About Carol

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
If you are looking for a secure and loving home for your dog, look no further. I am in my 5th year with Dogvacay, and all of my adult life of caring for animals. I have worked for 7 years at the Humane Society in Tampa, and 2 years at the county shelter in Nassau. My husband and I are both retired now, so we are home most of the time with our own dogs or on the beach, just a short 2 blocks from our property. Our yard is small, totally fenced, and we walk the beach at least 2 times a day. References are available. I am comfortable administering shots and oral medicines, and free nail trims are always available for my furry clients. Unfortunately due to our small yard and home we are only able to take dogs up to 40lbs. We require that your pet be spayed/neutered and housetrained. Come for a free visit and see why your dog's vacay may be better than yours!

So thankful for the hospitality for our pup. This made our vacation enjoyable, knowing she was in such good hands. I think our dog missed her when she came home :)
Very good experience. Carol clearly likes animals and took good care of our pup.
Great job Carol! Again, Butter had a great time, almost like she never left home!
Butter had a great stay with Carol and Gene. She is very timid but felt right at home and comfortable with her surroundings and new doggy buddies. From here on out Butter will be staying with them when we go out of town! Thanks again!
My dog had the BEST time with Carol and her husband. These 2 people are the best.
Our pomeranian, Napoleon, loved his vacation home. He came home calm and happy. He loved the long walks and the chance to play with other dogs. He looks forward to his next stay.
Starbucks had a great Summer break. He will be back with Carol in about a month for another stay. She took great care of him and we got daily picture updates. All are happy!
We had a fantastic experience! Our dog Olympia, was nervous when we took her to a place she had never been, but Carol's knowledge of dogs and easy- going demeanor quickly calmed her down.
Carol sent us pictures of Olympia playing with her friendly dog, napping on a comfy bed and walking on the beach.
It was like doggie vacation, she was having a great time.
We highly recommend Carol and will definitely take Oly back next time we are in Fernandina!
Our little Rigley stayed with The Pet Nanny for 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend while we attended a conference in Fernandina. Carol and her husband were absolutely wonderful! They sent multiple updates and pictures everyday! Rigley definitely had a great time and loved playing with their dogs (who were very friendly as well)! I can't say enough good things about them, except that I wish they lived in Atlanta so they could keep Rigley anytime we were away! It's such a great feeling to know your baby is being taken care of and having fun!
Carol & Gene were great with Apollo! He was nervous about being away from us, and they sent me 2 texts with pictures, assuring me he was ok! I will use them again when I am in their area!
Carol and husband are amazing....tango enjoys every moment... Look fw,to do it again...
We cannot say enough about Carol! I have never left my dog with anyone before, and almost chose not to go on vacation since the house we had rented was not pet friendly. By chance we found Carol and it was the best experience I have ever had. Carol sent picture throughout the day of the dogs having a blast. She took the dogs to the beach, let them play in the yard, and at the end of the day, she had happy dogs!
I would recommend Carol to anyone, her family is absolutely wonderful!
Carol and her husband were super. Abby had a wonderful time walking on the beach and playing with her awesome dogs. We felt very comfortable leaving her with Carol rather than stuck in a kennel. Carol sent pictures and gave updates throughout the week so we could she Abby was in good hands. She returned a very happy girl and slept well when we got home after her fun vacation!
Carol was everything we were looking for and more. She graciously took Zoey in last minute, and quickly made Zoey feel at home. She was very supportive in listening to our concerns with Zoey and kept us updated with pictures and texts throughout the day. As a bonus, our pup was exhausted from her playing and walk on the beach and slept soundly the rest of the day. Highly recommend choosing Carol as your next dog sitter.
Thanks to Carol for hosting our dog Shea. He was very happy and that makes all of us glad we brought him to her loving home.
Carol was everything I hoped for in caring for our lab. She is super nice and provided a great time for Lottie. I just hope Lottie didn't wear her out with too much ball playing!
Carol was a wonderful pet sitter for our little Beagle! I don't think she wanted to leave to come home with us! Thanks so much Carol for making our trip more enjoyable by not having to worry about our baby.
Carol was great with my Cavalier. She gave her all her meds and food as directed. She sent me pictures of Audrey throughout her stay. I would highly recommend Carol as a host to your pet.
another wonderful stay for Daisy. She has truly found a warm and welcoming place to stay when we are away and seems to love every minute with Carol and her husband and her friendly pups!
Thank you doesn't say enough for the care my dog Charlie received during his stay with Carol and Gene.
They dispel the myth that if something sounds to good to be true, it probably is.
Carol is true to her word and took care of Charlie as he was one of their own. I received many pictures, videos and updates during his vacay, which made my vacay even more enjoyable just knowing he was happy and having fun. I think Charlie had a fantastic stay. Carol worked around Charlies issues when she could have very easily said I don't want to deal with that. Charlie has a new girlfriend in Maggie, loved getting the pics of them together. Gene even took Charlie out on a bike ride/run. A big back yard to play in was very nice too.
So if you're looking for the 5 star host, this is the real deal. Actually 5 stars are not enough. I will no doubt use them again.
Carol did an awesome job watching my Australian shepherd Leiah! And kept me updated with many pictures and videos to ease my mind. Leiah had a great time and made some new friends while I was in Orlando for training, and will make sure to bring Leiah back to carol next time I go to Orlando!
Carol is awesome. Rosie was happy, well cared for and quickly became a member of their family. I am so grateful for their care for her. Rave reviews!!
Carol & Gene were excellent 'hosts' for our dog, Pumpkin. The night we left for our trip, it began to rain & thunder and we were a little concerned because she doesn't like that type of weather. We called Carol to check on her and were delighted to find that she was all tucked in bed with Gene & their dog with no fear at all. We received daily pictures and reports of their activities. When we picked her up, she was glad to see us but very relaxed and at home with all of her playmates.
Carol and her husband took great care of our young, energetic dog on New Year's Eve. I can tell our dog had a great time playing with Carol's dogs because she came home tired. I was a little nervous about being away from our dog during the holiday because of the fireworks but Carol kept a close eye on her and I got her back safe and sound the next morning. I would definitely use this host again.
Carol & Gene took wonderful care of our dog, Jenny. They have a lovely home and nice backyard for her to stay & play. They were very good at keeping me informed on how Jenny was doing and sent wonderful pictures all throughout her visit. I highly recommend them and will absolutely use them again.
Carol and her husband were absolutely wonderful from our first meeting on! After our meet and greet, we felt completely comfortable about leaving our golden retriever with them while we were away for the holidays. Carol was so kind to send us daily updates with pictures to assure us that our sweet boy was being well taken care of and was happy. We would not hesitate to leave him with Carol again and recommend her highly!!!!!!! Thanks so much for everything!
Dave and Pam
I highly recommend Carol! She took excellent care of my dog and treated her like her own.
It's Daisy's home away from home! We are so happy we found Carol and Gene!
They did an awesome job! Always kept in contact letting us know how our dog was doing. They sent pictures and videos. We trust them completely!
Wow- what a great experience - Carol K was so helpful in the interview process and made sure we were comfortable before we ever went on our trip. I received numerous pictures and videos of Chewy while he was staying with Carol K. It was such a relief to be able to focus on my trip and not be worried about my pet. The other pets were so friendly and made it a great experience for Chewy who isn't regularly around other dogs. I wish there was a 10 star rating as it is deserved. I could tell when I picked Chewy up that he had the best time ever!
Carol and her husband were absolutely a pleasure to work with and they took excellent care of our lab, who despite our fondness for him was not going to the beach with us. In fact, to judge by his demeanor when we picked him up, I'm pretty sure he had a better time at Carol's than he does on a typical day at home, since we don't have the nice fenced yard to run in and the other dogs to play with like Carol does. Dropping him off was quick and easy and Carol texted updates (with photos) to keep us apprised of his goings-on.

All in all an excellent value, in the true sense of the word, since we have paid more while receiving a less nice arrangement for our dog in the past. I wholeheartedly recommend Carol and, schedules permitting, our dog will certainly be returning for a stay with her in the future.

Finally, just to be clear, my computer seems to have a glitch and won't allow me to select any stars at all, leave alone the "five stars" I am trying to select -- so even if this review shows zero or some number less than five, we are actually giving Carol five stars. :)
Carol was great! We were on vacation for a week and received constant updates and pictures during our time away. I'm pretty sure our dog was sad to leave Carol's house! Next time we go away, we'll definitely be contacting her again!
Our dog had another great stay with Carol! She goes above and beyond and Daisy seems very happy to be there. Thank you Carol.
Carol and her husband were great. They treated our dog as if he was one of their own pets. They constantly updated us with pictures and videos which was very nice and helped put us at ease. We highly recommend using Carol. We will definately have her and her husband watch our dog again.
Carol took outstanding care of our 7 month old Golden Retriever, Daisy. She was prompt, professional and warm during all of our interactions. Daisy stayed with Carol for two weeks and throughout that time we received many pictures, updates and videos of Daisy. Also, Daisy began acting sick the first night we left her and Carol promptly took Daisy to our vet and contacted me to keep me informed, luckily it was just nerves on Daisy's part. I would highly recommend Carol as a dog sitter and would happily use her again.
Our pup Murphy had a great time with Carol and her pups. She sent us pictures and video of Murphy through out his stay. She has a large property with plenty of room to run. We were very happy and Murphy was too! We will defenitly use her to watch Murphy again.
Working with Carol was a delighful experience. I requested to drop off my dog the same day that the reservation was submitted. Carol promptly replied and was graciously accomodating! In the days she kept my Sophie, she kept me informed with regular status updates via text and picture messages. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone looking for someone who goes the extra mile with their pet. She completely exceeded my expectations! My family and I have already spoken of reaching out to her the next time we're in town.
I usually leave my little dog, Savannah, with my sister but she was unavailable over the long Memorial Day weekend. I was nervous about leaving her with strangers but she did so well with Carol and her husband! They had me over a few days before hand to meet them and their little dogs and I felt very confident that my dog would be well taken care of. I was so pleased to see the pictures of the dogs together that she posted and when I arrived to pick her up, Savannah seemed quite at home and very relaxed. I will definitely use Carol again and I cannot say enough how happy I was with the entire experience!!
