Hi there! We are a husband-wife team who absolutely love dogs and traveling, so we know what you're looking for: a home environment where your dog is loved like family and hosts who help you have peace of mind while separated from your furry loved one. Look no further for a vacay host for your dog! What sets us apart:
-We only take ONE owner's dog/dogs at a time. We are one of the few boarders to have this policy. No more than 2 dogs accepted from same owner. This allows us to give our sole attention to your dog without worrying about how they might interact with someone else's pet.
Drop off/pick up: If no overlap with another booking we can make exceptions on this but generally drop off from 2pm-9pm and pick up from 7am-2pm (note: we may be out and about on Sunday mornings for several hours). Please let us know your drop off/pick up times when booking or requesting!
-Jack, our 5 year old rescue lab mix, is a medium size at 60lbs and gets along great with all dogs! He is super friendly, gentle, and loves to play. You will love him and your dog will, too!
-We have a large fenced-in yard for plenty of exercise and safety & lots of playtime with Jack! We do not leave the dogs outside while we are gone, and we do not require your dog to be crated while we are out of the house.
-Daily photo and/or video updates of your dog for you while vacaying with us. We'll send you lots of cute photos of your pup and updates for your entire trip via text or email (some examples above of past guests)!
-Our house is located on a quiet street in unincorporated Dekalb right between City of Atlanta border and City of Decatur. If coming from the interstate, we're about 3-5 min off of exit 61B/Glenwood on I-20.
-One other adult family member (Dan's sister) lives with us who also is a dog lover and is willing to give lots of belly rubs and pets but she is not the one who would be caring for your dog.
-We are only willing to host dogs that are spayed & neutered.
-We are willing to host all sizes, ages, and dog breeds! We LOVE big dogs are not intimidated by larger, strong dogs (or small dogs with "Napoleon complex", haha!).
Other details to know about booking with us:
-We require a short meet and greet with your dog before booking in our home or at a dog park.
-Your dog must have paperwork showing immunizations are up to date (can be emailed), and must be on some type of flea medication.
-We do not take any dog with a bite history of biting humans, unless your dog protected you from getting mugged or something. :-) Dogs who have bitten other dogs will be taken on a case by case basis.
-At this time we do not accept puppies less than 2 year old. As Jack has become more middle-aged he just doesn't match up as well with that endless-energy level! :-)
Send us a message or a meet-n-greet request today! We're happy to answer any questions you may have.
*Our calendar is updated frequently, but we fill up quickly, so be sure to confirm availability with us for your dates! Please verify availability for blue/available days as we may have some folks who have already been communicating about those days but have not officially booked yet. Thank you! :-)
*Our silly Jack set up an Instagram account! Follow him @Jack_the_Lab_Mix to follow all his shenanigans and excitement about his friends that come to stay!
