About Nancy

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My dog, Dutch (a Puggle), is such a big part of my life and has brought me so much joy. He feels like he's the king of Old Town. He has lots of friends walking around the dog friendly neighborhood, having dinner at the dog friendly restaurants/patio's, the park and the beach.

I often travel and having a good place for your dog to stay is of the upmost importance to me. A loving home for the days his mom is gone. I hope to be able to give that same home to your puppy.

We live close to Oak Street Beach and Lincoln Park where Dutch and I love to spend mornings over the weekend.

Dutch and I are happy to take your pup, who is a little older and well behaved. We live in a condo building with lots of dogs and it's important for us to have a calm dog, no anxieties when left (barking), and is friendly with other pups in the building as we will be running into a lot of them in the elevator and around the neighborhood.

Looking forward to meeting some new friends,

Dutch, woof :-)

Nancy is fantastic with my dogs! She assisted with house sitting on multiple occasions and she goes the extra distance to ensure they are well cared for. Nancy communicates throughout the time I am away to keep me connected. Her assistance makes traveling easy because I know my dogs are in good hands.
Nancy gave our little guy an adventurous, fun weekend. He was very happy with her and she sent us some of the most darling pictures of our little guy. I'd absolutely book her again!
This was our first time using DogVacay and Nancy made it such a great experience. Posey really enjoyed her stay, and we loved getting photo and video updates! We will definitely book with Nancy in the future.
I am new to Dog Vacay and Nancy was my first host. My 10-pound chiweenie Willy has some fear/anxiety issues, particularly around new people, so I was a little worried he might be a handful in someone else's care. I scheduled a meet & greet with Nancy, and right away I had a very good feeling. It was clear Nancy loves dogs and is very natural with them. Her puggle Dutch is a sweet guy and super mellow - the perfect companion for anxious little Willy. Nancy was fantastic. She kept me updated all weekend with photos and videos of Willy having the time of his life. I would 100 percent book Nancy again in the future, and I plan to. Five stars from Willy and his dad.
Nancy and Dutchy are fantastic!!! I received countless pictures throughout my trip. Not only did my dogs look happy in the pictures but the pictures she manages to capture were amazing. I would highly recommend using Nancy and I hope she is available for any trips I plan in my future.
I can't say enough nice things about Nancy! She was amazing to my shy, old dog, Annie. I was very nervous because this was my first time hiring a pet sitter. My dog is very stubborn and not really into strangers. With Nancy, I was kept in the loop with tons of photos and videos. My dog ended up having a great time, and was even a little hesitant to leave when I came to pick her up.

Medicine, treats, walks and affection were all doled out on my pup. Thank you Nancy!
Excellent! Tobs had so much fun! The picture updates were a fun addition. Thanks Nancy!
My dog loved staying with Nancy and Dutch! I have a 14 year old Shepard that usually is too nervous to eat when I am out of town. But, Nancy and Dutch made her feel so comfortable she had no problems eating. She came home exhausted from all the fun. Nancy provided constant updates with pictures and videos. I highly recommend sending your dogs on a vaccay with Nancy.
Great experience as always. Nancy is the best!
Another great stay for Brutus. He had such a good time he didn't want to come home!
Nacy was the absolute best! Brutus had so much fun with her, and I got great pictures throughout the stay. Will definitely use her for the future for Brutus. Best stay in Chicago for him yet! Casey
Thanks for taking such good care of Ferris! All the pictures were great and I'm glad you were able to take him out and around with Dutch.
Thank you!!! What a perfect pet sitting experience Charlie had on her vacay with Nancy. She was so nice, flexible, communicative, picture taker and bacon maker!! Charlie is excited to stay with nancy again!
Nancy was absolutely wonderful. First, she was really flexible and worked with us, our schedule, and other issues. She took wonderful care of our dog Daisy. Daisy had a lot of fun hanging out with her dug Dutchy, who was sweet and happy to share his house with her. Nancy sent us multiple pictures (sometimes more than one per day!) and we were so relieved to know she was in good hands. I would highly recommend Nancy to take care of your dog too :)
