About patricia

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog lover. I have a wonderful dog that I rescued 14 years ago and she is with me all the time. She likes other dogs, but she would need to approve any dog coming to stay at our house. We moved to Phoenix from Somerville, Massachusetts three plus years ago. I am an acupuncturist trained in human and animal acupuncture. There is a doggie door, blocked in back yard for play and the front yard has a fence too. Very safe and secure. I am extremely responsible and come with references. I often dog sit for my friend's dogs

We've boarded our cavalier with Patricia three times and we have full confidence in her. We were in a rush to find a dog sitter for several out of town trips planned for this past summer and we are thrilled we found Patricia. Our pup gets very excited when we arrive and a little sad when it's time to go home. I know that he is being well cared for when we are out of town and I have no worries. Patricia takes care to ensure it is a good match between your dog and her dog and her home, which I appreciate. I'm very thankful we've found Patricia.

Patricia was/is an absolute joy to work with. She is extremely attentive and loving to those left in her care. This was the 2nd time we've left our dog with anyone but family. Patricia adjusted her schedule to fit ours, kept us updated many times daily with pictures of Charlie our cherished "son". We are soooo very pleased with Patricia as our sitter and would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about leaving their pet or pets with a sitter. We will certainly call upon Patricia anytime we are in need of her services again!!!

Patricia was absolutely wonderful! I'm not sure my girls even missed me. Haha. She sends text and picture updates and promptly answers texts you may send. Her home is warm and inviting, and most importantly to me, calm and peaceful. My dogs are 13 and 10 and definitely feel more comfortable in more of a lazy type environment. I could tell shetook care of them as if they were her own. I've already booked another stay with her.

Patricia was just the right person for our first time experience with a pet sitter. She was warm and welcoming to Maggie and very flexible on drop off and pick up. Patricia sent photos of Maggie daily and kept us up to date. I would highly recommend Patricia again.

Terrific experience and good lessons learned on separation strategies for next time.

Lovely place! She updated us with photos and we kept in contact for the majority of the trip. Very knowledgable with pets :)
Ripley loved her stay. Patricia was kind, friendly and flexible - able to make time to meet before boarding, to ensure her pup and mine got along.
I have just moved to the area and have used Dogvacay for a long time now in a different state. After several meet and greets I finally met Patricia and could go on my trip and not worry. Patricia is a great host and took great care of my two babies. I think they are actually missing her and Frankie. She has a special bond with animals, when we went for a meet and greet my little Jackson started following her around and I knew this was the right place. I like how she only takes one family at a time that is very important to me. I would recommend her most definately 5 stars from my babies! The fact that she wants her dog to be okay with your dog is another great plus that I appreciate.

One day into my dog's stay I received a call from Patricia on Christmas evening saying she wanting my dog out of her house immediately because he had urinated on her nice furniture. I was repeatedly told how nice her furniture was. I was 1800 miles away and had to frantically make arrangements for him to be picked up as she could not tolerate him another night. I found this very surprising since the updates until this phone call were positive with no indications of any issues. I had my dog out of her house within an ho thanks to a wonderful friend who could pick him upurThe person who picked him up reported to me that my dog seemed very happy to leave the house and get away from the other two dogs that were being hosted at the time. . He is now in another homfor the remainder ofmy vacationy e doing wonderfully with no accidents to report .It appears that my dog may have some separation anxiety issues and needs to be the only dog around but I feel this host should have had some solutions to deal with issues such as this instead of immediately wanting him gone. I will not be using this host again. .

Patricia was awesome! She really loves and understands dogs and you will not regret leaving your dog with her. Highly recommended!
I would highly recommend Patricia. She made us feel very comfortable leaving our dogs with her and Frankie, providing several updates during our dogs stay. Both of our dogs came home happy and tired.
My dog, Ellie a mini dachshund, obviously was quite happy with Patricia. When I picked Ellie up and we were leaving in my car, Ellie was staring back at Patricia's house and not paying attention to me.
Our dog stayed with Patricia for a weekend and had a great time! The location is good and there is a great back yard with lots of space for pets. Patricia was wonderful with our old dog and he seemed very pleased with her as well! We will book with Patricia again!

My dogs had a wonderful time spending two days with Patricia. Sometimes my Standard Poodle can be a bit aloof with strangers, but he warmed up quickly in her home and lived chasing birds in her backyard. I will definitely use Patricia in the future for vacations.

My dogs' stay with Patricia was great! I really appreciate the care she took with the meet n greet - meeting outside for a short walk with her dog to allow them all to get acquainted before going into the home. One of my pups can be a little sketchy and bark-y with strangers (which got him rejected from a traditional boarding facility). But Patricia made the transition seamless and peaceful. Patricia herself was warm and welcoming and provided updates while we were gone. I never doubted for a moment that my sweeties were being well loved and cared for. My first experience with DogVacay made me a believer! I'm so glad we were rejected from that "other" boarder. Thanks again, Patricia!

Our dogs had a wonderful stay at Patricia and Frankie's house. We felt at ease leaving our pups in Patricia's care, and they came home relaxed and tired after a fun stay. Frankie is a sweet girl, and she was very nice to let our dogs share her home for a night as well. We will surely contact Patricia again in the future. She's a amazing host - communicative, friendly, and so great with dogs!

I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs with Patricia and I could tell my dogs really enjoyed their stay with her. She kept us posted with text messaging and pictures. Plus she made friends with my Chihuahua - a very tricky thing to do:) Highly recommend her!

Patricia was so kind, helpful, and thoughtful in making arrangements for us to leave Albie and Pippa with a sitter for the first time! She really cares about animals, and took excellent care of them - they loved staying with her!
