About Carla

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a very strong passion for pet care and training, and I bring over fifteen years of experience handling and caring for dogs.

I offer private lessons in Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Obedience, Problem Solving, Dog Walking and pet sitting services as well.

I love being around and caring for animals, and I would be thrilled to care for your pet (training, walking, general care, etc) while you are away, or whenever you need expert advise and care for your pet. I provide 30m walks 4 times a day around the block and park.
Play fetch outside and dogs can run a lot on my big backyard.
Will take dogs to run errands with me.
I provide Reiki (energy healing) for dogs that have anxiety.
I like to give your dog a mental and physical stimulation while he/she is in my care.

Thank you Carla for taking such good care of Clancy. She loved staying with you which was evident on the videos you shared with us. Like home to home. She loved playing with the other dogs. It was very organized, comfortable and controlled in your home. Will be back with Clancy for another stay.

Carla's service is a bit more involved and detailed than just dropping off your dog at a nice person's house. Not all dogs qualify, there's a thorough evaluation process, vaccination records are required. This, combined with her dog training expertise, makes this a very professional pet sitting experience. I appreciate the genuine interest Carla has in a dog's behavior and preferences, even though she is skilled enough to figure it out.
Carla was so warm and friendly and has a great rapport with the dogs! She is very knowledgeable about their behaviors and careful that each dog will interact well with eachother! We were leaving our dog with a sitter for the first time and she made all of us feel very confident. We saw pictures and videos while we were away and he was very happy with his new buddies! I think Carla is awesome!
I was VERY nervous about leaving my dog. I had never done it before. Carla sent me pictures daily and was very nice when I had any questions about my dog. I enjoyed Carla's updates and I think my dog had a good time! ;)
My pup had a great time! Carla is very kind, understanding and seems to really care for each dog. She set up a play pool outside and let the dogs splash around, then sent pictures to me throughout the day to show how much fun my dog was having. Would recommend to anyone!
Carla is a very professional, responsive and thorough dog caregiver. She considers your dog’s personality when making decisions to ensure that your pet has an enjoyable and stress-free stay. Having left our dog with Carla for the first time, we were so grateful to receive pictures and updates from her. We will be using her services again in a few weeks.
Best person ever to leave my dog with, I never worry about my dog! My dog enjoys it so much he wants to stay there forever, not to mention he made some best friends there!
We had a great experience with Carla. Boscoe is a handful and she did a great job with him.
She was wonderful with my dog and my dog is always excited to see her
My pet looked healthy and happy and I was not worried when I was away
My puppy looked happy and healthy when I picked him up. Gives me peace of mind
It went well. My dog looked very healthy and well taken care off.
We were in the area for the day and needed a place were Kobi would be well taken care of. Carla was great and if we are back in the area and need a place for Kobi to hang out, well... we would choose Carla again.
She is wonderful! I knew my dog would be looked after with a lot of love and care! I was not worried a bit and he had a great time with Carla and making new friends
Carla is wonderful. Our dogs had a great time with her.
Great stay. My pup came home very happy.
Our Leonberger had a wonderful stay with Carla! Considering this was her first stay away from home, and she is a rather large dog, Carla expertly cared for her. As a family, we loved getting the many update photos that Carla sent to us. Knowing our sweet girl was happy, allowed us to have a guilt-free vacation!
jax had huge separation anxiety the first day but Carla was able to help guide his behavior and help him adjust to his new environment . Carla is exceptional dog Vacay host . I was out of the country and she kept me posted on his needs and sent me lots of pics . Carla gave me good tips to avoid future separation anxiety etc ... I would highly recommend Carla to all furry pet owners !
Perfect stay for Harper.. thank you Carla
Carla was able to schedule a stay for our dog last minute. She was amazing throughout the week. She sent updates and pictures which made leaving Billy much easier. Her house was clean and organized and she was more than capable of taking care of your pet. She exercise the dogs throughout the day and he came home looking great! I would have no hesitations leaving him with Carla again and I'm sure he would look forward to it as well!!!
Mollie had a great time during her stay at Carla's. It was a very first time we were leaving Mollie for more then 3 night and we were all very nervous. Carla put all our worries to end. She is knowledgeable, caring and very dog oriented host. Mollie was happy, playful and true to herself when we picked her up.
Thanks, Carla.
Carla was awesome, my dog Chase had a wonderful time, and she helped me out with a last-minute holiday booking. Would definitely recommend!
Carla was wonderful with my dogs. She kept my wheaten and yorkie for 10 days over Christmas. She was very thorough during the meet and greet and made sure she had everything necessary to care for them while we were gone.
My dogs loved all the walks and the loving care Carla gave to them. She kept me updated and sent pictures while we were away. Her home was very clean and very dog friendly. We will definitely use Carla again. I Highly recommend her!
Carla was the first host that we've used through DogVacay for our 16 week old puppy. We were worried about leaving him with anyone as he is still not fully potty trained and has just been getting used to the crate for sleeping. Carla was very helpful in getting our little guy more trained with the pads and also with giving us ideas on how to train him in other areas while we were away for 3 days. He absolutely loved being at her place and she was extremely kind and flexible with our last minute work schedule. We'll definitely use her again in the future!
