About Carol Anne

We're an active family with 2 young boys (ages 11 and 9) who love animals! My husband Bill works full time in marketing at University of Penn. I'm a working actress and voice over artist with a sporatic schedule that often allows me to be home off and on throughout the day to care for our wonderful dogs -- Cleo (a terrier mix rescue) and Georgie (a papillon rescue), and Sammy and Zeke who we just adopted last summer after fostering them through WAGS Rescue and Referral for a year! They are shih tzu-poodle mix bonded brothers who are about 10 years old and very affectionate. We haven't let a house full of dogs keep us from continuing to foster others through WAGS but we tend to not have a DogVacay guest while there is also a foster in the house. We want to keep the total of dogs in the house under 5. This way they all get lots of attention and also have lots of fun socializing with our resident friendly dogs. Our furry guests not only get lots of love but also grooming, running around outside in our large fenced in backyard, walks in our quiet suburban neighborhood, and tons of hugs and kisses!

We do have one cat but she's rather feral (even after 16 years) and never comes down from the upstairs level. She's content staying up there away from all of us as much as we've tried to coax her down. Honestly, most of our guests, humans and dogs, don't even know we have a cat.

Last summer we erected a chicken coop! We now have 4 chickens who reside off to the side of the house which means they never come in contact with the dogs. But you can visit with the girls when you bring your dog by. They're very social and fun to watch!

Here at the Wagging Tails Ranch, we are happy to have your dogs join the rest of the family on the couch and on the bed, unless you insist otherwise. We are happy to spoil your furry loved ones but don't want to start any habits you've fought hard to discourage.

Is your dog elderly or disabled? Not a problem. Lots of hands on deck to keep them healthy and happy.

Speaking of health, it's important us that all the dogs staying here are fully vetted, meaning up-to-date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered unless they are under 6 months (female) or 4 months (male).

Our family's health is important too so we do ask that all dogs who stay here be bathed just before arrival to help us keep our home clean and as germ-free as possible! But it's especially important to have them bathed before their stay because my husband and I are very allergic to poison ivy and know how easy it is for dogs to come in contact with it even just walking down a sidewalk. We truly appreciate you working with us to keep our home clean and our skin rash-free! You will be glad to know we are vigilant about keeping our yard free of weeds and plants that could hurt both humans and animals.

CarolAnne and her family have hosted my 7 year old coonhound/dachshund mix several times over the last year. The family has been warm welcoming and wonderful with both my dog and me. Carol Anne has always promptly answered my requests and texts. When I drop my dog off, she goes right off to play, without a look back at mom. When I pick her up, she is happy and relaxed. I am so happy to have found this lovely family
Our dog Frannie had a great time at Carole Anne's. It's obvious that Carole Anne loves dogs, and Frannie was given lots of love and attention. Plus, Frannie had a blast running around their big back yard. I definitely recommend Carole Anne!
It appears that my dog had a great visit with Carol Anne and her family. Her large, fenced yard looks like an ideal place for some puppy fun time! We have already booked our second visit!
Delighted with the service. Pj loved his time there, my dog went with still a little bit of a habit of using a pee pad now he won't even look at one, either scratches the door or comes to get me. All thanks to a few little tips from carol! Will definitely be using again
Callie had a wonderful time with Carol Anne and family. Great communication and several pictures of her vacation there. Thanks again Carol Anne.
Carol Anne and her family....and their FENCED IN backyard....are AWESOME!!!! We are repeat customers and we have zero hesitation recommending her an outstanding sitter. Our sweetie loves to be in her pack.
Carol Anne and family were wonderful. My puppy Sold was taken care of as if he were one of their own. I received text updates and pictures of his stay. I will use Carol Anne again and again. If you are looking for a warm loving environment for you pup call Carol Anne today
Our puppy had a great time! He loved being able to be outside for long periods as well as being able to play with so many other dogs. The next time we need a weekend sitter, we will definitely book with Carol Anne and her family.
Our puppy Cooper had a great vacay with Carol Anne and her family. He was completely smitten with their dog Cleo, who is the perfect size and energy level for non-stop playtime. It was clear that Cooper was well loved and take care of while we were away. We hope that Cooper can make another visit again soon!
Roscoe had a fantastic stay, was well cared for, and had a blast! Thanks, Carol Anne for taking such good care of our guy. Roscoe can't wait to come back!
Carol Anne, and her family are fantastic. I feel so relieved that I have found somewhere to leave Mabel, where I know she will be looked after, the same way I do! Mabel came back from her weekend pooped from playing!
Carol ,Bill and the boys were the best sitters we could have hoped for. Cooper had a blast. I think he'll sleep for the next 3 days. We were told he behaved himself very well. My wife and I would recommend Carol and the boys anytime. Great hosts. No complaints. Can't wait to use them again.
