It's time to ditch the jail cells/kennels/cages and GoLucky!
CampGoLucky is the perfect place for pooches (and parents) to come for fun and love!
The first thing you'll see when you drop off your four legged love-fluff is a corner house with built in garage and big, looong fenced-in, locked backyard. A quick ring or knock, and the introductions begin!
After the meet'n'greet, it's time for paws and shoes to hit the pavement. Your pooch and I go for a walk around the neighborhood, during which I take notes (the mental kind) about their personality: Do they start with the left or right paw? Do they pull on the leash? Are they bursting at the seams to go gO GO? How are they feeling today? Does that squirrel look good enough to eat?
And on and on...
Then it's back home for a long drink of cool, clean water, lots of love and tricks'n'treats. Once we're ready to run, we go out to the back yard for tug'o'war, catch and chase. We spend this time bonding with each other through play. Usually around this time the pooches slow down and want to spend some time in the shade or inside to catch some ZZzzzZZZzs.
After they get some energy saved up, it's out to Bear Creek Dog Park, with the windows down and snouts out. Inside the park, we work on socializing with people and pooches, and staying where they can see me and I can see them. This is excellent off the leash training! For my younger pups and seniors, I lay out my Polar Pooch beds under a shady tree (My younger pups may have to wear my extra-long, extra-strong lead to keep them out of trouble). We stay for 1.5-2 hours depending on the weather and energy. Then it's a quiet-sometimes wet-trip back home. Once inside, it's the best time for a brush or bath. We do more tricks'n'treats and toy time.
Before you come for your lovable fluff, we go for one more group walk to take in the sights and smells. At home, I gather their toys and they're ready for you with tail waggin', wet kissin', only for you hello!
If you have a few, I'd love to tell you about their day (and that squirrel), if not, that's ok too.
Now's the time to GoLucky!
Please speak to me directly if you are a Service Member that must attend training, is getting deployed, or going on TDY and needs to board their pet for the duration. I understand the difficulty and expense of needing someone to care for them while you're away (being former now married to active duty).
A bit about me:
I am a Masters of Herpetology and am a former Vet Tech with 2 years of experience. I have been fostering with my local Humane Society for over 7 years. Currently, I am pursuing my Doctorate in Neuropsychology and am working on the data entry and evaluation part (so I am at home and Love when my pooch & pooches want to play).
I offer special care for pets: recovering from surgery (bandage changes, wound treatment, etc); that need medicine (oral, topical & injectable); have blindness, deafness, other disability & mobility issues, suffer from dementia, incontinence, aren't all the way house trained; and have separation anxiety or pull on the leash.
Restrictions and Recommendations:
ALL PETS MUST BE CURRENT ON RABIES VACCINATION. I will NOT allow a pet that has not been vaccinated against Rabies into my home.
EXCEPTION: If you are a Service Member that must attend training, is getting deployed, or going on TDY and needs to board their pet for the duration; I will, when given documentation, allow your pet to stay under my care. This is only done when the Rabies vaccination is to be renewed 2 weeks prior to you leaving or while you are gone. At the soonest free or low cost vaccination clinic, I will have your pet vaccinated for Rabies. You MUST given written permission for me to do so.
Since your pet will be around other pets I strongly recommend that you vaccinate for Bordatella and Kennel Cough, as well as those recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). Please go to AVMA's website to view the recommended Vaccinations and Vaccinations Schedule.
