We will love and care for your dogs as our own, they become part of our family. They will get lots of tummy rubs, play time and cuddle time.
We will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable leaving your fur-baby with us. We'll send you a photo or video daily to assure you that your dog is enjoying their time with us.
Angela and Luis are RETIRED! So they will give your furbaby all their love and attention all day, every day.
Your dog will get at least 4 potty breaks per day, daily walks, supervised play time in our fully fenced back yard, and lots of love and attention!
If your dog stays with us for 6 nights or more, they get a complimentary bath!
When booking a stay, please let us know drop off and pick up times.
Drop off and pick up times can be any time between 8:00am and 9:00pm daily.
We may make exceptions on a case by case basis, especially for last minute bookings. Once you pick a drop off/pickup time, please consider it an appointment and let us know in advance if the time changes for any reason.
About Sadia, Angela & Luis
Everyone who knows us knows that we LOVE animals. We make sure that they are well taken care of, happy and comfortable at all times. We volunteer and donate to several different dog/cat rescues in our area (DRSF, Paws2Care Coalition, 100+ Abandoned Dogs, AnimalAid, etc.) and we attend dog events throughout the year to support the animals.
Why We Love Dog Sitting
They make us smile every day, they are our loyal companions and they love us unconditionally, so they deserve our love in return. We started dog sitting in 2012 and we absolutely love it!!
Meet Our Dogs
We have 2 rescue Dachshunds. Snoopy is paraplegic due to IVDD, but he's pain free and happy. He uses a cart to go outside and scoots inside the house like a seal.
Snoopy suddenly became paraplegic at age 6. It was a devastating experience, but with patience, perseverance and some extra TLC, we learned to care for his special needs.
We had a 3rd Dachshund named Preston, who was also paraplegic, but he sadly passed away on 3/18/2017. We adopted him from Dachshund Rescue South Florida in 2012. He had been dumped at the shelter to be euthanized due to his paralysis. Since we already had experience caring for his needs, we fostered him for DRSF while he found a home, but we fell in love with him and decided to adopt him into our family.
About Our Yard
We have a fully fenced backyard (wood fence), it has mostly grass which we keep short and it's the perfect size for your furbaby to run around and play. The dogs are always supervised when out in the backyard.
Our experience administering medication
We can administer injected and oral medication (tablets, eye drops, ear drops, ointments, etc.). We have a doggie client with diabetes who requires 2 injections of insulin per day. If your dog needs injections, we will charge an extra $3 per night for your dog.
We are very diligent in administering or giving any medication needed.
