EXPERIENCE:
I have many references available upon your request!

Vanessa: 5+ years in pet care experience. Volunteer Work at the Sierra Safari Zoo located near Reno, NV. Caring for animals such as sloths, bunnies, Capuchin monkeys, various lizards, wild cats, and etc. My studies focus on Veterinary Science and I dream of owning my own boarding facility one day.

Spencer(My husband and co-dogboarder): Managed various pet stores located in Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and in AL. 5+ years in pet care experience along with exotic animals as well. (Exotic birds, lizards, various salt water and fresh water fish, etc..) My husband is currently working towards his Vet Tech degree.



YOUR HOSTS:

Luna - DOB (04/12/2014)
Very attached to my husband. She's friendly and loves to be held. Does whine occasionally when left alone.

Khloe - DOB (07/25/2014)
She is full of energy. Loves to play. Extremely friendly and sweet. Needs to be monitored when drinking water due to her sensitive stomach.

RESIDENCE:
We are currently residing in a two bedroom apartment across from the large UNLV campus. We have several large grass areas located all around the apartments.


What should you bring? 
1. A copy of the current vaccination records.
2. Dog food & treats (1 bowl). 
3. Travel crate and bed (if needed)
4. Medication. (If needed)
5. Favorite Toys


All breeds welcome up to 25 lbs. Will make exceptions for larger size if we do not have small dogs during the intended stay. Additional fees will apply.

Please be aware there are times when other dogs will be here during your dogs intended stay. If your dog has behavioral or social problems with other dogs please let me know ahead of time so I can properly accommodate you.

Note: I have boarding through DogVacay for almost 4 years now. I have always received 5-star reviews on here and on our personal Facebook page as well. I do sincerely apologize to anyone who looks through our profile. We had our first uneasy boarding experience and unfortunately received a not so good review because of it. I hope anyone who's interested in booking with us will take into consideration that I've received 21 great reviews and there's always two sides to every story. My heart breaks that we couldn't accommodate a family's needs and their pups needs as well. I sincerely apologized and wish they would have reached out to us ahead of time.

Zoe really enjoyed her stay with Vanessa. We would definitely go back next time we are in Vegas
Here's the thing... Don't agree to take in a 3 month old puppy if you just moved into an apartment that doesn't really allow dogs. I made sure to include every detail I could think of about my puppy and requested the reservation weeks in advance to make sure everything was squared away before my trip. The experience started out great, and Vanessa and her husband seemed fit for the job, until they seriously asked me to pick my dog up... for barking. Being in another state, I had to ask around to find a friend that was able to pick her up and watch her for the last night. I was disappointed more than anything because it looked like the couple was experienced and had great reviews, so although I have nothing against them, I felt as though I needed to leave this review for other dog owners who are looking for a place for their pup.
