About Sara

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Playtime Paradise Resort where dogs come to vacation!!!

My home offers plenty of room indoors plus a large fenced back yard--perfect for play time & relaxing. I am a dog loving person who will take the time to make your dog(s) feel extra special.

I specialize in personalized attention to your four legged best friend. My playful yet friendly dogs will show your dog a great time in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. I look forward to taking good care of your family member like one of my own.

According to your preference, I will always keep you up to date with photos,emails and/or texts during your dog's stay. I understand your desire to know that all is well and that your dog is having a great time!

I prefer to accept only 2 guests at a time so I can guarantee your dog will receive plenty of one on one attention. It's safe to say your dog will be spoiled rotten and loved like one of my own.

I always require a Meet n Greet prior to your first reservation. I feel this is important for the dogs and owners to ensure everyone is comfortable and happy. Your dog's safety & well being is my number one priority!

All dogs need to be current on vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick control. My dogs have had the dog flu vaccine. It is highly recommended that my guests be vaccinated as well. A current copy of your dog's vet records is required.

If you are a past guest and see that my calendar is booked please send me a message about your dates.

Sara is fantastic! She looked after our two French Bulldogs for a week and we had peace of mind during our entire vacation. We received updates regularly and pictures of them having fun. Sara has two sweet Golden Retrievers that play well with all of her four-legged guests. While you're away, your pets will want to stay with Sara!!

We have always felt our dogs are very safe at Sara's. We know both Kayla and Henley love staying with Samson and Coco and getting Sara's personalized attention. For our pups it's definitely a great vacation. Sara was able to accommodate our pups in a stress free as we were moving from the area. When we come back to visit our pups will definitely stay with Sara. I wish we could bring Sara and her whole family with us. Sara, we all miss you!

Yes, Sara was "pawsome" again! Torrey's stay with Sara in January went so well, we took advantage of a chance to take a 2 week vacation and again we were so comfortable. We used to take Torrey everywhere, but it wasn't as relaxing as it is when we know his life is not disrupted by travel and he has such a steady routine with Sara. You are truly "pawsome"!! Thank you, Sara.

This was going to be a really long vacay, and we were going to be out of the country, but I felt so comfortable because every time Torrey stayed with Sara he was always a happy dog. I think because he is an "only dog" he really likes being part of Sara's pack with Coco and Samson. When we returned, he was once again a "Happy Dog."
Thank you, Sara!!!

Our dog loves staying with Sara. She's an excellent caretaker for our dog and treats her like a queen. We will certainly be back.
Another great experience with Sara - she treats our girls like her own. We will definitely be back....soon!!
Sara and her 2 canine companions made Katie feel welcome and loved. I will be booking more Dog Vacays with Sara in the near future. Thank you, Sara!
Sara was absolutely wonderful with our dog (who can be anxious in new atmospheres). She was great with communication - sending us updates and photos to let us know he was doing well and happy. She made him feel right at home and welcome in her house - we will absolutely use her the next time we're in need of a dog sitter.

As always, a great experience for our girls, and us as well...we always know that Maddie and Charlotte are in good hands with Sara - she definitely treats them like one of her own. We already have our next trip booked with her and plan and many more visits in the future!!

Yet again, another spectacular stay with Sara and Tom! So great to have peace of mind that Nadia gets a vacation the same time we do.This is truly her "home away from home"!
Henley had another fantastic stay with Sara & Tom. We were put at ease by the many updates we received throughout his stay by way of photos and texts. We love how Sara and Tom keep us informed about Henley's stay. Henley feels very comfortable at their house. We feel that he is safe and sound residing with them.

Thank you once again, Sara & Tom!

As always - my girls had a great stay with Sara & Tom. Received an update at least once a day with photos. We know that Maddie and Charlotte are well cared for and we will definitely be back!!
It was very hard for us to leave our pup, Henley. This was his first time away from home overnight. Sara and Tom put us at ease at the meet and greet. Their house is safely set up with all the comforts a pup needs. Sara & Tom took fabulous care of our dog! Their large enclosed backyard is a perfect place for playing with Samson and Coco. Henley got lots of exercise. They loved and treated our pup as if he were their own, even letting him sleep with them. We were sent many photos and text updates throughout our time away. It was easy to see Henley was enjoying his vacation. We both highly recommend them, as does our dog Henley! He will definitely be vacationing at the Playtime Paradise Resort again.

Once again, Sara & Tom took great care of our dog. Our dog is happy and stress free while staying with them. I love getting updates and pictures during the stay. I will be using them again.
Sara and Tom are great sitters; our pups can be a handful. Sara and tom took great care of them; the daily updates and pictures were great and it helped us relax on our vacation knowing they were well taken care of. We will definitely use Sara and Tom again.

Tremendous experience for Rudy, as well as Rudy's family! Sara and Tom were gracious caregivers to Rudy and so accommodating to our family. Thank you so much for everything!
This is the second time Sara and Tom has watched our beloved Cockapoo Poobear! I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a trusted and reliable caregiver for their beloved pooch!! Sara sends updates and pictures consistently so you can be rest assured that your extended family member is in good hands while your on vacation. Poobear got along with both her dogs and seemed to really enjoy their companionship during his stay. Thank you both for taking such good care of our little guy!!! Elisa and Scott Baxa

Another absolutely wonderful stay for our girls with Sara & Tom. They are always well taken care of and came home happy, healthy and tired from all of the playtime!! They'll be back for sure!!
Sara & Tom are wonderful with our two girls...they definitely treat them like family and go out of their way to make them happy and comfortable. We already have our next trip booked - we never worry when Maddie & Charlotte are with Sara & Tom!!
Annie had a great time again! Sara and Tom gave me updates on how she was doing, and she was thoroughly tired when we got home. Thanks for all your help again!!:)
Sara and Tom were great with Annie! We have stayed with them three times so far, and every time they send pictures and have a tail waggin good time. Cocoa and Sammy are also really great dogs and get along with Annie.
Outstanding visit as always! Sadie barks and gets excited when we turn on the street into their neighborhood. It's always fun and reassuring to receive photo updates. She has always been happy every time she has visited. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed in this experience for their dog! This host adheres to high standards and always keeps the owners informed about other guests who are staying at their home at the same time. We will be back! You should be too!

Sara and Tom are the best - they treat our dogs like their own and we never worry about them....we know they are in good hands and we always receive pictures and updates via text and email so we know how they are doing....
Always a great stay for Nadia! Great photos and updates, we love the routine she gets in with Sara and Tom. She comes home so happy and relaxed, just like she's had a vaca from us! Thank you for another great stay =)
Sara & Tom were great with Annie! She had so much fun with Cocoa and Sammy too! She was one tired pup! Thanks for all the fun!
This was Torrey's second stay with Sara and Tom, and it was even better this time because Torrey remembered Sara & Tom and Sam & Coco. As before, they were excellent hosts, and would recommend them and look forward to seeing them again. Thanks Sara & Tom.

Maddie and Charlotte had a great stay with Sara and Tom - they kept us updated with texts, emails and Facebook updates. We never worry about the girls when we are away now that we have Sara and Tom to look after them.
Sara and Tom were great. They were friendly and caring. I could tell by the pictures they sent that my dog was having a good time and was happy in their care. I will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them.
Another amazing stay! It's honestly like dropping her off to family, thanks guys!
Sara and Tom were great. We can't thank them enough for their understanding and personalized attention to our persnickety pooch. We will definitely visit them again.
Ryder and Oakley LOVED staying here! They reported back to me that their every need was met and then some! Sarah kept me up to date, provided pictures and reports and my two boys came home happy! They keep asking when they can go back...I'm trying not to take it personally. Thank you so much for taking care of my Boston Boys, Sarah and Tom!

I was nervous about leaving Bailey for the first time with non family. Sara and Tom put my mind at ease. They treated Bailey as one of their family. She enjoyed herself tremendously. It was a relief knowing she was in good hands. The daily notes with pictures was a plus. I would highly recommend Sara and Tom to my friends. Thank you!

Can not say enough good things about Sara. Totally trust her and my dog enjoys her spoiling. My dog may not want to leave in the future from her house. I would highly recommend her.
Another great stay with Tom & Sara! Nadia was thrilled to hop in the car and get a vacation weekend with her favorite second family. Thanks so much for taking care of Nadi again!
Sara and Tom take great care of our girls - there were a few days when we couldn't check in, but our minds were at ease since our dogs were with Sara and Tom. Sara sent tons of pictures of Maddie and Charlotte enjoying their time with Coco and Sam, as well as lounging with the humans. We know that they are in great hands when we are away and we will be back!!

Ainsley just got home from her second stay with Sara and Tom. They have a nice house and fenced backyard for Ainsley, and two of their own dogs who are very friendly. She seems like she had a great time, and my wife and I really appreciated the steady stream of pictures and status updates. We will definitely continue to use Sara and Tom!

This was a last minute, unexpected stay, Sara & Tom were both super flexible and thoughtful to help us out of a sticky situation! Thanks so much for your understanding and care with both Nadia and us.
Another great stay, nothing more to say! Thanks for treating Nadia like a princess.
Another great vacation for Nadia! Tom and Sara are the only people we trust with her. They really make her one of their own and she absolutely adores them, Coco and Sam. Couldn't ask for a more flexible and caring couple to take care of our pup when we are out of town! From cuddling on the couch with her, to giving her goodies, truly treating her as a member of the family. Thanks again so much guys!!

Another great stay with Sara & Tom. As always, the girls had a wonderful time and came home worn out from playing with Coco & Sam. We will be back!!
Doggie Vacay with Sara & Tom was great! We set up a brief meet & greet and I knew Bruno would be well cared for in a clean environment. He had a great stay and I got several updates on how he was doing. Bruno was nice and tired out from playing with their dogs! I would definitely use Sara & Tom again.

Sara and Tom are great hosts - our girls were well cared for and we received daily updates on how their stay was going....we love having piece of mind when we are away from our dogs. We will definitely use Sara and Tom in the future!!
Another great stay!! Could not be more happy, Nadia had another fantastic weekend with Sara and Tom. Thanks guys!
Sara and Tom were awesome. I felt like Axl was in great hands the entire time. Sara is great at giving updates all day long so that you don't have to worry. She even invited the neighbor dog over to play so that my guy would be fully exhausted when we picked him up. They were great and getting Axl to eat.....which is tough even for us. I definitely would recommend them to others and hopefully they will let Axl come back in the future.

I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about Sara! She is so great with our dog Nadia, she sent updates and photos, plus, when Nadia got home, she was so tired from all the fun playtime that she slept all day! We can;t see leaving our baby with anyone else now that she's stayed with Sara and Tom. They have a guest for life!

Everything went so great...from the initial "Meet & Greet" to the pick up! Sara & Tom set my mind at ease, made Molly feel welcome and loved. They were great about sending pictures and texts letting me know what Molly was up to while we were away.

Molly had a fantastic time! Came home happy and tired!

I would use them again in a heart beat!

Sara is the best dog sitter you will ever find. We had a meet and greet with Sara to see if our dog Hailey and her dogs would get along. Sara's, home was wonderful. She has a huge back yard for Hailey to run around and all the comforts of home, so Hailey felt very comfortable. Sara asks for a lot of details, Medical records, feeding schedule, etc, etc, which was important, so we were all on the same page. Sara texted updates to us 2 to 3 times a day with pictures of Hailey having a good time. If you want your pooch pampered Sara is it. Couldn't ask for anyone better to take care of our Hailey. She is our sitter for now on!!!!!! Thanks Sara.

As always, Sara and Tom were so great to Ziti! She sure does love going over there! Thanks again for the last minute stay. You guys are the best!!
Our stay was Pawsome. We left our dog with Sara and Tom for a full week. I was very impressed with Sara on how she had her own dogs meet my dog. All dogs are on leash and then they go on a walk to get familiar with each other. Then they play in a fenced back yard. This is the way to do it. She kept me updated during the week and my dog came home happy and tired. I would definitely recommend her.

I can't thank you two enough for taking such great care of Ziti while we were on a long vacation! Sara was always letting me know how Ziti was doing and sending pics/videos of her. Much appreciated!
Our flight was delayed coming home and we had to stay an extra night. Sara told me not to worry and she would love to have Ziti another night. We were so grateful for that!
As hard as it was to leave our Ziti for so long, Sara and Tom made it easier for us, knowing she was constantly in good care.
We feel so lucky to have found such good people to watch Ziti for us!
Thank you!!!

Ziti's first stay went great!! Sara kept us updated on how she was doing throughout the day and sent us pictures. I am so happy to have found great pet sitters that I can leave Ziti with and feel 100% comfortable. Thank you Sara and Tom!!
Sara and Tom were AWESOME pet-sitters and took great care of our girls. They treated our dogs like they were their own and they went out of their way to make sure they were comfortable away from home. We received several updates and pictures while we were gone - we never worried about their care. We would definitely recommend Sara and Tom to anyone, and we are already planning our dogs' next stay with them.

Sara and Tom were wonderful! It was the first time I was leaving Vienna and was a little nervous on how she would be. Sara gave me daily texts, pictures and even video to let me know how she was doing. It allowed me to relax on vacation knowing Vienna was with a loving and caring family:) I would recommend Sara and Tom to anyone and will definately be having them watch Vienna next time we go out of town.

Thanks again!

We chose Sara and Tom to take care of our 6 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback when we went out of town for vacation. From the very first visit our minds were put at ease with leaving our young pup with Sara and Tom. They have 2 of their own very sweet dogs that our pup got along beautifully with. Our energetic pup needs a lot of exercise so it was perfect that Sara and Tom have a large fenced in back yard, as well as going for walks to tire her out. Sara sent email updates about how our dog was doing, along with pictures of the dogs playing together. We would definitely choose Sara and Tom again to watch our dog if we go out of town!

This is Otis's second stay with Sara and Tom and I can tell you Otis thinks he's part of the family now. They catered to his every need (and believe me, Otis has lots of needs) and kept me informed of how he was doing in my time away. The canine and feline hospitality provided by Sam, Coco and Hobie was unparalleled and I can tell Otis is missing his friends!! Otis looks forward to his next stay, and I am grateful for such fantastic care he gets while he's there!

My Otis LOVED his stay with Sara and Tom - and their dogs and cat too! I was concerned that Otis would be a bit needy being a rescue, but Sara and Tom were great with him and treated him as if he was one of their own! They have a wonderful home that's so very inviting and an equally wonderful yard. It is so clear to me that they LOVE the dogs - and I loved getting texts and photos sent to me during Otis's stay. Without a doubt, the dogs come first and the care is just outstanding! Otis will stay with Sara and Tom whenever I need to travel and I KNOW he's looking forward to his next visit! Thank you both for giving me peace of mind that my dog (ok, he's my kid) is in the best possible hands when I'm away!!

Abby had a great time visiting Samson and Coco. She was actually a bit sociable with the other dogs. She came home in great shape, ready for a nice nap. We would use Sara again for watching Abby.
Sara and her husband are great sitters; this is the second time we have used them in the past few months and once again they did an excellent job caring for our dogs. I would highly recommend Sara as a sitter and will definitely use her again.
Sara is a true dog lover and also very knowledgeable about their "Idiosyncrasies". She kept us informed in both text and photos while apart. He seemed very happy to see us but rather reluctant to leave his vacation hosts!
Sara was a fantastic sitter for my dogs. She responded promptly to my inquiry and quickly set up a meet and greet. She updated us during our vacation and made sure our dogs were well taken care of. The dogs came home happy and healthy; we will definitely be using Sara again. We were extremely happy with her as a sitter and the DogVacay experience.
