About Tory

CatVacay clients welcome!

Hello! I'm Tory Cheney. I'm 22 years old and I've been living in Denver since January 2015. I'm so excited to meet you!

A little about me:
I grew up with dogs and cats in my home, but since leaving home for college, and then moving across the country a couple times, I haven't had the chance to get a puppy of my own. My boyfriend and I are dying for the chance, but until then I am enjoying watching other people's pets!

I currently work full-time at H&M on 16th St. If you are looking for someone to provide 24-hour, constant care for your pets you might consider finding someone else. My schedule is inconsistent with daily commitments ranging anywhere between 5 and 9 hours long and beginning as early as 5 AM and ending as last as 12 PM. However, my partner Blake always joins me on my vacays and he works fewer hours than me, so we balance each other out. While we are with your pets they will be in good hands. We will walk, feed, play with them, and administer any necessary medications.

My rate is dependent on how many pets you have. Please feel free to contact me with your unique situation for a custom quote. Please include your address in your message as well so that I check how easy it will be for me to get to work from your home.

For any additional information, please ask! I'd love to speak with you! Thank you for considering me to watch your pets! Can't wait to hear from you!

Tory was great. She was very organized and professional and was easy to communicate with. She took great care of our dog.
Tory was amazing! Our pups clearly loved spending time with her & our apartment was spotless when we returned home. As an added bonus we got lots of updates & photos while we traveled, which always makes the time apart easier. If I could give her ten stars I would!

We have a 10 year old lab named Lucy who has hip dysplasia. We have never left her alone with strangers, so we were very nervous. Tory and Blake put us at ease immediately. They met us (and Lucy) at a park first to make the process more comfortable for us. We had them stay at our house with Lucy because she has never been boarded, and we wanted to lessen the stress of our being away. Tory sent us daily updates about Lucy including pictures. When we got home, Lucy was completely content which is unusual given that she typically has tons of anxiety when we are gone. I'm so thankful that we found Tory and Blake! We will definitely use them again in the future and refer them to our friends!

Tory did a great job taking care of our pup. She notified us if she had questions or concerns and kept us in the loop, which helped put our minds at ease while away from our dog. When we got home, we could tell that our dog was well cared for. Tory even collected mail and cleaned our house while we were away. We'll definitely use her again in the future.

Amazing as always.
We were out of the country for 10 days and didn't worry about our three dogs at all because we knew Tory was there. She came over before we left to go over everything, even though she had previously watched them and had a good idea about what they needed. She sent us updates a few times and a quick video of them playing. It was great. She even dealt with our basement flooding in the heavy Denver rain! We are so glad she was able to watch them for such a long time; we will definitely be calling her again!

Second time Tori stayed at our house to watch Roxie. We had a very nice worry free weekend in CA knowing Tori was with Roxie.
Tory took excellent care of our two dogs. They were their usual happy selves when we returned. Tory just took it in stride when she had to clean up after one of our dogs who peed indoors a few times. The house was as clean and tidy as it was when we left. We will definitely request Tory in the future. Great job!

Tory helped us out with a last minute request and took good care of our pups! She left us a note of how things went that really appreciated!
Tory helped us out this week, coming by to check on our dogs when they had to be home alone for extended periods of time. She was so kind in helping us out with the last-minute request, and spent plenty of time at our house giving our pups the attention and care they like! Tory asked for specific instructions and left us notes of how things went. We will definitely call Tory again!

My wife and I met Tory through the Dog Vacay site. We needed someone to stay at our home with our 12 year old Springer during our 3 day/2 night trip. Tory was very flexible in meeting our needs. When we returned we found Roxie to be very happy and relaxed and our home clean and neat, just as we had left it. Tory is a very responsible person and I highly recommend her.

Tory was great. She was professional from our first meeting and took great care of Madison and the apartment. Highly recommended.
Tory is great and I know our pup is in good hands when she is watching her! I highly recommend Tory.
We had never used a pet sitter before Tory, but she immediately made us feel comfortable with her professionalism and obvious love for animals. She came to meet the dogs before we left and send text and picture updates throughout the weekend. The dogs loved her! We will definitely use her again, and highly recommend her services to anybody looking for a pet sitter.

She was so flexible with our pup's needs and kept me updated on how he was doing. Would definitely recommend to others!
Tory was great! She came to meet the dogs ahead of time and they enjoyed playing and cuddling with her right away! She kept us informed about how everything was going during our four days away and we returned to 3 happy pups and a clean house! She cleaned up everything and left a great note to tell us how everything was. I would definitely recommend Tory and call her again!

Tory did a wonderful job of looking after our dog. She put our dog at ease, treated her kindly, exercised her regularly and was very good about following our dog's somewhat unique dietary restrictions.

I feel very comfortable recommending Tory to anyone else needing dogcare.

Tory is a clear animal lover. She took good care of our dog, and even sent us photos during our trip to let us know how he was doing. Tory is a kind, trustworthy and all-around awesome person. I'd recommend her to anyone!
Tory was great! Sent pictures and updates and was very responsive. Thanks so much!
Tory is AMAZING!!

Our 4 dogs got to hang out with Tory over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend at our home. We received constant updates and photos through-out the weekend and when we came back all 4 dogs were extremely relaxed and happy to have spent their weekend with Tory.

Up until this weekend, we always used Pet Hotels but Tory's service is so personal and perfect, no hotel could ever match.

I highly recommend Tory to you and your family and friends.

Tory stayed at our home and watched our dog and cat for a week while we were out of town. We arrived home to our very happy and energetic 11 year-old Labrador who clearly had been well taken care of. In addition, our house was very neat and clean, exactly as we left it. We highly recommend Tory for any pet sitting needs you may have.
