About Vickie

My name is Victoria and being a pet parent myself,I know how hard it can be to leave your beloved dogs while you
travel.

Boarding your pets in kennels can be stressful to them and you...in addition there is not 24 hour care available.

I am home most of the day time hours and always at night. I take my own dog to the park or river trails every day for a good run and would include yours in the fun
My large back yard is fully fenced and dogs have access to a covered and screened porch with fans and misters, There is a dog door in it that provides access to the back yard.The house is located at the end of a quiet dead end street which enables the dogs to enjoy access to the front yard play areas as well.
Twice daily on leash walks to Ancil Hoffman park and/or Sara Court which are both walking distance from my home are always included in my services.
As my lab Ellie loves to play there are always evening games for dogs included and encouraged to wear them out before bed time.
In addition I can give medications and or treatments to any pets in my care that may need them.
My home is very pet friendly and dogs are allowed on couches , beds etc if that is what they do at home.
For dogs that are crate trained . I have several set up in my home that are able to be used by guests if you do not want to bring your own over.
The love and care you show your dog at home will always be given here .

Vickie was friendly and welcoming - I appreciated her posting photos of Ferris. We plan to book a stay with her again!
Our dog Max has stayed with Vickie two times now - one daytime visit, and a two-night stay. Vickie was very easy to work with. She limits the number of dogs she has at one time which made me feel more comfortable. She also seems to spend a good amount of time with each dog and give them the attention they need. Max was in good shape and didn't seem nervous or stressed about being there. We plan to use Vicky again next week, and more in the future.

Vickie did a great job with our dog! We will not hesitate to use her again next time we need a dog sitter.
Our dog Jack spent a day with Vickie and her dog. He had a great time and was well looked after. He is slow to warm up to new people and is scared of other people putting him on a leash. Vickie worked patiently with him and won him over and he ended up going on a fun outing. Thanks!

Grateful for Vickie's patience and kindness towards my aging dog who is blind and requires insulin.
Vickie was great - very easy to work with and took wonderful care of our 6 month old pup!
Vickie was wonderful! Our dog is a senior citizen who had previously only stayed with family. Our family was gone for a week and was very anxious and worried about leaving our "princess". We shouldn't have been as she was thoroughly spoiled and loved. Vickie sent us updates and pictures which eased our concerns. We feel so grateful to her for taking such great care of our Tigger. Every time we get in the car she wants to go....we think she misses all of her pampering! We can't thank you enough!

Vickie is wonderful !!! This was my first time using dogvacay. I did a few meet and greets with different sitters prior to booking my vacation away. Vickie was the only one I met that I felt 100% confident and comfortable leaving my guy with. She takes on only a couple dogs verses most places that have several dogs all sizes. My guy gets along great with other dogs however he is very large, only a puppy , hyper and is still in need of some training and manners. Right away I could tell Vickie was great with him.
He stayed with her for 5 days. I was able to completely relaxe knowing my guy was safe and completely taken care of. She sent daily pic and updates, which I loved. When I picked him up I could tell he had a wonderful time, dog park, walks, swimming, play time with Ellie. She also found treats he likes and sent me home with a treat bag. He has been calm and taking several naps since I picked him up its amazing. He was also bathed and smells great . I can tell Vickie worked with him, he seems to be listening better and has betters manners. Overall I couldn't have asked or hoped for a better dog sitter. Vickie has a special talent with dogs, she really cares about them and treats them as her own children .

I needed to board my dog on short notice, Vickie was very responsive and was able to watch Tasha with little notice. Tasha had a great time, went to the park, became more comfortable with cats... Thank you for a great stay Vickie!
Vicki was excellent! She cared for Slugger as if he were her own, and Slugger came back happy and tired. She did a fantastic job getting him out to dog parks for exercise. I would highly recommend Vicki for your dog-watching needs!
This was my first time leaving my dog with Vicky and I will definitely be using her again! I knew Vicky had done a great job when my dog (who has puppy energy) slept for the rest of the day after I picked him up. Vicky texted me photos and updates on my little pup and it made me feel at ease knowing he was getting along with Vicky's dog, Ellie, and that he was being exercised and cared for. She even gave him a bath after he decided to splash around in a mud puddle. She sent him home with a treat and gave me all the information I could want as a new dog owner. She was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up time. And, she did this all with a fractured ankle! Needless to say, I was very pleased and would recommend her to everyone.

Vickie was fantastic. She has a real way with animals and her concern for them is evident. we left our dog Puddin, a nervous shy creature who had never been away from us for more than 2 days, with Vickie for 2 weeks and Puddin truly enjoyed Vickie and the companionship of other dogs in her care. Vickie makes sure your animal is compatible with those in her care and goes to great lengths to give time and affection to each dog. We won't hesitate for a minute to leave Puddin with Vickie the next time she needs boarding.

Once again, Vickie took great care of our little dog. She is able to help him feel comfortable and at home even when he's away from home. He came home tired after a lot of exercise and hanging out with other dogs. I would highly recommend Vickie to care for any dog who wants to have a safe, fun place to stay.

My rescued dog is a work in training. fresh from the pound, charlie was still nervous. Vicky T took on the hurculean task of taking care of my little spitfire while I was away. She showed patience and love to this little guy who was so afraid of everything. I respect Vicky t enormously ! I would have no reservations to book with her again. thank you vicky t!

Vicki is a great choice for high energy dogs that need more than just a walk during the day. Her pup was a great playmate for our girl too! Her yard is rather small, but don't let this deter you because she does lots of outings with the dogs and keeps them active! We loved that she gives raw meaty bones for a snack and was happy to feed our raw foods diet so there was no change in our pup's diet while we were gone. We also loved the prompt responses and photos throughout our trip (we are nervous puppy-parents!) We look forward to using Vicki again for future trips!

Vickie,did a wonderful taking care of KOKO our pet while we were away,om our trips,texting pic and dailey updates on how she doing.it was great.
Vickie always takes wonderful care of our dog. We have had her take care of our dog quite a few times and each time he enjoys coming back to Vickie's. Even with a dog who needs special attention, she was able to provide him a safe, comfortable and loving home. I highly recommend Vickie!

Once again, Vickie took great care of my dog. She treats him just like a member of her own family. My dog enjoyed the other dogs and even made friends with the cat! After lots of exercise, he was tired and happy when he came home. I would highly recommend Vickie to take care of all dogs.

Vickie was AWESOME. I needed a last minute Thanksgiving sitter and she came through! She sent me numerous photo texts throughout the days. My dog was tired and happy when I got home. Please call Vickie!
Vicki did an outstanding job with Cali I would her use her anytime.
Vickie was a great host! After our meet-n-greet I felt confident leaving Ozzy, my 15 lb cavalier, in her care. Ozzy got plenty of exercise as Vickie took him on daily walks to the park or the river for a swim. After three days of nonstop fun, Ozzy came home exhausted and slept for the rest of the day.

Vickie took great care of my dog during a 10-day vacation. I felt completely comfortable leaving my dog with Vickie, knowing that she will treat him as her own dog. My dog had a great time, and actually seemed a bit depressed when he came home, and missed his other dog friends! I highly recommend Vickie and will trust her again with my dog.

Once again Vickie was great with my dog Bo. He had a fantastic time staying with her and Elle.
Vickie was a fantastic host! She was friendly and great with my dog Bo. I was nervous leaving him behind as he was only 6 months old but Vickie was amazing. Right away he liked her and I could tell he was comfortable. In the future I would use Vickie again.

Vickie is a true dog lover, she took good care of my dog. He got a lot of runs, got special treats and on top of that he got a nice warm bath. I am so happy with the special treatments that Benny got. Thank you so much.
Vickie took wonderful care of my two dogs while I was on a weekend trip. She treated them like her own dog, and they all got along quite well. I trust that my dogs are happy and I don't have to worry when I travel. I highly recommend Vickie if you don't want your dog in a kennel and would like your dog to feel at home.

Thank you Vickie for taking Benny to the river He loved chasing the stick in the water. He Also enjoyed playing with Ellie. He was enjoying his tummy rubbing. You are a true Dog lover.
This was our first experience with Dog Vacay, and WOW! What can we say? We were so pleased with our experience leaving our girl Lucy with Vickie and her sweet girl Ellie for 11 days while we were out-of-state over the holidays! It gave us such peace of mind to know she was with someone who would not only provide her with a safe place to stay, but who would show her attention and affection as well, rather than being kenneled. Lucy is older, and not very active, but being with Ellie seemed to give her renewed energy and playfulness. They became grand friends! Vickie took them to the park to play and exercise every day, and was actually able to get our Lucy to fetch, something she didn't do with us before her stay with Vickie! We received pictures and email updates which were very reassuring. Vickie even gave Lucy a Christmas stocking with toys and treats! Vickie is very focused on providing canine guests a positive and stress-free experience, and Ellie is the perfect companion for guests, and we would highly recommend Vickie and Ellie as hosts to anyone who is seeking a safe, happy place to board their beloved canine-kid!
