Always a fun stay for Jake. Excellent care and They really like the dogs they care for.
Garfield only spent one night with Katrina and her dog Winston, but as to be expected, he was well taken care of, relaxed and seemed to be thoroughly enjoying playing with Winston and Katrina's children. I hope to be able to leave Garfield there again in the future.
Katrina is great... She had Koa for a lengthy stay and her and her children took Koa into their home as if she was one of their own.
Excellent care and service as always!!!
We were very happy with our experience at Katrina's. She was very accommodating and made us feel very comfortable. She had a great rapport with our dog right away. I would absolutely bring my dog back to stay at Katrina's and recommend her to others,
Katrina and her family are wonderful, kind-hearted, and thoughtful animal stewards. What a treat it was to notice just how comfortable my dog, Lucy, was when I dropped her off the second day (I highly recommend booking more than one day, so that your dog can adjust through repetition). Lucy just trotted right into Katrina's house, barely giving me a tail wag goodbye. Which was just the assurance I needed to see! It told me volumes about the consideration of this family and their dedication to providing excellent care for my dog--who is my family.

So, now, Katrina's family are like my surrogates. I look forward to the next time I need care for Lucy, because I know just who to call.

I highly recommend this family for your dog-sitting needs. What a privilege!
The day was perfect for me and my 2 pups. I was able to drop them off relatively early in the morning and pick them up about 11 hours later. They were very was I. The girls will definitely be back to play.
I have left Jake with Katrina 4 times for numerous days. I have been very pleased and so has Jake. Jake is a 118 lb. Czech Shepherd, and very active. He feels very at home there.
I wanted to find a place with a big fenced in yard and a family for my doberman Marshal to stay. He had an absolutely wonderful time at Katrina's. He loved playing with their dog and children. He came back to me in excellent condition. I could tell he had gotten a lot of exercise. He was there 19 days and loved every minute of it. He will definitely go back next trip!
Very sweet couple who make any dog a part of their family!
As usual, picked up a happy dog. excellent service.
As usual Jake's stay was great. Jake seamed happy and well exercised when I picked him up.
Awesome experience! Thank you to Dog Vacay and the flexibility of Katrina and her family. An emergency from our previous sitter left us to find someone the day before our family vacation. Katrina stepped up and we were on the ferry that evening with our Labrottie , Joule! Every time I checked in on her, Katrina was quick to reply, and sent several pictures. We have pictures of Joule out for a walk, and days later we received pictures of her kids loving on Joule. Her profile states they are experienced with large breed dogs, and it was very evident from the moment we pulled in the drive. I am so grateful for the peace of mind so while we were out of town. I would highly recommend!!
This was a great place to leave my pup. Jake is high energy and loves activity and I was concerned about him being around other dogs. Jake is a bit large for under two years. He came home happy and exhausted. The Dorns are great to work with. I will when needed be taking Jake back.
Lucy seemed very happy there. It's a wonderfully kind family. Unfortunately Lucy killed 2 of their chicken, but they were very gracious about it and Lucy may come back again. I was very happy. Jutta Suhr
The entire family was warm and welcoming to my older dog. They even took him to the beach, which is his favorite place. This is a vacay for dogs who enjoy activity around them and a nice big yard.
