About Alison

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom. I have had the pleasure of caring for two rescue dogs, a rabbit, a turtle, fish, and a bird throughout my life. I love animals and know how special they are to us.

I offer a trustworthy, reliable service to you and lots of TLC for your dog which ultimately gives you peace of mind while you are away. I will play, walk and love your dog as if he/she was my own!

My home is completely secure with a gated & shaded yard.

I have two resident dogs, Colt (80 lbs German Shepherd rescue) and MacKenzie (16 lbs Bichon Frise) an unlikely pairing, but it works! Both dogs are a big part of our family! They are both people and dog friendly!

My rates may vary during peak summer and holiday seasons. I offer a discount for first time bookings when you inquire!

So excited to have found Alison to watch our pets. The dogs were pampered pups!!!! She did an outstanding job keeping me up-to-date on how they were doing and sent fantastic pictures.
I couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter! Alison and her family are incredible. She really took the time to get to know my dog, Kaya, and I before we booked our reservation, which was so important to me. It's always nerve wracking leaving your pet with someone new, but I can't think of anyone better than Alison to watch over your fur baby! She sent me photo updates all the time and I could tell my dog was having a great time. When I picked her up it was great to see how much she enjoyed being with Alison and her family. She also became best friends with their dog Colt. If you need a pet sitter, Alison is the best! I already recommended her to my friends and coworkers, and plan on having Kaya stay with her again!
Allison and her family were amazing. Not only was she prompt to respond to me, she also helped me use the dogvacay app. She was extremely lovi got our dog, her home was dog friendly and her animals as well. We received many photos, videos and communications each day, usually of him playing with her dogs or sitting on her laps or her husband and daughter's. And, our little boy got to sleep in either her bed or her daughter's. We couldn't have imagined better care! We won't hesitate to leave him with her again and feel very fortunate to have found her.
Alison is fantastic! She took care of our two Labradors while we were on a family vacation. We were able to enjoy our time away knowing our two dogs were under great care with Alison. We will definately ask Alison to take care of our dogs again and would recommend her services to others!

She is great with the dogs and kept us informed on how they are doing. The dogs, Bogey and Bella miss her.
What can we say?! Our Charlie loved Alison and her family! Alison was awesome and took Charlie at short notice for our last minute trip away. We were worried as this was our first time leaving him and didn't want to put him in a kennel - he would have hated it, but we needn't have worried. Alison took the time to send us regular texts and photos of Charlie to put our mind at ease. She really does treat them like her own. She asked for his daily 'schedule' so he would feel as comfortable as possible. We would totally recommend her to anyone and we will definitely be leaving Charlie with her again when we take our next trip. :)
Alison was amazing! I would give 6 stars if I could, because she went above and beyond our expectations. She had an obvious love and understanding for dogs, and a big heart as a person. We got daily texts and photos from her of our dog Meika throughout the day which was comforting. She was very responsive when it came to communication, and was always very accommodating. I would highly recommend her to anyone, and will be using her again if I'm in the neighborhood!
I'm so glad that I discovered Alison on DogVacay! My dog, Mackenzie, took to her immediately. Alison seems very knowledgeable about dogs and their needs and behaviors. She is definitely a dog lover! I felt very comfortable leaving Mackenzie with Alison. I received a lot of pictures of Mackenzie while we were away which was very comforting. When I went back to pick up Mackenzie after a week, she was following Alison around! I will definitely go with Alison again, soooo much better than a kennel!
I was visiting Westlake Village for a conference and needed a place to take care of my terrier Stella for the day. Immediately I could tell that Alison had a huge heart for dogs. It was so wonderful to have found a local host home that would give me a peace of mind and focus on my business. She even texted me photos of Stella. I highly recommend Alison for your doggie sitting needs.
Alison was great! We needed her at the last minute and she went out of her way to accommodate us! We will definitely use her again!
Alison was wonderful. I was nervous to leave my dog for the first time with someone I didn't know so her picture updates made me feel more comfortable. I can tell that my dog had a great time with Alison's loving family and her gentle german shephard. i would absolutely book with her again.
Niko had so much fun he didn't want to leave! That says it all. Alison is a wonderful person, very attentive. I really appreciate the time and effort she puts in to making sure my boy is happy.
Alison's ability to care for dogs is a gift. She cared for my pup as if it were hers, and did a fantastic job. Malinois are a handful to take care of, but her and her family stepped up to the challenge and went above and beyond. She fed, walked, played and comforted Remy on her first night away from home with a 'stranger'. Allison took the time to get to know Remy and her little quirks, making me very comfortable to leave Remy in her care. She also sent me text message updates and pictures throughout her time with Remy.

I would not hesitate to recommend Alison as a dog sitter to anyone. Her love for dogs shows in her enthusiasm and interaction with your pup. She goes above and beyond to get to know and take care of your pup as if he/she was her own.
