About Monique

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
First things first....I LOVE animals (especially dogs)!

I'm in my 30's and I'm a very responsible dog sitter. I've had TONS of experience with dogs, both from dog sitting and I also volunteer for a local dog rescue so I've dealt with tons of different breeds, ages, personalities, etc.

When boarding in my home, your dog is treated like one of the family. He or she will be loved and well cared for. I try to keep their routine as similar as possible to what you are doing currently.

My home is a rambler in Riverton, Utah (on the border between Riverton and Herriman). I have a large, fenced back yard with plenty of room to play. I also have a dog door that leads out to my fenced backyard. I've never had a problem with a dog getting out.

I live in a great, safe neighborhood and I love to take dogs for walks (I don't charge extra for the walks). They are always the "celebrities" in our neighborhood especially with the kids.

Currently, I have 2 dogs. I have a Lab Mix named Tundra and he's approximately 2-3 years old. He's a rescue and that's why I don't know for sure. He's a total goof ball, but such a lover! He loves to play, but also loves to snuggle too.

My other dog is Cocoa. She's a Pit/Lab Mix and around 4 years old. She's a total love bug and loves to talk to humans. She's also very playful and loves to snuggle too. :) They are both my babies!!

If you have any further questions, please message me and thanks for looking!

Please check out my great reviews!

Our experience with Monique was excellent! We were out of town for almost a week and she took great care of our four furbabies in our own home. She came over for a meet-and-greet before our trip (all four dogs took to her immediately) and she sent photo updates a couple times a day while we were away. We'll most definitely be asking her for more pup-sitting help in the future. Thank you, Monique!! (:

Monique was really easy to work with. She came to our house to meet our dogs (who took to her immediately). She sent us a reservation booking so it was easy to book with her...all we had to do is click Accept and pay. She stayed at our house with our dogs while we were away on vacation. While we were away, we got the news from our vet that our poor Luna was sick. Monique went out of her way to keep us posted on Luna's activities, she went to the vet to pick up a prescription, and even made Luna special food (chicken & rice) because she wasn't eating. I can't even tell you how much we appreciated Monique caring for our dogs. She even sent me a text this week asking how Luna was feeling (1 week after we got back from our vacation!) Exceptional! She really cares for the animals and it shows.

We love Monique!!!! Sammy is always well taken care of when we leave him with her! We prefer to leave him with her every time we go out of town because of the excellent care he receives. You can tell that she loves dogs and they love her as well!!!

Monique was fantastic! Easy to communicate with to set things up. She sent pictures of Stormie while we were gone! Such a better option than boarding her at a kennel. Thank you Monique!
Monique was outstanding as usual! I am one of those overprotective dog moms that don't like to leave my "kids" with just anyone. I am so grateful that I found Monique back in July, and I have had her watch my girls 3 times now, each time being longer than the last. Not a day went by that I didn't get pictures and an update on how they were doing. She really is amazing! I highly recommend her. She truly cares about your dogs and you can tell she is a dog lover. My girls absolutely love her! She even goes above and beyond what is required of her. The second time she watched my girls, they had diarrhea so she made them chicken and rice since I was out of state, and my roommate wouldn't be home for many hours. She also is extremely flexible, and often available at the last minute. If you need a sitter, pick her! I promise she is wonderful!

Monique was absolutely amazing! This was our first time using Dogvacay.com, and it was a great experience. First off, she was super flexible, returned my message within the hour, and was able to watch my two 7 month old pups on short notice. We had her come to our home so that the girls would feel more comfortable. She came to meet the girls on the same day that I contacted her, and they immediately wanted to play and cuddle with her. She even updated me consistently throughout the day that I was gone, which is very important to me as I am pretty protective of my fur kids. I would definitely recommend her for anyone needing a sitter, and I will use her again in the future.

Monique is the best! She always goes above and beyond and exceeds our expectations!
We love Monique! She's the best!
We had a great experience with Monique! We have two high maintenance chihuahuas and she was very patient and kind with them. We had a bad kennel experience and were looking for an alternative and we are so glad we found her! She came to our house to meet with us before we agreed to have her watch our dogs and we talked with her and she met our dogs. She then came to our house to care for the dogs and let them in and out of their pens that they stay in while we are gone. She even stayed for a while each time she came and played with them and sent us pictures. It was a great experience and we plan to use her in the future!

I know my dog is being well cared for by Monique. She regularly sent me updates about my dog, which I very much appreciated. Monique was also extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times, which made planning my trip easier. I know my dog wouldn't do well in a kennel situation, so having Dog Vacay as an alternative gives me peace of mind when I have to be away from my pooch. Monique is definitely the best!
Read More...
Monique is amazing! I never worry about my dogs when she's taking care of them. One of them is getting older and having some health challenges and I feel completely comfortable leaving her with Monique!
We can't say enough good about Monique and Branden! Our little doggie is so loved at their house and he misses his "friends" when he comes home. Thanks again, Monique!!
As always, Monique was wonderful. She takes such good care of my dogs so that I can get away and not worry!
Our stay with Monique was fabulous, as usual! He's worn out today from having so much fun with his "puppy pals" and I'm thrilled that he had such a good time!!
Treats her guests like her own dogs! Very loving to the dogs!
Great host! Recommend to my friends!
Awesome!
This is a great place to board your dogs! They have a great time, are well cared for and don't want to come home. Thanks so much!
Monique and her husband went above and beyond with my pups this weekend. She'd just had surgery and still took in my kids and gave them the love and attention that she always does. They had a great time and I enjoy my time away so much more knowing they're being taken care of. Thank you so much!

Once again, we went away with peace of mind that our dog was in the best hands with Monique and Branden! We know that they love our dog like we do and he's so well taken care of! He's super tired when he gets home, which means he's had tons of fun with his "friends" while we were away. We can't thank Monique and Branden enough!!

Thanks again Monique :)
Absolutely out go-to dog sitter. Love Monique & Bandon. Seeing them again in a few days.
Still the best! We'll keep coming as long as she will have us :) Bella got to play with her doggy friends while I got to take care of business in the City without worrying that she was sad or lonely. Thank you Monique.
I am so glad I found Monique on Dog Vacay! She is just a wonderful care giver and loves our dogs and all dogs, it seems! Our Shugah loves going there to see her friends! The thing I really appreciate is that Monique is laid back with the dogs and just enjoys them, and, of course, I love the pictures! Thanks, Monique!!

Monique is fast becoming a part of our family. Bella gets very excited when we drive up & just makes herself at home when we go into Monique's house. This is exactly what we were looking for when we found her. Planning to see her again in 2 weeks.
Monique is awesome and Buster loved her!! I would highly recommend using Monique over any kennel or boarder.
When my wife and I's planned dogsitter flaked out a day before our flight out of town, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find a place to leave our little one on such short notice. Fortunately, I found Monique's listing here! She responded to my message almost immediately--even before I had a chance to message any other sitters on the site--and was willing to take our dog with less than 24 hours' notice.

Lucy had a great stay; Monique was quick and responsive whenever I needed to contact her, and she sent along pictures of her looking happy and relaxed every day. I'll definitely be booking Monique in the future when we go out of town again.

I was really worried about leaving our "kids" with someone we did not know but after seeing the pictures she text me and how in touch she kept, I felt great! Our dogs really felt comfortable with her and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Monique rocks! Bella loves staying with her. She gets to play all day ... We will be staying there again soon :)
Just picked up my pup after his first stay with Monique. It could not have gone better. He is Happy and exhausted from all the play. He loves his MamaMonique. My search is over. I have found the angel to watch over Morgan while I'm away.
Monique was fabulous as always!! Frequent pictures updates as well as being able to accommodate an extra day last minute!
This is the second time we've used Monique and we just love her. I always know my dogs are in good hands while we're gone. I love the photo updates she sends. I won't hesitate to call her again or refer her to others.
My dogs are exhausted from all the fun they had a Monique's house!! :) I had to drop my dogs off very early in the morning and Monique was so flexible and sweet to let me do that.
Monique is totally amazing!! Lady and Speedy LOVE her!! What a wonderful service!
Monique is simply amazing! She takes great care of our dogs while we were on our business trip. We didn't worry one minute because our dogs love to be at her house and we know they are in capable hands. It is reassuring to know we have someone we can depend on while we are gone and we don't have to board our little dogs in a kennel. Thanks Monique!!

Another great vacay at Monique's house! They both left exhausted from all the fun!! :)
Monique is a saint and so is her husband. My boxers had so much fun. They came home happy and tired. Monique sent me pictures everyday and I could tell they were loving it. Tucker is really a handful and he had so much fun with all the dogs, big and little. They were comfortable from the start and they got a lot of love and attention. I have already booked them another stay.

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience with Monique. I would recommend her highly to anyone and everyone! :) She was so good to our dog....we felt completely confident leaving our Minnie in her competent hands. After our week away, it was clear that Minnie was well-cared for, felt loved and happy. We won't hesitate to use Monique again. So glad we found her!

This was actually a last-minute schedule change of a reservation we made with Monique earlier. She was terrific at accommodating us. Can't sing the praises enough for her and Brandon. Bella loves them (especially Brandon ;) and we love them. We will be booking with Monique as long as she will have us!

Monique and Branden were great host to my babies for 10 days. This was my first time leaving my babies with strangers but they were treated as if they were in their own home. Monique updated me with texts and pictures consistently. I would definitely use Monique again and recommend to anyone. Thank you.

When we found out we couldn't take Bella with us over the Christmas holidays we of course called Monique and she didn't hesitate to say yes. We dropped Bella off on our way to Wyoming, and when she got out of the car, she sniffed around a bit and HERE'S THE BEST REVIEW - RAN TO THE DOOR '& SCRATCHED TO BE LET IN!! 'Nuff said :)
Read More...
Monique & Brandon are AWESOME! We live in rural Southern Utah & sought out someone to keep our timid rescue girl, Bella, in the SLC valley while we were away on a cruise over the Thanksgiving day holiday. Since she was a rescue, we didn't want to put her back in a kennel, so we met with Monique and choose to leave her there. When our schedules changed they were kind enough to let her come in a day early, even though they were experiencing an unexpected personal issue in their lives.
During our trip we received daily photos and updates from Monique. When we returned 10 days later to pick her up, Bella was happy, happy, happy to see us & we to see her. We won't hesitate to leave her with them again - & didn't (see our next review)! Thanks Monique & Brandon and Dog Vacay !!

So apologetic for my tardiness at writing a review for Monique. She was fabulous. Freydis was completely pampered while we were away and it gave me so much peace of mind. Leaving her is never easy, and this is the first time we'd ever gone out of town at Christmas. I received photos every day and i knew she was having a blast. Monique did everything she said she would and really went the extra mile. Freydis has a few medications/supplements and they were all given to her per our instruction. AND she got lots of cuddle time, which was important. Thank you, Monique, for easing a little stress at this stressful time of year.

Oh, my goodness!! Our dog started whining when we were a block away from Monique's home this time!! He knows that he's about to have a FUN weekend with his dog buddies at Monique's house and for that, I'm so very happy. He also comes home very, very tired so I know that he's had a fabulous time! Thanks, again, Monique and Branden!

There is not one single thing that could have gone better. I picked up my puppy after receiving daily txt messages with pictures of her playing with other dogs. Monique is the only one that will watch my puppy from now on. FANTASTIC!! She played so much she will sleep for days now!

Another great stay with Monique, Branden, Copper, Buster and Cocoa!! :) Thank you!!
Kona always has a good time staying with Monique. She is well taken care of and loves playing with the other dogs.
Monique is, by far, the absolute best person my dog has ever stayed with. She truly cares and is a huge dog lover, so my dog was smothered with love, affection, and attention every day. Monique texted me pics daily, which helped ease my worry of leaving my dog somewhere new. She went out of her way to ensure my dog's comfort, happiness, and safety, so that I could really relax on vacation, knowing Sasha was in good hands. Her husband is great too! They both are aware and observant of dog behaviors, which is a comfort. It was nice knowing there was someone there 24 hrs/day, and a vet nearby "just in case". I will never bring my dog to anyone else when I travel. I can't thank you enough, Monique and Branden! You guys totally ROCK! :-)
P.S. Sasha says "woof" (i.e. hello) to you both, Copper, and Buster.

This was our first "overnight" with Monique & Branden & their "pack" and I am very happy to report that things went well. They are supreme dog lovers and Bella (our girl) knew that from the start. Monique sent pics and periodic postings on how things were going. Bella is a rescue dog who has some separation anxiety issues so we didn't want to leave her at a kennel. Branden works from home & Monique spends a lot of her time at home as well so there was pretty much 24/7 supervision not to mention their own dogs & other Vacay dogs with whom Bella enjoyed playing which gave her little time to mourn the loss of her peeps. When I arrived to pick her up, she was SO excited I could hardly get the leash on her and though Branden reported that he thought she was a little depressed the night before, we feel comfortable enough with her care that we plan to book with Monique & Branden for our upcoming week-long cruise. We highly recommend Dog Vacay, Monique & Branden.

Our dog was well-loved while we were gone! Monique and Branden treated our "Roo" as their own, which we were very thankful for! We were so happy to also receive the photos and cute messages! We would definitely recommend Monique and Branden to others for their pet care needs.

Look no further! Monique and Brandon are absolutely amazing! They are wonderful caretakers and their love for dogs is real. They made ZoZo feel right at home and set us at ease by sending the cutest pics each day and videos of her playing with the other dogs. ZoZo is an "only" dog in our family and I wondered how she would get along with other dogs, but she did wonderful and adjusted great to it. She LOVED vacationing at their lovely home and had the time of her life playing with friends everyday. We will definitely use them again! :)

Our experience with Monique was phenomenal! Our lab Annabelle came home happy and content. It was obvious she was well taken care of and loved. It was the best experience we have had leaving her overnight and will continue to use this service and would HIGHLY recommend!!!!

This was our second time I left our little Lady with Monique. She is amazing!!
Our dog receives an overabundance of affection and attention. The pics are adorable. Monique should be a professional photographer. I am not exagerating when I say she goes above and beyond to care for our dog. It is like our dog is one of hers for the duration of the visit. I wouldn't trust anyone else as much as I trust Monique.

Once again, my dogs had a great stay with Monique and her husband. They went above and beyond since one of my dogs was sick while he was there. She cooked him chicken and rice to settle his stomach and made sure he got lots of love. He was already feeling better by the time I got back from my trip.

I feel lucky to have found such an incredible place for my dogs to stay any time I'm out of town. Thank you for taking such great care of my pups!!!

Monique was amazing! She came to our home to watch our 2 dogs. She sent a lot of photos and updates—it was so fun to get them—and it made it easy to get away and not worry! She was so flexible with our schedule and even went back one extra time because we were delayed getting home. The dogs loved her. In fact, after we got home one of them kept going to the front door and I think she was looking for Monique to come back!
I will definitely recommend Monique to my friends and will call her again!
Read More...
Thanks for another great Vacay!! Both of my dogs have barely moved all day because they're exhausted from all of the playing and fun they had. I always know they're in good hands with you!! Thank you!!!
Monique was incredible, she went above and beyond to make my dogs feel comfortable and me as well. I always worry about leaving my dogs and if they are miserable, I can guarantee they enjoyed themselves while I was gone. I will most certainly use Monique again!
Read More...
Another awesome experience with Monique! She took my pups with about an hour notice! She also makes my dogs feel special and is happy to have them. She is the best!
Monique was so kind and flexible with our drop off and pick up times and dates. I loved getting photos and updates on how our Grace was doing. This was our first time leaving Grace and Monique and her husband made Grace feel loved and at home, so it made it easier to leave her. We will definitely send Grace to Monique the next time we go out of town. I have even told family members to use her the next time they go out of town.

Another great stay at Monique's house! She's so thoughtful and updated me many times with photos during my trip. I always know they're in good hands with Monique and her husband!
Monique was great. She did a wonderful job with my puppy. It was really good to get the pictures, and I felt like I didn't have anything to worry about. I will be asking her to sit for my pup again soon.
Monique and her husband were great with our dogs. We received lots of pictures while we were gone and we could tell they were given lots of attention and well taken care of. This was a great experience for us as we have been hesitant in the past to leave our dogs with anyone but family. Now we are free to leave more often, knowing that Monique will take good care of them.

It was a joy to have our dog stay with Monique! She sent many cute pictures for updates, and I really appreciated the communication via text. We could tell that she really cares for dogs! We will definitely be sending our dog on another vacation with Monique!

Monique's flexibility was so helpful to us on this trip! Thank goodness she was so easy going! We are always nervous about leaving our dog behind, but he seemed comfortable and happy in the pictures Monique would periodically send us. We all really appreciated the pictures--they gave us peace of mind and we were able to enjoy our vacation without the constant worrying about the dog!

Monique is awesome! I was really nervous leaving Chuck Norris for an extended period of time, but after meeting her, I knew he would be in a friendly and loving home. Monique sent regular updates letting me know my doggie was going well. The day we were returning home ended up being later than planned. Monique was very accommodating and understanding. I appreciated that very much. I would recommend Monique, and Dogvacay to anyone needing a place for their dog to stay!

Monique and her hubby were Awesome!!!! My dogs were loved and pampered the entire time we were gone. This is the first time we have left our dogs and haven't had to worry about them. We loved the updates and pics Monique would send to the website and our phone. Monique and her hubby are so welcoming we felt as though we had known them forever!!! Thanks Monique for taking such good care of our babies, we will definitely leave them with you again soon!!!

This was our first experience with DogVacay.

We were so impressed with Monique after our meet and greet, as she answered all of our questions and concerns and we felt comfortable with leaving our little Mindy with her.

We could tell that Monique and her husband truly love dogs and are dedicated to their care and happiness.
Monique sent texts with pictures and updates of Mindy which put us at ease seeing that she was happy and being well taken care of.

We highly recommend Moniques excellent service and will definitely be scheduling with her again.

Monique had watched Corky once before, and we liked her so much that we decided to go back to her again. She and her husband did a great job watching Corky. He has some bad allergies and she was very willing to help him with his allergies, and even gave him an oatmeal bath while he stayed with her to help him. She is great and we will definitely use her again!
Read More...
My pups had the best time with Monique! I took them over for a meet and greet the night before and she made sure each dog was comfortable with her. During their stay I received pictures every day and it made being away from them so much easier. My little one is very timid and while they were with Monique she made sure this little one felt secure. My hyper pup was completely worn out when she came home so I know she had a good time. I will definitely be using DogVacay again and especially Monique!
Read More...
Wow! We were missing our puppy for ten entire days!! The separation was made much easier with the photo's from Monique. She even followed up after we'd gotten her home! I wouldn't even hesitate to book with Monique again!
Another successful stay at Monique's house. I love getting the picture updates!! Monique made Ellie's birthday a special day complete with a pink princess party hat and pink lei! All of the dogs got to celebrate with special treats. I can't thank you enough, Monique!!

I was really nervous leaving my puppies (9 mon and 12 weeks) at first. But that only lasted about an hour after I dropped them off. Monique answered all of my nervousness questions and didnt seem bothered when I probably spent a little too much time meeting her for the first time :) Monique assured us they were happy and sent many pictures to prove it! She treated them like one of her own and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. I highly recommend her and will continue coming back! Thank you!!!

Best host ever!
We were very pleased when Monique and her husband took care of our dog in the past. So we were glad when they were available this time when we needed to leave town.

They are dog people and are clearly concerned about how to help our dog feel comfortable away from home.
Read More...
Monique is so great with my dogs! They barely notice when I leave and when I come back to get them they say hi and then lay back down to relax. That lets me know they're totally comfortable there! One of my dogs is terrified of loud noises and Monique's husband spent time on the floor with her to calm her down. This couple is committed to making their furry guests feel welcome!!! They are wonderful!

We had never dared leave our pets with anyone, even family. Instead, we took our dogs with us on long, hot trips. One was constantly carsick when traveling, and both required a lot of constant attention that significantly diminished our own experiences. This summer, we had a large family reunion at Bear Lake and wanted a week without worries. Kennels made us uncomfortable, because we rescued one of our dogs from a kennel situation. Looking around on the Internet, we decided to try DogVacay. We were impressed with Monique’s credentials and reviews, and we were not disappointed. While we sent out several queries, it was days before we heard back from anyone except Monique. She responded more quickly than possibly expected, was always communicating, and always made us feel important. Her customer service is impeccable. We have never met someone more passionate about animals than Monique. The dogs were so happy that we feared they wouldn’t want to come back home. Daily updates and photos were sent, and the kids had no doubt that their pets were being well loved. Monique approaches her dog sitting as a profession and as a professional, and yet she makes you feel like family. If you live in northern Utah, this is the person you want watching over your dogs while you are away. We will utilize her expertise again through DogVacay. What a great program! Thank you, Monique!!!

Monique and her husband are awesome! I never have to worry about my dogs when I am out of town. I know they are getting lots of attention and having fun. She sends daily emails and pictures so I know my dogs are happy and well taken care of. I highly recommend Monique and will always have my dogs stay with her!

Ras gets along great with Monique's family! She sends constant updates so you never have to worry about how your pup is doing.
Monique was absolutely wonderful. Our dog Vinci hadn't stayed without us at someone else's house overnight. Monique made Vinci feel at home and we loved the pics. Thanks Monique!
Monique was the best! I was worried about leaving Oakley--but once I met Monique all worries were set aside. I really loved all the pictures and updates on how my pup was doing!
Monique truly loves dogs and you can tell. My 2 have never stayed with anyone other than family and after meeting her and dropping them off for their first night, I felt completely confident leaving them with her! I have an older dog who can be restless at night and Monique even got out the air mattress and slept on the floor with them. That's dedication!! The most stressful part of going out of town is making arrangements for my dogs and I think my life just got a lot easier by meeting Monique!! Thank you for spoiling them for me when I have to be gone!!!

Monique was great with our dog Domino!, We could tell that Domino really enjoyed the time with her!, we will definitely be using Monique next time we go out of town.
Corky loved staying with Monique! She did a great job watching him and made me feel so comfortable about leaving him while I went on vacation. She texted me daily with pictures of Corky, telling me how he was doing and she also did her very best to make Corky feel right at home. I'm definitely going to use Monique again and highly recommend her to others!

Best host ever! I would recommend her to anyone!
Monique you're the best friend our lady could ever have! Thanks for loving animals and being available for us!
Monique is amazing with our little Lady! The photos were adorable! We appreciated knowing our dog was getting great care in her home. I think Lady got spoiled with all the attendtion and affection! It truly was a vacation for our dog which made our vacation perfect! We did not worry one minute about her. Thanks so much!

Monique was so great! She was so easy to work with even with last minute changes. Very trustworthy and laid-back. Our dog had a great time playing with her dogs and she sent us lots of pictures of the fun. It was our first time leaving our puppy so we looked around at multiple dog boarding places and didn't like them. Then we found Monique and once we met with her we really felt at ease being away from our baby!

We had a last minute need for a place for our dog and Monique went out of her way to accommodate our schedule. We really appreciate the care our dog gets and love that he has room to roam around a house and yard.
Monique took amazingly great care of our Andy & Ava. With special care to Ava who had just had surgery a couple days before. I can't understate what a relief it was to know that my babies were not only being well cared for, but that they were also having a great time on their dogvacay. Monique sent me loads of pictures so I knew how they were doing and I could see from those pictures that they felt completely at home.

Monique is awesome!! She pampers your pet like one of her own and sends tons of great updates so you know your pet is having a great time!
Monique was such a great doggy-sitter! My pups had a great stay. Monique sent us daily photos of our puppies and even sent me an email (since we were overseas and couldn't use our telephones) updating me on their stay.

Monique was awesome!!! She texted us numerous pictures of our pup while we were away. She took great care of our dog and we felt safe letting her into our home.
Monique always does such a great job with our dogs. This time she even took an extra dog we were watching and took great care of him. And as an added bonus, they are always tired when they get home from their vacation too! We no longer feel bad about leaving our dogs behind when we go out of town!

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Monique is absolutely the best! She went out of her way to get to know our three dogs before we left then on the day she arrived to take care of them, she came with their favorite treats. She followed their feeding schedule exactly. She arrived early and stayed with them into the night then was back early the next morning to let them out. We received text messages with pictures attached though out her stay with them - this was something we really appreciated. She left our home exactly as she found it. The Dogs were happy and well taken care of. We will use her always when we travel.

Monique and her husband are the best! I had a dog sitter fall through last minute and Monique was great about working with me to make last minute arrangements! She will literally treat your dog like one of her own! While your dog is with Monique, he's part of thier family. I will definitely use Monique whenever I need to leave my dog!

Monique was friendly and attentive. She took great care of our dog and gave us frequent updates. Dropping off and picking up our dog was easy and not a hassle. We have no hesitations recommending her services.
Monique provided great care and service for our pups. She truly loves taking care of dogs as if they were her very own. My wife and I left our pups overnight with confidence. She provided us pictures of our pups throughout the evening showing the fun they were having at her home. I will definitely bring back our pups to Monique and recommend her service to others!

Monique was great! We felt totally comfortable leaving our little poodle with her and her husband. She texted us daily updates and made Lucy feel at home. We're so happy we found her.
I have used Monique before to watch my fur babies, and there's a reason I keep going back. Monique goes above and beyond and has a deep love and compassion for animals. you won't find a better puppy sitter anywhere. Her husband Branden, is equally compassionate for dogs. They will love your fur babies just as much as they love their own. :)

Monique does a fantastic job watching our dogs. We have left them with her several times now and they get quite excited to go and spend time there! While we might miss our dogs when we have to travel, we don't every worry about whether they are happy or being given good care and attention. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great place for their dogs while away from home.

I have never met a more loving and compassionate fur baby lover. Monique and her husband are absolutely amazing!! This is the first time ever that I have not felt worried about leaving my babies. She went above and beyond, and not only is she a true animal lover, but clearly a true friend to anyone she meets. We will ALWAYS use Monique for our furbaby vacations. :)

Monique is AMAZING! I love how much she loves my pooches
This was the first time we had to leave our 3 puppies and we couldn't have found a better person to take care of them! Monique is honestly amazing!!! I was so worried and I'm sure I was driving her crazy with all of my questions. She was so quick to answer my texts and sent photos every day. One of my dogs wouldn't come out from under the bed and her and I worked out a plan to get him to be more social. Monique went and bought him some toys and treats! All 3 of my babies were healthy and glowing when we returned. Monique even left us a very sweet wedding gift, (insists it was the dogs idea). We trust her completely and hope she is available next month when we will need a sitter for our honeymoon. Thank you, Monique, for really caring!

Monique was great! She was willing to arrange for my wife and I to drop off our little Tika at a time that was convenient for us and our vacation.

She kept us up to date with our puppy and provided a ton of cute photos.

It happened to rain while we were gone and Tika got a little muddy while playing outside. Monique gave her a bath and first class spa treatment.

Tika gets anxious every time we leave her with someone new and happened to make a mess in her kennel on the pillow. Monique, cleaned the kennel and washed the pillow to make sure Tika was comfortable and suffered as littler anxiety as possible.

When we returned home Tika was happy to see us and we could tell she had had fun at Monique's. This is our first time using DogVacay.com and we are more than impressed.

For a family that does week long vacations at least once a year we are thrilled to have found such a great sitter for such a great price and we plan on using her in the future.

I'd recommend Monique to anyone who asks.

Monique was great with our dogs! They warmed up to her almost immediately and were very well cared for. We even got some cute pictures of them playing while we were out of town. Our dogs can't wait to go back and stay with her again!
We were and still are very impressed and excited to find someone that loves our dog as much as we do, and now we know we can go on vacation without her once in awhile knowing that Sassy is having as good a time as we are with her friends. We will definitely use Monique again.

Monica was an excellent host. She is great if you have a dachschund or any dog really. She went above and beyond and I know our dog had a great time staying with her. She even offered to let us drop him off early so that we could pack! She was very attentive to our dog and sent us regular updates on how he was doing during our vacation. She has a nice fenced in back yard for the dogs to play. She was also very quick to respond to any requests or concerns. I highly recommend her and will definitely have her keep our dog again in the future.

My dogs ran right up to her the moment we got there - no anxiety or growing - I was impressed - they loved her immediately! Her house and yard are gorgeous and she is a complete delight. I received a ton of adorable pictures and I was able to completely relax on my vacation. Her dogs are so so so sweet and played great with mine. She is hands down the best doggy-sitter we have ever had.

Monique was a great host! She provided a great first experience using dogvacay. Teddy had so much fun playing with her doggies. I'm glad I found such a good home for Teddy to stay while I was away.
Kona enjoyed her stay with Monique. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that Kona was having a good time. She was well cared for. Monique was very punctual at returning our calls and emails. She also sent us fun photos of Kona while we were gone. Kona had fun playing with Monique's dogs also.
