*Any dogs that bark nonstop while in the crate will not be accepted. Sleep is important! :-)
*All dogs must be potty trained, this includes no marking territory in the house.
*Holiday rate is $40.00 per night.
*puppy rate is $35.00 per night (under 1 yr)

Thank you for reviewing my profile! Rescuing and helping dogs is my life's work/passion. I have loved dogs since I was 6 years old and my dad brought home Newfoundland puppies. I am an animal advocate in every sense of the word and am overprotective when caring for the fur babies! I specialize in large breed dogs, but I can care for small dogs as well. I never use a choke, prong, shock, or martingale collars. If you have a dog that pulls when walking, I can provide an easy walk harness for medium to large dogs.

**ATTENTION: DogVacay charges per 24 hour time period. Therefore, for any stays that include an additional half day, there will be a small fee of $10. Example: a client is dropped off Monday at 10 a.m. And picked up Tuesday at 5 p.m., there will be a charge for one full day plus a half day for the additional 7 hours. **


*Fostered with the German Shepherd Rescue of Central Colorado
*Volunteered with Every Creature counts
*Volunteered 10 hours of dog training to Big Dogs Huge Paws rescue
*Animal Behavior College certified(dog trainer)
*Fostered and volunteered with the German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California

My home is a big, spacious floor plan for your pup to run around, as well as being a very laid back environment. I can provide a xl crate for your pup if they are crate trained and prefer to sleep in there overnight. It also has a divider for smaller dogs.
* I currently am open to having ONE client in my home at a time. It is important that your dog is potty trained, friendly, and non-aggressive to other dogs. Any non-stop barking, aggression, or dominating behaviors will not be tolerated. I do ask that your pet is up to date on shots, deworming, and flea free. I do not have children, and am self-employed so I will be mostly at home to care for your fur baby. I have one dog of my own that is friendly around all dogs. I will be present at all times to keep an eye on our pups. At any time I need to step away, they will be kept separated for safety. I would be an excellent choice for any dog that likes to go for a walk in the morning then spend the rest of the day being lazy and getting loved on.

My dog Annie seemed to have a very good time while with Allison. she sent us daily pictures which showed us that Annie was getting along really well with Allisons dog. When we picked up Annie she was in a really good mood. I would use Allison again if i have another trip to take.
Owen loves going to Allison. I always get photo updates which is huge for me, and I know he is safe and had a friend to play with!
This was the first time my little guy went to a sitter, and I have to admit I was a little worried leaving him for the weekend, but Allison was wonderful! She was open to me contacting her to check on Hercules and willingly provided updates and pictures to ease my mind. I will definitely be looking to book with her next time!
Allison was amazing! So was Captain, the resident dog. My 5 month old (full of energy) Shepherd was completely worn out when he came home from all the fun he had while staying with Allison.

I love that she is home to provide 24-7 care. She's very careful and monitors them at all times. And she sent pictures of my baby often, which was a nice treat since this was the first time leaving him with someone else.

We had an unexpected emergency with our other dog during the stay and Allison was so accommodating with our last minute change of plans. Hendrix will definitely heading back to play with Captain and Allison soon!
Everything went according to plan and she was very accommodating. She went the extra mile and sent me pictures and messages on my dog during my leave. Great experience.
Owen was very happy at Allison's house! She welcomed him in with a Kong treat and he was at home instantly. I didn't worry about him once. I was only traveling about 2 hrs away, and before I could get there I already had two update pictures! I also got another later that night, and a message when they went to bed. The next day I received a youtube video of "loose leash training." Owen was walking slow and behaving! When I got there all was and I was at ease knowing he was so comfortable when I arrived to pick him up. Thank you! We will be seeing you again soon!
