About Sarah

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Sarah. I love dogs and have had them all my life. I have lots of professional animal care history as well. I have worked in veterinary clinics as a Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist and worked as a Professional Pet Sitter. My household does consists of an 9 yr. old child and 3 cats. We have always had dogs in our lives yet the passing of our last 'ol girl really took it out of me. I miss the company of dogs yet I am not ready to have my own again quite yet.
Your pooch will love their Dog Vaycay with us. We will play, walk, and run. I do work from home so I am home the majority of the day. If quick errands are to be run pooches are more than welcome to come along for the ride(weather permitting, no extreme heat or cold). We live in Gladstone,Or. close to the river and numerous wonderful parks. We have a medium-large fully fenced back yard near the end of a long flag lot. We run, if cabale, every morning and walk every evening before bed. If your dog is a senior, he or she will be walked as opposed to ran every day, to their ability, in the mornings and evenings. We will also have a minimum of one park visit a day. I do have experience administering medication and welcome all cat friendly dogs to our home. I look forward to our meet and greet.

Sarah was great! Super flexible when my return flight was cancelled. I enjoyed getting the pictures of my doggies getting snuggles and well cared for. Thanks Sarah!
A great first stay for Earl and Jess. Sarah was friendly and took great care of Jessi with all of her medical needs.
I think Callie had a great visit with Sarah. She had an opportunity to visit with another older lab which she looked pleased about and a little dog. She seemed happy at pickup. We will definitely be back!
Sarah is fabulous. I feel very comfortable with her care of my little Shelby.
Sarah always takes wonderful care of our dog and sends videos and photos of them playing outside in the snow. Every time we leave Riley she comes home happy and worn out from all of the exercise.
We felt very fortunate to have Sarah watching our dog Lucy for the weekend while we were in San Francisco. Our previous arrangements feel through so we made a reservation with a day's notice and she was more than happy to watch her. She was careful to get all the important details from us and sent pictures and updates throughout the weekend. When we got back it was clear that Lucy had a great time and was well cared for. Thanks so much Sarah for your great work!

Sarah has a great setup at her house, the backyard is spacious and fenced in and her living room is very large as well for the dogs to play and for each to claim their own spot.

Sarah clearly knows how to work with dogs -- when we dropped off our dog he was really nervous and protective of his sister but Sarah knew what she was doing and had him playing with everyone by the end of the day.

Other than that, while I can't promise she'll do it for you, we received daily videos and photos our puppies playing which was fantastic during our vacation. We felt really relaxed knowing our dogs were in good hands.

I highly recommend using Sarah on your next trip!
Sarah did a great job with our dog Jack. It was a last-minute trip and I had to do some re-scheduling with her about drop-off and she was very accommodating and flexible. And of course, the cute pic of Jack cuddled up in a blankie made me feel really good!
Bella is a rescue and I wanted to see how she would do at daycare. She got to play with Gracie and had a blast. Sarah sent videos of her playing. Bella came home tuckered out and happy. Thank you Sarah for your wonderful care.
Sarah was great! She was very quick with responding to my messages and meet all of our needs with Jukon! I would recommend her for your pets care. The pics were great. Thanks Sarah!
This was my first time using DogVacay and I am glad that I gave it a try. Sarah was great to work with. She patiently answered every question I had. We have always used an in home service so I wasn't sure how our dog would do in the company of others dogs..Sarah helped to ease her (and me) into it and she came home after a week happy and contented.
I will definitely have Sarah care for our dog in the future.
Sarah is amazing! I was very nervous about leaving our puppy with someone else for the first time ever, but Sarah and her family took him in and immediately made him (and me!) very comfortable. I loved getting his happy pictures every day! We already have scheduled another stay with Sarah :)
We were so thankful that Sara was able to watch our dog on late notice for the weekend. Benny was happy when we dropped him off and happy when we picked him up. Sarah's house has a big backyard for dogs to play in, and Benny received plenty of attention during his stay. We will definitely be requesting another stay next time.

Thank you Sarah!
This was our first time using DogVacay. We chose Sarah since she was relatively close to home. She responded to my inquiry message almost immediately and we scheduled a Meet and Greet several days later. Our first booking was for 2 nights. Our 4-year old high energy pup came home happy and tired. She had free run of Sarah's home, indoor and outdoor, with lots of yard to explore. She also had 2 other dog guests to play with which was great for her. We appreciated that Sarah sent us photos and video. Sarah was very easy to work with and responded quickly to our messages and phone calls. Sarah is our first choice the next time we have boarding needs for our pup.
Sarah is great! She's always happy to see our girl Stevie and takes such good care of her. The daily updates and pictures assure us Stevie is getting loads of attention and love. Sarah doesn't even mind Stevie sleeping on her couch most all day and night! I would highly recommend Sarah ro anyone.
Great loving host flexible. Would definitely use again. Send you pictures throughout the day but your dog is up to and videos.
Sarah was a wonderful host to my fur baby. I am new to the area and do not have friends or family to dog sit for me. I was a little nervous leaving Cookie with new people.
Sarah kept in consistent contact with me and sent me videos and photos during my dogs stay with her which filled my heart with joy. She treated Cookie as one of her own and I was happy to hear from her and all her family that they loved having Cookie in there home. I will definitely be booking with Sarah again!
Sarah took very good care of our dog, exercised her, loved on her. We will definitely request her services again.
Great communication. Quick to send out daily pictures of my puppy having fun. Would use her again. Thanks
My dog had experienced food bloat for the first time just two days prior to my recent vacation. Sarah was incredibly accommodating with Mia and her restricted diet. She kept me well informed of how she was doing and sent multiple pictures/videos daily of Mia's adventures and newly made doggy pals. I could tell my dog enjoyed her vacay when she got home. Sarah and her family were great and I'll definitely be a return customer! Thanks again so much!!!
Sarah is a great sitter & host and we'll definitely be bring our 4 year old lab Rickson back when we need to board him. The way Sarah runs her business it makes it feel more like home for your dog and not an institution.
Sarah clearly loves dogs, making sure Jackson felt "at home". She had another dog during his stay, so he had a great playmate.
My fur baby is an older guy 15 years old, my regular sitter was not available. So I looked on dog vacay and saw Sarah, I went for a meet & greet with Rascal, and she put us at ease right away. Her house is dog friendly and so is her backyard, he was well cared for and very happy during his stay. Sarah sent me pictures everyday, some while he was playing and some while he was resting. Sarah was flexible with drop off and pickup, I will use Sarah again and would recommend her for your fur babies.
Sarah is awesome! She is super laid back, but attentive to the dog and the dogs needs. Our dog had surgery a week before we had to drop her off, and Sarah made sure to look at the meds and to know how much to give and when. Our dog loves her enclosed outdoor space-a playground for the pups! Sarah is great at handling multiple dogs at the same time with their age differences and all their different temperaments. We are so glad we found her!
Sarah was wonderful with our somewhat challenging dog. Our dog was extremely tired when we picked her up which showed me the quality excersize she received while there. I would certainly go back
Wonderful experience. Tons of updates.
Sarah was awesome. She sent plenty of pics and updates. Willie had a blast and came back tired.
I immediately felt comfortable with Sarah during our initial meet and greet. She is well organized and set up to make sure any animal under her care is well taken care of. She provided us updates on our pet with photos and videos. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
Sarah was amazing and took great care of Taz and Daisy May! They had a great time and Daisy is a bit needie but Sarah loved her any ways. Loved the pictures and videos. We will be calling again. :) Thank you Sarah!
Ruby came home happy and exhausted from playing at Sarah's house. Sarah has a great big yard that Ruby loved to explore with her new dog friends.
My pup Ruby and I have used Sarah a couple different times this year. Each time the experience has been easy and Ruby always comes home tired out from her stay with Sarah from playing so much. Sarah is flexible with pick up and dropping off and doesn't mind my very excited puppy! :) she gave me updates of how Ruby was doing often and I know she was in good hands when I go out of town. Thanks Sarah!
Sarah was great dealing with our ginormous dog who is gentle, but huge and at times exuberant. The yard is securely fenced and offers lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Highly recommended.
Sarah is a friendly, caring person, and was wonderful with Quinn. He stayed 5 nights and seemed to do great in her care. She handled his medications with no problem. There is a nice back yard to play in, and other dogs around to socialize. Thank you again!
My dog Louis had the best time with Sarah! She was very accommodating and has excellent communication while I was out of town!
Great service, great communication, and very convenient. Sarah was very nice and took great care of our dog.
Lucy looked well cared for and I really appreciated the daily pictures Sarah sent - showing Lucy having fun.
Sarah went above and beyond to make sure our Chi-pin with medical needs was safe, happy, and welcome into the home. The picture updates, especially the one with her daughter and our dog spending time together was so nice to see. Definitely plan on having our dog stay there again!
Sarah took very good care of our Mattie - walked her, her daughter walked her, both played with her. I received update pictures so that I was confident she was being loved on. We will definitely have Sarah watch Mattie again.
I was very pleased with Sarah's care and watchfulness of my voracious lab. She exceeded any expectations I had and I look forward to using her again. She has a nice play area for dogs and I recommend her without hesitation!
Mattie was very well taken care of at Sarah's house. She got bit and little walks, loved on and treated with much affection. Perfect for her.She's going again next week for a longer stay and I'm confident she'll be lovingly cared for.
Sarah was great! Our Boston terrier, spike, loved being there. He got lots of cuddles from her & her 8yr old daughter & had a lot of fun playing w/ another dog they were watching. Sarah was great. She was Very flexible & sent pictures & videos everyday which my kids enjoyed :) I highly reccommend her!!
