About Carla

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We offer your pet a loving, calm, caring home experience when you need to board your dog(s), at an affordable price. We are a family of two adults, and two small dogs. All reservations include premium pet insurance, access to 24/7 customer support and daily photo updates.

Combined we have over 50 years experience caring for dogs of different ages, needs, and personalities. No need to worry if you have a senior or medically needy pup that requires special care or medication. Due to the nature of our business, we can't take aggressive pups at this time.

We have fostered dogs for years and cared for dozens of dogs (friends and family) as well. We joke that we don't have a backyard, it is a mini dog park. We are a low to medium energy home. There may be times when we are not at home for up to 4/5 hours a day. If your pup is high energy we may not be the right fit.

Our house has a fully fenced yard with lots of space to play. We offer two walks a day at no additional charge. We have a dog-friendly home and your pup can go anywhere in it. We have an entire space (family room) devoted to the pups in our care. There is a separate space for those who prefer a little alone time. We only board 1-2 (dogs at a time, so your pup will receive a lot of time and attention.

At the time of boarding, please bring detailed written instructions so we can keep your pet on their routine, and understand his/her likes and dislikes. Your pup is required to have a current record of Rabies, Bordatella, and DHLP vaccine. There is no need to obtain more vaccines unless you decide it.

Bring a familiar item for sleep time such as a blanket, bed, or crate/kennel. Please bring a leash, food, and any medications.

We offer affordable pick-up/drop-off services and bathing/brushing options for an additional cost. If additional services are needed, please don't hesitate to ask about it. No need to worry if you are on vacation and there is a problem that hinders your pick-up time. We are flexible and understand that delays happen. We charge by the night, not by the hour.

Carla was our first time using dog vacay. Her home is an ideal setup for hosting dogs comfortably. Joan, gave us multiple updates during the stay. By the end of our 5 days, I think our dogs might have had as much fin as we had on vacation. It means so much to us to know our dogs are safe when we are away. It's extremely valuable to know they are also having fun.

Carla was so great taking care of our Briley who is an older Shih tzu. She kept us updated on how Briley was doing during his stay. Since Briley is older, he gets a little uneasy with changes to his schedule but Carla really babied him and Briley probably did not want to leave Carla's care...lol. Would definitely use her service again.

Sherlock had a good time with Jessi and Buddi, the two resident dogs. Carla sent pictures and updates during the day. Sherlock came home a happy dog and tat makes me happy. He's going back again mid October to spend some time with his two new pals.

Best ever experience. My dog came home happy and was treated like a princess. Loved all the photos. Thank you Carla so very much!!!!!
Carla's many years of experience really shine through. She was very willing to follow our special instructions and helped reduce our anxiety by providing daily updates and pictures. She offers a calm comfortable and secure home. We are so happy to add her to the network of sitters. Our dogs were relaxed and happy when we picked them up - as though they had never left home.

Our pooch Lucy had a grand stay at Carla's. We felt so comfortable leaving her there while we were out of the country. The daily messages and pictures were awesome! We highly recommend Carla, and Lucy will be back!
Carla was very pleasant and easy to work with. The itinerary for our dog while on Vacay with Carla fit him well.
Thank you for being so good to our girls! The fireworks can be quite upsetting to them and you took extra care to keep them sheltered from the booms. We so appreciate you being so thoughtful and kind. We just hope the girls want to be home with us now! ;o)

Carla and Joan did an outstanding job taking care of our Daisy! It was obvious, from the adorable daily pics sent to us while we were away, that Daisy was having as much fun on vacation as we were! Daisy got along really well with Carla's and Joan's cute, sweet dogs, Jessi and Buddi! Carla and Joan also made a big fuss over Daisy and told us how much they enjoyed taking care of her! What proud dog parent doesn't want to hear that?! I would definitely recommend Carla and Joan if you are ever looking for loving, caring, and dependable people to take special care of your furry friend while you're away. They will be seeing Daisy again, for sure! Thank you so much, Carla and Joan, for adding joy to our worry-free vacation, knowing that Daisy was in great hands! You're both awesome! :)

What can I say? My dog loves it here and they love my dog like their own....makes me happy!
We were so thrilled with Carla and Joan---they sent pics of our "girls" every day and we can tell that they genuinely love dogs. We felt so comfortable leaving for vacation knowing that our girls would be well cared for. We hope there's room at their "Inn" for them again! =o)

What a great service! We were thrilled to find a host close to us. Having never left our pug before we had a ton of questions which Carla patiently answered. The kids loved the daily texts with photo's and our dog came home looking fit and trim getting spoiled with more walks than we are able to give him. We would definetly book here again!

I can't thank Carla more for how well she took care of our Frodo. We received daily updates and photos and I will not hesitate to call on her services again in the future!
Bixby had a great time at Carla's. Bixby has arthritis in his hips and can't move around like he used to. He received very special love and care while at Carla's. We were given daily updates on Bixby and how he was doing. We will certainly be contacting Carla again if we need a sitter for Bixby.

What a great place for our little guy! He made himself at home and was loved like one of their own. He really seemed to enjoy his new human and canine friends. He loved being able to run and play in their fenced in yard. I loved the daily updates, complete with pictures. This made it much easier to relax and know that he was ok and well taken care of. It's great knowing that we have a home away from home for our pup!

Wonderful experience for our big coon hound. He loved his stay and we were told they loved him too. We are booking another week long stay for him next month. So happy to have found these great animal lovers.
Our dog likes this home.
