About isabelle

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Isabelle and I live in the Northwest quadrant of Columbus with my teens (age 15 and 16) and our dog Kira, a 3 years old boxer). We have a big fenced yard where your dog will be happy to play. I am a teacher and I will be glad to watch your dog(s) over the summer, on holidays or on week-ends (Friday from 4pm to Sunday). Sometimes, week days can also be available. It depends on your dog's needs. So please don't hesitate to ask. I have been with Dogvacay for two years now and have watched many dogs who were all fantastic. We take our boxer, Kira to the Godown dog park quite often, and would love to take your dog along if you wish. We also walk her along the river or at the park next door. I will adapt to your dog's needs so it has a pleasant stay with us. Please, don't hesitate contact me if you have any questions.
PS: I will accept puppies (several months old to 2 years old) but will charge extra. I'll be happy to discuss this with you.

Isabelle was amazing. We had a last minute situation on Christmas Eve where we had to travel for the overnight but couldn't bring the pup... it was either return after Midnight Mass or get a hotel and find a vacay for Sophie. Isabelle was great. She'd never met us or Sophie before but took pity on us and worked with me to help with the schedule because she ALSO had some pretty tightly organized Christmas plans with her own family... she really saved the day for our holiday (and Sophie loved her).
Isabelle was very communicative and flexible from the start. When I met her, she immediately put me at ease. Mr. Darcy loved her as soon as he set foot in the house and barely noticed when I left, which is huge for my clingy dog. Isabella sent pictures and kept me updated throughout Darcy's stay. When I picked Darcy up, he was happy and tired, which is the sign of a good stay.
Chief had a great stay, will definitely bring him back in the future.
Our dog had a great stay at Isabelle's house! He loved the fenced in yard and having a dog friend to play with. Isabelle was great at communicating her needs and the process was easy.
I couldn't speak much about the drop off and pick up process since my family dropped off my pup for me. However, I would imagine drop off and pick up was quick and easy since I didn't hear any complains. :-)

As to the stay, I'd say Isabelle was great! She sent me photos of Ollie and sent me updates just about everyday he was with her. In the photos, Ollie always seemed happy, excited, or just relaxing passed out on her soft blankets she has laying around. I would definitely send Ollie her way next time we travel if Isabelle is available. Thank you Isabelle for taking great care of Ollie!
Isabelle was so wonderful! The dogs loved their vacation with her! Usually when I leave them at a kennel, they take a few days to reacclimate to being in with a bunch of barking dogs and craziness. I'm happy to say that they were back to their normal selves the minute they got home! I'm sure that this is because Isabelle spoiled them! She took them on trips to the dog park too!

I will definitely use Isabelle again the next time we need a dog sitter! Loved the photos that she sent too!

Thanks Isabelle!
Isabelle was a wonderful sitter for our dog. He is an active puppy and he got plenty of exercise during his stay! Also, she did a great job of sending me pictures and updates while we were away. I will definitely use Isabelle again in the future!
Isabelle took great care of our golden retriever for 8 days. She let us drop her off at 11 o'clock at night so that we could catch our early flight. Isabelle also has a dog that our dog could play with, which we really liked. She took them to the dog park every day and sent us pictures often. We would definitely recommend her to anyone!
We absolutely love Isabelle!!! She was able to watch our dog for over a week while we were away to get married. She also opened up her calendar during the school year to help us out. Isabelle took Curtis on a walk everyday and also took him to the dog park. She is so great with him!!!
Wonderful host! Daisy was well taken care of in all respects!
Isabelle was great! She sent us picts and let us know how our dog was doing. My dog wasn't overly excited to see me when I came to pick her up. I think she was much happier there than at the kennel. We will DEFINITELY be back!! Thanks so much!
Isabelle was a great host for my buddy Java while my family and I were on a long weekend vacation. She sent me pictures of Java atleast twice a day. Knowing that my buddy was doing great at the sitter's was very comforting when you are away from home. Thanks much Isabelle for taking care of my best friend...
Isabelle was great! We had great communication and she supplied me with status updates. My baby was not even acting crazy when I got her, so I know she was treated better than normal bording. We will DEFINITELY be back!! Thanks so much!
Isabelle was fantastic! I received pictures and updates every day. She took my dog to the dog park a few times and on long walks making sure she got plenty of exercise. My dog also got along great with Isabelle's dog, Kira, and had a ton of fun playing. I thought she wouldn't want to come home because it seemed like she was having such a great time! Skye truly had a vacation while I was on vacation!
Isabelle did an amazing job with Abe. He had a great time and is throughly exhausted. We couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Isabelle was a great host for our dog Mocha. Scheduling drop-off and pick-up was easy, she kept Mocha active with walks and trips to the dog park, and her home was a perfect place for Mocha to play and relax.
Isabelle was great! My dog, Scarlet, came home very happy and tired- she slept for the next 24 hours straight! Isabelle accommodated my schedule even when I was late picking up my dog. I would definitely recommend her!
This is the second time my dog Winston has stayed with Isabelle and I couldn't be happier. She took him in at last minute and great care of him. She took him to the dog park twice in two days and sent me daily pictures. I definitely recommend her!
Our dog Lucy's stay with Isabelle was great. Isabelle kept us updated frequently with pictures and how Lucy was doing. Isabelle's dog Kira is great and can get along with any dog. Lucy came home relaxed and happy as opposed to past stays in a more traditional kennel. We will definitely book with Isabelle again in the future.
My dog, Winston, had a wonderful time at Isabelle's and came home a happy and exhausted pup! He loved playing with her dog, Kira and going to the dog park during his stay there. He also loved cuddling with Isabelle and it was a relief to know he was genuinely loved and looked after while I was gone. She sent me pictures and updates during my time away and I felt confident leaving my dog with her and her family. I definitely recommend her services!
Our corgi Carly stayed with Isabelle for a week while we were out of town and had a great time! Carly and Kira got along instantly and had a lot of fun together. They went to the dog park, took walks, and had a nice time playing outside. Isabelle was super easy to work with and great about providing updates. We are so grateful to her for providing our dog with excellent care and will definitely look her up next time we travel!
Great! Would definitely use again.
Once again Isabelle was pawsome! I recommend her for those wanting someone to take their pet in and welcome them to their family.
Isabelle has been great, our go-to in Columbus. She has been great with communication, and very understanding with scheduling. Our girl is best buddies with Kira, always excited to be dropped off or when we meet in the dog park. Isabelle has been great with exercise and taking her to the park, and she always looks happy in the pictures!
This was my first time leaving my puppy with ANYONE so I was extremely nervous about the stay. I researched quite a few hosts and performed meet ups. Isabelle is extremely easy to work with and put me quite at ease as she explained the process. When I dropped Hunter off at her home - my worries went out the window! Hunter and her boxer, Kira, got along extremely well and they played all day, visited a dog park, and Hunter played tug with Isabelles children. The house is clean and the backyard has a nice secure fence! When I picked Hunter up - he was worn out and happy! I would not hesitate leaving Hunter with Isabelle again.
Oliver loves to stay with Isabelle! We love getting pictures of him out at the dog park.
Our dog, Maggie, stayed with Isabelle over the 4th of July weekend. Isabelle was great! I felt very comfortable leaving Maggie in her care as soon as I met her. She kept us updated with texts and pictures. When we picked Maggie up she was exhausted from all the playing! She obviously had a great time. I will definitely use Isabelle again.
Once again, Tucker had a wonderful vacation with Isabelle! He came home a happy boy. He was "tuckered" out! Isabelle does a great job! She sends me pictures and updates on him throughout the week which is really great. He'll be back next time!
Isabelle took wonderful care of our puppy! It was our first time using Dog Vacay and it could not have gone better. We are so grateful to Isabelle and the company for providing this service. We will never kennel our girl again!
Isabelle was a great sitter. My dog seemed to live it and Isabelle really cared for my dog as her own. I highly recommend Isabelle for anyone and I will definitely use her again and again.
Oliver has had such a great experience staying with Isabelle. We love getting pictures of him from the dog park. It is a great comfort knowing he is being cared so well for while we are away.
Isabelle was great and Sam had a great time staying with her over the holidays and playing with Kira! Would definitely recommend as a host!
We were very worried because our dog is pretty sensitive. Isabelle has made the process easy and put us at ease that our Dog will be treated well while we are away! She has gone over and above and we are so grateful!
Oliver had a great time!! Loved getting a note and picture each day.
Awesome as always! Lucy loves her home away from home!
Our 20 month old lab stayed with Isabelle and I could tell she had a great time! Isabelle was very flexible with our schedules and she made sure to meet us at a dog park so that her dog and our dog could meet first! She also sent pictures to let us know what a good time Lyra was having. It was wonderful knowing she was taking such great care of our dog!
Isabelle is very sweet, and took great care of my two dogs. They got exercise at the dog park, and she sent photos and updates during their stay. She was very responsive whenever I had a question. I wouldn't hesitate to have her watch my dogs again. Thanks Isabelle!
Isabelle is awesome! Tucker had a great time playing at her house once again!
This was the second time that Lucy stayed with Isabelle and I am so grateful to have found her! She takes such great care of our girl and gives her the attention that she would get at home. We definitely recommend Isabelle to anyone looking for a home away from home for their dog!
Isabelle went above and beyond our expectations. She took our dog to the dog park and took him on a long walk along the river. She has a great fenced in backyard for the dogs to play. Our dog had a great time playing with her dog, and they got along wonderfully! Our dog was exhausted when he got home b/c he had so much fun. We will definitely be using Isabelle in the much better than having to board our dog!
Isabelle and her family took great care of my Lucy! They treated her like one of the family and she came home a tired pup! I would definitely recommend Isabelle !!
This was my first experience with DogVacay and I must say Tucker's stay with Isabelle was wonderful! I could tell at the "Meet and Greet" that he would fit right in with her pups. She was kind enough to send daily updates and pictures which made me feel better about leaving him in the first place! If/when we need a sitter in the future I will definitely contact Isabelle again!
Sending our dogs to Isabelle's was like sending them to the home of a family member. Her home was perfect for our very active dogs - a great back yard, two wonderful new friends Kira and Buckeye to play with, her sons to play fetch with our retriever and daily trips to the dog park. When a health issue arose with one of our dogs during our trip Isabelle called us immediately and took Winston to the vet right away. When he was able to come home Isabelle and her sons went above and beyond in caring for him, including carrying him up stairs because he was on a jumping restriction. She took care of him the way we would have and it set us at ease allowing us to enjoy the rest of our vacation. Isabelle will be our go-to dog sitter for Rupert and Winston in the future and I know the doggies can't wait to go back and visit their new friends!
Isabelle and her family were great! Quincy (golden retriever) apparently made himself right at home and was extremely happy there. I would highly recommend her and will use her again if the need arises.
She did a great job, and was very easy to work with, and took great care of my dog!
