***Daycare for weekends only.**
Hi I'm Ben, a 3rd year veterinary student at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at VT, with over 10 years of personal and professional animal care experience. Your dog will have a great time with me, my wife Sarah, and our sweet pup, Juniper!
Our townhome has enough space inside for dogs to play and a secure, fenced yard for potty breaks and outdoor time when the weather is nice. Our furniture is dog-friendly so there is plenty of time for cuddles. And your pups will be able to sleep comfortably in their crates in our spacious master bedroom where we will be able to attend to them at night if they need anything.
Dogs will get several potty breaks in our fenced backyard and 1-2 walks per day (depending on the day of the week and the weather). Our 2-year-old, lab-border collie mix loves making new doggie friends and will play and share her toys with your dog all day. We live near wide-open grassy spaces with paths that are great for safe walks, and a 5 minute drive away from the Blacksburg dog park that we visit frequently.
Best of all, you can rest easy knowing your dog is in the hands of someone that not only has experience caring for pets, but is also trained to take care of any illnesses or injuries that could arise. As a third year vet student, I have experience working with animals in need of veterinary care and am able to administer medications, transport to the VMRCVM vet hospital (5-10 minutes away), and be on the look out for anything unusual in your dog's health or behavior.
We have 2 cats who are pretty used to dogs, as long as your dog will not chase them excessively or act aggressive towards them. Pups must be up-to-date on all vaccines and must have a meet-and-greet beforehand. Intact dogs negotiable. No breed or size restrictions. We look forward to meeting you and your dog soon!
