About Tracy

We work full time from home while raising 4 children age ranging from 9-18 years old. We are taking this opportunity to teach our children that they can earn income if they are willing to commit their time and apply their skills. All of our children enjoy and respect animals.

Your dog will enjoy a brief OR extended vacay with The DiBeases because our home is spacious and our wooded property provides lots of room for walkin'! If you only need help for the day (so you can host a party, shower, or attend a wedding), we are at your service and will adjust our rate through a custom quote.

Any pup we host will be safe on a leash when outdoors and will get lots of attention/play when indoors. We do not own a dog (just one big, adorable rescue rabbit - see photo!) and are committed to accepting one dog at a time. We are committed to caring for your dog so YOU can relax.

I like that it is a family committed to taking care of my dog. He came home happy and excited from his stay!
Mollie's stay with Tracy and her family was ideal !!
She seemed very at home with them. She loves people and kids and this was great because they
have wonderful children and they interacted beautifully with Mollie. They are a great family and I recommend them highly !! Your pet will certainly be in good hands with Tracy and her family !!

Maverick loves Tracy and her family! After just one visit, He ran all the way up to the door and never looked back! It made our 10 day away so much nicer, knowing that he was being well cared for and enjoying the attention the kids gave him. Pictures and texts were sent to keep us up to date.

Tracy and her family were great. We did a meet and greet first which made both my family as well as Tracy's comfortable with Lulu. Since Lulu is a puppy I was a bit nervous. They were accommodating of our late return as well. I got an update along with photos every day which was nice to see Lulu doing well. I would highly recommend their services and will certainly reach out to them again.

We were so pleased with how Jake, our dog, was treated by Tracy and her family, that it is the only place we are willing to leave him. He was treated like he was a member of their family. We received photo up dates showing Jake with the family children. This is the best idea in dog boarding ever.

Tracy and her family took care of our dog, Jake, like he was a member of her family.
Lorenzo had the best time this weekend at Tracy's house! She has a wonderful family and Lorenzo felt right at home. I loved that they would send pictures and keep me updated on how he was doing. Lorenzo already can't wait for his next vacay at Tracy's! Thank you so much for making us feel so comfortable and at ease.

I would absolutely recommend Tracy and her family. Shiloh had a great time in their home and came back tired, but content. Tracy updated us frequently on how she was doing and was able to accommodate our dates on very sort notice. It's clear the whole family cares about and loves animals. We are looking forward to using her services again for some longer trips in the future.

We had a terrific experience. Tracy and her family are such good people. Our dog loved it there -- we actually felt a little bad taking the dog back b/c she obviously had such a great time with the "kiddos"! I don't think she missed us at all! The whole family is welcoming and great with pets. Even though my request was last minute (and for a holiday weekend), Tracy responded quickly and allowed me to schedule a meet and greet in a couple of days. They will be our first choice if we need to leave town again.

This was our third time using the Tracy and family through Dog Vacay and we couldn't be happier!
We could tell our girl had a wonderful time, and it was so great to know she was getting to hang out with a family who loved her and gave her such amazing attention. I was so happy when I saw that Tracy had printed out all the instructions I had sent ahead of time and had them hanging on her fridge, and the regular updates, pictures and texts of our girl really comforted me and helped me see and know she was having a blast. This is just an absolutely special and wonderful family in every way - and any dog would be especially lucky to have a vacay with Kanines & Kiddos!

Our dog Corey couldn't be happier! He had children to play with and made a new friend with Chester the bunny. Thank you Tracy and Jamie Corey will be happy to visit again :-) WOOF WOOF
Tracy, Jamie & the "kiddos" are absolutely amazing!
When I pulled up in their driveway yesterday afternoon, Sami basically pushed me out of the car, ran up to the steps to the front door and ran into the house....and she's only stayed there for one day before this...which was a one night stay. I picked her up this afternoon & while she was happy to see me, I could tell she had enjoyed herself. I received a photo & text message from Tracy about an hour after dropping her off yesterday..."LOL! Apparently Sami really is vacationing!!! We LOVE her!!! (btw she walked AND peed...all systems are working)" The photo showed Sami in what I call her "Samantha Regina" pose...lying on a bed with her head held high as if she were surveying her little kingdom & loving every minute! I love these guys....they are truly the BEST!!!! The way she runs into their house proves she loves to be there so when we go on our cruise next month, I won't have any concerns or worries!!! And every dog owner needs to be able to feel that way! With K-nines and Kiddos, there ARE no worries!!! Once again, gratitude & kudos to the De Beases!!!!!! I feel truly blessed that I found them!

Samantha is an older rescue dog and was very cruelly treated and abused. On our meet & greet, she walked right into the house, sniffed around & went right to Tracy & laid down. When I walked outside, leaving Sami in the house with Jamie, there were no barks or cries. Five minutes later Tracy brought her out. And then yesterday I left her there for 5 hours & when I arrived to pick her up, she just laid on the floor and looked at me...like "Oh...hi Mom!" She has to be hand fed & there were no problems with that as far as Tracy was concerned and I deeply appreciate her willingness to do this. I'm delighted with the care that Sami got and plan on doing a one overnighter before going to the Bahamas for 3 days in October or November. (

The kids were great with her and even had a "jam session" downstairs while Sami was there and since I always have music on, it didn't seem to have bothered her in the least!

I highly recommend Tracy, Jamie and the kids....it's definitely a house full of love and it shows!

I highly recommend this family!!! Our little girl was treated like a princess from start to finish.
This was our first time using DogVacay and we are SO happy we found Tracy and her wonderful family to watch Oakley. From the minute we made the reservation I felt so comfortable and knew that Oakley would get lots of loving and a great vacay. We were only gone for a long day, but Tracy sent the greatest pictures and texts so we'd see and know that Oakley was settled in and see what she was up to. It was clear when we got home that Oakley had a great day! Tracy was totally flexible on timing and was I loved that she printed out the info I sent about Oakley and had it on the fridge. Oakley is getting older so I really like that they only take one dog at a time and that she gets so much one-on-one loving and attention. Wouldn't hesitate to have Oakley take another Vacay here!

Winnie our English Bulldog had a wonderful stay and I couldn't be happier. I loved the updates that they shared and felt so comfortable with my dog there. What a wonderful family. I would high suggest Tracy and her family!!!
What a great loving family who cared for our dog as their own and kept us in the loop by giving us updates. I would not hesitate to use them again next time and would recommend with confidence.
Tracy and her whole family could not have been more welcoming! I have been very fussy about who we board our dog with, and I would trust our dog Ezra in Tracy's care again with no worries. She kept us updated with text message and photos, and I could tell that they paid attention to the little details I told them about Ez. We are very grateful to have found such good people who are willing to board dogs into their very loving home.

Traci gave more care and attention to both Rudi and our family than I could have ever expected. She was accommodating, communicative, and extremely thoughtful. I will definitely rebook with her again!
A-mazing experience! Tracy and family were all wonderful, warm, and welcoming, I don't know who was happier to meet them-- me or the pup!! I was completely at ease knowing Frazier was in a house full of love and attention... he probably wouldn't have minded if I'd stayed gone a little longer:)
