About Tristan

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Our fourth year as DogVacay hosts! Check out pictures of our guests on Instagram: "Minnesotris".

We provide a happy and secure "home away from home" for your dog(s). From our re-enforced fenced dog-yard to steps by the bed for the small ones our house is fully dog-friendly. Daily walks to Prosperity Park, two short blocks away, are an enjoyable outing for exercise.

As former breeders, we belong to both the NRTA (National Rat Terrier Association) and the UKC (United Kennel Club). In the last few years we have been active in rescue and fostering and have had the opportunity to host dogs of many different breeds. We love them all!

Our two Rat Terriers (Lola & Vinny) have always been quite welcoming to the dogs we have boarded and fostered. They generally get along with everybody.

I am home all day, interacting with our pack and guests. PLEASE NOTE: Our overnight boarding charge covers a 24 hour period. If you drop off your dog at 8 a.m., the checkout time will be 8 a.m. We do not get paid for the day the dog checks out. We can arrange a later pick up time, but a $20 charge for daycare will be added.

This was my first time using DogVacay and I could be more pleased. Tristan was great with my two giant dogs. My favorite part was that she sent several pictures and updates everyday so I knew they were being well cared for. I'll be sure to bring my dogs to her again next time.
They were excellent with my dog Trixie. Thank you so much for taking good care of my dog.
Tristan, Thank your consoling Sadie for the day. Her heart is broken after losing her beloved Buddy to old age.
Casey enjoyed is stay with Tristan.
Tristan is literally the best with Huckleberry. She has way too much fun when we're gone! We always know our pup will be in good hands!
i felt that Kenzie was in great hands with Tristin. Her home and yard was safe to care for multiple dogs. I know Kenzie got lots of play time and attention.
Tristan is quite literally THE BEST! She is extremely knowledgeable with dogs and thoroughly enjoys their company, which are the 2 greatest qualities to have in this line of work! I will definitely be booking again with Tristian!
Tristan was great. She sent us texts and great photos throughout our pup Logan's vacay. Logan was tired out when he came back home. We booked at the last minute so Tristan is flexible to work with. I've brought him to a sitter from DogVacay before and he came back with bad habits. When I left him with Tristan I swear he came back better potty trained. I didn't have to worry about Logan because Tristan always kept us updated which made my vacation awesome. Logan had plenty of friends to play with and didn't care much about us when we picked him up. I would absolutely leave Logan with Tristan again.
Tristan is expert with special needs dogs like our Buster. She saw that he got his seizure meds every few hours, and gave him a rollicking good time at her place with the other dogs over the Thanksgiving holidays. Thanks, Tristan!
Tristan and Bill are good communicators and very accommodating to my dog's needs. Thanks for taking excellent care!!
Huckleberry loves staying with Tristan and her wonderful family! We never have to worry about our dog when she is with them.
I'm so glad Tristan was recommended to me. I needed to find someone that would take my 2 dogs on an "on call" basis, for when I went into labor. I think it's rare to find someone (good) that is willing to take dogs on short notice. I appreciated the initial phone call to discuss details. We had a meet and greet the following day and I could tell Tristan loved dogs and knew how to deal with them. Tristan and Bill were very cool and down to earth. Tristan sent pictures with captions a few times a day which was great to know my fur babies were doing well. I'll always use Tristan in the future!
Even though our dog has separation anxiety issues, we were very happy with the service at Tristan's. Lucy received a lot of love and attention and Tristan sent us pictures and updates throughout the day. We have already scheduled another 'vacay' for Lucy at Tristan's
Tristan is so so great with my dog Cameron. I know she is getting lots of love and supervised play time. I think Tristan has a deep understanding of dogs, what they need and provides it impeccably. I will always hope that Cameron can spend her Vacay with Tristan!
Felt very comfortable with Tristan, in knowing my little dog would be taking care of while I was away.
Tristan and Bill were great with Bentley! Bentley was pretty nervous at first but ended up having a great time playing with the other dogs. He probably misses having other little dogs around 24/7 that have the same amount of energy that he does. This was my first time using DogVacay, and it worked out perfectly.
The Arnold's are the best!!! We can go on vacation without having to worry about the well being of our pooches...thank you Tris, Bill, Rat Pack and Sergio for everything! We will never go out of town if you guys are booked.
Tristan was great and my pup loved it. Looking forward to dropping him off in the future. I know he is in good hands
Tristan and Bill are the best! We picked them based on reviews, and were not disappointed in any sense of the word! They made sure that Huck was comfortable in their home and with their dogs during our meet n' greet and answered all my questions.

I felt 100% confident that Huck would be safe and secure (she's a bit of an adventurer) with Tristan and Bill. They kept me updated with fun photos and made sure I was never worried while we were on vacation.

Huck also had WAY too much fun with them! She loved playing with their dogs, and is actually kind of sad now that she doesn't have her puppy friends around all the time.

They know so much about dogs, and it's clear that they know exactly what they are doing!

I cannot say enough good things about them - we will definitely be having them host Huck again. She loved it and we do to!
We love Tristan. She takes wonderful care of our kids. I appreciated the personal phone call from day 1 and heard her talking and interacting with the dogs. We did the meet n greet and the kids loved her as well as us.

We brought them home and they slept all day!
Tristan was so nice and friendly and quick to respond to my last minute planning. Her house is PARADISE for (small) dogs. I can tell she spoils them rotten.
Ichabod was so happy and tired when I picked him up. Thank you!

I only wish she had a bigger backyard for my 80 pound-high-energy-yellow lab-puppy who is used to tons of exercise.
Always Amazing! Tristan takes great care of our lab Yogi, he is always so happy when we pull up because he knows it's going to be great fun. Tristan is flexible and truly treats her guests as family. We have recommended all our friends to her and they all say the same thing, Tristan is awesome.
Tristan is great! She's awesome at communicating with me when setting up the reservation and while I was away. She sends updates and pics. Her dogs and cat are very friendly to new friends in their house. She is organized and great at giving oral and injectable medications which is a life saver when you have a diabetic dog. I will definitely use her again!
Tristan did an excellent job. She and her husband provided a superb experience for our 4 month old puppy. We went for a meet and greet visit in which we saw her home and had a chance to get our questions answered. She is a real dog lover and seems to be very comfortable around dogs. She told us what to bring along with our puppy and reassured us about every detail. Her place is very clean. She has 3 dogs of her own and a declawed cat. They each met our dog individually and became acquainted. She seems to have things under good control.
During the weeklong stay, we got daily updates and 3 nice pictures.
When we picked him up he seemed very happy and returned to his regular routines right away.
We will use Tristan again without hesitation. P.S.
She saved a baby tooth of our puppy and gave it to us.
We're repeat visitors with Tristan and Bill.

Our two 15-year-old Rat Terriers were well provided for and pampered over their four-day stay.

Tristan and Bill were challenged this visit. Sadie is recovering from ACL knee surgery. Buddy was recently attacked and recovering from 5 broken ribs and bite wounds. Sadie is on medication for seizures; Buddy is on antibiotics and pain medication. Buddy is essentially infirmed and very messed up. I asked Tristan if we should cancel our trip, but she assured me she could handle it. Boy, did she! Buddy returned home in far better condition than when we dropped him off; Sadie was happy and healthy and she didn't lose any weight.

Tristan's expert judgment, deep caring and compassion, and the unconditional love she provides to the dogs she cares for is clear and present. We wouldn't have entrusted our needy seniors to ANYONE else.

Thank you, Tristan and Bill! You're the best and any pup blessed enough to stay with you is one lucky dog!
SO happy we connected with Tristan! Fantastic pet sitter!
Our pup returned from his first weekend overnight stay with Tristan as happy as a clam. We kept up with him via sweet text messages Tristan sent, so we saw that he ran with a terrier pack, hogged the bed, and had a lot of human attention. Tristan and Bill are passionate about dogs and, more importantly, they are passionate about keeping them safe, healthy, and well-adjusted when they are away from home. Thank you!!
Tristan is great! She really loves dogs and treats them like family! My dogs are so happy to be at her home with her family. Thank you, Tristan, for being such a great caregiver for my baby dogs! COH
Tristan and Bill took excellent care of our dog Athena. They took great care to work with her particular quirks and shortly had her romping around with glee. Athena had a complete blast playing with other dogs and with a cat that would actually interact with her (ours are jerks). She did not want to come home, our house is too boring and lacking in fun comparing to Tristan's. She won't stop pouting at us, it's really pathetic. In conclusion, We blame Tristan for our dog's pouty demeanor because we are boring dog parents.
My pup's first stay with Tristan was FANTASTIC! I was thankful that safety is Tristan's first priority - from the supervised dog-to-dog interaction to the careful trips outside. When I picked him up, I could tell that he had not only been kept safe but also happy. He was returned to us well-adjusted and with his tail wagging. I also appreciated that Tristan sent several photo pup-dates so that I could see what my dog was up to throughout the day. He's already booked for another stay with Tristan! Thanks so much!
It really shows how much Tristan cares about the animals and work she does. I love the updates and pictures she sends every time Layla is there. She treats her like one of her own dogs and we couldn't be happier with her care!
Tristan helped us out on a busy day for us. Our beagle was tired and happy when we picked her up. Will defintely use her again.
Murphy had a great dog vacay! Tristan was wonderful and we felt confident that she was taking excellent care of our fur person !
Tristan is a genuine animal lover! She is patient with my little Chihuahua mutt who is a darker and a marker. She also brings out the best in my timid and nervous American Eskimo. I never have to worry about their basic needs being met, as she goes above and beyond. I like how she sends me pictures and videos to keep me updated, but I like it more that she treats my two furbabies as if they are a part of her pack. I enjoy boarding with Tristan and highly recommend her!
Tristan was awesome! My puppy had a blast and the updates from Tristan provided me the peace of mind I needed to enjoy my vacation.
My dogs loved spending time with Tristan. She sent me beautiful photos of them during their stay. Tristan was very flexible with my drop off & pick up times which is greatly appreciated! Thank you for a great experience. C. H.
Tristan is amazing! My dog is a little diva and can be difficult. She's shy, picky, hates being picked up and I wasn't sure how she'd make out on this first time away from home. From the very moment I talked with Tristan I just knew she would be a great sitter for my dog. It's so evident that she loves dogs. She took care of my dog for 10 days and I never once worried about her well being. You just have to meet Tristan and you'll know what I mean. She sent daily updates on my dog and pictures too! I'm so glad I found Tristan and plan on using her services again and again.
Mia and Jewel were so well taken care of Arnold's :)

First time my kids have had a "sleep over" for several days outside of their own home. They must have had a great time because they were pooped when they got home...the boys were jealous.

Thanks for the lovin' Tristan.
MacKenzie LOVED her stay at Tristan B.'s! She sent us pics & video of MacKenzie, and one can tell that Mac was having a good time! MacKenzie was given the love & attention she needed. We will certainly use Tristan B.'s services again in the future...She is THE BEST! Thanks, Tristan! :)
Tristan was amazing. She would send me pictures of my dog during her stay. You can tell she truly loves dogs. Rest assured she will be taking amazing care of your best friend.
Tristan has been wonderful with our pup Apollo. She sends me picture updates throughout the day which really helps put my mind at ease. We will never go back to bringing Apollo to a typical daycare after the phenomenal experience we've had with Tristan, her husband and their pups.
Tristan took wonderful care of my dachshund. I have known her for years, and I was completely confident in leaving my dog in her capable hands. She kept my usually anxious dog calm and now that he is back home I think he misses hanging out at her place. I have already booked his next stay with her.
Moose had a great stay with Tristan and her husband. We were updated with pictures and messages about Moose while we were away, which made us feel totally at ease! It was clear that he got a lot of love and attention and we will definitely have him stay with Tristan again in the future!
Great! Received a few pics a day that let us know that Wally was making dog friends and having a good time. Thanks!!
Excellent stay. Our two Rat Terriers had a great time. Both are seniors (15 and 16) and Tristan handled them perfectly.

Our female, Sadie, gets nervous away from home and can have trouble eating enough food, but Tristan saw that she ate and didn't lose any weight. Sadie also requires oral medication and Tristan administered it twice daily.

We really appreciated the daily pictures and text updates, too.

Our aging Rats now have a new home-away-from-home.

Oh -- beware of Tristan's dog, Vinny; he'll steel your heart!

Tristan, thank you for taking such GREAT care of our dogs. They'll be joining you this summer for a LONG stay.
This was the first time I've left Johnny with anyone and I couldn't have be more satisfied with the wonderful care he had with Tristan & Bill. I got daily pictures & texts which showed how great he was doing! He totally made himself at home & enjoyed playing with other dogs. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Tristan's Animal House to anyone & know my Johnny will happily stay there again.
We were able to totally enjoy our vacation with frequent updates & lots of pictures of our fur baby. We knew that he was not only being cared for but he was being played with and loved. This meant the world to us and we definitely plan to use Tristan whenever we need to leave our pup in the future.
Tristan is just great. She has a great location with ability to take care of many dogs. She also is terrific with people and clients and is very organized and huge on communication which is very important to a clients. I would recommend anyone choose Tristan first for their doggy vacay needs because she is simply just great.
Lucy loved her stay with Tristan. This was our first time using DogVacay and Lucy was confused about why we left her there but she had a great time and came home happy and healthy.
Tristan and Bill are great and when Waffles is with them, I know he is in good hands :)
I won't leave my dogs with anyone else! Tristan and Bill are the best and even my shy dog loves them.
They are awesome! !!
Ruby's stays with Tristan & her husband are always tension free and full of attention and love. She is eager to go there, and always comes back well loved, rested, and like a puppy again; hard to do for a 14 year old dog. For Ruby, it is like being at home, and Tristan and her husband make sure of that. When I'm gone, I don't worry at all about Ruby, because I know she is in very good hands, and well taken care of. Joe K.
Tristan is great with dogs!
We HIGHLY recommend Tristin B. to watch dogs whenever a dog sitter might be needed.
Maisy just loved Tristan, Bill and the other dogs! She will for sure be visiting again at some point. Maisy is pretty big and Tristan's small dogs were so good with her. Thanks again Arnold's House!
Tristan and Bill were great with Daisy! This was Daisy's 1st time staying with a cat and she was very intrigued with Sergio, the very dog friendly and dog savvy resident cat. Sergio handled Daisy perfectly! I think Daisy already misses him! Tristan sent text updates and pictures throughout the week and Daisy looked content and well taken care of. They even brushed her up and her coat looked great. I enjoyed my vacation knowing Daisy was in a home and having a good week!
One of the nicest things about bringing my dogs to the Arnolds' is the peace I find in the easy and comfortable acceptance the offer my pets. My dogs are not perfect. But the Arnolds love them anyway!! Ellie and Sarah know when they're going for a Dog Vacay . . . the suitcase comes out and they get excited! It's so wonderful to have the Arnolds as an extension of our family. Thanks, Tristan - for doing what you do!
Tristan was awesome. My dogs loved her. I will definitely take my pets there again
We love Tristan!!! And more importantly, our Wheaton terrier Lucy loves her even more!!! Lucy has stayed with Tristan twice now and comes homes exhausted, but beyond happy! Tristan sent us many pics while we were away and totally eased our minds about leaving Lucy. I would recommend Tristan to everyone looking for a dog sitter. She has taken care of and loved Lucy like one of her own, which is way more than I could have ever asked or hoped for!!
Tristan made this nervous doggie mama feel safe and secure with our precious Doxie! This was the first time we've left him with anyone and she constantly updated us on his shenanigans and well being. I finally feel secure in leaving Gunther in someone else's care and that person is Tristan!!
Bill and Tristan are absolutely amazing!! Buddy has been here a few times now but this time was a special occasion. Bill and Tristan were able to stay on standby so we could have somebody to watch Buddy when my wife went into labor. With bill and Tristan the ease of mind that they give to us when they take care of Buddy. It's great to have to be in the hospital and know that your dog is taken care of by grab some great people!!
We are THRILLED to have Tristan and Bill as family members!! And delighted to meet them through Dog Vacay!!
At the risk of sounding redundant . . . Tristan and Bill are the best dog people on the planet. I hesitate recommending them because I'm using them more and more. . . and I want to be sure they ALWAYS have room for my girls!! Sarah and Ellie love them - and you will too.
Tristan is the best! So much love and care was given to our dog when at their home. We were able to travel with no worries at all and our elderly lab enjoyed every minute of her time here. Thanks so much!!
Tristan and Bill are the best! I would schedule my vacation based on their availability rather than put my pups with anyone else. Have booked with them multiple times and recommend them without hesitation.
We've found a great host for our girl while we're away. I highly recommend Tristan!
Buddy couldn't have been in better hands!!!! Thanks for treating him like your family. The pictures were great and made us feel great.
Once again - the Arnolds are hard to beat as dog sitters! The cheery, optimistic, upbeat nature of their home is reason enough to trust them with my dogs. Add to that Ellie and Sarah's enthusiasm when I say "Want to go visit the Arnolds?" and you have a dynamite combination. Thanks, Tristan and Bill! We'll be back.
Tristan and Bill were amazing to work with and helped us out in a last minute situation. Our dog has separation anxiety and they did everything to make him comfortable and ease our worries of leaving him in an unfamiliar place. We will definitely be using them again and highly recommend them!
Ellie and Sarah begin to "hoot and holler" whenever we head in the direction of Tristan's house!! Always, always, always a "no-drama" experience and a lovely stay for my happy girls.
Tristen took great care of Bailey. She came home happy. And we felt great knowing she was safe and sound.
Tristan and Bill are wonderful! One of the three tends to be skittish and shy, but feels completely at home and safe with them; another is blind, half deaf and diabetic, and they take her special needs in stride. If my girls loved them the tiniest bit more than they do, I'd be really, really jealous.
Both Ellie and Sarah BEG to go to Arnold's Animal House!!! Tristan and Bill are the coolest!! And the other dogs are as happy as my Scotties. Thanks, folks - for another fabulous visit!
Nigel has never had a finer vacation from us. He was disappointed to come home with me and wishes he was back at Tristan's house.
Tristan and bill continue to amaze me everytime Hunter stays. he always comes home happy and relaxed. Whenever we drop him off he happily bounds into the house and is SO glad to be home. I am so grateful that we can go away and NEVER worry about him!
Ellie and Sarah are home from another visit at Tristan's. They're well fed, bathed, happy and exhausted - - and smiling big doggy smiles. We won't go anywhere else - - Tristan and Bill are like members of our family. FIVE STARS - - and we'd give them ten, if ten stars were an option. - Kristine
Tristan and Bill are awesome! Our pups have always been in great hands in their loving home.
Tristan and Bill are awesome. Murphy loves spending time there - it's truly a vacation for him. He gets walked every day, and gets love and attention.
Tristan and Bill are always awesome. We have placed Simon and Vivi with them on multiple occasions. The pups are always well cared for and have fun playing with Vinny the Rat and the other dogs they care for. Vivi is especially shy and it takers her some time to warm up to others, but she is always comfortable with Tristan and Bill.
Tristan, William and the animals at their home are our second family. My dogs go wild when we get in the car and head in the direction of the Arnolds'. I am forever in the debt of DogVacay for introducing me to such cool "dog" people!! Ellie and Sarah had a blast - and I went to Disneyland without a care in the world!!
Tristan was awesome! Our dogs really enjoyed staying at her place and making friends with her dogs.
This was our second visit. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tristan and Bill. They are great with their own hounds and very sweet to ours.
Loved the pictures and updates we received!! It was very comforting for us to know that Remy was in such good hands!
Ellie and Sarah get SO excited when we round the bend and see Tristan's house. Excellent care for my (sometimes) odd little dogs! Thanks for being in my life, Tristan!
Hunter has stayed with Bill and Tristan and 4 or 5 times now and he LOVES it

When we took him the other day he RAN inside as soon as he heard her voice! It is really extraordinary.

We have started planning our trips around when Tristan and Bill are available - and as much as I love my dog, I have to tell you he is NOT EASY!

The other really cool thing about Tristan is that she is so good about posting pictures and notes on FB about how much fun he is having. It really makes being gone so much more fun!
Tristan was the BEST! Delightful couple, very intelligent and welcoming. She & her husband had the perfect calm assertive personalities, their own dogs were centered and welcoming, and I felt confident that my shepherd mix dog Maggie would be in excellent hands. Tristan sent regular texts that were reassuring and delightful. HIGHLY recommend! I will definitely call on Tristan B again! Many thanks, Tristan!
I'm confident that Polly was well taken care of on her stay at Tristan's. I received lots of updates and some adorable pictures. I would have Polly stay again without any hesitation!
Awesome! So accommodating and helpful.
Another great experience! It's comforting to know your furry friend is being cared for in the same loving way you would. Highly recommend.
Tristan and her husband could not have been more helpful nor more attentive to my poopies, and I do mean poopies! One of them had diarrhea and Tristan really went above and beyond in her care. I will definitely make reservations with them again and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Tristan and Bill were excellent!
It was stressful absent for 11 days to deal with my family issue, but they reduced my stress level a lot by taking great care of Sky. I enjoyed pictures they sent me. They were also flexible to adjust my uncertain schedule. Sky wanted to stay more at their house when I went to pick him up.
I am sure Sky wants me to ask them again for future.
Once again, Ellie and Sarah report high satisfaction with their weekend visit to Tristan and William. This time - on the way to the house - both of them began to bark with enthusiasm as we approached. when I picked them up on Sunday, I sensed a reluctance to leave. My dogs love the open, caring environment - and I love the Arnolds!
Tristan is absolutely the best! It's obvious that she really enjoys dogs, and my two dogs certainly seemed to enjoy their first stay.
Another doggie vacation for our two "girls" at Tristan's. She texted us updates every other day or so with pictures so we could see what the pups were doing. I can't say enough good things about the care and love our dogs get when they stay here!
As always Tristan was wonderful.
Tristan is amazing. My dog loves her place. She is very flexible and ses to my dogs every need She sends me pictures of Lily being happy and having fun.
Tristan is a fabulous host. She loves dogs and takes superb care of them paying attention to their individual needs such as meds and food preferences. They got the exercise and attention needed plus lots of exercise, brushing and love! We have already booked Tristan for our next DogVacay stay!
We are so happy with the care our golden doodle Gus has received at Arnold's Animal House. Gus is a very high energy and playfully mischievous dog which I think makes him a handful. Tristan and her husband are awesome and welcome Gus into their home as if her were one of their own! Gus has stayed several times at Tristan's and every time he comes home happy and exhausted! I would highly recommend this home and we look forward to the next time we see them again!
Tristan is amazing. My little Lily wants to go back.
Thanks for taking care of Teddybear on such short notice. Clearly, she had a blast!
Tristan and Bill went out of their way to make Jesse' comfortable in her new surroundings. We were nervous about leaving our big baby for 10 days but were happy and relieved by the updates provided. Thanks for welcoming Jesse into your family!
Tristan welcomed us at an early visit, and both my dogs adored her. Her home is wonderful - dog friendly, open, loving - - and her confident approach to taking care of my Ellie and Sarah inspired me to relax - and leave them in her care. I don't go away much. . . so it is hard for me to trust my dogs to anyone. I feel so lucky to have met Tristan, and I know for certain I'll bring my girls to her again and again. Thanks for introducing me to her! I recommend her highly.
This was Rags' second stay with Tristan and Bill and their pack of terriers and all went as well as the first. Rags had a great time with his new best friend Maggie. Tristan is wonderfully flexible about time, and I was able to drop off and pick up Rags on my way to and from my flight without having to make a second trip. A real time-saver.
Tristan was great with our dogs and flexible and patient with the needs of a puppy still learning a lot about how to be a good dog. She was a great communicator, too, and it was nice to get pics of the pups while we were away. Thanks!
Tristan and Bill took great care of our shy and insecure little Mari and treated her like their own. They kept me posted regularly with messages and pictures and I felt very secure knowing our dog was in wonderful hands.
I only want the best for my dogs because they are my family. I would only trust them EVER with Tristan.
Great hosts, we were gone for 5 days, and returned to a happy pup!
Once again, Riki and Chico had a fantastic stay with Tristan and Bill. Another loving and fun stay for them.
Tristan and Bill were AWESOME!! They are a great couple and you can just tell they enjoy taking care of your dogs. Dash and Ella came home and we could tell they had be taken care of just the way we take care of them.

We we definitely use Tristan and Bill again and so should you.

Thanks from Dash & Ella
Tristan and Bill took very good care of my dog, and I would trust them with him any time I need to go out of town. Tucker enjoyed his visit so much he slept most of the afternoon after we returned home! Tristan and Bill seemed to really enjoy having Tucker stay, and it's apparent that they love all dogs in general. It's also reassuring to know they have connections with veterinarians in the area, so I know my dog is well cared for and in good hands.
Tristan and Bill are awesome. I needed a last minute place to bring my Rottie/Lab mix. They were very accommodating, and willing to help me out on short notice.
This was the first time we ever used an outside facility to board our dog. He is an aging boxer with health issues and special diet/needs. Tristan did not bat an eye at any of this. I felt very comfortable the first time meeting both her and Bill. She updated me throughout the weekend and even sent me a picture of our boy relaxing on his blanket. He was in the best of hands and would recommend them to anyone looking for a safe, loving home for their dog for any length of time. Bonus, his blanket was freshly washed when I picked him up!
They were flexible on drop off and pick up time. Jerry see med to enjoy his visit!
Tristan and Bill are truely amazing - they have been such an amazing gift to us and to Hunter - our 7 month old golden doodle - he is wonderful but NOT easy - I would much rather leave Hunter with Tristan than any body I know - and the best part is he LOVES to go- always just bounds into the house and settles in-
Tristan and her family were absolutely amazing!!!!
And our dog, even though he is awesome, is NOT easy. I am not even sure that Hunter is all that happy we are home!

I had no idea that I would be able to be gone and not worry at ALL about Hunter's care -

If you are looking for a dog vacay host check with Tristan FIRST
Tristan and Bill were awesome. Our boys, Riki and Chico, were loved, exercised, played with and well cared for. They came home tired and that's a good thing. And they had baths! I'm not sure I can keep up to the care they received with Tristan and Bill.
Tristan and Bill and their pack of rat terriers made Rags feel welcome. They were flexible with drop off and pick up times, and helpful when it looked like my flight might be delayed and Rags might have to stay an extra night. I would definitely leave Rags with them again. Great folks!
