Tiger just stayed with Heidi for a 3rd visit, this time for an extended 2 weeks! Even though I was out of the country, Heidi provided me with multiple updates throughout the day. I was confident that Tiger was in good hands and certainly not missing me in the least!
Heidi has been nothing short of a godsend. I travel often for work and feel incredibly guilty about leaving my 7 yr old super emotional Great Dane behind. Heidi has welcomed my pup in to her home as one of her own, and for the first time I can travel without being concerned about how depressed Dakota is. I think she's actually disappointed when I return home and she leave's Heidi's care!

If you're lucky enough to be one of Heidi's clients, your pet will be in professional, loving care.
Heidi and Hershey were awesome! Tiger had a great time, and Heidi sent me multiple updates throughout the weekend via text of Tiger's activities. She was extremely accommodating when I was delayed picking her up as well - we both couldn't be happier!
Once again Heidi did a fantastic job with our dog. She must match our puppy's energy level because our almost 3 year old comes home happy and tuckered out!
I don't know who is happier with Heidi, me or Daisy. They are so welcoming and loving. I can tell Daisy is really happy and taken care of when she is there. She gets along with Hershey and is welcomed as one of their own. Thank you!
I have an elderly dog with numerous challenges and was hoping to find a host who could offer and attentive, caring, quiet environment. Heidi offered all that and more! She is highly skilled, knowledgeable and super kind and supportive of both pet and owner; as a host, she was a true God Send!! She treated my dog to a great week and kept us in the loop by texting numerous photos. I am so thankful for her and highly recommend her!
Hedi was an excellent host for our dog Nick! Hedi was very knowledgeable with the many dog breeds and their behavior. Nick was well taken care off and had plenty of play time and walks. Thank you for taking excellent care of our boy Nick
Wonderful service, great response time, sent happy updated photos! Heidi has a beautiful personality. Highly recommended!
Heidi is incredibly friendly. I loved meeting her and felt very comfortable leaving my dog with her while I was on vacation. She sent me emails, text messages and pictures of my dog everyday. She was definitely taking great care of my dog. I highly recommend her and I will be going to her again in the future.
Heidi has a real understanding of dogs and what makes them happy. She has a professional background working with dogs and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable leaving Pluto in her capable hands, sending me photos throughout the day:) Pluto enjoyed having two very gentle bigger dogs to play with as well! There is also a great park right down the street for dog-walking and Heidi made sure Pluto got his exercise. You will get extra care and sensitivity to your dog's needs at Heidi's home.
Upon first meeting Heidi with our dog, I immediately felt comfortable and knew she was going to be a great fit. Then, the weekend before her stay, our dog got injured and I wasn't sure about leaving her behind. I contacted Heidi about the incident and asked how she felt about the responsibility of an injured dog. Her confident response assured me she was completely capable and I was so relieved. Heidi took many pictures and sent text updates as to how our dog was getting along with everyone. I paid for the extra exercise and it was well worth it. From park walks to mountain bike trails - our dog hardly had a chance to miss us! We were overall VERY pleased with our experience with Heidi. If repeat stays are any indication, we will definitely be using Heidi again when we need to leave our beloved family member behind.
Heidi took great care of my little guy. She sent several pictures a day to me showing all the activities she was treating him to. She was also very flexible to the times I needed to pick him up and drop him off. Thanks for taking such great care of him!
Heidi and Oliver were just fantastic!!

They took care of our dog last minute over the holiday and were so accommodating with our crazy schedule. They told us about all they did together, and sent us pictures of her throughout her stay. We will definitely be booking with them again!!

We loved how attentive they were to our pup, and how much love they showed her! She seemed so comfortable when we picked her up.

We know she loved it!! and loved Heidi and Oliver!
