I am a dog lover (who isn't?) who has had dogs most of my life. Nothing makes me happier than a happy dog! I currently have a 2 year old Chocolate Lab, Kelly, who LOVES to play with other dogs and is happiest when we have canine guests. Your dog will be considered one of the family and will have an instant sister with Kelly!
I work from home, so other than occasional errands I will be home giving your dogs good attention and care. Our house sits on a gorgeous 6 acres of land with a pond and lots of grass and trees, so your pup will have plenty of room to run around. The yard has a 750 sq ft fenced in area, as well as a 60 ft dog run. All outdoor time will be supervised.
My dog and I take daily walks around the property or neighborhood. I also like to take my dog for a walk to Black Creek park at least once a week, so your dog may get the pleasure of that as well! I sometimes like to jog, so if your dog is able to jog we will do that, otherwise we will just walk.
For the rare times I do need to leave the dogs home alone, we crate our dog, so it is preferred that guest dogs also be crated unless you are confident that they will be calm and non-destructive when left home alone un-crated.
All dog breeds are welcome, but they must have a good temperament and get along with other dogs and children.
Note that our female lab is not spayed, so we need to know if your male dog is not neutered. We may need to decline non-neutered males depending on our female's heat cycle.
NOTES ON RATES:
All boarding reservations are for 24 hour periods. There is a 4 hour grace period on pick-up day, otherwise a $15 fee will be charged for that day (additional dogs = $10 fee). EXAMPLE: you drop your dog off for the weekend (Fri-Sun) at 2:00pm on Friday. Until 2:00pm Saturday would be the 1st 24-hour period, and until 2:00pm Sunday would be the 2nd 24-hour period. You would have 4 hours past 2:00pm on Sunday (i.e. 6:00pm) to pick up your dog at no extra charge, otherwise a flat $15 fee will be charged for Sunday.
I offer a 10% discount on stays of a week or longer.
I also offer discounts for additional dogs (2nd dog = $25 per night; 3rd dog =$20 per night).
For Daycare: Hourly daycare charge is $4/hour, with a minimum of 3 hours. Max you can be charged for a day is $24 (9 hours max).
1-3 hours = $12
4 hours = $16
5 hours = $20
6-9 hours = $24
