About Blanca

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My full time employment is taking care, walking and dog grooming. Our home is situated in a very dog friendly community; close to Brookdale park area which also has a Dog park.

Many of our neighbors are clients of our dog walking and boarding service. Our large fenced in yard provides a safe and secure area so that your dog will be able to run and play to their hearts desire.

Our dog visitors also receive walks. A well exercised dog is a happy dog. :)

We offer drop off and pick up service, dog walking, overnight boarding, long term care, bathing and daycare service.
Also we have our grooming area.

We truly love animals! Currently, we don't own any pets, so we truly look forward to doggy visitors. We will take care of your pet as if they are our own.

As such we provide constant updates via text, email messages, photos and videos.

In addition, I have experience in caring for dogs that have medical problems and require special attention and oral medication to be administered. I also dedicate a lot time training the puppies and my family assists as well. I have experience with dogs with emotional issues, that come from an abusive situation or have gone through traumatic experiences. At times I have performed Reiki on dogs to calm the anxiety and restlessness some dogs may be experiencing.

We usually have activity in the back yard daily, like playing fetch, and tugging rope. The dogs also play with one another. Sometimes, we
provide massages, a relaxing bath while other times we play soothing music for the dogs to feel relaxed. The dogs are also given a lot of attention and we even converse with the dogs like Dr. Doolittle.

Currently, we offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

You will enjoy Yappy Days Dog Care.

Our Boston Terrier was very well cared for!
Thank you Blanca V for providing my dogs with excellent service. You did an amazing job, I appreciate it!
Our dog Stella loved her time with Blanca. It was nice getting photos and updates on how Stella was doing while we were away. We knew she was in great hands.
I was very pleased with the care and patience with which Blanca cared for my fur baby, Chloe. Chloe, as a fairly recent, rescue is still highly anxious with new people and environments. Blanca's love and knowledge for dogs is readily apparent. She and her family were attentive and caring. I appreciated receiving a call with an update of how Chloe was doing, and of course the pictures, she sent, both of which did much to relieve my anxiety about leaving her.

Winston was happy and exhausted after his stay with Blanca! He had puppy friends to play with, and a loving home to stay in. We got lots of pics of his adventures which made me feel so much better!
Blanca was a godsend for our special needs pup! Truly. Blanca is an angel. Our dog's special needs often cause us to hesitate when planning vacations because we are always nervous to leave her behind under any circumstances. Now that we know Blanca, we will be much less hesitant. We know now that we can leave our special girl with Blanca without needing to worry about anything. We will definitely be back!

Blanca and her sister made my fur baby feel right at home. She gives good pet advice and seems to be very knowledgeable with dogs. I'm going to use her again!
Blanca was very caring with Andy, who is an older dog who doesn't make dog friends easily.
Blanca kept us updated while Andy was there and took very good care of him.
Blanca was great with Louie, and very accommodating to our schedule which was a bit up in the air due to moving. We'll definitely be repeat customers!
This was our first time doing any dog-sitting with our 8 month old puppy. We were nervous but Blanca was very comforting. We met with her before committing and we were very comfortable with everything we saw. She offers 24/7 supervision and has an enclosed yard in the back. She has her family on the premises with her during the day. She had a few other dogs on the premises which helped with the socialization. Blanca is very experienced and patient and willing to customize her approach to the specific needs of our puppy. Our dog came home exhausted from all the play and running in the back yard. We will definitely use Blanca again and highly recommend you meet with her to see for yourself.

Blanca is the best! Our dog Bennie stayed with her for a week when we went to San Francisco. We'd never left him with anyone (he was almost 18 months old) and I was very anxious. Once I saw Blanca's house, I felt a lot better. It's comfy and clean, there's a huge, fenced-in yard, and Blanca is a warm, reassuring presence. Blanca sent us pictures of Bennie every day, playing with other dogs, hanging out with her family. It really allowed me to relax and enjoy our vacation.

Blanca is warm and friendly, flexible and accommodating, professional and a sincere animal lover. Even though my Yorkie dog, LuLu, is senior and has some health issues. She cannot see things well, too. I felt completely comfortable and at ease leaving LuLu with Blanca, because Blanca is just so attentive to the well-being of your pet. She made sure to send me pictures throughout LuLu's stay, it made me happy to see the pictures while I was out of town for getaway trips. Blanca has a lovely house and fenced backyard. I felt very safe leaving my dog with her. After my return trip, I brought LuLu home and everything went well with her so far. Whenever I plan to go away again, I would definitely give my precious LuLu to Blanca again, because I trust Blanca for being wonderful pet-sitter. Thank you, Blanca!

We had a very good impression of Blanca during our meet and great, she demonstrated a lot of knowledge about dog behavior and health. During her stay, the daily photo and text updates reassured us. Eva's eye became inflamed during her stay, and Blanca contacted us and brought Eva to her veterinarian promptly. When we picked Eva up she was playing happily with the other dogs. Blanca took great care of Eva, giving us ease of mind to enjoy our vacation.

I was reluctant to bring my dog to ANYONE when I was going away for a little over a week. I was very worried with now my baby would be treated since I've never had anyone care for him outside of my own family. I found Blanca very last minute and she was more than accommodating. I met with her about a week before I went away and she was extremely comforting. She showed me around her home and reassured me everything was going to be fine. Her home is clean and tons of people bring their dogs to her for overnight stays and day care. The two times I went to see Blanca (dropping off and picking up), there were multiple dogs there and some returning customers! Blanca sent me pictures throughout my trip and constantly kept in touch with me through any app available since I was away on an international trip. Being in different time zones had me worried but she was extremely responsive to me and my friend who was my emergency contact. At the time of pick up, Blanca gave me a full report on how he did and what she was concerned with. I would highly recommend meeting Blanca for your doggy needs! Trust me when I said I had separation anxiety when it came to dropping off my dog. I was worried about him all day and couldn't stop thinking about how he would be with other dogs. Throughout my trip, I slowly began to let loose knowing he was in good hands!

Blanca is awesome!
I can't thank Blanca & her family enough for taking such good care of our little boy Bently and for always updating us with pictures and texts on how he was doing. This was Bently's first mini vacay and he had such a great time running around freely with all the other dogs and then snuggling at night with Blanca. He even shared his favorite blanket with one of his girlfriends! I look forward to using Blanca's services in the future for vacay and possibly daycare. I highly recommend Blanca and Yappy Days for a very happy dog and parent! Thank you again!!

I was a little worried since Monkey had only stayed with one other person since he had been a puppy! We went to visit Blanca, and she made us feel comfortable right away. She introduced herself and some of her doggy guests and Monkey took to her. On the morning I had to leave town, I dropped him off early. Blanca was prepared, knew where his crate was going to be positioned in the house, and made sure we brought everything that Monkey would need. She sent me pictures of him m everyday and let me know his activities. Monkey was very happy with her and we will use her again for sure. Thanks , Blanca, for making Monkey feel so comfortable!

This was a great experience for both us and Rocky. We were away for a week and didn't have to worry about anything, Blanca and her family are great !!!! From drop off, Rocky fit right in, he didn't even look back. The communication and pictures each day were also great, kept us very comfortable seeing he was in good hands. When we picked him up he was very sad to leave, he made new friends and still misses them.
We will definitely being using DogVacy and especially Blanca for Rocky's vacations.

This was my first time using Dogvacay.. it was the best experience. Very nice and friendly. The atmosphere was as if my little was right at home. Definitely using her again. Highly recommended!
Blanca provided another wonderful stay for our dog Callie. She stayed in touch each day, sending pictures and describing the activities and contact with the other dogs. Blanca's household is warm and loving and we are very grateful for the care she provided. Thank you!

Blanca was the better than I could have ever imagined. She truly cares about what she does and she kept me updated throughout the entire time. I knew my puppy was in good hands as soon as I met her. She will be the only one watching my pup other than me and my family. Thank you Blanca for being so kind and taking care of our Django!

Blanca is fabulous and took wonderful care of our dog. She and her whole family loves and understands dogs and made our dog feel immediately comfortable. Thank you!
Jasmine had a fantastic time. Highly recommended.
Our 2 beagle girls had the best time with Blanca and her family. And with her other visiting dogs, they were in canine heaven!

Blanca and her family kept our girls entertained all day, with much love and care, with many updates throughout the day and night. She accommodated our last minute request with much love and understanding.

She has a fabulous home and a backyard that is just heavenly for all of her visiting guests. Definitely a find for us! Gracias Blanca!

Blanca was wonderful! She was a great dog sitter who worked through Ginger's anxiety at first and made her comfortable and happy. Ginger had a great stay and was able to socialize with other canine guests. We would definitely use Blanca again!
This was Tootsie's second stay with her new mommy, Blanca. She was with Blanca for eight days. She sent us daily pictures of Tootsie enjoying her stay all snuggled up and wrapped up in a blanket in her doggie bed! From the moment we met Blanca, we felt comfortable with her and her well-kept home and backyard. Tootsie is a Jack Russell who loves lots of exercise and Blanca took her for daily walks and socialized her with other dogs. We also decided to have Blanca groom Tootsie and we can't believe how beautiful she looks and smells! She was so well rested and calm when she returned home. She is even less aggressive around other dogs in the building since Blanca socialized her a lot. We love that she has a backyard since Tootsie needs lots of exercise and loves to play outside. We would highly recommend Blanca who loved our dog as her own.

Great stay for Ella. Blanca was professional and on time for us. For Ella there was lots of love and she came home calm and happy.
What can I say about Blanca???? She is the BEST!!!! I mean the BEST!!! This was our first time leaving Zoe behind, and she made us feel very comfortable. Right from the meet and greet until we picked Zoe up. Blanca made sure to keep me updated daily with numerous photos. She also answered any questions that I had (which was a lot) lol.. She kept Zoe busy at the dog park and treated her like she was a member of her own family. Zoe had never been around other dogs, and Blanca socialized her with the other dogs very nicely. Blanca even threw a birthday party for one of the other dogs and sent me the cutest pictures of Zoe with a bow in her hair. Zoe enjoyed her vacation and my family enjoyed ours. I would definitely recommend Blanca any day. She is truly a professional who loves what she does. Blanca treated Zoe like a princess and I will forever be grateful for that:)

My puppy loves it at Blanca's! She's been there three times now and each time seems to be having a blast! Blanca takes such good care of my puppy, and she gets to play with other dogs all day--she's so happy and tired when she comes home. I'd definitely recommend Blanca for doggie day care!

Left our two puggles for 9 days with Blanca and very happy with the stay. Our previous boarder, the dogs always came back sick and didn't get to go outside. Blanca has an large fenced in yard and also took the dogs to the dog park every day. Also received daily photo's which we loved! She kept us up to date with how they were doing. They had free run of her house it seemed and played with other dogs. They got daily exercise and interaction. We will be using Blanca from now on.

My dogs absolutely adore Blanca. From the moment we entered her house for the first time, my dogs felt at home, including my special needs dog who is very cautious of strangers and new environments.

Not only does she have a spotless, dog-friendly home with a huge fenced in backyard and indoor play area, Blanca went above and beyond my expectations by bringing my dogs to the nearby park for a long walk and to the local dog park. She sent picture updates of what the dogs were doing throughout the day as well.

My dogs have been giving me the "you're boring" look everyday since they've stayed with Blanca! They're looking forward to seeing her again very soon.

Blanca was a great host to my dog Bella. She kept me posted as to what activities Bella was doing(sleeping, eating , playing). She send pictures to me throughout the day of Bella. I would definately recommend Blanca to anyone who is looking for a place for their dog while away on vacation. I was not worried about Bella at all. Bella was treated great and she will definatley be going back to visit Blanca.

Blanca was very responsive and took great care of our dog, Lloyd. After our meet-n-greet, we knew Lloyd would be in good hands! Anyone can see that Blanca truly loves dogs and is committed to providing excellent care. She sent us daily updates with pictures and answered all our text messages. Lloyd loved playing with the other dogs in her spacious, fenced yard. We highly recommend Blanca.

WOW!, we could not have asked for a better person to take care of our Tootsie. We have never left Tootsie in any ones home so we were a little worried about that.......but from the beginning Blanca was simply great. She explained all details to us and answered all our questions. You could just tell that she really loves her job and really cares for animals. Tootsie as expected from a Jack Russell had a hard time the first night but Blanca with all her experience handled it and .made her feel at home the rest of her stay. Blanca was in touch with us everyday sending us pics of our Tootsie on vacation :) .......I could not asked for a better host.
Thanks Blanca......Tootsie will see you again :)

Blanca was the best host we could have imagined. Bonnie was injured and she administered the med and the supplements. She gave her lots of TLC and by the end of the stay there Bonnie was even able to go to the dog run. I am so grateful to Blanca and recommend her highly.

This was our first time using Blanca and I can't tell you enough what a great experience we had with her and her family. After using a well known boarding facility in our area as well as Rogue's vet we never felt very comfortable about leaving her but thought we had no other choice. Along came DogVacay and Blanca and totally changed our perspective. Blanca was wonderful with Rogue. She always sent us updates on what Rogue was up to and you can easily see her love for dogs. We're so glad we found her and will definitely use her services again!

Our overall experience was far better than I could have imagined! Blanca took such good care of Reggie and gave him so much care and attention. I think our pup had more fun on his vacation than he does at home. That makes me a very satisfied and repeat customer!

Where to begin, well this has been a crazy first six months in part because of the unbearable weather that would not let up and because of circumstances concerning my living situation compounded by the demand of my occupation meant that my life is basically lived in the whirlwind. I had hoped that some things would worked themselves out by at least the month of May because of my sister’s graduation that I was to attend but unfortunately I was greatly mistaken. Originally I had plan on packing up the suitcases that I was already living out of along with Spirit (my beagle), renting a vehicle and driving down to Atlanta. Long story short the vehicle that I rented was not going to be ready in time and my sister ended up changing the schedule to the point that I had to leave earlier than I had wanted or expected to. So luckily given what I do for a living(work in finance) I was able to rearrange my schedule in order to coincide with what my sister had plan however the problem of finding a place that Spirit could reside now became my primary concern. There is one thing I know and that’s analyzing. Prior to leaving I worked probably harder than I ever worked before given the time I had left trying to make sure that I could find Spirit a place where he could be comfortable for the time that I was away. Family members that I would usually relied upon were all going to my sister’s graduation so there was definitely pressure. I’m used to pressure in the financial world given the speed of the market verses the pressure to make sound decisions with considerable amounts on the line simultaneously doing both technical and fundamental analysis along with maintaining strategic plans that most likely would be adjusted depending on the global markets that open earlier than the U.S markets but because I had limited time it made the choices regarding Spirit just that much more imperative. I came across a site (that would later turned out to be DogVacay) while browsing and read the general reviews in my area. What immediately caught my attention was that this was no boarding site for dogs but an alternative. After placing a request I was rejected the first time because of Spirit not being up to date with his shots. I had already schedule an appointment for Spirit to get a checkup anyway before believing that he was coming with me anyway but as always everything literally came down to timing. I finally came across a woman name Blanca who after sending my request first wanted to see the dog which was fine but I was literally running out of time. This was the last day before my train was to depart tomorrow. That day was exhausting because I went from taking Spirit to the veterinarian to Blanca meeting and agreeing to care for my dog all in the same day which was incredible because while she was concern whether or not Spirit was going to be fine with the environment, I was at awe at her house literally being this doggie heaven where I knew that Spirit would be safe. There was everything from a large backyard where dogs could play and do their business to a professional grade grooming area where dogs could get pamper and bathe. In the basement she even had an area for dogs to run around and played for when the weather was less than ideal. The best part was the updates everyday of Spirit in the park or laying down in the kitchen or in his bed just relaxing. Even when I got back and had to extend Spirit’s stay for another week she was incredibly understanding even giving me the same rate which was unexpected and gracious as well. She gave me references to call but I didn’t have to I knew that my dog was in good hands already. She was well verse in the knowledge and nuances of dogs and when we converse she knew exactly what I was talking about in relations to Spirit needs (not that he really had any). I would use her services time and time again. Blanca was truly a Godsend and I’m sorry for not writing this recommendation sooner. Currently in London with Spirit currently in Atlanta (at my sister’s and Aunt house) I thanked you for all that you did in not only reassuring me but making sure that Spirit had that feeling of nothing seemingly changing. Actually Skype Spirit yesterday and I definitely got to get back to the States because my aunt and sister are spoiling him worse than Blanca did buying him matching raincoats and collars. Hell, I didn’t even know it rained like that in Georgia. Thanks again and now I know that there is most certainty a second home away from home where Spirit can be safe and free to run around without the thought of being locked in a cage overnight. Best sitter ever. I can’t thank her enough. Definitely went far above the call of duty. Simply exceptional!

Blanca was great from start to finish. She started by setting up a meet and greet to answer any questions i may have had. gave me a tour of her house and yard to show how my doggie would be staying and also made sure that my dog meet the other dog she was sitting to make sure they got along well.

Through out the stay she provided pictures and updates to show how my dog was doing and was always available. My dog returned exhausted from all the play and exercise he got during his stay. I would definitely recommend Blanca and will be using her services again.

Blanca was wonderful. She made my timid dog feel right at home and treated him like her own. She took him to the dog park and kept him active. She also kept me up to date daily with pictures and messages to let me know how he was doing. We were very happy and he enjoyed his vacation. We will definitely use her again!

Blanca took such great care of our puppy. Rocky being only 3 months old we were nervous about leaving him with someone but Blanca took amazing care of him. She sent us pictures and updates on him throughout his stay and made us feel at ease. Blanca looked like she really loved animals and seemed to love Rocky a lot so we trust her and plan to use her anytime we vacation. So glad we found Blanca!
