About Darcy

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We maintain a wonderful quiet home for all dogs with all personalities. There are no children in our household family, which is important to the boarding and daycare of "adult raised" dogs. This provides calmness for even the most nervous pup. The peacefulness of our home and lifestyle is a key factor in our care for our dog guests who are away from their home comfort. This is especially important to our small dog guests!

NOTE: We strive to have one to two dog guests per day, which gives your family dog the proper attention that they deserve. This we feel is important to our dog home care.
Many sitters take in several dogs at one time, along with their own dogs, which may cause your dog undue stress. This we truly avoid.

Having no resident dogs of our own, our dog guests get all of the affection!

Individual walking gives full attention to your dog, along with private outdoor yard activity which is always fully supervised by us. They are never left outside alone. We do NOT go to the dog parks.
Our dog-friendly home has a large safe fully fenced backyard.
The house has wonderful natural light, giving the day a true sense of home. Small dogs feel very comfortable in our home environment.

SPECIAL NOTE: If there is a date that you are requiring for boarding or daycare, that you see marked on my calendar as "unavailable", please still inquire with me. If it is suitable, I will then unblock that date and make it available for your needs and for your reservation booking.

We know how important your family member is and we make sure that they have a great day or a great vacation! Updates and pictures will be sent to all owners daily.

We have owned and looked after many different breeds with all personalities. They are all special! We look forward to meeting you and your loved one!!

Note: I have the "Background Checked" Badge.

As always the girls loved their doggie vacay. :) Just like being at home. We feel so blessed to have found someone to take care of our babies just like we would.
Another fun vacay for my little ones. Thank you so much. We can't thank you enough. ??
When your dogs come back as happy as they left....you know they were in good hands and they must have felt like there were at home. Nothing better than being able to trust and feel comfortable leaving them. Thank you so much Darcy!
Darcy was great with Mylo! She made sure that he was loved and cared for while I was gone. She sent several updates so I knew he was okay. After a couple updates I wasn't worried about leaving him anymore. He was so happy with his stay. Definitely a great doggie vacation!
Darcy was amazing with our two babies. They are very spoiled and one is elderly, so they have many special care needs and Darcy accommodated everything and did and incredible job with them. They came home so relaxed and very content. It was so nice getting the daily text and picture updates. We do not like leaving the dogs with anyone but family and to be honest it felt like they were with family. We were able to relax and not worry about them. So happy we found Dogvacay and connected with Darcy and Murray. Thanks for caring for Ohia and Pepper like they were your own. We have already booked with Darcy again in September.
Darcy was absolutely fantastic with Shiloh! Darcy was so welcoming at our meet and greet, and I could tell that Shiloh just gravitated towards her. It really gave me piece of mind knowing that Shiloh was so well taken care of. Being new to DogVacay, I was curious to see how Shiloh would do with it- and she loved it! I would recommend Darcy to anyone, she has a great environment for lots of TLC for your dog while you are away!
A very lovely and warm family, will book again next time
We left Bilbo with Darcy on three occasions during our Canada visit and all three were wonderful! Darcy was very very professional and very loving towards our little Bilbo! He got his walks and naps and playtime on time. We were always updated on how Bilbo was doing. We will definitely be using Darcy's daycare services the next time we are in Canada! :-) shout out to her husband Murray for being really awesome too!
One word-Fabulous!
Darcy is a marvellous host. Her kind, nurturing personality put Paddy at ease right from the start.
Darcy loves dogs and clearly she and her husband have a lot of experience caring for and interacting with many different breeds. When choosing a host we wanted someone who would be attentive to our dog's needs, preferably someone home all day, who does not have multiple dogs, other pets, or children to care for- we wanted a home where our little man could feel like a king and we found it!
Darcy has a lovely spacious home that's very dog-friendly, calm, and safe. No clutter or dangerous things curious pooches could get into. There are lots of comfy spots to relax and snooze, carpeted stairs, and even a street lookout from the couch which Paddy really loved! Darcy sent us daily pictures and text/email updates that always made us laugh or smile. It was comforting to know Paddy was happy and relaxed, and getting lots of love and attention. Paddy's new home away from home!
Darcy took care of Mango (our Maltese pup) when we were out of town for the long weekend. We had only ever left Mango alone once before so he is extremely spoilt and were really anxious but once we met Darcy, we were thrilled with our choice. She took excellent care of him, which was reflected in the numerous daily photos we received. With respect to pick-up and drop-off times, Darcy was super flexible even through she had an early morning trip the following day.We are so glad to have found her and will definitely be booking again next time Mango goes on a DogVacay!
I am a first time user of DogVacay and so glad that we found Darcy as a host. Darcy and her husband are genuine and honest and you can tell they really care about pets. She sent us pictures of how Angel (our cockapoo) was doing which was really appreciated! There were very flexible with drop off and pick up times which really helped us out! I'm so happy we found Darcy and have no hesitation to book with her again!
Darcy and Murray took great care of Astro and Brutus during their stay. They were very flexible with when we could drop off and pick up Astro and Brutus which was great for us. We would definitely repeat in the future. Regards, Ravi
