About Vanessa

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Loving dog owner recently lost her amazing 14 year old Vizsla. I traveled a lot and found it difficult to find loving person to care for my sweet girl like I did and thought others must have the same issue. I am willing to give your fur babies attention and a safe place to hang while you are away. My yard is safe, fenced and pet friendly. I have many toys including a "Chuck-it" if they don't bring their favorites. My home is clean as is my backyard but your pups are welcome anywhere. I admit to letting my pup on the furniture and will do my best to abide your rule not to. Pup hugs are no extra charge! (Note: I am on this site for the love of dogs rather than a business. I want to give each client and their fur babies my full attention. Once I accept boarding in my home, your pup (s) will be the only one (s) in my home. Holiday boarding will have small upcharge.)

We had an awesome experience with Vanessa taking care of our dog, Ace, for a few days. We received updates with pictures and stories showing how well Ace was adjusting, which made us feel comfortable he was in good hands while we were away. Our ultimate indicator of the great care Ace received while staying with Vanessa was how relaxed and tired he was in the car after we picked him up. We know he is excited for another dog vacay with Vanessa!

We thought Vanessa's enthusiasm and attention to providing Mia with good care was excellent. Obviously she has an affinity for dogs and likes to have them around. She takes pleasure in treating them well and playing with them in her backyard. It was of great relief to be out of the country and know that our dog was well taken care of.

Vanessa even took the time to share a variety of photo's of Mia playing, eating and sleeping with us via text. This demonstrates a real commitment to our pet and DogVacay.

I thought Vanessa was great she took excellent care of our dog and will be using her again
Vanessa was a wonderful host to my two dogs. They took immediately to her during the meet and greet. She is very accommodating to their needs and any concerns you have. She has an amazing backyard that my curious dogs just loved. I will definitely be using Vanessa again.

Vanessa was great. We came home to happy puppies. We have a senior dog that takes daily medication knowing that Luna was being taken care of along with our other dog. We had a great time at our family wedding. Vanessa sent us texts along with pictures that showed us they were acting normal, like begging in the kitchen. Which means they were comfortable with her. If we need overnight care again, we would ask her. Thanks Vanessa!!!

Vanessa was great! She took care of our dog as though it was her own. She followed our instructions perfectly. She texted us updates and pix and we felt Stella was in good hands! We will definitely use her again.
Vanessa not only handled caring for our boy, Harvey, but also maintained complete composure and professionalism when dealing with my wife, whom was mortified leaving Harvey for one night. My wife texted and FaceTimed almost constantly and Vanessa obliged, understanding the fear and anxiety that my wife was going through. She did not stop there, Vanessa also took great care of Harvey, by reading to gain knowledge on his needs, his fears, and his anxieties too. Harvey is a rescue and has a lot of work ahead of him, but we will get there, especially with people like Vanessa willing to help us!!! A million THANKS Vanessa!!

We had an awesome experience. Vanessa was extremely helpful and flexible, and went over and above anything that was expected. Her love of dogs is obvious and we were confident she'd take extremely good care of our furry babies. We weren't disappointed!

Vanessa T. was extremely reliable throughout the entire experience. She was proactive and thoughtful. Nala and Whiskey loved her beautiful backyard where they had the freedom to run around and chase squirrels. Vanessa gave updates throughout the day keeping us well informed. This was reassuring and allowed us to freely enjoy our vacation knowing our pups were well taken care of and enjoying themselves as well. We highly recommend Vanessa T. and would surely use her again.

Sincerely,

Jeff R.
