About Cathy and Sean

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We only watch dogs 25# or less in our home and dogs over 25#, large packs, cats and birds in your home. We have a large, fenced-in backyard and a doggie-door. If your dog is not doggie-door experienced, don't worry. Our dogs are great teachers. We prefer not to have to house-train a puppy, so keep that in mind when you consider hiring us.

My husband and I have five of our own dogs (all small). One is now "special-needs" so we prefer to screen pets coming into our home by requiring a Meet-N-Greet.

We are absolutely head-over-heels in love with pets and come with 30+ years of pet sitting experience. You can feel comfortable leaving your pet(s) in our care while you are away and know that they will be loved like our own.

I can go to your home and watch your pet(s) while my husband is watching dogs at our home. So, if our calendar is full, it would be worth your while to ask about availability anyway. We will consider last-minute reservations so please send us a general inquiry and let us know what type of pet(s) you have and how long you need us to pet sit. It's always possible that we can tweak our schedule.

We are independently insured, bonded and licensed.

If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Cathy is amazing at what she does! I had to board my Maltese mix dog Christmas night with her and it was the best experience! Cathy greeted us outside and made Sophie feel right at home immediately. I could tell my dog felt comfortable in her arms from the moment I handed her Sophie. She also explained to me how she was going to introduce her dogs to Sophie one by one outside in the back yard. This was a better experience than I could have ever hoped for! I will definitely be using her again!
I made this reservation for a friend's parents as they are not very computer literate. I'm sure the vacay went fine or else I'm sure I would have heard about it.
Thank you Cathy and Sean. I know Mollie had a great time and made a new friend. Thanks for the pictures and videos of Mollie. It was nice to know she was well taken care of and having a good time too!
Absolutely fabulous care of my little boy! His first time at 12 years old to stay somewhere that was not a family member. It was a week of "summer camp" with other four legged friends. He was pooped out when I got him home. Thank You Cathy & Sean.
Wonderful experience for Abby. Very pleased and the daily pictures and videos were a definite plus.
Cathy and Sean did a fantastic job. My puppy is a handful but they did a great job with her. I highly recommend them to anyone. I had a lot of questions and concerns but after meeting them, I was completely at ease leaving my baby.
Cathy and Sean are extremely friendly, helpful people and you can truly tell they are dog lovers. Their beautiful home and backyard are clearly setup to accommodate and make the pups feel at home. They took great care of our young (9mo old) SeaStar 1/2 pug 1/2 Chihuahua or as we lovingly refer to him as a Pugawawa :). The pictures and videos they texted during his stay were hilarious, but also put us at ease that our puppy was safe and having a great time. We most certainly would love to have our pup stay again with Cathy and Sean and their friendly dogs the next time we travel to their area.
Cathy and Sean were absolutely wonderful! Very friendly and great with our puppy! They were very patient and tentative with any and all of our puppy needs! They also often sent us pictures and videos while we were away to reassure us that our puppy was happy, healthy, and safe! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!
My dog ran to Cathy as soon as we exited our car. It's as if he knew her forever. We felt at ease as soon as we met her. Her husband Sean was also very nice. They even gave us a map to re route our way to New Orleans to avoid the one way road construction on the way there. What I like about all the hosts are they were all very quick in responding to our queries. I will definitely use DogVacay and will tell friends and families about it
Our dogs love it there!
Another great stay! They love it there!
I can't say enough good things about our Irish Sitters!! They're great and our pups love it there!!
VERY FRIENDLY!!! I don't have to say more...THEY'RE AWESOME!!! Thanks again for taking care of our little Bricey!!!
Mrs. And Mr.O are great! Our dog enjoyed his stay very much. They even taught him how to use a doggy door.
Cathy and Sean are simply amazing!!! Dixie and Rocco were more than well taken care of. This was a wonderful experience for us and our pets!! They're already scheduled for more visits in the future!!
Fantastic experience. Scooter comes home ready to rest from all of the attention and activities he had for his weeks stay. Excellent service.
The best! My pups loved it and seemed to enjoy their dogs. Friendly folks, felt like friends...Would 100% recommend!!
Cathy and Sean are the best! I've booked Rosco with them a number of times and they treat him like one of their own. Its tough when you have to go away and leave your dog, but its comforting to know he is in such great hands. I highly recommend Cathy and Sean to anyone who is looking for a sitter.
Cathy was amazing with our large pack and completely exceeded our expectations. She kept in constant contact with us, even sending pictures of our babies. We've already booked her to sit again!
Cathy and Sean took very good care of Roxy and Bailey exactly as if they were in there very own home. They interacted very well with their family pups and played so much to the point that they were so exhausted. They slept the majority of our return trip home and Roxy is still sleeping today. When we got there it seemed like they didn't want to come home and continued to play as if we were not there to pick them up. I would definitely make future reservations with them as we really liked Biloxi, Miss.! We didn't worry and felt comfortable leaving our lil' angels in their hands. I like to mention, that they are knowledgeable and informative with dogs. Certain things were pointed out that I never thought of but thanks' to them, I do now. Thank's again! Belinda, Rick, Roxy & Bailey
I would highly recommend Cathy and Sean for your next dogvacay. You can rest assure that your pet will be well taken care of while you are away. Cathy and Sean are very flexible as far as droping off and picking up your pet. They will work with you on what works best for you. My husband and I had to leave town for a week for a funeral that was out of state. We had a limited time to book a reservation with dogvacay but fortunately Cathy and Sean were very prompt at getting back to me and were very welcoming. I was not able to drop my Jack Russell Terrier, Buster off at their house but instead Cathy was more than happy to have him dropped off at her work. Like I said before, they are very flexible! Cathy and Sean are well experienced dog owners and dog sitters. You will be very impressed with them knowing that your pet will be welcomed as one of their own. Throughout your vacation, Cathy will send pictures of your pet showing how they are doing. It was nice to receive a text picture periodically of Buster! I would rate this host with 5 stars and I would definitely use them again for my dogvacay in the future!
Cathy and Sean are really great people!!
I'm so happy to find them. They made me feel so confident leaving my sweet Papo with them!
I enjoyed my vacation and Papo too!
They keep me informed, texting and sending me pictures!
They are the best!!!!
I definitively recommend them!!!
We were traveling through and wanted a place for our spoiled bichon while we celebrated our anniversary. We were concerned how our only child would get along with her brood but she did fine. Both Cathy and Sean made her feel completely at home we would highly recommend them. Thanks for a worry free evening.
The dogs had a vacation of their own, they loved it. Cathy was great and made me enjoy my vacation more by keeping me updated with pictures and messages.
Cathy and Sean were awesome! Northman had a great experience. He really didn't want to leave. I felt so comfortable leaving my puppy. I will def. be using Cathy and Sean again.
I was very impressed on the wonderful care that was given Piper on his stay with Mr. and Mrs. O'Neill. The level of cleanliness and overall care was outstanding. I will differently use this service again.
Lovely people and Snowy had a great time too!! Thank you so much!!
Cathy and Sean are amazing!!! My pup Wylder is an 8 month rotty retriever mix and though he is playful and sweet he is a handful. Cathy and Sean were not only pleasant to work with but took care of Wylder like he was their own! Wylder came back clean and worn out from having such a great time!! I hope Cathy and Sean will have Wylder back! I highly recommend Cathy and Sean to all dog owners for their dogs vacay!
