About Vanessa

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello pet parents! What can I say? I love animals, all of them, big and small. I was born an animal lover and have passed this love to my daughters. I feel it's our duty and a privilege to love and protect them since they are so innocent and cannot speak for themselves. I made the leap out of a high stress career to do something I know I love and am passionate about. This love is why so many friends family and referrals have entrusted their babies to me. Someone mentioned making it a career, and here I am! I also use my experience as a Licensed Massage Therapist to soothe my guests with touch and soft music. I look forward to the privilege of caring for and spoiling your babies. I hope to be their home away from home.

I also offer daycare, dog walking, bathing and pickup/drop off from day care and boarding for reasonable fees. Thank you for taking the time to meet me and I hope to host your baby soon!

*Unfortunately, due to several no calls/no shows, my refund policy stands. Cancellation prior to 4 days out full refund, anytime within the 4 days only 50%. No exceptions. Each Boarding night covers 24 hrs from drop off. I plan my schedule and other reservations around eachother and late pickups affect that. I will try to work with you, but without prior arrangements/approval for late pickup, you will be charged for an additional day.

Vanessa and her family made our two dogs feel part of the family. She was fanstastic providing videos and pictures of our happy pups throughout the day. Her home will definitely be our dogs home away from home and when we finally arrived to pick them up they just didn't want to go from all the fun with her girls.

Vanessa is exactly what I hoped for in a dog sitter.
Her home is extremely clean (which is difficult in this business), she is extremely warm and caring, she loves dog sitting for animals and she made our Zulu feel like part of the family. She has a large back yard with plenty of room for her "guests" to roam and play.She e-mailed us photos and videos of Zulu several times. We were afraid that Zulu would not want to come home.

Vanessa is our answer for all our dog sitting needs.
We are so grateful that we found her!!!!
