“Loving Your Dog as if they were my Own! <3”

I have had a passion for dogs as long as I can remember. I have owned two dogs growing up and have interacted with a variety of dogs throughout my childhood and adult years. I am not intimated by large, or small.dogs! I've learned basis training techniques such as sit, lay down, and not pulling. I also love to spoil dogs (within reason), so let me know how you like to treat your dog and I'll love to include that in their time with me!

Hi, my name is Romana and I grew up in a small village in Czech Republic with two dogs: German Shepard and mixed Russian Sheepdog. As a teenager I developed a passion for training dogs, so I learned basic obedience techniques and helped many families with their pups.Later I became a proud owner of Cocker Spaniel girl and she was my only baby. We lived in an apartment at the time, so I know all about the scheduled walks.No dog breed is too small or too large for me! I am great with puppies and enjoy training them as soon as possible. I am also able to take care of older dogs who require a special medical attention or are taking medications. I understand how important your pooch is to you and he/she will be in great hands with me. I am responsible, nurturing, loving, and extremely attentive. Also, I work from home so I can easily devote my time to your pet anytime during the day. I am looking forward to meeting your dog!

Dog Boarding in Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale? Might as well call it Fort Lauderdog, because this beach-side city is all about the pooches! You and your pup can do so much more in Ft. Laudy than just enjoy the sunshine and sand (though we definitely encourage that, too!) With pet-friendly dog boutiques, spas, and sidewalk cafes popping up all over this beach town, Fort Lauderdale is quickly climbing into the Fido-Friendly city category. Hundreds of pet-friendly hotels and doggy beaches make this the ultimate doggo spot. 


Plenty of dog organizations, non-profits, shelters, and puppy groups are helping this city climb from a dog-accepted to a dog-encouraged city. One of the organizations, Grateful Paws, is a self-proclaimed small but mighty non-profit that acts as a no-kill dog and cat rescue organization for South Florida. Comprised entirely of volunteers, the organization depends on foster homes to house pups while they seek out furrever families. Neglected, stray, or abandoned pups can find haven in the arms of the volunteers at Grateful Paws. 

Alternatively, the humane society of Broward County, one of the largest organizations, runs a 33,000 square foot, air-conditioned shelter, providing a space for over 300 dogs and cats. This organization provides shelter, aid, and responsible adoption for the animals that are put into their care, and that's a job they take seriously. In 2016, this non-profit organization re-homed about 7,000 animals! This group is not associated with the county and has full-time vet services available for their shelter animals.
