Carolyn was amazing! The circumstances of Tilly’s boarding afforded me the opportunity to visit Tilly a couple of times during her stay at Carolyn’s home and even take her to the beach I was hesitant to visit as I was afraid that Tilly would freak out when it was time for me to leave. Tilly is a recent rescue and still dealing with abandonment issues. However, my fears were unfounded. Carolyn, her home ...

Bad things can happen when you put animals under stress. We have two senior dogs and I was really worried about leaving them in a strange environment for two weeks. When I met Carolyn she had a calm, peaceful energy and her house is in a quiet secluded area of Montecito. Thus, we had a feeling this would work and there are no regrets. While we were in Antigua & missing our dogs Carolyn sent ...

Full-time at home; I talk to them;

Hi, I am Carolyn. I have undergone advanced screening, including being met face-to-face and my home has been inspected. I will be able to provide your dog with the care and attention he deserves while staying with me. While enjoying his/her stay at our home, your dog will be treated like any of my own precious dogs. My adult children and I live on a large property and we have birds, and of course ...

What Carolyn would like to know about your dog

I would want to know if your pup feels comfortable around kids and other dogs. And of course all of us would want to know what we can do to make sure your dog feels most relaxed. I have seen that bulldogs or mixes get along for awhile, but if the "lock eyes", they challenge each other. Therefore, one at a time is max for me!

When Carolyn watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We will go on walks around my lovely double-fenced property. I am sure we will have tail-wagging canines here to play with, as well as massages as "requested". Your dog's sleeping arrangement:
Your dog is welcome to sleep wherever he feels most comfortable, whether he prefers curling up in a perfect ball on the living room couch or snuggling in bed with me.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am home full time, so how does 24/7 sound? Your dog will have my undivided attention, given the love and affection he deserves day and night. While you are gone you can be sure to rest easy knowing that your canine pal is being very well taken care of and his every need will be met. His every wish will be my command, whether he needs a good scratching behind the ears or wants to go for a long walk.... Also, Belly rubs on demand! Dogs are very smart and adaptable and love new adventures. They are overjoyed, though, to see their people, after the visit is over. They have memories like elephants which is wonderful to see.
