#Currently booking Christmas & New Year's dates. Securing a booking depends on a successful Meet n Greet. Thank you for your understanding.
NOTICE: Your pup(s) (children to some) are PRICELESS! Seeing a low rate on this site can be very appealing and may make you wonder why other rates are higher. But leaving your loved one in someone's care requires that that person has a vast amount experience caring & handling canines, is a responsible, fast, forward thinker who can handle emergencies and understands how a canine typically thinks. This as not a hobby nor a way to make a extra cash from time to time. This is my full time profession were I reinvest in myself for the good of my clients by going to continued educational industry seminars, joining industry groups and practicing what I've been taught. That, plus the number of excellent client testimonials is what I believe what sets us apart from others. Thank you.

We love & host all breeds but we do have a soft spot for "Bully Breeds" like Akitas, Rotties, Pits and Dobies. They get such a bad rap and that prejudice will change the more we in the dog world continue to educated people how wonderful they truly are.
Sitter's Beliefs & Practices
I have a soft spot for all creatures but my love for dogs wins hands down. Dogs have feelings & are smart. For all the love that dogs give they should never suffer-- not one day in their lives. There is something about dogs that steals my heart-- maybe its their innocence, their vulnerability, their loyalty despite how they've been treated or their forgiveness...maybe its all of it? I try to think of everything they may need & provide for them while tapping into their souls connecting on a much higher level. I do all I can to make it easy for them to convey what they want. Believe me they have plenty to say! I don't see them as dogs I see them as children who have a hard time communicating. Dogs need to be respected, understood & taken care of. They didn't select their owners or living conditions. Because of that we all have a responsibility to keep them safe, raise them right & keep them with us until God decides its time for them to go to Heaven. If you can't do these things for them then don't own one!
I keep a close eye on them & seldom leave the home while in my care. If I have to go grocery shopping or walk another pup at a client's home then they are securely crated for the shortest amount of time as will my two to ensure their safety.
If you give us your permission we will take them for the ride and for a nominal fee will take them on a Dog Park trip. * See Rate above.
I am Pro Adoption. My mind was changed when we adopted our two. Prior to my current two we picked up strays or bought. So many need to be rescued. We support the efforts of all dog rescue groups but especially for Mountain Rottie Rescue & Labs4Rescue, (L4R). I am active on Facebook when helping to place dogs & have been successful with the help of groups we know.

Why I love dog sitting...
I have been a dog lover my whole life. I can't bare to see an animal of any kind let alone dogs get hurt or deliberately abused by their owner or anyone else for that matter. We are all about providing a safe sanctuary for them to live without fear & to provide love whether they are ours or not. We are here to build trust & provide a wonderful experience so that they are eager to come back & stay again & again.
I've worked with dogs who have are aggressive, pulled on leash, picky eaters, on special diets, who avoid taking their medication (yes, we can administer their injections too), who are afraid of thunder, who are lame, seniors, pups, etc.
Meet my pets
We live with a super sweet extremely social, middle-aged male Rottie & a younger, playful female Yellow Labrador. They are not yard dogs. They are seriously SPOILED!!! Blue Buffalo, raw foods, homemade chicken soup & vitamins, morning massages (zen time) & monthly baths all to keep them strong & afford them a chance to live a long, happy & comfortable life. They have the freedom of the first floor (1500 sq ft) in our home & they love to go bye-bye in our Designated Doggie SUV especially to the Dog Park.
We live on 1.46 acres in a gated community with lakes & lots of space to walk. Our block is on a secluded cul-de-sac with a ball field steps away where we play fetch, walk around & sit relaxing as we listen to & watch nature.
My yard is not fenced in however, we can provide a 30 foot leash that covers a lot of area on our walks..
Meet & Greet (Required to determine if a good fit.) A proper introduction is key to success. Please schedule a date & time at least a few days prior to your pup's stay to determine a good fit. Typically speaking we have a 99% success rate, however there are times when pups (or parents) are not a good match with our pups or practices. Out of town? We can accept your dog, however if they do not gel well your dog will be kept in a sectioned off area of my home, typically kitchen. After you depart & things quiet down again we will re-attempt a formal introduction outside & go for another pack walk & that most often does the trick. If this does not work I will make a determination whether to continue working with your pup on socialization skills or ultimately keep them sectioned off in the kitchen while I'm on the 1st floor for the remainder of their stay.)
Must be well socialized with other dogs and people.
*Note: Socialization is the best practice for their well-being. It is especially important for successful Meet & Greets. The best way to socialize is taking your dog(s) to the Dog Park so they can learn the skills they need to acclimate to other dog(s) while in a safe and contained area. This will help them immensely when being hosted.
My home is large & can accommodate up to 3 additional guests. Please be sure this is ok with you.
