About Sprice

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been with Dog VaCay since December, 2012 and I Love It!
I have many regular doggie clients, so please check with me even if I show that I am booked. My room mate is a Vet Tech which enhances what I offer and the dogs are never left alone!
Let me ask you a question:
Do you get stressed at the thought of leaving your dog in a concrete kennel, or even stuck in a room with a TV and no windows? Well, stress no more!
My home is completely set up for dogs with plenty of room to run and play in a completely fenced in property (3 acres) an inner backyard fenced in for night and lots of frisbees, balls, kiddie pool and dog toys, dog beds and doggie doors
'home made' chicken jerky and baked cookies. I have a first aid kit on the premises. and a great wooded area to romp during the day and a big pool for extra swim summer fun time!
2 gentle horses used to dogs
30 years of training and taking care of my own dogs and other dogs
I suggest a MEET N GREET first. You can meet me and I can meet you and your dog/s. It is good to screen the dogs for size and temperament. I take small and medium dogs. Large dogs only if I know them. I cannot take a dog that I cannot control. Some are just too large or too heavy or both. I I like to limit the amount of dogs that stay each night. Please try to have your dog recently bathed and please have his or her nails clipped. Thank you in advance.
Come and let your dog have
Fun in the Country!!

Our dogs spent Thanksgiving with Sprice and it could not have gone better. They had a wonderful time with her and we received daily pictures so we could see what they had been up to. Drop off and pick up we're a breeze. Sprice was great to work with.
What a wonderful place , nice host and spacious yard for the dogs to run and play in .... its worth the drive
Sprice was amazing! I had a million questions and she worked with me beautifully. She sent several pictures each day we were away and treated my dogs like her own. We will definitely use her again soon!
Highly recommend Sprice! Our Sadie loved her and we loved that we got updates and pictures/videos of Sadie everyday! This was the first time I could actually enjoy a vacation because I knew Sadie was having just as much fun! She treats each dog like her own. Great choice for dogs that don't do well in a kennel environment! Can't wait to book with Sprice again! We might have to do play dates in between because I think Sadie already misses it over there! :)

Sprice is so easy to work with. Our golden retriever had a great time playing with other dogs while we were on vacation. We really enjoyed getting pictures and videos of her playing in the large yard. Knowing she was in a home that is so dog friendly is great. Thank you Sprice!

Excellent
See my long, complete review for details about how much we looooooooooove Sprice! I love seeing how happy Smoochie and Chancie are in the videos you send. They really have the time of their lives at your house. Thanks so much for wearing them out! (and that is VERY hard to do!)
Read More...
REALLY appreciate that you are helping us work with Chancie on her training. Since she was with you we definitely notice a difference in her jumping up on us much less frequently. Thanks so much for working with her. You are the BEST!
Chancie got to go to Sprice's on her own, without Smoochie, and she didn't miss a beat. Loved every bit. So excited she even jumped out the half-open car window as we were driving up to the house! (she's never done THAT before!!!) Thank you for loving her, Sprice. And thank you for working with her on her "behavior" and being so patient with our crazy ball of energy!

I think Smoochie and Chancie were actually bummed to see me when I came to pick them up---hahaha! They never want to leave Sprice! And they are so tired for days afterward---they play their hearts out on their dog vacays at Sprice's!
We want to keep Sprice all to ourselves! Smoochie and Chancie have the time of their lives on their "vacations" at Sprice's!
Wonderful, as always!!! Thank you Sprice!!!
***I started writing my long review of Sprice under another stay, but I ran out of room, so this is a continuation!***
As I was saying....my dogs freak out when they know we are driving up Sprice's driveway because they are SO EXCITED to be there! They know they will be spoiled at Sprice's--endless love; dog toys EVERYWHERE; cozy dog beds all over the place; the freedom to romp around the whole house, the relaxing covered porch, or huge yard at will; doggy friends to play with; and even homemade nutritious doggy treats that Sprice frequently gives them. We also love that Sprice is great about communicating with pictures and messages throughout their stay. Another one of our favorite parts about our dogs going to Sprice is the fact that they get TONS of exercise and play when they are there. It is nonstop, so much so that Smoochie and Chancie come home completely exhausted for days afterward. It is great, and shows us just how much fun they were having at Sprice's. Honestly, if Sprice ever decides to close her business I will cry. You will not go wrong by using Sprice to care for your fur-baby. She will become part of your family, as she has ours.

We have been using Sprice for our 2 dogs for over 2 years now. We found her through a random Dog Vacay search and we feel so fortunate and grateful. Sprice is a God-send! She truly has a gift for loving, pampering, and caring for pets. Her property is a pet oasis. She has acres of fenced-in horse property and the dogs have free-range, even in-and-out of the house through a dog door at their leisure. The dogs have their own bedroom together for napping and at night (they are also free to go with Sprice if they wish). There is no forced crating unless requested by owner. Sprice is so flexible and nurturing. She also has a friend who is a vet-tech who is often on site working with Sprice and the dogs. We have 2 dogs, Smoochie (5 yr old 15 lb Chiweenie) and Chancie (3 yr old 35 lb terrier mix), who absolutely ADORE Sprice and love going to her. We have used Sprice for all of our vacations within the past 2 years, ranging from overnights to 3 weeks at a time. Every time we drive to drop off the dogs at Sprice's they know when we are getting close to her street and house and start going wild--tails wagging, jumping all over the place, excitedly whining and squealing. When we finally drive up her driveway, forget it!--they are going BANANAS!
***I don't have room to write everything I want to about Sprice in the area I am given for a single review, so I am going to continue within another stay's review....to be continued....***

Sprice was very good to our young puppy. We were afraid that his routine would be broken - but she kept the routine with him and worked on things we were working on with him. The updates from her daily helped to make our trip enjoyable. He came home and slept for a day - he was so busy with so much to do there. She is patient and understands our furry companions for sure. Not sure he was ready to leave when we picked him up.

We contacted Sprice last minute and she was kind enough to respond quickly. Lucky had a great time. Sprice was a kind and attentive sitter. Lucky came home, with some new toys, treats and having made some new friends
Sprice was awesome! Kept us informed with pics and videos daily and took great care of our baby boy. Our pup had so much fun and came home worn out!
Cody had fun!
Sprice was very friendly and Charlie loved his stay with her. He had a great time while there in the large fields and with the other dogs. He came back in perfect health. I would definitely use her again.
Bailey had a lot of fun with playmates, brought home a dog bed and toys. We received pics and videos daily as well a missing you text the next day. We loved that our dog had a home environment
My dogs stay with Sprice every time we travel. She is the only host I found around here who I trust to watch my dogs. She is easy to work with and her house is a true dog resort. I feed both of my dogs raw diet and follow holistic approach to care for them. Sprice has a great deal of knowledge in this area as well as dog behavior. She made pickups and drop-offs easy even when she has a large pack to watch. She is excellent at managing the dogs. My dogs made so many friends while staying at her house, because she has many repeat customers. She has become a great friend to me. We even come back for a play date sometimes to spend time with her and so the boys can play with their friends. Two of my dogs have very different personalities and both of them enjoy spending time at her house. They get both quiet time and vigorous play. She keeps me posted on how they are doing during their stay even when she is busy: I love that. I will definitely recommend Sprice to my friends.

Sprice is the most dog loving and caring person I ever met. I feel so comfortable leaving my little Youpi with her. Thank you Sprice!!!
Sprice was wonderful! Incredibly responsive, super nice and seemed to truly care about our pups. She even sent our female Lab home with a toy. She made our vacation even better, knowing we didn't have to worry about our dogs. We will be using her services again. Thanks for everything, Sprice!

Sprice is a wonderfully dog sitter. My dogs were actually really happy every time I was dropping them off at her house. I would definitely use her services again.
Thank you Sprice for taking such good care of Rusty!!! He loved your beautiful, spacious fenced in yard!
Sprice provided outstanding care for our dog, Marley. She kept us up to date and sent photos. It is clear that she really liked Marley and Marley liked her. She is a delightful person to deal with. She was understanding when a delayed flight kept us from picking Marley up at the agreed upon time. We highly recommend her without reservation.

My dogs had such a great time with Sprice. She offers her home for the dogs to rest and play. She doesn't have an ' at home kennel' but a wonderful enviroment for the dogs to enjoy their stay. She sent me videos and photos all week so I could see them having fun. She also gave the medications my dogs require. Thank you Sprice for loving my dogs!! We plan to always use Sprice!!

Sprice was absolutely terrific with our dogs while we were on vacation. Not only is her house lovely and set up for dogs, but she has a great yard, several pools and sprinklers for every dog size. She went above and beyond to make sure each dog was getting the right treatment. She sent us a lot of videos and pictures of everyone playing. This was the first vacation we felt completely relaxed about leaving our dogs at someone else's house. Sprice is now going to be our permanent dog sitter!

Both dogs had a great time! Sprice sent pictures during their stay and keep us informed on how they were doing. Will be sending them back to Sprice : )
I don't ususally leave reviews, but the care my dog received with Sprice D definitely warrants an exception. I think my doberman's stay with her really was like a happy vacation. So much space to run, and doggy friends to play with. As I write this I have a picture in my head comparing the awsome stay she actually had to one of her sitting in a Kennel/cage waiting to be picked up by her family. The two pictures could not be more different. The only drawback is that I think my dog Ziva might be sad to have left. Sprice says they leave tired, but I think it may be a combination of tired and sad. Will absolutely bring my dog here again!

Sprice was wonderful with Percy! She took such good care of him, sent pictures and updates, he came home with toys. She was also so sweet to my children while we were dropping off our puppy, letting them know what he would be doing all day and welcoming him into her home. I cannot say enough good things, Percy didn't even want to leave :) I highly recommend her to anyone and will be telling all my friends!! I will use her services again & again!!

Sprice is a fantastic host! She goes above and beyond in taking care of your furry family member. She sent me pictures and messages to let me know how my dog Lady was doing. It was like Lady was on her own vacation - she got special homemade treats, got to sleep in bed, had a huge, huge, yard to run around in and got lots of attention. It was so nice to be able to drop her off and have complete faith and trust in the person watching her. Lady can't wait to go back and visit Sprice soon.

Sprice was amazing! Our dogs Lola and Max had a great time, she spoiled them and gave them a lot of love. I'm glad we found Sprice!
We dropped Gus off with Sprice for Spring Break and if he could talk he would probably have a lot to say about all the friends he met and all the fun he had! Sprice's home is perfect for dogs? Large fenced in yard lots of doggie beds! I heard he played a lot and he was exhausted when we brought him home! I would use her again and recommend to anyone in need of a sitter!

My German Shepherd puppy definitely enjoyed her boarding experience at Sprice's home. There were plenty of toys to play with, numerous bedding for them to nap and rest in, and a cute doggy door to the fenced back yard. In addition, Sprice is very friendly and a great host. I can tell that she has a passion for dogs and I will be taking my puppy to her whenever I am going out of town.

Sprice did a great job hosting our yellow lab Dexter. she has a nice fenced yard and Dexter enjoyed playing with other dogs while we were on vacation. she stayed in touch with us during our trip and sent several updates, picture included. we recommend her for your dog vacay!

Sprice is FANTASTIC!!! I first took Winston to her over a year ago, and since then have brought him several times a month just to get some good play time and every time I go out of town. I recently moved and one of the hardest parts of moving has been leaving Sprice. Winston misses her and her special home, and I miss her as well! I HIGHLY recommend Sprice's services to anyone interested! She is extremely accommodating, loves the dogs, and provides a safe, happy, and free environment for them.

Sprice is a great host. My dog Lexi came home happy and a little exhausted from all the playing. She was very well taken care of, and even made some new friends. If you need a safe and worm home away for your dog Sprice is a very good choice.
As usual, Sprice was nothing short of spectacular... Like a kid not wanting to leave summer camp, our dog was happy to see us after being gone a week but she would have been more than happy to have sent us home and stayed with Sprice and the pack for another week. It must be the home made treats!!!

My husband and I just picked up our two standard poodles, Dakota and Cooper, after returning from our 10 day trip. We were so happy with Sprice! There is nothing better than not needing to worry about your puppies while away from home. Her home and yard were perfect for our roudy pups to play, relax and just be dogs. Days were spent relaxing inside or outside on the lawn. Nightime was cuddle time! Sprice also sent us several updates and pictures showing how content they were and everyday activites I'm sure they would have been happy to stay a few more days!
No doubt about it, she will be called the next time we have to leave our puppies behind... their home away from home. Thank you Sprice!

We have left our precious pup with Sprice several times and have ALWAYS been pleased! It is so evident that Sprice loves the dogs! We have a very active bird dog that loves people and is very affectionate. Every time we've dropped our dog off with Sprice, she's been thrilled to see Sprice and happy to be back in her home. Sprice's place is also doggie heaven! There is tons of fenced in acreage for the dogs to run around and play. It truly is a vacation for the dogs as well!

We were nervous about leaving our 6 month old puppy, Marley with someone else while we went on vacation. Thankfully we found Sprice and are so happy that we did. Marley was able to stay in her lovely home with her and also had other dogs to play with the entire time. She has doggie doors everywhere leading out into a beautiful large yard . Such a difference from a boarding facility! We appreciated the pictures and updates she sent through out the week. Marley was tired from a week of playing and seemed very content. We will definitely use her again!

Sprice has a great property for dogs. Lots of space to run and play! She was so kind to keep our baby, Cody, while we were house hunting on the opposite coast. Cody had lots of fun playing with the other pups. He has napped so much since coming home! :)

Once again, our pup came home happy and tired! Sprice had 3 other dogs that weekend and they all seemed to have a ball playing together. Definitely a good experience for our "only child"
I was a little nervous about leaving our puppy for the first time. A great sign was when he did not want to leave our meet & greet - I knew right away he would LOVE it there. While we were away I really appreciated the daily texts, photos and videos assuring us he was doing great. Sprice takes great care of all of her guests and that really shows. Aspen had a blast playing with the other dogs. We will always go back to "Camp Sprice"!

Our pup had a great time with Sprice! Sprice even brought over another puppy that she thought would be a great playmate for ours, and they had a ball running around and playing. Reagan came back very tired and happy!
Spice was a great find for our dog Pebbles. We were very concerned about leaving her for such a long time. However, Spice sent pictures and notes and kept us informed. Pebbles seemed to enjoy playing with the other dogs. Will definitely use her again.

My four furkids had such a blast with Sprice! She made special accommodations for my two escape artist huskies, and she opened her home as if my kids were hers. They stayed for a week and they came home just as exhausted as we did. I will most definitely use Sprice / DogVacay again and I will (and have) recommended the service to anyone I meet that is looking for boarding or regular playcare for their furkids.

We really appreciated Sprice sending photos and updates on how Katie was adjusting.
Katie seemed to do fine with the other dogs. The experience gave her an opportunity to develop socialization with other dogs which she had not done well in the past.
It is obvious that Sprice cares alot about every dog. She even makes them homemade treats.

I was so impressed with how Sprice made sure each dog got the attention he/she needed when we dropped Scooby off. You can tell she truly loves all dogs. Scooby was very content when we got him home so I know he had lots of fun. She has made her house so comfortable for dogs I would even love to stay there! I love that Scooby did not have to sleep in a kennel as he has had to at other places. She makes sure each dog is as comfortable as possible. Scooby will definitely stay with Sprice from now on.

My two mini goldendoodles had a blast at Sprice's place! She was thorough in gathering details about each of them, their needs, temperament, etc., so I felt completely comfortable leaving my furry babies in her care. We received pictures of them during their stay and the dogs actually looked like they were smiling! Penny and Sawyer were excited to see us when arrived to pick them up, but I can't say they were happy to leave Sprice's doggie paradise. I highly recommend Sprice!

Julian had a great nineteen day stay with Sprice. It was such a relief to leave him with such a capable person. Besides being in good hands he had a wonderful time wandering the very large fenced area and non-stop play and companionship with the other dogs there. I left Julian for an extended stay at a doggie daycare last year and wasn't happy with the limited human interaction. With Sprice he got plenty of interaction. I felt comfortable leaving Julian for such a long stay knowing he was getting such wonderful care. He came home with much better manners and socialization, I could tell Sprice had worked with him. I will definitely leave Julian with Sprice again.

Our dogs enjoyed their vacation very much and that enabled us to relax and enjoy our vacation. The dogs have never been away from us and it was a very stressful decision. However it was the right decision. Our dogs loved her and were treated like her family. A good experience for them and for us. Will use her again when we need to be out of town!!

What a wonderful vacation my two dogs had this spring! This home away from home was perfect for my girls, and Sprice is so good to them. I received texts and pictures, even video of the dogs playing. They played so hard, it was several days before they got back into their usual antics. Oh, and my vacation was made that much more enjoyable, knowing the girls were safe, happy, and having fun.
Thanks again Sprice!

My husband and I left our two fairly big and sometimes rowdy dogs with Sprice while we went on our honeymoon and could not be happier with the care they received! Sprice sent us lots of great photo updates of the pups snoozing or playing and enjoying themselves and when we went to pick them up we could just see how happy they'd been! Sprice really cared for them just like they were her own and they got spoiled rotten, which we love. We wanted them to have a vacation, too and they definitely did. They got special treats, lots of play time, and even got to sleep on the bed, which is a treat even at home! We're so happy to have found Sprice! Now whenever we need to go away we'll know the dogs get to have a vacation, too, instead of staying in a kennel. They got one on one personal attention and absolutely loved Sprice and her home! Our boy, Pilot, even complained some when we drove off! I'll definitely recommend her to all my fur-parent friends and we'll certainly be bringing our fur-kids to her again!

We just picked our dog, Houla, up today after her week long stay with Sprice. I am soooo happy I found Sprice! She was wonderful with Houla! I received daily pics and updates. Houla spent her days playing with other dogs, running around the horses, and eating homemade dog treats. I am no longer nervous about leaving Houla when we go out of town. I will never use another place to board my dogs as long as Sprice is around.

Sprice was awesome and so accommodating! She sent text and email updates to let me know how the dogs were doing. Tons of space to run around and toys to play with, I know Lucy and Hogan were in puppy paradise while they were there. I will definitely use her again!

We are so glad we found Sprice! Our dog is 12-years-old, and she was always very stressed staying at boarding facilities. Sprice has a very warm and caring nature with Maddy and gave her the personal attention she needed. We know Maddy really enjoyed her stay and we will definitely be asking Sprice to watch her whenever we go away.

We are just sure that Junebug loved staying with Sprice! She was able to wander in and out of the house, and there was plenty of fenced-in space where she could play. Sprice also has a lot of doggy beds and toys for the dogs to play with. We felt very relaxed having her with such a loving person. Thank you, Sprice! Junebug will definitely be back!

WOW! I almost don't want to give a great review because I want to keep Sprice all to myself!!!

Seriously...Sprice exceeded our expectations, she is super friendly and her property is amazing. Her property has fenced in area's big enough for large dogs to play for days.

We will use Sprice every chance we get when we go out of town...maybe even just to go play!

It is the first time that we leave Lady for a few days and find her back happy to see us but not so thrilled to have to leave her temporary home. Sprice's house is dog paradise... from doggie doors to step carpets to dog proof fencing. Lady had a great time. The 2 horses are dog friendly and entertained her as well... We received pictures and reports regularly. Thank you!
