About Rose

57 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We would like the Dog Vacay families to know that our beloved sweet Brady was put to rest on May 23, 2014. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor that claimed his sweet soul. We will miss him dearly. His picture remains on our site.
Retired couple who love dogs. Picket fenced yard. Dog friendly home. We walk, talk and play with your pets. Pets have the free roam of our home as we do not use cages. Fussy, messy or loud doesn't bother us. We will take great care of your pets and treat them with kindness and affection. Please bring vaccination certificate including Bordatella.
We are trying very hard to only have one guest pooch during a stay unless the dogs are from the same family.

We are always happy with the care Rose and Tom give Roxie! They are wonderful caretakers and I will continue to use them as long as possible!
We are so happy to have found Rose & Tom. They are definitely animal lovers and so kind & friendly. Our dog, Rosie, was very well taken care of and she seemed happy to be with them. In fact, the next day I think she missed them. It was great to get pictures and updates of Rosie at their house.
I hope Tom & Rose are available the next time we go away. Thank you both for treating our dog as your own pet.
So very happy with Rosie and Tom. Our dog Gracie loves them. The communication is wonderful. They truly understand how much we miss our little one while we are gone and do their very best to let us know she is being loved and cared for, which helps us to enjoy our trips. We had to board Gracie while we went on a cruise before we heard about Dog Vacay. She would not eat. She lost 1/2 lb. of her total weight 5 lb. weight. No such problems with Rosie and Tom. She practically jumped out of my arms when we got to their house for her second stay--she really likes it there.
We are thrilled with the loving care our little Gracie received from Rosie and Tom. They put our concerns to rest with pictures and messages showing that our baby was enjoying her stay--playing, critter watching and going for walks.

We have been limiting our travel to pet friendly trips, and while we will still travel with Gracie occasionally, it is wonderful to know that we can leave her with Rosie and Tom without feeling guilty. We have already booked another stay for next month. This was a wonderful experience for us.
We feel very comfortable leaving Chance with Rose and Tom. Thank you for a terrific job and thanks for the daily updates and photos. You are the best.
I'm very please with the love and care Rosie and Tom give Dazie. When we go away its with peace of mind that Dazie is well cared for. Thanks Again Tom and Rosie
Tom and Rosie are always so great with Dazie. They are really great people. We're very comfortable leaving our fur baby with them. As always we're very happy with their care.
Rose and Tom are always so attentive and helpful. A very loving and caring couple. Roxie loves visiting with them. I am always at peace when she stays there!!
Rosie and Tom are very loving. I felt comfortable leaving Chloe there. I knew she would be well taken care of. Thank you so much Rosie and Tom!
Rose and Tom took excellent care of our dog Bentley. We left him in their loving care for over a month. He was walked twice a day, played with in the back yard, and brushed every other day (including his teeth). We received 25 updates, including pictures and videos, keeping us informed as to how he was getting along. We are so fortunate to have found Rose and Tom and can't imagine finding a better care facility. Bentley is already looking forward to his next vacation with them

Rosey and Tom are great! They take great care of our Addy and they treat her like she is their very own dog. They walk her and if its to cold out they play with her inside. Can't say enough! Very nice people.
Molly and Loki had a great vaca at Rosie and Tom's place. They took extra care with our boy Loki who is a poor eater and has to be coaxed to eat. They certainly enjoyed the fenced in yard and long walks. In fact they were probably ready to buy a timeshare over in Almont to visit at their leisure. We most definitely recommend them and will use them again. Thanks again for taking care of our special babies!
Rosie and Tom are really great people. Our Dazie was very happy there. I highly recommend them and will use them again.
Rosie and her husband Tom are awesome with our Stewie!!! We get daily photos and updates which we really appreciate. They go above and beyond what is expected!! SO happy that we found them on Dogvay. Once we drop him off, we know Stewie is being well taken care of....even spoiled. haha
Again, Rose was wonderful with our Cassie. She always takes such good care of her. It was such a blessing finding her so close to our home.
Roxie loves going over Rose and Tom's. My husband and I have had the opportunity to go on a few short trips the past few months and we are so thankful that we found Rose and Tom to take care of my precious little Roxie. They are very conscientious and loving.
Rose was wonderful with our Cassie. We were so comfortable knowing that our pet was being loved and taken care of. We can't say enough good things about her care.
Rose and Tom are wonderful people. They really were great to our Addy. They walked her a couple times a day. They played with her and treated her like she was their own pet. Very relaxed and didn't worry about her when we were away. They sent us pictures so we could see how she was doing!
We highly recommend them!
Could not find anyone that would take better care of Lily than Rose and Tom do. As soon as we got out of our car she new exactly were she was and ran up to the door barking for them. Their attention to her needs and wants are over and above what anyone could ask for. We have absolutely no concerns about her while we are away, and wouldn't consider taking her anywhere else.
Rose and Tom are wonderful, loving caretakers! I feel at peace whenever they watch my Roxie (and my other dog in the past). I feel very fortunate I have found this conscientious couple! 100% satisfied and will go back again!
Tom and Rose were wonderful hosts - I would highly recommend these people. They genuinely love dogs. They walked Addy at night and during the day and I really think she loved her visit. Very caring and loving people.
This was the first time that my doggies stayed with a pet sitter. I certainly picked the best one ever. Rosie and Tom were wonderful to communicate with. I received frequent updates and pictures, etc. which made me very happy as it was apparent that the babies were enjoying their vacation as much as I was enjoying mine. I wasn't worried about them at all. There was a weather delay of over 5 hrs. at JFK in NYC and the pups had to stay over another night. Rosie and Tom were so kind and understanding. I would certainly take Roxie and Duncan there again.
Rose and Tom are so accommodating. They are very loving and caring people! 100% happy with Rose and Tom.
We can't say enough about Tom and Rose. We would recommend them to anyone who needs someone to watch their pet!! It was our first time leaving our dog Max so we we felt really uneasy about it.

From the very beginning, in speaking with Rose on the phone, she answered all of my questions and was very pleasant and reassuring. When we dropped Max off we realized we forgot his dry food. They were so nice that they went to the store and bought his food for him. We received numerous messages and pictures daily that gave us such comfort in knowing he was being taken care of. They took him on walks, played with him, he even slept with them in bed.

Tom and Rose truly took care of Max like he was their own. They are wonderful people and we couldn't have asked them do any more for Max than they did. They are our first choice when we go on our next vacation!!
This is Bentley's second time with Rosie and Tom and we are gratefully to find such great individuals to care for our dog while away. We already have another dog vacay booked with them. While we are away Rosie sends us updates and pictures of him. They take him for walks and treat him like he is part of their family, we could have not found anyone better to care for our pooch.
Absolutely 100% perfect experience!!! Rose and Tom are so nice. They loved having my dogs over their house. The dogs were very calm and happy when I picked them up. It was our first overnight experience with them. I received a lot of pictures and updates. I will use them again when I need a dog-sitter. I am so delighted !
Rosie & Tom took wonderful care of our pug Maxine, who is 131/2 years old. She really enjoyed her stay and all of the attention she received from them. They are both wonderful with dogs and I would highly recommend them to my friends. I am so glad I found out about DogVacay and didn't have to use a kennel.

Rose took great care of our dog while we were away for the weekend. We will definitely be using them again!
My pups spent a few hours with Rose today for the first time. Rose was very sweet, kind and gentle, she took excellent care of my pups. They really liked her and her husband Tom. She has a true love for dogs. It was an excellent experience and I will have her watch them again!!
Rosie and Tom are the best! They love our little pooch, Gibby. Gibby 'cries' when we leave, but quits shortly after and fits right in with them. He is happy with them and we have full confidence in their care for Gibby. In fact, Rose and Tom would like to keep Gibby longer 'cause the like him so much. Now that's a good thing for Gibby! We would recommend these folks to anyone and are glad we found them.

Thank you to Rosie and Tom for loving on our little 'furbaby'.
Our family is thrilled to have found Rosie and her husband to care for our dog!!!! They treat Stewie just like family and we don't worry one bit while we are gone. I am so happy too, to have discovered Dogvacay on the radio. In the past, we had to leave our dog alone at home with a pet sitter coming in a few times a day. We were sick about the fact he was alone though. We can't say enough how happy we are with the care he gets with Rosie and Tom. :) Oh, PS: We get photos while we are gone too, which we really enjoy!!
This was the first time we used DogVacay and we were more than satisfied with the experience. Rose and Tom were so accommodating and friendly. They made Stewie feel like a king!! :) Never again will we have to worry about leaving home. Not once during our time away did I have any concerns about our dog. We knew he was in great hands. Thanks to the hosts and DogVacay!!
Rosie and Tom, were fantastic with my dog Sammy! If I lived closer or am in the area again I would definitely leave him. They treated him very much like their own dog! Can't say enough about them loved the daily updates and photos.
Nancy from Toronto
Rose and Tom were just wonderful and very attentive to our wire-haired fox terrier, Shelby. It was clearly apparent from the regular emails and pictures they sent to us while we were in Italy that Shelby was getting the royal treatment!! She was walked daily, groomed, and played with. Rose and Tom are dog lovers and it shows the minute they meet your pet! We will definitely have them take care of Shelby the next time we go out of town! We highly recommend this top-notch Dog Vacay host!
The DogVacay couple we normally have puppy-sit were unavailable during the dates we needed a good home for our Gibby. So - we went on DogVacay and searched again for a suitable pooch sitter for our fur-baby.

We found Rosie and Tom Lefler and arranged a meet-n-greet with them. It was another match for us. Our only concern was the distance for us to drive. However, after our meeting with them, we decided the drive would be worth it.

So 4 days or so later, we took our little Gibby to Rosie and Tom's and left him in their care. We left for our trip with no worries. Gibby thought he should leave with us, but we were comfortable leaving him and they were ready to care for him.

While we were gone, Rosie and Tom took Gibby for 2 daily long walks. They played with his toys with him. He cuddled up to each of them. He ate his food better for them then he does for us. He was happy to see us when we got back, but he seemed very happy to be with them also.

All in all, we would refer others to Rosie and Tom's as well. We are very pleased with DogVacay. We now have found 3 happy, comfortable homes for our Gibby when we cannot take him with us. We have used 2 of them so far, and the caretakers seem to love our little pooch - it goes both ways.

Thank you, Rosie and Tom, for allowing us to relax while away just knowing you were taking good care of Gibby.
Tom and Rose are a fun, outgoing couple who obviously love dogs! They took wonderful care of our "Mr. Hollywood." He seemed to make himself at home with their dog Brady, and when we picked him up, we could tell he had been well fed. ;) We will definitely bring Hollywood back next time he needs a place to stay.
Once again everything was great and went well with Pipin (my lab mix) staying with Rose L. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful, trustworthy person to leave my dog with when she is not able to come with us. Rose has watched Pipin several times, I will definitely use Rose and Dog Vacay again, thanks for the peace of mind........
Our puppy Buddy's stay with Rose was wonderful! Rose and her husband took such good care of him. Because he is still a puppy, they kept an extra eye on him to keep him safe. It was comforting to know that he was in loving hands. Rose even took the time to email us photos of Buddy which showed how much she cared for him and allowed us to see how happy and relaxed he was. We really appreciated receiving them. Rose's Dog Haven is just that! A haven for our Buddy - a loving, caring home. We cannot thank her enough for all the time spent with him making him at home, taking him for romps in the yard, playing and loving him. I would highly recommend Rose to anyone wanting their pet to receive a warm welcome and a playful and caring stay. This will not be our last time bringing Buddy to stay at Rose's Dog Haven!
Once again my dog (Pipin) stay with host Rose L. was great for myself and for Pipin. They take great care of her and are very accommodating. I highly recommend Rose L. and look forward to having her and her husband watch my dog again in the future....
Rose and her husband were really a dream come true for our dog boarding needs! The made the whole process a breeze - from initial contact to a meet & greet to the final plan details and drop-off/pick-up. The communication was great through the whole process. They were flexible, accommodating to all special needs/requests, caring, and very loving to our dog. They were happy and eager to play with our dog, pet her, walk her, etc. It was such a comfort to know that our dog was in loving hands while we were on vacation. Rose even posted several pictures on the website of our dog playing and resting at their home - so we could tell that our girl was feeling happy and at home - she really was having a vacation of her own. We will definitely be in touch with Rose again if we ever need a sitter for our dog in the future. Rose and her husband truly went way above and beyond to accommodate our arrangements for drop-off and pick-up - and they the definitely took GREAT care of our dog. I cannot recommend them highly enough - the whole experience was perfect!
This is an ideal location for anyone wishing to leave their pets in a loving, caring home. My Quinn enjoyed playing with the family pet, Brady, and had a big house and yard to run around in. She looked forward to the daily walks to the small village streets and I appreciated the photo updates.
Pipins stay with Rose L went fantastic, they took great care with my dog Pipin. Rose and her husband took Pipin on some walks and played in the yard. I could not be happier with the care they took, thanks a million!
