About Simone

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My first dog Billy got me 16 years ago, unfortunetly, he passed away form cancer at age 8.5 after a 2 year battle. I also belonged to Wolfie for 7 years, he passed away at age 12.

Now my husband and I belong to three dogs. Pancho, who is a 16 year old Chihuahua, a Lilly, who is a 7 year old Jack Russel Terrier. We also foster dogs for a local rescue. I have had 36 fosters adopted out to good forever homes. As you can have gotten an idea already, we love dogs! Our home will be the prefect paradise for your dog to stay and enjoy him/herself.

Daily activities are morning walks, sunbathing, playing in and out as we please, trips to our local college campus to enjoy watching the birds and cool our paws in the lake and of course lots of napping.

Your pets will receive 24/7 supervision inside and out. Transportation to vet in case of emergency will also be provided and oral medication can be administrated to your pet. Your dog is welcome to bring his personal items, such as beds, crates and blankets.

A meeting to establish compatabilily is highly recommended.

Me, my husband and our furry family will be happy to have your pets in our home to give you the peace of mind that they will be cared for as part of our family so you can fully enjoy your vacation.

Dogs with disability welcome!

SPAYED AND NEUTERED DOGS ONLY, UNLESS YOUNGER THAN 6 MONTHS, PLEASE!

Please, check my calendar for availability!

I NO LONGER CAN ACCEPT LARGE BREED PUPPIES DUE TO THE ADVANCED AGE OF MY OWN DOGS!

Very kind and personable wife and husband. They took great care of my GSD. Hope not to have to leave her again but, if needed would feel comfortable leaving her with these folks. Thanks Simone.
It was the first time we left our dog. Simone sent us pictures of our dog. I would highly recommend her and I would use her again if the need arises.
I can't say enough about Simone! We recently went on a 7 day vacation and everyday we got Photos and updates. Toby loves her and when we pick him up he is happy,clean and healthy. We appreciate her very much.
Simone was awesome. This was our first time using this type of care so I was nervous. All went well and Simone stayed in contact and sent pictures! Thank you so much!
Can't thank you enough for taking care of Boomer
Simone and company were very polite and lil girl said the same. She is willing to go back anytime.
This was Bonita's second stay with Simone. She felt so comfortable going back again, and we had a wonderful vacation knowing our puppy was well cared for. We really appreciate her loving care.
I felt confident that my pups received good care. Simone's house is clean and dog friendly. She was able to accommodate our drop off and pick up times. I would use her again to watch my pets. Thanks!
Simone is always wonderful! Getting ready to book again. Thank you.
Your best friend is in great care with Simone! 5 STARS all the way This is the fourth time our dog stayed with her and next stay is coming soon. Thank you Simone! Tony and family
It is really hard to find a good trustworthy sitter in the High Desert. BUT I could not have ask for a better sitter for our Paulie. Paulie got an gum infection 2 days before I was set to leave for duty. I contacted Simone for last minute reservation and she was happy to help me out as our other sitter cancelled. She took very good care of our Paulie. So well that he recovered! She administered his medicine and even got him to start eating again. We have found our trusted sitter.

Simone is a wonderful caregiver. It gave us piece of mind seeing the photos and daily updates. We know our dog Bonita was safe and well cared for while we were away. We have already scheduled Bonita's next visit!
I was very Happy with the service and would recommend Simone to my friends.
Toby has been to Simone's house over 6 times and every time he comes home he is so happy and healthy! I appreciate her so much, she treats Toby like her own. His favorite spot is on her lap. Lucky Toby and lucky us for finding her. I would recommend her to anyone. See you soon.

Host was very accommodating to our travel plans and Hollie had a great time!
Link was happy to see us come get him! Being a rescue he is very afraid of being left alone. The only thing I would have like better was some more pics of him having fun....we will be going back!
Simone is the best!! She sends the cutest pictures. Our Kobe just loves her.
He had a great stay! Would use her again and again
Simone is awesome! Our dog had a great 10 day stay. Simone sent lots of pictures and responded quickly to all communication. We will definitely book again. Thank you!
Simone is amazing! I wont take my little Henry to anyone else. She kept in contact with me during Henry's stay with them and she sent me pictures of him which gave me peace of mind since I could tell he was having a wonderful time with Simone. Thank you Simone for the excellent, above and beyond service you gave me and thank you so much for taking care a Henry while I was gone.

I had a wonderful experience with Simone, having never boarded my pet before, she set the precedent! Not only did she take great care of my Lulu for the 10 days I was gone, I was able to adopt one of her fosters and added Willow to our family! I will never look anywhere else for a safe place to leave my girls where I KNOW they will be loved just like they are at home! Thank you, Simone!

I just can't thank Simone enough for treating Toby like one of her own. Toby can't wait to come back.
Short notice for a new puppy. Simone was great with updates and I think my Chica wanted to stay there instead of coming home with me! lol
Dog Vacay is very easy-to-use and answer any questions or concerns about the process. I'm glad I found Simone F from Billy Little Dog B&B..Got same day reservation. My dogs had a great time & met some new friends! My babies were relaxed & stress free,Simone is GREAT !! We WILL BE BACK ;)

This was our first time leaving our dogs with Simone and the dogs did very well at her house. We will be using her again.
Simone cares for our dog like she was her own. I can relax when I'm gone because I know she's in good hands.
Simone took great care of our pup and sent us many pictures so we knew she was doing well. This was our first time using a dog sitter, and I relied on previous reviews to make my decision. Things worked out very well!
I loved it simone was awesome and I will definitely be bringing Brody to her my next vacation !
We love Simone;) Max really loves staying at her house and has made many new friends...even a girlfriend. Simone spoils him, and he came back a exhausted pooch. I would highly recommend Simone. She is a great pack leader!
This is our second time boarding with Simone, she is wonderful and works great with drop off and pick up times. Thank you Simone!
Simone was great! We have two large Siberian huskies that can be a hand full, but Simone took great care of them and provided plenty of buddies for them to play with over our two week vacation. Would use Simone again for dog sitting.
My 2-month old Missy was in good hands for 4 nights and 5 days this winter. I loved the fact that she slept in her own bed inside the host's room. The house looked clean, and the dogs looked well taken care of. My little Missy made friends with the big and small dogs on her first visit previous to her stay. Daily pics of her different activities and social interaction with other dogs kept my whole family amused while we were away. Simone had a routine of feeding my puppy 4 meals a day: 6am, 12noon, 4pm, and 8pm. That was impressive. Now I know where my puppy can stay during family trips.

Simone was excellent ! She sent me pictures everyday, we be back for sure! Thank you
As usual Simone was great with our doggies, always treats them like her own :-). Even have our other family members using her services for their doggies.
As usual Simone is a wonderful person. My dog just loves her!
Simone is great. My dog loves her. She is very caring.
Simone was awesome to deal with. She was there for us on short notice. She kept us informed on how Foxy was doing daily. We would highly reccomend her and are sure that we will be using her again in the near future.
I had to find someone at the last minute to watch Chloe when my previously plans fell through. I contacted Simone F very last minute; she was able to watch Chloe.
She sent numerous pics every day which really helped me not worry about how Chloe was doing - I could tell Chloe was having a great time.
Simone was warm and welcoming.... I felt very comfortable leaving Chloe with her and will do so again in the future.

I was very nervous leaving my two dogs for four days. I have never left them with anyone but family. I went to meet Simone and her husband a few days before I lefton vacation and right away I felt they were very good animal people. Simone was awesome. She was very flexible in the time I could drop off and pick up my dogs. She was very knowledgeable on dog care and seemed to truly care about my dogs. She sent me lots of pictures of my dogs so that I could see how they were doing. I also really appreciated her keeping the dogs in the house and even letting them sleep close to her at night so that my dogs felt more secure. I will definitely use her again and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Simone is an amazing woman. My dog who was new to dog boarding felt right at home. I will take my dog back! Yo had a great experience and so did I.
FIVESTAR EXCELLENT

My decision to trust Simone F. with my dog Bear has been fully justified...a really good decision!!!. Simone gave intelligent, attentive care to Bear...and, she met my needs for reassurance (I have never had to leave Bear with someone before).

Simone provided a warm, safe, happy, and loving place in her home for my dog during my 13 day trip. Her own "pack" made Bear's stay really a special time. He now has new friends, as do I!

I happily recommend Simone without reservation!
