About Nyree

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***EDIT FOR HOLIDAY RESERVATIONS** If you're one of my regulars and I show as booked during the holidays please message me. As a regular your dog is already acclimated to my dogs and home so having them over will be just like having family visit.****

I've had animals all my life but I've actually worked/volunteered/fostered all different types of animals for about 17 years.

Looking on DogVacay for a host to watch your dog or cat, who is also a member of your family can be difficult. Especially if you've never left them with anyone but trusted family or friends. Let me assure you that your furry son or daughter will be safe and most of all happy here. We will love them and treat them as one of our own.

We take every precaution to make sure your animal is integrated in the pack properly. If your pet doesn't do well the first day. That's no problem, we will continue to work with them until they are comfortable. I always look for body language to gauge the dogs interactions with each other. I will not take a risk with your pet. If your pet doesn't get along with one dog then we can integrate them with a different one. If your dog prefers to be around no other pets, that's fine too. There are 6 people here ages 13 and up. All of them have been around animals all of their lives and 3 of them have worked in the animal field. We are very well trained and because this is my job, your pet will be supervised at all times because someone is ALWAYS home.

Whether you're looking for a place to keep your pet while you vacation, a place for your pet to play and socialize for the day, a place for your elderly dog (s) or cat (s) to rest and get some loving while being closely monitored, then look no further. That's what I'm here for!

WHAT TO BRING:
Please bring the food you want your dogs to eat. If they want to sleep in a bed with us that's fine. If you prefer them to be crated, that's fine too. Just bring their crate.

PLAYTIME:
We do lots of playtime (weather permitting) and there are always lots of toys brought out for the dogs to play with. As well as a dog pool. I want them to have a great vacation too! If your pet is a senior we will do things at their pace. We also take dogs to the park for walks with owners consent.

DROP OFF/PICK UP:
I am flexible on pick up and drop off times

.
I also send daily pictures of what your pets are up to. I might take too many pictures but I think it's important for people to see their pets happy and safe. :)

THINGS TO KNOW IF YOU CHOOSE US:

1) I am lenient on vaccinations UNLESS it is for a puppy. All puppies must have at least their first set of vaccinations 2 weeks prior to boarding. This is for the safety of all the guests.

2) ****THEY MUST BE FLEA FREE AND HAVE FLEA PREVENTION ON*** NO EXCEPTIONS.****

3) The dogs here play and during play time they can get dirty. I will wipe/rinse them off if needed. upon your request I can bathe them (for a fee $15) an hour before pickup.

4) if your pet is incontinent (I don't mind) you will need to provide doggie diapers, wipes, or pads.

Please message me if you have any questions regarding the above requirements. I understand that some circumstances may be different.

If your dog(s) prefer to be the only dog or only with it's own dog family member I can accommodate that. Please message me to see if we have an opening for those circumstances. :)

LOCATION:
I'm in a central location right off of I-20. About 10 minutes from Downtown Fort Worth, 10 minutes from South Arlington, 15 minutes from the Zoo, 20 minutes from the Stockyards, and 30 Minutes from Dallas

I work as a contractor in Iraq and am gone for 3-6 months at a time. Working in a war zone is extremely stressful as it is, and not having to worry about my dogs when I am gone is wonderful! I can't even begin to describe how nerve racking it is to be in a war zone, 9,000 miles away from your pets, hoping that they feel love in your absence. I used to worry all the time before Nyree watched them, but not any more. Nyree and her family takes care of my dogs as if they were her own. My dogs have never received this high a level of care from other friends and family that I have had watch them, and my dogs have never been happier! They get to play all the time, sleep in bed with them, and truly they are a part of the family. I don't have to ask for updates or pictures, Nyree always keeps me updated, and I now have peace of mind. I highly recommend Nyree for your pet sitting needs, I used to also work with her as an Animal Control Officer, and her level of compassion for all animals is something to be admired, she is at ease with all animals, all ages of animal, all animals with medical needs, and I could go on and on. If you need to leave your pet with somebody while you are away, I guarantee that you could not find a better person, or a better place than with Nyree and her family, not only will you be put at ease, but more importantly, your pet will be put at ease, happy, and well taken care of! If you are looking for a second home for your pets, look no further!

I have boarded my dogs with Nyree every time I have gone out of town. I don't trust JUST anyone to care for my dogs. When I leave my dogs with Nyree, I have peace of mind, because I know my dogs will be loved and cared for as if they were her own beloved dogs. She will accommodate any unique needs my dogs have, such as allergies, medications, and preferences. During my dogs' stay, Nyree will send me pictures and updates of my dogs everyday. When I pick up my dogs, they are happy and well cared for; THAT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME. When I take them back to stay with Nyree, they are happy to see her! I highly recommend boarding your pets with Nyree. She genuinely loves animals and has the knowledge and experience to properly care for your pets. She's fantastic and you will have peace of mind!

Our beagle, Tex, has stayed with Nyree and her family twice and Tex loved it each time. He comes home and sleeps for days because he had so much fun. I chose them because of the favorable reviews and I can definitely agree with everyone else that has had their dog stay with Nyree - amazing! Your dog will be pampered and you won't have to worry about your pup while you are out of town. They even send tons of pictures, which is always fun to get. I would recommend Nyree to my friends and family and I highly recommend her to anyone who is reading this!

Nyree was amazing! We had need for a last minute diet. Nyree not only accommodated us, but took great care of my babies. I have a 9yr old mini schnauzer with diabetes. Nyree had no issues giving him injections. What a relief to be able to go away and not have to worry that your babies are taken care of!

My experience with Nyree was absolutely amazing. They were so attentive and provided me with pictures and videos throughout the stay. I would highly recommend them.
Well, my "Mr. Nose" has stayed with Nyree 4 times and he will stay many more time for great care, super pictures and videos and of course, lots of fun. Might also bring him over in the future for some play time during the day.
I felt really comfortable leaving my baby with Nyree. They treated Fiona like one of their own and sent me pictures all day. I've already scheduled another vacay!
Nyree and her family were great with Pepper! They make you feel like your leaving your dog with a good friend and are great about sending lots of photos! I will definitely be using her again!
Nyree and Kevin have the perfect home and yard for your dogs. They are so nice and provided photos and videos of our dogs more than once a day. The yard is king size and very dog friendly. My dogs even slept in their bed with them. We will use them again. Thank you for opening your home and yard to Sadie and Peyton.

I took the time to meet many people before choosing Nyree and I made the right decision.My wife and I took a 10 day Vocation in Spain and my dog had the best time. Nyree took the time to take pictures and videos to keep us updated. Truly the best place for your dog. Definitely will use them again.

Nyree took a very last, same day appointment. They took great care of Twister and he enjoyed running in their backyard. It took him a day to recover from all the fun he had. Nyree and her husband even gave us a thank you card with a treat for Twister. Will definitely recommend to others and plan to take Twister back!

She was awesome! Very flexible with the drop off and pick up times and I loved getting pictures and videos of my pup pup over the weekend.
Nyree took special care of our fur baby!! She is an amazing person and an amazing dog sitter. Will definitely use her again.
Well, my buddy spent another 3 days with Nyree and her fury and non fury family. And as before, he had a great time as plenty of pictures and a video showed me. This is exactly what my "best friend" needs; play time with other dogs. He'll be back at the "dog resort" now every month at least once.
Thanks Nyree

Mishka loves her stays with Nyree and the gang! I know my dog is taken care of and when she returns she is better than ever!
They were great with ZEUS what can I say if my dog had its way his on his way back over to there place ..
My pups stay at Nyrees was wonderful. She recognized that I was nervous about leaving him, I had never left him with anybody who wasn't family, and she sent me so many photos of my very happy dog to ease my worries.
Fantastic service. Pictures and messages to let me know what was going on daily. Will be using them again!
Nyree and her husband were great! They sent pictures of my pup and kept me up to date of everything going on. I highly recommend them and will use their services in the future
Kuma had a fantastic stay. Nyree was great about uploading pictures, videos and keeping us updated on how Kuma was doing. While our dog doesn't have any special needs or restrictions, they were sure to ask and were willing to accommodate. Would highly recommend to others.

The most loving and fun environment for my buddy. Daily updates and pictures made me realize how much I miss my friend but at the same time, I also think he misses his new friends and hosts now that he is back home. Well, we'll be back every month and I am thinking about bringing him over a few times just for play time.
Thanks Nyree.

Nyree was great! She sent me pictures of him throughout his 24 hour stay, I missed him but knew he was in great hands and a loving heart! When I picked up my pup he was happy and didn't want to leave, they did a great job and this was my first time using this website and I will definitely go back to Nyree again and again. Just a terrific experience and I recommend her to anyone.

P.S. She also included a cute thank you card and a dog treat on the way out. Simply great!

Nyree and her family are great. I was skeptical about boarding our 4 1/2 months old boy at first with Nyree or dogvacay but I'm glad I did. Tyson was a high energetic dog that needs lots of play time and socialization. Nyree and her furbabies made him feel right at home. I would use her again. Thanks.

Nyree did a exceptional job, I felt that Niko was very well taken care of. I received at least one picture each day. Will definitely board Niko there again.
Nyree and her family were the best for my fur babies and I will always book with her
Nyree is awesome! She kept us updated with cute pictures of our dog during our entire trip. Our dog never looked happier. Thank you. Highly recommend.
My dogs look so happy in the pictures Nyree sends.. I know they are in good hands.
I have a sweet female dog that has issues with other dogs sometimes. Leaving her with Nyree really put my mind to ease, dropping her off I was able to see where she'd be staying and her play spots. Throughout her stay I received many great photos and videos and on request they walked Annie for me each day. Nyree provides amazing service and love to her vacay pups. I'd highly recommend and will be using her from now on when I travel.

My dogs were very happy to be there, Nyree sent pictures daily, and you can see their smiles! Definately keeping Nyree on speed dial!
Nyree made our two dogs feel right at home. We loved the daily updates and she always had pictures of our two girls having a great time! They went outside, watched television, and they came back home and took a nice, long nap! She even did great with them during a thunderstorm- one of our girls is terrified of thunder! We would use her again in a hearbeat!!

I boarded my dog Marble with Nyree and she was great! She was easy to get a hold of before the weekend I was boarding Marbs, and answered any questions that I had. Also when I wanted to get a hold of her on the weekend she was easy to contact and always got back to me quickly.

Marble seemed to have a great time playing with the other dogs. I got a ton of pictures showing what she was doing throughout the day. It was comforting to know that she was getting out and about instead of having to be in her crate all day.

Nyree and her family are great. I could tell they really love animals. She sent me updates during Masey's doggie daycare stay and even started teaching her to sit. Masey came home tired from having so much fun! I didn't want my dog stuck in a kennel and I don't want a doggie daycare where injuries can occur. Nyree is the perfect solution for me and Masey. She is my go to dog sitter!

Great vacay for my dogs! Nyree is a pleasant, caring lady who took great care of my furkids. I could tell from the pictures Nyree sent daily ,that my dogs were happy and enjoying themselves. I could also see that Nyree really liked the dogs and they liked her! They didn't miss me at all! My own trip had a little hiccup and got extended a day.. Nyree handled the change without a problem.
