I am an energetic and devoted animal lover with experience caring for dogs, cats, and farm animals. I will treat your dog like a prince or princess, just like my bearded collie, Zeb, with lots of hugs and attention. He happily shares his toys and plays with any dog who enjoys the company. I love and have rescued all kinds of animals and live on a ranch, with fiber producing angora goats, llamas, and miniature donkeys. Dogs love to see the farm animals off in the distance.
I seldom leave the ranch and am here to supervise your pet. My non-smoking home is equipped with a monitored alarm system, that includes smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detection.
Each dog's stay is tailored their temperament, age, size, and energy level. We have a giant fenced yard where your FurBaby can romp during playtime or just visit for potty breaks, all while being supervised for safety. Dogs that enjoy other dogs can join in group play. In warm months, we play with the water hose and offer a dog bone shaped pet pool. Dogs that prefer to be couch potatoes are welcome to do so; your furbaby can hang out on the sofa and watch TV. Your dog will be offered a LATE night potty break-- no holding it for hours on end. Your precious furbabies will be in a heated and cooled home and supervised. Dogs sleep indoors.
For the past 42 years, I've always had a dog in my life, for which I was the caretaker (and sometimes several at a time, as I have rescued a few). I know your furbaby is a member of the family. I love my dog, Zeb, just like he is my little child and Zeb and I would love to meet and play with your dog!
Please bring your pup's food and a copy of his or her shot records. All dogs must be current on vaccines and have had a "kennel cough" vaccine in the past 6 months. Please make sure that your pet is current on flea treatment. I accept puppies over 4 months of age. This is for their safety, as their immunity isn't at its peak prior to this time. I prefer neutered and spayed dogs older than 6 months. Contact me to discuss any dogs that are not fixed, as they may require special accommodations.
You can bring a special toy if you like, just label it. When your furbaby dog stays with me, it really helps if you fill out the information on this form and bring it with you at drop off: http://blog-photos.dogvacay.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/vacay_hosting_form.pdf . Just paste the link in your browser to get to the Dog Vacay form about your pet's needs.
