I have been pet-sitting for years. I started watching a friend's pup about 15 years ago & have continued to watch his pup along with many other friends' dogs, rabbits, cats & more! I also have experience giving animals medication (orally or injections). I don't mind cleaning out cages/litter boxes as needed either.

As you can see from my pictures, I am comfortable with dogs of all breeds & ages! I would help train & show my grandma's AKC dogs. My family had dogs when I was really little, but when I was in 4th grade we got a cocker spaniel that we had for 15 years! I am also comfortable pet sitting other animals (see the VERY comfortable cats I've watched & the cute bunny). Animals tend to be comfortable around (and ON) me!

I lead an active lifestyle & love bringing pups on walks, hikes and even runs!

Since I will be in your home I think it's good for you to know that I am a very neat & respectful guest. My mom raised me to leave a place better than I found it. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs.

Heather was so great to work with! She was very easy to get in touch with and always sent us pictures of our dog enjoying himself and cuddling with her. When we got home I think the house was even cleaner than what we left it. I would highly recommend!
Heather was awesome! She left our house in great shape and the animals were all spoiled upon our return. I will definitely use her again as she is a very trustworthy and reliable person. Thank you again Heather!!!
Heather is absolutely incredible! She's so professional and trustworthy! We give her a key and she treats our crazy 3 year old lab like family! I would refer her to any family with pets that needs someone wonderful! Our dog loves her walks with Heather and even some cuddles! Book her ahead of times, she's so good that she's quite busy :)
Heather was professional and responds in a timely manner to requests. She agreed to a Meet n' Greet before hosting. We had her watch and care for our dog for a full 2 weeks. I would use her services again.
Heather Rene did a great job. She gave daily updates with pictures and let me know how he was doing. The house was ship shape and Duke was very happy when I returned.
Heather stayed at our home for several days and I felt confident leaving our dogs in her care. She responded quickly to my questions and sent photos of my dogs behaving exactly as they do when they're fully relaxed with me. I will definitely be using Heather again!
Heather always does a great job of taking care of Rudy and Roxy. I would recommend her to any traveler. :-)
Heather was easy to work with & my pups seemed to be super comfortable with her company. I'd recommend her!
Heather was great! She took great care of our pup! She also stayed in our home and was extremely neat and clean. I would recommend heather to anyone!
So glad Heather Rene was available to dog sit Garfield while we were away for Thanksgiving. Not only did she take care of him and our cat, she also sent us pictures of his antics to let us know the two of them were getting along just fine. We would definitely ask Heather Rene to watch him again.
Pups had a great time with Heather, as always!
Once again Lilly enjoyed her vacation with Heather Rene. We really appreciated her being available on short notice. We certainly will use her again in the future.
Pups enjoyed staying at home while Mom was away. Heather did an excellent job maintaining their routine and taking care of everything while I was gone.
Heather is fantastic! She is attentive, responsive, and great with our dog, Tebow. Couldn't have asked for better service or for a better first experience with DogVacay.
Heather was a terrific sitter for Millie. She was attentive and responsible and took very good care of our 15 year old, including meds and quirky diet. We highly recommend having her stay with any pet you may have!
Heather took great care of our dog Lily. Lily seemed very happy and well cared for when we returned. The house was also in fine shape. We would definitely use Heather again!
Heather was great. She was able to watch Tucker even though she did not have much notice. Tucker did not appear to miss me too much. Also, she was flexible with days knowing there was a chance I might get delayed. She sent me a picture of Tucker playing with favorite toy and it helped me relax knowing Tucker was taken care of. My apartment was left pretty much exactly as I left and
Heather is a kind, conscientious pet sitter. She took expert care of our two dogs, cat, and fish. When we returned home, the sheets were washed, the yard was scooped, the litter box was empty and the animals were happy and healthy. She sent pics and updates during our trip, asked questions when needed, gave medicines as needed, figured out our dog personalities quickly,and let us relax on vacation knowing the animals were in good hands. I highly recommend Heather as a pet sitter.
Heather was so nice! I will definitely use her again. Dexter didn't even miss me!!
Heather was great! We couldn't of had a better experience for our first time with an over night dog sitter. She took care of the dogs with all their special needs seamlessly. She left the house clean so there was nothing to worry about upon my return.
