About Dorothy

60 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am retired and have many years teaching school and training dogs. I live in a condo and we do not have a fenced yard, but we take walks every two hours and have a large field right off my porch that we can play in on a long lead. We practice tricks, eat snacks and love taking naps, usually on my bed. My shelties love to have company and my cats are dog friendly. I am interested in boarding only one dog at a time so that they can have special attention. I have tile floors and disinfect them every other day and before visits. I am with the dogs "almost" 24/7. I do have a size limit of a maximum of 25 pounds.

You can watch a video of my dogs here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJTyY7R-uAE

All dogs MUST have an up to date veterinarian record showing that rabies vaccine, bronchitis vaccine, and distemper/Parvo vaccine are current. You will need to list what type flea/tick preventative you use and the most recent application. My dogs are registered therapy dogs and are required to be on heartworm and flea meds and my cats are treated bi monthly My unit is treated inside and out by both me and our HOA. Since dogs are walked outside, owners are responsible for their dog to be treated for parasites and communicable issues.

We welcome dogs that do not show aggressive behaviors. The purpose is to have fun.

Dorothy was so nice and took great care of my little Stevie. She sent pictures and communication was easy. I've already booked another stay with her.
Dorothy helped us out on a last minute request. She loves Pippa as much as we do, and the feeling is mutual! Pippa knows when we go by Earth Fare, that we are on our way to Dorothy's. Pippa starts talking big time and dancing all over the back seat. That makes me feel so good about leaving her! Thanks so much, Dorothy!

This was a longer time than usual that we leave our little girl. She had a great time with Dorothy and her lovey little guys. Pictures of Pippa were a daily occurrence and made us able to enjoy our vacay as Pippa was certainly enjoying hers!
I cannot recommend Dorothy highly enough!
