About Darcy

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello doggy parents!

To say that I am obsessed with dogs is an understatement. I have grown up with dogs all of my life and realize the many benefits they provide their owners. My former roommate of three years had the best dog who I grew to love. My favorite part of the day was coming home and seeing how excited Scooter was to see me. Often, I'd take care of Scooter when my roommate was out of town and we always had the best time together. I miss having a dog around, that's why I'm thrilled to be part of DogVacay. I find that dogs and humans have a lovely relationship that I feel wonderful to be a part of.

I work regular hours during the work week and can host then and also over the weekends.

Darcy was a great host! She kept me informed about how Lucia was doing very regularly and sent some great pictures. I'm always nervous having Lucia stay with new people, but after picking her up from Darcy's you could tell she was very well cared for. I would definitely recommend Darcy to anyone looking for a dependable sitter!!

Darcy was so great- very flexible and accommodating for Lexi's first dog vacay! Thanks, Darcy!
This was our first time leaving our dogs with someone new and Darcy was incredible! We have an older dog who struggles with anxiety so we preferred for Darcy to stay at our apartment while we were gone. Darcy was extremely responsive before the actual trip and even made a visit to our place to introduce herself to the dogs. We really appreciated also all the questions she asked us. It made us so much more confident knowing that she pays attention to details in the way that only dog lovers do. While we were gone Darcy also sent us regular photos without us needed to ask! Puff and Hela had a great time and we will definitely be asking Darcy to watch them again!

Darcy was great! She was so friendly and accommodating and went out of her way to make sure Archie had the best time with her. She sent me updates and pictures all the time and was very flexible about drop off and pick up. Thank you Darcy!
Darcy was absolutely fantastic with my dog! She's exceptionally detailed about his needs and sent me photo updates multiple times a day. He came home happy and rested!

Darcy was awesome! I am a nervous mama and I hardly leave my dogs with anyone. So when my rarely used dog-sitter moved, I was in a bind , close to the last minute and panicking a little bit. Darcy's communication was excellent before we met and she was patient with my scheduling issues that we occurring in the beginning. While I was away, she managed my senior pug's medication well even though it is a lot of work and a semi confusing routine. Darcy sent lots of pictures and a video to show me that my best buddies were safe and happy. I can see in my dog's faces in the photos that's she taking care of them in a kind and loving way! I will definitely use Darcy again when I go out of town, because her care is just that, caring!

Darcy is wonderful, and our dog simply adores her! Wonderful care, easy communication, and most importantly, she genuinely loves being with the dogs. I never worry a moment when Tally is with Darcy, and I always return to a happy, healthy pup, totally worn out from lots of love and fun. Thank you, Darcy!

Darcy was great with my pup, and seemed really enthusiastic and welcoming. We had a bit of a scheduling mishap but she handled everything very professionally, and I would not hesitate to use her again!
We have LOVED having our dog stay with Darcy. Even when our dog was recovering from surgery, she did an excellent job of caring for her, and we love all the photos. Darcy is moving out of the neighborhood and we're at a loss for how to live our lives without her! Residents of Park Slope: Darcy is a FANTASTIC sitter and will love your dog as if he or she were her own.

Darcy is awesome - she not only loves dogs, but communicates very frequently while I'm away via text and picture messaging. I know Lulu is in great hands when she's with her!
Darcy is the best! She took such great care of Draper. She took him to the park and sent me pictures and updates multiple times every day. Cannot recommend her enough!
Darcy was an excellent sitter yet again! My dog was very excited to see Darcy and be in her apartment again. When we dropped him off he was wagging his tail and finding new toys to play with! Darcy took him to the park and she gave me regular updates and pictures so I felt he was having a great time. Thanks again Darcy!

We keep booking with Darcy because she's wonderful! She obviously cares about our dog just as much as we do.
I cannot say enough good things about Darcy. I had a family emergency and she was kind enough to take in my dog Draper even after watching him for three days the prior week. She sent multiple updates throughout the day and was just an all around fantastic pet-sitter. My dog came home happy and well-cared for. I would highly recommend her!

Darcy was a wonderful host for my cocker spaniel Sketchy. She sent me plenty of updates every day, and when I got stuck in Atlanta due to the snow she was very flexible in keeping him for extra time until I was able to get back to the city. I am so grateful to have found such an amazing host who made Sketchy so happy. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Darcy was an amazing host to our French Bulldog, Otto, this past weekend. She was flexible arranging times drop off and pick up and had no problem giving Otto his medicine for his allergies. She sent us picture and text updates of Otto everyday keeping us up to date on his stay! We really appreciated that -- it's great to see your dog having fun and happy even when you are away! Definitely would recommend and plan on using Darcy again when we go out of town and can't take our dog! Thank you! :)

She did a great job with my dog and kept me up to date on his adventures over the weekend. I'd definitely use her again.
We absolutely adore Darcy! She's so flexible about drop-off and pick-up, sends photos every day (often multiple times a day!), and possibly loves our dog just as much as us at this point. Highly recommended!
Darcy was an amazing pet sitter for our dog, Aix. When Aix got sick while we were away, Darcy called our vet and made him homemade chicken and rice. I think Aix appreciated the TLC more than we did :) We will not hesitate to use her again if needed. She went above and beyond our expectations.

Darcy is FANTASTIC. She takes our dog on so many walks and plays with her and sends photos every single day. For this stay, we were out of the country without consistent Internet access for ten days and I didn't worry once about whether or not our dog was happy and healthy. Darcy loves her like she's her own!

Darcy is wonderful!!! She provided updates on Lily all weekend and sent adorable pictures. We were absolutely assured our little dog was in great hands. We will use Darcy again whenever she is available! Thank you!!
Darcy was terrific! My dog couldn't have had a better stay and the updates and photos of his time away were perfect! We can't wait for the next visit!
I can't think of anything about Darcy that we'd change! She's friendly and accommodating, takes our dog to the park frequently, and sends tons of photos. She's always our first choice when we need a sitter!
Darcy was Wonderful!!! She took awesome care of Nina while I was a way, sent me lots of pictures and texts on how she was doing. Professional, on-time and thorough in terms of asking about what Nina needed. Would HIGHLY recommend her!!
Darcy was absolutely wonderful. Having just moved to the city, I was anxious to leave my "baby" with someone I didn't know. But from the beginning, Darcy made me feel comfortable and took terrific care of Lily Belle. She sent pictures and updates every day, and I could relax and enjoy my vacation knowing she was in excellent care. Lily came home happy and healthy! I fully recommend Darcy as someone who is responsive and responsible, and gave my doggie loving care

Scooter had such a great time with Darcy! She was super accommodating and you can tell how much she enjoys spending time with her furry visitors. I got lots of photos of his trip and when I picked him up he was literally smiling ear to ear. Will definitely use Darcy in the future! :)

We just wrapped up another series of awesome weekend visits with Darcy, and she was phenomenal for each one! Russell loves staying with Darcy and she continues to be exceptionally flexible and accommodating :) Thank you!! We will be back!
Darcy was a great host, who went out of her way to keep us updated on how our dog was doing. You could tell she has a lot of experience taking care of dogs, and I felt at ease leaving our little guy with her. Would definitely love for Darcy to dog sit again for us in the future.

Thanks!
Darcy continues to be the best! She is our go-to host and have used her multiple times now.
We love Darcy -- and so does Diffie! She's always our top choice for sitters whenever we leave town. She sends tons of photos and our dog always has a great time. I think Darcy loves our dog almost as much as we do!
Darcy was amazing! My 7 year old, spoiled, momma's boy Jackson, often gets in a serious funk whenever I have to go out of town but Darcy made him feel right at home, I would recommend her to anyone! I was 100% confident that he was in good hands, she sent me daily e-mails and pictures of Jackson, I could see that he was genuinely happy & enjoying his time with her. I will definitely be using her in the future! Thank you, Darcy!!!

Darcy was great and my dog Henry had a great time with her. She send loads of photos and updates which really helped because my dog is nervous to be left. Darcy was also helpful and flexible while we sorted out the weekday situation. She works outside the home and my dog normally gets a walk midday. All in all, she was a great hostess and Henry adored her!

We never use any sitter other than Darcy anymore -- she's perfect for our dog.
Darcy is the best! This is the second time Simon has stayed with her, and we've already booked her for future stays. She is so caring and such a good host. She lives right next to the dog park too, so Simon always comes back exhausted from the weekend!

Diffie had another great stay with Darcy! She's so flexible and sweet and sends TONS of photo updates -- and she even sent our dog home with a toy as a present! We highly recommend Darcy.
Darcy took care of both of our dogs for over a week and we couldn't have been more thrilled. She sent us videos and pictures every single day. My dogs definitely have quirky personalities and she was able to cater to those quirks immediately and made them feel right at home. Our flight home was delayed and she very accommodating. We are a team Darcy family for life.

Darcy has been a fantastic sitter for my girl Lady. She sends me photos from their walks and updates me every day on how Lady is doing. Couldn't ask for a better dog sitter.
Darcy is fantastic! She kept me updated on how my girl Lady was doing and sent me pictures each day. I didn't worry for one second about Lady.
Another great experience with Darcy! We arrived to find she'd bought a toy for our dog in anticipation of her visit. She sent tons of photos, took our dog for at least one walk a day, and remembered all of our dog's weird habits and preferences (like wanting to hang out underneath furniture). I'm convinced Darcy loves our dog as much as we do!

Darcy is fantastic. She sends plenty of photo and video updates and probably treats my dog better than I do! She was also extremely accommodating of a few last-minute changes to my plans this time around. I highly recommend her!
Darcy was a phenomenal host for our dog, Russell! She sent several photo and video updates during his stay to show us how well he was doing and included fun little anecdotes about what they had been up to.

She was also very flexible with drop off and pick-up times, even extending the reservation for an extra night at the last minute when our return flight was cancelled! She was great and easy to work with and, most of all, Russell was one happy pup :)

We will absolutely be working with her again.

Darcy was awesome. She watched our pup over the weekend, and he came back exhausted, which is always a great sign. She clearly loves dogs and was very generous with the number of photos (and videos) she sent us over the weekend. Would certainly recommend her.

Darcy was the best! She took such great care of Simon. She took him to the park every day and sent us pictures and videos multiple times every day. Simon seemed sad to have to come home at the end of the weekend!
My dogs loved staying with Darcy. She took them to the park and treated them like a family member. She was also very easy to work with and gave me confidence that my dogs were in good hands.
Darcy was great! She was really helpful in taking us as a last-minute reservation over a holiday weekend and she sent tons of pictures of our dog while we were gone! Our dog had a great time.
