Grinning Pup Dog Boarding Service

About Us

Kate retired at 54 from working as an OR nurse. Alita retired from her work in quality assurance for a software company.

Both of us love dogs, and need to have them in our lives. We've been walking and boarding dogs for a national pet care company for exercise and fun, and we decided we didn't need the middle man to find us customers, because we're pretty good at what we do.

We believe in the positive reinforcement school of dog communication - we don't believe in speaking sharply to them unless they're in danger.

We let dogs be lap dogs, even if they weigh a hundred pounds; they can often be found on the human beds in our house at night. We love to walk, especially in East Bay Regional Parks; sharing that experience with a dog is heaven for us.

We're basically two grandmas who will spoil your dog while you have to be at work or away from home. You will have a grinning pup when you come home.

  • We're experienced . . .
  • We're insured . . .
  • We're hopelessly responsible . . .
  • And we love dogs of all shapes, sizes and dispositions . . .
