Vanessa put my worries to the side the moment I met her. It was our first time leaving our baby with someone other than family. She sent us daily videos/photos of my girl Brooklyn, which definitely let me know we made the right decision. She has the cutest little Frenchie which was practically Brooklyn’s twin, they quickly became BFF’s! My only fear was that my Brooklyn wouldn’t want to leave Vanessa ...

The Best Home Away From Home

I understand that it can be stressful for a pet parent to go away and leave their fur- baby, whether short or long term. It can also be stressful for the fur baby to be away from their pet parent and the comforts and familiarity of their own home.

I enjoy having the opportunity to provide a safe, pet friendly, clean and comfortable environment for your pup, so as to alleviate the stress and worry ...

When Vanessa watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There are beautiful, grassy parks in my area. These parks are where I prefer to take the pups out to stretch their paws. It provides a lot of open space away from the hustle and bustle of traffic for fun and exercise.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If your fur baby is accustomed to sleeping in your bedroom with you or in another room outside the bedroom, I will accommodate this. I will locate their crate/carrier or bed, which you can provide, in the desired location.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home so I am able to give your fur baby plenty of 1-on-1 time with me. Be it indoor or outdoor fun and recreation.
