My dog was taken care of so well by this lovely couple. They are true animal lovers and treated my doggie like their own. They have such a calm, kind energy in their house.

Finn our 11 pound poodle had a great stay with Shirley and family. They took him for walks and followed his sleep routines. They shared photos during his time there and rarely left him (maybe not at all) the whole time. Fun was happy and himself after his stay with them. We will definitely be back! Finn also got along great with their two smaller pups!

We really enjoyed having Finn.

Our two kiddos stayed with Shirley and Lee for the day so we could go to the Mall of America, as we were traveling in our rv and couldn’t leave them in the heat. These are wonderful folks!! They love dogs and our two didn’t want to leave their dog-friendly home or them. Plus, their house backs up to a park for walks and they are home all day. Leave your dogs here ...

Thank you. It was our pleasure. We all had a wonderful time. We wish you lived nearby.

What Shirley would like to know about your dog

No breed preference. I would like to know their typical behavior and comfort level with other dogs so I know what to expect. Some dogs like attention right away and others are more shy and need space. I want to respect their temperament and do what we can to reduce any anxieties they might have.

Things I would like to learn about your dog:
-What is the feeding schedule?
-Any aversion to certain things? (i.e. other dogs, small children etc.)
-Any likes/dislikes?
-How far can your dog run/walk for and how long?
-Any medications?
-Does your dog run away? Possibly an escape artist?
-Can your dog navigate stairs?
-How often does your dog need a potty break?
