“Colin watched our pitty/Shepard mix Winnie for the night and we could tell she had the best time! He took her on hikes and sent us pictures the whole time. Winnie can be a bit reactive to other dogs and a little nervous in new settings so it's clear that Colin is trustworthy and experienced with dogs. She was super comfortable and happy when we picked her up in the morning. Thanks again for watching our pup, you'll absolutely be our first call when we're back in Boone!”
“Karen was wonderful with my baby. She took such good care of him for 3 nights that I had nothing to worry about. His pup got along so well with Louie and sent me updates and pictures very promptly which I much much appreciated. She made it much easier as it is the first time I was away from Louie. Will definitely contact her again if I need any pet sitting.”

About: I have always known that once I found a home on a large enough property, my new & final career would be taking care of other people’s dogs & cats. One of the reasons I rarely go on vacation is because I don’t want to leave my dogs. I have a beautiful home on 4.5 acres with plenty of fenced ( 3 different areas) in yard for safe playtime. I also have a swimming pool for those water loving pups ! The development I live in is also a great place for walking. In September, I took in a litter of 3 day old orphaned puppies. Their mom died from malnutrition and respiratory illnesses. I bottle fed the puppies and kept them in a warm room with an oxygen crate. I took them to several animal hospitals, hoping to save all of the puppies. I was told the puppies would not survive long since they contracted everything their mom had. They all said to put them down. Since they seemed happy and not suffering, I decided not to listen to the vets. So, for 6 weeks I didn’t sleep much because of the every 2 hour feedings. I gave them 2 different antibiotics, fluids, Esbilac puppy formula, oxygen and lots of love. I even slept in the same room with them because I didn’t want them to be alone. All of my efforts have paid off because they are thriving and very happy. I am at my house 24/7, unless I’m running errands, so I can take your dog(s) outside as often as they want. My house is big enough to accommodate any pup situation. If you would like your dog to socialize with other dogs, they can hang out with mine. If they don’t, I can keep my dogs away from yours. If your dog doesn’t like to be alone or sleep alone, he/she can hang with me. My big dog likes to sleep in his Crate, so I let him. I will not crate your dog unless you ask me to. I also prefer to have dogs indoors with me, unless they want to be outside. My dogs love being outside, so they go out as often as they want to. If your dog likes to go on walks, I have plenty of safe walking places close to my house. I generally won’t board multiple dogs, unless they know each other or are all in same family. I have been taking care of dogs & cats for atleast 25 years. I’m always the go to sitter for my friends / family’s pets. Experience with : Senior dog care Puppy care & training Orphaned Puppy care Oral medication administration Oxygen therapy Foster care Supportive care Transporting to & from Appointments My world revolves around my dogs and my 2 daughters, who also love animals. Your dogs will feel right at home in my home. My dogs love meeting & playing with other dogs. My daily & weekly routine is taking care of animals. If your dog likes car rides, I can take them on a hike or to the park. I provide a very safe environment for all pets, mine & yours. My fence gates have locks on them and I have a locking fence around the pool area as well as my deck area. I also have a ramp ( back porch steps ) for senior dogs or dogs with disabilities.
“We booked boarding services for two small dogs with Desi. Originally she was to keep them five days, but our flight got canceled on our way home and she was so accommodating to keep them an extra day and even another extra night because we got in so late! Desi is so friendly and great at communicating. We received meshes and pics the whole time we were gone. I never worried a second about our pups. I will absolutely be using Desi again and would highly recommend her boarding services.”
“Olivia did a great job caring for Lola. She sent updates and pictures a couple times per day and was quick to respond whenever I texted to check up on her. Lola is a handful plus and had plenty of exercise and socialization with the other dogs.”
