I have been taking care of dogs 50+ years, having bred and shown my Collies in the past and have had dogs all my life. I am a retired CNA and am home most of the time and I know how to give shots and medications and can do special needs. I have no problem with insulin injections. I have 1 gentle Collie and 4 indoor only cats of my own and they get along very well with each other. I am very concerned about the comfort and happiness of your dog and will provide the dependable care and attention that he/she requires. If you are local I require a meet and greet prior to boarding so you can see where they will be staying and ask me any questions you may have and I can make sure everyone will get along.
My house is very secure and has a large, fenced-in backyard so the dogs can run free and play. This is a kennel free home unless you crate your dog in your own home, whereupon you will need to provide me with your dog's crate. The house itself has tile floors throughout in case of accidents. There is a toy box with toys in the living room for playing indoors. Your dog will be a part time family member and taken care of as if he/she were my own.
I am happy to stay in close contact with you with pictures and emails so you can have complete confidence that your dog is being well taken care of and is as happy as can be.
I have my own transportation, in case of emergency, and have a valid drivers' license to drive it.
I do ask that you provide food, food bowls and vet info, if local, and any bedding or special toys your dog uses. All dogs must be current on rabies vaccinations and flea/heartworm meds, as is mine.
