About Betsy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband, Russ and I were raised with German Shepherds. Our teen boys aged 18 and 19 were as well. We love animals. Besides our dog we have two goats, five chickens, two parakeets and a gold fish.

Our house is located on Robbins Pond, so if your dog likes to swim, and we have your permission, we will let him or her romp in the water.

Our back yard is completely fenced with gates separating different sections. We have a 20' x 40' kennel for off leash exercising, and a large front yard for walking and running on leash. Dogs are not allowed in the pool area unsupervised. In the winter the pool is covered with a safety cover so that there can be no accidents.

We live on a quiet dead end street with very little traffic and wonderful neighbors.

We have experience administering insulin, IV fluids, oral medications, and medicines by injection as well as bandage changes.

If you love your dog(s) as much as we love ours we can relate to the anxiety you will experience when leaving your dog for any length of time. We promise to love and care for your dog(s) as if they were our own. We will reassure you with pictures and texts that your beloved pet is well and happy while you are away. Don't worry, be happy. Enjoy your vacation.

Please plan to drop off and pick up between 8 AM and 8 PM.

This was the first time leaving our 3 yr old dog to go on vacation. Our dog has never been crated, exposed to kennels or even attended a doggie day care in the past. It's for that reason we decided on having him stay in a private home and be exposed to just a few dogs. Betsy's place was the perfect fit for us. She periodically sent us pics and updates on his adjustment in getting settled in. We had a great experience and Teddy loved being there. We would definitely use here again.
This was my first time using Dogvacay, but thanks to Betsy I will definitely be using it if I need to board my dog again. She was very friendly and obviously had a lot of love for her dogs. She sent my regular updates and pictures while I was away, which I loved. Will be using Betsy next time I go away!
Homer enjoyed his visit a lot. Betsy has an excellent, calm manner and Austin is a very gracious gentleman. Homer felt very comfortable with them and ran eagerly to the house when we arrived for his second visit. Thanks, Betsy!
I would recommend Betsy and her family 100%. I cannot say enough good things about the care my boys received. She was a life saver while I was busy moving out of state. Besides the love and attention my boys received, she also helped when one of them had surgery and needed his dressing changed. I received constant updates on how they were doing. The best recommendation is that the boys were happy when they returned for another stay!
Betsy was wonderful. She frequently kept me updated on my pup's behavior and interactions. I felt very comfortable leaving Bravo in her care. I really liked how Betsy responded quickly to my inquiries. Bravo was very tired after arriving back from his stay with Betsy. He clearly enjoyed his time with the other dogs and play a lot! I wish Betsy lived closer so I could use her services regularly.
Theo had another great extended visit at Betsy's. He always comes home happy, healthy and exhausted!
Betsy was great, I'll definitely bring my little man back there again
Betsy is great! Gordon gets excited to visit and play with the other pups. Makes my day easier knowing I'm leaving him in good hands.
We were extremely pleased with the love and care our dog, Dakota, received when she was with Betsy. Dakota is shy and takes time to warm up to new people and Betsy was attentive to Dakota's needs and was able to provide for her in a loving manner. Betsy sent us daily updates on how Dakota's day went and this was reassuring to my husband and myself. This was the first time we used this site and we were confident that Dakota was well cared for while we were away. We will definitely use Betsy again and highly recommend her to others!!
Great experience. Betsy was very flexible with our drop off and is a very nice lady. Highly recommend her for anyone.
My dog had a good time. I love the pics that were texted to me. I would definitely use her again!
Betsy was wonderful! Very friendly and helpful. We needed help with a last minute getaway and Betsy was very accommodating. Bo seemed like she had a lot of fun! Overall it was a very good experience. Thanks Betsy!
Betsy was great. Her family is 100% dedicated to the care and happiness of the dogs that stay with them. Betsy even handled one of my dog's special medication needs. She's experienced and trustworthy. It was our first time using DogVacay, and we're glad we found Betsy. xo.
Betsy was great with both of our dogs! Both pets have different personalities and she knew just how to get them to both be comfortable and have a great time!
Nico's stay with Betsy was wonderful. This is our fourth time that he has stayed for a long weekend and he just loves it. Betsy and her family truly love dogs and it shows in the joy and care that they each give to the dogs that stay with them. Their dog Austin is very socialized and seems to get along quite well with any dog that comes into his house. Nico loves all of the playtime he gets with Austin, the other dogs, and Betsy's family. I would highly recommend Betsy to anyone looking for a loving vacation home for their pups.
Betsy and her family were just amazing with Bailey. Betsy updated me regularly on how Bailey was doing, which put my mind at ease. She also came through for me in a huge way after someone backed out last minute from being able to watch my girl. It is very clear from speaking with her and seeing her with the dogs that both Betsy and her family are dog lovers. If your dog is good with other dogs, this is a fantastic home to leave him or her in while you are away.
I was hesitant to board my dog Lila for an entire week - she's getting older and traditional kennels/boarding places have been hit-or-miss, and never as comfortable as home. Once I discovered Betsy and her Club Canine Pet Resort, I wish I had found her sooner. Not only did my dog have the luxury of a fenced-in yard and indoor/outdoor access all day long, she also got to enjoy one of the most beautiful views in Bridgewater.

Betsy texted me photos every day, along with a short message about how Lila was doing. While my dog was excited to see me after a week, I think she'd be just as excited to go back and stay at Club Canine again. Thanks a million, Betsy!
Betsy is the absolute best! She took tender, loving care of our senior doggie Peanut. We received pictures and text messages everyday updating us on Peanut and how she was doing. Peanut has a heart condition and I could not have asked for anyone better to care for her! I highly recommend Betsy and would happily book with her again.
We had never boarded our 2-year-old rescue before, and have ALWAYS stressed and worried about what to do when we're away. Betsy and her family made my husband and I feel more comfortable than I ever imagined we was a breath of fresh air to know our baby was in THE most loving, safe hands. She lives in a beautiful home on a stunning, spacious property. My pup played constantly and made lots of friends. She was provided all the comfort & love she could've had! Betsy texted us every day, to ensure us that our pup was doing awesome!!! When we picked her up & brought her home, she fell fast asleep.....tuckered out, from having such a blast at Betsy's. I can't recommend her enough! I know who WE will be going to see, the next time we need to travel. Thank you Betsy!!!
Betsy was amazingly helpful and you can tell she loves the animals she watches. She was very prompt to let us know how are pup was doing. Will definitely go back.
I could tell that our dogs loved staying with Betsy, they were very happy when we picked them up. She gave daily updates of how our dogs were doing and even let our Lab who loves the water swim in their pool! I definitely plan on using Betsy again!
This was our first time leaving our dog anywhere. Betsy made it very easy on all of us. Despite being a nervous dog mom, I was very confident that Angus would have a good time and be well cared for. I received updates during his stay and picked up a relaxed, happy, and tired dog. Would highly recommend Betsy and Angus will be vacationing with Betsy again.
Beaty was very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend.
Betsy and her family were great! I felt very comfortable leaving Maggie in such a compassionate pet friendly environment.
I would definitely send my boy to Betsy and her family again. She and her family were able to do in one night what we have not been able to do in 4 years - exhaust him. I know he had a fabulous time and I felt completely comfortable leaving him with Betsy after spending a few minutes in her home. I know he was well cared for and he had a lot fun. I will be booking our next vacation with Betsy and her family.
We had a wonderful experience working with Betsy! We brought our 5 year old
Australian Shepherd for a week-long stay while we were on vacation. Before he stayed we met with Betsy in her home so we could see where he'd be staying which really made us more comfortable considering we'd never boarded him with anyone besides family in the past. She has a beautiful home right on the lake and a great, fenced-in yard to always keep the dogs safe. Betsy texted me pictures and updates all week while we were away. We will definitely be going back and would recommend her services to anyone.
Besty and her family were great. We have such a big dog with some anxiety issues and we were going to be gone for 8 days...yikes! But she was very attentive to his needs and we were excited to receive updates and photos from Besty.... many thanks! I would definitely recommend Betsy.
Betsy was prepared for our dog's arrival and very considerate of his needs. From the time she greeted us at her front door, it was clear that she understands dogs. This was important to our dog's adjustment to her home. Her demeanor was calm, warm and friendly and exactly what our dog needed. She sent me texts and pictures to assure me that our dog was doing well. Her home is conducive to having dogs stay indoors and she also has a lovely deck and a fully fenced yard.
Betsy was great! We got lucky we found her the day before leaving. Thanks for the quick response!!!
Caesar had a great stay with Betsy! She sent lots of great pictures and it was clear he was having a blast! I am sure he will be excited to go back again soon!
Great Experience, Our dog Trix had a blast! Thank you!
I was extremely happy with the care that Betsy and her family provided for Myla while I was away. They have lots of experience with dogs, and I was comfortable that Myla would be safe with them. Betsy texted me daily updates and sent me photos of Myla, relaxing and having fun with the other dogs at her place. I hope Betsy will be able to look after Myla in the future!
Great Stay! Gauge was very Happy went being picked up. The other dogs present all were very friendly. Our Host Betsy was very accomidatng Thank you!
Great dog people. Bailey and Angelina had a wonderful time with Betsy and her family!
Great dog people. Friendly and competent. Lovely location for you dog's vacay!
Picked up Rider this morning, and he is one pooped pup! Betsy sent pics and videos while we were away. Looks like Rider had a great time. This was our first time using Betsy, and I don't regret it! Her family and place is all about the dogs! Betsy is very warm and caring and will make sure your pooch has plenty of attention. There are many other reviews that pretty much say the same thing that I have already said. You can feel very comfortable bringing your four-legged child here. I will recommend to anyone I know that needs extended doggie care, and I will definitely be coming back with Rider!
Betsy was so awesome that our doggie Rondo gave them a loving glance instead of licking or showing an "I miss you" lick towards me. I was so jealous, but this shows how lovingly he was treated. He pretended to be an 8 pound pack leader towards his larger and sweet new friends. I would of loved to be a fly on the wall. Absolutely recommend 100 Stars!!! Thank you betsy and family for being genuinely caring....
If I could rate Betsy higher I would, 10 stars in my book! Her and her family are wonderful. Our dog Melody had such a great time there, she adjusted immediately and I could see just how much fun she was having with the daily updates that Betsy sent.

I'm looking to book more trips away just to get Melody back to Betsy's house for her own Vacay.
My puppy, Myron, stayed with Betsy for two weeks. She took great care of him. It was reassuring to know he was in good hands. Betsy sent texts and pictures everyday. She also had a special birthday "cake" for Myron since we were going to miss it. I can't thank Betsy enough for caring for Myron. He came home happy and tired and loved.
We loved having Betsy watch our dog Mars! She was so kind and welcoming on our first visit - even when my dog left a little "present" on her rug!! During his stay with Betsy, we received texts/pictures to let us know everything was going well. Our dog enjoyed interacting with Betsy's dog and some other canine visitors there for the weekend. We will definitely be using Betsy for future visits and have recommended her to other dog owners as well! Thank you Betsy (and your family) for being such wonderful sitters!
We recently had Betsy watch our dog Max and he had a great time at her home playing with all his new friends that were there! Betsy was wonderful sending me updates regularly which I appreciated so much! Will not hesitate to use Betsy again if she'll have Max again! What a great property you have for the dogs to freely run around so unique! Thank you so much Betsy❤️
Brady has a great time at Betsys' Very convenient
Betsy and Russ were great. Very accommodating. They really took good care of little Charlie. We had no concerns leaving our puppy with their family. We will continue to use them in the future.
Betsy and her family are amazing.. Look no further for your doggie needs.. Last summer we were planning our trip to California to bring our baby to college in San Diego. If that wasn't stressful enough..We have Lexi, a 3 yr old Weimaraner that had never been left alone overnight without a family member. And we were going to be gone for two weeks.. Too much to ask of family (especially if you know weims) The thought of her being crated in a kennel 6pm to 6am broke my heart but I didn't think I had any other options. A lot of "dog people " told me to be wary of cage less overnight boarding.." Dogs can fight, get territorial etc.. ". Thankfully, my brother knew Betsy and her wonderful boys from 4H club.. We brought Lexi to her house for a visit and immediately, I breathed a huge sigh of relief.. I knew Lexi would be happy and safe and and we wouldn't have to worry about her as we settled our daughter in on the west coast... Priceless!!

Betsy kept us updated on the fun Lexi was having with her beautiful German Shepherd Austin , and of course her sweet boys. During Lexis long stay, Betsy had other dogs come and go , big ones , small ones , and they were all as safe and happy as Lexi (and Betsy let me know ahead of time that other dogs would be there ).

If you need to be apart from your dog .., this is as close to home as they can be ❤️
We love leaving Lilly with Betsy and her family while we are out of town. They are so welcoming, treat her as their own, and she gets socialized with other dogs as well. We are already booking our time with her for our next vacation.
Betsy and her family took wonderful care of our dog Lucy! She had a great stay and we got daily updates with pictures of all the fun she was having. We will definitely be using her again in the future.
Scraps seemed to have a nice time with Betsy and her family. I think I'm spoiled from other hosts, and would have appreciated more updates about how he was doing, but I'm sure that's my anxiety about leaving him. We'll definitely use Betsy again if she'll have us!!
Kizmet loved her stay with Betsy and her family. She came home tired and happy.
Betsy and her family were sweet. They took care of also.
Betsy and her family were wonderful to Kizmet. She had two fun-filled days with them and loved playing with Austin. We are traveling from Canada and it was a relief to have Kizmet properly cared for while we toured around Boston. She came home exhausted and ready to sleep.
Kali had a wonderful stay with Betsy and her family! Kali and their German Sheppard Austin were fast buddies!

Kali was given lots of love and attention from Betsy, her husband and two boys. I received updates and pictures of Kali which I loved getting!
Terrific communication. Hank came home tired and slept the rest of the day away. Betsy and her family love dogs.
