About Gary and Monica

40 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We treat your dogs like they are our dogs! We have a great backyard with plenty of room to roam and play. I come home twice a day to check on our dogs and make sure they have water and lovies. A meet and greet is required to make sure everyone gets along and you are happy with the accommodations. See why our home has happy repeat clients! Please note that we can only take a few new clients as we are very busy with the clients we have now! (As of January 1, 2017 we will be raising our rates to $38.)

Gary and Monica are so great. My dog loves spending time with them and their dogs. They are caring and thoughtful pet owners who treat my dog like a member of their family. I appreciate them both so much!
We rarely leave our dog Ben with anyone, preferring to take him on family trips. But this time it wasn't practical to bring Ben, so we are glad we found Gary and Monica. We first had a meet and greet, and then a one night "practice run" for Ben to get familiar with them and their dogs. Communication was excellent, and during his stay we received regular updates and photos, and it was clear that Ben was being treated like family and had made good friends with Buffy and Gus (their dogs).

Next time we need someone to watch Ben for us, we won't hesitate to contact Gary and Monica.
My dog Honey, loves going to Gary and Monica's. She plays with Gus and Buffy. I have boarded her at other places and she wasn't a happy camper.
I know she is not stuck in a cage all day.

I will continue to bring Honey to Gary & Monica as long as they will have her there.

I give Gary & Monica's a five star rating.

Our Oliver loves going to Gary and Monica. He really feels home away from home at their house. Gets long with their dogs very well and always enjoys playing with his buddies :)
Our Oliver loves going to Monica and Gary. They truly love him and take very good care of him. Thank you very much!
Once again Stella enjoyed her home away from home with Monica and Gary. It's so great to not worry about being away from her at all. Thanks!
No one could care more about your dog and you. They are good with furry friends and can handle all the craziness that we as pet parents throw at them.
Whenever we make vacation plans, after I book the plane and hotel or camping spot I book Stella's time with Gary and Monica. I love knowing she is going somewhere she enjoys with people who know her and care for her. They are just great!
We are so happy that Gary's and Monica's house is always welcoming Oliver for a home away from home stay. Oliver has wonderful playtime with their dogs. Thank you very much! Till the next time :)
Monica and Gary are fabulous! They create a family environment for their guests, so your animal friend fits right in and has so much fun with their two wonderful dogs. It's so wonderful to go away and know that your best friend is being cared for by such loving people.
Monica and Gary give genuine attention to the dogs under their care. They give attention and the dogs have a nice yard in which to play. Their own dogs are mellow and my dog comes home tired and happy. I couldn't ask for more.
Gary and Monica were wonderful! Pip had a great time, and they assured this nervous owner that he would be cared for like one of the family. They definitely followed through on that promise.
We are so grateful to Gary and Monica for taking care of our 1 year old puppy Oliver.
They are huge dog lovers and their house and backyard are perfect. Oliver made good friends with their two dogs right away and was very happy there. Monica even sent us pictures of our happy "camper" :)
Jax's home away from home!
Our dog Cooper had a fabulous time here. Gary and Monica took great care of him, and we were so pleased to have found them. We loved getting the pictures and updates during our time away. I would both recommend them as well as ask them to care for Cooper again.
Stella had another wonderful stay with Monica, Gary , Buffy and Gus. She is always so happy to see them!
Stella had another great stay with Monica and Gary! We're so glad we found them!
Monica and Gary really put their guests first. They require meet and greets to be sure your dog fits in with the "family". Its a great idea and avoids problems down the line. My dog Buck had the best time and he feels he had a break too!
Another wonderful stay! Jax didn't want to leave, as usual!!
Jax loves this home, so so do I. The very best!
Stella had a great time staying with Monica, Gary Gus and Buffy. She especially bonded with Buffy, their young terrier. They have a great big fenced back yard that is perfect for active dogs. Monica and Gary sent us photos and emails to let us know how she was doing. We are very happy to have found them.
I couldn't be happier! They are thorough, caring dog-owners themselves, and I felt 100 percent comfortable leaving my Jax with them. He was so happy after his stay!
Bella had a wonderful time with Monica. She was able to play and play to her harts content with Gus. So much so that she came home pooped.
Monica and Gary were basically everything you could ask for in a dog sitter. They are both definitely dog people, and between the two, have a significant amount of experience with all types of dogs. They themselves own two dogs that, from my experience, get along with every other dog and make the perfect play companions throughout the day.

In short; I will definitely be using them again in the future and bringing Dante over for future play dates!
Monica is awesome. She's flexible and her and her husband give doggy visitors great care. My dog Wallace had a blast playing with her dog Gus and came home exhausted. Love that.
Monica and Gary took great care of my dog, Ryko, while I was on vacation. They are clearly dog lovers and were very good about sending me pictures and updates while I was on the road. They're also accommodating with my travel schedule, and very pleasant people. I recommend them highly!
