About Ashley

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Check us out on Facebook /doxieandfriendshaven
*Our dogs are our family and they welcome any four legged friend. We have a beautiful home right on the river with a large backyard and enclosed deck. Day time is sleepy time for our dogs but they can roam around and play in the yard as they like and have a doggie door to come in the house if it is chilly or too hot outside.
In the evenings it's play time and walks down to the river and on the trails for a nice stroll are common. We have lots of blankets, pet beds and toys for your pup. We have chickens that the dogs can watch from afar which provides much entertainment. This summer the kids are home and love to play and cuddle with our guests.
Our gates are fully enclosed and 4ft in height, the perimeter is fully checked for security before any visit.
Our family hopes to provide the love and care your four legged children need for a lovely vacation.

Ashley was very nice, and the dogs seemed very happy and well-cared for when they came home.
Ashley took great care of my pup!!! Nice environment.
Ashley has been such a blessing for me and my dog, Pippa. I am currently renovating and adding on to my home and needed a place for Pippa to stay during the months long construction work. We both had to move out of our home and unfortunately Pippa was not able to stay with me. Ashley was willing to keep Pippa for an extended period of time and worked with me on a price as well. I go by for visits every couple of weeks and Ashley is always gracious to welcome me into their home for a visit. Pippa seems to have adapted well to her new environment and Ashley and her husband have been so great to work with Pippa on some of her bad behaviors. The place is beautiful and there is a lot of room for the dogs to run around and play. I am and will always be grateful for Ashley's help during this time. I was afraid I might have to turn Pippa into a shelter because I couldn't find anyone to keep her, but thanks to Ashley, Pippa has a temporary home and will be happy and healthy and be able to come back home when the work on our house is complete.

My dogs definately enjoyed their stay! When we picked them up they were tired out and relaxed! Given the opportunity I would definitely recommend Ashley!
This was our first stay using vacay.com. Ashley made the experience very positive. She welcomed us openly on the meet and greet and addressed everything we needed to know. Our "girls" had a great time, loved the updates and especially the photos. I would recommend her to anyone.

Johnny Cash is not my dog, he is my furry child, and I wouldn't leave him with anyone else but Ashley. She looks after a big piece of my heart and does it with such care, attention and love. Thanks Ashley!
Our dog loves going to Ashley's! She is so great and laid back with all the dogs it makes me feel very comfortable knowing she can calmly handle anything that my mischievous dog might get into. Her house is like a dog resort with a huge back yard, lots of space in the house and TONS of pet beds and toys so there's never any fighting. She was very quick to respond to any questions and keep us updated while we're away. About to book another stay now!

Awesome!!!!
Ashley was a great communicator and very accepting of our very playful, first time boarding Aussiedoodle, Stella.
Sky always loves staying with Ashley!!
As always, Ashley just keeps on coming through - Smokey keeps thinking he's just going to stay here when we get home next time...
Best host ever!!! Smokey LOVES coming here!
Ashley was a very good host.
Ashley was very nice, and I would leave Roscoe with her any time I needed to.
Ashley was great! Listened to the special instruction we gave. Very accommodating! Our dogs loved her and we will be using her service again!
Thank you Ashley and hubby for your sweet care of Oz. He loved the adventures and I appreciate your care during the rainy, dark night. We'll be back!!!
Sky loves that she gets to sleep with Ashley in her bed!!
Skylar loves to stay with Ashley and her family!
THANK YOU! :)
ashley always takes great care of skylar!
Ashley is a wonderful host and we were confident our three pups were loved and well taken care of while we were away. She sent us daily photos of them as relaxed and happy pups. We will definitely be seeing Ashley again the next time we (and our pups) need a vacay!

Always does a great job!
Ashley was great! My fearful fido warmed up fast and by the time he left he leaned in for kisses.
Ashly S was super fantastic! We will definitely be a repeat customer. Wonderful with Buck and excellent ongoing communication with us during his stay. Two thumbs up!!!
We left our newly adopted (2 months with us), very nervous, 3 year old hound/beagle mix with Ashley for 6 nights and we absolutely could not have been happier!! Ali did great at their house - there were other dogs for her to play with and they have lots of outdoor play time and a big play area as well! Ashely sent updates multiple times a day and lots of pictures too! I felt very informed from the meet and greet all the way through pick up time! I am so thankful that Ali had a nice home with a wonderful family to stay with while we were on vacation! Because of her fearfulness I was a nervous wreck about leaving her so soon but she did great and she's actually a little less anxious even back home with us!! Thank you Ashley! I wouldn't hesitate to leave Ali with her again if I needed to!!

Ashley accommodated us for a trip to Orlando for one week. She always gave us an update in the mornings on how things were going. River (Blue Heeler/Cattle Dog mix) seemed very happy!
Ashley was awesome! She gave me an update every morning. Would recommend her to anyone! She is a very responsible and trustworthy sitter! :)
Ashley was fantastic! She texted us with frequent status updates and sent us pictures of our pups, Lexi & Luna. Through her friendly persistence, she was able to gain Lexi & Luna's trust. Her house was like a vacation retreat for dogs. We would definitely consider Ashley and Dog Vacay for our next vacation.

Ashley and her dachashunds took good care of our two babies. Hannah and Marta had a good time playing in the back yard.
We trusted Ashley with the care of our Annie for an extended period of five days, and it worked out great! Ashley was fantastic with the multiple email and sms photo updates, which eased our minds considerably.

Initially, we were concerned about the lack of 24/7 coverage, but Ashley has a great home set-up which accommodates the work-day absence without drama. The fenced back yard is very spacious with a lot of interesting things to explore/watch (trees and river view), and during the day there is plenty to keep them occupied.

Ashley's doxies are a hoot as well, getting along and welcoming new pups/people to the mix. Annie came home with a spring in her step.

We will not hesitate to send Annie on another vacation with Ashley, when the need arises!

Ashley was a great host for our 6 month old puppy while we were away for several days. The home is welcoming and comfortable and Rosie had a good time with Hanky and Dottie, the resident doxies. The text updates and pictures reassured us she was doing great. Ashley responded quickly with emails/texts and answered all questions. I'm sure Rosie will visit Hanky and Dottie again. Dogvacay is our preference rather than the conventional kennels!

As usual Ashley was the perfect host!! Thank you again Ashley!!
There was something reassuring about knowing our puppy would be living with a family instead of at a kennel while we were out of town, and the first time we met Ashley and her clan, we knew we were in great hands! Ashley's love of dogs was very apparent in the easygoing way she interacted with our slightly high-strung dog, and her own pack adopted him right in as a new pack mate. She sent us frequent updates of how things were going in the form of notes and pictures, and it was clear from the very first update that Smokey was having the time of his life. Her pictures were hilarious and showed Smokey fitting right in and just loving life at her house while he interacted with and played with her family and dogs. Ashley was cheerful, personable, adaptable, and someone I would call a friend by the time we picked Smokey up, and not only would we be absolutely delighted to ask her to care for Smokey again, we would absolutely recommend her to anyone! Thanks, Ashley!

Ashley is by far the nicest, most caring person who has taken care of JD. Even with JD's special needs it was not an issue!! She treated JD as if he was her own. I received daily reports from her on how he was doing, and what he was doing. Pictures included! JD will never stay with anyone else as long as Ashley is still hosting!!!!!

Ashley was an excellent host! I received unexpected photos and updates during my dog's stay. She eased my puppys seperation anxiety by tending to her needs. We will definitely use her services in the future.
Can't say enough about how great this experience was, for both me and my Sadie!! Ashley was the perfect host and kept me posted throughout the weekend with photos and messages!!! Her 2 doxies were so good with Sadie!! I will be back for sure!!! Thank you Ashley!!!
