healthy when we picked them up. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her for any of our dog boarding needs in the future.
Wonderful!!!! Annie and her daughter not only cared for our little Alvin- they really treated him like he was part of their family. I got pictures and an update every day...when it was time to pick him up, Annie asked if I could wait until after her daughter came home from school so she could say goodbye to him- THAT is how much they bonded with him:) They are very sweet and loving people. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Annie is very flexible and great with Jonsey. Enjoyed the pictures I received while on vacation.
My dogs were super relaxed and happy when I picked them up. Annie W was attentative to their needs and mine as well. It was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much!
Our first time with Dogvacay, and we were thrilled with Annie. Our dogs are polar opposites: one is older and in renal failure, the other a high-energy puppy, but Annie managed them both with love and attention. Our older one would normally be exhausted, stressed out, and shedding like crazy after a stay in one of the "luxury" rooms at another boarding place. She had NONE of those issues after staying with Annie. It was as if we'd never left her. Awesome! Highly recommend Annie!

Our dog, Blue, has now spent two weekends at Annie's home. It's clear that she and her daughter love dogs, and I feel at ease leaving him there. He is tuckered out when he comes home, and Annie is always accommodating with drop off and pick up times. I'm sure he'll be back soon!

Annie was wonderful and very flexible which was great for us! She also sent a lot of pictures and checked in as to put my mind at ease on my vacation! I would definitely recommend her as a pet nanny to anyone! :)
Annie was great, as always! She is very flexible and accommodating, which helps us out a ton.
Our dog had a great time! Annie took our reservation on short notice and was super accomodating. Her place is setup tremendously well for dogs, and she clearly loved what she was doing. Will not hesitate to be back!
This was our first time leaving our two dogs, a jack Russel mix and a pit bull mix, with a boarder and it was great! Annie was very flexible, responded to emails and questions really quickly and saved us with our last minute boarding needs. I highly recommend Annie and will be leaving our pets with her in the future!

Awesome Im so happy!! I need to know he's well taken care of and he is.
This host was awesome. She responded to messages quickly (even at odd hours), and was willing to take my dog on very short notice. I know he enjoyed his stay a great deal. I wouldn't doubt that he was happier staying here than he is at home. I would not hesitate to recommend this host.

Annie is awesome! She's exactly what we were looking for in a dog-sitter. Maddie stayed with her for a long weekend and had a great time. Came back happy, healthy and exhausted. Slept in Annie's daughter's bed and played in the huge fenced-in yard. We got pics every night. We will absolutely be using Annie in the future.

I was happy with the service.
Annie was really great. She regularly sent updates and pictures. Our dogs loved the yard and attention she gave them. She was very attentive to our dog, who has medical needs. they came back plump and happy!
Annie was amazing! We will never be leaving our pup with a boarding facility again. Our Athena had four days of continuous playing, love and affection, and a comfortable home.
Annnie kept us updated with lots of picks and phone calls.
We will definitely be using Annie's services again.
Thanks for keeping our pup happy, Annie!

Annie and her daughter got a taste of good dog, awake dog when Casey came to town for a visit.Having never spent the night without her daddy around made for a long night at their doggie haven but not one complaint through the blurry eyes .and a genuine ,"bring her back anytime,we love her", gets Annie AND Josephine 5 stars and 2 thumbs up .Sleeping on the floor w/ my dog to make her more comfortable earns top rating every time! Casey even ran to the front gate that evening when we went back, so I know she had a good time despite her seperation anxiety.They also have some friendly home dogs for your pup to play with,( or not ). Casey played. We stayed downtown and it was about an easy ten minute trip to her haven.Thanks again,Annie

Annie was the best! I had no worries and knew I left my boxer, Laila, in great hands. She called regularly and sent pictures of Laila having a blast. I will definitely have her as my number one choice when I need a doggie sitter in the future.
We travel often and have tried various boarding services. This was by far the best! Annie was super responsive throughout the entire process. She was willing to accomodate our early drop-off time, sent pictures every day, and sent Conan home freshly bathed with his bedding laundered! He is a very high energy pup and Annie was extremely patient and loving toward him. We would absolutely recommend her service and will definitely be trusting her with our crazy pup in the future!

She sent pictures while I was away and let me know how they were doing. My dogs really seemed to have a good time and were clearly shown a lot of love and attention.
I needed a last minute petsitter when my previous plans fell through and Annie gladly took in my rowdy and not-so-trained puppy for a whole week. As I had recently adopted my dog and had not left her with anyone before, Annie helped put me at ease with her updates and my dog seemed to really enjoy her stay. I would not hesitate to use Annie again.

Maggie the schnauzer and MoMo the bichon stayed with Annie for five days and tell me they had a great time. Maggie loved playing outside in the yard and MoMo never lacked for someone to hold and pet her. They appreciated the limited number of other dogs. Sometimes too many dogs can be overwhelming. If your dogs stay with Annie, be prepared for them to come home spoiled.

I requested boarding for my dog a day before my trip out of town and Anne happily accepted. My dog Zep was happy and had a good time running in the yard with the other dogs. She also bathed him so he would be nice and clean by the time I picked him up!
Very happy with the host, Thanks a ton!

I was very happy with having her take care of my best buddy. She was very responsive and put a lot of effort into making everything go smoothly. I had an issue picking him up on-time and she happily accommodated for my problem . 2 thumbs up! Thank you very much!

For our first time letting someone professionally take care of our pup, Ann made sure to make us comfortable with her. It's always unnerving when you have to leave your dog for even a night, but she did a great job of taking him out to walk at his favorite spot and was never more than a phone call or text away. Thanks! Would love to continue working with her in the future.

Annie is super friendly, and took great care of the dogs! They stayed with her for 3 nights, and came home happy and healthy! She gave lots of updates and was easy to communicate with. Even gave them a bath before sending them home :) Thanks Annie!
Unless all dogsitters are this awesome, I totally lucked up! Annie was the only person that I contacted on dogvacay and was completely willing to take care of my Toussaint while I was on vacation. Toussaint is paralyzed in his hind legs and, as a result, has limited mobility and almost no control of his bladder and bowels. I told Annie about this upfront and she wasn't scared at all. She was willing to do a trial 1 night with Toussaint to see if she could handle all of his needs and was eager to learn all the necessary skills, e.g. expressing his bladder and walking him in his dog cart.

During the actual dogsitting period, she e-mailed pictures and updates. At one point, she thought something was wrong with Toussaint and was extremely concerned about him. She called and e-mailed me, but because I was out of town, I was not readily accessible. Turns out he was just having doggie dreams and was trembling a little, which is what he sometimes does. :-)

It was obvious that Toussaint had a fantastic time staying with her and getting the constant attention that he needs.

Annie was very responsive to all questions and concerns. I appreciated her being upfront about anything she thought may be an issue.

After using a local boarding facility that charges surprise fees, I am so thankful that I found DogVacay.com and Annie. I have no reason to search for other dogsitters. I've found mine!
