About Megan

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*Please keep in mind if our calendar shows booked it may just be for other services such as check-ins or walking. We may still have a place for your pup. Please feel free to message me with any questions!

* I am a stay at home mommy with 4 beautiful children ages 8, 6, 2 & 16. Taking care of my family and our guest pups is my full time job!

I have a child with a terminal genetic disorder. Taking care of your pets is a top priority as it allows me to be at home to care for my daughters special needs. With this in mind, please note. Meet and Greets are scheduled only for stays that are definite to minimize risk of infection due to her compromised immune system.

My husband and I are up every morning at 6am to start our day. We will take your pup for at least 2 30-60 min walks every day. Our guests are allowed free run of our home & backyard for play and exercise with the family.

We visit the dog park every weekend! (with your permission) We have a nice sized home with a large fenced in backyard for the kids and dogs to play!

Your pup should be kid and pet friendly, be house trained, up to date on all shots & have some type of flea/tick control in place such as frontline, oils or a repellant collar.

This was my first experience with dogvacay, -'f I'm so glad I found Megan! Not only she accepted my very last minute reservation, she was very patient with all my questions and texts, and had updated with pictures on how Tako was doing. It was a huge relief to find someone to take care of Tako, especially with his separation anxiety. And it was great and comforting to know that Tako was never alone as her kids are always around to play with him. I would highly recommend Megan to anyone!!

Millie seemed happy and healthy when we picked her up. She generally loves kids and she probably enjoyed her time with Megan's kids. Megan sent us pics and msgs which is always reassuring especially since Millie has anxiety issues and I always worry how she will settle with strangers when we are away. Thanks Megan!

This was my dog Annies' first experience with Megan B. Annie had a wonderful time. Megan was terrific with her. She was there for five days. Megan emailed me a photo. It made me feel so good. I am hoping to have a second great visit soon.
Snowflake stayed at Megan's home twice. Every time I went to pick her up, she was always happy and clean. Megan always sent me snowflake's pictures when I was on vacation. She looks so cute with two beautiful and adorable little girl. I am sure she had a good time staying there.

Megan was great with Parker. He went to her two days in a row - and he was so excited to go back the next day.
Teddi (Theodora) appeared to be very happy with her stay with Megan and family. Megan was accommodating to our schedule and seemed to really care about Teddi. She even washed Teddi's bed at the end of the stay. One issue that we did have is that we'd left a number of Teddi's things with Megan and when we picked her up, Megan gave us Teddi plus a bag of her things. However, the bed was still in the dryer and we didn't notice till we got home that Teddi was without her bed.

My dog is always happy when he shows up at Megan's house. His tails wags a mile a minute and he doesn't even say goodbye to me! I love that he spends the time with a family and another dog. He loves the fenced in yard and all the attention. It's a win-win for both of us:)

Bailey had another great stay! She loves Megan and family! She can't wait to visit again!
This is the second time Megan dog sat for me. The first time she came to my house to feed Emma and my sister's dog. It worked out so well I decided to have Emma stay overnight at Megan's house this time. It worked out great,I dropped Emma off and right away she seemed at home. Megan sent text messages with cute pictures of Emma looking very relaxed. When I came to pick Emma up Megan's children were playing with her, from what I could tell she really seemed to enjoy them and her stay at Megan's house. I really like this concept over using a kennel.

I've struggled with writing this review ever since we returned home. I don't want to negatively impact someone's income. On the other hand I am an animal lover; and I feel like I need to be honest so that everyone can use this website to find a truly good caretaker.
From the beginning to end of my interaction with Megan I had just a general concerned, bad feeling. I tried to ignore it because there so many good reviews and feedback on her page. I also did not have the time to find other arrangements. When I arrived at her house she was not very friendly. The first thing she said to us was basically oh you're here, we're not ready. I had been messaging her prior to our arrival. She asked when we would be coming and I responded. We arrived 3 1/2 hours later, in the middle of the afternoon. There was another dog there at the time and I thought that would at least be positive for our dog to have a playmate. So we left our dog with all her favorite toys, her food, her leash and hoped for the best. The whole ride to the airport I had a strange feeling and was not at all comfortable.
While I was away (in Europe) I did not have access to my phone or computer, so I did not receive the pictures or messages she sent, much. Megan had stated that this is her source of income, and she is always home with the pets. At some point she sent me a picture of a small hole our dog had supposedly chewed in their couch, not their couch in their home, but one that looked to be used for the dogs or something else since it was in a back room next to a dog crate. This was concerning for me for multiple reasons. I have had my dog since she was 3 months old, during that time she has NEVER not even once chewed anything in our homes, or even chewed up her toys. I considered it a blessing and a rarity for a puppy. To this day she has still never chewed or destroyed a single thing in our home. So, when she tells me that this has happened in her care, it leads to me believe that she was not in fact taking care of my dog, or paying attention to her. Or perhaps was hoping we would compensate her for this "accident" that I don't believe was caused by my dog at all, but possibly one of the multiple other dogs in her care.
We communicated that we would be home around 9pm and she stated that this was too late. I was very unhappy with this, someone refusing to let me come pick up my dog at a pretty reasonable time. We told her we would be there first thing in the morning. When we got there she tried to give us someone else's dog bed. She did not have our dogs leash or any of her toys! She also did not really care about finding them. At this point we just wanted to get our dog and go far far away. When we got home the bag that she gave us had the last of her food, someone else's dog bowls and our dog's sweater which she told us was clean. The sweater was soaked in pee and I'm not sure whose pee it was.The WORST experience I have had. I would never recommend this person to watch your dog.

Charlie, my dog, had a wonderful time at Megan's. He made a few new friends to ring in the year. Thanks again!
Megan really helped us out when we needed someone to watch our two dogs (at our house) for a last minute funeral being held out of state. Since we were going to be gone nearly 12 hours that day we needed multiple visits. Megan happily came to our house FOUR times in to make sure our dogs were fed, happy, and had potty breaks! Before sitting for us Megan even came by the house to meet our two dogs so they would already know her when she came the next to sit. Megan even sent us pix of the pooches during the day so we knew they were in good hands. You can tell Megan loves her furry clients!

This was the first time that we left our dogs with anyone. Megan made us feel that our dogs would be treated like her own and members of her family. Megan definitely delivered. The dogs seemed to have a great time with Megan's kids. We would definitely use Megan again.

Very nice family, took great care of my dog and even sent photos during his stay.
Sadie had a great time with Megan and Family!
My pup loves Megan's family! Bailey is truly one of the family when she is there! Definitely our #1 pick for overnight care for Bailey!!! Great experience!
We boarded our 4year old Poodle mix with Megan and her family for 3 nights. She was easy to approach even though it was truly a last minute reservation, was wonderful and friendly with all of us.Our dog Rambo loved his stay there with her girls, looked happy when I picked him up and I could see that he was treated well there by the way he said her goodbyes to her.Megan provided us with lots of photo updates through his stay there and I would definitely board Rambo with her again.

Megan was great! Our 5 month old Golden Retriever puppy enjoyed a wonderful day with Megan and her family. We received lots of pictures of our puppy. Megan and family are EXCELLENT! Highly recommended!
Megan was terrific. I left my 2-yr old shepherd to be watched for a full day of moving, reserving just a day before, and Megan was very thoughtful and accommodating. More tellingly, my dog looked very happy when I returned, despite typically having separation anxiety when I'm away. I highly recommend Megan.

She provided a high quality of care and love for my Bailey! I will definitely leave my pup with Megan in the future! VERY PLEASED!

Our Newfoundland enjoyed her time with Megan and family. Megan emailed lots of pictures of our dog playing with her kids and going on walks with her big dog. Megan has a nice fenced backyard and dog-friendly home. She gave our dog her medicine (no easy task) and everything seemed to go smoothly.
