There's Someplace Like Home
Dog Sitting and Dog
If you're a busy professional who loves your pet, you're bound to have
experienced that feeling of panic - - an unexpected business meeting or
much needed vacation looms, and your favorite pet needs expert care.

Many years ago, I dropped my pet off for boarding on the way to the airport.
Much to my chagrin, when I toured her 'home' for the next seven days I
found rows of small cages in a windowless room. I'm not sure who was
more traumatized, my furry friend or me. The feeling of guilt was enormous.
I knew there had to be a better, more pet friendly boarding experience

Now you don't have to worry,
There's Someplace Like Home Dog Sitting
and Dog Daycare
is at your service.

Experienced Care for Your Pet:
I was raised in the country on a thriving farm and have lived with animals
my entire life. I began dog sitting several years ago and have been in love
with it ever since.

Safe Surroundings with Room to Explore:
Your dog will be lovingly cared for in my pet
safe, centrally heated, air conditioned
bungalow which features a 6' cedar fenced
yard near Lake Harriet. My home offers
a quiet, loving retreat for your pet.  There are
no children present.

I work from my home and will provide
your pet with all the attention he or she needs
throughout the day. Your dog will be walked
2-3 times a day through my quiet neighbor-
hood. There's also constant, supervised
access to my fenced yard - - the perfect
location for exploration, play and relaxation.

You Won't Miss a Thing
NEW! You won't miss a moment of your pet's life while you're out of town.
All 'Pet Parents' receive a

away? I'd be happy to email you a photo of your pet during your business
trip or vacation.
