About Jill

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had a number of different mixed breed and purebred (small dogs like Yorkies, Maltese & other Terrier mixes as well as German Shepherds, Border Collies, Shelties, Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers) throughout my entire life and love them all! My two Shelties are very easy-going and friendly without any resource guarding issues and get along well with other dogs.

Because I so greatly value the Dog Vacay model and since I work primarily from home, I wanted to offer the same sort of 'boarding' and 'daycare' for others that I want for my own dogs as they are very sensitive to their surroundings and like lots of attention.

I will accept overnight or daycare guests and treat them just as if they were moving in - and accommodate whatever specific feeding or medication or exercise requests you have to the best of my ability. Your (clean/flea-free/housebroken) dog(s) will be able to sleep where ever they like - as well, I have numerous dog beds, they can be on the furniture and/or in a crate. We can discuss during a meet and greet. And if you want to bring your dog's bed or crate or special blanket over, that's fine too.

We eat healthy here! No treats from China or Milkbones or Purina-anything. My own dogs eat a combination of fresh raw (Darwin's Naturals), freeze dried (Primal or Stella & Chewy), along with Ziwipeak, Honest Kitchen, and/or Natural Planet Organics or Orijen kibble.

They also drink the same filtered water I drink - not from a garden hose! (I always keep some cold in the frig for those that like it that way along with room temp from the tap with an Aquasana filter.)

My regular routine includes a daily walk either in town or out at a nearby ranch in one of the canyons where my horses live. I also bring my dogs to the 'small dog side' of the dog park most days - and if you are comfortable with me doing this for yours, I'd be happy to bring them along. Otherwise, I can leave yours at home when I bring mine and be gone for no more than an hour.

My house has a small fenced grassy yard (with no foxtails) and there is chicken wire attached to the metal rail fencing to securely confine small dogs and keep others out. The dogs do not have access to the yard unless I am home and have the door open.

If your pooch has special needs - or is weight-challenged and can't be around free choice food - we can work around this as well. We can discuss all of this in order to your dog's (or dogs) stay as seamless, stress-free, safe and happy as possible.

Unless it is an extremely quite/mellow or geriatric dog, I probably would not want any large dogs because I cannot give them the sort of exercise needed with my smallish yard - and would not want to put them on the 'big dog side' of the dog park if I can't be over there with them. But in special instances, we can discuss me caring for a large dog in my home.

Jill was great! Extremely friendly, responsible, knowledgeable, and flexible with our changing plans. We can tell our dog had a wonderful time and it was so nice knowing that she would be going on walks and to the local dog park often. Jill really asked a lot of questions to adapt the environment to make it the most comfortable for our dog. Thank you Jill! We will definitely be contacting you again next time that we need a place for Izzy to stay!
