We were thrilled with the care that Dawn and her husband provided for our pup. Marshmallow has anxiety issues and it was so nice to know that she got tons of attention and socialization. She was clean and happy when I picked her up. We will definitely be using Dawn's services again soon!

Thanks so much, Amy! We loved Marshmallow so much - She's welcome anytime!!!

Dawn and her husband are really nice and flexible! Since I work long days sometimes it’s nice to just be able to drop my dog off and not worry about her. My dog olive also loves going there! She doesn’t want to leave haha.

Dawn S.
Thank you, Emily! Olive is the sweetest baby and we are looking forward to her next stay with us!

Your dog will feel right at home!

Fun, caring, dog lover with two years experience working at a busy Doggy Daycare Center, Boarding & rescue facility. As well as several years experience working as a self-employed dog walker and pet taxi service provider. Some knowledge of dog breeds including typical behavior & demeanor and also some basic training skills. I'm relatively new to Columbus and would love to continue my work with dogs. I live really close to a lovely park and ...

What Dawn would like to know about your dog

I have no breed or size preferences. But I do like to know a little about a dog's demeanor before booking. Because I take dogs from more than one family at a time, they must all be very dog friendly.
Additionally, I ask for information about health, medications, & diet.

When Dawn watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I live really close to 2 lovely parks. Iuka park is very convenient, right across the street. And Glen Echo Ravine is about a half mile away. Both are beautiful & peaceful - away from city traffic noise. These are my 2 favorite places to walk because they are secluded with a lot of trees and walking paths. I also love to take the dogs on field trips. Usually once a week, we will go to a state park or some other outdoor venue for a day of fresh air and a change of scenery!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
My goal is to make your dog feel as much at home as possible, so wherever your dog is the most comfortable is where he/she can sleep! I don't have a "no furniture" rule. I also have dog beds which are laundered between visits. Some parents do prefer their dog to be crated at night and in those cases, I have several different sized crates.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work my regular job from home & I make my own hours, so I will be with your dog his/her entire stay. Aside from indoor playtime, we typically go for 4 walks per day - 2 short walks around my back yard, and 2 long walks, usually to a nearby park.
