As usual, Boaz had a great time hanging out with his buddy, Reagan.

Dorothy took great care of my dog when we found out she had symptoms of a UTI the night before thanksgiving. She spent a couple hours with her at the vet the night before a holiday. Thanks!

  • Verified Background Check

We'll love your dog like our own.

We have been owned by our dogs for over 35 years. We have loved and enjoyed having them in our home from puppies to adults and some who had health problems. We pride ourselves on having been able to teach them to be loving, well socialized members of society. We used to trade dog care with two of our neighbors when they went on vacation. We have been dog foster parents and our current dog ...

What Dorothy would like to know about your dog

I do have restrictions, and they may seem "over the top". But consider this: My restrictions show how conscientious I am. I have determined that dogs owners who respect the restrictions are conscientious owners and they will want a conscientious dog sitter. THAT'S ME!!!I
Dog owner must provide:
1. Written proof of all vaccinations and flea/tick prevention
2. Written Proof of Bordatella vaccination
Dog must be house trained

I HAVE ALLERGIES to certain types of dogs. I break out in hives from dogs that have OILY FLAT COATS. That is all of the flat coated hunting dogs, and most of the other flat coated dog breeds.
If you are not sure if your dog fits this description, please feel free to send me a request and indicate what breed your dog is. I can let you know if we should progress to the next step which is meet & greet. I LOVE ALL DOGS and wish I could sit for all of them. the allergies prohibit that.
WALKING YOUR DOG: I cannot walk a dog that pulls on the leash. i have a bad back and the constant pull, sends my back into spasm. I want all of us to be safe when taking care of your dog, so I request that you understand my restriction. If the dog walks with a "loose leash", that is fine. They don't need to be trained to heel, just not pull.
I CAN play with your dog in our fenced back yard.
And I will take them to the dog park off of River Rock if you give me approval..

For sleeping arrangements, we have a 5" thick dog bed for your dog that is encased in a zippered protective cover that I wash after every dog visit. I do not allow any stuffed toys, blankets, or beds to be brought into our home.

When Dorothy watches your pet

If you desire, we can take them to the dog park off of Cason Lane.
We will play in the fenced in back yard, and if your dog likes to play tug of war or fetch, we love to play those.
I am able to walk dogs that walk on a loose leash. That means the leash is not pulled taut when walking with the dog. (I have a bad back and pulling causes flare ups in spasms)
