We left our German Shepherd in the loving hands of Penny and are so happy with the decision. She has lots of fosters for our dog to play with, which is a real treat for him since he is an only dog but LOVES to play with other dogs. Penny sent me updates every day and videos so I knew my dog was well provided for and having a great time. Highly recommend!

My dog Benjamin is a crazy, insecure, maladjusted little rescue dog, and Penny works wonders with him. She is patient and understanding, and knows exactly how to make him feel secure and loved. Most pet sitters are good with "normal" dogs and cats, but it was really important to me to find someone who can work with a special case like Benjamin.
I am so glad I stopped boarding my pets at kennels as well ...

To whom it may concern, I've had the pleasure of knowing Penny as a caregiver AND a dog lover, needless to say she is incredible! She doesn't shy away from any handicap a dog might have. And knowing a dog may have a handicap? Only produces more love from this incredible dog lover, I would highly recommend her!...Misty Fusco
