About James

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
!-!-! MEET 'n' GREET REQUIRED BEFORE BOOKING !-!-!

Hi! I'm a professional dog guy. I have been boarding dogs at my home for many years. I've worked in kennels/daycare's before and after attending Dog Training School. I have been doing it full time since.

I've cared for hundreds of pets. rodents, reptiles, cats, ferrets, and of course doggies. :-)

Professional care by a professional in the pet field. Safety and activity is the goal.
Certified in dog and cat first aid (Former lifeguard for 6 years as well).

INDOOR: Basement is all for the dogs. They ARE allowed on ALL furniture, comfy couches, chew toys, and windows to look out from. Wrestling, playing games, sleeping, toy chewing, house watching, and lounging are some of the things pups love to do here.

OUTDOOR: Big fenced-in backyard (Dogs are only let out supervised) with many smells :) Dogs will be cared for according to client's requests.

DOG PARK: Great dog park nearby which I am licensed to visit, and do so often. I am familiar with the regular visitors.
Your dog WILL have fun there(If requested).

He/She will spend all day with me doing a bunch of fun stuff!

Pictures were taken during: Dog Vacays, Dog Training Sessions, Dog Sitting visits, , backyard, or especially cute events :)

Let's Meet 'n Greet... check out the open space, comfy couches, and what does your dog like to do ?

James was thorough and friendly. I appreciated all of his questions about Teddy at our meet and greet. Ted got to play with some other pups and run around in the yard. Drop off and pickup was easy.
Our dog, May, seemed to make herself at home at Jame's house. She came home happy and healthy.
I appreciate that James cared for our 2 dogs, Bria and Parker mostly by themselves. They are Jack Russell terriers who don't always get along with other dogs upon first meeting them so they require a bit of monitoring early in a new relationship with other dogs. Also one of our terriers is very afraid of thunderstorms. Unfortunately, while we were away, there were storms several days in a row. He managed to calm her and send us pictures.

Most importantly, Bria and Parker appeared to be well cared for and safe. He sent several pictures and responded to our emails.
