I have been using Earl and Michelle for over a year now. They take care of my pets in my home 3-6 days per week every week depending on schedule. I am still delighted with the care and attention that they show my babies.

In 2013, I retired after 20 years of service in the United States Navy. I had attained the rank of Chief (BMC, EXW/SW). After I retired, I started looking for my next great adventure. I tried a number of different things, but nothing seemed to fit. Then one day while sitting on the side of a mountain. I started having a conversation with my dogs (don’t laugh, you know you do it too ...

What Earl "Pete" & Ella "Michelle" would like to know about your dog

I would like a full and honest Rover profile...
I "MUST" meet you and your dog first with my pack; this allows me to assess their mannerisms, energy levels, along with how the dogs get along. This also allows time for us to talk about any issues / concerns.

*** We require and copy of vaccination record. ***
This vital in the case of emergency where you or vet cannot be reached, i.e. after hours \ weekend \ out of town or country. It also for a peace of mind knowing that all dogs in my care are all current on vaccines.

"Is you dog intact ( spayed / neutered )?"
We do not take intact "ADULT" dog for various reason

.***Large Bully Breed***
Every time I have had a meet and greet with a large Bully my female, Sam, has done every thing she can to get away from them. Even when the dog is perfectly submissive, well mannered and calm.. I do not believe Breed is everything, every dog is different, Sam sees it the same way.. My concern is for both my dogs and yours. Although she has not shown any fear aggression, she also does not back down when " I am scared of you" or "Leave me alone" signals are ignored. It is for this reason I do not take Large Bully Breeds.....

When Earl "Pete" & Ella "Michelle" watches your pet

Where will you go on walks?
I go all over the area and like to visit state/city parks and neighborhoods. I try not to avoid the high noise areas in order to get the dogs accustomed to various sights, sounds, smells, etc. This is essential if you want to be able to take your dog with you to various places. I do try to avoid city streets during the summer time to avoid injuries to paws because of hot asphalt/concrete.

What fun activities will you do together?
Walks, hikes at state and local parks and just general exploring the city around us...
( This will very per dog / time / weather.)
