About Channing

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*I live in a spacious two-story home with my husband and our loving and energetic female Australian Cattle dog/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. We have a fenced in backyard where dogs can feel safe to roam where they please. Dogs will never be outside and left unsupervised. I am a huge animal lover and any dog that I care for, even if it's just for a few hours, will feel as loved as if they were my own. My husband is also a huge animal lover. He takes care of the pups just as much as I do. I have been taking care of dogs my entire life but have had the full responsibility of a dog around age 6 (my parents believed that your dog is your responsibility). I have had other pets as well, such as, cats, mice, fish, turtles, bunnies, squirrels, and even a hedgehog. I do work as a teacher during the day but get off at a normal hour with plenty of time to take our Ellie May to the dog park for some socializing or out on our paddle boards for a sunset swim. If your dog gets along well with other dogs and is up to date on all shots, they too, will get to join in on the fun at the dog park. Luckily, they have a small dog park and large right next to each other to take care of every size pup. I also like to take my dog with me to any place that allows pets, like, harborwalk, parks, or outside eating areas.

Great experience! We highly recommend Channing!
Channing was great. My dog was very anxious the first night and Channing contacted me to let me know. She kept me informed and made my dog feel at home. She sent videos and pictures and my dog had a great stay.
Our dog was happy and well cared for while with Channing and her husband and their dog. Channing sent us texts and a video of the fun while we were gone. Super pleased with everything.
Channing was awesome. We had no worries while we were gone about how Sadie would do. She was great about communicating with us about how our pup was. Would definitely recommend her and WILL book with her again. Thank you, Channing!
Channing and her husband took such good care of my sweet dog! They sent pictures and a video ! I didn't have any worries what so ever! I'll be using Channing again! She is a very qualified person to Doggy Sit... Thank you! Channing??????
Toby had a great time!
Channing was amazing! I could tell from the moment I met her that she loves dogs. She asked a lot of questions and wrote them down in a notebook like, "what are your dogs eating habits, where does she sleep, is she good with other dogs", etc. I was impressed that she also sent photos and a video of play time. I was relieved that my dog was in good hands.
Channing brought our dogs home from boarding while we were not able to make it home in time for the short window of opportunity to pick up. She communicates well and we will absolutely use her services again.
Channing was great! She returned messages promptly, was friendly and professional, and best of all, she kept our puppy safe and happy. We will definitely be using Channing's services again!
Wow! We were so impressed with Channing and I know Suki had a great do I know? Channing kept us in the loop with pictures and a video of Suki playing with the other dogs. I had complete confidence the moment we met. I honestly had no worries leaving Suki for an entire week.
We will definitely be using Channing again!
Channing was amazing with Amy! Since we met she showed as a very responsible person and her love for dogs was clear so I wasn't worried at all while Amy stayed with her. She texted me videos of Amy playing and replied fast any texts. Amy came home very calm and didn't show up any signs of stress which only reinforces my previous comments that Channing is an amazing person and dog sitter! Will definitely ask her to watch Amy if I ever go back to Destin, FL.
Channing was simply awesome. If our little Yorky was able to speak, she would most likely say what a wonderful time she had with her stay with Channing and her husband. It was actually the first time when we came to pick her up and she wasn't super anxious and running to get to us. We would highly recommend Channing to anyone who feel like their pet is truly like one of the family. We will definitely look her up on our next stay in Destin.
God Bless them !!
Channing was fantastic. She took great care of my pup. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her
Cash had a great time playing with Channing's dog Ellie. I received frequent pics and video 's as well as texted updates. I will certainly use Channing and Vacay again.
Channing was awesome. She was very accommodating and friendly. She updated us throughout our boarding with her. I highly recommend her if you're going to be visiting the destin area. Your fur baby will be in good hands.
Channing was amazing with Abby! She sent me text and picture updates of how Abby was doing, which gave me peace of mind as I was on vacation. I highly recommend Channing to take care of your dog(s).
Channing took such excellent care of my sweet dog Jack. She messaged me almost daily with photos and videos of my dog having a great time and being spoiled by her. She even sent us home with some yummy homemade pup treats that my dog absolutely loved. I highly recommend Channing and will plan on using her for all of our future vacations. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Bo had a great time and loved the treats! Thanks again Channing!
Our little Priscilla had a great time with Channing! She is the best !
We will most definitely use Channing's service in the future! It was nice to not worry about our pup while on vacation. She was free to roam around her house, outside in the fenced-in yard, and sleep on the couch. We also received a bag of doggie treats for our pup.
Channing was FANTASTIC and made my vacation even more relaxing by taking such great care of my sweet Lola! Channing was flexible with drop-off and pick-up times, sent me daily updates and pictures, and even sent Lola home with some homemade treats! I would absolutely recommend Channing to anyone looking for a "home away from home" experience for your dog.
We feel so lucky to have found such a happy and safe spot for Harvey when we go out of town. Harvey has stayed with Channing and (her husband) Joe several times and has had a great experience each time. It has gotten to where Harvey knows the route to Channing and Joe’s house and, once there, he sprints inside to go find them and their dog Ellie. We really couldn’t ask for a more caring, patient and responsive sitter!
Koda had a great stay!
I originally thought finding Channings services was too good to be true. The price along with what she was willing to do for our dog was incredible. Channing has all of the credentials and made this process quick and easy. Because of this, we were able to relax and enjoy our vacation. She is extremely nice and communicated clearly about what was going on with our dog. I will absolutely use Channing again and WILL recommend any of my family or friends to use her services. Thank you again for everything Channing!
So glad I found Channing through Dogvacay... & I've been through just about every boarding option in the area! She gave my elderly dog quiet time away from the rambunctious puppy & her dog Ellie kept Ditto busy & playing. Her husband even slept on the sofa with Skeeter during a bad thunderstorm!
It was a great opportunity for them to have a home environment, personalized to their individual needs, but at a reasonable price. They even went home with a bag of home made dog cookies & the recipe!
I was able to enjoy pictures & updates while missing them on my trip - thanks Channing!
First time leaving pup with someone for overnight weekend. After meeting Channing, we both felt at ease. She's a natural with dogs and our dog was immediately comfortable with her.
She sent us plenty of pictures and videos (asked permission first), woke up in the wee hours because our little man had to go badly and even got creative as he hadn't been eating his new food so she would throw it kibble by kibble until he ate. We hate that she had to do this but clearly she's dedicated. Her dog Ellie is also great with dogs. Clean home and backyard. We will use her next time we vacation in FL! Thank you, Channing (& husband). :)
Channing was everything we could have asked for in a dog-sitter and more! She's so sweet and cared for Fiona like her own. Her daily updates made us feel at ease. On top of how perfect she was, she baked fresh dog treats and sent us home with some. I think Fiona is looking forward to staying with Channing & Ellie again in the future.
This was the most stress free time away from my dog I have ever had. Channing is incredibly loving and caring and made me feel so safe. Her home set up is a dream for dogs that like to sun on the deck or play in the yard. Not only did Channing communicate with me twice daily with photos or videos, but she baked home-made treats for my dog. All I can say about this experience is THAT IT DOESN'T GET BETTER THAN CHANNING!
Channing was a fantastic host and really caring sitter for our 6-month old puppy Harvey. Harvey can be a handful but Channing, her husband, and their dog Ellie handled him perfectly (and were so patient!). Channing sent us daily videos and pictures of Harvey along updates about his progress/antics. Harvey was so happy and healthy when we returned. Channing even sent him home with homemade puppy treats….he loved them. She really has a magic touch with puppies. We will definitely be return customers!
Channing was great! She provided updates with pictures throughout the entire stay. She also asked great questions ahead of time so she could be prepared for my pet specifically. We will definitely be using her again in the future!
