About Sonya

Hello, my name is Sonya and I along with my business partner Michael created I CAUSE HAPPY PAWS, LLC. Together we offer your pet a level of service a cut above the rest and truly focus on providing an "at home" experience. Owning our own pet service business also means that everything we do all day is dog focused! Accordingly, your dog (at your discretion) will be included in all of our daily activities. Including; Three hours of play time at a private one acre park two blocks from our apartment. As well as countless hours of human and canine interaction outside the park. As a courtesy to our daily clients and dog vacay customers we board a limited number of dogs in our home, where they are treated as members of the family. Please feel free to reach out to us so we may discuss your pet's needs. We look forward to hearing from you.

- Sonya & Michael

Sonya is the best dog babysitter I've ever had! I trsuted her with my Golden Retriever and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and I know they had a wonderful time!
Sonya was AWESOME! Friendly, professional, and always quick to respond to texts and phone calls. Her Uptown Dallas location made drop off and pick up so convenient for me, and my lhasa apso pup had the time of her life when she with her for 5 days. I received multiple texts and videos daily of Peanut playing at the dog park, going on walks, snoozing, and hanging out with her new doggie friends! Sonya was even able to tip me off on possible health issues related to Peanut's excessive drooling that I never would have thought to get checked out. She clearly loves dogs and I know that Peanut will love going back next time I'm out of town!
Sonya was wonderful! Molly had the best time. I felt very confident leaving her with Sonya because I received constant communication from her. I would recommend her to anyone :)
I needed someone last minute to take care of my pup, and it was kind of a weird request. Sonya was extremely accommodating and sent me picture of my pup having fun! All in all, great experience.
This was Pip's third time staying with Sonya and Michael and, as always, he had a fantastic time! He loves playing with Sonya's dog, Sophie and going to the park with them. He came home so exhausted and happy!
I was out of the country without much communication but I got pics of my doggy every other day and Sonya gave my pup daily play sessions and snuggle time! Glad to have her with a dog lover, thanks Sonya!
Another awesome job by Sonya and Michael! Rugby loves them and his time with them. I always feel so secure leaving Rugby in their care. Sonya and Michael have also gone above and beyond by gladly taking care of some personal requests for an extra fee.
I highly recommend Sonya M's pet sitting services!
I dropped Sophie off on Thanksgiving day and picked her up Saturday. Sonya sent pictures and kept me informed of Sophie's doings. Sonya was great at the meet and greet and I felt totally comfortable in leaving my girl with her while I was gone. I'll have no need to search next time I go out of town - Sonya is the BEST!!
I highly recommend Sonya and Michael to watch your pets. They provide a very loving/caring environment for their guests. Rugby just spent the past 4 days with them and enjoyed playing, walking, sleeping and being cuddled while I was away. Sonya sent me several adorable pictures that made me smile. Thanks Sonya and Michael!!
Sonya was available for a long weekend with Bailey. She was courteous and allowed me to meet with her prior. I know she treated my dog like her own and made sure she was happy and having a great time with the other dogs in her home. She and her business partner, Michael, worked with me and my schedule which I appreciated. Plus Bailey seemed very happy and she came home smelling like she came from the groomers!
Sonya was AMAZING! I had never left my fur-baby with anyone before, so I was a little worried, but Sonya set any worries I had at ease. After talking with her I knew she would be the best sitter for Pinkie. (And I must have researched over 30 different hosts)
I received photos of my fur-baby playing with other fur-friends, and updates from Sonya.
I will definitely recommend Sonya to my friends & family, and we will call on her anytime Pinkie needs a sitter. Thank You Sonya & Michael...and Thank You - Dogs Vacay!!!
Everything was fantastic. Sonya was very sweet and answered all our questions. While we were gone, she sent plenty of pictures with Fluffy playing and having a great time.
I was in a pinch and needed a dog sitter for my two puppies the next day. I joined DogVacay and Sonya immediately responded to my inquiry and was able to meet with me that night! After meeting with her I had no hesitations that she would take excellent care of my boys; You can tell Sonya is an animal lover. She was very flexible and had no problem taking care of my sick puppy with a special diet and upset tummy. I think she even came over a few extra times to check on him! At the end of my experience my dogs were happy and I had peace of mind. I would definitely recommend Sonya to anyone looking for a dog sitter they can trust and rely on! I know I will be using her again!
I found myself in quite a "pinch" over Labor Day Weekend. I have two very "human" Standard Poodles and up until this point they have only stayed at home with family and friend while we have been away. This past weekend, that was not an option. I found DogVacay on line and it looked too good to be true. When I read Sonya M's info I knew she would be perfect to love and care for my dogs.

Sonya treated my dogs as if they were her own. She went way, way out of her way to send us lots of "Happy Doggy" pictures and it was clear she spent a lot of quality time with them. When I went to pick them up, they were walking with her with heads held high and wagging their tails. This might sound silly, but they were very happy and content with Sonya.

If you need a place where your dogs will be loved and nurtured, Sonya is your gal! I have loved my experience with Dog Vacay, and I'd use them again in a heartbeat, especially Sonya.
