About Vinson

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have owned seven dogs over the years. From a Doberman to a Pomeranian. I now am the proud owner of Schatzi, my Jack Russell Terrier. He is friendly with all other pets. He is active, loves to run, fetch, and gets
along well with all animals. I am a fun-
loving owner and I love my dog with all
my heart.

The first (and definitely last) time I
boarded my dog in a kennel for 8 days
was an awful experience for both of us.
I will NEVER do it again. They did not
give him his toys or his bedding and
sent me home with an unopened bag of
his favorite treats. He was drugged so
much that he could not lift his head for
days. This is the reason why I want
owners to have a safer and more caring
option. I will NOT sequester, cage, or
ignore your pups.

I use a safe top-of-the-line home
defense insect killer inside and outside
of the house before your babies arrive
and after they leave. It is important that
neither of us have problems in that
department.

I have a 2,500 square-foot home, which
I own, with a large, privately fenced-in
backyard with a deck. I work from home
so I am always here which makes me a
great candidate.

I'm in a central location nestled between Tampa and Orlando. I only watch one family's pups at a time so
that your babies will be the only one's
here.

Since I am a research fanatic, I pride
myself on learning the most about the
breed of your babies before you arrive.

Avoid bringing plush or squeaky toys.
Schatzi doesn't chew on anything in the
house, but he has a strange aversion
towards plush toys and tennis balls and
tends to destroy them in a matter of
minutes. If I buy a squeaky toy for him I
always remove the plastic squeaky part
for fear of him choking on it. My little
man uses Advantix flea prevention. He
also has Trifexus once a year. Please
try to use it (or a comparable product)
on your babies.

PLEASE NOTE: Drop off times should be no earlier than 8 a.m. And pickup times should be no later than 10 p.m.

***Rates are doubled on the following holidays: Christmas Day, Thanksgiving
Day, and New Year's Eve Day.***

Vinson was a great host to our baby girl! Of course we were nervous about leaving her a couple of nights with someone she never met! But Vinson did a great job with her! As excited as she was to see us when we returned, it was easy to see she already loved Vinson as well. We will definitely have him host our baby next time we need a sitter!

Vinson is top notch and we all love him!
Vinson took care of Diogi as if he were his own pup. Diogi had plenty of outside play time. He adjusted quickly to being dropped off (this was his first time), and Vinson sent pics of him throughout the week so I felt completely comfortable. A happy dog makes a happy dog mommy!
