About Stephanie

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Stephanie and I had a dog (Toy Poodle - pictured in my profile pics) for 10 years until recently and I miss her terribly. I am an extremely responsible, attentive and loving dog sitter. I treat every dog as if it were my own. I'm trained using positive reinforcement, will never yell or scream. I grew up with small/medium dogs and have a special affinity for Poodles (+ mixes!) and Terriers. I volunteered at the humane society in my hometown and have experience with all dogs - from puppies to senior dogs. I have an entire 1 bedroom apartment in the Pearl District. I do a lot of walking during the day and would love a little furry companion. The Pearl District is extremely walkable and I love taking dogs on my errands around town. There are a ton of dogs in the area (good with other dogs is a must) as well as dog-friendly parks and walking areas.

Your dog would get the same spoiled treatment as it would be our own! Napping on the couch, belly rubs or kisses.... whatever makes them happy, makes us happy. My girlfriend and I love dogs, some people might say we are slightly dog obsessed.

*Note: Starting 9/6, I am working Monday-Friday from 8am-5:30pm in the SW Portland area. I am still very much continuing with dogvacay but just ask that pickups and drop offs be around the new schedule. The weekends I am available anytime :) Any questions, please message me.

**If you live at Block 17, please inquire about discounts on dog walking and dog sitting!

Stephanie is absolutely wonderful!! I boarded my poodle, Misty, with her and throughout the stay, I felt 100% confident that Misty was being taken care of in the best of hands. Stephanie was incredibly communicative and professional, and seemed very experienced and loving with dogs - especially young, small and energetic pups as my Misty is. Stephanie sent me several photos and even a video of her in the park with Misty, and when I came to pick her up, Misty was very relaxed, happy, and affectionate towards Stephanie. I could not be happier with my experience with Stephanie, and will absolutely use her again!
I needed to find a sitter for the weekend in a small amount of time. Stephanie was quick to respond and lucky for me she was available. She was great with taking care of my shy dog peaches and sent me picture updates throughout the weekend. It was reassuring to know that peaches was warming up to Stephanie. I could tell peaches enjoyed her stay because when it was time to leave she was very loving towards Stephanie. I would definitely book with Stephanie again.
Finn had a great time!
It was the worst experience ever! From the first day she was texting me to complain about my puppy even though she already knew he is not trained yet! I was on vacations and after two days she told me that she doesn't want to take care of him anymore! I had to find someone who could take care of him! She complained about Milo scratching her door and have some accidents on the floor! And that's why she left him homeless! Even though he was under her supervision she was trying to charge me for the damages! I do not recommend this person at all she is very incompetent and nervous to take care of your pets!
After visiting a couple of commercial dog day care facilities, I was apprehensive about leaving my small dog there. Then I found DogVacay on line and contacted Stephanie since she lives close to my daughter. I set up an appointment to meet her and brought my two grandson with me. Both grandsons said Stephanie was the one to watch Maya, my dog.
Stephanie was wonderful! She cared for Maya for two days and a night while I went to Seattle with my grandsons. Stephanie sent me a couple of photos of Maya during her "vacay" which was so thoughtful. One photo was of Maya looking out the window and the other photo of Maya on a walk in the park. It was reassuring to know that Maya was having a good time and in good care.
I am so glad that I found Stephanie and DogVacay. Whenever I bring Maya with me to Portland and need dog care, I will definitely contact Stephanie. I'm also very thankful for the service that DogVacay provides.
Stephanie and Gabby did such a great job with my pup Ava. I get just as much separation anxiety away from her as she does with me so it was important to know she was well taken care of. That became immediately apparent with the great pictures and even a video of the great time she was having -- not to mention asking all the right questions from the beginning. Thanks girls, looking forward to the next stress-free trip!
Stephanie was fantastic. She was very communicative throughout the entire process and made pick up and drop off a breeze. The location is great. Her apartment is very clean and there are many open spaces accessible. Stephanie and her partner were very caring for my dog. I could tell by how velcro my dog became to them. I'd definitely repeat leaving my dog with them.
Stephanie was great! She was responsive to all of my calls/texts and took great care of my dog Vox during his stay. She even sent me a picture of him at the park the day after I dropped him off. Definitely would use her again.
