About Gracelynn

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs


BIG or SMALL, I LOVE THEM ALL.

Comfortable, loving Daycare and In Home Overnight Boarding are the services I provide. I have Been caring for animals all my life. I have a special bond with all the dogs. I provide a great service with all needs met. Plenty of love and a lot of time spent with the pets here.

A large fenced tropical paradise yard give your pet plenty of room to roam and play. For the doggie swimmers, A swimming pool is accessible and fully secured with a POOL SAFETY FENCE . Throughout the day we have activities such as fetching, running, walks, swimming and plenty of petting with love.

I'm fond of the elder and special needs pets. Pups that are aged or limited in activities stay by my side, on my lap, in the fanned sun protected screen room or have complete access into the home through a doggie door. They learn how use it to go in and out extremely early in their stay here. I want all the pets to be comfortable.

I post pictures of the day activities to your account here and on Facebook all day. To see what a day looks like on Facebook, you may friend me Gracelynn Tenaglia. The dogs have plenty of beds , couches and spaces to choose from, including my bed if there is any room left lol. They are not crated unless you specify this.

I will take all breeds and sizes. To have a safe and happy home, I recommend a meet and greet so I may view the pets temperament and if it will be a good fit in this home. ALL pups should be socialized and have a good temperment to other pets, people and toys. All dogs are feed separated from each other.

Aggressive pets and pets that can not be left unattended due to severe anxiety, making them damage property when left unattended for a short time, will need a service within your own home or kennel rather than this type of free range in home boarding.

I guarantee your pets will love it here and go home happy, loved and definitely wanting to come back to their GG'S house. I treat them as if they are my pets.

Message me with any questions, set up a meet and greet or ask for a quote. We can go over your specific pets needs, concerns, pricing and make for a happy experience. I WILL PROVIDE REFERENCES.

NOTE: PLEASE READ THE REQUIREMENTS FOR VACCINATIONS, TEMPERMENT EVALUATION, HOURS OF DROP OFF AND PICKUP PRIOR TO BOOKING.

When your pets stay for boarding or daycare, we recommend you bring them for a scheduled visit prior to boarding to get them familiar with the new surroundings.

BRING:
FOOD: labeled with the pets name, amount to be fed and how many times a day. If the food is not in the original bag please write the brand name.

MEDICATIONS:
It's very important that this is CLEARLY discussed. If the medication is a bought over the counter item , PLEASE tape a piece of paper on the bottle. Label the pets name, how many to give or amount and how many times a day.
Again, it's URGENt that medications a written or displayed clearly. Scheduled amounts, times, with/without food and how to administer.
There are times when medications are prescribed to a pup and the instructions change by the Vet but the bottle info is still the same.
By taking some time to write this info out we can both make sure that the pets are properly cared for. I am experienced in administering medications and injections.

I prefer no toys, bedding and bowls since these items my be marked, mixed up or damage by another boarder. I will make exceptions if needed.

Gigi was great with my Beau. She sent lots of pictures showing me what a fun time he was having. We enjoyed seeing how much interaction he had with all the different breeds. We are greatly appreciative of Gigi's knowledge and caring ways with Beau. We will difinitly use her services again!

We felt completely confident with Molly in her care. We rescued Molly a few months ago and she does not like to be left alone. We were Able to relax and enjoy our granddaughters wedding knowing she was well cared for. I also appreciated the pictures and feedback she sent me afterward. I would give her all five stars. Thank you, Gracelynn.

We had such a great experience at GG's. Her house is super-clean (cleaner than our own home), I was afraid our dog wouldn't want to leave! So glad we found such a great place for our girl whenever we travel.
My boy, Chase, has been going to Gracelynn's (GG) for about a year now and he LOVES her! He so looks forward to going and gets so excited when he realizes where we are going. He goes to GG's twice a week and has overnighted before. GG is wonderful, loves the dogs and I'm so glad we found her.

We loved everything about Gracelynn! The dogs loved their two week stay with her! She puts videos and pictures on Facebook every day. The dogs swim in the pool, chase lizards and just have a great time! We couldn't ask for a better pet sitter!
My dog loved staying with Gracelynn! He had a ball Hanging out with the other dogs and I'm sure will look forward to going back the next time we travel. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have found such a wonderful pet sitter.
Gracelynn took care of our two dogs, Tulip and Norbou, while we were away on a 3 week overseas vacation. She kept us informed everyday of their progress via posted pictures on Facebook. It was reassuring and comforting to know that they were having the time of their lives. About half way through their stay, our larger 12 year old dog Norbou became ill from a preexisting condition. Gracelynn immediately contacted us. Norbou required veterinary care and Gracelynn went above and beyond by making several trips to our vet, staying with Norbou, handling all required administrative and medicinal requirements, and provided us with continuous updates. I cannot overemphasize the peace of mind she provided us until we could return. Gracelynn has a special connection and love for all pets and she will always be our first choice for pet care. Thank you once again Gracelynn.

Gracelynn is an excellent pet sitter. Very professional and attentive to every dog. Gracelynn has watched our dog twice and we were very satisfied both times. We will use her service again.
I will definitely take my dog back. Loved Gracelynn's facebook postings showing my pup happy and having fun outside in the pool!!
Gigi was fabulous with my dog Lily! It was our first time boarding with her, and I would use her again.
It's obvious how much she loves the dogs in her care, and how much they love her. She took great care of my Lily.

Her house and the grounds outside are spotless and reflects how hard she works at maintaining the cleanliness needed with so many dogs on the property

I will use Gigi again and would recommend her highly to anyone looking for a loving and caring a person to babysit their precious pup.

Thank you Gigi so much,
Pam and Lily

GG is the dog whisperer of St Lucie County.
I was put at ease the moment I arrived here. My dog Jake took right to the other dogs and to G.G. You can tell she is just an animal lover. He had a wonderful time playing outdoors during his stay. I think he enjoyed his vacation as much as we enjoyed ours!

This was the first time l had to leave my pups with someone and GG definitely made sure to make me feel comfortable about it. She is the greatest and really cares about Dogs. She posts not only pictures, but videos as well about what the pups are doing throughout the day. Highly recommend GG!

This was our first time leaving them We was a bit nervous to begin with, Gracelynn soon reassured us with photos and updates to our phones, They were in great hands with someone who loves Dogs and takes Good care of them , We will do this again and have no worries, What I Liked was no kennels they have full roam of the house, Garden.

Gracelynn is awesome with my puppy, and a extremely nice person. I was very nervous to leave him, but after meeting her, I knew he would be in great hands. She is very patient with him and she made me feel at ease. If anyone is looking for puppy daycare or boarding, please link up with Gracelynn. My baby is tired everyday when I pick him up. I won't trust anyone else but her.

GG is great with my sweet Hudson. He always comes home well taken care of and tired so I know he is getting the playtime and attention he needs. Thank you GG!
Gracelynn took good care of my two dogs....thanks!
This was the first time we had to leave our 6 year old lab and had mixed feelings but that soon left us after meeting GG. She took excellent care of our dog Mia and posted pictures of her daily so we could see how she was doing. We also texted her to check on Mia and I had an instant response. We will definetly use her again as it was such a relief to go away and know that our dog was in excellent hands. I highly recommend

The only place I leave my beloved Bruce is with GG. She gives him the love and attention that is 2nd best only to Mom and Dad! She even gives him his medications on time and in the right dosage. GG is a sweet and caring lady that I am glad to know and have her to take care of my dog. Don't hesitate to use her services!

Great as always, thanks for taking such good care of my babies. Lynne
I have known Gracelynn for about 3 years and would never dream of taking my dog anywhere else. The love and care she shows for my Bruce and all the dogs there is the next best thing to being home. Her home is immaculate and the dogs have the best of both worlds being inside (sleeping wherever they want!) and lots of yard time. Even swimming if that's their thing. Never hesitate about having your dog stay with Gracelynn. You'll be glad you did! PS.....we now live in Coral Springs which is way south of PSL and yet we still drive Bruce to stay with her!!

When I travel and leave Butkus there, I am confident that he will be well taken care of and have a great time.
Riley always has a great time when he is with GG! He loves playing with all the dogs and GG is awesome!
We love Grace she is very good to our fur babies. We have a Golden Retriever and a German Shepard and a lot of people don't take big dogs let alone Shepherds. They love her she is fabulous!!
Once again, we were very pleased with the care that Triskette received while at Gigi's. She is so loving with her....will always call on her when we need a "sitter" for her. Love the time she takes to send us pictures too.
My dog Stretch loves to go to GG's. I can tell he has a GREAT time by the pictures and videos Gracelynn posts on Facebook.
Maximus loves going to GG's, it's his second home!
Baxter had a great time. We feel very comfortable leaving him with Gracelynn.
I was so nervous leaving my little pup, Primrose, for the first time away with a stranger.....silly me. Gracelynn could not have been more perfect!!! My anxiety was completely unfounded. She loved my Beagle/French Bulldog mix as though she were her own. Truly she was such a blessing and I look forward to using her in the future!! Prim came home tired and happy...I can't say enough about how perfect Gracelynn's set up is for when you loving hands to take care of your pets!! My boyfriend is an excellent judge of character and he was very impressed with her immediately....which means more to me than anything as I trust him implicitly. Thank you Gracelynn for loving Prim and being so easy to contact and communicate with!!

Great as always. Gigi is so good with Triskette... She lines going there .
GG is the best. My Taylee loves her so much and GG is basically her second mom. I dont know what I would do with GG. She is an angel disguised as a dog sitter.
We're so grateful that we have found Gracelynn. I work from home so our Boxer, Sanford is used to someone being around all the time. We were looking for an option where Sanford would have the same companionship as home.

This was Sanford's 3rd and longest visit with Gracelynn. The first was an overnight, the second a day visit and the 3rd a 5 day stay while we took a quick vacation.

Our experiences have been nothing but positive. Sanford has a ball during his stays. When we pick him up, he's exhausted from all the play time he gets. He's never stressed out. It's so nice when we get home that all he wants to do is sleep, especially after we've been traveling. It's so nice to get away and not to worry about how our dog is being taken care of, I know he's in the best possible hands he could be in.

Thanks Gracelynn for the pictures and updates you send, along with your prompt service. You're the best.

My dog had a great time with GG and I was so happy to have him in a place where he was like part of the family/pack. A great experience for us!
We are so lucky to have found GG! She treats Jäger like he is one of her own. He recognizes her name and when we pull up to her house he is dragging us to the door.
Butkus just got back from spending four days with GG while I was away. As always, he had a wonderful stay. GG provides a safe, fun and loving 'second home' for Butkus.
I have 2 large dogs ages 7 and 8. This was my first time using DogVacay and Gracelynn and I couldn't be more pleased. Gracelynn posted photos of the dogs on Facebook so I could see what a great time they were having. The dogs were well taken care of and I will definitely use Gracelynn again.

Booked with GG because she was our first dog sitter a year ago. Moved and got new one but she was on vacation so asked GG and she took our two kids. One she knew. Other is new and wow they had an awesome time. Our puppy came back so tired in a good way. So many photo updates and great knowing they were happy. GG is great

Butkus' stay at Gracelynn was excellent as usual. I always get daily pictures which help with the separation and knowing he is being well cared for.
I just picked up my dog Fibi from GGs house and was so excited to see her. I never have left my dog and did not want her to stay in a kennel. Everyday without me asking, GG sent me texts and photos of Fibi. It felt so good to know she was in such great hands! She even let her on the bed with her because she knew that's where she slept at home! Her husband also babied her the whole week! I highly recommend GG. It's a lot of work taking care of all the dogs but she handles her job and the dogs so well!! What kennel would also put grated cheese in her food to make sure she ate? GG is an Angel! Thanks again! I will recommend you to everyone I know. Your the best!

Maximus LOVES going to GG's! It's like Disney Land for dogs, he has so much fun! Thank you GG
Excellent experience once again! Phoebe was well taken care of and we got the cutest pictures of her having a blast playing and swimming :-)
Henry loves Gigi!!!
Again, GG is the best, both doggies had a great time. Thanks for taking such good care of Bandit & Molly B.
GG does it again! Our 'Tink' had so much fun, she's been sleeping for two days since we picked her up!!! Thanks, once again, GG, for going the extra 10 miles for Tink. You are a treasure. Reenie, Dennis, & Tink
We have boarded our Shi-Tzu, Lucky, with Grace Lynn, several times. Lucky loves being there, because of all the canine buddies with which he has to play. Grace Lynn is such a great dog person. She knows how to be with her own dogs and the many dogs that are boarded with her. Grace Lynn sent us lots of photos of our dog, while we were away. She even bathed Lucky, prior to his being picked up. Lucky played so hard at Grace Lynn's, that he had to sleep most of his first day back home. This is the only place that we have boarded Lucky, since becoming residents of Port Saint Lucie, two years ago.

Gracie had a wonderful time and seemed relaxed and happy when we picked her up
We absolutely recommend & have complete faith in GG! From the moment we met at the meet & greet, I knew that her dog boarding was the right place for our 7 month old Lab, we had visited other home boarding. I must admit the Maximus has been spoilt & he has not been apart from me for more than 4 hours. I was concerned about leaving him & in less than an hour GG sent us a text message and photos letting us know how our boy was doing. We could not have been happier with the service! Thank you GG

Great as always, thanks for taking such good care of my 2 babies Molly & Bandit
GG is awesome! My dog comes home so tired, happy and clean. The daily pictures she sends make me smile, knowing that he is having fun. Thanks GG, for another week of fun for Casey, and a worry free vacation for me.
Gracelynn did a great job watching Andy. She sent us photos and texts during his stay. He came home tired and happy. Thank you!
My senior black lab/hound mix LOVES going to GG's house. He strts yelping as soon as we turn onto her street. He has bad separation anxiety, but not when we go to GG' house. He can't wait for me to leave so he can start having fun! We no sooner left her house when she texted us a picture of him in the pool with his buddies. This is our second visit and already have him booked in another few weeks. GG is the BEST!

Gracelynn (who we call Gigi) is a wonderful gift from God in our lives. Our lives revolved around our 2 bichon dogs and we would "never" travel if we hadn't discovered her through DogVacay. She's watched our 2 babies several times and they "LOVE" her and love going to her house. Our girls always come home happy and healthy whether they say with Gracelynn for one night or 10 nights. You won't find a better and more loving home than her's for watching your dogs.

Zues seemed to love his vacay with gigi. Will definitely take him back.
Gracelynn welcomed out two extremes, a 13 1/2 year old 14 lb Lakeland Terrier and a 2 year old 46 lb Irish Terrier into her home and made them both feel equally loved. They were happy and content when I picked them up after their first experience on a one day daycare. The pictures and comments she sent made us smile. We have already made a reservation with her for a weeklong vacation later this year and will treat our guys (and thus ourselves) to occasional play dates with GG between now and then.

This is our second year using GG while we vacationed on a cruise and Gracie not only remembered the house, she was so excited to see GG and all the fellow dogs! She was happy, just washed, and obviously well taken care of when we returned! GG sent us photos during our stay to show what activities she was doing and we were please to see how happy she was! We will definitely be using GG again and have already recommended her to others in the Port St Lucie area!

I can never say enough great things about Gracelynn. She takes such wonderful care of my dogs. Thanks again, GG, Bandit & Molly look forward to their next visit.
A great place for your dog! Gracelynn and her husband are dog lovers and they know all about dog personalities. Would not hesitate to take our dog back as needed.
GG was an excellent choice to take care of our Suki. Our dog is a bit shy,and she made a special effort to put Suki at ease. It's very obvious that GG loves dogs,and really cares about them. This made us a lot more comfortable about leaving Suki with a sitter for the first time. Wish we could give her ten stars!!

Great care of Lucky by GG. Could not have had a better Dog Vacay experience for Lucky. GG has three dogs of her own and she treats her boarded dogs with the same love and caring as she does her own.
Gigi,
Thank you so much for the loving care of my 3 pups. They were so excited to come back after our meet and greet! They have been sleeping ever since they got home. You have made this whole process so easy and we are truly grateful to have you as our pet sitter. We recommend you 100% and will tell everyone about you!
Thank you so much again & Happy New Years!

GG does it again! Our Tink so loves going to stay with GG; she comes home worn out from playing! This was the longest stay ever for Tink - 14 days, and she's done just fine. I'm sure we missed her more than she missed us, because GG takes such good loving care of her. She gets all the attention she can stand! Thank you, GG.

My dogs love going to Gracelynn's. She takes such good care of my babies. Thank you so much.
Jäger comes home exhausted! He loves spending time at her house, and we love that she treats him one of her own
Awesome as always. Nala loves vacationing with Gracelynn!
I love Gracelynn and so do my dogs. They had a wonderful vacation and came back very mellow & exhausted from their activities. They look forward to their new adventures with Gracelynn soon. Thanks so much for taking great care of my doggies.
Luke and Rudy came home tired and we received lots of pictures and updates, since this was the first time I've ever left my dogs with someone other then a family member, the pictures were great to sew. I will certainly continue to use Gigi in the future and will recommend her always.

I was lucky to find Gracelynn through DogVacay. She responded by phone to my email request almost immediately. She was warm and knowledgeable. I went to her house to check things out and realized right away she is a professional and dogs are her business. Her spotless environment is geared toward safety, health and happiness, from the fresh scent in her home to the safety gates, meet and greets and required immunizations. While my dogs stayed with her, she sent picture texts that showed how much fun they were having while playing with the other dogs and kept me up to date on how they were getting along. Gracelynn knows and loves dogs, your dog will have the best time staying her!
Read More...
Everything was simple as can be from the meet and greet, reservation, drop off and pick up. Gracelynn more than exceeded our expectations. Gibbs has been sleeping since we got home. I can tell he had a lot of fun. She sent pictures each day which was great. Will definitely be using regularly!

GG is the best! She sends pictures daily & she kept contacting via text while we were overseas. Highly recommended!!
This was the first time my Jack stayed with Gracelynn and it was fantastic. She and her husband treat the dogs as if they were all their own. Jack was very happy when I picked him up and he will be staying there many times in the future.
Awesome as always. Gracelynn is the best.
If my dogs could speak, they would say thank you Gracelynn for taking such good care of us. We love you. As for me, I am so grateful for the love and care Gracelynn gives to our dogs. Its' such a comfort to know that you can go away and your pets are in perfect hands. I just picked my pups up and they are happy to be home, but happy they had a great vacation at Graclynn's house. Thank you soooo much Gracelynn. Lynne P

We absolutely love GG, its so comforting to know that our baby is happy and in good hands while we are away. GG is always very accommodating with dates and times and we always get lots of pictures of her having fun with her friends and we love that. We know she loves it their too because she gets so excited and starts wagging her tail as soon as we turn onto her block.

Nala's stay with Gracelynn was incredible. We received photo updates of her swimming, playing and enjoying her time with the others fur kids. Nala was so excited to see GG when we arrived that there was no doubt that she loves it there. It's like her home away from home.

This is our second time with GG and we love staying with her while mom and dad take a short vacation. She provides lots of love and attention and there are playmates there too.!

GG is the best. We would never think of leaving our dogs with anyone else. They always come back healthy and happy.

Thanks GG

GG's place is great, dogs are well taken care of, places for them to run, play, swim, go in & out, get a drink. They love it there. Very clean & 'homey'. GG is excellent with the animals, understands them. Quite professional, as well. Highly recommended!

I use GG every month, approx. 10 days out of the month for my Taylee. GG is the best. She relieves my guilt of leaving Taylee. I know she is in good hands. I wont use anyone else. Thanks GG!
We can't say enough good things about Gracelynn and Nala's first stay. We did one night simply to get Nala familiar with her new vacation spot. She swam and played, played and swam. We received several photos of our happy girl having an amazing time at her beautiful tropical vacay spot. She was kept so busy that she slept from the time she arrived home until the next morning. Gracelynn, Thank you so much. I know Nala will be extremely well taken care of during our vacations.

phoebe had a fabulous stay! Thanks so much for taking great care of our pup!
As always, Triskette was in the best hands during our vacation. She loves going to Gigi's...very apparent by the way she runs off with the other dogs as soon as I get there. Gigi is just the best!!!!!Love having Triskette with her.
Gracelynn, GG, is a sweatheart. She knows her dogs. She took very good care of our 12 week old puppy. I only wish she did'nt let them play so rough as he came back home with his nose all scratched up.
This was my dogs second stay with Gracelynn and I can tell they definitely had a great time! First of all, when we got on her road, my oldest dog started getting excited because he remembered being at her house from the previous stay. That was a good indication to me that my dog really enjoyed being there the time before. Ever since I picked them up today, they have been sleeping, which indicates to me that they really had fun. I highly recommend her to anyone! She is so great with the dogs!

This was our first experience with leaving our dog, Gracie with anyone, particularly someone she didn't know well, and we could not have been more pleased!! Gracelynn was absolutely wonderful with our pup, and was loving and caring with her. We visited her home prior to leaving Gracie there for the week, and were very impressed with her home, the cleanliness, the cheerfulness of both the home and Gracelynn, as well as how organized and professional she was.
While we were gone, she sent us some messages and pictures to reassure us that Gracie was adjusting well. Gracie had the best time there!! We have already recommended her to family and friends and will definitely be using her again!!! Thank you Gracelynn!!!

This was my first time using DogVacay with Gracelynn. Butkus's stay great. Gracelynn even sent me pictures showing him socializing/playing with the other dogs and it eased my mind. I know I can leave him with Gracelynn and not feel guilty.
Gigi is great!!! Triskette loves staying at her house and we don't worry about her at all when she is there. It's like going to a daycare for kids. So much activity and Gigi loves them all . Very pleased that we found her.
Our 2 dogs had such a great time with Gracelynn. We enjoyed seeing the pictures of how much fun they were having. I was a little worried that they wouldn't want to leave because they had so much fun! I know my dogs and I could just tell that they really enjoyed their stay. We definitely plan to have Gracelynn petsit for us again in the future!!

I can't say enough about GG and how our Riley is treated when she vacations at GG's house!! Riley loves GG and is treated like one of the family! GG spoils Riley just like we do! Riley came home totally exhausted and has been sleeping all day long! GG is wonderful and we know Riley will look forward to her next visit! Thanks GG for loving our little girl and taking such good care of her while we were gone!!

She is absolutely incredible with Triskettete. I can tell how happy Trisk is there because she is in no way hesitant when I take her there to stay. And Gigi is just a doll!!! I know I have found the place for our baby whenever we need to be away, and I would highly reccomend to anyone who is looking for great pet care. Nancy

It was very apparent to me that Triskeete would be fine with Gracelynn because of the way she instantly took to her. Triskette obviously felt very esecure and happy with her. After being there for 10 days(first visit even) she came to us when we picked her up, but was also still anxious ato what Gracelynn was doing. I am thrilled to have someone so loving and kind to leave our dog with. Her atmosphere isreat and she took the time to share Triskette's visit with uswhile we were gone by sending photos. I just love her!!!!

Ohmygoodness! Gracelynn is the BEST! Being able to leave our 'Tinkerbell' over the Christmas holidays meant SO much to us. 'Tink' loves to visit and play with the other dogs, and we think Gracelynn must love her, too. GG takes the dogs for walks and to the new dog park nearby. As always, and with all the Christmas decorations up and food being cooked, plus the other dogs staying with her, the house was spotless. Thanks, again, GG, for caring for 'Tinkerbell' for us.

Our children's stay was great as always. They were extra tired when they got home which means they were playing all day. They are always happy at GG 's!!!!
GG, thank you, thank you, thank you. My dogs had a fabulous time, they came home exhausted but very happy. I can't tell you how grateful I am that my dogs were so well cared for and loved. I will always call you when I have to leave my little guys because I know you will care for them as if they were your own. Thanks again, you are a blessing. Regards, Lynne & Mark

Rage had a great time at GG's as always. She is always so excited when we drop her off and tired out when we pick her up.
Excellent, it was like a vacation for our dog. We highly recommend Gracelynn !
Once again GG out did herself. Our Riley went running in greeted GG and was ready to play with all of the other guests on vacation! It's all too obvious how GG is loved by all of these dogs and it's mutual! GG treats each dog as if they were her special family member. When we picked Riley up she was happy, healthy, and clean from her bath. While she was happy to see us I know she had the best time at GG's house and she will return in jan. For more love, personal attention and lots of fun! Thank you GG for being such a wonderful mom to our Riley. By the way, Riley came home totally exhausted and has slept most of the day!

Gracelynn provides a Wonderful atmosphere for my pets. I first had Gracelynn watch my dog (and she was my first dog sitter so I was a little uncomfortable) but my dog was worn out by her because he had so much fun. Next time he went, he was extra excited to see her because he knew he had a good time with her. Her place is extra clean and lots of room for animals and a nice outside portion! She also provided service for my cat (who thinks he is a dog) so he got along with all of the dogs and was happily cared for. I highly recommend Gracelynn for your needs. She's amazing!! :-D

we were greeted warmly by GG and it made riley very comfortable. she hadn't been to GG's since our meet and greet a few months ago. I will now talk in Riley's voice! if I could I would want to go and play at GG's house every day!!! I had such fun with all of the other dogs that were on vacation and I wish my mommy and daddy would go on more vacations so I could stay at GG's all the time. i'm spoiled rotten at home and it was the same at GG's house. I had the best time ever and I can't wait to go back. Guess, what, my mommy and daddy are going on another vacation next week so I get to go back and play for two weeks this time!!!
as a puppy parents we couldn't ask for a better experience for our little spoiled girl!! it's obvious that GG loves what she's doing and each dog is catered to. we LOVE GG!!!!

GG is great with dogs--she loves them and truly gets them. Lucky, our six year old Shi-Tzu, had a great time with GG's three dogs and all the others boarded with him. We knew from the "meet 'n greet" that Lucky would be in doggie heaven at GG's and we were right. Should you want an exceptional person with whom to board your best friend, look no further than GG in Port St. Lucie.

OHMYGOODNESS! If Gracelynn were any more perfect for our "Tink" and for us, she would need wings! Thank you, again, GG. Reenie, Dennis, & Tink
This was the first time my 'kids' stayed with GG and I highly recommend her doggie day-care services. GG and her family are definatlely dog people. My cocker spaniel and min pin were invited into her home with open arms and treated like their own. She has a free-range home, so your dogs are not caged up. She has a well-groomed, secure, fenced backyard, so there is plenty of outdoor play area well as a pool if your dog is a swimmer. GG emailed daily pictures of my dogs playing. She even gave them a bath the day prior to pickup so they would smell nice for mommy. My dogs eat raw, GG had no issues with their dietary needs.
Both 'kids' came home exhausted, which met they had an awesome time. Lady and Ace look forward to their next stay GG's.

GG watched my two dogs that are hyperactive and very loving. My dogs are also skiddish sometimes as they get scared very easily. They both felt very comfortable during the meet and greet and were so excited to meet GG, her family, and her dogs. Overall, GG is the best experience I could give them as I leave for the weekend and I hope I can use her every time! THANK YOU GG and family for loving my dogs, caring for them, and allowing their unique personalities to shine!

Rage loves it at GG's house, this is her second time staying there and she was all excited and happy when we pulled up to drop her off. GG and her family are so sweet and caring they made the decision to leave her there very easy for us. I love how she send us pictures of Rage while we are away too. Definitely would recommend her.

GG (Gracelynn) has been the best experience we could ask for! Our two current dogs have never been left with anyone but family up til now. GG is a gem of a dog person who sent us photos almost daily, even bathed and brushed them before we picked them up and probably spoiled them on attention. My wife and I were truly impressed and have found the only place we will leave our dogs when necessary.
THANK YOU GG!

I am completely satisfied with my decision to leave Bella with GG for a few days. It was exactly as anticipated-a doggy vacation! Upon dropping her off, I knew right away Bella was in great hands. GG is the epitome of a dog lover making it that much greater, not to mention very patient with the pups which is the best in my opinion. She accommodates to your pups needs which is a huge plus, too! I usually leave Bella at a doggy hotel, which can be pricey, but even if GG's prices weren't as affordable as they are I still wouldn't hesitate to chose her instead, knowing what I do now. Also I loved being sent a couple pictures to see how much fun Bella was having during her stay. When I came to pick her up I could tell she didn't even want to leave. That sealed the deal for me! Overall quite a lovely lady! I know where to go from now on and I hope others will too. I could say much, much more but I think this sums it up! :-)

Once again, Gracelynn has taken exceptional care of our Tink! We feel so fortunate to have found her, and Tink loves her and her family. We can't say enough good things - from the obvious safety of the fenced backyard, complete with a pool for water-loving dogs, to the engineered wood floors without carpets so no accident is a disaster, to the pet gates allowing freedom in most parts of her home - to the immaculate presence in the home. All great and all from Gracelynn and her terrific personal care. It's so obvious she truly loves dogs. Thanks, Gracelynn.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.....rest assured your pets are more than taken care of when they stay with GG. I don't have to worry anymore when I drop off my dog Bruce now that I've found her. She treats him just like the baby that he is!!! He is always anxious to go inside and see his other "friends". Nothing like being able to go away even if it's just for a night and know that your dog is in great hands. Thank you again GG!

As usual Harley, my German Shorthaired Pointer had a blast with GG. Beach trips and all and upon return she was happy to see me and sad to end her vacay. Thanks! GG Bo Wemm
Sadie had a great time at her doggie vacay with Gracelynn. She made lots of new friends and was very sad to leave. It was great for us to enjoy our vacation getting pics and updates on how she was doing.
What a great experience for our dog, he has never had the joys of playing with other dogs, and never had the benefits of a fenced in back yard to play. GG said he did great, he loved his new friends he made.. You can tell that the entire family loves dogs and he was well taken care of.. her daily emails and pictures of Champ with other dogs made us feel good knowing he was in good hands.. He was even little depressed when I brought him home to an empty house with no playmates. SO glad we found GG and her wonderful family and her pets. Will definitely use her again, and even for quick little over night trips

GG is amazing. My girls had a blast. This was my first time using GG and I will definately use her again. She took such good care of my two dogs, even washed their beds. I never had to worry with daily pictures being sent.
Once again, no disappointments for my Bruce while staying with GG. I was also sent the most adorable picture of him sleeping on a Karonda bed looking happy as a clam. He played and romped with all his "friends" and came home exhausted, and that's a good thing! Means he had a blast. I'm so grateful to GG for her loving care of my dog and will always be staying with her in the future.

OHMYGOODNESS! We could not have asked for a better 'Mom' for our Tink! Gracelynn (GG) is marvelous with the dogs, our Tink included. The home is set up so well to accommodate the dogs - gates on all the inside doorways to contain the dogs in a spacious area, but allow them to see through to the other home areas. Clean wood floors that are swept twice daily (the house is spotlessly clean). Nicely kept and fenced backyard, even with a pool for those more aquatic type pets. And daily walks. Tink stayed for 11 days, and seemed to enjoy every minute. She loved playing with GG's 'Shorty,' and definitely was either worn out or missed him the day we brought her home. She slept the day away! We will definitely use GG whenever our travels dictate that we can't take Tink with us. Thanks, GG, for taking such good care of Tink.

We were a little nervous about leaving our 5 and a half month old lab for the first time but GG made us feel at ease. We did a meet and greet first to be sure and I soon knew this was the best place to leave our precious puppy. We loved getting updates and pics of him and could tell he had a great time!

She is the best. I wouldn't go with anyone else.
GG is the best. She treats each dog as her own family member.
GG was wonderful and helped relieve any anxiety we had about leaving Darbee, Rylie and Sophie for a week. We are very particular about their care. They are our "children". I was pleased that they seemed very happy there. Thank you, GG
We had a wonderful experience with GG while leaving our 40lb. Vizsla with her over Spring Break! What a joy it was to meet her. She has a true gift and we felt very blessed to have found her! Our dog is very sensitive and maybe a bit spoiled. We didn't want to leave him to go on vacation because we thought he would be so sad in a kennel. When he stayed with GG, he was so happy!!! He had so much fun playing in her big yard with his new doggie friends and she even has a pool. He ate well the whole week ( a true test of his comfort level) and GG even let him sleep in her bed at night! GG sent us pictures and texts throughout the week to let us know how much fun Miles was having on his own little doggy vacay! I am so sad that GG lives so far away. If we lived closer we would take him there weekly for sure! Thank you for going above and beyond for our sweet boy. Until our next vacation...we will ALL miss you, especially Miles!!!

the only thing I can say once again is that GraceLynn isw amazing. Rusty had the best time again and to let you know that she is the only one that I would bring our dog to. Sh gives so much love and care. You can see how much the dogs love her and so do my husband and myself.

We are so lucky. Once you meet her you will love her and your dog will love her.

WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL The dogs did very well. GG is wonderful...it is a great place to have the dogs stay when we are away!!! Love her!!!
Gracelynn is wonderful. Our dog's Molly and Roxie love being there. It is there home away from home. She is wonderful and our dogs are well cared for...we all just love her!!! Thank you GG!!!!
GG is a godsend!!! My new rescue dog stays with GG about ten days out of the month. GG treats her as her own. I feel happy and secure at the site of my dog wiggling her butt and wagging her tail when she gets to GG's house. Taylee is a high energy dog and needs a lot of attention. GG and her whole family give plenty of love and exercise to make sure Taylee has a good day. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs dog boarding.

GG was amazing! If you need to board your dog anywhere around Jensen beach, I would highly recommend her to anyone. She took wonderful care of my puppy, and has an amazing home- both inside and out, that your dog will love to run around in. She took pictures throughout the time he stayed there, so I could catch up on what he was up to. She is very friendly, and truly loves dogs. I will definitely board with her again! THANK YOU GG!

Don't hesitate to have your "babies" stay with Gracelynn! This is my Bruce's 2nd time and just like the first, I couldn't be happier. She gives him so much love and attention. When we were 3 blocks from her house when I dropped him off, he already started to get excited! Thank God for Gracelynn and her love for animals. You won't be disappointed!

I will use Gracelynn again in a heartbeat!! She is a very caring woman and understood that I would have a harder time then Buddy would at the time away from each other. This was the first time Buddy and I have been apart for more then 12 hours. She made sure he was happy and loved. I got picture updates that made me feel better. I can not say enough about how truly grateful I am that Buddy was so well loved for his stay with her. Thank you sooooo much Gracelynn.

Wonderful!!!!! My dogs were very happy and so were we. She is WONDERFUL!!!
As before, Gracelynn's care of my dog Harley went above and beyond the expected. Harley always looks forward to visiting.
GiGi is the best experience I have in regard to dog sitting. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect experience for their dog in their absence. She is a caring concerned host with a wonderful "playground" yard perfectly suited for a good experience for your dog. She always went the extra mile for my little girl Harley even to the point of providing a warm lap to sleep on (see pictures on her site). Thanks GiGi you're the best, from me and Harley.
Highly recommend Dogvacay.com and especially GIGI.

We are so pleased that we found Gracelynn to take care of our dog Hank. She is loving and caring and treated Hank like her own. It made going on vacation much easier knowing that he would be in an environment just like home. We will definitely use her again, I wish we had found her years ago. Thank you again for taking such good care of Hank.

Gracelynn is absolutely the best person for dogs and people. We have taken Rusty our Golden Retriever to her 4 times now and will keep on taking him. She is the warmest person to my husband and I and more importantly Rusty. He loves being with her. I cannot believe how fortunate we were to have found her. Your company is very lucky to have her. Anyone who needs dog care and dog sitting Gracelynn is for you. You will be as lucky as we are. Thank you again Gracelynn you are the best ever!!!!

I can't say enough good things to describe Gracelynn and her caring so well for my dog Bruce. I knew from the moment I met her she was a "dog" person and we were in good hands. I called everyday to check on my boy and never was made to feel like I was bothering her. She gave me detailed updates and I was free to ask any questions I may have had. I feel I've found a miracle in Gracelynn, as it is so tough to find someone who cares for my pet the way I would. Thank you so much Gracelynn and we'll be back next weekend! You're the best!!!

Rusty just loves it there ... we'll be back!
This was Jackson's second visit to Gracelynn's. He remembered being there and nearly yanked my arm off to get inside her house! He got to swim everyday and had several friends to play with which is like heaven to him! He had as much of a vacation as we did! Gracelynn is still number one in my book! It's obvious that Jackson is very fond of her... she is just a natural animal lover! Thank you to DogVacay and Gracelynn for making our vacation worry-free! We will definitely use Gracelynn again!

Overall Good Experience
Rusty appears to have enjoyed the pool, hot tub and beach!
Wow! Where to begin? Gracelyn oozes with a true love for animals. She actually researched the breed of our dog before we had a pre-meeting with her! Jackson, our dog, had a ball at her house as he swam, enjoyed her three dogs, took many dog walks and had a genuine doggy vacation! He literally did not want to come home at pick-up time as that pool kept drawing him closer like a magnet! We were able to enjoy our vacation knowing that Jackson was in such loving and trusting hands! We will definitely use Gracelyn again.... she is FANTASTIC!

GG was amazing with Spud!! She kept me updated sent me pictures, bathed him and clipped his nails. I felt at complete ease knowing he was in good hands! Would highly recommend her to anyone with a dog in need of a sitter!!!!!!
My wife and I were very pleased with the pictures and personal contact we received during Rusty's stay. Rusty appears to have enjoyed the pool and contact with Gracelynn's other dogs. It is a nice dog-friendly home that we intend to use again!
Gracelynn is a real gem. I was extremely pleased. Will use her over and over. She has a lot of patience and treats your animals like if they were hers. I cannot say enough except thank you. Very professional. You will be extremely happy and pleased using Gracelynn.

Gracelynn was great with our dog Titus. Titus had a great time swimming in the pool and interacting with Gracelynn, her family, and other dogs. She was great handling Titus, as he can sometimes be a handful! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a place for their dog to stay for a few days! For my next vacation, Titus will definetly be visiting again!

Gracelynn was FANTASTIC. She was accommodating to all of our needs (our little guy is pretty spoiled). In addition she provided photos and answered all my calls. Her home is very neat and clean as well. We will definitely use her services in the future and would recommend her to all pet owners.
