Winnie was a gracious and easy to work with host for our elderly dog. She was flexible with her schedule for pick up and drop off and sent cute pictures while we were away. We appreciated her assistance and knew the dog was in good hands.
Winnie was easy to communicate with to arrange the pick up and drop off. She sent adorable photos while we were away. Our dog came home clean and relaxed.
My first experience with DogVacay and Winnie was simple amazing! My dog has is very shy and not very social with many dogs. At Winnie's he made a new friend named Joy and I loved the fact that my baby had so much of fun and didn't care that Mommy was gone for a day. Winnie is incredible, she walked Jovi multiple times and gave him all the attention he usually asks for. She also kept send me updates via texts with cute pictures that I loved. Looking forward to have Jovi's more stays here. Thanks a lot Winnie and DogVacay ??

Another awesome stay with Winnie! Gill is currently napping, blissed out after a quick 2 night mini-vacation with Winnie. She is super accommodating and attentive to Gill. Would definitely recommend boarding with her.
Loved how flexible and friendly Winnie was. Her home is lovely, very "home feel" :) I was happy to find someone like her to trust with my babies!!!
It was a good experience for my German shepherd Bruno. Winnie is Great!
my wife and i left town for a few days and left our labradoodle agnes in winnie's care. upon dropping agnes off i immediately felt comfortable, and more importantly agnes did too. she seemed to like winnie immediately. winnie was responsive and sent us updates and photos to assure us all was ok. what impressed me the most was how agnes behaved when we picked her up from winnie. she was happy to see us as usual, but she didn't seem depleted or like she had been overstimulated, which she often does when we leave her at a doggie daycare facility. it was clear that winnie had kept agnes on her schedule, and integrating her back into our home was easy and seamless. we will definitely be in touch with winnie soon!

Winnie is great! I feel like she took great care for my dog BEE! She is very quick to respond and sends photos and updates as you request. Great experience and I will be leaving bee with her again real soon....
Thank you, Winnie, for taking care of Charlie on such a short notice! And for sending his picture too! I am sure he will come to spend some time with you again :)
Winnie was easy to work with and Daphne had a great time.
Winnie is awesome!! My dog is high maintenance, insecure, and fiesty. Within just two days, Winnie has managed to calm my chihuahua enough to allow her to pick her up. What a feat!!
We needed a last minute booking for our dog Buddy when we were camping over Memorial Day weekend when we learned he could not enjoy swimming in the lake with us due to algae bloom. Winnie graciously took Buddy in and he was very well cared for in a warm and clean environment. We certainly would recommend Winnie to others seeking sitting services for their four legged family members!

My dog Jack loved his little vacation at Winnie's house. He made lots of friends, played all day long, and went for lots of walks. Winnie kept in contact with me and sent me daily pictures! We will definitely be using Winnie's services again!!!
Winnie took care of my little dog wonderfully with two much needed and appreciated dog walks. She sent photos during the walks which really put me at ease. I will work with Winnie again.
Hank seemed to enjoy his stay with Winnie. She was very responsive and flexible when my return was delayed a bit. Thanks!
The dogvacay website was great for a first time user like me, and choosing Winnie to take care of our Westie turned out so wonderfully! Bailey stayed with Winnie for three nights and during her stay, Winnie sent me photos of Bailey on her walks and playing with the other dogs. Bailey will be a repeat client again soon!

Winnie is great with Cooper! He always comes back home completely pooped from all the fun he's had at Winnie's. She is my go-to dog sitter when I am out of town.
We have left our sweet dog, Hushpuppy with Winnie more than once and are planning to do it again. He always comes back happy and healthy. Winnie and her husband are friendly and accommodating and easy to work with.
Winnie is fantastic! She responds right away, is professional and very friendly. Our dog Moose had a great time staying with Winnie (and company) over a weekend. We definitely recommend her and will keep using her services in the future!
Winnie is excellent! Our 5 month old puppy, Bailey stayed with Winnie for a week! We've never been apart from Bailey more than a night so my husband and I were a little anxious but Winnie was gracious with the status checks and providing us with pictures of Bailey (who seemed to be having a blast and didn't seem to miss us at all).

When we got back, Bailey was healthy and happy. Winnie even took the time to clean Bailey's crate cushion!

If we ever need to go out of town again, Winnie is our go-to-sitter!

Winnie was fantastic. Our puppy had a great time and was happy and full of spirit when we picked her up. She was well taken care of and the house was clean and well kept. Her location is very convenient as it's right off the freeway. We will use Winnie again without question.

It's great to have Winnie in the neighborhood - such a convenient location for our Cooper to stay when we are out of town! Cooper felt at home immediately and had a great time during his stay with Winnie! Jeannette
Winnie is great. She responds very quickly in communicating with us. Our dog, who tends to be nervous, enjoyed his stay with Winnie. She sent us pictures and was so warm and friendly with our Reggie. I will definitely be a return dog vaycayer for our next outing.

Winnie was awesome! Our pup has to take special meds and I didn't worry about leaving him in her hands one bit for our 10 day vacation. He came home happy, tired (and clean!) and I got pictures and updates throughout the week. I will definitely request Winnie next time I need to go out of town.

Winnie was fantastic. She agreed to the booking the day before I had to leave on a trip. I dropped him off and he trotted off with two other dogs. He seemed happy. She was lovely to work with. It was all good.
Winnie did a great job watching our dog Wrinkle for 10 days. Wrinkle is really shy at first with new people but he bonded with Winnie after the second day of daycare that we scheduled before we travelled. Winnie did a great job getting to know him and giving him treats so he seemed at ease with her and we felt comfortable leaving him for 10 days at her house. He also had a fun time playing with the other dogs as well in her backyard. Winnie also sent regular photo updates while we were away and answered any messages promptly. She was also happy to feed him our prepared and frozen food during his stay. We will definitely use Winnie again for our longer trip in June!

Winnie took wonderful care of my little dog Louie for 4 nights while we were out of town. She responded quickly to all emails and texts I sent her. She also sent photo updates of Louie daily. Was my first time using this site and everything went really well! Will use Winnie again!

Winnie was exceptional!
Winnie really takes of Gill and he loves the backyard and other dogs that are around. He comes back looking like he had such a good time every time we board with Winnie.
My dog, Kirby, loved staying with Winnie for a week. Winnie was super accommodating in letting me drop Kirby off on Christmas morning and I'd definitely use her again. Thanks Winnie!
Winnie was great with Panda and very flexible when I had to cut my trip short and pick him up a day early.
Winnie was awesome! She was very responsive and able to accommodate a last minute reservation. She sent daily updates to let me know that my dog Paxton was doing well. I definitely recommend her and will be booking again for my next vacation.
Winnie is great! She has watched my dog twice now and i would highly recommend her to anyone looking. She always sends tons of pictures and takes him on multiple walks/day! Thanks Winnie!!
We are so happy we found Winnie! Our puppy is pretty shy with new people and it took him a few visits with Winnie and her pups to warm up, but between his new doggy pals and Winnie’s warm demeanor, Mac walks in tail wagging every time now! It's a great feeling not to worry about him while we are on vacation - especially with all the photos Winnie uploads during his stays.

Winnie has been wonderful. She has been kind and I have greatly appreciated her having my dog with her during the day. I have dropped my pup off at her house every morning and picked him up in the evening. Since he's a puppy I didn't want to leave him at home alone in a crate too often. He has a lot of energy and i wanted him to be able to get it out during the day while i was at work. Every time i have picked him up he seemed very happy. From what i saw he was able to play with other pups, socialize, and get his energy out. When i drop him off in the morning he always seemed excited to be back. I'll definitely be coming to Winnie if i ever need my pup taken care of while i'm away. :)

Another great vacation for Rosie with Winnie!
I ended up using Dogvacay when my original sitter backed out at the last minute. My usual boarders were booked due to the holiday weekend so I was in a panic that I would have to push out my trip.

I found Winnie on Dogvacay and she generously agreed to take my dog at the last minute. She responded to messages very quickly and provided me with pictures of my dog during his stay. Also, she was very flexible with the drop off and pick up times.

I could tell my dog had a great time playing with the other dogs because he was so perky when I picked him up. I would definitely use Winnie again.

Winnie took great care of our pooch while we were away for a week. She was responsive, met us right away for a meet and greet, and and then kept us updated with really wonderful pictures the whole time we were gone. Thank you, Winnie!
I was a bit hesitant using this service as it was my first time. But, Winnie was fantastic! She sent me regular pictures and updates of Lucky during our 1.5 week long trip. Winnie is super responsive, typically responds within a few seconds. I feel 100% comfortable having Lucky stay with Winnie again.

Winnie was GREAT!
Winnie was great! I boarded Gill, my daschund, with her and she took great care of him. He enjoyed the fenced backyard and I felt better knowing he was safe when playing outside.
We've never left our shy dog with someone other than family or friends. Winnie responded right away to my email, showered our dog with affection and made an extra effort to keep him comfortable during the five days at her house. Winnie also sent us pictures and updates, and he came home happy and relaxed. Her fenced-in backyard provided lots of fun roaming time with her other two dogs, who Mojo got to hang out with. My dog really responded well to Winnie's gentle disposition and extra cuddle time!

Winnie was great with out dog, Rosie! Rosie came home happy and healthy and made a couple of 4 legged friends in the process. Winnie was very flexible and accommodating when our schedule changed. We'll definitely book with Winnie next time!
Winnie was very easy to make arrangements with, and she is very professional. Bella remembered our get acquainted visit, and eagerly went up to the house for her stay. She was exercised and relaxed when I picked her up.
This was the first time I used DogVacay for Holi. Winnie was quick at setting up the Meet n Greet and I knew Holi would fit in with her other two small dogs. When I picked up Holi she was happy and tired, which meant she had lots of activity to keep her busy. Thank you Winnie for making our first experience great.

We found Winnie earlier this year, when our Josie was a very young puppy and we could not avoid a scheduled trip. Winnie and her own dogs and other guest dogs were Josie first "separation" and "socialization" experiences, and on our return Josie clearly had had a very positive experience. As we prepared for 8 days away in September, we scheduled a "reacquainting" afternoon for Josie at Winnie's, which went well, then dropped Josie off for the longer stay. Winnie sent text updates and photos, letting us track Josie's well-being, her walks, and doggie companions while we were away. We look forward to continuing Josie's and our friendship with Winnie and friends when we have boarding needs in months to come.

I was nervous about leaving my pup for a few days, but Winnie was great! She is responsive and sent lots of pictures of my pup's stay - he appears to have had fun.
Winnie was a nice person and kept our dog active, but he returned with scores and scores of burs, small thorns, foxtails etc. Some were next to his ears and on his face. We spent an hour trying to cut them away and we are taking him into groomer tomorrow to get the rest. He was clearly listless and uncomfortable. We are monitoring him.

We were extremely concerned that our 4-month-old foundling pup Josie would be traumatized by our leaving her anywhere but at home for a week-long trip to the Midwest. She'd had very limited contact with other humans or dogs. We found Winnie C on DogVacay, with a great reference from a previous client who'd left a young pup with her. We had a nice meet-and-greet with Winnie, her own Westie, and another boarding dog, and then a subsequent successful 2-hour stay a few days before our departure. When those two events went well, we signed up for the 6-night stay. Josie adjusted well, met, played, and slept with other dogs, and flourished. Winnie sent daily texts with pics, which relaxed us for our own vacay! Josie and we look forward to further visits to Winnie!

Winnie watched our dog Bella (a 15-month old small terrier mix) for a week while we were out of town on vacation. She sent us updates and photos and was always very quick to respond to our questions about how Bella was doing while we were away. Bella loved playing with the other dogs in Winnie's care and clearly had a very good week staying at Winnie's house.

Winnie is so flexible with my crazy work schedule. My dog, Xavi, is always so happy to see Winnie and he is, appropriately, worn out after his visits with Winnie.
As new puppy parents, we were very happy to have found Winnie. We started bringing our pup, Nora, to Winnie when she was around 4 months old. Winnie has been consistently available which is always appreciated as our work schedules tend to be a bit unpredictable and sometimes we need a sitter on a day's notice.
We considered taking Nora to a kennel or doggy day care, but ultimately she does not receive the love, attention, care and most importantly a really good time like she does at Winnie's house. Nora is always happy and eager to run into Winnie's house and play with her dog. It helps to know that she is with a lovely caretaker and will be having fun while we are gone. Thank you Winnie!

Winnie is just terrifc.
Am always worried about leaving my Rocky for more then a few days because I know he does get grumpy, but Winnie sent me frequent reports with pictures and it was obvious she knew how to handle everything to make for a great stay. Rocky came home today happy, healthy and best of all calm.
The custom quote supplied included times, a drop off home, etc. so the entire process was clear.
What a great find. I will definitely be using her services again.

Winnie was a great host. She seems to genuinely love dogs, and she has a great home to host in. Nora came back tired and happy with no incidents, and Winnie even sent me a couple of pictures. Would definitely book again. Thanks Winnie!
