Thank you Vanessa for watching Nellie! It was the first time Nellie was away from home and I was nervous, but not for long after meeting you and Goldie! I appreciate the daily updates and pictures! She had so much fun, Matt said she slept all day, so you sure must have ran her a lot!!! We will definitely use you again to sit! I appreciate all your help!

I knew Gracie was in good hands and I knew she was being treated the same way I would! I would recommend Vanessa to my family and friends, and know I can feel comfortable leaving my baby with ...

We can't wait to stay with Vanessa again! This was the first time I've left my boys alone and from the moment we met I knew everything would be great. She sent daily updates/pictures and took care of my dogs just as I would, even hand feeding my picky eater and wrapping medicine in cheese for Bam (I'm having a hard time getting him to take his medicine but she gave it to him ...

More Cuddles Please!

I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and I have attained my bachelor's in Animal Science with a Pre-Veterinary School concentration. With my degree, I was able to get experience with a variety of animals, including cows, horses, pigs, goats, and chickens. I am excited to pursue my goal in attending veterinary school, as my passion for animals has continued to grow. I have always owned animals, and am happy ...

What Vanessa would like to know about your dog

I am an extremely laid back person. I allow my dog on the couch, so I would like to know if you did the same. I will respect the rules you have for your dog as well as any specific routines you have set for them. If there's any medication required or allergies of any sort, please notify me with instruction. In addition, I would like to know if your dog gets along with others. Also, it is important that your dog is potty trained.

I do not have any breed preferences. I love all breeds!
