About Stella M.

I love little dogs. Will care for small friendly socialized dogs, Under 10 pounds. See the happy dogs I have cared for.

Smoke-free environment for optimal health I believe this is very important. Doggie door and secure, safe enclosed backyard.

I have owned dogs all my adult life and feel they are awesome smart, creatures. I am often called the pied piper with dogs following me where ever I go. I would give your dog lots of love and attention.

My two small poodles welcome and love other dogs and are good companions to all dogs that come into their home.

I am also certified disaster dog caregiver. I have an emergency kit of food water, kennel and most of all a pet plan. I have a truck w camper shell equipped w all the dog necessities and in a moments notice am able to take pets w me.

Pick up by 12 noon. DAYCARE FEE $25 if pick up after 12 noon.

Sorry no puppies.

Excellent!
At the last minute, Stella was flexible enough to provide care for my precious Charlie. She expressed extreme concern about Charlie's separation anxiety and texted me with photos shortly after I left to let me know he was doing fine. She eased my mind by communicating with me and assuring me that Charlie was in good hands. She took the time to speak with me after his overnight stay to discuss the cute details of their time together. I am very, very grateful for Stella's caring for my dog.

This was our n'th time staying with Stella. She is really good with my shy dog. Would choose her again whenever she is available.
This was our second time having Emma stay over at Stella's. Things went smoothly without any hitch. Stella sent us a picture every day which was very nice!
Stella was wonderful with my pups! She was very welcoming and exactly the kind of person dogs love!
Stella looked after Tonto for 3 weeks - a long time considering he hadn't stayed with her before. He seemed quite happy upon my return. She gave me regular photo updates which I appreciated:) Stella is very kind, walked Tonto with her own poodle in the nearby park so he stayed fit and well. She was really flexible for pick-up taking into account her own schedule and mine! We will happily have Stella look after Tonto again.

Colby enjoyed a week's visit with Stella, Koukla and Aphrodite. He adores playing with her pups and loves being able to use the doggy door. And, of course, he very happily went to Stella when we dropped him off. Many thanks, Stella, for your flexibility in the pick up time!

Stella does a great job of taking care of our toy poodle. She is very close to a park so they often go for walks. Maggie seems to enjoy her time there, gets personal attention, interacts well with the other dogs, and we have never had any issues. She has stayed over a couple short times, and a longer stay (almost 2 weeks), all have worked out well. Recommend Stella.

Nice environment for my pup! Stella was responsive and flexible.
Colby had a successful New Year's Eve visit with Stella. He's always very comfortable with her, her poodles and other visiting pups. We'll be back!
Bubbles had a good stay at Stella's house. Stella send us photos and updates during the day. Thanks.
Hadoop stayed with Stella for half a month while we were gone for the holidays.

Hadoop seemed very happy when we picked her up, and Stella told us that she had gotten along well with all the other dogs (minus one scuffle, which was our dog's fault). We were glad to hear that over such a long dogvacay, almost everything had gone well!

The only thing to note is that Stella free-feeds her dogs. Hadoop doesn't self-regulate the amount she eats, and we had left instructions to only feed her a measured amount twice a day. Controlling her food intake wasn't compatible with Stella's dogs' feeding methods, so Hadoop gained a bit of weight during this vacay.

You can tell Stella loves the dogs, and really likes having them around the house! We were glad to get our dog back safe and happy after such a long vacation.

Stella is very reliable and accommodating.
A very good stay for Augie during our 2 week trip out of town.
We had a practice weekend trip stay with Stella before a longer stay for the Christmas break. I was a little nervous about how my dog Emma will do with her unique traits, but Stella was very supportive and made Emma feel at home for the whole weekend.

Stella was also very flexible in scheduling the follow up Christmas break vacay. We were unsure about our plans for a while, she allowed us to have a placeholder while we confirmed our dates. Finally, we had to cancel our trip at last minute because one of our pets was sick. Stella was a really understanding and allowed us to cancel.

I will highly recommend Stella to all my friends and book her for our future vacays.

I would have posted this much sooner if I hadn't become quite ill after our return from our October trip. Stella was very flexible with the changes we had to make during trip. And when Colby's muzzle became messy and tangled, she took the time to trim him so that he was neat and tidy again. Colby has always been comfortable with Stella and loves playing with Aphrodite. We wouldn't hesitate to have Colby stay with Stella again!

Caspian went to stay with Stella over the weekend again, and we can tell that he had a lot of fun. When we dropped him off, he's very excited and immediately started playing with Stella's dogs. During the stay, Stella sent us picture updates, which we very much appreciated. :)
It's great to know that when we need to be out of town, Caspian can enjoy his vacation at Stella's!

Stella was great! She keeps us informed with lots of pictures and messages.
Easy to coordinate and very responsive. I will use Stella again.
Stella is amazing!!! Penny had so much fun with her gorgeous poodles. Stella responded to my messages instantly and truly went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule and last minute booking. I would book again in a heartbeat. It was my first time leaving my pup with someone and I totally trusted Stella's puppy knowledge and supervision.

This is the second time Caspian stayed with Stella. When I was dropping off Caspian, I can see that he was very excited and really wanted to go in. Stella makes the experience truly a vacation for Caspian. We're very happy and would love for Stella to host Caspian's vacations in the future.

Stella took really good care of my dog! She was responsive, sent regular updates with nice pictures and overall experience is really good. Highly recommend!
Stella was so good to our dog, Sandy. She sent lots of pictures, and made sure to let us know how our cavalier was doing while we were away for a family wedding. I would definitely recommend Stella to any friends or family looking for a trustworthy household for their pet.

This is the first time we used Dogvacay and we're very happy that Caspian stayed with Stella! She sent us several updates throughout the stay. We can tell Caspian had a great time from the pictures and also when we picked him up. We'll definitely use this again and let Caspian have another doggie vacation at Stella's in the future!

Our nibbler seemed to have a great time with Stella and her girls!
Stella took care of Java for a week and he had a lovely time! He came home so tired from playing so much with her two dogs! She sent photos of Java everyday, which allowed me to see what he was up to.
We found Stella with just a few days notice for our out of town trip which we could not take our dog this time. Stella arranged for a quick Meet & Greet and got us on her calendar right away. Chloe is just about the same size as her dogs, and loved being there hanging out with them. She had a lot of fun exploring the back patio, side yard, inside and out. Thank you, Stella!

Bilbo had a great time at Stella's He really enjoys playing with her dogs - and has even figured out the doggie door! Bilbo had a slight breathing problem while he was there, and Stella was diligent to help take care of it. I really appreciate her heart for dogs!

Stella agreed to watch Sandy last minute during the Thanksgiving holiday! I loved how knowledgeable she was about smaller dogs and that she has two very friendly small dogs of her own that like to play! I knew that Sandy would have a great time running around her spacious house and yard.

I was worried that Sandy wouldn't sleep well and would keep her awake, but he slept through the night, which was great to hear! Stella also kept me up to date on his stay and sent cute pictures.

Last thing, our flight was delayed coming home for several hours. Stella was so accommodating, letting us come pick Sandy up well after midnight. I would definitely recommend Stella to anyone looking for a home for their dogs during their vacation. She is great!

We were very pleased with our experience with Stella! Our dog, Bilbo, is a Shitzu. As a small dog he seems to be less intimidated by dogs his own size, so when I saw that Stella specializes in small dogs, I was hopeful that it would work out. The meet-and-greet went well, and her place is really a pup paradise - complete with doggie door! While we were gone, Stella sent us several messages with photos which was great! It was a good experience as pet owners and Bilbo came home happy!

We were a bit worried about needing to leave Colby, our 3-year old Maltese Shih-Tzu, for two weeks. After his "vacation" with Stella, however, we would be most happy to have him with her again during any future trips! During our Meet-n-Greet, he loved exploring in her home and yard, got along so well with her two sweet little girl pups, Aphrodite and Koukla, and was smiling contently while sitting on Stella's lap. It was also reassuring to receive Stella's photos of Colby taking walks, playing, sleeping, and just hanging out. It is a huge relief to know we have found someone with whom Colby feels so at home.

Our Havachon absolutely LOVES spending the night at Stella's!

From our first meeting with Stella, it was obvious that she truly loved furry companions. Our dog, Kelso is extremely timid, especially when meeting new friends. This was a big concern, which was almost immediately put to rest when we did a meet and greet with Stella and her two lovable doggies.

Stella was extremely accommodating and flexible with our unusual schedule. She was also great at sending us pictures of our little guy relaxing (he even got to sleep on the bed, which is his favorite!). Stella is extremely easy to communicate with and responds to emails and text messages very quickly.

Stella's house has an awesome outdoor area for the dogs (accessed by a doggie door). She even lives adjoining to a park, where the dogs get lots of walks (even in the rain ;) ).

I would not hesitate to have Kelso visit Stella and her furry pals ANYTIME. This, of course, includes a loud recommend from myself, my wife and Kelso!

We had a great experience with Stella -- the arrangements went without a hitch and our dog Sparky got along great with her poodle Aphrodite. I think he'll be looking forward to our next trip!
To make it short & sweet, Stella was amazing!

We were a bit nervous to leave our puppy with someone as we had only had her a few months, but Stella made it easy. She took the best care of our puppy and was incredibly accomodating to our unexpected change in schedule.

She even sent us a coupon to use for our first visit!

I highly reccomend Stella's services. She left us without worry and able to enjoy our trip.
