About Anna

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*FULL TIME AT HOME PET SITTER *CAGE & CRATE FREE AT ALL TIMES

Have an upcoming event and short on options with who to trust with your companion? Family vacation or business trip, but no room for the pet? You'll be sure to feel secure knowing your dog is in the hands of a dog trainer and an interning veterinarian technician! Your dog will have the comfort and security of a fenced in play area long enough for them to stretch their legs and get plenty of exercise, relaxing dog friendly environment and endless toys. Quiet & safe neighborhood with multiple dogs around so when it's time for a walk, your pup will meet lots of new friends for now and the future! Don't settle for overpriced facilities when you can have more affordable affection right at home!
*Receive a free booking for every referral you send me way*

I want your pet to enjoy their vacation more than yours, so make sure you've packed everything they need and double check!

WHAT TO PACK?
1.-ALWAYS provide your own food supply, changing diets = upset stomach - "BAD VACAY"
2. Bowls for food and water
3. TREATS!! Who doesn't want those while on a trip.
4. TOYS! At least one toy to play with that they might be used too. WARNING:could get destroyed, nothing too valuable please.
5. BED-you want your loved one to be just as comfy here as they are at home, please pack either a bed-blanket/towel/pillow.
6.(not required) Any vitamins/supplements-please include instructions and let me know ahead of time.
7. Put a little something small from the family so they have your scent at all times, like a tshirt/sock/towel. Everyone gets a little homesick so I want them to feel as if a little part of you is with them the entire time.
8. PLEASE include an emergency contact #/local veterinarian information.

-All these items are NOT required for the stay, but I prefer to have the happiest guests while on vacation!

PICK UP & DROP OFF:
I will wake up at the crack of dawn or stay awake past midnight for you to drop off and pick up your baby, there is no better feeling then getting home to a happy dog ready to see their family. I am open to pick up and drop offs during ANY time of the day & night.

This was the first time we left our high energy puppy with a sitter and the experience was wonderful! Zeus took to Anna as if they were longtime friends and with his tail wagging left to explore his temporary home with Anna. Anna gave Zeus the attention he needed and took care of my pup even with his bum paw that was treated by a vet only hours before. I felt at ease leaving Zeus in her care and will be having Anna sit for us in the future.

My boys loved Anna! She took great care of them while I was away over the weekend and sent me lots of pictures
Puppies loved their temporary mom Anna can sit for my pups anytime.
I really like Anna for my dog. I've gone there twice already and honestly even if someone else offered the same services, and at a less expensive rate I would stay with Anna. One reason why is because my dog genuinely likes her but secondly, my dog eats well over there, plays and comes back better than I left her. I definitely recommend Anna to anyone looking for a sitter.

Anna was awesome for our first time using Dog Vacay! She attended to our needs, our pups needs, and made us feel so comfortable leaving our dog with her! She is great and would highly recommend her! We will be using her again!
Anna was absolutely incredible and i plan on using her again! She had a clean home and was immediately friendly but stern with my german shepherd. I would suggest her to anyone, especially with breeds that some people are afraid of! AMAZING!
Anna is great, Dexter had a blast staying with her.
Milo had a blast at Anna's! She was so kind and professional. Sent me pics and kept me updated everyday! My pup can't wait to go back for thanksgiving!
she was great piper had a blast
Anna is the best host we've ever left nala with. Nala is always super excited when she knows she's going to her house and comes home super happy and tired from playing. Highly recommend Anna no complaints at all.
Anna is an excellent pet sitter!
Anna was amazing. My babies were in love with her and she kept us upto date with status updates every day. Will definitely be using her for all my pet sitting needs. It was my first time using dogvacay and i must say i am EXTREMELY happy.
Anna made three visits to our house while we were gone for a long day trip. She let me know via text when she got to the house and when she left and sent several photos each time so I know that she stuck carefully to the schedule we agreed upon. My dogs were smiling and panting in the photos so I know they got some good love and exercise. I felt very comfortable having her at my house and felt that the dogs were in good hands.

Anna was awesome! She reached out to me right away to arrange the plans for the drop off and instructed me on everything I needed to bring. When I got to the house, she was waiting outside and couldn't have been more friendly. She took Nickel through the house to get acquainted and then introduced her to the other two dogs she had staying there. Everyone got along great! Anna sent me text message updates throughout the stay, including pictures of my girl, and really took the time to make sure that both me, and more importantly Nickel, were happy. Thank you!

Definitely will be giving Anna a call the next time I go out of town, she did an amazing job with my ginormous Cane Corso, who is nothing short of a handful. She kept me updated and was very flexible when It came to picking him up and dropping him off. Her home has ample space and her backyard is impressively well built to take excellent care of any size dog. You can see that Anna genuinely loves and cares for animals, I would do it again in a heart beat!

Anna kept us informed of our boxer puppy's activities.
Anna was outstanding. She gave me updates during my two dogs stay with her. I could tell they enjoyed their time with her, as my little boy was still showing her affection while he was in my car getting ready to go home. I will definitely recommend her to others I work with.

Anna was AMAZING! This was my 11 month old 90 lb pups first time away from home! The video and photo updates made me feel much better about leaving her. My pup is not easy by any means, but Anna knew just how to handle her and I felt so so comfortable. I picked her up yesterday and she was so happy and tired from a full day of playing! Sasha will definitely be staying at Anna's again!

Anna was great! She sent multiple pictures a day to show me hoe Zoey was doing. She was very prompt in responding to all of my messages and was extremely flexible. I could tell Zoey had a blast and met several new friends! I will defintely be using Anna again. Thank you!

We have two energetic 1 1/2 year old lab mix boys. They had a great time with Anna! We met Anna they day before and felt extremely comfortable leaving our babies with her. She took her time introducing our boys to her other guests. She was professional, accommodating, and sent us updates and pictures. Her house is set up with her guests in mind. We will definitely use Anna again! Thank you.

Anna was great!!! Jacob became comfortable right away and she took really good care of him. Very happy!
Awesome as always Thanks Anna! :)!
Anna was great. Clearly loves dogs and definitely has a house and a sizable yard geared to take care of them.

She kept my 1.5 year old un-neutered Siberian Husky for a week and he did great. I got daily pictures of him with that day's activities and she was prompt and prepared when I went to pick him up.

Super great service, will definitely use her again next time.

Anna was fantastic!!!! The wife and I came to the Hollywood Florida area to stay for 5 days so we could attend the Nascar race in Homestead, Fl. on 11/22/2105. Due to the length of races we needed a sitter for our 3 dogs. I made arrangements with Anna to watch our 3 pups. She accepted even on short notice. Well we dropped off the pups and met this wonderful young lady. She took the time to show us where the pups would be and a tour of the yard they would be playing in. A nice fenced in yard with room to stretch. Also Anna was willing to work with us on times. Races vary in times due to weather, etc so we could not give her an exact pick up time. She was fine with that. In addition if needed she was willing to keep them overnight or watch them the next day if the race was rescheduled due to weather. Well she took great care of our 3 pups and was genuinely caring about their well being which was obvious. If your in this area and need a sitter for your furbabies contact her. You will never have to be concerned about them. She sends photo's and updates via text so you'll never have to worry. Thank you Anna....

Excellent job! New to town and needed some quick help and Anna was a perfect choice. Immediate attention and patience was appreciated. So glad I found Anna and it's great to know she is there if needed.
I had my dog for 4 years and this weekend was the first time I left him with someone else, Anna did an amazing job with him, always told me how he was doing and sent a lot of pictures! I definitely recommend her because she is awesome! A true animal lover! Thanks Anna you're the best!

Anna got back to me so last minute, 7am last minute, and was very patient and accommodating in a stressful situation. I got to her home around 9am with Boston in tow, and as I was talking to her I was feeling more and more comfortable. I was down from Orlando last minute to be with family at the hospital, and was so stressed and sleep deprived I had to go back to the car a few times as she mentioned things.
Luckily, she knew everything to ask that I was forgetting to mention. I got regular pictures of the pup with updates on how she settled in (just fine), and Anna got back to me within minutes on any of my questions or input if I thought of something to mention.
Boston was happy as a clam when we picked her up, and settled into the car quickly. We asked her to have one more go in the yard before we picked her up for the ride home and she was tuckered for the drive up.
Would recommend Anna, and would have Boston stay with her again.

I left my 5 month-old puppy, Teddy, with Anna, and it was a great experience. I loved that she was home during the day with him, and that he wasn't kept in a crate for hours on end. She was even OK with the fact that he's not completely housebroken yet. Teddy had a great time, and she even gave him a bath! I will definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends.

Anna is awesome, she sent doggie updates and photos while we were away. This is the first time we used dogvacay and was very happy with Anna. We feel very comfortable having Anna as our furbaby sitter... Thank you Anna!
Very happy with Anna.
This is the 2nd time miss Anna has taken care of your boy Simon. It was a last minute request due to having to fly out of state for a family memorial. Not only was she accomidating to the last minute request but was very flexible as to when we dropped off and picked up. When we told Simon he was going to see his miss Anna he was so excited. When we arrived he ran out of the car and right into the house. He went to "his" bedroom and settled in quickly. Then took a around the house to to check out all the other rooms and to chew on all the bones! Anna sent pics and him sitting waiting for treats from the the special treat drawer! There is just no better sitter out there! Anna truly treats Simon like her own and spoils him just as much as we do. If you are tlooking for the best sitter you HAVR to pick Anna! Thanks again Anna your the best!!!

Anna is the BEST!!!!! We couldn't be happier with the care she gave our boy. From the beginning she was professional and accommodating. She took the time before Simon's stay to meet with us to get to know Simon and he immediately took to her. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. When we dropped him off she had us come in and see where his "bedroom" was and let him explore. When we left he barely knew we were gone. Durning our whole vacation Anna sent up-dates and pictures. She even assured us when there was a storm(he usually hides in the bathroom and shakes) that he was fine, she kept him occupied with toys and stayed with him. While he was there he made new friends and was able to play and explore the backyard with his new buddies. When we came to pick him up he was happy and healthy. If you are considering a sitter from pet vacay the only one you should choose is Anna!

My pups love Ana! They have a great time, and I know they are safe and well cared for. This was our second dogvacay with Ana and we will be back again.
Anna was the perfect choice and I would highly recommend her to my friends with dogs.
Anna M has a delightful energy which she uses to make the environment for her day care dogs a treat. It is always good to see someone do what they do....well.
Our dogs had a great time!!! They had plenty of room to run around. Anna sent us pictures and let us know they were doing well. They were clean and their beds/blankets all made it home safely. I think our dogs were disappointed to come home!! We would love it if Anna watched our pups again.

Anna did an amazing job with our boston terrier, Murphy.

On their first meeting you could tell she had a passion for animals and it showed in the care she provided. She was everything we could have wanted in a dog sitter, communicative, attentive and an all around amazing person.

Murphy usually loses his appetite when we go away and typically will not eat, even when he is being watched by close friends whom he is familiar with. Anna kept his activity level up and got him to eat regularly which was a fantastic surprise for us. That was an added bonus which helped ease our minds knowing he was in such capable hands.

Thanks so much, Anna! We look forward to using you again when the need arises!

Anna is simply put amazing! She has such a warm personality and really cares for all animals. I've left my Sophie with her numerous times and on each occasion Sophie is ecstatic when I pick her up. Not only that but Anna has been wonderful enough to pick her up from my home when I couldn't drop her off and at the very last minute too! Every time Sophie sees Anna now she's thrilled. I absolutely recommend her!

As we pull up to the house, Bell almost jumps out the window with excitement when she sees Anna! Anna is amazing and I know Bell is in good hands while I am gone.
Perfect as always! Thank you so much Anna!
Anna seems great. She watched our Beagle mix and our Lab mix over Halloween weekend. She sent us an update with pics to let us know they were doing fine, which was really nice. When we picked them up they seemed just fine, although they were filthy as her yard is mostly dirt. Had to wash them 3 times to get them cleaned up! I would recommend her to anyone!

Anna was absolutely awesome! You feel very confident leaving your dog in her capable hands. She sends pictures and keeps you updated. She even gave my dog a bath before I picked her up, which was totally unexpected. Highly recommended!
She was terrific! Sweet, kind , and caring...loved my pup! Sent me photos 2-3times a day. I think my dog misses her!
Anna is just outstanding My boxer Rachel gets so excited when we pull up to Anna's place. My schedule is crazy and Anna has been super accommodating and has helped with doing pick ups and drop offs. Rachel comes back exhausted from playing and playing while we are away. Anna sends us pictures of them playing and I've never had a single worry while Rachel is there.

Perfect as usual! thank you so much!
Anna was awesome! My two little pugs had a great time and were very well taken care of:) Would definitely recommend!
Anna was great! She has a whole doggie daycare setup. She was very flexible on pick up and drop off and made sure our Ninja had everything he needed. Ninja had a great time with her. He is a diabetic and Anna was able to feed him on schedule and administer his insulin shots. She gave us updates and pictures while we were away. A+++! Thanks, Anna!

Thank you! Everything perfect!
Anna - THANK YOU! We were very nervous about letting Hopper go somewhere new. He usually goes to Pompano Pet Lodge. I have nothing but good things to report. Anna was easy to get a hold of. She was flexible with drop off due to severe rain on drop off day. She even let me stop in early to drop Hopper's crate off first. She knows her dog. Hopper is a bit of a handful and I received pictures of him playing his favorite water games with the hose and other "happy face" photos from Anna while we were gone. She answered all of my texts very promptly. Hopper was all packed up and ready to go when I picked him up - very organized! She may be young - but she has the energy to keep up with Hopper and did a great job with the communication. She is also very polite & friendly - easy to work with. He came home with out a scratch and seemed very calm about the whole thing. I would highly recommend Anna! THANK YOU!

We are repeat customers and once again, Anna was a great host for Bell! I don't think Bell wanted to leave! She has a great time playing with Anna's pups and running around her yard. It is a relief knowing we have nothing to worry about while out of town. Thanks Anna!

This was our first experience with
leaving our girl Max with someone other than family little did we know it was going to be just like leaving her with family! She was so well taken care of. Anna sent us daily pictures of her enjoying her "vacay" and daily updates. She truly loves animals and gives them the same care and love that you would.After the first message I was so relieved and knew that Max was in a great home.I know will be using her again and again. I highly recommend her as a sitter, you can go and not be worried about your "family member" We actually gave her the title of Max's Stepmother :). Thank you so much Anna!

It was the best experience that we and our 4 paw children experienced. Anna we want to thank you for the convenience of picking and dropping off the boys. You went out of your way to make us feel comfortable. The Gonzalez family.
We absolutely fell in love with Anna. She is the sweetest person. We loved that she was so at ease with dogs of all sizes and ages. Anna also sent us amazing pictures of Riley playing each day, and always answered our questions.
Anna is super sweet, flexible, and always available in a pinch. I love how her house has many different areas to separate the dogs, very dog friendly, and our pup always seems to have a great time. 2 thumbs up!
Perfect! Thank you very much for waiting because of my flight's delay, and for sending me pictures! it seems that he had a lot of fun!
Anna is wonderful and very accommodating! Best of all, and most importantly, it was very clear that Captain LOVED her!
Anna was a fantastic host for Bell! She was able to take our reservation on short notice and very professionally introduced her dogs one at a time to Bell. I know Bell had a great time while we were away. We were very lucky to find Anna!
Anna was great with Gunther & Elway! She sent us several pictures throughout the week she had them! :) They both had a great time!
OMG! Anna is the perfect fit for a dog sitter...she has a great set-up at her house and I know that my sneaky, quiet little dog, Ginger cannot escape like she does occasionally with us. Anna is a very sweet woman and it's all about the doggies with her. I will be booking with her again and again for when we go on a vacation or are remodeling our house. If the rating system went to 10 stars I would have put that.

Would definitely recommend! Very accommodating and reliable.
I was searching for someone to watch my baby while I travel out of the country for 3 weeks. I have met with and interviewed about 5-6 other dog sitters before deciding on Anna. She was extremely friendly, warm, and kind with my dog and I. She is very knowledgeable about dogs, and knows how to handle and interact with them. She introduced her dogs one at a time, keeping a handle on them at all times. She has a nice size house, with a big outdoor space for the dogs to play. She does accept numerous dogs into her home at one time, so if you are not ok with your dog being with multiple dogs, you will need to speak with her. She is very accommodating and will listen to your requests and any behavioral issues your dog has.
I felt very comfortable knowing that while I was gone that my dog Theo would be in good hands. She kept me updated with photos and emails throughout his stay. I would deffinelty use Anna again. Thank you.

Anna was great!!! I believe Cory had to much fun and had a sad puppy face when it was time to come back to Alabama. Great convenience of allowing me to pick up Cory during the day and bring him back later. I would definitely recommend.
Anna M. Was sweet and very welcoming from the moment she met us. After the meet and greet we knew this was the best fit for Cassie (we had visited various local pet boarding facilities before making our decision). Anna took great care of Cassie, didnt mind her size or special needs at all and was very diligent sending us emails and pictures during our vacation. We felt at ease knowing Cassie was in good hands and we would highly recommend Anna to all pet parents out there :) Cassie will definitely be a repeat customer.

Anna was great! She had other dogs in the home and made sure to introduce them one by one. Taina was a happy camper during her stay with Anna!
I was very impressed with Anna during our meet and greet. She has 3 dogs of her own and introduced them one at a time in the front yard to my shy German Shepherd. In spite of Anna's young years, she is mature and completely devoted to taking care of the dogs. She has built up a clientele on another site. She returned my texts immediately and kept in touch during Kenzie's stay. The backyard is safely fenced and has great grass. The house is comfortably set up for the dogs with covered couches. Anna even took Kenzie for a walk. Kenzie has separation issues and was happy to see me, but was in fine shape.
