We picked up a happy dog.
I stumbled upon DogVacay because we needed to place our 10 month puppy somewhere during our honeymoon. Vets are a safe bet but I wanted a place where our puppy could have plenty of play time and not stay cooped up in a cage. Dawn has other dogs which I liked and they are professional in introducing their dogs to yours so all are safe and comfortable. They're also accommodating if you'd like to bring your own crate, toys, etc. I am glad we found Dawn and her family and would feel comfortable in using them again!

Another great stay for Phoebe .. it is so nice for us to have somewhere we feel comfortable leaving Phoebe longterm. Dawn is great and very accommodative when our plans changed at the last minute and we needed Phoebe to stay longer. We'll be back yet again.

We are so happy to have found Dawn. Prior to our two week vacation, we went out of our way to board Phoebe somewhere where she would have other dogs to play with freely and outside space so she could run off some of her endless energy. We are thrilled with the choice we made. Phoebe appeared to be very happy with her new friends and we received regular text and photo updates. Best of all, Dawn went out of her way to work on Phoebe's endless dietary issues and appears to have found her a new food which her stomach has taken very well to! She even sent us home with a bag. For that, we will be endlessly grateful. We will definitely be calling on Dawn again.

Dawn and her family took wonderful care of Georgie & Lucy on Dec 20th. She accommodated a last minute cancellation and date change. Dawn took care of them for over 8 hours and sent pictures to me of each dog during their time with her. She made them feel so welcomed and showered them with affection. My husband and I would absolutely have Dawn care for our dogs again. She is a lovely and kind-hearted person.

Very pleased. Pup was in great spirits when we picked him up.
Dawn's family was a life saver!!! Both for the wellbeing of my dog (who is my everything) and and for my sanity.

*A little introduction (this is NOT yet about Dawn but will help understand my gratitude to Dawn and her family):
I was away traveling in Europe since one week when I made the shocking discovery that the petsitter I had initially hired to stay with my dog in our house, never did!! When my neighbor went to check on my dog after I had a nightmare he had lost a lot of weight, caught a bladder infection and was incredibly sad. So so sad! It was truly heartbreaking! From so far away my hands felt tied, I love my dog so much and wished I could have beamed myself to the states in an instant to save him!! It was late night at that point. My dog was brought to our Vet by a friend first thing in the morning, put on antibiotics and even his Vet said he was unrecognizable because he was so traumatized from having been left abandoned. He is only 9 months old.

NOW, Dawn enters the picture:-)
I found Dawn over the internet, she was very welcoming and accommodating and took him in right away last minute!! He needed two antibiotics mornings and evening. My dog can be tricky with taking medicine because he is too smart for his own good sometimes ;-)
Dawn's family tried different foods a s pill pockets and quickly found the one trick that works on him! You can tell they love and adore dogs and I couldn't be more grateful that Dawn saved us. And…my Baby was even allowed to sleep in Dawn's bed, sleeping in bed is one of his favorite things I shamefully will admit here :-)
I can't say enough good things about Dawn and her family!!!!! Thank you so so so very much!!
When I picked my Baby up he looked so much happier and better just 2 days later! And what is extra sweet is that Dawn sent me the nicest photo updates of my Baby playing with other dog which made me so happy! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!!

Dawn took great care of our dog.
We can't thank Dawn and her family enough for taking such fantastic care of Maddie for a week while we were out of town. We knew she would be in great hands when she didn't want to leave after meeting Dawn and her dogs during the meet and greet. She loved having the big yard to run and roll around in and was treated like one of the family. We loved seeing pictures of her and knew she was having a blast. Dawn was also great in helping give Maddie some medicine while we were gone - which can always be tricky! We would not hestitate to use Dawn again for any of our dogvacay needs. Thanks again for giving us peace of mind and for making her so happy while we were away. See you soon! :)

My pup had a blast with Dawn and her dogs! I really appreciated that Dawn kept in contact with me and sent me pictures. My little guy was absolutely exhausted from all of the puppy playtime! Thank you, Dawn!
Our one year old mini-schnauzer, Masey just spent a wonderful week w/ Dawn and her family. A week before we were to leave for our vacation, my regular dog sitter fell and broke her leg. I had to find someone "quick" as we couldn't cancel our vacation and a traditional boarding place would never due! Dawn and her family are wonderful! It's easy to see their love for dogs and receiving photos of Masey playing w/ their two german shepherds put my mind at ease while we were away. We definitely will use them again!

Sonny had a great time with Dawn and her family. He was a favorite of Dawn's daughter, who let him sleep with her. I felt confident that he had a warm, welcoming environment and that his caretakers could handle his energy level. I highly recommend this home! Thanks Dawn. Sonny says hi!

Hudson had a great time, AGAIN! He is a little tuckered out, but it is all good. Thanks Dawn:)
Bare had a grand time!!!! He definitely wants to have another sleep over !!!! Thank you Dawn and family for taking such loving care of our Bare.
Fantastic experience... Our Hudson felt right at home. Dawn and her family are true animal lovers. Hudson will be back!
This has been the best decision ever! I'm so happy to have found this site! Dakota had a blast, we received updates and pictures of him on his vacay. He is already missing his wonderful hosts! He will definitely be coming back to play again, again Thank you for everything! :)

Our dogs spent two nights at Dawn's house, and I could tell that they had a great time. Dawn and her dogs are very friendly. Nice and quiet neighborhood. The yard is pretty big. We will definitely ask her to take care of our dogs again.
I have left my dog with Dawn twice now and I couldn't be more pleased! It's such a great feeling to come back from a trip to find a happy (and tired) puppy! He was treated like family. After I returned the first time, I even noticed that my dog had learned a new trick during his stay! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

We felt so comfortable leaving our dog, Zoey, with Dawn. She and her family cared for Zoey just as we do. Dawn sent us pictures, which made being away from our dog a bit easier and she was extremely flexible with our travel plans. When we came to pick Zoey up, she didn't want to leave! We will definitely be asking Dawn the next time Zoey needs a dog vacay! :)
