James and his wife took incredible care of Skeeter while I was on vacation. They took pictures of him playing with the other dogs, taking walks and brushing him as he is a shedding long hair german shepherd 1 year old pup. I know Skeeter was very comfortable there because he had that happy puppy smile on his face in all his pictures which took all my worries away. These folks go above and beyond ...

James was great with my dog Cleo! I left her for two weeks and he was sure to send pictures of her having a great time that made me feel comforted. She was worn out when I picked her up. I would definitely be using James again for boarding.

My wife and I love pets of all kinds, but have a special affinity for dogs. We care for dogs of all sizes like they were ours. I think you'll find that most care givers make that same claim, but you can see the difference with us in your pet's behavior. After a stay with us, your pet is happy and healthy, and when they come back, they're happy to see us. Some parents even ...

What James would like to know about your dog

Unfortunately, we are unable to care for aggressive breeds, due to the concern (real or imagined) of other guests' owners. We cannot care for Pit Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, or Chow-Chow breeds. We are so sorry for the inconvenience of owners of those particular breeds. We know that your pets are sweet, gentle babies. All others are welcome however, no matter how large or small.

When James watches your pet

We treat our pet guests as though they are children on vacation. They are fed according to their dietary needs and preference and are allowed to play, eat, swim, and rest at their convenience. We have shaded areas to rest, or they are allowed inside if they want to get out of the heat/cold. We can even walk them individually along our jogging path next to a flowing creek for additional exercise if you so choose. The pool is of course supervised, as is the entirety of the property. I work from home and so your pets will not be left unattended. Taking care of people and dogs from home is what I do, and will be here with your pets during the day. The safety, security, and happiness of your pet is our #1 priority.
