About Gretchen

I know how it feels when you go out of town and can't take the kids (dogs) with you. It's even worse when you have to leave them with a family member who may not be the most reliable or aware of how dogs behave and heir specific needs. Let me help to put your mind at ease so you can relax and enjoy your time away the way you deserve. Simply put, I love dogs and all their quirky behaviors and don't mind when their are occasional accidents or mishaps. It's bound to happen sometimes and dogs can become nervous when in a new environment.

There is generally someone home 24/7, occasionally there is a 2 hour gap when neither occupant is home due to scheduling (I work the graveyard shift). Our two dogs, while initially a little too excited and sometimes pushy with new pup guests, really enjoy spending time with other dogs. We try to take them on walks daily and a couple times a week we go to the Amazon dog park for more socialization time.

I have started baking my own healthy dog treats and will give your pup as many as you prefer. If your pup has a special diet just advise and I can alter the recipe to make it safe for your pal.

We are accommodating of special needs/diets/routines if needed.

*** As of 3/1/13 we have moved, the map should now show our new location.

Awesome as always. Gretchen was able to accommodate me on super-short notice. Thanks!
I picked up Hiro tonight and he was one wiped out pooch! Anyone who can drain this pup of his energy is tops in my book!
Hiro had a fantastic time with Gretchen and her two dogs. She kept me updated with pictures sent via text message, and I knew that he was having a blast when she sent a photo of him sprawled out in a pile with her two pups, snoozing away. She even had a baggie of home-baked doggy cookies for him to come home with. Thanks for everything!
