About Uta

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to the Furry Place. We love dogs, have a large house with a big backyard and a pool to play in. Daily walks, play time and of course, lots of snuggles. We have a Golden Retriever and a Lab mix, they are very friendly and love to play with other dogs. My Lab is blind and I used to have a deaf Golden, so dogs with disabilities can be accommodated and I am familiar with giving medications. The pups sleep inside at night. Crate, doggie bed or couch, the same way they sleep at your home. My schedule is very flexible and there is almost 24/7 supervision. Small and large dogs are welcome. Currently, there are no feline residents at the house. Short and long term hosting is available, your pup's stay can be totally customized towards your needs. A happy woof, woof and see you soon.

Like always - the best! Lots of love and care for our Buster. Thank you Uta!
Uta was an amazing dogsitter for our two Golden Retrievers! She was very attentionate, taking them on many walks and even excursions to parks where they could swim. One of our Goldens is notorious for often getting ear infections after swimming even though we dry her ears, but Uta kept her ears spotless, so she was a happy camper! She sent us many photos and even video updates, which we loved receiving. Because it was over Christmas, our two pups were spoiled with Turkey treats! Uta is spectacular and we will definitely be returning!!

We were so pleased with the care Jack received staying with Uta. She took the time to keep us up to date by sending texts with pictures every day! She is a gem!
Chloe was treated very well. She got walked, attention and treats! Thank you, Uta
Uta was wonderful. This was Bailey's first stay. She stayed one night, home for two nights, then back to Uta's for 5 nights. Bailey was very excited to see Uta when she returned which "said" a lot. Uta sent pictures while we were away which was great because we could see Bailey was having a great time. I feel very comfortable leaving Bailey there and would not hesitate to go back. I am VERY particular about who cares for Bailey and we do not usually board her (we leave her with family and neighbors). I would highly recommend Uta!

Hershey and Molly enjoyed their stay with Uta. Uta took very good care of them, while we were away. Thank you very much, Uta.
Uta is the best. Gus always leaves her place in high spirits! We've tried various arrangements before (kennels, vets, etc) and our dog has never had a good experience. The first time we left him at Uta's he came home happy and healthy!
Great care! Fun in the sun!!! Never worry about Honey at all when she is at Uta's.
Yet another successful stay with Uta! Our doggie Cody was so well cared for... Uta took him on walks, hikes, swims. this place is like doggie camp! He is coming back this weekend!
This is the best place to leave your pup!
Honey loves going to A Furry Place! They are great with her, long walks, swimming and lots of ball playing! when we arrive she jumps out of the car and runs to Uta. when we pick her up she is relaxed and happy!.
Uta is a very lovely and caring individual! Uta has watched our pup Cody multiple times in the past! He has some aggression issues with humans and needs time to warm up so we were worried about him being away from us. Uta did an amazing job letting Cody get comfortable and warm up to them! And of course he did! She sent us pictures when we were on vacation and made us feel at ease! I look forward to having Cody at the fur palace in the future!!!

We love leaving her with you! She always comes home happy and tired. Thanks!
Honey came home tired and happy! Thanks again for the great care and play time.
She is awesome!
Uta and Jim take Honey on long walks and swimming and she just loves them! I think she is depressed when she gets home because she misses all the activity with them and the other dogs!
Honey can't wait to see Floyd again! She always comes home tired and happy.
Honey slept for two days when she came home!
She had a great time!
Uta was awesome and very patient with our VERY energetic Boston Terrier. Gus has never left another care giver/shelter in as good of condition as he did with Uta. We definitely trust Uta to care for Gus in the future!
She had a great time! See you soon!!!!!!
This is my second time using Uta and it was wonderful! My dog Java has a little bit of separation anxiety at times but she loves Uta, no hesitation at all...Java runs right in and comes home happy. I get update pictures from her of Java hiking and swimming. She is amazing!

Uta is amazing. Our dog Lily stayed with her for a week. Uta's home is very dog friendly for my couch sleeper. She got lots of walks and felt very much at home. Thanks so much, Uta!
Uta treats the dogs like her own! Honey was so relaxed and happy that when my husband was loading her bed and food in to the car, she just sat in the living room. He had to call her to come with him!
Uta was great for our dog Lexi! We felt very happy about the great treatment and very nice home for Lexi to stay in. I'm sure she liked all the nice furry friends and would like to return some time soon.
As always, Uta took great care of our 2 year old Golden Retriever. He loves going to her home, swimming in the pool, taking long walks and playing with all the other pups! Today he is exhausted and taking a nap :)
We just picked up Luna after 5 nights with Uta. It was the longest we'd left her with anyone besides family, but we were very comfortable after our meet and greet. Uta's so comfortable with dogs, and nothing seems to faze her! Her home is very dog-friendly, too.

We loved the pictures and texts - we could see for ourselves that Luna was having a great time. Uta told us how Luna and Maggie liked to be together, and I was happy that Luna had a special bond with one of Uta's dogs.

A nice surprise was that Uta put a dog toy and treats in Luna's bag.

We'll definitely return to Uta, Maggie, and Floyd!

This is the best place to leave your pet if you love them! No kennels, just fun in the sun with a family that loves dogs. Thanks!
Great! Uta loves the dogs!
What a great time Honey had! This was a "spa" weekend. Hiking, swimming and playing with the pack. See you next weekend Floyd and Maggie Mae .....oh and my step parents, Uta & Jim!
Thanks Uta for taking care of Mishty
Great host.
Another stay at A Furry Place and Honey made new friends and had a great time! She went hiking and swimming with 5 other dogs and got lots of kisses from a happy Lab. This is day two at home and she is still sleeping! Uta is a great pack leader and I never worry about Honey during her stay with Uta.

Bella had a great time playing at Uta's house. There were many other dogs for her to play with. We dropped her off in the morning and picked her up that eve. The only down side...I tried calling Uta and tx messaging her throughout the day and got no response. I was extremely nervous going to pick up Bella that evening because I didn't know what to expect. I didn't like being worried about her all day and not receiving any pictures or return phone calls or tx messages. I guess the important part is we got her back and all in one piece.

Uta was wonderful!! Her place was a doggy day care heaven. My chocolate lab enjoyed himself in the pool and made himself right at home.
Honey came home and slept for 2 days! She had a wonderful time and can't wait to see you all again in June! Thanks from a happy mom and dad.
Uta is great! I have two very old Aussie's that had never been boarded before. In the pictures Uta sent me while I was away, both of my boys seemed engaged and happy. The true test was when I arrived to pick them up. My Aussie's were relaxed, calm and not overly tired. Uta took very good care of Tony And Palooka.

Really happy with Uta and family! They really love dogs and take excellent care of them. I'm a bit over protective of my 80 lb baby, but she love it there! When we pull into the drive way she starts crying to get out and runs to the front door! Great place for your dogs.

Uta did a great job with our dog. She sent us updates and photos of our dog. She was flexible with our drop off and pick up times.
This was our first experience with leaving our dogs with anyone other than family. The website and concierge was easy to use and terrific. The family in Uta @ Furry Friends that watched our two dogs was wonderful! We felt so comfortable and we returned to two really happy dogs. Thanks so much for your love and care!

Honey had a great time and she loves Floyd and Maggie! She slept for two days when she came home. Uta treats her like she is her own. I am so happy with her care we never worry about her while at Uta's.
Uta is excellent with our Ridgeback mix, Honey! Her 2 dog's are sweet and playful. She sent pictures and updates which made us feel comfortable with our decision to leave Honey with her. We can relax and enjoy our time away knowing Honey is happy and well cared for!

I'm a little late with my review. Our 1 year old Golden Retriever Hutch had a great New Year's holiday with Uta. She and her husband take such good care of the dogs.
You can really see that Uta loves dogs. We received updates and photos often and felt comfortable that our pup was in good hands.
We left our Buster with Uta and is was so comforting to know that he is well taken care of. Uta is definitely a dog loving person. She is very experienced with dogs and very caring. I loved getting the text updates with photos and new updates - it's always so comforting to know our pup is having a great time. We will definitely be back, and I highly recommend Uta's doggy boarding to anybody who is considering.

My boy had an awesome time with Uta and her resident dogs, I picked him up after 3 days and he was blissfully "pooped". This was our 2nd visit here and Mickey gets really excited once we get near her house. Summer camp for dogs! His next stay will be for almost 3 weeks and I am not nervous any more leaving my boy with somebody, I know he will be in good hands and will have a blast playing all day. I'll be the one being a mess because I'll miss him ;-)

I just picked my dog up after 5 nights with Uta. I can't say enough fabulous things about her and the care given my dog!
He was exercised daily (both walks and swimming), and he had a great time playing with her two beautiful dogs (I know because she sent me pictures).
And most importantly to me, I know my dog was in a safe and loving home while I was gone- priceless!

We were very lucky to find Uta to watch our 9 month, high energy Aussie puppy. She truly loves dogs/animals. You can tell by talking to her that she considers her dogs her children. She has a calm personality that puts both you and your puppy as ease. She has a great house in the hills near walking trails, parks and a lake - a perfect location for dogs.

I highly recommend Uta!

We left our two GSDs with Uta for two weeks while on vacation. She was wonderful with them. She is kind, funny and very sincere about pets. She sent us constant email updates and photos. I would recommend her anytime to all my friends and family!!
We were lucky to find the perfect host through dogvacay to board our golden retriever, Peanut, for 2 weeks. Uta took super good care of Peanut and sent us photos/emails updates whenever she could. While we were on vacation, so was Peanut and she enjoyed it so much :) Thanks again Uta!

Our Truman seemed to really enjoy his vacation w/Uta and family of canine's. He appeared to be well cared for as he was on meds during his stay! Thanks Uta!
What a wonderful experience! Up until now whenever we have gone on vacation, we have had a family member as a house sitter. Even though that has not always worked out as well as we had hoped, we were cautious about leaving our 2 Golden Retriever puppies (Daisy and Lady) with anyone we didn’t know. Since we have never done this before, the “meet and greet” was very important to us. From the moment we pulled up to the house and met Uta and her 2 dogs, Floyd (a 3 year old Golden) and Maggie May, we immediately felt very comfortable.

Uta told us exactly how she would care for our dogs and what to expect. She asked lots of questions to make sure she understood what we wanted then followed our instructions consistently and completely. Someone was with the dogs 24/7, they were never left alone. The house and the yard are both big and comfortable. The backyard is fully fenced and backs up to a big open space area. There is a pool that dogs are welcome to use but only when someone was there to monitor them.

Uta took the dogs for walks, to the dog park, even to work! Every day we received e-mails and pictures. She treated our dogs like they were her own and made sure they felt comfortable and enjoyed themselves. Uta’s 2 dogs are cute and very friendly. Both of our girls fell in love with Floyd and followed him everywhere. Uta was so sweet – it felt like we had known her forever. She obviously loves dogs – we have never felt so good about leaving our girls in someone else’s hands.
We cannot recommend Uta highly enough and would not hesitate to have our girls stay with her again. We are sure that they miss their boyfriend Floyd!

Uta was so kind and attentive to my dog Charlie. Her home is clean and dog friendly. Charlie had so much fun he cant wait to come back. Thank you so much!!
Our dog Dory had so much fun staying with Uta and her two dogs while we were away on an 8 day vacation. Each day I received pictures and sometimes videos of Dory playing, going on walks, and being at the dog park. Uta also sent updates about how Dory was doing as well as a summary for the week after we picked her up. Dory came back exhausted and happy from her week of playing on her doggy vacay! We would highly recommend sending your dog to stay with Uta!

This was Gromit's very first time being away from home. I felt just like I did when I took my children to daycare for the first time.

Uta was very good at putting us both at ease. She sent me daily pictures and text messages to reassure me that Gromit was doing fine. By the third day Gromit was comfortable exploring in the back yard and napping on Uta's feet.

She gave Gromit a daily walk along with her two dogs Maggie and Floyd. She even took them to the dog park one day.

I will definitely bring Gromit to Uta's when I'm in need of day or overnight care.

Thank you very much Uta!
