About Mandy

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a stay at home schnauzer mom who loves long walks in the park with my pooch!

My husband and I treat dogs we sit just like our own dog - like family. We believe in lots of toys, lots of treats and lots of love!

Treat yourself to a worry-free vacation knowing that your best friend is in a safe and happy environment! I will send you pictures and updates as often as you like.

We live in a large 3 story town home with two fully fenced and very safe outdoor spaces for your dog to run and play with our friendly schnauzer. We also have a large dog park in our neighborhood that we would be happy to take your dog to if they like to socialize!

We look forward to meeting you & your pup!

Thank you!

We have used Mandy to board our two dogs on numerous occasions. She is our "go-to" DogVacay Sitter. I highly recommend her.
Our dog Julian had a blast at his home away from home with Mandy, Wayne, and their dog Cooper. He is treated as one of the family. We appreciate their flexibility in hosting our dog at the last minute and on a holiday weekend. We highly recommend Mandy and Wayne as hosts.

Our dog Julian had another great stay with Mandy, Wayne, and Cooper. They have a nice house and are dog is made to feel right at home whether it is playing in the yard, going to the dog park or just hanging out on the couch or bed with their dog Cooper. We enjoy the pictures Mandy sends daily. I still don't know how she gets our dog to pose so nicely for the photos. Our dog looks forward to his next dog vacay and we highly recommend Mandy and Wayne as hosts.

Our dog Rupert had an amazing time at Mandy's.. He was very well taken care of and his stay could not have been better. I would definitely use Mandy again. Rupert was taken great care of and he loved spending time with her dog Cooper as well. We received pictures daily and received notifications which made us feel comfortable with the care he was receiving. We highly recommend her as a host and will be using her again in the future.

Our dog had a wonderful vacation with Mandy,Wayne, and their dog Cooper. He is treated as one of the family. We enjoy and always look forward to the pictures that Mandy sends throughout the day and can tell that our dog is happy and well taken care of. Knowing this allows us to enjoy and relax on our vacation. They also have a dog park nearby which he enjoyed running around in. We highly recommend Mandy and Wayne as hosts.

Lily, our 5 lb. yorkie, had a wonderful stay with Mandy! We were gone for 8 days & had not used Mandy before, so we were a little apprehensive. Mandy's dog, Cooper, is quite a bit larger than Lily, but he turned out to be one of Lily's greatest playmates! Mandy sent us lots of pictures while we were away of all the fun activities they were doing, reassuring us that everything was going well. Lily was well taken care of, and we would not hesitate to use her again! Im not sure Lily wanted to leave!

Mandy took my dog in on short notice and sent several pictures during his short stay. She was accommodating with drop off and pick up times. Would book with her again.
My dog Ellie had an amazing time with Mandy and her dog Cooper. She sent me lots of updates and pictures and took great care of Ellie while I was gone. Clean house, yard, and nearby dog park. Mandy also made sure to keep my dog on the same rules that I keep when at home(treats, on/off furniture, etc) Great experience and would leave my dog with Mandy anytime!

This is the 2nd time we have boarded our two Dachshunds with Mandy. We have found our favorite host and will continue to contact them for all future boarding needs.
Our dog had another great time with Mandy, Wayne, and Cooper. We really enjoyed the nice pictures and updates sent daily. We could tell that Julian was having a blast and was in good hands. We highly recommend them as hosts for your doggie vacay experience.

Mandy, her husband, and their dog, Cooper, were a perfect match for Zoe's doggy vacation. Mandy was flexible in setting up a meet-and-greet well in advance of the dates that I was interested in and remained very responsive throughout the entire experience.

Mandy and her husband have a beautiful townhome, very organized and clean, and I felt like Zoe would feel at home there. The two outdoor spaces were a major bonus because Zoe loves to be outside. There is even a dog park around the block!

Cooper and Zoe were a perfect match. They really enjoyed playing together and kept each other busy. The first day of Zoe's stay I was pleasantly surprised to receive the most beautiful photo of Zoe and Cooper on a walk at Burke Lake Park!! Throughout the weekend, I received many photos and updates and in each one I could tell that Zoe was very relaxed and happy. Zoe can be a finnicky eater, especially if she is a little stressed, but it turns out she ate very well during her stay.

Zoe takes fish oil and allergy medications and it was no trouble for Mandy to give them to her.

I highly recommend Mandy and Cooper for a doggy vacay. It was a wonderful experience!

Mandy is awesome! She recently cared for our puppy for a week and it was a wonderful experience for us. This was the first time we ever left our puppy and Mandy was very sensitive to our concerns and the needs of an energetic puppy. Brewster had a great time with Cooper and at the dog park in the neighborhood. It was clear from the daily pictures we received that Brewster was being spoiled by Mandy and loving his stay in her beautiful home. I highly recommend Mandy and will definitely use her in the future!

Max had a fantastic time with Mandy and her dog Cooper (and husband Wayne too)!. Upon seeing the first picture Mandy sent of Cooper and Max on the bed, we knew we had found the perfect spot! We received daily pictures and updates. I think Max had more fun on his dog vacay than we had! We will definitely use Mandy for any future vacation getaways. Actually, we might just let Max have a "Cooper Fix" for the heck of it! What a great experience. Thank you!

The Meet-n-Greet went great and our two Dachshunds got along with Cooper. The neighborhood is great for dogwalks and there is even a dogpark in the neighborhood!

We recently left our two Dachshunds with Mandy for 3 days. They loved the visit, and I think they even miss Cooper a little bit. Mandy was great and communicated with us before and throughout the vacay.

We definitely recommend Mandy as she will take great care of your babies and will treat them as her own.

We have already booked with Mandy again for a trip this Summer. We feel so comfortable leaving our dogs with her and look forward to enjoying a worry-free vacation.

We enjoyed all the nice pictures and updates which made us feel at ease while out of town and would not hesitate to have them as hosts again for the next vacation.

Mandy was an exceptional hostess!! Our dog was well cared for and loved while we were gone - she had such a good time with Mandy and her dog, I don't think she really wanted to leave! We looked forward to the daily updates and pictures Mandy sent. We have found our forever dog-sitter!! Thank you, Mandy!

Mandy was great. She agreed to watch both our dogs on short notice and took great care of them. Papa Gus can be a handful, but she and her dog quickly adjusted to him and made him feel at home. I will definitely consider using her again in the future.

Mandy, her husband and their dog Cooper welcomed my dog Pete with open arms and treated him like a member of their family. My 13 year old dog does not do well being kenneled and www.dogvacay.com was the PERFECT SOLUTION to my challenge of finding the right caregiver for him. I am so grateful I was able to go out of town without worrying about Pete. Mandy took the time to meet with us the day before so that we could all be sure it was a good fit. I really appreciate the delightful photos she posted so that I could see that Pete was making himself at home. I sincerely hope that Mandy will be available the next time I need care for Pete.

Mandy and her husband were amazing hosts and our pups definitely had a great time because they were completely worn out when they came home. We got so many pictures of our dogs to show us how they were doing. This was my first dogvacay experience so thank you guys so much for taking such great care of our dogs.

Mandy was a wonderful host to work with. She was very personable, easy going, and responsive to emails and messages. She made sure our dog followed the same rules we have at home, so as not to form any new habits while away. Our dog, Tiga, had a wonderful time at Mandy's home and with their dog Cooper, a friendly, happy dog. Mandy has a wonderful, pet friendly home and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a place to leave their dog. We look forward to leaving our dog with Mandy in the future!

We just picked up Charlie tonight from an extended stay with Mandy. He looked great and I could tell he had a great time there. He looked very comfortable with Mandy and in their home. Mandy was great and very accommodating. She took Charlie out on multiple walks each day and sent several pictures while we were away to let us know how he was doing. I will definitely be asking Mandy to watch Charlie the next time we need a dog sitter. Being new to the area and to Dog Vacay, it was an excellent first experience!

Mandy did a great job of taking care of Sammy! He had so much fun playing with their dog! Sammy came home happy and healthy, which is what we all want when we return home! Sammy was treated like a member of the family, and enjoyed his stay. I received updates and photos everyday which made me aware how much care he received. Thank you for a great stay and all your love for Sammy while I was gone!
