About Angela

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
When you leave for vacation; shouldn't your dog get a vacation too? Even when traveling for other reasons, let your pet come and vacation being cared for in a home with a fenced yard; and plenty of doggie and human interaction! I work from home one day during the week; at the office four days per week. I promise to give your pet plenty of attention and loving care. I have one dog of my own; we have done foster care so she is very used to having other dogs around.

We have a large fenced back yard for your pet to play in and enjoy a run. I offer dog walking services; cuddles; play time and fun. Bring your dog over for a visit, and see how nice it is to board your pet in a home rather than a kennel.

If you prefer to have someone come and stay at your house with your pet; I can do that, too! Pet sitting at the guests' home starts at $65 per night minimum; but has to be custom quoted depending on number of dogs; whether I can bring my dog along, how much special care is required, etc. So contact me if you would like a quote for sitting at your home; we'll figure out all the variables and come up with a fair price for us both.

Note: I offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

This was my first experience using DogVacay and my first experience boarding my pup anywhere. I was pretty nervous about it, but in the end, had no reason to be. Angela was great and my Tucker did fantastic with her. She kept in contact with photos and updates. Everything went better than I could have hoped for. Rest assured that your furry friends will be greatly cared for and even enjoy themselves. I would not hesitate to take my buddy back to stay with Angela. Thank you so much!
Another wonderful experience!! She went above and beyond to be flexible and helpful! Will definitely use her in the future. Scruffy had a great time!!!
This was our first time with Angela and judging from the photos she sent while I was away Charlie had a great time. I think having other dog's to play with eased his anxiety. Thank you for caring for our furbaby.
Amazing! Thank you Angela. Stella had such a wonderful time. My dog Stella is use to be at home with just myself but Angela made sure that Stella was comfortable and she LOVED playing with the other dogs. Would definitely recommend!
Angela was very responsive to questions while booking. She was flexible and understanding of a first time DogVacay user. My pups came back from their overnight stay happy and healthy. We would use her services again. Thanks!
Angela was wonderful! It was my first time using DogVacay so I wasn't sure how it would go but it went great!! Angela sent daily pics so I could see how Scruffy was doing and I didn't worry once. I will without a doubt use Angela in the future!
Angela was great with our 2 big dogs. They had fun in her yard. It was great getting to see pictures of their stay also. I was a little uncertain knowing she had to work away from home on the second day, but with time together on the first day, her dog and ours were friends and did well together. Her dog was playful with mine from the minute we arrived.
Our dog Maggie did great under Angela's care. She came home happy and seemed to do well. I think Maggie liked the fences in yard. Angela was great as we were last minute reservations and she worked well with us so we could meet her ahead of time
Thanks Angela !
Angela was such a huge help, we found out a few days before leaving for vacation that our housing plans for our dogs weren't going to work out. Angela was able to accommodate our needs and make our very shy pup feel at home. On top of that she had to coordinate with my mom while we were out of town and communication can become difficult in that type of situation but Angela was so patient and responsive it made things flow smoothly. We are so thankful for her help!
Jovie stayed with Angela while we were out of town for a long weekend. We received several pictures which showed us what a great time she was having with Angela. Angela was great to communicate with and quick to respond. Was a wonderful experience. Would definitely recommend!!
We have two dogs, Hank and Layla, that do not spend much time away from us. Hank is a nervous boy, and he had a hard time settling in to an unfamiliar home. Nonetheless, Angela went to great lengths to make Hank become comfortable with her, and if the vacation would have been longer, I am confident Hank would have been less anxious. I was thrilled to find someone who can not only handle, but appreciate, our dogs as much as we do.
This dog vacay experience worked out great! Angela sent me pictures every day and kept me updated!
Excellent in every possible way. Angela is the best. Our boys always have a blast and come home absolutely exhausted.
Angela is our go-to babysitter. Our dogs couldn't love her more. We never worry about them when we go out of town, which is frequently.
Ok so I was brand new to dog vacay and dog petsitting at all because we just got our doggy in July and hadn't had to board her. Being a newbie I waited until the last minute to book boarding for Winnie over Thanksgiving weekend! I now know that I need to book WEEKS in advance for holidays! Literally the night before we were leaving I contacted Angela and she thankfully did have an opening for Winnie...I was scared to death to leave my little girl (she's a chihuahua mix and only 10 lbs) especially with bigger dogs (Angela was watching another dog and has one of her own) but Angela assured me Winnie would be fine...I literally cried after I dropped her off and was so stressed out but I heard from Angela just an hour or two after I left and she sent pics and let me know that Winnie was having a blast with the other the time we were back from our trip I was completely at ease and knew that Winnie was in good hands! Don't hesitate to leave your furry friends with Angela! She was super easy with the picking up and dropping off and everything went perfectly!
Our pups had an awesome vacation with Angela as always. They absolutely love to run around her fenced back yard and come home completely worn out and happy. I love getting the photo updates while we're on vacation and seeing that everyone is having a good time and behaving themselves, and we love how flexible Angela is with drop off and pick up times. Also she frequently works from home, which is nice because it means our pups don't have to be crated or separated during the day.

We always miss our babies when we go out of town but we never worry about them when they're with Angela. It was an excellent experience and we will definitely book here again.
Angela was awesome in every way. She was very flexible and easy to schedule drop off and pick up with and is home with the dogs most of the time. We don't have a fenced yard so being able to run around Angela's yard and play with her dog is a real vacation for our 2 pups and they always come home happy and exhausted. One of our dogs is anxious in a lot of situations but Angela makes him feel comfortable and relaxed and at home. We will definitely book the Bramble Cottage Doggie Spa whenever available in the future.
(also she advised that she will stay in your home if that's better for you, which we might take her up on in the future)
We could not have been happier with Angela. She watched our rather high-maintenance crew (2 dogs and a cat) for 4 nights in our house. We received frequent photos and updates that kept our minds totally at ease. Angela even stayed late on the day we were coming home because the dogs were stressed during a storm and she wanted to make sure they were okay. We really can't recommend her highly enough and are extremely thankful for everything ounce of care she gave our pets. Angela was also extremely easy and flexible while we were setting up our meet-n-greet with her. She's fantastic.
She was very friendly and responsive! This was the first time I gave used this service and would recommend her to my friends!
The dogs had a great time. Angela was very accommodating and friendly
My nervous dog warmed up quickly to Angela and Angela was very comfortable despite Kween's initial hesitation. She was very flexible with drop offs and pickups.
I could not have asked for a better experience for our dog while we were away on vacation. Angela was responsive and understanding of our concerns. She treated our dog Sasha like she was one of her own. I think our children suffered from separation anxiety more than Sasha did but Angela sent us pictures every day and we could see that she was living it up while we were gone. No more kennels for Sasha. I highly recommend Angela and will definitely use her again when we go on vacation.
Angela was wonderful with our dog Oscar. He had knee surgery on both knees two months ago and she took him on his short "rehab" walks every day and kept an eye on his incision sites. Loved the photos and updates she sent us too! He liked playing with Angela's dogs in the fenced yard and looked perfectly at home in the house.
Angela was great! Roxie was so happy by the end of the visit, it was hard to convince her to leave. The daily picture updates were such a nice touch!
Angela was great! A fenced backyard and other dogs to play with was the perfect combination for my Maggie!
Angela was so nice and flexible with me over the holiday weekend! I was stuck in a lot of traffic on the way back from my vacation and ended up picking Ace up almost 3 hours later than originally planned! She was very considerate and flexible with my late timing.

Ace had a wonderful time and seemed to enjoy being able to play with Angela's dogs in the yard! He came home happy and tired (which is always a good thing!) Angela was great and I will definitely be back again!
No complaints. Angela took care of everything she needed to, provided pictures of how Jack was doing, and kept him entertained. Will definitely be back for my next trip.
This was my first time using Dog Vacay and my first time leaving my puppy Izzy with someone new. Izzy loved it and came home happy! Izzy became fimiliar with Angela quickly. Angela sent me photo updates everyday which were nice to see while on my trip. Angela even took the time to drop her off at my house so she was there when I got back late that night, which was so nice to see Izzy when I walked in the door. I will definitely be using Dog Vacay and Angela in the future.
