Carrie was a great host to our dogs while we were away. We immediately felt comfortable with Carrie and confident that they were in good hands, as she explained in detail how the dogs would be cared for. While we were away, Carrie sent us pictures of the dogs lounging with her. We were worried they wouldn't want to come home! Thanks for taking such good care of our puppies, Carrie.
I am very happy with the set up Carrie has at her house. It is obvious that she is a dog lover and that matters most to me. Thanks a million from me...Lily suggested that next time she stays, the stay should include me, her master (???).
After our meet and great I was confident Reggie would be well cared for and have fun with his new friends. Carrie sent updates and photos throughout Reggie's 10 night stay. I will definitely use Carrie's great services again.
I could tell that my dog Jojo enjoyed her stay at Carrie's house and I know she was well taken care of. Carrie sent me some pictures of my dog while she was there and she looked as though she was having fun. There were other dogs there for my dog to be around and play with. I will definitely be a returning customer and will request for Carrie to watch our dog again, if we go away.
I highly recommend to anyone in the area that needs their dog looked after
Carrie is great and our dog really loves staying with her and all the dog friends she gets to meet and play with while she's there! She's really flexible too, and was able to schedule an extra night for us on a snowy winter night at the last minute. The dog yard is fenced and secure and I feel very comfortable even though our dog can jump very very high!
We've used Carrie twice now for our dog Annie and each time has been a great experience! She is attentive to Annie's needs and updates us with messages to let us know how she is doing during her stay. Carrie has a great set up for the dogs inside as well as plenty of room to run and play in a gated yard, which leaves us at ease that Annie will be safe. We will be continuing to use Carrie for dog care and I would absolutely recommend her to any of our friends and family!
Carrie has always been wonderful with our first Basset hound when she took both for our daughters wedding ( the second being a puppy and a handful) I won't go anywhere else. She has the patience of a saint.
She answers any questions you have and is wonderful with any worries you have while you are away.
Every single time I have to leave cooper it is a bit of a heart breaking event. He is without a doubt attached to me, he comes to work with me so we are together mostly 24/7 so he certainly has separation anxiety. When we met Carrie she made us comfortable enough to feel safe leaving him with a stranger. We got pictures and updates every day showing us how well he was doing! He looked so happy and that made our time away so much better than worrying the entire trip wishing we were home. People who don't love their dogs this way think we are crazy (we may be a little) but we love him so much because he is a member of our family, a beloved member. Thank you Carrie and family so much for caring and for providing a service that is without a doubt the most valuable thing I have discovered this year!!!
Carrie has been a life saver for my little monster. He gets separation anxiety yet you would never know it when he is at Carrie's! She loves on him just like I would, and he has so much fun playing! He comes home, smelling good and absolutely exhausted! It's just such a relief to have a place to bring him, where I can have peace of mind. She sends updates, pics and is super flexible with scheduling! A++
Honestly couldn't ask for more, Carrie was incredible. Quick to respond to inquiries, hopped on a call at my request to expedite process, and was very accommodating.

Kept us updated throughout our dogs stay to keep us at ease. Our dog Toby left happy, and slept the entire car ride home.
My Newfies love Carrie!!!!!
The pictures Carrie sent me of my boys are awesome!!
Day 2.... My Newfies enjoying the "Good Life" With all kinds of pampering for my 10 1/2 yr old boy!!!
Carrie @Harmonious HomeCanine is a dream come true for my Newfies!
Carrie is awesome. Great location and home style care for your pet.
Carrie is very "tuned in" to our 2yo service dog's unique experience of being without us for his first overnight away from us. Finnegan really likes Carrie and so don't we!! It is clear that she loves the dogs she is entrusted with. I would highly recommend this terrific lady!!
My dog stayed with Carrie for 2 nights earlier this month. Before accepting my dog for boarding, Carrie asked to meet him first because she wanted to make sure he would be compatible with the other dogs. That was the first sign that my dog would be happy there. And, indeed he was. His mood was great upon pickup and has been great ever since. I was happy, too, because of Carrie's quick responses to my anxious inquiries throughout my dog's stay. She truly enjoyed having him stay with her and all of her furry friends. I recommend her without reservation.
Carrie is great!

We have a puppy that is full of energy and a little crazy at times. I wasn't worried about our older dog, but it was the pup's first night away from us since we adopted her. I was a bit nervous about her.

All turned out well. Carrie's knowledge and patience is endless, which made all the difference in the world.
Banjo had a wonderful stay with Carrie while we were at our son's graduation. Carrie was flexible with drop off and pick up times, and kept us posted with his antics. She even sent cute pictures and comments about how much she was enjoying our dog. He was comfortable, safe, and well cared for. We will definitely visit Carrie again if we're in the area.
Our pup enjoyed his stay! We've been involved with Carrie for several months for puppy training. She has been wonderful in helping us to train our dog. She has great, practical strategies. She is reliable and flexible and goes above and beyond. We are thrilled to have someone that we trust. Thanks for a great stay!
Our 3rd time with Carrie. As we were doing an overnight boat trip and reliant on others to bring us back, we couldn't really tell her exactly what time we would be back. There were no worries, and she was very accommodating. Love getting the picture of our puppy all snuggled into her bed and comfortable. Makes going away stress free.
This was our 2nd time using Carrie. Ava was excited when we drove in so we knew she was comfortable being there. She was happy to see Carrie and get in the house and hardly noticed I walked away. That's what you want, a dog that isn't sad you are leaving! Thank you Carrie!
This was our first time leaving our little family member with Carrie. Had used a vet day care previously who only uses crates. Our dog had become frantic in a crate and Carrie was so accommodating as to what she needed to be comfortable. Frequent pics and emails that she was all settled in and doing great! Put our minds at east!
It was my boy's first time away from us for an overnight and Carrie was awesome!! She sent us updates and pictures to ease our minds. Bane had a wonderful time and he's excited to go back!! We'd use Carrie again in a heartbeat!!
My pups all had a great time at Carrie's!! She kept me updated with messages and pictures... absolutely wonderful!
My dog is so happy with Carrie.
My dog is very excited to go to Carrie's and is exhausted when she gets home.
Carrie exceeded my expectations. She immediately responded to my many questions and provided frequent photos and updates. She treated my dog as though she was family and that provided immeasurable peace of mind. I will definitely use her services again!
Gloria loves staying with Carrie and her dogs and always has a great time playing with them. She's always tired out from all her playtime after she gets home! Carrie is great at working with last minute requests and unforeseen circumstances. We were going to pick up Gloria one day and a snow storm came and was so bad that we asked to leave her another night and it was just fine.
Carrie was terrific and Lola had a great time. Good communication and pictures and videos helped us miss our little Lola a bit less. Will definitely use Carrie again!
We had a very good experience with Carrie through DogVacay. It was the first time I left my collie, Lila with Carrie and when we picked her up she was all set to stay there which I did not expect at all. Lila is an only child except for 2 cats and I was sure she would be done with the "doggy" companions by then. She truly had a great time which tells me Carrie was attentive to her needs not overwhelming her with the other dogs as she likes being the only child and likes her own space with other dogs. Carrie is truly a doggie person !
Thank you Carrie.

This is the second time Carrie has taken care of our 2 dogs. Both times we have been very happy with her and will not hesitate to bring our pups to her again.
Carrie provides excellant in home daycare. I am quite pleased with the personal touches, the way our dog is treated as "part of the family" and is made to feel right at home. In fact, so at home I wonder if she even misses us! And the daily pictures are always appreciated.

I would highly recommend Carrie and Harmonious Home Canine to everyone.
Breyer & Izzy LOVE going on doggy vacation with Carrie. Another great week in her care!
Carrie is so accommodating for pet parents, and was so sweet with my little guy!! Thank you Carrie!!
I had to find a sitter at the last minute. Carrie is very flexible and accommodating. lacy enjoys going there. There's always a friend to play with!
Another fantastic Vacay for our two pups and for us! Third time our four legged family members have stayed with Carrie. They always have fun and we are able to enjoy our vacation worry free! Will definitely continue to use Carrie's loving care.
After reading other reviews and meeting Carrie in person, I had no reservations leaving my 2 year old basset hound in her care. She is very well set up for multiple dogs and my Annabel did quite well with her. I will absolutely be bringing her back!
What a great time they had. And just as importantly the knowledge that they were in such capable hands enabled us to rest easy and enjoy our vacation. Thanks again and see you soon!
My dog, Lyra, is super awesome, but... kinda high maintenance. Well, it's just that she needs tons of exercise & intellectual stimulation, and if she's not getting enough - she lets you know!
Now Carrie really seemed friendly, thoughtful, and caring; seemed knowledgeable, capable, and organized; seemed to know & care about her guests.
But the real test was when I picked Lyra up. Lyra's -sensitivity- means I can absolutely tell how well her needs were met. When I picked her up, she was her best-version of herself: happy, relaxed, attentive, obedient, affectionate. Everything I could want!
I have already scheduled with Carrie again. Totally recommend!
My Olive was a shelter dog and given back to a shelter 3 times so I didn't want her to go to a kennel and think she was being given up again. This home environment was perfect for her! She was very comfortable and had a lot of fun playing with the other dogs. She was sick one night and Carrie took care of her like she was her own. I would definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends!
Carrie was very accommodating. Gracie has never liked staying in kennels but she liked staying with Carrie. I would highly recommend her.
Carrie is excellent to work with. She is very flexible and communicates well. We use her exclusively when we can't bring our dog with us.
Another excellent time with Carrie's family. We'll definitely be back!
Looking forward to booking again!
Carrie is amazing! Hayes is always so happy when I pick him up. I can tell he gets all the love and care while I'm away. Between bad weather and flight cancellations Carrie is more than accommodating. It's nice to know my dog is in good hands.
Exceptional experience from beginning to end.
Carrie is not just a dog lover but a qualified doggy care professional! Her background, knowledge and genuine concern for the emotional and physical well being of the pets in her care made it an easy decision to have my two dogs vacation for three weeks at her home.
Carrie sent weekly photos and updates which were much appreciated. Upon my return, I could tell that the dogs had been brushed regularly, a very pleasant surprise, and had bonded with not only Carrie but her family as well. They will definitely "vacation" with Carrie again!
Carrie was excellent!! When we dropped our 2 dogs off we found out one of them was sick. She took her to the vet and took great care of her. Both pups were happy and looked great when we picked them up. I would not hesitate to leave them with Carrie again,
Carrie provided a great environment for Keifer and Red during our vacation. With her staff of willing canine and able human playmates, I believe they were given all the love and attention they could handle, as the pictures she sent will attest. We'll be quite happy to trust Keifer and Red with Carrie and her friends at the Harmonious Canine Inn during our next trip.
Carrie was excellent on the meet and greet. We took a short walk with our dogs to introduce them. She had a plan in place for the meet and greet which made me feel very comfortable with her skills with the dog and her organizational abilities.
She was good at communication while I was away when I inquired how things are going. I will definitely use this service again when I have to travel without my dog.
Carrie took wonderful care of my dog for almost one month. He has a lot of energy and she took him out to the dog park and for walks to make sure he was well taken care of. She sent updates and photos so we knew he was doing great!
