Senior Dog Experience
Has 1 Dog, No Other Pets
I've had dogs all my life and know the importance of having your babies safe and secure with someone responsible who will care for and play with your dogs like you do. We offer both care in YOUR home or in my home. With over 35 years of professionally handling and training dogs of all breeds, I pride myself on caring for dogs. I've shown all over the USA and won Westminster as well as owning the number 1 show dog in the country. On top of that being a vet tech you wont find a more experienced or loving home for your babies. Tiny or Giant they will have a great stay here with us! They become part of the family when in my home. I have a full acre and it's completely fenced and 6 ft high. Lots of play time if your dog is capable or comfy beds if they prefer to lounge. I'm close to the greenway trail system so walking is fun! I also sit other animals besides dogs. Birds, fish, reptiles. Sorry no cats. Not too far from the lake! In the summer we take trips up there and if you have a water loving dog, he'll be sure to sleep well when he goes home! The lake is fun fun fun to the water loving dogs!
About this sitter:
I am a licensed Vet tech who is a huge dog lover! I understand each dogs needs as well as giving shots for a diabetic dog! Have a dog that requires medication? NO PROBLEM! I'm the one you're looking for to care for your family member as you would. I can take into my home or care in yours. I'm a very active person who can also take your dogs out for walks or runs! No need to worry while you're gone! I have it covered! I understand not every situation falls into the cookie cutter time frame most have in place. I'm flexible if you have a need outside the norm. Give me a call and let's discuss your needs for the fun filled stay for your babies! We are at the house most of the time, my son also helps takes care of the pups so there is almost always someone with your animal.
I've been an animal lover since I was able to talk. All kinds! Big small furry or feathers! I've traveled the United states extensively showing dogs and have never not owned them. You can say I'm a dog expert. :) I will watch your dog in my home or go to yours. Travel expenses may apply depending on distance. I'm a certified vet tech. so should you need me to administer medication or should your baby start not feeling well, I'm right on top of it! Your dog will not be confined to a crate, or a small run which is hosed off. He/she will be right with me inside and out with lots of play time and resting time. Contact me for info.
Why I love dog sitting
My parents had dogs before children! So if I told you how many years I've had dogs, you'd know how old I am! I've shown and handled dogs for years so I'm schooled in all breeds.
Meet my pets
My property is completely fenced so dogs can enjoy doing what they do best.. BEING DOGS! We have squirrels and chipmunks for chasing, We have a large chicken coop with 11 hens to watch and explore. Also, if the schedule says I'm booked...call me anyway. I do take more than one at a time! The holidays are coming so get your reservations in now! I accept other pets as well. I'm sorry, due to me not being able to control how others dogs relate to cats, I do not take cats for boarding.
About my yard
I have a dog haven. One acre with lots of trees, ivey and chickens! All board fenced with wire so no getting out! It's a doggy vacation! They chase the multiple squirrels and chipmunks who also reside here.
My experience administering medication
Absolutely...no problem at all.
I like to know of any potential issues up front. If the dog is sensitive to noise, other dogs or if they require anything specific. Other than that, it's time to have fun! I accept all breeds!
Here's where we'll take our walks
I live next to the green way trail system. There is plenty of miles to walk on!

In my home. If your dog prefers a crate please bring one.
