She came over a few days before to meet out r pups and see how to take of Bowie (he recently tore his ACL). She sent pictures and wrote report cards for both of her visits. We’ll definitely have her hang out with the kids again ?”

About: I have had a dog in my life since I was 8, have raised 2 daughters now 28 and 30, added several dogs permanently as well as several foster dogs; several cats; my husband had several falcons and is a licensed falconer, boarded several horses, including the one my daughter bought on her own at age 9; numerous small animals: guinea pigs, chinchillas, and hamsters; and recently took care of my son-in-law's South American racoon, a Kudamundi, for more than a year as they began homesteading in Montana. I am a retired educator, living on 10 acres of land just outside of Blue Grass, Iowa. We currently have a 6 year old Golden Retriever named Fergus and a rescue red tabby cat named Finlay. My schedule is flexible and I am also working at developing a business (property not yet zoned) on my property to provide TimberNook programming, where children are offered numerous free, open-ended, child directed/driven/supported play opportunities in the beautiful and important world of nature. I am happy to have your pet in my home, most often as a member of our family. We have a large area for free roaming (supervised of course), an outdoor enclosed kennel area, and lots of space to roam around our 10 acre property as well as our 2400 square foot home.
About: I have a cat named Fiona who I have looked after for 3 years now and she is the definition of spoiled. I also grew up helping take care of two dogs back home. Caring for animals is a natural instinct for me because I think it is important to help those who can’t help themselves. Pets provide undeniable loyalty and companionship and it’s only right to return the favor to our furry friends. 💛 I am currently working full time and my schedule is the same Monday-Friday. I am looking to spend time caring for pets in my free time, which I can dedicate around 25 hours to a week. I have a lot of downtime that I would love spending checking on and walking pups! I can easily board any type of smaller animal at my house, excluding cats and dogs. I live in a pet-friendly house that I share with my animal-loving sister and my cat, Fiona. That being said Fiona is old so I do not want to overwhelm her with other cats or dogs at my house, unfortunately.
“Arrived on time, did a great job with my pets!”
“I’m sorry I thought I sent this in about 2 weeks ago not sure what happened Lisa is a lover of All animals! She is kind and thoughtful to the needs of pets. She has always had pets and will always have them. Lisa is very knowledgeable to care for pets. Thanks Mary”
“Cheryl was very conscientious of our needs and our pups needs. She gave them plenty of time to play and do their business in the middle of the work day. We would book her again!”
“Since I have known Olivia she has always had a love for animals especially dogs. In the past, my family has had her due check-ins at our house to feed and let out our dogs. She has never let us down and is extremely responsible about it. Recently Olivia's dream came true. She finally was able to get a sweet pup of her own. He is a sweet and loving Golden Retriever puppy named Wrigley. The bond they share is amazing and I know that anyone who has her take care of their animal(s) will be extremely happy with her services. She is a kind hearted, sweet, loving individual with an incredible passion for animals. Olivia is constantly taking her dog for walks, adventures to the dog park, and setting up play dates with other dog owners where she lives. I have no doubt that she will love your dog just like she does her own.”
“Moriah is a big animal lover. She grew up on a farm and had had many pets of her own. She’s done dogsitting jobs for friends and currently has a dog of her own. She’s very competent and would be a great fit for Rover.”
“Brittany has been a joy to work with. She truly loves animals, and is a great care giver to our little doggy. He is very old, about 17 years old, and she is so tender, and loving every time she cares for him. She will take him for little walks, give him little treats, and cuddle right up to him and scratch his ears (which he loves). He is always happy to see her when we are around to see her interact with him. Pet care givers like Brittany are hard to find. If you use her for your pets, you will see what I mean. She is punctual, and reliable. And is very easy to work with. I highly recommend her!”

“Amber has been grooming our German Sheppard Muncie for over 5 years now. He is 11 years old and doesn't get around as well as he used to. She is always gentle and patient with him and makes him feel calm and comfortable. Amber has always provided an excellent professional customer experience. I would recommend her to anyone I know who needs quality work done at a fair price. ”
