About Dana

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I grew up with poodles my whole life due to allergies my mother had. When I left the nest, I was able to adopt a bigger dog and from that point on I have always had a poodle and a larger dog that always became friends. I can say I have rescued and adopted 5 dogs. I can't imagine a home without a furry friend to greet you at the door. I have a large house with a pool that is safely gated. Two large grass areas in the backyard and plenty of room to run and frolic. Dogs will sleep inside the house either on a bed or in a crate. We do have swimming days weather permitting, when only dogs are allowed in the pool (preserves provided if needed and wanted). Plenty of toys to go around. Walks are a must to keep us all in shape. I am a medical technician and can spot a little friend who's not having a good day or a break out/rash. I am Personal friends with a Veterinarian and can speed dial if any of our friends don't feel good. I love dogs and when any dog is at our home, they are considered part of our family.
I am always approachable and will respect your specific instructions.

Multi-Dog Discount: $25 for each additional dog.

Note: there will be an extra $5 charge for puppies.

Dana has a lovely home with a large fun backyard. Her pups are friendly and nice. Dana is a true dog lover. She has great knowledge if there is ever an emergency. If you need a host for multiple dogs, this is a great place.
Our dog Kelsey had a great overnight stay with Dana! She has a big house and yard for pups to play in. My dog was very comfortable with Dana's dog, Brooklyn, who is a big sweetheart. Dana took special care to ensure our senior Lab was comfortable in her home. Highly recommended!
Dana and her family are absolutely incredible! You can tell they truly love dogs and treat them as their own. My pup stayed with Dana for almost a week and he came home tired and happy (what more could I ask for) they have a beautiful home and great backyard for dogs to play.
Oh my gosh...all I can say is Dana is the best… My Daphne had the best time came home happy and exhausted… She knows so much and is just a special lady with a special love of dogs. I am so grateful to DogVacay for helping me find her!!
Dana has a beautiful & comfortable home and the sweetest and well-behaved dogs who immediately made Rusty feel welcome. The AC was on at a cool temperature to keep the pups cool during a miserable heat wave, and Dana also has a nice pool for Rusty to swim and cool off for a couple of hours before he was picked up. Most importantly, Rusty felt comfortable with Dana right away and I booked daycare on the spot with another day booked already.
Dana was amazing with my 1 year old pup. It was my pups first night away from me and I was pretty nervous. After meeting with Dana I felt much more at ease! and the pictures and updates she sent definitely helped with that as well! I would without a doubt recommend Dana to other dog users and I will definitely use her again if it is needed.
Vinnie, our puppy, had a great stay with Dana. She took very good care of him and texted us updates daily. Also, her own dogs are very sweet and fun to play with. Thanks, Dana!
Our 3 1/2 year old 75 lb Dobie/ Lab Bella had a wonderful time staying with Dana and her family at Fido's fun house! We would definately board Bella with Dana again.
Her home is very dog friendly and Bella and the other doggies got along very well. Dana understands dogs perfectly. Bella loves to swim in the pool there and play with Brooklyn and Maggie.

Thank you Dana!
We left our 3 1/2 year old energetic and friendly doberman mix with Dana, and Bella had a great time playing with Brooklyn and Maddie, Dana's dogs.
They all enjoyed the pool on a hot day, and snoozing inside and with Dana's family.
We will be leaving Bella with Dana when we go for a longer trip!
Such a great time with Dana! Thank you so much for watching Kai
I would definitely recommend Dana; Finn had a great time playing with Dana's pups and is going back in a few weeks for a longer stay! So happy we found Dana. :)
