About Grace

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, my name is Grace and growing up on a dairy farm I learned to care for many animals, but have a special place in my heart for dogs (all breeds and sizes).

I currently don't have any pets -- my beloved Abby of 14 years passed away. She was a black-lab, chow-chow mix who taught me the importance of play everyday. I'm not ready to have my own dog, but welcome the opportunity to shower my attention and care for your pup. I have 40+ years of experience of dog ownership of both large and small breeds.

I work primarily from home so your pet will have nearly constant companionship. And of course, has free range of the house unless otherwise instructed. I have a double-lot yard and the backyard and side yard is completely fenced-in. However, I never leave your dog unsupervised or alone in the yard. The lake is a couple blocks away and many city parks are nearby for a lovely walk.

The house has central air and a hardwood floors to provide extra comfort if your pet has allergies. If it's too cold to play outside, the full basement becomes our playground.

When sitting for your dog(s) I will only be sitting for your dog(s). I only take additional dogs by family request (like going on vacation with family members and your respective dogs know each other and get along).

I offer multi-dog discounts of $5. Also offer garage parking of $10/day or $50/wk. In addition to pet drop off/pickup.

I look forward to the opportunity to care for and adore your beloved pup in your absence. I can usually accommodate last-minute situations.

Sorry, I cannot accommodate your cat due to allergies.

I highly suggest setting up a meet/greet if this is your first visit with me and of course, bring your dog(s).

Amos was comfortable with Grace right away and was so happy to return! He came back very relaxed and happy.
Grace was awesome! Amos was excited to get back to her house the second day and ran from the Jeep to the house!! He had a great time and we would highly recommend Grace. Very flexible with pick up and drop off.
Katie came home happy and tired, that's all we want.
Grace is a wonderful caregiver to our dog. Stewart enjoys his time with Grace.
I love dropping Ellie off at Grace's house. She gets so excited when she can run and play in the yard. Thank you for loving Ellie!!
Grace took wonderful care of our Stewie. I highly recommend her. She will be having him again in August. She even taught him a new trick.
Grace is so good with Ellie!! Ellie can't wait to go back and run in the yard.
Grace did a 5 star (Pawsome) job taking care of Brooke. I am very please and when I picked up Brooke she seemed also please. I would choose Grace again
Ellie loves Grace & Grace is super sweet to Ellie. I am happy to have Ellie stay with Grace anytime!!
Awesome experience!

We selected Grace off of DogVacay and we were so very happy with the car she provided. I cannot tell you how much more we enjoyed our time away knowing our baby was in a loving home. Grace clearly knows and loves dogs. We will definitely be using her again.

Thank you Grace for providing this service!

Grace provided a clean and loving home for our Siberian Husky, Sterling, during her overnight stay. She has a wonderful box full of toys for her guests to enjoy and a spacious, fenced-in back yard for the dogs to run.

We will definitely be back the next time Sterling needs a companion for an overnight or extended stay.

We were so thankful to find Grace! From the moment we met her we knew she was right person to care for our pup. Grace's calm demeanor set us and our pup at ease at once. We appreciated that Grace works from home, has a fenced yard, and loved the photos she sent us while caring for our girl. It was so nice to see how much Grace bonded with our pup, we would not hesitate to hire Grace again. Thank you so much Grace, for allowing us a worry free, much needed vacation!
