About Priscilla

16 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: I love cats and offer cat sitting as well as dog sitting! I'm happy to stay at your house or visit your kitty while you're away.

Hello! Are you ready for your pup to have the vacay of a lifetime?

I offer dog boarding services in YOUR home. I prefer pet sitting in your home because that's where your dog will feel most at ease and comfortable.

I have owned dogs all my life and have been a pet sitter for 4 years, I love nothing more than caring for and evening spoiling my guest pups. Right now I have a 17 year old Border Collie mix that is my best friend, he's taught me so much about life and how to care for dogs. I feel dogs deserve to be treated with love and respect and they always return the love ten fold.

Please be prepared to let me know all about your dog! I want to know their routine and any special needs they may have so I can make sure to give them the care they need and deserve. Even if it's something as small as getting treats before bedtime or being picked up when they're sleepy, please let me know so I can do my best to make them as comfortable as possible.

I love taking guest dogs on walks, hikes and to the park for playtime. I am prepared for long fetch games, never-ending belly rubs, and early morning walks. I also work at an extremely dog friendly office so your dog will be by my side 24/7, no matter what.

I am a young and responsible professional with great references and I can't wait to meet you and your pup!

Priscilla was amazing! We had Priscilla stay with us and our two dogs. She provided picture updates frequently, without us having to ask first. We came home to very happy dogs and will be requesting her for a future trip!
Priscilla is so sweet and attentive with my new 8 weeks old puppy. Her first day sitting, she was able to teach him to sit. And she's helped tremendously with housetraining him. She sends the most adorable videos and pics throughout the day. When I replay the video clips, my puppy gets so excited hearing her voice! I would wholeheartedly recommend Priscilla and will no doubt be requesting her services on a regular basis in the future.
Priscilla was great! She took care of my two cats and was great giving one of them meds twice a day. Would definitely recommend!
Right out of the gates Priscilla was awesome- she made it incredibly convenient to stop by before we left and go over all the details (our animals took to her immediately too which just makes you feel good). She sent us updates and amazing photos everyday, doing everything to make us feel great about leaving our guys at home, we didn't have to worry about anything the entire week. We will absolutely be requesting her again!
Absolutely wonderful dog sitting experience from meet-n-greet to departure. We're pretty sure our pups were hoping Priscilla would stay with them forever. Will DEFINITELY be asking Priscilla to stay again.
Priscilla was AMAZING. This pains me to write because it means she will be booked out when we need her, but I have to.
Priscilla really went the extra mile she showed up on time for the meet and greet, she asked all the right questions and more and was not intimidated by Bruno's excitement and tail chasing.
During the vacay, she was generous with him and took him hiking. Photos came all day long with little reports, that was a treat that made us giggle. Priscilla was also really flexible with timing and came early and stayed later than expected.
Bruno is totally in love with Priscilla and her kind energy. She gave him a toy he won't be without. We are thinking of inviting her just so he can see her!
Thanks, Priscilla, we can't wait to have you over again! A,W, & Bruno
I cannot emphasize enough of Priscilla's smarts, tact, and total integrity as a person and professional. She is by far the best sitter I've ever had for my dog Dashi, who responds to her on the warmest level I've seen compared to other sitters, which speaks volumes to how well Dashi was treated. This review is for two extended stays she did, 12 and 8 days respectively within a month of time. Both times, I came home to a calm dog with all habits/commands in tact, and in all honesty, the house was cleaner than before I left (she deep cleaned parts of the house that I had neglected!) She is extremely communicative, and goes out of her way to take care of details big and small. I had a couple guests staying at the house for one night while we were gone and she offered and actually picked them up from the airport!!

I trust Priscilla completely with Dashi and my home. I've had some horror stories with past sitters so it's actually a huge relief to have found someone so wonderful for Dashi to be with while I'm gone. Thank you for everything, Priscilla.
Priscilla is the best. Harvey is always happy and well taken care of. Love the photos she sends as well!
Priscilla was such a great sitter for our pup, Archer. As first time DogVacay users, we were a bit unsure about the whole experience, but Priscilla made us feel totally at ease when she came over for a meet and greet. She asked a bunch of questions and made sure she was up to speed on his schedule, likes and dislikes, etc. She was super communicative during our long weekend trip, continually sending us updates, photos and videos of all her adventures with Archer. She even took Archer on a hike - much needed excursion with his energy level!

Highly recommend Priscilla. It's obvious that she loves dogs and ensures that they feel at home and get out all the energy they need to!
Priscilla was great with our fur-babies! She sent lots of pictures during her visit and we knew they were well cared for and happy during our absence.
Priscilla was so great and so sweet! I would definitely recommend her and would contact her again in the future. I loved how she gave many photo updates and how she made communication fly by with a breeze.
Priscilla genuinely cares about your pet. she is also respectful of your home and instructions for her. i would recommend her in a heart beat always.
This is our 9th time having Priscilla stay with our dog Hobbes and she is an absolute gem. Trustworthy, communicative, always sending pictures to keep us updated of how he's doing, and going above and beyond to make sure our minds are at ease. She is the best.
Love Priscilla! She's so great with Harvey and always sends picture updates. Harvey barely realizes that I'm gone.
Priscilla was wonderful. She is so sweet to our young pup and he loved spending time with her in her big backyard while we were away. She was kind enough to be patient with my very special request to come earlier to our place so we could sneak out while she was there so he wouldn't feel like we were abandoning him. It's only been a couple of weeks since we brought him home from the shelter so we wanted his first dogsitting experience to be as pleasant and safe as possible. Needless to say, Priscilla was great at going along with it and Oliver had so much fun that night that he slept in a good 3 hours the day after. Thanks to her my husband and I were able to enjoy ourselves at our concert, which after adopting our baby has become a bit of a luxury. Highly recommend!
Priscilla is the best sitter ever! She is my go-to sitter for Rascal and Juliet all the time. :)
Priscilla watched our 2 cats for 26 days! Almost one month while we were out of the country, so you could imagine how worried and uneasy we were about the whole idea knowing how particular cats tend to be with their surroundings.
After meeting Priscilla once I knew our boys would be in good hands. She not only sent us daily photos and videos, she went above and beyond with other requests we had. We ran out of litter and went on her own accord to pick some up for us. When we returned our cats were happy, healthy and glad to see us. It really reassured us that they were fine while we were away. I'm definitely going to be reaching out to her again for our next vacation.
A million thanks Priscilla!
I know that Harvey is in good hands when he's on a DogVacay with Priscilla. Love the picture updates via text!
Roxie and Chalupa had another fun weekend with Priscilla. I also had a good weekend away knowing that they were happy and being well taken care of. I very much appreciate all of the updates and pictures. Priscilla will continue to be our go to sitter!
Harvey loves when Priscilla comes over for a DogVacay. She always sends updates and he seems happy and healthy upon my return.
Priscilla is awesome with Parker and very accommodating! Lots of great photo updates and he usually comes home with a couple new tricks up his sleeve!
Priscilla is awesome!! I have never left my beloved dog, Ruby, for more than a couple of days and I had a lot of anxiety about leaving her for two weeks.
Priscilla calmed my nerves by meeting with me twice before I left. She was attentive to details about Ruby's care and she was affectionate with Ruby.
Priscilla stayed at my home. She sent me pictures and an email gave me great comfort to see pictures of Ruby.
Ruby had a small medical issue on the day that I left for my trip. Priscilla was on top of it, she took Ruby to the vet, gave her medication and stayed in touch with me throughout her treatment.
I can't say enough good things about Priscilla...she was loving, caring, thoughtful, and playful with Ruby.
When I returned, it was as if I never left, Ruby was happy and my home was cleaner than when I left it. :-)
Thank you, Priscilla, for giving me the peace of mind to be able to travel.
Another great Dog Vacay with Priscilla! She's super communicative, takes great pictures, and Harvey loves her. Will definitely be booking her again!
Another great experience with Priscilla. Harvey loves her and I never have to worry about him when I'm away!
Priscilla is the best host, as always. She sent tons of photos of our dogs having fun over the weekend, and even took one of them on a hike! Always feel comfortable leaving our pups knowing they're in good hands with her.
Priscilla was fantastic. She kept me updated on her visits and sent lots of pictures and text messages. I knew that Harvey was in good hands while I was gone!
My husband and I are so happy to have found Priscilla. I'm a crazy dog mom who doesn't trust just anybody with my girls! I constantly worry about them, but the 3 days we were gone, Priscilla kept me updated with lots of texts and pictures, and whenever I texted her, I always got a quick response. I was a little concerned about one of my dogs who is super high energy and also likes to bark at other dogs on walks, but Priscilla handled her like a pro! It was so nice actually enjoying our time away because I knew our doggies were in good hands. We came home to a clean house and happy dogs! I will recommend Priscilla to friends and also be contacting her for future dog sitting.
Priscilla did an amazing job taking care of Winnie! Excellent communication before, during, and after her stay. We know our dog was well-cared for and we will definitely request her again. Thank you!
Priscilla is the absolute best!!!! I never worry when she is taking care of my babies.
Priscilla cared for our frenchie in our home for almost 2 weeks last year. She was available on short notice and made time to visit and talk with us prior to the vacay to make sure she got all the care guidelines and meet our little guy.

We received many photo updates that were so helpful to put us at ease that he was being cared for and loved.

The best endorsement was how he ran to the gate after Priscilla when she dropped by to leave our keys.

I've finally taken the time to sit and write this because I am actually on again booking Priscilla for a second stay!
I don't think we could have asked for a better person to take care of Kobi over a long weekend. Our flight was super delayed and Priscilla was so nice to stop by after dinner to take Kobi out one more time on the last day. If I ever need someone again Priscilla will be my choice!
I've had my dog for 7 years. She's a bit complicated with emotional issues that don't allow me to leave her with anyone for long. I've had friends watch her only to tell me that she refused to go to the bathroom all day long, wouldn't eat, and has an attitude with them. Now going on vacations requires me to take her so I wouldn't ruin my trip worrying about her; and forget day long activities with friends. For 7 years that never happened!

I finally decided to find someone I could trust and hoped to have a relationship develop with my dog. Today was the first day Priscilla looked after my dog. I was concerned about how my dog would react to her coming into the house and taking her out for a walk while I wasn't there (even though she had been introduced to her earlier). I'm not going to lie, it wasn't easy for Priscilla. I wasn't surprised when she told me that my dog would sit there, refusing to walk. I wasn't surprised when she told me that my dog wouldn't go to the bathroom. I wasn't surprised that in the hour she was with her, my dog refused to give into her. What did surprise me was that Pricilla didn't give up on her after her hour was over and she came back again later to get the job done! Finally! Success! I was not expecting her to go above and beyond for my dog. I was so worried that my dog was too complicated that Priscilla wouldn't be interested in working with her again. Again, to my surprise she texted me and told me that my dog will learn how to trust her more the next time. I'm just so happy that there CAN be a next time :) YAY!

My point in this overly long drawn out story is that my dog is not easy. Most of my family and friends can't even stand her. It takes a special person to understand and work with her. Thank you Priscilla for taking good care of my baby. It gives me comfort in knowing that I can leave for a day or two and not have to worry anymore because you have her best interest at heart and you really care.
Priscilla was wonderful- very responsive when booking and our 2 dogs LOVED her. We could tell right away during the meet and greet that they approved of our choice. She was even able to accommodate an extra night at the last minute when our friend got ill and couldn't house sit as expected. I would definitely recommend her.
Priscilla was great. You can tell she's a dog person and has tons of patience. My dogs are older, and one is grumpy so I worry about them, but she kept me updated and made me feel a lot better. Overall, it was a great experience.
Priscilla is truly a pawsome dogsitter. This past weekend was the second time she stayed with our sweet Murphy, a border collie mix, and he adores her. He has separation anxiety so it's hard to leave him...he usually sits depressed by the front door when we are gone. But with Priscilla he has a blast - she sends us text updates, photos, and videos and gives him lots of love. We also feel confident letting her stay in our house - it's always clean and orderly when we get back.
When we came home yesterday we could tell Murph had a great weekend. He was like "oh guys again....meh".
Priscilla was an amazing dogsitter! She stayed with our two dogs for the weekend and sent some adorable photo updates. They both got tons of exercise and were clearly well cared for! Would definitely book with her again.
Priscilla was everything I could have wanted in a dog walker/sitter! She was very responsive, easy to talk to and obviously extremely bright and caring. I will definitely use her again!
Priscilla watched Skipper in my home over the July 4th weekend. I got daily photos and updates and came home to a happy dog and a clean home. She is a delightful person who greets your dog eye-to eye and who does a terrific job.
Priscilla was amazing! I am extremely picky with who I choose to take care of my animals. When she first came over for a meet-n-greet, I knew she was the right person for the job. My animals immediately took to her and she had such a warm and caring energy. I always worry when I leave my animals, but I definitely didn't worry as much knowing Priscilla was here. She even took pictures and sent them to me! She is the best!
This is the 3rd time (or maybe second time) we've used Priscilla and she is amazing! Always in touch and always making sure our dogs are well taken care of. I came home to a clean house and two happy dogs! Thanks again Priscilla.
Priscilla did an amazing job with Ellerbe, my high-energy border collie mix. I’m usually hesitant leaving Ellerbe with most people because she has a bit of separation anxiety and generally requires a little more specialized attention but Priscilla is now one of the few people that I feel safe leaving Ellerbe with!
Priscilla was fantastic! She took such good care of my animals and even sent me texts and photos of them while I was away. I would highly recommend her. She is the best!
It was wonderful knowing that Priscilla was staying at the house which allowed my dogs to keep their routines and gave me great peace of mind! Priscilla did a fantastic job taking care of the dogs and the house. I look forward to being able to use her services again!!
Priscilla did a wonderful job with my pups. I didn't have to worry about them at all and she sent me a few text messages just to keep me updated. The dogs were happy when I got home :) Will use her again for sure! If she'll have us :)
Priscilla is the best! She came over for the meet-n-greet and got along with Cooper great. She is very personable and you could tell she really loves dogs which is why we knew right away that it was a match. She wanted to know Cooper's schedule and I love the fact that she is willing to stay at your place where the dog is most comfortable. She walked him and sent us pictures and I could tell she played with him a lot because he was all of a sudden playing with one of his old toys he never touched before. Our place was just as clean when we got back from our trip and Cooper didn't even seem to have missed us that much! We will be using Priscilla again for sure.
We had to find someone to watch our dog super last minute. Priscilla was more than accommodating with our request! Her dog Yaya was super sweet too, as our pup can be leery of other dogs. She was playful and excited to see him so I think that helped bring his guard down.

Would definitely use her and her roommates services again! Thanks girls!!
Priscilla and the ladies were fabulous!!!! They have a very welcoming home for my little dog. These ladies are so dependable and responsible, and it is very obvious how much they love dogs. I wasn't expecting it, but they sent pictures of my dog every day! :) In addition to this, they bathed him so that he would be spotless on his way back home. I will definitely recommend them in future to all my friends and family, and I won't hesitate to contact them the next time I need lodging for my Max.
Thanks, ladies!!!!
