About Beth

8 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
As of October 2016 I will only be taking 2 dogs at a time due to some schedule changes. If my calendar shows booked and you are a prior guest please feel free to text me if you have an emergency or last minute request and I can usually open up a spot. I try my best however, it is getting increasingly more difficult for me to take on new guests and meet and greets at this time....

Dogs provide me with so much love, joy and not to mention a great source of entertainment that I have made it into my full time job! I love all animals! I have a fenced back yard, I am located in a lighter traffic area with a lot of walking trails and a lake, There are no kids in the household just in case you have a dog that is anxious around children. My own dog is an inside dog, sleeps on our bed and is fully crate trained. I do not leave dogs in my yard unattended. In the instance I do need to leave the house I do crate or separate the dogs as well. I do work from home and am extremely fortunate that I can plan my schedule around sitting. This allows me to accommodate special schedule requests. Pottying, medicating or eating early a.m. or late p.m. Early or late dropoffs or pickups are ok, just let me know in advance.

Before requesting a Meet and Greet or a Reservation please take note of the following:

*Due to the volume of dogs that I do care for I do require dogs to have updated vaccinations. Rabies, DHLP, and Bordatella. Mine is up to date on his vaccinations and we also get him Flea & Tick as an added precaution. I do prefer to take dogs that are also fixed as I may have more than one dog at a time.

*My dog is large, I also take any size dogs. I have had as small as a Chihuahua and as big as a St. Bernard. They are all my babies! especially when they are in my care! I usually have at least 1 dog on a daily basis whether they be my daycare buddy or my pawrents on vacation buddy. If there is a chance that your dog is fearful or does not like other dogs. My home may not be a great environment. Meet and Greets are wonderful but by the time you make a reservation I may have 1 or 2 other dogs that your dog would not get to meet.

*I try my best to schedule Meet and Greets when I have as few dogs as possible or no dogs. Again, since I do accommodate older dogs and larger dogs... children can sometimes add more stress to a Meet and Greet and for the safety and respect of your dogs, my dog and ones that I may already have, please try to schedule for a time when you can leave your small children at home. I want the dogs to be able to interact with as little commotion as possible and some animals become more stressed when children are running around.

Beth is AWESOME with our pup!! It is clear that her and her family LOVE pets, and the communication Beth provides is fantastic! We trust her with one of our most important family members and will continue to do so!!!
We are so lucky to have mark and Beth as Fishers extended family!!!! He loves them right back! Kathy S.
Another great stay at Beth and Mark's! Tino just has a great time there as evidenced by all the great photos Beth sent us - Tino looked like he was laughing really hard in one, and in the other he is buddying up to Mark. Thanks again.
Beth was great! Finn had a great stay for her first time away from home!
This is the first time we used a pet sitter and was happy with Beth's service. It was nice to come home to see our dogs happy & healthy. We would use Beth in the future.
Beth is amazing! She and her husband Mark were so welcoming to our dachshund, Geneva. I could tell Geneva was comfortable with them and loving all the attention. I loved getting all the updates and pictures too! I will definitely think of her again next time we go away.

Beth was truly an amazing host. I felt instantly comfortable meeting her and leaving Murphy with her and her husband. They truly enjoy taking care of pups. The updates were terrific and Murphy always had a smile on his face in picture updates.
I am so glad to have found Beth!!

We had a really good experience with Beth. Our dog is an "only dog" and she is more comfortable with people than other dogs. Beth made accommodations for her, and Sugar was relaxed and happy when I picked her up. Sugar had bonded with Beth, and I could tell that Beth was truly fond of Sugar as well. She sent lots of pictures of Sugar while we were away, and I appreciated the fact that her home was very clean and tidy. Will definitely use her again!

Beth was a great dog sitter! She was a good communicator and sent lots of pictures of our dog. We will definitely be using Beth again when we go out of town.
As always, Beth took wonderful care of my fur kid =)
Beth is an excellent dog sitter. She loves dogs, keeps a very clean home and is very responsive to requests posed to her. I think she is awesome!
Placing our little pup with Beth was a perfect choice. Smokey was cared for and treated so well. Beth sent pictures and texted us with information while we were away on vacation. I felt he was in a safe environment and he was given lots of attention. I would highly recommend Beth and will definitely use her service again.

Our dogs had a great time at Beth's. Will definitely come back!
Marshmallow has stayed with Beth twice and always comes home happy. It's never easy leaving your pet with someone but we trust Beth and know she will be in good hands.
Beth keeps us updated with texts and pictures and really cares for Marshmallow.
We will definitely be using her again for future trips.

Once again Beth was fabulous! We got lots of pics and updates. If our family isn't available to watch Roxy, we always think of Beth next. She takes care of Roxy just like she's at home... so we never have to worry. Don't know what we'd do without her!!

The dogs were great. Beth was so nice to provide regular updates with photos letting us know how they were doing. We could tell they were comfortable and being well cared for. Thank you, Beth!
We love Beth and Mark! They're the best, and our dog loves them too. Sometimes I think he spends more time at their house than mine, but he's just fine with that :)
Beth was awesome from the get go. She first had a meet and greet out at a dog park by our house...so we took all 4 of our dogs there to meet her. She was interested in hearing about our dog personalities and learning about them before she cared for them, which I thought was great. Then, after the initial introduction we is discussed the details of our trip. She was fine feeding our dogs their raw food diet and even sent texts/photos while we were gone (clearly showing them comfortable with her). It made my trip away easier to enjoy knowing that they were safe and happy. When we picked them up they were all happy and not stressed at all and all 4 slept pretty much the whole rest of the day. We highly recommend Beth. She's amazing and we feel lucky to have found her to watch our babies.

Once again Roxy had a wonderful time at Beth's house. We received daily updates and pictures, she is the best!
Beth was a wonderful host for Roxy last week. This was our first time we left her for over a week and the first time she stayed with Beth. We were in Mexico and Beth sent us daily updates letting us know about Roxy's vacay! She also sent us photos showing us how Roxy was relaxing and feeling right at home. We didn't have to worry about Roxy at all, which made our trip more relaxing to!

Beth and her husband were absolutely wonderful with our Pointer puppy. It was the first long weekend we've left her, so I was a little nervous. We did a meet-and-greet with their dog which put my mind at ease. Then Beth also sent me four pictures while we were away- the pictures were the best and it looked like our dog had a blast. Highly recommend :D

Beth was GREAT with our new puppy! The pictures of her were really nice to see while away, relaxed and happy. Beth even got her to sleep in the crate at night, which we have continued, making the nights at home much more manageable. Thank you, Beth!
Beth was great! Kahlo can be very shy, but she made sure he was comfortable and happy, and we were texted pictures to prove it! Nothing like the peace of mind you get from knowing that even though your dog is not with you, he is being cared for in a loving safe environment and that he will be a happy pup when you return.

I don't really want to give a good review for fear that Beth will be too busy to take care of my dog! Honestly though; Beth and mark are so amazing that my dog bolts to the door and doesn't want to leave when I pick him up!They take better care of my dog than I do! Thanks again for a great experience, save us a spot, PLEEEAASE!

Beth was very flexible with scheduling and seemed very attentive to Bailey's well-being and happiness and he seemed to have a great time!
Beth was terrific! So conscientious, and really gave Gracie a good home during her stay. She was also easy to work with in terms of pick up and drop off. I would recommend Beth to anyone.
We were so grateful that a friend recommended Beth to us! Our dogs were treated like family and Beth even sent us pictures during their visit. We know that they received lots of love and attention during their stay. Beth is top notch in our book!!!

Beth and her husband did a great job once again with Jake. He jumps out of the car and runs to the door when we get there now, which is a good sign. Last time we dropped him off, he ran inside the house when the door opened and was off playing with his new dog buddies right away.

My wife just left a few minutes ago to drop Jake off with Beth again, and I know he will have a great weekend.

Beth and her husband did a great job taking care of our dog, Jake. She sent me some pictures each day, which is a great way to be sure he was having fun. They played ball, went for walks, and Jake came home happy and tired - perfect.

Thank you, and see you again soon.

Our little Taisie loves staying with Beth! Beth is very flexible & even watched Taisie with less than 24 hours notice! Highly recommended!
Jolie had a great time with Beth and Bailey. Beth sent me pics of the two playing together and Jolie definitely came home happy and worn out =)
Usually when I pick my dog up from the kennel, he is crazy. He won't sit still in the car and his voice is hoarse from barking. When I picked him up from Beth's house, he was completely calm. It was like I never left him. Beth did a great job of taking care of him!

Beth was great with my two small dogs and made them right at home. She was flexible with our timing and so accommodating when we got home later than expected. She sent us pictures of the pups so we could see that they were happy and cozy and it made it much easier to be without them. Would definitely use her again!
