Leaving my dog, Willa, with Dawn was my first experience with DogVacay. Though I was worried about leaving her while on a business trip, Dawn took great care of Willa and sent a lot of awesome pictures and videos to keep me updated on what the two of them were up to. She was exceptionally friendly and Willa was very happy staying with her. I would definitely recommend booking a Vacay with Dawn!
Dawn was incredibly flexible and provided photos and videos of my 2 dogs throughout their stay. They were well taken care of and both the dogs and I look forward to their next stay with her.

Thank you very much Dawn for taking good care of Kola and Pepsi.
Dawn did a great job looking after our miniature schnauzer, Jagger. I felt very comfortable leaving Jagger with her for the entire week. She is a very good communicator and kept us up to date with how Jagger was doing - including pictures. I would definitely book with Dawn again!
I met with Dawn on short notice and it was a very good fit. Brutus has a lot of energy but he has been resting the next day after picking him up.
My flight back was delayed and Dawn was understanding and had no problem keeping Brutus later than expected.
Dawn was a wonderful host to our puppy! She is so welcoming and I know that our dog was in great hands with her. Her entire family is dedicated to each and every dog that comes into her home. We will certainly be using her again.
Convent and great environment for my needy pups!
Dawn was great! She responded to my meet-n-greet right away even though it was pretty late at night. I liked that she worked from home and was able to give my lab/pit mix more attention. She also always had dogs around between her family members and other clients that he loved to play with. When we picked him up he was tired for a couple days from all the playing, I think he misses his new friends. This was our first time leaving him with someone else so I was really nervous about it. We had done the meet-n-greet, so he was familiar with her, the other dogs, and the house. When we dropped him off he ran to her door. This combined with the pictures and videos she sent helped me relax and enjoy my vacation without worrying about my pup. I will be taking him back the next trip we go on.
Dawn is clearly a dog lover and will take great care of your pup while you are away. We appreciated her putting up with Milo's quirkiness while we were gone for a long weekend.
Dawn took great care of my pup while I was gone! I enjoyed getting photo updates while I was away and she made sure that she got the daily medication that I left for her. I would definitely trust her to watch my pet again!
Dawn and her family are exceptional people, who clearly love animals! We felt very comfortable leaving our 10 year old dog Merlin with her.....especially after the meet and greet. Not only is she knowledgeable about dogs, she is kind, caring, compassionate and understanding, exactly the kind of person who could handle our 'senior' dog, providing the added care he required including his crazy medication regime. Dawn made it so easy by sending us photos and updates, which we so loved and she even included our extended family. She was awesome with Merlin. We call her the dog whisperer! We never worried about him once the whole week we were gone knowing he was in her good and capable hands. Merlin was thoroughly loved and came home very happy and content. We would highly recommend Dawn to anyone and will definitely use her again.
