About Stephanie

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there! I'm Stephanie and my roommates are Moose the great dane and Tommy the cat. I have a small house in Cabbagetown with a fully fenced in yard. Moose gets along well with all dogs despite his 150 lb stature. Tommy just likes to creep around and eye all our new guests. He's a good kitty who is fine with dogs as long as they don't try to eat him.

About me: I grew up with 2 dogs, Mickey and Buster, and 2 cats, Kate and Allie, along with loads of turtles, lizards, hamsters, frogs, etc. I worked as a kennel assistant at a vet all through high school ('96-'00). In college I went to work for a local pet sitting business and worked there until I graduated in '06. I started my "real" job right out of college, but to make extra money I started filling in as a backup pet sitter for a local company. That was in 2007 and I've been filling in ever since. I also have some private clients that I've been watching for years. I will gladly provide references...just let me know. I have fostered numerous dogs at my house for Lifeline and different great dane rescues in the SE. I have also kept dogs for friends.

I adopted Moose 3 years ago and before that I had Bella, whom I adopted after foster failing. She passed away from old age in 2014. Tommy was an adopted kitty back in 2008.

For dogs staying with me...PLEASE READ:
-I require all dogs to be up-to-date on their vaccines and on flea medication.
-Your pup needs to be dog friendly and OK with cats. Interested pups are fine, dogs that eat cats for breakfast are not :)
-I work a regular 8-5 schedule M-F, but am around all the time outside of that. I can also go home for a 30 minute walk at lunch.
-If your dog is well behaved in the house they will be allowed to wander. If they have a tendency to get in trouble I have a great dane sized crate that they can stay in during the weekdays.
-I never allow pets outside unattended, even though both front and backyards are fenced.
-We will go on at least one long (2 mile plus) walk a day and I will be glad to bring your dog to local dog parks if your pup is into that kind of thing. I have lots of love to give and lots of time to cuddle so your pup will be in good hands.

I prefer Meet & Greets prior to accepting booking reservations for new guests. I just want to make sure Moose and Tommy will be comfortable in their own home and that you get a chance to see where your dog will be spending his time.

After first meeting Stephanie I knew that she was the perfect choice for my Senior Labrador. Stephanie's home has super good energy and we are looking forward to our next stay with her and her dog Moose.
Lucy had an awesome time staying with Stephanie, Moose and Tommy. Stephanie's updates were great and we were relaxed and able to enjoy our vacation knowing our puppy girl was in great hands. Would definitely recommend Stephanie!
Stephanie kept my dog, Nadine, for a long weekend. She was very friendly, punctual and did great with my dog. Nadine has seizures and takes medication. Stephanie handled everything without problems.
My Great Dane, Molly, has stayed with Stephanie and Moose a few times now and has always had a blast! This vacay was no different :) Stephanie knows how much Molly loves the dog park so she even took her each day of her stay. She also knows how much I love getting updates and sent me daily videos and photos to keep me updated on Molly. I really cannot say enough good things about Stephanie! Thank you for everything!
Bowery had such a great time with Stephanie and Moose over Labor Day Weekend. I think she is a little depressed to be back home with her boring family now! Stephanie was wonderful to work with, flexible on timing and laid back about any of our needs. Her house is well laid out for dogs, with a fenced in yard and in a walkable neighborhood. Moose is a gentle giant and sweet playmate. I'd ask them to host Bowery again without reservation.
Our pup Duke had a wonderful time staying with Stephanie and Moose. She truly cared for him over his stay and I received daily updates and photos. We are very appreciative that he was so well cared for and were able to travel worry free knowing our pup was in good hands. Thank you!
Molly had another great stay with Stephanie and Moose! Stephanie takes such good care of my girl. She takes her on long walks, to the dog park and sets up dog play dates to make sure Molly has the best experience possible. Stephanie asos sends tons of photos to keep me updatdd. I am so happy to have such a great person to look after Molly. Thank you Stephanie!e!
Murphy had an amazing time staying with Stephanie & Moose! Stephanie took Murphy on plenty of walks and to the dog park. She sent me daily updates with photos. It was such a good feeling knowing Murphy was in such great hands. I highly recommend Stephanie. Thanks again!
Molly had another great stay with Stephanie and Moose! Stephanie took her to the dog park each morning and sent me tons of pictures while I was out of town last weekend. It's such a nice feeling to know that your dog is being well taken care of while you are out of town. Thank you so much Stephanie!
Stephanie took such good care of my dog, Molly. She took her to the dog park everyday to make sure she got her exercise. She also sent me tons of pictures of Molly and her dog Moose. I would highly recommend Stephanie :) My dog is already going back in a few weeks!
Pepper had a great stay with Stephanie (and Moose!). She took her on a long walk and even worked on her training! She was very accommodating to our schedule - we felt very comfortable leaving our puppy with her and would do it again in a heartbeat!
Mallory had an excellent time during her stay with Stephanie and Moose! She is a highly energetic puppy and Stephanie was super flexible and accommodating to allow her to run and get it all out. We will definitely be back!
This was my first time using DogVacay and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Stephanie is such a pleasure and it's very apparent how experienced she is with dogs when you meet her. She sent pictures, daily updates, let Maggie sleep in her bed and was flexible with early drop off and late pick up. I'm new to Atlanta and I am stoked I found a trusted sitter. I would recommend her to anyone.
