About Sonya

We are a pet friendly family and love to have a dog or two around the house. Currently, we have an Airedale pup who loves to meet other dogs.

We have plenty of room indoors and outdoors for your dog. He/she will be fed and walked on a daily basis according to your notes for me. Your dog(s) will get lots of love, walks, food and water. I'm a stay at home mom and I can walk dogs on the sidewalks down various streets. We are in a pet friendly neighborhood with other dogs as well.

Sonya was a great host and very accommodating. We would highly recommend her.
We have brought Martha to stay with Sonya multiple times and felt very comfortable with the level of care she was given on both occasions. She took the time to send photos and updates every day which we loved. Martha has a great time playing there- we can tell by how exhausted she is once we get her home. :) Highly recommend!

We have been using Sonya for our little doggie's vaca needs for quite some time now. Sonya is extremely accommodating and is a wonderful host for Nina! Nina is always excited to come and see Sonya and her family and as you can see they genuinely like her and play with her. We always enjoy the pictures! I never have to worry that Nina is being cared for with the utmost care. I highly recommend Sonya for your doggie vaca needs!!

Sonya runs a 5 PAW hotel! She is very caring & my dog is always very relaxed. I love the photo updates she sends!
Absolutely Awesome!!!!
Cody had a great time!
Sony and her family were wonderful. It was only the 2nd time I have used Dog Vacay and I was quite nervous. Bella has fear aggression with people and other dogs. Sonya somehow got her to get along with 4 other dogs boarding at her house and Bella did great with her family. The daily pictures and quick email made me have a worry free vacation. I highly recommend her!

As always, Jenny had a wonderful DogVacay with Sonya and her family. She usually shakes every time we leave her anywhere except with Sonya's family. It provides me such peace of mind knowing how comfortable Jenny is with them while I am gone. Thanks again, Sonya.

Sonya is the best! My dog was having some last minute stomach problems. Sonya gave her meds and cooked rice & chicken. Emma was so relaxed and well taken care of. I am & will be a repeat customer!!
Thanks for taking excellent care of Chloe! Sonya is the best and gives us peace of mind that Chloe is in great hands.
Thanks for taking great care of Chloe!
Leaving my dog (Lexi) with Sonya is always my first choice. She is wonderful with her. The daily photos and updates reassure me that everything is going fine. When I pick Lexi up from her stay, I can tell that she was comfortable and enjoyed being there. Thank You Sonya!

Our dog Bentley loved his stay at Miss Sonya's!! Whenever we've boarded him at big box kennels in the past, he's always come home exhausted as if he never slept. His temperament when he got home was as though he had never left! We are getting ready to make him another reservation!

Thanks to Sonya, we always have peace of mind that Chloe is well taken care of while we were away. Chloe is looking forward to her next stay with Sonya in July and we know she will be happy on her next vacay! Again - thanks so much Sonya!
Jenny had another great stay with Sonya and her family, full of lots of petting and belly rubs.
Our dog, Jenny, seemed to have a wonderful first "Paws Vacation" with Sonya and her family. Jenny is a very shy and somewhat anxious dog, that had a previous negative experience with a small kennel environment. Therefore, I was somewhat nervous about needing to leave her for several weeks in a completely new environment. However, Sonya sent pictures daily, which continually reassured me that she was doing very well at their home, and allowed me to enjoy my vacation as well. When I picked her up, she looked well taken care of, and seemed very comfortable around Sonya and her family.

Thanks so much, Sonya. I definitely will be using your "Paws Vacation Home" again.

Another great Vacay for Chloe with Sonya! It's wonderful to know we have Chloe staying with a caring provider. Could not be any better for our family. Thanks again Sonya!
I had a very positive experience with Sonya. My dog Emma, is 11 1/2 & this was the first time she stayed with someone other than a friend or family.
I kept in touch with Sonya during the stay & her replies were very prompt. I did get some pictures & that was very much appreciated.
Emma was totally calm when we picked her up & brought her home.
I would definitely use Sonya again & will be recommending her to a friend tomorrow!

Sonya is GREAT! I needed a last minute dog sitter and she was able to help! I had a meet and greet with her - and she has a great open concept home that is dog friendly. My fur babies did great and were returned to me happy and clean. I would recommend Sonja for your pet sitting needs. I plan to call her again!

Sonya is really wonderful and she took great care of our dog Murphy, who is a senior dog and needs a little extra attention. Sonya is really a life saver and we really enjoyed our time away more knowing that Murphy was in such good hands. Thank you Sonya!

Sonya is excellent!! She is very flexible with drop off / pick up times. Posted great photos of our dog playing and having a great time at her house. Would highly recommend !!
We could not have been happier with Sonya and her family hosting Chloe. Leaving our dog with Sonya really gave us peace of mind that she would be well taken care of while we were away. Daily messages and pictures were the very best to always know how Chloe was doing. When we travel again we hope that Sonya will be able to host Chloe for her dog vacay! We could not be more satisfied. Thanks so very much Sonya!

Sonya, Thank you very much, I have a happy and healthy dog. Kate
Sonya is the best! Our two dogs were wonderfully cared for, in the most expert way. The stay is so much better than a kennel, and Sonya is an extraordinary host. We were privileged to be able to leave our chocolates for three days with her, and would unreservedly recommend her to anyone.

Sonya was a wonderful host. She has a sweet, kind nature that I'm sure my dog could sense, and she made his first experience away from home relaxed and fun. Sonya provides a warm, comfortable environment and plenty of attention, walks, and affection. She put my mind at ease. Excellent.

This was our first time using this service and we are glad we did. Sonya did an amazing job with our dog and shared pictures with us throughout the weekend. Thanks so much!
My dog has pretty severe separation anxiety and he did very well at Sonya's...He was so calm and relaxed when I got him home, more so than any other time.
Sonya is amazing-- I was very nervous about leaving Chalkie for the first time, but after meeting Sonya, I was instantly put at ease. She sent me pictures daily which was also a tremendous relief. She's very conscientious and caring-- a great choice for your furry loved ones!

Sonya and her family were great with Shorty! We were out of the country and felt very comfortable leaving him there
We've lost track of how many times our family has turned to Sonya and her family to care-take our fur-boy when we travel...... clearly that's because both ourselves and our dog have had only GREAT experiences! We usually find our four-legged friend playing in the yard with Sonya's kids - he's definitely one of the family when he's there! He comes home calm, happy and well cared-for.

Thanks again, again, and again Sonya and family! =)

Sundance and Charlie were immediately comfortable with Sonya and her beautiful family. they were clearly loved and well cared for while there for the week. I highly recommend Sonya as a top notch caregiver!!
Thank you so much Sonya! Cash spent five nights with Sonya and her family. She sent daily pictures which helped with our separation anxiety. Cash was clearly fine and enjoying his vacation:)
Cash had a great night stay. This was only the second night away from us and we couldn't be happier with the care that he received. If you are looking for a loving and safe environment look no further.
Sonya did a wonderful job with our little Oscar. This was the first time we had to leave him as we travel with him all the time! He always looked engaged and active in the daily updates that we received. The idea that he was in a home as opposed to a 6 x 6 kennel for 10 days made us feel better as well. Besides feeling confident that he was well cared for, he now actually eats ALL his food when he's supposed to - no more finicky eater! We would/will recommend Sonya highly for anyone looking to "board" their family member!

Sonya and her family really took great care of Murphy... This was his first sleepover.... Thank you Sonya hope to see you and your family again!! Xxxxx Murphy
This was our first time using anyone but family to take care of our dog, Zeke so we were a bit nervous. Meeting Sonya and seeing her with the dogs in her care and how much she knew about them was really reassuring. We felt that Zeke was well cared for and had a great experience. The pictures that were sent daily really put our family at ease. We will definitely be back.

This was my first time trying "DogVacay." It was a wonderful experience. Sonya (and her family) are very loving, caring people. I could tell from the start that they loved dogs. She sent me a daily message with pictures (that made me feel comfortable that my dog, Lexi, was doing fine).

Thank you Sonya. I was really able to enjoy my vacation knowing that Lexi was in good hands.

We are thrilled with the care and personal attention Sonya gave to Cash. This was the first night he stayed away from home. Sonya cared for Cash like he was part of their family. She walked him, played with him and she introduced him to dogs in the neighborhood so he could play. We love that! We'll be back and will highly recommend you to others via Dog Vacay. Thanks again!

We could not have been happier with the attention and care Sonya provided to our quirky little Lowchen. Dugan has enjoyed 2 separate stays at her house and is always well tended to by Sonya and her patient and gentle dog loving family. It is so reassuring to leave him in such capable hands and we always appreciate and smile at the photo updates of our furry family member!

Working with Sonya was fantastic and completely seamless. She made my first experience with DogVacay.com amazing! From the moment I met her, I felt at ease leaving my dog in her care. Sonya has a beautiful home with a wonderful backyard for the dog to play in. It was great to see photos of Oli. I can tell my dog was very well taken care of. I highly recommend Sonya to anyone! Thank you, Sonya!

If you are looking for a dog sitter, STOP and look no further! I have a 7 year-old female golden doodle who has never boarded and I couldn't have been more pleased with Sonya. I was pleasantly surprised when I received the daily photos and texts. It made my vacation much more enjoyable seeing my dog was happy and well taken care off. Thank you Sonya...you have my highest recommendation!!!

I am thrilled with the care Gidget and Frankie received from Sonya while we were on vacation. I thought I would be a nervous wreck the whole time, because we have never left them with strangers, but after our meet and greet - I knew they were in good hands. I definitely recommend Sonya, especially for playful dogs who like children, as Sonya's kids gave them lots of love and attention. Thank you again Sonya, for making our dogs a part of your family this past week! It is very much appreciated.

This was my first time using DogVacay and Sonya H. was the absolute best. She sent photos daily and it was clear that Piper was having a great time on her weekend stay with Sonya and her family. Knowing that she was in such good hands made my trip even more enjoyable. I highly recommend Sonya and would use her again without hesitation.

Athena and Zeus had a great time with Sonya. She was even nice enough to take them a day early last minute so we could leave for our vacation before a large storm came into the area. Our dogs are high energy and definitely a handful, we are grateful to have such a wonderful sitter to turn to. Highly recommend! Got daily pictures of our babies- felt 100% comfortable with her service.

Sonya worked out very well for our dog Bailey. This was our first time "boarding" her, and we felt very comfortable with her time there. The pictures that she sent, through the course of the week's stay, were great!!
We were absolutely delighted with Sonya. This was our first time leaving Pippa with anyone so we were a bit nervous. After meeting Sonya we felt totally at ease. She has a terrific relaxed demeanor. The pics she sent were an added bonus. Two thumbs up!

Sonya's house is paws down a 5 bone resort!!! Artie had a great time as seen the pictures Sonya sent. Also, Sonya pays close attention to detail in caring for her house guests. She took great care in making sure Artie felt at home while he was with her. We couldn't be happier!!! Artie is our fur kid & knowing he has a fun, safe & caring place to stay if we go away is a huge relief!! Artie will be back. & we highly recommend Sonya!!!

My dog stayed at her house for 3 nights when I had to go out of town and I was happy with my experience. Sonya was very responsible and sweet- She sent me photos daily, replied to my messages promptly, and provided my dog with a lots of attention and play time. I highly recommend her.

Our dog stayed with Sonya for a week while we were out of town and Sonya emailed us a photo of him every day to show us that he was having a good time.
Sonya is a great communicator and pet sitter. We have an energetic golden retreiver that she and her children kept busy and entertained. They played outside in the snow for hours and Sonya sent photos throughout the duration of our vacation to keep us connected. I would highly recommend her services.

Sonya was awesome! My two dogs had a wonderful overnight. When they came home-they were tired because of all the playtime and exercise they received.
Sonya was very kind and i love that she will provide transportation if needed.
I would use her again for sure!!

Sonya is absolutely awesome! We left our 12 year old Chocolate Lab, Coco, with her for over 3 weeks while we traveled out of the country. We received daily updates and photos and felt so relieved knowing he was in such good hands! He loved going on multiple daily walks and it was obvious he fit right in with the family. We have already booked a second stay with Sonya, and this time we will be bringing our little Yorkie. Look no further...she's the best!!

Jake, our 5 month old black lab had an awesome time! He played with three other dogs including a doberman, his favorite playmate. Jake loves big dogs. Sonya is wonderful with dogs. She monitors play and the needs of each dog. This was our first time here and we would definitely bring Jake again.

Sonya took care of Meghan, my 12-year-old lab, and was very good about sending updates and pictures, which made me feel better about leaving her for 6 nights. Sonya had a couple other dogs during her stay, so Meghan had some playmates, with lots of walks, catching balls, and frisbee! She was tired when we got home--and I'm sure she would love to visit again!

Sonya and her family are wonderful. When we get there, Dina cannot wait to go in. For me this is the best sign that my dog is happy with there. Thank you, Sonya!
We loved having Sonya and her family care for Augie. We got a photo from her every day and he appeared very happy when I picked him up. I would definitely do it again.
Our eight year old Boston Terrier has some health problems and has a strict eating/medication schedule. Sonya had no issues accommodating her needs and made sure to send us a picture every day showing her running around the yard playing. Much better than any kennel experience we've ever had! We have absolutely zero reservation in recommending Sonya and her very loving family.

What's better than a good first impression? A repeat successful second boarding! Thank you Sonya and family - we'll be baaaaack =)
Sonya was great! Our dogs can definitely be a handful- 2 energetic boxers. We were happy she was able to accommodate us for a last minute reservation as we were invited to a Friday wedding out of town. Our dogs obviously had a great time, very sleepy in the car on the way back. Cute photo updates.

Our six year old miniature schnauzer, Jake, spent five nights with Sonya and her family. Sonya took excellent care of him - lots of walks, playtime, and socialization with her children. We loved the photos of Jake that she texted to us daily. We knew he was in good hands. Thanks Sonya!!

Maggie came home very tired after spending four nights with Sonya and her family. She seemed very happy to go home but sad to leave! They have a wonderful family environment; we hope Maggie can visit them again
My family is very happy because Sonya and her family took GREAT care of our dog this week! Sonya offered exactly the positive, loving, well-cared for, home scenario we were looking for to care-take our family pet while we were away.
We have a large, well-trained dog who requires lots of walks, mental games, and the confident use of commands. Sonya not only incorporated our boy into her home but took the time to learn how to communicate with him and sent us daily photos and updates. (We loooooved those photos and updates!) We couldn't be more pleased and we will definitely use Sonya again! Thank you Sonya and family! =)

Sonya was great!!!! Our dog Robbie loved his time with her and her family. He was able to go for many walks and play with other dogs. She also sent us text message updates and pictures to let us know how he was doing!!
Our dog Tucker spent a long weekend with Sonya and her family. They gave him lots of attention which made his separation from us that much easier. I will definitely use Sonya for any of our dog sitting needs in the future.
Sonya is great! She watched my 8 week old Bull Terrier puppy, Nucky, for a week and Nucky did great! As a new dog mom I was nervous but Sonya put in the extra time a puppy requires to make his stay enjoyable and I felt very comfortable with her and trust her. Nucky loved playing with her two children. I received photo updates, which made being away from Nucky a little easier. I highly recommend using Sonya for your DogVacay. I would use her again in a heartbeat!

Sonya was a great match for my King Charles! She fit right in with the family and I never worried about a thing!
I was so glad to find a babysitter for Godfrey, our deaf Boston Terrier in such a short notice. After we met Sonya, she was an easy-going person. She knew what she doing with our precious Godfrey. She took pictures and sent to us which I appreciated that very much. I knew Godfrey was in a good hand. I definitely will use her service again.
