About Alison

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I grew up with dogs (German Shepherds & German Shorthaired Pointers), cats, horses and even an albino rat. I am back in school at NC State for electrical engineering so most of my time is spent at home studying & doing school work or relaxing with my Pomeranian Dakota. I love animals & find them to be a great way to relax from engineering school so let me help you & your pet have a relaxing vacay.

I can watch 1 dog at a time at my apartment and multiple dogs at a time if it is at the owner's home.
For dogs staying at my home, my dog is about 12 years old, so he would do best with pets that are not really hyper.

The longest I'm gone is usually about 4 hours at a time for classes.

I live in a new apartment complex with a fenced in dog park. I am also 2 blocks away from Fletcher Park. I live less than 10 minutes from Oakwood Dog Park which I go to with Dakota sometimes so if your dog would like that we can do a mini trip for them also to Oakwood.

I give my dog medication 3 times a day so if your dog needs oral meds that is no problem.

I love cats and Dakota has experience around cats, he barely even notices they are there.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

Great and reassuring experience.
Allison was wonderful. Sadie was well cared for. Allison was attentive and asked great questions about sadie's needs and temperament. She put us very much at ease. I would happily hire Allison again!
I would recommend Alison to anyone!
Alison took great care of Herbert. I loved getting pictures and updates on him. I will definitely be booking with her next time.
Luna had a great time staying with Alison! She was happy and tired when I picked her up, and she even missed her new doggie friend, Dakota, when I brought her home. Alison was great about sending me pictures to let me know how Luna was doing, and she was very understanding about my schedule! I definitely plan to have Luna stay with her again if possible!

My dog Pancho had a wonderful stay with Alison and her dog Dakota. Pancho is 15 years old and has special requirements to take care of him. Alison took the time to learn about how to take care of him and she did a great job with it. Pancho must have really had a great time because when I came to pick him up he even tried to follow her back to her apartment instead of coming home with me! Alison and Dakota were awesome and I will definitely have her watch Pancho again!

This was my first experience with DogVacay. Alison is a great representative for the service and a great fit for my dog and me. She shared info and pictures daily and I have already scheduled our next stay.
Alison is a God send and I know Blitz had an amazing time. Alison knew just how to make him happy and the pics she sent reflected that; cuddle time during a rainstorm, sleeping in the sun on the deck and a new buddy in her dog Dakota! Alison took plenty of time to get to know Blitz's habits and requirements so he would have the best experience. You know she cares and is very thorough to be a good sit-in while we were away. I would recommend her again without hesitation.

Alison was awesome! She promptly responded to all my messages and questions, right from the time I requested a meet-and-greet. She came by on time to pick my dog up and was constantly in touch after that each day that Izzy stayed with her. I got regular updates, and she cared for Izzy like her own. Alison's dog, Dakota, is a really chill dude and he got along with Izzy just fine. I'd definitely recommend using Alison's dog-sitting services in Raleigh.

Wonderful experience with Alison! She sent me multiple pictures while I was away and I felt very comfortable leaving my furbaby with her. I will absolutely use her in the future!
Absolutely 10 out of 10. Alison was amazing with Sadie, I have nothing but great thoughts about the whole experience. My trip was a last minute situation and this was my first experience with dogvacay. Alison was very understanding and helpful explaining process and meeting with short notice. Dakota (her dog) was such a well behaved, chill companion; a happy helper welcoming Sadie to a new place. I received daily updates and was even able to pick Sadie up as soon as I returned,which was a day early.
I highly recommend Allison for anyone who wants their furry friend to be in safe and happy care.

Would do it again anytime! Very friendly. During our vacation she sent us pictures every other day so we knew how Millie was doing. Recommend to anyone who considers a dog sitter.
Alison was so flexible in adjusting to my schedule and very kind. She kept me up to date with pictures and my dog came back happy as a clam!
We LOVE Alison!!! This is my first time ever using a service like dogvacay and I was very pleased. Alison was the first person I reached out to and honestly the only person I really looked into. We had a meet and greet that went very well and from that I decided to leave my dog with her for a weekend. Alison was very caring, attentive, and understanding with my dog, Teddy, but that is her nature-she is s very lovely person who has the dogs best interests at heart. She checked in with me via text and sent photos while I was away, which was very nice and made me feel at ease being away. Alison is so great, and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you Alison!

Alison was great! We spent an hour getting to know each other and our dogs during our Meet & Greet so I felt very comfortable leaving Jack with her that weekend. She sent texts, pics and videos which was very much appreciated. He looked very happy on the many walks Alison took him on as well as sleeping on her bed :) I happened to get stuck in Houston and Alison was very flexible and able to keep Jack an additional 2 nights with no problem. I felt very confident that my dog was in good hands and I could tell Jack really liked her. Dakota was nice to share his mom and got along well with Jack. I will definitely use Alison again!

Alison is great! I had to send my pup for boarding due to an out-of-town itinerary. I came across Alison's profile and asked her availability just one day before I headed off. She was quite flexible and accepted the reservation quickly. Then during my trip out of town Alison sent me great pictures from which I could tell Dami was really happy. I very much appreciated Alison taking care of my NAUGHTY boy when I was off. And I'll definitely recommend Alison for anyone who need someone to take great care of their pups. btw Alison lives in a very nice area which is close to downtown raleigh.

Alison E was extremely attentive to Brodie giving him playtime at the dog park and personal attention. I appreciated the communication while I was out of town.
I had an unexpected change of plans and she was very flexible which helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Alison and will definitely have Brodie stay with Alison again.
