About Colleen

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a full time pet sitter who provides a wonderful vacation spot for your four legged family members in the comfort of my home. I will board all dog sizes and breeds. I do however, charge according to your dogs weight.(0 to 20 lbs $30). (21 to 45 lbs $40) and (over 45 lbs is $50) all rates are per 24 hrs and discounts apply for mulitfamily.

After having pets my entire life, I understand how hard it is to leave them behind when we must travel. I never took a vacation without my dogs because I never trusted that anyone would take care of them the way I did. That is how my business was born. I am that person you can trust to take care of and love your four legged family member as you would when your away.

I have many years of experience with dogs, having had 8 of my own. My experience also comes from being a volunteer at Domestic Animal Services and having run a Greyhound Rescue and Adoption Center where we had the great pleasure of rescuing and housing up to 42 of these wonderful dogs, and placing them into forever homes.

My home is very clean and pest free. No fleas or ticks. There is a rather large fenced in area that they are free to go outside and play anytime, with my supervision of course. There are many toys to play with, a kiddy pool and hose time if they like water. I throw little outside parties for them with snacks and ice water. I will take them to the park for walks when possible. If your four legged family member sleeps in bed with you, then they can sleep with me. I want them to feel like they are home, only better.

Since I am very careful about what dogs I accept into my home. I will only accept dogs that are social and well adjusted. They must be spayed or neutered, house broken,(except puppies) current on all vaccines and flea and tick prevention.

I look forward to being your four legged family members new vacation destination. Please request a Meet and Greet with me.

If we could give Colleen 10 stars we would!

Our 3 dogs are high maintenance. We were not very excited to leave our needy, high maintenance kids that we LOVE so much with anyone.

They are all three flat faced dogs WITH ISSUES. We are with them 24/7. Only leaving them for short bursts like 4 hours max, and needed a miracle worker to deal with them while we were away.

We got our miracle with Colleen. We went to visit Colleen before we decided to leave them at her house for three days. She "seemed" like she would do a good job.

Well we were off! SHE DID AN AMAZING JOB!!!! And I am not exaggerating!

As one Frenchie raced out to the back yard by ramming Colleens screen and leaving a hole in her screen, silhouetting his frenchie body! She just went with it!

She also sent us a ton of pictures, and constantly kept us up on what was going on! Handling three needy rescue bulldogs (two frenchies, one old GRUMPY English bulldog) is a challenge. And Colleen did it.

We are so grateful for her attention to medications and issues.They were so tired when we got them home, it has allowed us adjust to getting back from our trip with ease!

OK so the question is "will you use Colleen again?" The answer is easy... HECK YES! If she will have our three tyrants we will for sure be back! She made our trip so much nicer.

Thank you Colleen! To say we appreciate you watching our kids is an understatement!

Colleen was wonderful! She cared for my 9 month-old goldendoodle as if he were her own. She kept me informed of his well-being with texts and pictures throughout his stay. I felt relieved knowing that my fluffy baby was in a clean, caring environment. She even let him sleep on her bedroom floor, just like he does at home. I will definitely use Colleen's services again, and highly recommend her. Thank you, Colleen!

Personable & Professional! Colleen's in-home doggy daycare is clean and safe for my puppy. He loves going to Colleen's to play. He's always tired and happy afterwards.
First time my brother n sister std poodles ever stayed with a pet home boarder. Colleen and her home is definitely a wonderful, loving pet
Environment. "Pups" loved substitute mom, Colleen
I recommend her without reservation. She does have an enclosed backyard and does go out with dogs to play for exercise. She Seemed quite comfortable boarding several other pets without any problems. Marla G. Naples

Colleen was fantastic and I highly recommend her! My dog loved Colleen and ran right up to her as soon as we arrived. I was able to enjoy my vacation knowing my pooch was happy and well cared for. I will definitely have my dog vacay with Colleen in the future!!

Colleen was the perfect find for our two dogs. She was exactly what we were looking for. We and our two pets were comfortable and confident in Colleen, her home, her caring nature, and her home-baked liver biscuits.

Looking forward to using her again in the short term.
