Ginger and Bob took care of our fur babies, Bailey (4 1/2 year-old shih tzu/poodle mix) and Dottie (3 1/2 year-old schnoodle), in their home from 7/29/18 to 9/17/18 and took such good care of them! In July 2018, I was diagnosed with lung cancer (I've never smoked) and had surgery on 7/31/18 to remove the tumor (along with 2/3 of my right lung). After ...
They were great. They handle my little Yorkie when had a seizure. They gave me all the details I needed to know she was okay. That let me enjoyed the rest of my vacation. Thanks so much for watching Taffy and Bella.
Bob and Ginger were great. They sent me a bunch of pictures each day that they had my little Rizzo. She was very happy in all of the photos. She came home whining that she didn't have playmates to hang out with at home! My only suggestion for improvement would be to not send group texts for privacy reasons.

What Ginger would like to know about your dog
In order to get to know your dog as much as possible and to provide the highest level of care, I developed a 5-page questionnaire that targets various areas including personality, exercise, nutrition, and medical care.
While we don't have breed, gender, or size preferences, we do have several requirements:
Dogs must be current on vaccinations;
Dogs weighing over 20 pounds must be able to climb up and down the stairs by themselves;
We almost always have at least 5 dogs in the house, so if your dog is uncomfortable around other dogs, s/he will not like it here;
All dogs must be clean and free from odor; otherwise, a $20 bathing fee will be assessed.
All dogs must be protected against fleas and ticks
Most parents want to know what their dogs should bring for their vacation. Our guests are encouraged to pack as few things as possible. The basics are
food (we'd be grateful if you would measure your dog's meals in baggies)
treats (no rawhide, please)
Please, no crates, toys, bedding, or beds. We have plenty of everything! Blankets are o.k., but please note they may get torn and/or soiled during dog play.
