Shirley took good care of our 15 year old dog at her house. She sent us daily updates with pictures of her walks and responded quickly to all our communications. Highly recommended!

Thank you so much for the great review. I appreciate you taking the time.

Dogs are happy here!

I have been boarding dogs in my home since 2007 and have many very happy customers. I have three small dogs of my own and one cat. The dogs have access to my fenced back garden at all times. I am retired and spend my time training and competing in agility. My dogs have free access to the living areas of my home and are able to run in and out of the back yard ...

What Shirley would like to know about your dog

I would like to know if the dog is spayed or neutered and whether it has any aggressive tendencies. I do not take unneutered males.

When Shirley watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
I walk my dogs around the neighborhood in the morning after breakfast and at night before bed. I usually walk the dogs separately - the boarding dog(s) and then my dogs. I also take them to the park for a run in the late afternoon when it is cooler several times a week.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Anywhere it wants.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I am retired from business and am at home most of the day.

My clients' dogs are treated as if they were my own. They receive the same loving care and attention. I take them for walks around the neighborhood in the morning after breakfast and in the evening before bed. In addition, we go to a local park about 3 miles away for about one hour's walk 3 to 4 times a week. I am retired from business so I am at home the majority of the day.
