About Victoria

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! Welcome to our home where your pet will Come, Sit, Stay, Play .. and so much more!

**We accept new guests who match Gracie's temperament and energy level. We look forward to a meet and greet with your and your pup!**

We are absolute dog lovers in this house! We love all breeds, sizes and temperaments as long as they get along with our resident dog, Gracie. Gracie is a 10 year old Bichon-Poodle mix who is a love bug! She shares her home, toys and treats like a pro! She is very gentle and prefers not to engage in rough play or wrestling with other pups. :-)

We are avid walkers with Gracie and though she is little, she is mighty and will walk and walk and walk! We are also within close walking distance to several parks in Brookline where your dog can enjoy romping and playing with friends. Each Vacay day for your pup will include a minimum of 3 walks around our neighborhood plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime!

We are able to provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency.

We also offer:
-care for elderly dogs
-medicine administration

*Please note: a meet-and-greet is required prior to a reservation request - this is for the benefit and safety of the pups and their people!

I have volunteered every week at the MSPCA in Jamaica Plain for over 2 years. In addition, we are an approved foster home for a local Pitbull rescue (the approval process includes a home check, vet check and reference verification among many other steps).

We look forward to giving your dog the experience of a home away from home Vacay!

Victoria was wonderful. Very responsive, warm, and great with updates during our dog’s stay. Highly recommended.
Victoria was wonderful! Lily was well taken care of! She had two walks a day, running time, snack time, nap time on the couch, what more could you ask for!! Victoria also provided pictures each day we were away which made us feel so good about where she was. I highly recommend Victoria and plan to use her in the future!

Jada had a fantastic stay with Victoria and Gracie! She couldn't have been better cared for and we loved getting daily updates and pics from Victoria.
Another great stay for Rosie!! I'm so glad Rosie has a home away from home while I'm away. She's had quite a few nights with Victoria this summer, and Rosie is definitely having fun. (I receive daily photos from Victoria confirming this) Thanks for taking such great care of my girl....Rosie and I are so lucky to have met you and Gracie so many years ago :)

Lola loves her visits with Victoria and Gracie!
Another great stay!! Rosie loves her little pal Gracie and new friend Penny. Thanks for always keeping us updated with pictures and texts, while we're away from our pup Rosie. Thank you!!
This was Rosie's first stay with Victoria. she had a great time and I knew she was in good hands. Victoria was so terrific because she sent me lots of pics and updates during Rosie's stay, this was so reassuring and I was able to relax and enjoy my vacation, knowing Rosie was happy and being well taken care of.

We were very happy with Enja's stay with Victoria for our June vacation, so we asked her to take care of Enja again for another 9 days.
I can only repeat what I wrote in my last review. We appreciated very much the updates and pictures Victoria sent us. She took great care of Enja and we would certainly book another stay with her. We can highly recommend her.

We left our dog Enja for two weeks with Victoria. We were very nervous about it because it was the first time we left Enja with a dog sitter for more than 1 night. But Victoria took very good care of her and sent us many pictures. She kept us updated with everything. We were able to enjoy our vacation very much and felt that we don't have to be worried about Enja at all.

Victoria is amazing! Our poochon, Yogi, always has an amazing time with Victoria and her pooch, Gracie. He has stayed with her multiple times and has a BLAST every time! She sends us regular text updates of how Yogi is doing, including adorable photos of him playing, napping, walking and loving his DogVacay every day. We are so lucky to have found her!

Victoria was fantastic! She did a great job taking care of my dog and sent me cute pictures and updates while I was away. My dog had a fun weekend and I was able to enjoy my time away without worrying about him. Thanks Victoria!
Victoria is great, a very kind person and treated Enja, our dog, very well!
It's not easy for us to leave Enja with somebody else, but Victoria took great care of Enja and sent us many pictures of her. We appreciated that a lot!
We'll have her as a dog sitter again, for sure!

Victoria is so great!! She takes excellent care of my dog and is great about keeping me updated. She really is the best!!
Victoria is amazing. She is excellent with my dog Ezra and he is really comfortable with her. She is very accommodating and I give her my strongest recommendation!!
Victoria was great! Louie loved his stay and was well taken care of. Victoria stayed in touch and was very flexible on a last minutes change on dropoff due to some bad weather. Would definitely book again. Tried to give 5 stars but couldn't get it to work.

Lola Bella absolutely loved her stay with Victoria and Gracie! In fact, I can tell she already misses having other doggie friends around. The text updates and the pictures Victoria sends multiple times a day are great. I know Lola is in good and loving hands when we are away. I will definitely use Victoria and DogVacay again!

Another trip, another successful stay! Yoshi had a great time again with Gracie and Victoria, and I got lots of photo updates throughout the weekend to show off to my friends :)
Victoria was great! Her place is super dog-friendly, and her little dog, Gracie, was a true lady about sharing her toys and space. Victoria sent me tons of updates throughout my trip, with pictures of Yoshi playing with one of the other dogs she was sitting that weekend too. (Apparently, the two of them didn't stop playing almost the entire weekend!). And when my flight back to Boston was cancelled due to a snow emergency, Victoria didn't even bat an eye when I told her that I needed Yoshi to stay an extra day. All in all, a great dog sitting experience!

I cannot say enough great things about Victoria! She made our baby, Yogi, feel right at home, and eased my mommy worries throughout our entire vacation! She is responsible, attentive, and will treat your pup as one of her own....Yogi didn't want to leave his new favorite babysitter and new best friend Gracie at the end of the weekend! So happy we found Victoria!

We were having an extremely hard time finding someone to take our dog for the day the day after Christmas - everyone was full or out of town! Victoria responded to my request right away and was happy to take out dog while we visited with family. She kept in touch with us while she had out dog, sending texts and photos. I felt fully comfortable leaving my dog with her. She had the dogs meet outside (her own and one other she was boarding), showing she understood territorial issues that sometimes happen when dogs meet. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her to others.

Victoria is a wonderful person and my dog Penny's stay with her and Gracie, her adorable dog went incredibly well. When I met Victoria for the meet and greet I could tell immediately that she is professional, responsible and loving. I was away for nine days and Victoria sent great photos of Penny at least once a day and kept me up with how Penny was doing. I was worried my dog would feel like I had left her in the lurch but I think Victoria made Penny feel at home and incredibly loved. Her home is warm and inviting and she seemed an understanding, patient and compassionate person; all attributes which my rescue dog needs in a caregiver.

Victoria was very helpful and Ezra seemed to have a great time. She kept us up to date on what was happening by texting us messages and pics of their activities through the day. I would definitely recommend Vicortia!
Victoria was great! Very responsive & very flexible. You could immediately tell what she was doing. I had no doubt that my "girls" (2 dogs) were in care. Thanks, Victoria!
I could not have found a more perfect dog-sitter! Being my first time to ever leave my dog with someone other than family, I was extremely nervous. Victoria was very friendly and considerate of the fact I was so nervous leaving him and sent me so many texts with pictures and updates of Charlie enjoying his stay. She made this process easy and not scary at all! She made Charlie's stay super fun for him with all the long walks and trips to the park! I will definitely be using her again!
