About Alison

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Experienced dog owner available to host big dogs (40 lbs+) in beautiful setting. I have a large, fenced-in backyard available for your pups to play and roam about. I work from home, so your pup will get a lot of supervision. There are two sweet, friendly Rhodesian Ridgebacks in residence, who would be happy to play with your dog and keep him/her company while you're away (Note: Your dog must be able to get along with other dogs. I can't accept any dogs that don't play well with others. Also, no females in heat, please). I'm happy to take your pup hiking/trail running on the many trails available in the area during their stay.

Bamboo had a wonderful time stayin with Alison and her two dogs! Beautiful property, awesome dogs, and awesome host!
Frankie really enjoyed her stay with Allison and her dohe. I appreciated the invite from Allison to stop by and introduce our dogs before the actual stay. This made drop off easy and I felt very comfortable knowing they would get along. Allison knows her dogs well and is very thoughtful about dog behavior. This left me feeling very confident about the upcoming stay. On the first day she sent me a great picture of all the hounds napping together on the dinning room floor. Frankie came home happy to see me but tired and ready for her nap.
My freedom while my pup plays with friends equals an awesome experience all around. I would recommend Allison to other dog lovers who like to know their pet is cared for by a thoughtful and intelligent sitter.
Thank you Allison!

Alison is really great to work with and my dog had a fun time playing with her dogs.
5 stars. Our 2 Catahoulas were very happy & well taken care of.
Great hosts, great home, great resident pets. Seems like Nigel and Liam kept Jamison very busy over Christmas. She came home happy, healthy, and exhausted!! Will definitely connect with Alison again when life takes us away from our pup...we know she's in amazing hands when she's there. Highly recommend!!

Ben had a wonderful time with Alison and her two rhodesians! From the pictures she sent, we could tell he had made himself right at home with them all! I honestly think he was a little sad when he woke up in the morning after we returned and missed his vacay pack! Thank you Alison!

Alison and Jean were great! Everything was just as they described, with a large fenced yard and two friendly Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Our dog Bodie loved her stay with them; they took her hiking, on a trip to their local park, and treated her as one of their dogs for the night + day that she was there. They even sent a photo update from a hike while we were away. Bodie was even a little bit sad when we brought her home – we'll definitely be booking with them on our next trip out of town.
