Ben enjoyed his stay! The host family spoiled him and sent lots of photos during his visit. I’d highly recommend Desiree and her family!
Desiree and her family are the best. My dog instantly adapted with her family and I was peaceful all throught his stay at their place. Desiree has sent me pictires and videos of my dog also. Would never look for someone else to sit my dog in future. They are the best.
MUFASA loves his time with Desiree! He gets to socialize with other dogs, go on walks and play in the park. I can always count on Desiree to make sure Mufasa enjoys his stay whether it's a day trip or overnight! So glad we found you!

Howdy! We are a mother daughter team! Between the two of us, we have over 5 years of experience caring for pets on Ft. Meade and Texas. We enjoy spending our time with pets and their people. I accompany my 14 year old daughter every home we visit. She will walk, play with, feed, water, and pick up after your pets while on a walk. I usually will clean if your pet has made a ...
What Desiree would like to know about your dog
Because we own a Mastiff, we would like to have our doggy friends to be at least 50 pounds. It is NOT because he is aggressive, he just doesn't know his own size! His paws are as big as my hand. :-) He is very mild mannered and loves when we have new doggy friends. The more worried guest is the owner and the little dog if they have not been around large dogs. Mastiffs are the "gentle giants". However, we have had a few guests who were 5 - 15 pounds and they did very well. We do not have any breed preferences.
Our 3 year old is high energy as any 3 year old boy can be (if not worse). He loves to play with the dogs and feels like there are not enough dogs in the house if we don't have a guest. Due to his energy and love for dogs, we ask that your doggy is good with children.
It is preferred that your dog is crate trained so that when we leave, your dog has a safe, personal and comfortable spot. However please do not bring a crate if they do not find their crate to be a safe space or buy one just so they can stay with us. That causes undo stress on a doggy and could result in a negative experience.
We do know that accidents happen but we request house trained guests if possible. Please let us know during the "meet and greet" if your doggy has any issues. Please let us know your brand of dog food just in case they run out of food or you request an extended stay and we thin there is not enough food. If you have a doggy with some anxiety issues, let us know. We do make accommodations for them upon notification of the anxiety. You will hear from us often so any needs and/or behaviors we find "out of the ordinary" we will contact you and ask if the behavior is normal and what your preference is when dealing with the behavior. Typically, we will call (if you're available), the owner's voice can be soothing and help your doggy through stress.
Most importantly, we need to know if your dog is an "ESCAPE ARTIST." We need very clear instructions on how to handle your dog if someone is at the door, when the dog is outside and when we take trips to the dog park. Doggies are very intelligent. They can find their way out of kennels, climb/jump fences, find weaknesses in you fences, dig holes, and anything else you can think of in a matter of minutes. We do have baby gates, however we know dogs can jump those also especially if they are motivated for one reason or another. Many dogs who are homesick will look for any opportunity they can to escape and find you.
Please ask as many questions of us as you'd like. We are always available and do our best to ensure that your doogy's stay is safe, happy and healthy!
