About Paula

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Joined DogVacay 2012.

Rowdy, our super-friendly male chocolate lab, loves to have playmates over to visit. We welcome your furry babies for daily play-dates and extended periods. If you would like to drop them off for a couple of hours, a few days or even when you have to be away for an extended period of time, we will do our best to accommodate your beloved pets. Also if your are planning on visiting NOLA and are bringing your pet, please check with us as well.

Our cozy art-deco cottage is located in a pet-friendly neighborhood, within 2 blocks of the Mississippi River levee. We routinely take several walks per day. Our home offers a doggie-door with access to our large secured fenced in yard. This allows our furry guests to come and go at their whim. They tend to romp, wrestle and play in our back yard oasis filled with lots of greenery. On those doggie-day afternoons you will find us lounging around under our covered patio or sunning out by our large towering oaks.

I am home the majority of the time, if I happen to run off, its usually for no more than 2-3 hours. During your travels, I will send daily updates and several candid shots of your pups day-to-day activities. Hopefully having this peace of mind will allow you to be at ease and comfortable to enjoy your vacay or business travel as well.

We truly love sharing our home with our furry paw-some guests. My hope is to provide them the next best thing to being at their home. If you are considering having your pups stay with us, please send a message to set up a meet-n-greet. Thanks in advance for the opportunity and trust you are giving us, I look forward to meeting you.

All you need is LOVE......and a DOG"

We would love to have a house full of dogs but our guest limit is only 3 over-night guest dogs. Be sure to plan ahead to save the dates you need. I recommend booking in advance especially during the holiday weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: ALL guests must be up to date on vaccinations, flea protection and spayed or neutered if over 1 year old. Bring shot records at meet-n-greet. In order to know your dogs needs, I'll have you complete a meet-n-greet or vacay discussion form.

***My rates for overnight boarding are $35 per 24 hour stays. I realize with flight times you may need an extra early morning drop-off or a very late evening pick-up. In those cases please plan to book another nights stay. Day Care Rates may apply for pick-up after 7pm. I will remain as flexible as possible.

Paula is a most loving and caring person. I totally trust her to keep my Manuel. Her loves her too! It is important that I have peace of mind when traveling and with Paula I don't have to worry that he will be safe and well looked after.

What a perfect choice for our first time dog boarding experience! Paula was quick to respond to our questions and put us at ease. Her home is so dog friendly with a beautiful fenced-in backyard paradise for the dogs to "chill out". She kept us up to date with daily pics of Boccie on walks, playing with others and sleeping. She and her sweet brown lab Rowdy made this visit to New Orleans absolutely the best! We look forward to doggie vacay next year!
When we left Baco with Paula, it was our first time leaving him with anyone other than my parents. Paula was so great! She showed me around the house where Baco would stay for a few hours and sent us pictures of him playing with another dog. It looked like he had a fun time, and we were happy knowing that. We'll definitely call Paula when we need a sitter.
Paula was so awesome! This was my first time using DogVacay and I was not disappointed! She sent me several updates and pictures of my dog and was so great with him! I think he actually misses her and Rowdy now that he's home with me! An excellent experience all around and I will definitely be a returning customer!
