About Charlene

So many cuddles!

Please note that rate is $50/night during the holiday season.

I live in a 3 bedroom townhouse with a small backyard. I've grown up with dogs of all sizes (German Shepards, Labrador retriever, a poodle, Pomeranian and a Shihtzu) and love all dogs, but am currently not able to own one. I'll walk your dog at least 3 times a day, either around the block or at one of the parks nearby. There will be plenty of playtime and cuddle time! If it's a weekend, I may take your dog on a short hike with your permission.

I have regular weekday work hours at an office (I'm away usually from 8am-6:30pm), and your dog would be left alone and free to roam the house (or crate, your choice) when I'm at work. Hopefully your dog is good with other dogs, because there are many pet owners in my apartment complex and we would run into other dogs/cats on our walks.

Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to meeting your dog! I hope that he/she is not destructive and is potty trained.

-Charlene

Charlene was very attentive and responsive taking care of Buster a weekend I needed to go out of town. She was flexible on drop off and pick up times, which was very helpful in planning for my busy weekend. She posted pictures of Buster showing how happy he was to be in Charlene's care, and when I picked him up he was in great spirits. I plan to definitely book with Charlene in the future!

Charlene was very responsive and courteous. She took care of Oliver and sent several photos through the weekend. I believe that Charlene will do what she can to ensure your needs are met. Not only did she accept Oliver last minute, but did not push to get the reservation done. More on your terms in terms of what you want. I will definitely use her again if I travel without Oliver!

Charlene was so great with my Hershey! I'm truly an overprotective owner and she helped ease my mind by keeping me updated every step of the way.

Hershey is young so he had a few accidents in the potty department but Charlene was so accepting and understanding. I will definitely be leaving him with her whenever I am out of town! :)

Charlene is always there for us in a pinch!! We totally trust her to take fantastic care of our sweet pup, and she is an absolute joy to work with!! I cannot thank her enough!!
We are repeat customers!! My pup loves Charlene and enjoys staying with her. She takes such great care of him, and sends regular pics of my pup on their many adventures while I am away. So grateful for her help!!
Charlene took such great care of our big pup, Remi! She is super-sweet and easy to work with, and she is very responsive. She posts pictures daily, so we can see what Remi is up to. I know that Remi is in good hands when we are traveling. We will definitely re-book with Charlene.

Hurray! Charlene was great. Very responsive, sweet to our little pup, and always giving updates! Would book again 100%!!!
My little Chili dog was very well cared for by Charlene. She is a very accommodating and friendly puppysitter. I would be happy to work with her again and again. I highly recommend this lovely young woman. She's great!!!!!!!!!
My first time using DogVacay and after 2 other hosts flaked on me the last minute I found Charlene & Vanessa. Charlene was very sweet and professional, she give me a straight answer after only a few hours of our meet & greet. I left for a long trip overseas (22 days) and I never had to worry how my dog was doing because I received pictures and updates almost everyday, those girls sincerely love dogs and they didn't just feed and took him out for walks but played and did many activities with him.

Okay so let me be very clear. When I say, AMAZING. I mean just that. These girls are absolutely incredible. I went on a 2.5 week vacation overseas and was so nervous to leave my 9 month old Kennedy behind. From the second I saw Charlene and Vanessa walk out of their apartment to meet Kennedy, I felt a sense of ease. These girls have such a positive demeanor that I just knew their home would be excellent for Kennedy. I dropped him off and before I got home, I had received a photo update from them. WOW!! Kennedy was already settling in! How awesome! Over the 2.5 weeks that I was away, I think these girls sent over 20 photos. SERIOUSLY AMAZINGGGG! And not just photos of Kennedy lying around the house...oh nooooo. Kennedy was out on the town honey! Eating lunch, joyriding around town and so much more! I seriously felt that Kennedy was on vacation as well, which is how you want to feel of course when you leave your pup behind for such a long time. I will leave Kennedy with these girls without question. They are absolutely stellar. I just picked Kennedy up and he looks amazing. They gave him 2 baths over the course of 2.5 weeks! He didn't DIE to come back home with me when he saw me; which is a great thing because it just let's me know that he wasn't treated poorly. I am just so thrilled with these girls. Just thrilled!

They were awesome! I was nervous to leave my dog, Happy, with new people as her regular sitters were not able to watch her the weekend I was out of town. Charlene and Vanessa were attentive all weekend and eased my stress away. They were very responsible and reliable. They even gave Happy a bath that left her looking better than a professional groomer's work. I recommend them especially if you live in the downtown area. Thanks again, girls!

Vanessa and Charlene were incredible hosts. I had to leave town for work on a last minute shoot and these gals were beyond accommodating. I contacted them and they replied within 30 minutes. They were super flexible with drop off and pickup times and their spot downtown is very convenient. Not to mention, they are both incredibly sweet.

While my little guy, Teddy, was with them they kept me updated with amazing pictures, they gave him a bath, and when I picked him up it was apparent that he had been very well loved by our new favorite sitters.

I can't recommend these two more highly. Teddy has stayed with a few other DogVacay hosts and while the others were great Vanessa and Charlene are by far the best. With others it felt more like a business transaction but with Vanessa and Charlene they truly loved Teddy and took care of him as if he was their own.

All the stars for Vanessa and Charlene!!!

Charlene did an excellent job taking care of Salvador. He seemed very happy when we picked him up.
My experience with Charlene and Vanessa was delightful! Charlene and Vanessa were exceptionally accommodating for my last-minute holiday booking and even took my dog, Heidi, a night so not to interfere with my work/travel schedule. They were also incredibly considerate letting me know the breed and temperament of the other dog they were hosting; while Heidi loves making friends with all breeds, I know some dogs have special needs and is important to some owners. The girls shared adorable pictures of Heidi enjoying the park and relaxing, clearly not missing me a bit! They had a fast response time and were incredibly friendly and communicative throughout the entire process.

I definitely recommend Charlene and Vanessa and would love to have Heidi stay with them again.

Charlene and her sister Vanessa took excellent care of my Freddie. They were able to take him in last minute and updated me with pictures thoughput his stay! Freddie was not
only taken on frequent walks, he was also spoiled by going to their rooftop, having lunch by the pool and treated with all the love he is used to getting at home. When I picked Freddie up, he seemed happy and relaxed. I am sure he will miss Charlene and Vanessa and will be back soon for a vacation
I would highly recommend their service and I happy to know I finally found excellent and reliable sitters for my baby

Charlene and Vanessa took excellent care of our dog Duke on relatively short notice. Duke was happy when we picked him up and they posted lots of great photos of him during his stay. Many thanks.
