About Sara and Mike

50 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Your dog will love us. It is just like sending a child to camp. We live on a farm. We play, take long walks, and our 4 legged guests stay in our home. There is an indoor and outdoor play area and unless there are special problems, all dogs will stay in the house. A large fenced in area offers protective outdoor play. We are near Gadsden, Fort Payne, Rome (GA), and 1 1/2 hours from Birmingham or Chattanooga.
Dogs MUST be house trained and friendly to other dogs.
Our dogs, Ginny and Rush, are registered therapy dogs, and are very helpful to us and our guests in their gentle approach to visiting dogs. We work with all guests on harmony and peace with our own pets, and offer them acceptance and love. We have been dog trainers for many years.
We offer quality pro health food and food supplements for sale to our clients available by request.

Our dog Copper had a fabulous vacation with Mrs Sara and Mr. Mike. They are real dog people and know how to treat a fur baby. I did not worry once about his care and the love he was getting from these two amazing people. He has made friends for life.
Sara and Mike took great care of my dog Jazz.
It was an excellent experience, you make an appointment for a meet and greet prior to your reservation to make sure your dog is a good fit for their home, it eases all the worries on drop off day. I dropped my puppy off and she never knew I left. I was sent a photo and video of her playing and having fun, she slept for 2days when she got home.What a wonderful experience, and great piece of mind knowing that she wasn't in a small kennel being walked twice a day...she was part of the family! Thanks Sara and Mike!

Mike and Sara gave excellent care to Smokey. We have left Smokey with them in the past and every time the experience is wonderful for all of us. Thank you Mike and Sara for taking exceptional care of Smokey.
As always, our Zoey had a wonderful time at Mike and Sara's. She's always so happy to see them we can hardly get the car stopped before she's trying to get out of the car. We wouldn't think of taking her any place else.
Thank you Sara and Mike for being so good to our fur baby!!

Sara and Mike are great. The dogs weren't stressed when we picked them up and our doodle fell asleep when he got in the car. We are so grateful that they agreed to look after our little dog who is terminally ill and she was obviously loved on a lot while we were away. We appreciated the pics and texts with updates and highly recommend them if you need a dog sitter.

Dolly loves staying with Sara and Mike. They are wonderful folks who love dogs and take good care of them. The dogs can come and go in a secure area and are welcomed in the house and in the yard.
Once again we took Zoey to Mike and Sara's for a visit while we went away. This is the third time they have taken care of our fur baby for us. She was so happy to see them when we got there and didn't have any problem with us leaving. When we got back she was happy to see us and completely stress free. We know she had a good time because she slept all afternoon. HaHa. We absolutely love leaving Zoey with Sara and Mike and will continue to take Zoey to them whenever we go out of town. They are truly terrific!!

Dolly loved staying with Sara and Mike. There were friends to romp and play with and she was welcomed into their home as one of their own. They are wonderful folks and we highly recommend their service.
Our Lab, Rusty, is always happy to stay with Sara and Mike. They treat him like a family member. Far and away the best place for Rusty to be when he's not with us.
This was our second time taking Zoey to Sara and Mike. When we got there Zoey couldn't wait to get out of the car so she could get to Mike. She went off with Sara as soon as she saw her and didn't have a bit of trouble leaving us. She loves going to visit her friends. We will take Zoey back to to Sara and Mike as often as we go out of town. She's safe and happy there and we can go away and not worry about her.

I loved leaving my baby with Sara and Mike. They were so good with her which helped me relax and enjoy my trip. She was happy when we picked her up. They are so special and I will leave Zoey with her anytime we go away.
Sara and Mike are great. Our lab, Rusty, loves spending time with them. For the first time we feel completely comfortable going out of town and leaving Rusty.
Shelby is the definition of a Velcro dog that does NOT do well left alone! When we arrived for our meet and greet Shelby was very comfortable! Mike obviously enjoys spending time with his animals and Shelby loved this and the other dogs! When we dropped her off Sara took Shelby's bed back to their bedroom and added it to the others around their bed! It was obvious by the way their home is set up that their animals are a priority not an after thought! The dog door onto the gated porch and high fenced yard was perfect! The outdoor tub and shower for romps to the lake was inspired! Shelby can climb a chain link fence and open any gate but the height of the fence was too high to climb and extra locks the Majors added to the gates for her stay allowed her the freedom to come and go with the other dogs! Shelby has an adopted mommy that keeps her when she isn't off enjoying life, without her Shelby would definitely be repeat visitor number four! When we conflict with family trips again we would absolutely love to have Mike and Sara keep Shelby!

Honey is a pit bull mix and sometimes this scares people away from her; however, Sara and Mike welcomed her into their home with open arms. Sara said that she does not think Honey has a mean bone in her body and we agree. Honey had the best time playing with Mike and Sara's three fur babies and she was treated like another member of their family. We received pictures and updates on Honey and could tell she was having a wonderful time on her "vacation". We are so excited that we found someone that would love and spoil Honey like their own. We will definitely give Mike and Sara a call the next time we are going out of town.

Sara and Mike have a perfect set up for dogs. Our dog uses a doggie door and goes in and out as he pleases. Sara's house is also set up the same way with a fenced in back yard. We drove our dog 90 miles one way to their house. The rates are reasonably priced and our dog loved playing with their three dogs. Sara was really good with our dog and even managed to calm him down. Will definitely board with them again.

Mike, Sara and family were so wonderful to Smokey and us during his stay. They sent pictures to me so I did not worry. The care and love Mike and Sara gave Smokey was superb. When I picked him up he was calm and clean. This was a wonderful experience. Thank you Mike, Sara and family.

Sara and Mike not only love dogs, but they have built a facility that is totally secure yet fun for the dogs. They cater to the dogs with a lot of love and baskets of toys. I have never felt so comfortable leaving my three characters with anyone before. I appreciate them so much.

We are so happy that Sara & Mike had our two little guys for the two weeks we booked with them.

They are true dog lovers and have made accommodations to make it easy for dogs to integrate into their household along with other dogs.

Shortly after we left town we called Mike to see how they were adjusting and he reported they were doing just fine while curled up next to him.

Sara and Mike were awesome ! (5-stars!) They really made Sophie feel like home and were regimented enough to keep her in her routine. I could not express how much it meant that they accepted her as family and provided me updated pics through Sophie's stay. I was able to complete my business trip without constantly worrying if she was okay. Sara and Mike, thank you !!!

They were wonderful! Sara gave us a tour of their house and showed us all the places that our dog could go. They welcomed our dog with open arms and treated him like their own. The basket of dog toys was any dog's dream come true and the large high fenced in yard was ideal. We really enjoyed the texts and pictures we got while we were away. Sara and Mike really went above and beyond our expectations and we will be using them again!
