About Carlina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am the proud owner of a lovable beagle, who enjoys having friendly dogs come for visits.

I have extensive dog sitting experience for friends, family and others. Some of these experiences have included caring for a diabetic poodle which required twice daily blood sugar testing and administering of insulin, caring for a border collie for nearly two months while her owner was away and traveling cross country with a golden retriever who needed transport. Although I have hosted numerous dogs in my home and cared for others in their home, most of my experience actually has been unpaid and as a service to friends and family primarily because I love dogs, enjoy allowing my own dog an opportunity to socialize with others and because I know terrible feeling of having to be away from my pet. Over the years, I have jumped at the chance to host friends' pets, so their owners can get away without worrying.

I know how worrisome it can be to travel and leave your pets at home. I will treat your dog as my own and will stay in contact, sending frequent updates and photos, as you desire.

We are open to hosting two dogs at a time. We allow indoor pets and have a nicely sized fenced yard for running and playing.

I also walk my dog at least twice daily and would ensure your dog gets plenty of exercise, playtime and cuddles.

Carlina is wonderful. My dogs were well cared for and we couldn't be happier! We are so thankful we found her!
She's a great pet sitter and am grateful that she took care of my furbabies. Will definitely use her again. Highly recommended..
This was my first experience and it was seamless. She is caring and attentive and treats them as her own. The pictures she sent were a nice surprise and reassured me that he was doing great.
She treated are girls just like her own Jessie. We receive photos throughout our time away and those just reinforced our faith and how she took care of her babies.

If you have any hesitation about the care of your babies with her you will feel fine when you see how her home is set up pet friendly

Thank goodness they still want to come home with us because they had it really good at her house.

we will definitely use her services in the future
Carlina and Jessie were terrific! Jessie played with my Maggie a lot. They walked together, slept together and had a lot of fun in the three days Mags was there. Carlina emailed photos and it looked like they were perfect together.
Carlina was awesome! Blaze was happy and seemed to fit in perfectly with Carlina and her dog. I would recommend and I will definitely be a returning customer!
Our two big fur babies can be a happy handful, so when we left them with Carlina and her sweet beagle Jesse for two weeks, we were a little worried about how everyone would do. We were soon delighted to learn, in real time, that our Brighid and Lucy were happily settled in. Carlina sent great regular updates and even better photos (we're still shaking our heads about how she got any rest with those three dogs curled up in her bed). We returned to Tyler to find them all three dogs fast friends. We can't think of a better person or a better home-away-from-home for our pups, or yours.
Words cannot describe how awesome it was to drop off my 4 lbs. Yorkie to an actual home instead of a cold concrete kennel. She made 2 new friends and was smiling the whole time she was there. We have already booked 2 more visits. Thank you for the service Carlina, you are so sweet and tender natured. I could tell Lacy was in good hands.
Couldn't have asked for more. It's obvious that she loves dogs and she kept in contact throughout our vacation to let us know how our baby was doing and sent daily photos as well. There is no way we would have been able to relax and enjoy our time away if we had not felt so confident that our sweet Piper was being cared for so well. We will user her everytime we leave if she is available!
Carlina was wonderful to work with. We had to make schedule changes and she great with it. When we picked up our dogs,they ran to her,too, in all of the excitement. It's nice knowing that we can leave our boys in a happy environment if we need to.
It is a blessing to have Carlina to take care of our dog while we are traveling. This was the second time to leave Duchess with Carlina and Duchess walked right in to her home with no hesitation or concerns. We were able to enjoy our travels knowing our pet was in great care.
Carlina was very sweet to Sally and I could tell when I went to pick her up after a week that she was comfortable with both Carlina and her lovely Beagle Jessie. Jessie and Sally made friends, and
Jessie is so used to other dogs visiting that she's very mellow and helps visitors to feel at home.
Carlina is a dogs (and dog parent's) dream come true! I hate to leave Chester at home or the kennel for any reason. So finding Carlina is exactly what we needed. Our little dog Chester has had the Royal treatment with Carlina. Other dogs to play with, walks, gets to sleep with Carlina in her bed at night along with his new dog friend Jessie. She has gone above and beyond and makes me feel like Chester is being treated like her own dog!! I will be a repeat customer from here on out!!!
Carlina was fantastic with our baby, Dakota. We were gone for 10 days and she sent us an update everyday. We were convinced Dakota wasn't even missing us, she seemed so well adjusted with Carlina and Jessie. We will definitely be using her again and are already planning a night away now that we know we have reliable care for our babies. Thank you for the care and attention Carlina!
Carlina was wonderful, she kept us up to date on what Molly was doing, sent pictures of her and her. neww friends. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a doggie vacay.
Carlina was great! She responded quickly to my request and watched my Zeus overnight on a very short notice. I'll definitely be requesting her in the future.
Carlina was great! We all got to meet her before our first "sleep over" and then when we came to stay. Guage remembered her and had very little separation anxiety. She sent a text and pic (He was only there one night).
Carlina was flexible with us and did her best to follow Gauge's 'normal' routine which is a help. Plan to use her again!
Carlina was great to help us out on short notice and she took great care of our pets.
This was my first experience with dog vacay...I have always hated boarding my dogs. I am so blessed to have found Carlina. She is an absolute angel! She sent me pics and updates daily. My dogs were happy and I finally was able to relax on my vacation. I would not hesitate to use Carlina again..she is a wonderful caring woman. Soo thrilled about finding her!!
This was my first time to use DogVacay. I was really concerned when I was first considering this option but when I took Roree to meet Carlina she put me at ease immediately. The whole experience was wonderful! She was so sweet and loving with him. She seemed to really care. Carlina stayed in touch with me every day and sent me pictures. I could tell by the pictures he was happy and well cared for. I feel like we have a new member of the family with Carlina. I have the opportunity to go on another trip with my husband and Roree will be staying with his Auntie Carlina!!
Carlina was excellent with our collie mix Zooey. We knew from the minute we dropped her off that it was going to be a great fit. Carlina kept us updated with pictures the whole time, and it was such a great feeling to know that my dog was in good hands and not having to worry about her being in a kennel at a vet. Zooey got tons of play time and walk time, and was definitely tuckered out by the time we got home tonight. Carlina was super flexible with pick up and drop off time, which allowed us to be able to relax and not feel like we had to rush. We travel to Tyler quite often, so it is great to know that we now have such a wonderful place for our dog to stay. Thank you so much, Carlina!
Wonderful! Great at responding to texts and sending lots of pictures. We will definitely use her again!
Carlina was so great with my Misty. I was in town for a wedding and didn't know anyone, Carlina took care of Misty overnight Carlina gave me frequent updates and was very flexible with my schedule Misty got to play with other dogs and was so happy! Great host, thanks again Carlina!!!
I am so glad I found Carlina!!! Wish I found her sooner. She had Lily and I over for a meet and greet and I knew from talking with her this was a perfect fit for Lily. Her house was lovely and i could tell right from the start that she would treat my lab as her own. She kept me updated with pictures and texts of Lily during her stay and I couldn't be more appreciative of that. I will definitely be using Carlina again!!!
Great host for our little Sophie. Great communication with us about our little puppy. We certainly recommend Carlina , and will use her again as a host for our dog. Nice to know that we can enjoy our vacation, and can trust that our dog was cared for properly..
Carlina is awesome! We never worried a minute about Frank while we were gone. We will definitely be calling her the next time we go out of town. She treated Frank like he was hers. So happy we made this choice!
Carlina takes great care of Scout and Dixie Mae. She keeps us updated with pictures of the funny and cute things they do. They made themselves right at home and enjoyed playing with Jessica. Dogs were nice and tired when I picked them up.
Carlina was absolutely wonderful!! She treated Asher as one of her own! We got the cutest pictures and updates and I never once worried. Her dog Jessie is the sweetest, too! I would recommend Carlina to anyone and everyone!!
Carlina was so wonderful with our 3 furry children. We received pictures and updates throughout the week which put our worried minds at ease. She is so kind and sweet, you can just tell the dogs absolutely love her! We will most definitely be using her again(if she allows it) lol. She made the whole process so easy and wonderful. I highly recommend Carlina!
Awesome! Carlina is sweet!:) Nick and Zozo made themselves right at home. I felt confident leaving my precious babies in her care. :)
Carlina was a great host! Scout and Dixie Mae were in good hands. We did a meet and greet first, and felt very assured our furry kids would have a good time!
I feel so lucky that we found Carlina. She took awesome care of Tia. She kept us posted with texts and pictures which made us feel so much better about having to leave her. Also her dog Jessie is very friendly and got along with Tia great. I would not hesitate to use again!
Carlina was Awesome. I knew as soon as I met her and Jessie (her puppy) that's where I wanted soffee to stay. She was very genuine as to how she felt about pets. Jessie was very loving and playful. Her home was very comfortable and neat. We were gone for 5 days. She kept me informed of how Soffee was doing, with pictures as well. It really made me feel relaxed about Soffee and that made me enjoy my vacation better. I will always use her if she is available and would definitely recommend her to everyone else.
Carlina is an all-pro, hall of fame dog sitter!
Carlina was a great host! She was very responsive to messages and kept in touch during my dog's overnight stay. Will definitely book with her again!
Carlina is the best! She goes above and beyond! I had a car breakdown and wasn't sure how I'd get my dog to her. She came and got her, and cheerfully to boot! She's really great.
Carlina was awesome with our Bogey boy! She was so sweet with him, let him sleep with her just like he's used to, sent us pics and videos to keep us updated, and most appreciated: she is SO flexible! We got so lucky when we found her! Will definitely be back!
Catalina was spectacular. My girls had fun and they were not traumatized even a little. I recommend her without reservation. Thanks so much for a great doggy vacation.
Carlina obviously loves dogs! She took great care of mine and is very personable to deal with. I appreciated that leaving Jill with her was more like a home experience than a kennel. I'll use her again!
