About Sarah

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello my fellow animal lovers/protectors. My name is Sarah and I'm excited to help you make sure your fuzzy kids are happy, safe and loved while you are away. I love cats, dogs, birds, reptiles and critters alike and I am committed to making their time away from you as comfortable and happy as possible.

I currently have two big and squishy dogs and two cats that LOVE attention (on their terms.) I have fostered dogs from many different dog rescues including MN Paws, Save-a-Bull and SafeHands and love helping out dogs in need. I have fostered old dogs and very young puppies, big and small dogs, little fluffy pups and big strong bully breeds and I'm comfortable with them all.

I have dealt with my fair share of doggy illnesses such as my oldest dog, Earl, having surgery on both of his back legs after tearing his ACL's when he was 1.5 years old. Walter (my other dog) has Lymes Disease and Earl has Anaplasmosis - both of which are chronic and require regular medication if/when symptoms come on. My cats have also required oral medications for urinary crystals and viral infections. I am comfortable with giving your pet any medication they need and will make it as quick and easy on them as possible.

I love going for walks and would enjoy having your pup show me around their neighborhood. Let me know if you would like me to help make your pet's day great!

Such a great experience! Thank you SO much Sarah and Kristen! Jax is so worn out from all the fun he had at your place !
Perfect!
Great service by sarah! Highly recommend.
Wonderful people and our puppy had a great time. Daily updates and pictures. Highly recommened Sarah!
Lily came home relaxed and happy from her vacay. Her hosts had genial, kind dogs who played well with her. Lily's meds were not forgotten and she found a very comfy chair to lounge in. Lily did note, however, a lack of squirrels on her walks. (We'll bring a batch next time she vacays with you, Sarah.)

Sarah and Kristen were excellent hosts! My dog Benson is about 2 years old and has a tendency to be a little nervous around strangers, but they were great with him, as were their dogs that are much larger than he is. Sarah sent pictures and update messages each night with a summary of how my dog was adjusting and usually a funny story about what they did that day and what silly antics Benson was up to. I highly recommend Sarah and would definitely feel comfortable leaving Benson with her again!

Sarah and her loving family provided a safe and caring home for my sensitive, older dog. My guy was walked daily, provided with a comfortable bed to ease his arthritic joints, and most importantly, loved & cuddled by several pairs of hands. Sarah's observations and sharing indicated that she really understood my sweet dog's personality and needs. She offered ideas to make his next stay even more comfortable. I appreciate the quality care, kindness and convenience of location. Thanks Sarah!

Taz had a great stay with Sarah!

Being a 10 month old puppy with tons of energy I was glad that Sarah's dog Walter took Taz's exercise regime on as his personal responsibility. Daily walks followed by lot's of tag and wrestling with
Walter had Taz snoring on the floor our first night back from our weekend away, which made coming home after a busy weekend easier.

I so appreciated that someone was home with him most of the time. House rules matched ours as he was allowed on the furniture and got bed time snuggles, just like home.

Sarah's easy going nature and daily updates with photos made leaving my puppy for the first time much less stressful.

Taz will definitely be a repeat customer, he misses Walter.

Thanks Sarah!

I have a 3 year old bulldog named sweetpea. Me and my husband had to go for vacations and thats when i met sarah. She is amazingly nice. I cant believe she took care of my girl so well. She updated us with everything about sweetpea and posted her pictures too when I used to be worried for her well being. And I get absolutely relieved. I would definitely say Sarah is gonna be the second home for my dog when I am not around. Me and my husband are very glad that we found sarah and great full for her services.

Sarah watched our two terriers for 10 days while we were out of the country. I was a little concerned because our dogs are high maintenance as they are both rescues. Sarah made me feel very comfortable the first time I brought them over, and did a fantastic job while we were gone. With daily updates and photos, we were so at ease on our trip and looked forward to hearing what they were up to. They truly were on their own vacation! Charlie, our puppy mill rescue, actually came home more relaxed than when we dropped her off. We couldn't have been happier with her and we will use her as long as she'll have them!

Sarah and her partner were great with Ody. Even though he and their big dog decided to keep a respectable distance, Ody was part of the pack. We got daily updates and pix and they understood his unique personality. I would highly recommend this doggy vacay and would definitely use them again.

Thanks Sarah!!!

Sarah and Kristin took excellent care of Lou. We received daily updates and pictures while on vacation that were a treat to get. We will definitely be using them again when we need Lou to be taken care of. Thanks again to both of you for the excellent care you gave Lou!!

Sarah took great care of my Boys last Tuesday and was very sensitive to my older dog, Monet's, specific health concerns and needs for a little extra care and caution. I look forward to having her take care of my Boys again soon.
Nice home with friendly host and dog and good sized fenced-in back yard. A very good experience.
This was our pup's first time with Sarah and fam, and they were WONDERFUL. He got LOTS of play time, walks, attention and snuggles, and we got lots of updates and pictures. When we picked up Inky, he was EXHAUSTED =) We will definitely be returning!

First time visit, they were great with both our boys, we will definitely use them again!!
Sarah was wonderful! My husband and I had Army training on the same weekend, and a friend backed out of watching my two dogs. So very short notice, I messaged Sarah for a meet and greet Sunday night, had a meet and greet Wednesday, and dropped the dogs off Thursday. I have a seven year old lab mix, and a five month puppy, and Sarah didn't even bat an eye taking on a puppy full of energy. She sent multiple updates and pictures while I was gone, and I felt so comfortable leaving my babies with her. She has two dogs and they were wonderful with my dogs. I will definitely book with her again if my pups need a vacay!

Our pup, Maddie, had a wonderful time. Sarah made sure she felt at home with her family and their dogs. She checked in with updates everyday. We will definitely have her stay with Sarah again.
My pup had a great time with Sarah. Snuggles, walks, and play time with the resident pups. Simple and informative daily updates to keep me appraised of her happiness. Big thanks to Sarah!
Sarah and her family were great. We left our two (kind of needy) dogs with them and never worried. Sarah sent photos and a text everyday, which was awesome. It reassured us, and it was fun to be able to see and hear how they were doing. We will definitely use Sarah again and recommend her to friends. It was truly a great experience..
