I invite your dog to be a guest in our home. We live in a quiet neighborhood. We have a large, fenced in 75' x100', back yard that your dog will have access to 24/7 through a dog door. The back yard is double gated for extra security. Your dog will have free run in the house or back yard. Our dog, Tina, get's along famously with all dogs and so does our cat Happy. I have two active children that will give your dog lots of love. We often take hikes at Indian Valley Open Space.
December, 2016 Update: I currently have no dogs at my house because my beloved dog Tina recently got her "wings". She was an amazing dog that helped me host many doggie guests. She was always gracious and accepting of all dogs that passed through our house. I will miss her but am heartened knowing she'll be waiting for me when it's my time to get wings. I look forward to continue hosting guest doggies in my home.
We are an active household that practices a tried and true routine that dogs feel comfortable with. Feeding occurs at the same time morning and night. The dogs always get lots of love first thing in the morning. Hikes usually in the morning or sometimes in the afternoon. Younger dogs may rough house in the backyard while older dogs tend to snooze either in the house on their bed or somewhere in the garden. With the doggie door it's their choice.
If you prefer, I can come care for your dog (or other animal) at your home anywhere in Novato.
I grew up in upstate NY with 20 horses. My family owns Juckas Stables a horseback riding stable in New York established in 1965. We always had a family dog and cat in our home in addition to the animals at the farm. I have first hand experience with rabbits, ducks, chickens, sheep, a donkey, a pig, and of course...lots of horses.
I moved to Marin County in 1993. I worked at the Marin Humane Society for a total of 8 years. 5 years as an Animal Control officer, 1 year in bookkeeping and 2 years managing the spay/neuter clinic.
I understand dogs well and will make sure your dog is comfortable during his/her stay. I can help care for other animals as well. Contact me anytime.
