About Vanesa

29 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are both big time animal lovers. We have an 11 yr old. Lhasa Apso that we rescued several years ago. I have raised and cared for various kinds of animals (bunnies, birds, dogs, cats...) my entire life and can accommodate most types of pets.

I moved from NYC where I was working at the PetSmart Pets Hotel. We boarded dogs and cats and provided playtime. I have a lot of experience with different kinds of dogs and am used to typical and atypical dog behaviors.

I live in a house with a huge fenced backyard so playtime will be a blast. Plus, my husband works from home so there will always be someone at home with your baby.

Your pets' mental and physical well-being will be my top priority. :)

I am experienced with giving injections and oral medications.

Tyson told us he had a great time at Vanessa's house. I don't think he even wanted to come home with us. Well, maybe a little.
I received photos every day showing me how much fun Tyson was having. She is very caring and attentive to the dogs
Tyson can't wait to go back there next time we go away!
Vanesa was an awesome host! Her and her husband have an awesome backyard and are both very caring and love dogs. Marco will definitely be back!
This was the first time I had my dog, Fred, stay with Vanesa, and I couldn't have asked for it to go any better. Fred needs medicine given to him for dry eyes, gets nervous with storms, and is an extremely picky eater. All of these were addressed, and Vanesa handled his needs with no problem. She was very patient and kind to Fred, and it showed; he looked great, and was perfectly calm when we picked him up to go home. I am so happy to have found Vanesa to watch my boy.
Fabulous care! Extremely kind and loving to my dogs. Received pics and texts daily. My babies were very happy and made themselves at home because of the comfortable environment! I highly recommend Vanesa! Thank you for allowing me to enjoy my vacation without worry!
This was our first time with Vanesa and she was outstanding with our Leo! Love the daily pictures of Leo. Yes I will use her again and recommend her too!
By far Vanesa and AJ are the best sitters I have ever met. I can tell they loved my little one as much as I do. And they are just super nice people.
Great! My dogs loved Vanesa and her husband. She is very accommodating and responsible. A sitter you can trust.
Vanesa and her husband AJ were awesome! I've never left my dogs with anyone other than close friends or family so this was a step outside my box, and WOW was I impressed!!!
I got pictures every day, quick responses when I wanted to check in AND our rescue may even like them better than us!!!
Our dogs were there for a long weekend and we have already rebooked them for the upcoming month. As long as they are willing to do this and they are available we will request them to take care of our fuzz heads!
Thank you Vanesa and AJ!
Our girls had a great time with Vanesa. They loved the yard and all the attention. Thank you, we will be back!
Vanessa was amazing! I have 6 rescue pups and it is not easy finding someone who will not only take all six, but has the temperament and confidence to actually be able to handle all 6. From our meet & greet I knew Vanessa was the one I could trust. Her and her husband were very calm and loving towards the pups. They did not even flinch when we dropped off 6 crazy pups along with all their stuff & yes meds too. The pups loved their big fenced in back yard so much, they didn't even really care that we were leaving. Vanessa sent pics & updates & I knew after the 1st picture that they were all feeling right at home. I would definitely recommend Vanessa to anyone, if she can handle 6 rescues all with their own quirks and some with medical needs she can handle anything!
Vanessa was excellent! She sent daily updates along with pictures, and we know that our pup, Wendy, was very happy and very well taken care of!
Vanesa and husband are the sweetest, they took great care of our baby Lana. We will be definitely use in the future.
We had an all-around awesome experience leaving our dog with Vanesa! She responded to all our questions right away and was very accommodating with our last-minute reservation. She and her husband are true dog lovers; it's obvious that they simply love hosting furry guests in their lovely home. We've already recommended Vanesa's services to several of our friends, and will definitely use her again in the future.
Very good experience for our dog Maverick. We felt very comfortable leaving our pet with Vanessa. She has a very nice home and is a very good dog sitter. She sent us updates and we could tell that she cared about our dog and our dog was comfortable with her. I would definitely recommend. We will look forward to using her services again!
