About Tanya

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a Registered Nurse (and my partner is working professional) and we, along with our very friendly rescued poodle mixes, Wrigley & Griffey, are offering short and long term dog sitting in our clean and spacious NW Calgary home. We have over thirty years of experience caring for dogs of varying ages, breeds and temperaments. We have also been a volunteer foster home for a local dog rescue organization for the past three years.

We understand that it can be stressful to go away and trust that Rover will be well looked after, so we would love to give you that piece of mind and welcome your dog(s) into our family. We offer a fun, happy, safe, mentally and physically stimulating, worry free vacay for your dog(s) while you are away. We will keep you up to date with daily photos and messages if you would like! We both work varying shifts so there are very few occasions when a human isn't in the home. A typical Rover Sleep Over will depend on each vacay-tioner’s needs, as well as what specifics you might want for your Rover, but can include;
- at least two leash walks per day
- an abundance of fun play time
- human and canine socialization
- outdoor activities (weather permitting)
- relaxing cuddle time
- belly rubs!

We have a nice sized chain-link fenced yard for playing and have lots of green space and pathways in our neighbourhood as well. Vacay-tioners will have free-range throughout the home, can help themselves to the giant basket of toys, and are welcome to join us on the furniture! We are also able to take dogs with medical issues or that require medication, including injections.

We only take one guest at a time so we can give your dog lots of attention, however, we do accept more than one dog at a time if they are from the same family.

Thanks so much for considering us with the very important responsibility of caring for your dog(s)! Please feel free to ask any questions.

Tanya was great with our dog Abby. Abby is really shy, and she managed to gain her trust. She has a great house, huge yard and spent time taking care of our pet, we really enjoyed daily updates. Definitely will go back.

A lot of thanks to Tania, Dave, Wrigley and Griffley!!
This was the first time Suna (my pup) had to stay with someone overnight other than family or friends. Tanya, Dave, Wrigley and Griff were amazing! Suna played hard with Wrigley and Griff and Tanya kept me updated daily with pictures and stories of Suna's stay.

I would have Tanya and her family watch Suna anytime now. Suna will miss having playtime with her new friends Wrigley and Griff. It will be hard to keep her busy now that she doesn't have her friend to play with.

Thanks Tanya for a great first experience with DogVacay overnight stays!

Jane and Suna :)
Tanya was great and will definitely use her again. Her house is large and clean with a nice fenced yard.
My dog is a senior and she took very special care of him. She asks question about his likes and dislikes before our trip so that she was well prepared for his arrival.
She sent pictures while we were away showing how happy he was there.
Thanks again Tanya
Chloe had a great vacay staying with Tanya. I received updates and pictures daily which assured me Chloe was having a great time. She loved playing with Tanya's dog Wrigley.
It was a great comfort to us that Chloe was happy and being cared for so well in a home while we were away.
I would definitely recommend Tanya!
Tanya was great at watching our dog. She sent us tons of pictures and text messages. Our dog was kept busy and had a great time until we returned. I would recommend Tanya to watch my dog anytime!!!!!!
Fantastic!! I have two rescue dogs who, having had the experience of being abandoned, get sad when they are left behind. Tanya gave them extra care and attention, took them for walks and engaged them in play. My sad puppies turned the corner and started to play again, in a very short time. I am deeply grateful to Tanya for her daily updates and beautiful pictures of my puppies. It breaks my heart having to leave my pets, so Tanya helped all of us have a much easier time during our separation. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
Our little dog had a great time at Tanya's place. Tanya was very nice to update us every other day as requested. We will definitely go back for daycare or boarding since our dog had so much fun spending time with Wrigley the resident pet.
Our dog was so well taken care of for the 9 nights he stayed with Tanya. He came home healthy, happy and missing Wrigly! The photo and email updates were very much appreciated and we felt so much better knowing that our precious pooch was with such caring hosts. The fact that Tanya asked so many questions ahead of time was also very, very appreicated, as she took the time to understand our dog and his specific needs. Our pup will definately be "vacationing" with them again!
Our dog WallE stayed at Tanya's place for 4 nights. Each day, Tanya sent us 4-6 photos from morning to evening to update WallE's status. From the photos, I can see that WallE had lots of active fun time, from fetching toys,balls, to outdoor walking. It's hard for any dog to leave his pack and stay at a new place. Tanya took very detailed notes about WallE's habits to make sure WallE's staying comfortable as much as possible. And Tanya's own pup, Wrigley has a such sweet gentle soul that I guess he could get along with any kind of dogs. Anyway, it's such a relief to see WallE enjoyed his "camp" while we were going to our vacation and not feeling guilty.
I wanted to quickly reach out to say how much I really appreciate everything Tanya does for our little furry baby. She really showed great concern and care with my pup and I love her picture and video updates. She has gone above and beyond in her services for us and I tell her quite often how much we value her. I went away on vacation and came back to a clean and happy pup. Tanya is always cheerful and happy, and I know she loves WuKong like her own. I can't tell you how much that means to me. I would really like to come back when dog vacay is needed. Thank you Tanya!
Our little guy stayed with Tanya and Dave for over two weeks and he had a fabulous time. It's so nice to be able to find such a wonderful home to watch over our dog while we were away. They treated him like a little king while we were away with lots of walks, cuddles and playtime. We really appreciated our daily updates which included videos, pictures and messages. Tanya and Dave opened their doors to our dog with such love and kindness and we were so thankful to have found people like them. He can't wait to go back for another doggy vacay. Thank you Tanya and Dave :)
Both our dogs were well taken care off and Tanya was very easy to work with. She kept in contact with photos showing the dogs having fun and interacting. You can see Tanya genuinely loves dogs and I would have no problem using her again or recommending her to anyone.

Thank you Tanya
Their are certain people who do things for money and certain people who do things simply because they enjoy it.

Tanya is amazing I couldn't ask for a better dog companion, I got regular updates and Sasha got much love and Much exercise while we were away.

After I showed up she said hi then was ready to go back to where she was sleeping

Thanks Tanya I don't think Sasha could have been better cared for. Your the Best.
Tanya took excellent care of Maple, and from the pictures she sent us each day, we could see that Maple was really enjoying herself. We would definitely like to use their services again in the future.
