about owner

A Michigan State grad, I landed my first job in Dallas and consider myself a true Texan! I've been a resident of Katy since 2005. I began fostering for Dachshund Rescue of Houston and not only became absolutely infatuated with this breed, I was feeling more passionate and fulfilled by the mission of dog rescue. This motivated me to take a year long course in dog obedience training and behavior modification. I worked alongside a certified trainer to gain the skills of temperament testing and learn the nuances of dog behavior and body language. There is something so rewarding about dog rescue and rehabilitation. It takes a lot of patience and a genuine love of dogs. I felt I could offer this same level of care to people's beloved pets, giving owners peace of mind while traveling. This lead me to find a unique niche in the pet care industry, cageless dog boarding. Properly socialized dogs thrive in this open environment with unlimited play time and the comforts of being in our home. Please call to arrange a tour of Lil' Ruffhouse!
