About Ana

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Have no worries or stress over the holidays or any time when it comes the care of your furry friends. Our home is cozy, friendly, smoke free and filled with love to share. We have always had a dog in our lives and couldn't image not having one. Our 12yr old Bichon who loves other dogs, is very social and lost his 15 yr old companion summer of 2014. We also have two human children who just love to cuddle and play with dogs. We have taken care of our friends and neighbours dogs while they have been away on vacation up to 4 wks or stuck at work. Have been watching dogs on Dogvacay for over a year now. When in our home your dog will be treated like part of our family. We live surrounded by parks, lake and on Waterfront trail. We have a closed park yard. We like to go on walks 3 - 4 times a day and love it! We never crate our dogs. But if this is something your dog likes then we please ask you bring it with you. I homeschool my human children so dogs always have lots of company and cuddles. I do not offer the typical boarding but a home away from home experience for your furry friend. I want them to be comfy, stress free and showered with love and attention. We believe that dogs are unique, intelligent and intuitive with honest emotions. They teach us a lot about unconditional love. And fill a home with excitement, energy, warmth, and love. A home is not a home without a dog! If your dog loves company from another dog, children and walks on the Waterfront Trail by Port Credit then we would love to be part of your doggies care! Your dog will get the best wooftastic care!

Our dog enjoyed our stay with Ana. We received pictures and a few comments everyday. Very comforting especially when she had never stayed with anyone before. Ana worked hard with our dog to make her more comfortable with the other dogs. Ana's family was great showing very gentle contact with mine and the other dogs. I would love to have my dog stay there again and highly recommend Vacay.

Ana is the best. Very good and compassionate with dogs. I cannot say enough. Thanks for looking after the greatest dog in the world so well!
Amazing amazing and amazing. Took great care of my puppy and I was so happy. Updated me with pics all the time. Went the distance to provide overall care .
Ana, Nate and the kids were wonderful sitters for my three dogs. I was nervous and reluctant, but all of my fears were allayed when I met Ana and her family. They took incredible care of my boys, gave them so much exercise, love and cuddles. The daily photos and updates were fantastic, detailed and really appreciated. I will definitely use them again, if they will agree!

Ana took care of our Westie, Teddy, for a week while my husband I are were away in the maritimes. From the Meet and Greet it was clear that Ana and her family are very warm, loving, and great with dogs! Ana immediately put me at ease. I loved the daily updates and pictures, and it is clear that Teddy had a wonderful time during his vacay! We will not hesitate to book with Ana the next time we need a doggy sitter. Thanks for taking such good care of our baby! :)

I've never left my dogs before! Needless to say, I was a bit nervous about the entire process. Throw in the fact that I was making a reservation with someone in another country and this doggy momma was on edge. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Ana and her family were wonderful. Even my very anxious rescue boy found comfort at Ana's home. I was pleasantly surprised to find him in her arms when we returned each day. Quite amazing!! The other two love everyone so no issues there. She definitely understands pups and knows how to put them at ease. Highly recommended!!

Ana was a great host for our little french bulldog. Multiple walks a day down by the lake and always a follow up with us by email. We will definitely be using Ana's services again!!
It was our first experience with dog vacay. At our first meeting, Ana made us feel so comfortable, we left confident that Buster was going to be well taken care of. While on our trip, we received pictures and messages daily. We looked so forward to them! Ana was so attentive and treated and loved Buster like her own. We enjoyed every post and never doubted that Buster was getting lots of love and attention!! Thank you Ana for making the first experience wonderful and keeping us assured he was getting the best care without his family there. Best experience, I would never hesitate to bring Buster to Ana again, thank you!!

Ana and her family let me relax and be away knowing my pup was treated like part of their family. I got photo updates etc. Don't want to say too much more or she will always be booked when I need her! Thank you so much... Cooper can't wait to visit again

Ana is an absolutely wonderful and professional host. We had to leave our little Lola for 2 nights and 3 days and wanted to make sure she was in a happy home, integrated with another dog and family. Ana and her family were gracious to treat her like their own. Ana gave Lola her first waterfront experience and she loved it. We recieved regular and prompt communication through out the stay so we were always at ease.

I highly recommend Ana's company and we look forward to booking more future stays with her.

Suki had a blast with Ana and her family. They took such good care of her during our long weekend away. Ana forms genuine connections with the dogs she cares for and always has their comfort and happiness as her top priority. She sent us many photos and daily updates on Suki playing, taking walks, and snoozing. Suki will definitely be returning to Ana's place on our next trip! We are so glad we found her!

We left our dog, who has separation anxiety, with Ana and her family and they all did wonderfully. Ana updated us daily with pictures and words on how well he was doing and it helped us to relax and not worry. He had a great time! I highly recommend Ana and will partake of her care next time we need to travel without our pet.

Ana took care of our puppy like her own. She was very experienced about dogs and that took all our worries away. She also sent us pictures of our puppy during the day which we really liked.

Her place was really nice and the neighborhood seems to be dog friendly. Our puppy had a really great time making friends with Ana's other dog/s.

Overall, we were very satisfied with her service and will definitely book again in the future!

Me and my family were never quite able to book any vacations due to the fact that we had a dog that we could not leave behind. After doing some research online, I came across dogvacay.com. There were a lot of great hosts but something that caught my attention were the great reviews for Ana. I decided to give it a try. First, I took Rocky to Ana's house for a meet and greet. My dog was really comfortable and adjusted quickly. Then, I left my Shit Tzu with Ana for about 5 days. I can not thank her enough for what she did. From day one, I was recieving daily picture updates of my dog. It was such a relief for me and my family to know that Rocky was doing great and was in good hands. Bandet (Ana's dog) was real friendly with Rocky and so was another dog that was staying over at Ana's.

I would personally recommend Anna. She has lots of experience with dogs and I ensure that you will be statisfied.

It was our shipoo's first time staying away from family and he had a wonderful experience! Ana is very knowledgeable about dogs and Jasper was comfortable immediately when meeting her. So were we! :)
Once again, Daniel had a great time staying at Ana's! He enjoyed the playtime with the other dogs and all the walks he had.
Ana is very attentive to each dog's personality and needs, so that each one feels cared for and loved.
I am very particular as to who I will entrust with Daniel and feel very confident when he is left with Ana. Thanks, Ana, for taking such great care of him!

Kyzr had an amazing time! Sorry this is late notice- but he enjoyed himself so much, thank you very much for your help!! He is looking forward to his next visit.
Ana took really good care of my dog while I was away. Daily updates and pictures put me at ease and I knew my dog was taken well care of.the 24/7 care that Ana provided was great and will definitely return to her in future.
We have used Ana several times to watch our Siberian Husky, Beau and can absolutely recommend her 100%. Her and her family are always welcoming Beau and we can tell he is well-loved while he is there. She takes him out to the park sometimes multiple times a day and he always comes home exhausted for days! The saying goes, a tired Husky is a good Husky! We look forward to booking with Ana again.

I can't recommend Ana enough! Our dog is an older Bichon who has never been cared for by folks outside of the family. Zak loved going to Ana's and she took the most remarkable care of him. Bandet, Ana's dog, is a sweetheart. He is also a senior dog - and Zak instantly bonded with him. She sends numerous photo updates and allows your dog up on the couch beside her and her family.If you are in the need for a pet sitter, you will be assured that Ana will take excellent care of your pet

Ana was entirely knowledgeable about all breeds of dogs and showed a true love for animals. She was considerate and gave frequent updates as requested.
Ana watched our boxer for 1 week and even kept ed her for an extra night because of a delay she was prompt with replies and sent wonderful pics almost daily!! I would recommend her to anyone who wants their precious dog left with someone they can trust 100%.

Mr Beans had an amazing doggy vacation with Ana. She truly is an animal lover and it is apparent from the moment you meet her. I would highly recommend her to anyone. You will know your pup is in great hands and will come back happy and exhausted from having so much fun!

What can I say that I haven't said in my prior post. I am elated to have found Ana to board Roxy when I travel. when Roxy saw her things packed she reluctantly went in the vehicle thinking she was going to the kennel. When I turned into Ana's street Roxy recognized the house and started to wag her tail and couldn't wait to get out of the car to greet Ana and her dog Bandet! She Went the house to greet the kids, laid down on the living room floor and was being patted by Ana's daughter. Roxy looked at me while I was leaving and had an expression on her face as if to say thanks mum you can go now! The daily updates and pics are wonderful and gives me such a sense of relief and peace of mind knowing she is in a loving and caring home. Thanks Ana and to your family for having Roxy. Until next time!!!

I recommend Ana 100% unconditionally.

She LOVES dogs (and her kids and hubby too) and spoils mine rotten! I'm not sure my Sheena wants to come home after all those hugs and treats.

Ana kept me informed by daily photos and comments how my doggie was doing. She is THE best dog sitter and I'd never want my dog to go anywhere else.

Our dogs just love going to Ana's. They are well looked after, and cared for. Can't fault the service!
Absolutely wonderful experience! it was like I left my furry baby with a close friend. This is the first time I felt at peace knowing I left her in a loving and nurturing home and roxy became immediate friends with their dog bandet! It was also lovely to have met Ana's beautiful children and how loving they are cause roxy loves kids. It's like Christmas came early for us!!! Perfect match. True animal lovers through and through. The daily pics were awesome! I have another business trip in a couple of weeks will definitely book with Ana. I have recommended dogvaycay to other dog owners in my area!!! Thank you for the wonderful service connecting safe loving homes to our furry friends of all shapes and sizes!!!

Thanks Ana
Great experience. Our dog came home happy and well cared for. Would definitely recommend.
Ana is 100% unconditionally recommended by me!

She LOVES dogs and treats them with so much love and respect. She was in constant contact with me, sending photos and little texts so that I was able to see how well my Sheena was doing without me.

She spoiled her with lots of treats and walks. Even brushing her, so she came back even prettier than when I dropped her off.

I cannot overstate how relieved I was to have found Ana as my dog sitter as I cannot imagine a better place to leave my fur baby when I'm traveling. We did a meet and greet prior and talked for ages.

Ana is a gem, truly loving and generous. We'll be back and telling everyone in my neighbourhood about you too. Thank you so much. You made traveling so much easier for me.

Ana was fantastic with our dog, a 7 month-old Husky puppy named Beau. She was very warm and accommodating with him. We got regular updates with pictures every day. She took him out to an off-leash dog park twice a day and regular exercise in her nice backyard area. We could tell that Beau loved hanging out with Ana and her kids and had a wonderful time. We'll never use a kennel again!! A+++

Ana and her family are AMAZING! I am very protective of my dogs, but had to find care for them because - this was my first time using DogVacay and after several meet-n-greets with other hosts I was skeptical. However during our meet-n-greet with Ana at her house I just knew she would be the perfect person to take care of my girls. She was super AWESOME and thorough throughout our whole experience - at our meet-n-greet, when I e-mailed her questions at any time of day, and most importantly when we were gone on vacation. She sent daily updates, messages and even videos and I TRULY felt like I didn't have to worry because my pups were in such good hands. When it comes to dogs, Ana is extremely knowledgeable, patient and fun-loving and overall her and her family really treat your pups as if they're their own. I could tell when I came home that my pups were loved and well taken care of while we were away. I could go on and on about how wonderful Ana and her family are but the bottom line is that I would HIGHLY recommend reaching out to her if you need someone to care for your pups - her, her children & their dog Bandet are the best! Any time that my pups need care in the future, I'll be booking with Ana for sure.

Ana is a very loving and carring dogsitter . I was very lucky to find person like Ana to take care of my dog.I can always recommend her to other people. Hanna
Ana is amazing host! it was Spikey's first time away from us and from his home, but all went very smothly and he adjusted very quickly and had lots of fun during his vacation. Ana sent us pictures and messages every day.
We left our little 2 year old chihuahua with Ana while we went to our trip, and WOW. Our Choco is very shy with strangers, but she was able to warm up to Ana and her kids! Ana answered all our questions and provided us with many pictures during our trip. I could tell Choco was enjoying her stay!

I usually travel with my two dogs and have never left them with anyone or anywhere before so I was quite hesitant about the entire process. After meeting Ana at her home and seeing where they would be staying and how they would be treated my mind was put at ease.

When I dropped my girls off I still worried that they would be stressed while I was away, but they felt so much at home that they didn't blink an eye when I left. The entire week I was gone I received numerous pictures and updates daily. I could see that they were having a great time going for walks, sleeping in the beds and hanging out with the kids.

I will definitely be using Ana's services again in the future next time I go away. Knowing that they are loved and well cared for while I'm away will make future trips stress free. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of using Dogvacay's services.

Reliable and friendly, our dog likes staying with Ana
Ana is totally excellent and Missy our Poodle had a great time with Ana's kids and the other dogs. Ana even took the time to send photos to illustrate her visit. I would definitely use Ana again.
Ana is fabulous!
From start to finish this was a great experience.
Ana is friendly and warm and truly showed love and care for my dogs. This is huge for me.
When I dropped them off it was stress free.
My dogs were relaxed and playful even when I left them there.
Throughout my vacation, I received so many pictures and updates. I was pretty happy with this part because it because i could they were happy, playing, being walked and played with!

When I took them home, I was convinced. Typically my dogs tend to act out after I've been away. They have looked skinny or been quiet and/or bratty.
There was none of this "funny" behaviour this time.
It was a smooth transition, back to normal life at home.

I would definitely recommend her home and services to care for your beloved babies!
I will be booking with her for my next trip
Finally, I can travel in peace.
No stress, no cages, no smelly upset dogs to take home!

Thank you Ana!
Nicole, Harley and Chunchu

I am so happy I found such a wonderful place for Mikey and would recommend to anyone. I want to thank Ana for looking after my doggie as if he was her own. Hanna
We are very happy with our first Dog Vacay experience. Our puppy Bootsie was very well cared for by Ana for a week. We enjoyed getting the daily photos of her through the app because we missed her. This gave us great peace of mind.

We particularly like that there were other dogs for her to play with and someone responsible was always around.

Ana made it very easy to leave our dog, Zoe overnight for the first time without any worries. She and her family made us feel very comfortable at the meet and greet, and I knew almost right away that it was the perfect place for my dog. She was knowledgeable and caring with Zoe, and accommodating to her individual needs. When I picked her up she was perfectly content. They live in an awesome lakefront neighbourhood with great walking trails, that Zoe got to enjoy on her walks. We will definitely have Zoe stay there in the future.
