About sara

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Welcome to the canine cozy shack!

Ever since i was a little girl, animals have been my life. I have always had large breed dogs, from my first rottweiller at younger than age 5. I have never been without a dog. I pupsit full time and i am certified in cpr/first aid. I worked at a doggy day care for three years, and quit for certain reasons. My yard is large and fully fenced with a 6ft fence. They all get fed by themselves and have free access outside all the time. Between myself and my mother, pups are always surrounded with love and affection. Daily activities include play time with other pups in the large yard, a pup pool for all the four-legged swimmers. Pet store trips and walks are also part of a weekly routine if allowed by the parent. All the dogs sleep in my room, either in a doggy bed or in my bed at night. Never any crates.

Sara was wonderful as I had expected after our meeting and greet awhile. She was dog approved as well approved by us. These are our babies and would not just let anyone care for them.

As soon as we were on our way she was texting us pics and updates to put our mind at ease.

She could even get them to watch animal planet which we can't because they are constantly barking at the TV. Sara is my dog whisperer.

I am so happy we found someone to watch them and we can go out and not worry. I know they are in the best care.
Sara took care of our 3 dogs (one required insulin) in our home. She was great! She kept me updated throughout the day with texts and pictures. We came home to happy, well taken care of dogs. We will definitely ask Sara to dog sit again!
Sara was great! She sent pictures every day, and took good care of things at home. She picked up after the dogs - and cleaned the cat box, brought in the mail, and everything was orderly when we got home.
First time having our two terriers stay with Sara. She appreciated their energy and antics, and sent many pictures throughout the stay. Great fenced in back yard and lots of toys to play with. I recommend Sara!
Libby had a great stay with Sara and didn't want to leave when we came to pick her up. It was great to get pictures and know that she was well taken care of while we were gone!
This was Rosie's first stay with Sarah and her dogs. I feel like Rosie had a vacation herself, where she was pampered, entertained and looked after as a welcome guest. We had a very nice meet and greet prior to the stay and Sara showed me her house and large fenced in backyard that was perfect for doggy play. Sara was very kind and friendly. She was very detailed and interested in all the information about Rosie prior to the stay - emergency numbers, eating habits, etc. Every day we received tons of pictures and updates from which it was clear that Rosie was having a great time. She came home happy and tired from playing. Rosie will definitely be staying with Sara again and I will happily recommend her to other dog parents.
Sara relieved all of our concerns about leaving our two pups! She sent so many pictures and gave many updates so that we felt not only secure that the dogs were well, but also thrilled that they were enjoying themselves! Thanks Sara!
Sara is just terrific!!!! Our dog had more fun with her than she ever does with us :) Will definitely be using her again. Sara stayed at our house to watch our aging dog, and it was just great to have our aging dog keep her routine while getting lots of attention. Sara is the best!
Sara is the best; I am jealous of the fun my dog has with her and the pups she watches!
We were very pleased with Sara. She sent us pictures of our Sammy throughout the day. It appeared that Sammy was content and that made us happy and able to relax. We definitely will ask Sara again to watch Sammy.
Great experience. Thank you
Babe was very happy staying with Sara and her doggie companions. She was happily exhausted when we picked her up, from all the play she got to have. Babe loves other dogs and doesn't always get the chance to spend so much time with pups except for a dog park visit. We got so many pics of Babe, it was great.
Sara was very quick when responding for reservations. Not only was she willing to meet my dog before the actual weekend we were going away, but it was very reassuring about how comfortable she was with dogs. Throughout my dog's stay I was updated frequently with texts, photos, and videos which made me more comfortable leaving my pup with someone else. I would highly recommend Sara for anyone who is going away for a long period of time or even for day care.
