Geri with Sasha says:
Sasha loves to go to the fun farm and especially loves Jeff . Wonderful care for our special dog for the last 9 years sometimes for quite long visits. Thanks again to Monika!
Polly Rex says:
Our dog Shane could not have been better cared for while staying with Friends of Peanut. Like most dog lovers, we’re very particular about boarding our dog and are known to call off a vacation if the dog can’t accompany us or if a suitable option isn’t available. Friends of Peanut was just a wonderful experience, for both Shane and his parents. I can’t recommend it enough.
What could be better: a farm-like environment with a very loving couple, When my dog came home after 3 days, she acted like I was no one for a half day or so. She really must have had a grand time,
As a new owner I was nervous about leaving my beloved and shy pooch while away on vacation. I was relieved to find Friends of Peanut, my doggie got to stay in a nice warm home with all the amenities he would usually have would a few friends to place with as a bonus. He didn’t seem to notice I had left when I came to pick him up, he was having so much fun playing. I highly recommend bringing your doggie here. Monika was kind enough to text me and update me on how my dog was doing which allowed me to relax, he was in good hands!!
My doxie loves staying with Monika. She is amazing with animals. I know my dog is safe and in loving hands with Monika and Peanut.
Blake Birkeland says:
Monika is a great and loving pet sitter. I trust her to give loving care to my dog. She is affordable and caring about your pet. I would recommend her to everyone
Kathy and Patrick says:
Monika took great care of my dog Bailey while I was out of town visiting family. She communicated via text and on facebook so that I could keep in contact with Bailey even though I was so far away. I have used Friends of Peanuts twice now and I have been very pleased with how lovingly Monika cared for Bailey both times.
I’m glad I found Monica and Peanut! Monica was very nice and sweet with my schnauzer Lulu Margarita… It was the first time Lulu stayed at a different home and after i met her and peanut and all their happy and playful fuzzy friends i knew there wasnt better place than this for my baby. Monica was very caring in giving me constants updates while we were away… Her home is really dog friendly and they also have a lot of space… And the pet taxi service is a huge plus! Love it and def will use it again! Irene & Lulu
Judy Phillips says:
Our Simon, has spent four “vacations” with Peanut, Monika, and Jeff. Simon definitely looks forward to staying at this FANTASTIC “doggie hotel” and has “hotel” reservations for several more stays in the future. The cage-free set-up with the wonderful fenced-in yards is ideal. We are delighted that we found “Friends of Peanut” and would not consider boarding Simon anywhere else.
Monika is a very caring and thoughtful dog sitter. She always takes good care of our two pups and she will make time to sit them, even at the last minute, though we try to avoid that. They come home clean with no bugs attached. Very important. We love that she will watch them in her home as we know they are being let out or walked and have her attention. We love Monika and Peanut!
Howard and Merry Liff says:
Maggie (our Cairn Terrier) loves Monika and Peanut. Their home and grounds are immaculate. We travel a lot and know Maggie is well cared for.
Julie Powers says:
The ONLY place I would even think of leaving my two babies…I can go on vacation and relax knowing they are getting an exercise and fun-filled stay with Monika, Jeff and Peanut…the BEST!!!
Melanie & Mia says:
Monika took my little Mia in over Xmas this past year & we couldn’t have been more pleased. It was a last minute emergency request from me & even with a packed holiday house she gladly agreed to watch Mia. Monika, Jeff & Peanut’s house is your doggies Home Away from Home. The only down-side is that you might have a hard time getting your babies to leave. 😉
Anna Gregard says:
Monika is amazing with animals – from the first time she met my dogs, Sophie and Izabella, they fell in love with her – she is truly an “Animal Whisperer” – She is so nice and so helpful – When my dogs stay with her they have the best time and they look and feel absolutely great when I get them home again – I can feel so good going out of town while she is taking care of my babies, because I know that she does an excellent job and that I do not have to worry about anything – I am a veterinarian so I am very picky about who takes care of my babies – I would recommend Monika to anyone for pet sitting and pet services – She is the Best 🙂
Cynthia Clapp says:
Monika is fantastic! We always know our pets are in good hands and can rest easy when she takes care of them. She is also incredibly flexible and convenient. Our pets love spending time at her place and that makes us feel so much better when we have to be away 🙂
Edward and Debbie Benoff says:
Cleopatra (Beagle) and MooShu (Chinese Crested Hairless) are “on vacation” when visiting with Peanut and his friends. This was my second (and extended) stay at Peanut’s House. Monika had their nails clipped and washed and combed them out. We had had a house fire, and Monika to the rescue. This beautiful gal loves ALL the “kids” that visit. She and her husband have a special place in heaven (with their name on it) reserved for them (in a hundred years or more). Peanut’s mom treats ALL guests as if they were her own. There are no dangerous “packs in her house. ALL the animals seen to migrate into ONE family “Pack”. We love you Monika for letting us share our “alone” time, NOT having to worry about our Kids.. Ed and Debby
Kaili Williams says:
This is a great place to board your furry children while you are away. I left my Gizmo in Monika’s care, and I felt safe knowing she was provided with 24 hour care, lots of doggies to socialize with, and two yards to play in! Monika & Peanut are great pet hosts, and I would certainly leave my pup in their care again.
Charlie had a great time with the peanut gang. He never missed me!
Avi Ratica says:
I like that Peanut lives in a rural area and the property is set up for the Dogs to have fun in a safe manor.
Beth Cioffoletti says:
Rest assured that this is a wonderful place to leave your dog. Clean and dog-friendly, it is like a 2nd home to our Jubilee. Peanut is fun too!
Beth Janok says:
Excellent palce to leave your dog. I left 2 daschunds in Monika’s care for 5 days last Thanksgiving. It was their first time ever being away from home and I was very nervous on how they would adjust Monika sent me frequent texts on how they were, that they slept in the bed with her at night and posted several pictures of them on Peanut’s facebook page. Knowing that they were happy let me enjoy my trip Would highly recommend them and will difinitely use her in future when I go out of town
Manta and Trixie says:
Peanut´s home is the best place we have ever been! It is a real home and there is always somebody for us. We do not have to be in a cage and we could sleep on a couch.
Kathy Sommerhoff says:
Monika has a great house for dog sitting…it is very dog friendly and safe. She watched one of my dogs a few months ago and I already have her scheduled to watch my dogs again in the next few weeks.
Karin Valentine says:
I was concerned leaving my jack russell with peanut b/c he is a bully and does not like other dogs. I was pleasantly surprised that he did well and I got a progress report everyday. I would use again and highly recommend
Samina Rind says:
Friends of Peanut does a fantastic job of taking care of our ‘kids’. Monika, the owner, is trustworthy, reliable, professional, a pleasure to deal with and caring. The peace of mind she gives us is priceless.
Kevin & Rachelle says:
I don’t think I could have felt more comfortable having to leave our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Rosie with anyone else but Monika. She and her husband have created a wonderful environment for visiting dogs and Monika’s sensitive and warm energy put Rosie at ease almost immediately upon meeting her. This is not the norm for Rosie. When I picked Rosie up she was calm, herself, clean and I was very happy.
Thank you so much Monika for your caring attention to our Rosie.
Bailey & Anita says:
We have been using Monika’s pet sitting services for several years, and wouldn’t think of trusting anyone else with our dog! He even gets excited when he realizes where we are going when we drop him off. We can just drop the leash and he will run to her front door! We know he must love staying with her!
Cosmo & Esteras Family says:
From the first visit we were impressed with Monika’s love of dogs and professionalism. Our pet has been staying with her since he was a puppy, and we have always been delighted with how accommodating Monika has been to our own hectic schedule. It takes a lot of the pressure of last minute business trips off to know that with one phone call we can be sure our little guy is taken care of. I would definitely recommend her service for a worry free trip.
Max Reid says:
Being a rat terrier, we know our dog can be a handful, but Monika still welcomes him into her home every time. She even takes extra precautions in making her home “pet safe” when he comes to visit – since he can always somehow get where other dogs can’t. It’s great that she can joke about things he does that even make us feel like pulling our hair out. She says that it makes up for all the mischief with cuteness when he curls up next to her on the couch and rolls over for a belly rub. I guess that’s why we love him too! It is good to know he is just as well cared for at Monika’s home as ours.
