About Bruce

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I have to add this notice so new customers understand something. I am alerted to, and respond to, and answer all questions and requests in mere minutes 24/7. When you have a question I answer it quickly. So please if it is not an emergency hold off on your questions after 9:30 pm and before 7:00 am, I need my beauty rest. I am up early each day, (by 7:00 am) to take care of your questions and requests. Drop off and pick up hours are 7:00 am to 9:30 pm.

If you login you can hit the "Request Free Meet-n-Greet" button. Please specify date and time you request so I can approve it. That's the best way to meet me and check out my place, as the site will send us both each other's information. You will receive my address and phone number that way, and I will be given your phone number. You can see my location by clicking on "View Neighborhood Map" on my page.

When making any request for either Day Care or Boarding include in the comments, what your needed drop off, and pick up times will be. I need to be prepared for your arrival and need it for calendar scheduling, and proper price quoting. If your stay is more than even 24 hour days, like an early drop off one day and a late pick-up the next day, let me know what you need and request a custom quote. My boarding rates are based on a 24 hour day not 36 hours. I will be happy to watch your dog for 36 hours or whatever you need but you will need a custom quote for the additional time.

Compare what I offer to the others. Retired and home full time, not gone to work like most people. Huge back yard with a safe and secure vinyl privacy fence, (check out the pictures). A large home not an apartment. Forty plus years working with and training dogs. Who else offers all this, and I am still very competitively priced.

I have been working with dogs for over 40 years and presently do volunteer training at a local dog rescue. I am very familiar of how to care for your dog, and know your dog will be happy in my home and large fenced back yard. I have two small friendly dogs for them to play with, if they like that. I am retired and home almost always, my wife may watch the dogs if I have to step out for a short time.

You can leave your dogs here with complete confidence that a very experienced handler, and dog lover will be looking after them. Drop off and Pick up times flexible. If you're looking for the best place for your dog, and the best deal going, you just found it.

Keep in mind a day is 24 hours. An early drop off on one day, and late pickup the following day is not a day and will have an upcharge. For that reason and for scheduling, please state your drop off and pick up times when requesting your boarding days. At the same time, a drop off and pick up that spans 2 days but is only 24 hours is only charged as one day, not two, like at some boarding places.

Another great stay with Bruce while I was out of town for a week. Cookie received excellent care and plenty of attention. There were several photos daily to keep me up to date on activities (and naps). Top-notch care.
I am always impressed with Bruce. He is very organized with how he handles each pet, and I feel comfortable leaving little Bandit with him. I don't trust many people with him because he is such a special dog to me, but I have left him with Bruce many times and have never been disappointed. The photos throughout the day of the dogs playing together is an extra bonus.
Another great stay with Bruce. My dog, Cookie, is always well cared-for and gets plenty of love and attention. I received photos often to keep me updated. I'll be back (already booked for my next trip), because Bruce is one of the best at caring for your pet.
