About Judy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Judy. I was born and raised in WI country on a farm- so I have cared for animals my entire life. I am always the 'go to' person to pet sit since I love dogs and cats!

I only take one dog at a time for overnight unless it is a pair from the same household. We believe in free range boarding and never crate unless specifically requested by our customer. This means your pup will have ultimate undivided attention, but I have some screening points to be sure we are the BEST fit for your dog.

*Your pup should be leash trained or at least not pull too hard (I fell hard with an extra large dog when he pulled and tried to chase animal on our street. I got dragged along since I didn't want to lose him). I can handle a small dog that has pulling tendencies.

*Has your dog been around cats? We have two cats that we keep in separate part of the house during dog visits, but helpful if your dog is kitty friendly to reduce anxiety on both sides.

*Does your dog have separation anxiety? Let me know circumstances when you inquire.

*We tend to be on later schedule in the summer.. Is your pup ok with a late potty break at night and then first morning potty at 9am? Due to my work schedule (I work evenings out of my home), we are not the best match if your pup is an early morning riser.

*We aren't sitting puppies at this time since our resident dog Toby is a senior.

If you haven't ruled us out yet and think we are a good match...more about us:

I walk several miles daily and can cater to your best friend! They will be taken for multiple walks daily and will have frequent potty breaks. I can do jogs for active dogs or nice leisurely strolls for those that prefer a slow place to stop and smell. I completely adapt to the needs and wishes of those I care for- just let me know your pup's preferences and habits!

I work out of my home and create my own schedule- so your pup will get tons of attention and love. My 17 year old son is loved by animals - they will get lots of attention from him as well (if he is home at the time) :) I also have a college son who will be home for the summer and also loves dogs.

I'm easy going but very detailed oriented in caring for your pets (exact requests met for feeding times, etc).

If it's an overnight in our home, you pup can sleep anywhere he or she would like. Many dogs like to sleep in my son's bed with him, others like pet beds we have, or you can bring your own. We want your baby to feel this is his home away from home. We are careful to suit the personality of our guests. Our guests are safe and supervised.

Our street is in a quiet development- so there will be dog friendly, refreshing country walks. If your dog likes to go for a ride to walk in the park- I am mere minutes from West Woods- one of our favorite places to go! I have a large backyard and deck to catch some sun and a nap if any pup is inclined. :)

Judy was wonderful. Our pup was loved and well taken care of. I would highly recommend her.
We were new to the area and of course nervous about trying a new sitter for our Goldendoodle, Maggie. Judy asked questions about Maggie's schedule and personality before she arrived, as well as sending us a reminder about items to bring for Maggie's stay. Once we arrived at Judy's home, she immediately made us feel welcome. She was warm and friendly and excited to tell us about her plans to take Maggie on morning walks/jogs and trips to the park. Maggie immediately started exploring Judy's home and Judy gave her free rein. After I left, Judy called to let me know that Maggie had easily adjusted to her new surroundings. Additionally, Judy sent me pictures each day with a note about Maggie, including how much she, her son and their dog, Toby, were enjoying her company. Her son even gave Maggie a bath after she got muddy playing at the park! It was obvious that Judy and her son love dogs and they treated Maggie like part of their family. I highly recommend Judy. You and your pooch won't be disappointed!

The best way to tell if the dog sitter was good is to watch your dog when you pick it up. If the dog doesn't want to go home then you found a great sitter.
Judy was wonderful. Our pup was loved and well cared for. I am so glad we found her. I'll be using her services quite a bit this winter.
