About Dawn

My passion is pets! I am a former kindergarten teacher turned stay-at-home mom with three school-aged children. I am located in St. Clairsville, Ohio, just minutes off of Interstate 70. We have a very pet-friendly home, with an extremely welcoming five year old Labrador Retriever as our permanent resident. We have a large fenced-in yard and are just minutes from a walking trail. With all of my children in school, I have many hours to devote to making your furry family member a member of our family, too!

Dawn is definitely a 5 . She is the best. She treats our dogs just like family, I would absolutely recommend her!
Dawn is excellent! My fur family was treated like one of her family. She gave them love and sent me updates via text. Highly recommend her to any pet owner.
This was for my mom's cat (my mom doesn't have a computer). She was very happy with Dawn and would recommend her to others. She kept her informed and even sent her pictures of her cat which made my mom very happy while she was away!
Where do I begin... I took our 8 year old puggle named nugget to have a meet and greet with dawn and her family....I knew from my first impression that nugget would be in GREAT hands....this was an understatement....nugget is very shy around adults....but warmed up to Dawn quickly....I have never felt good leaving our baby anywhere...except at Dawn's....I received many texts and pictures of nugget throughout their day.....I was able to enjoy my vacation while he was having a blast at "camp" as we call it.....

OMG......we have discovered new friends! Our two small dogs took to Dawn and her family immediately. Dogs can tell when they are in the presence of dog lovers. :) We took them for a short visit before the over night stay and it went well with the entire family including Dawn's very friendly lab. So great to know when we leave them we do not have to worry. The overnight stay went well and Dawn kept us well informed with pics and txts. When we picked them up our dogs were rested and relaxed from all the petting, attention and love they received at Dawn's home. Thanks Dawn for loving dogs like we do!

Dawn did an amazing job with my Roxy. Treated her like one of the family. Sent me photos through out the week, and showed lots of love to my baby. Thank you Dawn, your the best!!! A++++++++
She was absolutely wonderful, she treated my puppy very well and I was very pleased with he routine in how she took care of him and everything. Sent me plenty of photos to ensure me that he was doing well. I will definitely come back if I need to board again and I would highly recommend having any dog stay here to anyone!

Dawn was great! I have a 4 month old puppy that I never left anywhere before and her whole family loved him. I got tons of photos and messages about how he was doing throughout the day. I was in the area for work and will definitely use her again next time I'm there. I hope to find someone as great as Dawn near my house!

Dawn is an absolute gem!! She took wonderful care of our boys while we went South to see our son graduate from Basic Training!!

She played with them, took them on walks and made them feel at home while they were with her and her family.

I HIGHLY recommend Dawn to ALL who have anxiety about where to take their beloved family members when away from home. She is a sweet lady who has a genuine affection for canines!!

Thanks so much, Dawn!! You and your family are awesome!! :)

Dodge loved staying with Dawn and her family! We will definitely book with her again if we ever need to go out if town again. Dawn took him for walks and gave him lots of love. Very satisfied customer!
Dawn was wonderful with my dog! he slept the whole ride home from her house he was fired from all the fun he had. I was able to relax and not worry while out of town knowing he was in good hands. thank you so much!!!
Dawn, did a fantastic job keeping our dog Black Jack. His first time with her and her family. We were so pleased with his care and how she treated him we will be happy to use her services in the future.
Simply the Best!! I am thrilled with the love, care & fun my girl Rocksy (2-yr old yellow lab) had yesterday with Dawn & her sweet pup Putnam!! It was the very 1st time my girl has been away from me... It was a rainy dreary day, pups were in & out! Paw prints on the floors, no problems! Dawn played games with them inside & out. She sent me text updates & photos! A true blessing she is... I just can't rave enough! She endured many slobbery puppy kisses & sloppy water bowl messes! I'm just so heart happy to have found Dawn! She gave Rocksy so much "Love" & that means the world to me! I can't wait to get our next stays booked!! Rest up Putnam, she'll be back soon XOXO

Our dog (Ivy) and family had an excellent and wonderful experience! Dawn took exceptional care of Ivy. Dawn made Ivy feel at home and part of her household for nine nights. Dawn kept us updated regarding Ivy with pictures and text messages even while we were out of the country. The experience was so amazing for Ivy that we are sure she was sad to leave Dawn's household.
The service, and in particular Dawn, is highly recommended. We cannot express enough positive comments about the love and dedication that Dawn has for dogs. We are thankful for finding Dawn and will certainly be sharing Ivy with her again!

To be honest, at first I was skeptical when I located dogvacay on line, because no one had ever heard of it. However, after meeting with Dawn, I was very impressed and knew that my dog would be taken care of. We appreciated daily updates/pictures. In fact, we shared the pics/updates with our friends, and they were amazed at the care our dog was receiving. The best compliment that I can give Dawn - is this was my dog's home away from home. I would definitely recommend her to all my friends and will use her services the next time we need to board our dog.

Dawn was amazing with our dogs. The went the extra mile to make sure they felt right at home. She played with them and walked them throughout their stay with her. She only takes a few dogs at a time so she can devote the love and affection they deserve. We highly recommend Dawn and will definitely book with her in the future .

We found Dawn here on DogVacay, and are so grateful! She is so loving with our dogs. When we are out of town, we know we don't have to worry because our dogs are in great hands. :)
Dawn is amazing! My dogs go to her house frequently and she comes to my house to see them too! Her family is so kind and good with my babies! They sleep in bed with her and she sends texts and pictures and updates! I would HIGHLY recommend her!
I want to thank Dawn G. for the wonderful , caring service she gave to my little fur children, and to us when going out of town for 4 days. She sent pictures of Nikki and Jada everyday, and texted me about their daily activities which gave us peace of mind. Everything was perfect when we walked back into the house . She left a nice letter and doggie cookies for the little girls. It is so important to find someone you can trust in your home , and not only watch, but lovingly care for your 4 legged children. Dawn gave all that to us. She has a kind ,caring , warm and playful personality and my little girls ( cocker spaniels) took to her from the very start. I will be using Dawn's services in the near future. My little girls will also look forward to all the attention they get. Thanks Dawn!!!
Myra and Chris Horne :) :) :)

OMG!!! Dawn is awesome! Her entire family was great and Putter is such a sweetie! Sophia and Malka had a great time and has a foster family when we have to go out of town. Dawn was so caring and understanding. She sent several pictures and texts letting me know how they were doing and the activities they were learning with her children. They even learned to play hide-n-seek with Vincent. I feel so blessed to have found Dawn and her family and extremely grateful for her opening her home up to my babies and taking such good care of them when I had to go out of town without them. When we arrived to pick the dogs up and we were talking about their stay I knew that the dogs had a great time when Sophia my Great Dane went up to Dawn and put her head on her lap while we were talking. She is truly a wonderful person who loves animals. Dawn I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Robin.

p.s. Sophia and malka miss you guys and can't wait to come back. woof woof!
