Although business like, this is a hobby for Scamp and my enjoyment and stimulation. I accept select, well socialized and reasonably trained dogs and always require a pre-placement
I'm retired and up early with my dog, a mini schnauzer. My routine is to take the dogs into the fenced side yard about 6 am then for a minimum 30-minute walk about 8 am and 6 pm with a last outing about 9 pm. In between there is lots of outdoor playtime. I have a 2.5-acre lot as do all the homes on my quiet residential road. I back onto 350 acres of fields. As an adult, I have owned a couple Weimaraners, a Great Dane, a Dalmatian and a Lab/greyhound in addition to a couple of rescue dogs and a few cats. I got my first Mini Schnauzer when my Lab/greyhound was middle-aged. When my Mini Schnauzer passed I got my current dog, Scamp. I'm not as active as I once was but my routines and activities are suitable for an active smaller dog. I accept larger dogs and they get adequate exercise. If they come when called, I can also play with them in the large back yard (which is 3/4 fenced and has the house between it and the front, which is not fenced). I make provisions for small dogs, like using my tractor and snow shoeing to make paths through the snow. I have involved myself in various dog classes and training, to socialize and work my dogs, to broaden or refresh my knowledge and because they are fun. My dog is a great joy to me and a primary focus of my day, as are visiting animals. I will only accept one family's pets at a time unless all animals are adequately known to me.

I don't offer grooming but I do all my own dog's grooming including her teeth and nails and will take care of any immediate needs your dog has.

I'm doing this for Scamp's and my pleasure. I only accept friendly, totally house trained and reasonably other wise trained dogs. Vaccinations and an effective method of flea and parasite control are a must for your pet. Please confirm this when you arrange for a meet-and-greet.
I'm flexible regarding drop off time, but pick up is to be the same time of day as the scheduled drop off time or earlier. You may schedule a later pickup time for $5 per hour. If you're running late, please call and I will only charge daycare rates. In the case of extended stays, I normally offer an hour's leeway, more if I'm aware of particular circumstances. If you simply show up late, there is a $20 fee for up to 3 hours and $5 every hour after that. Since I turn away other customers once you book, I do not refund for early returns.

Your pets are never left alone until I know that they will be fine. I shop once a week and try to schedule appointments around any new bookings. Even then, I'm rarely gone for more than 3 hours. You will receive a handout at your meet-and-greet but if you would like it in advance, please contact me with an email address and I will send it.
Be sure to write down anything that will help me provide the best care.
My method of dog management is non punitive. On the very rare occasion I need to physically intervene with an over excited dog, it would be a brief holding by the scruff of the neck.

Daycare: I will do occasional daycare for regular customers. $5 per hour, $20 minimum and $40 maximum.

The real test for placing any pet with someone is how well the pet is when they come back. Bryher was calm, quiet and relaxed (for him anyways) and that says it all. A big thanks Neil.
This was our first experience leaving our puppy overnight with anyone. We were very happy with the care that neil provided. It was a home away from home experience for Sable. Neil was great with keeping us updated throughout her 9 day stay with photos and messages. It was definitely a positive experience for sable and our family! Thank you Neil and scamper for making Sable's stay a great one! She will be back again!
