About Lilypaddy's Bed and Biscuit sm



Located in Woodstock, I’m a mature semi-retired adult who is very responsible and dependable. I’m someone who is dedicated and conscientious in my approach to pet care. I take the care of your pets very seriously.  I offer pet/house sitting and  I welcome a small number of pets into my dog-friendly home. Specializing in small dogs weighing less than 25 pounds, my clients leave with peace of mind knowing their beloved canine companion is a welcomed guest. Whether in your home or mine, I strive to provide a safe, comfortable and calm day/overnight boarding environment designed to be as stress-free and nurturing as possible. I find it exceptionally rewarding to care for and nurture any dog who wouldn't be happy in a conventional dog boarding kennel. By limiting my care to small dogs it helps create an environment of calm cohesiveness and better enjoyment for all.  I have found that many pet parents of small dogs appreciate the fact that their little ones will be surrounding by dogs of the same size. 


Lilypaddy's is inspected and licensed by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and Cherokee County.  I'm also fully insured. 


If your dog is my guest they will enjoy safe, carefree living in a lovely, clean, non-smoking home. I'm home virtually round the clock to supervise, care, give comfort and attention to your pet.

Every effort is made to duplicate the home environment and routine your pet is accustomed to and to make them feel at home. He/she will be given the same affection, understanding and love I give my own pets. There is lots of quality cuddle time and your dog is even invited to share sleeping space. Life experiences make it second nature for me to be nurturing and observant, sensitive to the needs of my guests, and adept at taking charge and making solid decisions both routinely and in emergencies.

My family style accommodations ensure that your dog gets the love, exercise, and attention he/she deserves 24 hours a day. Your dog is treated like one of the family, receiving individualized attention while being surrounded by the comforts of a home environment.

It's especially rewarding for me to establish long-term relationships and work in partnership with parents who care deeply about the welfare of their pets and want only the best for them. My priority, second only to providing exceptional pet care, is putting your mind at ease so you can enjoy worry-free time away from your loved one.  Pet parents appreiciate the fact that I require a "Meet and Greet" prior to boarding to ensure compatibility for the safety of all my special guests.


My home is cozy, cheerful and very dog-friendly. It’s a one level ranch, with no stairs, which is particularly good for senior and small dogs. I have 3 doggy doors, 3 separate outdoor play areas, and a secure, locked 6ft privacy fence surrounding my property. It’s ideal for small dogs that enjoy companionship, personal attention with built-in buddies to play with. This is the perfect set up to socialize your little furry friend either for the day or for sleepovers.

This is a cage free dog boarding environment. But if your dog is used to calling his/her crate "home", of course they will be accommodated. Sometimes it's nice to have a place of one's own to retire to!  If your fur kid doesn't like the "Big bed"  I have many cuddly beds and soft blankets.

Please call me at 770-591-4811 to discuss your pet/house sitting or boarding needs and/or set up a meet-n-greet. Excellent references are available upon request. You may also view the comment section on my web site and see the type of care your pet will receive during their stay.


Pick up and drop off hours are flexible and I'll make every effort to accommodate your travel schedule. Please see the "Rate Page" for more detailed information.

Reservations are necessary and in your best interest, since I only take a limited number of dogs and I tend to fill up fast. Last minute care can be arranged if I have space. Doggie Day Care is available in addition to sleepovers. My rates are very reasonable; they vary slightly according to length of stay, number of pets, care requirements and weekend/holiday periods. Frequent visitors and longer stays will be determined individually, I’m always willing to work with you.


Rules are boring, so I try and keep them simple:

I do ask that your pet be current on their vaccinations and flea treatments, be housebroken and spayed/neutered. They must also be non-aggressive, in other words they need to play nice with others and be under 25 pounds.
