About Danielle

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Bring your small to medium-sized dog (less than 25 pounds) to a loving home!

I provide a quiet place to rest and play with plenty of loving attention. I offer two to four daily walks, plenty of belly rubs, and tasty snacks.

As a fellow puppy parent, I strive to stick to the walking and feeding schedule to which your pup is accustomed. Additionally, good social habits and loose leash walking techniques are reinforced and rewarded throughout your pup's stay.

Located next to wide open spaces and green, rolling walking and bike trails, perfect for frolicking playtime and leisurely strolls, you can rest easy knowing that your furry family member is enjoying a vacation of his very own.

To ensure a smooth transition to a new environment, please schedule a meet and greet before booking. Furry guests should be potty trained or in training (please, no potty pads) and spay/neutered (exceptions for puppies, of course!)

Only two pups are accepted at any given time (with some flexibility), so spots fill up quickly. Reserve your spot today!

Please note:
Monday-Friday drop-off and pick-up times are 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Since bookings are for a 24-hour period, please be sure to make your reservation accordingly.

Lily loves Danielle's house. She always has other dogs there that Lily loves to play with. When we arrived at Danielle's house one time, the front door was open and Lily jumped right out of the car and ran inside. She was so excited to see who was at Danielle's house! She always has a great time with Danielle!

Danielle was wonderful--we'll book again! She accommodated our drop off/pick up times, and sent us pictures and updates every day--so we knew our "baby" was well taken care of!
Bernie did fine with his first dogvacay. Danielle sent a text and picture each day to let us know he was doing well. Appreciate her attention and care.
It was easy arranging drop-off and pick-up times. Lizzy seemed very happy when I picked her up.
As always, Lily loved her time with Danielle. When she got out of the car when we arrived, she ran right into Danielle's house looking for her friends. Thank you, Danielle, for taking such good care of my puppy.
Danielle is sweet, quick to communicate, and very accommodating. She had our elderly dog for a long holiday weekend and I'd say it was a good experience for us!
Danielle is great! We left our dog Wizard for the first time & he loved staying with Danielle. She made us feel comfortable leaving him for week and that he would be well cared for. She sent pictures and updates of wizard daily. We will use Danielle's services again. Thank you.
Peanut had a great time with Danielle!
Peanut had a great time with Danielle.
My little Kolbi had another fabulous time at Danielle's. Danielle is one of the most caring and compassionate dog sitters that I know. I am confident each time I take Kolbi to Danielle's that he will be well cared for and in the best home environment. Kolbi actually has his own vacay when we go on vacation while staying at Danielle's. She sends us lots of pics so we can see his happy, smiling face. He enjoys his daily walks and his time with Danielle's dog, Marley. Thanks Danielle for letting us go away with peace of mind knowing that Kolbi is in a warm, safe, and loving environment.
Danielle has hosted Jackson twice already and Jackson is ALWAYS happy when he comes home. Danielle posts vids/photos daily of him to ensure he is having fun :) Danielle has also hosted Jackson at very last minute notice from me (which is my fault lol) but she's VERY accommodating. Danielle is also very quick with responses and never leaves you hanging.
Once again a WONDERFUL experience with Danielle. My Pooh LOVES it there. She sends pics and updates on a consistent basis. I always feel my Pooh is in good hands!!!
When we first met Danielle with our American Eskimo dog, we knew instantly that we had found the right person to care for him while we were away. In addition to being warm, welcoming, and personable, Danielle was also prompt with replies and thorough in answering all of our questions.

We found DogVacay through a friend's recommendation and easily located Danielle. The sign up process was incredibly easy and Danielle responded quickly to our inquiry and set up a time to meet with us. She is clearly a lover of dogs and we were so happy that our pup would have a couple of playmates. Our dog instantly enjoyed being around her.

Danielle did a great job keeping in touch throughout our dogs' stay with her and she sent the cutest pictures to us. We felt connected and at ease. We are already planning our next DogVacay with her in mind as our DogVacay care provider.

We highly recommend Danielle!
Danielle took very good care of Enzo and sent lots of pictures and updates to us :) Would book again for sure!
Maxwell had a great time with Marley and Danielle as usual :)
Danielle, thank you for taking care of Baxter during our vacation. He obviously had a great stay! We appreciate all your good care and the daily pictures and updates. We look forward to using you again for Baxter's next vacation!
Great as always
Danielle watched out little Shi Zu, Kolbi, last summer and the care that Danielle provided was wonderful. We were a little bit nervous about leaving him with someone for so long, but Danielle was fabulous, keeping us informed every step of the way via texts and lots of pictures. He loved her daily walks and was very happy and healthy when we went to pick him up. So wonderful to have peace of mind when you go away!
Cosmo always has a great time with Danielle! She is a great dogsitter and I love how she sends pics every day Cosmo is at her place. I will definitely book with her again.
Malaika enjoyed her stay with Danielle. She had social time with other dogs, some walks for fresh air, and some lap time, too.
Danielle came thru for us again on pretty short notice. Her hours are flexible and she is super accommodating. She is really patient with our dog who doesn't eat well when he is not home. She mixed his food a special way so he would eat it while in her care. She is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure your pet is cared for. Danielle is our sitter for life!!
Danielle is a dream come true. This is a repeat visit for us and I wouldn't think of using anyone else. She is super reliable, flexible and attentive. My dog loves her and she takes good care of him. He's always happy to see her!! Thanks Danielle!!
Danielle was great with Jackson, videos and pics sent daily while I was on vacation. Danielle responds very quickly to your requests etc which is always a great calming feeling. I will definitely want Danielle to dog sit again.
I love all the updates Danielle sends when my dog Cosmo stays with her! He is always well taken care of and I will be booking with Danielle whenever I have to travel in the future.
4 paws up! Maxwell really enjoys his time with Danielle and Marley. When we pulled up, he was ready to jump out of the car! He had a great time as always.
Butters always has a great time with Danielle. We appreciate her flexibility, and the constant feedback including pictures that she sends us. Thanks for being incredible!
Danielle was so kind and welcoming to my dog Halo. I felt so comfortable leaving Halo with her. The pictures and video she sent me during my vacation showed me that Halo was happy too. I look forward to leaving Halo with her next time I go away!
Danielle was so great! Bear had a great time playing with Marley and I loved the daily photo updates! I was able to really enjoy my vacation knowing that Bear was happy and enjoying his vacay. Thank you so much Danielle!
Danielle was wonderful! Peanut had a blast! We got daily updates and pictures of Peanut. Danielle's pup, Marley, is so sweet and good about having other doggies around. I definitely recommend a stay with Danielle.
Danielle was excellent!!! My friend recommended me to this website because he said Petsmart did not take care of dogs properly during doggy daycare and over night stay. I was extremely pleased with Danielle's service. She was prompt in answering my emails (probably under 10 mins she would respond).

She was able to squeeze me in last minute for both of my dogs which I greatly appreciated. What was great too was she only lived 10 mins away from me. She sent me pictures of walking the dogs and kept in touch with their status. She was able to accommodate to the time I needed without over charging me. It was much cheaper than what I would've paid taking the dogs to Petsmart.

She was awesome! Very nice person. Highly recommend her. I will definitely use her services in the future.
Danielle was fantastic,as always!! Mishmish loves his vacay's with Danielle, Marley and their other guests.
My dog Cosmo seemed to love his stay with Danielle! It's great that she will post pictures every day so you can see how your dog is doing. Definitely gave me peace of mind.
Great time, 4 paws up
Always wonderful care and Alexis has a great time.
Malaika had a wonderful time with Danielle. She got lots of walks, play, and cuddles. I enjoyed seeing the photos of her adventures every day while I was away. I highly recommend Danielle as a dog sitter.
Always a pleasure for Alexis to spend time with Danielle and Marley
Danielle is an awesome sitter. My Pooh seemed to have a great time. Planning to use her again this holiday season.
Alexis loves Danielle!
Zsa Zsa's stay went great with Danielle! I felt very comfortable leaving her with Danielle and I have never left her with anyone I did not personally know. She kept me posted with pictures and notes throughout the weekend so I felt confident that she was being taken well care of. Zsa Zsa can be a handful and Danielle stated would watch her again. So I am very happy to have found such a warm and caring dog sitter! Thank you Danielle.
Alexis just loves to spend time with Danielle. The pictures everyday makes us feel really good about how Alexis is doing away from us.
Danielle is awesome!! She has such a sweet and calm personality. Ray, my 3 year old cocker spaniel, loved her immediately. She sent me pictures each day and he looked so happy and relaxed in her care. I could tell that he was very well taken care of when he came home. I will use Danielle again and again!!!
Danielle was very professional, flexible and perfect for our dog. Since it was Cooper's first stay with Vaycay, we were a bit anxious. Danielle answered all our questions, and helped us to feel comfortable. She helped Cooper with his adjustment and sent daily updates. It was obvious that Cooper thoroughly enjoyed his visit with Danielle. I would highly recommend Danielle as a host, and she will be our first choice for Cooper.

Danielle is flexible and takes wonderful care of Trixie. When I needed to drop Trixie off earlier than normal, Danielle made arrangements for me. Thank you so much! Trixie goes right to her when we arrive or leave. Danielle is very relaxed and so is Trixie when I get her back. She's right here in Columbia and while Danielle's townhouse doesn't have a back yard, she takes the dogs on walks and they play in the house all day.
Lily had a great time at Danielle's house. Danielle sent me photos every day. I'm so glad I found this service. Randi V.
Angel had a great time staying with Danielle! I was very happy that she excerised a lot and played with all her friends everyday. Danielle was very Easy going and accommodate with my drop off/pick up schedule. Thank you!!
Danielle was excellent with our dog Alexis. Alexis made friends and felt very much at home with Danielle.
I have used Dog Vacay multiple times but have only sent my baby Kiwi to Danielle and will keep using her services in the future. I feel complete assured sending Kiwi to her home. When she can't host, her sisters can handle the duties for her and they are just as great. I definitely recommend Danielle!!
I was happy to see all the photos Danielle sent during Zada's stay. Danielle was gracious even though Zada experienced some anxiety, which she typically does to some extent whenever we're away. Danielle told us she doesn't typically keep big dogs, so I was happy that Zada only had small dogs to make friends with during her stay. We will book again in the future. Thanks!
Peanut had a wonderful time with Danielle. He enjoyed playing with Danielle's dog Marley. Peanut is an anxious dog but Danielle and Marley made him feel at home. Danielle sent pictures daily and I could tell that Peanut was having a fun time with walks and playing.
Danielle was great! She kept me updated with messages and pics during Chase' stay and was very accommodating to my schedule. I would definitely use her again!
Danielle was great! She sent pictures and Bella was always looking happy!!
Once again, Mishmish had an amazing time with Danielle. He loves playing with Marley and we know he is well cared for. A great experience for all!
It was a comforting experience for the dog and the owners. Our first experience and we will continue using Danielle. The pictures of the dogs in the house and on their walk was a nice touch.
This is my first time using DogVacay and I absolutely will use this site again, especially Danielle. I brought my dog to a meet n greet and could already tell that Danielle is a wonderful host. She sent me daily updates, along with pictures of my dog. Kiwi seemed to be very happy and has made quite a few friends. Danielle emailed me about all the stuff that I needed to bring, asked lots of good questions regarding taking care of Kiwi. I totally felt assured sending Kiwi to Danielle. I would definitely recommend sending your furry baby(ies) to Danielle
Danielle was awesome!! My pup stayed there only during the day, she got so many playtimes and walks. I was very happy that my pup received so much attention and love at Danielle's. Thank you!!
My dogs, Wilbur and Dora, stayed with Danielle from April 1 through the 6th. She sent daily updates and the dogs seemed happy and well-exercised when we picked them up. She had good advice about getting them to walk better and seemed to really care about them. And she was very tolerant of our (mostly adorable) dogs' eccentricities.I would definitely use Danielle again! This was our first time using DogVacay and we were very happy with the process.
My dogs had so much fun. I could see everything they did with lots of pictures. They even got their picture taken with the Easter Bunny. They are very happy and I have peace of mind.
Danielle continues to give great service and really eases my mind when I have to travel. The dogs love her laid back, friendly personality too.
Danielle sends pics of my dog's stay, and Sophia seems to enjoy herself whenever she's in Danielle's care.
Danielle gave me daily updates and pictures showing Trixie had moved in and looked pretty comfortable at Danielle's. I got her back fully relaxed. Thanks Danielle, for taking wonderful care of Trixie.
Danielle was great to work with. She took great care of my two little guys and sent me pictures every day. I didn't have to worry and it was nice to see what they were up to.
Danielle was amazing with Mishmish! She sent lots of pictures during his vacation and sent updates every day. Danielle even worked with him on his "leash cv" and offered us suggestions how how to stop him from pulling on the leash. Mishmish can't wait to stay with Danielle again!
Danielle was very quick to respond to my questions and patient with my concerns. Rusty enjoyed his stay very much.
Danielle took care of my dog for five nights and she did it in professional manner. Very pleased with her service.
Taz stayed with Danielle for 5 nights. I had no worries when I dropped him off, he seemed really comfortable with her. Danielle was great! She sent me updates twice a day, including pictures. I would definitely use Danielle again.
My 2 dogs stayed at Danielle's for a total of 6 days during a renovation while I was at work. This was the first time I used DogVacy by the way. I had a initial meet-and-greet before booking. They seemed happy to go each day (not anxious to be left), were exercised during the day (much better than staying at home), I received pics of their daily activities - this was a great choice. I chose a home day care as I didn't want my babies in a kennel and I made the correct choice.
Danielle was AWESOME! Lucky looked like she was having a blast in the daily pictures sent. This was our first experience with DogVacay and we will were beyond impressed. I am looking forward to more traveling now knowing that I have a trusting, caring provider that Lucky can hang out with. It takes a big load off my mind knowing that she is well taken care of! Cheers, Danielle! Thanks a million for a great week!
Danielle was a great fit for my dog. One thing I really appreciated was she asked the question "Is there anything you would like me to work with your dog, behaviors, commands, obedience?" I appreciated that attention. I would absolutely recommend Danielle.
