Highly recommend Tom and Shelley. They have a great setup for dogs, with lots of room for them to run around and play. Tom and Shelley made the process super easy. Will be using them again.

My dog had a great stay. Tom, Shelly and Shari were great hosts and have an awesome property for dogs to have their own vacation.

$20 Doggie day care!

We have cheerfully invited and cared for nearly 500 dogs since we have begun with Rover. We have nearly an acre of grass and running room for your dog(s). We have 3 people who live on the property (all who have had background checks done of Rover) for your safety and security. Our expansive grass lawns are heaven made for dogs, in fact our endearing Rover guests have nicknamed us "Doggie Disneyland". Check out ...

What Tom & Shelly would like to know about your dog

About the only concern we would have about any dog is:
1. Is your dog friendly (or will it bite?) Our goal is to have a temporary friend(s) for our dogs, Checotah and Bear, to play with. Checotah is very docile and mellow and both Bear and Checotah love to play but will respectfully give a dog plenty of space if he/she just wants to chill.
2. The front of our house is gated and we want to make sure the dog is not so small it can squeeze through the bars of the gate. That is why we don't accept puppies or dogs less than 20 pounds. We want your dog to be safe and so do you.

When Tom & Shelly watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
Yes, we live right behind Lime Ridge which is a great place to take walks via the iron horse trail which runs behind the back yard. But, given the past experience of the Rover stays, the dogs love just hanging and running / playing in our massive backyard.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
There are lots of choices given the size of the property. Our dog sleeps both inside and outside (depending on the weather) and we are okay with that arrangement assuming your dog is potty trained and friendly. However, we also have multiple buildings on the property such as a converted garage now doggie room / tool storage, a guest house, barn and the fenced dog run. All of been used to house guest animals in the past during our backyard gatherings or Rover stays. We also have doggie beds and lots of packing blankets, and carpet in the garages for them to sleep on.

Time I'll spend with your dog:
One of us (Tom/Shelly/Shari/Lauren/Drew) is here during the day and they always have Checotah and Bear to play with, as well.
