We are semi-retired, caretakers of a large riverfront home. We can't live without dogs, and love this idea of an Online Dog B & B! We understand how hard it is (expensive too) to leave a beloved pet in a noisy kennel full of lonely, barking dogs.
We have a large dog door from the kitchen out to open acreage, and a secure indoor/outdoor enclosure around back. There is also a chain-link "dog-run" which I would only use if your large dog became temporarily difficult.
I have taken on rescues and re-homing lately and so I am experienced. Our dogs quickly take their cues on Family (Pack) Etiquette.
PRICE: FIRST NIGHT $35, each additional night $25.
If your dog requires house-training (if I am required to clean a lot of messes) I hope you will tell me in advance, because that costs more.
FLEAS and TICKS: Please have prevention up to date, because I do not use any pesticides or chemicals in the lawn and there are ticks in the woods.
ROUTINE:I would like to reserve the right to meet you prior to agreeing, and certainly want to know details about your dog. If all goes well, and we make an booking, you bring your dog's food and bed and leash, tell me its habits, and then depart without fanfare.
Then we let all dogs run wild and play, wrestle, drink water and nap (unless of course your dog is elderly and only wants to poke around). We go on several walks per day around the property. If your dog is a runner, he must be confined to the fenced-in enclosure, or else stay on the leash.
When I leave for errands in town, I walk them first and lock them inside the house while I'm out. (I have tile flooring and remove all throw rugs prior to your dog's arrival.)
We might even take a drive to the park for variety and a longer trek.
Every day or so, I will text you photos of them having a great time while you are enjoying your vacation/out-of-town business.
