Carly and family Thank you so much for keeping our pooch Jack while we were away, He loved playing with his new friends Penny and Buddy and of coarse the kids !!! I can't wait to plan our next get away 🙂 It is great having a place to take him were I know he is safe and Happy Thank you Again 🙂
Carly and her husband Andre are both very nice. They have a large space that is very neat. All of the dogs get along very well. Carly goes the extra mile for anxious parents by regularly posting pictures of the dogs. She even sent me a video of our puppy playing on his first day there. Highly recommended.

This was the second time Colby stayed with Carly (his friend Sagan joined him too), but for an entire weekend this time rather than just a day. It was nice not having to worry about Colby at all, and the images Carly sends us throughout the stay reassure us he is having a good time. When we picked Colby (and Sagan) up on Sunday evening, they were happy to see us. When they got home, they laid down, fell asleep and didn't get up until the next morning. I haven't seen either of them that tired in a long time!
Carly and her family were great. Cookie and Cooper were well taken care of and pampered as if they were part of the family. Carly kept me informed about their day and sent photos to assure me my babies were doing great. I highly recommend Carly to anyone. My dogs came home happy and pooped from all the excitement. Thanks again, Carly!
Carly is a wonderful dog sitter. She loves all the dogs she takes care of and is really flexible with our schedule. She has a wonderful house and her children love dogs as much as she does. They all give our dogs snuggles and treat them like family. I would recommend Carly to anyone looking for a home away from home for your pet! Just an awesome experience!
Carly made sure Daphne had an awesome first experience in her home! She was so well-cared for...I couldn't be happier with her care! I would highly recommend Carly to anyone who loves their dog as much as I do!
Carly and her whole family were amazing with my 3 large breed puppies. ( 2 labs and a Saint Bernard) she went above and beyond my expectations for the boarding. She treated them like her own and gave them so much extra attention, care, and love that I would recommend her services for anyones short term or long term needs. She had my pups 11 days and I did not worry one bit. She even sent me pics and updates while on vacation (which I appreciated greatly) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you.! We will be using her services again. 🙂 Thanks- The Smith Family
I was very impressed with both Carly and her husband Andre, how they both are so involved in the care of the dogs. I was hesitant to leave my pup, since I had only had him just over a month. He is 6 months old and we were still adjusting as I have another dog as well. Ziggy was a bit shy at the first visit, but when I dropped him off for his stay, he felt a bit more comfortable. Carly was great to keep me posted of how Ziggy was doing. She sent pictures, text messages and videos, which put my mind at ease. Ziggy was excited to see me and my other dog and they both were asleep right beside after we got home! I highly recommend Carly and her family for dog sitting. She is very knowledgeable and certainly helps the humans feel comfortable leaving their dogs.
Carly is fantastic!! I have 2 dogs one of which is a larger dog and when looking I could not find a place that would babysit them without putting them in a crate or kennel or let them be together. Carly did so much more than that! She took my boys in to her home like they were family! My dogs felt right at home with her family, they got daily walks, a big yard to run around in, other dogs to play with and she even has an area gated off for them to go eat and be alone when they want a little quiet time to them selves. Just a great place I would never take my dogs anywhere else!
Carly was fabulous as always!!!! Cooper has suck fun with her and her family that I think the dog is getting his own special kind of vacation.
I really appreciate Carly's flexibility and willingness to work with Lily. She keeps in contact with me, as needed, and makes sure that I feel comfortable about Lily's situation, without compromising the care she gives her other visitors. I highly recommend her and know that I will go to her again!
I am so glad I found Carly on the Dog Vacay site. All of the previous reviews for Carly made it easy to choose Carly. From the beginning Carly was great with our two little dogs. She wasn't concerned about Spike's barking and was confident they would get along fine with the other dogs. Because of her confidence, I felt good about leaving my dogs with her. I met her family on the initial meeting. I was so glad to see how good her kids and her husband were with the dogs. They all clearly love dogs. I wanted to find a place where my dogs were part of a family environment, similar to home, and that's exactly what I found with Carly and her family. Thank you Carly for taking my dogs on your birthday weekend. It was much appreciated. I look forward to using your service again for our next vacation.
Carly did such an amazing job with my dog. I had never had to board my dog before and I was nervous. I appreciated Carly's caring and loving attitude with all her "guests". I will recommend her to all my friends and definitely leave my little Coco with her again.
We were visiting our granddaughter in the Auburn, Washington area and needed someone to care for our 14-1/2 year old toy poodle during the day while we visited the sites of Seattle since the weather was unusually warm. I stumbled onto the Dogvacay website while surfing around for doggie daycare and after talking with Carly on the phone and reading reviews from others I felt quite comfortable leaving my "baby" with her. She has gone to great lengths to make sure her yard and house provide a secure environment for her guests. Carly's location near the I-5 freeway made it very convenient to drop off our dog en route to Seattle from Auburn. It couldn't have been more convenient and Carly was so very accommodating of our schedule allowing us to leave our dog with her late into the evening so we could watch the sunset from the Space Needle. I would have no hesitation in leaving my dog with her in the future. Thank you, Carly, for providing this service and taking such good care of Abby.
We love Carly and her family and our dogs Halo and Kona spend time at her house on a regular basis. She is super and they love her as we do! She takes special care to make sure all the dogs are comfortable and tends to their needs.
Carly was great! She is warm and affectionate and it was obvious that our four-year old Pomeranian, Oakley, immediately felt comfortable and right at home. She is also very knowledgeable in terms of helpful routines, good health practices, correcting undesirable behaviors, etc. I would definitely recommend Carly!
Jade has found her favorite vacation spot....Carly's place!!!!!! I will continue to take my Jade to Carly every time I travel. Once again I left town and had no question or worry about the how my dog would be taken care of while I was away. I know Jade is happy and treated like a part of the family when she visits Carly's and that is the piece of mind you can't put a price on!...Not to mention, my daughter and I love to visit the resident dogs each time we drop Jade off too, they are so cute!!!! Thank you Carly for taking care of our Jade once again, we are making reservations again real soon for her next stay :-).
Carly is fabulous! She is a natural with dogs. We were fortunate to find her while visiting Seattle on vacation as we were unable to bring our little guy into the water park with us. Carly and her husband (and their own family, including their family of dogs and other canine guests) took such great care of our little guy. They welcomed him into their home and he fit right in! I would highly recommend Carly if you are in need of a loving and caring pet sitter!
We really feel comfortable leaving our dog with Carly and her family. They take wonderful care of all the dogs and help them feel at home while you are away. Carly takes a bunch of photos and sends them to you or posts them on Facebook so you know your pup is in good hands.
My experience with Carly and DogVacay was absolutely wonderful! The website makes it easy to locate and research different doggy daycare hosts. They also have a support line that quickly answered all my questions with a real actual person and helped me when, at the last minute, I couldn't quite find the location. We needed a last minute dog sitter for our 35lb mutt Rambo and Carly provided a perfect solution to our problem. The house and yard were beautiful and well kept. Carly and her family were very warm, helpful, and very knowledgeable about pet care. She is completely prepared to help dogs feel safe and welcome in a new environment as well as equipped to handle any obstacles that may occur.... like excessive territory marking! I felt very comfortable leaving Rambo there, and when we picked him up he was almost sad to leave the new friends he made. Thanks Carly!
We had no worries in leaving our Roxy with Carly. She clearly loves animals and is very friendly. We felt extremely comfortable in leaving our pup with her and her family. She even posted pics online so that we could see how our Roxy was doing during her stay. She’s awesome, we recommend Carly and will book with her again.
Carly was great! Already booked her for another weekend. She was super friendly and knowledgeable (she actually noticed something wrong with Rusty that I hadn't even seen) and her house is amazing for dogs.
Carly provided the extra time and support to make sure I was comfortable leaving Blaise overnight for the first time. The grooming appointment was a wonderful bonus. She's beautiful and all that nasty undercoat is gone. Blaise was comfortable, well cared for and given the time and attention needed. I came home to a dog just happy to settle back into her everyday routine. Perfect.
I can't imagine any pup not feeling immediately at home! We feel so fortunate to have found a "home away from home" for our Golden!
Our Dogs had a great time. I think they were on vacation while we were on vacation. Thanks for taking care of our two dogs and making us feel at peace that our pets were happy and loved.
Thank you for taking good care of the dogs. We are grateful to have met you. Not many people are comfortable taking care of large dogs. Thanks for sending the photo's. It does give you reassurance that everything is going well.
We were very pleased with Carly and her doggy services. Had a good doggy interview a couple days before we left. We can see she is a pack leader and knows how to take control of her space with the dogs. We were able to take a vacation without being concerned about our dogs even the older one with extra care needs. We will be coming back here again.
Such a good experience. I needed to leave town last minute and really early in the morning. Carly agreed to pick up my pup from my house and took care of her overnight. Of course I was worried as this was my first time leaving my dog overnight but Carly sent me photos and videos when she picked her up. Such a relief!! Thanks Carly!
Roxy had another fun visit at Carly's. She came home exhausted and slept for 2 days!!!! Thanks for being able to take her on such short notice.
Our experience with Carly and her family has been excellent. My little beagle Byron is pretty shy when it comes to daycare, and she understood that he needed a little time to warm up to the new people, place, and other dogs. As such, she went out of her way to make him comfortable and accepted with the new group, giving him plenty of personal attention and love. He loves his daycare, more so than any other we have tried, and for once I don't feel like I have to worry about how he's doing, both physically and emotionally. I would recommend Carly to anyone looking for a great experience for their dogs!
Our dog had so much fun playing with all the other dogs. I would definitely go back! She came back tired and ready for bed and she seemed disappointed that she had to leave so soon.
Carly and her family are AMAZING!!!! My german shephard goes there everyday and on occasions has been boarded over night. I am overly protective of my dog and wont even leave her with my own family...BUT Carly and her family are so good with my dog that I dont even worry for a minute. It really feels like she has two familys (one with me and one at Carly's house). She gets to play all day with other dogs, can go out in the fresh air (her husband even takes her jogging), the kids play with her and when I pick her up she is happy and exhausted from the day of fun. There is no place else on this earth that I would rather take my dog. Seriously it is the best place for your dog to spend the day and or night.
Things we like about taking Stella, our energetic, clingy German shorthaired pointer, to Carly's: --Stella wags when she knows we're going to Carly's house and always comes home happy and tired. This reassures us that our dog is with a human and other dogs she enjoys and respects! --Carly is good at “reading” dogs and we feel she is in control of all under her care. She’s noticed that Stella likes to cuddle and she (or her kids!) are always happy to provide a lap and lots of love. --We like that Stella spends the day socializing and having supervised, positive interactions with other dogs. Since we started sending her to Carly’s for daycare one day a week, we have seen improvements in Stella’s confidence when interacting with new dogs at the dog park! --Carly has been very flexible and accommodating for our changing schedules and has even on occasion accommodated last minute bookings or cancellations. Additionally, she is always prompt when replying to DogVacay or text messages.
My family consists of myself, my husband, my 2 sons and my 2 female dogs. We recently moved to WA from all our family and friends in CO. This was a big problem when we decided to take an 8 day vacation to Disneyland. We had nobody to watch our 'girls.' I found Carly on the dogvacay site, and set up a meet and greet. My dogs are not use to being around other dogs, but the meeting went very well. So we left the girls with Carly, and we could not be happier! Her house is set up great for all the dogs. She and her family are SO amazing with them! Carly is very kind and gentle, and gave them the love and care I would. One of my dogs has an eye condition that requires daily maintenance. Carly did an amazing job with this as well. She sent pics and updates while we were on vacation letting us know they were happy and well. I cannot stress how great it was to know that my girls were in such good hands while we were away! I will definitely be using Carly again :).
Carly very courageously took my Rottweiler AND two very needy Boston Terriers for an over night stay. The Rott is a 110 lb puppy with tons of energy, the female boston suffers from separation anxiety and the male boston has a whole list of issues, not to mention the fact that he had just had surgery to remove a fatty tumor. They couldn't have been in any better hands! I felt totally comfortable that all three would be well cared for and loved! THANK YOU!
Carly was so great, accomodating us at the last minute!! We felt very comfortable leaving Sammy in her great care. We will definitely use her again.
Carly is absolutely (P)awesome! I don't know how she juggles a family and a houseful of dogs. I would go nuts. Her whole family must be awesome. Our dogs even participated in "show and tell" at her kids' elementary school on their last visit. We always get pictures and updates from Carly while we are away. Our large goldendoodle and giant Irish Wolfhound have a home away from home with Carly.
Sherman had a blast and was a very tired puppy.
Our Midas returned home to us happy, healthy, smiling, and obviously loved during our time away. We've finally found his home away from home on the occasions he can't travel with us!
Carly and her family are the best! They are very considerate and welcoming to the dogs! This was my Zorro's first time to be with Carly, however, my Ziggy's second time. Zorro is very temperamental and I was a bit nervous about leaving him. He did great with the family! Carly knew to give him space and he came around in a couple of hours! He also needed supplements and Carly was great about making sure he received them. I highly recommend Carly and her family for taking care of your dogs. Her home is adapted for dogs and her backyard is large enough to provide the dogs some space! The dogs are given a home atmosphere just like at their own home! Thank you Carly and family for all you do!
As always, Carly did an amazing job watching my dog while I was on vacation. He had lots of fun playing and running around with the other dogs.
