Our Story.....my son Jonathan is the highlight for those who use our services. The idea originated with his love for animals and a lot of begging us to be fosters for animals.

Bernadette has always had pets as long as I've known her! She is a lover of all animals and such a kind, caring lady! I've asked her to watch my pets on numerous occasions when I'm going on vacation or out of town and she always does an amazing job my dogs are so happy and not sad at all like after some kenel stay! I would highly reccomend Bernadette to anyone looking for a petsitter!

My first time leaving my puppies. The little one is very attached to me, I was worried he would think i left him,but when i got back he was so happy playing with Bernadette's wonderful friendly pack of pups.They felt at home. I felt great. The sitter is the friendliest lady along with her family who are are sweet and awesome. Everything worked out very well. I brought a dog gate and some food toys/ they ate alot which must mean they were comfortable there. I was very comfortable and felt welcome there. The yard is nice and the house has seperate rooms to put the dogs if thats what you desire. or a fireplace to chill by. Bernadette is easy going and wants to help and please. She was warm with my dogs, treats them like her own. Im not sure waht else to say, I will def request her for my puppies play days or for a vacay
Bernadette was an absolutely perfect sitter for our pup Romo. She and her family and dogs welcomed him right away as one of the pack. She gave him a fun and personalised stay, letting him on the furniture as he's used to and even giving him one of her dogs' bones as a gift. Bernadette was also kind enough to send many picture and text updates through the stay. Would recommend her to anyone!! Thanks again
Bernadette and Jonathan really love dogs, you can tell immediately!
I was very impressed with the way she received us and with her knowledge about dogs.
Was our first time using Dogvacay and we were a little bit nervous however entering Bernadette's home we felt better and after 15 minutes we were completely comfortable!
Our dog came home and basically didn't need any adaptation time which she usually needs when returning from the kennel; this time she just eased in right away and behaved normally which is a good sign!
We will most likely go back!
