About Coleen & Beth

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
It can be stressful for pets when their human families are away. We have the experience (6 years with DogVacay) and dedication to ensure that both you and your pets feel comfortable and secure while you travel. We strive to keep your pets well-exercised and on a consistent schedule to make sure that the transition to our care is as seamless as possible. We send daily picture texts to update you on your pet's well-being.

Whether it's anxiety, a medical condition or just a senior pet, we have extensive experience administering medication and we are happy to care for special needs pets.

Boarding & Dog Daycare
We are located in the Central City/Liberty Wells neighborhood in Salt Lake City. We have 1 dog (Ginger), 1 cat (Bluey) and 2 kids. Beth works from home, and she takes the dogs on a walk at her lunch hour. The back door is open if the weather is good and we also have a dog door. Unless your pup is destructive, they will have free-range to roam the house. Our dog, Ginger, is very friendly and playful, so your pup will have great company. We are home in the evenings and your pup is welcome to cuddle with us on the couch or play in the fully-fenced back yard.

Sitting (within a 5mi radius of 84111)
Keeping pets in their own environment and on their usual schedule reduces stress and creates a sense of security. This makes your travel less stressful for your pet and more enjoyable for you! As an added bonus, your house looks lived-in while you are away.

We're looking forward to meeting you and your pet. Please let us know, and we are happy to provide excellent references.

Thank you Coleen and Beth for watching Noodle and Mellow over the holiday! Our dogs had a great time and we received lots of photos and updates over the week long vacation!
Amazing Service!!!! Beth helped me with my little pooch. She went above and beyond taking care of my little girl. The price was amazing as well. Completely worth the money. I even got frequent pictures of my baby! Thank you guys so much! Will definitely use again!
Coleen & Beth did a great job taking care of our three herding dogs! They sent lots of pics and helped to coordinate around our schedule. Highly recommended
Our 8month old pup had a great time here and cried when leaving he was so sad to go! Coleen and Beth are amazing hosts kept us updated and even sent pictures while we are out of town. I certainly felt our dog was being cared for properly while we were gone and would book with them again! It can be a lot of work to take on a puppy and I'm grateful for how attentive they were to all his needs and safety!
Our dog loved his stay! He came home happy and very wore out :) I loved getting all the picture updates! Plan to use Coleen and Beth again!!
This was my first time using Dogvacay and had a wonderful experience with Colleen and Beth. They kept me up to date with Lucky and even sent pix so I know he was doing good. I highly recommend them and would choose them again myself.

Thanks so much for treating Lucky as your own!
We definitely felt comfortable with our kids staying the weekend with Coleen and Beth. They were incredibly kind and sent regular updates. We could tell that our dogs were loved and cared after while on vacation!
Bella had a great stay at doggy day care!
Coleen and Beth were great! Very flexible and easy to arrange meet and greet along with pickup and drop off times. Molly I could tell felt relaxed and well taken care of. If she had felt any stress she would stay close to me for a few days after, she walked off to the bedroom to sleep on her own because she was tired that evening! I also received updates and pictures! Wonderful home for pups!
Coleen & Beth have done a wonderful job on several occasions we needed to travel away from our furry girls. We really appreciate them being responsible, accommodating and caring. We recommend them wholeheartedly.
Excellent experience.
Beth and Coleen sent pictures of our pup and updated us about how she was doing. Luca came home tired and happy from a fun day with her new friends. Very grateful for such great members on DogVacay.
Beth and Coleen were extremely friendly and easy to work with. Luca had a fantastic time.
It was wonderful being able to attend a conference and know my little furbaby was in good hands and in a private home. thank you...I also appreciated the pictures and updates!
Coleen and Beth are super responsive and responsible. I can't recommend them more highly.
Our dog had a great time! Beth sent great pictures so we knew that all was well while we were gone. Thanks!!
We were a bit nervous as it was our first time asking someone to sit Cala and Pepa. We had a great experience with Colleen and Beth. All along the process they were flexible, responsive, easy to do business with and great communicating with us. Dogs were in great shape and calm when we reach home. We will ask them again when the time comes.
Beth and Coleen took great care of our aging, medically challenged dog. We came home to a happy stress free pet, which is high praise!
Beth and Coleen are the best! They messaged us with pictures several times a day. The communication was excellent. Our baby got sick while we were gone and they took care of him just like we would have. They saved his life.
They are so easy to work with. You will soon think of them as part of your family. We dibs on adopting them! Cannot thank them enough for all they did for us.
The Doodle-dogs (Rupert and Dudley) are very excited to have moved to Utah and that we discovered Coleen and Beth on this site. The initial meeting was lovely and immediately put us all at ease at the thought of having a dog-sitter. We got some photos and it is alarming to consider that they may have had more fun with Coleen and Beth than they do everyday with us. Looking forward to using them again and highly recommend their services.
Beth and Coleen stayed with our dog and cat during a lengthy absence. Our pets and house were well cared for. We were very pleased with their service!
"Pawsome" experience! Zoey has a new extended family!! We both just love Coleen, Beth, kids and Ginger! Zoey misses them already and is looking forward to her next Vacay with the Jennings clan end of February/beginning of March!
Coleen and Beth took great care of our dog and our plants while we were out of town for 10 days. We highly recommend them to anyone in need of a pet sitter!
Being in a new city means re-establishing all your networks, including finding people you trust to take care of your kids AND pets! This time we were really in a panic to find someone to care for our little Stevie. This was my first time trying out DogVacay and I had lots of questions and wondered if it would really work.

Colleen and Beth were fantastic to work with. They replied to my inquiry and questions so quickly and helped us set up the most ideal situation for out little guy. Colleen stayed at our apartment and took great care of Stevie while we're were gone for 4 days. She was really generous with her time and truly adapted to Stevie's needs.

I would use Colleen and Beth again in a heartbeat and recommend them without reservation to others.

Daisy is not the easiest dog in the world - prone to separation anxiety and a definite alpha female, she needs knowledgeable care. Coleen and Beth did a lovely job managing her. Apparently she bonded well with their dog and children. She returned with a few additional nicks and scrapes, which is par for the course and testament to this home as being fantastic even for difficult breeds such as the Cattle dog. Daisy had her first seizure ever during this visit and the way Coleen, Beth and DogVacay handled the issue is beyond reproach. I highly recommend both pet sitters and services as one of the best I have ever used.
Coleen & Beth were great - I didn't worry at all while I was away. One of my dogs needed medication & that wasn't a problem for them either. I would definitely recommend! :-)
They were extremely responsive to my pet's needs. My pet got an eye infection the day before my trip and they had no problems administering eye drops. They made sure she was active, they understood her quirks and I came home to a happy pet.
Coleen and Beth were great to work with.
This was our first experience with Dogvacay and we were very pleased. I chose Coleen and Beth because their profile said they'd stay IN our house with our rescued Mini Dachshund. We came up with a good plan to minimize our dog's anxiety when we were gone, and the girls also provided added security for our house. Our dog, Memphis, took to them well, and they just loved him. They provided us daily photos of our him, so we could see how he was doing. The house was all in order when we returned. We'd definitely use them again.
We absolutely LOVE these ladies!!! We have now used them 3 times (twice for just an overnight and once for a week).

Everything always goes smoothly with them!

They are extremely reliable and trustworthy and most importantly, downright awesome with our dogs (both of which are large and high-maintenance).
Warm folks. Took great care of our Kora.
We had just moved to Las Vegas when we had to board our 11 month Saint Bernard Roman. Using Dog Vacay we met Beth and Coleen and instantly connected with them and felt they would be the right people to take care of Roman. We also liked that they house sat which kept Roman in a familiar location. They sent us a couple of texts with photos each day and it was clear he was happy. When we came home the house was very clean. We hope to use Beth and Coleen again very soon.
These ladies are wonderful! Super helpful and up for the challenge of crazy dog parents with crazy dogs!!! We were so happy with our first booking with them and can't wait to use them in the future! We have two very pleased pups here!!! Thank you!
We left for ten days and Coleen and Beth cared for our dogs for the first time. We were nervous but it turned out great. Dogs seem happy and relaxed so that is best..
Our home was straightened and in the same shape as when we left, basically.
We will request their services again!
Thank you both your are awesome!

It is always great to leave Riley with Coleen & Beth and will really miss them when they make their move. They do a wonderful job and wish they were still here.
Second time leaving my dogs with Beth and Coleen. Another great experience. Highly recommend!
As usual, my Maggie had a great time at Beth and Collen's. They treat her like family and that means the world to me!
So relaxed and easy to work with. Messi was in very good hands and we felt at ease. Thanks!
Our dog loved his stay with Coleen and Beth. They treated our special fellow like he was one of the family and keeping us posted with regular updates. We could not have asked for a better home away from home.
Fantastic! I did a Meet and Greet before booking. Beth and Coleen were so personable and understanding of my dog Jazz health issues and help me feel at ease that he would be fine in their care. Within the hour of dropping my dogs off, Beth sent me several texts and pics of how Jazz was doing. I felt so reassured. Coleen and Beth treated my dogs as if they were part of their family. I am very confident in leaving my dogs with them. I have already reserved my next booking.
Coleen and Beth were great. When my flight was canceled due to a mechanical problem and I wasn't going to be able to get back in time they were perfectly happy to watch Wash an extra night taking a big load off my mind.
Our dogs were well cared for by Beth and Coleen while we went on vacation. They sent several pics and we were happy to see that the dogs got outside to local parks as well as their backyard. The dogs came home content and tired so we knew that they had gotten exercise which is so important for them. The dogs also received lots of family interaction and they love such attention. We hope to use their doggie services in the future. Thanks for caring for the girls and making their stay comfortable. Vicki and Deb
This was Daisy's 2nd stay with Coleen, Beth and family. She was there for 5 days and seemed happy and tired when we got home! Coleen and Beth sent pictures of Daisy relaxing, out in the yard with the other dogs, and getting snuggled by the kids! I was surprised and happy to hear that Beth had taken Daisy to a dog park and she did really well!

It is so nice to know that she is with a family and not sitting in a kennel while we are out of town.

Thanks again to Coleen and Beth for taking such good care of Daisy!
Coleen and Beth took great care of our dog and kept us updated throughout the week. We would not hesitate to book through them again!
Beth and Colleen took real good care of Riley while we were gone for two weeks. We really appreciated the photos that they sent to keep us updated.
Hi Coleen and Beth; Sparky has stayed here several times and has fun with Maggie their dog. We feel comfortable leaving Sparky and will continue to do so. Sparky is almost 15 years old so we want him to get great care which he does. We would rate our experience a "5".Sparky says WOOF! Thank you.
Thanks to Coleen and Beth I was able to enjoy a week in sunny Florida without worring about my dog. They are the best!
I was amazed at how great Coleen and Beth were!!! This was our first experience using Dogvacy and were a little nervous how it would go. I am now a believer that this is the best ever. Our dogs came home tired and relaxed which was great. They treated our girls truly like family. The pictures they sent were well appreciated. We will definitely use them again and have told many family and friends how this experience was truly awesome. Tootsie and Cocoa say thanks!!!
My male Siberian Husky, Kato, stayed with Coleen and Beth for 6 days while I visited Denver. They sent me at least one photo with an update every day of his stay! He looked like he had a great time, and when I brought him back home, he was exhausted like a dog who had played non-stop for the past week! I would recommend them to anyone!
Another very positive experience with Beth and Coleen taking care of my Maggie. I am so fortunate to have found them! Thanks so much.
We are so glad we found Coleen and Beth to take care of our dog while we were out of town for a weekend! They were so kind and helpful, and shared photos and nice details about his stay. We would definitely use them again.
Came through for us at the last minute!! Our dog had a great time, will not hesitate to use again!!
Our dog Chi had an AWESOME time on her dogvacay! Coleen and Beth were so accommodating and made Chi feel welcomed in their home!! Having people that understand the personality of a Boxer made leaving Chi so much easier. I would definitely use their service again!
Our little Mari had another great stay with Coleen and Beth. (And their adorable daughter.) At the risk of decreasing future available for us, I recommend them very highly. :-)
My dog is very anxious and I was worried about leaving her. But Beth and Colleen were just perfect with her. I felt so good about the care she received I would recommend them to everyone.
It's always hard finding someone new to take care of your dog(s) while you are on vacation. New to DogVacay, we read Beth and Coleen's profile and it seemed like a great fit. It was! Bella adapts easily to new/different situations, but Seger can really work himself into an anxious frenzy. I never felt worried while our dogs were with Beth and Coleen. Their communication style was relaxed and easy. It felt like an extra, special touch to get a text, photo, etc about the dogs and how they were doing. It was comforting to know that the dogs were being well cared for, made to feel like they were at home. It was FANTASTIC that the dogs were dang pooped out too! Thank you Beth, Coleen, Hazel and Thea for opening your home to these very important members of our family!
We had Daisy about 1 month and were scheduled to go on our annual 1 week vacation. I didn't feel comfortable boarding Daisy or having the neighbors just watch her while we were out. She is a rescue and just seemed so sensitive and needy for attention!
I stumbled upon the DogVacay site and was so excited! Coleen and Beth were open that week. I scheduled a meet and greet and all went well! I dropped Daisy off and of course, was still nervous to be gone that long. Coleen and Beth sent pictures and texts throughout the week which helped me relax and enjoy our vacation. The picture with their little girl giving Daisy belly rubs was my favorite!
Daisy seems content and happy! If Coleen and Beth are available, Daisy will be returning the next time we need to be out of town and can't take her!
Coleen and Beth were great to keep our dog last minute for a night. They are excellent to work with!
We were so at ease during our vacation to know that mercy was with Coleen and Beth. Mercy loved the resident dog, Maggie, and was thrilled to spend a week with her. Beth took Mercy on runs with her bike to release some energy. Mercy came home happy and exhausted!
This is our second time back to Coleen and Beth with Maika. Maika didn't even look back to say goodbye this time! She just jumped right in with the other dogs, a welcome member of the family. Coleen and Beth are just wonderful with the dogs, giving a safe and fun environment. Erin
Coleen and Beth (and daughter Hazel) made our insecure little Mari feel right at home. They were so kind and loving with her. I will definitely have Mari stay there again!
Yet another great experience with leaving our babies with this wonderful family! Our dogs had a great time while we were away and we enjoyed a few pictures to prove it!
Jake came home a happy boy!
Yet another wonderful experience with leaving my 5 year old Havanese, and 6 month old Yorkie-Poo, with Bethany. I received daily pictures that made me smile. It's so much easier leaving my babies when I know they are well taken care of and getting lots of attention and play time!
It was nice to know my dog was in such good hands!
Bethany and her family watched 2 of our dogs for 4 days and we couldn't be happier with the care they provided. We left our 3.5 month old yorkie-poo for the first time and she was in great hands and received so much love, especially from her 3 year old! We received consistent e-mail updates with pictures, which let us rest our minds at ease on vacation. We definitely recommend Bethany and her family!
Bethany and her family are the best! I could not have asked for better care for my dogs. They are my big babies and have always been traumatized when I take them to the kennel. (My husky wouldn't eat for days afterwards.)

With Bethany's care they were comfortable and happy. They did everything they could to make sure my dogs had a good stay.

I have actually avoided out of town trips because of my dogs. Now I have a new found freedom.

Thank you Bethany!
Max will definitely return for a future vacation.
Bethany and her family were great!
We have found our new sitter's for sure. Before we moved to Minnesota we had the same sitter for 7 years and were so attached to her. We are so happy to have found a second home for our boy Jake when we need to leave him. If you want a cozy home with the family environment for your dog-this is the sitter for you!

Bethany and her family took wonderful care of our little dog, Chester. We plan on using her services again!
I was initially going to drop Maika off at a dog kennel but was so depressed after checking it out, that I was tempted to cancel my holiday (or at least to resign myself to feeling stressed and worried the whole time). My dog is just over a year old and spent most of her life in an animal rescue center. She needs A LOT of attention - which is exactly she got from Bethany and her family. They have a small, cozy house, filled with love and bustling with activity. A dog. A cat. A neighborhood friend stopping by. There's a nice park around the corner. In short, I couldn't be happier. We got a few pictures, speedy and upbeat responses to our two mobile phone text messages. When I went to pick her up a week later, Maika seemed TOTALLY at home. In fact, I'm not sure she wanted to leave (I kid you not, she was gazing out the back window for about five minutes after we drove off). My son, sitting in the backseat with her, even chimed in: "Wow, Mom!! She smells so good! I think they gave her a bath!"
Bethany and her family took great care of our dog- I would highly recommend her!
We had a great experience leaving our dog with such a fun and friendly family! Resident dog, child who lavished attention on our dog... it was so relaxing to know that she was in good hands. We definitely look forward to working with you again!
