About Candy

43 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have grown up with dogs all my life. My daughter in law calls my home a dog's country club. I live in the country on the Bayou Teche. I have an acre and a half fenced in. I have a doggie door that is open while I am home. I have tile floors . I walk my dog everyday in the cane fields. I do leash work with dogs. I am a gardener so I am outside most of the day and always have time to play with the dogs. I do have caged African grey birds in my house. It is not unusual to see a dog sleeping on my sofa. When it is warm dogs swim in my pool. I have a separate fenced in area for my chickens and peacocks as well as my garden. I just lost my labradoodle due to kidney failure, which was genetic, so I can take care of your sick dog. I have taken care of all size dogs and all my children have dogs of their own. I love people that love animals and have told my children to live where animals are allowed. Most people find that their pets have gone on vacation while their owners are on vacation. I am usually a 30 minute drive from Lafayette but well worth it! Once a dog has stayed at my home their owner says when they come back that their dog knows where they are going and start wagging their tail! Take a ride to the country and know that your dog is on vacation while you're on vacation!

Great experience for Sambeaux. He didn't want to come home. Highly recommended.
Candy is the best. She really went above and beyond! I was so worried when I was going on vacation to find somewhere my dog would be safe and feel comfortable. All worries were alleviated when I found Candy. She met my dog, Dallas, and they clicked from the beginning. Dallas responded so well to her - it was amazing! I know I can call Candy if something comes up. I love knowing when I go on vacation my dog can go on vacation as well. Dallas learned new tricks, and she came home exhausted from playing on the bayou with all her new friends. Candy is dependable, loving, and compassionate. I got photos every day I was away from her, and that was truly the highlight of my day. If you love your pet, you will love having them stay with Candy. I will refer her to anyone and everyone.
Our dog, Maggie, loves going to Candy's! We enjoy seeing all the pictures and videos of what she's doing!
We could tell from the daily photo updates that Maggie was having tons of fun on her vacay: Walks twice a day with doggie playmates, canoeing and tree climbing! We were even a little concerned that she would rather stay with Candy and Ray than come home! But no worries, she was happy and excited to see us, and ready to come home. Dogs are a lot like people that way, no matter how much fun you have on vacay, it's always to get home!
Candy's house is doggy paradise! She has tons of knowledge about dogs and is great with them. We will definitely be using her again!
This was my first experience with DogVacay and it was awesome! Candy is a true dog person and took excellent care of my dog; like he was one of her own. She provided multiple photos/videos of my dog walking in the cane field, swimming in the bayou and exploring her property. I love knowing my dog is being exercised and not just laying in a kennel. I highly recommend Candy and her doggy country club; it is definitely worth the drive.
I was fortunate to have seen Candy's place on Facebook. My dog, Lucas had a great time there. I was sent videos and pics 2-3 times a day. He had been depressed since he lost his best friend Roxie in Feb. It gave him a chance to play with other dogs. He got plenty of exercise, and I will definately bring him back there next time I go out of town!!! Very satisfied with Candy and her place on the bayou!!
Our dog had a blast!
Candy did a great job of sending me pics of Gus' stay and updates with how he was doing. He was totally relaxed and treated like one of their own! I would highly recommend sending your dog on vacation with Candy!
Candy's place is a real life doggie heaven! There is multiple places for my dog to swim in at her own choice, a nice clean swimming pool, a nice big bayou access that is guarded by a fence so no alligator concerns eating my dog, and another fish pond in her jungle garden. There are trees to climb and all this is in a fenced in area. I know my dog felt like she was a wild dog with to many options of fun for her to have. All in all I felt so great to know my dog Teche had all this at the tips of her paws she truly loves staying at Candy's Doggie Country Club!
