About Abbie

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Small Doggie Sitting (25 lbs and under) in our Home in Cloverdale. Your fur babies will be treated as part of our family.
We have a fenced in back yard so lots of room to play. Never in a kennel unless they sleep in one at night. I am home most of the time so they are not left alone for long periods. They will get lots of hugs and kisses and laptime.
If you know you are going avoid disappointment...please contact me as much ahead of time as possible to set up a time to bring your baby for a visit so he/she can interview me!
I won't accept any doggie without meeting he/she first as I'm sure you as the owner will want to meet me before you leave your baby in my care. All doggies must be neutered/spayed and house trained. House trained includes no longer using pee pads if that's the way your doggie was trained.
My fee is $30 USD per day. (overnight)
Note added January 9/2017:
For the time being while our CDN dollar is struggling I will offer $25 per day USD. We will discuss this when you come for your meet and greet with me. After we've met should you wish to book with me I will send you an invoice through dogvacay with the reduced price which you may pay with your charge card.
I also offer daycare at $22.00 per day.
I have looked after doggies for 18 years plus. The photos are of just a few of the many little ones I have looked after.
On November 18, 2014 my last little Shih Tzu, Joey, crossed over the rainbow bridge to join his brother Jesse. He was 14 years old. At this time I do not have a doggie of my own.
Love is a Four Legged Word!

We are entirely pleased that we found Abbie through DogVacay. Pookie had a wonderful time, as did we knowing that he was safe in her hands at her lovely home. She kept us updated with emails and photos so that we were not at all anxious about his well being.
In fact, he had such a good time that we wondered if he would actually want to leave Abbie.
Oh my word. Abbie is amazing! We are so happy to have found her! She is amazing at keeping in contact to let us know how our little Jake is doing and sends pictures that show just how at home he is at her home. I have never been as comfortable leaving Jake anywhere! She even hand feeds him when he is turning his nose up at food on the first day! Thanks so much Abbie for taking such loving care of our little guy! You're awesome!
Once again- Abbie was phenomenal. I'm pretty sure there is no one else I would trust my Boone with more than her. He spent a week with her and came home and moped around the next 3 days because he missed her and her family. THANK YOU Abbie for all you do- you're a gem. Started as my Booney boy's host and now I consider you a friend.
We just returned from a trip and Abbie looked after our dog Lily. We wanted Lily to be cuddled and loved in a home rather than a kennel, and we were so pleased to find Abbie. We visited her at her home before making our reservation, and we felt totally comfortable leaving Lily with her. We appreciated the emails and photos Abbie sent us while we were away. We won't hesitate to leave Lily with her again - in fact I'm sure Lily would love to go back and have fun at Abbie's house again!
Absolutely wonderful care! Abbie is amazing and so warm and kind. I felt so comfortable leaving our little Midge in her care. It was great to receive photos during our trip and notes from Abbie about how she was doing. I would very highly recommend Abbie!!
We have been meaning to write a review for some time now. Abbie has taken care of our little Havanese several times and we are leaving our dog with her again this summer. He's a little bit of work as he needs to be groomed every day. Abbie did this and more. Our dog got the very best of care and attention. We recommend her without reservation.
Thanks Abbie,
Tara and John
If you are looking for a great dog sitter, you have clicked on the right profile!! Abbie is an amazing dog sitter. Abbie went above and beyond for our dog. We were scheduled to leave for Europe on a Sunday and but the Wednesday before we left our dog was diagnosed with ulcerations on his eyes by our vet, which required around the clock care. It meant getting up in the middle of the night two or three times putting different drops and other medications. Our dog also required visits to the vet twice while we were away. Abbie, did it all, she made sure the medications were given and vet visits attended. Our dog's eyes healed and if it was not for her I do not know what we would have done. Abbie would email us updates with info from the vets and this helped as we were so far away from our little pup! So if you are looking for someone who cares for your dog like it is their own, then look no further. This recommendation is of the highest degree. Thank you Abbie!

We have relied on Abby to care for our little Dachshund over half a dozen times now and we have never been let down. Abby is caring and warm and beeky loves going to her home, which is clean and orderly with a lovely fenced in yard to play in. Thank you Abby for being so great.
Abbie was SO amazing. From our first email on, she was so organized and kind. My dog truly went on a vacation- he LOVED spending time at Abbie's house, and he can be a tough customer! Boone is sometimes shy and can have some anxiety when seperated from us. By the time I picked him up- he didn't want to go! Abbie was so kind and kept me updated multiple times a day (I missed my baby!) and took care of Boone just like we do at home (probably better!). She's the BEST!!
Abbie was very good right from the start. She responded quickly to my emails and was polite and understanding. She has a beautiful home and her resident puppy is very laid back. During my puppy's two week stay I received several (maybe 5 or more) updates on how my dog was doing. This was very comforting. She seemed genuinely concerned about the care of my dog and how distraught I was about leaving her. On the day I picked her up I came in to her house to see my puppy sleeping on her husband's lap while he was taking a nap. My dog was obviously in good hands (and loved) by all of the people in the house. I would definitely recommend Abbie.
We are so happy that we found Abbie on DogVacay. She took very good care of Max and kept us updated daily with emails and photos. We would definitely use Abbie next time we need dog care. Bal, Justine & Max
We couldn't have found a more warm and caring person to look after our Westie, Wyatt, while we were on holidays. From the moment we met Abbie and Joey we felt like they were the right choice for us. Wyatt seemed to feel right at home. This was even more confirmed by the regular email updates from Abbie during our vacation. It made us feel so confident that he was enjoying himself seeing his big smiles in the photos. He also came home with some new tricks that he didn't know prior to his stay. We will definately send Wyatt to stay with Abbie and Joey again.

Thanks to you both!!!

Jenny, Brad, Sophie & Wyatt
Thank you very much Abbie for taking such great care of our baby :).. Percy really enjoyed his Christmas with you and your family.. We know Percy was taken care of like we do here at home :) Would definately have you take care of Percy again :) Jill, Ken and Percy
Abbie is an excellent and trustworthy host.

We were looking for a good spot to leave our little mini dachshund over the holidays. We had looked at bigger doggie sitting establishments and were worried that she wouldn't get the personal care we were seeking. We found Abbie and went for a visit at her place, and were immediately convinced that we had found the right host! Abbie is warm and caring, and has a wonderful home and enclosed yard for small pets. We did a two-day trial before the holidays to ensure that our dog would settle in okay at the host's home. The visit went off without a hitch and our pet was very excited to go back for the holidays!

During our time away, Abbie sent us pictures and updates about our pet on a regular basis. We couldn't be happier with the service we received, and will definitely be using Abbie again in the future.
Abbie is a wonderful host and I would recommend her to anyone. It is such a relief knowing that your pet is in such good hands.
What a great experience! This was our first time using a pet sitter and meeting Abbie put my mind at ease. I immediately felt comfortable in her home and so did my dog Charli. Abbie took great care of Charli, going over and above to make her stay a special one. We loved reading Abbie's emails with updates and pictures. Charli had a wonderful dog vacay and we will use Abbie again and again!
This was the first time we used a pet sitter and were VERY happy our dog Max chose Abbie. He loved is vacation so much he didn't want to leave. We appreciated the emailed updates with photo's. Would definitely book again.
