About Penelope

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes for the Blind; House/dog sit local residents and their pets on numerous occasions; We are retired and love to hike, snowshoe and walk the beaches with dogs we keep; They would be pampered by us, being treated exactly as we treat our own pets, with love and great care - living in our home with us, not outside tied to a dog house. My husband Ernie also loves pets, has had a few rescue dogs and would care for your pup along with myself. Our dogs have passed away and we prefer now to pet sit rather than own a pet now so they would be extra special for us to care for. PLEASE NOTE: We will take pups under 2 years but they MUST be house trained or crate trained. We cannot take pups that have separation anxieties - it may be possible for us to sit in your home if this is the case.

A very good experience. Rigby was very happy and we were too.
Penny & Ernie were super- our dog had a great week visiting with them at their beautiful and home and property in Maine.
Penelope and husband were very open to Bonaparte.
Penny & Ernie were wonderful hosts. They have a lovely home in the woods. Our dog was well cared for and given lots of love and outdoor time. We received frequent updates and photos! Highly recommend!
Penny and Ernie are the best!
Our rescue is still getting socialized to new situations and can be very shy and anxious. So when we had to leave him for two nights we had no idea how he would react. Penny was totally understanding of our dog's (and our own) nerves. She treated Monty like her own and let him make himself at home so he felt calm. She sent us pictures throughout the weekend so we could relax knowing our pup was safe and comfortable.
If we didn't live so far away we would have Monty stay with Penny every time we went away!

Penny and Ernie are absolutely the best dog sitters we could have possibly hoped for. They welcomed both our dogs into their home for a week... even though we have one dog with some issues. They took great care to learn and understand what our dogs needs were, and absolutely showered them with the love and affection we had hoped for. We got photos and text messages updating us on the dogs status, which put a smile on our face and ensured we enjoyed our time away not having to worry about our pets. We will absolutely use DogVacay again, and most certainly Penny and Ernie... they are indeed top notch care givers, friends to our doggies, and now our friends. Fantastic!

Penny and Ernie were the perfect hosts when I had to leave Addie behind for a night while away on business. I was updated frequently with pictures and I am sure Addie could not have been happier. Addie went on several walks and adventures during her stay. I would highly recommend Penny and Ernie, and Addie will certainly be staying with them in the future.
