About Sara

7 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello and welcome!

My partner David and I have been dog owners for 7 years, and I have loved dogs all my life! I enjoyed caring for my friends' pets growing up, and have volunteered at the humane society on and off throughout the years.

Currently, we have our own wonderful pup, Effie, a 4.5 year old Malamute/Shepherd mix. She is a big girl who loves to run and play before settling down for a good cuddle on the couch. Effie has proven to be great with other dogs around, acting as a sort of peacekeeper and ensuring that everyone plays nice with gentle authority. Even so, we prefer to do a meet and greet before boarding at your convenience. We just recently lost our other sweet fluffball, so Effie has really been enjoying making new friends.

We own a lovely single-story house in east Boulder with a large dog door and a nice fenced yard. The dog door exits from the kitchen, which we can close off from the rest of the house with a baby gate, and we also have a spare medium crate, so we are prepared for many situations. If your dog has any special needs, just let us know and we may be able to accommodate. We even have a nice big tub with a hose, so I'd be happy to give your doggy a refreshing bath while they're here! We live near some lovely paths next to the creek for walks and runs, and the Valmont dog park is less than 5 minutes away. I work from home, so your furry friend will receive lots of attention and cuddles throughout their stay!

We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

Sara and Effie can always be trusted to take great care of our pup while we're away! Sara sends photo updates, makes sure he's active, and her yard provides a great place for running around.
My partner and I were very nervous to leave our puppy Felex for the first time but Sara made it all better! Knowing Sara's love for dogs I was confident that my puppy will get the extra attention and affection that he needed being away from us for the first time, and he did. However, Sara went above and beyond even that and took care also of my partner's and my separation anxiety. :) Every day she sent us updates and pictures of Felex and her dog happily playing, hiking and having great old time. What could be better?! Sara is awesome, seek no further for a perfect doggy sitter.

Sara was wonderful! Murphy had a great time. He loved the walks and the run. We enjoyed the pictures and the updates. We would definitely book with Sara again.
Cricket loved her stay with Sara and returned home at the end of each of her play dates, relaxed. Sara was super friendly and easily adapted to our drop off an collection times. Cricket played for three day time visits while construction workers were in our home. Sara took us at the last minute and again, added a final day, in the final hour. Thanks Sara. So glad you were available. We can't wait to play again soon!

First visit went great!
Sara is absolutely the BEST!

Our 9-month old lab mix stayed with Sara recently for a week while we were out of town and we could not have been more pleased! Sara is simply awesome! She took incredible care of Kona, taking her on daily jogs, playing with her, and providing us with daily photos and updates of how Kona was doing and what they did that day (HUGE bonus!! Thank you!).

We feel like Sara treated Kona as her own. She was very careful in how Kona was introduced both to Effie (Sara's beautiful dog) and other guests -to make sure that it went smoothly and help them all have a good experience. Kona was also able to bring and sleep in her own kennel, eat her own food, and have her favorite toys with her, too. As a result, Kona clearly was able to settle in quickly and had a great time.

We will *absolutely* book Kona to stay with Sara next time (every time) that we go out of town!

Gemma ( 6-month old Great Dane puppy) had a WONDERFUL time with Sara and her dog, Effie! Sara sent pictures and updates through out the day so I could see what they were doing and how they got along. Gemma got to play with other dogs and go for a jog and even play in the creek. She had a blast! Can't wait for her to go back and make more friends ;)

Sara was an amazing host!
She was SUPER prompt and responsive and flexible and helpful with my pick up and drop off requests. It was our first time away from our dog Lily, and she made us feel very comfortable. Lily had a great time playing with her (adorable) pup, and got to go on a lot of walks and runs which she also loves! We will definitely love to opportunity to have Sara help us again!

Mac's stay with Sara was great. She sent me a picture to show he had settled down and was a happy boy. Thank you for keeping him happy, safe and comfortable for the day.
This was a HUGE improvement over boarding! Sara is very communicative and accommodating, and Effie is a very sweet dog. Instead of feeling guilty for leaving my pup with them, I can tell that it was more of a treat. I will definitely book with Sara again.

Sara was wonderful to deal with--very responsive and organized. She updated me on how the dogs were doing. I could tell both dogs had a great time and enjoyed lots of exercise and attention.
Sara was a wonderful host! She sent me pictures and updates of my dogs when we were away. Her dog, Effie, is a sweetheart and my dogs loved making a new friend. There house is perfect for dogs: fenced backyard, doggie door, large living room with dog beds. It was an overwhelming positive and stress free experience. I will definitely trust Sara to take care of my fur babies again for our next vacation!

Sara and her adorable dog, Effie, took such fantastic care of my pooch. Sent me several photos and updates, and took her on runs with her and let her swim. I will definitely let Portia stay with her again when I next travel.
Portia came back home a happy and content pup.
Thank you Sara!
