We are Gareth, Danielle & Sasha. A dog loving Trio ready to love your hound when you aren't able. We've had dogs of our own for years until 12 months ago when Nemo departed to the great kennel in the sky. Nemo was a rescue who needed training and mentoring through his separation anxiety. He also needs meds in his final years so we are used to being hands-on for your dogs needs. We miss the walks, tickles and fun of having dogs around. We also used to volunteer at the Encinitas dog shelter.
Gareth works from his home studio at the end of the garden and is home pretty much all day most days. His door is open to the large, fenced and secure back yard and he likes nothing more than looking over to see hounds asleep on their beds in the corner of the office while he works. Your pooch will be free to wander the yard, access their bowl and catch a nap in the shade at their will.
Gareth & Danielle are both runners so if your dog if up for a run around the local parks and golf course, they are surely welcome! Your dog will get at least one good walk while they are here every day, maybe more if its a long day.
Note : our cats are indoor only and in the house. Your pooch will be in the studio and garden with Gareth so they actually will never meet.
We prefer that you have a crate for your dog so that if they need to be left for a short period in the daytime or do a sleep over that they can be safe and secure in a space that is theirs. We will of course talk with you about exactly what your dog needs so that they are never crated longer than you expect or wish for.
Our car is totally dog friendly. It's an SUV with ample truck space - perfect for trips to the trails, beach or parks. We will NEVER leave your dog in the car unattended, EVER.
If you have any questions, please contact us. We will want to meet you and your hound(s) prior to starting to care for them so that we and you can be sure that we are all on the same page and comfortable.
