About Cara

I have had a passion for animals since I was a child and this love for animals has grown over the years. I own a dog and he is extremely well taken care of. I am able to provide the same amount of love and care for your dog as I do it for my own. My comprehension of the needs of dogs, is outstanding. From feeding them right food to walking and exercising them daily. I just love to play with them and take them on long trail walks.......

Cara was amazing. Our dog came back better trained than when we left her. She cared for our dog like it was her own. She sent us pictures and updates through the stay so we didn't have to worry while on vacation. Many thanks!!
I picked up one happy pup from Cara today. Portia had a wonderful vacation this past weekend. She's been napping since she came home, which means she had a great time with Cara & her family, including Bailey! Thank you so much, Cara!
Once again, we were able to spend a weekend away from home without worrying about Portia. Our little fur baby is "right at home" with Cara and her fur baby, Bailey. We are so thankful to have "found" Cara and even happier to call her friend. Thank you so much, Cara!
Another wonderful stay without worry! Thank you, Cara!!
Portia's stay with Cara was just as I expected....absolutely wonderful! Portia is made to feel like a member of Cara's loving family, which is why I never hesitate to book a getaway if I know Cara is available to care for her. Thank you Cara and DogVacay!
We feel so lucky to have connected with Cara. She is professional, warm and caring. Our 12 year old Nicky needs insulin and anticonvulsant meds twice a day. Cara maintained his med schedule and updated us daily with photos and/or comments showing Nicky enjoying his time while we were enjoying our vacation. She really put our minds at ease and we would absolutely recommend her to other families. Cara is wonderful!
So amazing to not feel guilty leaving our little Jio. Cara was so loving and caring, upbeat and such a joy to work with. Jio came home perfectly happy, that was a first. Highly recommend Cara...Thanks for taking such great care of our little guy...
Portia had another awesome weekend with Cara and Bailey! It's so nice to have the perfect place to leave Portia while we are away. Thanks Cara (& Bailey)!
So great to have my boy cared for like I would. The pics and text messages really made me feel so relaxed that my Jio was being loved and having such a great time. Totally trust and appreciate Cara, and will definitely have my fingers crossed that she will be able to have him the next time we are away.
Another happy stay! Highly recommend!!!
Comfortable leaving our dog with Cara again. Charlie becomes part of her family when he is staying there. Loved the updates and photos we received while on our vacation. Cara is Awesome!! Its no wonder why she has so many 5-star reviews and repeat guests. So glad we found Dogvacay.com and Cara.
We loved having Cara watch Layla for the week! Our dog felt right at home, made fast friends with her dog Bailey and was completely comfortable. It was our first time leaving her, so our dog was sad and depressed and missing us the first day. But Cara made sure she was comfortable, gave her lots of attention which our dog loves, and called to let us know updates about her. We loved getting all the photos/texts while we were away and knowing that Layla was happy and content. We will definitely use her again next time!
Cara is the best, takes such good care of my dog, he is so happy to go to her, think he wanted to stay there when I picked him up. She is the best!
Cara is awesome!!! She was such a gem to find. Unfortunately we are moving and I can't take her with us. It will be very difficult to fill her shoes! Every time we left Willow I knew that she would be loved and very we'll take care of. Thanks Cara!
It was nice to go away for the night and know that Portia was with "family". Cara is the best!!
Cara is outstanding!!!
I would really like to say it was horrible, no one should use her etc.. - this way there will always be room for my dog - ( LOL) but I can't lie like that -

I have an English mastiff with special needs - he's scared of everything - especially people but when he is at "Aunt Cara's" I never think twice about it. I know he is so loved, so well cared for, that he's having such a good time - she is always texting me pics. This is by far the BEST place to leave your pooch!
the best! as always!
as always - amazing!! She is the best!
Another great stay! Highly recommend!
After two years of searching for a place to keep my special needs dog I finally found Cara. This is the first time I left Remy for a week and never even thought twice. The pics and videos just solidified what I already knew- Remy was having a blast!

Cara is by far the best dog sitter ever! Thank you dogvacay!
Once again my husband and I were able to go away for the weekend and not worry about Portia. She was at her "home away from home" with Cara. It's nice to know Portia is with her "special family" when we are away. Thank you so much Cara! xoxo
As always "Aunt" Cara took great care of me. I also have a new BFF - her dog Bailey. I'm looking forwards to my next visit. xoxo Portia PS. Mommy & Daddy are so happy that I love it there.
Will defenetly choose her service again. I got updates and pictures everyday My dog look like she enjoyed her walks and company. Thank u so much for taking care of my baby I can tell she was in good hands
Our dog couldn't have been better taken care of, Cara is fantastic, I didnt think he wanted to come home. She is caring and loving and he really took to her right away. She is just fantastic and highly recommended
This was Portia's second time staying with Cara. Portia really seems to love her "Aunt" Cara and is very relaxed when I drop her off. It's so nice to know that our "child" is in good hands while we are away. We know that Portia is getting love from Cara and her family, including her dog Bailey.
Cara was great. She watched our dog for 8 days and it was great to know Suki was in such great care. We got pics and updates daily. It's great to know such a service exists and you're able to leave your dog in such trusting, reliable, caring hands. Would definitely leave our dog with Cara again. She's our first choice.
Within minutes of meeting Cara, I knew I found the right place for Portia to stay. Cara is so sweet and caring. She treats her "guests" well and makes them feel right at home. I received text updates and photos the whole time we were away. It helped us enjoy our weekend away, knowing that Portia was safe and loved. We've already booked another weekend with Cara and will continue to use her services.
Cara is the best! Plain and Simple! You can't get a better dog sitter than her! My dog, Remy, is scared of people - he goes happily to her and from the pics she sends I know he's having a great time!

It took me almost two years to find someone I could leave Remy with without worry. I am so so happy I finally found Cara!
Thank you dogvacay for having such an amazing dog sitter!
Cara was so great with our dog Sadie. She sent me lots of updates and pictures. I just knew that Sadie was being well taken care of and was in very good hands. I would not hesitate to leave Sadie with Cara and her family again.
This is our second time leaving our dog with Cara. She cares for him as if he were her own. She texted pictures while we were away and we could see that he was comfortable and having a great time. We were able to vacation without worry.

Before finding Happy Dog on this site, we visited some kennels and even an expensive pet hotel. Nothing compares to leaving your pet in Cara's home. Highly recommend.
Cara is the best! I am so relaxed knowing that my dog is staying with her. Remy has special needs and it has taken me two years to find someone like her, Thank you dogvacay and thank youCara!
Highly recommend!! We met prior and immediately felt comfortable using her service. Wonderful family and her well-trained, lovable dog put us at easy in leaving Charlie in her caring home. We already booked Charlie for another stay!!
Cara is the best! My dog, Remy, has special needs and Cara did such a fantastic job with him. She updated me with pics throughout his stay. I am just thrilled to have found her.
