About Carolyn

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I both grew up with dogs, and we love being around them every chance we get. We have been watching dogs on Dogvacay for over a year, and we have experience with many dog breeds from Great Danes and Pit Bulls to Collies and Chihuahuas. We welcome dogs of all breeds, sizes, and ages.

My husband and I are both PhD students and have flexible hours so we can usually provide 24/7 care. We live in a large dog-friendly house with a big fenced-in back yard and a few acres of woods with trails behind the house. We have an extra living room in our house entirely dedicated as a doggie play area, which comes in really handy on a rainy day. Our neighborhood is nice and quiet with almost no car traffic, so your dog can have a relaxing time on their daily walks with us.

My husband and I also live with two close friends who are both dog lovers. With so many dog lovers in the house, our dog guests enjoy being the constant center of attention!

We currently prefer to have only two guests at a time unless they are repeat guests or same-family dogs. We do our best to match our guests by size and personality. We are very flexible about pick-up and drop-off times, but we sometimes count it as an extra night if your dog comes very early the first day and leaves very late on the last day.

If you have more than two dogs, or you are planning a trip longer than 10 days, we offer a discounted price per day. (However, we don't offer any discounts during holidays, or in cases where our guests need to stay with us by themselves.)

Carolyn is absolutely amazing! She was our first dog vacay experience and exceeded our expectations without a doubt. She texted us throughout the day, sent us amazing quality photographs of her playing and we could not ask for more. Ava is quite the day, sent us amazing quality photographs of her playing and we could not ask for more. Ava is quite the energetic pup and when we pick her up she is completely exhausted, letting us know she got great attention and exercise. Can't say enough positive things about Carolyn and how much our mind is at ease when she is watching our fluffy best friend.
