About Emily

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am an experienced pet sitter that would love to care for your furbabies! I love animals of all shapes, sizes, kinds, and breeds.PIT BULLS ARE WELCOME. I have animals of my own and used to foster for the humane society for several years. I have been pet sitting for about 9 years now and am very trust worthy and dependable. I am very patient and understanding with dogs when it comes to their temperaments, potty training, medical needs, separation anxiety, leash skills, ect. I have cared for elderly dogs, epileptic dogs, diabetic,dogs, food aggressive dogs, and of course overly energetic dogs.

I understand that while owners are away, pets just aren't their selves. Being without their family is very stressful. I dedicate my time to these pets while their owners are away to make sure they are as comfortable and happy as possible. I do that by following their normal routine and by giving them as much attention as they need.

I have three spunky small dogs with big attitudes and a kitty , they are all very friendly once they get to know the new house guests! My boyfriend of 3 yrs and I own our own 1,700 sq ft home, which has a very nice, grassy backyard with plenty of space to run around and play in! It is fully fenced with 6ft tall wooden fencing. I am a short drive away from the Fort Steilacoom dog park which I can take your dog to (If okay with you). I go on lots of walks regardless of the weather! I do have a part time job but my boyfriend (Brandon) is always at home with the dogs when I am unable to be. Your pets will get lots of love and attention here at my house. I treat your pets like my own. I give lot of snuggles and way to many treats! : )

Doggy daycare is available depending on schedule. ( I am experienced with this arrangement)

I am available on short notice! contact me a day or even hours before and I will make it work!

Some things I would love to know about your dog:

-I would like to know how your dog interacts with other dogs. Safety for the dogs is number one at my house, and understanding how your dog is with others goes a long way helping things go smooth. Do they like their space? Do they understand other dogs wanting their own space? ect. I have experience with all behaviors and know how to handle them accordingly but every bit of information I can gather before hand will help tremendously!
-I feed all dogs separately just in case but would like to know of any food aggression before hand
-Any allergies or special needs instructions
-whether your dog is crate trained, prefers to be crated at night or where do they feel most comfortable when I have to leave the house at all. I generally like to let them roam free at all times but some dogs feel more secure in a crate if that is what they are used to.
- what makes them happy? What is their favorite treat, toy, game? tell me as much about your dog as you can
-what are their feed instructions?

We absolutely loved Emily! She took in our large dogs at the last minute after a different sitter cancelled, and we have definitely found our long term sitter! She sent us picture updates and responded to messages super fast. I could tell upon meeting her how dedicated she is to the dogs she cares for! We will absolutely be back! And my dogs seemed to have the time of their lives during their stay!

This was my first time ever using a dog sitter and I thought that Emily did a great job. She responded promptly and was very accommodating. After spending the day my dog clearly had a great time and immediately fell asleep in the car. I will definitely be using Emily's services again.

It was wonderful to be able to leave my boy in such a loving and responsible home. Thank you. We'll be back.
Emily and her boyfriend were fantastic! Our dog seemed very happy to be there and we will definitely be using her again. The house seems to have many different areas that can be separated with gates, so dogs can be kept in quieter areas if needed.
Emily and Brandon are very kind and wonderful to work with. Their home is clean and comfortable and they took great care of our lab for 10 days. He had a little trouble settling down at night, so they tried different arrangements....like having him sleep on the couch with a buddy for example... to make him comfortable. Emily responded immediately to all of my texts so we always knew how things were going. She was also flexible about our return time and had all of his things ready for us, which we really appreciated. During his stay, our dog was able to play with other dogs as well as have the comfort of human interaction that he craves. We felt so comfortable knowing he would not be in a kennel! We would recommend Emily to anyone and will definitely be calling her for all of our future trips!

Very sweet and nice, quick to respond and flexible on timing. Took our dog at the last minute. He usually stressed out at change, but when we picked him up he was calm and happy. Will definitely use her again.
Emily watched our pup Maya for a week, and she did an amazing job! Maya has anxiety and is shy around other dogs, but she excelled at her "doggie-sitter's" house (what my three year old son called it);D I will definitely be going back to Emily whenever we need someone to watch Maya again, I can't say enough great things! :):)

This was our first time using Emily and have to say our experience was amazing! Her and Brandon were great with our pups! They went on walks, have a great yard for them to play and were very flexible in accommodating our late pick up! I will be using them exclusively from now on! Thank you for taking such good care of our boys and welcoming them in as part of the family during there stay!

We had such a great experience with Emily! Tugger seemed much happier in comparison to having to stay at a kennel. He is an emotionally needy dog, so it really helped to know he was somewhere he would get attention. Emily responded quickly to any questions and sent photos of Tug while we were away. We kept having to change our dates and she was so sweet and flexible about it. Thank you so much!

Excellent! We did a meet and greet and then booked with Emily. We were very pleased with the updates and the care. Will use again if possible!
Emily was very easy to work with. She was incredibly flexible to work with my last minute schedule. I have already recommended her to friends. I will definitely contact Emily for future needs.
Emily was great. Flexible with times and really gave the attention needed. A clean and quiet environment for your pet. I would highly recommend.
My dog had a blast at Emily's house! My Stella snuggled up with them on the couch and annoyed the resident dogs. Emily is great at recognizing animal behavior and giving dogs as much or as little attention as they need. I watched her supervise play between my dog and another in her care. She was not put off by my dog's growling and stepped in when she felt it could have gotten too rough. I received pictures and updates while I was away so I always felt at ease.
I feel like she truly cares about each dog and their well being. I am so happy to have found someone I trust with my baby girl.

We had a great experience with Emily. We have used dogvacay in the past and have always been pleased with the outcome. Emily is very flexible with times and is very good at responding quickly over dogvacay.com or text message. She and her significant other are extremely welcoming and seemed to have taken wonderful care of our dog. I would recommend Emily in the future and we will definitely be sending our pup there in the future.

Emily and Brandon are fantastic! We knew our little ones were in great hands when we dropped them off, which gave us the piece of mind to be able to leave town and enjoy our vacation. We will definitely call on Emily for future doggie vacation opportunities.

Emily did a wonderful job hosting our two dogs while we went back to Wisconsin earlier this month. It was the first time we had left our dogs with a sitter that wasn't family and she made the process easy and care free. Emily supplied us with daily pictures and text updates showing our 6 year old Minpin and 1 year old Leopard Dog/Lab happy and playing in her clean and well kept home.

We couldn't have been happier with the services Emily provided and we'd be happy to hire her again during our next trip out of town. Emily deserves an A+ rating. Good work Emily. Thank you again.

I am highly satisfied with the level of care given to my 80 pound senior dog. Emily kept me in the loop with pictures and texts, and never left his side. Her house is impeccably clean considering her involved she is with the fur babies. I can't stop raving about her. She's going to be my permanent sitter!

Emily has been such a blessing to us! Over the summer we moved from Georgia to Washington, which was very difficult on our dog, Bandit. He is very fearful in general and sometimes reacts aggressively. On top of that, I've been traveling for work a lot and my husband works long hours. We didn't know who could take care of Bandit for us when we were gone. Then we found Emily! She is very confident and aware of dog body language and so sweet to the fluffy member of our family. She is also VERY prompt at responding to messages, a quality that I really appreciate. She has been kind, flexible, and helpful each time we have worked with her. Bandit is learning to be a little less timid and we are so at east knowing when we have to leave him that he is in good hands! I love that he gets to interact with other dogs and gets human attention while we are gone. We prefer this to him being taken out once or twice a day at a kennel, or paying the extreme upcharge that a lot of kennels offer out here for more than that. I would absolutely recommend Emily if you are looking for someone to care for your pet while you are away.

Outstanding service from this young woman. We met in her home and later at a dog park so we could see where and how our pet would be cared for. Received daily texts telling us how our pet was doing during the visit and some of the fun points our dog had each day. Wish we had known about Emily seven years ago, we will be back again and again. We felt our pet was safe and loved and had such enjoyable vacation because we knew Emily would be a great caretaker. We were so happy with how loved our "baby was" during his stay. Can't say thank you enough......see you next time. I'm telling everyone from my Vet's office to our Groomer to take their pet to Emily, they won't be disappointed.

We needed a dog sitter for our 2-year old Weimaraner for two nights. At first I was hesitant contacting a sitter that did not have any reviews yet. However, Emily's profile caught my eye immediately. I emailed her right away and she quickly responded to set up a meet-n-greet. During Stryker's stay with Emily, she took great care of him and sent us picture updates. She is very experienced, has pets of her own and a clean and welcoming home that Stryker felt very comfortable in. I can honestly say that Stryker was in great hands and that I would recommend Emily to others wholeheartedly. We will definitely be using Emily as our dog sitter again.

Emily was absolutely wonderful! Our pup has anxiety issues and is incredibly shy. Emily was very patient with her and did everything she could to make our dog feel more comfortable during her stay. She sent us updates and pictures and was flexible with changing our pick-up time. We will definitely be going back to her for future boarding needs!
