About Norma

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My home is a two flat , with a double lot which makes my yard very big, this was the one thing that made me fall in love with this house (my husband wanted to move to the suburbs because he wanted a big yard, and I refused, I'm a city girl!) the yard is completely enclosed with a wood and iron fence with 3 doors and all of them have a lock which can not be open from the outside or inside without a key, we have an above the ground pool, which is not accessible to my dogs, and I'm a stayed home mom, have two beautiful girls Frida 14 and Julieta 10 and they also love animals, and my wonderful husband of 25 years Armando. Our family is big!!! My two girls, husband, myself, 3 dogs, (two medium size and one small), there is also Niky my 10 years old cat, which coco loves to chase around! and last but not least Sam a loving 17 year young cockatoo, he has a cage and when he is out, the dogs are out on the yards or someplace running around the house, (Sam is only allowed in the kitchen). You might think these are a lot a animals but please remember we have a big house and a big yard, I loved animals since I can remember and I'm happy to say I have taught my girls the same love for animals, Frida would like to be a Veterinarian. I have been with dogvacay two years, and it has been a great experience !!! I love animals and love taking care of them!!!!

Norma was awesome, my puppy had so much fun and I was happy that she came home tired for all the excitement and playing.
This was my first time using Dog Vacay and i couldn't have asked for a better experience. Norma is very kind, welcoming, and a timely communicator. She has a great set up for watching dogs and has been doing this for years, which helped ease any concerns of mine in using this service. I would definitely have Maya stay with her again in a heartbeat.
Love it! Summit loves staying with Norma.
My little guy enjoyed his stay. Everything was easy for me. Norma pick up my little guy in the morning before my flight and returned him after I came home. Very stress free. Norma was kind and sweet and Vito warmed up to her right away. I will use her services again!!!
Norma was a great! She was very quick to respond and answer any questions that I had. My dog, Thor, came back very tired and worn out from all the playing. I would highly recommend Norma to anyone looking for someone to watch their pup!
Norma was great and my 6 month old puppy came home from her week-long vacation happy, healthy and exhausted. There were lots of opportunities for her to socialize with other dogs, which was great.
Overall very happy with Norma and Rocky seemed happy when I dropped him off.
My dog absolutely LOVED it at Norma's and was in heaven! I highly recommend for socialized dogs!
Norma took care of my 2 girls over a weekend and I definitely recommend her. She sent me pictures of them and they got lots of exercise! Next time I go on vacation I'll reserve with Norma again.
This is the second time our dog stayed with Norma and it was another great experience. She is very attentive and keeps us up to date about our dog while we are on our trip. She takes great care of him, and he comes home exhausted from playing his whole stay.
This was the 1st time I have used DogVacay. Norma made me feel very comfortable about leaving my dogs with her. She is very experienced and has a great space to take care of the dogs. Her family are animal lovers and welcomed my dogs into their home. She sent me many photos during my time away which gave me huge piece of mind. My dogs seemed to also have a great time and have been exhausted since they came home so I have no doubt they spent a lot of time playing in the yard and with Norma's dogs. I will definitely recommend her.
Norma is great. always takung goid xare of Shoko and always available and flexible
Our dog had a great time with Norma. She is very communicative and friendly and clearly really loves these dogs! We were very happy with her service and will be back.
We booked Norma last minute because we were going out of town. She was our #1 choice because of all the repeat guests and numerous positive reviews, which is a sign of a great dog sitter! We were originally going to drop him off but she offered to pick him up since she was going to be in the area. It was so wonderful to have Norma take care of our Hank. We didn't worry about him the entire weekend and she even sent pictures and updates. He was able to run around in her backyard and play with other dogs as well. It is very difficult to tire out Hank but this dog was absolutely pooped for a few days. We will definitely be using Norma again when we need to go out of town and cannot bring him with us!
My one dog has a lot of issues meeting new people, and my other dog is very shy and timid, and both can be escape artists when I'm not around, so I was VERY nervous to leave them for 15 days when I was in China - but Norma was great with them!!! She sent updates, and the dogs had a blast, and were very safe and well kept! Very happy with my experience! (we had done a meet and greet, and a weekend trial prior to my trip - and those had also gone very well!)
Norma was an excellent host. She worked with our schedule and responded quickly when organizing the drop-off and pick-up. Great host!
Norma and her family took care of Pepper for a couple weeks while I was traveling. I'm very satisfied with the care they provided for my baby. Norma is a wonderful person and I could tell she's great with animals as soon as we've meet. I received feedback and photos during my trip. Honestly, I think I needed more attention than my dog since this was the first time I was leaving him for such a long period of time and I was going overseas which made it even more emotionally difficult for me. Norma was very sweet and understanding and I'm grateful for that. Pepper is tired after all the exploring and sniffing he's done in Norma's yard and I think he misses it (we live in a condo, so there is no running free in the yard anymore). Also, I haven't noticed any emotional change in him after bringing him back home which happened couple of times after I boarded him at a vet clinic. Thank you Norma! Pepper will be back to your care next time I'm traveling.
Luffy had a great time even though I did not pick her up myself, my dad did mention that she had been taken care of perfectly and that she was even tired from playing with the rest of the dogs. I wish I could have had some pictures sent since it was the first time leaving her with a stranger but overall I'm very pleased by how Norma took care of her.
Norma was amazing with my puppy. My puppy came home tired from all the play and love she got from Norma and her puppies. My wife and I are so happy that we have found Norma that we have already reserved a second extended vacay for our puppy. If you don't believe the hype, then go visit her and watch her interact with your puppy and her backyard - you will leave impressed.
Norma and her family were fantastic! She has a lovely home and yard for dogs. My girl had a great time there and will definitely be back in the future.
Rocket always has a great time here and comes back exhausted and healthy from non-stop play
I was very satisfied with the care and the space Norma gave Kuro! She was happy with her stay!
huge help in a vacay emergency. she was so easy to work with and my pup was worn out after! big backyard in chicago is rare and I loved that nala could have some freedom while still in the city
Summit had a great time with Norma. She returned happy, tired, and very content. Norma was wonderful to take our dog in the last minute as another DogVacay cancelled the week before we were departing the country for spring break.

I would use Norma again.
Norma took great care of our dog! He came back really exhausted due to having lots of fun with others! She was very caring for our dog!
This review is long overdue!!!

Norma was absolutely wonderful and loving with our two bulldogs! Given that we have two bulldogs, they can be bullies with other dogs at times.. in this case they were and Norma was great at addressing the situation appropriately and keeping the dogs separate from the others while still providing TLC and pics! Thank you Norma!
Metzli had a great time with Norma and her family. I'm pretty sure she was sad to leave her and all her furry friends. We plan to return!
We found Norma via a neighbor referral but we were still super hesitant to leave our baby with a stranger. She and her husband were so sweet. She let us come by and meet her and see her place (and of course bring our dog). We booked our vacay and we're glad we did. We picked our dog up after 5 nights and he was happy as could be. Big perk---he was tired!! She has great yard he got to chase tennis balls in all day (he's a lab). Thanks again Norma!
During 7 days Coco lived and played with other dogs in a familiar environment. Norma was great to him and Coco came back super happy! Hasta la próxima! ;)
Always great! Bruce loves going to Norma's for his own vacation--when I'm on mine! THANKS again!
Norma and her family love dogs and we felt very comfortable leaving our pup with them. They are very accommodating and understanding of special needs. We are grateful that our experience went so well. Thank you again Norma!
Norma is great. Bart really enjoys staying with her and her doggies! He plays and plays all day long. Once we arrive to my house, he immediately falls asleep! Highly recommended. She also sent us pictures and comments about him during his 2 past stays.
This is our first time with Norma and she was wonderful. We took few days off for Christmas to be at the beach so had to leave our Longlong to Norma. Norma sends daily updates and photos of Longlong so we know he's in good hands. Loved the service and we will be using Norma on all of our future dog sittings.
Great as always. Norma really cares.
Bruce had another great stay (a long ten day stay this time!) at Norma's house! She always takes great care of him--and he comes home both happy and tired! As always, a BIG THANK YOU for making Bruce feel welcomed when I travel! THANKS!
Rocket loves it at Norma's. Tons of play!
Norma and her husband are JUST WONDERFUL!!! Wrigs was a happy and tired boy when we picked him up!!! We will definitely use Norma again!!!!! Loved her!!!!!!!!
Norma and family are great hosts. They really know and love dogs of all kinds. Our pups are always happy to stay there. They always get the care and attention they need, and love to play in the big back yard.
We trust Norma and her family to take great care of our dogs. The always have a great time, and get all of the attention they need. The house has a big, fenced-in yard for the dogs to run and play in.
We have boarded our dogs repeatedly with Norma and her family. They really know and love dogs. We can always count on them to give special care when it is needed.
Your dog will love it at Norma's!
Fantastic experience! Our dogs loved their stay with Norma and her family, they are really dog lovers and took great care of our dogs! I will consider again working with Norma!
Moo always stays with Norma. He loves her family, and their big backyard. Norma is always accommodating too.
Wembley always has the best time at Norma's!
They're always nice to the puppers and he comes home tired. Good for me!
Wembley loves it at Norma's!
Norma was great and welcome our dog with a lot of love. Our little dog seems really happy and tired. We'll be back again.
Norma ... Has taken great care of my Milo, always loving and caring to him.... I feel so grateful to have found such a great doggie sitter...Thanks a Bunch!!!!
Our dog was treated like part of the family. I'm sure she will be back before long!
Always a great host!
Norma has taken care of Milo several times, she is a great host, taking good care of him, he seem very happy all the times, I've pick him up... thanks Norma...
Norma was great! I had a last minute reservation and she was very accommodating. She gave me daily updates and pictures of Riley!
Another great stay for Wembley :)
Wembley loves going to Norma's!
Our usually very active pup came back happy and tired- we highly recommend Norma!
I would not recommend Norma to a friend/family member. I know with the recent dog flu spreading around Chicago that many dog sitters were quite busy but Norma had probably at least 10 dogs and they seemed to just run around unattended on the first floor while she lived on the second (the first floor was disgusting). My dog came back with too much food left- not sure if she wasn't fed or ate another dog's food. She also lost my dog's medication plus pill pockets. Find another sitter.
Norma and her family are wonderful! I found myself desperate to find a place I felt safe leaving my dogs after their usual boarding facility reported several cases of canine influenza. I received pictures and updates from Norma and when I picked up my dogs today, both were happy, healthy and full of energy. Norma will be my go-to person from now on when I go on vacation!
Norma was extremely amazing. She made me and my family feel good that our dog Myles was in great care while we were on vacation. This was the very first time leaving Myles at a homecare. I was impressed by her place really designed to care for dogs and loved the fact that the dogs are not crated. I will definitely utilize her dog service when we go on vacation again. Thank you Norma!
What a wonderful experience! We will definitely be leaving Karma with Norma again. We have always used a large pet hotel to board Karma in the past, I was so nervous to leave her with a private individual. Normal was great she sent photos and text to keep me updated. karma is a special-needs senior dog, she is deaf and has problems with her back hips. Normal was sensitive to these issues. In the past when we would pick her up from being boarded she was usually limping and we could tell that she was doing things with her hind legs that she shouldn't have been doing. This time she was an absolute perfect condition, a little bit tired from playing but that's okay! Further when we have picked her up from other boarding experiences, she would cry when she would CS and bark at both my husband and I. This time she was quiet and only cried a little bit, would you let me know that you didn't miss us too terribly. We definitely recommend Norma and I are hoping to use her over and over again in the future. Thank you!
She was fab
Norma has cared for Milo three times, ranking good cate snd send me pictures of his progress while we vacation. Milo loves playing with her girls and seems very happy when we pick him up, after are vacation. Thanks a bunch Norma
Bruce had his second great stay in the last month at Norma's house. Got some great pictures of Bruce while I was gone, and he came home happy and exhausted!! We'll book Norma and her family again for Bruce's future stays! THANKS!
We dropped off our pup just for the night while taking some friends site-seeing. They said he played the whole time in the yard, and he did sleep the whole day after we picked him up. They entertained him for sure.
Norma and her family were so warm and welcoming to Bruce! He seemed to have an experience as close to being at home as actually being at home. I needed to find someone who could be with him 24/7 and uncrated, since that's what he's used to, and that's how and when he behaves the best! He came home after my trip completely exhausted--from all the fun he had with the other dogs at Norma's house. She also has a great yard that is completely fenced for the dogs to get out and run. Norma said he had a 'favorite chair' in their house--which also provided an experience that is like being at home for Bruce! Norma texted me a couple times during his 8 day stay and sent me pictures one day that let me know how he was doing! Thanks a ton!!
Our dog seemed happy and well adjusted to Norma's home, after our 10 day vacation. He was busy playing with lots of dogs at her home and still got a lot of attention. She even let him sleep in the bed!
Olivia had a blast like always. Love getting pictures and updates from Norma. And of course I love knowing she is being given the love and attention she needs. Olivia will definetly be back. Thanks Norma!
Norma was great as always. Poppy always has a great time there. Norma was very understanding about our loss of Jasper.
Norma was the perfect babysitter for my little Knuckles. She was incredibly responsive and accommodating throughout the entire process. The steady stream of photo updates while I was away offered great reassurance that my pug was in good hands. Will definitely be reaching out to Norma again the next time I need a dog-sitter!
This is my second time using norma services , she is always so sweet and caring to out pet, thank you!
Norma was terrific! She was super attentive to our pup and sent daily updates and pictures. Our dog loved his stay and we loved how he was exhausted when he got home. Will definitely be using Norma again!
Norma was fantastic! She sent pics of Henry and was super helpful when I dropped him off. She also was very accommodating when my flight was delayed. Henry will definitely be back with Norma in the future!
Wembley had a great time, as always!
Norma was absolutely wonderful with Mufasa! I was a little nervous about trying out DogVacay as a first time user since Mufasa is a senior with some health issues, but Norma helped put those concerns to rest. The minute I walked into her home she was friendly and was very affectionate towards Mufasa. I knew my boy would be in great hands. Norma sent me updates and pictures of Mufasa while I was away. Mufasa had a nice time relaxing and getting to know Norma's dogs. I will definitely use Norma in the near future because I want someone that will actually care about Mufasa and treat him well, like he belongs to her family. In fact, I just sent a second request moments before posting this review! :-)
Wembley loves going to Norma's house! Last time we got to her street and Wembley stopped right in front of Norma's house, excited to go in. Norma always has other dogs there that Wembley can play with too.
Norma took care of Wembley for 10 days while we were on vacation. As always, Wembley had a great time and came home a pooped pup. Thanks!
Norma is AMAZING! She absolutely loves animals and will take care of yours as if they were her own. I had to do a last minute booking and she responded right away. I didn't make it back in time because of flight issues, but she was completely understanding and worked with me to make arrangements. I highly recommend her! She even does doggie daycare! Your dog will surely be on vacation. Her backyard is a dog sanctuary!
Norma was great with our dog Zorro! She gave constant updates and seemed to really care about Zorro. She is extremely pleasant, and has a great backyard for the dogs to play in. And Zorro seemed very happy to be there as well! I would certainly ask Norma to watch Zorro again.
Norma was great! Super helpful on last minute notice. Easy to get a hold of and flexible. Will definitely use her again.
We had to extend Wembley's stay for an extra day as our flight had gotten delayed. Norma was very understanding and more than happy to look after our little bear for an extra day. Thanks again!!
Norma took such good care of two year old Newfoundland, Wembley. She came back home pooped and happy. She had a big yard to run around and she made lots and lots of new doggy friends. We will definitely have Norma watch Wemble again.
Molly always comes home happy and tired from Norma's house. She and her family takes good care of Molly when we are out of town.
Norma is wonderful with dogs, and i appreciate the updates we get on how Luca is doing. She is my "go to" with dog sitters for my german shepherd.
Norma is very caring towards our Bella ... we have used her services multiple times. Norma tries to make Bella as comfortable as possible. While away on a recent 5 day family trip, she proactively kept us informed on how Bella was doing. Bella was not eating her food during her stay due to change in enviornment and not being around her family (Bella has never been away from the family for this many days). Norma kept us informed and offered to make different meals so Bella can eat. We appreciated what she has done to take care of our Bella while we were away ...Thank you!
Norma is the best, hands down. She looked after our dog Jasper while my husband and I took a little babymoon to Mexico this spring. She sent pictures and updates throughout the week, which put a smile on our face. (It was really the only reason we checked our email on vacation!)

From the moment I met Norma on our meet n' greet I knew Jasper would be in good hands. She's so warm, a total dog lover and her home and backyard are perfectly set up to host numerous pups comfortably. We wanted Jasper to stay somewhere where he felt like he was at home and could play all day with other dogs. In fact, he had so much fun that I think he was a little depressed when we brought him home! He apparently had a girlfriend for the week so he may have just been lovesick. He was happy, we were happy and we will absolutely use Norma again. We are thrilled that we found her.
Loved the host's friendly, flexible service, the large fenced yard, and the affection for our pup. Would use again
Norma took fantastic care of my pup for one week. She noticed that Molly wasn't feeling well and had some blood in her urine and called me right away. We were able to get her into the vet the same day and Norma took her to and from the vet. She was diagnosed with a UTI and Norma started her on the medicine immediately.

I will leave my Molly with Norma again and am so thankful that she was so observant to catch the UTI right away.

She also has a great big backyard and Molly slept for 3 days when she got home!
Norma and Armando are great. They really understand and love dogs, and we felt very comfortable leaving our dogs in their care. They have a lovely old house in Logan Square, which is fitted out to be very dog-friendly, with access to a sizable back yard, and comfy places for the dogs to curl up on. Our older pup had some stomach trouble during the stay, and Norma took great care of him. We would definitely have them stay there again.
My dog had her third stay with Norma over Memorial Day weekend, and she loved her stay. I got pictures from Norma showing Olivia playing with other dogs and spending time outside, which she loves. Norma is also very loving to my girl, who can be skittish with new people, and I am really thankful for how patient she is. I will definitely be using her services again. Olivia loves her!
Jax had a ball. He didn't want to get out of the car when Norma dropped him off.
Norma B was fantastic! We left our 5yr old puggle with her for 5 days and everything went smoothly. Norma sent us texts with pictures every other day with updates to show us how much fun our pup was having. Her prices were competitive but affordable and she was very flexible as far as pick-up/drop-off.

She keeps the dogs in her home which looked clean and well set up for dog boarding and she also has a yard to give the dogs plenty of outside time.
I am very thankful to the love and attention that Norma and her family give to my pup. I feel good leaving her in such great hands. Thank you!
Norma agreed to keep Jax at the last minute and she was great. She sent lots of cute pics and I could tell he was having a great time. And, the best part is he came home pooped!
Norma took great care of my Max! He had so much fun when I was out of town for the weekend, and got the special attention he loves that isn't given at typical boarding facilities. This was my first time using DogVacay and I will definitely be a returning customer, especially requesting Norma's care! Max was put on medication (1 pill, 2x a day) the day before I left but Norma made sure he took every dose while I was gone. She even sent pictures and text updates to keep my mind at ease so I could enjoy my weekend away. I highly recommend Norma and DogVacay, and I'm very happy I found this company.
We just got back from vacation, during that time Norma was so sweet keeping us informed of Milo 's progress including cute pictures... up on r arrival Milo was very happy and well take care off. We are so happy with Norma 's family for taking great care of Milo,
Thank you Norma!
Milo had a great time by norma's place today he seem very happy. ThanksNorma♥
We are very happy with Norma, Milo seems very happy and right at home:)
Norma was the best. I was really worried about finding a nice place to leave my three dogs for the weekend. As soon as I met Norma, I knew that they were in the right hands. She let me know how they were behaving and even sent pictures. When I picked them up, they were running around having fun with other dogs. I could tell that the dogs had fun. I will definitely use Norma again.


Vincent was very well taken care of! We will definitely be using Norma in the future!
It was our first time leaving our German Shepherd for a full week. Though a sweet dog she can get a little nervous and anti-social. I couldn't of been more at ease with the updates i had gotten from Norma on my cell. She was so happy and seemed not to notice we weren't there. When we picked her up, though happy to see us, you could tell she was very comfortable at their home. Great family, you can tell they are true animal lovers. We will have Norma in mind for the next time, for sure. :)
Norma was a godsend! My girl Olivia stayed with her during the Christmas holiday and New Years. 10 days without my pup is much longer than I would have liked, so I was so happy to get text updates from Norma about how she was doing. She sent me pictures and it was obvious that Olivia was having such a great time she hardly had any time to miss me. We live in an apartment, so I am sure my pup was very happy to get to play in Norma's yard with her new friends.

I especially appreciated how patient she was with Olivia. She is a rescue and is usually afraid of new people, but Normal handled her very well, giving her time to explore and adapt. By the time I went to pick her up, Olivia took her sweet time giving Norma some love before we left, so it was obvious she had warmed up to her host. I am so happy I found Norma through dogvacay. She will definitely be seeing Olivia next time I am out of town.

Thank you Norma!
Norma is fantastic. We left our dog over the holidays and she kept in close contact with us throughout, sending pictures and regular updates. She even gave them stockings and treats to celebrate with her family. She takes care of several dogs at a time and lets them run in her large yard her children also love to play with the dogs. She's super flexible and always available. We felt so much better having our dog stay with Norma and her family and we would highly recommend. Thanks Norma,we'll be back!!
I was about to give up on DogVacay in Chicago when I found Norma. First, she responded very fast and it was obvious she liked animals and had lots of experience caring for them. When I dropped off my dog I felt like I was leaving her at a dog park. I loved Norma's backyard and that my dog got plenty of time playing outside. Norma was also great about administering meds.
Norma was great! She welcomed us and our pup with open arms. She has a wonderful house with a big, completely fenced in back yard. She does look after a few other dogs during the day, but our dog gets along fine with other dogs, so this was okay by us! Our flight home actually got cancelled, and we had to extend our trip a day. Norma was more than flexible with us. I would definitely recommend her! In fact, we have another trip next week and we already booked her again :)
This is our first time with Norma. She definitely lived up to her 5 star ratings. We received photo updates daily during our vacation. It was very reassuring knowing that our dog was under supervision 24/7. He even got to sleep in Norma's bedroom. We will be using her service again.
My wife and I left our 2 dogs with Norma for a long weekend. She obviously loves dogs and is good with them. We wouldn't hesitate to leave them with her again.
Norma was great. I had previously booked a sitter and they canceled. Dog Vacay recommended Norma. We met and I knew it was a perfect situation. Charlie loved being able to be outside in a yard. Norma and her family took great care of Charlie, even fell in love with him. She sent me updates and pictures.
If you need a great pet sitter, call Norma!

Norma is now watching Charlie a few times a week
and I will use here again for any over night travel I have in the future

thank you Norma!
Norma and her family were great. They provided much entertainment and fun for our dogs, not just w/ other dogs that were there, but with her family as well. We left them with her for 5 days, and the dogs came home happy and exhausted. She was great them (as was her family) and we'll definitely be leaving them with her in the future. While we were away, she sent us updates and pics of the little monsters, and was also very accommodating with our drop-off time as we had an early flight.

Thanks for all your help, Norma!
Norma was fantastic to work with. She was super flexible and very kind and her family was really sweet. I received photos & updates almost daily, letting me know how my furkid was doing. This really puts a dog owners mind at ease - especially when you haven't used this service before. Bill Murray LOVED having other doggie friends to play with, and I think he kind of misses them now that he is home. I will definitely use Norma again in the future, and am even considering seeing if Bill Murray could spend a day a week with her, just to have the interaction with others. Highly recommend Norma :)
Norma is the best! Charlie loved staying there and he was exhausted when we picked him up! She was also very flexible with my schedule for drop off and pick up times. I will absolutely be calling Norma to watch Charlie again!
We left our 6 mos old puppy, Finn, who had been showing signs of separation anxiety, with Norma for a long weekend. We were worried he wouldn't respond well to being left, but Finn loved being there within the first few minutes! In fact, he didn't even notice when we left! Norma texted us with pictures during his stay, and it looked and sounded like he was being spoiled with lots of attention, completely easing our concern of leaving him alone.

When we went to pick him up, he refused to leave the house, and had to be carried to the car! Norma was great and her backyard is awesome for dogs to do some exercising and exploring! Finn played with the other dogs, ate pears, and went swimming. We will definitely be booking another visit for Finn soon! I'm sure he misses Norma lots!
Norma was so wonderful to our pup Bentley. She sent multiple pictures and I could tell he was having the best time! He came home after a week and could barely keep his eyes open from all the fun! I wish we lived a little closer so we could have her watch Bentley every day while we are at work. I am so thankful to have found Norma and her family and will have her watch Bentley anytime we need a sitter!
We left our 12 weeks scottish terrier for one night at Norma's house and everything was fine. Norma is a really nice person who loves animals and together with her daughters they provide a welcoming environment for our little friends. I would definitely recommend her services!
Norma was a fantastic host for our 4-month old goldendoodle puppy. She welcomed Philly in with open arms and an open heart.

We were away for three days and Norma updated us with photos and text message updates. She runs a doggy day care so Philly had other dogs to play with during the day, and she has the perfect back yard for letting doggies be free rather than cooped up.

Clearly much better alternative to boarding, we will be leaving Philly with Norma every time we go out of town.

Norma, thank you so much!!
It was a wonderful experience. Lucy loved the big yard, and Norma was amazing to her. I really recommend her.
Lola's favorite part about her visit with Norma? Spending lots and lots of playtime outdoors in Norma's yard with Coco.

Through the photos that Norma sent us, it was clear that Lola loves being outdoors and having space to run around and exert her energy. This was the perfect place for her to do that.
Norma and her and family were excellent! Loki had a phenomenal time. Norma was provided excellent supervision and stimulation for our puppy, Loki. I know we will be using here services again and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to watch their dog(s)!
Norma and her girls were awesome with yayo! As soon as we got home he fell asleep. I highly recommend her!
once again, Ralph came home happy and tired. He gets so excited when we walk up to Norma's house, so I know he's well cared for. Excellent hosts!
Norma and her family are just wonderful. She sent me pictures and updates several times during the week, and I could tell that Ralph felt very at home there. He slept in bed with her daughter, played with CoCo and the other dogs and came home tired and happy. He was very well cared for at Norma's and I will certainly be making reservations with her again soon.
