About Heather

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We live right by the Fort Rucker Ozark Gate and can watch your dog(s) if you need to head out of town overnight, or just need a sitter for the day. Our German Shepherd Dog, Daisy, is a wonderful female that we rescued several years ago from being "puppy milled" as a mother. She is gentle, non-aggressive, loyal, and will soak up all the attention she can get! She has never bitten a person or another dog and plays very well with others, including children. We also have a cat that is non-aggressive and is also a rescue. If he is afraid of your dog(s), he will hide somewhere they cannot reach (his cat condo).

We have a very large backyard to play in and we like to go on walks at the Police Memorial Park. There is one 8-year-old child in our home that loves dogs and will be very helpful with cuddles, baths, walks, play time, etc. We use our pickup truck to transport our very large dog and will transport your dog(s) the same way if necessary. Small breed dogs can be in the cab if they are in a kennel. In our home, dogs are not allowed on the furniture, but they can have as many dog beds/blankets as you would like to supply!

If your dog needs basic training, we can help with initial steps such as: sit, lay down, stay/wait, "drop it" (for toys), "okay" (or another release word), etc. We are a health conscious home and will never feed your dogs human food or scraps.

If your dog has separation anxiety, have no fear! When we rescued Daisy, she had an insane amount of separation anxiety that we were unaware of until we left to grocery shop one of the first evenings we had her. Her previous life was full of neglect and abuse and she was never without the company of humans, her puppies, other small dogs, or her sire. Our attempts at putting her in a large kennel while we stepped out for an hour or so, failed. She chewed through the plastic kennel so much that there was blood. We decided that we could never crate or kennel her and trained her with other methods. She now has a bed that she knows is her "spot" and she can be left unattended in the house for many hours without any anxiety or stress. With the proper patience, guidance, and love, any pet can be trained!

My dogs had a great time with Heather and her family! She sent lots of pictures throughout the stay and took the time to make sure the pups were having fun- they even went to the dog park!
Heather kept my mother's dog Faith for a couple of days when we were traveling. Faith has isolation anxiety, so regular kennels are not an option. Both mom and dog were very happy with Heather's careā€”it really couldn't have been better! We were able to enjoy our visit without worrying about her, and were entertained with all of the photos of her that Heather sent. Highly recommend! Heather provides a great service!
