Bessie is awesome. Our pup loves staying with her and he's always excited to see her. It's easy to see her love for dogs and we always get cute pics of Shad while we are away. We highly recommend Bessie :-)

Bessie is fabulous! Our dog Coco loved staying with her- we hate leaving our dog and not bringing her on vacation with us but she had her own vacation with Bessie. She was spoiled with walks and attention and we were sent pictures of a very happy doggie. We enjoyed our vacation knowing our dog was looked after so well. Bessie was also so accommodating with dropping off and picking up- would highly recommend her!!

Emma loved staying with Bessie! We got picture updates and Bessie was wonderful to work with. Emma can’t wait for her next stay, it was easy to see that she enjoyed her time away from home!

I love dogs and have time for them

I have always had dogs in our home. In the past 35 years I have owned a Great Pyrenees, Chesapeake Bay Retriever and a Flat Coat Retriever. Three very different dogs, all requiring exercise and love to be happy. I believe dogs are an important part of a families lives and require special care and attention to be the best companion they can be. I recently retired and at this time we have no dogs ...

What Bessie would like to know about your dog

I would want to know if there was an aggression problem, if the dog was good around other dogs and people, if the dog was used to walking on a leash and any special dietary needs.

When Bessie watches your pet

I live across from a forest preserve that has an excellent walking trail, and my neighborhood provides an enjoyable walk. I have a back yard for playing fetch in. In warm weather I have put a small pool up for splashing!
