About Steve & Patty

47 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
At A Touch Of Gold, dogs are supervised 24/7 because taking care of your dog(s) is ALL WE DO! We believe that a kennel should be the last resort for your dog. Your dogs will live in our home like our own dogs do.....subject to any rules you may have about furniture, beds, and so forth. Taking good care of our client's dogs is all that we do and have done FULL TIME in our home since 2010. Dogs pretty much "have the run" of our home and our securely fenced corner lot outside of the village limits. Though for safety all guest dogs will be crated at night or when they cannot be directly supervised, many of our long-term clients have proven trustworthy and no longer get crated at all and get to sleep in our bedroom :) Our philosophy is that ALL dogs should be able to be crated, and if you have questions about this please be sure to ask us at the meet & greet.

Patty and I have FORTY years of CONCURRENT experience owning, caring for, rehabilitating, and working with dogs........for the last eight years hosting dogs in our home has been EXCLUSIVELY how we make our living. However, we have offered in-our-home boarding and daycare for over TWENTY-FIVE YEARS all told. In fact, we have a VERY L-O-N-G list of satisfied clients who in many cases are sending their second, and even third generation of cherished tail-waggin' K9 companions to stay with us.......and who would never even think of sending anywhere else.

We have no breed restrictions..........HOWEVER and IMPORTANT:

WE REQUIRE THAT WE MEET WITH YOU AND YOUR DOG(S) AT A "MEET & GREET". This is to be sure that they are social with other dogs and people, and will be a good fit here for THEIR SAFETY as well as our existing client dogs. Even if you are not sure of this, PLEASE contact us because we may be able to work with you to create more sociability in your dog because of our extensive experience in understanding and modifying canine behavior. We will NOT send you away if you have a dog with special needs. We have many years of experience in hosting dogs who have serious medical conditions and/or are elderly. We also offer multiple dog discounts (depending on length of stay), AND unlike many other hosts we charge our same low price regardless of whether your dog's stay is during a Dog Vacay defined Holiday period or not.

Your dog will be cared for and loved as a part of our pack while you are away and that's why our motto for twenty-five years has been:

"Only The Best For Your Best Friend"

I was worried because Remmy is a nervous puppy. Steve introduced his dogs to him one at a time to reduce stress and it all went well. He is professional and accommodating. I believe Remmy enjoyed his stay and we will definitely use him again.
We have never left our dog anywhere other than with family members. I wanted to find a sitter who would be as good to our Bassett hound, Tula, as we were. When we met Steve, we knew he was going to be that person. Tula came home after her stay were. When we met Steve, we knew he was going to be that person. Tula came home after her stay happier than when we dropped her off! And, we immediately booked another stay. We may even send her to daycare with Steve, just to get her some activity with other dogs. I'm so glad we found Steve He is great!

This is my second time with Steve and Patty. I felt good about leaving my Izzy there. I knew I could call
if I became dogsick, but didn't. Izzy seemed fine at drop off and somewhat indifferent when I picked him
up. Thanks Izz! He will be back to seemed fine at drop off and somewhat indifferent when I picked him
up. Thanks Izz! He will be back to play with the big dogs.
