Your home away from home for your beloved pet. Cody and I absolutely love having other dogs here and your pup will be loved and cared for like one of the family.
I have had dogs of my own for 25 years. I have been taking care of friend's dogs as well as fostering dogs of all shapes, sizes and ages for the past four years, so have a wealth of experience dealing with all different personalities and needs. I am certified in animal first aid and CPR.
I live in a single family home with a fully fenced back garden so your pup will be able to run around the garden or just laze on the deck while we are home. They will usually get two walks each day and have numerous opportunities to go out in the garden under supervision. I never let them out unattended. I often take my dog and the fosters to Cabin John Park as well as on shorter hikes with me, so if your pup loves the great outdoors, let me know and we will try to fit that in.
I am a teacher but have quite flexible hours which enable me to get home at lunch times to give the dogs potty breaks. I am home during school holidays as well as at weekends.
Cody is a rescue dog from City Dogs Rescue. He was my first foster and never left! He is now five years old and loves having friends of all shapes and sizes come to stay. He is amazingly patient, and loves to play with his friends, but also understands when they need their space. He is amazing with smaller dogs despite his size. He has the run of the house and sleeps with me so if that is what yours is used to, that's fine. If they are crate trained, have restrictions on where to sleep, or space restrictions, just let me know. I am fine administering medications should your pup need them.
You can rest assured your pup will receive the best care possible here with me.
Your dog must be up to date on all shots including bordetella. I recommend they have a canine flu vaccination too.
