About Hillary

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am 27 years old and have been a dog and cat caretaker for most of my life, whether it be family pets or my own. My fiance' lives with me in the home and also has over a decade of experience with dogs. We currently have an energetic and affectionate 5 year old collie mix. My home is a two bedroom apartment in a quiet community with lots of greenery. I have a large patio great for squirrel watching. During your pet's stay they will go on plenty of walks, with my own dog or solo, play fetch in the fenced in dog play area within the complex, and get lots of treats and belly rubs. Your pet will get lots of affection and one-on-one attention. I have a large crate that can be used if your pup needs it or they can stay in our guest bedroom for short periods of time, We have a child's memory foam mattress in lieu of a dog bed, but pups can sleep wherever they like, I am a student, but have most of the day to devote to doggy play time.

While your pup is at my place, we will go on walks about every 3 hours. I live in a quiet apartment complex with plenty of greenery and a fenced in off-leash dog play area great for fetch or energetic dog-on-dog play. There is also a large beautiful undeveloped area directly off of my patio that is great for long walks full of sounds and smells. Your dog and I can go on solo walks or be accompanied by my collie, Ellie. Ellie has experience with both puppies and older dogs. She loves to play with furry friends, but is great at matching the energy of calmer dogs.

Hillary is a true animal lover! She is great with both dogs and cats. She loves to lavish love and attention on pets. In my opinion, she will do a great job caring for any pet while their people are away!

We loved Hillary! Reese had so much fun during her visit. I appreciate all of the picture and email updates. We will definitely be using her again!
Hillary did great job on taking care of EMMA, emma was doing good for the whole vacation.
Hillary was fabulous with our pet. I appreciated her professionalism and attention. Thank you so much!
I would give 10 stars if the ratings went that high. Hillary was great - she knows dogs, she is calm and caring. The environment is perfect for a dog who is accustomed to staying in a home. She walked the dogs several times a day. Her dog is delightful, and both dogs got along well. She sent pix each day, which also reassured me of how my dog was adjusting. I don't think he missed me at all after the first night. I will use Dog Vacay again, and if in Gainesville I will definitely stay with Hillary. 5 stars two times - from me and from my dog!
