About Candy

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I can't get away from being a dog lover! They have been my best companions and I was taught early-on that caring for them was loving them.

I'm a fan of "rescue" pets. For the last five years when I lived in Salt Lake City I volunteered for Best Friends Animal Society. They are a grand organization that offers care for all kinds of animals. I worked at their sanctuary and at their events-which is where my current Best Buddy found me. Grizz was 12 when we met and it was love at first sight. He plays like he's 7 and is a perfect companion!

I work from home Monday-Friday so your Best Buddies can enjoy the variety of indoors and outdoors. There's no being crated or confined here, unless that's what they like.

What I will do for your buddy:
-Sit at eye level to get to know them
-Pay attention to them with rubs and loves
-Play!
-Feed them by your schedule, separate from any other doggie
-Let them sleep where they are comfortable-on a bed on the floor or in a crate if they are used to that (Sorry, no dogs on the human's bed :)

What its like here at my home:
-One level, wood and tile floors
-Fully fenced back lawn yard, one step down.
-30'x10' outdoor covered cement patio, attached to house-Even when its raining they can be comfortable outside.
-Electric Fireplace to cozy up to in the winter & Doggie Play Pool outside in the Summer!

What I will do for you:
-Love your Best Buddy like they are my own
-Ask you about their behaviors and habits so I can care for them well
-Follow your instructions
-Send you updates and pictures so you know how they are getting along

Let's meet!

Note: Currently not taking pups under 18 months-its a bit rough on my 14 yr old. Thanks for understanding.

Candy is a warm and loving person who has had both dogs and cats as pets. They have been well-treated and cared for. She will treat other people's pets like her own.

I've known Candy literally all her life - I'm her big sister. From childhood until now, she has always had dogs ( and cats, and even a duck for a while.) She takes care of her pets, and the pups who visit her, like they are her kids. They're always healthy, they get great vet care, healthy food - she's a great cook and makes healthy hand-made dog treats for them!

With Candy, you can rely on great loving care, in a clean and healthy environment. She has a large fenced back yard with a generous covered space so there is room to run and play. She makes sure every visitor's diet and medicine routines are undisturbed, so they feel almost like they're home. Everyone gets plenty of pets and love and conversation, walks, trips to the dog park if possible - I can't think of a thing she wouldn't do to make a critter feel safe and comfy at her house.

While I don't have a dog myself (I'm a cat person) I have been at her home and observed how she cares for her visiting pets, and you can be totally confident your dog is going to have a great time with her and her dog, Grizz.

Candy is wonderful. I like that she doesn't take too many animals at a time, its less stressful and more attention and fun for my dog. Candy is calm, and truly seems to enjoy the animals in her care. My dog was happy in her home and with her calm, and truly seems to enjoy the animals in her care. My dog was happy in her home and with her Aussie. I will definitely use her services again!!

I can't compliment Candy enough for her care of my girl Ruby. She is calm loving and sensible right away. Your dog will feel reassurance and love but not just run amuck! And it always bodes well for us humans when another sees and appreciates traits not just run amuck! And it always bodes well for us humans when another sees and appreciates traits in our fur kids. I could see right away that Candy not only loves animals but will take knowledgeable steps to properly introduce and integrate your dog into her home both for the comfort of my dog and hers. She established a routine of walking, play and feeding as well. Her dog is a wonderful companion as well so it's a win win. I loved the photos and updates seeing that all was well. Your dog will come home happy and well.
