About Heather

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a stay at home mom with a part-time dog grooming/ boarding business in our home (I am a Certified Groomer). I have an 10 yr old daughter and we have 3 wonderful k-9 fur-babies. Duke is our 10 yr old boy, He is a flat coat retriever and Lucy is our 10 yr old little girl, she is a Shih Tzu. A few months ago we adopted another Shih Tzu named Owen. He is around 5 years old. We also have 3 kittens. Wyatt, Teegah, and Samurai. They are over 1 old now. They are always kept in another area away from any k-9 guests, Just incase.

We have over 8 acres of land to walk your fur-baby on during the nice weather and we also have a fenced in area for them to run free while we are playing outside. Between my husband and I we will take care of your precious pooches.

Heather O is a great sitter. My bichon loves staying with her and she is taken excellent care of.
In a word..AWESOME..This was the first time away from Mom and Dad for our Pippers .Our Pip is (pad trained and crated at night) spoiled rotten and used to her schedule( 3 meals a day plus treat time) which Heather assured me would not be a problem and apparently wasn't. Heather addressed our worries with daily texts and pics, along with understandingly fielding my calls...what can I say, she's our baby . Our little Pip came home as happy as can be. While there, we had her groomed and as always Heather did a super job. I would not for one second hesitate to use Heather again if the need arose. If you need someone to care for YOUR Baby...Heather would be perfect.
Heather and her family made use feel comfortable leaving Rusty. Great experience!
Heather was awesome! I took my GSP and Chocolate Lab for 5 nights and I received pictures and updates about them daily. The fenced in yard kept my fur babies busy and entertained during the day and at night they got to cuddle up and snuggle on the couch with Heather and her family.
My dog is very old and needs a lot of supervision. She has stayed with Heather and her family 2 times and has done very well. She does not come home all stressed out like at the kennels. Heather is very soft spoken and gentle with her. I'm happy to have found a local person to take care of her when she has to be left behind.
Baxter had a great time on his vacation! Heather did a great job communicating with us while we were gone. It was great to be able to relax on vacation and not have to worry about Baxter! We will have Baxter stay with Heather again!
Tizzy had no complaints on her stay with Heather and her family. I was worried about Tizzy as she is an only pet. We felt so comfortable when we met Heather and met her other dogs. She sent me a picture and when I would send her a text regarding Tizzy she got back to me right away. I know Tizzy was pampered with belly rubs and cuddles. I would certainly have Tizzy stay again at Heather's. She has rescue dogs and that says so much to me as Tizzy is a rescue dog also.
Heather was awesome! It was a last minute stay, and Heather could not have been more accommodating. She was very kind and worked around my schedule for drop off and pick up. I could also tell that Remi (my puppy) really liked Heather. I will definitely go back to Heather in the future!
We could never explain how thankful we are to have met Heather O and her loving family. Heather was perfect for our two Jack Russell terriers. She understood Deuce's food allergies and our concern for his current health with an ear infection that she took great care of him. She is great with communication and sent pictures to ease our minds. We were over 13 hours away and had complete confindence in Healther O to take care of our "boys". We could not have asked for a better dog sitter and will absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone we know. We felt very comfortable with Heather O and by the pictures she had sent, the boys LOVED all the extra attention and love her family gave them! We will definitely work with her again for anything dog sitting related!
My dog returned from his 9 day stay relaxed and happy. My number 1 priority.

Heather worked hard at accommodating some awkward timing of drop-off and pick up. That made life so much easier for us.

Heather's, personality, home and yard were perfect for my dog's size (32 lbs) and disposition (Velcro).

I have no reservations in recommending Heather for dog boarding services.
