About Alicia

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello,

Your pet's security and comfort are the foundation of my service. I have over 15 years of pet sitting experience and 7 years of veterinarian technician experience. I am insured and bonded. Excellent reference's available.

Your pet will be treated with the same loving care and attention as I do with my own pets. They will be in my home with me and my dogs as if they were in their own home. We allow pets on the couches and beds, even though there are plenty of dog beds throughout the house. We do respect your wishes and will duplicate the the same rules and routine your dog has at home. I have a 1/2 acre fenced in backyard that we call the forest because we have 28 trees in natural setting. The doggies love to explore and play in this setting. Every morning we also walk about 1 mile, and take trips to the park for chucking the ball.

This was the first time our dog Luther stayed overnight at someone else's home. He did great and Alicia was good at putting my mind at ease with updates and a video. Luther came home a happy doggie! We have already booked another Vacay for December :-)

Alicia is amazing. She makes sure not only your dogs are well taken care of, but she puts your mind as ease as well. My dogs were in greats hands and we'll taken care of!
Sid was well taken care of. I have no problems recommending Alicia and would make a reservation with her again if we are in the area.
Alicia was absolutely amazing! This was the first time I had to leave my dog and I was so comfortable with her. Tucker (my dog) went to visit and was already totally comfortable. He can be timid at times as he was a rescue dog and has a hard time trusting quickly, especially men. The first night I got a picture and an update that Tucker was doing well and was snuggled on the couch with her husband. I got daily updates and I was so excited to find a place that does not crate their dogs and that Tucker could just run free! I will definitely take Tucker back! I highly recommend Alicia!

I am pleased with the entire DogVacay experience. I am particularly pleased with the care of Alicia. I appreciated the opportunity to visit here home before our scheduled DogVacay. The texted photos and brief reports were a nice touch and appreciated. My dog was much happier and relaxed than when I'd pick her up from a kennel. Thank you Alicia, we'll be back!

My pups came home happy. They stayed there for 12 days. I got updates every other day and Alicia was great at responding to my texts when I was checking in.
Alicia was great. Everything was very easy from the reservation to the drop off and pick up times. She has a wonderful yard as well as a dog friendly house. Bear came home a happy camper. Your dog is in good hands if you decide to leave him/her with Alicia. :)

I highly recommend Alicia and her family to care for your four legged furry family member.
We are repeat visitors and find her very friendly and the whole family loves their puppy visitors. Lily loves staying here and I feel good having her stay with Alicia.
Alicia has everything you want for your puppies stay. A true home away from home when you can't bring you puppy family members with you.
We'll be back!

Annie is one happy dog when she comes home from Alicia's house!
Annie loves to visit with Alicia! She always come home a very happy!
My dog, Ozzie, can be selective so I am very happy I found Alicia. She is knowledgable of dog behavior and proper dog-to-dog introductions.

We had a meet and greet that went well so a few days later Ozzie spent several hours at Alicia's home. Last week Ozzie stayed for 3 days while I was out of town. While there he spent time socializing and playing with other dogs. I could not have asked for a better experience for him.

Alicia is definitely my 'go to' person next time I need someone to take care of Ozzie.

Alicia was awesome! My pup loved her and her family. Her home was dog friendly and instantly comfortable for Canela. She was accommodating and sent pictures and text with updates. So thankful to have found her, Canela will definitely be visiting again!!

Alicia took care of all three of my dogs on very short notice when I had to make a three day business trip. She had an awesome back yard for them to go play in and did everything she could to make my dogs feel welcome and to have a good time, which is very important as our smallest dog is very anxious around new people.

Alicia and her family treated our Kora like family. We were given plenty of updates and pics of our spoiled pup...we were getting jealous! We were delighted to not worry a bit about how she was doing.
Alicia's home is very dog oriented with dog beds & couches indoors, and plenty of space for romping outdoors. She does a great job of separating other guest dogs while your dog enters and exits the home. This was perfect for Kora who gets overwhelmed easily with changing commotion.
We would highly recommend Alicia, and look forward to using her services in the future.

I feel so fortunate to have found Alicia! She is a true animal lover and took excellent care of my dog Ruby. Ruby is very wary of new people but immediately warmed up to Alicia. Dogs know best! She has an awesome property for dogs to play in and her home is totally dog oriented. Highly recommend her!!!

Archer got a ton of exercise and came home a happy tired pup!
Excellent care for my young dog. The whole family took an interest in making my dog feel welcomed in their home. I will be contacting Alicia the next time I need to leave my dog. She was in caring hands.
Alicia has watched our pup twice now and each time we were impressed with her. I feel our dog is safe and she treats him like a part of the family. We could definetly tell our dog enjoyed his stay. Absolutely would recommend Alicia.
This is the 2nd time we've boarded Zuri with Alicia. She has been fabulous with her and Zuri obviously loves her time there. Alicia also gave us a quick heads up via text about Zuri likely getting sick which was great because we were able to see the vet after picking Zuri up and start her on treatment straight away. Zuri was well cared for and we will likely bring her back to Alicia in the future when needed!

Alicia was nothing short of spectacular. I was well informed about Brodie's care throughout the week. She kept me updated via text with pictures and updates. She even showed me the friends that Brodie made!

Brodie has a special diet and she fed and treat (ed) my dog exactly as I requested. If she had any questions she immediately contacted me accordingly. I can't wait to use her again!

Her and her family are incredibly loveable and truly support every vacay they get. Their property is absolutely beautiful and can handle any dog (it's huge with lots of trees!). They exemplify the community standard of DogVacay.

This was our first time boarding our pup and we couldn't be happier with our experience. Alicia is warm and inviting - we had a great meet & greet. Her home is very dog-friendly and we felt comfortable leaving Zuri here. Needless to say, Zuri loved her stay with Alicia! She loved being around the other dogs and apparently just played the entire time we were away! We definitely recommend Alicia.

We really hit the jackpot with Alicia. I was able to actually enjoy my holiday vacation knowing that my dog had other dogs to play with, and Alicia was so active and attentive with all the pups that she cares for. I loved getting videos and pictures of them at the park playing or going on walks. I could tell my dog was happy and by the time I picked him up he was really tired. You know what they say, a tired pup is a happy and healthy pup! The first time I got to Alicia's home, you could tell how much she cared for her animals. Her home has a wonderful and huge backyard for dogs. Grizzly felt right at home and she made me feel so comfortable.

Alicia will be my first choice to leave my dog with when I can not take him with me.
