About Polly

37 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Beautiful country setting with lots of room to run and play within fenced acre and half. Inside, Individual rooms available if separation needed or enjoy the house with my lab and me. My life is here with my dogs and yours. I am pet CPR and first aid certified, and am currently working on becoming a certified dog trainer. I am a certified dog trainer, and I work hard to make sure guest dogs transition as smoothly as possible.

I have a three-bedroom home that I have almost completely renovated. I have two bedrooms upstairs for dogs who are used to sleeping upstairs, and a large living room downstairs with a guest bed for dogs who are used to sleeping in a bed. My bedroom is downstairs, and dogs can sleep where they want. During the day, the dogs will spend lots of time outside with me. I love sitting outside with the dogs and throwing balls and frisbees. I never leave my dog outside alone, even though I have a 6' privacy fence surrounding my property and security cameras, outside and in the house. If I am outside or on an errand, I can always see how your dog is doing. :)

This is a great place for doggy daycare as well as overnight care. :) Many behavioral issues are the result of dogs that do not get enough exercise while their owners work. Why not set up a regular daycare schedule, and watch those behaviors disappear when your dog comes home exhausted from playing outside for hours? Do you have a behavioral issue? Let me give you a custom quote on daycare with training or overnight care with training? Have you aways wanted to teach your dog to navigate an agility course? Course on site spring 2017 for training your dog, or even better, training you to train your dog? Course also available for rental for agility practice. Ask for a custom quote!

I am a certified dog trainer, and I do clicker training. (Fear Free Dog Training) Discount rate for training while boarding. Ask about a custom quote to work on obedience or behavioral issues. Agility course and training in spring of 2017!

I have bred, raised, and trained labrador retrievers and cared for dogs since I was a child, and I have a wonderful vet just down the street in a facility open seven days a week. If you have two dogs, ask me for a custom quote. I do not take dogs from different homes at the same time, but I will take two from the same home.

I do not take dogs with serious health issues, incontinence, or severe mobility issues. I will administer oral medications supplements.

Certified in Canine CPR and first aid.

Polly is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to the care and well-being of her pets. she has a knack for getting to know and understand each pet's unique personality. All of her animals are healthy, happy, and well-adjusted. Her big, fenced in yard is secure and perfect for playing!

Polly was excellent. She returned messages quickly, she allowed me to visit with my dog before leaving her for the first time, and most importantly, she took excellent care of my puppy. Great yard to play in and I could tell my dog was enjoying her stay by the pictures and messsges Polly sent me. Polly genuinely love dogs and that was quite apparent. Certainly would use her again to board my dog. :)

Polly was wonderful with my "girls". We scheduled a last minute trip and was not able to schedule a meet and greet prior to leaving. Polly had a wonderful, large yard for the dogs to roam freely in.
My girls were happy and tired upon pick up. Will definitely rebook!!!!

Polly was a great match for our Sydney. We loved the picture updates everyday. Her care for animals is evident and Blondie was a perfect hostess, too. Sydney was happy to see us when we got home, but maybe not as happy as we expected - another sign she felt welcome and cared for with Polly. We definitely recommend Polly to anyone looking for dog care and will absolutely use her again.

Nice big yard to run in. Will use her services again.
Our experience with Polly was excellent. She has a enormous fenced in yard and her lab Blondie was the perfect playmate for our lab. Polly sent us updates and pictures frequently, which I loved. She clearly loves animals and was very welcoming and warm to Logan. Logan has such a great time, he didn't want to leave when we came to pick him up! We will certainly use Polly again.

I'm so delighted to have found Polly! She really loves animals and honestly enjoyed having Sammy as a guest. He and her lab Blondie became friends. Sam is skittish and quite sensitive, and she made him feel right at home. He is slow to warm up to people. He was happy to see me when I came to get him, but went over to Polly and gave her a couple of snuggles to thank her and say good-bye.
I am booking her for a longer trip I will take next month, because I feel that he will be very well taken care of.
