About Ivy H.:
A previous fashion industry product development manager became a full time animal caregiver.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.
I have been a dog lover my entire life time. I have always had dogs in my family. As I grew up, we had two German shepherd and one American Eskimo. 8 years ago I got my cockapoo as vday present. It was love at the first sight. He's always been by my side ever since. I take him wherever I go. We have a such strong bond that we put a smile on people whoever sees how we understand each other with only an exchange of glance.
My second addition has joined us a year and half ago that she won everyone's heart. She is just as smart and sweet as her brother.

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
It would be ideal if your dog is house trained. Any breed is welcomed.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
Yes, in fact we have two cars and I also work at veterinary clinic.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?
Basically I spend all my time playing with my dogs everyday. They are the center of my universe. When the weather is permitted, we spend our day at the park so will your dog. Or we play tug-of-war at home when the sky has a silver lining.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.
We do not have a backyard. We prefer to walk them rather than just let them run free in a backyard. We can monitor their schedule and habbits better.

Where will my dog sleep?
They get to choose wherever they want. My full size bed is fully occupied at night, but if your poochie can sneak in and get a spot on the bed, we dont mind sharing. I also have two very comfortable sofas with plenty of pillows. The best spot for taking a nap or long rest at night.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.
Mostly quiet streets in my neighbor hood. If your poochie stays with us on weekends, when weather is permitted we will do park trips.

Ivy is the BEST. Milan loves her and misses her TONS! He was always safe, sound and happy around her.
Ivy and her husband are super nice! We got regular updates of our dog and are going to use them again soon!
Ivy is amazing!!!! This is the first time I ever left my baby alone in the 6 years I have him. Ivy sent me numerous photos daily. She made me feel so confident in knowing that he was in good hands. She is very accommodating and I couldn't thank her enough for loving and taking care of my dog.
I highly recommend Ivy and will definitely contact her whenever I plan my next vacation.
I was travelling to NYC for work, and didn't want my dog to be all alone in the hotel room. I have never left my dog in daycare before, and was very anxious about it - all for NOTHING because Ivy and Charlie were FANTASTIC! They picked up and dropped off my dog at the hotel, took excellent care of him, and sent me tons of pictures and updates. I never had to worry. If I end up back in the area for work, I will definitely be contacting Ivy again. She is the best! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

If you need a sitter for your dog, you have found the one. Pick Ivy!
Oh wow! Baby Xiao Xion loves both Ivy & Charlie! Her stay is always pleasant, fun, & she always come back home happy & tired! I love them two. I honestly don't know what I would do without them in my life. Xoxoxoxo Irene & Baby Xiao Xion
Ivy is a fabulous host! Cream always enjoys his stays and leaves a very happy pup! She posts a lot of update photos for you to see your pup on his own vacay and shes quick to respond if you need her. Highly highly recommend Ivy! :)
It was my first time using dog vacay and I was nervous leaving my dog with a stranger but Ivy was great! She was very responsive with my emails/questions. My dog was very comfortable with Ivy and her husband. He seemed like he was having a good time during his stay. Ivy sent me multiple picture updates throughout the day. My dog came home smelling great too! Would definitely have Ivy watch my dog when we go on vacation in the future.
I was a little uneasy leaving Raven w/someone new. I am so happy to have found Ivy. She's a mere 3 minutes from my home if I catch all green lights, super convenient. Ivy sent me numerous photos and updates during the time I was away. I cannot express how much better it made me feel seeing and knowing that Raven adjusted well and was treated like one of Ivy's own. Shout out to her husband too as I saw pics of her curled up by his feet. I highly recommend her if you live in the Flushing/Fresh Meadows, NY area. I will most definitely use her services again should the need arise. Thanks a million Ivy, you're the best.
Always a real treat and vacation for our Diego. We love the often daily photo updates and the fact that he can usually play and hang out with a couple other dogs.
Ivy was great with my pup Sky. We will definitely use her services again. Ivy was very patient with Sky's shyness around other dogs and for that I am greatful. I would recommend Ivy to anyone looking for a caretaker for their pup!
Ivy is great. I will definitely rcommend to all my friends
Outstanding, as always.
Best of the best I super recommend them may babies love every time they stay there .
Amazing Sitter ever my babies love them professional and responsible great people ever .
Most incredible people ever very Responsible and professional ,my babies love them, I will totally book again over And over love ityou will not regret leave your babies with them ;).
Ivy did a wonderful job dog sitting my mini schnauzer, Pepper. I get multiple photo updates from her so I never had to worry about how my fur baby was doing. Will definitely have her dog sit whenever I go on vacation.
We have been with Ivy and Charlie for a year now and Dexter loves doing daycare and boarding with them! We are very happy with their service!
As always, Dexter had fun with Ivy and Charlie! They always accommodate my need for pickups and send pictures and updates throughout the day. For Dexter this is becoming a second home! :)
Ivy and Charlie are wonderful! They are so accommodating and took great care of Oscar. I'm so thankful to have found them!
Another wonderful experience with Ivy and Charlie! Daily photo updates and messages! Brian always comes back a happy pup!
Ivy was great again! Brian was well cared for and Ivy kept in great contact with me throughout his stay and sent me occasional photos of him!
It's been so difficult for my family to go on vacation because our 8 yr old miniature schnauzer Pepper is diabetic and needs insulin injection every 12 hrs. We are so glad we found Ivy. Ivy and her husband took such good care of Pepper. They sent us update with pictures everyday. Pepper was healthy, happy, and even made some new friends (which is unusual for him.) In fact, I think Pepper missed spending time with FaFa after he came home. Can we come visit FaFa sometime? Thank you isn't enough for all of your help, Ivy. It really means a lot to us. Will you help us take care of Pepper again in future? Please~ ~ ~
This was Dexter's second doggie daycare visit. He had a blast playing with other daycare mates. I felt very comfortable with Ivy and Charlie watching Dexter all day. Plus, I got picture and text updates throughout the day! Dexter will definitely be going back soon.
Always a great weekly daycare experience for Emma! Thank you again Ivy and Charlie!
Ivy and Charlie were great! They were very accommodating and Dexter had a great time at doggie daycare. I received lots of texts and pictures of Dexter's daycare adventures and loved every time I received an update. Thank you!
Amazing experience! Hands down one of the best dog sitters out there. Ivy and Charlie took great care of Milan and more importantly made him feel at home and part of the pack! The everyday updates were spot on and made us feel like Milan was right next to us. It was great to see Milan not only happy but that he was learning to be a better dog learning constantly from the pack. Ivy and Charlie made it extremely easy to drop and pick him up, and even groomed him before we picked him up. With such great experience Milan is sure to be back soon.

Thanks guys!!!

Jim, Sandris and Milan
Emma had such a great vacation last time with Ivy and Charlie, we decided to book her weekly for daycare. She had a great day of fun seeing her friends, her tail was spinning when Charlie picked her up in the morning. They were accomodating, caring and made Emma super happy! Definitely will continue daycare again.
We keep going back to Ivy and Charlie because they are loving and patient and our Nikki needs patience! She is doing better with retraining but it's not an overnight effort. They are amazing!!! Plus, Ivy is a groomer and that works out well for us.
We love Ivy and Charlie! They are attentive and caring. I appreciate texts of updates and pix! I got Nikki when she was 3 years old and she's been a challenge to retrain. We so appreciate their patience with Nikki!
Ivy is wonderful! Our dog had a fantastic time and made lots of new friends! We especially appreciated Ivy's regular text message updates with pictures and videos. We will definitely be sending our dog to her again soon!
Ivy and Charlie are the best hosts we've found so far on Dog Vacay. Our pet Emma is a special needs dog who required constant daily monitoring of her weight, food, water and urine. Her food, prescribed supplements and medication needed to be administered on a regular schedule daily. Our dog was diagnosed Emma with Fanconi Syndrome and she was under a treatment protocol to prevent additional kidney problems. She was in the process of recovery when my husband and I needed to leave on a two week stay with family in Argentina. I couldn’t leave Emma with just anyone. She needed an experienced sitter with veterinary experience who could monitor her condition and have access to the vet in case Emma’s symptoms worsened.

It was reassuring for us to know that Ivy is an experienced veterinary technician with the proper training to understand Emma’s needs. They picked up Emma from our place and Charlie sent us constant updates on our first day away from her. I didn’t have international text or phone access so they kept me updated daily on Emma’s condition via Email. They sent videos and asked the right questions regarding her situation. Emma had some separation anxiety and wouldn’t eat on some days. They administered her supplements via injections when she refused food so that she always received the proper dosage. At the end of her stay, emma maintained and even gained some weight which she absolutely needed. Also, emma’s frequent urination normalized during her stay with Ivy and Charlie. Overall, she left in much better shape than the first day of boarding. Her improved condition is critical to her recovery.

Her daycare pup and resident dogs were very well behaved and played nicely with Emma. In fact, when Emma refused food, the other daycare pup would stay with her, encouraging her to eat. They took naps together and played so well. Eventually when my dog’s appetite increased, she ran out of the home cooked meals that I left behind. Ivy kindly went grocery shopping and cooked Emma some additional food and even more so that when we returned from our trip, we did not need to cook. They kept track of all her meals and medication intake in a notebook. They were incredibly considerate, accommodating, caring, and conscientious.

This was an excellent experience for Emma and I highly recommend Ivy and Charlie as amazing hosts. They truly wanted what was best for my dog and gave her the proper attention she needed in order to assist in her recovery. Ivy and Charlie put us at ease being so far away. They provided a warm, inviting, caring, positive, safe and healthy place for our little best friend Emma at a time of great need. I couldn’t thank them enough.
I cannot say how glad and happy I am to have found Ivy and her husband to take care of Lucas. This was his first time away from home and I felt at ease leaving him. Thank you for taking such great care of my baby :-)
Baby Xiao Xion loves going over for day care. She is super active & she loves her sister TT & her big brother Fafa. They all play well together. Baby Xiao Xion gets along with everyone. She is there everyday. We totally trust Ivy & Charlie. We never have to worry about her when we are both working or when we go away on long term vacations. We love you Ivy & Charlie. Thanks for everything!
Very good
My return flight was postponed due to severe weather conditions- I was in a panic trying to figure out how to get home & pick-up Bear in time! Ivy & Charlie were beyond understanding when I texted them and made accommodations for Bear to stay an extra night. So grateful for the continued amazing care and love they give my pooch!!
Ivy & Charlie were great with "My Charlie" :) She kept keeping me posted throughout the day with pictures, which I loved!! When I went to pic up Charlie he smelled great!! Thank you both again!!
We love u Ivy & Charlie! Thank you so much for everything. Baby Xiao Xion is there everyday at daycare & she loves it there. She doesn't want to go home some times. She just wants to keep playing all night & all day. xoxoxox ... -Irene
I am soooo very pleased & thank god for the last minute help to both Ivy & Charlie. Baby Xiao Xion was in the best of hands & I had no worries. What am I going to do without Ivy & Charlie? I love u both soooo much! Thank you.
Ivy & Charlie... I love you guys! Every time baby Xiao Xion comes home from day care she was very happy & tired & ready to go to bed. She loves to play & spend time there in day care. She is such a happy dog. We love you guys! We were able to go away on vacation with no worries. Thanks again!
Our #1 and only dog sitter! All I need to say to my pooch is "Wanna go see FaFa & TT" her tail starts wagging and she's waits for me at the door! LOL They are Paw-fect!
We can't say enough about this wonderful service! Our dog gets so much love during her stay, she gets to play with her BFF's all day long and Mommy and Daddy can enjoy a day or so without any worry. It's a Win Win situation all the way around! So blessed to have found you!
Ivy & Charlie are simply the best! They really do go above and beyond in caring for Bear (taking him to get his vaccines and being extremely accommodating of my hectic schedule). I love the pictures and videos they send me throughout the day of Bear and his playmates. Really fortunate to have found such wonderful sitters!!
My dog is very important to me. Ivy kept me updated during the entire stay. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog with Ivy again.
Ivy is super nice. This is my first time leaving my pup for such a long time and I was so nervous. But Ivy is so nice and take good care of my pup and also kept me updated.
Ivy and Charlie were such amazing and caring hosts. We loved the daily pictures and detailed updates of our little guy. Our own Charlie came back with his hair/ bangs trimmed (complimentary) and smelling great. We also love and appreciate the pick up/ drop off service. We will definitely continue to go to them knowing our pup had such a wonderful time :)
Had great experience leaving my dog, Oreo with Ivy. She sent me multiple pics and msgs every day. He seemed to love the compny of her two dogs, TT and Fafa. She was even kind enough trim the hair around his eye and clip his nails. I would definitely leave Oreo in her care again!
Bear had a blast at Ivy's she kept me constantly updated with adorable pics on how he was doing and she did a fantastic grooming job on him. They're the best!!
Ivy & Charlie have been our go-to people for a reason. They have a lot of experience handling pets, especially having watch our baby Kito from 3 months of age. They're careful when they cut his nails and take care when exposing him to new experiences and we continue to keep coming back. You guys are awesome. Thank you!
Ivy, The bone pillow with Kito's named sewed into it was so cute. Thank you for the gift. Kito loved it! He was chewing on it for the rest of the day like his fun just carried over after he'd left from your house.
Charlie always drops Kito off on time and never forgets to leave anything behind. Thanks, Charlie!
Dear Ivy & Charlie, Thank you for the complimentary nail trimming and bath! Kito looks so handsome and dapper :)
Kito always comes back pooped and happy when he's spent a day with Charlie and Ivy. Thanks again!
Ivy is amazing, she was able to pick up my 4 pound Yorkie for $5 (each way) and that saved me a lot of time and it was so convenient. She is such a great caretaker and she keeps you up to date with photos daily, and her other pups seem to get along so great with my pup. My pup never liked other dogs but really seemed to take to the ones she cared for and owned! I am so happy that this is a big stepping stone for my pup to be social. She is also a groomer and even trimmed my pups face. Thank you so much Ivy, I am a forever client now!
Always great :) Moley is always excited to see them!
Wow, there isn't a more comforting feeling than leaving your dog with someone who is so excited to see her, she runs and sweeps her into her arms!

Ivy was an incredible dog sitter! She gave our little pup the kind of love and attention we give her ourselves and felt so confident with Penny in her care.

There were multiple daily updates with pictures, texts AND videos. Penny seemed thoroughly entertained as well as cared for and we will continue to work with Ivy in the future.
Mole is always excited to see Ivy and Charlie. As always, I recommend!
Always a pleasure having Charlie and Ivy take care of my Moley :) They always send me videos during play time and update me during the day and when he's returned to me. Will always recommend them!
Ivy was wonderful with Brian. I scheduled a meet up prior to the stay and she was very accommodating. Her partner had adequate space and had a lovely balcony for dogs to sit on to lay in the sun. She sent me texts throughout but what I loved most were the daily emails full of photos of my dog. I was able to relax knowing that Brian was having so much fun and being well taken care of. Pick up and drop off were also easy. I was running late and early both times and she was very accommodating. Her dogs are also super adorable and friendly!
Cocoa, my shih tzu, loves staying at Ivy's house. Ivy and Charlie take excellent care of Cocoa. She is taken for numerous walks, has drops put in her eye and is carried up and down their staircase, as she does not see that well. Cocoa needs extra care and Ivy and Charlie are always there to meet Cocoa's needs. They never complain about anything extra that they have to do. They are very loving and are very flexible about drop off and pick up times. A special perk is that they take pictures of Cocoa and e-mail them to us. As we were in France, we were receiving pictures of Cocoa and it was awesome. I am so comfortable leaving Cocoa with them and know that she is in great hands. This allows my husband and I to enjoy our time away without any worries. What more could you possibly want. They are the real deal!!
Buddha had an awesome stay with Ivy and the other dogs. Very accommodating to Drop off and pick up times. I appreciated the daily updates of photos and videos, it made me more relaxed and at ease so that I was able to enjoy my vacation as well as Buddha did.
My reservations with Ivy and Charlie are always great. Mole is always taken care of and I know it because I'm updated so often. They're the only people I know who would pick up so early in the morning and drop off when I like-- it's always appreciated.
As always, Ivy and Charlie were the best :)
Ivy and Charlie have been the best hosts ever!

They've been very informative of my puppy's stay while I'm at work, and that really puts my mind at ease. They're always sending me pictures and updates and when they return Mole to me, he is always in a good mood and I know they make sure he's happy and healthy while I'm away.

Their pickup and drop-off services are SUPER convenient for me, as I have to wake up and go to work very early and not a lot of people are willing to drive that early in the morning to pick my puppy up. They are on time, every time!! On top of that, their pricing for that service is very reasonable (their pricing in general is!).

I love having Mole stay with Ivy, Charlie, Fafa, and TT. They are all very sweet, caring, and knowledgeable (knowing Ivy is in the field with animals is another thing I like!)... I would recommend their services a million times over. :)
Just wanted to thank Ivy and Charlie for doing such an amazing job watching our Havanese fur-babies (Baci & Bella) while we were away for a few days in July.
Can't express how happy we were! Our dogs loved being with them, they made it super easy for us to go away and feel comfortable leaving them. We did a meet and greet and told Ivy all about our dogs little habits and their likes and what they love to do and she and her husband were most obliging. We left our 6 month old puppy with them who was known to have accidents sometimes and since she has been home, she has had no accidents - thanks to Ivy and Charlie! They were so great on positive reinforcement that they actually helped train her. Our 3 year old Baci likes to sleep in the bed with us, and Ivy actually encouraged Baci to sleep in the bed with them when he was apprehensive. Our dogs got along so well with her dogs and came home so exhausted from their time away because they did a great job keeping them active by walking them numerous times a day and constantly stimulating them thru play, I really can't say enough about how happy we were. Ivy and Charlie were so great on keeping us posted with our dogs that they sent videos, pics and even little messages with their daily activities. It was great. We even asked that Ivy give our dogs a bath before picking them up and she went above and beyond by trimming and filing their nails! She even made them little chew toys which they love!!!! We are looking forward to planning our next vacation because we know our fur-babies will be in great hands!!! Thank you so much!!! Nancy P.
Ivy and her husband are great! They are always updating me on Lana. We can tell that Lana had a great time with her family. This is the second time Ivy cares for Lana and we will definitely be coming back.
Ivy and Charlie are great. My dog can get a little agressive around other dogs and Ivy assured me that wouldn't be a problem. When I went to pick them up they were both fine even with me holding one of Ivy's own dogs. Ivy and Charlie were both very attentive and gave me daily updates without me even asking. I would definetly recommend them to any of my friends that need a place to board their dogs.
Ivy was very considerate of our situation from our convenience, peace of mind, and with our teething rambunctious Shiba Inu puppy.

From the moment we left Kito with her, we were concerned that Kito would be handful, but upon hopping the bus - she'd already sent a video of Kito playing nicely with the puppy he'd initially been weary of! She was great about taking the initiative to send us updates via email and really seemed to know what she was doing.

She was also very helpful with travel accommodations as we live pretty far apart in regards to public transportation and only charges $5 for pick up/drop off. Very reasonable and saves a lot of time. On top of that, she's also very prompt!

We hired her again for daycare after we got back from our weekend trip. Would definitely recommend her services.
Ivy and her husband were very responsive and caring. Our dog was very well taken care of. They sent pics along the way to show that she was happy and getting along with her dog. I would definitely use them again and highly recommend them.
Ivy and her family are really amazing and helpful. They were not only providing the basic care and activity for Beso, but also teaching him how to behave better at home and interact / playing with other dogs. Beso is making progress in his stays with Ivy's family. Beso was so excited to go to Ivy’s home and so happy when he came home every time. I am very grateful for their help and service.
I did not expect as much communication as I received from Ivy and her husband - texts and pictures while we were away! I am so very pleased with their care and will book them again for future trips.

Since Nikki is newly adopted I was concerned that separation anxiety would be a problem but she received the utmost love and attention from this couple.

Can I give them 10 stars????
I love Ivy. She will definitely give a lot of care & love for your pet. When we had left our baby Xiao Xiong with her & Charlie, which by the way is also great by the way. I had no worries. Also they will give you updates every day regarding your pet. I will be using Ivy's services in the near future for all other services. We are extremely happy with her & Charlie. They will give the same love to her as if she was one of their own dogs. Talk about true dog lovers. Thank you so much Ivy. I will see you & Charlie real soon.
Ivy and her husband took care of our 7 month all pup. He absolutely loved it and so did we, knowing he is in good hands. They also send me pictures of our little guy during the day. I would definitely recommend Ivy and Charlie to others!
This was my dog Chazz's second time staying with Ivy.He got very comfortable, much faster, this time. Which made me feel very good, while on my vacation. Her daily updates and photos, helps a lot.I know from now on,when I have to travel, Ivy and her husband will be taking care of him for sure.
Thanks Again...........Chazz Mom, Olivia
This experience by far was the best! As a nervous pet owner this couple provided me with comfort and ease throughout the entire process. We were provided with frequent updates from the time we left until the time we came home. The pics and videos helped so much. They were extremely understanding about my dogs "home cooked" meals, which was a major plus, as my terrier is so fussy with her food. She had a ball with the owners dogs, FaFa & TT and kept so busy the entire vacay. They even took her out to the park for a day! I could really tell how tired she was when we got back home. It was a vacation for her too! Our flight arrived late and they accommodated a late pick up as I couldn't be home without her by my side (another extra plus!) My dog was treated with the utmost TLC that any Mom could wish for. She was even allowed to sleep on the bed as she does at home. I highly recommend the Happy Mutt House and I am so grateful to say that this is the beginning to a wonderful relationship. Now I can go on vacation and actually enjoy myself. :)
Ivy is great! It was our first time using dog vacay, and Ivy is an absolute gem. She made us feel comfortable and Lana had a blast with Ivy's dogs. She would email us photos of Lana amd videos as well. We are happy and gratefully for Ivy's attention given to Lana. We recommend her and we already have our next trip planned and we will be returning to Ivy.
I am very happy and lucky to find Ivy’s family to take care my little boy, Beso. Ivy and her husband is a big dog lover. They are very pleasant, patient, understanding and accommodating. Beso was misbehaving on his first day staying with Ivy. Ivy and her husband were very kind and understanding that they did not expect Beso to be perfect on his first day. They were closely monitoring, providing guidance and correcting his behavior to teach him the correct manner. After the 2nd time staying with Ivy’s family, Beso was better behaved. He was a happier and calmer dog when he went home. He also has 2 new friends, Fafa and TT. I will keep sending Beso as soon as Ivy and her family are available.
Ivy is super! She took care of my baby girl, she sent me a lot of pics and video which i've been watching so many times! I'm so happy that I chose a happy loving families for my dog, my dog took over fafa's bed:P, she even slept with Ivy's husband LOL, i'm positive my dog had a wonderful weekend with them! btw, Vegas had a nice bath before i got her home, she looks fluffy and smells good! I will come back for sure!
A night with Ivy come back a very happy dog!! def would go back again and again!
Ivy watched my dog Chazz,who is 10 years old,for 6 nights.She had a lot to do for him.He is on 2 medications.Can only eat prepared chicken and vegetables daily.He has arthritis in both his back legs,so he is unable to do stairs.Ivy did not have a problem caring for him,with all his problems.I am highly recommending her for a host for your pet.I have already made arrangement for Chazz next stay.She also gave him a great hair cut.
Chazz Mom Olivia
I would rate my dogs stay with ivy a 5 because she was such an excellent host. She text me pictures and updates throughout my trip. My dog seemed to really love her, her husband and all the dogs she got to play with during her stay. I appreciated her prompt responses to everything. I really can't thank her enough. I would recommend her to everyone!!!
Frosty is so ready to go back again!
Love the environment and the resident dogs. They are so gentle and friendly. Mocha had so much fun staying with them. He's so looking forward to go back already.
