About Denise

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your pup will be very well cared for when they stay with me. I am a certified dog trainer and have been training and boarding for 20 yrs. I work closely with rescues and animal shelters. I accept all dogs in my home after we have an initial meeting and evaluation. However, I do have some guid lines, so please read through my profile to ensure we are a match. I work by appointment, so am rarely gone for more than two hours at a time. I am home a lot, and most evenings. However, I cannot take dogs with severe separation anxiety. Please, no dog/aggressive dogs of any breed, or any dogs with a bite history, Dogs must be well socialized to come here. All adult dogs must be neutered. My two dogs are very friendly and stable, and do well with making other dogs feel comfortable. Your dog can sleep anywhere he likes including the bed if thats allowed. The fee for pups under one year is $50. (puppy training) We have a large grassy backyard that is very safe, and always padlocked. During the day, while I am home, your dogs will have indoor/outdoor access and lots of time playing outside. All doors are double gated. I am extremely careful with your dog, and will treat it as my own pet. I am happy to work on training your dog if you would like for additional fee, we can discuss this at meet and greet. Also prices are for a 24hour period. If your dog stays past the 24hr period there will be a day boarding fee added of $25. For example, if you drop off friday morning, to sunday night, that would be two nights and one day boarding, this is especially important to note for those just wanting one night, a weekend or holidays. (Longer stays can be more flexible) Drop off times and pick up times between 8am and 10pm. Thanks and I look forward to meeting your kids!

Denise was awesome with Niko! She accommodated him with fairly short notice and I had no worries while we were on our weekend getaway. We will definitely use her again. Highly recommend!
Denise was a wonderful choice to watch my dog, Pearl. Pearl is usually very timid around new people, but she immediately took to Denise. Denise has many fail-safes installed in her home to ensure the security of the pet. She understands how to introduce dogs into a new environment as well as how to introduce dogs to each other, which is extremely important when multiple dogs are in the home. I would recommend this dog sitter to anyone who asked. Very pleased with Denise!
Absolutely fabulous! Buster had a great time and we were quite pleased with Denise and the service she provided.
Denise was great. We were looking for a reliable and experienced dog sitter and that is just what we got with Denise. Our initial meet and greet went very well and we felt at ease leaving Bailey (our Boxer) with Denise. When we picked Bailey up, she acted like just like herself! We could tell she was well taken care of. We will definitely plan on re-booking with Denise!
Izzy had a pawsome stay! This was our first time using this site. Denise was an awesome host. She was reassuring. It was evident that she loves dogs and takes good care of all of them as her own. It was a welcomed bonus to get training tips! It's great to be confident that Izzy was in good professional hands while we were away! Thanks
I can't say enough good things about my dog Jake's great experience as Denise's guest !

She requires a "meet and greet" prior to any stay and I do too. I knew the minute we arrived at her home for same that she would be perfect. She is extremely professional and extremely aware of the dog's mind set and behavior and more than capable of avoiding any possible problems.

Our dog had a wonderful overnight stay because Denise understood his abandonment "issues" (he's a 110 lb lab rescue we were blessed with 2 years ago). She went above and beyond to accomodate his needs.

I was able to enjoy my trip with complete confidence that he was absolutely safe and happy.

I strongly recommend her.

Used Denise after previous Vacay sitter left our area. She definitely is keenly aware of dog and human interaction, and conducts her meet and greets throughly, to assess everyone! (dog and human) She has a wonderful place and a HUGE well kept yard! Regular updates were appreciated. Our Elsie was 'played out' after her stay. Will for sure use her again and recommend her to all of Alan's old clients.
Fabulous! Buster had a great time~Denise is a true gem! So happy to have found her. Will use her services again.
Denise is wonderful and is so caring and genuine with our dog.
Amazing care. My puppy was so tired, when we got home, that she slept for the rest of the afternoon.
It was our first time leaving our baby Diego. Denise was very experienced and right away made him feel safe, which comforted and made us feel at ease. She also gave us great tips since we are first time dog owners. Already, looking into booking her again!
