Kathy and Craig are the most wonderful dog sitters! They watched our senior yorkie for 2 nights and I did not have to worry about a thing! They knew what she needed and made her feel secure,
safe and loved. I'm so thankful to have found them!

Kathy and Craig are wonderful each time I drop my dog off with them, he loves it and they help me stay worry-free while I’m away!

Our dog, Tater, was very happy at Kathy’s place. I love her stay as Kathy’s number one concern is first safety, then happy dogs. We truly enjoyed all the photos! Thanks very much to you and your husband, Kathy. Rhonda Savage, DDS

Thank you Rhonda, Tater was one very fun girl!! Kathy & Craig Chastain

When Kathy watches your pet

We provide lots of outdoor exercise in our very large backyard & fenced hillside with trails cut through for running & play. We do not take dogs out to the streets for walks. We live in a secluded & safe neighborhood but our property size allows for lots of exercise and play.

All dogs sleep in a dog bed, dog pad or crate at the foot our bed. Some sleep on our bed if needed to make them feel at home. We want everyone close at hand if there were ever an emergency during the night. We have a well practiced emergency plan if ever needed.

We are retired and work from home, so pets have our companionship 24 hours a day. (Hopefully we all get to sleep about 8 hrs!) We treat guest dogs as we do our own - which means lots of petting, cuddling, lap sitting, and playtime in the yard.
