About Allison

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I believe a tired dog is a good dog. I make sure dogs in my care get lots of walks and playtime. Doggie play dates with other clients are scheduled if possible. Your dog becomes part of my family for the length of their stay. Often dogs leave here and crash for several days from the activity here.

A few things...please read.
-I do not take dogs who mark, period. If you are wondering if this is your dog....then it probably is.
-If you have an electric fence, you must notify your petsitter. Dogs who are used to being able to go out the front door without a leash on will think they can do that anywhere!
- I am a yoga teacher and teach classes in my home. Therefore if you think people coming in and out of the home will be an issue for your pet (i.e. incessant barking, fearful of strangers, social anxiety) please choose another pet sitter for your needs.
- Lastly if your pet is used to constantly being with you (if you work from home or you are retired) - your pet MAY need a home that can offer that to him/her. I spend quality time with them, but not quantity. I am home teaching yoga, taking my daughter back and forth places, and walking dogs. I am in and out all day as a dog walker, yoga teacher, fitness enthusiast, mom, wife, and home owner. This can be unsettling for some dogs whose owners are home all the time.

Allison is such a great host. We were always against boarding our dog at a kennel and then we found Allison through DogVacay! Our dog Roxy has "vacationed" with her and her family twice while we were away and we never had to worry about how she was doing. We received photos during the weeks that we were away that looked like Roxy was having way more fun than she has at home! We will definitely continue to have Roxy stay with Allison when we go away. Thank you Allison!

Although my dogs didn't end up staying with Allison, due to personal reasons, I found her to be extremely friendly, helpful and professional in all aspects of the reservation process.
Allison was GREAT!!!! Watched Tasha on a moments notice. Tasha had a great time was soo tired when when she come home...
Allison watched our dog, Marshall, for us while we were away getting married. Allison was such a great sitter for Marshall, and even stopped by our venue with Marshall so we could have a few photos with him!

Allison is great and very responsive! Would gladly have her watch Marshall any time we are in the area and need a dog sitter.

Allison is the Best. She took great care of our dog while we were away. Kept us updated with pictures. My pup was very happy there with her family and resident dog.
This was our first time leaving our 1.5 year old doberman Izzy for an extended stay so we were very apprehensive and nervous.

Allison did an amazing job with our dog! She provided daily updated via pics and video. Izzy was playing with other dogs, taking runs on the beach, lounging around on couches and beds. It was clear from the pics that Izzy was in a very relaxed state and having a blast.

I highly recommend anyone to use Allison for dog sitting. We had gone away for a day or two in the past and used purr and pooch in Tinton falls. Based on our experience I would choose Allison to watch our dog moving forward.

Very glad we found her for future trips. If your considering a dog sitter make sure to use Allison if your in the Middletown area!

Allison was wonderful! She is clearly a dog lover and welcomed our golden retriever into her home! Sh has a great set up for the dogs and she was very conscientious making sure to set up our dogs visit for success.
Allison stayed in touch while we were away with updates and eased any anxieties we had about leaving our dog in another persons home. She was a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her.

Allison was great with our "Casey-girl"!! From the moment we met Allison, we could tell she was a 'dog-person', which made us feel at ease leaving our girl with someone we had barely known before. When we dropped her off, we realized we had forgotten her collar. No problem! Allison had one that fit Casey just fine! We were sent intermittent text messages and photos showing how well she was being cared for and it looked like she was fitting right in!
We will DEFINITELY use Allison in the future and recommend her to anyone looking for a dog-sitter!!

Absolutely amazing. She's wonderful, I'd never leave him anywhere else.
A huge thank you to Dog Vacay and host Allison S. When a previous host cancelled 3 days before my vacation, Travis contacted several hosts and Allison responded right away. My pup and I had a meet & greet the same day and met Allison, her family and her sweet dog Palmer. Allison cared for my pup in a warm and safe environment, just like home! She sent photos too which was great. My pup also got a nice opportunity to socialize with other doggie visitors. Thank you Allison for being so accommodating and taking such good care of Sammie. I went from a stressful last minute situation to peace of mind. This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and Allison, and I would recommend both as a great alternative to kennel boarding.
Thanks again, Elaine & Sammie

Leaving my pup is heart wrenching for me - we moved to a new state where we know no one. Through dogvacay I found Alison and her family and met for a meet & greet - after only a few minutes in Alison's backyard and meeting her dog Palmer and seeing the joy dJango had running around - I felt comfortable and relieved that I found a 2nd home for dJango where he is safe and happy while I travel for work.

Alison is the Best - she keeps you up to date with photos and is flexible in her drop-off/pick-up times and a very positive caretaker for your pup.

Oreo had a pawsome vacay with Allison and her family! If she could speak, I am sure she would rate her experience 5 bones! Allison was a pleasure to deal with and we appreciate how Oreo was treated like a member of the family. The pictures Allison sent brought smiles to our faces and peace of mind knowing that Oreo felt comfortable and was clearly enjoying herself with her new friends. I would not hesitate to recommend Allison to other pet parents.

Allison and her family were conscientious and welcoming to my miniature poodle. They kept us informed throughout her stay. Also, sent pictures. Bella came home a very happy dog. I would highly recommend Allison and will definitely be using her services again in the future.

Sasha is already asking when is her next vacation. She loves staying with Allison and her family. She seems to miss all her "friends" when she returns to our quiet house.
The photos Allison sends while we are away are greatly appreciated. Seeing Sasha happy lets us know that sending her to Allison's was a good choice for us.

Sasha had a good time at Allison's house. Allison kept Sasha on her medications which was important to me. We enjoyed seeing the photos each day that Allison sent of Sasha playing with her dog Palmer. It is a plus that the dogs get along so well, I think Sasha misses her new friends now that she's back at home.
We definitely will be booking with Allison in the future.

Allison was very professional and responsive from scheduling our first meet and greet right up to pick up time. I was nervous about leaving one of our two dogs for the first time, but after our meet and greet I knew Sadie and Garfunkel (two 1-yr-old lab mixes) would be safe with her and her family. Even though they can be a bit of a handful, Allison handled everything wonderfully and sent me regular updates so I didn't have to worry. They had such a fun time playing in the backyard all weekend that they have been sound asleep since coming home! I would recommend Allison to any family looking to leave their fur-children with the peace of mind knowing that they will be loved and well-cared for.

Everything went great. I'm so happy we found Allison. This was Sasha's first time away from family and she seemed to feel at home. Allison took her for a long walk and she loves walks.
Over his three week stay, the photos showed that Bogart integrated well with Allison's family and seemed quite at home. When we passed Allison's home a few days after his stay, Bogart stretched his leash to the full extent and tried to drag me to her front door. Bogart rates Allison and her family a ten!

Bogart was eager to go back into Allison's house (we had a quick get acquainted visit with Allison, her dog, and guests a few days earlier). It was obvious that he liked being with Allison and although Bogart is usually shy at first with new dogs, he quickly greeted the others and joined their play. Photographs sent the first day made clear that Bogart felt right at home with Allison and her family. While Bogart was excited when he greeted us, he was in no hurry to leave while Allison discussed with us his exercise and food for the day. We think that Allison is a perfect match for Bogart and that he will be well cared for each vacation.

I'm so happy to have found Allison! She is so great with our dog! Took him to the beach and he's passed out now. Our dog is difficult to get tired out. I look forward to using her in the future.
Allison is a great host. She was very flexible, with the needs of the dog foremost in her mind. We'll definitely use her again.
Allison S was wonderful with our dog. After the first meet and greet we were put at ease that our dog will have a good time in her home. Allison was very easy to communicate with and she send us updates on Aza(our dog) frequently. When we went to pick our dog up she was happy and well taken care off. Our dog has allergies and she tends to lick her paw raw, but Allison was taking care of that too by wrapping her paw and putting medication on it, I would recommend Allison to anybody to take care of their animals. We are grateful to have found her on DogVacay.

She' just wonderful....I wouldn't leave Barney anywhere else now.
I really thought Barney would miss me, but he didn't at all! Allison kept him busy the whole time he was there. She & her family were great to Barney.

When I brought him home, I think he was homesick...to go back to Allison's house..!

She is wonderful with dogs....I would not hesitate to leave Barney there again. She is also flexible with drop/pick ups. Thanks Allison!

We had a great experience with Allison!
Allison is fantastic, from the first moment I met her, I knew my dog would be in great hands. Allison treated my dog as if she were her own and texted me doggie updates while we were away!! Overall, it was a great experience, my pups came home exhausted from a fun filled weekend!!
