About Diana

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! My name is Diana and Greg is my husband. We have three wonderful kids- A fifteen year old, a thirteen year old and a five year old. We have a big dog named Reagan, who is part lab, retriever and husky. We rescued him last summer and he brings so much joy to our family. (Although he is over 100 pounds- he thinks he is a lap dog! He is a lover!) He gets along with every dog he has met! Dogs actually tend to follow him around and he just "goes with the flow!" He's pretty low key and never is aggressive towards other dogs.

Before we had Reagan, we had a boxer named Bruno Elliot for ten great years. He was extremely loving, and EXTREMELY high energy! So, if your dog has HIGH energy, we are all very used to that, too!

I stay at home five days a week. We have a large fenced-in yard with large trees and we also have a canopy over our deck for extra shade.

Our home is pretty active, and since we have teens that LOVE dogs too- your dog will have TONS of attention and love! Dogs love to come here!

Dogs are allowed to roam wherever on our main floor, but we keep a gate up on the stairs, as we don't allow doggies upstairs. (Unless, our kiddos sneak them up there to play... Which may happen from time to time and that is okay!)

We love doggy walks and have a great park right down our block which is fun to walk to and doggies enjoy it!

If your dog loves to play outside, take walks, have lots of good family time and enjoys a pet-friendly home, this is it! We will take excellent care of your best buddy- it's truly home away from home!

Thanks so much for saving us and watching Rosco last minute!! We got him home and he's exhausted, he just loves your family so much and has so much fun. It was such a relief to know that he was safe and sound while we were away. He misses the kids already, and we're starting to think he likes them more than us lol

Diana and her family were so kind to me and my dog Max. She sent several photo updates, and gave him a lot of attention! He was exhausted the next day, which tells me he had tons of fun! Thanks again!
Kacie May had a great time! She looked so happy in all the pics we received and we could tell she was a little sad to leave her new friends. We had to book last minute and Diana was super accommodating, overall a good experience and we will definitely be returning to stay with the family. Thanks!

Diana and Greg and kids did a fantastic job of keeping our dog Buster busy. The pictures that were sent showed our dog looking very happy. I didn't think Buster would want to go home but I think he was ready to rest for awhile. We will use them again next time we travel.

Diana and her family were great with my dog Quincy. He spent nearly a week with them and had a great time.
Everything at Diana's was great, from the meet-n-greet, throughout Scout's stay, and on pick-up. Scout seemed to have a great time, bonded with one of her children, and was tired out when he returned home.

We enjoyed the pics, and look forward to more stays with Diana and her family.

Diana was able to take my reservation at the last minute. She and her family were awesome. They made me feel comfortable right away. They sent me pictures to assure me that everything was going well.Tessa is high energy, and because she had the opportunity to play with Diana's children plus a couple of dogs, she was totally tuckered out when she came home. I understand that Diana's husband even got up at 2am to take Tessa out. It was truly a family affair. I would have no qualms about using their service again. Thanks again for all you did.

Diana's family was a great fit for our dog, Arya - they have a bigger dog who is very chill so Arya was able to play with him non-stop. Their son also took her for runs, which are her FAVORITE and she always seemed to find a bed to cuddle with someone at night which is also her favorite.
This is a super nice, laid back environment for a dog and I've already booked another vacay with them because Arya seemed so happy when I picked her up.

Diana's family took great care of our high energy German Shorthaired Pointer, Oskar. After a restless first night, he settled in with the family and their great dog Regs. In an effort to burn off Oskar's inexhaustible energy, Diana's 15-yr old son and Oskar went for long daily runs and became best buddies. I'm so grateful for the family's extra effort and patience. We felt great knowing he was with a loving family and the pictures and updates were a daily treat.
I highly recommend Diana and would not hesitate to work with her again!

Diana and her family took such good care of our little Rosco while we were on vacation for 14 days. We received adorable photo updates of Rosco, and think he even got a bath? (Yes, we were probably the parents with the stinky dog). But he came home smelling great lol. Rosco had such a good time we were worried he wouldn't want to come home! He went to the dog park, had walks, and lots of play time. Even now that he is at home with us we can tell he misses them and all the fun he had. We couldn't be happier knowing that Rosco was well taken care of and had a mini-vacation of his own. Definitely will be repeat customers, after all, Rosco keeps looking around for their daughter who he really bonded with.

A true vacation for our dog!

Very attentive family that gave Abbey a lot of love,affection and exercise. I like that the entire family gets involved, as our dog loves kids.

We will definitely use Diana again--hopefully she doesn't book up too fast!

This was the first time I had ever left my dogs with anyone else besides family. Was extremely nervous about the whole process and did not want to leave them in any kind of group kennel.

Diana and family were awesome.. I met them first with the pups and felt comfortable right away, so did the dogs..well one maybe too comfortable. haha (inside joke).

After leaving them we received updates and photos everyday..they seemed so happy and content...

I would definitively use them again if the need arises without thinking twice!

We could not have been more happy with Diana and her family! Daily updates were wonderful and our dogs clearly were well cared for. One of our dogs can be quite timid in new situations and she thrived there. It amazed us how quickly she felt comfortable and came out of her shell. We will definitely book a doggy Vacay with Diana and her family again!

We are from out of town and don't like leaving our dogs with just anyone. After reviewing a lot of people in this area.....we got a perfect match. As dog lovers, it was wonderful to leave our dogs with a family that loved on them till we got back. Got lots of pictures from their visit too. I have a Jack Russell.mix and a Great Dane.....these dogs played and played while my girls shopped and shopped. If you are looking for a family to take real care of your dog's and love on them.....you have found your dog host. Thanks for everything !! Stephanie Anthony

This was our first time working with Diana and family. They took great care of our big love bug, Summit. We received multiple photo updates throughout Summit's stay and it was evident that Summit was having a fantastic time and was well taken care of. We highly recommend them and look forward to booking with them again. :)

Finley had an awesome time with Diana and her family. The pictures I got everyday made being away from him that much easier. I can't wait to bring him there again. One of the nicest families I have ever met. :)
Our first time to DogVacay and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Diana and her family were welcoming, kind, and made it extremely easy for us to leave our pup for the weekend. Her whole family works as a team to take care of the dogs and we loved knowing that the kids would be walking and cuddling our dog while we were away. Would absolutely, highly recommend this family any day!

Diana and family took such great care of Sadie. I enjoyed the pics and notes that she sent everyday.
This was our first dog vacay so we weren't sure what to expect, but seeing how spoiled our pup was, we would definitely want her to stay with them again!

We feel so lucky to have found Diana and her amazing family to care for Quincy. We received daily updates and photos throughout our vacation and felt completely confident leaving him for the first time. We highly recommend Diana, Greg and kids!
Diana and her entire family took Milo into their home and loved him like he was their own dog. I was sent daily photos and updates and was comforted to know he was loved so much while we were gone. I will definitely have them take care of Milo in the future.

Diana R and her Family instantly quelled any fears we might have had about leaving our two 7 year old Puggles outside of our sight! All requests were honored and photos provided of both pups being pampered and loved. The hone is lovely and they were accommodating and I suspect even allowed on furniture! Walks and the fenced back yard were wonderful bonuses. I very much hope that our twosome will be allowed back for a visit. In fact i have already requested a new date to be scheduled! Our first use of Dogvacay. 5 stars.

Diana and her family were awesome with my large breed/12 yr old Pup. The husky in her got a ton of running in with her son, and I was thankful she got lots of exercise! We will definitely be booking again should the need arise. Thank you Diana and family!!!!

It was our first time boarding with Diana, and sure will not be the last one. Our pup was spoiled and loved throughout the whole stay there. Daily pictures and updates were great. We are very happy and will be coming back for sure. Diana and her family are the best!

If you are looking for a home for your dog that is filled with lots of love from children and adults look no further. Diana and her entire family (three amazing kids and husband) are in this together and all took an active role to ensure my two active Australian Shepherds were pampered and kept busy. I received regular updates and pictures showing how they were taking runs, playing ball, snuggling on couches and even changing sleeping arrangements so my dogs would be comfortable. They took all of my requests very seriously and made sure my senior Aussie had special attention from their youngest daughter. My active younger Aussie was thrilled to play with another energetic guest and arrived home exhausted from his adventures. I was a bit nervous about leaving them when we were out of the country for over a week but Diana quickly put me at ease and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Thank you!

We ended up looking for someone to watch our 1 year old energetic goldendoodle after our normal sitter had to back out. We were lucky enough to be connected with Diana and her family! She was absolutely amazing with updates and photos! Cali got all the attention she could have hoped for, went for runs and got to play fetch until she was pooped. She legitimately slept for an entire day after getting home- that has never happened before. I highly recommend Diana and her family! Thanks again. :-)

Diana and her family showed such fantastic care to my dogs Cali and Houdini! They loved their time together and it gave me such peace knowing my dogs were being loved by this entire family. Houdini had a birthday while he was there and they celebrated by singing "Happy Birthday" & a birthday toy given by Diana's youngest daughter. I couldn't ask for anything more! My dogs will definitely be going back the next time I am out of town!

Diana was a great host, gave us updates including photos. We felt totally comfortable with her family watching our sweeties!
Diana and her family did an awesome job for us when we needed a couple nights of dog care. They kept our dog exercised and shared plenty of updates and photos with us.

We highly recommend them and will be back should we need help with our dog, Ivy, again. This is a great family and you can book with them without any worry.

Hello,

Diana R and her family took such good care of my puppy honey. She sent me at least one picture daily and took honey on multiple walks every day. I never felt uncomfortable with honey at their house. I will use Diana again on my next vacation. Diana and her kids went above and beyond making honey feel at home.

Had a wonderful experience using Diana and her family to board my dog, Cleo. Cleo is an old dog who at the time had a sore shoulder. I had a last minute need and Diana was quick to respond. Her home and yard are perfectly suited for dog boarding and her and her children obviously love dogs. I could tell instantly Cleo was going to love it. I got some great picture updates and when I picked Cleo up she was sleepy and happy :) THat's how I know when she had a good time. Will definitely be reaching out to Diana and her family for future needs!

The best dog sitting experience EVER!!!! I love this family! They took such awesome care for Chloe. The pics were the best! Each member of the family participated in caring for Chloe which I adored. Chloe loved staying there and I really don't think she wanted to come home. If anybody in the surrounding Minneapolis/St. Paul area is looking for a pet sitter, this is your family! Chloe even slept in bed with one of the family members instead of her own bed. Chloe will be back soon!
