About Stephanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I both love animals and I am CPR, First Aid, & Care certified through PetTech's PetSaver Program. We both grew up in a house with multiple pets and have experience with all ages, puppies through seniors. We are a young, energetic couple that does not currently have any children, aside from our one spoiled shih-tzu pup, Penny! ;) She loves play time, her monthly BarkBox, snuggling, and her weekly bath!

We live in a spacious single-family home located in a beautiful gated community. We have a large fully-fenced in back yard and neighborhood sidewalks for daily walks. While we do not offer 24 hour supervision, we both work less than 10 minutes away and come home frequently on our breaks throughout the day to check on the pups! Since we work so close we are very flexible with bookings and will gladly accept last minute bookings and/or changes to reservations.

We want to ensure that your fur-baby stays happy and healthy during their visit and will follow all meal schedules and rules that you have in place. We know how hard it is to be away from your pet, so we will send lots of text, pictures, and videos to put your mind at ease! We are happy to offer additional services such as pick up/drop offs, baths, etc. so please feel free to ask if you have any questions! :)

Our girls LOVE Stephanie, Mike and Penny. I love the pictures Stephanie sends each day. As my husband says, seeing the girls happy and loved makes our vacation that much more enjoyable.
Stephanie and her husband were awesome! I received a picture or a video clip everyday and when I came to pick up my pups they were happy and healthy! Stephanie even let our dogs sleep in her bed because that's what we allow in our home. I feel like she really got to know and love our dogs. I will use these guys every time!
Stephanie was kind enough to keep our 100 lb yellow lab several times over the summer. Brady always seemed to enjoy the stay and I was very grateful to receive the daily updates and pictures from Stephanie. We always hate to have to leave Brady behind, but knowing he's in good hands with Stephanie gives us peace of mind while we are away.
Stephanie was great to our dog! Plenty of updates during the stay and lots of playtime for him. I will definitely be bringing him back for future stays.
Stephanie...She is just awesome. I knew before i met you that i would like you. I don't know why.
Maybe it's because you got in touch with me in a few mins. Maybe because you seemed down to earth.
So the minute i saw you i just knew Toby would be a fit. Also he loves her dog Penny. She is so sweet and calm.
Can't wait to see you again Steph!!!! Muah
Stephanie was the absolute perfect host for my little schnauzer, Wembley. He is a little shy, and she completely made him feel at home. She sent me photos and videos of him playing with her little dog everyday while I was away! She even bathed him, cuddled him, and treated him as her own. I couldn't be happier with this experience!
Stephanie was quite helpful and my dogs seemed to have a good time. They came back home different--not as stressed out and anxious-- compared to when I pick them up at the Boarding place. I will use her again and recommend her to my friends.
This was our first time using DogVacay and we couldn't be more pleased. We would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone needing a dogsitter. She was extremely flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. She kept my wife and me updated multiple times a day with pictures and videos of the dogs playing with Penny.
I highly recommend Steohanie J. She sent us pictures everyday and took great care of our dog, and last minute too.
Stephanie was great! She was very accomdating with my drop-off and pick-up for Malcolm. She sent me daily updates letting me know my boy was getting on just fine. I will be using her again.
We’ve never left our fur babies with anyone other than our family, so to say that we were nervous/anxious/worried about leaving them with someone we’ve never met is an understatement. We are so grateful that we were able to find Stephanie and her husband, Mike, here on DogVacay. They were perfect. They are incredibly kind and sincere, and they immediately put our minds at ease. The drop-off was easy, we received multiple updates and photos, and our pups loved their ‘vacation’. The experience was so positive that our family may be relieved of their dog-sitting duties in the future. Don’t hesitate for a second to leave your beloved pups with Stephanie, Mike, and Penny.
Cookie and Ginger had a wonderful time with Stephanie, Mike and Penny. Stephanie send up a picture each day and I could tell that they felt right at home. We will definitely let our girls stay with them again.
We were very nervous about leaving our puppy for the first time, but Stephanie made it very comfortable for us. Chewie had a great time and we received lots of updates and pictures. This made our vacation more relaxing knowing that he was in good hands. Thanks to Stephanie and her husband!!
Stephanie was super sweet to send us pics of Oreo and Penny together. When we were away, it was so nice not to have to worry if Oreo was enjoying himself or if he was comfortable. Stephanie kept us updated throughout our trip. If we have to leave town again, we will definitly be calling her and her husband again. We feel blessed to have found this sweet couple!
I will NEVER leave my dog in a kennel again! Stephanie and her husband were AWESOME sitters and we will definitely reach out to them again the next time we go out of time! We received daily pics/videos from them which made our time apart not quite as bad.
We are so grateful to Stephanie, Mike, and Penny for taking such loving care of our furry family member! Having never boarded our sweet dog, we were anxious about leaving her- after a "meet and greet" with Stephanie and Penny, we knew this was the perfect solution. Not only were they incredibly accommodating to our travel plans, but they sent us daily pics and videos so that we could see how our sweet Izzie was settling in. We cannot say enough about what an amazing experience this was for our whole family- we are already planning our next vaca! Thank you Stephanie, Mike, and Penny??
Stephanie and Mike took great care of my 4 month old puppy! They had her for 11 days and sent updated pics and videos often, it made me feel so much more comfortable about leaving my "baby" there. Their house was so clean and they allowed my puppy on their couch, so she felt right at home! I will definitely be using this couple again :)
Stephanie did a great job with Hershey. I would definitely recommend.
Stephanie was great with our dogs. She sent picture updates and made us feel comfortable about leaving our dogs over the holiday weekend. We will definitely use her again!
My two Frenchies had a great time at Stephanie's. She took good care of them. I give her five stars.They played with her little dog and had a fun time.
We were so worried about leaving our baby for the first time. I cannot thank Stephanie and Mike enough. They went above and beyond for our sweet boy. Our 6 month old dog loved playing with Penny. Our worries were put at ease with daily updates, pictures, and videos of our fur baby! If we ever need a place for him again I would not hesitate to contact Stephanie.
Tasha love staying with Stephanie. The Jones' are great and we recommend them to everyone.
Stephanie and Michael were the perfect hosts while we were away at Thanksgiving. Their dog, Penny, was glad to see Jack return to play and romp again in their huge, fenced backyard. We got pictures and a video to share with family while down south and feel so good that he is having such a great time while we are away.
Stephanie is a very awesome and kind person. She has taken very good care of our dog and sent updates with pics to keep us abreast of him while there. She is very accommodating and we hope to use her again on our next trip. Thanks Stephanie!!! You are awesome!
Stephanie and her husband were incredible! We are very attached to our golden retriever puppy so it's hard to leave him when we go out of town, but Stephanie put our minds totally at ease. She sent pictures of him looking very happy and we know he was in great hands! I would 100% recommend :)
This is the second time I have had my Maltese stay with Stephanie. My Shiloh just loves going there and playing with her dog, Penny. Stephanie and I have the same views on dog care. I trust her completely and it really takes the worry out of leaving my baby. I will continue to use her in the future.
Stephanie was very friendly and professional. She got back to our emails right away. She took great care of our little Emma and made her feel right at home. We were able to have a great, relaxing vacation knowing our dog was in such good hands!
We left our dog, Jaeger with Stephanie and Mike for a week. After meeting them and their dog, we just knew Jaeger would be in good hands. Jaeger seemed to have a great time at their home. Stephanie updated his stay with us and we were very comfortable knowing he was fine. We will definitely use Stephanie and Mike again. They are keepers! Thanks so much.
The dogs were in great hands! We had a daily update with pictures! It was easy to relax on our trip knowing the dogs were doing so well. They are even spending another evening with Stephanie. Thanks again!!
The first word that comes to mind in working with Stephanie and her husband is OUTSTANDING. They are a wonderful and pet loving couple. I think Jack felt like part of their family. Jack is an older dog and we were nervous about leaving him for several days. He also needed to take a few doses of medicine. Stephanie and her husband completely alleviated any anxiety we had. I think Jack had a great time. We are so glad we found this site and Stephanie!
Hands down a FABULOUS experience for my furbabies! Stephanie and her husband were amazing. They sent me updates, and pictures. They are loving, gentle and sweet. My babies were treated very well. Their little dog Penny is sweet too and that is also how you can tell they love animals. I will not use anyone else to watch my babies...Very very happy with the experience!! Gave me so much relief...
Shiloh had so much fun with Stephanie and playing her dog, Penny, that he wasn't sure if he should leave with me. Stephanie kept me updated and sent photos which reinforced my feeling that I found the right place for him to stay while I was gone. He was treated with all the love and attention he would receive at home with me. When I travel in the future I will most definitely use her again and highly recommend her. If I could give more stars I would.
Tucker had a wonderful time with Stephanie, Penny, and Mike! I didn't worry about him at all while I was gone! Stephanie was very flexible with a meet and greet, a last minute vacation, and reservation dates. Their home is beautiful, and Tucker had a wonderful time! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone, and I will definitely contact her to watch Tucker again in the future!
Stephanie, Mike and their little pup, Penny, were the perfect hosts for our Borador, Jack. The two quickly made friends and I learned became inseparable during his week- long stay. Lots of fun was had at the dog park and they are very prompt in responding as to how he was doing each day and extending our visit a day longer than we originally booked.. So worth knowing he was not "caged" and was loved the entire week we were gone.
