About Felicia

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs! Dogs! Dogs! I love dogs! All my life I have been around dogs. We are an animal loving family with a large securely fenced backyard.
Dog Vacay guests move about the large spacious yard and home freely and are supervised inside and out.

I am a dog mom to Daisy a 4 year-old Wheaton Terrier mix rescue and Coco a Toy Poodle rescue. Daisy loves to run and play with dog friends. Coco being only 5 lbs. is more of a cuddle buddy.
I stay at home with my two dogs during the day. My husband works from home some time. There is always someone here.

When we accept a guest booking, we take great care to make sure all dogs temperaments blend so everyone has a comfortable stay. We are only able to accept reservations for dogs who are spayed or neutered and up to date on their shots. (Proof of rabies vaccination is required at time of drop off. ) We also require all dogs be current on flea/tick and heart worm treatments.
My pups do well with pups a year and a half and older.

We are a non smoking home

I will happily send daily Dog updates and pictures via email or text.
Please schedule a meet and greet before boarding. Please add $10 per night for dogs over 40lbs. My $35/$45 fee is per 24 hour period. A daycare charge will occur after 3 hours of the original drop off time.

Truly the best experience!! Our dogs were well cared for, loved and happy. She's the best.
Felicia was great, very easy to work with and posted a bunch of photo updates during our vacation!
Felicia is amazing! I'm so happy I found her! I left my two pups with her for a week while we went out of the country. She sent me pictures on a daily basis which I appreciated so much. It was so great to see how happy and well cared for they were. Felicia and her family treated my dogs like their own and I can't thank her enough for that!
For the second time in 3 months, we had to go out of the country on business. Thankfully, Felicia had an opening to watch Lola while our son was at work. We've decided that Felicia is like the fun aunt you get to visit on summer vacation. Fun yard, great family and pets that give Lola lots of attention. Again, like last time, she gets so excited when our son turns onto Felicia's street. A dog's body language says everything, and Lola doesn't hold back on the joy. We would get photos of what Lola was doing on any given day, which would just melt our hearts. I was so happy to see her playing in the leaves--she loves to do that! Only the coolest of fun aunts has chickens to chase in the yard : ). We received lots of wet kisses when we returned home last night, but I'm sure Lola can't wait to go back again! Thank you, Felicia, for the peace of mind that Lola was having a blast!!!
Felicia and her family are such great people. Now that we know Felicia we could not imagine leaving our little yorkie anywhere else. While you are away you are receiving a lot of updates and pictures. They take great care of our dog like if it is their own.
Once again thanks again Felicia for everything !
Felicia is awesome very friendly she took good care of our pomeranian rocsie.I really like the fact that she shared so many pictures with us during her stay I will definitely be one of her returning customers.
Felicia was great! Coco was very well looked after. Coco had a nice yard to run around and she loved her stay with Felicia. I loved the photos and videos Felicia posted on DogVacay website.
Felicia was an excellent host and took care of our dog Max like her own. I would definitely recommend booking her as a host if you need overnight boarding.
Felicia and her family were wonderful to our pups! We received a number of photos and it was clear that they were well cared for and very happy! I could tell that my guys were well treated and had a lot of fun as well. They received the same love and attention we would normally give our guys. Would most certainly recommend boarding here to anyone looking for a safe place to leave their dogs. Very loving family!
She was Great! Can't wait to get to work with her again!
We had to leave our yorkiepoo, Lola, for 10 days, and were really anxious because we have never left her that long. We needed daycare since our son was home in the evenings, and didn't want to board her at a kennel or at the local pet store. Dogvacay was new to me, but I found Felicia right away and loved her reviews and profile. Their backyard is wonderful--huge and fenced in, with lots of places for dogs to explore (and chickens!). The whole family treated Lola so well, and Felicia sent a video and photos daily that reassured us that Lola was being cared for lovingly. Our son would drop Lola off before he went to work, and said that she would get excited when he turned onto Felicia's street. That really says it all! This was my first experience with dogvacay, and it was extremely positive. Love how they make the process very customer friendly.

I don't see a way to post a photo on this review, but the funniest one was a pic my son took one of the evenings after Lola's visit with Felicia. She was laying on her back in total happy exhaustion after a fun day. Thank you so much, Felicia (Thank you also, Ayla, for teaching Lola how to shake paws--that was such a fun surprise!)
We have never left our Shih Tzu Charlie with anyone but family so we were a little anxious. In addition to his food, we had sent along his bed and a toy so he would have some familiar objects with him. He didn't need them as Felicia made him feel completely at home. She welcomed Charlie into her family and he had a great time! She sent us lots of picture updates (including one of him making himself quite comfortable in her daughter's bed) and he definitely looked happy. I would definitely use Felicia again and recommend her to any of my friends who are looking for a DogVacay.
My dog had a great time. Felicia kept me up to date with his stay via email pictures and videos. I love that. She let me know that he was doing great and texted me to make sure I was getting the updates. I would recommend felicia and plan to use her again for our next trip. Thanks Felicia!
Felicia did a great job watching my two dogs. We had a meet-and-greet first and it seemed to be a good match for my dogs and hers. She sent me some photos too while I was gone. Her children also helped keep them company. I would definitely return when I travel. Good communication also!
Coco had such a fun visit with Felicia and family! We enjoyed seeing daily pictures of Coco playing with his new friends. We are planning on visiting again soon! Thanks Felicia!
Felicia and her family were wonderful sitters for our Chester. Will definitely try to have him stay with them again.
It was great to receive pictures of our dog from Felicia during our dog's "vacay".
Once again Tiger had a great time with Felicia and her family ! We love so much the daily pictures of our little baby dog !! Thanks again Felicia for everything !
We contacted Felicia last minute and she was quick to respond and was so accomadating for a meet up time. She sent us pictures and updates via text. She put great effort into making sure our pup felt safe and comfortable in her home. So thankful we found Felicia, we were able to enjoy our vacation and our dog was well taken care of! Thanks Felicia :)
We moved in Naperville on January. Nobody except our family took care of our little Tiger while we were on vacation.

We found through Dog Vacay a wonderful family.

Last week was the third time that Felicia and her family took great care of our dog. As usual Felicia kept us up to speed with daily pictures of Tiger! It makes us feel pretty good to see him while we are away !

Thanks again Felicia and we are looking forward to see you again
Carole & JR
Our dog had the best time ever. He had so much fun that he was just as tired as us after spending the weekend! Felicia sent so many beautiful videos and pictures that we got to see how great of hands we left our little man in. I would for sure use her again!
Felicia and her family are so good to Palmer. He gets spoiled by them. Sleeps in their beds and he makes himself right at home. The fenced yard is great for him. I really appreciate them taking care of Palmer like their own!
Thanks so much to Felicia and her family. This was the first time that we left our dog Makena. She had such a great time with them and playing with all of the other dogs. Thanks so much for sending the pictures and videos too so we could see how much fun she was having!
I'd highly recommend Felicia and will happily use her service in the future.
Another great stay for Tiger with Felicia and her family ! Very happy to receive pictures of Tiger frequently. Thanks again Felicia , and Tiger will meet you again next month !
Felicia and her family took great care of our 4-month old puppy. As much as we missed our little pup, it was comforting to know he was in good hands.

Felicia sent us daily updates and pictures of him. They have a large, fenced-in yard for the dogs to run around in. We would definitely go back to her the next time we need a pet sitter.
Felicia and her family are extraordinary and welcoming people.

Their dogs Daisy and Coco get alone pretty well with our little Tiger !

We are more than happy to have found a nice family which takes great care of our dog during our time away from home.

Felicia keeps you updated daily with pictures and notes.

We strongly recommend Felicia and her family.
Thanks again Felicia for everything. We will certainly request your services in a very near future.
Carole, JR and Tiger !!!
We are very happy with the way Felicia and her family took care of Our family member. All the members of the family welcomed our dog to their family. Felicia constantly sent update through pictures and videos. Our dog was very happy. We had a wonderful experience. Thank You Felicia!
Felicia and her family are such wonderful, warm and attentive hosts. They took such great care of our Chester while we were away! I could tell he had a wonderful time playing with their pups, in their giant yard and staying with them. We look forward to having him stay with them again. It makes such a difference to know that your pup is in great hands and we could tell that he would be as soon as we met them. Thanks for giving us peace of mind so that we could have more fun during our weekend getaway; meant so much!
We could not be more pleased with the loving care Felicia and her family provided for our dear Copper. She was very attentive and welcoming and made sure anything he needed was provided. Felicia also sent us a number of adorable pictures of our dog hanging out and interacting with her family that put our mind at ease about how things were going. We are so pleased with how things went that we have already scheduled a second reservation!
Felicia was fantastic. My dogs had so much fun. Felicia sent me pictures of the dog each day that we were away. She could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We are now looking for more vacations so that we can send the dogs to Felicia.
Felicia did an awesome job - Apollo came back a very happy camper. He loved his stay with Felicia, she took great care of him. He got along very well with Daisy and Coco. I also appreciated the daily updates and the pics.

Would definitely go back to her when we need to leave Apollo for a vacay.
Daisy and Ziggy had a great time with Felicia and her family. Great communication and got daily updates.
