I have always been a huge animal lover my whole life! My first job ever was working with dogs at a Dog Day Care, playing with and taking care of several breeds/ages all day. I used to own a cat and have visited/check-ups on family and friends cats while they were out of town. I also have been around horses for about 20 years (fed and cleaned stalls) and owned my own. Now I only have a 2 year old Lab/Aussy mix that I rescued and she loves to play!
I live on a private road on the Fox River, so if your pooch loves to swim, they can frolic in the water and swim! My yard is not fenced in, but I do have leads for those explorers on 2 acres. I am often outside and have frisbees, a herding ball, and tennis balls that we love to play with! During the spring, summer, and fall, I love to take the dogs walking/running on all the hiking trails that are located in several areas of the Vernon Marsh.
I allow your furbaby to roam and lounge anywhere in the house: couchs, beds, recliner, floor, carpet. I do not keep pets blocked in a room or caged (unless parents request it), I 100% allow playing and barking to the fullest. I am well aware that some pets may need training or to be persistent with training that you are working on with your pooch! Having fostered/rescued dogs, I understand the needs and challenges of some dogs. Every dog has their own personalities, I am fully committed to making your furbaby and yourself feel comfortable with any specific needs they may have.
Have a pet other than a dog? Maybe it is a cat or a horse? I am available to travel to take care of your other pets while you are on vacation. This includes anything from (for cats) feeding/watering, cleaning litter boxes, play time to (for horses) feeding/watering, cleaning stalls, exercising them two to three times a day.
I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pets!
