About Priscilla

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Ten minutes from Providence I provide a quiet, stress free environment for all sizes and breeds of dogs with a large fenced yard. Dogs have free run of the house, are allowed on the furniture and can even sleep on my bed if there is room! I have handled dogs, cats and horses all my life and feel comfortable with any type of dog. I am at home most of every day. I cannot accept big jumpers, due to a picket fence in front yard, or dogs that are aggressive with other dogs. My return visitors are always happy to come here, which makes me very proud. Sadly I recently lost my beautiful, sixteen year old Italian Greyhound to cancer. Just last month a repeat dog became available for adoption when her owner was confined to a wheel chair. So I now have a friendly female Miniature Schnauzer.

Our little dog Nina -- a 12-pound chihuahua mix -- loves life at Priscilla's! Nina tends to be shy with most people, but she has always -- from her very first visit well over a year ago -- been completely happy and at home at Priscilla's.

We never worry about Nina when she's with Priscilla because we have seen how effortlessly Priscilla responds to each of the dogs in her care. She knows dogs and her calm competence means we can leave Nina with Priscilla with absolute faith that our dog will be safe, happy, and well-cared for. Not having to worry while we're away: that's priceless!

Here's how much Nina loves Priscilla: when we return to pick up our little dog, that rascal usually tries to hide -- she loves us, but she can't bear the thought of leaving Priscilla and her happy home! And Nina, once she's in the car, watches Priscilla as we back out of the driveway...and we know Nina's thinking...couldn't I stay here just a while longer?

We are completely happy with the care Nina receives and heartily recommend Priscilla.

I have known Priscilla Dunn for over thirty years and in that time I have always been deeply impressed by her regard for animals both large and small. She has always shown the highest sensitivity to the care and understanding of the animals she has been caregiver to and has demonstrated that she has profoundly good insight into the animals well being as well as well as their basic needs.
I can truthfully say I think anyone would feel very comfortable with their "pet" in her care.

Priscilla has had many years of experience working with dogs and horses. What I find special about her as a Doggy Vacay sitter is her knowledge of dog behaviors combined with an unflappable disposition that enables her to relate to each dog as an individual. She accepts variations in behavior and disposition (natural when a group of dogs are first together) so that dog guests relax and problems are avoided. Best of all, she genuinely likes her visitors and I think the dogs know it.

Our dog, Jazz, spent her first night away from us at Priscilla's. I was concerned as she can be high strung, but she just relaxed and hung out with the rest.

My dog stayed with Priscilla this weekend and I can tell that she had an awesome weekend. Priscilla is very gentle and kind to her borders. I would not hesitate to send her back whenever we will be out of town.

Thank you Priscilla Britt, Deb and family

Priscilla is an excellent communicator and carer of Hazel, my wire fox terrier. Coordinating meeting times and pick up times is always an unknown and Priscilla was very accommodating and straight forward to work with.

Priscilla was very flexible and our dog enjoyed his stay
Priscilla is a great person! She's very patient and clearly a dog lover. Mickey was well taken care of.
I'm a little jealous.....he really misses you! Thanks so much.
Because Jazz is a one person dog and I'm that person, we were not sure how this would go. It went better than either of us expected (Priscilla and me) Jazz wasn't asked for her opinion. She did take treats from Priscilla and let her put her leash on for outside time. This would not be worth mentioning for a "normal" dog, but for Jazz it was BIG. Priscilla has a low key, laid back manner which helps dogs relax and interact well with each other. If I'm able to take a longer stay away, I'll definitely contact Priscilla (and Tony, the home dog)

When we got our Amber back she looked to have adjusted fine with the other dogs that were there and seemed to had enjoyed the surroundings. I will have no problem asking Priscilla to watch my Amber again
Barkley was well taken care of and came home happy and healthy.
We had a last minute trip planned and Priscilla was able to not only fit us in but made it possible for us to do a meet and greet with her dog and the other dog she was watching that weekend to make sure it would be a good fit for all around. She is very friendly and makes your dogs feel at home.

I think our two dogs will be happy to visit Priscilla again in the future.

Only a short visit this time. Very welcoming and stress free. Georgia was calm and seemed to have enjoyed her stay. We will visit again.
Once again, Grizzly came back stress free and happy!! Thanks to Priscilla.
My dog was happy, healthy and cared for.
Pricilla welcomed Chloe into her home and provided a safe and comfortable place for her to stay.
Leaving my dog with Priscilla was a great experience. If I board at a kennel she usually gets a bit nervous. At Priscilla's she ran right in and started interacting with the other dogs. Didn't even look back to say goodbye! She was happy and stress free when I picked her up as well. I would definitely recommend and book with her again.

Priacilla and her dog were great host for weego. Definitely looking forward to booking again
Priscilla was great. Rory was well cared for.
You only had to see our puppy's eagerness to get up the steps and into the house to know how much she enjoyed her stay with Priscilla!
I've had my dog Meg stay with Priscilla a couple times and she is an excellent host. Highly recommended!
Luca had a great time with Priscilla and came home in good spirits. We were very happy with the reports as well. Too bad we moved out of town shortly after Luca's stay with Priscilla! We would definitely board with her again.
Living in the city, my dog does not get to run as often as he would like. Hennimore loved running around and exploring Priscilla's yard.
Everything went great! Will use this host again.
Nina is a very small dog who loves other dogs (and our cat) but is very wary of people. But it was love at first sight at Priscilla's -- Nina loves it there, she plays and cuddles and comes home happy
My husband picked Bella up after the trip and she seems happy. He mentioned he could tell the other dogs enjoyed Priscilla.

We are going to use her again next month.

Her yard is completely fenced and the dogs are allowed to go outside whenever they wish.

Priscilla and her Italian Greyhound Tony are very friendly and welcoming to our regular-sized Greyhound. Nice, secure yard and house. Priscilla clearly understands dogs and handles a rambunctious pack well. Our dog's dietary restrictions were well observed. Highly recommended.

Priscilla has watched our 9-month-old puppy several times now and we couldn't be happier with the service. When we drop our puppy off, she makes a beeline to the front door and immediately makes herself at home in Priscilla's house and spacious back yard, not even following us to the door to say goodbye (even though at this point she knows a trip to Priscilla's means we'll be leaving her there for a few days). When we return from our trip and pick her up again, she's always tired and content after days of playing with Priscilla's Italian Greyhound and any other dogs that might be staying there at the same time. We will definitely continue to leave our pup with Priscilla when we go out of town.

Our very little dog is shy with most people, but she loves Priscilla, who is always a warm and soothing caregiver. Priscilla "gets" dogs and, when we leave our dog with Priscilla, we know she will understand our little dog's cues -- whatever they are! -- and all will be well.

Our dog clearly enjoys the experiences she has at Priscilla's home and -- though we get a big welcome from our dog when we return -- it's clear from her backwards glance at Priscilla as we head to the car: she is sad to leave Priscilla...

To know your shy little doggy feels perfectly at ease with her caregiver -- well, that's such a relief!

Thanks for your help!
Wonderful experience for my dogs, one elder and one pup. Priscilla helped me feel comfortable since it was our first stay. She emailed and we spoke on the phone. Appreciate all she did and my dogs loved it. We will definitely return in the future. Thank you!

Once again, Priscilla has exceeded our expectations! Grizzly was comfortable at her house and was happy and content while we were away. I cant thank Priscilla enough for taking great care of our precious pup!
Priscilla Dunn was kind, calm and reassuring with us and our dog. She provided a dog friendly home and yard and was always available for questions. We trust her with our loved family member as she took very good care of our Emma and we will return again to use her kind services. Thank you Priscilla!

This is the first time I have done dog vacay everything went well and priscilla did a very nice job with my 1 yr old springer spaniel, he is not an easy pup! Thanks again!
This was our dog's second time beeing hosted by Mrs Priscilla. She is so flexible and kind and we always feel very confortable leaving our dog with her. Our english bulldog Annie loves to spend time there. Thank you for great experience.
Priscilla was a very gracious host. Bailey came home happy and healthy.
Priscilla offers a warm and safe environment for your little darling. She is calm and accommodating, which is very soothing -- good for your dog and good for your peace of mind. Our little dog is timid with new people as a rule, but she made an exception in Priscilla's case...and trusted Priscilla immediately. Who could ask for more? We are delighted!

I had a little hiccup regarding dropping off Max. I didn't state a set time and was under the impression Priscilla would be home all morning since she didn't state a time either. I panicked when I couldn't get in touch with her, but she got back to me fairly quickly and it all worked out in the end.

Max had a very nice time with Priscilla, her dog and one other doggie guest. Her home was a great place for him to relax and she has a nice, safe yard for dogs to explore.

I would leave Max with her again - but next time I will let her know when to expect me.

Our little Chihuahua mix can be timid, but she immediately felt right at home with Priscilla. Our dog had a busy and happy day.
This is the second time i boarded with Priscilla. Her home is very dog friendly and cozy and my older dog really enjoys it there. It's a great fit.
after 4 days with priscilla our 6 month old terrier mix hardly even missed us. the night we got back she was clearly well taken care of, relaxed, and best of all, tired!

priscilla was easy to communicate with and had our assurance that everything would be just fineā€“even though this was the first time we'd ever left our pup!

We recently left our 1 yr. old dog with Priscilla for 10 days. We were reluctant because we have had bad experiences with others in the past. My dog had been hospitalized twice after stays with Doggie Daycare facilities due to dehydration. This was the first time we came back from vacation without any issues. He was happy and healthy and had a great time running in her back yard. I would definitely book another stay with Priscilla in the future. She is trustworthy and delivers on her commitments. I can finally go away stress-free! Thank You Priscilla!

My two dogs had a great time with Priscilla and her resident dog, Tony! She was very accommodating with drop off and pickup times, and I felt very confident leaving my pups in her care. They seemed to have a great time playing, and came home exhausted. I would recommend Priscilla to anyone in the area!

Our puppy Caesar is just six months old so we were a little nervous about leaving him for so long (vacation had been planned since before we got him). Priscilla responded to our request for a meeting right away and we arranged a visit a week ahead of time. Seeing how much she loves dogs and how well she cares for her own dog made us feel at ease and we booked the stay.

Caesar had a great stay with Priscilla, including an extra day we had to add at the last minute due to a weather delay. We are very happy with the care he received and will definitely book another stay with her again!

Priscilla was a great host for my dog. I have an older dog who is pretty mellow and happy to doze all day, and was a relief to have her happy and comfy during her stay. This is my first home boarding experience, and it is A MILLION TIMES better than a kennel. My dog came home happy and not shell shocked the way kennels used to make her feel. Thank you Priscilla :)

Priscilla and her Tony seemed to have enjoyed having Pollux and Pollux greeted me (after the first away from me experience in our six plus years together) in a calm, happy manner. I must assume that he enjoyed his stay with his host. I would return to Priscilla for future boarding needs.

Priscilla was responsive with messages and very flexible with pick up and drop off times. I know that my maltepoo Mage has a great time with Priscilla and her Italian greyhound Tony because she always has a smile on her face when I pick her up.

This was my second time leaving Mage in Priscilla's care.

We had our first experience with DogVacay this past weekend and we were very pleased. Priscilla waiting for Truffles when we arrived and gave us updates on Truffles when we asked for them throughout the weekend. Our daughter was worried about her girl until she saw pictures Priscilla sent of Truffles wagging her tail.
We felt that Truffles was well taken care of and felt comfortable playing with Tony all weekend. We would not worry at all about leaving Truffles with Priscilla. She is a great host!

Priscilla was wonderful with my dog and I will use her again
Rudy stayed with Priscilla for 2 weeks. He was very happy and well taken care of. He loved being with the other dogs and being outside a lot. Priscilla's home has an enclosed yard with lots of interesting paths and plants. He loved it. Big THANKS to Priscilla. She took such good care of Rudy. I would definitely recommend her to other dog owners.

My dog Princess is an Australian Sheppard who lives with 3 children (one infant) and a cat. She is active yet sweet, however shows emotion like a child. Priscilla's service was perfect for her. I was sure of this on the meet and greet but confirmed once I picked up Princess, as she was very happy with Priscilla and her dog Tony. I left feeling confident that Princess has a wonderful place to stay where she has made friends! Thank you Priscilla and Tony!

Priscilla is a great caretaker of my english bulldog puppy. She has a great back yard that my dog loved to explore in and her own dog welcomed mine into his home without a problem.
I would highly recommend boarding your dog with Priscilla. Our 2-year old Havanese had an 8-day stay with her while we were out of the country. Not only did he make friends immediately with Priscilla's sweetheart of an Italian greyhound, he celebrated Xmas happily with her visiting family and even coexisted with her cat. We felt he was in responsible and safe hands, and that Priscilla is an experienced enough dog owner to know what to do if there were any problems (fortunately, there weren't.) She has a welcoming home for pets and was very tolerant of our dog's initial impulse to mark everything in sight- indoors. He also enjoyed her very large and dog-friendly fenced in back yard.
We will have no hesitation about boarding our dog with Priscilla again in the future.
