My name is Shana. I am a work from home dog mom to 3 lovely little dogs - Little Lady Silly Lily the mini poodle, Big Boy Angel the Cockapoo and Elway Smellway the Shihtzu.
I live in a ranch style house in Boulder Hill, Montgomery, Illinois with a large yard that is secured with a 6' privacy fence. My home is dog safe and there are no stairs in the house. I always supervise the dogs while outside to make sure they are safe at all times!
No dog is left unsupervised in any part of the house except my home office (which is full of dog beds and toys). For the safety of the dogs and to prevent property damage, when unsupervised, all Guest dogs will stay in a crate or exercise pen.
I require that all Guest dogs be neutered/spayed and potty trained. I am prepared for accidents because as you know, dogs have accidents sometimes! However, if a Guest dog repeatedly urinates inside the house, the Guest dog will have to stay in an exercise pen for the duration of his/her stay.
If a Guest dog should have to stay in an exercise pen for the duration of their stay, they will be in the same room with all the other humans and dogs in the house and will still receive lots of attention and affection and will also be let outside frequently for exercise and potty breaks.
At night, for the safety of the dogs and to prevent property damage, all Guest dogs will sleep in a crate or exercise pen in my bedroom.
We always keep a gate up in our front room so that no dog accidentally slips out the front door when the door is opened.
Your dog will get 2 walks per day and lots of potty breaks in the securely fenced back yard.
My significant other, Dave, with whom I share the house, is a huge fan of cuddling with dogs while watching TV at night. There will be an abundance of attention and cuddles!
My dogs are very friendly with other dogs and are very easy going and adaptable to different dogs and situations. If your dog likes to play, my dogs will play. If your dog likes to relax and nap, my dogs will gladly go along with that as well!
We cannot wait to meet you and your furry friend!
