About Dawn

23 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I work as an vet tech at a local animal hospital 11 - 12 hours, three shifts a week. Because of the longer hours, I am able to bring 2 dogs to work with me. I only bring one dog to work with me if they are between 50-100#. I can give meds and injections if needed. I walk once or twice a day with the dogs. I do have 2 cats, so your dog must be okay with cats.

I will be fostering a puppy for awhile. Because she is a tiny dog, dog guests must be ok with smaller dogs.

Special needs dogs welcomed! (Additional charges may apply.)

NOTE: I will only accept new puppies over 10 months of age. I will also accept dogs up to 100#.

I have had Dawn watch my pooch a few times now and he always is well taken care of. She even sends me pictures, which I love!
Dawn was great. My dog Pepper did great. Dawn sent me a picture of Pepper. I have a reservation in December and I was nervous about how Pepper would handle it and I was worried if something might happen to Pepper. I had some family and personal loss. I didn't want to lose or have something happen to Pepper. Something suddenly came up and I needed someone to watch Pepper for a couple of days. This would give me a chance to see how Pepper and I would handle being separated. Both of us did fine. I would recommend Dawn to anybody. Thank you Dawn!
Dawn is great to work with! My dogs love going there and she's easy to work with.
Dawn took such good care of our senior dog. He can be a bit high maintenance as he is older, so we appreciated her patience and understanding. Loved the pictures she sent and message updates. Knowing our dog was comfortable and in loving hands made our vacation that much more enjoyable. Thank you, Dawn!
Dawn was great with my Frenchie and Yorkie! She constantly sent pictures every day to let me know how my little guys were doing. Dawn has a nice backyard that is completely fenced in. I highly recommend Dawn!
Thanks Dawn for the last minute dog care! We appreciate you and miss you!
Dawn is great! First time leaving my dog with anyone and she made me feel very comfortable. Love the pictures and video she posted!
It was so nice to know our geriatric dog was in good hands while we were on vacation! We loved receiving the photo updates. We were very satisfied!
Dawn was great with Lola. Lola is an older dog and can get a little anxious and she seemed happy and comfortable with Dawn. I will definitely use her again.
Dawn was great with my very energetic 8 month old puppy. He was able to interact with other dogs during his stay, which helped with his socialization. We will definitely send him to her home again.
My beagle was very happy when I picked her up. It was so nice to only have to drive ten minutes to pick her up after our 2 hour car trip. I would certainly use Dawn's service again.
Dawn was great with our dog, Buddy! She communicated well, was flexible with drop off and pick up times, and sent us pictures of him while we were away on our trip. Buddy seemed enthusiastic about his doggy vacation and warmed up to her right away, as well as the other dog staying with her at the time. We had a great first experience using this site by finding Dawn to take care of our big fur baby. We would definitely recommend her to others.
Dawn did an excellent job caring for our three big dogs, ages 15-9-2. Regular walks and lots of play! Dawn was very accommodating around drop of and pickup. Thanks again, the boys had a fun time at your place!
My dog was very happy staying with Dawn! She did a great job taking care of him and spoiling him while we were out of town! We will definitely send him to Dawn again!
Very nice caring lady, Merlyn was wore out when he got home, sent photos which was fun to see!
Dawn was an excellent dog sitter. Maggie was exhausted when she got home, which tells us she had a good time. Definitely use her again. Bryan (I.G.H.)
We will definitely be back to Dawn's house. Ava was loved and enjoyed her stay. Dawn is great about sending pictures often. Thanks Dawn!
My dog Axel and I were comfortable with Dawn right from the start. She did a wonderful job and sent me lots of photos while I was away. I will be using her services again in the future! Very very pleased.
Another fabulous stay for our girls at their 'home away from home'! Dawn always makes our old gals feel comfortable & well cared for.
Wonderful experience as always!
Our two dogs had a great experience with Dawn. Our older dog was not at all stressed when we picked her up - which is usually the case. Dawn sent pictures daily with our dogs having a relaxing time.
We've been with Dawn five+ times and our dog is so happy and loves going to see her!
Dawn is great - I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Dawn!
Dawn was great with my dog Prince! She sent me photos everyday and sent messages as well. She is great with giving him his shots, walking him and getting him to play with other dogs! I will definitely be using her again.
Dawn was amazing to work with again - I know my pup is always in good hands!!
One of the main reasons I chose Dawn was because her dog is elderly like mine and I felt both dogs would be more comfortable if there was not a huge age difference. Dawn welcomed my dog into her home and made him feel at home. I think this was a very good pet care experience for my dog and I would use her services again.
Dawn did a great job with Maggie. I would definitely use Dawn's services again.
Charlie was well cared for and happy during his vacay with Dawn and Bo. Loved getting the daily pictures and updates. She was very flexible with our irregular travel plans (early drop off/late pick up) . Thanks Dawn!!
We love Dawn, and it's obvious our dogs do, too! They've stayed with her several times and it's so reassuring to see how comfortable they are with her. We truly appreciate Dawn's flexibility and the care she shows our dogs - even allowing our big 65 lb girl up on her bed for sleeping.
Dawn treats Trail like he part of her own family. I appreciate her very much!
Libby had a great time. She is a very sociable fur baby.
Dawn took great care of Max. She kept us updated with photos while we were gone. It was comforting knowing that Max was well taken care of.
This was Sampson's second stay with Dawn. We had to leave town on very short notice and Dawn made it work and was able to help us out.
Dawn took great care of Joey over the Christmas holiday. This was our first dogvacay experience and it was great! He was happy and healthy when I picked him up and she sent pictures of him hanging out with the other boarders. Thank you Dawn! Deb
Dawn was absolutely wonderful to work with - from the meet and greet down to the care of our special needs pup. I recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and caring host. Our dog Basil seemed to thoroughly enjoy his stay - I will for sure be using her again in the future.
Dawn was a wonderful host! She was able to add an extra night last minute for us, and even sent photos of Buddy having a wonderful time!
Dawn was great. She sent us several pictures while we were on vacation and it helped us feel good about leaving Sampson with her.
Dawn was great, I needed someone to watch my 4 month old puppy and without hesitation Dawn said yes. Millie had a wonderful time with Dawn, she grew in those 6 days. I would recommend Dawn for your family
I feel very comfortable leaving Libby with Dawn.
Great experience! First time I left my girls with anyone-we had to go out of town due to emergency family situation. We called Dawn last minute and she was able to take both. We would definitely leave them again with Dawn. Thank you Dawn!!!
Dawn was great. She actually sent me a couple of photos of dog when I was gone. For crazy animal lovers like me that was just an extra benefit.
This was the first time that we had ever left our pup for the weekend and she had a blast! It was great knowing that Rylee was in a house (rather than a kennel!) with Dawn's dog Bo as a playmate. They enjoyed many walks and Rylee came home one tired girl! I highly recommend Dawn - she was awesome!
Dawn was great!Our guys have never left us without howling and crying,but when Dawn said"cmon guys" they just went with her without any resistance.We'd definitely use her again if we return to the area.
Dawn went above and beyond what I ever expected caring for Bailey, a special needs 14 year old dog. I would highly recommend Dawn to anyone considering boarding their pet. She cares a lot about dogs and is very knowledgeable about their needs. It was also a real plus knowing she is a vet tech at a local animal hospital.
As before, Dawn is Pawsome!! I feel very comfortable leaving Trail with her and he had a really good time! Thank you!
Dawn was awesome. Great for the few days I needed to have my pup away from my home.
Our black lab, April is so happy at Dawn's home. It is very evident Dawn provides excellent care and genuinely enjoys caring for our dog.
Once again, I was very happy with the service Dawn provided for both me and my dog, Jagr. I look forward to the next time we need someone to look after Jagr! M
I first met Dawn at a meet and greet and she was very communicative and you could tell she had a lot of years working and taking care of dogs. It gave me peace of mind that she also works in a veterinarian office and that she can take my dog to her work. When I was gone, Dawn would send me photos of my dog and I knew she was in good hands.
Libby had a great time at Dawn's and with Bo. I didn't worry about her at all, she was well taken care of and had plenty of company. She loved it.
Trail was well taken care of and he had a wonderful time! I hope Dawn is available when I need a place to leave Trail again.
We felt very happy and comfortable that our dog Wiley was in good hands with Dawn and we hope to user her again.
Thank goodness I found Dawn through DogVacay! It was so reassuring knowing Jagr (my 15 year-old lab) was in such kind and capable hands while I was out of town for four days. Dawn is experienced not only with her own pets but with watching others' pets, and she is a vet-tech, as well... and I knew Jagr was in a caring home - close to home... she lives just 4 blocks away, and I wouldn't have found her without DogVacay. It was so fun getting the photos she sent and seeing that Jagr was contently curled up with his toys in her living-room. I did not worry about Jagr being well-taken care of... and I will not hesitate to leave Jagr in her care again. I recommend Dawn to other furry four-footed ones and their humans whole-heartedly! Dawn truly is pawsome!
Our dog has stayed with Dawn three times and everything's been great!
Another great stay for our 2 girls with Dawn! She was very flexible with our somewhat last-minute request, as well as with drop-off and pick-up times. We knew our dogs were being well-cared for and appreciated the photo updates and insightful feedback.
We felt very comfortable with Dawn taking care of our little guy. She was nice enough to send us updates and pictures of him while we were gone. Thanks, Dawn!
I loved the fact that I booked far enough in advance that Dawn took the weekend off to be with my 2 babies! Her home is great! Plenty of soft places for them to lie down next to her. I will definitely have her watch my dogs again.
Dawn did a great job with our special needs dog! She asked a lot of questions and genuinely interested in learning how to take care of him.
Wonderful, wonderful experience! Our Summer had a great time with Dawn and was very lovingly taken care of while we were gone. We recommend Dawn to everyone who wants to go on vacation without worrying about their dog. 100 percent recommendation!
5 April was so well adjusted when she came home. We could tell she was very well cared for!
Dawn & Bo were very accommodating and vet friendly! Dawn treated Hilde like her own. Hilde had a blast!
Dawn is awesome!!!!!!! Very flexible and accommodating for any situation that may arise. All my dogs loved her too!!!!! Me too, loved her...
Dawn was incredibly accommodating - a great hostess for our two girls! Our dogs are both shy with strangers, but they quickly warmed to Dawn. She sent us several great photo updates, too.
Dawn was very fast to respond to e-mails, and posted pictures of my dog while I was away. The dog was very well cared for, and seemed relaxed and happy when I picked her up. Thanks for a great experience, I would definitely recommend and use her again next time I need to board.
We had a great experience with Dawn! My puppy Drogo seemed happy, healthy and clean when I picked him up. It was clear that Dawn gave him lots of love and attention. The next day Drogo kept sniffing by the car, I think it was because he wanted to go back to visit Dawn!
I scheduled a last minute booking with Dawn and she was very quick to respond. I think my dog had a great time at her house and he came home very relaxed.
