About Heather

2 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are an active couple in our mid 30's with no children and one awesome dog named Rusty. I work 0.5 miles away from home so I can return home throughout the day to let the pups out or take them for a walk. They will never be alone for more than 4 hours. Our doggy clients have ranged from a high-energy 6 month old Shepard mix, to a 15 year old Sheltie, so we have lots of experience with all types of dogs. We are very responsible and caring, and excited to host your pet!

We have a cape cod type house with a medium-sized, fenced yard. The yard is not huge, but big enough for them to run around and get some exercise. Our house is in a nice, safe neighborhood.

This was Baylie's first stay anywhere other then family. Thank you Heather, you really made me feel like she was in hands. I loved that you sent pictures and touched base with me to let me know how she was doing. She was very happy when I picked her up and she looked like she enjoyed her stay. We look forward to staying with you in the future..
This was our second time leaving Crash, 2yo german shorthaired pointer, with Heather and everything went perfect. Rusty and Crash got along great from the begining. Heather sent pictures throughout our overnight. Best of all, after we picked Crash up, our over active pup slept for 12+ hours. It was absolutely wonderful!
Heather and Keith are the BEST

We feel so comfortable leaving our dog with them that they're better than family. Paco has a terrific time with them. They are friendly, flexible and just a delight to deal with.

Thanks for every time you help us!
You're wonderful
#USE HEATHER M !!! You won't be sorry
Holly is so happy with Heather and Rusty. The dogs get along well together and it was obvious when I picked up Holly that she had been well cared for and had enjoyed herself
Heather, Keith and Rusty were awesome hosts to Cooper! Cooper enjoyed playing and chasing his buddy, Rusty.
Heather was so kind to send me pictures of Cooper during his vacay with them. My husband and I felt safe to leave him with this lovely couple and their sweet Rusty and knew he would have fun. We will definitely contact them next time we plan another weekend trip.
Paco had a great stay and we were sent pictures of our happy pup daily. He loves staying here. :-)
Cookie came home very happy and healthy from his stay with Heather and Keith. He enjoyed his time playing with their dog. Heather kept in touch while we were away texting pictures so we knew he was in good hands and could relax and enjoy vacation. Thank you!
Heather, her husband Keith, and their dog Rusty are all wonderful! Our dog Lola gets along great with Rusty. They run and play and cuddle together. Heather sends daily pictures which we really appreciate. They always make sure Lola gets plenty of exercise and she always comes home happy and tired!
Heather was great, the daily pictures of Mr. Belvedere having a blast were fantastic - and made our vacation worry free!

Plus Mr. B. made a great new friend and had a romping good time. He came back well fed, well played, and happy. What more could I ask for? I'd suggest Heather to anyone else who needed a place to put their dog (or rambunctious puppy) for a time.
I felt safe leaving Tin with Heather and her pup. She came home tired. I got lots of picture updates and they responded promptly when I reached out to them during Tin's stay at their house.
This was the first time our 10 year old Lab Roxy stayed with anyone other than a family member. Heather, Keith and Rusty were perfect hosts. Heather was very prompt about her responses and sent several pictures to assure us that Roxy had settled in. Their mixed breed Rusty couldn't have been any sweeter and shared his surroundings willingly. We were busy with our daughter's wedding so our dog stayed 3 days. Knowing she was content eased our stress and allowed us to enjoy our special occasion. We will certainly look to use them again.
Heather and her husband Keith did an awesome job with my puppy Louie. He came home happy and exhausted after playing with their dog Rusty! I would definitely recommended Heather and would use her again in the future! Thanks again!! Great job.
