About paula

43 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We "Sit" so your pet can "Stay"!
We offer customized pet sitting services including pet sitting "in your home" and dog boarding "in our home". Pet Taxi is also available for taking your pets to the vet, groomer or anywhere they need to go.
We have many returning doggie guests to our home. Their owners know that when they pick their pooch up, they are coming home to a happy and healthy dog. We are in the country and have both a fenced in front yard and a separate fenced in back yard for our guests to play in. We do NOT KENNEL. Your pet is part of our family. We do not charge extra for giving meds. We do not charge extra for playtime with your pooch. We give your furbaby lots of TLC! That is what being part of our family is all about!
We have great success at making your furbaby feel right at home!
I have been fostering dogs for over 16 years with Volunteers For Animal Welfare, a non profit animal rescue organization that I co-founded. Having fostered in my home hundreds of rescued dogs of various breeds, personalities and behaviors; also working for a veterinarian for 4 years and working at an animal shelter has provided me with much experience and knowledge to be more dog savvy than the average person. My husband is as much a dog lover as I am and is retired now...and caring for fur-kids is my only job....so someone is always at home to care for our furbaby guests.

Paula was great with my two dogs! They loved it there! And we will be going back to her for any doggy care needs!
I am so thankful for Paula and how well she takes care of my dog, Leo. She always provides me with photos of him and his new "friends." He always has such a great time playing with the other dogs. I would recommend Paula to anyone looking for a trustworthy pet-sitting service.

I know my dogs had the BEST time with Paula. She gave them lots of love and treated my pets like her own. Thank you!!! Plus my dog Zelda got to enjoy the giant back yard and run free - our own yard is small and otherwise my dog never gets to enjoy big runs off leash.

Leo LOVES going to Paula's and even knows as we start making turns as we're driving and starts getting so excited! This visit in particular was of an urgent nature and we're so thankful Paula was able to oblige. She's wonderful with the dogs (Leo told us!) and loves them all! Leo goes to Paula's often. Wouldn't take him anywhere else!

Paula was laid back and friendly. It was the first time leaving my puppy and I felt very comfortable leaving him there. Going to her house was like going to camp for our pup. She has a very nice home on a large plot of land with a fenced in back and front yard. It's in a beautiful area with lots of trees and green grass. We live in the city so our puppy had a blast playing outside with the other dogs that were there. Paula sent me a picture every other day and was happy to chat when I occasionally called and checked in on him. I have already recommended her to several friends.

Our 16 month Welsh Terrier had a very good time. He played hard and we feel he loved his dog vacay!
Another great visit for Calvin. Thanks Paula!
Paula took such great care of Calvin! I received pictures of him and his buddies everyday. I will never again feel guilty about leaving him behind while on vacation. Highly recommended.
Sydney always has a great time with Paula. See you again soon!
Sydney always comes home a happy puppy! Thanks Paula, we will see you again soon!
Sydney had a great time staying with Paula and we are happy to have someone close to home we can depend on sitting her. Thanks, Paula!
Paula and Ken are caring, competent, experienced providers. Our "boys" march right into the house when we arrive, and they are happy when we pick them up. We have boarded at Paula and Ken's several times, and we have been pleased every time.
I met Paula about a week or so before I dropped my dogs off. Both of my dogs took to her right away. Paula is so sweet and you can tell she loves animals and what she does. I felt totally comfortable when it was time to drop them off. Her husband is as nice as she is! She has a lovely home and more than enough yard for them to run around and play. My dogs were acting like they owned the place even before I left so you know they were relaxed and comfortable there. If you are looking for a sitter for your animals I highly recommend Paula. She also sent me pictures and updates throughout the time they were with her. I can not say enough great things about her and my experience!

This was a return visit to Paula B. for Leo. He absolutely LOVES it there! We are so appreciative of knowing that he is well taken care of and has "friends" to play with at Paula B's. He has so much fun he comes home and sleeps for an entire day! Or maybe he is just missing Ms. Paula and his friends.

Leo always has a great time at Paula B's and is well taken care of! He loves having other dogs to play with and plays so hard, he's just "plum tuckered out" when he gets home! I would recommend Paula B to anyone for your dog-sitting needs!
Our original house sitter backed out on is so we went in search of a reputable place for our dogs to stay. They had never been in a kennel before and so we were lucky enough to come across Paula's kennel free home. She allowed for me and my pups to come and have a visit before our stay. While on vacation, she sent is several photos and our dogs looked quite at home and comfortable. This really helped me relax while away. Paula will now be out permanent dog sitter. She was amazing! Thanks so much for taking such great care of Charlie and Lily!

Nanny Paula took such great care of my Olive. I felt so relaxed to leave her at Paula's house. She assured me Olive would be loved and cared for and she was. As a blind, senior dog, I was worried Olive would not do well around other dogs in a strange home. Paula sent me daily pics and updates and I knew right away she was relaxed, sleeping and eating good. It was like I sent her to Grandma's house for the week. She took great care of my baby. I give her the highest rating as a caretaker.

Return customer and plan to be again. They love dogs and it shows. Thanks Paula for taking such great care of our big baby :)
Paula B. was awesome, we have two very active dogs and they took such good care of them. We will be seeing her again.
This was Lefty's second visit here and he was very obviously happy to see Paula and Ken. I never got that kind of reaction when I left him at the kennel I used before, which was a very nice one. It made the trip so much more enjoyable to know that he, too, was having a good time. Highly recommend!!

Paula was great!! Pitch loved her and the other dogs there. He didn't want to leave! I will be using her again!
Leaving my furbaby with Paula was like
leaving her with a family member - my husband and I had the peace of mind knowing she was in good hands while we enjoyed our vacation. Her 'puppy energy' was put to the test running around and playing with the other dogs there - we brought home a tired, happy, and healthy dog - just what we were hoping for. :) Would highly recommend Paula!!

Paula is wonderful! She has a beautiful home in the country with lots of room for dogs to run and play. She kept our 11 month old puppy that we rescued, she has some health issues and Paula gave her medicine and followed her special diet. Paula also sent us daily updates and pictures which my kids LOVED! Our dog, Lucy, will definitely visit Paula again!

Our 13 year old Lab Jessie, had a blast staying with Paula, this is the first time we came home from a vacation to find our dog soo happy!! Paula kept us updated with pictures while we were gone and I didn't worry at all!! I can't wait to book again and I highly recommend Paula for a dog sitter!!

What a relief to find a great place in the country where Lefty wouldn't be caged up at all. He's used to being around people 24/7 and got to make a lot of new dog friends to boot. As long as Paula and Ken are in business, I will never again feel guilty about leaving him to go on vacation. Recommend highly!!

I am so happy that I chose Paula to watch Chip while I was out of town! It was my first time having him boarded so I was pretty nervous, but I felt better as soon as we arrived at Paula's house. There was a lot of fenced yard space for him to run around in and the house was a good size that he was free to explore. She uploaded a number of pictures throughout the weekend to show him adjusting to the new place and that eased my mind more than anything else could have. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone in the area!

Our dog is a big boy and while he is very sociable, he is not always easy to handle. Paula and Ken (very nice people who love dogs) knew how to deal with him. Chet spent 5 days with them and he had a blast. He got people and dog time which he loved - much better than being at a regular kennel. They have a fenced yard and he was able to spend plenty of time outside. We were able to take his crate and bed so he would feel at home at night. Paula sent pictures and messages and told us to call if we wanted. This being his 1st time at Furbabies, made us feel better. We will be taking him back!

We had our dog Chase stay with Paula and her husband (and their doggy crew) while we enjoyed a family vacation. Not only did they provide exceptional care for Chase, they also provided several updates that made us feel better knowing he was in good hands. Chase has always been an anxious dog and I know he was well taken care of there as most of the time when he is away from us he returns depleted & exhausted. However, coming home from Paula's he was just happy to see us and his usual self. Paula even sent us several pictures of Chase enjoying his stay which our kids just loved! Thank you so much to Paula & co. for providing the same loving care to our family member as you do your own. If ever in the area again, I would most certainly use her to care for Chase again!

This was our 10yr old dog's first sleepover and Paula took great care of him. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks Paula!
I was thrilled that we found Paula to take care of our baby. He had a great time and even came home with a possible girlfriend Foster Doggy :) Thanks again Paula Shari
