About Stef

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I have been dog sitting for over 20 years! I recently moved to Knoxville TN and work at UT with VERY close proximity to my condo. I am 1/2 mile from the dog park and the Worlds Fair Park is right next to my condo. I love taking dogs on long walks, hiking at Ijams Nature Center, and will guarantee they will have a wonderful time.

Cuddling with the pups and making sure they are spoiled is guaranteed! I like to text photos throughout the day of your dog ...I'm only accepting dogs that are housebroken and don't exhibit separation anxiety. Only well behaved pups please.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and your doggie! Happy tails to you!

I can't say enough great things about Stef! She took great care of our Sadie as if she were her own. Though our dog has medical conditions, Stef was very diligent in making sure her needs were met. My husband and I were kept up to date with text and pictures of Sadie while we were away. No matter the health level of your pet, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stef to take care of your kid with paws!
We are repeat clients with Stef and love the attention she gives to Bodhi. He is only 6 months old, so he's still a handful, but we could tell he loved every second of his time there. Thank you, Stef!
We would give Stef more stars if we could! From the first "meet and greet" we had it's obvious she loves dogs and takes great care of them. Our bulldog is just a year old and can be a handful but she did a great job! She sent us updates with photos twice a day, which was very nice for us. Looking forward to booking Stef again!
Cooper had a great time. He got to live it up for a couple of days with walks in the park, meeting new dog and human friends. He seemed reluctant to go home. Stef B. did a wonderful job making my senior retired racing greyhound feel comfortable away from home. Cooper would love to go back for a visit and I know she would do a great job again.
Stef was very friendly and Bodhi seemed to have a great time. Would definitely make reservations here again.
Stef was absolutely wonderful with our two pups! We decided at the last minute to go see family and Stef was able to take them in. She was so wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend her to watch your pets. Our pups were definitely well taken care of!!
Stef was great! We have only been living in Knoxville a month, and I was very hesitant about just any pet day care centers because our beloved pet is 12 years old now. But Stef was grea, our boy took to her right away and didn't seem at all nervous wit her. He's experienced anxiety in the past but Stef took him for a nice walk right away and in all the pictures I could tell he was quite comfortable! I will definitely be reserving another dog vacay, with her as my top choice!
I travel a lot and unfortunately have had to use a lot of different dog sitters. I couldn't be happier with Stef. Not only is she clearly a true dog lover (and dogs can tell) but she's also very responsible, enthusiastic and responsive. I felt very at ease knowing that my little guy was with her. Stef is my first choice when I need to find someone to take care of my Bacchus for me. She stayed in my home which I appreciated so my dog could maintain his same routine. Thanks!
Steph was great to work with. She answered my questions quickly, and we enjoyed meeting her for a meet and greet before Charley came to stay. She sent us pictures and updates about Charley's weekend, and Charley was happy and well taken care of while we were away.
Zekes weekend with Steph was great. She is very easy to get in touch with about pick up and drop offs. I loved receiving all the picture updates.
Stef was a great and understanding host! I made a last minute reservation for a friend before traveling out of town. She met us outside upon arrival with her other four legged guest of the weekend. The fenced backyard of the apartment and patio is sufficient for the dogs to stretch their legs a bit. She sent photo updates during the stay to keep our minds at ease. Sky and Fluffy seemed to enjoy themselves. If we are ever back in the area and need a host, Stef will be our first call.
Stef is very easy to deal with. It was clear that Lanta had a GREAT time with her. Would highly recommend.
I couldn't have asked for a better person to leave Opie with. Stef was very accommodating and Opie loved her. It was nice getting updates throughout his stay of how he was doing since it was his first time away. I would highly recommend Stef to anyone looking for someone to watch their loved ones.
Stef was a wonderful host! She provided many updates of the activities her and Yoda enjoyed. Yoda was smiling in the pictures forwarded as well as relaxing in her favorite position. I appreciate Stef love given to Yoda :)!
Could not wait 24 hours for a response. Stef called me within the hour and was able to take Zeus that night! While I was gone she sent me pictures of their activities and kept me in the loop about how he was doing while I was away. Won't hesitate to call her again!!
