About Norman

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm retired and live with my wife and 18 year old daughter. We're ALL animal lovers! We live outside the city limits of Alvin, on 3/4 of an acre - most of it in the huge fenced-in back yard. Plenty of room to run and play and a nice cool house to come into to cool off. We have a Sheltie and a dog-friendly cat, "Chester", who would LOVE to have some company. (He loves dogs as much as cats!) Only small 'house trained' dogs allowed. I'm home all day every day so your little one(s) will be cared for 24/7 while on his/her own vacation here! Your dog will be walked daily around our quiet neighborhood and be treated like part of the family. I'm also an aspiring Pet Photographer, so you may end up with some frame-worthy photos to take back home!

Normans doggie getaway.... Nothing but the best for our 2 sweet dogs..
Normans home is now our 'girls' second home!!! They love it there. Blessed to have Norman & his family caring for our 2 dogs....
Norman is the best. He loves our BB. He sends pics daily.
Everything was great. Norman loves our BB.
If our 2 girls Sophie & Maddie (Yorkie & Chihuahua) could talk, they would probably call Norman's home their 'home away from home'. Thats the best compliment I can think of. Thank you Norman and Family!!
Norman is great,he loves my dog.
Norman and his family are our 'girls'home away from home. We have no concerns when our dogs are with him... It's nice to have such comfort when we leave for vacations!! Thank you Norman!!
Our girls(dogs) love to stay with Norman... It's like their 2nd home. He keeps us posted daily with pictures and notes how their day is going.. I would never leave them at a kennel. Once they have stayed at Norman's that's it..they love him.
Norman went above and beyond our expectations! He was kind, patient and thoughtful with our Honey. What a great experience.
Norman and his wife were great. They love my BB. They even gave her a bath when she got into something in their backyard and they gave her a toy when hers broke! They cannot wait to see her again.
This was my boys first time with Norman and they enjoyed it. They were both relaxed at his home and did not beg to leave like they do when we visit my sons house. They had a lot of room to run and play.

I will leave them again if Norman will have them back.

Wow! Norman and his family were amazing, extremely knowlegable about dogs, and above all else very caring to our dogs. Our dogs could not have been at a better place. Norman treated our 'girls' so well we were afraid they might want to stay,!!
He sent us daily updates with pictures showing us how happy they were...great touch!
We will be back!!!

Norman, his wife, and daughter were the best. We felt very comfortable leaving our dog, Banjo, with them while we were traveling. They were very kind, professional, and flexible. Norman sent us daily photos and videos. His updates made our day.

Banjo seemed very content, and it was clear that she was receiving a lot of personalized care. We highly recommend Norman and his family. They will treat their "guests" with royalty and dignity, and your dogs will feel at home with their family.

The family is awesome!!
This is my 2nd pet that they have showered love to.
Lexi, my sheltie, gets the whole family experience; which includes a mom, dad, daughter, another dog and a cat. She gets walks, lots of hugs and play time inside and outside. They have a big fenced in yard and a big enough house that she runs nonstop.
They first took care of Lexi when she was 9 weeks old. They were my daycare sitters. Thank you Norman and Marian for loving my child while I am away!!! My pup has grown into a healthy, happy adult sheltie!!!
