About Dana

3 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi!

I'm in the field of HR, but on the side, I love to take care of dogs and cats! I grew up with pets and regularly volunteer at an animal shelter through HART and Lost Dog & Cat Rescue. I also have been pet sitting for friends and neighbors for years and absolutely love it.

My services range from check-ins and check-ups, dog walking, and home/overnight sitting in your home. While I pet-sit in your home, I will walk, feed and play with your pet, and can offer additional ad hoc services, if needed. I look forward to getting to know your awesome pet!

Excellent as always
Dana was amazing! This was the longest vacation that I've taken away from my pets (3 weeks), and so it was important that someone stay in my home to minimize the stress on my cats. She sent me frequent updates, and took really good care of my active dog and two kitties.

Before scheduling with her, she came to my house to meet the animals and took detailed notes about my animal's needs. A week before my trip she visited again, and had a detailed folio with everything we had previously discussed. It was great!

While on my trip, I was never stressed about how my animals were doing. I knew they were being well cared for and loved. I missed them, and so the photos were such a highlight.

When I returned home, my animals were happy to see me, but none of them looked stressed at all. I could tell that they were well taken care of. My dog was so excited to see her again when she later returned!

I would definitely book with Dana again! She's definitely an animal lover, with a sharp attention to detail.

i had no hesitation with Dana caring for our furbabies. Everything was done right and the note after the visit was nice.
Repeat customer of the best pet sitter! Dana goes the extra mile, for example, we were across country and needed extra days of pet sitting, as our return trip would be delayed. Dana was right there for us. She makes sure pet owners have 100% peace of mind while traveling ... little things: photos, texts updates, answers texts right away -- she's just there for her clients and you can have complete trust in her. i've done due diligence in finding the right pet sitter: read tons of reviews, interviewed, called references... Dana is the best! I have a security/pet camera that records when I'm away. I can check in with my phone anytime to see how the cats are doing and can look at the video history to make sure everything is okay. I feel so confident in Dana that I don't even check in or look at history anymore. I just know my guys are that well taken care of.

We're repeat clients ... Dana is so sweet to our cats, always a text away and responds right away to questions. As soon as she accepts a job, she makes it a priority to give pets and owners the very best experience. I never have to worry about my cats when I'm away and I fully enjoy myself knowing she's got everything covered.

This is our second time using DogVacay and choosing Dana to watch our two cats. Dana is very nurturing to our cats and takes very good care of them. I have a pet/nanny cam that I use to check in on the cats, but it also records 24/7, and I can see our cats develop a friendship with Dana during her visits (one of our cats won't go near anyone and he's starting to come from under the bed to visit her). It's so awesome going through the videos and seeing that my cats are well taken care of.

We'll be going on an 11-day vacation next week and Dana will be watching our cats for a third time.
If you want someone competent, nurturing, and you can trust with your home and pets, Dana is your pet sitter! We're very lucky to have found her!

Dana is awesome and takes great care of our three boys. We loved receiving pictures that helped us keep in touch. Dana makes it so you can leave town without a worry :)
Dana has taken care of our dog Buck many times now and she always has been great with him. He is a dog that needs a lot of patience and care (he is older and can be cranky) - Dana was clearly experienced and gentle with him from day one and she is always our first choice when looking for overnight care.

Dana is kind and willing to work with you. i appreciate her visit note too.
Dana was awesome! We highly recommend her and will use her services again and again... For starters, she took great notes during our "meet & greet". During our trip, Dana kept us informed with texts and periodic photos. When we returned home, all was great and KoKo was very happy with Dana :-)

Dana was great with our family dog (German Shepherd) during his care. She was flexible and very interested in knowing our pet's daily habits prior to caring for him. She provided daily updates, pictures and was very responsive in all communications. Definitely would use her again and recommend to friends.

Dana did a great job caring for our 3 boys. When we returned everyone seemed happy, healthy and well rested. We will definitely book with Dana again soon.
Dana was fantastic! She came prepared for the meet and greet and took lots of notes so that she understood all of the needs for our dog and cats while we were away. She maintained great communication and when an emergency arose, she used the emergency contacts to help the situation. I would definitely use Dana again!

I was really stressed about leaving our dog without a family member or close friend, which we had never done in the almost 6 years she has been with us. Gracie is 80 lbs and not always the most well-behaved girl on the leash. I really wanted her to stay in our own home and Dana was available to spend nights with her in our house. Dana was about as caring as she could be and she and Gracie bonded to the point that Gracie slept on the bed with Dana, who sent pics and reports every day. Dana even came every day from work at lunch time to let Gracie out and provide love and comfort. I was completely confident Gracie was in great hands and did not stress or worry at all. I am now far more open to longer trips where we can't take a dog as long as Dana is available!! I am very grateful for the excellent and reliable care Gracie received from Dana and would highly recommend her for any kind of pet services.

Dana did a great job with our pup Sophie. She has clearly done this before - she came to our meet and greet on time and prepared to ask questions so that she could provide Sophie with the best care possible. Dana was willing to accommodate our normal schedule even though it meant coming back to the house an additional time each day. She provided us with updates and pictures of Sophie every day. It was evident that Dana's main interest was in making sure we, and more importantly, our dog were happy. I would definitely recommend her services.

So happy with Dana, she exceeded my expectations and know she will be used again by our family! Thanks to Dovacy, we have found Dana, someone we can depend on & trust for our four legged family members!
Dana was awesome! I left my two very needy/fickle pups with her while I was away for the weekend and they seemed like they had a great time! She sent me regular updates, was very communicative, and clearly really loves dogs. I definitely plan on using her again!

We are so happy to have Dana to watch our dog. She is reliable and a true animal lover. She's the best! Would gladly let her watch Bob anytime!
My pups care was perfect w Dana. She is everything we needed in a sitter to be able to enjoy our time away from home. We've already booked with her again.
Dana took excellent care of our cats for 8 days while we were away. We searched long and hard for the right person ... every petsitting website, posted ads on our local listserv, emailed/talked to a lot of people from Craigslist - I mean, I couldn't have been more thorough in my search for the right person. Then I found Dana! She provided us with references, was thorough in her intake visit (asking about all of our needs) ... we use a security camera to visit with out cats while away and could see they were very happy - running around, playing, and living as they usually do when we're home. We could see from the video cam that Dana kept the cats' litter boxes clean, kept them fed/watered, and gave them good company. This was my first time leaving the cats for more than a couple of days ... so glad we found Dana! I would feel confident to leave my little dudes in her hands anytime!

Dana watched our rescue dog shortly after we adopted him (less than two weeks). He takes a while to warm up to strangers, but Dana did a great job with him. We will definitely use her again.
Dana is wonderful and took excellent care of our dog during our recent trip. She was very responsible, contentious and caring to our older pet. Our dog was very comfortable in her care and it was helpful that she came to our house so he was in his own environment. Dana keep us updated with photos during the weekend. I highly recommend her.

This was our first time using Dogvacay and Dana was an excellent sitter for our newly adopted dog. She was thorough in her preparation and sent plenty of photos of our mutt while we were gone. The dog had a great time -- he was as happy when we returned as before we left. She obviously cares a lot about animals and it showed in her close attention to ours. Highly recommended, we'll hire her again.
