I have a rescue dog and was very concerned about a placement for him when I went away for a few days. When I contacted Carol, she responded promptly and suggested a meet-and-greet so that Max and I could get to meet her and her dog. She was very reassuring and I felt much better about leaving Max with her. While I was gone Carol sent me a daily photo and note about how Max was doing. She took him on daily walks and never left
him alone. He was so comfortable with her that he
didn't appear at all affected by my absence! I will certainly use Carol again - she and her husband are definitely loving, caring people.

I wrote a long, impassioned review a year ago when we used Carol for our dog Tyson. It didn't post for some reason but I'll try again to convey what Carol means to our family. I needed a very last minute reservation. We were going to FL and I was dreading sending my senior dog to doggie day care. When we picked him up after our FL trip the year before he had terrible diarrhea & a swollen paw he couldn't put weight on When we arrived he was hysterical, crying loudly, clawing to get out of the building, almost escaping into the street! He wanted out so badly. It ended with a $600 vet bill!
I was dreading leaving him again and almost didn't go with the family on vacation until someone mentioned DV. It sounded perfect! Now I had to find someone who was willing to always be home due to his severe separation anxiety. I was so lucky to find Carol. She and her kind husband were both so patient and understanding with Tyson. And their dog Jama is the BEST DOG EVER! She welcomed Tyson like he was an old friend! Even though she was bigger, stronger and half his age she knew how to play at just his level. She was so good with him. I just love her so much!
But the true test was when I came to pick him up. Both he & Jama happily wagged tails & said hello but within about 2 min they forgot all about me & were happily wrestling again! I was thrilled! An added bonus, Tyson looked great! 10+ mile walks had him looking trimmer and more muscular! This family loves dogs and it shows!

Our dog was a rescue and as such as some neurotic tendencies and anxiety. She needs a special touch. When our usual sitter was busy, she recommended Carol. After meeting Carol and Jama, I knew our dog would be in good hands. Carol clearly did a fantastic job - Orion got plenty of exercise and wolfed down her food (when she normally just grazes all day). Big thanks to Carol for keeping our dog safe and happy!
