Heather has always been an animal lover. For years she has been helping dog owners in the time of need. She has been a caregiver in the time of floods, fires, and even special circumstances which would otherwise result in the owner losing ownership of their beloved pets.
In my personal experience, she helped me when I needed to get my dog spayed. Heather took her to the appointment and properly cared for her for ...

Heather and I worked together for almost two years at a doggie daycare and boarding facility. She is one of the most caring and loving people I've ever met. She is the only person I trust watching all three of my fur babies! She always has the animals best interest at heart. She has worked with animals for nearly ten years because that is her passion. Any animal in her care will have the best ...

We live in a 3 story home with tons of space! Our home ...

What Heather would like to know about your dog

Are they crate trained? (I prefer watching dogs who are but it is not a must)
Do they have any known behavioral issues?
Are they ok with cats? (If no, it is fine, we will separate OUR cats from you pup)
Do they have any known allergies?
Are they ok with other dogs?
Are they food aggressive?
Are they toy aggressive?
Are there any spots they do not not like to be touched or are sensitive to?
Do they get on furniture/beds? (I prefer they do not but we will accommodate your dog either way)
Are there any training issues you are going through currently with your pet and would like us to work on with them during their stay so we do not confuse your pet?

About Heather's Home

When Heather watches your pet

Your pup(s) will have a great time staying with us! They can roam the back yard hunting for squirrels. There's more than a big enough carpet for them to roll around on in the main livingroom. There are a variety of toys, bones, treats, dog beds, blankets, etc to make your pup feel at home (only given with owner’s discretion). They can play with the other dogs or if they prefer they can just hang out and do their own thing (under supervision of course). We can take them on strolls through our neighborhood as well. They will be monitored the entire time they are outside on potty breaks. Under NO circumstance your pup will not be left outside unsupervised or be out longer than needed if it’s too cold. They will eat separately from other boarding dogs or our own pets.

Kitties will stay in their own enclosures completely separate from boarding dogs. They will be given tons of love, scratches under the chin, toys to play with as well as human interaction with play (such as strings or laser lights). They will have a clean sanitized litter box and a clean food and water dish during their stay. Their litter box will be cleaned everyday (as many times as necessary).

All crates and pet enclosures will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized before each pet check-in. Each enclosure will be swept, mopped, and/or wiped down everyday for the duration of their stay. They will be given clean bowls and fresh water in between each meal. Pet belongings (beds, blankets, sweaters, etc) that become soiled during their stay will be washed immediately and then placed back with your pet.

We will take pictures and videos and send you regular updates of your dog or kitty cat!
