I just started using Annie and I'm about to reserve a spot for my shy, frightened dog for the 3rd time. Annie must be doing something right with her! I loved seeing the photo of Shadow lying on a couch next to another dog. I've had Shadow for over 10 years and I never saw her interact with other dogs before. Thank you Annie and all your dogs!
Annie was extremely accommodating to take us in essentially last minute. She is a sweet and knowledgeable person who truly loves dogs and loves what she does. She put up with our highly energetic puppy and did a great job taking care of him. I highly recommend anyone looking for someone with experience and knowledge of how to care for pets. We will definitely be back and hope to stop in to her fantastic shop in Cornwall!
My very nervous mini-poodle did very well with Annie. Annie provided the option of a private space for my dog, Shadow, but as it turned out Shadow was happy to interact with the other dogs. Annie was also able to give Shadow her medication, which is no easy task. I was returning home VERY late so Annie suggested that she drop Shadow off at my home rather than have her stay a second night. It was wonderful to arrive home and find Shadow waiting for me. We were both happy. I have already made a reservation for next weekend, so what more can I say.
Annie was wonderful as always..THANKS
Annie made room for Ivy altho her schedule was booked... THANKS AS ALWAYS
Well here I am again!! Nothing less than what has always been presented to me from the 1st time I met ANNIE & that's professionalism, friendly, very genuine with her love for dogs...THANK YOU
Annie was so great to work with. Her easy going manner during the initial phone call put me at ease right away.

Simba had a great time with Annie and it gave us the opportunity to have the day off to spend with our son.

Annie is the best and we will definitely see her again soon.

THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!! Appreciate you..when we got home Ivy ate a lil snack , ran around and played herself to sleep just like a baby..lol
Such a big help this weekend!! Thank u Annie so much
Annie is awesome! We were traveling thru the area and needed a place for our dogs for the day and Annie made it happen. She's very responsive, trustworthy and took great care of our 2 dogs - we'd use her again and highly recommend her!
What more can I say!!!! ALWAYS ANNIE to the rescue!!! THANK U
Annie is super nice and I was glad she was able to watch my dog for the day rather than leave him home alone! He got to play with other dogs in a safe and fun environment. Thanks Annie!
Annie is AWESOME!!!! She cares and has lots ,,, and lots of patience!! Rosco was a handful this time around and Annie took very good care of him. Again. If youre in the area and need a dogsitter. Annie's the Best!!!!
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Annie's soooo sincere...who can ask for anything more!!!
Annie took great care of my Lab and he got along great with the other dogs. We were able to visit and take him to the park whenever we wanted to visit or see him. Annie was very accommodating to our unique requests and fluid schedule.

I will definitely use Annie again whenever we come to town. By the way, Cornwall is very close to West Point and also a great little town.
Annie is great!!! My Rosco had a really awesome time with her and the other pets. I was away at Cayman Island with my family , and Annie was always sending me email pics of my Rosco interacting with the other dogs and with her. She honestly really cares for the pets. She informed me of what treats he likes to eat, and how well he got along with the other dogs. If you need a doggie sitter, and Annie's in your area, I highly recommend bringing your pet to her. She's a very nice lady . Rosco will be back soon to Annie!!!!!
We loved Annie from the moment we contacted her. This was our first experience leaving Django overnite and she made it very easy and worry free.Her schedule was very flexible and she even dropped him off at 10:30 at night at our request. The experience overall could not have been any better. Will certainly use her again if the opportunity arises.

The Barkers
Annie was most impressive, very professional. We appreciated the fact that she not only took excellent care of Meeka, but she was willing to accommodate to our schedule.

She made an excellent impression over the telephone, which was confirmed when we met. We would most certainly use her again and recommend her to others.
As Always.....Thank U! Thank U! Thank U!
Annie did a great job taking care of my dog and was very accommodating as this was a last minute arrangement. I would definitely use her again should the need arise.
WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY...thank u as always!! Ivy's made a few new friends & she comes home smiling each day..Thank You
This was Ivy's first sleep over, she did well, 2 nights seem sooo long..BUTTTT Annie took care of her as always...APPRECIATE U ANNIE!!! THANK U
Annie was wonderful. Very attentive to our dog's special needs and was great about sending photos and updates. We would happily return for another visit.
I totally forgot to leave a review..but as always Annie took great care of Ivy. Huge life saver! THANKS ANNIE
Annie was very pleasant. She did a great job
It was nice to be able to drop my morkies with Annie M. She has already been recommended to friends as whom to choose in this area .
Look no further..Seriously folks! Annie to the rescue again & again and again...She takes such pride in caring for Ivy!! Great communication!! she's just AWESOME!!! Give her a try..THANKS ANNIE
UH-OH Annie!!! You've done it again...To the rescue again & at the last minute Annie watched Ivy & with such care. Im very grateful to have found Annie..And of course I will continue to send Ivy to her...Hope you don't mind Annie...THANKS AS ALWAYS....See u soon!!
Great experience! Annie was very kind and made us feel comfortable about leaving our little Sadie with her. We were in town visiting from Iowa, and this was a new experience for us. I would definitely return to Annie in the future.
Needed a day out with my husband, didn't want to leave my 9 month old mini schnauzer Ivy alone due to her howling/yelping...Well Annie to the rescue!! She's the best, Friendly, attentive, honest! And she even dropped Ivy off at home...I'll be using Annie for sure in the future....APPRECIATE YOU ANNIE
All the reviews are true! I needed someone last minute and Annie came though (a special thanks to her mom) They provided a comfortable environment for Callie. Callie is an older, very arthritic pup. Thanks again
Annie was the best! Our dog is very old and a bit fragile! Annie created a warm, safe space for her, comforted her when she was afraid and introduced her to some gentle furry friends.
She even bought her a Christmas toy! We wouldn't hesitate to use Annie again and would recommend her to anyone.
She's definitely a dog lover!!
Annie was wonderful! In the past we left our dog with someone and he came back to us in shock. With Annie, both our dogs were so happy because they were treated with both care and love. I can't think of anyone who would care more for them than us. Annie cares for each and every animal she is charged with.
Very happy with Annie's care of my dog!
Annie was wonderful! She took care of my puppy Jax overnight with a last minute request and he seemed to have really enjoyed it. Watching Annie interact with Jax when I picked him up, I could tell that she treated him like family. We plan to use her services again,
I can't overstate how pleased we were with Annie M. She showed a real enthusiastic welcoming and genuine fondness for our two dogs. They are not used to being left, but they obviously loved Annie! One of our dogs had been abused by a previous owner, and is still a work in progress. But he really bonded with Annie. She was able to give him his medicine with none of the drama that he sometimes shows.Thanks so much Annie for making our first Dog Vacay experience so pleasant.
Annie was awesome and professional from beginning to end. Sookie loved her stay and all the playtime and attention. Thanks again Annie for taking such good care of our little girl. We will be back!!!
Annie was absolutely fantastic. She took great care of Berkley, and took the initiative of bringing him to the vet when he needed.

I really appreciate her hard work, love, and professionalism. I do hope that she will stay on Dog Vacay as I will certainly use her again.
Annie is the best!! She treated my boy Loki like he was one of her own and I could tell that he really enjoyed his stay. I'm pretty sure that he is missing his buddies that he met during his stay.
Annie is wonderful.
She does everything to make our dog feel loved.
We recommend her to everyone.
Our dog is older and very attached to us.
She gives him so much love and attention when he is with her.
Our dog started to exhibit some GI symptoms during his recent vacay and Annie kept us informed about everything.
I knew she was handling things the same way I would.
You can feel confident leaving your dog with Annie.
Annie is caring and takes the time to know your dog's personality.
Annie and Ashley are the very best of friends. He loves to see her, stay with her, is comfy and happy with her!
I have no worries about the safety or care of Ashley.
Ashley will not stay any place else as a result of the personalized care that he gets while I am away on business.
My dog was relaxed and happy when we got home. I will trust my dog to Annie again.
Annie was wonderful with our dog! He was happy, well fed and thoroughly enjoyed the company of Annie and the other visiting dogs.
Annie is a wonderful substitute "Mom" for our very spoiled 12 year old baby.
He is very attached to us and yet he is happy at Annie's.
We feel comfortable leaving him with her. We know that he gets a lot of love and she pays attention to the special needs of his age.
Annie was just wonderful in caring for Ashley. He enjoys being with her and in her home - 'away at camp'. He comes back home, of course happy to see me. I appreciate her so much, as she cares for Ashley as if he was family to her!
Ashley loves his time with Annie. She loves and cares for him as I do. He is very comfy there, as if he was home...he loves being outdoors there and he has his fraternity paws to socialize with, that he doesn't have at home with me. It is the 2 of us!

Annie is the best, the very best!!!
Annie took such great care of Jake and he had so much fun playing with his new friends. He was happy and tired when he got home. Thanks so much for taking care of Jake and making him feel loved and at home. - Karen
I don't leave my dogs with anyone but Annie. She welcomes them and does her best to make them feel at home. She knows how to handle multiple dogs.
Annie was AWESOME!!!!!! I'd had surgery on my wrist and she agreed to pick up and drop off the kids. The kids came home exhausted, which is their way of showing that they've had a blast on their mini-vacays. Annie sent us pics of the kids and updates every couple of days. It was very reassuring to get those, especially since we were on the other side of the country. I'm torn between referring her to others and keeping her to myself.
I found Annie to be very sensitive to my dog's needs. She was awesome with Baxter.
Annie is great. She took excellent care of Darby, following our instructions for him to the letter. She gave him lots of hugs and kisses which he loves. She treated Darby like her own dog. We couldn't be happier.
Annie to the rescue! At the last minute another host cancelled out on us on the eve of a three week 50th anniversary European trip and cruise, DogVacay reached out to help us find a caregiver for out two old dogs which needed some extra care, especially Princess who is blind. With one call we knew Annie was the one for us (and should be for anyone in the area of West Point, NY).

We were so happy to receive some photos of our puppies while on board the ship---made us sure that we had the right host. Annie is a true dog person and all of her guests we saw seem very happy. She gives each of them some good, loving time. When we picked up our dogs today, she had just bathed them, washed their collars and leashes and bedding. We were all so pleased.
Annie is wonderful!We left our 125 lb South African Boerboel Tiller with her for 3 long weeks. Nervous at first because Tiller has not been away from us for more than a few hours while we were not home. Annie recommended bringing her by for a night to make sure Tiller would be comfortable for a longer stay. Then when the 3 week Dog Vacay began we were a lot more comfortable. Annie sent us photos and videos of Tiller playing and running free. Annie provides a worry free, cage free environment for you and your dog to enjoy for as long as you need. She follows directions very carefully even if it means speaking German commands like she did for Tiller. She loves the dogs she cares for like her own and her dedication and love for what she does shows through her emotions. We will absolutely use Annie again even to just let Tiller go play with her dog friends again.
Jozy loves going to Annie's. She always has playmates, and is so well taken care of. Annie let's her be herself, and gives her snuggles just like we do. We always go away and enjoy your time knowing Annie is watching our Furbaby! Jozy comes home and is always pooped from her visit with her second family! :-) thanks Annie
As always, Oliver received the best care from Annie. She treats him like one of her own and keeps in touch with pictures while we're away. We can see what a good time Oliver is having and we know he is in good hands. We are so glad we found Annie!
Wonderful. Dallas was well cared for!
Annie took my dogs right in and treated them as her own. I am relieved to know I have someone who cares this much about my pets. She didn't push them into socializing which worked out perfectly. By the time I picked them up they were part of the pack.
We just love Annie! She is the only one, beside me, who I'll let care for Oliver, the 16 yr old yorkie-poo. As it turns out, while we were away, Annie had to take Oliver to the vet. She handled the situation expertly and was in touch with us all during the process. I trust her in both good and bad situations. I highly recommend Annie for all your dog watching needs. Thank you Annie for caring for Oliver! xxoo
We left our 2 Labrador retrievers with Annie for about 6 days in January. The night we dropped them off with, I discovered 1 of our dogs had an open wound under her ear. I was concerned about leaving a dog with a health concern with someone i didnt know well. Annie didn't bat an eye, she was confident that she could clean the wound and put the cream the vet prescribed on daily. When we picked our dogs up, not only did our dogs not want to come home with us, the wound on our injured dog looked amazing, it was almost healed. Annie informed us that she had a been using a natural product on the wound that she sells at her store. She also sent daily emails with updates and pictures while we were away. I can't say enough great things about Annie, I would highly recommend her!
Our dog had a wonderful stay with Annie. Annie is extremely caring and loving towards the dogs in her care. She sends pics and texts to let you know how the dog is doing. She has a lot of experience and you can tell that all the dogs are so well cared for. I would highly recommend her; there is no comparison between her home dog care and a kennel. Thank you Annie!
Another wonderful vacay for "Oliver" with Annie! He was so well cared for. He needed daily medication this time and Annie did a wonderful job of keeping track of things. He looked wonderful when I picked him up a few hours ago. I will always use Annie for my dog vacay needs, no one can top her!
Thanks Annie

xxoo Oliver and family
A wonderful experience for Oliver, the 15 yr old terrier mix! Annie took great care of him and to ease our minds, she send a text with a picture so we could see he was in good hands. I highly recommend Annie, she is a very loving and knowledgeable caretaker. We will be using her services again next week for the Thanksgiving holiday!! Thanks a million Annie....!! xxxooo, Oliver and family!
Our pup Jozy had a great time at Annie's home!!! This was our first time using a service of any type. From the beginning of the process, Annie made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. We did a meet & greet, and Jozy seemed to really enjoy being there. I picked her up on Sunday, and got a great report card on her. Jozy was having fun there right up till the moment we left. I realized what a fun weekend she truly had, when all she did when we got home was sleep! :) It's very comforting to know I have someone I can trust with my furbaby when I cannot be there! Thanks Annie!!
Annie is great! No problems at all, and very friendly and accommodating! Our little boy had a wonderful time! Will definitely book with her again.
