About Monica

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would like to help people with their dog boarding needs in our Las Colinas home, which is very close to the DART rail and within driving distance of DFW airport. We have 35 years experience with dogs and 1 elderly Rat Terrier.

We have a variety of dog toys and puzzles to keep your pup amused as well as large trees in the backyard filled with squirrels. Our dogs are part of our family, and as such are allowed on all our furniture as yours will be too.

We have a great back yard, as well as a private park in our neighborhood, and Jefferson public park one block away. You will receive many photo and video updates during their stay.

We are retired and someone is home 24/7. Last minute bookings are not a problem. Just send us a message!

Your loved one will always have company, and will be happy, safe and loved while you are away.

I was delighted with Monica's service. She took great care of my pup and sent several pictures through out each day. She's ready good at taking pictures too!
When we came to pick him up he was all packed up and ready to go. He was happy to see me but still ran back to give Monica a good bye lick.
We will definitely use her service again.
Monica was great with my dog. She texted me with in a hour of leaving with a picture showing he was making himself at home. I received several pictures and updates each day. I highly her service.
Monica is the best host I've ever had in DogVacay.
She was amazing with Bernie. I received a ton of pictures every day and I even got recommendations of things Bernie liked while he was at Monica's.
I will definitely take Bernie here again on my next vacation.
Alfie, my 11 month teddy bear was well taken care of at Monica's. She sent me texts and photos of her walks with Alfie everyday. She is caring and will look after your fur baby as her own. Her house is lovely, bright and spacious for doggies to play. Her garden is fenced and spacious. don't hesitate to book with Monica, she is exactly what you need when you are worried about being away from your pooch. Thank you for loving my Alfie!
Monica is wonderful. My Miss Bella loves it there.
Monica is great! She truly is a dog lover that genuinely cares. Unlike other places, my mind is at ease when I have her watch my dog because i know he is well taken care of. She does a great job of sending regular updates with pictures and videos of what they do during the day. She keeps him occupied with walks and tons of play. I highly recommend her!
What else can I say that I haven't said before?? She is simply the best!
When you drop your dog off with Monica, you will feel comfortable knowing that your dog will be well taken care of, have a ton of fun, and is relaxed and happy. Monica sends numerous updates on your dog throughout the day and my dog is having so much fun I feel like my dog is on vacation herself! This is so much better than leaving your dog at a pet hotel! Monica is so sweet and I even received a nice card and a treat for my dog at the end of the stay! She really goes above and beyond and you won't be disappointed. :)
She is amazing, everything the others have said bout her is so true. Can't wait for my shy dog to go and play with her dogs again! Thank you so much, Monica. You took all of the stress of leaving without her from us.
There never been a time in my adult life that I have not been responsible for the physical, mental and heart of a four legged family member. Now its our tender hearted, energetic 3 year old rat terrier. Finding Monica has improved the quality of the time we can get away because we know our girl is very well taken care of. We just have to look at the daily pictures to know this. And when we pick Gillie up, even after 8 days, there's no 'woe-is-me' look or trudge to her walk. She's a very happy girl. We also have no reservations about having left her in the care of others which makes for an even better vacation for us. Gillie is currently booked for another stay.
Monica was great! She took our babies in and treated them like her own. I loved that she gave us frequent updates and pictures to put our minds at ease. It's hard to find people we trust with our precious pups, but we wholeheartedly trust Monica to take the best care of our babies. Thanks, Monica!!
I cannot say enough good things about Monica C. and her pet sitting services.

I have a small male Jack Russell Terrier who had a blast at Monica's house and got along well with all the dogs.

Everyday we were gone she would send us notes about their walks, how he was getting along with the other dogs there, and the most adorable photos and videos.

She was fantastic about communicating with us via text messages and I so enjoyed receiving her clever comments and photos several times a day.

In closing, I 100% recommend Monica's pet sitting.
I was nervous leaving my dog with someone new but Monica quickly made me comfortable leaving her there. I received photos throughout her stay. My dog was well taken care of. Thank you Monica.
I am so happy I found Monica. I recently moved to Texas and my number one worry was finding someone to take care of my pups while on vacation. My fur babies are used to being in a home environment and used to be taken care by my mom so my expectations were very high. I was very anxious about leaving them with a complete stranger but Monica was great about keeping me informed of their day and sent lots of pictures. My dogs really liked her husband as well. When I picked them up they were very calm and did not seem to anxious. We will definitely be visiting Monica again. Thanks for caring for my babies as if they were your!
Thank you for being so accommodating and gracious from the beginning until we collected our relaxed and happy girl. The pictures you sent were great. There was no doubt Gillie was very well care for and she definitely loved your backyard.
Great Communication, Great Updates. Would definitely use her again. Thank You so Much for watching our boy.
Wow! Monica took such good care of our Sparky. Pictures everyday with mood and health updates. Her pet family welcomes guests generously and made Sparky feel like a formerly lost member of the pack who had returned. Great pet kids. Great pet environment. I am thoroughly impressed..
Monica handled my elder lap dog very well. The daily updates made me feel more comfortable being away from my fur baby.
Such an amazing sitter. Monica let me set up very last minute reservations. We came over for a meet and greet and my pup got along great with her two older dogs. She even sent me daily updates and pictures. Will most definitely want to book again.
Monica was great! My dog Bo is not the best with other dogs, but she still accepted Bo last minute and was patient, giving him time to get acclimated with her two senior dogs. Bo had a great time with Monica and was able to run around in her back yard in addition to walks, getting plenty of exercise and attention. I would highly recommend Monica for overnight stays or day visits. She clearly has a lot of experience working with dogs and is very patient and caring.
Monica was great! We received photo and text updates daily while we were away and it was reassuring knowing that Izzy was having a great time at Monica's. She has two sweet dogs and a big backyard so your dog would have plenty space to play. She was also very accommodating when our flight was delayed and had to ask for another evening. Would definitely come back next time!
Monica is wonderful!! Our little Lenny can be a handful and she was so calm and patient with him. She has a lovely backyard that any pup would love. She sent me updates throughout the vacy.
My dog had a great time at Monica's. I appreciate the pictures and messages she sent me during his stay. I would definitely recommend Monica to others.
We are so happy to have found Monica!! Our older dog is so comfortable staying with Monica and her two dogs. Her home is calm and welcoming with nice back yard space. She is so caring and careful-- we have complete faith that our dog will be very well taken care of!
