Spayed and Neutered dogs under 30 pounds please. The furry guests that my husband and I have stay in our home are treated like one of our own. They have full run of the house, and are never crated. We have a secure privacy fence in our back yard, and the dogs love to go out there, run play, and sun themselves. Inside, there are dog beds and blankets all around, so everyone has a comfy place to hang out. I am a foster for the Because of You Chihuahua Rescue, and have a lot of experience helping small timid dogs feel at home. You are more than welcome to schedule a time to come out an meet me, and see my home before booking a stay for your pup.

How long will you be away from home? I am a pet sitter, and am occasionally in and out, but I am home the majority of the time.
Do you have any children? I do not have any human children, only the furry kind.
What if my dog eats a special food that requires a lot of preparation, or is on a medication? Special diets and care are not a problem. I understand the issues and fears associated with having a special needs dog. Some of the special dogs I've cared for have had the following issues: deaf, blind, kidney failure, diabetes, pancreatic cancer, enlarged esophagus, and more.
I don't believe in vaccinating my dog every year, will you still keep my dog? I do not require specific vaccinations, but I strongly encourage you to vaccinate against Kennel Cough if you are boarding your dog anywhere. Any puppies should have their first three sets of shots before boarding.
What items should I bring with my dog?
-enough food for their stay
-a blanket or bed...something with the smell of home
-leash and harness if you have one
-If they are finicky about what they eat out of, you might bring their bowls too.
-Anything else that you think will make your pet's stay happier
How many animal do you keep at your home? We have 2 cats, 1 Standard Poodle, and 3 Chihuahuas. I also usually have 1 foster dog, and will take up to 4 additional dogs for boarding.
Do you smoke? No, neither my husband nor I smoke.
