About Donna, Jan and Anneke

Here at Lola and Friends we believe each dog has their own personality and likes and dislikes, just as we do. Our goal is to make your pet as comfortable and happy as we can.It should truly be their doggie vacation! If you have an active dog we will take them out for long walks and ball play. We can hike at Weir Farm or take them for a leashed walk on the Ridgefield Rail Trail(depending upon their listening skills and parental approval). Even sneak in an early morning swim at one of the local lakes or they can take a romp in our doggie kiddie pool in the hot summer months. If your pooch prefers snoozing on the couch, while having their tummy rubbed during an episode of Animal Planet, we can abide their desire. We have multiple dog friendly couches (if parents approve behavior) and quite enjoy Animal Planet ourselves. We are true dog and animal lovers and have consistently had a dog in our lives for over 30 years. Our home is your pets home while you are away and we will treat them like family:)

We offer daycare and overnight services. The Howliday Inn, as we like to call it, is 2200 sq ft of dog safe space surrounded by over an acre of fenced property (both electric and physical fencing). Outdoor play is supervised. We require a meet and greet just to be sure we all enjoy each others company. ( Would you want to go on vacation with people you don't like?) Please be sure your pet is up-to-date on all shots, we require paperwork, and feel free to contact us with any questions.

We look forward to making new friends. You can find Lola on Facebook under "Lola Biggie Moof Moof".

(Please note that dogs over 100lbs have a surcharge of $15/day due to extra care and cleaning required).

Jan, Donna and Anneke are so kind and our puppy loves romping at their home and in their expansive yard. For this particular visit, the hosts went out of their way to accommodate our plans - for which we are very grateful. I highly recommend them!
Another great stay. Our dog hates the car, but starts to get excited as soon as we approach the house. The family is always great with our dog and he loves going back.
We were so pleased with Emma's stay with Donna, Jan & Anneke. We were particularly anxious because it was Emma's first time away from home for an extended period of time. But we were so relieved to see how well cared-for Emma was at their home. And it was reassuring to get daily photos of her stay. We will definitely consider having Emma stay with this family when needed in the future!!!

My pup always has a great stay! Thanks again!
Indie had a great stay! Lots of attention, lots of room to roam, lots of friends and lots of love. What else could one want?
The home was clean & air conditioned, the yard spacious & safe. Host seemed very relaxed & seemed to allow the dogs time to find their comfort zone. I will board her in this home again.
Donna, Jan & Anneke seemed to understand that our older rat terrier needed human time and closeness more than fellow dog time and responded beautifully. We really appreciated the pics throughout the day, as we're new to Danbury and this was our first experience with DogVacay. Thanks for the great care!

Thanks again for another great vacay for our Laela...she al it's didn't want to come home!
Our dog had a great stay with Lola, Cinta and Bella. We received pictures everyday, and couldn't be more pleased with Donna, Jan and Anneke. We will definitely use them anytime we're out of town in the future.
Jan and Anneke are terrific with their dogs and our dog. She has a great time at their house, and we would recommend them to anyone.
Thanks again for another great stay! Laela always feels at home with you!!
Phoebe considers Lola her big sister and Donna her second mother. She has a great time with Donna, Jan & Anneke and I am able to travel without worrying about her care and well being.
Phoebe always has a great time with Lola and her human friends. I know she is in caring hands. Win-win!!
Great experience again! Laela came back happy and we got a few cute photos along the way! Thanks Jan, Donna and Anneke!!
Another great stay with Lola and Friends!
Our bichon-poodle Chloe did great with Jan & Anneke! We are grateful that our dog could stay in a home instead of a dog boarding facility while we were out of town for a week. It was spring break, so were also really lucky we found great people to watch our dog when so many places were booked. They texted almost everyday to send photos & updates, which was really nice! Our dog boarder in the past never did that! They were also flexible with pick-up time, which allowed us to not stress when we hit traffic on the way home.

Loved the whole experience. Jan was super nice and made me feel comfortable with a leaving Laela with him and his family. I'm sure she is looking forward to another vacay soon. Thanks Jan, Donna and Anneke!
Phoebe reports another pleasant stay with Lola & Friends. She is clearly very comfortable with Donna, Jan & Anneke and their canine family. I am very happy to have a loving family to watch out for her when I am away.
This is Phoebe's 4th or 5th stay with Lola & Friends. Phoebe is about 10 months old and her new best friend is Lola. I leave her with Jan, Donna & Anneke with no worries and every confidence that she is in very caring hands.
This is Phoebe's 3rd stay with Donna, Jan and Anneke. They have always sent me photos of Phoebe while she is there and I am completely comfortable with the care and attention they provide for her. It is wonderful to be able to go away and not worry for a minute about how Phoebe is doing. I recommend Lola & Friends without reservation of any kind.

My 5 month old, very social, puppy had a great experience with Lola & friends. I felt good that she was in very capable, caring hands while I was out of town. Eileen W.
Rocksie had a good time, as always. Gained a bit of weight, but we'll work that off! Warm and loving home.
Our golden retriever had a great time at Donna, Jan and Anneke. Their garden is awesome for dogs, and all of them seem very nice and good with the dogs. We hope to be using them again soon. Our dog misses them already.
It was difficult to leave my 5-month-old pup for my 10 day vacation, but she was in great hands with Jan and family. They paid attention to her needs, ensuring she got plenty of exercise and playtime, essential for an energetic pup. And Jan provided regular updates and photos, which helped me relax and enjoy my time away. We both had great vacations!

We were so happy with our choice to leave our beloved pug Dudley with Donna and Jan. It was like a home away from home for him(actually probably better than home:)). He came back healthy, happy and well loved! They will definitely be the first people I call whenever we have to go away again!

Happy pups...happy owners! Our dogs raced from our car to look for Lola when we dropped them off! They just love going to visit Donna, Jan and Anneke! We're very grateful for their care and attention!
Our dog Toby just stayed with Jan and Donna and we couldn't be happier. I don't think he could be happier either. He was happy to see us but I think he is missing their adorable Rottweiler Lola. Jan was excellent communicating with us in a timely manner, especially since our return flight was delayed. He didn't even mind us picking Toby up at 10:00 p.m.!

Our dogs just have the best time under the care of Donna, Jan and Anneke. They come home so happy from playing with their dogs and running around the property. The best experience!
This is the perfect home away from home!
Our puppy Olive was cared for like she was
one of the family. She was very comfortable
around all the puppies and attached herself to Jan and Donna immediately.
I loved the update photo's of her activities and the fact that I was in contact with them at all times.
This is a lovely home and we will be bringing Olive to stay again next month!!

Donna, Jan and Anneke were great hosts for Molly! They kept me updated with daily texts and pictures and I could tell that they really enjoyed having Molly with them. Molly had a great time and enjoyed playing with their family. She adored Lola and even adapted to her first cat :) Molly was very well cared for and we will definitely be returning!

Very nice people. The property is fenced so that the dogs could run around. The dogs enjoyed sleeping on the couch. Their Rottweiler was sweet and played beautifully with my dogs. My dogs would be happy to stay there again.
Bailey had a great second visit! She was excited when we dropped her off and happy when we picked her up.
Jan, Donna and Annekke

Were great. I dealt with Jan primarily. When I dropped off Jo Jo. Instantly Jo Jo was in heaven. He made immediate friends with Lola. Jo Jo and Lola were playing hard up until I left. Jan was great he kept sending me photos of Jo Jo and Lola playing my favorite one was Jo Jo sleeping with his new friend Lola. I have nothing but great things to say about the experience. I will definetly use Jan and his family again for the doggie Vacay.

Always a wonderful time for my boys! They seem so happy to arrive- wonderful, attentive hosts! Thank you!
Just the best! Thanks as always.
Bailey had a great stay with Donna, Jan and Anneke. I can tell she was loved and had plenty of exercise. The day she came home, she spent on the couch resting. It was a nice switch, we usually board her at a kennel and she would need a lot of attention that first day home. We also received pictures during her stay so we knew she was being well cared for. We will definitely have Bailey stay with Donna, Jan and Anneke again.

Once again, we were thrilled with our hosts and Hank had a wonderful stay with his friends. Thank you!
This was Rocksie's first time away from home, and I felt really comfortable leaving her with Jan and Lola. They sent pictures of Rocksie meeting the bunny, discovering the chickens and going for walks. I know she had a blast---she does wherever she goes! The best story was when Jan told me that Lola took Rocksie's leash in her mouth on the walks and off they took together. Lola makes a good anchor for our spunky little jumping bean. (Lola is their dog, in case anyone is wondering!!!) Rocksie will definitely be back for more!

dante is a sensitive home-body maltese who hates being transferred to anyone else's place. donna, jan, and anneke took such good, loving care of him, that i don't think he even thought about home after the first few days. they even got him to eat, when he usually goes on a no-eating kick to show his unhappiness about being away from home. thanks guys. we'll definitely be back.

Our dog just came home from her second visit with Lola and Friends. We could not be more pleased with Jan and Donna's care of her. She is a very happy puppy who will miss Lola until the next time!
Our pup had the best time with Jan, Donna and Anneke! Right from the meet and greet I could see she was going to feel at home at their house. She seems to have thrived on their attention, thoroughly enjoyed playing with their dogs and had a blast running in their fenced yard. We were delighted to receive daily pictures and messages while we were away, especially because this was the first time we had ever left her. They helped us to realize how happy our girl was staying with them. She came home to us in great spirits, and pleasantly tired. We could not be happier about the experience! Thank you Jan, Donna and Anneke.

Donna and Jan were great! It was pup's first time away from home so we were nervous but they sent us plenty of updates and we felt completely reassured. Our pup (on the smaller side) got along great with Lola and came back ready for a nap. Couldn't be happier.

My border collies Jude & Jonah loved being at Donna, Jan, and their daughter Annekes house- they did not want to come home with me! I felt they were very cared for and loved and also loved getting lots of text message picture updates on how they were doing. Thanks! We will be back in the future!

I would totally recommend Lola & Friends to anyone looking for a home to leave their dog for a week or a month! Charlie was in good company of other dogs and feels safe in this home. (He is a blind dog so has lots of fears). This place was Pawsome!

Our dog, Hank, had a wonderful stay with Donna, Jan and Anneke! He is an anxious pup, and we were worried that he wouldn't eat or relax while we were away. He ate all of his food (he usually skips meals while we are gone) and he was given his senior dog meds according to instructions. He was treated like a part of the family, and he even made himself comfortable sitting in the lap of their sweet daughter. Hank loved his long walks and the other furry friends he made during his stay-cation. Bringing him home was the easiest transition ever! He was himself and so relaxed, and it gave us such a peace of mind. We will be sure to call the next time we are planning a trip and can't bring our beloved Hank, and we highly recommend your services to others! Thanks again for taking care of him as if he was your own! - Sarah + Ben

Our dog had a great time and was very well cared for. She loved Lola, the cat and the chickens. Jan took her on long walks on nearby trails and she enjoyed playing in the fenced in yard. Thank you Donna, Jan & Anneke! It felt great leaving Tobi in a comfortable home rather than a kennel. Thanks again.

Chelsea had a great time with Donna, Jan and Anneke. Once we got home all she wanted to do was sleep! They have a great property for the dogs to play and they do a lot of that. I received pictures everyday of their activities, this was very nice knowing that Chelsea has having a good time.

We had a great experience with Jan and Donna! They were very friendly and accommodating. I immediately felt comfortable when I met with Donna for our meet and great. They sent us pictures to let us know our Gabby was doing great! Our puppy came home exhausted -- her sign that she had a great time! We will definitely be back and highly recommend them! Thanks Jan and Donna :)

This was a fantastic experience. The hosts were incredibly flexible and loved having my dog at their home. The property is perfect to host dog guests and my dog had a fantastic stay with them!! Highly recommend!!
I was very pleased with the whole experience, from initial contact to picking up my dog. They answered all my questions, and are clearly as knowledgeable about dogs as they are passionate about them (they have three themselves!). They manage the group well and in introducing the dogs to each other. They sent some pics for even just the one day they had Bonnie, which was so nice.

My dog seemed happy and buoyant when I picked her up, and Donna, Jan and their daughter Anneke are all really warm and lovely people.

I will return again the next time I need doggie day care. I give them the highest recommendation possible.
