About Caroline

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I love and adore dogs of all kinds. My baby passed away 2 years ago after our precious 10 years together. I know how precious they are to each of you.

Be straight with me on your requirements, let's connected through the love for our furry friends.

Boarding schedule: (and can be arranged)
Drop off time: after 6pm the day first day booked.
Pick up time: 6pm the day of last day booked.
(Based on a 24 hours incremental.)

I will care for them at home and with your permission to take them to our Hackensack office with us. A few of the puppies walk with me to my office, which is a 2 hours exercise. But, it is really up to the owner's wishes and the puppies' ability. Alternative will be walk in the neighborhood both morning and afternoon, weather permitted.

At home, there are area rugs on our floor for the grasp of paws. We wash and sun dry them on a regular basis.

Your baby will be a part of our family when we take him or her in. Play and dig holes in the backyard is fine. Don't worry if he or she is not house broken yet. We will help during the process.

It is not coincidence that we meet one another, it will not be coincindence if we don't. All is good. May you have a fulfilled life with the participant of your puppies.

1.Require minimum of 2 nights stay for any new comer.
2. Due to the limits of me and my facility, I will not take care of large size dog, unless I've known them since their puppy-hood. It's not about the breeds but about the sizes.

Other thoughts:

Do not give any of the followings to your puppies.
1. Chocolate, raisin, grapes, onions, garlic, macadamia (Hawaii nuts).
2.Artificial sweetness. (such as in the no sugar chewing gum, very toxic to dogs.)
3.Chicken bones or any table food.

Remember to walk them and play with them. Walking creates bonding and trust between you and your best friends. It's important to keep your regular routines whenever is possible. Don't create any regrets, always keep them on leash whenever you walk them. Although they trust and love you, a squirrel just might interrupt all the harmony.

Enjoy the precious time with your pups! Life is really short.

Caroline was wonderful! We had a nice meet and greet last week, and my dog stayed with her for one night for the first time this past weekend. He seemed to have so much fun! We got lots of pictures as well, which is always nice. Thank you Caroline! We would definitely come back!
Another great stay with Caroline & Gordon. Can't say enough good things about these hosts. Just fantastic.
Caroline was awesome she treated Yoda like her own I felt at ease specially something awful happen to me and Yoda prior to our vacation .She made me feel like a family and a best friend..I thought I was going to cancel my vacation but knowing Caroline took care of my baby,I was able to monitor and see Yodas progress everyday,and I could see that he was having fun and well cared for. Thanks so much. Caroline.
Love you for it.
Caroline is a great sitter, I got a lots of snap shots during the day Gizmo was at her care. I will go back to Caroline next time I need a sitter. Thank you Caroline.
We've never left our dog with anyone other than friends and family before we went on our latest trip, so I was a little worried about leaving her with someone I didn't know well, especially since my dog has a bit of a barking problem. It didn't phase Caroline one bit and she was phenomenal with Daisy, who was spoiled completely! I got frequent updates (and photos) from Caroline to let me know how Daisy was doing. Caroline was extremely attentive and took Daisy for long walks, kept her occupied, entertained and comfortable. Daisy had a lot of extra play, massages and even a special meal or two. She loved it and I would trust Caroline completely with my future Dog Vacation needs!
Caroline & Gordon treated my dog Georgie as well as he is treated at home. He had a wonderful time with them and will, for sure, be visiting again soon. They are awesome!
Caroline is the best host ever! She clearly has a deep care for animals, and it shows on how she treats them. I can tell Maxy had a blast staying with her, being well-fed and happy when we picked him up. Definitely would recommend to others!
Nala had a great experience with Caroline. Caroline kept Nala active, cared for, and loved. She also sent us many great pictures several times a day with great notes about the day. Nala was happy and so were we. Highly recommend Caroline and look forward to Nala visiting again in the future.
Caroline is fantastic! I could tell that our puppy was comfortable with her right away. Caroline is such a caring, patient, and knowledgable person. I can't imagine finding someone better to take care our puppy. She sent lots of pictures and Nettie came home to us calm and happy.
Caroline was great! My little one had a great time and we felt so comfortable seeing photos daily! Will use again!
Caroline was a very loving and caring host. I felt very comfortable leaving my Cockapoo at her home. She sent many photos and text messages. I would certainly recommend her.
Caroline is amazing with my dog, Jake. While with her, Jake receives tons of individual attention and exercise. Each time he comes home from a stay with Caroline, my pup is so relaxed and happy. As a DogVacay host myself, I am very particular about who cares for my pup when I am away...I couldn't be happier!
Caroline did a great job watching our 6 month old Lab mix. Our dog is very high energy and Caroline was very attentive to his needs, walked him frequently and sent us so many pictures to let us know how things were going while we were away. I would definitely use Caroline's services when needed and recommend her to anyone out there looking for help!
The best host ever! Thank you so much!!!
Very nice and reliable. This is the second time we left our dog with Caroline.Always a pleasure!
Took dog in an extra day on short notice.
Caroline went over and beyond even I do for my dog. She took my dog for daily power walks, wiped him clean, and massages him before bedtime. She sent me pics and updates 3-4 times a day. I never had any worries. She really loves dogs.
Is there way to give 10 stars?
We have never been this happy with our dog sitter. She truly loves dogs and is very passionate about caring for them. My dog was pampered in so many ways. While we enjoyed our vacation, our dog was on his as well :-)
Caroline's one dog at a time policy really works for our dog as he is getting older and likes being the center of attention!
Her constant updates with photos made us feel assured that our dog was in good hands. Seeing how happy he was in these photos made us enjoy our vacation even more.
Thank you Caroline, Joey is already looking forward for his next vacation with you.
Caroline was amazing!! So attentive to Nelson's needs! Loved the many daily pictures and updates, will absolutely be using her services again! Thank you!! :)
Left my yorkie with Caroline for 12 days. At first I was worried to leave my dog for so long, but thanks to Caroline's great care I won't have to worry again. She took good care of him and even took the time to consistently update me with pictures. She even managed to make him lose some weight! Overall I loved Caroline's care for my dog and I now know who I'll leave my dog with when I go on vacation!.
My dog had an awesome dog vacay experience with Caroline. Caroline was accomodating and had the right amount of energy for my very energetic puppy :-)This was my first time ever leaving my dog away from family and I felt comfortable and satisfied knowing that my dog was safe and in good hands. Caroline provided daily updates and periodic photos of all the adventures and activies my dog did for the day. I would definitely recommend Caroline; her extensive experience and knowlege about dogs will put your mind at ease. I will be utilizing Caroline as a host again in the future :-)
Caroline and her husband were amazing hosts to our dog, Blake. He was given plenty of exercise, by way of walks and playtime. Caroline gives him fun treats and even baked him his own cookies! I think he had a wonderful time. Caroline seems to really love dogs and treat them as her own. She kept me up to date with plenty of photos and notes about his day.
Blake was returned to us happy, healthy and clean!
I will definitely be using Caroline again!!
Amazing host! Thank you so much for all your great work to make our dog's stay so incredible. We were getting pictures of our dog every day with description of activities. Will definitely book again!
Wow, I can only said that we were very fortunate to have "Caroline D" take care of our dog and we will always be grateful, she is a wonderful caretaker and devoted to making the experience stress free, from her daily updates on how the day was going to walks, feeding, love, massages and yes massages, at one point we were wishing we have stay with her as well. So we can only said thank you and best wishes to you and your family.
Over the past 20 years of being a guardian to my dogs, I do not bring to kennels when I go away. The best case scenario is having someone stay in my home with my dogs or bring them to someone's home. I had to go out of town for a funeral and my regular dog-sitter was booked. The stress of the trip combined with making sure that my 14 year old rescue guy Bruno was well cared for was challenging. My boyfriend found dogvaca for me and I then searched for the best people for us. I was pressed for time but would never compromise the safety of my guy. We went to meet Caroline the night before my trip. She was patient, attentive to every detail with the medications Bruno had to take two times per day, wanted to know his routine snd told me how he would be cared for. My instinct told me that he would be in good hands...and he was!!! Bruno will typically not eat well when I go away. This was not an issue with Caroline. I got daily updates and pictures...he was very comfortable and I was hugely relieved and could focus on family. I highly recommend Caroline but I don't want her to be booked when I need her again!!!
