About Yuwadee

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
A loving host and a large property make a happy place for doggies! Hi, my name is Yuwadee and I am originally from Thailand. I live in Lumpkin County with my husband Will and my doggies Barney and Chockdee. We live on a larger property of 11 acres, five of which is fenced in. We have a nature trail for daily walks and I love to work in the yard and do gardening while the doggies play. In the evenings we all have a yummy meal then relax and read or watch TV. Or we play with the doggies some more if they want to. Please schedule a meeting if you would like to meet me and see how I take care of guest doggies! WARNING! I may hug and kiss them too much!

We're very blessed to have Yuwadee recommended to us. We are extremely picky about the care of our Sadie, who is a Pitbull that often doesn't get the chance to show how loving she is because of the typical stereotype of the pit breed. Yuwadee put all our worries to rest from the moment we pulled into her driveway & she greeted me with a hug. Our Sadie is a big spoiled baby who loves kisses and to play. Yuwadee sent us tons of pictures everyday, which was very much appreciated. We have booked 2 more vacays for Sadie with Yuwadee !!!
Thank You Yuwadee for being amazing.
Another great experience for Toby and us. Yu is the best!
Dexter had an awesome time at Yuwadee's house. This was the first time we've left him for more than one night and Yuwadee made me feel relieved knowing he was in great hands. I was actually able to enjoy my vacation and not worry about my fur baby. In every picture he was running around playing and having fun. He LOVES it there. I will always recommend Yuwadee to anyone who needs someone to take really good care of their pet while they're on vacation.
Yuwadee is always a pleasure and sends us tons of pictures during our pup's stay. He always gets plenty of exercise and plays hard during his stay. Will always continue to use Yu as she makes me feel very comfortable leaving our pup.
Yu is very friendly and her dogs are great. She is very conscientious and will take care of your fur-babies well!
Yuwadee made our Yorki's time away from home so enjoyable. We hated to leave him in a kennel locked up and that is why we chose DogVacay. Yuwadee sent pictures of our pup having a blast outside running and playing. We know our dog was in great hands with Yuwadee and really enjoyed his time away from us while we were out of town. I would definitely use DocVacay again in the future.
We have a spunky, social 2-year old and a dignified, human-centered 11-year old and were looking for a place to leave them for 2 weeks. We booked an overnight trial stay with Yu.

The young one got lots of playtime with the other dogs and enjoyed running around outdoors. The older one felt visibly reassured by all the love and attention he got from Yu. Our two boys came home appearing refreshed and as though they had bonded by going through an adventure together!

It's never easy to leave your dogs, but I know they'll be having a good time while we are out and that Yu will send plenty of pictures to help me feel connected to them during my vacation.
My two pups were in Yu's capable hands for nine days on this return visit. She is everything you want in a dog sitter. Sweet, compassionate, very capable and anxious to "go that extra mile" to insure that your pets have a great time & receive the care you would give. I'm convinced that my dog, Abe, would rather just live with Yu and play with her dog, Barney, than come home! Your search for just the right sitter can stop 'cause Yuwadee is the one you want.
Our pups were definitely worn out once we picked them up! We also received many pictures throughout there stay! We will definitely be using Yu the next time we go out of town!!!
Our dogs are not used to being boarded so we were a little nervous. They had a great time with Yu! She took them for long walks and sent us lots of pictures every day to reassure us. One of our dogs needs daily medication and she handled that. We will certainly send our dogs to stay with Yu next time we need to board them. Thanks, Yu!
Once again Rosie got to vacation with Yuwadee. She had a great time. She gets so excited to go and play with the other dogs. If you want a loving place to leave your fur baby, this is the place! Thank you once again for taking good care of Rosie!
Yuwadee is the best 'Second Mommy' that a dog could ever have! I am very, very cautious about leaving my beloved Yupi with anyone--but Yuwadee EXCEEDED all my expectations!
She is so loving, intuitive about just what a dog needs, knowledgeable about how to care for them, & very accommodating about my awkward drop of & pick up schedule, due to international travel.
She sent lots of photos every day, which was very comforting. Yupi looked happy & playful, which is always the best sign of good care. When I picked him up, he looked great! And Yuwadee had followed all my instructions about feeding & treats--& even washed Yupi's bedding.
It does not get better than this, & I now have the happy security of knowing there's a great Second Mommy anytime I have to travel.

You might wonder why anyone would drive past other numerous competent DogVacay hosts to leave your dog/s with Yuwadee at her home in rural Lumpkin County. Good question. Simply because if you really and truly want someone to treat your pets like you would, Yu is the person to contact.

This lovely, compassionate woman won over my shy rescue boy within two minutes. In fact, he didn't want to leave and simply went to sit at her front door when it was time to go.

Yu is very conscientious about being clear about your instructions and will contact you if she has any questions. I was so grateful that she sent follow-up texts requesting more info about feeding habits and medicine dosage.

Like all good DogVacay hosts, she keeps you updated with daily photos. Those might include walks around her large fenced property, dogs playing happily with other pups or your own tucked in & secure for the night.

I've already scheduled her for two upcoming trips and now consider her a valuable human member of my canine pack.
Dexter had an amazing time at Yuwadee's house. He gets so excited going over there and loves to run and play with her dogs. He always comes home and goes right to sleep cause he's completely worn out. We couldn't ask for a better sitter.
Yuwadee is the best dog sitter we have ever had. She takes good care of Rosie, our toy poodle. Rosie always comes home happy and health. She also gives her a bath before I pick her up after Rosie has stayed a few days. Rosie loves to play with the other dogs and there is plenty of room for them to run and play. Yuwadee's house and yard is very clean. Which is important to me. We feel blessed to have found her.
Yuwandee is great. It was great piece of mind knowing my two were well taken care of. She sent me text updates and pictures everyday. I will definitely use her again.
We highly recommend Yuwadee based on the terrific care she gave our Labrador!
Dexter had a great time at Yuwadee's house. In all the pictures she sends me he's running and playing and seems incredibly happy! Yuwadee has been working with dexter on some small training and he listens to her very well. She is very attentive and always makes sure he's safe and happy. We're very blessed to have her be a part of his life.
She is excellent, this is Roscoe's second home.
Yuwadee was very accommodating and terrific with Porkchop!! She sent daily pictures and updates, which I appreciated!
Hudson had a great time. Yu is always very pleasant and accommodating.
Dexter had another great night at Yuwadee's house. He loves it there. He always makes friends and in every picture Yuwadee sends me he is running and jumping and seems to be incredibly happy. She is amazing and we couldn't ask for anything more. I have peace of mind everytime I leave him there and he will have many more days and memories at Yuwadee's house.
My dog had a great time! Yu is loving and caring and sent me photos of my Bo having a super fun day.
I kept my 2 Aussies for the first time with Yuwadee for 2 nights and could not have been more pleased. She pampered them and treated them like they were her own. She kept me informed by email as to how they were doing and sent multiple pictures each day. We have already booked our next reservation with her we were so pleased.
Yuwadee is a really great person.. I have been to her a few times and every time she takes care of Jimmy so well. She is also an excellent photographer! I have some really great pictures of Jimmy thanks to Yuwadee would very highly recommend
When Margo stays with Yuwadee, I know she is being loved and that she is having a great time playing with Barney. Yuwadee always sends me pictures and updates, and I never have to worry. Margo loves going here. She can't wait to get out of the car when we pull up.
Another successful night at Yuwadee's house. Dexter loves it there. In all the pictures Yu sends me he's running and playing and having a great time. It is really nice to be able to leave the 4 legged member of our family with such an amazing person. She always reassures me that he's doing great and eating and making friends. You can tell she really loves animals. Dexter comes home all tuckered out and you can tell he had a blast there.
This was the second time I used Yuwadee. Her three boys (dogs) gave my dogs, Budget and Ruprecht, such love and play that they weren't sure they wanted to go home! They had a great Vacay with them. I will definitely continue to use Yuwadee as my official Vacay host again. She is a true dog lover and great host for Dogvacay, I always enjoy meeting her. She took so much care of them, sent pics while we were gone and always answered my emails or texts quickly. I would highly recommend using Yuwadee for you next Dogvacay! Your dogs will love it!!!
I can't say enough good things about Yuwadee! This was my first time leaving Dexter with someone else and he is a very big spoiled handful and Yuwadee handled it like a pro. She sent my plenty of photos to help ease my mind and Dexter loves it there. When we got home Dexter was out cold for like 3 hours. He had a great time and will be spending more time there in the future. I would definitely recommend Yuwadee to anyone who wants to leave their dog with someone who will treat them like family.
Hudson spent the day with Yu and Barney. He loved playing in the woods. He was a tired puppy when he got home, so that makes me think he had fun playing. Yu was accommodating and very sweet. We would definitely take Hudson there again.
Once again everything went well. I highly recommend.
Toby had a great time with Yu and her dogs. It is just the perfect place for her when we go out of town. I highly recommend Yuwadee.
Yuwadee was wonderful! Our 2 little guys (Chihuahua and Chihuahua mix) had a great time with Yuwadee's four legged babies and Yuwadee treated mine as her own. They ate well, slept well, played well - I wish I had her near my Florida home! I would highly recommend Yuwadee to anyone in her area. Terrific!
Yuwadee is really great! Jimmy gets a lot of exercise and she sends me a lot of photos. Jimmy really likes it there and plays a lot with Barney and the others. I cant say enough good things and she always makes sure Jimmy eats dinner and even has even tucked him in with a blanket. He is very safe with Yuwadee I am very, very happy!
Since I looked around for a while and experienced different places for my dog, Yuwadee and her husbands place will be the home away from home for my fourlegged family members.Safe place to run and and a cozy place in the house, some loving and a bowl of food....life is good. I noticed ( on the photos , that Yuwadee send me,) that my female dog looks a little stressed in the new company of 3 male dogs. She learned some skills to deal with that new situation and will visit again , soon.

I am glad I found you !
Our small dachshund Winston did great with Yu's dogs! She is very accommodating and makes you feel at ease leaving your pup. She sends great pictures and updates as well! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Will definitely be using her again.
Jimmy is a 70 lb hound dog. Yuwadee took great care of him. He got lots of exercise and was very happy , healthy , and not stressed when I picked him up. I will be sleeping easy whenever I take Jimmy to see Yuwadee again! Thank you!!
Our dog seemed to have a great time! We will use Yuwadee on our next vacation.
My dog, Margo had a great time. I didn't have to worry about her being locked up all week. She had space to run and play and lots of attention and love. Yuwadee sent plenty of pictures and updates, and Margo loved her!
Excellent experience. We highly recommend Yuwande.
Whenever I travel I depend on Yuwandee to care for my little pappillon. He is always very happy to stay with her. He knows when we are on our way to her house and gets so excited!! He jumps out of my car to runs into her arms. I feel so blessed to have someone who Charlie loves to stay with. When he is happy I am happy!!
Thank you Yuwandee for loving my fur baby :)
Yuwadee was a wonderful caretaker of my dog, Benny. My family and I were traveling to Dahlonega for a wedding, and we needed someone to care for our dog for the weekend. Yuwadee was quick to respond to my request and did a great job caring for our dog. We have never boarded him and hope to never have to with caring people like Yuwadee, who will take our loving pets into her home and care for them like they are her own!
Morris was treated like a member of the family. It was as if he was at his own home. He was allowed on the furniture and was spoilt (in a good way). He was sad to see us leave but Yu gave him a lot of love and attention.
She regularly sent us updates and photos which meant a lot. I would definitely recommend Yu to watch your dog. She was awesome and I will most certainly recommend her services to anyone who loves their dog.
Our dog just had another great stay with Yu. It was so wonderful to see how excited our dog was to be back at Yu's home. I had no worries leaving him.
Yuwadee was an excellent host! My dog Lucy loves to run and so she was in doggie heaven. Yuwadee is very easy going and took excellent care of my Lucy and took many pictures to show how happy and what a fun time she was having. You can tell she loves the animals and is excellent at handling them. If we come to Dahlonega again we will certainly take her back to Yuwadee's Haven for Dogs!
Yu is excellent ! Dakota has a great time with her!! She sends pictures of Dakota playing! Also resting and eating! I think Dakota thinks he's on vacation!
I am a regular client of Yuwadee :) Yuwadee makes all our travels more enjoyable because we know our fur baby is safe, happy and very well taken care of. My dog Charlie loves Yuwadee! and I am so thankful she loves him :) Dana Valentine
We just left our puppy with Yu for the first time and were very pleased. Our pup seemed to love his vacation- we received several pictures via email every day. It was very reassuring to have daily contact with our pet sitter while we were out of the state. We highly recommend Yu as a pet sitter. I think our pup came home happy and cleaner then when we left him...and with homemade puppy treats too.
Yuwadee kept our little "Dom" while we were gone for 3 days. This was his first experience staying away from home. I would like to say Yuwadee did an amazing job of taking care of him and she is so caring to her furry babies. I called (as a worried furry mom) everyday most of the time at least 2 times a day checking on him. Yuwadee sent me many pictures with updates on how he was doing. We will definitely let Dom stay again with "Yu". Dom had a great time. Thank you "Yu"
This was my first time using DogVacay in general and I had the best experience with Yuwadee. Yuwadee was extremely accommodating, from taking my dog (Maya) in last minute to dealing with Maya's disability. She handled everything very well, was extremely friendly, and even sent me pictures afterwards of Maya having a great time. If I am in the area again, I will definitely be using Yuwadee!
excellent, thoughtful caring for your dog(s). yuwadee provided daily pictures so you are able to tract their days in her care. when you find a sitting service of this caliber you feel fortunate. highly recommended.
Yu is awesome! Roscoe just loves her. You can tell she takes great care of him and she spends time with him. We will always use her. This is truly home away from home for Roscoe.
Yuwadee is fantastic with our fur babies! Peanut walked right up to her and let her pick him up. He doesn't do that with anyone! She takes them for walks every day in her large fenced in yard. She keeps in regular contact and sends pictures daily. Peanut needed to take two medications while they were there and she had no hesitation giving it to him.

Our two Chihuahuas had a lot of fun with her and her dogs. We will definitely use her again!!
Yuwadee is the best dog sitter ever! She kept my little poodle for 9 days. It was the first time we had left her. I received pictures almost everyday along with a report on how she was doing. On the day I picked her up, she had given her a bath.
Yuwadee is so good with dogs. Rosie was very happy when I picked her up! Thank You so much!!
I am so grateful to have found Yuwandee!!
She is so kind to my dogs and takes such good care of them. She has a wonderful home and 5 acres of fenced in yard for them to play. She even taught our dog a new trick!
As long as she is in business I will never consider using anyone else.
She text and emailed me updates with pictures everyday. I loved seeing their smiling faces :)
Yuwadee did a great job with Roscoe. He was treated like one of the family. She did a great job of keeping us updated with pictures and messages. Roscoe will definitely stay again. He absolutely loved it there.
Yuwadee was so helpful and caring- and it's obvious that she loves dogs! She was very quick to respond to my questions and easy to communicate with. She warmly greeted Porkchop, and happily reviewed what the typical day was like for dogs staying with her. She made sure she knew what Porkchop was used to as well. She was even kind enough to check in and send pictures of Porkchop romping and resting. Porkchop will definitely stay with her again!
I highly recommend Yuwadee for your dogs home away from home! Rosie had never played with other dogs and I was a little worried she would get hurt because the other dogs were so much bigger ( she is a toy poodle ) but Yuwadee sent pictures to assure me she was having fun. Yuwadee's house is very clean and she has 11 acres for the dogs to run and play. I will be taking Rosie back when we go on vacation and also for a play date! Thank you Yuwadee for taking such good care of Rosie!!
This lady is absolutely the best!!! Dakota had a great time!! She played so much with him. She sent pictures and text every day he was there! I am so thankful for Yu !! No worries and excellent care!! I will use her any time I have to leave my baby,Dakota !!
Nala absolutely LOVED her time with Yuwadee. She had her own mountain vacation running around the woods, playing with other dogs and warm, comfortable accommodations complete with lots of attention from Yu. Oh - Nala was also returned to us cleaner and softer than when she arrived. :) I am grateful to have found Yu on DocVacay!
My English Bulldog, Buster stayed with Yuwadee for 10 days. Almost everyday, Yuwadee sent messages updating me about Buster and sent photos. She definitely loves dogs and they love her. I was a little worried that Buster wouldn't want to come back home because of the fun he was having interacting with her as well as with other dogs. She has such a kind heart as well as her husband. They both make you feel very welcome in their home. She took great care of Buster and was very professional as well as personable. I highly recommend Yuwadee to anyone that needs a dog sitter.
Yuwadee and her husband were great! She sent daily pictures showing what a wonderful time Budget & Ruprecht were having. She definitely made me feel at ease leaving my fur kids for the long weekend knowing that they were being taken care of. There also on 9 acres, 5 of it which is fenced in, so my dogs had plenty room to play and go on daily hikes with Yuwadee. Definitely recommend her!
Our Toby had a great two night stay. Yu takes her on hikes and she has a huge fenced area for her to play. My wife and I are so happy to have found such a wonderful place to leave our dog when we leave town. Toby would never be able to handle a typical kennel so this is a huge relief for us.
If you are like me, you don't like to ever have to leave your dog. However, Yuwadee is just like family. She really goes above and beyond to make sure your dog is cared for the way you expect. The numerous pictures she sent each day were a real comfort. Timmy came home tired but happy from all the play time. He'll be back soon so he can have fun again with Yuwadee and her pups.
Yuwadee really loves dogs and the dogs can tell! Timmy really enjoyed his play date even though it rained all day. Yu sent lots of pictures of all the fun they had together. I appreciate the attention and spoiling of my little guy and he can't wait to stay with Yu again. Thanks for taking such great care of my precious pup. A very happy day indeed!
Our Toby had a wonderful stay today with Yuwandee. We look forward to leaving Toby with Yu in the near future for an extended visit.
Everything was great as usual... Sheltie had a great time and I felt good knowing Yuwadee was looking after her. AAA+++
She was awesome, i could tell she was very attentive to george when she met him, she had a very genuine caring nature and sent me update and pics, and was very accomodating !! She had a big dog Barney and george loved the company, that why i use dogvacay, he gets to run and play and be outside with other dogs, george is very social...and he gets to come inside when he wants as well!! Love the property that the house is on! She has huge fenced in nack yard!!
Dixi really enjoyed her stay with Yuwadee. And I apreciated the updates with phtos. Yu is great with dogs and I will be calling her next time I must go out of town.
Yuwadee is great with dogs! Sheltie really seems to have enjoyed her stay and she made some new friends as well! I also appreciated the updates with photos. Chuck
