A true dog whisperer! Robin put me completely at esse when I was leaving my pups with her. She was very patient with all my questions and concerns and greeted them with love. Gave me extremely helpful tips when I returned to pick them up and I could tell the pups were happy. Best petsitter ever!

With a wedding to go to, on Labor Day weekend, we found ourselves, unable to find a neighbor to help us with our Dog. We posted to Facebook, we needed help and someone suggested Rover, so we did a search and reviewed a dozen or more individuals that provided boarding.

We chose Robin and husband, based on proximity, reviews and the energy (between their dogs and ours) at the meet and great. I could go ...

Our Ruffy stayed with Robin for the first time and he had a great time. He loved playing with his new furry friends. After he got home, he kept going into his traveling cage so he could go back and play with his new buddies. We will definitely leave Ruffy again with Robin. Thank you Robin for taking such good care of our Ruffy.

Come Play With Fun Loving Bichons

Dog loving family with decades of experience, with all types of dogs: large, small, and puppies. Dogs are rarely left unattended, as we work from home. Show dog standard cleaning equipment ensures dogs are dry after their multiple daily walks. We guarantee that doggy massages are awesome. Vari Kennels are used for meals and sleeping, otherwise dogs are out, running and playing. Last minute bookings can be accommodated. Seven of our Bichons live here full ...

What Robin would like to know about your dog

Your dog(s) only need to bring their collars, food, meds, and kennel(s) (if they are bigger than a Bichon). We have a more than enough leads, bowls, toys, and the like.

If you wish to bring a reminder of home, a couple of toys and or some bedding would do the trick. However, for most of our clients, these homely items were almost completely ignored. Our dogs' toys, doggy lounging areas, and just being under our office desks, have been much more interesting.

If your dog(s) are super strong chewers, we have a few toys that are suitable, due to our Chanel. But it would be best if your dog(s) bring their own super strong chew items, to ensure they don't get into trouble.

If your dog(s) has special needs, let us know at the 'meet and greet', prior to the stay. We have had all sorts come through our door, over the last 40 years, and each time, it's been perfectly fine. There really isn't a bad breed, or a bad dog; we are happy and confident to sit every one. If any dog is having severe social issues, we might segregate him/her from the other dogs, because we will ensure everyone is safe, without exception.

About Robin's Home

When Robin watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
There are many nearby walks, just out the door (see pictures), and when we all hop in the car, within a short drive. Our dogs tend to walk a minimum of 2 to 3 times per day. So we do try to change things up whenever possible, for everyone involved.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
All our dogs sleep in their own kennels. They love their kennels, because they know they can stretch out, paws in the air, and sleep, without concern of any cheeky pranksters nearby. We have a few extra small and medium sized Vari Kennels, but if your dog(s) need intermediate sized kennels or larger, please bring those kennels with you, as you drop everyone off. We will attach water bowls to the kennels, if missing, as we have more than enough. All dogs must be able to remain comfortable, drink clean fresh water at any time they desire, 24/7, and eat their food in safety.

If your dog(s) are new to the kennel experience and the benefits that follow, please feel free to let us know you would like some kennel training. When other dogs watch our pack naturally take advantage of their own personal kennel throughout the day, it is a natural doggy experience to learn by doing as the dog pack does, and transition to being kennel trained.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Our dogs spend pretty much all day with us, with the exception of being kennelled while we run an errand once or twice a week. They run around room to room, chasing toys and balls we throw, or they just hangout somewhere in our offices, on a pillow, cushion, or a bit of floor. At our feet, under our desks, is a hot favourite for many past clients.

We have previously sat dogs with a few discipline issues. Because we are good doggy communicators, while those dogs stay with us, without any training, many of those discipline issues just went away. We do not guarantee the excellent behaviour continues when dogs return home, but over the years, it has been know to occur from time to time.

If you are a repeat client, looking to book another stay, but our calendar shows us as unavailable for the dates you wish, let us know anyway. Because a known dog is already integrated with our pack and gets along with all of our dogs individually, your dog is therefore much less work and risk, as compared to a new unknown dog. So we might still be able to fit you in.
