Diana has an amazing yard for the dogs that she cares for. She is kind and considerate and Kaiser loved his visit. He tested nearly every bed in the house and enjoyed romping in the beautiful yard with the other animals. Will book again!

Diana is wonderful with our pup. It’s the happiest I’ve seen her arriving, during, or leaving a daycare or sitter. We get photo updates of Melon playing, relaxing, and chewing on sticks. It’s a small business, meaning a lot of personalized attention per dog, and a huge fenced yard that the dogs love. Diana’s systems for receiving and handing off the dogs are excellent and controlled. I’d recommend Wag-n-Smile to everyone who’s lucky enough to get on the list.
Susan R. Nov 14, 2022
Wonderful experience with Diana! Detailed and frequent communications helped put us at ease while away. Nugget is relaxed and happy at home after her very first extended stay. Will gladly use Diana again!
Lunn B. Feb 22, 2022
Diana was so good with my fearful dog. She is very patient and helped my dog feel safe which made me feel good about leaving my dog with her.
Gloria Z. Jan 21, 2022
Diana catered to our dog’s needs and helped socialize her to other dogs at her place. I was really impressed with how much knowledge of dog behavior she had. My dog was made to feel at home and always had options for how much interactions she wanted. Every night I would receive pictures and updates which helped with my worrying. I would highly recommend Diana again and plan to continue using Diana’s services.
Mark A. Aug 17, 2021
Diana is a sweet and caring animal lover. She has a perfect yard for your dog to romp around and have fun with other dog friendly 4 legged pals. Bandit stayed for a week and, all though he is a house dog, he got to see what a dog's life could be outside. I will be using her services again.

If you're looking for a sitter, look no further – Diana is absolutely wonderful! It's such a great feeling knowing that Cody is safe and happy while I'm away. The daily updates she sends are the best! I love knowing that my dog is having just as much fun on his vacation as I am. :)
Jon P. Jun 21, 2021
Diana did an excellent job caring for our dog while we were on a 1 week vacation. Daily updates with many photos. I would definitely book again, very professional service.
Kristin G. May 3, 2021
Our dog Penny enjoyed daycare with Diana and her pups, and Diana did an extraordinary job making Penny (and me by extension!) feel comfortable. Penny can be anxious and slow to warm up, which Diana handled with such care. She is a true pro and genuine dog lover. We trust her completely with our girl.
Lindsay S. Mar 7, 2021
Diana is absolutely AMAZING! I don’t have words to express how grateful I am to have found her service. Diana kept 2 of my 3 dogs, one with anxiety and the other with very poor vision/blindness. The dogs did phenomenal in her care! I received pictures and updates daily. Will not be leaving my dogs with anyone else. She is a true blessing.
Kim N. Feb 19, 2021
Diana is AMAZING!!! Our little Zoe gets to stay with Diana and play with her other furry friends often and it seems she loves it! She comes home in a good mood and exhausted from all the playing. We've seen our 17-yr old play like a pup again, chasing other dogs in the large yard. Brings us much joy, especially while we've been away. We love getting the pictures...Zoe looks very happy. We will be scheduling playdates with Diana again and again in the future!!
Jennifer E. Nov 29, 2020
Diana is a professional. Our 75 pound Labrador adores her, and he always comes home better behaved than we left him. She has a huge fenced-in yard, exercises the animals several hours daily, and sends photos every night. Can't recommend highly enough!
Lucia C. Nov 28, 2020
My dog has stayed with Diana before when she lived in Eugene; we decided it was worth driving to Corvallis because Diana is very caring and knowledgeable. Rocco always comes back better behaved when we pick him up from Diana’s. We also like the fact that she only takes 2 dogs at a time and she has plenty of space for the dogs to exercise outside, I highly recommend Diana .
Britt B. Nov 25, 2020
I love knowing that my dog is getting tons of exercise and attention while he stays here. The large fenced in yard, hours of playtime, and in-home care makes boarding here a vacation for my dog. Diana is great about updating with photos throughout the boarding. The last time I boarded my dog for a long weekend here, he slept for three days straight, he was completely tired out!
Sophie C. Aug 17, 2020
Diana was an angel! I was very nervous to board my boy, because we had always had family watch him. She made the weekend easy, painless, and relaxing—we got the most adorable picture updates! I would recommend her to anyone. I cannot say enough good things about our experience!
Heather T. Aug 11, 2020
Diana is wonderful and knowledgeable. She gave me updates on my dog throughout the day. She made me feel very confident that my boy was in good hands.
William P. Aug 2, 2020
Diana kept me updated with texts and pictures, and Lily fit right in with Jenna, Tater, and Tigger. Excellent experience, I highly recommend Diana as a dog boarder!
Sean B. Feb 18, 2020
Exceeded expectations. I was quite comfortable leaving my family with her.
Jennifer E. Dec 26, 2019
Best dog sitter ever. Diana is such a kind and experienced caretaker. She truly loves dogs and it shows. My dogs have the best time with Diana and her family. I have total peace of mind when my pups are with her.
Janelle F. Nov 18, 2019
Diana is a wonderful sitter. We’ve stayed many times with her now, and my dog Cody just loves her. She takes such good care of the him! She sends great updates each day too, so I have extra peace of mind knowing my dog is having a fun vacation while I’m away.
Bill H. Oct 14, 2019
Extra Loving Care !!
Janis & Jack P. Oct 11, 2019
What's not to love? Diana was wonderful with our shy and submissive Boxer girl. She sent us pictures of whatever Tessa was doing that day, what dogs she was interacting with, and a general overview of how each day went for her. The yard is big, fenced, and allows for lots of running and playing chase. The alpacas are great entertainment, and we could tell our girl wasn't the least bit stressed by leaving her in Diana's care. She ate well and was in perfect health/weight when we picked her up. She was happy to see us, but wasn't in a hurry to leave! I give Diana an A+++ for the care she showed Tessa.
Doug G. Sep 4, 2019
Diana took such good care of Murphy that I think he was sorry to go back home. Space to run, sweet other dogs to play with.
Diana quickly figured out Murphy's eating habits and accommodated them. I do not hesitate to recommend Diana highly.
Jessica R. Aug 6, 2019
This is doggy paradise! I have an active dog and there is plenty of safe space for him to run and play. Diana takes great care in meeting the needs of our dog and has a positive approach with him. I felt very comfortable leaving him with her. She clearly genuinely loves dogs and has a strong understanding of canine behavior. I'm not sure my boy was ready to come back home with us, he was so happy there! I loved receiving pictures of him each day having a fun time at Diana's place. Would definitely board him with her again in the future.
Ellen S. Jul 1, 2019
Ginger, our 9 year old Belgian Malinois, had a great experience at Diana's. I also found working with her to be a positive experience. Ginger has Cushings disease, and Diana was really great about giving her all her supplements and dealing with her specific routines. It was fun when we were in MX to see all the pictures of her online having a good time. When needed, she communicated with us promptly, and was responsive to questions. It was clear when we picked her up that Ginger had bonded with Diana, and although happy to see me, I am sure she would have stayed longer if needed. I would have no hesitation about using her services again. As a matter of fact, she will be our go to person for Ginger the next time we go away. Thanks for everything Diana!
Valeri B. Jun 3, 2019
Diana was amazing with our Daisy. Daisy had such an awesome time she cannot even wait for her next visit I only send Daisy to the best and well Diana is definitely the best!
Jammie F. May 19, 2019
The BEST!!! I never worry about my babies!!
Jim L. Apr 22, 2019
Diana is the quintessential professional and so very caring and thoughtful during the entire time she was taking care of my very large dog. She made all sorts of accommodations to ensure a very nervous animal felt so much at home and comfortable. I can’t thank her enough for giving such a feeling of security to me and to my dog.
Bill H. Apr 15, 2019
Personalized and loving care given.
Amanda P. Apr 2, 2019
Wag-n-Smile is the absolute best! My dog, Harley, has stayed with Diana on several occasions and I hope I never have to send her anywhere else! I never have to feel guilty for leaving her because I know she is getting her own ultimate doggie vacation. Diana sends detailed updates so you get a wonderful story, complete with photos, of what your pooch has been up to. Harley loves to go to Wag-n-Smile and run with the other doggies, play fetch, and explore the large and beautiful yards. Diana obviously loves dogs and spends time playing with them during their visits. I highly recommend Wag-n-Smile to anyone looking for a skilled, attentive, and loving dog boarder.
Janelle F. Mar 26, 2019
Wag-n-Smile is the best! Diana is amazing - I couldn't ask for a better sitter. Her property is perfect - secure and safe with places to explore, sniff, run and play. She is so attentive to the dogs, and her calm demeanor is so reassuring. My dog has stayed with Wag-n-Smile several times this year, long and short stays, and he comes home contented and happy each time. Before I found Wag-n-Smile, my dog would get upset when he saw the suitcase come out—but now he lounges on the bed and watches me pack, then he happily hops in the car and only gets excited when we pull into Diana's driveway. The best part of my trips lately is seeing photos of how much fun my dog is having without me. :) Thank you for the peace of mind, Wag-n-Smile!
Usha H. Mar 25, 2019
Diana always takes awesome care of our elderly dog. He’s always happy to go to Wag n Smile!
Dale D. Feb 22, 2019
Diana takes wonderful care of our two dogs; the photos she shares always come with tidbits of information so there is no doubt that they are enjoying their time with her.
Kelly A. Feb 22, 2019
Our little guy Zuko has a great time at Diana’s, from socializing with other fur friends to running freely in her big yard to obstacle course practice! It is so reassuring to know we can leave him and he’ll be happy and safe. Thank you Wagnsmile!!
Jammie G. Feb 18, 2019
There is no other provider I trust more! As always, she is the best!
Jennifer E. February 17, 2019
I have two pups I adore and it gives me such peace of mind to leave them with Diana at Wag n Smile when we leave town. She loves dogs and knows dogs. Her property is ideal for dogs and our girls love to run and play there. I trust Diana totally. You couldn’t ask for a better boarding option for your cherished pups.
Chalyssa C. February 5, 2019
I have boarded my dog Bella with Diana, the owner of Wag n Smile, on four different occasions now and she is absolutely wonderful. Her property is spacious with a beautiful outdoor setting. There are several backyards and plenty of land for the dogs to explore. Diana has always taken very good care of my Bella , from giving medications to special dietary needs, and getting enough exercise. My dog is my baby and when I go out of town it is so difficult to be without her. Diana always makes this easier for me by sending detailed daily updates and pictures so I always know how she is doing. I cannot speak highly enough of Diana and the service she provides. Leaving your fur babies in someone else’s hands is a very hard thing to do but when I take my Bella to Diana’s it’s like leaving her with a trusted family member. I will happily continue to only board Bella with Wag n Smile 😊
Renee B. Dec 13, 2018
Diana was once again amazing, but this time over the top! After I left the state for work, Duke had emergency surgery to remove a "sliver" from chewing on a stick (which had developed into an abscess). Following the surgery, she was able to take him with a cone and 3x day treatments. I just don't know what I would have done without her! Thank you Diana! You are now a true Duke family member, we will see you again soon!
Justin O. Nov 24, 2018
Diana went above and beyond (particularly given the holiday) to take care of our dog and make sure he was well exercised. We’ll definitely call Diana next time we’re in a need of a dogsitter!
Jennifer E. Nov 17, 2018
There is no better care for our dogs. Diana is the best!
John and Carol R. Nov 5, 2018
Diana provided excellent care for our pup. She shared photos with comments on a daily basis. We would not hesitate to leave Boo in her care again. Thanks so much Diana!
Jennifer E. Oct 28, 2018
Diana is the BEST with our dogs and they love going to her house!
Cosimia P. Oct 18, 2018
Diana is the absolute BEST! We boarded our Boxer with her for a week and I couldn't be happier with the care and love she provided in our absence. Diana sent several updates every day (with pictures) which comforted me while we were away. I now have a whole photo album of my doggie's "vacation"!
Now that we have found Diana K., we don't have to stress about finding quality doggie daycare ever again. Thank you!!!
Renee B. Sep 28, 2018
What an awesome experience for my very spoiled lab! Diana wants to know all the details about all the dogs she has so she can provide the best personal experience for each one. She sent me pictures of his day, text messages of significant moments, and I showed up to her group of dogs playing together. Duke has found his second home! I would highly recommend Diana to anyone that has a spoiled pet and is worried about leaving them behind during their travels....Duke had a better week than I did!
Sheila B. Sep 24, 2018
Diana took such good care of our elderly dog! Her daily updates were so reassuring. We were able to relax knowing she was in good hands.
Amanda P. Sep 10, 2018
Our dog had an amazing vacation with Diana. Also, we loved the photos and updates. We appreciate that she took the time to show and tell us all about our dog's adventures there.
Kelly A. Aug 20, 2018
Our Coton de Tulear can be nervous around new people, but Diana did a fantastic job making sure he felt comfortable and safe. He spent 10 days romping in the grassy yard with his new dog friends and even came home with new tricks! Diana was great about contacting us everyday with photos and updates. We will definitely leave our pup with Diana the next time we take a vacation.
Lynn W. Jul 10, 2018
Diana is always wonderful with my dog. We both love her!
Lucia C. Jul 3, 2018
Diana took very good care of our dog, he came home happy and tired which is always a good thing, she sent daily pictures of our dog so we knew how his day went :)
Cynthia I. Jun 27, 2018
Diana and John and Jenna and Cotton all made our two dogs feel right at home. They were very well cared for and happy. Diana was excellent at photos and updates! Thank you, Diana!!
Jennifer E. Jun 9, 2018
We couldn’t ask for a better experience for our dogs. Our two dogs just spent two weeks with Diana at her home while we went abroad and I’ve never felt so good about leaving them with anyone before. Diana is a caring and fun caretaker and our dogs had the best time with her and her family at their lovely home. They even received some training and learned about agility with her. We received updates and photos daily which were gifts to us as we missed them while away. I’m relieved to know they have such a wonderful place to stay while we travel. 5 stars!
Carolyn S N. May 27, 2018
Diana not only has such a lovely home for your dogs, she herself is a gracious wonderful person. She goes out of her way to take proper care of your dogs. She has a 5 acre beautiful parcel all fenced in different degrees for large & small dogs to roam the grounds. I am so pleased to be able to depend on her to take excellent care of my two Dachshunds, who love her & her husband very much!
Samantha C. May 21, 2018
Diana was great! My dogs had a wonderful weekend with her family. She was a so sweet to my dogs and sent me photo updates.
Mirissa H. May 9, 2018
Diana is amazing! She treated my two dogs like her own! She kept me up to date with how they where doing with pictures and messages. It was wonderful being able to leave them in her hands and know that they where being well taken care of. My two dogs loved being there as well with her big backyard to run and play in.
Jori B. May 7, 2018
Diana is very professional in her practice, and truly loves and cares for the animals in her care like they are family! Her property is beautiful and specialized for dogs. I will be using Diana again in the future and would highly recommend her services to anyone.
Lynn W. April 14, 2018
Diana is ALWAYS wonderful with my dog Blossom! I never worry about her when I am gone. Thanks for all the TLC you give her!
Yaeko R. April 2, 2018
Another wonderful stay. We so appreciate being able to go on vacation and know that Clover is happy and well cared for. The daily updates put our mind at rest.
Terry Z. March 13, 2018
Excellent quality time with our dog. Diana was excellent with Kobie. Had no worries of leaving him with Diana. Enjoyed the pictures.
Janelle F. January 4, 2018
Diana was amazing with my dog — she definitely went above and beyond! Very responsive and helpful walking me through all the initial details. Great attention to all his needs throughout his stay, and he seemed right at home from day one. From her stockpile of toys in the house, to an amazing (safe & secure) yard for outdoor sniffs and exploring, I think my dog enjoyed his vacation as much as I did! She took such great care of him and sent fun updates every day, I was really pleased with everything!
Yaeko R. January 2, 2018
Our energetic golden retriever had a wonderful stay. She played, explored and seemed to really enjoy herself. The daily updates were fun to see and helped to reassure us she was having a good time.
Carolyn S N. December 27, 2017
Diana, is a wonderful, friendly & loving caregiver for my two Dogs, Paris & Cody! She, just cared for them over the Holiday and I felt they were in such excellent care. Diana, sent me pictures of them and their activities daily and it was such a nice option to see them daily! I would highly recommend Diana and her wonderful care of Dogs. She, has a lovely home and large yard, for the dogs with different levels of outside gated enclosures! Lots of grass and areas for your dogs. Very, lovely and a wonderful environment for the animals!
Dina December 4, 2017
Gaspacha had a great time under Diana's care. She was happy and herself the entire stay with Diana. Diana sent me photos and communication every evening. It's a great comfort to our family knowing Gaspacha was cared by a loving person. I will definitely board Gaspacha with Diana again. Diana gave Gaspacha so much love. I cannot recommend her enough.
Tia B. December 1, 2017
Wonderful experience! Diana is so personable and is excellent at communicating. She sent me daily updates (with pictures!) that made me know that my dogs were in good hands. Her outdoor setup is also excellent and gave my dogs plenty of room to get lots of exercise. Highly recommend her!
Lori O. November 25, 2017
Diana was so wonderful with our Labradoodle, George. It was his first time staying with her and we were very pleased. She has beautiful fenced in yard as well as a great indoor play space. The photo updates she sent were very appreciated. We will definitely use her again!
Mary and Bill November 1, 2017
My husband and I were faced with a last minute trip to Portland for two nights, and contacted Diana about taking our two dogs (an older rescue dog, and a puppy) on short notice. She cheerfully accommodated us and the dogs at Wag-n-Smile. We were very pleased with our tour of the facilities, including two large well-fenced play areas, and a large indoor dog area. Our dogs love to be outdoors in the good weather, so this was readily available there. We found Diana to be very organized and quite knowledgeable about dogs. Not only were our dogs very well taken care of at Wag-n-Smile, but Diana surprised us by working with our puppy to not be afraid of his harness by the time we picked them up. We were both extremely pleased with the care and attention our dogs received during their stay with Diana. We also greatly appreciated her photos and updates while we were away from them. Our dogs seemed very content with having lodged there. We plan to use Wag-n-Smile in the future when our travel plans require us to leave our dogs behind. We highly recommend Wag-n-Smile as a safe and enjoyable temporary home for your dogs as well!
Anne W. October 29, 2017
Diana was such a saint for us! We were so lucky we found someone so reliable and caring to take care of our Reg. We wish we could do more to thank her than just this review! She sent us updates every day and Reggie clearly had a blast. Thank you so much Diana for being so attentive and loving to Reg for such an extended period of time! If we are ever back in Eugene and need a sitter we know where to go now.
Nancy M. October 10, 2017
Wonderful experience for me and my dog JAX. Diana is knowledgeable about dogs and JAX loved her. He was carefully introduced to the other dogs there and was comfortable very quickly. I had no concerns about leaving Jax. The area was clean, well organized, and spacious. Diana sent photos and a few highlights each day. Jax was well cared for and had lots of fun too! Will be rebooking soon! Peace of mind when leaving your pet in another's care = priceless!
Lynn W. October 7, 2017
Diana was a wonderful lady & dog sitter! My dog Blossom loved her & so did I. We both were made to feel right at home from the minute we arrived. Diana has a great yard set up with acres to wander. She kept me updated daily with pictures & info. on Blossom. I told her Blossom sleeps on her own bed next to mine. Diana was nice enough to let Blossom sleep next to her at night. I was so happy to have found a super care-giver as Diana. I will use her every time I travel.
Terry Z. September 26, 2017
Diana was terrific with Kobie and us. We felt great and at ease leaving Kobie with her. She has a love for dogs, very knowledgeable and experienced in working with them. We will have Diana watch Kobie again, she's awesome! Diana, thank you.
Chalyssa C. September 10, 2017
Diana was absolutely wonderful!!!! I had a trip planned, and the family member that I had originally set up to watch my dog fell through at the last minute. I messaged Diana after reading all of her great reviews and seeing the pictures of her beautiful property. She was very quick to respond and was able to accommodate me for a meet and greet the very next day. After a great first meeting we moved forward with our boarding appointment. I expressed my anxiety about being away from my dog and she alleviated that with many texts and pictures on how my love was doing throughout her stay. My dog felt right at home with her and her two dogs. Knowing that my dog was in such good hands allowed me to enjoy my vacation to the fullest. I am so grateful I found this site and Diana. I would book with her again in a heartbeat and will continue to happily recommend her to friends and family.
Usha H. August 22, 2017
Diana is an attentive and caring pet sitter. Our dogs have special needs and, as their sitter, she has catered to those needs … dosing medication as needed, providing comfort for their anxiety, and keeping us informed while we were away. We have total and complete confidence that they are in good hands when we have to travel. Before she was available we had numerous bad experiences with dog sitters but now that we’ve found her, we no longer suffer our own form of separation anxiety when we need to travel … we know our dogs are in good hands. I can recommend her services with complete confidence.
Kathie L. August 13, 2017
I have known Diana for many years. She is a person with honesty and integrity. She is reliable and has good judgement. She has a common sense approach to dogs and speaks their language. Diana genuinely loves dogs. I have trusted her with my dogs for years. As they have aged and have more needs, like medication and disabilities, Diana has been great at adapting to our changes. I would recommend her service to anyone who has a dog they consider a family member or a pet. She is great at boarding and training.
John A. August 8, 2017
Diana is a certified dog trainer and will provide your dog with exceptional in-home care and boarding. She has the experience and knowledge you will want for your dog to ensure they are cared for in a loving manner. She also has the talent and training to understand dog behavior and positive reinforcement techniques that are used to train behavior. You won't be disappointed and you can travel without worry knowing that your pet is safe, secure and in a happy environment.
Maynard B. August 8, 2017
I am Diana's brother and we are a family of dog lovers. My sisters and I have had, lived with and loved dogs since we were born. Diana in particular has spent years volunteering with animal shelters, fostering animals at home and helping with placement. She has invested her time getting the training and formal skills to transition her passion into a profession. For years she has built plans to retire from her Federal government position to create a dog training and boarding business, and now those plans are reality. Diana is more than a knowledgeable dog lover; she is thoroughly reliable and trustworthy, detail oriented and a fastidious planner. The practical side of you will be pleased with her business skills and the emotional side of you (and your pooch) will be thrilled with her love for dogs!
Colleen D. August 7, 2017
Diana was one of my dog training students while she worked on achieving her certification. She has a wonderful natural talent and understanding of dogs. Diana consistently shows patients and caring for each dog she is working with. She is so good, that while she lived in my area, I hired her :) You won't regret hiring her.
