About Yvette

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
**NEW Stays Require a Meet N Greet First** 24/7 Care Pickup/Drop off Times -7am-7pm
Weekends/Holidays- 9am-7pm. Family environment, personal attention.
New Fence 5' Tall, Locked & Supervised w/almost 12,000 SF of running room! Murphy is loving showing his "friends" his new expanded yard! It's his "own" doggy park in his backyard!!

Why a Meet N Greet? A Meet N Greet simply lets us "assess" that Your Pup is a good Fit for Our "Pack". Most take no longer than 15-30 minutes.

My "passion for pups" is now my profession. Home day & night to give the pups in our care extra attention. We limit to 4 guests/day-with "our pack". This showers everyone with the attention they need. We saw a need for more personal attention for both pups & humans. Thank you Charleston for a wonderful 1st year! Minutes from Savannah Hwy (17), downtown Charleston & neighboring Kiawah & Seabrook Islands.
Murphy says, "Come to my Paradise for a stay, you will be having as much fun as your parents!!"

My Goal is to improve life for you & your pup. We give that "home away from home" family feeling. If you require some care I haven't listed, please feel free to ask. I always do my best to accommodate your requests.

~7am-7pm Weekdays. 9am-7pm Weekends/Holidays- We keep them entertained, exercised & best of all cuddles! Need more time? Book for Boarding!

Murphy's Paradise is unlike any other dog vacay!
Our highlights are:
We took the Off-Leash Play Safety Pledge, created by the Dog Gurus. We have a large fenced backyard. (Getting larger soon)
Convenient to Kiawah & Seabrook Islands. Savannah Hwy 17 close by. Downtown Charleston less than 15 mins away. Your pups "home away from home!"

I grew up with dogs my entire life. My mom showed Afghan Hounds & we often had "boarding" pups while I was growing up. There's never been a day without "pups" in my life. What makes us different?
-Knowing Dog Behavior/Dog Body Language
-Close Supervision at All Times
-Easing Separation Anxiety
-Family Atmosphere
-Dog Training using Positive Behavior Modification techniques

We really want your pups to feel as if, they are in their "home away from home". Wild peacocks visit from time-to time outside our front yard. Pups love to watch from our very secure front door.
We live mins from the James Island County Park with trails to walk. Johns Island is beautiful & thankfully rural, the way we like it.

~~A little about our "Pack"......
Murphy loves all dogs as he has been socialized since he was a puppy. Honey is one of our older pups. She is "sometimes" fearful of larger dogs, so we assess LARGE pups first to see if Honey will be ok. ** Ask for a Meet and Greet** Perrito is also one of our senior pups & is a happy guy, who doesn't like photos. He seems to have the attitude, that guests don't infringe on his meal times, so he is great with having them around. We truly want all of us including you, to have a great stay here. We take great care and ask a lot of questions to make sure your pup "fits" well in our "Pack"!

We don't travel more than 15 miles for pet taxis. Location Johns Island, SC
Sorry, we don't accept puppies, we have carpet. Our vacays should be house trained & non-destructive behavior at home.
Everyone needs a Meet N Greet first. It's important for me to know what to expect from your "pup" during their stay. This is an open play with all pups socializing together with big & small free & mingling.
~If pick up is going to be "After" 24 hrs- End of Stay Time- a Daycare Fee will be added giving you an additional 8 hours.***BOARDING QUOTE is for a 24 hr stay. 24/7 care!!*** Only 4 spaces

We look forward to being your choice for your pups.

My dogs loved it there!! They were so comfortable and played so much, they were tired and happy when they got home!!! Would definitely use her again!!!!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Yvette! My dachshund Lily has been going to daycare twice a week for a long time now, and has also done lots of sleepovers. Trusting someone to care for your fur baby isn't easy, but Yvette will win you over so quickly! She'll treat your doggie like a member of her own family, and when you go to pick up your dog, you might have a hard time convincing your them to leave! Lily can tell when we've turned onto Yvette's street, and by the time we get to her house Lily's tail is wagging and she's trying to jump out of the car to race to the front door. If that doesn't tell you how awesome Yvette is, I don't know what will!
Yvette did a great job in sitting for me. My dog came home tired and happy! I would highly recommend her.
