About Charles

21 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I'm a 40 year old self-employed professional working from home. My work is now focused strictly full-time on the overnight dog care business. We have plenty of space (4,600 sqft on 4 acres) and lots of love + attention to share. Your dog will go home happy and healthy after their vacation here! All ages + sizes may be welcome after an in-home meeting! Premium sensitive food, whole-food supplements & treats all-inclusive, if desired. We have plenty of space freely accessible inside and fenced outside for cage-free doggie comfort!

Food & airborne allergy friendly! HEPA air purifiers in every room plus central high-efficiency whole-house allergy filtration. Memory foam orthopedic beds in various sizes throughout the house. Blankets+mats laundered daily using the sanitize cycle. Our home is a cleaner, healthier, safer, more comfortable, home+yard all-inclusive environment that truly cannot be compared to any kennel or "luxury" boarding facility.

For well-behaved, calm and continent darlings, the entire main level of the house is open to them. I've made 1 of the guest bedrooms and bathrooms into a 200+ sq ft doggie suite that can be reserved/gated as a private retreat for only your dog(s). Otherwise this area stays open for any dog who wants to hang out in there. We also have special areas that can be set up for major incontinence, aggression requiring total seclusion, and post-surgical guests. A variety of flexible spaces exist that can be set up to suit most any special need or request.

We can venture out for long or short daytime walks...dependent on the dog's desire, age and ability...either around the property for just a few minutes...or in the quiet neighborhoods surrounding the house for 30-45 minutes. We have the flexibility to walk anytime during the day when weather permits.

The yard is 6' fenced including a wrap-around deck for daytime sunbathing (both sun and shade areas all day long), patio, trail and wooded area. Our 4 acre property has a wide variety of terrain for exploration in both fenced and un-fenced areas (with leashes, of course). Back yard and deck can be accessed without the use of stairs for dogs with mobility concerns. No stairs are required anywhere inside or outside of the house with the exception of just 1-step down into the carpeted sunken Great Room.

We have a preference toward senior dogs ages 7-17, but can sometimes accommodate younger, more active dogs depending upon the special needs of any existing reservations. For most dogs under the age of 7, trial daycare day will be required to best assess the dog's ability to adapt to our very low-key, relaxed senior dog environment. We have younger dogs that are thrilled to stay here, and we have had others that get bored because the seniors don't often run around or play.

Rates start at $45 and can range up to $60+ in some special circumstances. Some dogs (such as those with special needs, mobility issues, accidents or marking indoors, highly specialized feeding routines or 3+ feedings daily, multiple medications, injections, extreme separation anxiety, dogs requiring a private room or other time consuming situations will usually have higher rates based on the time and complexity of the services required. We can discuss the exact needs at a scheduled Meet and Greet at my house to determine a fair price for the services you and your dog require. Rates may be higher for some holidays and weekends. Let's discuss your specific times/dates and any specific type of care that your dog requires. I'm available most any time to meet with you and your dog(s) at my home. Flexibility and patience allows me to handle nearly any type of special care or attention that your dogs requires.

Charles provided an excellent boarding experience for our dog Buddy. He really enjoyed his time with the other dogs in Charles' home. Charles provided regular updates and photos that gave us real peace of mind. I would definitely recommend Charles provided regular updates and photos that gave us real peace of mind.

As always, Petey came home from Charles' house happy and healthy! He made new friends and was well looked after. We couldn't be happier!
