She is amazing and took really good care of our dog. We were still nearby but couldnt take him with us. She let us come by and see him and still take him for walks. I enjoyed getting pictures of him while he was there. Knowing that he was in good care made our moving process much easier. We will for sure use her again if we need to as well as tell our friends ...

I have a 17 year old female lab/pointer who is a special needs dog due to her age, and many people would not want to take her needs on. Sammy (Samantha) has never been boarded outside of our home before. I had to go out of state to a funeral and was in need of a sitter. I was very concerned due to Sammy's needs and her age and how hard this new experience ...

Val and Michelle S.

What Val and Michelle would like to know about your dog

I like to know your pets routine. There is comfort in routine for your pet while you are gone. I need to know if they nip or bite and if they are safe to be around other people/animals. Have they been spayed/neutered? Do they know basic commands (sit/stay/come)? Are they destructive when left alone? Are they an escape artist? Will they eat anything unattended? The more I know about your pet the better quality of service I can provide.
