About Jill

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Finley and I are getting ready to retire and want to give your dog a place to hang out while you are away.
We have a king bed so there is lots of room for you to snuggle in and watch Netflix or hang out on our deck soaking up the sunshine with us.
Our fenced in backyard is great for ripping around or just out there to do your 'business'
Clayton Park is just off the highway and central to Dartmouth, Bedford and Lower Sackville

Finley and I have traveled all over North America competing in conformation and dog trials. So far we have obtained American, Canadian and European Championships and 5 titles.

I founded and run Italian Greyhound Fanciers for socialization, education and pet placements for US breeders and find great joy in helping people get a dog.

Halifax Kennel Club - member (former secretary)
Canadian Kennel Club - former member
Italian Greyhound Club of Canada - member (former Atlantic Director)

We are 'piddle pad' friendly for small dogs
You don't need to bring anything besides food as we have beds, toys, treats everything your dogs will need during their stay.

I have weekly rates, just send me a message for a quote.

I have known Jill for several years. We met through our Italian Greyhounds. She has assisted me in placement of rescue dogs and follows through and supports the new homes. She is kind and gentle with the dogs and they know it .

Her intuitiveness with Animals; being dog cat or birds they seem to gravitate to her. She is a gentle soul and they know it. Her ability to pick up on their needs is amazing to watch. Some people have the gift. Wish she lived closer to me now. Pam

Jill is the only person I would trust with my girl. It is truly a home away from home with as much love and caring as I give to my Zoe. Zoe can't wait to stay with Jill each time. She happily runs in and right to Jill. I have left Zoe with Jill for part days to as long as 18 days and each time she has had a wonderful time! It is such peace of mind when I leave her there to know she is being treated just like family.

Six years after getting our dog, we finally decided to try leaving her with a sitter in order for us to take a real vacation. We were so scared! Turns out we had NOTHING to worry about! Jill exceeded all our expectations. She kept in touch with us, sent us pictures, asked questions when she wasn't sure about something, and our dog came back to us very happy! Jill is very friendly, outgoing, and her genuine love of dogs is very apparent. We are relieved and feel very luck to have found her - we certainly won't be waiting another 6 years for our next trip! Thank you Jill!!
