About Sabina

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I absolutely love dogs!

I have clients with small dogs that frequently stay with me so only small dogs under 25 pounds please. I am home during the day so my guest receive constant attention.

I home cook for the kibble topper on my dog's food so if your pup has a special diet, no problem! I feel that creating a comfortable environment for dogs is key to keeping them relaxed mentally. I have clients that have been with me for years, so the pups always get along peacefully.

A typical at the Zen Doggie Retreat-
In the AM the furbabies relax or roam about after their potty break and breakfast. My guest can roam around freely and enjoy a walk on my deck in the AM. I leave the deck door open for a short time during the morning.

Treat time happens a few times during the day. I always have organic sweet potato chewies on hand. My guest with special diet restrictions will have treats available for their pups too. I have a new sofa that is a little too big for the living room, but the dogs come first, right? lol
I keep doggie steps near the sofa for any pups needing a little aid getting up or down.

The pups can relax anywhere they want during the day. I have a few doggie beds on the floor with freshly washed throws on top of them.
I have a secure fenced backyard and will sit outside with the dogs during their potty breaks. If it’s a nice morning and the babies want to roam around the yard, I take my coffee and sit in a comfortable chair and enjoy watching the furbabies walk around. I find this helps with the dogs that are a little more timid about being in a new yard.

If I am working on my laptop or watching a movie, the furbabies always never far away. They are either perched on top of the sofa or snuggled close next to me.
If I leave the house, my furry guest is not confined unless they are new and still adapting to the environment. I may keep them separated in the dining room with a baby gate, but that is only until I know the new sweetie is ok with other dogs when I leave the house. Otherwise, the pups are never separated or confined.
Nighttime consist of more relaxing while we watch a movie together. :) The pups sleep where they wish.


I have 10 years grooming experience so I offer discounted grooming services while the pups are on their vacation with me.

Doggie wash, blow out and nail trim- $20

Doggie wash, blow out, sanitary trim and nail trim- $30

Doggie Spa Groom- wash, blow out, clipper cut, blueberry facial and nail trim- $50

Mineral Mud Treatment- $70. Well worth the cost. Leaves the hair feeling like SILK. Very good for skin and allergy issues.

Note-During the hot summer, we only take short walks out.
Keep me in mind if you have a senior pup needing extra love.

Sabina is wonderful with dogs and my Shih-Tzu loved staying with her & playing with the other small dog guests. Sabina also is a great groomer!
Thank you for the pictures during his stay, it was nice to see how he was doing. Loved that he was with other small dogs .
Sabina is a very good host. Twinkle is always very happy to go there, and happily exhausted when she comes home. I can leave her there with absolute confidence.
Twinkle was a very happy dog when she came home. It was clear she was very comfortable and was well cared for. Thank you
Lovely experience leaving our extra-small dog at a sitter who specializes in caring for small breeds. Sabina does great with our dog's complex pill schedule, and the dog does a little "happy dance" each time we've dropped her off so we know she likes staying with Sabina.

Amazing as always! We love Sabina
Sabina is fantastic! We have to elderly pups and she takes care of their changing needs (and there are many!) They always come home in better condition then when we send them ;) We're so happy to have found her!!!
We love Sabina! We have two senior dogs with a few medical issues and she probably takes care of them better than we do! Our pups have vacationed three times with her so far and always come home happy :)
Sabina welcomed our little pup into her home, and he immediately was comfortable with her dog and other dogs that were there. She is warm, caring, and gentle with all the dogs, and she has their best interests at heart. I felt confident leaving our dog with her, and will definitely use her again for future vacations. The best part was, she sent pictures to us during our vacation to show us that our dog was doing well and having fun. Sabina also groomed our dog, and we were very pleased with the results. She has a real way with dogs.

I can't say enough about Sabina. She has such a calming personality and Is so caring. As my dog ages I worry about kennels - I don't want my dog in a cage yet he doesn't interact well with tons of dogs. Sabina takes smaller dogs such as mine and is cautious to introduce them all slowly. She really seems to understand what each doggie needs. She even let my little guy sleep by her bed - since I know how bad he snores in his old age, that was very kind of her. The peace of mind I had leaving my baby is the highest compliment I can pay.

Sabina really loves dogs and knows how to take care of them. She is warm yet professional. I felt very comfortable leaving my dogs with her, and I will definitely look her up again for our next trip.
Milo had a great time at Sabina's! Despite the fact that he's 10 years old, he loves to play and came home super tired! I think he had a great vacation. Sabina sent updates and photos frequently. I can tell he was cared for .... I will definitely use her service again. She even washed his bed for him!

I was very happy with Sabin. I cannot say enough good things about my experience . My dog came home happy ( not stressed). The safety & wellness of my dog was important to her. I will defiantly use her service again & recommend her to friends. She is a first-rate dog person.
