About Anna

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello my name is Anna I work from home and share my house with teenage daughter who also loves fur babies. Every dog that comes here becomes part of our family/pack. My goal is to keep all dogs safe and happy.
We have secured fence, gate and front door area, large doggy door, doggy splash pool, anytime is a play time :) Dogs allowed on furniture, my guest room is always available for older dogs or dogs that need a quiet time or just want to take nap alone.
Every dog eats separately from others, we have 30 minutes walks in the evening, personal attention, 24/7 supervision.
I accept dogs any size and breed but we have to meet -n-greet first all the dogs must be friendly.

Wonderful experience! It was the first time we sent our dog to Anna's place and we are very happy about this. Anna was so insightful about the personality of our dog and treated him as her own. We loved the daily photo and video update.
Once again, Anna took care of my two dogs while I took a day trip to visit my son and his family. My 'boys' were excited to see Anna and her other guests. I cannot express how happy I am to have found Anna and Dog VaCay. I never worry about my dogs because Anna loves animals and they know it. Thank you Anna. My 'boys' and I love you.

Wonderful experience. Anna was great and I have only used her and will continue to do so as long as I live in Houston!
Anna is awesome with her dogs. She sent photos and videos update everyday while Bailey was in her care. She cares Bailey as her own. This was Bailey's second summer vacation in Anna's place. She is coming home happy and well fed. Thank you so much Anna. Bailey will be back soon for sure.

Cocoa is always happy with Anna!
Great service as always!
Anna treated our doggies as their own. She was just awesome! Even though they were visiting for the first time, they got along with her and the other doggies very quickly. Anna kept us up to date with videos, pictures and text messages.
Additionally, she has got her house prepared to host the dogs in perfect hygienic and safe conditions. We certainly will come back whenever we will need somebody to take good care of our pets! Thank you Anna!

Anna was very attentive with my little pups. Anna sent me multiple pictures and texts, it made feel so much better. My pups were not eating the first day and she kept me updated on their status. Anna really cares about her dog boarders
Lucky absolutely loves her visits to Anna.
Anna is amazing!!! Ruxen had an awesome time and I loved getting updates and pictures while I was on vacation.
Anna was great! She was awesome about sending pics and videos the whole weekend we were out of town. She has a true passion and care for all dogs.
Anna, does a very good job with dogs, she is very personal with each do... I am grateful we met her... Thank you Anna
Anna has been great with Rogue. He loves his "vacay" time with her! He gets to go on daily walks and has other dogs to play with. She's also been very good at handling any "disputes" between the dogs staying there, keeping them separated if necessary.

Ana is a great dog sitter. Every time she takes care of my dog I'm sure she is in good hands. Ana always keeps us informed with everything that is happening with our with baby with pictures and videos. It is also very flexible in accommodating your schedule.

Gus had a wonderful stay with Anna and is ready to go back ! He ate better for her than for me and you could tell he had gotten a lot of walks and attention. We look forward to leaving him with her again when his usual sitter is not available ! Thanks Anna !

This is my second time using Anna. She and her daughter are so great with my over sized german shepherd. He's just a big baby and they give him so much love that he doesn't realize he misses me until I pick him up! The frequent pictures and videos she sends throughout the day puts my mind at ease and allows me to enjoy my vacation. :)

This is our fifth stay with Ana. My dogs just love her. They wag their tail when they see her. She sends so many pics that you don't even miss your dogs. It's so nice to see them so happy. I can't imagine leaving my two babies with anyone else
Like every time Anna send us a lot of pictures, videos and Sammy was very happy to come back to Anna ´s home.
Our Goldie loves staying at Anna's. Our pet is a 6 month old sporty dog and she has plenty of positive energy. Anna knew perfectly how to attend to her needs an accommodate a great doggie environment with our dog and her other guests. Anna is like a dog whisper.

This was our second time with Anna. She took care of Sammy for 2 long weeks.
She's very nice and she is passionate about dogs.
She was excellent, we received a lot of news and pictures every day .
My dog was happy, playing with other dogs and even made a best friend !
She came back quiet and happy ;-)
So thanks a lot Anna and next time we'll definitively
ask Anna again to keep our dog !

Mihik absolutely loved being at Anna's. Anna was very indulgent with Mihik, giving him his own space and letting him sleep in her bed when he wanted to. Anna sent lots of pictures and videos to keep me abreast of Mihik's wellbeing and daily doings. He looked healthy and happy when I picked him up after a month's stay. I am so glad to have found Anna - now I don't have to worry about Mihik when I have to go anywhere without him.

My two dogs have visited in Anna's home several times since 2013. They have stayed for several days at a time as well as a few times of just daycare. My dogs love Anna and her daughter. Because Anna's care is much like my own, my dogs love to visit in her home. Anna sends pictures during the day of how and what the dogs are doing. Anna is flexible as far as drop-off and pick-up times. Within minutes of arriving at her home. my dogs happily settle into Anna's routine. Anna loves every dog she keeps and they love her back. I hope Anna is always available when I need a second home for my fur babies. Over the years I have used DogVacay, I have been offered several discounts and free stays. It just don't get much better.

Anna was wonderful! She kept us posted on how our furry guy was doing the whole time we were gone. She is a great caretaker!
Anna was absolutely wonderful with our new dog that was 4 months old. Anna was so insightful about the personality of our dog and provided our dog with a true doggy vacay. We loved the daily photos and updates. Anna's house is set up so that our dog could get the most out of each day, with the plastic kid pools and comfortable places to relax. Thank you Anna!

Anna was wonderful! She treated my big shepherd Buck as if he were her own. I too am a Dogvacay host so I have pretty high expectations and Anna exceeded them! She was generous with the text and photo updates which put my mind at ease. I don't travel much but when I do I will trust my dog in her care every time!

Anna is the best! She takes good care of Cocoa and she is always happy when she gets back home.
Anna is just perfect ;-), she gave me news, photos and videos every day and my dog sammy came back home calm. Anna just loves dogs and took care of sammy like her dog ! i will certainly contact her again ;-)
Aiden had a wonderful time with Anna. She is very sweet and caring. I would get daily photos or videos of Aiden. She would also treat Aiden as her own. Couldn't ask for for better person to take of my pup.
I contacted 2 hosts in hopes of finding a place for my dogs while on a business trip.

Anna was quick to answer and scheduled a meet and greet. The other host contacted me 6 days later with no apologies or reasons... Why she took so long to and answer? Never said anything.
There is no way I would trust her with my dogs! Thankfully Anna was the perfect choice all along.

Anna definitely loves dogs as much as the dog owners do. She does an excellent job, keeping you up to date and informed on the well being of your pets.

Anna will be the person I always choose to look after my dogs.

Thank you Anna.

Ana is AWSOME!! This was my first time leaving my little guy with a stranger, but Ana treats my dog like family. My dog loves to stay with her and also my baby found a girlfriend (Ana's dog :) Julia). She also send me a lot of Pictures and videos every day and kept me constantly informed on his day. Ana stay at home all the time and she is a wonderful dog lover so zeus got the attention that I would give him.
Thanks Ana!!

Wow, Anna was the best.. My booking was pretty last minute and the first of which I have left my teenage pup with anyone other than family. She was absolutely amazing, not only was she informative and made Benjamin immediately feel like he was one of the family but she text me pictures a couple of times each day to put my mind at ease, he was having so much fun with the other dogs (large and small all of which were quite mellow and appeared to be at home in their environment). Definitely will be booking you for future stays.. You rock!!!!

Anna is a fabulous, loving DogVacay host. This was my two dog's third stay with Anna. As usual, when we arrived at her home, my outgoing dog began immediately to romp around, go out and in the doggie door and make himself at home. As usual also, my more reserved and older dog wanted to be cuddled as he knew I would be leaving. Anna picked him up and he was happy to be in her arms. Anna's daughter also pampers her furry guests so my dogs love her, too. My trip this time was just a day trip but I still received pictures and the dogs were walked on leashes just as though they were there for overnight. Anna is the best. Her home is set up for dogs. She even installed a big gate in her entrance-way so dogs have no chance to escape when the front door is opened. Of course, I will choose Anna and will book as far in advance as possible because she is usually booked weeks in advance.

Anna was wonderful with buddy. Very flexible and got me in last minute. We will definitely be seeing her again!
This was our second time leaving Bear with Anna. She's a great pack leader and takes very good care of the dogs. She took our reservation at the last minute which saved us a lot of headache! Bear is home now, passed out on his bed from pure exhaustion!

Anna was fantastic with Vader. The pictures and videos assured me he was being well taken care of.
We've used Anna several times as caretaker for our dogs while we're away on vacation.. Anna has a special gift with dogs and treats them as though they really matter! She is able to adjust her reactions to the dogs based on their unique "personalities". One of our dogs, Cocoa, is very shy and timid and Anna is wonderful with her. By the end of her stay, Cocoa was best buddies with Anna.

Our bigger dog Ginger just loves Anna and her daughter. For Ginger, going to Anna's really is like a home away from home!

Anna's house is geared around the dogs comfort. She even let our little Cocoa sleep under her bed. She cooks for the dogs too! Once she made a big Chicken "soup" for our dogs to enjoy while we were away. And she sends lots of pictures and video so that you can stay in touch with your dogs while you're away. She is quick to respond if you text or call as well.

Our family (and dogs) would recommend Anna to anyone who wants a loving caretaker for their dogs while they're away. She is just the best. I would never take our dogs to a kennel again!

This is my dogs second DogVacay visit with Anna. Just like before, my dogs were so happy with Anna. They seemed to remember their previous visit ( just about one year ago). Anna loves her guests that come to her from DogVacay. She sends me pictures of my dogs at play and while they are out for a walk. When I go to get them they are still playing and obviously very happy. We love Anna and will certainly ask for her every time we need to leave the dogs.

Anna was awesome as usual! Benjy and I love her. She's like his home away from home.
Anna is amazing! She's awesome with the dogs. I feel very comfortable leaving my Benjy with her. She sends several updates and takes very good care of the animals.
Anna was great. Our two boys had a great time with her. She sent a lot of pictures and videos to let me know they were good. She took them for walks every day and had plenty of toys to play with at home.
Anna was wonderful with Jake. She sent us pictures and updates of him which is always really nice.
Anna did a wonderful job! I am always nervous to leave my dog behind when I travel, but Anna sent lots of daily pictures and updates on how she was doing. I will definitely book with her again!
She took great care of my two boys and send pics and video of them throughout their stay. Made me able to relax and know they were in good hands!
Anna was wonderful with Bear. This was his first time away from home since we rescued him 8 months ago. He was happy and healthy when we picked him up.
this is our second time leaving our puppy with Anna and she is the best. Khaleesi likes her a lot, gets very excited as soon as we arrive to her house and seems to be very happy in all the pictures and videos Anna sends us. She walks them every single day and feeds them individually.
We feel very comfortable leaving Khaleesi with Anna and will not dare leave her with anyone else.
Thanks Anna!!

Anna was amazing with both of our dogs! She sent pictures and videos along with updates on how they were doing. They are extremely tired now and that's hard to do with our puppy. We will be using her anytime we go out of town again!
Awesome as always!! Sends lots of pics and videos of your pet having a good time.
This is the second time Anna has watched Remy and the first for our new dog Kimber. As usual, Anna went above and beyond! I absolutely recommend her!
Anna is phenomenal. No one is more of a dog lover! I absolutely recommend her!
Ana is great with dogs I was afraid to leave my baby boy with anyone. She sent me pics of him and kept in contact with me. When my baby all of a sudden got scared and didn't want anyone close to him she managed to keep him away from all the others. Thank you Ana.

Wonderful! I will always leave my dog with Anna when I vacation.
Anna is wonderful. She has a huge bed/room for the dogs to sleep in. She has a spacious backyard for the dogs to play and a big living room for them to cool down. She takes them on plenty of walks and sends text and photo messages to update you on how your pup is doing. I will be using her every time I go out of town. Wonderful service and great price.

Anna is awesome !
We are so lucky to have someone like her take care of our Aaliya while we are away. Anna communicates daily and sends pictures and videos regularly.
Aaliya loves being with Anna and playing/going on walks with her other canine friends :) !

As we expected Ana took amazing care of our little princess. Despite the fact that we traveled out of the country she maintained her communications via email.
Our English Bulldog Harley had great stay at Anna's. She has a deep passion for caring for animals and we knew Harley was in good hands for the week long stay. She is great about keeping you updated with pictures, video's and text messages. Her home and fenced in backyard allows the dogs to move about as they choose and need. You can leave your dog with Anna knowing he or she is being well cared for. I highly recommend Anna for your DogVacay needs.

There were to many dogs she was caring for at one time.
Put your worries to rest. She loooooves dogs and she will treat your baby as if it was her own. She sent us so many pictures and videos. We were so happy to see her playing and wagging her tail. She walked her every day and feeds each dog separately. Honestly, no one does that. Those kennel boarding places aka doggie prisons, charge 45 dollars and if you want your dog to play would be another 30 dollars. Additional 25 bucks for temperament test. NO REALLY. Do your dog a huge favor and let them get all the love and attention they deserve with anna and her young beautiful daughter who is mature well beyond her years that also helps and plays with all the doggies.

She is way too good with Jacob! She sent pics of him daily and always told us how he was. She really spend time him and made dogs feel like they are at home. We are looking forward to reserve with her for our next trip.
This was our first experience with DogVacay.com and we couldn't have asked for a better sitter. Ana kept in touch with us daily with text messages, photos and even videos. She loved our little girl as she was her own and it made our trip that much more enjoyable knowing our baby was in the best hands. We intend to continue to use Ana for ALL our future dog sitting needs.

Another great stay for Wolfey. Came home exhausted but could tell he had a BLAST.
Fast response, wonderful person. Excellent dog sitter. Very knowledgeable With puppy's.. I will continue to use her service..
This was our second time using Anna! She is a FIRST rate dog sitter. She knows dogs very well and accommodates them beautifully. About to make yet another reservation with her. I would recommend Anna a thousand times over!
Anna was great, beyond great with Jacob. She sent pictures and/or video of him daily. Her house has a lot of space for the dogs, and she also get them out to walk. I do know my dog and I can tell, he was really happy with her and the other dogs she was taking care of. I already booked to leave him with her during my next vacations! I do recommend her.

Anna was great with Cocoa! Also, my family appreciates her flexibility for drop off and pick up hours. Cocoa was very happy when we picked her up. Thanks!
Anna was great with my dog Hobbes. He was initially scared when we walked in due to a few large overly-excited dogs that were pouncing on him - he's only 25lbs. But she introduced them slowly and they became fast friends. She sent me TONS of pics of him, which made me feel at ease about leaving him. She fed him multiple times because Hobbes is a picky eater, which I appreciated. She also took him out running! Overall, I was very happy with her facilities, which looked clean and spacious, and she really seems to know and care about dogs.

Anna is a natural with dogs, I could tell right away that my great dane was in good hands. Will definitely use Anna again and also recommend to friends / family.
Anna was great with Lily. She even sent us pictures of Lily playing with the other dogs and pictures of Lily going on walks. We plan to book with her again. Lily was well taken care of and throughly enjoyed all the playtime.
Anna was a great sitter. She is very calm and loving of the dogs. She took great care of my Benjy. She sent updates daily and sometimes several times a day. I will definitely be using her again.
Anna is the best. Our Boss loved her and came home happy and looking great. He got good care and was pampered by sleep on a "people bed" twin mattress! She took good care of us too. She sent us lots of pictures so we knew what Boss was doing while we gone. We will definitely be asking Anna to have Boss for another "dog vacay" in the future.

We were in need of a dog sitter kind of last minute and after reviewing Anna's profile and other ratings, we were very pleased and contacted Anna and her reply time was within 30 minutes and welcomed us!!! Dropped our boy off and received pictures of him playing with his new dog-mates and he was happy when we picked him up! Anna has a great spirit and a huge heart for dogs! She lets us know how his day was with pictures and or stories like who he played with. She is a great dog sitter and I would recommend her to other pet parents!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR CARE AND LOVE FOR OUR FOUR LEGGED SON, Roan'an :)

Anna was spectacular!! She truly loves what she does, and the attention and affection she showed my boys is evident. My boys had a wonderful time. I got pictures often so I could see they had adjusted well and were getting along great with other pups, and I knew I didn't have to worry, they were clearly in good hands. You can rest assured, this is a great vacation spot for dogs!

M dog is 5 and has never been boarded so I was very nervous about leaving her for 4 nights! I saw Annas reviews and instantly felt better. She was very responsive whenever I wanted pictures of pearl. Every morning and evening she would send 5 or so pics of her smiling and having a fun time with the other dogs. She accommodated her needs of needing to be fed in a separate room and allowed me to bring her bed so she would feel more at home (even though Im sure she took advantage of being able to get up on the couch. Would definitely use her again!

Anna was GREAT. We picked up a happy pooch tonight. Her photos all week long were very comforting to know our doggie was well taken care of. Anna was very accommodating and professional. We will use her again for our next trip out of town.
Anna was fantastic! This was our first time using PetVacay ad we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. Anna kept us updated with photos and our Sadie seemed to be having a great time. Anna lives so close to us so we will definitely be using her again.

Anna took great care of my dog. She kept me posted with many photos.
AWESOME!!! She's the best!! Loving and caring. Sends videos and pictures of your pet while your away. Book her now she is awesome and you will feel the love for your pet as soon as you walk in her door.
Anna is awesome ! She is such a dog lover which I figured the moment I met her. My dog had an awesome time with her. Anna would send us pictures everyday & keep us informed on her activities & well being . I am definitely keeping my dog with her every time we need a sitter or going out of town. Thanks a lot Anna !

Pablo and I are so fortunate that we have found Anna A. It truly is a vacation for my best friend. Anna has no cages. She is always looking in the best interest of the dogs.
The main reason I like Anna is that any other boarding place I have used puts your dog in a cage and lets them out a couple times a day at best then back in the cage. Kinda sounds like dog prison not dog boarding. On the other hand Anna has no use nor believes in cages. It truly is a vacation and great socialization for my dog. He made great friends and was in great spirits when I picked him up.
I can only be so lucky if I need to travel without my buddy and Anna A. is willing to except my best friend.
If any one reading this has the opportunity to drop their companion off with Anna then you can rest assured they are in the best and most loving hands possible.
Not to mention very reasonable rates as well!
Thank you Anna once again couldn't be happier!
Pablo & Ben

Anna is very good with dogs, she takes good care of them and emails pictures, she is always available if you have questions or want to check in on your pet.
Anna provided wonderful care for my dog. Updates and pictures are appreciated and helped my son and I as we started missing our Lilly. Anna is responsive to inquiries and made me feel very comfortable.
Anna is a fantastic pack leader. I cannot say enough good things about my spoiled dogs' vacation spent with Anna. This was a first time they had stayed with someone other than a known relative. My dogs began playing with Anna's dogs the moment we arrived. I was very happy to see them learn to be social because they normally do not have the chance to play with other dogs. Anna spoiled my dogs so much. They were obviously well cared for while I was gone. The pictures and updates I received each day were so comforting for me. I was very comfortable leaving them with her and will definitely choose Anna if I have another opportunity.

Anna is a true dog lover! She understands the behavior of them and is so accommodating to their needs. Our dog Ginger loved her stay with Anna and really enjoyed lounging on her own private twin bed! Anna was very responsive when I texted and sent the most wonderful pictures of Ginger. Her attentiveness to Ginger made me know for certain that I will never use a kennel again. Thanks so much Anna for giving us peace of mind while we were away!

Thank you Anna for taking good care of my dogs Rusty and Daisy. My husband and I really enjoyed the photos we recieved while away. Christy
Anna was wonderful!!! I look forward to working with her again.
I felt very comfortable leaving our dog with Anna overnight. She seemed very patient and knowledgeable about dog behavior. I also appreciated her flexibility in pickup and drop off timing. I would definitely use her again.
Ana was great!
We had never left our dog anywhere, so I was very nervous! Watching the way Anna introduced each dog to mine put me at ease, and within minutes they were all running around together:) she really knows how to handle all the different behaviors and personalities of the dogs! I would definitely leave our "Paisley" there again!

Anna was the perfect host for our lab mix. Our lab had plenty of dog friends to play with. He got to go outside the doggie door and he got to go on walks.

Anna really is a great petsitter and we recommend her service. We will definitely be using her again for future petsitting needs.

Fantastic!! I needed a dog sitter from Friday to Sunday, set it up Thursday night and she responded the same night. She's very experienced, works from home. Fantastic dog sitter.
Very impressed with Anna A. Her entire house is dedicated to the dogs every need. She is very responsive and I know she cares for all dogs in general considering I believe all of her personal dogs were rescues.
She has no kennels so my dog was not locked up at all he had free rain of the house and was able to play with her dogs. So while I was out of town working my dog was on his own little vacation like a doggie resort.
So if you are looking for someone that really truly loves dogs then Anna is your women. Very reasonable price. Almost a steel for the dog owner. The level of care provided was well worth every penny.
Very Happy and I know my dog Pablo was well cared for. I know the next time I go out of town Anna would be my first choice and I wouldn't have any hesitation recommending her at all. Five out of Five stars for Anna
Thank you!

Our 60 pound goldendoodle was safe and well taken care of by Anna.
