About Polly

45 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Rest assured, your beloved family member will be cared for with love, affection, and treated like a member of my family. I'm retired, pet-free, and miss my dog love! Positive reinforcement and never giving your dog an opportunity to fail is my mantra. We will enjoy snuggle time, play time, and activity time.

My home has two levels...the main floor is wood and tile, and the basement living space is carpeted. Your buddy is allowed on either floor. If I need to leave your baby home alone, I have a small wire crate for dogs up to about 25 pounds. If your sweetheart is larger, please plan to bring an appropriately sized crate so I can prevent behavior failures. If your dog is never destructive, no crate is required.

My beautiful, shady yard is partially fenced, and your dog will be allowed to enjoy it in a manner that matches her/his training level. If s/he is recall trained, we can be outside off-lead with your permission; if not, s/he will be on a lead or a long tether. S/he will never be left unsupervised outdoors.

Polly was amazing with our little girl. Athena is at times a neurotic doggy but Polly was wonderful with her and took her on many walks (which we got pictures of!). Polly is sweet and inviting and we felt comfortable with her right away as did our often defensive/shy pup. We will be using Polly again for sure!

Polly watched my small dog at my house for seven days. This included lots of walks (since there is no fence) and she kept me updated by texting pics. She was professional, went above and beyond and ,most importantly, I was able to enjoy my vacation because I knew my dog was OK.

Polly is a very warm, calm energy person who connected with our pup right away. Her home is exactly as the pictures show - light filled, clutter free, nothing around to tempt a dog to misbehave. We were kept updated with pictures and texts. Bitsy got as many walks as she wanted and was treated like a princess.
We thought we might need to significantly change our pick-up time (by 4-5 hours!) and Polly was understanding and willing to accommodate the change.
I think we will check with Polly from now on before we plan to leave town to make sure she is available.

We met Polly today for the first time and she cared for our dog, Luca, all day while we visited my mother in Denver. She immediately bonded with Luca as well as with us. She met and exceeded all our expectations and we felt very comfortable leaving her in our home with our pride and joy! We will recommend her to our friends who also search for a trust-worthy adult to care for their pets. She communicated through-out the day and sent photo's of their walk in the neighborhood, Luca taking his nap, etc. Thanks for the great service.
