About Vickie

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi my name is Vickie. I am an army wife and a dog lover with no fur baby of my own, so I have lots of love to give. I hope to save enough money to rescue a fur baby of my own. Until then, I will gladly love and care for your dog like it's mine.

I have 3 years of experience with my family dog Marshall. He is an energetic and playful Chihuahua mix. I walked him 2-3 times a day, fed him, and played with him endlessly. I have also pet sat for my friends occasionally making sure their dogs were walked and fed. I have 4 years of experience with my family bunny Nino, who sadly passed away this year. I fed him, groomed him, and administered medication and fluids to him when he was sick.

I live in a condo with two floors and an extra bedroom for activities. I have a decent sized living room that has space for playing and running around. There is also a small fenced in backyard. There is a park right outside of my neighborhood that is a great place to walk dogs, I jog there regularly. I am also within 15 minutes of several dog parks if your dog likes to mingle.

A vacay day for your dog includes 3 walks around the park plus unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime and tummy rubs at home. I also offer bathing and additional walks. Looking to board your pup for the holidays? I am available this Thanksgiving! I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies.

I must note that I am allergic to cats, so unfortunately I can't offer boarding or daycare in my own home for cats. However, I would be glad to do check ups and home visits in your home for feeding, cleaning, and basic care.

Vickie is an amazing pet sitter! She watched my dog and my rabbit while I had to be out of town. My rabbit required special attention since he was sick and needed subcutaneous fluids and oral medications. Vickie took the time to learn how to give him the fluids and medications and made sure to stick to his strict medication schedule. She takes the time to go above and beyond to make sure your pets get special love and attention while you are away, whether it is providing exciting play time sessions or taking your dog on extra long walks. Vickie truly cares for animals and my pets love her! I highly recommend her!

Vickie was great! Our dogs came home happy! We got photo updates daily and she followed their usual feeding/potty break routine which is important when training a puppy!
