About Sadie

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm retired living in an apartment.
I have an English Bulldog, which is very friendly and socialable. I have plenty of toys for you and I will play with you. I'll take you for your morning and evening walks and will take you to the Doggie park, weather/owner premitting. After the doggie park is wash up time then relaxing time. I have Wellnes food but you can bring your own, you will get treats such as fresh apples and carrots. You will get plenty of love so that your stay here is as comfortable as possible and your transition is seamless. I prefer small to medium size dogs

Sadie was AWESOME! she accepted my last minute request and took great care of Rico... Rico stayed with Sadie in the past, so when we got to her building he remembered the location and started wagging his tail uncontrollably and was very excited to be back! I definitely recommend her services, she is amazing! Thanks again

Sadie is a true dog lover. My golden lab feels right at home with Sadie and her family and I trust her with my puppy completely. I would recommend her cautiously only because I would always love her to be available for my dog. :-)
Hi Sadie is attentive and caring. My dog is like one of my kids, I only want her with someone who has her best interest in mind. I believe I have that with the care Sadie delivers!
Sadie took care of my Daughter's pug for 7 days. She sent pictures to reassure her that all was well. Our pug Bahama came back very happy and healthy. We never worried one second about the care. Excellent!!!!
Sadie was AMAZING!! Ajax had a great time she sent me pictures through the time he spent with her.
Sadie is such a gem and a true friend to the dogs. She really really came through for me this time. A last minute call and she accepted and although just for a short stay it was very important. My babies are sooo used to her now that they don't even say goodbye to me anymore. A bee-line for the door and they are in and about their business whatever that may be. They are genuinely happy to go with her and begin making noises of excitement when they realize they are in her neighborhood. I would be totally lost without her.

If you read my previous reviews you'll understand how simple this statement is: " As always last minute: Sadie comes through with flying colors and MORE". My babies are soooo smitten with her and her family and comfortable like home. I couldn't ask for more and they will be back in just a few days for another last minute stay that she graciously accepted. She's family!!!

I'm a little late giving this review. Nothing at all to do with Sadie, just me. This has been the longest stay that my 2 furbabies has had away from me. And as always she has deliverd with flying colors! I don't say this lightly but I do say this with hesitation because as it is now she books up so quickly and I'd really like to have her open to me at my whim; regretfully that's not the case. My babies are really taking a liking to her and they always come back in the same condition I left them-well almost, she manages to spoil them. I absolutely adore her and love her for treating my babies as her own. Allowing them to take up space in her bed as well. That's what they are used to at home. She is more than a sitter but a protector and oh so knowledgeable. If you have a hesitation, don't because she won't disappoint. I happened to be running late to pick them up as I ran into traffic from my vacation all the way back home and she was more than accommodating and understanding even at the late hour. She truly is a GEM! If it were not for her I don't think that I would use dogvacay at all - even considering someone else on their list doesn't even cross my mind!!!

Multiple times using Sadie's services and will continue to go to Sadie for our pup's vacay needs.
Sadie is just the best my baby has stayed so many times with her I think I'm running out of ways to describe the wonderful care Sadie provides.
Leo had a great time with Sadie! She even let him sleep in her bed. I would rebook with her for sure!
Sadie was everything I was hoping for in a dog sitter and much more! Before leaving our Pomeranian, we had a meet and greet. My dog is 8 years old and has never been left with anyone other than close family/friends. He familiarized himself with the home during the meet and greet and was happy to be back for his stay. We received pictures during his stay and quick check ins. I can't wait for him to visit again!

Sadie was extremely reliable and kind. It was very clear that her and her family love dogs. When I picked up Benji he seemed very happy and well taken care of. I will definitely be working with Sadie again in the future when I am out of town.
We had another great experience with Sadie. She was flexible about pick-up/drop-off times and easy to work with, as with our last visit. Lily came back happy and tired again. Thanks Sadie!!
Our first experience with Sadie was great from beginning to end! We met with her and her personal dogs in her home. We were impressed by her knowledge of dogs and her capable handling of the dogs "meeting" each other. Lily stayed with Sadie for a full week and came back to us exhausted and happy. Sadie was great about communication and sent us pictures of Lily enjoying herself every other day. We ended up booking another weekend right away!

Sadie is the best. I've been so reluctant to write a review because I know once it's read everyone will want to use her services and where would that leave me? She has taken such great care of my dog each time. She is a God send. She is very knowledgeable about every aspect of dogs in general and yours in particular, No matter what the breed. We all love our pets and you won't have to worry when they are in her care.I have used other dog sitting services but they can't compare to Sadie. If ever there is an award for a sitter Sadie would win hands down !
Read More...
She kindly treated my dog as hers! definitely I'll ask her again if boarding is needed.
The reviews don't lie. Sadie's a seasoned professional and exudes a love for dogs. We didn't get a chance to do a meet and greet since I'm not in the area, but I felt totally comfortable with my choice. Sadie was super accommodating with our late arrival and noticed and treated a small bruise on one of my dogs. She communicates everything about your dog's stay and send pics of your pups at play and rest. She has a great space indoors and outside for the dogs and treats her four- and two-legged customers like family. Would definitely recommend and use again!!!! Thanks, Sadie!

Sadie is the best I could ask for. I've left my babies with them several times and I continue to look to her whenever I'm in need. She's been so gracious to take them in times of emergencies and that has meant the world to me. She's an A Class sitter.

Sadie is the best sitter you can possibly find here.
Sadie is the best and welcoming to all dogs! Jackson loved staying with her and I'm sure I will be booking with her the next time I go on vacation. Thank you, Sadie!!
This was our first time using a DogSitter and we had the best experience ever!!! It was a last minute decision to even consider a dog sitter as an option and thank GOD we came across DogVacay & Sadie's page first! From reading others reviews, I felt it was only right to give Sadie the opportunity and she exceeded every expectation we had!

If Dogvacay had 100 stars, I would have to find a way to give Ms. Sadie a 101 stars! She is Excellent with a capital E! Our Dog had the best time ever while we were away. Sadie was very informative, sending us pictures every other day. She also made sure MILK was active throughout the day, so when we came back in town, All MILK did was sleep all night! We can't thank you enough for that! :) LOL

To see Sadie's passion for the well being of our dog and her's as well was amazing. We could go on for days talking nothing but great things about Sadie. The best compliment you can ever give someone in business is a referral and we surely wont hesitate to give Sadie a referral anytime! In fact, if you are reading this and you need a sitter, you better stop reading right now and see if Sadie is available because she's your best option without a doubt! :)

Thank you again Sadie for taking such great care of MILK, she loves you now and I think she misses you LOL If there's an award, you deserve it!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS

Experience was great. Jon Snow loved it. He came home extremly tired which meant he was playing ALL DAY.
Sadie is very much a dog lover and accommodating. We are lucky she lives in our area and now have back up care for our boy. He’s rarely been around other dog but he did well his first night away. Thank you Sadie… we will see you soon!
This was my second time using Sadie; although it feels like I've know her for years and she's kept my babies many times before. This was a last minute emergency and I contacted her one day before and THANKFULLY she was available and welcomed them with open arms even though she wasn't feeling well! I was pleasantly surprised when my babies began to recognize where we were. They greeted Sadie with open wags and I knew once again; they were going to be okay! She's like the female dog whisperer! She knows exactly how to care for dogs and ALL of their temperaments. More importantly; she knows how to deal with the parents and all of theirs as well!! I really don't know what I would do without Sadie - she is such a Gem! I'm pretty selfish and wouldn't mind if I was able to keep her all to myself. I told her that ever since our first stay that I missed her and wanted to come back to visit. That's how she will leave you feeling. This second time around was such a breeze for me to leave them and I wasn't worried one bit and actually found myself not mentioning them as much as I usually do when I'm away from them! Sadie, I absolutely adore you and thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!

I felt my puppy was in good hands with Sadie, total peace of mind.
I was very anxious about leaving a persnickety (and sometimes snappy) senior dog with "strangers" ... but Holiday took to Sadie right away. It was obvious on our first meeting that Sadie understood dogs, including the needs of a my senior diva. Holiday was so at home with Sadie and her family that when I went to pick her up, I was a little concerned Holiday didn't want to leave! I would definitely book Sadie again. A+++

Sadie is wonderful! My lab, Anouk, was well taken care of and got a chance to acclimate herself around other dogs with ease. Anouk's days were full of activities and updates with adorable photos put me at ease while making me miss my puppy even more. I couldn't be more excited that my puppy has found a vacation home with a great family and now has puppy friends. Your dog will be happy staying with Sadie!

My dogs simply LOVE going there.... I was even a little heart broken to see they didnt want to leave went I picked them up...Sadie is so nice. I never stopped texting her and asking her how are my pups doing . she patiently took to time to asnwer and send me pics and even took them for a run to the doggie park. This is I think the fifth time the stay with her and I wouldnt chamge her for anything

love Sadie!
Third time using Sadie & wonderful as always!
Had to extend the days my baby boy Hashy had to stay with Sadie and on a extremely short notice she was able to accept and even go buy wet food for him since i only provided the amount of wet food for the days he was previously staying. I am so very grateful for this and I had peace of mind knowing that he was well taken care of in a place were they provide more than care but love and extra attention. Thank You so very much.
Read More...
Left my beautiful Hashy for the first time with a sitter and I was very nervous about the experience. Have to say that it was very pleasant. My baby boy was very well taken care of and I left with a sense of calmness after meeting with Sadie. Received pictures almost on a daily basis and Hashy looked as happy as always i'm confident on saying he was probably more happy than at home since he was spending some cuddling time with other dogs which he is the only dog at home and Sadie was giving him extra attention and treats. Thank You so very much for the love and care for my baby. I will recommend your services to anyone in need of a sitter because you were truly amazing.
Read More...
She is awesome, my dog, had seperation anxiety for a day, when he got home. She gave him tons of attention. I will recommend her anytime.
Sadie continues to be awesome. Not only is my doggie extremely happy, she has become easier to walk from being with Sadie and Sadie cured
an infection that probably would have cost me over $100 plus much time if I took her to a Vet. I fully approved what Sadie proposed to give her, and it worked quickly.

Sadie is nothing short of amazing! She takes better care of my dogs than I do (but doesn't make you feel bad about it)! I so appreciated the photos and texts updates. Also her dog Stormie is such a sweetheart and angel and a perfect companion. I could not recommend Sadie any higher. I had two dogs that she watched one is older and not wanting to eat as much. She cooked baby carrots and mashed this into her food and got her to eat! What a great trick. The other dog is much younger and hi energy and she was able to exercise her and have me useful tips for walking her with a harness which works so much better than the previous collar I was using. I feel like taking a vacay just so that the dogs get a vacay too!

Second time using Sadie's services and we will use them again. Thanks Sadie - your the best!
At the time of this review, Sadie has over 100 positive reviews ! this is far more than any other sitter in this area. That should speak for itself. She is accommodating to your scheduling, and takes caring for your pooch very seriously.
Loving , caring and responsable as usual. Outstanting service
This was our second time using Dogvacay and we decided to meet up with Sadie from the get go she has been very nice and open. she invited us in her home showed us around where my dog would be staying and sleeping. I was little worried about leaving my dog cause It didn't go so well the first time I left LILO with some other doggy sitter anyways so yesterday we picked LILO up and right away I could tell that she had a blast. she looked happy she looked clean she smelled so good Sadie is the only person I would leave LILO to in the future. Our flight had delayed and Sadie was understanding about the situation. Sadie kept us updated with pictures. Overall I was very happy with the service. Thank you Sadie. Lillo misses you and her friends.

This was my first time ever using DogVacay and Sadie. I've always used boarding facilities although never to my liking. I'm an OCD parent and I completely dot my i's and cross my t's when it comes to my babies!! Needless to say, I was a bag of nerves because nobody can do it like mommy can. I met with Sadie for our meet n greet and that lasted a little over an hour. She takes her time to familiarize herself with your lovebugs and vice versa. I really think its for the parents. Sadie knows about dogs and knows what she is doing. Although feeling comfortable, I was still uneasy bcuz you have all the what if's that can happen. I left my babies with her a little over a week later for about 8 days. During that time she corresponded with me about every other day and it included pictures as well. I can't express to you how the pictures made me feel. To see them is PRICELESS! They looked comfortable and at ease and like they were having fun. When I returned they were in good shape, happy and healthy! Sadie answers any questions you may have and she is a dog lover and really cares for them. My dogs slept with her as they do with me and I was really concerned how they would spend their nights - they were cozy and comfy. My babies are a lot to handle because they are picky and finicky and prefer things a certain way. They are used to home life. sadie was able to accommodate all of their needs and she even washed their dog beds for me. Choose Sadie-you'll love her!

Once again we left Bosco with Sadie for an overnight stay and she was wonderful. We are very comfortable leaving Bosco with her and will continue to do so in the future.
Sadie is a wonderful person and truly knows her way with the pups! Our dog Sookie does not get to socialize with other dogs too often but Sadie was so welcoming and her bulldog was so so pleasant that by the end of Sookie's stay she was running & playing with the pack. We knew we made the right decision after the initial meet & greet with Sadie who understood my girlfriend's apprehension at leaving her pup with someone new. Sadie is an expert when it comes to dogs, I mean just look at all her 5 star reviews! We will definitely use Sadie's services again.

Very thankful to have found Sadie - someone we can trust with out furbaby, Kaiju :)
Great stay!
Will definitely be using Sadie again as Kaiju always enjoys his stay here and we feel very comfortable with Sadie watching him.
Another great experience for Kaiju (our dog)!
2nd stay with Sadie and my dog seemed to really enjoy herself, but she came home with some small sores on her face and paw, one of which has become infected. Then she slept for 2 straight days when she got home. She is getting to be older, so I guess she can't play with other dogs as easily as she used to and I'll have to be more cautious of that. However, I think there were a few too many/ aggressive dogs staying there. Not really the environment that was described on the profile anyways. She did seem to be very well fed and freshly bathed (which I wouldn't have expected for a 2 night stay), but the other dogs were just too much.

Sadie is marvelous. You could not ask for a better dog sitter. Dr. Michael Russell (Ph,D) NYS Licensed Psychologist
Sadie was great with Sami couldn't have ask for a better sitter. Although Sami is a handful she handled him like the pro that she is. Would definitely recommend and repeat. Thanks again Sadie
Sadie was amazing as always. Monster will be coming back soon!!
Sadie is just marvelous and better with my dog than professionq dog sitters.
Once again Bosco had a wonderful stay with Sadie. He was there for the weekend and it was obvious when we picked him up he was feeling very at home with Sadie. Sadie sent us pictures during the weekend of Bosco playing and knocked out on her couch. We have been very lucky to have found Sadie to watch Bosco when we are away.
Read More...
We had Bosco stay with Sadie just for the day. He had not stayed with Sadie for close to a year and he once again needed to get acclimated. Sadie and her son took the time to make Bosco comfortable before we left. They were very understanding of him being difficult and made us very comfortable that he would be okay. When we returned at the end of the day, Bosco was like a member of the family. I would recommend Sadie to anyone.
Read More...
Sadie is very low key and calm. I could see it in the photo she sent me. The dogs were in their beds and looked comfortable. They came home and continued on as if they never left. This tells me that they were cared for and had no bad times. I would call her again.
Read More...
Sadie was amazing!!!! We found her last minute and she was very accommodating. She sent pictures of Duchess so that we wouldn't worry. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Sadie took care of our 8 years old English Bulldog Monster for 12 nights. He could not be happier. She is really amazing and we will only use her for any future boarding.
Thank you Sadie!! Dallas loves how you spoil him :)
At first I was a little worried about leaving my Buster with someone he or I did not know but after we did a meet and greet I felt so muchmore comfortable. Sadie has a large clientel that constantly rebook with her which told me her client's are satisfied with her service. I was happy with the amount of dogs she books at one time 3-5 depending on the size, I felt like that was perfect for her size apartment, not too many dogs to look after but just enough to keep Buster fully occupied. While I was on vacation Sadie sent me a few pictures of Buster enjoying himself. She took them out to the dog park which Buster loves, she give the dogs carrots and other healthy treats. Any request you make of her in terms of feeding or walking times she keeps to. I was 100% happy with my experience with Sadie and I would definately recommend her. She is really caring and makes the pups feel at home. I think I have found a permanet sitter for Buster. I won't have to feel bad going on vacation and leaving Buster behind because I know he is having a Ball with Sadie and her gang.

Sadie is the best!!! tysm
thank you Sadie!! you are truly the best, Dallas loves the way you spoil him!
My dogs were happy with her. She is friendly and seems to really know about dogs plus the most important for me is that she seems to enjoy taking care of dogs. I felt comfortable with her since she came out to receive me and more inside her home. I left really confident feeling that I made a good choice leaving my doggies with her. I like that she sent me pictures of them and they seemed happy. I know my doggies. Actualy, they seemed as if they wanted to stay even though they were happy to see me. I give her 5 stars.

Sadie always treats my dog Nick as one of her own. He is always excited to go to her place, never afraid and is just as happy when I pick him up.
Sadie's the BEST. Hugs and licks to her dog Storm too!

This was Della's second stay while while we were away celebrating our 20th anniversary. She received her arthritis medication, great vegetable supplemented meals, plenty of playtime with her doggie buddy, and lots of affection from Sadie. We received photos on request, but we knew Dell was in great hands, so no worries. Della will definitely be back!
Read More...
Thank you Sadie!! you are truly the best sitter, we luv ya :)
I left my dog with Sadie for the first time and when I got back, he was enjoying himself so much that he wanted to stay a bit longer. I'll definitely be leaving him with her the next time I go away.
This is the third and the longest Dog Vacay experience Avery had with Sadie (2 weeks) but we didn't have to worry. We were confident that Avery will be taken good care of while we were away. She took care of Avery just like her own. Sadie took her to the park to play. She rewarded her with treats for good behavior and of course spoiling her here and there. Avery was loving every minute of her stay.
She sent us photos and updates on how Avery was doing during our trip so we were always informed. Now everytime we go on vacation or needed a sitter for Avery, we know we can rely on Sadie.
Thanks for everything Sadie! We love you!!

awesome every time :)
This is the first time our 10 month old 70 lb "puppy" was left away from us, naturally we were very nervous about the ordeal. But the minute we met Sadie, we knew our baby would be safe and happy! She has this calm energy around her which transpires to the dogs. Every dog around her is well behaved and gets along well. Harley was free to roam in Sadies house along with the other doggie friends, which made us go to our trip with a light heart knowing that she also is having fun. We got her back healthy and happy. We are glad that we found Sadie and would certainly use her services when in need!

Once again, Sadie was absolutely fantastic. This was the second time I used Sadie. She came to my rescue at the last minute when other accommodations for my dog worked out. My dog loves going to spend time with her and Storm. I received regular updates and definitely had piece of mind that they was in good hands. I will continue to use her again and again.
Read More...
Awesome like usual, she took the best care of my 2 babies, even with a very short notice. The BEST
Once again, Sadie is the BEST, my dogs love staying over...and I can tell they don't even want to leave. Her attention to my babies 5 stars like always.I'm already booking again not because I need to, but for my doggies to spend a super fun weekend with Storm and Sadie.

Fabulous! Morris came home completely happy and worn out from all the fun.
Sadie is by far a caring and lovable pet enthusiast and a down to earth person. All that and the support from her side kick and better half "STORM", Sadie is an extraordinary dog sitter. My Bully concurs. See you soon ladies............. Apollo
Once again Sadie took excellent care of our little Sudan. I was a little concerned being the first time we left her for an entire week, and she was in heat at that! When I got there she had another bulldog that wouldn't leave my dog alone at first but Sadie enticed them with a treat and got the dog to settle down. I was assured that Sudan would be closely supervised and protected, and I was not disappointed. I think my dog was actually missing Sadie's after we brought her home. She gets so much love there by Sadie and her son and son's girlfriend, plus Storm keeps her company when they run out for an errand. I have complete confidence that Sadie knows what she is doing with dogs. She knew when to calm Sudan down when she got in fight mode with the bull dog. I would recommend Sadie for all dogs big and small. Make a meet and greet if your concerned and be assured your dog will be in great hands.

Sadie was wonderful as always, treating Nick as her own.
Sadie is the best! She took care of my 2 bulldoggues for about a week. And I truly dont think it can get any better when it comes to a trustworthy,caring, loving and afordable doggie care. As soon as I got there for the meet and greet I was amaze of her leadership ( dog whisperer kinda thing lol) and yet her loving ,calm and kind personality.Leia and Pork Chops instantly loved her! Her home is spotless clean, her baby girl bulldog Storm is a total sweet heart. Playful, loving and sociable with all the other doggies. Im usually a little stressed and anxious when im away an far from my hairy kids and Sadie was so caring keeping me updated everyday with videos, texts and pics of my dogs eating, playing with Storm or her family, sleeping..even in her own bed! They ran freely trough the house and got walks twice a day.They had a total blast and I feel safe and confident they were in the best hands. When I picked them up they didnt even want to leave. Totatly reccomend her and I really have to mention that this is my first experience with dog vacay but in the past i've tried EVERYTHING from the value vets office overnight stay were they crate them endless hours to the most expensive dog boarding hotel in westchester ny were they wont even pet your dog without money on front, special reason why im so grateful I've found Sadie and I would never go anywhere else but her.

Sadie was great as always!
Puppy almost didn't want to leave! Thanks, Sadie!
As usual Sadie was awesome. Jack had 3 amazing weeks with her and her family. It was obvious how much love and care Jack received. I am so thankful I was able to find such a great caregiver for my baby. Hands down I would recommend Sadie to anyone.
Outstanding
Sadie was a wonderful host. She sent us pictures and even brushed our dog! We appreciate everything she did for our fur-ball while we were away. We'll definitely be using her again :)
Sadie was an excellent host for my 2 puppies. She even sent a picture of them everyday! She was very understanding and patient with them . I couldn't have asked for a better host. My puppies were so calm and at ease when I went to pick them up I could tell that they had really enjoyed their stay. Thank you Sadie! Will definitely be back.

As usual Sadie was great! Jack had a weekend filled with fun and love... He's getting ready for 3 full weeks with Sadie soon, and I know he's very excited about it
Love Sadie!
Sadie was AWESOME with my dog Nick. She treated him like her own, even paying special attention to him during and after walks. I HIGHLY recommend Sadie for your dog vacay needs and plan on using her in the future without hesitation.
TYSM!! know he's n good hands with you
Hi Sadie Once again Dallas had an awesome time !! Thank you for taking such good care of him
As always Sadie V. was fabulous! This was for four days with other dogs, and I worry because Della can be grouchy. The photos I received of Della with the other dogs were great! She was happy, well cared for and received her arthritis meds.

When Della was returned to me, she looked like she was on vacation too! Sadie is wonderful!

I was very pleased with Sadie. My dog, Cody, was happy and very excited when I picked him up. He enjoyed his stay with Sadie; she was very attentive to his needs and was very interactive with all the dogs. I would not hesitate to call upon her services in the future.

This was my first experience with DogVacay so I really didn't know what to expect. After finding Sadie on the site I contacted her and she responded right away. She answered all my questions and even invited my and my dog Chelsea into her home to see if it was a good fit for all. After being more then satified with my visit I went on my most needed vacation which allowed my no contact with Sadie at all. She gave me the security and peace of mind to know my dog was in great hands so I could enjoy my vacation worry free. When I picked up my dog on the return trip she was just as relaxed as me. Sadie is an animal lover and is great with the dogs. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a host and she also has a beautiful family.

Sadie and her family where extremely welcoming to both of my dogs. She definitely kept me posted on how they were doing as well as giving good tips as well as products that I have bought because she recommended & are great! When my husband and I came to pick them up, it was like they have form their own pack with storm (Sadie's dog). They were excited to see us but they did not want to leave. Just make sure you book early because she is very popular. I havent been always lucky in booking with her with some last minute out of town trips. She's great!!!
Read More...
Sadie is the best! She had no problem accommodating our last minute request. Our baby Sudan was happy as a clam when we picked her up- i feel great that she is so well taken care of at Sadie's.
Sadie V. was the best! We were apprehensive. Della is a senior dog. We weren't sure if she would get along with her dog, or become depressed, though the "meet and greet" went well.

Della's stay was wonderful! Sadie V totally understands the nuances of dog behavior, and using a combination of love, treats, and leadership kept Della calm, and the relationship with her own and another visiting dog harmonious.

I'm already booking again for an extended stay for Della. I totally recommend Sadie V. as a professional sitter who'll provide a mindful, loving and comfortable environment for your dog.

I am so happy I found Sadie! I was really nervous about leaving Skip for the weekend but once meeting Sadie I felt so relieved. My energetic 2 year old Beagle Skip spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with Sadie. She was sending me picture message of her dog Storm and Skip playing, Skip sleeping, etc. Iam so happy and thankful that I finally found someone that I know my dog will be safe and comfortable with. The best part is since Skip always had a dog to play with he was tired when we got home he just wanted to sleep so I had a chance to unpack and get settled. Again, I cannot say enough about how great and lucky I feel that I finally found someone to take such good and special care of Skip when I am away!

Thank God for Sadie! She took such good care of our little baby, we are so thrilled to have connected with her. She is truly a dog person- she even predicted that Sudan was going in to heat! Sadie's home is immaculate while very comfortable. She made us feel at ease leaving Sudan for the first time with anyone since we've had her. She sent us photo updates each day. I could tell Sudan was well-taken care of when we picked her up. My only hesitation in writing this review is that she will be booked the next time I want to go away!

This was my first experience using dogvacay and it was amazing. Thank god that I found Sadie, she's the best sitter I could ever imagine. She took care of my baby Simon for 1 week and everything wad great. She texted me pictures of Simon every day and telling me wad going on with the dog. Her family is beautiful and very friendly people. Your Dog will definitely love staying with her because of the way that she is with dog and get lovely dog storm. Storm is very friendly with dogs so don't worry. I will highly recommend Sadie to anyone, she's the best. Simon will definitely go back with her for another visit.

Our experience with Sadie and her family was wonderful. We met with her twice prior to Bosco's stay and each time she made us very comfortable. When we picked him up after our vacation he was happy to see us but you could see how happy he was being there. During our vacation Sadie sent us pictures and updates which made our time away from Bosco easier. We will definitely not think twice about having Bosco stay with Sadie again.

Awesome! I enjoyed seeing the pics of Buddha sleeping in Storms bed and playing with the other dogs. She didn't want to leave!!! Sadie is great and I wouldn't hesitate to leave her with her in the future!
Thanks again to Sadie and her family for taking excellent care of Mariah!
My husband & I thought we would never be able to travel together again. We were a bit nervous about leaving our baby with anyone. Then we met Sadie. She was fantastic! Her home was dog friendly, she was able to lovingly handle all of her vacationing pups & she even sent me pictures of my baby playing!!!! After that I totally relaxed & enjoyed my own vacation.

Upon our return we noticed that our baby was not only happy & comfortable in his new environment, but he was also groomed!!! Apparently it had rained while we were gone & Sadie gave our boy a dry bath. He was happy & so were we.

Once again, we took Mariah for an overnight visit to Sadie and her lovely family. It was what we have come to expect, just perfect. In fact, it is the ongoing joke at home when Mariah is being difficult,
"Hey, let's send her to Sadie, she'll come back better behaved!" We will be sending her back in August again for a visit. Thanks Sadie for your exceptional care of our girl.

There aren't enough words to describe how great Sadie and her family was in taking care of Pot Pie. This was my first experience with dogvacay.com and I needed someone who knew about bulldog's special needs. When I scheduled a meet-n-greet and met Storm, Sadie's bulldog, I knew my bulldog, Pot Pie, would be more than taken care of, he would be at home with Sadie. During my trip, Sadie sent me regular updates of pictures of Pot Pie enjoying his stay, going to the dog park, walking with Storm and sleeping on Sadie's bed. I think he was more sad to leave her home than the fact that I had to leave him. I will definitely use Sadie again when I need to leave the city.

Sadie was responsible, caring and knowledgeable in taking care of my dog Cody. She walked him regularly and took him to the dog run, which I was happy to hear. My Cody enjoys playing with other dogs, and he came home a very happy dog.
As usual, awesome experience with Sadie and her family. I got pictures from Jack playing at home and at the park. There are no words to describe how thankful I am for the care that my baby receives at Sadie's.
A few days for my Jack to enjoy his second home, Sadie is so amazing , as well as her family, they are so caring. I couldn't have found a better home away from home for my baby.
Great great great!
Sadie was an absolutely fantastic pup-sitter. Our girl Pan is a rescue, and usually VERY nervous around new people, but she warmed to Sadie within 30 seconds! I've never seen anything like it. The fact that Sadie has an adorable bulldog for Pan to play with helped too. Even with all of her puppy-like energy (she's just over a year), Sadie managed to wear her out with lots of playtime. She was also very understanding when Pan had an accident inside, which is super sweet. We will definitely go back to Sadie in the future.

It was Lady Eleanor's third time staying with Sadie and she loves it! I remember seeing the dog Cookie on the previous review, she and my bulldog puppy got along great. I cannot recommend Sadie enough!
My boyfriend and I were soon going on vacation and needed someone to take care of our cookie. Sadie made us feel very comfortable in her home and made cookie's stay wonderful! Cookie is a toy yorkie and was a little scared after seeing the big dogs she'd be staying with for the weekend, but after a couple days Sadie sent us pics of her playing with the big dogs! When we arrived back to pick cookie up she was as happy as we'd ever seen her! Happy to see us, and playing with Sadie's dog a little. Once, we left we noticed Cookie, only being 4mos. old walking on her leash in confidence! Thank you Sadie for all your help! We will def. be back!

Sadie is a lifesaver! I recently got a puppy and already had vacation plans. I didn't want to leave her in the crate relying on family to walk and feed her. Also didn't want to go the kennel route. I happened to find this site and sitter and it was the best thing ever. From the first phone call with Sadie I felt I made the right decision. When we first met in person my dog immediately knew she was in charge. I felt I was with the female version of Cesar Milan, lol. During my time away she kept me updated with numerous daily pics. My puppy seemed so happy I almost felt bad picking her back up. I can go on but I won't, book Sadie! The site is legit and Sadie is amazing. Definitely will be using her again.

I'm not sure who enjoyed their vacation more, me and my family or Avery?
Avery has always been a happy camper every time she stays with Sadie. Not only Sadie provided Avery with lots of toys and friends (other dogs on vacation) to play with, she also provided her with the love, care and affection that she needed and a spot on her bed!!! I'm confident to say she is not lonely while we're away. As always Sadie delivers!
Thanks for the love and care Sadie....and the pictures!

Sadie, did an excellent job!! Thank you so much, he looks like he had so much fun!
Pawsome doesn't begin to describe my experience with Sadie. She is a wonderful person, and treated my Molly as if she were her own. She put me completely at ease and reassured me that Molly would be, and was fine while i was away. I will DEFINITELY be using Sadie again to watch my furbaby.

My dogvacay experience with Sadie is incredible! She loves dog with all her heart, she took good care of my dog, and her hosting price is unbeatable! I have a golden retriever, when the season becomes warmer she sheds a lot even i cant stand with. Sadie had no problem with shedding,which i appreciated , she brushed her everyday when she walked her in the park. Sadie has her own dog named storm(i hope i spell it right:P), Storm is an English Bull, super cute and sweet, always smiling to me, i did hope i could take Storm home as well when i left:P Thank you so much Sadie, I will definitely come back soon!

This is the second time Koko has had the pleasure of vacationing with Sadie and as always, Sadie is THE best. She takes amazing care of Koko and Koko wasn't on her best behavior on this trip but Sadie is awesome at handling situations. Koko loves Sadie and Storm =). Also, I had to go on a last minute trip and Sadie was able to take Koko with the short notice which was a lifesaver.

She sent pictures of Koko on her favorite part of the couch. Koko had a fresh bath and looked great when I got her back.

I HIGHLY recommend Sadie! Feel comfortable knowing that your dog is in the best hands and is on a vacation as well when they are with her. =)

My dog Zoey was completely wiped out from having so much fun at Sadie's. The fact that she sent me pictures of Zoey while I was away and even let zoey snuggle with her in bed were extra bonuses! I'll definitely be using Sadie again next vacation and will refer her to my friends as well.

Sadie is AMAZING!!!! This was my first use of dogvacay.com and it was a great experience. My puppy was sooooo happy under her care. She's a great person and very knowledgable. We are going to use her every time we need to travel. I'm sooo grateful for Sadie and recommend her hands down!!!!!

Sadie was awesome with my baby Jack, he was so happy when I picked him up, and was obvious he had a great time. Jack stayed with Sadie for 2 weeks, during that time she texted me pictures, Jack was always playing with Storm, he learned a few tricks. I am so happy I met Sadie and Jack got to be taken care by a great dog loving family. Surely I would recommend her to others and I will continue to ask her to take care of my baby. Thank you so much Sadie

Sadie is THE BEST EVER!! I feel so privileged to have found her. I researched different people, friends and websites and stumble upon her. I saw she had excellent reviews so I made sure to reach out to her. She was prompt to respond and we set up a meet and greet. Usually my dog Koko is very well behaved but when we got to Sadie's house, Koko acted like a wild jackass. It was so embarassing but Sadie was very warm and welcoming regardless and worked with Koko. Sadie's dog Storm was super sweet and adorable.

The day I dropped Koko off while I went on a 2 week Christmas vacation, Koko still wasn't being a good dog, but Sadie handled her so well.

During the vacation Sadie sent me pictures of Koko and other dog playmates that were so cute and warmed my heart, letting me know Koko was having fun and in wonderful handles. She made sure to keep me updated with text and emails.

The day I came back from vacation to get Koko, Sadie brought Koko to the cab for me and you could tell that Koko had a great time and loved Sadie and vice versa. Sadie told me how much she loved Koko and handed me a bag of doggy treats that she told me Koko like. Koko gave Sadie a kiss goodbye and when we got back home, you could tell Koko missed being over Sadie's.

Also Koko looked great when I got her back. She was shinny, clean and smelled great. Her nails had been cut and her body looked nice and lean.

Sadie and I had a follow up call to discuss how everything went which was great. I'm so happy that not only did Koko enjoy Sadie and her family but so did they. They missed Koko just as much. =)

From now on not only will Sadie be Koko's permanent sitter, but I am going to take her over for play dates and some quality time with Sadie and her family.

I strong recommend Sadie as a sitter. She is truely the best.

Mariah stayed with Sadie again, this time for 2 whole weeks! A million thanks Sadie for taking such good care of my pup...I feel great going on vacation knowing that Mariah will be happy with Sadie and her family.
Sadie was wonderful! Very friendly and accommodating. Treats the dogs as a part of the family, I would recommend her to anyone!
We are so thankful for having Sadie watch our pups!! I can tell how much she loves them when we pick them up and they are happy,energetic and restful. I truly feel like Sadie and her family is an extension of our family. :)
Sadie did a great job taking care of Bear! She's outgoing, fun and clearly a 'dog' person. She had Bear for 4 days and took him to the dog park regularly. He slept most of the next day :-) He got along great with her dog, who even shared his bed with Bear (She sent me pictures). Her apartment was also easy to get to.

Saddie and her family were the perfect stepfamily for Mariah! Loving and warm, they treated our puppy just the way we would do it. Mariah got plenty of exercise and love. Saddie's dog, Storm, is the sweetest friend, and put up with Mariah's puppy energy with patience and playfulness. We will be booking Saddie to take care of Mariah again in a few weeks!

Sadie and her bulldog Stormie were amazing! She cared for our precious Edna for one week as if she were her own. We received several pictures documenting how much Edna was enjoying her time. Edna was truly spoiled with constant love, affection, trips to the park and even a bath! Stormie was a great companion to Edna, she is incredibly sweet and a wonderful host! I most strongly recommend Sadie to anyone who wants the best for their dog!

Sadie and her family (including Storm) are amazing. Our dogs felt right at home when we came to pick them up. Sadie has a real gift with dogs and we can't wait to send our little ones back to stay with her!!:)
Sadie was awesome with my little baby and I would recommend her to anyone. She took care of Penny as her own. I loved that she was able to take care of my little one at the last minute and I will consider her for my future boarding and with the rest of my babies I have. She took care her while she was in heat and gave her, her vitamins when needed. Thank you so much Sadie. See you soon:)

Sadie was a lifesaver! We have always taken our dog Buddy to Petsmart's doggy hotel when we go away on vacation. They are a bit pricey and I feel that Buddy doesn't get the true attention he needs. Sadie was excellent with Buddy. Her home is very pet-friendly and welcoming. I feel very comfortable knowing that I can go away on vacation and Buddy will be in great hands. Even my two sons warmed up to Sadie's dog Storm. They loved her! We will definitely use Sadie again and highly recommend her to anyone who needs a dog sitter :)

Sadie was hands down the best dog sitter I have ever had! Liberty has tons of energy, but Sadie spent a lot of time at the dog park playing with her so she came home sleepy and happy. Sadie was so reassuring and understands how stressful it is to leave your dog with a stranger- she even sent pictures!

Sadie was such a pleasure to work with! Sadie and her family welcomed my bulldog with open arms on very short notice and really took care of him while I was away. The communication was great, she really cared for my dog and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a caring, reliable environment for their dog.

We first met Sadie and Storm at the dog park before we know she's a host in DogVacay. We were of course thrilled when we saw Sadie's name while browsing DogVacay!

We saw first hand how she interacts with Storm and other peoples' pets.We know Avery will be in good hands with Sadie. She not only played with her (she has lots of toys in her apt by the way), took her for runs at the dog park, went for walks but Sadie was also there to comfort Avery when she was scared. Apparently she got scared of the noise during the 4rth of July fireworks. This is a plus! We're grateful to know that in times when Avery was scared and we were not there to hold and comfort her Sadie was there.

Thank you Sadie for taking care of Avery like your own. We enjoyed our trip knowing that we don't have to worry about her.

Avery is a happy camper!! And we are happy campers:-)

Till next time!

PS: The pictures you sent are hilarious by the way:-)

When Bella came to Sadie, she had been ill from improper treatment from the previous caregiver. I was en route to pick up Bella from across the country and I was terribly worried about my dog. Sadie came to the rescue accepting a last minute reservation and actually got Bella well again... This was an angel sent to help my precious dog. I'm so grateful to Sadie and wonderfully well she took care of Bella. Bella is now doing well and back to being her normal self! Thanks Sadie! You are a lifesaver!! God Bless!

Sadie was a life saver! Literally! She took such great care of Bella! I was so happy to hear reports from my brother who picked Bella up while I was still traveling cross country to get her! Bella was happy and active. Sadie was so accommodating to my last minute needs for Bella. I couldn't be more grateful.
