About Monica

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Are you looking for an alternative to a dog kennel and wish your dog could have a nice home life while you are away? I live/work in Hampton. I have seven years of veterinary technician experience, fostering experience, and in-home pet-sitting experience. I love taking care of all types of animals - especially dogs :) I will do my best to make your dog feel at home, and be calm & happy! We are particularly knowledgeable and devoted to bulldog breeds. Please read this profile summary to ensure we would be a good fit for your pup(s).

I have a fenced-in yard where we can play, and I am happy to provide one daily walk. We have a very dog-friendly neighborhood! We love walking and there's lots of places for a pup to explore. I am comfortable with giving any medications, special diets, and happy to accomodate any other special requests. We do work full-time Mon-Fri (9-5) (I'm a counselor at a school) but I can come home during my lunch break to take care of the pups.

We have an energetic boston terrier who is now rather set in her ways at over 10 years old. She does take a couple of hours to warm up and be calm around a new dog, but she's never been a problem - we just keep her seperate until she calms down, and will always supervise their time together. We used to have a french bulldog, but unfortunately he recently passed away from cancer :( We will always have a special spot and affinity for bulldogs!

Our home is completely dog-friendly. They can get on the couch, be with us in any room, and there are beds and crates available. We have a fenced in yard where they can go outside multiple times a day and we can play fetch or with the sprinkler, and a beautiful neighborhood and area to explore on walks. We are happy to feed your dog just as much/often as they're used to, to help them feel at home and comfortable (I know I get hangry after a few hours! lol). Fresh water will always be provided/available. Biscuits and Belly rubs are also included :)

We will care for your dog as our own and have lots of fun. We love sharing our space and playing and loving on your dogs. We have twin girls who are used to dogs, and no worries - we will never leave them unsupervised around your pup (we don't want them annoying your pup in any way or yanking on any ears or tails). But due to the kids we cannot accept any pups who bark excessively, show aggression in any form (food, toy, people, dogs), are escape artists, have destructive issues, or have any marking behaviors. We also ask that your pet be up-to-date on all vaccines, spayed/neutered, and be current on flea and heartworm meds, and housebroken if they are adults. To ensure the maximum attention and love they deserve, we do not watch more than two dogs at a time.

Be prepared for lots of photo updates while you are away (unless you tell me not to!) and I will treat your pet(s) as my own. If I could have 20 dogs I would, but the husband gets in the way of that (haha), so I take care of pups instead ;)

Please feel free to contact me with any future care needs or questions!

Monica was great! She took fantastic care of my fur baby. She even sent pictures and updates about how she was doing the entire vacation. Would highly recommend!
Monica went above and beyond in caring for our 10 year old lab. She was so kind and helpful in dealing with some of our lab's separation anxiety, provided tons of updates and pictures and put this dog mom's mind at ease while out of state on travel. She truly is the kindest and best!

This was our first time using a sitter and it was outstanding. Our pet was well taken care of and Monica was outstanding. I highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.
Monica, her husband Jeremy and their sweet Bella & Rocco, their pups, are wonderful! They welcomed Sophie with open arms! They made us feel totally comfortable leaving our Sophie on her very first vacation. Thank you to Jeremy for letting Sophie be your lapdog! I would definitely trust them with Sophie any time and hope to use their services again soon. Their home is lovely with a fantastic back yard and full of love! Just where you would want to leave your fur baby!

Hands down Monica is amazing with all her house guests! The boys adore her and her husband, as well as her two pups! They always come home exhausted.
Monica was fabulous They took her swimming, walking and sent me pics during the 2 wks I was away. I could tell Biscuit loved her stay. I was so very impressed and would hope she would care for biscuit again!
I really appreciated Monica! She has such an open caring spirit that is apparent as soon as you meet her. She is quite accommodating and gave our boys lots of love. Her dogs are well mannered and even though our Brutus doesn't get along with dogs larger than him, he took to her two very quickly. We received pictures of their time there and our boys came home happy and healthy. Our Watson had some potty issues (he isn't fixed yet and being around her two dogs likely brought about the need to mark) that were handled by only allowing him supervised play time. Completely acceptable treatment given the circumstance and it is generally how we handle accidents at home if he has one. Hopefully the need to mark corrects after he is neutered. We will certainly come to Monica again should we ever require boarding. Thanks Monica, you're awesome!

Great!
Monica was great with my baby boy! She has a beautiful home and took very good care of him for a week! She was flexible with me and sent regular updates. Elliot loved playing with her two dogs!
Monica is great! She took care of our pup as if he was her own. She kept us updated throughout his stay and sent tons of pictures. We felt he was safe and well taken care of the entire time. Highly recommend her!
Couldn't imagine leaving my babies with anyone else. Such a sweet and caring individual. Would highly recommend to anyone needing to leave there pets with someone they can trust.
We couldn't have been happier with Monica P!!! She was so knowledgeable about dogs, especially bullies! It's rare to find someone that good with bulldogs, as they are quite high maintenance!!

The whole experience was great, from the reservation, the meet and greet, the stay and the pick up! Very smooth. Our dogs had a great time as evidenced by the 96 pictures we received of their stay!

We will absolutely call Monica P again when we need to board our dogs. She is definitely our #1 choice! Thank you!!!

All I have to say is that I will never take my furbabies to another sitter. Monica is fantastic! They went for walks and played lots! She is VERY understanding of the bullie breed. One of my dogs even had a small blister on his paw. She cleaned it, put on neosporin and wrapped it. I was so happy that she didnt just let it go even though we were picking up in a few short hours.
