Carol was totally terrific with our two dogs (1/2 Australian Shep and 1/2 Border Collie). We did the meet and greet where Carol got to get to know our two "boys" and discussed everything about them. And when we picked them up after a week of vacation, we could see that they were both well taken care of. The pictures every day of the boys were sweet.
She truly enjoyed caring for my precious little puppy. Photos show her playing and interacting with her, just like I would. Thanks Carol.
Jordy came home tuckered out after his 5 night stay with Carol! She took him to the dog park daily and always sent pictures of him socializing and having a fun time with other dogs. We will send Jordy to Carol again the next time we are out of town.
Emma has stayed with Carol and Trooper 2-3 times now. Carol has made Emma feel right at home each time. I never feel guilty about leaving Emma. She's shown me that she likes staying with her friends Carol and Trooper.
This was our first time using Dogvacay, and Carol made it super easy. She welcomed our Pepper into her home for a meet and greet and made us all feel right at home. Carol was super flexible with our schedule (which changed a lot). I would easily recommend Carol when you have to leave your pup at home.
My dog came home and she was exhausted and happy. Carol kept her busy at the dog park and playing with other dogs. Will definitely use her again!
My dogs have gone to Carol many times since Jan 2015. She is great and knows dogs well. What I like the most about Carol is that she treats my dogs like I do. Daily pictures and videos are definitely a plus!
Carol is great. She took care of my dog for the 2nd time. She is really good at sharing pics. My dog loves going to her!!!
Loves the everyday picture updates of our puppy at Carol's house! Great service!
Carol B did great caring for our 3 dogs while we were out of town. I had never used an outside sitter before and was nervous about how it would go but it didn't take long for me to realize that they were in very good hands. The daily photos told the story. Fun at the dog park, 3 of them on the bed and then on the couch showed how well they were doing and how thoughtful Carol was about getting them to feel happy and comfortable. Kudos and Thank You Carol!
Carol was very responsive to our last minute need. It was our first time using DogVacay and everything went smoothly. We were probably a little over prepared bringing a dog bed, food, water, etc. :) When we picked up our little Abby, she seemed wore out from a walk, but happy. We'd book with Carol again if we're ever in need in the area. Thanks!
The nicest rude lady I have experienced, Sherman stayed with Carol over memorial day weekend. When first talking over the internet she seemed very nice and we talked extensively about if she was qualified. A few days before the starting date I contacted her to make sure everything was still going to be fine and her tone and friendliness changed almost at once. I felt very unwelcome and felt just talking with her was a inconvenience. When we first met things went good and Sherman was well kept for during his stay. Even was returned to me bathed and smelling wonderful. The reason I feel inclined to leave a 3 star review instead of 5 is how she treated me during pick up. On the website I had Shermans pick up time at 2-3pm but when we met in person I very clearly explained this was a mistake and I needed to pick him up at 6 pm due to travel time and she agreed. On Tuesday at 3:13 I got a text from her saying "I have to leave in 5 minutes." followed by " is almost 3:30. Sherman was supposed to be picked up between 2 and 3. I need to leave." I arrived to an empty home at 5 and waited an hour for her to return. When she finally got home she pulled up the email saying I would pick him up at 2 even though we both agreed on 6. To get out fast and avoid a argument I apologized and got the response " Yeah, you really f***** up on that one" In conclusion if you want your dog well cared for she is wonderful. But be prepared to be left in her driveway only to be treated like dirt.
Carol went above and beyond what we expected. on our long weekend getaway! Our two dogs were taken on walks and to the Dog Park!
Carol is FANTASTIC
Carol is pawsome. In the pictures she sent, Emma always looks relaxed like she's at home. The first time Emma stayed with Carol, she looked out the front window and watched me go. Now she goes in the house giving me a quick glance as if to say "Aren't you coming. Okay. See ya."
Bentley was well cared for and Carol was very communicative. Highly recommend, Carol.
Carol was awesome! Great communication, very accommodating, and our dog had a great time.

Carol treated our two dogs like they were part of her family. She provided pictures while we were away which showed our dogs enjoying life like they do at home. She took our dogs for walks which is what our dogs are accustomed to. She also has a fenced backyard which is important to us. We will definitely call upon Carol again.
Carol was absolutely amazing, I cannot thank her enough for the great care she had for Joey! I needed someone to take care of Joey at the last minute and I was nervous because this was my first time to use Dog Vacay but it could not have gone better! You can definitely tell that Carol loves dogs and loves taking care of them. She sent me pictures of Joey every day and kept me updated on whatever they were doing. She was very responsive and she even handled it so well when Joey had an incident and snapped at another dog at a dog park. No matter what, Carol made me feel at ease and took excellent care of Joey! I would definitely trust her again with him!
Our dog Wrigley stayed with Carol for more than 3 weeks while we were moving and living in an apartment that would not accept large dogs. She loves Carol and Carol was accommodated our wish to walk Wrigley each day according to our schedules. We will definitely recommend her and have Wrigley stay with her again.
Wrigley began wagging her tail each day she arrived at Carol's door. She truly had our dog's best interests at heart.
New to the area and needing a place for our dog to go, but not wanting to do the kennel thing. Because of late planning, we could not find a place to board our dog, then came across DogVacay. Sounding too good to be true, looked up reviews, BBB ,etc. And so happy it was legit. Carol took great care of our girl and was great about getting her out and sending update pics. Will never use a kennel again.
Carol was great with Cooper. Cooper was exhausted after his stay so he got all his energy out playing with other dogs and going on walks. Thank you again Carol for taking care of Cooper and hope that you will watch him again :-)

Carol is phenomenal! We have a domanant female and a troubled male. Carol was able to work with both of them so well. They were both very happy and well exercised when we picked them up. While we were away, she kept us updated with pictures, which helped us so much emotionally! We would eagerly recommend Carol to anyone!
The dogs came back happy and tired! Carol was wonderful at sending us pictures to help us feel connected with our pups! Thanks again!
This was my first time using a sitter and I was a little nervous. Emma had always stayed at a kennel. Leaving her with Carol was 100 times better. Not only because of the cost, but she treated Emma like her home was Emma's home too.
Emma definitely liked Carol and Trooper. When I picked up Emma, she nuzzled her head between Carol's knees like she does me to show she is happy. I had never seen her do that to anyone else before.
I got the sense that Emma loved her vacay. She got walks; something I don't do. Carol took daily photos. Emma is camera shy and turns her head away from cameras but Carol was persistent. I got nice photos.
Carol will definitely be my first choice for Emma's next vacay. I'm a sitter and I would refer her to customers.
Carol is experienced with older dogs and administering meds, and was meticulous about clarifying restrictions. Apparently my dog and hers were not the best of friends, but nothing you can do about individual dog personalities. Appreciated the photos that Carol sent while I was gone.
