About Denise

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello fellow dog lovers! My name is Denise and I'm a dogaholic! I have over seven years experience working at a dog daycare. I've also been a dog boarder for nine years. Supervising the play and interactions at the daycare between 35 to 40 dogs a day taught me to recognize various signals and behaviors and to understand what they mean. As any dog owner knows, each dog has a unique personality. I always treat every dog according to their individual needs. Dogs who have stayed here once always act thrilled on their return visit.

Our Jack Russel enjoyed his stay and seemed to fit right in at Denise's place. She was very friendly and clearly loves dogs. Our boy seemed well rested and calm at pick-up, but I know he enjoyed walking in the historic neighborhood because he didn't want to get in the car as we left. Thanks again for a great experience!

I won't hesitate to use Denise again in the future. My little girl was in good shape and spirits when I picked her up after two nights. Denise is experienced and conscientious.
Denise was nice enough to book us 2 weekends in a row and was flexible with out drop off and pick up times. She was great with communication.
Our boys were happy and tired when I picked them up. Denise was very nice and answered all my questions.
Denise was very kind and accommodating. We ended up needing Rashi to stay with her one more night than we had originally anticipated and she was happy to have her the extra day.

The only thing I wish was different is that Denise only provides a landline for communication. Being in text contact would be a nice feature, as it is often hard to make phone calls and connect that way while traveling.

Denise was fantastic!! Neither of my dogs are well trained. One has stranger anxiety and the other is extremely excitable. Not only did Denise get us booked last minute AND still manage to squeeze in a meet & greet for my anxious girl, but both dogs came home healthy, happy and even calm!! My wild-child didn't even bark when I rang the bell to pick them up!! An AMAZING feat if you know my Speedy. She even said their stay was "mellow & pleasant" ... two words NEVER previously used to describe my dogs. I am so impressed with her knowledge of dog behavior
& training that I will definitely book again. And am not even phased by not having photos of the dogs sent while I was away. I knew they were in good hands and Denise was very responsive to my calls & emails. THANK YOU Denise! (We've been home 2-hours and Speedy has not yet barked!)

Denise seemed very knowledgeable about dogs and good dog behavior. Lola came back very tired from a lot of time spent playing and exercising. She was very well-behaved, too. Definitely recommended!
Denise was very accommodating with my husband and I's odd travel schedule. She was very friendly and knowledgable. Luna really liked Denise and was very happy to see her. Because Luna felt comfortable at her home and seemed happy to be there we will definately use Denise again in the future.

Great! Denise is awesome. The girls love her and come back to me very well taken care of. I only wish that she had some land or a large yard for them to play and run in. I do, however, truly appreciate her taking them on several walks throughout the day. :)

This was the second multi-week stay that Cesca enjoyed at Denise's place. Cesca always comes back super happy and well-behaved!

Denise is a wonderful host with an excellent instinct when it comes to more fearful and reactive dogs like ours. She was incredibly patient and understanding in working over the initial hurdle to gain Cesca's trust.

Cesca can't wait to stay with her again!

We had never left our 1 year old pup with anyone before and had a lot of apprehension. Denise instantly put us at ease. I was also able to speak with her on the phone prior to making a reservation. It was a quick and simple process. I would of course use her again. Our pup was happy and healthy when we picked her up. It was 100% positive.

OJI has been going to Denise for several weeks. He is always excited to go there and is a very happy boy when picked up!!! Denise interacts and plays with the dogs and is very good about ensuring good dog socialization occurs!
Denise was cordial and our pug came home with no issues. no cell phone but she answered the phone every time we called.
Fabulous, as always. My dogs were excited to see Denise when I dropped them off and were calm, happy, and well-loved when I picked them up. Denise's loving care makes it possible for me to relax totally when I'm away.
Denise was very kind and my dog was happy and healthy when I picked him up!
Most Excellent. When they heard that they were going back to Denise, they leapt into the car.

When I picked them up last night, they didn't want to get into the car. It makes my heart happy to see them so happy and to realize that Denise so completely understands my dogs and truly cares for them.

Great!
Denise is wonderful. The dogs are so calm when I pick them up. She's reliable and caring.
The level of Denise's experience with dogs shows through in how well attuned she is to the needs and quirks of more fearful and skittish dogs. She was super patient and understanding in working with us to help our dog quickly overcome her anxiety with new people over a couple of playdates. Our dog had a great time during her stay and came home in terrific spirits. We all look forward to seeing Denise again!

Denise is great. My dog felt very comfortable at her house and was relaxed and content when I brought her home. Denise has a lot of experience with dogs and really pays attention to social cues.
My two Cairn terriers, one with special needs, loved staying with Denise. They were so excited to return for daycare. I would definitely have them stay with her again.
Denise was there for us when we needed someone in a short notice. Very professional and huge animal lover. Our Lilly took to her and we left feeling comfortable and able to enjoy our trip. We knew she was in good hands. Again...very professional and we loved that about Denise. We will definitely be using her again and again and again!!!

I had a wonderful experience with Denise from booking Rascal and Tara's stay (blathering on and on about their special treats, pillows, food, etc.), to needing to change the drop off time at the last minute (no problem), to delivering them to her loving hands, to picking up two happy and calm spaniels at the end of their visit.
I will use Denise again without hesitation!

Denise was a great host! She was very flexible with pick up and drop off times, which I greatly appreciated with my hectic work schedule. My dog is very picky about peoole, but he took to Denise right away. He was calm and happy everyday when I picked him up from daycare!

I was a little hesitant to leave my baby with someone while I was gone, but all worries were gone when I met with Denise. I knew my dog would be taken care of and loved. When I picked her up she was happy. It's nice knowing someone else will love your dog as much as you do while you're gone. I'll definitely be using Denise again in the future.

Denise is new to doggievacay but she is not new to caring for dogs. I met her several years ago. She worked at the doggie daycare where my dog stayed intermittently. After a year or two of watching her in action I asked her to care for my dog while I was out of town. Since then Mabel has stayed with Denise many times, too many to count. I have never been worried about her while she's in Denise's care. When I pick Mabel up after a trip she's happier, more obedient and cleaner than she was when I dropped her off. Denise is an experienced and gentle trainer. I see her ignore negative behavior and reward positive behavior. She has Mabel in the palm of her hand in the first couple of minutes. Mabel is an easy dog to care for but, like most, she has her quirks. Denise manages those quirks with finesse. I highly recommend Denise without a second's hesitation.

Denise was great! She took great care if my XL dog Penelope (170pounds) without any issue. Not many people can handle such a giant dog but Denise was able to do it without breaking a sweat. I would absolutely rebook with Debise again!
Denise was very friendly and reassuring in her dog experience and knowledge. We were impressed by her attentiveness to our Kyrie - a female doberman who is quite the princess! It was the first time we left our girl overnight, let alone 6 days. Kyrie was happy and healthy when we returned to pick her up. Denise said Kyrie even befriended a couple of small dogs, quite an accomplishment. We would not hesitate to recommend Denise and will definitely use her service again. I was especially glad to have someone who would be with our girl 24/7 and not leave her alone for hours!
On a side note - we traveled out of state and Denise's location was a breeze to access highway 84 to get to and from the airport.
Thank You so much Denise!

I knew as soon as I met Denise that I didn't need to worry about a thing. Denise is very knowledgable about dogs and even my shy and needy Annabelle took to her right away. Denise was professional and reliable and I will absolutely use her again in the future.
