About Dianne

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi. I'm Dianne, an animal lover and activist for animal welfare. I live on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood. I've recently adopted a 6 year old miniature Schnauzer from the National Mill Dog Rescue. She is very shy but loves playing with and being around other dogs. I have a lovely fenced yard, use of a doggie door and furniture covers so your dog will be welcome to cuddle up on the couch or chairs. If your pup isn't able to use a doggie door, no worries. I will let them out every couple of hours.

I want to give your fur baby all the comforts of home while you are away. I am a dance teacher and work only a few evenings a week. When I'm at work, my husband, Frank, is home with the pups. I only host smaller dogs (up to 20 pounds) so your little one won't have to encounter a larger breed that might play too rough. I would love to pamper your little one with attention, affection and treats if permitted.

Dianne took very good care of my Roxy. Thank you!
If Dianne is available and you have a small dog, I would request a reservation. I flew in from Iowa for business with my dog, Baxterr. Dianne was so helpful and took great care of my dog while I was away. Baxterr really enjoyed Dianne as well.
I picked Dianne because she focuses only on small dogs. My dog is very shy and I have never left him with anyone other than family before. My dog came back happy, had a yard to play in, and I got picture updates while on my trip. I will use Dianne in the future.

Maggie Mae had a great time staying with Dianne and Coco. She played and also learned how to use a doggie door.

Dianne's set up is great for dogs. And I liked the fact that she fed each dog I'm a separate room.

We will definitely use Dianne again.

Lucy and Sugar were happy doggies! They played and played, I was happy they wanted to come home with me after the stay!
Dianne and her little Schnauzer, Coco, were perfect hosts to Ollie. This was our second year of his staying with Dianne and he loved it.

Dianne sends wonderful texts and pictures during Ollie's stays so we can see how happy he is. I couldn't imagine putting our doggie in an impersonal kennel where he is in a cage. We highly recommend Dianne's service!

I hate to admit it but the truth is, I am an overprotective dog mommy. Before finding Dianne, I only had trusted family or very close friends to watch our furry baby. We are lucky to have found Dianne, I am very satisfied, she has exceeded my expectations. She is warm and friendly. She responds to my emails and texts promptly and even sends me pictures so I can see my doggie while I'm away. The best part is, I know that my dog really likes her because it usually takes a long time for my dog to not cry when she's left at a new place and she stays with Dianne without the crying and howling! I highly recommend Dianne, she is truly wonderful!

Dianne took excellent care of my 15-year-old cocker. She had him for almost 2 weeks. Like many older cockers he has dry eye and constantly battles yeast growth in his ears. She applied medications for both judiciously and he had both clear eyes and ears when I picked him up. He also is a very picky eater and she fed him different types of food to get him to eat. I highly recommend Dianne.

Dianne was great with my pug Toby!!! I will no doubt use her again if she is available.
Very pleased with Dianne and the way she takes care of our little Phoebe. Nice lady who loves furry little friends.
This was the second vacation that we left our 2 small dogs with Dianne and we couldn't be more pleased.

Dianne is very caring and responsible. Her home is welcoming and our dogs feel secure when they stay with her.

Dianne is the only person we feel comfortable with for taking excellent care of our little ones when we go on "no dogs allowed" vacations.

Dianne will always have our confidence. She took outstanding care of Gypsy and Brownie last year as well as this past Labor Day weekend. They obviously feel at home with her. We are so thankful to have found such a caring & responsible doggy sitter.

I just picked up Phoebe our 18 mos. old Yorkie from her Vacay at Dianne's lovely home.
She stayed there for 13 days and seems to be very happy.
Dianne is a very nice a dog loving person, she kept me updated and sent me pictures! We will definitely make her home Phoebe's 2nd home while we're away!

She is so amazing and took the best care of my pup!
Hannah and Lilly had their first stay with Dianne and all went very well. She put up with my over-protective mama bear requests for the doggies. Ha ha!
Riley loves Dianne! She made sure he got his medicine and fed him his special diet with no problems.
Dianne was awesome, super accommodating to our schedule and great with the pup. She texted us pictures to let us know Bails was having a great time too. You can tell she truly cares about all of her four legged guests.
Dianne WAS awesome! Her gentle and caring spirit made my small and precious doggy feel right at home, better than home, really! A nice safe grassy area to lay in the sun or romp around chasing the other guest. It really was beyond my expectations!
Thank you Dianne!

She was so great with little Paltrow! When I came to pick her up she was running around wagging her tail, still playing with Danny, going to Dianne. I could tell that she had been playing and had fun. I felt so happy and relieved that we found someone she could go be with when I need to spend time away instead of having Paltrow be left all by herself all the time. I can't thank you enough!

Lucy, my Scottie, has been a guest at Dianne's home four times. When we arrive, and she realizes where she is, she wags her tail, and goes strait to Dianne. I can start my vacation with the feeling that my dog is happy, and I know she'll be well cared for. Thanks Dianne!

As always Dianne was great with our three boys. They love going to stay with her. She is very caring.
As usual, Dianne took wonderful care of Riley, including his medication and frequent, small meals.
I was nervous about leaving Kachina as we have never left her with anyone other than my Mom. Diane was so sweet, and patient with her. She sent updates, and some really cute pics while we were away. When we returned to pick her up, she went running back to Diane which is a wonderful sign of how great she was taken care of. We will definitely be using her again! Thanks Diane for taking care of our baby.

We are very thankful Dianne was able to watch our dogs for 3 days. We were worried about boarding our dogs with a brand new rescue from Foothills Animal Shelter, however, Dianne made our trip away stress free and did a great job taking care of our pups. Thank you Dianne!

This is the 3rd time our dog Buster has stayed with Dianne and we fully trust her to take awesome care of our elderly schnauzer while we are on vacation. Dianne always texts us pictures and updates while we are away and Buster just loves being at her house. She has a great backyard area for him to "sniff" and it's such a joy to know he's having just as much fun on his "dogvacay" as we are on our vacation!

I don't like leaving Maddie, but Dianne made me feel comfortable. She was flexible and easy to work with. Thanks for taking such good care of Maddie!
This is the second time that our dog Buster has stayed with Dianne and she is awesome! Buster always has a great time at her house and she takes exceptional care of him while we are away. I highly recommend her!
Dianne was great with my little girl! I have an 11 year old chihuahua and Dianne was so good with her! She sent me pictures to show me Paliki was enjoying her stay! I definitely recommend Dianne.
She was so great scheduling the meet and greet with me. My dog was so comfortable and happy with her.
Our doggie, Vincent, absolutely loves Dianne!!! That means, so do we. Vincent is a 12 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who has been spoiled to be around his family 97% of the time and almost never needed to be taken care of by a stranger. Therefore, he is a bit of a spoiled pooch and is very particular about who he feels comfortable with. Right from the start, he liked Dianne and has only become more comfortable with her the more time he spends at her house. This is such a relief because we are going out of town for 12 days and would be very stressed if we didn't know he had a wonderful home and caregiver. Thank you Dianne!!

Michael and Jessi Gremley (and Vincent)

We love Dianne - and more importantly so do our boys!! They had an awesome (or I should say Pawsome) time with her. We always use Dianne when we go away for a vacation and highly recommend her :-)
Dianne took such good care of Riley and helped him with his anxiety about other dogs, too. As a rescue dog, Riley needs an extra bit of understanding and Dianne has been very kind and patient with him. He loves going to her house.
Dianne was great for our dog, who is shy and the nervous type. The home was quiet and peaceful, exactly what we were looking for! She only had one other older dog and the two got along just fine. We will definitely use Dianne again for our next trip!

Dianne is an excellent dog sitter. She sent photos and kept us up to date on what the pups were doing. They really liked her and we would not hesitate to ask her to take care of them again if needed in the future. Dianne is kind and understanding. She made our pets feel right at home and even walked them every day they were with her.

Our boys love staying with Dianne! When we return they are just so happy and content (unlike when we took them to a kennels). She loves our boys :-) Dianne has a great back yard where the boys love to sunbathe and relax - and it's really great because she doesn't have any other pets (our boys are not very social with other 4 legged beings!) I would thoroughly recommend Dianne if you are looking for someone to care for your pet while you go away. This was our second time and will definitely use her again :-)

Dianne was so great for our little Buster! He stayed for a little over a week and I can tell had a wonderful time! Dianne was very responsive to e-mails/texts and sent a few pictures as well! We'll definitely be in contact with her again for our boarding needs!

Dianne is absolutely wonderful!!! Don't take my word for it, just take a look at Vincent (my 11 year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel). He is spoiled in the fact that I work from home and rarely need to board him. We tried 4 different Kennels and peoples homes. He would cry up a storm when we left him and always be anxious when we picked him up. Dianne took care of Vincent twice. Surprisingly, when we dropped him off the second time, he was excited to be there! More importantly, when we picked him up a week later, he was calm, happy and healthy. Thank you Dianne!

I was a bit nervous about leaving Maxie, my miniature schnauzer, with someone I didn't know, but I met with Dianne and had a good feeling about her, and I decided to take a chance. I am so glad I did! She took great care of my baby, and I would not hesitate to leave Maxie with Dianne again.

Dianne took excellent care of our dog while we were away for nearly a week. When we came to pick her up, our dog greeted us, but then trotted back over to Dianne excitedly! Dianne also communicated with us during our trip and sent pictures, which we appreciated.

Our boys had a wonderful stay with Dianne, she treated them as if they were her own. We will definitely use her again (if she'll have them, just hope they were good boys!!!!) A lovely person, lovely home, would totally recommend her :-)
Dianne took great care of our dog, Buster. I felt very comfortable leaving him at her house and in her care while we went on vacation. I would highly recommend Dianne for your small breed dog. She has a great back yard with nice grass and lots of shade as well.

Dianne took great care of Toby, she is kind, has a great backyard. We would use her again:)
Diane took very good care of Bobo, including her special diet. She took extra steps to secure her backyard because Bobo is so small. I could tell by Bobo's body language that she was comfortable around Diane. I have already requested future dates with Diane.

Dianne did a wonderful job. I wouldn't hesitate to leave my dogs in her care another time. She was flexible to work with us on last minute reservations and our dogs were so happy in her care. Thanks Dianne!!
