About Alayna and Eric

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to the Butler House :)
My husband and I both have a great love for animals. For now we have two kids (dogs) in our family that we rescued and still have more love to share. All of us have been through professional dog training and I must admit we have fabulous manners. Our big dog Kody loves to play and needs some extra attention. Lucky for us, he prefers the K9 play dates. We have a corner lot in a quiet, safe neighborhood that is great for walks. We also live close to Lebanon Hills and a few other parks that are great for walking.
I am a teacher for Saint Paul Public Schools with a split shift. This leaves me free to spend a large chunk of the day with your dog taking walks and playing. I am also not opposed to cuddle and nap time when we are all tuckered out. We are available for daycare from 10am till 2pm as well. I know how important our pets are to us, and how they are an actual part of the family. I want you to feel happy and content knowing that your dog is getting all the love and care he or she needs. I am more than happy to send you pictures and updates throughout your dog's stay for your peace of mind!

***All dogs must be potty trained, please

Mylah had a very nice weekend. She was well loved and even got some snuggle time on the couch with Alayna. Thanks for keeping such good care of her. We were worried about leaving her with a dog sitter with her recent epilepsy diagnosis. Alayna and Eric were just fine with it and gave Mylah her medication as prescribed. Thank you!

Our dog Charlie loved his stay. Thank you!!!
Alayna & Eric were great hosts for our dog. Their two dogs were great hosts also. Plan on using them again. Our dog had some medication needs and Alayna and Eric are very comfortable with administering medications. Very responsive hosts.
Alayna was willing to meet with us before Charlie's stay. She made us feel welcomed and assured that our stay would be great! Drop off and pick up times were easy to schedule. It was great knowing that while we were on vacation our dog was being cared for by a dog-lover in a home setting!

We have been so blessed to have found Alayna and Eric for our dog sitters. They have a loving way of caring for our dog and have demonstrated kindness toward us whenever they have had him there. We highly recommend them to anyone who needs a sitter for any length of time.

Alayna and Eric are wonderful! Peaches loves visiting them. When we get to their house her tail goes wild and she can't wait to go in. They have a big back yard and two very sweet dogs of their own. They were super flexible to meet my needs and I really appreciated it. I would definitely recommend Alayna and Eric.

Alayna and Eric are terrific. They treated our Saint Bernard as their own, and that is a very high compliment. I have already recommended them to a friend and will not hesitate to do so again in the future. Five stars. Great dog people. Thanks!
we have used Alayna and Eric several times and this is the only place Ollie is actually excited about being left at. He runs right to their door, tail wagging when i drop him off. Other places he wont be even get out of the car. This is my go to place for my dog-child!

Alayna and Eric were great dog sitters. Jet had so much fun with them and their dogs. They were so friendly and sensitive to my nerves being new to DogVacay. We had a meet and greet first and they sent me pics while I was out of town. Can't wait to have Jet visit them again!!

Completely satisfied
Having an elderly dog who doesn't like to be at a typical large boarding business, it was great to be able to find a family nearby who was willing to take her. Alayna and Eric were very accommodating and they clearly love dogs. They took great care of our dog and I would definitely ask them again in the future.

Max had another great vacay with Eric and Alayna. Thanks so much for taking such good care of him!
This was the first time Max was boarded with
Eric and Alayna. They took great care of him and instantly made Max a part of their family. I highly recommend Eric and Alayna and will definitely book with them again. Thanks so much for taking such good care of Max!

Alayna and Eric are wonderful sitters (even letting our pooch take Eric's side of the bed at night :)! Will definitely book again!!
Alayna and Eric are a true blessing. We have used kennels in the past, but our family dog would become so stressed that we couldn't enjoy our vacation because we were so worried. Alayna and Eric were great with all the pictures and correspondence that we didn't worry at all. It was obvious when we picked our family dog up that she had a great time and was well taken care of. It's nice to have a safe and fun place for pets. Thank you Alayna and Eric!

I had a couple that I normally used, but after meeting with Alana and Eric, I decided I would like to have them as my pup's new family host. They took excellent care of Dash and treated him as their own. I would recommend them anytime you have to leave your pet. If it's good with them Dash has a new home away from home. Thank you so much for the loving care you gave my pup.

Eric , Alayna, Kodie and Harley were terrific hosts! They welcomed my spoiled 8 y.o Golden/Shepard mix with open arms, and all got along great right from the start. I received daily updates and photos, and they were accomodating to my schedule changes. I think my dog, Casey, enjoyed his time with Eric and Alayna and Kodie and Harley, because he slept most of the next day. I will definitely use them again, as I believe they truly care for the animals !

I used Alayna and Eric to watch Cooper and they were great! It was very apparent they love dogs and they welcomed my dog with open arms. It was nice that they had other dogs so my dog would have someone to play with. They sent pictures which was nice to see. I would highly recommend them and will use them again in the future.

I knew within minutes of meeting Alayna and Eric that they would be the perfect sitters for our golden retriever, Willy. They asked all the right questions and answered all of ours. They obviously love dogs, and their own two dogs Harley & Cody are a hoot! Willy had a great time with them playing and going for walks. They also sent up pictures to keep us updated and to let us know he was doing OK.

We will be taking Willy back to them next time we need a sitter.
