I am NAPPS Certified, and dog and cat first aid and CPR certified.
I take my four legged guests well-being very serious, and provide a home environment with love, exercise, playtime, and individualized attention. Your dog is part of my family and treated like my own!
My house is a cage/crate free environment and dogs are welcome in every room. I have beds set up in all rooms but I often find my visitors on the couch. I do not crate dogs unless requested by the owner and the dog brings his crate with him. Some dogs feel more comfortable sleeping in their crate from home and it is part of their routine.
I am experienced with administering medicine and caring for special needs and aging dogs. I have experience with dogs suffering from separation anxiety and go out of my way to make them feel comfortable, calm and secure.
A typical day includes supervised playtime in my fenced in backyard, and a 3-5 mile walk at Kensington, Island Lake, or Milford trail. All dogs receive a bath as needed and I will continue any basic training and potty training while the dogs are staying with me. I am home 24/7, and never leave your dog unsupervised in my backyard, or let him/her off leash during our walks. Your dog’s safety, health and well-being are my top priority. All services are included in the daily rate.
I understand that leaving your dog to enjoy a vacation can be stressful; I provide daily updates with pictures or videos and do not mind phone calls to ease the pet parents mind.
My dog's love the company of all size dogs, do not mind sharing their home, and are happy to include visitors in playtime. However, if the visitor dogs rather not join them in play and watch instead, they just continue playing with each other until our guest feels comfortable to join.
We love and welcome all dogs, from couch potatoes to rambunctious puppies, as long as they are not aggressive, and do not try eating our cats!
