About Carolyn

I am Permitted thru Pinellas County to Board Dogs, all persons Boarding animals should have a permit. Please be advised that all dogs need to be updated on all shots. I will need a copy of vet information. Per the County.

I have been taking care of Dogs for over 20 + years, I was a dog breeder when I lived in Ohio (Husky).I love the dogs that I care for as if they were my own. Once you walk into my home you will feel the love, and then you can relax and enjoy your time away.

My little girl loves to have play mates and I love having my house filled with loving pet's.

I walk the dog's twice a day for a good 40-60 min. I live in a very dog friendly Neighborhood that has sidewalks every where you go. We have lots of play time in the house as well

If needed my house can separated into to 3 different areas, (only if needed).

I have a FENCED IN AREA where they can play and go potty.

Don't put your dog in the Dog House bring them to The Greathouse.

Carolyn was so wonderful! I had never left my dogs with anyone before. I cried the whole way to her house. However, I had nothing to worry about. She was kind and well prepared. She gave my dog medicine when she needed it and they got lots of outside play time. She sent me pictures and videos so that I could see how well they were doing. I will totally use her again. Very satisfied!

We knew Caroline was the one to watch our pup after just a few minutes with her at the meet and greet. We were gone for 8 days and she kept us updated every day on how he was doing with pictures, texts, and videos. He seemed very happy and at home with her and the other dogs. His stay there was great and we will definitely use again!

You'll never know how your pet's stay is unless you are a fly on the wall. I believe and hope that Carolyn loves dogs and does a good job taking care of the dogs that she is responsible for. I will take my dog back to her.
My pup had a great time and was very well cared for during his stay.
Carolyn was amazing and took very good care of our puppy! We were a little nervous at first, but Carolyn made our puppy feel right at home. When we picked our puppy up, we could tell that she had a great time with Carolyn and the other dogs that she was looking after as well. We will definitely utilize Carolyn as a doggy sitter in the future! Thank you Carolyn :) :) :)

My dog is an old dog that needs special care. When I picked her up she was happy and obviously well cared for.
Excellent host, really friendly and made my dog feel right at home. Will definitely request her again!
Our first time using Dogvacay and Carolyn put our minds at ease when we left Axel.
Carolyn was great and was able to fit my dog in when I really needed a dog sitter for my weekend trip and she was also able to take care of him an extra day when I missed my flight back. She had other dogs there for Cooper to play with which made him really happy and she was really sweet to Cooper. Cooper looked like he was having a great time from the videos and pics she sent when I asked how he was doing.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of Jasper. He always enjoys his visits. Especially since you spoil him and let him steal all the dog beds.
Carolyn helped to get me out of a last minute dogsitting jam, by taking in my dog for a weekend. She was very careful to make sure that my dog got along with the other dogs she was housing, and was able to separate her from those that my cause her any anxiety. She came home a happy and tired pup, so I know she was cared for extremely well. Thanks so much for your help and care for my furry friend.

Carolyn was wonderful as a dog sitter for our golden doodle, Lexi. From the moment we met her, she was very warm and loving and Lexi immediately was comfortable with her. When we picked Lexi up, she was happy and seem to have had a great time. I highly recommend Carolyn for dog sitting!

Carolyn did a great job taking care of my dog overnight. It was the first time he had ever been in a boarding situation and I felt very comfortable leaving him with her..I will definitely be leaving him with her again.
So impressed!! This was our first foray into the world of DogVacay.
Carolyn is just the nicest person. Her home is completely dog friendly..the sleeping areas/beds offered looked appealing enough for us to climb into for a nap (getting through the first days of our young lab puppy Bear,..sooo tired). We received pics, video's & txt updates daily..very grateful for that as our puppy is so young & our old girl Bella was feeling a little jealous..a little put out. Carolyn separated them for sleeping but brought them back together for socialization along with her own dog, Jasmine. In fact I think Jasmine was Bears' 1st crush..so cute together. I would highly recommend Carolyn..& will definitely be using her services again

Buffet seemed very comfortable with her and had friends to play with.
Carolyn did SO great with my dog! I am very protective and she did a great job of making me feel comfortable with leaving him with her. She sent me pictures throughout the weekend including updates with how he was doing. I definitely recommend her and I will be using her whenever I go out of town. When I went to pick my dog up he seemed so comfortable with Carolyn! I was SO happy with Carolyn and the service she provided.

Being new to the State of Fl, we are so grateful to have found Carolyn to care for our 6yr old Havanese and 13 mo old Goldendoodle. When we met Carolyn at the meet and greet I new I could trust her with Stella and Lilee. She kept in touch and sent pictures everyday. We'll definitely be repeat customers.

Carolyn is great with my two pups. It is obvious that she puts everything into making their stay with her a home-from-home experience. The result is that Alfie and Fergus go crazy to get out of the car and run up to her door whenever I pull up outside Carolyn's house. They love her as much as she loves them.

Our six month old schnauzer puppy Max stayed a whole week with Carolyn. We had never left him with anyone but had made vacation plans in a no-pet condo prior to Max joining the family. From my first contact with Carolyn and my anxiety-laden phone call, to our delightful meet-and-greet, and throughout Max's stay, Carolyn was gracious, comforting and professional. I highly recommend Carolyn as someone who will treat your dog well -- as evidenced by my dog's affection for her and her dog Jasmine, and we would not hesitate to request a stay with her again -- with our fingers crossed that she's available.

Carolyn took care of my two Shelties and my "high-energy" 1 year old Chocolate Lab....at the same time! It made my vacation better to see the pictures that Carolyn posted. I highly recommend Carolyn for taking care of your loved four-legged family members when you can't take them with you.

We loved Carolyn, she took great can of our crazy dog Penny Lol! She was wonderful with her, and we would gladly use her again. Sharon & Rob
This was the first time that I had been away from my two dogs; in fact, we had only had our second dog for 3 months.As soon as we met Carolyn for the 'meet and greet', I knew that we could trust her with them. She was very reassuring, and she wanted to know if there were anything that she needed to know about the dogs, and their routines. We travelled overseas with the knowledge that we could fully trust Carolyn.
We received updates and photos, and prompt responses if we enquired after my pups. It was obvious that they were made to feel at home with her. In fact, when we returned to collect our pups, we could see that they were acting as if they were staying with a family member. They were in no rush to leave.
Carolyn is now my first port of call.

Carolyn was amazing with my dog!! I will no longer take my pup to the kennel. She gives so much attention to my dog and sent pictures of how she was doing. We have so far booked with her for a overnight stay and daycare. Both experiences have been great. I am delighted to have found someone in the st pete area that will treat my dog the way I treat her. I totally recommend her to anyone looking for a dog sitter!!

Carolyn was great. She took in my four poodles, including my 17 year old senior! They all seemed to have a good time with her. I would not hesitate to use her again.
This was our first experience with DogVacay and our pup's first experience staying in a private home. Having the "first" with Carolyn G was pawsome! We liked the way Carolyn talked to Lucy when we went for the meet and greet and she made sure Lucy felt at home during her stay. She asked all the right questions about Lucy and her habits. The house is set up well for extra dog guests, is clean, and Jasmine, resident dog, was very friendly. Lucy seemed at home from the start. Carolyn was very accommodating with allowing Lucy to follow her home schedule for food, walks, play. The dog walks she received and the shaded fenced in yard was perfect. We received pictures of Lucy's stay several times during the five days which helped us know that Lucy was okay. It is apparent that Carolyn knows dogs and loves dogs in the way she managed Lucy's visit. We will certainly use Carolyn G again in the future.

We are so greatful to Carolyn for watching our chocolate lab. She is a genuine dog lover and was great with all of our dog's special needs. Carolyn was wonderful in working with our schedule as we had to arrive late at night to pick up our dog. I would definitely recommend her!

This is my second time leaving Grace with Carolyn and on both occasions, I have been very happy with Carolyn's care of Grace. Thank you Carolyn!
Wonderful. Laid back yet professional and thorough. Highly recommended.
Our pups have stayed w/ Carolyn twice now. She has great accomodations for them and we are glad that she walks them - as that is what they are usedto at home. She is engaged w/ the pups and they are happy and healthy when we return. Her own little dog is equally accomodating. My big dog was very interested in trying to fit himself into her little doggie bed, and her dog had no ealousy.
We highly recommend Carolyn and her little pup, but I'll probably regret it as she'll get lots more clients.

Carolyn is such a gracious host and dog-lover that my husky was able to feel at home instantly. During Luna's stay, Carolyn was very easy to reach and really put me at ease about leaving my dog on her first overnight stay (we even received some pictures of Luna having a wonderful time). She shared with me her history of raising huskies and was extremely knowledgeable about dog care. There was plenty of space for a husky to roam about, which can be quite necessary for a dog with such energy. When I picked Luna up I could tell she had been well cared for and had bonded with Carolyn's friendly dog Jasmine. I am so happy with my experience that I will definitely be leaving Luna with her again in the future.

Carolyn, along with Jasmine, take wonderful care of Lewis, and as an added bonus he gets to play with her dog and others for a completely dog-centered vacation for himself. He comes home a well adjusted dog. So happy with finding Carolyn.
Carolyn was great with my dog. I was very anxious about leaving my dog and she made me feel very comfortable leaving him with her. She sent me text updates along with pictures. She took him for daily walks and even let him sleep in her bed! Lefty was very comfortable in her home. I would definitely use Carolyn again and I would recommend her to my friends.

Being first time puppy owners, we were apprehensive about leaving our 7 month old puppy, Harley. We met with Carolyn prior to leaving Harley and felt very comfortable leaving our puppy with her. She loved and took care of our puppy for 9 days and when we picked her up, she was happy to see us and seemed very happy with Carolyn. When we took her home, she fell right back into her routine. I would definitely leave her next time in Carolyn's care as we were very pleased and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for someone to take care of their dogs!

Carolyn did a great job with our very old beagle who we left in her care. She was warm and friendly and Smokey seemed at ease as soon as she came in the door. I would not hesitate to use her in the future.
