About Dana

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
*I offer wonderful daycare and overnight services with full supervision and access to an extra large yard for running around and sunbathing!*

My home is built on a double lot that is completely gated with a large lawn and lots of running room for my dogs and their furry friends. I have two little dogs of my own and have been a doggy lover all my life. When your dog comes to my home, he/she will be treated like one of my own. I guarantee your dog will want to come back again and again.

My dogs get nervous around bigger dogs, so I am now only taking smaller dogs (under 25 lbs). Sorry if I am not able to accommodate your dog. I can always help you find another DogVacay host.

Our dog Emmy had a great time staying with Dana and her two dogs. There was another dog staying over as well and it was so nice to receive photos of them playing together. Dana has a great backyard for the dogs to run around in. When we arrived to pick Emmy up, she was laying on the couch with Dana and seemed quite at home! Even though we booked at the eleventh hour, we really appreciated Dana making time for us to do a meet and greet the evening before we left Emmy with her for the weekend. Emmy will be back when she needs a vacay from us!

Dana seemed committed to Frodo's well-being and the amenities were perfect -a safe and quiet neighborhood, a big yard for running, and friendly dachshunds for playtime.
Dana was so great with our challenging dog Bella. With her large yard and home, and warm personality, we were entirely comfortable leaving Bella during our 8 day vacation. Dana was extremely easy to schedule with and kept us updated throughout our trip. Very pleased with the experience!

I really get the sense that Dana loves my dog as much as I do. She didn't want to see him go after his week-long stay with her! I LOVED the videos she sent while I was out of town of my dog playing with another dog she was sitting. He looked so happy!! She has a great big backyard for the dogs to run around in. Would highly recommend.

Dana is the best. I always know that my little dog is in the best hands while I am traveling for work and for fun. Wook-e is always thrilled to arrive at Dana's place.
Our dog came home happy and healthy, which is the litmus test for how things went when he was on "vacation"! The setup is great with a big fenced in yard. I'd definitely board with Dana again.
This was my dog Boo's third time staying with Dana and her family. Boo gets SO excited when she walks in the door to play with Dana's two little dogs and barely notices when I walk out the door. Boo always comes home exhausted and happy. Dana is my go-to for long work trips, since I know I won't have to worry about my pup at all with her. Highly recommended!

Dana was amazing!! She sent us pics and updates on a regular basis and was kind enough to accommodate our list minute travel changes. Our little pup had the best time playing with Dana's pup's. He came home exhausted and happy :) Thanks so much Dana!!

Our third great stay with Dana for Coco and Stevie!
Hello everyone, Mala and M.C.A here! We stole our Mom's computer because we wanted to tell everyone how much fun we had with Dana and her doggies when she watched us. We got to play with LuLu and Reese in the big yard whenever we wanted and we didn't even have to wear leashes because there is a big fence. Dana was really nice to us and she understands that we bark a lot because she has doggies like us, so she doesn't get mad. Mommy says we get to go back next week and play for a couple more days. We are so excited!!

Dana was wonderful with Sammy! He seemed to have a great time and she was accommodating, good with his separation anxiety, and kept us updated with photos. Thanks Dana!
My puppy Boo had SO much fun with Dana and her two dogs. I was really nervous about Boo's eating, but she ate and slept fine, which clearly meant she felt comfortable with Dana and her family. Dana let me know she slept super soundly at night after a full day of playing! I'll definitely be looking to Dana the next time I go out of town.

I was pretty nervous about leaving one of our dachshunds due to his fear issues. I have to say that our experience with Dana was EXCELLENT! The dog that worried me had the best time while at Dana's, and the puppy (who I didn't worry about at all) also did great. Dana kept me updated each day, with pictures - which really quelled my nerves.

I would not hesitate to use Dana again...........5 stars plus!

Great stay! Plenty of space and playmates. I always check to see if Dana is available first before choosing alternate sitters. Five stars!
We had a great experience using Dana to watch our puppy for a few days. From the photo/video updates we received, it looks like our puppy had a great time there. We would definitely use Dana again.
Dana was great with both my dogs as was her entire family! I got updated with txts and pictures throughout the stay and it made me feel very comfortable leaving my pets with her. Her dogs are also very friendly and made fantastic playmates for Twinkie and Noodles. Overall, five stars!

Coco's stay with Dana couldn't have been better...Dana is a wonderful host and Coco was treated like one of the family from the moment she entered the house!
Dana was great! She took great care of my Newfoundland, Wembley, and even sent me a pic of her after a long walk. Dana has a really big yard for for all her dogs and for mine to run around and play in. I know Wembley had a great time cause she's been passed out since we picked her up this morning. We will definitely book with Dana again the next time we need someone to watch Wembley.

Champ enjoyed staying at Dana's house with her big yard and pet dachshunds, and we could tell he'd been well-loved when we picked him up.
Chip had a great time with Dana and her dogs! A yard in the city is hard to come by and I am sure that Chip had a great time playing in the open space. Dana was attentive and made sure Chip was well fed and taken care of. She was also really understanding of our pup who is still being potty trained.

All signs are telling me Lacie had an amazing stay. She has been sound asleep since we got home!

Dana has a great place, lots of room for doggy play time and lots of outdoor space. She was really flexible with drop-off and pick up and you can tell she loves being surrounded by pups!

Lacie will definitely stay with Dana again --- thanks Dana for taking such good care of my fur-baby!!

I have such peace of mind leaving Charlie with Dana. He's a rescue dog who has had issues with separation anxiety but he loves staying with Dana and her family and they treat him as if he were there own which is awesome!
My dogs stayed with Dana for two weeks while I was away on business. I have never left my dogs for that long, so I was a bit nervous about leaving them with someone new. Dana made me me feel so comfortable when I first met her for our initial meet and greet. Her home is lovely and the perfect home away from home for my dogs. My boys were well taken care of while I was away. I would highly recommend Dana's pet sitting services to the most discerning pet owner.
