About Vanessa

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dear FURends,

I am finally back and super excited to see you all again. Life's been great but nothing beats hanging out with the ones who love you most, the ones who just want to play and be in your arms and lick you until you start laughing hysterically. If you are seeking a dog sitter/walker/animal lover, send your furry friends our way. I'll make sure your pet(s) always have a fabulous day of joy and love. After all, they are the ones that deserve it the most.

Another wonderful stay with Vanessa and Thomas. My dog was showered with love and attention and was clearly very happy there.
Bubbles had such a great time with Vanessa! We got updates via text while we were away and could tell that Bubbles always felt comfortable, and got lots of attention and snuggles. We'll definitely be booking with Vanessa again.
Super responsive sitter! Juju loves Vanessa and was properly exhausted and not anxious in the least by the end of her stay. We look forward to our next stay with her!
My dog had a wonderful stay with Vanessa and Thomas. I felt totally at ease leaving him in their care. He made himself right at home playing and snuggling with them. :)
Rocky had a great time, as always...if I could give more than 5 stars, I would! :)
Another great experience! Rocky came home super happy, as always.
Vanessa is great, and my dog has already been back for a second stay! She loves dogs and gives mine undivided attention. Her place is best for me because my dog is elderly and gets nervous around large/energetic dogs. She only takes one dog at a time and doesn't currently own one.
My elderly pup was very well cared for and doted upon by Vanessa and Thomas. You can immediately tell that Vanessa absolutely adores dogs as soon as you meet her, so I felt good knowing my dog was being showered with love and attention.
Vanessa was incredibly flexible and great with our dog! We will definitely use Vanessa again :)
Vanessa was so flexible, charming, and active that our dog probably wants to live at her house. We got a few photos of him on the go and he was relaxed and clean when we came back!! Thanks, Vanessa! A++++++ and 4 paws up. :)
This is the second time I used Vanessa, and Rocky had a great time! He was super excited when I dropped him off. Vanessa had lots of toys for Rocky, and had no issues giving him his daily medications. Will definitely continue to go back.
Tank had a wonderful time with Vanessa, and he will be back soon!
Vanessa was great! Will definitely be using her again and in fact, already have booked for the end of the month. Rocky usually gets a lot of anxiety when I leave him some place new. When I picked him up he was happy and relaxed and knew he had a great time!
Vanessa was truly amazing with our dog (Sylvie)! She was incredibly understanding when it came to Sylvie's anxieties and made the whole experience very comfortable for everyone. She was very sensitive to our needs and tailored her services accordingly. All in all, we felt that Sylvie was in great hands, and we could tell from the pictures that she was having just as much fun on her vacation as we were on ours. Sadly, we no longer live in the area; otherwise we would certainly be booking Vanessa's services in the future!
Vanessa is a gem! She quickly responded to our last-minute request and went out of her way to make us and our dog comfortable. Amazing care all around!
Vanessa is an amazing host. She was so loving and caring with my dog and she took excellent care of her. She was very flexible with pick up and drop off. She took my dog on many great walks and she had a very nice apartment where my dog was comfortable and welcome. I would highly recommend her!
Vanessa's fantastic! She took Dexter out on the town and sent me pics of them having fun. I think Dexter had a better vacation than I did! I'll definitely ask her to dogsit again.
Vanessa was absolutely wonderful! My little dog was spoiled and entertained and adored. She even bought him a little toy because I didn't bring one! Plus she sent pictures and even a video while I was gone. We will be back! Thank you Vanessa.
