About Ashley

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I work from home so I am here to play, walk and snuggle your furbaby!

We truly believe when your dog is with us he/she is on vacation. We send pictures and updates regularly.

We have a very large, fully fenced backyard and dogs have easy access through our doggy door. When the weather is nice we leave the backdoor open so they can come and go as they please.

We do a lot of playing in the yard and dogs are free to surf the couch or snuggle with us at bedtime.

We have two kids ages 7 and 10. They are fantastic with dogs. If you are unsure of how your dog behaves around kids *let's not risk it.* We are happy to do a 'Meet and Greet' anytime to ensure everyone is comfortable.

We love Dog Park, taking walks around Crown Hill Lake and often go for neighborhood strolls and car rides to mix it up!

We have everything your dog will need or want. If your pup is staying overnight please bring food and a few treats. Feel free to bring a favorite toy, blanket and dog bed if you would like.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask! We *strive* to meet all of you and your dogs needs. Your recommendations and feedback really mean a lot to us!

With Gratitude,
Ashley & Family

We had a fantastic experience with Ashley. Our lab seemed very happy and was well taken care of. Ashley sent lots of photos and kept us updated while we were away. We look forward to having her watch our pup again!
Ashley was a wonderful host for our Rocco! He loved the stay and came home exhausted from all the fun. :) Thanks
Ashley and her family are AWESOME!!! She took such good care of our pup and sent us the most adorable pics of his daily adventures. We highly recommend Ashley - our dog had a blast there and she was wonderful to work with!
Perfect home for a great stay for CJ. We love looking at the photo updates to see how he was doing. Ashley and her whole family are now CJ's home away from home! Thank you Ashley!
Ashley was very professional and took care of my baby like she would her own! Kaiyan was very happy when I got home :) Thank you very much!
Ashley was amazing! She helped me out in a pinch and took a last minute reservation for my Bilbo over the weekend. Her home is perfect for pups and Bilbo loved it and her dog, Levi, instantly. Ashley sent me pictures all weekend to let me know that Bilbo was doing well, which I really appreciated. When I picked Bilbo up, I could tell that he had made himself at home and had enjoyed his time with Ashley and her family. Thanks again!
Our dog was well loved and very happy! Ashley and her family were great to work with! We loved the photos of our happy pup while we were away!
Ashley took amazing care of our almost-10 year old bulldog. He is a unique character, and my husband is really attached to him, and Ashley sent regular updates which was huge for us, and he was really happy with her. We will definitely be a return customer, if she is ok with Boug's snoring! :-)
Ashley and her family were wonderful to host our dog, Norm, in their pet-friendly, welcoming environment. She updated my husband and me with pictures throughout the day, was quick to respond, and flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. Norm slept like a baby when we got home, and I'm sure he was dreaming of all the fun he had with Ashley, her family, and Levi! We have already booked our next day of fun!
well, Dodger didn't start out as the best house guest.... lifted his leg on her dining room table!! SO embarrassed. But, Ashley is so calm and low key and comfortable with dogs (and their owners) that it was quickly forgotten (except for this review). Dodger is a 95# almost 2yr old lab with all the energy that goes along with it. He had a great time with their family and loved playing with the other dog. I trust Ashley and her family with Dodger and am already looking to see if she's available our next weekend away.
We think that our beloved dog, Brodie, had more fun on his "vacation" to Ashley's house than we did on ours! Ashley's house is a dog heaven with lots of room to run inside and a big fenced yard out back. And a very friendly doggie playmate, Levi!

Since Brodie loves kids, we figured he'd hit it off with her son, and I guess he really did!

We were just gone for two days, but Ashley sent a video and several pics while we were away. Every photo was Brodie looking very happy and very engaged in play with her or her kids. We could just relax and enjoy our time, knowing he was in such good hands!

By the way, we stopped in for a meet-n-greet a few days before our trip. Brodie had so much fun there, that when we returned to drop him off, he howled excitedly!

Truly a 5-star experience!!!!
Ashley is a true dog lover. I so appreciate her patience and the loving care she showed Faira. Next time we leave town, I hope Ashley is available. Highly recommended!
Ashley was an awesome host to our dog Samantha! She clearly gave Sam lots of love and affection and she sent us plenty of pictures of Sam while we were away. We had arranged a meet and greet a week or so before our reservation and Sammi got to meet her dog Levi so I knew they would get along. She has a great backyard with tons of toys for the dogs. When we came to pick Sam up, she wasn't in any hurry to leave because she had obviously had a great time. We will definitely book again with Ashley next time we need someone to watch Samantha.
Ashley was so awesome with my 9 month old retriever! She was definitely treated like one of the family. I highly recommend Ashley and Dog Vacay over traditional boarding. Thanks for taking such good care of my pup!!
This was our first time using DogVacay and we had an awesome experience with Ashley! Communication was great and we got regular updates about how our pup was doing. Ashley is clearly passionate about dogs and our dog was very well taken care of and loved! The home was well set up to care for dogs and it was clear that our dog got plenty of exercise and attention. We will definitely use this host again! Couldn't have asked for a better host!
Overall awesome experience! Ashley has a house with a big yard that our dog Layla loved running around in. She also has 2 kids and a dog of her own which Layla clearly had a great time playing with. Ashley and her kids had nothing but good things to say about our dog and it's clear that everyone in that household are genuine dog lovers, judging by how sad they were to see her go at the end of the stay. I should also note that Ashley was very good about posting regular photo/video updates through the app. Would definitely book another stay with this family!
