DOGVACAY-INSURED HOST SINCE 2013.
"Hosting a customized vacay for pet parents who travel and doggie daycare for pups who need a little more."
This host DOES NOT participate in the "$5 Holiday Increase."
Currently booked 11/22 to 12/10, 12/13 to 12/19, and 12/22 to 1/2.
House sitting doesn't allow me to simultaneously care for pets at a 2nd location.
Having the travel bug myself, I can appreciate the importance of securing a loving host with whom our pets will be well-kept around the clock.
LONG-TERM WELCOME. SHORT-NOTICE OK.

With my home base remaining in beautiful NW Bradenton, Florida, I'm also available for house & pet sitting nationwide! During the Easter, Summer & Christmas holidays, services can be reserved throughout the Lower 48 States!! Never a fee for house or pet sitting outside the state of Florida, I, a member of the Sharing Economy, graciously accept payment in the form of new travel experiences.
AVAILABLE TO NEW CLIENTS!!!
Non-smoking house & pet sitter travels without pets to care for non-smoking homes with or without pets.
~ BOTH NATIONALLY & LOCALLY ~
Sitting overnight with your dog in his or her own home maintains their absolute comfort while you’re away. Feeding, care & companion options are also available for your cat, bird, farm, exotic, cage or aquarium pets at home. Sleep schedule, eating habit, medication, exercise & interaction is without disruption. My meals and personal care items are not your responsibility. Laundry, dishes, mail, trash, lights, pool, plants & yard, and routine household maintenance & upkeep are also tended to during the assignment. Constant activity keeps the home safe from predators while daily monitoring keeps pipes and appliances in check.
A lifelong pet owner, having satisfied hundreds of reservations with several repeat requests, I'm experienced & comfortable with administering meds (Subq, topical, eyes, ears and oral), pre-op & post-op pets, and visits with the vet.

AVAILABILITY* changes quickly (dates fill FAST). Vacays are booked on a first come, first confirmed basis. Those reserved via DogVacay are accepted & given priority over verbal, text or email requests. Ask for my GOOGLE calendar where pet parents can view my activity. Please contact me directly with any questions as each service affects DogVacay's online calendar differently.
HINT: DogVacay's online calendar shows "Booked" once 3 pets are confirmed for the same day.
-->It may appear I'm "Booked" when, in fact, I might be scheduled to walk three dogs on the same day but for only one hour.
-->DogVacay's online calendar might reflect "Available" or "1 Spot Left" while I'm house sitting with only one or two pets but this is a service that doesn't allow me to travel far or stay overnight at a second location simultaneously.
*Boarding services remain available to familiar guests, only, at this time.
NOTE FROM THE PRODUCT TEAM (11/14/2016)
"The calendar that is shown on a host's profile, both on the app and the desktop, will only reflect Boarding services. Sitting services will not reflect on the boarding calendar that guests see. Our Product Team is aware of the issues that can arise from this design flaw and they are working on a fix for this so that we will be able to see all services on our proper calendars."
Different from kennels and commercial facilities, you'll have the opportunity to meet who will be caring for your pet during the vacay. If there is a special requirement, concern, or request, just bring it to my attention as I'm flexible and happy to work with you in meeting your pet's needs.
Lengthier vacays are divided into 14-day reservations and payment plans are welcome. However, a vacay must be paid in full prior to check-in.
PAW PERKS are always available! Ask about the variety of savings offered for an assortment of travel circumstances & vacay styles, or request updates by email for photos and special offers!
