My husband Chris and I live in a three story townhome aka a doggy paradise with plenty of space for romping and roaming. We even have a spacious backyard for sprinting, playing, and lounging!
Our friendly Fairmount neighborhood is perfect for long walks and we're not far from Boat House Row and the Art Museum. We also frequent the Schuylkill River Dog Park often and would be happy to take our visitors with us. And if your dog is up for it, I'd love to take him/her on a run! All of the above with your permission only.
I have 15 years of dog care experience. Prior to adopting our "house dog" Harry, I volunteered with the Monster Milers for the PAWS Animal Shelter. Therefore I love dogs of all shapes and sizes - any breed!
Harry was rescued from Friends for Animals in North Carolina and joined our family in June 2012. For the two years he's been in our family I've blogged about him. Harry also is a dog that suffers from year-round allergies. I'm used to giving oral and topical medications and am able to give your dog the care he/she needs if necessary.
During your stay your dog will receive:
-Minimum 5 potty breaks in our fenced in yard
-24 hour access to fresh water
-Daily meal based on your dog's schedule
-Minimum one hour of walking
-Supervised playtime both indoor and outdoor depending on the weather
-Constant companionship - never alone for more than 4 hours at a time*
-Climate controlled environment (Central AC)
-Unlimited snuggles, hugs, and kisses
I'm flexible on check in and check out and I own a car in case of emergency, or in case you can't drop/pick up your pet. Rates are for one 24-hour period. Currently, we only board one dog per day.
I can send custom quotes depending on your needs!
*I have a 9-5 work schedule on weekdays but live close enough that I am easily able to go home for check-ups and walks. Most weekends we are home 24 hours for constant companionship. Please keep this in mind when looking for a sitter! If you have a super-active hyper dog that you need babysat during the weekdays, I would suggest going with a sitter who is there 24/7 :)
**Spayed/Neutered dogs only. House-trained. Please arrive with tags and make sure your dog is up to date on flea/tick preventative and please let me know up front if your dog has aggressive or destructive behavior.
