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!

-Spending the night in OUR home: $28 for the first dog; $15 for each additional dog. Rates are for 24 hours.

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!
What a great place for our dogs to stay! Our dogs seem to feel right at home. Stacy sends a lot of pictures to keep us updated throughout the stay which was awesome. Professional, friendly, and a dog lover! Highly recommend!
Stacy is great! Treat's my dog like one of their own. She sends several pics each day to let us know how our baby is doing. Zoey always has a blast at her house!!!!
Was great, dogs looked to be themselves in the pics, which is a very good thing, and she kept in touch very well. Will plan to keep using her in the future.
My doggies had a great vacation! Thank you so much ❤️
Stacy and her family loved on my sweet Doodles for TEN days. I got pictures every day. I never worried about him and knew he would feel just like he was at home while he was with Stacy. He played with other dogs, got good nap time in the sun and most importantly he ate well. What a great vacation for Doodles. Thank you SO MUCH for loving my doggie like I do.

Stacy and her family took great care of our doggie! I will definitely have them watch her again.
Our dog Ariel seems to be going through withdrawals since we picked her up, lol. Either that or she's exhausted from playing outside with Bear. But she had an excellent time and cannot wait to go back!!
My dogs loved their stay with Stacey and family. She did great giving them their pills and making sure they stayed out of trouble. One of our dogs likes to lick his paw so you have to keep an eye on him and he came back in great shape so I know they really listened to us and paid attention to him. She sent us pictures twice a day which was awesome, and they both came back so tired from all the running around and playing in the huge back yard. Will definitely bring them back again!

This was our first time using any kind of dog daycare & it was better than I hoped. Stacy was great, very welcoming & I felt good about leaving my special girl with her. I really appreciated the pics during the day letting me check on her & although, she is not very social with strangers, she seemed completely comfortable when I picked her up & like she fit right in so I definitely plan to take her to Stacy again. Thanks Stacy!

Wonderful!
Stacy and fam is the BEST!! Thanks again for loving our Biggie and taking such amazing care of him. The pictures ease our minds while we're away and let us know he's having a blast at your home!
I don't know what we would do with out Stacy!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!
Stacy and her family are a great family. Their home is sit up in such a way that visiting doggies have their own comfortable living space inside the house, where they are contained but yet can also be involved with members of the family, coming and going, watching tv with them, etc. (This was important to us as Major is inside with us most of the times.) Then, off this room, there is a large doggie door that takes them out in the garage which is air-conditioned. From there, another doggie door allows them to go out in to the lovely, large back yard...completely fenced in with loads of trees.

Stacy was incredible!! She really came through for us at the last minute. Marley had a blast and she even sent pictures and updates on how he was doing. We will definitely be using her again!!
Another great stay with Stacy and her family!
Kadiera (my dog) and I are return customers. I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone!
Amazing as always!!
Bella loved her stay!!!
Bella absolutely loves coming here. We have taken her other places but this is by far my favorite. We have used them multiple times. They have a huge fenced in backyard and a "dog room." They love on her so much! While she is on her stay I get plenty of pictures to see what she is doing! I never have any hesitation dropping her off! Stacy is also super flexible, which is amazing!! I would highly recommend Stacy to anyone! Her love for animals is amazing!!

Stacy and her family offer affordable and wonderful care for my dog, Kadiera. They have been flexible with my schedule and understanding of traffic. More importantly, I know Kadiera is in a safe place during the day, where she can get outside and exercise in the large, fenced in yard.

Stacy was kind enough to send me some text photos of Kadiera's stay, which were great to receive when I had a few moments of down time during my hectic day.

I have already booked several more stays with Stacy and will continue to have her be Kadiera's primary sitter. I highly recommend her to you and your pup!

Another great stay with Stacy and her family! We received a ton of photos and Biggie came home exhausted! I know he has a blast at Stacy's!
Absolutely wonderful as always!!!!
Pretzel had a great summer camp vacation with Stacy, Andy, and Bear. This website only lets you leave 5 stars, but if I could, I would leave 10 stars. Stacy and Andy are excellent hosts and provide a loving and comfortable environment for the dogs they board. I will definitely use Stacy and Andy again in the future when Pretzel needs to go on a dogvacay. :)

Biggie had a great time with Stacy, her family, and with Bear! I felt very comfortable with Stacy from our first message exchange. She sent 5-6 pictures of Biggie per day, which put my mind at ease of leaving my puppy with a new person. Biggie loved his vacation and was worn out from all the fun when he got home. A fantastic first Dog Vacay experience! Thank you so much, Stacy and fam!

Stacy took a last minute reservation to care for Maggie in our home. She was easy to work with and did a great job. We are very happy with our first ever experience on DogVacay.
Lucy Mae's experience was AWESOME not only for her, but for me. She came home from the stay relaxed and exercised and fell right to sleep. I was completely at ease leaving her with Stacy and her family. I have already told all my co-workers about her stay there and would recommend her to everyone.

Did a meet and greet with Stacy as well as a few other dogvacay families in our area and it was clear that this was the place for our Baxter. Stacy her husband and her son are truly dog people and her set up was just ideal for our dog.

Bax seemed to really enjoy his time with Stacy and her family. We were actually worried that he might not want leave after his stay was over lol. Her communication was amazing and she always kept us up to date and well informed.

It's really great to find good people that you can trust with your beloved animals when you can't have them with you. Look forward to Baxter having future stays with Stacy. Thank you so much!

Cody had a blast playing the resident dog and exploring the huge outdoor area they have. Stacy and her husband sent tons of pics to show me how much of a good time he was having. I would use them again.
My dog always has a great time at Stacy's
Great experience and my dog had a great time!
