About our family:
We are a loving family consisting of my husband, (Stephen) and I (Elise), 4 children, (Tayler, 13 Gavin, 11 and Lily, 3 and Naomi, 1). We rescued our very sweet Golden Retriever/Lab mix, Jagger, about 1.5 yrs ago. He loves his job of making new friends and he's good at it, he hasn't met a guest he hasn't liked yet! We love to travel and understand how stressful traveling can be when you have 4-legged furry kiddo/s, we strive to make the process as stress free as possible, and you can rest assured, knowing we understand how important it is to leave your beloved dog in good hands while you are traveling - we promise to provide a safe environment for your dog, filled with love, care, music, fetch and fun!
I (Elise) am a stay at home mom, allowing your dog/s to be in constant care, with access to a large fenced backyard to run around and play. I am active, I love to go on daily runs or walks, depending on what works best for your dog and trips to the dog park nearby. I foster dogs from time to time, it's incredibly rewarding to know that I helped save a dogs life and place him/her in a loving forever home. We only use toxin free products in our home, ensuring your dog would never get into any harmful chemicals.
They love having doggies around, they get a kick out of watching our dog, Jagger play with other dogs and love to join in on the action, playing fetch, cuddling, going on walks, etc. Your dog/s will always have someone around to love on them and give them constant affection and attention.
Why I love dog sitting:
Stephen and I both always had family dogs growing up. As a teen I had a small dog sitting business where I would walk neighbors dogs, feed them, stay over night, etc. I have recently been fostering puppies/dogs and have really enjoyed the experience, getting to love on a dog that maybe didn't have it so good before and also knowing we are playing a small part in saving dogs lives - the whole process is extremely rewarding. Dogs have always been a huge part of our lives, and I am so happy I get to stay at home with my kids and love on doggies!!
Meet my pets:
We rescued our dog Jagger about 1.5 years ago, he is a mutt, we aren't quite sure what he is, we think Golden Retriever and lab..maybe some hound, we are so in love with him. He is wonderful with other dogs, loves to play, but also enjoys lounging around relaxing. He is a sweet heart and sure loves the company when we have another dog stay with us! He loves to play fetch and prefers that above everything else.
We strive to make sure our home is as pet friendly as possible. Although we have small children, we have a playroom where all of their toys are kept and dogs are not allowed. When watching small puppies, we make sure their are not any small toys that they can get into. Your dog will have access to our main floor where our family spends most of our time. We close our basement and upstairs off, but dogs are welcome downstairs with us if we venture their.
About my yard
Our backyard has a large patio as well as a large grassy area, it is completely fenced in with a 6 foot privacy fence. We have many trees offering an abundance of shade. Your dog will love running around our backyard and will enjoy a front row show to squirrel watching!
