About Sara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have spent my entire life surrounded by many dogs. I currently moved to North Carolina and only have one dog with me here. Sophie is a 6 year old Yorkie/Shih Tzu mix and is missing her sisters back home in Virginia. We would love to have puppy play time with your pride and joy! We have lots of walking trails and a dog park right here in our complex!

My husband and I decided on an impromptu overnight getaway and needed care for our Shorkie on short notice. I'm so glad I found Sara. She went above and beyond caring for Willie. We received photos with updates and a video. Best of all, he came home exhausted ;0), trust me, that's a good thing. I will most definitely use her services again!
Sara and Ian are the best ever! My mini schnauzer mix Lacey spent 9 days with them and had a great time when I was on vacation out of the country. Sara sent me photos every day and videos through the DV website and it always made me feel good to see how happy Lacey was and that she was in good hands.

Lacey seemed to make friends with their dog Sophie and according to Sara, was a good girl, which means she must have loved it there. I'm so glad I found someone I trust. I don't have to worry now about traveling because I know Lacey will be well taken care of!
Sara was the best! My dog Lacey had a great time at her house and made friends with her cute dog Sophie. This was a one night "sleepover" for Lacey to make sure it went well in preparation for a longer trip I will be taking in a couple weeks. I couldn't be happier with how it went -- Sara sent a little video of Lacey playing with one of Sophie's toys and also kept me updated via text. It's such a relief to know Lacey is in good hands, I will be able to breathe easy now when I go on vacation!!
Sara and Ian were wonderful. Mocha had a great time and I would definitely use their services again. Loved the pictures and video updates!
Scooter obviously had a blast with Sara and Sophie. He came home happy and healthy. Thanks for keeping him so well!
This was a "trial stay" to ensure that our, high separation anxiety, dog is feeling comfortable,
gets along with Sara's dog, Sophie, and
our dog's needs can be met without disruption of
host's routine.
Sara was patient, understanding and tried to do her
best to ensure our dog is calm and comfortable.
We already scheduled a longer stay with her.
My little guy had the best time. He does not do well with boarding and the home situation seems to be great. Sara was wonderful with him, I had multiple pictures of him daily. I would recommend her highly. thank you for taking such good care of my baby.
This was Blue's second stay with Sara. He was so thrilled to be there and was a tired pup when he got home. Wish we could give more stars than 5!
Jake stayed for the 1st time for 10 days. He is not an easy dog having issues with rain and thunder. Sara and Ian did excellent with him. Sent pictures each day. When he returned home it was like he never left, no attitude.

Great place to take your dog!
Sara and Ian were unbelievable. My husband and I felt like we were leaving our 1st born child when we dropped our puppy off. Needless to say, he had a great weekend....and as a result, so did we! Sara was professional and kind. We will, without a doubt, use her again.
Sara is personable, flexible, and a dog lover. She has worked with my schedule and my anxious dog. She has followed my specific directions and kept me up to date on my dogs' wellbeing.
Sara was just absolutely amazing! We were immediately at ease when we dropped off our lily, knowing that she will have a wonderful time. Sara updated us everyday with adorable pictures and videos! We will defiantly drop our lily off at Sara's again!
Sara did a wonderful job taking care of Dagny, we loved the daily updates! We will definitely contact Sara again, she is very responsive and professional!
Sara V took excellent care of my dogs. One dog is very old and frail, the other is young and frisky. She notified me daily and sent pictures. I would definitely like to have my dogs stay with Sara again. I will recommend her to my neighbor's as well. Thank you again Sara.
Sara was so great and we will definitely use her again. She was very accommodating with the times we needed to drop off and pick up and she sent pictures and videos! I can tell she loves dogs. Gretta was in good hands.
Scooter had a great time at Sara's! She sent daily pics of him on their walks and playing inside. We plan on Scooter staying with her the next time we are away. Thanks, Sara!
Sara is great! She took care of our dog while we were out of the country. She communicated well and sent so many pictures!
My dog is very shy with strangers and I was worried how she would do, but she did great! Sara kept us updated daily and I would certainly use her again ! Thank you!
Sara was fantastic! My husband and I got pictures every day of Ellie looking like she was having a total blast. On day one, we felt guilty for leaving her, by the final day, we felt guilty for making her leave. This was a great experience and we would definitely use Sara again in the future.
I would give Sara 10 stars if I could! She was just wonderful with Pippin! Sara loved and cared for him as if he were her own. She will be my sitter of choice for Pippin in the future! Thank you Sara for assuring a great experience for Pippin and I!
Sara was awesome! Our sitter fell through so we booked Sara a few days before our travel plans, she was responsive and accommodating. Our dog is shy and protective until he gets to know someone and she invested the time and handled him perfectly. While we were away he became ill (the runs) so she had to walk him much more often than we expected and clean up too. She was completely professional, consulted with the vet and communicated often. She was so caring, I couldn't have been more pleased. When we returned it was easy to see that our dog was very comfortable around her. I plan to book with Sara again and highly recommend her.
