About Carmen

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

Hello everyone,

Welcome to Carmen & Abel's Doghouse we have recently devoted ourselves 100% to being the best dog sitters on DogVacay. Abel takes on caring for your pet as a full time job and I when I come home from work I help Abel care for your furry friends. Your pet will only be unsupervised (sometimes) up to but no longer than 3-4 hours if unless we have to run an errand or get groceries. This is a perfect place to leave your furry friend that has separation anxiety since they're is always someone home. We have experience with dogs 7 years. We own dogs of our own and understand how nerve wrecking it can be to leave your pet with a complete stranger.

We are here to gain your trust, ensure your dog is comfortable and has the a great time as well. We will also provide pictures of your pup during their stay. Although we are not professionals we will try to capture some quality memories and provide them each day.

Our dogs are super friendly but if you would to keep your dog separate due to age and personal preference for a more comfortable stay it is not a problem. Our dogs are kept in kennels in their room over night and are let outside during the day for playtime and restroom as part of their daily routine. Your pet is allowed to roam the house as to what they are accustomed as if they were in their own home and are allowed on furniture as long as you allow it.

Please note at any given time we can have up to 4 guests at a time if booked especially during the holidays, If you feel more comfortable we can make accommodations such as your pet being separate from others or paying a higher rate to only have your pet over night in our home . We have multiple rooms in our home to separate each guest if needed and for feeding! Abel is always home to help with meet and greets during the day, Pick up & Drop offs, feeding, and potty/playtime breaks.

How great is it to know your pet is in of two sitters for the price of 1! We are very flexible with Meet & Greets and Pick up & Drop off times. We have a large secure yard for all types of dogs to enjoy, whether your furry friend is considered tiny, small, big, or huge. We also accept any dogs with special needs and have experience with different dog personalities.

We strongly recommend your pet is on flea prevention provided by your vet. Over the counter prevention is not as effective! Our pets are on preventatives and yard is sprayed as well. Our area is surrounded by the woods and have caught sight of deer(very rare) but we do recommend oral treatments such as Trifexis and Bravecto.

Please message us if you have any questions or are interested in booking

We hope to hear from you soon!

Last minute bookings are welcomed! :)

She did excellent we love it
Carmen was great to work with and was super flexible with our situation. We have a new puppy, and we didn't want her to be around other dogs just yet, so we asked Carmen to dog sit at our home for a few hours. She made a custom quote for us, and it worked out really well! We're grateful for her help and for taking such great care!
