About Heather

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom to a 6yo boy. I'm looking to go back to nursing school as that is my passion. My husband and I have had animals our entire lives. We've taken care of family, friends, and friends of family/friends animals for the past 14years. All sizes from a chihuahua, to a boxer, to an American bulldog, to a Great Dane, ranging from puppy to senior, & even cats. We are a animal loving family with my son possibly being the biggest. He is always petting them, hugging them, and talking to them. We feed them twice a day and separate them while eating if necessary. We do not feed them from the table. They get dog ice cream mid day or frozen yogurt & unlimited water. Mine is an ice cube lover. We have plenty of tennis balls/toys in the back yard and we keep our yard maintained. There is a pool in the back but it's a small kiddie pool & it's not always set up but they are allowed in it when it's out. We have a magnetic mesh/screen door that gives them access to inside or outside as they please when the weather is not too hot or cold. We are always out back playing baseball, soccer, in the pool, slip n slide or throwing the ball with the dogs. My golden loves to run and wrestle but she's gentle. All the babies are worn out by bedtime. We have two carpeted spare rooms upstairs that we can set up beds for them but they will have the freedom to sleep where they please unless otherwise stated by the owners. We also have two rooms downstairs that are unfurnished. we let our son and nephews ride their scooter around Bc we do not let them ride on our sloped driveway. It helps when feeding them, Bc we can close the doors and it gives them more playing room inside. If we are pet sitting, we don't make any plans to leave the house for long so that they always have someone with them & to help them feel more comfortable in a different home. I try my best to text pictures every day so that you know your pet is having fun and in good hands. We are a very laid back family that loves to have fun and enjoy life with our minion. We treat our animals as our children & treat our guest animals the same as we would want the same treatment for ours. We've watched/had all kinds & will watch all kinds, Dogs, cats, caged, even fish :)

Very great with all animals. Very loving family that is super pet friendly. Their son Sonny loves dogs and loves to help with them as well! Would recommend Heather to watch my dog anytime!

Heather was a perfect match to care for our dog while we were away. Her warm personality made Betty feel at ease. Heather was very attentive to Betty's needs and when we picked her up we could tell that she had a good time. Heather has a large back yard, which our dog loved playing fetch with her and her family. When asked how our pup was doing, Heather was prompt to answer back and was willing to send pictures. We will definitely use her services again.

Love Heather!
Heather was AMAZING! We were so nervous to leave our newly rescued dog with anyone, but Heather put comfort in our hearts within 30 minutes of leaving him by sending us all these fun pictures & texting me updates WHENEVER I needed them. Her house is PERFECT for doggie vacays because she has a HUGE fenced in backyard that all dogs are free to roam/play/run in at ANY time of the day. They play fetch all together, run around all together, cuddle (when it's not bedtime) all together, what's not to love about this vacation for a dog! Another wonderful thing about Heather & her family is that they are almost always home, therefore your dogs will hardly ever be left alone! Oh yeah, -and she made homemade doggie treats for the gang... I was starting to think our dog might never want to come back home to us because Heather was that amazing caring for our pup! I would highly recommend her home to anyone, & I KNOW we will be using her services again if we go out of town!

She was amazing. She kept me updated on how Ellie was doing on a daily by sending pictures of all the dogs playing. We will definitely use her and her family again. Ellie was so sad to leave all her new friends.
Very easy last-minute scheduling. This is a great place for dogs who love to play with other dogs. Our dog had a vacation of his own while we were away! We got plenty of pictures and texts to reassure us that he was having a ball! Thank you!
I was very nervous about leaving Zoey as I had never boarded any of our dogs before. We could not have picked a better place. She sent us pictures and videos everyday of what Zoey was doing. Her son is a love and also played and interacted with all the dogs. She was loved, cared for and she had a blast. Have already recommended Heather to others.

The dogs had a great time! Hope to use again.
Heather and her family are amazing! My dog instantly felt right at home! The nice big backyard and 4-legged friends to hang out with made his stay a great one! He seemed to really enjoy his visit! Highly recommend Heather!
My puppy was very happy playing with new friends at Heather's house while we went on vacation. Heather took him on with 1day notice and he's not even house broken. She sent us daily updates and pictures. My dog probably would have rather stayed with Heather than come home with us! I can't recommend highly enough!!!

We debated on keeping our Bassett and Lab together, but we had a meet and greet with Heather and her husband. The dogs had a blast. She answers messages and communicates well. I'm sure the dogs had a blast. Thank you, Heather!
When we knocked on the door at our pre-arranged doggie vacay and nobody answered, we panicked with only a half hour before we had to be at a funeral. I quickly went back to the website to see if we had any options, and saw that Heather was nearby and she responded in 5 minutes. As advertised, she got right back to me and was ready to take our dog immediately. In the interim, the original host called and explained she was running late from church, so we stayed there and waited for her, and it all worked out. But Heather followed up, made sure we were taken care of, and even tried to figure out how to refund our second fee, which we could never do given how accommodating she was. When I head back to Yorktown again, we will be at Heather's place!!! Her quick response and caring attitude were so welcomed on a tough day.

My dogs loved Heather's!
She was very nice and was very quick to respond to messages and answered any questions I had. My dogs had the freedom to come in and out of her house and yard all day. Her yard is HUGE and has a tall privacy fence which was just what I was looking for! I know my dogs miss her home and thier new dog buddy. I will definitely be using her again!

Heather was great. My lab, Jackson, had a great time for the day with her retriever, Frankie.
Thank you for taking phenomenal care of Lulu. The phone calls and photos were a blessing. She was so calm and serene upon returning home. Lulu needed the interaction with other dogs. It was a wonderful experience. Looking forward to the next time. I would highly recommend your services.

Pepper had a great time and Heather made my experience worry free! Awesome experience and highly recommend Heather!
Heather was absolutely wonderful! My wife and I were visiting our daughter at CNU, and our hotel was not dog friendly. Heather was very kind and gracious to accommodate us on short notice. She was also kind enough to give our Winston a bath! She sent photos of Winston playing with her golden retriever in her back yard - they were having lots of fun. Then the next day, we were running late from a breakfast meeting that ran longer than expected, and Heather was very understanding and most gracious in driving our Winston to our hotel so we would not lose 40 minutes rounds trip and be late for our next appointment. All in all, Heather was an angel, and we are very thankful to her. Highest recommendations!

We had a wonderful first experience leaving our dog Bailey with Heather and her family. She met all of Baileys many needs. I know Bailey was so happy during her stay was through all the picture we received and how Bailey acted when we picked her up. We will continue to use Heather when we go out of town.

Heather was a fantastic host! She sent lots of pictures and kept me updated with what my pup was doing during the stay. Easy to communicate with and would highly recommend! Until next time!
Wow!

This was the first time I used this service and I loved it. I dropped our Zoë off for a daycare service while we were at a wedding. When we came back to pick her up, we found a very happy dog that got to run and play all afternoon with Heather's Dog. Zoë slept the whole way home!

Thanks Heather for taking such good care of Zoë!
