About Ron

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Let me introduce myself. My wife and I began raising puppies in 1973 until recently when my father and her mother needed care that didn't allow us time to do both. People who purchased from us in the past often call telling us how they loved their dog and are we still raising dogs. It's always hard to tell them we had to stop, but a compliment when they ask if we know of any we could recommend, because they trust our judgment.
Living on just over an acre we have a great fenced area for your pet to play, and the experience to know what to do if anything unforeseen were to happen.
One of our dogs (kennel name Tea) was National Field Champion in 1999. That year she was best of the best!
We also have written recommendations from 4 local veterinarians who know how well we care for our animals, and even a past Ada County Sheriff!
Please ask any questions that will make you feel more comfortable.
Ron
p.s. Note: at this time, I only offer sitting for dogs;
I don’t currently accept cats.
p.s.s. I will take care of pooches with special needs, but of course the price for these services may vary according to the amount of added attention needed.

While I was recovering from surgery, Kiska had a great time with "uncle" Ron and his dogs. She was able to play in his fenced field, explore a creek running through it and poop out inside the house on a couch.
Ron is an experienced "dog" guy having been a breeder for years - he built a great rapport with Kiska and was able to meet my (and her) needs.

Ron was great with Ivy. He gave her the extra care a puppy needs and she was so content and happy there! He sent a picture everyday and gave me an update. We were very much at ease. We will definitely use Ron again!
Our dog always has a great time!
