About Donna

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Pet care professional with over 30 years of experience to provide loving, personal, customized care for your pets. When you go away, they come to play! In home boarding provides a normal, natural environment with lots of love. Our dog friendly home with fully fenced yard is the perfect place for your dog to enjoy his/her vacation. Customized care to meet your pets needs, means we can be your pet's home away from home. Our family includes myself, (Donna), my husband, Dwight, my daughter Cara (17 years old), my son Sam (15 years old), our 12 year old female Bouvier, Wyni and our 9 year old Terrier mix, Peppercorn. I have Canine First Aid training and have worked as a certified, accredited pet training instructor since 2003. With daily photos, via text or email, we will keep you updated on your pet's visit, so that you can enjoy your vacation and know that they are having a wonderful time too! We typically only watch one guest at a time, with the occasional overlap. Our maximum number of guests is two, so that we can provide the highest level of quality care with lots of individual attention. The boarding rate is per day and a custom quote will be given upon request. Please note that if you make a reservation request, the rate will not be accurate, until the custom quote is given.

Where do I begin???

After my long search for someone to take care of my little girl Shasta, I was able to connect with Donna J!!! After our phone conversation, I immediately knew she was the person and dog lover, I wanted to take care of my Shasta. Donna was so professional and personable. She immediately made me feel comfortable and confident that my dog was going to be well taken care of. Her home was so warm and Dog friendly and her family was so welcoming to Shasta. Shasta felt right at home and she immediately began to play with Donna's family and Dogs. She sent me updates 2 to 3 times a day. I will use Donna whenever I need a sitter for Shasta. I recommend any Pet owner to give Donna J a try. She was Amazing!!!!!!
Our experience,leaving our pet withDonna and her family was 100% great. They were kind and caring to Nelson, kept us updated on his progress,we could not have asked for a better experience.Nelson returned home,happy and well adjusted (just as we had left him), such a happy relief for us .
Our pug, Doug, had a wonderful stay with Donna and her family at their beautiful home! Donna was very welcoming to us and took the time to arrange a meet and greet, and to get to know Doug's needs and habits to ensure that he would have an enjoyable time during his stay. We also appreciate that Donna was very accommodating when we needed to shift the dates of Doug's stay due to a winter storm. The daily updates and photos we received throughout Doug's stay also reassured us that he was being well taken care of and having a great time. We would not hesitate to have Doug stay with Donna again and would recommend anyone to have their furry members of their family to stay with Donna and her family.
This was my first time leaving my dog with a "stranger" and I am super happy!!!! She had a great time and Donna sent me pictures and updates. I definitely plan on bringing her back for another visit. It was a big stress reliever knowing that my little girl was happy and safe!!!
Banksy loved spending the week with Donna and her family! Donna sent multiple pictures every day with cute captions keeping us updated on how Banksy was doing. We even received a few videos too, which were adorable. Donna and her family truly love dogs and it shows. Banksy came home happy, well cared for, and tired from all the fun she had playing and running in the backyard. We highly recommend Donna! :)
Donna was wonderful with our sensitive Sheltie. I appreciate all of her care and concern. I firmly believe Jake had a better "hotel" stay than we did. Jake gives two paws up and highly recommends Donna.
After our meet & greet, I knew Foster was in good hands with Donna. I had already heard great things about her from another family in my neighborhood who boarded their dog with her recently. My expectations were exceed. During his vacay, I was sent many photos and updates on Foster, assuring me his stay was going well, and enabling my wife and I to better enjoy our own vacay. Foster received a glowing report card and parting gift as well. Highly recommend Donna and her dog loving-family. Will be utilizing her services soon!
Donna was wonderful!! She is very knowledgeable and caring. We couldn't of asked for anyone better!!! A 10 out of 10!!
Duke was well taken care of and loved his 2 days of play and "petting"!!

Duke gave her a 2 Paws up!! Specially on the petting and extra love he needed!! :)
This is the absolute best place to take your dog!!! No worries. Donna made us feel just like family and truthfully we had no worries about our older dog Reggie. He definitely was relaxed and happy to be there. He is a calm dog and was very comfortable in her house and with her dogs. In 12 years of boarding this certainly was the happiest for us and for Reggie!
Donna was amazing with our Charlie! he's a 2 year old yellow lab, lots of puppy still, energetic and certainly has his "Charlie-isms!" She quickly got him acclimated to her home (a feat!), her pups were non-threatening and Charlie was fast friends with the old girls! We were very comfortable with her knowledge, skill and house rules, especially since it was our first time away from our pup, she made us very comfortable and confident!
While we were away she sent the best photos and we were thrilled Charlie was having a ball- literally! She took the time to work with him on some training and we were encouraged not only by her work with him, but that we too could enforce some new and healthier habits. Our boy came back to us happy, exhausted and we think those 'ol girls even mellowed him out. We love Donna and her dogs!! Highly recommend!
Donna was the most wonderful host! She was accommodating, extremely knowledgeable and incredibly welcoming!! She kept us informed with pictures and videos during her stay. In addition, Donna gave Pixie a gift upon leaving. I wish lived closer to Donna so we could use her all the time. It was a pleasure!
Our dog gets excited when we pull in the driveway. She knows it's time to play.Donna does a great job.
Donna did a fantastic job.
Donna and her family were terrific. I highly recommend her. We really enjoyed getting pictures during the day. Our dog, Casey had a great time playing in Donna's back yard and felt right at home in her house. If you need a dog sitter you can't go wrong with Donna.
Loma had a great experience staying with Donna! I received daily picture and video updates, and Loma came home with a report card and toy. I would be happy to book again!
Bella had another amazing time on her weekend trip! Thank you so much Donna! Looking forward to her next vacay!!
Donna did such a fantastic job with our dog Bella! She sent us lots of pictures and updates throughout her stay, and Bella seemed very happy there when we went to pick her up!
Donna J. provided outstanding care for my dog Jake while we were away. Jake is blind due to a recent SARDS diagnosis and requires special attention. He takes medication 3 times a day and needs to be supervised at all times when outside. So finding just the right person to care for him was important to me and my family. Donna did a fabulous job with Jake and was able to provide him with a safe and caring environment. Her extensive background in training dogs allowed her to read Jake perfectly and meet his needs. Jake can be a feisty little guy and handling him at times can be rather difficult. Donna was able to gain his trust and make him feel comfortable and secure. I highly recommend Donna to anyone looking for a special place for their pet to stay. Jake will be visiting again real soon.
