About Vicki

28 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! My name is Vicki, and my passion for animals has led me here! My home is located off of Alcoa/John Sevier Highway, which is about 15 minutes from the airport. I work during the day, but your beloved pets will have plenty of attention and love! I know how difficult it is to leave your fur-babies during the day or for a trip, so I enjoy updating the parents with photos or videos of their babies throughout their stay. I believe it is important to maintain a pet's routine; therefore, I am flexible and strive to accommodate each pet's needs as if he or she were at home.

I have previously cared for dogs for 28 years. I have experience with administering medications to pups, such as oral meds or injections. A previous dog was diagnosed with diabetes, so I learned how to administer shots and care for pets with seizures. This particular pup also became blind and deaf, so I gained experience with how to make life a little easier for him as well.

I also have two dogs of my own who love to play with other dogs! We love to get outside and walk or play. They both love to fetch! I have a very large fenced in yard that is perfect for dogs to stretch their legs and run.

I will be unable to accommodate pets that are not friendly with children/toddler, aggressive with other pets, not house trained, or any destructive behaviors.

Thank you for reviewing my profile, and I look forward to taking care of the special pet(s) in your life!

Vicki was great!!
As a recent transplant to Knoxville, I am without close friends or family to help with watching my dog when I leave town. It has limited to me where I have been able to go these past few months. I looked into the boarding options in the area, but ended up stressing out over leaving her with any of them.

Then, out of sheer luck, stumbled across this site. Being as Vicki is my first (and only) sitter, I was a bit apprehensive about leaving my dog with someone I didn't yet know! But as soon as I arrived to her location and met her, my mind was set at ease! I was actually able to get out of town and enjoy my trip without stressing about how my dog was doing.

I couldn't have been any happier with having chosen Vicki as my pup's sitter. I felt incredibly comfortable when first stepping in to meet her, and was shocked at just how beautiful her home was. She is a very warm, welcoming person and I trust her entirely with watching my dog.

Thank you, Vicki!

The dogs didn't want to leave!
Vicki was kind and helpful. Our dog was happy and well cared for.
Vicki is very sweet and Professional, We met Vicki before and We knew it She is for Abby , I recommend her 100% and I Will leave Abby again next week for 19 Days... Thank you Vicki:) :)
Highly recommend Vicki! I was in town visiting family in Knoxville for the weekend and needed someone last minute to watch my 3yr old Golden Retriever for the day. I contacted Vicki on Friday and she gladly fit my dog in for daycare the next day. She was sweet as can be and had a lovely space with a big yard for my pup. Thanks again, Vicki!
Vicki took great care of my elderly diabetic dog and my wild young dog!
Sassy said Vicki is great and she would stay there anytime.
Vicki kept me informed on how Sassy was doing with text and pictures. This was the first time I have used a sitter and I was nervous about leaving my dog with a stranger.
Vicki made me and Sassy feel good and I would recommend Vicki to anyone.
Vicki has been great for Barkley. Picking up when I am not available, keeping him late due to my work hours. Allowing him to play with other dogs while maintaining a consistent schedule for him.
Vicki was outstanding! 1st time using this system so I was a little nervous but Vicki was very welcoming to me and Nicko! I would highly recommend Vicki in fact I have booked for the next 3 weekend :)
Vicky was great! My dog was happy and played hard the whole time I was gone. Would definitely recommend.
Bodhi had a great time with Vicki, Harper, and Ellie! He was so tired after the weekend, we can only imagine the amount of playtime and fun they all had :) Would definitely recommend. When an unforeseen circumstance arose that delayed our pick-up time, Vicki was so kind and accomodating. Knowing that Bo was in such good hands made our weekend better, too!
Vicki was an incredible host to my dog Blue. I could tell that she loved on him a whole lot while we were away. He was very content when he came home. I would whole-heatedly recommend her to anyone needing a safe loving place for their dog.
