About Carol

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Walk on the beach! Swim in the pool! Go to the park! Give your dog a real vacation with complete confidence that he/she is in a loving family home.

We offer more than 40 years experience with dogs and we love them all. Our four kids ages nine to seventeen swim, snuggle and play with the dogs, too, with adult supervision 24/7.

Daycare and/or boarding includes 2-3 walks per day as well as all the swimming, fetching and lying around on the couch your dog can handle.

We also do home visits and dog walking. We are crazy cat people too! We will be happy to visit your kitties while you are away.
We will send you pictures of all the fun so you'll never have to worry or feel guilty about leaving him or her.

I'm always hesitant to leave my beloved dogs with anyone but carol was great and my dogs seemed to have enjoyed themselves. I felt so much better about leaving them because I knew they wouldn't be in crates. Carol updated me on how they were doing and told me my little dogs slept with her under the covers which is what he does at home. That made me feel great to know he was so comfortable.
Felt very nervous about leaving our dog with someone we didn't know. After talking and meeting with Carol we knew our beagle Willow would be in good hands. Will definitely use Carol again.
As always we had another positive experience with Dog Vacay. Carol, her husband and the kids provided a warm friendly environment. Always better than the metal cages at the standard kennels.
My girls were totally worn out when they got home from their vacay with Carol and her family. This is by far the best dogvacay in central Florida. I highly recommend them.
We left our puppy girl with Carol and her family for the weekend. She was very well taken care of! She was the smallest of the dogs there but from what I hear, she had fun! They took her to the dog park and let her run around, and she got to sleep in the house at night. She came home happy and exhausted! They're wonderful, nice people who took very good care of our baby girl.
Since I was traveling from out of town, I booked Carol sight unseen using reviews on this site. My dogs were unsure at first, but by the time I needed to leave, they were fine and seemed to do well overall. I got regular updates and photos that showed that they had made themselves at home! Thanks Carol!
Carol was extremely hospitable and flexible with me. There is always someone there looking over the dogs. Dogs have areas to roam in back yard and play. Thank you for looking after my Jack for me Carol.
Carol provided a pleasant experience for my dog. She was reliable and professional. I would definitely request her services again.
Only a one night stay so not much to say. Minor wait on pickup time was due to broken doorbell, not a problem. Dogs seemed happy
We appreciated getting photos of Jack during his stay with Carol. I hate to be away from him, but sometimes it is necessary. It is good to see that he was comfortable.
Carol & John were great with Brooke. I was nervous about leaving her, but Carol was confident Brooke would do well. When I dropped Brooke off, she had "a moment" with one of the other dogs that worried me. But John assured me it was only because I hadn't yet removed the leash, and Brooke would do well. Sure enough, they were right. Brooke had a great day and slept extra long that night thanks to all the excitement in her day. She's going back real soon.
Carol and her family were great with Luke. He had such a great time and was able to do his favorite thing - SWIM! He even slept in the bed with Michael. Luke was definitely treated as part of the family.
We love Carol so much. We are going to do day care so Jackson can have fun when I can't spend as much time with him as he wants. He loves Carol's dogs and going to the park with them and swimming in their pool. I would give 10 paws if I could.
This is my dog's new home away from home. He fit right in with the pack, and made friends right away. He went to his favorite park. He swam in her pool. He slept with her son. Thank you Michael for sharing your bed with my dog.
Carol and her family were wonderful hosts for our dogs. She made sure that we were kept up to date on how they were doing, and tested them like members of the family. Ricky and Maddie hate going to the kennel, by they really enjoyed themselves staying with Carol and her family. We will definitely be using her again!
Carol took great care of Kiba! I was on a bind and Carol was friendly and patient with me being a first time user of the site. Would use her again and highly recommend.
Carol is a dog lover and took great care of my GSP....
My dog was well taken care of and seemed very happy when I arrived to pick him up.
Carol and her family were a lifesaver when our lab babysitter canceled. We loved that they are near a dog park and have the perfect yard enclosure for the pets to play! Highly recommend!!
Loved that CJ had such a great dogvacay and got to play with dogs his own size. Carol has the perfect yard and location to a dog park. Wouldn't hesitate to take him again. He has been asleep 2 hours, so I know he played hard!
I live in Atlanta and had unexpected emergency with a family member being placed in ICU in New Orleans. I ended up needing to pick my parents up in Ormond and go to New Orleans. I was worried about where to put my little dog, Penny, since we'd be at the hospital the whole time.

Beach Livin' Dogs was perfect! I was already a jumble of nerves and Carol was so incredibly kind to take Penny last minute. She sent me lots of pictures throughout the trip which also calmed me. Great place!
Bear, my Welsh Corgi, loved Carols house. After picking him up he was the calmest he's ever been. He got to go to the dog park and play with other dogs for 4 days!. I would definitely recommend Carol and her husband!
Rusti had a great visit with Carol and her family. We received pictures and updates, and Carol was very accommodating and flexible. We recommend her highly.
Ms. carol is awesome... I had never tried any sort of petsitter, and I was leary of an online service but ms. carols house was clean, organized and very dog friendly. the back yard fenced in area was especially nice and well lit (i dropped my Homey off at 830p) the other dogs were clean friendly and well behaved. I didnt even see any cages or tie-out stakes of any kind and all of the dogs were immediately receptive to my dog's arrival. Homey stayed overnight and they went to the dogpark. Ms. Carol had a pool and asked if he liked to swim but i think it was too cold and rainy to swim that day.... as soon as I arrived to pick him up her first words to me were, "He is so sweet, he is always welcome back...."... if you need a great pet vacay person in the flagler/daytona area.... Ms. Carol is the one!!
Love Carol, she is so caring and interactive with the animals. Her entire family cared for Melody, so she wasn't just a "boarder", she was a member of the family
Carol was extremely helpful in helping us organize our Lab's vacation stay in Florida. This was our first experience in vacationing with our dog close by and also our first experience with DogVacay. Carol explained the process of registration, as well as followed up with us to ensure we were ready for our vacation.
Carol also provided a loving home and a welcoming play area for Maggie. She was also extremely helpful in mentioning the Heartworm medication which we had not thought of being we are from Canada.
Carol took Maggie to a nearby park twice a day for a run with other dogs. We were able to visit Maggie at our convenience including a couple of trips to the Dog Park ( a well planned and laid out park for big dogs and separately for small dogs ).
There were no surprises and when we picked Maggie up she was happy and healthy.
Carol is a knowledgeable and caring person for any dog large or small. We thank her very much for everything she did for our extended stay.
Tonka had an amazing time with this vacation stay.
Carol was fantastic with our pug, Gunny. He liked Carol, her family and the other pets there. I will definitely call Carol again when we are in the area to watch Gunny.
Melody seemed to have a wonderful time and the pets that live there are very friendly and laid back. Loved having pictures sent to me while I was on vacation!!! The entire family was very nice and seemed very responsible, multiple walks a day, trips to the dog park and even a pool if they want. Will definitely use again.
So happy to have found Carol. She was able to keep our dog with no advance notice. Carol sent updates and pictures daily, to keep us connected with Brody. I would highly recommend Dog Vacay.If you are in the Daytona area look for Carol,she and her family were awesome. I know our dog Brody had a blast. Thanks again for loving our dog as much as we do.
