About Denise

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We have a spacious private house with a big backyard. It is not fenced in at the moment, but your pup will have fun playing and running around on a leash. I do like to take daily walks (3-4 times a day).
Our schedules have changed and your pup would be unsupervised for 2-4 hours daily. I work 5 minutes away from home and I constantly check in during the day. No pup will be left together unsupervised.
We send daily pictures and videos to put petparents minds at ease.
We will spoil your pet like if they were part of our family.
**We are also accomodating to any feline friends that need boarding.**

Denise was very attentive from start to finish from sending daily videos/puc updates to text messages always keeping me informed on hiw Puchy was doing. This is the first time I have used DoggyVaca but I am glad I did or else I wouldn't have been blessed by having Denise Dog sit. I highly recommend her and will be using her in the future when needed. Thank you Denise for taking care of Puchy. :)

Denise is great! She kept us updated with pictures and videos of our dog. Denise is also very prompt to respond to questions.
Fantastic!
Jasper and Finnegan (under 15 pounds each) were happy and relaxed when they came home from their vacay with Denise. (A previous stay at a boarding kennel had resulted in frantic nervous behavior and lack of appetite for days after they got home.) But this in-home visit with Denise and her family was full of love and attention. I received several notes, videos and photos daily. Finnegan was on antibiotics when he arrived (for a tooth) and Denise made sure he received his meds as needed. My boys are even kinder to their feline siblings now after having fearless kitties to mix with at Denise's. I highly recommend Denise R's care for your dog's next vacay. We'll have Jasper and Finnegan stay with her again!

This was my first time working with Denise. It was a great experience.
Denise was amazing! A true animal lover who really cares. I was nervous to try this out at first but so happy that I did! Its a much better experience for the pet than a kennel would ever be. My dog (Scarlett) had such a fun time. Will definitely book with Denise again when im travelling.

Denise is awesome. If you want to have a safe, secure place for your dog, this is it!!!
From the first meet and greet to picking up Logan, I felt confident that Logan would be safe and well cared for. I finally enjoyed a worry free vacation. I was surprised with daily videos and pictures of Logan enjoying his new friends company, Thank you, Denise and Kevin !!!

Excellent place to leave our dog. Will definitely go to Denise again. Very nice and friendly environment for animals.
Denise and her husband were wonderful! They look our two dogs on short notice. After 3 days, the dogs came home to us nice and tired. They got along great with the in-house dogs, and we got constant updates and pictures from Denise.
Denise and her husband Kevin were wonderful!! Our little pup could not have been happier, he hardly wanted to leave! Very responsive, flexible and magnificently caring. They made sure to send video and picture updates which were very much appreciated and made my day :)

dogs had a great time, she always kept us informed with videos and photos during their stay.
Denise and family were wonderful to our dog - they treated him like one of their own and he was very happy there. Would definitely stay again with Denise.
Denise was amazing! She sent pictures, videos, and text updates on a daily basis, and made me feel extremely comfortable about leaving my pup with someone I didn't know. This was my first time using the site, and I had a wonderful experience. Denise spoke to me on the phone before I booked and answered every neurotic question I had. When my train was delayed coming back home, she offered to keep Ruca for an extra night free of charge. Amazing experience and such a sweet person. Would definitely use her again!

Denise was amazing with my dog. We had never left the dog with anyone or been away before and she truly gave him a great experience. She knew how to introduce him to her cat and dog as well as other people. I was so embarrassed by how worried I was but she always put me at ease. She taught me so much. I was out of the country for more than a month and Denise made sure I had photos and videos constantly. She even was available through chat for updates. I am so grateful I found her.

From the first meet and greet until the day I picked up my dog, Denise put me at ease. Her experience was evident immediately. She gave me suggestions and knew exactly how to introduce my dog to her home and dog. She was very welcoming and patient with my mother who was also in contact " checking in " on her grand dog.

Denise and her husband took care of tank with the same loving approach as myself and my husband. She sent use daily pics and videos which was really fantastic. I didn't miss him as much if she didn't sent them. Thanks again Denise, Jami Cleary
Pebbles had an amazing time. She had two more dogs and two cats to play with. They all got along superbly. We got video and picture updates continuously. This was an amazing vacay for Pebbles and we highly recommend Denise.
Denise and Kevin were awesome and I had complete peace of mind leaving my 6 month old puppy with them. They accommodated my early drop off times and kept me updated all day with photos and videos. Will definitely be using them again.
They were great to my beagle Toby. He loves big dogs so that was a big plus.
So glad I found Denise on DogVacay. She took great care of Atlas!
Our very skittish rescue dog felt right at home with Denise and her family. We just had our 4th visit and Cali had a great time. They kept her busy and active and sent us many adorable photos of Cali playing, interacting with the other dogs and looking very happy. Denise has always gone out of her way to accommodate our schedule. I didn't worry a bit!!! We will definitely repeat our visit with Denise.

Denise and her husband are quite honestly THE BEST hosts we have ever had. Our pups are always so happy to vacation with them and from the pictures and videos we receive, they always seem to be having a blast. I can always rest assured that my pups are in great hands and having a great time as well with Denise.

They where great & very flexible with my crazy sechdule. Bella had a great time! Thank you!
Wonderful experience every time! Denise and Kevin are wonderful and accommodating! Rosie has a great time every visit, and I love all the photos of my happy puppy!
We had a great experience with Denise and Kevin, they were very accommodating with drop off and pick up times and Denise sent lots of pictures and videos so we felt very at ease. Everything went great and our dog had a wonderful 5 day stay. I highly recommend Denise and Kevin and cannot thank them enough.

Having my (very energetic) pup Nala stay with Denise was a great experience. We would get videos and pics of Nala playing with Onyx multiple times a day and they always looked like they were having a blast. Denise was also very flexible with pick-up and drop off times which made things a lot easier. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone that would like their pup to be well taken care of while they're away.

Very happy puppy.
Awesome, happy puppy
Happy puppy
My giant 200 lb dog luvs them!
Awesome
Denise is awesome, puppy is happy there..
My dogs always have a 5-star experience with Denise and her husband. So much so, that my pitbull didn't want to leave with me after his last vacay! I am delighted to drop them off knowing they will have a great time with awesome caretakers. You know your pet sitters are awesome if your pups are sad to leave....Denise is simply the best

Great visit, as always. We have been 100% pleased with Lucy's stays with Denise, she loves staying there and always comes home happy and refreshed (stays at kennels always left her exhausted).
I was very happy with the whole process using Denise and the website. She quickly responded to my emails. We were able to arrange a meet n' greet which helped me feel better about my decision (first time using this website). She sent daily pictures and videos and my pup seemed happy when I picked her up. I would definitely recommend Denise and plan on contacting her again in the future.

Denise has many individuals and dogs in the house. If your dog has a friendly, outgoing personality, this means TONS of fun and amazingness and attention. If your dog is not outgoing and friendly, maybe they would like a quieter atmosphere.
I had a great experience with Denise & Kevin. They were responsive, sent photos and updates about Toby, and made the process very easy. We will absolutely use them again!
As first time users, Denise and her husband ensured that our experience went smoothly. They took great care of our puppy and sent us plenty of pics and video updates. We will definately be using Denise's services again.
Denise is always great, Lucy is always excited when we get there, and always comes home happy!
This was an awesome experience from the meet and greet all the way till pick up. Denise posted daily pics and a few videos which helped to put our minds at ease. I would recommend Denise to anyone who wants their four legged family members to be safe and well cared for. I would definitely choose Denise again in the future.

This was our second stay with Denise and her husband. Bella Bear & my Cane Corso, had a wonderful time! They where extremely flexible and I was kept up to date with pictures and video's of her playing which really put my mind at ease! I would definitely recommend them to any loving pet owner!

Denise, as usual, was tremendous!
- Very responsive and flexible- responds within a minute and accommodates to your schedule - Daily updates with pics sent - My dog was worn out everyday playing with Onyx, it's almost like a vacation for him - Will be coming back
excellent ABLE TO COMMUNICATE THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON HOW THE PET IS. VERY KIND AND CARING
Denise and her husband take such great care of my pups. We are repeat boarders and my dogs literally leap out of the car when they smell they are near her house. She keeps them well fed and they never come home scratched up or hurt. My big pitbull Dash loves playing with their dog Onyx, too.

Perfect visit, as always. Lucy was happy when picked up, and not crazy stressed the way she used to be after kennel stays.
Teddy is not going back.
Teddy was very well trained and easy going. We left Teddy with Denise R for two weeks. Once back home, he started urinating and defecating everywhere including in his own crate. Hi had lost a considerable amount of weight and I was given a new harness because I was told he had chewed it. Teddy had not done that for a very long time. Teddy was also missing the anti-bug collar.
We can't know what happened there but the outcome speaks by itself.

Denise was wonderful. Cocoa had a great time playing with her family and other puppies; I almost think she was sad to come home. They were accommodating and flexible and sent photos and videos frequently, which was great since I was away for two weeks. Thank you!

Denise and her husband took excellent care of Bella and sent me photos daily to put my mind at ease! I could tell she felt right at home and quickly made friends with the other animals in the home. I would certainly use them again.
Lucky came back happy. Denis sent pics and updates she made me feel comfotable during my vacation.
Denise replied to my request with in an hour. Denise and Kevin were great dog sitters. She took the time to ensure my dogs and het dog got along. She sent me several pictures throughout the time they were with her. When I picked them up they were playing.

I would definitely recommend Denise if you need a dog sitter.

I am extremely happy that I found Denise and Kevin to sit for my puppy Sam - I had no worries after receiving the very first photo of how Sam was adjusting. I will definitely recommend them and board my puppy again with them.
Thanks again Denise and Kevin!

I am so happy that I found Denise. She really loves taking care of the dogs in her charge. She is firm but kind with each dog. Bubba loves playing with Denise's dog, Onyx. He enjoys her cats as well! I felt safe leaving Bubba with her. It was a great experience for both of us!

Denise and her husband Kevin are very nice. My puppy, Luca, seemed to be really happy the time he stayed there. I was running late for picking up Luca due to the traffic jam, and Kevin was totally fine with that. He also sent me pictures of Luca while I was away. I really need to thank them for taking care of Luca and would strongly recommend them.

Loved all the photo's Denise shared with us throughout Sunny's stay! We could tell that Sunny felt right at home and at her age that is so important to us. We will definitely board our beloved malamute with her in the future. Thanks, Denise for taking such good care of our girl!

sent picture updates every day, extremely kind and caring people - will definitely use them again!
We were worried at first because our dog had not been socialized much with other dogs but our hosts had no issues and were able to help in that respect. We appreciated all of their help and flexibility and will definitely use them again.
We would highly rate Denise for dogsitting. We saw photos of Franky, our dog while we were away which was comforting to know that he was never alone, and that he had playmates which was so important to him. He even had a bath on the hot days that he was visiting. It was good to know that he was well taken care of when we were away. James & Karen

Very friendly, Lucy obviously had a lot of fun with other dogs there. Sent nice pics! Recommended
Denise was an amazing host! She responded very promptly and was flexible with scheduling a meet-and-greet and overnight within a few days from our initial contact. Especially since I have two rescue dogs, and one who is quite nervous, I didn't know how they would do in someone else's care. I am happy to report the dogs did great, Denise was so attentive and loving. She even bought them their own bones! She shared photos updates throughout their vacay, I would definitely go back to Denise next time I am out of town!

We could not be any more happier with the choice we made with leaving Sky with our host Denise. Truly felt we left Sky with a member of our family as Denise showed Sky so much love. Really enjoyed the pics that were sent throughout the day showing us what Sky was up too. I can tell Sky had a great time. This was our first time using Dogvacay and it could not have gone any better. Truly thankful for Denise and the care she showed Sky.

Sky will definitely be back in the future. I know she will be excited when we pull up for her next visit.

Again thank you so much Denise for looking after Sky for us.
