About Tinker

26 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
My wife and I have been caring for dogs and other pets for years.
We have a small quiet home just outside of Nashua surrounded by Hollis farmland.
Our house is equipped with customized pet safety gates that close automatically to keep our dogs from getting into trouble (toilets and trash cans). We also have a couple of spare rooms rooms should anybody need a time-out or just prefer their own personal space.
Either my wife and/or myself are always here with our dogs. Both of our hounds were rescued from unique situations. Abby, our Basset Hound lost her loving and doting owner abruptly to disease and needs special attention at all times or she gets very depressed. Our Beagle Lucy, is a miraculous survival story that was found alone in the woods 14 years ago having been there for an unknown (6 months - 2 years) amount of time. She not only recovered from her traumatic experience but she has far surpassed everybody's expectations and is now enjoying her golden + years.
Our girls unique needs have made our home the ideal place to entertain your fuzzy friends and family members. We can most likely accommodate and meet just about any specific needs they might have. Big and wimpy, little and bossy, young and peppy or old and lazy, we welcome everyone that needs a comfy place to relax.
While they will likely miss their people, they won't have to be at all alone or lonely while they await your return.

Tinker was very easy to worjk with for drop off and pick up times. Our dog seemed to really enjoy the time spent there and getting picture updates during vacation was a nice touch. Would use Tinker again
Tinker T. and his wife are THE BEST!!!! I'm sort of a worrier by nature, and after chatting with Tinker and dropping my 2 dogs off at their house, I didn't worry for a minute of my long weekend away. (As soon as I saw the house, I knew I was in the right place!) ~ It was clear they love animals and would take excellent care of my little ones (actually not so little; one is 30 lbs, the other is 50 lbs). My pups are family, and I vetted out a good number of sitters before choosing Tinker. I have a son and as I would make sure I had the absolute best place for him, I made sure to have the absolute best sitters for my pups.
Tinker and his wife kept in touch with me throughout the weekend and sent pictures. Nice!! AND after I picked them up, when I was about half-way home, I noticed that the pup who was sitting on my lap smelled delightfully fresh (I'm quite sure she didn't smell delightful at all when I dropped her off!). They'd bathed my dogs!!
I know my sweet puppies had a wonderful time, and I would HIGHLY recommend Tinker to anyone looking for a home-away-from-home for their loved animals!! I just can't say enough good about them! I hope I have another opportunity to travel soon. Tinker would be my first call! Thank you Tinker - best to you and your wife, and to all the lucky pets who get to stay with you!!
