About Harriett

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are retirees who offer a pet friendly home with a doggie door, two huge fenced yards, (treated for the prevention of fleas and ticks) and lots of room to romp and run, with 24/7 supervision. Wee pups are kept separated from the larger pets in a yard of their own with double fences around the bottom ~ no digging out by large or small! (The number one feature though, is tons of love. ) No pets are ever left unattended., either! Our pups, Coco and Matilda, delight in having playmates and your pet will be treated with the same affection and attention given to our own. Our daily walks are in a quiet and safe environment on a "No Outlet" street, our favorite game is "fetch," with multiple toys so no dog is left out, and both my spouse and I participate in the "care & share" of your precious pet. You get two sitters for the price of one and between the two of us, you also get about 60 years of experience with love for, and taking care of, animals.

While visiting with us, your pup will not be exposed to many pets, as we try to limit our bookings to two dogs, in case there is a sibling. By limiting the number of pets, we have more time to devote individual attention to our furry friends.

The floors are "puppy proof;" and the their beds, crates and blankets are always kept in clean and sanitary conditions to prevent the harboring of germs. Toys are washed in a hot, cleansing solution after each visit, and treats are organic; given only with your approval, of course. Additionally, we offer freshly cleaned and sanitized, comfy beds, kennels/crates the pups can use on a voluntary basis only (unless you want them in one at night) so you won't have the hassle of having to take down and carry over your own. We can also customize rates for extended stays for one dog, or two! They sleep in our master bedroom with us ~ no separation into kennel rooms for our guests ~ they are "family!"

I worked in the medical profession for 18 years and Larry is a retired Hurricane Hunter Pilot/NASA Engineer, so between the 2 of us we offer many years of experience staying calm in an emergency or tense situation. It is just something that comes naturally with us.

So, make your plans with peace of mind, knowing your faithful companion(s) will be in a safe, healthy, and loving environment.

Finally, please do not hesitate to contact us, or Dog Vacay, for any additional information. No question need go unanswered with your precious pets.

Pawsome doesn't even begin to describe this wonderful family!! Golly and Zerxy had a FaBuLoUs time. First time ever have I picked up our boys from a sitter and they were not stressed from the experience. Thank-you Harriett for loving our boys!!
You can't do better! Our two Boston Terriers were very Happy, healthy, clean, and safe... and spoiled. Harriett is excellent. She went way beyond just attending to the basic needs.
My wife usually worries a lot about our pets through our vacations. She has a hard time relaxing over leaving them with anyone. After we met Harriett and dropped off our dogs, my wife really didn't question if they were going to be ok. It was a very nice experience. Thank You Harriett!
Harriet and Larry are WONDERFUL people. They loves our dogs as much as they live their own! (I think Harriet spoils them worst than we do!) I NEVER worry about my babies while they are under her care. Matter of fact, if she is booked for the dates we need, we change our plans for the date she has opened!!!
Harriet took great care of my dog! I couldn't have found a better person to take care of her. I didn't have to worry about my dog during my vacation because Harriet kept me updated with many pictures. My dog can't wait for the next time I go out of town!
Harriett was very nice and I could tell she really loves dogs.Had no worries knowing she was taking excellent care of them.Would recommend her highly.
Simply outstanding! I have a beautiful 3-year old German Shepherd (Sofie) who had never been apart from me for over 1 week. I was going to be out of town for three whole weeks, and needed a place for Sofie to stay. After reading the reviews on Harriett from Dog Vacay, I decided to make my reservation with her.

And Harriett was awesome!! She lived up to every review, and then some! She sent me updates and photos of Sofie daily. She brushed her regularly and played with her a bunch. She even cooked Sofie some chicken and beef every now and then when Sofie wouldn't eat her regular food. And, when Sofie's food was close to running out, Harriett went out and purchased more food for her- her exact dog food brand, which isn't easy to find!

Harriett clearly loved Sofie and treated her as her own. Sofie also had a wonderful time there. She got to meet some chickens, and hang out with Harriett's sweet dogs. And Harriett has a wonderful fenced back yard that Sofie enjoyed.

At first I was nervous to have Sofie apart from me for so long, but it turns out I had nothing to worry about. Harriett truly treats her dog guests like family, and puts everything into their comfort, safety, and happiness. I would definitely use her again- and would recommend her to all of my friends!!
As always, Harriett took great care of our beloved pup!
Harriett was great as always!! Lilly is always happy there!!! Thanks!!!
Our Ellie is still just a puppy at 6 months old. We traveled to Europe for 2 weeks and couldn't take her with us. That's a long time to be away from our girl. But, we knew she was in great hands with Harriett. Harriett sent us pictures daily which helped reassure us that our Ellie was enjoying herself. Harriett also sent emails and texts telling us how Ellie was getting along with the other pets and how she was eating and sleeping well. This was so helpful and really allowed us to relax and enjoy our vacation with no worries about our girl. I could tell that Ellie was missing her friends at Harriett's after we got home. I will definitely use Harriett in the future. In fact, I'm late writing this and I already did use her again.
Harriet took very good care of our Gracie. We were updated daily with emails and pics while we were away. It was such a relief to know our fur baby was happy and doing well. I will definitely book Gracie again when I go out of town. They are the BEST!
The best decision we made, Mrs Harriet and Mr Larry are true gems. Truly trust our baby (chi chi), with them completely.
My dogs love this place!
Harriet and Larry were great as usual ! I highly recommend them if you are in the Memphis area and need someone you can trust to leave you pup with!
Harriet is great! She sent us updates with pictures and our dogs loved her! When we brought them home they were so tired from all the playing they did all weekend! We are using her again for sure!
As always, Harriett and Larry do a wonderful job babysitting my furbaby Mardi. As much as I hate leaving him, it makes me feel better knowing he is in such good hands and getting the comforts of a loving home while I'm gone. I always enjoy getting the daily photo and video updates too! Harriett and Larry are just the best!
Harriett took excellent care of my German shepherd on short notice and I will definitely use her again next time I travel!
This was Boo and Sadie's second stay with Harriett. Boo was especially excited when we got to their home and they both were well cared for. We have been very happy with their care.
Lilly's stay with Harriett was great. This is the second time we've had our boston terrier energy ball stay with her while we took a short trip. She always keeps us updated with comments and pictures and Lilly couldn't be happier. Lots of play time and attention given, no doubt. She even let us pick her up late on a Sunday night! Awesome and highly recommended.
My daughter and I AND the pups were all welcomed into their home. We all received a tour of where the pups would be staying. They were introduced to the other resident and visiting pups. We received daily messages with pics so we could keep up on our doggies. :D
Will definately use again!
It was outstanding!!!!! She made us feel welcome from the first moment of emailing her and talking with her on the phone. Not to mention when we went by to check out her facilities. She is the first that I would try to use next time that Cynder needs to stay.
Harriett was absolutely wonderful! This was the first time we had left our furry kids with anyone other than family so we were very anxious. We received daily updates and photos and reassurance that they were doing well. I will not hesitate to have them stay with Harriett in the future.
Harriett and Larry did an excellent job and sent me daily updates. I would definitely have them dogsit for me again and would recommend them to anyone!
I am so appreciative of the attention and care that my dog was shown during her stay with Harriett. This was definitely the full 5-star experience. My dog was extremely well cared for, and I received great updates. This home is clean, dog-friendly and filled with love. I was able to enjoy my time away knowing that my dog was in great hands.
Harriett is awesome! We immediately felt comfortable with her! She treated our little guy like he was on vacation. She allowed us to call daily for updates and really kept my 9 year old son from worrying about his best friend. Baxter even got a gift to bring home with him. He definitely will want to see her again.
We were so please with Harriet's care of Lilly. We received updates and pics of Lilly playing with Coco. Lilly was very happy while she stayed there. We highly recommend them and will definitely use them in the future.
Our experience with Harriett was great! We would definitely recommend her to others.
We had to leave for a trip on very short notice. Harriett was also out of town helping a relative with Tornado clean up. We contacted her and she came home in time for us to drop our puppies of with her and her husband Larry.

They were very nice folks and had a big backyard for the doggies to explore (and was fenced and safe). They have a chicken pin next to the backyard play area that our doggies were enthralled by.

Harriett emailed us pictures of them playing every day and went out of her way to update us on them. That little touch provided smiles for us everyday we were gone and reassured us that they were having a great time.

We will definitely call Harriett and Larry again for future 'dog vacays'.

Thanks ya'al!

Harriett was awesome, we have been searching for someone to keep our baby Chi Chi. She has a hard time with separation anxiety. Harriett and Larry cared for our baby like we would. They are very loving and caring. Very special people. Love them dearly. I thank them so much for being so loving and caring.
Our first time using DogVacay and initially we were a little apprehensive but from the start it was clear that our dog was in great hands... Cannot say enough good things about Harriett and Larry L.... The experience for us and our dog was OUTSTANDING and we recommend them highly without reservation... They not only communicated with us but they even took the time to send us a picture of our dog as he played in their spacious fenced in yard... THANK YOU AGAIN!!!! You made our stay in your area very pleasant...
Harriett and Larry took great care of our 5-month- old puppy Lucy! They even agreed to keep her on Thanksgiving day!! They treated her as well as they would treat their own dog. We didn't worry one second about her being in good, caring hands!
Harriett (and her husband) were wonderful caretakers for my 12 week old puppy. Harriett genuinely cared about my little dog and spent most of her day playing with her, walking her, etc. She even bought her a new toy! I was so happy to have a home environment for my young dog.
