Pam was awesome with my 3 boys. She kept in touch, posted pics and treated them like her own. They loved hanging with her while I was gone and I will definitely use her again
Heidi my GSD enjoyed a great 5 nights with Pam. She enjoyed all the walks and belly rubs. I got daily updates with a picture of her. Have also had Heidi and my Border Collie there for day care. I use Pam whenever I need care of dogs in South Bend. I am relaxed knowing my fur babies are well cared for.
Pam is fantastic! I had a personal friend back our of sitting my dogs at the last minute so I contacted Pam, and within 30 minutes, she contacted me back and was ready to pick them up from my home! She clearly cares about the pups she sits for and obviously has experience with dogs of all types and ages. I loved how quick, courteous, and attentive she is. I would 100% recommend and use her again!
Pam was amazing with our Canelo! We have had him for 3 years already. He is a rescue dog, and we are his 3rd home. He is very close to me and I had a lot of anxiety about leaving him with someone. We have never left him with anyone before. After meeting Pam, and seeing her dedication and love for animals my anxiety eased immediately. She texted us every day we where gone and gave us an update. I will definitely have her take care of our pet again! Thank you Pam!! Our dog had a great time with Pam too!!
The sitter was very nice, but had a small home with no fenced in yard
Pam took great care of our 13 year old Labrador!! She sent us daily updates, which we really appreciated, and treated Sherlock like he was her own. Sherlock was very happy during his stay and didn't want to leave!! We would definitely recommend Pam!
Pam was wonderful with our older girl, Daisy Mae! This was our first time using DogVacay, Daisy usually stays with family. This was definitely the next best option! Pam treated her like family. I was sent pictures and pupdates everyday. Daisy was always happy in the pictures! Pam also had no problems giving our girl her medication.
As a nervous dog mom, I was very pleased with the care that Daisy received while staying with Pam! We will definitely use Pam the next time we need a pup sitter!
Pam took care of all 3 (yes, 3!) of my dogs with no hiccups or concerns. I would definitely recommend her. My dogs really seemed to enjoy their time with her :)
I admit that I was a little nervous leaving my 95+ lb energy-filled puppy with someone new for an entire weekend, but Pam wasn't fazed at all and proved to be up to the task! Pam also made sure she followed the rules we had for Henry (like waiting patiently to eat and not giving too many treats). Henry also had a playmate for one of the days, which was a welcome surprise since Henry loves to play with other dogs. Pam also took the time to brush Henry (which is something he loves, but not a task that I ask people to do). That was very sweet of her. It's obvious Pam loves the animals she cares for and I would definitely bring him back.
Pamela was friendly, comfortable around my dogs, and took care of them on very short notice. She sent me a text message with pictures of the dogs enjoying their stay (you can tell by the looks on their faces!), which helped to assure us of their care. Very professional and was keen to ask if we had a preferred vet or not, just in case. Would recommend.
We had never boarded our dogs before so were quite nervous about leaving them. When they met Pamela they seemed so calm and at ease with her. They loved going for walks on the trails in the wooded area behind her home. And felt right at home when she let them sleep in bed with her. Pamela kept us updated every day with a text and a picture of the dogs so we could enjoy our time away. She spoiled them!
Spike and Captain stayed with Pam again and we just love her. The dogs seem happy and tired when we pick them up which makes us happy. We will be back.
Pam watched my chihuahua mix and my pitt for 10 days while we were on vacation. She was more than happy to feed them their usual raw diet and kept them on our routine. She sent daily Pupdates and we were very pleased with her care. We will be using her for future dog sitting for sure!
Pamela took such good care of Gogi and I loved getting pics and updates from her over the weekend. It made me feel a lot better about leaving her knowing she was in such good hands.
Only used her for a day boarding of a few hours, but met all expectations. Would use again.
Pam was easy to work with, and kept us updated.
Very friendly and accommodating. We had no problems organizing this trip and we would definitely use Pam again!
Jack had a great time during his stay. Lots of walks and belly rubs, and thoughtful care by Pam. She was very kind and because of her hospitality and accommodation we all had a great stress-free stay in South Bend.
Pam was excellent as always. I forgot to bring half my stuff as I was in a rush after work to get them over to her. She had plenty of everything they needed and more. Like Katy's Thunder Shirt that I forgot, she had some calming supplements for her and even gave me a baggy of them to make sure she was ok with all the fireworks. I almost don't want to give her positive props, so she is always available when we need her!
Pam was great. I usually use a different sitter, but he was not available. Pam was so accommodating and great to work with. Will definitely use again. Great yard for the pups and Louie was happy and tired!!!
Pam did a great job with our dog! We loved the daily pupdates and knew Bailey was having a great time. We definitely plan on using her again to watch our dog when we are back in the area!
Pam was great! This was the first time I had ever left my Toby with anyone. She sent me pics and updated me as I asked for them with no hesitation. Made me feel so much more comfortable. Will definitely use Pam again and would recommend her to anyone.
Pam is awesome! Every time our dog-child stays with her we can tell that she just has a blast! Actually, when we come to pick her up she just casually greets us then returns to playing with Pam every time, haha. Pam makes us feel very comfortable leaving our baby behind and we wouldn't doubt her for a minute. You can truly see just how much she cares about your pet. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Caido was given great attention and affection. He ate and slept well and she handled his medications. We were very pleased.
Pamela was an amazing host! She watched my dogs during our wedding weekend and made sure they were well taken care of. It was a relief to know that our pups were in good hands.
Amazing host! The "kids" seemed to truly enjoy their stay. The Pupdates she gave everyday included a couple pics one day and were fantastic for me and my kids. I will definitely use Pam again and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Pam was such a great host... she treated our Audrey like her own kid, and was so loving and understanding of what a dog needs when it has to be away from mom and dad for a week. I was really impressed with her and wouldn't hesitate to leave my dog with her again. She sent regular updates while we were on our trip and let us know how Audrey was doing. Wonderful choice for a host if you can't take your pet with you! :)
Pam was awesome! Our puppy, Miley, really liked her from the first time we met her. This really surprised us because she's actually usually pretty hesitant when she first meets people. Pam really lives in a great place for dogs to run and explore. Miley LOVED her yard and ran like crazy during our meeting and while we were picking her up. Pamela updated us on Miley while we were gone and seemed to really handle her well. We definitely plan on using Pam again in the future.
Pamela worked out very well for us. We were comfortable leaving our little beagle, Millie, with her for two days while we attended the Notre Dame football game. She updated us with text messages and had Millie ready to go early in the morning when we picked her up. I would definitely recommend her to others looking for a safe place for their pets to stay.
Pamela was awesome!! My dog loved his stay and got lots of attention. My flight was delayed coming back home, so i wasn't able to pick him up at the original agreed upon time. This was not a problem for Pamela and she was more than accommodating. I will definitely be using Pamela again.
Thanks Again!!!!
Pamela was so very caring with my dog NeNe. Great property for walks. NeNe seems to have enjoyed her time there. Great location near the bypass.
Pamela was super. I was in South Bend for an ND game for one day, and Jack had a blast. He was well taken care of and got a ton of exercise. Pamela even sent him home with his favorite tennis ball. Pamela was flexible about drop-off and pick-up, even as she managed tending to another client's pet cats on the same day. Pamela helped make sure the day in ND was great for everyone, especially Jack!
