About Diana

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Five Star Boarding at an affordable price!
Exercise is a priority for your canine companion.
My entourage of pups will receive daily exercise, involving running and walking. Anywhere between 1 and 10 miles depending on breed and age. Dogs of all ages are welcome. Weather is not a factor as far as exercise is concerned. We go out rain, snow or shine!! Daily one on one attention is a must for each dog I board.
Plenty of comfortable seating and areas for relaxation, both inside and out. A huge plus is the fabulous fully fenced back yard, offering both sun and shade. All boarders have access to the yard 24/7, as the back door is always open.
All dogs receive rotisserie chicken with their meals, but only if the owner allows it. This option is always addressed during the Meet and Greet.
My boarders are treated with the utmost care. I provide a true Dog Vacay for your important pup!

Our puppy has tons of energy and we were so pleased to know Diana was going to take her on long hikes where she could run, play, and get some great outdoor time. We'll definitely use Diana's services again.
Diana is a real gem! I couldn't be happier with the wonderful care she took of both my dogs over the Christmas holidays. One of my dogs is over 13 years old and increasingly has a hard time away from me and my other dog is an anxious rescue. They both had such a wonderful time with Diana. They have a tendency to go off their food for a bit when transitioning to boarding, and that never even happened.

Diana sent pictures to me pretty much daily and they were acting and looking exactly like they do when they're with me. This was by far the most carefree vacation I've taken with my dogs boarding because of Diana. When they came back to me after 8 days, it was like they'd only been out for an hour, they were so happy and healthy. Diana is our #1 Dogsitter for Life!

Thanks again, Diana! Love and kisses from Petal and Jack xxoo!
So happy that Diana was available on short notice. Comforting to know that my sweet Olive was in such good hands. Also appreciate Diana going the extra mile for pickup.
Diana was great and the boys absolutely loved their stay. They came back tired and happy! She was great at communicating and clearly loves and understands all the pups she boards.
Diana was great! Luna received plenty of exercise and came back from her one week vacation relaxed and happy. I had a sort of complex situation where I dropped Luna off, but she was picked up by a friend since I was out of the country. Diana was easy for me and my friend to work with, and accommodated our schedules well.
You could not select a better caregiver for your dog than Diana. On a recent trip to Santa Fe she boarded my senior dog, Sheila, for several days. Her home, which includes an acre of fenced land, is laid out so that dogs can go inside and outside at their pleasure - something my dog especially loved. Diana sends you pictures during the stay which puts your mind at ease and frees you to enjoy your trip. I made my reservation with her more than 6 months in advance to ensure that she would be available when I travelled to Santa Fe. I think that says it all.
Little Miss Faith D. Dogg loves going to Diana's and hiking with her. She comes home happy and exhausted.
We feel so lucky to have discovered Diana! We can travel knowing that our dog is safe and having a great time. In fact, last time he stayed with her for an extended time, we picked him up and he had lost the weight the vet recommended he lose! Thank you Diana!
Again, Diana was wonderful! Our dog loves going to her place and always gets plenty of exercise!
Diana was fantastic! She gave me a tour of her place and I felt very comfortable leaving my diva dog there. She sent photo updates to my mother, since I was without cell service. I will absolutely use her again in the future!
Dogs came back and slept for the day. I think they were dreaming of their time with Diana.
Diana has created a wonderful place for dogs to feel at home and pampered. Our 7 month old puppy hadn't been away from us since we got him 5 months earlier. He seemed to fit right in and was totally relaxed and happy when we picked him up - always a good sign that he was OK and well cared for. We'll definitely return when we're in the area.
Baron was hosted by Diana B for a 24 hours 8/17 - 8/18, and greatly enjoyed his stay with her and three other guests. He cleaned his plate on the two meals in her home (he often does not eat when boarded). He got good exercise with Diana, and was very happy and tired at the end of his stay with Diana and her other guests.

Diana provides a great experience for active dogs. After spending a week with Diana, Baxter came back relaxed and well cared for. He would go back to Diana anytime! (and I would take him!) It was fun receiving her daily pic and update.
Diana was fabulous. She gave our dog lots of exercise, her own chicken and allowed him to sleep in her room because he is "' older and needed his own space". We would definitely use her services again.
Diana was an absolutely wonderful dog sitter! We have a very active dog and Diana gave her the exercise and attention she needed every day for over a week. We would highly recommend Diana!!!
My dog jumps when sees Diana. The pics she send almost daily are great.
Diana is he best i can find for our dog. I was little nervous about our dog behavior with other dogs but she really know what she is doing and our Sunny dog had a great vacations and playtime. Plus she eat like in a 5 star hotels, chicken addition to her meals. Now she needs to go back to the routine at home. Other great things was to have Diana send us updates and pictures. My kids were waiting for them. Thank you Diana!
Diana was very friendly welcoming our whole party in at drop off. She was very responsive to my concerns about my dog interacting with other dogs. She was amazing at calming and managing my dog Atticus. He enjoyed his time there and she gave him lots of love, attention and understanding.
Diana was superb from beginning to end.
She is a natural dog whisperer, and has an affinity with dogs. And they get roasted chicken for dinner, so my dog who is anxious ate well. Although there was a crowd when we arrived (and when we left--word is out!!), Diana has a system of welcoming each dog and caring for their needs in a way that is both structured and relaxed.
My Libra was calm on pick-up and seems to have become better trained from the experience.
Highly Recommend this gem, thanks Diana.
Our doggies met Diana one week prior at a meet and greet. She had other dogs at her home that weekend and Diana introduced them slowly to each other as you should. We were very surprised at our dog Travis's reaction when we returned for their overnight stay. He recognized her location and was so excited to return. We got some texts (including pictures), which is always good to see that your pets are being cared for in a good manner. I forgot to ask how they did on their walk with her, but I am sure they did well. They will look forward to returning!
Diana helped us out at the last minute with our Poncho! He had a blast!!!! Not sure if he had every had more fun in his life :)
Ranger my dog felt at ease the moment he walked in the door and was greeted by Diana, she is a lovely sweet woman who's house is welcoming with a huge yard! Ranger got along with the other dogs there, romping and playing, tails wagging in joyful glee! Many thanks to Diana while I was away as she texted and sent pictures of a happy dog. I recommend her highly and will bring Ranger there again when I need to go away. She's awesome!
My dog is NOT easy! He is old and struggles. He has never stayed with with anyone he didn't already know before and in spite of his strange behavior and quirky ways, Diana was WONDERFUL! She got him to eat (not an easy task) and recommended some great food for me to buy for him too! I couldn't be happier and will definitely use her again!
Sherlock had a great time staying with Diana. He got lots of exercise & gave her lots of hugs during his stay.
It's great being able to leave my sweet Olive with Diana. They go for LONG WALKS...
Fairly late request and this was my first time leaving Olive with Diana. She made it easy. Olive was a happy girl.
What a fabulous option for our dogs while we are away--Diana was simply outstanding. We were hoping for a happier-than-the-kennel experience for our pups and Diana provided exactly that. She went far above and beyond! Walking our dogs daily, paying them each special attention, even pressure washing our dog food container (which was quite dirty and long overdue for a bath). We received photos and updates regularly. Diana even worked with our busy schedule, offering to bring our dogs home to us when we returned from vacation. We will NEVER return to the kennels again. Thank you, Diana!
Our 6 year old dog spent a few days with Diana while we were at a meeting. He got great exercise in daily trips to the dog park, and she sent us texts and pictures every day so we could see how he was doing. She has a natural affinity for dogs and is sensitive to their personalities and needs. For example, our dog is friendly but reserved; when he became a bit overwhelmed with the arrival of two new dogs, she created a "den" for him that he could go to when needed. We look forward to boarding with her in the future.
Dogs had a great time and Diana is very accommodating.
I am so glad I found Diana, Juno was a rescue and a kennel, because of her early experiences, was not an option for her. Diana was able to make Juno feel relaxed and safe in her home, she took the time to work with Juno and deal with her special needs. I so appreciate it. I can now leave Juno and know she is happy in a great place. Getting lots of exercise and loving care.
Dianna was easy to book with, and quick to respond. Our dog enjoyed his stay! He really liked romping with the other dogs, and the daily hike Dianna provides. I would have given 5 stars, but was a little difficult to nail down a drop off time.
Diana was great! This was Niko's first time staying with her and he really enjoyed it. Nice long walks/hikes, special dinnertime treats, and lots of love. We will definitely have Diana host Niko again!
Sydney had a wonderful time staying with Diana! Several mile trail hikes with the other dogs was the daily routine. I received daily reports and emailed photos of Sydney's activities. Sydney and I both highly recommend Diana and would use her services again.
We were very pleased, and Ibarrah was very happy, staying with Diana. She was very professional, friendly and prompt with organizing our reservation. Her home and backyard was clean and perfectly arranged to accommodate doggy guests.

Diana went above and beyond what we expected. She sent us daily updates via text message (including pictures of Ibarrah) and even washed her towels we left with her.

We highly recommend Diana for anyone who needs good ole' doggy care where they can receive lots of love and personal attention.

Terri, Ralph & Ibarrah
Our dogs let us know that we made the right decision leaving them with Diane for 5 nights as soon as we met her! They knew immediately that they were with a true, loving friend. We loved getting the pictures and texts about their activities each day. Whenever, we go to NM for work or fun our babies will be visiting Diane.
This whole Dog Vacay is a great concept and we intend to use it in our home state of OK as well as wherever we travel. Thank you for this great idea to put caring dog lovers available for our piece of mind!
Diana took excellent care of my dog, Bailey. He had so much fun on their long walks, making new buddies and even getting fed chicken. I received updates and pictures everyday so I didn't have to worry. I will definitely use Diana again.
Diana was wonderful with our cavachon. She got to know her and accommodated our dog's separation issues. Our dog had not been exposed to larger breeds - Diana drew her in and this vacay became a true growth and happy experience for our girl Very, very pleased!!
Diana is/was terrific! Would use her services again in a heartbeat. Highly recommend.
Diana was great with both our dogs and she provided extra loving care for our 15-year-old Lab. We will definitely be seeing her again on our next trip out of town. Diana is very friendly and her love for or dogs clearly apparent.
Another great stay at Diana's. Lucy loves it here.
Another wonderful experience with Diana. Lucy loves coming here. She gets plenty of playtime and attention and Diana is very accommodating in arrangements for pickup and collection. We always have great peace of mind leaving our pup at Diana's and it is one less thing to worry about when travelling.
Diana was very kind to give my dog a trial daycare visit after our meet and greet. He spent 4 hours with her and her "pack." Unfortunately, she told me he wasn't a good match for her services. He barks a lot when playing with other dogs and he is untrustworthy off-leash. I sure wish it would have worked out but I still love my furry misfit just the way he is!
Wow, Bobby I know had a wonderful time with Diana. My biggest problem about going away is my worry that my dog wont get enough exercise in. I worry no more! Diana takes the dogs out on super long walks. My only worry now is that his every day walks with me will no longer be enough. Thank you Diana.
We are very particular when finding a sitter/boarder for our very active dog, Iggy, and conduct multiple meet-n-greets before choosing a host that is a good fit. Diana was wonderful and just what Iggy ordered. She has a calm demeanor as a pack leader and includes daily exercise as a part of the stay. In fact she really almost insists upon it and encouraged us to leave Iggy until she could go running with him, which we really appreciated. She was highly communicative with text messages and photos as well. We have no reservations in recommending Diana. Two paws way up!
Diana was WONDERFUL with our pup! This was our first time boarding our lab, and it couldn't have gone any better. We were sent text updates and photos of Rosie. Diana made sure she was well exercised and cared for. We were afraid Rosie had such a good experience, she might not want to return home with us! We will definitely be planning another stay for Rosie with Diana.
Thank you Diana and Dog Vacay!
I have 1 high-maintenance dog that goes on hunger strikes and such. But not with Diane. She has secret powers and is very calm. I got daily pics/updates so I could be away and not worry about my dog's health/welfare. She took them on daily hikes so her care went well beyond my expectations.

Diane is awesome and your dogs will love her. Mine did! I'm in Santa Fe temporarily - I wish I could find someone as good as she is at home!

Not only is she good with dogs, she is a nice person all around....
Diana was simply fantastic! I rarely leave my dog with anyone but family because she is extremely high energy and has mild separation anxiety. My dog can be a bit of a handful. I was so happy to have found Diana, who took the time to ensure that my dog had the individualized care she needed. Diana made sure that my dog got the appropriate amount of exercise she needed by taking my dog for a 10 mile hike! I don't know of any other pet sitters that would have gone to such lengths to make sure that my dog was happy and comfortable during her stay. In the past my dog has been very distressed when I picked her up from kennels and would bolt straight for my truck, but when I picked my dog up at Diana's she was relaxed and happy. I will certainly be booking with Diana in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter or daycare!
Diana was awesome! Chula loved the long hikes and was immediately at home with Diana. I've decided for Chula to keep taking daily hikes with her and will board Chula each time we go out of town. We are so happy to have found Diana!
There is no doubt in my mind that my two standard poodles had a great time, however, if they had been smooth short haired coated dogs I would not have minded the running free in the brush. I picked them up with an unbelievable amount of burrs embedded in their fur, especially my older poodle who has cotton like texture to his. I have already spent hours trying to get some of this out but may resort to having him shaved completely.
Diana was great, start to finish. She responded to my request to meet in a prompt & friendly manner. She was great with my dog, Bear, and when I picked him up I could see that he had bonded with her. She took him hiking each day, his favorite! It's great to have someone I trust when Bear needs a place to stay!
Diana was awesome! Diana took the time to call us in advance, as we were visiting from out of state, which put us at ease. Diana has a fully enclosed yard, which allows the dogs to go in and out of her house as they need. Diana also walks the dogs, or takes them to the dog park near her house. She kept us updated with text messages, and pictures as well. Our two dogs were well loved and cared for; we would give a high recommendation to anyone, and will most certainly use Diana for future visits. Thanks Diana, from Peanut and Buster.
Diana was great with our high-energy and sometimes stubborn dog, Gus. We could not be more pleased with the level of care and attention she gave our pup and would recommend her to anyone visiting the area.
Chutney had a fabulous time on her doggie vacation with Diana. Big long walks every day which kept our pup happy and content with lots of other dogs to keep her company. Diana kept in touch with us through email, sending cute notes and and an occasional picture. We so enjoyed hearing from her and we could tell our dog was totally relaxed and nurtured. No question, Diana is our "go-to" for boarding Chutney from now on.
Diana was a perfect fit for our dog, Echo, who can be very demanding in terms of personal attention!
She's spoiled, and rules our household with her demands. Diana took her demands in stride and made everyone happy. We will continue to trust Diana when we travel and must leave Echo behind.
I left my two dogs with Diana for two weeks while I was in Europe with my family and I think they're sorry to be back with us! Diana was great with them and I'm happy to have left them with her. Thanks Diana!
As always Diana gave excellent care to my two dogs. They feel very comfortable with her. She is also very helpful in providing them baths and transportation home.
Diana was a great host for our two high-energy, large dogs. Her house is open to an enclosed back yard where our dogs apparently played all day. And she took them on a 4-mile hike that thoroughly tired them out. We are glad we found her in Santa Fe!
Diana is in a league of her own! Our two dogs stayed with her while we were away in Europe, and Diana was nothing short of amazing with them. Our geriatric lab with heart disease was in great hands and enjoyed short, gentle walks, while our rambunctious golden-boxer-beagle mix got to go on wonderful runs daily. Both dogs also received lots of special attention and playtime. Diana clearly loves dogs and has tons of experience with all kinds of dogs. She gracefully managed the ridiculously complex food & medication regimens we have for our dogs, and sent us regular updates, which was reassuring. Her house and yard are perfect, with a very secure, grassy yard--plenty of shade and sun and water, and the dogs can go in and out whenever they want. We would not hesitate to have Diana take care of our precious dogs again. She is a godsend to people like us who have a really hard time leaving the doggies behind when we travel. Diana is absolutely fantastic!
Diana was great with Scrappy. We were a bit anxious, because she doesn't like being left. It was very reassuring to get Diana's daily report by text, and even a photo. Scrappy did great due to Diana's kind attention and the fact that she gives her canine visitors plenty of exercise. I wouldn't hesitate to leave Scrappy with her again if we make another visit to Santa Fe. I highly recommend her to other dog owners.
This was our first time using DogVacay and had a really excellent experience. Its a great peace of mind being able to leave town knowing that your dog is in safe hands, and that's what we had with Diana. We will definitely be bringing Lucy back in the future.
My 3 dogs stayed with Diana over the July 4th vacation and I was able to have a great relaxing vacation too! I knew that they would be well exercised (running three + miles in the morning), socialized and loved. Diana has a good sized fenced in yard with a very dog friendly home. I like that the dogs can go in or out as they like. The daily emails kept me informed and put my mind at ease. Diana is now an extended member of my family. I will be using Diana many times in the future!
Diana is amazing. She had my dog out on the trail hiking everyday. I will be using here to sit for my dog again. The standard has been set now for other dog sitters. Not sure anyone can meet her standard. Thanks again Diana.
My dog is always sad to see me coming home. Not really, but she gets tons of exercise and play under Diana's watchful care. Life with me is far less exciting.
We were so impressed with Diana! She was very professional, and after doing a meet and greet with her, I felt confident that she would take good care of our baby. Diana has a lovely home with a backyard for dogs to play in, and she makes sure to give each of the dogs exercise and personal attention. Our dog had gotten injured the week before our trip, and we were so thankful that Diana was able to take her to the vet for suture removal while we were away. She kept us informed with emails throughout the week, including photos! When our flight plans changed, Diana was flexible and able to keep Lucy for an extra night.

Our dog is very shy, and doesn't usually like to meet new people, but it was clear when we picked her up at the end of the week that she had bonded with Diana. We really appreciated Diana's thoughtfulness at pick up time: she kept the other dogs outside so that we could fully enjoy our reunion with our baby. We would highly recommend her to anyone!
My dog had an even better weekend than I did. She got lots of exercise, plenty of socialization, and Diana kept in touch with me daily, since this was her first visit.
Outstanding. Kept us informed. Very supportive. Patient and understanding. Our dog loved her. Thanks for the great Dogsitter. Greg & Sue
I was extremely worried about leaving my little schnauzer with someone I did not know. I had always left her with a friend but she moved out of state. The meet and greet was very informative and I felt very comfortable with the backyard, very secure and a good size for dogs. Diane sent me text msgs every day and a couple of pictures. She took my dog on walks and she loved the outdoor time. I was extremely satisfied and have already made another reservation for a long weekend in March!
Diana took great care of my 12 year old dog. Nellie lives to hike and Diana had her out every day. When I picked her up she was lounging in front of the fire - dog tired! Diana was also great about sending me texts and some pix - I was gone for 9 days and was concerned about leaving my old girl for that long in a new environment.
We boarded two dogs with Diana over the holiday. She treats her guests well, offering them lots of exercise and dog interaction. This is a nice alternative to a traditional boarding facility.
I am very happy to have found Diana to take care of Liam for me. It was Liam's first time away from home (he is only 7 months old) and when I picked him up at Diana's it was clear he was healthy and happy.

Liam was a bit melancholic for his first few days at home and it was clear he was missing all the dog friends he made at Diana's.

When I have to travel in the future I will undoubtedly be calling Diana and Liam will undoubtedly be happy to visit her again!
Diana was wonderful! My two dogs stayed with her and her dog, Carly, for 6 days. one of my dogs has a very difficult time with people he does not know. After the daily hikes and walks and cuddle time he was licking her and so happy! We will definitely have our dogs stay with Diana again!
Our pup stayed 2 days and one night, had a great time, plenty of exercise and seemed very well taken care of. We will use her service again.
Whenever I have gone away before, I have always left my Aussie with friends, but I'm new to Santa Fe, and found Diana through Dog Vacay. Chevella stayed with her for six days, and I was very pleased and impressed with Diana. The long hikes every day were perfect for my active pooch. And Chevella hardly seemed to have missed me when I picked her up! I could tell she had been well cared for and loved. Diana even gave her a bath and treated her dry fur with coconut oil! I feel so relieved to have found a caring place for her when I travel.
Diana B's home/dog sitting space is clean and well planned for the dogs. She has experience with dogs and has trained dogs. My dog had some fears during his visit that she helped him with, and she was resourceful in re-assuring him that everything was ok.
I was so worried about leaving my dog Miles for a week but Diana put my mind at ease. She is amazing!! She texted me while I was gone and sent me pictures. There was a problem with my flight and I couldn't make it back on the scheduled day-I called Diana and she reassured me it was no problem. There is no doubt that I would have her take care of Miles again whether I was going on vacation or needed someone to watch him for the day. It is great to know that I have found someone that I know I can trust and most importantly that Miles really likes too!!!!
As always miss Little Faith had a great time at Diana's.
Little Faith has a great time at Diana's and loves the morning runs.
Diana went all out in her care of Maggie, taking her walking twice a day and even swimming! She sent us texts and emails with pictures, which was reassuring. Maggie had a great time! Diana clearly loves dogs.
Excellent care..Diana was perfect, would use her services again and again, all you have to do is see her with her own dogs for two minutes..magic stuff!
Little Faith D. Dogg had a great time at Diana's.
We got great feedback from Diana when we were away, and she was more than helpful on our return. We'll definitely look her up next time we're needing someone to watch our pups!
Based on her profile we jumped at the opportunity to have her watch our beloved dog. We appreciated that she took our dog on a 3 mile run and kept her safe. Her home was dog friendly and we look forward to having Diana watch our dog again.
Diana B is a caring and enthusiastic pet sitter. She had our dog with her for a full week and we are all very happy we did it. I would certainly use her again and I recommend her to you.
I have left my dogs with Diana 3 times now. She is very caring, flexible with my changing schedules, and helpful. She copes well with their somewhat complicated food and medication regimes. She shows genuine concern for their welfare and happiness, treating each according to their own needs (eg exercise for those who need it and help with limited for mobility for my dog with hip dysplasia) . They run from the car to her front door eager to be there again.
What can I say?? Kodi had a WONDERFUL stay with Diana -- the daily runs are just what he needed and LOVED! He was so exhausted when we picked him up, we knew he had a great time. Being around other dogs was good for him too, as he is an "only" dog, so loved the companionship of other dogs around. Thank you so very much Diana!!
Diana did a tremendous job with my two dogs. From the start, she was friendly and communicative, personable and professional. She has a wonderful home for dogs to feel comfortable in and treats them extremely well: walks, jogs, treats, and plenty of attention. She is also very perceptive as to making them feel safe around other dogs and making the dogs feel like they are at home. My dogs were very happy to see me upon pick-up, but also very warm with Diana and I could tell that they bonded with her thanks to her care. I definitely recommend her services and, if the need arises, will be communicating with her through DogVacay in the future. Thank you!
I would recommend Diana to anyone and I will recommend her to everyone who needs not just a reliable dog sitter, but one who is above-and-beyond. Our dog Nelson responded to her right away and he is normally shy with new people. While Nelson stayed with Diana, he was social, well-behaved, and not stressed out. Our dog suffers separation anxiety. We left Nelson with Diana for a week and we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation as well. We will call Diana every time.
She is very flexible, helpful and a wonderful dog person. My 2 dogs had a great time. She was attentive to their individual food, activity and medication needs. I feel much better about leaving my dogs since I met Diana.
Diana was a perfect foster Mom for my elder dog Utah. She met us at her door and made both Utah and Us very comfortable. She offered to text me every day. And did send me frequent updates. Diana took Utah an a run every day, better than she gets with me, and she is better with other dogs than she has ever been. Diana was a peerless dog sitter. Utah was actually a little depressed for a few days after we picked her up. I think she was missing the loving household she had joined for 3 weeks. Diana is a great dog lover and caregiver. She gets me unequivocal recommendation.
Diana was great! The dogs got lots of exercise and are looking forward to the next time.
Diana was great! She cared for our 18 month old Boxer for 8 days. He is very active and seemed to get plenty of daily exercise and TLC. Diana kept us well informed through out our vacation via email, texts and pics. He seemed to make himself right at home by taking over her couch. We will definitely utilize her services again.
We left our 10 month old, very active lab with Diana. She was great, runs every morning, playing ball in the evening, and a comfy place to sleep at night. Diana was also kind enough to keep us updated at least once a day, with how things were going. The updates were very much appreciated and kept us from worrying. We would board with Diana again without hesitation!
My dog had a great experience with Diana. How do I know? Because when I picked him up after 6 days, he was excited, not panicked like when I have left him at a kennel. My dog is a mini-poodle mix and at first he was shaking when he saw the bigger dogs at Diana's house. Diana helped him get comfy with the other dogs, and his experience was amazing. She let him sleep on her bed, took him on errands, and walked him 2 to 3 miles a day. She even gave him a bath. Plus, she sent photos and texts about his experience every day. And, she gave him ear medication twice a day. The best part is that she genuinely seemed fond of my dog. 5 stars.
Ace was happy. We were happy. Diana did a great job with a dog that hasn't really been away from his owners in several years. Next time we are going to be away we hope she is available to take care of him.
