About Veronica

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and thank you for stopping by my pet sitting page! I’d like to start by saying your pet’s safety and happiness are the number one (and two) priority when they are in my care. I am a HUGE animal lover. I have had pets my entire life - all different breeds. From Boxers and French Bulldogs to German Shepherds and Shih Tzu’s, just to name a few. I've adored every single one of them! I am experienced with brachycephalic dog breeds, large and small. (Awareness is critical living in our hot Arizona climate.) I’ve had special needs pets as well, so I am experienced will all that's involved with caring for special needs babies. I currently have two baby doggies of my own whom are precious to me. Brady, Pekingese; and Periwinkle, Shih Tzu. Both are well socialized. They are super sweet and friendly little guys. They get along well with everyone.

I understand the importance of a quality pet sitter. One that you find peace of mind with. Having struggled myself, to find a sitter whom I felt comfortable leaving my pups in their care. It was challenging to find someone reliable and trustworthy who shared a level of compassion for animals similar to mine. So, I completely understand how difficult it is emotionally, to trust and leave your beloved pet(s) with someone you don't know. Worry no longer, you’ve found a genuine and caring, responsible care provider with me. I know what it takes to provide for a relaxing and loving experience for your pet(s), minimizing any stress and/or anxiety they might experience in your absence. I take great pride in what I do. Animals are my passion – I truly appreciate happy hearts and care free spirits. I can assure your pet(s) will have a wonderful stay in my home. Your dog will always have a buddy to play with (resident doggies – Brady and Peri) so he/she will never be bored or lonely. I will take them for walks, play in the park, they have room to stretch their legs and sun their buns in my back yard, which is fully fenced, secure, and doggie proof. Your pet is treated like family while in my care. Lots of yummy treats, belly rubs, and snuggle time.

About my home: I own my home, it’s an adult only house – no children and no pool. Nice, safe neighborhood with parks and greenbelts to walk. Lots of peace and tranquility to enjoy. The doggies are indoors with use of a doggie door accessing the back yard. I may also provide supervised potty breaks outside for those unfamiliar with using a doggie door. There is plenty space inside the home for indoor playtime. Of course doggie beds, tons of toys, snacks, and endless supply of fresh cold water! At night, after our evening ritual of dinner and a walk around the neighborhood, we all retreat upstairs and snuggle in bed for the night.

Going on a week-long trip out of town or a single night staycation at a local resort? I am available to help!

Do you feel more comfortable with having your pet(s) stay in your home while you're away? I am available and more than happy to stay with them or simply visit/check in on them. In addition to feeding and playing with your pet(s), I can water plants and check mail, etc., while I'm there as well. We can't wait to meet you and your fur-babies!

Note: My work schedule varies. I do work in a professional office some days and work from home other days. On days which I am at the office, I have the convenience of being able to stop by my house anytime so the doggies are never alone more than a few hours at a time. I do provide 24/7 supervision on weekends.

Veronica is the best!
Veronica is great! I have left Nico with her twice, and he seems very happy and content when I pick him up. I highly recommend her for the care of your babies
Trust Veronica! She has a great outdoor space and lots of experience with dogs. My Luna was exercised, pampered and loved.
Veronica was wonderful and it was obvious that Liberty had a great time. Libby can be a choosy eater and Veronica did a great job getting her to eat by making her eggs & chicken. Thanks a bunch!
Veronica was great! We just moved to the area from out of state and had to find a new, trusted dogsitter ASAP, as we had a business trip to England just one week after moving into our new place. Veronica met with us for a meet 'n' greet right away and we immediately felt comfortable having our little Benny Boy stay with her and her two pups, Perry and Brady. She provided us regular photo check-ins to let us know that Benny was doing great. He clearly got along great with her two little guys, who all seemed to have the same temperament. Veronica was very easy to work with and accommodating, and we won't hesitate to use her again next time we travel!
Veronica stayed at our home with our two dogs this past weekend. We were very pleased and comforted to know she was there. She kept us frequently aware of the dogs' happenings with pictures and updates. We will certainly reserve Veronica's services again!
Veronica is awesome! First, she was able to accommodate my last minute request for a rather long vacation. I was concerned about leaving Benny for an extended time, as he has separation anxiety. We had a meet and greet which made me feel more comfortable and I could tell from the start that Veronica has a passion for, and really cares about furbabies! During my vacation, I got numerous photo, video, and text updates. I was able to enjoy my vacation and not worry about Benny, as I could tell he was in good hands! I highly recommend Veronica and will for gsure be contacting her in the future when I go out of town! Thank you so much Veronica!!
Veronica was great! She's very easy going, which made Betsy Ross feel relaxed. It was as if Betsy Ross had a vacation of her own. She loves the back yard. Receiving frequent picture updates kept me at ease. I would absolutely use Veronica again.
Great! My guy was well taken care of by Veronica and enjoyed the company of Perry & Brady! Booking another stay soon...
Veronica paid attention to every need for my Frenchie girl. Daily pictures were sent me that put a smile on my face and to ensure she was doing just fine. Veronica has a true commitment and love not only for her two dogs but while my Frenchie was on her Doggie Vaycay. I would highly recommend her to any future Dog Vaycay visitors. Thanks Veronica!
Excellent service from Veronica - she stopped in to visit Sherlock and took care of his needs, gave him some loving and played with him. All on a moments notice when we had to travel at the last minute. Highly recommended!! 5 stars....
Veronica kept us updated on how Bauer was doing and sent pictures the 4 days he stayed with her. We will certainly request Veronica to take care of Bauer in the future.
I was so happy and relieved to find Veronica. Our vacation was so much more relaxing knowing that our dogs were being well taken care of. We really appreciated that Veronica was willing to take care of our two dogs like her own as part of the family. She asked lots of questions to make sure she knew what the dogs were used to as far as feeding, frequency of walks, etc. Veronica is obviously a dog lover and I am confident that any dog would be happy & loved in her home!
This was Maggie's first stay with Veronica and everything went so well. Veronica and her dogs were very welcoming to Maggie. Veronica was very helpful and considerate of Maggie's needs. We are thankful to have found Veronica and will gladly use her again.
