About Desiree

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello. I am a loving dog mom who works part time as a dog walker and sitter. I have a 7 year old German Shepherd/Chihuahua mix who loves sharing his mommy.

I am available to walk your dog, feed your dog and sit at your place.

I have been in the dog business for almost four years and I've worked with many breeds, temperaments, ages, ailments, etc. I love and treat all your dogs as I would treat my own baby.

So I wish I could be one of those glowing reviews but unfortunately, can't. My experience with Desiree was as follows: after a very responsive email chain of inquiries and information exchange regarding my dog, I instant booked with Desiree for a weekend of dog sitting. After my husband dropped off our little guy, about two hours later, Desiree called and said she was freaking out because my dog kept barking and urinating in her house. Mind you, this dog is a senior who is totally house broken and has NEVER done such a thing. I calmly asked if he was fed, as it was 7pm and he usually gets fed by 5. Maybe that was why he was acting oddly? Trying to get attention? She said my dog ate some of her dogs food so she didn't feed him a proper supper. Okay. Clue one - feed the dog. He might settle down after. Then, after I advised her to try walking him for a bit, we hung up and she agreed to give it a bit more time. Shortly after, say another hour later, Desiree showed up at my house and dropped my dog off. Yes, he seemed to have trouble adjusting to her (for unknown reasons) but I've never had a problem boarding him with other DogVacay hosts and never had a complaint, let alone a total melt down from a host and a return of my pet. The whole encounter was just disappointing and shocking, on both ends I believe. Fortunately, Dog Vacay made everything right but the experience left a distinctly sour taste in my mouth and I am going to stick to my usual hosts instead.

Desiree was amazing! I really think our dog would have loved to have stayed longer. She gave us frequent updates and pics of his stay and was easy to deal with when it came to drop off and pick up. We will definitely use her again!
Desiree was super sweet and super communicative, and took Our pup over the busy holiday! Would book her again any time, especially since our dog now loves her! Thank you Desiree!
