About Donna

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
40 YEARS CARING FOR PETS (Birds, Cats, Dogs)

Hi. I'm Teddy, Donna's dog. I have had great visitors since my mom started doing DogVacay - Duke, Sadie, Bentley, Sparky, Coco, Deuce, Huck, Shay Shay and Winnie. Mom also went to stay with Lacey, Belle, Tootie and Sparky at their house. Now, it's your turn. My house is great! It is a fully fenced, wooded acre so you can run, run, run. It has that really lived-in feel that dogs love. Mom is a very responsible lady, who has cared for birds, cats, and dogs all her life. She loves all animals (she even takes a misplaced bug outside to let it go)! She is home 24/7, so we are seldom left alone. I also have a great dad, Jack, who helps with everything around here. Rosie, my big sis, is a shy, old Chihuahua.

There are lots of fun things to do here. I love to chase the squirrels and birds, take a drink from the frog pond, and run in the woods. I have a pet pool, toys, and healthy, natural, treats. Our street is a pretty cul-de-sac and lots of people walk dogs here. Rosie and I want friendly, non-aggressive dogs to play with.

We sleep in the kitchen/laundry room area. There's a dog door and a ramp that we use to go out to the yard. We have three cool cats that stay in the rest of the house. We have extra blankets, so you don't have to bring one. Mom will put medicine (yuck!) in your food or water if you need it. She used to be a medical assistant.

Mom loves to take pics of me and the other pets, and she will also take your picture and send it to your family to let them know you are fine and having fun. Mom stays up late, so you can contact her at any time.

Hope you call soon! I'll run out to the gate to meet you!

IMPORTANT* Teddy is not neutered. Female dogs must be spayed.
*I can take two dogs from the same family as long as they are both gentle players with my dogs and each other. When Teddy meets your dog, he will growl and act out, but he is just establishing his territory. In a short time, he will be best buddies with your dog and follow him/her everywhere.

Donna was fantastic! We met up ahead of time, and she really took the time to get to know my dogs and to ensure that they'd have a happy and safe stay at her home. She listened to my concerns and made sure she knew how to best take care of them. Her house and massive yard are clean, well-kept, and perfect for pets. While we were out of town, Donna sent us texts with photos and video of the dogs having fun, so we never had to worry. I'd recommend Donna in a heartbeat!

Donna was great! She had plenty of room for my dog to run around and the other pups to play with! She took great care of Huck and sent me lots of great pictures while I was gone!
Our dog spent a night at Donna's kennel and was well cared for and had a fine time with Donna and her cute dog, Teddy. We enthusiastically recommend Donna. Her kennel / house includes a securely fenced yard where the dogs can run and play in safety. I would not hesitate to board our dog with Donna again in the future.

This DogVacay is top notch! Donna and her hubbie were very attentive to Sparky and tuned in to our concerns about his separation anxiety behaviors. They went above and beyond to make him feel at home and secure. He was so relaxed when we picked him up! We highly recommend.

Our pup Duke had the best time staying with Donna and her pups while we were in town for a wedding. She was very thorough in ensuring that she had all info necessary to make Duke's stay a great one. We received regular photo updates and messages letting us know how he was doing. He had tons of room to play outside as well as a nice area to stay and rest inside. We highly recommend!
