About Pat

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Convenient to DFW airport, Six Flags, Cowboy Stadium!

We are celebrating three years on, and we love it!! My 16-year-old twin daughters are my helpers. I grew up on a farm in northwest Oklahoma and had the pleasure of being raised with many different types of animals. My girls, although raised "city girls" inherited a love for all things furry.

I am still home all day to love and care for your pet, but the girls have recently begun attending a local charter school after years of homeschooling. My girls are veterinary assistants-in-training. (It’s a five year program through 4-H.) We were drawn to the program because of our deep love of all animals and a desire to help care for them. Now we've discovered Rover and the girls can't believe they can make a little money in such a fun, easy way. :-)

My elderly mother recently moved in with me. She's an 88-year-old farmer's wife who has loved and cared for animals her entire life. The kids and I love having her here.... and so do our doggie guests who quickly learn that because Grandma is less active than other members of the household, she is a great snuggler, and that she has a treat jar always at her side. :-) Unfortunately, because Grandma gets around with a cane I have to be more particular about which dogs I care for in our home. LARGE, YOUNG, ENERGETIC dogs are no longer a good fit. *****

We have a couple of small dogs of our own. We are also volunteers with the Texas Ferret Lovers Rescue and normally have 3-4 ferrets (caged in their own room) who are here as permanent fosters because they're too old or sick to be adopted.

Our home is extremely pet friendly and pet safe.

We have a large backyard with privacy fence. For safety, one corner of the yard is fenced off as a dog run and separates dogs from the pool. Dogs are allowed the run of the entire yard only when I am outside to supervise. Our pool is also equipped with an alarm which goes off outside as well as in the house.

All animals in our care are given plenty of room to run and time to play, however, are never left outside for extended time in extreme heat, cold, or after dark.

We don't like crates or pens and seldom use them. We love your babies like our own.

We are experienced giving oral medication as well as injections.

We offer the following services from our home:
* Overnight boarding.
* Daycare
* Pick-up and drop-off service.
* Bathing and grooming.

REMEMBER, WE CAN ALSO COME TO YOU!! Some pets do better left in the comfort and familiarity of their own home with a pet sitter checking in on them throughout the day. Our rates start at $18 per 30 minute visit, depending on your location and number of pets. Ask me for details if this is something you might be interested in.
Our rates depends on location. Let's talk!

From your home we offer the following:
* Dog walking.
* Mid-day potty breaks for when you're working those long double shifts.
* Daily/twice daily check-ups while you're away.
* Plant care, mail brought in, etc. If we're there anyway, just ask and we can probably take care of it.

Pat and her family do a great job of loving our dog.
My wife was very nervous leaving the dogs for the trip. We met Pat and both the house and her were both great. We dropped them off and everything went perfect. We will use her in the future.
Pat was amazing with Snuggles. Snuggles has never stayed with anyone else & I was very concerned about how he would behave for 2 days without me. Pat was very patient & nurturing with him. Snuggles has very bad anxiety but Pat was able to put him at ease. She sent pictures to reassure me that he was okay. I would definitely recommend Pat as a sitter because she understands that our 4 legged kids are like are babies. I would definitely utilize Pat's services going forward! She is amazing
Pat was great- friendly, always available, and my dog seemed to enjoy himself. I'd recommend her for future guests!
Max stayed with Pat and the girls for about ten days, he said he had a very nice time and enjoyed the stay. Max really appreciated that it was easy to talk the girls into giving him extra treats. He was happy and healthy when I went to pick him up which is what I was hoping for the most and Pat certainly delivered. The photos she sent while I was gone were awesome and really keep me assured that Max was doing well. Thanks to Pat for a great job.
I trust that our dog named Grace, a 4-yr old Yorkshire Terrier, was very happy during her 4-night stay at Pat Y's home.
Pt Y's daughters helped make Grace happy. I understand that they let Grace sleep in their bedroom as well.
Pat Y did send photos of Grace's activities to us while we were away. We appreciated greatly this extra services
Pat responded to my reservation request very quickly. While we were away she sent us several pictures of our Maisie to reassure us that she was happy and doing well. I would recommend Pat to anyone needing overnight care for their dog. She and her family will give your fur baby lots of love and make them feel at home while you're away.

Pat seemed very caring and was responsive to any and all communication - she even shared a couple pictures of my dog during his stay! He seemed to be happy and well taken care of when I picked him up.
Although We have moved to a different state, we miss Pat and the great care she gave to Pearl and Axel! Highly recommended!
I was able to book with Pat last minute and she was very reassuring. I had never boarded my dog or left her with anyone other than family prior to her stay with Pat. She was so kind and caring, I felt so comfortable leaving my Penny with her. I would definitely recommend Pat to anyone!
Pat did a great job with our dogs especially with a last minute request. Would recommend to others.
Sadie had a great time!
Pat was very accommodating with pick up and drop off times, despite a last minute reservation and was really good about sending updates and photos. I have never used Dog Vacay before but Pat made me feel comfortable about leaving my dog in her care for the weekend. I would definitely use her again!
Great job! So happy to find Pat and work with her.
Pat was awesome! After other arrangements fell through, we needed someone to help out with only a few hours notice. She was fast to respond, willing to let us leave Gizmo within a few hours time and even would Gizmo his meds for itchy, allergy paws. When we met her, she was friendly and Gizmo seemed at ease right off the bat.
She kept us informed on how he was doing with updates and pics and I would say Gizmo was quite content with all the attention her daughters gave him! Thanks again Pat and we hope to have Gizmo vacay with you again!
Pat was extremely accommodating and kept us up to date with messages, photos and videos of our little girl throughout her vacay :) Super happy!
Pat and her girls came to our rescue when our regular sitter was not available. We had a great meet-and-greet and two daycare stays before a two-night sleepover, and our pup had a great time on every visit. Pat sent pics and videos to let us know all was well. We really appreciate it!
Our Basset Hounds spent a day getting used to Pat's home before we sent them on a longer stay (also reviewed).

They appeared to adapt just fine and I believe Pat spends time with them so they get to know her and the routine at her home.

Would recommend.
My two Basset Hounds went first on a Day Stay then spent a few days with overnight.

They seldom board and the female is VERY bonded to US, so I was concerned how they would do. Not to worry. Pat took care with letting them get used to her home and the routine there. I believe she has lots of knowledge about canine behavior.

The photos and updates I received showed them looking at home, including the hound I felt would be most ill at ease staying somewhere else.

I would definitely want them to stay at Pat's again if we needed to be away. Even if months go by, I think they would remember it and not feel like they were in strange surroundings.

So, the very highest of recommendations. It is very reassuring to us to have found someone to care for our fur babies when the need arises.

This was also my first experience with DogVacay and have had no problems. It seems to be a good service.
Pat does a fabulous job with our dog Pepper. All is made easy and comfortable for the dog and her owners.
Pat was very good with Bella and Mindy. She fully understood the differences in their personalities. She kept me up to date with how they were doing as this was the first time we were apart for longer than a night or two.
Loved how easy it was to reserve the nights and how easy to pay.
I will surely use her again!
Pat is very friendly and obviously loves dogs. I never leave my dog anywhere so was very anxious about leaving her. She loved Pat and her family. Pat was so good at keeping in touch with me, sharing pictures and just letting me know how things were going. I will definitely have Shaili vacay at her house again.
Pat was very good with our dog. She treated her like one of the family. We are very thankful
Pat and family are great! Feel my dogs are well cared for when staying there.
Happy with the experience of boarding my pooch for 4 nights. Pat and all others in her home seems to love dogs so I was glad that my one got to enjoy his stay here while I was out of town. Definitely will board my pooch again with Pat.
Ryley had a great time.. I slept comfortably at night knowing she was not cooped up on a cage all day at a boarding facility.
This was the second test run for our high-strung terrier mix, Shadow. As before, she had no problems when she stayed two nights at Pat's house. Now that Shadow & Pat are comfortable with each other, it's time to schedule an 8 day vacation for the terrier.
Pat was amazing to take in our crazy puppy and she was still smiling when we picked her up. Great first experience with doggie vacay!
Pat was a great host to our dog! She made my dog and I feel welcome from the moment we arrived at her home. She responded quickly to all communication and was very accommodating, even though we booked our dog's stay with little notice. I plan to use her again for next time.
Fantastic! Our dog's stay was perfect. Thank you Pat!
We are very happy with the way Pat has taken care of Seppe. She is experienced AND very relaxed with animals, has a natural way with them.
Pat is a great dog lover! Her home is set for doggies of all sizes. My dogs loved her pets, her sofa and the large back yard to roam around. Pat was very attentive to my Dalton and Lola, loving them both. My dogs had a great time!
We needed a place to leave our terrier mix dog in June, so we thought we would try an overnight stay with Pat to see if the dog "Shadow" (& Pat) would be compatible. It worked out fine. We will do a two nighter in May so our dog will become even more comfortable for an 8 night stay in June. I have confidence that Shadow is in good hands when staying with Pat & family.
Pat was the perfect foster mom for our 4 mo old maltipoo, Taffy, while visiting our son and his family in Tx. With a 2 and 3 yr old, we knew Taffy wouldn't get the attention she needed. I took Taffy out in the middle of our stay. She was so excited to see Pat upon our return, showering her with kisses, I saw she was happy staying there. Pat sent us daily photos and videos so that we could see a happy puppy, giving us a peace of mind that a kennel never could have.
Pat was awesome and made me feel confident that my dog was in good hands! That was a concern of mine, since she gets uncomfortable in new surroundings. She assured me that if Zippy was uncomfortable, she would separate her from the other dogs. When I came to pick her up, she was hanging with the other dogs, and was pampered throughout the week by her family. So much better than a kennel!! Will use Pat again!
Hannah always does well with Pat and her family. I would recommend her!
Great experience. Will use again.
Pat was great! Her home was very inviting and it made my wife and I very comfortable knowing that she had other dogs of her own and that Sunday would have friends while he was there.
Our Skippy had a great time at Pat's. As soon as we entered Pat's home she made us and Skippy feel comfortable. Pat sent us pictures showing Skippy having a great time. If every in the area again we absolutely will use Pat to provide Skippy with a safe environment for his little vacation. thanks Pat!!
My dog might've had a better vacation than me!
8 Months ago I was in a bad place and needed to Dog Vacay my dog while i went back home to hawaii for my moms funeral, Not to mention I was without a home and sleeping in my truck, It was really bad but pat agreed to take missie on short notice this family was gracious and caring and showed my baby all the love she could get I am very grateful for PAT and DOG VACAY all though it was 8 months ago the services you all provided was more than i can say from the Dog Vacay People to Pat and her Family Thanks for a Job Well Done!

My Kindest Regards
Alena & Missie Mason

P.S. Missie is 14 now and doing fine
I was very happy with the stay and the photos I received from Alexandria's stay with Pat & her family. If I have the need to find her a place to stay while out of town again I hope to use Pat's services again!
Pat and the girls were great. I felt very reassured that my dog was well cared for. The day I was to drop her off to Pat's the weather reports showed bad weather coming, Pat was very understanding and was okay with me dropping her off early - that was greatly appreciated.
Pat was very kind and flexible as we had to book our dogvacay very last moment. Flynn seemed like he had a great time while we were away running and playing to his heart's content. Pat shared a text how Flynn was adjusting his first night there so that gave us comfort! Pat was very flexible with our pick up time as well. We were so thankful for Pat's help and care.
I have felt very comfortable with the care Pat provided for Kebo after his eye surgery. He was seperated from the other pets so he could rest the 1st day, which he needed. This morning he had a lot of spring in his step, so I expect he'll be active today. I don't know if picture updates come when it's just a "day care" arrangement, but it's all good. He's had plenty of TLC for sure.

I'm so glad Pat was available when his surgery was postponed. It put me at ease knowing where he'd be without going through the whole meet & greet process again. Thanks Pat!
What a great service! Pat responded very quickly to all inquiries, and after our first interview, my dogs literally pulled me to Pat's door when I dropped them off. I got a picture (I was gone only 48 hours and communications were limited) of the dogs and saw how happy they were. Pat took great care of my fur kids and I would not hesitate to leave them in her care in the future.
What a great experience this has been. Pat and her daughters turned out to be exactly what we had in mind in considering this type of service and took great care of our three dogs while we were away. Pat took photos and sent them to my phone to reassure me that everything was going well. I very much appreciate the attention and care she gave to our fur babies. Our dogs were happy to see us when we picked them up, but I could tell that they had a nice time and were well tended to in our absence. Thanks, Pat!
I am so happy to say that we found this service with Pat and her daughters. This was a last minute find as our regular dog sitter wasn't available and I am happy to say we now have a back-up sitter for Brody! They made me feel comfortable to leave our little fur ball behind and sent updates on a regular basis.
This was the first time we had ever left our puppy, and not take her with us out of town. I was very hesitant about leaving her. Mrs.Pat did a wonderful job with Jupiter, she is a diva in every way, and Mrs. Pat made sure was treated that way. When Jupiter came home, she was exhausted from playing with the other puppy's but very happy as we could tell. I plan on using Mrs. Pat again in the future, even if were to just give Jupiter an opportunity to get away an play.
I have never left her before and Pat did a wonderful job. She sent pics and allowed me to have a great vacation with no worries. Norma Jean had a great time also and made some new friends. I will definitely use her again. Thanks Pat!
This was ours and our dogs first dog sitting service and we couldn't be more impressed! We just picked up our dog after our vacation and think he had more fun then we did! Pat and her girls are great! We loved getting the picture updates and could tell he had a great time! We will be recommending them to everyone!
Fantastic! My dogs were very well cared for, they came back happy and worn out! Pat sent me pictures he whole time and she has always responded to all my inquiries very promptly. My pups will definitely stay with Pat every time we travel:)!
Pat is a warm, loving lady who shares my love for dogs. I would not hesitate to recommend her (and her family) to keep your pet.
