About Sarah

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi, I'm Sarah. My husband's name is Chad. We are an animal-loving couple who work from our 4 bedroom pet-friendly house, just minutes from Black Mountain and Asheville.

We are non-smoking "dog people" with decades of pet-care experience. We own a newly built home with a half acre of fenced yard for your dogs to play in.

A bored dog is a naughty dog, so don't leave your pup home alone to bark all day. Bring them here instead for the ultimate pet vacation.

During your dog's stay, he or she will enjoy playing fetch in the yard, hanging out with me on the large deck, adventure walks to nearby Owen Park to see the ducks, and walks around the neighborhood.

We have had several previous house sits/pet sits and can provide references. I've had many senior animals and can give oral medication.

We don't have kids. We recently said goodbye to our dear senior dog and we love having other animals around.

Our animal visitors get treated like our family...they are allowed on the furniture.

My schedule is extremely flexible and I will be home the entire time your pet is here. Your pet will have 100% supervision during their stay. I can give your pet plenty of attention, snuggles, walks, trips to the park and treats.

While your pets are being pampered, you will be able to enjoy yourself and explore all that gorgeous Asheville has to offer.

Request a reservation and we can schedule a complimentary meet and greet with your pet so you can be sure it's a good fit for all involved.

During the meet and greet, I will give you a tour of my house, answer all of your questions and give your pet a chance to sniff around...your pet will feel better about staying here if their first time is with you.

All services come with premium insurance a photo updates of your pet.

Sarah was great! We have a dog who was adopted that truly needs a little extra attention. She made sure Rosie was well taken care of! Sent us updates which were great! Needless to say she's gonna watch our babies when we take a cruise for 9 nights! Would highly recommend!!!
Maggie had a wonderful stay with Sarah! I'm so happy that I found such a great person to take care of our sweet little dog. Maggie had a great time and got lots of special attention. She enjoyed a nice walk in a nearby park on the first day and Sarah sent me several updates and pictures throughout the weekend. When I picked Maggie up, I could tell that she felt very much and home and had made great new friends. I will definitely have Sarah take care of Maggie again!
Lots of walks, a comfy sofa, calm surroundings, special treats and attention--who could ask for more! The daily photos and notes were a reassuring bonus. I would bring my dogs to Sarah again anytime!
Our dog, Lulu, had a great time with Sarah and her husband, Chad. They're obviously "dog people" who care about their four legged friends. They played with Lulu and took her for long walks. Sarah was professional and organized...she gave daily updates and sent pictures. We had peace of mind about Lulu while we were away and will not hesitate to ask Sarah and Chad to keep her again.
I feel that I was very fortunate to find Sarah and I am happy to recommend her to anybody visiting Ashville with their doggy. She was very quick to respond, very flexible and accomodating, easy to deal with and her house and nice big yard are dogs's paradise. We will definitely use Sarah's service again next time we visit Ashville with our three miniature poodles.
Caspian was very well taken care of
I can not say enough great things about our experience with Sarah and Chad. We were staying in Asheville for the weekend and their lovely home is 15 minutes outside Asheville, 2 miles off the highway. It was convenient to get to. Their house is a perfect setup for dogs with a huge fenced backyard with lots of grass and a open floor plan with gates to keep dogs safely in sight. I feel better knowing my dogs can't sneak off to get into trouble.

Sarah is extremely good at what she does. She responded to my request right away and answered all of my questions. She only keeps dogs from the same family at one time, and actually CALLED me to ask if it was OK if one of her regular small breed guests visited on Saturday, which of course was no problem. I just thought it was so sweet of her to check in.

She had a checklist once we arrived, asking about emergency contacts and microchips. I felt very safe leaving my dogs there, and my dogs loved her and LOVED the yard.

She kept in touch all weekend and sent adorable pictures. She took them on little walks and hikes, sending photos. I was so happy! The dogs might have had a better time than we did. And of course when we picked them up, they were happy and healthy.

I can't wait to use Sarah and Chad again. Highly highly recommend.
Overall a great experience and I would definitely recommend Sarah to others! She was really kind and accommodating to us and our pup and we would love to have her care for Lucy again sometime. Thanks Sarah!
Tyler had a great play day with Sarah and seemed to thrive on the attention he received. Her home is spacious and clean and the yard well maintained. Leaving him for the day allowed us to enjoy our vacation without rushing back to let out the puppy.
