About Holly

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dear Puppy pal, Our family would love to have you stay with us. We walk early and late up and down the hills by our home. If you are up to it we will walk through Sabin Hydro park, two blocks from our house or to other surrounding parks that have big trees to look at. Gracie, our little dog is the best host and would love to share our big back yard with you. If you need a little private time you can hang out in the gated side yard. Let us know if you would like to set up a time for a meet and greet.

Highly recommend! Our dog Leon had a recent spinal cord surgery so we were extremely picky about who we let care for him while we were on vacation. From first meeting Holly it was obvious that she was very sensitive to his needs and that putting his care first was her priority.
She was easy to communicate with, reliable, and had a safe home for Leon. Couldn't ask for a better experience. We will be using her again soon! Thank you Holly :-)

Randy, Selina, and Leon
Holly was a life saver, after a last minute change in my schedule I was left struggling to find a walker for my dog. Holly responded to my request very quickly and managed to schedule two walks for Chester.
Holly was a fantastic dog sitter! Very reliable, organized, and attentive. I could not have felt more comfortable leaving our dog in her care. Our pup gets anxious when we are away, but when we picked her up at Holly's it was as if we had never left! I strongly recommend Holly, and look forward to booking another stay soon. Thanks, Holly!
Holly was a wonderful host - I felt extremely comfortable leaving our dog in her care. She really cares about the pets she is taking care of, takes time to know what she need to know about them, and makes sure you feel comfortable as well. The picture updates were always so welcome. Olive was a happy pup from the moment we dropped her off to when we picked her up!
I could not have been more pleased and satisfied with Holly's attention to Clifford. He was very well taken care and loved while I was away. She sent pictures every few days with very cute captions. That alone helped me to know that he was in good hands and well taken care of. She walked him, spent time with him, socialized him with other dogs and enjoyed having him there.
My dogs had a great time at Holly's house. They were calm and happy when I picked them up. Holly is very attentive to the dogs, has a great house and family and takes them on nice walks daily. I was very happy and am so glad to have a great dog sitter in Portland.
Holly was wonderful to our dog. Whrn we picked Bayley up he was happy and content. He clearly had a good time. Holly hss been respnsive and helpful. We are pleased to have found her.
Holly was really nice and our dog felt super comfortable there. She sent pictures daily so it was nice to see our dog having a good time while we were away. I will definitely be using her again the next time we take a trip.
Holly and her families are very caring and patient! She sent me pictures everyday. A good experience.
Holly and her whole family went above and beyond for my dog's extended stay with them. Updates were frequent, and she was returned happy and healthy to me. Very pleased with our experience - would highly recommend.
Holly and her "crew" did an excellent job of a last minute reservation to take care of Oscar. Details were covered, and my dog is home happy and well cared for. A nice experience.
We're delighted with another great vacay for Rikki with Holly and her family. Holly was flexible, understanding and patient when we were a bit disorganized this trip - Thank you, Holly! And we love getting the daily photo or video updates. We can see Rikki is well taken care of and getting the TLC she is used to at home. We all look forward to seeing Holly next time!
I appreciated Holly's relaxed but careful approach to welcoming my dog (standard poodle). Holly provided the highest quality of care at a reasonable price.
Holly takes such exceptional care of my sweet girl, Stella. I feel completely comforted knowing she is in such good hands while I am away. Appreciate your help so very much, Holly! (And Stella absolutely adores you!!)
Holly and her family were wonderful with our 2 pups. They had a great time and it was nice to get pictures of them lounging around. There was a nice yard for them to romp and play. They are looking forward to their next stay with Holly in September.
Holly and her family took care of Tanner as if he were their own family pet. We enjoyed getting the daily photo updates and could see he was happy. We appreciate the love and care Holly and Murray gave Tanner while we were away. Thank you so much! Marijo Labrousse.
Holly is an amazing host and took the best care of our dog Willie. We (and he) are looking forward to his next visit!
Holly was awesome as always! Super thorough and flexible.
We have had Holly & her family watch our dog Foxy numerous times and they are now like family to our sweet dog. They are flexible, easy going, kind and just really wonderful people. I almost don't want to review them for fear that all their wonderful reviews will keep their calendar too full for Foxy! But seriously, if you are looking for someone to take care of your dog, we couldn't recommend Holly, her family and their little dog Gracie more. We will never use anyone else if we can help it. Thank you all so much for your care of our baby!
Holly was great! Very thorough...sent us pictures during the walk and left a note summarizing the walk. Will definitely use her again!
Holly is wonderful with our border terrier, who is an energetic dog, to say the least. She walked him alllllll over the place, and I think it might have even been raining that day. We've used her a lot, and highly recommend her!
Holly and her family are angels! We never have to worry about Murphy's care when he goes on "sleep-overs" at Holly's house. We know he receives the very best TLC from her - thank you again Holly!
Thank you once again Holly for your care and concern for Murphy. He was so happy to see you again and we so appreciate the extra time you take to be sure he's not depressed while he's away from us. Your TLC is the BEST - Murphy will see you again for sure next time we need to travel.
Holly and her family were amazing. We knew the minute we walked into their home and met them our pup would be in good hands. Holly is very organized, attentive to our needs, accommodating, and quick to respond. The environment was warm, welcoming and clean. We would highly recommend her, and would use her again.
Keera loves Holly and I love her caring attitude and thoughtful questions. Holly made sure to know as much as possible to find out if we would be a good fit. Keera fell in love quickly with Holly, who has what I like to call 'dog magic'. It's great to leave Keera with someone we can trust!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! All good things! Our border can be high energy (some might classify as annoyingly so…), but she was fantastic with him, and our dog was very happy. We don't usually keep him with other dogs, just to relieve stress, but our dog and Grace had no problems whatsoever. Everything was perfect. Will use again.
Once again, Murphy was a very happy camper at Holly's house. The TLC he receives from Holly and her family is so appreciated! We'll definitely be calling upon them again when it's time for us to travel. Thank you Holly! Mary
Once again, Murphy had a GREAT time with Holly and her family. Holly kept us updated with pictures and notes throughout Murphy's stay so we didn't worry about his care while we were traveling. Her patience, TLC and love for animals is very evident. We feel so fortunate to have found Holly and will definately call upon her again when we travel.
Rikki's second stay with Holly was just as great as the first. Rikki came home happy and tired and we relaxed on our trip without a moment of worry. What more can you ask? Thanks Holly!
Holly and her family are so wonderful! They treated Bradley like one of their own and they kept us up to date on Bradley's adventures. We felt so comfortable leaving out fur baby with them we were able to enjoy our mini vacation! We will definitely be booking with Holly again!
Holly and her family are terrific! We always feel comfortable leaving Tanner with them.
We are so thankful for Holly!! She worked with us super last minute and made sure everything went smoothly. She sent us fun photos everyday and from the looks of it Stella was treated like a queen! We'll definitely use Holly and her family again.
I highly recommend a doggie vacay with Holly. Rikki came home seeming just like she would any day we came home. Just happy to see us. Holly was quick to respond every time we contacted her, sent plenty of photos, and accommodated Rikki's complicated meal routine. She also got to ride in the car and go to the park! Yay! Thanks, Holly! Rikki says send Avery licks!

Great visit as usual.
Holly and her family are amazing! We found Holly kinda last minute before our family vacation and she made us feel right at home with her and her family! It was a great relief to know that Tilde was in great hands! The communication and daily pictures were much needed as we missed our Tilde! Would I use Holly and her family again? Absolutely with out a doubt! Tilde loves this family oh so much!
Holly and her family were wonderful hosts for our active puppy Olive. She went above and beyond to create a welcoming stay for Olive and was very adaptable to our schedule. We enjoyed and were comforted by the daily updates and regular communication while we were away. Thanks again Holly!
Holly is fantastic! Murphy receives the very best TLC in her care!
Holly was terrific. I will definitely use her again. Thanks Holly.
Holly was a great caregiver. Due to allergies, I had just switched my dog to a pretty complicated feeding routine. Holly has cared for other dogs with similar diets and managed meal times flawlessly. She kept in touch throughout Mabel's stay so I never worried. Holly's great!
Holly and her entire family were so nice to take Cosmo in. She sent pictures often, and Cosmo had a great time. I loved that Cosmo found a buddy in her teenage son. He came back tired and happy after my week away.
Murphy's stay couldn't have been better - Holly was exceptional! She updated us daily with photos & notes - we could see Murphy was well cared for while we were traveling. We could tell Murphy would have been very happy to move right in with Holly's family. Thank you so much Holly for your kindness!
Holly is awesome with dogs and really works at making your dog feel comfortable. She bought Lilly another toy when she tore one up and lost another one! She was tolerant of our dogs mistakes-digging and chewing, and managed them with grace. I highly recommend her.
As always Holly is a life saver for my family and our Tilde! She is always willing to work with us last min and by that I mean the day of! She is a great communicator and some we will always request every time we need someone to watch Tilde!

Thank you Holly!
super easy to work with and easy going. thanks holly!
Cutie had a great time playing with Gracie and we loved the pictures Holly sent us. We appreciated Holly's attention to detail and Cutie is looking forward to her next stay!
Holly is a fantastic host. She went above and beyond to keep me posted on how my dog was doing through her stay, sending a couple of pictures a day. Knowing my dog was happy let me enjoy my time away. Holly also made pill pockets for my dog because I hadn't packed enough - she even sent her home with a few more so I wouldn't have to go to the store. Thank you, Holly!
With our recent move to the area we had been having trouble finding somewhere that Tanner was comfortable staying. We are so pleased that we found Holly and her family. The care he received was excellent. The photos she sent us everyday helped our family know that he was handling his stay well. When we picked him up she really seemed to have enjoyed having him. I would highly recommend Holly.
We loved our experience with Holly and her family. She was sweet when we first met her on the meet-n-greet, so when we actually dropped our dog off she ran into her house! We were happy to see her so comfortable already! We loved the photo updates and how quickly Holly was at responding to all of our messages. We will definitely use her again for our next vacation, thanks Holly and family!
Everything was great! I felt like Holly really enjoyed having the dogs around and that Bella was well cared for while we were gone
Holly done an excellent job. My dog is a little difficult to be with. She overcame this situation and I am very pleased with the result. Thank You. Marius M.
Holly and family were great. We e-mailed a request to 3 hosts advertised on DogVacay after dog care plans fell through and Holly immediately responded. We met and 2 days later headed to Alaska. I never once worried about our pup. Photos and updates were e-mailed regularly and it felt good knowing she was in a home and getting so much attention.
Holly was very friendly and took good care of our dog. She e-mailed us pictures every day, and our dog seemed quite happy. We would recommend Holly .
Holly and her family are amazing! Our dog Mae is very shy at first and easily warmed up to this sweet family. We left her for 17 days, which is by far the longest we had left her with a sitter and when we picked her up she had already become part of their family. Holly always sends photos too, which is a nice perk to see your dog while you are away.

We highly recommend Holly and her family to anyone who needs a dog sitter. Just moving here recently without knowing anyone, it was nice to find a reliable, friendly host who is so caring.

We will continue to use Holly as a sitter for future vacation stays for Mae. We could not have found a better family to watch Mae while we are out of town.

Thank you Holly!!
Our little Yorkie, Penny, stayed with Holly and her family for five days. Penny looked and smelled amazing when we picked her up. We could tell immediately that she had been well cared for during her stay.
Holly sent us several pictures and messages while Penny was in her care. We will certainly have Penny vacation with Holly again and highly recommend her.
Her daughter was very sweet with Penny also.
All in all it was a wonderful experience for us all.

Thanks so much! Penny sends regards!!!
I'm so happy I discovered Holly on dogvacay. She is concerned about your dog's routine and her family members are there to interact with the dogs too. My dog came home and crashed for the day after only one overnighter so there must have been plenty of stimulation. Holly sent a few pics of Gwen outside with her own dog and also having some quiet time. I hope Holly is available the next time I need a dogsitter. She would be my first choice.
Mabel, my six-year old Cavalier Spaniel, had a lovely 2+ week stay with Holly and her family. Holly took great care of her and sent me frequent updates. I didn't worry about Mabel the entire time I was away, which is rare. I highly recommend Holly.
I appreciated Holly's flexibility with my schedule. The booking and drop off/pick up was easy. Big yard and home for pups, and looked like a comfy stay with a loving family.
Reliable. Thx
Reliable. ... Thank you
Holly & her family were wonderful caring hosts for our two small dogs, she sent pics of our little ones daily which gave me great peace of mind knowing our babies were enjoying their stay. It was so nice to be away and not have to worry because they were with a nice family who cared. Thank you!
