About Dana

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
• Is your beloved pup nervous toward other dogs or people?
• Would you like to take him/her for a walk but dread the inevitable confrontation with any dog nearby?
• Do you have a pup no other dog walkers will attempt to take?
• Does your pup have issues with new people, other pets and behaving on leash?
• Does you pup get refused due to the breed/size?
• Are you looking for a calm, safe place for your pup to stay while you're out of town?

I have been taking care of dogs all of my life. I like to think that my family and I don't offer just a boarding service, but a vacation time to our furry friend. If we go on vacation they can too!! I am a pet lover, I like them all in color, shapes and personalities.

Over the past 12 years, I have been highly active in rescue. I volunteer mostly in "power breed" rescue and rehabilitation. Doing so I have learned much about myself but more about dogs. We know how hard it is to find a place you know will have complete control over any situation that may arise. I believe in positive reinforcement training for dogs of all behavioural levels. We welcome dogs with issues from fear, aggression, difficult dogs to walk, xlarge breeds, pack walks, and of course balanced dogs too! .

We currently have 1 Chihuahua(Chicken) as well as a Shepard/collie mix(Lucy) and a pitty mix(Hank). Due to our Lucy being from the reserve, she needs proper introductions to people. Hank needs proper introduction to dogs as he gets a little too exited at first. Our pups as well as visitors get at least two walks per day(weather permitting).

I suggest a meet n greet prior to bookings. We want everyone to know what is expected and more importantly your family member to feel as safe and comfortable as possible. That being said we do accept last minute reservations as well.

Please check my calendar, and if we are available for your dates, tell me all about your pup and ask any questions you have.

I Offer:

Dog boarding which includes walks, socialization treadmill training, structured play time, and of course snuggles.

Pictures/ video updates throughout vacay.

Access to a 24/hr vet clinic.

Flexible booking arrangements.

No limitations on size or breed.

Discounts on multiple dogs.

Discounts available for long term stays.

Pick ups and Drop offs.

Dana is awesome! We have happily been boarding our small dog with her for many years. He always enjoys his visits and is treated like part of the family. We never need to worry about our pups well being when we are away. Dana is great with dogs of all shapes and sizes

We feel very comfortable and confident leaving our pup with Dana. She clearly knows and loves dogs!
Leaving Parker with Dana and Graham was the best decision I could have made. It was last minute and they excepted Parker into their home with open arms. I received pictures and videos which were great to see, and I can say that he settled in very well. I'm very particular where Parker goes, and I wouldn't hesitate having him stay there again. I can't thank you enough.

We've used Dana twice now and are very happy to have found her. Snickers always has a great time and loves playing with the girls. She responds very quickly and has been able to help us out on short notice.
"It's all about the dogs" this is Dana's belief and it shows! From the very first meeting I was put at ease leaving my precious baby with them for almost a whole month! Even though Freyja has some behavioural issues, Dana and Graham knew exactly how to handle them and she quickly became part of the pack and settled in very nicely. I have found the only place I will ever need to use when I need to travel on business again!

Dogvacay with Dana's family provided a superior experience compared to boarding at a kennel. Thank you.
Excellent! Very accommodating with timing. Sent updates throughout the vaca. Dog was happy afterwards. I really like their set up at home - very experienced. Would for sure leave our dog with Dana again.
Awesome job taking care of Lucky while I was away. She sent video and picture of Lucky and he was very happy. Also very accommodating. I will be booking again the next time I am out of town.
Dana was so great with our terrier Reba, Reba can be really nervous and took to Dana almost immediately which speaks to how Dana deals with dogs. I would definitely recommend Dana and her husband to anyone looking for a sitter and will be using her services again. It was lovely to get a photo and video update even though we only left Reba there for 2 days, a lovely reminder that all is well with your pooch.

Our Chihuahua-x had an amazing stay with Dana. From start to end, Dana provided the utmost in care and was a pleasure to communicate with. We received video updates of our fur-ball, happy with her human and canine companions. Definitely recommend to others.

He loves to go&I hope she can always take him-because I dont worry for a moment about my little trouble maker♡J

Dana and her pack were a wonderful fit for our Chico. Chikken&Serby are his size and they welcomed him. I was hesitant of the mix of bigger breeds at firs-but there was no problem at all. Updates videos&pics kept me at ease& I could see how much fun he was having there. I never worried about him-which was a surprise even for me! We will definitly use Dana again. She truly has a great energy and control over the pack-yet it feels easy going at the same time. Chico misses his new friends& we will hv doggy day dates before another holiday. So so happy. J&T

Dana was great, she is clearly a dog lover and it is obvious immediately that she will treat your dog as her own. Chase had so much fun I wasn't sure he would want to come home...lol. Any time she is available, we would definitely want her to take care of Chase in the future. Between the regular updates and her willingness to keep chase active and engaged most of the day there is really no other choice to make. If you are considering Dana, I define Roy have no problem recommending her!

Dana was amazing! She did everything she could to make us feel comfortable, and sent us updates on our dogs. Both dogs came home happy, healthy and very tired!
Dana was amazing! This was one of the first time's that I left Bailey with someone else when I was away from town so I was a little hesitant on how she would be with someone else. Dana put my mind at ease during our first meet and greet and was very easy going. While I was away Dana sent me updates on Bailey and how she was doing as well as pictures and videos that made my day! She was amazing and Bailey didn't want to leave when I came to pick her up. Thank you again Dana for making Bailey's first time away from home so easy. i would definitely recommend Dana to anyone to take care of their beloved fur babies :-)

My family and I are so grateful that Dana is willing and able to work with our German Shepherd. We brought home a happy dog!
This is the first time we have boarded the pugs or had them stay with someone where they came back looking just as good if not better than when we dropped them off. Anyone who knows pugs knows they gain weight really easily. They were happy and so are we.

I had my dog care plans fall through on NYE and she was awesome! came and picked them up sent updates. Will use again.
Dana is great! We enjoyed our long weekend vacation knowing that our little boy is enjoying his vacay as well. Dana sent us videos of Chrisper playing with her Chicken and the other dogs. Chrisper is a difficult dog (always whining and barking excessively) but we were surprised that Dana was able to handle him. I'm sure Chrisper would love to come back and play with Chicken. Thanks, Dana!

Caspar is always exhausted and happy when he comes back from Dana's. She is the absolute best with dogs!
Dana is great with Caspar. We can tell he always has a good time when he stays with her. She is usually available at short notice (I have been able to make a booking a few days in advance of the stay).
Dana is very accommodating and great with dogs! Caspar came home happy and exhausted. :-)
