About Nathalie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have worked in the Veterinary Field for 13 plus years from Kennel Tech, Vet Tech and Receptionist. I use to work at Montgomery County Animal Shelter as the sick clinic tech but now I am a stay at home mom.

I love all types of animals. As you can see i have many different kinds of my own.

I do pet set exotics in my own home like Bunnies, Birds, Guinea Pigs, mini pigs and Reptiles etc. Please let me know if you would like me to pet sit for you and I can send you a custom quote.

I am reliable, trustworthy and honest. Your pets will get the best care when they are with me.

They will be played with, taken on walks, given baths (extra charge unless if they get muddy/dirty, i will bathe them for no charge.)

I run my house as close as i can to how you would run yours. If you kennel your dog at night and/or when you leave then i will kennel them (i do own a few different size kennels, so you don't have to bring yours if i have one available) If you do not kennel your dog then I will not kennel your dog either. I believe that if you can keep the dog in the same routine that will help them be less stress and it will kinda still feel like home.

Please feel free to bring any items you would like, beds so they can have a familiar place to sleep, their favorite toy, treats, pillows, blankets etc. I do have a ton of dog bowls so you can leave those at home if you would like. I will treat your pets like my own.

Unfortunately the male dogs that I sit have to be neutered. Females that are not fixed are okay. I have run into the problem of male dogs marking their territory in my house and I can not have that happen.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

We highly recommend Nathalie to care for your pet when you need someone to watch them. She takes excellent care of our dog, and you can tell she loves animals.
Nathalie sure came through for us in a holiday pinch! Our normally docile dog, Buckley, had such a great time with all of Nathalie's pet family and guests - he was completely worn out for the entire next day after his vacay. Nathalie provides great communication and promptness for both drop off and pickup. She paves a smooth introduction path when a new dog guest enters her home. She asks a lot of important questions and tries to keep all her pet guests within their normal home routines while they stay at her home. Thank you, Nathalie, hope to see you again soon!
This was my first time to use dog vacay. I reserved my 6 month old dog for a week. I thought this would be more ideal than a kennel at a boarding facility. There were 10 dogs (some large and aggressive) plus other animals in the home when I dropped my puppy off. I wanted a place for my dog to socialize, get TLC and be taken on walks. That was not happening here. I brought treats and toys as was suggested on most host profiles. There was no way she could have any of things, or a bed for that matter as dogs were running around in and out of the home, with the back door left open, in disarray. I dropped her there, then returned within a few hours because I felt so uncomfortable not knowing how my dog was. There are so many 5 stars for this host. Maybe this situation wasn't the norm here, but it is what I experienced.
Opa absolutely loved having her sleepover. She is already looking forward to Christmas!
I've never left my rescued American Staffordshire Terrier with anyone other than family before, so I was very hesitant leaving her with a "stranger." However, I am so impressed with Nathalie! My dog had a great time, and I really appreciated the picture updates. She had other dogs to play with and even received lots of love from her daughter. I would absolutely recommend booking with Nathalie, and if needed, I will be re-booking as well! Thank you for taking such good care of my pup! She came home very happy.
Seemed like she was overwhelmed and the first thing she told me was that she pee'd on the floor. It was my first time using this service and it wasn't as I expected.
Nathalie is great - Charlie has enjoyed his visits. I get daily photo updates just to confirm how happy he is. Thank you Nathalie.
Nathalie was prompt and friendly during pickup and drop off.
Charlie seems to have enjoyed himself with Nathalie...so much so that he is going back on Thursday for another stay. Thank you Nathalie!
I have a very old dog and she took great care of him!
Honey enjoyed her time with Nathalie and enjoyed playing with the other pups! We will be back!
My babies had a great time playing at Nathalie's. She took wonderful care of them. We will be using her again soon!
Nathalie, was extremely punctual and nice. She took care of our babies like her own. Her house was extremely clean and the dogs were definitely all well taken care of. We will definitely be dropping our babies off again with her.
Nathalie is the best. Simply put. Our dog just loves her. I will recommend her in a heartbeat.
Stella had a great time at Nathalie's playing and came back exhausted, which we love!

We appreciated Nathalie being so punctual with her communication since we needed a last minute sitter for the 4th of July weekend. She got back to us within a couple of hours after inquring and even was able to fit us in the same day for a meet and greet with Stella. Meeting her we could tell that she loves all animals!

While we were away she also sent several pictures everyday so we were not worried about Stella at all. I definitely suggest other people to use Nathalie for their pets!
This was Pipers first time away from home and I was very nervous about leaving her but Nathalie put my mind at ease by keeping me updated with messages and pictures every day. I will for sure use her again for our upcoming cruise..thanks Nathalie
Nathalie was great. Super responsive, took great care of our Mack, and was very nice to deal with.
Loved getting pictures. She seemed very happy while I was away.
Our experience with Nathalie was good and we will definitely use her again. We felt very at ease leaving our Maggie there.
I have always used a boarding facility for my fur baby, but chose to use a pet sitter this time as we were going to be gone for 10 days. It was the best decision ever! Nathalie was very attentive to my dog and sent me pictures every few days. She answered my text messages quickly. I think my dog was actually sad to leave! She also watched our guinea pig and was wonderful with him too. We will definitely be using her the next time we travel and we will be spreading the word about how wonderful she was! Thank you putting my mind at ease and for making my vacation so much more enjoyable!
Nathalie did a great job with our Mini-Schnauzer. She was very flexible and very loving towards my furry baby. A+!
She did pretty good with malakai. He is young and rambunctious and she held her own. He was so happy to us when we got him but he was worn out and slept for two days straight it seemed, so he must have had a great time. Nat sent pictures and texted me updates and made me very comfortable.
Nathalie was very patient with our husky. It was the first time she left the house for a night. Nathalie sent us pictures and texted us on how our dog was doing. Thank you for taking care of our dog.
NatHalle was great and was able to help me on very short notice. She sent me pics of Ellie while she was there and that was awesome!!! Highly recommend! !
Nathalie was great and accepted last minute!
I was grateful that Nathalie was able to accomodate my dog last minute. She was great with responding to me quickly. She was able to pick up on his quirks and she was genuinely concerned about him. In addition, she updated us with pictures every day which was great.
Nathalie was amazing with our dog. She even sent him home with a toy and it is not his favorite. I am actually about to schedule another time with her right now.
Jackson had a wonderful time. Looks forward to staying at Nathalie's.
She did a great job! Our dogs were happy when they came home. They were tired and passed out after we feed them. They had a good time.
Nathalie was great. Dropped Max off on Thanksgiving with no issue and he took to her right away. Picked him up on Saturday and what I thought was funny was that when I've boarded him at an actual boarding facility in the past, he can't get out of there fast enough. I can't even sign him out and he's pulling me toward the door and barking. When I picked him up from Nathalie, he was none of that. Think he would've been fine if I stopped by to say "hi" and left him there, which made me feel like he was taken care of much better than at a boarding facility. Got home and he's been passed out all day so think his new friends wore him out. This was my first experience with DogVacay and I will definitely use it, and Nathalie, again.
Very knowledgeable with great dane breeds!
Nathalie took great care of both my and my mom's dog! They stayed with her for 2 weeks and came back bathed and looking well fed and cared for! Thank you for caring for our sweet pups! :)
We love leaving Spot with Nathalie...he always seems to enjoy being there!
Nathalie was able to help me out last minute for a funeral. She is a great host and always willing to help me out!
Our dog loved his stay!
Nathalie took good care of our lab Titus. I would highly recommend her to watch your dog on your next vacation.
When we booked a 7 day cruise I was anxious about finding someone to care for our two dogs knowing I had to 100% trust someone since we were going "off the grid." Nathalie was great, I was comforted by her experience and knowledge. It was obvious to me that my fur babies were loved and cared for. When the need arises, we have found our go-to dog sitter.
Nathalie was awesome! Her and Eric took great care of our fur baby while we were away! We got photos and updates on how our pup was doing. When we picked him up, I think he wanted to go back with them! I highly recommend Nathalie!
Nathalie was very good to my dog. She updated me with videos of him playing and having a good time. Her home was very clean and a back yard for playtime. She was flexible with dropping and picking my dog up which was great! My dog played with other dogs the entire weekend....I feel like I left him with a friend and not a stranger.
I really like Nathalie. We had a problem thou when my fur-babies stayed with her which eventually got resolved. I asked her that if she is going to leave, just leave my dogs into the bathroom or inside the house. But unfortunately, that didn't happen. So, when they saw a strayed cat in their fence they ran after that cat, broke their fence and eventually got out from their fence.
My other dog has a problem with other male dogs also (he become aggressive). She continuously assured me via text the whole entire time that everything was going great between the other dog that was booked on their last day which I felt at ease and I was thankful for her about it. But then she cancelled my upcoming reservation telling me she can't have other aggressive dog and breaking their fence in their house. I thought that she handled them very well according to her prior text messages. I think that the breaking of the fence could have prevented if she didn't leave them alone.
Overall, I would recommend her. She is very nice and accomodating.
Our Spot loves to go to Nathalie's. She is very knowledgeable and handles the dogs in her care very well. We highly recommend Nathalie.
Nathalie was a great help on a last minute request when my uncle passed away and I had to leave town. Chibi always comes back happy and healthy every time she stays with them!
Nathalie took great care of my fur baby, Lulu. She asked all the right questions about Lulu like what she liked, how and where she slept and was concerned with not starting any bad habits for Lulu when she got back home, ie..getting up on the couch or bed. I received a couple photo updates while we were on vacation, which was very comforting. Nathalie's house was warm and inviting and I appreciated the way she took her time introducing her dog to mine. Also, our booking was last minute due to some changes right before we left and she was extemely accommodating to the situation. After we got back to pick Lulu up, she also informed me that Lulu did really well, was a very polite puppy and that she wasn't eating much while we were gone so she did her best mixing a little of her food with ours to see if that might have helped. That was great to hear she was so concerned. Lulu seemed very happy and has been acting the same as before she left. She is happy to be home but wasn't acting "off" or anything, so I know she had a good time. Thank you Nathalie so much for taking such good care of Lulu, we really appreciate it and would recommend you to anyone we know who would need a puppy sitter!
She did a great job of watching Chibi when I was in the process of moving from Pittsburgh to Texas. Keep up the great work!
Nathalie is GREAT!! I will definitely use her services again!
The reservation and stay was great!
Nathalie was more than accommodating. We had some circumstances where we needed a pet sitter quick, and Nathalie saved us. Her home is filled with appreciation and love for pets and I felt like I was dropping our puppy off at a friends house.

She is an extremely knowledgeable pet owner and her veterinary experience shows. She was able to answer questions I had on our new puppy and made me feel at ease on some questions I had.

I will definitely be using Nathalie in the future.
As usual Nathalie and her family were great. We are convinced our dog sulks for a couple days after we pick her up because she misses her buddies.
Wonderful, very easy to deal with, very close to my location. And Ollie made himself at home right away
Sadie had a great stay with Nathalie and her family. Thanks again so much!
Thanks so much for the great job with Jackson. The pictures showed he had a great time.
Nathalie was very welcoming to Gracie. My dog is a bit spoiled, so I'm never sure if she will behave when I'm not there. If there were any problems, Nathalie didn't let on. When I picked her up it was clear she had been absorbed into their family life with reports of good play time with their dog, the discovery of a new favorite toy from their stash and quality cuddle time on the couch at night. Gracie was very happy... I'm very happy, and thank Nathalie for taking such good care of her.
We are thoroughly pleased with the love and care our Spot received while with Nathalie. Since this was our first time to board with her, we had a "meet and greet" prior to his stay. He is an older, large breed dog and we wanted everyone to feel comfortable with the arrangement. He 'took' to his new surroundings immediately. During his stay, it was nice to receive a video showing Spot and Nathalie's dog playing and having a good time. We believe he received the best possible attention and care while he was with her. We will book with her again and highly recommend her to anyone else.
Birdie had a great time! She was well cared for while we were away.
Nathalie had the biggest backyard I have seen for a dogvacay host, plus it had shade. The dogs were free to stay inside too. Good communication and a great experience.
This was our dogs third stay with Nathalie and her family - that in itself should tell you what we think of them. Nathalie provides a caring home for our dog with plenty of chances to socialize not only with people but other animals. If you need a place for your dog that you can trust I highly recommend Nathalie and her family.
Toby had so much fun that he did not even want to come home. Obviously he was well taken care of! Thank you so much for this service.
Nathalie and her family always do a great job taking care of Mouse. The first time we left Mouse with them was just for a couple days and I'd call frequently to check on her. This time we left Mouse with them for 6 days and didn't need to call because we knew she was in good hands. Mouse also has the advantage of getting socialized with Nathalies family and dog. We give Nathalie our highest recommendation.
My dog is so happpy to stay with Nathalie and her family - I feel totally comfortable leaving him there. I will always use them anytime I need to go out of town! They are fabulous!
Molly had a great visit and had plenty of animal friends to play with while she stayed with Nathalie. Nathalie was very kind and responded quickly with updates on Molly while we were gone.
I left my dog over the weekend with Nathalie. She had so much fun and played the entire time with her dog. They both are the same age and are both very active. She was so happy but extremely tired. I was glad to know she was not lonely and that she maybe even had a better time than we did. ;)
We will definitively be using Nathalie again.
Nathalie was great. Her dog and mine got along well. Mouse seemed quite happy when I picked her up and she had some great play mates. Will definitely board with Nathalie if we have to go out of town again. Don
Nathalie and Eric were great - we felt totally comfortable leaving our dog over the weekend. They are obviously animal lovers and took great care of our dog. Would highly recommend them!
Both Taz and Athena seemed to have a good time. Don't think will ever go back to boarding them at a kennel. Nice having piece of mind they are being looked after in someone's home.
I feel very good when leaving Dexter. He seems to come home excited. I will definitely use her again.
Sophie seemed very happy and much like her normal self when I got back. I'm taking this to mean she had a good stay and Nathalie eased her separation anxiety.
We have a very active Vizsla named Nina. She has stayed a few times now with Nathalie and loves going to her house. Nina gets a lot of attention and plenty of toys to play with. She even got taken out on a jog while staying at Nathalie's house! We will definitely keep using Nathalie as our pet sitter.
Nathalie was a wonderful host for our puppies. She was responsive and caring about any questions or concerns we may have had and even, at the last minute, did a follow vet visit with Jax when his cornea got scratched two days prior to our departure and continued his eye drops for the additional days of treatment. We came home to two very happy and well treated puppies. We were out of the country for our vacation and even received updates and photos through our email while we traveled.
