About Hadley

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. My name is Hadley. I love Yorkies! I love to cuddle with them, take them for walks, bring them on errands, teach them little tricks, let them sleep in the bed (!), and give them conditioning shampoos. I've had Yorkies since 1995, and know all about their quirks and unique qualities and concerns. I love to spoil them with affection, but I'm not a pushover. I keep the Alpha dog posture, and make sure they walk behind me on a leash and let me enter the door first! ;)

(I also watch other small dogs, but they have to be hypo-allergenic and recently shampooed because I am allergic to cat and dog dander. I can't watch breeds with shedding "fur".)

We have a very large home in the Five Points/Hayes Barton area of Raleigh, near Downtown. It's a quiet street, with friendly neighbors. Roanoake Park is across the street. We have a fenced-in backyard, so your baby can play unrestricted.

I have a kindergartener and a teenage son, and my husband ends up loving each dog just as much as I do after each and every stay. We love getting to know the little distinct personalities.

We'd love to be your pet's home for the holidays, the whole month while you visit Europe, or just for the weekend. Let me know when I can help!

My yorkie Max just loved Hadley so much. Hadley made me feel safe about leaving him with her. She also allowed him into her home in such short notice. I would definitely book with her again. ??
She was awesome with my Thunder!!!
Hadley was great- it was Bella's first time staying outside my home while I was away. Bella did great. Hadley made it so I was very comfortable while I was away and didn't worry about Bella at all.
Hadley was amazing! She sent a ton of updates and was very responsive. Theodore had so much fun!
Hadley treated my Yorkie like her own family, and I know he had a fantastic time staying with her! Your dog could not be in better hands.
Hadley was absolutely outstanding! She was so great with Brady. You can just tell she has a way with dogs, and she pampers them like crazy! Having Brady with Hadley and Nutkin along with a few other precious pups she was sitting helped him acclimate to a group/pack environment. She even tipped his ears to help with his confidence and worked with him on a little training, which is great! By the way, his "wait" is SO GOOD now! We are working on down, and he's getting it. He loved Hadley and anytime we mention her name or Nutkin his ears perk up! We will definitely use Hadley again and again!
Lola had another wonderful experience with Hadley, Nutkin, and family. I appreciate the flexibility and positive energy everytime and knowing Lola is in a safe and loving environment, thank you!!!
We left our 10 week-old pup (Jax) with Hadley for a few days, and he was so well cared for! She was wonderful to send us video and picture updates, and Jax had such a great time, as he came home exhausted after playing so much all weekend! Hadley is a yorkie lover, and we would not hesitate leaving our Jax with her again, as I am sure he would be eager to go back!
Hadley and family were great - they treated our pups like they were their own!
My yorkie+bichon Lyla loves staying with Hadley! She has stayed with her and Nutkin twice, and now she practically barks for her by name. I had always let Lyla stay with friends or family when I went out of town, but I found myself in a bind about a month ago. I made an appointment to visit with Hadley and felt immediately at ease, seeing how much she loves these little guys. While on my trips, Hadley has sent me adorable photos of Lyla and given me updates along the way. I consider it a privilege for Lyla to have a vacay with Hadley because I know she genuinely cares for her, and she even lets her sleep in the bed! Thank you, Hadley.
Hadley was absolutely amazing. From sending me regular photos of Sev to regular updates I could not have asked for more. Sev looked very comfortable and at ease in their house, and I think he is missing all the fun he had there since being back home. Especially playing with Nutkin. Hadley has a beautiful big home, so it was fun for Sev to run around. I would recommend Hadley to anyone looking for a pet host...especially if you have a little one. I would love for Hadley to take care of Sev in the future anytime we are out of town. I was very relaxed knowing that my little baby was well taken care of.
Hadley was super sweet and great with Milo! She treated him like he was her own dog! Loved getting updates, photos, and videos while I was gone! Would highly recommend Hadley to anyone and definitely plan on using her again!
AMAZING!! Lola had a blast and definitely recommend anyone looking for a sitter to book with Hadley! Beautiful home with plenty of space for your baby to run and play. Hadley sent pictures and videos to my phone of my baby while I was away on my trip so I could see how much fun Lola was having. Thank you SO much and look forward to futre playdates and overnights!!!
We left our new rescued Yorkie with Hadley while we went to the Bowl game in Atlanta on New Years Eve. Our Gi Gi seemed to not even miss us. We will definitely recommend Hadley without a doubt. Hopefully we will visit again. Hadley definitely loves the fur babies!!!
Thanks Hadley, Wendy Floyd
Hadley is two words.... Truly Amazing! I found her on here and she watched my yorkie while I went on Christmas vacation. She sent me daily updates on my doggy and the cutest pictures/greeting cards to my phone. Her home is beautiful and she has a great family. When I picked him up she had made him a report card on his stay while there. And had even given him 2 doggy Christmas toys! Her spirit is so fun, caring & positive. I will definitely be using her time and time again:-)
