About George E.:

Dedicated loving care for your small dog in our single story Rancho Penasquitos home. We are located on a quiet street in a quiet neighborhood and have a fenced yard for pets to play in.

The Bijou story:
Bijou was a four pound toy poodle and was part of our family for fifteen years. Finding someone to care for Bijou on the rare occasions when we had to travel and could not take him with us was always an issue. As Bijou grew older the problem became worse, he was accustomed to being at home with us and would be traumatized whenever he had to spend time in a kennel. Having a pet sitter check on him during the day was not acceptable because he did not like strangers in his house (we weren’t too keen on it either) and he did not like being alone.

When Bijou passed away we thought about getting another pet but decided we didn’t want to deal with the boarding issue when we had to travel. Then we thought there must be plenty of other small dog owners who have the same temporary pet care problem, and that is how our custom pet care idea was born.

We have been small dog owners (miniature and toy poodles) for more than 40 years. We are keenly aware of the special needs of smaller dogs and are cautious when they are in our care. Your pet will get supervised exercise outside but will be protected from aggressive animals and predators at all times.

About this sitter:
Retired couple with lots of experience with small dogs. Let us pamper your pet while you are away, your pet will appreciate it.

How long have you been a dog lover? Tell us about your history with dogs.

We both grew up with dogs as pets and have had them for most of our married lives. Our first pet together was Tony, a black miniature poodle that joined our family on Valentine's Day 1963. After Tony we had Danny, a champagne toy poodle who was the childhood pet of our two children. After the children left the nest and Danny passed we had Biojou, a very small apricot toy (teacup) poodle. Bijou enriched our lives for fifteen years before he passed. The reason we have not replaced Bijou is explained in our profile as "the Bijou story".

What would you like to know about a dog before sitting him or her? Do you have any breed preferences?

We pretty much like all dogs but prefer to care for the smaller ones. We prefer not to care for aggressive dogs or those with a history of being overly destructive.

Are you comfortable administering medication?

Sure but we would prefer to care for well animals and would prefer to only administer maintenance medication. It is not that we are uncomfortable administering medication but more that we are concerned with maintaining a healthy environment for future client's pets.

How much time do you plan on spending with my dog each day?

Your dog will live in our home with us and be continually part of our activities. We will spend frequent times playing with your pet and accompanying them outside for exercise but generally they will be allowed free access while we go about our daily activities.

If you have a backyard, please describe it.

We have a small fenced back yard that is mostly concrete but there is a small flea free artificial grass potty area as well. The yard has plenty of space for smaller dogs to exercise and it is designed to be easily cleaned.

Where will my dog sleep?

We try to provide a comfortable and secure environment for your dog to sleep in. If your dog is crate trained they may feel more secure sleeping in their own crate but if they are accustomed to sleeping on your bed and they feel comfortable on our bed that is fine too. We observe the dog and they usually let us know what they prefer.

Where will you take my dog on walks? Tell me about it.

We live on a quiet street and your dog may be taken for walks during the day when other dogs are not around. We want to limit your dog's exposure to larger and possibly aggressive dogs so we will not walk it in parks or take it to a dog park.

George & Kay are such nice people and they are great with dogs. They waited up for us to pick up our dog after 10 pm when our flight was delayed for couple of hours. They even gave our dog a bath. Would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a caring dog sitter.

Could not have been happier with George and Kay. They were so friendly and responsive, but most importantly they took great care of our little yorkie. We are already looking forward to Liko's next stay!

Another great stay with George and Kay! They were so helpful with accommodating our little one over the New Year. I was able to enjoy my birthday at ease knowing Bronx was in their care.

George & Kay are AMAZING! If you have that spoiled little doggie in your life that you can't bear to be without, rest assured that George & Kay will pamper your little one like Grandpa and Grandma spoil the grandkids. Our little Bear was so happy and we are now booking another stay.

George and Kay are wonderful people and we felt totally comfortable and confident to leave our dog with them without any hesitation. They gladly showed us around their home and facilities for the dogs, and explained their practice of caring for them. We would highly recommend them as dog sitters, and would use them again ourselves if the need arises.

George and Kay were very pleasant. Smokey immediately felt comfortable as he began playing with toys they had and running laps all around their living room. We did not feel as if Smokey had restrictions, as George and Kay reassured us that Smokey's needs will be met. When we use this service again we will chose George and Kay!

Thank you for the review, we really enjoyed our time with Smokey. George & Kay
