We LOVE dogs and love dog sitting for other folks' dogs too. We have a ranch home--so no steps for older pooches. Large, fenced in back yard, with plenty of shade. But, we are dog lovers, so your best friend will be inside with us. We have a new dog, Tara. She is an 11 year old Golden. She is still adjusting to being a dog hostess, so a Meet and Greet is essential. !
