About Dawn

31 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you are like me and the thought of boarding your fur babies in a kennel environment is just not for you, this may be the alternative you are looking for. We have a large warm cozy house with an acre of fully fenced yard for your dog to run free and explore. I never leave the pups unattended and Scooby and Gage provide plenty of play time should your pooch be playful . We also have plenty of comfy couches for the less playful or more mature pups.I don't have specific pick up and drop off times and will work with whatever is best for you and the pups.
Boarding fees are based on a 24hr period. Any time over that will be subject to daycare charges .
.I do insist on your pups having flea / tick treatment before they arrive as we live right next door to the woods and even though I have the yard sprayed professionally the whole year it doesn't prevent the odd tick. Also that your pup be fully house trained and up to date on all shots, especially Rabies and Bordatella.
We will NOT take any dog who does not have proof of these vaccinations.We also do not take constant barkers out of respect to our neighbors .
We are within 15 minutes of the New London train station and the Long Island Ferry , one hour from Providence and Hartford Intl airports and roughly 20 minutes from the Fox Woods and Mohegan Sun casino's. I walk the dogs twice daily, once before breakfast and once before dinner and in the summer we may slip another walk in around lunch time..
We have three rescue puppies of our own and would be more than happy to welcome your fur baby into our family.

My dogs enjoyed their stay. One of them Is a 10 year old grumpy chihuahua with pretty bad separation anxiety. She sent me plenty of updates and made me feel at ease. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good dog sitter
Awesome, as usual!!
Our dog had an excellent stay with Dawn. Dawn was very flexible with our needs. Our dog definately enjoyed his stay - was very tired out from all of his play time. It was also great to receive so many photos during the weekend. Highly recommend Dawn - we would definately use her again if we are in the area.
