About Chuck & Dawn

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi I am Chuck. Welcome to Grandpaw's Doggie Care.

I have been watching and taking care of dogs for several years. Since my retirement I have been working with and taking care of other dogs from Schnauzer to Great Danes. This has given me a great sense of joy and accomplishment.

I prefer medium to small dogs however if you have a large dog lets have a meet and greet where we can discuss your dogs needs.

*** PLEASE READ THE WHOLE PROFILE***

I do require a meet and greet for first time stays. Please set up a meet and greet so that we can meet each other and I can meet your dogs. The request button is on the right of the screen.

Chuck and Dawn took great care of our dog and our neighbor's dog while we took a trip. Our dogs had a great time, and Chuck was very flexible on drop-off and pickup times.
As always Chuck provided excellent service for our poor anxious rescue. He cried and cowered for most of the visit, but has resumed his happy ways on our return. We look forward to using Chuck and Dawn in the future. Rollie
Excellent visit. They took very good care of our boys.
We would use them again.
Very dog friendly - the whole family participates
We love that Chuck and Dawn are so close to our home. She loves going there. Bella and Pippin are great daytime companions for her.
Chuck and Dawn took great care of my mini Aussie Byron. I made my reservation last minute and they were very accommodating. When I arrived at their house they were welcoming and had a great system of introducing my dog to their house during the meet and greet, then once he was acclimated they brought in their dogs to meet him as well. Their Pug and full Aussie were both friendly, and Byron seemed to feel at home rather quickly which doesn't always happen for him. Chuck was very responsive to my texts, and kept me updated while Byron was with him. I would not hesitate to have them watch my dog again in the future.

Second great visit with Chuck. We got feedback how the day went and how everyone got along. I am so happy to have found a host I feel comfortable leaving my dogs with.
Awesome
Great experience. Chuck gave us good feedback on how the dog's behaved during their stay.That is something we haven't received from a our previous experience with a dog daycare facility. The doggies seem to have a great time and we plan on being returning guests.

Chuck agreed to a "Meet and Greet" on short notice to help me out in a pinch even though my dog was a bit larger than his stated preference. He allowed my dog to investigate the yard and house following the lead of Pippin, the pug. My dog seemed very comfortable with Chuck and Dawn's two dogs and the set-up. (He was so comfortable that he sat down and didn't want to leave at the end of the Meet and Greet.) Chuck watched carefully and let me know what signs he was looking for that my dog would be a good fit to stay with them. Communication was quick and responsive on the Internet. My dog had a good time with the dogs and grandchildren. I had no worries while I was gone, and my dog was happy and healthy on my return.

Great host! We needed last-minute care for Christmas and Chuck responded to my message and meet-n-greet request very promptly. He's great with dogs (and people) and the resident dogs are very sweet. My shy girl clearly felt comfortable staying here. I would have Freya stay here again any time and would definitely recommend this sitter to my friends.

We were in need of a somewhat last minute place to have our maltese/yorkie mix stay over Thanksgiving. Because we had had a rather negative experience at a boarding facility, plus a 3 day minimum for holidays (we only needed overnight), we looked at other options and found Chuck and Dawn on DogVacay. From the first to last step of the process, Chuck was super fast to respond, very professional and extremely personable. We picked Bella up a short time ago and she was super happy and seemed to have had a great stay. Chuck and Dawn's own two dogs are super sweet as well. We look forward to Bella's future stays with Chuck and Dawn and won't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

Chuck and Dawn are wonderful! I know my dogs feel like it is a second home when they are there. I can relax knowing they care for my babies as much as I do. Thanks Chuck and Dawn for another great worried free vacation.
Great hosts! And my Aussie loves their Aussie! Will be back.
They are wonderful! I know my dogs are loved.
They are Amazing! They helped me immensely when I had a last min. change in my schedule. They send me wonderful pictures of my dogs. I know my dogs are treated like family when I am away. I would recommend them to anyone
We really had a wonderful experience with Chuck and Dawn. It was wonderful knowing my babies were in great, capable hands while we were away. That peace of mind is priceless. Thanks so much Chuck and Dawn!
Jade is a nervous nellie when it comes to fireworks and Chuck was very gentle and understanding in dealing with her. It was a pleasure to leave her there.
Chuck and Dawn were wonderful with Iggy. Iggy is a very cautious little guy and was hesitant going into the house. When I went to pick him up he was a very different. He was very comfortable with the family and had bonded with their little grand-daughter. I wouldn't hesitate taking him back if I needed a sitter for him.

Chuck and Dawn were great hosts! This was last minute and they could not have been more accommodating. Our puppy enjoyed their dogs and came back as happy as ever!
Chuck and Dawn were both awesome! They are both very knowledgeable and loving towards the dogs in their care. They were also easy to work with for scheduling. I highly recommend!
I was very happy with Bella's experience at Chuck and Dawn's. I wanted to find someone who knew about little dogs and pugs specifically. I wanted to keep Bella in a family home, as opposed to a sterile and impersonal kennel, since pugs crave family interaction. Chuck and Dawn were both welcoming to Bella and Chuck took a lot of care in introducing Pippin, their own pug, and (big) Bella, their lovable Austrailian shepherd. My (Little) Bella settled in quickly, making herself at home in a waterfall feature in the back. Chuck sent us pictures of little Bella lounging on one of the chaise lounges, truly enjoying her stay, like she was on her own vacay. The thing that I liked the most was the care and detail that Chuck took with Bella keeping her calm, cool, and collected over the 4th of July. It's wonderful to know your dog is being cared for by a family who treat your dog like their own.

What a great time my dogs had at Chuck and Dawn's house. They lounged around just like they were on vacation! We can tell they had great care. And getting pics everyday relieved our anxiety. Will absolutely use them again. This service is so much better then a corporate choice. Our dogs feel like they have a second home due to all the attention and love they got.

Great hosts! They responded really quick and was willing to take in Milo when we were ready to give up on finding someone to take care of our little guy Milo. Chuck sent pixes and updates on Milo's status and was good at checking with me about his needs. I will definitely use them again in future if we go on a trip and don't have anyone to watch Milo.

It would appear my dog Jade is comfortable in Chuck and Dawn's home. Where else can a dog sleep on another's bed in genuine comfort? Seriously, it is a pleasure to be able to leave her in Chuck's care. The location of his home is convenient for me and Jade likes to be there. I am sure I'll be calling on Chuck's assistance in the future.

Chuck and his wife watched our two dogs for about a week. He was great with our dogs. You can see that he really has experience handling dogs. He also spent extra time pampering our one dog that just had surgery.
These folks did a great job with Tippy. She had even been brushed and looked so nice when I picked her up. I am very likely to request their services again; I would highly recommend them to others.
Jade was very comfortable with Chuck and Dawn and their two dogs. While she was glad to see me when I arrived to pick her up, she didn't act like she had been abandon and had given me up for lost as she has in the past! I am extremely satisfied by the experience.
