About Colleen

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My husband and I are empty-nesters. This has become the perfect time to fill our home with doggie vacationers. We raised our sons with golden retrievers and both have great respect and love for animals.
Hannah, our 9 year old girl, has a wonderful life a block from the beach where she swims to "retrieve" balls in the waves. She is a gentle sweet trained "therapy dog" who has a calming nature on any dog who comes to stay.
A typical day for Hannah includes a walk to the beach, through the local "forest" or to the Capitola pier where we have a water/coffee break before we head home!
Taking care of someone's pet is a big responsibility. I will take the same care of your canine family member as I do Hannah.

My mother is the most patient, caring and attentive dog-mom you'll find. She has raised wonderful canine companions throughout my life. She even takes better care of my dogs than I do, and that's saying something!
