About Holly

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
All my beloved friends, Lady, Benjamin, Roberto, Basil, Alex and little Cody (The Codester) have passed over The Rainbow Bridge. I miss them all. I would love the opportunity to care for your 4 legged friends. I live on a quiet street and have a large fenced-in back yard. I'm 5 minutes from the airport and as an added convenience you could leave your car in my driveway and take a cab to the airport if you wish. I work two 4 hour shifts on Tuesdays and Thursdays at a local business but otherwise my time is flexible. The pup pictured in my listing is my granddog Vivian who stays with me when her mom travels. She loves the yard!

We picked Holly O for our first doggy vacay and we are so glad that we did. I am the overprotective doggy mama type and Holly took all my worries away. She sent photos throughout my pups stay and was really quick with communication. Holly's backyard is a safe place for dogs to play and her house makes any dog feel at home. I would highly recommend Holly O. and will definitely utilize her services again.

Our DogVacay experience with Holly was outstanding. She has been doing this for a while and it shows! She is friendly and professional. Max does not do great with others and it was nice he was the only one there and pampered. Holly has a great fenced in yard, which he loved. The daily multiple photo updates were fabulous and Max looked like he was having a great time. The meet and greet went well and was much appreciated. It helped us all get to know each other!

Norman had a grand old time yet again at Holly's house. It's his home away from home :) Thank you, Holly!
We LOVED having our dogs stay with Holly! She folds the pups right into her family life and home. She sent great photos every day, and I have to say, the dogs looked so happy and relaxed, we were a little worried they wouldn't want to come home with us after our vacation!

We have a very "spoiled" poodle, and he was more than loved, played with, and well taken care of, as was shown by Holly's daily pictures of "our kid" Responsible, caring, and professional approach
for those that have "kids" that need that extra special attention, and parents that make sure their
"furry kid" only has the best.
We have already booked again!

Holly is fantastic. Very responsive and sends us photos every day. Scout feels very comfortable and loves visiting Holly!
I travel every month, so not only is her location convenient to the airport, but I feel relaxed Scout is safe and happy while I'm away!

Holly was great watching over our dogs. She sent regular updates and was very responsive with scheduling and any questions we had. We would definitely bring our dogs to her again!
Slippers and I had a wonderful experience with Holly. I was traveling from out of town, and needed a dog sitter for the evening. Her flexibility and location to the airport was great, as was her caring nature. I received a mid-evening update, and felt confident Slippers got plenty of play time, walks, and cuddles. Would definitely keep Holly in mind should my travels take me through MN again- Thanks, Holly!

We were so happy with the care our dogs Terra and Daisy received. We could tell they had a great time and were in good hands. We really appreciated the daily photos/updates that Holly sent. Would book with her again.
Our two dogs loved staying with Holly! They had a blast running around in her backyard chasing each other and squirrels. One of our dogs isn't very friendly to new people, but he warmed up to Holly very quickly. Holly was great about sending us lots of pictures throughout our dog's stay with her. Will definitely be asking Holly to watch them over our next trip!

This was my first experience with Dog Vacay and we could not be happier with Holly. Getting daily picture updates was wonderful and our dogs seemed so happy. It was truly a vacation for our dogs- they had so much attention, backyard play time and honestly I think they are a little sad to leave Holly's! We felt so comfortable with Holly we will definitely be leaving our dogs with her again!

Norman once again had a fabulous vacation at Holly's house. He started whining with excitement in the car when we pulled up to her street. Now that we're home and his vacay is over, if he hears her name, he starts running around the house looking for her. We all love Holly!

Roxie loves going to visit Holly. She gets so excited when we drive up her street. Holly has such a warm spirit and a welcoming home. It is her favorite spot to vacation!!
Holly was awesome!!! We will certainly be using her again! The dogs had a great time!
This was the first time Dibs had been away from us for more than a night and Holly did a fantastic job of making Dibs feel loved and cared for. Dibs has been looking out the window ever since we returned as if she's wondering "where's Holly?" :-) We're very pleased and feel lucky that Dibs has found such a wonderful friend and companion.

Holly was very flexible with scheduling and had very reliable communication throughout the process.
While we were gone we did not worry about our dogs at all. Holly sent pictures and updates while we were away and we knew they were being well cared for! We hope she is available next time we travel and need to leave the puppies at home.

Dibs had an absolutely fabulous time with Holly. She immediately made Dibs feel comfortable and I could tell that they were going to be friends for life! It's obvious to me that Holly has a great instinct for every individual dog's needs. I'm so glad I found her!

Biskit had another fabulous vacay with Holly! She was so excited to be back at Holly's that she raced around the yard and jumped in the snow. Holly sent creative updates and pictures of Biskit each day so we could see for ourselves how comfortable she was at Holly's. I appreciate Holly's flexibility too. We didn't worry about Biskit one bit while we were away!

Our dog had a great time with Holly. We received updates and photos daily. He was spoiled and didn't want to leave! We would definitely use Holly again!
Norman once again came home happy, healthy and tired! Thank you, Holly, for taking such good care of our pup!
Our English Bulldog puppy, Norman, had a blast at his new friend Holly's house. This was the first time we humans had left Norman, so we were all a little nervous. Holly was great with all three of us and sent pictures of Norman enjoying himself on his doggy vacay which in turn allowed us humans to enjoy their vacay. Norman came home happy and thoroughly exhausted... a good thing with a puppy. Thank you for taking such good care of our pup!

Biskit had a wonderful 2-week stay with Holly! She was so comfortable at Holly's house. She usually won't eat for a few days, but she ate right away. And she loved the big fenced in back yard. Holly and her husband did a terrific job walking her, brushing her teeth, giving her just her special food, and making her feel loved. The pictures of Biskit we received were so helpful in knowing that Biskit was having a fun vacation too! Biskit will definitely be going to Holly's on our next vacation.

Holly was an amazing host for our pooch, Bucky. We felt immediately at ease with her and her ability to work around our pooch's picky eating. Her close location to the airport and the ability for her to pick us up and park our car at her home was incredibly convenient. She sent us a lot of updates and we were able to be at ease and enjoy our vacation knowing our Bucky was in great hands.

Holly watched Roxie for two weeks while we were on vacation. Holly took great care of Roxie and she came back healthy, happy and relaxed. It was wonderful to be able to leave her with such a caring and gracious host. We did not worry at all, because we knew Roxie was having a wonderful vacation as well.

It would be difficult to find a better dog sitter. Holly was able to adapt her routine to meet our needs. It was obvious that she cared for our dogs as if they were her own. They where healthy and happy when we returned from a week away. I hope she'll be available the next time our dogs need a vacation.

Holly did a great job taking care of my American Eskimo Gandalf, especially since he can be a handful! She made sure he got plenty of exercise and made sure he behaved well.
Holly was an excellent sitter for my two goldendoodles. She has a large yard and deck
for the dogs to enjoy and she provided lots of attention and walks. I could tell the dogs were happy there and bonded with her. I highly recommend Holly and I will be bringing my dogs to her again.
