About Colette

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello!

Thank you for taking a look at our profile!

We are an active couple who love hikes and trips to the dog park. We live right around the corner from trails and the bay. We do not passively house pets. When you drop your dog off, they become a part of our family and we make sure they are played with, exercised, and loved. Because of our work schedules, your animals have a human companion 24/7!


I am very flexible with overnight sitting drop off and pick up times, but please keep in mind that the nightly rate is for a 24 hour period. Any additional time over the 24 hour period is charged at a daycare rate of $3.00/hour (per dog).

A little about Theo: Theo is a 2 year old lover boy. He shows absolutely no aggression towards any dogs or cats. Theo is non-territorial and non-reactive. We have carefully and diligently raised him to welcome any animal in our home. Theo is a fetching and tug-o-war champ, waiting to be challenged. While he is playful he also knows when to give a dog some space.


While we welcome dogs of all kinds, we do please ask that your dog is neutered or spayed and up to date on vaccinations. We also ask for your dog to have flea medicine.


I have taken care of animals my entire life and love every aspect of their care. Your babies will be treated like royalty in this house :) We can't wait to meet you!

My experience with Colette and her husband was great! I was really worried initially because I've never boarded my pets, but Colettes manner really put me at ease. We will definitely go back.
We loved Colette and Andre! They were so accommodating and took all four of our little ones so we wouldn't have to separate them. It's not often you find a sitter that will take 4 little dogs when they already have pets at home. We got lucky when we found them! Not only were they accommodating, but they made me feel at ease and completely comfortable. You can tell they genuinely love animals. They administered pills 3 times a day and eye drops for my girls. I will ask them to watch Yoda, Luna, Cali and Mila again, and again...as long as they'll have us! :) Thank you Colette and Andre for a great experience. My pups came home happy and with tails wagging! I think they miss Theo and the cats!

Collette was able to take our dog Peter on fairly short notice. She was welcoming and friendly. We were happy to leave Peter in a good home with a yard to play in while we were away.
We had a great experience with Colette and Andre! This was my dogs first time staying with "new" people in their home. They are responsible sitters, calm in their handling, and good listeners. I appreciated that my dog was exercised and had opportunities to experience and interact with other animals. I'm confident that they make good decisions caring for our pets. I will definitely return to Colette next time I need boarding. Thank you, both!

Colette and Andre were wonderful friends to our dog! Their dog Theo provided much needed camaraderie for Wylie as well. Their patience and hospitality were perfect for Wyl E Coyote!
My 7 month old GSD had a fantastic stay. So many positive things to say - from initial contact, meet up, reservation, and stay. Collette is very open and receptive to questions / concerns and really does anything possible to help make the experience as positive for all involved. Next time we go out of town and we can't bring the dog, I know where I will look first

Great!
Colette and Andrey are wonderful! Our lab had a great experience with them and were wondered if she would want to come back to our house! Colette and Andrey made sure Gialla got exercise and socialization with their own dog Theo. We received some wonderful text pictures of our lab during her stay. We will definitely be using them again for future stays!

We would definitely have our Daisy stay again!
Collette and Andrey were great with our dog Stella which was very reassuring for me and my husband.
Our girls had a wonderful stay with Colette, Andrew and Theo. It was a two night stay. Colette texted us pictures and when we went to pick up the girls, our pups were already following commands. We would definitely have our German shepherds stay there again.

Colette was great with Freddy! Colette was quick to respond to my request and easy to communicate with leading up to and during the weekend she was watching him. She sent me some cute pics of Freddy running around too :) I'd definitely contact Colette next time I'm going out of town. Thanks!

Colette was amazing. My dog loves staying with her and I would definitely use Colette again. Thank you so much!
Our dog Bodie stayed with Colette over the Thanksgiving holiday. Colette and her husband Andre were very warm and welcoming to me and Bodie. They were very patient with Bodie since it was his 1st stay at their home and we were very appreciative! We look forward to the next vacay for Bodie in the near future. It was a wonderful experience!!

Rocket and Buddy had a great time with Colette! I received photos of my dogs, as well as updates with what they were doing. I will definitely be back.
My dog was very happy when I picked him up today. He obviously had a good time with Colette. I'm looking forward to using her in the future as I believe she truly cares about animals and is a very good "dogsitter." I had no problems with the process or with his care.

This was the first time our family has used Dog Vacay. Colette and Andrey are awesome! Our little yorkie was in very high spirits when I picked him up.

It's obvious that our dog had an active and fun time while in their care.

We will definitely take our dog to Colette and Andrey again!

I am very pleased with Walter's stay with Colette. Walter, my dog, was also very pleased. I dropped him off as arranged and picked him up at the appointed time. I'm happy to have discovered Colette because I don't like leaving Walter in his kennel for more than a couple of hours at a time, yet I didn't want to leave him with just anyone. I wanted to know he would get quality care by animal loving people. Colette is a very pleasant woman, and I wouldn't hesitate to leave my pet with her.

Colette was very friendly and was able to accommodate a last minute reservation for Tofu. She has a nice fenced back yard where the pups can play. Theo was super friendly as well!
Collette and Andrey were amazing host parents for our labradoodle. She came home so happy and tired! They took her to the park, on walks, to the water and gave her the royal treatment :) So nice to be able to leave town and not have to worry if our pup would be okay. Thanks guys!

My experience with Colette was wonderful. This was my first time using Dogvacay, and I was a little bit nervous leaving my pup with someone that I didn't know for six days while my husband and I traveled to visit family on the East Coast. Colette was very understanding of my trepidation, and did all that she could to make me feel more comfortable, including inviting us over for a meet and greet before our trip. Her home and yard are large and well-suited for awesome doggie playtime, and her own dog was super playful and welcoming. I highly recommend Colette as a dog sitter!!!

I almost felt guilty picking Hex up after his weekend with Colette. Great hosts, house, garden, and pet companions. Colette was very accommodating of our schedule and attentive to our pet's care.
Colette was excellent in boarding our dog. My wife and I were leaving for our anniversary and she was vey accompanying with letting us drop him off the night before. She also kept him a extra since we would be getting back late. She is very knowledgeable and confident about dogs. We will be using her more often. She sent pictures to us while we were away. I highly recommend her.

I met Colette's husband Andrew first and he seemed very easygoing and zen with all the dogs which was really cool. They had a couple of big dogs at the time which Caleb is either OK with or not and this time he seemed to be more nervous than usual but Colette and Andrew were amazing at handling Caleb and dealing with all his little issues-him crying for most of the first day! So sorry! Thanks so much for looking after him and putting in all the effort! Would definitely recommend this home for your furry friend :D

Our yellow lab Sadie had a wonderful stay with Colette. She was a happy girl when we picked her up. Being loved, walked and being a part of the family for the weekend was a very good experience. I would recommend Colette in a heart beat. Thank you for taking such good care of Sadie!

Colette and Andrey were extremely accommodating and welcomed our Marty a day earlier than planned due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control. Colette was sure to provide plenty of updates and pictures each day we were away and took Marty in a few "field trips" to keep him active and busy. Colette also paid careful attention to Marty's special diet too. We can't thank her enough for taking good care of our sweet boy.

This was the first time I have used Dog Vacay services. Colette was incredibly kind and courteous to me and very sweet to my dog, Stella. She spent her day running and playing with Colette's friendly pets and couldn't have been happier! I was able to enjoy my trip knowing she was in good hands. I look forward to working with Colette again in the future! Thanks again!

Collette and her husband and their pets welcomed our dog with open arms, I didn't think he'd want to come home. No problems and so much peace of mind for this trip and future ones.
