About Heather

I am a total dog lover.
My husband & I have both had only dogs for pets our entire lives.
There is almost always someone home so your dog would have human company. My dog is super friendly with other dogs & would enjoy her play dates with your pet.
Our property is large & looks & feels like a park. It is also gated & safe for any size dog.

Heather and her husband are both caring dog lovers who made my best friend feel right at home..not to mention Pumpkin their best friend and member of their family who is also a well mannered friendly gal..I highly recommend these caring people as sitters for the four legged member of your family..

Even before Heather officially watched my dog, Genny, I knew that Genny would be in good hands. We scheduled a meet-and-greet where Genny met Heather and her sweet dog, Pumpkin. Heather asked a lot of questions about Genny--her needs, her behavior--so that she could decide if it would be a good fit.
While Genny was with Heather, I received several text messages and pictures to let me know how she was doing. Genny is a senior dog, and as such, has special needs. Heather was wonderful with her and when I picked up Genny after her three-night stay, I was sure she had been given the best care. I really appreciate that Heather only cares for one or two dogs at a time (in addition to her own) so that she can give them a lot of attention. Genny was the only dog who stayed with Heather during her stay. Genny will be staying with Heather again soon, and I am sure her care will again be the best.

Heather took excellent care of my dog during her stay. I loved the property, the photos of my do actually enjoying her stay, I would definitely recommend. Miss P loved it!
Definitely 5 Stars for Heather & Pumpkin's Palace! This was Abby's second visit to see Heather, and she was extremely excited when we arrived; both to see Heather and her friend, Pumpkin. Your animal receives special care here. Questions are asked about your animals feeding schedule and habits. It feels like you are leaving them at a child care facility-not a boarding facility. It pleases me that I now have a "Go To" person to care for Abby when I am out of town!

We really love Heather and how much our dog Doodle loved her! Doodle was cared for and cuddled while we were gone for a couple weeks. Heather kept us in the loop and we felt at complete ease during our vacation. I know Doodle will enjoy staying with her again and again! Thank you Heather for welcoming Doodle in your home and making us feel so comfortable while our pup is with you!

Heather is a very nice lady and after our meet-and-greet, I felt very comfortable leaving my "babies" with her. I soon found out that, unless ones dog goes to sleep on command, they should probably not stay with Heather. My fur babies are a bit spoiled, granted, and they sleep in our bed which I did not expect from Heather. But to get texts starting within 24 hours on how they weren't sleeping and keeping her awake, when I was 500 miles away, was extremely stressful to us. I would have thought that she would have an alternative solution like putting their bed in her room on the floor, or something, since it's obvious they are used to human contact or having someone at least close by. I just find it hard to believe that every dog that has ever stayed with her goes to sleep on command, especially when they are out of their element. Also, I learned the hard way to ensure I apply a flea solution to my dogs prior to staying anywhere.

Heather and Pumpkin were great even when my dog wasn't on his best behavior. There home and yard were very inviting and dog friendly. We felt at ease leaving our little boy here.
Heather is a wonderful host! This was Maggie Mae's first stay with anyone other than my wife and I and she really seemed to enjoy it. Maggie Mae is a one year old, high energy Goldendoodle, and Heather was extremely patient and loving with her. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone who wants an experienced and caring person to look after their pet or pets when they cannot. Heather will always be my first and only choice when I use DogVacay in the future. It was great experience for both Maggie Mae and my wife and I.

Tori seemed to be at home, when we left here there she was more interested in exploring than us leaving.
Heather and Pumpkin were absolutely wonderful. Our dog Kowi had a wonderful doggie vacay. We did a meet and greet to make sure the dogs were compatible. Pumpkin is such a sweet dog. She made Kowi feel right at home. Heather and her husband are a true dog lovers. It was so great to know Kowi was having as much fun as we were on our trip. I will definitely be taking Kowi back to Pumpkin's Palace on our next trip out of town.

I fell in love with Heather she text me pic of Tommy and checked in with me just to let me know he was doing fine.... Very clean and big back yard when I picked Tommy up he was happy and excited to see me. I would definitely recommend Heather and plan on using her again if the future... Thank you Heather for caring for my dog Tommy.

Heather and her husband were the perfect hosts for my two dogs. They were incredibly flexible about pick-up and drop-off times as we were stopping on our way through Thanksgiving traffic on a camping trip to Death Valley. They have a huge yard that the dogs could run around in and a sweet rescue named Pumpkin. Even though one of my dogs, Lily, ended up not getting along with Pumpkin too well, Heather was still compassionate and kept them separated (she understood that Lily was also a rescue and had some anxiety problems) and kept us in the loop with texts and photos during the weekend. We would definitely have our dogs stay again!

We left FIDA at Pumpkin's Place for a day's stay only. He had a wonderful time. I think he is in love with Pumpkin. This is a wonderful resource for day stay or overnight or a longer stay. We are very happy and will call again for a reservation the next time we have a need. We have recommended our friends about this great place.

We are very happy with the care, love and security our little, active Terrier received at Heather's home. He was treated as one of the family by everyone including their big yellow lab who became our dog's best friend. We will certainly call again. Heather's phone is on our keep list.
