We are Lauren and Wouter - a newly-married young couple living in South Knoxville who love dogs. Wouter is originally from South Africa, and is currently a PhD student in nuclear engineering at UT who works from home, so your dog will have nearly 24/7 attention and care. Lauren is originally from Colorado and works in advertising at a local agency. We have always grown up with dogs and currently have two -- Copper (2 yr old catahoula) and Max (9 yr old border collie) -- who would love another playmate. We take them to Sequoyah Hills park or on a short hike at Ijams Nature Center, House Mtn, or another nearby trail everyday, and your pup can join! We also provide plenty of potty breaks throughout the day.
Our house is on an acre and has plenty of room for pups to play. Dogs are welcome to make themselves at home and sleep wherever they are most comfortable (crate, floor, sofa, dog bed, etc.). Our home is all natural -- we do not use dangerous chemicals or cleaners, and we only serve high-quality organic treats.
We're used to administering medication (Max has epilepsy and needs a daily pill himself), and are also used to dealing with senior doggie issues (although we do have one flight of stairs to get up, so keep that in mind).
**If you have any questions before booking, please let us know!** Note that our calendar may sometimes show that we are booked, when we actually could have availability later in the day, depending on when doggies are coming and going. If you have any questions about our schedule, don't hesitate to get in touch!
