About Conni

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had dogs, mostly BIG dogs, all my life--I can't imagine life without them.

My home was recently described by a client as "dog-centric" and I would not argue with that assessment! I have a good-sized yard, completely fenced, with grass and bark. Inside, my house is very dog-friendly, with lots of beds and toys, and full access tothe backyard. I work at home, so I am pretty much always here.

Please note that I don't take puppies or small dogs, mostly because they irritate our old Shepherd.

I invite you to let me make your furry kid part of my family.

Conni was thorough in gathering all the information necessary for Winnie to have a great stay, which I'm sure she did!
Connie was very nice to work with. She wanted to make sure she had all the information to make Reezy's stay as good as possible. We will use Connie again.
We were very pleased with all aspects of Kobe's stay with Conni from my first contact with her.we couldn't do a meet and greet since we live an hour away.Conni gathered lots of info about Kobe and even looked up his breed characteristics. Most implorant Kobe made himself at home and seemed very happy with his stay. We will be hoping to have him stay whenever we return to Napa. 5 + stars!!
Coco had a great time at Conni's house, treats her like her own dog.
Conni was such a great choice for my Coco. She's very warm and welcoming.
My wife and I decided to take a cruise for our 20th anniversary, but we were concerned about being away from our dog, Cody. We had never left any of our dogs, not even overnight, and this decision was definitely the most difficult of the vacation.

After weeks of searching for the right person, we discovered DogVacay, and Conni S. When Cody and Conni met at her home it was obvious our search was over. Conni was wonderful. She took great care of Cody, and provided us with regular pictures and updates. The latter really eased our minds, and brought smiles to our faces. Knowing how well Cody did with Conni makes any future vacation decision a snap.

If we could give DogVacay and Conni more than 5 stars, we would. Please do yourself a favor, try them both out, you'll never regret it.
We were so happy with the care that Conni provided our furry baby. She takes awesome care of her and Baily is so happy to go there. This is our second time using Conni and we will use her again in November.
No problems, Connie was very nice. I am sure Riley had a wonderful stay.
Conni is fabulous! She creates such a calm environment for her guest dogs as well as for the doggie owners. Her home is very organized and set up well for dog guests. Conni is easy to communicate with, she's a great listener, and she is very smart and consciousness about her responsibilities to your dogs!
I appreciated that she kept her other boarders out of the way when my dog entered her home so he could sniff around before meeting the others. The yard is very cute and the dogs have access to come and go in the yard,

My dog just spent one night as we went to a winery dinner. He seemed happy when we picked him up and did not want to leave yet as he was having fun with one of the toys. I would recommend Conni!
Always enjoys going to see Conni. She is so positive with Ace and have seen pictures where she plays with him. I feel very confident that Ace is well taken care of
Conni is fantastic. Took my dog at the last minute and he was so happy there. Wish he could've stayed longer!
Connie took great care of Oso. She texted me a few photos of Oso while I was in Hawaii and I was glad to see him getting along with other dogs. He looked very happy. Connie accommodated Oso'e needs well and listened to my concerns.
Conni cared for our three dogs during our wedding weekend. They all returned home happy, pampered, and healthy. Couldn't ask for more!
Conni -
Was a great host to our Aussi shepard very very professional and warm. Her place is a gem for dogs and our dog. When we picked up Bindi we could tell she had a great time with Conni. I highly recommend Conni and her DogVacay experience.
Zoe enjoyed her doggy vacation with Conni and her two new friends Truman and Kevin. It was wonderful to find this new doggy vacation home for our baby girl to stay while we are in Napa. Thanks Conni!
Conni was exceptional. I unequivocally recommend her. Apparently our Truman barked a lot which is not the norm. But she seemed more concerned for him than any hassle it presented to her. She is kind, respectful and a true dog lover. You cannot go wrong entrusting your dog to Conni.
As far as I can tell, Habiba enjoyed her day at Conni's house. I felt good leaving her with Conni, and thus could enjoy my trip on the Wine Train that day. If we are lucky enough to return to Napa, I will check in with Conni again.
Conni was great and Gina enjoyed her stay!
I stumbled across Dog Vacay after having a terrible experience with an overnight boarding kennel. Conni took the time to have two meet and greets and make sure that my sometimes shy pup would be ok with the other dogs in her care. I honestly never worried about him the entire time I was on a much needed vacation. Conni is a gem and I am forever grateful for her love of big dogs :)
Conni was very professional and my dog loved being there. I felt so much better knowing my dog was safe. I highly recommend her. Thank you Conni!!
Frida was well taken care and had a great time! We will definitely use her again.
Conni was wondeful! My dog returned happy and filled with love from Conni and her sweet Bailey! Looking forward to using her services again in the future!
He was welcomed, as usual, like it was home!!!
Dottie had a great time, as always. Thank you, Conni!
Connie was great! We really appreciate that she took good care of Laila. Laila had a great time meeting new dog friends and being able to play with them when she was there. We'll definately use Conni again! Thank you!
We felt so comfortable leaving our dog with Conni while attending a wedding in Calistoga for the weekend. She went out of her way to accommodate our schedule. Cody thoroughly enjoyed his stay.

Conni, watched our "lil" senior Shih-Tzu, "Denzel"
for the second time, on 9/19/15.

We were late, due to last minute gliches, and traffic.
But, we did call to inform Conni, we would be a bit late. Conni, was patient, and kind,and received us
with smiles,.

She is always reassuring and warm towards us, as well as to our pooch. She is respectful of our con-cerns, and honest about any behavior, or eating
issues. We appreciate that, and because , she is
candid with us, she has gained our trust.

We are obviously lucky, to have found, Conni, and
appreciate her , very much. She is truly a people as well as an animal person, and that is very import-
ant to us.
Excellent, as always. Thank you so much, Conni!
Another lovely stay at Conni's. Thank you!
Wonderful, as always! Thank you!!!!!
Conni welcomed my babies into her home with open arms and comfy beds! From the pictures she sent, our dogs made themselves right at home!! It is comforting to know that our dogs were well cared for and treated as much a part of the family as Conni's own dogs.

Thank you so much for the service! We will book again!
Conni was very friendly and had a nice yard for my dog!
My active Aussie stayed with Conni for more than a week. He came home tired and happy. What more can I ask for. Conni's space is large enough for an active dog to get good exercise and shady areas too to escape the heat. I also loved the photos she sent while I was away.
Conni is so fantastic and makes it so much easier for me to leave my Leo behind. He loves it too and races up the walk whenever we arrive. She has been the best resource and gift to us. If you decide to leave your best pal in her care you will not regret it.
Thank you so much, Conni! Dottie had a great time and we look forward to another visit next time we're in Napa.
It was very nice having Conni watch my dog. She was flexible with my dropping and picking up my dog and met me at the door. She sent me a cute photo of my dog at her house. She has other dogs, which I don't think my dog enjoyed, but she gave me plenty of heads up.

I would definitely work with Conni again and have her watch my dog. I think she's a true dog lover!
Once again, Conni was wonderful with our Bode. She takes very good care of him and we can leave him knowing that we don't have anything to worry about. So glad we found her!
Always perfect!
Conni was/is fantastic. Responded quickly to a desperate last minute plea and was wonderful to my little guy. She is obviously a dog lover and wonderful caretaker. Very thorough in asking where he is at and what his specific needs are. I appreciate the consistency it offers for my puppy and am grateful to know that I have a lovely home away from home where I can leave him in the future.
Conni was a GREAT HOST! Thank you so much for taking care of Remy!
Once again the boys came home happy and exhausted from their fun filled time with Conni.
Conni was great! My wife and I are new to the area and needed someone to watch Zooey (our dog).

Conni sent over a form asking great questions, which made us feel like she really wanted to provide a comfortable and familiar experience for Zooey.

Our flight back was delayed 4 hours putting us in too late to pick up Zooey. Conni was super helpful and supportive in extending Zooey's stay.

We'd recommend Conni!
Conni has watched my dog a few times now and I am so thankful for her services. She is quick to respond to my reservation requests and she is very amicable to work with. I truly feel she loves dogs and gives my critter a fun, safe place to call home when I need to board him. She has a nice big back yard and a very comfortable indoor area, where my boy made himself at home. I saw a photo of him laying on her couch! I would completely recommend Conni to watch your loved ones when you are in the Napa area.
Always loving and caring!
He is always a happy pup!!!


Thank you for being the kind, patient, understanding person you are. The only reason I gave you a four rating instead of a five, is because I had only had "Denzel" there once, and I feel a five rating should be given after a number of visits.

But you still received a high rating from us, and , honestly, when we found you, we found a "diamond in the rough". People like you, are a rarity, and I appreciate you, more than you will ever know.

Thank you for being so conscientious, and your nice smile, immediately put us at ease. Lots of petcare providers claim they love animals, but, you are the real deal.

Gary and Carol, your fans from Vacaville
Once again the boys were happy with their stay. Thank you Conni for being there for them and us.
Always, a perfect experience for Rusty.
Thanks so much for the love and care you gave to Sonora and Skye. Sonora is cuddling the bunny rabbit you got for her and I think both dogs are wandering around wondering where you are! From Pat and Dale
Fabulous as always!
Conni is freaking great. Halo loves staying there.
Rosey loves to stay at Connie's house. It is clearly a dog-centric place with happy dogs all around. Rosey comes back tired and happy, just the way we like her! I always call Connie when we need a pup-sitter. Yea!
Just wonderful! He makes himself right at home, and he is treated like one of the family. He will be returning for another Dog Vacay the end of February.
Connie is extremely knowledgeable and professional in dealing with me and our dog Kramer. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone that needs caring for their dog. Wonderful yard for the dogs to be in and she is obviously an animal lover.
I will be using her again and again.

Once again the boys were taken good care of by Conni. She has been a blessing for us.....Thanks again Conni
What a great pic! Thanks, Connie. Rosey came home wiped and happy. She could hardly keep her eyes open. She clearly had great fun with Bailey and you. Again, we appreciate your taking such wonderful care of her! See you next time...
Conni is a lovely lady who took fabulous care of our little guy. We were nervous to leave him since he was a rescue dog, but he seemed very happy and fit into their environment perfectly. She sent me a picture of him also, which made me feel more at ease with leaving him. When we are unable to take him with us in the future, I know he will be in good hands.

This lady is super!
Connie is fantastic. Our pooch was happy and safe. Halo is not a small dog, Connies house and yard is step up well to take care of her. It is nice that Halo has a home to stay at with people who really love dogs.
Connie is absolutely wonderful. It is nice to know our big pooch was having a good time with Connie and her two dogs. I expecially like that the dogs can go in and out of the house and enjoyed the nice back yard. The peace of mind and updates was really appreciated.
Conni was a great host. She took on my two boys even thou one was only 4 months old with only 7weeks of basic training. Didn't think they would come home with me when I arrived. Happy dogs !!!!! Thank you so much for taking care of them!!!!!
Conni, thank you for watching Marley this week and making him feel comfortable in your home. Thanks, Lina and Marley
Came how to a tired and happy dog. Connie is a great host!
Rosey had a great time at Connie's house with her new doggie friends. I heard from the friend who picked her up for us that she was happy, well-rested and I believe she learned some new manners! being only 5 months old at the time, this was very good news. We will definitely call her again!
Thanks Connie!
Came back to a happy dog. Connie did a great job!
Conni was great and took the extra effort to ask questions about our pup in advance to make sure he had the best stay possible.
I cannot say enough good things about Conni watching our two Weener dogs! She was accommodating, caring and professional. She kept us updated while we were gone and gave us the sweetest note about them at the end of the visit that showed how well she knew them. Our dogs did not seem stressed when we picked them up, which I think is another sign of good care. Definetly recommend her services. Judy O
Conni was fantastic! This was my first time using DogVacay and I could not be happier with the experience. She is experienced with dogs and was very accommodating for our last minute needs. A+, 5-star for Conni!
Wonderful. Conni gave me a questionaire to complete before Tinkers stay sonthat she knew her habits and idiosyncrancies. She kept me updated and sent photos. I will be happy to have Tinker stay with her again.
