About Assata

42 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Dogs are my passion. I enjoy making new doggie friends, as much as my doggie does. Your pet will quickly understand our home is her/his to explore and enjoy. Contact me for a meet and greet.

Please ask me any questions to your comfort. You will receive true answers, which I would want if I were 'you' dropping off my beloved furry friends. I'm very picky about my pet and I hope you are too.

I am the Leader of the pack and enjoy being connected in the world of doggies.

I offer behavior training, therefore I understand the individual personalities of your pets. They can be so much like humans.

Caring for your pets, is too much fun.

I have worked as a volunteer 'veterinarian technician' at a local animal rescue clinic; trained, pet-sit, rescued and cared for injured dogs around the world (Asia, Africa and Europe) as well, at home in the USA.

Assata was wonderful with our two dogs. She took very good care of them while we were on vacation and sent us pictures and text messages everyday to keep us updated. Overall it was a great experience!
Assata treated my Jax with the utmost love and care. I would gladly book her for another reservation in the future.
Our dogs really loved Assata, and she is great to work with!
Assata was so accommodating and our dogs really love her! Would definitely recommend her to watch your doggies!
Assata and Naija are fabulous hosts! Assata is obviously passionate for animals, professional, and and extremely responsible -- we trusted her implicitly with the health, safety, and comfort of our Benji. Our pup has stayed with Assata a couple times now and always come home happy, relaxed, healthy, and better behaved than when we dropped him off. Benji can be a bit of a handful and Assata cared for him beautifully. She even let him sleep in bed with her! Five gold stars!

We had a great experience leaving our pup with Assata. She was accommodating when our schedule got blown up and really seems to care about the dogs in her charge. Also, the emphasis on a cage free,family style environment was very appealing to us.
After we picked up our boy she shared some of the work involving community gardening in the area and, because of my partner's work in food security, going to check those spots was one of the most memorable parts of our trip.
Thanks, Assata.

LOVE Assata and her pack. I've used her boarding service before and I'll definitely use her again.
Very positive experience. Our dog Hector enjoyed his short visit while we went to a Detroit Tigers game while traveling through the area. He got some exercise and played with other dogs. House and yard were clean and neat.
I booked this reservation for my Grandfather's 2 miniature pinschers and he was beyond happy with Assata's service. He told me right away, after he met Assata, that he was very satisfied with her and her facilities. She picked up and returned the dogs before and after the booking-which is very useful for my Granddad. He loved seeing pictures of his "baby girls," and I thought they always looked very happy on their walks and napping. She kept a good, and professional, eye on them. For example, she sent me an e-mail when she felt she detected a health issue with one of the dogs, and my Grandfather and I were very appreciative that she went the extra mile.

Overall, I would definitely suggest Assata to dog owners who like a personal touch when it comes to their dog sitting.

Assata has been everything you could ever want and need from a pet sitter. No one will make you feel more calm that your pet is in good hands. Updates and pictures throughout my pet's stay, helped me stay extremely comfortable. Her training methods are nothing less than excellent as you will see if you meet her pets. I will definitely bring my pet back for boarding and sitting.

I could not have been happier with Assata. She took care of my Stella like she was her own. Stella came back healthy, happy, and had better manners :) You can tell within minutes of meeting Assata how much passion and respect she has for dogs. Stella loved her time there and was treated wonderfully. I would recommend her to everyone and will for sure be using her again.You can rest so easy knowing your furry friend is in the best hands! Thanks Assata!

Assata was an AMAZING host for Jax. Jax had previously been going to a larger dog boarding place but the energy level was much too high for him. Assets believes in giving the dogs a healthy amount of exercise and quiet time. She even sent lots of updates and pictures.

Jax came home happy, healthy, and he even seems a little less shy than before. Naija, Assata's resident dog, is a sweetie too. They really got along well. I would definitely recommend Assata.

Assata took amazing care of my 3-year-old black lab mix over the holidays, sending regular updates and making sure he was treated as part of the family. Assata clearly adores dogs and knows what she is doing. Alfie came back confident, healthy and happy.

Assata is a fantastic caretaker. My 5 month old lab was very happy with his stay. As a new puppy parent, it was difficult to part ways with my little one, but Assata kept me updated with regular reports and pictures of him the entire time I was away. She provides all dogs in her care with socialization and behavior training, plenty of exercise, strong leadership, and lots of love. I highly recommend her!

Assata was such a wonderful host, She treated my dog Jack just like he was one of her own! And I could tell immediately that she had a lot of experience with dogs, she has that balance of being confident and firm while being sweet and caring. I felt so comfortable leaving him with her, and I know Jack had the best time during his stay!
