I cut Mateo’s stay short simply because I could not get Stephen to send me pictures or updates on the stay. It was like pulling teeth. I was apprehensive about leaving him because Stephen had several large dogs and Mateo is a small sized dog. So receiving updates and pictures would have eased my mind.

Stephen is very flexible and my kid-dog is always happy and full when I pick him up. I have used Stephen several times and will continue too.
Thanks for taking good care of my boy and making him comfortable at your home!

Perfect backyard & dog-loving care.

...that's what your dog will have while he stays with me. My two dogs, Jake (a terrier mix ) and Jenny ( a basset hound mix ), both rescues, normally remain in their own areas of the house, and only interact with dogs that I know very well, from repeated stays with me.

When Stephen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We can walk through the subdivision I'm in. A couple small inclines, but mostly flat, and very little traffic.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
If comfortable, there are beds on the carpeted floor next to my bed, in a bed or crate brought with you if they prefer, or really wherever they would like, as long as its safe.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Most of every day, as I'm home most all the time.
