Blue was well taken care of and Dawn was very communicative throughout the week, with photos and little details that allowed us to vacation without any anxiety about how Blue was doing. We will absolutely try to book time with Dawn anytime we go away in the future and I know our dog would happily stay with ...

She also takes him for walks and continues training, even teaching him new things. Whether it's one night or more than two weeks, I see a happy dog when I return. She has given him baths when he ...

Premium care & service W/O extra $$

I'm a retired police officer - so I'm home during day with the dogs and I'm extremely trustworthy.

What Dawn would like to know about your dog

I love big dogs - all kinds. I will accept smaller dogs too. I have a series of gates to maintain separation from my dogs if needed or requested.
I cannot accept dog-aggressive or stranger-aggressive dogs.
