About Eileen

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Note: If you are a new client please schedule a "Meet-n-Greet" from the "Reservations" page before requesting a reservation.

We primarily provide services for dogs but will do home visits/stays for cats and other types of pets (We had cats for 8 years, mice for 2 years). Glad to discuss details.

We are both retired and spend lots of time with our two Golden Retrievers along with their guests that stay with us for overnight and longer term boarding. Our home offers a wonderful alternative to kennels. We love to travel and understand that when you are away you want only the best for one of the most important members of your family.

We provide a safe, friendly, fun, and loving environment while you are away. The dogs are allowed on our furniture and are made to feel right at home. Let us know your routine and we will follow it as close as possible.

Please note:
- We only sit for one family at a time so that you are assured that your pup/s will get our full attention.
-- We do not take reservations until we have first had a Meet-n-Greet.
- We prefer pups that can be crated (or secured in a separate room) in the event that we both need to be away from the house for a short time during their stay.
- Due to negative experiences (marking in the house) with non-neutered males, we respectfully decline to sit for them.

Eileen and Mike are superb dog sitters! They took the time to learn more about Bear and then, while I was away, gave him a vacation I know he enjoyed. :) They even sent me pics to let me know how he was doing - I could tell my his smiles that he was having a blast. I will definitely be booking them again for my next trip since I know Bear is in great hands there!

Eileen and Mike are dog lovers. They enjoy what they are doing and pay attention to the needs of my dog and me. My hound is not a cuddling bug at home but I saw him keep walking over to give Mike hugs and kisses. I think he had a great visiting.
We have never left our 13 year old poodle with anyone but family. We were very concerned about having to leave him with strangers but after our meet and greet with Eileen & Mike we were sure that he would be well taken care of. Eileen sent pictures of Pierre most every day and messages that put us at ease. He looked very happy. We would definitely not hesitate to leave Pierre with Eileen & Mike again.

Eileen cared for our Yorkie puppies, in with love and care. We were very happy with her services and will definitely call her again!
Pax was ever so happy and extremely well taken care of. She had fun playing and had a great dog vacay. Thanks Eileen and Mail.
Eileen is the best. Wouldn't leave Sophie with anybody else! I just can't say enough about the love and care that Sophie gets every time.
Eileen was fantastic!! My dogs are a handful and she handled them very well. Eileen comes off as a really good person who really cares. Do your self a favor and use her for your babies because they will be in great hands!! Thanks Eileen!!
Bogey had a great time with Eileen and Mike. He made some "inter-personal communication" positive strides thanks to Mike too! We'll definitely stay again.
Trust worthy and reliable and Loves our dog..
Charlie loves Eileen and Mike.
Excellent as always... So Thankful to have found Charlie a "Home away from home"!!!
Eileen and Mike were amazing! Ranger fit right in with Holly and Maya which is a feat because he is so much smaller than they are. It's clear that they care for the pets staying with them as much as they do their own furry friends!
Again, a wonderful stay for Charlie. Their flexibility for us was amazing. .
Awesome, once again.
Eileen and Mike and the two girls are the best! I believe that one of these trips, Sophie will not want to come home with me when I get back! She gets so spoiled and loved. So amazing that I can leave her with them.
Excellent..Charlie had so much fun.. Would absolutely recommend.. Kept us informed with text and pictures.. will definitely use again. THANK YOU!!
We left our dog (Charlie) for the first time with Eileen and Mike. We were SOO nervous.. Charlie had the time of his life, Eileen kept us informed with text and pictures. He will be returning. So THANKFUL!!!!
My experience was very good. Eileen is a natural with dogs. Both her husband and her are very loving with animals. I feel very reassured that my girls are being well taken care of and highly recommend her to others.
Eileen and Mike were AWSOME! Maisey had such a great time with them and their two dogs, Maya and Holly! They gave my dog the same love and care that they give their own. Maisey has actually been sulking today. I think she is missing all of the special attention that she has been getting over the past week. I wish I could give them 10 stars. They are that good! I highly recommend Eileen and Mike!

What a fabulous time Demetri had with his retriever girlfriends and their parents, Eileen and Mike, during his recent stay. He enjoyed every minute, we're sure, and is eager to come back for more fun.
Sophie and her mom can't say enough good things about Eileen mad Mike. They are the bestest of the best! I wouldn't leave Sophie anywhere else! I leave knowing that Sophie is getting the best care ever!
Once again, we are so thankful to have Eileen--and her husband Mike--pet sit for our babies! Junior is a dear and so is Jody, but she can be a handful and Eileen makes them both feel completely at home. The "host" dogs Maya and Holly are sweet and everybody gets along "swimmingly." It is such a relief to know that when we have to leave our puggles they are in a kind and caring environment. We look forward to the photos and texts Eileen sends so that we can see for ourselves that all is well. THANK YOU Eileen and Mike! We're so grateful to have you nearby and willing to welcome Junior and Jody into your beautiful home.

I wanted to post this earlier but with the Holidays I am running behind. I can't say enough good things about Eileen and Mike. They went above and beyond for Gilbert to adjust to being away from his mom & dad for the first time. At the same time they were going through a very difficult time with a family members health. I would definitely recommend Eileen & Mike as they are true dog lovers and made Gilbert welcome as well as his humans! Great hosts!

Mike and Eileen are true dog lovers! They treated our little dog like one of the family. She had a wonderful time with their two golden retrievers. When we picked her up, she had a hard time deciding who she wanted to sit with-us or Mike and Eileen. I would definitely take her back again and she would be very excited to visit with them.

Eileen and Mike are fantastic host. Not only are they great host they have two wonderful dogs Holly and Myia.
Diamond was treated as one of the pack. I had fears that Diamond would have anxiety. He was very happy when I arrived but was in no hurry to leave.
Thank you Eileen and Mike. I will be a return customer.

Camo thoroughly enjoyed staying with Eileen and Mike and they 2 dogs. We have never had to board her for a week and was worried until I met Eileen and Mike. You can tell they love dogs and Cmo was so at home with them that she fell asleep during our meet and greet!

Camo will be going back!

The BEST! Eileen, Mike and the two girls are awesome. So happy that Sophie was able to stay with them while I was away. What a dog friendly and loving home.
Demetri loves to spend time with his Retriever Girls , Maya and Holly. What a wonderful time he has with them and their caring , loving humans - Eileen & Mike. We couldn't ask for more devoted attention than he receives at their home.
Our deepest thanks for the loving-care you provided for Isaiah. You welcomed him into your family and I'm confident your kindness helped to ease any discomfort he felt about being away from home. We cannot thank you enough for your patience and everything you did to make Isaiah comfortable. This was our first time leaving him with anyone and we were able to enjoy our vacation because of your sincere desire to provide the best of care for him. We are grateful for your compassionate service!

Another wonderful time for Demetri with his 'retriever girls' and their "people", Eileen and Mike. The care and concern he receives in their home is unmatched. He is always sad to leave because he's made to feel so special.
Eileen and Mike were perfect with Austin, the meet and greet went great and Holly and Maya were also so welcomeing. We had to pick up Austin a day early and that went smoothly also. We got text to up date us on Austin threw out his stay..I know that Austin was well taken care of and Loved while in the care of these two great people. When back in Ocala will definitely have Austin go back to visit his goodfriends there..

What a wonderful experience! From the "meet and greet" to the dog "vacy" Eileen and Mike could not have been more perfect to take care of Junior and Jody. These folks know all about dogs and they clearly take great care of them, including their own beautiful Holly and Maya--who Junior and Jody thought were terrific. I am SO glad we found this site and Eileen and Mike B. I will recommend them to anyone. Junior and Jody were happy to see us but obviously had a great time!

I can't speak highly enough of the wonderful care Eileen and Mike took of our 2 Gordon Setters! My husband and I were in a panic when, for the first time ever, none of our close 'dog friends' were able to take care of Riley and Dice. We are fanatic about our 'only children' and were worried we may have to CXL our trip....until we met Eileen and Mike. Within minutes of our first 'meet and greet' I knew we were in the right place - esp. when they started telling us of their many years of experience with their dogs health and behavior issues, and how fanatic they, too, are about providing excellent care and quality of life. Anther thing - while we were talking, Riley and Dice were getting along wonderfully with Maya and Holly, -we even had to give them a few extra nudges when it was time to go home - they wanted to stay longer! The same thing happened when we returned from our trip - I have no doubt they would have loved to stay longer :-) Our only BIG complaint and HUGE disappointment was when Eileen and Mike told us they were moving to FL - soon! Not only were we disappointed that we couldn't leave Riley and Dice with them again, we were also disappointed because we enjoyed visiting them, and we knew it was unlikely we would see our new friends again anytime soon. My apology for taking so long to write this review. We started construction on an addition to our house right before we left Riley and Dice with Eileen and Mike, and have been crazy busy ever since then!

Demetri loved every minute of his stay with Eileen & Mike B. He already is missing his 'Retriever Girls' and can't wait until the next time to stay with them.
Fabulous time with the Golden Retriever girls and their humans, Eileen and Mike. Demetri had a wonderful overnight stay and is eager to see his new friends again.
Demetri enjoyed a wonderful day of play with his new friends, Holly and Maya the resident Golden Retrievers. Eileen and Mike provided a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere which helped Demetri feel 'at home' immediately.
Eileen and Mike are wonderful! She kept me up to date with texts and pictures during my vacation. You can tell they really enjoy playing with the dogs. I couldn't have asked for a better pet sitter, I will be calling them again! :)
It was so wonderful to leave Bailey in a loving home with other dogs to play with rather than the kennel. The Bende's were so nice and welcoming, and their dogs were great with Bailey. She came home absolutely exhausted, which is a great sign that she played hard all week! I'm so sad they are moving and can't be our regular dog-sitters :(
