About Frances

Hello! We are a human girl called Frances and a 16lb Boston Terrier girl called Quincy, and we host well-mannered adult dogs of all sizes! I work mostly from home as a professional actor and writer, but my real raison d'ĂȘtre is making pups smile ;) We specialize in dog services for film/tv/literary professionals, so everyone is treated like a star!

In Brooklyn, we host in a beautiful brownstone, and are now getting set up on a full acre in Rhinebeck/Red Hook/Tivoli!

We're big into iPhone photography ("missuku" on instagram!) We're open to clients from Dutchess/Ulster/Columbia/Greene counties - could your furkid be our next muse?

Let's have a Meet-n-Greet :)

Frances is terrific. Arlo loved her and i felt very comfortable leaving my puppy with her.
I had Frances watch my 3 year old Boston Terrier for a weekend. Dealing with Frances was as pleasant as I could have possibly imagined. My pup came back to me with all smiles.

Frances is equal parts professional and caring. Her little Boston Terrier Quincey is a great companion.

I would recommend Frances to anyone looking for a dog-sitter and I hope we can use her again in the future.
Milo has stayed with Frances and Quincy many times, and we are so lucky to have them host our pup! I know that every time he goes he is well loved and has plenty of playtime, walks, and belly rubs. It really is his home away from home. It's never easy to leave him, but knowing that he is with a family who takes such wonderful care of him makes it less stressful for us all. Milo has a quirky personality and Frances has been so patient in accommodating him.

Thanks, Frances, for everything you do for our Miloman!
Thank you Frances for taking care of JoJo. She was always quick to respond to texts about how he was doing and was flexible with picking him up when my flight home was delayed.
Frances and her pup Quincy were incredibly sweet, responsible, attentive and responsive while they took care of our 50lb hound dog, Mia, for a week. Frances updated us with great instagram images of Mia's time away which we loved! I highly recommend Frances and look forward to using her services again!
Frances took on the task of my yorkie puppy Oliver and I am so grateful I know he's a handful! Oliver had a great time and I can tell he was cared for and loved! I've never left my dog with a pet sitter, only in my home with my friends or at a kennel and I wasn't sure how he would behave! But it seems he adjusted over time and I thank Frances for her patience with my pooch!
Frances and Quincy were WONDERFUL hosts for our boston terrier Milo. Frances was very responsive and flexible, and Milo was clearly loved on while he was away. We're thrilled and hope Quincy and Milo can get together again sometime!
Frances was amazing! I feel so lucky that we found her to watch our Beatrice. It was the first time we have ever left Bea with someone who didn't know her already and we were a little nervous about it but as soon as we met Frances, we knew Bea was in excellent hands! She posted pics of Bea and her pup, Quincy, everyday on Instagram, so we could see what fun they were having while we were gone. We highly recommend her to anyone who needs a loving and attentive dog sitter for their pup! Thanks Frances & Quincy!
This was Abbey's second time staying with Frances and her dog Quincy and she had another great experience. Of course, she was super-tired when she got home but I expected that since she's rarely around other dogs for long periods of time - I figured she'd get home and crash - which she did! I'll be utilizing Frances' services again. Thank you! I think DogVacay is one of the best things I've discovered this year! It's super convenient, and a great, less expensive alternative to the kennel.
Awesome! Frances and her dog Quincy were great hosts for my Abbey. Frances kept me updated with instagram photos of Abbey throughout my time away and she was clearly happy. Abbey will definitely be going back to Frances and Quincy for another dog vacay. Thanks!
