**I have recently changed my requirements to accept only dogs up to 40 lbs. I will make exceptions for established guests :) If you are unable to book because of the size limit, please send me a message and I will temporarily cancel the restriction.**
Send your canine to Camp at the Cottage! I am a teacher my dogs are Gertie and Edie. My Gertie is 9lbs, and "though she be but little, she is fierce!" (Shakespeare) Edie is 10lbs and happy second of every day. We live in a tiny little house, with a tiny little yard, but we have a great big life! Now that it's summer, most days are spent relaxing in the yard or inside the house, depending on the temps. I have a fenced in yard, but the dogs are never out there unsupervised. If you are looking for daycare only, the rate is between $15-20, depending on whether or not it is a school day. If I am at school and your dog is simply going to hang out at my house and play with Gertie and Edie, please request a quote so that I can discount the rate to $15.
I was brought up in a home with never less than two dogs, so I have a lifetime of experience. As long as your dog is dog-friendly, s/he will have a nice time! I have a dog door to a 4x8 pen outside for Gertie and Edie while I am out. If your dog feels more comfortable or has destructive behaviors, you can bring a crate as well.
I have recently added a black cat to our family-- Moira the panther keeps the vermin down :) She's pretty chilled out as far as cats go, and she's got her own gated room that serves as her dog-free zone, should she need it. She often chooses to pretend campers are not even visiting, and spends an entire visit in "her room."
I am comfortable caring for elderly and injured/recovering animals and many special needs. I have a car in case of a veterinary emergency. I can send photo updates as often as you like :) Enjoy the photos of The Cottage and some of my favorite guests.
