About Bayleigh

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Please call for additional services details: 612-807-8671

** We have a holiday rate of $32 per overnight and and $23 per daycare. Please book early - wealways fill up quickly! **

NEW: If your pet destroys something during their stay, the owner must pay for item at the time of pickup. By having me watch your dog, you are agreeing to this term. (Destroys something that was out of our control to stop. )

We are true animal lovers! I am a stay at home wife and mom. I have dogs and cats and am even a vegetarian because I love animals so much! I love to play with my animals and spoil them. I have a hard time leaving my own pets so would love to find someone like me to watch my animals when I am gone. I can be that person for you to leave your pets with no worries!! Our goal is to have repeat guests so that your dog gets excited to come back to see us!

We have a dog room and a large fenced in back yard. My dogs are super friendly and little. I can keep my dogs separate for dogs that need it. We can provide a dog pen area as well if your dog needs it. I even filter all the water our pets get! We do send pictures and updates during your pets stay.

We are available for most holidays (holiday rate is $35 a night) and if it says unavailable, please send a message and let us know your needs and we may be able to work it out!

REQUIRE a meet and greet sent through the Dog Vacay site. This is recommended to meet you and your baby first so they are less anxious when they come back and so we can make sure we are all a good fit. Please bring detailed written instructions so we can keep your pet on their routine as well as current records of vaccines.

We are nonsmokers!

Bayleigh did an awesome job with my daughters cat Stevie. I would highly recommend Bayleigh for an future vacay.
Very good, thank you :)
Very nice family. Really love dogs and took good care of our dog.
Lenny was very well taken care of and loved as if he was a part of their family I wouldn't hesitate using Bayleigh again Thanks!!!
We were so nervous to leave our 6 month old puppy while we were out of the country! Our little pup came home really happy and we could tell he was well taken care of. We are so appreciative knowing that he was in great hands with Bayleigh and Jeff; they really seemed to care a great deal about him!

Merlyn was worn out when we picked him up, so he must've had a good time!
Thanks for taking such great care of dexter again!
We felt lucky to have found Baileigh on Dogvacay to look after our shy dog, Buddy while we were overseas. She made sure to send us photos of Buddy regularly, which reassured us that he was okay. Thank you so much Baileigh!
Wonderful hostess. Our dogs spent a week with Bayleigh and her family. They have lovely space, nice yard and are good people. I would highly recommend her. We would love to have our dogs stay with her again on our next vacation.
Bayleigh was a good sitter, she took good care of our dog and sent us updates during the day.
Drake stayed with Bayleigh for about 10 days this month, and he was in good hands! It was a great experience and Bayleigh kept us up-to-date with messages and pictures. Overall, Bayleigh was very professional--everything from her reliable communication to her knowledge about dogs, etc. We wouldn't hesitate to have Drake stay with Bayleigh again.

Quick response on a very short notice! Very friendly and has a love for animals!
This was our second Vacay with Bayleigh,

Work. And Bayleigh was very accommodating and wonderful and Took our boys. She was wonderful as always and my boys were happy and the updates came everyday letting us know our boys were ok :-)
Another wonderful stay at Bayleigh. Thank you again Bayleigh for giving my babies a wonderful vacay! :-) they were all tuckered out when we got them home from playing with their new friends :-)

Bayleigh gave us total piece of mind on our vacation! She sent us several pictures and I know our dog had a great vacay!!
Olive had a lovely time at Bayleigh's, as always!
It was my first boarding experience, and I was concerning about how my hyper poodles will be doing... It seems like my dogs had their own vacation as they are very relaxed and tired after I picked them up :)) Thank you guys :)))
Momo's first dogvacay experience was great! She had so much fun that all she has been doing is sleeping since we got home. We will be going to Baleigh again for sure! Thanks for taking care of our little puppy!
As always, Olive's tail wags with excitement when we walk up to Bayleigh's door, and she comes home relaxed and happy when I pick her up.
Once again, Olive enjoyed her stay at Bayleigh's. She always comes home relaxed and at ease after hanging with the pups there.
Always great, thanks!
Biggie loves it there and I feel very comfortable knowing that he is well taken care of. I can focus on my business trip or vacation with no worries about my baby.
My dog Olive had such a great stay with Bayleigh. She was comfortable there from the first meet and greet, and got along well with Bayleigh's own pets. Bayleigh kept me posted with photos and details of activities throughout the weekend. When I picked Olive up to come home, she was so relaxed and happy. It was such a relief, as Olive is typically anxious with comings and goings, I will definitely bring her back again!

Excellent!
Just days before a 2 week vacation trip, our dog sitter called and canceled. We had no one to turn to and have had bad experiences with large boarding facilities. I checked DogVacay and found Bayleigh's listing.

The reviews were very positive, and she was quick to respond (minutes) to my questions. Bayleigh was very accommodating and we scheduled a meet-and-greet at her home. Fortunately, everything worked out and she agreed to take my 2 dogs (Buddi and Jessi). Thank goodness!

We were in Florida and then out of the country, and didn't realize that our phones would not work properly. We had to use texting to communicate for about 7 days, when we had no other way to communicate. Bayleigh made sure that we were updated and there were no worries. The food we brought didn't last and she let us know, then picked up some more.

My dogs were very well taken care of and the communication from Bayleigh was outstanding. Buddi and Jessi will definitely return when I go on my next worry-free vacation.

Another great stay for Kula! Bayleigh is so flexible and welcoming with a great environment. Can't imagine taking Kula anywhere else! Ryan
I have to give Bayleigh a five star review!
It was our first time leaving our babies with someone other then a family member and were very nervous.
Bayleigh reassured us and made us feel wonderful about this. She understood how nervous we were. she sent me pictures and updates every day which we loved recieveing!
And my babies were doing great and happy and got alot of socializing done with her pups and other pups staying with them as well. one of our babies is a little guy still only 4 mths old and she was wonderful with him . ❤️❤️
Thank you so much Bayleigh ! We will difinitely be bringing our babies back here when we go away again!

"Jack and Willy had to come home from their week-long vacation at Bayleigh's, even tho I don't think they wanted to!" It's so comforting to know that our boys are being taken care of, cuddled and spoiled while we are gone. The many pictures sent throughout their stay are so appreciated and prove that they are very relaxed and stress-free. Bayleigh is our go-to 'step mom' every time we need to leave the boys. Thanks again Bayleigh!!

Ms. Sophie (3 year old, wheaten terrier) had a wonderful time. When we have boarder her in the past, she returns only to express her displeasure to us by being aloof. Sophie was returned safe, well exercised, and happy. We hope to use Bayleigh soon.
My family and I had to travel home to New York due to a death in the family. Bayleigh responded quickly to our email about our last minute need for our dog. It's comforting to know that Dexter was in a caring environment while we were away. Thanks again!

Another great weekend for Biggie. I'm confident that he is happy while we are away!
Great time for Biggie. He loves it and I'm so comfortable having him there. Rebooking now ??.
Bayleigh encouraged a meet and greet with our dog and was flexible to work with our schedule. This was our first time leaving our 7 year old Puggle with someone besides family. He did great and we received communication daily about how he was doing. We will use bayleigh again for future vacations!

This was our first time leaving our 2 small babies at Bayleigh's. Receiving a picture of the boys during their stay really was awesome, I quit worrying and knew they were in great hands! They were both happy and tired at the end, we will be booking a week long stay with Bayleigh and Jeff for our vacation soon.

It's never easy leaving my dog with someone, but I am comforted in knowing that he will be taken good care of at Bayleigh's! Thanks again for another great stay!
Another great stay for Mozzy! I also really appreciate the flexibility and accommodation for my schedule. Thank you to Bayleigh and the wonderful care she provides!
Mozzy always has a great time at Bayleigh's, and I always feel comforted knowing that he is being taken good care of!
Bayleigh A was very welcoming on Friday when we dropped our little Liz off and took the time to talk to me, share her love of her dogs, and commit that she would take the best care of Lizzy for the weekend. Liz looked great on Sunday; she had eaten which is a real plus since she gets nervous and Bayleigh had sent pictures that showed her interacting with the other dogs. Lizzy will be heading back to Bayleigh's in two weeks and I'm totally comfortable now that she will be really well taken care of.

Once again, our pup had a great time at Bayleigh's. She is very accommodating and we know our Mooshkie is in good hands when we leave her with Bayleigh.
Tunia and Uma had so much fun playing in the nice fenced-in backyard that they were exhausted when they got home! Loved that Bayleigh had multiple dogs of her own so it felt comfortable leaving ours there overnight! Not to mention the pugs loved the playmates! Convenient drop off location on the way to the cities! Thanks again!!!

My dog, Milo (min pix mix w/ chihuahua) has been doing doggie care with Bayleigh on a daily basis for this past summer, and for out-of-town business trips (overnight stays) sporadically for the last year. Bayleigh is very flexible and accommodating, whether working early or late, and I know she takes great care of him during the day.

Another great time for Biggie!!!
Biggie had a great time...we keep coming back!
Bayleigh was very accommodating and we will definitely send our dog Bella her way again.
bayleigh did a very good job with my dog. My dog is not easy to deal with. I have received many text from her and one video telling me how he was doing while I was away. Bayleigh is a very kind person and anyone that takes their dog to her should feel very much at ease leaving their pet with her.

Biggie had a great time. I'm about to book him another vacay :-).
We were so pleased with the fast response and the late notice of taking our two pups! We have never used a dog sitter before and we were extremely happy. We received several pictures throughout the day letting us know how they were doing and what they were up to. We immediately felt comfortable and knew our pups were in good hands. We will certainly have our pups taken care of again by Bayleigh and her family. They were a very friendly family and excellent to work with!

My jake was not feeling great and Bayleigh is one of the very few people I would trust to have him as I know he will be watched closely.
Yet another fun visit for Kula and comfort for my family know he was well cared for. Thanks so much.
Bayleigh was great from the very first contact. She fit us in at the last minute and responded right away to questions as we were getting ready for our trip. She sent us pictures of Mercy and kept us informed about how she was doing. We will definitely use Bayleigh again!

Fritz was super happy when I picked him up after a week with Bayleigh's. The pictures that she sent me throughout the week were an added bonus -- showing that he was doing just fine. Two thumbs up -- or paws or whatever.
As always, a great experience! We always can go and leave Maggie, knowing she is in good hands. We enjoy our time, and know that she is having a great time, too!
This was my first experience with DogVacay and it was such a great experience! Bayleigh was very accommodating in accepting a last minute booking, as well as drop-off and pick-up time. I really appreciated the promptness when it came to messages. I felt in-the-loop with how things were going, and loved the picture update! I could tell Mozzy had such a fun time playing with the other dogs. I would definitely recommend Bayleigh, and we will be coming back in the future for sure!

Our dogs had a great time and came home happy. We loved the daily pictures and updates. Thanks again!
Thank you so much - it is comforting to know that our dog is in good hands and having fun. Thanks much. Merri
Great fit for our dog! I love the picture we received. Our dog definatley had a good time as he was very tired for the evening and part of the next day. Hope to connect with the family again! Thanks so much!!
Bayleigh and Jeff were very prompt in responding and we're very accommodating with our last minute meet and greet and accepting an overnight boarding right afterward. Their pack of small dogs were friendly to my medium-large boxer. Her behavior after pickup showed she had a happy vacation! We would be happy to have her stay again.

So nice to go on vacation and know that our girl is in good hands. This is the 2nd time we have had Bayleigh watch our pup and we are very satisfied with everything. We received, almost daily, picture updates of how she was doing - which was a comfort, for sure. We'll be bringing our girl back to their place, no doubt!

Once again our Zoey had a very nice stay with Bayleigh and her family. She was there for a week and we heard and received pics and messages almost every day. I can tell Zoey had a very good time once again and received lots of attention which she always enjoys. I would strongly recommend Bayleigh, and do know we will be going back next time we have to leave our baby girl behind. Thanks again Bayleigh, from Zoey and Family.

This was my first time with DogVacay and it was great. The pictures Bayleigh posted reassured me that Sadie was having a great time and getting the people interaction that she needs. I will definitely use DogVacay again.
Bayleigh is a dog lover and it shows. Lola is loved and taken well care of when she is there. I will definitely use their services again!
Maggie came home happy and tired. It was great to get her photo updates and know she was having a good stay. It's really clear that Bayleigh enjoys hosting, and all in all it was a great experience. Will definitely have Maggie stay with her again.
We've used Bayleigh 3 times over the past 3 months and have been completely happy each time with the excellent care our puppy received!!!
This was our first time using DogVacay and Bayleigh was great to work with. She walked us through all the steps to get situated and was great about keeping in touch about Jessie's progress. There was a couple other puppies there for the weekend for Jess to play with. I really liked knowing that our puppy wasn't just locked in a kennel all day.

Best of all, we ended a busy weekend with a TIRED puppy. :)
We'll definitely be a repeat customer.

Bayleigh was fantastic as usual. She is always so accommodating and our dog Leo loves going. This was our 3rd time and we will using her again soon!
My dog has so much fun with Bayleigh and her pups that he misses it when he can't go. I now will drop him off to have some play time for the day. The flexibility that she has helps with my random schedule.
This was our first time using Dog Vacay, and we couldn't have chosen a better place for our puppy to stay while we were traveling! She had such a great time staying with Bayleigh - lots of running around, and a caring and happy place to stay! We received regular updates and photos while our dog stayed with her, and we will definitely use Bayleigh again when we need a pet sitter in the future!

Bayleigh and her family were awesome hosts! I can't see Bob going to any other house. I was very satisfied and would recommend her to anyone.
Bayleigh did an excellent job with our two young pups. This was the first time they were away from home for the weekend. Bayleigh was knowledgable and caring. She did a great job of making us (and our pooches) feel at ease. Our boys came back happy and sleepy from all the fun they had! We will definitely be using Bayleigh again!
Read More...
This was my first time using this service and had a great experience! I felt very comfortable with Bayleigh watching my 14 year old dog and would highly recommend her!
Jake has had so much fun with Bayleigh. As a new puppy momma I was nervous to leave him anywhere. Now I want him to go there just to play in a safe environment.
The flexibility that I have experienced with Bayleigh has made this a much less stressful situation than I had anticipated.

Bayleigh and Jeff are great and made it easy for us to leave our dog with them for the weekend. And thanks to dogvacay for making it easy for us to find them.
Mackenzie and Max had a great time at Bayleigh's. They were very content when we picked them up but of course glad to come home. Having other dogs to hang out with was a great experience for them.
Bayleigh and her family did a fantastic job watching our Zoey. I didn't think she would be as spoiled as she was at home but she was. They were really good with her and I know next time we need a host she will be the first call we make.
Just picked up my dog after leaving him for the first time not only with Bayleigh, but really ever. I had him scheduled to go to the vet and spent the week prior a complete wreck over the thought of him kenneled most of the time....found Bayleigh on this site and couldn't have gotten luckier that she was available and so wonderful. We are home, my baby is happy, and I am thrilled. Thank you so much for being Ollie's home for the weekend.

Taz and Butterscotch seemed happy and relaxed when we picked them up. They just didn't seem all that excited to see us, more interested in what was happening around them, which shows they had a happy time. We thought we be licked to death! Bayleigh took good care of our puppies, which had to be a lot of work, even though we (ok, I) worried about the heat. I would recommend Bayleigh and will use Dogvacay again.
Read More...
Bayleigh and her family were awesome! This was the first time we had someone watch our puppy that wasn't a relative. I went over to the house to meet her and the family beforehand, which definitely put me at ease while on vacation. I got updates about our puppy and was able to see how she was doing. It is comforting, knowing that your puppy is in good hands. I will definitely be booking with Bayleigh again when we go out of town and can't bring our pup with us. Thanks again!!! :)
Read More...
Bayleigh was completely amazing!
Our dogs were a little stressed when we dropped them off and were barking quite a bit. She just asked what she could do to make them more comfortable. I totally thought it would not work out, but she went out of her way to make the time with our dogs fun and stress-free for our dogs and us! She sent updates and pictures and absolutely was the best! Couldn't recommend her more highly!
Read More...
Not only did Bayleigh and her family do a great job with my terrier-chihuahua mix, but they seem like genuinely nice and caring people.
Bayleigh was the perfect person to take care of our puppy while we were away. We were not very happy with having to board him but Bayleigh put all our fears to rest. During his stay we were sent a daily email that included a photo of the fun adventures our little guy was having. I could tell when we picked him up that he had a great time, I think he even wanted to stay a little longer! I would not hesitate to use Bayleigh again.
Read More...
Bayleigh is all around excellent. She was able to getus in with a few days notice, and my dog loved her. We will definitely be going back to her the next time I need to board my dog.
Bayleigh was awesome with our dog Sam! He is high energy and shy of other people/dogs but Bayleigh was spectacular with helping him warm up. She sent pictures of Sam each day which helped me feel he was doing well. She took us with very little notice and I couldn't ask for a better person to board our dog with. I will deffinately be using her again in the future!

The "Rate Your Overall Experience" stars weren't working for me but I would have given her all 5.

Bayleigh was great from the very beginning. She quickly returned messages and answered questions, and she is very professional and experienced. Her house is the perfect setup for dogs and she has thought through every detail of her business. This was the first time I'd left Mercy with anyone other than family and I felt very comfortable knowing she was with Bayleigh. We would definitely go with her again!
Read More...
Extremely pleased with Bayleigh!! She was very flexible and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend her and will take our dog back.
Bayleigh was great to work the whole way through, from setting up a meet and greet, arranging times for drop off and pick up, and taking great care of my pups! She is responsive, flexible, and is clearly an animal lover. I knew that both my miniature pinschers were in good hands while I was out of town, making it much easier to enjoy my vacation. I had some worries about how they would do with a new person and new dogs, but Bayleigh sent regular updates and photos to ease my mind. I know my dogs had a great time in Bayleigh's home and I will definitely contact her for future dog sitting needs.

Bayleigh was wonderful with my little Min Pin/Chihuahua mix, Milo. Her home is very conducive to having animals and Milo was right at home. I received pictures and updates on how he was doing, and Bayleigh was flexible with my work schedule in terms of drop off and pick up.

I would highly recommend her to anyone needing daycare or overnight stays.
