Your pet will be treated like Royalty. I work from home so I am available 24/7 to love and play with your dog. I have a large fenced in yard run around and play or a soft bed for your dog to cuddle in. No cages here just a place to call home while you are away.
I also offer pet sitting and house sitting. I just want to help you find the best option for you to make sure your pets are safe and happy while you are away.

We unfortunately had to cancel our trip due to our pet's illness but we were very pleased with Donna's communication with us. She accepted our reservation very last minute and understood when we needed to cancel at the last minute also. I would definitely use her service again in the future if we plan a trip up her way.

We've used Dogvacay in the past and will continue to use it in the future.
Donna is an amazing woman who obviously, loves dogs and dogs love her. My Bichon had a wonderful stay at her home. I would recommend Donna when leaving your pets for an afternoon, an over night stay or longer.
Donna did a great job taking care of our little dog. She had him making friends and sent updates as to how he was doing with some pictures. Was comforting to know he was doing okay while we were out of town. She was friendly and accommodating. Would recommend using her for your pet sitting needs! She takes care of all types of animals.
Our first time experience with Donna was a great one and our babies were well taken care of. Thank you for your caring and peace of mind.
Donna is a very nice lady. She was very attentive to my fur babies. When one my dogs didn't feel well she kept in contact with me everyday even after I got home from my vacation and I took my dog to the vet. Donna is awsome!!
Liam seemed very happy with his vacation. We were very happy with the care he received. We really enjoyed the daily messages and pictures.
We would definitely leave our little June with Donna the next time we go away!
Donna was ABSOLUTELY great. She was more then helpful. She watched my 11 month old puppy and took great care of him. She is warm and kind. My pets went right into her house without hesitation. She also watched my other little dog and puppy at the same time on another occasion. They can be very playful and full of energy. She sent me updates while I was away. Its nice to be able to trust someone with my precious animals. She even gave me helpful hints on dog care.. She was flexible as I was running late,. She is great. I would recommend her. She treats pets like family. Thank you Donna..
Donna is a friendly lady and make me feel comfortable leaving my lovely Rocco in her care and i like the idea that i can get to see photos of Rocco on what his doing , playing and be friendly with other dogs ect.. He have a great time under Donnas care so if Rocco is happy and happy as well and i will keep contact Donna for her service in the future.
Donna did amazing. It was my first vacation away from my 4 month old puppy. She sent me pictures to help ease my anxiety. I was happy to find that my puppy was her normal playful and happy self away from me. I'd recommend Donna to any of you who need a place for your dogs to go.
Donna was great with watching our dogs for us while we were on vacation. She sent us pictures daily along with daily updates of how the dogs were doing. We are definitely going to have Donna watch our dogs again for us in the future. We would recommend anyone who needs their dogs to be watched while they are away on vacation to Donna. Donna was great.
Jett had a great time with Donna and her pack. Couldn't have been more pleased.
Donna was great to work with and took good care of our Great Dane. I will use Donna a lot in the future.
I am completely pleased with the care my 3 large girls received from Donna for the 4 days they were in her care. She sent pictures every day showing how much fun they were having at her house. She has a large fenced back yard that enabled them to play several times a day. I will never board my dogs at a kennel again.
Donna did a great job taking care of our babies while we were out of town. She sent pictures and updates how they were doing which was great to see and read. Took some anxiety out of leaving them. Would definitely use Donna again!
Donna kept our babies overnight so that we could go to Orlando to meet family and friends. She kept us updated with photos and messages about how our girls were doing. They were happy to see us, of course, when we picked them up, but it was easy to see that they had been well cared for in our absence. I'd recommend Donna to anyone looking for a pet sitter in the Hudson, FL, area.
This was our first time ever leaving our dogs with anyone but the experience was pleasant! Donna was so friendly and welcoming from the minute we walked in her door. She greeted me, my husband and our fur babies like she knew us all for years!. Her caring nature put us at ease to leave our dogs in her care. She sent pictures and updated us on how our pets were doing while we were gone. Which was so nice and so reassuring. Thanks Donna! You`re awesome!
very caring
I was so pleased with the care Donna took of our 2 babies. Donna responded quickly each time I contacted her to check on them. She also frequently sent us pictures, which totally put us at ease and allowed us to enjoy our cruise. Seeing pictures of them comfortable in her home and playing in the yard was awesome. It was so hard to leave them but we know they had fun on their vacation too :) I would not hesitate to use Donna and Dogvacay again. Thank you Donna!!!!
Donna was wonderful. I needed a home for Bailey to stay while we were gone and didn't want to Kennel her. Bailey seemed to have a great time and Donna sent me pics via text message through out the week to keep me updated on how Bailey was. I would definitely use DogVacay again over a boarding place.
The friend who was watching my dogs decided when I was boarding my flight that it would not work. Donna was available and very willing to accommodate a last minute long stay. She took great care of my babies! Providing unsolicited updates and photos and was quick to respond to my inquiries. She took such good care, one of my dogs took awhile before he wanted to be by me lol. Thanks Donna!
Donna is great. Love her, Tuffy had a great time. She sent me daily pics. Awesome, thank you.
Donna is a true animal lover. Our dog is always in a great mood when we pick him up from her.
We just moved to the area and needed to find a sitter for our dog. We tried dogvacay for the first time and it was a very pleasurable experience. Donna was great and we'd highly recommend her. She took very good care of our dog, Shelby, and provided us with daily photos and updates to let us know how she was doing. It made us feel much more at ease knowing she was in good hands... We would not hesitate using Donna again, and my wife and I really appreciated the care she provided. Thank you, Donna!
Donna was great! Flexible in the arrangements and Scruffy had a great time exploring her big back yard.
Donna is great with animals. My dogs loved it. She communicated really well and updated us with pictures of our happy pets while we were away.
Our thanks go out to Donna for such a great experience for all of us. It was our first time leaving Bentley in a boarding place. Bentley stayed with Donna for four nights, and he had a great time running around in the backyard, socializing with Donna's other pets and cuddling up with Donna. It was so comforting knowing he was taken good car of, and was not put in a kennel. It is easily seen that Donna is a real animal lover ! Donna even sent pictures while Bentley was there with her.
We would highly recommend Donna to anyone who needs nurturing, loving care for their pets and want to have a worry free vacation! We would not hesitate to bring Bentley back for a stay with Donna!
Fred and Penny G
Donna did a great job with Casey! She has a large fenced in back yard,and a pool which he loved.
Donna was warm and inviting when she welcomed our pets into her home. She made our visit to the area from Texas possible due to the outdoor activities we had planned. Thanks for everything!
Audrey and Perry give Donna 4 dew claws up (cause that"s all they have)! We were concerned about finding a Vacay that would suit our large Labs, one 13-yr older gentleman and a 15-month old high energy pup. Donna and her home were the perfect answer with a large fenced yard and pool for her four legged guest! When I returned to pick up the dogs, the dogs were glad to see me but would have been content to stay another week with Donna C. Donna speaks dog and has been providing this fabulous service for many years. I am very comfortable leaving my pups with Donna and highly recommend her and her wonderful dog home!
Donna was very accommodating for my two little Chihuahuas. We were moving between states and ended up being a day late for our boarding and she was very understanding and flexible. The "boys" enjoyed their stay as she has a huge yard they were able to romp in. I will be using Donna again in the future and would recommend her without hesitation.
Both our dogs & cat seemed to have a great time with Donna. She sent us pics & kept in touch with text messages. I'll be her again next time we need a pet sitter!
2nd stay for our doggy with Donna. She is very loving and our dog is very comfortable staying with her. Would use her again. (Would use her even more if she were closer to us.)
Donna was great! Sammy loved visiting with her and she was very accommodating for my crazy schedule this weekend. She even sent us a picture of Sammy playing and settling in at her house.
This was the second time our dog Bones spent with Donna. His first boarding experience was only 24 hours long. He was excited and happy to be back at her dog friendly home when we arrived, which was very reassuring to me. We were gone 7 nights on a cruise and except for being tired after socializing with the other guests on vacation and playing in the beautiful fenced in yard, he was content to return home with us. My husband was curious on our drive home if we could take him back once in awhile just for day care, as obviously he enjoyed his visit! Thanks Donna for a great experience for all of us. We have definitely recommended DogVacay to our friends and will continue to do so. It is a great relief to know Bones has a place to visit when we need to be away from home.
Donna was great with our little Lady. She felt right at home and was happy to see her each day. I couldn't be more satisfied with the service Donna provided. I will be using her again.
Donna was a wonderful caretaker of my old dog, Rocky. Rocky is very fussy and Donna took extra special care of him. I am glad my friend told me about dog vacay.
Our Rat Terrier, Bones, appeared to feel right at home during his meet and greet/ 1 overnight stay. This was a new experience for both of us, and meant to reassure Bones that we will be back in a 'doggy' minute when we take a 7 night cruise next month. Even though he is a house pet with just 2 walks each day, Donna reported that he ran around in her beautiful fenced in dog-friendly yard with the other pack animals. He was tuckered out when we got him home, so obviously had more activity than normal. We will definitely book our next vacation with Donna through!
Donna had a great home and yard setup for our dogs to play there while we were in Tampa for the day. They were so much happier getting to sleep on her sofa and in the yard than in a cage at a kennel. She updated us on how they were doing while we were away and was very flexible to fit our schedule.I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thanks again, Donna!
Would use Donna again.
Donna was wonderful! She is a kind person who loves animals, with pets of her own. We have an older dog who had never been away from us before, and we were worried about his adjustment to our being gone for six days. It is apparent to us, now that he is home, that she took excellent care of him. He is following us around, expecting the extra special attention that she obviously gave him. Our dog needed medical attention, and she was very conscientious about that. We would highly recommend Donna to anyone who needs nurturing, loving care for their pet. Thank you, Donna!
Donna was amazing with our little puppy Zoe last week! She had one other dog with her and she made sure at our meet and greet that they got along, and they did. It was my first time leaving our puppy and she made me feel so much better by texting me updates throughout the night!
I would recommend Donna any day to take care of your dog while you are on vacation!
Thanx Donna!
