About Kandie

My semi-retired lifestyle affords me the opportunity to provide full-time love and care to our many houseguests. Our home is located in Windswept Dunes, a golf course community located in Freeport, FL. Our half-acre lot and fenced backyard provides plenty of room to run and play. We believe in providing a safe, family-fun environment for our guests, which is why we limit our boarding guests to no more than two at any given time.

We adopted our oldest family member, Rusty, at the age of eight weeks, which was the beginning of my lifelong love of Golden Retrievers. He is the reason I became the foster coordinator for the Emerald Coast Golden Retriever Rescue (ECGRR), located in the Florida Panhandle. The rescue business has strengthened my commitment and passion to help other Goldens. It is a wonderful organization. I encourage you to visit ecgrr.com for additional information.

We do not currently offer bathing/grooming services. I will be happy to take your pet to a groomers providing prior arraignments have been made.

Kandie was a wonderful host for our puppy, Abby! Kandie took such good care of her & we couldn't have felt more comfortable leaving her...we knew she was in great hands. She even taught Abby how to retrieve while we were gone on our trip! We are grateful to have found her & would highly recommend her.

Kandie and her husband Randy are great with our dog Bella. They've kept her two different times now. We love knowing that Bella is being loved and cared for while we're out of town! They always make sure she gets plenty of exercise, too!
Spice had a fantastic time on vacation at Kandie’s. He slept in comfort, relaxed from his stressful life, ran around her big backyard and played with Faith & Rusty her faithful companions. The only thing he may have objected to were his twice weekly baths, sorry about that Kandie. We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that he was being well cared for. The day before we left on Vacation Spice who has allergies, broke out in a flaky skin condition. Kandie had to bathe him twice a week with medicated shampoo, plus give him oral medicines, and eye drops. I feed him dehydrated dog food and canned dog food, along with nutritional supplements, which she was very careful to follow his diet. I feel blessed to have found Kandie and I know Spice loves staying with her and she truly enjoys having him, it’s obvious. I’m already looking forward to our next trip, because I know as long as Kandie can watch Spice I won’t worry.

Kandie was fantastic, it was truly like have the dog whisperer taking care of my baby “Spice”. Spice can be a bit temperamental, he usually greets people he doesn’t know with barking and growling, but none of that for Kandie. I couldn’t be more pleased, when she seemed to just have this calm, assertive attitude that Spice took right to. Her husband and dogs were wonderful too. She kept me updated on his progress as this was his first time away from home and she knew how worried I was. I love the pictures and knew he was settled when I got the one of him perched on the back of her couch (which she took and then promptly removed him so he wouldn’t fall off (he loves being up high). Thanks Kandie, I know for my next trip away I won’t have to worry at all Spice will be in good hands.

Lulu had another great experience with Kandie and her family. This time she recognized the house and its inhabitants, and actually did some running and playing, instead of just moping around. We are so grateful to have such a wonderful place to leave her when we are away from home, especially now that she knows where she it and that it's just her own vacation. We even get pictures of her by email while we're gone! I can't say enough good things about Kandie and Dogvacay, which I have and will continue to recommend to all my dog-loving friends and colleagues.

We couldn't be more pleased with Kandie's service! She responded immediately to our first query and set up a visit before we even made our reservation to make sure Lulu would fit in at her house. We were so impressed with her "dog-centric" home and yard, and her older pets were a good match for Lu. She and her husband are obviously dog-lovers, and we knew Lulu would be welcome there and receive much more personal attention in a homey atmosphere than she could ever get at a kennel. She is always super stressed out after kennel stays, but was her own sweet self when she greeted us at the door on our return. Kandie also took great care to ensure Lulu--who suffers from awful skin allergies--was comfortable. The anti-itch spray I sent with her was not doing the trick, so Kandie obtained something stronger to help the rash. We even got a picture of Lulu via email while we were gone! What a blessing to know we have such a wonderful home away from home for Lulu whenever we have to be gone. I will definitely be sending Lu to Kandie's house during all our future vacations.
