About Coleen

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My family and I are pet lovers. We saved all our pets from rescue shelters. We have our dog Lucky and our two cats Meesha and Luna, I work from my home and I am there every day with my pets. They have free roam of the house and furniture. I have a dog pool and a fenced in yard. I also have a park nearby to walk the pets at lunch. I am a true animal lover and welcome all dogs-shapes and sizes.

Coleen is a very nice person. We left her home confident that our two dogs would be taken care of. She showed us that she truly loves dogs and that this is not just a job to her. I highly recommend Coleen!!
This was a good experience. Darwin seemed happy.
Coleen is absolutely wonderful with Dreamer. He loves going to her house. As soon as I open the car door he's running to her front door to get inside. She takes care of him just like her own. I never have any type of anxiety or worry while he's in her care. I highly recommend her to anyone out there.

Our girls were very comfortable with Colleen and with this being our first experience with Dog Vacay we would highly recommend her to our pet parent friends.
Coleen was a great host! She kept us updated while we were away and our dog had a blast running around her fenced yard with her dog and the other dogs she was hosting. He was happy and exhausted when we picked him up. Coleen even sent home some yummy treats that he had enjoyed during his stay!

Jackson loves playing with the other dogs at Coleen's! He's always happy to be here, and always nice and tired from playing when I take him home!
Always happy with Coleen! Jackson is always so excited to be here!
Had a wonderful experience leaving my dog with Coleen. She kept me updated with pictures while Bo was with her. She really seems to care for all her "clients" and I have already made another reservation for Bo to stay with her!!
Lily had a great time staying with Coleen! There were lots of other dogs throughout the holiday weekend, so she got lots of great puppy socialization! I don't even think Lily noticed we had left! Because Lily was so young, we did not feel comfortable sending her to a regular kennel. This was a very positive experience for us. We appreciated Coleen following our same rules with Lily, and sending lots of photos and updates. We will be using Coleen's services for our next trip.

I have an almost 2 year old pitbull and because of his breed we often have trouble finding a place willing to take him. This was my first time leaving my dog for more than a day or two. It was also my first time leaving him with someone aside from a family member. I was super nervous and anxious about going on vacation only because I was going to have to leave him behind! Once I met Coleen and lucky all my worries were put to rest. She answered all my crazy questions and assured me everything would be alright. I went away for 6 days and had no problems! Coleen kept me updated on him and even sent pictures! I will definitely be using Coleen for my dog sitting needs in the future!

My puppy is very happy here! Sends pictures throughout the day :)
My puppy is always so excited to be here!
My puppy is not yet trained and takes a lot of patience, and she's so sweet about it!
My puppy is always so excited to be there when I drop him off!
Coleen was wonderful! It's great to find a caring place where there are other friendly pets and a carer who works from home. She was also understanding when we were delayed because of traffic, which hopefully will not happen next time. Our dog was peacefully asleep when we arrived to collect her; because of the other pets I think she preferred Coleen's house to ours!

Coleen was great and sent greatly appreciated updates and photos. My dog Katie was safe and happy on her first visit for daycare. I will certainly let her stay again wth Coleen. She has a wonderful rapport with dogs.
Coleen is great! She is responsible, kind and communicates well. She even went and bought can dog food when I forgot to give her some. I can tell our dog enjoys going with her, alike our last pet sitter that we had to drag her to. I am so happy to have found her.

She's great! Totally trustworthy with our baby.
Coleen and her son were wonderful as usual. I could tell by Henna's pictures how much fun she was having! Coleen is so caring and knows so much about dogs, you feel at complete ease when you leave your beloved dog to her. Thank you again :)
I first met Coleen during an initial visit with my dog, Radar and she gave me a tour of the house, inside and out. Her dog and mine hit it off from the start.
I finally had an opportunity to have Radar stay with Colleen for 2 1/2 days and it was the best experience for not only Radar but for me. Colleen sent me pictures every day, and at bedtime...I could see he was welcomed and loved. It relieved me while being out of town because I knew he was in such great hands!! And, Radar got to socialize with other dogs. I can't think of anyone else I would rather leave my Radar with except Colleen!

Coleen was wonderful. I can't thank her enough for taking Bailey on a short notice along with making her feel at home. Just knowing she was getting enough attention was a relief for me. I plan on using Coleen in the next couple of months and would highly reamed her.

Colleen is such a great dog sitter! Our Raider loves to stay with her and her family, and would never stay with anyone else! Raider cant wait for our next trip so she can go stay with Colleen!
Colleen was perfect for my Boston Terrier. She opens her home and welcomes the dogs as her own. She always sends pictures and I can see Raider is spoiled and happy in her care. Would highly recommend!
Coleen and her pup Lucky were great. She kept me in the loop and got pictures which really made me feel good about where my little dude was. He had a big yard and a buddy to hang with, I couldn't have asked for more
Zeke appeared happy, healthy, and relaxed when we picked him up from Coleen's today. She communicated with us every day so we always knew how he was doing. We would definitely have him stay with her again and would recommend her wholeheartedly!
First off I wanted to say Coleen did an amazing job watching Yoshi. I have an 5 month old Siberian Husky and he got along great with her dog as well as the others. She kept in touch giving me updates about my dog and most of all he had a great time. I know for sure when we came home he went straight to sleep. Overall great experience and I would definitely recommend Coleen.

Coleen took excellent care of my 5 dogs for 4 full days. She was extremely accommodating, caring and attentive to my babies. Coleen kept me informed of their happy status while I was away, sending me photos that clearly showed they were quite happy and loved. My puppy babies have already asked me when they can see Ms. Coleen again! :-) I highly recommend Coleen and I will definitely be leaving my babies in Coleen’s very capable and caring hands again.

This was my second time using Coleen's services. Coleen was accomodating and great to work with just as I experienced the first time. She sent pictures and kept me informed daily. AG seemed quite happy to see her again when he arrived for his second stay, and I am certainly comfortable with both her care of AG and the relationship she has developed with him. I highly recommend her.

Jake came home and flopped down immediately to sleep. Thats an indication that he had a good time. We are very lucky to have found Coleen. We will continue to use her.
Coleen was an awesome host. she went above and beyond to care for Henna, and treated her just like her own. Henna had a blast with Coleen and her son and I'm sure she can't wait to stay with them again. Thank you Coleen, and hope to see you again soon.

Coleen was a gracious and accommodating host. We are so HAPPY that we found her. We will be using her services in the future. Jake has finally found a good sitter.
I am a very picky dog mommy, and usually we plan all vacations that would include taking our Muffin along. When I saw this App (Dog Vacay) I thought, "What a great idea!" I scheduled a "Meet & Greet" with Coleen after looking at her profile...anyone who rescues dogs, cats, and birds is definitely an animal lover and one after my own heart. Muffin came along to meet and sniff and I was totally impressed with Coleen that we booked an overnighter. Coleen sent me pictures and short updates of Muffin which made the whole family happy to know that she was in good hands with a loving woman and her son. We will definitely be booking future vacays with Coleen and maybe even a few overnighters here and there just for fun!!

I highly recommend Coleen!!! She was fabulous!!!

This was our second time boarding with Colleen and family and it was as positive as the first time. Scout loves it there and even whined a little when I took her home!
Coleen was an incredibly gracious and accommodating host. Our puppy, Scout, felt at home right away, and was well taken care of. I would definitely recommend Coleen to others who are looking for someone who clearly loves animals, and who does their best to make your best friend feel at home.

Coleen and her family were very responsive and sweet hosts. Lucky and Bear got along so well and Bear followed Coleen everywhere even after I got there to pick him up. Thank you so much, Coleen, for taking such good care of him!
