About Emily

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Treat your pup to a relaxing getaway, where he or she will be the center of attention! We only accept one dog at a time so your pup will receive personal care. Although it's not the right time for us to have a pup of our own, we love hosting our pup visitors!

Dogs of all shapes and sizes love hanging out and staying active in Lakeview while their owners are away! I will give them lots of love, cuddles and walks! I am available in the morning and evenings on the weeknights, and throughout the weekend. Your dog will have a great time and you can rest assured your best bud is in a safe, happy home.

My husband and I live in a spacious 2 bedroom, dog-friendly condo in the heart of Lakeview. We will visit the lake, go on at least 3 walks per day (happy to accommodate normal routines!) and be sure to send lots of photos and updates while your dog is with us.

Don't hesitate to reach out with questions - looking forward to meeting your pup!

My dog, Rocky, loves staying with Emily. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to board their dog. I sometimes worry that Rocky will not want to leave with me when I go to pick her up.
Emily was great. My dog walt was well cared for, i could tell by all of the photos of him smiling i received. I would highly recommend them.
Thank goodness for DogVacay! I needed a solution for an upcoming trip and we refused to board him. This solved our problem and provided us with peace of mind. Emily and Mike treated Furby like gold! We were very impressed with the amount of photos and updates they provided to us every day. I will certainly be using them any time we go out of town. Trustworthy, reliable, and gracious. Highly recommend!
Prior to our dogs' vacay, we have never used a pet sitting service before and were really nervous about doing so. Having Emily and her husband Mike as our hosts made the decision to leave our dogs with them so much easier! They were very accommodating and understanding of our anxieties and took every step to make us (and our pups!) as comfortable with the process as possible. Emily was also able to give us a custom quote because we had two dogs staying, and it was very reasonable! If you have never left your dogs with anyone before and are nervous about it, definitely go with Emily and Mike! We are so happy we did and will definitely be using them again in the future!!
Our yellow lab enjoyed his stay at Emily's. She and her husband were very nice and their home was clean, neat and dog friendly. Emily sent me photos and updates about how Alfred was doing in her care. I will definitely book with her again!
Awesome sitters! Bernie had a great time! Would definitely use them again!
Emily was great! We used her for a week while we were traveling for our wedding and felt really comfortable leaving our dog with her. She sent us pictures every night, which we looked forward to! We definitely plan on using Emily again in the future.
Emily and mike were phenomenal caretakers for my old pup! We looked forward to the pics each day and loved not having to worry about her care while on vacation! I will definitely be a repeat booker with them!
Emily and her fiance were the perfect couple to watch my dog. They sent me photo's during my dogs stay that reassured me that she was having fun and in good hands. I will absolutely look to book with Emily again when I need to go out of town!
Emily and Mike are awesome. I'd never used DogVacay, and I'm so glad I connected with Emily. Emily was really accommodating with a meet-and-greet as well as the drop-off/pick-up times. She sent pics of Wrigley while I was away, and I felt he was in such good hands. I would highly recommend Emily and Mike, and I will definitely use them again.
As always, Emily and Mike are the best. Sophie loves staying with them and we try to book with them whenever we can.
Emily was great! Very flexible and very responsive! We had a great experience.
Emily was very sweet, she made Louie feel very comfortable in her home. She sent me pictures kept me updated on his stay. We both were very happy that Emily was out sitter. Can't wait to book her again!!
Emily was great. Walt the dog was in great hands , I even got photos of my dog hanging in the couch which was very nice and comforting. I highly recommend them .
Emily and her fiancé were so nice and friendly; I felt very comfortable leaving my dog James with them for 4 nights/5 days. I showed up a little bit later than anticipated both at drop off and pick up, but they were really understanding. They gavJamesim his medicine every day and he seemed to get plenty of exercise because he was worn out when I brought him home! I was so happy to receive pictures every d and they had nothing but nice things to say about my very energetic (sometimes a bit wild) pup. I would highly recommend Emily and will definitely keep her in mind when I need a dog sitter in the future. ay
Emily was a great host! She was incredibly flexible with the meet & greet, drop off and pick up and very responsive communication-wise before and during our dog's stay. We knew our dog was in great hands with Emily & her husband, which let us enjoy our vacation without worry. We are definitely booking with her again soon :)
We had a very good experience with Emily. She is very caring with her approach, wanting to meet my dog Bailey and having her at the vacation home before my trip. She wanted to make sure that my dog would be comfortable at her location and make sure that I approved as well.

Emily is very flexible on drop off and pick up times and sent me daily updates and pictures as to how Bailey was doing. She was also very good at making sure that Bailey was walked and played with, just making Bailey feel like she was at home.

All in all, I would very much recommend Emily and look forward to booking my next vacay with her.
It was another great stay for our dog, Fitz, with Emily and Mike!! He always gets so excited when we arrive and comes home tired and happy. Emily does such a great job of sending us pictures each day so that we can be a part of what he's doing there. We will definitely be sending him back again!
Once again, outstanding service! Emily and Mike are the most caring and responsible dog sitters we know.
As expected, Deekon loved his stay with Emily and Mike. They are the first place I look when I need someone to watch my pup!
Emily and Mike were great hosts to my dog Lucy, a first time DogVacay-er! They were flexible with their schedule to accommodate drop-off and pick-up, provided her with lots of attention and walks, and were great about sending photo updates throughout the week that made me feel much better about leaving my new pup! Their house was well-suited for a dog, with hardwood floors and a lot of space. Thank you, Emily and Mike -- Lucy looks forward to hopefully staying with you all again!
Meeko seemed to have enjoyed himself during his time here, as he ate all of his food, which he never does while he stays away. Apartment was super clean and cozy, and the daily pics were much appreciated. Will definitely book with Emily again!
Diego is always unhappy to be away from home, but I think that Emily and Mike do a great job of making him feel welcome! I always appreciate their updates, and Diego comes back happy and safe, which is the best thing I can ask for when I'm out of town. Thank you both so much!
Emily and Mike are wonderful. We left our dog Streeter with them for a full 2 weeks as my fiance and I got married and went on our honeymoon afterwards. Our dog seemed so much healthier and happier with them than the last time we left for 2 weeks and kept her at a boarding shelter. They are great, they send pictures everyday, and are true dog lovers!
As always, Emily and Mike took great care of our dog Sophie. Sophie clearly enjoys her stays with Emily and we think they are outstanding care givers.
Emily and her boyfriend were great from start to finish! Quick to reply, happy to set up a meet and greet, and flexible with my drop off and pick up times. Sammie is a little nervous, but she seemed comfortable and to be having a great time during her stay. And the pictures were adorable! Will definitely use Emily again!
Once again, we were very pleased with the care Emily and Mike gave to Sophie while we were gone for an extended trip. Sophie always comes home a happy dog. I can't say enough good things about our experiences with Emily and Mike. They are devoted dog lovers and we will continue to use them whenever possible.
Emily is always great--flexible, and takes great care of Diego!
Everything went extremely smooth. Emily and her boyfriend were very kind, and my pup had a great time!
Emily and Mike are great hosts. Very accomodating and happy people. Our dog has special needs of which was not a problem for them. We received a fun photo each day. It always helps to know your dog is in great hands when you are away.
Emily and Mike were so great and very easy to work with. They were extremely understanding of my flight schedule and flexible with my early drop off and late pick up times. Gus can be a handful at times, but I always felt reassured that they had things under control. They sent photo updates each day and always responded quickly to my text messages. Gus came home nice and exhausted and perfectly content. I would absolutely book with them again, and plan on doing so in the near future!
As always, we were very happy with the care Sophie received. Emily and Mike are our go to people for vacation stays. We couldn't be more pleased.
Emily and Mike were great! We got daily updates and they seemed to genuinely enjoy spending time with Diego. He even came back with a cool new toy! Thanks so much for taking great care of my guy!
Abby really enjoyed her stay with Emily! It was a perfect fit and felt right at home.
Once again, we were very pleased with Emily and Mike. Sophie spent the past week with them and I think Sophie now considers them to be her second family. She is as happy to see them as she is to see us when we return. We will use Emily whenever possible, both for short term and long term stays.
This was my first time using DogVacay and it was a great experience! Emily was so nice and it was so easy to arrange the drop off and pick up. Our dog Doza seemed to have a great time! We would definitley recommend Emily as a great dog sitter!!
Emily was so responsive and professional. This was our first DogVacay stay and she made us so comfortable! She sent us pictures throughout Lexie's stay and was so easy to work with. We will absolutely be leaving our sweet girl with Emily again!
Once again, we were very pleased with having Emily and Mike take care of Sophie while we were out of town. Sophie clearly loves spending time with them and we will not hesitate to use Emily and Mike again.
This review is long over due.. Just wanted to say that we absolutely loved Emily. She watched our two dogs and they seemed absolutely happy. She even went out of her way to buy them more food when they ran out (our fault!) and wouldn't even accept when we tried to compensate for it. We definitely will use her and recommend her and her boyfriend to anyone!
Emily was great! She had Chandler for six days and took excellent care of him. She administered his medication and sent us pictures everyday. We highly recommend her.
Fantastic experience!
We couldn't be more thrilled to have found Emily! Both her and Mike are so sweet, accommodating and VERY flexible with drop off and pick up times. It has been such a pleasure to work with her to arrange all of our reservation dates - she's very prompt to get back and did so well at putting my nervous mind at ease when leaving our pup for the first time. We've left our little guy, Fitz, with her a couple of times now and he always comes back happy and ready to rest:-) We would recommend them VERY highly and absolutely plan to use them again next time we need a sitter!
This was Deekon's second time staying with Emily and Mike and again he absolutely adored them. She sent me a picture every day (for 6 days!) and I could tell he was having a blast. I will absolutely go to Emily and Mike the next time I am out of town.
Emily was great! She was quick to respond to our request and flexible with pick up/drop off times. She took great care of our dog Chandler. We received pictures everyday and she was able to administer his medication. When we picked him up it was evident he had a good time. We would recommend Emily to anyone.
Emily was awesome. She was so welcoming and helpful with trying to arrange dropping off and picking up my dog. She sent pictures every day and Emma looked so happy. I could tell she really enjoyed having my dog for the weekend, and I will definitely have her watch Emma again the next time I am out of town. Overall, fantastic; I would highly recommend!!
Once again, we were very pleased to have Emily (and Mike) take care of our dog Sophie, this time for an extended stay of 11 days while we were in Australia. While Sophie was pleased to see us when we returned, she was obviously very happy at Emily's apartment, as shown in photos we received during our trip and by Sophie's ability to adjust quickly between the two environments. We will not hesitate to let Emily and Mike take care of Sophie again.
Emily and her boyfriend Mike were awesome with my 7 year old golden, Deekon. I could tell he absolutely adored them when I picked him up. She was quick to reply and very flexible with drop off and pickup times. She kept me updated with pictures throughout the weekend so I knew he was in good hands. I definitely plan on using them again!
Absolutely LOVE Emily and her boyfriend. They are the cutest couple and have the cutest apartment. They were extremely flexible with drop off and pick up. They even allowed me to extend my vacay no problem when I found out my flight had been changed to late at night. Unfortunately they ran out of food, but went out of their way to buy some more (and asked for the specific type we usually feed them) and didn't let me reimburse them when offered. Honestly they are such troopers for having BOTH of our dogs (teenage pups who are crazy). We would definitely recommend them AND use them again if they accept!
Our first experience with Emily and Mike was exceptional. Emily was quick to respond to our request, meet with us, and make flexible arrangements for drop off and pick up of our dog Sophie. Sophie was happy and relaxed when she returned home. We will definitely use Emily again.
