About Stephanie

5 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Greetings!

Would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my husband, Stephanie and Timothy Townsend. In the small town of Milton NH, which is where we have a made a home consisting of us and our two dogs (George and Eva) as well as our three cats (Sylvester, Lacey and Misty).

Both of us are new to the pet sitting world, myself doing house sitting and watching over pets for family a couple times. Even though we have only been dog parents for five years, I have grown up with dogs as well as other kinds of pets my whole life. Eventually, Tim and I would like to run our own kennel/daycare/boarding facility out of our home.

A little bit about myself. Graduated from Great Bay Community College with a degree in Veterinary Technology with seven years experience in the veterinary field. Currently, I am employed at a dog daycare and continuing to learn more about animal behavior. At some point, there are plans to enroll in dog training/ animal massage therapy programs to become more familiar and able to include more dogs that may take time to feel comfortable in our home (which is something we will do in the future). Tim's experience with animals is minimal, has had pockets pets as a kid, but has gained knowledge from our own pets as well as from my experiences and education. What he may lack with actual schooling and outside experience, he more than makes up with his obvious love for animals, his patience and willingness to take on challenges.

Right now, our back yard is fenced off with a farmers porch in the front that is gated off with a storm door that has a dog door (easy access to the inside). There are two dog crates that are set up but not used all the time (since George and Eva are adults now). Toys, belly rubs, a dog pool, dog beds and plenty of furniture to sleep on (we don't mind fur!). Since we live close to Milton three ponds, we plan on taking dogs for a walk near the water and swimming during warmer months if that is something your dog would like of course!

At this time, I am going to start slow, as I work two jobs, one full time. However, hoping to develop lasting relationships and trust with potential parents and their furry kids. All in good time to make the next step to boarding in our home a more comfortable and enjoyable time for everyone!

Thank you for reading and we look forward to meeting you!

Stephanie is an experienced veterinary technician and genuinely lives dogs. She was so helpful. Our Portguese Water dog is very attached to us so we were worried when we left her. I texted Stephanie to see how she was doing, and she texted back with a picture of our very relaxed and happy girl. I would not hesitate to use Stephanie again.

Steph was wonderful to work with. She came to our house to meet our pets before our reservation and you could tell that she really enjoys working with animals, which was very important to us. (My daughter is very picky about who she entrusts her pets to!) Steph was professional and friendly, kept me updated as to how things were going throughout the weekend, and took good care of things while we were away. I know we'll be using her again in the future.

My Bassets seemed to have had a good experience and all went well during their stay Robert
They did an amazing job and took wonderful care of our two dogs.
Stephanie and Tim were wonderful hosts to our dog Tuggs. They made us feel like we were leaving him with family right away. Tuggs had so much fun he slept for a whole day to catch up. Thank you for caring for our dog like he was your own.
