We are a dog-loving family-Mom, Dad & 11 year old daughter. Mom & Dad grew up with dogs & have many years of experience. We have cared for almost 150 different dogs so far of all different sizes, ages, breeds & temperaments. Shortly after we joined Dog Vacay they highlighted us in their monthly blog-take a look:
We live in the Gateway area of Fort Myers in a gated community. Our house is a 2,500 square foot single family home on 1 level (non smoking) with screened in lanai, pool & alarm on 1/2 acre-plenty of room for running around. Dogs that can swim are welcome to swim with us in our pool!
We work from home, so your dog will have lots of attention & love while he or she is here-they become a member of our family! Please know that your dog will supervised by an adult at all times.
