About Judith

10 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My name is Judith and together with my two retrievers Marley (9) and Tony (5) and our 3 cats we invite your puppy to stay with us - be it for a few hours, a day or overnight.

We've been dog sitting and boarding in our home for about 5 years and have had many happy clients. Pack walks are a great experience for dogs and a friend who's once in a while walking her dogs with us always notices how calmer her dogs are during and up to 3 days after the walks.

My life evolves all around the animals: I volunteer for Domestic Animal Services both in the shelter as well as a fostering both cats and dogs regularly, and also for the Naples Humane Society.
My dogs and I usually go walking or running 4 miles in the morning around sunrise, followed by at least two more walks during the day and evening, as well trips to dog beach or parks. During the hot summer season we keep the day time walks to a minimum and make up for it in the evenings.

My two boys are both rescues and trained by me. I take them pretty much everywhere I go, coffee shops, stores, diy stores, restaurants etc. and get a lot of compliments on how well behaved they are. We lived in Germany until March 2015 where there is no leash law and so they roamed free 95% of the time and are trained to stay with me.
I have also been helping friends with "dog problems". I have learned a lot through trainers as well as reading dog training- and psychology books and watching pretty much every single Cesar Milan show at least once (I am a HUGE fan). I am working on becoming a certified dog trainer next year.

We have three friendly cats living with us, so if your pooch would stay with us he or she shouldn't be a complete cat hater ;-) Everything else we can train :-D

Looking forward to welcoming your puppy with us

(note: The nightly rate is for a 24hr period. The additional day-rate is $30. There is a discount for regulars, multi-nights and well behaved and well trained dogs.)

While I have never refused to board a dog yet or sent someone home, I reserve the right to charge up to double fee for non-trained and/or non-socialized dogs that require special care and training in order to make their stay a pleasant one for everybody in the house.

Ms. Judith did a lovely job caring for our senior boxer while we were away. I knew right away that Gwen was in good hands when I saw how happy and healthy Judith's dogs were. They were very sweet with my dog, who happens to be pretty shy. I would, and hopefully will, use Judith again!

Judith was absolutely wonderful with our 9 year old Rotty mix. So well in fact, that when my husband went to pick him up - he said that Boo didn't seem to want to leave. Judith accepted my sitter request at the last minute due to my previous arrangements falling through and saved me a trip that I would have needed to postpone. I was so grateful to her for being reliable, and couldn't have found a better match for Boo. He was good and tired when he got home from all the walking and playing he had been doing. You can tell how much she cares for the animals. I received photo updates and she let me know how well he was doing/did. I'm so glad I stumbled upon her page and that my previous arrangements fell through or I would not have met Judith and realized that leaving town and trying to find a caring, reliable, and safe pet sitter would not have to be filled with anxiety now. I trust her with him, and know that when I leave he is not only in safe hands, but caring ones as well. She worked with my schedule and was beyond accomidating.

Our Golden Doodle had a great time during his several day stay with Judith and her dogs! I was provided regular updates and am very satisfied with the level of service and care provided.
I highly recommend Judith and will continue to use her services when needed.

Was a little nervous about dropping off our dog. Once I met Judith I could tell she was going to be great with Abbey. Well great was not the word Abbey has never been really anyplace except the vet. She went to dog beach and dog park, went swimming and even went for a bike ride with Judith and her dogs .. I was amazed. She taught me that I can trust to take my dog out. I learned a thing or two about my dog. . I will differently take Abbey back to Judith. Main thing I do believe Abbey had a fun stay.

We left our dog Banksy with Judith for nearly 3 days while we were vacationing over the weekend. This is the first time he stayed over at someones house who was not family and we are extremely happy with the entire experience. Judith stayed in touch with us during the weekend, and sent us pictures of Banksy out on walks. I had no worries the entire time. The fact that she had dogs was a plus what with Banksy being such a social dog. He was very happy when we left him with her and he was very happy when we picked him up. Pick Judith next time you need a dog sitter! Your dogs are gonna love it! (And you)

Judith is terrific! The dogs were happy and very tired when they got home. Would recommend her highly.
Steele's stay with Judith was great! He was happy and exhausted when I picked him up! Slept for two days! Thank you Judith! It's nice to know I can leave Steele with you with no worries!
Judith was awesome. Charlie loved going to her. I loved getting pictures and videos. Charlie is going back to her. She is awesome!!!
Coco seemed to have a good time with Judith and her friends.
Judith was absolutely wonderful. She loved our 2 pups and they loved Judith. She took them hiking and swimming and they are looking forward to visiting Judith again. We cannot thank Judith enough for providing us with such a great pet sitting. We could thoroughly enjoy the community theater matinee without any worries while visiting Naples. In addition, Judith is a very sweet person you will enjoy knowing as much as your pups do.

Lexi already wants to go back! She had a wonderful time and when we picked her up we could tell she had made herself right at home with Judith and her pups. Getting the pictures, video and updates put our minds at ease and we didn't worry at all. We will absolutely use Judith yearly when we visit the area. She is a real gem with pets!
Thank you again.

Judith is a great lady who's love for dogs is obvious. Boots had plenty of love from her and her 2 dogs. He got plenty of exercise and outings. It gives me peace of mind to know that I found a loving, happy place to bring Boots. Maureen
