About Ida

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I adore dogs. We have no kids and I work from home. My husband is a doctor and is out a lot why I love the company of a furry friend. We have a a dog park within the beautiful apartment complex where we live where lots of other dogs are having their fun during the day. Further we live next to a big park. I would love to take your dogs for walks, play and fun. Let me know what your dog likes to do and I will make sure it happens. Would love to get to meet you and your best friend! Hope to see you soon.

I left my dog with Ida for four nights, and it was a great experience. She communicated frequently and I received a lot of photo updates, which make my day when travelling. When my dog had a digestive issue, she reached out to let me know the details and confirm whether or not he needed to see a vet (he did not, and Ida used fantastic judgement and did not overreact, but I really appreciated her cautious follow-up). Ida was also very flexible with pickup and dropoff, which is always helpful with crazy travel schedules. My dog seemed to really enjoy his vacay, and I would definitely have him stay with Ida again.

Ida was great with our little dog, and sent us multiple pictures daily along with other texts to constantly keep us updated on how our pup was doing. She was very accommodating and made sure our dog was as comfy as possible while we were away, and we're definitely looking forward to not having to worry about who to leave our dog with next time we go out of town :)

Our experience with Ida was great. Dante loved her and got comfortable with her immediately which is not always the case. She is home most of the time and Dante was used to that, so it was perfect. She sent pictures and updates and was very accommodating with our schedule on our departure date which was very last minute. We plan to have Dante stay with Ida the next time we go out of town.

I am so sorry to leave a review so late but we have just returned home. Ida & her husband were brilliant! They were so loving and attentive to our babies! I would not hesitate to take them back there.
My pup Jax had a wonderful time with Ida. Jax seemed comfortable during this stay and Ida did a nice job keeping me updated with a photo or two each day. The other great part is that Jax was left alone for only a few hours during his 4 day visit. I was pleased with this boarding experience and would recommend Ida to others. Thank you!

I am very disappointed in the experience I had with Ida. I was forced to cut the stay short due to their inability to properly care for my dogs. She and her husband clearly did not follow the very specific directions I had provided to them prior to the stay, causing many issues to arise. One of my dogs has separation anxiety, which I clearly explained to the hosts 2 months prior to the stay, when we dropped them off, and in the directions, and they assured me that they had experience with the types of behaviors I explained my dog may exhibit during the stay. However, the hosts were unable to handle my dog correctly, causing him to develop more anxiety and fear, as well as unease for me as I was 900 miles away and unable to remove him from the situation myself. Ida also failed to mention that one of the dog leashes and harness were somehow destroyed during their brief, 24-hour stay. When my friend removed the dogs from their home, the hosts sent my 2 dogs home with only one leash, and let my other dog to out of their home without a leash on. I am a responsible dog owner, and my 2 year old dog has been trained in multiple advanced obedience courses for the past 2 years and is a certified therapy dog. However, Ida insisted that my dogs were untrained, were "not normal", should be placed in a kennel, and then continued to tell me, in detail, how I should train my own dog. I do not recommend Ida as a host, especially if you have a dog with special needs, or a young puppy.

Ida treated Mason as if he were her own: lots of love and many walks.
Ida was great! She kept in touch the entire visit and sent me pics :) Barley immediately felt comfortable around her and I could tell she really enjoyed having him there. He didn't have to be crated, was allowed anywhere in the apartment, and seemed to be sad to go! Have already booked a second vacay :)

Ida was great with my dog! I really like the fact that she takes him on numerous walks and works from home for the most part, so that my dog has constant companionship. She was also very accommodating with my returning flight and was flexible when the airlines caused delays. Thanks again Ida!

Very nice and attentive to our dogs they kept in contact and sent us multiple pictures oover they stay it made being away from them a lot easier. Would definitely recommend Ida!
My dog, Koda and I, met Ida and her hubby for a meet and greet before booking Koda's vacation with them. From the moment Koda walked through their door, he was totally at ease and comfortable. I met with a couple other sitters, but Koda indicated it was Ida he wanted to stay with. He didn't have much interest in the others, but was affectionate right away with Ida. I'm very happy that Koda was able to stay with Ida while I was away. She and her hubby are total dog lovers, and I know Koda was well cared for, spoiled, and loved during his stay with them. When I came to pick Koda up, he was happy to see me, but didn't really want to seem to leave! We will definitely have Ida care for Koda in the future!

I felt comfortable leaving Margo with Ida right away. She was very sweet with her, and I loved getting the updates and photos throughout the day.
Ida was sooo great with Little Bit!

She sent us several pictures, which I really appreciated. And, our four-legged baby was so happy there, we thought she might not want to come home! ;-)

I would use her Ida again for our next trip, but she's already booked. So if you want the best for your baby or babies, get on her calendar as soon as you can!

Ida was an awesome doggie host for Ellie. Ellie had a great time and we would love to use Ida again next time we go out of town. Thanks again!
Ida is an excellent host, very friendly and attentive. She took good care of my big baby Faina while we were away.
Ida was an awesome host! She was very flexible and easy to coordinate with, and kept me informed the entire time I was on my trip. Jack and Jill had a great time on their vacation, and I'll definitely look to Ida again next time I need someone to watch my pups!

Ida is a great host! Panda loved staying with her. Would definitely consider having Ida host Panda again.
Ida was great. Very easy to work with and very responsive with all of my questions. She took good care of my 10 week old puppy, despite him being "high energy". He came home happy after his first doggy vacay!
Ida was a very gracious host. She took loving care of our dear Mr. Coco and sent us pictures of him while we were away. Mr. Coco was not on his best behavior at certain times :-(, but she was a very good sport about it. Highly recommended!
Ida did a great job with my Bentley! She communicated with and sent me pictures daily. She also accommodated my pick-up and drop-off times. We will definitely use her again to care for our fur baby.
Ida was great. I needed her early in the morning and she was so willing. She sent me pictures of Uni throughout the day.
Ida was a fantastic host! She was very communicative during my pet's stay and worked around my schedule for a convenient drop-off and pick-up. Rhett & Leo came home happy and well cared for. I would definitely book with her again. Thanks Ida!
