I am a lifelong animal lover and have volunteered in the past to foster and rehabilitate cats and dogs for animal rescue groups. Your dog will be as well cared for in my home as he'd be in yours. I will make sure that you as an owner are completely at ease having your fur kid in my care, and I will send you updates as often as you'd like. I'm an artist who works from home and am available day and night to make sure your dog has an amazing stay with us. My husband Joe often works from home as well and loves to play with the different pups in our care. Our house has a fenced yard, and I walk dogs individually on the side streets in my neighborhood where there is a horse stable and outdoor school with chickens and alpacas to see and sniff from a safe distance. We had a reverse osmosis system installed in our kitchen sink, so your dog will only get the best filtered water while in our care.
Our basset hound Duke is friendly to other dogs, but a bit grumpy to human guests and will give you a proper basset hound howl upon your arrival. He loves having doggie friends over for sleepovers and will chase and wrestle with his doggie pals. He gets along well with large and small breeds because even though he is a large breed, he's a shortie who stands eye level with most smaller friends. He tends to be low energy most of the time and is easy going.
From taking care of so many breeds, I've learned that all dogs are different. Maybe your dog wants to endlessly play fetch, just wants to sit and chew on her favorite toy, or wants to curl up on someone's lap. We allow dogs on the furniture, and your dog can snuggle in bed with us at night if she chooses. Does your dog hate it when someone takes away his toy or really dislike having his belly rubbed? Telling me about your pet's quirks is really helpful as well.
My house has big, low windows facing the street, and I've found that the dogs love gazing out at passers-by. We spend much of the day out playing in the yard when weather allows, but dogs are never left unattended while outside. We have plenty of toys and soft places for dogs to rest. Your dog will get individual attention and care while staying with us because we care about quality not quantity and want to build lasting relationships with repeated guests. My garden home is a pup's paradise, and my regular clients say that their dogs are always excited to come over.
A meet and greet is required before I can commit to your dog's first stay, even for last minute bookings, because my highest priority is ensuring a great stay for all my guests. I might request having your dog over for a few hours (at no cost) before committing to an extended stay as dogs sometimes act differently in the absence of their owners. Some owners even prefer to book a day of daycare before a long stay.
I can accommodate pick ups as late as 9pm and drop offs as early as 7am. I will try my best to accommodate your scheduling needs.
I charge extra for holidays and for certain special needs dogs as well.
We were previously located in the Greenway neighborhood in Beaverton.
I offer a 50% discount on my pet portraits to all of my daycare and boarding clients.
