Dawn’s Lucky Dogs – Client Testimonials

Dawn provided outstanding dog sitting services in her home for our Bichon Frise for 6 days in May, 2016

Dawn is a lifesaver! We call her the “Dog Nanny!”

We have a 15.5 year old Bichon Frise who is very demanding because of her age–fussy eater, sleeper and a little anxious in new environments — just like a baby! Needless to say we were VERY CONCERNED, but had to make a trip to the midwest on short notice.

Dawn suggested we all meet before our trip so she could get to know our dog — they hit it off instantly and we felt very comfortable knowing she would be in a lovely, clean home with a beautiful huge backyard that is completely fenced in. She asked us to complete a form to provide her with with our dog’s vet, medication schedule and several contact numbers just in case anything happened where she might need emergency care. We were very impressed with her professionalism and eager-to-please, outgoing personality.

From the minute I dropped our dog off at her home, I knew she would be fine and I could relax and enjoy my trip. Our dog has a very detailed medication schedule and needs to go outside often because her diuretic meds. Dawn called us a few hours after we left to let us know that she was doing well and even sent us a photo of the two of them. Each day and evening she sent us an update. She handled her food, medications and need for lots of attention extremely well. She slept in her room in the bed we brought to her home and settled in easily.

I would truly recommend Dawn for any dog sitting needs you may have–whether for a couple of days or several weeks. A friend recommended her and she leaves her dogs with her for two weeks and couldn’t say enough about her. Leaving an elderly dog was a little scary for us,but I knew it we had the best possible dog sitter in Connecticut and we couldn’t have been more pleased!Our dog came home happy and healthy — we will certainly use Dawn again!

Dawn is awesome! I brought my dog (Chihuahua, Jack Russel, Pug mix) to her for 9 nights. He was in doggie heaven! Dawn’s communication was outstanding from the first e-mail via Angie’s List to the day I picked up my dog. She is a true dog lover and really goes the extra mile for her guests. While I was away, she sent pictures and updates so I knew how my dog was doing. It was wonderful knowing I had nothing to worry about and my dog was in good hands. She has a huge fenced in yard and caters to her dog and the dogs she is pet sitting. She even taught my dog the “come” and “sit” commands while he was there! She is a very friendly, outgoing person and easy to work with. I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough!!! Thanks Dawn!

Dawn provided a home and companionship to our Coco while we were away! As a matter of fact, Coco was in no particular hurry to leave when we came to pick her up!! We will absolutely be asking Dawn to watch our furry daughter again.

Chloe is a mommas girl and my baby so I hate leaving her anywhere. To ease my anxiety we met dawn ahead of time at her home where Chloe would stay. She was great with her and the home was very dog friendly. When I picked Chloe up after 5 days she was happy and her coat was glowing from dawn taking the extra time to brush her and make her pretty. I will absolutely use dawn again!
