About Yvonne

39 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
IF MY CALENDAR SAYS FULL/UNABLE TO BOOK.....PLEASE CONTACT ME!
Welcome to Yvonne’s Canine Castle, and that is not a misnomer because here, all of my canine guests are treated like royalty.
I am a long time animal lover. My normal habitat includes two dogs, one cat and three birds, and they are all very spoiled.
Our labs love to play Frisbee in our big back yard and they have established spirited rapport with their new canine companions. Their favorite activity is swimming in our large pool and they quickly introduce new friends to their water sports…if the guests’ humans allow. If not, we can easily block it off.
When you leave your pets in my care, you can be assured they will get the utmost care and attention, and most of all, a lot of loving.
During 2016, I had the privilege of welcoming 36 different dogs and nearly two-thirds of them were repeat guests. And I am very proud of the various complimentary postings:
“Another great visit at Colby’s second home. He always comes back happy and tired from lots of playing. I am finally able to travel without feeling guilty as a know Colby is well taken care of.”
…Cameron H.
“Yvonne and her husband Mike have a wonderful home and took excellent care of our baby Marcie who loved her time playing with Milo and Cocoa. We received pictures and texts while we were away letting us know what our Marcia was up to and how things were going so I know she was well cared for.” …Janice E.
“We were very pleased with the service that Yvonne provided for us and our Dustin. Great environment and a high-level of customer service (i.e. pictures and updates via email). We highly recommend Yvonne and we will be using her again in the near future.” …Connie S.
“Our bichon frise had a fantastic ‘first stay’ at Yvonne’s Canine Castle. Our little princess enjoyed interacting with the sweet and gentle resident pets, lounging by the pool, and being completely doted on and spoiled during her stay. I highly recommend Yvonne’s Canine Castle.” …Deborah F.
“Yvonne was wonderful, Snickers quickly feel in love with her and I figured out why…he was totally spoiled while staying with her.”
…Sarah M.
“Amazing. A home away from home for my dog. Yvonne sent pictures of how Brandi as doing and I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pup was having one of her own.” …Jamie W.
Most of my human clients are from the local or Florida area. But, in January, we welcomed two new canine guests from the midwestern U.S. whose humans were getting married here, and they adapted comfortably with our habitat.
Whether it’s a vacation trip, visit with loved ones, a cruise, or just a long weekend away, let me care for your loved ones for the best pet service you can get.

Our two dogs stayed with Yvonne for the weekend of our wedding and loved it. One is a 2.5 year old very high energy soft coated wheaten terrier that lives to run. The other is 10.5 year old miniature poodle/bichon frise that likes to lay around more like a cat. They both seemed to be very happy and slept the whole way home.
Yvonne was kind and accommodating and sent pictures every day. I would not hesitate to recommend her and our dogs will stay there next time we need someone in the area.

Our dog Ellie had a great time with Yvonne! Drop off and pick up very smooth. Loved getting text with updates and pictures of Ellie during her stay. Yvonne was very accommodating as we were delayed by winter weather and had to pick up later than planned.

I highly recommend! Extremely dog-friendly home, well loved and taken care of, and lots of pics and updates. Will definitely use in future!
This is the most wonderful place to board your beloved pet. My little girl loves it!
Another great visit, Colby's second home. He always comes back happy and tired from lots of playing.
Yvonne was great! She took excellent care of Brady and sent me pictures and updates everyday. Brady came home happy, healthy, and exhausted so I know he really enjoyed himself. Highly recommend Yvonne! She was absolutely wonderful!
Finally able to travel without feeling guilty, I know Colby is well taken care of!! Yvonne has a very pet friendly home, and a huge backyard for playtime and burning off extra energy. Got picture updates to feel at ease with leaving our boy with someone, even one of him sleeping in bed with them(he loves beds more then the floor). I would totally recommend this service, I've already booked our next stay!!

Yvonne and her husband Mike have a wonderful home and take excellent care of our baby Marcie. Marcie loved her time there playing with Milo and Cocoa. We received several pictures and texts while we were away letting us know what our Marcie was up to and how things were going. I know she was well cared for and Yvonne and Mike even let her sleep with them in their bed so she felt like she was at home with us. We will definitely bring Marcie back to them whenever she needs another doggie vacay.

Once again, Yvonne did not disappoint! Po really enjoyed his time with her, her husband and critters. It is reassuring to know that Po interacts well with all of the pets in Yvonne's care.
The perfect place for my lab when we go out of town. Mocha enjoyed herself with Yvonne's labs. Great experience. Will use her exclusively. Don G.
Ruger loved staying at Yvonne's! He had an awesome time!!
Our yellow lab had a great experience at Yvonne's. He was immediately comfortable in the home environment and with the resident pups. He even ate (which he usually will not do away from home). We thought he'd come home exhausted from the stress of being away from his family, but he seemed well rested and very calm. We will definitely call Yvonne again!

Yvonne was wonderful. Exceeded my expections and we will use her services again. Lucy already misses her vacay with Cocoa and Milo. Lucy was very relaxed when we picked her up. Yvonne sent pictures and updates daily and gave us a picture magnet of Lucy's stay. Please don't hesitate to use Yvonne's for your pets services.

Our dog was calm and relaxed when we collected her from Yvonne. We received photos of her every day that we were away. A great experience and she will be back to stay with Yvonne.
Excellent
We were very pleased with the service that Yvonne provided for us and our Dustin. Great environment and high level of customer service (i.e. pictures and updates send via e-mail).

We highly recommend Yvonne if you need to board your pet. We will be using her again in the near future.

Wonderful! My dog Winnie had a great time!
This review relates to both visits, I extended the first.
Yvonne's care of my Po was, once again, exemplary! This time was very difficult for me as the reason for my departure was the passing of my father. Knowing that Po was receiving the best care made it easier for me to go through this experience without fear that he did not have all of his needs met. I will definitely be asking for Yvonne's help again whenever I must stay away for more than a day.
Thanks so much for making this a great experience for Po (and me)!

Our bichon frise had a fantastic "first stay" at Yvonne's Canine Castle. Yvonne and her husband Mike obviously love dogs (and pets of all kinds). They heap love and attention on their own pets as well as their guest pets. Our little princess enjoyed interacting with the sweet and gentle resident pets, lounging by the pool, and being completely doted on and spoiled during her stay. We loved the fact that Yvonne periodically sends texts with photo updates. I highly recommend Yvonne's Pet Castle.

Thank you so much Yvonne! My 3 labs had such a wonderful time playing in your big back yard and swimming in your pool. They were so happy and tired when I picked them up and collapsed when they got home. They were even tired the next day which tells me they got lots of special attention!! In addition, thank you for the take-home pictures of them swimming and chilling in the pool. They will definitely be back for more love and attention.

This was absolutely the BEST care I have received for my sight-disabled dog, Po. Yvonne was so attentive, sending pictures and messages every day. This was the first time that he was not cared for in my home, so I was very concerned. Yvonne and her husband and pet friends quickly alleviated my fears so that my trip away from home was not tainted by this concern. I plan to ask Yvonne for her help within the month.

My puppy Ruger received the best care on his Vacay! Great retreat for dogs that love other dogs, cats, birds, people, pools, awesome yards, etc! He got exposed to new things, and I appreciated that since there is much he hasn't seen or experienced yet at almost 7 months. So, for me, it was a wise decision. Everyone loves Ruger and is happy to watch him, but he deserved a special Vacay while I was away for 3 days.
I also appreciate how much attention Yvonne pays to every pet. They are always well supervised which is very important to me. She really is amazing.

My Savi had the best time staying with Yvonne. She has a soul mate in their dog Cocoa. Yvonne was very accommodating of our return schedule for picking up our best friend. I highly recommend Yvonne's Canine Castle.
So great!!!! Our flight got in late (midnight!!) and she met us at our hotel for pickup. She sent us regular updates with photos. When we had to extend the stay she happily accommodated our needs and offered to bring Willis to our new home so we could continue unpacking. Highly recommend and will definitely book with Yvonne again!!!! 5 stars!!!

Yvonne was wonderful! Snickers quickly fell in love with her and I figured out why... he was totally spoiled while staying with her. Definitely recommend and will use again!
Thank you Yvonne for taking such good care of Layla while we were on vacation. The pictures you sent always put a smile on our faces and eased our hearts that she was in a good, safe place.
Your canine taxi service was a life saver!

Thank you Yvonne @ Yvonne's Canine Castle
We look forward to using your services again in the future

Yvonne made our plans to leave for a quick trip so easy! While we were gone she sent status updates so we knew our furbabies were happy. In our opinion, she went above and beyond for us. I just booked her again. As long as she is available, we will always use her services. Thank you so much Yvonne!!

This is our second time that our dog stayed with Yvonne and her husband Mike, they are AMAZING!!!!! She sent frequent updates via text with pictures, which was great for a concerned dog owner of an older dog. Our dog was HAPPY, Stress-free and rested when we picked him up after a 10 day stay. I will use them again and again and would highly recommend them!!!

This is my second time leaving my two labs with Yvonne. They love staying with her and playing with her dogs! Her house is super clean and she even washes my dogs' bedding before sending it back home with me. Yvonne and her husband are extremely nice people and it is obvious they love dogs.

Amazing!! A home a way from home for my dog. Yvonne is wonderful!!! I was sent picture updates of how Brandi was doing and was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pup was having one of her own!!! Thank you again Yvonne!!!!
Yvonne (and her husband Mike), were gracious, friendly, and definitely love animals. My canine girlfriend was welcomed into a safe and varied environment. She enjoyed sunning in the yard, tug-of-war with the resident dogs, and lounging around in the house. Her dogs welcomed my little girl into their pack without reservation. Yvonne kept me updated with notes and precious photos throughout the stay. I definitely recommend Yvonne's Canine Castle as a superior place to board your beloved pet!

Yvonne and Mike are wonderful along with their sweet labs Milo and Cocoa. I was very nervous since this was my first time leaving our dog but they were so understanding and sent tons of pictures throughout the day to help ease MY stress. The dog was just fine! They have a huge back yard and nice pool, Your pet can swim (supervised of course) with your permission. I can't say enough how relaxed they made me feel about leaving my little guy there.

Yvonne was very polite and professional. She worked with me to provide the level of care for my dogs I wanted when I needed it. Being a first time customer of Yvonne's Canine Castle I would highly recommend her. She also provided daily updates with pics of my dogs during their vacay.

Thanks Yvonne.

Yvonne was wonderful with our dog! This was the first time we ever used a petsitter and Yvonne and her husband were amazing. She sent several pictures and updates on our dog. We felt very comfortable knowing our older dog was in her care. We would definitely use her again and recommend Yvonne to care for your pet.
