About Itzbeth & Keith

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hello! We love all dogs, especially the well-behaved type!! Our place has a big backyard and we live very close to Sligo Creek Park for some long walks and outdoor activity. I work from home most days, so I can often do mid-day walks too, but if I do go out for work, then my husband is usually home by 3pm to take the dogs out.

We have a mini-dachshund (Lula) she "gets along with" (read: ignores) other dogs, and she mostly keeps to herself and her naps (she's 10 years old) which would be ideal for dogs that are a bit shy, she won't be all up in their face, and she appreciates reciprocity.

We would love to care for your dog when you travel and will send you lots of photo updates! We are good at keeping our calendar up to date, so please check there first to see if our dates match. If it says we are not available, it is because we are not available.

Please request a meet and greet before placing your reservation, we will want to meet you and your dog before we agree to watch them, this will be good for your peace of mind too!

Please note that we only accept fully housebroken dogs and we are not trained to deal with dogs with behavioral or separation issues, but we are super happy to snuggle with and give lots of love to your pup during our down time! And sorry, no puppies, except for dachshund puppies in crates! :-)

Itzbeth and Keith did a great job taking care of Percy for 3 days while we were away. We got a ton of adorable pictures and he was happy as a clam when we returned. We would definitely use them again.
Itzbeth and Keith are amazing! They were incredibly kind and accommodating with my dog, and with my very last minute need to find someone to take care of her. I received daily photos and updates of my dog, and they kept me up to date on all of their adventures. I was so thrilled with the care that my dog received with them. I look forward to being able to work with Itzbeth and Keith again.

This was our dog's first visit with Itzbeth and Keith and it went extremely well. I felt so comfortable leaving my dog there and received lovely texts and photos of her throughout the day, reassuring me that she was happy. When I picked her up she was super calm, and had clearly had a nice day.

Biscuit really enjoyed visiting Itzbeth, Keith and Lula again. Itzbeth sent some great pictures of the pups relaxing by the fireplace. We really appreciate their flexibility and being able to count on them to care care of Biscuit.
Our dogs Atlas and Luna had an excellent 5-night stay with Itzbeth and Keith and their pup Lula. I couldn't have asked for better communication from a host throughout the entire process, from scheduling a meet-and-greet, to booking the stay, to receiving picture updates throughout the entire vacation. They looked like they were having a great time! I really appreciated that Itzbeth and Keith took the time to ask about our dogs' personalities and likes/dislikes before the stay so they could be sure to accommodate them. When we picked them up, Atlas and Luna were both happy, well cared-for, and very comfortable in Itzbeth and Keith's home. We will definitely be booking with Itzbeth and Keith again!

My dog Stella has stayed with Itzbeth, Keith, and Lula several times. She has a terrific time and is very well cared for. Itzbeth and Keith are great communicators and check in with photos and updates during Stella's stays. She gets lots of belly rubs, walks, and gets to chase her ball a bunch.

Scheduling has been easy, and both Stella and I couldn't be happier that she's found such a trustworthy second home when I have to travel.

Itzbeth and Keith were great! They are both very nice and were were flexible about pickup and dropoff. Biscuit had a great stay and Itzbeth sent us cute pictures of him everyday. They will be on the top of my list of pet sitters next time we go out of town.

My dog Basil had a great time with Keith and Itzbeth! Their dog was the sweetest little thing and they got along great together. I got frequent texts and pictures to let me know that he was doing ok. They were also pretty flexible with pick up and drop off times. I would definitely use them again!

Keith and Itzbeth are AMAZING hosts! My dog MJ felt right at home immediately and throughout the stay I received picture and text updates :)

I would recommend them to anyone who needs help with a sitter and am glad I have a trusted home for MJ when I go out of town.

Thanks again!

Itzbeth was a fantastic and gracious host for Shiloh, even with my last minute booking because of a work trip. Highly recommend!!!
Crinkle had her usual wonderful vacay with Lula, Itzbeth, and Keith! Everything was seamless and easy as always. Thanks!
As always, Crinkle thoroughly enjoyed her vacay with Itzbeth, Keith, and Lula. When I dropped her off, she was wagging her tail and seemed genuinely excited to be back! I know she is in great hands, which makes me feel totally comfortable leaving her when I go out of town.

Crinkle's vacay with Itzbeth & family was great. This was her third stay with them -- clearly we are repeat guests for a reason! As always, Itzbeth was flexible in pick-up and drop-off times, and sent many photo updates. In the photos Crinkle looked content and not at all anxious (which she can sometimes be when I leave). I'm pretty sure she wants to stay at Itzbeth's forever. I feel a lot more comfortable in my travels knowing Crinkle is safe, relaxed, and happy.

Itzbeth was super responsive. She took care of my beagle while the dog was recovering from surgery and everything went smoothly. She texted me during the day to let me know how she was doing. Her dog is also very friendly. I would recommend her!
Itzbeth, Keith, and Lula took really good care of my pug Brody over a 4 day stay over. Brody is used to having someone at home most of the time since I work from home. It was great that Itzbeth does the same and has a dog of her own so Brody had someone his size to hang out with. I very much appreciated the regular texts and picture updates that Itzbeth sent me. I could tell Brody was well taken care of and loved while I was away. I will definitely be using Itzbeth's help again and would recommend her to anyone else considering it.

Our dog Zoey is always sad to be left out of our family fun, but Itzbeth took great care to cheer her up! Zoey got along well with the resident dog, and definitely enjoyed her daily walks. We appreciated the daily pictures and updates, and were very comfortable with the whole experience. Great choice for your doggie vacay!

Crinkle's second stay with Itzbeth and family was just as great as the first! She returned happy, calm, and in good spirits. It was clear she was very well taken care of (again)! Will definitely continue to send Crinkle to Itzbeth's when I travel in the future.

Crinkle had a fantastic vacay with Itzbeth, Keith and Lula! We had a meet-n-greet first to ensure Crinkle and Lula got along, which was easy to coordinate. I got tons of photo updates of the two dachshund friends together during my 9-day trip. Although Crinkle sometimes has separation anxiety, she settled right in and was totally comfortable in her temporary home. They were flexible with dropoff/pickup, attentive with her needs and quirks, and gave her tons of belly rubs, too! Overall I can't say enough good things. Thank you!
