About Charlene

I have been caring for and loving dogs, cats, actually all animals, for over 45 years.

My home has a large pet friendly backyard that is perfect for your pups to lounge and play in while you are on vacation. I will provide daily walks and unlimited indoor/outdoor playtime at home.

I am available to supervise your pups 24/7 and provide transportation to a vet in case of an emergency and groomer.

Your fur babies must love cats because our kitties loves to snuggle :)

We all look forward to hearing from you!

Diamond had a great time! Charlene was really good about giving me updates and sending pictures to assure me that my little sweetie was doing great.
Charlene is a fantastic host! I'm a repeat costumer because I trust her so much with my 15 year old Maltese, Buddy! Charlene sends video and photo updates of your dog to rest assured that they are doing great! My dog Buddy gets along with her 2 other sweet dogs. Thanks again Charlene!
Well my pet stay was very short notice and was only supposed to be from 11 am-9pm. I was out of town in Houston with family. And I was starting to think 9 may not be enough time. So then literally every extra hour I thought it would be I messaged Charlene and asked if later would be okay. I probably did that like 3 times because I didn't end up getting him till about 1am!! She told me every time "don't worry, it's all good, whenever is fine". And can I just say that for me, not ever being late to anything or not ever deferring from a plan, felt horrible. I don't like to Inconvienance anyone. However, if I was Inconvienanceing her, I would never know because how kind and flexible she was. I have been to her for a few vacations. My dog Milo always seems to be tired! Which means to me that he is getting the attention he wants and gets tired from playing with her other animals. I get a few pictures through out the day just so I have peace of mind that nothing's wrong. And some of those pictures are the best ever captured of him.
Charlene was great! She responded quickly to my plea for a last-minute sitter. My cavalier fit in well with her sweet dogs (and cats). I recommend her without any hesitations!
Charlene is wonderful! When Rocky doesn't adjust well to travel or change he tends to get a little nauseated when he returns home. This was not the case after I picked him up from Charlene. He was calm and happy as if nothing had happened. So his stay was non-traumatic and non-stressful. This makes me happy. Thank you to Charlene for taking care of my puppy so well and giving him all the love and attention he likes. We will definitely call on you again when in need of a sitter.
This is the third time that Charlene has cared for our two little girls. My husband and I are very pleased with the care she provides for them. They are treated as part of their family and all their needs are met including lots of cuddling, of course. Charlene provides us with pictures and up dates on how they are doing while in her care. This gives us peace of mind that they are safe and being well cared for. This allows us to enjoy our vacation even though we miss our little ones. We plan to continue to place our puppies with Charlene when ever we travel in the future. We highly recommend her as a puppy sitter.
This is the first time I have used Dog Vacay. We were traveling form Illinois to Texas for a wedding, needed a place for our five month Shih Tzu to stay during the rehearsal and wedding. Coming from another State there was no advance meeting. Charlene and I had spoken on the phone and I felt Faith would be well taken care of. Boy was my gut feelings right. Charlene was great. She took good care of Faith.
If we ever return to Round Rock and need a sitter she is the one. I can not say enough about the caring way she took care of our puppy.
Our two little girls are both senior puppies who love to just lay about, relaxing and enjoy being pampered. While at Charlene's that is exactly what takes place. They are pampered and well taken care off. While we are on our vacation, Charlene provides us with pics and updates on our puppies letting us know that our girls are having a fun vacation just as we are knowing they are healthy and safe. We will definitely place them with Charlene from now on.
Char was WONDERFUL!! Brutus really enjoyed himself there with and her two dogs. She's responsive and I even received pics of Brutus while I was away. I will definitely use Char again, plus Brutus made new friends. :-)
Both my husband and I are very pleased with the care and attention that our little puppies received from Charlene and her husband. They were both very friendly and accommodating. Our girls received great care while on their DogVacay. Charlene sent us photos and text messages letting us know how the girls were doing while we were away. This put our minds at easy knowing they were being well taken care of, so we were able to relax and enjoy our trip. We definitely will use Charlene as sitter for our girls when we travel again.
Absolutely great people to work with!They keep you updated with your pet via pics and videos.I thought that was cool...
Zuzu had a great time. Wonderful communication and flexibility. Thank you!
April and Dixie had a wonderful time visiting Ms. Charlene. She has a lovely dog-friendly home with a big backyard perfect for our energetic Westie and a cozy sofa for our Schnauzer. We got many pictures of our babies relaxing and having fun with her resident pets. I would highly recommend Fur Baby Haven, and we will visit again when our pups need a home away from home :)
My yorkies were so happy when we got there. They couldn't wait to go on their vacay. We had gone a few days earlier for a meet & greet and they enjoyed the visit very much. They played with the 2 other dogs that were there and Tucker even smiled for Ms. Charlene. (It usually takes him quite a while to warm up to someone enough to smile at them.) When I arrived to pick them up I could tell they had been pampered even more than at home. Tucker didn't seem nervous or anxious like he usually does. Sydnee thinks she owns everyone anyway and was allowed to be the princess that she thinks she is. Charlene sent pics to us and her whole family enjoyed having my babies over. (They were even allowed to sleep in the bed.) I know they were taken care of. It is wonderful to know that when I have to leave them, I have a home away from home for them to go to. We will definitely visit Ms. Charlene again.
