About Sonja

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We love animals! We are proud owners of a West Highland Terrier named Winston, however, we always love to take care of other furry friends!

At this time I am only available to go to clients' homes and watch their furry friends from the comfort of their own home. Any size animal is fine! I am available to stay short-term or long-term.

I do work from home full-time so your dog will be with me all day whether they like it or not ;) I love bringing them along with me on food adventures, and outdoor activities so if this is something your dog loves to do, I am able to accommodate! But to those babes who tend to the more couch potato side, I am more than happy to accommodate! :D

We truly love animals and would gladly give your pet all the love and attention it deserves!

Feel free to contact me with any questions!

Sonja is an amazing dog sitter. She helped me out when I was fostering four 5 - week old puppies and their mom and was so caring and sweet. We even had an emergency one night and she came to the vet with me until the wee hours of the night. I couldn't have done this without her and will definitely be calling her to help with my dog too!
We love Sonja! After relocating to the Austin area, we struggled to find a high quality kennel/pet care facility to meet our expectation for our sweet Luna Pearl when we traveled. After much research (and nearly a two-year hiatus from traveling), we finally found Sonja through petvacay. The moment she and Luna Pearl met for the first time, I knew we would be able to leave town with peace of mind. And the best part about it...she stays at our home where Luna Pearl is happy, comfortable, and maintains her daily routines. Sonja is very easy-going and has such a sweet soul. It is no wonder Luna Pearl loves her so much!

Thank you, Sonja, for giving us the gift of travel with peace of mind! :-)

Sonja was wonderful with our Lucy! She took her out on walks, gave her love and made her feel comfortable. I loved the clear communication and the daily updates with pictures! The communication made me feel at ease with leaving our pup in Sonja's care. We will definitely contact Sonja to take care of Lucy again in the future!
Sonja was fantastic!! She watched our dogs in our home, took them on long outings around Town Lake and to parks and showered them with love. They dined in cafes where dogs are given giant milk bones and generally had a wonderful vacation while we were on ours. They were relaxed and happy when we came home. They will definitely ask for her back next time.
Kona had a great time with Sonja and was even able to play with some fur friends also staying with her. She was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times as we were flying out of town. Kona enjoyed going on walks with everyone as well!
Sonja is an awesome pet sitter! This was the first time I used DogVacay and was a little nervous but Sonja was bright, cheery, and welcoming when I dropped off my dog. Great communication before and during the stay - and a few pictures so I knew my dog was happy and dong well. Great job Sonja - THANKS!!
Sonja was great with my little Baxter! She was completely accommodating to his needs. And sent great pictures during his stay there. I will be using Sonja again!
Sonja was very accommodating when I had to make changes to my reservation. She gave me daily updates and photos of my dog and my dog Torpedo thoroughly enjoyed his stay there. I will definitely use her services again next time!
My dog had a great time with Sonja! From the moment I met Sonja, I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her. She was very loving and kind. My dog was very comfortable with her. Sonja sent me pictures over the weekend and everything went great! Thank you Sonja!
Sonja was absolutely great! We just moved to California and didn't know where to leave our pup Bella because we didn't know anybody, and Sonja was perfect. It is usually a really traumatic experience dropping her off at the petsitter, but Sonja made it easy. She comforted her and baby talked her until I escaped out the door. She sent me updates and pictures and you can tell she is a true dog lover. Bella got lots of 1 on 1 attention, snuggles and love. She even picked up on all her quirks and mannerisms :) I highly recommend her, she is wonderful!
Can't say how relieved we are to have found Sonja. Our lab boy is semi-aggressive with other dogs, and Sonja felt confident taking him in. She was great with him. She took him out with no issues, and was great about sending us pics and updates on a daily basis. Our pup wouldn't go upstairs to sleep, so she camped out in her living room downstairs so that he wouldn't be lonely. Can't ask for more TLC than that :) Thank you dogvacay for connecting us with Sonja, and many thanks to Sonja!
I was a little nervous at first leaving my pups with a stranger since I have never done that. I didn't want to take my dogs to a kennel since they would just be in the kennel all day with a few short walks.

After meeting Sonja I felt very comfortable leaving the pups with her. You can tell she absolutely loves dogs. Next time I go out of town I will definetly have Sonja watch them.
