My name is Erika and I live with my husband Mark and our lab Loki. Loki is our baby and he goes with us most places most of the time. He loves a playmate though and we have so much fun when there's more than one dog around! We are so excited to meet your pup!
I have always had a dog in my life. I wouldn't know true happiness in life if it weren't for my dogs! I grew up with an Australian Shepherd, followed by a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix and a 110 lb Lab/Shepherd mix. Along with the cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, birds, mice, turtles and a tarantula that made up our childhood menagerie! Now, I'm lucky I've got Loki and we are always happy to have a four-legged friend or two to join in our adventures!
We are happy to board your best pal overnight or for daycare. We go for a minimum of four potty walks a day, with at least one of them being 30-60 minutes. I'm also happy to come walk your dog during the day while you're at work or on vacation or if you just need to work late. We walk at your dog's pace, for exercise or just to stop and smell the roses.
We love to hike, so if that's something your dog likes, we'll bring him/her along! For overnight boarding, your dog will be home alone no more than 4-5 hours at a time (we can come home from work during the day) and we would always be home for dinner time, walk and bedtime. In some cases, if you have a happy, socialized dog who just loves to be around people, I can also take him/her to work with me.
Most days consist of snuggling in the morning, a potty walk, breakfast, play, lunchtime potty walk, afternoon play, long walk, dinner and more play, rest, final potty walk then bed! On days off, we add a hike and/or longer walk. We have a couple of parks/dog parks nearby. Just ask for details...we're happy to go where your dog will be most comfortable.
We have a patio for the dogs to get some sun and fresh air and I am always with them if they want to be out there.
Your pup can sleep on the sofa, the bed, the floor or a bed you provide. Or if they aren't allowed on the furniture at home, we won't let them either! We want your canine kids to be as happy and comfortable as if they were at home with you!
Just let me know your needs and we will work with you! I always prefer a meet and greet whenever possible to make sure the dogs will be best buddies!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
