About June

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have loved animals since I was a small child. I was the child who would bring home all types of domestic and wild animals to try to keep as pets. I would have a small zoo if I had the space.

Dogs are my favorite animal! My husband and I love dogs. We have small dogs so we try to work with families of mostly small dogs. We usually will keep 2 guests or 3 if they are all from the same family. My husband and I provide care in our home for your dog/dogs.

We have an abundance of toys, and time for play. Belly rubs, and cuddling are never short in supply. My black schnauzer loves tug-o- war with other dogs more than life itself. We play a lot of ball too. We like to sit out on the patio with the dogs in the evenings if it's cool. And of course there is lots of lounging and netflix binge watching.

Guest dogs will have my dogs to play with, or one on one time with us if that is what works best for your pup. Sometimes cuddles on the couch suit the guest dog just fine.

We keep the water bowls clean and wash the dog bowls often. We also have plenty of extra ceramic and stainless bowls for guest dogs.

Let us know if your pup has separation anxiety, is food/toy aggressive to other dogs or is fearful in any way to strangers. We have numerous safety gates in place to keep all pets safe. I never feed guest dogs with resident dogs, or feed dogs together that don't know each other.

We allow dogs on the furniture. I have a cleaning lady who helps me keep the house clean and we keep throws on our leather furniture. We have a large stash of throws we wash and rotate.

We have all kinds of security gates, play pens, kennels and video camera's in place so we can keep an eye on any guests, even when we are away.

Our home is clean, smoke free and child free. Our house is a one story, completely dog friendly home. Should your dog/dogs prefer to sleep in a kennel I have multiple sizes available for guests, as well as comfortable furniture and dog beds around the house.

We are older so we do better with calmer dogs. I have energetic schnauzers but they play with each other and get the occasional walk or trip to the dog park. Chasing birds, squirrels or lizards in the backyard seems to satisfy them. They love toys and time snoozing on the couch. Our ideal guest would be similar to our dogs.

We can administer medications to your pets providing you give us written instructions. I have given pain shots to one of my own dogs.

If we had to run an errand, we would kennel all guest dogs to keep them safe.

We have 3 miniature schnauzers (all neutered and on flea/heart worm preventative & have all their shots.) We prefer our guests to be on a monthly heart worm/flea preventative so we can keep fleas and heart worms out of our soil, grass, etc.. In the summer months we treat the yard for fleas and other parasites. Because I have 3 pups of my own, 1-2 guest dogs are ideal, but we will take 3 guests if they are from the same family.

We have volunteered with Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston for the past 7 years and are very active with this rescue group. We have fostered & adopted from them as well as volunteering for special events and projects.

I've been through several basic training classes and have been working with The Rusty Project which provides dog training skills to volunteers of rescues. I have 50+ years experience with dogs and cats.

We will walk your dogs for free if it fits into our schedule. I like to do it on weekends with my husband, Sometimes if my husband is off during the day, he will walk them.

We prefer our guest dogs to be spayed/neutered unless the dog is a small puppy. Small natural males like Yorkie's are usually okay too. IF you dog is not house trained, please let me know up front so we can be prepared for that.

We live in a one story house with a dog door to the back yard and padlocks on the gate with a state of the art security system. When I have to go to work, I point security camera's at the dogs so I can watch them from my desktop.

We will provide pictures and texts of your dog/dogs visit so you can see they are having fun while you are away.

We can accommodate various special needs. Just let us know what your pup needs and we will tell you up front how we can help you.

One of the dogs I care for has cataracts and is almost blind, but she does very well here.

We can't wait to meet you and your fur-babies! Book your pups vacation with us now or Let's set up a meet and greet and see how that goes.

Thank you in advance for trusting us with your precious babies.

June was fabulous with my little Digger. He had never been away for so long and did beautifully -- I could tell by how easily and seamlessly he adjusted back to our regular routine when we got home. I also so appreciated the constant picture updates so that I knew that he was having a great time!! I will use her again if she is available.

June was great to work with. She was very prompt in her responses to me in my request for her to day sit my puppy. When I first met June, it was quite obvious that she loves dogs. She has (3) of her own. My puppy, Sofia, was welcomed right into the mix :) June sent me several pics and videos of my puppy playing throughout the day. Sofia appears to have been well taken care of and must have had a very busy fun filled day. When I picked her up (at almost 9pm (it was late), she was very tired. Kudos to June!!!

June and her husband were amazing to Sunny and Moon, they did great taking care of them! They were loving and kind.
Appears that dogs were well cared for...we love that they were in a home and not in a kennel somewhere... June was great to work with and available on short notice!! We highly recommend and will certainly use again!!
We were very impressed with June and her care and attention to our dog, Holly while we were on vacation. We received pictures and vidoes almost daily and instantly knew that Holly was having a great vacation too!
June was awesome with Kirby. I made a last minute reservation and didn't have time for a "meet and greet" but when I dropped him off he was shy at first but then became very comfortable with her! She sent pictures to show me how he was doing which eased my mind!

June was very kind to our dog, Amber, and she gave her all the correct amounts of food needed. She was also very generous in sending us videos and photos daily so we could see what our dog was up to! Apparently our dog also had a great time with the other canines living there. She also seemed very happy being there and not all intimidated or scared.

June was awesome with giving me daily updates of my pups. June sent pics, videos & text daily. Also June fed my dogs specifically the way I left instructions for my dogs. My dogs seemed very happy with June & I will use her home for my girls when I'm away from our home.

June and Jeff are amazing! They took care of my little pup Coby for three weeks while my husband and I were overseas on vacation. June made sure I was up to date on what Coby was up to while we were gone with videos and pictures which made it easier to be so far away from our pup. I highly recommend June if you want an attentive, caring, and loving dog sitter for your little 4 legged best friend!

June was the perfect substitute for Callie (my son's dog, a pit bull) June was honest about her hesitation but was willing to meet to form her own opinion. She apparently liked Callie because she took her and spoiled her rotten. She sent us photos and videos to let us know Callie was enjoying her stay. I would definitely call on June again when I need a sitter for Callie. She's conveniently around the corner and her prices are reasonable. Thank you, June, Callie came home more spoiled than she already was but am very pleased with the service you provided!!

First time dog vacay user and June worked out great for Zulu our 10 week old boxer puppy. First she's right in our neighborhood which made it really convenient for us. She sent pics and video of our pup playing and having a good time with her 3 dogs. By the time we picked Zulu up that evening he was wore out and crashed once we got him home. Would definitely use June again to watch our puppy.

Our dog Adagio is crazy fun and full of energy. We were afraid he would be too much. However Ms June said he was the life of the party. He usually sleeps in bed with us and on the second night he slept with her too. This is unusual bc he is a Pitt terrier and though he is super friendly we were still surprised. We took the crate but she didn't need it. She kept us posted with plenty of pix.

Shadow had a blast and I got a lot of updates via text on how he was doing. He's normally a very timid dog, so it was nice to see him fit in so quickly.
Again, June is someone who is excellent with our pups, trustworthy and kind. She sends updates pics and video and we are very glad to have someone so wonderful that makes our little ones feel so at home with her.
June is absolutely wonderful with our kiddos! Gracie and Tucker almost hate to leave when we get them and we can tell they have been super loved and played with. She is excellent with communication and sharing pictures and making them feel and us reassured, that they are there as part of her family.

June was excellent! She gave us multiple updates, pictures, and videos which I love because it makes me feel really comfortable. I could tell our pup had a great time with June and she did an amazing job to keep her safe while we were away.
We love June but most important our babies love June!!! I am so glad we have found her!!!
June and Jeff are the best.....my husband and I went out of town for 2 weeks and we had never left our dogs that long and I was very nervous....June sent pictures every day and was scared that my dogs would not want to come home because they were being treated so well.....I would totally recommend June, she is great with dogs and loves them. Thanks again June & Jeff!!!!

June was wonderful. Our dog enjoyed her time there with the permanent canine residents and got lots of playtime. Her house is nicely set up to accommodate visitors. We got daily pics and updates of her stay. She was quick to answer my request for a meet and greet and I felt she was a good fit right away. I highly recommend June and plan on using her service in the future.

She was the best of the best! my little baby was happy with her because she loves them a lot! For the next time I'll call her again! Thank you June for such a beautiful experience with my baby! SHE IS THE BEST!
June was great with Thor. Thor needed medications and she was on top of it. When I brought Thor back for a second visit, he was so happy, his tail could not contain itself!
June continues to be a fantastic person to watch my dogs. She provides a very loving household and excellent care. I will be using June in my future dog watching needs.
June took fantastic care of both of my dogs. She has a very loving home for animals. Thank you June for taking care of my dogs. I look forward to you watching them in the future.
