Date: 2011-10-08, 10:44AM EDT Reply to: We are an animal-loving retired couple. We take care of dogs by the day: offering playtime and loving attention while you're at work. We also board dogs overnight if you'll be out of town. We charge $15 per day and an extra $5 for each overnight stay if your pet remains for the night. We have a large backyard with a privacy fence. We are mostly home all day and love having the extra animal visitors. We have 2 dogs of our own who are very used to visiting playmates, although we do not board more than 2 extra dogs at a time. We wish to keep a family atmosphere where each dog gets plenty of supervision and TLC. We have an Angie's List rating of A. Please call (or email). Our phone number is 614-766-0383. Dog Owner Comments: 1. Our retired service dog did beautifully with the Purtzes. She is old and doesn't usually adapt too well. But she was made to feel welcome & loved. We would go back in a heartbeat.   2. I met the Purtzes and knew immediately that they were dog lovers!  They have two of their own and my dog quickly felt right at home, even though she was a bit tentative about me leaving.  This was the longest my dog and I have ever been apart (she is only a year old) and I wasn't sure how she would do.  But when I met Deb and Fritz, they were so pleasant and seemed very loving toward my little one. They allow the dogs to roam free in the house and play with toys (or Deb and Fritz!). There is also a fenced backyard for them to go out and play or  do their "business".  The yard looked well maintained and clean, too. My dog needed to have medicine given to her as well, and the Purtzes had no problem with that and actually had experience giving meds to their own dogs.  This eased my mind tremendously! When Deb asked what I do at night for bedtime, I told her that my dog usually sleeps with me, but she could stay in her cage, too. But Deb smiled and said that she enjoys having them sleep with her, too! I thought to myself...Gracie (my dog), is going to feel right at home here!!!! Deb also sent me a couple of pictures while I was gone and welcomed my phone calls to check up on Gracie. I also thought the price was well worth the love and care my little one received. We (Gracie and I) had a great experience at the Purtzes and will definitely call on them again! 3. The Purtz's watched my Newfoundland from Friday afternoon until Monday morning. They fed him twice a day and let him outside to go to the bathroom as needed. He was scheduled to only be there until Sunday evening but I was running behind schedule and my dog was able to stay another night. I paid them for the 3 nights but they weren't going to charge me for it. They helped me out of a giant pickle and at the very least, I would have called it a tip. My dog felt very comfortable in their home and I don't think he wanted to come home with me because he would be by himself and he loves having dogs to play with. I would absolutely recommend their services. 4. I left my dog to be taken care of as we went out of town - 5 days total. The Purtzes did very well . Responded promptly over email several times. Very nice people. Very nice house. 5. Deb and Fritz Purtz took care of my dog for a week while I was on a trip. Prior to the time of my trip I took my dog over to meet the Purtzes and their two dogs. The dogs were outside while Deb and Fritz met my dog and let him sniff around the house. We then took my dog to the fenced in backyard to meet their dogs - they got along and everything was fine. I felt very comfortable taking my dog to the Purtz home.  They made him part of the family and gave him the love and attention that he needed. This experience is so much better than taking your dog to a kennel.  When I picked my dog up he was glad to see me but I really do think he was a little sad to leave the Purtz home.  I will use Canine Comfort whenever I travel and am thinking about taking my dog over a couple of days a week before work and picking him up after work just to give him some play time and exercise. They only charge $15.00 a day (cheaper than any other dog watching company I researched). I highly recommend Canine Comfort for watching dogs either on a regular basis or for travel. it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
