About Donna

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a dog lover. I had dogs all my life. Cocker Spaniel, Mastiff, Labrador, two Rotweilers. Last December my 12 years old Maya passed away. The heartbreak was too much. We decided not to get a new dog, but instead take care of other people's dogs, when they have to go away on business or vacation. Their dogs will be loved and pampered like at their own homes (or better !). I have a fenced yard and a pool that doggies can use (if their owners permit). We live in sparsely populated area with plenty of safe walking paths. We are both retired and have all the time to devote to dogs given to us to care for.
I am an avid advocate for neglected or abandoned dogs and animal welfare in general, Before retiring and moving to Florida I volunteered in local animal shelter in Illinois. I am sure that my four legged clients will love spending time in my home and their "parents" will have peace of mind leaving them in my (and my husband's) care. And we will all be happy !!!!
I cannot accept dogs that are not house broken.
If the stay exceeds 24 hours the guest will be charged for additional day. ( like in the hotel).

Donna and her husband did a great job taking care of our Gracie ( 7 yr old Golden Retriever). They truly provide a loving home away from home and we will definitely use them again.
Our 2 dogs did very well at their first overnight stay with Donna. Great fenced in yard and lovely folks to care for our 2 very spoiled girls. We will go back again for sure.
I have used Donna for daycare and overnights for a couple of times for my 11yr old girl (dog) and I couldn't be more happier. I feel that she took care of my girl like the way I would. She really cared about my dog and wanted to make it a good experience for her and me! I highly recommend her.

Everything went smoothly - i like the whole experience .
Donna and her husband were very kind to my dog. They were patient with him and understanding.
Donna and her husband made our Quinn feel right at home. She sent me pictures to let me know how he was doing. I would definitely bring Quinn there again.
JJ had a wonderful stay with Donna and her husband. I can't tell you what a relief it was to know that she was in such good hands while I was away. They sent me pictures to let me see what JJ was doing, took her for walks, cuddled with her and in general treated her as if she were their own.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Donna to anyone to care for their dog!

Donna is truly a doggie person. We had some "very last minute" plans come up, but she very kindly took Sammi in for a couple of days. I highly recommend her dog sitting services.
My dogs and I were very satisfied and we would most definitely use Donna again.
Donna and her husband kindly took in our 4 month old pit bull puppies very last minute in an emergency situation. They were really kind and accommodating. Donna was very attentive to one of our puppy's dermatitis and informed me immediately when she became concerned about his sores. They took very good care of our boys and I am beyond appreciative. I highly recommend them and would use them again.
