About Carol

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! I'm an avid pet lover and animal activist. I write a column about animal welfare in a monthly print magazine, lobby on capital hill for animal related legislation, have adopted many rescued pets, and use social marketing to highlight current animal issues and animals in need of adoption. Needless to say, I love animals!

I can host any species of animal you have (cats, horses and farm animals I would pay visits in their homes). I have owned and trained horses, dogs and birds for over 30 years-though I'm not a licensed trainer and I have rescued-rehabilitated-released several wild animals-also unofficially (soon to be officially).

I have had 5 cats, 8 dogs, 12 birds (two were rescued Magpies that I rehabilitated and returned to the wild), 4 horses, chickens, 2 rats, 4 guinea pigs, 3 rabbits, lizards, Tarantulas and more at any given time during my life (now only one sweet 11 year old dog and one bird high in a cage). I can deal with any animal, even those with health or behavioral issues as long as they are sweet to my old girl.

I am also able to help with special needs animals; having a senior pug in diapers for two years, unable to go up/down stairs and with a myriad of health issues taught me some helpful skills. I also adopted a senior yellow lab who was blind, deaf, arthritic and senile when she was abandoned in her old days, she flourished with me until she passed away at the grand old age of 16. I have a great deal of compassion for these old sweeties.

There would be lot's of cuddles, treats, heart to heart discussions & some unofficial training (if desired).

Lastly, I want you to know that dog sitting is not my career, I do it because I love to be around animals. Thank you for finding me, I'm so excited to meet your furry-or scaly-or feathered pal!

Lucy's recent stay with Carol was wonderful. The thoughtfulness we experienced by receiving daily photo's about Lucy's activities was reassuring beyond words! We are so happy to have found Carol through Vacay.
If I could give more stars for Carol, I would. She had Brooklyn for 2 nights in SLC and he had a wonderful time. She's a super nice and warm person, and someone who has a real affinity for dogs. Can't recommend her highly enough.
Carol is amazing--it is obvious our pup loved her, and we would definitely book with her again!
I am an incredibly picky, overprotective dog dad and was hesitant to drop my husky off with anyone. Despite my fears, my dog was at home, well taken care of and seemed to mesh into being one of the family very quickly! Carol took amazing care of him, provided regular updates and was able to bond with him while we were gone - he was like one of the pack when I came to pick again! I will definitely be going back to Carol if I have any future trips where the pup has to stay home. I don't know if I'd trust my pup to anyone else! Highly recommended :)
Our four-month old black lab puppy, Clery, had a lovely stay with Carol! Carol was very accommodating of my last minute booking request -- even fitting in a meet and greet on very short notice. Clery seemed very happy and comfortable with her. While I was away, Carol sent updates of how Clery was doing -- even attaching a few adorable pictures! I highly recommend Carol as a pet sitter!
Carol was perfectly lovely and took Shiloh in on at last minute reservation. We will definitely call again.
Carol took care of my 9 yo dog for 10 days while I was away on a business trip. She was wonderful; extremely responsive and assuring. She was great handling my sweet, but sometimes fearful pup, who is newly adopted. She was calm and confident, and willing to work with her. I could tell Evy was immediately comfortable with her and her family. Can't thank her enough for her care, and would gladly leave Evy with Carol again.
Perfect stay!
Carol is amazing! Our dog was so happy with this situation and Carol was so responsive, caring and just wonderful! We would happily send our pup back to stay with her and her lovely girl gang!
Carol and her family are so wonderful with animals. She is extremely experienced and so very caring. Carol even gave me tips on how to care for my dog and how to keep him trained! We feel very lucky to have found her and will certainly be using her again!
