About Spencer

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My girlfriend and a live in a safe comfy home in East Garfield Park, just a short walk away from the conservatory. We lived here with our two dogs for many years, but are now dog free, and have a lovely home to offer for any furry over night guests or visitors. Given that we work from home, this guarantees that there will always be adult human supervision. We have a nice back deck, spacious back yard and front porch for lounging. We have a dog beds upstairs and down and a basement that's nice and cool in the summer time. We eagerly await any new furry friends who would be able to come for a visit.

P.S. no dogs with incontinence or any potty related issues, also no older dogs with extreme physical restrictions.

Spencer and Arleen live in a single family home in the quiet East Garfield Park neighborhood. Their home is three floors with a patio and large grassy fenced yard. There is lots of room for your pup to play and rest comfortably. Street parking is easy to find which will make drop off and pick up stress free.

Although they currently pet free, Spencer and Arleen have cared for their own dogs through their senior years. They understand that all dogs have different needs and are willing to accommodate your pup.
Spencer and Arleen both work from home so your pup will always have someone around to care for them. They are able to accommodate dogs up to 80 pounds as well as with special needs.

Spencer and Arleen will give your pooch all the love, attention, and exercise needed for an enjoyable and safe vacay!
Erica was an awesome host! We had an open ended stay and she was extremely flexible with setting up additional time as needed.

When the food supply we had brought ran low she made it very easy to replenish, and made it simple to get Thalia back home when her stay was over.

We were never short of pictures of an extremely happy pup, with lots of playing and romping around.

As far as we can tell, Thalia enjoyed being at Erica's way more than going to a dog daycare place, and Erica will now be our preferred option when Thalia needs a place to stay!
Spencer did a great job taking care of Hiro during our vacation. She was well taken care of and we had no issues.
Spencer and Arlene were so nice. My dog is in a place age wise that he is starting to fail and it was great that they a) were willing to take care of him and be flexible about what that looks like; and b) they were gracious about it all.

Overall, I thought the care was good and that it was a reliable and positive experience.
