About Alaina

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had animals all my life. Most animals take to me very easily. My husband says I'm another dog whisperer.

My pet Maggie has passed away. You will still see her photo in resident dogs because she will never leave my heart! While she was alive I treated her diabetes. She had it for a little over a year. This makes me well versed in the administration of injected medication. I also understand the importance of a very scheduled and portioned feeding plan.

I have a large fenced I yard and also a screened in back porch. The animals will be able to go out as much as they like as long as the weather permits. We live in nice neighborhood with good sidewalks. At your discretion we can go on several small walks, play in the yard, and play in the sprinkler in the warm weather.

Great care will be taken to respect your wishes when it comes to your loved on.

I do have to add that while I will be able to check in on your feline friends I will not be able to have them in my home.

This was a perfect place for my pups. The doggy door and large fenced in yard were a plus. Great family, very dog friendly home. Alaina was awesome and kept in touch with me while I was out of town, sent photos and made me feel very comfortable. Wonderful experience, will definitely use her again!

This was our first time using the DogVacay Service and I was very nervous leaving my Westie with someone. Alaina was very kind, super accommodating and very flexible. She communicated and sent pictures during the week of our vacation and I felt totally comfortable leaving my pup and excited that I know I have a place for Gracie to go the next time I'm out of town. I would highly recommend Alaina for any of your pet stays.

Alaina is amazing! We booked last minute but she was helpful and accommodating. She sent me updates and was fexible on the pick up time! Koda had a blast and we will definitely recommend Alaina!
Alaina was very accommodating and friendly. She was loving to Sydney and kept me informed throughout my trip as to how it was going. She took great care with Sydney and I will be using her again.
My dog Zoe had a good time with Alaina. She got to ply with other dogs and have fun. It was my first time being away and having to experience a Doggy care/boarding situation. I felt comfortable, I never felt a moment of stress and Alaina gave me updates. I would definitely use her services again and recommend to others!

Being new to the area, we needed to find some to watch our dogs over the weekend. We have a Morkie who loves people but doesn't get along with other dogs too well. We are very happy we chose to try Alaina to watch our pups. She did a wonderful job and our Morkie also became friends with a chocolate lab. We would definitely recommend her and will use her serves again when we need them!

She was great. We had time constraints and were unable to meet in person before the booking. She made me feel extremely comfortable on the phone and compromised to meet our needs. My dogs were extremely content when we returned. We look forward to working with her again!

Alaina and her family were great with our Chocolate Labrador, Duke. They let Duke make himself at home in their home, adapting to his habits. We felt very comfortable boarding him with this family and will use them again.
I cannot say enough great things about Alaina! She took such good care of boogie and in the future she will be the person I contact first. She is patient and genuinely kind. I could never thank her enough she surely does go above and beyond to make pets feel at home.

Alaina did a great job keeping my pup when we went out of town, even with a few hours notice.
Alaina was kind and attentive to our 4 year old beagle, Augie. It was so nice getting the pictures and video during the week we were gone. I think I watched the video at least 10 times!
This wonderful family took great care of my two dachshunds! I received regular updates and pictures...I never worried about them because I knew they were having a ball! Alaina and her family cared for my boys just as I do! Thanks so much!!
She was very flexible and understanding. I was kinda late dropping off and picking up Rocky. Her house is setup so the dogs have plenty of room to move around. Rocky was definitely a happy dog.
Alaina made Jack feel like home and was great with him. Overall I would use the service again and recommended Alaina to anyone in need of a dog sitter.
Alaina was terrific with my dogs. She came in to check on them when I had an extra-long work day, took them out, sent me pictures, and when I got home the dogs were calm and happy, which is the most important thing. I'm already planning a longer work trip because I know the dogs will be safe and happy with Alaina watching them.

Alaina was amazing from the moment we met her. Our dog has some anxiety issues so I was very nervous about leaving him as he had never been boarded and only been watched previously by family. Alaina just sat right down with him until he was comfortable with her. She kept us informed of how everything was going while we were gone which really helped ease my mind. When we returned home it was obvious that our pets had been taken great care of. I will definitely call her again and can't recommend her any more highly.

Great stay Gauge absolutely loved it! From the Meet and Greet to the actual visit Alaina was nothing short of awesome! Will definitely be a repeat customer!!!
Alaina was great about sending pictures of our dog while we were on our vacation and flexible with our schedule. Would use her again for sure.
Alaina is the best dog sitter my wife and I have ever used. She truly went above and beyond to make the experience as easy as possible. We could tell right away that she really cares about our dog Maggie and treated her as is she was her own. We have used her service 2 times in the last few weeks and both times she not only picked Maggie up but also dropped her off. Each time Maggie returned we could tell how relaxed and happy she was. As long as Alaina is in the dog sitting business we will go no where else. Would highly recommend her to anyone.

Alaina is absolutely the best, she's a real life saver, I'm from Arizona and I needed to get my son's dog safe for a few days until I could get to Virginia to get him and she stepped up to help a stranger 2400 miles away.
I loved that she posted pictures of him daily, it was a mood booster for sure,
She was also GREAT at working extra days with me.
I have never used a dog sitter before but
ALAINA HAS TO BE THE ABSOLUTE BEST.
