Hi and welcome,
My name is Carl.
I've been around dogs my whole life and have personally been taking care of them for over 20 years.
My family of five includes myself, my wife, my 12 year old son, our dog Paka and cat Ryu. This means that if your dog will be staying over, they will have to be okay with my cat.
Outside my home, I will work with dogs of all sizes and breeds.
But Boarding will be limited to those under 20 lbs or exceptionally mellow large dogs after a successful meet-and-greet.
My Experience is as follows:
*I have personally raised German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Labradors and various mid-sized Mixed Breeds in packs of 2-7 individuals at a time, but have currently down sized to my very mild tempered Pomeranian Paka.
*The largest breed I've worked with would be the colossal Cane Corso Mastiff.
*Experienced in caring for very young puppies and elderly dogs
*Have also raised many other animals, including birds, reptiles and fish. I just love animals, and often prefer their company to that of people :).
*I am willing to provide daycare for large dogs, but will only board those under 20 lbs overnight. Exceptions can be made, so we can talk about it if you're interested.
Here is what I can provide:
*When your pet is with me in my home, they will always be within reach of my attention since I mostly work from home.
*They will be free to hang out with me while I sit at my computer and work in the living room. My home is a peaceful environment!
*Come walk time, I happen to live in a beautiful and easy-to-access valley close to Mililani Tech Park. It's a great dog-friendly neighborhood for cool shaded walks throughout the day. (I will adjust the number of walks to your dogs needs)
*Since my Pomeranian likes to play, I will also involve your dog in our frequent play times if they are up for it.
*Working from home can be a drag! So if your dog travels well, Paka and I like to mix things up by going to a park nearby.
*I also have legal access to 5 acres of private land just a couple miles from home where Paka and I also like to go to really run wild.
*If your dog is staying for the weekend, I often go to Kailua beach and will gladly bring your pup with. Sometimes I also go to the beach on weekdays. I will return your doggy to you clean if they get salty!
*Outside my home I will work with dogs of any size that are friendly and well mannered.
*In my home: I cannot afford to board larger dogs if they are in any way aggressive. My Paka is a very small Pomeranian and I have a cat too, so sociable dogs of any size please!
*Since my home is not very big, Boarding preference is for the smaller to mid sized dogs for now, but we can talk about that more if your dog is mellow enough.
Exceptions can be made provided that Paka and I meet your dog prior for me to decide.
*Pets with Separation Anxiety can be accommodated as long as I don't have other dogs at the time or feel that the ones in my current pack display compatible temperaments.
* Happy to take care for elderly or disabled dogs, as long as they do not have issues with incontinence or dementia resulting in aggression.
*No dogs with excessive drooling habits
*House trained dogs only, None that will destroy furniture/not use to indoor living situations.
*No dogs with strong pray drive that will want to kill my cat
*Only clean and not overly smelly dogs is always my standard. Bath can be provided for extra $15 if staying overnight.
