I am experienced with all kinds of pets and dog personalities! My home is a beautiful countryside home with plenty of fenced space for free play as well as acres of fields for exploring and playing fetch. Walks will take place only in off leash dog parks and forest pathways, no street walking as I find it less fun for the dogs. Yard space is shared with landlords two friendly Australian Shepherds, whether or not they will be out in the yard with the Boarders is situational given that they get along, if not their dogs will be let out at separate times. A typical day includes plenty of outdoor time and at least one long 2 hour walk in the evenings. I work from home so pets needs are always attended to. My friendly German Shepherd/Husky mix is an energetic companion that will provide hours of social play with your pooch. Im happy to look after all other animal types as well. There is also a rabbit in my home, he is comfortable with dogs but will be separated if needed. Willing to work with training preferences (not allowed on furniture, etc.) and night time crating or free range is at owners discretion.
Drop off/Pick up times are as follows:
-Tuesday-Thursday Drops offs must occur after 6:15pm, all other days drop offs may occur at anytime
-Pick ups must occur before 1:00 pm accept on Tuesday-Thrusday when pickups will only take place after 6:30 pm.
-If for whatever reason a pickup is delayed past 1:00 pm on Friday-Monday, . owners will be asked to pay the $25 daycare fee for that day and must have . this amount ready in cash at time of pickup
-Owners are expected to be upfront and honest about any special needs their pet may have prior to drop off day. This includes but is not limited to; separation anxiety, severe fear or aggression towards other dogs, destructive behaviour, counter surfing or a history of poor housetraining. I need to be aware of any instances of such behaviour and their general frequency of occurrence BEFORE drop off so I can ensure the safest environment for your pet and protect my home from damage. It is important to me to be preemptive and address possible issues before they occur, not after. As such:
-ALL first time bookers are asked to provide a $40 deposit in cash at time of drop off, which will be returned to them at pick up given that no unexpected behaviour occurred during their dogs stay and no damages occurred. (Mild fear or aggression is typical of all dogs when coming into a new environment and does not count as grounds for withholding the deposit, nor does minor counter surfing instances; this is only a last resort measure for dogs that do excessive damage to my home/property or that cause excessive work for me during their stay, such as animals that cannot be left unattended in yard or crated and those thats cause major carpet stains at irregular times without expressing their need to go out)
If you have any questions/concerns about these policies please feel free to send me a message and we can discuss your individual concerns further :)
