About Stefanie

I am NAPPS Certified, and dog and cat first aid and CPR certified.
I take my four legged guests well-being very serious, and provide a home environment with love, exercise, playtime, and individualized attention. Your dog is part of my family and treated like my own!

My house is a cage/crate free environment and dogs are welcome in every room. I have beds set up in all rooms but I often find my visitors on the couch. I do not crate dogs unless requested by the owner and the dog brings his crate with him. Some dogs feel more comfortable sleeping in their crate from home and it is part of their routine.

I am experienced with administering medicine and caring for special needs and aging dogs. I have experience with dogs suffering from separation anxiety and go out of my way to make them feel comfortable, calm and secure.

A typical day includes supervised playtime in my fenced in backyard, and a 3-5 mile walk at Kensington, Island Lake, or Milford trail. All dogs receive a bath as needed and I will continue any basic training and potty training while the dogs are staying with me. I am home 24/7, and never leave your dog unsupervised in my backyard, or let him/her off leash during our walks. Your dog’s safety, health and well-being are my top priority. All services are included in the daily rate.

I understand that leaving your dog to enjoy a vacation can be stressful; I provide daily updates with pictures or videos and do not mind phone calls to ease the pet parents mind.

My dog's love the company of all size dogs, do not mind sharing their home, and are happy to include visitors in playtime. However, if the visitor dogs rather not join them in play and watch instead, they just continue playing with each other until our guest feels comfortable to join.

We love and welcome all dogs, from couch potatoes to rambunctious puppies, as long as they are not aggressive, and do not try eating our cats!

Stefanie was a great host. My pup felt right at home and loved his day vacation. Will definitely use Stefanie again when we need a sitter in the area.
I was in a pinch to find someone at the last minute to care for my puppy for a few days, and am so glad that Stefanie accepted the request. She was wonderful! A definite animal lover, she knows dogs and their behavior well. She was very accommodating (drop off had to be late in the evening) and went above and beyond to make sure my puppy and I felt comfortable before I left. Tucker had a blast during his "vacay" and did not want to leave his new buddies behind when it was time to go home.

Detailed text messages with updates and pictures every day were terrific. And when I picked Tucker up, Stefanie had even washed his bed and given him a bath (well, at least tried to!) I would definitely use Stefanie's services again.

I was a little nervous about leaving Kali with other than my regular sitter but I did not like the kennel atmosphere. Kali settled in pretty quickly with Stephanie's dogs and kitties. I am glad that I found DogVacay and Stephanie. Stephanie is a true animal lover and you can tell that she takes very special care of them. She sent pictures and updates every day and Kali looked very content. I think she had a great time playing with Murphy and Lenny and she was happy and clean. Stephanie went above and beyond and washed her bed and dog coat and she smelled great! I so appreciated her attention to those details. I am certain that Kali was missing them when we got home. I hope that Stephanie will be available next time I need her. So much better that a concrete kennel!
Thank you Stephanie!

Charlie had a great time! Leaving him at home with a sitter caused him anxiety--he didn't want to be left alone and would stop eating. Instead, he stayed in a pet-friendly environment with 2 other dogs, and a couple cats. Stefanie was very responsive to my concerns about Charlie.
