About Emily

I grew up with dogs and have been a dog owner for 14 years. My kids (ages 11, 13 and 14) and I love caring for our French bulldog, Finn. Finn is friendly to all kinds of dogs, and he enjoys playing and sleeping equally. I have a large grassy yard and a peaceful and comfortable home where all kinds of dogs are welcome. My dog, my kids and I are home most of the time, so your dog would have a lot of companionship. I take Finn for walks everyday, usually on a path where he can run, and I would be happy to bring a buddy. I don't just want to be a dog watcher for you while you are away -- I'd like to make your pup feel comfortable, happy and safe.

Our little dog Clara is very nervous and never did well when we had to leave her at a kennel or other facility when we were on vacation. She seemed right at home at Emily's house. We felt very comfortable and Clara seemed to settle in nicely. Will definitely be contacting Emily again. Great experience.
We highly recommend Emily. She recently took care of our dog Teddy. He came home happy and tired. I could tell she/family really cared about him! I got many cute pictures of Teddy as well. Emily has the perfect house to take care of your dog! We will definitely be back!!
Kona had an awesome time with Emily and her family. She was totally exhausted and happy when she came home! Emily's family is very athletic and active, and the dogs they watch become part of their busy routines, including outdoor playtime, walks, and snuggles!

Our dog can be a handful because she's so food motivated, but Emily and the kids kept a good eye on her. We will be leaving Kona for two weeks during the holidays, and we feel great about the care she'll receive!
Savannah's trip to Emily's was fantastic. We scheduled a playdate visit just prior to being out of the country for 2 weeks. I was concerned about leaving a young pup for so long, but Emily made both Savannah and I comfortable from the start. She sent detailed notes and photos during our absence so that I could see how much Savannah was enjoying herself. She enjoyed lots of brisk Fall walks (including Halloween costumed trick-or-treating) and playtime with the family's sweet French Bulldog, Finn. Emily's children pitched right in and made Savannah feel like a member of the family. I know Savannah can't wait to go back! We've already scheduled another sleep-over! :)
Emily & her family did a terrific job boarding our dog for 3 nights. I felt comfortable leaving my dog with a warm loving family. My dog had a great time and I wasn't sure he would want to come back home to me! ;) I was updated on a regular basis with pictures. My dog got regular exercise and felt like he was at home. I would highly recommend Emily for any doggy care.
Emily did a great job. Brady loved his stay and she was great at keeping him excercised, and gave him his meds consistently and sent me photos the whole time. We'll definitely be back!
We left our precious Minnie for the very first time with someone other than family, I was extremely nervous and didn't know what to expect, Emily took all those fears away, her and her family treated our dog like their own, she responded to my messages almost immediately and sent me photos! I can't thank Emily enough and will not hesitate ever leaving Minnie with her! You are wonderful and I am glad I found you!
Emily is a caring, loving pet sitter...making our dog's stay with her worry-free for us. I would definitely recommend her home as a happy / safe environment when you can't take your pet with you.
A dog loving household. Couldn't be happier and have recommended Emily to friends, the highest compliment of all!
After moving from California where our dogs went to my husband's parents' home when we traveled, I have been hesitant to leave them with anyone. Fortunately, we found Emily through Dog Vacay. From the moment she opened the door, I knew my dogs would be cared for by a kind and attentive family. She is warm and friendly. You can tell she loves animals. Emily sent us adorable pictures and kept us updated during Beckham and Gracie's stay. We will definitely use her again!
Emily took great care of Cooper when we were away. He got long walks and plenty of playtime!
Emily and her family took great care of my senior Jack Russell terrier. He had lots of walks, rides in the car and baths! Emily sent regular updates by text which reassured me that my beloved Harry was safe and happy. Thank you Emily!
Loving, very in touch with our dog, very cary. Responded quickly to all questions. Lovely dog friendly setting. Have already made a second reservation
Emily is wonderful! We left our miniature schnauzer puppy with her for a week while we went away for spring vacation. This was Charlie's first time being away from us and we, naturally, were very nervous. Well, Everything went very well. Emily provided an excellent service and took great care to our baby. The whole time we were away, we were receiving updates and pictures about Charlie and his "adventures". There were puppy playdates, hikes and strolls in the nature :) We knew Charlie was well taken care off. I wholeheartedly recommend Emily and know that any time we need to leave our puppy home to travel, we have a wonderful place to leave hem.
First time boarding my pup and could not be happier with how everything went! Emily and her kids were wonderful. Came home to a very happy puppy :) p
Emily and her kids are great. This was Quincy's second time staying with them and he has so much fun playing with the kids and Finn, going to the park, and cuddling. He's gets lots of attention and I enjoy all the pictures. Will defiantly use Emily again when I go away.
Thank you for your flexibility with Luna on Tuesday.
Emily and her kids have taken great care of our dog! They are true dog lovers and take her on long walks and spend lots of time with her at home. We are very happy!
Gracie has stayed with Emily and her kids a few times now and they're wonderful! Gracie gets plenty of exercise while there, and is always very excited when we show up at the house. She will be staying with Emily for a week and a half next month- I'm so happy we found her!
Emily was great - I left for vacation knowing that my buddy was in great hands!
Emily and her three teenage kids provided our large lab very caring, exercised and happy stay for the month we were away. They sent pictures regularly and were a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend to anyone needing a short or longer dog vacay!
