"THERE'S ONE PLACE LIKE HOME"
Please don't forget to read our FAQ/Policy.
In 2006, "I.O.U. Pet Care," formerly known as "Pet Passions Sitting Services," sprung to life. A passion for fostering homeless dogs and watching them reap the benefits of living in a home environment instead of a shelter/kennel helped Martha Dunne envision and establish a second home for "canines on vacation." Implementing the same concept of incorporating a homeless dog into their family, Pet Passions Sitting Services came to be.
On April 10th, 2015, they closed on a new "Home Away From Home," utilizing the home for boarding, daycare, and training. How exciting!!!! The new facility is now called "Inner Outer Utopia Pet Care or "I.O.U. Pet Care".
A visit to a local kennel, the sight of a gorgeous Norwegian Elkhound puppy, excitement ensued bringing him home; she named him Kaiser. Formal training followed. Shortly after, while volunteering at the local SPCA, the family adopted a girlfriend for Kaiser and named her Mia. Three months later, the Dunnes opened their home to homeless dogs, fostering various rescues and shelters throughout the tri-state area. Hundreds of dogs were re-homed in a decade, and some required rehabilitation. In 2006 Martha established a dog walking/pet sitting service called Pet Passions Sitting Services. She studied and attended workshops on dog behavior, dog training, and first aid for pets and continued volunteering at local shelters. By 2007, renovations were made to incorporate boarding and daycare-"Home Away from Home" for canines on vacation while maintaining outside services for cats, caged pets, and other critters. More than one thousand dogs later and hundreds of cats and animals, she has expanded by recently purchasing Pocono's first "house" (not a kennel) for canines on vacation called "Inner Outer Utopia Pet Care."
Martha is certified in dog training knowledge through Catch Canine Trainers Academy. She believes in positive reinforcement training and employs it with all dogs.
