Description:

Dedicated loving care for your small dog in our single story Rancho Penasquitos home. We are located on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood and have a fenced yard for pets to play in.

The Bijou story:
Bijou was a four pound toy poodle and was part of our family for fifteen years. Finding someone to care for Bijou on the rare occasions when we had to travel and could not take him with us was always an issue. As Bijou grew older the problem became worse, he was accustomed to being at home with us and would be traumatized whenever he had to spend time in a kennel. Having a pet sitter check on him during the day was not acceptable because he did not like strangers in his house (we weren’t too keen on it either) and he did not like being alone.

When Bijou passed away we thought about getting another pet but decided we didn’t want to deal with the boarding issue when we had to travel. Then we thought there must be plenty of other small dog owners who have the same temporary pet care problem, and that is how our custom pet care idea was born.

We have been small dog owners (miniature and toy poodles) for more than 40 years. We are keenly aware of the special needs of smaller dogs and are cautious when they are in our care. Your pet will get supervised exercise outside but will be protected from aggressive animals and predators at all times.

About George E.:

Retired couple with lots of experience with small dogs. Let us pamper your pet while you are away, your pet will appreciate it.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

We both grew up with dogs as pets and have had them for most of our married lives. Our first pet together was Tony, a black miniature poodle that joined our family on Valentine's Day 1963. After Tony we had Danny, a champagne toy poodle who was the childhood pet of our two children. After the children left the nest and Danny passed we had Biojou, a very small apricot toy (teacup) poodle. Bijou enriched our lives for fifteen years before he passed. The reason we have not replaced Bijou is explained in our profile as "the Bijou story".

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

We pretty much like all dogs but prefer to care for the smaller ones. We prefer not to care for aggressive dogs or those with a history of being overly destructive.

Do you have reliable transportation in the event of an emergency?

We have two SUV's, both in excellent repair and have established a relationship with a nearby 24 hour pet emergency clinic in the unlikely case that there is a need for their services.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Sure but we would prefer to care for well animals and would prefer to only administer maintenance medication. It is not that we are uncomfortable administering medication but more that we are concerned with maintaining a healthy environment for future client's pets.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Your dog will live in our home with us and be continually part of our activities. We will spend frequent times playing with your pet and accompanying them outside for exercise but generally they will be allowed free access while we go about our daily activities.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

We have a small fenced back yard that is mostly concrete but there is a small flea free artificial grass potty area as well. The yard has plenty of space for smaller dogs to exercise and it is designed to be easily cleaned.

Where will my dog sleep?

We try to provide a comfortable and secure environment for your dog to sleep in. If your dog is crate trained they may feel more secure sleeping in their own crate but if they are accustomed to sleeping on your bed and they feel comfortable on our bed that is fine too. We observe the dog and they usually let us know what they prefer.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

We live on a quiet street and your dog may be taken for walks during the day when other dogs are not around. We want to limit your dog's exposure to larger and possibly aggressive dogs so we will not walk it in parks or take it to a dog park.

George and Kay were wonderful with my two dogs. I received texts on how well they adapted and pictures of them being very relaxed and comfortable. It's like the two went to stay with grandma and grandpa and were spoiled! I will definitely use George and Kay again.

I was nervous about leaving my 8 month puppy until I meant George and his lovely wife Kay. They have their home set up so nicely for baby sitting the dogs. I have a small dog and was glad that they only take care of small dogs. I would not hesitate to refer them and will use them when needed.

George and Kay were wonderful. We have 2 little dogs and they treated them like they were a part of their family. They invited us to their home to check it out and they answered all our questions. It is so nice to be able to go on a get-a-way and feel comfortable that our boyz are taken good care of. I highly recommend them for your pet sitting needs. DeDe & Tom Fadell

George and Kay are wonderful people who took absolutely great care of my dog. Sumi doesn't take quickly to others but she made herself right at home with them. I received a picture and update my first day away from her--which was sweet and helped alleviate my anxiety over being away from her. I loved the attention they gave her and won't hesitate to use them again in the future.

George and Kay are wonderful!! From the moment I met them I knew our Gus would be well taken care of and in great hands. They were very understandable when our travel plans changed last minute and I wasn't worried about Gus at all while he was with them.

George & Kay are amazing. They answered all my questions and was very understanding about our dogs needs. I was really worry about Pookie who has separation anxiety, but Kay made sure she felt loved and assure her I would be back for her. Our girls enjoy their background and couldn't stop running around. I'm so happy we went with George & Kay.
