Hey fellow dog-lovers! You know those people who walk past your dog like this :O :D :') , that's me.

I've loved dogs for as long as I can remember, and grew to love them even more growing up with a Whippet named Lucky. I became a committed member of 'team dog' when I recognized how intelligent dogs are, how sensitive they can be, how much fun we can have together, and how calming and rejuvenating it can be to have dogs around. I'm a grad student, and if you've ever done something that brings you constant stress, each day, every day, you understand how much relief a dog can bring from that stress. This is what has brought me to this beautiful community, but I also recognize how I can help relieve your stress!

Growing up with a Whippet who needed a lot of attention and exercise, I learned the joys of walking with him. I also learned about the responsibility needed to take care of a furry family member, and have become attentive to the many needs of dogs. My beloved Lucky recently passed away after a long, loving life, so I'm looking to help heal that wound by enjoying some time with other dogs.

I share a common love with dogs (no, not fire hydrants), the outdoors! I am always in search of green space and love spending my time in parks, especially when there are dogs around. A typical day with me would definitely involve some fun park play time and meeting as many dogs as your pup wants to; finally, an excuse to be at a dog park! I also really enjoy dog cuddles, so if your pup is a lap dog or an aspiring lap dog, we'll have some great times together.

Due to roommate allergies, I cannot host at my own home, but am more than willing to spend a night (or a number of nights) at your home! Since I'm a student, on the weekends I work from home, but could do this work anywhere. I have worked as a housekeeper in the past, so I guarantee your house will be look exactly as you left it when you return.

I put love and kindness into everything I do, and it would be an honour to be able to spend some meaningful time with your loved pup!

There is no other person I would want to take care of my dog than Carley. She had a Whippet for 14 years and was the most caring, loving responsible pet owner you could imagine. You will be amazed at her level of commitment and attention to detail. Woof Woof - Translation.... your pet is saying THANK YOU right now!!

She is loving, thoughtful and considerate with dogs. I've seen her interact with puppies once, and they loved her just as much as she loved them. She made sure they didn't hurt each other and that they had enough water. You can trust Carley, because she is responsible and organized. She is loved by dogs and humans alike. I strongly recommend hiring Carley for dog walks and dogsitting!

Carley is a positive and enthusiastic dog lover who is responsible and kind with all pets. As a co-owner of a pet with her in the past, Carley is wonderful with dogs and it is clear that they love her too!

Carley grew up with a wonderful whippet and was a very responsible pet owner. Because she was around a dog all her life, she understands how they feel and behave. She is not afraid of animals. She has a true love for pets. I know any dog or cat would easily connect with Carley because they will sense that she cares.

I've booked with Carley twice now to walk my dog. Each time she was punctual and my dog came back happy and tired. I will use her services again.
Carley was great with our pup! Phoebe has really bad separation anxiety, so we were worried pet parents leading up to the night. As soon as Carley arrived, we knew everything was under control. Carley was patient with Phoebe and even sat with her by the front door to comfort her. She sent us updates throughout the night to keep us at ease, and we were finally able to enjoy a night out. You can tell that Carley really loves dogs and will go out of her way to make them (and their parents) feel calm and comfortable. Thanks Carley!

Carley was great!

I had just gotten a new puppy and last minute had the dog sitter I had previously set up to care for Stella (an Italian greyhound) back out on me. Thankfully I found Carley on Dog Vacay and she did not let me down one bit.

Carley was able to do a custom quote for me. She came over several times over the span of 2 weeks for 3 hours sessions to be with Stella so she would not be alone all day. She was very loving toward Stella and followed my instructions perfectly. Carley was a crucial aid in Stella's potty training. I was diligently working with Stella to make sure she made it outside to pee as much as possible and Carley did the same. She kept me informed on all the times Stella made it outside to go to the washroom and all the times she didn't. By the end of Carley's visits, Stella was able to make it outside to the washroom almost every time. Carley also always kept my condo in the exact shape I left it in (sometimes even better shape... thanks!)

Stella had a great time with Carley and looks forward to seeing her again. We will def be booking her again in the future.

Thanks for all your help! We look forward to seeing you again!

Carley did a fantastic job. We have a Great Dane pup who had stitches still from her operation and Carley kept her happy and well cared for. She not only looked after our puppy but also made sure we came home to a clean house. When our pup showed signs of being unwell, Carley took all the right steps to ensure she was ok. I would definitely recommend Carley to take care of your dog/pup.
