About Petra

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I live in Columbia and l would love to take care of your dog while you are away! I love having dogs around me...they are the best companions. I also understand how difficult it is when you have to leave them for a little while (going to work) or for a longer while (vacation). This is where I come in. I am a trustworthy, experienced and caring dog lover, and your dog will have a safe, loving and fun stay at my house.

My husband and I live in a great neighborhood with many walking paths and parks. We have a safe fenced-in backyard and our house is smoke free, cleaned with non-toxic products, and no pesticides ever applied to our yard.

We have a small rescue dog named Willie. Willie is very friendly and enjoys doggie company. He is very good at adjusting to the needs of doggie guests - he plays with dogs that enjoy playing, but if a dog is older or just wants to relax - he immediately understands. He has very good "doggy manners." :)

I also understand the challenges of older and special needs dogs, since I cared for a diabetic dog, and a blind dog for many years. So please be assured that if you have a geriatric or a dog with health issues that they will be well taken care of. Do not worry! I can provide veterinary references upon request.

We are home during the day and will provide plenty of attention, love, daily walks, playtime, naps and cuddles. I guarantee that your fur kid will have a wonderful and safe time under my watch! I send frequent updates and pictures while you are away so you will always know how things are going and be assured that your dog is content and happy!

Note:
-- Meet-and-greet required prior to any boarding.
-- Dog sizes accepted: up to 15 pounds.

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you :-)

We can't say enough nice things about Petra. She was very accommodating to a couple time last minute drop up and pick off times on our part; kept us informed about our dog Sailor with videos and photos and even took her out for walks. I felt us informed about our dog Sailor with videos and photos and even took her out for walks. I felt immediately comfortable when I met Petra as she was obviously hands on and her roomy home and backyard was a bonus for our dog vacay!! Our pet came back to us so happy and calm that we can't wait for her to have a staycation soon.

She is fantastic. She sent pictures and videos. She is very accommodating and made us feel good to leave our baby. We have booked several more visits with her
Petra was able to take our little dog with pretty short notice on New Year's Eve, which we really appreciated. I loved seeing the pictures she sent. Holly got along well with her dog and I wouldn't hesitate to use her again,
