About Emma

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've been hosting through DogVacay for a little over two years, and have loved every minute of it! I'm an active person who loves the outdoors. I've been thinking about getting a dog of my own so I could have a walking/running buddy, but I would love to see different breeds first. I have no pets, so your dog would get all of my attention and affection.

I live with my boyfriend in a gated and dog-friendly community. We have a clean, smoke-free, apartment with a patio. I frequently take long walks, and would also enjoy taking your dog to the community dog park, which is adjacent to my home, if your dog is up for it!

I'm a teacher, so I'm home at around 4:30 each evening and have lots of time to spend giving your dog love and attention. During the summer, I will be off work and able to provide 24/7 supervision. I am also available for daycare and dog-walking during my summer break, so let me know if that's something you might need.

Please check my calendar so see when I'm available. I tend to book up quickly, so reserve me while you can! I can't wait to host your dog!

*Message me for pricing and discounts if you are boarding multiple dogs.*

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Emma was great and my dog, Frisco, had a great time staying with her. This was his 2nd stay with Emma and both times have been great.
Emma - Was super sweet with Doodle. He had the best time under her care. She sent several pictures throughout the vacation and I could totally tell he was at ease. Would definitely book again.
Emma was great! She was super communicative and sent pictures of our pup while my wife and I were traveling. Would highly recommend!
Emma was great with my sometimes anxious little dog. He had a great time and I was happy to get pictures almost every day of a very long vacay. Emma was also very flexible with pickup and dropoff. I would definitely recommend.
My pups had a great time with Emma!
Emma did a great job and made our first Vacay a great experience! Thank you!!
Emma was fabulous.Emma was great with BB. She sent picture everyday to stay connected with me. BB found place away from home. Thanks so much Emma. BB will definitely be back !!!
Emma always provides excellent care for Slinky and regular updates. I definitely would recommend her to anyone who is looking to have their pup looked after for a while!
Emma is so fantastic and we love her - and so does our doggy! Emma is always responsive and sends regular pictures to use throughout our vacay. We use her every time we need a sitter!
Emma was awesome! She treated my sweet pups Yoshi and Ollie so well! She was easy to coordinate with and sent me pics of my puppies while they were there! Would definitely use again!!
Ellie had a wonderful time with Emma! I appreciated all the pictures Emma sent and I will definitely book with Emma again in the future!
Emma took wonderful care of Gwenie, my 12 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. She gave Gwen her medication and accommodated her needs as an elder care dog with ease. I loved receiving the photos of Gwen while I was away! I would highly recommend Emma!
Emma was great! She provided regular photo updates and always responded to my requests quickly. I felt comfortable keaving my little pup with Emma the moment I met her. Thanks Emma!
Emma took care of my buddy Sam for half a week while I was out of town, and I can easily recommend her to other dog owners. If you're like me, you're a little nervous over the prospect of boarding your pal with someone new -- no matter how strong their online reviews are. Emma definitely lived up to her excellent reviews on here. She worked with my schedule, sent me updates daily, and was friendly and professional from the get-go. Most importantly, it's clear that she loves canines, and she certainly made my dog feel at home.
Cooper's stay with Emma was great and very convenient. She was very easy to work with and flexible with our travel plans. Emma sent us several pictures so we could see how Cooper was doing which gave us piece of mind that he was adjusting ok. This really was a great fit for Cooper!
Emma was great! I had a last minute trip come up and was not sure how long I would be gone for but Emma was so flexible and easy to work with when it came to accommodating our needs. She sent photos and texts every day updating me on how Maverick was doing. I've already told friends about her and will definitely use her again in the future!
Emma was great with our Lily! Many walks and snuggles made Lily's week. Would highly recommend Emma and we'll use her again.
Will definitely be using Emma again. Her and her mom were very nice and it seemed like Brody was happy and liked them too! She sent pictures and responded to my text messages which put me at ease while I was away from my baby! Thanks Emma ??
Emma was great. When I picked up my dog he was in good spirits and I could tell that he had a pawsome time. -JC
This was my first experience leaving my 4 year old Lhasa mix, Zoey, in a home environment. I chose Emma for several reasons and couldn't be happier! She sent us updates and pics and it was so reassuring to see my pup doing her normal things like resting on top of the back of the couch rather than the actual cushions which is exactly what she does at home. That's how I knew that she felt at ease where she was. Normally, it takes Zoey a couple of days to recover from boarding at traditional places, but this time, she came home happy and healthy and the transition was easy. I recommend Emma wholeheartedly!
Emma was awesome. She responded quickly and kept in contact throughout the dogs' stay.
Emma was awesome and I will definitely use her services again!
By the time we picked her up, my pup was obviously enamored with Emma! Emma sent us regular update pictures of our dog and was wonderfully accommodating. I will absolutely book her for our next Vacay!
My dog Carl loved his long weekend vacay with Emma!
Emma was great! I know Gabby had a good time. I received a few text/picture updates, which was nice. I will definitely use her again.
Had to book Emma at the last minute so no time for a meet and greet. Happily, Emma is a lovely young woman who had lived in Africa and knew something about Ridgebacks. Her apartment is immaculate and much the size of my condo so Molly was pretty much at home. Emma sent me pictures and Molly looked very content. I would definitely recommend Emma and would book her in the future.
Emma was great. Extremely friendly. She sent updates and photos every day. Buddy loved his stay. Will definitely book her again.
Emma was great! She sent cute update photos and roxy came home happy :)
Emma was very quick to respond to my request, very communicative during my dog's stay and easy to work with in arranging drop off and pick up times. We will definitely use her again!
Emma was great with Bella! She sent me lots of photo updates to let me know how she was doing... Great host! Definitely recommended =)
Emma was a great host to Manolo! She sent pictures and messages to update me on how my girl was doing and made me feel very secure knowing Manolo was well cared for while I was away. I definitely plan to use Emma next time I need a sitter!
Emma is simply the best host.She took very good care of Muffin and also updated us everyday with lots of pictures.We were so happy to leave our baby with Emma in her well kept apartment.Thanks Emma were being so understanding and letting us pick Muffin so late.He will be back soon.
Emma took great care of Moose! She sent us a pictures and he came back to us happy and healthy. We'll definitely use Emma again :-)
Emma was amazing with Juno and she was very flexible with my schedule for drop-off and pick-up. I received photo updates each day and I could clearly see how much fun Juno was having with her. Juno clearly connected with Emma from the moment I dropped her off and I was a bit worried she wouldn't miss me a bit because she had a new friend!
Emma is awesome! Very flexible & very caring - you can tell she really loves dogs and has no problem inviting them into her home. Emma sent pictures & updates of my dog's stay throughout the weekend, which was so nice considering I don't leave her often. I would highly recommend Emma & would use her again! My dog seemed to be very comfortable there & sounds like they went on a lot of walks! Thanks again, Emma!
Emma was great with our English Bulldog, Fergie this summer! She helped to coordinate collecting / returning Fergie to another pet sitter as part of her stay, and she also sent us some lovely email updates and pictures too! Thank you for taking such great care of our wonderful little bulldog! :-)
Emma was absolutely fantastic! She was very flexible and helpful throughout the experience and made us feel very comfortable leaving Calypso for the weekend. She sent regular updates and pictures, and we could tell Caly had a great time!
Emma is a gem - absolutely lovely, caring and responsible - someone you can trust 100% with your pooch (and a fantastic photographer!). I can tell that Boo is missing her already! Thank you, Emma, you will be seeing a lot of us from now!
Absolutely amazing! Thank you Emma!
I know Loki had a great time with this host. I've never had a harder time trying to get my dog to leave a place. Emma has a tender touch and was extremely compliant with my requests. She was prompt with pictures of my dog with comments that made me smile. I plan to use Emma again in the near future.
Emma was absolutely amazing! I don't think our dog has ever had this much fun! We received daily pictures and updates. We appreciated her efforts so much with our dog. We highly recommend Emma!
