About Crystal

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello Everyone!

For those of you who know us, our family is growing, and our first baby (a girl) is on the way! In light of this, I will only be watching "easy" & mature female dogs for the foreseeable future. (no boys, puppies, barkers, aggressives, or pups that have accidents). So sorry...but availability for "Sweet Old Lady" pups or well behaved female dogs only.

Meet-n-greet is required for ALL new clients.

Amenities: Stair-free ranch style house, large fenced in backyard overlooking a water reservoir, 3 bedroom/two bath, screened in back porch, orthopedic pet beds, and toys, toys, toys.

Care: Cage free private boarding with 24/7 supervision and care. Emergency transportation available at all times. (No crates unless provided and requested by owner)

My Household:
Me: OCD clean, I keep a very organized and tidy home. Even though the fur is a battle, and laundry is a daily must; dogs are allowed anywhere they are used to being: couch, bed, etc. I also love hot tea, Martha Stewart, antiquing, and baking.

Husband: Executive Chef. Loves food, Auburn, and giving doggy belly rubs.

Finn (Dog): Great Pyrenees Mix. Half the height of the breed standard, but just as broad. Hip dysplasia, joint issues, and lays down 90% of the day. He also loves laser light, eating bees, and licking the cat food saucer.

Bailey (Cat):Blue Mitted Ragdoll. Dog friendly, and very talkative. Loves sunning on the back porch and watching the world from her kitty tower.

Any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to send me a quick inquiry.

Crystal was so sweet. Her home was heaven for Tallulah.
Crystal is amazing! My dog Nala is little skittish but she absolutely enjoys experience everytime. She gets planty of exercise in Crystal's big and clean backyard with her friends. Crystal also sends me a lot of pictures throughout the day which helps 'my' separation anxiety :). Her house is unbelievably clean all the time. Her husband and her dog Finn are also amazing and love puppies! I have to struggle everytime to take her back home since Nala has such a good time and doesn't want to leave. We sure will be back soon before she knows it. 100% recommending her!

Wonderful experience for my dog Abby and for me. Large fenced back yard with Crystal's very sociable dog as a playmate. Crystal sent photos each day to update me. Home extremely neat and clean. All in all, this will be my choice for Abby.
Crystal is the best! We had been boarding Roxy with our vet when family couldn't watch her when we had to go out of town. While the vet is great, Roxy is much more comfortable in a family environment. Crystal provides just that. A big backyard for her to roam around freely and a buddy to hang out with (Finn, Crystal's pup) is much less stressful for her. Crystal would text pictures to show how she was doing along the way. She has become our go-to for whenever we can't bring Roxy with us. Thanks very much, Crystal!

Our golden retriever, cinnamon, spent the week with crystal along with her dog and cat. Crystal sent daily pictures clearly showing cinnamon was well taken care of and comfortable with the sourounding. I would recommend crystal and plan on using her for future needs.

Repeat user with Crystal, as always it was a great crate free experience ):
Cinderella had a great time, I've used Crystal several times and it's always a great and easy experience.
Cinderella absolutely loves going to Crystal's! I was nervous about leaving her because she is 14 and can be temperamental but she did great and Crystal sent pics and updates!
Crystal updated my dog's pictures to me when I was out of town for five days. My dog enjoyed different doggie friends in Crystal's place. She has a super clean and sweet home with a big lake view and fenced yard. Recommend Crystal. You will enjoy your trip and so do your dogs.

Oh, my gosh - Crystal is the best!! She is so calm and sent me so many cute pictures and captions about my darling 14 year old girl. She had other guests at the time and everyone seemed to be having such a fun camp-like experience. Crystal's house is very clean and neat and her yard is just great. My dog will stay with her when I'm on vacation in March and I have breathed a sigh of relief that now I can plan my trip and have fun and know that my dog will be extremely well taken care of!

Of course, I just love Crystal and her boy Finn! Dixie is always happy playing with the other dogs and enjoying relaxation! She is like one of the family!
This was Cinnamon's first stay with Crystal and I must say she had a great time playing with the other dogs. When she got home, she slept the entire day. I would say we have found a second home for Cinnamon!
Crystal is a great caretaker. She loves on the doggies, gives them treats, and let's them rule the roost. Dixie was happy and loved the fact that she could sleep on the furniture (like she does at home). The home is very well kept and the huge back yard is great for playing and lounging in the sun. Dixie will definitely be back! Thanks Crystal!

Crystal was a great host for Abby and Marley. She was wonderful about sending pictures and updates regularly. Our dogs seemed to have a very good time with her. :) She is a pleasure to work with - so sweet. We will definitely use her again.
I wish there were more stars for me to give Crystal and her husband. My guy had a stroke and became a special needs dog. So, the options of who could watch him became limited and the number of people I trusted to watch him was even fewer.

I am so grateful to have found Crystal. She showed my old guy kindness, love, and patience. I never worried. The amount of work and time my dog required was a lot. Not many people would have been up for the challenge. She did it every time and never complained.

She would even send my dog home with treats and goodies when I picked him up. She even would randomly text to see how my dog was doing.

Again I wish I convey how amazing of a dog host Crystal is. There isn't enough room. My dog recently passed but he was with Crystal just a few days before passing. It always gave me great comfort to know that in his final days he was surrounded by so much love when I was out of town.

Please use Crystal. Your dog will be loved and she always went above and beyond the nominal fee I paid her.

This was our first time using DogVacay but Crystal,
Finn, and Bailey made our dog Gabby feel right at home. Great home and back yard. Crystal sent
picture updates throughout weekend to let us know
everything was fine. The whole experience was
easy and we felt much better about it than boarding our Gabby at kennel. We will definitely be using
Crystal again in future.

Crystal was very helpful and attentive when she watched our senior Cocker Spaniel. Our Mia needed a little extra love and attention because she just turned 17! With Crystal watching her we were able to relax knowing she was in good hands. Crystal even kept us updated with pictures over the weekend. We would definitely recommend her services and/or use her again!

Kona loves playtime. She and Finn have an amazing time. We recently lost our other dog Mia. Kona seemed to be out of sorts until we came back to Crystal's and then Kona lit up. She misses being part of a pack and loves playing all day with Finn. Thank you Crystal for helping us find our groove!

Day care was amazing! Kona came home nice and tired. I got a number of pictures during the day. It was great to see Kona playing with Finn (Crystal's dog). She looked like she had a blast. Thanks for a great stay
Crystal was awesome! Mia and Kona had the best time. Her yard is amazing and the dogs were right at home playing with Finn. I loved getting pictures from Crystal throughout their visit - I felt like I was watching the party happen :-)

Crystal did a great job with Mia who had storm issues and made sure she had a safe place to be. She was wonderful with both girls and we will be visiting again soon.

Crystal is amazing with my dog. She is so caring and knowledgeable about how to care for dogs that are ill, anxious, or have some behavior problems. I was hesitant to book with her because she has a dog and a cat and my dog growls at dogs and cats. Her home is some calming and my dog felt at home right away and I even have pictures from Crystal with my dog and her dog and cat getting along! Crystal is everything I was looking for in a home petsitter!
