About Crystal

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Crystal, I love dogs! I have three beautiful dogs of my own-- Millie (Husky) , Zoe (German Shepard), and Sasha (German Shepard) they are all loving dogs! I work from home so I get to be with my pups all day (unless I have a meeting planned outside of the home) and have a big fenced in yard for the pups to play. I do have two kids 6 and 1, during the day they are at school and daycare :) Otherwise they come play with the pups along with my wonderful Husband who also helps out with our visitor pups. I do take last minute reservations and work with pups on any anxiety issues while they are away from you.

Super responsive and easy going!
Our Golden Retriever loved her stay! She was well cared for, had other dogs to play with, and we received updates and pictures! She was exhausted from all her fun, and we will definitely use Crystal again when we need Roxy to be well cared for when we are away! Thank you for your loving care

Crystal and her family were great! We appreciated the flexibility with our last minute request and she kept us updated with photos & videos throughout his stay. Highly recommend!
Crystal was very responsive to my questions and concerns prior to boarding our 11 month old puppy for the first time. She made the time to do a meet and greet and set up the transition on the drop off morning for success. She sent text and pictures each day to ease my anxiety of being away for the first time. We will definitely use Crystal again.

Very pleased with Crystal every time she takes care of Paola and Alekos!
My tablet is being finicky. If I've submitted more than one review of any single day, my apologies! Please see my longest review, it summarizes our experience with Crystal and her family caring for our dog Teddy. There is nothing I could think of that would be negative to say--this is a lovely home filled with love and that's palpable the moment you walk in the door. Crystal even left their front door open when we were on our way to pick Teddy up in the evening; porch light on in the early Dec. darkness at dinner time. If that's not welcoming and caring, I don't know what is. Thank you Crystal. I saw the pics of the new dog Sadie. I was so surprised! Congratulations on you new addition. Hope to meet her sometime sooner than later.

PS...Morgan will be having knee surgery one knee at a time to correct the same problem her sister, the skater had. Perhaps this will allow her to be active, happy and give her the ability to pursue her dreams in spite of the other issues. We're praying it does!

Oh my! I just realized my reviews have been largely done "backwards." I reviewed the stays oldest to newest and the site posted them from newest to oldest. I hope my comments make some sense. None the less, Crystal and her whole family (human and canine) are warm and loving to our Teddy and to his as out of towner's here for Mayo Clinic. Thank you, thank you Crystal for being as skilled and caring as you are to your canine guests. You're amazing!

It's only a couple more days to go before we'll be heading back to MI. I seriously wish we could transplant Crystal, Justin, the kids and dogs to East Lansing, MI, home of Michigan State University to know we wouldn't need to use any other sitter's. It's been such a pleasure to have Teddy in Crystal's home. I have no worries about him at all when he's there. Refer to my first review for more details!

Our Teddy has stayed with Crystal for several days now during our visit to Mayo. Their sweet Huskie, Millie is the apple of Teddy's eye. Crystalmsaid they do seem to be in love.Ted's an 18" high pomeranian-eskimo. One night when we told Teddy it was time to leave, Teddy gravitated toward Millie and Millie stood over Teddy at tje front door as if to say, "you're not taking him with you." It was one of the cutest moments ever during our stay. We love Millie and Zoe, Crystal!

Crystal has the most loving dogs and children! All 4 treat Teddy so sweetly and make him feel comfortable and happy in this home away from home. What more could we want?
Teddy loves being at Crystal's! Whether it be running in the fnced hard with Crystals dogs or riding along for a sales meeting, Teddy enjoys his time here immensely.
Teddy had another great day at Crystal's. Being from out of town, Crystal and Justin have the ability to make us feel so at home that we feel more like family than clients.
See our first review summarizinf Crystals care for our Teddy-Ruxpin while we were at Mayo. She's the best!
I would highly recommend Crystal! She and her family were great. Very friendly, knowledgable and kept us informed. We are traveling again in the future and definitely will be booking with Dogvacay and Crystal!
We were new to Dog Vacay before this experience. We wanted to bring our dog along with us while we were at Mayo with our daughter because we had lost his doggie sister recently and he was still grieving. From the moment Crystal greeted us I knew our Teddy Ruxpin would be happy to spend his time away from us in her home. Crystal is warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. She listened to specific concerns we had for our dog and encouraged us to ask any questions we wanted to. Including the day of our meet and greet, Crystal watched Teddy 7 days. She was extremely flexible and met our last minute requests readily which was helpful since we were dealing with Mayo clinics' schedules. The two children were gentle with the dogs (and always supervised) if that's something someone is concerned about with this provider. She is knowledgeable about click training. She and her husband's house has a good sized yard for running and playing. Dogs are supervised during their time outside.Teddy was happy to see us when we picked him up but was fast friends with Crystal's dogs. We will be back in March and plan to have Crystal watch our dog again. My daughter (21yrs), my husband and I highly recommend her. Her rates are low for all the quality time and attention your dog(s) will receive in her home.

Excellent experience for the dogs and myself! Crystal accepted a last minute request and I couldn't be more grateful!
Crystal H. was wonderful from start to finish!
Not only was she professional, but she was like having an old friend watch my two best friends, Norman and Bernadette. She was more than willing to ease my youngest sons worries by sending us lots of pictures throughout our 10 hour day at Mayo Clinic. She was also kind enough to give my boys a small gift after their long day.
Thank you DogVacay and Crystal H. I will certainly be using your service in another six months. Hopefully Crystal will be available!

Crystal was extremely easy to work with! Very flexible and a joy to work with. My puppy had a wonderful time at her house. Will definitely be using her in the future!
Crystal is super friendly, has a great back yard for pets, and has two dogs that enjoy playing with newcomers. She even sent videos and photos of my pup several times a day. I highly recommend her!
