About Maureen

Spoiled puppies has moved to our forever home in Johnsburg. Our play area has increased to a large fenced in yard. Plus more space to roam and play in the house. My boy is free to roam the house. So the puppies would not be tied to a lead. Free to run. When the weather is nice I leave the back door open so they can come and go as they please. Crate available. My office is in my home. So it would be limited time left alone. My schedule is flexible so I can work around my puppy clients.

My boy is so spoiled that yes he is allowed on furniture and the bed. IE the name Spoiled Puppies.

Maureen was awesome with our 4 month old puppy! We were so leery about leaving her since she was so young, however, Maureen was exceptionally patient and understanding of a puppy's needs and kept us up to date all weekend long as to how she was doing. I highly recommend her and we will certainly be using her again in the future!
Duke loved his time at Maureen's. He hardly missed us and even got to sleep on her bed.
Maureen was great! Talon had a great time. Loved being outdoors. We will definitely be going back to Aunt Mo!
Maureen does a great job wirh dogs. She always greets us with a smile and blonde (never grey) hair. My dog loves to play with her dog(s) in the house and yard. She has flexible hours and makes pets very comfortable.
My dogs had a great time with Maureen. She was very professional and safety was very important. I will be using her again in the future.
I have reviewed the great experience my pup has experienced with Maureen before but she is absolutely worth another mention. Every time I use Maureen she is kind, flexible, and always takes great care of my Piper. Piper comes home happy and tired every single time. I would recommend Maureen to ANYONE who wants to feel safe and secure about their pet while they are away. She is the greatest! I will absolutely use her (and only her) in the future when we need a sitter. We love you Maureen!
This was our first stay at Maureen's house. Our golden retriever, Bucky, was so excited to arrive (he remembered his Meet and Greet). Maureen is so accommodating and is very knowledgeable about transitioning the new dogs into her home. Her yard is great for the dogs as well. Bucky had a great visit.

We were very pleased and have already booked another stay with her. We really appreciated receiving a picture and update as well.

Thank you Maureen!
She was great. Very helpful. Took wonderful care of our dog
Always a pleasure to leave Harlie with Auntie Mo. We know she enjoys being with other dogs at her house too.
Maureen watched and treated my dog like she was one of her own. She keeps a nice, quiet environment with a nice yard and patio room for the dogs, plus the run of much of the downstairs. The dogs are clearly happy and secure--which made me feel great--will use her again!
Maureen was great to work with...she gave us a nice tour and overview at our "meet and greet" so we were prepared when it came time for our dogs vacation stay.

During our time away from our dog she sent regular updates and pics of our girl and how much fun she was having with her new friends!

We were very happy with Maureen and would definately book with her again!
Maureen took great care of our 7 year old, 100 lb. baby boy, Ozzy. We really appreciated the meet and greet which Maureen set up to make sure that everything went smoothly during drop-off and pick-up times. Her large fenced in yard was very welcoming as well. We felt our lab would be safe and secure.

Maureen also took the time to text us while we were gone and send pictures, which was a very nice touch. Ozzy is a big baby during storms, but Maureen let us know that she had him as calm as possible.

We'll have Ozzy back to visit Maureen again soon and highly recommend her care!
Maureen took very good care of Wrigley, our old yellow lab. Wrigley is part of our family and has been for 13+ years. This is the first time we have left him--and it was a stressful decision to leave him behind. Maureen was great--she helped to alleviate my worry and sent texts with pictures during the week to keep us posted on Wrigley's stay. We will absolutely be using Maureen's services again, and would recommend her without hesitation!
Maureen took great care of our dog. We were pleased with the attention we felt she received while we were gone. We will definitely use her services again.
Loved that Maureen sent pictures and updates. Also liked that we had a meet and greet to make sure my dog was going to be comfortable when returning. She also took extra care making sure my dog was in before fireworks started which make her nervous. Plenty of room for playing and a place to hang inside too
We just picked up our spoiled puppy at Maureen's. She is happy, well cared for and so tired from all the playtime she had this weekend. Love the texts and photos that Maureen sent while we were gone. It helps us to worry less that our pup is well cared for and happy while we are away! She keeps a good eye on the dogs, and gets to know their personality. It is so hard to go on trips and leave your dog, Maureen has made us comfortable knowing she is in good hands.
Maureen was very accommodating and friendly. Oreo had a great time playing with his new friends!
Auntie Mo was the best!!! Our dog Fletcher came hope happy and exhausted from all the playtime. He enjoyed the freedom of her open fenced in back yard, and made some new dog friends. We will most definitely call Aunt Mo again!!!!
Our first time using dogvacay and all worked out well. Maureen was great with our 2 pups and appreciated the update texts to let us know how our dogs were doing during our vacation. Would use Maureen again for our next trip. Thanks Mo!
I had a trip that approached very rapidly and needed a place for my little guy to stay. I wanted to feel comfortable with where I was leaving him, and after meeting Maureen and her amazing dog, I fell in love and felt comfortable right away! She kept me updated throughout the trip with pictures and cute quotes! I will be back! I HIGHLY recommend anybody to Maureen! She worked with my crazy schedule and my little guy was so happy! Thank you so so so much from the bottom of my heart!
Maureen was set up nicely for doggie visitors. The fenced in yard was a great place for our 1 year dog to get rid of her energy. She came home happy but tired. We will return.
Maureen was able to help us on very short notice. She has a huge fenced and secure yard for the dogs to play, and took good care of our doggie. I will use her services again. Thanks Maureen!
Loved, loved, loved your big backyard and the other dogs I got to play with when I stayed with you last week!!! My mom and dad enjoyed the pics you sent so they knew I was safe and having fun. Hope to see you again real soon!

Your new friend, Bella
Fozzie had a great time with Maureen! We love the personal attention that he got. Maureen even took the time to send us pictures of Fozzie getting comfortable. We are always hesitant to leave him, as he is our own very spoiled pooch, but we would feel very confident leaving him with Maureen anytime!
Our first experience with Maureen was wonderful. She treated our dog, Sara, like her own pet. Our dog was able to be comfortable in a setting like her own home and also play with the other dogs. It's obvious Maureen really cares for her own dogs and the dogs she watches. We will definitely be bringing our dog back.
Maureen, Did a great job,We will be using Maureen again in a couple of weeks.
Our boy Jordy came home happy and healthy from his stay at Maureen's house. Because he is basically blind, we were very concerned about where he stayed while we went away for a few days. Mo made appropriate accommodations for Jordy and called to ask how he was after we got back home. We will ask to have Mo watch Jordy in the future.
Maureen was very caring and doted on our goldendoodle Maizy during our absence. She has a large fenced in yard and a well organized system for meal and play times.
Our 6 year old pup, Ranger had a nice vacation with Auntie Mo, Cooper and other pups; he is the only dog at home so he loved the socialization with others. Maureen has a very good system introducing dogs to her home and environment. It's obvious she loves dogs and what she does. We would recommend Spoiled Pups for dog sitting.
As always, we were able to count on Maureen to provide the very best care available. Thanks again Maureen!
Maureen was wonderful with my dog. He just lost his brother recently so he is anxious and a little depressed. She and her doggie helpers were able to make him feel welcome. She sent me pictures and text messages letting me see that he was at ease and adjusting well. She cares about her charges. This was my first experience with a pet sitter but it will not be my last. I plan on leaving my baby with Maureen anytime I need someone to take care of him.
Holly and Lance loved it. Both of our dogs came home exhausted from having so much fun. Maureen works well with both small and large breeds. Highly recommended.
It is very obvious that Maureen genuinely cares about the dogs she watches! No problems!
As always, our dog's stay with Maureen was great! Our boy loves the new friends he meets each time he stays and he enjoys the large, fenced in yard, where he has tons of room to run and play. We know he enjoys his time with Maureen and we have the utmost confidence and trust that his needs and those of the other dog guests are always met.
My husband and I think very highly of Maureen a/k/a Auntie Mo. With very short notice (during the height of the holiday season) we were suddenly put in a position of having no one to care for our boy, Bear, while we headed out of town for 6 nights. Fortunately, we found DogVacay and were immediately able to schedule a meet & greet with Auntie Mo, who was willing to step in as Bear’s caregiver for us at the last minute. Because of the meet & greet, we felt totally at ease leaving our little guy with Auntie Mo and the other dogs she cares for in her lovely home. We were so happy to receive the text updates with photos showing Bear having a good time with his new friends – especially on his 2nd birthday, since we weren't there to celebrate the milestone with him. Auntie Mo has the best attitude and was very accommodating when our flight was delayed on the way back. When we finally returned, we mentioned to Auntie Mo that we may need her to watch Bear for us again in about 8 weeks. Auntie Mo made a note of it and was kind enough to check back with us before making plans of her own, so we wouldn’t be caught without a caregiver for Bear while she was away. Overall, our first experience with DogVacay and Maureen was extremely positive and we would recommend it to our friends & family. It’s nice to know we can call Auntie Mo next time we are in need of someone to take excellent care of our boy. Thanks again, Auntie Mo!
Maureen was fantastic! She took great care of our pup while we were away for the holidays. Even better-he had a great time. He came home exhausted and happy. I would recommend Maureen to anyone, we will definitely use her again in the future! Thanks Maureen :)
Henry our 9 month old Springer Spaniel had a great time. While we were away on vacation we received text messages every day with plenty of pictures. We felt very very comfortable leaving our pet with Maureen. When I picked Henry up after our trip I got the sense that he felt very comfortable with Maureen.
Harley, our 3 year old Sammy, had a great stay last week with Maureen while we were on vacation.
Maureen is great with all the dogs she has visiting with her.
The fenced in back yard is great for getting exercise and burning off energy.
Harley will be staying with her again in the future!!

This was the fourth time we used Maureen's service and after a 10-day vacation period our puppy looked tired and happy. It is easy to note from the dog's behaviour that Maureen truly loves them.
I am so grateful to have found Maureen! She is absolutely wonderful with dogs. Mine happens to be one with high anxiety and she just took it in stride. In fact by the end of his stay he was fitting right in with the other dogs and even made a friend or two. I just can't thank her enough. She really has a true understanding of all dogs. I am so glad to find someone I really trust with my dog. She is the only one I will leave my DJ with from here on out.
This was the third time that our puppy stayed with Maureen and again it was great. Our puppy is always happy when arriving at Maureen's house and we believe this is a good sign. We now consider Maureen as our official 'pet-sitter'! Thanks Maureen for being so supportive!
My boys came home so tired, and with little stress. Maureen took Great care of the boys, I will definitely recommend her and book with her again.
Maureen was awesome! After visiting a kennel I knew I wouldn't be comfortable during our vacation. She sent texts and pics updating me daily. It was a great experience for Scout and the family!
My Dog seemed to have a great time with Maureen. We hope to use her again soon.
Maureen was great and truly loves animals! She was very responsive and our puppy was in great hands with her and her boys (two lovely golden retrievers). We would highly recommend her and look forward to using her services again soon.
Maureen is an absolute angel! My Fiance and I had to take a last minute trip to Houston for business. I researched all dog kennel places near me in the area and found a link for dogvacay.com. I wasn't aware of this service and as I browsed through the site I thought I can never leave my BabyGirl in a kennel again!! I found Maureen's profile and IMMEDIATELY and contacted her. Her response time was magnificent! We left our dog with her for about two weeks and when our dog came back to us she didn't want to leave her new 'Aunt Mo'! I without a doubt recommend her for anyone!!! She is so kind and loving and sends us updates and pictures DAILY;).

By the way - ADDED BONUS - she takes excellent care of several animals at once making it a great place for your animal to PLAY and be SOCIAL!! Please feel free to call us anytime for more info...however, Maureen is an instant treat to speak with and will alleviate any concerns you might have.

Hope this helps!

Maureen was great, Ozzy fit right in with her 2 and others dogs. Got nice pics and followups during and after our trip. Maureen loves dogs and can tell she really cares for them.
Maureen was great! We liked her the first time we met her, you can see that she takes good care of the dogs . She sent us pictures with Wolfi and updates , so it made it a little bit easier being apart from him. I would recommend Maureen to anybody I know. You can go in vacation with the peace in mind because she will take care of your dog !
Maureen was very accommodating and Rowdy came home happy after a 13 day stay. We received a couple picture messages as well. Thanks Maureen!
Maureen is very friendly and helpful. We knew Brendan would be very well cared for, as he was. We will certainly use her again.
Our 8 year old Labradoodle had a great time at Maureen's house. I contacted Maureen at the last minute and she could not have been more helpful. We brought Ranger to meet her and her dogs and he was very comfortable at her home. The next day we left him for 6 days and he had a great time. Maureen kept us updated with how he was doing by phoning us and sending pictures. Ranger loves to be around people all the time and with Maureen working out of her house it was a great fit. I highly recommend Maureen and we will ask her again in the future to dog sit for us.
Maureen is awesome! A true dog lover. We left Boomer with her for 10 days. She kept us updated on how he was doing. We had never left him that long, so we were a bit anxious about leaving him. Maureen sensed this. She sent us texts and pictures, so we knew he was doing well. Boomer ate normally and was interacting with the other dogs. We had a better time on our vacation because we felt assured that Boomer was in excellent hands. When we picked him up, he was a happy dog. He was not stressed from being away from us. We are very, very happy with the care Maureen gave Boomer. We highly recommend her.
Our dogs had another wonderful stay at Auntie Mo's house! They come home happy and well cared for. Maureen is just wonderful with our pups.They will be returning for another vacation in the future!
Thank you so much Maureen!!! Maureen is someone who loves what she does and it shows!!! Anna
Maureen was wonderful with A.J., treated him like a member of her family. She sent a note and picture via text every day to keep us updated on HIS vacation. We appreciated her kindness and enthusiasm and would recommend her to friends and family looking for a family environment, not a kennel for their pet.
Awesome! She treats the dogs like they are her own... They are not kennelled and have a yard to run in and are treated with love. Will definetly use whenever we go out of town!
Maureen was great with our dogs. She is patient and kind. You could tell our dogs were content staying with Maureen.
Maureen is a wonderful host. We took our two dogs to Maureen where they were welcomed by Maureen and her two, beautiful dogs. We were understandably nervous about the first meeting, but things couldn't have gone better. Our dogs were immediately comfortable in their new, temporary surroundings. We received progress reports and pictures of the dogs. All of our wishes were met and more!
We were thrilled with our experience with Maureen's care. We recently left our two westies with Maureen for a week. Maureen is so pleasant and a true dog lover which is very apparent when meeting her. She has a fenced back yard with plenty of room to roam. Her own two 'boys' are very good natured golden retrievers who wanted to play. Maureen's house is well situated for dog care, with plenty of room, yet able to isolate areas' with gates if helpful.
I think in our case, what made our experience especially positive was receiving a daily phone text/picture from Maureen showing our westies during their day and a little note about their day. Was such a comforting touch.
Maureen was very flexible with drop-off and pick-up time. We were very pleased and would highly recommend Maureen's service.

I'm so happy to have found DogVacay. Upon reviewing the hosts I found that Maureen was the best fit for us. I contacted Maureen for a meet and greet. She promplty responded to my email and made arrangements for us to meet. When we arrived to Maureen's home we were welcomed by her two wonderful golden retrievers, Cooper and Buddy, who immediately got along with our brittany Cooper. (I thought it was funny that our dogs had the same name.) This has been the best experience we have had. Knowing that our dog was being well cared for put us at ease while on vacation. Thank you Maureen for your outstanding service.
