About Stephanie

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I pride myself in customer service and offer Overnight Boarding services, including specialized attention. I am available seven days a week for boarding yet carry a 40 hour a week day job that hinders me from being home Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Fresh air is vital to your pet’s health and every day walks are provided to your pet along with frequent outside potty breaks. A locally known community park named Foxglove is just a few blocks away from me. The park provides a beautiful yet safe environment for your dog.

I work hard to learn your dog's personality, likes, dislikes and special needs to ensure the best care possible, such as:

* Feeding patterns and preferences
* Medical information and medications
* How your pet interacts with other animals
* What makes your pet happy and what upsets it

My dog services include:
* Supervised play time
* Walks
* And lots of individual attention

You are welcome to bring your own beds and comfort items for your dog, I want them to be as comfortable as possible while they stay with me. I always do my best to accommodate for your dog’s special needs however every dog has their own medications, food, bowls, toys, crates and leashes. Please be sure to bring these items with you during their stay.

Stephanie is the best dog sitter! Stephanie and her daughter clearly love ALL animals, and took wonderful care of our pup, Lucy. Lucy has anxiety issues and we were absolutely floored at how comfortable she was right from the first visit in Stephanie's home. Lucy takes a daily medication and Stephanie had no problem with administering the med and made sure she got it on time every day. She sent us daily photos of Lucy so we could see how much fun she was having with the other dogs, which was such a nice touch. We were able to relax and enjoy our vacation knowing Lucy was in such good hands. We will definitely call on Stephanie again for her dog sitting services and you should too!
Stephanie was absolutely amazing a 5 star n my book the picture updates were great we were hesitant to leave our puppy W just anyone but would not hesitate to do it again very convenient n flexible drop off n pick up . thank you Scotty n Tina C
I always feel safe leaving Butch with Stephanie. I know she cares about him and he never seems sad when I leave him with her. I like getting the pix she sends and updates.
Stephanie was great! The dogs were happy and came back full of energy. Stephanie's setup, which also includes a backyard, is very good for dogs. She's caring, friendly, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her.
Stephanie, thanks again for a great stay!
This was the second time my pups stayed with Stephanie and her daughter and I'm so glad they did! They seemed to remember Stephanie from last time and were so wiggly and excited to see her again! I know that my pups are in good hands with Stephanie. She treats them like her own and keeps their likes and dislikes in mind. I loved getting the updates and pictures. My pups looked so bright eyed and happy! Stephanie was very flexible with pick up and drop off times. She was even willing to make last minute changes to the pick up date and time when my flight was delayed. I will definitely be booking with Stephanie again!
Stephanie is a kind and dog loving person! She is awesome! My dogs love going to her house! She treats your dogs like you treat your dogs! You could not find a better person to care for your dogs! She is always super accommodating! She and her daughter are truly dog people!
Great experience again. Stephanie was very flexible with drop off/pick up times, and we received photo updates of Pippa several times.
Stephanie is great! This is his second stay with her, and he had a wonderful time. He was able to interact with other dogs, and the pictures she sends lets me know he is having a good time. I will be using her again.
Stephanie was able to take Pippa (2 year old golden/lab) on short notice, literally the day before I needed to leave for my trip. I received several picture updates throughout Pippa's stay, and I believe she had a great time.
Stephanie is AMAZING! We have never sent our puppy on an overnight trip before, and Stephanie really made our nerves and fears go away. We received daily updates, pictures, and videos that were adorable which helped ease our minds, as well! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone who needs a safe and loving environment for their pup! We will absolutely use her services again! Thank you. :)
Stephanie and her daughter are awesome!! They sent pics and updates throughout his stay with them and he was exhausted from all the fun when he got home! Thanks so much for the great care:)
Stephanie was wonderful with my 9 month old Beabull puppy, Rosie. Rosie must have played the whole time during her vacay with Stephanie - she slept most of our hour ride home and was still tired the next day! Would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone looking to enjoy their vacation and come home to a happy fur baby!
second time with Stephanie and just a repeat I would recommend her to all my friends
Stephanie is very flexible I appreciated the pictures and updates
This is our second time with Stephanie, and it was wonderful again! You have no worries when you leave your dogs with her. We where a little late getting back and she assured us that it was fine not to worry.Again I can not say enough about how good she is! I recommend her very highly!
Stephanie was great, just like all the other 5 star reviews said she would be. We were of course nervous at first because this is the first time we had ever used an overnight sitter, but Stephanie sent us pictures and showed us what a great time Ziggy was having with her daughter and the other dogs she was watching. We will definitely return to Stephanie if we ever need a sitter for our dog again.
Stephanie was the best! You could not find a better person to watch your dogs. She helps you in any way she can above and beyond! My dogs loved her and her daughter! It was the first time they stayed with someone other than family, I was a little aprehensive about how it would go, but it went fabulous! I would definitely take the boys back!
Another worry-free trip thanks to Stephanie. Our puppy has stayed with her several times now and always gets great care. As we drove to her house, our dog recognized where we were and got very excited. We got photo updates while we were gone so we never had to worry. We highly recommend Stephanie.
Stephanie went above and beyond to make Gracie comfortable and cared for.I even got daily updates complete with photos of Gracie.
Weetzie and Banjo had a great time with Stephanie and Madison!They were so happy and playful when I brought them home. It was clear that they got all of the playtime and attention they could possibly want while I was away! Stephanie really went above and beyond to ensure that they felt comfortable and secure in her home. She took time to note each dog's likes/dislikes and eccentricities. The daily photos and updates were great, too! I would definitely choose Stephanie to take care of my dogs the next time I travel.
Stephanie is always amazing!
My dogs were very happy and well taken care of by Stephanie and her daughter!!! You can really tell they are dog people. I would highly recommend Stephanie and use her services again!!!!
Stephanie was ... just ... plain ... AWESOME! I was certain my Lola was in great hands while my husband and I went away on a much needed vacation! Lola really benefitted from being in a home with other dogs. Since her return from Stephanie's she has become more sociable and is barking when she hears something awry (something she NEVER did before).
I always feel safe leaving Jeeter with Stephanie. When I left him this last visit he wasn't anxious and that helped me feel less guilty about leaving him. I love the pictures that Stephanie sends me and so do my friends.
This was their second stay. They could hardly wait to get out of my car and in to see Stephanie and her daughter.
My boys have never stayed away from home until yesterday. They seemed happy and comfortable and liked Stephanie and her daughter. I am glad to have found DogVacay as my other alternative was a caged kennel with concrete floors.
Stephanie was great! She would do anything for your dog to make them feel right at home. She even let Riley sleep in her room with her next to her bed, because that is what Riley is used to. I would recommend her to anyone! I will defiantly take my dog back to her again!
Max had a wonderful time with Stephanie and her daughter. I would definitely use her again!
I dont think my boys wanted to come home! Thanks Stephanie!
Stephanie was incredible! Thank you so much!
Koda loved his stay with Stephanie. She took him on a few walks and let him cuddle up to sleep to feel more like home. Stephanie sent us updates during his stay to keep us posted on how he was doing. We'll definitely book again with Stephanie next time we have to go out of town.
We couldn't have been happier with Moose's stay with Stephanie! He came home so happy. We received several updates over the course of our trip, so we never worried about him in the slightest! We will definitely be using her again!
Stephanie was awesome.. our dogs love her... I would recommend Stephanie to anyone.. she is the best
Stephanie was awesome. On short notice she was able to make arrange ya to watching dog for the weekend. She sent pics of him playing and I could just tell when I picked him up that he had a great weekend! I highly recommend Stephanie and her daughter Madison, they were genuenly great with Blizzy!
What a huge relief not to have to worry about our dog while we were out of town. Stephanie's house is easy to find, it's in a central location, and the yard is large enough for dogs to run. We got text and photo updates and she was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times. I will definitely have Stephanie watch our puppy again.
She was super friendly and accommodating. She took our puppy at very late notice. Would definitely recommended and use her again.
I have used other facilities for our dogs but not like this. Stephanie & (Maddie) were so personal and one on one, that I would not ever think to go back to the previous establishments. We loved getting updated pictures of our dog! It was reassuring and gave us a giggle. Totally satisfied.
Stephanie was AWESOME!!! She took Vincent last minute and was such an awesome host. Our dog has a LOT of energy! She took him on numerous long walks in one day, sent us pictures, and was all around great!! Book her if you need someone in Toledo!

I was wondering how it would turn out till I did the meet and greet with Stephanie she had a dog there at the time and you could just tell SHE is a dog person talk about first impressions. Couldn't have been more pleased my dog liked her right away and her daughter felt very comfortable leaving her there and she was in a very happy state when I got home will definitely go to

Stephanie again
I just moved to Toledo and had to leave town 3 days later. I didn't want to leave my 13.5 year old dog at a vet. He was traumatized as it is. Stephanie was great and her home was inviting. I knew Jeeter would feel better being with a family and so would I. Stephanie sent pictures of Jeeter and updates on how he was doing. I will definitely have Jeeter stay with Stephanie again.
Stephanie was very accommodating. I had a last minute cancellation and she was very willing to help. The process was very easy, she was very polite , professional, and clearly a dog lover. She sent us updates and pictures to show us how he was doing. She was also very flexible as far as pickup/drop off. When I picked him up he was very happy and was very clearly well taken care of. I will definitely use her services again and recommend her to anyone who hasa need for a great dogsitter.
My dog Suki had a wonderful stay with Stephanie and came home happy and healthy. Stephanie was very welcoming and has a warm kind demeanor that immeadiately set my dog at ease, and I left for my vacation feeling comfortable and knowing that my dog would have an enjoyable time too. I will definitely leave Suki with Stephanie again.
