About Dina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Lively with sounds of birds, dogs and loving people. I have loved animals all my life and have volunteered for many animal organizations such as, Animal Life Line and AARK Wildlife Foundation along with The Seeing Eye Association where we raised seeing eye pups. We have rescued over 50 animals over the years and continue to do so. I have fostered many dogs and cats and birds. We also just added to our home, a Parrolett, which is a very small parrot named Aries. We will care for cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, rodents and are not limited to dogs. We have a large FENCED in yard (the satellite picture does not show this, it's new) and a non smoking home. All dogs are supervised 24/7 and walked and never just left in the yard by themselves. We do not cage them unless it's part of their routine. We are also very flexible about pick as long as it's not after 9PM. Drop off times can be as early as 6:00AM and take last minute bookings as long as I am not booked. Due to the fact that I have two dogs if my own, I like to only take two or three additional, it is better for the animals that way.

Having Dina watch over our puppy George was a great decision! We felt comfortable and she made sure our pup was loved and taken care of. She kept us updated with how he was doing and sent us pictures as well. I couldn't have asked for a better care giver!

An excellent experience. Dina was so caring and wonderful with my dog. He loved his walks and his time there. I would highly recommend Dina. The next best thing to home.
This is the fourth time we've left Dylan with Dina and her husband for extended stays of a week or more. Dylan has always been exceptionally well cared for. Thanks Dina!
Dina and her family were great with our energetic Vizsla! Her dogs put up with his puppy antics, and Dina and her family made sure Waffles got the exercise he needed with play time in the yard, long walks, and romps in the dog park. We will definitely book with them again!

Tessa (our 1 year old Morkie)had a great time during her 9 day stay with Dina. She was well cared for, and it was clear that she enjoyed her time there. We received frequent pictures and updates throughout our vacation. We highly recommend Dina!
Dina was just wonderful. From our first meeting we knew she was the right fit for Bella. She has a great knowledge of dogs and we could tell she truly loves being around them. Bella had a wonderful time while at Dina's and we were kept at ease with many updates of emails and pictures through our entire vacation. When we picked Bella up we could tell immediately that she was happy and at home there! We highly reccommend Dina!

Dina was amazing and really cared for our dogs as if they were part of her family. Daily updates (with pics) provided kept us in the loop so that we weren't constantly wondering how they were doing. We truly enjoyed our time away more because of the care, affection and attention our little ones received. We can't thank Dina enough!

It is very evident that Dina and her husband are animal lovers. My pampered pooch could not have been happier with her stay with Dina. Thank you so much for putting my mind at ease through pictures and emails - and I could see that she was loved and cared for to the same degree that she is accustomed. We have already reserved our next dogvacay with Dina!

Dina is great! We left our puppy with her twice and she was awesome, sending us pictures and updates on him often. We are going for our honeymoon in June and Pepe will stay with her again! We strongly recommend her! Thanks so much Dina!
I'm so happy to have found DogVacay and Dina. Gracie seemed to feel right at home and happy. The fact that Dina sent us updates and pictures while we were away made us feel even more at ease about leaving her. We will definitely want to book with Dina the next time we need to go out of town :)

Dina and Keith are wonderful! MacGuffin spent the day at their house and loved playing in their yard. We came back to a happy, tired puppy. We couldn't have asked for more :-)
wonderful Maggie loves being at Dina's home. Very well taken care of and loved
Dina always makes my dog feel at home!
Thank you Dina for yet another wonderful stay for Roscoe! It's so great knowing he is in such capable, caring hands and given so many opportunities for play and love, even trips to the dog park. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It helped us relax even more on our vacation knowing he was being so well-cared for!

Dylan was well-cared for and had a great time at Dina's for ten days. He had lots of dog friends, lots of running around in her backyard, as well as at the dog park. And he ate and slept well. He seemed very happy there. We'll definitely be back!
Dina took excellent care of our dog, and provided regular updates (and pictures!) of our dog's visit. She is very attentive to what the dogs needs are, as well as noticing any behaviorial cues. Would recommend her!
This was our first time using Dina. Our dogs were very well taken care of. Dina and her husband are very experienced and loving dog owners. They have a very large back yard and two adorable dogs. We highly recommend Dina, and would definitely use them again.

This is the second time my pups have stayed with Dina, and I'm sure they are already looking forward to their next visit. When you're away, it's so nice to get photos of your dogs running around playing... and photos of your exhausted dogs draped over the furniture.

And as far as reserving, communicating, picking up and dropping off--I'll just say huge thanks to Dina for being more organized and less forgetful than I am!

Thank you Dina and Keith for taking such wonderful care of Roscoe. It's such a relief to know that he is in such kind, caring hands while we're away. He loves it at your house, with friends to play with and lots of cuddles. He misses you already!
Dina and Keith were so amazing with our boxer, Ernie. He blended right in with Oliver and Piper and came home pretty tuckered out, the sign of a great time.

In addition to staying in touch with multiple pictures and emails, Dina and Keith treat your baby like their own. Ernie was walked and cuddled with, even adopting Dina while he was there!

Thanks so much for taking such good care of Ernie!

This is at least the 3rd time we've left Roscoe with Dina and it was a great weekend for him! He got many walks, play time with friends and wonderful care while we were away. It's such a comfort to know he's in good hands and not in a kennel while we're away. Thanks Dina!

First of all, Dina is a lovely person to communicate with and very responsive. We had our meet-and-greet set up within days of our first contact. It was clear at our first meeting that she would treat my two dogs as her own. They stayed with Dina and her family for 12 days, and they were 12 carefree days for me. I missed my hounds, but I was never concerned about them, as I would have been if they had stayed in a kennel--wondering if they were getting enough attention and exercise.

My 1-year-old whippet had an excellent playmate in Oliver, one of Dina's two sweet dogs. Exercise is a big concern with an energetic puppy, but I had no doubt she was keeping busy when I would get a photo from Dina showing her sleeping, draped over a human lap.

I will definitely be contacting Dina again when I need to be away from my dogs.

Dina and family are becoming Teddy's second home, he loves them and they love him! I can go on vacations and business trips without feeling guilty or worrying which is such a relief. We are so happy and pleased with their care.
My family and I were extremely happy with Roscoe's care while with Dina and her family. They truly treated him as if he were part of their family. We were updated regularly with reports and plenty of cute pictures. Roscoe loved spending time with other the dogs. Dina and her family are dog lovers and Roscoe benefited from this love. I think he was a bit depressed when he came home! We highly recommend Dina and Keith and family, and plan to use them again in the future. Our peace of mind while away was priceless.

What a pleasure this experience was, for us and our two dogs. Dina & Keith were perfect hosts, keeping in touch with us by email throughout our trip and even sending us photos and videos of the dogs playing. They have a great home with a big enclosed yard, so the dogs got lots of outdoor time. Dina sent me her concerns about one dog that led us to identify a seasonal allergy, so her perceptiveness was so very helpful. A great place for our beloved pups!

Dina and family/dogs were fabulous! She sent pictures every day and I felt totally confident my dog was in good hands and enjoying his "vacay."
Dina and her husband were so accommodating for my last-minute request, and my dog Dylan had a fantastic time at their house! It was like going to a doggie spa -- great backyard, kiddie pool to hang out in, and lots of attention and play. He's fast asleep now, with a big smile on his face. Thanks so much for a great day!

Dina and her family were so great and welcoming to our dog, Gary. It was comforting to know he was in good hands! When we arrived to pick him up, I don't think Gary even wanted to go home! Thanks again!
Dina and Keith were wonderful when they watched our dog Roscoe. They were very responsive, professional and asked all the right questions. And I could tell that our dog was treated very well and enjoyed the experience thoroughly. They will be my go-to people whenever we need to board our dog.

I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Nothing can be as reassuring when we're away as knowing our dogs are with a loving family. We got photos of our dogs playing and hanging out while we were away that made us certain we'd struck gold with Dina and Keith. Our dogs looked happy, healthy and at home.

Dina and Keith were awesome hosts! Very happy to have found them. They were very easy-going and made sure that our dog got lots of attention and love. Will definitely use them again!
