Jillian was extremely responsive and took amazing care of our baby boy. We would rather have nobody else in the world, but Jillian, take care of our Sherlock.

Jillian was the best vacation dog mom ever. She took care of our Bear like she was her own. She did a “meet and greet” a week in advance to make sure Bear was going to be good with the rest of her crew which made it an easy translation for all of us when we dropped her off before we headed out for vacation. She sent us several videos while we were away and ...

Jillian watched our dog,Maggie, for two weeks. She was amazing! We felt like we had great updates, pictures, and video throughout Maggie’s stay. This was important for us. We so appreciated the love and attention she gave Maggie!!

K-9 Quixote Ranch. Dripping Springs

Helloooo dog parents, June, 2018

My husband and I have a small "ranchette" that sits on 10 acres in Dripping Springs, just a stones throw from Pedernales Falls State Park. We are CRAZY dog lovers...well, really crazy animal lovers... but dogs are at the top of the food chain around here. (You can see pictures of all our rover guests and our own pack of wags on instagram: @k9quixote)

My husband is a cabinet ...

What Jillian would like to know about your dog

The good, the bad, and the ugly....don't hold back!
I want to know what makes your fur-baby special, and what your specific concerns are regarding their stay at our house.

My Rates:
***Current clients, I had to raise my rates for future clients, but don't fret, your current rate is locked in and will never change! I will modify your cost to reflect your rate at the time of booking.

***Future clients, I LOVE all of our rover doggies, and am so honored when clients keep bringing their babes back to us, so I want to recipricate that loyalty by locking in your initial rate in perpetuity. This means your stay rate will never increase from your first booking.

About Jillian's Home

When Jillian watches your pet

Some background.
I had a wonderfully eccentric and complicated pitbull, Doofus, that I raised from 5wks old to 11 years old. I loved him more than anything, and had an impossible time finding suitable kenneling/sitter situations for him that didn't cost a fortune thanks to his size (he was 110lbs), his breed, and his temperament (not always dog friendly). I also always worried about him being neglected, not getting enough exorcise, having his routine interrupted, and care takers not heeding my instructions to the letter. Every time I had to leave him over the years it was a sad, anxiety ridden experience for both of us.... so I want to provide the kind of dog care that I struggled to find: loving; safe; dependable; individually tailored; affordable.

This means:
*When your dog is here they are family:
-They can snuggle on the couch
-They can sleep in our bed
-They can sit on my feet while I make breakfast
-They can help me dig holes in the garden
-They can go on outings to home Depot with my husband.
-They can go hiking with us at Pedernales Falls
-They can go to Jester King for a pint and pizza
....basically, they will just be part of our lives....at the very center.

*They are guaranteed exorcise, outdoor adventure, play time (dog and human), treats, snuggles, and way more human companionship than any kennel and most dog sitters can usually provide. We can also provide routine and reinforcement for training commands and behaviors that you guys work on at home.

*No breed or size restriction:
-In fact, I'm a sucker for giant dairy cow, meat head dogs :)
-We love and have experience in some capacity with bully breeds, Rotts, Shepherds, Mastiffs, Dobies, Danes, Pyranese, etc.
-And I love the littles and everyone in-between! I grew up with Dachsunds, and have Beagle, Aussie, Westie, Frenchie, Boston, and mini poodle nieces and nephews!
-The only condition is that they be able to get along with, or at least tolerate, our 3.

*We will accommodate any special needs, rules, routines, and instructions:
-If your dog gets medicine 3xs a day, no problem
-If your dog must always be leashed when outside, no problem.
-If your dog is friendly off leash but can't meet dogs on leash, no problem
-If your dog is super friendly but gets weird about sharing toys, bones, etc., no problem
-If your dog needs to eat separately, no problem
-If your dog needs to be kenneled when left alone, or likes to kennel at bed time, no problem
-If your dog gets a chewie at breakfast or bedtime, no problem.
-If your dog likes belly rubs but hates his ears touched, no problem.
....you probably get the point.

*As for food:
-We recommend/welcome you to bring your own food, treats, chews, kennel, bed, dog bowls, etc.
-Or we will provide food for an additional daily fee.
-We buy Taste of the Wild grain-free kibble, and mix with a heaping spoonful of Taste of the Wild grain-free canned wet food and a little warm water.

*As for truly special needs, like deaf, blind, injured, arthritic, ancient...
-We're willing to accommodate them if we can, and if they will be happy, safe, and comfortable in our house with our trio.

*We're also willing to accommodate more than one dog, again, as long as they will be happy, safe, and comfortable in our house with our dogs.

BASICALLY, contact me and we can figure just about anything out!

*Currently only offering dog care to one dog family at a time. Unless, I know the dogs involved well, and have discussed/cleared overlapping visits with all parties involved ahead of time.

*No major time constraints on pick-up and drop-off as long as we agree on a time in advance.
