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, 14-year-old Tobey, a sweet miniature poodle who came to live with me a year ago. (Brewster, who is in my profile pic, crossed over the rainbow bridge. He is dearly missed!) My sister and Coco (9-year old Chihuahua) are staying with me right now.

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 15 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!

Nancy is excellent, whenever we need a sitter for our maltese, we contact Nancy because it's just like leaving him with a family member. Lots of love and care!
Nancy was wonderful with our two dogs. She sent us updates daily and both were sad to leave when we picked them up. We will use Nancy for our future vacations.
This is my second dog vacay with Nancy. She is absolutely wonderful. So friendly and takes such great care of Ozzy. Pictures and videos throughout the day which is wonderful to see. She definitely treats Ozzy as her own dog, even got him a Christmas gift which was so sweet. Her dog Tobey is so sweet and is Ozzy's little buddy.

Nancy is the best and I would definitely suggest using her for your dogs.

Thank you Nancy :)
