About Varsha

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

I am a Home-maker, Doctor, Animal lover and an active foster volunteer (AC&C). Pet sitting is the only activity that I am passionate about.

I stay full time at home so your little one will be in good hands 24*7 with full attention and care.

I want to return your dog with a great smile on face, wagging tail and little spoiled.

I have successfully completed the following training's:
a. Dog body language and Behavior
b. Medical Training
c. Handling Techniques for Dogs

MY PLACE
My house is a 2 Bedrooms Unit with hardwood and tiles floor. I always use pet friendly, non-toxic, biodegradable, organic cleaners in my home.

Plenty of sunshine, a large fenced backyard and lots of space for a dog to play around.

Great neighborhood, friendly people around, one of the safest place in New Jersey.

Close to Dog Park (0.4 miles), path station, Newark Penn station, Exit 280.

HOW I WORK
I always follow “HAPPY STAY WITH NO RULE” but if you have any specific schedule for your dog, I will stick to it.

*** I love all dogs but only keep small and medium size dogs (up to 40 lbs)***

I don’t board more than 3 dog at a time unless they've had a proper meet & greet (in my place) and are compatible with each other. Siblings, of course, are most welcome to stay and will receive a paw-some discount, too!

I take them for walk 5 times a day: after waking up, after morning feeding, noon walk, after evening feeding and before retiring to bed.

I always clean their paws and give them treats after every successful walk.

I don’t have any specific place for their sleep; but will follow the way you would want him/her to sleep at your home.

I do not provide food and bed as every puppy has its own likes but always provide filtered drinking water (change after every 1 hour), cleans their bowls twice a day.

I provide Kennel/crate free vacay to dog but if they poop/pee at home accidentally; I always give them 15 minutes time out in crate (you can see that crate in my pictures)

While dog sitting, I do not leave them alone for longer period of time, most of my social activities are close to my home.

I always give a nice bath when you pick them up.


Have a PAW-SOME Day!

Wow, where do I even began. My husband and I booked Varsha for our wedding and honeymoon and was beyond pleased with the services we recieved. This was the first time we entrusted anyone to watch kiko our 2 year old rambunctious pup and Varsha was great at easing all fears and answering all of our questions during the intial meet and greet. She is a natural with dogs, kiko gravitated to her. While away I recieved videos and picture updates along with text regarding eating habits and his overall mood. She also responded fast when I would text to check on kiko. I can go on and on and praises of her service. But the bottom line is if you love your extended family members as much as I do and only want the best for them then Varsha is the one ! (Just save some booking slots for us because we will definitely book again :) )

Monte had a great stay with Varsha! Varsha is very friendly and caring and at our introductory meeting, I could tell that Monte would be in good hands and have a good stay. She gave us frequent updates that he was doing well and having a good time. I could see in the pictures that he was relaxing and making himself comfortable. When we picked him up, it was even more apparent that he had a good time with they playful exchange of goodbyes he had with Varsha and her husband. We will certainly use Varsha again in the future! Thank you!

Our dog Ellie has always enjoyed her time with Varsha. Varsha took the time to understand our dogs needs and always provides us with many updates. Varsha is quick to respond to any questions and was also very accommodating when we had some last minute changes come up. We will be using Varsha again in the future

Varsha was wonderful with our 6 year-old French Bulldog Dexter! He had never been left with a sitter before and Varsha treated him with loving care and attention to his specific needs for 4 days. We are happy we found her and recommend her highly, she was very intuitive and skilled with Dexter and he enjoyed his time with her and her husband.

Varsha was amazing with my dogs. It was the first time they have ever been with a doggy sitter outside of their home and it's usually family that watches them. One of dogs get very anxious when I'm not around but she loved it there! She made herself at home shortly after we left. I'm so glad we got to connect with Varsha and have such a patient and amazing dog sitter. Varsha kept us up to date with pictures and videos and helped calm my 4 hrs old's nerve when we left the dogs there. We found our permanent dog sitter when we are out of town!

Varsha was available on short notice to set up a meet-n-greet, then dog-sit our timid 11 year old pup. She updated us throughout the night and took good career of our pet. Great service..
We left our 3 month old puppy with Varsha for 3 nights to attend our daughter's wedding and he had the best vacation :) this was our first experience with DogVacay and we were extremely satisfied with the care and attention our active puppy received! Thank you!

Varsha and her husband were the best home away from home for my dog Taj. She responded right away for my request for a meet and greet. She immediately became comfortable with my dog who can be very timid and shy at first. She did not force the introduction and allowed my dog to warm up to her even though it took a few minutes.
Both her and her husband played with my dog and asked me questions about him. This showed me that they had concern for my pet. I was able to ask them as many questions as I needed to make a decision about her keeping my dog while I was away.
I am so relieved and happy that I chose her for my pet's stay and have no regrets!!!! She is patient, kind, caring, hospitable, and experienced with dogs. She has a beautiful, clean, safe, and open home that you and your dog will love. She will give your pet undivided and personal attention hat is hard to find. She pampers your dog and treats them like her own.
During his stay, she updated me with photos and was available to talk on the phone or via text.

Taj and I cant wait to see Varsha again!

Varsha took wonderful care of our dog. She was terrific and we would highly recommend her. She and her husband are caring and loving.
Varsha is the best. She took very good care of our fur baby while we were away. She sent us pictures of Eva everyday and it gave me peace of mind to know that Eva is being treated so well.. I would definitely recommend Varsha.
This was our first time that we were gonna be away from our 6 months old puppy Micks for 6 days. I was so nervous in the beginning but Varsha was so professional at her job so she made me relaxed when I visited her for the first time and when I was leaving Micks. She is so clean and knows how to take care of a dog very well. During those 6 days, she sent me the pictures of Micks and let us know about how she was doing. It is so hard for me to trust somebody and leave my dog without any hesitations but I seriously did not worry about Micks for one second because I was so sure that she was in good hands. When you meet her, you will understand what I mean. When I visited them to pick her up, Micks was so happy, she was so comfortable at Varsha's place. I highly recommend Varsha, you will have no regrets.

Varsha is fabulous! I really can't say enough good things about her, how well she cared for our "baby boy" Buddy and how much he loved her too.

I think it's very important to add that Buddy has never stayed with a dog sitter as his "grandparents" have been his only caretakers when he isn't with us. And, Buddy is a strange and fickle dog so it really is saying a lot how much he took to her.

We received pictures and updates throughout our entire trip and that really helped keep our mind at ease. I highly recommend Varsha to anyone who is nervous about their first time leaving their dog with someone else or for anyone who just didn't have the great experience we did.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...and look forward to leaving Buddy with you again in January.

My boys (two dachshunds) had a real blast under good care of Varsha and her husband. They are rescued dogs and one of them has an abused background. Because of that, he rarely trusts people. However, he fell in love with Varsha and I do believe that he thinks that she is his girlfriend by now. He completely trusted her and had a great time at her house. I almost don't want to share this information because I want her to be my personal dog sitter but I recommend anybody leave your precious puppy under her care should you need a dog sitter.

We left our little girl Abby in the best care possible. Varsha could not do enough for her she truly loves caring & spoiling them with lots of affection & love.
She made her feel as if it was her house & Abby quickly responded to all of her kindness. Varsha ended up falling in love with her & let her sleep in her bed with them @ night. I would not hesitate to use Varsha again & will tell anyone I can about Dog Vacay they are Awesome. Varsha Thank you Again!!

Varsha is a God sent. From the meet & greet my dogs fell in love with her. Twinky is a bit shy & reserved but Varsha was patient & able to bring her out her shell. Bull well he's always a happy camper. He fell in love with Varsha right away. I received happy pics of my dogs the afternoon we left so she kept in good contact. I will leave my pups with Varsha anytime I take vacation. She truly has the Golden touch. Thanks again! Kimberly

Varsha is amazing and really took the time to learn about our dog's likes and dislikes. She really personalized her care to what would make our dog comfortable. Thank you and we will definitely be using her services again!
Varsha is simply amazing and I cannot imagine anyone more professional, kind and loving around little Quesi.
The meet-n-greet with Varsha and Vivek gave us the peace of mind we needed before leaving; and the daily photo updates and messages were key to know Quesi was in very capable hands.
Varsha made sure to provide personal care and detailed accounts of our puppy's activities in our absence; she has an obvious love of animals and concern for their well being. Quesi (and I) look forward to working with her long into the future and gladly recommend her services.
Thank you very much Varsha!

Varsha and her husband were a great host for our furry kid. When we returned back to pick our pup...we could see that he was very well taken care of and our pup had a great time with them. They are loving and caring. They also made sure they noted all the habits, needs, likes-dislikes etc of our kid. Highly recommended.

varsha and vivek were the most wonderful hosts we could ever wish for! we never, ever left nicky with anyone before, but varsha was most accommodating to changes in our travel schedules and care instructions. and of course, she was wonderfully reassuring about caring for our little girl. they own a large and safe house, with a large backyard, in a very quiet neighborhood, where they walked nicky up to 5 times a day! that certainly kept our doggie entertained!

she kept us informed by phone, photos and video conference and took loving care of our nicky as she was her own. as a matter of fact, the day we picked up nicky, she appeared very attached to varsha and vivek. when were about leave, nicky fondly walked up to varsha one last time, as if she was saying goodbye and that she was going to miss her. we were very touched by this.

we truly value varsha's service and recommend her to everyone looking for a very loving host! we will certainly have her look after our nicky for our next trip.

We left our dog snowy with Varsha and her husband for 4 days and when we went to pick him up he was not willing to come with us. He had his own vacation while we enjoyed ours. He was very happy throughout his stay and the host sent us pictures during the stay which kept our minds at ease. We also skyped once when we missed our puppy a little too much. I highly recommend Varsha and will surely come back again.

Thanks,
Rajesh

Varsha took good care of Jake. Jake was so happy when I returned to pick him up. He was all over the place at her apartment. Some of the pictures I saw from Jake's stay were just amazing. He sure did have a vacation while away from us.

I am definitely going back to her when I need.

We decided to leave our dog Toby with Varsha based on reviews, and when we went there first to see her, we noticed that she was very polite and pleasant. She invited us inside and we realized it was a comfortable, secure, and friendly environment.
We left Toby there for 3 days and we are absolutely happy, she genuinely loves dogs.

thanks

Varsha was great. Dogs were very happy and the whole week went by very smoothly!!
We had recently had a horrible experience with a Boarding kennel. It was hard to imagine that we would never be able to go out without having to board Boomer again. Varsha and her husband were our saviors. We reserved with them the day before we had to leave and I can say that we did not regret it! Boomer loved it! I knew that I had nothing to worry about. She sent pictures and whenever I texted her she answered answering any questions I had about how he was doing. We will certainly be leaving Boomer there next time we travel!

My second experience with DogVacay and Varsha was amazing. She took care of my dog carefully. she treated my dog Cola as her own pet, and I think my dog loves her, too. I felt so lucky to find such an excellent host-Varsha! I will choose her as host for my dog next time without any hesitation. I have nothing but 5 stars for this host. Great experience. Thanks, Varsha!
