Greyhound Sitting - Fall Open Dates

Need Greyhound Sitting?

I have September - December dates available for Greyhound sitting.  Open dates begin after September 5th.  Reserve now for the holidays!
I provide:

- Safe environment
- Large fenced yard for play
- Quiet cul-de-sac location
- 18 years Greyhound/GPA experience
- 24/7 supervision
- Multiple walks each day
- Friendly neighborhood (neighbors LOVE the greys!)
...and best of all...
- Your pooch gets to hang out with Keith!

My only requirement is that you have a non-super-Alpha Greyhound.  Keith has just a tad of Alpha in him and doesn't like to be "pushed" around.
References available.

Interested?  Drop me an email for specifics and available dates:  or give me a call:  (541) 753-1339
