Your dog will love staying here!

My heartfelt affection for dogs stems from early childhood. Dogs were integral to my family, and I naturally extend compassion and understanding toward them. My desire is to offer a safe, enriching place for them to go while their family is away--and I feel lucky to be able to do so!

Each dog has a unique personality, and my mission is to help them thrive through personal attention and quality care. I love bringing out ...

What Matt would like to know about your dog

At our meet-and-greet, I’ll ask about what makes your dog unique, and go through any and all concerns you may have about leaving them in my care. Does your dog ever have separation anxiety? What has made past stays most successful? What is your dog’s background, including any noteworthy history from before they came into your life? We’ll go over dietary restrictions, medical needs, and everything else related to health, happiness, and safety that will help me know how best to proceed. Of course, I’ll update you throughout the stay, and contact you with any questions that arise while you’re away.

When Matt watches your pet

Our day will be fun-filled from morning to night. My dogs are welcoming, kind, and loving, and will enjoy playing with our guest in our yard and indoors. My focus will be on ensuring that your pup feels completely at home and at ease; we’ll go for one-on-one walks, and I’ll dispense treats, belly rubs, and ear-scratching as needed! Affectionate bonding is always important. The specifics of our schedule will largely be based on your usual routine, to ensure a harmonious transition to and from our home.
