About Donna

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am retired and own a small farm. Have a nice fenced yard with 6 foot chain link fence. Also have a 16x20 kennel with pavers. I walk 3 or 4 times daily usually 2 miles each walk down to the end of the road and back. I also hike. I live in a very picturesque quiet country area. My life revolves around all my animals. Very small and personal and in my home. Can be active as several walks daily plus playtime in the fenced yard or just chilling out in the fenced yard while the pups play or just relax.i would like to think i am special as a host as for many years i have raised guide dog puppies for a guide dog school . so have had alot of experience with all ages of dogs from puppies all the way up to geriatrics when my working guide dogs were retired and came home here to live out their golden years.******Also offering in home care for those that may feel more secure in their own environment******some dogs have great anxiety out of their norm. I have no problem watching your pup in your own home....any dogs that come here to my farm live in my home and interact with my dog and cat. Want it a pleasant experience for all.....

Donna was fantastic! She was able to care for my very young pup, which was not an easy job. She sent me lots of updates and even a video that showed my pup having lots of fun playing outside. It was nice to know that my little baby was being cared for so well in our absence. She came back tired and happy, which is the sign of a successful doggy vacation! I would certainly recommend Donna.

What a wonderful person Donna H. is. This is the most relaxed we have ever been leaving our precious Border Terrier, Dewey Blue. We felt like we had know her for 20 years...she is personable and you can tell she loves, loves, loves her animals and yours for that matter. Dewey was taken care of by Donna like he was her only dog. She has a great place and we recommend her highly. We only wish she was our neighbor. Will we ever find another DogVacay sitter that we liked as much as Donna??? We dropped Dewey off in the morning, went to the Big E and picked him up in the evening. She was open to a late pickup which we appreciated because we did not have to leave the fair so early. Overall, the best experience ever!

Great time for Pippin once again. She came back well fed, happy and relaxed. So much better then a kennel. Donna was very accommodating when we got home early and wanted to pick up Pippin at night. Thanks again
Best dog sitter ever! Great set up for Pippin. Very nice fenced shaded back yard, separate dog run and nice family room for Pippin to hang out it. Donna was very careful to keep Pippin in during the heat wave and also gave her lots of outside time which she loves. Pippin usually comes back from boarding several pounds lighter but not this time. She ate well and looks great! Donna emailed me daily updates too!

First I'd like to so I'm so glad I found this website via a Google search. It was getting down to just days to go before our trip and I still had no place for Jake to go. He's a senior and really needs a home environment with just a dog or two in residence, this was perfect.
Donna was a great find.
Our meet and greet went wonderful.
When it came time to drop my dog off she offered to meet me somewhere closer to me so that I didn't have take make the 1 hour drive, so sweet of her to do that. She sent many pictures and when I texted she was very reassuring.
I especially like all the experience she's had with dogs, she's raised many guide dogs so is fully aware of how to keep a dog safe, she had no problem with my request to keep my dog on leash his entire stay.
Jake came back thoroughly pooped which gave me extra time to unpack and settle in after a long weekend away.

Thanks Donna
