About Anna

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have my official Commercial Kennel License from the city of Crystsl, MN! Woohoo!

Ever since I was little I've had a special place in my heart for dogs. Now, I'd like to offer you and your dog a special place in my home! My goal with Canine Comforts is to help you, the owner, feel at ease about leaving your pet in the care of someone else. Whether for a day or a couple weeks, I strive to provide a safe, secure, fun home away from home for your pet. My flexibility allows me to cater to the needs of you and your pet specifically.

Hello, I'm Anna. I'm a stay-at-home mom with two young boys (Cole 4 yrs and Keagan 7 yrs) and a huge heart for dogs! My kids and I just love throwing the ball in the yard, going for walks down to the dog park, and snuggling with our furry friends. I've hosted over 50 different dogs in my home and keep adding to that each year!

I not only have a deep passion and love for dogs but also a good working knowledge of breeds, behavior, and problem-solving.

I do not claim to be an expert or a professional but I work hard to expand my knowledge with every dog I encounter as well as seek out sources of information whenever I can.

My backyard is fully enclosed by fence. Half is 3 ft chain link and the other half is 6ft cedar privacy fence.

I will gladly take up to 3 dogs from one owner. I will give you my multi-pup rate in a custom quote. I do not discriminate against any size or gender.

*My apologies, at this time we are not accepting Labs.
**All dogs must be potty trained, please

Anna is very flexible, and clearly loves to care for animals. She has a great fenced yard, and my dog adapts well to Anna's home and environment. My dog has stayed with Anna more than once, and each time has been a positive experience. Anna is also quick to respond to emails/requests, which is much appreciated.

Anna was amazing from the beginning meet-and-greet through the reservation. Not only was she professional, she was very knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors. My dog does not like boarding facilities and is usually a nervous wreck when I pick her up. For that reason, it makes me nervous leaving her places knowing she isn't happy. Anna sent me updates on my dog including pictures which put my mind at ease. For the first time, my dog was not a nervous wreck when I picked her up which tells me that Anna and her family took wonderful care of her! I will definitely be using Anna's services again!

Anna took excellent care of our little pup. It was much appreciated!
Anna did an amazing job with Nova! This was our first time using Dog Vacay, and Anna made us feel so comfortable. Nova came home happy, healthy, and tired. Would definitely go through her again!
Anna is friendly and accommodating! She was super flexible and able to help us out last minute when our regular gal broke her foot and was suddenly unavailable. Summit came home tired and happy. We've added her to our favorites and will definitely book with her again! :)

We always feel good about Anna watching our lab Kylee. Kylee has a lot of energy and we know she gets a lot of exercise and attention while we are away.
Our dogs mean a lot to us so it feels so good when you find a person to care for them that you can trust. Anna was so easy to work with and she had a natural understanding of the dogs and the people involved. We will see Anna again and I know our dogs will be happy and safe.

Anna was friendly and accommodating, and our dog came home tired and happy. We'll definitely book another stay with Anna the next time we go on vacation.
Anna is the BEST! She is so great at communicating with us and the dogs love her and her family. We have no worries when our loving guys are with her. This is our third time with Anna and will use her always. Thank you so much Anna for having them!!

I am quite protective of my dog, so I am very careful who I allow to watch him. Anna is second to none with her care and love for the dogs, but also her ability to control them to keep them from getting aggressive with each other. I was definitely not disappointed with the care or service! My dog almost didn't want to leave!

Lindy came back happy and tired! Anna was very flexible with us when a snow storm threatened to delay our return.
Anna is kind, competent and knowledgeable. Our Sheltie stayed at Anna's house for three days and came home happy and tired! I'm not sure if he had more fun with Anna's two dogs, or her two young boys. It's nice to have him stay in someone's home rather than in a kennel. The next time we go out of town we'll have him stay with Anna again.

Lindy came back happy and tired! We plan to use Anna again :)
Anna cared for my little Ruby for 7 days (days only, not nights) when our normal dog sitter was away. Anna was highly recommended from a neighbor and I was very happy with how much she communicated proactively about Ruby's visit. She did a great job introducing Ruby to the other dogs one by one. I loved that she sent me pictures of Ruby having fun with the other dogs. It was really great for Ruby to spend so much time with other dogs, she had so much fun she was tuckered out by the evenings. :) Big thanks to Anna for being such a great doggie daycare provider for our family!

Anna is great! Bodie will definitely be back!
Our 5 year old lab mix had a wonderful time! Thanks Anna.
Once again, Macy had a great time with Anna and her family. It's good to know that we have a place to take her where she is comfortable.
Macy loves her stays at Anna's house. When she comes home, she's worn out from hanging out with her friends.
We're always nervous when our dog stays overnight at a new place. She did very well at Anna's and came home happy and tired.
Macy loves to visit Anna. She has a great time there.
Awesome dog sitter, gave me pictures and updates. Very trustworthy.
If the fact that he lost weight (from exercise) and was tired for a few days after we got home, our dog had a wonderful time! We would recommend Anna to anyone looking to have their dog well cared for.
Macy had a great time. She enjoys meeting and playing with the other dogs. She'll be back.
Anna always does a wonderful job taking care of Fergie!
Anna was great! Nice back yard, other dogs to play with. She sent daily messages with pictures. We felt very at ease and our dog was very happy. We noticed the transition after was easier on him rather than when he is in a kennel.
Anna was great with Cesar! She sent photos so we knew he was having a great time. He loved to play with her two dogs and another guest dog. He came home tired and happy.
Anna did a great job with Del. She sent plenty of pictures showing the activities and a very tired pooch. Her dogs were excellent playmates for Del and he came home ready to rest.
My little 10-pound doggie had a wonderful time! She was happy and healthy and tired from all the fun activity with Anna this week. Will definitely book again !
Both dogs came home worn out so there was plenty of play and love. Just as we had hoped! They seem to be looking for their new friends around our house. Thanks for caring for our pets as your own!
This has been Teddy's second stay and he does wonderful! Anna is great!
Anna was wonderful ...Maile looked better than when we left him. He was a bit tired probably from having dog friends to play with and a yard. All positive....we will be boarding with Anna again when she is available.
Anna did an amazing job with Madison!! As soon as we met her, we felt Madison was in good hands. We loved that Madison had such a great stay with her and her family, that we will be booking repeatedly. Thank you Anna!!! :)
Anna did a truly fabulous job with Logan!! He and Rufus played so very well together; it was obvious that they were having fun! Thanks again for your help with our sweet boy; getting away for the weekend was fun, and knowing he's in good hands helps so, so much!!

On very short notice, my husband & I found ourselves invited to a MN Gophers football game and pregame party. We didn't want to leave our girl alone for that long. I called Anna and she was very accommodating. I was very impressed with her online bio and more so when we met her. Although Obi was with her for only half a day, I knew she was in good hands. Obi and Anna's dog Rufus got along well and she was exhausted from playing when we came to pick her up. Anna also had a fenced in yard which made me feel more comfortable. When in Minneapolis, we will call Anna and canine comforts. Thanks Anna.....woof!!!

Anna's careful but laid-back attention to our dog was so greatly appreciated! She handled everything with me so professionally, but everything with my dog so personally!!! Cheyenne looked better when we picked her up than when we dropped her off, since Anna took care of brushing her! :)
I knew Cheyenne was in good hands with Anna, and I was right! I think Cheyenne is missing all her new friends!!!! I would recommend Anna to anyone who needs their dog boarded! The whole experience was loving and caring toward us and our pup!

We had a wonderful meet and greet with Anna. My dog, Logan, and her dog, Rufus, got along great. Anna emailed me ahead of time to ask if it was okay if there was a family dog in attendance on his first day. We were nervous but agreed, and when we brought Logan to his vacation stay, he got along great with both dogs!! She asked where the kennel was, and when it was obvious that we forgot, she was so accommodating and said that she had an extra that she could use for him. We were willing to go back, but it would have taken time out of the day to run back and retrieve it. Two days before the end of his stay, Anna was kind enough to call me when she thought Logan injured his paw. Both of us suspected that he would pull through, and he did. But I was grateful for the heads up in any case. She sent a few pictures of him enjoying his vacation, and I'm saving one on my phone because it was obvious that he was having a good time with Rufus! I am so very pleased that Anna watched our Logan!! I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Anna was wonderful to accommodate a last minute vacay request for us. She was great with our dog and we knew that we didn't have to worry about him at all while we were away! We would definitely book with Anna again in the future.
Anna was great and very accommodating to the needs of our dog.
