About Heather

Here at Companions for Critters we have an absolute passion for anything furry and four-legged! Rest assured while you are away on your vacay, your dog will enjoy their getaway as well!

I started Companions for Critters in 2013 because I wanted to share my adoration for animals with my first born daughter, Bailey. What better way to teach her to respect and enjoy the furry things in life than to involve her in my business every single day? With the birth of my second daughter Madison in 2014, the legacy will only continue! Both Bailey and Madison already cherish the gift of love and bonding experiences they have with every furry friend that comes to stay at Companions for Critters. You will often see both Bailey and Madison accompanying me on pet checks, pet walks, and overnight visits.

There are two resident dogs at Companions for Critters - Kayla and Noel. Kayla is a 13 year old Australian Cattle Dog, and Noel is a fun-loving and energetic 9 year old Sharpei/Boxer mix. These two absolutely love all the guests that visit. Schedule a meet’n’greet today to see how much fun your dog(s) will have here! We enjoy taking our dogs, as well as our visiting animals, for neighborhood walks, hikes, swimming adventures, and much more! We LOVE animals, and would very much enjoy watching yours when you need it. We are a very active family, and strive to ensure we provide enough exercise for our furry friends. We treat every animal in our charge like they are in their own home by attempting to accommodate their normal routine while they are staying with us to make their vacay all the more enjoyable!

We can’t wait to meet you and your furry love!

There are not enough positive words to describe our experience (and our dogs' experience) with Heather, Matt, Bailey and Madison. We cannot believe our good fortune. A sure sign that our dogs have fun is if they don't want to come home - and that is precisely what happened when we picked them up. As we drove away, they both looked out the back window of our car. We could tell they were already missing their new "family". We will definitely be back. If you're looking for a home away from home for your pup, look no further. My only hesitation in recommending Heather & Co. is word will get out and she will be booked next time!
Chianti and Moshin are both good natured dogs, but both of them have their quirks. Moshin sometimes has separation anxiety and Chianti sometimes goes on a barking spree. None of these issues arose while Chianti and Moshin stayed with Heather and her beautiful family of both the four and two legged kind. We got video and picture updates and both pups had so much fun playing in the sun that they passed out in blissful sleep at the end of the day. We will definitely be leaving Moshin and Chianti in the capable hands of Heather and her family again soon!
Heather was a Beyond Exceptional host to Marcie! ...kept in touch everyday we were away with text messages and even pictures of Marcie having a great time with the other critters in the house. Marcie will DEFINITELY be visiting Companions for Critters again soon for a play day... I am sure she would love that! :)
Heather was the best host - flexible and caring. Moose got lots of exercise and activity with the other dogs and we picked him up tired and happy! Also, being right off the highway and having a fenced yard were huge pluses for us. Thanks again Heather.
Since this was our first time using dogvacay, we were a bit nervous on how Sammy (our 1 year old schnauzer) would cope. As soon as we met Heather we were at ease as she was super professional and nice. I knew if something were to happen to Sammy, she would be in good hands. Heather also sent us photo updates, which we loved receiving. We highly recommend Heather!!
