About Sarah

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Active and friendly household with three small children and a rarely seen (by guests) cat. Our beautiful dog Ginger died in October 2015. While we no longer have a host pup, we are appreciating the time guest dogs spend with us even more! We have started fostering rescue pups in 2016. In advance of any stay, you will be invited to meet any fosters that will be in the home for your dog's stay. Fully 4'-fenced yard and Tookany Creek trails at the end of the street make indoor/outdoor days the usual. Space for quiet and for frolicking means any pup will be at ease in our home!

Dog Guests must be comfortable with small children and their toys. We have a cat, but she typically decides to hang out in a separate area.

I highly recommend Sarah. She created a home away from home for our two dogs, and they fit right in with her family. Sarah is very easy to deal with, and communicated regularly with photos and updates. It was a seamless experience, we will use her services again. Thanks!
This is the second time Ava has stayed with Sarah and her family. Ava is a rescue and often becomes quickly nervous. Well, when Ava saw we had pulled up at Sarah's house, she began wagging her tail and pulled me to the front door! Actually, there is such a homey vibe at Sarah's that I wouldn't mind spending the day there myself :)
Thank-you, Sarah and family!
We couldn't have asked for a better home to leave our 6-month-old puppy Toby for 5 days over Thanksgiving. Sarah and her family were warm and easy-going; she sent frequent updates, including photos and video; was quick to respond to text messages while we were away; and welcomed info from us about our puppy's routine at home (where he slept, what he liked and didn't like, etc). She clearly loves dogs and loves getting to know them as individuals, and even when they're there for a short time they become an integral part of the household. We will definitely be back!
Our dog, Polo, was happy and well taken care of during our entire time away on vacation. We were very comfortable leaving him in Sarah L.'s care. The pictures she sent us proved that he had a great time while staying there. We would definitely use her services again!!! 2 thumbs (and 4 paws) up!!!
Sarah and her family were great. It was clear from the meet and greet that she understands dogs and she had a plan for how to handle my shy tiny old lady with her sweet friendly dog and the big rambunctious puppy she was also caring for. She stayed in contact and sent pictures to show me that Breezy was comfortable There was even a bonus video. ??.
We had Sarah watch our 4 month old puppy and were very happy with the experience! Leaving a pup so young was difficult but Sarah and her family were amazing with Olive. She had a great time and Sarah's frequent text updates, pictures and video let us relax and enjoy our vacation, knowing that Olive was in excellent hands. Would definitely recommend Sarah to anyone looking for a loving pet sitter!
Our dog did not want to leave Sarah's house. I can't blame her, she got walked, went to dog park, and had playmates. Sarah's great.
Sarah and family were terrific. We were concerned about leaving Zoey for so long but they gave her much love and kept her busy so she hardly seemed to notice. Came home happy and healthy. Definitely on my list of top sitters. Also, fantastic pics!
Sarah and her family are the best! Duke gets lots of love and exercise when he is there. I love the pics she sends of Duke's day.
There is a great warmth in this home that Zoey picked up on immediately. She was happy to be there and in a great mood when she came home. Even with a couple of foster dogs in the house, Sarah was very much in control. She is very communicative and let us know how Zoey was doing with pictures even for a short overnight. Will definitely be back.
Every stay with Sarah and her family is the best. She represents your brand well - great person, great family, great with your dog, a pleasure to do business dog's second mom/home now ;)
Robb was made to feel at home and had a wonderful time playing with the other dogs. We would go back to this doggie vacation in a heartbeat.
Sarah has become our first choice for care for our dog! She has become our dogs second mama:) I'm so grateful to find her and appreciate her willingness, kindness and feedback.
Very grateful for finding Sarah and her family on Dog Vacay. Sarah was very invested in making sure our pup had a stress free and fun/relaxing experience. She did the same thing on our daycare trial day. This past weekend was our first experience with overnight care with Sarah. She sent pictures and text updates on a regular basis helping me to feel good/relaxed as my pup settled into her new environment/played with her children , sweet Ginger, as well as sleeping in a new, unfamiliar setting. Sarah pays attention to detail and that allowed me to enjoy my vacation away from my baby girl. I now feel confident and comfortable in leaving my pup with Sarah and her family anytime. We are now devoted repeat clients for sure !
Sarah took great care of Bailey and posted great pictures for us while we were away.
What a great experience we had today with our dog spending the day with Sarah and her family. Such a nice environment with a calm, yet fun loving and sometimes energetic atmosphere with her children ( who I may have fallen in love with at first sight ;) ) and the beautiful resident fur baby Ginger. Sarah is a sweetheart and makes you/your pup feel right at home as if you are part of their family. I would highly recommend having Sarah care for your dog. I trust her and her care of my dog and today was only our first visit. We will be looking to have our dog come back for daycare and will be trying an overnight soon. 5 STARS !! Thank you Sarah for providing a great place to leave our pup and know she is safe, loved, and in great hands.......
I would highly recommend Sarah! This was my first experience using this service and it was a pleasant one.We had a meet and greet with the family to see how Cindy (my dog) would behave around smaller children and the family's dog Ginger (who is a love). The children were excited to meet Cindy as well. Sarah was in touch with me while I was away and sent pictures of Cindy. She was very attentive to Cindy which helped eliminate my separation anxiety as well. A nice perk was the large back yard where Cindy could go out and play. Thank you Sarah for being patient with Cindy's accident.
Cooper had a great time with Sarah and her family. We felt that we were leaving him in very good hands, and Sarah only reaffirmed that during Cooper's stay. We received daily updates and pictures from Sarah, easily communicating through the DogVacay app on our end. We thank Sarah and her family for allowing Cooper to stay, play and expend all of his puppy energy while we were away.
Sarah was a perfect host for our 9 month old Havanese puppy! Her home is so welcoming and comfortable. He felt instantly comfortable and enjoyed having Ginger as his companion. Sarah sent updates throughout the day to help us feel more comfortable, as it was our first time using DogVacay. She also gave us some dog advice for our puppy since we're first time dog owners. Thank you Sarah and family:)
Sarah was wonderful!! Our puppy Eleven had a great time playing with the two dogs in the house and Sarah was pleasant to work with.
We made our reservation pn short notice for Christmas Eve and Sarah accommodated us. During the day, we told Sarah that we would be an hour late picking up the dog and she was totally flexible.

Eleven made some new friends and we got a dependable and professional dog sitter out of the deal.

We are so happy! Thank you Sarah!
Sarah is the best. My dog loves to visit her, and I am so happy to have a wonderful place to be safe and comfortable.
Sarah is the best. We lost power due to a snow storm and could not find lodging that would allow our dog Chester to stay with us, so we contacted Sarah to see if she would board Chester until our power returned. She took him right away. She did not hesitate to understand our need for a safe and warm environment for Chester. He was welcome as if he was an old friend. Thank you Sarah for always going over and above what is expected.
Murphie had a great time at Sarah's house, we can tell by how sleepy he is when we get him home. Exhaustion is a good thing for a lab! Sarah included Murphie in her family's Christmas festivities - something not every dog sitter is willing to do. We so appreciated her being there for us so we could visit our sons in Colorado.

Chester had such a great time that I did not think he wanted to come back home. This is a great home away from home for Chester. Would recommend Sarah as the best person to take care of your beloved pet.
This is my first time boarding my new family Dog Chester. We decided not to use a traditional boarding facility and try a more welcoming environment were he could be with other dogs and allowed more movement and interaction. I am so happy that we chose Sarah L. through Dogvacay. She and her family was fantastic host to Chester. She kept me up to date on his mood, his playtime and his sleeping. She welcomed him into her home and he was happy and well taken care of. I was feeling as if Chester may not want to come back home after spending time with here. But I was pleasantly surprised with the greeting we received from Chester, he was happy to see us and sad to leave Sarah's home at the same time. I am looking forward to our next trip away from home so that Chester can visit with Sarah again.
Turbo had a great time with Sarah and her family. They have a big back yard and lots of company between Ginger and the boys. I highly recommend her services.
Sarah did a wonderful job pet sitting our 5 1/2 month old boxer puppy. She welcomed our pup into their home and made her as if she was one of her own. She actively sent us picture messages of our puppy to update us about her each day. She also has a great pet friendly backyard that is perfect for any dog to run around in. If you choose Sarah as your pet sitter, you can assure that your dog, whether young or old, will be in good hands!
Sarah and her family were so hospitable to our Murphie. He had a wonderful time while he was at her house - we can tell by how exhausted he was when we picked him up. We will definitely use Sarah and DogVacay again.
We had a great first experience using DogVacay with Sarah and her family! A very friendly, family household. It felt great knowing Bella was around caring people day and night while we were away. Sarah sent us photos of Bella which was really awesome! Will definitely use her service again.
Thanks so much to Sarah and her family for a great boarding experience. She keeps a great home with nice backyard and plenty of room to play, which Roscoe did! We were so happy to be able to use your service and hope to see you again!
Wow, what a find!! Sarah and her family took excellent care of our dog. They keep a tidy non-smoking home and have a nice back yard for your dog to run around. Our dog had a very smooth transition to their home life. I am very happy to have found this pooch-loving family!
