Currently I am working from home & the dogs will have me around all the time.
I have a wonderful large fenced in back yard for lots of running & playing. My Macy (beagle) loves to lay around in the sun & there are many spots in my home for everyone to enjoy. I have had dogs my whole life & have cared for other dogs for many years. 4 legged family members are always welcome here! Just ask my friends (see pics)
Since I am working from home I do have some extra time to spend during the day! (No Commute Time - smile)
If you 4 legged family member needs some thing extra - let's discuss!
ALL our puppy guest must be "business" or "potty" trained!
NOTE: RAVENS home football games - I will be gone all day - this is the only time your pup will be alone longer than a couple hours.
I do have a medium/large crate available in my den area if you need it. Macy has toys she will be happy to share. Picture of the den area is the last 3 pictures shown & is where the dogs hang out on their dog beds.
My back yard is large & allows all dogs some privacy for "business" as well as lots of room to run & play. The pool is currently CLOSED & in fall/winter it is covered with the extra strong "hold an elephant" cover so there will be no problems. In the summer when the pool is open we will talk about your pups water interest before they come to stay.
The pool is NOT for dogs - it has a liner so dogs CAN NOT go/get in. Pool liners are very expensive. Please let me know if your dog has been known to swim!! Thank you.
I invite you & your family to come by my house to check it out! Meet & Greet are wonderful & important for all of us to feel good about booking your family member in. It also makes it less stressful if you pup has already been here.
I am located very close to BWI airport - right off of Rt. 97. so it is convenient to dropping your pup off on the way to the airport. For early drop offs or late pick ups - we can discuss.
PLEASE note that booking overnight is for 24 hours - sure we will discuss your situation - flight times/traffic - no big deal - but some people have taken advantage......so I must put this info in here so there is no misunderstandings or hurt feelings. Most importantly - the premium insurance for your 4 legged family member is for the 24 hours booked only! I may ask to send you a Custom Quote for a half day or if it’s a late night pickup, I may ask that your pup be booked & stay an additional night.
I just created a custom link - which should save you $ when you first sign up for DogVacay only - so please share it with your friends.
Please make sure your profile is filled out regarding your dogs shots, behavior. Also since my yard backs up to woods - make sure flea & tick protection is on your puppy. Never had problems - but better safe than sorry.
I provide a safe home environment for all our 4 legged guests.
When bringing your pup over for their vacation:
please pack bed, food, bowls, treats, favorite toy to help make your pup feel secure while you are away.
Always pack some item - bed, towel, shirt that smells like them & you,
I have found this to be reassuring & lessen any stress that the pup will have being away from you!
Your 4 legged family member will be treated as family here too!
Thank you for thinking of us.
We look forward to meeting you all & making new friends.
