About Betsy

Because I'm such a nut about my own small dog, I understand the worry that goes into leaving town. I worry she won't have lots of blankets to burrow under or won't be allowed to sleep under the covers like she does at home. If you have those same concerns, no matter how silly they may seem, I understand.

Working from home allows me to provide the most attention to any dog guests we have. My husband and I own our own home where we have a large fenced yard and we live within blocks of a handful of parks. Our house is mostly carpeted and in areas it is not (for those who don't like hard surfaced floors) there are rugs. In case you are leaving town by plane, the Portland Airport is a quick drive and easy to access from where we live. There is also a vet office about two blocks away in case we ever needed one!

Our little Zoe stayed with Betsy for over a week while we went on vacation and all we know is Zoe had a great time!!! Betsy was so thoughtful; sending us pictures almost daily to show Zoe was getting along well. She was super professional and very thorough in ensuring key items such as food, toys and love were given to our little pup. Definitely our go to place moving forward…Betsy you rock =)

I was so nervous about leaving little Aussie with anyone while we were away, but Betsy was just fantastic. She allowed Aussie to make himself totally at home, and he even slept on their bed like he does with us. We really appreciated and enjoyed the photos she regularly sent through, and it was very reassuring to see how happy and relaxed Aussie obviously was. I will definitely be using Betsy anytime we need to go away again, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending her as an excellent carer. Thank you so much Betsy!

We had a wonderful experience with Betsy and our two dogs. She was accomodating with our drop off times. We met first before committing to make sure it would be a great fit for our dogs. We will definitely use Betsy again if needed! We were provided with daily photos of our two pups and communication through text message. Our dogs seemed to love her house! Thanks again!!! Don't hesitate!

This was my first experience using DogVacay and it was amazing! Betsy was kind, caring, easy to get in touch with and made everything great! Even before I left my dog with her I knew it was going to be a great experience. My dog can be a bit of a snob and only want his mom, but he took to Betsy instantly. He was at ease when I left him and perfectly calm when I picked him up. And Betsy kept me updated while I was away. I didn't worry about him at all! Looking forward to Gio's next visit, he had an excellent time!

Another great experience through Dog Vacay. Betsy and Ivy welcomed my two boys into their lovely home with a great yard and plenty of area rugs for my little one (who has a hardwood floor phobia). Betsy responded to my meet-and-greet request quickly, was very flexible around my drop-off and pick-up times, and provided updates even though the stay was a short one. We'll be back for sure!

We were so delighted to find Betsy to care for Bean & Van while we were on vacation in Mexico. Bean & Van both are a little quirky & require some specifics which Betsy had no problem with. She sent us updates & pictures of Bean & Van daily which really put us at ease. Her home is lovely & very dog friendly with a large fenced in yard that I know our pups loved. We'd leave Bean & Van with Betsy & her family again in a second because we know they'd we cared for like they were her own! :)

Left my Zoey with Betsy for two nights. Got some updates. Zoey seems like she had fun and Betsy was really cool about accommodating our travel needs. Will use her again.
Betsy was such a dream to work with! It was my first time leaving my new puppy with a sitter and Betsy ended up being the perfect choice. She communicated quickly and clearly, was incredibly patient with all the quirks of a very young dog, and sent me daily updates that always made me smile. It was such a relief to know that my puppy was happy, safe, and very well loved while I was out of town - I will definitely be using Betsy's services again in the future.

5 Stars! Betsy was awesome. She took such great care of our little Chauncey, and kept us updated often. Highly recommend, and we will definitely use her again.
We have left our dog Ben with Betsy a few times now, and we could not be any happier with her service. She treats him just like her own dog, and updates us daily of his condition. We are very glad we found her. Now, we travel with peace of mind knowing our dog is well taken care of.

My dog, Riley had a wonderful and fun stay while at Betsy's. I highly recommend Betsy to anyone with a small pup. I received pics of Riley while out of town that eased my mind and made me aware that he was happy. What great service! Betsy is friendly, trustworthy and easy going. Her home is warm and cozy and my dig seemed comfortable the minute we walked in. I will without a doubt be using her services again.

My dog, Padre', was really happy to have stayed with Betsy and was cared for with great attention. He has never had such a good time away from home! I am so glad I found them and hope I can make use of their services again in the future. He came home totally happy and needed no recovery time like he did when I had left him at a kennel in the country. Total round-the-clock care!

Betsy took such good care of my sweet Peaches. She was easy to get a hold of every time I wanted to check on my baby. She even sent me a picture! Such a relief to not worry, I was able to enjoy being out of town for a change. I will be using Betsy exclusively from now on for pet sitting! Thank you Betsy!

Betsy was great. She was very friendly and kept us updated daily of how our dog was doing. Our dog, Ben, seemed to have had such a good time, he wasn't really anxious to go back with us. I highly recommend Betsy. She is a great dog sitter, and will give you a peace of mind while you are away.
