This is a wonderful place to leave our dog. It's sort of like summer camp. Pia has 4 dogs of her own and sometimes has another guest canine. There's a large fenced in yard and easy access to the house for every body. It's in a wooded, rural area. All the humans are very friendly and caring ,especially their young son Jack! If you live anywhere around the Batesville area it's a great place to leave your dog for a safe and fun vacation stay.

Pia and her family were wonderful!!! Really helped me out the day my extended family planned a winery tour in the area. Could tell Bosco had a great time!!
Pia was great, very responsive and very kind to our dogs! We are grateful!
Pia was beyond wonderful watching our two dogs (German Shepherd and Pomeranian). She was extremely responsive, sent regular updates, and was very accomodating. She watched them for 4 days, and took them to/ from our wedding without a hiccup. If I could give her even more stars, I would. Would recommend her to anyone who needs a sitter, and couldn't be happier with the experience.

Our pups had a great time with Pia, her husband, and their pack! They had an awesome fenced yard for our big dog to run around and play in and our little dog got plenty of cuddles. Pia was very accommodating to our schedule and in a great location to where we were camping at the park, which made it so much easier to see some sights without our pups for the day. I would highly recommend Pia and her family, and we look forward to having our pups stay with them again if we go back to the area!

Pia and her family welcomed Henri as their own. She sent me several notes, photos, and videos over the course of the days and confirmed for me that he was having a great time. Lovely outdoor setting and a clean and happy indoor situation that a visiting dog has full run of! Henri wants to go back, I can tell :)

Pia is wonderful! She boarded our 8 month old Labradoodle, Henry, for a week while we were out of town. It was our first time leaving him and we we couldn't be happier with how well he was cared for. Pia is a lovely person and a genuine dog lover. She has a large fenced yard, a designated dog room, and was very considerate in introducing Henry to her own friendly dogs. She sent text messages regularly to keep us informed as to what and how he was doing. Henry had a blast running and playing with the other dogs as well as spending time with Pia and her family.
We will recommend Pia to friends and neighbors as a dog boarder and walker and will certainly be repeat customers!
