My Frannie loved her time with Beckie and her fur friends. It was like she was at camp rather than being boarded. They had the patience to put up with her quirks. And gave her tons of love. I would definitely recommend Beckie

Safety and our dogs wellbeing was our top concern. We were not disappointed. Beckie is a rare find.

Beckie is wonderful with dogs. Our Shihtzu, Willow, had a grand time, came home tired but happy. We received pictures and videos during her stay allowing us to see the activities that our dog experienced.
We'll definitely be going back.

Pure love & care you can trust.

Hello, my name is Beckie. I am a freelance writer and work from home. My husband and I have lived in our home for more than 30-years. We have raised our daughter and many dogs here. We both believe a house just wouldn't be a home without a loyal dog-friend to share it with.

We welcome all fun-sized pups (toy, miniature and small dogs) in our home. ...

What Beckie would like to know about your dog

I welcome socialized fun-sized dogs (toy, miniature, small) who are current on all their vaccinations. I prefer dogs who don't "mark" inside and won't chew on furniture.
I would want to know:
- Age and general health.
- Where your dog normally sleeps when home?
- What kind of life-style does your dog enjoy when with you (e.g., daily walks, time spent outside vs. inside, etc.)
- Is your dog crate trained?
- What, if anything, upsets or scares your dog?
- What does your dog love the most?!

When Beckie watches your pet

My style of dog-care is achieved through positive reinforcement, kindness, consistency, trust, and pure love for animals.

I do not believe in dominant forms of dog handling. I do have an outside and an inside kennel in the event of an urgent situation; but I don't believe in kenneling dogs for any length of time, and only in specific situations or if your pet is acclimated to the kennel and prefers to be there.

Our guests are fed and exercised on a routine schedule. Since my work as a freelance writer is done from home, your dog will be around me all day, and in the evening they will be with both me and my husband. Like my dog Freddie, they will be spoken to, petted and loved throughout the day.

Walks will happen most days, but will depend on the house guests, weather and pick-up/drop-off schedules.

Guests can expect stimulating play, walks and plenty of cuddles. From our home there are many safe walks, and with your permission, I love to pack them in the car from time-to-time and go to the Burke-Gilman Trail, Hamlin Park, Magnuson Park, or one of the many dog friendly parks nearby for longer walks and play. Of coarse if your pet loves to just lounge around then that is what they can do!

While guests are welcome on the furniture (especially the little guys), dog beds are conveniently placed throughout the house. I let them figure our where they are going to be most comfortable and go from there.
