Jim was great for our dog Rudy! Jim has a great yard for dogs and was quick to communicate. Rudy returned tired and happy. We can't wait to bring him back!

Traveling with dogs can be a real challenge. David and I wanted to go on a longer mt. bike ride while in Tucson that we couldn't take the dogs on. It was too hot to leave them in our van so we looked on to find a good dog sitter for a day. Jim came highly rated along with another dog sitter. As we drove into town we stopped to meet with Jim ...

The Irish Setters were well treated by the Labrador’s and by Jim. They were happy, energetic, loved the wide open space they had and seemed to think very highly of Mr. Jim C. I was so pleased with the thoughtful status reports and photos during my absence. Thank you!!

Almost A Dog Park!

West University Doggie Boarding & Daycare is more than just dog sitting or boarding, we are our own private mini-dog park! Plenty of room for active doggies to run and chase and stretch their legs! Located on a city lot only 60' wide by 180' deep, our guest dogs scamper from one corner of the front yard to the far back corner of the back lot, log a lot of miles running and chasing and ...

What Jim would like to know about your dog

Need to know dog's disposition, and whether it will get along with my very accommodating host dog. Doggies who are escape-prone do not work well here, a number of past guests have been determined to wiggle through my white picket fence out front. A meet and greet prior to booking is very important.

When Jim watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We don't even have to leave our fully fenced property for doggies to get lots of exercise ! The front yard is connected by an 85' long internal driveway to a separate lot out back which has become it's own dog park. Doggies learn the route, where they can open it up and zoom from front to back. Active doggies who like to run and chase usually go home very tired.
Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Many choices. Have multiple dog beds, comfy (covered) chairs, cool ceramic tile floor. Very comfortable environment for doggies Guest dogs find their most comfortable place and tend to hang out there.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I work from home, generally with dogs 24/7 unless I have to dash to grocer for more dog food !
