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.

We charge $26 a night. DogVacay takes 20% of the fee for the use of the site and administrative costs (insurance, 24/7 response). DogVacay also adds an additional fee to your total for administrative costs. We don't agree with the additional fee and wish there was a way around it.

Carla is great. Shilo is pampered there and becomes part of the family during his stay. I would recommend Carla!
Maggie was tired and happy at the end of her stay. Clearly she had a great time! Lots of pictures from Carla to let us know what she was up to. I have rebooked with her for two more stays already!
Carla and Joan took great care of Jobear. We were gone for over two weeks and needed to know that someone who really loves animals and has experience taking care of senior pets would be caring for Jobear as he has some special needs. We are very pleased at the care he received and would not hesitate to have Jobear stay with Carla and Joan in the future. I think Jobear would enjoy returning to see his new friends again, too! Thank you!
