About Diana

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi! We've grown up around dogs and love having them around our condo! I (Diana) am a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, so my hours can be flexible for drop-offs and pickups as I work only 10 minutes away. My roommate (Jenna) and I both help care for the dogs, so they receive double the love and attention. Many like sitting out on the balcony when it's nice out and watching the cars and light rail trains go by!

Please let me know if you’d like to schedule a meet-and-greet! We do require a meet and greet before a short stay (1-2 days) and request an overnight stay before longer visits.

A couple other things to note:
-We consider puppies as those under 2 years of age and unfortunately can only take dogs older than 2.
-As we are in a condo, we can't take dogs that like to bark a lot or bark while owners are away out of respect for our neighbors.
-If you are requesting a stay during a workday, your dog should be comfortable being left alone for 8 hours.

Diana did a great job with our dogs. We felt very comfortable knowing they were being watched by her.
Diana and Jenna were great! Very easy and welcoming. My pup had such a great time, I could tell he felt comfortable and got plenty of attention. Will definitely be going back!
Diana does a great job communicating during Reagan's stays, and keeps her active. She has been flexible for pickup and drop offs.
Diana was wonderful with Sidney! She was attentive and provided updates and photos. I will definitely book again! Thank you!
Ripley had a great time at Diana's. She is extremely accommodating. My new "go to" on Dog Vacay. 5++++
Charley had a great time with Diana. I received pictures daily updating me on the stay. Diana was also very flexible for drop off and pick up times which helped me out.
Diana has provided a wonderful experience for my dog. My dog is older and very attached to me. But Diana was able to have no issues in keeping her happy and well cared for. I am a return client.
Diana was great. Met with us ahead of time to make sure was comfortable, and took wonderful care of our energetic pup while we were gone. She even sent daily updates and photos to let us know how she was doing. Thank you so much!
Can't say how wonderful Diana was. She was so kind and attentive and acocmadating for us. Any pet who has her as a sitter is one lucky pet !
This was Mabel's first stay with Diana and we are very appreciative of how everything went. She was flexible and patient with our requests, shared reassuring pictures while we were away, and Mabel seemed relaxed and happy when we picked her up. Thank you, Diana!
Diana is flawless! She sent me picture updates and helped my pup negotiate tough dynamics with another dog. Would highly highly recommend.
Diana was fantastic with our Golden. She really went above and beyond to keep our Maggie comfortable.
This was my dog's first experience being away from us since we adopted her last May. I was not sure how it was going to go. Diana was very patient with her and sent me daily updates, which was very helpful. It was a good experience, and I appreciated her effort.
Diana was so great! I didn't have a single worry while I was out of town. She was very quick to respond to emails and sent pictures with updates during my trip.
We love Diana!! Marta loves going to her house and gets to go on walks and adventures with Diana, who makes her feel like part of the family. She is great at sending picture updates and administering medicine as well. When I drop Marta off, I know she will have a great time and that she is in the care of someone that loves animals and treats them as their own. I highly recommend her!!
Diana was very accommodating, and my dog seemed to have had a good time. I would have her look after my dog again.
Diana was great! I had a pretty last-minute need for boarding, which she graciously accommodated, and was flexible about schedules to boot. We did a meet and greet and I could tell immediately that she is a person who really loves dogs. I felt a million times better while I was away knowing that my dogs were with someone who would give them love and good care.
Diana is great! Very responsible and easy to communicate with. She is very professional and prompt to work with any situation to make me know that Nala is safe and enjoying her time! Thank you!
Diana was great! Our dog, Oliver, is sort of quirky/cranky in his old age. I was very nervous about leaving him, but Diana quickly put my mind at ease when she texted me a pic of Oliver sleeping on her couch. I found it so comforting to get her texts of how Oliver was doing throughout our trip. Plus I knew Diana was the best babysitter ever when she thought Oliver's quirks were actually cute. :)
She is very easy-going and you can tell she has a calm attitude with the dogs that rubs off on them (and me!)
When I picked Oliver up after our trip, he was happy and Diana said he was a good dog and easy to care for. I've never heard that about our cranky old Frenchie before. It warmed this overprotective mom's heart!!!
Diana is the best! I highly recommend her!
Milli seemed to enjoy her time, and I would definitely ask Diana to watch her again!
Diana was very flexible with pick up and drop off and sent me text updates on how Daisy was doing while I was away. I don't think Daisy wanted to leave when I picked her up!

I highly recommend Diana and will definitely be making reservations with her again!
Our dog had a great stay with Diana. Nice meet 'n greet, easy scheduling, and excellent care. I highly recommend Diana to others!
Diana was great. Really responsive and flexible. Izzy had a great time staying with her and we'd definitely recommend her/use her again.
Diana did an excellent job watching my dog Freyja. My dog was well cared for and I'm not sure she wanted to leave. I would definitely recommend Diana to anyone looking for a pet sitter.
Diana was an excellent host for my dog, Callie (Lab/Whippet mix). Diana has a history of caring for many dogs of all sizes, and I definitely trust her to watch my dog. I will use Diana again in the future, no doubt! She is very open to each dog and their personality - whether they enjoy playing with toys, companionship, using/sleeping in a crate or out of one, etc. Her knowledge of dogs and how to love them and care for them is truly one of a kind. You can tell from the get go that she is a true dog lover at heart and has been her entire life. She will make your dog feel at home as much as possible during their stay, spoiling them with new toys or treats to help ease any anxiety.

Callie had a great time and I can't wait to have Diana watch her again!
Diana was great to work with. She was very flexible with our schedule, and sent us pics of our little guy along the way. It was excellent ! Thanks for all your help, so we didn't need to worry !
Diana was great! My reservation was so last minute and she was able to accommodate. Knox was a little anxious at first but after the initial night she said he was doing great. She sent pictures and was always responsive when texting back and forth. Diana seems to genuinely love big dogs and I would most definitely use her again!
Thanks Diana!
Diana helped me feel very comfortable about leaving Hyde alone with a stranger for one of the first times. She sent me updates everyday and pics of him, which was really nice! I would definitely book again :).
Diana took care of our Cairn Terrier, Rocky, for 10 days. Rocky was well cared for and was in great spirits when we picked him up. We would definitely use Diana again to take care of Rocky. -John and Theresa
Perfect, as always!
This was the second time Kaylee has stayed with Diana and I will definitely be back. The process was super easy again...she included a map with directions and options for parking, sent photos of Kaylee during her stay, and let me know how she had been when I picked her up. Highly recommended!
Diana was a fabulous host! She was very responsive throughout the whole process and was really helpful in working with us to make arrangements for our 2 dogs for a long-term stay. One of our dogs had a pre-existing health problem flare up during their stay, and Diana notified us immediately and went above and beyond in making the necessary arrangements and keeping us informed. We will definitely be using Diana again!
Diana, as always, has been open, honest, sincere, loving toward my dog, earnest to show him she cares, and shows genuine joy at having him around. She treats him with respect for a human but also with kid gloves as he is still just a little guy!

She takes his care very seriously and wants to do a good job for you!

She's way too busy to have her all the times one would like! In her dog sitting life-- everyone loves her!! And, can ya blame them? Not enough Diana and Diana's love to go all the way around.

But I will say, she is phenomenal and once my dog saw her for the second time he tried to jump into the front seat to get to her. lol
She was fantastic!!!!
As usual, it was perfect.
Diana was WONDERFUL! We were gone for over two weeks and she took my two babies in like they were her own. My dogs have polar opposite personalities and she worked with them both beautifully, noticing their little odd "ticks". She cuddled the baby and let the old lady come and get attention when wanted. Diana sent me pictures and updates and asked questions if anything seemed out of sorts. She was a perfect choice!
Thank you so much Diana! I was able to enjoy my holiday away without worrying about my dog. Diana was very accommodating for our meet and greet, drop off, and pick up times. I loved the several photos she shared with me during my time away. I will for sure be booking Diana for my next trip away. Thanks again!
I can't recommend Diana highly enough. Everything was simple and easy and she made our dog feel instantly right at home. When we needed to extend our dog's stay because of a family emergency, she couldn't have been more accommodating. Truly a great experience.
Diana did a great job caring for our two dogs. She has a nice apartment and it is convenient to 35W/NE MPLS. We plan on using her again in the future.
My two dogs had an amazing visit with Diana! I have rarely felt so comfortable leaving my dogs with anyone. This was my first experience using Dog Vacay, and I did not know Diana previously. She provided an email with pictures each day to detail their activities and adventures. They received tons of attention and love while spending a long weekend in Diana's very capable care. I recommend her to anyone - she was a wonderful surrogate Mom to my pups while I had to be away. She is fabulous!
Diana was great! I needed a last minute sitter for my dog, Kaylee, and she responded right away. After the meet-and-greet I left her for the evening. Diana sent me a few pictures of Kaylee laying outside on the balcony (I guess she watched the cars below for quite awhile!) and asleep on the couch after their walk. Everything worked out really smoothly and I’ll definitely go back if I need puppy-sitting again!
