About Allison

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Allison. I'm a single mom of a 9-year old girl. We have a great place for your dog's vacation; a small fenced in back yard and a park to explore across the street. There are lots of kids and dogs in my neighborhood. My daughter will be active in caring for your dog. She gives them lots of love and mini training sessions; just the basics.
(For old friends--My sweet Doberman, Sasha, passed away last fall.) Sasha was on tons of medication for her heart condition, in addition to receiving insulin shots twice a day for diabetes, and a grain-free diet. If your dog requires medication, I am very comfortable administering it.
I do not have a dog walker, so I am only able to watch your dog Friday night through Sunday. If by chance, your dog is ok with about 10 hours of alone time during the day, I would consider watching him/her during the week.
I'm happy to have any size dog (only one guest at a time) as long as they are kid friendly. If your dog tends to get into things when left alone, they must have a crate. Please bring your dog's bed/blanket/crate and special toy so they're comfortable while you're away.

Allison is a great choice to watch your four legged friend!! She is super nice, flexible and easy to coordinate with. If you are looking for a reliable dog-sitter who will take great care of your dog - look no further than Allision! She is great!
Allison was fantastic. Very welcoming of Nellie, took great care of her and send some picture updates. Would absolutely have Nellie stay with her again and recommend her.
Allison was great. She responded quickly. She sent updates on Desi. I will definitely book with her again.
Great hosts! Very accommodating and responsive. Their doberman is very sweet too.
As always, Allison is excellent host for Desi. She provides warm a loving environment for my pet. She is always at the top of my list, for my pet sitting needs.
Moby seemed to have a great stay with Allison and her great dane, Sasha. Allison has a nice back yard for doggies to lounge in, which is a new experience for Moby. I really appreciated how Allison dealt with my dog's fear of thunder and an unexpected intestinal upset. We hope to come back again!
Appreciated how easy Allison is to work with. I don't love leaving my dog in someone else's care but felt I left him with someone who has good commonsense, and in kind, gentle hands.
Allison was fantastic. She was super responsive and flexible on pick up/drop off. She took great care of our Albie and we would definitely have Albie with vacay with her again.
Allison is great, we have no fears or worries when we leave Rocky with her. He's well cared for, walked and loves laying on the back porch.
Allison is a great host. Desi has stayed with her in the past and he is always excited to see Allison and Sasha. Allison is great about sending pictures of Desi when his on vacay with her. I could not ask for a better person to leave my pet when I am away. I can rest easy, knowing that my pet is in a happy environtment. I will continue to contact Allison first, for my doggie vacay needs.
She was great!
I really appreciated how quickly Allison was able to respond to my request. She is a very conscientious and professional pet sitter. Desi is always happy when I pick him up. They treat him like he is apart of the family. I will always go to her first for my pet sitting needs.
I needed Desi to stay another night with Allison. She was very quick to respond. Allison had no problem fitting Desi in another night. I would highly recommend Allison for your doggie vacay needs.
Desi has another great visit with Allison. She sent pictures of Desi during his stay. I could tell he had a great time. I will always contact Allison first, for my doggie vacay needs.
Thank you so much Allison for taking care of Tank while I was away, he looked like he had such a blast! Great dog sitter - highly recommend using Allison for ur next doggie vacay!!!
5 Stars I felt so comfortable leaving my precious Betty ( 55 lb red nose pit bull) with Allison! She was so accomodating as it was a bit last minute! She allowed me to come by first and check out her home AND she is 2 minutes from my house! Her home is clean, beautiful and dog friendly with a sweet backyard for those rainy days when the dogs have to go out but may not really want to. She gave Betty walks every day, took photos and emailed them to me! I will definately use her again.
This was my first time using this service. I was very pleased with Allison's service. I was impressed with the photos that she took of Desi during his stay.

I felt very comfortable leaving Desi in her care. I would highly recommend Allison as a host. I will be using her hosting services future.
Rigby had another wonderful doggy vacay with Allison and her doberman Sasha! I am sure he is looking forward to his next vacay.
It was my first time with Allison, she's great and pleasant. She sent me a picture of my dog while I was gone, he looked happy :)) I will definitely pick her again.
Was able to make a last minute reservation with Allison and was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up time. JoJo came home happy and TIRED from all the playing. Thank you for watching our pup!
Allison was wonderful! Her dog Sasha is a sweetheart and I know my dog, Rigby, enjoyed his stay. Allison sent updates with photos of Rigby playing in the park, on walks, and playing with other pups! It was so fun to see the pictures of him while we were away. I know Rigby enjoyed himself and got plenty of play time!
Allison was great. Her experience with dogs and her relaxed home is the perfect place to leave your pet while you are out of town. We were really happy with the experience and Allison was generous enough to let us use her spare dog bowls for Rocky, I forgot them when I dropped him off. Great experience and a great sitter.
Allison was a lifesaver! I had a last minute change in plans and she was able to watch my two pups for a week with little notice. We scheduled a meet and greet and she quickly put my worries at ease about leaving them while I was away. She sent me daily photo updates, and they had a blast with her. The boys will definitely be visiting Allison again on my next trip out of town!
Allison was great. My dog was well looked after. Allison's communications were prompt and courteous. She went above and beyond what I would have expected. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Yet again Allison was great with Autumn!
Allison took great care of Mindy, and provided a soft bed because I had forgotten to bring the one I had for Mindy. Allison send me several pics of Mindy during my rather lenghty vacation. Mindy stayed active during her stay, getting two walks a day and meeting several neighborhood dogs.
Allison and her resident dog were great with our geriatric dog. She was very flexible with pick up and drop off times, which we really appreciated. We will definitely ask her to watch Tucker again in the future.
Allison was great --- very easygoing and welcoming. This was our first time leaving Cupcake with her but she seemed very happy and Allison sent cute pictures.
My two dogs had a wonderful time at Allison's house. I received picture updates and the pups were happy and well adjusted upon their return home. One of my dogs requires medication and Allison was diligent about giving her the meds. They can't wait to go see Allison and her daughter and dog Sasha again!
Allison was great with Murphy! She went above and beyond! I would recommend her to anyone.
New to the area with a sudden business trip, I was pretty desperate trying to find last minute care for an elderly, diabetic dog until I found Allison on DogVacay. She responded quickly to my email (on a Saturday) and we quickly set everything up. I loved being able to drop off early and then pick up after work and having pictures arrive every night I was away was wonderful. The best part is that Allison realized that Ginger is a coach potato and let her mostly sleep. She came home calm and happy instead of wired and frazzled as she does from kennels. I'm very happy with how things went and plan to use her services again.
Once again, great experience with Allison!
Allison helped us in a real jam.

only a few days before our trip we had a change of plans and needed to have someone watch our dog. She was very helpful with having us book last minute, and even put up with our dogvacay newbie mistakes with the website.

she sent photos to let us know our dog was doing well, and was very prompt with all communication.

would definitely use her in the future!
Again, Allison was great! Autumn loves to go there and be with Allison's sweet dog Sasha.
Allison was great with Avery! She was able to fit us into her schedule with not much notice. When I brought Avery back home, she was completely exhausted- she must have had a blast! Thanks Allison!
Allison was great! When I picked up Duncan, he was happy and healthy!
Allison is a great dog sitter. Her dog Sasha is a sweetheart and very welcoming as well! Allison took Autumn last minute for the weekend and sent a couple of really sweet photos of her. We will be using Allison soon for a longer stay and are confident Autumn will be well cared for.
