About Russ & Karen

25 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We welcome your pet(s) into our home.

Your animal(s) will be cared for in a non-smoking, NO crate environment without high risk of contracting illness AND it provides a playmate for our dog. Best of both worlds!

Your animal(s) will feel safe, loved and have a lot of fun with us. Our home has a huge yard where there is a lot of room to run, play tag, or just sniff around. Our front yard has a cattle guard (most animals won't cross over) and is located 2/10's mile from the main road .We use pet friendly pest control products both inside and outsid and is free from toxic plants. So come check us out!

Our dog Sage is a gentle giant so if you have small animals, they will be safe around her.

Note: Although we enjoy all breeds, our home owners insurance will not allow us to care for Rottweilers, Dobermans or Pitbulls.

Russ and Karen were like B&B for dogs.
Despite being us being a 49ers household, Russ (Seahawks fan) & Karen boarded Ginny as we moved our daughter to college. Their house is beautifully nestled between farmlands and woods, with a large fenced backyard. The yard was perfect for friends and,Sage (their dog) to roam and venture. We received several picture after we got home - mostly because the DogVacay app did not work as intended. We (and Ginny) look foward to the next trip, knowing Ginny will be in good hands.
Russ, Karen have a large fenced in yard and a good set up inside their home for the dogs. Sage is very friendly and playful, and I am sure she kept my dog entertained.
We were delighted to find such a friendly couple with a homestead that is perfectly suited to taking care of dogs! Our dog seemed to get along quite well with their dog in the very large, dog-friendly fenced yard. Karen & Russ were kind enough to send lots of photos of our dog, including both dogs playing happily together. This helped provide a stress-free experience. They were very kind on the back end, as well, when we picked up our pup.
