About Charles

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 40 year old self-employed professional working from home. My work is now focused strictly full-time on the overnight dog care business. We have plenty of space (4,600 sqft on 4 acres) and lots of love + attention to share. Your dog will go home happy and healthy after their vacation here! All ages + sizes may be welcome after an in-home meeting! Premium sensitive food, whole-food supplements & treats all-inclusive, if desired. We have plenty of space freely accessible inside and fenced outside for cage-free doggie comfort!

Food & airborne allergy friendly! HEPA air purifiers in every room plus central high-efficiency whole-house allergy filtration. Memory foam orthopedic beds in various sizes throughout the house. Blankets+mats laundered daily using the sanitize cycle. Our home is a cleaner, healthier, safer, more comfortable, home+yard all-inclusive environment that truly cannot be compared to any kennel or "luxury" boarding facility.

For well-behaved, calm and continent darlings, the entire main level of the house is open to them. I've made 1 of the guest bedrooms and bathrooms into a 200+ sq ft doggie suite that can be reserved/gated as a private retreat for only your dog(s). Otherwise this area stays open for any dog who wants to hang out in there. We also have special areas that can be set up for major incontinence, aggression requiring total seclusion, and post-surgical guests. A variety of flexible spaces exist that can be set up to suit most any special need or request.

We can venture out for long or short daytime walks...dependent on the dog's desire, age and ability...either around the property for just a few minutes...or in the quiet neighborhoods surrounding the house for 30-45 minutes. We have the flexibility to walk anytime during the day when weather permits.

The yard is 6' fenced including a wrap-around deck for daytime sunbathing (both sun and shade areas all day long), patio, trail and wooded area. Our 4 acre property has a wide variety of terrain for exploration in both fenced and un-fenced areas (with leashes, of course). Back yard and deck can be accessed without the use of stairs for dogs with mobility concerns. No stairs are required anywhere inside or outside of the house with the exception of just 1-step down into the carpeted sunken Great Room.

We have a preference toward senior dogs ages 7-17, but can sometimes accommodate younger, more active dogs depending upon the special needs of any existing reservations. For most dogs under the age of 7, trial daycare day will be required to best assess the dog's ability to adapt to our very low-key, relaxed senior dog environment. We have younger dogs that are thrilled to stay here, and we have had others that get bored because the seniors don't often run around or play.

Rates start at $45 and can range up to $60+ in some special circumstances. Some dogs (such as those with special needs, mobility issues, accidents or marking indoors, highly specialized feeding routines or 3+ feedings daily, multiple medications, injections, extreme separation anxiety, dogs requiring a private room or other time consuming situations will usually have higher rates based on the time and complexity of the services required. We can discuss the exact needs at a scheduled Meet and Greet at my house to determine a fair price for the services you and your dog require. Rates may be higher for some holidays and weekends. Let's discuss your specific times/dates and any specific type of care that your dog requires. I'm available most any time to meet with you and your dog(s) at my home. Flexibility and patience allows me to handle nearly any type of special care or attention that your dogs requires.

Charles provided an excellent boarding experience for our dog Buddy. He really enjoyed his time with the other dogs in Charles' home. Charles provided regular updates and photos that gave us real peace of mind. I would definitely recommend Charles as a great caretaker, particularly for senior dogs. We will definitely look to have our dog board with Charles in the future. Thank you Charles !
As always, Petey came home from Charles' house happy and healthy! He made new friends and was well looked after. We couldn't be happier!
This was Lexie's first time with Charles. We were very pleased. She seemed happy when we picked her up. He sent pictures every day.
Charles is simply amazing with the senior pups and a wonderful resource for issues related to senior care. I would highly recommend him to give your senior pup the best loving care possible. He kept me updated with pictures/notes and even offered some great suggestions in dealing with my senior pup's issues when I came to pick him up. If you want the best possible care for your senior pup, Charles is definitely the person for the job!
As always Charles did a great job with our high-maintenance dog Tucker. She is old and Charles didn't even blink at dealing with all her medication, her finicky eating or her terror of fireworks on Fourth of July weekend. It's so nice to be able to go out of town and not worry once about whether the dog is ok.
Charles is fantastic! Highly recommend his services especially if you have an elder dog. He took such good care of my 12 1/2 year old Duncan.
I am always confident and comfortable leaving my dog's with Charles. He sends me regular updates during my absence, which is very assuring. This time, my dog's didn't care that I left, which indicates they are comfortable with Charles. I hope he is in business for a long time to come. I would never want to leave my dogs elsewhere and I recommend him to everyone!
Charles is flat out wonderful! We traveled abroad for several weeks and had Charles watch after our 10 yr old, Shih-Tzu mix, Spectre, with special needs due to a previous back injury. Charles is very accommodating, allowing us to drop off Spectre very early before our flight and bring with him his padded steps for jumping up and down from furniture. We knew Spectre was well taken care of and enjoying himself through the frequent updates with pictures Charles provided. We couldn't have asked for someone better. We will definitely be back!
I know Newnan is in great hands when he goes to vacay with Charles! Charles has a gentle soul that I think puts dogs and humans at ease! :) He is VERY knowledgable on dog behavior and their needs. Charles goes above and beyond to make sure your dogchild has all the comforts of home. Thank you, Charles, for all you do!
My almost seven year old Bella doesn’t fit the description of most senior, blind or ailing dogs on Charles’ website, but he has been a great substitute parent for her. She loves his deck, the walks around his verdant yard and neighborhood, and the chance to sleep by his bed. Highly recommended.
Charles is a fantastic host. His place is clean, comfortable, and nice. He has a fenced in yard too. I know my Luna enjoyed her time there as she fell asleep right when she got back home. I feel 100% comfortable in rebooking with Charles in the future, and I 100% recommend him if you're considering it. Thanks Charles!
Charles takes the time to make sure our puppy has everything he needs. He takes great care of Silas, and Silas loves to go there. Silas is so excited every time!
Charles T is the BEST!!!! He treats our boy like his own.
Charles is wonderful to our pets and us as well. Our dogs have always been very happy when they come home from his house and they have stayed with him for one day play dates to week-plus long vacays. It's so nice to know that our beloved pets will not be stressed or anxious when we go away. Charles takes the time to ask questions and learn about the dogs' needs, which is especially important for older dogs. Thank you Charles!!
He's the best.
I have two "senior" dogs, one is 12, the other just turned 16. Our 16 year-old has been blind for 4 years now. Charles truly cares for our dogs like they are his own. With all the special needs they have, I can't imagine anyone else taking care of them. So, yes, Charles is "pawsome".
Charles takes care of Pete like we would. That says a lot. Sweet, old Pete requires medicine several times each day and we know he is in great hands when he visits with Charles.
I recently boarded my 4 yr old dachshund with Charles. If you know Dachshunds, you know how stubborn and hyper -sensitive they can be. Charles was very kind and patient with Heidi.
I was so pleased that Charles took into careful consideration Heidi’s compatibility with the other dogs in his care. He texted me daily updates and funny pictures. I could tell that Heidi felt comfortable, happy and safe. It was the first time that I left Heidi without worrying about her. She bonded with Charles and even slept on his bed at night! It was the best experience ever and I highly recommend Charles.
Best care giver!
Charles treats dogs like his very own. And sends email updates everyday!
Simply put, you're the best!
Our blind senior citizen has the best cuddle buddies here.
Charles, what else can I say other than, you are the best thing that's happen to our dogs since we moved to Atlanta. I can never say thank you enough.
Thanks so much for doing such a great job taking care of Benji while I was away.
We could not be more pleased with Charles T's care of our boy,the daily pics with notes were heart warming and reassuring.From the moment we met it was apparent that Charles Tand Shadow would be fine.He is kind loving and compassionate.(Shadow has separation anxiety)we are extremely happy that Charles allowed Shadow to feel at home with him.We have, and will definitely recommend his services and use him again and again.GREAT JOB Charles T.
Charles is the best dog sitter in the world. He cares for your dog like he does his own, with love, affection and attention, patience, and kindness. He attends to their every need, whether it be special diet, meds, or sleep needs. He pampers and loves on them so they feel like they are part of his family. I highly recommend his service as he has been so great with both of my dogs. He is also an expert with dogs with special needs and elderly dogs with age issues. Thank you Charles for taking such good care of my fur babies!
I really appreciate how loving and caring Charles is with our old Pete. We know he's in good hands while he's at Charles' house. And, we love the picture updates!!
Charles and crew are wonderful. My blind dog Benji always enjoys his stays and is well taken care of. It is so great to know that when I travel that I can leave him where he is loved and taken excellent care of. Highly recommended!! Definitely five stars!!
Great stay, as always!
We have a 10+ year old lab, Pete, with some medical issues and felt great leaving him with Charles. He managed Pete's 4x daily medication and sent us pictures of Pete relaxing and having a good time. It made us feel good knowing Pete was well taken care of. We will definitely send Pete to his new buddy Charles' house again!
Charles was great. We received daily updates with photos. We'll definitely be relying on Charles in the future.
I have a 16 year old lab and Charles went above and beyond to take great care of Bailey! Highly recommend!
Charles kept me updated with cute photos and notes about my dog’s day. Highly recommended.
