About Penny

36 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have my own business in my home, so I am almost always here. I get outside as often as I can and my canine guests love my yard. And because we have very few bugs here in Colorado, if the weather is nice, my back door is usually wide open for them to go in and out as they please. I keep a close watch on those tiny little things - just to make sure a hawk doesn't try to kidnap them!

Dogs are family; they are welcome on my lap, on the couch and on the bed! I have a great yard with a 6 foot fence.

Check out my YouTube Channel: Your Dog Nanny for video!

I love cuddly dogs, old dogs, and young dogs, and even big dogs if they're not too active. A large, active dog would probably be too much for me and my small house. Just to make sure I can meet your needs, I do request a meet & greet before booking.

Another great vacay! Thanks Penny! :)
We are very happy with how quickly Penny was able to squeeze us in for a meet & greet and give our 2 pups a great vacation. Penny has a wonderful, fenced, grassy back yard. Our pups thoroughly enjoyed having an area to romp. I am sure they also loved being able to cuddle up on Penny's furniture in the den. We were happy to get reports letting us know how they were doing. I know our two gave her plenty of well deserved kisses. Thank you, Penny, for being able to accommodate us on short notice.

My girls were right at home with Penny! They can't wait to go back!
Akana had such a good time that she seemed almost depressed to be back home with us. We'll definitely contact Penny again for future stays!
Our two dogs had a great time at Penny's house for our first DogVacay experience. She has a lovely backyard and plenty of space for the dogs. She communicated with us about any concerns during their stay (one of our dogs is a finicky eater!) and we felt completely at ease being 3000 miles away from our pups.

I knew this was going to be a wonderful match from the time I set foot in Penny's house. She was very warm and welcoming to myself and my dog Rosie. It was like being at home for Rosie when we were able to plop her bed down in the living room and have her sleep there for the night. Penny was the best!

Penny was great with Bailey. She was careful to be sure she got her medications and they spent a lot of time together.
This was my first time leaving Alex with Penny. Alex had a great time with a couple of other little dogs about his size. Penny is very kind snd genuinely a dog lover!
Penny and Ed took great care of our dog, and went out of their way to make her comfortable after an emergency surgery. They went above and beyond in our dog's care.
Penny and Ed are wonderful people. We wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.
Penny and her husband are awesome pet sitters. Bella was well cared for and loved! They have a nice backyard with plenty of room for the dogs to roam. I would highly recommend her!
Zoey and Stella had a great stay with Penny. We are new to the area and finding Penny to take care of our four-legged babies while we were moving into our home truly put our minds at ease. Zoey and Stella were treated just like they were home, which they loved. We look forward to having our "girls" stay with Penny the next time we need doggy daycare!

Penny and her husband are wonderful, kind people. We had a dog with special needs and I know it was a hard week for them. They gave both dogs plenty of affection and we could tell when we picked them up that they had been very well treated. We would definitely use Penny again in the future!

This was our puppy's first time away from home and we felt at ease and thankful for the care that Penny provided!
Penny and Ed are very sweet people and my little yorkie just loves going to them! Communication is immediate and she sent us pics of her. There's no question LEXI gets super spoiled there. It's like taking your kid to grandmas because she gets to do stuff we don't let her at home! LOL she loves playing with other doggie buddies!!

Great visit for Zoey! Penny and Ed take great care of her. Thank you!
Penny is a great petsitter and Zoe loves to stay with her. She has a great backyard for the dogs she keeps and Zoe never has anxiety when she goes to stay with Penny for DogVacay. I would highly recommend her!
Penny was great! She took great care of my Sheepadoodle and sent me pictures and videos of her having fun. She accommodated my monster crate and Harli had a ball with the other pups! Thanks so much! Samantha Howard
Another great visit for Zoey with Penny... Thank you so much!
Very accommodating hosts!! Penny and her husband were fantastic and made sure our dog was comfortable, exercised and well looked after. Penny communicated fantastically and we were assured our young dog was in great hands. So much so that we are not sure our dog wanted to leave.

We will definitely book again!! Thank you!!!!

Our dog thoroughly enjoyed her stay with Penny and Ed. You could tell at the meet and greet that she took to them right away, so my family felt very comfortable leaving her for a long weekend. Penny has a wonderful backyard for dogs and her house is very clean and welcoming too.

The best part for us is that Penny allowed Onyx on her furniture. We are a family that allows our dog to lay on the couch, bed, etc. She is tiny and has been known to hop up elsewhere too (window sills, tables, etc.), so I searched for a host who would not mind this. I think being able to cuddle on Penny's couch definitely made Onyx feel right at home.

Penny updated us with pictures and text messages, so my daughters could see how their fur sister was doing. Onyx is booked for an almost 3 week stay with Penny in the near future. I feel so glad knowing she will not be sitting in a boarding kennel somewhere without her favorite bed or cage and with only a couple trips outside a day. At Penny's I know it's the next best thing to being at home!

Penny and her husband took wonderful care of our dog and treated her as if she were their own. I would absolutely recommend her and will not hesitate to use her again in the future.
We were thrilled with Penny and Ed, even more importantly, so was our dog! Their home is lovely, quiet, and clean, and their backyard is a dog's paradise with plenty of grass to run, covered patio, and a soothing water feature. Our dog is a special case as she is a new rescue and had been in an abusive and neglectful situation. We have only had her two months and she's cautious to trust people. Not only did she trust Penny and Ed, she THRIVED!!! It was so comforting to learn through their updates and pictures that she was showing her true colors. When we picked her up she was happy, bonded, and it was clear that connections had been made. We will absolutely bring our little girl back to Penny and Ed's for quality care, socialization, and peace of mind! Thank you both!

Penny was amazing, they had my puppy for 2 weeks. I will always try to use Penny when ever possible. What a loving and passionate home.
Penny did a fabulous job watching our dog Waffles. She took the time to meet with our dog before we left him so we would be comfortable with the situation. She was kind and caring. Thanks!
She really cared for and loved our dog. I wouldn't hesitate to have her watch our dog again in the future. Thank you!
Penny, was amazing as she took great care in watching Baby our boxer. There house is warm and full of love, they have a large back yard that is kept pristine condition. She was great about sending me texts with pictures to keep me informed and allow me to see how happy my Baby was. I will always check with Penny first to see if she has an openning before going someplace else.

5 stars all the way. What a great couple Penny and her husband are and took really good care of Tank & Maggie May. When I called Penny always answered the phone, never had to leave a message and wait for a call. If I texted her she always responded not only with text but w/pictures as well!!! She did a wonderful job and cannot wait to have them watch Tank & Maggie next time I take a trip. Truly put my mind at ease!!! Thanks again for everything you were truly amazing!! :)

Zoe had a good time at Penny's and seemed very comfortable with her surroundings when I picked her up. There were two other dogs there and Zoe got along well with them. She will be going back to Penny's next week. I am very happy that I found Penny!

Penny is so wonderful and caring for our Doggie! We set up a meet-n-greet and she was more than accommodating with our schedules. She instantly cared for our Sheltie and I knew within seconds it was a great match! We were able to contact her anytime, even with our weird schedule, and she promptly responded. We highly recommend Penny and will surely use her in our future endeavors. Thank You So Much!!

Penny was fantastic and I highly recommend her. I got pictures and videos while I was gone for the week. It was the best vacation my dog ever had away from me. We found a winner.
Penny took fabulous care of our dog! She has a perfect enclosed back yard for playing and everything is so clean and neat. Love the fact that our dog didn't have to stay in a kennel. It's clear they are dog lovers and treated Raffy as if she was their own. I would highly recommend her, as does our dog Raffy!
