About Stephanie

Hi there! I would love to take care of your precious dogs while you're away! With my large yard, situated close to Sandy Beach and beautiful walking paths, your furry friend is guaranteed to have a fantastic time with me! If your dog is playful he/she will love playtime with my dog Keiko along with 2 long walks everyday! I treat my animals like family, so if your dog sleeps on the bed, couch, floor, in a kennel or outside, I will do whatever it takes to make them feel right at home :)

I am currently starting the Animal Behavior and Veterinary Technician Degree online with Olds College. I am certified in animal first aid & CPR. So don't worry if you feel your dog has some behavior issues, anxiety, health problems etc, they will be in good hands! And since i'm doing online education you're pups will have my full time supervision!

**experience caring for many medical conditions such as, mega esophagus, hypoglycemia, hyperthyroidism, severe allergies to food/environment, etc.


No dog is too young or too old, they're all welcome in my home :)

*lower price offered for families with 2 or more dogs

Also able to provide with no extra charge:

*separate eating/sleeping areas
*specilized medical attention
*private walks

As always Stephanie was fabulous with Wrigley
Stephanie was an awesome host. Commy came home happy and content. She even took the time to help him learn to get along with cats. I would recommend her to anybody.
Stephanie's knowledge and professionalism exceeded our expectations! She took care of our dog Bonsai with so much love and enthusiasm. She updated us with pictures and kept him healthy and busy everyday! After past bad experiences, Stephanie provided the best care possible!! Thank you Stephanie! Bonsai misses you already!

Awesome as usual. Stephanie and Keiko take such good care of Wrigley..
awesome job, very caring and genuine. WIll use again and highly recommend!
Stephanie was awesome! Porsche had never stayed with anyone who she did not know before, so we were worried about how she would do, but Stephanie did an amazing job of making her feel so at home that I think she is a little sad to be home! The picture updates she sent made us feel great about how Porsche was doing and I would recommend Stephanie in a heat beat!

Hank and Graycie love it there. They make lots of new friends. I love to see how excited they are when I let them out of the vehicle and they run to her front door. They are treated so well and get to be dogs.
Stephanie and Keiko were amazing. Hank and Graycie had a great time. They made new friends and played all day. They will be back for sure. Thank you very much for being so good to them. They were very happy puppies at the end of the day.
Stephanie is awesome as usual. She treats Wrigley like her own and I know he had a blast with her, Oliver and Keiko for the day.
Eli had the time of his life! We were a little bit nervous to leave our dog with someone we didn't know, but as soon as we met Stephanie we knew he would be in good hands! She kept us up to date with pictures every day and I almost felt sad when we picked him up and he had to leave his friends ;)

We had a delay on our way back and we were able to pick him up late at night without a problem! I would recommend Stephanie to everyone who is looking for a sitter that treats your dog like its their own! Eli will definitely be back ;)

We LOVED Stephanie and Kieko! they were great hosts and had so much fun together. Stephanie sent photo updates and kept in touch. She is very accomodating to Zoe and Scout (sleeping on the bed) and I highly recommend her. My dogs will be back to see her again!

Kanaes 5th stay with Stephanie and kieko and she came home happy as always :) definately recommend! The insurance offered definately makes leaving our pup with some piece of mind.
Stephanie and Keiko were absolutely amazing. From the moment I dropped Wrigley off I knew he was in good hands. Stephanie keeps a great clean home and from that I knew she takes great pride in what she does and the care she provides for the doggies in her care. The pictures and updates she sent for each day Wrigley was there was really great and made me smile.
Stephanie is amazing and I am certain I have found Wrigley's new sitter and new boy friend.
For anyone looking for a sitter who will let your hound be a hound and have a ton of fun, Stephanie is your host.
Wrigley cannot wait to come again.

Kanae loves going to Stephanie's house, I think her favorite part is seeing her best buddy kieko! Stephanie is great, her relaxed approach works great for making Kanae feel at home. She gets walks/park and a lot of cuddles! I would definitely recommend her to anyone who views there pet as a family member! It's definitely less stressful than a boarding facility who lock in cages as we do not kennel Kanae. Thanks Stephanie and kieko for making our girl feel loved and happy

This is my 3rd booking with Stephanie and she will definately be spending more time with kieko !!

Many thanks to Stephanie! Mojo had such a great time. Stephanie was so amazing with each and every dog, and knows all about the different personalities and needs of each pup. I was more than confident that Mojo would be in good hands and had absolutely no concerns. Stephanie is so accommodating, and Mojo cannot wait to go back and play with his new buddies. Thanks again! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone :)

Stephanie is awesome. She came across knowledgeable, caring and a total and real dog person.

Both dogs came home quietly and happy, so I know that they were well exercised and well treated.

And I am SOOO glad she carries the insurance, as Beric got injured (wiped out on the ice while running), so when we came home, there was no hassle with vet bills or insurance. She took such good care of both dogs that I would not hesitate to book with her again.

Storm just came back from his second stay at Stephanie's, and had a wonderful time! We think that he actually was sad to leave his new buddies behind! We were extremely pleased both times with Stephanie's care. She REALLY loves dogs, and it's easy to see. We definitely recommend her, to anyone. We were so nervous to leave our buddy behind, but knowing that he was in such good care made it much easier. THANK YOU!!!

Stephanie was great and gave our dog 24/7 care with lots of walks. She sent us pictures ever day also which was great. We will definitely use her again!
Stephanie was awesome! Finding a good place for our large breed, intact, 15 month old male was becoming incredibly frustrating, until I found Stephanie on DogVacay. She replied to my inquiries quickly and thoroughly. We met at an off leash where Zeus and her dog Keiko hit it of really quickly. She gathered all of the information that she might need about Zeus during his stay, sent pictures daily with him lounging and playing, and he even came home with a complete overview of the things that he did during his stay! We eagerly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a fun and loving home away from home for their pets!

Our host was very accommodating, milo was very happy when we got him (I don't think he wanted to come home), our host sent pics using Milo's fb, gave milo he's daily swim, hike, food, and having a home feel.
As dog parents we missed milo daily but with our dog host, she gave us the security that our baby dog is well taken care off.
We are going back with host and keiko the dog.

Stephanie did a great job with Elly!. From the moment we met her, we could tell she really cares about and loves dogs. She goes above and beyond just boarding a dog or giving her a place to sleep. Stephanie took Elly to the park every day, sent us daily picture updates and gave Elly a send-home package of cookies. I would definitely recommend her and will use her services again.

Sadie had such a great time at Stephanie's house! Keiko is so playful and friendly and got along great with our Sadie. Stephanie provided us with plenty of photo updates during Sadie's stay. Sadie was exhausted when she came home, but she can't wait to go back :)

Thank you Stephanie!

Stephanie was great!! We needed someone to look after our little puppy and it was the day before we were leaving out of town and Stephanie was able to watch Prince for us!! At first we were apprehensive, but after we talked to Stephanie and found out how knowledgeable she is and we could tell that she really would care for our pet as if he were her own. She even offered to come to our house to meet with us, which I thought was really great!

While Prince was at her home, we received regular daily updates as to how he was doing and the best part was we rec'd photos which showed that he was really having a great time!!

I would recommend Stephanie to anyone for them to leave their pet with her as she is very caring and she is able to put you right at ease!!

I will definitely be using Stephanie again, as it definitely was a mini vacation for our pet as he loved it there!

Stephanie is in every sense of the word amazing. She's enthusiastic, accommodating, has a passion and love for animals and it shows. She made sure Bella felt comfortable by understanding and carrying out Bella's daily routines and sleep preferences. For instance, Bella has never slept alone and loves to cuddle up. Stephanie allowed Bella to find a spot on her bed and allowed Bella to cuddle up right next to her despite Bella's snoring tunes. She would take Bella on private walks, give massages, group walks to the dog park, and the list goes on!

Stephanie also goes out of her way to take and send multiple photos a day of Bella as well as write down the highlights of each day.

Usually when I pick up Bella she would cry, whine, and give me hell for 15-20 minutes. When I arrived to pick her up at Steph, she whined for at most 2 minutes, jumped into the car and slept soundly. No signs of distress at all! I would definitely go back to Steph in an instant! Thank you so much!!!
