About Heidi

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Our Home! Where we treat your dog like our dog! We would love to have your pup as our guest. Each night your dog stays with us they will get everything their heart desires. I would love to collaborate with you to make your pups stay as homey as possible for them. I offer multiple potty breaks, walks in the neighborhood/around the lake, tons of attention, treats if you allow & the option for them to sleep wherever they like. They will be one of our family while you're away!!!

I started this business because I have a little girl that just couldn't handle it if I went away. I tried everything that was available! Boarding services....but just couldn't stand to have my dog locked in a kennel all day and night while I was away on vacation. I tried free farm boarding....sounds great but my dog was so scared because she wasn't used to being outside with only dogs. Next, I left her with friends and they tried so hard...but they just didn't understand. She is my spoiled little girl and needed more attention than just a "dog". She has certain things she likes, quirks, and even fears, I felt so guilty and missed my pup so much. I figured that there must be many more families out there that felt the same way I do!
I want to help! This is my passion in life!

I have been a dog owner for 22 years and have 5 years experience working with local rescue organizations; volunteering and fostering dogs. I have worked with all types of breeds and medical conditions such as: seizures, recent surgeries, separation anxiety, leash training, allergies, senior issues, and just basic manners training needs.

Your dog's day will look like this: Every morning they will receive a walk. During the day if I'm away and have to leave for to work; they will still receive 2 potty breaks/play time sessions about 25 minutes each. In the evenings another walk (pending their activity needs) and then just chill around the house, play in the yard, supervise me cooking aka wait for something to hit the floor while dinner is prepared, some snuggling of course, TV time then bed.

I want to make sure I continue to follow your rules and routines while your dog stays with us. So... I may ask a lot of questions to get to know both you and them before your dogs stay. Dogs may sleep where ever they like and may have free roam of part of the house once prove trust worthy. I do offer various sized kennels here if your dog is crate trained; so you don't have to bring them over with you if you like.

Anything else you need let me know. I offer a variety of services to meet your dogs needs. I am a huge dog lover and would love to have the opportunity to care for your dog/baby while you are away.

This is the second time that we’ve booked a stay with Heidi C. for our basset Charlie, this time for nearly an entire week, and the experience all-around was no less exceptional than before. She’s just terrific with Charlie, and provided a safe environment where he was treated almost like a part of her own family. She regularly sent us periodic pics with updates via text messaging, and I swear from those pics we wondered if he’d want to come home at the end of his stay. Charlie spent most of the first five years of his life in a 10’ x 10’ kennel. The peace of mind of knowing that he’s safe and cared for when we travel, without having to leave him in a kennel, is priceless. Thanks again, Heidi!

Heidi watched my doggie this past weekend and I do believe we have definitely found a match! My Jack got along great and was very happy during his time there. Heidi was awesome about sending me text and picture updates throughout his stay. I can tell that Heidi and her husband really love dogs and treated my dog the same way I would treat him at home. I will definitely be booking her services again the next time we travel.

The other reviews about Heidi are spot on. We have an 11 yr old basset, Charlie, and we simply couldn’t have had a better experience with the entire process, from booking with her through dogvacay.com, to picking him up at the end of his stay. Her response to our reservation request was literally almost instantaneous. She asked us about Charlie’s dietary needs, meds, walks, individual traits and habits, etc. At the meet and greet, she introduced her two labs, showed us where he would be staying, and went over We took him over for the meet and greet and her labs were just great with him. She texted pics to us, and my wife remarked that he looked so happy we should worry that he may not want to come home. We will try to book with Heidi first anytime that we’re in need of a place for Charlie while we’re away.

I have a giant schnauzer and Heidi did awesome with him! It helps that she has 2 labs for him to play with. Heidi did an awesome job taking him on walks and giving him plenty of excercize. She also kept me updated on him through out my vacation
Heidi was great! My puppy loved her and she made him feel at home. She even baked puppy snacks, which was extremely thoughtful!
This was our first time booking with dog vacay and I could not have asked for a better experience. We found Heidi's page and were immediately interested in booking with her due to her love for big dogs and the fact that she had 2 big dogs of her own. Our dogs are bigger so they can be a handful. Heidi immediately responded to my messages and took the time to ask questions about my dogs. From the initial messages, I already felt at ease. Dropping the dogs off was a breeze and Heidi took the time to show me where my fur babies would be staying. We boarded our dogs with her for 6 nights and received pictures and updates daily! You can tell Heidi is a dog lover which made me feel comfortable during my whole trip. She even made them ice treats when it was hot out and homemade dog treats to bring home! We will definitely use Heidi again for any boarding that we need to do and we couldn't have asked for a better experience with her! Thank you Heidi for loving on our babies!
