About Manuela

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I've had dogs all my life, they've always been part of the family, participating in all family events and never left on their own. Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love, they depart to teach us about loss, A new dog never replaces an old dog, it merely expands the heart.
I'm a translator which means i work from home, so you don't need to worry , your babies will be with me all day!

Side note: I'll be on vacation in Europe from the 14th of March to the 1st of April, but I'll still be able to answer reservations or custom requests. Thank you!

My girl had a vacation with Manuela while I was off on mine. And I can say she loved it.
Manuela made sure Snowie was at ease and didn't want for anything. And i got beautiful pics and updates everyday which ensured I remained worry free. Thanks much Manuela for taking good care of my girl!
Manu is awesome with my puppy. She put me at ease during the meet and greet with the way she introduced my puppy to the other dogs. And I love getting the updates during the day.
My pup loved her stay here! She was able to run around and play with the other dogs. I received pictures daily of my dog having a great time! I would highly recommend!
Dear DogVacay,

You really need to add another star to the ratings system. You know...for Manuela.

ALL OF THE YESSES! I'm thrilled to have found an awesome, reliable home for my dog when I travel. Manuela is welcoming, and she takes what she does seriously. She was great about introducing my dog -- who can be a bit of a stinker upon first meeting -- to the other dogs one at a time. I received photo updates every day and her drop-off/pick-up times were flexible. I can't recommend her highly enough!!!
This was the best experience I've had so far on Manuela took great care of my senior golden retriever, Ella. She sent lots of pictures which I really appreciated as I was gone for about 2 weeks. It was easy to get in contact with Manuela if I needed to and she made the drop-off and pick-up super easy. I will definitely be booking with Manuela in the future.
Lucca totally bonded with Manuela. I was very pleased to get the daily photos. I will certainly use her again.
Kona had a great time! Manuela was very responsive and flexible on pick up and drop off times.
Manuela is awesome with my two dogs. They love her and she loves them. I always have peace of mind when I leave and that is priceless when it comes to my babies.
Tucker had a great time at Manuela's! She provided pictures everyday which helped me be more at ease leaving him for a whole week. We will definitely be going back to Manuela's soon.
This was Bandit's second vacay with Manuela and when we got out of the car he ran for the door so excited to see Manuela. I was feeling bad about leaving him and he was already running through the house greeting the housedogs and exploring the backyard. Manuela sent me photos a couple times and Bandit looked quite content. She clearly gives him plenty of loving.
Sophie loves staying with Manuela! She gets excited as we near the house knowing she's in for a dog party. We use Manuela whenever we have last minute travel and need dog care, she's so flexible and easy to work with, which means a lot to us. We'll be back soon!
Stella was treated like a queen and can't wait to go back! We were so happy with her care while we were out of town and we will be using Manuela again!
Manuela was great with boy lynk, he stayed for three nights and was in my opinion under excellent care while I was away, Manuela provided daily photo updates to show how he was doing and I can tell my dog had a wonderful time, definitely would recommend to other pet owners and she has gained my business from here on out if I ever need a sitter.
Great host. Happy hound. Total peace of mind. This is the simplest way to sum up my dog's stay with Manuela. She is caring, responsible, and really made sure she understood my dog's temperament and needs. I look forward to booking with her again!
Manuela provided a terrific experience for our young puppy. She was in frequent communication with us and provided updates throughout the vacay experience. Our pup came home each evening happy and tired! We will definitely be using her in the future for day and overnight pet sitting. Thank you!
Manuela was wonderful with Benji! She gave him his medicine, sent me pictures all the time, and is a very loving and caring person! He is very happy to go there. This is our second time too.
My little dudes had a great time at Manuela's! They got to enjoy the sunlight, run around in the grass, and snuggle with humans all day. Manuela also sent adorable pictures every morning. She also responded to emails within 20 minutes, which was much appreciated. Charlie and Remy will definitely be back for another stay :)
I appreciated Manuela taking such good care of my two dogs. She sent pictures daily which I really appreciate. Mine are on the needy side and she seemed to take care of their needs. Thank you Manuela!
Manuela was great with Otis. She went out of her way to make sure there were small and less intimidating dogs there during his first visit. Otis had fun and I look forward to bringing him there again soon!
Manuela is comforting and sensible with our dog. I know because I saw how he reacts to her, and when I picked him up, he was very happy. She has the experience to handle situations as our dog has separation issues. We will hire her again as we trust her judgement. She sent us pictures daily too!
She was great. Thank you so much!! $
I have taken my pups to Manuela's several times and am so glad that I found a place for them to hang out. Not only do I like that it is in a home (rather than having to kennel them) but am very confident in Manuela and her ability to take care of the dogs. She has two sweet pups of her own who are very friendly and were very welcoming to my pups and the meet and greet! I will continue to take my dogs to Manuela's :)
Perfect as usual!! Sophie loves her stay with Manuela and the other pup friends. Thank you!
Manuela was a wonderful and caring host, she provided images and even videos daily at my request. There was an incident with another dog and mine, but it was handled very well under the unfortunate circumstances. I would use her services again, and I know my pup would love to go back!
Manuela was a great host for Millie and we will definitely be using her again in the future! She sent us awesome pictures of Millie and we could tell Millie had a great time staying with Manuela and her dogs too!
I am very pleased with our experience with Manuela. Her house is clean she cares about the dogs, she's home all day with them, and they seem to be very happy and taken care of. She knows the different personalities of the different dogs and is genuinely interested in caring for the pets she has in her care. I will definitely use her again..Thank you.
Apollo's visit with Manuela was awesome! She is an extremely caring, loving, animal person and has a few dogs of her own, which helped Apollo feel comfortable right from the start! We were in a jam and needed care the next day, and Manuela responded very quickly and was very accommodating of our 6:30 am drop-off time, which was very appreciated :-) Apollo will definitely stay with Manuela the next time we are in town!
I just moved to Denver and had no idea who the awesome pet sitters were. I am SO thankful I found Manuela. She is so friendly and took in Daisy with open arms. She even calmed my nerves while I was at work, by sending adorable photos of Daisy. Manuela truly cares about the dogs and makes sure her clients’ needs are satisfied. I am so glad I feel comfortable leaving my pup with her. I highly recommend Manuela to anyone! You’re in good hands with her.
My pup was so happy at Manuela's! He had her two terriers to play with, plus a few big dogs to show him the ropes. Manuela sent both photo and email updates on how he was doing throughout the vacay and how he was getting along with the other pups. I have already spoken with her about having my pup again for my next trip and I think my pup is excited to return! A very positive experience!
Floyd was exhausted on the way home so I'm sure he had an awesome time. Thank you for taking such good care of him!!
Manuela was great with my dog, Dini! I could tell that Dini had a good time and was comfortable. I enjoyed the pictures that Manuela sent while my dog was with her and it made my time away from Dini a little easier.
Manuela & her partner made this entire experience pleasant and exponentially less stressful. They were extremely welcomimg to Coco. Will definitely be back!
Manuela was awesome! I received daily updates and photos on how my pup was doing. I will use her in the future for all my dog sitting needs!!
We were thrilled with the quality of Sophie's stay with Manuela. Her home situation is perfect for dogs with a dog door (for small dogs), fenced yard, lots of grass and shade, and freedom in the house. Manuela treated us to wonderful photos of Sophie which were much appreciated. Sophie was clearly having a good time will there! It also gives us peace of mind that Manuela is nearly always home, so our dog is not left alone very much, if at all. We are happy to have found Manuela - she clearly loves dogs and enjoys taking care of them.
Now that we've found dogvacay, and more importantly, Manuela, we will NEVER leave our dog anywhere else! We initially met with Manu and her dogs before we committed and our dog got along great with hers and warmed up to her quickly. We got pictures everyday showing how much fun he was having and even one showing him curled up on the couch with Manu, which we knew meant that he was feeling at home. Even when our flight was late getting back, she was so understanding and had no problem keeping him for a little longer. I will only ever leave Rio with Manuela for any future trips and feel comfortable knowing that he will get lots of love and attention.
Manu was incredible!! She sent daily photo updates to my email in the mornings and made sure to let me know my pups were having tons of fun! They both really loved their stay and were tired from all the playtime when we got them home. Manuela was completely understanding that I was sad to leave my pups for a long weekend and she completely put me at ease and ensured they would have a great stay. She even separated Oliver and sat with him until he finished his meals since he can be quite the slow eater and his sister will steal his food if he leaves it unattended. I am extremely happy with Manuela and without a doubt will be taking Pepper and Oliver there again anytime we need a sitter! You can tell she is a great person with a huge heart and lots of love for animals. She remembered every dog who has vacayed with her and told us stories about ones who come for day care that would be interacting with our pups.
I left my dog with Manu for almost 3 weeks. I was sad to be leaving her for that long, but Manu was so great! She sent me e-mails daily with updates and pictures, and I could tell my dog was happy and having a great time. She took such great care of my dog, and I would definitely recommend her!
The ladies took great care of our pups. We really enjoyed meeting them and their supercute resident dogs. Manuela sent us daily pictures and updates, which helped ease my anxiety as this was our first time leaving them for a whole week with anyone. It was clear that our dogs enjoyed their stay. The fact that both dogs gave the hosts doggy kisses when we were leaving meant a lot to me as they have to really trust and like you to do that. We would not hesitate to leave them at Manuela's again.
Rocco came home exhausted from all the puppy activity and attention he'd received from Manuela! We appreciated having him with someone who spoiled hi as much as we do.
Manuela sent beautiful daily pictures and took excellent care of my pup. I can tell she really loves dogs! I will definitely be booking with her again.
Baxtor Loved staying with Manuela and her family.
I was sent several photos a day with updates : ) and knowing Baxtor was so Loved helped us enjoy our trip even more.
He had several dogs to play with in a huge fenced in backyard, he had a vacation too!!
She is most wonderful with all dogs.... I am amazed and more than pleased. When I moved from NY I was apprehensive of ever finding someone who understood my crew. Manuela exceeded my highest expectations.
Manuela was great! This was the first time I traveled since getting my puppy so I was really nervous. Manuela is obviously an expert with dogs, has a huge loving heart, and cares well for her doggie guests. She sent me multiple emails and text updates throughout my trip and shared many photos showing me that my puppy was having a blast! I look forward to booking with Manuela again and knowing that my dog is in trustworthy, caring hands.
Manuela was amazing! I was a bit nervous because this was the first time I've ever used this kind of service, but Jax had such an amazing time. Manuela sent me updates every single day along with pictures of Jax playing with the other dogs. I would definitely recommend Manuela, and will be calling her for future dog vacays!
Manuela M was a lifesaver after I had a friend have to cancel dog sitting very last minute due to family illness. She gladly welcomed my dog very last minute and I could tell instantly she was a true dog lover, so could Jax!! She provides a ton of updates and photos! So that is always nice, except it looks like my dog is having a ton of fun and may not want to go home :-). Jax even gave her a bunch of kisses when I want to pick him up, so I know he was pretty happy to meet Manuela M and his other new dog friends!!! It is awesome having somone so close to my house that loves and spoils him for me while I am away. Makes it much easier to go out of town knowing my dog will be wel, cared for!!!
Manuela was awesome. I had to go out of town and find a dog sitter at the last minute and she was very accommodating. She took great care of my dog and sent pictures everyday. I will definitely send my pup to her again next time I have to leave.
Mya loved staying with Manu! Manu was really great with giving me updates throughout her stay. And didn't mind at all that I would check up on her 5 times a day. She treated my girl like her own and I'm already making bookings for daycare! I found my babysitter and she is a blessing!!
Manuela was great! We were anxious about our pups' first time with a stranger for a short vacation and she put us at ease about leaving them. You can tell she really enjoys the dogs. Her home is great for the dogs to get plenty of playtime in the yard and she sent us pictures each day that really helped put us all at ease about weather they were doing well. I was very pleased and will definitely be requesting Manuela next time we need a sitter!
Manuela was awesome and put us at ease on our vacation. She sent us photos daily and I could tell that Xander was having a blast. We will be using her again in the future and I highly recommend her!
Manuela is awesome and she takes great pics of your pup while you're away!
Manuela treated my dog like one of her own family members! I would highly recommend her. I loved getting the daily photos. Marley looked like he was having the time of his life.
Manuela was great- very responsive, friendly and you can tell she loves animals!
Milo loved playing with her small pups, and we had happy pictures to prove it-
This was our first experience with DogVacay and it was easy and smooth- was happy to know Milo was getting loved while we were out of town, recommend highly!
Manuela was great! She made sure both of our dogs were comfortable and took them everywhere. Also, she did a great job keeping us updated through the holidays. Would highly recommend!
