About Connie

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Holiday rate for boarding is $35 per day.

I have always been a dog lover and have been around dogs my whole life! We have a Golden Retriever named Oliver. He is one year old and has completed obedience training to get his Canine Good Citizen certificate! He also recently completed testing and is now a Therapy dog!

We have a large house with a nice fenced-in back yard with plenty of space to run and play. Our neighborhood has wonderful walking trails where we take daily walks! Oliver loves other dogs and looks forward to having a friend to play with!

You can travel and leave your pup with me and know that they will be taken care of just like he or she is a part of our family!

I have had bad experiences with Labrador retrievers damaging my house and therefore I am unable to host them.

I do separate dogs while they are eating, so there isn't ever any food issues come meal time.

I have had bad experiences with Labrador Retrievers damaging my home and therefore cannot accept any Labs that are younger than two years old.

All dogs need to be current on their vaccinations, and flee/tick preventative.

Price is $30 overnight. On pickup day, pickup is by noon, or an additional $15 will be added.


I love to take pictures so photos of your dog and updates can be sent to you upon request!

Connie and Oliver were great hosts! We needed to leave Beau our 8 month old Golden Retriever for a week while on vacation. After initially calling some local kennels and finding out he would be in a cage all day, my wife found dog vacay. Connie was responsive the entire process. During Beau's stay she sent pictures and video everyday that the entire family enjoyed of him playing with all the dog guests. He came home needing a vacation from his vacation! I would highly recommend and will use Connie in the future.

Duke had a GREAT time at Connie's! He was exhausted when he got home from all the fun. Connie sent us so many picture and vidoe updates, which we really appreciated! Thank you Connie and Oliver!
Connie is a warm and amazing person. I felt immediately comfortable and my dog clearly warmed to her upon arrival. Connie's house and property are a an active dog's dream. Highest recommendation.
Awesome! This was a last minute reservation, Connie was available and I'm so thankful. She was very flexible and friendly. I felt comfortable leaving my dog and she enjoyed taking care of him. I highly recommend Connie....Great Choice!!
Connie, her family and home were the perfect thing I needed to put my mind at ease while traveling. She was continually sending updates through video and pictures. It was apparent my dog was a welcome friend in their home. I would highly recommend Connie to anyone!! She treats your pet like family and what more can someone ask for !!

Connie was responsive (even with her recent move) and helpful in giving me a piece of mind when I can not be with my fur baby. Oliver is a charm too. Thanks!
Connie and her family were perfect for our 2 dogs! We have a Golden/collie/shepherd mix and a Min-Pin mix. Connie's dog Oliver was a wonderful buddy for my dogs. They had lots of fun playing in the nice fenced yard. We are so thankful to have found Connie. She is wonderful to work with. She sent lots of pictures and some videos. This was only the second time I had ever left my 2 1/2 year old dog and Connie's communications and pictures were really appreciated! My dogs had a terrific 5-star visit.

I am so happy we found Connie! Connie and her family were a perfect match for our Boxer and German Wirehair. The yard and set up was perfect for them. We were also thrilled with the updates and pictures. This was our first time using DogVacay as we are new to the area. Our previous sitter actually had a similar set up so we were thrilled to stumble across DogVacay and Connie. Highly recommend!

Fabulous, 5-star experience! Miss Connie was fast and friendly when responding to all of our questions. Easy, breezy Meet & Greet and drop-off/pick-up. We received a ton of pictures and videos - of our pup having a great time! Would recommend! & would stay again and again!...

This was Cece's second time staying with Connie and she seemed to just love it. I also so appreciate Connie's flexibility and pick up / drop off were a breeze. Thanks so much!
We recently moved and were looking to board our 6 month old Labradoodle for the weekend. I was very nervous about leaving him for that period of time, but saw such glowing reviews for Connie that we decided to give it a try.

What a wonderful experience! The house and yard were spacious and beautiful. Hudson had tons of room to romp and play. Connie sent pictures and updates a few times per day which really put our mind at ease. Our housebroken puppy reverted to an UN-potty trained puppy, but those accidents were met with graciousness and good humor.

It was clear that our dog was made to feel a welcomed part of the pack for the weekend and we could not be more grateful to Connie and her sweet natured dog Oliver.

I would absolutely recommend Connie to anyone that needed smart, loving care by a knowledgeable, empathetic and patient sitter.

Hudson looks forward to his next visit!

Couldn't have been a better stay! Connie is great with our dog. Our 9 year old golden wanted to stay after the visit because she was having so much fun playing with the other dogs. Would absolutely recommend Connie for Daycare, overnight, or week long care for anyone. We have used her for all these services and can't say enough about how great Connie is.

Connie is wonderful. Stella, my dog, stayed with Connie, her family and her personal pets for 18 days. Stella had a great experience, received great care and came home a happy dog. Would choose Connie to dog sit Stella again when I travel. Excellent service.

Connie was an awesome pet sitter! She responded to my request within minutes and was able to day sit my dog with only 12 hours of notice! Her quick response and easygoing manner with pick-up/drop-off made the whole process of finding a sitter in short notice stress-free. My pup usually has a little separation anxiety when I leave him but he had no problem with Connie. He spent the day hanging out in the yard with her family and got to spend some quality time cuddling on the couch - his favorite activities. We will definitely be using Connie again!

Connie was perfect for our dog. Ginger seemed very happy when we picked her up. We had to stay extra days and Connie was very understanding and accommodating. I would recommend Connie to anyone. So glad I found her!
Connie was so amazing, I can't say enough wonderful things about her and Cece's (my dog) experience. She was really helpful and accommodating with my schedule. She also sent tons of pictures showing how much fun Cece had - it totally made my day. Thanks so much for everything!!

I loved our experience with Connie! She was very accommodating, and gave me lots of updates on how our puppy's stay was going. I would love to use her again in the future!
Best doggie daycare experience we have ever had. Easy to set up, drop off and pickup went flawless. Flexibilty of the host made it work for our schedule. Connie is so nice and wonderful with our dog.
This was our first time leaving our pup with a sitter and Connie was fabulous from start to finish! She was always there to communicate and sent lots of great photos. Our pup came back to us happier than we could hope for. We will definitely be going back in the future!

ANOTHER GREAT EXPERIENCE with Connie and family. Ariana is always very well taken care of!!!! She loves playing with Oliver and she is always lookiing forward to another stay with them. We are always happy with them. Thanks a bunch Connie
Great Experience! This was the first time we were leaving our 6 month old puppy with someone and the experience with Connie was great. She met us and our puppy before the actual reservation and the chemistry was immediate. During our trip we received many pictures and updates of our puppy having a great time! Our very first experience with Dog Vacay was pawsome!

I was so fortunate to find Connie (and her family) to take care of Pip. From my very first interaction with Connie (she is amazingly responsive) to our initial meet and greet (she invited us into her home, we met Oliver and her entire family, spent some time with them to see how Pip acclimated, etc.), the entire interaction was fantastic. Most importantly, Connie sent me messages and pictures of Pip playing and bonding with friends and family. Pip was immediately part of her family and made me feel so relieved that he was in great care. Connie will definitely be our "go to" dog care provider from this point forward. Thank you Connie for making it so easy on us. Kathy

Chloe loved her stay with Connie and Oliver. She came home happy and tired. I appreciated and enjoyed the photo updates ---- excellent photos of Chloe. I will use Connie again, and will recommend her.
ANOTHER great stay with this sitter - my dog was well cared for and had lots of fun. Very patient sitter and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone!
First time using Dogvacay and the experience was wonderful! Connie was very patient with all my questions and helped calm some jitters. My dog came home happy.She was always good at keeping us updated with pictures and details while my dog was in her care. Highly recommended sitter, many thanks Connie!

Connie was great with making my Star at ease and welcomed in her home. Will definitely go back.
Again!!! Another great experience with Connie and family!!!! Definitely reliable and very friendly family. They do love dogs and keep us posted with tons of pictures and videos!!!!
We went to Dubai for a week and were worried about leaving Ariana since there was not a slight chance to bring her with us.
We left Ariana with Connie and her family. She was AWESOME, we had an 8 hr time difference but she was GREAT communicating with us.
Ariana had a blast and enjoyed herself very much. Oliver and Ariana seemed to have found their lost brother/ sister and it was very nice to see that she was taken care of as if she was part of their family.
We HIGHLY recommend Connie and her family to Petsit your pup!!!!!!
We now know that we found her a home away from home when we need to travel.
Thank you Connie
and Oliver ??????

Connie was WONDERFUL! She sent tons of pictures and videos and was flexible when we asked to change our pick up time. Our lab Happy clearly had a fun time, he has slept since we picked him up yesterday! We already booked another stay for him and I know he'll be well taken care of!

Connie and her dog Oliver were fantastic in taking care of our dog Sayla during our recent trip to Myrtle Beach. We normally take Sayla on our trips to our condo but didn’t think it was in her best interest because of the heat and restrictions on pet access to the beach during the summer months. Our normal PetVacay host was out of town and we were lucky enough to find Connie who lives just two blocks from us. Connie kept us posted everyday with pictures of all the great activities Sayla was participating in with Oliver such as playtime in the big back yard, evening playtime in the house, and a trip to the new walking trails in Fredericksburg. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our special pet. We HIGHY recommend and totally trust Connie and her family.
