About Teri & Pat

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to Bichon Bungalow in Beautiful Lake Clarke Shores! We specialize in Bichon Frises. We know their temperament and personalities. Pat and I have cared for dogs for over 30 years and have had 6 dogs as family members.

Currently, we have two small Bichons named Mushu and Brandi. Mushu is 11 years old and we have had him since he was a puppy. Brandi is 12 years old and is our precious rescue. They would love to have playmates. We have a fenced backyard for your little pups to run and romp and play with Mushu and Brandi. They would go on a daily walk twice a day. They will be supervised 24/7 most of the time. If your pups have any special toys, items please bring them so they will feel more comfortable with their things around them. Bring their own food as not to disrupt their feeding. Our yard is sprayed monthly for pests.

For overnight boarding we require your pups:
-to be FLEA FREE
-are spayed or neutered (unless they are too young)
-are completely non-aggressive and super friendly with all dogs and people
-have been socialized
-house trained

I will text you pix at any time you like so you can feel confident your pups are safe and secure. We will LOVE them as our own. Looking forward to having your precious fur-baby stay with us. If you are planning to go away for the holidays, give your pup a holiday also. Schedule a Meet n Greet now, we are waiting on you!

Teri & Pat welcomed Pookey into their home as one of their own. Teri sent or posted pictures of the visit at least daily and more often if there was something extra fun to post. We missed our fur-baby during her stay, but had no concerns about leaving her in Teri & Pat's care. Daily walks and a secure backyard allowed for safety during her stay. Because we live out of state, we likely won't have many opportunities to use Teri & Pat again, but if our travels bring us to the area, we would definitely want to arrange a visit with them!
We were arriving late from out of town and our drop off time wasn't exact but Teri & Pat were accommodating/flexible in receiving Pookey. The first encounter between Pookey & the other three Bichons went well and we felt comfortable leaving our pet in their care.
Carly had a wonderful time at Teri's and Pat's and enjoyed playing with the other dogs it brought her out of her shyness.
Teri was just awesome you could tell she was a dog lover. She also gave us some great advise and tips. Our Mia got along just fine with her two dogs. We would defiantly use her again. Thanks Teri
All usual.
Teri and Pat took great care my Bichon Frise Buzzee Boy while we were in Europe for 12 days. They treat him like one of their own (they have two
Bichons). They send me emails with photos while I am gone showing him having fun and being at home with them. This is Buzzee's permanent home away from home when I travel. This was his second stay and I cannot say enough good things about how I feel when he is in their care.
The very best!
Teri is an extraordinary pet care giver and professional. I travel out out of the Country and I never worry about my precious Polly. She keeps me posted daily on her antics, I appreciate that. Polly loves Pat, Teri's hubby too, always snuggling with both of them. I highly recommend Teri's care services.

I recently lost my baby boy Sir Dougall, Teri was there for me the entire way....most difficult loss in my life.
Wouldn't use anyone else. So glad I found them.
The best! Always shares the cutest pics.
Treats Benny like he is there own! Benny loves it there
It's always a pleasure to leave my baby girl with Teri and Pat. I never have to worry about her care. We just lost Sir Dougall to cancer, so Polly's care and need for loving was just a little more important this time, as I am sure she is grieving for her buddy too, just like all of us. They are the best!
My baby had surgery just 10 days prior and they took extra special care of him!??. Benny loves going there and I have a piece of mind when I am gone.
Teri and her husband Pat took care of my 9 year old Bichon Frise, Buzzee Boy for three weeks while I was in Asia. They fed him his special diet and took great care of him. They also sent me emailed pictures and a video of him playing. I would highly recommend them to any pet owner, but especially Bichon owners as they have two of their own. He was treated as one of their own family and I was very pleased with them overall. Should I go away again, I will ask Teri and Pat to take care of Buzzee.
5 Stars - Pawsome Review!!! My 2 (10) year old Bichon's, LOVED staying with Aunty Teri (her new name) and Pat. They were there 3 nights, and even though one of my dogs had just gotten off of a yucky belly (not liking his food), they did really well. Terri even concocted a special meal when one of my dogs ran out of their "special food"...She added a night (last minute) when we needed one more night. The pups were so happy there....huge back yard (fenced) and shadey and lots of grass and other Bichons to play with. She allowed my babies to even sleep with her! I will be back multiple times, and will recommend her to everyone I KNOW! Ps- she even provided resources to make us better pet parents!
She treated my pup like her own. I was afraid Benny would not want to come home??
As usual, the very best care from Teri n Pat. I never have to worry about my babies, a real blessing. Safe, comfortable, and loving home.
Teri n Pat are kind, loving, and attentive. I don't worry a minute when the babies are with them. Act ally they seem better behaved. Their home has an open layout, doggie door, and nice backyard. But best of all the kids can sit on Pat's lap, or sleep on the bed, just like being home. A very positive experience. Booking again in the near future. Woof x2
Tresa was very good with Sasha excellent sitter I will recommend her 100% and I will bring Sasha back to her, no doubt about it so I sure had a great time at her house always kept me updated about Sasha she is excellent, Sasha wouldn't be better any where else.
