About Roxanne

Lexie and I want to thank all of our great guests since we started DogVacay hosting, and all of your great reviews! We love seeing them. Thank you all.
My daughter and I live in a small town two blocks from Geneva Lake. We love to spend our afternoons in the summer golfing, kayaking, riding our bikes, taking long walks in the conservancy just next door, and swimming at the beach. We love animals and everything about them! We would make excellent hostess's because we have a great fenced in yard, were steps from the lake, we are very active, and last but not least, we love animals!

Roxanne took great care of my pups (and kitties!) while we were out of town. She gave them plenty of attention and even some extra potty breaks. She kept me updated on how everyone was doing as well, which was greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
Roxanne was great! Bentley had a great time and I was relieved to here that all was well and that they enjoyed having him. Will happily use them again!!
We have a 10-year-old lab mix that is very shy and anxious in new situations. He doesn't like to be left alone in new places. Roxanne handles that well. He is welcomed into the family with her own dogs. He's in a cozy home environment that makes him feel comfortable. While he is not left with a sitter often, I'm very comfortable that he is in good hands at Roxanne's.
Roxanne was extremely accomodating - I set up with her under last minute circumstances and she was very helpful - my dog was a bit anxious that I left her for the evening, but it appeared Roxanne helped her through the ordeal - Thanks a bunch Roxanne
Roxanne, I feel was very dog knowledgeable and knew how to handle my big, hyper dog. Baker came home and basically slept for 2 days straight. Will definitely use her again!
Roxanne has been a great host to our cairn terrier Mattie even when Mattie has not been the greatest dog in the world for her! She always provides photo updates so we can see how Mattie is doing.
It is great knowing Mattie has a home away from home!
My Yellow Labrador, Nicklaus, had a wonderful time on his first stay with Roxanne and Lexie. He has stayed at various kennels over the past 4-5 years and usually he can't wait to jump in the car and get home. In this case, he stood on their porch and defiantly ignored my commands to "come to daddy" and I needed to use a leash to "drag" him to the car. I guess that pretty much told me he didn't have a bad time:) G.
Roxanne is an excellent host. Our meet and greet was fun, Gus got along great with her dog Molly so we knew he would have a good time staying with them. Roxanne was so accommodating with our drop off and pick up times. She went above and beyond to give him a bath to warm him up and get ice balls out of his fur after playing out in the first snow of the year.
We will definitely use her again.
They were awesome! They pulled through on short notice after my previously scheduled sitter had to cancel at the last minute. My dog has never been boarded or kenneled, and she had never stayed with anyone other than family, and never for a week at a time. Roxanne and her family were FABULOUS - they made Bristol feel so "at home," that I was actually nervous she wouldn't want to leave with me on pick up day! In fact, I'm trying to think of a reason to have Roxanne and her family watch Bristol again in the future, just because she had such a great time, and looked happy and content in all of the photo updates that Roxanne sent while I was away. Highly recommend!
Roxanne and Lexie were great with Lulu. We ended up booking for last minute and they were extremely accomodating. Even though our Lulu wasn't a very good dog when they were gone and made some messes (I am sorry) they were patient and kind with her in a new environment. We would definitely use them again!!
Roxanne and Lexi are great hosts! We have had nothing but great interactions with them over the past several years! We love all the great photo updates and have found them to be very flexible with pickup and drop off. Our terrier loves to stay there and stays very active in their back yard!

Thanks for another great summer!
Tyler, Emily and Pearl
Roxanne was very helpful and worked with us to ensure that Hank had somewhere to stay when we were in town for a wedding. She sent over a bunch of photos of Hank over the course of the weekend, so we knew he was in good hands. Hank had a great time playing with the other dogs. He slept for most of our 5 hour drive back home. Thanks for watching Hank! He loved the big fenced in backyard!
Mattie had a great time on her stay with Roxanne. The socialization time with Roxanne's own dog and other client pets was great for Mattie. Roxanne sent us updates almost every day and helped make our vacation a relaxing success!
Treated my pup as if he were a part of her own family! I loved the photo updates and felt very comfortable having Roxanne and her daughter watch my puppy while I was overseas. He enjoyed his stay and I couldn't have been more pleased!
Roxanne and her daughter Lex took great care of our dog Suzi. It is the first time we tried your service and are very pleased. Since our dog is getting up there in years felt the in home service would suit her better than a kennel and we were right.
Everything worked out perfectly even though we dropped off Renney in the middle of a rainstorm. And Renney had a great time. Thanks
Thank you for taking such great care of Fisher.
Roxanne is been a saint! Flexible for drop off and pick up. Fisher is wiped out when I get him back which means he had a lot of interaction and was well cared for. I'm grateful for the photos and communication during his stay. Fisher loves to play with her dog Molly. Thank you Roxanne and family!!
Roxanne and her daughter were great :) She was able to watch my dog very last minute. Her response time was great and made me feel comfortable leaving my dog there. Mya was only there for a few hours but she came home tired and happy :) Will definitely be using Roxanne again!
I picked up Mila a day early. Roxanne reported that Mila was leaking urine and put her in diapers. This was very unusual as she was not leaking when I took her there. I can only assume that she felt stressed. After picking her up, there is no sign of leaking. I take her to other Dogvacay hosts and have never had this occur.
Roxanne was very accommodating to our last minute request for hosting Wilson. He adjusted quickly to their new puppy, and did great. They sent us several pictures to update us while we were gone. I would use Roxanne again!
Great environment and hosts. Marley was well-cared for and we would definitely go back!
Teddy really enjoyed it. I could tell when I picked him up. He was very content.
Chompy is always happy here!
Candee had a wonderful time at Roxanne's house and was very tired when she got home. Thank you again for taking care of her!
Roxanne and her daughter took great care of our dog. He enjoyed the yard and walks by the lake. Felt very comfortable leaving him with them.
This was our first time using a service like this. I have to say, it was great! I'm sorry it took so long (18 days) to post this review. Roxanne and her daughter were great. They obviously cared about our dogs. We have boarded our dogs before at a traditional kennel in the past and the dogs love it and come home fine, but they always seem to have to re-adjust to being back in our home again. Anyone who loves their dogs will notice little things that are just slightly different. It seems to take them a while to ‘relax’ again. When we brought our dog’s home this time it was completely different. It was as if they never left. They were completely relaxed and happy to see us. I love this service. Roxanne and her daughter did I great job. Thank you!
Roxanne seems to understand dogs and is very good with them. This is my first experience with her but plan on using her again soon.
She was very kind and accommodating. I was not attentive to the fact that she has a cat in her home and my dog did not do well with that. She treated my baby well and provided pictures during the stay. Her yard was spacious and she appears to be a true animal lover.
Roxanne and her daughter do a great job taking care of our dog Rufus. This was his second stay with them and it was nice to already have a comfort level with the hosts.
Roxanne & her daughter were very attentive to Mila. She was treated like a member of their family, allowed to sleep on a bed and have the run of the house. They took her for a swim or two and followed up with a bath. Perfect. I would highly recommend this DoggieVacay.
Our little terrier had a ton of fun at Roxanne's! I don't think she wanted to leave. We had great communication and our host was extremely flexible with pick-up and drop-off times! We will definitely reserve again soon!
Awesome experience. I took a much needed getaway to the spa at The Abbey and Roxanne opened her home to my dog less than 5 miles away! Leaving my dog with Roxanne and her daughter was the closest thing to having my dog taken care of in her own home.

I had a perfect vacation and so did my dog!
Roxanne and her daughter treated our dog Max like their own. We got a photo everyday of Max and the activities they did with Max. I wish we lived in the area so we could use them as sitters for Max every time. I would highly recommend them to care for your pet. They are very responsible and love pets.
Roxanne and her daughter were super nice hosts for my doggie Lula. When we went for the meet and greet, I could tell right away, they liked pets. They were very friendly and accommodating. Lula can be a little crazy at times and they were great with her and seemed to enjoy having her around. I was a little nervous leaving her but they sent frequent pictures and updates that eased my mind. They were very quick with getting back to me with answers to questions I had, and were very easygoing with scheduling. I would definitely bring my doggie Lula back to them for another vacay.
Roxanne was great and was very easy going with our changing schedule. She and her daughter took wonderful care of Rufus. He got to go on walks by the lake and play in their back yard. We knew he was in good and caring hands. Roxanne gave us frequent updates too so we knew he was doing well.
Roxanne and her daughter were awesome! Lots of pics each day to let us know Chompy was ok. And they even made her treats on her birthday. Overall would leave Chompy again. Very pleased.
Roxane and her daughter were perfect hosts! My dog had a wonderful time, filled with lots of car rides and ball play.

Their fenced in yard, close proximity to swims in Lake Geneva and house full of friendly critters make this a real vay-cay for doggies.

This will be my new destination for boarding my pup!
