Can't say enough good things about Saranne. This was my first time using a dog sitter but certainly will not be my last.
Saranne kept me updated everyday with text and pics. She treated my dog as if she was her own.

Would definately recommend Saranne to anyone looking for a sitter.
Walker had a great time! I could tell he was spoiled with love and attention while we were away!
Thanks Saranne for taking such good care of Ranger!! He will be visiting you often ??
I knew when we did the meet & greet that Saranne would be perfect. And she was. Yogi is very stressed the first time he stays anywhere new(until he learns that Mom will come back!), and she understood him and helped him feel comfortable. She kept me up-to-date during the day, and by mid-afternoon he was settled and napping. Her knowledge of behavior and training skills makes her a perfect fit for any dog. Yogi will definitely return!
First and foremost, our pets are our family members. It can be stressful and unnerving to leave your beloved pet with "strangers". Upon our initial meet and greet with Saranne, I immediately felt at ease. She is very qualified in not only the medical aspects of dog safety, but also in obedience training. When I really became to trust and appreciate all the Saranne offers is around Thanksgiving when I received word that my sister, who was in the hospital in Louisville, KY; was not doing well. I left on a Saturday thinking I would return Sunday. However, my sister's condition continued to deteriorate and she died the following Wednesday. Saranne reassured me to not worry, she had everything with Jackson under control and for me to take care of my sister. SHe would update with photos allowing me to feel comfort in that Jackson was being well taken care of. These times are priceless to have someone you can feel comfortable with caring for you "family member". She is upfront, told me Jackson was a jumper (which we had been working on) and I so appreciated her honesty. Jackson comes home happy, he doesn't hesitate going into her house. I would use her without hesitation. Thank you Saranne!
Thanks Brandi's play date. She seemed to have a great time, and I appreciate the feedback on her demeanor and socialization skills. Since she's a rescue and still learning about her new, improved life, working with someone who's done so much training with dogs is very helpful. We'll be back.
Our Annie is a regular at Saranne's and always comes home happy and tired. We know she's getting kisses and hugs the whole time she's there because Saranne and Rick are true dog lovers. Thank you so much for loving our baby!
I love Saranne's Dog Vacay! My dog, Ollie, loves to go and is so calm and happy when I pick him up.
Elska had a test Daycare day before boarding for a few days. It's a lovely place, where she got lots of space and time to relax. It was great to know I found a spot where she doesn't get stressed too much when away from home. Plus I loved the photo update.
We love Saranne and she always takes great care of our dogs. They are both much happier when we pick them up from Saranne's house then when they go to a kennel. No stress and she always sends photos and updates, the kids love seeing their dogs are happy and safe (and so do we!)
Amazing! We get such a piece of mind while we are out of town, knowing our pup will betaken care of!!
Saranne and her husband were great. Our dog has had a great visit playing with the other dogs and came home happy. Saranne sent several pictures so we could see the puppy having fun. We will definitely book again.
Hank always has a great time!!! He came home freshly bathed after a long romp in the backyard!!!
Saranne and Rick are fabulous hosts. My dog, Addie, loves to go to their house for either daycare or an extended stay. She has fun playing with the hosts' own dogs as well as other client's dogs. Saranne has send me texts and photos to let me know how Addie is doing. If I have to be gone for any length of time, I feel secure knowing they are taking great care of my dog.
Moo starts wagging his tail the minute he sees me pack his doggy vacay bag! He's always thrilled to play with his friends, and just as content to come back home. Glad I have a safe, happy place for him to stay when I travel. Saranne sends texts and photos showing his adventures.
This was our first time using DogVacay, and Saranne was amazing! She sent us pics and updates throughout the weekend, and Apollo seemed to have a blast. It is so nice to know we have someone like Saranne to take care of our pup. We will definitely use her again and I highly recommend her!
Saranne sent me texts as well as pictures while we were gone and Capt had a great time again. I love knowing he is in good hands while we are gone. Thanks Saranne for all you do
Thank you so much!! Saranne was a life saver for us. We were gone for about 10 days and we knew our dogs would be super stressed if they had to go to a kennel for that length of time. It took Charlie a little while to warm up to a new place but Saranne was very patient and worked with him. By the end of the week he felt right at home.
Saranne sent us pictures and update throughout the week, this especially helped the kids who worry about their puppies! We will not hesitate to give her a call the next time we go out of town. This was a much better option than the kennel as both of our dogs came home happy and relaxed.
Thank you again for loving Charlie and Abbi while we were away!!
Moo is always happy to visit Saranne's house. He loves the pool, and loves all of the extra attention. I love getting photos of him, and knowing that he is part of the family/pack while he is there.
So happy to have a found a "home away from home" for Moo! He swam and played and got lots of belly and chin rubs. Frequent photo texts made me feel even more connected and allowed me to relax and enjoy my own vacay! We will book again.
Another great stay. Pups came back so tired from playing outside all day :-)
She was awesome. My dog had a great time and I received pictures and texts while we were gone. So glad a I found such a great place to leave captain. Thank you
Saranne and Rick did a wonderful job. Our dog definitely felt like she was home, away from home!
Saranne and Rick did a great job. They made sure our dog truly felt like she was home away from home.
Another great stay with Saranne. Duke always comes home happy, well- behaved and tired :-)
After getting stuck in multiple airports during a weekend of travel, it was great knowing that Saranne was flexible about keeping Griffon an extra day. Griffon always runs out of the car and into Saranne's house when we pull up, which makes it much easier for me to travel guilt free!
This is the first time we've used the in-home boarding option and we feel like we'll never go back to boarding kennels again. Saranne and Rick were both great with Duke. Duke is a stocky pit mix and even though he is a cuddle monster, he can be intimidating because of his size. Saranne knew exactly how to handle him and Duke was exhausted when we picked him up. I'm so glad we found DogVacay.
Another great stay with Saranne!
Another great vacation for Griffon! I love that I can drop him off with Saranne and enjoy my vacation knowing that he is having a great time.
Saranne was a perfect host! Griffon loved staying with her for a long weekend. He swam in the pool and had a great time playing with her dogs. He cannot wait to go back!
Max came home happy as can be! We were sent pictures of him playing in the pool and having a good time!
So glad my puppy was able to have a good time with other dogs and being able to work on basic commands.
