About Carol

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a retired lady, currently with no resident dog(s). This is the first time in my life that I have not had my own dog and really miss that companionship. I currently have Cody, an 18 year old tabby cat who has been around dogs all her life. We love having company in our fully fenced yard with doggie door access. I have been caring for dogs all my life and truly enjoy their company.

If you are a new client, please select the "Request Free Meet-n-Greet" option (below the Request Reservation or Instant Booking) before making a reservation. I would like to meet both you and your doggie pal(s) to ensure we all feel comfortable with our arrangements.

FYI: I only take spayed/neutered dogs.
Thank you!

My dog had another great stay with Carol! My year old Lab had so much fun playing with the other dog guests--she came home pretty tuckered out
Carol was awesome! I don't think I could've found a better person to watch my beloved dog. My dog totally bonded with Carol and had fun playing with the other dogs. Carol treats the dogs with special care and attention. And I was never worried the entire time about how my dog might be doing, which is very unusual for me. She also sent me pictures and little movies of my dog which was really sweet and kept me connected.
Carol is amazing!! Max my 8 month old Labrador full
of energy had his first visit with Carol. He had a few incidents. That being said Carol put him next to her bed at nite to make him more comfortable. I found
my sitter!! Couldn't be happier. Oh, love the pictures
and updates daily also..
It's great. We really appreciate Carol's help.
Our dog Sadie had never been boarded before. I really cannot tell you how happy we were with Carol, and how everything turned out. Sadie had a good time I'm sure. Thanks Carol for caring so much.
I was a bit nervous about leaving Lucy for nine days with a new sitter. At the meet-and-greet, she immediately took to Carol and I felt better about leaving her but still a bit nervous wondering how she would do for a longer period. Needn't have worried. Carol regularly sent pics and updates and the only concern I had was that Lucy would rather stay with Carol rather than come home! Will definitely use her again.
Eddy seemed to really enjoy himself and I loved that Carol said how good Eddy was. She sent some pictures of him while we were gone. We're very happy with the care Eddy got.
I have a 9-month Lab rescue that had only been with me for 6 weeks. She is very sweet and still adjusting to her new life. I needed to travel for business and found Carol through Dog Vacay. Carol is very knowledgeable about dogs and is very experienced in working with and caring for dogs. Being young and in training, I know Carol went above and beyond to patiently work with my pup and help her adjust to this new situation. She frequently sent pictures and updates, and it was so comforting to know that Carol was taking such good care of my dog while I was away. We will definitely book another stay!
This was our first experience with Carol and it was awesome. At Carol's house, it's all about the dogs! She has the perfect personality and philosophy to do the job right. At the meet-n-greet we were impressed with the cleanliness of her home and property and we feel she takes her role as dog sitter seriously because of the investments she has made to dog-proof her home. Because of Carol, we were worry free on our trip out of town. What a blessing to have Carol in our area and we will use her again and again and we will definitely recommend her to others and . ~Virginia W.
Carol has a beautiful house and yard, and was friendly and personable. We had a met n greet one day prior to boarding, and when we returned the next day, my dogs were both excited to be back at her house. I was very pleased with communications during their stay, and feel comfortable with the personalized care they received. Thank you, Carol!
Carol is wonderful. The dogs are always very happy after a stay with her. She knows how to handle dogs and provides a very safe comfortable environment for them.
Griswold always has a great time at Carol's. We know he is taken care of and feels comfortable there. He is always happy to run inside. Carol is also very flexible and a pleasure to work with. We are so lucky to have her services and highly recommend her!
Carol was great with our Jack Russell, Sydney. She was caring and doesn't let the dogs misbehave which I love! I Will recommend her to my friends. - Lori - Richland, WA
Our elderly labrador seemed to be very at ease and comfortable at her stay and with being away from her family which we thought would be very difficult for her. We feel she received lots of care and comfort during her stay, along with meeting some nice new doggy pals. We would love Carol to be able to watch our dog again, should we ever need to go away. She was very flexible with us and our schedule.
My McKenzie is shy dog. Even though she was OK with Carol. Will continue to ask Carol to take care of McKenzie.
Henry's stay with Carol was amazing as usual - he is as happy at Carol's as he is at home and he literally dances for joy when we get to our house. He's always happy to see us when we get home too, but he's obviously loved and well cared for when we're away! The pictures and emails from Carol are so nice when we miss our puppy!
Great place and wonderful lady. Will be using again.
Great place for your dogs. Carol is very friendly and loves all dogs. Photos sent daily to make sure your pooch is happy and having fun. Nothing but good stuff. Will be using her again.
Our Labradoodle had a great time playing with the other dogs. Carol took him for a long walk allowing him to get a lot of exercise. Her house is a beautifully clean home with shaded backyard allowing our dog to be out of the sun. Highly recommend her.
Carol is great! This was the first time we had ever left our 10 month old Cockapoo an I felt at ease that he was being cared for so well. She took him for a five mile walk and worked on some of his mischievous puppy behavior. She also sent me daily updates.
Carol is a great Dog Sitter.
My dog Millie is well taken care of while I'm gone. Sometimes another small dog is there which she usually has a great time playing with.
Its really nice having someone you can depend on to take care of your pet and not have to worry so much. Carol is very good about sending pictures to show me what Millie is up to. I love seeing those and it helps me not to worry.
I highly recommend Carol.
Kip stayed with Carol for 5 days she took such good care of him even letting him sleep in her bed one night when he was restless. My dog is 14 years old and has been boarded only 2x in his life, so I was a bit nervous leaving him. Carol made him so comfortable giving him his own comfy chair to sleep in ! I will never have any concerns again leaving Kip, as long as it is with Carol. Thanks so much Carol.
We were in need of a last minute dog sitter. We scheduled a meet and greet and reserved the day for Ziggy to stay with Carol. Ziggy only spent the night and when we picked him up the day after we could tell he enjoyed his stay. He settled in with the other dogs and when we got him home he was one tired puppy from playing all day. Carol is a wonderful sitter and we could tell she loves all the dogs who come to stay with her.
Thank you Carol, Rowdy really enjoyed playing with the other pup while staying with you and Fox really enjoyed the break from Rowdy's playing with him. Shelly
Carol is great. Max had a wonderful time with her and her dogs.
Our almost year old high energy Henry is always happy to see us when we get back from travel but he literally dances when we get to Carol's and take him out of the truck for his stay with her. Henry is so excited to go to Carol's - he knows he will be loved and cared for and will have other dogs to play with which is an added bonus for him. Carol walks hm sometimes and he has ample playroom. She sends us pictures so we know how happy is is while we're away. Henry plays so hard that he usually takes a few long naps after we get him home.
Again, I give Carol a "5 Pawsome!" for Toby's second experience at Carol's his "home away from home"! He is so well cared for and always makes new friends there. I loved all the photos that she sent me with newsy informatiion about how he was doing! Thanks Carol and dogvacay!
Toby was well taken care of and absolutely loved being at Carol's lovely home! I give her a 5 star "Pawsome" for making Toby feel so comfortable in his "home away from home"!!
Carol is an excellent dog sitter. My dogs feel at home in her care and I did not worry a bit. I would love her to watch my dogs again.
Thanks for the doggie training and walking. We will do our best to keep it up.
Carol is extremely knowledgeable about dogs. She translates this knowledge into kind and loving care and limit setting with my dogs. I highly recommend her. She is just fantastic! Sharon Myer
thanks Carol
Desmond loved his time with Carol. He felt at home while mommy and daddy were out of town.
Very good, Carol is a great sitter. Millie was well taken care of. She had little playmate that worked out really well.
We had a very good experience with Carol. Her home was set up perfect for my 2 dogs, Carley and Marley. They came home very happy after a 3 night stay! She sent pictures and updates to us each day we were gone. Carol is very friendly and made us all feel right at home. Would highly recommend Carol to my family and friends and will come back again!! Thank you soooo much!!!
Carol is amazing! Our Jack Russell mix rescue is a puppy with high energy and is lacking in social skills - a prior attempt at visiting a kennel only lasted 3 hours so we were desperate to find the right care solution and that's exactly what we found with Carol. We picked up a tired, happy puppy who made dog friends and played for the weekend and it was all due to Carol's expertise with dogs - she is the best!
Carol is the best. When we leave Jack with her we have no worries. She takes such good care of him.
As always, we left our Lilly in Carol's care without giving it a second thought. We know she's in competent hands and feel very comfortable knowing she will be well taken care of while we're away. We love knowing she's in a safe, home environment, and that she has other dogs to play with. She's always happy and tired when we pick her up.
Benji adores Carol and so do we!!!
Carol is the best. She deals with my very shy dog so well. I feel so safe and secure leaving my dog with her!!
Carol was very flexible, friendly and professional parson. She posted pictures of our dog during her stay and updated her status. I am very happy with her.
Carol is very accommodating and loving to all the animals. My Lola loves going to Carol's home and seems very relaxed when pick up time comes. This week she didn't even want to leave with me! Carol is great!
We were really worried about having to leave our Pomeranian puppy with someone we really didn't know. But, we suddenly had to make an unexpected trip and finding quality care for Sienna was our primary concern. I found Carol on We read her bio and really liked what we read. We arranged a "meet and greet" right away and Carol replied quickly. We all felt very comfortable with the arrangements and Sienna seems to have flourished while we had to be away.
When we picked Sienna up last night, she was excited to see us. She looked great and got along very well for the nine days we had to leave. When we brought her home, she explored as usual and let us know she felt it was time to go the bed and our regular time.
We would not hesitate to use Carol again. The notes and pictures she sent us were a joy to see! This was definitely a good experience for all of us.
Carol is a very loving and caring animal caregive as evidenced by her fifteen year old Cavalier. Sienna enjoyed socializing with the other dogs. We feel being with other dogs was just what Sienna needed to miss us less.
A great experience all around. We would highly recommend Carol to other dog lovers in need of excellent pet care!
Beverly and Richard H.
Carol was fantastic as usual! She took Finnegan for a 5 mile walk and I picked up one tired pup!
Carol was awesome like always.
Carol was AMAZING as usual! I love picking up an exhausted doggie!!
Millie had a great time at Carol's house. Carol is a very good pet sitter and knows a lot about dogs of all kinds. Millie is looking forward to her next visit! -Mac
Awesome like always! Gisel is always happy and energetic when we get her back Carol.
Thanks Carol
Gisel had a great time here. Glad that you are in business!
Kona loves to visit Carol and play with other dogs. Carol does a great job of keeping us updated.
Kona had a great stay with Carol. She ate well which is always a concern when she's in a different environment. Carol was very accommodating as we had Kona's groomer come by a few days and take Kona for her daily walk. Carol was able to walk her a couple days so our growing puppy got plenty of exercise between playing with the other dogs & getting her walks.
Carol was so sweet and I felt very comfortable leaving my energetic pup in her capable hands! It was wonderful to receive updates and photos! She even helped with a behavior issue.Finnegan will definitely stay with Carol and Gala in the future.
Carol was great! She was quick to respond and very accommodating to my special circumstances. Her home was clean, comfortable and dog friendly. The yard was fenced and clean with a doggie door. She did a great job making Uncle Dennis feel comfortable, at home and entertained. I would definitely use her again.
This was the first time we left our 3 yo lab Margie anyplace other than at our own home AND it was for 10 days. Needless to say we were very nervous and were worried that she would never forgive us. All for naught, as it appeared she had a pretty darn good doggy VaCay herself. Plenty of doggy friends and doggy play. Carol sent pics and updates every other day, which was extremely reassuring. When Marge's new best doggy friend "Blue" left, Carol took her for walks because she was acting bored. Much appreciated. Carol's house is spotless, the yard clean and secure with doggy door access for doggy pleasure. My only regret is Carol is already booked for our next vacation :( - I may have to rebook!
Maxi felt right at home as soon as she arrived. Carol took her in as if she were her own pet. She worked with Maxi to acclimate her to the rules of the house. We're grateful to have been able to leave Maxi with Carol and to get regular updates on her stay.
Carol is the most wonderful person. Very warm and caring. I couldn't have imagine what I would have done without her. My Macy is the dearest little thing to my heart and I was so comfortable leaving her in Carols care. After only one visit Macy was pushing off me the second time just to get to her door first, in excitement to go to carols.

Thank you so much. We will be back,

Once again, very special. Thank you.
We had a great experience leaving our dog with Carol. The house was clean and didn't smell of "too many dogs". Great outdoor area for the pooches. We will definitely use carol again when we're in the area
Carol is very helpful and knows what to do. Our dog was nervous after we left. She knew how to get him calm, keep him calm, and then integrate him into the temporary pack that was there. We felt he was well taken care of and we will work with Carol again.

Carol took wonderful care of my two toy poodles, Chloe and Leo. She is very knowledgeable about dogs and sensitive to their needs and issues. She made them feel at home and comfortable, providing them with a secure, clean, loving environment adjusted to their individual personalities. She sent me pictures several times while I was away with reports on how they were doing and their activities, which helped to ease my mind while I was away. I would feel very comfortable leaving them with her again and would recommend her highly.
Although we left our puppy with Carol a couple times before this trip this time there might have been too many dogs at one time.

Kona came home and quickly showed signs of kennel cough. Her vet asked if she was around other dogs and of course we said yes.

I would also be willing to pay for a private walk each day at the pet sitter.
Thank you so much for making Maggie's first visit so special. We were so concerned she would keep you awake. She ate her dinner as soon as we got home and is now sleeping. Looking forward to our next visit in October.
Carol is a fabulous away-from-home dog parent! We recently inherited our 8 yr old Shih Tzu when my mother died. So, as you can imagine, Bridgie was still mourning her loss. In just one week, Carol's home atmosphere, even with other dogs around, made this quiet, reserved puppy happy, bouncy, and greatly restored! And we're so grateful! We'll definitely use Carol's services again!
Carol is very sweet with my dog Lola. I feel secure knowing my dog is being well cared for. She comes home happy, and when I go to drop her off she's running to Carol's door she's so excited!
Carol was terrific! She sent photos and videos of Belle, and had suggestions for us when we returned. We will definitely use Carol's services again in the future! Thanks so much for taking care of our Belle!
Carol was excellent. We went out of state for 4 days and I didn't worry about a thing. Isaac was so happy to see us and I could tell that he had a great time.
Denver had a great time while we were gone for 7 whole days! I think he even got a bath. Thanks Carol.
Seve enjoyed his "home away from home" thanks to Carol! He had lots of playmates and the freedom of the backyard. He was glad to see me when I arrived but showed no signs of stress. Seve will definitely be visiting Carol again.
It felt so good to drop my shy, timid dog off at Carol's home. Right away the other dogs greeted her, and I could tell she felt comfortable. Carol is so nice, and I felt good about leaving my dog in such good hands! I really appreciate the fact that Carol provides a safe, comforting place for dogs to play while their owners are away.
Carol was more than patient with our 4 month old Berner puppy - Kona. She let us know what we need to work on in her future training. We appreciated her regular photos and updates. It truly takes a dog lover to keep three dogs and two of those puppies for more then a couple days. Carol's home & yard are well kept. We hope to have Kona stay with Carol again this summer.
Lilly's stay with Carol went very well; probably a bit better for Lilly than for the other dogs who were staying the weekend because Lilly tends to be a 'bossy' little terrier; however, Carol does a great job of dealing with/accommodating all of the different personalities, which no doubt, can be a challenge. Would not hesitate to book another stay and have highly recommended Carol to our friends as well.
Carol is excellent. This is a great choice of places for a "dog vacay".
Lilly's stay with Carol went very well. We feel extremely comfortable leaving Lilly in Carol's capable care and comfortable home and have already booked another stay for her next month! It's a huge relief to know we have this option here in the Tri-Cities when we need or want to travel without Lilly.
Carol is great with dogs and provides a perfect environment. Toby had a wonderful time. We hope to use her often and would gladly recommend her to anyone looking for a safe and pleasant stay for their dogs.
Our dog was well cared for....Carol has a great home to entertain our four legged creatures! We hope to take advantage of her hospitality again!
Carol responded to our reservation request right away and when we needed to adjust the dates she was happy to help us figure that out. Denver is a 4 month old golden and very full of energy. Carol was great with him and at the meet and greet we could see right away she had great command of the dogs. She also spent the time training Denver which helped us out a lot. Carol has a beautiful home that is perfect for hosting dogs. Loved the fenced and gated courtyard in front of the house perfect for keeping dogs safe from the street and also the doggy door to the back yard. We loved getting the photos everyday of Denver playing with the other dogs. He had a blast and we will definitely be using Carol on future trips!
My dog Lola had an enjoyable time with Carol and the other dogs. She was well cared for and had no problems. Carol has a wonderful demeanor and we enjoyed her services. Will definitely be using her again.
Carol did a wonderful job caring for my dog, Bailey. She was very good with her and even taught her a few new manners. I could tell Bailey was happy with her stay by all the pictures and notes Carol sent me while I was gone. Sometimes I even wondered if Bailey was having a better vacation than me : ).
This was Tucker's first stay with Carol and I could tell that he couldn't have been taken care of any better. Frodo and Gala are such easy going dogs and Carol is clearly a dog person and very loving to her pets. I received photos and messages from Carol while away letting me know how Tucker was doing which was really nice and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend Carol as a sitter to anyone.
my dog was well taken care of
Carol was awesome! It was nice to get pictures o our Dakota while we were gone. Dakota fit right into Carols home and had a stress free week. Carol is clearly a dog person and falls in love w/ all her dog guests. This was the first time we used dog vacay or Carol. She will definitely be our go to from now on!
Carol & her pets was very friendly & welcomed Cheyanne into their home, I received pictures while Cheyanne was on her Dogvaca, Carol has a lovely backyard completely fenced in with no escape routes for mischievous pets, Very happy with the overall experience since it was my first time leaving Cheyanne with Carol.
Our dog came home happy and healthy It seems like a great place to us We appreciated that Carol sent pictures and let us know how it was going
We have never left Lilly with anyone since getting her as a puppy over a year and a half ago. Needless to say we were a bit nervous but after our meet and greet with Carol and her two dogs, we felt very comfortable with her and booked an overnight stay. The stay was a success and when we picked Lilly up she seemed perfectly content. It's very comforting now to know we can go away for a few days and leave Lilly in Carol's capable hands!
Cassie had a great time and Carol sent pictures while we were away, which was great
Carol is awesome! She was very accommodating and even sent us pics of our doggie playing with the other pups in her backyard. If you're looking for an alternative to the standard, cold, caged kennel, I highly recommend her services. Thank you so much again Carol, you've made us and our dog very happy.
very good, it worked out great
We went out of town so Taffy got to spend the night with Banjo, Gala and Frodo. They seemed to have a lot of fun together :)
My dog had a great time! We felt he was safe and well-cared for. We would not hesitate to use Carol again!
Taffy enjoyed her visit!
Taffy was well taken care of. The host dogs are very nice and gentle to her but unfortunately my dog was too shy to play with them. Maybe they will play around more next time :)
We left our 10-year-old Golden with Carol for five days while we attended a wedding. Our dog loved both Carol and her own two dogs. She gave him much more than minimal care, treating him to trips to the dog park and swimming. Twice while we were gone, she was kind enough to send us pictures of our dog at play and rest. Carol is friendly and fun. We thank her and highly recommend her as a pet-sitter.

ps - We have to travel an hour each way to drop our dog off and pick him up at Carol's. It's completely worth it!
