About Bess

14 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Thank you for considering our home for your pet's vacation! We have a half acre fenced in yard with 24 hour access through an in-wall doggy door.Your pups can sun themselves on our deck or dig on the wooded areas. Our in house pets are friendly and calming to other dogs. We had four dogs at one point and our seniors and pups got along great! Our two children have dog manners and offer lots of love, especially if your pups are missing their kiddos! We are a homeschool family, so home most of the time, with fun dog-friendly field trips too! My past experience includes volunteering with a local humane society and working at a pet store where I gained experience with just about every pet you could imagine. I currently own and operate a natural healthcare clinic.

Absolutely awesome experience for my dog Bella! Bess sent frequent pictures, and I wasn't sure she would want to come home. She is a senior Lab, and worried about her. I shouldn't have- she was lovingly taken care of. Will definitely call her again in future.
Wonderful experience for dog and owners. We brought our 9 month old Samoyed to Bess for 10 days. Her family was wonderful and caring. She provided updates and pictures and exceeded our expectations for the care of our dog, not just feeding and providing a place to stay, but really caring for him and treating him like their new puppy. When we picked him up he was glad to see us, but we could tell he also missed Bess her family and his new dog friends.

I would never hesitate to recommend her and hope she is available to watch our dog in the future.
-Thank you Bess and family-
We brought our dog, Enzo, to Bess for a few days. He had never been left with anybody outside of our family, and we were a little anxious. However, Bess and her family did an awesome job taking care of him! They all gave him a little extra TLC, and Bess's daughter even let him share her bed with her. Enzo loved playing with their younger dog, Murphy, and he also got along great with their little Pixie dog as well as their cat. They have a huge fenced-in back yard for the dogs to run in, and Bess also took Enzo for walks! She sent me many pictures, and even a couple of videos, to show us how Enzo was doing. Her young son loved editing some of the pictures with cute little cartoon objects and thought bubbles, and it was evident that Enzo was being loved and included in the family. We are hoping to take Enzo to Bess the next time we go on vacation!
