Simply fabulous!
I'm incredibly happy that I found Connie and Steve! Not only do I get amusing updates and print-worthy pictures throughout his stays, I can see how much affection there is between my pup and this wonderful family ?
I couldn't recommend this sitter more! 11/10!

This was our first experience leaving our dog with anyone. Other than the fact that he was happy to see us I think he would have preferred to stay. He had other dogs to play with, a fenced backyard with doggie door access and a very loving caregiver. Connie was great at sending us updates and pictures. We will definitely use her again.

Connie was really great at caring for my geriatric blind Yorkie. She has a lovely home and a great set up for dogs who are looking for a nice stay-cation. I really appreciate the daily updates and tasteful pics she sent me through out Momo’s stay. I was so happy to have found her and was greatful to her for enduring a whopping 4 hours of sleep ( for maybe a whole week? ) trying to ...

Loving 24/7 care - 15lbs & Under

We're easy going older couple with grown children. We sadly lost our beloved Pomeranian in December 2016 and our adorable Maltese in April 2017. They were both ill for quite some time and required round-the-clock care. After their passing, our hearts needed time to heal, but along came a little rascal named Pichu. He was a boarder who became our own in October 2017. He's a joy, and we adore his silly ways.

What Connie would like to know about your dog

We specialize in small dogs up to 15 pounds. We prefer potty-trained dogs, though potty pads and diapers are okay. We're also available for special needs dogs like seniors, blind, deaf, and those that need a little more care.

When Connie watches your pet

SMALL NUMBERS & ONLY SMALL DOGS UNDER 15 POUNDS

We limit the number of dogs we board at a time to three. We book pups based on their personalities, not strictly on whether we have space or not. We want the best experience for your dog as well as ours, so we're an excellent choice for timid dogs or those who've had bad experiences with other dogs in the past.

PET SAFETY

We take great care in keeping your dog safe. We've installed safety gates to ensure there's no chance for a pup to slip out the door or fall down the stairs. We also use these to separate dogs who are having issues that can't be corrected by commands and redirection, and we use them when it's time to eat to ensure everyone eats their own food. We also have infection control and sanitation protocols in place and we have a security system and both internal and external cameras.

VACCINATIONS, FLEAS & AGGRESSION SURVEY
We have a quick online form you'll be required to fill out before your pet's arrival. Thank you for helping us keep all of our pets healthy! >>>>>>The form is available at http://bit.ly/smallpawsvacs <<<<<<<<

Vaccination Requirements: Your pet is required to be vaccinated a >>>>>MINIMUM of 10 DAYS BEFORE <<<<<<< his/her arrival for an overnight stay with the following vaccinations:
Required for Overnight Boarding
--Bordetella (kennel cough) required yearly
--Rabies (either 1 or 3-year vaccine accepted)
--Distemper & Parvovirus usually in combo shots such as DHPP or DHLPP (either 1 or 3-year vaccine accepted)

Strongly Recommended but not Required: Canine Flu (both H3N2 and H3N8 vaccines)

Flea Control: All pups must be treated for fleas before arrival. We treat our yard and check all dogs when they arrive to keep our flea-free status.

>>>>>Aggression Survey: <<<<<< Our kennel insurance requires us to verify that your pet does not have any aggressive tendencies.

EXERCISE

We have a park just two doors away and a good size backyard for small dogs. I have Multiple Sclerosis so dogs who enjoy one-on-one time playing and not long walks are better for me. However, my husband loves hiking and would be happy to take a dog out for the day or an hour, and he'll run them ragged! Sorry, dogs who bark, cry, or whine excessively cannot be accommodated at our facility.

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS

Unless you specify otherwise, your dog will sleep in our communal queen-size bed. For pets who require a kennel, we have them available in three sizes; however, we only kennel at the parent's request. We are a kennel-free boarding facility and we have plenty of fresh, clean dog beds available if he/she prefers.

TREATS & TOYS
We stock mostly organic treats and bully sticks for your pup's enjoyment. We also have plenty of toys (We are BarkBox subscribers so new toys arrive monthly), dog dishes, and more.

FOOD
Since pups can have finicky stomachs, you'll need to bring an adequate supply of dog food for their stay. We do supplement with an organic pumpkin puree to help prevent diarrhea and vomiting.

MEDICATIONS
We're happy to medicate your dog at no additional charge. Clear instructions and written dosage requirements must be provided as they are required by our kennel insurance provider.

We're looking forward to making your pup's stay a special one!
