About Megan

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love pets, dogs in particular, and know how important it is to feel comfortable and reassured that your pets are being well cared for while you are away. Having a dog that doesn't do well being boarded at a kennel (it completely stresses her out), I love that DogVacay provides an alternative option for pet owners.

I have a wealth of experience fostering for a variety of rescues and currently volunteer at a local shelter, so I'm very comfortable and knowledgeable about dogs of all breeds and sizes. I also have years of experience with my personal pets. I have provided insulin shots, seizure medication, feeding for a dog with megaesophagus, subcutaneous hydration and oral medication, so I am comfortable with dogs that have special needs. In addition to daily walks, we visit the dog park (Cherry Creek off leash) at least once a weekend, so if your dog enjoys that, he/she can come along too!

I live in a pet friendly condo in the Capitol Hill area of Denver. I do not have a yard, so walks are a regular part of our day. Your pet will have the opportunity for exercise, in addition to just playing. My home is extremely dog friendly and my animals are treated like part of the family. I have plenty of dog toys, extra dog beds, and treats (all natural), and of course plenty of love to share! Whether your pet likes to sleep on a dog bed, the couch or with me at night, all options are available! I can tailor my schedule and routine to meet the needs of your pet. I do not crate unless that is something your dog is already familiar and comfortable with. Both of my dogs have free roam and are not crated.

While I work during the day (M-F), I come home during my lunch to walk my dog and am home in the afternoon by 4:45 pm. I am pretty flexible and can accommodate most requests for pick-up and drop off times on the weekend, however please keep in mind when scheduling that I do work from 7-4pm M-F. The evening and weekends I would be with your pet for almost constant supervision. I don't work in the summertime, so I am available and home the majority of the time then as well.

I ask that your pets please be housebroken. I take the dogs out every 4-5 hours (if not more frequently) so they will have frequent opportunities for potty breaks. I also request that dogs be neutered. Since walks are a necessity with not having a yard, your dog must be okay using a leash to potty (I am willing to work with leash manners, pulling, etc.).

Please be honest about any behaviors your pet may have (food/toy aggression, leash aggression, destructive behavior, anxiety, reactive to certain situations and/or people, marking, etc.). It will make the experience better for all of us!

If you are looking for dog walking, I am available on the weekends (or during certain holiday breaks and the summer) and do not charge an additional fee for up to 2 dogs in the same household.

I also provide a discount for multiple dogs from the same household -$45/night for two dogs.

For more information or specific questions, please contact me.

I can provide references upon request, just ask!

Megan did a wonderful job watching my golden retriever puppy, Nala! She sent text message updates and pictures of Nala throughout the week, which really helped me enjoy my vacation. Nala was happy and healthy when I picked her up. I will definitely be booking any future DogVacay’s with Megan!

Megan is wonderful! She is very quick to respond and makes your dog feel like one of her own. Every time Megan sends a photo, Aspen looks like she is loving life. When we pick her up she has a huge smile on her face! I would highly recommend Megan.
Megan did a great job with Saydi! She sent us pics every day, and Saydi seemed rested and happy when we picked her up! Thanks!
Everything was great. She was super flexible with drop off and pick up. Sent me pictures everyday of Peanut's stay. Peanut seemed to have had a good time. Great experience all around!
Megan was super friendly and attentive, and obviously loves animals. This was the first time we had used her and couldn't be happier. She took great care of our dog and cat, and sent us lots of photos while we were gone. If we had a question she got back to us very quickly. We will use Megan for pet sitting every time, as long as she is available!

Thanks, Megan!! I appreciate your help with Maki... I know she was well taken care of over the weekend. The updates via text and flexibility with pick up and drop off times was truly appreciated!!
My pups loved staying with Megan - they even got to go to their favorite place Cherry creek dog park! I knew they were in good hands while I was away!
Bella enjoyed her time with Megan and her two Great Danes. Megan sent pictures over every day, which is always fun to see. I'll definitely be using Megan again!!
Megan is one of our favorite petsitters! She treats our Annie like she is her own. And she is very responsive. While Annie doesn't like to be away from us, she always comes back from Megan's house a happy little dog!
Sweetie loves to stay with Megan
Awesome stay!
Another great visit! Highly recommend.
Awesome visit!
Megan is perfect!
bob (my dog) stayed around 20 days with Megan. She understood my situation, because I dont speak english very well and I need to traveled Brazil for vacation.
Bob is a puppy and he couldnt go with me.
She always send me Bob's photos and always answered my e-mail.
Thanks!

Megan always takes great care of Annie! We've left her in Megan's care a few times now. Annie plays with Izzy and the other dogs Megan cares for. She is always exhausted and happy when we pick her up!
This is the third time we've left Annie with Megan. Annie always has a wonderful time. She's well-cared-for and exhausted when we pick her up (she's a tireless Vizsla, so this is success!).
Megan and Izzy were excellent hosts for my dog Buddy. I usually board Buddy, but with him being older (14 y/o) and having some recent health issues, I wanted him to have more personal attention.Megan was great with keeping me posted on how Buddy was doing. He settled in at her house and took over the couch! Izzy was great too. She is a very sweet laid back girl. I recommend checking out Megan for your dog sitting needs!

Megan is awesome! Annie loves playing at her house. We left Annie for a week, the longest we've left her. Megan was sure to send pictures of her with updates on how she was doing. She was a happy and tired pup when we picked her up. Highly recommend!

Megan took great care of our Isaac and Charlie while we were on vacation. We were not able to leave and arrive in Denver as I had expected and Megan was more than accommodating. Would definitely use her again for my two senior pups. Thank you Megan for a great stay for our pups. Made our vacation even better knowing that we did not have to worry about them and we loved the daily photos.

We had a great experience with Megan and plan to use her again in the future. We loved getting daily text updates about the animals and pictures. We came home to 3 happy animals!
This was Leo's second stay with Megan. She is great, very accommodating with our flight schedules and sends pics of how he's doing. Leo is always happy when I pick him up and he has a great time with Izzy.
Megan was great to work with and very flexible with our schedule. Our pups came home happy and tired :-)
Megan is awesome!! She is extremely flexible with drop off and pick up times and was very understanding of our dog's needs. We have a dog with a lot of energy and can be a lot of work, but Megan is always great and our dog loves it there! He comes back tired, happy and sad to leave Megan and her dog. We will definitely continue to use Megan for future trips.

Megan was awesome! She was willing to accommodate our schedule for drop-off and pick-up. She sent us a text with a picture of our Annie every evening with a note about how she was doing. Annie had fun playing with her dog, Izzy. Annie was happy to see us, of course, but I felt completely comfortable leaving her with Megan. She genuinely seems to care about dogs, and we have full confidence in her. Thanks, Megan!

Madigan seemed to have a good time with Megan and her big dog. No problems that we are aware of.
Megan was a great host for our puppies! This was the first time leaving them with someone other than family and she made it easy to trust her! We got daily updates and pictures that really put us at ease and we knew they were very happy and content with Megan. I would definitely use Megan again!

I had never done this before. Megan was great.
Megan is an awesome, Thank U, sooo much.
My experience was good with Megan. She sent pics each day. It was his first away from home visit and was anxious, but he did fine. It was nice for him to have Izzy there to play with. Especially since Izzy was the bigger dog , instead of Quincy , (German Shepherd) being the big guy.
Thanks Megan for putting up with him!!!

We had never used dogVacay before and it worked out beautifully. Megan was very responsive to emails and Buster even had friends to play with while there (Megan's dog and another vacationer!).
Great first experience with Megan! We left our two dogs for 10 days and they had a great time. Megan was always available for questions, she sent daily pictures of the dogs and was very accommodating with our drop off and pick up times. Highly recommended!

Megan was so accommodating! She was easy to reach, sent photo updates, and graciously allowed us to drop off Benny at 5:30 AM so we could catch our flight on time. And she lives super close to DIA, so it's very easy access to the airport from her house (and vice versa). She has a good backyard for dogs, so it was nice to know my little guy could go outside and be safe. All around good experience! Thanks, Megan.

Megan was great, she took Leo last minute and was flexible with him staying longer. Leo is special needs and requires daily shots, Megan had no problems with him. .
Right off the bat Leo clicked with her dog Izzie and they had a blast. Megan sent pics to show how happy Leo was. I will be using Megan from now on.
Thank you for having him.

We've left our dogs with Megan a few times now and they've always been taken great care of. She is very flexible with drop off and pickup times. Megan sends us pictures regularly and our dogs always look happy while they are there.
Megan was wonderful with Penelope. She is a very old dog and did very well with Megan....actually I am not sure she wanted to come home.
I had to fly out of DIA and left my dog with Megan. She sent me pictures and would text me updates. You could tell my dog got a lot of attention while at Megan's house. I will definitely use Megan in the future and would recommend her to somebody looking for a place to keep their dog.

Megan was great! She was very flexible with the timing of dropoff/pickups. Aleck came home happy and tired. Thanks again!
I have left Cally with Megan on multiple occasions, never having a problem whatsoever. Good communication, flexible on drop-off & pick-up, Cally always leaves very happy! Highly recommended!
Katama loved Megan and Izzy and we hope they can play again!
This was our second time with Megan and everything was great, very flexible and easy going. Jilly got sick in Megan's house and she was totally cool about it and kept me updated about how she was doing. Will continue to use Megan in the future.
Megan and Izzy were the best! Megan was extremely accommodating to our flight schedule and sent lots of updates and photos of our little girl - which makes worried pup parents very happy! We would LOVE to have our little girl stay with Megan and Izzy in the future - thanks so much:)

Megan was beyond accomodating and flexible with pick-up and drop-off times. She was easy to reach and quick to respond with updates/pictures of how our dog was doing.
Charlie had a great time with Megan and Izzy. She was exhausted when we picked her up which is a great sign she had a good time. Thanks Megan!
Megan was great and very easy to make arrangements with. Loved getting updates and Jilly has been sleeping since she got home because she had so much fun!
Megan was great! My dog Toby seemed to really have fun with her and she sent me cute pictures of him each night. Will definitely use her again!
Megan and Izzy were terrific! I travel often with work - and knowing my big guy is safe & happy is so important to me. Within the first few hours after leaving my dog with Megan, she sent me a picture of him, (sound asleep), and a note that said he's doing great. I'm sure we all wonder how our dogs are doing after we drop them off - well, I knew how Banyan was - and that meant a lot to me and allowed me to focus on my day. Izzy is a super sweet girl - I don't think my dog wanted to come home with me when I picked him up last night!

Megan's great!! She has been very accommodating with regards to my schedule, drop off and pick up. I will recommend her to my friends.
Megan was great with our dog, Milo! Our dog is a 2 year old Great Dane and she took great care of him. She even already had a crate his size. I was apprehensive of leaving him with someone since he has separation anxiety, but he did really well with Megan and her dog Izzy. Izzy seemed like a great, laid back dog and she got along great with our dog. She even texted me a picture of Milo while he was staying with her to ease our anxiousness about leaving him with someone. If I'm ever in the Denver area again there is no way I would let anyone but Megan watch my dog. Thanks again, Megan!

Megan was an absolutely fabulous host. I was working with a pretty strange schedule because I was in the middle of a road trip during my pup's one-night stay with Megan, but she fully accommodated our weird schedule.

She was gracious enough to be flexible with our late arrival time into Denver (9-10pm), and our super early departure time the next morning (6-6:30a).

Not only was she willing to work with us on the odd hours, but she even woke up early to make sure Eddy could go to the bathroom before we arrived and even took her for a walk!

I'm still so blown away with how much Megan went out of her way to make our trip as easy as possible. I would recommend her as a host to your pup for sure.

This was the first time leaving my Lab, Chase, with a sitter overnight, so I was lucky enough to find Megan! Chase has some anxiety issues I'm trying to correct, so I really appreciated the frequent pictures and updates she sent me.

I'd be happy to recommend Megan to anyone needing a pet-sitter!
