About Ember

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work from home and hang out with my 3 personal Boston Terriers everyday. I also foster for a rescue organization and have done so for 5 years, so I consider myself very experienced in dog sitting all behaviors. I am very protective of my dogs and my guest dogs, and never leave them unsupervised. We don't spend much time outside when it's hot due to the heat intolerance of the breeds I own. I can adapt to having dogs with different rules and schedules as I often have to rehabilitate rescue dogs and keep them completely on their own training, feeding, and medical schedule separate than my own spoiled dogs :). I do the same with dogs I dogsit and follow the structure you pass on to me.

I have a house in northwest Austin with a modest sized back yard with a secure privacy fence, perfect for small to medium sized dogs. I have also fenced in my front yard to increase the amount of space the pups have to play :). They never go outside unsupervised! I also have a great neighborhood for walking as there are shady sidewalks to follow and little to no traffic (although I don't take any non-personal dogs on walks in my neighborhood unless owner specifically asks me to). Your dog can have a bedroom setup for sleep time where they could sleep in a crate or dog bed if requested. Your dog could play with my dogs if you want and the dog seems like a good personality match to mine or your dog(s) could be kept separate from mine if you'd prefer; however, during busy times / holidays, I can not always accommodate dogs that wouldn't be a good fit with my personal dogs. I do require guest dogs to be spayed/neutered if they are old enough.

I also prefer to watch smaller breeds or lower-energy dogs (if it's a large breed). I don't have the yard size and my dogs don't have the energy to sufficiently wear out a larger/working breed dog.

Buster loves staying with Ember and she takes great care of him; even gave him a (much needed) bath!
No complaints! The boys had a great time.
This review is really late, but Ember was really great! My dogs can be kind of a handful and have some special issues, but she handled everything with finesse. She was very understanding when I had to keep pushing back the drop off time, too! She sent regular picture updates and I could tell the boys were happy.

Ember was amazing! She kept me updated, sent me pics, and had excellent communication. My dog was so happy she didn't even notice I was gone!
Ember was a WONDERFUL host for our 5 month old puppy, Rue. She clearly loves dogs which gave me such comfort leaving my pup in her care over the holidays. She sent regular photo and video updates as well. I would highly recommend Ember!
Ember was a fantastic host for my quirky (anxiety ridden) dog Charlie. She sent me several update texts during my trip and was very willing to help accommodate for my little guy's needs. Great host.
Jack definitely had his own vacay while we were out of town. He enjoyed his stay and I knew he was in good hands. Thanks!
It was so awesome to have our Boston, Jack stay with Ember's Bostons. I think Jack had a blast and didn't miss us. Ember sent many photos which I looked forward to and it helped me keep up with what Jack was doing. Jack will definitely be back.
Everything went very smoothly. I appreciated the updates and photos. My dogs do not appear to be the least bit stressed after their stay, which was important to me, and the main reason I tried dogvacay rather than taking them back to the kennel. I hope to leave them with Ember again in the future.

Even though it was extremely last minute and a holiday weekend, Ember was more than happy to watch my dog. We got pictures every day and she even let us know how her first night sleeping there was. I definitely trust her with my baby!
Ember is absolutely the bomb! She sends picture updates everyday and I can tell my dogs love her! She even trimmed Madison's nails without us asking (it was sorely needed!). I am a crazy dog mom and have all sorts of "requests", but she honored all of them. She is our top choice for dog sitting!

Ember was awesome, I definitely trusted her with my puppy all day while I was at work. She sent me pictures and an update about her eating since I told her that she hadn't been eating that much. Her dogs were also great playmates!
Ember was awesome! She treated Max as if he were her own dog. Our Max is a three year old golden, loves people and was given plenty of attention from Ember. She had three pups of her own and they all got along great. We will definitely use her again.

Ember was awesome! My husband was going to be out of town and we needed someone to give my dogs a potty break during the day. We met her and spent an hour just chatting and playing with my dogs (2 Boston terriers). She truly loves her dogs and treated mine like they were her own. It was reassuring to see the pictures she sent daily of them having a great time. This was the first time having a stranger in the house when we weren't there and I wouldn't hesitate to do it again with Ember.
