About Colleen

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

If you have a high energy hound or maybe a pup that could lose a few pounds, our retreat is the place for you. I have two very in shape dogs of my own to prove it.

I am a Boston Marathon runner and have over 7 years of experience running with not only my dogs, but dogs I have taken care of over the years...therefore, references available. :)

Let me describe a day in your pup's life when they stay in our house:

Wake up at 7:00 a.m. and go for a run
Rest in our cozy living room with our two very sweet and accommodating dogs
At 12:00 I will come home from work (My office is only two miles away) and we will go on a lunch run in the woods (woods pictured in our photos)
Rest some more :)
At 2:30 my 13 year old will be home to love on and walk our furry visitor
At 6:00 there is another optional short run
20 to 30 minute night walk around our neighborhood

At bedtime, your pup can either sleep in my bed with me or in a crate or wherever he/she/you me, after all this activity your pooch will sleep well!

Callie loved her stay with Colleen! She got so much exercise and was able to enjoy plenty of off-leash fun. Colleen kept us well informed throughout her stay. We would highly recommend Colleen!
Colleen and her family were awesome! Our dog enjoyed plenty of daily exercise and enjoyed the company of the family dog (definitively a plus!). Colleen sent us several pictures and videos which was always nice. We highly recommend Colleen.
Waffles had the best time with Colleen and her dogs! He's a 1.5 year old, super energetic black labrador and we got him back, calm and well-exercised. Thanks again! Will definitely use Colleen again!
My Jack had the time of his life! He's found his home away from home!!
Colleen was awesome! She kept me updated with messages and pictures throughout my pup's stay. He loved his time there so much he didn't want to come home! Would recommend anytime!
Colleen treated our dog as one of her own. Can't say enough great things about her.
The entire experience with Colleen was topnotch. The attention to detail and overall care that Colleen gave to Kumee left me assurred that he was being taken good care of in a warm family setting. Would def look Colleen up again.
Melvin had a great time with Colleen! He loved playing with her dogs, going for runs & playing in the park! He will definitely visit her again!!!
She was excellent with the dogs, and kept us well updated through text messages and photos. I never had to wonder how they were doing, or worry. I would give her 6 stars if I could.
