About Stacey

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Recently relocated to Cambridge from Washington DC. I have spent 10 years boarding, caring for and looking after a variety of dogs! I am blessed to have had them in my world! Now that I am settled and I realize I have plenty of time, As a consultant, I work from home so I get the joy of sharing some of my time with these furry friends! As I have lots of experience with dogs that have history, I seem to be getting many requests for dogs to be alone. I am happy to host only one but PLEASE NOTE, if your dog needs to be SOLO, I will provide a custom quote and charge +$20 per day.

Sometimes it makes more sense to stay at the dog's home because they are in need of the stability and consistency in building their routine and schedule. So I may be available to come to your place.

If your dog stays at my place, I will always mirror your house rules.(i.e.; not allowed on the furniture at your house, they will not be allowed on mine OR they sleep on your bed, then they can sleep on mine) Lots of love, walks, and attention will be given!

This is not my full time job and I already have a dedicated group of clients, so note my calendar books quickly, I apologize but I do not always update this calendar so check with me about a date. Hope to hear from you!

Stacey is wonderful with dogs. She has watched my pup on many occasions while I was on travel. She is a true dog person who will love and care for your dog as if it was her own. She would stay at my place and take care of my pup for days at a time. I would trust her with my life. You couldn't ask for a better person to watch over your most cherished pets or valuables.

Stacey has watched our dog and cat (Sadie & Theo) on several occasions and she has been excellent. The animals absolutely love and adore her, which is the best testament in my opinion. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is extremely reliable and trustworthy.

Stacey took care of Elli and Diablo for several years prior to her move to Boston. I have had dogs and cats off and on for 30+ years and she is the best pet sitter I’ve ever used. I never had to worry about medication (both are old and sick), adherence to schedule or quality spent with them. I also knew if there was an emergency, Stacey would be quick-thinking and resourceful. What truly sets her apart is her ability to connect with the animals. Not only would she tell me stories about the time she spent with my guys, but I ran into her on several occasions when she had a dog in tow. You could see she takes the time to develop relationships with all her furry clients and they always looked very glad to be at her heel. We all miss her in DC and highly recommend her as a walker/sitter!

Really, truly terrific!!!!! Holly can't wait to come back!!!!
Stacey is an active, conscientious, and reliable host. She watched my English Bulldog, Dannie, who is movement-averse, for several day-long visits and somehow Stacey transformed Dannie into a much more willing, energetic dog. Dannie came home happy and exhausted (!) after her days with Stacey, but I have noticed a positive change in terms of her willingness to be active. I would absolutely recommend Stacey.
Stacey was great for both us and our puppies!!
Stacey was fantastic! We are thrilled to have found such a wonderful person who was genuinely happy to take care of our pup. Enrico came home exhausted but calm and happy. Throughout our workday Stacey sent us updates of their walks (yes, plural!), of Enrico napping, and simply hanging in her beautiful home. This was his first time away from us since we adopted him and our first time using DogVacay, we feel fortunate that we found Stacey. During our Meet and Greet she came across as knowledgeable, competent, and genuinely interested in Enrico. He will definitely - and happily - go back to Stacey's when we have long workdays.
This was our first time using DogVacay. Stacey was far beyond our expectations! She did an awesome job of taking care of our puppy Bosco. He seemed to addict to her and didn't want to go back home, lol. Stacey quickly learned Bosco's hobbits and walked him frequently. She let Bosco sleep wherever he wants. We got pics/videos updates every several hours. She also wrote daily paper log so we have a better idea of Bosco's activities during this time. She even washed Bosco's chew toys. We highly recommend Stacey and will definitely book again with her. Thanks a lot, Stacey!
As the owner of a dog with separation anxiety, Dannie was beyond happy to be with Stacey! I enjoyed the frequent video and text updates, and I know Dannie enjoyed far more attention and care than she may get on certain (most?) days with me. Thank you, Stacey! I look forward to booking with you through Doggie Vacay again. Exceeded expectations.
Jack seemed to have been taken care of very well. Stacey was on top of our instructions on how to care for Jack and Stacey was extremely abiding. My son picked up Jack and I was told Jack wasn't ready to leave Stacey and her place. Will be utilizing Stacey as her schedule permits, which is hopefully often. Thanks Stacey!
