About Vini

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a student and dog lover. I became a DogVacay host in November of 2011. I have a flexible schedule and can care for 1-2 dogs in my home or yours. I have been with DogVacay for several years and I love it. If you chose to bring your pup to my home, you will find that my dogs are pros at being DogVacay hosts and will quickly accept your pup into our home.

Your dog will be walked several times throughout the day. A typical day includes: morning petting, dog walk, sunbathing/laying near the air conditioner, nap, long dog walk to the park, couch potato naps, dog chase zoomies (sometimes), dog walk, eat dinner, long dog walk, under the blankets.

In my free time I volunteer at the local animal shelter and when I am not doing DogVacay I am fostering dogs from the I have a great love for dogs of all breeds, sizes, and needs.

I love caring for dogs and make sure to love them, keep them safe, and play with them all as if they were my own. To make sure that I can treat them like my own I will not accept multiple bookings at a time as I would not be able to give the dogs the attention they deserve.

I also have experience with dogs with physical injury, physical abuse, neglect, fearfulness, anxiety, and aggression.

Vini really came through for us when our regular dog-sitter had a last-minute schedule change. He was responsive, gave us photo updates, and accommodated our travel plans 100%. I especially appreciated his attention to the dynamic between my dog and his during the meet and greet - that is what gave me confidence that my dog would be in good hands, and she was!
Vini is great with anxious dogs and owners - calm and patient. He was really great with communicating and sending us pics/videos of how Nahbee was doing. I know our dog was well-taken care of - like she was part of the family, especially after seeing how comfortably she played, slept and hung out with the Squeak and Shabby (they are super sweet dogs, by the way). Nahbee really did have a wonderful holiday weekend with Vini and his family. Thank you so much, Vini!
Vini took great care of our boxer Wade! He took him on a 5mile run every morning, cuddled with Wade on the couch and sent us daily photos. I was thrilled with the care and will definitely return for more dog sitting. Thank you Vini! Ann & Matt
Vini is very flexible and easy to work with.
Izzy and I went over for an initial visit with Vini, Squeek and Shabby (Shabby's actually very cute!). Izzy got along well with everyone, so I felt very comfortable leaving her the next week at Vini's for her first sleepover. Vini sent me a text and, to my amazement, said that Izzy cuddled with Squeek. Izzy was very calm with I got back, which to me is the best indication that she was very well cared for!
Kobe loves to stay at Vini's. We are super pleased to have Vini's calm,loving care. We never worry about our boy.
Vini was awesome! He sent photo updates of Winnie almost daily and would message us what she has been up to. Winnie looked to be in heaven with the other dogs and appeared to truly enjoy her doggie vaca.
Vini was amazing. Couldn't recommend enough. He took Andy on runs, to the dog park, and gave him plenty of love and attention. He updated us daily with photos, and even made Andy home made dog food when he wouldn't eat his own. Great communication and easy to talk to. His two dogs were icing on the cake.
Kobe gives vini and cori a 10. As do i.we are very pleased with all aspects. Theft second time Kobe arrived he pulled me to the door. We will book again for sure. A pleasure to have such courteous service. The photos are a nice touch!
Vini R. was the second Vacay person my dog and I interviewed. My 2nd dog gave a paws down to the first person. Not so with Vini.

Vini responds quickly to inquiries, follows directions, was given access to my home to visit, feed, and provide outdoor access to my elderly dog. He seems deeply comfortable with dogs. He provided service quickly even though given short notice. I would use his services again.
Vini and Cory were great. The kept us informed of how our dogs were doing and both of them seemed like they enjoyed their stay. Definitely would recommend them!
Vini took great care of our Patches! He fed him, groomed him, and took him on walks. Vini's two dogs welcomed him into their home, and began romping with him as soon as we walked on. He sent us updates along with photos very day. Patches had a blast! we have had many sitters over the years, and Vini was definitely the best yet! We will use him every time we travel to our cabin in Truckee.
Vini is amazing with our dog Obi! We always feel so peaceful knowing that he's in such excellent hands! We receive pictures all the time and our dog always has such a great time with Vini and his two other dogs. I strongly recommend leaving your dog with Vini for a worry-free vacation. Our dog is very well taken care of and loved and he always returns happy and obviously missing his friends.
Vini was great with Kali and I was able to fully enjoy my vacation thanks to Kalis dogvacay. Highly recommended!
Vini was very understanding of my situation (had to extend an extra day), but on the second day I was not able to contact him when I needed and could not pick up my dogs until very late that night. At that time he wasn't home and left his door unlocked for me to get my dogs. I tried calling him several times because he made it seem that the backyard gate was where I would be picking them up from, and I only found out the front door was unlocked by a roommate yelling from upstairs that the door was unlocked. This as you may guess was very frustrating.
Cori was very accommodating and I loved that she sent me so many pictures throughout the week! I would definitely recommend Cori to anyone.
She has two little dogs, and Cori gives you some treats to give all the dogs when your dog meets them so they all feel like this meeting is a good thing. I got a few pictures while I was on my trip, and my dog was happy and tired from all the playing when I picked her up. Cori was flexible with drop off and pick up times.
Our dog had a great time with Cori and her furry friends. We are definitely going to book with her again in the future!
My dog had a wonderful stay with Cori! He had lots of fun and I was sent picture updates of him periodically. I will definitely take him here again! Cori was very accommodating and flexible with pickup and drop off times.
Over the busy Thanksgiving holiday, it seemed like every candidate on DogVacay was either booked or not available to watch my 13 year old lab, Bosley. Luckily I found Cori who was more than willing to let Bosley spend the holiday with her. She was very accommodating to him and he quickly made himself at home with her and her two dogs. I'd definitely use her services again.
I would definitely recommend Cori for your next doggy vacay stay. My Bella can be a little bit rambunctious at times and Cori was extremely patient with her. She provides your dog with ample exercise and fun time so your pup will not be bored. In addition, Cori goes the extra mile and you can easily see her love for dogs. She sent me pictures of my dog during her stay which provided me with a peace of mind and was an awesome treat when I was starting to miss her.
Cori was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her. She was quick to respond to a last minute request, took great care of my 2 dogs and cat and we really appreciated all she did for us. We came home from our vacation to happy pets. Thanks so much Cori!
Cori was great! Easy to work with, met her at dog park for a playdate with her dogs beforehand, received photos of my dog during the vacation and was comfortable knowing he was well watched after in our absence. Would use Cori again!
Cori was AMAZING, she was basically like a Knight in a shiny armor for us, turns out, we had a reservation with another girl but her dog and my dog didn't get along (mind you we have had 2 greet n' meet) and we were leaving for over 2 weeks. Dog Vacay helped us find Cori and she took over my Rottie which is huge and takes out lots of space and attention, she kept sending me these lovely pictures that were the best part of my day (I was traveling for business) with all the fun things he did with them and I could tell he really enjoyed the company of her 2 little doggies. We were sooo happy he's staying with them in some weeks time:)
