About Colleen

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had dog family members all my life. All of them rescue dogs. From a shelter dog in Alaska to street dogs in Bali - wherever I have lived, I have found great dogs to call family.

We are a very loving household with a fully fenced back yard with grass, covered concrete patio, and side yards with great dirt to explore - truly a dog's paradise. We live on a safe cul-de-sac with a lot of kids and pets and you'll find I'm very easy going, I have two young boys and a young dog of our own, so cleaning the floors is just a regular thing and accidents simply happen. Our home is a single story with wood floors, rugs and AC. I work from home so your pet will always have at least me and our dog Violet to keep them company. We do allow pets on the furniture, but if you have routines your prefer, of course we will honor those.

I live in the great Village Park community, which has sidewalks, parks and a fenced dog park we visit regularly. My boys (elementary school age) are respectful and loving, they adore animals and are very attentive to them. Our dog, Violet, LOVES all dogs and is quite submissive. She happily shares her family, space, and toys, and is not food motivated, nor aggressive AT ALL. Violet will do her best to get other dogs to play with her, but has had to accept that some will not, and she handles it well. We love dogs of all size and play appropriately with each. Our last family dog was a 110 lb black lab (I still miss her terribly) and we often host Grandma's 10 lb "babies".

Pets must be dog and kid friendly.

We can text you pictures and even FaceTime if you're having separation anxiety. You can follow your pup's visit with us on Instagram @FriendsofViolet
and rest assured, your family member will be treated like one of our own.

*If you would prefer that we do not have other guests at the same time as your dog(s) we will see if we can accommodate you, please request a custom quote with your dates.

*Rates are loosely based on a 24 hour period. If you need an early drop off or late pick up, please let me know and I will send you a custom quote. I am very reasonable in accommodating your schedule/plans and will be as flexible as possible.

If you have any questions, I'm happy to field them for you! Thank you!

Colleen was AMAZING! Our dogs seemed to feel right at home for their week stay. Our dogs are our children so it is so nice that we can leave them in such great hands when we do decide to go on a vacation! We will be using Colleen 100% for our future vacations and trips away.

First time using DogVacay. A very positive experience with Colleen. Easy drop-off and pick-up, great communication and a happy puppy!
Coleen was the best!! She is so sweet and you know she is a dog lover from the minute you meet her. My dogs knew it too. They were happy to be left with her, happy while there, and exhausted when they got home because of how much fun they had. Her house was perfect. It is clean and dog friendly. My dogs have found a second home and look forward to returning for their next vacation.
