About Colette

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Updated:
My best friend passed away in July. Gosh I cannot explain the empty feeling. He was diagnosed with Lymphoma in late May. We tried chemo but well. I "acquired" Mojo because of Dogvacay! April 2013, a Dogvacay client couldn't care for her 6yr old Great Dane. He was ill with a liver disease and needed a toe amputated. He went everywhere with me: Florida (walks on the beach), Austin to listen to music and San Francisco for a festival . He was a gentle giant and very passive. Cheesy but must have been meant to be. I didn't ever think I could have such a close connection with a canine even after my first dog. But Mojo..he was something amazing. Honestly he rescued me. He has my heart. Even though I was (am) devastated. I was able to get up every day knowing I was going to watch a dog. Otherwise the silence is deafening in my house. As heart wrenching as it is ..life moves on whether I want it to or not. So..I made a difficult decision to try and rescue again. Sad and excited. I am waiting to here if I am approved to rescue another Great Dane!
I hope you can read my love and passion for dogs from my above post. Your dog is a part of your family. I was lucky enough to have my amazing Rottweiler, Zen for 11yrs. He was a loyal companion, friend, confident, listener, and best friend. Looks can be deceiving....he was just a love. He was amazing.. unforgettable. Some say..he was just a dog..but he was so much more than that...even when he would open the fridge and help himself to a snack:) Never thought I would own a dog again as he couldn't be replaced..
I would love the opportunity to take great care of your family member while you are gone. Give you peace of mind, a few photos. I would go for walks in the neighborhood, a little petting and brushing. I would be honored to have the opportunity to watch your dog. Feel free to call or email. We can do a meet and greet just to make sure everyone is comfortable!

Colette was amazing and Archie had an awesome time! I loved getting the update pictures of Archie on vacay, it made me feel he was in a safe fun place! I've already rebooked her for 2 upcoming trips! I would definitely recommend her!
She was fantastic, sent me pictures of my little fat ball of love. Will def use her again next time I leave out of town
Our furry girl, Lucy, had a great time playing with Colette and her pup. We will be hanging out with them again real soon! Lucy was on medication and Colette took care of that for us too. We feel good recommending her !!! Lynda
Colette was great with my two chihuahuas. She made us all feel comfortable right from the start. I received regular updates and didn't worry at all while I was gone. I will definitely use Colette again.
Colette is very reliable. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future. I received pictures and updates while I was away which eases the anxiety of leaving my babies. :)
Worst experience i have ever had, the pet sitter left my home a complete disaster, she let my animals deficate in my home in almost every room. I have photos of how discusting my home was left and video evidence as well. She left no food or water for my rabbit or bird for 4 days, the dogs water bowls where all empty as well, she allowed dogs to chew up my nephews toys and had a "guest" over without permission from me or my family. She allowed hair to build up in the home all over the floors, we left tools and notes out for her to follow and she failed to do so. There was dog vomit , diarrhea and pee all over my carpet, her responce was "you had dog poop and pee already in the home" she did not defend the fact that she didnt feed my critters or give water. This woman had such wonderful reviews i felt as if she can be trusted, i was very wrong. She blames me, telling me i am mistaken, when i have full proof of my home being in such a horrible disarray. All i want is an apology, she had failed to show any remores. Due to this incdient we have to get one room completely deep cleaned (the carpets) 4 rugs have to be professionally cleaned and one rug has to be thrown out due to how bad it has been deficated on. I have never once asked for my money back,(although it would be nice) i am very disapointed and heartbroken for my animals. She has nothing but excuses and fails to communicate further.

Colette was absolutely amazing and took care of my dog as if she was her own dog. I am so thankful that during a really stressful move I had absolutely no worries knowing that she was in very good hands!
Colette is amazing with dogs and adores them all. We felt complete confidence in her care. She is very loving and attentive, making them feeling like they were in their pack, as if they were at home. Thank you Colette!
Colette continues to wow us. Since our pup is getting quite old and having medical issues, Colette has provided him with a safe, nurturing and loving home-away-from-home (we call it puppy camp). Thank you so much again for giving him your love!
Colette watched our 4 dogs for 4 days and believe me, they are quite a bit to handle. Didn't worry about them at all while we we're gone and would definitely have her sit the "kids" in the future!! Thanks Colette!!
Colette was very kind. She made my dog Simon feel at home. I will definitely request her again.
Colette is amazing! I had to find someone last minute, and she came to meet me and my puppy the next morning. I'll be going to Colette first for all of Ronan's housesitting needs from now on. Highly recommended! Thanks Colette :)
Colette was absolutely awesome! Skye was very well taken care of! Thank you!
Colette is wonderful - NED feels so at home at her home -- Thanks for being a great reliable pet sitter!
There aren't enough great things to say about Colette. She is so kind, and my pup came home happy and tired after a day of doggy daycare with her- the perfect combo. I know my dog was very well cared for. I will absolutely be a returning customer!
Colette was amazing!! We would definitely use her again. She was flexible and caring. Thanks for a great experience!
Colette is awesome and I have left my dogs with her 3-4 times. I feel very comfortable with leaving them and my dogs love her!
Colette was great! We felt very comfortable leaving our dogs in her care. She updated and us and sent pictures while we were away. When we returned and picked up our doggies we could tell they were happy and well cared for while we were gone! I would definitely recommend Colette and use her again!

Colette was very accommodating on such short notice over the holidays! We were in desperate need of someone to care for our pup, Percy, while we traveled back home for Christmas -- Colette responded very promptly, set up a meet and greet that night, and was able to care for Percy for nearly a whole week! She sent us photos of him throughout his stay as well. I would definitely recommend Colette to care for your dog! Percy had such a great time and met some new friends :)

Colette was great with Marvin! We were in a real pinch trying to find someone last minute around the holidays and she came to the rescue! Thank you Colette. Marvin has a new friend.
Colette couldn't be better. She's so responsible and my dogs love going to her house!!
Thanks so much!
Collette is amazing. Sending posts and pictures. This was our first time leaving our dog for more than a day and it was a great experience for her and us. I highly recommend Collette.
My four legged kids had a great time at Colettes - she's just wonderful!
Colette and Eric are wonderful to our dogs - they love their home and their special time with them! Thanks so much
This is our second time back with Colette. Our dog is very comfortable with her, and she takes great care of her whenever she visits. No small feat since Huskies can be very picky sometimes, particularly around other dogs. Her big Great Dane Mojo is a big teddy bear though, and our dog loves his company. She's a great sitter and I highly recommend her.

She's wonderful. Professional dependable and sends wonderful photos and updates!!
Colette asked a lot of questions that showed she knows what she's doing. Tanner appeared to be a happy doggie when I picked him up. Colette was very accommodating with pick up and drop off times.
Colette was wonderful. She accommodated multiple changes to our original schedule and took wonderful care of our finicky Husky. Felt very comfortable having her as our sitter and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for the same.
Joe stayed with Collette over the July 4th holiday. As usual, she took very good care of him and he came home a happy dog. Collette is a responsible and caring dog-sitter!!
Collette is the best in town!!!
Colette was so amazing! This was our first experience with DogVacay, and we will be using it anytime we are out of town now thanks to this great first impression. She accepted our last minute reservation request. You can tell she truly loves being around animals and has a special way of connecting with them. She sent regular updates through text and photos showing me my dog cuddling or playing. I felt totally at ease and was even excited for him to be there to relax and have some fun. Thank you Colette!

Colette was so good to our dog Goliath, even though he had some fear issues, Colette knew how to recognize it and work with him. She was very kind to give me updates and pics throughout his 3 day 2 night stay. I am very grateful to have found someone we can trust to care for our pet bcuz sooo many times we wanna go somewhere and get away, we just dont, bcuz who's gonna want to watch our dog who has some fear issues and not good at socializing with people or other pets. She took Goliath in with no hesitations and allowed us to be with our family to celebrate my Son's college graduation in Tucson. We appreciate it with all our heart, thanku Colette!

Another GREAT stay with Collette! My Jack Russell Terrier, Joe, has found a home away from home, when I'm traveling! I couldn't be happier!
My Jack Russell Terrier stayed with Colette and Mojo and our experience and Joe's stay were PERFECT! Colette is a wonderful and responsible caretaker and my Joe fit right in her house. I am very grateful to have found Colette and will be using her anytime I travel!!

We left both our dogs with Colette this time and it went great! I highly recommend Colette!
Colette is so great! She's great with Sage and sends pictures while we're away. I'll use her everytime.
After three nights with Colette and Eric, my dog came back relaxed and happy! Colette sent photos that showed me how comfortable Chaya was at her place, and that eased my mind. Thanks so much to both Colette and Eric for taking good care of my gentle giant!

Great first experience!
Colette is the best! She takes great care of my pets! I will use her again to be sure. Cathy
Collette was awesome, Our dogs just loved her. They looked so happy in the pictures she sent and it felt good to know they were well taken care of.
This was the first time we have left our dog and we could not have made a better choice. I felt very comfortable leaving them in Colette's more than capable hands and, by the look of the adorable pictures she posted, Bubba was quite comfortable with her also! Thank you, Colette, for taking such good care of our newest family member. We will definitely be bringing Bubba over again. See you soon!

Colette is just wonderful and my two "kids" just love her! Thanks again for always being there for us!
Colette was great and Kiptyn had a wonderful time playing with her niece while we were gone. Colette was very loving and affectionate to Kiptyn, the actions of a true dog lover. She was also flexible and accomodating when our plans changed last minute. I would highly recommend Colette to watch your baby :)

My dogs love Colette!!! She is wonderful with dogs of all breeds, all sizes and all ages! Picked them up today and they return to her home on Sunday! She's a life saver!
Colette is amazing!! She is so sweet and kind and will make your pet feel right at home. At first, I was a little apprehensive about leaving my buddy with a sitter for the first time, but I knew right away with Colette that he was in great hands. She sent me tons of photos and updates during my trip, which was great and made me feel so much better about being far away from him. You can tell she is genuinely a dog lover and isn't one of those people who is in it for the money. I would definitely ask Colette to watch him again if I ever go out of town or need a sitter!! =)

My five month old Ned had a wonderful time with Colette - she is great! Thanks again, Cathy
Colette is an amazing host! My senior citizen dog had such great care taken of her and my six month old puppy was finally potty trained while in her care! Can't say enough wonderful things about Colette - Thanks so much Cathy
Colette truly loves dogs and Tully had a true "vacation" given all the attention she gave him. Colette sent me several photos of Tully and generally kept us appraised of how he was doing during his stay. Highly recommend her.
We left our dog with Colette with no notice and she was great about it. We will use her every time we go out of town. We received photos of our dog while away too. She is great.
Family could not watch our two dogs and the thought of leaving them with a stranger was hard. However, after I met Colette and saw how willing she was to accommodate each and every need of our dogs it put my mind at ease. I also had the opportunity to see how she related to dogs she was currently watching. She treated them like they were her own. The fact that she has no other animals and was able to devote all of her time to our little girls was also a huge plus! Additionally, knowing they would not be left alone all day, because she works from home, was another benefit. She also stayed in contact throughout our long trip, which was comforting. We will be using Colette again:)

Colette is an amazing lady who took such wonderful care of our two dogs. We have a 6-month old Rotweiller male puppy and a 7-year old female miniature Italian Greyhound. Colette has taken care of probably every breed of dog and you can see how much she truly enjoys their love and company. We were very particular in the kind of care we expected for our two "babies" and she more than met our expectations. She was very good at making certain our Rottie continued adhering to his puppy training and she replaced his leash when he chewed through it. He is a very strong boy and she was up for all of his challenges. We especially loved receiving her updates on how our dogs were and she included pictures. We definitely plan on asking Colette to take care of our Cesar and Lily in the near future.

Colette is very sweet and dependable. She made Kesha feel right at home and sent me pictures while she kept her to keep my mind at ease. Highly recommend!
Thank you Colette. I have only good things to say. Colette was very responsive from the time I set up a meet and greet to sending me photos of Besito during his stay. She takes this responsibility very seriously. I will definitely use her services again. Thank you again.

Colette was awesome!!! Our "kids" couldn't have been in better hands. We received several pictures from her throughout our trip... we never worried about them at all; knowing they were being so well cared for. We feel so lucky to have found her through DogVacay.

I highly recommend Colette! We just adopted a new puppy and had to go out of town. Our dog is still a puppy and we were still in the process of house breaking her. Colette was so great with Sage that she came back to us better trained than she had started. We'll definitely leave our dog with Colette again! Thank you Colette!
