About Trudy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have had over 35 years experience in primary care of dogs, cats and farm animals. Horses and Dogs hold a special place in my heart and my life! I am located on the outskirts of Rogers on a quiet, private, 12 acre farm where I am fortunate to be able to fulfill my doggy desires with grooming in the store a mere 15 feet from the house. When not grooming a client I am usually found playing with the dogs either in the fenced back yard or inside my home.

I have been boarding dogs through Country Pet since 2002 as well as fostering since 2013 with Ruff Start Rescue. Many many happy (and pleasantly tired after the day/stay) pups have come through here over the years and they all are treated as one of the family.

The lower level family room is wide open for play when it is too crummy (buggy, hot, rainy, cold...) outside for play and the house is easily gated off if some of the visitors require their own "space". This doesn't happen often, but it is workable for those who don't like to socialize.

A typical day is getting up out of bed with us at 5 - 6 am, potty time and breakfast by 6:30 at the latest (YOU provide your own food so that your pup doesn't get an upset stomach either here or when returning home). Hand feeding the finicky eaters is done as necessary and everyone has their own space for eating - separated by bedrooms/door so that they don't get into anyone else's food!

Then it's back to play time and potty breaks as the pups want. Some like to go out and play a lot, others (seniors or those who think they are human) tend to want to stick to us. The downstairs is carpeted for good traction, the living area upstairs has laminate flooring with Doggone Good 6' runners spread throughout the house for those who don't know how to get around on the 'slippery stuff'.

There is a basket of toys in each main room for the fur kids to pick through at their leisure and we love to spend time in the backyard (summer with the wading pool) playing fetch or just hanging out!

The fur kids get to watch the chickens, horses and farm kitties on the other side of the chain link fence and most are in awe of seeing their "first horse" Lol - it is quite funny much of the time!

There are Kuranda cots and dog beds strategically placed throughout my home so anyone can curl up and nap anytime they desire!

We call it quits/quiet time about 10 pm and the pups, myself and my teenage animal loving daughter retire to our respective bedrooms after we have figured out who will sleep best with who! Your pup is certainly welcome to share our beds, or if you desire them crated please bring your own crate. We will be more than happy to put down a pillow for your baby next to the bed if you prefer they not sleep on the bed.

I do have the grooming/retail store on the premises open 6 days a week, so we like to keep Sunday's as a family/fur day and only do pickups or drop offs by appointment only (either EARLY in the morning 6 am to 8 am or LATE at night 8 - 9 pm but by appt. only).
If you need you fur baby picked up or dropped off on Sundays outside of those hours, I'm probably not a good choice for you. lol, I need one day a week for human rejuvenation & family only..... dogs are GREAT!, they don't demand anything other than love and care. (I REALLY don't do phones on Sundays)

No appointments to drop off or pick up are needed:
Monday - Thursday between 1 pm and 8 pm
Friday's 10 am to 8 pm or
Saturday's 9 am to 5 pm

** All other times are by appt. only

All visitors must be current on their shots, including Bordatella and Rabies unless you have a vets written reason as to why your pup should not have shots. If all puppy shots have been given the Distemper shot only has to be within 3 years and once your fur kid has reached the age of 8, with regular vaccinations, we do not require another DHPP. Bordatella must be within 12 months and Rabies within 3 years.

Fun is to be had by all and I guarantee they will go home "pooped" and happy!

References gladly provided as well.

I would love the opportunity to be entrusted with your fur family member(s) so they may enjoy their own vacation while you have to be away.

Thanks for checking us out!

I did not feel my dog received the best care. The host has a lot of other things going on in the day. When I picked my dog up he seemed scared. There were some very big dogs in kennels and behind gates that were making a lot of noise. The host was somewhat friendly but not very accommodating.

Trudy and her family were great! We will definitely bring Kuma back, they were very accomodating of our schedule as we were closing on our new home and were also able to trim Kuma's nails when we requested it after booking. They provided lots of pictures and made sure Kuma was right at home. Thanks Trudy, we really appreciate you caring for our baby!

Trudy was excellent with our french bulldog, Sophie. Sophie can be a handful especially around other dogs so I was nervous to leave her for an extended weekend but Trudy calmed my fears by walking me through her process of pairing dogs that get along and how she handles different situations with dog behaviors. I received updates and pictures throughout the weekend which also helped by nerves! Trudy is very knowledgeable about animals and you can tell instantly she has a passion for them. I would definitely recommend Trudy. Thanks again Trudy!

Trudy was very knowledgeable about dogs, as well as many farm animals. Though the contained play area wasn't anything special to look at, it served the purpose safely and had easy access to the home for safe viewing and care. Trudy had a true passion for safety and care for our dog. Thank You.

Trudy does a great job. My dog was sell cared for and had a lot of fun. I highly recommend her.
Very easy to use you can tell Trudy loves animals I would take snickers back any time
We have found a home away from home for our dog Bennett!
Trudy is awesome and I can tell that Bennett misses her already. She did a great job of keeping us posted on how he was doing along with sending pictures of him. We will definitely be using Trudy again.
