I'm a FULL TIME Pet Care Provider in my clean & smoke free home .My home for Dog Boarding, or Your Home for Home Visits. I also offer Pet Pickups/DropOffs to Dog Boarding, Doggy Appts & Back Home. Other Services - Dog Walking, & Dog Baths Services.

I've taken care of a wide variety of Dogs, Cats, Fish, Turtles, Rodents, Farm Animals & Exotic Birds. I can truly say that since a very young age, I have always loved and learned to respect all types of pets.

My husband has prior experience as a law enforcement dog handler and is available after work for extra cuddles & assistance.

Our family pets are the fun loving Rescue Pets Fix-It a Rat Terrier & Augie a Min Pin, they love doggy kisses.

I live in a two story brick house with a nice shady front yard /fully fenced back yard with lots of plants, flowering bushes to smell & hide in.

The neighborhood in which I live is very relaxing during the day & well-lit and safe at night for walks. I'll play with your pups in the yard, or indoors.
I'll take your dog to one of the two great parks near my home for walks on the walking trails & lots of grass and shaded trees. I adjust walking times based on the weather for the comfort of your pets included in boarding for those pups that like to walk.

On hot days we spend more time outdoors early mornings & evenings to avoid dogs getting over heated & offer sprinkler games & soaking pools outdoors & a/c, with fans indoors.

Fall/Winter play time outdoors games, walks lots of indoor games in our warm house & protected fireplace. To keep those little paws toasty.

We request your dogs be fully house trained, to go potty outside unless their puppies and please bring puppy pads, diapers or male/female wraps.

Please bring proof of up to date pet rabies tags, vaccinations/flea treatment records or take a quick photo with cell phone and send to Tia. We do have a flea and tick free house.

For your pets safety we would like your pet to have a collar & id tags.

Meals - I will feed your dogs the pet foods/snacks you provide (to avoid sensitive tummies). I separate dogs when feeding ,for dogs with food allergies, special diets & food aggression.

Bed Time - Your dog can sleep in the doggy beds, pads, or crate/doggy cage you provide. I have extra doggy beds, pads, & 6 doggy cages available for use .

Time Spent With Dogs (Boarding)--
We take at least 2 walks in evenings/mornings weather permitting included in boarding. We give lots of individual playtime throughout the day from Tia & family supervised. I offer plenty of toys for all sizes of dogs & two small doggy pools for splash time.

Dog Safety- I attach pet safety lights to the dog boarders collars so their easily visible at night and for safety on our walks .
Indoor gates are placed near 3 separate entry ways for those pups that are runners. 1 Gate at bottom of stairs to avoid pup falls. We have a lock on the backyard gate for your dogs safety and an in home security system/cameras for the protection of all dogs day or night.

Dog Training- I offer potty bells by back door for those pups that are trained to use bells to communicate that they need to go outside.
