About Halley

18 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello, I'm Halley. I am in my 9th year of being a certified canine massage and acupressurist, and am dedicated to the well-being of your pet. What really sets me apart from other hosts is as part of your dogs stay; they will receive a free massage and acupressure treatment! Massage helps with relaxation and eases tension. It is great for all ages in times that are different from their daily regime, Geriatric dogs benefit from it for those reasons, as well as pain management. I will provide you with a recap of any problems I found in your dog's body. Besides that, massage is a great way to calm and relax, which your dog may need as they will be sad to see you go! Rest assured that they will receive lots of attention and love from us while you are away though.
Please feel free to check out my website regarding massage and acupressure:

I am adamant in helping people’s pets feels as comfortable as possible while their owners are away. I make canine specific salves, made from 100% therapeutic grade essential oils for anxiety and depression, which sometimes can occur when they are away from home. I can apply to your dog to help comfort them. However, they will get lots of love and attention from myself, children, and dog.

My backyard is fully fenced with a 6 ft tall boards, however, there is a small section on the side that has deer fencing on it. Please see pictures. We have 10 acres for your dog to play on if they are well behaved, get along with livestock and other animals, and listen very well.

Because I set my own schedule with my massage clients, I will attempt to cater it to your dog's needs, but I will need to be away from the house on occasion ( up to 4 hours)...this is not every day. We can talk about what is best for your pet and I can try to work around what they need.

Dogs MUST NOT be dog aggressive and MUST get along with children. I have a 5 and 7 year old who are my world, and I will not allow aggressive dogs around our family.

Thank you for your interest, I look forward to meeting you!

Dec 2016
Halley Smith watch my 205lb english mastiff, Baby Brutus and my german shephard / husky mix, Sable. They stayed the week with her and were spoiled with massages, love and plenty of exercise. My mastiff gets nervous in new places, but Halley made him feel and home and calmed him down through massage and unconditional love that she gives him. They both get so excited to see her. Baby Brutus runs to bring her all of his toys. Sable gives paw and begs for a massage. She had both of her knees replaced and Halley uses oils and massage to make her feel like a puppy.
Halley is our first choice in dog sitting and regular pet massage for Sable.

Some people have knowledge of dogs, and some people have instincts for dogs; Halley has both. When I was searching for a canine masseuse and acupressurist for Izes, nothing less would do. I met some very capable healers, but Izes was very selective and was not comfortable with most. Halley has skills and a special sense for animals, she is a gifted healer, and she changed the trajectory of Izes' health in a profoundly positive way.

Halley is also sweet, friendly, organized, and dependable. If you are looking for a place for your dogs to stay where they will be safe, comfortable, and return to you happier, healthier dogs, you could literally find no better place to bring them than to Halley's house. She is a animal healer who also crafts her own therapeutic oils and salves. It is a unique opportunity to be able to leave your dogs with Halley. If her house is available, don't miss the chance to give your dogs a special vacation.
