About Vicky

Hi! My husband and I are both dog lovers, living in a bright, open plan condo in Liberty Village, with lots of space for dogs to run and play.

We believe that your dog should have as enjoyable a vacation as you, so we let them explore a variety of places each day. Your dog will get to enjoy Coronation Park, Garrison Common, High Park, Woodbine Beach/Ashbridges Bay Park, Sunnyside Beach, Trinity Bellwoods Park, and even Toronto Islands.

I work from home so your dog will be able to roam free (day and night), be given lots of attention, and go outside often, as well as enjoying at least 2 walks and lots of bathroom breaks per day. I'm professional and friendly, and love all animals - dogs in particular!

My husband and I have grown up with dogs, and have owned 3 over the years. We love having them around, and have lots of experience with hosting dogs of different breeds and personalities.

We will provide a loving, fun, stimulating, and relaxed atmosphere for your dog to enjoy while they stay here, and will treat them as our own. We look forward to meeting you and your furry friend soon!

*Drop off and pick up, and bathing are also available for an additional fee*

Vicky did a great job managing my dog, and took her on some great day trips while I was away! I really appreciated the daily photos, they gave me a lot of comfort that my dog was in good hands and was really enjoying herself. I'll definitely be using Vicky's services again!
My Dogs vacation with Vicky was wonderful. She treated him like he was her own dog. She sent us updates and pictures everyday of their walks and fun activities. I am so thankful that we choose a DogVacay with Vicky and wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Thanks so much Vicky for taking such great care of our doggy.
What can I say, Vicky and her hubby were amazing! So much so that my doggies missed them when we got them back!! hehe

We've never left our dogs with unfamiliar faces or even public kennels before, so we were a little uneasy leaving them for a full week at first, but when I was getting daily updates from Vicky it made me feel more comfortable and at ease knowing my babies were being taken care of and that they were thoroughly enjoying themselves!

The transaction from beginning to end was smooth, straight forward, and simple! Vicky and her husband are very sweet, professional and very accommodating and they sent us multiple photos of our munchkins on a daily basis while we were away! I loved that!

I can't thank them enough for taking care of Cosmo and Stella during our vacation and making them feel so comfortable, at home and loved! My doggies are very needy for attention and require constant interaction with their caretaker, I truly believe that they received just that!!!

I would 100% leave my babies with Vicky again and would highly recommend her services!
Vicky was great - Super friendly. My dog loved his visit with her.
As always Vicky was great. My dog got to see more of the city than I have and I can tell she had a great time. So much so she's been sleeping since she got home! Can't say enough good things!
Vicky was such a great host for our little guy, we got photos everyday and we knew he was having an awesome vacation as well. Thank you so much, Vicky. Definitely he will have his next dogvacay with you again.
Very helpful as usual. This time Vicky looked after our dog for 6 days while we were out of town and she was kind enough to drop him at our place due to our late arrival when we came back. Superb, friendly and a great couple.. Thanks Vicky!
Vicky was the perfect host for us. I honestly couldn't have imagined a better arrangement. She took superb care of our dog.

The easiest way to illustrate the awesomeness of Vicky is to tell you a story. When we picked up Nugget (our dog), we forgot to get her harness. I texted Vicky and she quickly responded saying she could bring it over to our place. When my partner met her downstairs, she took Nugget with her. And Nugget wanted to go back with Vicky!!! Nugget was so excited to see Vicky and her husband that when she came back upstairs, she waited for them, crying by our door. I had to take her downstairs again to show that Vicky was gone.

I will definitely try to get Vicky to hang out with Nugget on our next trip. Such loving, caring dog sitting is hard to find.
Vicky and her husband took good care of our 4 year old golden retriever and we were very happy to have her host him with them, They were nice to accommodate us at the last minute and took him early in the morning before our flight. We were also provided pics of his daily walks in the various walks around the neighbourhood. Would not hesitate to recommend or board Caesar with Vicky again
We had to extend our dogs stay for another week Vicky and her mother in law took the absolute care anyone would ask for while away, when we went to pick up Hollywood they were even kind enough to offer us a ride to the station thank u Vicky & family xx
Vicky is AMAZING .. We had a family emergency and had to leave the country , she responded to us in less than 2 hours to board our boy(Hollywood) . She kept sending us updates every day more than once, one of the few time that we were relaxed and comfortable that Hollywood is happy , we even had to extend our stay and she accepted although they were flying, she was more than helpful to keep him at her mother in law . We will always choose Vicky every time we need to board our dog.
Vicky and her husband were great with our 2 Golden Retrievers. If you are looking for a responsible, understanding, and active couple to watch your dog(s) then I would definitely recommend them (she even kept us up to date about our dogs and posted 2 photos of them each day!).

This was our first time using Dogvacay, and believe we've found the people who we can trust to take good care of our babies when we're gone. Definitely would contact them again to watch our dogs.
Vicky was awesome! Left my pooch with her and her husband for over a week, and got multiple pictures a day. They took her everywhere, and I can tell she had a blast. Communication overall was top-notch, and they were very flexible on pick-up and drop-off. Would highly recommend!
