About Paola

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have cared for dogs my whole life, they are a part of my family. And I would love to treat yours as part of my family too! My house is very dog-friendly as it includes a doggie door and a fenced yard. Dogs are allowed on my furniture and bed so they will be comfy anywhere. I am constantly aware of their safety, well-being, and comfort level. You can count on me to take care of your dog while you're away!

**PLEASE NOTE: I only watch small dogs at my house since I have two small Shih Tzus at home. I can watch or walk any size dog at your house though. Thank you**

Paola was just awesome. When we had our preliminary talk before I booked a Vacay, she was super transparent, sweet and willing to accommodate for my pup. My pup loved playing with her dogs. Paola sent me a picture update during the vacay, which was really nice. When my pup was getting picked up, Paola took the time to give an update on my dog's day and overall, it was a great experience. I would definitely book her again. Thank you!

Every time I drop off my Shiba Inu at Paola's I know that he will be safe and well taken care of... and on top of that he has great company (her two dogs, Logan and Pippa)! Will continue to book with Paola :)
I have used Paola several times and will continue to book with her in the future. She has a wonderful home that is safe and dog friendly. She even has a little dog door that goes into her well fenced backyard. Unfortunately, my Shiba Inu is too timid to go through it! Haha... Paola takes good care of my Shiba and I am so thankful to have discovered her!

My Shiba Inu stayed with Paola and he was well taken care of and safe. He also had a great time with her two sweet dogs Pippa and Logan! :)
Love Paola.. and Kovu does too! :)
Paola has watched my Shiba Inu, Kovu, several times and he always has a great time! :)
My Shiba Inu, Kovu has stayed with Paola several times and loves her and her two dogs! Wonderful and welcoming home.
Paola took great care of Kovu! Kovu enjoys going over to play with Pippa and Logan!
Great stay once again with Paola! Pippa and Logan are the sweetest!
Once again another GREAT experience with Paola. Kovu was well taken care of while I was away for the weekend.
Paola was great from the moment I made the reservation until the moment I picked my dog up. She was quick to respond to me and put me at ease considering this was my first time leaving my dog with anyone outside of family. She sent text updates daily and took very good care of my baby! Would recommend and use her services again.

Paola was so great! I was nervous leaving my 6 month old puppy for the weekend, but Paola made me feel very comfortable. We had a meet and greet before the stay. I got to see her place and meet her fur babies. I got to see that my Rex was excited and comfortable there. During his stay with Paola, she sent me photos and updates about him which really put me at ease. Overall Rex was well taken care of and enjoyed his stay. We will definitely use Paola again when needed!

Paola was great. I needed a sitter for a few hours and was a last min reservation.
Paola was quick and friendly from the first time I messaged her to the last time when I came to pick up my pup! She updated with through text and pictures of Fluffy everyday. She was extremely patient with feeding him (and I know this because when I picked up Fluffy he was heavier)!! I would board him again!!

I have used Paola several times now (over 6x) within the last couple months as I travel quite often for work. I have a 1 and a half year old male Shiba Inu named Kovu. I felt compelled to write another review after my most recent experience with Paola. I was able to catch an earlier flight back home and wanted to pick up my little guy that night instead of the next morning as we had originally planned. I texted Paola when I landed and she responded promptly letting me know it was okay. I went to pick up Kovu and what she said to me stunned me (in a good way!). She told me that she would try to refund me the last night via the DogVaycay website. I was not expecting a refund at all since I made the decision to pick up Kovu early. To me, that spoke volume about Paola's integrity. It told me that she was not just in it for the money but genuinely cared about me and my dog. I greatly appreciate Paola for the care she takes in watching Kovu and her genuine love for dogs! Such a sweet person! Thank you Paola and I will continue to rebook with you!

We had a great first experience with DogVacay and our sitter, Paola. She suggested a meet and greet at her house so we could see where our dogs would be staying and so we could socialize our pets. Things went great and we locked her in as our sitter. The dogs actual stay at her house went great. She was very good about keeping us updated on our dogs' status via text, including pictures. Upon our return she accommodated our shifting schedule, enabling us to easily pick up our dogs. The dogs were in great spirits and looked to be very well cared for in our absence. We would definitely use Paola's services again and highly recommend her.

My 1 yr and 4 mo old Shiba Inu stayed with Paola for two days and one night. I was very anxious at first as Kovu has never been boarded or stayed with strangers. He also is not normally around other dogs for an extended period of time and is shy.

Paola was very friendly with Kovu and he surprisingly warmed up to her quick - by pick up she was able to hook his leash on his harness! This is a big win as Kovu normally doesn't let others touch him.

Most importantly... 1) Kovu was well taken care of by Paola, 2) Kovu got along with Paola's two dogs: Logan and Pippa (CUTIES BTW!), and 3) Kovu was safe in her home (backyard is well fenced and inside the home there is not much the dogs can get into). She kept me updated and sent pictures!

Overall, I am satisfied and will be rebooking w/Paola.

Decided to go with Paola after a Meet and Greet appointment. We were very impressed with the home-like atmosphere and the obvious caring attitude of Paola and her family. They have two small dogs and our Teddy instantly took to wrestling and running with Logan in the completely fenced in yard. They also have a doggy-door for easy access to the yard. We were gone for a week and we received regular updates with pictures that told us our puppy was happy.
We would highly recommend Paola and definitely will plan future play dates for Teddy with his new buddy Logan.

Prompt response and great communication. Gave me updates throughout the stay. Walter seemed comfortable and relaxed when I picked him up. Would recommend and use again if needed! Thanks, Paula!
