30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Dogvacay :) And Thank You for visiting our page :) PROFILE REVISED 7/2015

First we would like to thank EVERYONE of our prior VACAY guests for the AWESOME reviews!!! Without you guys; we wouldn't be able to help best suit dogvacay doggies, that will vacay with our family and yours (during overlaps) ;) OUR FAMILY LOVES YOU GUYS!!! Thank you, Sarah and Family WOOF!

*** BIO*** I am a stay at home mom of our two little girls (our Doggie makes three) and a Paramedic graduate. Our home is a little busy but fun and entertaining! Most of our family lives within blocks and are always at our home.Our neighborhood is Doggie Lover Friendly. We offer multiple services for your little one and limit nightly sleepover guests to one family at a time, max of two vacationers; with both parties meeting at meet-n-greet. WOOF :)

My whole life I have grown up with dogs: mostly doberman’s. Since birth until age 7 I grew up with 2 Doberman’s: one Large Red Female and Male Black Warlock Doberman. At the age of 9, Ralph was my first Black Min Pin. Since then I had Sable (black min pin) for 11 years until 2010, then Bella our red min pin came into our life. Bella is great and loves other dogs! When you first meet her; she will bark :) then is your BEST FRIEND!!!

Lucy always has a great time with her Aunt Sarah.
Lucy had a great time at her home away from home. Thanks for all the great pics.
As always, Teddy enjoyed his DogVacay with Sarah and family! It's his home away from home!
Another great stay with Sarah and Family! She is truly amazing! Kenzy gets so excited every time she gets to go to her vacay!
As always, Sarah and family were amazing!
As always, Sarah and family were amazing!
Sarah & her Family are the Best! From beginning to end, Very professional, Friendly, Considerate & Detail oriented. She covered all the basis, making us feel good about leaving our Doggie for almost 3 weeks. Rex (our Doggie) looked incredibly happy today when picking him up (& Super clean!). If we could give her 10 Stars, We would! We look forward to having Rex stay with Sarah & her Family again.
She is always very excited when we drop her off, she starts pulling towards the door. Thanks Sarah
As always Sarah and her family treated Bella as her own. Thanks again
Another great stay with Sarah and family!
Sarah was awesome with both of our pups every time they stayed with her and her family! :)
This was our first time with Sarah, Cucciolo was so happy and calm. Sarah did a awesome job, she always update me with pictures and videos. I would recommend Sarah to everyone and will certainly use her again.
My shitzu, Teddy, had a wonderful day at Sarah's house. It gives me peace of mind to have such a caring dog sitter. I'm sure everyone who uses her feels the same.
Sarah is amazing!!! She takes care of my 2 labs like they are her own. I feel so confident and safe knowing they are in her hands. I will use her every time we travel.
As always our dogs had a great time with Sarah and her girls! Sarah and her family are the best :)
Sarah was a god send for me. She is gentle and caring and she eased my concerns about leaving my 18 month old shihtzu. She communicated with me constantly and I know my dog had a great time. He is back home with me and is calm and relaxed. I am so happy to have found Sarah. She us wonderful and hope to use her again (if she is available)
Excellent experience. Sarah and her family treated Bella as she was their own dog. Highly recommended.
Our two dogs had a great time at Sarah's! They had a great new friend to play with and got lots of love from the kids! Thank you Sarah and family!!!
Once again Sarah and her family took amazing care of my two furry boys!!
My two pups love being at Sarah's! They always meet new friends and enjoy her girls!
What can we say about Sarah that we haven't said before.....LOVE HER!!!!
Sarah was great, and made me feel comfortable leaving Bullet at her home. She asked alot of questions to ensure his stay at her home was like being at his own home. She is intune with the personalities of the dogs she keeps, so she can assess what dogs will get along well together and have fun. She sent pics and even a quick video of her daughter playing tug with him. 100% better than boarding!
Sarah is wonderful. Rocky loves Sarah and her girls. He looks so happy, in her house. Sarah sends me email with pictures and videos of Rocky everyday which puts our minds at ease. Sarah takes good care of our Rocky. I would recommend Sarah to everyone and will certainly use her again.
This was the first time we were leaving our "baby" Kai and were very nervous. From the moment we met Sarah and her family at a preliminary meeting, we knew we made the right choice. Sarah is warm and caring, meticulous with details and her children were wonderful with Kai. Every morning of our vacation we were greeted with a message about Kai along with photos or a video. We will leave Kai with Sarah without hesitation whenever he needs his "second family"!
Another great stay with Sarah!
Sarah is always great and caring! My dog loves stay with Saraj family! Thank you
Sarah and her family are amazing! Kenzy had a great time with her - as always! So happy that we found her!
Thank you, Sarah and family, for taking such great care of our dog again! We so appreciate you!!!
Love the fact that Sara is always available. She is really good to Delta....will always use her services.
A pleasure as always....
Delta got to celebrate her 6th birthday with Sara and her family while we were camping. I believe that Autumn and Delta are becoming good friends. Thanks again, til next time.....
Sarah took excellent care of my dog. She kept me updated on how he was doing and he came home clean and well exercised. He had a great time while we were away!
As ALWAYS Delta had a blast, she really loves Sara and the girls. It doesn't help that she always has a friend to play with!!!
Sarah was a great host, she is very knowledgeable and caring and sent lots of pictures. Our Nicky looked very happy and he had some playmates too. A nice house, with fenced back yard. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.
Left my 9 month old Lab puppy for the first time with someone else outside our house. Sarah was great and my puppy had a blast. Sarah keep us updated everyday sending us pic of my puppy. Thank you Sarah!!
Teddy had an awesome time! He loves Sarah and her family and enjoys every minute of his dog Vacay!! -Doris
Another great stay with Sarah and her family! I am so glad that we have found her! Kenzy was super excited to got to Sarah's house!
I would absolutely recommend Sarah. She accommodated us with a meet and greet to our schedule. Our dog was totally happy there with all the attention. Thanks Sarah!
Another great dogvacay! Sarah and her family are AMAZING!
We feel like we've won the lottery in finding Sarah. She was so good with our 3 pups. She is very knowledgeable about their behavior & so very sweet they were immediately drawn to her. Her backyard is beautiful with lot's of room to run & play. Our dogs had a blast. Sarah kept us updated with lot's of pictures & texts throughout their stay which was great because it put our minds immediately at ease to see the great big smiles on their faces :) She even made our babies homemade
pb doggie treats which they loved. We highly recommended Sarah & her family . Thankyou again Sarah for taking such great care of our babies. You are the best.
After 3 attempts to book on dogvacay, we succeeded with Sarah! She was absolutely amazing and Shep had a great time!! We have previously used kennels claiming to be paradises but Shep always came home exhausted and depressed as if he didnt get much rest there. After this vacay, Shep was rested energized and as playful as ever! The pics and vids from Sarah were awesome. Will use her every time from here on out as long as she can take him.
We have never felt so comfortable about leaving our babies at home while we were away. Sara wrote us letters, sent us pictures and was so neat and clean. I felt like I had a live in. I would never trust anyone else again. Sara actually took time to play with them, left music for them, and made sure they were happy each and every day......making us happy. Love this company!
Awesome as always! Thanks Sarah
Sarah and her family were great with Teddy! She kept me updated daily with texts, pictures and videos. I can tell he was loved and taken care of very well. I will definitely leave Teddy in their care again! -Doris C
As always Delta enjoyed herself again....
Sarah was amazing as always! My dog having a blast in her house. We are so lucky that found her!
We love Sarah and her family! Thanks for all your attention, you are the BEST OF THE BEST! :)
Another vacation so that means another 5-star EXCELLENT review for Sarah taking care of our pups! She sent us several pictures/videos per day of them having a great time! :)
Sarah is fantastic! She took very good care of my doggy while I was on vacation. She sent me email updates with photos of my dog after every walk! This is the second time she's looked after my dog for me and I highly recommend her to anyone ( :
Our pups had the best time with Sarah C and her family! We received lots of photos and updates! It could not have been a better experience!! The pups will definitely be staying over again!
Sarah was great with Gunther & Elway again! She sent us several pictures/videos per day of them! :) They both had a great time!
Where should I being?! Sarah was AMAZING! She is so sweet, and attentive. Kept me updated the whole time, with pictures and detailed text messages. I would never ever leave my dogs at a kennel again. She even watered my Christmas tree and left Christmas presents to my poochies.

Did I mention she wanted to sweep the floors due to the girl's fur? Unreal!! She washed the water bowls every day, and wrote down any unusual behavior. She was probably a better mommy than me!!! hehe

I would trust Sarah with my girls anytime, and I recommend her 100%%%%. I am just SO glad I found her. I would leave my kids with her if I had any hehe. Thank you so much Sarah. God Bless!!!
Kenzy had another great time staying with Sarah and her family! She practically dragged me to the door when I dropped her off because she was so excited to be back! I feel so lucky to have found such a great place for Kenzy to stay when I can't be with her!
Kenzy had another great stay with Sarah & her family!
Lucy enjoyed another doggie vacation with her second family. She got to meet some new friends and even got some fashion tips from the kids.

Even though I miss my big furry daughter while I am on vacation, I always know she is in good hands with Sarah and her family. I always love the updates and photos. Thanks again for taking such good care of my big baby. She sends lots of hugs and sloppy, wet kisses.
Sarah is awesome!!!!!
Thanks for all Sarah!!! You and your family are the BEST! We feel very confidence and grateful leaving our dogs with you! We absolutely know that they couldn't be in best hands! Thanks for everything! We are blessed to count with your help!!!
I am completely sold on Sarah, her family and her dedication to the dogs. My dog arrives happy and comes home happy and content. We will use her services again and again.
Sarah and her family were great again taking care of Gunther and Elway! :)

Sarah and her family were great again taking care of Gunther and Elway! :) (We're starting to sound like a broken record!)
I couldn't be happier with our first meet-n-greet and our first night stay over with Sarah C. and her family. She is so professional and yet warm and caring about the animals. Their home and yard is spotless and I felt extremely comfortable and at ease leaving my dog with her. She is a take-charge person and a true animal lover. I love the way she kept me posted on my dog's first visit and even sent photos of him during the day. I will use her services again and have all the confidence in her ability in taking good care of my boy!
Sarah does an amazing job with our Pup. She goes the extra mile by letting us know exactly how he is doing several times a day, including sending pictures. I feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful, caring sitter for our first born!
Thanks Sarah for caring our boys! It's awsome to met you & your family. Of course, we recommend to anybody. See you soon! :)
As usual, the stay was flawless and Sarah and her family were super great.
Thank heavens for Sarah and her family. She was able to look after my dog on very short notice. What a wonderful family. They had a great big house and backyard for my dog to to run around and play. Sarah was super sweet, very accommodating, and sent me constant updates and photos on my furry child. I think Lucy is even sad that she doesn't have the kids to play with all day while me and my wife are at work.

Thank you so much for looking after my dog. I was glad to know that Lucy was able to hang out with you and your family and have fun instead of being at some kennel in a cage all day. I'll definitely be using your services again. I'll also be recommending you to anyone I know who has a dog.
Sarah was great! I was kept current on my pups stay through my daily updates while I was away! I could tell by the photos sent to me that my dog was very happy while she was there! I will definitely be using her again!!!!
Sarah and family are my go to, first choice, absolutely preferred babysitters when I have to head out of town. She communicates very well, runs her sitting like a business and is incredibly accommodating especially considering her work, school, and family schedule.
Thank you Sarah! Ash was very happy.
Sarah is amazing! My dog vacay with her for 18 days. I received picture updates and info almost everyday. I am so confident he had a great time in this wonderful family!
Sarah and her family were great again taking care of Gunther and Elway! :)
Sarah and her family were more than welcoming to both my dogs, my husband and I.

She was very comprehensive in the "doggie interview" so I could tell she was concerned about their (my dogs') well-being and also, about keeping up with their daily routine.

She kept us up to date with pictures, texts and emails and you could tell that the dogs were having a blast!

All and all, I would highly recommend using Sarah for any dog reservations your family may need!
Our baby girl was well-cared for. Sarah asked lots of questions and gave us a checklist before we arrived. She introduced our dog to hers outside and walked our baby through the whole house to get used to it. She was prepared when we arrived and when we picked her up.

She has cards and runs her sitting like a business. I would definitely like to use her again next time we leave town and can't bring our pup with us!
Sarah and her lovely family watched my dog over the holidays. I am new to the area and couldn't bear boarding her for two weeks, but having her in a home with kids completely put my mind to ease. Despite it being the holidays, Sarah communicated flawlessly and I never worried that my pooch wasn't being cared for. I won't have any reservations putting Sarah at the top of my list for future trips.
Sara is awesome, we are thankful that she is avaiable even on short notice. Delta loves her and her family very much. Can't wait til the next time Delta gets a little vacay.
My yorkie's vacation with Sarah C and her family was awesome. Ricky came home happy and a little tired from all the play and exercise. Sarah sent us photo's and emails on his activities which helped us with our separation anxiety. He was as loving as ever when we got home. I recommend Sarah highly to others who don't want their dogs to be mad at them when they take a vacation! Patty V
Great environment for my two dogs. The dogs were well taken care of for a week long vacation. Great experience with this caring host and family.
Our two pugs came back from Sarah's a little sleepy but very happy. It is so hard for us to leave them, so it was great that Sarah kept us abreast of their activities via pictures and videos. Very good environment for our sensitive little men.
Sarah took great care of my 9 year old Yorkshire Terrier, demonstrated by the daily pictures and emails. He got more attention in her home than ours. Her family took him on outings, walks, swimming and kept him constantly active. I would definitely be comfortable having her take care of Rocky again!
Sara and her family were absolutely wonderful!! The things that she did to prepare herself was very reassuring, to think that someone else could take care of my dog for us was a good feeling. I really enjoyed seeing and hearing about her daily updates gave me a piece of mind while on vacation. I would definitely use her again!!!
Sarah and family were great. We could not have chosen a better family with children who love dogs. Zeus was welcomed by their family incl their lovely children. I would always feel that Zeus is in the best of hands while away. We would not have to look any any place else as this is the place for Zeus.
