About Sally

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Training only.

I would be willing to train your pup for you or train you to train your pup. All training your pup receives should be used daily at home. If you have no intentions of using their training as a lifestyle change, please do not waste your money. Pups need consistency with each live in family member and guests should be told ahead of time what kind of behavior is allowed until the training becomes routine.

NON-Negotiable Items:

1. Meet & Greets are mandatory for all training courses. This allows me to find out where your pups manners currently are and where you would like them to be.
2. Pups that will be trained by me will need to provide current shot records. Letter of good health from a Vet is acceptable within 2 weeks of their first day of stay if not current on shot records. New shot records and Letters of good health are due at each new visit to keep them current if applicable.
3. Pups training at my home will be crated after a training session so they can process what they learned. There will be outside time allowed, off leash and supervised.

TRAINING: Done throughout the day as running an active household dictates. Pups will get 3 to 5 training sessions a Day depending on time with me and where in the training program they are. Manners are a must. I train your dog to interact politely in my home. I encourage potty and poop on command. No jumping and/or stealing things from counters, tables or hands. No petting while pups are excited. Walks are done on and off Heel depending on their Let's Go.
Order taught, Let's Go, Auto Sit, Heel, Sit at Side, Down at Side, Sit and Down from the front, Come, Sit and Down in Motion, and lastly, Place. These are learned with verbal and hand signals. Your pup will only LEARN these commands here, to Incorporate them into your home will require Consistent and Continual upkeep on the owner's part. This is a lifestyle change. **I want your pup to be safe and welcome no matter where you choose to take them. If they learn to master my home, your friends will enjoy them visiting as well.**

Step One Training Program - 5 or more days scheduled with me is a must. Can be broken up with Overnight or DayCare possible. Your pup will learn Let's go (leash manners), Heel with Automatic Sit and Sit at Side. Sit has an implied stay. Small distractions will be introduced. All off leash training begins with on leash training. The higher standards you set for your pup now the better chances of taking your pup out off leash.


**I added security cameras to my home. It is mandated that I inform all my visitors of this. I will have you sign a notification regarding this before a stay.

**All pup updates can be found at www.facebook.com/SallysDoggieResort . If you would require another update method or just more information please call or email me, I am happy to give a more individualized update on your pups stay.

**Re-evaluating a pup before the next step in training is a given if training is segmented.

As always my dogs had a blast at Sally's. I always feel comfortable leaving them with her and her family. They always come home happy and worn out from playing in Sally's wonderfully big back yard.
Many thanks to Sally as we were able to travel with complete confidence and worry free for the first time ever! Having used kennels in the past it always had the feel of a prison stay for my doggies, at Sally’s it was if they were visiting an Auntie. She has the warmth and instant bonding with the doggies that put us immediately at ease. The updates via photos and video on Facebook really made my mornings as I got up and right away checked to see what Sally posted and to get a peek at the children as I started my day. Additionally, not to be forgotten, the exercise area is a dream come true for my children(doggies) they had this enormous area to run play and interact, they will look forward to visiting again I am certain. I recommend Sally for your vacation needs without hesitation or reservation. Pawsome as they say!

Although Chelsea can't tell us about her stay, actions speak louder than words. She doesn't like it when we are away, but this time she greeted us calmly when we came to pick her up and didn't act like she wanted to get out of there ASAP. I am sure she loved the large back yard and playing with the other dogs.

My dog loves going to Sally's. He comes home tired and happy, all that I can ask for. And I'm thrilled that he gets to spend his nights in a dog pile instead of an impersonal kennel.
Great hosts who kept in excellent communication with us and gave fantastic updates including photos and videos of our dog. Lots of exercise and interaction with host dogs. Overall outstanding rating.
Our experience with Sally was fantastic. She took great care in providing for the special needs of our 10Y old JRT during our extended absence. Sally went out of her way to ensure our pet's comfort, well-being, and safety; she kept us informed, made great judgment calls in our absence, and has great pet intuition. Couldn't ask for anything more -- thank you Sally and DogVacay!

Sally and her family were awesome hosts! She took great care of our 3.5 month old mini australian shepherd, sending us regular updates and pictures, and even giving us a synopsis of her observations regarding his behavior and interactions with other dogs. We have a few other obligations remaining this summer and fall, and will definitely be booking with her again!

Sally was a great host with our two large dogs. Regular updates on how they were doing was much appreciated.
Sally & her family took great care of my dog, Jake.
I was pretty worried about leaving him with strangers... but since i'm new in the area and won't leave him at a kennel and don't have local family, i figured i'd give dog vacay a try.

We did a meet n greet first, and it was clear that Sally really loves dogs and knows how to care for them!
the introductions went smoothly with her 3 dogs.

she has a HUGE fenced back yard.. very awesome!

we left him with her last weekend, and we received multiple photos and text updates, which i really appreciated. everything went great. I would recommend Sally without reservation if you are traveling and can't take your dog with you... he'll have a safe, happy place to stay and it's no more expensive than a most kennels and soooo much better!

Our dogs stay with Sally now every time we go out of town. It's so nice to not have to worry about whether they're stressed like I know they would be if we ever had to use a kennel. It cracks me up that every time we bring them home from Sally's after a trip they're both totally exhausted for at least a full day afterwards. And I love that they have access to her huge backyard, something we don't have at our townhouse. Off-leash time to sniff and play in an environment that's less busy than a dog park is a great thing for them both.

Our dog had a great time with Sally. I'm so glad we could have him stay in such a friendly, welcoming home!
Previously only one of our dogs had stayed with Sally but this time we had both dogs stay with her. She sent us photos to update us on how they were doing, although I had no doubt they would be fine. It's so nice to know that my dogs are being given individual attention, they're comfortable, and they have access to a big back yard in addition to walks! You just can't get that from a boarding facility! We got the dogs home yesterday afternoon they were totally exhausted. We plan to continue using Sally every time we go out of town, as long as she isn't already fully booked!

I was impressed with how Sally and her husband handled their dogs meeting my dog at the meet and greet we'd set up. It was clear that they really understand dog behavior. I felt confident that our dog would be in good hands while we were out of town. Sally sent us one picture while we were away for 6 days; I'm sure if we would've asked for more frequent updates she would've given them to us.

My malamute, Raina, had an excellent stay at Sally's home. She was extremely calm and comfortable at pick up, which rarely happens, but is an excellent sign that she had a happy and comfortable experience. Sally and family seemed very knowledgeable and competent with all aspects of caring for dogs and also multiple dogs. The were genuine dog lovers and I know that Raina was loved while she was there.

My malamute got along fine with Sally's three dogs. Sally has a huge beautiful, fully, and solidly fenced back yard and a spacious and welcoming home. I would strongly recommend her and I most certainly will use her again.

Once again, our dog Beckham had a marvelous visit. He gets excited as soon as we turn down their street (this tells me he is looking forward to it).
Sally and her family are pawsome! Our dog gets excited whenever we pull down the street and he always comes back "new and improved"!
Both of our dogs had a great overnight stay with Sally and a couple other dogs that she was boarding the same night.
Our dog came back "new and improved" after his visit with Sally and her family (and furry family). Sally has a lovely presence about her. She is gentle with the dogs in her care, but she also encourages them to learn new things. I, the owner, found myself lingering at the pick-up just to understand all the wonderful things she had taught him. Sally's family is very sweet and her kids love dogs, so our dog got LOTS of attention. Her home is beautiful - set on a large lot with a fenced in yard. She sent us updates throughout our trip and photos. Selfishly, I worry that she will become so popular that she'll be booked when we need her again (we go back again this weekend), but I also feel it is right for her to have a SPECTACULAR review for what was a wonderful experience for all of us.

Sally has an excellent demeanor with the dogs and puts you at ease that your pet will be in good hands. Ivy is a high energy dog and the big backyard was perfect.
Sally was extremely accommodating; we met with her for a small meet-and-greet before we went on vacation, and we were impressed with how she handled her own dogs, as well as ours. She has a large, fenced back yard for plenty of exercise, as well as a large house. Both of our dogs told us that they had a great time, and would love to go back.

Sally is obviously used to working with dogs and enjoys it. She took her time introducing my Bella to her three and within minutes they were acquainted. She has a lovely large high fenced yard in which the dogs can play. She posted pictures of Bella at play and during walks while I was away. I would highly recommend Sally for your dogs vacay! I felt totally at ease leaving my Bella there and will definitely have Sally watch her again. Additionally, Sally was flexible with pick up times.
