About Traci

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are The Winters.

We provide a safe and loving home for your pet(s) so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. We offer a large home a quarter mile from the Highline Trail and Aspen Grove, with a grassy backyard, and no kennels, cages, or concrete floors, unless you bring them. Our grassy yard is completely fenced with standard 6 foot wood. We also have a doggie ramp to the grass for those with stiff joints and/or back issues. Our guests have access to the entire first floor and our backyard, and they are welcome on the furniture.

We offer both daytime and nighttime supervised care of your dog(s), and lots of love and attention. We are currently "in between" dogs of our own, so your pup(s) have our home and family to themselves. We generally book one family at a time unless we are confident both parties will get along. We offer daily walks about a half mile round trip. Your dog is welcome to come with us or stay home.

We are in our 40's with an energetic 9 year old son. I grew up in Southern California, and my husband grew up in South Texas. We have lived in Colorado for over five years. We love it here and plan to stay.

We have extensive experience with elderly dogs, handicapped dogs, and pugs, but we love ALL canines equally. As lifelong dog owners, we know what we were always looking for, but could never find when we had to travel.

As a rule, we prefer to book after a prior meet-n-greet. It helps both parties decide if our home and your pet(s) are a good match. It also helps your pet with any anxiety after drop off as it's a place they've explored before. We prefer a minimum two-night stay, but are very flexible for repeat guests. We charge $34 per night for your first pup, and $25 per night for each additional guest. We also have flexible drop-off and pick-up times.

We offer no "bag fees." Meaning, your dog can bring as many suitcases as necessary to be comfortable. I.e. his/her bed, sleeping crate, toys, doggie dish, leash, food, treats, etc. We will provide a questionnaire at our first meeting that will ask you to describe your pet's exact feeding times and instructions, potty times and instructions, and other general care information. This is required at drop-off or before.

We prefer mild-mannered, well-behaved, and friendly dogs. Energy is OK. Aggressiveness, dominance, or destructiveness is not.

Please have your dog's immunizations up-to-date and provide an emergency contact.

Your pet must be able to be unsupervised, either in his crate or free in our home, for up to two hours during occasional trips to the supermarket.

Your pet must be 110% housebroken.

We look forward to meeting your pups,

The Winters

As before,Finnegan loves going on vacation at the Winter's. As puppy parents, we can enjoy our time away without any worries! We love the photos to confirm that he is settled in and having a great time. Repeat customers over several years
We really appreciated Traci taking us as her sole reservation on a holiday weekend. Our dog, Sammy, is a senior Corgi that requires an extensive list of medications twice a day. Traci did an excellent with all the meds and was very attentive to list of medications twice a day. Traci did an excellent with all the meds and was very attentive to his needs. Sammy seemed very comfortable and content in the pictures Traci sent. She had a nice yard for Sammy to hang out in. We would definitely use Traci again!
