About Carrie

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a professional, and a mother of 2. I will treat your pet with the care they are accustomed to and love them like my own. I love to take pictures of your pet to keep you informed, and show you how much fun they are having. I have been around dogs my entire life. I can walk 2-4 dogs at a time, or walk your doggie solo if you like. We live in a community with fun pathways off of the street, and a nice large grassy areas out front and around the fence pool.
At my townhouse I have a larger sized patio terrace filled with durable plants and nice shade, areas to sniff and potty, while staying at my home, and a very secure fence. I am happy to have your pets feel at home while staying indoors with the family. The doggies are always supervised when outside, including in the fenced yard, and doggies can potty or play outside, but they do not have to stay outside. While your dog stays at my home they will have the option playing with other pets if applicable or having their own space, if you prefer. I like to have everyone in the community space, truly a home environment for the dogs. I love to take walks and leisurely strolls for your senior pet. I have a station wagon that allows me to transport or take your pet on a field trip to walk in wide outdoor spaces such as state park access points or perhaps a place you like! I also like to walk around my neighborhood to Veterans Park nearby. I have experience lifting large dogs and care for convalescent dogs as well. My dog of 13 years passed away last year. I really appreciate all the nice doggies and families that I have met, while per siI am a dependable professional, and a mother of 2. I will treat your pet with the care they are accustomed to and love them like my own. I love to take pictures of your pet to keep you informed, and show you how much fun they are having.
I have many reviews on another popular pet boarding site service, I am new to dogvacay but I am excited about the service they offer for pet sitters and doggie parents and I am happy to join the community.

My dogs usually will bark at strangers but they never barked at Carrie. They like Carrie the very first time they saw her. That was a big relief. Carrie also made it a point to send us updates and pictures of them which is greatly appreciated. Will definitely bring back my "grandkids with tails" again when needed.

Carrie and Brad were great with our blue tick hound. Daily walks and other dogs. Clean home. Fair price. Highly recommended!
Super Great Family, took great care of our two little boys and sent us picture updates of their stay.
Our dog Chico spent 2 days with Carrie and husband Brad in their home in Fairfield, CA. He was well cared for and we were frequently in contact with them via messages and pictures in the Vacay app. If we needed to have them care for Chico again, would not hesitate!
Thanks Carrie and Brad!

Everything went super smooth. Carrie and Brad were wonderful. Thank you to you and your family!
Kimbo has had a couple great stays with Carrie and her family. She is flexible, caring, attentive, and truly loves animals. I would recommend her to anyone.
Carrie was great! She responded quickly to questions and sent me pictures of my pup every other day. Will definitely use her again in the future!
We met with Carrie and Brad for a meet and greet with our pomeranian mix Zelda. They were a very gracious host. They provided us with all the information with what to expect for our dog's stay with them. She sent us update photos regularly on the activities to keep Zelda active and comfortable. We truly appreciate their efforts and hope to use their services again. Hopefully Zelda has made a few friends and has learned a great deal of getting along with other dogs.

Carrie did a wonderful job watching our lab. Carrie took her on daily walks and even visited our usual dog park so our dog would feel at home. We received written and picture updates to show us how our lab was doing. Wonderful job by Carrie!
My dog for sure had a good time. They update me with pictures of my dog enjoying her time with her new found dog friends. They let the dogs get comfortable with each other. House is clean and air conditioned all the time which is great! Carrie and husband are hands on. Very pleased and will definitely bring Nala back.

Our dog was taken great care of with Carrie and her family! We received many photo updates of him walking, playing and lounging with the other doggies at the house.
Carrie was excellent with response time, updates and handling of our pup. We'd definitely use her again in the future.
My mom and I have both taken our dogs to Carrie when we have gone on vacation and Carrie never disappoints! Our dogs have always come home happy! They get a lot of time to play and socialize with the other dogs, as well as a few walks a day. Carrie really cares for all the dogs she takes care of and is very accommodating of all your pet's needs. The photo updates are awesome because we see how our dogs are doing throughout their stay. We are very thankful that our dogs have found a second home whenever we need to skip town for a few days. :)

Carrie ha been so wonderful with Chloe- she has been excellent about giving me regular updates and, best of all, about sending me lots of photos. I have no doubt Chloe is in the best of hands and is well cared-for and loved. While I miss her terribly, it gives me comfort to know she is happy!
