About Pamela

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have loved and cared for pets for over 45 years! I have never met a dog I didn't like. After losing our beautiful German Shepherd Dog after 12 1/2 glorious years, we felt pulled to extend our love and devotion to caring for your pet/s and showering them with love and affection in a happy, calm and safe environment. It's been over two years now and we adore our Dog Vacay guests :)
We can promise your pups our continuous attention and care while you are away feeling secure that they are with us, as we are blessed to work from home. We are watching and caring for your pet/s 24/7, they will never be left unattended. We live in midtown, in a peaceful cul-de-sac in a cozy and comfortable home with a securely fenced back and side yard. We are close to Woodward Park and can take your baby there, or for a walk around our Bryn Mawr neighborhood or for a car ride, whatever they fancy. Perhaps a river walk. We aim to please. Homemade organic dog biscuits anyone?
We also cared for our old blind Yorkie who passed on and can accommodate special needs, diets, medication etc.
Any size, any age, they will find love here, (Just look at some of my adorable past guests).
When I am hosting your pet, my fee includes walks, bathing if needed and more and of course tons of belly rubs and love.
I am available for pick up and drop off as well and welcome day care visits as well.
Background : I birthed my own pet ministry in California and was also VP of the board at the San Diego Humane Society North Campus for years. As a teen I worked for the Tulsa zoo. I also drive puppy transports of rescues to other states to save lives. We appreciate your consideration the next time you travel or desire any of our services from day care, overnight boarding, vacation stays and more. :)

If you're looking for the perfect place for your pooch(es) to stay, you can stop right now, because you won't find anyone in the same ballpark as Pamela. Employing a holistic strategy that puts your fur baby at ease immediately, Pamela is also sure to check in with you frequently via text message updates that include keepsake-quality photos of your pup. Pamela is truly an experienced professional who treats every animal as a very special individual. Our Charlie and Lucy were actually better behaved after we brought them back home! I cannot recommend this service highly enough.
I am so sorry it has taken me so long to leave a review for Pamela H. She is amazing. She is so kind and attentive and professional. My pup loves her, so much so, that when I mention Pam's name my dog goes crazy. She can not wait to go see Pam. I just recently moved to Tulsa and was so worried about finding someplace to board my dog equal to what I left behind in Houston. Pamela H. far exceeds any pet daycare or boarding experience we've ever had.
What a wonderful experience!!! The dogs loved their stay and were happy & healthy upon our return! Never worried for one minute since we received daily photos with updates while we were gone. The dogs were never left alone and they loved Pamela's homemade healthy treats!!! They can't wait to go back during our next trip!!!
Such a great experience! My two dogs came back happy and healthy.
Pamela, thanks so much for all you did to make Pippin's overnight so loving and fun for him. As new puppy parents, it was scary leaving him the first time but I knew at our meet n greet that you would be perfect!! Thanks so much for such amazing care for our little guy!
Pamela, Thanks so much for watching Pip for us! You are always amazing! We're so thankful for all you do
Pamela kept me constantly updated on my little guy both with text messages about how he was doing and pictures! She was quick to respond to questions on Dogvacay and will definitely be a re-book when I need someone to dogsit again!
Pamela is amazing. She asked for a lot of info on my dogs so she could take the best care of them. She sent me frequent updates and even got my award winning napping chihuahua to pose in an "action shot". She took great care of my puppies and was very considerate about my worst fear of them being swept up by a large predatory bird. She was careful when introducing them to her foster dog and the other dog staying with her that weekend. They had a great time and I will use her services again and again in the future.
What a great place to leave your pet. We were extremely satisfied with the care and attention Pamela gave Buddy. First time we were going out of town without taking Buddy and were dreading leaving him at a kennel. So glad we found DogVacay and PAMELA. She sent lots of pictures and took excellent care of Buddy and treated him like a king. We will definitely use Pamela again and highly recommend her to others.
I am new in town and relied solely on reviews on Dog Vacay website, and I was not disappointed. Our experience with Pamela H was great. My dog seemed to have had a great time, with zero problems. Pamela was attentive, kind, and considerate of all my concerns.
Pamela probably loves dogs more than anyone we've ever met! She is absolutely amazing. Our dog had a wonderful time with her. From the homemade treats to the belly rubs... what's not to like? She'll send you lots of messages with pics and updates on what's up. Far and away the best host we've ever had. Our dog will be coming back again for sure!
My husband and I both traveled separately last week. As I was the first to leave, John dropped Cooper off early Friday morning. He said Cooper immediately felt comfortable, happy, and excited in Pamela's home. She is very kind, accommodating and gave our dog lots of attention. The pictures that we received via text assured us all was well, besides making us laugh. We have found our "forever" sitter with Pamela. Thank you, Pamela.
As usual, Pam & JD are the BEST!
I had a good feeling about leaving our Great Pyrenese Breck with Pamela during my vacation. She exceeded all of my expectations! I was amazed at the care and love she provided. Breck was treated like he was a long time deeply loved family member. The updates with pictures were wonderful. It was nice to see Breck was having a good vacation too. I plan to have Pamela keep Breck anytime we go out of town.
I live in Ohio and was visiting Tulsa, with the temps out there I knew Jazz would be very uncomfortable. She has to be on Meds twice daily. Pam and JD took care of her as if she was theirs. Pam sent pictures and updates thru the stay. I would definitly use them again. Great People, clean enviroment, loving home. Thanks so much
We were on a two week cruise and left our dog Molly to stay with Pamela. Molly was well taken care of while we were away. Pamela takes the time to get to know your pet and does all she can to make her feel special and comfortable.
Pamela is fantastic! I have an elderly blind Shi Tzu and she took such good care of him! She was very thorough in preparing for his visit, and I received several pics and updates throughout his stay. I couldn't be more pleased with Pamela's care for my dog. I will definitely be utilizing Pamela's services in the future!
I love Pamela!!!! My sweet Oscar had a blast and I received plenty of pics throughout the day to keep me in the loop which made my trip so much more relaxing!!! I plan on calling Pamela next time I go out of town....
Our Great Dane Bella had a great four day stay with Pam. She kept us updated daily with multiple pictures and texts. I would recommend Pam to any of my friends and family.
We could not have provided better care for Crosby ourselves:) Since we are empty nesters, that is really saying something! Pamela gave our pup so much love. We received pics every day and he had a ball.
Outstanding - she could not have done anything more to make us happy with her care and our dog Beans was so content and happy! Great environment for dogs- great people!
I had two small dogs that stayed and they were wonderful with both dogs. One of my dogs is older and as a couple of special needs and they were wonderful with her. They were very well cared for and I received many updates and pictures during their stay. I felt very comfortable and helped to relax and enjoy my trip. I will absolutely use them again.
Staying with Pamela is like sending Cougar to summer camp. He's glad to see us but also hates to leave her. I think he looks forward to us leaving town so he visit Pamela & play with friends that stay there too.
I was going out of the country for 16 days but have a wonderful dog I needed taken care of while I was gone. I had never left Gilson except for 2 days with family but knew I didn't want him in a kennel for that long. I wanted someone who would love him and care for him like I do. DogVacy was recommended to me and I checked it out. Found Pamela Hower, liked her reviews so made an appointment for a meet and greet. I felt so comfortable with her from the minute I entered her home. Gilson acted relaxed there, loved on Pamela and JD and they loved on him. She asked the right questions about Gilson and what he likes and doesn't like. Knew right away she was the "one". I left my dog for 2 weeks with her and on my return couldn't have been more pleased. I got daily updates with pictures, they walked him 2 times daily as was his habit. They even let him sleep with them on the bed which is his habit with me. I didn't worry about him at all while I was gone. I knew he was being loved and taken well care of. I highly recommend Pamela to care for your pet. Will certainly use her again whenever I need care for Gilson. So happy with the way he was when I returned. Happy, healthy, and so lovable.
We honestly don't know what we'd do without Pam. She is so great with Ollie and Ollie loves her. She's absolutely great and keeps you up to date on how your pup is doing. We highly recommend her and so does Ollie.
Wow what a great hostess Pamela is! She and JD treated our Husky, Lola, like a queen. It was Lola's kind of weather -- icy cold -- and they took her for 2 or 3 walks every day and she got lots of backyard play time too. Pamela also kept us up to date with lots of photos and messages. Lola has not spent any time in non-family homes, so the photos were a great re-assurance for us. We will definitely take advantage of Pamela again and probably be more willing to travel when family is not available to
dog-sit-- thanks to such a great home-away-from-home for Lola.
Ivan had a great daycare stay with Pam. He has already booked a vacay over the holidays!
I am extremely strict and over protective where and who I let my dogs stay with. I've had a lot of places and people I have liked with my dogs but Pamela takes the cake! I have never seen my dogs so happy. She sent me daily pictures and constantly updated me on how they were doing which made me feel so much more at ease while I was on vacation. In fact, my dogs liked her so much that they were depressed for a good few days when I brought them back home. They moped around like they lost their best friend. My dogs are also very hyper and it's hard to find someone that can handle them and I couldn't have been more impressed with Pamela. I will always use Pamela for my precious 4 legged kiddos. Best in town!!
When you have furry babies that you feel are like children to you, the last place you want to put them is at a kennel or vet's boarding facility where they are stuck in a crate all day except for their limited "play time" and "potty time". I've done that and it was traumatizing for me and my boys.

I found Pamela on DogVacay when we were planning a week long trip to get married in Jamaica. From the moment I started communicating with her I knew this was where they needed to be, in their home. She and her husband JD absolutely spoiled my little yorkies Bruiser and Spike with so much love and fun. Pamela catered to Spikes picky eating issue and made sure he ate well to avoid hypoglycemia. They got to play in the yard, hang out on the couch, they went on a walk every day and even got to sleep in the bed with them! My little Spike didn't want to leave and even looked teary eyed out the window at them as we drove off.

I highly recommend Pamela and JD (except when I need them! :-)) They truly have a gift that they are giving which is love and a 2nd home away from home.

We could not have ask for better care and love shown to our two pups! Pamala is a wonderful person who truly cares for your pups. I cannot say enough how relaxed I felt leaving them with her.
5 stars aren't nearly enough to express how super fantastic Pam was with our babies. Keela and Mingo think she hung the moon. My last review pretty much says it all. They can't wait to go back in the future!!!
Pam was so wonderful with our two dogs! One had never stayed with strangers before and the other was only 10 weeks old and had never been without us. They were so loved and taken such good care of. Pam was great about sending pictures so we were always up to date on how they were doing. We couldn't have been happier!
Pamela was fantastic -- great experience from start to finish! Will absolutely be using Pamela going forward.
Our dog experiences separation anxiety away from home. We booked a sleep over with Pamela to see how he would do before a longer trip we are planning. Not only did he do great we weren't sure he wanted to go home with us after spending the night with her. She has such a wonderful spirit and way with animals. We definitely felt he could tell he was safe and loved. In every picture she sent us I swear he was smiling! We will definitely be using her again and again.
There really aren't words to express the gratitude we have for the loving care Keela & Mingo received from Pam & JD. They have more compassion and concern for the well being of our babies than anyone we've ever met. The pictures & updates she sent were adorable and we could tell they were having a wonderful time with them. They will be going back in 3 weeks for 7 days and I must say they will probably not want to leave. Simply put they are the best and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!!!
Pamela was amazing! Moochie instantly took to her and felt at home. He loved that she had a big, fenced-in backyard. Pamela was so thoughtful sending multiple sweet texts with pictures each day to let us know that Moochie was having fun and really getting spoiled while we were away. We will definitely be using Pamela again!
Pam is so wonderful! This is our second time using her and we are very impressed! She sends pictures via text and gives us updates to Lilly's day. We will use her again.
Pam & JD were awesome with Ruby! They sent me pictures almost each day.....lots of very good pictures. I could tell they really loved her and when I picked her up, although she was glad to see me, she still would return to sit by them from time to time as we chatted. I would recommend them to any dog lover!
We had an unexpected emergency and had to find a sitter quick. Our dogs loved staying there. They were well treated and I look forward to letting them go back someday. I will definitely use Pamela again.
Pam is an amazing dog sitter and her love of animals is apparent in her treatment and concern for them. Pam provided daily updates along with photos of Yoshi's activities which we found to be very reassuring. Pam also made sure to check with us on certain food items we had not left specific instructions on, i.e., a milk bone from the bank drive thru and an egg white Yoshi begged for while she was eating one. I appreciate this as you can never be too careful with a dogs diet. Pam also provided our dog with a daily massage, playtime and his favorite music channel. This was our 10 year old dogs first stay away from home (as we have always had sitters in our house) so we were a bit apprehensive of how he might do and I can only say how pleased we are with Pam and her extra attentive care of our one and only semi-spoiled dog. When we picked him up he was very happy and it was obvious he adored Pam and had been well treated. We are already planning on using Pam again and we couldn't be happier to have found such a wonderful caring sitter for our precious dog. Thanks again Pam
Pam & JD are/were the sweetest hosts to our girls! They were very accepting of anything we asked and instructions that we gave. They accommodated and made room for their crates, even though they didnt use them and made pallets for our girls to sleep on :) I know they were spoiled with their sweet love and care, by the picture updates and texts that they sent to us while we were away. Our girls are very energetic and they kept them on their toes Im sure, but no worried vibes were given to us when we arrived to pick them up. We had no worries that they were in great hands and we will definitely hire them again. Thanks again Pam & JD! XO
Pamela is so nice, and really loves the dogs that she boards. We were lucky enough to find Pamela on DogVacay for boarding while we went on a trip for a few days. We got plenty of updates and pictures, which set us at ease while we were away. My dog got nearly constant attention, it seemed!
Just great
Excellent care for my dogs
