About Timothy

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are home full time with your pets

My wife and I want to make your pet's
Vacation as fun and memorable as your own. We offer a stress free, safe environment, with a rambling home and two large fully fenced play yards.

I currently offer doggy daycare (in addition to overnight boarding)! I’d be happy to keep your pup entertained while you’re away for the day.

Your dog will spend their time here running, wrestling, snuggling ,playing, and eating delicious healthy treats like pure, canned pumpkin, and peanuts, and sniffing new places on our daily walks.

We are both self employed artists, and we work from home, so there is never a time that your pet will be left alone for more than a hour or two.

Our three sons have been raised around dogs, and they have a good understanding of how to treat animals with kindness and respect.

Separation issues and animal anxiety are approached with kindness, patience, and gentle understanding.

Please note that in order to provide high quality care for your pet, we do charge a moderately higher rate for puppies, special needs dogs, and giant or extra large dogs. These animals require a lot more time, attention, cleanup, and space. If your dog marks, please provide a wrap of fiapers for the times they are inside the home.

Unfortunately we are not able to provide care for animals who show agression towards other anima,s or people. Safety is our primary concern, both for our guest dogs and our family.

We look forward to meeting you and your pet soon!

This was my first time using Dogvacay and I have to say that Tollhouse was happy. Timothy sent updates and pics and made me feel better about the whole process. We will be back!
Tollhouse was so happy to return that he ran to the door!
My dog, Jeff, did very well with Timothy, his family, and the household pets. Jeff was treated as one of the family and he did great. Timothy even sent a picture of Jeff hanging out with the family. I would definitely use Timothy again. Thank you so much for taking such good care of my four-legger!

Our dog was taken care of well.
Recommend.
Took leo in last minute and he had lots of fun there!
Tim and rachel and their entire family were so sweet when Butters arrived. Their litle dog immediately took my little dog under her wing. Their home is friendly and warm and i can tell buters had a great little vacation while i took my vacation. I highly recommend Tim and his family as pet sitters.
They even sent me photos of butters playing while i was away.

Molly loves it here!
My dog was well-taken care of for the days she was there. She got to play with other dogs all day and she likes that. We used Timothy as daycare for several days as we visited sites around Tucson and it was a life saver. We couldn't leave her alone all day, and many places would not have welcomed a dog. Thank you Tim and Rachel.

Olle had a blast. Exhausted when he got home!
Great service! Much more convenient than using a kennel. My dog feels right at home! Love the interaction with other dogs.
Tim and Rachel are lovely. They sent regular photos and updates and are warm and friendly. Max will be staying with them again on our next trip!
Timothy did a wonderful job in taking care of our dog. We were apprehensive in leaving her with a new sitter because she often is standoffish around new people. Also she is a "door-dasher." But all went well and she came home happy and healthy. Timothy sent several updates with photos during her stay which we really appreciated.

This is our second time leaving Mo with Timothy S. We were very happy with his service.
Our Lucy always loves staying here, where she's very well taken care of. When we bring her to Tim and his family. she literally runs from the car to the front door. We recommend GuineaPickle highly.
Timothy was great. He and his family took Stella relatively last minute for me, just for one night. They sent photos and emailed me updates. She had a ball!
Timothy and his family are excellent hosts. Not only do they reassure me that my pup is having a great time, but they are honest with me if my dog is having issues or causing trouble, and then they work with me to find the best solution for a happy and safe pet. I really appreciate them and they are always my first choice for pet care in Tucson!

I would highly recommend using Guineapickle dog hosting with Tim and his family. They took great care of our dog MO for a whole week. They sent us and update with photos almost everyday to let us know how MO was doing. This was much appreciated.

I can tell that MO had a great time! He is now catching up on his sleep. I think he misses his new friends.

We would not hesitate to leave MO with Tim for our next trip.

Would highly recommend!

Great experience with Tim and his family! Even though our three dogs acted out horribly their first night, Tim was understanding. Dogs all came home happy and we enjoyed the picture updates throughout the weekend. We will definitely be repeat guests!

Daniel:Tim and Rachel were awesome host for sasha she was happy content and slept like a puppy the night she came home. Thanks again Tim and Rachel.
Second time using this pet sitting service, they are awesome! Highly recommend!
Our dog came back happy and healthy and very tired from playing.
As always, Tim and Rachel and their family take extraordinary care of our dog. She has such fun there and we know she's in good, safe, loving hands.
Our dog is super anxious but Timothy and his beautiful family knew what to do with an anxious dog. They sent pictures and I could see my Gucci was more and serene thanks to their gentleness and efforts. We will come back for sure ! Thanks again !
Tim, Rachel, and their family are terrific.

Tim and Rachel are true dog-lovers, quite knowledgeable and well tuned in to animal psychology, nutrition, health--the works. They also treated us to daily photos and updates while we were gone--very nice.

As a bonus, theirs is a very busy household that includes two dogs, some cats, and three (very well behaved) little kids, so it was a great socializing opportunity for our dog. She loved it so much that the second time we brought her over, Lucy was so excited she strained at the leash to get to their front door.

We're very happy to have met these wonderful folks.

Tim & Rachel were great & took amazing care of my baby boy, Copper. They sent updates throughout the weekend & took extra steps to make Copper feel comfortable during his stay. They are able to provide a lot of attention & love & easy access to a great backyard. Their pets & family are fantastic at making Copper feel a part of the family. Copper already misses his best friend, Daisy, so we'll definitely be using Tim & Rachel again!

I feel so comfortable taking our pups here! The family is very flexible, and they take great care of the dogs. There is plenty of space for everyone to play, too!
Very nice family who showed love and patience with our sweet senior dog.
I am SO glad I chose this family to watch my dog! She is super shy and they were patient, gentle and wound up making the experience wonderful and confidence-building for her. I received updates with photos during her stay that really put me at ease and helped make my vacation much more relaxing. I am pretty sure she is mad at me for making her leave! I can't recommend these wonderful people highly enough to care for your special little guy/gal while you are out of town.

Hugh had a good time. Very easy to set up and flexible. I'll definitely be using them again!
I worried so much about leaving Brady... silly! He's never been so calm when I've picked him up before. He ate, slept, and basically was just incorporated into the family! I will enjoy my week-long trip so much more now that I know Brady is happy at Tim's house. Thank you soooooo much.

I felt very comfortable while away. Daisy isn't the easiest, but she was welcomed as part of the family.
Although my dog is 10 years old, this was his first experience being cared for out-of-home, by someone other than a family member. My anxiety level was "off the chart" before the Meet and Greet in the home of Tim and Rachel and their three young boys. Their home and family were extremely dog friendly and I was please to observe my dog becoming a member of the pack in a matter of minutes. During his stay, my dog initially had separation issues which Tim and Rachel addressed by giving him extra attention and by allowing him to spend the night in their room. During his four day stay, I received reassuring emails reports and photos of his activities. When I picked him up, he was happy to see me but also seemed a little sad to be leaving his new doggy friends, Tim and Rachel, and their three young sons.

Timothy and his family are fantastic! My dogs were relaxed the second they entered their home. They had such a great time that they did not want to leave. I have never seen my dogs so calm after I have left them in someone's care.
