About Bernadette

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
To share a little about myself I have always loved animals. I've been a cat owner for over 20 years and I've had my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel’s for 10 years.

********************
I am a homeowner and have a nice size fenced in yard. I also live on a cul-de-sac and it is a very peaceful area.

As a dog owner myself, I know how important it is to find loving care for your furry loved one. I will take care of your dog in a loving, compassionate and responsible manner. Their stay includes love and affection, play time, potty breaks, walks, and clean up. I will also send you text or email updates to let you know that although your pet misses you, they are happy and healthy. You can go on vacation knowing that your furry family member will be well cared for in the comfort of my home.

************
PLEASE READ: Currently I will only accept small/medium dogs (40 lbs max) and one booking at a time. At this time I do not accept puppies. There are times when bookings may overlap a day or two if this occurs, I will let you know. Also, I am only taking in dogs that need 2 or more nights of boarding.

I would also like for dogs to be updated on all their vaccines, as well as flea/tick treatments. Dogs must also be house-trained. Dogs may be left alone for 2-3 hours at a time and are always separated when left alone.

Lastly, I would appreciate parents adhering to their drop off and pick up times.

Stays that include any of the following dates will be priced at a Holiday Rate of $45.00 a night. Those days are Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Friday after, December 24th through January 1st.

Bernadette was everything we could have asked for in a caregiver for our dog. We were overseas for 8 days, and we received frequent communications from her about Simba's wellbeing. He very much enjoyed his time at her house.
We left our pup Simba for one night as a trial run for an 8-night stay in a few weeks, just to see how Simba would adjust. Bernadette was was very good in providing several updates and pictures, which I was thankful for. As a shy dog, Simba seemed to start out a little apprehensive but he seemed to have adjusted quickly due to Bernadette's attention and care for him. I feel very comfortable leaving Simba in Bernadette's care for a week coming up soon. I look forward to working with her in the future!

Stella had a wonderful 20 day stay at Bernadette's this time. Bernadette took great care of Stella & kept us updated daily with pictures, videos & notes about Stella's activities & well being. Will definitely use Bernadette in the future & highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a dog sitter. Thanks Bernadette, licks & love from Stella.

Bernadette is amazing! She sent us photos everyday so we can see how well and happy our dog was. Cannot think about using another pet sitter :)
Cookie is so happy to go to Bernadette's house. She is caring and sweet. We absolutely LOVE her!
This review is long overdue but wanted to make sure we gave Bernadette all the stars she deserves! She actually deserves 6 stars! Bernadette is our #1 sitter. She provides our pup with unparalleled care (he's on his best behavior at her house-maybe it's Ginger's influence :) ) and is obviously a very knowledgeable, diligent dog owner. There are lots of toys to keep him entertained and Bogey feels so comfortable there, he barely whimpers when we leave.

Harley and Finley were in the very best of care with Bernadette and family -- could not have been better !!
Bernadette was simply awesome -- a first time experience for me couldn't have been better -knowing that my dogs were in a loving home and family allowed me to have relaxed time away A +++++++++++
Just had Remy over Bernadette's house for the 2nd time and couldn't be happier. Remy enjoyed his stay (and Ginger was a great host I've heard). Bernadette constantly kept us updated with several photos showing how happy Remy was and that he was eating and feeling well. Absolutely would highly recommend Bernadette and imagine we will utilize her services again shortly.

Bernadette is THE BEST! She is very loving and caring. My dog loves her and her family! I really trust her and I can enjoy my vacation knowing that my dog is happy and in good hands. I highly recommend Bernadette.
Bernadette was an excellent dog sitter for my 1 year old Cavalier king charles spaniel. From the moment I contacted her, she responded right away. She was so sweet and friendly and was patient while Leo got used to his new surroundings. She took him on lots of walks and gave me honest reports and sent lots of pictures throughout his 3 day stay. It was a pleasure meeting her husband Louis as well who also helped out. When I told Bernadette that I was to arrive soon to pick up my dog, she kindly packed his things and included a report card and treats. She took great care of Leo. He also had fun playing with her sweet dog Ginger.

Stella had a great time at Bernadette's house! She played with toys and went for walks in the neighborhood. She enjoyed her company with Ginger. Bernadette sent updates, pictures & videos on a daily basis. We're so glad to have found someone who loves dogs and takes such good care of Stella while we're away. We are very comfortable & will definitely leave Stella with Bernadette whenever needed. Thanks Bernadette & licks from Stella to you & Luis.

we love Bernadette!!! Wish we had more days to spend with her!!! xo
We were so happy with Bernadette! She is so lovable and caring. Our dog absolutely loved her! She kept us posted with pictures and updates! We will definitely have her watch our dog again! :-) Torres Family
Bernadette really goes above and beyond and treats our dog as one of the family. She keeps a close eye on whether Bogey is comfortable and regularly updates us with pictures and reports on how he's eating, sleeping, etc.
Peanut loves staying with Bernadette and family. She is eager to get into her house when we arrive. We do not use anyother sitter but her.
Extremely flexible and great response/service. Happy.
Cooper loves going to Bernadette's home for play dates, she is very sweet and loving with Cooper!!
Very nervous about leaving Cooper with somone other than family; recently diagnosed with cushings disease, I wanted to find someone who will give Cooper the love and attention. I met with Bernadette for meet & greet, immediately felt comfortable, she sat on the floor with Cooper - I do this all the time with him. I set up a day care the following day, Cooper having anxiety - Bernadette assured him (and I) there was no reason to worry. After a few hours of treats and playtime with sweet Ginger, I picked up my happy dog. Thank you! Bernadette has a very lovely family (including Ginger her sweet dog). We look forward to more day care and over nights with them all! Licks from Cooper.

Last weekend was Peanut' second time staying with Bernadette. She loved every minute of it. The moment I drove up to her house she knew where she was and was happy to walk inside. We are looking forward to using her again in November.
Bernadette is amazing! She is the best pet sitter ever! She is a very sweet and loving person. She really loves animals and she took very good care of my dog Cookie. I highly highly recommend her and I will definitively use her in the future.
Peanut's vacation with Bernadette and her family was great. Peanut felt right at home from the moment she walked in their house. I enjoyed the daily updates I received. I got a call within hrs of her being there since they found a cyst on her. At that moment I knew she was in good hands. We are planning another doggy vacy very soon.

Bernadette was great with Chloe!! We got multiple updates every day on how Chloe was doing and tons of pics! We could tell our dog was having a great time and Bernadette and her family really do care for and love the dogs that stay with them!

Very easy to communicate with and fast to respond to any questions we had. Chloe will be back!

Being a first-time dogvacayer I was nervous about leaving Coco. But meeting Bernadette reassured me. Bernadette was loving and gentle with my dog. She took excellent care of her by spending time with her, taking her on walks everyday and making sure she had her meals. And the company of Ginger was an added bonus. Coco also frolicked in her backyard and was given all the freedom she wanted. Bernadettte also updated me twice a day with adorable pictures of Coco, and a summary of her activities that day. Bernadette is very flexible with her pick-up and drop off timings.

I would highly recommend her if you want dogcare with compassion and care. I look forward to place Coco in her care for my future vacations.

Bernadette is wonderful! She is extremely caring, making sure she knew our pups habits, likes & dislikes before we left for the weekend and gave Bogey extra attention knowing he can be stressed staying in a new place. He had a great time playing in their lovely yard and going for walks with Ginger. We received regular updates and we knew Bogey was in excellent hands bc he actually ate - he'll go on a hunger strike if he's unhappy!

Bernadette was amazing!! She went above and beyond what I expected, as she sent at least 2 updates a day (with photos) and kept us informed as to Remy's progress. Remy seemed to have a great time with her and her dogs. I would highly recommend her and would definitely utilize her services again.
