Why kennel your best friend when you can leave them with a loving family? My full time job is caring for your dog, and it is my goal to give them the best care possible. I have a large fully fenced 1.4 acre property and a cozy pet friendly home so whether your dog is active and adventurous, a snuggly couch potato or something in between they will feel right at home.
In order to accommodate dogs of all sizes and temperaments my home and yard can each be divided into 3 areas. Small or shy dogs can safely be kept separate if necessary. I take up to 3 families of dogs into my home at one time and do my best to meet and assess each dog's temperament before their stay to ensure I have the space and resources to make each guest comfortable.
During the stay
I spend time outside with the dogs playing fetch, filling up the kiddie pool, opening up the fenced pasture for exploring, and just helping them have a blast! Depending on their leash skills I also take dogs for walks down the country roads where they can see and smell pheasant, the neighbors horses, cattle and many other interesting things. In the house pups can make themselves comfortable on the couches, dog beds, on the big human bed, or inside kennels. Some dogs also seem to love warming up in front of the pellet stove during the colder months. I keep a wide variety of toys available and dogs have access inside and out at their leisure.
I have experience, and enjoy caring for pets with special needs: paralysis, incontinence, deafness, special diets, medications and more. We can often accommodate intact dogs, but this is subject to having no previously scheduled un-altered guests during your dog's stay. I also have a special place in my heart (and lots of experience) caring for rabbits, rodents and other small pets. Due to allergies I cannot have cats as guests in my home, but if you live locally I am happy to drop-in to check on your cats at your home.
Will you be gone an unusually long day for work? Does your pup get bored and tear up the house? Are they lonely all day? I also do daycare! Bring your dog to play for just the day.
We are located 10 minutes from I-5 exit 88 and 14 minutes from Great Wolf Lodge. My drop off and pick up times are very flexible. Message me so we can set up a Meet and Greet, I look forward to hearing from you.
What Mandee would like to know about your dog
All dogs in my care are required to be fully up to date on vaccinations and current on flea medications. It is also important to note that I have two children (4 and 6 years old) and, although they are dog savvy, this may not be a good fit for every dog.
Every dog has his quirks and your dog's stay will be more enjoyable for everyone if I know them from the start. Are they food aggressive? Do they get anxious when left alone? Are they older and get fed up with more playful, younger dogs? Can they open doors? Do they go through cupboards in search of food? (our food cupboards can be shut with magnet locks if necessary) Are they an escape artist? Every dog is different and it is helpful to know in advance how best to care for them.
