About Sara

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a stay at home mom with a 10 month old baby boy. I have a wonderful golden retriever and she loves friends! Our family has plenty of love to give but aren't quite ready for another one of our own pups. We've had dogs our whole lives and would like to spread some love at the same time helping out. If you want a loving family to take care of and walk your dog, we are interested! Our home is located near two dog parks and Millcreek Canyon, so there are lots of adventures to be had.
**our pool is dog friendly too!!

Our sweet girl had a great time at Sara's! Sara was so kind and easy to work with that I had absolutely no worries about leaving our dog with her over the weekend. It feels nice to have someone that treats your dog like family. I feel very fortunate to have found her and would definitely use her again. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family!

Awesome. Would totally use again.
Absolutely loved having our dog stay with Sara ! We went and met with her a few weeks before our actual vacation and made sure that everything would work out for both of us. Sara answered all the questions we had and made us feel comfortable- we have never left our pet with anyone but family! While we were gone Sara sent us pictures and a little update on Cozy. We are most certainly going to stay with Sara again!!

Sara does an excellent job! I've really got no suggestions on how to improve.
Sara and her husband, Matt, are charming and personable, easy to communicate with and very flexible in their drop off and pick up times. their home is beautiful and shady and very dog friendly. I will be happy to leave Lola with them again when I go out of town. I really enjoyed the texts and pictures of Lola's activities while I was gone.

Sara was fantastic. Very accommodating. Nice home. Appeared very clean. My golden had a great stay. I'm sure we'll use Sara again!
Sara and her husband took great care of Bear. We did a quick meet-n-greet prior to the stay and my dog got along with their dog immediately. They have a beautiful house with a fully fenced backyard and a pool. They were also very accommodating with the pick-up time and it worked out great. Bear looked clean and happy. Pretty sure Bear will be staying there again!

Sarah was excellent. Our dog Moe loved her and her family. He really enjoyed his vacation and it was like he never left home. Sara put all of my concerns of leaving my dog completely at ease. I will definitely go back to Sara and her family.
Being new puppy parents, we were very nervous about where our Golden Retriever, Jax, was going to stay while we were out of town. Luckily, we stumbled upon Sara and Wrigley's account here on DogVacay, and can say with 100% confidence, Jax has found his forever 2nd home. Sara and her family treat Jax as family, and their home is such a positive place for pups; there is a dog friendly pool (where Jax actually learned how to swim, and now we can't keep him out of water -- he loves it!), and Wrigley is the best role model (Jax comes home with better manners after every stay). Jax loves playing at their home so much that he now goes there for daycare. We are so fortunate to have found Sara, and highly recommend her! :)

One of my family members usually watches Nika when we go out of town but they were away. Sara was great even though little Nika had some anxiety and was sad. Nika was probably not the easiest guest but Sara was great and I would highly recommend her to anyone! I am sorry Sara had to deal with Nika but at the same time, if it had to be anyone I am glad it was her. She is wonderful!

I wouldn't check anyone else, if Sara is available you can't go wrong!

Sara took great care of our Pepper! Pepper had such a good time that we honestly think she was bummed to go home. We could tell she missed her new friends....which is very telling as to what kind of care she received from Sara. Sara also sent cute photos of Pepper while we were away, which was a really nice touch. We highly recommend Sara!

Sara was so great! She was so accommodating, had a pool for the dogs to swim in which our dog LOVED, and she sent us frequent pictures and updates while we were away. I will most certainly book with her again!
Sara and her husband were great and patient. I can tell my little spend a great happy weekend. There is no doubt I will have Sara taking care of my little next time. Another thing makes me thankful was they tolerating my plan changed. They waited for me to picked up my dog until 10:30 pm! Thank you so much.

I wish I could give 10 stars! I was so nervous about leaving our 5 mo old sensitive pup...but once I met Sara I knew he was in good hands. Thanks to Sara's care I was able to have a worry free trip and I loved the photo updates of my relaxed and happy puppy. Sara's dog was so welcoming and gentle with him, and the environment was so dog friendly that I was worried he would not want to come home from this amazing place. Watching a puppy is not an easy job but Sara supported his quirks and training in a stride. I can't say enough about this excellent boarding experience!!!

Sara and her husband were great. Our dog Dexter came home happy and exhausted from all the fun he had.
Another worry free trip thanks to Sara. She goes above and beyond to make sure our dogs are happy and having a good time. Thanks
This was the first time we used Sara to watch our dog Lilly, and we would definitely use her again. She responded quickly to our sitting inquiry, and after our "meet and greet" we felt very comfortable leaving our pup in her care. While watching Lilly she kept us up to date with daily pictures so we knew our dog was having a good time. Sara did an excellent job!

Sara is very sweet. Brodie seemed happy. Thanks!
Sara was so awesome. She was very responsive and walked ius through all the steps as we were first-timers. She sent pictures of Jax daily and we knew she was in a perfect environment. She walked Jax daily and sometimes multiple times a day. We definitely will use Sara again if she is up for the puppy challenge. What a comfort to know your dog is in a good place while you are gone.

Sara was great to work with. We knew our puppy was in good hands and we plan on using Sara over and over!
Sara was awesome, very friendly and easy-going. She and her own dog liked mine right away and I knew it was going to be a good experience. She even sent pics of my dog and their activities while I was away. I would definitely recommend her and use her again.

my puppy Lucy had very happy time with Sara's sitting while we were on vacation. we will make reservation for Lucy with Sara for next vacation. mimi
My two little dogs had a great day with Sara and her family. They were happy and calm when I dropped them off and when I picked them up. I'm very happy to have found a terrific sitter for my little friends.
Great host! Sara took our last minute reservation which saved the day. They treated our dogs like their own. Nice secure yard and a dog friendly pool. We will be sending our dogs to Sara's house again. Thanks
