About Russel

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
!!! the calendar might not show booked but I might be. This is because of the new search system. Message me before moving on to next choice I will get back to you ASAP!!!!!!!
I'm Retired from state of New Jersey Dept of Corrections with lots of time on my hands and my wife only works part time. We are always home and really enjoy spending our time being around dogs since we are big dog lovers.
In March 2014 we adopted an English Springer Spaniel from ESRA. He gets along very well with other dogs with the exception of UN-Neutered Males!!!
I evaluate all dogs at the meet and greet for our safety and your pet's safety. Once you have decided to use us for your dog, We promise you that your dog will be well taken care of, and loved them just the way you do.
We are located 1 mile from the Fairless hills exit of RT 1 north. : Easy on easy off :
AGAIN - All dogs MUST be Spayed or Neutered and have all shots! Updated Rabies and Distemper either a one year or 3 years and Bordatella. Your dog MUST BE HOUSE BROKEN (No Pee Pads), and should be Child and DOG friendly! It's just my wife and I at the house now, but the kids and grandkids stop by all the time..

Again:If the calendar shows BOOKED, MESSAGE ME before moving on to next choice. Depending on the group I have, I can sometimes add another dog. But your pets safety is my first concern. Also sometimes a starting or ending date will affect the site and show booked, when I really might be open. I will get back to you ASAP
Daycare is priced for a 8 hour day, if it needs to be longer we will custom quote the day.

Thank you, we are waiting for your calls.

Russ loves dogs and they love him. We have used Russ several times for our golden retriever Rosie and she loves staying with "Uncle Russ"!! He keeps us informed and up to date with pictures. We have used him from a single night to 8 days and are very satisfied that our dog is getting the best care possible! Highly recommended!!

Russ is the best !!!! Our Penny needed to have her new meds and Russ said that it was not a problem and he would handle it !! Thanks Russ
Russ watched my 11 month old puppy for the first time for 2.5 weeks while I was on vacation, and I knew she was in great hands, as Russ also watched my previous dog for several years. Even though my pup Greta is very active, he was great with her, and the stay was stress-free for me! I always feel totally confident that my dog is safe and well taken care of while I am gone. Thanks again, Russ!
