Collette is caring and responsible and she loves dogs. She sent videos and pictures of Finn to me daily. He seemed very happy and worn out when he got home. She even brought him to me! I would definitely recommend her!
Colette was a fantastic host for our dog's Ripley and El. While on vacation, she sent us pictures and videos that let us know that our pups were happy and healthy. I was worried that they wouldn't miss us! We brought along a crate with some soft bedding and she laundered it and even gave us some scarves from a NYE picture she took with the pups. I would recommend her as a host 100 times over.
Colette is absolutely amazing !!!!
Colette does an amazing job with our dog. It's obvious that she enjoys caring for dogs very much. We appreciated how she sent us several pictures and videos everyday. You won't go wrong booking her.
Colette was extremely easy to work with, she made everything comfortable for me and my boy! My dog came home happy and very tired, he must have played his little heart out!
I am so happy with the care that Colette provided. She is very thorough and attentive with the care of your furry kids. Colette really seems to have love for animals. I enjoyed the videos of playtime and all pets seemed to be having fun. I love that they are not restricted and able to sit on the couch as my Bentley does at home. I will definitely book with Colette again.
Colette was perfect for our pups!!! She is so sweet and caring with them. She has a den devoted to them with comfy beds and couches and a sliding glass door to a big fenced in yard. Our dogs stayed over Christmas and she made them stockings and homemade treats! She took them to the dog park and sent us pictures and videos everyday. She seems to love what she does. I highly recommend her!
The absolute best sitter you could ever ask for! Absolutely amazing! Would highly highly recommend her to anyone going through the Nashville area. Great communication and a happy pup!
Our Rowan loves Colette and FiFi. Colette sent us videos of Rowan while we were away - comforted us to know he was being treated so well and was having a great time (apparently having too much fun and cuddles to miss us very much at all)! Her yard is great -- like her own private dog park! He loved it and so did we!
Collette is absolutely amazing. I wish I could give her more than 5 stars because she deserves it. Our 9 month old Airedale is very enegentic and difficult but she was SO patient and understanding with him. She got all of his energy out, took him to the dog park and played with him all day at her cute home. He had a blast! She's a true dog lover. Originally we dropped him off for daycare while we started our move but it turned into 3 days. She was so understanding. It felt like we had a really good friend who was doing us the hugest favor. We're so happy with our experience and highly recommend her!
Colette was amazing. She sent us pictures and videos every day and sent Mia home with her own Christmas stocking filled with goodies. You won't find a better value in Nashville.
Colette ensured I had daily videos or pictures of my baby girl. I was confident my baby was well taken care of and I didn't worry not once. She is very good with dog and I will be using her again!
Wow! I cannot say enough good things about Colette. My dog had such a blast with the other pups at her house hanging out and on trips to the dog park. Colette has a great set-up for the dogs at her house and yard, and the dogs loved her. She sent me great pictures and videos while I was out of town, and she even made turkey and sweet potatoes for the dogs on Thanksgiving! Finally, Colette gave my dog a personalized Christmas stocking with treats when I picked her up. Fabulous, fabulous dog sitter!
Colette was a wonderful host; she made my puppy feel right at home! I would definitely choose her again next time I am in Nashville. Thanks, Colette!!
Colette is the absolute best! Hunter is not much of a social dog but Colette brings the energy and love out of him. I'm not sure if she is a dog whisperer, but she does one good of a job with the dogs!! I love her!!!
I would highly recommend Colette. We have never left our dog for five days. She is very friendly and truly loves dogs. We received emails and videos every day and Colette took her to the dog park and Maggie had other dogs to play with. I would definitely use her service again and know your dog would be well cared for. I know Maggie was.

Colette was amazing! Winston hates being boarded but Colette was a great match for us and made him feel at home! He slept a lot once we picked him up after playing with his new friends and many trips to the park. She even gave us a little gift for Winston. Also, Winston eats green beans with his food and takes seizure medicine and she was awesome with those requests! And sent plenty of pictures and updates while we were away!
Colette is amazing and responsible
We cannot say enough good things about Collette - we just loved her. She is so kind and caring. Milo had the best time staying with her and FiFi. She always kept us updated on their many activities. We would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter for their dog baby!
We wish we lived closer to Colette because we'd bring Jasper regularly!
Colette went above and beyond our expectations making our DogVacay and first time vacation to Nashville over the top!
Our 8 month old puppy Jasper loved Colette and Fifi, he was sleeping by the time we picked him up. We really liked the updates Colette provided us with while Jasper was in her care. Her dog Fifi is a sweetie, just like Colette!
We highly recommend Colette to care for your pooch!
Thanks again Colette,
Sarah, Tom, & Jasper
I randomly found Colette on Dogvacay. After reading her reviews, meeting with her and talking to some of her clients, i was convinced she would be a good fit for us. She was!!! She far exceeded my expectations in the way she loved my dog. She truly loves dogs and cares for them beautifully. I will definetly use her again and refer her whenever possible :)
Collette D. exudes warmth, vivacity and love for all dogs. As soon as we met her, we felt as though we had known her for years. We were worried that Ella would have trouble socializing with other dogs, Collette knew exactly what to do to set her at ease. She had her wagging her tail nearly off, she was so happy. This was notable because Ella had not wagged her tail since her Doggy brother died weeks ago.

We left Ella wearing a diaper after her prior surgery and returned to a potty trained pup. Collette readily answered our text questions and regularly sent videos of Ella. Ella has been spoiled all week. Collette even let Ella sleep with her because of her first night jitters. I am afraid she will not come with us when we pick her up!!!!

Thank you, Collette for allowing us to relax on vacation knowing our Ella was on a luxury vacation of her own.

Colette was awesome. She took great care of our dog. She sent a pics during the day so that I could see how he was doing. He had a fabulous day. Would def recommend Colette to anyone.
Collette and FIFI were awesome! Lola had the best time and I received a ton of pictures and videos of the pups! Lola will definitely be staying with her again!
This was my little dog's first time with a sitter instead of a boarding facility. I am 100% certain he enjoyed his stay. Colette provided daily pictures and video, as well as new food ideas for Jaycee. She also provided much needed exercise for him at the dog park. I was very pleased overall and plan to send him to daycare 2-3 days a week with Colette.
Colette was great! She is super nice and personable with both people and pets! Chloe had a great time with Colette and we would highly recommend her!
Colette was very nice and took great care of Scooby. I loved all of her check-ins!
Colette and Fifi are PAWESOME. Hurston got the Red Carpet treatment indeed; he almost didn't want to leave!!! Really loved all the chewables to keep my buddy busy, and the gorgeous backyard is easily accessible. Colette is SO sweet and wonderful, her excellent care made the stress of boarding our pup for the first time totally go away. Can't recommend her enough!!!
Colette is such an incredible canine caregiver! Our Huey is spoiled rotten and has never spent a night away from us, so naturally we're choosy. The experience with Red Carpet was awesome. In addition to Colette's fun and games, there were other dogs to play with, including permanent resident FiFi. Huey's comfort and absolute joy were evident in the many text updates and several videos sent throughout his stay. Colette really gets to know and develops a true love for dogs in her care. Huey will definitely be returning!
Colette is the DOG WHISPERER! I was in desperate need of a pet sitter at the last minute, during a holiday weekend. I read Colette's other reviews and immediately knew she would treat my dog as her own. To say she went above and beyond would be an understatement. She sent several updates each day, including pictures and videos. She cooks her "guests" fresh chicken and veggies, makes them homemade "Pupsicles," and knows a multitude of tricks to calm any anxiety they may experience in a new environment. My Penny didn't want to leave! At the end of our dog's "pet vacay," Colette even took the time to show me her grooming secrets, as well as give me her personal recommendation for a professional groomer with experience in working with Penny's curly labradoodle fur. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, and I know Penny will be excited for her next "vacation."
My chihuahua is shy and a little nervous but he felt very comfortable with Colette. Colette is super nice and sweet and you can tell she has a true love of animals. Will definitely use her again when I'm in Nashville.
Colette has been looking after Buck for a while now and she is truly wonderful. Always attentive and spoils the little guy rotten. I love being able to leave Buck with Colette and not feel any anxiety at all. Buck always requires a Vacay from his Vacay because he is wiped from having so much fun.
Colette was wonderful! She sent pictures and videos, and took excellent care of Riggins! She even brought him to the dog park to play :) He had such a great time, and I didn't have to worry about him while I was at work all day! I will definitely use Colette again in the future!
Colette is the best. Paco loves her, we love her. Absolutely the best boarding situation I've ever found.
Left my dog, Neville, for the day with Colette and Fifi. When I left he looked a little sad, by the time I got back he didn't even want to get in the car with me!! He had such a great time. Red Carpet has a great location with lots of room for the dogs to romp. Colette is like a dog whisperer and Fifi is a little love! I will DEFINITELY leave Neville there again and plan on using these services when I need to go out of town!
Colette was wonderful! She made our little spoiled dog feel very loved indeed. He really enjoyed her large fenced in backyard, and all the toys she had inside her comfortable home. He was thrilled to be able to play with her adorable little Havanese Fifi. She sent us frequent messages and videos during the day. She was warm, generous and nurturing, and we could not have asked for a better dog sitter! Our dog can't wait to visit her again the next time we are in Nashville.
