About Emily

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My family absolutely adores dogs of all shapes and sizes! We have one dog of our own, named Kimber. She loves to play and has lots of energy, therefore we spend a lot of our afternoons at the dog park and/or on adventure walks. (If you dog is older and prefers to lounge, we can do that as well! ;) ) We live in a large apartment with a private yard. The yard is fenced with no gate, even though the fence is secure, your furbabies will not be left outside unattended.
My family is excited to open our home up to your furbaby and spoil them while you are away! We are very sensitive to your furbaby's normal routine and would like to stick to that as much as possible. Please let us know of likes, dislikes, eating habits, etc. I will be happy to answer any questions, just send me a message! I look forward to spoiling your doggie!!! I also work
From home!

Emily was bery flexiable and helpful. Our dog was happy and well cared for. I will use her services again.
Emily & Chad were easy to get a hold of, accepted a last minute reservation for us, and sent us photos and updates. Our senior dog did great with them!
I would give Emily and her family 10 stars if I could :). Being a first time DogVacay user, I was very nervous to leave our recently rescued Pittie while we went on vacation. She made me feel as ease as soon as I met her and throughout Phoebe's stay, she kept me updated with photos and pictures and I could see just how happy my girl was on her vacation away from home. I will definitely use Emily's service again!!

Emily and her family did a wonderful job with Boomer! He had a great time and she took good care of him while we were away. Thanks for hosting him at your home.
Emily was great with communication & letting me know my dogs were doing well while I was away. She was gracious to allow me to drop my pups off at 7am, before my flight! I much preferred this over my dogs being in a kennel all weekend.
Emily was great. She was flexible with the schedule even though it was around the holiday season. She periodically sent me texts with photos of my dog which was much appreciated.
Emily was the perfect DogVacay host for our Boston Terrier, Stella. She provided constant updates and allowed our dog to stay an extra night when our travel plans changed. We highly recommend Emily and can't thank her enough for taking such good care of our pup.

Emily and her family did an amazing job! Very prompt about answering my texts and messages and I loved getting the photo updates throughout their stay :) Dogs were very well cared for and treated them like their own. My husband said their house was very clean and tidy. Would highly recommend!

My dog had a great time staying with Emily and her husband. When I picked him up, he was behaving as he normally would, not really phased by my presence, which tells me he was very comfortable and not stressed. Emily keeps the routine for your dog the same.

Good experience with this host.
I had a wonderful experience! Emily responded on very short notice with acceptance. She asks the right questions and gives the right information so that i didn't have any hold backs a to whether i should leave my pet. Although living in an apartment Emily provides everything a pet could want from a relaxed and loving environment inside to outside time along with treats. It's evident that her goal is making your pet happy and feel at home. Taking time to text message and send pics was over the top! I will use her again!

Emily was wonderful, she sent me pictures of my dog very often. My little dog did have a good time. She seemed quite happy when I picked her up . I will definitely use her again in the future. Thanks, Kay
This was the first time we used the service and couldn't be happier with how easy it was. Glad I was able to leave my dog with another family who would look after her as if she was their own. This will be the first of many times to use this service!
We needed a place for our lab to stay on short notice over the labor day weekend. Saw Emily's info on the website and signed up. We were running a bit late getting out of town and Emily adjusted her schedule to make sure we made the dog handoff. She sent pictures and texts over the weekend, and even washed the dog bed before we picked up our dog because other dog guests had been on it! We would highly recommend Emily! Great experience.

What a great experience! Emily and Chad were wonderful with our dogs. We were moving to aread and needed to board our 2 dogs. Traditional boarding was an option, but very expensive. I found dogvacay online. I contacted Emily. She responded quickly and accepted our request. She sent pictures and videos of our dogs playing. She sent text as well. My dogs were happy and safe. We were very happy. I will use Emily and Chad again.....for sure! I have already request Emily while we vacation later in the year.

Emily was a great sitter. Eva had a fun time with her family for 4days. She sent pics and video. I will definitely find her again when I need a reliable dog sitter!
It was really hard to leave my fur-baby. Emily updated me frequently to show how Beaux was adjusting. I could tell by the pictures that he had adjusted quickly and was a happy pup. Emily accommodated all of beaux's routines which was very nice to see. I've already booked again for our next trip!!! Thank you!!!!!

Emily did great with my Sadie. Sadie stayed 5 days. Normally, whenever she is away that long, she gets homesick to the point where she won't eat that much and looks really lethargic when I pick her up.
But Sadie looked great when I picked her up from Emily. For just a little extra, Sadie got shed, bathed and nails clipped.
Emily was really flexible with drop off and pick up times. My pickup time changed several times on the day of picking her up, but Emily was very accommodating.
I will use Emily every time going forward.

Great stay! Both dogs had fun and were well taken care of. We appreciated the pics of the pups and would use again.
Excellent as always. Thanks again Emily!
Emily and her husband Chad were a pleasure to work with. They were very flexible on my drop off and pick up times, and send me pictures of my dog while he was away. Communication was always very prompt and very polite. My dog was very happy when he got back and I'm sure he had a great stay. I will definitely be using Emily again in the future.

Emily and her family were great with our dogs, we will definitely use them again next time!!
Emily and Chad took such great care of our mini doxie Kinsler while we were away! He was SO loved on and genuinely cared for! He came home so happy! I didn't worry about him one bit with the picture updates! We will definitely be using them again!
Emily and family took great care of our beloved fourteen year old Lab mix! We highly recommend her services and will definitely be back. Thanks!
Emily and her family are amazing! They treated our Dallas as one of their family and he LOVED spending time with them!
Emily and Her husband were very accommodating and great to work with. My puppy had fun, I can tell by all the videos she sent me and I picked her up clean and smelling real good. I will definitely use their services again! I enjoy it! Great service without breaking the bank! Better than those pet hotels!

Emily was so helpful and kind.
She sent me pics everyday and was so caring to all of the dogs. No doubt that their home is full of love and they truly care and love the dogs. You will be very happy with her! We will defiantly use her again.

Ranger had a GREAT time with Emily! So much fun, he didn't want to come home with me when we got back. Emily and her family were fantastic dog sitters! Ranger will definitely vacation with her again!
Emily and her family are unbelievably amazing with my Chow Chow Puppy Prince. He was so happy and he bonded with them immediately. Prince fell in love with their young child. She cuddled Prince, and he was so comfortable with her. Emily's husband Chad also spent time with Prince, and Emily says that he and Prince got along very well. Prince fits with them perfectly, He will definitely stay with them often! Emily is very sweet, and made me feel secure. I am batting a thousand with DogVacay. I love this service! The entire family adores my puppy, and he adores them. He was bathed & clean and happy as ever when I came to pick him up! I highly recommend Sparkman's Pet Service.:-)

Emily was amazing and Cody will definitely want to stay with her again! She is very sweet, caring, professional, and made us feel more than secure with Cody's care. She even kissed him on his little head when dropping him off. A huge thank you !!

Emily and Chad are fantastic! They have a very nice and clean home, and my dog was happy as ever when I came to pick him up! If I didn't walk him out I'm sure he would have happily stayed a few more days! I would highly recommend them.
First time using this service and was a bit nervous to be candid, but this was a WONDERFUL experience for us and our dog, Sadie. We got daily updates, pictures and even a video showing just how much fun Sadie was having. Our dog came home very happy and we will be using this family EVERY time in the future if they are available. Thank you!!

I can not say enough good things about Cash's stay with Emily! She and her family treated him like he was theirs and they sent us videos and pictures of Cash playing which made it easier for my kids to be away from him. Emily's dog Kimber was super sweet and Cash loved playing with her. I will always check with Emily for her availability before traveling in the future!!
