About Haley

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When you leave home your dog deserves to stay somewhere loving and caring. We treat every dog like our own. To keep dogs happy we believe in lots of playtime, personal attention, a soft place to rest, and plenty of treats!

I have been dog sitting for a long time, and about four years ago started inviting dogs into my home. I love it! The dogs are happier, with tons more individual attention. Michael grew up caring for dogs, his dad was a trainer for many years, and he knows a lot about dog behavior and first aid.

We have a large fenced in yard with a trampoline(dog hammock!), a kiddie pool, and plenty of toys and bones. Happy dogs are tired dogs!

Once they are tired we have three couches and numerous dog beds. Everyone always sleeps inside and no guest dogs are left outside when we are not home. When we leave all dogs are separated for safety reasons either by rooms or crates. Dogs are also separated for feeding.

I also do check ins for dogs in their own homes including walks, potty breaks, feeding, etc.

We have welcomed many foster dogs into our home over the years. So severe anxiety, inability to walk on a leash, not being completely house broke, and all sorts of other issues are nothing new. I would be happy to discuss any concerns you have about your dogs special needs.

Our dogs mean so much to us, we know you choosing us for your dogs to stay with is a big deal. Thankyou, please contact me with any questions! We promise plenty of pictures and updates!

Haley did a fantastic job staying several nights with our sickly dog, plus a cat and 6 hens. She gave out meds, walks, and lots of attention. She is smart and personable and we have already booked her for a repeat...feel totally comfortable with them in her care.
Haley was an awesome host. Caring atttidue, great communication and a nice space for my dog to play outside.
After our meet and greet, I felt confident that Haley's place would be a good option for Gustav. She is very relaxed and kind and allowed him plenty of time to become comfortable. After I dropped him off, I got daily updates (videos and pictures) of him having fun with other dogs or just relaxing on his mat. The location is out in the country a bit and worth the drive because Haley did a great job, and Gustav was well cared for.
Did a great job watching my two dogs. Was very responsive and gave extra attention to my pup who was a rescue and is scared of new places. Will use again!!
Haley was easy to communicate with, and my dog seemed to enjoy her 8-night stay at Haley's house. There is a big outdoor space for dogs to play. There were several dogs there, so it is definitely a place for dogs that like other dogs. Overall we had a very good experience.
Eli had a great time with Haley over the holidays. He was worn out when we picked him up. Haley sent us photos of him and gave us updates. She was also very flexible on the drop off and pick up times.
I totally messed up the reservation and Haily was very kind and fixed me up. She was kind to my dog and took good care of him. I recommend you use her.
Ruby had fun with the other dogs. She came home happy. Thanks for taking such good care of her.
Haley was such a kind and warm host for Tully. He was so well loved and HE loved all the time he got to spend running.
Haley was great! She watched my pup for 4 days and sent photos and updated me every day! I would definitely recommend her to others!
Our dogs seemed to really enjoy themselves. They came back happy and tired. Haley was very accommodating of our dog who is afraid of crates and she sent multiple photos/updates while we were away. Thanks, Haley!
Being new to the area we have no family or friends nearby to watch Pepper anymore, so this was the first time we were going to have to go with a service like DogVacay. We chose Haley after reading all of her amazing reviews and we are very happy with our decision. It's a little bit of a drive for us but SO worth it, Haley is amazing and Pepper was excited and had a good time. Haley sent us pictures and checked in with us daily on how she was doing. She is a high energy, year old puppy and she came home tired for 3 days!! We are definitely going to continue using her!
I gave a last-minute request to Haley to watch my mini poodle Maybel while we went away for Thanksgiving break. She followed my detailed written directions exactly and texted me pics of Maybel without my asking. Thank you!
Jasper had a great time playing in Haleys big fenced in area. He was nice and clean when I picked him up. This was a great vacay for him!
Haley was great! She was very communicative, gave us daily updates on how the dogs were doing when we were gone for three days over Thanksgiving, and was flexible in the times we could drop off and pick up our dogs to coincide with our flights. Lots of room for the dogs to run around at her place. Definitely would recommend her if you need someone to watch your dogs.
Haley was great! Willie had a great time running with the other dogs out their and slept for two days after we got him home.
Haley went above and beyond for our dog. She even took her to a trail nearby and let her play in the creek. This is her absolute favorite thing to do, and we didn't even mention this to Haley. We were SO impressed with how great she was. We really hate leaving her, but this was the least painful it's ever been. She sent us pictures and updates throughout the entire trip. I can't recommend her highly enough!!
Haley was great! I got back from Thanksgiving yesterday and my dog Cotton is still worn out. Thanks Haley!
Haley was great! It was Hudson's first time being away from home and Haley was very responsive to all my messages and sent great updates and pictures. Hudson had so much fun playing with all of the other dogs and Haley's flexibility made the whole process so easy!
Haley is so kind and loving. She does not expect all dogs to be the same and gives them the care they need based on their personalities. We will use Haley as much as possible.
As always, Haley is a perfect host and great communicator.
Once again, Honeycow had an awesome time with Haley. Can't recommend her enough!
Haley was wonderful as usual! Perfect care and communication. Honeycow loves going to her place!
We needed a last minute place for our 70lb boxer mix when the beach house we had rented that was "pet friendly" suddenly let us know they had a 25lb limit!? Haley was super accommodating and answered all of my questions since this was our first time to use dogvacay. Our sweet pup had a fantastic time at Haley's. He is a nervous guy at first, but warms up quickly - Haley took the time to get him acclimated and he settled in in no time! She sent pictures and updates throughout the week. Huge backyard that was perfect for playtime! We will definitely use Haley again!
Honeycow had a wonderful time once again! Haley is a fantastic and very communicative host.
Our dogs loved their stay with Haley. She was able to accommodate both our shy and rambunxious dogs.
Haley was a godsend when I needed a sitter on the spur of the moment. She spoiled my puppy and he had a great time hanging with the other boards for the weekend. Although she sure did tucker him out, little guy slept in the next morning. lol. She sent daily updates and even pics to ease my mind. Haley's easy to get along with and she sure does love her dogs. Thanks Haley, 'we'd use you again in a pinch.!!
We were scheduled to go to Atlantic beach when our normal sitter had to cancel unexpectedly. We called every where and could not place our Dachschund for 4 days. We took a chance and called Haley, going only on the strong reviews of her on the site. Surprisingly, they were very accurate. I liked her instantly! Haley is very friendly and showed understanding of our situation. She was flexible about the last mnute plans change and good with my dog. I came back from vaction to a happy dog, so I am very satisfied. We'll be coming back as loyal customers.
Haley is a kind, thoughtful person who seems to understand how to properly oversee multiple dogs. When dropping off my very excitable but friendly 80lb lab, Haley gave him plenty of time to check out the house and yard before meeting the 5 other dogs individually. She has a great knowledge of what is needed for a dog (and it's owner) to feel comfortable in a new environment.

Cooper came home happy and well exercised. Her property is in a quiet area with minimal traffic nearby. Will be using Haley's services again!
Haley was great! She has a nice fenced-in yard where my dog had a wonderful time playing with hers. She's quick with communication and provided plenty of updates. She also works extremely well with rescue dogs, having fostered many - my dog (who is usually shy and skittish, being a rescue adoption himself) was quickly at at ease in her home. Highly recommended!
Haley is great! Sam enjoys his time with her so much! I cannot be more thankful :)
Haley is very good with my little Eli!
Haley was great with Blazer and very flexible on drop off and pick up!
Haley was awesome! First, because she got me out of pinch, when another sitter canceled. Then, because she was flexible with pick-up time (which was extremely helpful, as I was unable to pick Dreyfuss up when I expected).
Dreyfuss loved playing with her dogs in her open yard out in the "country".
Haley was great. Very easy to work with and our dog, Bud, loved his stay!
Dogs loved it! They had plenty of play mates and Haley did a great job of sending us updates while we were away!
We are as happy as can be.
Great pet sitter! Friendly and very accommodating. Great outdoor/yard space. Highly recommend.
Absolutely wonderful with dogs of all personalities. So thoughtful and caring. Highly recommend!
Haley was wonderful and my dog was so much happier to be with her than at the kennel I have used in the past. Haley's dogs are sweet and everyone got along very well. I am so glad Haley was able to keep my dog over the Thanksgiving break and I will definitely call her again in the future. Thank you Haley!
