About Caroline

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi I'm Caroline!

Please note: I am ONLY available for dog-sitting, which means that I will stay at your home with your pup!

Just from the photos above, you'll see that every Guest dog who has had a Vacay with me has had a blast! We have fun photo sessions, we go hiking, we play endless games of fetch and non-stop cuddling sessions.

You won't regret trusting me with your dog! From seniors to puppies, I have experience with them all. Can't wait to meet you and your fur-babe!

Caroline is amazing!! She stayed at our house while we were on vacation to take care of our pup, and not only is our dog obsessed with her, but we came back to the house in perfect condition and all of our requests followed perfectly. She also sent us adorable pictures and videos and updates daily. We will absolutely be using her again! We love Caroline!

I am so grateful to Caroline. My pup got sick on her watch, had a couple of accidents in her car/house (!!) and kept her up all night — and she STILL sent me pictures of him being cute, took care of him (and cleaned up after him) the whole time without so much as a word of complaint. She is an absolute lifesaver and the best sitter ever!

Caroline was an awesome host that Iggy really loves. So much that he didnt seem to want to leave at all! By the time he got home he knocked out right away from all the fun he had.
Caroline was absolutely wonderful and our experience was beyond expectation! She made my pup feel right at home and treated him like the little king he is. By the time I picked him up, Meeko had fallen in love with her. It was such a relief receiving the beautiful photos she took and the super fun videos of Meeko having so much fun. I will NEVER go to the kennel now that I see such a huge difference in my dog after a DogVacay stay. I will absolutely work with Caroline in the future. She's a doll.

Caroline was very friendly upfront and she really seemed to love being around our dog Sadie. She stayed over a week and took care of our place while we were away on our vacay and left everything as if no one was ever there. We would highly recommend Caroline to our friends and family or anyone looking for a dog sitter that actually likes dogs !

Caroline was super open, followed the schedule she proposed and was always communicating little status updates and photos. I'd get notifications of an update in my app, and presto, there's a picture or a video, which a) made me smile and B) gave me a quiet reassurance that everything back home was handled. I had a great experience with DogVacay as a service and with all interactions and conversations with Caroline. I will use them again.

Caroline is amazing!!! She was so kind and so helpful and took such good care of my little Frenchie! She always sent pictures and kept in touch and was so sweet about making sure our home was perfect before we got home. I will use her everytime I go away if she's available. What a great experience! We were so scared to leave our pup and go away but dog vacay and Caroline were nothing but amazing!!

Caroline did SUCH an amazing job taking care of my cats while I was across the country for the holidays. She calmed my every fear with her great communication and photo updates of my precious little felines. After meeting her and seeing her interact with the cats, I felt super comfortable leaving them in her hands. She exceeded my expectations!!! I will definitely use her again :)

I booked with Caroline again who is a fantastic sitter for my little ones. I love the updates she gives and photos she sends while I am away so I never have to worry. I return to happy pups and that is the best a pup-parent can ask for. Caroline is great!!

Caroline is a sweetheart and took great care of Hercules. She even took the greatest pictures that I can't wait to print and frame!
Caroline was progressional and sweet. My pups seemed to really like her and it was good to know they were in god hands while I was gone for so long (8 days!).

She sent photos and updates which is HUGE in my book.

The furr babies had a few accidents in the house, but I am sure that was due to a new person. I doubt it'll happen again with Caroline, as they'll know her by that point.

Caroline was absolutely fantastic. She arrived for a meet and greet, to meet Zylo and alleviated a little of my concerns about leaving my guy for a few days with someone he wasn't familiar with. Everything went fine, i got frequent text updates and pictures taken together sent to me. I would highly recommend Caroline, and will most likely be using her again in the future. Thanks so much for the excellent sitting service!

Caroline was super sweet and helpful and Hercules was in great spirits when I returned. Very happy!
Caroline was wonderful. She did an outstanding job taking care of our dog. She came over to our house a couple of times to meet him and get the lay of the land in our house, and when we left out a key detail about how to get in, she climbed over the fence to make sure our dog was okay! We got frequent updates (multiple times a day) with adorable pictures.

Caroline was amazing! Coco did a meet and greet prior to me leaving and she instantly took to her. This is the first time I have left her alone w/ someone new as we just relocated to Los Angeles - Caroline took such great care of her and did an amazing job of updating me on her stay with Coco. I would 100% Dog Vacay with Caroline again - Coco and I felt very comfortable with her!

Caroline is THE BEST! Truly she always goes above an beyond for me and my pup. I can always count on her to give Cody the best care possible and when she comes to stay with him I always say it's like Cody gets a little vacation of his own!
I think I'm Caroline's biggest fan now. Not only did she take incredible care of my family dogs but she also came back by to walk them after the booking since my flight home got delayed a bit. Just to make sure they weren't inconvenienced. What a gal! I thought she was super cool and my dogs did too.

Caroline did a great job taking care of Winnie while we were away. She sent lots of cute pictures so we could check in and see things were going well. We came home to a clean home and a happy, well-cared for dog. We are happy too! Thank you Caroline.

My pup is 14, and I am always concerned leaving her with new folks when I go out of town. Caroline was great and did a fantastic job with her while I was gone for 5 days! She handled her 2x day meds well, sent adorable pictures, and was clearly patient with challenging trips up and down the stairs. My pup took an immediate liking to her, and seems to have had a great time while I was gone. I know that now that she's older my dog can be a bit more challenging, and Caroline handled her like a pro - I'll definately be contacting her again!

Caroline was fantastic!!! I found myself in a bind and traveling to a location nearly off the grid. She provided another option of accommodation and cared for my beloved in the comfort of our home. She was highly communicative, sent pictures/updates and felt very at ease that my pup was being well taken care of and happy.

Caroline is great! She's so flexible and trustworthy which makes leaving our dogs and home much easier! It's great to know that we have nothing to worry about when we leave and I will definitely be using her again!
Caroline is the best. I have a bit of a problem child, a poor little thing that was not treated right by her first owner, and Caroline had never met her. I know it was difficult for her because Mimi doesn't trust anything. But Caroline remained steadfast and eventually got her to hang out and be happy while I was gone. I truly appreciated the effort she took to take care of all three of them. I will use her again in the future, no doubt. I am at ease to know that I have a dependable person and company to use when I need to leave town. It was always so stressful for me to even thing about traveling and now I have nothing to worry about! Thanks Caroline!!

This was our first time leaving our puppy, Leo, since we adopted him. We were a bit nervous about leaving him, but Caroline was GREAT with Leo and sent us picture updates while we were gone. When we got back, Leo was his usual happy self - it's as if we had never left!

Caroline comes and takes care of your dog in your own home, which we appreciated since it allowed our pup to stay in a place he was comfortable and familiar with. We will definitely be contacting Caroline again next time Leo needs a petsitter :)

Caroline came to the rescue with less than a days notice to jump in and help us! We really appreciate how easy she made it all work out. Finding pet care last minute can be stressful and we were able to tend to some family items knowing Butter was being well taken care of. We look forward to having Caroline stay again.

Caroline is always awesome, this is the second time we have used her and the pups couldn't have been happier :) Thanks again Caroline!
Caroline did an outstanding job! It's easy to tell she loves dogs and takes every opportunity to ensure they enjoy their staycation as much as we do our vacation.

We have three Siberian Huskies who are full of energy and she took them to the dog park, for coffee and lots of walks. We received pictures of all their adventures!

Two of our three have glaucoma and require twice daily eye drops. Caroline didn't even flinch when asked about the drops and did a great job administering while we were away.

I can't recommend Caroline more highly. Next time we leave town, we know who we are calling!

This was our first time on DogVacay and we couldn't have been happier with how everything went. Caroline was an absolute gem of a sitter and made the entire process so easy! Being that our pup is a senior citizen and requires medication 2x a day, we were a bit scared leaving her in the hands of someone we just met, but it was hands down the best thing we did. Caroline not only came over on short notice (same day) to meet us and the pup, she immediately made us feel comfortable with everything. Since Caroline stayed at our house while we were away, our pup was able to go along with her day as usual and that was fantastic! The best feeling is being able to enjoy a trip away and know your furry kid is being well cared for. The daily text photos were great too, it really helped us know she was doing just fine and having fun. I'll certainly be reaching out to Caroline again!

Caroline was a wonderful host! I needed someone to watch Tom Tom at the last minute, and I was so lucky Caroline came through for dog boarding! She was very flexible and took great care of Tom Tom. I would definitely book with her again.
This was the first time we used Caroline and I almost didn't want to leave a good review so no one would take her from us!! lol
She sent us a number of pictures every day and the dogs seemed even better than before we left. We have a 1 1/2 year old Boston Terrier who can be A LOT to handle, she did an excellent job and stayed in contact with us through our whole trip. I am already booking her for our next trip!!!

This is the second time I’ve used Caroline as a sitter and am once again very pleased. My dogs are nervous in strange environments so I requested that Caroline stay at my place with them. They are very happy to have her and Caroline is great at communicating the activities of her stay so I never have to worry about what is happening. She sent lots of pictures too so i can see them playing, on walks, etc. My dogs are all kisses and wagging tails when I return so I know they were well looked after. Caroline is great!!

Caroline was fantastic!!
I was nervous to leave my two little ones as they have never had a sitter before and they are "sensitive" to new environments and new people. Caroline was great with them and sent tons of updates and pictures doing what they love (on walks, at the doggy park, playing at home, etc.) so I knew they were in good hands. This was also the first time I’ve used DogVacay – I have been pleasantly surprised with the whole experience from the user friendly website, the helpful concierge in identifying good matches and ultimately with Caroline. This was a great experience for a first- timer and I will be booking Caroline again soon!
