About Adelaide

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*This is my old profile information from New Orleans. I will be updating it shortly*

My boyfriend and I work from home, so we'll be with your pet 24/7. We have a secure fenced in backyard (see photos), and our home is a New Orleans style shotgun house. Until we're ready for a second dog of our own, we'll "adopt" your furbaby for a day, a night, or even a few weeks!

We treat all visiting pups like family, so please send me a message introducing yourself and your pup, so we can see if you're a good fit for our pack!

We have had our 4 year old dog Pepper since she was 12 weeks, and she loves making new friends.

Pepper has separation anxiety, so we know what it's like to worry about how well your dog is being taken care of at a typical doggy daycare facility. We'll send you lots of photos and videos during your dog's stay so you can relax during your trip! Your pup will get lots of love and care from us while you're gone.

We have a membership to City Bark, a nearby off-leash dog park, and we love to go for on-leash walks on Bayou St. John by our house.

Your dog *must* be neutered or spayed (unless under 6 mos old), and must be up to date on all shots and flea medication (please bring shot records with you for the meet and greet). Please supply your own food, food bowl, treats, and dog bed. We do not crate Pepper at night or when we leave the house, so if your dog prefers a crate, you'll need to supply one for us to use.

We are happy to take care of puppies under one year of age, as long as your puppy has received its shots and been tested and treated for worms. Please understand that dogs under a year require much more care than older dogs, so a crate is absolutely necessary, and a harness (not a flat collar) is requested for your puppy's safety and comfort. We will add a non-negotiable $10 onto overnights for puppies to cover the supplies (Nature's Miracle, Bitter Apple, Paper Towels, chew toys, etc.) and extra care a puppy requires.

Finally, as a precaution, we require a meet and greet before bringing your Pup into our home, on the off chance your dog and Pepper don't get along (she loves 99% of new friends, but we like to be extra careful).

Can't wait to meet you and your pup!

(Note: at this time, I only offer sitting for dogs; I don’t currently accept cats. Thank you!)

PS - If you include the password "Harlan Peppercorn," in your first message to me, I'll know you took the time to read through my profile, and I'll give you $10 off your first night!

The best! Gambit had a great time with Pepper, and I think would probably prefer to live there :-)
Adelaide and Casey are the best. They are both genuine dog lovers that always make me feel totally comfortable leaving Guinness while I am on vacation. Adelaide sends photo updates everyday and is extremely flexible with pick up and drop off times. I am extremely thankful for Adelaide and Casey.
Always happy repeat customer every time! they are the best!
I can tell my dog had a wonderful time at Adelaide's! She sent plenty of pictures where I could see him having fun on his walks, and he had to run around and see everyone again before he was ready to leave. He loves to play with Pepper, too. Pierre will definitely be coming back to stay. :)
Odin seemed to have a great time!
This was the first time we were able to use dog vacay. We were lucky to find such awesome hosts and in our neighborhood. No stress or anxiety when we picked them up as we have experienced in the past at boarding. Such a great option. Thank you!
Bart had the time of his life! We will definitely be using Adelaide again.
HE was happy! I was happy! And from pix, Adelaide sent, it seems like SHE and his dog-buddies were all happy, too! Adelaide communication enough, but not too much. Allowed us to spend a few happy and relaxing days in NOLA. I'll definitely board with Adelaide again!
Adelaide and Casey are awesome! From the very first meet n greet forward, they always treat Booda as their own dog--they welcome him into their home with excitement for his stay! Their positive energy and consistent updates make me feel very comfortable leaving my sensitive dog with them for short or long stays. I know for certain that he is getting just as much love as their own dog, Pepper. I'd highly recommend Adelaide and Casey to anyone who is unsure of leaving their dog with a stranger!
Adelaide and Casey are the best. We will continue to use them regularly. I love getting cute photos and having my mind at easy while I'm away. Sam Zoe and Deuce come back happy and healthy.
We are so happy that we found Adelaide......and so is Ike! He enjoyed his weekend with her and we were so pleased that he was so well taken care of! I highly recommend the "Work-at-Home Dog Lovers"! It was so great getting photos and texts while we were away! Thanks guys! Wish I could give more than 5 stars!!!
Adelaide and her husband were absolutely fantastic! We needed a last minute sitter and they were more than accommodating. She sent picture updates of our dog having a wonderful time, which we really appreciated. We were very happy with our overall experience! Thanks again!
I will stay every time. I think this is time 6. Casey and Adelaide are the best.
Adelaide was awesome! You can tell she truly loves dogs and enjoys having playmates around for her pup. I have no doubt that my dog was well cared for while I was gone and she got plenty of playtime and love. She sent plenty of photos during the stay, so I knew my girl was having fun and had a lot of company. I feel great about leaving my dog with Adelaide and probably will do so again in the future!
Adelaide and Casey are amazing. We will schedule our trips around when they are available. I feel completely relaxed and they are the best. 5 time recurring customer booking again soon.
I'm always happy with Adelaide! I didn't know I needed daycare until the last minute and she had no problem taking Creole. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Romo is very high maintenance. Adelaide took care of him like he was her own. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Adelaide's house is Nica's paradise. So happy! Thanks for all the updates and pics!
Adelaide is wonderful! Henry has a great time every time he goes to her house.
Adelaide and Casey are the best. I travel without a worry for my elderly dogs and they come back feeling great. They love Pepper and we will continue to use them over and over again. Thanks!
Adelaide and Casey are great. Tillie loves going over there. They are very flexible in drop off and pickup times and last minute arrangements. I love that they work from home and they have a dog of their own. Tillie is never alone. Tillie is on a grain free diet and they are mindful of that and take time to feed her separately. I definitely recommend them!
Adelaide was great! This was our first time to use DogVacay, and to leave our dog in an unfamiliar setting. She made us feel very comfortable, and I felt confident that, with her and DogVacay, my dog would be in safe hands. We texted each other, she sent photos and a video, and she kept us posted on Madison. I highly recommend DogVacay and Adelaide, I've told several people about the web site and happy we were with this service. I know we will call upon her again in the future. Thanks again Adelaide!!
Adelaide was amazing with my sweet rascal dog! She sent me very sweet texts and funny videos of my pup romping and frolicking around the house with the other playful dogs. My dog obviously had a ball on her joyful vacation and I am so deeply grateful for all the love and kindness Adelaide showed my sweet dog while I was away.
Adelaide was terrific! She's super responsive and Henry had a great time. I will definitely use her again!
Loved that my "baby" could stay in a dog lovers home instead of a kennel. Adelaide was great with Ranger and sent me a picture of him while I was gone.
We tried a few regular daycares across town and our pup was miserable...we don't really know why, but we're lucky we found Adelaide. She is wonderful! Sazerac absolutely loves daycare with Adelaide and Pepper. We live close by, and while walking past her house Saz insisted on pulling us back towards Adelaide's house (this is after one day of daycare). We left Saz there for over a week while we went out of town, and Adelaide sent us pics and videos every day so we knew Sazerac was enjoying herself. I definitely recommend her!
Adelaide's house is a little dog paradise. Our 8mon old pup had a blast. Adelaide was super caring and communicative during the stay. She also troubleshooted with us as Nica settled into to the new environment. We got a number of hilarious and cute photos showing us how our boy was doing. Its like doggie summer camp. I wish I could go!
We never worry when the dogs are with Adelaide! They are so happy! Our time #4 with many more to come
Adelaide was great! She was able to take Oscar sort of last minute and he seemed to have a great time!
Adelaide was a great sitter. Teddy was happy to go back for a second day of sitting. I think he felt just like he was at home only better because besides people there were dogs! I was so happy to find a sitter who is with the dogs all day .
Adelaide was awesome as usual. We appreciate them so much and will continue to use them over and over again. Our pups return happy healthy and exhausted!
Creole goes to daycare weekly with Adelaide and I'm always super pleased with her visits. Creole drags me to the front door at every drop off so I know she's happy to go there too :) Adelaide keeps me updated throughout the day with photos of what they're up to and she's always quick to let me know if Creole has an accident, or seems sick in anyway. Pepper, the in house doggy resident, has a great temperament & seems to get along with all the dogs that come through to stay with Adelaide. I'm super fortunate to have found them. Five star doggy hotel for travelers!
Our puppy, Rainey, had an amazing time with Adelaide and Pepper! We also had a fantastic experience. We visited NOLA for the first time and drove from Austin with our puppy. We appreciated that Adelaide was very accommodating and flexible with drop off time and in/out privileges when we wanted to take Rainey with us at some dog friendly city outings. We are definitely going to book with her again on our next NOLA visit. Actually, we were so impressed that we started recommending her services to our friends who are dog parents for their respective visits to NOLA.
Adelaide was a wonderful host, and our dog Bacon came home happily tuckered out from a week of playing and fun. I would definitely use Adelaide's services again and highly recommend her!
My wife and I were a little apprehensive about leaving our 1-year-old puppy with strangers for a day, but it couldn't be helped. Adelaide's home is inviting, her dog Pepper is friendly and patient, and she worked around my (insane, that day) schedule for a 12-hour dog sitting. She sent cute pictures by text throughout the day ("proof of life") and just generally made the whole thing fantastic. We won't be using anyone else to watch our dog ever if we can help it - it's Adelaide only from now on. Highly, highly recommend.
I was very happy with Creole's stay with here. Adelaide took the time to send me photos and videos of Creole playing with the other pups and sleeping from a long day of fun. Creole looked happy and at home in the videos which made me feel very comfortable leaving her there. Creole is also deaf and Adelaide took the time to learn her language so she could communicate with my dog which I appreciate SO SO much. I'm very happy over all and will be a reoccurring customer for sure!
Adelaide is great. Tillie loved her. I have used her twice now and been very happy. She is flexible with pick-ups and drop-offs and I like that she works from home so Tillie is not left all day long!
Franklin had another wonderful time with Adelaide. Thanks so much for taking such great care of him!!
Adelaide was amazing as always. This is our 2nd stay and we've already booked a 3rd! We love Pepper and family!
Adelaide was great as usual! I've found my dog's home away from home for sure. She takes wonderful care of my pup and sends me the best photos and videos. This time around, I had a travel snag which delayed my arrival to New Orleans until very late at night. Adelaide was able to watch Franklin another night so that I didn't have to worry about getting him in the wee hours of the morning. I highly recommend her!!
Being a fellow host on dogvacay, I'm very impressed with Adelaide ' s prompt response and her hospitality for our puppy. She was super flexible with our drop off hour and pick up time. Knowing she is there for our puppy, I will come to New Orleans more often and will bring my puppy with us on the drive =))
Adelaide is legit. My dog was happy and well cared for during his time at Adelaide's house and, to top it off, she's got some mad dog photography skills :). I highly recommend her!!
Adelaide was awesome and so communicative. I really was able to enjoy my vacation because I never wondered if the pups were okay. She is clearly a loving pup mom and we are using them again in just 2 weeks. I highly recommend her!
Adelaide is an amazing host. She took great care of our pup Zori, was flexible about drop off and pick up times, sent us tons of photos while we were out of town, and took Zori to the dog park. We could tell she was well-loved while we were gone. Her dog, Pepper, is a total sweetheart and got along famously with Zori. She was definitely sad to leave Adelaide's place when we returned! We will definitely be using her again!
