About Alicia

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
NEW Updated Policy~1-3-17: All dogs are required to be up-to-date on Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper vaccines and also be spayed/neutered if old enough (>1 yr.) We are boarding more puppies, and we want to protect every dog that boards with us. A paper copy of your dogs vaccine records will be kept on file in our home, in case anything ever happens. (I'll be happy to explain in more detail if needed.) All Dogs MUST have a collar and ID Tag when boarding.

We welcome your furry baby to come stay at our house while you're out of town. Don't want your furbaby to stay by him/herself or in a kennel, still a puppy in training, or on the older side that needs more attention. We will give them all the love and care they need. We designed our house and backyard for all our furry friends!! We have 2 dogs, so your dog can join on pack. We send you pictures and video to see all the action and fun they're having on their own vacation. I work primarily from home, so your dog is not left in a crate all day. There is tons of play time outside if weather permits and toy time inside.

Very flexible & great communicator. Sent pics & a video! Will definitely use again and recommend to other dog owners!
Marley had a great time! This was very affordable and easy!
Our puppy was safe and secure with Alicia. We were very happy with the experience.
Took us in at the last minute. Responsive in communication. Leaving your dog in good hands with Alicia.
Great experience. Would recommend.
This was my first experience with DogVacay and it was great. Alicia was very friendly and accommodating to our needs and schedule. We got our Mona back happy and healthy! We will definitely be using again in the future.
Great person and my fur kid had a blast. I recommend her 100%
Alicia has done a great job. Arlo seems to get plenty of playtime.
I felt comfortable leaving Teddy with Alicia while we were gone for a 10 night vacation. She sent me pictures and updates. Alicia is very friendly and personable and did a great job taking care of our baby!!
We returned to a happy, healthy dog. It's clear from photos and updates that Alicia puts time and energy into getting to know each dog's personality and temperament. Lots of play time and honoring Toffee's specific dietary needs were major factors in our decision and experience. We have already recommended Alicia to 2 other families!
This was the first time we used the app. We were nervous about leaving Rosie with someone we didn't know. After meeting Alicia and seeing the home that they had customized for keeping dogs I feel very at ease leaving Rosie in her hands. Overall a really good experience and we will come back.
My puppies has a great stay! Alicia was great in communicating how they were. We will definitely keep her in mind for their next stay.
Seems as if Arlo had a good time playing with other pups. Alicia was very welcoming and put us at ease. I liked the outdoor area where the puppys could play and romp.
Good place and very nice people. They are well set-up to handle your pet. Alicia knows what she is doing for sure.
Alicia took great care of our pup, as always. She was very flexible when we had to add another night at the last minute.
Alicia had been wonderful in caring for my two (rather unruly!) German Shepherds for the past few weeks. She agreed to provide a special service for me (visiting my home mid-day for potty break/feeding) when others were not willing or able. She is professional, reliable, and responsive. You can really tell she loves animals! I would recommend her services to anyone with fur babies.
Alicia did a fantastic job with Chloe and Zoey. Will definitely be using her again. Alicia's facility is very well maintained and clean. Couldn't have asked for a better sitter for our dogs.
Don't hesitate to board or leave your dog here for daycare or overnight boarding. Very nice couple with a beautiful HUGE piece of property. Very accommodating. I was moving to Greensboro for a temporary medical job and I needed someone to watch my dog while I got moved into my apartment. I didn't now anyone in Greensboro, and it was just me and the dog. It was a load off my mind to know my dog was somewhere safe and taken care of while I tended to what I needed to do. A couple days later, I needed them again, and they had no problem taking him again. I would definitely recommend these folks!!
Alicia is always fantastic! Ava loves her stays there, and comes home happy & tired out!
I'm so thankful for Alicia for being able to care for my two puppies! Very flexible and accommodating! I was very nervous with only having them for a month and had not been away from them overnight yet, she made me feel very confident and comfortable about leaving them!!! My puppies will definitely be back to stay for future vacations!!! Thanks Alicia
We were traveling to North Carolina to attend the International Furniture Market and needed a place for Bentley , our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to stay . After interviewing several dog sitters , we chose Alicia . It was a great decision ! She treated Bentley like one of her own ! She sent me photos and updates daily . We will certainly call her again !!
This was the first time I boarded my boys for more than one night. I have to say I was a little nervous leaving them for a week. Although they seemed to be excited about seeing me when I got back, you could tell that they were well taken care of. I wouldn't have a problem taking them back knowing that they will be fine. The pictures Alicia sent was an added bonus.

Alicia is fantastic! I feel so comfortable leaving my dog with her, and Maci loves it!
We were so happy to leave our dog with Alicia for the weekend. We will definitely have her stay again, as Alicia thinks of everything! The space is well laid out, they were able to accommodate or schedule, and I know our dog was happy and got lots of excercise.
We never let Marty stay with anyone but family because he's a pretty active and high energy dog (Weimaraner). Alicia was very responsive and very flexible to our needs and forever-changing schedule. We got pictures of our bud over the weekend and had a happy dog to bring home.

The property is intentionally laid out and easily can accommodate multiple sizes, ages, and breeds. Two separated, well-fenced yards and away from noise. Well worth the investment to have a relaxing weekend and no worries.
The dogs are feeling better with Alicia & adjusting to the way things are done. They get to run free in the big back yard which makes me happy ??
Alicia was wonderful! She responded quickly to our questions and request. We were traveling from the coast and was very accommodating. Will definitely use if we are in town again.
Thank you Alicia for taking such good care of my babies. :)
Alicia's great. Couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable dog sitter. After our initial meet-n-greet, I never had a concern about leaving my dog with her. She has a great setup with two separate fenced yards for dogs to run & play. Really great.
Pepe' had a blast with this sitter. I will definitely be using this sitter again. Easy and convenient drop off and pick up times. Pep' does't get to socialize a lot with other dogs, so it was good that he was able to get some play time in.
Lola had a great time at Alicia's!! She was able to play inside and out. I felt very comfortable leaving her. The yard area was wonderful. Lola went 2 days in a row for day care and she was so excited on day two when she realized she was back there.
I would highly recommend Alicia and will be using her again.
Alicia is always accommodating and very pleasant to work with. The dogs seem to love her and always have a good time. She even replaced Rigby's Gentle Leader that he destroyed while under her care. I have looked at other sitters, but it is difficult to find someone as set up as Alicia, so we keep coming back and will continue to do so.
Alicia is a true dog lover, and very flexible to accommodate the needs of her guests
We were VERY impressed with Alicia and her knowledge of dogs. Collette (our dog) so enjoyed her time in their home and we felt very comfortable with having her stay for 11 days! We had never been away from our dog for so long and we were just thrilled with the daily photos and updates Alicia sent. This is our first experience with dogvacay--and we are just beyond the moon with how wonderful Collette's experience was. We can't wait to plan a another trip out of town---and I know Collette will look forward to her vacation at Alicia's too!
Alicia is an amazing host! You can tell Alicia has a passion for all things dogs and I felt comfortable leaving my puppy with her while I was out of town. Her home is customized for dogs. When I picked Sasha up, she was so wore out from playing, she slept for a good part of the next day!
very happy & relieved that my dogs did so well in my absence as I thought Homer might be depressed, but he was much happier getting to stay with his brother. I love that they had a big back yard to play in even though it rained a lot.
Alicia has a great place for my dogs to run and play. They came home happy and ready for naps. Alicia is also very accommodating with drop off and pickup times. I feel confident she has the dogs best interest at heart.
Our Bichon, Teddy, thoroughly enjoyed himself at Alicia's house. She was careful to make sure that the dogs played well together. She has two huge fenced areas in her backyard. Lots of room for playing!
Alicia was great, as always! :) SO flexible and accommodating!
Alicia is great and so accommodating!!! :) She loves dogs and will take great care of yours!!!
Alicia is fantastic. Our Nelly has a great time when she visits. Highly recommended!
Our dogs had a great time with Alicia. They didn't seem to miss us at all. We'd recommend her to anyone who is nervous about leaving their pets.
Alicia V is a wonderful dog host!! She made Bo feel right at home. I love the pictures she sends to us while we are gone- lets me see how happy Bo is with new people and dog friends. Having Alicia close by has enabled us to feel comfortable leaving our beloved 11 year old buddy to travel. Thanks!!!!
Mya had a great time at Alicia's playing and hanging out with the other vacationers. She made a new friend! Alicia is great with animals and her love for them shows in the care she provides. Mya will definitely be vacationing with Alicia again. Thank you, Alicia!
she saved me in a pinch. last minute work trip to NC on my way to a wedding for the weekend so i had no choice but to bring Zoe along. Her flexibility was a godsend!
My dog's begged me since the day I picked him up to please, please, please take him back to Alicia's. A wonderful experience. Owners know their dogs and mine loved his vacay. I highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable! I felt very comfortable leaving our 6 month puppy with Alicia. It was easy to see from the first few minutes that she is passionate about the services provided. Will definitely use again and will recommend to friends/family.
Amazing stay!!!!!!
Chloe had a great time with Alicia and her pups. Alicia's knowledge and experience made me feel comfortable leaving Chloe for a long weekend. Thanks, Alicia!
Zoey had a great time. She was well taken care of. Alicia loves dogs and you can tell by how she takes care of the. I will be using this service again!
Alicia provided good care of our 6-month old puppy. He seemed happy and comfortable there and we won't hesitate to call on Alicia in the future. We especially appreciated ongoing photos and texts from Alicia letting us know what our Max was doing. The pictures were reassuring and always made us smile!

We give this experience 5 stars!
Lucy had a wonderful time at Alicia's for four nights! She was happy to go into the house with Alicia's husband, and came out swinging with Alicia's dog when I picked her up! I would highly recommend this wonderful couple for your dog stay. We will use them again; if they will have Lucy!
Thank you!
Alicia took good care of my pooch when I was out of town. She made sure to send periodic photos so I'd know all is well and does a great about testing a dog's temperment with other dogs before putting them together to play. Her prices are fair, she's very pleasant to work with, and I'll definitely consider using her again in the future!
Alicia and Matthew love my Peaches as I do.......I have no reservations whatsoever about the love and care they give to our treasured pets!!!
Alicia is awesome! We left our dog with Alicia for the weekend and she was very responsive and super friendly every time I checked with her.
Our dog Lucy seems to have had a good stay with Alicia and from what I was told by Alicia behaved herself!
Alicia very kindly sent us two photos and a little note showing us that Lucy looked very happy while we were away.
I would highly recommend Alicia, she seems to have a special bond with dogs.
Peaches appeared to have experienced a wonderful loving stay with Alicia and Matt. Both parents exhibit a true pet caring attitude and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and again. Thank you so much guys!!!!!
Alicia was a wonderful host to our Nelly dog. She has to take a variety of medications and they were administered with no problems whatsoever. I also love the flexibility afforded and her location- very convenient!
Great host and location. I was comfortable the whole time I was away with my puppy because she gave me timely text updates. Emma seems happy and comfortable too when I picked her up. I will definitely make a reservation with her again, in the future.
This was our first experience with pet sitter. I must say we have found a real gem
The first time I met Alicia for a meet and greet with our Mackie I came home and told my husband that she is a dog whisperer. Seriously, she knew every move that her dog and my dog was going to make before they made it. She was so great, I completely trusted her with our furry baby during the holidays. She sent many pictures of him playing and snuggling. Alicia is very organized and is aware of different doggy temperaments- so she is even good with the trouble children (like our little guy who is mischievous and can be territorial). Thank you so much Alicia!!!!! We will definitely be calling on her again. ....p.s....on a side note- as we were leaving from dropping Mackie off, my daughter said, "I hope Mackie will be ok"....a neighbor of Alicia's was walking her dog and heard my daughter's remark. She responded kindly, assuring us that Alicia takes great care of her charges, and that she also trusts Alicia with her own dog. We felt good about Alicia before, and that reinforced it for us!
Our dog Boone was very happy after staying with Alicia! He was well taken care of and we felt very comfortable since Alicia has a background of working at a vet's office. Very reasonable price and easy to book too! Lots of other dogs visit but Alicia is good at managing who can play together! Overall very happy with Boone's vacay experience!
Alicia is absolutely wonderful! Frequently, and some times at last minute, I have to go on business travel domestically & internationally. Alicia has been so understanding, caring & compassionate. She sends me photos of my dogs while I am away so I can see how they are enjoying their stay, which puts me at ease. She is very communicative and is always right there to help me when I drop them off & pick them up! I would highly recommend Alicia, I cannot say enough great things about her!
