About Wanda

34 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a warm and very comfy home with a large 6 foot fenced yard, and medium sized dog door. The doggies really love my big back yard! There is lots of room to run, play in the grass and even dirt to dig in. Whether they are here for the day, the night, or longer, your precious ones will be loved and cared for like one of my family. I don't use kennels or crates, unless you bring your own. The doggies sleep in my room or the extra bedroom.

I love my RETURNING GUEST dogs, and they get SPECIAL RATES at Grammy's House! Please contact me before you make a reservation. I will send you a custom quote for this special rate. I offer discounts for extended stays, (5 days or more) and multiple dogs.

I am working from home and I will be here 24/7 to make sure your pup is safe and loved until your return. They will receive lots of love and individual attention, with free run of the house and yard.

We always prefer to meet and greet. The doggies love to come over, check out the yard, meet Angel, Dobby, Willie, and new dog friends! You get to see where they will stay, and they feel more at home when they come back to visit.

They will go on our walks and have a big yard to play in with a limited number of other well behaved dogs. I want you to know that feeling of leaving them safe at Grandma's house, knowing they will be loved and spoiled with affection.

I send photos and\or email updates of their activities, so you will be able to enjoy your time away without worry. You will see them smiling and having fun!

I love all of my doggies, and they know it! I would probably have 5 dogs of my own if I could, but I can't, so having many many granddogs is the next best thing!

DAYCARE is available on a limited basis. I offer flexible start times, full day or half day.

I can no longer accept any dog that is not altered. Please spay or neuter your pet, they are so much happier, and less stressed about life! My dogs are all rescues, and I sometimes foster for the Nevada Humane Society.

PLEASE ADOPT, DON'T SHOP!

If I am booked up, please check out one of my fellow hosts at DogVacay.com. They are true dog lovers like myself who will love to have your pup come for a visit!

~~A note from Grammy Wanda~~

Thank you to all who have taken the time to write such amazing and wonderful reviews for me, it is really fun to go back and read through them all. It means so much. I smile and laugh, and they touch my heart!

I love hearing how happy your pups are to be here, I am so happy to have them in my life and be their "Grammy".

Thank you all so very much for your trust, your many referrals, and for sharing your lovey loves with me!

Wanda is an excellent sitter. She is who I will use for any future pet sitting needs.

*In the past* (i.e. NOT Wanda), I've boarded my dogs at a kennel. Every time I picked them up, they were wrecks for at least a week after. Anxious, not eating right, diarrhea, signs of separation anxiety. This has in turn made me anxious whenever attempting to go on vacation.

With Wanda, the dogs were very excited to be there and meet her. The environment is great, very dog friendly. When picking them up, they were happy. After getting home we were back on our normal routine with none of the 'side effects' I've experienced at kennels.

Thanks so much Wanda!

We had tried other doggy day cares before that weren't a good fit. Wanda was wonderful with Bella and sent us pictures throughout the day. I would recommend Wanda to anyone that is weary of leaving their fur babies at doggy day care.
My dogs had fun with Wanda!
Bodie is very comfortable and happy when staying overnight at Grammy Wanda's house! Great home away from home for my fur baby!!
This was our first Dog Vacay experience and Wanda made it so easy. She was friendly and very accommodating, especially since we made the request so last minute. Piper was a happy dog so we will definitely use this service again!
Wanda took great care of my chihuahua Penny for a week. I could tell from the pictures Wanda sent that Penny had a blast playing with the other dogs. I will definitely send Penny back to stay with Wanda next time I go out of town!
Wanda is terrific! Rosie had suck a grand time playing with the others. We shared all the pictures Wands sent us of during Rosie's visit and everyone just laughed and smiled. Rosie is looking forward to our next visit to the area and staying with Grammy Wanda

Wanda was great with our pup! Got lots of pictures and updates of our pup's vacation during ours. Really felt comfortable leaving her with Wanda and will do so again.
Wanda takes such good care of my Coco. I love the pictures I get emailed/texted while I am away - Coco is always smiling and muddy :)
Wanda is very conscientious and I know my dog is protected and well taken care of at her house. I highly recommend her :)

My two dogs have stayed with Wanda for the day several times and they like being there. They head right for her backyard to explore and sniff around. Wanda sends me photos during the day which I'm very grateful for. I feel very confident that my "babies" are well taken care of with Wanda.

My dog, Gypsy, had a great time. She played until she was exhausted and loved every minute of it. She is an only dog in my household and loves other dogs. Wanda's yard is totally safe for my small dog and when I went to pick her up, she was so excited to see me but was torn between coming home and wanting to stay and play. I highly recommend Wanda if you're looking for someone who loves what they do and will consider your pet one of hers and love them.

Our first time using dogvacay was a great experience thanks to Wanda!

Wanda was in contact with us through the entire time leading up to and during our booking. Our shipoo got comfortable at her place quickly and was cared for like we asked.

Wanda is a good pet host and is very reasonable.

Wanda is warm and kind to the dogs that stay with her. We left Bubba for a week -- the longest we have left him with someone else. She sent pictures and messages that eased my mind. We will call Wanda again with confidence!
Wanda was great. She sent us pictures of the pups everyday, with a little note. The dogs looked happy and relaxed. They seemed to be having a wonderful time. Her two dogs were friendly and playful. Her manner put us at ease, we felt confident leaving them with her, and should we need a place for them in the future we will definitely give Wanda another call.

Wanda is awesome PAWsome! It's very obvious that she loves dogs like family. My dog Baxter came back happy and tired. If dogs could talk he would tell me that he would go back for a vacay at Wanda's house anytime. Thank you Wanda for taking such good care of my hound.

We left out Cocker Spaniel with Wanda for 4 nights and 3 days. He was so happy there that he hesitated to leave! She not only took him walking, with three others, but she put pictures on the internet for us to have. Thank you, thank you, Wanda. You deserve all 5 stars!! Marilyn

As usual, my dog Coco (nut) had a blast at Wanda's house during the last visit. Wanda works really hard to take care of our pets and makes it look easy and fun. In fact, I just dropped her off again for the weekend :)
Sadie stayed at Wanda's for the last visit 5 days and the one before was for 13 days. We are so happy with the care she gets at Wanda's. We see pictures almost daily on what she is up too. It helps not to miss her so much. She loves roaming the backyard and the walks. I would recommend Wanda to anyone I know and will continue to use her when we travel. Sadie comes home a good tired but she slips back into our routine very quickly.

Our Cocker Spaniel has never been away from home for a night except in a kennel. He spent 24 hrs. with Wanda and didn't want to come home! She is so kind and such a happy person. We are so glad that we found her through dogvacay!! We are going to book Freckles again for a 4 day stay while we go to Oregon.

We were so impressed on how well Wanda took care of our "furry baby" Rigby, our Yorkie. Not only did she have a million dog toys and beds all over her house and backyard, but you can tell she really has a love for dogs. She has two very friendly dogs that played well with mine. She kept us updated very well through Rigbys stay. She sent tons of pictures which was so nice and updated us on how he was doing. When we checked in with Wanda periodically to see how he was doing she responded immediately. When we picked him up he was all fluffy and clean as she gave him a bath!! We will for SURE be using her again on our next trip to Reno!! Thanks Wanda for your great care!

Wanda was so wonderful with our pups!!! She sent pictures and updates everyday.! So glad to have our fur babies with someone who takes good care of them.
Wanda is amazing!! My Gypsy loves her and all the doggies she gets to play with. I have used her many times and I know Gypsy is getting loved and cuddled just like she does at home!!
I have only used Wanda once for daycare service. I did do a "meet and greet" before that. It went very well. She has a great way with the dogs. I like her house and yard and I really liked that she sent photos during the day of the playing and going for a walk, etc. Will use her again!

Star had another fun filled day with her Grammy Wanda, Dobby and Angel. As soon as we pull up at the house Star is excited to get inside to play with her friends and greet Wanda. We know that shows how much she loves her visits. Would recommend Wanda to anyone that is looking for pet care.

We use Wanda's Daycare all the time for our dog Star. She loves her time there. She receives the best care from Wanda. Lots of cuddles and love. We receive great pictures of Star showing us how her day is going. Added bonus for us.
If you want the Best Pet Daycare available then Wanda is excellent. Our dog Star loves her visits. She is so tired from playing all day with Wanda's two dogs Dobby and Angel that she sleeps the whole way home. So happy we found her.
Star had another great day at Daycare with her Grammy Wanda, Dobby and Angel.
Star had a Great Vacation with Grammy Wanda. We use Wanda all the time for Daycare visits and Vacations. We know we can go away and Star is getting excellent care and lots of love and we never have to worry.
Our first stay with Grammy Wanda was fantastic. 1 week while we took our kids on vacation.

We have a 4 month old Rottie pub who just loved playing with all the other dogs.

We were nervous about leaving our pup (with anyone!) and Wanda sent us lots of great photos and communicated with us to reassure everything was going great. The phone APP worked brilliantly for communication on-the-go.

We will be back!

Another wonderful stay with Grammy Wanda via DogVacay. I love the way that we can communicate through the app messaging and receiving several photos of Dozer each day. Dozer is always exhausted and happy when we pick him up. I know he is very well taken care of! Thank you.

Once again Wanda did a stellar job at watching my little Oliver!!! He loves spending time there with her pups and the other doggies she's watching too! Her updates and pictures of Oliver come consistently and she puts me at ease knowing Oliver is right at home without any sort of anxieties or issues. She's amazing and knows what she's doing!!! Highly recommended!

After having spent one daycare day playing with Wanda, we left our pup Milhouse with her for a 4-day weekend. He got excited as soon as he knew we were on her street, so I was happy he remembered his previous experience positively. Wanda provided a few pictures each day we were away, with a short note of how he was doing. Her comments were specific enough that I knew she was really paying attention to him, and I could see from the pictures that he was comfortable there. After we picked him up, he slept for almost 24 hours straight, so I knew he played and played and played! Wanda's home is definitely comfortable for multiple dogs, her fenced yard has room for them to run and play, and they have access to the yard on their own. She even bathed our pup the day of pickup. Grammy Wanda treats her guests like they are her own.

We loved Wanda's care for our little dog so much the first time, that we booked a second stay. It, too, was a huge success. Beatrix had a great time and was very happy. Wanda updated us with photos and kept us informed at all times.

If you live in Reno or are visiting there, THIS is the place to leave your beloved dog(s) if you want 100% excellent care. Wanda is the BEST!

My little dog Loki is a rescue and is very timid in new situations and with strangers. Although he did not completely warm up to her, it gave me peace of mind knowing he was cared for and safe and sound in a home environment rather than having to board him in a kennel facility. Wanda sent me daily pictures and updated me on how he was doing. I will utilize Wanda's services again if need be.

Wanda was an absolutely outstanding host for our little Beatrix! She communicated with us regularly and sent lots of photos, which really put our minds at ease. I cannot recommend Wanda highly enough. Her environment is neat and clean and very safe for pets. The other pets that were there seemed so happy, and we know that our Beatrix loved her stay there.

You can stop looking after this. Wanda is the BEST!

Wanda spoiled our dog BJ. She took him for walks with the other dogs and sent us pictures everyday of his adventures! He even got a present from Santa at her house which he plays wiith at home. He seemed happy at her house and made friends with the other dogs. He is very shy so that was an accomplishment ! We will definitely have her "dogsit" for us again!

Wanda is awesome! My dog Sherlock is usually shy and she was able not only to quickly bond with him, but also to provide a very comfortable environment so that he also bonded with her 3 own dogs and the 2 other dogs that were staying there.

She was super flexible too in terms of providing him a separated room in case he didn't feel comfortable around the other dogs but that was not necessary since he was able to stay with the pack the whole time.

I definitely recommend her and we will be staying with her again on our next trips to Reno!

Wanda was amazing! My little pup had such a great time! Wanda went above and beyond when it came to taking care of my puppy! Highly recommended!
Indi and Ruby J were none the worse for wear after 8 days playing with their friends at Grammy Wanda's. The two resident dogs, Angel and Dobbie, were sad to see them go. This was their 4th or 5th stay and we are now leave and enjoy our vacation time with no worries. Thanks, Wanda, for doing such a great job, you are a dog whisperer extraordinaire!

We have no regrets leaving Carson with Wanda over the weekend while we traveled. We know he had a great time (thanks to the pictures), he was given a bath!, and Wanda was very accommodating to allow us to pick Carson up even though we landed late at night. He is exhausted from playing all weekend, and we are so happy to have found someone to leave Carson with where we don't feel guilty because we know he's having so much fun!

Wanda is the Greatest! Star was so happy to see her Grammy Wanda and have her play date with Dobby and Angel for the day.
Wanda, kept Sadie for us this past week again. We loved the pictures she sent of Sadie walking, playing and sleeping. We will continue to use Wanda in the future. My husband and I know that she is getting good care and getting to stay in a home environment.

We are so happy we found Wanda. When Molly figures out we are on her street, she starts whining and then runs to her front door. That says it all.
Our two Goldens spent their first daycare day in Reno at Wanda's. They were a little nervous at first but seemed to warm up quickly. I appreciated the pictures Wanda sent to assure us they were doing fine. It was an active day for them and they're fast asleep now. Thank you Wanda!

Wanda is understanding of our cautious bossy Border Collie as well as our happy boisterous love-in-your-face Boston Terrier Pug cross. It was a great day of fun for us knowing that our "kids" (no grandkids yet:) were having a blast and pooping on someone else's lawn for a change. Thanks Wanda!
Read More...
As expected Wanda was fantastic with Miles and Maggie! She sent frequent updates which helped me feel better about leaving them for such a long period of time. The M&M's came home happy and healthy. Thank you Wanda!!
One of the hard parts of traveling is worrying that your pups are going to be okay, that they are also having a good time. We don't worry anymore, we take them to Wanda. Our pups run up the walk, so excited to visit Grammy! They have wonderful adventures (we get pictures that reassure us of how much fun they are having). When we get back our guys are happy and tired, just like us.
Thank you, Wanda, we enjoy our vacations so much more, knowing our furry family members are enjoying their vacations too!

Wanda does a wonderful job. She cares about our dog and we will ask her to take care of him in the future. Frank Woolsey
I just picked up Buster after his stay with Grammy Wanda and must say that she always does a wonderful job. I never worry when Buster is with her and can tell by the pictures she sends that he is happy and getting the best of care. Thanks Wanda!
Star loved her 11 day vacation with her Grammy Wanda!! We received great pictures everyday from Wanda showing us Star at play and on her walks plus much more. Loved the updates and it made it easy for us to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing Star was being so well cared for and loved. Highly recommend Wanda for anyone that is looking for a very Loving and Caring Dog Sitter. Star will be vacationing again with her Grammy Wanda in the future.

Picked up Midge yesterday after a 9 day stay and she was freshly shampooed and brushed! Wanda seemed very sensitive to her needs, shy and laid back, she was given a quite spot for the times she chose to chill. Play area and house very dog friendly. I would recommend Wanda to my friends!

Wanda is always very nice and loving to the dogs in her care. Star will be spending 11 days with her starting on Saturday. We will miss Star but are comfortable that Wanda will keep her happy !
We will be going on vacation and decided to try our rescue pooch Star with some short daycare stays before leaving her for an extended stay. Star has loved her time with Grammy Wanda. We are very happy to know we will be able to leave for vacation and Star will be well cared for and loved. Wanda has made the experience perfect for us and put our minds at ease.

If you are looking for a wonderful place for your dog to vacation - while you vacation - you've found it.

Wanda is such a Godsend to our family. She takes wonderful care of the pups, they get lots of attention and exercise and you get lots of pictures and piece of mind. When you come pick them up - they will be happy, unstressed and will take long naps!

Thank you once again, Wanda - my pups love you and we do too!

Wanda is amazing!! Mr. loves going to Wanda's house for sleepovers. She treats him like a king, he never wants to come home. She has such a wonderful way with pets.
I left my two dogs with Wanda two weekends so far and I have absolutely no complaints. She was very accommodating with my schedule and she seems good to my dogs. My dogs didn't mind going back the second time- they ran to the front door and were excited to get inside! She has a good size backyard and keeps her house open to the backyard so the dogs can go in and out anytime. Lots of toys and a good number of friends to play with. I plan on going back to Wanda for my dogs' next vacation :)

Thanks Wanda. Sweet Pea had a great stay!
We are so happy to have found Wanda. Molly jumps out of the car and runs to the front door when we drop her off. That's all that we need to know.
Zeus had a wonderful time with Grammy Wanda! The atmosphere was comfortable and homey. And Zeus got in lots of play time and really enjoyed himself. Wanda sent photos, which was a huge comfort as we are not used to leaving him very often. When we picked him up, he didn't cry like he has when we have boarded him at some other places. He was happy to see us, and then he took a big, long nap after all of the excitement of being with his new buddies.

Daily texts with pics! Showed love, knowledge and patience with our two "kids"! We were thankful to have her available. And will definitely ask her to watch them again!
My Gypsy was loved and taken care of! She had a blast playing with all the other dogs...we will be going back very soon!
Wanda is incredibly kind and caring. She was so wonderful with our dog. He had the time of his life at her house. I would highly recommend her and definitely use her again.
Grammy Wanda is a great place to leave your dog especially if he is a little dog. She has 2 of her own and always has 1 or more guests so that Willie has a great time playing with all the little doggies. He gets along with the bigger dogs too so this is a terrific spot for him to learn proper canine social behavior without having to go to a trainer.

well, Wanda was fantastic! she managed our 4 quirky little rescues so well and they were so well treated that there's not enough space to relate the wonderful feelings we had while she cared for pups that are so much part of our family well we traveled for a family get together that could not include them! she treated them was so much care and understood them so quickly that it was so comforting for us. having rescues is a challenge in and of itself, taking care of four that have these personalities challenge by early miss use it takes the true caregiver to manage all at once. we are so grateful for her daily communications and pictures confirming our trust in her and her understanding of our four legged family members.we highly recommend Wanda to care for your family while away! thanks to dog vacay for their introduction

Wanda sent photos by text and message almost every day ! We will choose her next time for our Rocky Frank and Leslie
We loved getting the photos of Molly while we were gone.
This was the longest time we had ever been away from our dogs, a pug X and a border collie. Wanda suggested a shorter stay prior to this one and it was a great idea. The pictures and daily updates were reassuring. They had playmates and went for walk in a pack, experiences they wouldn't have had at home. It took a good night's sleep and a late wakeup and they were refreshed, back to normal, and causing trouble as usual. Your dogs shouldn't tie you down. Take them to Wanda's and leave with your mind at ease knowing that she will care for them as you do. I didn't know Wanda prior to our pups 2 visits so this review is totally unbiased except the bias that comes from a good experience for all two and four legged parties.

OUR DOG SOFIE IS YOUNG AND ENERGETIC AND TOUGH FOR US TO HANDLE MUCH LESS SOMEONE WHO DOES'NT KNOW HER. WANDA HANDLED HER VERY WELL WITH KINDNESS AND PATIENCE. WE ALSO CALLED WANDA AT ODD HOURS TO GET OUR DOG TO TAKE HER OUT AND WANDA ALWAYS WORKED WITH US. SOFFIE WAS BETTER FOR SPENDING TIME WITH WANDA.ALSO DOG VACAY WAS EXCELLENT. WE WILL USE THEM AND WANDA AGAIN. THANKS

This, was Sadie"s first time at Wanda's based on a co-worker recommendation. Sadie, had a great time, played, went for walks and played in a backyard. We got pictures daily and it was fun to get our Sadie fix on our trip. We miss her when we travel. We will being using Wanda again when we travel where Sadie can't go.

Wanda is the absolute best! She will always take Willie even last minute and her rates are more than reasonable. I am really happy that we found her which never would have happened if there was no DogVacay.com
We are a retired couple who are extremely attached and careful with our two dogs, a pug cross and a border collie. We both volunteer with herding dog rescue and foster dogs ourselves, so we are aware of hard it can be for a dog to be in an unfamiliar environment and how difficult it can be to help a stressed dog find a calm state of mind.
Wanda was superb at reading our dogs and providing for their individual needs. She is good natured, kind, and extremely loving with her charges. She helped our border collie gain confidence in the stay. Both dogs slept on the way home and have returned to their normal routine as if they had never been gone.
We have already made a reservation for a future weeklong stay while we attend a wedding.
The texted pictures and updates were particularly reassuring and enjoyable.

Wanda is a very caring and concerned caretaker. I have boarded my dog twice at her place. Both times he seems to have enjoyed himself. Boomer got injured on the property. The guess was a dog fight but Wanda wasn't so sure as she did not witness when the puncture hole above the eye took place. I appreciate Wanda having gone through great effort to reach me, take him to the vet and provide medical treatment and comfort. Wanda also checked up on Boomer after he was back at my home. I thought that was very caring. I don't think one can expect more of a doughtier. Thank you Wanda.

Wanda is very flexible and caring. Our 12 year old Maltepoo was in very good hands with her. She specifically noticed that he needed some quiet time and gave him a quiet corner in the house. I would fully recommend her.
Wanda is a fabulous dogsitter. My dog is missing her and the other pets. I enjoyed receiving her many text messages with photos and comments. I felt comfortable leaving Boomer with her. Thank you Wanda.
Wanda is great. Very flexible for our meet and greet and my furbabies really seemed to enjoy being there.
Wanda is really laid back and didn't stress out that my puppy wasn't house broken
Thank you, Wanda, for a great first experience with leaving my girls behind.

Awesome host! My dogs met plenty of new friends and I was always updated with pictures via text. I highly recommend Wanda if you need to leave your dogs with someone on your travels.
Wanda is great! She cares about the dogs. Keep sending us pictures update which is very helpful for us since this is the first time boarding our dog. She even offered to take a bath for her.

It's a relief to know that our dog stays with a professional dog lover who cares.

Grammy Wanda is the best doggie host we could ever expect to have. She takes marvelous care of all her boarders and has a huge fenced in back yard for them to frolic in and do their "business"-LOL Her rates are more than reasonable and I never hesitate to leave Wilson in her charge.

This was Miles and Maggie's 4th trip to Grammy Wanda's. They came home exhausted and happy just as they have in previous visits. Grammy Wanda has been a godsend for our family!! We have been able to do so much this summer because we knew we could trust Wanda with our fur babies

Wanda is awesome. It's nice to know how much the dogs love to visit her. When they see her house, they start talking to me and want out of the car as soon as possible. They both run as fast as they can to Wanda's front door. I really appreciate and love the pictures of the dogs Wanda sends to us while we are away. She really does care for the dogs like they were her own.

Wanda was great! She sent plenty of pictures of our two dogs with cute messages about what was going on. She took our dogs to the dog park and for walks. Will definitely use her again!!!
The best experience EVER!
Moo! Is my child and has never done well with anyone but her grandparents or myself. I was very uncomfortable with leaving her ANYWHERE but especially because I had not seen the house or met Wanda per normal meet and greet protocol. Wanda was gracious enough to take my Moo! on such short notice without prior introductions because she has dogsense, she can just feel a match! We showed up and instantly my dog was happy and playing like she was at home. I was sent regular pictures of Moo! throughout their daily events that included multiple walks, ball playing, movies, and cuddling. I give my highest recommendation to Grammy Wanda. If I still lived in the area I would use her as much as I could.

As usual Chewy loved his stay with Wanda. Perfect for your dog sitter needs.
As always terrific!!!
Miles and Maggie LOVE going to Grammy Wanda's!! This wast their third trip and they were very excited to see her and Angel. Wanda has been a god send for my family as we were unable to leave our kids in at traditional boarding facility. Grammy Wanda's house is the absolute best!!!

Always a great time with Wanda, Angel and friends!!
Again Wanda came through for us, she is great!!
Wanda is so very acommadating,we really appreciate her care for our dog.
Great to have someone as special as Wanda to take our doggie, sometimes at the last minute.
Wanda's awesome and she kept us up to speed with multiple photos and text messages each day. She makes the dogs feel comfortable and they were comfortable with the setting. We highly recommend her to any interested dog owner.
Wanda is always a pleasure! She is very flexible with her time and always open to help out! I know that when I leave my Adelaide with her she will be attended to and loved at all times just like at home. And I know my pup will have so much fun with Wanda's other dogs as there are always other pups around to run around with. Wanda is the BEST!

This was our second trip to Grammy Wanda's and this trip was just as positive as the first! Wanda is a true dog lover and sent me multiple texts and pictures while we were away! I love being able to go on a vacation and know that my fur kids are on a vacation of their own:)

Short notice was ment a great deal to us, as we didn't want to leave pour dog in his cage for as long as we we're going to be gone. Wanda is GREAT!!!
Mr. Busy is moving in with Wanda his new favorite "person". I can alway count on Wanda to spoil him rotten. I don't get that grin that he gives her in all the wonderful picture she sends me. Wanda and DogVacy is the best idea ever. I know that when i drop Mr. off he has friends to play with. Angel, Wanda's dog is just as excited when Mr. shows up. He always sleeps for a couple of days after visiting her. We love Wanda and Angel!!

We found Wanda to be very protective of our dog. She sent us texts everyday with pics. We felt very comfotable for the safty and well being of our dog. We will definatley use Wanda again.
My dog Howley had a good time and came home happy and tired
I've never left my doggies with anyone but family or close friends before so I was a bit nervous at the thought of leaving my three pups with a stranger. The meet and greet really did help my dogs get acquainted with Wanda and her home as well as help put my fiancé and my own worries at ease. She read my profile and already knew my pups, listened to any additional information we had, and answered all of our questions.
One of the best things about leaving our pups with her is that they had plenty of activity to get them all tuckered out. They had walks and a ton of room to play and make friends. Wanda was great about sending pictures and updates throughout the day each day that our puppies stayed with her so we knew what they were up to and could see how much fun they were having!
We would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a reliable, safe, and loving person to watch their pets and we will definitely ask her to watch our pups again in the future! Thanks Wanda!!!

This was Busters second vacation with Wanda and it went as well as his first visit. He was happy to see her when we arrived and immediately went into play mode. He came home so tired that he slept most of the day. From the pictures she sent me, I could tell he was having great fun.

I could not have been more pleased with Wanda. My dog, Coco actually stayed with Wanda for 11 days while I was in Hawaii on vacation. WhiIe on vacation, I received daily texts and pics of Coco while she was with Wanda. Coco took lots of walks, met new friends and had the freedom to walk around her house and play in Wanda's big, pet friendly back yard. Wanda is clearly an animal lover and Coco was so well taken care of :)
I like to take Coco with me when I travel but when I can't take her, I will definitely take Coco to Wanda's house. I highly recommend Wanda :)

As always, my experience with Wanda has been great, my Ringo loves staying with her, first thing he does is to make himself at home but grabbing one of the toys and running to the backyard, I just left him for 16 days, and I miss him terribly but Wanda sends pictures and narratives of what he is doing so i keep up with what he is doing.

Wanda hosted my Vizsla during an overnight trip to Reno and it couldn't have worked out more perfect. Wanda loves dogs and is very good with them. She has a nice, big backyard for the beasts to play in and runaround. She also takes them on daily walks. Her home is warm and cozy. I would definitely recommend Wanda as a dog sitter if you are needed one in the Reno area. Thanks Wanda!

My dog (Buster) is two and a half years old and this is the first time we've left him in someone elses care. We were nervous but Wanda put me at ease by inviting Buster and I to her house a couple of weeks prior to his stay in order to acquaint both of us with her and the surroundings. Buster's eventual stay with Wanda was great. He came home exhausted which told me that Wanda keep him very busy. Wanda send us photo updates every night so I could see Buster's day. Buster was happy to see me but sad to leave Wanda.

My kids loved going to Grammy Wanda's house! I am extremely selective on where I will leave my fur babies. She took excellent care of them and sent me frequent pictures throughout the weekend. I cannot recall a time when I have been able to leave the kids without worry. Thank you Wanda!

Grammy Wanda's was fantastic as always. Kye had a blast and is worn out as usual.
Wanda was wonderful! We were a little nervous, as our dogs had never been boarded, but they were so happy and content there. We got pictures of them playing everyday. It was like leaving them at Grandma's house. Wanda also took care of medication for my puppy, and the vet said that she had been very well taken care of when he saw her today for her surgery.

Wanda is a wonderful person and will welcome your dog into her home as part of her family. Our Yorkie, Cooper, has stayed with Wanda three times now. We love the photos she sends of all the fun Cooper has while out on walks, playing in the yard with the other dogs, or hanging out in the house. I cannot say enough good things about Wanda!!

Gramma Wanda was the best find (and referral from another of Wanda's clients)! We felt so comfortable knowing our dog was having a vacation of her own and loving every minute of it. The frequent updates via text message was so fun to see the things she was doing while we were also vacationing. Our Lida is home and sleeping as I think she had so much fun, she's in need of some sleep. Thank you again, Wanda and we will definitely book with you in the future!

Our dog, Frank, enjoyed his holiday stay at Wanda's, and we enjoyed knowing he was having fun. Wanda sent lots of updates and pictures of Frank having fun with the other dogs. We will definitely board Frank with Wanda again!
Precious loved her stay at Grammy Wanda's house! She didn't even want to leave when I picked her up! To top it off, she was so tired from playing that she slept all day when we got home! We will definitely use Grammy Wanda's again!

As always Wanda is the perfect hostess, I feel that my Ringo is well taken care while we are away, I will always come back to Wanda and I highly recommend her for your pet sitting needs.
We are so happy to have found Wanda! It's a relief to know that our Yorkie, Cooper, is in a loving home having loads of fun while we are away. We love the photos that Wanda sends of all the fun things Cooper is doing!
I have a rather 'skittish' mini Golden Doodle that didn't do very well at Doggie Day Care. We took him for a meet and greet with Wanda and her sweet dog Angel. My husband had to carry him through the door.

The first day I took him to Wanda's, he did the same. She sent me pictures and it was pretty clear he was having a great time.

By the third day - He couldn't get out of the car fast enough and pulled me all the way up the sidewalk.

We are so grateful to have found Wanda (and Angel) and will definitely return.

Love Grammy Wanda :) We just got Finley home after another 10 days with his favorite Grammy. I never worry and always enjoy getting photos of their adventures. So wonderful to know he is safe and staying busy. Thank you so much Wanda
Our Greyhound Veloce evidently received the best of care. According to all the pictures that we received by text showed that he was being well cared for and was having a wonderful time. Wanda was very responsive to all of our dog's needs and we would highly recommend Wanda to anyone visiting the dogvacay website.

Thank you,

Shelley & Ralph

It is always hard to leave your special family members and we were so fortunate to have found Wanda to care for our Finley. She is most accommodating and takes her job very seriously. Wanda was flexible with scheduling which we greatly appreciated. We were gone for two weeks and received texts with photos everyday. We could clearly see that Finley got plenty attention and had a lot a fun while on his Vacay. Multiple walks with Angle and other guests, some swimming, and snuggles on the couch. Finley is already booked for another stay. Thank you Wanda


PS I was really impressed when Finleys bowls came back looking new, she had really made those old bowls shine.

As usual, PERFECT!
Grammy Wanda is great and knows how to make pets and their owners feel at ease. Make sure and book ahead of time, all the dogs love to stay at her place!!
This was the first time that we left our doggy with anyone, but as much as I missed my furry friend I knew that Wanda was taking great care of him, as well as sending me texts and pictures of him, I picked him up today and he was happy and tired of having so much fun with Wanda and the other dogs.

Our dogs love Grandma Wanda's! They get so excited when we pull up to her house - it is a wonderful feeling knowing they enjoy it so much. She does a great job updating us while we are away - it truly feels like we are leaving our dogs with family.
We could tell our 5 month old puppy had a great time at Wanda's. He came back exhaused! He learned some new skills as well. Wanda is very easy to work with and available via email and phone.
Grammy Wanda was great! We dropped our two dogs off on Friday and picked them up on Sunday. She sent us texts on Saturday and Sunday showing us their happy faces! They were happy and tired when we got them home on Sunday. We will definitely be using Grammy Wanda again!

I traveled too reno last minute on a business trip as usual I took my boy along with me is I always do thinking I could put him in doggie day care. There is not a doggie daycare in Reno that allows you to pick up your dog after 630 pm. dogvacay had a solution do my problem. I was paired with a host. I was quite concerned leaveing my dog with a total stranger I could tell she was a dog lover and she could tell I was little apprehensive. She comforted my concerns but texting me pictures throughout the evening. This provided a great comfort and I picked up my boy as scheduled at 11 p.m. I thank dogvacay and especially miss Wanda S for her compassion in regards to my needs and my boy.

As always Wanda keeps Mr. very busy with walks, ball tossing and lounging on a pile of clothes. Just like at home. He is happy to go there and very tired when he gets home. Wanda is a keeper. Thank so much :)
This was the second time I took my dog to Wanda. When we arrived at the front door Chewy was so excited, he could not wait to get inside. He loves it there, Wanda takes wonderful care.
Wanda is a wonderful doggy host! I had some last minute dog care plans fall through and I sent Wanda a message the day before and she was happy to take my pup! She had a huge back yard and plenty of space for my Adelaide to run around and have a good time. I got picture and text updates the whole time of how much fun she was having with all her new friends! I would absolutely recommend Wanda to anyone who needs a sitter for a night or even just the day.

Wanda is awesome! Our dog loves going there and comes home sooo happy!
Wanda cared for my two Yorkies while I left town for a week. Holly, my 11 year old Yorkie, needed special feeding, 3 times per day, due to a digestive illness. Wanda was fantastic and I knew she was in good hands when I dropped them off. Wanda was very accommodating to my babies and even sent me pictures and updates from them during my trip. I slept well knowing they were well taken care of. In the pictures they were smiling and napping. I will definitely use her again!!

I found this site on a google search for dog boarding around here. I was hesitant because I hadn't heard anything about this site, but I am very glad that I decided to try it out. I did a meet and greet with Wanda a few days before hand, and my dog was excited to see her when we went back to drop her off. Wanda sent us lots of updates and pictures, and my dog looked like she was enjoying herself very much. We will definitely do this again!

Wanda has a large fenced backyard with plenty of things for the doggies to explore. My pup was well cared for, clean & brushed when I picked him up :)
If you are looking for doggy daycare look no further Wanda is the best! Wanda took the time to get to know Kye (my dog) and me before taking him; to ensure she was the best one to care for my big boy. She is confidant, nurturing, kind, loving, fun, and spontaneous. She is definitely the pack leader. Wanda cares for other dogs because she enjoys it and you can tell. She is very active and centers her day around the animals’ needs and fun activities. My dog was active the entire time he was with Wanda. I didn't worry a bit, because I knew he was is the best care. Wanda sent me annotated pictures of all the many adventures they took. I highly recommend sending your dog to Grammy Wanda's you will not regret it. Thank you Wanda, we will not go anywhere else. You Rock!

The experience was wonderful! Wanda took Chewy on daily walks sometimes even twice a day. She provided me with texted pictures of my dog which were a total delight to receive. I highly recommend her service.
What a great idea. The site was easy to manage and the customer service reps were friendly and efficient. Wanda S. was the closest home to me i was frantic to find a safe place for my dog. She responded quickly. 2 days away from my trip she invited us over for a fun meet and greet. Wanda was very friendly and inviting AND had more tennis balls and chew toys than we had ever seen. Mr. Busy was a little skeptical at first but Wanda and her dog Angel gave him the space he needed to get familiar. Throughout our trip Wanda updated us each day with texts and sent some of the cutest pictures ever. i was afraid he wouldn't want to come home. Mr. was happy to see me and slept very good snoring like he always does when he is exhausted. Won't go any where else.
