About Caroline

19 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, dog lovers!

I have a quiet, safe, and dogfriendly house with a fully fenced yard.

I also have a cat, so cat-friendly pups only, please.

If your dog loves to walk or go to dog parks, then you've come to the right place.
Gabe and I freaking love to walk. Your dog will get walks, OH YES.

And the pets. And the loves.

We will all have a ridiculously good time, because I'm only 25 percent doing this for retirement money, and 75 percent because when I dog-sit for friends, I simply want to cry when they take their dogs home again. I love to sit. I want to sit YOUR DOG. Good boy. Woof.

Some important business-y stuff:
-I have a new kitty. If your dog likes to try to stuff kitties in his mouth for fun, you might want to look for a different sitter.
-I charge for half days. For example, if you bring your dog to me on Friday morning and don't pick her up until Saturday night, I will charge for 1.5 days instead of 1. Most kennels would charge two days for that, so I have ZERO guilt about that. :)
-Try to bring only the food and bedding that your dog needs. Toys and treats tend to get lost in the fray, and I have plenty of both to keep your dog entertained.
-Please bring a kennel if your dog needs kenneling when I'm out. I work weekdays during the day, and can come home for lunch, but if your dog isn't used to being alone for a work day, you might want to look for a sitter who stays home more.

From the moment Caroline met my pup I knew she would have a great stay with her. Caroline knows dogs temperments and exactly what they would need. She gave my cautious dog a VIP home tour by carrying her throughout the house. Then she was comfortable and loved being with Gabe ( Caroline's dog ) and her cat too! Next time and every time I'm going to Caroline to watch my dog!
Hi Caroline - Thanks for taking such great care of Chop! The updated pictures you took while we were away showed how much fun she was having. Can't wait to go on vacation again Thanks again! S. Puncochar
Caroline was awesome with Carlos. She is patient and calm; and Gabe, her dog, is a good companion host. Carlos was nervous at first, but by the next morning, he looked happy and content in his photo. They walked daily and I am sure she had many conversations with him. When I returned, he barely wanted to leave. I would highly recommend her.
Olive had a wonderful time at Caroline's! She's always relaxed and happy to see us, but I can tell she's also a little sad to leave Caroline and Gabe. :)
Caroline was great at accommodating our schedule and our dog had a very good stay. Happy dog!! Thanks!
Meiko had a great stay! She was happy and tired when she returned. Caroline was a great host, keeping up updated with pics and working with us last minute. Thanks!
Donut had a wonderful time at Caroline's place. She loved her new friends (both dog and cat), and REALLY enjoyed the fenced back yard and frequent walks. Caroline was very accommodating and responsive to inquiries. I also enjoyed getting pooch pictures while out of town. We will definitely be back!
Humphrey always has a great time at Caroline's. We're grateful to have discovered her through dogvaycay and highly recommend her!
Olive always loves it at Caroline's!
Wednesday loved her 6 day stay with Caroline! She had trips to the dog park, lots of walks, and lots of love. We got lots of pictures while we were away, and felt very comfortable that she was in good hands. We highly recommend Caroline, and will use her again!
OIive always has a great time at Caroline's! She and Gabe provide a happy and safe place for Olive while we're away.
Thank you Caroline. Our dog had a great time. We loved getting an email picture daily. We will definitely be repeat customers.
Caroline has always done an amazing job with our dogs. She ensures they get enough exercise, love and attention. She frequently gives us updates so that we can feel confident that our pups are having as good of a time on their vacation as we are.
We love sending our dogs to her.
We miss Olive when we travel, but know she is in good and capable hands with Caroline and Gabe. She always comes home happy and relaxed. :)
Olive is always so happy to visit Caroline's!
Olive had a great time!
Caroline took such good care of Rowan, even administering her eye drops. I'd absolutely have Rowan stay again.
Olive always arrives at Caroline's with a wagging tail, eager to hang with her buddy Gabe. I know she is in good hands at Caroline's.
Olive had such a fun and relaxing time at Caroline's, we will definitely be back!
Caroline did a great job communicating with me, she posted pictures, and most importantly my girls came home healthy and happy!
Olive had a great stay with Caroline and pups. She was relaxed and happy when I picked her up. Caroline kept me up to date with photos and messages, we will definitely be coming back!
Caroline is the best! I couldn't have found a better option for taking Fern when we are gone. I get pictures every day and she is so sweet with her. I get back a dog that is happy and tired. Thank you so much!!
Caroline was great with my big rambunctious doberman, Bravo and Gabe got along well and he definitely came home tired from all the playing. We will be using Caroline again!
Finley came home very tired and had a great time!
Caroline was flexible with my care taking request and gave my two lab mixes a great time with lots of exercise!
Caroline was fantastic! Our boys can be a handful but she did a great job with them! She sent us pics of them on their vacay and took special care to make them feel at home! They got lots of exercise and became BFFs with her sweet pup Gabe. We will definitely be using her again, it was so nice having peace of mind!
Caroline was great! I have a energy filled Australian Shepard and she handled him great. No complaints at all! She was very flexible for drop off and pick up times as well. I will be using Caroline when ever I am in the St. Paul area!
Caroline was great with my beagle. She communicates frequently, I got pictures while I was gone, and clearly my dog had a great time. I am so happy I found her! I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an alternative to boarding. Super affordable and my dog came home tired and happy every time. Thank you so much!
