About Ashley

My husband and I have had a great time expanding our doggy clients by welcoming new canine's to our cozy home through We love and have experience with a variety of dogs. We do not have any children or dogs of our own, so your pup will be the King or Queen of the castle while he/she is here! Activities will include (unless otherwise requested), walking the neighborhood, taking car rides, and strolling the gem that is Wilson Park. We live a block away from Wilson Park and walk it often, so your doggy will get plenty of exercise. Your pup will never be outside alone and will be inside with us, unless we are out with them for regular potty and exercise breaks. We look forward to having your pup stay with us for it's vacay!

I work within 3 miles from home. On days I have to work, I will be spending the lunch hour at home with your pup for bathroom breaks and meals.

We are willing to work with special requests to meet your dogs needs.

We prefer to watch only small to medium sized dogs, we cannot watch puppies or dogs that require extra care and attention because we both work regular hours during the week.

***It is a requirement that dogs be well potty trained with minimal accidents.

They took very good care of Max and treated him like one of the family.
Ashley and Jim are amazing! They both cared for her like their own! I highly recommend using them!!
I would recommend Ashley to anyone looking for a dog sitter! She was great with our dog and took care of him like he was her own.
This is our second time working with Ashley and her husband and they continued to take the best care of our pup! We were given constant updates via text, containing pictures and videos which allowed us to relax even more on our vacation. I would highly recommend them to take care of your pup/dog on your next vacation. Thank you!!!
Ashley took excellent care of our almost 2 year old Shih Tzu. I was sent constant daily updates and pictures of our pup which made our trip less stressful as this was the first time we used DogVacay. I would highly recommend Ashley for short or extended stays as she gives your pet the attention they deserve! I will be using her again within the next month when my wife and I vacation again! Thank you Ashley!
Ashley and Jim accepted my request in short notice and they were so loving and kind to my dog London. Ashley sent me updates via text and pictures of London having a good time, playing, resting and even eating. London usually doesn't eat when I leave him with a sitter but he was eating with Ashley and Jim and that says a lot! I would recommend Ashley and Jim to anyone and will definitely bring London back. They were the definition of love to my sweet boy!! :-)
Ashley and Jim took great care of our two dogs. We have always used boarding facilities in the past. When using the boarding facilities the dogs would always come home so different than how we left them. This experience with Dogvacay was so much better. The dogs seemed so happy. I could tell they enjoyed it there with them. I liked how we received texts, pictures, and videos from Ashely. Using Ashley as dog sitter was so easy. I hope they continue to watch dogs because I will let them dog sit from now on while I'm vacationing.
I was in the St. Louis area from out of town and Ashley was able to accept my request last minute to watch my 7mth old tea cup Yorkie! I have to say I was nervous but when I meet her I felt 100% okay with leaving her. When I returned I knew she was well taken care of by how happy she was. I would defentinely recommend Ashley...
Ashley was great with our dog! Took great care of her and kept me up to date with pictures and texts. Would recommend her to everyone!
Ashley did an excellent job taking care of Hadouken while we were away for a few days! Our rescue shih tzu is very shy and nervous but it was clear he was comfortable at Ashley and Jim's house. He needs medicine at night and there was no problems with that or his walk schedule--he was probably even better taken care of than at my own house.
Ashley was very helpful and flexible when our travel plans changed unpredictably.
So much better than a kennel for our peace of mind and our pup's happiness. Two thumbs up and a solid recommendation!
Ashley and Jim were more than accommodating with our dog! It was the first time we've ever left her and I knew I had no worries with them taking care of her! They took her for a long walk around the park sent me pictures and even videos of our dog playing with another dog (they were sitting) so happy to have this kind of service so we can relax on our vacations and not worry about autumn being taken care of ! She is in good hands! Highly recommend them!!!
Shilo enjoyed his stay with Ashley (& Jim) for day care while on vacation away from home. He was so at home he played and ate - not typically something he does when I leave him due to separation anxiety from me.

Thank you Ashley!

Ashley and Jim did a great job with watching Stryker! Ashley sent me pictures daily of the activities they were doing which made having a good time on my vacation and not worrying about Stryker much easier. I would recommend Ashley and Jim to anyone needing a sitter for their dog and will use them again in the future.
