Jackie works weekdays, and her life happily revolves around giving the best care to her fur-kids, Rambo (Shih Tzu) and Chrissy (Pug cross), including daily walks, indoor play sessions, healthy food and treats, too many toys, outings, visits, playgroup, and events at The Little Dog House.
Jackie has a dog-safe home with a fenced backyard for her guests to enjoy. She loves getting to know each dog as the individuals that they are, and is pleased as punch at all the joyful greetings she gets when her guests return for additional stays.
Tracy is semi-retired which gives her lots of free time to spend with her best friend, Kymba,
a 5 year old West Highland Terrier. Tracy is a motorcycle enthusiast, and even has a safe seat
for Kymba on the back of her bike. Don't worry – Tracy's bike is only built for 2,
so no sleepover dogs will be going on a joy ride!
Tracy's daily ritual also includes walks, lots of play, training (Kymba has a repertoire of tricks)
and visits with friends, including nannie Jackie, Rambo & Chrissy. Tracy's home is dog-safe, complete with gates and MANY toys and puzzles. Tracy feeds high end, healthy – mostly gluten free – treats to Kymba and her friends. Tracy & Kymba are a great fit for higher energy dogs
who will enjoy Kymba's boundless energy, and Tracy's enthusiasm.
Lisa and her husband Greg share their River Heights home with 2 yorkies – "The Balboas" – Rocky & Adrian and their cat Deeva.
Lisa is an expert on supervising dogs play – and she really enjoys encouraging good interactions and building their confidence as they learn to play with others.
Lisa runs a drop-in winter playgroup at The Little Dog House (Best Furry Friends Playgroup) and has a home business making healthy, super-food dog treats and supplements (Best Furry Friends Bakery).
Rick is in the Canadian Air Force, and Karen is in security. Their off-time revolves around their dogs Griffin (Brussels Griffon-Papillion cross) and Tess (Boston Terrier - Poodle cross). Griffin is easy going, loves to run and play. Tess is a bundle of energy, loves to fetch, and run like the wind.
In addition to providing sleepover care, the McLeods have also provided longer term foster care for dogs in rescue. Both their dogs are very sociable having benefited from being members of playgroup, having sleepover guests, and foster dogs staying over. With a large, dog-friendly space, daily walks, fully fenced backyard with a paddle pool and tunnels to play in, this is a fun and fantastic place to stay.
The thing they love best about dog sitting is watching the interactions and play, getting to know each dog's personality, and witnessing how quickly their guests come to feel at home and become another member of the family.
