About Dove

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Very home with lots of love. We do work Monday thru Friday and if thats good for you, we're here for you. If not, we are available most weekends and pretty much EVERY 3 day weekend.
I have taken care of dogs for over 30 years. At one time, we raised and breed Labradors and German Shepherds for law enforcement.
Unlike many I do NOT overbook. I give your pet the attention they deserve! Unless its a holiday, I take one family at a time. We go for walks usually at least once a day, sometimes more.

There is 2 of us - we both adore dogs!
At this time, we do not have a yard, but the dog park is right across the street. We are very loving and I am also allowed to take dogs to work with me.

Backyard was full of dog poop before we arrived which, unfortunately, my dogs will eat given the opportunit .(which I let her know when I dropped them off). My 15 year oshepherd mix ld was traumatized and got sick (probably from eating dog poo and didn't return to his normal self for three days after we got home. Got an email from her while we were gone that he hadn't eaten for THREE DAYS. Their leashes were exactly how we left them so we don't believe they ever went for walks as was part of why we went with DogVacay. The year old pit bull was sun burned. Got an email as soon as we arrived at airport asking us to pick them up now instead of next day as originally planned and yet it took a good 8 minutes for them to answer the door. I got the impression that my sweet well behaved house dogs spent the entire time locked outside in the backyard.Took me a good 3+ months to calm down enough from this horrible experience to write this review. , 10 p )
We were so grateful when we found Dove at the last minute to watch our dog Ozzy over the weekend. We had never tried any sort of doggy daycare before and weren't sure how it would go. Dove was great and let us come by a day early so our dog could meet the other dogs she was watching. We recommend her!
Dove was a great host and I could tell Orville had a great time. She was very communicative and I appreciated that.
Wonderful experience! This was our first time using DogVacay and/or any pet sitter, and Dove and her family took wonderful care of our Mastiff. I can't recommend Dove enough, will use again in the future.
Dove was fantastic! She was super flexible with time. Porkchop was pooped when I took him home which is never easy with an Aussie! Thanks for taking such good care of my pup Dove! :)
Dove was great....Saki was well taken care of. Dove was very flexible with time of drop off and pick up. Overall a great experience for us (with no worries).
Dove was a wonderful hostess for Orville. She was easy to get ahold of and kept me updated on any changes. I could tell when I picked Orville up that he had a great time.
Dove and her family were outstanding with Lexie - I'm very glad she was available to host Lexie in her home. I really appreciated the photos that were sent, as they helped my mom not miss Lexie as much while we were gone.
Dove was excellent! Our dog was nervous and curious and two accidents walking in the door! Dove was patient and understanding. She sent us pictures and updates and loved our dog! Thanks Dove!
Dove was a great sitter! She was very friendly and was willing to pick up Korra at such a short notice. She sent pictures of her during our time away and even gave me a dog bowl of her own! Korra seemed like she had a great time so I would completely agree with her!
Dove went out of her way to make Loki's stay a great experience! She was very attentive to his needs and accommodating to our schedule, even when we were delayed by traffic, and sent photos during his visit to reassure us that everything was going fine. It was his first stay with Dove, but probably will not be his last.
Great! Dove did a fantastic job with our quirky dogs. Odie, the old guy, at drop off was a bit nervous and promptly peed on the living room rug, Dove did not bat an eye and accident was promptly cleaned up and then she picked him up to cuddle. When I picked them up they were ready to go home and settled right in, no nervous energy or quirky behaviors (as noted after other past sitting situations). Dove is awesome, already planning more trips in the fall and want to try and set up Dove for those. Good situation and environment.
I was so lucky to find Dove at the very last minute! She made Bailey and Bowser part of her family while they were there and my mind was at ease. Am most definitely boarding with her again!
