About Allison

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rover or Rosie will love hanging out while you're away on business or pleasure. 24/7 supervision can be provided, and each daycare day includes a minimum of (3) 20-minute walks per day. An extensive park visit is included in any vacay booked over a weekend, or for 4 or more days per visit. Rover or Rosie will have undivided attention and a safe environment while you're away doing your thing, and will never be left alone. Daily updates with pictures and video available upon request.

All dogs must be up to date on vaccinations, and non-aggressive. Dogs that exhibit aggression towards other dogs may be walked individually, but will NOT be accepted for sitting/boarding. NO breed or weight restrictions. Discounts may be available for multiple dog accommodations and lengthy visits.

I've been both a dog-walker and house-sitter for over 3 years for many clients and will gladly provide additional references upon request.

If you want to avoid having to crate your lovable angel while away at work, please inquire about my daytime care option. I am located close to downtown.

If you're located within 15 minutes of downtown, you may be interested in my pop-in walk service-designed either to tire your dog by the time you arrive home from school/work or to prevent coming home to those nasty accidents that are often avoidable (repeat customers: weekly and monthly rates are available).

Allison was amazing! She sent plenty of photo updates throughout the weekend and snoopy loved her. Would definitely book with her again.
Allison was great with my older dog, Newnan! She gave regular updates and Newnan seemed very much at home with her when I picked him up. Thank you, Allison!!
Definitely would use again! Sent me updates and was very loving to my dog while I was gone for the 4th.
Allison was great our older beagle! She has mobility issues which Allison handled well. We highly recommend her.
Allison was great. She helped manage a situation in which my pup and another dog were growling at each other very well. My puppy is very energetic and playful but she seems to have handled him with joy and patience. I also loved receiving pictures. Thank you!
Alli has taken Scout for long walks and dog park trips several times in the last week and done a great job while I was travelling and wife had a broken arm. Great job!
Allison was great, she sent lots of photos and updates, and treated our dogs with love.
great job--thanks.
Kona seemed to have another great stay with Allison, and this time two other dog guests! Thanks for the picture and text updates Allison. Looking forward to Kona's next visit.
Allison did an amazing job for me. She walked my dog every day and was always on time to take him fo walk. She genuinely loves dogs and gave my little guy lots of TLC. She is super flexble and communicative and is always checking in with you to make sure she is meeting and exceeding your expectations. I have used other providers from DV before, but Allison is the best I've ever had. I cannot be more effusive in my recommendation for her.
Allison was great with my anxious dog. She sent pictures and took her on several walks. I would definitely recommend.
Took Scout to dog park. Timely, friendly, great service. Thanks.
2 large dogs, fairly short notice, very cooperative in getting it set up.
Kona seemed to have a great time and clicked well with Allison. The picture and text updates were most appreciated! Would definitely recommend and have Kona go back again.
Ally was great - Daisy stayed with her for a full week and she did a wonderful job. The first night she snapped pics and sent status updates - after that we were out of the country so she couldn't send but she usually will do that if you can receive them. Although the apt is a little small and there is no fenced-in yard, Ally is pretty much home all day with the dogs so they get lots of walks and lots of attention. She does take day boarders which was great for Daisy to get some other canine company too.
Allison was so great to deal with. Great communication, sent us pictures of Gilbert throughout the day, and most importantly of all, Gilbert seemed to have had a wonderful day! Highly recommended!
Allison was great! She was quick to respond to my original inquiry and very professional. Her apartment was extremely clean and she went out of her way to make sure the experience was stressfree for me. She sent several pictures of Rudolph throughout his stay and it felt good to know that my baby was in a loving home instead of a cage while I was on vacation. Allison really seemed to go above and beyond to make sure Rudolph's stay was as comfortable as possible and I would not hesitate to leave him with her again in the future.
Allison was absolutely terrific. I brought my 6-month old French Bulldog by for our reservation, but my business trip was re-scheduled for the following week. Without hesitation, Allison made things happen.

She texted pictures and informative messages the entire four nights my puppy was with her, and she definitely put up with ALL of the puppy nonsense with a smile. Even while she was working on something as important as getting into law school, she was willing and very capable of taking care of my puppy and giving me piece of mind while I was away. 5 stars, I will be returning!
Allison was very kind to and tolerant of our quirky beagle "Chipper". Our reservation was almost last minute and she was flexible with our dates and accommodating to our schedule which was really helpful!
Allison was awesome! Really flexible with time, she was my first experience on Dog Vacay. Definitely will be choosing her again for Romeo.
Allison was wonderful! She took great care of Lucy and sent me updates each day with pictures. Lucy seemed very happy when I got her, and I would definitely leave her there again!
Allison was a gracious and generous host. Her flexibility puts her at the top of our list for positive experiences on DogVacay so far.
Allison took care of Violet good. She tended to all the needs of her and Violet was very happy during the stay.
Allison was a life saver. We were travelling with our dog for the holidays. We planned a stopover in Atlanta. Due to the change in the start time of the Falcon's game, we were no longer going to be able to pick up Brooking before the establishment we reserved for her closed. I was in a panic. Allison was great. She responded quickly. She worked with us. We needed a late pick up time but didn't know exactly when the game would end etc... She gave Brooking the attention she needs and kept us up to date with how she was doing; thus giving us one thing less to worry about during what turned out to be a horrible game. Her quick response and flexibility were a life saver. When we travel back to Atlanta with our dog, we would definitely use Allison again for anytime we couldn't keep Brooking with us.
Allison was great, provided regular feedback by texts & photos on how our Daisy was doing. Or dog seemed happy to be there and we would use her again.
Allison is great! I had a last minute trip and had to leave my little guys behind. She was extremely professional and her home was very clean. I received many pics while I was away to let me know how much fun they were having without me....They came home exhausted and happy. I will be using Allison again.
Allison has provided Allegra, my dog of 14 years with loving care and a healthy environment. She has done a fantastic job. Allegra was very happy during his stay with her. I look forward to working with Allison in the future.
Allison was great! She communicated quickly & clearly, so we felt comfortable booking without even meeting her beforehand. Her apartment was clean and dog friendly. She texted pictures throughout the day and seemed to enjoy our puppy's company. We'll use her again!
