About Terry

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
You have to go away and need to board your best friend. The thought of boarding at a kennel stresses both of you.

So what now?

Give me a call...

I've loved dogs all my life and couldn't imagine life without them. I have two black lab mix rescues that love to have friends visit. I also have a cat who is used to having dogs around.

In the comfort of my home your dog will receive the individual attention they deserve. We'll go for walks around Sassaquin Pond, they will get to play with my dogs, and when they are nice and tired, they can take a nap on the couch!

Your dog will not be separated from others by a kennel, left alone at night, or plea for individual attention. Instead, they will be able to go outside as much as they need, have access to the entire house as they please, and receive undivided attention and lots of hugs!

We do work outside the home during the week but the dogs have the run of the house. Arrangements can be made to have someone come during the day to let them out for a potty break if necessary.

If you are interested and would like to schedule a meet & greet or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Please note that an overnight stay of more than 24 hours will also require a $20 day rate. We request that your dogs are fully vaccinated and on flea/tick prevention in order to protect our own dogs.

I was so happy to meet Terry and her dogs. My dog enjoyed playing with her three loveable dogs. She especially loved getting "belly rubs" and sleeping on the couch.

Terry updated me with photos frequently while I was on vacation. I could tell that Princess was being well cared for. I have already recommended her to my family members who have dogs.

I know that when I plan my next vacation, Princess will be having her vacation with Terry.

Shiloh just finished up her second stay with Terry and her family. She is a fantastic host!

With this past visit, we encountered an unexpected obstacle. Shiloh was not super into one of Terry's new resident dogs, Praline. As Shiloh has aged, it seems that her tolerance for the enthusiasm of younger dogs has declined some.

As soon as Terry realized that Shiloh wasn't herself, she contacted me. We talked through what was happening I was assured that things would be okay. She quickly adjusted her approach as to how to socialize Shiloh and Praline. She did a super job keeping me informed of how things were going. Within a short time, things had completely turned around. Terry was able to handle the situation like an expert, without any concern. Sometimes new friends need a longer warming up period, I guess. Shiloh is even going for another Stay with Terry, Praline and the rest of the family coming up in September!

Terry is a dog lover. She is observant, loving, patient and informative. EXACTLY the type of person I feel confident leaving my fur-kid with!

Terry was an excellent host for our dog Shiloh. She was accommodating with times, and always quick with replies. She took the extra time to update us with texts and pictures during Shioh's stay. I felt Terry truly enjoyed having our dog stay with her, which to me makes her the perfect person to watch her. We are very happy to finally have a safe and caring person to take our dog into their home while we are away.

I can trust that my dog will be well taken care of whenever I bring him to Terry.
Our Tucker had a wonderful 5 day stay with Terry and company! This was Tuckers second time visiting and he always comes home seeming happy and unstressed from our time away. I love getting photos showing what Tucker is up to while we're gone and messages letting us know how he's doing. So glad to have found Terry, it makes planning a trip much more fun knowing Tucker has a great place to stay while we're away.

Terry is the best! Updates with pics. Our dog was very well cared for!
Chewie had his 1st Vacay with Terry. She and her husband made sure that he was well taken care of and had fun with their host dogs. I appreciate the daily updates on Chewie's activities. He had fun and was loved. Chewie would be thrilled to have another vacay at Terry's in the future!

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations for our Shiloh. Terry was a fantastic hostess, providing our fur-kid with all of the congrats of home.

Terry's home was a wonderful environment for dogs. I'm surprised Shiloh wanted to come home! She cared for our love as she would have her own. Terry is a great person and a wonderful pet care provider. I would recommend her to anyone!

Terry is the BEST!!! What else is there to say?

I love my 4-legged boy more than words can say and I am very picky about who I let take care of him. In the two years I have lived in Providence, I have only allowed 1 person to take care of Guinness when I am away: Terry. I trust her completely because she takes such good care of him. Also, if you ever saw how insanely excited he gets when going to her house, you would know this dog LOVES being with her and her 4-legged pals as well.

She is 40 minutes away but I would drive another 40 if I had to so she could take care of him. Thank you Terry for your outstanding care of my boy!

Terry watched Emma while we were away for the holidays. We wish we could've flown our dog across the country to spend the week with us, but we felt relaxed and at ease knowing Emma was with a great host!
Terry is the best! She gives our dog Emma the best care while we are away. Emma had the a great first Halloween!
Terry was absolutely fantastic. Charlie loved her and she took really good care of him. I would definitely leave him with her again and know that he is in good hands. I would recommend to her to anyone who is new to this site.
Terry was fantastic! Bosco was so happy staying with her and was comfortable very quickly. Terry was great sending me regular updates and pictures of Bosco and was very quick to respond with inquiries. Bosco looks forward to his next visit to his new home away from home!!

Terry took excellent care of our dog! She sent us pics everyday and a few videos too! Our dog came right home and laid down worn out from a great time with Terry and her two dogs! We would highly recommend her. I think she somehow worked magic in the "getting our dog to walk without pulling" department as well!

Terry was wonderful and made Thor feel very special!
Thanks!
Thanks!
This is Mazie's second stay with Terry P. She was well taken care of and loved again! Terry is a true animal lover. I highly recommend having Terry P. watch your pet!
Terry was very easy to work with and Wiggum loved our meet & greet and his time with her. I would absolutely use Terry in the future!
Zellie had a great time she didn't want to leave
From the moment of the meet n' greet I felt very comfortable that my 3 girls would be well cared for. Then speaking with her and finding her true love and caring for animals, I was totally at ease.
But during their stay, she exceded my expectations. They became part of her family in group activities and then all got special individual time.
Terry is truely a special person which you will see immediately when you meet her.

Sammy's visit with Terry and family was just what Sammy needed. She and her three dogs gave him all the attention and playtime he needed while away from us. Her home was Sammy's home.
Terry has been fantastic and Prince enjoyed the stay!!!
Great sitter! Terry really made us feel comfortable with leaving our dog with her while on vacation. From the beginning she was great to communicate with. She answered all our questions and concerns at the meet and greet. During our time away, she sent us updates and pictures that not only made us laugh but also helped us to enjoy our time knowing our pet was having her own little vacation. She tool care of our dog as if it were her own pets. Now I have someone I trust to watch our "baby" if we have to go away on a trip.

Terry was great, she was very flexible and was able to accommodate our changing schedule. Most importantly our dog Jack had a great time playing with her dogs, as was evident by her several picture uploads. Thanks again Terry!
Rocko had a wonderful time. Terri was a great host and kept us up to date with daily photos. I will definitely use her again.
Wonderful!!! Terry is awesome! A true dog lover! I felt comfortable the moment we walked into Terry's backyard! Our dog Mazie felt right at home also! She had a great time playing with her three Labs! She sent pictures during Mazie's stay which was so nice. I would use Terry again in a minute!
