Faith is amazing with dogs! Very dependable and can handle even walking multiple BIG DOGS! :) She is also very professional. I give her my highest recommendation.

Faith was very enthusiastic about taking care of our goldendoodle. She also responded quickly to our messages. She let our dog get used to her home before introducing her to the other dogs that were there. Our dog had the chance to play in the back yard with the other dogs, go on walks and rest in her home. We were very pleased with our experience! Thank you!

Faith was amazing from the moment we met. She really showed great concern and care for my Gronk and was very descriptive in her messages to me while I was away. By far, she has been the best pet sitter I’ve had. I will continue to keep bringing Gronk to her on all my future trips. He really seemed to like her and she just took such good care of him. Gave me a peace of mind knowing he was in good hands. I am truly a satisfied and happy client! I will be recommending her to all my fellow pet parents.

Faith was amazing! She was very accommodating to our dogs special diet. She also kept us up to date on Mabel's stay with daily pictures and texts. We will definitely be using Faith in the future for all our pet sitting needs!
Faith was just awesome! Rico is playful, yet very shy. He immediately felt at home thanks to Faith's warm welcome. She had other dogs there and was great with introducing them slowly to Rico. I loved the service and felt more than comfortable leaving him. I enjoyed Faith's updates of Rico's stay with pictures. Made leaving him much much easier knowing he was in a loving home.

Could not have asked for a better experience going with Faith and her family. From the warm greeting to the daily updates, she had me resting easy knowing my dog Moxie was well taken care of. Top marks all around. Routine walks and play time. She was very flexible and accommodating to a few last minute schedule changes as well. I will be using her again and suggest you do the same!

Faith was a wonderful host. She sent pictures & updates everyday during the week. I would highly recommend her. I never worried about Casey.
I left my 2year old lab,Toby, with Faith on Christmas eve and I am so happy I found her.
Faith really cares about the happiness and well being of the dogs she cares for. She is very responsive and accommodating. I would not hesitate to leave Toby with Faith and would highly recommend her.

Great experience and I would highly recommend Faith to my family and friends to take care of their dog.
Faith sent pictures of Cooper everyday which showed he was getting the love and attention that he needs. I could tell when I picked him up that he had a wonderful time.

Can't say enough about how fantastic an experience it was. Both Gypsy and I received a warm welcome and throughout the stay I got lots of picture and video updates of how much fun she was having. It was perfect! 100% I'd want her there again next time I'm away.

Faith is awesome! I couldn't have asked for someone to take better care of our two Boxers. I contacted Faith on DogVacay and she responded within minutes. We chatted briefly about our dogs, how long we needed to have her watch them, etc. Everything sounded great so we setup a meet and greet. Faith was really well prepared for the meet and it was clear she was really good with the dogs. She had our boys meet hers outside first before letting them inside, really great way to do it. She has great dogs and her family was really good with them too. Everyone got along well and Faith was really thorough to get any information that might be needed for their stay (allergies etc).

We decided it was a go and a week later we dropped our boys off for their 6 day stay over Thanksgiving. Faith was very accommodating for drop off and pick up and made the whole stay very easy. She took them for nice walks and let them play in the back yard, they loved the yard! We got lots of pictures and updates throughout the whole stay, which we loved, to let us know they were doing great. We'll definitely have our boys stay with Faith again, so much better than a Kennel!

Faith is a great host! She provided a warm and loving environment for my fur baby Lady. This was my first time being away without Lady, so i was pretty nervous. After meeting Faith and her fur babies, I knew Lady would be just fine. I think I missed her more than she missed me! I received pics and updates on Lady's stay, it made me feel happy to see she was having fun. I will definitely be contacting Faith for the next time I'm away.

Our 8 month old terrorist (oops, dog) Diesel had the pleasure of two GREAT visits with Faith.

Communicating with Faith was super easy and quick. She responded very quickly to my initial and subsequent email's and set up a call to discuss our situation. She asked great questions and it was quickly apparent to me that she knew how to handle dogs.

Arriving at her home for the Meet and Greet we met Faith, one of her dogs and her two boys. Our puppy, is a stray with no manners and no previous training who we rescued. We have been busy training him but he quickly showed that while his behavior at home had become pretty well controlled, he clearly was not ready for two young children. He ran through Faith's house like a whirling dervish, chasing her boys and bouncing from couch to floor to chair to wall and back all the while trying to lick her kids.

While my wife and I stood there mortified, Faith remained amazingly calm, explaining to the boys how to behave to help, while at the same time calling Diesel to her and getting him to stop, sit and refocus. While Diesel's "good" behavior didn't last long, Faith never lost her cool, again and again calming Diesel down, assuring my wife and I that all was well and talking to her boys. She was amazing.

Diesel visited Faith again for a 4 hour stay last Friday. He happily played with her dogs, took a long walk, and played ball in the yard with Faith. He came home tired and happy; a great afternoon.

I cannot say enough positive things about how well our dog was treated while we were away. Our Brady is almost 12 years old and becoming more anxious as he gets older. As he gets anxious we do too and leaving him for a few days felt gut-wrenching until we met Faith. Faith requested to drive to our home to meet Brady on his own turf and that suggestion truly helped Brady when he was dropped off at her home. Some of Brady’s quirks: he can’t be left alone; he sometimes stops eating and severely shakes prior and during thunderstorms. Faith took him on even with all this information provided to her. Faith sent a few pictures a day and we could tell by looking at those pictures that Brady was happy and feeling safe. He also had the benefit of making friends with Faith’s 2 dogs. Faith is active and walked all three dogs with ease and care. When I picked Brady up it was as if he had decided to stay! He was in great spirits, shape and was content. We could not have asked for a better experience and will be requesting Faith whenever we need Brady to be watched. This was the first time ever that we felt good about where he was and that knowledge allowed us to truly enjoy our time away without worry. If there is a desire to speak to me regarding our experience please email or call and I would be happy to talk about this wonderful wonderful experience!!
