About Stacy

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Woof! Woof! and welcome to Heads&Tails! We are so glad you stopped to sniff around. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that aren't answered here. :-)

*****While we were adjusting to the sleep-deprived lifestyle when our baby was still a baby (she's climbing with the best of them now!), we limited our dog sitting to the more laid-back guests (think Bassett Hound or 4 year old Great Dane) and it turns out our dog, Bear, definitely prefers to have his "lazy" friends around over some of the more energetic guys (think 1-year old boxer or some labs) who need lots of walks/exercise so if your pup(s) like to run for a few minutes, take a nap, watch the squirrels out the window, take a nap, eat a little snack and stroll through the yard, then take a nap,, run for 5 minutes, then go to bed for the night...We're the vacation spot for her! If your dog is higher energy, please feel free to ask, but please understand that we want everyone to have a good time and sometimes that means we need the right mix of playfulness and downtime :-)****

Our home has plenty of room inside to lounge and a large fenced-in backyard with lots of trees so your doggy will have plenty of options to rest or romp on his or her vacation!

We have a 7 year old son who adores dogs, a 1.5 year old daughter who likes to watch the action from a distance and laugh and a 6 year old mixed-breed dog who is happy to show all our guests the ropes. We love helping the many foster dogs who come visit on their ways to their fur-ever homes and are comfortable with many different personalities and quirks. At least one of us is home almost all day to make sure your pup settles right in!

Our house and yard are "dog-proofed" for larger dogs so we prefer **60 lbs. or greater** (though smaller could be considered if they are particularly low-energy or wide and won't try to sneak under/through the fence.)

For everyone to have a great experience on vacation, we expect that all guests will be child-friendly, vaccinated (including Bordetella) & current on flea/tick/heartworm prevention, house-trained, and dog-friendly.

While supervised (the large majority of the day) we normally let the dogs come and go as they please between the house, garage and backyard through a dog door. At bedtime and if we need to go out for a few minutes (preschool pick-up, etc.) we have generally let the foster dogs we don't know and dogs we know are chewers or have had accidents in the house hang out in the yard/garage (come and go as they please) with Bear, ride along with us in the car or be crated inside the house or gated in the laundry room. If you are concerned about your dog being able to handle the responsibility of coming and going as he/she pleases, please notify us prior to making a reservation so we can jointly figure out a plan that will meet everyone's needs.

Thanks for you interest and we look forward to hearing from you and your furry friends!! Woof!

I had a great experience leaving my two boys with Stacy. This was my first time using dogvacay and I am happy to have found Stacy. At first, I was scared of leaving my dogs with a stranger, but when I met Stacy and her big helper Bear (her dog) I knew my dogs will be very well taken care.
I loved the fact that Stacy sent me pictures of my dogs every day, and kept in touch with me to let me know how my dogs were doing.
I will definitely recommend Stacy if you are looking for someone trustworthy and responsible to take care of your furry, four legs family members.

Stacy and Andy were great! They were very accommodating with my dog Henry's pickup for his weekend stay. I was happy he was able to play, and be around other dogs. I would highly recommend them.
Dropping off and picking my pet up was no hassle at all, and Stacy sent me pictures throughout his stay. Will definitely be letting Bentley stay with them again, he was exhausted when he got home!
