About Heather

Welcome! I have been caring for dogs for over 10 years and love all breeds and sizes. I would love to care for your fur baby while you are away. I have one adorable cocker spaniel named Kaluha who is our little princess and super spoiled. I have a 4 year old munchkin so must be good with kids. I am available for boarding or in home visits throughout the day for walks and playtime. I would also be able to take your pup to dog park,vet or grooming appointments if needed. Extra services like watering plants, mail or garbage takeout are available as well.

I have very open availability and can accomodate on short notice. Looking to board your pup for the holidays? I am available! New clients use this link https://dogvacay.com/pro/puppyresort to get $10 off your first booking with me.
We can't wait to meet you and your fur babies! :)

We recently moved to NC and had a family weekend trip planned but we didn't know anyone that could look after our dog Murphy. Thankfully I looked up DogVacay and found Heather! Murphy was so well looked after and much preferred being in a 'home from home' environment than boarding kennels. Heather kept in touch with pics and texts to put our mind at rest and she made sure he took his medication for his heart which he needs 3x daily. So grateful and thankful to have found Heather and wouldn't hesitate to re-book with her!

Heather was awesome! She sent me daily updates!
Heather has kept our Morkie, Zoey, at her own house twice (each time for a week) in the recent months. In addition, she came to our house, fed our cat, Bella, gave her medicine AND gave the bearded dragon, Bob, blueberries everyday! While at the house, she had to diligently search for Bella's new hiding places (not an easy task!), bring in the mail and water plants. What an awesome and reliable new friend we have with Heather! I often received texts on the status of the pets as well a cute pictures! Heather is super nice, gentle, and Zoey loves her! We can go away and know that our pets are truly taken care of and loved! Thanks Heather!

Heather was great. Nice home, great back yard. She kept us informed and sent a few pictures which kept us from worrying. We could tell our little Maggie felt comfortable and happy while we were away. We highly recommend Heather.
Callie came home after our nearly 2 week vacation completely revitalized and didn't skip a beat after getting home. Heather took great care of her while we were away and we are very grateful for her love and attention. It also helped Callie to have a human pint size companion in her son, it seems, since all she wants to do is play fetch with her toys hours on end (which she never did before we left)!

Would definitely recommend to any dog owner who wants the best for their pet.

Heather was a great host and took good care of Pete.
Shadow is missing spending time with Heather.
Findley just loves staying with Heather. The pictures she always sends really put my mind at ease.
Findley loves staying with Heather and her family. Knowing that he is happy and well taken care of makes my own vacation so much more relaxing!
Heather was so kind to layla-our dog!
Our beagle lab, Tetris, really enjoyed his stay at Heather's. When he came home, he was absolutely pooped, so he must've been active and had a lot of fun. Heather was really accommodating of our schedule and responsive to our questions. Will definitely have Tetris stay here again!

My pup always feel comfortable and loved at Heathers.
She's the best!
Findley just loves staying with Heather and her family. It really is like a fun vacation for him! I wouldn't bring him anywhere else!
Heather is amazing! my little baby had the best time with her and her family. He was calm and tired when I picked him up! And I received pics and updates during the day.
I can't express my gratitude enough for Heather and her family. She takes incredible care of my 1 yr old Frenchie and she truly cares about every dog that comes through her door as if they were her own. I must say that Brody deserves great credit as well for providing my pup with ample attention and activity. Thank you for all that you do, Heather

I gave the "overall experience" three stars, but I give Heather and her family FIVE STARS. Three stars "overall" because administratively, DogVacay continues to find themselves unable to provide a receipt in what would be considered anywhere else to be standard format: in one place, on one document, a record of who provided the service, to whom, on what dates, how much was paid, and when.

Heather was great! She was easy to communicate with to plan pick up/drop off, sent pictures of Liebchen to us while we were away, and Liebs was clearly happy and well taken care of when we picked her back up!
I have been very happy with each and every one of Gracie's stays with Heather and her wonderful family. I feel very lucky to have them here!
As usual, CoCo was happy to get to Heather's and to see the family. She had a wonderful stay and she looked very content and well integrated into the family from the pictures that Heather sent.
Heather was great! She took my dog Hank in at the last minute and even watched him for longer than expected. She has a wonderful son and cute dog who made great playmates!
It was nice to know i could relax and not worry about my dog. I really appreciated the email and picture updates. I would definitely use Heather again.
As usual, Paisley's visit was great! Heather was able to accommodate her very last minute. She came home a happy girl.
Findley really enjoyed his stay at Heather's! I noticed that he wasn't exhausted when he got home which means that he felt very secure with her.
Heather was the first person we used for Bernie after his surgery. She was very attentive to his leg issues and made sure he didn't run around their nice back yard. She was very accommodating to our schedule and made sure Bernie had his meds. I would highly recommend her!

Heather was great! I searched on DogVacay for someone close to us to watch our pups. It was a last minute emergency search and Heather responded almost within an hour of our request! She really saved us as we were getting check into the hospital to deliver our baby and didnt have anyone to watch our pups. It was great getting pictures and updates from her during our stay so we didnt have to worry about the pups while being in the hospital. I think our pups were a little nervous at first, as it was their first time doing the "at home" boarding experience, but heather had them adjusted and happy in no time! We will of course try to book with Heather again for future times!

As usual, Heather was great! Paisley had a wonderful time, and came home happy and healthy.
Gracie's treated like family, and I couldn't ask for more!
Heather was wonderful. Was running late on dropping Goliath off and picking him up and she worked with me on this.
Heather and her family, for the second time, took excellent care of our rambunctious 2 year old Standard Poodle, CoCo Puff Chanel. She was happy to see the family again and seemed ready to fit in once again with her "second" family. Heather sent us pics and an accounting of her activities. The whole family seemed to be engaged with CoCo and she certainly responded to their caring and gentle manner. It was very comfortable knowing she was being so well cared for and that CoCo wanted to be with them. All in all, it was an excellent experience!

Heather was awesome! She took in my 12 year old lab very last minute for two nights and played with her and kept her entertained. She sent me photos of Alli while she was there and I could tell Alli had a blast when I picked her up. I definitely reccommend Heather and will use her again!

Very happy with the overall Dog Vacay experience! Great site, easy process and heather was fantastic! My dog had a great time there and I loved that Heather sent pictures and updates througthout his stay. Will for sure contact her again!
Heather was great, she was very flexible and I know she loved having my girl and took great care of her. I would definitely leave my dog with her anytime.
Paisley had a wonderful time with Heather! She came home happy and healthy, and it was obvious that Heather really cares about the dogs she takes care of. We'll definitely be back.
Heather took excellent care of our old beagle, Sonny. He had loud separation anxiety when my partner, Al and I left him with her, but she texted us and was able to calm him down by discussing what to do about it (namely, feed him treats).
She updated us throughout our trip and sent photos of Sonny relaxed and happy.
We were able to have a great vacation in Maine knowing Heather was taking good care of our dog.
Thank you Heather,
Patricia

Heather and family were wonderful hosts! She requests a meet and greet first - this is good for her peace of mind with her little son in the house, and was good for us to get to know Heather and see what a lovely environment our pup will stay in. Heather is very caring and we felt very relaxed knowing Buster was left in great hands. Daily photo updates were great. Their huge fenced in yard was just another bonus! We would absolutely recommend Heather and would send Buster back again!

Our dog received wonderful care from Heather and her lovely family. Paisley can sometimes have trouble with small dogs, but Heather was incredibly calm and patient with her, and in the end the dogs got along wonderfully. Paisley loved running around in the larged fenced-in yard. She'll definitely be staying with Heather again!

heather was last minute accommodative and great!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Heather and her family. We went on a three-week trip overseas and we felt completely comfortable leaving our labradoodle with Heather. She sent us regular updates, told us funny stories about what he did and who he met, it was truly heartwarming. I recommend Heather 100%. Her family made my dog part of her family...I think he was sad to leave!

Loved Heather, she made me feel good about leaving our dogs with her.
This is the second time Heather has watched Emme while I have gone away and even though the fireworks took its toll on Emme, Heather was awesome with her...she had all the patience with her excessive barking, anxiousness and energy....I felt so bad.....Heather is a wonderful caring human being and I give her all the credit in the world..... both times she has treated my dog with love, hugs and updates by texting and pictures, I trust her 101% and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter for their furry children...she is the best!
Thank you Heather you and little Brody are awesome I wouldn't trade you for the world! Mara

All I had to do was say to my Peaches is; "you wanna go to Heather's", and her tail starts to wag as she ushers me to the door to take her to have fun. I feel real comfortable leaving my pup with Heather and her family. They can look forward to many future visits from Peaches.

Heather was AWESOME! She took care of my dogs as if they were her own
I highly recommend Heather. She took care of my buddy (Tofu) very well and treated him just like her own. From day care to boarding, Heather was very flexible on my short notice and change of plans. Heather readily and willingly accommodated Tofu for my short noticed boarding. Her house is dog friendly with a fenced backyard with plenty of spaces to run around. I could say that Tofu had fun staying at Heather’s place with Kaluha and the other dogs. Her husband and son were also very nice to Tofu too. Heather also gave me everyday updates with photos. I felt secure leaving Tofu in Heather’s care and definitely you will feel the same way if you leave your buddy to her.

Heather was a great caretaker for our dog Carter. She has a perfect house and yard for a dog with a lot of energy to run around, play and tire themselves out. She's very sweet and I would definitely ask her to watch our dog again.
Couldn't be better. I feel like Gracie is staying with family, so when I travel, usually for work, I know Gracie is being lovingly cared for.
I am thrilled to have found Heather! Prior to leaving our pooch with her, we set up a meet and greet to introduce ourselves and our dog, Clementine. Upon meeting we instantly felt comfortable leaving Clementine in her care. Heather is extremely quick to respond to inquiries and was great at keeping us updated with pictures and text messages. I would not hesitate recommending Heather and we will certainly leave Clementine with her and her family again when the need arises!

Heather was awesome keeping me updated she was great with Emme, welcomed us open arms I will absolutely use Heather again, I felt very comfortable leaving Emme at her home this made my vacation even more enjoyable knowing she was safe... I highly recommend Heather to anyone looking for a dog sitter.

Heather was amazing with Shadow. She didn't want to come home. I can tell that Shadow really enjoyed herself and had so much fun with Kahlua. I will be using Heather for all Shadows needs when I'm away. Thank you Heather for taking great care of my little sweetheart.

Max had a great time with Heather! He's been talking about her for weeks :-). I will use Heather every time I go out of town.
Heather took excellent care of Sonny, our old three legged beagle mix. She was easy to communicate with and even sent a photo of him sleeping on his bed.
We had a nice day in NYC knowing that Sonny was in good hands.
Thank you Heather and your family. We will be sure to call on you again.
Patricia and Al

We left our Molly with Heather for seven nights and I can say that Molly was well taken care of.
Molly hasn't been left with others but once before, Heather kept us updated on how Molly was doing and did not hesitate to ask us questions on how to make Molly feel more at ease.
I would recommend Heather as she truly does like dogs and cares for them very much.
Thanks again Heather.

Heather did a wonderful job with Gracie, and I felt secure, for the entire 10 days of my travel, that Gracie was receiving wonderful care in a loving home. When I picked Gracie up yesterday, it was clear that Gracie was warmly welcomed into their home, by husband John, their cute-as-a-button son, Brody, and wonderful young cocker spaniel, Kahlua. I would happily leave Gracie with Heather and family again!
