About Stephanie

You have to go away & you choose to board your best friend. The thought of boarding them at a kennel stresses both of you. So what now? You call me.

In the comfort of my home your dog will receive the individual attention they deserve. For the days you leave them with me, we will be buddies. We'll go for long walks, have play dates with other dogs, go on small adventures, & relax. You'll be away, so should they.
I have had experience with an array of animals every since I can remember both in a personal and professional environment.

Pet sitting has opened up so many opportunities for me to meet amazing pets and their pet families. I have been very fortunate to have my clientele grow within the last year and my service and reviews speak for themselves. You will not be
disappointed.

Your dog will not be separated from others by a kennel, left alone at night, or plea for individual attention. Instead, they will be able to go outside as much as need, have access to the entire house as they please, and receive undivided attention from myself and other lucky pals. Not to mention I work on basic commands with them. Not too bad if you ask me! Did I mention if you book through here your pet will also be insured?

Please note that although I am flexible on drop off time, pick-up is by noon.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask! :)

Stephanie is great! She kept Sadie active and entertained. If I were still in the area I'd still be using her.
Super easy! Kona was a happy camper and was well cared for.
Stephanie was wonderful to our 2 dogs last weekend. We left them in her excellent care & did not have a worry. She paid great attention to their temperaments & special needs. Her communication with us was fantastic & we will be using her again.
She stayed at our house & left it better then when she arrived & we are grateful as we rushed out the door to catch an early flight.
Thank you Stephanie !

Stephanie provided the love and care we would have provided to our dog in our absence. We really enjoyed the daily photos and videos updates - that was a nice, personalized touch. We would certainly recommend Stephanie's services to other Providence dog owners!

Stephanie has been my go-to babysitter and I can't recommend her enough. She makes sure that she has all the important contact info. and care instructions for my pup, and she sends regular photo updates. My pup is always happy to see her and he always comes home happy, healthy, and relaxed. I'd like nothing more than to keep her to myself but she certainly deserves the kudos. ;) Thanks, Stephanie!

Linus always leaves Stephanie's happy and healthy -- and tired! Always a sign of a good stay. In the past, he has returned home from kennels or boarding facilities with an anxious belly or a lapse in discipline, but not when he stays with Stephanie. I also appreciate the updates via FB, the timely correspondence about reservations, and the willingness to be flexible!

Steph is amazing!!! Bowser is better behaved after spending time with her. Bowser loves going with Steph and Inevert worry about him while we are away. I always know he's in the BEST hands when he's with Steph. Thanks Steph!!!
We were apprehensive about leaving our dog Chrissy with a stranger, but after meeting Stephanie a month prior to Chrissy's stay really silenced any apprehension we had before. We knew we were leaving Chrissy in good, capable hands. Stephanie posted pictures to Instagram to let us see Chrissy, and we were able to see how well-cared for she was, and how happy she looked! Overall, Stephanie was FANTASTIC! She provided excellent service, and really made our first experience with DogVacay great. She was very flexible with our schedule, and even let us drop our dog off on Christmas Eve! We will definitely be using Stephanie's services again!

I can't say thank you enough. Stephanie was kind enough to take our Holly into her home for Christmas. While we missed our pup, we knew she was having a good time while we travelled for the Holiday.

I don't know what all they did, but we had one happy and contented pooch.

Thanks again, Stephanie. We'll call on you again, for sure!

Stephanie seemed like a really nice girl. She sent us cute photos of our dog with regular updates! She's a real pet lover!!
This is about our fourth or fifth stay with Stephanie and words don't even begin to describe how well our dogs are cared for. Reese and Rory have become a part of their family! They both became sick while at Stephanies, she took them to the vet and updated us when we arrived back at home. We never have a worry when they are with her.

Stephanie was amazing! I had my one year old pup stay with her over the weekend. She did so good with him. He seemed to be doing so well when I picked him up.
Stephanie was so good with notifying me about an allergic reaction he had while with her.
She acted fast and took him to the vet on set and made sure it was all taken care of and notified me of everything that was happening with him.
I'm thankful to have left him with her given her loving and caring nature for dogs.
I would not know what I would do without her if that would have happened elsewhere.
Stephanie you are the best!
Leo is doing so well and I have you to thank for that!
Thanks so much!
You're awesome!

Our dogs had a great time with Stephanie & came back well exercised & happy. Thank you!
Stephanie was amazing. She is truly a dog whisperer. She took care of our dog Bowser. Not only that but she could accommodate us last minute and was easy going, trustworthy and professional. He needs a lot of attention and boy did she give it to him. We got Facebook pics and video updates and he was smiling the whole time. He got to hang out with Leo, his new pal, and Stephanie took him walking all over Providence. I think he was a bit sad when we came home:). He couldn't have been in better hands and I 100% highly recommend Stephanie. We will only have Bowser go on Pawtastic vacations now. Thanks Stephanie!

Our dogs had a great week with Stephanie! Great care & lots of love
It's always a little weird to rate something when you weren't there. That said, Jake seemed very happy in the many photos that Stephanie took each day he was there.

Most importantly when it was time to pick up Jake, he was healthy just like when we dropped him off ;-).

Stephanie is the best! Chase had a great time and I know that he was in good hands!
Stephanie was awesome! She took great care of Rusty while we were moving into our house after moving across the country. I never had a doubt he was in good hands!
Amazing as always. Dogs well taken care of, played with and they absolutley adore her.
Stephanie is fantastic! If rom the moment I met her I felt totally comfortable leaving my dog with her. My dog comes home happy and tired. She's the best!
Dogs were so loved while there. She took great care of them and they loved being there. We have found our lifelong doggie sitter!! Thanks Stephanie!!
We were a bit reluctant at first to leave our dog, not because Stephanie wasn't great, but because we are THOSE dog parents. She soon sent us videos and pics of Charlie playing and getting tummy rubs, and it put all of our worries to rest. Little things like that helped us worry less and enjoy our weekend getaway even more. She's eager to exercise your dog and give him/her attention. Thanks Stephanie!

Stephanie rocks. She is accomodating, caring and genuinely loves my pup. I trust her completely and know Ginger is in great hands whenever she goes to stay with her.
