No Females in Heat
Being the owner of a German Shepherd working dog you must be choosy in selection. I feel Mandee understands the many drives Luca has. Her establishment is set up to accommodate Luca and many other breeds. Mandee genuinely takes interest in each dog and studies the dog's disposition. I drive the long distance to utilize her services because it's difficult to find someone like Mandee who has the skill, knowledge, and expertise of a working ...
We are so very grateful for Mandee and her family. Our dog, Digby, loves spending time at her house. It is a like a fun dog camp vacation for him. During this stay, we were unable to have access to email, text or internet yet we had absolutely no worries about Digby's care. Mandee did post pictures and comments during our time away anyway. I truly cannot say enough about the confidence, relief and gratitude ...
Mandee treats your dog like one of her own. Playing fetch, getting treats and welcoming them into her home. She’s a great sitter, we will definitely be using her again!

Why kennel your best friend when you can leave them with a loving family? My full time job is caring for your dog, and it is my goal to give them the best care possible. I have a large fully fenced 1.4 acre property and a cozy pet friendly home so whether your dog is active and adventurous, a snuggly couch potato, or something in ...
What Mandee would like to know about your dog
All dogs in my care are required to be fully up to date on vaccinations and current on flea medications. It is also important to note that I have two children (5 and 7 years old) and, although they are dog savvy, this may not be a good fit for every dog.
Every dog has his quirks and your dog's stay will be more enjoyable for everyone if I know them from the start. Are they food aggressive? Do they get anxious when left alone? Are they older and get fed up with more playful, younger dogs? Can they open doors? Do they go through cupboards in search of food? (our food cupboards can be shut with magnet locks if necessary) Are they an escape artist? Every dog is different and it is helpful to know in advance how best to care for them and keep them safe.
What should I bring for their stay?
The only thing they require is their food and a collar or harness. You can also bring an old blanket or towel that smells like home. If your dog uses their kennel as a safe space or is used to a different type than the wire crates that we have it is a good idea to bring that for them. I also recommend trimming their nails before they come, it gives them better traction on our floors and keeps playtime safer.
A note about kennels/crates
Many dogs love their crates (including ours) and find them a comfortable and safe space but no dog staying in our home is required to be crate trained or is left in one if they are uncomfortable with them.
