About Howie

4 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a retired couple in our 50's who love dogs. We take one dog at a time (unless there is more than one dog in a family) and treat them as family. They go on plenty of walks and are given full run of the house. There is usually at least one person at home while your pet is here. We are glad to give references. We are The Dog Sitters giving love and attention to one dog at a time. During the Christmas/New Years Holiday (December 15, 2016 through January 3, 2017 my rates are $33.00 for the first dog and $16.00 for the second dog.

My dogs had a great stay with Howie and Betsy. They are definitely dog lovers and I felt very happy to know that they were in such good hands. Howie was very quick with responding to messages and very flexible with arranging the meet and greet and drop off and pick up times. Highly recommended!

Our senior dog Sammy used to be boarded at a commercial facility, but he hated it. Hanging out at Howie's is so much easier for him. He likes the home setting and seemed particularly attached to Howie's wife, Betsy. We already have reservations for future vacays!

Howie communicated well with us all during the process and we really appreciate that he only takes one dog at a time. Nutmeg came home happy so we are too!
Howie was great! Very easy going and you can tell that he really loves dogs, Hendrix had a great time and settled in quickly. I will definitely use again for my pups.
Howie and his wife did an excellent job taking care of our 5 month old puppy. Would definitely use them again!
Thanks for taking such good care of my dog Millie!
Another great stay for our dog. This was the second time we left our dog with Howie, and already booked him for another week in June!
The minute my dog walked in the front door, I felt comfortable leaving him with Howie and his wife. They kept me up informed on how he was doing, and sent a picture of him relaxing with them. I had to stay a way an extra day and they were very understanding and accommodating. I will definitely be using them again.

Fantastic! Of all the sitters we've tried Howie is far and above our favorite. Our dog thrives on companionship and can easily become lonely. But when we picked him up we could instantly tell he'd had plenty of cuddles, frequent walks and was well taken care of.

First of all, our pup seemed very comfortable with Howie and Betsy and made himself at home right away. Howie and Betsy seem to genuinely enjoy taking care of dogs and were very willing to care for our dog just how we take care of our dog at home. They sent pictures & updates, took our pup on many walks, and welcomed him back any time!
