We are a pet loving, non-smoking home and would love to watch your dog! We have always had pets, and currently own a male, neutered, sweet, friendly mini poodle named "Fluffy" who loves everybody and every animal. Our house is large and open, and our yard is 1/2 acre of mostly flat grassy areas with a completely fenced in yard, front to back. Our neighborhood is very safe and your dog will love to say hello to other neighborhood dogs.
I have three children ages 16, 14, and 11 who grew up with dogs in the house, and absolutely love animals and will spend lots of time playing with your dog too. Previous to Fluffy, we raised and loved a German Shephard mix. We enjoy visiting animal shelters, pet stores, and adoption events just to say hello and play with other dogs. We always entertain the idea of getting another dog, but petsitting has been a great alternative to having another dog in the house in the meantime!
I am a stay at home mom, so I will be around most of the day to tend to your dog. I provide reverse osmosis filtered water to your dog 24 hours a day, and we have multiple air filtration machines throughout the house as well if your dog is sensitive to dust or other air allergens. We have mostly hardwood floor throughout the house as well to keep the environment as clean as possible. If your dog is not eating his/her food, then I can provide him/her with the organic dog food that Fluffy loves to eat as an alternative.
My kids love to "train" our dog and other dogs, so we will make sure to not only provide physical outlets for your dog but also some mental stimulation as well!
Your dog will take 1-2 long walks a day in our child and pet friendly neighborhood, and 2-3 additional opportunities to play for extended periods inside our 1/2 acre fenced-in yard. My three children are very active and love to play with all animals, and will make sure to keep your dog busy and happy! Your dog will be allowed to sleep wherever you prefer. Our dog sleeps in a crate at night, so we are open to keeping a crate in our house, or a dog bed. Whatever makes your dog feel comfortable!
