About Denise

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Come stay, it's the next best thing to being at home!
Daycare, overnight boarding and occasionally I can offer visits to your home in the area.
I have been petsitting professionally for the past 6 years and have great references.
I have had a love for animals and passion for their welfare, since childhood. As a result, my home is full of animal companions, all rescues of course.
I am grateful to have space, time and energy to share with guest dogs of any age (experienced with puppies, seniors and disabled dogs). Doggy gated areas and crates are provided, as needed for separate quarters or simply some quiet time.
I have worked for vets in the past and have some tech experience.
Most of the time I am at home, as I telecommute part time from my home office.

There are resident indoor cats, so cat friendly dogs are welcome. Of course there will be curiosity even if your dog is acquainted with cats already. Just want to be sure there is not any aggression or predatorial behavior.

My home is a ranch style house, in a wooded subdivision, at the end of a quiet road, just 5 miles outside of Carrboro/Chapel Hill areas. I have a large fenced in yard, bordered by the woods and a creek. Also a large deck for sunning or napping in the shade.

Papi and Penny love having guests to play with and lounge around the house. They can be a bit bossy, so they get along best with more submissive personalities. We will have an initial meet and greet to be sure of compatibility.
I usually limit my guests to 3 maximum, so that everyone gets enough attention and their own space. In most cases your dog will be the only guest.

Please note that there is a surcharge of ten dollars for holidays (New years eve, day,Christmas eve & day, Easter day,Labor & Memorial days & July 4th).

If you have 2 or 3 dogs, there is an extra fee of 10 dollars per dog (per night).
I also offer animal communication and Healing Touch for Animals sessions, as extra services, which can be very beneficial for health and behavioral issues.

Also, I have experience with and welcome the exotic pets i.e. bunnies, guinea pigs, other rodents & some reptiles) inquire for a lower/custom rate. There are resident bunnies and guinea pigs, in a separate room.

I will do my best to meet your pet companion's needs and make them feel at home, whether they want to play chase, fetch,wrestle, or simply lounge around, have belly rubs, get brushed, and of course lots of TLC daily.
Looking forward to meeting and spoiling your baby too. Get packed and bring 'em over to play!

Denise was great, very personable and clearly dog loving person. Our quiet basset hound was perked up by the other dogs in house.
Thanks to Denise for taking good care of Gorky. It's his first time being apart from us for over 2 days, but he was quite comfortable with that coz Denise provided a great atmosphere for him to fit in. Denise was patient to answer all my questions Denise provided a great atmosphere for him to fit in. Denise was patient to answer all my questions all the time, and kept me updated, which made me no worries.

Denise is a caring and kind sitter. It was clear to us how much Denise cared for Lucy, and it was great to know that Lucy had a big back yard and a few pals to play with. We received pictures daily!
