About Terri

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

I am a retired LEO offering quality care in your home. I truly believe dogs are happier, and less stressed remaining in their own environment. If you do too, please read on!

Trustworthy, flexible and physically fit, I will care for your pet/s as I would my own. Well....I may leave out the singing part! Dogs have been known to run and hide!!!
I have two furry children, a Golden Retriever (Tucker) and an Alaskan Husky (Iisys), AKA, Ike & Tina (as in Turner). And yes, you got it, we all sing together! It is quite hysterical!

I have always had a bond with animals and will care for your pet/s in a positive and loving manner. My life and career combined have included a myriad of animal/pet experiences, some long and some short, some happy and some sad, each one reinforcing the beauty of unconditional love and unbending loyalty. I will be happy to provide daily updates, and/or pics, of yours!

I currently do not board dogs in my home out of respect to my "Golden Oldie" Tucker. Unlike myself, he has chosen to live out his golden years napping and lying in the warm sunshine.
Ok...sometimes he chases his "wife" around, only to lay down beside her (-:
He has been a true gift in my life, and in return I want to maintain the peaceful and predictable environment he has come to know.

I look forward to meeting you and yours!

Terri is amazing! We felt so at ease leaving our babies with her while we were out of the country for a week. There was an issue with our condo and she was great about informing us about it right away. Also, our flight was cancelled and the trip was delayed an extra 24 hrs and Terri was happy to extend our reservation! She was so loving with our boys and treated them as her own. We are so thankful to have someone trustworthy to leave our fur babies with and will absolutely be using her in the future.
Terri took wonderful care of our elderly dogs. She was prompt and tidy and we felt very comfortable being away. Will use her again!
Terri is fantastic. She spent about an hour getting to know Splash before coming over for the first time. Splash is timid and is still recovering from her previous life prior to being adopted. Terri was so patient with Splash, took the time to understand her personality/preferences, and provided exceptional care. Highly recommend!
Terri is the best!! Absolutely no question!! Occasionally we will skip vacations or weekends away unless my parents are available to watch our 2 large babies. We hate to leave them. Fortunately we met Terri... I think my dogs are still missing her from the weekend they spent together. She is so caring and aware of the dogs needs and gives them her time and love. It's not a quick rush in and rush out job... she visits and enjoys... we love her and love feeling so comfortable that our puppies are happy and in the very best care!!! Both of out dogs were on meds when we left and it was no biggie! That was great!! Thank you Terri!!!! ♡♡♡♡
Terri is wonderful. We took a short trip and she even took care of the cat for us at no additional charge even though we told her the cat should be fine. She really loves and cares for the animals.
Terri was awesome! She came to meet the dogs several days before our trip and provided us with daily updates and pictures while we were away. She was very professional but loving with our pups; we appreciate that since they are an important part of our family! We hope to have Terri come back and do more sitting for us. Thanks Terri!!
Terri was the best. She followed up promptly in all of our communications. Our pup loved her from the very start...even before all of the love & spoiling she gave him while we were away. She went above and beyond our expectations in the time she spent with him each day. She also was super diligent to send us photos of him at least every day. She even got him a doggie toy!! He may have been disappointed that we were home because she was a lot like grandma in her spoilin. Thank you Terri!
Terri is awesome as usual. My pup has a bad ear infection and she has no problem stepping up to take care of him. So nice to leave your fur-kids in capable, caring hands!
We were so happy to have found Terri. She was terrific with our dogs and cat. We prefer to have our dogs stay in our home while we are gone and that was just fine with Terri. She watched over our pets as if they were her own. She was sensitive to their daily routines--the dogs love to play frisbee and run in our backyard. We met Terri in advance and it was apparent she wanted to understand the dogs' individual needs to be sure they maintained their normal routines for meals, walks and attention! She was great about sending photos to us of the dogs and cat. It was such a relief to see that they were happy and safe. We texted back and forth during the trip and she was so responsive. Having Terri come to the house and watch over our pets made our vacation to New York possible and worry free. We will definitely be requesting Terri's help in the future for vacations.
Terri is fantastic! She sends daily updates as well as photos. I felt better about leaving them knowing they were in awesome hands. Thanks, Terri!
Terri did another great job for us.
Terri was fantastic with my dogs. She dropped by after I returned from vacation and they seemed more excited to see her than they were to see me after I was gone for a week!
Terri sent plenty of updates throughout my vacation, so I always knew they were being taken care of.
I will definitely be contacting Terri the next time I go on vacation!
Terri did a great job and I would strongly recommend her to anyone and use her again in the future.
