I felt Dawn was great with Frank & Georgia. They were able to roam around with the other dogs inside and out and have their own bed areas inside and not secluded from the other others. Loved it!
While we were gone our dog Murray got sick. Dawn was concerned for him and called us as soon as it looked like he might need some veterinary attention. We drove home from our vacation and met Dawn at the vet. She stayed with us to report the progression of symptoms to the vet and was very helpful in the process. Our dog spent the night in the hospital receiving fluids and medications. He came home the next day. It was traumatic for us, especially given that Murray the Dog received a dire diagnosis. Three months later he is still with us, on lots of meds, and doing well. It took me this long to write the review as we were fairly traumatized by the experience, but not due to anything Dawn did. In fact, she handled the situation as well as could be hoped for. I really appreciate her concern for and care of Murray.
Dawn and family are very friendly and easy to deal with. They took great care of our dog and we loved getting the daily updates and photos. We recommend Dawn and will use her again in the future.
Dawn did a great job with our puppy! She came back happy, tired, and clean! Rocky is a wonderful host-dog, and we couldn't be happier with the experience.
Mandy was with Dawn for 6 days. She was happy and enjoyed her stay. She made some good friends with the other dogs. Dawn sent pictures so I knew how Mandy was doing during my time away from her. I will ask her to take care of Mandy the next time I leave town. Thanks Dawn!
Thank you for taking such good care of Beau - he had a great time with Rocky, Bear & your two retriever guests! We will definitely be making future DogVacay reservations with you!
Dawn...I am so pleased to have found you and your family...and of course, Rocky! I am so happy Maggie had such a good time, especially thanks to your son and letting our River Dog Maggie enjoy the river. I'm sure she would be happy to know she gets to come back soon!
From the pictures and videos that Dawn sent me, it was quite clear that Leland settled in comfortably, and was having a great time with the other dogs! We'll definitely be bringing her back!
Olive had a WONDERFUL time at Dawn's. She was able to play with other dogs and get some fresh air during the day. She loves sitting on laps… Dawn and her family were more than willing to let her and give her lots of love and attention. I was afraid she wouldn't want to come home after living it up at Dawn's. What a great experience for her!!! We will definitely be using Dawn again.
Dawn , thank you so much for taking such good care of Max. We were able to enjoy our vacation in Sunriver with our family visiting from England knowing he was in such good hands. We enjoyed seeing pictures of him every day and we cannot remember when he last smelt so good after you gave him a bath.
Dawn was great! She sent me photos everyday showing the fun Cocoa was having. I think Cocoa wanted to stay when we picked her up. I will be using Dawn again, and bonus for me, she lives two blocks away!
Sorry for the delay...no excuse since Dawn deserves great reviews. She took good care of our baby. Looking forward to more fun days at your place. Thank you.
Dawn clearly enjoys her doggy visitors and takes great care of them. She sent us many fun pictures of Yogi playing and we knew he was in good hands! He'll definitely stay with Dawn again soon. Highly recommended!
Our dog Chasca had a great time with Dawn and her family! We enjoyed getting the photos and video while we were traveling. We could see our dog was having a good time while we were too.
I absolutely loved the experience with Dawn's dogvacay! My puppy Shevy had such an amazing time with her! She planned activities such as hay hunts, gave the pooches innovative games and activities and kept them so busy that Shevy didn't know how time flew. He also became much more calmer and confident after stay at her place. Rocky (Dawn's pooch) is a superstar who is very friendly and makes the guests feel at ease. Dawn was very prompt with her updates and followed all our suggestions perfectly making Shevy very comfortable and safe. Her home is located in a very safe location with no fast-moving traffic and plenty of area to run, walk and trees with shade that the dogs just love. Shevy absolutey loved her. We had complete peace of mind when we left him with her. Shevy can't wait to go back!
Our dog Remy had a great time with Dawn. She was very careful to follow his diet. Remy enjoyed playing in her fenced yard & cuddling with her. Dawn sent daily pictures & was very prompt answering messages. I would definitely book with Dawn again.
Sorry for the late review. Luna has a blast coming over during her first visit. She LOVES playing with Rocky. Dawn is so awesome and her home is in a great location. Definitely recommend her.
Luna always loves to come over Dawn's home and play with Rocky! It is so great to have Dawn accommodate our 12-hour work schedule. She is awesome and her home is great for Luna. Thank you for your wonderful service. We hope to see you again soon.
Dawn is so wonderful and sweet to our puppies! They have such a good time and always come home exhausted from playing so much!
Great experience! Dawn was very attentive and accommodating. Also a very nice feature is the flexibility in drop off and pickup times. It was nice that the girls had a large yard to run in, and other dogs to socialize with. They weren't stressed out as they typically were from being boarded in a kennel. Highly recommend Dawn!
My dog Jack had a wonderful time at Dawns home playing with her dog Rocky. Even tho Jack was there for a day play date, Dawn sent me some adorable photos of Jack and Rocky playing and a note about what they were doing.Jack definitely will be excited to go back.
Dawn was great...our Luna had so much fun. She came back to us with all smiles and wagging tail. We will definitely go back and hope our schedules match. THANK YOU for taking good care of our family member. Really appreciate your flexibility adjusting with our schedule.
My pups had a great time! Dawn and Family cared for them last year and I still have a positive impression of them! She has plenty of room for them, another dog to keep other dogs company, texted me with updates and regularly and often, and bathed both of them before I picked them up! I have a puppy and wasn't worried about her while she was with Dawn.

I definitely recommend her and her family!

Thank you Dawn!
Dawn is absolutely AMAZING!! She took my pup out to play and run everyday and sent photo and videos daily to show how much fun my pup was having. I sure missed him, but he looked like he was having a blast and Dawn made me very comfortable leaving him in her care. Definitely would recommend Dawn and would use her again and again!!
Fantastic. Our 2 dogs had the best time and Dawn even fixed them a special Thansgiving dinner after dressing them up in authentic pilgrim gear. Our dogs were very happy after a week stay and Dawn gave them a bath too.
This was our first experience with dogvacay and it was such a relief to have our baby loved and cared for in a home setting. Dawn took great care of her and kept us updated with photos and videos the whole time. We picked up a happy and tired puppy. Will definitely use again!
Dawn is such a pet lover and enthusiastic caregiver that our dog Lily had a wonderful vacation. We received several photos and videos during her stay. I could not ask for a better Pet caretaker.
Dawn was awesome! My 3-month old Miya had a grand time during her stay, playing with Rocky and her other fur friends. And Dawn sent daily photo updates which was very nice. We will definitely recommend and use Dawn again!
Harlee had a great time at Dawn's. She was obviously well cared for while I was away and had several other fur friends to play with. Will definitely use Dawn next time we need a Dog Vacay!
Dawn and her family took to my Grace like one of their own. I glad to know she has such a nice family to stay with when I go away.
Our dog had a great time and was tired but happy to be home.
Our dog really enjoyed his stay with Dawn. She genuinely cared about our old dog and his well being. She was extremely nice and her dog even let my dog have the coveted spot at her feet at her desk. It was so nice to not have to worry about our dog while we were on vacation. I would definitely recommend Dawn and use her again.
Dawn is the best! She took such good care of our Rat Terrier Tinkerbell that we think Tink didn't want to leave! This is where Tink will stay anytime we need to be out of town. Finding someone like Dawn is a blessing! Now we can go out of town for long weekends with no worries! We will recommend Dawn to anyone who is looking for quality care!
Thank you DogVacay and thank you Dawn :)
Dawn and her family were very kind and attentive to our golden retriever, Ripley. You know when your dog is happy and well cared for by others and that was the case with Dawn. We will definitely contact her again for Ripley when we go out of town and I recommend her to anyone needing overnight dog care.
