*** We will be taking a slight break from hosting while we welcome our newest son to our family. Returning clients, feel free to check in and see if we are up for taking your pup. New clients, please keep us in mind for the future. We will be back just as soon as we feel settled. Thanks!***
Please consider my family for your pet boarding needs. We recently said goodbye to our puppy daughter of 14 years and miss having a dog around. We have a wonderful home in West Springfield with a huge backyard!
I am a wedding photographer so I work from home during the week. I also care for my 1 year old son. My husband and son are around on weekends so your pup would be very well supervised and cared for in our home. We will provide daily updates for you and treat your pup as one of ours.
If your furry friend is used to being a bit spoiled, we are not above letting a dog stay in our room or our bed at night. Our dog stayed with us ;)
Seniors pups: Our pup got a bit aggressive towards other animals in her old age so we are well versed in dealing with this. Stairs also became a problem for her so even though our house has stairs, it is well laid out for an older pup. The area where the dogs stay has no stairs (all one floor including entrance and exit to back yard). We have extra carpets available for pets who have a hard time on wood floors.
We also became very accustom to giving medications - both oral and injections.
We are willing to pick up pets outside of our 10 mile radius for an extra fee and are also willing to allow you to book our whole house (meaning no pets other than yours) for an extra fee. If you have a unique situation, please just talk to us about it and we will let you know how we can help.
* Please note that we do have a toddler in our home. Please only request a meet-n-greet with us if your pet is good around little ones. We obviously want each stay to be a safe stay for everyone (pups and kiddos included).
*We do require shot records when you drop off your pup. Please also check with your vet to make sure that they will allow us to bring your dog in if need be.
$40 per night per dog
All pets to be picked up by 4pm. Any pets that need to picked up later than 4, can pay a $25 late pick up. (This is not per pet)
There is an extra fee for holidays/holiday weekends of $10 extra per night per pet.
We are conveniently located not far off 495/395/95 in West Springfield bw Old Keene Mill & Fairfax County Parkway. Drop your pup off on your way out of town!
Two things that set us apart from other sitters:
1) We have large areas for the pups both inside and outside (fully fenced).
2) The fact that I am usually at home.
Your dog will rarely be left alone and will be greatly cared for so.....go ahead, give us a try!
