About Tami

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let me provide the "Home Away From Home Doggie Experience!"

When I started with DogVacay, Ollie was the resident doggie babysitter until he passed away unexpectedly in the summer of 2014 after raising 2 Saint Bernards for many years.

Charlie was found as a stray on the street by PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society) and was adopted in September 2014. Charlie loves his fenced in yard, doggie door and his babysitting duties.

He has an electronic doggie door and extra collars for others to enjoy the fenced back yard to play in. I will love your "furry family members" while you go away on vacations, weekend get-aways, and potty breaks while you are working late as if they were mine own.

24/7 care on the days that I am available since I work from home most of the week.

I am conveniently located off Route 13 after the Route 40/Route 13 split, past the WAWA.

I require a "Meet and Greet" prior to any reservation being accepted, just to assure that the dogs are comfortable with each other.

Please make sure your dogs are vaccinated, neutered/spayed and up-to date with their shots.

***Ask about the discounted rate if you reserve 8 consecutively nights or longer.

****Please note there will be an additional fee of $15 per dog, per day for any dog larger than 35 lbs., puppies under 10 months old, non-housebroken dogs, dogs that require special medical treatment and/or dogs that are advanced age.

*****Pick up after 7pm, will accure an additional charge.

Everything was great. Tami was very professional and her house was very suitably laid out for having dogs over. Henna loved her stay, and we will definitely be back.
Tami was a wonderful host to Poco. She sent us videos throughout the weekend so we could track how she was doing. If you are looking for someone that will treat your pet as you do, give her a call.
I recently had Tami take care of my dog Casey. Casey is a older dog and has a hard time with stairs. I told Tami about my concerns and she make sure Casey was well taken care of. Casey did well and had good care. I would use Tami again. Terri
Everything was great from start to finsh along with daily pictures of cinnamon and texts on how she was doing. We will definitely be back on our next vacation real soon. .thanks a bunch miss tami...loved it there. ..
Thanks again! Our pups were well taken care of and happy.
Tami and Charlie (resident pup) were great. Very friendly and welcoming. Charlie made my guy a little tense the first day but that's just social dynamics. Tami made me and my little dude feel comfortable and on day two of little mans stay he had made a few friends. Killer puppy accommodations and a an awesome host
Chase had a wonderful experience with Tami. She took excellent care of him and kept us updated throughout our vacation. Her home and yard were ideal and Chase loved her dog Charlie.
Tucker was very well taken care of, and enjoyed seeing some dog buddies he'd met at another host's home. Tami was very accommodating of my desired drop off and pick up times.
As usual Rocco had a great time at Tami's home. He does well with the other little guys there, which is very good for him! Also, Tami was super accommodating when we had a mix up with our dates. Thank you Tami! Great to know that Rocco is having as a great time as we arenter when we are away!
Tami was a good host and Roxy had a great time!
Highly recommend Tami! The meet-up visit with her and her husband went very well, and my intuition read highly positive. This was our pup's first time away from home, and Tami even sent us a video of her playing. She was exhausted when she returned home, and we knew she had a great time. We will definitely book Tami again!
Tami took wonderful care of our dogs! I will definitely feel completely secure leaving them with her again in the future.
This was our first experience with Khloe being away from home. Tami' s home was so inviting and her dog Charlie welcomed Khloe right in. Tami sent me a photo of Khloe sleeping like a baby. Khloe had space to run and play just like at home. I would use Tami as my sitter again. Thank you Dogvacay for the great service you offer.
Couldn't ask for a better place for my lainey, the place is big enough for her to be active and the easy access to outside is really ideal, not to mention how loving Tami is.
Added perk she sent me pictures of my baby through the weekend. I felt so at ease. Highly recommend her.
Our Owen had a great time at Tami's and is now lounging around at home since he had so much fun playing! I loved that Tami's house has a doggy door so Owen, Charlie, and friends can run in and out and play, and Tami was great about giving us text updates every so often so we knew our buddy was having a great time.
Schatze was very happy and so are we!
Our dog Rufus had a great time staying with Tami for the first time last month. Tami was very nice and we felt very comfortable our dog was in great hands. The doggie door in her house is awesome. She also sent us texts and a video of Rufus playing in the back yard with his new friends. We will definitely be using her as a sitter for the future.
Tami and her husband were very nice and accommodating. From the first meeting, I knew Cooper would be in capable and caring hands. From the automatic doggie door to the tons of toys, Cooper had a blast. We will definitely use Tami again.
First time using dog vacation.com and I loved it! I was referred to the website by a friend, and at the beginning I thought "No way! I can't leave my dog with a stranger!" But Tami made us fill comfortable at the meet n greet and took very good care of my dear Cooper. She kept us updated during the 2 weeks we went away. I had peace of mind during my trip because I knew Cooper and his new friends were having fun. I'm definitely booking with her again!
Our dog Jammy had a great time staying with Tami while we were out of town. We loved the photo updates, and would definitely book with Tami again!
Tami, was very understanding about my last minute family emergency. She gave me a sense of peace knowing that Angel was being well taken care for with the pictures and videos. I was glad to see that Charlie and Angel became such good friends.
Tami continues to do a great job watching my dog Gage. She sends me updates on his stay and gives him plenty of playtime and attention while he is with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great place for their pup to stay!
Honey Bun just loves both Sarah and Matt. They take real good care of her, especially since she is blind. Honey Bun feels extremely comfortable there and loves her walks!
Tami was wonderful with our Layla. We were away for 2 weeks and we felt very comfortable from our first meet & greet. Tami sent photos & videos nearly ever day. She would give us updates about how Layla was doing. & getting along. She normally does not do well with new people but she was comfortable at Tami'a house very quickly. We already are reserved for our next getaway.
We were very nervous about leaving Maggie, our 10-month-old lab. It was her fist time time away from us since we rescued her at 8 weeks of age. Tami was very reassuring and sent daily pics to us of Maggie playing with other dogs, having a treat, etc. Tami knew how nervous we were and was willing to text as well as the sending the photos, telling us how Maggie was adjusting. She was very flexible with drop off and pick up times. I especially liked that she required a meeting prior to accepting a reservation to be sure our pet would be a good fit with her Ollie and her home. I think DogVacay is a wonderful idea and it certainly made us feel much better to know Maggie was in a loving, comfortable home with a nice fenced in yard than in a noisy, barren kennel.
How lucky I was to find Tami! I had brought Charley with me from our home in Florida intending to take him with me on a weeklong trip to Michigan. When our plans changed, I turned to Dogvacay for a sitter. The one I had used previously was booked as was one that I had interviewed. However the latter recommended Tami. She did a nice job of keeping Charley's allergies in check and he had a great time with her dog, Oliver, and guest, Layla.
The fenced in yard and doggy door was definitely a plus. Tami is good with the dogs and cooperative in working with their human parents. I would definitely use her again.
Tami and Ollie were awesome! My dog Oreo is a 7 month old puppy and I was a little scared to leave him in a strange place without me for a whole night. But after meeting Tami and Ollie they put me at ease right away. Tami sent me a picture of him playing in the yard with some if his new friends the next day which made me very happy to see! Tami also have us some feedback and tips we could use at home to better train him! We will definitely be going back to Tami real soon and also recommend her highly!
Tami was fantastic, Brandy felt at home almost immediately. The home is roomy and the yard great. I especially like the automatic doggie door. Brandy had it mastered in no time. He came home exhausted from playing with Oliver and his other buddies. I highly recommend Tami and Oliver, they were great hosts!
This was our first time using Dogvacay for a week, as well as the first time our puppy (8 mos) would be staying with anyone but family. Needless to say I was a little anxious (but not my Summer), Tami and her dog Ollie couldn't have been more welcoming and warm. Tami was very accommodating and obviously is a dog lover. Summer definitely got the attention and care she needed. They were kind and caring and reported into us during the week. We definitely recommend them for your dog sitting needs as well.
This was Zoee's first time with Ollie and Tami and I felt very comfortable leaving her with them. She was greeted by two other guests besides Ollie and she took to them very well. Tami is very easy going and enjoys her furry guests ....... NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT!!! I look forward to having Zoee stay with them again.
Romie seemed happy and Tammi did a great job. She sent pictures to keep me updated which was nice.
Tami was wonderful! Really helped us out with our "special needs" 15 year old pug and Boston. Felt very comfortable leaving my babies in her home. Very helpful with our wacky scheduling and the foto texts were nice! Thank you so much!
Thi s time Bodhi was more comfortable staying with Tami. Tami kept me informed about his activities.I was at ease knowing that he is being taken care of. Darshana
Tami was great. My husband and I have unpredictable schedules and Tami was more than accommodating for us. She sent us pictures of our little boy while we were away, putting our minds at ease. We will be using Tami again for future reservations!
Tami took great care of our dog while we went away for the weekend. The daily pictures and text messages of our dog in the comforts of her home made us feel at ease while we were away. Tami even went the extra step and gave me some good tips about socializing and behavioral tips for my furry child. I would definitely recommend and request Tami again for dog sitter services!

Thanks Again,
Angel & Jazz
Tami and her husband were great with my two dogs. I would take my dogs back to them in a heartbeat. Tami was able to take my dogs last minute which was great. Tami was able to give my dog her oral medicine without any problems. They sent me a picture of my dogs and let me know how they were doing. My one dog was having issues regarding peeing on the floor and they were very nice about that and let me know that it did not smell right. I can't say enough of how great Tami and her husband were with my dogs. You won't be disappointed leaving your furry children with Tami.
Finding Tami to host our dog during the holidays was a blessing. She was accomodating with our schedule and helped make me and my husband's Christmas anniversary trip a success. Tami has a very nice home, a nice dog, and great backyard where they both played. She is attentive to ensuring your dog follows the same rules there - that they do at home...while still allowing them to feel like they are on 'vacation'. She sent pics and kept me informed. She's a great host, communicates effeciently and I'm sure will take great care of your little (or big one) just as well as she did our Coty.
Tami was wonderful! She made our first time leaving our dog with a "stranger" so easy and comfortable. Texting us updates and sending a picture was great! We would highly recommend!!
I am really glad that we found Tami on this site. After the initial meeting, I knew right away that I would feel comfortable leaving Ella with Tami (and Ollie). Since I could not receive text messages while I was away, Tami would e-mail me every day with pictures and updates. I honestly could not have been happier with this experience. We will definitely be contacting Tami in the future.
Tami did an excellent job watching my dog while I was away. She followed all of my instructions, and provided my dog with a home atmosphere with ample space to play and be at ease. Tami sent pictures of my dog and gave me plenty of feedback from his stay. I would definitely recommend Tami to anyone who is looking for a sitter and have already made future bookings with her!
I was worried about leaving Bodhi for four days. Tami assured me she will take good care of him which she did Everyday pictures she sent of Bodhi lessened my anxiety.He was happy to see me.Tami took good care of him.I am pleased with his stay with Tami. I will leave Bodhi with her next time.
Tami is fabulous!! Very flexible, great with the pup and generally a wonderful woman. She texted us photos of Ace which was supercool. We will definitely be using her services again.
We couldn't be happier. We know Schatze is beimg well taken care of with Tami and DogVacay.
Tami was a great host for our dog. She sent us daily photos and clearly Buster was happy and enjoying himself!
Tami is great! She took wonderful care of our doggie Gizmo and alleviated any worry by sending daily pictures and showing us how Gizmo was doing. Most importantly, we could tell Gizmo had a wonderful time! Although she was glad to be back at home, she moped around for a few days and missed her time with Tami and Ollie. Thanks so much!
Tami was excellent. She accommodated Cooper in the last moment and we could go on our little trip. I would definitely take Cooper back to her in future since she has been really good in taking care of him and I could see that he was very comfortable in her house. Thanks Tami....
Tami was great! Her house was the perfect place for my dog to stay with lots of space to run around and easy access to a fenced in back yard! She sent cute pictures to me while I was away and Norman seemed to have a great time! Thanks Tami!
Tami was an excellent host for my dogs. They loved their time there and Tami took great care of them.
