About Daphne

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been around pets my whole life. I treat my dog like one of my kids. Who are all grown up now. Youngest is 16 years old. There is always someone home. If your pet loves people, they would love being at my house. My girls are home from college so the house is never empty. If the doggie wants to lay on the coach and watch a movie at bedtime with the family, they can, or lay out on the deck and relax they can do that. Or if your dog gets hot and needs to lay on the ac vents, he/she can do that too. We can take walks around the neighborhood and see what the other people are doing. Then go back to Daphne's house and watch out the big bay window with Abby the worlds smallest English bulldog. Abby loves everyone and everything. She has too ferrets for brothers downstairs that we rescued. We don't have any cats. At bedtime, you can sleep with Daphne on the bed or on the sofa with Abby. She just likes it there. If you need longer walks we will take you on a trail, just down the road. We live in the Parker farm community, so it's a fenced in community. I'm great with dogs. I have a love of all 4 legged animals. If your pet needs a quite room, I can take them to my bedroom where it's quite, if they like to be where everyone's at, they can hang in the living room where everyone is sitting. Please tell me what your pets need so I'll know if I'm right for them. I don't want them to be unhappy or sad. Downstairs I have a small fenced in yard. I'll put alittle pool on the deck for the dogs to play in. If your dog likes to relax this is a good house. If he's a big or little lazy dog that likes to run and play and then climb up on a lap and rest, then they have come to the right place. I also have pee pads set up for little dogs who are pad trained. For little dogs I do have ramps to help get on sofa and bed. Since I have stairs, it's not a problem to carry little dogs up and down. We stay on the middle level mostly. Parker farm is completely surrounded by a fence. There are lots of common areas to walk your pet.

Daphne took wonderful care of my Kano and treated him like a king. She is flexible and accommodating. She kept me in the loop by sending pictures and text messages. While away I knew that he was in good care with Daphne. Thanks again Daphne you are truly a jewel.
My dog loved staying with Daphne and her family over the holidays. She took great care of him and sent me frequent pictures and videos. I would definitely recommend Daphne!
If I could give more than five stars for Daphne I would. Daphne and her family watched my border collie/Australian Shepard, Carmen for a week. Daphne texted videos and photos of Carmen on a daily basis. She took great care of Carmen and I will definitely reach out to Daphne again in the future. She is everything you want in a dog sitter.
Daphne was great; very attentive to our dog and extremely friendly and easy to deal with.
Once again Daphne did a terrific job taking care of our dog Betty and even bought her a toy for Christmas! Almost daily we received photos and videos of our dog who looked like she was having a great time. Thank you Daphne! We'll be back!
Daphne and her family were amazing! Our bulldogs stress out a little when we leave them to go out of town. I wanted to find someplace where it would feel more like home and relaxed and Daphne's house is just that! Someone was always home and they never left our pups alone. She administered meds properly after showing her quickly and she kept in contact with me consistently. She has a loving heart and truly does care for your pets well being. I will be using her as my regular Dog Vacay host!
Daphne is wonderful! Theo absolutely loves visiting her, Abby and their family. She is reliable and flexible which is very important for us!
Great stay with Daphne and her family. They loved having Oscar and sent pics of his little "resort" weekend. The fact Daphne has a bulldog really helped with Oscar's care too because she was familiar the breathing and heat exhaustion issues. I always worry about that and the fact that Oscar is almost 8, but Daphne did a great job making sure he was comfortable and taken care of. Definitely will visit again.
Daphne was an excellent host to our dog. Our dog seemed so happy to be with Daphne's family and dog. Daphne sent us pictures everyday and was accommodating of our schedule when we returned from our trip.
Daphne is awesome! I highly recommend Daphne. She was flexible with us Thank you for taking good care of Tio See you
Daphne and her family are wonderful! Theo very much enjoyed his stay and was so exhausted when we got him home. It is great to have someone so trusty worthy and reliable.
My puppy, Bruno, had an amazing time while staying with Daphne. She sent me updates on how he was doing and pictures as well. When I picked him up, he was having so much fun, he barley wanted to leave. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter. She was a wonderful choice!
Daphne and her family were fantastic! They watched my 2 pups for a week and I couldn't be happier. I got updates and pics every night and most of them were my pups cuddling with her family on the couch or sleeping in her bed. Will use Daphne's service again for sure!
Daphne and her family did an amazing job taking care of our dog Betty. This was our fist time booking with DogVacay and both my husband and I were a little nervous, especially since we were going to be gone for two weeks. From the first several minutes of meeting Daphne however we both could tell she is a huge animal lover and made us feel at ease. Our dog felt at home at Daphne's right away and got treated like a princess during her stay. Almost daily Daphne would text us photos and videos of our dog always looking happy and content, and was always very quick to respond back if we had any questions or comments. Daphne was even very flexible when we told her we were thinking of picking Betty several days after the set pick up date, due to trip delays. When I picked Betty I could tell the entire family loved her as their own and she was very happy with all the love and attention she received. Daphne is definitely the kind and responsible dog sitter every pet parent hopes to find. We are so happy to have met her, HIGHLY recommend her, and will be booking with her again in the future!
We boarded our dog Winston with Daphne and her family for 3 weeks when we went overseas. I cannot be happier with how he was taken care of! Daphne and her family is amazing and wonderful. They took in W as their own and he was so loved and cared for by them. He was their family member and I could tell how happy he was at "home away from home". Daphne sent us videos, texts and photos of Winston so we could follow him from our vacation spot. She goes the extra mile for your pet, and nothing is ever a problem, she is delightful and so caring. The whole family love love love dogs and I wholeheartedly recomend Daphne for taking care of your darling when you are away! We now have our go to family for our W when we go away. 5 stars out of 5!
Excellent work, very responsive and very caring. If you're anywhere in the 20906 zip code, see if she's available!
