About Diane

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been a dog obedience trainer and Training Director of a local Dog Rescue Club for the past 37 years. Six of my dogs have earned obedience titles over the years, two Dobermans and four Shelties. I am a stay at home Mom who will give continuous care and attention to your pet. I will make them a welcomed guest in my home. We walk in the mornings and again in the evening plus they have access to the fenced back yard frequently throughout the day. I generally try to take only small dogs and am not willing to take guest dogs back who do not get along with my two Shelties or any other guest dogs; or those that are not totally housebroken.

Diane is the only pet sitter I trust my baby Toto to.
I would give Diane ten stars if there was a ten star rating. Excellent loving, friendly care. Toto gets so excited when we pull up to Diane's house; I keep thinking that Toto won't want to go home when I come to pick her up at the end of her visit.
Thanks Diane.

This is my second visit for my baby, Toto, to stay with Diane. I could write a volume here about the extraordinary care that Toto received from Diane, but I'll try to be brief:
Most importantly, Diane cared for Toto like I would, which is saying a whole lot because I am recently retired and Toto gets 24/7 love & attention from me at home - it's just Toto and I - I'm an empty nester. Diane followed my detailed instructions perfectly regarding her schedule and food, and she sent photos & videos so that when I saw her playing with that little butt up in the air, making her play-with-me sound, tail wagging, with another dog (she craves being with other people and dogs, playing), I cried because I knew she was having a good time, even away from me.
Also, Diane's set up is that she is home and she has a nice medium area, fenced in, for the dogs to go out and play. Toto (terrier mix) loves & needs this. She (Diane) takes in and is strict that the dogs are getting along and friendly with each other. She has trained dogs for years. Her house is spotless and there is a friendly atmosphere. Where are you gonna get all that?
There is not one thing that I would change or want that Diane doesn't provide when I have to board my precious best friend. Diane treated my dog like I do, and Toto, of course, will be staying with Diane again. This was my second time with Diane, Toto's second mother, "my kid's best camp."
I know I said I would be brief, but it's just impossible.

Diane is a sweet person who truly cares for our dogs. She willingly took one of our pups to the vet when needed. Her home is spotless and she has a beautiful backyard where the dogs run and play. We are very happy when she can look after our dogs. Thank you Diane.

Diane is very nice and you can tell that she is a dog lover. She was very accommodating with pick up and drop off times and Spot really enjoyed his time with her.
Diane was great and very accommodating with pick up and drop off times! Spot enjoyed his time with her.
Scruffy and Lucy have stayed with Diane a few times now and we couldn't be more satisfied. We find her very reliable and feel we can relax while they're in her care.
I interviewed several pet sitters before I chose Diane to babysit my baby for a week long vacation where I could not take my girl with me. I knew right away when Toto and I went inside Diane's spotless, dog friendly house with the nice dog play area yard, that this was the real deal. Toto went with me.
Since it's just my baby girl and I at home (empty nest now), I was super selective for who I entrusted my dog's care to. I was impressed with Diane's experience with many breeds and sizes of dogs, as well as her years of experience & training with canines.
I needed someone who would give my bright and shining star, the affection, exercise, and appropriate discipline that Toto would need while I was away from her for the first time for a whole week.
Diane did not disappoint on any of those levels. I wish Diane could come home with me and my "perfect dog." Because it is true: "the perfect dog is the one that's next to you."
Thank you, Diane, for being Toto's Mommy while I was away for what seemed like an eternity. It gives me a lot of security to know that I can bring Toto to you should I ever need a pet sitter in the future.

Absolutely great again. Thank you Diane. Pam and Andy
So glad we found Dog Vacay which led us to Diane. We are new to the area and didn't know anyone who could look after our dogs when we took a short trip. Diane is a very warm and caring person. Her home is spotless and she has a lovely big yard where our dogs could play. We felt very comfortable with her and would recommend her highly. She sent us pictures, which were fun to see. We will return for another visit. Thank you Diane.

Diane is a great host and very professional. I am SO glad I found her. She runs a tight ship and I totally trust my girl with her. I never worry when I am away.
I am SO glad that I found Diane. I can't imagine leaving my girl in a typical kennel. She got the special attention that ALL dogs love in a home environment. Her place is clean, the yard is spacious, she sent me pix or video every day and assured me Kiwi was a happy camper. Thank you Diane!

Diane is a jewel. She is very welcoming and has a lovely environment for your pup's home away from home.
I first met Diane by a Meet-n-Greet. I read her profile and thought she would be the one I was looking for to watch my dog. Diane was very welcoming and asked alot of questions, as I did. I felt very comfortable with her. She has alot of knowledge in training and supervision of dogs. After booking two DogVacay reservations I can say I'm very pleased with the services she has provided. My dog is much more at ease now and gets plenty of exercise and attention.She was also very accommodating when I called to say I was running late too. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks Diane for knowing your taking the best care for my dog as I would.

Diane was amazing! Finn had an absolute blast and fit into her home well.

She even went above and beyond and even helped out with some training techniques and gave us some great advice.

Diane did a fantastic job taking care of Finn and we will certainly go back to her in the future.

We can't thank you enough!!

Diane is a very knowledgeable dog owner and caregiver of the animals in her home. She clearly loves dogs and provides the perfect environment for them to thrive. I was completely at ease to know that my dog, Lucky, was in her care while I was away. I recommend her highly!

Diane and Tim were so great. They are such a sweet couple I felt instantly secure with my decision to use them. They have 3 awesome dogs themselves and their was 4 other well behaved dogs there. The in door area is great and the outdoor play yard and obstacle course made me jealous and we were headed for the Keys. Our dog slept for two days after she came back. She was excited to see us, but also didn't want to leave. They also sent the cutest pictures and one of them was down right professional and artsy. We are having it blown up. Highly highly recommend!!

Samson had a great time and loved all of the toys!! Great experience :)
This was our second time booking with Diane. She is a very genuine and caring person. She took great care of Samson for 2 weekends in a row. We plan to continue to use her services. She is very detail-oriented and experienced with animals. We plan to train our dog with the 6 week classes she suggested for us. Would highly recommend:)
