About Caroline

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Exclusive dog boarding and pet sitting services. We're a regular family in a home and we love dogs! We have no resident dogs, are committed to taking no more than two dogs at a time, and have lots of love to give. We will treat your best friend like our best friend.

Your dog will have free reign of our downstairs, be able to sleep where she wants to sleep and will get lots of individual love and attention.

We have a large pesticide free yard. We love to go in the backyard and play. We love going for long walks. One of our favorite things is taking our new friend over to the rec center for a walk around the loop. We also walk locally on some of our quiet side streets. If your dog would prefer to stay at home and relax, we're okay with that too.

We have 2 small children who adore dogs. They will help shower love and attention on your dog. We just need your dog to love children too.

We also love cuddles on the couch and floor and will snuggle and love your dog like he is our own. We will make sure your pup has a great time and a lot of R&R.

I'll send picture updates throughout the day or as often as requested!

I understand how important a proper diet is for your pup, and whatever instructions we are given will be closely followed.

I am almost always home however I do occasionally need to leave for 1-2 hours. Your dog must be okay being left for short periods of time without becoming destructive.

All dogs must be completely house trained. No puppies under 2. For everyone's safety, all dogs must be up to date on all shots/ vaccines. I do require proof of veterinary care. Please bring a copy of latest records.

We are looking forward to a day or week of fun with your dog. Come meet us and we'd love to meet you!

* The overnight boarding rate covers a 24 hour period. Additional charges will apply beyond 24 hours. Please include drop off and pick up times in your reservation request. Also dogs must be picked up before 7:00 PM.

*We will take 2 dogs if both dogs are friendly with other dogs. If your dog is a loner, please let us know and we will try to accommodate that. We do ask for flexibility if dates overlap.

Rosie had her first stay with Caroline and her family on Saturday. We were in town for a family party with a houseful of people and I needed a place for Rosie to stay during the party. I dropped Rosie with Caroline for day care and it worked out perfectly!! Caroline could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. And she sent me text with pictures during the day to let me know Rosie was having fun and in good hands. I was so happy to find Caroline - and we are already booked for a second daycare stay when we come to town in October. I live in Boston, and I'm only sad she doesn't live near me :) Thanks again Caroline (and family!).

Our dog Abbey had a great vacation at Caroline's house. Caroline gave us updates throughout the week by sending pictures to my phone. From playing around in the backyard, sleeping gracefully in the living room, to playing in the sprinkler with Caroline's children in the front yard, I was able to see how much attention and love Caroline and her family were giving Abbey throughout the week. When I picked Abbey up at the end of her stay, I don't think she wanted to leave! Caroline is very professional, prompt, detail oriented, and a pleasant person to have as a dogsitter. I highly recommend her services.

Caroline is fantastic! If you're looking for a great family to take care of your dog, this is it. She is professional, trustworthy and very kind. She will send multiple daily updates and pictures, clearly loves dogs and I know my Dex gets lots of love and hugs (especially from her kids!) while at Caroline's house. He always comes home tired and happy. Our boy also has food allergies and she is also very attentive to his issues. I highly recommend Caroline's services to anyone who is looking for a safe and happy place to leave your pup!

Another fantastic experience for our very family-oriented dog!!!
Caroline did a great job on very short notice (the same day in fact!). My lab liked her immediately and I enjoyed getting pix and video of her visits texted to my phone while I was away. I would definitely do this again!
We have a very challenging dog (Cali) and Caroline was fantastic with her. Since we also have 2 cats, we had Caroline do daily visits while we were away for a week. When first meeting Caroline, she exuded a very calm and capable presence - which put us at ease with leaving our crazy Cali in her care. She checked in with us frequently and gave us daily updates. We were able to relax and enjoy our trip without worrying because we knew our pets were in excellent hands.

Caroline was professional, polite, and was easy to communicate with while planning our vacay. She took great care of our boy and sent photos and videos of him playing and snuggling with the family. We were initially very hesitant to try a new dog sitting arrangement but after meeting Caroline and her family prior tof his stay, we were confident that he was in good, safe hands! Fairly priced and honest from start to finish! We would send our pup to vacay with Caroline anytime!

At the very last minute, I engaged Caroline to stop by and walk my dogs as I had to be away from home for a good part of the day. She was incredibly responsive and she did an absolutely fabulous job. I have a large and small dog. When I came home they were happy, content, properly sleepy and well emptied. I was impressed with her service and will be calling on her often, including for day care in her home and possibly sleep overs as well. I enthusiastically recommend Caroline for pet care

When you are going away and you need to leave you beloved dog with someone to care for them, it can be quite a difficult decision. Caroline made my decision easy. As soon a Mila, my dog, and I met her, we knew everything was going to be ok. Caroline loves animals. I received daily texts and photographs telling and showing me how happy Mila was. Caroline invited her into her home with her beautiful family and made Mila feel comfortable and loved. She walked Mila several times a day for exercise. I could not find a better person to care for Mila. The next time we go away, I know for sure will Mila will go. Thank you Caroline for taking such great care of my baby!

Caroline is a very nice person and sincerely cares about dogs. She was very good about staying in touch and sending photos and reassuring emails. Our dogs were calm, rested and happy after we left them in her excellent hands for one week. I was very impressed with her professionalism and kindness and the dogs liked her right away and they are excellent judges of character.

Our Bernese Mountain Dog Rocky has found his home away from home. Leaving him has always been the most stressful part of our vacations and now that we have found Caroline and her family we will no longer have any worries. Rocky fit right into their family and came home happy and tired. Rocky is a family dog and knowing that he had children to play with and got lots of love and cuddles is fantastic. Caroline was very quick to respond to my texts and sent many photos so we could see Rocky's happy face. I could not have asked for more. Thanks!

We found our home away from home for our puppy Olive! Caroline and family welcomed our puppy
into their home and took such great care of her.
We loved the daily updates of photos on their walks and story time snuggling on the sofa!
We are so happy to have found this great spot and will be visiting again soon!
Many thanks for your wonderful care.

Caroline is a lovely person and devoted dog lover who tends our English cocker Rosie like she was her own. And with the help of her two dear children, she makes sure that she is hugged and walked and played with all day. I highly recommend Caroline for your next day care.

Thank you Carline and family for keeping and loving Mo-Z for another stay! As we were very busy with a family event, we honestly only thought about him when you sent those wonderful photos. My girls were so happy Mo-Z had your children to play with!
Thank you for his Halloween bandana and goodie bag, too! We'll see you again -- another family event is coming up in the New Year.

Caroline and her entire family were so welcoming and loving toward my Bichon, Lily, that I would HIGHLY recommend her. Because it was my first time using DogVacay and Lily's first time staying with someone beyond our family members, I was a bit anxious. Caroline understood and sent me pictures and updates regularly which put my mind at ease. Lily bonded with her immediately and followed her everywhere! It is clear that Caroline and her family are true dog lovers who understand and LOVE dogs. I was able to relax and truly enjoy my vacation knowing that Lily was in such good hands. I can't thank Caroline enough! I will definitely use her again.

We took our 6 month old English cocker spaniel, Rosie, for a meet and greet with Caroline at her home and were so pleased that we brought her for an afternoon a few days later. Rosie is very shy, Caroline's warmth and friendly manner won Rosie over. She clearly enjoyed being with Caroline and her two lovely young children. Caroline's home is lovely and well-designed for dog-sitting, with easy access to a deck and backyard. She sent me texts and photos of a happy Rosie sitting in the grass. We plan to board with Caroline in a few weeks, so we can attend an out-of-state wedding.

This is Poppy's second visit with Caroline's family. She was so happy to see them, and like last time, was treated like a member of the family. What a terrific option for no-worry dog care.
We are home with Mo-Z after his 4-day stay with Caroline and her family. Mo-Z is a rambunctious and mischievous Portuguese Water Dog who needs to be in the middle of family life. Caroline knew how to handle him, kept him buzy and active, and her children loved and played with him. Seeing picture updates of Mo-Z cuddling with Caroline and her children, playing, and sleeping in various corners of the house gave my family great comfort. I have to say, we didn't feel a bit of guilt on our vacation!

Our Mo-Z spent his first night with Caroline and her family while I was out of town leaving my husband to arrange everything. Caroline helped him with details, accommodated his busy schedule, and arranged for a seamless drop off and pick up. Mo-Z's first-time experience with someone he didn't know was fabulous -- full of attention, fun, and love. We appreciated Caroline's updates and pictures. Mo-Z settled in and was part of the family!

Caroline and her family were great!!! Bailey loves getting attention from people and cuddling time and I´m sure she had a lot of it with her kids. She even got a goodie bag!!! I´m so happy I found Caroline, will use her services again.
Our dog had a wonderful stay with Caroline's family. They kept her busy and active, followed her home schedule, and even celebrated her birthday! She sent me many adorable photos of Poppy visiting playgrounds, napping with her kids and looking very happy. After visiting two more traditional boarding options, I am convinced that this is the way to go. Caroline even went out of her way to accommodate our schedule. I didn't worry a bit!!! We will definitely repeat our visit with Caroline.

Immediately responded to me for a last minute day stay. Warm, friendly family (with adorable children). IF YOU NEED A NICE FAMILY TO LOOK AFTER AND LOVE YOUR POOCH, THIS IS THE ONE! Our dog was happy and tired when we picked her up. Thank you Caroline!

Caroline and her family were fantastic! They welcomed Jersey as one of the family and pampered her like royalty. Caroline sent daily pics/texts that were greatly appreciated. I will definitely use her again!!
