About Teresa

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Please Note...Since I live in an apartment I only take in breeds that are 20 lbs. or smaller for overnight stays.*

I have been doing personal assistant work for over 17 years and pet sitting is a part of what I do. I have worked with the smallest and the largest breeds of dogs. I enjoy taking my furry clients for walks around the neighborhood, to the park, and showing them plenty of love while they are away from their family. I am always training for some type of 5k or 10k race, so it is guaranteed that your fur child will get plenty of exercise and playtime during their stay with me. I am a former dog owner myself and I know what it takes to take care of a furry friend, keep them safe and make them feel loved. I am often teased by my friends about how much of a neat/clean freak I am. So do not worry your furry friend will be staying in a clean and smoke free environment. You will be updated with photos and messages as much as you prefer during their stay.

*Repeat customer discounts*

*I can accommodate you if you would like for your fur child to be the only one I keep during their stay with me, but keep in mind that there will be an extra $8 charge per night.*

If my calendar says unavailable (staying at a doggie client's house) or booked... more than likely I am still available to do check-ins and walks. So send me a message if you would like for me to do that. *As of now, I can only do check-ins and walks on the weekends*

I am a very flexible person so If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

*All pets must be house trained, spayed/neutered and up to date on all shots*

Teresa is incredible!! I would urge everyone to utilize her services. She provided updates on how my little guys were doing daily. Also, the caring and nurturing she provided my pets helped to make them feel at home and comfortable as well as giving me ease with leaving them in her care.
Pups love going to Tee for alot of love and attention. They spent 2 weeks with her this summer and she took the day off of work so that we could come pick them up when it was convenient for us!
Baby Girl had a great time with Teresa. Teresa was was very accommodating to pickup and drop off times. I really liked that she required a meet and greet before hand, this allowed all three of us to get to know each other. She also sent me photos so I was able to see how my pup was doing. I recommend her and will be using her in the future.
What can we say about Ms. T? She is awesome...accommodating, patient, flexible with her time. AND no judgement about the fact that Ansley doesn't realize he is a doggy, especially when he encounters other doggies. She's the best!
Awesome host! She's goes out of her way to make both you and your furry baby comfortable! These days my dog walks into her place like it's his! :-)
Once again Ms. Tee was awesome! Patient with Ansley, and flexible with his mom & dad
Ansley loves Ms. Tee! He was on vacay with her for a week while we traveled, we received email updates with photos, and he was super happy and healthy when we picked him up. Highly recommend Teresa for her flexibility and willingness to work with Ansley's 'only dog' issues.
Teresa was awesome! She was super flexible about drop off/pick up times and sent us plenty of photos of our dog, Holling, having a fun while we were away. We highly recommend her!
Teresa is a wonderful person to leave your pet with. We met with her before leaving Gus and she answered all of our questions and spent a little time getting to know Gus. She was even able to administer his eye drops. She took Gus on walks and sent us pictures of him relaxing at her place while we were gone for a week. We felt comfortable in her home and our dog did too. We would have no hesitation at all to recommend her to anyone.
As always we love Teresa. She is the best!
Forti loves spending time with Teresa.
Teresa has been watching Sasha for over a year now! She is an awesome sitter and I never have to worry about my dog when I'm away. Teresa is great with checking in with you and sending you pictures of your dog which I love. I would highly recommend Teresa to anyone and I'm sure my dog would say the same! :-)
Miss Tee is great! This was Ansley's 2nd visit, and he was totally at ease with Teresa. Ansley can be high maintenance, as he doesn't really like other dogs. Tee is very patient with him and ensures he gets all kinds of attention. We will definitely visit Miss Tee again.
Teresa was awesome with my baby! She kept us updated with pictures, took him to the dog park frequently and basically treated him like he was her own. He looked like he was happy and had a great time! I definitely wouldn't hesitate to go to her again.
Teresa is awesome. My two little babies absolutely love her; and I have such piece of mind when I know they're in her care.
This was Mixie's second stay and when we arrived at to Teresa's place, she ran to the door charging in like a speeding bullet. Lol that was too funny. I'm glad Mixie has a place to stay that feels like home away from home when she's at Teresa's.
Teresa is the best!!
As always Teresa does a fantastic job of taking care of Forti. I never have to be concerned as I know that Forti is in excellent hands.
Teresa was great with my dog Mixie. This was the first time I used Dogvacy to find someone to keep my dog while out of town for business. She sent me pics and updates each day on how Mixie was doing and their outdoor activities. That was a plus in my book. I enjoyed that. I will definitely be using Teresa again in the future, she's appears to be a fun loving person who loves dogs and enjoys what she's doing.
Teresa is awesome, Forti loves being with her. It is a good feeling knowing that Forti is in good hands, enjoying herself! Thanks!!
Ms. Teresa was so warm and loving toward Ansley - he was healthy and happy when we picked him up. I'm sure he can't wait to take over her space again in the near future!
Forti and I love Teresa she is very attentive and makes sure that Forti is well taken care of. Forti jumps out of the car when we get to her house. :)
Teresa is fantastic, Forti loves staying with her. I'd recommend Teresa as she loves your baby like you would.
Teresa did everything we wanted and more, and most importantly she made us feel totally at ease and comfortable leaving our "human person cat" Ms. Minkey with her.

I'd gladly use her services again as finding someone who's reliable, and trustworthy is hard enough... finding someone who's those things AND you can sense is a sincerely kind & loving person too is even more difficult. Thanks and you'll be our first call anytime Ms. Minkey needs someone to hang out with. :-)
We loved Teresa!! From the moment we met her, she did her best to make our Yorkie, Juno, feel comfortable even though he is uncomfortable around new people. She provided us with daily updates and pictures so we knew he was safe and sound. Juno had a great time with Teresa and we'll definitely be using her again!! Thanks Dogvacay!
Teresa stayed at my home for 5 days and let me tell you, she is totally on point! Always prompt and extremely organized. She follows instructions (my dog gets medication 3 times a day) and always asks for clarification if she isn't sure about something. She's great with my dog (he's 13 and an attention hog) and I never worried for a second when I was away. She goes above and beyond. When you have an older pet, especially one with some medical issues, it's important to find someone you can trust and depend on. It's evident that Teresa cares for your pet and has a great work ethic. I will be sure to use her services again!
Forti was well taken care of, this was her second stay. She was excited to see Teresa.
I've had several bad experiences with boarding my dog at local boarding locations and Teresa was a breath of fresh air! She was very accommodating when I needed to bring my dog to her earlier in the morning because of a flight and was very responsive when I would call/text to check in. My dog seemed to love her and I can tell she enjoyed playing with her while I was gone. I would definitely use Teresa again to take care of my precious “dogchild”! :-)
spot was very happy and cant wait to return!!
This was the second time Gucci stayed with Ms. Teresa. When we arrived Gucci ran right to her door and started whining!!! Made me feel really good she is just as excited to stay with her and our girl is in GREAT hands!!!
