Dorothy was awesome. Wrigley thoroughly enjoyed his stay. We got pictures and updates and knew at all times he was in good hands. We will definitely use Dorothy again!

Dorothy took great care of my Apollo, he had a great time playing with her dogs and cat. She also had me informed constantly and send photos.

Retired, full time for your dog.

I am retired, have trained dogs for over fifty years, live in a condo with two shelties. I like to sit ONE dog at a time so it can have special one on one attention. Special arrangements can be made with two dogs that are from the same family. My floors are tile and I sterilize them between visits. I do NOT have a fenced yard but we have a 20 x 80 fenced dog ...

What Dorothy would like to know about your dog

I would need to know the breed, sex, spayed or neutered, weight, age, disposition of the guest. All dogs must have proof of current vaccinations.

When Dorothy watches your pet

I only have one guest at a time (with very few exceptions). Since I am retired, my days are organized around the dogs, our walks, our training periods, our naps. Most dogs bring their own bed and/or crate so they are more comfortable in surroundings they recognize. They are welcome to sleep on furniture and/or beds whenever they choose. Our walks are through our neighborhood where they get an opportunity to interact with other neighbors. They also can play in our fenced 20 x 80 run.
