About Suchitra

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Doggies have an in-home play room where they can play with their toys or with each other, sit on the sofa and relax, have their meals or use the doggie door to go outside into the fenced backyard to do their business or scare off dastardly squirrels.

Doggies go for hikes on trails that are off-leash and can run and work off that energy so that they are tired doggies at the end of the day. Doggies can also socialize with other doggies at dog parks. Dogs must be dog friendly and have good recall in order to enjoy off leash privileges. For doggies who are not suited to either off-leash runs or dog parks, a leashed walk may be more appropriate. Please indicate if you prefer off leash activities or if you would like leashed walks.

I only take on one client at a time for the safety of all dogs involved. Since the resident pets are tested for dog tolerance and ability to share their space with a guest dog, you can rest assured that your dog will not feel over-whelmed. Your dog will receive 100 percent of my attention during his or her stay with me. By the same token, I do expect candor in your description of your dog and disclosure of any behavioral issues your dog might have. If I know what the challenges are, I can be prepared and avoid any mishaps, either to your dog or myself.

I can work with you, the pet parent, in addressing certain behaviors that you might want to change in your dog. I have expertise in rehabilitating dogs that have experienced abuse, neglect or emotional shut down.

Doggies are given lots of belly rubs, if desired. Doggies are supervised during play and are expected to be respectful of other doggies' needs.

Our mission is to bring out the puppy in your dog!
Happy Tails and Happy Trails!

Cheers,
Suchitra, Calisto, Raven & Jazz

Suchitra was wonderful taking Spencer at the last minute. She has a great place for dogs to play and sleep. She took very good care of Spencer giving us updates and pictures. We felt very comfortable leaving him with her.
Suchitra was very flexible with my schedule, which was very helpful since I was rushing out the door for my vacation. My dog adored her and opened up to her right away. She is very attentive to all the pets in her home and I never worried about my dog while in her care. I really like that she only takes one dog at a time, which was important for me since I have a big dog. Most places I have taken my dog in the past have had multiple (over 5) dogs, which was not a good environment for my dog. I very highly recommend Suchitra.

Joe loved staying with Suchitra! As we all know, it's very important that both you and your pet get a good feeling from the "new person" that you've just come in contact with and Joe and I got that feeling from Suchitra. While we were away she sent photos daily and it was obvious that Joe was having a great time and being well cared for and that allowed my Husband and I to relax and enjoy our mini vacation. Now that we have someone WONDERFUL to take care of our pet, we will be getting away more often. Thank you Suchitra for taking such good care of our beloved pet. Joe will be back real soon and we are happy that you enjoyed him too! You are a life saver! We love you!Woof, Woof!!
