About Wendy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Because kenneling and boarding was never an option for any of our own pets, our feelings led us to open our home and hearts to other pets, our motto being "when they can't be away with you, they can be home with us". We give the same care we give to our own...love, kindness, patience, lots of hugs and pats, long dawn and dusk walks adding additional strolls throughout the day when our beautiful Florida weather permits, play time, splash pool, dog parks if allowed. With supervision and a watchful eye, they can run around, play ball, bark and be happy in our fenced yard under the trees with plenty of water and lots of treats. Lets not forget the treats! Whatever they want and need we're here for them.
For the "pet parents " we hope to offer what we sought when we had to be away from our pets; confidence that they are in a safe and happy home and the assurance that they will be loved and treated kindly...and maybe even a little spoiled as well.
We keep in contact throughout your pets stay and encourage any number of check-on calls by you to make your time away as stress-free as possible,and for you to know all is well and all is well. It's what we do when we're away!
We provide sleep-overs, daily day care, extended stays and walking services for pups of working "parents" that are home alone during the day. We also offer pick-up within a 7 mile radius.
We have a 6year old Aussie named Booker who plays well with others. And also a 13 year old cat, Daphne Moon Unit.
Because we are motivated by our love of animals, we keep only 3 pups at a time, allowing us to give them the special care they deserve and you expect.

wendy is the best! she sent me updates with pictures every day. after meeting her and seeing her peaceful little house i felt very secure leaving chica with her, and chica left the experience a very happy camper after 2 days.
I can not imagine a more welcoming, warm and dog friendly environment. Wendy and Ross clearly love dogs and treat every one as if they were their own. Their home is truly special, I am very thankful to have found Wendy and Ross. My wife and i can now travel knowing that our dog will receive extraordinary, loving care when we are gone.
Bach absolutely loves going on "vacay" with Wendy and crew! Never a worry or concern about him while we are away.
Wendy was awesome, and I know my dog had a great time- he also reeeally loved the treats she sent him home with. I got enough updates- with plenty of details- to be able to relax and enjoy my time away. Highly recommend!
Wendy is an absolute dog lover and I felt completely confident my little Daisy was in good hands. I loved daily emails from her with updates and assurance Daisy was having a good time. I highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a home environment that welcomes your baby with open arms.
Wendy was amazing! She made the drop off quick and painless and treated my little princess like she was her own. She woke up early with Carter and carried her on walks when she had enough. Booker was great as well. He didn't mind a tiny playmate who liked to steal his toys. Carter's vacation was more relaxing than mine was! Definitely would bring her back if we're ever in the area.
Dogvaca has turned out to be a great experience. As we leave town regularly, we appreciate how easy it is to book our favorite dogsitter, Wendy. Our goldendoodle is an all boy teenager and I never worry that the's too much for her to handle. Her kindness and compassion just calms our boy down. Many thanks, Dogvac, for introducing us to Wendy and her husband.
Kona, our goldendoodle, bounds into Wendy's garden to greet her each time he visits. And he leaves with a gift of homemade doggy cookies. How good can it get?
We scheduled an over-nighter for our 9 month doodle and was thoroughly delighted by the experience. Wendy made sure that he was well adjusted to his surroundings, and she even found humor in his tendency to follow her everywhere including into the bathroom. Thanks so much! We will book again, and soon.
Wendy is so wonderful! My dog, Austin, gets so excited when we get close to her house. She loves on them, makes them organic dog biscuits, takes them places, and let's them be part of her family. Wendy also sends updates via email everyday that are funny and cute. She is wonderful! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great pet sitter.
Wendy was the perfect hostess for my diva dachshund! Her beach cottage was so cozy and I know my pup felt so comfortable, well taken care of and like she was on her own beach vacay! Since we were traveling from another state, we were unable to do a meet and greet, but I could tell from Wendy's kind and creative emails that she would be perfect for the occasion! Throughout the visit, Wendy kept me updated with the most detailed and sweetly written emails, which I really appreciated. And her resident animals were so sweet and welcoming to the new visitor (my dog Coco) who surely tried to takeover as Queen Bee. If we are ever back in St Pete Beach, we will visit again for sure. Thank you Wendy!
Wendy and "uncle" Ross were amazing hosts for our little Lindy. I was worried to leave her but they put me at ease and I know she had a grand time! Her vacation might have been better than mine! :)
We couldn't have been more pleased...Wendy is wonderful and Bodhi has been sulking since she returned home...plus homemade dog treats for the ride home.
We truly have no worries when Stella and Lilee stay with Wendy. We all sense Wendy's calm and positive energy. She treats your pet like they are part of her family. We can't wait for Wendy and Booker to meet our new doodle Lacey.
Wendy was awesome. She took our pet for walks every evening and then some. She was great at texting me updates each day and our dog was well loved and taken care of. I highly recommend her.
I am telling you what - stop looking and sign up with Wendy!!!! The care is out of this world. This was the first time using DogVacay and meeting Wendy. You couldn't ask for better folks. She is quick to respond to emails, she accommodated us sending someone else to meet and greet her (we were out of state), she wanted to make sure she was there when we did arrive. During the stay,she treats your dog as her own. She sends email updates, takes your dog for walks on the beach, plays with them, and no crate. Her dog is a sweetie pie in which everybody is his friend. She even sent a little homemade goodie bag full of treats home with our dog. The pictures are exactly what is there. It is one of those rare finds where it is that good and it IS TRUE. Honestly, I wanted to stay there too :)
PupsInParadise is the perfect name.
Lola had such a great time I don't think she wanted to go home.
Not only was Wendy quite wonderful with our little doggie, Oscar, she was so sympathetic to our recent loss of our cat. Great energy and a great experience.
Our Stella & Lilee, spent the day with Wendy, Uncle Ross, Booker & Daphne. Stella & Booker immediately became best friends but our little Lil was quite apprehensive. While Ross looked after Stell & Book, Wendy took Lilee for a long leisurely walk to calm her. Wendy and her family are very caring and true pet lovers. We will be visiting again!
My 2 little Maltese dogs Wally and Coco spent the day with Wendy and her human and animal family. I suspect they liked it because before we could get to the gate to go home they were already back to exploring her outdoor courtyard. Wendy has a safe and calm environment there and I will be the first to admit I am overprotective of the dogs. This was our first stay and Wendy was happy to give them their (little dog) midday meal and hold Coco on her lap when she wanted to be held.
Wendy is a born animal lover and I couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving my boy in her capable hands.
Wonderful experience. Felt very comfortable leaving Bach for a full week. I could tell when we picked him up that he felt at home!
It was a pleasure meeting Wendy, her family and her dog guests. They treated my dog Bailey like she had been part of the family for a long time. I loved Wendy's calm, competent approach with animals. I would give her more than five stars, and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants leave their pet companion with her.
Couldn't be happier. Chester was treated like a member of the family. Daily updates from Wendy were great. Highly recommend.
Wendy always does a fabulous job and our boys LOVE her!
I would highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for pet care in this area. She goes out of her way to make your pet feel at ease and at home. She even brought our Beau down to the beach to view the sunset! She nurtures all animals as her own. I feel so honored to have met Wendy and just can't think of enough superlatives to describe her and her love for pets and her joy in doing what she loves most. Please look her up when here and don't even consider anyone else.
Wendy Ross and Bookie are great hosts! They are Tilley's favorite getaway. Wendy will always be Tilley's Mom 2. Woof!
The best! Tilley vacations with Pups in Paradise all the time and she is so happy to be there. Thanks Wendy!! Woof!
Wendy was wonderful with my tiny 15 year old Maltese. He had never been away from home and since I had a family wedding in St Petersburg he stayed with her for 4 days. She really cares about the dogs. She was also a great communicator - emailing daily with small updates to ease my mind. Would definitely leave him with her again
Awesome as always. Tilleys "Aunt" Wendy, "Uncle Ross" & Bookey are great!! Abig pawesome from all of us.
Wendy is an amazingly kind woman that just loves the heck out of our boys! They look forward to seeing her and it makes traveling for business much more relaxed knowing they are being well cared for and loved!
Wendy did an amazing job! The boys loved her and we will gladly use her again!!
Wendy is wonderful as always. Our girl was happy and content and we will have Wendy sit again and again. Our Tilley says Wendy is jubilicious! Thanks Wendy!!
Wendy is great! I have taken my puppy to her twice and each time Wendy treats her like family. Couldn't be happier. Thanks Wendy! Monique and Greg
This review is way overdue....
My Star stayed with Mrs Wendy and uncle Ross over the 4th of July holiday. My Star is a very nervous dog and not very trusting of people. Mrs. Wendy put her to ease right away. They were so patient and caring with her. I received frequent email updates about how she was doing and still receive emails just checking in on her.
Mrs Wendy and uncle Ross are true animal lovers and spoiled my little girl more than I do, lol!! She got special dog ice cream treats and she went home with a new bunny toy that she still sleeps with. I travel to Treasure Island frequently and not only will I use them again, I look forward to visiting with them as well.
Wendy is great! Little Tilley and I say thanks so much for all. She was very happy and all puppy as usual. We will call again in the future. Monique Tilley and Greg.
Another wonderful stay for our pup! Wendy & family are the best!
I would highly recommend Wendy...she took great care of our little Ruby...on short notice she was able to take her for the whole day so we could do some shopping and sightseeing...thanks again to Wendy and Dog Vacay
Wendy was a wonderful dog sitter. Our pup was so well cared for and loved. She went on walks, played and had some treats with our approval. Wendy kept in touch with us to let us know how our pup was doing during her stay. I would highly recommend her.
Our dog has separation anxiety issues and Wendy G. was very calm and soothing and seemed to ease
the anxiety fairly well. She was very concerned about my issues with boarding our dog when we did the meet-n-greet and addressed these issues when
we did leave our pet with her. I would definitely use her again if I have to leave our dog.
Wendy was wonderful with Quincy. She made me feel very at ease leaving him with her, and Quincy seemed right at home when I returned to pick him up. We will definitely be back!
Wendy is great! You immediately feel at ease leaving your pet with her. She has a wonderful fenced yard for exploring as well as her dog and cat to play with. Jo Jo usually takes several naps during the day but he was having too much fun. I'll definitely be a repeat customer.
