About Emily

Experienced dog owners would love to care for your pup! Raised around large dogs and working with rescues and kennels from an early age I've gotten the best hands on experience I could ask for. My 3 year old black Lab mix rescue is my best friend. We love to go hiking and swimming as much as we like a relaxing day on our back porch! We love our little backyard dog sanctuary. I am available all mornings and afternoons and work just 2/3 evenings at most each week. My boyfriend, Nick helps me with all boarders and daycare as he only works early morning a few days a week. We also have chickens and rabbits (don't worry! They are safe from the dogs!) We're available to suit your pups needs from late evening' morning walks, a game of fetch or just a moment on the couch. Let me know if your pup needs a pet sitter! We would love to be your choice!

Emily was amazing with Oliver. It was a great experience and we will for sure use her again! Thanks Emily!
Emily is a great and quick communicator! She took great care my pup and the whole process was a breeze. We will be referring to Emily again for any of our future dog needs.
Emily was fantastic to work with and a great host for our pup! Charlotte had a blast with her new best friend. She even pouted all the way home after her stay. Emily was very responsive to all my questions and requests and sent me pics throughout the stay. She loved on Charlotte from the minute we arrived. I highly recommend Emily, and we look forward to our next visit/stay with Emily and her pups!
Received pictures and updates on boys. Liked that Emily had a blocked entryway so that dogs couldn't run out front door.
Emily Rose was great. She was able to take care of our Mo last minute due to a cancelation from another care provider. She is great highly recommend her.
Emily was really cool and my man Mingus had a great time. He came home quite exhausted after playing with all the other pups! I would definitely use Emily again.
This was my first time using DogVacay and I was very impressed. Emily was a great host, and I plan on booking with her again in the future. I highly recommend Emily to host your dog!
Emily was great! Titan came home an exhausted, happy puppy. Her dog, Spider, is a great playmate. She sent us several great pictures of him during his stay there, which is always reassuring to a puppy parent!
Emily was wonderful with Jilly. Her apartment is very pet friendly, as well as her adorable Spider! She let Jilly on the couch with them, which I'm sure helped her anxiety. Also, my schedule changed so frequently, and she was flexible enough for a last minute reservation over the holiday. Jilly left happy and I will definitely use her again!
Emily is a consummate dog boarding professional, complete with regular updates, a genuine love for the pups, and a cheery demeanor in the face of holiday travel woes (ours, not hers). Will definitely be sending Shiloh back for another stay at her chateau!
Emily is great! It's our second time using her to check in on our pups. She is great with dogs and provides photos and updates all along the way. We will definitely be using her again!
Emily was a great host for Penny. She provided updates and photos throughout our long weekend trip, and her dog Spider got along great. She was also gracious enough to let us come by after our flight arrived at midnight to pick up. We look forward to having Penny stay with her again.
Loved Emily's set up. She was easy to work with and had a great yard.
Emily was fantastic! Very confident and great with my two active dogs. They clearly had a great time with her and got lots of outings.
Emily opened her arms and home to my pup after a fiasco with a different DogVacay sitter. She was really great, easy going and sent me pictures of Rosoce during his stay. Thanks again Emily! -Leah
Emily R. was a God send. She responded very quickly on short notice. She also listened to our baby Lilly's needs. Thank you for putting our minds at ease. We would definitely recommend Emily R.
Emily was a GREAT host for my buddy Tug! This was his first time being "boarded" since his adoption last year, and I didn't know exactly what to expect (and I've never used this site before). Emily kept in excellent contact with me during my week away and answered any questions that I had promptly. Needless to say, Emily exceeded my expectations 10 fold! I've already schedualed Tugs next stay with her months in advance because I know he will be taken care of and happy! He also loved all the puppy company he got to play with! I expect him to be sleeping for the next few days! GREAT HOST. 10/10.
Emily was outstanding....She got back with me right away even though I was a new client & I was seeking a dog sitter last minute. She was so flexible & personable, & did so wonderful with my dog Tigger. She definitely has a passion for animals, and I felt completely comfortable leaving him with her. I will definitely be using her again, & it's just an added bonus that Tigger made himself a new friend. :) I wish three were more than 5 stars to give because she's deserving of more! :D
Emily took great care of our pup and was very quick to communicate. She hosted a couple of other dogs , which made for great playtime and a tired girl when we picked her up (a good thing!)
