Just to get off on the right paw, I need to let pet owners know, I have to insist on a Meet N' Greet before I will board your dog. So, please don't book a reservation unless your dog(s) has met my dog, Harper. You will find a place to request a Meet N' Greet on the DogVacay website right below where you would book a reservation. Through experience over the last few years, I have found that Meet N' Greets are essential to having a good experience and avoiding a bad one. I haven't had a bad experience because I do insist on a Meet N' Greet.
I started being a DogVacay host the summer of 2013 and have had the privilege of meeting great dogs and great people.
I am looking for pets who can come to my house and stay for the day or overnight. I prefer the owners deliver and pick up their precious pets. I also now offer Home Visit Services within a 5 mile radius of my home. I live near Comstock Park.
I have a beautiful Lemon Drop Beagle named Harper. She is a great dog! So, any pets who come to my house will need to be compatible with Harper. So far, she seems to get along good with most other dogs, but I have to be careful for everybody's sake.
The pets I have pictured here are my beloved Beagles, Dansen and Lil, who have both passed away. There are also pictures of pets I have taken care of over the years for friends and neighbors, i.e. Hansil, Schultz, Lucy, 'B', Buddy, Sally, Greta and Niina Kat. I also have a few pictures of some of my DogVacay guests, they have all been awesome dogs.
I will treat your pets as though they were my own. If you want to be able to relax while you are away, then pick someone who is responsible. I am that person.
I started being a DogVacay host because I missed my dogs and I also needed to supplement my income because I was working part-time. Now I have Harper, but love being a DogVacay host so much I have decided to continue. It is very rewarding and I have loved every single dog that has come to my home to stay.
Being a DogVacay host gives me a chance to take care of a sweet dog who is missing their family and is lonely. I love the company of animals and I will take great care of yours!
