About Heather

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have more than 10 years of experience taking care of pets of all types and sizes, including pets with special needs, puppies, and seniors. I have adopted every dog I've ever had and enjoy taking care of animals. Some of my past clients include post-surgery pups, dogs with leash aggression, animals with a history of abuse, separation anxiety, and others. I'd be happy to discuss your particular needs and provide the best possible care for your pup. Before booking, I would like to meet with you to discuss your pet's needs and to learn about their habits, preferences, and routine so I can do my best to make sure they are comfortable while you're away.

If your pet stays with me, I live very close to a park and several great walking paths to get your pup's exercise in. I also have a vehicle and can take pups to the dog park if they are comfortable there. I have a dog of my own, Patty the Puggle, who loves having guests and who is eager to join in playtime or to hang out chewing on a bone. If your pup is not a big player, she will typically play by herself and nap throughout the day.

I work from home as a professional photographer and freelancer, so your pets will have a lot of attention and care throughout the day. My husband has a more flexible schedule and is home throughout most of the day during the week. Please contact me with any questions and I look forward to taking care of your furry friends.

Heather was great! I would definitely book again!
Excellent. Very pleased with Heather's care of our dogs and would happily use her services again.
Heather was great. She made my dog feel comfortable during the meet and greet, and sent regular updates during my dog's stay.
