About Stephen

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have a large, 2 level deck that overlooks the fenced backyard with large trees and lots of play room. I'm in a quiet, older subdivision, that I've enjoyed now for 15 years. A doggie door in the kitchen door, gives access to the yard at times when I can supervise. Pretty much the whole house is free to feel at home in and explore. I make certain that all dogs get along, (and take the time to evaluate this properly) before allowing them time together, which I still supervise. Safety is the first priority, and lots of loving attention and play time is guaranteed.
Plus, my being a full time veterinary tech at a close by, excellent veterinary clinic, will give you more peace of mind, especially if your dog has special needs or is on any medications.

Stephen was so wonderful! He has watched our pups twice now, and each time he is willing to help us out last minute. The pups are also glowing with happiness and love Stephen as well.
Stephen was a lifesaver, taking a VERY last-minute reservation after other pet care arrangements fell through. I'm so appreciative! Naturally, I was very nervous leaving my Barkley with a new person, but Stephen picked him up and began petting him right away. He sent me updates/photos of Barkley while I was away, which I greatly appreciated. The only drawback was that I did not get an opportunity to see much of the house where Barkley would stay before leaving him for the weekend (only the foyer). Otherwise, a perfect stay!
