About Courtney

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Saying I love animals is an understatement, but I LOVE animals! I grew up on a family farm in Missouri and have been around all kinds of animals my entire life. You name it and I have probably had it as a pet at some point. I was always bringing home stray dogs and cats to keep. I get told on a regular basis that I chose the wrong career and should have worked with animals. Pets are a part of the family and should be treated as so! You should have peace of mind knowing your pets are in good hands when you can't be there and I would love the opportunity to meet and love them! I work M-F until 4:30 PM, but am available after that and on weekends.

Well this is going to be easy. Full disclosure, Courtney is my girlfriend, but to be honest I think the first love in her life has always been animals. Whenever discussing her "dream job" it always involves animals and she was soooooo excited to find out that dogvacay is a thing.

Courtney is diligent in caring for our two cats Zoey and Holmes, and beyond that shows them an incredible amount of love and affection each day. She loves them so much. Even if they are bad she tells them "NO" and gives them a firm kiss! If a friend's pet passes it brings her to tears every time. One time I sent her a picture of a dog on the street and her response was, "Hey, that's my dog!" She loves them all.

Part of her 9-5 job involves choosing and caring for companion animals as well as aging humans. I went with her as she checked every single shelter in Richmond to find a dog (Murphy) with the perfect temperament to provide companionship for the elderly. And if Murphy ever gets sick or has any issues Courtney worries about him around the clock and makes sure he is taken care of. I know you shouldn't bring your work home with you like that but you can't help but respect and be moved by how much she cares.

If I were to pick the best person in the world who would take good care of a pet or animal, Courtney would be #1 on that list every time.

Courtney is amazing- calm, professional, kind and she let our dogs sleep in bed with her!! Our dogs tend to get a little nervous when we leave but they took right to Courtney and had no issues while we were gone.
Thanks for taking such good care of our pups!!!

Courtney was fantastic! The dogs took to her immediately, and they even slept in the bed with her. She was very quick to respond to any communication, let me know what times throughout the day she would and would not be there, and she even sent a picture of them to me while I was away. The dogs were happy when I got home, but they weren't frantic - which lets me know they were calm and relaxed while I was away. I would highly recommend her for any pet sitting job. She clearly loves animals and takes very good care of them.
