About Lucy

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Going out of town? Not sure if you want to board your dog in a place where he will sleep in a cold, concrete cell at night? Do you have a family dog that loves the chaos of kids and life? Well, here's your answer....we are a loving family who lost our 15 year old black labrador, Bentley in 2014. We are not quite ready to get a new dog, but are REALLY missing having a four legged friend in the house, so we would love to look after yours. We have looked after some amazing dogs since joining dogvacy and had so much fun doing it...you can see we have 100% positive feedback. We offer a loving home environment for your dog whilst you are out of town. Our yard is fenced in (high fence) and secure. I am a stay at home mom of 3 and will be around all day to look after your pet. I love to hike and run and would provide at least an hours walk/run per day, plus walks in the morning and at nighttime. If your dog likes to swim, we will take them to the beach for a splash in the ocean. If your dog likes to hang in the car like our lab did, then they can keep me company whilst I run my errands! The dogs we have stay become part of our pack whilst they are here. We have had so many great experiences with the dogs that have stayed with us. I will only ever have 1 pet in the house at a time but would be fine with 2 if they are coming from the same home. My children are very kind natured and love animals. They have grown up with dogs and are respectful of them and would only be in contact with your pet whilst under my supervision. My eldest son would be a great play pal for your pet. He loves to throw balls, play tug of war or just kick back and give lots of belly rubs (he also likes to invite them onto his bed at night!). We ask that you only contact us if you know your pet is good with children and has spent time with kids before. We offer a loving home and will give lots of attention and affection to your special furry family member! We are also happy to send you daily pictures and updates whilst your pup is here.

Lucy and her family have a great house and yard that would make the ideal vacation getaway for a family oriented pup. The kids grew up with their black lab, Bentley and truly miss having a good natured dog around. Lucy would prefer to cater to one dog, but is open to multiples if they come from the same home. Their yard is gated and has a wrap around high wall, her kids are fantastic with dogs, and they have a lot of open indoor space. Any pooch would be lucky to land a spot vacationing at this loving and tranquil home.

Lucy was great!
Bodie had a wonderful stay with Lucy and her family. He went on hikes, many walks, and had lots of snuggle time with her lovely kids. Can't wait to use Lucy again for our upcoming trips.
We were SO thrilled to find Lucy and her family for our chocolate lab, Moose! We were only gone for a day/night..it was a somewhat last minute trip...but anytime we ever need to find a loving sitter/home from now on Lucy will be our #1 choice. From the moment we brought Moose to meet Lucy, we just *knew* he was so happy and would be very well taken care of. We appreciated that Lucy updated us by text here and there. It was as if we just left him with our own family ☺
