About Megan

Im a military wife I've recently moved from Austin, Texas to the San Jose area and figured this would help me feel settled in with the community a little more. My home is very well kept and very cozy I've been working with animals for 10 years in and out of animal shelters, There are plenty of animal toys and treats to go around, Plenty of neighborhood access for nice long walks and several dog parks in walking distance. Your Furry friends would never be left alone I'm always home if not there's always a backseat for car rides! Gonna be gone for a while I'll send you updated pictures of your furry friend enjoying his/her stay!

Some extra info on my dog Mayzie-
We rescued her from a shelter in Austin, Tx she was very scared and un socialized. She would not play with toys nor other dogs, It was very sad for us to see. We shared some TLC and trained with her for awhile, I must say It has all payed off she is such a fun energetic dog. She loves humans and having other dogs around, she shares her bones and toys and will give you a million kisses.

We would love to have your pup join our pack!

Megan was awesome with Pecas. Even though our vacation dates changed, she was still very accommodating and reliable. She was able to keep in touch with us, which gave me a peace of mind while we were on vacation. Thank you!
Megan is always so accommodating and friendly; I feel as if I'm dropping the dogs with a friend. Judging by how happy and tired they were when they got home, they must have had a great day. Thanks, as always, Megan!
Marley gives Megan 5 paws! He loved the walks, playing with Mayzie, wall-ball, & of course the king-sized bed!! Megan was absolutely FABULOUS! She was warm, accommodating, & thorough! I immediately felt comfortable & confident that Marley was in great loving hands!! Marley & I are SOO grateful! He had a great time! I knew that when I dropped him off he was "good to go" as his ears went down & his tail began to wag as he greeted Megan for only the 2nd time!!

Megan and Mayzie were so amazing. I was in desperate need of a last minute sitter and she was able to accomodate and did a phenomenal job with my sweet but strong lab-pit mix. I can tell my pooch misses them and had a total blast!
In summary, Megan is amazing and took such great care of our crazy little Boston Terrier.

Details: Megan is super sweet, someone who you just want to be friends with. She's prompt in responding to questions/concerns/etc. She also knows a ton about dogs, doggie care and even doggie medication. She wasn't freaked out at all when I told her about the medical emergency Maebs had right before staying with her. She was super flexible about scheduling a last minute (two week long!!) appointment.

Her dog Mayzie is sweet and SUPER playful, which is perfect for my sweet but super active and playful dog. Megan also takes care of some super chill dogs and they all get along great.

Her current condo is small, but don't let that fool you. She took them on so many excursions I'm pretty sure Maebs is going to be tired for weeks.

This was the first time we had Megan watch the dogs, but it won't be the last! She was very, very accommodating and made them feel welcome right from the start

Based on the pictures Megan sent, they had a blast! They came home healthy and happy, and I wouldn't hesitate to have them stay with Megan again.

Megan earns five-stars plus. If there's such thing as a "dog whisperer" she's it! Her enthusiasm, professionalism and top-notch care for our pooch impress us the most.

It's not just Megan's friendly approach, but her own friendly pup and hubby too...it's a family affair and it shows. Megan is very attune to not just superb dog care, but behaviors as well. She seems to strike up a rapport right away and make a dog feel at home. She does that too well, in fact, for our own pooch seemed reluctant to leave...it's as if our dog was invited to her best friend's slumber party and didn't want it to end.

Megan was very nice to send us a couple of updates on how our dog was doing, as well as some pix of her relaxing in new surroundings. It helped us relax knowing our choice in dog sitters was appropriate and also knowing our pet felt as comfortable on her vacation as we should feel on ours. It's not just a vacation for the owner, but one for the dog as well. Megan runs a five-star "pet resort".

It's our first time to use dogvacay.com as well as Megan's services. We would highly recommend this site to anyone, especially Megan, we'll definitely use her again. ~Jim, Joan and "Cookie"

My pup had a great time! And Megan gave me updates on how he was doing.
After scheduling a meet and greet a few days before our vacation, my fiance and I finally let out a sigh of relief. We couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving our dog Daisy with Megan. Megan had great energy and enthusiasm, checked in with us through text messages and pictures on a daily basis, and she took the job of caring for our dog seriously and with professionalism. She had a wonderful dog of her own that was friendly and played wonderfully with our dog. It was clear that Megan was knowledgeable about dog behavior, social skills, and pet health. Our dog Daisy was relaxed and totally at ease after we picked her up from Megan's, which was a sign she got plenty of exercise and love. It was an absolutely perfect and pleasant experience and I'm glad we no longer have to worry about Daisy while we're away -- we have the utmost confidence that Megan will keep her comfortable and safe!

Megan is amazing! My dog loved it at her place and got very attached to her as well, which is always a great sign. They went on regular walks, visited dog parks, played at home. Polkhan was very well fed and taken care of. He even got a few baths in the time when he was with Megan.

I got regular updates by email from Megan and it helped me with the separation anxiety. Knowing that your puppy is doing great is comforting when you're far away from him.

I'd definitely go with Megan again next time I have to be out of town.

Megan was AMAZING! Our dog is very shy and terrified of new people but when she met Megan at our meet-and-greet, she was instantly playing with her - I have never seen her that friendly. We left her for 2 weeks and during that time, Megan sent us updates and pictures so we won't worry - so cool.
It is such a relief to finally find someplace for our dog where she's that happy. now we can allow enjoy our vacations!

We've used Megan twice now and she always does great job. Our dog really seems to love her and her dog. I also loved that she took cute pictures of my dog and sent them to me while I was away. Totally satisfied - we plan on using Megan's services anytime we need to go out of town and leave our doggie behind.

My dog seemed really happy and looks he had a great time.
I felt very comfortable leaving my dog with Megan. I could tell she loves animals and is really good with her dog. My dog, Pookie, was able to play a lot and Megan even taught her not to eat dog food left out for other dogs, which is awesome! I would happily bring Pookie here again.

Megan is very sweet and nice. She was really good with Israel and I felt so comfortable leaving my pup with her. She texted me updates and photos every day. I would recommend Megan!
Megan was a very kind host right from the start, she was full of energy and very friendly. Her house was very clean, tidy and smelled nice, even though she had 3 other dogs already staying. Our dog Yuki was so happy there that he wanted to stay there since the first meetup. He was so pleased to be there he didn't mind us leaving him, and even when we came back it seemed he didn't want to go at all! ... We know Yuki and he seemed like a very happy dog when we picked him up, like he was smiling all the way and I feel he wants to go back and play. It was definitely a vacation for him too! =D
Also, I must say Megan made an effort to deliver Yuki very clean and smelling good. Even washed his bed!
Thank you Megan for making our dog happy.

Megan was great with Eevee for day care. She was very mindful of him and even texted me to see if he had breakfast. When I arrived to pick Eevee up, he was playing outside like a happy dog. She reported back to me what he did throughout the day which comforted me to know that Eevee was enjoying himself. At home, he promptly knocked out. A tired dog is a happy dog. Will certainly go with Megan again for day care and eventually boarding.

Megan was so good with Sofi. She treated her just like her own dog. I felt extremely confident leaving her with Megan.Megan kept in touch with me, sent me pictures and took her a bath. Pawsome!!!
We went away for Memorial Day weekend and left Maddie our 1 yr old lab with Megan. She is fabulous!! Megan took Maddie on hikes and long walks. I was very nervous to leave Maddie so Megan kept in close contact with me... She sent me texts and even a cute picture. Megan's dog Mayzie is the sweetest. Maddie had a great time and I definitely would use Megan again.
