My 2 fur babies had a fabulous time! How do I know this because their temperaments haven't changed they look happy healthy they're playing just the way they did when I left. I received photos videos of my pups the whole time I was gone. Riitta you are the best thank you thank you will be seeing you again!

Lucy, my Cocker Spaniel mix, is a very loving dog with all people, but ...

Riitta and I have been friends for 28 years and I can tell without a doubt that she is a huge animal lover. She has owned many dogs and other pets over the years and I've seen her love and devotion to all the animals that she encounters.

When Riitta watches your pet

There are many miles of nature trails around us and numerous parks and a lake front beach that I can explore with your dog. Depending on your dog's activity level, we can walk, hike, jog and / or run, if so desired. There is a large well laid out home (almost 3,000 sf, 4 large bedrooms) situated on two acre property and a fenced in deck with plenty of space to play with a ton of toys, cuddle on a sofa or to just chill out in an own private corner if tired. Your dog will always be supervised and kept secure when outdoors.
