About Emily

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
****Proud mom of a US Army Soldier*************
Looking to add more dog walks to my daily schedule. I have 8 slots to fill! I'd love to be your dog walker!
I have been actively involved in dog rescue for the past 5 years and also have a home childcare business. It never occurred to me to offer pet sitting services until a friend suggested it to me. I am normally always home, I love animals, I'm very trustworthy and my home and backyard is perfect for dogs. Lots of room to roam and a safe fenced in yard. We are the animal rescuers of the neighborhood!
My Husband, Brian has been very supportive of my love of animals and always smiles when I bring home a foster puppy or tell him about a sad story of a dog in a shelter--"We gotta save them all!"
Also, we have beautiful new paved paths right beside my home. Since my dogs play in the back yard most of the day, we normally will only take evening walks. Depends also on the dog...
Please communicate with me the needs of your dog, prefers long walks vs. no walks, whether playtime in the yard is sufficient, and if lazy days are good, etc.
Because of the size of my property, we can accommodate more dogs. But that doesn't mean, I can take more dogs. There is a personal limit I have--but at my home we like to socialize and play, so don't be alarmed if you arrive at my house and see 5 or 6 dogs! If your dog is shy or not used to being around other dogs, my home may not be the right fit. We allow dogs to lay on the couches, sit with us in our family rooms, share our bed at night...we are dog people and we KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING. This is my business and I take pride in my business and the ability to work from home. My dream someday is to move farther out and open my own kennel where I can have more animals in my care and lots of open space--Animal rescue is my passion and I really want to try my best to save them all. What is Doggy daycare all about??? I open my doors every morning at 545am to accommodate people who want their pets to experience lots of playtime with other dogs while their owners work. Sometimes dogs need more exercise and pet owners just don't have the time or energy to make sure their dog is getting proper exercise--at my home, your dog will play all day and be exhausted in time for pickup!!! I will also do my best to ensure your pets experience at my home is 100x better than if you were to board your pet at a boarding facility. No crating for hours a day, active play all day everyday! Walks and safe interaction with other dogs. Your dog will leave my home exhausted and happy--I promise!!
My promise to everyone that stays with me is that all dogs in my care are fully vaccinated and healthy. It is best that when you bring over your pet they do not show any signs of illness that could be passed to other dogs in my care--Common courtesy!! We don't want to spread any sickness to the other dogs. I use bleach (diluted) on the deck and also use the services of a local yard cleaning service.
If at anytime you have any questions or want to do a meet and greet, just ask and we can set up a time to get together.
I truly encourage you to let me care for your fur babies, it's what i do, it's what I LOVE.
Lets talk about repeat customers and referrals....I do give discounts and try my best to make boarding affordable. I appreciate you booking with me and trusting me with your pets, Please don't hesitate to give me a call!
Do you have a dog that needs to lose some weight? Let me help! Ask me how!

I think Daisy enjoyed staying with Emily and her family. I would book with Emily again.
Emily was able to help us out when our regular daycare closed. Our dog had a great time and was exhausted when we picked him up. Emily is great!
I loved her and they way she takes care
Of all the fur babies she has quite the system of taking care of everyone.
Ace was happy to see me but I could
Tell he was not ready to leave all his buddies
I am an over protective doggy mommy and felt very happy leaving him. I will be traveling this summer and feel very happy Ace has a home away from
