Hello! My name is Stephanie and I would love to make your vacation a little less stressful. As the parent of two wonderful and spoiled pups, I know the importance of having your fur children in a loving, caring, and safe home when you are away. My goal is to not just provide your furry friend with a home away from home, but to make them feel like a part our family and give them lots of play time with our two goofy, somewhat lazy, and friendly dogs. Roxy and Mannie love to meet and play with new friends, and would be more than happy to entertain others and include them in their nightly ritual of cuddling. Mannie is big, but don't be afraid of his size, he's just a big goofball who likes playing with all dogs, large and small. Roxy's our little sweetheart and gets along great with everyone she meets. Although our dogs have a balanced play/sleep drive, Mannie is still young and playful, and thus if your dog does not like to play at all, is very shy, or is aggressive/ possessive, we may not be the best fit for you.
Dogs have been a part of my family all my life, and over the years I have had many breeds, sizes, personalities, and energy levels. In particular, I have experience with the special needs of giant and deep chested breeds, and if needed, I can tailor play times, exercise, feeding, and oral medication to any specifications.
My husband, Rob, and I live in a single family, single level home with a fully fenced back yard in a quiet neighborhood. There are lots of walking trails, sidewalks, and parks nearby, so daily walks and lots of play time in the yard will ensure that your pup gets plenty of exercise while staying with us.
As I want to ensure that your pup has the best experience possible, I do require a meet and greet prior to any booking, but because of my schedule can offer flexible meet times. At this time I am only accepting one non-resident pet at a time so that proper attention and care can be given to all furry family members, though special exceptions may be made on a case by case basis for sibling pairs. I also require copies of vet records for vaccination, medication, and location information, so that in the case of an emergency, I can take them to their regular care provider, if possible. You can rest assured that your family member will be in the best of care, as I will update you with pictures of our adventures while you're gone. All sizes of dog are welcome in our home, but they must be up to date on their vaccinations and able to socialize with other dogs. Unfortunately at this time we are not accepting puppies.
All food, leashes, collars, crates (if necessary), or special dietary treats (non-dietary treats are provided) would need to be provided by the owner, as I feel it is important to maintain as much regularity and stability as possible. I also recommend bringing at least a couple of favorite toys or a shirt or blanket that smells like them or you as an extra comfort for their stay with us. Our dogs have a bed in the living room as well as a bed in the bedroom which are roomy enough to share, but other beds are welcome as well to provide that extra piece of home. Otherwise your pet would be free to roam the house and cuddle with us on the couch as our dogs do.
I also offer special prices for extended stays (over 7 days) and repeat clients. Please message me for more information!
