About Vicki

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had a love affair with animals my entire life. I grew up in Texas on a farm in a small rural community. I've assisted with cattle and horse births, raised chickens, pigs, and rabbits, as well as had family pets since I was walking. Our family has had a Dachshund (Rusty), Golden Retriever(Joey), a German Shepard/Chow Mix (Phoebee), a Beagle mix (Penny)and a mini Aussie (Budjett). Our beloved Phoebee of 12.5 years recently passed away. She was an amazing, loyal, loving family member missed by all of us. Currently our family has Budjett and a kitten named Buffy.
I have two boys ages 7 and 10. They too love animals and my little one adores to love on them. I love to walk in the mornings and often take Budjett with me. He loves it and is very good when there was more than one dog. I've been through basic dog training class with one as well so I know all the basic commands. We have a dog run in the backyard as well as a pool if your dog likes to swim. However, if your dog prefers to hang out in the house relaxing and cuddling we can accommodate that too.
Personally, I am a special education teacher here in Surprise and my husband is in sales. My mother-in-law, Gramma Pat, lives with us so she is home during the day. She too loves dogs and has had Pugs and some mixed breeds throughout her life.
We would love to take care of your four-pawed family member and become Pet Pals.

Chai had a great time at Vicki's! We got picture updates daily and were assured she was getting along just fine.
She did great and was very informational via text and email on how our animals were. Definitely recommend
Excellent! Vicki does a great job with the dogs and is available and flexible regarding pick up and drop off times. One time, she was able to pick the dogs up when I was having car troubles. She also sends photos of the dogs and takes them for walks. Thank you!

I am totally comfortable leaving my beloved Artie with Vicki and family. They give him the loving care that he needs. I get daily pictures to keep me in touch with Artie.
Scooter seemed very happy with his visit with Vicki. There was always someone with him and they treated him like family.
Vicki made us feel very comfortable with leaving our dog Max with a new sitter. She's open and a great communicator. She was excellent sending us pictures and updates on how Max was doing everyday. I would definitely use her again. Five stars!!!
This was our 2nd time using Vicki. As before, Misty had a blast. Loved the attention and the pool! Wouldn't hesitate to use again!!! Thank You!
I feel so blessed to have found someone who loves my dog and gives my dog a place that's safe and happy for him. Vicki even exercises the dogs well each morning on a long walk. My dog is shy with people, but I can tell that Vicki is now another "mommy" for my dog. He loves her. And I'm very grateful! :)

Vicki was wonderful with my dog. I was very nervous about leaving my dog but she put my mind at ease and kept me updated while I was away. When I arrived to pick up my dog, she was hanging out with the family and she looked happy and comfortable. I recommend using this sitter.

I'm so grateful to Vicki for taking great care of my dog for the first time on short notice. He was shy and scared, but you took extra time with him to make sure he felt loved. I really appreciate that. I'm so glad we have you as a back-up home for our dog while when are out of town.

I had to go out of state for 3 days and I left Athena with Vicky and her family.I got pictures and video of Athena having a great time with them. It was very nice to see her partake in her family's activities. I would definately recommend Vicky
Vicki was awesome! I think our dog was sad to come home, LOL!
I'm so glad I found Vicki. She took great care of our two girls, sent pictures and text updates, and was so kind and accommodating. Highly recommended!
Misty had a great time! She loved all the attention and the pool! We will not hesitate to use Vicki again! Thanks!
Vicki did an outstanding job making our Dioji feel at home with her family while we were on vacation. We loved how she kept us up to date with texts and pics which in turn aloud us to enjoy our vacation even more. Would definitely recommend Vicki to anyone. Thanks Vicki

My pups loved staying with Vicki and her family. She sent me pics throughout their stay, took them on a long walk, and her two boys played with them. She was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times. She was also very patient and understanding with all of my questions. Vicki made me feel very comfortable leaving my doggies with her. We would definitely recommend Vicki for your fur babies

Vicki and her family were fantastic! Max had so much fun that he slept the entire next day. From fun boys, other dogs to play with, and cozy time with family, Vicki provides so much more than just a place to "board" your furry baby. Thank you Vicki and family - we'll definitely be coming back!

We love Vicki and Grandma Pat and the whole film! Our Sandy loves playing with the boys! She has a good time each time she stays with them. We highly recommend Vicki! Thank you!
Use Vicki S and family for your dog care. I am so pleased with the care and attention given to my beloved spoiled puppy. I was from out of town and in a bind when I found her on Dogvacay. Vicki sent little snippets of information and pictures to assure me that all was well with my pup on her 6 day stay. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Vicki and your dear lovely family.

Vicki's home is the best place for my dog, Artie. He was well cared for, walked often and I loved getting the daily updates and pictures from Vicki. I will continue to send Artie to her when I need a vacation or a day to go skiing! Thanks Vicki!

Sincerely,

Jane

Vicki S was great! Our dog Reggie had such a good time and has been worn out since we picked him up three days ago. She gave us updates regularly, even over the holidays, and made us feel very comfortable leaving Reggie with her and her family. I would definitely recommend her and we would use her again in a heartbeat!!

Vicki and her family were a great fit for our dog Sandy. She had a fantastic time and Vicki was flexible with her times. We had an early morning flight. I will be using her often in the future!
Although Pepe and Blacky were just there for one overnight they seemed very happy and I could tell they had be well cared for. I would recommend Vicki and intend to use her again. Jim
Vicki was great! My pups had an awesome time with her. They came home and were pooped! She kept me updated with pictures and texts the while time I was away. Will Definitely be returning for business!
