Hi, I'm Whitney! Thanks for stopping by to learn about my pet sitting experience and how I'll care for your furry friend(s). I'll make this short and sweet as I know that you're searching through pages and pages of profiles here. I'm sure many of you are here for the first time, and I'd be more than happy to help you navigate through this sometimes overwhelming process.

I'm currently working on becoming a full-time pet sitter, and Dog Vacay has been an amazing place to gain the knowledge and experience that I need to take along with me. All questions are welcomed, so what are you waiting for? My wonderful little dachshund mix and I are on standby ready to meet you!

Whitney was fabulous! I don't leave my dogs often, and they're quirky rescues, so I was a bit worried about leaving them. Her home visits saved the day at relatively late notice, and she sent great pictures that put my mind at ease. She was able to give my elderly dog his heart meds too. My dogs will definitely see Whitney again!

Whitney was very patient and friendly with my rescue dog who is usually very wary of strangers. He had a great time staying with her and seemed super happy in the picture updates that were sent to me while I was away!
Whitney came over to babysit Ozzy last minute and she was great! I highly recommend Whitney and will definitely be using her again!
Whitney came through on a super last minute request ... our 12 year old, partially deaf, pug came home very happy ... We'll definitely ask Whitney to hang with our pug again.
Simon had a great time at Whitney's! Whitney is attentive and reliable, and we're glad to met her!
Whitney watched one of our dogs over a long holiday weekend, and was great! He was staying without our other dogs and was very nervous at first but Whitney was able to get him relaxed down and he had a great stay!
This is the second time Whitney has watched our dog, Callie. Whitney was amazing! We feel completely comfortable with her watching our dog, and she always texted us with pictures and kept in touch to let us know how she was doing! We are so happy we found Whitney!!

We were very hesitant to have someone come to our apartment to watch our dog, Callie. Callie is timid and a bit skittish. Whitney was great! She arranged a meet and greet with Callie first before watching her. Whitney kept in contact with us the entire weekend she watched Callie and communicated and sent pictures to us, which was amazing. I would 100% use Whitney again to watch Callie. Thanks!! :)

Whitney sat for our pups at our home and was great! Very flexible with our delayed flight and sent all sorts of pictures to let us know they were in good hands! We have three shelter dogs who all have their weird little quirks and she had no problems with any of them.

Whitney was amazing! We have an older dog who needs to be at home- she visited him and kept him company and he was so happy to have her swing by. Thank you so much for taking care of our old man!
Whitney was great! I had a last-minute booking request, and she responded right away, even helping me figure out a complicated drop-off situation. She sent tons of pictures of my (happy) dog during his stay, and even agreed to an extension when a family situation came up. I'd use her again in a heartbeat.

Whitney is great! She took care of the boys for daycare, and dropped them at home afterwards.
Captain Barnacles loved staying with you as usual. Thank you so much!!
Whitney was very communicative and had a very positive personality. I am sure my dogs loved their time with her if the photos are any indication!
Whitney did a great job taking care of our 2 dogs overnight. she sent photos of the dogs with her updates. they went on walks and they were ready for a nap when they got home! i am very happy with her service. i would definitely book her again!
Whitney was fantastic! She sent a ton of photo updates during our weekend away, and I could tell our pups were in good hands. Would highly recommend!
Whitney was great hosting my dog! Everything was easy, communicated clearly, & I felt really comfortable leaving my dog with her and her pup, Lux. My dog had a great time I think! I would definitely board here again! Thank you!
Whitney was great! She was very communicative, easy to book with, and did a great job walking the pups.
As first time DogVacayers we were a bit nervous to leave our 5 1/2 month old pup, Bowie, with a stranger for the day... but Whitney immediately calmed our nerves during our meet and greet. It was clear that Bowie was comfortable with Whitney from the moment they met and that she got along great with Whitney's dog, Lux, too. She texted pics of the pups playing and sleeping which was so nice to see, and also dropped Bowie off at home at the end of the evening which was super helpful! We would definitely trust Whitney to watch Bowie again.

Me and my wife met Whitney in the neighborhood while she was walking Lux. One time we needed a pet sitter rush for the next day and we requested her. Whitney responded us within 5 minutes and made room for our puppy on such short notice. She took great care of him and sent us pictures throughout the day. Highly recommended!

Whitney is amazing, she is so accommodating and friendly. My pups took to her right away and she took the time to understand their needs and make sure that we were comfortable and knew that they were having a great time! If you're nervous at all about leaving your dogs with someone I promise she will make sure they have an amazing time. I would give Whitney 20 stars if I could, fantastic!

Great experience. We were lucky to find Whitney the day before our vacation and she was awesome. The kids loved seeing pics of Franklin that Whitney had emailed. That was unexpected and a nice touch. I'm sure we will be sending her a reservation request again.

Whitney is great! My pups loved her right away. This was the first time I left my dogs with anyone and it was a great experience. Would definitely go back to Whitney and her adorable dog, Lux whenever we need a sitter again.
My dog, Bella, loved her stay with Whitney! She is very friendly, accommodating, and even updated me on Bella's stay with pictures during my trip. Her dog, Lux, is also a sweetie and very good with other dogs. I recommend Whitney as a host and am looking forward to more stays for Bella with her!

Whitney was great, hoping she will become my regular.
I wish I could give Whitney 6 stars. She is fantastic! I had never left my 10-month old dachshund with anyone before so I was anxious about finding the right person (and had already bailed on one dog sitter -- not from dogvacay granted -- who just didn't feel right to me) but the minute we met Whitney and her wonderfully sweet dog Lux I knew he was going to love staying with them and based on the photos she posted throughout his stay and I could see that he did!

I was especially pleased that he got to socialize with another dog (and Lux was very patient with his playful teenager antics which I have seen other older dogs get annoyed by) as well as at the dog park Whitney took them to.

I can't recommend Whitney highly enough and will absolutely be bringing my guy back to her anytime I have to leave him. Thank you so much Whitney!

Sorry my review is so late, Whitney! Amazing experiences for my difficult dog, twice in a row. He is particular about dogs but took to Whitney's pup immediately. It looks like he had a great time playing and was cheerful when I got home - didn't seem stressed at all by my long absence. Whitney was available on short notice both times and is easy to communicate with, and I trust her with keys to my apartment when she is sitting for my pets.

Whitney was amazing! My dog alf loved her so much she was so sad to leave! Will definitely book with her again.
Whitney was just fantastic with my little guy. From the start, she was quick to respond and follow through to messages, questions, requests. Very reliable and professional. She was a delight to meet in person and her dog is adorable too! She has a beautiful and sweet little Dachshund mix girl. The kind of dog that gets along great with other doggies, so that's a big plus. I really liked that she kept in constant contact with text messages and pictures, really does ease the doggie parents mind :) She also worked with my pup with training and was very understanding that he is a puppy and we haven't worked out all the kinks yet. She is so friendly and definitely has an understanding of dogs and dog behavior, and I felt 100% safe and confident leaving my pup with her. I highly recommend Whitney! We found our fave!! Human & doggie approved! Two paws up!!

I met Whitney several times while walking my dog around our neighborhood. After observing her with her dog Lux, I eventually asked if she could watch my dog as well. She turned me over to her DogVacay profile, and it has made a world of difference. Whitney is absolutely amazing with my dog. She applies wonderful training methods that leave my pup happy and obedient when he returns home. She's extremely reliable, and my go-to for puppy-sitting. I can't express what a comfort and relief it has been knowing that she's the one taking care of my puppy.

If you're looking for a highly detailed oriented, scheduled, responsible dog-sitter, Whitney is your girl! Leave your worries behind, because she's got it covered. Also, she has a very well behaved dog of her own so your pup will have a playmate while your gone. BONUS!

When I went to pick up Pruuu, I don't think she wanted to leave. Whitney is the ONLY host I'll use on DoyVacay.

Whitney is the best!!!

She takes great care of our pup, gives him lots of love and exercise, and even training. When MoMo gets home, he always seems to be more relaxed and well behaved. Whitney is extremely accommodating to MoMo's specific dietary needs, and provides set feeding times as well as training for barking and proper leash walking. She also offers a safe environment for MoMo to socialize with other dogs.

MoMo loves spending time with Whitney as well as her adorable and sweet Dachshund Mix, Lux.

We will continue to use her for our Doggy Daycare needs whenever possible.

Thanks Whitney!
