About Carole

I would love to take care of your indoor dog in my home during the day and/or overnight while you are on vacation. I would prefer a SMALL or MEDIUM size dog as our house inside has limited space for a large breed. I will abide by your rules, and will give extra loving care, lots of attention and playtime as well as frequent outdoor walks in our big yard. Our yard is not completely enclosed, so I will need to use a LEASH for walks. Even though your dog may stay by you at your home, I would be afraid he/she would be distracted in a new environment. We also have a sidewalk and long, blacktop circular driveway for walks. You may call anytime while you are away to check on your dog, and I will send pictures and communication as often as you'd like. I have cared for dogs recently and in the past, one at a time, while the owners were on vacation. I am willing to watch more than one at a time only if they are used to being together and get along well. I recall always having childhood pets and, as an adult, have owned pets for 12 years. My most recent dog was a little Bichon Frise. Your pet will get extra special attention and love since I have no animals in the home at this time. The attached pictures are of guest pups relaxing and playing, eating and going for walks. PLEASE CHECK WITH ME ABOUT AVAILABILITY AS THIS CALENDAR IS NOT ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE. I also keep a Cancellation List, so I'll contact you if dates you need open up.

Our sweet Layla spent almost 2 weeks at Carole 's lovely country home. Carole is a loving caregiver.
I feel like we absolutely found the perfect care giver for our dogs while we were on vaca! We were really scrambling on what to do and were going to be worried on vaca. Carole really made things SO comfortable for us. Reservation setup was smooth and easy. We did an initial visit so she could meet the dogs and they could get familiar with the home. Carole was very flexible in drop off and pickup times to work around our flights and flight delay getting home. She is very thorough on making sure she knew their habits, when and how they slept, were fed, were walked, etc. The dogs were SO well cared for and seemed very happy. Carole sent daily updates and pictures which was awesome! For her and her family to watch our dogs over the Christmas break...during a typically stressful and family time, we just cannot thank her and her family enough.
I know that if we need to have a care giver for our dogs again, Carole will get the call...I just pray she is available when we need her! :o)

Our dog Louie loves Carole! Carole took great care of Louie and sent pictures with texts to keep us informed.
Carole G is pawsome! No worries about the care of our girl. She was spoiled with lots of belly rubs.
Carole is great! Louie our pug loves staying with her.
I am always at ease when Charlie is at Carole's! I know he has a buddy in Carole :)
Thanks again Carole! Louie had a wonderful time.
My Charlie (and I) LOVE Carole! She is sweet and as soon as you meet her, it's easy to tell she really loves dogs. When I drop off my little guy, who is shy and a bit of a scaredy cat, I know he is in great hands. Charlie is treated like one of the family and adjusts quickly and easily to being in her home. I appreciate and enjoy the pictures and texts Carole sends to keep me updated. She is always my first choice for taking care of my puppy!! Thank you Carole!!

Carole is super nice. Her house is very warm and welcoming. Carole figured out Pom loves to look at birds through the window and moved his bed to the kitchen window (from her bedroom at night) every day so he could watch the birds on his familiar bed. I couldn't take better care of my baby.

Carole was wonderful. We received updates on how Buffett was doing during our trip. We would use her again.
Carole was just wonderful with our dog Louie. We received text messages & pictures during his stay which really put our mind at ease. We will definitely recommend & use Carole's services again!
Was truly pleased with Carole, she was exceptional with our dog Gemma. I felt she cared for our dog with much love and care. THANK YOU CAROLE!
Carole was great! She did well with Rosie and asked for some ideas when Rosie was reluctant to eat. She sent pictures and feedback every day. I won't hesitate to leave Rosie with her again!
Carole was awesome! It was our first time with her and she was very attentive, caring, and overall has a real nice vibe. I could tell Sirius had a great stay with her. I received pictures and updates while I was away, and it really gave me peace of mind. I would definitely recommend her :-).

My dogs had a wonderful stay with Carole! The communication from her was awesome. She let me know throughout their stay how they were doing, and sent pics of them as well. When I picked them up I could tell that they felt at home. Bailey and verm will definitely be back!

We were very happy with the care our dog received while with Carole. She took great care of Charlie. It was obvious that he settled in and became part of their family. Carole was also very good about sending us emails and photos throughout the week that we were away. In the past we have had family and friends take care of Charlie while we were gone. When it became clear that was not possible this time I experienced quite a bit of anxiety. I heard about DogVacay on the radio and decided to check it out. After the meet and greet I felt immediately comfortable with Carole; and so did Charlie. It was a huge relief to know he was happy. I highly recommend Carole and will definitely use her again.

We went on almost a month long vacation and Carole took care of Eddie for us during the entire trip. She was very loving to Eddie, as evident from her pictures and email updates she sends us periodically during our time away.
It was the first time that Eddie has been away from home for this long. However, he did really well and ate and slept without problems while he was with Carole.
We are planning another trip in April and will definitely use her again!

Our Charlie (and we) LOVED Carole (and her family)! This was Charlie's first time away from us and Carole and family made his experience awesome. They were very loving and caring to Charlie, as could be seen by how he interacted with them when we picked him up. Carole also sent pictures and a sweet update to let us know how our little guy was doing. We will definitely have Carole puppy sit again!! Thanks Carole and family for allowing us to have a much needed family vacation :)

Our family was traveling this Summer to Ireland and England and would be away for three weeks. Leaving our wire-haired fox terrier, Shelby, (1 1/2 years old), in a kennel for that timeframe seemed to be unfair and we felt that it would prove very stressful to our pup! We were so happy to find Carole on Dog Vacay! We set up a meet and greet so Shelby could meet Carole at her home. Carole asked questions about Shelby's habits and her usual routine; you could tell she was truly interested in providing excellent care and that she wanted to make Shelby comfortable in the new environment.

Carole sent us emails and pictures of Shelby several times a week and stayed in contact with us, which alleviated all anxiety of being away from our pet!

Carole provided excellent care and we will definitely be a returning customer!! We highly recommend Carole. Your dog will be in excellent hands and will receive extra attention!
