About Pauline

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a pet lover and retired professional and would like to sit with your pet in your home while you are away. I no longer am able to board your pet because of my new residence. I did own a German Shepherd in the past and over the years I have cared for several friends' pets. I believe that pets contribute a very rewarding and positive experience in our life.

If I do not know your dog from the past, during our meet and greet we will discuss your pet's needs, including medications, what time your pet eats, how much, and when snacks are appropriate, as well as other needs to make your dog's experience a pleasant one.

It always helps to enjoy our time away, knowing our dogs are well cared for!
We're very fortunate to have found Pauline to care for our dogs!
It's so great knowing our dogs are so comfortable staying with Pauline!
Knowing our dogs are so well cared for, helps to make for a relaxing vacation!
We're very fortunate to get to travel, knowing our dogs are in good hands with Pauline!
My dogs love staying with Pauline!
Pauline was so organized and attentive it really made us feel like we could enjoy our travels without constantly thinking if our little bud was holding up ok. Our dog was happy and healthy when I picked him up. We already have another stay scheduled with her!
Pauline is wonderful. She has taken care of our Westies a couple of times and they love her. She gives us daily updates and sends us pictures so we know what's going on with our pups. I wholeheartedly recommend her services!
Trustworthy patient and very loving towards all dogs knows them well and gives them lots of attention and exercise . Pauline is great with lucky thank u
Very accommodating with my schedule as it can vary with my work . Has fun with the other dogs and Pauline knows each dog so well .
Had a blast with Pauline !!!
I can't thank Pauline enough for caring for my dogs during a time I had to be by my family's side. Not having to worry about my dogs, truly helped so much!
Pauline was able to work around her own schedule to accommodate our dogs for a few days. The dogs are very comfortable staying with Pauline and enjoy her fenced in back yard!
Pauline is always so flexible with arrival and departure times for my dogs. I appreciate that and also the fantastic care they receive while with her.
It's always so comfortable taking a vacation, knowing our dogs are so well cared for!
We left our dog "Moose" with Pauline for two overnights and two full days. Moose is a 13 month old Golden Retriever that was born with hip dysplasia and is currently in the 9th week of his hip replacement recovery. We expressed to Pauline that he needed to be careful when playing with other dogs as well as when going up and down stairs. Moose being 90 pounds makes it a little more difficult to ensure his safety! Pauline was extremely caring and accommodating, expressing ways in which she would make sure Moose was careful and safe throughout his stay. Pauline has a lovely home in a beautiful area with a fenced in yard that the dogs can play in. She sent us photos during the day, relieving any anxiety we may have been feeling being away from him! Pauline took great care of Moose while we were away and we are extremely grateful!
It was so great to be able to attend a family event, knowing we didn't have to rush home to care for our dogs. They were well cared for, as always, with Pauline!!
Pauline went above and beyond to make Sushi feel comfortable in a new environment and with the other dogs.
Pauline took great care of our 5-month old Sunnie. It was a last minute booking (and our first time!) but Pauline was very flexible to meet with us the same night. She sent pictures regularly and called me when puppy was picked up by my friend.

We are very happy with our first DogVacay experience ad will definitely have Pauline watch Sunnie again.
This is the third time my 2 golden retrievers have stayed with Pauline and it really has become their home away from home. My girls love it there and we couldn't be happier with the care they receive. Pauline is very responsive to requests and she sends frequent updates and photos.
Another fun day for lucky enjoyed her friends that were there with her and played she was exhausted when I got her home
Lucky loves going to Pauline's for daycare , comes home tired. She doesn't want to leave when I pick her up . Very reliable honest and accommodating I can tell she's always taken care of when she's there . Feel better knowing she's not home alone all day thank u for taking good care of lucky
I always feel so comfortable leaving my dogs with Pauline. They get so much love and attention.
Pauline always does a good job.
This time Maebelle stayed with Pauline for over a week and it was a great relief not to worry about her. Pauline gave me daily updates with pictures and we couldn't be happier. We already booked her for an event months away as this is really the best place for our spoiled pup.
Our pup is sweet but needs to be the only dog and Pauline is a godsend! She was very attentive to Maebelle's needs and cues and I felt so much better knowing she was being treated like the spoiled mutt she is. We already have her booked for our next vacation and I highly recommend her to take care of your pup.
I want to give a huge thumbs up to Pauline her and Sadie seemed to get a long wonderfully. I was very impressed with the updates each night on how she Sadie was doing and the fact that this was her first time with Pauline, She did not seemed stressed out at all. I would recommend Pauline to anyone who needs a dedicated dog sitter. A huge thumbs up and Sadie will definately be going back to see her new friend in the future. I would rate her a 5 star bow wow hotel.
I'm so comfortable leaving my dogs with Pauline and she shows them so much love, affection and lots of attention. It makes leaving them so much easier!
Lulu had a fabulous time with Pauline, she loves to see her and play with the other dogs. Pauline worked with my schedule and was very flexible. Lulu cannot wait to go back and see Pauline again. Thanks Pauline !!
Once again Pauline was fantastic! Tater had a great time and she sent us daily photos of him playing and having fun with other dogs. She was very caring and let us know how he was doing daily. She took him for lovely walks each day as well. We highly recommend her for watching your pet and will use her again when we go on vacation.
Thanks Pauline!
Pauline is such a reliable sitter for our dogs and we never have to worry about them when we're away.
Always knowing my dogs are well cared for while we're away, makes for a much more relaxing vacation.
I love being able to go away knowing my dogs are so well cared for.
Pauline took such wonderful care of our elderly English Setter, Kezar! She makes him feel special, and respects his space. He has a hard time climbing stairs, and she put a special rug down on the stairs just for him so he could get some traction. She is so accommodating, and Kezar loves going to her house. He has been there 3 times, including 12 days this last visit. And the photos and daily updates are so helpful to us. Pauline, you are the best.
Pauline is very accommodating, works around u and you're pets needs with ease. Very trustworthy reliable and truly loves each dog she cares for . I love sending lucky there while I'm at work if I had tons money I'd send her every day . Thanks
Every night we had photos and updates. She has our trust and future vacations!
Our dogs always have a great time! We trust Pauline and look forward to their next visit with her!
Lucky had another fun day for daycare with Pauline went very happy and when I picked her up she didn't want to come home. I can tell she really likes Pauline lays on her foot when she is telling me about their day . Also sends me an update during the day . She even has friends there at times and knows if they r the right match and will all get along . She really knows each dog and their personality very well . Thank u
Pauline is always so trustworthy and accommodating!!!
Pauline sent frequent photos and updates on our dog's days. She is wonderful to him and he certainly likes the attention he gets from her.
We are thrilled we have found Pauline to watch and care for our Kezar while we go away. This was his second stay with her and we will use her services in the future.
Knowing our dogs are so well cared for, makes for a much more enjoyable trip. I appreciate all the love and attention that Pauline shows our dogs!
Another 2 days of fun for lucky , came home tired and goes to c her so happy. Lucky loves Pauline , she was very accommodating with drop off and pick up times also , very understanding when things arise and run a bit late picking her up , thank u Pauline for taking such good care of lucky these past months while I'm so busy working it's great to not have to leave her home all the time .
Pauline is always so accommodating with drop off/pick up times. I truly appreciate that. It's also always nice to get away with never having to worry about the dogs! Adds to a great trip!
Another 2 fun days at daycare for lucky with sum friends for her to hang out with she comes home tired and happy Pauline continues to send pics everyday and let's me know how she's doing during her daycare . She even took her a second time for me on short notice , she seemed to have had so much fun once during the week I had to send her again . Thanks to Pauline she's not stuck in house all day while I'm at work , gets plenty of attention and exercise , thanks Pauline
Kept me posted on a regular basis as to my dogs stay.
another fun day with Pauline and she had some friends with her today went great thank you
Left lucky for 11 nights with Pauline. Was not worried at all. She already goes mostly every week for daycare. I knew she would b taken care of. Received a report daily with photos. Ran late with my flight and she was very accommodating . I feel I can really trust Pauline to take care of lucky like she was her own I don't know what I would do without her . Thank u so much
Pauline watched our 70-pound pit/hound mix for a week while we were in Florida. In the past, we had tried several different kennels and I always felt that our dog was very over stimulated and stressed when we got back. Having the dog stay with Pauline was a completely different experience. She did an awesome job. She sent several pictures each day. Seeing how well he was doing made our vacation a lot better, because I didn't have to worry. Pauline was very conscientious, and I think our dog got even more personal attention than he does at home.
Lucky had another fun filled day at Pauline's she is passed out asleep now snoring ! Lucky loves going even hesitates to come home now it's her home away from home . She is looking forward to her vacation soon and continues to go for the day when she's available . Thank you very much if you're on here looking for a place for your pet please stop this one is it highly recommended !
We were in a bind to find someone to take Shelby our smooth Collie for the weekend. Pauline got back to us as soon as she found out about our predicament and agreed to take Shelby the following day. Pauline kept us informed about how Shelby was doing with emails and pictures while we were away which was a great comfort to my wife and me. The day we picked Shelby up it was obvious she was relaxed and very at home in Pauline's house. She even fell asleep on the kitchen floor as we were talking.

We won't hesitate to contact Pauline again the next time we need someone to take care of Shelby.
Another great time had by lucky at Pauline's today for daycare she loves going and is tired when she gets home
Pauline did a wonderful job caring for my Pomeranian. She's very good with making sure your dig is happy and comfortable and my dog took to her immediately. She sent many pictures that make you comfortable that your pet is happy. I look forward to booking with Pauline again soon.
Lucky had another great day , this time she didn't want to come home right away she layed down on floor like she wanted to stay when I was ready to go warming up to Pauline she is great even asked if it was ok to run an errand and really worked with me when we were having technical trouble with the app
Pauline was fantastic as usual lucky loves going for the day as soon as I get on her street she's all excited still doesn't like when I leave right away but I know she's fine later . Seems very happy when we get there can always tell Pauline cares about lucky
Pauline deeply cares about you're pet. Meet and greet went great. Introduced my golden to neighbors dog and they got along and even played . Booked her for daycare and when we returned she jumped right out car so happy to b back if she doesn't want to go somewhere she won't get out of the car , she took her for long walks played and explored updated me often how she was and sent pictures will definitely send my golden back for daycare Pauline is fantastic .
Outstanding, We were gone for 3 days and did not have that guilt pressure hanging over us. We were confident that our dog was in good hands and he was. Just ask him. We will be back again and again. Thanks Pauline
Thank you Pauline for caring for Rainey and Scout last week. I felt very comfortable leaving them with you. I love the concept of Dog Vacay and hopefully you'll have availability on our next vacation.
Pauline took wonderful care of my 3 very high maintenance Italian greyhounds. She treated them like her own. They were not stressed out as they have been in the past when they were kept at kennels. I would definitely recommend Pauline to anyone who was looking for a top notch dog care experience. Thank you Pauline, it's so nice to not worry about your pets when away on vacation.
Once again, another worry free trip away from the dogs, knowing they were perfectly cared for!
I love Pauline's warm and steady style and demeanor, it's just like what my pet has at my home, which is what we all want, right? Every pet provider is not created equal. Pauline is a total 100 on a 100 point scale. Can you clone yourself Pauline?
Frankie just spent 10 days with Pauline (his first visit) and had a great experience. Pauline emailed us pictures of him on a daily basis. Because Pauline only cares for one dog at a time, he got lots of attention (which he absolutely loves).
This was my first Dog Vacay experience and it was great! Pauline took great care of my 3 Italian Greyhounds. They can be quite the handfull and she took wonderful care of them! She even took some pictures of them and emailed me updates to keep me posted on how they were doing. I am very happy to leave my 3 pups with her in the future, as we have a trip planned in the fall!
Once again, leaving my dogs with Pauline, allowed me to enjoy my time away without having to worry about the dogs! I know they're in such great hands. Pauline is such a fantastic caregiver!
Pauline was wonderful, it's a great feeling to know that your leaving your little four legged friend in loving and capable hands. She sent us pictures of Rocko during his stay and could call her anytime to see how he was. The yard is fenced in so that there is no chance of escape or vice a versa. I would highly recommend Pauline to care for your pet!
Pauline was wonderful! She sent us updates on how he was doing and even photos. I felt very comfortable leaving our dog with her knowing he was in good hands. I know the first day he was a little nervous, but then he settled right in. She took him for long walks and he played a lot outdoors. We would use her again and recommend her to other dog owners!
Pauline is a loving, conscientious pet sitter. We are extremely pleased!
It's always such a pleasure to leave our dogs with Pauline! It's so nice to know that we can leave our dogs with someone so trustworthy, who will take such great care of them!
Pauline was wonderful. She sent me photos and a detailed message every day to let me know how my dog was doing. I can tell my dog enjoyed her 9 days with Pauline very much! I would definitely recommend her as a host!
As always, Pauline provides the best care for our two dogs. I can not thank her enough for her services or the peace of mind knowing my dogs are in a warm and loving environment while in her care. Thank you Pauline.
Pauline updated us, quite frequently, on how our dogs were doing. She makes it so easy for us to enjoy time away, without worrying about our dogs! So happy that we found a dog sitter that we can depend on!!
Sami had a GREAT stay with Pauline! We really appreciated how easy it was to work with Pauline. She is very professional and flexible and very much a dog lover! Sami was immediately comfortable in her new environment and showed no signs of stress when we dropped her off and when we picked her up. It was clear to us that Sami was well cared for and enjoyed her vacation too! We look forward to working with Pauline again real soon.
It is always an added bonus to taking a trip, knowing our dogs are well cared for. Pauline is such a great caregiver, my dogs love spending time with her!
We're so lucky to have found Pauline to care for our dogs! We never have to worry about the dogs when Pauline's caring for them! She shows them love and affection and they love her!
Pauline was very accommodating to our emergency drop off. We needed to travel 1 day early to beat the snow storm and make our cruise, Pauline was our savior and took Max early. She is very sweet and sincere. Max seemed very happy and relaxed when we picked him up. I would recommend her to everyone.
We highly recommend Pauline. She is a very caring person and we felt very comfortable leaving our Max ( big mommas boy) with her.
So flexible with any extra requests. Very understanding, helpful, and caring. Cammie looks forward to going back to Pauline's in the future!
Great experience! Loved the pictures and updates!
Pauline is an extremely caring and patient host, and we really appreciate the love she has shown to our dog.
Cammie had another great week! Pauline's flexibility makes our lives so much easier! Thank you!!
Once again Pauline gave our two dogs the best care. Thank you Pauline.
Pauline was a great host for our pup! Cammie was happy when we picked her up. She got exercise and love. Already booked her again!
Pauline is so great - we really feel that she cares for our dog as if he were her own and that she makes the environment inviting and comfortable.
Pauline always makes us feel so comfortable and secure of knowing that we left our dogs in good hands! She loves our dogs as if they were her own and they enjoy being with her. Couldn't ask for anything better than that!
Another extraordinary experience for my boys Taz and Scooter. It is so nice to go away and have the peace of mind that they are being well cared for in a warm and loving home. Thank you Pauline.
I can't say enough good things about Pauline! I couldn't be more comfortable leaving our 2 dogs with her! It's so obvious how much love and affection she has for our dogs. It's just so great to know you never have to worry about your dogs when they're with Pauline. They're getting the best possible care!
Due to a flight delay Pauline was able to accommodate our bundle of joy an extra night. She's a perfect host!
Bodie had a wonderful time with Pauline, and she was wonderful to work with from start to finish. She gave us regular updates and sent many pictures, and really made us feel like Bodie was in a loving home. We plan to have Bodie stay with Pauline in the future!
Had a great experience with Pauline watching our little active guy during our long vacation. She sent many photos throughout the week that helped relieve our nerves of being away from our pup. Though it seems our dog had no such nerves as he looked to be having a blast in the photos. She took him on long walks and was accommodating to all our requests.
We adopted Max 6 years ago, he is now 9.5 years old, a bit of a momma's boy and has never been boarded outside of family. We were concerned that Max would not do well in a kennel so when we found Pauline we were excited to give it a try. We were more than pleased with how well things went. Max had a great human companion, who took him for long walks, made him feel comfortable when he was anxious and also provided canine companions, which Max loves.

We are definitely going to have Max stay with Pauline again.
We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with Pauline. She provided our two small dogs, Taz and Scooter, with a loving and safe environment. Not only did she take them outside in her fenced in yard several times a day, she also took them on walks. When we picked the dogs up from her house today, they seemed like they belonged there...quite content. So much better for them to be in a loving quiet home as opposed to a cold, noisy kennel. Thank you Pauline.
Pauline is very good with my dog Honey and takes her for walks and allows her to play with the neighbors dog. She allows Honey to be with her as she is a fearful dog. I will use pauline in the future when I go away for 2 weeks next year. Dorothy
Once again, we were extremely satisfied with leaving our dogs with Pauline. They are so loved and well cared for while we're away!
We left our 2 puppies with Pauline for a week long vacation. Pauline sent us messages and pictures of the dogs, describing how well they were doing.
As much as we missed them, we never had to worry about them. They were well cared for while we were away.
Pauline took them on many walks and gave them plenty of play time.
I knew when she indicated that they cuddled up to her on the couch, that they felt very comfortable with her.
I have already booked Pauline for future trips!!
Paw tastic! Couldn't ask for any better. She took good care of my dog and cat.
Pauline was an excellent host taking care of my dog and cat for a few days. I was very nervous to leave my animals with anyone because Honey my dog is a fearful dog and I was worried about putting her in to a kennell. I found Pet Vacay and Pauline in Pelham responded to any of my emails asking how my pets were and gave them wonderful care.
I would highly recomend her and I will be boarding my animals with her again next year.
Pauline was wonderful and accommodating. she took great care of my 2 girls! She took them on walks and gave them lots of one on one attention! I will definitely bring them back again!
Pauline and Sally-Ann are abutting neighbors and neither could accommodate our long reservation alone because of other reservations so we booked them separately and they handled the transition mid-week for us. Very convenient. Pauline was very sweet and handled our Golden's puppy attitude with great care. She let him have the run of the house at night because he was just very unhappy sleeping in his crate and she slept on the sofa so he wasn't alone. You'd never in a million years get this level of care at a kennel. She went above and beyond. Thank you for taking great care of our big baby!
Pauline was very well organized and took care of our Katie. She had a great time over the 4th of July with Pauline. We would definitely use her again. Thanks again!
Pauline was gracious and kind. She cared very well for my shy little cocker. She has a great set up for dogs and I'd recommend her to you.
Thanks Pauline! Elsie had a great time!
Pauline was super! I think Star was actually sad to see me show up to pick her up. She was still having so much fun with her room mates. I'm not sure but I think Star is better behaved now than before I left.
I felt nothing but comfort and trust leaving our 2 dogs with Pauline. She gave our dogs so much love and attention and I'm happy to say I've already booked her for future vacations.
We could not have had a better experience with Pauline. She was very accommodating and took very good care of our dog, Roxy, during Roxy's 1 week stay with her. She emailed us during our trip as to how Roxy was doing, sent pictures, and made us feel at ease. Thanks Pauline! Roxy will be vacationing again with you soon!
