About Tessie

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rest assured your pet will receive the upmost care while you are away in a cage-free, loving environment! Our home is equipped with a fully-functional dog room filled with beds, toys and water for them to enjoy. We have a very large fenced-in back yard for them to run and play. Meet-n-Greets are not required, but will be provided at the Owner's request. Convenient drop-off/pick-up times! I only accept 4 guests at a time to ensure the highest quality of care for your pup(s)!
Work long hours or just want a day trip away? I will gladly come to YOUR HOME to walk your dog and feed them while you're away. No more stress about them being left home alone for so long without a break!
My job is to put your mind to rest about your pet's safety and well-being while you're away. You will receive text updates and photos during your pet's stay with me. I really look forward to meeting both you and your pet and hopefully build a long-term relationship with you BOTH!!

Tessie is a wonderful pet sitter. She and her family loves their own dogs like they are family! She has been sitting dogs for the last 6 months and she loves all the dogs who come to stay with her. I would not hesitate to leave my dog with her. She is the sweetest person and I highly recommend her!!

We couldn't have left our pups with anyone better! Tessie was flexible, always a prompt response, sent pictures ad updates of their stay and gave our dogs so much love. We know that they had so much fun and we were able to relax knowing that they were well taken care of. Thanks again Tessie!!
I love my fur baby's and decided for the first time to use a pet sitter. I could not have picked a better place for them. Tessie and her husband are so very nice and have a beautiful him and a huge fenced in yard as well as a doggie room just for our fur babies. I got regular updates and pictures and they loved and took care of them just as if they were their own. I would not hesitate to give 5 stars and will most definitely be using them next time we go away.. Amazing
Tessi was amazing. The house was very clean and she lives in a great neighborhood. Our dog really seemed to love Tessi and her family. She came home and sat on the floor and fell asleep pretty quickly. We would definitely use Tessi again and highly recommend her.
Tessie was awesome !! This is a wonderful home to leave your pet!!! I would highly recommend her services. She sent pictures and posts during my pet's stay and treated my dog as her own!
Tessie was very accomodating and very flexible with us! Our pup was happy to stay with her, and we even received updates with photos of our happy pup! She was courteous, respectful, and professional in all of our communications with her. She genuinely loved having our dog over and it made us feel safe leaving her with someone as caring as Tessie. Would definitely use again, and would recommend to all!
My family and I decided to take a vacation for a few days on a short notice. Tessie was very nice enough to board our puppy for these days. We really loved receiving the updated photos of Buddy. Tessie and her family did a great job taking care him.
Belle had a wonderful vacation at the Harmon's. You can always tell her time was spent happy. Glad she was also happy to return to her real home. Lol

This was our first try at the online pet sitter website. I was a bit hesitant about it. We booked at the last minute and Tessie very accommodating. It was a good experience. Our doggie Buddy seemed have enjoyed himself at Tessie's home with the other dogs. We picked him up and he was all puckered out.
Thank you Tessie.
Once again, picked up a happy Westie. She always misses her second family when she gets home so I know she had a great time.
Once again the worry was if Belle would want to leave with us when we picked her up. She loves to visit at the Harmon house! Very pleasant and looking forward to the next visit.
Tessie and her family were AMAZING!!. I have two completely different pooches, but they were in good hands. Tessie responded to my text in a timely manner, and she was just great. Tessie sent me pictures of my little stinkers and when I saw my phone I was just "a smilin" from ear to ear. This was my first time at the whole dogvacay rodeo, and Tessie helped me through it all. They have a wonderful yard for playtime and sun bathing. I truly appreciate the kindness, and care my pooches received from Tessie and her wonderful family. If I am able to take another vacay, than I know who my family and pooches trust.

Tessie and her family were awesome. Belle was taken very good care of during her stay. Our reservation was made almost at the last minute due to a problem with our original sitter and Tessie was able to accommodate the request. Overall, a great choice for us and our dog.
Our reservation was very last minute. Tessie responded almost immediately and offered to meet and greet which I was unable to do. She was fine with it and was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. We received a picture of our boy from one night he was there. Our boy was very well taken care of while under her care and her family is very friendly. I will definitely contact her again whenever we need someone to care for our boy.
