About Yvonne

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We require that all pups be up to date on flea/tick medication before boarding.


Ma and Paw would love to be your pets best friend away from home. We might spoil him (or her) but they will definitely not be bored. We have plenty of room to roam, (2 acres) and secure fencing all the way around. We also have lots of dog toys that our dogs would love to share. They will also be invited to walk with Ma at our nearby dog friendly community park where they may leash walk with me to their hearts content. In addition, our neighborhood is located on a quiet one mile long street with no thru traffic. This would be a perfect street for a quick stroll.
In our back yard, we built a sanctuary for 6 kittens that were abandoned on our property before their eyes were opened. We bottle fed them in our home until they were old enough to be safe outdoors. They are now grown and happy and safe in their outdoor sanctuary with trees to climb and fencing around for their protection plus they have an indoor condo that keeps them warm in the winter and shelter from the rain. (see pics)

Whether your canine is active or not so active, either way your baby will not be bored and that is a promise. I will do my best to take photos of your pet and keep you informed of how we are doing. Thank you for considering our home away from home for your pet companion.

Very kind to my puppy
Yvonne was wonderful. Abbey had such a great time and was in great hands. We are new to the area and uneasy about leaving our dog with a stranger but Yvonne quickly put our mind at ease. I will continue to use Yvonne to watch my Abbey and I think Abbey will look forward to playing in Yvonne's big back yard.

I have used Yvonne three times now! She is absolutely amazing and her home is the perfect place for dogs! Lots of land to run around on!
yvonne was awesome. She was very sensitive about how much my dogs mean to me and extremely good about sending me updates daily. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Always a great stay with Yvonne! Our dog loves going there!
Our large Doberman, Kane had a wonderful stay with Yvonne. He bonded with her immediately and loves the large yard to roam in. We are planning to board Kane with Yvonne whenever we go out of town. Highly recommend her!
I wouldn't leave my dog with anyone but Yvonne.
Yvonne is the best
Don't know what we would do without Yvonne. Bella loves her.
The best as always
Greatest sitter ever!!
Yvonne was great!! JJ was right at home in her care. We appreciate knowing that he was safe while we were on vacation. We look forward to using her again!
Yvonne is by far the best dog sitter I have ever come across. I have used her services now 5 or 6 times and will continue doing so. She is great with the four legged animals and has a wonderful yard for them to play and run around. Yvonne is dependable and very conscience in caring for all her animal guest.

Yvonne was a terrific sitter for our Scrappy! She let him snuggle and gave him tender, loving care! I would highly recommend her to care for your pet!
Yvonne is the best! We will definitely be back!
Our Louie had a great stay with Yvonne. Her updates and pictures on how his day was going were so appreciated and we knew that he was in good hands and having fun. Thanks Yvonne!
Kind, caring and attentive Yvonne is truly a 'pawsome' sitter. Her large fenced yard is ideal for dogs. Updates provided throughout the day kept us informed.
Yvonne and her husband are very friendly and really care about the dogs that stay with them. Yvonne keep us informed during our dogs stay. She sent updates, pictures, and videos. She even allowed Cutter (our dog) to sleep in their king size bed. We highly recommend Yvonne and DogVacay and intend on using her for future stays.

Loved the area!
I can't say enough good things about Yvonne! I don't board my 13 year old dog often and I was nervous about leaving him when we went to Florida. I shouldn't have worried a bit - Yvonne took such great care of him. (And spoiled him a little bit! :) She sent pictures and videos each day which put me at ease seeing how happy he was! She has a wonderful house and lots of outside area for dogs to roam safely! You can really tell that she loves taking care of dogs. Her resident pups are friendly and got along really well with our old boy Marley. I'm pretty sure he didn't want to come home with us when we picked him up because he had such a great time! I'm so happy to have found Yvonne, I will definitely be booking her again if we go on any trips anytime soon!

Love the area she has for the dogs, how she sent me pictures and updates! So sweet!
Yvonne is an outstanding pet sitter......caring, loving and very conscience! My dog Brandy got along very well with her two pups, was spoiled with treats, and she also has a wonderful yard for the dogs to run and play. Yvonne was also great about sending me pictures and video of my dog while I was away.

It is a one hour drive from my house to Yvonne's, but, well worth the drive. My little dog had a wonderful mini vacation. Yvonne's loving care is just what I was hoping for. I'll be leaving Rio with her again the in the Spring for a 3 week stay. If you have a small dog you would like to receive loving attention, Yvonne is the person you are looking for. I highly recommend her.

It feels so good to drop Bella off with Yvonne and see how excited she gets and runs into the house ...totally ignoring the fact that we are leaving... LOL
Bella LOVES visiting Yvonne.
Yvonne is a very compassionate and kind dog sitter and person. She made my dogs feel like they were right at home in her home. They were happy and content when I picked them up. That is so important to me. I will recommend her as long as "you" don't book when her I Need Her!

Yvonne was very friendly and attentive and Gus seemed to have a great time!
Yvonne always goes above and beyond to take the very best care of our Buster and Blossom. We were in Europe and still received pictures and videos of our kiddos. It was awsome... I would highly recommend Yvonne to anyone.. Thank you so much!
Yvonne is great! She sent pictures and videos of Cole so that I knew he was doing just fine. There is a large yard for dogs to roam. I love leaving Cole with Yvonne instead of a regular boarding place because I know he gets extra attention and plenty of time to run around. I would highly recommend Yvonne!

As always, Bella loved her stay.
Yvonne was awesome! Seeing the pictures and videos of my dog while we were away gave me a great feeling that our dog was enjoying her stay and was comfortable with her surroundings. I am so glad I found dog vacay. i knew my dog would hate me if i put her in a kennel. She loved it at Yvonne's and I would not hesitate to board her there again. Yvonne has a big yard for the dogs to run and play which is especially great if you have a big dog or one that likes to run all day like mine does. When they were not outside, they were indoors enjoying the ac.

Yvonne is AWESOME!!!! I was nervous to leave Molly on her first vacay with someone she didn't know, but she absolutely loved it! Yvonne sent me pictures everyday to give me updates and took great care of my sweet girl. She has a great space for dogs and gives them lots of love. I would recommend and reuse her a million times over. I am so grateful for her hospitality.

I am so grateful that we had Yvonne to look out for Abby. Besides daily text messages and pictures of Abby having fun with the other animals, Yvonne went the extra mile. It was as if Abby were their own pet. She slept on their bed, hung out on the couch and became a member of the family. Abby has been ill and Yvonne handled the situation with loving care. We are SO grateful that Abby had a home for the week!

Yvonne is AMAZING! She was able to accommodate my last minute boarding needs. Her house is huge with lots of room for running and play. Buck had a a blast and he came back good and tired
Buddy loved his vacation at Yvonne's. We loved Buddy's vacation at Yvonne's. Yvonne sent us updates and photos daily and we got to see the great time Buddy was having at her property and playing with the other dog guests as well. Will use her again and again!!

This was our first experience using DogVacay for our 7 month old puppy, Cole. I am so happy that we found Yvonne. Even though on the first day of his visit, Cole, who is not yet neutered, got a little "friendly" with Yvonne's own dogs and the others she was boarding, he finally settled down and had a nice visit. I know he loved roaming around in the large yard and having other dogs to play with. It is clear that Yvonne cares so much about the dogs she is taking care of. She sent pictures showing me how much Cole was enjoying his stay. It was so nice to relax on our time away knowing that Cole wasn't cooped up at a kennel not getting to run around. I hope we'll be able to let Cole stay with Yvonne on future trips.

3 dogs.... one German Shepherd and 2 Yorkies.... Yvonne did a great job. Our dogs love her
I have 3 small dogs that have never spent the night away from home before. I was concerned that they would not do well being away from their home and familiar faces. I should not have worried at all. Right off the bat the dogs took to Yvonne and they loved exploring in her fabulous country yard. I also was a little concerned that my pups would be intimidated by the larger dog that is a resident dog. Not to worry there either. All got along very well. Yvonne's dogs are used to having strange visitors and they seem to enjoy it. Yvonne sent a video of my dogs having a good sleep over at her house which put my mind at ease. My dogs loved Yvonne and her husband, Allen. I plan to be gone for a week and a half during the summer. I'm so glad that I've found someone I can trust my pets with.

Yvonne was busy on this date but changed her plans to accept our dogs early. We love Yvonne and Alan! Thank you for everything!
Both dogs had a wonderful stay! I think Roo misses Yvonne and Alan's big yard to run around.... She has a lot of energy! Her dogs are very accommodating with new dogs and seem to enjoy other dogs staying at their place.
Yvonne and Alan are wonderful people! They are both animal lovers and included our dogs as part of their family. We have a young and an old dog and they both enjoyed their stay. Yvonne sent us texts with pictures and videos, so we could see how they were handling their new surroundings. We are very picky about boarding our dogs and will continue to take our animals to Yvonne and Alan.

We love, love, love Yvonne ! And so did our Lab Newt. She was so accommodating & helpful getting me through the process. She answered all my questions...she made us feel assured right from the start...Yvonne and her husband couldn't of been any nicer. Newt felt comfortable with them right away. Newt loved playing with her 2 dogs. It was an awesome experience. I would HIGHLY recommend Yvonne! Fantastic, awesome, delightful people! We've found our forever host in San Antonio! Thank you Yvonne!

We couldn't be more pleased with the care Yvonne gives to our Buster and Blossom. So grateful we found her......
Let me start off by saying that Yvonne is an INCREDIBLE host! If you want someone kind, caring, attentive, and loving to take care of your loved pet, then Yvonne is the host for you!
I was beyond impressed with how thoughtful she was in taking care of my 1.5 year old mini goldendoodle, Dakoda. Not only was Yvonne more than happy to take in our dear Dakoda during the Christmas holidays (and New Years too!), but the amount of love and attention that she provided Dakoda was evident through the daily pictures and videos that she sent to us during the vacay!
Dakoda was constantly outside in Yvonne's massive backyard, playing, jumping, running, and basically having the time of her life as Yvonne played with her all throughout the day! Dakoda could not have looked happier in those pictures we got of her playing fetch with a variety of new toys (some of which Yvonne even gave to us to keep upon our return, since she knew how much Dakoda loved the new toys)!
Additionally, Yvonne was more than willing to follow our somewhat complicated instructions of how to feed Dakoda (we give her chicken and kibble), and even went above and beyond and wrote me a card of food suggestions that she had received from her vet! It included giving Dakoda green beans with her food (which Yvonne started giving Dakoda upon receiving permission from me, of course!), and also gave Dakoda treats of sweet potato fries, freshly baked by her!
Upon picking up Dakoda at the end of the vacay I could instantly tell how happy Dakoda was/had been on her vacay, and I could see how comfortable she was with Yvonne and her house :) I could even go as far as to say that Dakoda may have wanted to stay longer, haha!
Needless to say we will ABSOLUTELY be coming back to Yvonne when we are in need of someone to take care of our dear Dakoda and her new puppy brother, Lumie. Yvonne exceeded my expectations of what a dog sitter should do, and I feel 100% comfortable and at ease with trusting Yvonne to take care of my doggie children.
Thank you SO much Yvonne, you are an extremely sweet and loving person and we are so happy that we found you to take care of our dogs because without you we would not be able to go on vacations of our own! THANK YOU!!!!!

Yvonne take such good care of our Buster and Blossom. I am do grateful I found Dogvacay and expecially Yvonne!!!
Yvonne goes out of her way to take care of my babies......
Great as always
Love Yvonne, and more important...so do my dogs...
We cannot begin to tell you how totally pleased with Buster and Blossom's stay with Yvonne S. She was so eager to know their routine and took excellent care of them. The pictures were just wonderful and even got our little Buster to wear his T-shirt when going out in the cold. :-)) It made our trip SO much more enjoyable and I highly recommend Yvonne. We can travel now with total peace of mine. Thank you!!!

Jasper absolutely loved staying with Yvonne and the gang! He had so much fun running around on their great property and cuddling up with them inside. We have already booked another vacay for Jasper! :)
Yvonne was absolutely fantastic with our very large German Shepherd Aspen. She exceeded our expectations and even went as far as to email/text pics of our baby almost daily while we were on vacation. Aspen absolutely loved her large yard and her playmates. This gave us such peace of mind knowing that she was enjoying her staycation as much as we were enjoying our vacation. Yvonne we can't thank you enough for taking such great care of our Aspen! Seeing how we are new to TX and have no family you and the service you provide to dogs such as ours (that just aren't cut out for that kennel boarding) is a blessing. We will definitely be using you again in the future!

Could not be happier..... repeat user.....
Our dog Sahara loved her time with Yvonne. She has a great property that allows for plenty of outside time and her dogs are really sweet and welcoming. Yvonne is a wonderful caretaker. She really loves dogs and it clearly shows. We have already booked our next stay with Yvonne.

As always a great stay. Got at least two pictures a day of my dogs activities..... they are very happy dogs. Love love love Yvonne.
After we we arrived back from our last vacation our puppy prince, was sick for months and wouldn't eat. We finally found out that he had eaten a brillo scrubbing pad and almost had to get it surgically removed.

Understandably we were hesitant to leave him again but after reviewing Yvonne's profile we decided to give her a chance.

We're so glad that we did!

We got pictures and updates of him daily, and he had that perfect mix of exhausted happiness that told us that he enjoyed his stay but was happy to be home!

Yvonne is amazing with animals (including cats) and is one of the sweetest ladies that you will ever meet.

Some of the benefits that ensure that we will be using Yvonne from now on are:

*Friendly non threatening companion dogs so your baby can have vacation buddies to satisfy their pack urges

*Experienced Caring Host who observes your dog constantly making sure that they don't get into anything that can hurt them.

* Large fenced in backyard, offering a variety of different sights and smells that will thrill your dogs senses.

If you have been looking for a sitter that you can trust some of your most precious cargo to without worry...Look no further!

Thanks Yvonne!

I love how Yvonne sends me pictures of my fur babies so I know they are doing good. She even went out and bought a dog frisbee for my dog Bella as Bella likes nothing better than to chase one. Be back again and again.....
I was very very pleased. Keeping two big dogs is no easy task. I really appreciated the pictures during their stay... I will be back again. Thanks guys.
I've been trying out multiple hosts in the SA area and I think I've found the one :) She sends updates and pictures. I have a extra large breed (english mastiff) who is also a finicky eater and she made him feel right at home! Great sitter and will definitely be using for ALL future vacations.

Evon is a great host - she loves the dogs (2 Golden Retrievers) and treats them as her own. Lots of open space for play and exercise, and she takes them on long walks in the neighborhood and cares for them individually. No need to look further for a great keeper, Evon is the best.

We had an amazing experience and Daisy enjoyed her visit immensely. I would highly recommend them for other people and we will definitely go back!
