About Sara

I travel a lot for work so please check my calendar often.
But when not traveling, I work from home so I am here all day and available to pet sit and dog walk. I love dogs and have a dog who tolerates dogs and loves to go on walks. Together we can take excellent care of your dog in our home.
We endeavor to only have one dog vacay at a time so your dog will get the attention they deserve. If your dogs are in the same family already, we of course make will take them as a pair (more than two would probably be too much though).
We also live very near a park for fun play dates. Our house is best suited for smaller dogs (but I've seen the big ones charge right thru the small dog door too!) but we are willing to meet larger dogs too and see if they will fit.
We don't watch kitties. Roscoe isn't a fan and the husband is allergic.
For the Walks and Checkups services - I would actually charge you less for those but Dog Vacay has a minimum amount they let me enter. If you are interested in those services, we could do a custom quote instead.
I try to keep the calendar up to date but sometimes things change quickly so if I show as unavailable it sometimes doesn't hurt to check and make sure that's true.
The reverse is also sometimes possible and I'm unavailable when it says that I am.
If planning a vacation with your pooh, check out this product: http://www.containerstore.com/s/reusable-pet-food-storage-bag/d?productId=11003255
I'm only including this because I've had dog food brought to me in all manners of inconvenient containers :)

Sara is the best! She truly is happy to see your pooch and gave Toby as much comfort as if in your own home. And Toby felt right at home. Toby even ran a 5k, which was "pawsome!"
Sarah went above and beyond to make Jaz's stay with her enjoyable! After meeting Sarah and her pug Roscoe and getting to see where Jaz would spend her vacay I had no concerns. Sarah sent photos too! Jaz needs meds twice a day and Sarah was great with that and alsi with Jaz's picky eating. Knowing that Jaz loves to hike, Sarah arranged to take her in an excellent adventure with some other hiking dogs. Jaz will be staying with Sarab and Roscoe every time we visit Ketchum and rhanks to this wonderful first experience with pet vacay we will look to find Jaz a pet vacay on all our travels.

Sara was very accommodating!
Our four-legged child was well loved and his people appreciated the updates sent by the hosts. We would definitely have our baby stay here again.
Yuki had another great stay at Roscoe's place! She always seems happy and we get great pics of her while we are gone...which we love! I highly recommend Sara if need a safe place for your pooch while you are away.
My two dogs have stayed with Sara twice now. I would highly recommend her!
I'm so glad I found Sara to watch our sweet, super energetic Sadie. Sadie needs lots of affection, and Sara let her make herself right at home. She sent daily photos of Sadie having a great time and treated our silly pupper like her own. I hope Sara's available to care for Sadie every time we leave town!

Our two labs stayed with Sara for a couple of nights over Thanksgiving. Sara was a great host for our canine kids - she even took them on the 5k Turkey Trot. Highly recommended!
Sara and her husband, Ned, treated our pet, Max, as if he were theirs. Max loved them and so did we! Sara provides a great environment, outstanding communication, and wonderful peace of mind to the owners. When we need a dog sitter again, we won't go anywhere else but to Roscoe's Place. Thank you Sara, Ned, and Roscoe!

Sara and her husband Ned were wonderful! Our boy Bruno had a great time at Roscoe's place. It was obvious from the "kisses" he was giving Ned that he enjoyed his time with Sara and her family. Absolutely recommend Roscoe's place!
Sara is great. We arrived with our dogs from out of town - knowing only the positive reviews here. They are right - Sara is awesome. Our two dogs were happy and relaxed. All communication with Sara was easy and clear! Definitely recommend highly!
I feel very good leaving my dogs in Sara's care and completely trust her. My dogs aren't the easiest but Sara's calm way and genuinely love for dogs puts mine two at ease. I can highly recommend her.
Sara watched our dog Enzo while we were at Craters of the Moon National Monument. She was super easy to communicate with and Enzo had a great stay with her and her dog Rosco. Fully fenced yard, tons of dog toys, lots of human supervision and loving! Sara also sent us photos throughout the stay which was much appreciated! Thank you for taking such good care of him!

Sara was great with my dog! She sent me pics of her dog and my dog getting along and having fun. I will call her when I need a dog sitter, for sure.
Sara was a wonderful host to our dogs. Although they were, as usual, ecstatic to see me at pickup, it was obvious they had been really happy to be with Sara. The daily photos were comforting. She followed our instructions for the special care for our older dog to the letter and was kind enough to drop off a harness that we forgot on pickup. Thank you Sara--we'll be back!

Yuki had another good stay with Sara and Roscoe. Sara is really good about sending updates and pictures so I know how Yuki is doing...which we love cause we miss her so much when we are gone. She always comes home safe and happy!
Sara is awesome! Our dog was well cared for and had a great stay!
Sara was great! Came over for a meet and greet, sent photos of the boys and left good notes as to the time she spent with them! Really got lucky finding the service and Sara!
Sara is awesome! We went away so relaxed because we could tell our dog would be in great hands. And we could tell he loved staying there because when we picked him up, he did not sing to us as much as usual. He loved Sara. Roscoe's place is a great low-key place for dogs to hang-out and Roscoe is a very nice host.

Our family left Jake our Black Lab w/ Sara on short notice last week and she was great! Nice, clean house in a good residential neighborhood w/ plenty of trails and parks for him to run around. Sara is a very nice woman and Jake had a great time. I will bring him back to Sara's DogVacay in the future any time. This website rules!
