About Wendy

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
THANK YOU to my loyal clients and my new guests!

EXCLUSIVE sitting service, which means your family member will be the ONLY GUEST, with the exception when they are 2 or more siblings already living together.
I offer a high standard and proper care for your pet. They will enjoy every relaxing activity, having them supervised and following every instruction you leave me while you are away.

I am available for sitting, walking, boarding and grooming. I have a flexible schedule and I am available during the day, afternoon, night and weekends.
I can adjust the schedule to what your pet is used to doing or adding new activities you would like him/her to try.

I also give baths , ear cleansing and nail trim (grooming package) upon request, usually the owners ask for this package the day they will pick their pets up so they go home all clean and refreshed.

When sitting at my home, your pet and I will go for walks 4 times a day: as soon as they wake up in the morning, at noon after lunch, in the afternoon after a play date and at night before they go to bed (after dinner). I love going to the dog park, as well as trying new places to entertain your loved one. So, if there is a specific place your pet likes to go I can accommodate.

I also offer sitting at your home, the plan consists in doing 3 visits a day to check on your pets, feeding them, walk them, clean after them, make sure they have fresh water available at all times and follow the routine that they are already used to. I ALSO DO OVERNIGHTS WITH A PRICE ADJUSTMENT. *See rates for traveling dog sitter.

If you have a cat instead of a dog, I haven't forgot about you! I have some clients who asked me to take care of their lovely kittens. The cat visit consists in 1 visit a day (it may varies with the owner's demands or the cat's special needs), where I visit the owner's house, feed them, clean their litter box, pet them, play with them and make sure they have water available at all times. I can also bring them to my home and spoil them. *See rates for cat visits.

Looking forward to care for your special one! :)

About me.:
I am a student who spends up almost all her time at home. I have been taking good care of pets with dogvacay.com since May 2013 and it has been a blessing to me, getting to know all these amazing pets with different personalities, expressions and behaviors. So far I've had over 400 confirmed bookings!

I am available during the day, afternoon, night and weekends. And you can reach me by phone 24/7, also I have surveillance cameras in my apartment 24/7 !

During your pet's stay with me you will receive pictures of them acting silly, having fun and relaxing so if you are shy to call or too busy on your trip, you can know that your pet is enjoying his/her time and that they are safe and sound.

I have purchased the Dogvacay Premium Insurance that offers you a comprehensive insurance policy that provides the host (me) with $4,000,000 of liability protection and covers the pets under my care up to $25,000 in emergency care at no upfront cost; most important of all, it offers a piece of mind for the three parts (your pet, you and me).

I look forward to caring for your special one!

FAQ (Please read):

What would I like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?
Just need specific instructions and I will adapt to everything the pet is already used to.
NO BREED PREFERENCES and this is a big issue for me since I have owned German Shepherds, Rottweilers and Pit Bulls in the past, I don't think you should be judged based on how you were born since ANY dog can be aggressive or have some attitude problem.

Do I have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?
Yes, I do own a brand new 2016 SUV.

Am I comfortable administering medication?
Absolutely.

Do I have a backyard?
I do have a small backyard that is fenced in with wood, also a large front yard it has plenty of room for them to play, sun bathe or just relax in the shade under my supervision.

Where will your dog sleep?
I accommodate to the owner's instructions. In the past I had pets who slept in our bed, other slept on the couch, in the living area I provide a big pet bed that sometimes they share and sleep there. I have also had shy puppies used to sleep under the furniture and a senior mama who only slept in the closet with the door closed, so I had to empty all my closet just for her once, it was quite a difference experience but she behaved excellent, she just got afraid by night time.

Where will I take your dog on walks?
I am proud to say that the Condominium that I live in is considerate the "Most Pet Friendly Condominium inside of the Loop" by many companies on internet.

We have green pet friendly areas everywhere. The one that I use the most is the one in front of the main gate, is big, has a trail that takes you all around the condominium from the outside. I also have Hermann Park across the street, when the weather is not that hot or raining, I take them for a run along the Park (obviously adapting myself to the pet's activity level and physical routine). I also encourage to take them to a dog park that I adore, they already know me there, it is so fun because the dogs can run free, interact with other pets, socialize and build their personalities.

I'm a repeat customer, very happy to leave my puppy with Wendy!
I'm a repeat customer, very happy to leave my puppy with Wendy!
Wendy was amazing! This was the first time I've left my rescue with someone other than immediate family so I was very nervous, but Wendy was great at calming those nerves. my dog looked extremely happy in all the pictures she sent and I loved the calming those nerves. my dog looked extremely happy in all the pictures she sent and I loved the fact that she only keeps one dog at a time. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
