About Denise

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband David and I are lifelong pet lovers/owners. My husband works from home and I love to walk so I hope your pup does to. We host one pup at a time unless from the same family. So relax and enjoy your vacation and travel with the peace of mind knowing your pup is in a loving home. We understand your concerns in leaving a pet under someone else’s care. We would recommend that you come to our home for a meet and greet prior to your vacation so you can become comfortable with us and we can understand your pets needs. Our home has a medium size backyard that is fenced in and easily accessible.

While you are away please feel free to contact us at any time and we will send you pictures or texts whenever you like.

Looking forward to meeting you and your best buddy.

I was very happy and pleased with Denise's care of Danny, especially the time she took to walk him. I feel good I have found Denise and David to be Danny's hosts and have trust and confidence in them.
Denise and Dave were awesome! This was our first time using a service of this type for our fur baby and it could not have gone any better. From the initial meet and greet I knew having our dog stay with Denise and Dave was going to be the ideal option while we were out of town. They treated Ammo as a member of their own family which gave us the peace of mind needed to enjoy our vacation and not worry about him. Denise sent daily texts and photos of Ammo with updates on how he was doing and was very accommodating to our travel times when it came to drop off and pick up. I would highly recommend Denise and Dave and will definitely be using them again!
Denise and Dave were A+ Would recommend without any hesitation. Had a reservation for months for my dog and they were agreeable to take a new kitten too at the last minute. They truly made me feel so comfortable and able to enjoy my time away which is Priceless. I got daily updates with pictures.
My babies were very well cared for and seemed part of the family. They will definitely be back!
What a great couple! Honestly, I thought my dog was not missing us at all! Denise and Dave would send photos and my dog was relaxing, playing, cuddling, etc. She was taken for long walks and was part of the family. I think they were great and we would definitely, with no hesitation, use them again. Awesome experience with Denise and Dave and DogVacay!
Another great stay for Mylie. She loves Denise and David and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a pet sitter. Thanks again.
my somewhat shy dog took to them immediately and was well taken care of. we'll be back
This was my first time leaving my beagle with a non-relative and I couldn't be more relieved! We had a great experience with Denise and Dave and I would refer them without hesitation!
Denise and Dave are simply amazing! When we met Denise at her home for a meet and greet with our dog chance she instantly understood our boy. We felt her love for animals immediately. When we left chance we received updates and pictures daily, he had a great time staying with there family. It was a relaxing experiance for myself and jaclyn knowing he was in a great home on our wedding weekend. We both thought it would be super hard leaving chance but we totally felt comfortable like he was just being dropped off at a close friends house. I would recommend Denise to everyone! We will be using Denise and Dave again in the near future. So happy chance fit right into your family! It was a pleasure meeting you both! Thank you from our family to yours!
My two pups had a great time on their week long vacation and when I got them back they were still exhausted for the next two day! It was great! Denise would send pictures and texts on how they were doing and what fun they were having that day. They definitely put my mind at ease and when I go away again Ozzy and Olive will definitely be back to enjoy themselves all over again.
Denise and Dave took such amazing care of our Bella. The daily updates and pictures sent made us feel very comfortable knowing she was in good hands. Bella had full range of their house and backyard and went on numerous walks. Denise and Dave treated Bella like she was part of their family and Bella had a great time. We could tell she missed Denise and Dave when she went back home with us. We will definitely come back again when we need someone to look after our baby
Big thank you to Denise and Dave for taking care of our doggy while we were on vacation. We were able to relax knowing Magnum is in good hands and having a blast. Denise and Dave have a very professional approach, they love dogs and they will love yours like their own. Magnum was exercised every day and spoiled with belly rubs. When we returned we could tell he was in paradise - he was excited to see us, but didn't want to leave. :)
Denise sent pictures and messages updating us on what's going on with our boy. We will definitely ask for their help again!
Denise was a wonderful host for Miley. She kept us informed of how Miley was doing everyday and we believe she had a companion while we were away. We are very pleased with the service and plan to book again.
A few days before leaving for vacation, my dog sprained his knee and just like any parent I was extremely stressed about leaving my dog in his condition until I found Denise's profile. I drove an hour away to Denise because I felt she was a perfect fit to someone who genuinely cared about dogs. As soon as my dog met her he warned right up to her! Denise constantly kept me updated on my dogs condition as was so kind to give him medication and nurse him while mom was away. Very pleased with Denise and her service. Definitely looking forward to rebooking when needed!!
Denise and David were excellent hosts for Mylie again. This was the second time we used them. Denise sent updates and photos throughout the day.

I would recommend them to everyone. We will be using them again in October when I am away with the family.
You can see that Denise is a very caring person and loves dogs. When we're ready to go away again this will be the only place my dogs will go. As long as Denise and David can handle them. Again thanks.
This is the first time we used the Dogvacay website and we were lucky to find Denise and Dave to watch our family dog. The whole process went very smoothly. We received response from them within 2 hours. We could tell that they genuinely love dogs. Their house has a fenced in backyard that Mocha enjoys. He came back very relaxed and happy. Thank you both,
Tsung D
Mylie loved her visit. I got multiple updates with pictures throughout the day on her status. She was really cared for and I was very happy with the great service. I would recommended Denise and David to everyone. I will definitely use them again if I have to travel again.
Once again, Denise and David were excellent hosts to our Puggle, Autumn! This was Autumn's third stay with D&D. Everyday while we were on vacation Denise sent updates and photos. When we experienced mobile phone issues, Denise sent emails, so that we remained updated on Autumn's visit.

Autumn was very comfortable and happy in D&D's home. Not only are Denise and David experienced hosts, but they are loving and caring people. They are now extended members of our family!
David and Denise were extremely accommodating and accepted two last minute reservations. They have a great fenced in yard and my pup was quite comfortable in their home. Highly recommend.
I cannot say enough great things about Denise and David! They took excellent care of our 5-year old Puggle, Autumn.

From the day of our meet and greet, until pick-up after Autumn's first overnight, Denise and David were amazing hosts. They understand dog behavior and provide a very comfortable and loving home.
Denise and her husband have been great with my dog. They accepted a last minutes reservation and saved me! as soon as I brought the dog, I saw Chispa was really at ease while she's usually very shy. When we're picked her up, she started walking back toward Denise's house so I think she had an awesome time! I would highly recommend Denise for your dog!
We were nervous about leaving our two pups, because they have never been away from us.

Denise and her husband turned out to be the perfect hosts: Our cocker spaniel whimpered and had separation anxiety the first night (as expected) but by the second day of their one week stay, Denise had taken such good care of her that she had relaxed into her new surroundings.

Almost everyday that we were away, Denise sent us cute pictures of our dogs and what they were doing - lavishing on the couch (something she is not allowed to do in our own home) and cuddling with Denise's elderly mother.

When I came to get them a week later, I expected the dogs to go nuts when they saw me. Instead they were excited but nothing over-the-top, suggesting to me that they were well looked after.

I wholeheartedly recommend Denise.
Denise and Dave are wonderfully warm, caring and attentive. My dog was happy and well cared for in their home. I received daily messages and photos when I was away. I felt wonderful and at ease that he was in their care! I will definitely bring my dog to them again!
Denise (and David) were nothing short of amazing! I was a little worried about leaving our dog anywhere because she can be a handful (only 8 months old) but after five days at their house she came back happy, well behaved, and very well taken care of. We've left her other places before and this was by far the most calm and content I've ever seen her after time away from us.

They were both so sweet and excited to spend time with Callie. Their home was clean and calm and I knew right away it would be the perfect environment for her. They took her on multiple walks and sent pictures and updates everyday. Not to mention it was over Thanksgiving weekend and they were still willing and able to play with her often! We could enjoy our vacation with no stress and felt at ease knowing she was in good hands.

We can't say enough good things about Denise and David and are so glad we found them to be a home away from home for Callie. We will absolutely be using them again whenever we can! She might not want to come home next time :)
