About Nancy

35 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
For most of us, we consider dogs a part of the family, and I'm particularly partial to our SENIOR family members. When we have to travel without them, there's nothing worse than worrying about how they're doing and if they're comfortable. Let your dog stay with me and he or she can take advantage of

• a large, totally secure fenced-in yard with doggie-door access
• a dog-friendly, single level, quiet home
• delicious homemade dog treats
• and, of course, lots of cuddles and kisses

I'm now retired, so I can be home 24/7 with your dog to make sure he's comfortable and feels loved. Families with more than one dog are welcome. I live alone in a quiet neighborhood, with my newest adoption, 13-year-old Tobey. A sweet miniature poodle who is still settling in. (Brewster, who is in my profile pic, crossed over the rainbow bridge. He is dearly missed!) My sister and Coco (8-year old Chihuahua) are staying with me for awhile.

WHAT I'D LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT A DOG BEFORE SITTING THEM:
For me, the most important aspect of a dog visitor's personality is to make sure he is dog-friendly and not aggressive. I have no breed preference, but right now we are more suited to older and/or sedate dogs. I no longer have the strength to handle a strong energetic dog. A meet and greet is the best way to see if we're a good fit for each other.

MY HISTORY WITH DOGS:
I've had dogs for the past 30 years. I volunteered some years ago at Save-a-Pet, which is where I first saw the extra need for seniors to find a home, too.

For the past 13 years I've dedicated myself to adopting older hard to place dogs that need a loving home. As a result, I've had years of dealing with seniors, who often come to me with pre-existing medical issues. With seniors, you're adopting automatic heartbreak. I do, however, love trying to make their last years good ones, which they so deserve!

We always feel comfortable leaving our girl with Nancy because we know that she is cared for with attention and affection. Daily photos - often a couple a day - with narrative keep us informed of her daily activities. Daily walks, belly rubs and home-made dog biscuits - who could ask for more?? We feel very lucky to have found a pet caregiver as good as Nancy.

Nancy is great! Her love of all dogs is apparent and treats each as if they are her own!
Nancy always receives 5 stars and I wish I could give her more! Our Italian Greyhound has stayed with Nancy many times and I would not leave him with anyone else. She loves him as much as we do and takes excellent care of him. He can't wait to go back!! Thank you Nancy!!

Does a great job
My dog is happy after his stay
Nancy is the best. We are repeat clients of Nancy and could not be happier. The care she gives our little maltese is great. We were able to take a family reunion trip for over ten nights overseas and knew our little guy was being well cared for and loved.

Nancy is a fantastic home away from home for my dogs. They have been there several times and are always excited to get there to play with Nancy and her sweet dog Toby. Nancy takes care of my babies like they are her own. It's clear she loves dogs. They are allowed to sleep whereever they like, and she has toys and beds throughout the house for them. I received pictures of my dogs every day of their vacation so I got to see how happy and content they were. Best of all, Nancy's house has a fenced back yard for the dogs to explore and even a doggy door! Feel confident leaving your pup with Nancy,they couldn't be in better hands!

Nancy is fantastic. We have two dogs and she treats them like little kids. She has tons of toys and a wonderful fenced in back yard. She kept in touch with us all weekend. This was our second time using Nancy and we will continue to use her in the future. You won't be disappointed! Cindy

This was our dog's first time with Nancy. I felt very comfortable with Nancy from the start during our meet and greet. I love that she does not take in large dogs and keeps her fluffy visitors to a small group. I know my dog received a lot of attention and love while she was there for the 8 days. Nancy also took care of our dogs ear medication and cleanings while she was there. I would definitely book with Nancy for future visits.

I feel like I won the host lottery in finding Nancy. She is so kind, friendly and genuine and a true dog lover. Her home is warm and inviting and I was so comfortable leaving Pumpkin with her. She took such good care of my pup, even cleaning her ears. I received constant updates and photos and I couldn't have been happier. I am so grateful that I found Nancy! Now I can plan my next vacation without any concerns.

Our dog Coleman has stayed with Nancy many times now and I would not even consider sending him anywhere else. Nancy is a true dog lover and treats our little guy like he is one of her own. Coleman looks forward to seeing Nancy and is always SO excited when he sees her. 5 stars is not enough, Nancy deserves 10!!

Nancy is great. She is organized, responsive and most importantly treats your dog like family with lots of love and attention. She watched our little maltese for the first time and we knew he was in good hands. She made sure that he was happy and comfortable. Nancy sent updates, pics, and really tuned in to his needs right a way. If that's not enough, Tobey, Nancy's dog, is so sweet and acted like a host too; greeting us and looking after our little one too. Nancy truly cares and loves dogs.

Nancy was awesome. She sent a ton of pictures during our 5 day trip. It meant a lot to see them and know he was doing great. Her dogs were very sweet and seemed like Ozzy had a great time with them. Would definitely recommend and will book next time with Nancy.

Thanks so much

This was our Dogs first stay with Nancy. She took wonderful care of her and our dog looked very happy! I loved getting pictures and texts from her throughout her stay. Nancy genuinely seemed to enjoy all the dogs she was watching and even gave them all Christmas presents! I definitely would recommend Nancy and plan to call her in the future!

A stay with Nancy is a vacation for Cleo! Nancy is very patient with Cleo, who likes to sniff just about every blade of grass on her walks. She loves Nancy's yard also and learned how to use the doggie door. Nancy is great and I highly recommend her as a kind and loving pet sitter.

My dogs had a wonderful experience at Nancy's house! Lots of loving attention, a huge selection of dog toys, an awesome fenced in yard, and even a doggie door! Nancy went above and beyond, sending me text messages and pictures of my dogs during their stay, and even sent them home with a goodie bag of homemade dog treats. I was very impressed with the fact that Nancy even put tags on my dogs collars with her contact information to wear while they were at her house. I will definitely take my dogs to Nancy's again!

Nancy was amazing! Our dog, Bentley, was with her for several days. She would send text pictures and updates daily. You could just tell he was enjoying himself. She has a beautiful backyard that he had access to at any time. She took him for walks and he loved to sit in her front porch window. We will use Nancy again to take care of our dog! Cindy

We cannot say enough about Nancy and the amazing job she did with our dog, Coleman. You can tell immediately that she is a TRUE dog lover and our Italian greyhound sensed that immediately and it helped put him at ease. Nancy sent pictures of our little guy throughout the days we were gone along with updates on how he was doing and how well he ate which reassured us tremendously. He loved Nancy so much that when we arrived for pick up, he seemed to want to stay longer! As dog owners that love their pet so dearly, this is truly what you want! She even makes homemade dog treats for the dogs (which Coleman loved!) and even sent a bag of treats home with us. She's amazing and we will DEFINITELY use her from now on and will surely recommend her to others!

We had the most marvelous host, Nancy C, for our puppy Twinkles. Nancy is a kind, lovely, responsible and dog loving hostess. Each day that Nancy babysat for our dog, she sent multiple photos accompanied by detailed texts of how our furry "child" was doing. When we picked up Twinkles after staying with Nancy, he was very happy and content. I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone who wants a dedicated and intelligent doggy babysitter.

Cleo enjoyed her stay with Nancy! She was able to explore the back yard at her leisure - sniffing under every plant and into every corner. Nancy also took Cleo for walks every day and was very patient as Cleo likes to stop frequently to put her nose to the ground and investigate new scents.
