Faith is amazing with dogs! Very dependable and can handle even walking multiple BIG DOGS! :) She is also very professional. I give her my highest recommendation.

Faith is a great host! She provided a warm and loving environment for my fur baby Lady. This was my first time being away without Lady, so i was pretty nervous. After meeting Faith and her fur babies, I knew Lady would be just fine. I think I missed her more than she missed me! I received pics and updates on Lady's stay, it made me feel happy to see she was having fun. I will definitely be contacting Faith for the next time I'm away.

Our 8 month old terrorist (oops, dog) Diesel had the pleasure of two GREAT visits with Faith.

Communicating with Faith was super easy and quick. She responded very quickly to my initial and subsequent email's and set up a call to discuss our situation. She asked great questions and it was quickly apparent to me that she knew how to handle dogs.

Arriving at her home for the Meet and Greet we met Faith, one of her dogs and her two boys. Our puppy, is a stray with no manners and no previous training who we rescued. We have been busy training him but he quickly showed that while his behavior at home had become pretty well controlled, he clearly was not ready for two young children. He ran through Faith's house like a whirling dervish, chasing her boys and bouncing from couch to floor to chair to wall and back all the while trying to lick her kids.

While my wife and I stood there mortified, Faith remained amazingly calm, explaining to the boys how to behave to help, while at the same time calling Diesel to her and getting him to stop, sit and refocus. While Diesel's "good" behavior didn't last long, Faith never lost her cool, again and again calming Diesel down, assuring my wife and I that all was well and talking to her boys. She was amazing.

Diesel visited Faith again for a 4 hour stay last Friday. He happily played with her dogs, took a long walk, and played ball in the yard with Faith. He came home tired and happy; a great afternoon.

I cannot say enough positive things about how well our dog was treated while we were away. Our Brady is almost 12 years old and becoming more anxious as he gets older. As he gets anxious we do too and leaving him for a few days felt gut-wrenching until we met Faith. Faith requested to drive to our home to meet Brady on his own turf and that suggestion truly helped Brady when he was dropped off at her home. Some of Brady’s quirks: he can’t be left alone; he sometimes stops eating and severely shakes prior and during thunderstorms. Faith took him on even with all this information provided to her. Faith sent a few pictures a day and we could tell by looking at those pictures that Brady was happy and feeling safe. He also had the benefit of making friends with Faith’s 2 dogs. Faith is active and walked all three dogs with ease and care. When I picked Brady up it was as if he had decided to stay! He was in great spirits, shape and was content. We could not have asked for a better experience and will be requesting Faith whenever we need Brady to be watched. This was the first time ever that we felt good about where he was and that knowledge allowed us to truly enjoy our time away without worry. If there is a desire to speak to me regarding our experience please email or call and I would be happy to talk about this wonderful wonderful experience!!
