About Emily

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 22 year old college student hoping to major in ecology, evolution, and behavior at the University of Minnesota. I grew up with a dog, volunteered with a rescue and fostered dogs, volunteered at the Como Zoo aquatics department, and worked at 2 different dog day care centers. I love all animals, especially dogs, and would love to help you out with yours!

In my photos you can see the Dakota Rail Trail, which I absolutely love as an exercise resource, especially for high energy dogs. The picture of me with the caterpillar demonstrates that not only will I feed your dog, I'll feed your fish, snake, or tarantula too!

Emily was great! See stayed at our home and took great care of our dog, Manny, and our home. She sent us text messages everyday to update us on how Manny was doing. We will definitely be a repeat user!
Emily was great! She was very patient with Queen and earned her trust. She was also very patient with this anxious dog mom-kept me updated and put my mind at ease.
Emily did a great job taking care of my two old pups. I cam back to two happy, healthy dogs, who had been well taken care of in my absence. I got updates while I was gone to know they were fine, and received a nice recap note when I returned. I would use Emily again in a heartbeat!

Emily did an excellent job taking care of our dog, Devo! She also sent us photos and texts that made us feel very at ease while we were away. We would certainly recommend Emily.
We've had a great experience with Emily! She loves our two dogs and is so great with them. We feel comfortable leaving and knowing they are in good hands! She stays at our house and lets them keep their normal routine which is great for them and us! We highly recommend her and will continue to hire her!

Emily took great care of our pups. She sent frequent updates and was able to accommodate us when our travel plans were disrupted by the airline. We will definitely use her again!
Emily was our savior! We had a family emergency and had to leave town. We had never left our Fi with anyone and we were scrambling to find care for her. We were so lucky Emily was available. The minute we met her we knew Fi would be in good hands. Fi has separation anxiety and Emily was willing to deal with our crazy schedule to make sure Fi wasn't alone. Emily sent many updates and was always available to answer my questions when I started to miss Fi. She also took care of our grumpy cat. We will use Emily anytime we need someone to sit with our pets!

Emily is wonderful and accomodating!
Very responsible and did everything I asked.
Emily is a great dog sitter. We have a very sensitive dog who does not like change...we often deal with strange behaviors after someone watches him. With Emily, our dog is always himself when we get home.

She is also super attentive to our needs. Whether it's text messages or phone calls, she let's you know what is going on so there's never in any doubt in the safety of your home and animal.

Emily J came and stayed with Piper and they had a great time. Piper even got to go to the apple orchard. Emily J is easy to communicate with and is very accommodating. I will definitely use her again.
Emily is a dog lover and it shows. She was very accommodating to our needs. Will hire again.
Emily was awesome!!! This is our first time using Dogvacay. Zoey does not do well in a boarding facility so we decided to give Dogvacay a try and have someone come to our home. We were a little nervous having someone we didn't know into our home. I emailed Dohvacay with some questions and they put my fears to rest. Then we met with Emily and she was delightful. Zoey was happy and so were we. Emily was so great. We will definitely use her again.
