About Natalie

I specialize in pampering small and tiny dogs, including senior citizens. I understand that they need calm, safe surroundings away from larger dogs, cats, and children. I provide soft beds with blankets, which are essential for burrowers. The good-sized back yard is completely secure. I love small dogs and will treat your tiny saint with the gentle care s/he deserves.

As always, Natalie took great care of Gracie. She gives a lot of extra TLC and Gracie loves Natalie. She texts or emails daily updates with pictures which is awesome. Thanks Natalie!
Natalie is super nice, she took care of our dog, Alison, for the day (about 12 hours). We got photos throughout the day including one from a park. At first I was worried about her dog and my dog getting along but by the end of the day they seemed to be fine with each other. I would feel comfortable using her services again.
This is the second time we left our pup with Natalie (overnight stay). He's a shy little guy, and I can tell Natalie is sensitive to his anxiety and tries to strike a nice balance between giving him attention and giving him his space. Her home is warm and her yard is secure, and I feel very confident that my dog is in good hands with her. It's a great place to leave a small dog that might be overwhelmed in other day care or boarding environments.
Makko got the best TLC from Natalie for a week. We got fun photo updates almost daily. We enjoyed our out-of-town vacation, and Makko had his memorable Christmas holiday as well! Thanks much, Natalie.
Natalie was a most gracious hostess to my shih-tzu Daisy. We were coming from out of town to visit a relative, and could not do a "meet & great" but everything worked out very well. Highly recommend!
Georgia had THE BEST time with Natalie and her dog Kahlo. My partner and I joked that our dog was at summer camp because you could tell she was having fun. Every day we were treated to great pictures of Georgia along with clever texts from Natalie. It helped make our trip. We knew Georgia was in good hands so it allowed us to focus on relaxing and enjoying our time away. Natalie really understands dogs and the needs of small dogs in particular. At our meet-n-greet I thought her questions were very thorough and her communication style clear. I knew right away that this would work out well and it did. I can't recommend Natalie highly enough. She's fantastic!
Natalie was great! Would definitely use her again! Our dog is leery of strangers, but Natalie handled it like a champ. She took the time to understand our pup's personality and gave him the quiet, comfortable space he needed! You can tell she loves small dogs and will take care of your dog as if it were her own.
Natalie is great! She provides the perfect home away from home for little dogs. Midora is a little sketchy around others, but seemed to be at ease. We got nice updates each day and when Midora wasn't eating, she communicated immediately so we could all be at ease. Little Kahlo (Natalie's pup) is great with visitors as well.
I was so pleased with the care that Natalie gave my dog Gracie. She was kind enough to take care of her with a very last minute reservation. Natalie communicated with me regularly by email morning and evening to update me on how Gracie was doing. She also sent pictures along with the emails. The emails she sent were detailed and showed what a caring person she was with Gracie. She included funny stories of some of Gracie's antics as she is quite a character. I couldn't have felt more comfortable knowing she was in good hands. When I picked Gracie up we had a nice conversation on how her stay was. She walked us to the car and made sure to say goodbye to Gracie as we got her in her crate to travel. It was obvious she is a dog lover and I highly recommend Natalie as a great host for Dogvacay.
