About Beverly

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
"BE KIND AND HAVE FUN TOGETHER."

YOUNG PUPPIES TO SENIOR PUPS ARE ALL WELCOME HERE.

As a former Foster Mom for Maltese Rescue, I enjoy the attitude, sensitivity, and intelligence of the smaller breeds. I have cared for Pomeranians, Yorkies, Lhasa Apso, Shih Tzu, Maltese, Chihuahua and others, as well as Chi-Weenies, etc. Many of our guests are repeat visitors.

I am author of Passion for Tea, available on Amazon, and a part-time editor for an author/university professor, I often spend an hour or so at my computer early in the morning. I do not work outside my home.

Charley, my Maltese, (or perhaps a Malti-Poo), and Stanley, the 12-lb. Chihuahua rescued from Pets and People, are both wonderful hosts and have not yet met a dog they do not get along with. They are very patient with our puppy guests. Also, to be safe rather than sorry, on February 5 each received his final Canine Flu Shot against a flu epidemic that is beginning to spread across the U.S. (although not yet in OK, the last I heard).

We usually limit our guest list to two pets, although for short stays we might accept three. I often give my pets a respite and we take a few days off between guests. At the end, they begin staring at me, seeming to say, "Where are our buddies?"

Our home is in an area with underground utility wires, so there is little or no chance of loss of heat or electricity. (In the eleven years we have lived here, recall only one three-hour period of electrical loss.) ,

We have a pet door and/or a bell to ring to our covered patio as well as an escape-proof backyard. If a pet is not familiar with a doggy door, I respond to a whine, a jingle of the bell, or a bark when your pet wants to go outdoors.

If your dog or doggies enjoy being exercised on a leash, we will usually walk in our safe neighborhood most mornings, and (weather permitting) evenings.

For your precious pets' comfort, feel free to bring blankets, beds, food, and favorite toys, although we have plenty of each to share. Sunny-Girl, our shy and gentle cross-Siamese kitty, enjoys lounging in her kitty condo and watching the canine antics. She prefers doggies that do not lunge at her.

We welcome interviews and look forward to meeting you and your small pets. Feel free to make a a Meet and Greet appointment to visit us and we can check each other out – no obligation. If we all feel comfortable, we can arrange a reservation to care for your pup and will provide a loving and fun-filled (or laid-back, depending on personality) vacation in our home.

Read our reviews and get the very best care, as well as excellent pet insurance, which is included at no extra cost. In fact, DogVacay is wonderful, and there are no hidden costs whatsoever.

WE HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON!

Beverly R, the host, is very lovely. Her two pets are warm and friendly as well. Thank you for such a nice weekend.
Beverly was wonderful with my two Pomeranians. She has such a kind and caring demeanor, I felt confident they would be in good hands. She even called to let me know how they were doing so I would not worry. I definitely recommend Beverly and will use her again.

My girls loved nanny Beverly!!! It's a very comfortable feeling knowing they are with someone who cares for them as we would and not stuck in a cage for the weekend. Thank you and we will be back for another visit soon.
Bev always does such a great job with Bella! I really appreciate her!
There is not a high enough "star" to rate Beverly. This woman is amazing. I love her, my dog scout loves her. The care given my little dog is so wonderful. My dog is like my child and I would never hesitate to leave her with Beverly for short periods or long periods. My dog knows her spotless home and starts running around as soon as we hit the door. Never a kennel again when we have Beverly to rely on.

Dante had an awesome time @ Beverly's! She was great to send pics during his stay & keep us up to date with his activities and well being. He is looking forward to his next visit!
Beverly did a wonderful job with Bella! The morning I was to take her over there, I had to take Bella to the vet for a spider bite. BEVERLY did a great job taking care of her even though the vet put a cone on her to prevent her from licking the spider bite and Beverly had to apply medicine to it. She did not mind the extra effort at all. We are so thankful Bella was in such good hands, while we were out of town. And Christmas can be a really hard time to find pet care. Thank you for taking such good care of Bella!!!

Upon our initial meet and greet with Beverly, I knew we had finally found the ‘one’! I had begun a search several months well in advance of my trip to find someone that my four legged pup (Gladamere) would feel loved and safe with – while I was out-of-state for a conference. I have never been a true dog person until him, and from some higher power blessing, he and I are bonded at the soul. Therefore I felt I was looking for someone to entrust the care of my child. I particularly liked the fact that Beverly is a small dog nanny and felt this was strong asset as my pup is frightened of larger dogs. Also Beverly lives in a very safe neighborhood that has some fabulous areas to walk and exercise the pups. From 1500 + miles away, Beverly seemingly knew when I was thinking of my boy and when to send a text update. I never felt out of touch or anxious in regards to his stay. One the pictures she sent was him comfortably lying on her pillow on her side of the bed – ready for bedtime – and not really looking like he wanted to move. ;-). At that point, I definitely knew that he felt loved & secure at her home with Charley, Stanley and Sunny Girl. Beverly is a person with a strong moral fiber, integrity and trust. I am so thankful for the service that enabled me to find her. As we all know sometimes it can be a rare occurrence to meet someone with those values. It was very comforting to know I was leaving him in her care. All this to say, just after one stay – Gladamere and I consider her part of our extended family and he will definitely be staying with her again!

Also I still plan on Glad spending future visits with you, Charley, Stanley and Sunny girl!

Thanks again and we both wish you & the Gang a fabulous Holiday Season!

This is the second time we have used Beverly. She is great with our dog. She was actually full and still worked a place to fit him in so our trip would go on without a hitch.
#PAWSOME!!!! Perfectly describes our Lily's nanny, Ms. Beverly. She gives the utmost care, attention, devotion and (dare I say) love to our fur baby. Her, ever devoted companions, Charley and Stanley are so very considerate and willing to share their home, yard and mom. It's no wonder she's such a great pet nanny, she loves and respects them, treats them as precious souls that we can learn from as well as vice versa. We really can't recommend her enough (okay kinda worried that if we keep singing her praises, we won't be able to get a much coveted reservation). If you want to leave your pbaby and truly not worry about his/her safety, love that they will be spoiled with lots of love and attention then Ms. Beverly is the pet nanny for you.

Beverly was truly a blessing! Max and Molly had a wonderful time. She took the dogs on walks and made sure they had adequate playtime. She also sent photos to keep us updated. Exceeded our expectations!!
Beverly is the best! This is the second time our girls have gone to stay with her and when we come to pick them up, they are having such a good time they don't want to go home! She goes out of her way to make sure your pets are comfortable and happy. One of mydogs is afraid of thunderstorms, and when it rained, Beverly put her dogs and my dogs in the bed with her until the storms subsided. That makes me feel great! I don't ever worry about them when they are with Beverly. I know my girls can't want for another "dog vacay" to visit with Stanley and Charley!

Beverly was great with Chelsea.
Beverly is great! She loves the dogs and they love her. She's very flexible and I love that she only takes 2 dogs at a time, makes my 2 feel very comfortable there. We have used her twice now and will continue to use her going forward!
Carlos had a great time again! Thank you for accommodating us last minute and for taking great care of our doggie. See you next time!
Thanks to dogvacay for establishing such a wonderful idea for dogparents to be able to leave our dogs with someone who can give them 24 hour attention in a loving home. My dogs had another wonderful stay with NannyBev, Charlie and Stanely. Over the weekend, Beverly kept me informed with pictures of how they were spending their time. It puts my mind at ease to know Jasmine and Winston are getting her love and attention while away from home. When I arrive to take them home, they are glad to see me but don't really seem ready to leave. I will be making reservations with Beverly for future dovacays.

Jasmine and Winston seemed to enjoy their dogvacay with NannyBev, Charley and Stanley. Winston seemed to put on that puppy charm and had no problem winning them over. I am sure Jasmine kept close watch over her little brother.
Since they are both still puppies, I worried about them being away from mom and dad and keeping up with routines. Beverly sent me several messages and pictures to ease my mind and keep me aware. They will be taking another dogvacay with Nanny Beverly soon.

Oh my GOODNESS.... There just aren't enough words in the English language to describe how precious Nanny Beverly is. She had such a gentle spirit that draws your baby into her circle of peace, not to mention, yourself. This was my first Dog Vacay experience, I was a bit uneasy leaving my Lily with a virtual stranger. But within mere minutes, she had Lily at ease and comfortable. Which had us following her lead. Beverly was great at sending texts, pics and updates. This woman is a blessing to our babies. I absolutely plan on Lily staying with her in the future... As a side note, Lily was so happy to see us when we picked her up but she missed Beverly almost as soon as we were driving away, she really pouted on our trip back to Texas. Thank you Beverly, you are amazing.

Beverly was a perfect sitter. She was very patient with Nugget whenever he isn't used to be around other dogs. Beverly treated him well and took really good care of him. She sends pictures and keeps me updated on his situation. Thank you so much for everything Beverly!

Our little shadow stayed with Beverly overnight and she was wonderful. We received updates on how he was doing. He is blind and afraid to move around and she took excellent care of him. When he is away from home he stress out but he was not stressed after he came home. We will definitely be using her again. Her little dog Charlie watched over shadow to make sure he was ok.

Beverly is fantastic. She was attentive to our dog's every need. She even sent us pictures so we could see how he was doing. Her house is neat and clean, and the backyard area is safe and peaceful. We highly recommend Small Dog Nanny if you are in need of a professional and kind sitter for your dog.

If I could give Beverly ten stars I would! She is absolutely the best. We have been looking for someone great to watch our two girls, and I was so fortunate to find her. She is fantastic. Our girls had a great time. I thought they would be jumping all over us when we got back, but the truth is Beverly took such good care of them they were ready to stay with her!! They missed us some I am sure, but they were only wagging their tails when we came to get them, not going crazy. That made me feel so good! There was a bad thunderstorm when we were gone, and Beverly took my dog that gets upset in thunderstorms and put her in bed with her! Beverly really takes the time to learn about your pets and treats them great. I am booking her now for later, because if word gets out, it will be hard to get a spot with her! Definitely the best person for caring for your pet if you have to leave them! Thank you, Beverly!!

Beverly communicated so frequently with us, we were never worried. Our doggie came home very happy and well taken care of. Carlos got so much love and attention! Thanks Beverly!
She made sure to communicate with me and the dogs were well cared for.
Beverly is an excellent doggie vacay host and will certainly use her services again in the future.
My spoiled Yorkie had a splendid stay! I will definitely be using Ms. Beverly's services again.
This was my second time boarding my dogs with Beverly and I am at ease while I am away. My dogs are very well cared for.
This was the first time I used DogVacay and cannot stop raving about it to my friends. I was able to do a meet and greet prior with my host Beverly and felt so reassured that I was making a good choice to leave my babies with her. She was so easy to communicate with with and very experienced with dogs. She kept me updated with texts and pictures of my babies. I will definitely use her again in the near future.

Beverly was great!! She was very attentive to my two babies and sent pics throughout their stay. Would highly recommend her!
Beverly is awesome! I highly recommend her! My dogs love spending time over there :)
Beverly was very attentive to our dog Lucy. Lucy was a little overwhelming , (because of her size) but Beverly did everything possible to make her fit in. Beverly is very passionate about what she does, and very honest and upfront about everything that goes on during your stay. I would highly recommend Beverly for small dogs.

I believe Beverly took care of Max and Abby like they were her own. I will be using Beverly in the future for any vacation/out of town needs I may have. Thanks so much!!
Beverly was a delight! She was easy to work with a very responsive. Our dogs have never stayed with anyone outside of the family before this trip. Beverly sent pictures and updates on the pups which helped me know they were having a good time and being cared for. I have already recommended dog vacay to a few people who don't like to board their dogs!

Love her!!!!
Beverly is Awesome and my dog loved her!!!! I will be using her again!
Beverly is a sweet nanny and has a very nice home where my little Jax was safe and happy. She sent me so many great texts with pictures to keep me undated on his stay. We will definitely be calling Beverly again.
Beverly R. provided the best care possible, my family and I could ever imagine. Since our dog is an 'only child', we requested a pre-visit to ensure that our dog got along with her family of pets, and Beverly quickly accommodated her schedule. Once confirmed that the dogs were amendable, we confirmed our vacation.

While on vacation, Beverly sent photos and updates everyday. She has a cat that was being slightly tormented by a couple of guest dogs (including mine). As a resolution, she purchased a cat 'condo' which the cat promptly took to for protection. Beverly went out of her way (and out of her pocket book) to ensure all of the pets were happy together.

Following this depth of care, Beverly only serves bottled water to her pets and guests. My family and I would not be comfortable leaving town without the services and attention to care that Beverly provides to small pets. Please call Beverly with all of your small dog needs. She is amazing!

What a great host! Cutie was well cared for. It is quite obvious that Beverly loves animals and was very attentive to my elderly dogs needs. She even texted pictures of my dog to me while I was away :) I highly recommend this lovely host, Beverly.
Words cannot express the experience we had with Beverly! We have 3 doggies, ranging from 6 months to 12 years old, and it was like sending them to stay with a long lost friend. The care she gives is over the top! We went on our honey/familymoon for 2 weeks, and everyday that we were gone we received text messages with pictures giving us updates on our girls. I cannot express enough the love that we have for Bev, she is like family to us. If you want the best care for your pups then this is who you want. Beverly we love you and cant thank you enough! Cant wait to get all the pups together again for a visit!

Many Blessings,
The Parkers

My dogs Buster and Ellie were in much better shape than I was upon my return from Utah. They were happy to come home and slept well back in my kitchen. Beverly has 2 dogs of her own and my dogs were not happy to be left in the kitchen so they slept in Beverly's bedroom in their beds where they felt comfortable. Ellie has epilepsy and needs to be medicated twice a day at 12 hour intervals. I trusted Beverly to do this and did not worry at all. Both dogs were in good shape and Ellie had no seizures. I would not hesitate to leave them with her again and highly recommend her as a DogVacay host.

Our experience with Beverly was wonderful! We have a puppy who is very tiny and had never stayed with anyone else before. She was really good with him, and her pets- two small dogs and a cat- took well to him being in their home. It was great for Cooper to make friends! We will be having doggy play dates at the dog park soon, and highly recommend this pet sitter! Beverly has a natural gift for taking care of dogs, I can tell she really loves them. She has had a long history of volunteering with animals and is very knowledgeable of how to work with a pet's individualities. You will have a good experience using her as your pet sitter, too!
