About Dana

17 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a couple that loves dogs! We have a rescued English Bulldog that is spoiled rotten with a laid back demeanor-she's a professional napper! We have an Olde English Bulldogge puppy who thinks he's still small and can be a ball of energy. He plays hard, loves hard and sleeps hard. We understand what it feels like to leave your dog with others while you're away and we aim to please you and your dog so that you both can have a stress and worry-free vacation. We will consider caring for any size dog and we have space to accommodate so that each dog in our home feels comfortable in his/her own space. If you are planning a trip or just need daycare, let us pamper your pooch!

*At this time, we are accepting new guests under 50 pounds, English bulldogs, and previous guests. Please feel free to send me any questions you may have.

**We offer a multiple dog discount for dogs from the same home.

My dogs enjoyed their day stay - thank you Dana.
This was our first stay with Dana. Always concerned about leaving our kids with strangers but Dana and her husband are really wonderful people and left no doubt that they are real "dog persons".
They kept us posted and the kids were in excellent spirits when we came to pick them up.

My husband and I are so happy that we found Dana to care for our two pugs. Very professional and caring. She made the process very easy for us, and we loved that we received pictures and updates throughout the weekend. Diesel and Turbo loved being at her home, and we will without a doubt be using her boarding services in the future.

Great experience with sitters Dana & Robert who love dogs as much as I do. My Bulldog had a blast with their dogs. Dependable and conscientious. Enjoyed picture updates. Our dog came home happy and content which reflects his experience. Would not hesitate to rebook in the future.

This was our first time leaving our two dogs with anyone. We were so relieved to find Dana and her husband through DogVacay, as we had not heard of this service before. Dana and Robert are the most friendly and kind people that we could have hoped to find to care for our babies. Dana sent us daily pix of our babies, along with updates. Knowing that they were being cared for so well and not being locked in a small kennel for a week, allowed us to enjoy our vacation much more!

We will never hesitate to have Dana watch our dogs in the future and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her services to anyone who wants a loving, carrying, safe environment for their fur-babies!

Thank you Dana!

Dana & Robert are "TOP OF THE LINE" people & sitters! This was the 1st time we've left our hairy child with sitters & NEVER ONCE WORRIED!!! We
felt free to enjoy our vacation KNOWING our baby was being well cared for. They are loving, kind, people. Their home reflects that as well. It was cool & comfy inside. The yard was perfect for the dogs to play, & it was very clean. They sent the BEST PICTURE updates every day. We couldn't help but to laugh & smile. My husband & I labeled them -
THE DOGGIE WHISPER'S!!! They even go out of their way to protect the animals by setting up doggie gates [just in case]. Then the dog's are allowed to join in together.They feed them separately insuring each dog gets to enjoy & eat their meal. We can not THANK them enough for the GREAT love attention & care they gave to our baby. 5 stars aren't enough. THEY ARE THE BEST EVER! We will be asking them to watch our baby from now on.
OUR MANY THANKS to DANA & ROBERT
GOD BLESS
LOVE THE McSWAIN'S

I was very happy to find someone familiar with our bulldog's needs. Thank you Dana for giving our dog a great place to stay while we are away. We definitely will be back!
Dana and her husband were once again wonderful hosts for my two cocker spaniels. They were aware of the summer heat and kept the dogs comfortable. I always love the pictures Dana sends me while she has the dogs!
Dana is a great dog sitter who is always consciensous of my dogs needs. She is a good comunicator and sends me pictures regularly while she has the dogs.
This was my first time using dog vacay. Very happy with the meet n greet. Made me at ease of leaving my dog with them for the weekend. Will be using dana & Robert again next month when I go away for a longer time.
Dana is one of our preferred sitters for our two guys. This was their second visit and they were comfortable as soon as we arrived.
This was my first time using a dog sitter and Dana made it super easy! She was very conscientious, communicated well and Daisy had a great time!! There were other dogs vacaying and I was pleased with the introduction process and felt very confident leaving Daisy in Dana's care. I loved getting the photos showing that Daisy was getting on well and had made her self at home!

I'm so glad to have Dana look after my Paris! She's so happy under her care. I'll definitely have her take care of Paris again in the future.
Thank you Dana & Robert for taking good care of Molly over the weekend. I'm glad she did so well at your house.
Wonderful, simply wonderful experience! Everything went smooth, and I couldn't be more happy with the service. I'd be comfortable going back anytime. A sincere thank you to Dana and household for giving Syd a good home for a weekend.
When we were leaving for the weekend and needed a place for our German Shepherd, "Reese", to stay we found DogVaca and figured we would give it a try, since our poor dog has always hated to be boarded at the local Fur and Feathers "pet resort". Dana was so easy to communicate with prior to our trip and kept up the communication throughout our weekend away. She sent pictures and videos of our pup and made us feel very comfortable about leaving her. Our dog can be a handful (lots of energy and very smart!) but, Dana and Robert handled her confidently from the very beginning of her stay. Reese was comfortable in their home and loved playing with their dogs and getting lots of exercise playing fetch and in their pup pool. I think if it was up to Reese she would have stayed with Dana, Robert and their pups, rather than coming home! We have had such a great experience and will definitely be booking with Dana and Robert again, if they will have our Reese back!

We were very hesitant to leave our two pups with anyone, until we met fellow DogVacay hosts Dana and Robert.
We had a Meet & Greet a few months ago and it went well. Seeing how they care for their dogs and home put us at ease. Knowing our pups would be taken care of the way we care for them, I booked a vacay as soon as we had our trip planned. The drop off was easy and they followed our feeding and care instructions. We received photos and updates of our dogs' daily activity. Our pittie and their new puppy got along well and our picky little dog fell in love with Dana! We are definitely pleased and can't wait to use them again.

Dana and Robert were wonderful hosts for my dogs this week. They exercised them and sent lots of pictures to me while I was away. I look forward to my dogs' next stay with them while I am away!
Sitters were great and sent us pics of our pups while we were away, never had to worry about them. Will use them again :)
Dana was great! She accepted my last minute request, and she also agreed to keep him an extra unscheduled day. My dog, Sokka, had a great stay! Dana sent pictures and video of him on his Vacay! I'm so thankful to have found Dana and this service.
My husband and I felt very confident leaving our little Rusty with Dana C. We live in West Covina and dropped him off in Bakersfield before going to Yosemite. Dana is such a nice person, she has a great country personality and she has 2 cute bulldogs. Her home is so warm and cozy and has the perfect yard for dogs to play. Dana sent the cutest pictures of our pet while we were out. We'll be in the Sequoias soon and miss Dana C. is on our list to watch our pet again. Thanks Dana we'll see you again soon! We highly recommend Dana, your pet will have a great time with her cute bulldogs.

My dog is really happy with Dana. Dana taking care of my dog very well. We will leave him again with her.
Dana was great! She was very responsive during the reservation process and was upfront about potential issues with sitting my dog since she recently got a new puppy. While I was away, she sent plenty of photos and videos of Mimi. It was quite comforting! I will definitely take my dog there in the future.

Dana was very friendly at the "meet and greet." Home is perfect for dogs who like to spend time indoors and outdoors. We received photos of our dogs and updates while on vacation. When we arrived to pick them up, we could tell they comfortable in her home. We were very pleased with the love she showed our dogs and plan to use her home again.
