Carmela was wonderful. Put us at ease for our first boarding experience, and even trained Ginger to do a couple new tricks. We were very pleased.

Thank you Ted! Ginger is such a sweetie! She's going to grow up to be a wonderful family dog!

Carmela was a fabulous babysitter for my pup Jamie when I had to go out of town for two weeks. While I was initially nervous about leaving him for such a long time with someone he didn't know well, i was comforted by daily pictures of Jamie enjoying himself at the Dogpark and in the yard, playing with her own dog. When I got back, he seemed reluctant to go home! Super grateful to Carmela ...

Thank you April! I love Jamie -- he's such a doll, and he KNOWS it!

Carmela was great from beginning to end. She got back to me quickly when I first inquired, she scheduled a meet and greet for the next day, and she stayed in touch throughout my pup's stay.

Cali looked calm and happy ...

What Carmela would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences. My main concerns are those which affect the pet -- does she have separation anxiety? Health issues? Need medication? Is she fearful of people, dogs, or other creatures we may encounter?

Things I typically need to know about your pet: vaccine verification, any behavioral issues (anxiety, aggression, etc), medical needs, and exercise requirements.
