About Harley

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

My love for animals was born growing up on a small farm in upstate New York. I have been caring for dogs for over 20 years. I love all breeds, sizes and temperaments.

I learned a lot about different breeds, and dog behavior in general, while participating in Dog Shows, and field trials with my first Vizsla. I am active in my community helping with lost & found dogs. I also have fostered many pups for my local dog rescue organization.

I don't have lots of guests at once. I only book 3 overnights at a time, and match my guests accordingly.

Services offered

Mid day Dog Walking - Long hours and lengthy commutes can mean a long day for your dog as well.. Let me give your best friend some exercise and attention.
I offer an occasional walk, daily or weekly.

Pet Sitting - The next time you leave your home your pet doesn't have too! Let me come care for them. You prefer the stay at my place? Brisco loves playmates. We're very close to LAX too!

Pet Check up - Have a puppy who needs to be let out, or to just be checked on? I can help! Lets discuss your needs and see how I can help.

Pet Taxi- Need a ride to the vet or groomer, I can help!

Cats! I love cats too and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! Im happy to visit your kitty just let me know what your needs are and I'll provide a custom quote.

My dog has stayed with Harley and her family on multiple occasions. He loves it there and she has always been great in working with me. He loves it at her house so much I can hardly contain him whenever we're close by, he knows it's going to be a fun time! I can't recommend Harley enough.

My pup loves Harley. I can't recommend her enough, everybody's happy and it truly is like a vacation for my dog when he goes to stay with Harley. It's nice to be able to know I can rest easy while he's in her care.
Thank you, Harley and family. Another great stay!! Harley took the best care of our puppy, Windsor. He looked quite happy in the daily photo updates. Thanks again, Harley! We will see you next time!
After 6 days on vacation, I picked up a tired Ollie. I know he had a good time with Harley. We left him knowing he was in good hands, and he was. He got daily walks and lots of love. Thank you Harley. Steve & Doris aka Ollies Mom & Dad
This was the first time we left Ivy (we rescued her about 4 months ago). Harley made friends with her immediately. We could not predict how she would behave but based on messages and pictures Ivy loved Harley, her family and the other dogs in the house. Harley was easy to communicate with, worked with our schedule and sent us many adorable pictures. We couldn't have been more pleased. We will definitely return. Thank you Harley - very much.

Bernie's stay with Harley was great! Harley is super knowledgeable about dogs, was really careful about my dog's injury while he was staying there, had a nice outdoor space for the dogs to play, and overall great place for dogs. We'll be back!
Our dog pepper thoroughly enjoyed her time with Harley. We loved getting pictures to see how she was doing throughout the vacay. Harley was also really flexible with us which made our time away from our dog that much easier. Thank you!
Thanks for another great stay! We will see you soon. Thanks again.
Harley took wonderful care of our dogs while we were away on vacation. We like her so much that we've already booked her again for next month!
Harley really made me comfortable leaving my dog knowing that she would be taken good care of and also loved and snuggled.
Thank you, Harley and family. Another great stay!! Harley took the best care of our puppy, Windsor. He looked quite happy in the daily photo updates. Thanks again, Harley! We will see you next time!
Harley is amazing. Totally dog-centric in all the best ways. My pup loves her! And she's incredibly helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend her!
I was fostering nine pit bull puppies and Harley was a godsend. She spent time with them, feeding and playing with them, and treated them like they were her own. I knew I could trust her to take good care of them, and her love of dogs was apparent. She's great!

Max loved staying with Harley and playing with her new buddies. We would definately have our dog stay with her again!
This was our first trip away from our 8 month-old puppy. Harley was great! with Pepper - he felt right at home with Harley and her family. She took special care of him, sent us pictures via dogvacay (we could see how much fun he was having) and took extra care to make sure he was comfortable. I would highly recommend Harley to anyone looking for a trust-worthy, loving pet care-giver.

You can tell from the time you first meet Harley she loves dogs. Her home is set up perfectly for pet setting. There is no doubt that she treats the dogs like they were her own. There were other dogs there with mine so she got plenty of exercise playing. She came home very tired, which Harley says is a sign they had a good time. I enjoyed the daily photos she sent.

This is the first time I used DogVacay. Usually I would board my dog at a facility however she would come back very tired and seemingly unhappy. Harley let Layla be part of her family, sleep in her room and play with her children. Layla is people oriented and this suited her very well. She bonded with Harley right away. I also got picture updates every morning so I could see what she was up to. When I picked Layla up after 6 days she seemed happy, perky and much less stressed. Overall great experience.

My dog Kona had a wonderful experience at Harley's house! Her house, inside and outside, was very dog-friendly...and her yard was big and a perfect place for the dogs to run around. I would definitely use Harley again!!
Elvis had a blast at Harley's. It was the 2nd time we've used her services and she kept us updated with pictures and was flexible with drop off and pick up times.
Luna had a great time with Harley and her dogs!! She was super accommodating and kept me up on how Luna was doing. Highly recommended.
Harley is a true professional. She's always on top of things and treats your dog as if it was her own. She'll even tell you her concerns and will go out of her way to make sure that all the dogs get along. She sends updates regularly, works with your schedule and most importantly, my sketchy, scaredy cat dog enjoys her and her beautiful family. I plan on using Harley for a long time.

Harley is very knowledgeable about dogs and their temperaments. Mine can be a pill at times so I appreciate her experience and expertise regarding selecting the dogs she allows to socialize and play together. Murphy had a good time at her place, I could tell by how tired he was when he got home! Thanks, Harley!

Harley is amazing! Miloh got to socialize with other dogs and was well taken care of. Couldn't have been a better experience.
Thank you, Harley and family for another great vacay. We will see you next time!
Harley was easy to communicate with and ensured that Nyla was comfortable while I was away. I also appreciate the photo updates which gave me peace of mind.
Great stay with Harley on a last minute booking. She was very informative about what she has to keep Papaya well taken care of. Papaya loved playing with the other dog and LOVED the cow hooves! Highly recommend Harley!
Thank you, Harley and family. This is second time using her services and Harley was wonderful. She took the best care of our puppy, Windsor. He looked quite happy in the daily photo updates. Thanks again, Harley! See you next time!xt time!
Harley is wonderfully skilled with our very busy one year old pup, Atlas. She knows how to allow the right level of stimulation and play with the other dogs in her care and when he needs time by himself. She has many regular clients so getting on her schedule can be challenging at first, but worth the wait!

Here's how much my dog Reno loves Harley. When I walk him past her house, he goes insane wanting to go in. It's got to the point where I don't walk him past there unless he's going for a stay. So yeah, she's fantastic and very good about working with my schedule. He comes back home tired and happy, so I'm happy.

Harley was wonderful with our big, newly adopted, not-very-socialized furry friend!! She realized right off that he had no desire to hang out with the other dogs and went the extra mile to play ball with him multiple times a day & made sure he had a great vacation and made him feel comfortable. The sweetest part was that she texted pictures & notes to our 11!year old who was beside himself at leaving his new bff behind for a whole week.

Harley has a natural love for dogs and it shows! I highly recommend Harley to anyone who wants their pet in a warm loving environment!
Our dog Piper stayed with Harley and her family while we were away Harley does a great job in not only keeping her happy and safe while we are gone but she also keeps us updated on how she is doing so we have peace of mind. I highly recommend Harley and we will definitely be using her services again when we are traveling.

They say a dog can see the true good in a person. I believe this fully. Our Mugsy is genuinely excited to see Harley. Ov
Harley is wonderful. She really loves dogs, and knows how much owners love their dogs. She wants to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy. She's a great communicator and my dogs were well cared for and loved! Thanks Harley!
We LOVE Harley and our dog LOVES going to her daycare! He's blissfully happy and a perfectly pooped pooch after his days with her and we couldn't be more pleased. He's made some great doggie friends there, too. :)
Harley is the best. She has been hosting our Australian Shepherd puppy for daycare at least 2 days a week since we got Sydney in July.

Harley is honest, flexible, and incredibly good with the dogs she takes in. She wakes up early so I can drop Sydney off before work and has just generally done whatever she can to make our lives easier, and our dog happy and safe.

She sends regular photos of my dog playing at her house, and tells me who Sydney likes to play with and introduces me to the other dogs. We always want Sydney to have a lot of puppy playtime, and Harley lets me know when there are other high energy dogs around to keep my dog happy and exercised.

She also is very clear about how many dogs she can comfortably have at her house at a time, and will decline more than 4 or 5 so she can give adequate attention to all the dogs in her care.

We recently moved a little further away but will continue to use Harley because of how much we trust her. I highly recommend her!

Harley was great! From coordinating the initial meet n greet to drop off and pick up, she was very responsive and flexible. She went above and beyond to make sure that Copper had a great time, and that we had plenty of pictures of our little guy throughout the day. Copper's new home away from home! Highly recommended.

Jeremy, Andrea, and Copper

Thank you to Harley and family for caring for our 5 month old puppy, Windsor.
It was great to be on holiday and know that he was being well taken care of. Harley would send daily updates and photos and we could see that our pup was having fun and found new friends.
We would definitely recommend and use Harley again. Harley, you are the best!

Second time using Harley's services and she was just as incredible as the first time. She takes the absolute best care of my Finn and the evidence is in how happy he looks in the picture updates she sends and when I come to pick him up. Thanks again, Harley!!! See you next time!

Harley was fabulous. Super easy to communicate with and totally willing to figure out arrangements for odd hour pick ups. She sent pics that showed Lucy enjoying her stay. Would highly recommend Harley! Thanks, Harley!!
Harley was amazing. Dylan and Romeo were well taken care of and the pictures were very re-assuring. Harley picked them up, dropped them off and was in communication with me during their entire stay with her. I would recommend Harley to anyone looking for an awesome dog sitter. Romeo and Dylan are a bit yappy and can be a handful and Harley and her family were so welcoming. Couldn't be happier with her services. Thanks again Harley and family!!

Harley was wonderful with my dogs at her house. My young dog is very fearful and she was extremely patient with him until he felt comfortable. She gave them treats and toys and keep them very engaged with her and her family.
I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Simply amazing! Harley is the best dog sitter ever. From day one she kept us informed at all times on what Apollo was doing. She is very loving and caring. She is a genuinely nice person who has a profound love for dogs. We are so fortunate to have found Harley.

Harley was wonderful! She kept us updated everyday with pictures and messages. It was nice to see my baby while we were away. I would definitely recommend and use Harley again!
As usual, the worst thing about taking Luke to Harley is, Luke is depressed to be home! Just mopes around wanting to go back to Harley's!

I, and Luke, love Harley. She's a super sitter and is sure to keep me posted with daily pics of our pup having fun at her house.

THANKS HARLEY!!!

Harley is wonderful! My 4 month old puppy has new friends to play with at Harley's house and came home thoroughly exercised after her walks. Harley goes out of her way to make sure the dogs she walks and sits for get the best possible care. I plan to use her regularly now that I'm working away from the house full time.

Ginger was so happy at Harley's house! It was great to be on a vacation and not worry about whether Ginger was happy or lonely...she had lots of attention from Harley as well as her regular schedule of food and medication. I would not hesitate to leave Ginger with Harley again!! Harley loves dogs and takes wonderful care of them. I highly recommend her!!

Harley is the best. She is so caring and aware of the situation of each pet. My little doggie had never been left alone for even a day. Harley made sure she was well cared for but not overwhelmed. Result: a satisfied customer and a happy dog.
Five stars for Harley! She's doesn't think our puppy is a pain at all! She is helping to reinforce potty training habits, which is why we are using Harley for daycare and not a huge doggie daycare where 30 dogs might be peeing and pooping anywhere! Harley is very accommodating with scheduled drop off and pick up times, and always sends me cute photos of what Atlas is doing during the day. We use Harley often for daycare and will continue to do so. Not just a great host, but a great care provider for our pup!

Harley took amazing care of our dog Nibbler. She spent time with Nibbler prior to his stay to meet him, and observe his temperament to ensure he felt safe and happy at her home. Our dog is a puppy and Harley had plenty of yard space for him to play and run around, but also had calm spaces if needed. She had another puppy staying with her at the same time, but took care to ensure that was ok with all parties and that they got along prior to keeping them together. Harley knows dogs well and is very responsible when caring for them, she provides photos, frequent updates, and any other pertinent info as necessary. She thinks of everything, including that Nibbler would be with her on the 4th of July (his first) and she was very cognizant of the fireworks situation and ensured that Nibbler was ok. We would not hesitate to leave Nibbler with Harley again (and most definitely will). Thanks Harley!!

Harley was wonderfully flexible and patient with our new puppy, Atlas. She was careful to take him when she had another puppy there for him to play with. Harley sent lots of photos to keep me posted on how his day was going, which was fun to see when I couldn't be with him. I think we are going to have a long, happy relationship with Harley as our Dog Vacay sitter!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Harley! Our dog, Daisy, had a wonderful two and a half week stay with Harley. Harley was very responsive - she sent us many photos and videos of Daisy playing happily, and she even gave her a bath when Daisy got dirty from playing. Wow! When Daisy came home, she was clean and happy. We just had to schedule another stay with Harley for Daisy, last minute, and Harley was very responsive and accommodating. When we brought Daisy over to Harley's house, Daisy's face lit up and she became so excited to see her! We joked that Daisy likes Harley better than she likes us! Haha. What a wonderful experience for Daisy, and I like knowing that our doggie is in such capable, good hands. I am so grateful for Harley! Thank you for putting my mind at ease and for taking such good care of our Daisy!

Harley is a wonderful host.

She took Missy in just like her own. It was very comforting to receive test messages and photos.
I could tell that Missy had a wonderful time. I now treat her to a play visit between my vacations. I feel very fortunate to have found . I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of pet sitting.

This was my first time using DogVacay and am pleased to say that Elvis, my 8 yr old Boston Terrier was in great hands with Harley! Harley made sure she had all of my information, walked through my dogs tnedencies and food ritual and made me feel calm leaving him in her care. She sent pictures daily, I LOVE THAT! She was also very flexible when my flight was delayed almost 4 hours and I couldnt get to her at the time I originally scheduled. Traveling pet owners understand that this flexibilty is a stress reliever on what is already a stressful situation. Again, grateful for her care of Elvis and will definitly be using her again in the future! -Lisa

It’s not shocking that Harley has a thousand other happy customer testimonials but I’ll throw mine into the mix because she was just that great to work with. I knew as soon as I brought my border collie, Finn to our first meet and greet that it was going to be a perfect fit for him while I was away in Dallas for the weekend. He immediately made himself right at home and wasted no time frolicking around with Harley’s awesome, super friendly dog. Harley was unbelievably accommodating and very thorough in asking all the right questions about Finn’s needs while I would be away. It was an easy choice to go with Harley and I was so happy to get her photo updates of my fluffy guy each day.

What REALLY sets Harley apart though is that she is just a genuinely kind person. I was supposed to be back from Dallas to pick Finn up at around 7 but because my flight was delayed I didn’t end up getting to Harley’s until 10:30 at night. I felt horrible about making her wait up but she was absolutely wonderful about the entire situation. She’s definitely my go-to now any time I need to leave Finn with someone! Thanks Harley!!!

Harley is incredibly friendly and accommodating. She sent me picture updates of my pup and kept me at ease (my dog has separation anxiety). Nothing to complain about from me, would absolutely use Harley's services again in the future.
Harley took great care of my dog. Highly recommended.
Harley is very flexible and helpful.
We have taken Aida to stay at Harley's for a second time now and can't be more happy with her. We will continue to be a repeat guest as I trust Harley to do a great job with taking care of my pup!
Harley is awesome. She is super reliable and trustworthy. Our dogs only required a quick morning feed and 2x daily walk around the block and she was there on time and every time. I will use Harley over and over and highly reco her!
Wish I could give her 10 stars instead of 5. Chopper can be a handful. Harley was patient and kind and very communicative. I was worry free and my pup was very happy. I would reccomend Harley to everyone. Thank you so much!
Harley is wonderful with dogs! She dog-sat for us when we were out of town and walks our dog during the week. I can rest easy knowing she's in good hands!
A 5-star rating is not enough for Harley! She was so good with our 12-week old lab pup, Luke, that he was sad to leave. Harley taught him the commands sit and stay during his four day vacay with her. Also, with Roscoe's help (Harley's beautiful, friendly dog), Luke learned to bring the ball back when thrown. We got updates and pictures via text while we were away and had no concerns for our pup while we were on vacation. Thanks Harley!!! Will definitely call Harley for Luke's next VACAY.

I think we've had our young dog, Leica, stay with Harley and her family 5 or 6 times now and she is the best! To name a few reasons:

1) She is on the ball about communicating. She writes back immediately, whether it be on DogVacay or text messaging. She sends cute pictures too.

2) Her dog, Briscoe, is a sweetheart and gets along SO well with my pup. They share toys, beds, everything while Leica is staying there. Leica is a little over a year so still has a lot of energy and Briscoe puts up with it just fine, he's great.

3) Harley is very upfront about everything. If she has to be out of the house for a few hours she lets me know. She is such an easy person to work with.

4) They have a nice big fenced in yard to hang out and play in, which Leica doesn't have at home so he LOVES it.

5) The day before I dropped Leica off he had to go the vet because his paw had become infected from licking it so much, I contacted Harley to make sure she was OK with him still coming and she was still happy to have him, even with such last minute news.

6) She knows what she's doing, she seems to have a lot of experience dealing with dogs and I trust her 100% with my pup when we're away, and she's the only one I do completely trust.

7) Leica tends to not eat while we're away but he always eats at Harley's. That proves to me that he is happy to be there, and not as stressed as he has been staying elsewhere.

8) You can tell Harley genuinely loves and cares about dogs.

Book with Harley, you will not be disappointed!

We needed a last minute host for our 9 year old lab mix Aida before going away on our 6 day vacation and Harley's home came through for us and worked out perfectly!

Harley is very responsive and really shows that she cares. She would update me daily and respond to my texts within a few minutes. Her house is very clean, and she wanted to accommodate Aida as much as possible. My dog sometimes has an irrational fear of walking on hardwood/tile floors, so Harley offered to put out more rugs for her to make her feel more comfortable.

Harley and her family have many years experience caring for dogs and it really shows in how well she took care of Aida. I would recommend her highly and we will definitely be leaving Aida with her again when we go away on our next vacation.

Harley's 11 year old Vizsla Brisco is also a sweetheart and got along really well with Aida!

Harley is great!!! She loves her dog too, so she totally gets it, and goes the extra mile to make you feel at ease from being apart from yours! I got texted pictures and updates telling me when she was planning on going to see them.
Thank you Harley for taking the BEST care of Travis & Snowy....We know they were in great hands and got all the LOVE needed while we were not with them.
Harley sent us daily pictures so we wouldn't miss them....She treated our dogs as if they were her own...I would recommend Harley to anyone that needs to be away from their pets and know they are in the BEST care......
Harley went above and beyond!!!!!

I have to give Harley five stars because she is an excellent dog sitter and goes over and above. Our dog Max loves Harley and her family. We had to attend an event and I sent a text to Harley to see how Max was doing and she sent us back a picture. We were at ease knowing Max was in good hands. We trust Harley with our Max and that is so important since Max is a huge part of our family. Give Harley a try - you will not be sorry I can guarantee that. She will always be our "go to person" when we need a sitter for Max. Thanks again Harley!

Harley did a great job looking after my high-energy Aussie. Over-night stay was a success. Highly-recommended.
Harley and her family are the best! I have a pup that requires a little extra love and attention and they made her feel right at home. My mind was at ease the whole time for I got constant pictures and updates. I choose to use a service like DogVacay because I want my dog to be a part of family when she can not be with me. Tuesday was welcomed with open arms and I could tell she had the best time and was sad to leave. Thank you Harley and Family for taking such amazing care of our sweet girl. You will be the first call we make next time we travel!

My dogs LOVE Harley! They make noises I've never heard them make when she comes over. It's so nice to be able to leave them at home and be guilt free when I go on vacation because I know they are happy with Harley taking care of them.
Harley took great care of our dogs and was so sweet! She texted us pictures of the dogs throughout the weekend, which made us happy knowing they were having fun and in good hands! I would highly recommend using Harley as your dogsitter! She's professional and was wonderful with our doggies.

Harley was fantastic!

This is the first time I've left my puppy with someone overnight and wasn't nervous about it at all, I just got this great vibe that I could completely trust her to care for my pup.

Harley was professional, responsible, courteous, caring, and fun while we were gone for 5 nights. Leica, our pup, came back happy, well fed, tired, and CLEAN! Not only did Harley vacuum up his bed and clean up his toys before she gave them back, but she gave Leica a bath as well! I don't know what she did differently than I do, but he was SO soft, too.

Harley's dog, Brisco, was a great playmate for Leica, they were about the same size and Brisco is a very sweet boy, and I was told they shared their toys and even bed with one another.

The best part? Harley sent TONS of photos of my happy pup, which always eases my mind while I'm away :)

I will absolutely be using Harley again in the future, and I highly suggest that you do as well!
