About Gayle

We are a family that loves dogs. We are NOT professional dog groomers or borders. We do NOT have dog runs or kennels. We do NOT have heated beds and offer your dog TV viewing times. We are a family that opens our house up to other dogs because we think it's a better, friendlier, and less stressful way to care for dogs when you're on vacation yourself. When we go on vacation, we use DogVacay ourselves, but only with other dog-loving families. Your dog gets lots of love, walks, exercise, playtime and attention.

We understand dogs. We know their body language, and we pay attention to them. We have been rescuing Keeshonden for the past 15 years, so we have experience with dogs!

We have a huge house that your dog will enjoy free range of, another dog to help keep your dog company (a Keeshond, of course!), and 3 dog-friendly kids to help wear out your dog! Someone is home to keep your dog company, except between 8 am and 3 pm. Your dog will enjoy daily walks, lots of attention and treats while here! Our dog is a Senior with a laid-back attitude and friendly demeanor.

House Rules:
1. Your dog must be spayed/neutered.
2. Your dog must be current on all vaccinations, including Bordatella.
3. Your dog must have a nail clipping before arriving. This is to protect your dog as well as my hardwood floors.
3. Your dog MUST be completely potty trained!
4. Large breeds are ok, but your dog must be an "indoor dog." We go for daily walks, but most of the time will be spent inside, unless the family is playing outside.
5. Rudimentary obedience training is desirable.
6. You provide food, leash, treats and chews, and dog dishes for food and water. Also any special toys and/or bed.
7. Can administer oral medications.

Casey loves staying with Gayle and her family. He always seems to have a really good time playing with her children.
Once again, Casey had a great time with his "vacation family." Gayle sent us pictures of him both days and he looked like he was totally enjoying himself. We so appreciate having a safe, loving environment for him when we have to be away from home.
Bailey stayed with Gayle and her family for over a week. It was a better experience than we could have imagined. Gayle and her family treated Bailey as if she were one of their own. We appreciated the daily pictures and emails. Bailey went from a shy first-timer to sleeping with Gayle's daughter within the first few days. Having walks every day and her family playing with Bailey alleviated most of the usual guilt we feel when we fly on vacation(Bailey slightly too big to fly). I give Gayle and her family the very highest recommendation and will definitely do our best to book far enough in advance to have Bailey stay there again, whenever possible. THANKS!!!
Once again, Gayle and her family gave our little guy a great weekend! He really enjoys spending time with them and playing with the children. We know he looks forward to his "vacays" with her family. We feel very blessed to have found this service for our Casey so that we no longer have to put him in a kennel.
Our Casey had a wonderful time with you and your family. In the pictures you sent to us you could tell he was smiling and enjoying playing with you and the children. We will definitely call on you again when we're going out of town.

Thanks so very much.

Deb and Dick
We were extremely pleased with the care Gayle and her family provided for our dog. She sent us photos and a brief message of what our dog, Lilly, had done each day. I have no doubt about the care that Lilly received, which was excellent.
Gayle and her family took superior care
Of our "not easy" dog
They took him to the dog park, playground
And even slept with him downstairs! I wish
I visited Pgh more often so I could see
This wonderful family again. Many many thanks
To all of you
We were very satisfied with our dog's stay with Gayle. She is very conscientious about his care and we feel very comfortable leaving him with her. Her own dog is very sweet and seems very willing to share his home with other dogs.
Great experience. We would highly recommend Gayle to anyone. Don
This was a great match for a home environment for our dog while we were away. We were very thankful to find a host close to home. The family was very nice and friendly. .
