About Agata

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
On your way to an Adirondack retreat, or racing at Saratoga Springs? I am a mystery novelist working from home who misses her "best friend" since she passed away.

I rarely host more than two pups from different households at a time. Your pets have the run of my house and will get plenty of exercise. My canine house guests enjoy several long walks each day, so we both get fresh air and a workout! Special diets? I will happily cook custom meals for your pets. And older pets who require special attention, oral meds and a low-keyed household environment will certainly receive it. In other words, my house is your house while you are away.
Dogs must be housebroken and manageable on leash, please.
Below are photos of a few of my best friends!

Thanks so much, Agata for taking care of our sweet poochie charlie. We (and charlie) appreciate it very much! You are an awesome & wonderful sitter & I highly reccomend you!
Agata was so good with my dog Gucci.
Agata was very flexible when we could do drop off and pick up. She sent a couple of texts and pictures to let me know how everything was going.
Agata's home is all on the first floor which is good for older dogs.
I highly recommend Agata.

Agata seemed to be an experienced pet babysitter and Clinton looked like he made himself at home during his visit. We also liked that he had some doggie visitors while he was there and wasn't alone since he has a little separation anxiety. We hope to be back next summer when we return to the Lake George area.

very friendly and max had a good time with her a very good sitter would recommened for your pet.
This is the 3rd time our little cockapoo has stayed with Agata. It's always a great experience for our dog & us. We don't worry one second while we are away & Agata texts photos & short updates. Our dog seems a little sad for a couple of days after staying with Agata because she misses her! Thanks again !

Thanks again Agata for taking such good care of Addy! We would not trust her with anyone else!
I am 1000% pleased with the care that Agata provided to my little Staffordshire bull terrier, Star. She walked Star several times each day, let her sit on the chair with her, talked to her (talking is very important for my doggie girl)...and she sent me regular pictures besides, just to ease this nervous mom's mind. This was our first time away from our girl. Agata was aware that Ms. Star isn't aggressive, but also doesn't like other dogs and doesn't want to play. She took that in stride. And she stayed up extra late the day BEFORE we were supposed to pick up, just so we could collect Star on our way home from the airport. I'm a little jealous...I think that Star misses Agata! I can recommend Agata whole-heartedly!

I was so pleased when we picked up Jack to see that he was as relaxed as can be. This was his first stay with Agata, just for one night. Agata was so accommodating, and attentive, and cuddled with Jack through a thunderstorm and even took him to a parade. What a huge relief for me, since I have a longer trip planned. It's wonderful to know Jack will be in good hands!

Agata took good care of Mocha while we were away. We drove up to Lake George from NJ for the Memorial Day weekend break, and it was great to have our Mocha close by. Her home is clean. She has a true love for animals, and it shows with her care. She sent us photos of Mocha while staying with her. It gave us peace of mind seeing how happy and rested he was. Thank you Agata, for taking great care of Mocha.

Your pet is in great caring hands with Agata.

Boomer's stay with Agata was wonderful. Boomer has separation anxiety and she makes herself very clear when she is unhappy. With Agata, I can tell that Boomer was very content which made our family so happy. Agata is calm and loving and attentive. I feel like I left Boomer with a family member.

I was headed up to the Adirondacks to a place that did not allow dogs for the weekend. Agata's location was perfect, only being 5 minutes off 87. She only had our dog all weekend and gave him all her attention. I received daily updates and was able to enjoy my vacation. I would definitely not hesitate to leave our dog with her again.

Agata was a delight! Martini took to her immediately and felt right at home. I will have her take care of him again without any reservations. She is a very caring person.
Agata was very accommodating and wonderful to work with. I was heading to Saratoga for a conference and had small windows of time to drop off Andre and pick him up. She was excellent! She sent tons of pictures and gave regular updates. This was Andre's first time, and mine, using DogVacay.com. I feel much more at ease with the process and especially Agata!

Emma had a wonderful stay with Agata. It was her first "dog vacation" and we were very pleased with how easy and quick it was to arrange. Agata was kind and caring, and we picked up a happy dog at the end of the day.
Agata watched our nine month old Havenese puppy and she did a great job. Kept us up to date and sent us pictures so we knew he was having a great time.
Agata was great with Cappuccino. She kept in touch with us everyday and even gave him special food when he refused to eat (because he missed us!) Thank you, Agata! WE are very happy we decided to use DogVacay instead of a kennel.
We were going up to Lake George from Long Island and my usual sitter wasn't available. I found Agata who is in Glens Falls and she was wonderful! Agata is a warm, friendly, person who loves dogs. She has an easy going nature and takes any special instructions seriously. I felt very comfortable leaving my pooch with her and she took excellent care of him. I definitely recommend her and would use her again next time I go up that way.

Agata was the perfect host for my dog Casie. I received pictures and emails throughout Casie's stay. Casie had a great time and gave kisses to Agata when we picked her up to come home with us. I would definitely use Agata again if I'm ever in the Lake George Area.

Agata is awesome! She took in our Lola at the last minute and was super helpful. Her house is really lovely and you can see right away she really cares for the dogs she takes care of. She is very friendly and great with dogs, and gave us regular updates on how Lola was doing, we couldn't ask for more from someone to take care of our dog.

As always Lola loved her DogVacay With Agata. She is the best and I know leaving her there is like leaving her with family.
Agata was great! My husband and I were out of country for a few days and left our puppies with her. She sent us updates via email and kept us informed at all times. When we returned home both Neera and Mowgli sulked for a few hours and looked around for Agata. That's how much they missed her!
Agata is kind, friendly and very good with dogs. She has our highest recommendation and we would not hesitate to leave our pups with her again.

Agata is the best.... Could not imagine leaving Lola with anyone else!
Our dog has only been to Agata's two times but she got really excited as we were traveling down her road almost as if she remembered her from the first time! Zeusafina was well played with and cared for. The host provided pictures and text messages for updates. It is great to know that I can leave my furrbaby with someone who is experienced and enjoys dogs. I will have no hesitation to use Agata's services again. :)

Kathy and I met Agata and immediately knew she was the right person to leave Eddie with for a week. She greated us and Eddie warmly and allowed Eddie to investigate her home . When Kathy and I left Agata we both felt confident that we had found a very caring person to take care of Eddie.

When we left Eddie with Agata he immediately played with another dog . Agata after a few minutes put both of them in her car and off they went to enjoy a ride and a walk. Off Kathy and I went to enjoy our vacation without a worry about Eddie.

During our trip Agata would e-mail notes and pictures of Eddie further reassuring us of the quality of his stay with her.

When Eddie returned home there were no periods of adjustment...he was the same Eddie ...full of life and fun.

We will ask Agata to take care of Eddie when we vacation again... we are very happy that we found Agata and that she took care of Eddie while we were away.

My husband & I were a bit nervous, because where we were traveling from we were not able to first do a meet & greet, but after meeting Agata, we were immediately at ease and knew our little girl, Obi, was in great hands. Agata was very friendly and obviously very experienced with caring for dogs. She updated us on how Obi was doing and also sent us photos. We would definitely use her again and highly recommend her to others. We know if Obi could talk, she would say Agata was "pawsome."

As the "parents" of a small dog, we were nervous about leaving our little one with someone we didn't know. We met with Agata, and it was soon clear that we had nothing to worry about. She was professional and positive. She gave our dog lots of love and treated her as if she were her own (even sharing her bed with our spoiled little one). She shared updates with us regularly throughout the week that we were gone. We would not hesitate to leave our "baby" with her again.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about having our dog stay with Agata for a few days. First of all, Agata is very professional, a sincere dog lover, and truly understands dogs. Our experience with her was top notch from start to finish. Our dog never goes to a kennel and only stays with neighbors or family members when we travel and can't take her with us. Having our dog stay with Agata was just as if she were with family. Agata communicated with us daily on how our dog was doing, and even emailed/texted photos. This was our first time using DogVacay and I would recommend this service to anyone. Agata is truly a blessing and we will definitely have our dog stay with her again!

Thanks! Great flexibility, and we would be confident leaving our dogs with Agata again!
The best host Sasko had!

I'm a choosy parent and always keen in making sure my dog gets the best care when I'm away, especially on long trips.

Agata was perfect! She didn't have too many dogs by only hosting one to 2 dogs at a time. That means my dog gets plenty of attention, love, and supervision.

Sasko had plenty of walks, hikes, and attempted swimming (he's afraid of the water). Agata sent pictures and updates every day.

She was very caring and loving. I instantly felt comfortable leaving my dog the when we met. She made sure she knew my dog's habits so she can give him a personalized care.

No doubt the best host ever! So much so my dog didn't even look twice when my friend and I left. He felt comfortable and happy. I couldn't have asked for more. My dog actually missed her for a full day after we picked him up. :-)

My dog was well cared for the entire trip, Agata is great!
Lola had a great experience with Agata as always, she is simply the best!
Agata as always is the best!
Agata is the best! Oscar G.
Agata is wonderful! Would highly recommend her to anyone in the area. She loves animals and her home is warm and inviting. My dog Lola loves her! Oscar
Agata was prompt and gracious. We couldn't have been more comfortable entrusting our dog to her.
Agata was an amazing host to my 2 dogs for a week long vacation, plus extra unexpected day due to major snow storm. This was the first time we had ever left our dogs with anyone other than relatives so were very nervous. She made the whole separating process so simple and reassuring and asked all the right questions. She actually texted photos every now and then of our dogs playing throughout the week. They made me feel happy and satisfied that I had made the right choice. Our dogs have never been so disappointed to see us. I guess it's not just people that hate when vacation is over!

Agata is great and Lola loves spending time with her, I encourage any dog lovers near Glens Falls to leave your dog with her.
Agata was fantastic with our 2 dogs. Chihuahuas. We had never left them for a month, and they had never been around other dogs, but, from the first moment they loved her and she was in control. She was very attentive to their quirky personalities, took them for many daily walks, gave them great treats and lots of love! They were sad to leave! We would highly recommend Agata!! She emailed us with pix and updates so we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation fully.

My wife and I could not be happier with Agata's lovely service - and of course our pup was happy too. Agata was warm and generous and she provided a lovely home for our Olive. We will certainly use her again.
I think that Agata is amazing. She messaged me every day that I was away with a picture of my Lola. You can tell that she loves animals and my baby was super happy with her. I would recommend anyone in the area that is going away to leave their pet with her. She is the best and I do not trust just anyone with my dog. She has a lovely home and is always there with your pet. Any time in the future that I need to leave and can not take her with me, I will leave her in the caring hands of Agata!

I feel fortunate to have found Agata! You can tell that she has a true love for dogs and spent time really getting to know our dog. We received daily updates so we had peace of mind knowing that he was well taken care of. We have always been reluctant to board him but now we can take time away knowing that our pup will be in good hands. Thank you Agata!

Agata was great! She gave Suzie lots of exercise and kept us informed by text what she was doing each day, including photos. I would highly recommend her to anyone; it sure beats having to leave your dog in a kennel! Suzie had a nice comfortable home to stay in and lots of attention, even a space on the bed at night!

Lexi seemed to have a nice time on her dog vacay. Agata was very nice and you could tell her genuine love for the dogs. I got an email during the day detailing all the activities they did....and they did a lot.
Agata was a wonderful host. She provided a loving weekend home for my dog Tess. Lots of long walks and fun. Thank you, Agata!
